I absolutely love the the simplicity of the Stampin Up Detailed Floral Thinlits DIe #141482 because the result is stunning when layered on top of a piece of Watercolor Wonder DSP (retired). I added a piece of coordinating ribbon to cover the seam. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes #128748 stamp set.

Today’s multi-layered birthday card is simple and happy! I used the now retired Watercolor Wonder DSP from Stampin Up and punched a peek a boo hole using the 1 3/4 ” circle punch to reveal the Calypso Coral paper below. I cut the “happy” using the Hello You Thinlits Die#137363 from Stampin Up. The birthday sentiment is from the coordinating Crazy About You #137137 stamp set. If you have been avoiding using the intricate thinlits like the Happy and other words from the Hello You set because they were too intricate to remove from the die; your life just got easier with the Stampin Up Precision Base Plate #139684 and the Big Shot Die Brush #140603. Both these tools make working with detailed dies a dream.
Today’s card is another great set that Cammie created using the same basic layout and then switched up some of the elements to change the look. For both cards she created a lattice border using the Chevron Border #132154 punch. She punched the border first and then used the individual leftover chevrons to create the lattice look. The main panel of each card is a piece of the fabulously yummy and soon to be gone Watercolor Wonder DSP #132994. The flowers were hand cut from the Watercolor wonder sheet of floral DSP. She then curled them and clustered them on the card front. She completed the card by adding Basic Pearls for the flower centers and then lattice intersections on the daffodil yellow card. The daffodil card also has colored pearls and Cammie used her Stampin Up reinkers to colorize them. Teaser alert… Coloring pearls and rhinestones will get easier with the Blendability Markers available in the new 2014-2015 Stampin Up annual catalog. To complete the card Cammie added a sentiment from the Sassy Salutations #126707 stampset.
For today’s card, I kept it simple but wanted to make sure I used up a scrap piece of the watercolor wonder DSP. This DSP is beautiful and will not be available after June1. That is very sad but wait until you see all the new and fun DSP and everything else in the all new 2014-2015 Stampin Up catalog.
For this card I used a white card base and a white panel and I used the Blossom punch #125603 in the panel to create a peek-a-boo flower. I then used the Occasions#129387 paper piercing template to outline the flower and then placed a scrap piece of Watercolor Wonder DSP #132994 behind the main panel so that the peek-a-boo hole is filled in with beautiful floral images from the DSP. I then stamped on gumball green (retiring cardstock color) a flower from the Petite Petals #133155 and then punched it with the coordinating Petite Petals punch #133322 and added it to the flower center. I finished the card by adding a basic pearl and a piece of retiring 3/8 “stitched gumball green satin ribbon #126848 and the Kindness Matters sentiment (retired stamp set)
Today’s card is the final Easter card I made using the Blessed Easter single stamp #133212 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog. I paired it with the fabulous Watercolor Wonder DSP #132994. I used the masking technique to stamp the flowers on the main panel and the words on the circle. I used the Stampin Up blender pens and daffodil and crisp cantaloupe inks to color the tulips. The sentiment was stamped in the gold ink and the Starburst framelit3132967 was cut using the yummy gold foil sheets #132622.
