I have seen many posts using the floral pattern of the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Designer Series Paper. So I thought I would create simple note cards using one of the border cuts.
The first note card is a A2 card base in Grapefruit Grove. I glued the border (Very Vanilla side up) to the card base and then added retired Perfect Plum enamel dots. Can you see the stamped small flower in the bottom right corner of the Very Vanilla card stock for the inside of the card?
Here I used Thick Whisper White card stock for the base of my card. Then added a layer of Gorgeous Grape card stock 1/8″ smaller than the base and a Grapefruit Grove layer 1/8″ smaller again.
I placed the border across the middle of the card (Very Vanilla side up again) and added the retired Perfect Plum enamel dots.
I love the combination of the Gorgeous Grape and Grapefruit Grove together.
These quick and simple note cards still have a wow factor due to the Delightfully Detailed DSP.

Today’s card is a CASE’d (Copy And Selectively Edit) project from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog (page 120).
The Tropical Chic Bundle is filled with beautiful palm fronds and hibiscus flowers. I was especially drawn to the square shaped die that I used on this card that allows DSP or card stock to peek from behind the fronds.
The fun and bright color combination used is Call Me Clover, Lemon Lime Twist and Flirty Flamingo.
A piece of 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon in Gray Granite peeks out from behind the sentiment also from the Tropical Chic stamp set.
Here you can get a peek of the inside of the card that was stamped with another frond and the hibiscus flower to carry the theme inside. Always fun to do.
I know this set will get a work out as the stamps and dies will add great color and texture to many projects. Is this set on your wish list or already in your craft stash?

I always love when new product gets launched yet there are still stamp sets I enjoy using. The So Succulent Bundle is one of those sets. While it is no longer for sale through Stampin’ Up!, my card might spark an idea of how to use a new set of floral stamps or inspire you to dust off your So Succulent stamp set and create.
The color palette used is So Saffron, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party. I stamped the larger flower on the base of the card using some masking to allow the flowers to overlap. Then I filled in with the smaller flower popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A few non-SU crystals were added for some sparkle.
Because I used retired product I was not going to showcase this card. However as I was getting ready to mail it I decided to snap some pictures in case I wanted to share it. So the photos are not great.
Thanks for stopping by.
I wanted to get in on two fun challenges this week. Inspire.Create.Challenge #19 which is a color challenge and the TGIF Sketch Challenge #163.
The color challenge has been open for a while and I have been struggling with inspiration – I guess that is why it is a challenge! This is why I enjoy participating as they stretch my creativity and hopefully make me a better crafter.
This morning the idea just came to me.
The card is pretty straight forward. The Orange slice is in Grapefruit Grove, the Lemon in Pineapple Punch, and the leaves in Call me Clover. The In Color Designer Series Paper Stack and the sentiment bring in the Blueberry Bushel. the finishing touch is a piece of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon for texture.
I added a little zest on the inside as well. Confession: When I stamped the sentiment (after stamping the lemon) I smudged ink SO I stamped the sentiment again and punched it out with a retired punch. Perhaps I should have simply started over but I hate to waste paper.
While I did not use all five colors I am pretty pleased with the result.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope your week allows you to live your life with zest!
