This weekend is a weekend of Bliss. We don't have much scheduled which is pretty rare for a weekend in this house. I am hoping to get some stamping & scrapping done. Along with the laundry & some house cleaning. The weather is not supposed to be that great so I think I will just stay home & dream of somewhere warm. So to kick this Saturday off here are a couple of cards that you the awesome stamp set Bliss from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. Don't forget we are down to 1 month left of Sale-A-Bration 2011. Make sure you have got all of your favorites from the catalog. They will never be in another Stampin' Up catalog after this.
This first card is a rich razzleberry cardstock base. The second layer is early espresso. The next layer is very vanilla with the stamp in early espresso ink. The swirl & the butterflies are done in rich razzleberry. The swirl is made with the swirly sizzlits decorative strip die & just trimmed to fit once is is glued on the card. Then the butterflies are made with the beautiful wings embosslits die. Both dies work with our wonderful Big Shot machine. Then the frame around the words is early espresso and is actually from the stamp set baby blossoms from the occasions mini stamp set. You stamp the framed image & cut around it. Then flip it over so that the imaged side is actually down. Then the center is punched out with our large oval punch. The words are stamped with rich razzleberry ink & glued behind the frame. Then the frame is attached to the card with dimensionals.
Isn't this Bliss card just beautiful. It really makes me think Spring...although maybe I just am trying to wish Spring here. (smile). The base of the card is baja breeze, that has been edged on the one side with the scallop punch.The middle section layers are early espresso, crumb cake & very vanilla. The very vanilla piece of cardstock was stamped with early espresso ink using all the images from the stamp set Bliss. Then it is run through the Big Shot using the square lattice embossing folder. Then the top was sponged with baja breeze & the bottom with crumb cake. Then the word was also stamped on very vanilla with early espresso ink. It was also sponged with the same colors. It is glued on crumb cake cardstock that has been punched with the curly label punch. It is popped up over the piece of early espresso 1/8" taffeta ribbon with dimensionals.
I hope you have a very blissful weekend.
