CCMC Saturday Blog Hop Nature’s Perfection

Wow…can you believe it is almost the END of Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration?  It is such a great time of year to pick up FREE product with a purchase!  We had lots of great sets to use, too!  Originally, the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team was going to focus on Big Day stamp set for this Saturday’s Blog Hop, but then Stampin’ Up! added Nature’s Perfection and For Being You stamp sets to our free selections…so this week our Design Team had the choice of what set to use on their card!  You’ve probably just come from Deb Currier’s Blog…love her For Being You card!


Sometimes a card just doesn’t seem finished and how it looked in my head, and I can keep adding and adding until I’m happy.  Well, this card ended up using MUCH more product than I normally do on a card!  But…it does feature several of the SAB products, so I’m ok with it!  I really do love how soft and delicate it turned out!


Nature's Perfection
Here are the details:

  • The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Blushing Bride, folded in half.
  • A 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White layer was stamped with the stem in Nature’s Perfection twice on the left side with Sahara Sand Ink (allow room for the DSP).  The tips of the flowers were colored with the Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker.
  • A 1 3/4 x 4 piece of Irresistibly Yours Designer Paper was colored with a sponge dauber and Blushing Bride Ink, then adhered to the bottom of the Whisper White layer.
  • The 7/8″ Scallop Circle was punched from Sahara Sand and the petals cut to resemble a flower, then the Blushing Bride Artisan Embellishment flower was placed in the center with Mini Glue Dots, then added to the front of the card under the stems.
  • The frame from the hostess set, Because You Care, was stamped with Blushing Bride, then the Happy Birthday greeting stamped inside with Sahara Sand.  It was cut with the Chalk Talk Framelit which fits perfectly around the frame.  That was popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Finally the butterfly from Nature’s Perfection was stamped with Sahara Sand on Blushing Bride cardstock, then punched with the Butterfly Punch and placed on the frame with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Pearls were added for the body.

Well, I hope this gave you a good idea for the Nature’s Perfection stamp set!  I love the flower in it, but wanted to feature one of the other stamp images in it!

Such a beautiful card, Connie – and I’m not usually a ‘pink person’! Thanks for the inspiration on using this set.
