Petal Parade and Sweet Sorbet Card

Today’s card is another “Sale-a-bration” card! I used the Petal Parade stamp set and the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series paper and Accessory pack. This accessory pack includes 1 sheet of printed adhesive-backed cork and 3 spools of twine (10 yards each). These embellishments coordinate very well with Petal Parade stamp set and Sweet Sorbet DSP. You can get any of these items FREE during the Sale-a-bration (with a $60 order). The sale ends at the end of March. Don’t miss out!

I used the new Scalloped Tag Topper punch to make this cute tag and used the twine in the Sweet Sorbet accessory pack to tie a little bow.

“You Make me Happy ” Tag Card

Today’s card was made with “Valentine’s Day” in mind, but I think it’s a card that you could also give at any moment during the year to someone very special in your life.

I used the Happy Watercolor stamp set ,which I have to admit, is probably my favorite in the new Occasion mini-catalogue! I also used the new Scalloped Tag Topper punch to create the tag on the card. (See this post where I also used it on another card.) After making the tag, I put some Watercolor Wonder Washi tape on it and than I used the Hearts a Flutter Collection Framelits to cut the small heart out.

For the background, I first stamped the image that look like Watercolor splatters from Happy Watercolor set in Crumb Cake. Then I stamped the little dots in Gold Metallic ink as well as the saying “You make me happy”. I embossed the card stock with the Decorative Dots embossing folder and sponged it with Crumb Cake around the edges.

Watercolor Wonder Notecards

Material for the card:

Stamp set: Happy Watercolor, Wetlands (for the greeting)

CS and paper: Watercolor Wonder Designer Note Cards, Very Vanilla and Melon Mambo card stock

Ink: Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Gumball Green, Daffodil Delight Stampin’marker, Black StazOn ink.

Tools: Blender pen, Large Oval punch, Modern Label punch, Dimensionals.


1. Take one printed Watercolor Wonder Designer Note Card and stamp the orchid flower (from Happy Watercolor stamp set) in StazOn black ink. Color the flowers centers with Daffodil Delight Marker. Then, with your blender pen color the rest of the flowers using the ink on the lid of your ink pad (Gumball Green and Melon Mambo).  Tip: when working with the Blender pen, the color will be darker at the beginning and will fade out as you color. So start to color in the center of the flower and move you way to the outer edges.

3. Use the “little dots” stamp (from Happy Watercolor stamp set) and randomly stamp a few times on the background with Pink Pirouette ink.

2. Stamp the Greeting with Melon Mambo ink on Very Vanilla card stock. Use the Large Oval punch to cut. Use the Modern Label punch to cut a label in Melon Mambo card stock. Adhere the Oval  on top of the Melon Mambo label. Use dimensionals to adhere to the card.

Happy Watercolor new stamp set and Washi Tape

My kids are back to school today, so I was happy to be able to go to my stamp room and play with some of my new products from the Occasion mini-catalogue!

I really love this new stamp set called “Happy Watercolor” and I’m sure you’ll see quite a few creations with this set this Spring! This set is part of the Watercolor Wonder Suite (see it p.22-23 in the new mini-catalogue)! Products in the “suite” are meant to coordinate well together.  The new Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape is also pretty awesome with his gold color! (I used all three designs on the card below!) I also used the new Gold Baker’s twine, sure to add a beautiful finishing touch to all your projects!

If you like this card, we’ll be making it at my next Monthly Card Class, Friday January 31, at 7:00 pm. Please email me if you want to register, as space is limited! (Julie_olivier@hotmail.com)
