Field of Flowers with FREE PDF













This quick and easy layout was shared with with my team by Donna Griffith last week. It has a very special effect with the way the ribbon is attached and slipped between cut.  I used the new 2020-2022 In-Colors Misty Moonlight for the sentiment and Bumblebee for the flowers.  This Field of Flowers stamp set is a great all around set and the font is so cool.  Granny Apple Green for the flower stems and then a burst of denim using the 3/8″ Denim Ribbon.

Here is a the PDF for this project, I just changed up the colors for this card….

Please comment if you give this a try.  I’d love to see your creations and interpretation of this layout.

Ornate Garden Spanner Fun Fold


I am sharing a “Quarantine Swap” card I made today.  I was totally inspired by Susan Canfield’s idea.  I recreated her fun fold layout using the Ornate Garden Suite items.  I love how this turned out and feel like it is a very Spring-like card.  Here is a look at the final product.

This card is so fun as it has 3 layers.  The sides lift “spanned” by a piece of Window Sheet.  The second layer is the embossed piece with the Hello sentiment.  The 3rd layer is the sentiment from the bundled stamp set and dies , By the Dock.

  • Cut the front flap on each side at 1.25″ from the bottom edge to the scored fold line.
  • Cut 2 pieces of  Daisy DSP to 1″x 4″
  • Cut 2 pieces of Green Flowered DSP to 1″x 4″
  • So Saffron cut to 3″x 4″ and embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder

  • Stamp the insert with the sentiment from  By the Dock stamp set
  • Early Espresso stamp pad.
  • Cut a piece of Window Sheet to 3 1″x 4″ and adhere to the first layer using Mini Glue Dots.

Coming up Daisies!


I have officially taken a break from sewing face masks and am back creating in my happy place.  Today I would like to share with you a card named  “Coming Up Daisies”.  This was a really fun project in that I used the Fluid 100 watercolor paper from Stampin’Up! along with our beautiful inks and aqua painter to make my colored paper for the flowers.  Then, using some of our dies and punches to form them.  Here is what the finished card looks like.


  • 8.5″ x 5.5″  Whisper White cardbase scored at 4.25″
  • 3.75″x 5.25″ Shimmery White cardstock embossed with Subtles folder and water colored with Balmy Blue ink and aqua painter.
  • Using the aqua painter and the Fluid 100 watercolor paper with the remaining ink colors and let dry before punching and die cutting.
  • Cut a piece of Balmy Clue cardstock to matte the Shimmery White embossed image, then wrap and tie the crinkle ribbon in a bow or knot.
  • Stamp with favorite sentiment and adhere the flowers and leaves using mini glue dots.
  • Pop up using dimensionals onto the cardbase.
