Hand-penned peek - duckworth
Swap card created by Gwen Duckworth.


Hand-Penned Petals Feel Better Card
If you love to color, the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set is perfect for you! The coordinating Hand-Penned paper has lots of the new In Colors in it, so be sure to order the Stampin' Blends Markers for the easiest coloring. I love the coloring that Gwen Duckworth did on her swap card.
 
Background Basics—Gwen started with a 7-1/2" x 5-1/2" Thick Basic White card base, scored at the 4-1/4" mark. She decorated the inside with a 1" x 5-1/4" piece of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper. The front has a 3" x 5-1/4" piece of Pale Papaya cardstock, embossed with the Meadow Moments embossing folder.
 
Hand-penned peek - duckworth 3
 
Sentiment Label—Gwen die-cut a circle with the retired Stitched Shapes dies (you could use Layering Circles), then stamped a Hand-Penned Petals sentiment onto it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. 
 
Beautiful Blooms—She stamped the Hand-Penned Petals floral image in Memento Black onto Basic White, then die-cut it with the coordinating Penned Flowers Dies. She colored the image with Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends Markers and popped it up with Dimensionals. To finish, she tied a simple knot it Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon and attached it with a Glue Dot. 
 
Hand-penned peek - risi
Swap card created by Sandra Risi.
 
Hand-Penned Petals Thanks Card
Sandra Risi created this pretty Thanks card featuring many items from the Hand-Penned Suite. I love the Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent combined with Gold accents!
 
Background Basics—Sandra started by adhering a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Basic White onto the front of a Fresh Freesia card base. Next, she embossed a 3" x 4-1/4" piece of Soft Succulent with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. Then, she stamped a Hand-Penned Petals greeting in Memento Black onto a 3" x 2" piece of Hand-Penned DSP and adhered it along the bottom before mounting the layers onto the card front. She also added a 3-3/4" strip of Gold Shimmer Ribbon across the top of the DSP for a lovely foundation accent. 
 
Hand-penned peek - risi 3
Sweet Sentiment—Sandra stamped a different floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals set in Memento Black onto Basic White. She colored her image in with Fresh Freesia, Soft Succulent and Pale Papaya Stampin' Blends Markers, then die-cut and popped up the image with Dimensionals.
 
Finishing Touches—She added a little Wink of Stella shimmer to the flower centers, then add a couple of Genial Gems for additional sparkle.

Simply elegant - kempton 1
Swap card created by Selene Kempton.


Simply Elegant Simply Amazing Card
Selene Kempton created this lovely card featuring one of my favorite patterns from the Simply Elegant DSP. The sheets feature gold, silver and copper accents...gorgeous!
 
Background Basics—Selene embossed a 3-3/4" x 5" Basic White layer with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, then matted it onto a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Basic Black. It's adhered to a Smoky Slate card base. Next, she adhered a 2-3/4" x 4" piece of Simply Elegant DSP to a 2-7/8" x 4-1/8" piece of Basic Black, then mounted that onto the card front.
 
Simply elegant - kempton 2
 
Sentiment Label—Selene stamped the Elegantly Said greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Basic Black cardstock, then punched it with the coordinating Elegant Tag Punch. You can purchase both the stamp set and punch together as a bundle discounted at 10%! 
 
Finishing Touches—She added a couple loops of gold Simply Elegant Trim onto the card, then popped the label up with Dimensionals over the top. Selene finished by adding a few gold Gilded Gems at the bottom of the label. Fabulous!
 
Simply elegant - crider 1
Swap card created by Betsy Crider.
 
Simply Elegant For You Card
Betsy Crider's swap card used the Simply Elegant elements for a pretty, neutral-colored card.
 
Background Basics—Betsy started by stamping the larger Elegantly Said decorative border image in Crumb Cake onto a Crumb Cake card base, placing one image in two corners. She stamped the image again onto a 2-3/4" x 4" piece of Crumb Cake. That layer is matted onto a 2-7/8" x 4-1/8" piece of Early Espresso cardstock. 
 
Simply elegant - crider 2
Sweet Sentiment—Betsy stamped an Elegantly Said floral image in Pale Papaya ink onto Basic White, then added an Elegantly Said sentiment in Early Espresso ink. She punched it out with the Elegant Tag Punch and popped it up onto the top layers. 
 
Finishing Touches—She wrapped the gold Elegantly Said Trim around the top layers twice and tied a knot, then popped up the layers with Dimensionals. Betsy finished by adding some gold Metallic Pearls around the label. Delightful!

Flowers of friendship - alvarez 1Swap card created by Marisa Alvarez.

Flowers of Friendship Extra Happiness Card
Marisa Alvarez created this pretty Flowers of Friendship card featuring all of the beautiful In Colors! Beautiful!
 
Background Basics—Marisa began with a traditional 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Soft Succulent card base, scored at 4-1/4". She embossed the card front with the pretty Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder, then adhered a 2" x 5" piece of Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper to the front.
 
Flowers of friendship - alvarez 2
 
Sentiment Layer—Marisa stamped a sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Soft Succulent ink onto a Basic White Scalloped Contours die-cut. She also stamped the speckled image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set across the bottom of the rectangle. She tied some linen thread from the Baker's Twine Essential Pack around the layer, then popped it up with Dimensionals.
 
Colorful Blooms—The Flowers of Friendship flowers and leaves were stamped in In Color inks onto coordinating cardstock: large flower in Polished Pink, smaller flower in Pale Papaya and Fresh Freesia, leaves in Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. All of the elements were punched with the Flowers & Leaves Punch, then adhered with either SEAL or Dimensionals onto the rectangle. Marisa finished with a few Champagne Rhinestones floating around the card.

Flowers of Friendship Big Thanks Card
Stella MacKay created this pretty Flowers of Friendship card, combining it with some pretty Hand-Penned DSP.
 
Background Basics—Stella's card begins with a 4-1/4" x 2" piece of Hand-Penned DSP adhered along the bottom of a Soft Succulent card base. Then, she adhered a coordinating 4-1/4" x 1/2" strip of Hand-Penned DSP along the top edge of the first DSP.
Friendship Flowers—Like one of the cards I created for my In Color Club, Stella's uses a simple masking technique to stamp the stems. She covered the flowers on the large floral stamp, so she could ink up only the stems with Soft Succulent ink, then took off the mask and stamped it onto the Basic White Scalloped Contours layer. She repeated the process for another stem right beside it. Next, she stamped 2 large and 4 small Flowers of Friendship flowers in Pale Papaya ink onto a Pale Papaya pattern from the Hand-Penned DSP. They are punched out then adhered to the stems with either SEAL adhesive or Dimensionals. 
 
Sweet Sentiment—She stamped a Flowers of Friendship sentiment in Soft Succulent ink onto a 2" x 1" piece of Soft Succulent cardstock. After adhering a couple of 3" pieces of Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon on the back of the sentiment, she popped it up with Dimensionals. She finished with Genial Gems on all of the flower centers. So lovely!

Fresh freesia 1
Flowers of Friendship With 4-Petal Flowers
My In Color Club participants will receive supplies to make this pretty card during their Fresh Freesia month. I love this beautiful purple shade!
 
Background Basics—This card begins with a 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Basic White cardstock, scored and folded at the 4-1/4" mark. I used the pretty scalloped border die from the Penned Flowers Dies to cut about 3/4" off the edge, then adhered a 1" x 5-1/2" strip of Fresh Freesia In Color Designer Series Paper on the inside. Next, I embossed a 3-1/4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and mounted that onto the card front.
 
Fresh freesia 2
 
Sentiment Layers—I stamped the Flowers of Friendship greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a Basic White Scalloped Contours die-cut. It's layered onto a 2-5/8" x 3-7/8" piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock and adhered to the card front with SEAL Adhesive.
 
 
Fresh freesia 3

Pretty Blooms
I stamped the larger 4-petal flower image from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set in Memento Black ink onto Basic White cardstock three times. I colored the images with the light Fresh Freesia Stampin' Blends Markers, adding some shading with the dark marker, then punched them out with the Flowers & Leaves Punch. They are attached with Glue Dots and topped with Rhinestone Jewels. How lovely!
 
Flowers of friendship ombre gift bag - trio
 
Flowers of Friendship Ombré Gift Bags
Each month, I create a little treat holder or 3D gift for my Too Cool Team members who participate in our Stamp & Share event. This month, our team received supplies to create my Flowers of Friendship In Colors LIVE Class projects as their make & takes, so I wanted to make a treat that coordinated with those. I knew I wanted to use the new In Color Ombré Gift Bags, but I wasn't sure how to close them. Typically, I use ribbon or some kind of clip for a closure, but I wanted something a little different this time. I decided to CASE one of my class cards and create a larger decorative element that could "hang" from the top folded flap with the weight of it keeping it closed. It turned out to be the perfect solution! I'll definitely be using this technique for my future gift bags!
 
Flowers of friendship ombre gift bag - evergreen 1
Gift Bag Basics—The In Color Ombré Gift Bags include 4 bags each in each of the 5 In Colors. I love the trendy ombré gradation of color. I started with an Evening Evergreen gift bag, folding down the top between 1-1/4" and 1-1/2". I just eye-balled it.
 
Flowers of friendship ombre gift bag - evergreen 2

Friendship Flowers—I CASEd the same focal point that I had created for my Soft Succulent LIVE Class Card...you can see it on this blog post. I started by stamping the Flowers of Friendship floral image in Memento Black onto a 2-1/2" x 3-3/4" piece of Basic White cardstock. Rather than paper piecing, like I did on the original card, I simply colored in the image with light Polished Pink and light Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends Markers. I layered it onto a 2-5/8" x 3-7/8" piece of Soft Succulent cardstock, then tied some Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon around the layers. They are popped up with Dimensionals onto an Evening Evergreen Scalloped Contours die-cut. I finished by adding a few Rhinestone Jewels floating around the flowers.
 
Flowers of friendship ombre gift bag - evergreen 3
Weighted Closure—I mounted the focal point layers onto the top fold of the Ombré Gift Bag with Dimensionals along the top. This flip-over, weighted element allows you to easily access the contents of the bag!  I filled the bag with an individually wrapped Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pie for something a little different. It's a nice sized bag, so it will hold all kinds of treats: fun-sized candy bars, gift cards, small gifts and cash! 
 
Flowers of friendship ombre gift bag - polished
Two Cool—I also created a Polished Pink version with the same focal point. 
 
Flowers of friendship ombre gift bag - succulent
Three Cool—The Soft Succulent gift bag was another color that coordinated perfectly with the focal point. Which color is your favorite?

Flowers & Leaves Punch Creates Colorful Blooms!
 

Pale papaya 1

Flowers of Friendship With 4-Petal Flowers
This is my featured card for the Pale Papaya month for my In Color Club participants. I love that it uses most of the new In Colors...you can see how beautifully they go together! And the Flowers & Leaves Punch makes it so easy to create a whole bouquet of flowers!
 
Background Basics—I started with a Pale Papaya card base and I stamped the Flowers of Friendship tiny flower border repeatedly along the left side of the card front with coordinating Pale Papaya ink. Doesn't it make such a sweet background pattern? I added a Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon tied around the card front into a double-knot.

Masked & Punched Blooms—I used the large Flowers of Friendship floral image for the stem and leaves, but I wanted to add 4-petal flowers instead of the blooms that were on the image. I used some small sticky notes to cover up the flowers on the rubber stamp, then inked just the stem and leaves with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I removed the masks, then stamped the remaining image onto a 2-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Basic White cardstock. It's layered onto a 2-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Polished Pink, then mounted onto the card front. 
 
Next, I punched the two smaller Flowers of Friendship blooms in Memento Black onto Polished Pink and Fresh Freesia cardstock and punched them out. The larger flower was stamped in Memento Black onto Pale Papaya and punched out. And finally, I stamped the small and large leaves in Memento Black onto Soft Succulent cardstock and punched those out as well. They were all added to the flower stem with either Glue Dots or Dimensionals. This is a simple Paper Piecing technique and I love how it adds quick color to the card!  
 
I finished with some Rhinestone Jewels in the center of each flower.

Sweet Sentiment
I stamped the Flowers of Friendship sentiment in Memento Black onto a 2-3/4" x 7/8" piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock, then popped it up with Dimensionals. So sweet!

Flowers of Friendship With Full Flowers
For my Evening Evergreen card, I tried a fun fold card with full flowers, again punched with the Flowers & Leaves Punch. It makes a fantastic thank you card!
 
Background Basics—I started with a quarter-sheet of Evening Evergreen, measuring 5-1/2" x 4-1/4". I decorated the base with a 2" x 4" piece of Evening Evergreen In Color DSP, then added a Basic White Scalloped Contours die-cut as a pretty foundation for the card. The open part of the card is made with a 5-3/4" x 4-1/8" piece of Soft Succulent cardstock, scored at the 2-7/8" mark. It's adhered onto the scallop rectangle with SEAL or SEAL+.
 
I wrapped some Evening Evergreen Open Weave Ribbon around the small card front, attaching the ends to the card front with SEAL.

Full Flowers—The flowers punched from the Flowers & Leaves Punch can be layered to create fuller blooms. I started by stamping a Flowers of Friendship greeting in Memento Black onto a Basic White Tasteful Labels die-cut. Then, I stamped and punched two Pale Papaya large flowers and two Polished Pink small flowers, both in Memento Black ink. I layered and attached them with Glue Dots. I stamped the leaves in Evening Evergreen ink onto Evening Evergreen cardstock, punched them out and tucked them under the blooms with Glue Dots.
 
The label is mounted onto the card front with Dimensionals. I finished with Rhinestone Jewels for each bloom.

Inside The Card—Don't forget to decorate the inside of the card. I stamped the two flowers and leaves in Memento Black onto the 3-3/4" x 2-1/2" piece of Basic White. They are colored with Stampin' Blends Markers in Pale Papaya, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent colors.
