Blossom Die Cuts Dynamic Duos Continued

Today at 2pm I’ll be announcing the Tea Shoppe Stamp Set Million visitors blog candy winner, but first three more cards to share!

Are you beginning to see how very versatile the Blossom Die Cuts can be?  Place your Stampin’ Up! order online, and have your supplies delivered right to your door… for your convenience a shopping list will list all the supplies you’ll need at the end of today’s post!

Today’s I’ll be sharing one card with three subtle design changes!1._blossom_builders_die_Cut_With_Just_Add_Cake_DSP

These were two samples two ways which I had prepared for the Blossom Die Cut Simply Sent Class.  The blossoms are different and we also changed the orientation of the die cut paper ribbons as well.horizontal paper ribbon orientated thank you card

Sentiments from Curly Cute were added to a Very Vanilla Card Stock Base, and Old Olive Card Stock along with Just Add Cake layers were added to the base.staggered blossom builders die cut ribbons

Ribbons were staggered across the width of the Just Add Cake Designer Series Paper.extra BLOSSOM punch layer added to die cut blossom builders

A Very Vanilla Blossom Punch was added beneath layered blossom die cuts, a medium basic jewel rhinestone attached to the center of a Daffodil Delight Die Cut Circle and then the blossom was attached to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals or “pop dots”.P1110949

We changed the orientation of the paper ribbons on the second card. alternate card orientation jsut add cake dsp and blossom builders

The paper ribbons extended into the stamping space so we also used a shorter sentiment from the Curly Cute stamp set.two additional punch layers added to blossom builders card two

Two Very Vanilla Punched shapes were added to the blossom die cuts this time… one punched with the blossom punch, and a second from the blossom bouquet triple layer punch.  Like the first bloom, a rhinestone jewel was added to the die cut flower center.LOL... one of the cards I made in class without looking at the sample!

I was having so much fun participating in the class… that I made even more changes when I stamped my own cards… spacing out the paper ribbon banners, and adding another sentiment from the Curly Cute stamp set. 

LOL, I wasn’t looking at the pre-made samples when I stamped my cards because I had designed them!  I like this card even better… how about you?

Later today (at 2pm) I’ll announce the Tea Shoppe Blog Candy Winner… please stop back by to see if YOU are a winner!

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing a brand new card for last Wednesday’s Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge Design Team… I’m playing along this week too.. have you?

As always, I look forward to reading your comments!

Hugs,

Sharon

Such variety. You've done a FANTASTIC job showing just how versatile the Blossom die cuts can be. Sometimes we see things only one way, and it's wonderful to realize all the possibilities available (which helps when it comes to "justifying" a purchase - ha/ha). The way you staggered the ribbon on your cards adds visual interest.

Very cute Sharon. I love how a couple of simple elements like orientation and the position of an element can chnage a card so much. Love both of those cards.

All great cards and look very different. However, my favorite is the Happy Birthday one, Sharon!
