More Detailed Floral Thinlets Ideas . . .

Hi!  Back today with more cards made with the Detailed Floral Thinlets (also available in a bundle and save 10% with the Floral Phrases Stamp Set).  The first one might look a little familiar:

If so, that's because it is made using the same ingredients as my original make and take for Saturday's Jewelry and Stamping party, which you can see here.  The greeting on this card is from Blooms and Wishes, and the little flowers are from Cottage Greetings.

Here's another version, which also uses a Sweet Sugarplum die cut, the Blooms and Bliss Designer Paper, and greeting from Cottage Greetings:

The little flowers are "leftovers" from the pieces punched out during die cutting.  The card base is Blushing Bride, and the stamped border on Whisper White is from the Floral Phrases set.

While I was designing the make and takes, I did a lot of experimenting with the Detailed Floral Thinlets.  For this one, I die cut Sweet Sugarplum with both of the detailed dies, and layered that piece onto Gold Foil, then added some Gold Satin Ribbon, a piece of Whisper White die cut with the new Layering Circles, some Gold Foil pieces die cut with the Flourish Thinlets.  The flowers on the Whisper White piece are stamped in Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry, and are from the Blooms and Wishes stamp set:

The next card is a gate fold, inspired by the card at the bottom of page 76 in the Catalog:

I used the Floral Phrases stamp set on the inside:

And this version actually resulted from an oops!  When I was trying to make the card above, I goofed my measurements and made an equal gate fold card.  Rather than toss it, I decided to go ahead and die cut the gate pieces -- did both with the larger of the two detailed dies, then added layers of Sweet Sugarplum behind:

The center piece is die cut using the Lots of Labels Framelits dies with Shimmery White and Rich Razzleberry Card Stock.  The flowers and greeting stamps are from the Blooms and Wishes stamp set.

Here's the inside, which is stamped with images from Blooms and Wishes and Floral Phrases in Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach, and Old Olive:

Don't you love how versatile these dies are?!!

Thanks so much for visiting!
