Leaves and Butterflies Card using Irresistible Blooms Bundle


  • Another Card idea using Irresistible Blooms Bundle
  • All The Little Things April Paper Pumpkin Kit with FREE insert
  • New Catalog Pricing Changes and Ready for Fresh New Colors
I'm still finding more ways to create using the Irresistible Blooms Stamp Set and Hello, Irresistible Designer Series Paper from the Online Exclusive section of the Stampin' Up! store.  I'm using a leaf print from the Hello, Irresistible 6 X 6" Designer Series Paper, along with Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder and Die cuts from Brilliant Wings Dies, Scalloped Contours Dies, Meadows Dies, and Framed Florets Dies in addition to the Irresistible Bloom Dies.  I used a color theme of Soft Sea Foam and Basic White along with the Hello, Irresistible Designer Series Paper.  I cut the Designer Series Paper into strips and layered them onto the Scalloped Contours Die Cut.  I used a sentiment label die from the Meadows Dies, and added floral and leaves die cuts in Basic White.  I used the Genial Gems as accents, and you'll want to pick these up while they last on the Clearance Rack, Item #155500 | $3.20  $8.00  USD!
Floral Greeting card using Stampin' Up! Irresistible Blooms Stamp Set

The basecard for today's card is Soft Sea Foam Cardstock.  Then I dry embossed another layer of Soft Sea Foam Cardstock using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder.  Next, I die cut a piece of Basic White Cardstock using the Scalloped Contours Dies.  I selected a leaf print from the Hello, Irresistible 6" X 5" Designer Series Paper and cut three 1-1/4" strips to layer on the Scalloped Contours Die cut.  

Birthday Card with florals and butterflies using Hello, Irresistible Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

I due cut several Basic White stems and leaves and a Butterfly using a die for the floral stems from Framed Florets, the leaves from Irresistible Bloom Dies and the Butterfly is from the Brilliant Wings Dies.  I layered them behind the sentiment label and I attached the butterfly towards the top of the Designer Series Paper layer.  

Floral Card idea using Stampin' Up! Hello, Irresistible Suite Collection

To finish my card, I die cut a label from the Meadow Dies, and stamped sentiments from the Irresistible Blooms Stamp Set in Mint Macaron.  I mounted it on Dimensionals before adding it to my card.  I added a few Genial Gems as accents on the sentiment label and near the butterfly.  You'll want to pick up these gems at a great price from the Clearance rack while they last.
