Hi Everyone! Let me start out by saying BRRRRRRRR! Blizzard warnings today in Northern Indiana and I just looked outside and it's crazy blowing! We all took home work with us since it was 100% coming this way. The nice UPS man dropped off some SU goodies for me yesterday so I've been itching to try out a few new things. Above is the new Framed Tulips Embossing Folder121809….Love it! It's on p.28 in the Occations Mini that's kinda tucked away! I really like the use as a border framing what's inside the card. I used Bashful Blue card stock for the card base.

I used the Build a Blossom stamp set, 121923 wood mount & 121994 clear mount, with corresponding Blossomm Petals Punch. 121808. I used Pretty in Pink ink from my Subtles Stampin' Spots 119712 on Pink Pirouette card stock 111351 for the petals and flower center. I used a little Crystal Effects 101055 on the flower center too. For 5 of the bottom petals, I curled the petals by using my Piercing tool 116631 barrel…any thin barrel pencil or pen would work too. Curl in the same manner you might a curling ribbon. This gives a nice 3-D effect.

The Happy Birthday is from the Create a Cupcake Stamp set. p. 22 Occations Mini 121915 wood mount and 121982 clear.

The petals on this flower are the leaves I used on my earlier posting. This set can be used so many ways to make a variety of sizes of flowers. Even though you may think leaf image, try it as a petal! It really adds to the options you have with this set!

Stay safe and warm over the next few days everyone!

Happy Crafting! ~Dee
