Blooms and Wishes for CAS C&S

Happy Thursday which means another challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches. It’s the fifth Thursday in the month so it’s a double challenge – colours AND a sketch. I got to use a couple of new and so far unused sets, Blooms and Wishes and Penned & Painted and I can see a lot of use for these sets in the near future.

Stampin' Up! Blooms & Wishes and Penned & Painted and Endless Birthday Wishes

Here’s the banner which inspired my card.

Fun right? I’ll be interested to hear how the rest of the design team cut their curve. I used a plate and my piercing tool and then used paper snips. Once I’d cut my curved piece of whisper white, I stamped my images, the flower in bermuda bay from Blooms and Wishes and the ladybird and centre of the flower from Penned & Painted using melon mambo and daffodil delight. Next I took the Endless Birthday Wishes set and curved the photopolymer stamps for the greeting to match the curve of my card. After stamping that in the right place, I attached my homemade DSP with the tombow glue.

Don’t forget that today is the last day to take advantage of two Stampin’ Up! offers  – firstly if your order (you can club together with friends) is over $350 you get an extra $35 in Stampin’ Rewards on top of the 12% that you already get. So if you hit $350 right on the nose, you’d get $77 in free stuff! The other offer ending today is if you join as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. As usual you get $125 of product for just $99 with free shipping (a $12.50 value) but you also get to add two free stamp sets to your completely customisable starter kit. Depending upon which sets you choose, that’s just over $100 of more free stuff. And if you never buy another thing, that’s fine. Or if you do choose to buy, just $300 of sales (sales to yourself are included) keeps you enjoying a 20% discount. It sounds too good to be true, but it’s not!! Just go to the Become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator page over on the left to join up.

See you tomorrow,





  1. I too used a plate to get the curve and then hand cut it – keep meaning to buy a die as I really like this shape! Love the little flowers and ladybird you used to fill your bottom space, fab card.

  2. Clever workaround for not having a die to cut the curved line! I wouldn’t have thought to use the Bermuda Bay for flower petals but they look really bright and cheery. Nice job, Liz!

  3. Very creative to use a plate and I love your stamped BG, fun and beautifully done. I luckily have a die to die cut the curve, it is from a set of 3 from Mama Elephant. Hugs Bev x
