Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Thanks

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off.  I’ll be at work all day today.  It’s suppose to be stormy here, so it might not be as busy as it has been.

Today’s card was inspired by one of my 8 gardens in my yard.  I have an Iris garden and it is now in full bloom.  When I took these pictured there were still a lot of buds.  I look forward every spring for these to bloom.

Here is my card for today.

My sketch is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #438.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Pear Pizzazz card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered a panel of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the left side of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Marker, I colored a piece of the Open Weave Vanilla 1/2″ Ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  I wrapped the piece around the DSP and adhered it to the back of the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the card front to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the iris image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stems.  I cut the image out using the 4th largest Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the top of the panel and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the iris image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stem image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the iris image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stem image.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping my by blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

  1. Your beautiful card is so representative of your garden. I hope you’ll be posting pics of your remaining gardens. I miss my northern irises but I just Googled for SWFL and found there are two kinds that grow well here. However, I’ve never seen them in Lowe’s or Home Depot. I’ll see if my son can find them in the nurseries here. I have not ordered this stamp set but now you’ve really got me thinking about it!


  2. Beautiful–the card and the flower garden. My aunt used to have a row if irises the length of their yard that color and I loved them so. Everyone coming by your house will love yours too. TFS


  3. What a beautiful card! Those flowers are so pretty! They look just like the ones in your gardens! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
