Stampin’ Up! Free as a Bird Thank You Card

Good Morning! Today’s card showcases the beautiful new Bird Ballad suite of products from the new 2019 – 2020 Annual Catalog. The art image is created with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Free as a Bird cling stamp set.

The layout for today’s card was inspired by the #TGIFC216 Sketch Challenge at TGIF Challenges. Check out all the entries for this challenge by clicking on the picture below.

I started out by embossing a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock in the Layered Leaves 3-D embossing folder and attaching it to a Thick Whisper White card base. I cut a strip of blue floral paper from the Bird Ballad designer series paper and used the Banner Triple punch to trim the bottom.

I stamped the sentiment and leaf cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Free as a Bird cling stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock and die cut it using one of the Nested Label dies. I then colored the leaves with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and the branch with the dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. I lightly sponged the background with Pool Party ink.

I then stamped the single bird from the Stampin’ Up! Free as a Bird cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock. I colored it with Crumb Cake and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut it using my paper snips. Since I cut it on the line, I used a black marker to color to color the edges of the bird. This gives the bird a more finished look by hiding the white paper edge.

I then made a bow with the Linen Thread and attached a key from the Bird Ballad Trinkets to the bottom so that it dangles – such a fun touch for a card! Since I cut off the legs when I cut out the bird, I drew legs on the label using a black journaling pen. I then popped the bird on the label with dimensionals and glued the bow on with a glue dot. I used more dimensionals to attack the label to the banner.

I attached a strip of the same DSP as the front banner to the bottom of a whisper white panel using multipurpose glue and attached it to a Pear Pizzazz mat using snail. I then attached this to the inside of the card, also with snail adhesive.

Everything in the Bird Ballad suit is so beautiful and every Bird Ballad card I see is stunning. Thank you for stopping by!

Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes Get Well Card

Hello and welcome! Today I have a simple card for someone under the weather made with the Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes stamp set. This is a set that was introduced last year and is now available only as a cling rubber stamp set. Most of the wood mount sets are no longer available from Stampin’ Up! They have perfected the cling stamp set labels so that they stick really well to acrylic stamp blocks. In the new 2019 – 2020 Annual Catalog they have replaced most of the wood mount and clear mount red rubber stamps with the new cling mount rubber stamps, and they really do stick much better, but have the same red rubber stamping area!

The design of my card is inspired by the Fab Friday 165 sketch challenge. It’s a simple layout that is pretty versatile!

Check out the other entries for this challenge by clicking on the picture above.

To create today’s card, I started by embossing a piece of Pool Party card stock with the Subtles embossing folder and matting it with Whisper White. This embossing gives texture and interest without distracting from your main image. After embossing, I adhered the matted panel to a Pool Party Card base.

I then made the main image background by sponging Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive inks in random patterns on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I then spritzed it with water and blotted it with a paper towel, giving it a mottled look. I was really pleased that the inks reacted with the water to give lighter splotches where the water droplets landed. I then needed to let the panel dry completely and I pressed it under books overnight to flatten the paper.

Then I made the art panel by running the embossing buddy over the sponged background and stamped the single dandelion and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set. After it cooled I cut out it with the stitched rectangle die. I cut a piece of the Whisper White Flax ribbon and adhered it to the embossed panel with snail and adhered the art panel with dimensionals. I finished it off with an old Pool Party enamel dot from my stash.

I finished the inside by stamping the dandelion seeds flying away in Pool Party on Whisper White cardstock and adhering it to the inside of the card. I also stamped this image on the corner of the envelope to match!

I remember as a child blowing the dandelions and making wishes. These days I pick them quickly before they turn to seed and spread all over my lawn – too funny! The Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes cling stamp set has nostalgic images of summer and great sentiments with beautiful fonts for sending wishes.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Stampin’ Up! Piece of Cake Wedding Card

Good Morning! June is a big wedding month and today I have a white and silver wedding card featuring the Stampin’ Up! Piece of Cake photopolymer stamp set.

I started by embossing a piece of shimmer white cardstock using the beautiful Country Floral embossing folder. Since the paper will sometimes shrink lengthwise after being embossed, I add an extra 1/8 inch to the length and then after embossing, I remeasured it and trim off the excess. This way I get the exact measurement I need. I then attached the embossed piece to a Silver Foil mat and then to a Thick Whisper White card base using snail.

I then stamped the floral cake, cake stand and the floral topper from the Stampin’ Up! Piece of Cake stamp set on Whisper White using Versamark ink after dusting the cardstock with the embossing buddy. The embossing buddy is necessary for most embossing to keep the powder on the stamped image and minimize the stray pieces of embossing powder on the cardstock where you don’t want it. There are usually a few pieces that I still need to pick off with a pick. Then I sprinkled silver embossing powder on the images and set them with the heat tool. I punched the cake and cake stand with the Stampin’ Up! Cake Builder punch and fussy cut the flower topper with paper snips. I punched two more pieces of the cake and cake stand and glued them to the back of the embossed pieces with multipurpose liquid glue. This way I had thicker pieces, kind of like chipboard and it gives more dimension to the label. It’s pretty easy to do with the punch and these shapes!

I then took the largest of the Stitched Nested labels and die cut a part of the label from Thick Whisper White cardstock. I dusted the end with the embossing buddy and stamped the Mr & Mrs sentiment with Versamark ink. I sprinkled the sentiment with silver embossing powder and heat set it. I then glued the cake, cake stand and topper to the label and popped it on the card with dimensionals. I finished it off with 3 small rhinestone jewels.

For the inside of the card, I stamped and embossed the wedding sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Piece of Cake Photopolymer Stamp Set on Whisper White cardstock. I added a strip of Whisper White embossed with the country floral embossing folder and matted it with Silver Foil before attaching it to the inside of the card.

Silver Foil really dresses up a card and makes wedding cards extra special and they go so nicely with silver embossing powder. The Country Floral Embossing folder also adds a lovely touch to wedding cards. They just don’t photograph well because of the shine and sparkle – oh well!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!

Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I am participating in another Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s Blog Hop is Birthday and I can’t wait to see everyone’s Stampin’ Up! Birthday projects.

I am sharing a feminine grunge/vintage birthday card using the Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions stamp set . I love this set and the colorful DSP that came out with it in last year’s Annual Catalog, so it was a challenge to come up with another color scheme and vintage look for this stamp set. So here’s my card.

My card’s layout was inspired by the Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge 411 where the optional theme of grunge/vintage made me look at this stamp set in a new light.

I decided to give it a try because there are so many beautiful vintage themes and inspiration in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. I decided that I needed to use the beautiful new Stitched Lace Die as the background and of course I needed to have Blushing Bride cardstock peeking through the lace. I also used some Sahara Sand ink and sponged the edge of the lace to add a little grungy age to the lace.

Continuing with the Blushing Bride color theme, I used the Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impression roses and leaves stamps to create a DSP with the look of vintage roses. The roses have three stamps that layer on top of each other and I took the thickest one and randomly stamped the flower on a strip of whisper white. I stamped off each time to get a lighter base. I took the second stamp and stamped over the first images, again stamping off each time. Finally I took the third stamp with the thinnest lines and stamped full strength on each flower. Then I did the same thing with the leaves, first using the thickest image and stamping off with Old Olive ink, followed by the thinner lined image. I finished off the panel by lightly sponging with Sahara Sand all over.

I cut a square frame using the two largest Stitched Shapes square framelits. Then I stamped the flower picture using the Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions posy flowers and stems. I stamped the stems in Old Olive after stamping off once and stamped the flowers using the new In Color Seaside Spray, again stamping off once. The seaside spray goes really well with the blushing bride to give the old fashioned shabby pink and blue look. I finally stamped the ‘Happy Birthday’ greeting from the Stampin’ Up! Piece of Cake stamp set in Sahara Sand ink, and again lightly sponged the image with Sahara Sand before gluing it to the frame with multipurpose liquid glue.

To assemble the card front, I glued the lacy background to Blushing Bride and attached it to a Crumb Cake card base with dimensionals. I added a bit of the newly retired very vanilla lace ribbon to the bottom of the stamped vintage rose panel and adhered it to the lacy background with snail. I trimmed a little piece of the stamped vintage rose panel to make a fishtail banner and added some more lace and the pink cord from the Hugs from Shelley Paper Pumpkin kit to make a little tassel to hang from the bottom of the picture frame. I attached this to the lacy background with dimensionals and trimmed the flowers with faux pearls.

On the inside of the card, I added another strip of the vintage rose panel and sponged the edges of a Whisper White panel with Sahara Sand. I attached this to a Blushing Bride mat and finally to the card base with snail adhesive.

I was pleased with how old fashioned this card looked, and I think it came out pretty too! I’m glad to have found a new look for this versatile stamp set!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy everyone’s wonderful projects on the blog hop!

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia Thinking of You Card

Good Morning! Years ago when I was first married, we lived in northwest Florida and we had a magnificent Magnolia Grandiflora tree in the back yard of our little house. Ever since, I have loved these flowers and was thrilled when I saw that Stampin’ Up! has a new bundle showcasing this beautiful force of nature. The Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set is part of the Magnolia Lane suite which features lots of coordinating products including DSP, an embossing folder, memories and more card pack, ribbon and cork embellishments. The Good Morning Magnolia bundle has the Cling Stamps and coordinating dies including dies to make 3-D flowers.

So on to today’s card…

I started by stamping the large magnolia flower on Whisper White cardstock using Early Espresso Ink. I used my Stamparatus to stamp it, because I don’t have the large stamping block and it worked wonderfully! I then die cut it using the coordinating die and colored it using the light Petal Pink, light and dark Old Olive and dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. I used the Pineapple Punch Stampin Write Marker to color the stamen.

I layered a piece of the Magnolia Lane DSP with the dainty flower buds on a Mossy Meadow mat and attached it to a Petal Pink card base with dimensionals. On a scrap of Mossy Meadow, I stamped the Thinking of You stamp in Versamark ink after dusting it with the embossing buddy. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set. I then cut it out with the Stitched Nested Labels die and trimmed the left side and attached it to the card with glue dots. I went to attach the flower to the card with dimensionals and determined that it was a little floppy, so I die cut another large flower in Whisper White cardstock and glued them together with multipurpose liquid glue before attaching them with dimensionals. The double layer of Whisper White made it much stiffer and better for use with dimensionals.

I finished off the card by tying piece of the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon and gluing it to the stem of the flower.

The inside of the card is decorated with a strip of the same DSP as the card front background and a Mossy Meadow mat. I also took the magnolia bud stamp and stamped it in early espresso after stamping it off 4 times. Since I had to stamp it off so much to get it light enough, I decided to use the 4th stamp to accent the envelop. So It was stamp it off 3 times on scrap paper, stamp the envelope and stamp the inside of the card! That Early Espresso goes a long way!

The Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set has so many wonderful images and greetings and and the suite has so many coordinating products, so I’ll be bringing this back for more designs. And I can’t wait to make a 3-D flower!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Stampin’ Up! Bloom by Bloom You are Amazing Card

Good Morning! Today’s card uses some of my favorite items from the retiring Stampin’ Up 2018 – 2019 Annual Catalog and the 2019 Occasions Catalog to say good bye. Today is the last day to order from these catalogs. The Stampin’ Up! Bloom by Bloom stamp set first caught my eye because of the big, bold, beautiful flowers. The ‘amazing’ word die from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate You thinlits has such a stylish font that makes any card special.

I started by stamping the little flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Bloom by Bloom photopolymer stamp set on a Whisper White square in Calypso Coral, Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch. I stamped the sentiment which came from an old Sale-A-Bration set Amazing You in Night of Navy. I die cut the flowers using a circle from the stitched shapes set along with a scalloped circle from calypso coral. I attached these using snail adhesive.

I die cut the fancy ‘amazing’ word die from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate You thinlits from a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and glued it to the bottom of the flower panel using the fine tipped glue pen.

Then I attached a strip of the Happiness Blooms floral DSP to the Call Me Clover mat and then the Happiness Blooms striped DSP next to it. I have a hard time lining things up straight, so I did the wider DSP first, because it’s easier to make fine adjustments with the thinner one if needed. I next attached the panel to a Calypso Coral Card base and finally the floral circle with the die cut word to the DSP panel. All of these were done using snail adhesive, so the card is pretty flat. To finish off the front, I added 3 Night of Navy enamel dots from the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the circle with the flowers.

On the inside of the card, I added a strip of the Happiness Blooms floral DSP to the left side of a Whisper White panel and matted it in Call Me Clover before attaching it to the inside card base.

It’s sad to say good-bye to the Stampin’ Up! Bloom by Bloom stamp set as the catalogs close out. But there are so many pretty new things in the new 2019 – 2020 Annual Catalog which starts tomorrow. I haven’t posted many sneak peeks, but there are lots of them on the internet and I can’t wait to get started!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Stampin’ Up! Everything is Rosy Thank You Card

Good Morning! Today I have a sweet floral thank you card made with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Everything is Rosy Product Medley.

The layout for this pretty card is inspired by The Paper Players PP443.

I used the pretty light pink DSP with the ditty flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Everything Is Rosy Product Medley as the background and contrasted it with the Night of Navy striped DSP as a focal contrast. I matted it all with Melon Mambo cardstock and began making the flowers. I stamped the large flower in Melon Mambo and cut it out with the matching die cut. I turned it upside down on a mouse pad and rolled a ball stylus on the petals in a circular motion to give the flower dimension. I then turned it right side up and pushed in the middle to flatten it. I die cut a center from a scrap of Night of Navy using the die cut for the stamen and used one of the rose gold mirror accents for the flower center. I accented the large flower with the large double leaf stamp using Mossy Meadow ink and cut out with the matching die cut.

I stamped two of the smaller flowers using Melon Mambo ink after stamping off twice resulting in a pretty light pink flower. I stamped the center dots in Night of Navy full strength and the stamens in Night of Navy after stamping off once. I cut them out using the matching die cut and used the same technique of rolling the ball stylus on the back of the petals to give the flower dimension. I accented the flowers with the smaller stamped and die cut leaves in Mossy Meadow.

After creating the flowers, I took the small label from the Stampin’ Up! Everything is Rosy Product Medley and stamped the Thank You sentiment in Night of Navy. This set has such pretty fonts! I adhered the label to the card front using glue dots and arranged the flowers and leaves on the card front and attached them with glue dots. I die cut one of the leafy branches from a scrap of rose gold foil to add some shine to the large flower. I tied a bow using the Melon Mambo ruched ribbon and attached it with a glue dot. When the front panel was finished, I attached it to the card front using dimensionals.

I used the striped Night of Navy DSP on the left side to copy the card front and accented it with another die cut small flower and set of leaves. I matted the panel on Melon Mambo and attached it to the inside using snail adhesive.

The Stampin’ Up! Everything Is Rosy Product Medley has so many pretty elements that are so versatile. Today is the last day it will be available.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend!
