Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley Cards

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a pair of sweet cards designed for our Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting last month using the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley is the latest in the series and it includes stamps, dies, designer series paper, embellishments and die cut and laser cut accent sheets. Stampin’ Up! provides the list of coordinating colors so you can use the cardstock and ink that is already in your stash to express your creativity with all the coordinating items.

Adhere the Whisper White panel to the Old Olive panel and pop it on a Terracotta Tile card base with dimensionals. Color the leaves in the Terracotta Tile DSP with Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend and the flower centers with Dark Daffodil Delight. Adhere it to the Old Olive mat and then to the card front with liquid glue. Stamp the flower cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley stamp set twice with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and cut them out with the coordinating die. Color the leaves with Light Old Olive and the flower centers with Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends.

Stamp the sentiment on one of the fancy laser cut labels in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Cut out 3 sets of leaf clusters from Old Olive card stock. Arrange the die cut flowers and leaves and adhere them with liquid glue. Adhere the label with dimensionals and finish the front with clear rhinestone gems.

Stamp the berry cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley in Highland Heather ink on the top of a Highland Heather card base. Adhere the tile patterned DSP from Botanical Prints DSP to the Old Olive mat and then to the Highland Heather card base with liquid glue. Stamp the sentiment on a Whisper White panel and cut it out with the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

Stamp the berries on a Whisper White panel and color them with Highland Heather, Light So Saffron and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. Cut them out with the coordinating die and pop them on the oval with dimensionals. Pop the oval on the card base with dimensionals and accent with three rhinestone gems.

For the inside of the Terracotta Tile card, stamp the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley in two corners of a Whisper White panel in Terracotta Tile ink and adhere it to the inside of the card. Stamp the floral image on the corner of a Whisper White Medium envelope to match.

For the inside of the Highland Heather card, stamp the berries from the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley on the lower corner of a Whisper White panel. Adhere it to an Old Olive mat and then to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

The lifelike images of the flowers and fruits in the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley are reminiscent of antique botanical prints and make elegant and pretty cards with an updated and modern feel.

Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug Hello Card

Good Morning! Today is the last day of Sale-A-Bration, so I have a card made with the cute Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug cling stamp set. It is also the last day for the Coordination Products Release which includes the Ladybug Dies that I also used. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of So Saffron card stock with the Subtle embossing folder and adhered it to a So Saffron card base with liquid glue. I cut a Balmy Blue panel with the large scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I cut one end of a strip of Old Olive with the grass die from the Special Day Dies and cut the other sides with the same Stitched So Sweetly scalloped rectangle die. I adhered the grass to the bottom of the Balmy Blue die cut with liquid glue. I adhered the panel to the card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored it with Mango Melody, Old Olive and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Ladybug Dies. I stamped the Hey, Lady sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a strip of Whisper White and cut it out with the smallest Stitched So Sweetly scalloped rectangle die. I adhered the flower with dimensionals and adhered the label with a dimensional and liquid glue where the label overlapped the larger die cut.

I stamped all four ladybugs from the Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White. I colored them with Light Real Red, Light Petal Pink and both Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I colored the little flower with the light Mango Melody Blend. I adhered the ladybug holding the flower with liquid glue and the other two ladybugs with dimensionals.

I saved the last ladybug for the inside of the card. I also cut a flower using the dies from the Ladybug Dies using Mango Melody, Old Olive and Basic Black card stock and adhered it to the bottom of a Whisper White panel with liquid glue. I added the last ladybug next to the flower and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug stamp set is a Sale-A-Bration special that is FREE for Hosts with workshops totaling $300 or more (or an order of $300 or more), but today is the last day for the offer.

Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a sweet Easter Card that I made yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. The Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter cling stamp set has three cute baby animals that can be used for either baby cards or Easter cards. I made an Easter card with the cute little chick.

Here’s the Facebook Live video showing how to make the card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it here if you prefer.

I stamped the little chick from the Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter in Basic Gray ink on a small Whisper White panel and colored it with Daffodil Delight and Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out with the largest stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to a Pear Pizzazz scalloped circle cut with the Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the Happy Easter Greeting in Pear Pizzazz ink on a strip of Whisper White and cut it out with the long stitched rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

I embossed a Whisper White panel with the Ornate Flowers 3D embossing folder. This pretty embossing folder will be available on April 1 as part of the Ornate Garden Suite Early Release. I adhered the embossed panel to a Pear Pizzazz card base with liquid glue. I added a strip of Pear Pizzazz gingham from the Subtles 6×6 Designer Series Paper and adhered the label on top with liquid glue. I adhered the chick from the Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter stamp set with dimensionals and finished the front with a Daffodil Delight bow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower cluster and little bee in Basic Gray ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored them with Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather and Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Pear Pizzazz gingham and adhered it to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

Next up for Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter stamp set is a set of baby cards, also with gingham – I just need to figure out the sketch. On the sample (bottom card), I stamped the chick with Smoky Slate ink and I used Basic Gray (top card) in the video. I didn’t want to use black ink because I wanted to keep the softness of the baby chick. I think I prefer the Basic Gray, what do you think? Have a great week and stay healthy!

Stampin’ Up! Dino Days Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a birthday card made with the Stampin’ Up! Dino Days photopolymer stamp set and the Dinoroar designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The card design was inspired by the Paper Players Sketch Challenge #483. Here is the sketch:

I cut two strips of the geometric Dinoroar designer series paper and adhered them to the background DSP and to a Garden Green card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dino Days stamp set in Garden Green ink on a Whisper White panel. I used the dinosaur footprint stamp to stamp a trail in Crumb Cake ink and cut it out with the largest stitched oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut grass in Garden Green using the Special Day Dies and then cut the bottom with the same stitched oval die. I adhered the grass to the bottom of the oval with multipurpose liquid glue. I cut a mat from Lovely Lipstick card stock using the largest scalloped label in the Layering Ovals dies and adhered it to the back of the oval panel.

I stamped two dinosaurs from the Stampin’ Up! Dino Days stamp set in Balmy Blue ink on Whisper White. I stamped two sets of the back fins in Lovely Lipstick ink on Whisper White. I cut these pieces out with the coordinating dies and adhered them together. I colored the eyes with a black journaling pen. I adhered one of the dinosaurs on the oval panel with dimensionals. Then I adhered the oval panel on the card front with dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of the geometric Dino Roar DSP to a Whisper White panel and adhered the second dinosaur on top. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Dino Days bundle includes the Dino Days photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Dino Dies. The Dinoroar designer series paper was just added to the Sale-A-Bration FREE with $50 purchase list – Yay!! And did you know that some of the dinosaur images in the Dinoroar DSP can also be cut with the Dino Dies?

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I made a card with the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts cling stamp set and the coordinating Nature’s Thoughts Dies from the Coordination Products Release. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the sketch we are using:

I started by embossing a panel of Mint Macaron card stock with the Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder and the 3D embossing folder plate and adhering it to the bottom of a panel of Garden Lane designer series paper with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the layered DSP to a Soft Suede card base. I stamped the Hugs Prayers Love sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts stamp set with Versamark Ink on a Sahara Sand panel and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder. I heat set the embossing powder. I stamped the fern three times on the panel with Mint Macaron ink, once full strength and twice after stamping off. I cut the panel out with the fancy stitched rectangle die from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies and sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink to give it a distressed look.

I stamped the fern from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink on a Whisper White panel. I cut it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the flower in Blushing Bride ink on a Whisper White panel and cut it out with the coordinating die. I cut the flower center out of Blushing Bride card stock with the die from the Nature’s Thoughts dies and pushed up the little die cuts. I also cut out two of the sprigs from Rococo Rose card stock. I lightly sponged all the die cuts with Soft Suede ink.

I adhered the flower center to the stamped flower with multipurpose liquid glue and added a Rococo Rose faceted dot. I arranged the leaves and buds on the embossed panel and adhered them with multipurpose liquid glue. I folded and trimmed a length of white linen ribbon and adhered it with glue dots. I popped the layered flower on with dimensionals and added a linen thread bow. I finished it off with a gold foil butterfly cut with the small butterfly die from the Nature’s Thoughts dies. I adhered the panel to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the corners of a Whisper White panel with the fern stamp in Mint Macaron ink after stamping off. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Garden Lane DSP and adhered it to the inside of the card with snail.

The Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts cling stamp set has so many beautiful natural images and I love all the cards I have seen using it. And it’s so appropriate to our times. Take care!
