Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Birthday Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers cling stamp set is a sweet floral stamp set that became super wonderful when Stampin’ Up! released the Fresh Cut Stems dies as part of the Perfect Partners Promotion. I used them both for today’s floral Birthday Card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Adhere a panel of Fresh Freesia Tea Boutique designer series paper to the right side of a Basic White mat. Cut a strip of Fresh Freesia card stock with the pretty lattice border die from the Fresh Cut Stems dies and adhere it to the left side of the mat with liquid glue. Emboss another strip of Fresh Freesia with the Gingham embossing folder and adhere it to the left side of the mat. Wrap a length of white baker’s twine twice around the panel and tie a bow. Adhere the panel to the front of a Fresh Freesia Card base.

Cut two of the berry branch dies from the Fresh Cut Stems dies from Soft succulent and adhere them to the card front with liquid glue. Stamp the large flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Smoky Slate ink on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. Color the flowers with Stampin’ Blends, using Daffodil Delight and Fresh Freesia on the Blossoms and light Old Olive and Soft Succulent on the leaves. Blend the color on the flowers using the light Daffodil Delight and light Fresh Freesia. Color the little flowers in the center with light Calypso Coral and adhere the panel to the card front with dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Smoky Slate on Basic White. Cut out the sentiment with the small label die from the Potted Succulents dies and adhere it to the card with dimensionals and glue dots. Finish the card with the pretty Fresh Freesia Opal Gems.

For the inside of the card, stamp the sweet sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Smoky Slate on a Basic White panel. Stamp the little sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Fresh Freesia ink next to the sentiment. Trim the bottom with a strip of Tea Boutique DSP and adhere the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set has such pretty floral images and goes well with other stamp sets. The Perfect Partners promotion ends in a couple of days, so if you are interested in getting the coordinating Fresh Cut Stems dies, act soon before they’re gone.

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths Card with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Here is the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths grateful card that I made during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. I’m going to be sending these to my family at Thanksgiving, so I’m considering them Thanksgiving cards. Plus it’s a fun fold, so they should enjoy receiving them! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

You can watch my Facebook live from yesterday afternoon HERE. I have also posted it to my YouTube Channel and you can view it HERE.

Adhere the left side of the Sahara Sand card base shut with liquid glue to form the book hinge. Adhere the Happy Forest Friends designer series paper panels to the Mossy Meadow mats with liquid glue and adhere them to the front panels of the card base with liquid glue, the skinny strip on the book hinge. Wrap a length of Old Olive ribbon around the book hinge and make a bow, securing it with a glue dot.

Emboss a Sahara Sand panel with the pretty Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder and adhere it to a Mossy Meadow mat with liquid glue. Adhere the layered panel to the card front with dimensionals. Stamp the leafy wreath from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths photopolymer stamp set using Mango Melody ink on Basic White. Stamp the twiggy leaf over the leafy wreath using Soft Suede ink and cut out the wreath with the leafy wreath die. Adhere the wreath to the card front with liquid glue.

Cut two leaf clusters from Cajun Craze and two Oak leaves from Mossy Meadow using the dies from the Country Wreaths dies. Adhere the leaves to the top of the wreath with liquid glue. Make a bow from a length of Linen Thread and adhere it to the top of the wreath with a glue dot. Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Cajun Craze on a So Saffron panel. Adhere it to a Mossy Meadow mat and to the wreath with liquid glue. Finish the wreath with amber gems.

For the inside of the card, stamp the little oak leaves and acorns from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths stamp set in the corner of a Basic White panel. Stamped the leaves in Old Olive, Cajun Craze & Mango Melody and the acorns in Soft Suede. If your stamp pads are a little dry, use a blender pen to blend the colors a little and soften the tiny dots. Trim the bottom of the panel with Happy Forest Friends DSP and adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

With Fall in the air, I’m ready to plant mums and decorate a Fall wreath for my front door. The Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths bundle is perfect for wreath cards for any time of year, so be sure to check it out!

Stampin’ Up! By My Side Friendship Card

Good Morning! I hope you are enjoying a beautiful Fall weekend! Today I have a cute little friendship card made with the Stampin’ Up! Side By Side cling stamp set and the cute Playful Piggy Dies that are available with the Perfect Partners promotion this month. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of Tahitian Tide plaid 2022-2024 In Color 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of a Tahitian Tide card base. I stamped the little boy with the dog from the Stampin’ Up! By My Side stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White along with an extra dog. I colored the little boy and dogs with Stampin’ Blends. I used the dark Smoky Slate and Natural Medium Tones 006 on the dogs and Natural Medium Light Tones 008, light Pumpkin Pie, Light Night of Navy and dark Crumb Cake on the little boy. I fussy cut all three on the line with my paper snips and colored the edge of the paper with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker.

I cut the grass from the Playful Piggy dies from Granny Apple Green and adhered it to the Balmy Blue panel with liquid glue. I cut the wagon from Sweet Sorbet and the wheels and handle from Basic Black and adhered them together with liquid glue. I cut two clouds from the Give it a Whirl dies from Basic White and adhered them to the top of the Balmy Blue panel. I trimmed the cloud with my paper snips and adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat. I adhered the little boy and dogs to the panel with liquid glue and adhered the die cut wagon with dimensionals. I adhered the panel to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the little butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! By My Side stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic White and fussy cut it with my paper snips. I colored it with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic white and cut it out with the Playful Piggy label die. I adhered a strip of ribbon to the card with glue dots and adhered the label over the ribbon with bits of dimensionals straddling the ribbon.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment, dog and butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! By My Side stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the dog with the Ivory and the butterfly with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of 2022-2024 In Color DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The little children in the Stampin’ Up! By my Side stamp set are really sweet and I love the wagon from the Playful Piggy dies. I hope you like the combination as much as I do! And hurry, because this is the last week for the Perfect Partners promotion!

Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I used the pretty Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn bundle with the Rustic Harvest designer series paper for an Autumn Wishes card. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a fun color challenge this week. The Rustic Harvest DSP was perfect for this and I popped it with Sweet Sorbet.

I adhered a panel of Rustic Harvest designer series paper to a Basic Black card base with liquid glue. I cut the large floral dies from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn bundle from Basic White using both the detailed die and the outline die. I cut the outline die from a Basic Black panel and adhered them together with liquid glue. I adhered the die cut to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn photopolymer stamp set in Versamark ink on Basic Black. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heat set the powder with my heat tool until it was shiny. I cut it out with the Stylish Shapes banner die and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Sweet Sorbet and Basic Black Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out with the coordinating die. I adhered a folded length of black and white gingham ribbon and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I adhered the flower over the ribbon and label with dimensionals and finished with three white dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I colored it with Sweet Sorbet and Basic Black Stampin’ Blends. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Rustic Harvest DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn bundle is really pretty and perfect for fall cards! I can’t wait to play with it again!

Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Thank You Card

Good Morning! One of the die sets that is available this month as part of the Perfect Partners promotion is the Apple Blossoms Dies and they coordinate with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest cling stamp set. I used the stamp set and dies to make this pretty thank you card because I went apple picking last weekend at my local orchard! It was so much fun and the weather was beautiful! But back to the card – you can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered the two small panels of the 2022-2024 In Color 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the card front and the small Sweet Sorbet panel with liquid glue. I adhered the large Sweet Sorbet DSP panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue. I used Tear & Tape adhesive to adhere the small layered panel to the front of the card, being careful not to tape the card shut. I cut a panel of Basic White with the 5th largest Stitched Rectangle die. I used a blending brush to apply a light wash of Pool Party ink across the front. I adhered the die cut to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the the apple branch and the single apple from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White. I colored the apples in Sweet Sorbet and the leaves in Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. I used Soft Suede for the stem and seeds and added touches of light So Saffron to the apple center and light Petal Pink to the flower centers. I cut the apples out with the coordinating dies from the Apple Blossom dies and adhered the single apple to the card front with liquid glue.

I adhered the second apple die cut to the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest stamp set in Versamark ink on Sweet Sorbet and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool until it was shiny. I cut it out with the label die from the Tree Trimmings dies, another die set that is available as part of the Perfect Partners promotion this month. I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots. I adhered some light Tahitian Tide matte dots to the card around the flowers and leaves. I made a bow from Pool Party ribbon and adhered it to the card front with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, used the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle die to cut a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest stamp set in the corner in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used the light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend to color the center and adhered the die cut rectangle to the inside of the card with liquid glue so that it is hidden under the front flap when the card is closed.

The Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest stamp set is such a pretty set and I love the wonderful dies that the Perfect Partners promotion brings!

Use the large striped background die from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes bundle to cut a white glimmer paper panel and adhere the die cut stripes to the front of a Sweet Sorbet Card base. Cut a panel of Basic White with the second largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circle dies and a panel of Sweetest Christmas DSP with the second largest stitched circle from the Stylish Shapes dies. Adhere the circles together and adhere them to the center of the card with liquid glue.

Use the Christmas Banners dies to cut a panel of Soft Succulent card stock with the pine sprig die and a panel of Shaded Spruce with the leaf sprig die. Adhere them to the card front with glue dots. Stamp two of the small leaf sprigs from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes cling stamp set in Garden Green on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating die. Adhere them to the card front with glue dots. Stamp the candy cane in Sweet Sorbet on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. Adhere the candy cane to the card front with dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes stamp set in Sweet Sorbet on Basic White. Cut it out with the wide banner die from the Stylish Shapes dies and adhere it to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots. Loop a length of white baker’s twine through the top of a Jingle Bell trinket and make a bow. Adhere the jingle bell to the card front with a glue dot. Finish the card with three dots of red pearlized enamel accents and let them dry for about 1 hour so they don’t smudge (I did the inside of the card first and then had a finished card when the dots dried!).

For the inside of the card, stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes stamp set in Sweet Sorbet on a Basic White panel. Stamp the little leaf sprig in Garden Green under the sentiment and adhere a strip of Sweetest Christmas DSP to the bottom before adhering it to the inside of the card.

I love candy canes and always put them on my Christmas Tree, so the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes is perfect to celebrate the holiday! The sentiments are wonderful for holiday greetings inside and outside your card and when paired with the Christmas Banners bundle and the Sweet Christmas DSP, you have everything you need for a variety of beautiful Christmas cards, tags and favors!

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Thinking Of You Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings cling stamp set is one of the prettiest leaf stamp sets ever. This maple leaf with seeds is so graceful and wonderfully shaded. And I love the sentiments! I used it with the pretty Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder for a simple thinking of you card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a Very Vanilla panel with the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder and adhered it to an Early Espresso mat. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Pumpkin Pie card base with dimensionals.

I inked up the large leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings stamp set with Pumpkin Pie ink and used a sponge dauber to apply Cajun Craze ink around the edge of the leaf. I used another sponge dauber to apply Parakeet Party ink to the stem and stamped the leaf on Very Vanilla. I used my paper snips to fussy cut around the leaf. I adhered the leaf to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings stamp set in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla. I used the large label die from the Waves dies to cut the sentiment using a two step die cutting technique (cut half the label, move the die to the other half and cut the other half). I looped some Sahara Sand ribbon through the label and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I finished the card with an amber gem.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the seed from the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings stamp set in Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Parakeet Party on a Very Vanilla panel using the same sponge dauber technique to ink the stamp. I embossed a strip of Pumpkin Pie card stock with the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

There are so many beautiful card made with the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings stamp set. I love the cards made using the Joseph’s Coat technique and the baby wipe technique. It’s so versatile and I’m planning to play with this beautiful stamp set some more.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I made another Fall hello note card with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest bundle. I love the debossed die cut pumpkin on card stock – you can really see the texture! You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a sketch challenge this week and this was a challenge! I softened the angles by using the curvy Seasonal Labels dies – it’s kind of close.

I was also inspired by the pretty fall colors in the Sunday Stamps SSC291 Autumn Rays Challenge:

I embossed a Crushed Curry panel of Rustic Harvest designer series paper with the beautiful Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Crushed Curry Card base. I cut a Mossy Meadow panel of the Rustic Harvest DSP with the large Seasonal Label die and embossed it with the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder before adhering it to the card front.

I stamped sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Crushed Curry. I stamped the dotted line under the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black before cutting it out with the Seasonal Labels die. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I colored a Textural Element berry branch with the Soft Suede Stampin’ Blend and adhered it with glue dots. I cut the pumpkin from Pumpkin Pie and the stem from Soft Suede. I put them together with liquid glue before adhering them to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped 4 flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic White. I colored them with Cajun Craze and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends and adhered them to the card with dimensionals and glue dots. I finished the card with an amber gemstone.

For the inside of the card, I the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I colored it with Cajun Craze and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Rustic Harvest DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest bundle is pretty versatile with the pretty stamped and die pumpkins and fall flowers. I hope you agree my interpretation of the Blog Hop sketch is close enough.
