Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Thank You Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a simple card made with a couple of the wonderful FREE Sale-A-Bration items – the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments stamp set and the pretty Daffodil Afternoon designer series paper. 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 the pretty Daffodil Afternoon designer series paper to a Flirty Flamingo mat and then wrapped the layered panel with Flirty Flamingo and gold ribbon. I secured it in the back with Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the layered panel to the front of an Evening Evergreen card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments photopolymer stamp set in Evening Evergreen on a Crushed Curry panel. I cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals over the ribbon – make sure the dimensionals adhere to the DSP as well as the ribbon to keep it secure. I finished the card front with three iridescent jewels.

I kept the inside card simple, by just adhering a strip of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP to the bottom of a Very Vanilla Panel and adhering the panel to the inside of the card. This leaves plenty of room to write a personal message!

Pretty DSP is wonderful for making simple cards! Adding a few shiny embellishments such as ribbon or jewels really steps it up. And the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments stamp set is full of wonderful sentiments that are great for many different occasions with so many different and beautiful fonts. It’s already one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration items!

Stampin’ Up! Gumball Greetings for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today card, I used the fun Stampin’ Up! Gumball Greetings bundle to make a shaker birthday card. I used the Gumball Machine shaker dome and filled it with the Frosted beads. I also used the Pattern Party designer series paper for the background. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week – here is the pretty sketch we are using:

I stamped the gumball dome from the Stampin’ Up! Gumball Greetings photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on a Basic White panel. I stamped several gumballs in Poppy Parade, Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight and cut them out with the coordinating die. I adhered them to the stamped gumball dome back with liquid glue and put a pile of frosted beads in the middle. I peeled off the adhesive backing from one of the plastic gumball shaker domes and adhered it to the stamped dome, securing the frosted beads inside.

I cut a panel of Pattern Party designer series paper with the gumball dome die from the Stampin’ Up! Gumball Greetings bundle and pulled the adhesive strip covering off the front of the shaker dome. I adhered the shaker dome to the back of the die cut DSP and then adhered it to a Granny Apple Green mat. I adhered it to the front of a Crushed curry card base with liquid glue. I cut the gumball dome top, base, handle and trim pieces from Poppy Parade. I adhered the trim pieces to the dome top and the base – this gives the gumball machine some nice dimension! I adhered the base to the card front under the dome and the top to the top of the dome. I lifted the gumball opening slightly and adhered a stamped gumball under it with a glue dot.

I cut some silver foil with the coin plate die from the Stampin’ Up! Gumball Greetings bundle and adhered it to the gumball machine base with dimensionals. I cut the spinner from Poppy Parade and popped it on the machine with dimensionals. I finished the spinner with a silver metallic pearl. I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery photopolymer stamp set in Poppy Parade on a strip of Crushed Curry and cut it out with the label from the Floral Gallery dies. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

For the inside, I stamped the gumball machine from the Stampin’ Up! Gumball Greetings stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel and colored it with Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink next to the gumball machine and trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Pattern Party DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Gumball Greetings bundle is so much

Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Thank You Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home bundle is one of the prettiest floral sets in the new Jan-Jun Mini Catalog with vintage dainty florals and coordinating dies. I used the bundle with the beautiful Heart & Home designer series paper, the Scalloped Contours dies and the sweet little thank you sentiment and tag from the Hydrangea Haven bundle. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut a panel of Garden Green Heart & Home designer series paper with the large scalloped border die from the Scalloped Contours dies and adhered it to another panel of Heart & Home designer series paper. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic White mat and adhered it to the front of a Pale Papaya card base.

I stamped the small floral bouquet from the Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a panel of Shimmery White card stock. I colored the image with my water painters and Garden Green, Daffodil Delight, Cinnamon Cider, and Fresh Freesia inks. I was careful not let the water painters get too moist since I was not using Stazon ink. After the inks dried, I cut the flower out with the coordinating die. I cut a Basic White panel with the Scalloped Contours die and used a blending brush to apply some Pool Party ink to the background. I cut two of the Flowers of Home dies from Fresh Freesia and adhered them to the panel with liquid glue and popped the watercolored bouquet on top with dimensionals.

I popped the art piece on the front of the card with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Versamark ink on a Garden Green panel 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 tag die and popped it on the card front with dimensionals. I added a white baker’s twine bow and finished the card front with Genial Gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the small floral bouquet from the Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home stamp set in Memento Tuxedo black in the corners of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Heart & Home DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I love the Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home bundle! It has a vintage, shabby chic feel that is pretty, sweet and feminine!

Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront Happy Day Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront stamp set is another one of the photopolymer watercolor stamp sets that create wonderful landscapes. This one has some angled stamps that are wonderful for shore scenes. There are no sentiments in the set, so I used the Many Messages cling stamp and Messages die for my sentiment – the scene is perfect for a smaller sentiment. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered three strips of In Good Taste rustic wood grained designer series paper to the front of a Coastal Cabana card base. I embossed a panel of Soft Suede with the Macrame embossing folder and adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the angled ocean stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront stamp set in Pacific Point on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sky stamp from the stamp set in Balmy Blue on top of the ocean and the angled shoreline in Sahara Sand under the ocean. I stamped the spatter in Sahara Sand over the sand and I stamped the sea oats in Soft Suede. Finally, I stamped the birds from the Mountain Air photopolymer stamp set in Basic Gray in the sky. I adhered the panel to a Pacific Point mat and wrapped a length of linen thread around the panel and made a bow.

I popped the stamped panel onto the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Many Messages stamp set in Soft Suede on Balmy Blue card stock and cut it out with the Messages die. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals over the linen thread.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sea oats from the Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront stamp set in Soft Suede on a Basic White panel. I adhered another strip of In Good Taste DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront stamp set is fun for making artistic ocean landscapes. And I love the little sentiment from the Many Messages stamp because any day by the shore is a happy day!

Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Miss You Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home bundle is one of the prettiest sets of floral stamps and dies. I paired it with the pretty Heart & Home designer series paper and Many Messages stamp to make a simple card. 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 Heart & Home designer series paper to a Basic White mat and adhered them both to the front of Fresh Freesia card base. I cut another panel of Heart & Home DSP with the Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to a garden green mat with liquid glue.

I stamped the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home cling stamp set in Basic Gray ink and colored it with Stampin’ Blends. I used Fresh Freesia on the flowers and the leaves with Light Shaded Spruce and Light Mossy Meadow – this gives me a color that is real close to Garden Green. I cut the flower out with the coordinating die and popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Many Messages cling stamp in Evening Evergreen and cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle die. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and finished the card with three brass butterflies and a white baker’s twine bow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home stamp set in Evening Evergreen on a Basic White panel. I cut a Fresh Freesia panel with the floral die from the Honeybee Blooms dies and adhered it to the bottom of the panel with liquid glue. I adhered a strip of Heart & Home DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s card, I used the brand new Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips bundle with the Flowering Fields designer series paper to make a cheery Birthday card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch this week – here is the pretty sketch we are using:

I adhered a panel of colorful Flowering Fields designer series paper to the front of a Pear Pizzazz card base. I cut a strip of Calypso Coral card stock with the tulip border die from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips bundle and adhered it to a polka dot panel of Flowering Fields DSP. I adhered the layered DSP panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Fields photopolymer stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink and cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle die. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I finished the card front with Genial Gems and a bow made with the pretty Evening Evergreen Windowpane Check ribbon.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the tulip from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips stamp set in Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Memento Tuxedo Black and Pear Pizzazz on the side of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set in Evening Evergreen in the middle of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

With the versatile Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips multi-step photopolymer stamp set, it’s easy to create pretty multicolored flowers! And when paired with the coordinating Tulips dies, you can make dimensional flowers as well!

Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello Sneak Peek

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello bundle is a Sale-A-Bration item that you can choose for FREE with a $100 order (before shipping and taxes) during the upcoming Jan-Feb 2022 Sale-A-Bration that begins on January 4, 2022. It consists of a pretty photopolymer stamp set along with a set of coordinating designer series paper! I used it to make today’s pretty Hello Friend card. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a panel of Friendly Hello designer series paper in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and adhered it to the front of a Pool Party card base. I cut a panel of Friendly Hello DSP with the bird and flowers centered on the panel. I cut two Shaded Spruce strips with the Ornate Layers die and adhered them to the top and bottom back of the bird panel and adhered the bird panel to the stamped DSP panel. I adhered the layered DSP panel to the front of a Pool Party card base.

I stamped the bird and flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the bird in Pool Party and the flowers in Fresh Freesia, Petal Pink and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut the bird and flowers with my Paper Snips and adhered them over the bird and flowers in the DSP.

I adhered faux pearls around the bird and made a bow with Pool Party ribbon and adhered it to the front with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello stamp set in Fresh Freesia and Granny Apple Green on the top corner of the panel. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of the Friendly Hello DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The coordinating images in the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello Sale-A-Bration bundle are sweet and the stamp set has some pretty sentiments. Here’s a picture of the stamp set with some of the pretty papers:

The colors in the pretty Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello designer series paper are Basic Black, Fresh Freesia, Granny Apple Green, Petal Pink, Pool Party and Shaded Spruce. These colors are so soft and fresh and perfect for spring.

Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today card, I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants bundle to make a Love You card. Do you have indoor plants? I used to have lots of them, but I’ve lost my green thumb these days. It’s sad because they really brighten things up on dreary winter days. I’ll have to look into this again. But anyway, you can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a special challenge this week – we’re all making fun fold cards! My fun fold is an accordion card inspired by Cindy Brumbaugh at CindyLeeBee Designs.

I adhered panels of Bloom Where You’re Planted designer series paper to each of the scored panels of the Just Jade card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants photopolymer stamp set in Evening Evergreen in the top corner of the brick design Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP and adhered it to the right side of the scored Cinnamon Cider mini card. I stamped the leaf spray in Just Jade on the top corner of the wood panelling design Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP and adhered it to the right side of the Cinnamon Cider mini card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink in the top corner of a Basic White panel and stamped the other top corner with a vine in Garden Green ink. I adhered the panel to a Just Jade mat and adhered it to the inside of the card. I adhered strips of Tear & Tape to the edges of the Cinnamon Cider mini card and pulled off the covers and adhered it to the first inside fold by lining it up with the inside panel. I closed the folds and pulled the covers off the Tear & Tape and folded the Cinnamon Cider mini card over the front flap to adhere it.

I stamped the 5 leaf cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants stamp set in Garden Green on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the large pot in Cajun Craze and fussy cut it with my paper snips. I cut a panel of Sahara Sand with the hanging basket die and adhered the plant and pot to the basket with liquid glue. I adhered the basket to the card front with liquid glue. I cut a Cinnamon Cider panel with the vase die and adhered it with liquid glue. I cut an Evening Evergreen panel with the leafy die and adhered it on top of the pot with liquid glue. I finished the front with 3 metallic butterflies from the upcoming Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog (available Jan 4, 2022).

I stamped the 3 leaf plant in Garden Green on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the planter in Cinnamon cider and cut it out with the coordinating die. I adhered the plant to the back of the planter and adhered them both to the inside flap of the card. I adhered a die cut Sahara Sand vase next to the plant

I adhered some more empty Sahara Sand die cut vases to the bottom of the inside panel under the Basic White panel, so that they kind of peek out when the card is folded closed.

This fun fold is 1/4″ narrower than a standard A2 card, but it still fits in a standard envelope, with plenty of room for the accordion fold and card front embellishments. And it was so much fun using the different patterns in the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP and the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants bundle to make a verdant card to inspire winter indoor gardens!
