Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Happy Birthday Card

Good Morning on the last day of 2019! Today I have another sneak peek of the pretty Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips bundle that will be available on Friday when the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog becomes available. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the Perennial Essence designer series paper to a Blackberry Bliss card base. I cut a panel of Balmy Blue card stock with the Stitched Rectangle die. I stamped three stems and some leaves in Mossy Meadow ink on the die cut panel. I ran it through the Scripty embossing folder.

I stamped 3 of the large tulips from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on a panel of Whisper White. I cut out the flowers using the Tulip Builder punch and then colored them with the Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush. I attached them to the embossed panel with dimensionals. It’s too bad the shine from the Wink of Stella doesn’t show very well because the effect is dramatic!

I stamped the happy birthday sentiment on a strip of Whisper White and cut it out with another Stitched Rectangle Die. I adhered it to the embossed panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed it with a pink Noble Peacock rhinestone gem. I adhered the panel to the card base with dimensionals.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the tulip flower from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on a panel of Whisper White. I brushed the Wink of Stella over it like the flowers on the card front. I added a stem and leaf in Mossy Meadow. I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Perennial Essence DSP. I adhered the decorated panel to the inside of the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I also stamped the tulip, stem and leaves on the left side of a Whisper White Medium Envelope to coordinate with the card.

I love the dark purple tulips in the Springtime, but sadly, there are deer nearby, so I can’t grow them very well. So instead, when the snows melt, I will be greeted by the happy yellow daffodils instead. Can we just skip the snow part?

Have fun and be safe if you are celebrating the New Year’s Eve tonight!

Stampin’ Up! December Paper Pumpkin Kit – Something for Everything

Good Morning! Today I am sharing another Paper Pumpkin Kit video that I did yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. This is a wonderful Paper Pumpkin kit that has lots of short sentiments for different occasions in a large typewriter style font – so it’s great to use for masculine cards as well.

These are the cards that I have made with the kit so far. I have only used a few of the sentiments so far.

Here’s the Facebook Live video where I put together some of my cards:

I also posted the video to my YouTube channel and you can view it here.

I basically made one of each card pretty much following the main instructions. I did not go wild with creating something completely different because the cards in the kit are pretty nice as designed.

Plus the elements in the kit can be mixed up with each other nicely – and there are lots of extra pieces for making additional coordinating cards. I did choose to stamp some of the sentiments in Shaded Spruce ink which I had in my stash and I used some Grapefruit Grove twine from the Nature’s twine pack on one of my samples.

If you’d like to see the video that Paper Pumpkin put together to show how to make the Something For Everything kit, you can view it here. And here are some alternatives that Paper Pumpkin put together:

And did you know that you can download stamp case inserts for your Paper Pumpkin kits? Check them out at the bottom of the page here. I think these sentiments are going to be used over and over, so I will download the case insert and store them in their own case with the rest of my Stampin’ Up! stamps.

If you’re interested in subscribing to Paper Pumpkin, you can either sign up for a subscription where you are billed monthly for your kit or you can purchase a prepaid subscription in my online store. To see more information and to sign up for the monthly subscription click here.

Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer Sneak Peek

Good Morning! Today I have another sneak peek of a stamp set that will be featured in Sale-A-Bration starting on January 3, 2020. It is the Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer cling stamp set and it is so cute! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card is a birthday card from a group of people, like something for a co-worker from the rest of the office. I started by stamping the group of meerkats from the Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the from all of us sentiment underneath in Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the meerkats with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and the ground with the Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend. I outlined the little critters with the Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend.

I adhered the meerkats to a Basic Black mat with multipurpose liquid glue and tied Grapefruit Grove twine around it and made a bow. I cut a panel of the Birthday Bonanza designer series paper and adhered strips of the other prints in the Birthday Bonanza DSP pack on top of it with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat and adhered the layered panel to a Grapefruit Grove card base with dimensionals.

I adhered the meerkat panel to the card base with dimensionals.

On the inside of the card, I adhered a strip of the present paper from the Birthday Bonanza DSP pack to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer stamp set along with the single meerkat (this is the Birthday Person!). I colored the meerkat with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer cling stamp set is one of the Sale-A-Bration choices that is FREE with a $50 purchase (before shipping and taxes). Sale-A-Bration starts on January 3, 2020 with the start of the new Mini Catalog. It is the biggest Stampin’ Up! sale of the year. And these little meerkats are sooo cute!!!

Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence Hello Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I hope you’re enjoying everyone’s projects and I’m sure everyone loved your handmade Christmas Cards! While we’re awaiting the launch of the new Mini Catalog on January 3, I thought I would return to some old favorites for a Hello Card for today’s Hop. Here is my card:

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

I started by stamping six flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence stamp set in Rococo Rose on Very Vanilla Card Stock. I punched them out with the Perennial Flower Punch and curled the petals with my bone folder. I adhered the centers of two petal clusters to make three flowers and added a Perennial Essence floral center to each. I punched 5 leaf clusters from Old Olive vellum using the Leaf punch.

I adhered a panel of the wood grain paper from the Pressed Petals specialty designer series paper to a very vanilla mat. I adhered a strip of the floral Pressed Petals paper to a soft suede mat and adhered it to the wood grained panel background. I stamped the hello sentiment from the A Little Lace stamp set using Rococo Rose ink on a strip of Very Vanilla and trimmed the end before adhering it to the panel.

I arranged the vellum leaves and flowers on the panel and adhered it with glue dots. I made a bow from the Very Vanilla scalloped lace trim and adhered it next to the flowers. I adhered the decorated panel to a Rococo Rose card base using dimensionals.

I kept the inside of the card simple and only decorated it by adhering a strip of the floral Pressed Petals DSP to the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel and adhering to the inside of the card. This leaves plenty of room to write a personal hello message!

I can’t wait to mix up these flowers with some of the new items in the upcoming Mini Catalog!

Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet and Happy Birthday To You Sneak Peeks

Good Morning! Today I have another sneak peek for stamp sets in the new Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure. My card is made with the new Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet stamp set from the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalog and the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You stamp set from the new Sale-A-Bration Brochure. Both of these will be available on January 3, 2020. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The background is made with the Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet stamp set from the Mini Catalog. Isn’t it pretty? It is a background cling stamp set with line images just bursting with flowers. For this card, I mounted it in my Stamparatus and stamped it in Versamark ink on a Balmy Blue panel. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set.

Then I cut a strip of vellum with one of the Delicate Lace Dies and wrapped it around the panel, adhering it in the back with snail. I wrapped a length of the new Whisper White crinkled seam binding ribbon around the edge and adhered it in the back with snail. I adhered the panel to a Balmy Blue card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the floral cake from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You stamp set in smoky slate ink on a panel of Whisper White. This is one of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets that will be available FREE with a $50 purchase (before shipping and taxes) starting January 3, 2020! I colored the image with Balmy Blue, Smoky Slate, Granny Apple Green, So Saffron and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. I accented the Balmy Blue flowers with Wink of Stella (too bad you can’t see the shimmer very well) and popped it on the card with dimensionals. I added the bow made with the crinkle seam binding ribbon and three pearls.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Balmy Blue on a panel of Whisper White. I stamped and heat embossed a strip of Balmy Blue to match the front and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet is going to be an awesome addition to the lineup of background stamps, providing lots of versatility in creating a feminine florals. And one of the stamps that it coordinates with perfectly is the birthday cake in the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You Sale-A-Bration stamp set. Both will be available on January 3, 2020.
