Stampin’ Up! Stitched Stars Celebrate Card

Good Morning and Happy 4th of July!! I have wanted to make a patriotic card with the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Stars dies since the die set came out last year, and today is the day!! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere a panel of Playful Pets designer series paper to a Real Red card stock mat. I wrapped length of Real Red satin ribbon around the panel and secured it the back withI Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped a strip of Whisper White card stock with the celebrate sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers cling stamp set using Pacific Point ink. I trimmed the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. I also punched then ends of a Real Red strip and adhered the label to it. Then I used glue dots to adhere the label to the card over the ribbon.

I cut out the stars with the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Stars dies. I adhered the Pacific Point cut-out star to the large Pacific Point stitched star and a Whisper White star to the large Real Red star to add some texture. I added rhinestones to the centers of all the stars and adhered them to the card front with liquid glue and dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of Playful Pets DSP to the side of a Whisper White panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card. I finished off the inside by adhering three additional stars to the upper corner.

Please join me tomorrow at 1:00 ET on my Business Facebook Page for my weekly Facebook Live card making video.

I hope you have a fun and safe 4th of July!

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Sympathy Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a sympathy card made with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony bundle. I paired it with gorgeous Peony Garden designer series paper to make a simple and elegant sympathy card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Using Stampin’ Seal, I adhered a panel of Peony Garden designer series paper to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base. I cut a stitched rectangle frame with the 3rd and 4th largest Stitched Rectangle dies using Whisper White card stock.

I stamped the large peony flower from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony cling stamp set in Gray Granite ink on Whisper White card stock and cut it out with the coordinating die. I adhered the peony to the frame with dots of multipurpose liquid glue and popped the peony and frame on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony stamp set in Versamark ink on Gray Granite card stock. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set until shiny. I cut it out with the small die from the Tasteful Labels die and adhered it to the frame with liquid glue. I adhered a bow made with Gray Granite shimmer ribbon using glue dots and finished the card with three pink Elegant Faceted Gems.

I stamped the large peony flower from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony stamp set in the corner of a Whisper White panel using Gray Granite ink after stamping off twice. I added a strip of the Peony Garden DSP to the bottom and adhered it to a Gray Granite mat and then to the inside of the card.

Sympathy cards are difficult, but the muted colors in the Peony Garden designer series paper makes an elegant card for solemn occasions.

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers stamp set and the new Flowers for Every Season designer series paper to make today’s card. My layout was inspired by a similar card by one of my teammates Leslie Larkin, but her card is a unique fun fold card, so be sure to check it out here after you finish the hop.

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

Isn’t it great to use the new 2020-2022 In Colors? I used them all starting with a Magenta Madness card base. I cut a panel of the pretty Flowers for Every Season designer series paper with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to a Misty Moonlight panel cut out with the next largest die. I popped the layered panels on the card base with dimensionals.

I used the largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut out a Whisper White Panel. I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers photopolymer stamp set at the top of the panel in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I covered them with a mask and stamped the jar below. I stamped the water using the back of the half jar stamp in Pool Party ink stamped off once. Then I stamped the stems in the jar and colored the arrangement with Magenta Madness, Mango Melody, Misty Moonlight, Just Jade, Cinnamon Cider, Soft Sea Foam, Poppy Parade and the Color Lifter Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the flowers on another Whisper White Panel and colored them with Mango Melody, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight and the Color Lifter Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut the flowers with my paper snips and popped it on top of the arrangement.

I wrapped some Misty Moonlight, silver and Whisper White Twine around the scalloped panel and made a bow. I used the Welcome die from the Well Written dies to cut out the welcome word 3 times using Misty Moonlight card stock. I adhered them together with the Fine-Tip Glue pen and adhered it to the scalloped panel. I popped the floral panel on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the flowers again in the middle of a Whisper White panel using Misty Moonlight ink after stamping off 4 times. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of the Flowers for Every Season DSP and adhered it to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Flowers for Every Season DSP is so pretty and colorful – it makes it easy to create beautiful cards.

Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental with Many Medallions Thank You

Good Morning! Today I have fun Thank You card made with the Stampin’ So Sentimental bundle along with the Many Medallions dies. The Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental stamp set is bundled with the Stitched So Sweetly dies and was introduced in the January Mini Catalog. But Yay for us!! -because the set is still bundled in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog with the 10% discount! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut the large medallion die from the Many Medallions dies using Pool Party card stock and adhered it to the front of a Bermuda Bay card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental cling stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink on a Pool Party Panel and cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly die. I cut the larger die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies using Bermuda Bay card stock and adhered the Pool Party Label to it. I popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I made a bow with the Polka Dot Tulle ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot. I finished the card front off with three Pool Party Rhinestones.

I cut another medallion strip from Pool Party card stock using the Many Medallions dies. I adhered it to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and then to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

This was a quick and simple thank you card but it looks really fancy! Its because the Many Medallions dies steps up the design – and it goes really well with the angles and curves in the Stitched So Sweetly label.
