Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today’s card is a floral birthday card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! To a Wild Rose cling stamp set. I think this is one of my favorite flower images and today I used it with the pretty floral lattice and label die cuts. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by embossing a piece of Whisper White cardstock in the Layered Leaves embossing folder and attached it to a Whisper White mat. Then I popped it on a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals.

I die cut the floral lattice from So Saffron cardstock and die cut the label from Whisper White cardstock. These are both from the Wild Roses dies that coordinate with the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose stamp set. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set in So Saffron ink on the label. I attached these to the card. Then I stamped the large rose outline image using So Saffron ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I took the So Saffron Stampin’ Blends to color the flower, using the dark close to the center and under the petals, the light in the middle leaving the petal tips white. Then I cut it out with the coordinating die.

I colored the center with a Pumpkin Pie marker. I stamped the outline leaves using Shaded Spruce ink on Old Olive cardstock and cut them out with the coordinating die. I attached the leaves to the card and then attached the flower. I colored some seam binding ribbon from my stash with the So Saffron re-inker and water and made a bow. I tied a piece of the Polka Dot Tulle ribbon and attached it to the back of the bow and attached both to the label. I finished off the card with three clear small epoxy dots.

I decorated the inside of the card by stamping the outline rose image in So Saffron ink and did the same with the envelope.

This rose stamps beautifully when you use the other two stamps to layer the color on, so I was pleased at how pretty the flower came out with using just the outline stamp and coloring with Stampin’ Blends. Plus I love yellow roses, don’t you? Thanks for visiting!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Stockings Card

Good Morning! Today I am celebrating Christmas in July and sharing a Christmas Card with you. I know it’s early, but I need the idea of starting to plan for Christmas early because I’m such a procrastinator, and my Christmas to-do list is only half done on December 25.

One of my all time favorite Stampin’ Up! Christmas products is the Hang Your Stockings stamp set and the coordinating Stampin’ Up! Christmas Stockings dies. And guess what? These dies have been on the clearance rack for a while, and as of yesterday morning, they’re still there at a nice discount! So, I decided to focus today’s post on the Christmas Stockings dies and use other clearance rack items that I have on hand.

In addition to the clearance rack items, I kind of followed the current sketch at Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge 416, where they must also be getting ready because their alternate theme is Christmas in July so check out the other entries there.

I started by making my stocking. I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Stockings die to cut the main stocking piece in Cherry Cobbler. I had some white glitter paper in my stash and used it to cut the stocking cuff, heel and toe pieces and as well as the snowflake that is embedded in another stocking die. I attached these to the main stocking piece with multipurpose glue. I die cut the hanger loop from Garden Green and attached it to the back. Isn’t it awesome! The Stampin’ Up! Christmas Stockings die set has other pieces where you can cut a Christmas tree, bow, holly and star. There are also other stocking dies to make swirly stockings and Nordic stockings. It is so versatile and the results are amazing!

Another clearance rack item that I used is the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper or DSP. I cut a piece of the red and white floral and adhered it to a Whisper White mat and then to a Cherry Cobbler card base. I took another piece of Whisper White and ran it through my Snow Burst embossing folder. This is retired, but it goes perfect with the red and white DSP because they are both so angular. I cut the green star DSP and attached it to a Garden Green mat and attached it to the card with dimensionals. Then I popped the stocking on with dimensionals. I stamped the Merry Christmas greeting in Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White. This sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up Timeless Tidings, and is also available on the clearance rack. I clipped the corners with the Triple Banner Punch and adhered it to the bottom of the card.

I stamped the and a Happy New Year sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink on a Whisper White panel and added a strip of DSP to the bottom. I finished it off with a Garden Green mat and adhered it to the inside of the card. Yay! One set of Christmas cards is done!

Amy Koenders is my Stampin’ Up! upline (she recruited me to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator) and she was fortunate enough to go on the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip cruising the Greek Isles. On the incentive trip, Amy was lucky enough to also receive an advanced copy of the upcoming 2019 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog and she shared a picture of it on her blog here, along with some early sneak peeks of items in the catalog and lots of pictures of the Mediterranean. Check out her blog at Stamp with Amy K if you haven’t already, because she makes amazing cards!

The 2019 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog will go live on September 4, 2019, but in the meantime, check out your supply stash and start to prepare for Christmas in July. Or if your stash needs a refresh, check out the Stampin’ Up clearance rack, because there are a lot of great items at great prices that are still available while supplies last. There are also a few beautiful products for Christmas in the 2019 Annual Catalog. Thanks and have a great week!

Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today’s card is a masculine birthday card featuring the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man cling stamp set. This set has some great images and sentiments for making birthday and Father’s Day cards for the special men in your life.

I was inspired to use the layout in Sunday Stamps, SSC208 Sketch Fun. Be sure to check out the other fabulous entries in the challenge.

Now for today’s card – you can find supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by taking a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock and running it through the Subtle embossing folder and adhering it to a Mossy Meadow mat with multipurpose liquid glue. I then took a piece of the Mint Macaron striped Magnolia Lane Memories and More card and attached the diamond strips from the retired Delightfully Detailed laser cut DSP and adhered them to the back. I attached this to a strip of mossy meadow cardstock and adhered this to the embossed panel.

I stamped the relaxed man napping in the lawn chair from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on a piece of Whisper White. I stamped the It’s your day sentiment in Mossy Meadow next to the man and colored the piece with Copic markers since I didn’t have the Stampin’ Blends in the colors I wanted to use. I cut out the image with a Layering Square die and then cut a mat from Mossy Meadow in the next larger size square die. I adhered these together and popped the image on the panel with dimensionals. I then used dimensionals to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron card base and added some gold Metallic Pearls to finish off the picture.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the retired Rose Wonder stamp set since the font is similar to the font in the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man stamp set. I decorated it with another strip of the Magnolia Lane Memories and More card pack and a piece of embossed Sahara Sand. I added mats in Mossy Meadow and Sahara Sand and added it to the inside of the card

A nice simple masculine birthday card! Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!

Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Memories and More

Good Morning! I hope you enjoyed the Blog Hop yesterday! Didn’t the cards put you in a Summer Vacation frame of mind? Well today I have something a little different to show you. I have a set of four cards that are made with the Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Memories and More Card Pack and the Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Cards and Envelopes.

The Memories and More card packs by Stampin’ Up! have 6″ x 4″ and 3″ x 4″ double sided cards that all coordinate and special laser cut stickers and other goodies. This has the following advantages:

  • It makes card making easy and quick for the beginner paper crafter or busy person with limited crafting time.
  • The card are perfectly sized and designed for Memory Keeping Journal pocket pages and Scrapbooking.

The Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Memories and More card pack has cards that coordinate with the Good Morning Magnolia stamps and dies and the Magnolia Lane DSP. It also coordinates with the Verdant Garden stamp set and Garden Lane DSP. And it coordinates with most of the greens in the Stampin’ Up! color world.

For today’s cards, I paired it up with the Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Cards and Envelopes which has the casual elegance of craft paper with white foil accents and envelope liners! Plus they are larger so that they fit a 6″ x 4″ card perfectly. Let me show you.

These pictures show the first card. The top picture shows the two cards from the Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Memories and More card pack that I used to create the card. I used a Pear Pizzazz scrap for a mat and dressed it up with sequins and an Old Olive linen thread (now retired) bow. On the inside, I cut a piece of Whisper White and decorated it with some stickers from the pack and used a mat in Mint Macaron. Easy Peasy!

For the second card, I only used a 3″ x 4″ card from the memories and more card pack for the card front, so you can see the pretty white foil on the front of the card! There’s room to put a thin mat behind it, so I used Old Olive and dressed it up with some sequins and bow. For the inside, I just used one of the 4″ x 6″ cards from the memories and more card pack and added another flower sticker. Again – Easy Peasy!

I chose to mix it up a bit with this card because I wanted to use the Happy Birthday sentiment with it. So I used one of the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut the sentiment from the card and adhered it with dimensionals to cover the existing sentiment. And I added a white mat to provide contrast for the smaller card. On the inside I added a strip of Vellum to the bottom and added another sticker. And of course, I added a Basic Black mat. A little more complicated, but it still went together fast.

The last one was the most complicated because I stamped, colored and die cut the magnolia bud from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and laid it on a mint macaron die cut stitched circle. When I was looking for a sentiment to stamp, I decided to just use the thank you from the card, so I cut it out and covered the opening with a flag sticker behind the die cut circle. I then put a tail on the sentiment and re-attached in a different place. I added a Mossy Meadow mat, sequins and a bow and used dimensionals to attach the little card. On the inside, I just used another Mossy Meadow mat and added some stickers.

I hope that I’ve given you some fresh ideas on how to quickly create pretty cards. The Stampin’ Up Magnolia Lane Memories and More card pack is very versatile – you can keep it simple or make it elaborate. Thanks for Visiting!

Stampin’ Up! High Tide Thinking of You Card

Hello and welcome to Amy’s Inkin Krew Blog Hop. This month’s theme is ‘Celebrate Summer‘ and I have a summer at the shore card featuring the Stampin’ Up! High Tide photopolymer stamp set, the Colorful Season photopolymer stamp set and Seasonal Layers dies.

I started by stamping the waves from the Stampin’ Up! High Tide stamp set in Blueberry Bushel ink on a Pool Party background. I sponged the ocean with Balmy Blue and used my white gel pen to add white highlights. I stamped the flock of seagulls in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the sun from the Stampin’ Up! Waterfront stamp set in Daffodil Delight ink on Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it and adhered it to the Pool Party panel.

I stamped the sand using Sahara Sand ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped second time below. I stamped several times to get the texture I was happy with. I sponged the bottom with Sahara Sand ink and stamped the Thinking of You sentiment in Early Espresso ink. I tore the top of the Very Vanilla piece and attached it to the main panel over the ocean. I stamped the sea grass in Old Olive ink, going over the ocean and attached the panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat.

I die cut two Adirondack chairs in Real Red and glued them together with the fine tipped glue pen and attached the chair to the panel with dimensionals. I used dimensionals to attach the panel to a Sahara Sand card Base.

For the inside, I stamped more sand, seagrass and seagulls on a Very Vanilla panel. I matted it with Blueberry Bushel and adhered it to the inside of the card.

I am usually a traditionalist, but I just love those bright colorful plastic Adirondack chairs that they have at the home improvement stores, so I had to have one for my shore card! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the Blog Hop.
