Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Thank You Card

Good Morning! Tomorrow is the BIG DAY when the new Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog is open for orders!! Yay!! In preparation, I am saying good bye to one of my favorite designer series paper packs – Best Dressed – by using it with a sneak peek of one of the cute new stamp sets in the new catalog, the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers. They look so good together! 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 adhering a panel of the Best Dressed designer series paper to a Lovely Lipstick card base. Today is also the last day for all the Lovely Lipstick products as it is one of the 2018-2020 In Colors retiring today!

I stamped the rose bouquet from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel and colored it with the Lovely Lipstick, Granny Apple Green, Petal Pink, Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the flowers again on a Whisper White panel and fussy cut the roses. I colored them with Lovely Lipstick and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the jar from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the stems and colored them with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the water in Pool Party ink after stamping off.

I cut the panel out with the third largest stitched rectangle die and adhered it to an Old Olive mat. I popped the fussy cut roses on the panel with dimensionals and brushed it with Clear Wink of Stella to give it some glitter. I colored some Whisper White crinkle ribbon with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend and made a bow and adhered it with a mini glue dot. I stamped the Thanks sentiment from the Many Mates cling stamp set in Old Olive ink on a Whisper White strip and trimmed the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. I used the punch to trim the ends of a Lovely Lipstick panel and adhered the label with dimensionals. I adhered the layered label with liquid glue and adhered the panel to the card base with dimensionals. I finished it off with three Lovely Lipstick enamel dots.

I decorated the inside by adhering a strip of Best Dressed designer series paper to the bottom of a Whisper White panel before adhering it to the inside of the card.

Good bye to the pretty Best Dressed designer series paper and Lovely Lipstick and a hearty hello and welcome to the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers stamp set as it will be a favorite in the new Annual Catalog. It has a coordinating Jar Punch, reversible stamps and fun shaker domes, plus there are four flowers bouquets that you can put on top! Be sure to check them out when the catalog goes live tomorrow!

Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Father’s Day Card

Good Morning! Today’s card is a simple masculine card made with the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man stamp set for Father’s Day. This is a wonderful set with family themes that is great for masculine cards. And it’s going to be carried over to the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog! Yay!! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the image of the father and daughter from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I used this image as it reminds me of my son and granddaughter. I colored the image with Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Flirty Flamingo, Smoky Slate and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I adhered the stamped and colored image to a Basic Black mat.

I adhered a panel of the In Good Taste designer series paper from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog that will be available on June 3 to a Basic Black mat and adhered it to a Gray Granite card base with dimensionals. I cut a panel of Sahara Sand card stock with the Stitched Rectangle die and ran it through the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder. I adhered it to the card base with liquid glue.

I adhered the layered art panel on the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Sahara Sand and cut it out with the smallest Layering Circle Die. I used the smallest stitched shape die to cut another circle from Basic Black ink and adhered the sentiment to it. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and liquid glue under the art panel. I finished card front with three Designer Elements.

I decorated the inside by stamping the heart from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man stamp set in the upper corner of a Whisper White panel and trimming the bottom with a strip of the In Good Taste DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

The Stampin’ Up! A Good Man is great set for creating masculine cards for any occasion. It is a must have for stampers with lots of men in your families.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Sneak Peek

Good Morning! Today I am sharing another sneak peek of the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers stamp bundle from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog which will be available on June 3. This card is inspired by a tote bag that I have with a teal background and lots of sunflowers. I have wanted to create it since I first saw this stamp set. 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 stamping 9 of the little sunflowers from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set using Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored each flower with Stampin’ Blends. I used Soft Suede for the centers, using the dark in the dotted areas first and then coloring the whole center with the light Soft Suede Blend. I colored the leaves with the Dark Old Olive Stampin blend and the Petals with the Mango Melody Blends. For the Petals, I started with the Light blend on each petal tip and used the dark Mango Melody blend to brush from the center outward, focusing on the petal shade lines. After they were colored, I cut them out with the coordinating die from the Sunflowers Dies.

I embossed a panel of Pretty Peacock card stock with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder and arranged the flowers on the panel, going over the edges for some flowers. I saved a flower for the inside, and cut some of the other flowers so that they would fill up the space. Once I was satisfied with the arrangement, I adhered the flowers with dimensionals. I trimmed any flowers that overlapped the edge of the embossed panel so that it was even with the panel edge. I adhered the decorated, embossed panel to an Early Espresso mat with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the matted panel to a Pretty Peacock card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers cling stamp set with VersaMark Ink on a strip of Early Espresso card stock. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set it until shiny. I trimmed the end and adhered it to the front with multipurpose liquid glue. I finished off the front by adding the Pretty Peacock rhinestones between the flowers.

I adhered the last die cut sunflower to the top corner of a Whisper White panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

The Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers is one of many amazing new sets in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. It will be available for ordering on June 3 – that’s just a week away! I can’t wait!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Happy Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I have sweet, pastel birthday card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style bundle along with other products from the Ornate Garden suite. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a Whisper White panel with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder and adhered it to another Whisper White panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the embossed layered panel to a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals. I cut out the second largest fancy frame from the Ornate Layers Dies from a Whisper White panel. I colored a length of Whisper White crinkle ribbon with the Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend and tied it around the panel and tied a bow to the side. I adhered the panel to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the large floral bouquet from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style cling stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored it with the Light Stampin’ Blends – Old Olive, So Saffron, Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo and Ivory. I fussy cut it out and brushed the flowers with Wink of Stella to give it some sparkle. I adhered the flowers to the panel with dimensionals.

I stamped the happy birthday sentiment from the Timeless Tulips photopolymer stamp set in Flirty Flamingo ink on a strip of Whisper White and cut it out with the long skinny die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I finished off the card front with 3 small faux pearls.

For the inside, I stamped the two small flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored them with the Light So Saffron, Pool Party and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends like the flowers on the card front. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

The Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite is so pretty and so versatile and it’s been great to be able to purchase the products as an early release before the rest of the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog! It’s been very popular, selling out early, but all the stamps and dies are back in stock. Check them out in my Online Store. And don’t forget that the rest of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog products will be available on June 3! I can’t wait – it’s a great catalog!

Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Congratulations Card

Good Morning! Today I have a congratulations card made with the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home bundle. This is a versatile set with great nautical images and die cuts that really make you smell the ocean air. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of Balmy Blue card stock with the Subtle 3D embossing folder and adhered a strip of Come Sail Away designer series paper to the middle. I adhered it o a Balmy Blue card base.

I stamped the small sailboat from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home cling stamp set twice in Night of Navy ink on Sahara Sand card stock and cut it out with the second largest Stitched Nested Label Dies. I made a knot with the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand baker’s twine and wrapped it around the panel, securing it in the back. I adhered the pane to the middle of the card with dimensionals.


I stamped the large sailboat from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home cling stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a Whisper White panel and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Smooth Sailing Dies. I adhered the sailboat to the panel with dimensionals. I stamped the Congrats sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home cling stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a Sahara Sand panel and cut it out with the little banner label die from the Smooth Sailing Dies. I adhered it to the panel with multipurpose liquid glue and dimensionals.

I stamped the wonderful sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home cling stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a Whisper White panel and the small sailboat in Sahara Sand next to it. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Come Sail Away DSP and adhered it to the inside of the card.

Nautical themed cards are great for masculine cards and the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home bundle is the best. And I’m glad that both the Sailing Home cling stamp set and Smooth Sailing Dies will be carrying over into the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, however they will no longer be sold as a bundle with the 10% discount. So if you are considering getting both with the discount, head over to my Online Store to buy the bundle while it’s still available.
