Stampin’ Up! Four Season Floral Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I have a sweet birthday card made with the Stampin’ Up! Four Seasons Floral photopolymer stamp set. This sweet little stamp set is in the Stampin’ Up! Beginner’s Brochure and in the Beginner’s Brochure section of my Online Store. In addition to this new stamp set, I played with most of the new 2020-2022 In Colors – So much fun!!😊 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 Magenta Madness panel with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base. I cut a panel of the pretty Flowers for Every Season 6×6 designer series paper with the Rectangle Stitched Die and adhered it to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Four Season Floral stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored the flower with the Magenta Madness, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends. I cut a Misty Moonlight panel with a scalloped rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered the flower to the die cut panel. I popped the panel on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Four Season Floral stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a strip of Whisper White card stock. I punched the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. I punched the ends of a strip of Misty Moonlight and adhered it to the label with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and liquid glue. I finished off the card with three Misty Moonlight enamel dots and a bow made with the pretty Misty Moonlight and silver baker’s twine.

I decorated the inside by adhering a strip of the Flowers for Every Season DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to a Magenta Madness mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Four Season Floral is a sweet little stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! Beginner Brochure that is great for all levels of stampers. There is a nice little beginning stamper collection, The Four Season Floral Cards Collection, with everything you need to start to your card making hobby and the images and sentiments also coordinate with other items in the Flowers for Every Season suite.

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to the first Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop with the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog! My card uses the new Stampin’ Up! Many Mates bundle with the returning To A Wild Rose stamp set and Wild Roses Dies.

We have a wonderful retro color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using. And it includes one of the new 2020-2022 In Colors – Bumblebee!

So of course my card base is Bumblebee and I cut a panel of the Bumblebee paper from the Flowers For Every Season 6×6 designer series paper pack and adhered it to the front of the card base. Then I cut a panel of Early Espresso with the wonderful background die from the Many Medallions Dies and adhered it to the card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the sweet Thinking of You sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates cling stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel and cut it out with a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I stamped the rose from the To A Wild Rose photopolymer stamp set in Crushed Curry ink on So Saffron card stock and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Wild Roses Dies. I stamped two of the leaves with Old Olive ink on Old Olive card stock and cut them out with the coordinating die.

I arranged the die cuts on the card front and adhered the leaves and label with multipurpose liquid glue. I popped the flower with dimensionals and decorated the center with Cinnamon Cider enamel dots. I made a bow with the Bumblebee 1/4″ twill ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot.

For the inside, I stamped two roses from the To A Wild Rose stamp set in So Saffron ink (after stamping off twice) in the corners of a Whisper White panel. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Flowers For Every Season DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

It was so much fun to play with the new Stampin’ Up! Many Mates stamp set and Many Medallions Dies! New Catalog = New Toys! Yay!!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Friendship Card

Good Morning! Today is the big day with the opening of the Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!! Yay!! To celebrate, I made a pretty friendship card with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern bundle! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used – and everything is available today!!!

I embossed a panel of Pear Pizzazz card stock with one of the Greenery embossing folders and adhered it to a panel of Forever Greenery designer series paper. I adhered both to the front of a Garden Green card base. I cut out a leafy branch from vellum using the medium die from the Forever Flourishing Dies. I stamped two small leaf clusters from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern cling stamp set in Old Olive ink on Old Olive card stock and cut them out with the coordinating die from the Forever Flourishing Dies.

I added a gold leaf branch from the Forever Gold Laser cut specialty paper and made a leafy arrangement on the embossed panel, adhering them with mini glue dots. I wrapped some gold thread in circles and also adhered it with mini glue dots.

I stamped the pretty sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set in Garden Green ink on a Whisper White panel and cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle Die. I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to make a scalloped mat for the label using the two step die cutting method. I adhered the label to the mat with liquid glue and adhered the layered label to the card front with dimensionals. I finished off the card front with three gilded gems.

I decorated the inside by …

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! Lovely You Thank You Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Can you believe that it’s June!! Today I’m sharing a sneak peek of the fun Stampin’ Up! Lovely You bundle on a Thank You card that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. The Stampin’ Up! Lovely You bundle will be available this Wednesday, June 3 when the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog goes live – YAY!!! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post (though some items will be available after June 3, 2020) along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it here if you prefer.

I started by stamping the the flowers and leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You cling stamp set on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the big flower in Balmy Blue three times, the small buds in So Saffron three times and the leaf cluster in Soft Sea Foam three times. I stamped the long leaf branch in Granny Apple Green twice over the So Saffron Leaves and finished by stamping the 5 petal flower in Melon Mambo three times. I adhered the stamped panel to a Melon Mambo mat and wrapped it in Whisper White Bakers twine twice before tying a bow.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You stamp set in Balmy Blue ink on a strip of Whisper White card stock. I trimmed the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. I trimmed the ends of a strip of Balmy Blue card stock with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch and adhered the stamped label on top with dimensionals. I used dimensionals to adhere the label over the twine on the stamped panel. I adhered the layered, stamped panel to a Balmy Blue card base with dimensionals.

I finished the card front with a Melon Mambo butterfly that was die cut using the Nature’s Thoughts butterfly die.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flowers and leaves in the same colors as the front on the lower left corner of a Whisper White card stock panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Lovely You bundle has sweet sentiments and great solid image floral stamps, so great that it made the cover of the new catalog! And the punch is definitely a must have! You can get yours when the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog goes live on June 3. Two more days – I can’t wait!! 😊
