Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Hello Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a sweet hello card that I made yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session using the new Early Release Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style stamp set and other items 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.

Here’s the Facebook Live video showing how to make the card:

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

Emboss a panel of So Saffron card stock with the Ornate Floral embossing folder and adhere it to the front of a So Saffron card base. Adhere a panel of Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper to a Mint Macaron mat and adhere it to the card front with dimensionals.

Cut out the three flowers from So Saffron card stock using the flowers from the Ornate Border Dies. Using the large ball stylus from the Take Your Pick tool, Curl the petals upward on each cluster with a circular motion on a soft mat or mousepad. Adhere the petal clusters together with glue dots, offsetting the petals as much as you can. Add a yellow rhinestone to the center. Stamp the hello greeting from the Timeless Tropical stamp set with Early Espresso ink on a scrap of Whisper White and cut it out with a Stitched Nested Label Die. Adhere the label to the card with dimensionals and adhere the flower and a Mint Macaron bow to the label with glue dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the large flower bouquet from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel using So Saffron ink after stamping off twice. Add a strip of the Ornate Floral DSP to the bottom and adhere it to the inside of the card.

The Ornate Garden Suite is so pretty and versatile. The Inkin’ Krew Team is having an Ornate Garden Facebook event on April 18 to celebrate! Contact me if you are interested.

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden with Love What You Do

Good Morning! Today I have a thank you card made with several products from the new Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite paired with the thank you sentiment from the Love What You Do photopolymer 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.

Emboss a panel of Whisper White with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and adhere the panel of the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper to the right side. Cut a strip of Old Olive card stock with the skinny eyelet border from the Ornate Borders Dies and adhere it to the seam with liquid glue. Adhere the layered embossed panel to an Old Olive mat with liquid glue and pop it on a Rococo Rose card base with dimensionals.

Cut a panel of Old Olive card stock with the large fancy label from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. Stamp the thank you sentiment from the Love What You Do photopolymer stamp set in Rococo Rose ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the floral cluster from the Ornate Style cling stamp set in Old Olive ink a couple of times after stamping off twice. Cut out the sentiment with the die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies and adhere it to the larger Old Olive die cut label with liquid glue. Adhere the label to the card with dimensionals.

Cut out the two smallest flower dies from the Ornate Borders Dies using Blushing Bride card stock. Adhere the smaller flower on top of the larger flower with liquid glue, offsetting the petals to fill in the gaps. Add a Rococo Rose faceted gem to the center. Cut a leaf cluster out of Old Olive with the Leaf Punch. Adhere the leaf cluster to the label with a glue dot. Adhere the flower on top with a dimensional. Make a bow with the Whisper White crinkle ribbon and tuck it under the flower with a glue dot.

On a Whisper White panel, stamp the little flower from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso ink. Color it with the light Rococo Rose and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. Trim the bottom of the panel with a strip of the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper and adhere the panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

Stampin’ Up! Bloom and Grow for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Sale-a-Bration is over, but it’s April and so we have an early release of the Ornate Garden Suite from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog! I have uses some of the dies from the Ornate Layers Dies along with the Stampin’ Up! Bloom and Grow photopolymer stamp bundle to create today’s card.

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

Stamp the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Bloom and Grow stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. Color the flowers with the Real Red, Light Old Olive, Light Soft Suede and Light Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends. Cut the flowers out with the coordinating die from the Budding Blooms Dies and brush the flower petals with clear Wink of Stella to add some sparkle.

Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Bloom and Grow stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Old Olive and cut it out with the die from the Ornate Layers Dies. This sentiment fits perfectly in the new die! Cut the lacy background die from Whisper White and adhered it to the label with liquid glue. Stamp two berry sprigs in Memento Tuxedo Black and color them with Light Old Olive and Light Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends. Cut them out with the coordinating die.

Emboss the Soft Suede panel with the Corrugated embossing folder. This embossing folder will shrink the paper, so the cut is about 1/4″ longer than needed. After embossing, measure and trim to 4″ x 5-1/4″ and adhere it to a Soft Suede card base with liquid glue. Adhere the berry sprigs with liquid glue and the label and flowers with dimensionals. Finish the card front with a Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon bow and three red rhinestone jewels.

Stamp the flowers along the side of a Whisper White panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and color it to match the front. Adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and then to the inside of the card with liquid glue. Here is another picture of the front where you can see a bit of the Wink of Stella sparkle.

The flowers and dies in the Stampin’ Up! Bloom and Grow bundle are some of my favorites in this year’s annual catalog, so I’m really glad to be able to pair it with the new Ornate Layers Dies.

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style You’re Amazing Card

Good Morning! Today I have a sneak peek card made with the Stampin’ Up Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks stamp bundles. These bundles are part of the Ornate Garden Suite which are going to be in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, but are being be released early. 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 cut a panel of the pretty yellow background Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper and adhered it to the bottom of a Terracotta Tile card base. I used the little circle border die from the Ornate Borders Dies to cut the bottom of a panel of Old Olive card stock and then ran it through the Ornate Floral embossing folder. I adhered it to the top of the card base, overlapping the floral DSP. I tied a length of Terracotta Tile ribbon around the card front and tied a faux bow just above the die cut border.

I stamped the you’re amazing sentiment from the Ornate Thanks photopolymer stamp set on a strip of Old Olive card stock using Old Olive ink. I cut it out with small long Stitched Rectangles dies. I cut the small frame from the Ornate Layers Dies from Terracotta Tile card stock.

I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a small Whisper White panel. I colored it with the Dark So Saffron, Light Calypso Coral and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I adhered the flower to the Terracotta Tile frame and accented it with a Terracotta Tile faceted dot. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I finally centered the Old Olive die cut label on the bottom of the card front.

The inside of the card is pretty simple – I trimmed a Whisper White panel with the yellow and Terracotta Tile floral paper from the Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper pack and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite is really pretty with gorgeous die cut borders and frames, pretty floral images and sweet thank you sentiments for every occasion. The items in the suite are currently available to Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators during the pre-order period and will be available to everyone beginning April 1! That’s next week. Click on the image below to open a PDF file to see all of the items in the suite.

And note that if you are interested in joining Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator now, you can add items from the suite to your starter kit. Contact me if you have any questions.
