Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I have another sneak peek from the new Stampin’ Up! January – June 2020 Mini Catalog. The Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress bundle has some cute girly images – flowers, lipstick, heels and a purse – along with some witty sentiments. And the coordinating All Dressed Up dies make a cute little purse that holds 3 x 3 cards. It is so cute!! 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 one of the floral images in Lovely Lipstick ink randomly along the bottom and sides of a Lovely Lipstick card base. Using the Stitched Rectangle die, I cut a panel of one of the floral papers in the Best Dressed DSP pack. I cut the large label from the Stitched Labels dies from vellum card stock and adhered it to the floral panel, applying the liquid glue under the circle and label. I cut a circle from Garden Green card stock using the large circle die from the Stitched Labels dies.

I stamped two shoes from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress photopolymer stamp set in Lovely lipstick on a panel of Whisper White and colored it with Light Cherry Cobbler and Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. I cut them out with the coordinating shoe die from the All Dressed Up dies and adhered them to the Garden Green circle along with 3 Lovely Lipstick enamel dots. I adhered the decorated circle to the vellum with dimensionals. I wrapped a length of Whisper White Baker’s twine around the panel and made a bow.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress stamp set in Lovely Lipstick on a strip of Whisper White and cut it out with the label die from the All Dressed Up dies. I stamped a flower on Whisper White and colored it with Light Cherry Cobbler, Light Flirty Flamingo, Light Shaded Spruce and Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out with the coordinating die and adhered it to the label with liquid glue. I adhered the label to the floral panel with dimensionals and the floral panel to the stamped Lovely Lipstick card base with dimensionals as well.

I decorated the inside by stamping the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Perennial Birthday stamp set in Lovely Lipstick on a Whisper White panel. I cut a strip of the Best Dressed DSP that was previously cut with the stitched rectangle dies and stuck it on the bottom of the panel before adhering it to the inside of the card. The Stitched Rectangle dies have stitching on both the inside and outside, so why not take advantage of this decorative element?

I love the way the vellum label adds a little something to the card front without obscuring the pretty paper. And I love all the cute elements in this bundle and can’t wait to make a purse! Because … actually I’m more of a purse girl than a shoe girl – but I know a lot of ladies who can’t resist another pretty pair of shoes! How about you?

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Hello Sneak Peek

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a video that I did yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. At Stampin’ Up! On Stage a couple of weeks ago, we made a pretty card with the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips bundle that will be available in the new January – June Mini Catalog next month. But my card did not come out very well because I stamped the stems of the tulips before the flowers, so I ended up with a mess. So this project’s purpose is to fix my card. And my card came out much better than the initial one I made at Stampin’ Up! On Stage.

Here’s the Facebook Live video:

I also posted the video to my YouTube channel and you can view it here.

I started by stamping the large tulip 3 times in Rococo Rose on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock. Then I stamped the medium tulip 3 times across a Whisper White panel with the bottoms of the flowers about 1/3 the way down from the top. I then stamped the stems for the flowers in Pear Pizzazz. I stamped the last 3 stems for the large tulips, positioning them so that they large tulips would have room on top of the stems. I stamped some leaves to fill in the bottom of the card. Finally, I stamped two leaves in Pear Pizzazz on a scrap piece of Whisper White to be punched out later. I tied linen thread in a bow around the panel and adhered the large tulips and extra leaves with dimensionals. I stamped the hello sentiment on a panel of whisper white and cut it out with paper snips. I adhered the sentiment to the panel with dimensionals and the panel to a Pear Pizzazz card base with dimensionals as well. I finished off the card front with 3 adhesive sequins.

For the inside, I stamped a tulip, stem and leaf on a Whisper White panel and adhered it to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

Here’s the card I originally made at Stampin’ Up! On Stage. At least the flowers are attached to stems, but they cover each other up and they’re all clumped in the middle, leaving too much white space on the sides. And What’s up with those leaves? Oh Well!! I’m going to make this bad picture small so it’s harder to see.

This one’s much better.

The Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Bundle will be available on January 3 when the new January – June Mini Catalog comes out. It comes with the Timeless Tulips photopolymer stamp set and the Tulip Builder punch. And it has lots of pretty sentiments to celebrate a variety of occasions.
