Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad Get Well Card

Good Morning! Today I have a get well card made with the Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad photopolymer stamp set. This stamp set is FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order! Many of the products used in today’s card are Sale-A-Bration items and I will point them out as I mention them. You can find all 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 Lily Impressions designer series paper and adhered it to a Pretty Peacock mat with snail. The Lily Impressions designer series paper is another Sale-A-Bration item that is FREE with a $50 order and it’s so pretty! I stamped the large lily and two of the small lilies from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad stamp set in Petal Pink ink on a panel of shimmer white card stock. I used my aqua painter and Petal Pink ink to add color to the base of each petal, leaving the tips white. I did this by smooshing the ink pad to deposit ink on the lid (or you can smoosh it on an extra stamp block) and picked up the ink with the tip of the aqua painter brush and use it to color the image. The shimmer white paper is safe for water coloring, so I chose to use it instead of water color paper – plus you get the benefits of the sparkle!

After coloring the large lily and two small lilies, I cut them out with the Lily Pad dies. The Lily Pad Dies is another FREE Sale-A-Bration product with a $100 order. I stamped a large lily pad leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and two of the smaller leaves using Soft Sea Foam ink on Soft Sea Foam card stock. I cut the leaves out with the Lily Pad dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts stamp set – another Sale-A-Bration item that is available for FREE with a $50 order – using Pretty Peacock ink on a strip of vellum. Ink takes longer to dry on vellum, so I set it aside for a while. After it was dry, I wrapped it around the matted DSP panel and secured it in the back with snail.

I adhered the large lily pad leaf to the Lily Impressions panel with dimensionals and adhered the flower on top with dimensionals. I adhered a small lily leaf and flower with snail. I tied a short length of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle and tucked it under the flower with a glue dot. I made a bow with Grapefruit Grove Twine and tucked it on top of the tulle with a glue dot. I adhered the panel to a Pool Party card base with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Sending You Thoughts stamp set on a Whisper White panel using Pretty Peacock ink. I added the last small flower and leaf to the top corner and a strip of the Lily Impressions designer series paper to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with snail.

Sale-A-Bration is the best Stampin’ Up! promotion of the year and the items that are available this year are are incredible! The Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad stamp set is also special in that it is specially made to be reversible! You can flip the stamp over on the stamp pad and stamp the solid image on the reverse! Sale-A-Bration is going on now through March 31.

Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms Hello Card

Good Morning and Happy Friday! Today’s card is a cheerful hello card made with the Sale-A-Bration Thoughtful Blooms stamp set along with the Sale-A-Bration Small Bloom punch. 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 several of the large solid blooms from the Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms stamp set on strips of Whisper White card stock in Melon Mambo ink. The Thoughtful Blooms stamp set is available FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 purchase. I cut them out with the Small Bloom punch which is also a FREE Sale-A-Bration item with a $100 purchase.

I stamped the vines and leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms stamp set on a panel of Pool Party card stock using Granny Apple Green ink. I stamped the small solid flowers with Pacific Point ink. Then I used the bone folder and curled the petals on the Melon Mambo flowers back and adhered them on the stamped panel with glue dots. I added Pineapple Punch dots to the centers.

I embossed a panel of the Pool Party striped Peaceful Poppies designer series paper with the Layered Leaves embossing folder. I adhered the floral Pool Party panel to the top of a Whisper White mat and the embossed DSP to the bottom with snail. I tied a length of Whisper White crinkle seam binding around the middle and made a bow. I adhered the layered panel to a Pool Party card base with dimensionals. I stamped the hello sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Pacific Point ink on a strip of Pool Party. I added some small Melon Mambo flowers and a leaf sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms stamp set and cut it out with the small scalloped rectangle from the stitched so sweetly dies. I popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped a Melon Mambo flower with some Granny Apple Green leaves and vines and Pacific Point small flowers. I used my Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write marker to color the flower centers and finished it off with a strip of embossed Pool Party striped DSP. I adhered it to the inside of the card with snail.

The Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms stamp set is a sweet set with lots of different sized flowers and leaves. I only used the solid stamps, it has some great options for two-step stamping to produce multi colored flowers. It’s a great FREE Sale-A-Bration option at the $50 level.

Stampin’ Up! Stamp Honey Bee Thinking of You Card

Happy Friday! Today’s card is a Thinking of You card made with the pretty new Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee bundle. The Golden Honey specialty designer series paper that I used with it is available for FREE as a Sale-A-Bration item with a $50 purchase. Yay for Sale-A-Bration!! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I love the beehive stamp and die in the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee stamp bundle, so I had to make it a focal point in my card. I stamped it in Daffodil Delight ink on a Thick Whisper White panel and cut it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the large bee and three of the small bees in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Thick Whisper White and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I colored the bee stripes with the dark Daffodil Delight Stampin Blend.

I cut a panel of the Golden Honey specialty designer series paper with the flowers and bees and a strip of the black background honeycomb paper and adhered them together with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered them to a Basic Black card base. I popped the beehive on the card front with dimensionals and arranged the bees around the hive. I used dimensionals to adhere the bees to the background and multipurpose liquid glue on the bee that is on the beehive.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee stamp set on a strip of basic black using Versamark ink. I sprinkled gold embossing powder on it and heat set. I trimmed the label and adhered it to the card. I added some gold metallic pearls to the label and colored some regular pearls with the Basic Black Dark Stampin Blend and added them around the beehive.

I stamped another small bee in Memento Tuxedo black in the corner of a Whisper White panel, I colored it’s stripes with the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and added a strip of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee bundle is one of the new bundles in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. It consists of the Honey Bee cling stamp set and the Detailed Bee dies and is available with a 10% discount. The Golden Honey specialty designer series paper is in the Sale-A-Bration brochure and is available for FREE with a $50 purchase. It has designs that coordinate with the Honey Bee stamps and the bee in today’s card background can be cut out with one of the dies in the set!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Congratulations Card

Good Morning! I am sharing a card I made for a special lady who just got engaged. I made it with the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship photopolymer stamp set and used the Sale-A-Bration Sending You Thoughts cling stamp set for the sentiments. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The design for this card was inspired by the sketch in the Global Design Project 222 Sketch Challenge. Check it out along with the other entries in the challenge.

I started by cutting two panels of Woven Threads designer series paper and adhering them together with multipurpose liquid glue. I ran the DSP through the Scripty embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Seaside Spray card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the flowers on the main panel with the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship photopolymer stamp set. I used Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sea Foam inks on a Whisper White Panel. I brushed some clear Wink of Stella on the flowers to give them a touch of sparkle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Sending You Thoughts in Smoky Slate ink in the upper corner. I adhered the panel to a Rococo Rose mat and wrapped a length of Seaside Spray metallic ribbon around it, securing it in the back. I made a bow with the ribbon and adhered it to the front with glue dots and popped the panel on the card front with dimensionals. I finished off the floral panel with a Seaside Spray faceted gem.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the hydrangea flower from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship stamp set in the lower corner of a Whisper White panel in Seaside Spray ink. I added some Pear Pizzazz leaves and stamped the sentiment from the Sending You Thoughts stamp set in Smoky Slate ink. I added a strip of Woven Threads DSP that I embossed with the Scripty embossing folder to the bottom and adhered it to a Rococo Rose mat before adhering it to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue. I also stamped the hydrangeas and leaves on a Whisper White envelope to match.

These sentiments from the Sending You Thoughts stamp set are perfect for an engagement card. And the sentiments from this stamp set are great for a lot of celebrations. You can get the Sending You Thoughts stamp set for FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration.
