Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed Anniversary Card

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Today I am all about Anniversaries! Today is the 1 year anniversary of my first blog post and I have a masculine anniversary card made with the Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed cling stamp set for my DH to celebrate our 44th anniversary this weekend. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The layout for today’s card was inspired by the wonderful sketch at Fab Friday 185. Here is their sketch:

I stamped the tie from the Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed Sale-A-Bration cling stamp set on a panel of Whisper white in Night of Navy ink. Next to it, I stamped the wing tip shoe in Early Espresso ink and the fountain pen in Garden Green ink. Whew, good thing that the background plaid had green so I could add a touch of green for St. Patrick’s Day! I adhered the panel to a Night of Navy mat. I stamped the fedora hat in Soft Suede ink on a scrap of Crumb Cake card stock and fussy cut it out with my paper snips. Then I adhered it to stamped square with multipurpose liquid glue.

I cut a panel of the wood grained paper from the Pressed Petals specialty designer series paper and adhered it to a Soft Suede mat. I adhered the stamped panel on top with dimensionals. I tied a length of denim ribbon and adhered it to the side with glue dots. I stamped the Happy Anniversary label with stamps from the Well Said cling stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a Whisper White panel. I adhered it to a Soft Suede mat. I adhered the label to the panel with dimensionals under the bottom edge and multipurpose liquid glue under the top. I finished off the panel with a gold metallic pearl tie tack!

I adhered a panel of the blue plaid Country Club designer series paper to a Night of Navy card base. I adhered the decorated art panel to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Well Said stamp set in Night of Navy on a Whisper White panel. I stamped another fountain pen from the Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed stamp set in Garden Green ink and trimmed the bottom with more of the Country Club DSP. I adhered it to the inside of the card with snail.

The Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed cling stamp set is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set that is FREE with a $50 purchase. It is part of the Sale-A-Bration Second Release and will be available through the end of the month or until supplies last.

I don’t think we’ll be doing anything special this weekend for our anniversary, but at least he’ll get a nice handmade card!

As for my blog, in the past year, I have really enjoyed myself. I managed to write 168 blog posts and I finally hit 200 followers. I am so grateful for all of my supporters! On to year 2!

Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You With Flowering Foils Card

Good Morning! Today I have a simple but elegant birthday card made with Sale-A-Bration items – the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday to You cling stamp set and the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils specialty designer series paper. 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 beautiful Stampin’ Up! Floral Foils specialty designer series paper and adhered it to a panel of copper foil. The Stampin’ Up Flowering Foils specialty designer series paper has rose gold and silver foil designs on a white background and is FREE with a $50 purchase. I then adhered the panel to a thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday to You Sale-A-Bration stamp set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Whisper White. I sprinkled it with copper embossing powder and heat set. I adhered it to a strip of copper foil and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front off with a length of polka dot tulle ribbon.

The inside is also pretty simple. I just adhered a strip of the Stampin’ Up Flowering Foils specialty designer series paper to the bottom of a whisper white panel and adhered it to a copper foil mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

A designer series paper with foil really steps up the card making game. The touch of shine makes it so elegant and beautiful with little effort. Using the copper foil as a mat along with the copper embossing powder ties it all together and it is an excellent match with the rose gold in the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils specialty designer series paper. And don’t forget that both the stamp set and the designer series paper are each Sale-A-Bration items that you can get for FREE with a $50 purchase.

Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms Thank You Card

Good Morning! Today I have thank you card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Small Bloom punch. Both of these items are Sale-A-Bration items that are FREE with a qualifying purchase. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

This card was inspired by the color palette in the Fab Friday #184 Challenge. Check out the inspiration cards and other challenge entries:

I started with a panel of Pretty Peacock Woven Heirlooms designer series paper and adhering it to a Pretty Peacock mat. I adhered the panel to a Mint Macaron card base with dimensionals. I stamped four flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms stamp set using Rococo Rose ink on a panel of Petal Pink card stock. I punched them out with the Small Bloom punch.

I stamped the large leafy swirl from the Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Mint Macaron on a panel of Thick Whisper White card stock. I cut it out with the second largest Stitched So Sweetly die. I stamped the small flowers in Rococo Rose ink and the thank you sentiment in Mint Macaron ink. I wrapped it in Mint Macaron twine and made a bow. I adhered Rococo Rose faceted gems to the Petal Pink flowers and adhered them to the panel with dimensionals. I finished it off with a Pretty Peacock faceted gem and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I decorated the inside by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Mint Macaron ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped part of the large swirl in the upper right corner, also using Mint Macaron ink and added two Rococo Rose small flowers. I stamped the center of the last punched flower with Rococo Rose and adhered it to the panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Woven Threads DSP and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up Thoughtful Blooms stamp set is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set that is FREE with a $50 purchase. The Small Blooms punch coordinates with the stamps and is also a Sale-A-Bration item that is FREE with a $100 purchase.

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad Happy For You Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For my card today, I’ve used a lot of Sale-A-Bration Products, including the Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad stamp set, Lily Pad Dies and the Lily Impressions designer series paper.

We have a color challenge this week, and here is the bold and beautiful color palette I am using for my card:

I started by adhering a panel of the Sale-A-Bration Lily Impressions designer series paper on a Bermuda Bay Card base with snail. I cut the large label from the Stitched Label Dies in Bermuda Bay card stock. I cut two large outline lilies and one small outline lily from the Sale-A-Bration Lily Pad Dies in Lovely Lipstick card stock. I cut two medium solid flowers and one small flower from the Lily Pad Dies in Petal Pink Vellum. I cut two large leaf clusters and one small leaf cluster from the Lily Pad Dies in Granny Apple Green card stock. I trimmed the stems from the large leaf clusters.

I stamped the large lily pad from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad Sale-A-Bration stamp set in Granny Apple Green ink on Granny Apple Green card stock and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Lily Pad Dies. I adhered the lily pad to the large stitched label with multipurpose liquid glue. I made three flower clusters by layering the Lovely Lipstick outline flower on the Petal Pink vellum flower and topping it off with a leaf cluster. I adhered them together with multipurpose liquid glue, being careful to keep the glue behind the cardstock. I accented each flower with a Lovely Lipstick enamel dot and adhered them to the label with dimensionals. Again, I was careful to place the dimensionals behind the cardstock, and ended up cutting small, skinny pieces. I adhered the label to the card base with dimensionals.

I cut the decorative die cut strip from the Lily Pad Dies in Bermuda Bay card stock. I trimmed it to 4″ and adhered it to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the A Little Lace stamp set in Versamark Ink on Lovely Lipstick and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I heat set the sentiment and cut it out with the die from the Stitched Label Dies. I adhered it to the card base over the decorative strip with dimensionals. I finished it off with a Lovely Lipstick enamel dot.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the small lily bud from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad stamp set in Lovely Lipstick ink, after stamping off twice, on the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the small leaf cluster under it in Granny Apple Green ink after stamping off once. I added a strip of the Lily Impressions designer series paper and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad photopolymer stamp set and Lily Impressions designer series paper are FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. The Lily Pad Dies are FREE with a $100 purchase.

Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I have a masculine birthday card made with the new Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed cling stamp set. This stamp set is one of the new Sale-A-Bration second release products that is FREE with a $50 order and it is available starting today! 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 Sahara Sand panel with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. I adhered it to a Basic Gray card base with Snail. I adhered a panel of the gray argyle paper from the Country Club designer series paper to a Basic Black mat and then adhered them both to the embossed panel.

I stamped the fedora from the Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored it with the Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut the hat with my paper snips. I stamped the umbrella from the Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel and fussy cut it with my paper snips.

I stamped the sentiment from the Perennial Birthday stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White Panel. I cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to the argyle paper with snail. I adhered the fedora and umbrella with dimensionals. I finished the card front with a silver metallic pearl.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Perennial Birthday stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the keys from the Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed stamp set next to the sentiment and trimmed the bottom with the Country Club argyle designer series paper before adhering the panel to the inside of the card.

Masculine cards are so hard, yet so essential!! I hope you have a gentleman in your life who would fit the dapper images in this new Sale-A-Bration stamp set. And be sure to head to my online store to check out the new Sale-A-Bration products that are available until the end of the month or while supplies last.
