Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents Kind People Card

Good Morning! Today I have a card made with the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents bundle. The front panel is designed to be just a little short so that the inside of the card peeks out the side. And the sentiment is a sweet one that can be used as a general note card, thank you card or just a friendship card – an all occasion card! 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 the front and side panels of the Rococo Rose Oh So Ombre Sale A Bration 6″ x 6″ designer series paper with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. I adhered the large panel to the front of the Rococo Rose card base and the small panel to the right side of the inside of the card. I stamped the large succulent image from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents cling stamp set in Garden Green on a Basic White panel. I colored it with Mossy Meadow, Granny Apple Green, Mint Macaron, Rococo Rose and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and cut it out with the coordinating die. I cut out another panel from Basic White and adhered it to the back since some of the back will show when the card is open and you don’t want to see the messy back.

I stamped the pot in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel and colored it with Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends and the Color Lifter, using a blending technique to give it a nice highlight. I stamped the sweet sentiment in Old Olive ink on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. The sentiment dies in this bundle are fabulous!

I adhered the label to the card front and then adhered the pot on top of it. I popped the succulents on top with dimensionals. I brushed clear Wink of Stella over the succulents to give them a subtle sparkle and added three Rococo Rose Butterfly Gems to finish the front.

For the inside panel, I cut the right edge of the Basic White panel with the Peony Dies scalloped edge and adhered it to the inside of the card overlapping the embossed DSP. I stamped the little succulent from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents stamp set in Garden Green on a small Basic White panel and colored it with the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. I adhered it to the bottom inside corner.

This large succulent stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents is stunning and easily fills up a card front. It’s versatile and looks beautiful with any artistic technique.

Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings Birthday Card

Good Morning and welcome to Simple Stampin’ Saturday! There are so many beautiful designer series papers in the current catalogs and one of the quickest ways to make a card is to make the DSP the focal point of your card. Simply cut it down to size, add a label with a few embellishments and presto! you have a beautiful card. Here’s today’s card to show you how. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings DSP to a Basic White mat. I adhere it to a mat to give it a little stiffness before popping it onto a Blackberry Bliss card base with dimensionals. Using dimensionals to pop the panel off the card base makes it a little more elegant and special. But wait! Before adhering it to the card base, Wrap a length of Blackberry Bliss ribbon around it and secure it in the back. Then apply your dimensionals and adhere it to the card base.

The next element is your label. Once you determine what sentiment you want to use, find a die or a punch that fits the sentiment. Stamp the sentiment and cut or punch it out. For my card, I wanted it to be a Birthday card, so I used the sentiment from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set and stamped it in Blackberry Bliss ink on Basic White. I cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly dies. To make a really nice label, make it a double layer with a contrasting card stock like the Blackberry Bliss die cut I used here. Choose a punch or die that is slightly larger than your label. There are lots of punches and dies that give you options for layering your label. And if nothing fits your sentiment, simply cut rectangles with your paper cutter and layer them. And again, for extra elegance, pop it on your pretty designer series paper with dimensionals!

For the final touch, add some embellishments! I used Purple Posy resin dots for my card, but you can use anything you have in your stash – rhinestones, pearls, sequins – that looks pretty with your designer series paper. Try to use odd numbers – that seems to be a design rule.

Next is the inside of the card. If you have an inside sentiment, that’s great use it. Sometimes you want to leave the inside without a sentiment so you have plenty of room to write a message, and that’s ok. If you have stamps that match your designer series paper, go ahead and use them. For my card, I used the sentiment and blackberry stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings stamp set. I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss and the berries and leaves in Rich Razzleberry (after stamping off twice for a softer look) and Granny Apple Green on a Basic White panel. If you don’t have coordinating stamps, add a strip of the designer series paper to the bottom (like I did), or the side, or cut out one of the motifs from the designer series paper and adhere it to your inside panel. Then adhere the inside panel to the inside of your card.

I don’t usually decorate my envelopes, but many stampers insist it’s a must have. If you have stamps that coordinate with your designer series paper, you can stamp on the envelope like I did. If you don’t, you can easily add a panel of your pretty designer series paper to the flap. Apply liquid glue to the outside edge of the envelope, adhere the DSP and cut the excess using the envelope flap as a guide. Or if you happen to have a die to cut out an envelope liner, that’s a fabulous way to make a special matching envelope!

I hope you like my simple card featuring the Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings stamp set and designer series paper. And I hope you decide to use up your beautiful designer series paper on cards to share with those you love. Remember – beautiful DSP makes beautiful cards! So don’t be afraid to use it up!

And the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings stamp set and paper is a Sale A Bration item that you can get for FREE with a $100 order.

Stampin’ Up! Well Written Thank You Cards

Good Morning! Today I want to share a set of thank you cards using the Stampin’ Up! Well Written Dies with the Sale A Bration Flower & Field designer series paper. You can find the supplies at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I used the Basic White Note Cards and Envelopes as my card bases. These are nice, thick card bases that don’t need a liner and meet the minimum size requirement to be mailed by the US Postal Service, so they are perfect for a quick thank you or for a little set of cards. They are pre-scored, so you just need to fold it and burnish the edge well with your bone folder.

I embossed a panel of Basic White with the Little Details embossing folder. I adhered the striped paper to the floral paper from the Flower & Field designer series paper and adhered them both to the bottom of the embossed panel. I adhered the panel to the front of the note card.

I adhered a strip of adhesive sheets to the back of a Basic White strip and cut out the thanks sentiment die from the Stampin’ Up! Well Written dies. I peeled the backing off and adhered the word to the floral designer series paper and finished off the card front with a Black Matte dot.

I love the Stampin’ Up! Well Written dies for making die cut words. The font is sweet and casual and there are words for lots of occasions. And I love the Little Details embossing folders with all the different stitches – it adds wonderful texture to the white background.
