Stampin’ Up! Approaching Perfection for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I used the Stampin’ Up! Approaching Perfection Sale A Bration stamp set with the Sale A Bration Field & Flower designer series paper to make a cute birthday card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

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

I adhered a panel of the So Saffron Subtles 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of a So Saffron card base. I used the Detailed Trio punch to round the corners of a Just Jade panel and adhered a panel of Flower & Field designer series paper cut from the Stitched Rectangle Dies to the center. I popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Approaching Perfection cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Just Jade panel and cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle Die. I adhered it to the floral panel with glue dots. I stamped the small daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Bumblebee ink three times on a white panel. I cut them out with the medium daisy punch and adhered them together with liquid glue.

I used the small flower center die from the Wreath Builder Dies to cut a Just Jade circle. I embossed it with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and covered it with shimmery crystal effects for sparkle and shine and let it dry. I adhered it to the flower center with a dimensional and adhered the flower to the card front with dimensionals. I added a Bumblebee gingham bow and a Rococo Rose butterfly gem to finish the card.

I stamped the sentiment and balloons from the Stampin’ Up! Approaching Perfection stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a white panel and colored the balloons with the Real Red and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends. I added a strip of Flowers & Field DSP to the bottom before adhering it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Approaching Perfection stamp set has fun, witty birthday sentiments that make it a wonderful Sale A Bration selection. It is FREE with a $50 purchase (before shipping and taxes). And the Field & Flowers designer series paper is another pretty Sale A Bration option. Sale A Bration is going on now and runs through February 28.

Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Sale A Bration is just around the corner, starting on January 5, 2021 and I have a sneak peek of a fabulous item that you can get. It’s the Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings stamp set and Berry Delightful designer series paper. This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon and I use both items to make it. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.

I started by embossing a panel of Night of Navy with the Subtle 3D embossing folder and adhering it to a Night of Navy card base. It’s too bad the the additional texture isn’t very visible in the photos, because this embossing folder adds beautiful striations to the front that contrast with the white lacy edge. I adhered a Whisper White panel to the back of the Berry Delightful designer series paper and adhered two strips of Whisper White that were cut with the Ornate Borders lacy die. I popped the panel on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the blueberries using stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings photopolymer stamp set on the Thick Whisper White panel. I stamped the leaves first, the outline in Shaded Spruce and the fill in Granny Apple Green. I stamped the blueberries in Night of Navy for the outline and Pacific Point for the filler. It’s fairly easy to position the filler stamps over the darker stamped outline images. I cut the image out with the large Octagon frame from the Hippo and Friends Dies and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I added a Night of Navy bow with glue dots and three rhinestone gems to finish the card front.

I stamped the filler leaves and blueberries from the Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings stamp set in Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point in the corners of a Whisper White panel after stamping off. The soft look without the outline images is a nice contrast and shows the versatility of this pretty stamp set. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings stamp set in Night of Navy and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings stamp set comes with the Berry Delightful designer series paper as a Sale A Bration item that is free with the purchase of $100 (before shipping and taxes) beginning on January 5, 2021. Sale A Bration is Stampin’ Up!’s biggest promotion of the year and runs through the end of February! You can see this pretty stamp set in the picture below with samples of the Berry Delightful DSP – note that the samples are 6″ x 6″ but the real DSP pack comes with 12 sheets of 12″ x 12″ double sided designer series paper!

I hope you consider this set as your Sale A Bration free item – I’m sure you won’t be disappointed!

Stampin’ Up! Fancy Phrases Count My Blessings Card

Good Morning! Today’s card uses the sentiments from the pretty Stampin’ Up! Fancy Phrases cling stamp set along with some upcoming Sale A Bration designer series paper and a butterfly from the new Fluttering Dies from the new Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog. Sale A Bration starts on January 5, 2021 and that’s when the pretty new Paper Blooms designer series paper will be available along with all the new products from the Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalog. You can find the currently available supplies used to create this card and the card stock cuts at the bottom of this post.

I adhered a panel of the new Sale A Bration Paper Blooms designer series paper to a Night of Navy mat with Stampin’ Seal. The Paper Blooms DSP will be FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale A Bration. I wrapped a length of Denim ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Fancy Phrases stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a Rococo Rose panel and cut it out with the die from the Tasteful Labels Dies. I also cut out the butterfly from the embossing die from the new Fluttering Dies from a Seaside Spray panel – isn’t it pretty!! These dies are from the new Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalog and will be available on Jan 5, 2021. I adhered the butterfly to the label with a glue dot and adhered the label to the DSP panel with dimensionals.

I made a bow with the Denim ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot and popped the panel on the front of a Rococo Rose card base with dimensionals. I finished the front with pink iridescent adhesive sequins.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Fancy Phrases stamp set in Rococo Rose ink on a Whisper White panel. I used the Confetti Flowers punch to punch some small flowers from the leftover scraps of Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray panels and used the Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend to color the centers. I adhered them to the card with liquid glue and trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Paper Blooms DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I didn’t even use the pretty floral images from the Stampin’ Up! Fancy Phrases stamp set – that will have to wait for another time. But I love this sentiment to send to a special friend, so I chose it to go with the pretty embossed butterfly and the simple floral DSP. I can’t wait for January 5!
