Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Here’s a country bouquet love you card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Two Tone Flora bundle and the Country Gingham 6″ x 6″ designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a sketch challenge in the Blog Hop and here is the pretty card sketch we are using this week:

I adhered a panel of Mint Macaron Country Gingham 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to a Basic White panel and popped the layered panel on the front of a Mint Macaron card base with dimensionals. I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora photopolymer stamp set using the two-step stamping method by stamping the detailed stamp first in full strength ink and the background stamp next in stamped off ink. I stamped the large rose using Sweet Sorbet ink, the small rose using Pale Papaya ink and the small flower cluster using Balmy Blue ink. I also stamped a second large rose for the inside of the card and cut them all out with the coordinating dies.

I stamped three leaf sprigs from the Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora stamp set in stamped off Shaded Spruce and cut them out with the coordinating die (I saved one for the inside). I stamped the sentiments from the Sentimental Park photopolymer stamp set in Mint Macaron on Basic White and cut it out with the pretty label die from the Potted Succulents dies. I arranged the die cuts on the card front and adhered the label and leaves with glue dots. I adhered the small rose with glue dots and the large rose with dimensionals. I colored the large rose with Wink of Stella to give it some sparkle.

Before adhering the small flower clusters, I made a triple bow with Sweet Sorbet baker’s twine and adhered it to the card with a glue dot. I adhered the small flower cluster with dimensionals and finished the card with several adhesive translucent pearl hearts.

For the inside of the card, I adhered the strip of Country Gingham 6″ x 6″ DSP to the bottom of a Basic White panel. I adhered the leaf sprig and large rose with liquid glue and trimmed the overhang with paper snips before adhering the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The flowers in the Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora bundle are really pretty and come out so well using the two step stamping method. I love that there are coordinating dies to cut them out and the background floral die is the best ever. It’s definitely one of my favorites!

Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Happy Thank You Card

Good Morning and Happy February! I wanted to make a vintage style card with the Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Happy Sale-A-Bration photopolymer stamp set and so I looked at cards from 10 to 15 years ago. Boy, was that fun seeing all the old favorite stamp sets and designer series papers! I decided to make it with layers of Regency Park 6″ x 6″ designer series paper and use a sponge dauber to distress the edges. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I used a sponge dauber to apply Crumb Cake ink around the edges of my panels of Regency Park 6″ x 6″ DSP. I picked a floral Petal Pink pattern for the front background and inside trim and a Petal Pink polka dot pattern for the vertical strip. I embossed the front background and inside trim papers with the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder and adhered the background panel to the front of a Soft Suede card base with liquid glue. I adhered the vertical strip to a Soft Suede mat and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the large floral bouquet from the Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Happy stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flowers in Petal Pink and the leaves in stamped off Mint Macaron. I stamped the spatter stamp around the flowers using stamped off Crumb Cake. I then used my sponge dauber to apply Crumb Cake ink around the bouquet. I adhered the panel to Soft Suede and Petal Pink mats and wrapped it twice with Crumb Cake baker’s twine and tied a bow. I colored the flowers with Wink of Stella to give them some sparkle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Happy stamp set in Early Espresso in Petal Pink and adhered it to a Soft Suede mat. I adhered the label over the baker’s twine with dimensionals and adhered the layered floral panel to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card with iridescent gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the little flower from the Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Happy stamp set in Crumb Cake ink in the lower corner of a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with the Regency Park 6″ x 6″ distressed and embossed DSP strip and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Happy Sale-A-Bration stamp set is a gorgeous two-step stamp set with pretty flowers and wonderful sentiments. It is one of the items that you can get for free with a $100 order (before shipping and taxes). It was fun to make a vintage style card and I didn’t use a single die!

Stampin’ Up! Fragrant Flowers Thank You Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Fragrant Flowers bundle is a pretty floral bundle with bold sentiments. The Sale-A-Bration Favored Flowers designer series paper coordinates perfectly with the bundle and some of the designs can even be cut out with the dies. I used them both for my card today, but instead of the beautiful bold sentiments, I used the Simply Succulent stamp set and coordinating Potted Succulent dies for my sentiments. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the big floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Fragrant Flowers stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the flowers with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends and the leaves with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and cut it out with the coordinating die. The coloring process was a little tedious, but I love the way it came out – it coordinates beautifully with the flowers in the DSP. I just took my time coloring it one petal at a time focusing on coloring the flower’s detail lines.

I adhered a panel of geometric Favored Flowers designer series paper to a Basic Black mat and then adhered it to a floral DSP panel with liquid glue. I adhered it all to a Basic Black mat and then adhered it to the front of a Petal Pink card base with liquid glue. I cut two large and one small leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Fragrant Flowers dies from Mossy Meadow and adhered them to the card with dots of liquid glue. I popped the stamped and die cut flowers on top with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Succulents cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Mossy Meadow and cut it out with the label die from the Potted Succulents dies (these label dies are so pretty!). I folded a length of Petal Pink ribbon and adhered it to the card front with glue dots and adhered the label on top with glue dots and dimensionals. I finished the card front with pastel iridescent gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Fragrant Flowers stamp set in Petal Pink in the corners of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Succulents stamp set (Isn’t this the best sentiment?) in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Favored Flowers DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Fragrant Flowers stamp set comes in both cling and photopolymer versions, so you can choose the version that you prefer (you can also get either version with the bundle). The Simply Succulents sentiments aren’t as bold as the ones in the new bundle, but I love these sentiments and they fit better on this card design without covering the pretty flowers too much. And for today I even took the time to make a decorated envelope by stamping the flower in Petal Pink and adhering a strip of DSP to the back flap. The pink and black is so pretty and so dramatic and you can choose it as a free item with a $50 order (before shipping and taxes) during Sale-A-Bration.

Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet Valentine’s Day Card

Good Morning! I love the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet stamp set along with the Country Floral Lane designer series paper, so I had to pull them out again for another Valentine’s Day card. Here is a simple card made with the pretty bicycle pattern in the Country Floral Lane DSP pack. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a strip of Balmy Blue Country Floral Lane designer series paper to a bicycle panel of Country Floral Lane DSP with Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered DSP to the front of a Balmy Blue card base with liquid glue. I wrapped a length of Sweet Sorbet baker’s twine around the card front and tied a bow.

I stamped the large heart from the double heart stamp in the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet photopolymer stamp set in Petal Pink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment over the heart in Mossy Meadow ink and cut it out with the third largest circle die in the Stylish Shapes dies.

I cut a scalloped circle from Sweet Sorbet using the fourth largest scalloped circle die in the Layering Circles dies and adhered it to the back of the stamped circle with liquid glue. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and finished it with three pearl hearts.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet stamp set in Sweet Sorbet on a Basic White panel. I stamped the open double heart next to the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Country Floral Lane DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

I love the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet stamp set because of the beautiful hearts and wonderful sentiments and the sweet Country Floral Lane designer series paper. While it’s perfect for Valentine’s day, it’s also great for any spring time occasion celebrating love!

Stampin’ Up! Desert Details Card

Good Morning! I finally pulled out my Stampin’ Up! Desert Details bundle for today’s card and I am in love! This beautiful cling stamp set with dies has wonderful Native American art and desert theme images that are so unique and beautiful! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut a panel of Soft Succulent Dry Brushed Metallic specialty designer series paper with both of the fancy rectangle dies in the Stampin’ Up! Desert Details dies to make a frame. I adhered the frame to a panel of Delicate Desert designer series paper with liquid glue and adhered them both to a Pale Papaya mat. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Gray Granite card base with dimensionals.

I cut two Soft Succulent agave plants from the Stampin’ Up! Desert Details dies and used small pieces of scotch tape to keep the centers secure. I cut one in the middle (to keep the long frond on the card) and adhered all three to the card front with liquid glue. I stamped the large desert flower with Pale Papaya ink and two of the small flowers in So Saffron ink on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I adhered the flowers together with glue dots and adhered them to the card front with dimensionals. I used the small flower stamp to apply Soft Succulent ink to a length of white crinkle ribbon, made a bow and adhered it to the card front with a glue dot.

I stamped the sentiment in Soft Succulent ink on a strip of Pale Papaya. I cut a panel of Delicate Desert DSP with the fancy diamond die from the Stampin’ Up! Desert Details dies and adhered it to the back of the label with liquid glue. I adhered the layered label to the card front with dimensionals. I added more bling with the Gold Faceted sequins on the label, frame and around the flowers.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the small flower from the Stampin’ Up! Desert Details stamp set in Pale Papaya ink in the corner of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Delicate Desert DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The shine from the dry brush metallic paper and the fun sequins is a beautiful contrast to the rustic desert designs. I love the natural feel of the Stampin’ Up! Desert Details bundle designs and I also love the fun sentiments.

Stampin’ Up! Playing in the Rain Card with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Playing in the Rain bundle is a sweet Spring weather themed cling stamp set with dies that have the cutest critters enjoying spring rain and flowers. The fabulous dies also cut out some of the images in the beautiful Rain or Shine specialty designer series paper. I used both the bundle and paper for the fun fold card I made in my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

You can watch my FB Live video on my Facebook page HERE. I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it HERE.

I adhered panels of Rain or Shine specialty DSP to each section of my scored and burnished Balmy Blue card base with liquid glue. See the scoring measurements below in the Card Stock Cuts. I cut a little DSP piggy with an umbrella with the 4th largest Layering Circles dies and adhered it to an Old Olive scalloped circle cut with the 4th largest scalloped circle die. I adhered him to the back panel in the field of flowers.

I cut the kite from the Stampin’ Up! Playing in the Rain dies from Basic White. I cut the kite sections from a Flirty Flamingo section of the Rain or Shine specialty DSP and adhered it to the kite. I cut the kite bow ties from Old Olive and adhered them to the kite string with liquid glue and adhered the kite to the back panel so that just a little bit is peeking out when the card is closed.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Playing in the Rain stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with the check pattern of Rain or Shine DSP and adhered the panel to the second section of the card base. Now that the main part of the card was done, I scored the belly band and wrapped it around the card to check it. It fit snug, so I applied Stampin’ Seal to the ends to secure it and wrapped it loosely around the card again before pressing the ends together. I adhered another strip of checked Rain or Shine DSP to the belly band to cover the seam.

For the belly band decoration, I cut the cute little turtle from the Rain or Shine specialty DSP with the turtle die from the Stampin’ Up! Playing in the Rain dies. I cut another turtle from Basic White and adhered them together with liquid glue. I cut a Crushed Curry circle using the 3rd largest Layering circle die and an Old Olive scalloped circle with the 3rd largest scalloped circle. I adhered the circles together and cut a puddle from Balmy blue. I adhered the puddle to the circles and adhered the turtle with dimensionals. I used rolled up glue dots to adhere three flower embellishments to the lie cut and adhered the layered circles to the belly band with liquid glue.

This was my first belly band card and they can be tricky because you want the band to be loose enough to slide on and off easily, but not too loose to fall off unintentionally. Also, you want to make sure it fits into your envelope. Mine just barely fits, so I think I need to fiddle a little with the measurements to get a little extra room, especially with a fancy belly band with lots of dimension. But it was a fun card to make, especially with the cute critters from the Stampin’ Up! Playing in the Rain bundle and Rain or Shine specialty papers!

I saw a video by my Inkin’ Krew teammate Tara Carpenter where she made cards with this Fun Fold and I fell in love with it, so I had to make one. You can see her pretty card here. And I wanted to use the Stampin’ Up! Playing in the Rain bundle because it coordinates with the upcoming February Paper Pumpkin set. I can’t wait to get it!

Stampin’ Up! Something Fancy with Delicate Flowers Cards

Good Morning! The new Delicate Flowers Sale-A-Bration designer series paper is full of beautiful flowers and is perfect for simple cards designed to show off beautiful DSP. I have paired the paper with the Stampin’ Up! Something Fancy bundle to show you 4 pretty floral cards that you can easily make. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My first card uses the Good You Do sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Something Fancy cling stamp set. I adhered a panel of the pretty oval flowers from the Dainty Flowers designer series paper to a Rich Razzleberry mat and adhered it to the front of a Blushing Bride card base. I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink on a Basic White panel and cut it out with the small fancy rectangle die. I adhered it to a Rich Razzleberry die cut from the larger fancy rectangle die and popped it on the card front with dimensionals. I adhered a Linen Thread bow to the bottom of the label with glue dots and accented the card with three Petal Pink Milky Dots.

My second card uses the largest floral pattern in the Dainty Flowers DSP. I adhered a panel to an Old Olive Card base with liquid glue. I cut a rectangle panel of the Dainty Flowers DSP and adhered it to a Mossy Meadow mat. I wrapped a length of linen thread around the panel and tied a bow and adhered the panel to the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Something Fancy stamp set in Versamark ink on a Mossy Meadow strip. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated it with my heat tool until it was bright and shiny and cut it out with the small label die. I cut a Crushed Curry panel with the same die and adhered it to the back of the sentiment with liquid glue and adhered the layered label to the card front with dimensionals. I accented the card with three Mango Melody Milky Dots.

For my third card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Something Fancy stamp set in Starry Sky ink on a panel of Dainty Flowers designer series paper. I embossed the panel with the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Starry Sky mat before adhering it to an Orchid Oasis card base with dimensionals. I used the large square from the Stylish Shapes dies to cut the small floral panel of the DSP and adhered it to a Starry Sky mat. I wrapped it twice with Linen Thread and made a bow before adhering it to the card front with dimensionals. I finished it with three Night of Navy Milky Dots.

For the last card, I adhered a Starry Sky checked strip of Dainty Flowers DSP to a floral panel and adhered them both to a Blushing Bride mat. I wrapped it with Linen Thread and made a bow and adhered it to a Starry Sky card base with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Something Fancy stamp set in Starry Sky ink on Basic White and cut it out with the small fancy label die. I cut a Starry Sky panel with the large fancy label die and adhered it to the back and adhered the layered label to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card with three Night of Navy Milky Dots.

For the insides of the cards, I just adhered a strip of coordinating Dainty Flowers DSP to a Basic White panel and adhered them to the inside of the cards with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Something Fancy bundle has so many pretty sentiments and wonderful label dies! Linen Thread is one of my favorite ribbons as it lends a natural element to projects and goes with everything, so I had to add it to each of the cards. The new adhesive Milky Dots are also so pretty – they’re smooth, shiny and so lustrous, so I had to use these too. And the Sale-A-Bration Dainty Flowers DSP has so many beautiful patterns that are so easy to mix and match for making pretty floral cards for any occasion. You can choose it for free with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration while supplies last.

Stampin’ Up! Fragrant Flowers for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I made a hello card with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Fragrant Flowers bundle and the beautiful Favored Flowers Sale-A-Bration designer series paper. I used the Fresh Freesia flowers and pulled out the beautiful Fresh Freesia shimmer paper for the background! You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a sketch challenge in the Blog Hop and here is the pretty card sketch we are using this week:

I embossed a panel of the Fresh Freesia shimmer paper with the Pretty Flowers embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Fresh Freesia card base. I cut a panel of the geometric Fresh Freesia Favored Flowers designer series paper with the third largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to the card front.

I used the fourth largest Stitched rectangle die and cut a panel of the DSP with Fresh Freesia Flowers and adhered it with liquid glue. I used my Stamparatus to stamp the ‘hello‘ from the Stampin’ Up! Fragrant Flowers cling stamp set several times in Blackberry Bliss ink on the right side of a Fresh Freesia panel. I cut it out with the second smallest long Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to the card with liquid glue.

I cut two Fresh Freesia flowers with the small flower die from the Stampin’ Up! Fragrant Flowers dies and adhered one of them to the card front with dimensionals (save the second one for the inside of the card). I finished the card front with silver pearls.

For the inside of the card, I adhered the second die cut flower to the bottom of a Basic white panel with liquid glue. I trimmed the excess and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Fragrant Flowers stamp set comes in cling and photopolymer. I love that you get to choose! I choose cling since I won’t need to do two-step stamping with this set. I love that the dies also cut out some of the pretty flowers in the Favored Flowers Sale-A-Bration DSP. This pretty pack of paper is free with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration.

Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet Valentine Card

Good Morning! I just love the hearts in the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet bundle and the beautiful Country Floral Lane designer series paper. These are my favorite Valentine’s day items in a long time. And I had to pull them out for another Valentine’s day card, this time for a fun fold! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of Country Floral Lane designer series paper to the front of a Sweet Sorbet card base. The card base is 1″ shorter in the front than the back, so I adhered another strip to the inside of the back panel. I adhered another large floral pattern panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and adhered it to the front panel with dimensionals and let it extend a little below the card front.

I punched a Sweet Sorbet Heart and a pair of Mossy Meadow leaves from another sheet of Country Floral Lane DSP. I punched three additional large hearts from Basic White card stock and adhered them together with liquid glue and topped them with the DSP heart. This gave me a nice thick heart for the card front! I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet stamp set in Sweet Sorbet on a small strip of Basic White. I trimmed the end to make a flag and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I adhered the punched DSP leaves to the card front with liquid and then adhered the layered heart over the leaves and label. I wrapped the card with Sweet Sorbet baker’s twine and made a bow and finished with three gold adhesive sequins.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet stamp set in Sweet Sorbet on Basic White and stamped the solid tiny hearts in Petal Pink ink. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card above the Country Floral Lane DSP.

A really simple card made with the pretty papers from the Country Floral Lane designer series paper with a little help from the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet stamp set. It really makes it easy to get ready for Valentine’s day!

Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight Card with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Have you seen all the beautiful floral stamp sets in the new January – April Mini Catalog? One of my favorites is the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight bundle and it’s because it’s not only pretty, but so versatile. For today’s card, which I made during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon, I stamped and colored one of the pretty images and embossed it for texture and I did not use a single one of the beautiful dies! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

You can watch my FB Live video on my Facebook page HERE. I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it HERE.

I adhered a panel of Fancy Flora 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of a So Saffron card base with liquid glue. I stamped the pretty flower branch from the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight cling stamp set three times in Evening Evergreen ink on a Basic white panel and colored it with light Calypso Coral, light Daffodil Delight and light Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends.

I embossed the stamped panel with the Painted Posies 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Crumb Cake mat with liquid glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front with liquid glue.

I wrapped the card front twice with Linen Thread and made a loopy bow. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight stamp set on a Crumb Cake panel in Evening Evergreen ink. I trimmed the end and adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with three brushed gold butterflies.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower branch from the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on the side of a Basic White panel. I colored the flowers with the same Stampin’ Blends as the flowers on the front and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Fancy Flora 6″ x 6″ DSP before adhering the panel to the inside of the card.

The stamped flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight stamp set are so delicate and look so pretty when stamped and colored. These yellow flowers remind me of a country stroll on a sunny Summer day – hopefully those days are not too far away!


Sale-A-Bration is Stampin’ Up!’s best promotion of the year with specials for shopping, hosting and joining! It will run through February 28, 2023 and will be the only Sale-A-Bration this year!
