Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles Beautiful Day Card

Good Morning! My posts have been light for the past few weeks because of having company and visiting family, but I’m back and ready to roll up my sleeves to bring you some more card ideas. And it’s just in the nick of time because the rollout the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog is just around the corner! But before I start with holiday items, I want to show you this vintage card made with the Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles cling stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! 2019 – 2020 Annual Catalog. You can find the supplies I used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the cardstock sizes.

Collage cards have been very popular for a long time, and are great for creative expression. You can play with combining different colors and textures, and they often have nature themes and vintage items with a sentimental feel. The Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles stamp set makes it very easy to create a collage card because the elements are perfectly proportioned to each other and they’re very beautiful!

For today’s card, I started with a Very Vanilla panel and stamped the script image in Rococo Rose after stamping off. I then stamped the leaf image over it in Old Olive. I then took the filigree stamp and stamped it in Versamark and then embossed it with Gold embossing powder. I then sponged the edges in Crumb Cake and adhered the panel to a Rococo Rose mat. I finished it with Linen Thread and a bow. I stamped the large flower from the Free as a Bird cling stamp set in Rococo Rose ink. I fussy cut the flower, added a gold metallic pearl to the center and popped it on the collage with a mini dimensional.

I took another panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and ran it through the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder and matted it with Rococo Rose and adhered it to a Thick Very Vanilla card base with dimensionals. I added the collage to the card with dimensionals.

To finish off the card front, I embossed the Have a Beautiful Day sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles stamp set in gold on a piece of Rococo Rose cardstock and cut it out with the Stitched Nested Labels die. I finished the label with two gold metallic pearls and adhered it with multipurpose liquid glue.

I decorated the inside of the card by stamping the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles stamp set in Old Olive after stamping off and then stamping the large rose from the Free as a Bird stamp set in Rococo Rose after stamping off.

The Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles stamp set updates the Collage Card concept with fresh images that can be combined with several other stamps in the catalog for easily making unique Collage Cards with that vintage feel. I hope you try it. Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Beautiful Day in Fall Card

Good Morning! Today I used the pretty maple leaf stamps in the versatile Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Seasonal Layers dies to make a fall card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for today’s blog hop is Fall Frenzy. Unbelievable that fall is just around the corner – the year has flown by!

I used an old technique – using re-inkers with baby wipes – in making this card and you can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with cardstock sizes.

I started the card by creating the background. I took a baby wipe, folded it and added drops of Old Olive, So Saffron, Calypso Coral and Cherry Cobbler ink to create a faux “ink pad”. I took the little solid maple leaf stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons stamp set and inked it using the baby wipe and randomly stamped the leaves on a Very Vanilla panel. I rotated the stamp so that each leaf would pick up different color combinations. It resembles autumn leaves turning color before falling to the ground.

I sponged the areas between the leaves lightly with Crumb Cake and Cajun Craze ink to give it some depth. It’s hard to see, but I then took the larger outline maple leaf stamp and inked it with Delicata Golden Glitz metallic ink which will be available on Sept 4 in the 2019 Holiday Catalog and stamped it randomly on the panel to add some golden sparkle. I finally ran the panel through the Woodland embossing folder to add texture and mounted it on a Cajun Craze mat and an Old Olive Card Base.

I then stamped the It’s a beautiful day sentiment from the Love What You Do stamp set in Versamark ink on a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set it. I die cut it using the large label from the Wild Rose die set and adhered it to the card with dimensionals.

I die cut maple leaves using the Seasonal Layers dies from Calypso Coral, Old Olive and So Saffron scraps. I decorated the Calypso Coral and Old Olive leaves using the larger outline stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons stamp set and Delicata Golden Glitz metallic ink. I sponged the So Saffron leaf with Calypso Coral and Old Olive ink to echo the leaves on the background. I also die cut the large outline leaf in Gold glitter paper (non-SU). I added some gold metallic thread behind the larger leaves and adhered the leaves to the label with glue dots. I finished it off with three clear epoxy dots.

I decorated the inside of the card adding a strip of the baby wipe stamped Very Vanilla to the bottom of a Very Vanilla cardstock panel. I added the large outline maple leaf stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons stamp set in Delicata Golden Glitz metallic ink. I matted it in Cajun Craze and added it to the inside of the card. I decorated the envelope by stamping the outline maple leaf in the lower left corner of a Very Vanilla envelope using Cajun Craze ink.

The touches of Delicata Golden Glitz ink with the Gold embossing and Gold glitter paper add some nice subtle sparkle to the card. Maple trees are the best for dramatic fall foliage color, and I’m ready to enjoy those beautiful fall days that are just around the corner!
