Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Congratulations Card

Good Morning! Today I have a Congratulations card made with the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments bundle. This stamp set has wonderful sentiments and is bundled with the Poppy Moments dies that create beautiful die cut poppies. 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 the large poppy with the dies in the Poppy Moments die set in Real Red and Poppy Parade card stocks. I cut the solid piece from Poppy Parade and the outline piece from Real Red. I adhered them with liquid glue and added a center cut from Basic Black card stock. I cut two sets of the large single leaf dies, using Mossy Meadow for the outline and Old Olive for the solid. I adhered them together with liquid glue.

I cut a panel of Old Olive card stock and embossed it with the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered it to the bottom of a Blackberry Bliss mat with snail and added a panel of Peaceful Poppies designer series paper to the top. I covered the seam with a strip of Real Red Stitched Ribbon and secured it in the back. I stamped the Congratulations greeting from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a strip of Rick Razzleberry and trimmed the ends before adhering it to the embossed Old Olive panel with liquid glue.

I adhered the leaves using liquid glue and popped the flower on with dimensionals. I finished off the panel with a Real Red bow and clear gemstones. I popped the panel on the front of the card with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I adhered a strip of the same Peaceful Poppies DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel before adhering it to a Blackberry Bliss mat. I then adhered it to the inside of the card. I finished off the inside by adhering a small die cut poppy that was made with Poppy Parade, Real Red and Basic Black card stock.

The die cut poppies in the Poppy Moments are so dramatic and make every card special. And they go so well with the wonderful greetings in the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments stamp set.

Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts and Sending Flowers Congratulations Card

Good Morning! Today is Coordination Products Release Day!! And to celebrate, I have a special spring congratulations card made with a the Stampin’ Up! Sending Flowers die set that is part of the new items available 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 cut a panel of the striped Pleased as Punch designer series paper, which is also available today in the Coordination Product Release, and adhered it to a Granny Apple Green card base.

I cut the pretty circular floral die from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Flowers dies from Thick Whisper White Card Stock. I colored the stems and leaves on each flower with the Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend. I cut two sets of flowers each from Highland Heather, Blushing Bride, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight card stock. I adhered the die cut flowers on each stem of the frame with tiny dots of multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the die cut panel on the card front with dimensionals, carefully trimming and placing a piece of a dimensional behind each flower. I accented each of the petal flowers with a pearl.

I cut the scalloped label from Pool Party card stock using the scalloped label die from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Flowers dies. I stamped the Congratulation! sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts Sale-A-Bration stamp set in Granny Apple Green ink on a strip of Daffodil Delight card stock. I cut it out with the banner die from the Sending Flowers dies using the two step technique so that it would be shorter than normal. I adhered the labels together with snail and adhered it to the card with snail. I stamped the Whisper White crinkle ribbon with Pool Party ink and the small splotch stamp in the Painted Petals stamp set. I tied a bow and adhered it to the label with a glue dot. I finished the label with a pearl on the other end.

I decorated the inside by adhering some of the leftover die cut flowers on the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card. A cheerful Spring themed congratulations card is great for many occasions – new baby, graduation, engagement, promotion – all wonderful causes for celebration!

The Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts Sale-A-Bration stamp set is FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration which is going on now. It has lots of cute sentiments that can be used for many occasions. The Stampin’ Up! Sending Flowers die set and Pleased as Punch designer series paper are finally available today for the first time as part of the Coordination Release!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Congratulations Card

Good Morning! I am sharing a card I made for a special lady who just got engaged. I made it with the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship photopolymer stamp set and used the Sale-A-Bration Sending You Thoughts cling stamp set for the sentiments. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The design for this card was inspired by the sketch in the Global Design Project 222 Sketch Challenge. Check it out along with the other entries in the challenge.

I started by cutting two panels of Woven Threads designer series paper and adhering them together with multipurpose liquid glue. I ran the DSP through the Scripty embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Seaside Spray card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the flowers on the main panel with the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship photopolymer stamp set. I used Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sea Foam inks on a Whisper White Panel. I brushed some clear Wink of Stella on the flowers to give them a touch of sparkle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Sending You Thoughts in Smoky Slate ink in the upper corner. I adhered the panel to a Rococo Rose mat and wrapped a length of Seaside Spray metallic ribbon around it, securing it in the back. I made a bow with the ribbon and adhered it to the front with glue dots and popped the panel on the card front with dimensionals. I finished off the floral panel with a Seaside Spray faceted gem.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the hydrangea flower from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship stamp set in the lower corner of a Whisper White panel in Seaside Spray ink. I added some Pear Pizzazz leaves and stamped the sentiment from the Sending You Thoughts stamp set in Smoky Slate ink. I added a strip of Woven Threads DSP that I embossed with the Scripty embossing folder to the bottom and adhered it to a Rococo Rose mat before adhering it to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue. I also stamped the hydrangeas and leaves on a Whisper White envelope to match.

These sentiments from the Sending You Thoughts stamp set are perfect for an engagement card. And the sentiments from this stamp set are great for a lot of celebrations. You can get the Sending You Thoughts stamp set for FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration.

Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Congratulations Card Sneak Peek

Good Morning! Today I have a sneak peek of the new Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies bundle that will be in the new January – June 2020 Mini Catalog. The bundle has the Painted Poppies cling stamp set which has pretty line images of poppy flowers and leaves with additional artistic stamps that can be used to color the flowers with artistic flair. The bundle also has the Painted Labels dies which has dies for some labels labels as well as for cutting out the larger poppies and leaves. 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 this card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge #329.

I started with mounting a panel of the pretty Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper on a Blackberry Bliss mat. I wrapped a length of Real Red ribbon around it and secured it in the back with snail and scotch tape. I cut out the large swirl from Old Olive card stock using the Painted Labels dies and adhered it to the panel with liquid glue.

I stamped the large poppy flower and small poppy flower from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set on Whisper White card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored them with the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends and cut them out with the coordinating dies from the Painted Labels dies. I stamped 4 leaves in Old Olive ink on Whisper White and colored them with the Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend. I cut them out with coordinating dies.

I arranged the flowers and leaves and adhered them together with liquid glue. I adhered them to the panel with dimensionals. I made a bow from the Real Red Ribbon and adhered it next to the flowers. I stamped the Congratulations sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set in VersaMark ink on a strip of Blackberry Bliss card stock. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set. I trimmed the end. I adhered the label to a thin strip of Old Olive card stock and then to the floral panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the floral panel to a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals.

I decorated the inside by stamping the poppy with stem and leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel. I adhered a strip of the Peaceful Poppies DSP to the bottom of the panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat and then to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

The Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp bundle is part of the Peaceful Poppies suite which is prominently featured on the cover of the January – June 2020 Mini Catalog.

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Smile Card

Good Morning! I hope you had a good weekend and are ready for the weekday grind. Today I have a card with a cheery Monday morning message, “Smile … It’s your time to shine!“. The card is made with the new Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane cling bundle. You can find the products used at the bottom of the post.

The layout for today’s card is inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #395. This simple sketch gave me a great opportunity to showcase the wonderful large Stitched Label in vellum. And the striped paper is just enough to break up the patterned background.

And the colors are inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #318. This combination is so fresh and summery and it gave me another opportunity to stamp patterned paper.

Be sure to check out the fantastic entries in these challenges for more card making inspiration.

I started today’s card by making another faux DSP – designer series paper or patterned paper. I used the daisy stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane and Stampin’ Up! Daisy Delight stamp sets and the leaf branch from the Stampin’ Up! Free as a Bird stamp set. On a sheet of Whisper White cardstock, I randomly stamped the large daisy in Petal Pink, the small daisy in Calypso Coral and the leaves in Mint Macaron. I lightly sponged each image in the respective colors and then I sponged the rest with So Saffron. Then I ran it through the Subtle embossing folder to add texture. The embossing really made it special!

I cut an extended piece of the striped paper from the Magnolia Lane DSP using the 1″ Stitched Rectangle die. I die cut the large fancy Stitched Label die from vellum and heat embossed the Smile sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set on Mink Macaron and die cut it using the smaller Stitched label Die.

I stamped three of the small daisies in Petal Pink on Whisper White and punched them out with the Medium Daisy Punch and curled the ends before attaching them together. I finished the daisy off with a non-SU clear enamel dot from my stash that I colored with the dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends and finally a Mint Macaron leaf branch from the Flourish dies. I arranged all the elements on the card front, matted it in Mint Macaron and then popped it on a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the shine sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set, added a strip of faux DSP and matted it in Mint Macaron.

Isn’t that a pretty and cheerful way to start a summer week? Thanks for visiting and I hope that you have a week where you do shine!
