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!

Bloom by Bloom Congratulations

Today’s card is a feminine congratulations card that is bold and beautiful using the Bloom by Bloom stamp set.

Using thick Whisper White as a card base, I trimmed a piece of the Happiness Blooms Memories and More card pack to make the background. On a panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the bold tulip flower in Lovely Lipstick and Garden Green. I matted it with Night of Navy cardstock and used the Night of Navy baker’s twine to wrap the panel and tie a bow.

I used clear Wink of Stella to add some shimmer to the flower and used dimensionals to pop the flower panel on the card base.

I cut a banner from a piece of Night of Navy scrap and stamped the congratulations greeting from the Well Said stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set.

I used Whisper White cardstock for the inside of the card, trimmed it with the remaining Happiness Blooms Memories and More card and a floral sticker and matted it in Night of Navy before adding it to the card base.

Both the Bloom and Bloom stamp set and Happiness Blooms Memories and More card pack are on the retirement list, so we will have to say good bye to them soon. Before then, I’m going to enjoy using them to make bold, strong and vibrant floral cards.

Thanks for visiting!
