Stampin’ Up! Witty-cisms Graduation Card

Good Morning! Today’a card is a graduation card made with the Stampin’ Up! Witty-cisms cling stamp set. This stamp set is on the retiring list so it is available while supplies last, but it is full of cute and clever images and sentiments. Cards made with this stamp set are sure to bring a smile to anyone receiving them. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the Daffodil Delight confetti paper from the Birthday Bonanza designer series paper to a Basic Black mat with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the Bermuda Bay confetti paper on top and the present paper on the bottom. I cut the fancy border from the Nature’s Thoughts dies from Basic Black and adhered it across the seam. I adhered the layered panel on a Bermuda Bay card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the graduation cap image from the Stampin’ Up! Witty-cisms stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel and colored the cap with Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend. I cut it out with the Layering Squares die. I adhered it to a Basic Black mat and popped it on the card with dimensionals. I finished the cap with a silver metallic pearl.

A simple, fun card to celebrate a graduation made with the Stampin’ Up! Witty-cisms cling stamp set and the colorful Birthday Bonanza designer series paper!

I chose the congratulations sentiment from the Beautiful Friendship photopolymer stamp set for the inside of the card since the font was similar to the one on the front. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel before adhering it to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

Both the Stampin’ Up! Witty-cisms stamp set and the Birthday Bonanza designer series paper are on the retiring list and are available while supplies last until June 2. Check out the Last Chance Products in my Online Store to get yours while you can.

Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Congratulations Card

Good Morning! Today I have a congratulations card made with the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home bundle. This is a versatile set with great nautical images and die cuts that really make you smell the ocean air. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of Balmy Blue card stock with the Subtle 3D embossing folder and adhered a strip of Come Sail Away designer series paper to the middle. I adhered it o a Balmy Blue card base.

I stamped the small sailboat from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home cling stamp set twice in Night of Navy ink on Sahara Sand card stock and cut it out with the second largest Stitched Nested Label Dies. I made a knot with the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand baker’s twine and wrapped it around the panel, securing it in the back. I adhered the pane to the middle of the card with dimensionals.


I stamped the large sailboat from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home cling stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a Whisper White panel and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Smooth Sailing Dies. I adhered the sailboat to the panel with dimensionals. I stamped the Congrats sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home cling stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a Sahara Sand panel and cut it out with the little banner label die from the Smooth Sailing Dies. I adhered it to the panel with multipurpose liquid glue and dimensionals.

I stamped the wonderful sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home cling stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a Whisper White panel and the small sailboat in Sahara Sand next to it. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Come Sail Away DSP and adhered it to the inside of the card.

Nautical themed cards are great for masculine cards and the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home bundle is the best. And I’m glad that both the Sailing Home cling stamp set and Smooth Sailing Dies will be carrying over into the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, however they will no longer be sold as a bundle with the 10% discount. So if you are considering getting both with the discount, head over to my Online Store to buy the bundle while it’s still available.

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.
