Stampin’ Up! Vibrant Vases with Flowering Foils Just For You Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing another pretty card made with the Sale-A-Bration Flowering Foils specialty designer series paper and featuring the lovely sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Vibrant Vases photopolymer stamp set. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card layout was inspired by Sunday Stamps SSC226. Check out the inspiration and other entries for this pretty sketch.

I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Scripty embossing folder. I adhered it to a Whisper white mat and wrapped a length of Metallic Edge Petal Pink ribbon around it, securing it in the back.

I picked a flower from the large floral paper in the Flowering Foils specialty designer series paper and colored it with Petal Pink, So Saffron, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut the flower and adhered it to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the panel to the front of a Petal Pink card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the just for you sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Vibrant Vases stamp set on a panel of Thick Whisper White card stock in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with copper embossing powder and heat set. I cut it out with the small scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I made a bow with a length of the Metallic Edge Petal Pink ribbon and adhered it to the top of the card with glue dots. I added a Champagne rhinestone to the label.

I colored another flower from the Flowering Foils specialty designer series paper and trimmed it before adhering it to the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with snail.

The sentiments in the Stampin’ Up! Vibrant Vases stamp set are done with a very elegant font that goes well with the Sale-A-Bration Flowering Foils DSP. The shine of the foil outline images is wonderful and the paper is so easy to color with the Stampin’ Blends, making for a very special card.

Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies You are the Best Card

Good Morning and Happy Valentine’s Day! Today’s card is made with the beautiful and versatile Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the small poppy field stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on thick Whisper White card stock. I stamped twice so that the flowers would go across the panel. I cut out the panel with the largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I colored the flowers with the light Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend.

I cut a panel of Gray Granite card stock with the third largest Stitched Rectangle die and ran it through the Stone embossing folder. The Stone embossing folder is a Sale-A-Bration item that comes in the Power of Hope bundle that is FREE with a $100 purchase. I adhered the stamped thick Whisper White panel over the embossed panel with dimensionals. I adhered the embossed panel over a Poppy Parade card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Varied Vases stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a strip of Poppy Parade card stock. I cut out the label using the long thin Stitched Rectangle die using the two-step partial die cutting method so that it would be long enough for the entire sentiment. I adhered it to the poppy panel with glue dots. I colored some basic pearls with my dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blend and added them to the panel to finish it off.

I stamped the middle section of the small poppy field stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set across a strip of Whisper White. I colored the flowers with the Light Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend and adhered it to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to a Gray Granite mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set is so versatile because it has so many different poppy images that can be used to make pretty cards. I hope you try this simple design.

Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence Beautiful Day Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a video that I did yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. At Stampin’ Up! On Stage last month, we made a beautiful card using products from the Peaceful Poppies Suite – the Peaceful Poppies designer series paper with the Painted Poppies and Peaceful Moment stamp sets. Today I am recreating the card using the same sketch but using currently available products – the Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence stamp set with the Perennial Essence designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here’s the Facebook Live video showing how to make this beautiful card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube channel and you can view it here.

Here is the example card from On Stage in Poppy Parade with the card from the video in Balmy Blue.

I started by stamping the line flower image and leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence stamp set using Balmy Blue ink on the front of a Balmy Blue card base. I adhered the green Perennial Essence DSP with snail at an angle. I adhered the floral Perennial Essence DSP on top of it, but slightly offset. I stamped the sentiment on a panel of Whisper White and tore the bottom. I wrapped it in Mossy Meadow Linen Thread and added a bow and popped it on the card with dimensionals. I finished off the front with three rhinestones.

I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence stamp set around the edge of a Whisper White panel using Balmy Blue ink. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with snail.

Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals For You Card

Good Morning! I hope you had a great week and have great plans for the weekend. Today, I have another card showcasing some pretty Designer Series Paper to celebrate the final days of the Stampin’ Up! Buy 3 Get 1 Free paper sale. I made a card using the Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper. This is a lightweight paper that has photographic images of pressed flowers – another pretty set! 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 blue flower paper from the Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper with the bouquet centered on my panel. I matted it on Very Vanilla cardstock using liquid glue and then to a Night of Navy card base. I cut a strip of Night of Navy cardstock and adhered a piece of Very Vanilla Scalloped lace to the bottom and then adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the large flower from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set on a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock using Blueberry Bushel ink. I stamped the center of the flower on Very Vanilla cardstock using Daffodil Delight ink. I stamped the for you label on Very Vanilla cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I cut out all of these items using the coordinating dies from the Bouquet Bunch dies. I also cut out two leaf sprigs from the Bouquet Bunch dies on Garden Green card stock.

I tied a piece of Linen thread around the label and glued the pieces of the bouquet together. Then I attached them to the card front with dimensionals. I tied a loose bow with more linen thread and attached it using a mini glue dot.

I decorated the inside of the card by adhering a strip of the Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals Designer Series paper to the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel using liquid glue. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series paper has 24 lightweight sheets in the pack and is versatile as well as beautiful. Since it has more sheets, it’s more expensive than a standard package of Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper, but you can still choose it as your free set after purchasing three other packs! Who else lets you do that?

Enjoy your weekend and thanks for visiting!

Stampin’ Up! Bloom by Bloom You are Amazing Card

Good Morning! Today’s card uses some of my favorite items from the retiring Stampin’ Up 2018 – 2019 Annual Catalog and the 2019 Occasions Catalog to say good bye. Today is the last day to order from these catalogs. The Stampin’ Up! Bloom by Bloom stamp set first caught my eye because of the big, bold, beautiful flowers. The ‘amazing’ word die from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate You thinlits has such a stylish font that makes any card special.

I started by stamping the little flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Bloom by Bloom photopolymer stamp set on a Whisper White square in Calypso Coral, Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch. I stamped the sentiment which came from an old Sale-A-Bration set Amazing You in Night of Navy. I die cut the flowers using a circle from the stitched shapes set along with a scalloped circle from calypso coral. I attached these using snail adhesive.

I die cut the fancy ‘amazing’ word die from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate You thinlits from a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and glued it to the bottom of the flower panel using the fine tipped glue pen.

Then I attached a strip of the Happiness Blooms floral DSP to the Call Me Clover mat and then the Happiness Blooms striped DSP next to it. I have a hard time lining things up straight, so I did the wider DSP first, because it’s easier to make fine adjustments with the thinner one if needed. I next attached the panel to a Calypso Coral Card base and finally the floral circle with the die cut word to the DSP panel. All of these were done using snail adhesive, so the card is pretty flat. To finish off the front, I added 3 Night of Navy enamel dots from the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the circle with the flowers.

On the inside of the card, I added a strip of the Happiness Blooms floral DSP to the left side of a Whisper White panel and matted it in Call Me Clover before attaching it to the inside card base.

It’s sad to say good-bye to the Stampin’ Up! Bloom by Bloom stamp set as the catalogs close out. But there are so many pretty new things in the new 2019 – 2020 Annual Catalog which starts tomorrow. I haven’t posted many sneak peeks, but there are lots of them on the internet and I can’t wait to get started!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
