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!

Cake Soiree and All My Love DSP For You Card

Good Morning! The star of today’s card is the All My Love DSP, along with the roses from the Cake Soiree stamp and die set. As a bonus, the font is so beautiful!

The layout for the card is inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #386. I was surprised and pleased at how the sharp angles of the sketch complement the soft floral themes in the DSP and rose die cuts.

Starting with the DSP with the roses and Crumb Cake background, I cut a rectangle. Then, I placed the large rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangles dies on an angle at the bottom. I was careful, not to overlap the top of the die with the top edge of the paper, because I didn’t want it to be cut. Then I ran it through my die cutting machine and got a lovely stitched edge on the bottom. I then adhered it to the Lovely Lipstick mat and carefully trimmed the angled bottom on my paper cutter.

I die cut the large rose from the Cake Soiree die cuts in Whisper White and Flirty Flamingo. I used one of the leftover pieces to trace the image on a piece of Whisper White. Then I colored it using the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. I colored the center with the dark marker. Then using the light marker, I blended the color outward and colored the rest. I then cut it out with paper snips and adhered it to the back of the white die cut with the fine tipped glue pen. I left the Flirty Flamingo die cut without a backing.

Then I stamped the solid rose using Flirty Flamingo on Whisper White. First, I inked up the stamp and stamped it off. Then, using an ink dauber, I added more ink to the center of the stamp. This gave me an image with a darker center. I used the matching die to cut it out. I was really pleased at how well these roses matched the DSP!

I die cut a stitched circle from Crumb Cake, and stamped the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick. I die cut a scalloped circle from Lovely Lipstick and mounted it to the back of the stitched circle. I die cut some of the open leaves using some old Pistachio Pudding scraps and attached them to the back of the solid rose with a glue dot. I then arranged the roses and and added pearl accents, popping the center rose with dimensionals. I adhered the circle to the card front using dimensionals.

The inside of the card is pretty simple, only being accented with a strip of the floral DSP and matted with Lovely Lipstick.

In using this stamp set, I felt that I should make a cake card because the cake is so beautiful. But the roses go well with the DSP and make a nice statement on their own. I will just have cake cards later! Thanks for stopping by!
