Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Memories and More Note Cards

Good Morning! Today I have a set of four fun note cards made with the Stampin’ Up! Tropical Memories and More card pack. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The Memories and More card packs by Stampin’ Up! have 6″ x 4″ and 3″ x 4″ double sided cards that all coordinate and special laser cut stickers. This has the following advantages:

  • It makes card making easy and quick for the beginner paper crafter or busy person with limited crafting time.
  • The cards are perfectly sized and designed for Memory Keeping Journal pocket pages and Scrapbooking.

And the Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Memories and More card pack has great nostalgic images that perfectly capture a relaxing tropical paradise! Here are four cards that I made using some of the cards in the card pack:

I wanted to make a simple set of 4 note cards with a tropical theme and I used the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Cards and Envelopes. These are made from a thinner craft paper but with a pretty white foil decoration and the rustic feel goes well with the tropical theme. I ended up covering up the white foil on the cards, but you can see it trimming the envelope sides. The size of the card bases is 4-1/4″ x 6-1/4″, so they go perfectly with the large cards in the Memories and More card packs.

My concept was to use a 3″ x 4″ card with a cute image and surround it with a coordinating all over design so I started by selecting 4 of the 3″ x 4″ cards. I couldn’t find good backgrounds for all of them, so I looked through the Tropical Oasis designer series paper and found good matches. For this card, I paired the cute ukulele image with the lily Tropical Oasis designer series paper cut to 4″ x 6″. I used Shaded Spruce to mat the small card and adhered everything with multipurpose liquid glue.

With this card, I used Shaded Spruce as a mat again and paired the hibiscus and frangipani with the 4″ x 6″ bird of paradise card from the Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Memories and More card pack.

I feel bad so many beaches are closed, but in carefree times, this is a great idea. And I love these vintage station wagons! I paired this cute 3″ x 4″ Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Memories and More card with an Early Espresso mat and the cute station wagon paper from the Tropical Oasis designer series paper for the background.

For my final card in the set, I chose this fabulous flamingo and paired it with the flamingo background 4″ x 6″ Stampin’ Up! Memories and More card. I used Shaded Spruce for the mat.

For the inside of each card, I cut a 4″ x 6″ panel of Whisper White and trimmed the bottom with the same papers as the background. I added one of the flower stickers to the top corner and that was it. Quick and easy way to create a fun note card set.

Isn’t this a fun set of note cards? I have really enjoyed playing with the Stampin’ Up! Memories and More card packs because they are so versatile and add another dimension to coordinating with other products in the same suite. And there are still so many cute images left in the card pack that I still need to put to good use.

Stampin’ Up! Flourishing Phrases Note Card

Good Morning! Do you remember the Stampin’ Up! Flourishing Phrases cling stamp set and Flourish Dies? It’s been a couple of years since these came out, but they were one of my favorites when they made their debut. It has so many intricate dies and gorgeous sentiments for all occasions. Since I haven’t used it for a while, I thought I’d pull it out and make a simple card and combine it with some of the newer products. 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 Whisper White card stock with the Coastal Weave embossing folder. I trimmed the embossed panel to 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ afterward. The Coastal Weave embossing folder is one that sometimes shrinks the paper, so I cut it larger than needed to allow for shrinkage.

I cut out the largest flower from the Flourish Dies from Grapefruit Grove card stock. I cut out the medium flower from Whisper White card stock and the smallest flower from Grapefruit Grove. I used mini glue dots to adhere the flowers together, aligning the petal tips. I adhered a large Basic Pearl to the center. I cut the large leaf sprig from the Flourish Dies from Mint Macaron card stock and the berries from Crumb Cake. I trimmed the ends of the last two die cuts so they wouldn’t extend too far.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Flourishing Phrases stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a strip of Mint Macaron card stock. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set until shiny. I cut the sentiment with the second smallest of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the leaf and berries with small dots of multipurpose liquid glue so it wouldn’t smear, and I held it down for a few seconds to make sure it was stuck. I adhered the flower with a dimensional and I made a bow from Whisper White crinkle ribbon and tucked it under the edge of the flower with a glue dot.

I cut another medium flower from the Flourish Dies from Grapefruit Grove and adhered it to a Whisper White panel, again using small dots of multipurpose liquid glue. I cut two small leaves from Mint Macaron and adhered them next to the flower. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The vivid graphics in the Stampin’ Up! Flourishing Phrases stamp set and Flourish Dies go well with many of the newer products. It’s fun to bring out the old with all their memories and give them a new twist by combining them with newer products. And it’s good to pull out the Grapefruit Grove card stock. As one of the 2018-2020 In Colors, it will be retired when the new Annual Catalog is released. Now is a good time to stock up on 2018-2020 In Color card stock, ink pads and refills before the supplies become limited!

Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad Note Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a quick card made with the Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. We are in the final days of the Stampin’ Up! Buy 3 Get 1 Free Designer Series Paper sale. The Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad DSP is one of the paper sets included in the sale and it’s so beautiful! So I wanted to show how you can use DSP to make a quick card that is also special. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I wanted to use the Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad paper with all the song birds to say a last hello to the little birdies before they fly away for the winter. So I cut a large piece of the DSP and adhered it to a Mossy Meadow mat with liquid glue and then to a Calypso Coral card base with dimensionals.

I added a strip of Crumb Cake textured ribbon with snail. I stamped the a little note sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala stamp set in Versamark ink on a strip of Mossy Meadow, sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set it. I then trimmed the ends and adhered it to the card front with snail.

I stamped 3 flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Free as a Bird stamp set on Whisper White and colored them with Calypso Coral and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends. I then fussy cut the flowers. I molded the petals and added pearl centers (I colored the white pearls with the dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blend). I die cut some leaf sprigs from the Stampin’ Up! Frosted Frames dies in Old Olive vellum and and attached the leaves and flowers to the card using mini glue dots.

I decorated the inside of the card by adding a strip of the same Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad Designer Series paper to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then to the inside of the card using liquid glue.

This is a simple pretty little card where the beautiful Designer Series paper is the star. A little ribbon, pearls, vellum and embossing add elegant accents that makes the card special without detracting from the paper. I hope you enjoyed today’s card and consider the Buy 3 Get 1 Free sale. It’s such a good deal! Thanks for visiting!

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Just a Note Card

Good morning! Today’s card uses the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala stamp set with the Butterfly Duet Punch.

I started out by stamping a bunch of butterflies from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala stamp set on Thick Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloring them with Stampin’ Blends and copic markers. I used light pastel colors – the light Flirty Flamingo and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends along with yellow, green and blue copics. I randomly colored the butterfly wings so that each butterfly is different. The nice thing about these stamps is that you get a large and small butterfly with each stamp and they line up perfectly with the punch.

After stamping and coloring the butterflies, I punched them out and stamped the little butterfly bodies. I then arranged them on the Gingham Gala DSP in Grapefruit Grove with some of the butterflies going over the edge. I attached the butterflies to the paper with mini glue dots in the centers and trimmed the butterflies that went over the edge. Using the Thick Whisper White really gives the butterflies dimension on the paper! I then mounted it on a basic black mat and popped it on a Grapefruit Grove card base with dimensionals.

I took a scrap of basic black and stamped the ‘a little note’ sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder before heat setting. The font is real sweet and goes well with the casual and lighthearted gingham background and colorful butterflies. I wrapped the banner with some whisper white baker’s twine and tied a bow before popping it on the card with dimensionals.

On the inside of the card I took a piece of the gingham DSP and adhered it to the bottom of a piece of Whisper White with multipurpose liquid glue and attached three of the little butterflies with glue dots. I matted the inside piece in Basic Black and attached it to the card base with snail.

We went to our first cookout of the year Saturday and it was a perfect day. This card reminds me of summer picnics with all the butterflies and gingham.

The Gingham Gala DSP is currently available in the 2019 Occasions Catalog and will be retiring on June 3 or when supplies run out. The Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala stamp set and Butterfly Duet Punch are currently sold as a bundle for 10% off. Both of these items are carried over into the 2019 – 2020 Annual Catalog (Yay!!) but will no longer be available as a bundle at the discounted price. These are perfect for butterfly lovers!

Thanks for visiting and have a great week!
