Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental with Many Medallions Thank You

Good Morning! Today I have fun Thank You card made with the Stampin’ So Sentimental bundle along with the Many Medallions dies. The Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental stamp set is bundled with the Stitched So Sweetly dies and was introduced in the January Mini Catalog. But Yay for us!! -because the set is still bundled in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog with the 10% discount! 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 medallion die from the Many Medallions dies using Pool Party card stock and adhered it to the front of a Bermuda Bay card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental cling stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink on a Pool Party Panel and cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly die. I cut the larger die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies using Bermuda Bay card stock and adhered the Pool Party Label to it. I popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I made a bow with the Polka Dot Tulle ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot. I finished the card front off with three Pool Party Rhinestones.

I cut another medallion strip from Pool Party card stock using the Many Medallions dies. I adhered it to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and then to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

This was a quick and simple thank you card but it looks really fancy! Its because the Many Medallions dies steps up the design – and it goes really well with the angles and curves in the Stitched So Sweetly label.

Stampin’ Up! Basket of Blooms Thank You Card

Good Morning! Today I have a fun thank you card made with the sweet Stampin’ Up! Basket of Blooms photopolymer stamp set. For today’s card, I used one of the color palettes from the Stampin’ Up! Color Coach that I described in my post here. 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 strip of Playing with Patterns designer series paper to a strip of Cinnamon Cider card stock and then adhered the layered strip to the front of a Coastal Cabana card base. I wrapped a length of linen thread twice around the card and tied a bow on the right side. I cut a panel of So Saffron card stock with with the largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies and embossed it with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. I popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the basket from the Stampin’ Up! Basket of Blooms stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White. I colored it with the Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut it out with my paper snips. I punched 4 leaf clusters with the sprig punch from Just Jade card stock. I stamped 8 flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Basket of Blooms stamp set in Magenta Madness ink and punched them out with the Small Bloom Punch. I accented the centers with Coastal Cabana resin dots.

I adhered 3 of the sprig clusters to the So Saffron panel on the card front with multipurpose liquid glue, fanning them out. I popped the basket on with dimensionals and popped on 7 of the flowers with dimensionals. I felt that the flowers covered too much of the leaves, so I punched additional sprig tips and adhered them with liquid glue around the tops of the flowers to add more greenery. Much better! 😊

For the inside, I adhered a strip of the Playing with Patterns DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the last sprig and flower and stamped the thank you sentiment from the Free as a Bird stamp set in Magenta Madness ink in the lower corner for something a little different. Do you like it? I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I wanted to use the Color Coach to come up with color palettes for my cards, but I have struggled with it. So I was really happy with how this card came out and I’m encouraged to try another palette. Today’s palette is Magenta Madness, Coastal Cabana and So Saffron. Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!!

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Thank You Card

Good Morning! Tomorrow is the BIG DAY when the new Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog is open for orders!! Yay!! In preparation, I am saying good bye to one of my favorite designer series paper packs – Best Dressed – by using it with a sneak peek of one of the cute new stamp sets in the new catalog, the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers. They look so good together! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by adhering a panel of the Best Dressed designer series paper to a Lovely Lipstick card base. Today is also the last day for all the Lovely Lipstick products as it is one of the 2018-2020 In Colors retiring today!

I stamped the rose bouquet from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel and colored it with the Lovely Lipstick, Granny Apple Green, Petal Pink, Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the flowers again on a Whisper White panel and fussy cut the roses. I colored them with Lovely Lipstick and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the jar from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the stems and colored them with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the water in Pool Party ink after stamping off.

I cut the panel out with the third largest stitched rectangle die and adhered it to an Old Olive mat. I popped the fussy cut roses on the panel with dimensionals and brushed it with Clear Wink of Stella to give it some glitter. I colored some Whisper White crinkle ribbon with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend and made a bow and adhered it with a mini glue dot. I stamped the Thanks sentiment from the Many Mates cling stamp set in Old Olive ink on a Whisper White strip and trimmed the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. I used the punch to trim the ends of a Lovely Lipstick panel and adhered the label with dimensionals. I adhered the layered label with liquid glue and adhered the panel to the card base with dimensionals. I finished it off with three Lovely Lipstick enamel dots.

I decorated the inside by adhering a strip of Best Dressed designer series paper to the bottom of a Whisper White panel before adhering it to the inside of the card.

Good bye to the pretty Best Dressed designer series paper and Lovely Lipstick and a hearty hello and welcome to the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers stamp set as it will be a favorite in the new Annual Catalog. It has a coordinating Jar Punch, reversible stamps and fun shaker domes, plus there are four flowers bouquets that you can put on top! Be sure to check them out when the catalog goes live tomorrow!

Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Thank You Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Can you believe that it’s June!! Today I’m sharing a sneak peek of the fun Stampin’ Up! Lovely You bundle on a Thank You card that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. The Stampin’ Up! Lovely You bundle will be available this Wednesday, June 3 when the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog goes live – YAY!!! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post (though some items will be available after June 3, 2020) along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it here if you prefer.

I started by stamping the the flowers and leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You cling stamp set on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the big flower in Balmy Blue three times, the small buds in So Saffron three times and the leaf cluster in Soft Sea Foam three times. I stamped the long leaf branch in Granny Apple Green twice over the So Saffron Leaves and finished by stamping the 5 petal flower in Melon Mambo three times. I adhered the stamped panel to a Melon Mambo mat and wrapped it in Whisper White Bakers twine twice before tying a bow.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You stamp set in Balmy Blue ink on a strip of Whisper White card stock. I trimmed the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. I trimmed the ends of a strip of Balmy Blue card stock with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch and adhered the stamped label on top with dimensionals. I used dimensionals to adhere the label over the twine on the stamped panel. I adhered the layered, stamped panel to a Balmy Blue card base with dimensionals.

I finished the card front with a Melon Mambo butterfly that was die cut using the Nature’s Thoughts butterfly die.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flowers and leaves in the same colors as the front on the lower left corner of a Whisper White card stock panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Lovely You bundle has sweet sentiments and great solid image floral stamps, so great that it made the cover of the new catalog! And the punch is definitely a must have! You can get yours when the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog goes live on June 3. Two more days – I can’t wait!! 😊

Stampin’ Up! Layered With Kindness for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I’m using bunch of retiring favorites for my card today along with a sneak peek of a new one :

We have a color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using:

I started by stamping the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Layered With Kindness stamp set in Mango Melody randomly on a strip of Whisper White card stock. I stamped the single leaf in Old Olive after stamping off randomly among the Mango Melody flowers. I used the light So Saffron Stampin’ Blend to color the area between the flowers in a circular motion. Then I embossed it with the Subtle 3D embossing folder. This resulted in some custom designer series paper that matched the color palette for today’s blog hop! I used the lacy border from the Ornate Borders Dies to cut two lacy borders from Mango Melody card stock and adhered them to the back of the stamped and embossed strip.

I embossed a panel of So Saffron card stock with the beautiful Country Floral 3D embossing folder. Since this embossing folder causes shrinkage, I cut the panel 1/4″ longer than the final size and trimmed it to the correct length after embossing. I adhered the embossed panel to a Whisper White panel with liquid glue and adhered the stamped and embossed layered strip on top with liquid glue. I adhered the layered panel to a So Saffron card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the fancy happy birthday label from the Stampin’ Up! Layered With Kindness stamp set on a small Mango Melody Panel with VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool until it was shiny. I cut it out with the Label Me Lovely Punch. I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Layered With Kindness stamp set in Old Olive ink on a Whisper White strip and cut it out with the Label Me Fancy Punch. I adhered it to the Mango Melody label with dimensionals. I cut out the leaf spray from Old Olive card stock with the die from the Forever Flourishing Dies that will be available in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog on June 1. I adhered the leaves behind the label with liquid glue. I adhered the layered label to the card front with dimensionals on the right side and liquid glue on the left side. I finished it off with a White bow.

For the inside I stamped, embossed and colored a strip of Whisper White card stock so that it matched the panel on the card front. I adhered it to a Whisper White panel and then to the inside of the card.

Sadly, the Stampin’ Up! Layered with Kindness stamp set is retiring along with the beautiful Country Floral embossing folder. Both of these items are still available as Last Chance products until they sell out or through June 2, so check them out in my Online Store.
