Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poppies Thinking of You Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a video that I did yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. The Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poppies designer series paper has a sheet that makes the most beautiful full page card front, and you can make the simplest beautiful card with it.

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

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

In the video, I made the card backwards, making the inside first and then the card front. I started by stamping the poppy and bud stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored the flowers with the Poppy Parade Stampin Blends and the stems and leaves with the Old Olive Stampin Blends. I used the large spatter stamp from the Painted Poppies stamp set to decorate the bottom of the panel with Blackberry Bliss and Poppy Parade inks after stamping off. I adhered it to an Old Olive mat and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base.

I trimmed the pretty panel of Stampin’ Up Peaceful Poppies DSP with an Old Olive mat. I tied a length of Blackberry Bliss twine around the panel and made a bow. I pre-made a label using the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and dies from the Painted Frames die set. I decorated the label with Peaceful Poppies sequins and an Old Olive die cut and popped it on the card front with dimensionals over the twine. I popped the panel on the card base with dimensionals and finished it off with more Peaceful Poppies sequins.

The Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poppies designer series paper is beautiful and with the Peaceful Moments and Painted Poppies bundles, the possibilities are endless. And this paper in the DSP pack is so artistic and pretty that it makes a statement on its own so that you can create a stunning card quick and easy.

Stampin’ Up! Stamp Honey Bee Thinking of You Card

Happy Friday! Today’s card is a Thinking of You card made with the pretty new Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee bundle. The Golden Honey specialty designer series paper that I used with it is available for FREE as a Sale-A-Bration item with a $50 purchase. Yay for Sale-A-Bration!! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I love the beehive stamp and die in the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee stamp bundle, so I had to make it a focal point in my card. I stamped it in Daffodil Delight ink on a Thick Whisper White panel and cut it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the large bee and three of the small bees in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Thick Whisper White and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I colored the bee stripes with the dark Daffodil Delight Stampin Blend.

I cut a panel of the Golden Honey specialty designer series paper with the flowers and bees and a strip of the black background honeycomb paper and adhered them together with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered them to a Basic Black card base. I popped the beehive on the card front with dimensionals and arranged the bees around the hive. I used dimensionals to adhere the bees to the background and multipurpose liquid glue on the bee that is on the beehive.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee stamp set on a strip of basic black using Versamark ink. I sprinkled gold embossing powder on it and heat set. I trimmed the label and adhered it to the card. I added some gold metallic pearls to the label and colored some regular pearls with the Basic Black Dark Stampin Blend and added them around the beehive.

I stamped another small bee in Memento Tuxedo black in the corner of a Whisper White panel, I colored it’s stripes with the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and added a strip of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee bundle is one of the new bundles in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. It consists of the Honey Bee cling stamp set and the Detailed Bee dies and is available with a 10% discount. The Golden Honey specialty designer series paper is in the Sale-A-Bration brochure and is available for FREE with a $50 purchase. It has designs that coordinate with the Honey Bee stamps and the bee in today’s card background can be cut out with one of the dies in the set!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms You Mean So Much Card

Good Morning! Today is the BIG day as the Stampin’ Up! January-June 2020 Mini Catalog is finally open for ordering! I am celebrating with a card made from the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms bundle. 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 Parisian Blossoms specialty designer series paper and adhered it to a Pool Party card base with multipurpose liquid glue. I embossed a panel of Petal Pink card stock with the Parisian Flourish 3-D embossing folder and adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the large cherry branch from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms stamp set with Sahara Sand ink on Thick Whisper White card stock. I colored the branch with the Petal Pink and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Cherry Blossoms dies. I adhered the branch to the card with dimensionals and accented the blooms with large champagne gemstones.


I made a bow with Linen Thread and attached it to the cherry blossoms with a glue dot. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on a strip of Pool Party card stock. I trimmed the end and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the branch from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock after stamping off. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of Parisian Blossoms specialty DSP and adhered it to a Petal Pink mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms and Cherry Blossoms dies come in a bundle for 10% off in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. It is just one of the new beautiful sets that are now available. And the Parisian Blossoms specialty designer series paper, champagne rhinestones and Parisian Flourish 3-D embossing folder are also new items that are part of the Parisian Blossoms Suite in the new catalog.

Stampin’ Up! High Tide Thinking of You Card

Hello and welcome to Amy’s Inkin Krew Blog Hop. This month’s theme is ‘Celebrate Summer‘ and I have a summer at the shore card featuring the Stampin’ Up! High Tide photopolymer stamp set, the Colorful Season photopolymer stamp set and Seasonal Layers dies.

I started by stamping the waves from the Stampin’ Up! High Tide stamp set in Blueberry Bushel ink on a Pool Party background. I sponged the ocean with Balmy Blue and used my white gel pen to add white highlights. I stamped the flock of seagulls in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the sun from the Stampin’ Up! Waterfront stamp set in Daffodil Delight ink on Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it and adhered it to the Pool Party panel.

I stamped the sand using Sahara Sand ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped second time below. I stamped several times to get the texture I was happy with. I sponged the bottom with Sahara Sand ink and stamped the Thinking of You sentiment in Early Espresso ink. I tore the top of the Very Vanilla piece and attached it to the main panel over the ocean. I stamped the sea grass in Old Olive ink, going over the ocean and attached the panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat.

I die cut two Adirondack chairs in Real Red and glued them together with the fine tipped glue pen and attached the chair to the panel with dimensionals. I used dimensionals to attach the panel to a Sahara Sand card Base.

For the inside, I stamped more sand, seagrass and seagulls on a Very Vanilla panel. I matted it with Blueberry Bushel and adhered it to the inside of the card.

I am usually a traditionalist, but I just love those bright colorful plastic Adirondack chairs that they have at the home improvement stores, so I had to have one for my shore card! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the Blog Hop.

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Smile Card

Good Morning! I hope you had a good weekend and are ready for the weekday grind. Today I have a card with a cheery Monday morning message, “Smile … It’s your time to shine!“. The card is made with the new Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane cling bundle. You can find the products used at the bottom of the post.

The layout for today’s card is inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #395. This simple sketch gave me a great opportunity to showcase the wonderful large Stitched Label in vellum. And the striped paper is just enough to break up the patterned background.

And the colors are inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #318. This combination is so fresh and summery and it gave me another opportunity to stamp patterned paper.

Be sure to check out the fantastic entries in these challenges for more card making inspiration.

I started today’s card by making another faux DSP – designer series paper or patterned paper. I used the daisy stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane and Stampin’ Up! Daisy Delight stamp sets and the leaf branch from the Stampin’ Up! Free as a Bird stamp set. On a sheet of Whisper White cardstock, I randomly stamped the large daisy in Petal Pink, the small daisy in Calypso Coral and the leaves in Mint Macaron. I lightly sponged each image in the respective colors and then I sponged the rest with So Saffron. Then I ran it through the Subtle embossing folder to add texture. The embossing really made it special!

I cut an extended piece of the striped paper from the Magnolia Lane DSP using the 1″ Stitched Rectangle die. I die cut the large fancy Stitched Label die from vellum and heat embossed the Smile sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set on Mink Macaron and die cut it using the smaller Stitched label Die.

I stamped three of the small daisies in Petal Pink on Whisper White and punched them out with the Medium Daisy Punch and curled the ends before attaching them together. I finished the daisy off with a non-SU clear enamel dot from my stash that I colored with the dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends and finally a Mint Macaron leaf branch from the Flourish dies. I arranged all the elements on the card front, matted it in Mint Macaron and then popped it on a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the shine sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set, added a strip of faux DSP and matted it in Mint Macaron.

Isn’t that a pretty and cheerful way to start a summer week? Thanks for visiting and I hope that you have a week where you do shine!
