Stampin’ Up! Blossoms in Bloom Thank You Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Thank You card made with the Stampin’ Up! Blossoms in Bloom stamp set that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial Saturday afternoon. I made a colorful modern style card with the fabulous floral stamp set and I used the fun Playing with Patterns 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 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.

My card sketch was inspired by this week’s sketch at Fab Friday, FabFri193

I started by stamping the large flower arrangement from the Stampin’ Up! Blossoms in Bloom stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock using Calypso Coral ink. I stamped the flower centers in Night of Navy ink, the leaves in Calypso Coral and the small flowers in Crushed Curry. I cut it out with one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies. I stamped the Thank You sentiment in Night of Navy ink on a strip of Calypso Coral card stock and cut it out with a Tasteful Label die. I cut a strip of Crushed Curry card stock with the pretty scalloped border die from the Peony Dies.

I adhered a colorful striped panel of Playing With Patterns designer series paper to a Night of Navy Mat and adhered it to the front of a Calypso Coral card base. I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the stamped floral panel to a Night of Navy mat. I adhered the pretty Crushed Curry scalloped die cut border behind the bottom of the panel and adhered it to the front of the card.

I adhered the label to the floral panel with glue dots. I finished off the card with Purple Posy Resin Dots and a Calypso coral bow.

For the inside, I stamped a portion of the large flower arrangement in stamped off Calypso Coral ink on a Whisper White panel. Then I stamped some leaves in Crushed Curry, flower centers in Night of Navy and an additional Crushed Curry small flower. I adhered a strip of Playing with Patterns DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered it to the inside of the card. I think I stamped it a little low and then got nervous because I was stamping live and didn’t get a clean stamp of the flower center. In hind sight, I should have checked out how it looked with the border strip and seeing that it was too low, I wish I had flipped and stamped the opposite corner with more of the flowers showing. Now I know better for next time…

The Stampin’ Up! Blossoms in Bloom stamp set has really pretty flowers and with the Distinktive™ style, you get many shades of ink when you stamp, so that it resembles a watercolor painting. Today’s card shows it’s versatility, because I just used a tiny portion of the large stamp, and it looks great. And I didn’t even use the fabulous dies!

Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches Smile Car Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Smile card made with the Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial Saturday afternoon. I used the sweet stamped birds with the nest and the smile sentiment from the Lovely You 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.

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 made a sample card with a Sahara Sand card base and a distressed background, but I felt it was a bit dark, so the card I made in the video and pictured here is a brighter color palette. I embossed a Soft Sea Foam Panel with the Woodland embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base. I stamped and die cut the eggs in Balmy Blue and nest in crumb cake. I also die cut two branches in Garden Green and a background panel in Pool Party using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I wanted the birds to be bluebirds like the ones in my back yard, so I stamped the male in Pacific Point and the female in Gray Granite and stamped off Pacific Point. I used the Light Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend and Color Lifter to color the birds’ breasts and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I adhered the die cut branches and Pool Party die cut with liquid glue. I popped the nest on with dimensionals and filled it with the eggs. I tucked the female bird on the side with liquid glue and popped the male bird on with dimensionals. I adhered the Pool Party panel on the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the smile sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Soft Suede ink on a strip of Sahara Sand card stock and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. I adhered some linen ribbon behind it and popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped a male blue bird on a Whisper White panel using the Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches stamp set and added another Garden Green die cut branch. I gave him some legs and adhered the panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches bundle is so versatile! There is a leafy circle die cut for a window along with a leafy border. It also has a funky pair of die cut birds that would go very well with an abstract modern card and the 3-step birds allow you to combine them to create color combinations! We’ll explore these throughout the summer as we enjoy our feathered friends in our back yards!

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Let’s Celebrate You Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Celebrate You card made with the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial Saturday afternoon. I made a sweet country style card with the fabulous sunflower and dies and I used many of the new In Colors. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post 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 cutting out the outline large sunflower and the flower center from the Sunflower Dies with Cinnamon Cider card stock. I stamped the large sunflower from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers with Bumblebee ink on Bumblebee card stock and cut it out with the coordinating die. I adhered the Cinnamon Cider outline flower die cut to the stamped flower with dimensionals along the center rim. I adhered the center on top with dimensionals.

I cut three of the outline leaf die cuts from Shaded Spruce card stock and stamped three large leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers cling stamp set in Just Jade ink on Just Jade card stock. I cut the leaves out with the coordinating die and adhered the Shaded Spruce outline die cuts on top with liquid glue. I cut the two leaf sprig accents from the Sunflowers Dies from Whisper White card stock and began to assemble the card front. I adhered the panel of Flowers for Every Season designer series paper to a Bumblebee mat and then to the center of a Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color designer series paper panel. I adhered the layered DSP to a Cinnamon Cider card base.

I adhered the layered leaves and Whisper white sprigs to the card front with liquid glue and adhered the sunflower with multipurpose liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a strip of Misty Moonlight. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set until shiny. I fussy cut the sentiment and adhered it over the flower with glue dots and the DSP panel with dimensionals. I made a bow with the Bumblebee gingham ribbon and attached it with a glue dot and finished the flower center with Cinnamon Cider enamel dots.

I stamped the large sunflower from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Bumblebee ink on Whisper White after stamping off twice. I adhered a strip of Flowers for Every Season DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

The Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers bundle is the best sunflower stamp and die set that I have seen. The stamped images are gorgeous with realistic detail and the outline die cut overlay both takes it to the next level by providing dimension and fun.

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Friendship Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a friendship card made with the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. The Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony bundle is one of the new sets in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. I’ve grown peonies in my garden for several years now and they’re one of my favorite flowers. Last week, they started to bloom, but we had some severe storms over the last few days, so they aren’t so pretty anymore ☹️. So I’ll wait for them to bloom next year to get some pictures. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post 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 cutting a panel of Gray Granite card stock with the pretty scalloped border die from the Peony Dies. This die cuts the scalloped border and embosses a loopy trim at the same time – it’s so feminine and pretty. I stamped the sweet friend sentiment by covering the parts of the sentiment stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony cling stamp set with tape before inking it up with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. After inking, I removed the tape (be careful because it can be very messy) and stamped the bottom of the Gray Granite panel. I adhered the stamped panel to a Peony Garden designer series paper panel and then to a Petal Pink mat with multipurpose liquid glue.

I die cut the leaves and flower parts with the dies from the Peony Dies from Whisper White card stock. I sponged the leaves with Mossy Meadow ink and then the adhered the leaves together. I colored the stamen with Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and I used Petal Pink ink to sponge the flower sections. I made the ink most intense in the back of the flower and in the front section where you can see the inside of the petals.

I assembled the flower with multipurpose liquid glue on the lower edge of each petal. First I adhered the Daffodil Delight stamen to the smallest flower section and then applied the glue to the bottom and carefully slipped it into the next larger flower section, lining up the bottom edge. I repeated this until the flower was assembled. It sounds complicated, but it’s fairly easy because the bottom edges have curves that are pretty simple to line up. I adhered the leaves to the Gray Granite strip with multipurpose liquid glue and adhered the flower with dimensionals on the top and multipurpose liquid glue on the bottom. I added three of the gorgeous Elegant Faceted Gems and a Gray Granite shimmer ribbon bow. I adhered the decorated panel to the front of a Petal Pink card base.

I stamped the medium peony from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony to the bottom of a Whisper White panel after stamping off and adhered a strip of the Peony Garden designer series paper to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

The gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony bundle is so fantastic! The stamps are gorgeous and each image has a coordinating die so there is no need to fussy cut. There is a variety of sentiments that are really sweet and pretty and even a background stamp for adding texture. And finally the 3D die cut peony flower is absolutely amazing! It is definitely a set that you will want to add to your card making tool chest! And if you have been thinking about joining Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator, consider getting this as your FREE bundle this month!

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!! 😊
