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! A Good Man Father’s Day Card

Good Morning! Today’s card is a simple masculine card made with the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man stamp set for Father’s Day. This is a wonderful set with family themes that is great for masculine cards. And it’s going to be carried over to the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog! Yay!! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the image of the father and daughter from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I used this image as it reminds me of my son and granddaughter. I colored the image with Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Flirty Flamingo, Smoky Slate and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I adhered the stamped and colored image to a Basic Black mat.

I adhered a panel of the In Good Taste designer series paper from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog that will be available on June 3 to a Basic Black mat and adhered it to a Gray Granite card base with dimensionals. I cut a panel of Sahara Sand card stock with the Stitched Rectangle die and ran it through the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder. I adhered it to the card base with liquid glue.

I adhered the layered art panel on the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Sahara Sand and cut it out with the smallest Layering Circle Die. I used the smallest stitched shape die to cut another circle from Basic Black ink and adhered the sentiment to it. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and liquid glue under the art panel. I finished card front with three Designer Elements.

I decorated the inside by stamping the heart from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man stamp set in the upper corner of a Whisper White panel and trimming the bottom with a strip of the In Good Taste DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

The Stampin’ Up! A Good Man is great set for creating masculine cards for any occasion. It is a must have for stampers with lots of men in your families.

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.
