Bloom by Bloom Congratulations

Today’s card is a feminine congratulations card that is bold and beautiful using the Bloom by Bloom stamp set.

Using thick Whisper White as a card base, I trimmed a piece of the Happiness Blooms Memories and More card pack to make the background. On a panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the bold tulip flower in Lovely Lipstick and Garden Green. I matted it with Night of Navy cardstock and used the Night of Navy baker’s twine to wrap the panel and tie a bow.

I used clear Wink of Stella to add some shimmer to the flower and used dimensionals to pop the flower panel on the card base.

I cut a banner from a piece of Night of Navy scrap and stamped the congratulations greeting from the Well Said stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set.

I used Whisper White cardstock for the inside of the card, trimmed it with the remaining Happiness Blooms Memories and More card and a floral sticker and matted it in Night of Navy before adding it to the card base.

Both the Bloom and Bloom stamp set and Happiness Blooms Memories and More card pack are on the retirement list, so we will have to say good bye to them soon. Before then, I’m going to enjoy using them to make bold, strong and vibrant floral cards.

Thanks for visiting!

Stampin’ Up! products used in this project:



Springtime Lovely as a Tree

For today’s card I used a longtime Stampin’ Up! favorite that is retiring, Lovely as a Tree. In the current annual catalog they show a technique where you color embossing paste with a re-inker and dab it for a textured look. I was inspired by the new Spring growth on the trees nearby and decided to try it using light green ink.

The only light green re-inker I have is the retired Stampin’ Up! color Pistachio Pudding, so I decided to use that since I also have an ink pad in the same color. I wanted to use a light green to represent new leaves in Spring. So I put some embossing paste in a little cup with some drops of re-inker and mixed it up. I stamped the tree line in Soft Suede on a panel of Whisper White and sponged the ground in Pistachio Pudding and the sky in Soft Sky (another retired color). Then I dabbed the tinted embossing paste on the tree branches.

I also used another oldie but goodie for the background paper – Everyday Enchantment designer series paper.  The blue swallows on the paper really go well with the Spring theme of the card.  I cut mats out of Old Olive cardstock (luckily still available) for the background and picture panel. I mounted the background panel and mat on a Pear Pizzaz card base. I cut a little banner and stamped the sentiment with versamark ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set.

The new Old Olive linen thread was wrapped twice around the picture panel and tied in a bow before popping it on the background with dimensionals. Notice how I flush mounted it on the left side?

The inside of the card is trimmed in more of the Everyday Enchantment dsp and matted again with Old Olive.

It’s sad to say good bye to iconic favorites such as Lovely as a Tree, and it was fun to team it up with other retired oldies but goodies from my stash. The tinted embossing paste was a great new technique to add texture and color to the trees and was pretty easy.

There are still fabulous tree stamp sets that Stampin’ Up! will carry over into the new catalog such as Winter Woods and Rooted in Nature. I think the tinted embossing paste technique will work well on these sets, too.

Thanks for visiting and helping me bid farewell to Lovely as a Tree!

Geared Up Garage Birthday Card

Today’s card is a masculine birthday card using the Geared Up Garage Stamp Cling Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions catalog.

My card is inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #383.

I started with a Basic Gray card base and used the oil stain stamp on the top of the card to give it texture.

I added a strip of the hubcap paper from the Classic Garage DSP. I didn’t want to use the silver foil for the gears because I wanted a more worn look instead of shiny, so I used some gray shimmer paper from Michaels and die cut the big gears for the black frame and the scallops on the right edge. I love the look of frames on cards, and how the gears allow the background to come through.

I stamped and colored the sports car red of course, and die cut it and popped it on the gear frame with dimensionals.

I put the greetings on the inside of the card, adding the ‘Happy Birthday’ from the Birthday Banners stamp set. The retro look of this font goes great with the vintage sports car. I also added a red gas can and some extra nuts and oil stains.

Beautiful Bouquet Mother’s Day for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

I am excited to participate in my first Inkin’ Krew blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products! It’s an honor to join this very talented team. The theme for this month is ‘feminine’, so I created a pink floral Mother’s Day card made with the Beautiful Bouquet Photopolymer stamp set and Bouquet Bunch Framelits dies.

My Card was inspired by the beautiful card in this post by Laura Mackie. Starting with a card base of Flirty Flamingo, I took a piece of Blushing Bride and embossed it with the elegant Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions embossing folder and matted it with the gorgeous Grapefruit Grove Foil sheet from Sale-A-Bration.

I stamped flowers from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Flirty Flamingo and Blushing Bride and die cut them with their coordinating Bouquet Bunch dies along with some leaves from Pear Pizzaz and Garden Green. I die cut some flower clusters from the Grapefruit Grove foil for a little shine and arranged them in a little bouquet on the side of the Blushing Bride panel. I topped it off with a white satin bow and pearl accents for the flower centers.

I stamped the ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ sentiment from the retired Oh So Succulent stamp set in Blushing Bride on a white banner to the bouquet panel and popped it on the card base with dimensionals.

The inside of the card is accented with die cuts leftover from the bouquet.

The shine on that Grapefruit Grove foil is amazing, almost iridescent! I hope you like it as much as I do. What are you working on for Mother’s Day?

Abstract Impressions So Happy for You Butterfly Card

Before I share today’s card, I want to tell you about a new product line that Stampin’ Up! is starting today called Storage by Stampin’ Up! Information is on my Promotions page with a quick intro at the bottom of this post.

Today’s card celebrates springtime happy occasions in navy and yellow and features the butterfly die cut from the Abstract Impressions bundle.

My card is inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #381:

This is such a simple sketch and perfect for showcasing some pretty Designer Series Paper (dsp).

Starting with a Night of Navy card base, I added a piece of the Garden impressions dsp along side a strip of So Saffron cardstock embossed with one of the Petal Pairs embossing folder. I die cut the butterfly and accented it with some older So Saffron enamel dots from my stash and attached it with mini glue dots. I stamped the greeting from the Abstract Impressions stamp set on a scrap piece of Blueberry Bushel and used the Banner Punch to make a flag and attached it to the card front.

The inside of the card is trimmed with a thin strip of the Garden Impressions DSP and a die cut flower from the set.

I love butterfly die cuts, especially the delicate and intricate lacy wings. They don’t need much to make a big statement. I hope you enjoyed today’s card!
