Stampin’ Up! True Beauty Just Because Card

Good Morning! There are so many pretty floral stamp sets and bundles in the current Annual Catalog and one of my favorites is the Stampin’ Up! True Beauty bundle. It has several watercolor flower cling stamps with coordinating dies and pretty sentiments. I used it with the beautiful Awash in Beauty designer series paper and painted posies embossing folder to make today’s card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the sprig from the Stampin’ Up! True Beauty stamp set in Old Olive ink on a Soft Sea Foam panel. I embosses the stamped panel with the Painted Posies 3D embossing folder and trimmed it down to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″. Note that this beautiful embossing folder has lots of details at the bottom, so the bottom shrinks more after embossing, especially for landscape panels. I didn’t want this effect so I just trimmed it. I adhered an Awash In Beauty designer series paper strip to the bottom with liquid glue and wrapped it with a length of Soft Sea Foam ribbon. I tied a bow, and adhered the panel to the front of a Soft Sea Foam card base.

I cut the two sprig dies from the Organic Beauty dies in the Stampin’ Up! True Beauty bundle from Old Olive and adhered them to the card front with glue dots. I stamped the small leaf pair twice using Old Olive ink on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating die. I snipped one of the leaves and adhered three leaves to the card front with liquid glue, tucking one leaf under the bow.. I stamped the flower in Blackberry Bliss on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I popped it on the leaves with dimensionals. I stamped three of the small flowers in Calypso Coral on Basic White, cut them out with the coordinating die and popped them on the die cut sprig with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! True Beauty stamp set in Old Olive on Basic White and cut it out with the pretty label die from the Potted Succulents dies. I finished the card with iridescent pearls.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! True Beauty stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on Basic White. I masked it and stamped the leaves in Old Olive. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Awash In Beauty DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

I cased this card from a similar card in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, but added a few of my own touches. Catalogs are a great source of inspiration for card designs. The Stampin’ Up! True Beauty bundle is a beautiful set and I didn’t even use the pretty lattice die – I’ll have to save it for next time!
