Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Hello Friendship Card

Happy Friday! The Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer is one of my favorite floral stamp sets from the Annual Catalog with it’s pretty floral images and sweet sentiments. So I was thrilled that Stampin’ Up! came out with the coordinating Summer Shadows dies for Sale A Bration! Today I use both of these items for a pretty Black and White friendship card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the striped Beautifully Penned designer series paper to a panel of the floral DSP and then adhered them both to a Basic White mat. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Basic Black card base.

I cut the third largest scalloped rectangle from the Scalloped Contours dies from Basic White card stock. I embossed another Basic White panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the scalloped rectangle die cut and popped it on the card front with dimensionals. I cut a panel of Basic Black with the detail flowers and leaf cluster from the Summer Shadows dies and adhered the small flower and leaf cluster to the embossed panel with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White and cut it out with the scalloped oval in the Messages die. I popped the label on with dimensionals and popped the large die cut flower on top using pieces of black dimensionals. I finished the card front with matte black dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the top of the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment next to the flower and adhered a strip of the floral Beautifully Penned DSP to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer stamp set looks great in black and white and the Summer Shadows dies extends it so nicely with the outline dies that cut out the stamped images and the detailed dies that cut out flowers that coordinate. Have a great weekend!!
