Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Thinking of You Card

Good Monday Morning! It was such a somber weekend, I hope you had an opportunity to have a little fun. Today’s I have a simple card made with the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship bundle and the Beauty of the Earth designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Of Friendship photopolymer stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on Basic White and cut it out with the long skinny label die from the Beautiful Trees dies. I wrapped it with a length of linen thread and tied a bow on the end. I embossed a small panel of Misty Moonlight with the Bark 3D embossing folder and adhered the label to the embossed panel with dimensionals.

I adhered a small strip of the wood grain Beauty of the Earth designer series paper to a larger panel of DSP with liquid glue and adhered the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat. I adhered the label to the panel and popped the panel on the front of a Merry Merlot card base.

I cut a small Cinnamon Cider panel with the small bird die and adhered one of the birds to the card front on top of the label.


For the inside of the card, I stamped the tree trunk from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship stamp set on the side of a Basic White panel in stamped off Early Espresso ink. I stamped the detailed tree top in stamped off Misty Moonlight, Merry Merlot and full strength Crumb Cake, so that it would have a multi-color look. I stamped the sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink and adhered the other bird to the tree. I adhered a strip of Beauty of the Earth DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Beauty of the Earth designer series paper is so pretty and peaceful, so it doesn’t need much for a pretty card. I hope you like it and I hope you have a great week!

Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Fall Frenzy” and I’m seeing so many pumpkin decor items around so I decided to use the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins bundle for my card today. 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 Beauty of the Earth designer series paper to the front of a Cajun Craze card base. I made a horizontal stripe by layering strips of Cork, Harvest Meadow designer series paper, Cajun Craze and Granny Apple Green card stock and adhering it to the card front.

I stamped the pumpkins from the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins cling stamp set in Early Espresso on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating die. I colored them with Pumpkin Pie, Granny Apple Green and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and adhered them to the stripe with dimensionals and glue dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Greenery stamp set in Early Espresso on a Crumb Cake panel and cut it out with the small Tailor Made Tags die. I cut another tag from the Beauty of the Earth designer series paper and adhered it to the back of the Crumb Cake label. I colored a length of white baker’s twine with Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend and cut a length of Crumb Cake twine. I slipped the twine through the holes in the tags and tied a bow. I adhered the tag to the card front with glue dots and finished the card front with five green Decorative Matte Dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pumpkin vines on the bottom and colored them with Granny Apple Green, Ole Olive and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I adhered a strip of Beauty of the Earth DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

This is my first fall card of the year and it was hard to resist coloring these pumpkins with Stampin’ Blends. But the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins bundle has other cute pumpkin images, wonderful sentiments and gorgeous artsy pumpkin dies that will be loads of fun to play with – such a versatile set.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I made a simple friendship card with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship photopolymer stamp set and the pretty Beauty of the Earth designer series paper. I also used the fun Stitched with Whimsy dies to add a special touch to my card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week and here is the pretty sketch we are using today.

I embossed a panel of Beauty of the Earth designer series paper with the second largest Stitched With Whimsy dies – note that I used the pretty paper with the tree lines to make my stripes! I adhered the DSP to a Bumblebee mat with liquid glue and wrapped it twice with gold trim making a loopy bow on the right side, securing it with a glue dot.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of the Earth stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on a Bumblebee panel and embossed it with the small rectangle Stitched With Whimsy die. I adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and popped it on the tree panel with dimensionals.

I adhered the tree panel to the front of a Mossy Meadow card base with dimensionals and finished it with three Gilded Gems.

I stamped the sentiment from the Free as a Bird cling stamp set in Bumblebee ink in the lower corner of a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with the tree line paper from Beauty of the Earth designer series paper pack and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship stamp set has pretty sentiments celebrating friendship and the woodland background makes it appropriate for anyone.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Sneak Peek Video Tutorial

Good Morning! I hope you had a great weekend. Today I’m sharing a sneak peek of the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship bundle with a card that I made during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. This beautiful bundle lets you easily make trees with a watercolor look because of the two step stamps and the dies let you make different kinds of dimensional trees. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used. Note that all of the new In Colors and products will be available when the new 2021 – 2022 Annual Catalog goes live on May 4, 2021!

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.

I tore the top of the Mossy Meadow Beauty of the Earth designer series paper and adhered it to the bottom of the Misty Moonlight sky Beauty of the Earth panel. I stamped the shadow from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship photopolymer stamp set in the new Evening Evergreen ink (This is one of the new 2021-2023 In Colors that will be available on May 4, 2021) and adhered the panel to a Basic White mat. I cut the small tree trunk die from the Soft Suede tree bark paper and adhered it to the panel on the shadow. I adhered the panel to the front of a Cinnamon Cider card base.

I stamped a Basic White panel and label strip with the large tree top stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Blushing Bride. I stamped several times to cover the whole panel and strip. I then stamped the small spatter in Polished Pink – another new In Color from the upcoming catalog. I die cut the panel with the large open die from the Beautiful Trees dies in the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship bundle. I adhered the pink tree top to the card with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on stamped strip and cut it out with the long label die. I folded a length of Cinnamon Cider ribbon and adhered it to the card with glue dots and adhered the label on top with dimensionals. I cut two birds with the Beautiful Trees dies from Misty Moonlight and adhered them to the tree with glue dots.

For the inside, I stamped the tree top in Blushing Bride ink on the bottom of a Basic White panel. I stamped the tree trunk in stamped off Soft Suede ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship bundle is another fantastic tree themed bundle with beautiful stamps, dies and sentiments. It will be available in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog on May 4, 2021. Here’s a picture of the stamp set and dies along with the beautiful Beauty of the Earth designer series paper.
