Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Mother’s Day Card for the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop

Good Morning! Today is the day for the Monthly Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop and our theme for the month is ‘For the Girls/Ladies”. So my card uses the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress bundle to create a girly-girl Mother’s Day card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a small panel of Pear Pizzazz card stock with the Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the bottom of a panel of floral Best Dressed designer series paper with multipurpose liquid glue. Then I adhered the panel to a Daffodil Delight card base with multipurpose liquid glue. I stamped the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress in Old Olive ink on a strip of Whisper White and cut it out with the die from the Ornate Frames Dies. I cut the coordinating fancy background frame from Blackberry Bliss card stock and adhered the label on top. I adhered the layered label to the bottom of the card with multipurpose liquid glue and finished it with a Lovely Lipstick enamel dot.

I used the largest stitched circle die from the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut a circle in the dotted Best Dressed designer series paper. I adhered this to a Blackberry Bliss scalloped circle cut from the Layering Circles Dies and then to the card base with dimensionals. I stamped each of the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and cut them out with the coordinating die from the All Dressed Up Dies. I colored them with Lovely Lipstick, Light Mossy Meadow and Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends and adhered them to the dotted circle with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped two shoes, the perfume bottle and the lipstick from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black in on Whisper White and cut them out with the dies from the All Dressed Up Dies. I colored the shoes with Light Purple Posey, Light Petal Pink and Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends and glued them together. I colored the lipstick with Light Basic Black, Light and Dark Smoky Slate and Light and Dark Lively Lipstick Stampin’ Blends. I colored the perfume bottle with Light Pretty Peacock, Light So Saffron and Light Pool Party Stampin Blends. While coloring with the Stampin’ Blends, I used the color lifter to add highlights. I adhered the layered shoes, perfume bottle and lipstick to the circle with dimensionals. I added a Daffodil Delight ruched ribbon bow with a glue dot to finish the card front.

For the inside of the card, I trimmed a strip of the floral Best Dressed designer series paper to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and adhered it to the inside of the card. I made another flower die cut like the ones on the front and adhered it to the corner.

In retrospect, I think today’s card is a little over the top. Do you know anyone who owns a pair of lavender heels? But I also think we should go over the top for our moms, especially on Mother’s Day. So I’ll pick another time to show restraint.

Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I have another sneak peek from the new Stampin’ Up! January – June 2020 Mini Catalog. The Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress bundle has some cute girly images – flowers, lipstick, heels and a purse – along with some witty sentiments. And the coordinating All Dressed Up dies make a cute little purse that holds 3 x 3 cards. It is so cute!! 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 one of the floral images in Lovely Lipstick ink randomly along the bottom and sides of a Lovely Lipstick card base. Using the Stitched Rectangle die, I cut a panel of one of the floral papers in the Best Dressed DSP pack. I cut the large label from the Stitched Labels dies from vellum card stock and adhered it to the floral panel, applying the liquid glue under the circle and label. I cut a circle from Garden Green card stock using the large circle die from the Stitched Labels dies.

I stamped two shoes from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress photopolymer stamp set in Lovely lipstick on a panel of Whisper White and colored it with Light Cherry Cobbler and Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. I cut them out with the coordinating shoe die from the All Dressed Up dies and adhered them to the Garden Green circle along with 3 Lovely Lipstick enamel dots. I adhered the decorated circle to the vellum with dimensionals. I wrapped a length of Whisper White Baker’s twine around the panel and made a bow.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress stamp set in Lovely Lipstick on a strip of Whisper White and cut it out with the label die from the All Dressed Up dies. I stamped a flower on Whisper White and colored it with Light Cherry Cobbler, Light Flirty Flamingo, Light Shaded Spruce and Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out with the coordinating die and adhered it to the label with liquid glue. I adhered the label to the floral panel with dimensionals and the floral panel to the stamped Lovely Lipstick card base with dimensionals as well.

I decorated the inside by stamping the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Perennial Birthday stamp set in Lovely Lipstick on a Whisper White panel. I cut a strip of the Best Dressed DSP that was previously cut with the stitched rectangle dies and stuck it on the bottom of the panel before adhering it to the inside of the card. The Stitched Rectangle dies have stitching on both the inside and outside, so why not take advantage of this decorative element?

I love the way the vellum label adds a little something to the card front without obscuring the pretty paper. And I love all the cute elements in this bundle and can’t wait to make a purse! Because … actually I’m more of a purse girl than a shoe girl – but I know a lot of ladies who can’t resist another pretty pair of shoes! How about you?
