Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Birthday Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers cling stamp set is a sweet floral stamp set that became super wonderful when Stampin’ Up! released the Fresh Cut Stems dies as part of the Perfect Partners Promotion. I used them both for today’s floral Birthday Card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Adhere a panel of Fresh Freesia Tea Boutique designer series paper to the right side of a Basic White mat. Cut a strip of Fresh Freesia card stock with the pretty lattice border die from the Fresh Cut Stems dies and adhere it to the left side of the mat with liquid glue. Emboss another strip of Fresh Freesia with the Gingham embossing folder and adhere it to the left side of the mat. Wrap a length of white baker’s twine twice around the panel and tie a bow. Adhere the panel to the front of a Fresh Freesia Card base.

Cut two of the berry branch dies from the Fresh Cut Stems dies from Soft succulent and adhere them to the card front with liquid glue. Stamp the large flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Smoky Slate ink on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. Color the flowers with Stampin’ Blends, using Daffodil Delight and Fresh Freesia on the Blossoms and light Old Olive and Soft Succulent on the leaves. Blend the color on the flowers using the light Daffodil Delight and light Fresh Freesia. Color the little flowers in the center with light Calypso Coral and adhere the panel to the card front with dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Smoky Slate on Basic White. Cut out the sentiment with the small label die from the Potted Succulents dies and adhere it to the card with dimensionals and glue dots. Finish the card with the pretty Fresh Freesia Opal Gems.

For the inside of the card, stamp the sweet sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Smoky Slate on a Basic White panel. Stamp the little sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Fresh Freesia ink next to the sentiment. Trim the bottom with a strip of Tea Boutique DSP and adhere the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set has such pretty floral images and goes well with other stamp sets. The Perfect Partners promotion ends in a couple of days, so if you are interested in getting the coordinating Fresh Cut Stems dies, act soon before they’re gone.

Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Thinking of You Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings cling stamp set is wonderful because it has the most used card sentiments in the prettiest fonts and different sizes! I paired it with the beautiful designer series paper in the Sale-A-Bration Wonderful World bundle for a simple thinking of you card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a Pear Pizzazz panel with the Pretty Flowers 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Pear Pizzazz card base with liquid glue. I adhered a panel of Melon Mambo Sale-A-Bration Wonderful World DSP to a Basic White mat and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I used the Rectangular Postage Stamp punch to punch out five small floral images from the Wonderful World designer series paper and selected four to use for the front. I punched out 4 postage stamps from Basic White and adhered the floral images to the front with liquid glue. I adhered them to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the pretty sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings stamp set in Versamark ink on Pear Pizzazz. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated the powder with my heat tool until shiny and cut it out with the long banner die from the Stylish Shapes dies. I adhered the banner to the card front with glue dots and finished it with a Fresh Freesia opal dot.

For the inside of the card, I trimmed the bottom of a Basic White panel with a Melon Mambo strip of Wonderful World DSP. I adhered the fifth punched flower to the lower corner and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Sale-A-Bration Wonderful World bundle is fabulous and the DSP designs are so versatile. I wouldn’t have thought I could make such a pretty card just by punching out pretty flower images! And the sweet sentiments in the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings stamp set are the perfect compliment. But Sale-A-Bration beginning to wind down, so shop soon to make sure you get the items you want before they sell out!
