Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Petals Congratulations Card

Good Morning! Today is the big day when the new July – December 2021 Mini Catalog launches and the Second Sale A Bration begins! I used one of the new Sale A Bration products in my card today, the Beautifully Penned designer series paper that you can get for free with a $50 purchase (before shipping and handling). I paired it with the Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Petals bundle, and it coordinates beautifully! 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 Sale A Bration Beautifully Penned designer series paper to a Basic Black mat and wrapped a length of Glittered Black Organdy ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back. I adhered it to the front of a Basic Black card base.

I cut the floral die cut from the Penned Flowers Dies from Basic Black and the outline from Vellum card stock and adhered the black die cut to the vellum with glue dots. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Petals photopolymer stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with black embossing powder. I heat set the embossing powder with my heat tool and cut it out with the small Hippo & Friends die when it was cool. I also cut the two leaf clusters from Basic Black card stock.

I adhered the label to the black and Vellum floral die cut with glue dots and used black dimensionals to adhere them both to the card front. I used glue dots to adhere the leaves to the card front, tucking them under the label. I tied a bow with another length of black glittered organdy ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot and finished the card front with seven rhinestones.


For the inside of the card, I stamped the floral cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Petals stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink in the corners of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment and adhered a strip of Beautifully Penned DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Monotone Black and White cards are so striking and the Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned stamp set works beautifully with this palette. The Beautifully Penned designer series paper is a great Sale A Bration choice at the $50 purchase level!

Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Petals Congratulations Card

Good Morning! The purpose of today’s card is to highlight the the beautiful Hand Penned designer series paper. And of course I used the pretty Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Petals bundle for this feminine congratulations 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 pretty Hand Penned designer series paper to the front of a Pool Party card base. I cut a Blushing Bride panel with the second largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I cut the floral die cut from the Penned Flowers dies in the Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Petals bundle from Basic white and adhered it to the Blushing Bride scalloped rectangle with tiny dots of liquid glue.

I wrapped the scalloped rectangle die cut with a length of silver and Misty Moonlight twine and made a bow and then popped it onto the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Petals photopolymer stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on Blushing Bride and cut it out with the smallest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.

I adhered the label to the card front using glue dots and dimensionals. I finished the card front with three Soft Succulent jewels.


For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Petals stamp set in stamped off Blushing Bride ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink over the flowers. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Petals bundle is so beautiful and the Hand Penned designer series paper has many of the same images. It’s my current favorite and it’s going on sale tomorrow!
