Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Friendship Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing another video that I did yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. For this card, I found a pretty card from last year’s catalog that uses the Stampin’ Up! Love What You Do stamp set. Since the DSP from the card is no longer available, I looked for an alternative and found one in the new Parisian Blossoms specialty designer series paper from the new Mini Catalog that will be available on January 3, 2020. So I decided to make my updated version using the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms stamp set with the Parisian Blossoms DSP to compliment the wonderful sentiment from the Love What You Do stamp set.

Here’s the Facebook Live video where I show how to make the card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube channel and you can view it here.

I started by running a panel of Pool Party card stock through the Tufted embossing folder and adhering it to a Pool Party card base with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the beautiful Parisian Blossoms specialty designer series paper to the card front. I realized afterward that I didn’t say anything about the beautiful touches of champagne foil running through the paper – it really makes it special! I trimmed the end of the a strip of the reverse Petal Pink paper and adhered it on top.

I stamped the single cherry blossom stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms stamp set in Pool Party ink in a random pattern on a panel of Whisper White card stock. I stamped off each flower once before stamping it on the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Love What you Do stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink over the blossoms. Using the second largest circle from the Stitched Shapes dies, I cut out the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to a pearlized doily with glue dots. I adhered 3 sets of vellum leaves cut with the leaf punch to the back of the doily. I tied a knot in a short length of polka dot tulle and made a bow using Whisper White baker’s twine. I adhered the bow and ribbon to the back of the doily with a glue dot. I adhered the layered label to the card front with dimensionals. I finished off the card front by adding 3 pearls to the label.

On the inside of the card, I stamped more cherry blossoms in Pool Party ink on a panel of Whisper White after stamping off. I added a strip of the Parisian blossoms to the bottom and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms and Parisian Blossoms specialty designer series paper will be available when the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalog makes it’s debut on January 3, 2020. The Stampin’ Up! Love What You Do stamp set is currently available with the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and in my Online Store.

Stampin’ Up! Love What You Do with Pressed Petals Thank You Cards

Good Morning! Today I have a set four Thank You cards made with the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper and stamped with the pretty Thank You sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love What You Do photopolymer stamp set. I feel that I can never have enough thank you cards. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

In the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP set, there is a sheet that has a bunch of different floral panels. I took the four largest and cut them down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and adhered them to a mat in coordinating colors – Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Merry Merlot and Flirty Flamingo.

I attached each to a Sahara Sand card base with liquid glue.

I took a strip of the burlap paper and stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love What You Do stamp set in Soft Suede. I matted the sentiment in the same color as the main mat and adhered a strip of White Flax ribbon behind it with snail. I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals.

For a little bling, I finished off each card with three crumb cake sequins.

I left the inside pretty simple, just added a coordinating mat to a Whisper White panel and adhering it to the inside of the card

Pretty Paper – check; Ribbon – check; Bling – check; Dimensionals – check. Basic elements for a fancy handmade card all accounted for in a simple easy to do project. I even included stamping! Taking advantage of the beautiful Pressed Petals specialty designer series paper gave me a quick way to replenish my stock of Thank You cards!

I’ll be doing my Facebook Live again this Sunday at 1:00. I missed it last weekend as I was returning from Stampin’ Up! On Stage. I received my November Paper Pumpkin this week – the Winter Wonders tags kit, and I will show you the tags and make some alternative design cards. Here’s my page.

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Beautiful Day in Fall Card

Good Morning! Today I used the pretty maple leaf stamps in the versatile Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Seasonal Layers dies to make a fall card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for today’s blog hop is Fall Frenzy. Unbelievable that fall is just around the corner – the year has flown by!

I used an old technique – using re-inkers with baby wipes – in making this card and you can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with cardstock sizes.

I started the card by creating the background. I took a baby wipe, folded it and added drops of Old Olive, So Saffron, Calypso Coral and Cherry Cobbler ink to create a faux “ink pad”. I took the little solid maple leaf stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons stamp set and inked it using the baby wipe and randomly stamped the leaves on a Very Vanilla panel. I rotated the stamp so that each leaf would pick up different color combinations. It resembles autumn leaves turning color before falling to the ground.

I sponged the areas between the leaves lightly with Crumb Cake and Cajun Craze ink to give it some depth. It’s hard to see, but I then took the larger outline maple leaf stamp and inked it with Delicata Golden Glitz metallic ink which will be available on Sept 4 in the 2019 Holiday Catalog and stamped it randomly on the panel to add some golden sparkle. I finally ran the panel through the Woodland embossing folder to add texture and mounted it on a Cajun Craze mat and an Old Olive Card Base.

I then stamped the It’s a beautiful day sentiment from the Love What You Do stamp set in Versamark ink on a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set it. I die cut it using the large label from the Wild Rose die set and adhered it to the card with dimensionals.

I die cut maple leaves using the Seasonal Layers dies from Calypso Coral, Old Olive and So Saffron scraps. I decorated the Calypso Coral and Old Olive leaves using the larger outline stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons stamp set and Delicata Golden Glitz metallic ink. I sponged the So Saffron leaf with Calypso Coral and Old Olive ink to echo the leaves on the background. I also die cut the large outline leaf in Gold glitter paper (non-SU). I added some gold metallic thread behind the larger leaves and adhered the leaves to the label with glue dots. I finished it off with three clear epoxy dots.

I decorated the inside of the card adding a strip of the baby wipe stamped Very Vanilla to the bottom of a Very Vanilla cardstock panel. I added the large outline maple leaf stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons stamp set in Delicata Golden Glitz metallic ink. I matted it in Cajun Craze and added it to the inside of the card. I decorated the envelope by stamping the outline maple leaf in the lower left corner of a Very Vanilla envelope using Cajun Craze ink.

The touches of Delicata Golden Glitz ink with the Gold embossing and Gold glitter paper add some nice subtle sparkle to the card. Maple trees are the best for dramatic fall foliage color, and I’m ready to enjoy those beautiful fall days that are just around the corner!
