Stampin’ Up! Cherry Blossoms Thinking of You Card

Good Morning! Today I am thinking Spring and bringing you a Thinking of You card made with the Stampin’ Up! Cherry Blossoms dies that are part of the Parisian Blossoms suite and Forever Blossoms bundle in the new Mini Catalog. 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 panel of Pool Party card stock with the beautiful Parisian Flourish embossing folder and adhered it to a Pool Party card base with snail. I cut a panel of the Parisian Blossoms specialty designer series paper and adhered it to a Petal Pink mat. I cut one of each of the flowers in the Stampin’ Up! Cherry Blossoms dies from Whisper White card stock. Note that the smaller dies cut two flowers in each die and that there are two dies of each for the larger flowers. I cut a total of 8 flowers and for the smaller flowers, I was careful to save the centers. I sponged the edges of each flower with Petal Pink ink along with the centers of the larger flowers. I cut two sets of the stamen center dies from Smoky Slate card stock (note that the die cuts two stamen centers at a time).

I adhered a stamen to the center of each of the larger flowers with multipurpose liquid glue. I colored the tiny centers of the smaller flowers with the Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend. I stuck a glue dot behind each of the small flowers and adhered the centers to the flowers. I cut a branch from the Stampin’ Up! Cherry Blossoms die set from Soft Suede card stock. I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set in Smoky Slate ink on a scrap of Petal Pink card stock. The font is the same as the font in the Parisian Blossoms suite, so it goes well with the set and gives you alternative sentiments to use while keeping the same elegant feel. I cut the sentiment out with one of the Stitched Nested Labels dies.

I arranged the branch and label on the Parisian Blossoms DSP panel and adhered them with multipurpose liquid glue. I arranged the flowers and adhered the large ones with dimensionals and the small ones with glue dots. I finished off each flower center with a Champagne rhinestone and added a bow to the label made with the metallic edge Petal Pink ribbon. I adhered the Parisian Blossoms panel on the card front with dimensionals.

I kept the inside of the card simple with plenty of space to write a personal message. I adhered a strip of the Parisian Blossoms specialty designer series paper to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and attached it to the inside of the card.

The Parisian Blossoms suite is so beautiful and the Stampin’ Up! Cherry Blossoms dies allow you to create elegant and beautiful dimensional floral cards. With the unique shapes of each flower, you have a lot of movement and flexibility in arranging them on the branch.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms You Mean So Much Card

Good Morning! Today is the BIG day as the Stampin’ Up! January-June 2020 Mini Catalog is finally open for ordering! I am celebrating with a card made from the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms bundle. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut a panel of the Parisian Blossoms specialty designer series paper and adhered it to a Pool Party card base with multipurpose liquid glue. I embossed a panel of Petal Pink card stock with the Parisian Flourish 3-D embossing folder and adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the large cherry branch from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms stamp set with Sahara Sand ink on Thick Whisper White card stock. I colored the branch with the Petal Pink and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Cherry Blossoms dies. I adhered the branch to the card with dimensionals and accented the blooms with large champagne gemstones.


I made a bow with Linen Thread and attached it to the cherry blossoms with a glue dot. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on a strip of Pool Party card stock. I trimmed the end and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the branch from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock after stamping off. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of Parisian Blossoms specialty DSP and adhered it to a Petal Pink mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms and Cherry Blossoms dies come in a bundle for 10% off in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. It is just one of the new beautiful sets that are now available.

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.
