Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry Friendship Card

Good Morning! I used the pretty Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry photopolymer stamp set and the pretty Sweet Symmetry designer series paper to make a fun friendship card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry stamp set in Bumblebee on a on a Basic White panel. I stamped the stem and leaves in Just Jade under the flower and adhered the panel to a Night of Navy mat.

I adhered a panel of Sweet Symmetry designer series paper to a Bumblebee mat and adhered it to the front of a Night of Navy card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry stamp set in Night of Navy on a Calypso Coral panel. I adhered the panel to a Night of Navy mat.

I adhered the large flower panel to the card front with dimensionals and adhered the label under it with glue dots. I accented the flower with small Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestones.


For the inside of the card, I stamped the medium flower from the Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry stamp set in Bumblebee ink on the side of a Basic White panel. I stamped the stem and two sets of the small leaves in Just Jade ink under the flower. I stamped the sentiment next to the flower in Night of Navy ink and adhered a strip of the Sweet Symmetry DSP to the bottom. I adhered the panel to a Bumblebee mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry stamp set is real pretty with graphic floral images and wonderful sentiments. I love the colorful Sweet Symmetry designer series paper. It’s full of pretty small floral designs in geometric patterns. It’s so happy and it’s on sale at 15% off through August 2!

Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today’s card is made with the Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry stamp set and the pretty Sweet Symmetry designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week and here is the sketch we are using:

I adhered the pretty Sweet Symmetry designer series paper to the front of a Calypso Coral card base with liquid glue. I cut a Basic White panel with the fourth smallest Stitched Rectangles die and used my Stamparatus to stamp the images on the die cut panel. I was so focused on trying to be symmetric because of both the name of the stamp set and the symmetry of the card sketch! The Stamparatus was a big help in lining up the flowers, stems and leaves and making sure the two little side flowers were symmetric with the big one!

I stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry photopolymer stamp set in Calypso Coral ink and the stem and leaves in Just Jade ink in the center of the die cut panel. I stamped the little flowers on the side in Bumblebee and the little leaves and stems in Just Jade. I adhered the panel to a Just Jade mat.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder until it was shiny. I cut the sentiment out with the second smallest long Stitched Rectangles die and adhered it to the bottom of the stamped flowers with glue dots. I adhered the panels to the card front with dimensionals and adhered sequins to the flowers. I colored some white crinkle ribbon with the light Calypso Coral Stampin Blend, tied a bow and adhered the bow to the center flower stem with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, I adhered a strip of the Sweet Symmetry designer series paper to the bottom of a Basic White panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I love this sentiment from the Stampin Up! In Symmetry stamp set! It is so happy and full of energy and can be used for any occasion or just a note card.

Stampin’ Up! Seascape You’re the Best Card

Good Morning! Here’s a fun undersea card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Seascape bundle. And I made the background with the splotchy ink stamp from the Artistically Inked cling stamp set! I got this idea from my friend Karen Finkle, who made this card using the same technique – be sure to check it out! This was a fun to make and I’m so pleased with how it came out! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped a panel with the splotchy ink stamp from the Artistically inked stamp set, using Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Pool Party inks on a Basic White panel. I used the darker colors on the bottom getting lighter as it goes up. I used some embossing buddy on the lower corner (I was too impatient to wait for the ink to completely dry) and stamped the coral from the Stampin’ Up! Seascape cling stamp set in Versamark ink. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heat set the embossing powder until it was shiny. Be careful to heat the whole thing – it’s a large image with lots of coral branches and its easy to miss spots. Then I stamped the seaweed along the bottom in Old Olive and wiped off the excess ink from the embossed coral with a tissue. I finished the background by stamping three jellyfish from the Whale Done stamp set around the top in Fresh Freesia ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Encircled in Friendship stamp set in night of Pacific Point ink on a Pool Party panel and cut it out with Messages die. Then I stamped the Artistically Inked splotchy ink stamp again in Pacific Point on a Basic White Strip and cut it out with the banner label from the Messages die. I adhered the banner to the stamped undersea background panel and adhered the panel to a Basic White mat. I adhered the stamped label to the banner and popped the whole panel onto the front of a Pacific Point card base.

I cut out the seahorse from the Sea Life dies in the Stampin’ Up! Seascape bundle from Evening Evergreen card stock, and carefully cut the seahorse outline out. Note that the die is designed so that the seahorse is not detached from the background. I brushed the seahorse with clear Wink of Stella to give it some sparkle and covered it with Shimmery Crystal Effects to make it shine. Check out the reflections in the last picture! I let the Shimmery Crystal Effects dry for an hour before handling the seahorse. I cut up small pieces of dimensionals and used them to adhere the seahorse to the card front. I colored a length of white crinkle ribbon with Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend, made a small bow and adhered it to the card under the label. I finished the card front with three opal rounds.


For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Seascape stamp set in Pacific Point ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the seaweed a couple of times in Old Olive and the fish in Calypso Coral. I stamped another jellyfish from the Whale Done stamp set in the upper corner in Fresh Freesia. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The seahorse from Stampin’ Up! Seascape bundle is really beautiful with all the intricate die cuts! And didn’t the Artistically Inked splotchy stamp make a wonderful background for it?

Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends Card

Good Morning! I hope you’re getting ready for a fabulous holiday weekend! And if you’re planning to spend some time crafting, today’s card is for you. I used the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Create with Friends photopolymer stamp set with the pretty Sweet Symmetry designer series paper to make a simple note card celebrating creativity. 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 Sweet Symmetry designer series paper to the front of a Flirty Flamingo card base with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends stamp set in night of Navy ink on a Flirty Flamingo panel and cut it out with the third smallest Stitched So Sweetly die. I popped it onto the card front with dimensionals.

I cut out the smallest detailed butterfly from the Brilliant Wings dies from Just Jade and adhered it to the card front with a glue dot. I finished off the butterfly with a small sequin and adhered three more sequins around the label.


For the inside of the card, I simply adhered a strip of Sweet Symmetry DSP to the bottom of a Basic White panel and adhered it to the inside of the card. This leaves plenty of room to write a personal message.

The Stampin’ Up! Hand Create With Friends stamp set is really great with big, fun sentiments for many different occasions. It’s perfect as for a simple card that uses pretty designer series paper.
