Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips Card with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! April Showers Bring May Flowers! I have been saying this every year since I was a child. We had some rain last weekend and it’s still cool here in Pennsylvania, so I’m grateful it wasn’t snow. But daffodils are blooming and soon the tulips will be as well, so it’s time for tulip cards. I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips bundle for a thinking of you card in my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon to make this card. You can find the supplies I used in my video at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the link to the Facebook Live video from yesterday. I also posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel and you can view it here if you prefer. I’ve included it in this post:

I cut a Basic White panel with the second largest Scalloped Contours dies and adhered a panel of the beautiful Flowering Fields designer series paper to the front. I cut a Poppy Parade panel with the three tulip dies – the wide triple panel petals, the medium double petal panel and the small single petal pane. I adhered the small single petal panel to the inside of the triple panel with liquid glue. I put bits of dimensionals on the top of the medium panel and liquid glue on the bottom and adhered it to the middle and folded over the side panels of the large panel, securing the bottom with liquid glue.

I cut the skinny stem and adhered it to the DSP with the fine tip glue pen. I adhered the tulip flower on top of the stem with glue dots and cut one of each of the leaf dies from the Tulips dies in the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips bundle and adhered them on either side of the stem with glue dots. I adhered the panel to the front of a Pool Party card base with dimensionals.

I punched the ends of the Petal Pink panel with the curly side of the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips stamp set in Poppy Parade on top. I adhered the sentiment to the card front with dimensionals and made a bow with sheer Pool Party ribbon. I adhered the bow to the stem with a glue dot and finished the card with Pool Party Rhinestones.

For the inside of the card, I stamped two tulips from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips stamp set in Flirty Flamingo on the sides of a Basic White panel. I stamped the detailed stamp over the stamped tulips in stamped off Flirty Flamingo and added Memento Tuxedo Black flower centers and Pear Pizzazz stems and leaves. I trimmed the bottom with Flowering Fields DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Both the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips bundle and Flowering Fields DSP are beautiful items that are perfect for spring cards. And they’re so versatile, and result in beautiful hand crafted items.

For my Facebook live, I had a sample card with a Basic White flower that was sponged with Petal Pink for a very light pink card. Here it is with the card I made in the video. I think I like them both.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Thinking Of You Card

Good Morning! Today I have a floral card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Bundle. This is a sweet, versatile bundle and I chose to stamp and color the coneflowers for today’s card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed panel of Harvest Meadows designer series paper with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Soft Suede mat. I cut a cork panel with a Stitched Rectangles die and adhered it to the layered panel before adhering the panel to the front of a Poppy Parade card base.

I applied some adhesive sheet to the back of an Early Espresso panel and cut out the branch from the Harvest dies. I peeled off the adhesive sheet cover and adhered the branch to the card front. I cut a small piece of Diamond Weave ribbon and adhered it with glue dots.

I stamped the coneflowers from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest cling stamp set in Early Espresso on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I colored it with Old Olive, Calypso Coral, Poppy Parade, Cinnamon Cider and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends and adhered it to the card with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Versamark ink on Soft Suede and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my Heat Tool and cut it out with the small long Stitched Rectangles die. I adhered the label to the card with dimensionals and glue dots and finished the card front with three brushed metallic gems.


For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Early Espresso ink on Basic White and stamped the coneflowers on the side after stamping off three times. I embossed another strip of Harvest Meadows designer series paper with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

With summer waning, the coneflowers are prominent in the gardens and the red ones are my favorite (I guess I need to get some). The Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest coneflowers captures the beauty and feeling of these hot days perfectly!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poppies Thinking of You Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a video that I did yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. The Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poppies designer series paper has a sheet that makes the most beautiful full page card front, and you can make the simplest beautiful card with it.

Here’s the Facebook Live video showing how to make this pretty card:

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

In the video, I made the card backwards, making the inside first and then the card front. I started by stamping the poppy and bud stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored the flowers with the Poppy Parade Stampin Blends and the stems and leaves with the Old Olive Stampin Blends. I used the large spatter stamp from the Painted Poppies stamp set to decorate the bottom of the panel with Blackberry Bliss and Poppy Parade inks after stamping off. I adhered it to an Old Olive mat and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base.

I trimmed the pretty panel of Stampin’ Up Peaceful Poppies DSP with an Old Olive mat. I tied a length of Blackberry Bliss twine around the panel and made a bow. I pre-made a label using the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and dies from the Painted Frames die set. I decorated the label with Peaceful Poppies sequins and an Old Olive die cut and popped it on the card front with dimensionals over the twine. I popped the panel on the card base with dimensionals and finished it off with more Peaceful Poppies sequins.

The Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poppies designer series paper is beautiful and with the Peaceful Moments and Painted Poppies bundles, the possibilities are endless. And this paper in the DSP pack is so artistic and pretty that it makes a statement on its own so that you can create a stunning card quick and easy.

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia Thinking of You Card

Good Morning! Years ago when I was first married, we lived in northwest Florida and we had a magnificent Magnolia Grandiflora tree in the back yard of our little house. Ever since, I have loved these flowers and was thrilled when I saw that Stampin’ Up! has a new bundle showcasing this beautiful force of nature. The Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set is part of the Magnolia Lane suite which features lots of coordinating products including DSP, an embossing folder, memories and more card pack, ribbon and cork embellishments. The Good Morning Magnolia bundle has the Cling Stamps and coordinating dies including dies to make 3-D flowers.

So on to today’s card…

I started by stamping the large magnolia flower on Whisper White cardstock using Early Espresso Ink. I used my Stamparatus to stamp it, because I don’t have the large stamping block and it worked wonderfully! I then die cut it using the coordinating die and colored it using the light Petal Pink, light and dark Old Olive and dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. I used the Pineapple Punch Stampin Write Marker to color the stamen.

I layered a piece of the Magnolia Lane DSP with the dainty flower buds on a Mossy Meadow mat and attached it to a Petal Pink card base with dimensionals. On a scrap of Mossy Meadow, I stamped the Thinking of You stamp in Versamark ink after dusting it with the embossing buddy. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set. I then cut it out with the Stitched Nested Labels die and trimmed the left side and attached it to the card with glue dots. I went to attach the flower to the card with dimensionals and determined that it was a little floppy, so I die cut another large flower in Whisper White cardstock and glued them together with multipurpose liquid glue before attaching them with dimensionals. The double layer of Whisper White made it much stiffer and better for use with dimensionals.

I finished off the card by tying piece of the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon and gluing it to the stem of the flower.

The inside of the card is decorated with a strip of the same DSP as the card front background and a Mossy Meadow mat. I also took the magnolia bud stamp and stamped it in early espresso after stamping it off 4 times. Since I had to stamp it off so much to get it light enough, I decided to use the 4th stamp to accent the envelop. So It was stamp it off 3 times on scrap paper, stamp the envelope and stamp the inside of the card! That Early Espresso goes a long way!

The Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set has so many wonderful images and greetings and and the suite has so many coordinating products, so I’ll be bringing this back for more designs. And I can’t wait to make a 3-D flower!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
