Stampin’ Up! Well Written Thank You Cards

Good Morning! Today I want to share a set of thank you cards using the Stampin’ Up! Well Written Dies with the Sale A Bration Flower & Field designer series paper. You can find the supplies at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I used the Basic White Note Cards and Envelopes as my card bases. These are nice, thick card bases that don’t need a liner and meet the minimum size requirement to be mailed by the US Postal Service, so they are perfect for a quick thank you or for a little set of cards. They are pre-scored, so you just need to fold it and burnish the edge well with your bone folder.

I embossed a panel of Basic White with the Little Details embossing folder. I adhered the striped paper to the floral paper from the Flower & Field designer series paper and adhered them both to the bottom of the embossed panel. I adhered the panel to the front of the note card.

I adhered a strip of adhesive sheets to the back of a Basic White strip and cut out the thanks sentiment die from the Stampin’ Up! Well Written dies. I peeled the backing off and adhered the word to the floral designer series paper and finished off the card front with a Black Matte dot.

I love the Stampin’ Up! Well Written dies for making die cut words. The font is sweet and casual and there are words for lots of occasions. And I love the Little Details embossing folders with all the different stitches – it adds wonderful texture to the white background.

Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence Miss You Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I have a whimsical miss you card to brighten your day using the sweet Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence stamp bundle along with the Well Written Dies.

We have a color challenge this week, and here is the bright, fun color palette we are using:

My card also fits with the current challenge at TGIF Challenges – #TGIFC261- Use Your Words. Check it out – it’s a fun challenge and the cards are so cute.

I adhered a panel of the Daffodil Delight sprinkles paper from the Birthday Bonanza designer series paper pack to a Grapefruit Grove mat and then to a thick Whisper White card base with multipurpose liquid glue. I cut a panel of Whisper White with a Stitched So Sweetly Dies scalloped rectangle and embossed it with the Scripty embossing folder. I adhered it to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped 9 three petal flower clusters from the Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark Ink on the Grapefruit Grove starburst paper from the Birthday Bonanza DSP pack. I sprinkled them with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heat set until shiny and punched them out with the Perennial Flower Punch. I gently curved the petals with my fingers and made three flowers by adhering the centers with multipurpose liquid glue – each flower has three sets of petals. I added a fun, fuzzy Perennial Essence Floral Center to each flower. I stamped 6 leaf clusters from the Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence stamp set using Bermuda Bay ink on the Bermuda Bay confetti paper from the Birthday Bonanza DSP pack and punched them out with the Leaf Punch.

I cut out the sentiment from Bermuda Bay card stock using the Well Written Dies. I also cut two Well Written Dies butterflies from Daffodil Delight card stock. With all the pieces cut out, I arranged them on the card front and started assembly by adhering the Bermuda Bay words with multipurpose liquid glue – Don’t lose the tiny dot for the ‘I’! I adhered the leaves with multipurpose liquid glue and the flowers with glue dots. Lastly, I adhere a little butterfly and finished it off with Calypso Coral enamel dots.

I adhered the second butterfly to the top corner of a Whisper White panel and added the strip of Daffodil Delight DSP. I adhered the decorated panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat and then to the inside of the card.

What do you think of stamping on the designer series paper? It’s a little different, giving a little extra texture to the flowers and leaves. Too bad I didn’t die cut the butterflies from the Daffodil Delight sprinkle paper – next time.

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Fall Thank You Card

Good Morning! Boy, I’m really on a roll with the new Stampin’ Up! Gather Together bundle. I’ve made about 1/2 dozen different designs for classes and tutorials as well as this blog. I think it’s because we’re in the season and the bundle and papers are so pretty and versatile. This card is a Thank You card that combines the Gather Together bundle with the Well Written dies.

This is a card that I designed for my Cardmaking 101 video series on Facebook. It’s the first time I’ve introduced die cuts in the series and these are the perfect sets to introduce this wonderful technique. Here is the card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

And here is a link to the how-to video that I shared earlier on Facebook Live. Instructions for creating the card are in the video. I apologize ahead of time for it being so long – my goal is to improve each video in both production and instructional quality.

I intend to set up a YouTube channel in the near future so you can view my videos there as well, but I’m still learning how to set this up, so for now I am only on Facebook and here.

Here’s a closeup of the card front details:

Thanks for visiting and watching. Have a great weekend!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane with Perennial Essence DSP Friendship Card

Good Morning! Today I have a clean and simple – CAS – card that uses the new Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane cling stamp set, the new Perennial Essence Designer Series paper and the Stampin’ Up! Well Written dies.

This card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #394 and I really tried to keep it simple in keeping with the CAS philosophy. Check out the FMS394 designer inspiration and other challenge entries. You can find supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by cutting a strip of the pretty Perennial Essence DSP and matting it with Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

I then made the pretty daisy by stamping the small daisy from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane cling stamp set in Versamark ink on Vellum cardstock. I then dusted it with white embossing powder and heat set. I punched it with the Medium Daisy punch. I did this twice so that I had two sets of flower petals. I used my bone folder to gently curl the petals back and attached them together using a glue dot. The flower is finished with one of the Perennial Essence Floral Centers embellishments. Look at that shine!

I next die cut the word ‘friend’ using the Stampin’ Up! Well Written dies in Flirty Flamingo and adhered it to the DSP with the fine tipped glue pen. I attached the daisy with a glue dot and attached the DSP panel to a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals. That’s it!

The inside is pretty simple too – I accented the whisper white with a strip of the Stampin’ Up! Perennial Essence DSP and added a flirty flamingo mat before attaching it to the card base with snail.

This was a quick card and I was so tempted to dress it up more with ribbon or leaves but decided to leave it be and let the daisy and DSP take the spotlight. What do you think?

A simple pretty friendship card that that can be used for any occasion. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
