Stampin’ Up! Clean & Simple Butterfly Gala Thank You Cards

#Simplestamping …

I love a card all dazzled up, but there is definitely a place in my heart for quick, simple cards.

I was in need of a bunch of thank you cards so I used the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and bright cardstock.

My cards start off with either Mango Melody, Coastal Cabana, or Highly Heather cardstock.

I then stamped the double butterfly from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set multiple times on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Memento Black ink.  I also stamped little antennas and bodies.

I colored the top part of the butterflies in either Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, or Highland Heather and the bottom part in either Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay, or Gorgeous Grape ink.

I then stamped the sentiments next to the butterflies in either Mango Melody, Coastal Cabana, or Gorgeous Grape ink and matted it on Basic Black cardstock.

That’s it – easy peasy.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! NEW Celebrate Sunflowers Celebrate You Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

This past weekend I went to Facebook to get help for today’s card.  I knew I wanted to use the NEW In Good Taste Designer Series Paper but I wasn’t sure whether to go with the light or dark shade wood.

Well, here’s the final product:

My card starts off with So Saffron cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and matted it on Mango Melody cardstock.

This Designer Series Paper is included in my Product Share, so be sure to check out all the details here.

I then stamped the sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Mango Melody ink on So Saffron cardstock.  I cut it out and a Mango Melody sunflower outline using the Sunflowers Dies.

I stamped the leaves in Old Olive ink on Old Olive cardstock and then cut them out, as well as leaf outlines from Old Olive cardstock to adhere over them.  I adhered the leaves under the flower and then adhered everything down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers in Old Olive ink.  I cut out the “let’s” and then fussy cut the “celebrate you.”  I wound around some Linen Thread under the sentiment and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Smile Card

Happy Tuesday everyone!

For today I made a (fairly) monochromatic card using Flirty Flamingo.  A great way to get different shades of the same color is to “stamp off.”  When you “stamp off,” you just literally…stamp off.

You ink up your stamp and then first stamp on a scrap piece of paper and then stamp on your desired space.  You can even stamp off a few times to get a very light shade of color.

My card today starts off with Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flowers in Flirty Flamingo ink and leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set.

As mentioned above, I stamped off first to get the lighter shade of Flirty Flamingo.

I then embossed the cardstock using the Subtle Embossing Folder and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I then stamped the “make me smile” from the Well Said Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I then used the Well Written Dies and cut out three “you” words.  I adhered them over one another and added a single rhinestone next to the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Flowers for Every Season Sunflower Card

If you’ve followed my blog for a bit now you’ll know I love simple cards.

I don’t think it takes much to make a pretty card and today all it took was Designer Series Paper, embossed cardstock, a sweet embellishment, and a fun sentiment.

My card starts off with Misty Moonlight cardstock (NEW 2020-2022 In Color) which I embossed with the NEW Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut out a pattern from the NEW Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper.

This DSP is included in my Product Share, along with all the new paper.  Check out all the details here on how you can get a sampling of all the new Designer Series Paper and more!

I matted the DSP on Bumblebee cardstock (another NEW 2020-2022 In Color) and then again on Whisper White cardstock.  I then added two Bumblebee Enamel Dots under the cardstock.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Bumblebee cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Sneak Peek Forever Greenery Suite – Two Cards

Wednesday I shared with you a card I made using brand new product from the Forever Greenery Suite.

I made that card live the week before, but I also showed two other cards, which I wanted to share with you today.

Both cards use product from this gorgeous Forever Greenery Suite and will be available June 3rd.  The Designer Series Paper and ribbon are included in my Product Share, so be sure to check that out.

The first card starts off with Pretty Peacock cardstock.  I adhered a pattern from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper (which is gorgeous by the way) to the left of the card.

I then stamped one of the ferns in two corners of a Whisper White panel in Pear Pizzazz ink and the smaller one in Pretty Peacock ink and then matted this on Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock ink on Pear Pizzazz cardstock and adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Lastly, I added a Very Vanilla bow using ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Pack.

For my second card I wanted to show off the dies.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then matted a pattern from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper on Pretty Peacock cardstock.

I used the Forever Flourishing Dies to cut out one fern from Pretty Peacock cardstock and the other from Just Jade (a new In Color) cardstock.  I also stamped one of the ferns in Pear Pizzazz ink and the other in Soft Sea Foam ink and cut them out using the same dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock ink on Just Jade cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  Underneath I wound some gold thread from the Forever Greenery Trim Pack.

Lastly, I added a few Just Jade Enamel Dots over the Designer Series Paper.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! *NEW Tasteful Touches Thanks Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

I made a simple card today that features three new products from the new Annual Catalog: the Many Mates Stamp Set (sentiment), the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set (flower), and one of the new In Colors, Misty Moonlight.

Did you catch my In Color comparison and unboxing video?  You can check it out here.

My card starts off with Sahara Sand cardstock which I embossed using the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.

Next I cut a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock and Seaside Spray cardstock and matted them on Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the flower from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set in Versamark ink over the seam of the two.

In the bottom corner I stamped the “You’re So Nice” from the Many Mates Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I stamped the “thanks” from the Many Mates Stamp Set in Seaside Spray ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I snipped the end of it and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Country Home Tile Background Card

A friend of mine posted a picture of her new breakfast nook and it immediately inspired today’s card!

She’s an amazing designer and is just one of those people that has a great eye for design.  Be sure to head over and check out her Etsy store.

I used the tile from the Country Home Stamp Set to create my own tile background.

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the tile in Night of Navy ink on it.  I purposefully didn’t ink the stamp fully to get a rustic look on it.  I just lightly tapped the stamp on the ink.

I matted this on Whisper White cardstock and wrapped around some Gray Granite ribbon in a knot.  I then used the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut out a Whisper White square.  I matted this on Gray Granite cardstock and then on Night of Navy cardstock.

I stamped the pitcher from the Country Home Stamp Set in Gray Granite ink and colored it in using the Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Night of Navy cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it down using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! NEW Celebrate Sunflowers Thanks Card

Today I’m using another brand new bundle from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog…the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.

It will be available beginning June 3rd.

Be sure to head over to my Facebook page once you’ve received your catalog.  Look for my selfie with my catalog and post a selfie of you with yours in the comments.  I’ll do a random giveaway!

My card starts off with the new Cinnamon Cider cardstock.  This is a new 2020-2022 In Color and it’s beautiful!  I then wrapped around some Very Vanilla ribbon from the Forever Greenery pack in the corner.

I matted a Cinnamon Cider pattern from the 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper on Whisper White cardstock.  I then layered over the Very Vanilla ribbon a piece of Cinnamon Cider ribbon.  Above the DSP, I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I stamped the sunflower and leaves from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I colored them in using Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody (sunflower), Soft Suede (center of flower), and Old Olive (leaves) Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut them out, as well as a few leaf outlines using the coordinating Sunflowers Dies.

I adhered the flower down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!
