Stampin’ Up! Simply Elegant Wedding Card & Video

Let’s talk Designer Series Paper for a moment.

I think besides ink pads, it was the first thing I bought when I first started stamping. Why? Because it makes really easy, quick, beautiful cards.

The new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is full of gorgeous Designer Series Paper – honestly, I think Stampin’ Up! hit it out of the park with the paper!!!

I have a Product Share to get you a sampling of it all!!! Yes all new Designer Series Paper. I just counted and it’s 172 sheets of 6×6 paper – wow!

I used the new Simply Elegant Designer Series Paper in my card today. It’ll be available beginning May 4th, as well as in my Product Share!

My card starts with Very Vanilla cardstock. In the corner I stamped the floral image from the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set in Basic Gray ink (stamping off first). I then embossed this using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

(I must reaaaaalllly like doing this, but I did it yesterday in this card.)

I then adhered two patterns from the Simply Elegant Designer Series Paper. The name fits this paper perfectly – it’s very elegant!!!!

I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with Silver Embossing Powder, and heat set it. I cut it out using the Painted Labels Dies and then wound some beautiful Silver Trim underneath it.

*This Simply Elegant Trim comes in silver and gold and is included in my Product Share.

I then fussy cut out two of the flowers from another pattern in the Simply Elegant Designer Series Paper. Lastly, I added a few silver epoxy embellishments (also included in the Product Share).

Banners For You – Happy Anniversary

Today’s card was inspired by the challenge this week at The Paper Players.

My card today starts off with Tempting Turquoise as its base color.

I took the Banners For You stamp set and stamped some leaves (Pear Pizzazz) and flowers (Real Red and Tangerine Tango) on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I matted it on some Tangerine Tango cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the banner in Tempting Turquoise and the sentiment in Tangerine Tango and cut it out using the coordinating Bunch of Banners framelits.  I adhered the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Happy Anniversary – Falling in Love

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

I have to laugh because when I finished the card and took a good look at it – I realized it has the same exact colors in it as last week’s blog hop.  Last week I didn’t use Designer Series Paper, though, so I guess it’s not a total copy.

My card today uses Soft Sky cardstock as its base.  I took two patterns from the Falling In Love DSP and adhered them to the front and used Blushing Bride ribbon to cover the seam.

I cut out a square in Blushing Bride cardstock and dry embossed it using the Falling Petals embossing folder and matted it on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Before adhering it to the card, I placed a Very Vanilla doily behind it.

Lastly, my sentiment comes from the So In Love stamp set and was stamped in Blushing Bride ink.

Enjoy!

Flourish Thinlits

The new Flourish Thinlits is gorgeous!!!

For today’s card share I started with a base of Pink Pirouette.  I then cut out four flowers and four leaves from the thinlits in Whisper White cardstock.  Flourishing Phrases - Stamp It Up With JaimieTo get the color, I used Daubbers and dabbed the flower part in Melon Mambo and leaf/stem part in Pear Pizzazz.  I also cut out a strip of the “lattice” in Whisper White.

I adhered the lattice first and then the flowers and leaves in a circle at the center of the card.

Flourishing Phrases - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimi

For the sentiment, I stamped a banner from the Banners for You Bundle in Pear Pizzazz on Pear Pizzazz and heat embossed the sentiment in white over it.  I attached it using dimensionals to give it a little lift.

Enjoy!
