Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Thank You Card

Sale-A-Bration is the best time to shop!

With your qualifying order, you earn FREE product.
Hands down my favorite free product this year is the Berry Blessings Bundle (Berry Blessings Stamp Set & Berry Delightful DSP) combo!

It is free with any order $100+ and coordinates beautifully with the Sweet Strawberry Bundle.

My card starts off with Poppy Parade cardstock which I covered with one of the patterns in the Berry Delightful DSP.

I then took a panel of Basic White cardstock and stamped the leaf image from the Sweet Strawberry twice in Memento Black ink. I colored in the leaf using the Granny Apple Green and the flower (just the center) in Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then matted this on Poppy Parade cardstock.

I then stamped the strawberry, stem, and leaf outline and flower images from the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set in Memento Black ink. I stamped the solid strawberry image in Poppy Parade ink and the stem and leaf images in Granny Apple Green ink. I cut them out using the Strawberry Builder Punch, adhering them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and adhered the panel over the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for checking out my project today!!

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Thank You Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a theme challenge. We’ll all be using new product from the 2021 Jan-June Catalog in our projects today.

My card starts off with Calypso Coral cardstock, which I embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

I then matted a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper on Whisper White cardstock.

I used the Stitched Nested Dies to cut out a panel from Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the stem from the Art Gallery Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow ink. I stamped the flower image first in Calypso Coral ink and then Terracotta Tile ink over it.

I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it. I cut it out with a smaller label from the Stitched Nested Dies.

I added a Mossy Meadow bow next to the sentiment.

Thanks for checking out my project today!

Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited Part 2

Yesterday I shared a card that I made as a thank you to our veterinarian.

It used the Handsomely Suited Bundle, which will be available starting Jan 5, 2021.
For today’s card I used the same layout, but made a nurse’s or doctor’s thank you card.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock. I then took a panel of Balmy Blue cardstock and used the Suit & Tie Dies to cut out a “v-neck.”

I used the same dies to make two pockets from Balmy Blue cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Handsomely Suited Stamp Set in Memento Black on the one pocket.

Next I stamped the heart from the Be Mine Stamp Set in Balmy Blue ink. I cut it out, as well as a Silver Foil circle using the Layering Circles Dies. To make the black part of the stethoscope, I used the Layering Ovals Dies.

Thanks for checking out my project today!

I hope you’ve been inspired by it and can’t wait to see all the different kinds of cards you’ll make using this Handsomely Suited Bundle in the near year!

Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited Vet Card

I have seen so many creative cards already using the new Handsomely Suited Bundle (available Jan 5, 2021).

I decided to try my hand at coming up with something fun and made a thank you card for our veterinarian. I have another card tomorrow to thank a person in the medical field!

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock. I took a pattern from the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper and used the “V” die from the Suit & Tie Dies to cut out a “v-neck.”

I used the same dies to cut out two pockets from Real Red cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Handsomely Suited Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.

I next made a “stethoscope.” I stamped the heart from the Meant to Be Stamp Set in Real Red ink. I cut it out, as well as a larger circle, from Silver Foil using the Layering Circles Dies. I made the black part using two dies from the Layering Ovals Dies.

Thanks for checking out my project today!

Be sure to add the Handsomely Suited Bundle to your wish list. It is just so versatile and can be used for a wide variety of cards!!

Stampin’ Up! Swirly Frames Thank You Card

Hi friends!

I don’t know about you, but this weekend flew by way too fast.
I hope you have a great week ahead (and are able to get some stamping in).

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock, which I embossed using the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder.

I then used the Stamparatus to stamp the rectangle from the Swirly Frames Stamp Set along a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Misty Moonlight, Pool Party, and Mint Macaron ink.

I stamped the right rectangle first in Mint Macaron ink, moved the hinge one space to the left, stamped it in Pool Party, moved the hinge one space to the left, and stamped it in Misty Moonlight ink. I continued this until all the rectangles were stamped.

I stamped the bird image from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set in Pool Party ink, stamping off first for a lighter shade.

I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set in the corner in Misty Moonlight ink. I then adhered a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock under the Whisper White panel.

Thanks for checking out my project today!!
