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 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!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Card

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

My card today starts off with Petal Pink cardstock, on which I adhered a pattern from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

I then put my fussy cutting skills to the test and cut out an image from one of the patterns in the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  I adhered it down using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then stamped the “thank you” from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Crumb Cake cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the “for everything” from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

My card today starts off with Soft Suede cardstock which I embossed using the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used a die from the Poppy Moments Dies to cut out a beautiful floral image.  I matted this on Seaside Spray cardstock using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered this down using more dimensionals onto the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Free As  A Bird Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Seaside Spray cardstock.  I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut it out.  I positioned the rectangle die twice in order to get it to fit snugger on the sentiment.

To see how I did this technique, you can check out this video of a previous card that I did the same thing for.

Finally, I added a piece of Seaside Spray Linen Ribbon to the sentiment and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Grateful Card

We have a great new sketch challenge for you at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

Sketches are a great tool for creating a card.  I find they get the creativity going and are a starting point.  I sure hope you’ll play along this week!

My card today starts off with Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I then used the Stitched Lace Dies to cut a lace detail from Whisper White cardstock.  I cut a same size piece of Whisper White cardstock to adhere behind it.

I then used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to create a frame.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the To A Wile Rose Bundle and stamped the flower in Flirty Flamingo ink and leaf in Soft Sea Foam (both full strength for outside and stamping off for lighter shade).  I used the Wild Rose Dies to cut them out and a leaf from Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

I covered part of the sentiment from the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set with washi tape, inked it up in Flirty Flamingo ink, removed the washi tape, and stamped it down on Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut it out.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Fun Fold Video Tutorial

My card today uses the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set and coordinating Ornate Borders Dies.

The gorgeous Designer Series Paper is the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It’s specialty paper because some of the patterns have a beautiful gold foil in them.
