Stampin’ Up! Arrange a Wreath Easter Card

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

I mean, I always love a Wednesday, but today is especially special because demos get to see the NEW 2021-2022 Annual Catalog PDF – in all its glory, with all of its newness, and brand spankin’ new goodies.

Woot-woot. We also get to preorder from it in a couple of weeks, so if you’ve ever considered joining as a demo – now is a GREAT time (and that 20% discount will come in real handy!!!!).

Today’s card is the one I shared last week for my Facebook live. I’ve just about wrapped up making Easter cards, but still need a few more so I grabbed the Arrange a Wreath Bundle. This is a great bundle as it covers a variety of holidays!!!

I’ll be back tonight with a card I know you’re going to love, well, maybe not entirely because it’s a sympathy card and no one ever wants to have to make a sympathy card, but it’s sweet and I think you’re going to really want to make it. Join me at 7:30 EST tonight over on Facebook to catch it live and possibly win the card!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Square Thank You Card

Last Thursday on Facebook, I challenged you to use your Designer Series Paper.

With the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog coming to a close, I’m trying to use up the last bits of my Designer Series Paper.
I mean, we have to make room for all the new goodies, don’t we?!

So I have a really quick, simple, just #simplestamping, no die cutting, card for today.

My card starts off with Pretty Peacock cardstock, which by the way, will be retiring for good the end of April. It would be a great idea to stock up on this color while it’s still available!

Next I cut a pattern from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper almost square – 1/8″ shorter width wise and then cut it on a diagonal.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz ink and a fern in Pretty Peacock ink on a square piece of Basic White cardstock, matting a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock behind it.

I then wound around a piece of the Pretty Peacock/Old Olive ribbon behind the square, adhering it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for checking out my project today!!!

Be sure to head over to my store and stock up on the retiring Forever Greenery DSP and Pretty Peacock cardstock and ink pad!!!

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

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Spotlight Card

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

My card today starts off with Petal Pink cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Forever Blossoms Spotlight Card

I then stamped the bigger floral image from the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set in Smoky Slate on a panel of Basic White cardstock.

I then used an oval from the Layering Ovals Dies to cut out the center. I used the same dies to cut out a Smoky Slate scalloped oval to adhere under it.

I used the Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers to color in the flowers on just the part that was cut out (and just the Light Marker to add a highlight around the flowers that aren’t colored in) and the Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends to color the petals. I adhered the oval down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it. I cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Lastly, I added a couple of Champagne Rhinestones next to the sentiment.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Birthday Card

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

My card today starts off with Calypso Coral cardstock.

I then adhered a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper over the card front.

I then took a panel of Basic White cardstock and stamped the flowers from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set in Calypso Coral, Mossy Meadow, and Bumblebee ink.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow ink.

When I add a bow to a card, 99% of the time I wrap around the ribbon and make the bow separately. For this card, I wrapped the ribbon around twice, made a bow separately, and adhered it over the ribbon.

Stampin’ Up! Ridiculously Awesome Sunshine Card

Looking quickly, you might not believe today’s card was made by me.

One word….yellow.
If you’ve followed my blog or social media for a bit you’ll know how I feel about yellow.

I really detest the color. Yet, when making a sunshine card, only yellow will do, and I really like how it came out.

My card starts off with Daffodil Delight cardstock, which I embossed using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.

I then used the Stitched Triangles Dies and cut out a bunch of triangles from Daffodil Delight cardstock. I then adhered them over a panel of Basic White cardstock, which I then matted on Basic Black cardstock.

I stamped the “sunshine” from the Ridiculously Awesome Stamp Set in Memento Black ink, which I then fussy cut out and adhered down using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped the “sending” from the Well Said Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and adhered it next to the sunshine.

Stampin’ Up! Posted for You Birthday Card

I had a new color and sketch challenge for my team this week.

I have to say this one even had be stumped and it took a bit before I could get them to work together, but this is what I came up with.

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock, which embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the floral image from the Posted for You Stamp Set. I colored them in using the Real Red and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

**Did you receive my weekly Tips & Updates Email this week? It had a tip in it to get the splatter effect. Be sure to check it out!

If you haven’t signed up for this weekly email, head over here. You won’t want to miss out anything. You’ll also receive free tutorials for five quick and easy cards!

I then cut the panel in three even pieces and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I folded over a piece of Real Red ribbon to adhere to the left side of the panels.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Posted for You Stamp Set in Versamark Ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat set it. I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered it down using Mini Dimensionals.
