Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday Abstract Impressions Card

My card today is super quick and easy.  When in doubt – let the Designer Series Paper do all the work!

I started off with Very Vanilla cardstock.  Over that I adhered a pattern from the Tea Room Designer Series Paper.  I took another pattern and cut out a banner from it and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then wound around a few times the vanilla and gold ribbon from the Tea Room Ribbon Combo pack.  Over the ribbon I adhered a butterfly which I cut out from another pattern from the Tea Room DSP.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Calypso Coral from the Detailed with Love Stamp Set.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Love – For You

As we speak I am away (again), this time in Guatemala

My family and I are here for a week on a missions trip to the Peten Jungle.  I look forward to sharing pictures with you upon my return!

Now on to today’s card…

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Love You To Pieces Stamp Set to stamp the flower image in Shaded Spruce along the top.  I then cut a piece of Vellum paper to go over it.

I cut a panel of Petal Pink cardstock to cover the bottom and embossed it using the Simple Stripes embossing folder.  I covered the seam with a piece of Petal Pink Ribbon.

I then cut a circle out using the Big Shot, the Stitched Shapes Framelits, and Gray Granite cardstock.

I used the Jar of Love Stamp Set and matching Everyday Jar Framelits to cut out a jar.  The jar was stamped in Gray Granite and the bow in Shaded Spruce ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Jar of Love Stamp Set as well in Shaded Spruce ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic Thank You Card

When in doubt, take inspiration from the catalog itself!

Today’s card was inspired by a card on page 120 of the Annual Catalog.  I especially loved the dotted paper behind the leaves.

My card starts off with Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I then too a pattern from the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.

I then cut out the “box of leaves” using the Tropical Thinlits Dies and adhered it over another pattern from the Tropical Escape DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce Ink on Whisper White cardstock.

I then used the Tropical Chic Bundle (stamp set and matching thinlits) to stamp and/or cut out leaves using Shaded Spruce ink and cardstock and Blushing Bride ink.  I added a Tropical Element embellishment and I tied a Linen Thread bow through it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions Flowers

Today’s card was another one that we made at my Annual Catalog Launch Party.

And now here we are getting ready for the Holiday Catalog.  The year always seems to fly by so quickly.

My card starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock which I embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock (to be matted on Call Me Clover cardstock) and used the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set to create my flowers.  I stamped the stems in Mint Macaron and Call Me Clover inks and Lovely Lipstick ink for the flowers (stamping off for the lighter shade).

I used the Springtime Impressions Thinlits to cut the butterfly out of Lovely Lipstick cardstock and then used a sponge to darken some areas using Lovely Lipstick ink.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Call Me Clover ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Blended Seasons Congrats

A few of my blog posts this past week featured this beautiful Blended Seasons Bundle.

It’s an exclusive bundle available only in the month of August – while supplies last!

You can see these other posts here and here.

Today I’m using the soft flower image from the Blended Seasons Bundle to make a congrats card.

My card starts off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I then took a panel of Powder Pink cardstock and cut a stitched frame out of it using the Stitched Seasons Framelits.  I matted this on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I cut the same stitched frame out of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flower image from the Blended Seasons Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on it.

I used Lovely Lipstick and Flirty Flamingo Stampin Blends Markers for the flowers and Granny Apple Green Stampin Blends Markers to color in the leaves.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Granny Apple Green cardstock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy!

Stampin Up Floral Frames Hello

Hello from Peru!

My family and I are currently visiting Peru on vacation.  I’m still blogging while away and the business still going strong.  I’ve posted some pictures of my trip so far on my Facebook page so swing over there to see our adventures in Cusco and Machu Picchu!

My card today starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

Next I stamped the “hello” from the Floral Frames stamp set in Versamark ink on a piece of Gold Foil.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I cut it out using a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits which I ran through twice to get the starburst edges.

Behind it I used the Foliage Frame Thinlits to cut out a bunch of leaves in Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy, Soft Sea Foam, and Gold Foil.  I also wound around some Gold Thread.

I adhered the sentiment down using Stampin’ Dimensionals and lastly added a few pearls around it.

Enjoy!
