Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Thank You Cards

Team pink vs. team purple

I mentioned it this week over on Facebook that people tend to either be team pink or team purple. I was surprised by everyone’s answers. They were pretty 50/50. You can vote for team pink or team purple here.

In honor of team pink vs. team purple, I made two cards today using the same layout, same product, but one pink and one purple. Let me know in the comments which one you prefer 🙂

My card starts off with one of our new In Colors, Polished Pink. I then used the brand new Scalloped Contours Dies to cut out a scalloped piece of Basic White cardstock. I used the same dies, the next size smaller, to cut out a scalloped Melon Mambo pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper.

This particular pattern is part of the new pack included in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. You get a sampling of it, and all the new Designer Series Paper for that matter, in my Product Share. You can check out all the details here.

Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Color & Contour Stamp Set in Melon Mambo ink. I used another die from the Scalloped Contours Dies to cut it out.

You’ll notice that the die itself is bigger than the sentiment. Using a simple method, I made the die fit the sentiment. Although not this exact die, check out this video here to see how to make a die fit a sentiment better.

Next I stamped the floral image in Memento Black ink and the inside floral image in Polished Pink. I adhered this to a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet and then cut it out using the same dies. I then wrapped around a piece of Polished Pink ribbon in a knot.

This ribbon is gorgeous, available in all five 2021-2023 In Colors beginning May 4th and in my Product Share as well.

Here’s a look at the same card, same layout but using Fresh Freesia and Highland Heather colors.

So the question is, are you team pink or team purple?

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Thank You Card

I have a great thank you card for you today using the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.

It fit this week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop perfectly!

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock, which I covered with a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.

Good news: The fun In Good Taste DSP will be carrying over into the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog!!!

Next, I stamped the sunflower and leaf images from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp in Memento Black ink on Basic White cardstock. I used the new…and gorgeous Soft Succulent (leaves), Pale Papaya, Pumpkin Pie, and Crumb Cake (flower) Stampin’ Blends to color it in. I cut it out using the Sunflower Dies.

Stampin Up Celebrate Sunflowers thank you card

I used the same dies to cut out a few sprigs from Crumb Cake cardstock. I adhered the sunflower down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in one of the new 2021-2023 In Colors, Soft Succulent, and adhered a small panel of Soft Succulent cardstock underneath.

The new Annual Catalog comes with a new bundle of twine called the Baker’s Twine Essentials Combo Pack, which includes Crumb Cake twine, which I wound around under the sentiment. Lastly, I added a few Gilded Gems.

For today’s card, I participated in the Fab Friday Challenge.

Fab Friday Logos-085I started with a base of Thick Whisper White and layered it with Blushing Bride.

One Big Meaning - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I took two patterns from the Birthday Bouquet DSP and layered them over each other, clipping the ends with the Triple Banner Punch.

One Big Meaning - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

The sentiment comes from the One Big Meaning Stamp Set and was stamped in Watermelon Wonder and layered over some Watermelon Wonder cardstock.  Underneath the sentiment I put a bit of Vellum.

To finish it off, I added some Rhinestones on the sentiment and a Metallic Doily underneath.

Enjoy!
