Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies A Little Something Card

Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper has always been a favorite of mine.

It makes card making really easy and let’s face it – the paper is beautiful!!

I put out a question on my Facebook page last weekend as to which combination of patterns to use from the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper and the purple combination was the clear winner!

Today’s card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then took two patterns from the Peaceful Poppies DSP and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I used the Poppy Moments Dies to cut out a flower from Rich Razzleberry and Basic Black cardstock.  Next to it I used the Leaf Punch to cut out a few leaves from Old Olive cardstock.

I added a Rich Razzleberry banner underneath the DSP panel and stamped the sentiment form the Sending You Thoughts Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry ink.

Enjoy!


Today’s card is part of this week’s new Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.  It’s a great sketch with lots of layering, so be sure to play along with us this week!

Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Quick and Simple Card

The Honey Bee Bundle was one that immediately caught my eye in the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog.

The bees are so cute and I think they can cover a wide range of occasions and work great for cards with lots of layers, as well as simple cards, such as today’s.

My card today starts off with Mango Melody cardstock which I cut 4-1/4″x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″.

I cut a 4″x 4″ Whisper White panel and used the honeycomb die from the Detailed Bee Dies and cut through the Whisper White panel and Mango Melody card front.   I stamped the honeycomb from the Honey Bee Stamp Set in Crushed Curry ink and cut it out using the same die, which I adhered on the inside of the card.

I stamped the bee and stamp set in Memento Black.  I colored the bee in using Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut it out using the same dies.  I also used the same dies to cut out a couple of hearts from Basic Black cardstock.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Hello Card

Happy Friday!!!

I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend (hopefully filled with some stamping) and a fun Super Bowl Sunday (for those in the US).

My card today starts off Balmy Blue cardstock, on which I adhered a Balmy Blue pattern from the Subtles Designer Series Paper.

Next I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut out a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the raindrops from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set in Balmy Blue ink all around across the front.

In the bottom right hand corner I stamped the sentiment (using the Washi Tape technique so as only to stamp the “hello”) in Poppy Parade ink.

I stamped the boots, umbrella, flowers, and handle in Memento Black ink on a separate Whisper White cardstock.  I colored them in using Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green, and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the umbrella and handle out with the coordinating Umbrella Builder Punch and the flowers and boots I fussy cut out.

Lastly under the scalloped rectangle, I tied around a Poppy Parade Bow.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Thank You Card

I love a circle or a square or even an oval…

But there’s something super fun about a totally different shape than the “usual.”  Add some fun layering in and a stitched border and it’s my new favorite product…

The So Sentimental Bundle!  It’s a must!

My card starts off with Petal Pink cardstock.  I then matted a pattern from the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper on Whisper White card stock.

I wrapped some Whisper White Ribbon around it and tied a couple of Best Dressed Tassels in a knot.

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

I used the same dies and cut out a Whisper White layer which I embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.  I adhered them over one another using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Card

I love when stamps and bundles can work for a variety of occasions.  It’s all about versatility!

The Mountain Air Bundle is a great one for creating nature scenes and can be used for just about any occasion – masculine cards, sympathy, birthday, and just because.

My card today starts off with Gray Granite cardstock.  I first took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the back of the mountains in Gray Granite ink (stamping off first).

I then stamped the mountains on a separate Whisper White panel in Gray Granite ink and the trees in Pretty Peacock ink and cut them out using the coordinating Majestic Mountain Dies.  I also used the same dies to cut out two trees from Pretty Peacock cardstock.

I matted this on Pretty Peacock cardstock and wrapped some Linen Thread around it in a bow.

I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock ink which I adhered down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.

On the card front I stamped the small leaf multiple times from the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I used the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set and stamped one of the flowers in Versamark ink on Vellum cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I did this multiple times and then used the Small Bloom Punch to cut them out, as well as a bunch of other flowers from Pool Party and Petal Pink cardstock.

I adhered these down cascading down the card.

I used the Christmas Cardinal Dies and cut out little swirls from Vellum cardstock to add around the flowers and then added some rhinestones to finish it off.

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons HSS 331 Card

I really stretched myself for today’s card.

I have to admit it’s not one I would normally make.
But I was really inspired by one of the pictures in the new Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge (the upper left corner).

This is a fun winter challenge, so be sure to play along!

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used a brayer to color over it.  I used Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Blueberry Bushel, and Night of Navy ink.  I then matted this on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I used the Seasonal Layers Dies and cut out snowflakes from Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set in Melon Mambo ink and cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I added some rhinestones around to finish it off.

Enjoy!
