Stampin’ Up! Pansy Dies

Today’s card features Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper and Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper, both of which are on sale until August 2nd! 

 

Hand Penned Designer Series Paper

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock and then added a layer of Highland Heather cardstock and Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper. Using the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock for the sentiment and a scalloped circle using Blackberry Bliss cardstock.  

 

 

I stamped the sentiment onto the Basic White circle using Blackberry Bliss ink and the stamp set, Biggest Wish. After adhering the sentiment to the Blackberry Bliss scalloped circle, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and placed it in the center of the card. I used the Pansy Dies to cut three Pansies out of Petal Pansy Designer Series Paper. 

 

 

I adhered the two larger pansies to the Basic White circle using Multipurpose Glue and then adhered the smaller one below them.  To complete the card, I added five Elegant Faceted Gems (there are three different kinds in the package and I used the clear ones) to the front of the card.  In real life, they are so sparkly!

Stampin’ Up! Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper

Today’s card was one of the cards in my Potpourri Card Sampler last month.  It features Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (on sale until August 2nd), the Stitched Greenery Die and the Scalloped Contours Dies.

 

Stitched Greenery Die

 

Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper

 

I started with a base of Fresh Freesia cardstock and then added a layer of Basic White cardstock that I ran through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Stitched Greenery Die. Next, using the Scalloped Contours Dies, I cut a scalloped rectangle out of Basis White cardstock and another, smaller one out of Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.  I adhered the Designer Series Paper to the scalloped rectangle and then wrapped my Open Weave Ribbon in Fresh Freesia around the left side.  Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back before adhering it to the card front. 

As of this morning, the Scalloped Contours Dies are still on backorder (rather than unavailable) and are estimated to be back in stock the week of August 2nd.  When an item is in backorder status, you can still add it to your order. The rest of your order will ship without the backordered item but when additional inventory is received, Stampin’ Up! will automatically ship the item to you. If an item is unavailable that means you can not order it until it’s back in stock. 

 

Scalloped Contours Dies

 

The sentiment piece was also cut out using the Scalloped Contours Dies and then I stamped the sentiment in Fresh Freesia ink using the stamp set Plentiful Plants. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and then added it to the front of the card.  To complete the card, I added a piece of Basic White to the inside. 

 

Stitched Greenery Dies

The Color & Contour Bundle includes the Scalloped Contours Dies and the Color & Contour stamp set.

Stampin’ Up! Garden Birdhouses

I think I’ve mentioned before that my husband and I have several bird feeders in our backyard.  When I saw the Garden Birdhouses stamp set, I knew I had to have it.  Cute birds and birdhouses? Yes, please! 

 

Garden Birdhouses

 

Garden Birdhouses stamp set

 

I started with a base of Thick Basic White cardstock and then added a layer of Misty Moonlight cardstock and Basic White cardstock (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). I layered pieces of Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper to pieces of Balmy Blue cardstock and then adhered them to the card front.  Sweet Symmetry is one of nine Designer Series Papers on sale until August 2nd! 

 

 

Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper

 

I stamped the branch and birdhouse onto Basic White cardstock using Memento Ink and the Garden Birdhouses stamp set.  I colored the birdhouse using Balmy Blue and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends.  I used Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to fill in areas of the branch and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends to color the leaves. At the last minute I decided to add the bird and stamped it with Memento Ink and colored it with Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends. 

I layered the birdhouse onto a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock and then added Stampin’ Blends to the back and adhered it to the Balmy Blue/Designer Series Paper panels.  The sentiment was stamped  in Memento Ink and cut out with the Tasteful Labels Dies (these dies can be used with Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine).  On the back, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the right-side only and adhered the sentiment below the birdhouse.

Stampin’ Up! Stitched Greenery Die

Before sharing my cards for today, I want to let you know that today’s the last day my Expressions in Ink Card Sampler will be available.

 

 

Place a minimum $50 order (before shipping/tax) at my Stampin’ Up! online store using the host code GCSDBFQZ and as a thank you, you’ll receive my Expressions in Ink Card Sampler which includes 6 card kits (2 each of three different designs) with envelopes and a PDF Tutorial with instructions, pictures and a supply list. You’ll receive all the paper and embellishments needed to make the cards and all the paper will be cut, scored and die cut for you (you’ll need to supply your own adhesive, ink and stamp set). If your order is $150 or more, please do not use the host code so you can earn Stampin’ Rewards (free product) directly from Stampin’ Up! After placing your order, please contact me to let me know you’d like the Expressions in Ink Card Sampler (you only need to contact me if your order is $150 or more).  If I don’t hear from you, I’ll assume you’d like my regular card kits. The last day this offer will be available is TODAY, Monday, July 19, 2021. For all the details, please click here

 

 

When I made today’s card, I actually made two different versions of it. It was one of those cards where I just kept playing around with different elements. It features our Stitched Greenery Die (this fun die embosses your cardstock) and Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper (this paper is expected to be back in stock the week of August 2nd). 

 

Stitched Greenery Die

 

I started with a base of Thick Basic White cardstock and then added a layer of Shaded Spruce and Basic White cardstock.  The Basic White cardstock was embossed using the Stitched Greenery Die. Then I added a strip of Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List).

 

 

Using Basic White cardstock and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, I cut the shape for the sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and the stamp set Biggest Wish and then embossed it with gold embossing powder (see the directions below for embossing).  Stampin’ Up! used to sell our embossing powders individually but now you can purchase them in groups of three:  Metallics (copper, gold, silver) or Basics (black, clear, white).  I used the Metallics. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and adhered it to the Designer Series Paper.  To complete the card, I added Holiday Rhinestones. 

 

 

For this next card, I reversed the colors and added a vellum piece underneath the sentiment using the Painted Labels Dies. I didn’t add Dimensionals to the sentiment as I did for the other card but instead added them to the vellum piece.

 

Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper

 

 

How to Heat Emboss

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing an anti-static pouch (Stampin’ Up! no longer carries this product but it’s a must when embossing) over the surface as it helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder.  Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it.  Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image.  Shake off any excess.  Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool first so the paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch as your sentiment is transformed!

Scalloped Contours Friday Tutorial

Happy Friday! Today I have four more versions of the card I shared yesterday (if you missed it, you can see it here) and I have a free PDF tutorial for these cards!

This first card was made using Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper (on sale until August 2nd), the Scalloped Contours Dies, Stitched So Sweetly Dies and the stamp set, Beauty of Friendship. The Rhinestone Basic Jewels were colored with Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends. 

 

 

This next card was also made with Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper, Garden Green ink and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends. 

 

 

I used Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (also on sale until August 2nd) for the card below, Evening Evergreen ink and Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends. 

 

 

This last card was made with Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper, Just Jade ink and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends. Quick Update on Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper:  As many of you know, this paper was on backorder for quite some time (everyone loves it).  It was back in stock last week and sold out again.  A new shipment is expected the week of August 2nd.

Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper

 

SALE 15% OFF until August 2, 2021 – Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper 

 

I started with a base of Thick Basic White cardstock and then added a layer of Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper that I cut with the Scalloped Contours Dies. Using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, I cut a piece of Vellum cardstock and another smaller piece out of Basic White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set using Garden Green ink (this stamp set is also included in the Beauty of Friendship Bundle) onto the Basic White rectangle.

 

 

I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and adhered it to the Vellum rectangle.  I added more Stampin’ Dimensionals (I love my dimensionals) to the back of the vellum and added it to the front of the card.  I used my Light Misty Moonlight Blend to color three of our Rhinestone Basic Jewels and added them to the sentiment piece.  Definitely a quick and easy card to make!

No Friday Tutorial Today

Free Shipping Day is over and many of you took advantage of this surprise one day promotion! Thank you to everyone who placed an order yesterday!

I’m sorry, but I don’t have a Friday tutorial today.  I’ve been at my mom’s, for a month now, to help her convalesce from a hospital stay.  She had a setback this week and was hospitalized again on Wednesday afternoon. I stayed with her all day yesterday in the hospital and will be there each day until she comes home which, fingers crossed, should be on Sunday. Needless to say, I can’t quite concentrate on anything but my mom right now. 

I didn’t want to just disappear and not let you know why.  If you placed an order yesterday, thank you so much, and I will be in touch in the next few days. I hope to be back soon sharing my cards!

All orders $50 or more are shipping FREE, today ONLY!!!

Today’s card is a variation of the card I posted yesterday.  If you missed yesterday’s card, you can see it here. I changed up the color of the cardstock, used a different sentiment and embossed my cardstock using the Stitched Greenery Die.

 

Hand Penned Petals Bundle

 

The base of my card is Thick Basic White cardstock with layers of Pale Papaya cardstock that I embossed using the Stitched Greenery Die. This die is used like any other die but your paper comes out of the  Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine embossed! 

 

 

I stamped the flowers onto Basic White cardstock using Memento ink and the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set. They were colored using Pale Papaya and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  I cut them out using the coordinating Penned Flowers Dies. You can purchase this stamp set and dies as a bundle and save 10%.

 

 

 

The scalloped rectangle was cut out of Basic White cardstock using the Scalloped Contours Dies and the sentiment was stamped in Memento Ink with the stamp set Beauty of Friendship.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the flowers before adhering them to the scalloped rectangle.

 

 

On the back of the scalloped rectangle, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals, on the right side only, before adhering it to the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Bundle

All orders $50 or more TOMORROW will ship FREE!!

 

Todays card features the Hand-Penned Petals Bundle which includes the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set and the Penned Flowers Dies.  I also used the Scalloped Contours Dies

 

scalloped contours dies

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). I embossed two pieces of Poppy Parade cardstock with the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders and then adhered these pieces to the Thick Basic White cardstock.  I cut a scalloped rectangle out of Basic White cardstock using the Scalloped Contours Dies and then stamped the sentiment in Memento ink in the lower left-hand corner. 

 

 

The flowers were stamped onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Memento Ink and the stamp set Hand-Penned Petals (when you use Stampin’ Blends, you always want to stamp your image using Memento Ink). I colored them using the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack and the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the flowers and adhered it to the scalloped rectangle. This is a pretty quick and easy card to make!
