Stampin’ Up! Pretty Perennials and Sand & Sea

Today’s card is from one of my past Card Samplers and it features the Pretty Perennials stamp set and Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper

 

Pretty Perennials

 

Did you know the January – June 2021 Mini Catalog will be retiring soon? The retirement list for this catalog will be coming out in early June and all the retiring products will be available until June 30th or while supplies last. The Pretty Perennials stamp set and coordinating Perennial Petals Dies will both be retiring as well as the Pretty Perennials Bundle which includes both of these products (bundles always save you 10%).

Another product that will be retiring in June is Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper.  I have loved creating cards with this paper!

 

Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper

 

To create today’s card I started with a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock cut at 11″ x 4-1/4″ and scored at 5-1/2″.  Then I trimmed one end at 2-3/4″ (you can find all the rest of the measurements below the Supply List). The piece that’s been cut off is used for the sentiment piece.  

I added a piece of Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper to the front panel and also cut a small butterfly out of this same paper using the Brilliant Wings Dies. To attach the butterfly to the card, I used a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional but you could also use a Mini Glue Dot.

 

 

I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Memento Ink and my Stamparatus. I wanted the word “happy” to be nice and bold and you can always achieve that look when using the Stamparatus because you can stamp over and over again in the exact same place.  “Sending Lots of” was stamped in Melon Mambo ink using a clear block, not the Stamparatus. This piece was adhered to the Melon Mambo cardstock that was trimmed off. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to one side of the sentiment piece and attached it to the front panel. To complete the card, I added three Basic Rhinestone Jewels for some sparkle!

Enjoy your weekend!

Stampin’ Up! Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper

Today’s card is one that was included in my Pansy Petals Card Sampler last month. It features Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper, Hippo & Friends Dies and the stamp set, Free as a Bird.

 

 

I started with a base of Evening Evergreen cardstock and then added a layer of Soft Sea Foam cardstock that I ran through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Our 3D embossing folders are very thick and if you’ve never used one before, you’ll need to use our Specialty Plate when running it through your machine (this plate is not included with the machine).  The “sandwich” you’ll use when running it through your machine is little bit different than the sandwich used with our standard embossing folders. You’ll start with the Base Plate, then the embossing folder with paper inside and the Specialty Plate on top (the sandwich for a standard folder is Base Plate, cutting plate, embossing folder, cutting plate). There’s nothing like a beautifully embossed piece of paper! 

 

Specialty Plate Cut & Emboss Machine

 

Next, I adhered a panel of  Evening Evergreen cardstock with a piece of Pansy Petal Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink onto Basic White cardstock using the stamp set, Free as a Bird. Using the Evening Evergreen stamp pad is also a good option to stamp the sentiment.  When I made the card, customers were not yet able to purchase the new stamp pad so I opted for Mossy Meadow.  I cut both the sentiment and the Soft Sea Foam layer beneath it using the Hippo & Friends Dies. I love the stitching around the edges! 

 

 

Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper

 

 

To complete my card, I added three Opal Rounds to the front of the card and added a panel of Basic White cardstock to the inside.

A Little Hello in Expressions In Ink

Today’s card features Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper, the Pansy Patch stamp set and the Flowering Vine Dies. On Monday I shared another design from this package of paper and if you missed that card, you can see it here

 

Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper

 

 

Sometimes all you need to make a quick and easy card is a beautiful piece of paper and this paper definitely qualifies as beautiful!

To create today’s card, I started with a base of Thick Basic White cardstock and then added a layer of Shaded Spruce cardstock and Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper. The sentiment was stamped onto Basic White cardstock using the stamp set Pansy Patch.

 

 

I cut the sentiment out using the Flowering Vine Dies and the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. These dies can be purchased as part of the Vine Design Bundle which includes the Vine Design stamp set and Flowering Vine Dies.  You can find the Flowering Vine Dies, Vine Design stamp set and the Vine Design Bundle in the Mini Catalog.  Sadly these dies and stamp set (as well as the bundle) will be retiring at the end of June.

I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment before attaching it to the front of the card. To complete my card, I added two Holiday Rhinestones in Shaded Spruce. I made several of these cards yesterday and included them in several of my thank you packages.

Stampin’ Up! Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper

Today’s card features the beautiful Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper. This paper is truly gorgeous!!!

 

Expressions in Ink

 

I started with a base of Just Jade cardstock. Then I layered a piece of Pale Papaya cardstock with a piece of Expressions of Ink Designer Series Paper.  Before adhering these two pieces to the card base, I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon around the layers and tied a bow. 

 

 

I stamped the sentiment in Just Jade ink using the stamp set, Flowers of Friendship. I cut it out using the Stitched Retangles Dies and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card.

My goal when creating this card was to showcase this beautiful paper.  This paper is much too pretty to cover up!
