Stampin’ Up! Friendly Gnomes Stamp Set

Today’s card was created using Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper, Friendly Gnomes stamp set, Gnomes Dies and the Best Day stamp set. I also used the Stylish Shapes Dies which are now back in stock but also on the Low Inventory List. The Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper is a free product you can earn during Sale-a-Bration (which ends tomorrow) with a $100 purchase. 

Gnomes Dies Update:  The Gnomes Dies are currently unavailable and are estimated to be back in stock the week of March 27th. 

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock for the base of my card. Then I cut two pieces of Basic White cardstock (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). I adhered one to the inside of the card. With the other piece, I ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using one of the Basic 3D Embossing Folders (available March 1st). Then I adhered it to the card front. 

 

 

 

I layered a piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock with a piece of Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper and then adhered it to the left side of the card base. I used the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut a piece of Basic White cardstock and then ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Basic 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered this to a piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and placed it on the front of the card. 

 

 

 

 

I stamped the sentiment in Highland Heather ink onto Basic White cardstock and then cut it out using the Stylish Shapes Dies (the die was longer than I needed so I stamped towards the right and then trimmed off the length). Then, I stamped the gnome in Memento Ink onto Basic White cardstock and colored her with these Stampin’ Blends:

  • Highland Heather
  • Daffodil Delight
  • Fresh Freesia
  • Ivory

I cut her out with the Gnomes Dies and then adhered her to the sentiment. Then, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the gnome and the sentiment and placed them on the front of the card. 

 

 

 

To complete my card, I added three Glossy Dots to the card.

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony

We just returned home from being out of town for a few days to celebrate my mom’s 90th birthday. I feel very blessed that we were there to celebrate her big day with her. Today’s card is the birthday card I made for her and it features the stamp set, Prized Peony

 

 

I started with a base of Thick Basic White cardstock and then added a layer of Basic White cardstock that I embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder.  Normally I cut this piece down but it’s full size to cover the entire front of the card. 

 

 

I stamped the peony in Memento Ink onto a piece of Basic White cardstock and then colored it using these Stampin’ Blends:  Fresh Freesia (Light and Dark), Highland Heather (Light) and Old Olive (Light). I COMPLETELY forgot that I have the Peony Dies and even had a conversation with myself that I didn’t feel like fussy cutting it out. I just shook my head when I spotted the dies sitting on my crafting desk.  It’s that time of year when our heads can only hold so much, right?  I did list the Peony Dies in the Supply List below even though I didn’t actually use them (but I will soon!).  I mounted the peony onto a piece of Highland Heather cardstock, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card.

To color the peony using my Stampin’ Blends, I did several petals at one time. First, I colored the entire petal with Light Fresh Freesia.  Then, I used Dark Fresh Freesia to color in the highlights (this stamp tells you where the highlights are – the very dark areas).  I went over this same area again with Light Highland Heather and then went back in with Light Fresh Freesia to blend it all in. I only used Light Old Olive for the leaves and just colored them in and then went over the darker areas a second time When I tried using Dark Old Olive, I felt it was too dark. 

 

 

I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut a piece of Basic White cardstock and then stamped the sentiment in Highland Heather ink using the stamp set Artistically Inked. I mounted it onto a piece of Highland Heather cardstock, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and placed it below the peony. To complete the card, I added three Elegant Faceted Gems around the peony.

Today’s card features the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle which includes the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set and the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch. These two products are in the new Annual Catalog but the bundle will only be available until June 30th (bundles always save you 10%).

 

Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper

 

Sweet Ice Cream Bundle

 

The inspiration for my card came right from the Annual Catalog on page 33.  I made a few changes but if you’re ever stuck for an idea, browse through the catalog! It’s a great resource!

I started with a base of Thick Basic White cardstock and then added a layer of Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). Next, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock that I partially embossed using one of the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders. In the Supply List, I listed the big Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine but these smaller embossing folders WILL fit in the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine

 

Checks & Dots Embossing Folders

 

Checks & Dots Embossing Folder

 

After embossing, I stamped the sentiment in Polished Pink ink using the stamp set, In Bloom and then adhered this piece to the Designer Series Paper. On Basic White cardstock, I stamped the cones in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso ink.  The scoops were stamped in Pale Papaya and Polished Pink ink. Both the cones and scoops were cut out using the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch. I glued the cones down onto the embossing paper but added Stampin’ Dimensionals to each scoop of ice cream. 

 

Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch

 

To complete the card, I added five Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday to You

Happy Birthday to You

I used the stamp set, Happy Birthday to You, a FREE Sale-a-Bration gift with a $50 order, to create today’s card.  The coordinating Birthday Dies, just released on Tuesday, were used to cut the cake and stand. These dies, along with four others, are only available while supplies last so grab them while you can! 

 

Birthday Dies

 

The cake image was stamped using a Basic Gray Stampin’ Pad onto Whisper White cardstock.  Usually when I’m going to use my Stampin’ Blends, I use Memento ink but I went with gray for a softer look. The blends I used to color the image were:  Flirty Flamingo (light and dark), Granny  Apple Green (light and dark) and Smoky Slate (light).  After cutting the cake with the Birthday Dies, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back.  

 

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday to You

The base of the card is Flirty Flamingo with a layer of Whisper White that was embossed using the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder.  Before adhering this layer to the Flirty Flamingo, I wrapped our Metallic-Edged Ribbon around the cardstock and used Multipurpose Glue to attach it to the card base.  

The sentiment was stamped in Smoky Slate onto Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered it to a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and attached it below the ribbon. Using my Dark Flirty Flamingo Blend, I colored my rhinestones and then placed one in the middle of the three large flowers.

Stampin’ Up! Best Dressed Birthday Card

Peaceful Moments Stampin Up

 

Today’s card was created using Stampin’ Up! Best Dressed Designer Series Paper combined with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and the Layered Leaves embossing folder.  Several days ago I made quite a few cards using this Designer Series Paper and had a pile of strips leftover. I knew I couldn’t throw them away and my card today uses one of those scraps. I love when I can use all my leftover pieces! 

I embossed the Petal Pink cardstock using my die-cutting machine and the Layered Leaves embossing folder.  On the bottom half, I adhered the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.  Before attaching it to the Petal Pink card base, I wrapped Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon around the cardstock and made a bow.  Then I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card front.

Stitched So Sweetly

 

I used the Peaceful Moments stamp set for the sentiment and stamped it in Mossy Meadow ink.  It was cut out with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and mounted onto a large rectangle in Petal Pink.  Both pieces have Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back.  I added three of our Champagne Rhinestones to complete the card. You can find all the measurements I used below the supply list!
