Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper

Today’s cards combine a retiring product with a new product!

 

 

To create both of my cards, I used Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper, a beautiful paper from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. It’s one of many retiring products from this catalog and is available while supplies last or May 3, 2021.  I combined it with a new product from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog (debuting on May 4, 2021) called the Scalloped Contours Dies. Both the sentiment piece and the one it’s layered on are from this set of dies. For the sentiment I used the stamp set Vine Design (from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalog) and stamped it in Memento Ink.

 

Scalloped Contours Dies Stampin Up

 

For this next card, I used all the same products as the card above but used Garden Green cardstock for the layer underneath the sentiment and I stamped the sentiment in Green Green Ink. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up both the sentiment piece and the layer underneath it. The base of each card is Thick Basic White cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Sneak Peek

Today’s card features two new products that you’ll be able to purchase on May 4th when the new Annual Catalog goes live! 

  • Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper #155499
  • 2021-2023 In Color Jewels #155571

 

 

I started with a piece of Highland Heather cardstock (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List).  Then I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside. Next, I added the beautiful Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper to the front of the card.  

 

 

Then I cut two rectangles using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies out of Highland Heather & Basic White cardstock.  I added the sentiment to the white rectangle using Highland Heather ink and then adhered the two rectangles together.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back (only on the top and in the center) and adhered it to the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.  

I cut a butterfly out of Highland Heather cardstock using the Brilliant Wings Dies and added half of a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional to the back (in the center) and adhered it to the Basic White rectangle.  I added a Fresh Freesia (one of our new colors) In Color Jewel to the center of the butterfly (the package includes all the new In Colors).  It’s hard to see how pretty this little gem is in my picture.

Today’s Card

Today I have another card featuring Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper.  I also used the retiring Scripty 3D Embossing Folder (available while supplies last and on sale) and the stamp set, Free as a Bird

 

Free as a Bird stamp set

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock and then added a layer of Basic White cardstock that was embossed with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder using the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Then I added a piece of Bumblebee cardstock and layered it with a piece of Fine Art Designer Series Paper and adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

Free as a Bird Layering Circles Dies

 

Using the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a scalloped circle out of Thick Basic White cardstock. Then I stamped my bird and the sentiment with Memento ink using the stamp set, Free as a Bird.  I colored the bird using Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends and for the ground, I used Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. I adhered the circle to a larger circle using Bumblebee cardstock (also cut out with the Layering Circles Dies). 

 

Free as a Bird Stampin Up

 

To complete the card, I added three Holiday Rhinestones in Pumpkin Pie. You can find the measurements I used below the Supply List.

Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper

Today’s card is a variation of the card I shared on Friday featuring Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper.  If you missed Friday’s card, you can see it here

 

Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper

 

I used one of the same designs I used on Friday’s card but for the smaller sections, I used Pool Party cardstock that I embossed with the Painted Texture embossing folder.

 

Sweet Ice Cream stamp set

 

The sentiment was stamped onto Basic White cardstock using Bermuda Bay ink and the stamp set, Sweet Ice Cream.  I cut it out using the Layering Circles Dies and then cut a larger, scalloped circle using the same dies out of Pool Party cardstock and layered it with the sentiment. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back before adhering it to the card front. To complete the card, I added three Holiday Rhinestones. You can find all the measurements I used below the Supply List.

Fine Art Floral Friday Tutorial

 

Today’s Friday Tutorial features Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper and the Layering Circles Dies. You can access my free tutorial below the Supply List.  

 

 

I’ll be honest, this is the first time I’ve used this particular sheet of paper (the gray one) from the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper pack. I tend to like bright colors but I have to say I really like this design combined with the vibrancy of the other paper which happens to be on the opposite side! Normally I would have reached for my Pretty Peacock stamp pad for the sentiment but since it’s sold out, I used Poppy Parade which I think works really well!

When I first purchased the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set, I cut the Happy Birthday stamp in half.  For this card, I cut the Thank You stamp in half so it would fit on the circle shape. The two words were really close together and yes, I was a bit scared to cut it but I did and it worked great! Now I can get more mileage out of this stamp set. I used my Paper Snips which are super sharp and a staple in my craft room to cut my stamp! I actually have two pairs of snips, I use one to cut Stampin’ Dimensionals in half or to cut something sticky and then I have a pair that’s just for paper, ribbon or to cut a stamp in half! 

 

Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set

 

This is a fun layout and it really takes no time at all to make a quick card.

Another Card Using Boho Indigo Refill Kit

Yesterday I shared a card using the Boho Indigo Refill Kit and today I have another card (a fun fold) using this same kit.  If you missed yesterday’s card, you can see it HERE.  

 

Boho Indigo Refill Kit

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock and then added a layer of Misty Moonlight cardstock to the front. Next, I folded a piece of Basic White cardstock in half and adhered it to the front of the card (use a heavy duty adhesive such as Tear & Tape, Multipurpose Glue, or Stampin’ Seal+).  

 

Quite Curvy Boho Indigo Refill Kit

 

Using my Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, I used the largest rectangular shape in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut a rectangle using Misty Moonlight cardstock and then using the next smaller size, I cut one out of the Boho Indigo Designer Series Paper (in the Boho Indigo Refill Kit).  I layered those two pieces together and then adhered them to the Basic White piece on the front of the card.

 

Boho Indigo Refill

 

 

I stamped the sentiment onto Basic White cardstock using  Misty Moonlight ink and the stamp set, Quite Curvy.  I cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies and also cut the shape the sentiment is adhered to with these dies as well. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Misty Moonlight cardstock and adhered it to the center of the card. I added a little drop of Multipurpose Glue to the back of the flower and adhered it below the sentiment (there are 40 flowers in the Boho Indigo Refill Kit).
