Pretty Perennials Card Sampler

I have a new Card Sampler to share with you but first . . . .  

I make every effort to ensure that my tutorials are mistake-free, in fact I’m a bit obsessive about it, but unfortunately some measurements are incorrect on the Dragonfly Garden tutorial from January 29th. You can find the corrected version HERE.  If you already downloaded and printed it, or tried to make the card, I apologize for any inconvenience. 

 

 

My Pretty Perennials Card Sampler is now available but only for a limited time!

Here’s how you can earn my FREE Pretty Perennials Card Sampler:

  • Place a minimum $50 order (before tax/shipping) at my Stampin’ Up! online store.
  • Use my special Pretty Perennials Card Sampler Host Code when placing your order: YRCQJYRC
  • Place your order on or before Saturday, February 27, 2021.
  • If your order reaches $150 or more, please DO NOT use the host code so you can receive Stampin’ Rewards (free product directly from Stampin’ Up!).  Once you place your order, simply drop me an email (only necessary if your order is over $150) letting me know that you’d like the Pretty Perennials Card Sampler.  If I don’t hear from you, I’ll assume you’d prefer to receive my regular card kits.

Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart

Today’s card features my favorite Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Heal Your Heart. This stamp set is absolutely free when you place a $50 order but only until February 28, 2021. 

 

Heal Your Heart

 

Heal Your Heart

 

I started with a base of Seaside Spray cardstock and then added a layer of Basic White cardstock that was embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Then I added another layer of Seaside Spray and the GORGEOUS Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper.  I popped that layer up with Stampin’ Dimenisonals. 

 

Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper

 

Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper

 

The sentiment was stamped onto Basic White cardstock using Seaside Spray ink and the stamp set Heal Your Heart. I cut it out using the Layering Circles Dies. The sentiment is layered onto another piece of Seaside Spray cardstock cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies.  The Stitched Shapes dies coordinate beautifully with our Layering Circles Dies, Layering Squares Dies and Layering Ovals Dies. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the upper part of the sentiment (just the part that touches the Designer Series Paper).  To complete the card, I added three clear Elegant Faceted Gems. You can find all the measurements I used below the Supply List.

Host Code

Anyone who places an order at my Stampin’ Up! online store, receives a card kit and each kit includes all the paper and embellishments needed to create a beautiful card.  The paper will be cut, scored and embossed for you.  You’ll just need to supply your own ink, stamp and adhesive. Use my host code below when placing your online order of $150 or less and I’ll send you an extra card kit! Orders over $150 will automatically receive an extra card kit.  The reason you don’t want to use the host code when placing a $150 or more order is that when you reach $150, you hit the sweet spot and begin earning Stampin’ Rewards directly from Stampin’ Up!.  When your order is over $150 AND you use a host code, you forfeit your rewards and I don’t want that to happen. So, under $150, use the host code.  Over $150, do not use the host code and start earning free product!  If you have any questions, please let me know.

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Bundle

Today’s card features the Dragonfly Garden Bundle which includes the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and the Dragonflies Punch.  I also used the Lots of Heart stamp set for my sentiment. 

Dragonfly Garden Bundle

 

Dragonfly Garden Bundle

 

I started with a base of Pool Party cardstock. Then I embossed a piece of Basic White cardstock using the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.  I wrapped a piece of our beautiful Pool Party Sheer Ribbon around the cardstock and then adhered the panel to the card base. 

 

Dragonflies Punch

 

I cut a square using the Layering Squares Dies out of Pool Party cardstock and another, smaller one, out of Basic White cardstock.  Before layering the two pieces together, I stamped the sentiment using Memento Ink and the stamp set, Lots of Heart, to the Basic White square.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Pool Party square and placed it on the card front. 

 

Layering Squares Dies

 

I stamped the dragonfly on a piece Vellum cardstock using Versamark ink and then sprinkled Silver Embossing Powder over it.  I used my Heat Tool to melt the embossing powder and then cut the dragonfly out using the Dragonflies Punch. On the back of the vellum, I colored the dragonfly using my Pool Party Blends.  I put a Mini Glue Dot on the top left wing and one on the bottom right wing and adhered it to the Basic White scalloped square. 

 

 

To complete the card, I added five Artistry Blooms Sequins (they have adhesive on the back) to the front and added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside of the card. If you’d like to make today’s card, you can find all the measurements I used below the Supply List.

Stampin’ Up! Many Hearts Dies

Today’s card is a last minute Valentine’s Day card featuring the Many Hearts Dies and the stamp set, Heartfelt

 

Heartfelt stamp set

 

 

I started with a base of Basic White Thick cardstock and then added a layer of Real Red cardstock along with a layer of Basic White cardstock that was embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

Using the Many Hearts Dies, I cut a heart out of Real Red, another smaller heart out of Vellum cardstock and the flowers (inside the vellum heart) out of Blushing Bride cardstock.  To attach the flowers to the Vellum heart, I used our Mini Glue Dots in various places on the back. Then I added Glue Dots to the Vellum where I knew they wouldn’t be seen and adhered it to the red heart. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the red heart and placed it on the front of the card.

 

Many Hearts Dies

 

The sentiment was stamped onto Basic White cardstock using the stamp set, Heartfelt. I cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies. It’s popped up using Stampin’ Dimensionals. You can find the measurements I used below the Supply List.
