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!

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!

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.

Today’s card features two new products – Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper and our Genial Gems

 

Stampin Up! Hand-Penned

 

I started with a base of Soft Sea Foam cardstock and then added another layer that I ran through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Painted Texture embossing folder. I cut a piece of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper and layered it with a piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock. 

 

Hand Penned Designer Series Paper

 

The sentiment was stamped onto Basic White cardstock using Misty Moonlight ink and was then cut out using the Layering Circles Dies. I used those same dies to cut a scalloped circle out of Soft Sea Foam and a larger one out of Misty Moonlight.  I layered these pieces with the sentiment and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it the front of the card. To complete the card, I added three Genial Gems for some sparkle! You can find all the measurements below the Supply List.

April Paper Pumpkin Billing Update

For those of you waiting for the April Paper Pumpkin to ship, Stampin’ Up! just posted this new update: As a result of the global shipping crisis, we are experiencing more delays than what we anticipated last week. We are doing our best to work quickly and will begin billing and shipping the middle of this week; however, it will take into next week to complete the billing and shipping for all orders. Details on when we will conduct our second billing this month will be forthcoming and dependent upon how the situation develops. We appreciate your understanding as we work through these global shipping difficulties and will continue to keep you updated.

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.

So Sentimental Bundle & Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper

Today I have two cards to share and they are variations of my Friday Tutorial last week. You can access that tutorial here for all the measurements.

Both cards were made using the So Sentimental Bundle (you always save 10% on bundles) which includes the stamp set, So Sentimental and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. The dies ARE returning in the new Annual Catalog but the stamp set is NOT.  Both cards were also made using Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper, my very favorite paper in the Mini Catalog and one of the Meadow Moments Embossing Folders. These embossing folders are small and will fit in our Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine

This first card has a base of Gorgeous Grape cardstock and for the piece under the sentiment is Highland Heather cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped in Misty Moonlight ink. 

 

 

 

So Sentimental Bundle

 

Since Seaside Spray cardstock has sold out (I’m really going to miss this color), I went with white on white for this card.  I used Night of Navy ink for the sentiment and the piece under the sentiment is cut out of Night of Navy cardstock.

 

Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper

 

Again, if you’d like the measurements, you can access the tutorial here

When products are retiring it’s always a good idea to pick up your favorites sooner rather than later because they could sell out.  To see all the retiring products, please click here.  Please be aware that not all items in our bundles are retiring but the bundle prices are. Some products are being reconfigured and are not retiring such as our Tear & Tape and some of our embossing powders.  If you have questions, let me know.

** Bundle includes some products that are not retiring; refer to the Retiring List above to see which individual products are retiring.

*** While the items in these bundles are not retiring, they will no longer be available in a bundle after 3 May 2021.

I don’t normally post a new card on Saturday but since this card uses Purple Posy cardstock,  one of our RETIRING 2019-2021 In Colors, I thought I better share it before it sells out. FYI:  Pretty Peacock & Seaside Spray cardstock have already sold out. 

 

Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper

 

Another retiring product I used to create my card is the Triple Banner Punch. You can always make a banner with your Paper Snips but I like using the punch for a precise cut. This punch is available while supplies last! 

 

Triple Banner Punch

 

I started with a piece of Purple Posy cardstock and added a layer of Basic White cardstock that I embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  The banner was made using Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper and the Triple Banner Punch.  The sentiment was stamped in Blackberry Bliss cardstock using the stamp set, Sweet Ice Cream.  I cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies and added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back before adhering it to the front. I completed the card by adding three Opal Rounds (these are on backorder but should be back in stock in early April).

Tasteful Touches Bundle:  This bundle includes the Tasteful Labels Dies and the Tasteful Touches stamp set.  Both of these products will be returning in the new Annual Catalog but this is your last chance to get them together in a bundle.  Bundles always save you 10%!
