Host Code

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! Welcoming Window Bundle

Today’s card features the Welcoming Window Bundle (bundles always save you 10%) which includes the Welcoming Window stamp set and the Window Flower Box Dies.

 

Welcoming Window Bundle

 

I started with a base of Purple Posy cardstock and then added another layer of Purple Posy that I first ran through the Cut & Emboss Machine using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder

 

Brick & Mortar

 

Using the Welcoming Window stamp set, I stamped the flower pot image onto Basic White cardstock using a Terracotta Tile stamp pad, which is the perfect color for a flower pot.  I cut it out using the flower pot die in the Window Flower Box Dies. 

 

Welcoming Window Bundle

 

I did the flowers a little differently than I would normally do them.  Let me explain. I stamped the leaves in Old Olive ink and then, using a separate stamp, stamped the flowers in Highland Heather ink. Then I cut them out using one of the dies in the set. I wasn’t happy with the results because I pretty much cut off some important parts. So, I cut the shape FIRST, and then stamped onto the cut out. It was easy to do because the stamps are photopolymer and you can see right through them.  I nailed it on the first try. So, find what works for you!

 

Welcoming Window stamp set

 

Using the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a scalloped circle out of Gorgeous Grape cardstock and a circle out of Basic White cardstock and layered the two pieces together.  Before gluing the flower pot onto the circle, I figured out where I wanted it and then stamped the sentiment in Highland Heather ink using the stamp set, Welcoming Window. Then I glued the flower pot down, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the flowers and placed them on top of the flower pot. I used our Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack to make a bow and used Multipurpose Glue to adhere it to the flower pot.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the scalloped circle and placed it on the front of the card. 

 

 

Window Flower Box Dies

 

To complete the card, I added three Playing with Patterns Resin Dots in Purple Posy below the sentiment. If you’d like to make today’s card, you can find all the measurements I used below the Supply List.

Whisper White cardstock is no longer available but it’s replacement, Basic White is!! You can download a flyer HERE for all the new Basic White products and their item numbers.

Fun Fold Card with Painted Poppies

Forever Lovely Stamp Set

 

Today’s card is a fun fold that features the Painted Poppies stamp set and the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  If you’d like to give it a try, I have a video showing how to make it!

 

Forever Lovely Stamp Set

 

I used Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends to color the poppies and the flower inside the card but first I stamped the images using Memento Ink.  When using alcohol based pens such as Stampin’ Blends, the type of ink you use is important.  Because Memento Ink is a water-based dye ink, it’s perfect for use with Stampin’ Blends.

 

 

All the supplies I used can be found below in the supply list.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Dies

Happy Birthday to You Stampin Up

 

Today’s card features the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday to You stamp set, a free gift during Sale-a-Bration with a $50 order and the coordinating Birthday Dies. This stamp set is only available during Sale-a-Bration and only while supplies last! 

 

Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set

 

Happy Birthday to You Stampin Up

 

To get the beautiful texture on my Purple Posy cardstock, I used the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder and my die-cutting machine. I recommend using Multipurpose Glue to adhere the embossed pieces to the Thick Whisper White card base. 

After stamping the flower images using Memento Ink, I colored them with Purple Posy & Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. It was so easy cutting the flowers out with the Birthday Dies! I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered them to a circle of Whisper White cardstock that was cut out using the Layering Circles Dies.  The sentiment is from the stamp set, Fable Friends, and was inked up with Memento ink. A scalloped circle was cut out of Granny Apple Green cardstock, again using the Layering Circles Dies, and the Whisper White circle was adhered to this. Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back (only on the right hand side) before adhering it to the front of the card.
