A New Take on Two Cards

Today I’m sharing several variations of cards I shared last month. Once I have a card design I like, I try to change it up a bit with different colors or Designer Series Paper.  Do you do that too?

I’m in love with the New Horizons Designer Series Paper. This paper makes is so easy to create an easy but pretty card!  For this first card, I used a different design than my original card which you can see here (you can find the measurements and supplies I used too). The only thing I did differently is that I used Blackberry Bliss cardstock but other than that, all the supplies and measurements are the same. 

 

 

These next two cards were made using the Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Friendly Hello.  This stamp set can be earned free during Sale-a-Bration with a $100 order and it includes a package of Friendly Hello 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. You can see the original card here (you also find a free tutorial) for measurements I used but I’ll include the supplies for these next two cards down below because I changed up what I used. 

This first card has a base of Fresh Freesia cardstock and I used Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper. I stamped the bird and sentiment using Memento Ink and then colored the bird and flowers using these Stampin’ Blends:  Balmy Blue (Light & Dark), Fresh Freesia (Light & Dark), Crumb Cake (Light), Daffodil Delight (Dark) and Mossy Meadow (Light).  I colored the Polished Dots using the Dark Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blend. 

 

Friendly Hello

 

This next card has a base of Balmy Blue cardstock. I used Simply Marbleous 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper which is also a Sale-a-Bration gift you can choose with a $50 purchase. I colored the bird using the same Stampin’ Blends as I did for the card above.  I colored the Polished Dots using the Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend.

Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Bundle

Today’s card features the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Bundle which includes the stamp set, Hand-Penned Petals and the Penned Flowers Dies. I also used the Scalloped Contours Dies and Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper. This Designer Series Paper is FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration  but only until February 28, 2022.

The inspiration for today’s card came from fellow demonstrator, Brian King. You can see his beautiful card, here

 

 

Hand-Penned Petals Bundle

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock for the base of my card.  Then, I adhered a piece of Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper that I cut out using the Scalloped Contours Dies. Using these same dies, I cut another rectangle out of Basic White cardstock and then stamped the sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink towards the bottom. 

 

Hand-Penned Petals Stampin Up

 

 

I used the Penned Flowers Dies to cut the flowers out of Blackberry Bliss cardstock. I added small dots of Multipurpose Glue to the back of the flowers and then placed them on the Basic White rectangle (if you’d like this step to be much easier, I’d recommend using our Adhesive Sheets).  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the rectangle and adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

Scalloped Contours Dies Stampin Up

 

I love our Polished Dots and reach for them over and over again! It’s so easy to color these dots using Stampin’ Blends in a color that will  match your card (as of this writing, they are in low inventory status)! I used the Light Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blend to color three of the Polished Dots and then added them to the front of my card.

Stampin’ Up! Free Friendly Hello Bundle

Today’s card was made with the Friendly Hello Bundle, a Sale-a-Bration product you can earn FREE with a $100 order. It includes the Friendly Hello stamp set and Friendly Hello 12″ x 12′ Designer Series Paper. 

 

 

 

I started with a base of Fresh Freesia cardstock and then added a layer of Basic cardstock and three pieces of Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper (you can find all the measurements I used below the Supply List). I then cut a piece of Basic White cardstock using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies

 

 

I stamped the bird and sentiment onto the stitched rectangle using Memento ink and then colored the bird and flowers with Stampin’ Blends. The bird was colored with both the Light & Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blends and the flowers with Fresh Freesia Light & Dark Stampin’ Blends.  I used Light Crumb Cake to color the branch. Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back and I adhered it to the front of the card. I also adhered a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside of the card. 

 

 

To complete my card, I used my Light Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blend to color three clear Polished Dots and then placed them on the card front.

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.

Stampin’ Up! Words of Cheer Bundle

Today’s card features the Words of Cheer Bundle which includes the Words of Cheer stamp set and the Christmas Cheer Dies. You can purchase the dies and stamp set separately but with the bundle, you’ll save 10%. I also used one of the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders

 

 

 

I started with a base of Real Red cardstock and then added a layer of Old Olive cardstock. On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive ink at the bottom.  Then I placed it inside one of the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders (I used the dots) and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. The entire piece of paper will not fit inside the folder but that’s okay because you don’t want the sentiment to be embossed, so some of your paper will be sticking out of the embossing folder. I adhered this piece to the front of the card. 

 

 

 

I stamped the flowers using Memento Ink onto Basic White cardstock and then colored it using both the Light & Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends and the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend.  I used both the Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends to color the leaves. Once I finished coloring, I used the Christmas Cheer Dies to cut it out. I added quite a few Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and then placed it on the front of the card. To complete the card, I added a rhinestone to the center of each flower and adhered a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside.

Stampin’ Up! Sweets & Treats

Today’s card features the Sweets & Treats stamp set and the Scalloped Contours Dies. These dies have been on backorder for several months but are available again as well as the Color & Contour Bundle which includes the Color & Contour stamp set and the Scalloped Contours Dies.

 

Sweets & Treats Stampin Up

 

 

I started with a base of Thick Basic White cardstock and then added a layer of Real Red cardstock along with a piece of Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper.  Then I used the Scalloped Contours Dies to cut a piece of Basic White cardstock. Onto the rectangle, I used Memento ink to stamp the pie stand using the stamp set, Sweets & Treats. Then I stamped the pie cover. I colored the pie stand using Real Red Stampin’ Blends.

 

Sweets & Treats

 

 

On another piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the pie and heart.  I colored the pie using Crumb Cake & Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends (my husband loves blueberry pie so I made my pie, blueberry).  I used Crumb Cake & Real Red Stampin’ Blends to color the heart.  I fussy cut each one out and then adhered them to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  If I make the card again, I won’t use Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the pie but use regular adhesive instead. 

 

Sweets & Treats stamp set Stamping with Tracy

 

I stamped the sentiment onto Basic White cardstock in Memento Ink using the stamp set, Sweets & Treats. It was cut out using the Seasonal Labels Dies (a new set of dies in the Mini Catalog). I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card front.  To complete the card, I added two Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestones, to each end of the sentiment.
