Stampin’ Up! Garden Birdhouses

I think I’ve mentioned before that my husband and I have several bird feeders in our backyard.  When I saw the Garden Birdhouses stamp set, I knew I had to have it.  Cute birds and birdhouses? Yes, please! 

 

Garden Birdhouses

 

Garden Birdhouses stamp set

 

I started with a base of Thick Basic White cardstock and then added a layer of Misty Moonlight cardstock and Basic White cardstock (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). I layered pieces of Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper to pieces of Balmy Blue cardstock and then adhered them to the card front.  Sweet Symmetry is one of nine Designer Series Papers on sale until August 2nd! 

 

 

Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper

 

I stamped the branch and birdhouse onto Basic White cardstock using Memento Ink and the Garden Birdhouses stamp set.  I colored the birdhouse using Balmy Blue and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends.  I used Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to fill in areas of the branch and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends to color the leaves. At the last minute I decided to add the bird and stamped it with Memento Ink and colored it with Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends. 

I layered the birdhouse onto a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock and then added Stampin’ Blends to the back and adhered it to the Balmy Blue/Designer Series Paper panels.  The sentiment was stamped  in Memento Ink and cut out with the Tasteful Labels Dies (these dies can be used with Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine).  On the back, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the right-side only and adhered the sentiment below the birdhouse.

Today’s card is a variation of the card I posted yesterday.  If you missed yesterday’s card, you can see it here. I changed up the color of the cardstock, used a different sentiment and embossed my cardstock using the Stitched Greenery Die.

 

Hand Penned Petals Bundle

 

The base of my card is Thick Basic White cardstock with layers of Pale Papaya cardstock that I embossed using the Stitched Greenery Die. This die is used like any other die but your paper comes out of the  Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine embossed! 

 

 

I stamped the flowers onto Basic White cardstock using Memento ink and the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set. They were colored using Pale Papaya and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  I cut them out using the coordinating Penned Flowers Dies. You can purchase this stamp set and dies as a bundle and save 10%.

 

 

 

The scalloped rectangle was cut out of Basic White cardstock using the Scalloped Contours Dies and the sentiment was stamped in Memento Ink with the stamp set Beauty of Friendship.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the flowers before adhering them to the scalloped rectangle.

 

 

On the back of the scalloped rectangle, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals, on the right side only, before adhering it to the card base.

Potpourri Card Sampler

Potpourri Card Sampler

 

My Card Samplers give you the chance to “sample” different products. You are able to see our Designer Series Paper, cardstock, embossed paper, die cuts and embellishments “in person” as you assemble the cards.  Usually all three cards have one product in common but this Sampler was made using a variety of products so I called it Potpourri!

Place a minimum $50 order (before shipping/tax) at my Stampin’ Up! online store using the host code VREDTDDM and as a thank you, you’ll receive my Potpourri Card Sampler which includes 6 card kits (2 each of three different designs) with envelopes and a PDF Tutorial with instructions, pictures and a supply list. You’ll receive all the paper and embellishments needed to make the cards and all the paper will be cut, scored and die cut for you (you’ll need to supply your own adhesive, ink and stamp set). If your order is $150 or more, please do not use the host code so you can earn Stampin’ Rewards (free product) directly from Stampin’ Up! After placing your order, please contact me to let me know you’d like the Potpourri Card Sampler (you only need to contact me if your order is $150 or more).  If I don’t hear from you, I’ll assume you’d like my regular card kits. The last day this offer will be available is Saturday, June 26, 2021. For all the details, please click here

Flowers of Friendship and an Animal Print

Today I’m sharing several more versions of the card I shared on Friday.  For these versions, I used different colors and the new Animal Print embossing folder. On Friday I shared a FREE PDF Tutorial for this card using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  If you’d like the measurements I used, you can see that post here and be sure to scroll down past the Supply List to access the tutorial. 

All three of my cards today were made using the Stampin’ Up! Flowers of Friendship stamp set. For this first card I used Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends and Fresh Freesia cardstock. 

 

Flowers of Friendship

 

For this next card, I used Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends and Pale Papaya cardstock. 

 

Flowers of Friendship Pale Papaya

 

For this last card, I used Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends and Poppy Parade cardstock. 

 

Flowers of Friendship

 

Animal Print Embossing Folder

 

Flowers of Friendship is a great stamp set for coloring, especially for someone who doesn’t have much experience using our Blends. The coloring areas aren’t super detailed so it makes for a relaxing experience! 

 

Flowers of Friendship stamp set

 

The Flowers of Friendship Bundle (bundles save you 10%) is also available.  It includes the Flowers of Friendship stamp set and the Flowers & Leaves punch.

Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Bundle

Today’s card features the Nothing’s Better Than bundle.  How can you go wrong with a stamp set and dies that feature not only chocolate but cookies and cocktails too??!!  Yes, please! 

 

Cinnamon Cider Stampin Up! Blends

 

Nothing's Better Than Bundle Stampin Up

 

I started with a base of Crumb Cake cardstock and added a layer of our 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper in Cider Cinnamon. I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (this is the largest die in the set) and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

 

Stitched So Sweetly Dies

 

Before cutting the words “Love You More Than Cookies” in Cinnamon Cider cardstock using the Love You More Than Dies, I adhered the cardstock to our brand new Adhesive Sheets. I love these sheets!!! I tend to shy away from intricate designs that require being super careful when applying glue but these sheets make it so easy. Peel the sheet from the cardstock and your glue is applied! Easy and mess-free! 

 

Stitched So Sweetly Dies

 

In the stamp set, Nothing’s Better Than, there are two stamps to create the cookies but I used just one.  I used the stamp with the outline of the cookie and chocolate chips and stamped it in Early Espresso and then used my Light Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blend to color them in.  They were cut out using the Love You More Than dies. The center cookie was adhered to the card using Multipurpose Glue but the outside ones have a Stampin’ Dimensional on the back. Hmmm, suddenly I’m in the mood to bake some cookies!

If you’d like the measurements for today’s card, you can find them below the Supply List.

Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Bundle

Under My Umbrella

 

I used the bundle, Under My Umbrella, to create today’s card. This bundle includes the stamp set, Under My Umbrella and the Umbrella Builder Punch.  You can purchase both of these products separately but if you want both of them, be sure to use the special bundle item number and you’ll save 10%. 

 

Under My Umbrella Bundle

 

The base of my card is Thick Whisper White with a panel of Real Red cardstock. On Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the raindrops using Seaside Spray ink.  The umbrella, handle, boots and flowers were all stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento Ink and I used Real Red and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends to color them all in.  The umbrella and handle were cut out with the punch and I fussy cut the boots and flowers. 

 

Umbrella Builder Punch

I embossed the sentiment and here are some quick instructions how to do that:

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing the Embossing Buddy over the surface (this helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder).  Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it.  Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image.  Shake off any excess.  Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool first so the paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch the magic happen! 

 

 

The umbrella and flowers were both popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals (the handle and boots were adhered with Multipurpose Glue).

If you’d like to make today’s card, you’ll find all the measurements below the Supply List.
