Stampin’ Up! Peony Garden Designer Series Paper

Today’s card features Peony Garden Designer Series Paper and the Best Year stamp set

 

Best Year Stamp Set

 

I used Thick Whisper White cardstock for the base of my card and then layered it with Pool Party and Basic Black cardstock.  Some texture was added to the Pool Party by using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Then there’s another layer of Basic Black with Peony Garden Designer Series Paper.  This layer was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped in Memento ink onto Whisper White cardstock, cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Three Holiday Rhinestones in Coastal Cabana were added to complete the card.  If you’d like to make today’s card, you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List.

Stampin’ Up! Seriously the Best

Seriously the Best

Before sharing my card with you today, I wanted to let you know that the Stitched So Sweetly Dies are on the Low Inventory List again. Once they go into Backorder status, there’s no indication how long the wait will be before they are back in stock.  Click here to see if they’re still in stock.  

Today’s card features the stamp set, Seriously the Best.  I love stamps with big bold sentiments and I was hoping this set would carry over into the new catalog but sadly, it isn’t. All retiring stamp sets will have guaranteed availability until May 22, 2020 and after that date, only while supplies last. 

 

Seriously the Best

 

Doesn’t this paper get you into a tropical frame of mind? My card on Monday was also made using Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper and if you missed it, you can see it here.  This paper debuted in the Mini Catalog and is on the retiring list.  The coordinating colors are:  Mango Melody, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Grapefruit Grove, Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, Real Red, Soft Sea Foam, Soft Suede, So Saffron and Whisper White. Stampin’ Up! takes the guesswork out of figuring out which colors to use with their papers! 

 

Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper

 

After adhering the Tropical Oasis DSP to the Mango Melody cardstock, I wrapped Linen Thread around the paper three times, tied a knot and then made a bow. The sentiment was cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies (also on the Low Inventory List) and then adhered to a piece of Mango Melody cardstock, cut out with the Layering Squares Dies. Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back to give it a nice pop.  To complete the card, I added three Gilded Gems. All the measurements I used can be found below the Supply List.

Stampin’ Up! Pleased as Punch

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Friendship

 

Note from Tracy:  Creating cards is a wonderful way to relieve stress and we’re all under so much of that right now.  I’m spending time in my craft room creating cards to share with you and it’s my hope that you’ll be inspired to start creating. Brighten someone’s day by sending them your beautiful card! Take Care, my friends. 

The card I’m sharing with you today was made using Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper.  This paper was released in early February to coordinate with Sale-a-Bration and Mini catalog products but will only be available until March 31, 2020 or while supplies last.  These are the products it coordinates with: 

 

Pleased as Punch DSP

 

The base of my card is Blushing Bride, not a color I use very often and I’m wondering why.  It’s really pretty! I added an embossed layer of Blushing Bride using the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder. The banner was cut using using the Banner Triple Punch. You can make banners with this punch in three widths – 1″, 1-1/2″, and 2″  but here’s a little trick: when choosing the 2″ width, trim your paper about a sixteenth of an inch so it will slide into the punch easily. 

 

Pleased as Punch DSP

 

Using the Leaf Punch, I punched out two leaves in Vellum cardstock. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Ink onto Whisper White paper using the stamp set Beautiful Friendship and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and also secured the leaves with the dimensionals.  I completed the card by adding three Glitter Enamel Dots, in Granny Apple Green.  You can find the measurements I used below the Supply List.  Stay safe and healthy!

Stampin’ Up! Small Bloom Punch

Stitched Shapes Dies

I hope this card brightens your day! 

To create today’s card, I used Pineapple Punch cardstock, one of our five 2018-2020 In Colors.  Each year five new colors are introduced and five are retired so Pineapple Punch will be gone in a few months.

Pineapple Punch cardstock

 

I used the Stitched Shapes Dies to create all the squares and to cut out the sentiment. The flowers were cut out using the Small Bloom Punch, a FREE Sale-a-Bration gift with a $100 purchase and available while supplies last. Each flower was attached to the stitched square using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional and a Gold Faceted Gem was added to the center of each one for some sparkle! 

 

Stitched Shapes Dies Stampin Up

 

 

The sentiment is from the stamp set Under My Umbrella and was stamped with Memento ink. To give a little more dimension to the care, it was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. With the help of the dies and punch, this card came together very quickly! 

Bundle Alert:  The Under My Umbrella Bundle includes the stamp set Under My Umbrella and the Umbrella Builder Punch.  You can purchase these items separately but when you use the special bundle item #153786, you’ll save 10%!

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils

Flowering Foils Stampin Up

 

To create today’s card I used Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper, a free Sale-a-Bration gift when you place a $50 order (before shipping/tax). You’ll receive (12)  12″ x 12″ sheets of these rose gold and silver foil designs.  This paper is only available until March 31, 2020 or while supplies last

 

 

I also used the stamp set, Seriously the Best, and embossed the sentiment with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I love the boldness of the sentiments in this set and when they’re embossed, a beautiful focal point is created. 

Seriously the Best

 

 

The beauty of this Designer Series Paper is that you can easily add any Stampin’ Up! color to the white areas.  I used Lovely Lipstick ink and applied it with a Sponge Dauber.  It’s a good idea to take a tissue or a soft cloth and rub it over the surface of the paper after applying color to pick up any ink that’s sitting on top of the raised foil. 

How to Heat Emboss

Rub an Embossing Buddy over the surface of your cardstock (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 for about 10 seconds to minimize warping of your paper. Direct the heat over your image and watch the magic happen!

Stampin’ Up! Coastal Weave Embossing Folder

Bloom & Grow Stampin Up

 

The card I’m sharing with you today was created using Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  If you’d like to make today’s card, you can find all the measurements below the Supply List. 

 

Best Dressed Designer Series Paper

 

One of the colors I used in today’s card is Lovely Lipstick, which is one of the 2018-2020 In Colors and will be retiring very soon! Anything in our retiring colors (paper, ink refills, stamp pads, etc.) always tend to sell out fast once the retiring list is published so if you love Lovely Lipstick, like I do, I’d recommend stocking up now! 

  

Best Dressed Designer Series Paper

 

The other colors I used are Whisper White and Petal Pink.  The sentiment is from the stamp set Bloom & Grow and it was stamped in Memento Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  It was cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered to a scalloped oval in Lovely Lipstick, cut out with the Layering Ovals Dies. To complete the card, I added three Glitter Enamel Dots in Melon Mambo.
