Sale-a-Bration Thoughtful Blooms

Small Bloom Punch

 

To create my card to share with you today, I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp set Thoughtful Blooms and the Small Bloom Punch.  These two coordinating products are FREE Sale-a-Bration products you can earn.  When you place a $50 order, you can choose the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set and with a $100 order, the Small Bloom Punch.  All products in the Sale-a-Bration catalog are while supplies last (two products have already sold out – the Kerchief Card Kit and the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack). 

 

 

I started by adhering two panels of Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper to the Pool Party card base (you can find all the measurements I used below the supply list).  I added another panel of Whisper White to the inside of the card. 

The sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento Ink and then cut out using the Starburst Punch.  I adhered it to a larger piece of Pool Party cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies and a die-cutting machine.  On the back, Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the right side and then attached to the card.  

 

Small Bloom Punch

 

I stamped three flowers, two in Highland Heather ink and one in Pool Party and then cut them out with the Small Bloom Punch. I adhered the Highland Heather flowers to the card using Multipurpose Glue but the Pool Party flower has a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional on the back.  To complete the card, I added a pearl to the inside of each flower.

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments

Peaceful Moments

 

I love the sentiment on today’s card from the stamp set, Peaceful Moments.  Every time I read it, I’m reminded to stop and smell the roses and appreciate every day.

 

Peaceful Moments Stampin Up

 

To create today’s card, I layered a piece of Golden Honey Designer Series Paper (FREE with a $50 order) onto Basic Black cardstock and then adhered it to my Daffodil Delight card base.

 

Golden Honey Designer Series Paper

The sentiment was stamped in Memento Ink and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies using a die-cutting machine. Using the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a Daffodil Delight circle and a Basic Black scalloped circle.  The sentiment was adhered to the Daffodil Delight circle using Snail adhesive and then Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back before adhering it to the Basic Black scalloped circle.  Before attaching it to the front of the card, more Stampin’ Dimensionals were added.  To complete the card, I added three rhinestones. 

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

Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up! Stitched Shapes Dies

Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper

 

Today’s card features Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog.  This paper is part of the Year-End Closeout and is only available while supplies last.  The designs in this pack of paper coordinate with Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and Old Olive (three colors I used for today’s card) as well as Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Poppy Parade, and Pretty Peacock.

 

Night Before Christmas

 

I used the stamp set, Itty Bitty Christmas, which includes 18 different stamps!  The sentiment was stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies. The Cherry Cobbler scalloped oval in Old Olive was cut out with the Layering Ovals Dies. 

I also used the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut out the Designer Series Paper.  The Old Olive scalloped square was cut out using the Layering Squares Dies.  The Cherry Cobbler cardstock was embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder (this item is not one of the retiring Holiday Catalog products).

Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper

Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper

Happy Monday!

Today’s card is all about foil! If you like sparkle, you’re going to love Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper.  Each sheet in this 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper is double-sided with a beautiful foil pattern on one side and realistic designs on the other.  I combined two of the foil designs to create today’s card. It can be really difficult to photograph foil paper and the beauty of the paper is hard to capture but it’s very pretty in person! 

itty bitty Christmas stamp set

I embossed my sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. At this time of year embossing adds a special touch to your cards. To cut the sentiment out, I used the Stitched Shapes Dies. The scalloped circle underneath it was cut out with the Layering Circles Dies. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the scalloped oval as well as the smaller panel of foil and cardstock.

Heat Embossing Directions

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 so the paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch the magic happen!

Stampin’ Up! Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper

Night Before Christmas

Today’s card features Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper and the stamp set, Itty Bitty Christmas. I also used the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder and I have to tell you, every time I make a card and emboss a piece of it, I look through all my embossing folders but this is the one I gravitate towards.  It’s just perfect for holiday cards (and more)! 

 

Night Before Christmas

 

Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set

 

 

As you can see from the picture above, I made a second card using Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the Subtle Embossing Folder, another great folder when you want just a hint of embossing. 

 

To add some sparkle, before adhering the second layer to the card base, I wrapped our 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon in Gold around the cardstock and tied a bow. The sentiment was stamped in Cherry Cobbler, on both cards, and cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  The larger scalloped oval was cut out using the Layering Ovals Dies.

Kindness & Compassion Condolence Card

Layered Leaves

Condolence cards are the most difficult cards to make but I recently needed one to send to my cousin’s wife.  Matthew passed away several weeks ago and he was only 48 years old. Far too young to leave us. 

I love everything about the Kindness & Compassion stamp set.  It’s always difficult finding the right words to say to someone who’s experiencing extreme grief and convey that you care. This set has a variety of beautiful sentiments written in a beautiful font. Plus it includes “thank you.”

Kindness & Compassion

 

I used a base of Thick Whisper White with another layer of Whisper White, embossed with the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  The sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy and cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  The larger Night of Navy oval underneath it was cut out using the Layering Ovals Dies.
