Stampin’ Up! Springtime Impressions

Noble Peacock Rhinestones

 

Happy Monday! I hope you had a nice weekend! Last week we went on a mini vacation where we were just a block away from the beach. Several mornings we got up and walked down to the beach to watch the waves and the surfers. I wish I could wake up to that every single morning.  It’s so calming and beautiful. While we were away, my husband, Mark, and I also celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary.  It was really nice getting away for a few days. 

When we got home from our vacation, I created today’s card which uses an oldie but goodie die, Springtime Impressions, which includes a beautiful die-cut butterfly.  

Springtime Impressions Dies

 

I paired it with our Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper and Blackberry Bliss cardstock. I absolutely love this Designer Series Paper. It’s gorgeous!

Springtime Impressions

I used the stamp set Parcels & Petals for the sentiment and inked it up with Blackberry Bliss.  I cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Dies and then cut a Blackberry Bliss scalloped oval using the Layering Ovals Dies. The Stitched Shapes Dies are very versatile because they coordinate with the Layering Circles Dies, Layering Squares Dies and Layering Ovals Dies.

The smaller layer of cardstock and Designer Series Paper was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals as well as the Blackberry Bliss scalloped oval. Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals were used on the back of the butterfly to give it dimension too!

Well Said Thanks

I love a stamp set that has many different sentiments to choose from and on today’s card I used the Well Said stamp set which includes 51 stamps! This set is jam packed with just about any sentiment you might need.  It also coordinates with the Well Written Dies. For a clearer picture of the stamps, click here to go to my online store.  Once there, click the “+” and you’ll see the stamps enlarged. 

 

Well Written Dies

It’s a bit hard to see what the dies look like in the photo above (since they are backwards) but here a few examples that show the dies and stamp set used together.

 

Back to today’s card! I used the 6″ x 6″ Brights Designer Series Paper in Bermuda Bay and cut the squares using the Layering Squares Dies. The other squares were cut out of Bermuda Bay cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies. I used the same Brights DSP for the banner and used the Banner Triple punch. Glitter Enamel Dots were added as a finishing touch.

This card will be my FREE Tuesday Tutorial so be sure to come back on Tuesday to grab it!

Stampin’ Up! Over the Moon

Over the Moon Stampin' Up!

Hello there! I’m glad you’ve stopped by for some stamping inspiration!

Today’s card features the stamp set Over the Moon and the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder, brand new products in the Annual Catalog! Initially I wasn’t going to purchase the Eyelet Lace embossing folder because I wasn’t really sure I liked it but am I glad I did because I love it!   (more…)

Hello Friend

Today’s card was created using Garden Lane Designer Series Paper. It’s part of the Garden Lane Suite which also includes the stamp set Verdant Garden which I also used on my card today.  

Garden Lane Designer Series Paper

I don’t normally use more than one stamp set but for this card I did.  The sentiment is from the stamp set, To a Wild Rose, shown below.  Look carefully and you might notice something that will make you shudder.  I cut the stamp, “To Be Your Friend”.  I realized that I would get more out of the stamp set if “friend” was by itself, so I took my Paper Snips and cut it! It IS a little scary but oh so worth it if you’ll use a particular stamp more often. 

To a Wild Rose

 

I used the stamp set Verdant Garden for the pretty little rose.  I thought it would make a nice little touch especially with the pop of color.  I used Watercolor Pencils to color it in and then smoothed it out with the Blender Pen.  Sometimes when you color with pencils, you can see streaks of color and a Blender Pen completely solves that problem! I hand cut the rose which was pretty easy to do.

Directions to Create Today’s Card

  • Cut a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock that measures 11″ x 4-1/4″.  Score at 5-1/2″ and fold in half.
  • Cut a piece of Garden Lane Designer Series Paper that measures 5-1/4″ x 4″,  Adhere to the front of the card.
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock that measures 3-3/4″ x 3-1/2″.  Cut a piece of Garden Lane Designer Series Paper that measures 3-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ and then attach it to the piece of Whisper White.  Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and attach to the front of the card.  
  • On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment using Mossy Meadow ink and the stamp set, To a Wild Rose.  Cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Dies and a die-cutting machine.  Cut another larger circle in Pool Party cardstock using the Layering Circles Dies. You’ll need to make one more circle in Mossy Meadow using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Layer all the pieces together using Snail. Turn it over and add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the right side and down the center. Turn it back over and attach to the card. 
  • Stamp the rose from the stamp set, Verdant Garden, in Memento Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  Color it using Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive Watercolor Pencils.  Use a Blender Pen to blend and smooth out the colors, if desired.  Add Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and attach to the sentiment.
