Fun Fold Springtime Impressions Card

Today’s card is very similar to one I shared several weeks ago and you can see it here.  The card I’m sharing today features the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies and Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.  The card has a unique fold and I’ve made a video showing how easy it is to put together.  Be sure to check it out towards the bottom of the post!

Stampin’ Up! Garden Impressions Suite

One of the things I love about Stampin’ Up! is how well their products coordinate.  I don’t have to worry what colors coordinate with our beautiful papers because Stampin’ Up! does that for me! They have also put suites of products together that coordinate with one another, in fact there are 14 different suites in the annual catalog and one of my favorites is the Garden Impressions Suite.  I know that if I purchase the Blossom Elements (the little flowers above), they will match the colors in the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper. I love that!!

Two other products in the Garden Impressions Suite are the stamp set Abstract Impressions and the coordinating Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies. You can purchase these two products separately but they are also available at a bundle price with a savings of 10% (there are actually 32 different bundles in the Annual Catalog)!  

I want to share with you a video by Stampin’ Up! showing the Abstract Impressions Bundle in action.  You’ll also see more of the products from the Garden Impressions Suite.  There’s a great tip at the end for using the floral thinlits and our Designer Series Paper, so don’t miss it!  If you have questions about any of the products in the Garden Impressions Suite, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Stampin’ Up! Graceful Glass Designer Vellum

Today’s card uses the Graceful Glass 6″ x 6″ Designer Vellum and the new stamp set Abstract Impressions.  The Graceful Glass Vellum is perfect for coloring with your favorite coloring tool and comes with 24 sheets (2 each of 12 single-sided designs), with each sheet measuring 6″ x 6″.

When I attended the Stampin’ Up! event On Stage, in April, I received a Light Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend and a Dark Pineapple Punch. I used both of these pens to color the vellum on my card as well as a Light Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend.  I colored the back side of the vellum and then attached a glue dot on the back in each corner to attach it to the front of my card.

There are 11 brand new colors of Stampin’ Blends in the catalog, included Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch.  They currently are not available but should be in stock very soon.  As soon as I hear they have arrived in the warehouse, I’ll let you know! I plan to purchase them just as soon as I can.

The three colors of cardstock I used are Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch and Whisper White.  I ran the piece of Whisper White through the Big Shot using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Lovely Lipstick. and cut out with Big Shot using the Layering Ovals Framelits.  These framelits were also used to cut out the scalloped Pineapple Punch oval. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and attached it to the front of the card.

All of the supplies I used to create today’s card, with the exception of the Pineapple Punch and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends, are listed below.  For more information or to place an order, simply click any of the images and you’ll be directed to my Stampin’ Up! online store.

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Floral

Today’s card features the embossing folder Lovely Floral and the stamp set Detailed with Love. I also used a brand new color, Gorgeous Grape! I was sad to hear that Elegant Eggplant was being retired but oh my goodness, I love Gorgeous Grape!

After embossing my Whisper White cardstock with the Lovely Floral folder, I grabbed my Sponge Daubers and my Gorgeous Grape and Lemon Lime Twist stamp pads.  I brushed each dauber into the stamp pad and then tapped it on my Grid Paper so the ink wouldn’t be too dark.  Then I went over each area of the raised image with both colors.  It’s really easy to do!  I will be very honest and admit that going off of the raised lines bothered me but I’m happy with the overall look.

I stamped my sentiment, using the stamp set Detailed with Love, with Gorgeous Grape, and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I ran Gorgeous Grape cardstock through the Big Shot using the Layering Ovals Framelits and then glued the sentiment to it.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Gorgeous Grape for even more dimension.  Definitely a quick and easy card! 


  • Gorgeous Grape (base of card):  11″ x 4-1/4″ 
  • Whisper White (embossed piece):  5-1/4″ x 4″

Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper

I’m always excited to see all the brand new Designer Series Papers when a new catalog is released and this year I couldn’t be happier with the selection! Did you know that most of our Designer Series Papers also have a matching cardstock pack?  Each cardstock pack includes 24 sheets in three colors that coordinate with the paper. Add some Whisper White or Very Vanilla and you’ll have everything you need to start making quick and easy cards! At the end of today’s post, I’ve included a supply list of all the Designer Series Paper in the catalog as well as the cardstock packs that match.

Stampin’ Up! has created a video highlighting almost all of the paper offered in the catalog so I’m including it in today’s post.  It’s a great way to see if any of the papers appeal to you.  I’m also including a short video that goes behind the scenes of the making of our Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.  It’s really interesting!


Stampin’ Up! Climbing Vine

My Stampin’ Up! goodies from the new catalog arrived on Friday! I love embossing folders so I was really excited to try the one I used on today’s card called Climbing Vine. I can already tell that it’s one I’ll be grabbing for all the time!

The Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper is also a new product but as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I was able to preorder it a month before the Annual Catalog was released.  I love all the bright designs in this package of paper and I especially love the one I used on my card today.  If I could, I’d buy an entire pack of this one design!

My sentiment is from the new stamp set, Kindness & Compassion and it was stamped with a Night of Navy Stampin’ Pad. This is a really nice set to have when you want to let someone know how much you care.


I cut the sentiment out using the Layering Ovals Framelits and layered it using So Saffron and Night of Navy scalloped ovals, which are also included in the Layering Ovals Framelits.
