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.

Supplies Used for Today’s Card

Stampin’ Up! Stitched Labels Framelits

Today’s card uses the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Labels Framelits, a brand new set of dies in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. When the Stitched Shapes Framelits came out, several years ago, I fell in love with them and the Stitched Labels Framelits have that same gorgeous look of stitching around each die.  

The framelits I’ve used today do have a matching stamp set called Stitched All Around and when purchased together in a bundle, you’ll save 10%. For today’s card though, I used a sentiment from another stamp set called Abstract Impressions.  This set is also part of a bundle and to see a complete list of all thirty-two bundles in the catalog, click here.  

I used the beautiful Share What You Love Designer Series Paper. This paper was available last month only in a bundle but now you can purchase it separately. The price is a little hefty but it comes with a whopping 24 sheets and each sheet is on heavyweight paper.  Four of the designs, including the one I used today, have a pearlized finish to them.  

After creating my layers of So Saffron, Basic Black and Designer Series Paper, I stamped the sentiment onto Very Vanilla cardstock in Memento Black Ink and cut it out with the Big Shot.  I attached Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and placed it on the front of the card.  I made a bow using Linen Thread and attached it right below the sentiment.  Normally I use glue dots to attach my bows but for whatever reason, it just wouldn’t stay on the card so I used our Multipurpose glue and it worked great!

Measurements

  • So Saffron (base of the card):  11″ x 4-1/4″
  • Basic Black:  5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Share What You Love Designer Series Paper:  5″ x 3-3/4″

Stampin’ Up! Detailed with Love

On Tuesday I shared another card very similar to the one I’m sharing today.  I used the same color combination of Blackberry Bliss, Highland Heather and Pool Party but as you can see from the photo below, I made just a few changes.  You can read all about Tuesday’s card, here.  

Today’s card starts with a base of Blackberry Bliss measuring 11″ x 4-1/4″. The next layer is Highland Heather that measures 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Before adding the 5″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock to the top, I ran it through the Layered Leaves embossing folder using the Big Shot. I added Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals right down the middle of my Pool Party butterfly that was cut using the Springtime Impressions Thinlits.  The butterfly is very secure on the card with just those two dimensionals and I love how it looks sitting on the card. 

The sentiment is from the new stamp set, Detailed with Love and it was stamped using a Blackberry Bliss stamp pad. Both the sentiment and Highland Heather oval were cut out using the Big Shot Layering Ovals Framelits (these framelits are currently on the Low Inventory List and might go into backorder status soon so I wouldn’t delay if you’ve had your eye on them).  I finished the card off with three pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.  They are so delicate and pretty! 

All of the supplies I used to create today’s card are listed below.  To place an order, click any of the images and you’ll be taken to my Stampin’ Up! online store.  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!

Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions

I used the Abstract Impressions stamp set and the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper to create today’s card.  It’s so quick and easy to make!

I started with a base of Melon Mambo cardstock that measured 11″ x 4-1/4″ and I scored it at 5-1/2″.  It isn’t necessary to score but I’m always much happier with the results than if I just folded.  Next, I cut down a piece of Garden Impression DSP to 5″ x 3-3/4″ and layered it onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock that measured 5-1/4″ x 4″.

I took our 1/8″ Black Cord and wrapped it around the Basic Black, attaching it in two places on the back.  At first I tried using Snail adhesive to attach the ends of the cord to the back but it just wouldn’t stay but our Multipurpose Liquid Glue did the trick.  Then I attached Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and attached it to the card base.  

 

Using Memento Ink and Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment using the stamp set Abstract Impressions. Then I cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  If I can, I always prefer cutting AFTER stamping because it allows me to get the sentiment exactly where I want.  I cut a Basic Black scalloped square using the Layering Squares Framelits, added the sentiment to the front, attached Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and attached it all to the front of the card.

Springtime Impressions by Stampin’ Up!

Have you heard about the Stampin’ Up! Color Revamp? Six returning In Colors have joined the core collection plus we have nine brand new colors.  And on top of that, five new In Colors have joined the lineup! (To get a closer look at these colors, click the images).

My card today uses Blackberry Bliss, Highland Heather and Pool Party.  I participated in a challenge using these three colors together and this is the card I came up with! Unfortunately Blackberry Bliss is looking a bit more like black in my photo but if you look at the collections photo above, you’ll get a better sense of the true color. 

I layered Blackberry Bliss and Highland Heather together and added another layer of Whisper White that was embossed with the Layering Leaves embossing folder.  I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss using the brand new stamp set, Accented Blooms (this stamp set coordinates with the Tailored Tag Punch).
