Stampin’ Up! Perennial Postage Bundle

I haven’t posted since last week because I’ve been ill and didn’t want to do much of anything. I’m finally feeling much better.

Today’s card was made using the Perennial Postage Bundle, Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper, Paper Butterfly Accents and Purple Fine Shimmer Gems (these gems are currently not available but are expected to be back in stock the week of March 11). 

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock for the base of my card. Then I cut two pieces of Highland Heather cardstock and two different designs of Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper and adhered them together before adding them to the front of my card. 

 

 

 

I stamped the sentiment onto Basic White cardstock using Gorgeous Grape ink and the stamp set Perennial Postage. I cut the sentiment out using the Perennial Postage Dies, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

 

 

I used a Blending Brush to brush Highland Heather ink over the front of the Paper Accents Butterfly. I then added Multipurpose Glue to the back and adhered it to the sentiment. To complete my card, I added three Purple Fine Shimmer Gems to the sentiment.

Ten Days Left to Purchase the Starter Kit with Two Options! 

 

 

The best time to purchase the Starter Kit is during Sale-A-Bration!! The Starter Kit is $99 and you’ll receive $125 in Stampin’ Up! product (shipping is always free when you purchase the Starter Kit)! The Starter Kit is truly for anyone! It’s for the person who wants to receive a 20% (to start) discount when they buy their Stampin’ Up! products. It’s also for the business minded person. There’s no risk in purchasing the Starter Kit, only perks and you get to choose what you want to add to your Starter Kit.  But wait, there’s more!

When I purchased the Starter Kit in 2009, I bought it just so I could get the discount. In 2009 you didn’t have the freedom to choose the products you wanted, it came with set products.  I love that Stampin’ Up! gives you the chance to now customize your kit so that you pick the products you love and know you will use. For more information about the Starter Kit, you can take a look here for some frequently asked questions.  You are also welcome to email me with any questions (click EMAIL ME on the sidebar).

Option 1: Choose the Stampin’ Glass Mat Studio (Retail Value $60). If you choose this option, Stampin’ Up! will send this to you, absolutely FREE!

Demonstrators were able to purchase the Glass Mat before Sale-a-Bration began and before I got it, I’d never used a glass mat.  Well, it’s awesome! It’s a product that I never knew I wanted! 

The heavy-duty glass mat comes printed with a ruler and grid lines for easy measuring, while the large surface space gives ample room for spreading out while paper crafting. The safety-tempered glass has a heat and scratch resistant surface that wipes clean with the included cloth and water—no chemicals needed. The reusable cloth also cleans ink off your stamps! The nonslip, heat resistant, waterproof silicone mat features four palette squares for mixing custom ink colors or for holding small ink spots in place while crafting. Each component can be used separately or you can use all three items together for a multipurpose paper crafting studio that’s both functional and elegant.

Option 2: Your choice of an additional $30 in FREE products to add to your Starter Kit!

Stampin’ Up! Paper Butterfly Accents

Happy Valentine’s Day! 

Today’s card was created using Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper, the So Sincere stamp set, Paper Butterfly Accents, Deckled Rectangles Dies and one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders

 

Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper

 

 

I started with Gorgeous Grape cardstock for the base of my card.  Then, I embossed a piece of Basic White cardstock using one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders and my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and then I adhered it to the front of the card.

 

 

 

Next I cut a piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock and Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper with the Deckled Rectangles Dies. I adhered the Fresh Freesia rectangle at an angle and then adhered the DSP rectangle.

I stamped my sentiment on Basic White cardstock using Gorgeous Grape ink and the stamp set, So Sincere. I cut it out using the Deckled Rectangles Dies. I didn’t use Stampin’ Dimensionals for this card (shock!!!) and adhered it to the Designer Series Paper. You can’t add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the butterfly, which is why I didn’t pop up the sentiment with Dimensionals. 

 

 

 

 

I used a Blending Brush to add color to my  butterfly (there are 40 butterflies in one package of Paper Butterfly Accents) with Fresh Freesia ink. Then, I added Multipurpose Glue to the back and placed it on my card. To finish my card, I added three Purple Fine Glimmer Gems and added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside.

Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Expressions Dies

If you need a quick but cute card, today’s card is one you’ll want to make. I needed to send a thank you card, quick, and made today’s card to send out.

I made it using the Charming Sentiments stamp set, Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper (DSP), and the Thoughtful Expressions Dies.

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock for the base of my card and scored it in two places (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). I cut two pieces of Perennial Lavender DSP and adhered them to the front panels of the card.

 

 

 

I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using the stamp set, Charming Sentiments. I cut it out using the Thoughtful Expressions Dies and then cut the next larger shape out of Pretty Peacock cardstock. I adhered the two pieces together and then on the back I added one row of Stampin’ Dimensionals at the top and adhered it to the top panel. 

 

 

 

To complete my card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside.

Stampin’ Up! Perennial Postage Stamp Set

Today’s card is one that was included in my Perennial Lavender Card Sampler several weeks ago.  It features the Perennial Postage stamp set, Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper (DSP), Thoughtful Expressions Dies, Fern 3D Embossing Folder and Iridescent Foil Gems

 

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock for the base of my card. Then, I embossed a piece of Basic White cardstock and embossed it using the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. Before adhering the embossed cardstock to the card base, I added a strip of Lost Lagoon cardstock to the center. I cut two pieces of Pretty Peacock cardstock and two pieces of Perennial Lavender DSP and adhered them together and then adhered them to the card front. 

I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink onto Basic White cardstock using the stamp set, Perennial Postage. I cut it out using the Thoughtful Expressions Dies, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 

To complete my card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside and added three Iridescent Foil Gems to the front.

Stampin’ Up! Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper

The card I’m sharing today was made with Stampin’ Up! Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper (DSP), Notes of Nature stamp set, Thoughtful Expressions Dies and Gold Stampin’ Embossing Powder

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Highland Heather cardstock for the base of my card. Then, I added a layer of Fresh Freesia cardstock and Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper. 

 

 

 

I heat embossed my sentiment using the Notes of Nature stamp set and then cut it out using the Thoughtful Expressions Dies. I cut a larger shape out of out Fresh Freesia cardstock and adhered the sentiment to the front. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

 

 

To complete my card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside of the card. 

 

 

 

How to Heat Emboss

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing the Embossing Buddy (an anti-static pouch that can be found in the Embossing Additions Tool Kit) over the surface of the paper as it 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 and then shake off any excess. Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool first so your paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch as your image becomes shiny and beautiful!

There’s no risk in purchasing the Starter Kit, only perks and you get to choose what you want to add to your Starter Kit.  But wait, there’s more! You have two options during Sale-a-Bration:  

Option 1: Choose the Stampin’ Glass Mat Studio (Retail Value $60). If you choose this option, Stampin’ Up! will send this to you, absolutely FREE! 

The heavy-duty glass mat comes printed with a ruler and grid lines for easy measuring, while the large surface space gives ample room for spreading out while paper crafting. The safety-tempered glass has a heat and scratch resistant surface that wipes clean with the included cloth and water—no chemicals needed. The reusable cloth also cleans ink off your stamps! The nonslip, heat resistant, waterproof silicone mat features four palette squares for mixing custom ink colors or for holding small ink spots in place while crafting. Each component can be used separately or you can use all three items together for a multipurpose paper crafting studio that’s both functional and elegant.

Option 2: Your choice of an additional $30 in FREE products to add to your Starter Kit!
