Blossom Bunch Punch & Watercolor Wishes

Lately while creating in my craft room I’ve been trying to make several variations of the same card so that I’ll have a nice stash of cards to use!  That means I have more than one card to share today!  My cards were inspired by Jeanie Stark, a fellow Stampin’ Up! demo. 

All of my cards use the same design but I changed them up with different paper and colors.  All of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) comes from the Festive Birthday DSP and I have to say that I really love all of the bright, cheerful designs.  

I always refer to the back of the package of paper or the catalog to see which colors coordinate and so, I used Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Crushed Curry and Whisper White.  I stamped my sentiments in these same colors and cut them out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits which sit on top of one of the Layering Ovals Framelits.

The sentiments I used are included in the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit (a kit which includes a photopolymer stamp set and all of the supplies needed to make 20 different cards – you just need to supply adhesive).

The flower on each card was created with the Blossom Bunch Punch and I added an Enamel Shape to the center of each one.  

If you’d like to create your own, the measurements are included below as well as all of the supplies I used for all of the cards.

Stationary Kit Part 3

Covered Stamp Case

Thanks for stopping by!

Today I’ll share the last of the goodies inside my stationary boxes.  The boxes wouldn’t have been complete without something to write in and with!  The coordinating notepads are 3″ x 5″ and I purchased them on Amazon. Just as I did with the gum holders, I used the same paper that coordinated with the paper that was used to slip inside the sleeve of the full size stamp case.

I used the stamp set that comes with the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit (the stamp set cannot be purchased separately).  I used Pentel RSVP pens and unscrewed the black part which can be seen at the bottom of the picture, rolled up the paper and inserted it inside the barrel.  In a previous post I did a short video on how to do this, so click here if you’d like to see it.

Inky Fingers

This week I played in my craft room and it was so nice to get ink all over my fingers.  It felt good to create!!!   I pulled out the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies and stamp pads and got to work.

Rose Garden Blended background

I had an idea as to what I wanted to create but neither of these cards are what I intended.  I wanted to have blended color in the middle of the card and then place my Whisper White Rose die cut on top.

I started blending Rose Red and Garden Green onto Whisper White cardstock but wasn’t happy with the results so I decided to cut out the Rose Garden Thinlit using my blended background.   The card I created with the cut out is below.

Then I tried to accomplish what I had in my mind but again wasn’t happy with the results so I tried blending the colors out to the edge of the paper instead and that result is my first card.

To adhere the Thinlits, I used two different products.  One of them is glued down with Tombow Liquid Multipurpose Glue and the other (a non Stampin’ Up! product) is a spray adhesive from Elmer’s.  Both worked equally well.

I’ve included my supplies below but here are a few extra details:

  •  The sentiment on the first card is from the Card Kit called Watercolor Wishes.  This is a card kit with the stamp set included.


  •  The sentiment on the second card is from a FREE Sale-a-bration set called What I Love.  Place a $50 order (before tax and shipping) and you can choose this stamp set, FREE!  If you are reading this on my blog, the Sale-a-bration catalog can be found  on the right hand side.  Click on the cover of the catalog to see what other choices there are.


  • Three of the items in the Sale-a-bration catalog are only available until February 15th at which time they will go away and there will be three new items.   The three sets that will no longer be available after the 15th are below.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
