Blossoms In Bloom

At the recent Luv 2 Stampin GA group meeting, we held a card swap to share card ideas with one another.  For my creation, the goal became combining new product with retiring products. For the new product, I choose the new Blossoms in Bloom Bundle. The Blossoms In Bloom Stamp Set and coordinating Many Layered Blossoms Dies offer versatility for creating beautiful floral themed cards.  Mark your calendar, you can order this set on June 3, 2020.  For the card below, I stamped the blossoms stamp and die cut an overlay from the retiring Woven Threads Designer Series Paper.  I love the look the designer series paper gives to the flowers.  Details for you to recreate the card are below.

Blossoms In Bloom Card Details:
  • Create card base by cutting a piece of Rococo Rose cardstock 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, then score at 4-1/4″ and fold.
  • With the Many Layered Blossoms Dies, cut the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper (6″ x 6″ piece) to create overlay. Check out the discounted price under Project Materials below!
  • Cut Whisper White cardstock layer – 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use the cut blossoms layer as your guide to determine where to stamp the flower centers.  
  • Using the large blossoms stamp from the Blossoms In Bloom Set, stamp onto the Whisper White cardstock with Seaside Spray Classic Stampin’ Pad.  Attach to the Rococo Rose card base using adhesive.
  • Add the blossoms overlay to the stamped blooms using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  
  • On a scrap piece of Whisper White (approximately 1/2″ x 2-1/2″), stamp the sentiment using Rococo Rose Classic Stampin’ Pad.  This sentiment comes from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set.  After stamping, cut a “v shape” to create a pennant end.  Add to the card using Mini Glue Dots.
  • Finish the card by tying a knotted bow using the Rococo Rose Scalloped Ribbon and attach beside the sentiment with glue dots.

The Blossoms In Bloom Bundle will offer you lots of creative options.  Be sure to order it on June 3 and have fun using Designer Series Papers to create different layering pieces.

Forever Greenery “Sneak Peek”

My product preorder recently arrived and I’m loving the new products.  So I thought I would give you a sneak peak at one of my favorites, the Forever Greenery Suite.  Today’s card uses several products from the Forever Greenery Suite – the Forever Fern Bundle and the gorgeous Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  The catalog photos of the designer series paper are nice but just wait until you actually see the paper.  The colors are deep and vibrant so you’ll be able to create a variety of beautiful “wow” projects.  The card below is a simple card that highlights a couple prints from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  

Forever Greenery

Card Details:
  • For base: use a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock, then score at 5-1/2″ and fold to create the base.
  • Select coordinating prints from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Cut the first layer of DSP to 5″ x 3-3/4″ and attach to the card base front.  Cut the second layer of DSP to 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″.  Adhere to the first layer of DSP on the card front.
  • Using the Forever Fern Stamp Set, stamp the berry stem onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using Pretty Peacock Classic Ink Pad.  Stamp the two sets of medium leaves using Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink Pad onto Whisper White cardstock.  Cut the shapes using the coordinating Forever Flourishing Dies. 
  • On a 2″ square of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment using the Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink Pad.  With the Stitched Shapes Dies, cut the stitched circle so that the sentiment is toward the right side of the circle (refer to card photo).
  • Add the leaves to the back of the sentiment circle using mini glue dots.  Then attach the berries by offsetting by the sentiment.  
  • Complete the card by adding the sentiment layer to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Per Stampin’ Up! regulations, demonstrators are not able to post photos from the upcoming Annual Catalog until June 3.  But once the catalog is released, I’ll be able to share videos with you that showcase the various bundles and other products.  You’ll find the list of products for this project under the Project Materials section below.  NOTE: the Forever Greenery products are not available for purchase until June 3, 2020.  Just be sure to add the Forever Greenery Suite to your wish list!

Female Golfer Birthday

Do you have friends that enjoy golf?  I do! And as a golfer myself, I hear from friends how difficult it is to find golf themed birthday cards especially for females. Today’s project is a female golfer birthday card that was made for a friend’s recent birthday. In the current Mini Catalog from Stampin’ Up!, the Country Club Suite offers a selection of products perfect for creating golf themed cards and projects for both the male and female golfer.   Father’s Day will soon be here and I’ll be using the set for a special golf themed card for my husband.  The card below features the Country Club Designer Series Paper and the Absolutely Argyle 3D Embossing Folder.  Act quickly though, the Country Club Suite is retiring and the last day to order products from the suite is June 2 or while supplies last.  

Card Details:
  • Crushed Curry Cardstock 4-1/4″ x 11″; score at 5-1/2″ to create card base.  Place card front into the Absolutely Argyle 3D Embossing Folder (will be available in the new Annual Catalog) and texture emboss.
  • Country Club Designer Series Paper: background layer 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″.  NOTE: do not attach to card base yet.
  • Country Club Designer Series Paper: select golfer image from paper and cut with a Layering Circles Die.  
  • Color the golfer image.  For the female golfer on the card, the following Stampin’ Blends Markers are used: Ivory (skin), Light Balmy Blue (skirt), Light & Dark Old Olive (trees) Color Lifter (trees), Soft Suede (tree trunks)
  • To emphasize the image, Seaside Spray Classic Ink is lightly sponged behind the golfer and trees.
  • Sponge a small amount of Garden Green Classic Ink along line of the tree bases to mimic grass.
  • Add the golfer circle to the Country Club Designer Series Paper layer so that the right edge overhangs the designer series paper.  Turn over and cut the overhanging piece.  Refer to card photo noting the right side of circle is cut.  Now attach to the card base using a strong adhesive.
  • Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Clubhouse Stamp Set using the Crushed Curry Classic Stampin’ Ink Pad onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut with coordinating die from the Golf Club Dies.  TIP: order the Clubhouse Bundle which includes the stamp set and the dies – you’ll save 10%.
  • Next, attach the sentiment to a strip of Garden Green cardstock with Snail adhesive. 
  • Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, add the sentiment to the card and embellish with small Basic Rhinestone Jewels.

The Country Club Suite will definitely get lots of use in my craft room!

Just a reminder:

Be sure to check the Last-Chance Products list to order products in the Country Club Suite and then you’ll be ready for making a variety of golf themed projects.  The final day to order the last-chance products is June 2 or while supplies last.
