Coloring the Calming Camellia Stamp Set

Today I am using the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils for coloring the gorgeous large camellia in the Calming Camellia Stamp Set. With this exclusive stamp set, you can use just one ink color and create a simple but beautiful card. However, it’s easy to add multiple colors using the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils.  Even though I am using the watercolor pencils, no water is necessary.  Be sure to watch to the video below showing how simple and quick it is to color the stamped image. Warning though – once you start coloring, you’ll not want to stop!

Plentiful Plants Fun Fold Card

Are you a plant lover?  I am but unfortunately I do not have a “green thumb”.  Thankful my husband keeps our houseplants alive!  But Stampin’ Up! offers me the chance to create plants that don’t need watering or the right amount of light to survive (LOL).  This week, I have a fun fold card featuring the Plentiful Plants Bundle.  It also features the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper which coordinates with the stamp bundle. What’s great is the Perfect Plants Dies from the bundle will cut some of the images found in the designer series paper.  This is especially helpful when you need to create a card quickly.  As you’ll notice on the stamped envelope below, the plant and pot have shading.  Thanks to the Plentiful Plants Stamp Set containing Distinktive stamps which create beautiful shaded images.

The materials, measurements and assembly details are located below the card photo.

Materials for the Plentiful Plants Fun Fold Card:
  • Plentiful Plants Bundle (#155688)
  • Card base: Gray Granite Cardstock – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″; score at 2-1/8″ and 4-1/4″
  • Evening Evergreen Cardstock – 5″ x 3-3/4″ & 4-1/4″ x 2-3/4″
  • Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper (2 coordinating pieces) – 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ & 4″ x 2-1/2″; cut 3 plants and 3 pots from a sheet of the designer series paper using the coordinating dies (alternately, stamp and die cut desired plants/pots)
  • Basic White Cardstock for interior: 5″ x 3-3/4″
  • Evening Evergreen Classic Stampin’ Pad

Christmas in July 2021-Snowman Season Gift Tags

Keeping with this week’s gift tag theme for Christmas in July, I am featuring Snowman Gift Tags.  A recent purchase of snowman notepads became the inspiration for the snowman gift tags.  Since I’ll be “giving a little something” to folks throughout the holiday season, it’s only appropriate to make the presentation special. Right?!  Even better, the notepads fit perfectly into the Ombre Gift Bags. And with coordinating snowman gift tags, the “little something” is ready to present later this year.  The Snowman Season Stamp Set and the Tailor Made Tags Dies in the 2021-2022 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog are perfect for making the gift tags.  Best of all, the tags are quick and easy to make!

Snowman Gift Card Project Materials:
  • Snowman Season Photopolymer Stamp Set

Sweet As A Peach Bundle

Wow! I can’t believe a month has passed and I haven’t updated this blog.  Obviously, I’ve been busy but I didn’t realize so much time has passed.  The great thing is I have lots of projects to share with you over the next few weeks.  So many, that I’ll be adding some additional posts for the next few weeks.  One group of projects will feature the Sweet As A Peach Bundle.  When I first saw the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, I was immediately drawn to the Sweet As A Peach bundle and the coordinating You’re a Peach Designer Series Paper.  So today, I am sharing a project from the May card class featuring the bundle.

Sweet As A Peach
Card Details:
  • Create a card base using Basic White Thick cardstock (4-1/4″ x 11″, score at 5-1/2″ and fold).
  • Cut the following from the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper (DSP): 5-1/2″ x 4″ and a coordinating piece 4-1/4″ x 2-1/2″.  
  • Attach the larger piece of the DSP of the front of the card base using your favorite adhesive.
  • Next, cut a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock (2-7/8″ x 4-1/4″).  Center and mount the coordinating DSP to the Calypso Coral cardstock.  Wrap a strip of the Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon around the piece (refer to card photo – note: we’ll tie bow and add it after attaching the sentiment). Use a strong adhesive to add the layered piece to the card front.
  • On a 2-1/4″ square of Basic White cardstock, stamp the sentiment using Calypso Coral Classic Ink Pad.  Note: I found it easiest to stamp the largest part of the sentiment first and then to add the “you’re as” smaller stamp sentiment last.  After stamping, cut the label shape using the Tasteful Labels Dies (or your favorite die shape).
  • Stamp the small leaves using Pear Pizzazz on each side of the sentiment leaving room for adding the Loose Flower Flourishes embellishments. Add the embellishments using glue dots.
  • Add to the sentiment to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Complete the card by tying a bow using the Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon and attaching the bow using glue dots.

Look for a variety of other projects featuring this bundle!

Fine Art Floral Birthday Card

Since March is full of birthdays for many family members, it has kept me busy creating birthday cards.  One of my sister’s is the lucky recipient of the Fine Art Floral birthday card. If you’ve not seen the products in the Fine Arts Floral Collection, you must check it out.  The Fine Arts Floral Designer Series Paper is gorgeous!  There are a variety of patterns to select from but I especially was drawn to the pattern on the card below.  It’s beautiful on it’s own but I knew on a Navy cardstock base highlighted with the Gilded Leafing, it would be even more gorgeous.  This was my first use of the Gilded Leafing and I love how it creates an elegant card, especially when combined with the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper.  

Fine Art Floral Birthday Card

Fine Art Floral Birthday Card:
  • Card base: Night of Navy cardstock 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″. 
  • Very Vanilla cardstock: 5-1/4″ x 4″ plus a scrap piece for the sentiment pieces.
  • Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper: 3 strips at 1-1/4″ x 3-1/2″
Assembly Details:
  • For the first step, apply Gilded Leafing along the edge of the Very Vanilla (5-1/4″ x 4″).  To ensure there is enough gilding, make sure it creates at least a 1/4″ border around all side edges of the card. TIP: Use Tear & Tape since it’s the width needed.
  • After gilding along the outer edges of the Very Vanilla cardstock, add the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper panels spacing evenly.  
  • Next, add the Gilded Leafing to cover the Very Vanilla cardstock between the panels. Again, use Tear & Tape and then apply the gilded leafing.  To attach layer to the Night of Navy card base, use Stampin’ Seal+.
  • For the sentiment, stamp using Night of Navy Classic Stampin’ Pad onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Use Layering Circles Die to cut circle to fit within the Gold Hoop Embellishment.  Attach to the gold hoop and add to the card front using Stampin’ Seal+. Embellish around the sentiment with Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.
  • For the flower embellishment, use the small flower stamps from the Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set.  Stamp the flower body using Petal Pink and the inner petals with Merry Merlot. Cut using the coordinating Floral Gallery Dies.  Stamp the leaves using Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Pad onto a scrap of Old Olive cardstock.  Trim as needed to fit behind flower when attaching to the sentiment piece.  Attach flower and leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • With Dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends, color a piece of Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon.  Then, tie into a bow (if desired, add strips of Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim and Petal Pink Ribbon when forming tail of bow).  Add the bow to the base of the flower on the card using glue dots.

Be sure to check out the products in the Fine Art Floral Suite Collection and order your favorite items.  But definitely, add the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper and the Gilded Leafing to a “must have” order list.
