Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Fall Leaves Card

I created this Fall card with a variety of stamp sets that you wouldn’t expect to go together…the leaves are from the Sweet Strawberry Photopolymer Stamp Set, the sentiments from the Encircled in Friendship Cling Stamp Set and the Designer Series Paper is part of the Beauty of Friendship Collection, but they make a great card!  Don’t be afraid to mix and match!

The Paper Cuts

  • Early Expresso Cardstock:  8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, scored at 4 1/4” (card base)
  • Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper:  5 1/4” x 4” (front panel)
  • Basic White Cardstock:  3rd smallest Stitched Rectangle die cut,   2 1/2″ x 4″ (for stamping/punching) and 5 1/4” x 4” (inside panel)

The Creating

The leaves are Two-Step Stamping with a detail stamp (1st generation ink) and a fill stamp (2nd generation ink).  On Basic White Card, I stamped two Soft Suede leaves and one each of Pumpkin Pie, Bumblebee and Cajun Craze.  I punched these out with the coordinating Strawberry Builder Punch.

I stamped a Pumpkin Pie, Bumblebee and Soft Suede leaf on the inside panel and on the envelope.  I added the sentiment on the inside panel with Early Expresso Ink.  I stamped the sentiment on the Stitched Rectangle die cut with Early Expresso Ink and then ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine inside the Timber Embossing Folder.

The DSP and inside panels are adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.  The label and punched leaves are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the card! If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!

    Stampin’ Up! Encircled In Friendship Thank You Card for Challenges

    I used the Stampin’ Up! Encircled in Friendship Bundle from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog for this card. The bundle includes the Artistically Inked Stamp Set and Artistic Dies. There is also a Holiday stamp set in the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog (page 23) that coordinates with this bundle.

    The colors (Flirty Flamingo, Soft Succulent, and Gray Granite) were inspired by the Color Throwdown Countdown #655 Challenge.

    The design was inspired by #TGIFC329 Sketch Challenge.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Soft Succulent Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base) and 1 1/2″ x 1/2″ (sentiment)
    • Peaceful Place 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper (Gray Geometric): 4 3/8″ x 5 7/8″ (front panel) and 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4 (env flap)
    • Flirty Flamingo Cardstock: 3 3/4″ x 4 1/2″
    • Basic White Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside panel) and the 3rd smallest Encircled in Beauty die cut
    • Pattern Party 12″x12″ DSP (Pink Stripe): 3rd smallest smooth circle die cut from Layering Circles Dies and 4″ x 1/2″ (inside strip)

    The Creating

    With Gray Granite Ink I stamped the larger floral image from the Encircled in Friendship Stamp Set randomly on the Flirty Flamingo panel. I stamped the thanks on the Soft Succulent strip by masking the “with heartfelt thanks” image with a piece of PostIt cover up tape so that only the thanks was showing, inking and removing the tape before stamping. On a scrap of Basic White Cardstock I stamped the small floral image and colored it with Flirty Flamingo Light and Dark and Soft Succulent Light and Dark Stamping Blends before fussy cutting with my Paper Snips.

    On the Basic White inside panel I stamped the two sentiments and the floral image, coloring the flower as on the front. I added a strip of the Pattern Party DSP and adhered the panel to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The front layers are also adhered with liquid glue with the exception of the fussy cut floral image which is popped up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

    I added a White Baker’s Twine bow to the stem of the floral image with a Mini Glue Dot. With the putty tip of the Take Your Pick Tool and liquid glue, I added three gray Subtle Shimmer Sequins. I also adhered a piece of the Peaceful Place DSP to the envelope and trimmed the excess with my Paper Snips for a coordinating set.

    Thank you for stopping by. If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!

    • Thick Basic White Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base) and a stitched circle die cut from Warm Hugs Dies.
    • True Love 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper: 4 1/2″ x 5″ cut into 3 1 1/2″ strips on the long side and 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (envelope flap).

I adhered the stamped, stitched circle from Warm Hugs Dies to the Polished Pink die cut from the Encircled in Beauty Dies. I popped the layered piece on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

    I added three Polished Pink 2021-2023 In Color Jewels to embellish. So pretty! I adhered the remaining piece of True Love DSP to the flap of the envelope and trimmed the excess with my Paper Snips for a coordinating set.

    Stampin’ Up! Encircled in Friendship Thank You Card

    I used the Encircled in Friendship Bundle and the Expressions in Ink 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper to make this Thank You card. Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Pale Papaya Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″
    • Expressions in Ink 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (front panel), 1/2″ x 4″ (inside strip) and 2 1/4″ x 5 3/4″ (envelope flap)
    • In Color Shimmer Vellum: 4″ x 4″ (largest, outline die cut)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside) and the 3″ x 3 1/8″ (for die cut)
    For this card, the two dies used from Encircled in Beauty Dies are the 1st one (cut in Pale Papaya In Color Shimmer Vellum) and the first one on the second row (cut in Basic White Cardstock).

    The Creating

    I began by die cutting as indicated above with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I stamped the sentiment from the Encircled in Friendship Cling Stamp Set with Soft Succulent Ink. I also added the sentiment on the inside panel (it’s slightly off center to the left to accommodate the DSP strip).

    To assemble the card, I used Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive on the front and inside panels. For the vellum, I placed the sentiment die cut on top and flipped it over so that I had a guide to place the liquid adhesive. I wanted the edges to be free for a little lift and texture. Then, I popped up the sentiment stamped die cut up with Stampin’ Dimensionals which hid any adhesive that may have shown through the vellum. The DSP panel was adhered to the envelope flap and trimmed with Paper Snips for a coordinated set.

    To embellish, I added Pale Papaya 2021-23 In Color Jewels with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool.

    If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!

    Stampin’ Up! Encircled in Friendship Card

    I received the Encircled in Friendship bundle from my sweet upline, Amy, yesterday and I couldn’t wait to use it! The Encircled in Friendship Cling Stamp Set has beautiful sentiments, floral images, and a little bit of coloring. The Encircled in Beauty Dies are incredible! I had to cut one of each right away. In addition to cards, they will be great frames for scrapbooking. Thank you, Amy! BTW, the True Love 12×12 DSP will be going away at the end of the month. Grab it while you can and enjoy the card!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Flirty Flamingo Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (cardbase).
    • Basic White Cardstock: largest lace edge die from Encircled in Beauty Dies, 5 5/16″ x 3 15/16″ (front panel) and 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside panel).
    • True Love Designer Series Paper: largest Stitched Rectangle Die (front panel); left over strip from the edge (inside).
    These are the incredible dies! I have more playing to do! I need to cut some in colors…maybe that pretty Shimmer Vellum?

    The Creating

    I began by stamping the small floral image around the die cut with Tuxedo Black Ink (no measuring involved, just winged it…not perfect, but it’s all good!). I added the sentiments in the middle and on the inside panel. I colored the flowers with Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends and the Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I repeated on the inside panel and the bottom edge of the envelope.

    To assemble the card, I used Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive on the front and inside panels and the die cut left over edge on the inside. I popped up the decorated Encircled Beauty die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

    To embellish, I added Matte Black Dots between the floral images with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool.

    If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!
