Stampin’ Up! Fine Art Floral Suite Notecard

This card was created with products from the Fine Art Floral Suite. It’s my favorite suite of products from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalog. While I’ve used it a lot, I hadn’t braved the Gilded Leafing Embellishment. I’ve been missing out! It’s fun and very pretty. Enjoy!


The Paper Cuts 

  • Crumb Cake Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ (card base) and 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ (embossed panel)
  • Flirty Flamingo Cardstock: 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ (front panel) and 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ (floral image)
  • Pear Pizzazz Cardstock: 1″ x 1 1/2″ (leaf image)

The Creating

  • I stamped the full floral image from the Art Gallery Stamp Set on Flirty Flamingo Cardstock with Flirty Flamingo Ink. With VersaMark Ink I stamped the 2nd step floral image on top and sprinkled on the Heat & Stick Powder. I heated it with the Heat Tool until it was clear and then pressed the flower into my container of Gilded Leafing Embellishment. I used a stiff paintbrush to remove the excess leafing. Isn’t it pretty?
  • I inked one of the leaves on the stemmed leaf stamp in Pear Pizzazz Ink and stamped it onto a scrap of Pear Pizzazz Cardstock.
  • I ran the stamped leaf and flower through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the coordinating dies from Floral Gallery Dies. I snipped the leaf from the stem with Paper Snips.
  • I ran the small Crumb Cake square through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine inside the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered it to the Flirty Flamingo Cardstock square and knotted a piece of the Fine Art Ribbon around and trimmed the ends. I adhered the panel to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • I stamped the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the card front below the embossed panel.
  • The floral image is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The leaf is tucked in underneath with liquid glue.
  • I added a floral image to the inside of the notecard and on the envelope. It is stamped with Flirty Flamingo Ink with the full image in 2nd generation and the top (2nd step) image in 1st generation ink.

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Spring Card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop for March! Today we are sharing “Celebrate Spring” projects. You will find links at the bottom of my post to hop you along the way to the projects. Be sure to check out all of our talented team members projects to see how they interpreted the theme and what they have made for you!

I used the Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set from the 2021 January to June Mini Catalog (with a few other select stamps and dies) to make a Thinking of You Card with bright Spring colors and flowers that would brighten anyone’s day! There are links to the products used at the end of the blog. I hope you enjoy the card!

The Paper Cuts

  • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ (card base), largest Stitched Rectangle Dies die cut, and the middle Stitched Shapes Dies circle die cut.
  • Garden Green Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″

The Creating

  • I began by tracing the outline of the Stitched Shapes Dies medium circle onto the center of the Stitched Rectangles Dies die cut lightly with a pencil. This provided me with a stamping guide to know what would and what wouldn’t show from beneath the actual mounted die cut.
  • I then used Magenta Madness Ink to ink the top three flowers on the largest floral stamp in the Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped it once at the top and once at the bottom of the circle.
  • Using Gorgeous Grape Ink, I stamped the double floral image from the Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set once on the left and once on the right of the circle.
  • With Bumblebee Ink, I added four of the small floral image from the Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set in between the purple and pink images.
  • I then stamped the tiny flower from Blossoms in Bloom Photopolymer Stamp Set (2020-22 Annual Catalog) with Seaside Spray Ink.
  • Finally I added the double leaf image from Beautiful Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set (2020-22 Annual Catalog) in Garden Green Ink.
  • With Garden Green Ink, I stamped the “Thinking of You” sentiment from the Blossoms in Bloom Photopolymer Stamp Set centered inside the Stitched Shapes Dies circle die cut. I also stamped the greeting from the Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set on the inside of the card base.
  • I repeated the flowers on the inside of the card and on the envelope flap. Don’t you love a matching set?
  • To assemble the card front I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped Stitched Rectangle to the Garden Green panel and then both to the card base. I erased the pencil marks and then popped the Stitched Shapes die cut on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • To embellish, I added three Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.

Stampin’ Up! Jan to Jun Mini Catalog Sneak Peek – Art Gallery Bundle

As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator (discount shopper or business) you get to order from the upcoming catalog a month in advance. It’s so exciting to see the new things and be able to try them out early. Another perk of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is being part of a team to network, share ideas and encourage each other in something you all love to do. My team gets together monthly and today was the day! Several team members presented card tutorials and presentations (all were wonderful!) for which we could follow along. I loved this card that Amy Koenders presented, however, I did not have the stamp set. I thought maybe you would like to see the results and thoughts that went behind choosing alternatives for the design. (I”m a little embarrassed to place my card next to Amy’s beautiful one, but here goes).

Both of these cards are made with new sets in the upcoming January – June 2021 Mini Catalog. I decided to stick with the same color scheme Amy used with the red/pink and greens. The new Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper fit the bill with Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive. Amy’s colors are Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Balmy Blue.

For the design I exchanged medium flowers for the strawberry focal images (Sweet Strawberry Bundle) and coordinating the smaller matching floral accents. I changed up the greeting to use one included in the same Art Gallery stamp set with a coordinating die from the Floral Gallery Dies. The greenery in the background is a larger stamp with 3 flowers on top, but I only inked the “berries” and stamped it 3 times. Two of the flowers and the sentiment are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals accented with Poppy Parade All The Trimmings Embellishments (on sale 50% off – $4 on Dec 8th while supplies last). The Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper on Amy’s card is FREE with a $100 order during Sale-A-Bration, January 5th – February 28, 2021.

The Paper Cuts

  • Poppy Parade Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ for the card base.
  • Old Olive Cardstock: 3 1/8″ x 4 1/2″ panel
  • Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ (Amy’s is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ – no border) and a 1/2″ x 4″ strip for the inside.
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die, the longer label from Floral Gallery Dies and a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel for the inside.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing two different cards from the same design and also enjoyed seeing sneak peeks o products in the upcoming January – June 2021 Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration. Get your list ready for the Giant Year-End Closeout beginning Tuesday, December 8th.

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Labels Dies Floral Congratulations Card

This card features the Celebration Labels Dies and the Beautiful Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set. I saw Dena Rekow at The Creativity Cave use this set with the Celebration Labels Dies and thought it went well together. Here’s my version. It is a Congratulations card for a young stamping couple I know who is getting married soon. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Thick Whisper White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: second largest Celebration Labels Die
  • Seaside Spay Cardstock: two 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Pear Pizzazz Cardstock: scraps for 2 Celebration Labels sprig dies and the sentiment banner.

The Creating

  • Use Seaside Spray ink to stamp the large floral image from Beautiful Friendship on the Celebration Labels die and the envelope flap.
  • Mask the floral image and use Pear Pizzazz ink to stamp the 3 leaf image in 1st Generation and the double leave image in 2nd Generation.
  • Use Crushed Curry ink to stamp the frond image in 2nd Generation.
  • Use Basic Gray ink to stamp the sentiments on the Pear Pizzazz scrap and one of the Seaside Spray panels. Stamp the small flower image and the double leaf image in 2nd Generation over the inside sentiment and adhere to the inside of the card.
  • Flag the ends of the sentiment strip with the Banner Triple Punch.
  • Emboss the remaining Seaside Spray panel with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere the stamped Celebration Label die to the center with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop these layers up on the card front.
  • Cut the two sprig dies from Pear Pizzazz cardstock and adhere them to the stamped image. Use dimensionals to pop on the sentiment banner.
  • Tap the Wink of Stella against a bone folder over the card for a sprinkle of sparkle.

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Card

I used the Timeless Tropical Bundle to make this bright card. I love how the colors pop off the black background and I hope you do, too.

The card base is Basic Black Cardstock cut at 4 1/4” x 11” and scored at 5 1/2”. The inside is a 4” x 5 1/4” piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I used scrap pieces of Whisper White for the hibiscus pieces and the label.

I used Momento Tuxedo Black to stamp: the Hibiscus and three (3) leaves from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set, the Thinking of You from the Little Ladybug Stamp Set and the Hibiscus randomly on the Basic Black card front.

I used Stampin’ Blends to color the Hibiscus and three (3) leaves: Dark Daffodil Delight, Real Read Light & Dark, Lovely Lipstick Light & Dark, Old Olive Light & Dark. I then used the In The Tropics Dies to cut out the Hibiscus pieces. The label is from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

The hibiscus on the inside and the envelope is stamped in Lovely Lipstick. First Generation on the inside and Second Generation on the Envelope.

I added a little wink of Stella to the inside of the Hibiscus. It and one of the leaves are popped on Stampin’ Dimensionals. The rest is glued with Liquid Adhesive.

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poppies Suite Cards

It’s no wonder Peaceful Poppies Suite is most popular in the January – June 2020 Mini Catalog. It is gorgeous and oh so easy to create with. Tonight I made two cards featuring just the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper and sentiments from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. You will also notice that I adjusted the sentiments to fit the spaces where I wanted them. More on that below. Enjoy!

Card 1 Cutting

  • Old Olive Card Base: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″
  • Whisper White Card Front: 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Real Red Cardstock: 2 3/8″ x 5 1/2″
  • Peaceful Poppies DSP: 2 1/8″ x 5 1/4″

The Technique

I wanted the Thank You sentiment to fit in the blank area to the right of the DSP so I used a Masking technique to split it to two lines. Once I placed the stamp on the block, I used the sticky part of a Post It Note (or Washi Tape) to cover “You”. I inked the stamp in Tuxedo Black Ink, removed the Post It Note and stamped just the “Thank’ on the card front. Repeat for the second line. I will warn you, the hardest part is to remember to remove the Post It (with the ink on it) from the Stamp before you go to your paper. I don’t know why that is, but it is.

Card 1 Inside

  • Peaceful Poppies DSP Strip: 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 3 7/16″ x 5 1/4
  • Same technique for the sentiment.

Card 2 Cutting

  • Whisper White Cardbase: 4 1/4″ x 11 scored at 5 1/2″
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Peaceful Poppies DSP: 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
  • Whisper White Tag die cut from the Painted Labels Dies

Card 2 Inside

  • Old Olive Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Peaceful Poppies DSP Stip: 1/8″ x 5 1/8″

Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Watercolor Card

I made this Birthday Card with the Painted Poppies Bundle and sentiments from Peaceful Moments. It is a white embossed watercolor. Watercoloring is so easy and so rewarding.

  • I began with a 4 7/8″ x 3 9/16″ piece of Watercolor Paper. I also used the larger scrap piece that was leftover.
  • I stamped the poppies and leaves from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink, sprinkled with White Embossing Powder and set with the Heat Tool.
  • I used the medium tip Aqua Painter and the following Ink Pads to watercolor the images: Crushed Curry, Lovely Lipstick, Old Olive, and Blackberry Bliss. It’s a good idea to have a paper towel on hand.
I had Flirty Flamingo out, but found there was enough variation with just the Lovely Lipstick.
  • I loaded the Aqua Painter with water diluted Lovely Lipstick and tapped it over the focal image for the Watercolor splatter background.
  • I added the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in the top right corner with Blackberry Bliss Ink.
  • I used the Painted Labels Dies to cut out the images on the scrap paper. I popped then up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • On a 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock I stamped the poppies in Lovely Lipstick and the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss for the inside of the card.
  • I also added the poppies to a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope for a matching set.
  • I layered on a 5″ x 3 3/4″ piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock, a 5 9/16″ x 4 1/16″ piece of Lovely Lipstick (I cut the center out with a Rectangle Die to use for a future project) and mounted on a 4 1/4″ x 11″ Blackberry Bliss Cardstock scored at 5 1/2″.
  • Note: I adhered the Watercolor Paper with Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive and the other Cardstock Layers with Snail.

Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions Floral Card

I received a new stamp set and I just had to play with it. (My apologies it’s not Christmas, although there is an item from the Holiday Catalog in the making). My Stampin’ Up! up-line, Amy Koenders, does a drawing from the card posts on our team Facebook page. The prize is a stamp set of our choice. I was one of the lucky ones. Guess who’s getting this card. 🙂

THE CUTTING

  • Crushed Curry Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ for the card and 5″ x 3 3/4″ for the front layer.
  • Whisper White Cardstock: Two 5 1/4″ x 4″ for the inside and the front layer; 3 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ for the stamping; and 1″ x 3″ for the message.
  • Garden Green DSP: 3 1/2″ x 2″ and a 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ strip for the inside.
  • Garden Green 3/8″ Double Stitched Ribbon: 14″

Tip: I cut the extra paper from the center of the larger front layers to use on other projects. You can use a paper trimmer, die thinlet, or a punch. I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelit Dies in this instance. It also helps reduce the weight of the card for mailing.

THE CREATING

  • Stamp Thank You in Garden Green on the 1″ x 3″ strip. Run it through the Big Shot with the 2nd smallest thinlet in the skinnier set of rectangles in the Rectangle Stitched Dies.
  • Stamp the larger leaves stamp in garden green across the bottom of the 3 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ in second generation (stamp off on scrap paper then onto the card without reinking). Stamp the smaller leaves stamp in first generation with Garden Green.
  • Stamp the flower stamp in Crushed Curry in second generation. Add the complimentary stamp in first generation.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the inside layer.
  • I adhered the layers with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive and popped the message with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Glue Dot behind the knot of the ribbon to prevent it from sliding during mailing.

Lovely Floral Card

I have a friend in Amsterdam who has a beautiful garden. She has just had serious surgery. Three years ago, when I had surgery, she sent me a card with dutch tulips on it. We mainly communicate through the chat on a game we play (my husband calls us “Modern Day Pen Pals”), but it is such a treat to get real mail from a far away place. Here is what I made to mail to her.

The Cutting

  • Whisper White Cardstock – two 5 1/4″ x 4″, and 2 1/2″ x 1 3/4″
  • Garden Green Cardstock – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ and 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
  • I ran the small piece of Whisper White through my die cut machine with the Stitched Oval (2 1/4″ x 1 1/4″).

The Stamping

  • I used the Beautiful Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp the roses in Flirty Flamingo on one of the 5 1/4″ x 4″ Whisper Whites. I added the flower centers in Gray Granite. I added the leaves in Garden Green.
  • I stamped the roses and leaves on the lower right corner of the inside Whisper White panel and glued it with Tombow Liquid Adhesive.
  • I stamped the roses and leaves on the lower left corner of the envelope. So fun to have matching sets.
  • I stamped the You Are Loved sentiment from the Forever Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink on the Whisper White Oval. I adhered this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals (using a double one where the “d” overhung the lower frame).

The Finish

  • I used my paper trimmer to cut out the center with a 3/4″ border to make a frame. You could use rectangle dies if you prefer.
  • I glued the floral frame to the card front with Tombow Liquid Adhesive.
  • I glued the floral insert to the rectangle of Garden Green Cardstock. I adhered this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimenstionals to give it a pop.
  • I added three Pearl Basic Jewels (the rule of 3s in art).

I hope you enjoyed this lovely card and I hope it will brighten my friend, Matty’s, day.
