Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Monochromatic Card

I used the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle (Pretty Pumpkins Photopolymer Stamp Set + Detailed Pumpkins Dies) from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and the Expressions in Ink 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog to make this monochromatic hello card. I hope you enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″ (card base) and the pumpkin die cut from Detailed Pumpkins Dies
  • Pale Papaya Cardstock: the pumpkin die cut from Detailed Pumpkins Dies
  • Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper: 5-1/4″ x 4″ (front panel), 5-1/4″ x 1/2″ (inside) and 5-3/4″ x 2-1/4″ (envelope)
  • Basic White Cardstock: scallop rectangle die cut from Stitched So Sweetly Dies and 5-1/4″ x 4″ (inside)

The Creating

I began by stamping the sentiments from the Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie Ink on the scallop rectangle die cut and the inside panel.

I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the two pumpkin die cuts to the rectangle die cut, tucking the folded Pale Papaya Ribbon under with a Mini Glue Dot. I added three Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

To assemble, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the DSP panels, Basic White panel, DSP strip and DSP for the envelope. I popped up the pumpkin die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals and trimmed the extra DSP from the envelope flap with Paper Snips.

    Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Fun Fold Birthday Card

    This is such a fun, cute and easy fun fold. I have seen several, but it was Demonstrator Tammy Beard, who’s card inspired the making. It features the Pansy Patch Bundle along with the coordinating Pansy Petals 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper which is going on sale July 1st at 15% off! There is more about the upcoming Designer Series Paper Sale below. In the meantime enjoy the card! I hope you give it a try.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Fresh Freesia Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card front/inside card – opens left), 3″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ (card base w/panel – opens right) and two Pansy Dies single petals die cuts.
    • Evening Evergreen Cardstock: 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ (front/inside layer) and 2 Pansy Dies large leaf die cuts.
    • Pansy Patch 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper: two 4″ x 2 3/4″, 1/2″ x 3 3/4″, and 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ all in different patterns. I chose one of the patterns for the envelope flap: 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″.
    • Blackberry Bliss Cardstock: a large petal trim die cut, two small petal trim die cuts, and a pansy “beard” die cut from Pansy Dies.
    • Bumblebee Cardstock: a pansy center die cut from Pansy Dies (it cuts 3 but you will only use one on this card).
    • Basic White Cardstock: a large petal die cut from Pansy Dies, the 2nd smallest Stitched So Sweetly Dies scallop label and two 4″ x 2 3/4″ panels (for stamping/writing).

    The Creating

    I began by adhering the pansy pieces together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue…just little dots along the edges of the petal trim pieces and at the base of the leaves, smaller petals, “beard” and center. I applies Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back so it would be ready to go.

    Next I stamped the sentiments from Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set on the Stitched So Sweetly die cut and horizontally centered on one of the Basic White panels with Evening Evergreen Ink. On the remains panel, vertically, I added the small pansy in the lower right corner with Fresh Freesia, Blackberry Bliss, Bumblebee and Evening Evergreen Inks.

    To assemble the card, I used Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to adhere the Evening Evergreen panel centered on the larger (left) side of the Fresh Freesia card base w/panel. Then I added the Fresh Freesia card front/inside centered on it. I also added the stamped Basic White panels and the card base and card front DSP panels. I added the larger DSP strip to the bottom edge (after slanting the ends with my Paper Snips), added the sentiment label and topped it with the remaining smaller DSP strip.

    Now to add the gorgeous die cut pansy! One tip…don’t place it too close to the edge of the fold or the card front won’t open fully. Then to embellish, I added 3 Evening Evergreen 2021-23 In Color Jewels with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool. The card fits into a standard Basic White Medium Envelope which I adhered a piece of coordinating DSP to and trimmed away the excess with Paper Snips.

    I hope you enjoy 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! Pansy Patch Thank You Card

    I used the Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set and the coordinating Pansy Petals 12×12 Designer Series Paper from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog to create this thank you card. It also features 2021-23 In Colors in the cardstock and embellishments. Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Soft Succulent Cardstock: 4 1/4′′ x 11′′ scored at 5 1/2′′ (card base) and 2 1/4″ square (sentiment).
    • Evening Evergreen Cardstock: 4 – 1 3/4″ squares and the 4th largest scallop die cut from Layering Circles Dies.
    • Pansy Petals 12×12 Designer Series Paper: 2 – 1 1/2″ squares from one pattern, 2 – 1 1/2″ squares from a second pattern, 4″ x 1/2″ (inside) and 2 1/4″ x 6″ (envelope).
    • Vellum Cardstock: 3rd largest scallop die cut from Layering Circles Dies.
    • Basic White Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside panel).

    The Creating

    I began by stamping the “Thank You” sentiment from the Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set onto the center of the Soft Succulent square with Evening Evergreen Ink. I ran it through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the 4th from the smallest smooth die. I adhered the die cut to the Evening Evergreen scallop circle die cut with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the Vellum scallop die cut. I folded a 3″ piece of Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon in half over a Mini Glue Dot to hold it in place and then another Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon to the back of the vellum at about the 2 o’clock position so it would be in the top right square.

    I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the 1 1/2″ DSP squares to the 1 3/4″ Evening Evergreen squares and then to the card front. I also added the Vellum tag making sure the glue was covered by the Evening Evergreen circle. I added three of the Pale Papaya 2021-23 In Color Jewels along the bottom left square.


    I stamped the inside sentiment with Evening Evergreen Ink on the Basic White panel and added the DSP strip to the bottom with liquid glue before adhering it to the card base. I adhered the matching DSP to the envelope flap with liquid glue and trimmed the excess away with Paper Snips.

    Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Meets Pansy Petals Birthday Card

    The flowers in the Pansy Petals DSP along with the pictures in the front of the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog inspired tonight’s card. I used the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle which includes the Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp Set and the Brilliance Wings Dies. Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Soft Succulent Cardstock: 10 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ scored at 5 1/2″ (card base).
    • Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (4 patterns): 4 3/4″ x 4″ (front panel), 3/8″ x 4″ (strip), 2 1/2″ x 2″ (large butterfly), 2″ x 1 1/4″ (medium butterfly), 2″ x 1″ (small butterfly) and 2 1/4″ x 6″ (env).
    • Basic White Cardstock: Tasteful Label Dies die cut and 4 3/4″ x 4″ (inside panel).

    The Creating

    • I began by adhering the DSP panel to the front and the DSP strip to the inside, right edge with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
    • I used Evening Evergreen Ink to stamp the sentiment from Pansy Patch Stamp Set on the die cut from Tasteful Labels Dies. I also stamped the birthday sentiment on the inside panel.
    • I ran the DSPs with the butterfly dies through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. I positioned them on the card front with the label die. Once happy with the arrangement I adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
    • I added three Soft Succulent 2021-23 In Color Jewels to the label.
    • On the inside panel I added two tone butterflies created by inking in Pale Papaya Ink and then “rolling” the edges and touching the center on the corner of a Calypso Coral Pad or Soft Succulent Stamp Pad.
    • I adhered the DSP to the envelope with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips.
    • I adhered the stamped background panel to the Bumblebee panel to the Soft Suede panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I also adhered the stamped strip to the inside edge.
    • I added a strip of Stampin’ Seal to the lower left of the card. I wound Linen Thread around 3 fingers several times and then applied to the glue and spread it out a little. I topped it with the sunflower with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I embellished with Bumblebee 2020-2021 In Color Enamel Dots.
    • The decorated panel is popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

    Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog Sneak Peek – Pansy Patch Thank You Card

    The new Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is going to go live on May 4th! Here’s a sneak peek of the Pansy Patch Bundle which includes the Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Pansy Dies at a 10% discount. I also used the coordinating Pansy Petals 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper and the new 2021-2023 In Colors. Enjoy!


    The Paper Cuts 

    • Soft Succulent Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 8 1/2″ (card base), 6 leaf detail die cuts.
    • Evening Evergreen: 6 embossed leaf die cuts.
    • Vellum Cardstock: 3 of the large embossed pansy leaf die cuts and 3 of the single embossed pansy leaf die cuts.
    • Basic White Cardstock: 3 large pansy leaf edging die cuts, 3 single leaf edging die cuts, a 2″ smooth layering circle die cut and a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel (inside).
    • Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front), 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (env) and 4′ x 1/2″ (inside).
    • Bumblebee Cardstock: 1 pansy center die cut (cuts 3)
    • Fresh Freesia Cardstock: 3 larger pansy center die cuts.

    The Creating

    • With Evening Evergreen Ink, I stamped the sentiments from the Pansy Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set on the Layering Circles die cut and on the inside panel.
    • I placed the Vellum Cardstock pansy leaf die cuts and the Basic White pansy leaf tips on my Silicone Craft Mat and applied Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the backs fo the white tips. I lined them up on the tips of the vellum petals. Then I applied glue to the Fresh Freesia centers and placed them on the larger Vellum pansy petals. Tip: there are straight lines to line up to the edge of the white tips. Then I added the Bumblebee smaller centers with 1/2 of a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional. Tip: Mini Glue Dots would work too if you would like it a little less raised. I applied liquid glue to the back of the layer pansy so it was behind the Fresh Freesia die cut and wouldn’t be seen through the Vellum. I placed this on top of the single pansy leaf die cut.
    • I applied liquid glue to the Soft Succulent detail leaves and adhered them to the Evening Evergreen embossed die cuts.

    • I arranged the die cuts on the card front and adhered them in place. The pansy on the left is popped up with Mini Dimensionals (behind the Fresh Freesia) and the other elements are adhered with liquid glue.
    • I added three Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In Color Jewels. These are so pretty…there is an iridescent coating that really shines.
    • I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to apply the inside panel, the small DSP strip to the lower edge of the inside panel and the larger strip to the envelope flap, trimming the excess with Paper Snips.
