Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Friendship Card

I used the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set and the coordinating Nature’s Thoughts Dies from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog to create this pretty in Polished Pink friendship card. It features 2021-23 In Colors in the cardstock, inks and embellishments. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Polished Pink Cardstock: 4 1/4′′ x 11′′ scored at 5 1/2′′ (card base)
  • Basic White Cardstock: two 4″ x 5 1/4″ panels (inside and card front) and 4 1/2″ x 11″ (stamping & die cutting)
  • Soft Succulent Cardstock: 1″ x 4″ (die cutting sprigs)

The Creating

With Positive Pink Ink I stamped the “Friends like you” sentiment from the Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set onto the top right corner of a Basic White panel and the “Hugs, Prayer, Love” on the center of the other Basic White panel. I also stamped three of the floral images on the Basic White strip.

With Soft Succulent Ink, I stamped three of the fern frond images on the Basic White Strip. I also stamped a couple on the inside panel in first generation and second generation ink. I repeated on the envelope including a third generation as well.

I used the floral outline and fern frond outline dies from Nature’s Thoughts Dies to cut out the images with the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. I also cut out the floral center die three times from the remaining Basic White strip. This die is so cool because you can use your Take Your Pick Tool to raise the small petals so that the color peeks from underneath! I also die cut four of the 3 leaf die and one of the 6 leaf die from the Soft Succulent Cardstock.


To assemble the card, I positioned the fern fronds and adhered the top two with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the bottom one with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then added the pink flowers…the top right with liquid glue and the other two with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added the white centers with dots of liquid glue. I tucked the small leaf die cuts in with liquid glue.

The final embellishment is three Polished Pink 2021-23 In Color Jewels in the center of each flower.

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Spring Notecard

We had a beautiful sunny day today and I am just itching for Spring. I used the Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set and coordinating Nature’s Thoughts Dies from the 2020-21 Annual Catalog for this card. I hope you enjoy the card.

The Paper Cuts

  • Garden Green Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
  • Basic White Cardstock: Stitched Rectangle Die (approx 3 1/4″ x 1 1/4″, sentiment), 2″ x 4″ (butterfly dies), and two 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front and inside)

The Creating

  • With Tuxedo Black Ink, I stamped three butterflies from the Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set on Basic White Cardstock. I colored them with Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends and then die cut them with the Nature’s Thoughts Dies and Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. I added Wink of Stella to the wings for a little glam.
  • With Garden Green Ink, I stamped the sentiment on the Stitched Rectangles die cut and randomly stamped the fern image on the Basic White panels and Basic White Envelope.
  • To assemble I used Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to apply the Basic White panels to the card base. I popped the butterflies and the Stitched Rectangle die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I embellished with three Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Card

I was on a committee for a Woman’s Lake Retreat that was to take place in April, but was cancelled by COVID19. I purchased this stamp and die set for an Art Project for the ladies to decorate their “spiral flip” desktop Scripture cards and to make a couple of greeting cards to share with their friends. This particular card was inspired by a sample card on Page 87 in the new Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Old Olive Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″ card base scored at 5 1/2″
  • Pretty Peacock Cardstock: 5″ x 3 3/4″
  • Peaceful Poppies DSP: Rectangle Die from Nature’s Thoughts Dies (this paper is retiring with the Jan-Jun 2020 Mini Catalog)
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 4 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ Inside Panel, 2 frond dies, a butterfly die and a scrap from the sentiment.

The Creating

  • Stamp the butterfly and a frond from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Die Cut the images with the coordinating dies in the Nature’s Thoughts die set.
  • Stamp a second generation frond image in Pretty Peacock on the Whisper White Panel.
  • Stamp a frond in Pear Pizzazz on Whisper White Cardstock and die cut.
  • In Old Olive Ink stamp the “Sending…” sentiment on the Whisper White Panel and the “Friends…” sentiment on Whisper White Cardstock. Fussy cut the later with Paper Snips.
  • With Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive, adhere the Pretty Peacock Cardstock Panel to the card base. Top with the Rectangle Die. Add the Pretty Peacock frond die and the butterfly die. Add the Whisper White Panel to the inside.
  • Pop the Pear Pizzazz frond die and the “Friends” fussy cut sentiment up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add Wink of Stella to the butterfly wings, pulling the color into the center.
