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.
