Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Card

I used the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set and coordinating Sunflower Dies from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog for this card. Feeling ready for sunshine and sunflowers! Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Thick Basic White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
  • Basic White Cardstock: 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ (front panel) and 2 1/2″ x 2″ (sunflower)
  • Bumblebee Cardstock: 3 3/4″ x 5″ (front panel) and 4″ x 1/2″ (inside strip)
  • Soft Suede Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front panel)

The Creating

  • I “loaded” Bumblebee Ink on the lid the ink pad, squeezed water into the barrel of my medium Water Painter and picked up the thinned ink. I tapped it against my finger over the Basic White panel to create the splatter.
  • With Soft Suede Ink, I stamped the sunflower image on the Basic White cardstock and the corner of the envelope. I colored the images with Stampin’ Blends: Light & Dark Daffodil Delight (front petals), Light & Dark Mango Melody (back petals) and Light & Dark Old Olive (leaves). I die cut the colored sunflower for the card front. Now that the panel was dry I stamped the sentiment as a background randomly on the card front and added the sentiment on the inside.
  • With Bumblebee Ink I stamped the sunflower on the inside of the card (over the sentiment) and on the bumblebee strip for texture.

  • 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! Sweet Ice Cream Birthday Card

I used the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle from the January to June 2021 Mini Catalog (page 49) for this fun birthday card. The bundle includes the Sweet Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Ice Cream Builder Punch at a 10% discount when purchased together (item no. 156244). Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Thick Basic White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
  • Basic White Cardstock: largest scallop rectangle die cut from Stitched So Sweetly Dies.
  • True Love 12×12 Designer Series Paper: 5 1/2″ x 4″ (front panel and inside strip)
  • Bermuda Bay Cardstock: 1 1/2” x 2” (ice cream scoop)
  • Blackberry Bliss Cardstock:  1 1/2″ x 2″ (ice cream scoop)
  • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 3″ x 2″ (ice cream cones)

The Creating

I began by coloring the white stripes in the True Love Designer Series Paper panel with Stampin’ Blends: Pumpkin Pie Dark, Blackberry Bliss Light, and Bermuda Bay Light. I colored a 17″ piece of White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon with the Bermuda Bay Light Stampin’ Blend. I trimmed 1/4″ off the long edge of the panel. I adhered the panel to the card front and the strip to the inside bottom edge with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

With the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch, I punched two cones from Pumpkin Pie Cardstock and an ice cream scoop from Bermuda Bay Cardstock and from Blackberry Bliss Cardstock. With VersaMark Ink, I added the cross hatch image to the cones and the sprinkles to the Bermuda Bay ice cream scoop. I used Whisper White Craft Ink to add the sprinkles to the Blackberry Bliss ice cream scoop. I hit the images with the Heat Tool to ensure the ink was dry. I applied liquid glue across the top edge of the cones and topped with the ice cream scoops. I added Wink of Stella to the sprinkles for a little sparkle. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals (top) and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (point of cone) to the backs of the cones.

I stamped the sentiment on the Stitched So Sweetly panel with Tuxedo Black Ink and tied the colored ribbon around the panel with a bow. I popped the ice cream cones on over the ribbon and added the decorated die cut to the front panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With Bermuda Bay Ink, I stamped “Happy Birthday” on the inside of the card and an ice cream scoop on the front of the Basic White Medium Envelope. I masked the ice cream scoop and stamped the cone image in 2nd Generation Pumpkin Pie Ink and the crosshatch image in 1st Generation Pumpkin Pie Ink. I added the “Hope It’s Sweet” inside the card with Tuxedo Black Ink.

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! Dragonfly Garden Thank You Card

I used the Dragonfly Garden Bundle from the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog for this card. It contains the Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set and the Dragonflies Punch. To color the dragonfly I searched the internet for pictures of actual species. They come in so many color varieties! This one looks like a rainbow! I hope you enjoy the card.

The Paper Cuts

  • Mossy Meadow Cardstock: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ (card base)

  • Vellum Cardstock: 4 x 5 1/4″

The Creating

  • With Tuxedo Black Ink, I stamped the dragonfly on Basic White Cardstock. I colored it with Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends in Mossy Meadow, Misty Moonlight, Blackberry Bliss and Balmy Blue. I added Wink of Stella to the wings and then punched it with with the Dragonflies Punch.
  • I ran the Vellum Cardstock through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine inside the leafy Greenery Embossing Folder. I added it to the card front with 4 strategically placed Mini Glue Dots.
  • With Tuxedo Black Ink, I stamped the sentiments on the Stitched Shapes circle die cut and the Basic White inside panel.
  • I added the paper layers to the card and envelope with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess on the envelope with Paper Snips.
  • I wrapped the Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim around the card front and tied it in a bow. The dragonfly is added with two Mini Glue Dots. The one on the tail overhung a little so I used my Take Your Pick Tool to roll the edges onto itself. I slightly curled the wings with my Bone Folder.
  • I added three (3) Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots to the card front.
