Stampin’ Up! Soft Spring Forever Lovely Card

Many are experiencing frustrations and various difficulties being separated during this Pandemic. Our Sunday school class decided to help each other encourage elderly parents and neighbors who are experiencing anxiety from living alone and being isolated. This card is going to a fellow member’s grandmother to let them know that they are being remembered and prayed for. I’m sure it will not only encourage the grandmother, but also my fellow SS member. I hope you’ll consider sharing a card with someone, too!

The Cuts

  • Whisper White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″ card base scored at 5 1/2″
  • Old Olive Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″

The Creating

  • Cut a Rectangle Stitched Die (3 15/16″ x 2 5/8″) from the Old Olive Cardstock layer (save for another project). Stamp the dragonfly in black ink. Position this piece on the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder and run through the Big Shot.
  • Put the Whisper White open cardstock on the Stamparatus with the Foam Mat in place and secure with the magnet. Lay the embossed panel on top as if it were adhered and place the floral stamp face down in the rectangle. Pick it up with the Stamparatus plate. Remove the embossed panel, ink the stamp with black ink and close the lid. If your impression is not good you can re-ink and stamp again.
  • Repeat with the flower stamp in Gorgeous Grape and the leaves in Pear Pizzazz.
  • Flip the card over repeat the Stamparatus process with the greeting, dragonfly and floral image all at once. Then add the purple flowers and green leaves.
  • Add the floral images to the envelope.
  • Adhere the embossed panel with Foam Adhesive Strips.
  • Add Wink of Stella to the dragonfly wings.

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Watercolor

This card uses the Timeless Tropical Bundle and Stitched Rectangle Dies. It is accompanied by the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper and Lovely Lipstick Cardstock which we will be saying good bye to shortly. It’s time to stock up! Enjoy tonight’s card.

The Cuts

  • Lovely Lipstick Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″ card base scored at 5 1/2″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″; Rectangle Stitched Die (3 15/16″ x 2 5/8″), Floral Die, and 3-Leaf Dies
  • Tropical Oasis DSP: 4″ x 5 1/4″ and 4 1/4″ x 3/4″ Strip

The Creating

  • Use StazOn Black Ink to stamp the Hibiscus and 3 Leaves from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set. Stamp the Sentiment on the Stitched Rectangle and on the inside panel (This one came from So Sentimental). Immediately clean your stamps with the StazOn Cleaner. This prevents the permanent ink from building up on your stamps. Because StazOn is permanent, it will not run when watercoloring.
  • Use the Petal Pink, Lovely Lipstick, Real Red and Cherry Cobbler Ink to watercolor the flower with the Aqua Painters in layers from dark at the center to light at the edges. The Whisper White will tend to buckle more than Watercolor paper so don’t put too much water down. I just squeeze it into the color on the lid of my ink pads instead of placing it on my paper in this instance. Tip: I also lay the watercolored images face down on my grid paper and apply a large block to the top as it dries to help flatten it.
  • Use the Pear Pizzazz to watercolor in the entire surface of the leaves. Then add Old Olive to one side and Garden Green to the other leaving the veins Pear Pizzazz. Tip: The color inspirations are from the DSP.
  • I wanted more depth in the center so I used matching Stampin’ Blends to the black lines in the image for accent. I used Dark Daffodil Delight and Petal Pink on the stamen and finished with Wink of Stella. I added a little Dark Basic Black Blend to the very center around the base of the stamen. Tip: Don’t be afraid to mix mediums.
  • Use Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to adhere the DSP layer to the card front and the Stitched Rectangle to the DSP. Position and add the leaves. Also adhere the inside panel and DSP strip inside the card.
  • Pop the hibiscus with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
