Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Fall Leaves Card

I created this Fall card with a variety of stamp sets that you wouldn’t expect to go together…the leaves are from the Sweet Strawberry Photopolymer Stamp Set, the sentiments from the Encircled in Friendship Cling Stamp Set and the Designer Series Paper is part of the Beauty of Friendship Collection, but they make a great card!  Don’t be afraid to mix and match!

The Paper Cuts

  • Early Expresso Cardstock:  8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, scored at 4 1/4” (card base)
  • Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper:  5 1/4” x 4” (front panel)
  • Basic White Cardstock:  3rd smallest Stitched Rectangle die cut,   2 1/2″ x 4″ (for stamping/punching) and 5 1/4” x 4” (inside panel)

The Creating

The leaves are Two-Step Stamping with a detail stamp (1st generation ink) and a fill stamp (2nd generation ink).  On Basic White Card, I stamped two Soft Suede leaves and one each of Pumpkin Pie, Bumblebee and Cajun Craze.  I punched these out with the coordinating Strawberry Builder Punch.

I stamped a Pumpkin Pie, Bumblebee and Soft Suede leaf on the inside panel and on the envelope.  I added the sentiment on the inside panel with Early Expresso Ink.  I stamped the sentiment on the Stitched Rectangle die cut with Early Expresso Ink and then ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine inside the Timber Embossing Folder.

The DSP and inside panels are adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.  The label and punched leaves are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed 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! Butterfly Brilliance Hello Notecard

    This card is made with the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle (see details below). The upcoming 2021-22 Annual Catalog (which I can’t wait for you to see!) has some beautiful examples of cards created using the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils. It has inspired me to pull mine out. They really do enhance the Distinctive Stamps and shaded artwork! Enjoy!


    The Paper Cuts 

    • Night of Navy Cardstock: 8 1/2″ x 4 1/2″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base).
    • Daffodil Delight Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″ (front panel)
    • Vellum Cardstock: 5″ x 3 3/4″ (front)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″ panel (inside), 2″ x 1 1/2″ and 3″ x 2″ (die cutting)

    The Creating

    First, I must confess, I have dissected my Butterfly Brilliance stamp. It comes as one large cling mount stamp that stamps all six butterflies in one fell swoop (pun intended, lol). This allows the die from Brilliance Wings Dies to cut all of them at one. I took scissors and snipped the rubber between the butterflies (but I did not trim the excess away). I can still put them together (like a puzzle) on a block and stamp all of them, but now I can easily ink and stamp them individually instead of having to carefully position around the others.

    • I stamped the butterfly in Tuxedo Black Ink on the 3″ x 2″ Basic White Cardstock. I added the color with the Watercolor Pencils. I lightly went over the colored in area with a Blender Pen to smooth and brighten the color. I passed the colored image through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine under the coordinating butterfly die. I cut the shortest die from Stitched Rectangles Dies from the 2″ x 1 1/2″ Basic White Cardstock.
    • With Night of Navy Ink I stamped the butterfly randomly over the Daffodil Delight Cardstock panel. I stamped it on the corner of the Basic White Medium Envelope. I also stamped it in 2nd generation on the inside panel so that writing could be seen over it if the space was needed. I added the “Hello” sentiment from the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set to the Stitched Rectangle die cut and the sentiment inside from the Happy Thoughts Stamp Set.
    • To adhere the card together I added Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back of the Daffodil Delight panel and applied it to the card base. I did the same with the inside layer. I placed the Vellum panel in place (without adhering) and applied the stitched square and the butterfly with Mini Glue Dots. I added the three Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels. I flipped the vellum over and applied liquid glue behind the added elements to adhere it to the card base so the adhesive would not show from the front.

    Let me know if you have any questions!  You can drop me an email me at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you.
