Clean and Simple Secret Garden Flower Dies Stamping

bloomin' marvelous secret garden card

More clean and simple collage stamping in this greeting card created with the Stampin’ Up! Secret Garden stamp and flowers die bundle and the FREE Bloomin’ Marvelous set available during Sale-a-bration with a $50 product purchase.

I stamped this on yummy Shimmery White cardstock.  It’s hard to photograph but if you look closely, you can see the shimmer!  And using the framelit dies made masking and layering these flowers super easy.  (You can watch the video below to see how!)

I tried stamping the black sentiment directly over the flowers, but it didn’t show up the way I liked so I stamped it on a piece of vellum to layer over the top.  Using the vellum allowed the thought to stand out more without completely covering the flower design.  A perfect solution!

Cross My Heart Valentine Card and Video

cross my heart pink & black card

 I love the crossword puzzle look in the Cross My Heart stamp and was anxious to make a simple valentine card with the I love you puzzle and the adorable little elephants!

Here’s another Valentine card video tutorial!  (If you can’t see the video in your email or feed, just click to the post to view.)  A few years ago our dog chewed up the end of my heat tool, but the darn thing keeps working so I keep using it.  I need it to stop working because I need a good excuse to buy the new heat tool, which is AWESOME.

Using the heart from the More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper made this project extra special and easy.

And embossing the I Love You on the Pink Pirouette cardstock gives it a crisp, clean look.

Hearts a Flutter Valentine Note Card & Video

hearts a flutter seasonal sayings note card

I decided to have a little fun making valentines with the Hearts A Flutter stamps and die bundle and the Stampin’ Up! note cards and envelopes.  This Valentines note card is made  in the collage style with In-Colors Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit and Pool Party with a little Basic Gray for a hip color palette.

stampin' up! hearts a flutter bundle

The note cards and envelopes come in a pack of 20 which is perfect for making Valentine cards!  And you can simplify the card by just stamping a heart inside of the larger heart instead of die-cutting the embossed More Amore designer series paper heart to add to the middle.  Set out several cards at once and stamp each step for easy mass production.

Blissful Bird Wedding Card

     Ciao Baby! Blissful Bird Wedding Card make a card

I love this Stampin’ Up! Blissful Bird stamp that coordinates with the Bird Builder punch, but I hadn’t used it yet.  So I combined it here with Ciao, Baby! and the fun Sale-a-bration Petite Curly Label punch to make this wedding card.  And, by the way, I love Ciao, Baby! Not only the stamp set – I just love saying the name!  Ciao, Baby!

Ciao Blissful Bird Wedding Card close up

I used the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper as an inspiration for the colors.  I stamped the Blissful Bird stamp twice – once in Pretty in Pink and once with Regal Rose – to create the bird.   I stamped it a third time with Lucky Limeade to punch out the branch.  I wanted a softer look so I stamped the Lucky Limeade off once before stamping and punching.

Ciao Blissful Bird Wedding Card detail

Love from the Ciao, Baby! stamp set was stamped with Pretty in Pink and punched out with the Petite Label Punch available for FREE with a qualifying Sale-a-bration order.  I stamped ‘bride & groom’ on Very Vanilla cardstock with the Sweet Essentials stamp set in Island Indigo.  Again, because I wanted a softer look I stamped if off once before stamping on the card.

The heart is punched from the Silver Glimmer paper.  (Learn how to get a free pack during Sale-a-bration.)  I love the little heart in the birds beak.  Don’t you?  I ran the So Saffron pattern paper from the Tea for Two dsp pack through the Big Shot in the new SAB Vine Street Embossing Folder (also available for FREE with a qualifying SAB order).
