Stampin’ Up! Happiest Field Flowers

Field Flowers happiest card angle

Even during the Christmas season, you’ll need other cards to let your friends know you are thinking about them for their birthday or another special event.  This card is cased from the Field Flowers sample in the Stampin’ Up! 2012 Catalog page  137.

I used the sentiment that comes with the set, but you could easily make this a happy birthday or thank you card by changing the sentiment, or stamping or writing the appropriate message inside.  I just love the Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Early Espresso colors on this card.  It’s bright and cheery which is much needed during the dreary winter months.

The flowers and stems are separate stamps so it is easy to use two different colors.  To get the darker and lighter flower, I stamped the darker one first and then stamped the lighter one without reinking the stamp.  To create two different colors on the sentiment stamp, first inked it with Regal Rose and then colored ‘happiest’ with an Early Espresso marker.

Here are a couple of videos that show the markering-your-stamps technique.  This first one features a technique called omitting: Stampin’ Up! Perfect Punches Congratulations Card. And the second shows coloring in the whole stamp: Stampin’ Up! Embellished Events Birthday.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU!  Are you wondering what to get with your birthday money?   Go shopping at the Stampin’ Up! Clearence Rack today!

Enjoy!  Julie

Perfectly Preserved Flower Card

Perfectly Preserved just for you card

I really love this mason jar stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Preserved stamp set.  I especially love it stamped in StazOn ink on a Window Sheet.  And to make it even better, using the Cannery framelits to trim it out in a snap with the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine!

I stamped the stem in the jar on Whisper White and layered it under the die-cut window sheet.  Then I stamped another stem and trimmed it out, adding the leaves and the flower.  The flower was created with the Boho Blossoms punch.   I punched out several layers pierced the center with the Paper Piercing Tool and secured it with a mini Silver Brad.  I secured the flower to the card front with mini glue dots.

The International Bazaar Designer Series Paper creates a vibrant background paper.  Using the little flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, I created three little blossoms with mini Silver Brad centers.  Daffodil Delight ribbon adds another splash of color and texture.

I found that using the multipurpose liquid glue was the best choice for adhering the window sheet and whisper white cardstock jar layers.  I quickly cut out the banner greeting  with the a Bitty Banners framelit.  I used a dimensional to pop the banner up.

Stampin’ Up! Nature Walk Collage Greeting

nature walk for you card

I have always loved the collage style but it doesn’t come naturally to me.  The Nature Walk stamp set makes collage stamping easy and using clear-mount stamps makes it even easier.  I mounted the bee, butterfly and number stamp on one block and stamped them in More Mustard.

I stamped the bird egg images with Sahara Sand and the floral image with Old Olive.  Finally I stamped the bird cage with Midnight Muse and added a wire hanger with a straight edge and the fine tip Midnight Muse marker.

I created the ‘For You’ tag with the Layered Labels stamp set stamped in Old Olive and die-cut with the Apothecary  Accents Framelits.  I stamped it again with Midnight Muse and punched with the large oval punch and layered it all with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The final touch was knotted on with stitched Midnight Muse ribbon.

I was going for a simple, sophisticated collage greeting card.  I hope I hit the mark!  What do you think?

Stampin’ Up! Moving Forward Flower Baskets

moving forward flower pots thinking of you angleThis cheery friendship card was inspired by a card from the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator magazine (get your copy when you join today for only $99) and features the Ronald McDonald House Charities Stamp Set, Moving Forward, as shown on the inside back cover of the Stampin’ Up! catalog.  When you purchase this set, $3 will be donated to charity.

    Moving Forward stamp set

The petite basket is actually from the cute bicycle image.  Using a Early Espresso Marker, I colored and stamped only the basket three times.  Using the same method I stamped ‘Thinking of You’.  And lastly using markers again, I colored the flowers and stamped them in the baskets.  This video demonstrates how to stamp with markers.

Once the images are stamped, I centered a Collection Labels framelit over it, secured it with post it notes and ran it through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  The tiniest Basic Jewels Pearls were added to the flower centers.

 The card base is 6″x6″ square of Pumpkin Pie card stock, folded in half to produce a 3″x6″ card.  Matching Polka Dot Parade paper was trimmed into a flag banner.  View Monday’s video to see how to easily create a flag end with a square punch.  Or view it here.

Primrose Petals Stitched Satin Ribbon was added down the right side and tied with bakers twine before the label was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.   The Stitched Satin Ribbon is yummy.  Great colors, great look and fabulous to work with.  It’s super soft and pliable!  Love it!  And there’s no limit.  A free spool for EVERY $40 in ordered product.
