Really Good Greetings Thank You Flowers

really good greetings flower thank you card www.stampingjulie.com I’ve had the idea for this thank you card swimming around my head since the introduction of the new Stampin’ Up! In Colors – Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Pistachio Pudding.  If you look closely you’ll see that the front panel is scored into sections, then in each section is a Floral Fusion Sizzlets flower with the ‘gee, thanks’ (from the new Stampin’ Up! Really Good Greetings stamp set) stamped in the top middle section in Strawberry Slush.

I even made a matching envelope.  The envelope was stamped with the flowers from Betsy’s Blossoms in Strawberry Slush.  I’m making a coordinating envelope with almost every card these days.  It doesn’t take much to do and I think it makes the card extra special.  But if you are like me you are wondering about the dimensions on this card.

I had to do some real math to get this panel to work out just right.  Here’s my math.  The card base measures 3-3/4″ x 5-1/2″.  The front panel is 3-1/2″ x 5-1/4″.  The front panel is scored across at 1-3/4″ and 3-1/2″ and then turned and scored crosswise at 1-3/4″.  When you are done, each scored section is 1-3/4″ square.  Of course, the Simply Scored Scoring Tool made this a super simple task!

The new Strawberry Slush In Color is definitely one of my favorites, so I used that to stamp the greeting.  If you stamp your greeting on an angle, you didn’t have to worry about lining it up just right to make it straight.  Plus, I think it adds more whimsy and interest to the card.  What do you think?

Each flower was centered with a circle of contrasting cardstock and topped with a rhinestone.  I just love the self-adhesive rhinestone Basic Jewels.  And I love the fact that they also come with a few rhinestones attached in a line, which was perfect to underline ‘gee, thanks’.

Easter Egg Basket Favor

hearts a flutter easter basket This fun little Happy Easter Egg Basket Favor is made quickly from Pretty in Pink cardstock and the small oval punch.  This would be a great little treat to give to friends, family or co-workers.

hearts a flutter easter basket favor

I started with a 5″ x 9-1/2″ piece of cardstock that I scored at 2-1/2″, 4-1/2″, 7″, 9″, then scored 2″ from the bottom, which is easily done with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.  Fold it up like you would the 2-4-6-8 box.  Before I assembled the box I inserted the 2-1/2″ side into the large oval punch to punch the window.  Then I cut a 2″ x 2-1/2″ piece of window sheet and adhered the window sheet inside the box with glue dots.

The handle is punched from the Scallop Ribbon punch and the ends covered with a punched Itty Bitty Shape punch flower.

I stamped the Easter eggs on this Easter Egg Basket Favor box with the designs from the Hearts of Flutter stamp set, punched them out with the small oval punch and adhered them to the front of the box.  I then used a piece of Certainly Celery cardstock randomly snipped to make the grass.  The interior is also filled with thinly sliced cardstock.

Bloomin’ Marvelous Color Chalk Butterflies

bloomin' marvelous chalkboard butterfly card 2

This little butterfly number features two exclusive Sale-a-bration products the Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp Set & Vine Street Embossing Folder.  The card base is made with Crumb Cake cardstock, embossed with the Vine Street Embossing Folder and splattered with a little Melon Mambo reinker.

To create the butterfly panel, I started with Basic Black cardstock and rubbed it lightly with the Whisper White Craft Pad.  After heat setting the craft ink, I prepared the panel with the Embossing Buddy and then stamped a couple of butterflies with VersaMark.

I heat embossed the first set of butterfles with the Melon Mambo embossing powder, then stamped a couple of more butterflies, heat embossed that set with Tangerine Tango embossing powder.  And then finally stamped a couple of more butterflies and heat embossed with the Pool Party embossing powder

One butterfly was stamped on a scrap of basic black, heat embossed, punched out with the Bitty Butterfly punch and blinged up with a little rhinestone.

If you look closely, you’ll see that I scored a couple of lines on the top and bottom edges of the butterfly panel with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.  I also ran the edges across the versamark pad and heat embossed it with Tangerine Tango embossing powder.

Bloomin’ Marvelous with Chalkboard Stamping

bloomin' marvelous hummingbird flower chalkboard stamping card

The chalkboard technique is so easy and fun and gives great results especially with the  Sale-a-bration Bloomin’ Marvelous stamp set!  If you want to learn more about chalkboard stamping, check out this Jar of Hearts valentine post and video.  If you’ve liked my Stamping Julie facebook page, you saw this card a few days ago.

I started with a Crumb Cake cardstock card base.  When I want to add ribbon around a portrait oriented card I cut my cardstock at 4-1/2″ x 11″.  The SAB Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack has three great ribbon colors – Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo & Pool Party – and the set comes with matching buttons in Tangerine Tango and Pool Party.  I decided to use the Tangerine Tango ribbon and buttons for a bold splash of color on an otherwise neutral card.

To add an additional ‘splash’ of color, I dropped Tangerine Tango color on the background as well.  This is easy to do with reinkers. Just put a couple of drops of ink on the lid of your open stamp pad and add a drop or two of water to dilute it a bit.  Then use a paint brush to pick up the ink and splash it over your card base.

You may want to experiment first on scratch paper first if you’ve never done this before so you get just the look you want.

I scored a border down the left side with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and the Borders Scoring Plate and swiped just a bit of white craft ink over the embossing so that it would stand out a little more.

How to Make Envelopes

hearts a flutter heart shaped card

Today I’ll show you how to make envelopes.  Yesterday I gave you all the details about this heart-shaped valentine.  Today it’s all about making the envelope that’s perfect for your special card.  NOTE: This envelope is not a standard size.  Please see measurements below.

more amore envelopes

The trick is not only to make the envelope but to make the envelope so that your pattern on your paper is heading the right direction!  For example, if I just cut a square from the papers pictured above and placed my diagonal score lines to create my envelopes, the hearts would be on the diagonal instead of facing up.  Oh, dear.  That won’t do.

more amore envelope back

Of course on the flap the pattern will be necessarily upside down, but that’s ok.  😉  The front is what matters.  Check out the video tutorial on how to create this custom envelope.

Supplies needed:
(All supplies are Stampin’ Up! Click on the product link to visit my store for pictures, details & ordering.)
 More Amore Designer Series Paper #129309
Simply Scored Scoring Tool #122334
Simply Scored Diagonal Plate #125586
 

BUNDLE BONUS:  When you order the Scoring Tool, Diagonal Plate and any pack of Designer Series Paper together, you’ll receive a FREE Sale-a-bration bonus item.

Envelope measurements:  Cut square 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Score diagonal on opposite corners at 2-1/4″.  Score remaining corners at 3-3/4″.  Your envelope will measure about 3-1/8″ x 3-3/4″.

Now you can get busy making your own valentines now that you know how to make envelopes!

Enjoy, Julie
