Perennial Essence + Tropical Oasis = One Cute Easter Card!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a super cute Easter card made with products from the Perennial Essence Suite and the Tropical Oasis Suite! I needed to make a few more Easter cards to send out and to create something different. I wanted to make a cute little bunny card, so I set out to figure out how in the world I was going to create one when I do not have any bunny stamps or punches. I’ve seen some super cute cards that used both Daisy Punches for the ears, but that’s not what I was quite looking for. After looking at my punches, I thought the Perennial Flower Punch would be perfect, but how do I create the inside of the ears? Would you believe the Leaf Punch worked perfectly?? After some “experimenting” with what I wanted for the card front, I decided to go with the “ears” peeking out of grass. Buuuuttttt, I don’t have a current die or punch to create the grass, so now what? (I could always use something retired, but that wouldn’t be fair if you don’t have it) Would you believe I used the crown (or top) die for the pineapple from the In the Tropics Dies!! So, once I figured this all out, the rest of the card just came all together!

The base layer is Crumb Cake cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. I used my Soft Suede ink pad to ink the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder, spritz the cardstock with water, and embossed:

For the card front, you will need:

1. A 4 ½” strip of the Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim.

2. A 2 ¼” x 4” piece of this design from the Perennials Essence DSP.

3. Using Whisper White cardstock, use the top leaf from the Perennial Flower Punch to punch out four “bunny ears”.

4. Using Petal Pink cardstock, use the top leaf from the Leaf Punch to punch out four pieces that will be used for the inside of the bunny ears. I used my snips to trim off any excess and to round the cardstock and used my Wink of Stella pen. These are adhered to the Whisper White cardstock pieces with liquid glue.

5. The bottom sentiment from Timeless Tulips is masked to heat emboss the top sentiment in Gold Emboss Powder on So Saffron cardstock. This is then cut out with the smallest rectangle Stitched Rectangle Die.

6. For the grass, I used the crown (or top) die for the pineapple from In the Tropics. I created to smaller pieces in Pear Pizzazz cardstock and the larger piece in Old Olive cardstock. Tip-line the die up with the straight edge of the cardstock, this will make positioning the “grass” easier and not waste any cardstock, if you were to cut the whole piece out of cardstock and then cut down. Also, these dies emboss and cut, so spritz the cardstock with water so the embossed parts show better.

To have the bunny ears poking out from behind the grass, I placed the ears on my grid paper, laid the grass on top to the position I wanted, and then placed a little bit of liquid glue on the back of the grass piece to adhere the ears:

Adhere the DSP layer to the embossed base layer and the larger piece of Old Olive grass in the middle of the DSP with liquid glue:

The two smaller pieces of Pear Pizzazz grass with the bunny ears are adhered with liquid glue, the scalloped lace trim is adhered under the DSP piece (ends adhered behind the embossed base layer), and then the sentiment is adhered over the scalloped lace trim with Mini Dimensionals:

This completed piece is adhered to a So Saffron cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, I masked the top of the sentiment so I could heat emboss the bottom sentiment in Gold Emboss Powder and adhered a ¾” x 4” piece of coordinating DSP along the bottom:

Sweet Butterfly Wishes

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun birthday card featuring the Butterfly Wishes stamp set! With all of the excitement of new products from the release of the 2020 Mini and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs, let’s not forget about the Annual Catalog! First thing most of us do when we start creating a card, is that we have a theme or a stamp set in mind to use, but what if you are just creating cards to have a little fun? That’s what this card is for me as I didn’t have any particular theme or stamp set in mind, which made creating this card pretty easy! I just looked at my stamp sets from the annual catalog and decided that I would use Butterfly Wishes, why not? Then it was just a matter of choosing colors for the card, paper, and embellishments!

The base layer for this card is this design from the 2019-2021 In Color 6” x 6” DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front, you will need:

1. A 4 ¼” piece of the Purple Posy Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

2. Stamp the large butterfly from the stamp set on Whisper White cardstock in Blackberry Bliss ink, punch out with the Butterfly Duet Punch, use your paper snips to trim the cardstock down even more to the stamped image edge, and use the Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Marker along the outside edge of the cardstock, this will help “hide” any little bits of white along the edge. Use the Butterfly Duet Punch to punch out the large butterfly in Blackberry Bliss cardstock, this will be layered under the other butterfly image that you fussy cut down.

3. Stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White cardstock and use the smallest rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. Since the sentiment is longer than the die, you will use the die to cut part of the sentiment and then line the die back up with the cut pattern to continue cutting the sentiment out. You are basically using the die to “customize” die cutting the sentiment.

4. Use the second largest rectangle Stitched Rectangle Die to cut out of Whisper White cardstock and I used my Stamparatus to stamp the small butterfly in Blackberry Bliss ink at the top and the bottom. Use the largest rectangle Stitched Rectangle die to cut out a piece of Basic Gray cardstock, this will be layered under the Whisper White cardstock stamped piece.

5. You will also need three of the largest clear epoxy droplets from the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets (not pictured).

The card base for this card is Basic Gray cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. I first adhered the DSP base layer to the card base and then used Tear & Tape to adhere the scalloped ribbon across the middle:

The stitched rectangle layers are adhered with dimensionals to the DSP base layer over the ribbon, use mini dimensionals to adhere the large butterfly and sentiment, and then apply the three large clear epoxy droplets to the scalloped ribbon:

For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, adhere the ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the bottom and stamp the sentiment and butterfly in Blackberry Bliss ink. If you want the butterfly to by lighter, stamp off once first before stamping on the cardstock:

I just love how this card turned out! I know sometimes it’s easy to overlook Purple Posy if you do not have the ink pad, but it is also easy to use in your color combo, like I did with the DSP and scalloped ribbon!

One last Sale-A-Bration card!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is one last card from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog! I can’t believe that the catalog ends tomorrow! So, that means you have the rest of the day today and tomorrow to place a qualifying order for those SAB products that are still available! I thought I would do one last card featuring products from the SAB catalog and the Little Ladybug stamp set would be perfect!! This is a very simple and fun card made with a whole lot of heat embossing! I say simple for you, but I actually played around with some ideas for this card, so, not so simple for me! Lol I really wanted to do something in black and white, kind of like a “chalk board” card, so it did require some “experimenting” before I found the version that I liked (I’ll share a couple of those at the end of the post).

I first made the base layer by using the largest layering Stitched Rectangle Die on a piece of Basic Black cardstock. I used the cloud stamp from This Little Piggy in Whisper White Craft Ink and heat embossed with Shimmer White Emboss Powder:

For the rest of the card front, you will need:

1. On Basic Black cardstock, stamp the large flower in Whisper White Craft ink, heat emboss with Shimmer White Emboss Powder, and cut out with the coordinating die.

2. On Basic Black cardstock, stamp the flying ladybug in Whisper White Craft ink, heat emboss with Shimmer White Emboss Powder, and cut out with the coordinating die.

3. On Basic Black cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Whisper White Craft ink, heat emboss with Shimmer White Emboss Powder, and cut out with the one non-layering Stitched Rectangle Die.

4. Use the second smallest layering Stitched Rectangle Die to cut a piece of Real Red cardstock. Use the sentiment piece to guide you to reposition the die so it will cut a layering piece under the sentiment. 

To assemble the base layer, use Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the flower, ladybug, and layered sentiment piece:

For the card base, cut a piece of Real Red cardstock at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and score at 4 ¼”. Go ahead and fold/burnish your card base, ink the All Wired Up stamp completely with Memento ink, and lay the side that will be your card front on top and rub the backside so the inked image will transfer to the cardstock. I use a scrap piece of paper over the top of the cardstock and then rub, this will keep my fingers and hands getting ink on them. The base layer is adhered on top:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”. I used my Stamparatus to line up and stamp the stamps. I first positioned the stamps to see if there was enough room on each side of the sentiment for the ladybugs and since there is, I lined the ladybugs up on the left side and then the sentiment next to it, stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Shimmer Black Emboss Powder. I cleaned the ladybug stamp, lined it up to the right of the sentiment stamp, removed the sentiment stamp from the plate, and then stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed in Shimmer Black Emboss Powder:

Here are my first two versions, one is simply stamped in Whisper White Craft Ink and the other is stamped in the ink as well, but then heat embossed with Shimmer White Emboss Powder:

Which version do you like?? Each version is taking it a “step up”, I definitely like the heat embossed versions, but since I felt it was a little “flat”, that’s what made me to decide to try it with die cutting images. I honestly like the third version with the popped up die cut images best!

One Sheet Wonder with Lovely Lily Pad

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which feature’s the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set, Lily Pad Dies, and Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration Catalog! A couple of weeks ago, I participated in the Stamp It Group’s monthly blog hop which featured cards and projects from the SAB catalog and for my card, I used the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and coordinating Lily Pad Dies. Well, I absolutely loved how the lily turned out using Stampin’ Blends and heat embossing, so I wanted to create another card, but change up the colors used. The design I used for the base layer of this card actually inspired the colors I used for the lily, which I love how this turned out as well!

For the base layer, I chose this design from the Lily Impressions DSP. This DSP comes in 12” x 12” sheets, so I cut this sheet up to create six cards: trim 1 ½” off the bottom, turn the DSP 90 degrees, cut at 4”, three times across (you will have three 4” x 10 ½” sheets), and then cut those sheets in half (along the 10 ½” side) at 5 ¼”. As for the 1 ½” x 12” strip, cut that at the 4” mark three times and then cut the 1 ½” side in half, at ¾”. This will give you six small strips measuring ¾” x 4”, for the inside of the card:

For the rest of the card front, you will need:

1. Use the Pool Party So Very Vellum cardstock and cut into 2 ½” x 2 ½” squares.

2. Using the Silver Metallic Thread, wrap around your four fingers, four times.

3. Stamp the sentiment from Timeless Tulips in Calypso Coral ink on Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the 1” Circle Punch. Use the 1 3/8” Scallop Circle Punch to punch out a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock, this will be layered under the sentiment.

4. For the leaves and lily pad, first ink the outline stamp in Versamark ink, then in Garden Green ink, and stamp on Whisper White cardstock. Sprinkle Clear Emboss Powder and set with your heat tool (don’t forget to use your Embossing Buddy on the cardstock first!). I colored these in with the Light Call Me Clover Stampin’ Blends and along one side of the leaves, I used the Dark Call Me Clover Stampin’ Blends to give a little shading. These are then cut out with the coordinating dies.

5. For the large lily, first use your Embossing Buddy on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the outline stamp in Versamark ink and then Calypso Coral ink, sprinkle with Clear Emboss Powder, and set with your heat tool. I first started coloring the inner part of the flower petals with Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends, then Light Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends, and then finally Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends, not just the tip of the petals, but over the whole petal. 

To assemble the lily, leaves, lily pad, and Silver Metallic Thread, I placed some adhesive on the back of the lily and when I placed the metallic thread, I made sure it was coming out from the top of the lily only. I then used glue dots to adhere the leaves and placed a couple more glue dots to adhere the lily pad to the lily:

I used some adhesive along the lily pad and leaves to adhere to the vellum square, positioned towards the bottom of the vellum square:

I used adhesive on the back of the vellum square, behind the lily, and then adhered to the middle of the DSP base layer. The layered sentiment is adhered with a dimensional onto the DSP base layer:

This completed piece is adhered to a Coastal Cabana cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼” and adhere the ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the bottom:

Isn’t this a super cute “all occasions” card?? I left the inside sentiment out so that I now will have six cards readily available to send out! Yes, the lily, leaves, and lily pad are a little time consuming because of the coloring and die cutting, but honestly, if you have a couple hours just to sit down and let your creativity flow, or even break it up over a few days, this is a great way to use up all these awesome products and send out beautiful cards for any occasion or reason!

Peaceful Poppies Tri-Fold Shaker Card!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which features the Peaceful Poppies Suite for this super fun tri-fold shaker card! So, I’ve been thinking lately that it’s time to change things up and do a fun fold card, but I hadn’t quite figured out what one I really wanted to share with you. Well, the other day I saw a YouTube video from Jennifer McGuire and I loved it! So, this layout is a CASE (copy and share everything or copy and selectively edit) from her video, which I will provide a link to that video at the end of this post, that I used with the Peaceful Poppies Suite! Sometimes the struggle with making a shaker card can be much, I personally have issues with the foam strips and lining the “frame” up, so if you are like me or maybe you just want to try making a shaker card, this card is a great alternative!

In Jennifer’s video, she actually stamps a scenery, but I thought this design from the Peaceful Poppies DSP would work perfectly for the inside fold. Since this will be a full 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece, I first cut the sheet of DSP at 4 ¼” and then lined the bottom up at 5 ½” to cut. I lined the second piece of DSP the same, which left me with a small 1” x 4 ¼” strip of the DSP left over:

You will need two card base layers in Basic Black cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”(one sheet of cardstock). After burnishing the score line with your bone folder, you will use one of the card bases with the front opening to your right (or the card fold on the right side) and adhere the DSP with liquid glue:

To make the frames, cut a full sheet of Basic Black cardstock into four 4 ¼” x 5 ½” pieces. From the Stitched Rectangle Dies, use the second largest layering die to cut out. I found it helpful to use my grid paper to help line up the die so that it was even and I also used some craft tape to keep the die in place:

Now you will take the other card base and use the die to cut out a frame from the cardstock. You can still use your grid paper to make sure that it is lined up evenly and use craft tape to keep the die in place:

You will now adhere three of the frame layers together using liquid glue, I used my fingers to “flatten out” the layers to make sure they are flat and evenly adhered together:

Cut two pieces of the Window Sheets at 4 3/16” and 5 7/16”, or the small line right before 4 ¼” and 5 ½” on your trimmer, so they are just slightly smaller than 4 ¼” x 5 ½”:

On the card base with the cut out frame, use Tear & Tape on the front, along each side, remove the backing, and lay one of the Window Sheets on top of the adhesive:

Use another layer of Tear & Tape on top of that same Window Sheet, remove the backing, and place the triple layer frame on top:

Use your Embossing Buddy on the Window Sheet to remove any static and pour some of the Peaceful Poppies Sequins onto the Window Sheet. I place four drops of the Fine Tip Glue Pen on the Window Sheet and then put a sequin on each drop. You will then want to set this aside to allow the glue to dry:

Take the fourth (or left over) cut out frame and place Tear & Tape on the backside, along each side, remove the backing, and place the second Window Sheet on the adhesive, use your Embossing Buddy again to remove any static. On the card base frame, you will want to use another layer of Tear & Tape along each side, remove the backing, and place the top frame layer on top. This will now give you a “shaker card” without the foam strip:

Now you will want to adhere the two back layers of the base cards together with liquid glue, making sure that the DSP front closes to the left and the shaker front closes to the right:

This is what your card folded closed should look like:

For the card front, I stamped the sentiment in Poppy Parade ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the coordinating die. I also cut out four small leaves in Old Olive cardstock and four flower buds, two in Poppy Parade and Blackberry Bliss cardstock, using glue dots to adhere to the leaves:

I used liquid glue to adhere the sentiment and flower buds along the bottom corner, this way you will not see any adhesive on the window sheet:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Poppy Parade ink, the flower stamp along the bottom in Memento ink (you will do this twice to fill in along the bottom), and color in the flowers with Dark Poppy Parade and Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends:

Isn’t this a super cute and fun card?? If you would like to see Jennifer McGuire’s video, click here. The whole purpose of creating all these frames is so that it gives you that space you need for the sequins to move around between the window sheets. Don’t throw away those inside pieces from the die cuts! Those will make perfect framing layers for future cards. Now, here is some “words of wisdom” that I can pass along to you before you set out to make this card: using the largest layering die may look easier, but it’s not best to use that die, but the second largest die instead. When you use the largest die, there is only an 1/8” of an inch along each side and the Tear & Tape is ¼”, which is too wide, and you definitely need to use Tear & Tape for the Window Sheet pieces, Multipurpose Glue will be too messy and the Fine Tip Glue Pen glue will not adhere Window Sheets together. I personally have some 1/8” tape (you can find this at a big box craft store) but I’m not going to make a card that you may not have Stampin’ Up! products on hand for. I discovered this mistake after I started using the largest layering Stitched Rectangle Die, so I put those pieces aside and started over with the second largest Stitched Rectangle Die. I did go back and finish that card, so here are the two side by side:

Sweet Little Ladybug Thank You card!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and sweet card featuring the Little Ladybug stamp set and coordinating Ladybug Dies! So, how many of you have a stamp set that you just fell in love with, but when you started using it, you fell out of love? Yeah, that’s how I am with the Bokeh Dots stamp set, lol! I ordered this stamp set when it first came out, but no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t seem to like what I was trying to use it for or with. As I was sitting at my desk with the Little Ladybug stamp set in my hand and looking at my background stamps for ideas, I thought why not try the Bokeh Dots stamp set? Then I started thinking of ideas, layouts, and colors, and before I know it, I had this super cute thank you card! 

The base layer is Crumb Cake cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and is embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. Before I embossed the cardstock, I used my Crumb Cake ink pad and “dragged” it across the embossing folder, leaving some areas lighter or darker (less or more ink) to give the embossed cardstock a little more depth:

For the front of the card, you will need:

1. Stamp just to top of the flower in Memento ink on Whisper White cardstock three times and cut out with the coordinating die. You will use a Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends to color in the middle and then use a little Wink of Stella.

2. On Whisper White cardstock, stamp the Bokeh Dots stamp in Balmy Blue ink and cut out with the fourth largest layering Stitched Rectangle Die. Use the stitched loop die, starting from the upper left corner.

3. Stamp the sentiment on Whisper White cardstock in Memento ink and cut out using the 1 3/8” Scallop Circle Punch. Use the 1 ½” Circle Punch to cut out a piece in Calypso Coral cardstock, this will be layered under the sentiment.

4. Stamp the flying ladybug on Whisper White cardstock in Memento ink, color the inner edge of the wings and body with Light Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends and then color in the rest with Light Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends, fill in the backside with just Light Calypso Coral and the face with the Ivory Stampin’ Blends. This is cut out with the coordinating die and use a bit of Wink of Stella on the wings.


I first adhered the stitched rectangle layer on the base layer, making sure it was more towards the top, and then adhered the ladybug at the end of the stitched loop:

Adhere the first flower top in the middle of the stitched layer and then adhere the two other flower tops on each side with dimensionals. The sentiment is adhered on top of the embossed base layer and stitched layer:

This completed piece is adhered to a Calypso Coral cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment and ladybug in Memento ink, and color the ladybug in the same way as you did the ladybug on the front of the card:

I just thought this card turned out so stinking cute! I originally stamped the Bokeh Dots in Daffodil Delight ink, but I really didn’t like how that looked, so then I tried it in Balmy Blue and loved it! I think I realized that the issue I have with Bokeh Dots, is not the stamps themselves, but my point of view and what I like/don’t like and using the Stitched Rectangle Dies helped with that. It just goes to show you, take out those unused and neglected stamp sets every so often and see if you can create something fun! Maybe now you may have other products that will pair nicely with them! lol

Q-tip coloring with Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which features Q-tip coloring with the Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper! Have you ever colored using a Q-tip? This is a fun and easy way to color using your ink pads and the end of a Q-tip! The Flowering Foils DSP is nice and smooth, so applying the ink is very easy and dries quickly. Since there are a few smaller, detailed pieces on this DSP, I thought using a Q-tip would be a great way to color it in and if you are just starting your crafting journey and don’t have a lot of supplies or are limited on space, this would be a fun technique to show you!

The base layer is this design from the DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. I first colored in all the leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink, the flower centers with Pineapple Punch ink, and Flirty Flamingo ink on different flower petals:

I then colored in the flowers with Petal Pink in and the flower buds with Grapefruit Grove ink:

I went back over the flower centers with Pineapple Punch ink and blended the Petal Pink ink on the petals a little more. I then filled in the background with a Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends to really make the colors pop:

For the rest of the card front, you will need:

1. 6 ½” piece of Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon.

2. Enough Braided Linen Trim to tie into a bow.

3. One of the 5mm (large) Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

4. Stamp the sentiment on Whisper White cardstock in Gray Granite ink and punch out with the Tailored Tag Punch. Punch another piece out of Silver Foil Sheet and cut in half, this will be layered under the sentiment.

Use liquid glue to adhere the foil punch piece under the sentiment, this will give you time to move the piece before it sets and dries. Fold the organdy ribbon in half and use a glue dot to keep it in place. Tie the linen trim into a bow, use a glue dot to adhere to the organdy ribbon, and place the Champagne Rhinestone on the middle of the bow:

Use another glue dot to adhere the organdy ribbon to the base layer and dimensionals to adhere the sentiment:

This completed piece is adhered to a Gray Granite cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

I kept the inside very simple, stamped the sentiment in Gray Granite ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

Don’t you just love this Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper? You can earn it for free, now thru March 31st (or while supplies last), with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration! While this DSP is beautiful on its own, coloring it just takes it a step up for your cards and crafts! Now, I know I should have also colored in the background of this DSP using a Q-tip, but I really wanted to see how well Stampin’ Blends colored with this paper and to really “saturate” the background with color so the flowers stand out.
