Words of encouragement

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a stunning card featuring the Beautiful Promenade Bundle and the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper! The Petal Promenade DSP was a must on my list from the Annual Catalog and I recently decided to purchase the coordinating stamp set and dies bundle. I was really on the fence for a while about this bundle, but after really looking at all the creativity with it and really seeing the sentiments, I caved in! lol The card I am featuring today is one that I made for someone very special to me because having a beautiful card to express your love and support during a difficult time can mean the world to them.

The card base is Thick Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_2c9a

The base layer is from the Petal Promenade DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_2c9d

For the card front, you will need enough Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon to go around the DSP, Gold Metallic Pearls, use Gold Foil Sheets to cut out the detailed thinlit from the Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies, and stamp the sentiment from Beautiful Promenade stamp set in Versamark and emboss in Gold Emboss Powder on Petal Pink cardstock, then cutting out with the circle thinlit from the Stitched Labels Thinlits Dies:

To assemble the card front, adhere the ribbon around the base layer and adhere this to the card base. Next, adhere the sentiment to the foil sheet, adhere this piece to the DSP with dimensionals, and then place the Gold Metallic Pearls in the center of the flowers on the DSP:

fullsizeoutput_2ca4

The inside sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink and then heat embossed in Gold Emboss Powder. The hearts along the bottom are from the Stitched Labels Framelits, cut out from Gold Foil Sheet:

fullsizeoutput_2ca7

This is such a beautiful suite and I am so happy that I decided to purchase the stamp set and coordinating thinlits! Much to my surprise and goes to show you that I was not paying attention when I placed my order, but one of the thinlits actually cuts the DSP so you can layer on the inside of your cards! I always kick myself when I think back on how I missed out on the thinlits SU! sold so you could insert DSP to the inside of your card and even though I figured out a template that works for our envelopes, this was an even bigger win for me! I love to decorate the outside of envelopes and now I can make the inside pretty too!!

Birthday card with bling!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun birthday card with lots of bling! Rose Glimmer Paper, Rose Metallic Thread, and Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems are the perfect elements to make any card shine! This is also a great way to use any scraps of DSP that you may have or to make multiples just cut a 2” strip of DSP and then cut that down into 2” x 2” squares.

The card base is Crumb Cake cardstock, cut to 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_2c76

The base layer is this design from the Petal Promenade DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_2c79

For the card front, you will need some Petal Pink Metallic Rhinestones, Rose Metallic Thread, a 2” x 2” piece of Petal Promenade DSP, use the fourth largest scalloped square from the Layering Squares Framelits, and stamp the sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Crumb Cake ink, punching out with the Classic Label Punch. Tip-You can always use the fifth largest square from the Layering Squares Framelits instead, the glimmer paper will cover that up:

fullsizeoutput_2c7c

To assemble the front, use liquid glue to adhere the DSP to the glimmer paper and adhere the sentiment with Mini Dimensionals. I wrapped the metallic thread several times around the base layer, placing some adhesive on the back to keep the ends in place:

fullsizeoutput_2c7ffullsizeoutput_2c82

The base layer is adhered to the card base, the layered squares are adhered with dimensionals, and then I added one of each shape of the rhinestone gems:

fullsizeoutput_2c85

Quick and easy card with Happy Birthday Thinlits

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a quick and easy birthday card made with the Happy Birthday Thinlits! This card is quick and easy to make, whether you are pressed for time and need to make a card or are replenishing your birthday card stock! After realizing that I really only have two birthday stamp sets (that are current), it was time to take a look at what I wanted to purchase. I really wanted a stamp set that was versatile, had some fun sentiments, and was easy to create with. After what seemed like hours of agonizing search (total exaggeration, but when you are trying to decide and narrow sets down it does seem like it, lol), I decided on Happy Birthday Gorgeous, the coordinating Happy Birthday Thinlit, and Birthday Backgrounds. If you missed this stamp set, like I did, you should really take a second look! I’ve made several cards with this set now and I just love it! Since I already have the Balloon Bouquet and Classic Label punches, that just made this stamp set even better in my book because the punches also coordinate with the stamp set. More bang for your buck, right??

When creating today’s card, I decided to use the Petal Promenade DSP because of all the beautiful flowers and when you combine this with the Tufted Dynamic TIEF, and rose-colored bling, you get a stunning card!!

The card base is Petal Pink cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. The base layer is Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Tufted Dynamic TIEF:

fullsizeoutput_2c6a

For the front of the card, I cut a piece of the Petal Promenade DSP at 2” x 4”, some Rose Metallic Thread, and used the Happy Birthday Thinlit to cut out of the Rose Glimmer Paper. TIP-I cut a piece of the Sizzix Adhesive sheet and adhered to the back of the glimmer paper before cutting out with the thinlit. This makes it much easier to adhere, unless you are using dimensionals:

fullsizeoutput_2c6d

To put the front of the card together, I adhered the base layer to the card base, put some adhesive on the back of the DSP for the Rose Metallic Thread and then adhered this to the embossed base layer. I adhered the glimmer paper sentiment on top of the DSP (just peeled the backing off and voila!) and then added a couple of the Petal Pink Rhinestone Jewels:

fullsizeoutput_2c70

The inside sentiment is on a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” Very Vanilla cardstock, the sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous is stamped in Blushing Bride ink and the flower from Beautiful Promenade stamp sets are stamped in Petal Pink ink:

fullsizeoutput_2c73

So simple and easy, yet a stunning birthday card that your recipient will surely enjoy!

Amazing

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is another feature of the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper! I’ve had so much fun playing and creating with this particular design this week and today’s card has some bling!

To make this card, start with Mossy Meadow cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼” for the card base:

The base layer is the bigger flower element from this DSP design, fussy cut the middle out, round the corners with the Trio Punch, and layered underneath is a piece of Petal Pink cardstock, cut at 3” x 4 ¼”, and embossed with the Basket Weave DTIEF:

fullsizeoutput_24e0

The embossed cardstock is adhered under the DSP and I used a piece of Champagne Foil with the Amazing Thinlit, which is adhered on top of the embossed cardstock:

fullsizeoutput_24e3fullsizeoutput_24e6

I adhered a piece of Petal Pink Ribbon (from the Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack) and a piece of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to the back. This piece is then adhered with dimensionals to the card base and added some Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels for some additional bling to the center of the flower:

The inside sentiment from Special Celebrations is on a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” of Very Vanilla cardstock stamped in Mossy Meadow. The small flowers are made from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits in Petal Pink cardstock:

Thinking of you

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is another feature of the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper! Not only is this a quick and easy card, but check out the inside! This sheet of design I cut out all the trimmable pieces and was able to cut and use one for the inside! This is really easy DSP to trim down and I am not good a fussy cutting!! Lol

To make this card, start with a piece of Fresh Fig cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½” for the card base:

fullsizeoutput_24c0

I cut another piece of Fresh Fig cardstock to 4” x 5 ¼” and embossed with the Striped Scallops TIEF for the base layer:

fullsizeoutput_24c3

I used one of the smaller pieces of trimmed DSP (3” x 3”) and cut a piece of Rose Glimmer Paper to 3 ¼” x 3 ¼” to layer the DSP on top of:

fullsizeoutput_24c6

I used the sentiment from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set, which I first stamped in Versamark ink, then Fresh Fig ink, and then heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. This is then adhered with liquid glue to the glimmer paper:

fullsizeoutput_24c9fullsizeoutput_24ccfullsizeoutput_24d0

Adhere this piece to the embossed base layer and use some Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to tie a bow across the bottom:

fullsizeoutput_24d3

This piece is then adhered to the card base with dimensionals:

fullsizeoutput_24d6

For the inside, I fussy cut the edge piece of flowers around the top of the flowers and then cut it at 4”, adhering along the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock:

May all your tomorrows…

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is featuring the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper! This paper is actually part of a suite, found on pages 106-107 in the Annual Catalog, and I did not purchase the coordinating stamp set and dies. Why not? Well, even though the stamp set and dies are beautiful, I really just wanted some pretty paper! One of the things that I love about Stampin’ Up is all the product coordination and after I saw the YouTube video from Stampin’ Up about how they made this paper (you can see it here), I knew this was the perfect paper to order! Part of this beautiful design, is that two of the designs have trimmable elements, and that is what I am creating with this week!

To make this card, start with Smoky Slate cardstock for your card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_24a7

The base layer is Highland Heather cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and I used the Trio Punch to round the corners:

fullsizeoutput_24aa

This sheet of DSP has 6 small, 3 large, and one long trimmable images, I used one of the large trimmable images. The corners are rounded with the Trio Punch, the edges are “roughed up” with the edge of my scissors, and then this sentiment from Colorful Seasons stamp set is heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder:

fullsizeoutput_24ad

Next you will need a piece of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, enough Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon to make a bow, and some of the Petal Pink and Rich Razzleberry pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls:

fullsizeoutput_24b0

Place some Snail across the middle of the Highland Heather cardstock to adhere the Tulle Ribbon and then adhere the DSP to the cardstock.fullsizeoutput_24b3fullsizeoutput_24b6

This is then adhered to the card base with dimensionals, the velvet bow is adhered with glue dots. and then I used two each of the Petal Pink and Rich Razzleberry pearls for accents::

fullsizeoutput_24ba

The inside sentiment is also from the Colorful Seasons stamp set, the branch is in Mossy Meadow ink, the flowers are in Petal Pink ink, the stamen and the sentiment are in Highland Heather ink:

fullsizeoutput_24bd

Wasn’t that quick and easy?? I did take the whole sheet of DSP and cut each piece down, which was very easy to do! I love it when you have beautiful paper to creat with!

The 2018 Holiday Catalog will be live September 5th, so if you would like a complimentary copy please contact me for more details!!
