SU! Hand- Drawn Blooms and Banner Blooms Dies

Hi Everyone – it’s going to be another scorcher here on the East coast followed by rain this afternoon ~ a definite stay in the air conditioning kind of day. Our daughter lives not far and their ac is broken – a new ‘mother board’ had to be ordered. They, my friends, are miserable! And with all this isolation and stuff, they are uncomfortable coming here for the night. Doubt they slept very well last night 😞 On with the card – right?

In yesterday’s post, I shared the die cut and I decided to see what I could make of it. It isn’t my favorite, but I think it turned out well, and it’s already in the mail, so there you go…

Banner Blooms Dies

And here are the ingredients to make this lovely…

  • Gorgeous Grape cs/ ink
  • Pear Pizzazz cs (extra leaves) and marker
  • Whisper White (banner & inside panel)
  • Playing with Patterns 6×6 (die cut)
  • embellishments ~ Pearl Basic jewels, Playing with Patterns Resin Dots
  • Wink of Stella
  • Hand-Drawn Blooms stamp set
  • BAnner Blooms Dies
  • Sunflower Dies
  • Thick Whisper White cs

And here’s the how to…

Die cut the bouquet using the Banner Blooms Dies and Playing with Patterns of 6×6. Add Wink of Stella to the very small daisy like flowers, then wherever else suits you. It’s easier to do this before adhering but you can certainly add more later. Adhere very loosely with liquid glue to the Gorgeous Grape card base ~ in the banner area and a couple of places in the upper portion.. Notice in the picture the bottom half of the bouquet is not adhered at all. Stamp the banner with Memento Black ink on Whisper White and die cut using the Banner Blooms Dies. You will need to trim the excess. I wanted the extra little ‘tufts’ at the ends of the banner as I liked them :). Use a bone folder to soften the paper to make it bend and curl a bit. Adhere double dimensionals in the center only and glue dots near the ends, but allow the ends to curl up.

Now’s the time to do all the ‘trimmings’ ~ I added the Bumblebee Playing with Patterns Resin Dots and lots of tiny pearls (Pearls Basic Jewels) to the smallest flowers. I stamped one of the daisies from the Hand-Drawn Blooms stamp set in Gorgeous Grape, die cut it with the Banner Blooms Dies and covered it in Wink of Stella. This moves the ink color around a bit. I added a dimensional to it and placed it on one of the flowers that had a similar shape. I then die cut a couple of leaves from the Sunflower Dies in Pear Pizzazz. They are a similar shape to the leaves in the bouquet and gave a nice accent. Adhere this panel to a Thick Whisper White card base using dimensionals and your card front is ready!.

The inside and the envelope…

Let me say – I love this little daisy! It is just cute, cute, cute… I stamped it in Gorgeous Grape several times across the bottom of the Whisper White panel. I then added stems and leaves with a Pear Pizzazz marker.  This was adhered to a panel of Gorgeous Grape with liquid glue then added to the inside of the card, again with liquid glue.







For the envelope I covered the flap in a remnant of the Playing with Patterns 6×6 paper and added a strip of Highland Heather, then I stamped the cute daisy, again with Gorgeous Grape.

And woohoo – your card is ready! As I said earlier, this is already in the mail and I used it as an anniversary card for a very special couple.

I hope you liked today’s card. Be well, stay safe.

SU! Hand Drawn Bloom stamp set and Banner Blooms Dies

Hi All – happy Wednesday! I hope you made through all the cards as part of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop… fun wasn’t it? Now for today’s inspiration… Hand Drawn Blooms and the matching Banner Bloom Dies – both new in the SU! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. Here’s the card…

Hand Drawn Blooms stamp set
Banner Blooms Dies

This reminds me so much of a country garden ~ I really, really like it! Here are the supplies I used…

  • lots of Blends: Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade light & dar, Daffodil Delight light and dark, Highland Heather light and dark and Bronze
  • Garden Green cs and ink
  • Memento Black ink
  • Daffodil Delight cs (for the banner)
  • Whisper White cs AND Whisper White Thick cs
  • Rhinestone Basic Jewels
  • Hand Drawn
    Blooms stamp set
  • Banner Blooms Dies

And here’s the how to…

First of all, the floral bouquet is in two parts.. stamp the upper portion first (well, I did…) in Garden Green on a Whisper White panel, then stamp the bottom half. It’s a little fussy and took me practicing with a scrap but it worked. The Stamparatus is a big help with this since the top is fairly large and I stamped it a couple of times to get the shade of green I wanted and everything covered. Then the fun began with coloring the various flowers. These are such tiny flowers it doesn’t take much more than just a dot of the Blends tip for some of them.

Stamp the sentiment on a piece of Daffodil Delight with Memento Black ink, then die cut it with the Banner Blooms Dies. It will need trimming down to size as this is an ‘all in one die’! (There’s a picture later…I wanted the banner to be raised in the middle so once I did the die cut (from the Banner Blooms Dies), I doubled the dimensionals in the center and took my bone folder and gently rolled the paper. The banner tips curl up nicely. I also added a glue dot  just before the banner curls up at the end. Last but definitely not least, were the Rhinestone Basic Jewels. They added just the right sparkle to this card!

Adhere this card panel to a slightly larger Garden Green cs, put dimensionals on the back and adhere to a Thick Whisper White card base. Your card front is ready!

The inside…

Hand Drawn Blooms stamp set
Banner Blooms Dies

So simple and fun… Die cut the stems/ leaves (all one die) in Garden Green cs and adhere with liquid glue to the Whisper White panel. Stamp the daisy in Memento Black in and color with Daffodil Delight Bends and the center with the Bronze. Die cut and adhere it with liquid glue. The smaller daisy is stamped right on the panel, with Memento Black ink and colored with Daffodil Delight. Adhere to a slightly larger Garden Green panel with liquid glue and then into the Thick Whisper White. Your card is complete!

The envelope was extra fun to do…

Hand Drawn Blooms stamp set

Randomly stamp the poppy from the Hand drawn Blooms stamp set in Memento Black ink, both on the card front and the envelope flap. Color just the envelope front with both light and dark Poppy Parade Blends. TIP: When coloring an envelope, slip a large piece of scrap cs inside the envelope so the Blends do not bleed through :O) ask me how I know that! 

Your card is ready to send to someone… This could easily be a birthday or new job or graduation card – your imagination is the limit. Fun right? Now I want to share with you the whole fun die… It will be used in a future post, maybe even tomorrow :O) Who knows?

SU! So Much Happy

Hello Everyone! Today’s card is made with the brand new So Much Happy Stamp Set and matching dies… Happy Dies. You are going to love this set… it has so much to offer and I had the best time making today’s card.

And thank you for stopping by… Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop is full of fabulous cards and inspiration. Here’s mine…

So Much Happy stamp set
Happy Dies
Playing with Patterns DSP

Oh so much to share about this card… first of all, masculine or feminine, child or adult – it fits!  Next – the dies (Happy Dies) and paper (Playing With Patterns 6×6 DSP) make this card so easy. And the stamp set ( So Much Happy) allows you to make this not just a birthday card but also a graduation or a celebration of a wonderful person.

Here’s a list of supplies…

  • So Much Happy stamp set (card front and envelope front)
  • Happy Dies (card front)
  • Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP (card front)
  • Whisper White cs (background for card front and inside panel)
  • 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 ( banner on card front and envelope flap)
  • Best Year stamp set (for the inside sentiment)
  • Bumblebee cs and ink (card base and balloons on envelope)
  • Calypso Coral cs (balloon tail and inside panel)
  • Stazon black ink (sentiments)
  • Journaling pen (balloon tails on envelope)

And here’s the how to…

I started by choosing to play with the Playing With Patterns 6×6 DSP – so many fun papers in this stack! Because it already had this wonderful angle design, I followed that angle and used the die cut from the Happy Dies.  OK, what else? I played around with some other options for the balloon and star but returned to the scraps of the Playing With Patterns 6×6 DSP and came up with a match for the balloon tail as well (Calypso Coral) die cut both the balloon and star  and the tail at the same time. :o) Next I stamped the birthday sentiment. Then I wanted just one more accent… the Happy Dies have two dies that do not cut but EMBOSS your paper with a design. I used the one that looks like a broken underscore line and embossed it between the HAPPY and the birthday. Can you see it in the photo? If you put your curser on the photo and enlarge it, it’s visible and really adds a fun touch to the card. I adhered the balloon tail where I wanted it then adhered this DSP panel to Whisper White, put dimensionals on the balloon and star and attached. I wasn’t quite ready to stop – – I die cut the banner twice using the Happy Dies and the 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP (Bumblebee). I die cut it twice to add dimension to the banner. This was adhered with small dots of liquid glue. This completed panel was adhered to the Bumblebee cs with dimesnionals. Card front complete!

The inside…

Best Year stamp set

Don’t you love the different fonts in this sentiment?  And the sentiment is pretty darn neat too :o) This was stamped in Stazon black ink onto a Whisper White panel for a very crisp look – using the Best Year stamp set. This in turn, was adhered to Calypso Coral with liquid glue then attached to the card inside, again with liquid glue. Your card is done!

Now for the envelope… let’s take a peek at that envelope again…

So Much Happy stamp set
2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP

I stamped the balloons with Bumblebee ink (new In Color!) and added the tails with my black Journaling pen. The envelope flap got covered with the 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 Bumblebee paper and the card set was done!

Now let me show you one of the other dies in this Happy Dies package that allows you to emboss a pattern on the card. You may need to enlarge the photon to see it though. I stamped the sentiment, added the embossing to the left and at near the bottom of the panel and adhered it to a Calypso Coral panel before realizing it was going in the wrong direction for my card! It’s been saved, have no worries there, but look for the embossing in the photo below.

Stampin’ Up Tasteful Touches and Forever Fern

Hi Everyone ~ it’s Sat and Memorial Day weekend. Do you have big plans? It’s raining here this weekend so outdoor activities are pretty much canceled – ugh… Mon. the actual day to memorialize those who have sacrificed their lives for all of us, may be a clear day. We’ll see. At any rate, the traditional picnic is called off due to the pandemic. I’m all for being safe and staying well, so I’m ok with that, but I do miss some of the tradition in which we have participated. Thank you to all those who have served our country, sacrificed time with family and sometimes lost their lives to protect our rights. Blessings on ever one… so grateful.

Today’s card began with the flower made a couple of days ago that I never used. Here it is…

Tasteful Touches

Aren’t these gorgeous? I’m using the flower on the right today… and here’s the card…

Tasteful Touches and Forever Fern stamp sets
Forever Fern Dies

I REALLY like how this card turned out. Here are the items used to make this card:

  • Thick Whisper White cs for the base
  • Soft Suede cs and ink
  • In Good Taste DSP
  • Forever Greenery DSP
  • Forever Flourishing Dies
  • Pear Pizzazz cs and ink
  • Tasteful Touches flower
  • Organdy Striped Ribbon 5/8″
  • Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack
  • Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels
  • In Good Taste Wooden Elements

And here’s to pull it all together…

  • Stamp the flower from Tasteful Touches stamp set in Soft Suede; color with Petal Pink and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends and Fussy cut
  • Cut Soft Suede cs 2 1/8 x 5 3/8, trim diagonally so right side is 1 1/8″
  • Cut In Good Taste DSP 2 x 5 1/4, trim diagonally so right side is 1″. Adhere with liquid glue to the Soft Suede.
  • Adhere both of these to Thick Whisper White 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
  • Stamp the tall thin fern from the Forever Fern stamp set onto Pear Pizzazz cs using Pear Pizzazz ink. Cut out with the Forever Flourishing Dies and your die cutting machine
  • Find the coordinating DSP in the Forever Greenery DSP that matches the leaf die used and cut out with your die cut machine
  • Pull out coordinating elements from the In Good Taste Wooden Elements.

Further directions

  • Begin by gluing the Pear Pizzazz fern in place with liquid glue
  • Adhere the fernie type wooden element with glue dots
  • Adhere the wooden leaf element similarly
  • Adhere the leaf die cut from the Forever Greenery DSP using dimensionals
  • Make a few loops (I did three) with the braided gold trim in the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and adhere with a glue dot or two
  • Add the flower with dimensionals
  • Add the bow made using the Organdy Striped Ribbon 5/8″ with glue dots
  • Stamp your sentiment in Soft Suede ink using the Forever Fern stamps
  • Embellish using the wonderful Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels. They tie the pink in the DSP, the Petal Pink in the flower and the Soft Suede together so wonderfully

Here’s the card again – what do you think?

Stampin’ Up! AMY’S INKIN’ KREW Blog Hop

The theme for this month’s Blog Hop is all about “For the boys/ men…” and we could interpret that any way we wanted. Hubby’s birthday is in June and he is a sailing man. The new blue in the 2020-2021 In Colors for Stampin’ Up! is titled Misty Midnight. I love that! And it’s perfect to work with for a man – my man. And the Sailing Home carrying over stamp set is a perfect match in many ways. I also used the NEW Tasteful Labels Dies (eek! – fun!) and the Many Mates stamp set (love this too!)

You may be joining me today from the talented Julie Johnston. Thanks for following the blog hop!

The card is a take-off of a Gate Fold card – modified version. I actually followed the really good directions of my upline Mary Deatherage, who created a card using this fun fold. It’s easy!

For the boys/ men #1
  • Cut your card base 4 1/4 x 11, score at 5 1/2. I used Whisper White
  • Cut another piece of card stock (I used Night of Navy 5 1/4 x 8, score at 2″ and 6″
  • Mark the center of each of the short panels( 2 5/8). Cut to the center of each short panel (or gates) creating a V – see photo… I apologize… should have taken a photo PRIOR to completing the card – grrr
For the boys/ men #2
  • Cut a piece of  In Good Taste DSP 1 7/8 x 5 (2 of these) Follow the same procedure for cutting.  Adhere DSP panels to the card front “gates” using liquid glue. (This DSP is available to customers June 3!)
  • Cut apiece of the 2020-2021 6 x 6 DSP  Misty Midnight 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 and adhere using liquid glue to the inside of the Night of Navy panel (This DSP is available to customers June 3!)
  • Using the Stitched so Sweetly Dies, cut a panel for the sentiment and the sailboat. The sentiment, sailboat and birds are from Sailing Home stamp set.  I used Night of Navy ink. Adhere to the inside front panel with liquid glue.
  • Adhere this modified gate-fold to your card base with liquid glue.
  • Cut a strip 1 x 10 for the belly band. I used the new 2020-2021 IN COLOR Bumblebee. Don’t you love that name? It is so descriptive.
  • Cut another panel using a smaller Stitched So Sweetly Dies and Bumblebee card stock. Adhere to the belly band with dimensionals.
  • * Using two of the Tasteful Labels Dies (available to customers June 3!), cut panels, one in Night of Navy and one in Whisper White. Adhere with liquid glue to the Bumblebee diecut.
  • Stamp your sentiment using the new Many Mates stamp set. I added three of the new 2020-2021 In Color Enamel Dots. They are so cute! (Both of these are also available to customers June 3)

The front of your card is complete! Yay! And it’s gorgeous already. 😏 Now for the inside…

For the boys/ men… #3
  • Cut a piece of Night of Navy 5 3/8 x 4 1/8. Adhere using liquid glue.
  • Cut a Whisper White 5 x 3 7/8. Stamp with your sentiment and the anchor from the Sailing Home stamp set and Night of Navy ink. Adhere using liquid glue. Done!

Remember your envelope…Cover the envelope flap with the new 2020-2021 6 x 6 In Color DSP, adhering with liquid glue. Trim. Done, done, done…

For the boys/ men #









This was such a fun card to do. It looks complicated but isn’t at all and is just stunning.

Dawn Olchefske. Thank you Dawn for sharing.

The card cuts are just a bit different and you can see it so clearly in this first photo…

Bonanza Buddies #1
  • Bermuda Bay cs 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4. Remove 1″ from each FRONT SIDE

  • Fussy cut – yes, I did say fussy cut… a toucan and balloons from another of the Birthday Bonanza DSP. This is such fun paper!!!
  • Attach a Grapefruit Grove  twine from the Nature’s Twine set then adhere the tag to the card front with dimensionals. Attach the fussy cut toucan with balloons with liquid glue and dimensionals on the far right of the Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay balloons.

For the inside…

Bonanza Buddies #2

Stampin’ Up! More… Morning Magnolia Memories and More Card Pack

Todays post brings a few more cards made with the Morning Magnolia Memories and More Card Pack. I took yesterday off and didn’t post. Could you tell? 😏 What a strange Palm Sunday it was! Our church is doing its worship services by Livestreaming and that’s good, just feels odd. All this social distancing… some people do it, others not so much. Ah sigh… guess we have to give this at least another month. I’m doing my best, so is hubby. We are very upbeat and positive people and that’s good, ‘cuz we don’t get ‘down in the dumps’ much. I just feel for those folks who panic easily. It’s helpful for everyones psyche when there is a sense of order to our lives ~ and well, we don’t have that right now. I mean, sometimes I forget what day of the week it is!!! ‘Nuf… on with the cards. I only made three this time…. and I tried just using the elements from the card pack. I was successful to a point.

Card #1…

  • Whisper White cardstock behind the printed vellum, Early Espresso behind the ‘card’ and placed on dimensionals.
  • The inside uses the same cardstocks and sticky embellishments from the card pack.
  • This could be a nice masculine card!
Morning Magnolia Memories and More Card Pack card #1
card #1 inside










Card #2…

  • Nothing behind the printed vellum this time and I kind of like it with this particular card. Petal pink is behind the ‘card’ and both are wrapped with the Petal Pink gold edged ribbon from the SAB catalogue, then raised on dimensionals.
  • The inside is simple but elegant to me… Petal Pink and Whisper White cardstocks, two strands separated from the Flax 5/8″ ribbon tied in a bow and the sentiment is from Parisian Beauty stamp set, also from the SAB catalogue.
Morning Magnolia Memories and More Card Pack card #2
inside card #2










Card #3…

  • Vellum on one of the larger cards from the pack, the magnolia is on a dimensional and then a small linen thread ribbon adhered with a glue dot.
  • The inside is Mint Macaron and Whisper White cardstock with one of the sticky embellishments in the card pack.
Morning Magnolia Memories and More Card Pack card #3
inside card #3










That’s it folks – what do you think? I’m rather pleased with these and hope you like them too. Although I have a very few of the cards and envelopes left, tomorrow we’ll have something else to share. If you are interested in purchasing the Morning Magnolia Memories and More Card Pack (item # 149554)and the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories and More Cards and Envelopes (item #149487), check them out in the 2019-20 Catalogue on page 171.

There are 50 double sided cards in the card pack – two different sizes, some vellum sheets included and 4 sticker sheets with some really fun and beautiful options for creating your own ideas; and 20 large specialty cards and envelopes in the other pack.
