Stampin’ Up! NEW Pretty Pop-Up Dies

Yesterday was a bit of a banner day… a Stampin’ Up! shipment was delivered with new goodies. 😁 I couldn’t w-a-i-t to play, but had to as we had choir practice last night with a concert next weekend. But… first thing this morning I got busy and played with these dies first. And here’s what I created.

Pretty Pop-Up Dies.1

What these dies do is create an impression that can be ‘pushed up’ from behind to give the image dimension. I chose to color some of those with various Stampin’ Blends: Cajun Craze for the large butterfly, Granny Apple Green (should have used the Parakeet Party but forgot!), and the new Orchid Oasis. I used a Black Stampin’ Write Marker to color the butterfly body. I added a single Classic Matte Dot for the head of the large butterfly and three smallest of the Basic Rhinestone Jewels for flower centers. I used the fine tip of the Black Stampin’ Write Marker to add dots for some of the flowers. But I AM ahead of myself…

Steps:

  • On a 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 square of Soft Succulent, place the appropriate die (I used the oval from the Pretty Pop-Ups Dies) in the center & run it through the Cut & Emboss machine.
  • With the largest square from the fabulously Stylish Shapes Dies, run the panel through again so that it is 3 x 3 with a stitched border.
  • From the back of the panel, push up the flowers & butterflies to raise them. Color as desired.
  • Adhere the square to a Basic White piece cut 3 14 x 3 14 and set aside.
  • Prepare the card base: Soft Succulent 5 1/2 x 6 3/8, scored at 4 1/4.
  • Cut 2 panels of Basic White (5 1/4 x 2) & run through the Cut & Emboss machine with the Stitched Greenery Die. Adhere to the card front and the small panel inside, both with liquid glue.
  • Close the card and center the Pop-Ups piece, with glue only on the left side of the square.
  • Add a small Linen Thread bow with a glue dot.
Pretty Pop-Ups Dies.2

For the inside… Cut a panel of Basic White 4 x 5 1/4. Run the panel through the Cut & emboss machine with some of the small flower dies and a butterfly from the Pretty Pop-Ups Dies. Color the butterfly lightly with Soft , adding the body with Black Stampin’ Write Marker, then antennae. Stamp the sentiment in Soft Succulent ink using another NEW PRODUCT – Charming Sentiments stamp set. (This has a coordinating die set but I did not use it for this project.). Adhere the panel to the inside of the card & d-o-n-e!

Pretty Pop-Ups Dies.3

I used the same Stitched Greenery Die to create the impression on the envelope flap – and that was it. The card is soft and gentle and precious. I love how it turned out! Can’t wait to try out some of the other dies in this set 👍 Lovely, Lovely.

This and other stamps & dies could be a part of a Starter Kit for you. And now is the perfect time to join – my team of course! Here’s more scoop on the Starter Kit for joining.

Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! There are some super projects for you today – so be sure to follow along to see what everyone has created.

And here is our color challenge for this week.

And here’s the card I created for the challenge.

Bottled Happiness.1

This is as wonderful NEW bundle, the Bottled of Happiness which has a Vintage Bottle Punch that coordinates with it. That’s the light green bottle (Pool Party ink) in the photo that uses the punch. :O) I’ve used the Wisteria Dies (NEW BUNDLE: Wisteria Wishes bundle) for the leaves, to add that ‘this is outside’ idea :O) The sentiment (on Vellum) is stamped in Calypso Coral ink from the Nature’s Prints stamp set (again – NEW) and die cut with one of the Circle Dies. I stamped the floral stamp in Highland Heather ink from the Bottled Happiness stamp set. Now, let me give you some details…

To begin, I stamped the two-step bottle in Pool Party ink using the Bottled Happiness stamp set. I then punched that image with the Vintage Bottle Punch and put dimensionals on the back, but did not remove the covers. I decided exactly where I wanted the bottle on the Basic White panel (3 1/2 x 5), removed the punched bottle and stamped with the Bottled Happiness stamp in Highland Heather ink. I then stamped the squatty bottle in Evening Evergreen ink and the cork in Crumb Cake ink. Now adhere the Pool Party bottle.

I wanted this to look as though the bottles were outside, so I die cut leaves/ branches using the Wisteria Dies in both Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent card stocks. I also stamped directly on the Basic White panel, the same leaf image using the Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink, then stamped again on a scrap of Basic White, die cut this image with the Wisteria Dies, and added Wink of Stella to several of the leaves. You can see the added sparkle in the photo below.

Bottled Happiness.2

The Basic White die cut leaves/ branch were adhered with mini dimensionals, then the Soft Succulent die cut leaves/ branches were added on that with liquid glue. Additional leaves/ branches die cut (Wisteria Dies) from Evening Evergreen card stock were adhered directly to the panel with liquid glue.

For the sentiment, I stamped on Vellum in Calypso Coral ink using the Nature’s Prints stamp set (love this font & sentiment – it’s super friendly). Since ink takes a bit of time to dry on Vellum, I used my Heat Tool to set the ink quickly. I die cut this with the Layering Circles Dies and adhered with Stampin ‘ Seal so it didn’t show.

The Basic White Panel was added to a piece of Pretty Prints DSP, NEW(4 x 5 1/4) and adhered directly to the Calypso Coral card base (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2).

Bottled Happiness.3

For the inside, I used a Blending Brush to add some color to the Basic White panel (4 x 5 1/4) all around the edges and across the top most especially. I kept it soft. I stamped the sentiment from Bottled Happiness stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink. The panel was adhered to the inside of the card with liquid glue and the card was done!

Bottled Happiness.4

For the envelope, I added more Calypso Coral card stock to the flap and trimmed it to fit. It probably should have been embossed, but I didn’t. For the front, I stamped the word Cheer from the Bottled Happiness stamp set by taping off the upper portion of the sentiment, inking the stamp in Evening Evergreen ink, removing the tape and stamping it on the envelope front – and did this three times.

So the color combination is not something I would normally do – but I really like how it all came together – outside my comfort zone and all that. It is good to s-t-r-e-t-c-h ourselves. And I really am liking all the new stamp sets / dies that I used. It’s fun to coordinate and mix.

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden and Honeybee Home for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

HELLOOOO! Exciting things happening today at Stampin’ Up! – FREE SHIPPING ON ORDERS OF $75 & UP. Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop… the sketch challenge is as you see it to the right ~ butterflies or bugs, and chose bees from the Honeybee Home bundle. You can see my card below.

Daisy Garden & Honeybee Home.1

I used the Daisy Garden stamp set, stamped in Night of Navy ink on a Basic White panel. The Night of Navy ink makes the flowers look elegant, but the Flowers for Every Garden Ribbon ‘countryfies’ it a bit. I colored the leaves/ stems in Shaded Spruce Blends, a really nice contrast with the navy. I colored the centers of the flowers with Dark Mango Melody Blends.

The bees ~ love these bees! They are stamped in Memento Black ink on Basic White, using the Honeybee Home stamp set. I colored them in Bumblebee for the body and Balmy Blue for the wings – Stampin’ Write Markers! They were die cut with the Honeybee Blooms Dies after coloring. They were attached to the floral panel with dimensionals. The ribbon (Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Pack) was wrapped around the card front and attached in back with Stampin’ Seal+, then the panel was adhered directly to the Night of Navy card base. I took another length of the same ribbon and tied it, then slipped a glue dot behind it to hold it in place.

The sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy ink on another Basic White scrap using the Honeybee Home stamp set and fussy cut, put on dimensionals and adhered on top of the ribbon. Front … done!

Daisy Garden & Honeybee Home.2

For the inside, I used the Honeybee Home stamp set to stamp the flowers in Night of Navy ink on a Basic White panel. I again used the Bumblebee Marker to add color to the flower. I then stamped the bumblebee from Honeybee Home stamp set in Memento Black ink and colored it with Bumblebee Marker & Balmy Blue Marker – as on the front of the card. l-o-v-e! This panel was adhered to the inside of the card & bingo… card was complete.

Daisy Garden & Honeybee Home.3

For the envelope, I stamped the bumblebees in Memento ink on the flap three times and colored them as before… Bumblebee and Balmy Blue Markers. For the front of the envelope, I stamped the same floral pattern from Honey Home stamp set in Night of Navy ink and colored the flowers with Bumblebee Marker.

This card can be used for SO MANY occasions – just add a sentiment inside or write whatever you want. Versatility is the key… again… l-o-v-e…

Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered Fun Fold for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Oh my – who doesn’t love a fun fold? This was so. much. fun. And it fits all the criteria for the…

So yes, Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop AND a color challenge. I just may have used more than three :O), but who’s counting! Here’s my card:

Artfully Layered Fun Fold.1

This was inspired by several folks who have made this fun fold, but mainly my upline Mary Deatherage. What makes this fun is the ladybug is sort of ‘free’. In other words, that diagonal is movable. This fun fold is called, I think, a Corner pop-up. I used three different Designer Series Papers on this card: Artfully Composed 12 x 12, (retiring May 2), In The Wild 12 x 12 (also retiring May 2) and Waves of the Ocean (available only while supplies last). The stamp sets used were: Artfully Layered for the inside sentiment + the greens on the envelope; Artistically Inked for the front sentiment. I also used the Tropical Layers Dies, Tailor Made Tags Dies for the sentiment banner on the front, and the very, very sweet Ladybug Builder Punch. Card stocks used were: Thick Basic White for the card base, Evening Evergreen for background pieces and the ladybug, Shimmer Vellum in Pale Papaya for the wings of the ladybug, Calypso Coral and Just Jade for the leaf die cuts. I used Just Jade ink for the front sentiment and Calypso Coral ink for the inside, Old Olive ink for the front of the envelope. Embellishments: Bumblebee Trinkets, Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots and Open Weave Ribbon in Pale Papaya. This card fits perfectly in an A2 sized envelope and will definitely need extra postage due to thickness. It will also need an ‘overlay’ so the bumblebees do not poke through the envelope. 😳 So fun to do…. Can’t wait to see your creations with this fun fold :O)

Here are more pictures of this fun fold:

See in the center photo just above how some of the Artfully Composed DSP is covered by the Evening Evergreen card stock for the ‘flap’? I just didn’t like that… and made yet another card and look what I did with that bendable flap… I adhered it first and put the DSP panel on top of it. I like this MUCH better :O) The green shown is THE BRAND NEW PARAKEET PARTY in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog :O)

Card Cuts will be listed below along with a showcase of all the products used on this card. But I urge you to look on YouTube for really good directions. Try here.

The 2021–2022 Annual Catalog will be retiring soon! It’s always bittersweet to see a classic Stampin’ Up! catalog take a trip to retirement. But, we’re looking forward to all the new products on their way—and we hope you are, too!

Stock up on your favorite products before they’re gone for good! Save up to 50% on essential craft supplies. What are you waiting for? Start shopping! After all, this selection of Last Chance Products is only available while supplies last.

For all the details about this steal of a deal, keep reading… first of all, I encourage you to shop early… especially if there is something you really, really want. In the Reference column, several items have astericks, from 1-4 of them. Those with two ** indicate bundles in which the stamp set OR the dies are retiring. In other words, a portion of the bundle will not retire. Three *** indicates items those no longer available as a bundle after May 2 but available individually. The four **** are those bundles available in the IN BLOOM promotion with price differences not indicated. Does that make sense?

Please go to this to see the LAST CHANCE PRODUCT LIST. REMEMBER… products sell out f-a-s-t! so get what you want right now… Click here to go my store.

Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration

Today’s card uses mostly Waves of the Ocean 12 x 12 DSP ~ it’s stunning! Some of the prettiest paper ever.

Waves of the Ocean DSP is adhered to a layer of Pacific Point then directly to the Basic White card base. A coordinating layer of Waves of the Ocean DSP was adhered to Calypso Coral card stock, put on dimensionals & attached to the card front. Stamp the pelican on a Basic White panel in Crumb Cake ink, then with a dauber add a bit more to specific areas of the stamp to add more dimension. It’s better if using a Stamparatus to do this as it can be stamped multiple times and be in the right spot :O) Die cut the pelican using the Waves Dies, then add with dimensionals. Stamp the sentiment in Pacific Point ink on a Basic White piece and die cut with a Waves Dies banner die. I then took a length of the same DSP and clipped to make banner points, folded it back on itself and slipped it through each end of the banner and adhering it together. This was done on both ends of the banner. I put dimensionals on the left end of the banner and liquid glue on the other and adhered it over the bottom of the pelican. I added three of the Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels and the card front was done :O)

For the inside I again stamped the pelican with Crumb Cake ink on a panel of Basic White, using a sponge dauber to add more Crumb Cake in specific areas. I then took a ruler and a Balmy Blue Marker to create the fun lines around the pelican. I also used a Pacific Point Marker for more color. I adhered the panel to a Pacific Point piece and then into the card inside.

For the envelope I used the Stamparatus for this very large wave stamp and Pacific point ink to stamp the wave. Notice how the wave disappears off the bottom edge – I did this intentionally! I used a Blending Brush and a bit of Balmy Blue ink to color in the wave. It doesn’t show much in this photo, but it’s very cool!! And the card/ envelope were done!

Now let me tell you a bit about this stunning DSP AND the Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels ~ they are only available while supplies last. The Waves of Inspiration stamp set and coordinating Waves Dies will be available in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, but not the DSP or the jewels. So you know, get them now!

Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Sympathy

We had a tragic loss in our church last week when one of our staff had a heart attack. He was youngish and leaves behind a family. It was such a shock and so unexpected. The man was treasured… touching so many lives with his generous heart. I’ve used Calming Camellia for the women on the staff and want to share one of those with you today. It uses the whitewashing technique, which I have used before.

Calming Camellia Sympathy.1

I began with a card base of Soft Succulent, then cut another panel in the same color just a shade smaller. I embossed this smaller piece twice, first with the Tasteful Textile EF then ran it through again using the Timeworn 3D EF. I followed by fraying the edges by rubbing the open scissors along all four sides and also made a few tears. Next I stamped Calming Camellia in Soft Succulent ink on a piece of Soft Succulent cut squarely slightly larger than the stamp. I then used Whisper White ink pad, my oldest Blender pen and an acrylic block: ink the acrylic block by stamping it on the ink pad, then add a drop of white ink refill. Now color using the fairly dry Blender pen to color the flower. You may find it necessary to add layers of the white – I did until I was satisfied with the look. I ruffled the square as before for added texture, then adhered it to a piece of Marbled 6×6 DSP cut to the same size (this DSP is available for FREE during Sale-a-bration!)

Putting the card together…

  • Wrap a length of white Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack around the panel that was twice embossed. Adhere the twine in back with Stampin’ Seal. Now adhere that piece to the card base with liquid glue. With dimensionals on the back of the square pieces, add to the card front, centered or off-set. I tend to like mine off-set, so did that. I added a Baker’s Twine bow then some pearl Basic Jewels.
Calming Camellia Sympathy, inside

For the inside, I stamped the leaf from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Soft Succulent ink on a Basic White panel, then added the sentiment, also in the same ink color, nearby. This panel was adhered to the inside of the card & voila!

Calming Camellia Sympathy.3

For the Basic White envelope, I stamped the leaf both on the envelope flap and the front of the envelope in Soft Succulent ink. I added the scrolly stamp in Evening Evergreen ink. This finished card looks very Victorian to me & I really like it. And I think it will fit the individual for whom it is intended. Hope you like it as well.

Now, just a word about Calming Camellia – this is a hostess stamp set – so a $300 purchase is necessary to get it for FREE! The Marbelized 6×6 DSP is also FREE during Sale-a-bration. So… hint, hint. Get your buddies together to have an order valued to $300 so you too can get this set! For more info, see the ordering info below.

Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. There are all kinds of possibilities this week ~ creativity overload. May you have fun as you join the tour of projects made for this weeks hop.

As you travel around the hop today, you will notice the theme is love. How perfect this is since Valentines Day in the US is right around the corner!

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop January 27 Theme Challenge Love Love'

Isn’t this card just beautiful and serene? The Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder does all the work ~ and so easily.I inserted a piece of Very Vanilla card stock AND the heart from the Bouquet of Love Dies and ran it through the die cutting machine… and voila! the paper was embossed & die cut all in one fell swoop :O). I added that panel to the Very Vanilla card base with liquid glue, adhering the heart with dimensionals over the heart opening. I used three strands of Linen Thread to create a bow and adhered that with a glue dot. The sentiment was stamped with the Sweet Conversations stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on another piece of Very Vanilla. I die cut it with the Bouquet of Love Dies, put dimensionals on the back and added it to the card front. I added three Pearl Basic Jewels for additional charm… and the card front was done.

Love & Happiness Bundle.1

For the inside, I had fun stamping hearts on the Very Vanilla panel in Sahara Sand ink. I stamped the sentiment using the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set and Sahara Sand ink. This is such a fun stamp set – the font is a bit funky but gently flowing. I die cut three flowers using the Bouquet of Love Dies, adhered them with dabs of liquid glue and embellished these with more Pearl Basic Jewels. This panel was adhered with liquid glue to the inside of the card.

Love & Happiness.2, inside

For the envelope, I took a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and embossed it with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder, adhered it to the flap with liquid glue and trimmed to fit. On the front I randomly stamped more of the hearts from the Sweet Conversations stamp set in Sahara Sand ink. This is just so elegant – love everything about it. Hope you like it as well.

Love & Happiness.3
