Stampin’ Up Wisteria Wishes Birthday

Wow – Dec 1 was amazing, wasn’t it? All the goodies Stampin’ Up is offering in the LAST CHANCE SALE and the CLEARANCE RACK – it’s hard to say ‘no’. PLUS there is the ability to order the Fitting Florets Collection and well – lots going on in the Stampin’ Up! world.

So here I am with a different kind of card for you… I’m working with the Wisteria Wishes stamp set and coordinating Wisteria Dies. I’ve also included some stampin and a bit of the 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper. The color I’m using is Orchid Oasis, cuz, wisteria is often purple, right? And glimmer paper is well, just sparkly & fun. I’ve also done some stamping. Let’s take a look.

Stampin' Up! Wisteria Wishes Birthday.1

The card base is Thick Basic White. The next layer is the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer Paper in Orchid Oasis. The next layer is Basic White that I ran through the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. Doesn’t it remind you of a brick wall? It does to me! Then I did some stamping and die cutting.

Stamping: In the background I hope you see the wisteria from Wisteria Wishes stamp set, in a different shade than the glimmer paper~ that’s a two-step stamp: first the background stamped in Highland Heather ink, then the detail stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink, then die cut with the Wisteria Dies. I also stamped the wisteria leaves/branch from Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink and used a sponge dauber to add some depth with Old Olive ink. I did some additional die cutting with the Wisteria Dies: leaves/branch from Pear Pizzazz card stock & three more wisteria, this time from the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer Paper in Orchid Oasis. Because the Glimmer paper is graduated in shade, it provides a really nice variance/ difference in each of those particular die cuts. The leaves/ branch die cuts are adhered with liquid glue; the stamped wisteria are adhered with dimensionals; the glimmer paper wisteria are added with liquid glue. I love how many of the leaves are loose to create depth ands the glimmer paper wisteria are free-flowing at the ends – also to create depth. The sentiment banner is stamped in Highland Heather ink on a Basic White strip using the Happiness Abounds stamp set. I trimmed the end into a ‘banner tip’ then added it to the card front with dimenstionals. Final step… the three 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots in Orchid Oasis.

Stampin' Up! Wisteria Wishes Birthday.2

For the inside, I chose another branch die cut from the Wisteria Dies and Pear Pizzazz card stock, slightly trimmed, to adhere around the stamped Highland Heather ink sentiment from Happiness Abounds stamp set. At the bottom is a scrap of the leftover 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper in Orchid Oasis.

Stampin' Up! Wisteria Wishes Birthday.3

For the envelope… a 2 1/4 x 6 strip of the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP for the envelope flap, trimmed to fit. The sentiment is from Happiness Abounds and stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink. I made a bit of a ‘bluber’ (mistake) when I stamped, so used the Gorgeous Grape Marker to create this fun design around it to look like a postage stamp 🥴 And it’s ready for mailing! What do you think? Do you like?

Stampin’ Up! Fabulous Frames & By the Bay Specialty 6×6 DSP

Good Monday Morning! Oh my goodness… family was here for a couple of days and it was so so incredibly good! Lots of work keeping up with all the dirty dishes and constantly making food, but so worth it. Grateful, thankful, feeling very blessed.

Today’s card uses more of the Fabulous Frames Dies & By the Bay 6×6 Specialty DSP – and in a more feminine birthday card. The colors are so perfect for this young person.

Stampin' Up! Fabulous Frames Dies & By the Bay Sp 6x6 DSP.Jodi

The sentiment used the Let’s Celebrate embossing folder again, and this time I not only cut it down, but cut it apart :O) I die cut two frames using the Fabulous Frames Dies, one in Basic White and another in Pool Party, which is a coordinating color to the paper. I wanted the outside frame in the Basic White and the inner portion in Pool Party – now I have extra to play with another day . The card has a layer of the By the Bay Specialty 6×6 DSP on the Night of Navy card base, then the Fabulous Frame Die cut was adhered with liquid glue. The Pool Party panel is on dimensionals; the Happy Birthday is adhered with liquid glue, and the Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems were added ~ and the card front is really complete.

Stampin' Up! Fabulous Frames & By the Bay 6x6bSpecialty DSP.Jodi

For the inside, a b it of a strip of the By the Bay 6×6 Specialty DSP along the edge of the Basic White panel, which was then adhered to the inside of the Night of Navy card base. I left the inside blank ‘cuz I have lots of things to say to her. ❤️

Stampin' Up! Fabulous Frames Dies & By the Bay 6x6 Specialty DSP.Jodi

For the envelope, there was a short panel of the By the Bay 6×6 Specialty DSP remaining, so I used it on the front of the envelope. I took another piece of Pool Party card stock and embossed it with the Let’s Celebrate embossing folder and adhered that to the flap. Durn – forgot to take a photo!

At any rate – this By the BaySpecialty DSP is stunning and gorgeous and has a beachy feel to it – so versatile. It will be available in the Jan-Apr 2023 Annual Catalog.

Stampin’ Up! Fitting Florets Collection, Birthday Fun Fold

It’s Friday and I’m off to a Stampin’ Up! Convention ~ headed to Jacksonville, FL. Yes, it should be raining but it may clear by mid day 😀 I’m taking a rain coat… Today’s card uses many of the items in the Fitting Florets Collection: Framed Florets and the coordinating Framed Florets Dies (notice how Stampin’ Up! ‘heard’ our pleas to use same titles for coordinating dies!), the Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls and the absolutely lovely Fitting Florets DSP. And ~ this is a fun fold.

Stampin' Up! Fitting Florets Collection. Birthday

This Fitting Florets DSP is simply gorgeous! And I especially love this particular pattern. I hated covering it with the beautiful Framed Florets Dies, but alas, it was necessary. I wanted to show off these beautiful framing dies. After die cutting in Basic White, this becomes two pieces – the center oval and the outside elaborate frame. I stamped the center oval with a sentiment from the Framed Florets in Evening Evergreen ink; adhered the outside frame to the DSP, centering it. I put dimensionals on the center oval and added it to the framed outline. I added the very pretty (and flat) Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls to highlight the sentiment. I debated and debated about adding more of the die cuts available, but I really liked the simplicity of this. The DSP was adhered to Balmy Blue card stock then to the Night of Navy A2 card front.

Stampin' Up! Fitting Florets Collection, Birthday.inside

For the inside, I took another piece of the Fitting Florets DSP and adhered it to the left side. I stamped the small leaf image and the berry ‘spray’ in Evening Evergreen ink and colored with Soft Succulent Blends for the leaves and Balmy Blue Blends for the ‘berries’. I also stamped the sentiment from the Fitting Florets stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink.

Next I created the ‘fun fold’ portion – and here’s how… cut a panel of Night of Navy card stock 4 3/4 x 8 and score at 2, 4, and 6.
Burnish well. Mark 2″ from the bottom on the right side. Trim from the top left corner to the 2″ mark on the right corner. Adhere panels from the Fitting Florets DSP cut at 1 7/8″. To get the correct angle on the DSP, prior to adhering…cut the panels 1 7/8 x 4 3/4 then lay down on table with the Night of Navy piece on top of it. With a ruler, mark the angle on the DSP. Trim 1/8″ off each bottom strip. Lay on top of card stock to see if any more trimming needs to be done, then adhere in place. This is called an Accordion Fun Fold.

Add far left panel to left side of inside of card, centering. I wanted my fun fold section to line up on the bottom with the DSP & Basic White panels. Adhere right section of the fold to the right inside panel. Here’s what it should look like looking down from the top.


Stampin' Up!
 Fitting Florets Colloection, Birthday fun fold.3

Now decorate the rest of the inside to your desire. Here’s what I did… stamp the two smaller flowers on a Basic White scrap in Evening Evergreen ink using the Framed Florets stamp set. Color both with Stamp’ Blends in Soft Succulent; die cut with Framed Florets Dies. Die cut a small leaf from Gold Foil Sheets (I used a scrap. Adhere each with liquid glue as shown.

For the envelope… more of the same Fitting Florets DSP adhered to the envelope flap & trimmed to fit. I then stamped the larger of the two small flowers in Evening Evergreen ink and this time colored them with Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends. It matches the flowers in the DSP! I then stamped the leaves in Evening Evergrren ink and colored with Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends. They too, match the DSP 😊

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Fun Fold w/ Framed Florets Bundle

Good Saturday morning.I’ve created a fun fold birthday card for you today using the new Framed Florets Bundle. The card cuts will be listed as I go along and then again at the bottom of this post so you too, can create this fun fold.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Bundle & Fun Fold.1

Isn’t this paper (DSP) just beautiful? I guess it’s a bit tricky to see much of it here :0] You’ll have to take my word for it – unless of course you decide you want to get it now… in which case, keep reading and I’ll tell you how you can. For now, a couple more photos to see this card and how it stands to really it off.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Bundle Fun Fold.2
Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Bundle Fun Fold.3

The photo to the left shows more of this particular DSP (Fitting Florets 12 x 12 DSP) and the above photo shows how this stands to show off the fun fold.

This is a two part card: the card base and the fun fold adhered together. The card base is Night of Navy 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and has a single strip of Fitting Florets DSP adhered to either side (3/4 x 5 1/4). The fun fold portion is also Night of Navy 8 x 5 1/2 scored on the long side at 1 1/2, 2 3/4, 5 1/4 and 6 1/2. Burnish the folds: mountain, valley, valley, mountain. Add Fitting Florets DSP to each valley fold and the far right mountain fold in this order: 1 x 5 1/4, 1 x 5 1/4 and finally 1 1/4 x 5 1/4. See photo as a guide. The center message panel is Basic White 2 1/4 x 5 1/4.

The front panel is Night of Navy 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 and is adhered to the far left section of the fun fold, but centered when the card is closed – see 1st photo! Adhered to that is Balmy Blue 3 1/4 x 5 1/4. Adhered to that is the Basic White decorated panel. Stamp & decorate prior to adhering it!

To decorate this panel: Stamp the sentiment from Framed Florets stamp set in Night of Navy ink at the upper portion of the Basic White front panel; Stamp the leaf spray , also from Framed Florets stamp set, in Memento Black ink and color with Light Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends. Stamp the floral bouquet from Framed Florets stamp set on a separate panel of Basic White, color with Stampin’ Blends: Polished Pink (both Light & Dark Blends), Soft Succulent (both Light & Dark), & Petal Pink; die cut with Framed Florets Dies. Add dimensionals to back and adhere to panel front. Create this beautiful bow with Silver-Threaded Twine that has been separated. Adhere bow with a glue dot. Add three Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls. Now add this completed panel to the front and your fun fold is done. :O) Because I was playing with the stamp set and it’s coordinating dies, I stamped the very cute berry spray from Framed Florets stamp set and colored with Polished Pink Blends then added it to the inner Basic White panel with liquid glue.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Bundle Fun Fold.4

For the envelope I added more of the same pattern from the Fitting Florets DSP pack to the flap, trimmed to fit. I then then stamped this sweet flower from the Framed Florets stamp set in Memento Black ink on the envelope front & colored it with Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends. Just as a reminder, when using Stampin’ Blends on an envelope, slip a heavy card stock in the envelope so the alcohol ink color does not go through to the other side of the envelope :O)

Such a beautiful Suite of products – this Framed Florets. It includes two stamp sets (one of which is Christmas sentiments) and this one with floral & leaf patterns + various sentiments, coordinating Framed Florets Dies, the Fitting Florets DSP and the Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls. All of these are available to demonstrators now – and will be available to customers 1 Nov – Dec 31. After that point, only the Framed Florets, & coordinating Framed Florets Dies will be available in the Jan-Jun 2023 Mini Catalog.

Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked in Gold

Hello there! It’s Saturday… and a beautiful fall day. Yesterday was a crazy hectic day – 22 folks here for a meeting & 9 stayed for lunch! And there were a couple gals who arrived an hour early and I wasn’t able to launch my post. Poor planning on my part :O( Anyway… my card today is rather modern, but I decided I really like it. Here it is – so tell me what you think.

Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked in Gold

The layout is really simple and our theme for our blog hop on Thursday was black, white + color of choice. I happen to really like black & white and kept creating with the same theme. the DSP is from the Perfectly Penciled packet and I die cut the four rectangles with the Stitched Rectangles Dies. Because DSP tends to be lighter weight, I backed each with Basic White – die cut at the same time, then adhered together with the DSP. These were all placed on dimensionals and adhered to a larger panel of Basic White. The large leaf is from Artistic Dies and die cut from Brushed Metallic in gold. I adhered this with dabs of liquid glue directly to the various rectangles. I placed a large acrylic block on top to make certain it adhered well. My card base is an A2 size of Thick Basic White with a layer of Basic Black, then the front panel. To complete the front I added the tiny gold pearls that are a retired product – sorry about that. I think what would look just as good is tiny Pearl Basic Jewels, so recommend that if you want to replicate this card. See the photo below for placement.

Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked in Gold.2

For the inside, I used the Artistically Inked stamp set to stamp the sentiment in VersaMark ink then sprinkled with gold embossing powder and heat set. I added two of the gold gems to either side of the sentiment. Again, substitute with Pearl Basic jewels.

Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked in Golod.3

For the envelope… more of the same Perfectly Penciled DSP on the envelope trimmed to fit. And the card is ready.

Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked in Gold.4

This stamp set – Artistically Inked and it’s coordinating dies Artistic Dies is in the Annual 2022-2023 Catalog – as are the Stitched Rectangle Dies AND the Perfectly Penciled DSP. Gosh, I just realized the very sweet pearls were in the Sale-a-bration catalog and are now retired :O( but Pearls Basic Jewels are a perfect substitute. The entire list of supplies is below.

Stampin’ Up! Designer Tags Dies – as Tags!

Good Monday morning ~ new day, new week, new start to something wonderful. Todays project uses the Designer Tags Dies as what else – tags… (Yesterday I made a card from them so that’s why I’m saying that ) :😁 I only made two tags, but the possibilities are endless. Let your imagination go wild!

Stampin' Up! Designer Tags Dies

The red background tag uses the Sweetest Christmas DSP as the background with one of the dies. On top of that is another die cut and I chose to leave all the pieces in it and adhered it directly to the tag base. The next layer is loose but attached with the crochet thread. I figure to put to whom the present goes on this sweet portion.

The other tag is super simple… Basic White card stock again and with the Rose Gold die cut butterfly from the Designer Tags Dies. Isn’t this butterfly the sweetest? I added two Glassy Dots Assortments in Gorgeous Grape to the butterfly. The sentiment at the bottom is from Go To Greetings stamp set. The attached ribbon is Metallic Woven Ribbon in Orchid Oasis.

Some of the products to make this card are from the Jul- Dec 2022 Annual Catalog. If you do not have a demonstrator and need catalogs please reach out to me – happy to send one to you.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday w/ Sentiments Silhouettes Dies

Good morning! Welcome to a Tuesday Blog Hop Group. If you have come from visiting Karen Finkle – welcome. Our theme challenge is ‘birthday’ and I’ve created a fun card with the Sentiments Silhouettes Dies.

Birthday w/ Sentiments Silhouettes Dies.1

The Sentiments Silhouettes Dies is for die cutting sentiments in the coordinating Charming Sentiments stamp set. But it also has dies ‘outside of that’ – hearts, stars, birthday candles and more. I highly recommend this bundle – it’s fab!!!

I took a panel of Basic White and die cut five candles with the flame and two pattern candles. After die cutting I ran this through the Stripes & Splotches 3D embossing folder, obviously using the splotches :O) It adds texture and fun to the card. I put dimensionals on the back and attached it to a panel of Hues of Happiness 12 x 12 DSP. I inserted the die cuts of the two patterned candles, attaching them with liquid glue. I love how you can continue to see the patterned paper beneath them. Next, I took that same DSP and cut two panels with the Scalloped Contours Dies to make the scalloped edge. I used the same die to create the edge for the Basic White card base as well. With the card base edged, I added the scalloped pieces from the DSP. I then added the top panel, adhering with liquid glue. The sentiment comes from Sending Smiles stamp set and was stamped in Memento Black ink. I then added several Glossy Dots Assortments in both Pool Party and Daffodil Delight ~ and the card front was complete.

Birthday w/ Sentiments Silhouettes Dies, inside

For the inside I added a panel of Pool Party to the inside of the Basic White card base, then a ‘frame’ from Scalloped Contour Dies that I found in my stash. I love how it reinforces the scallops on the card front. The sentiment is again from Sending Smiles stamp set and stamped in Memento ink. The die cuts were taken from the Hues of Happiness DSP using the Sentiment Silhouette Dies.

Birthday w/ Sentiments Silhouettes Dies.3

For the envelope… I used Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends to color one of the candles & flames die cut from the card front and added it to the envelope. Below it is a strip of the same Hues of Happiness DSP used on the card. It just really brings everything together! This card was inspired by a slimline card I saw on Pinterest, created by Tami White. Remember card cuts are at the bottom of this post.

Products to make this card are listed below. If you do not have a demonstrator and need an Annual Catalog please reach out to me (the 2022-2023 AC) – happy to send one to you.

Stampin’ Up! Double Flap Fun Fold with Abigail Rose 12 x 12

I’ve been playing with the Abigail Rose 12 x 12 DSP that coordinates with the Cottage Rose bundle (10% off when purchasing the bundle!). The bundle includes the fabulous Cottage Flowers Dies. The dies are delicate and beautiful. This DSP and fun fold were super easy to make – like two cards in one. Here’s a peek.

Double Flap Fun Fold w/ Abigail Rose.1

Here’s what it looks like in various open positions.

Double Flap Fun Fold.2
Double Flap Fun Fold.3

Isn’t this fun? Notice the beautiful floral die cut on the front of the card ~ that’s one of the coordinating dies in the Cottage Rose bundle. And the sentiment on the card front comes from the Charming Sentiment bundle and die cut with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes Dies. The flowers were all from the Cottage Rose stamp set and colored with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends. The DSP on the front is Abigail Rose 12 x 12 and colored as the stamped flowers – with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends. Early Espresso ink was used for all stamping. The final addition was three Pearl Basic Jewels.

How to:

  • Prepare the card base (crumb Cake)… 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 2 3/4 & 5 1/2: fold in half & burnish, fold the flap back on itself & burnish
  • Attach all card cuts to each section:
    • Basic White – 2 3/8 x 4 1/8 (2); 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
    • DSP (Abigail Rose) 2 1/2 x 4 (2 coordinating); 4 x 5 14
  • Create the flap fold of the card
    • Crumb Cake – 8 1/2 x 3 1/4, score at 4 1/4
    • Basic White – 3 1/8 x 4 1/8(3) use 2 for stamping and inside of the flap fold
    • DSP – 3 x 4 (This is the section I colored & is called the front of the flap fold)

  • Add this panel to a piece of Crushed Curry 3 3/8 x 4 3/8, then to the inside of the card. Finis!

For the Very Vanilla envelope…
