Stampin’ Up! In Bloom

Today’s card is made using the Sweet Symmetry DSP as the focal point, the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder in the background and a fun flower from the In Bloom bundle.

In Bloom w/ Sweet Symmetry DSP

What a fun combination of colors on this card: Calypso Coral, Pale Papaya, Basic White and just a hint of Soft Succulent.

  • Cut a piece of the Sweet Symmetry DSP with the largest Stitched So Sweetly Dies and mount on a panel of Basic White just slightly larger (3 x 4 3/16) with liquid glue. You can of course use Stampin’ Seal, but I like the ‘wiggle room’ the liquid glue provides.
  • Cut a piece of Calypso Coral (3 3/4 x 5) and run it through the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. Mount this on a panel of Basic White (3 7/8 x 5 1/8).
  • Pale Papaya is the card base (8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4). Adhere the Calypso Coral panel to this base with dimensionals. Mount the the DSP panel with dimensionals to the embossed piece.
  • Create the flower: die cut pieces using the Pierced Bloom Dies – Pale Papaya for the flower, Calypso Coral for the center, Soft Succulent for the leaves. The smaller petals are attached with a mini dimensional to the larger petals, the center is adhered with liquid glue. The leaves are adhered to the back of the large flower with dabs of liquid glue and the flower is added to the card front with dimensionals. Lots of layers on this card!
  • Stamp the sentiment from the In Bloom stamp set in Basic Gray ink on a strip of Basic White (9/16 x 3) Adhere to a strip of Calypso Coral (5/8 x 3). Add a dimensional at the end of the sent and liquid glue to the rest – slip under the flower. Trim excess length from the strip.
  • Add three Genial Gems to the card front and call the front done!
In Bloom, inside

For the inside…

  • Stamp the top flowers on a panel of Basic White (3 3/4 x 5) with stamped off once Pale Papaya ink. Stamp the lower flower without stamping off.
  • Create a template for the flower by stamping on a piece of post-it note and fussy cutting it. (I made a BIG mistake here by creating the template in card stock and you can see the leaves did not stamp up to the edge of the flower šŸ˜¦ Place the template on the stamped flowers to stamp the leaves in Soft Succulent ink. Stamp the flower centers in Calypso Coral ink.
  • Adhere this panel to a piece of Calypso Coral 3 7/8 x 5 1/8), then onto0 the inside of the card. Voila!
In Bloom w/ Sweet Symmetry DSP

For the envelope I embossed a panel of Pale Papaya card stock with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder then adhered it to the envelope flap, trimmed to fit. The front got the same process as the inside of the card creating the flower: Pale Papaya ink, stamped off once for the flower, then Calypso Coral ink stamped off for the flower center.

Fun, bright, cheery card that could be used for birthday or – as is the case for this card – college graduation. WooHoo, way to go Friend!

SU! Daisy Delight – Sympathy Card

Hi Everyone – I haven’t posted in a couple of days… lost a dear friend to complications of Covid 19 and well, it just stinks… know what I mean? She was misdiagnosed initially and therefore didn’t get any treatment for longer than necessary. And that’s disappointing on many fronts. She was a gentle soul.

The card today is being sent to her family. Besides being church buddies, we also belonged to a women’s organization together. This card symbolizes some of that organization. And I find the card uplifting and hope the family does as well.

Daisy Lane – Sympathy

It starts with a panel of Whisper White and I have adhered a strip of Subtles 6×6 DSP in So Saffron. On either side I have used the Ornate Borders Dies to die cut a beautiful trim, again from So Saffron, which also is adhered to the Whisper White panel with liquid glue. I then ran this entire panel through the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. I haven’t done this before – where I added layers to a card front and ran it all through an embossing folder, but I love the look! You may see this again in the near future šŸ™‚

Next I took a piece of the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo pack (Whisper White 1/2″ Faux Linen Ribbon) and adhered it with Stampin’ Seal, right through the middle of the DSP strip. Then I added a length of the 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon in Bumblebee over that. This was attached with Stampin Seal in the back only. Then I added the daisy which was stamped from the Daisy Lane stamp set on Whisper White with So Saffron ink. I stamped twice and punched them both with the Daisy Punch. I curled the petals downward using a gentle touch with the bone folder. These were layered together with liquid glue, then two dimensionals together on the back and onto the card front. The center of the daisy got these awesome Beaded Pearls that add a really finished and elegant touch. I made a bow from the same 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot.

Daisy Lane – Sympathy

The sentiment comes from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set and was stamped in Memento Black ink on Whisper White and fussy cut. I cut down several dimensionals into strips and adhered them to the back of the sentiment and added it to the card front. This entire Whisper White panel was adhered to a slightly larger panel of So Saffron card stock. Dimensionals were added to it and on it went to the Thick Whisper White card base.

For the inside I stamped the large daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in So Saffron, stamping off at least once, onto the center of the Whisper White panel. Right on top of that I stamped the sentiment from Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Memento Black ink. This Whisper White panel was adhered to another piece of So Saffron with liquid glue then onto the inside of the card base. And voila – the card was complete!

Daisy Lane – Sympathy

For the envelope I took a piece of So Saffron cs and ran it through the Ornate Flowers 3D Embossing Folder then added it to the envelope flap. For the envelope front I stamped the smaller daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in stamped off once So Saffron ink. Done, done. AND ready to be sent to my friends family.
