Pretty Perennials Bundle

Stampin’ Up! Sent with Love, Pretty Perennials

Today is President’s Day! What does that mean to you? What I think of is Abraham Lincoln… and hubby just finished reading a book titled Abe that was really good. He was an amazing man and an incredible president. If you like history – this is an excellent read. I have my hands wrapped around the book Eleanor right now and keep learning how incredible she was as a First Lady of our country. These thingsd have nothing to do with today’s card, so maybe I should just get on with it…

Can you see in the photo the embossing on the card front? I’ve used two folders, one for the DSP and another for the Basic White card stock. They come together and are called Meadow Moments Embossing Folder. Here’s better photo to share the delicasy of these two.

I think you can see the embossing better, right? So delicate and beautiful. And here’s how I put this card together…

  • Emboss the Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP with the leaf portion of the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder set.
  • Emboss the Basic White panel with the floral, butterfly and leaf portion of the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder set.
  • Adhere the DSP strip to the Basic White panel with liquid glue.
  • Add the Just Jade 20-22 In Color Ribbon by wrapping to the back and hold in place with Stampin Seal
  • Die cut the flower from Hydrangea Hill DSP and the petals for the flower in Basic White card stock. Adhere the flower together with liquid glue and a mini dimensional. Add an Opal Rounds to the center. (Truth be told… this flower was sitting on my desk from a previous project and I liked the color contrasts of the green and pink.😊)
  • Adhere the flower to the card front with a dimensional.
  • Also sitting on my desk was this butterfly die cut with the Butterfly Dies (new product! this will be available in the 2021 Annual Catalog.) I adhered this butterfly with dimensionals as well.
  • Stamp the sentiment with Memento Black ink on Basic White card stock and die cut with the Potted Succulents Dies. The sentiment comes from Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. I attached the sentiment to the card front with dimensionals and trimmed the end.
  • Adhere this panel to another layer of Basic White card stock for strength then to the Thick Basic White card base with dimensionals ~ and your card front is done!

For the inside… I wanted to carry both the green and pink to the inside so adhered a strip of the same Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP (new product available soon to customers!) to the right side of the Basic White panel. I die cut another flower with the Perennial Petals Dies, this time from the Paper Blooms DSP (FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 order). I also die cut petals from Basic White card stock and a scrap I had on my desk of…. for the center of the flower. All were adhered together with liquid glue and another Opal Rounds was added as well. This was adhered to the inside of the card with liquid glue. This Basic White card stock panel was adhered to a Mint Macaron piece then to the inside of the card – all with liquid glue. and the inside was complete!

For the envelope… I adhered a panel of the Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP to the envelope flap and trimmed it to fit. For the front of the envelope, I stamped the flower background from the Pretty Perennials stamp set, in Roccco Rose ink stamped off once, then the detail flower stamp in full strength Rococo Rose ink – and the card was finis!

This card is so versatile – it could easily be a sympathy card or birthday or simply thinking of you, depending on if you stamped something special inside. I like that it is cheery and bright too.

Stampin’ Up! True Love & Happy

It is Super Bowl weekend! Woohoo! And what are YOU doing during Super Bowl? I’ll probably color something while watching the game – it’s the perfect time. Or fussy cut… but that’s not my preference. Speaking of coloring, todays card uses the Stampin Blends and it gives a bolder look than the card of yesterday with the pencils. I used another one of the True Love DSP papers too. Let’s take a look…

True Love Happy #1

This card incorporates the Pretty Perennials stamp set in the sentiments on the card front and the word ‘happy’ just pops! I colored just the smallest of the flowers using both the Light & Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends – just enough to tie in the Daffodil Delight card stock it sits on and the Ruched Ribbon, also in Daffodil Delight.

I stamped the word ‘happy’ in VersaMark ink on a piece of Basic Black card stock after using the embossing buddy to clear it of any static, then sprinkled White embossing powder over the ink and heat set it. Once it cooled a bit I fussy cut the word. I then adhered it to a piece of Basic White card stock and fussy cut around it again, giving it a white border. I stamped the word ‘birthday’ also from the Pretty Perennials stamp set, in Memento Black ink on a Basic White scrap and punched it with the Classic Label Punch. After deciding where I wanted to place the larger word, I ran a strip of Stampin’ Seal across and wove the Ruched Ribbon to just the way I wanted it, and the Stampin Seal held it nicely in place. I put dimensionals on both sentiments, adhering the larger word first, then the ‘birthday just over the ends, also on dimensionals. I added three 2020-2022 Enamel Dots in Bumblebee for the final touch.

The True Love DSP panel was adhered to Daffodil Delight card stock, put on dimensionals then added to the Thick Basic White card base and the card front was complete.

True Love Happy #2

For the inside I added a 3/4″ strip of the same True Love DSP to the bottom of the Basic White panel after coloring with the Daffodil Delight Stampin blends. This panel was adhered to a Daffodil Delight panel with liquid glue then to inside of the card base, also with liquid glue – and the card was done. Easy peasy…

True Love Happy #3

For the envelope I did no coloring, just added a strip of the True Love DSP to the envelope flap and that’s it. A bright, cheery card ready to send to someone special.

Stampin’ Up! Pretty Perennials

Hello again. It’s 17degrees this morning…. now these kind of temps will kill lots of germs! OK, enuf of that… today’s card… I love the dies in this bundle! The leaves and the decorative dies for the flowers are just so delicate and lovely. Here’s a close-up… are these stunning or what! They do the work for us. 🙂

Pretty Perennials bundle – #1

One of the nice parts about this bundle is all the dies can be run through the Mini Cut & Emboss machine. It’s another bonus. Yesterday was the first I had played with this set and all I did was work the dies. I did almost no stamping at all – so obviously there’s still lots for me to do with this set – yay!

Pretty Perennials bundle – #2

I had at hand the Hydrangea Hill DSP and chose to die cut the flower heads and the leaves from the papers, then the delicate overlay of the flowers is Basic White card stock. And the word ‘happy’ has a really fun script. More detail…

  • Die cut the flower heads and the large leaf image from Hydrangea Hill DSP using the Perennial Petals Dies
  • Die cut the delicate overlay for the flowers in Basic White card stock, also using the Perennial Petals Dies. Adhere these to the appropriate flower with just a dot of liquid glue in the center
  • Cut a strip of Hydrangea Hill DSP 1 1/4 x 4. Adhere the strip with liquid glue to the Basic White panel, about 1/2″ from bottom
  • Using the Stamparatus, stamp the word ‘happy’ in Memento Black ink. This comes from the Pretty Perennials stamp set. Using the Stamparatus allows for perfect placement if you need to re-stamp. I use it a lot!
  • Stamp the rest of the sentiment in Rococco Rose ink. This too, comes from the Pretty Perennials stamp set.
  • Adhere the leaf die with liquid glue, allowing the end of the stem to remain loose.
  • Stamp the sweet open flower in Rococo Rose ink – yep, from the Pretty Perennials stamp set
  • Adhere the two flower heads with liquid glue
  • Add these stunning Pastel Pearls to the centers of each flower. These are larger than our regular pearls and have four shades in the package: Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray. They are part of the suite of products from Hydrangea Hill collection – found on pg 19 in the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini catalog.
  • Adhere the completed panel to Rococo Rose card stock with liquid glue. Add dimensionals to the back of the Rococco Rose and adhere to a Thick Basic White card base. Card front is complete!

Unfortunately I did not take photos of the inside of the card – and it is already out the door! But here’s what I did… use your imagination 🙂 silly me.

  • Die cut the group of stems in the Perennial Petals Dies from a piece of the Hydrangea Hill DSP. I used the same DSP for the larger leaf on the front.
  • Using this same set of dies, die cut the group of small flower heads from the same blue Hydrangea Hill DSP as the blue flower on the card front. Adhere both with liquid glue to the lower left corner of a panel of Basic White card stock.
  • Adhere this panel to another of Rococo Rose, then into the inside of the card. and voila!
