Another Wild About Flowers Card and Sale-a-bration 2nd Release

DSC_0003

I am still making cards for a friend and thought I would show you one that I made for her. I am using retired Designer Series Paper in this sample but you could easily substitute with current paper Stampin’Up! offers. I will post a recommendation in my supply list.

DSC_0006

I just love the Layering Circle Thinlits, they come with scalloped edge and regular edge framelits. I used Gold Foil cardstock for the scallop edge layer. I added a little gold heart to the Whisper White panel from the Metallic Enamel Shapes collection.

DSC_0002

The cardstock color is Rose Red but just coordinate the color with the color in the DSP you decide to use. That is what is great about Stampin’Up! everything is color coordinated for you. The Stampin’Pad for the flower is also Rose Red. I cut the Rose Red banner that goes down the center of the card with the Triple Banner Punch. I made the banner that happy birthday is stamped on using paper snips to cut the ends into a banner shape. This banner size was too small for the Triple Banner Punch.

Here are the sizes for the Triple Banner Punch

I think this card would be beautiful with the Berry Burst Stampin’Pad and cardstock. I just didn’t happen to have that color but it is my top pick for you guys if you want to make this card. Just use the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack (pictured below) for the Designer Series Paper.

Berry Burst 8-1/2

Isn’t the Berry Burst color beautiful! This is the cardstock pictured above. This is from the 2017-19 Incolor collection and you can buy an assortment pack of cardstock as well as the single color pack.

Wild About Flowers Card and Paper Pumpkin

DSC_0005

Here is an idea for a retirement card. This card is made with the Wild About Flowers photopolymer stamp set. I decided on a quick and simple design as that is all you need with the images in this stamp set.  The cardstock used is Elegant Eggplant and Garden Green. I know it is hard to tell in the photo as the Elegant Eggplant photographed really dark.

DSC_0004

I stamped some of the flowers on the inside. I hope Stampin’Up! will keep this set in the upcoming new Annual Catalog in June. They do retire their products and keep the product line fresh.

DSC_0002

I added a little butterfly to the card for a pop of color. This butterfly was cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit that is currently retired.

More Bubble Over Fun!

DSC_0007

I know it is time to move on to another stamp set, but this one is so much fun! I have been playing with this stamp set again and thought I would show you what I came up with.  Colorful isn’t it?  I think this one is a great celebration card! It could be for graduation, birthday, retirement you name it!

dsc_0009.jpg

I added bubbles using the Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes. This along with the Bubble Over Bundle are found in the Occasions Catalog.

DSC_0010

Love the bottle caps! So many details you can add with the framelits! The Designer Series Paper is FREE from the Sale-a-bration Brochure with a qualifying purchase of $50 (before shipping and tax).

Here is another idea

DSC_0011

This is a quick card! I cut the bottles from the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series paper using the coordinating die (they are designed to work together). I stamped the bubbles with Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’Pad on cardstock of the same color.

I hope you enjoyed my cards and they inspire you to CREATE! Don’t forget, it is still Sale-a-bration time! Stampin’Up!’s best promotion of the year! The Bubble Over Bundle is $40.50 so just if you add $9.50 more in product ( which believe me is easy to do) you can get the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper for FREE, an $11.00 value.

New Host Code and Bubble Over Celebration Card

DSC_0018

Here is a happy card for you! It is certainly bright and cheery, perfect for a celebration! You could use this for a birthday or for a retirement card or perhaps a job promotion!

This card is made with the  Bubble Over Bundle of products from the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalog.

DSC_0021

I like the details of this card, like the oval shapes behind the bottle. The little dashes around the edge really add a lot. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits for the white oval and the Layering Ovals Framelits for the scalloped oval.  I added bubbles to the card using sequins and the Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes from the Occasions Catalog. The Epoxy Shapes include circle and teardrop or raindrop shapes.

Bubble Over Bundle

DSC_0014

This is a colorful card isn’t it? So bright and kinda sassy! This card is made with the new Bubble Over Bundle from the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalog. The bundle includes the Bubble Over Photopolymer Stamp set and the Bottles and Bubbles Framelits Dies.  You save 10% when you buy the bundle but you can purchase them individually.

DSC_0015

Don’t you just love the details in this bundle? There is a framelit to cut the bottle tops out! I used silver foil cardstock for the bottle tops. I used the Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes, also sold in the Occasions Catalog, to accent the small bubbles. I used some sequins to enhance the larger bubbles. I am often inspired by other stampers and the inspiration for this card from Vicky Wright’s card, she is a Stampin’Up Demonstrator in Australia.

The Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper is FREE with a $50 (before shipping and tax) purchase because it is a Sale-a-bration offering.

The bottles were cut out with the appropriate framelit and then colored by running the sponge brayer over the stamp pad and then over the bottle in a back and forth motion.

I hope you like my card and it inspires you to CREATE!

More Lots of Lavender Cards

DSC_0001

This is a Sale-a-bration stamp set called Lots of Lavender. You can earn FREE with a $50 purchase until March 31. This design is very similar to a card in an earlier post, it is just a little different layout. It is very simple! I just love this stamp set! It is so easy to work with. The image is totally colored by stamps in the set. Very clever of Stampin’Up! to design it this way. I added a couple of Gold Faceted Gems to the top and bottom of the card. The colors used are Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizazz, Sahara Sand. The greeting comes from the Wild About Flowers stamp set.

Here is another idea with this stamp set

DSC_0005

The cardstock is Wisteria Wonder and the Designer Series Paper is retired.  I used the greeting from the Party Pandas stamp set which is another FREE Sale-a-bration stamp set with a $50 purchase.

Sale-a-bration ends March 31. Click on the brochure icon in the right sidebar to see the products offered in this promotion. This is Stampin’Up!’s best promotion of the year!

Remember my Host Code special offer for your purchase of $75 (before shipping and tax). Order by January 30 and receive a FREE Light Pool Party Stampin’Blend Alcohol Marker from me.

I absolutely love the die cuts in the kit. The floral design reminds of the Lots of Lavender stamp set which is a Sale-a-bration stamp set. The vellum leaves really add a nice soft look!

 

Also included in this kit are 4 Watercolor Pencils! The Flirty Flamingo and Lemon Lime Twist colors are exclusive to this kit. You can view this kit in my online store here. The Blender Pens are recommended for the watercolor technique but you can also just color the images with the Watercolor Pencils without watercoloring.

I know you will enjoy this kit just for yourself too!

Have a great day and be sure to take time to CREATE!
