Stampin’ Up! Pop of Petals Projects for Simply Stampin’ Sunday

Welcome to Simply Stampin’ Sunday – my weekly post of  Clean And Simple projects that can be made in minutes using Stampin’ Up! products.

Today I am showing you a few projects made at my 2018-19 Annual Catalog launch Open House event.  As part of the Make & Takes, customers decorated a box of their choice: Mini Pizza Box, Kraft Pillow Box  and Silver or Lustrous White Mini Gable Box.  We used the Pop of Petals stamp set and Four-Petal Flower Punch bundle.  Here is my project.  Some of my customers’ completed projects are shown below – lots of options…

The flowers from the Pop of Petals set were stamped with Blushing Bride ink on Whisper White card stock and punched with the Four-Petal Flower Punch.  The leaves from the Pop of Petals set were stamped with Shaded Spruce ink on Whisper White card stock and fussy-cut using Paper Snips Scissors.  Another option is to stamp the leaves from the Painted Harvest stamp set and punch using the Leaf Punch.

The flower petals are curled gently using your fingers and overlapped to add interest and dimension before adhering them to the banner strip.  Then the leaves are slipped under the blooms and adhered with Liquid Glue.  Gold Faceted Gems are the perfect finishing touch.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this project:

  1. Cut a piece of Shaded Spruce card stock 1″ x 4″ and trim the banner ends using the Banner Triple Punch.
  2. Adhere the banner strip to the Kraft Pillow Box with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  3. Stamp three flowers from the Pop of Petals stamp set on a 2″ x 5-1/2″ panel of Whisper White card stock with Blushing Bride ink.  Punch them out using the Four-Petal Flower punch.
  4. Stamp the leaf from the Pop of Petals stamp set multiple times on a 2″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Whisper White card stock with Shaded Spruce ink.  Use Paper Snips scissors to cut the leaves out – chop off the stems, they won’t show.  (Another option is to stamp the leaf from the Painted Harvest stamp set and punch them out with the Leaf punch.
  5. Curl the flower petals using your fingers and arrange them along the banner strip, overlapping them for added interest and dimension.  Apply Liquid Glue under the flower centers only and adhere them to the banner.
  6. Slip the leaves under the flowers and adhere with Liquid Glue.  If the stems are in the way, just snip them off, since they won’t show anyway.
  7. Add Gold Faceted Gems to the flower centers as a finishing touch.
  8. Ready for any occasion!  Smile at how quick & easy this was to complete 🙂

Here are some of my customers’ completed projects.  They chose to use the leaf image from the Painted Harvest stamp set and the Leaf punch.  Their flowers are adhered to a panel of Soft Sea Foam card stock matted with Shaded Spruce card stock.  The completed art pieces are adhered to Mini Pizza Boxes and a Lustrous White Mini Gable Box.

Stampin’ Up! Seasoned With Kindness for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

This is the week for our monthly Joint Blog Hop.  Be sure to stop by to check out what all the talented bloggers in this Hop have shared.  We have a sketch challenge AND a color challenge and can choose to participate in either one or both – I chose both!  Here is my card for this week:

And here are the sketch and color challenges for this week:

  

I used Gray Granite card stock for the card base and the plant buckets.  Love this new color Stampin’ Up! added to the Neutrals Collection!

To begin, I stamped the bucket outline images from the Seasoned With Kindness stamp set in Basic Gray ink on Gray Granite card stock, then added the stamped highlights to the buckets with Gray Granite ink.  I fussy-cut them with my Paper Snips.  Then I laid them on the panel of Very Vanilla card stock to determine the placement of the stamped plant images.

The plants from the Seasoned With Kindness stamp set were stamped with Pear Pizzazz ink.  I stamped the image for the plant in the center three times – the first one is full strength and then twice more without re-inking the stamp.  I stamped the flower image on either side with Pear Pizzazz ink and then twice more on a scrap of Very Vanilla with Fresh Fig ink, colored the bloom with the blender pen using ink from the lid of the stamp pad, fussy-cut the flowers and glued them over the top of the image stamped in green.  I also added color to the leaves of the flower using a blender pen and Pear Pizzazz ink.

I wrapped a length of Very Vanilla Baker’s Twine around the top of each bucket and tied a knot.  Then I shaped the buckets slightly using my fingers and attached a thin strip of foam cut from the edge of the Stampin’ Dimensionals pad in the center of each bucket, running from top to bottom, to adhere the buckets over the bottom of the plants.  I stamped a few little butterflies from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink, stamped off once on a scrap first, then on the art piece.  I stamped the little tag from the Seasoned With Kindness stamp set on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock in Bermuda Bay ink (stamped off once) and fussy-cut it before adhering it to the bucket with a dab of glue.

I stamped the image of the vines from the Botanical Bliss stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink on a panel of Pear Pizzazz card stock.  Then I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the art piece to the Pear Pizzazz panel and again to adhere that to a Fresh Fig mat.  The completed layer is adhered to the card front with Dimensionals.  Then I wrapped a length of Very Vanilla Baker’s Twine around the top edge of the card front and tied a bow.

The inside of the card has a few more of the little Bermuda Bay butterflies, a flower stamped and colored in the same manner as the two on the card front and a sentiment from the Seasoned With Kindness stamp set stamped in Fresh Fig ink – all on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  The panel is then adhered to a Fresh Fig card stock mat before adhering it to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Pop of Petals Promenade for Simply Stampin’ Sunday

Welcome to Simply Stampin’ Sunday – my weekly post of  Clean And Simple projects that can be made in minutes using Stampin’ Up! products.

My card design was inspired by Global Design Project #GDP142.

The Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper is by far one of my favorite papers in the new 2018-19 Annual Catalog.  The photographic floral designs are just beautiful.  I used one of the designs to create this sweet wedding card for today’s post.  And this DSP is included in one of my Mega-Bundles!  Be sure to check them out here – more info below this post.

The front of the card is embossed using the Tufted Dynamic embossing folder.  Put it on your list – just saying – you will love it.

I used the Four-Petal Flower punch to build the bloom for my focal point, taking care to keep the flower center from the image centered in the punch.  I punched it twice and offset the petals to add fullness.

Curling the petals a bit with my fingers before adhering the layers added dimension.  The stamped leaves are from the the Painted Harvest stamp set and cut out with the Leaf punch.  Quick and easy!

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score at 4-1/4″ and fold for card base.
  2. Use the Tufted Dynamic embossing folder with your Big Shot on the front of the card base to add texture.  (You will need to adjust the recipe for your sandwich due to the folder being thicker than standard embossing folders.)
  3. Cut a panel of Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper 1-5/8″ x 5-1/2″.  Then cut the strip at an angle so it is 1-5/8″ on the left side and 1″ on the right side.
  4. Adhere the DSP panel to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  5. Wrap a length of Silver and Petal Pink around the card front twice and tie a bow to the right side.
  6. Use the Four-Petal Flower punch to cut out 2 blooms from the Petal Promenade, making sure to center the punch on the center of the blooms.
  7. Curl the petals with your fingers and layer the blooms with the petals offset to add fullness – adhere with Liquid Glue,
  8. Stamp two of the leaf images from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink on Pear Pizzazz card stock.  Cut out with the Leaf punch.
  9. Use the Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut a circle from Whisper White Thick card stock.
  10. Adhere the flower and leaves to the circle with Liquid Glue.  Adhere the completed art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  11. Stamp the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings in Pear Pizzazz ink on a scrap of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Use the Classic Label punch to cut it out.
  12. Trim a banner end on the right end of the label using Paper Snips.  Adhere the sentiment label to the edge of the circle and over the twine with Mini Glue Dots.

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Pop of Petals for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Pop of Petals Bundle and the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today.  We have a color challenge this week and this is what I made for it:

Here are the colors we are using:

The Pop of Petals stamp set and coordinating Four-Petal Flower Punch was definitely on my short list as I went through the catalog.  There are five flower variations and a butterfly that work with the punch.  Plus some additional images of flowers and leaves.  Fun!  And so many options!

To begin, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper to the front of my Granny Apple Green card base.  Adhere a smaller panel of the DSP to a panel of Shaded Spruce card stock.  Wrap a length of Silver and Petal Pink Baker’s Twine around the panel three times and secure the ends on the back with tape.  Stamp the floral image with the six petal mini flower in the center on a panel of Whisper White card stock with Blushing Bride ink – two full flowers to be punched out and four images to fussy-cut the small flower from the centers.

Stamp the leaf image three times on Whisper White card stock with Shaded Spruce ink and fussy-cut with Paper Snips.  Shape the flower petals and leaves to add some dimension.  Layer the two full flower images and one of the fussy-cut small ones and adhere with a small amount of Liquid Glue in the centers.  Use a Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere the flower to the art panel.  Apply Liquid Glue to the base of the leaves and slip them into place under the flower.  Use Dimensionals to adhere the art panel to the card front.  Tie a triple-loop bow and adhere over the wrapped twine with a Mini Glue Dot.  Add three more small fussy-cut flowers to the card front. Add a Clear Rhinestone to the center of each of the small flowers to complete.

The inside liner of the card is a Whisper White panel with a strip of DSP adhered along the lower edge with Liquid Glue.  Stamp two flower images with Blushing Bride ink on Whisper White card stock, punch them out, layer them and adhere in the upper left corner with Glue.  Then adhere the panel to the inside of the card.  It’s ready for your hand-written note for whatever occasion may arise.

Stampin’ Up! Garden Impressions Gorgeous Birthday for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products.  Our theme this month is “Birthday”.  My card features the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper.  Here is the card I created:

This card design was CASEd from a card made by BJ Peters.  The card base is Soft Sea Foam card stock – new this year from the Color Revamp – love it!  Stamp the sentiment from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set in Blueberry Bushel ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere it to a panel of Blueberry Bushel card stock.  Adhere the completed layer to the card base with Glue.

Cut a panel of Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper and use Liquid Glue to adhere it to a panel of Lovely Lipstick card stock.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the layer to the card front.  Use a length of 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon in Lovely Lipstick to tie a small bow.  Adhere the bow to the DSP layer using a Mini Glue Dot.

Stamp the inside sentiment with Blueberry Bushel ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere to a panel of Blueberry Bushel card stock and then adhere the layer to the inside of the card using Liquid Glue for both.  Easy-peasy, right?

Stampin’ Up! Varied Vases Thanks for Simply Stampin’ Sunday

Welcome to Simply Stampin’ Sunday – my weekly post of  Clean And Simple projects that can be made in minutes using Stampin’ Up! products.

My card design was based on this sketch:  SSC180 from Sunday Stamps 

I used the Varied Vases stamp set and the new Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper for today’s card.  This stamp set is really pretty and versatile – a definite “must have” in your collection.  And even though the Twinkle Twinkle DSP collection is part of a Suite in the Kids & Babies section, the small scale prints are awesome for general card making, too.

I used the DSP from this collection for the background, the banner and the vase.

The blooms are stamped with Night of Navy ink and colored with the Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blends marker.  I wrapped a length of Night of Navy Medium Baker’s Twine twice around the layer and tied a bow.  A single Clear Rhinestone adds the finishing touch.

Stamp a set of blooms with Night of Navy ink plus a little leaf stamped in Soft Sea Foam to add a bit of color to the inside of the card.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ panel of Night of Navy card stock.  Score at 4-1/4″ and fold for the card base.
  2. Cut a 3-3/4″ x 5″ panel of Designer Series Paper (DSP) and adhere to a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel of Whisper White Thick card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  3. Cut a 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ strip of DSP and use the Banner Triple Punch on one end.
  4. Use Liquid Glue to adhere the banner across the card front layer.  Trim left side even with the edge of the mat.
  5. Wrap a length of Night of Navy medium baker’s twine twice around the layer over the top of the banner and tie a bow.
  6. Adhere the completed layer to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Use the Layering Circles Framelits dies to cut a scalloped circle from Whisper White card stock and a plain circle mat from Night of Navy card stock.
  8. Use the Vases Builder punch to cut a vase from DSP.
  9.  Lay the vase on the Whisper White circle to determine the placement for the blooms and the sentiment.  Stamp both in Night of Navy ink.
  10. Stamp a single leaf with Soft Sea Foam ink.
  11. Color the blooms with a Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blends marker.
  12. Adhere the punched vase to the circle art piece with Liquid Glue.
  13. Use Liquid Glue to adhere the art piece to the Night of Navy mat.  Adhere the completed layer to the card front with Dimensionals.
  14. Add a Clear Rhinestone embellishment to the center of the bloom.
  15. Stamp a bloom and leaf in the same manner as steps 9 and 10 on a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel of Whisper White card stock and adhere to the inside of the card.

** A complete list of products used is listed at the bottom of this post.
