Stampin’ Up! Lazy Days Welcome Card Sneak Peek!

Here is a sneak peek of a card created using the Lazy Days Bundle, Bright & Beautiful 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and the 2023-2025 In Color Dots from the upcoming 2023-2024 Annual Catalog which will be available for customer orders beginning on May 2!

You can almost feel the cool shade from this front porch scene! The Lazy Days Bundle has a number of images that you can stamp and die cut to create your own scene. I had loads of fun creating this card!

I started by die cutting the porch post and trim piece from white cardstock. I then used a Balmy Blue and Boho Blue Stampin’ Blends to color in the porch post and a portion of the trim. FYI – the new “blues” combined with our existing shades of blue coordinate beautifully together!

The porch post and trim were then adhered to a wide striped panel in Misty Moonlight from the Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper Pack. I turned the panel so that the wide white strip was on the bottom of this landscape card. The white will serve as the porch for our little scene. I used a pair of paper snips to trim off the excess of the trim die cut flush with the designer series paper panel. The panel was then adhered to the card front.

I then stamped, colored and die cut a hanging basket, rug, potted plant and birdhouse. The hanging basket, potted plant and birdhouse were all stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The rug was stamped using Night of Navy ink. I used a variety of Stampin’ Blends to color in the images including Balmy Blue, Boho Blue, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pecan Pie, Copper Clay with some assistance from a Stampin’ Blend Color Lifter. One climbing vine was die cut from a scrap of Garden Green cardstock and one rocking chair was cut from Pecan Pie cardstock. For the rocking chair I used the dark shade of the Pecan Pie Stampin’ Blend to darken just the frame of the rocking chair.

The die cut images were then adhered to the card front using either liquid glue or Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The potted plant image was also stamped on the Inside Panel and envelope front and colored in using Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends for the leaves and Pecan Pie and Copper Clay Stampin’ Blends for the planter.

To finish up the card a piece of coordinating designer series paper was adhered to the envelope flap and I trimmed the excess paper away from the flap.

I hope you’re enjoying these sneak peeks of some of the new products coming soon! You’re going to love them all!
