Pretty Medallion Birthday Card – World Watercolor Month

I’ve been wanting to try the Pretty Medallion stamp in watercolor and since it is World Watercolor Month…here it is.

I started with a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper and placed this in my Stamparatus. Using VersaMark ink, I inked up this single, large stamp several times in order to get as good of an impression on the watercolor paper as I could. I then used white embossing powder and heat set.

My color palette for this card consists of Polished Pink, Granny Apple Green and Evening Evergreen inks. I like to dab my ink pads on a large stamp block and add water to the ink as needed. I started by laying down a pale wash of each color and allowed the watercolor paper to dry completely. I then started darkening each section of the stamp where I wanted more of a color impact. You can see on the Granny Apple Green flowers that I concentrated the darkest shade of this ink towards the bottom of the flowers.

I came back in with a very pale wash of Polished Pink and filled in around all of the embossed segments of the stamped image. I stamped the sentiment in Granny Apple Green ink then used the Deckled Rectangle Dies to die cut the sentiment label. A blending brush was used to add a soft pink to the label.

The Deckled Rectangle Dies were also used to cut out the watercolor panel and this was matted to a piece of Evening Evergreen, then this unit was adhered to the card front. A length of Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon was attached to the lower portion of the card using Stampin’ Seal then the sentiment label was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals A few Polished Dots were also added to the card front.

An additional sentiment was stamped on the inside panel in Granny Apple Green ink and Polished Pink was lightly blended on this panel in the corners. The panel was then adhered to the inside of the card. I also blended Polished Pink on the envelope front and envelope flap.

I had a lot of fun water coloring this stamped image and the embossing made the process easy to stay within the lines! I love pink and green together and I was very pleased with how this card turned out.

The Pretty Medallion stamp could also be used to stamp in Memento ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends…I’ll be trying this out soon. The color combinations that you can use on this stamped image are endless. You can find the Pretty Medallion Stamp on page 116 of the Annual Catalog. I highly recommend that you check it out…so pretty!

Stampin’ Up! Window Wishes and Trimming The Tree Christmas Card

I know, I know, it’s probably too early to be thinking about Christmas Cards…especially when most of the country is gripped in a heat wave…but I want to start sharing the amazing holiday stamp sets, bundles, and paper with you to give you some ideas so you can get started on your holiday cards!

For today’s card I used the Window Wishes Bundle, the Trimming The Tree Stamp Set, and the Spruced Up Stamp Set.

Instead of creating a window looking outside, I decided to have my window looking inside onto a Christmas tree surrounded by glowing light! The card sits on a Pear Pizzazz card base with a panel of Starry Sky. The Starry Sky panel was stamped with a snowflake from the Spruced Up stamp set in white craft ink. Using die from the Window Wishes Bundle, the window was assembled and is adorned with an evergreen swag and red bow.

I used the Label Me Lovely punch to punch out the sentiment label and matted this on a second label punched in a darker green. I added Adhesive-backed Stars to the card front then used Wink of Stella to add some sparkle to the Christmas tree and the tips of the stamped snowflakes.

I love the holidays and had a lot of fun creating this card! I hope you give it a try. What kind of scene will you create in your window?

Stampin’ Up Scary Cute Halloween Card

This little princess is trick-or-treating by the light of the full moon…BOO!

The Scary Cute Bundle (stamps and dies) is not really that scary and absolutely adorable. I paired this bundle with the Black & White Design 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper which is perfect for Halloween cards. The card sits on a gorgeous grape card base.

Our little princess was stamped on a die cut Daffodil Delight circle using the Stamparatus to ensure a good, solid stamped image. I also added several die cut bats from the Scary Cute Bundle, and a tree branch from the Harvest Dies set.

The DSP star pattern paper was added to the card front, then a strip of the same pattern in reverse and the circle (moon) was added to the card front. I added a sentiment label matted in Gorgeous Grape and adhered the label slightly overlapping the yellow circle. A black and white gingham ribbon complete the card front.

For the inside of the card, an additional sentiment was added along with some stamped bats to complete the card.

Stampin’ Up! Happier Than Happy Congratulations Card Fun Fold – Friday Fun Day

Happy Friday! I have a fun fold card for you today…a pop-up card using the Happier Than Happy Bundle and the Happy Forest Friends 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. This set is so cute!

I started with a card base in Smoky Slate and used a piece of the DSP for the card front showing a forest scene. This adorable paper does most of the work here! I went with a simple white die cut square for the sentiment label and decorated the label with a die cut pine tree, a stamped and die cut mushroom and a fussy cut mushroom from the DSP.

For the inside of the card another piece of DSP was used with a forest theme. A rectangular tube was created in cardstock to form the pop-up portion of the card and adhered inside of the card to the card base. A strip of the same DSP was adhered to the front side of the rectangular tube. I stamped the bear, tree stump and pine tree from the Happier Than Happy Bundle then die cut the pieces and adhered these to the pop-up mechanism. A fussy cut mushroom was also added. A white panel decorated with a die cut pine tree was added inside of the card.

The envelope front was decorated with several stamped images from the set, and I adhered a coordinating piece of the DSP to the envelope flap and fussy cut around the flap to finish the envelope.

When the card is opened, the bear, pine tree and other forest pieces pop-up. The little bear even appears to be waving! The best part about this fun fold is that the card will stand on its own when opened to display this cute little scene!

This fun fold would be so great using other stamp and die bundles and I can’t wait to create another card using this fun fold!

Have a wonderful weekend! Stay safe, have fun and stay crafty!

Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World Congratulations Card

The Wonderful World Bundle from the July-August 2022 Sale-A-Bration catalog is by far my favorite! Although it’s a tough call… The stamps are gorgeous, and the Designer Series Paper is AMAZINGLY beautiful! You can earn the Wonderful World Bundle by placing a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration ($100 or more). If you want this bundle, don’t delay! Items in the Sale-A-Bration catalog are while supplies last. One of the Sale-A-Bration items has already sold out.

I chose a Blackberry Bliss card base for my card today and adhered a piece of the Wonderful World DSP to the card base front. I then fussy cut one of the large flowers from a piece of the DSP and adhered that to a die cut and matted piece of Blackberry Bliss. The square die cut was turned on point to form a diamond and the fussy cut flower was adhered to the diamond. I then popped up this unit to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Charming Sentiments Bundle, I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock using VersaMark ink, then embossed the sentiment using White Embossing Powder. The sentiment was die cut using the coordinating die from the Charming Sentiments Bundle. This was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A white Crinkled Seem Binding Ribbon bow was attached to the stem of the flower, and I added a few purple Glossy Dots to the card front. A strip of coordinating DSP was added to the inside panel and this panel was adhered inside of the card.

The iris image was stamped onto the envelope front in Blackberry Bliss ink and a piece of coordinating DSP was added to the envelope flap and I fussy cut around the flap to finish off the envelope.

Stampin’ Up! Stylish Sketches Thank You Card

These sweet little ducks on this card came from the Stylish Sketches Stamp Set which you can earn free with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration which runs through August 31. I also used the Fabulous Frames Dies and a sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set.

I started with a card base in Gray Granite and wrapped a length of Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon around a panel in Cherry Cobbler. A frame was die cut in Gray Granite cardstock and adhered to the Cherry Cobbler panel. The image of the ducks was stamped onto white cardstock, then using the same die from the Fabulous Frames Dies I cut the stamped image out and adhered to the center of the frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

When coloring the image of the ducks I kept the colors light and soft. A small bow was tied using the Shimmer Ribbon and adhered under the frame. A sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship Stamp set was stamped in Gray Granite ink and adhered to the card front below the frame.

The leaf image from the Stylish Sketches set was stamped in Gray Granite ink for the inside panel as well as the envelope front and envelope flap. This completes the card. How sweet are these little ducks?

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings and Rustic Pumpkins Thinking of You Card

Happy Monday! Today’s card features the Soft Seedlings Stamp Set and the Rustic Pumpkins Dies. I started with a card base in Cherry Cobbler.

On a Very Vanilla panel I repeatedly stamped the maple leaf from the Soft Seedlings stamp set. I love creating card backgrounds using this technique! The stamp from this set has maple seedlings attached but I used my paper snips to cut the stamp in two pieces so that I could use only the maple leaf. The two pieces can be easily matched up again and placed on a stamping block in order to stamp the entire image. The vanilla panel was matted to a piece of Early Espresso then this unit was adhered to the card front.

The maple leaf was also stamped on the inside panel and envelope front and flap. I then used a small amount of Stampin’ Seal on the center of the card front and looped a length of gold Simply Elegant Trim and adhered to the Stampin’ Seal.

The two pumpkin dies, pumpkin stem, and vine were die cut in Gold Foil. I also die cut a circle in Early Espresso using the largest circle die from the Layering Circles Dies. The pumpkin was assembled then adhered to the circle then this unit was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a sentiment label at an angle in the upper left corner of the card then added a Rustic Metallic Dot.

This completes the card for today. You can find the Soft Seedlings Stamp Set and the Rustic Pumpkin Dies in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. I just love the rich, warm colors of Fall! How about you?

Stampin’ Up Campology – Friday Fun Day – Fun Fold Pop Out Card

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has been enjoying a relaxing week…or at least stress-free!

I seem to be strolling down memory lane a lot lately! This card reminds me of camping when I was younger…I did a lot of camping! First as a Girl Scout, then as a Scout Leader. Lots of fun and lots of good memories.

You might miss the Campology Stamp Set in the Annual Catalog but it is one you might want to check out further. The fun images and sentiments are perfect for a masculine card, youth card, or anyone that enjoys the outdoors.

I paired this stamp set with paper from the Rustic Harvest 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper pack. I chose the black and white acorn print (can you see the adorable little acorns on this paper?) and the Mossy Meadow swirls print. All of the DSP was matted onto Basic Black cardstock.

I chose the lantern image along with the sentiment “You brighten my path” for the front of the card. A little stamping, coloring, and matting and the card is complete!

How would you decorate this fun fold? Let me know in the comments below.

Stampin’ Up! Lighthouse Point Friendship Card – Another Watercolor Background for you to Try

In honor of National Watercolor Month, I have another watercolor background for you to try! I used the Lighthouse Point Bundle for today’s card and the background scene really sets off this beautiful lighthouse! This set reminds me of all of the gorgeous lighthouses in Maine.

I will admit that this card took a bit longer to create, but so worth it. I provide step by step instructions in my project sheet so be sure to check it out. The card sits on a Real Red card base, and I die cut a number of pieces to assemble the lighthouse. The watercolor panel was painted, and I adhered the lighthouse to this panel. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels around the water to indicate sparkle!

This set comes with two sizes of sentiment labels. I used the smaller die cut for the actual sentiment and the larger die for a mat for the sentiment…perfect! A lighthouse, beam and rocks were stamped on the inside of the card as well as the envelope front to complete this project.

Stampin’ Up! Fish & A Wish Get Well Card in Honor of National Watercolor Month!

In honor of National Watercolor Month, today’s card features an underwater watercolor background for our happy fishes! Creating this ombre-like watercolor panel is easy and quick and I provide complete instructions in the project sheet.

The Fish & A Wish Bundle were used for today’s card which includes the stamp set and a Fish Builder Punch. I first painted the watercolor background using three different blue inks – Pool Party, Balmy Blue and Pacific Point. Some see grass was stamped onto the watercolor panel in Night of Navy ink. I then stamped and punched the fish and adhered them to the card front. I popped up one of the fish using Stampin’ Dimensionals to provide some depth to the scene.

The sentiment was stamped onto white cardstock then punched out using the builder punch. I punched out a second fish in Pacific Point cardstock and layered this behind the fish sentiment label to provide a shadow behind the sentiment. This was added to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the wave image and small fish from the stamp set and stamped these images on the inside card panel as well as the envelope front and envelope flap.

Lastly, I added multiple Opal Rounds to the card front to give the impression of bubbles. How cute are these little fishes…and so easy to stamp and punch out!
