Grateful

The Flowers and More Designer Series Paper , which is a Host Reward in the Mini Catalog, is absolutely my favorite.  As I was cutting it for Paper Shares I knew I wanted to make something with it right away.  So I have another floral card to share.

 

Stampin' Up!, Flowers and More, Petal Park, Something Fancy, Jackie Beers

 

Bundles

I almost said this was a quick card. LOL!!  And it actually is fairly quick. But it utilizes two different Bundles besides the gorgeous paper.  I will talk about the bundles first.  The Petal Park Bundle was my first thought, as I had just received it and was making labels.  This one is a Punch Bundle.  I do love punches!!

Actually I had debated about this set because it seems fairly plain as it is simply some flowers and leaves.  Because it was a Punch, I gave in and ordered it.  And I am Thrilled that I did.  These flowers are wonderful, and are actually a variety of different flowers all on one stamp and punch.  The more solid flowers stamp was inked and stamped with Polished Pink Ink.  Then the outline stamps were inked with Sweet Sorbet and stamped over top.  The three flowers are one stamp and are perfectly aligned with the punch for an easy peasy cutting.

For the sentiment I went to the new Something Fancy Bundle.  This one is all sentiments in a variety of mixed fonts.  You know I love that!  And are paired with some flowers and sentiment layer dies.  I chose the simple layer die since I had the previous flowers to add to it.  This super sweet sentiment was stamped using Starry Sky Ink and then die cut.  I tried to pull a variety of colors from the DSP.

Paper

The card base of Thick Basic White is fairly plain.  But with the bold colors on the other two papers, it was sort of needed.  Plus there are white flowers in the focal paper.  These two pieces of DSP are from the fabulous Flowers and More Designer Series Paper.  This paper is one of the extra thick packs of DSP and is a Host Reward in the Mini Catalog.  It is on page 90 of the Mini and is 48 sheets of DSP.  The top piece was my attention getter, even though there are others that are just as pretty.  And the second sheet is the reverse of a bold print.  I like the blue stripes to soften all the bright colors in the papers.

The card for today is seriously quick and easy.  The DSP does all of the work for sure!  I am mixing the Awash In Beauty with the Happy Labels.

Stamp and Punch

I am beginning with the smaller point on the card, but also the newest.  The stamp set of sentiments, which is a Punch Bundle, is the Happy Labels set with the Happy Labels Punch.  Best of all, the punch is a Pick A Punch.  This means it has two different “End” decorations as well as three sizes in each.  I really love these and think most of y’all do as well.

Because the paper is so beautiful, and bright, I went with simplicity for the sentiment.  The sweet saying was stamped using the Balmy Blue in the paper as the thought.  And I backed it with a simple strip of Balmy Blue card stock to help it pop a bit more.

Paper

This beautiful paper is from the Awash In Beauty Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog.  As you can see, it is most definitely able to stand alone and make a beautiful card.  Which is the reason for the simple sentiment.  But I do love these colors and pulled even more of them for the layers.  Besides the little Balmy Blue strip with the sentiment I have the Daffodil Delight as the layer with Garden Green as the card base.  Can you tell I am ready for Spring!  LOL!!!  I got this idea from cutting my paper shares from the Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration papers.  There are some in those catalogs that would be just as pretty for quick and easy cards.

InKing Royalty January Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January 2023 Blog Hop! If your craft projects aren’t already filled with hearts, then you might be behind the eight ball. No worries – we are here to help. We are excited to share our heart-filled creations with you and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

The Hearts theme was an easy one to follow with the fabulous new Country Floral Lane Suite of products in the new Mini Catalog.  I loved this Suite as soon as I saw it and hope you will as well.

Stampin' Up!, Country Bouquet, Country Floral, Sweet Sorbet Metallic Ribbon, Bough Punch, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps and Punches

My card is sort of a Heart Bouquet.  And is not at all what I had planned originally!  The Country Bouquet Bundle is a Punch Bundle.  That was where I was originally headed.  Then I saw the floral heart that I have used and changed directions just a bit.  I did use the leaves from the punch.  They are slightly hidden by the bow.

However, the floral heart intrigued me and I had to give it a try.  It is a two step heart with the flowers and greenery separate.  The flowers are stamped using Sweet Sorbet Ink and the greenery is Pear Pizzaz.  Sadly with this being a punch bundle, I had to cut out the heart myself.  Since a heart is mostly straight lines that was not a huge undertaking.   I did use the leaves from the stamp set in Pear Pizzaz as well and punched them using the Country Bouquet Punch.  Then decided it needed more greenery to look like a bouquet.  So out came the Boughs Punch for the background greens.  This punch has been getting a lot of use from me of late.

Papers

To continue with the Sweet Sorbet and Pear Pizzaz, I went with a striped piece of DSP.  It is from the Country Floral Designer Series Paper that is also included in the Suite of products.  I layered the striped DSP onto a piece of Basic White and then to the base card of Pear Pizzaz.

Finishes

There are several final add on touches to complete this card.  First is the sentiment.  It is from the Country Bouquet stamp set as well.  So this is a one set card basically.  I love that!!  But it is die cut with a die from the Beautiful Trees Dies.  It is nothing flashy, and just has a bit of an embossed border around the edges.

The most notable of the finishes is the beautiful bow.  The Sweet Sorbet Metallic Ribbon is so pretty and extremely easy to work with.  Due to that I went a bit out of the norm and created a three strand bow.  I love how it really pops up.  And the final touch is the Festive Pearls scattered around.  There are some on flower centers of the heart, and one on the sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Sheryl Abernathy at Elegant Sentiments. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Let The Fun Begin

I have discovered that I am loving the Delicate Desert Suite of products!  The colors are amazing and really remind me of my trip to Arizona last summer.  I am hoping you will find it just as exciting.

 

Stampin' Up!, Desert Details Bundle, Delicate Desert , Iridescent Pastel Gems, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps and Dies

This card is fairly simple, but shows off the individual pieces pretty well.  The Desert Details is the stamp and dies for today’s project.  The flower may seem a bit out of place, but it does remind me of the yellow and rust blossoms that are fairly prevalent.  And the green succulent plant was everywhere.  However my favorite is the background die!  The little details around the edges are simply perfect!

Stampin’ Up! has now named the dies that match a stamp set the same name as the stamp set.  This makes it so easy to know what goes together and half as many names to remember! The card sentiment is also from the stamp set and one that seems so appropriate for many occasions.  I was still thinking of my fun vacation, we landed and hit the ground running to get to everything we had planned.  And it was so Fun!!  I also have one little trick I have learned to share with you here.

New Tip:

Do you notice the inside sections of the succulent?  When that piece is die cut, the inside pieces fall out.  I am used to that happening and did not think anything of it.  However, while I was sick I watched quite a lot of stamping videos.  (Shocking I know! 🙂 )  One person, and I cannot find that video again, so am not sure who it was, shared a  great technique for this die.  And I am sure it would work with others.  When you finish die cutting. place a piece of post it note, or post it tape over the die while the image is still inside.  Then turn it over and add Tear And Tape to the reverse side and remove the die.  That is what I did for this succulent plant.  It allows the inside pieces that would fall out, to be secured at the bottom but left loose at the top which makes a more 3D image!  I love this!!!

Paper

I have recently been showcasing the paper first, but today’s card idea actually came before the paper.  Although I sort of new which paper pack I was going to use.  The inside of the background layer is from the Delicate Desert Designer Series Paper.  These colors and pattern work perfectly with the stamp and dies.  Actually they are both from the Delicate Desert Suite of products, so they should.  These two colors in the paper not only are beautiful but tie the card colors together and add more of the desert feel.

Yesterday’s card used the second paper that is included in the Suite.  It is the Dry Brushed Metallic Specialty Paper and is two pieces of two different designs.  They are gorgeous.  You can see that card and paper HERE.

Embellishments

This card has several focal areas and really does not require bling.  Of course if you know me, then I had to add some anyway.  There is gold bling that is part of this suite.  But I opted for more subtle.  The Iridescent Pastel Gems are actually in the colors of my card.  I spread them around and used three different colors and sizes.

Hanging Out

Today I have another sneak peek for you.  If you have followed me for very long you know I love cats!!  The upcoming Love Cats stamp set is a must for cat lovers.

 

Stampin' Up!, Love Cats, Pretty Prints, Country Bouquet Punch, Heart Pack Punch, Jackie Beers

 

Stamp set

This cute Hanging Out Cat is from the Love Cats stamp set.  There are a couple of different “purrfect” cat positions that any cat person would recognize immediately.  This one spoke to me because one of my cats lays like this from almost any platform.  Here is one of her favorite positions.

 

Additionally, the sentiments are just as cute as the images.  The one I used is perfect for any occasion but really emphasizes the image.  This is one that makes me Smile!  I hope it does for you as well.

Papers

This color choices for today’s project was mainly because I wanted to use something different.  Not red, green or blue.  And Blackberry Bliss is a color that I do not use very often.  Especially as the overall color.  So here we are.  Of course with all of the Stampin’ Up! DSP, I was able to find a beautiful piece to work perfectly.  This gorgeous print is from the Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper.  I love the variations of the color.

Punch and Finish

The sentiment gave me a bit of trouble as to how to position it.  I could not decide on a layer.  But with the small Blackberry Bliss heart the cat is holding as inspiration, I decided on a larger heart.  The small heart is from the Country Bouquet Punch.  It punches two hearts at once.  However the larger one was too narrow for the sentiment.  So I went to the smaller of the Heart Pack Punches.  It is the non-scalloped one.  Then all I needed to do was adhere the sentiment to the heart and trim around it with the outline of the heart.  Easy Peasy!!

To finish this fun card it needed a bit of bling.  I only wanted a small bling.  So the Iridescent Hearts fit the bill perfectly.  It adds a bit of white to the dark heart and has some shine.

Country Florets

Today’s card is a mix of current and upcoming products.  I love how Stampin’ Up! products work well together regardless of old or new.

 

Stampin' Up!, Country Bouquet, Fitting Florets, Decorative Circle Punch, Label Me Fancy, Boughs, Jackie Beers

Paper and Colors

I knew which stamp set I wanted for this card, but needed some direction with the color and flow.  Turning to my DSP is always my next step.  The colors and patterns are wonderful.  Yesterday I shared with you the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper.  (You can see that card HERE!)  And today I have gone back to the Fitting Florets for yet another piece of that gorgeous paper.

This one is very bright and happy.  And it led me to this finished product.  The Night of Navy and Balmy Blue are a perfect match.  It is the unexpected Polished Pink that is the surprise and the star!

Stamps

Beginning with the Polished Pink and hearts was a fairly certain thing.  The stamps used are from the upcoming Country Bouquet stamp set and punch Bundle.  Did you notice Punch Bundle?  They are my favorite type of Bundles because they are less expensive and so quick and easy.  The two hearts are on one stamp but punch with one punch due to the layout.  That is an extra bonus.  Personally I also love the distressed, or I suppose Country, look of the hearts.  A bit of a softer look.

Punches

I went a bit heavy with punches for this card.  The background of the focal layer is the Decorative Circle Punch.  Then the leaves and flowers are from the Boughs Punch.  And last but not least is the sentiment layer of the Label Me Fancy Punch.  But as I mentioned before, they are so easy to look at your punch stash and decide what works best.

Hopefully this card works for you!  I love the mix of the dark and bright colors.  So to finish it off, I went with a few of the 2021-2023 In Color Opals in Polished Pink.  They are scattered on the boughs and a larger one on the sentiment layer.  And to finish the sentiment layer I chose one of the 2022-2024 items.  It is the Twine in those In Colors.  This one is Starry Sky, but against the mix of Night of Navy and Balmy Blue, it works perfectly.
