Stampin’ Up! Flourishing Phrases Sympathy Card Tutorial

Do you usually reach for a green ink pad when you want to stamp stems and leaves? I’m ditching green and using the other “g” color for my elegant Stampin’ up! Flourishing Phrases sympathy card tutorial.

Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases card made with Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set and Stampin' Up! Flourish Thinlits Dies. Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases card designed by Shelly Godby of wwww.stampingsmiles.comThe decision to use colors other than the usual green for the stems and leaves was desired. Yet I wanted to use a traditional color for the flower. Sweet Sugarplum was the color of choice But, what colors to use with it?

The decision was quick and easy because I consulted my 2016-2018 In Color Combinations e-book with ten 3-color combinations I put together for each of the five 2016-2018 Stampin’ Up! In Colors. That’s a total of 50 personally selected color combinations! Click here to order your own 2016-2018 In Color Combinations e-book to make quick and easy color choices too.

Just received my 2012 Paper Share from Shelly and have only one thing to say: F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S-! It’s even better than last year’s offering! LOVE LOVE LOVE how organized everything is. There’s no guesswork and no wondering what the ribbon colors are or what the name of a particular collection of designer paper is. Everything is clearly labeled and wonderfully packaged. THANKS AGAIN, Shelly, for offering another spectacular share!

Paper Pumpkin is a crafting kit surprise in your mailbox every month for only $19.95 plus sales tax. The price includes shipping!

Will you like it? The best way to know is to try it! And what a great time with the 25% off your first three months special! What I like about this special is you’ll get to experience three kits before deciding if you’d like to continue your subscription. I have customers that have kept their subscriptions for years. They tell me it’s nice to have easy-to-put-together projects where someone else has done all the planning and prep work.

New subscribers receive a clear mount block to use over and over with the exclusive Paper Pumpkin only stamp sets. The kits also include at least one Ink Spot (small ink pad). Stampin’ Up! changes up the colors for each kit so not to repeat an Ink Spot color in a calendar year.

Stampin’ Up! Eastern Beauty Card So Very Fine in Vanilla

Stampin' Up! Eastern Beauty Card by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.com The new Eastern Beauty Stamp Set and coordinating Eastern Medallion Thinlits Dies are really something. You can make very ornate greeting cards or keep it a lot more simple as with my Stampin’ Up! Eastern Beauty card that is so very fine in Very Vanilla.

If you saw my quick cleaning tip for Thinlits dies video, you saw this card at the end. One of my stampers thought it had been embossed. It sure looks like it, but what I did what die-cut several medallions with the Eastern Medallion Thinlits Dies in Very Vanilla Cardstock and attach them to Very Vanilla Cardstock.

A splash of color in the middle of all that Very Vanilla was added from die-cutting with two more of the fabulous Eastern Medallion dies in Tranquil Tide Cardstock. Tranquil Tide is one of the 2017-2019 In Colors that will be available in the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalog. The color and die-cut are striking.

Stampin' Up! Eastern Beauty Card by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.com

Like the color accent on the Tranquil Tide die-cut? It’s one of the coordinating Gold Vinyl Stickers from the, you guessed it, upcoming 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalog.

Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock used for my card base will be available to order in the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalog. This is especially exciting because we’ve very much appreciated having the heavier weight Whisper White Thick Cardstock to use for our card bases when desiring white cardstock and also for watercoloring. Have you wished for Very Vanilla Cardstock too?

Ornate & Elegant Stampin’ Up! Eastern Beauty Card

Stampin' Up! Eastern Beauty Card by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.comKeep it simple, like my May Eastern Beauty thank you card, or go more ornate with the advance purchase opportunity of the new Eastern Palace Premier Bundle from the upcoming 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalog.

Your enthusiasm to order and start using the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle is remarkable! Perhaps remarkable isn’t quite accurate. Once you see what all you get with the specially priced bundle with bonus products! Let me show you a small sampling on my elegant and ornate Eastern Beauty Card.

Impressive are the Eastern Medallion Thinlins Dies. They are unlike any die set Stampin’ Up! has ever had. You can use them alone, use them to die-cut a design into cardstock without fully cutting them out or create medallions, as in my card seen here.

Stampin' Up! Eastern Beauty Card by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.com

 

Behind the gorgeous medallion, you’ll see two colors peeking through, the new Tranquil Tide and Dapper Denim from the coordinating Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! Eastern Beauty Card by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.com

 

Also in the exclusive May 2017 only bundle are the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers and Mini Tassels Assortment. The tassels are nice, but those gold designs! Wait until you get your hands on them.

 

Stampin' Up! Eastern Beauty Card by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.com

 

The card base is Tranquil Tide, one of the three new 2017-2019 In Colors. Tranquil Tide Cardstock is one of three colors in the Eastern Palace Cardstock Pack that is included in the bundle. 

There is so much in this Eastern Palace Premier Bundle, my handmade greeting card didn’t show them all off. We just scratched the surface. So much more, so many more possibilities!

It gets even better. Get two bonus items to use with the Eastern Palace Bundle when purchased by May 31, 2017, in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com!
