Celebrate her with a Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blossoms Card

Stampin' Up! Birthday Blossoms Stamp SetCelebrate her with a feminine birthday card made with the Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set.

The clusters of sweet blooms are a pretty accent to the larger flowers. You love to learn you will not need to hand cut those flowers either. They coordinate with the Pansy Punch that also punches out all the flowers in the Stampin’ Up! Flower Shop Stamp Set. When punches and/or dies work with more than one stamp set, it’s a great way to stretch the investment in our tools.

The flower clusters and large flowers were all stamped with Blackberry Bliss Classic Stampin’ Pad ink. Blackberry Bliss was also used with an Aqua Painter to watercolor the flowers. Blackberry Bliss is dark enough to give the lines definition, while at the same time, giving the flowers a softer look than if first stamped in black.

Stampin' Up! Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set

The small cluster of flowers were shaded with Mint Macaron Classic Stampin’ Pad ink. Again, using an Aqua Painter. Smoky Slate was briefly considered. It would have looked very nice with the Blackberry Bliss, but don’t you like how it looks with the Mint Macaron?

A strip of Mint Macaron 1″ Lace Dotted Lace Trim was the finishing touch for this handmade birthday card.

It’s a sweetheart of a card!

Stampin' Up! Groovy Love Stamp SetLeafing through the 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Catalog did you notice this sweetheart of a card using the Stampin’ Up! Groovy Love Stamp Set? Know what else it uses? Two of the current Weekly Deals for a sweetheart of a discount!

If you like saving 25% on Stampin’ Up! products, you’ll want to order the Sweetheart Punch and Gold Glimmer Paper by August 31.

All the supplies used to make this card are pictured lower on the page. First I want to point out something that will not be obvious from looking at the photo of the card. Because the Whisper White Cardstock is attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals, I used the new Thick Whisper White Cardstock for more body. It has good body and looks rich.

If you like saving money, what are feelings about free stuff? You can get a sampling of the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog embellishments with my Holiday Catalog Sneak Get Special! Through August 31, place your $65 or more product order in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com, and I’ll send the Holiday Catalog embellishments with your thank you card!

Simple, yet so pretty, Stampin’ Up! You’ve Got This card

Stampin' Up! You've Got This CardThis Stampin’ Up! You’ve Got This card is so pretty. You first see the beautiful flower. Look at how pretty it is just stamped without coloring it.

The Delightful Dijon and black are stunning together. When I first saw Delightful Dijon, I thought it would be beautiful for our fall paper craft projects. Then I made my June thank you cards and received this lovely handmade card from my upline. My thought immediately changed. It’s a color we can enjoy and use all year long!

The newspaper print paper from the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper is perfection with this handmade card. It looks authentic, but because it’s Designer Paper, you won’t get black ink on your fingers. That’s a big plus.

Delightful Dijon 1″ Lace Trim is quite attractive pinched with the black ribbon. It also allows the flower to not be covered by the ribbon.

The Basic Black 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon was retired before I had a chance to post this pretty handmade card. I looked for another ribbon that could be used in its place because surely others will want to make this card too.

Card made with Stampin' Up! You've Got This Stamp Set

The new Very Vanilla Thick Baker’s Twine was used instead. Didn’t think it was possible, but I think I like it this way even better. Which do you prefer?

Such a pretty card, yet simple to make. That’s a beautiful thing.

The supplies to make the You’ve Got This card are pictured below and linked into my online store www.shopwithshelly.com to order the supplies you need now. Make sure your order is $65 or more (before shipping and sales tax) to get your sampling of eight of Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog embellishments with my Holiday Catalog Sneak Get Special!

Mr. Crab says “Have a snappy day!”

Stampin' Up! You're Sublime CardNow what else is snappy? The color combination for my Stampin’ Up! You’re Sublime card!

The card base is Tip Top Taupe, one of the five new 2015-2017 In Colors. A marvelous neutral color that works well with many other colors.

The crab was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad then watercolored with Real Red Classic Stampin’ Pad ink. The sand under his feet is Tip Top Taupe.

He’s then layered onto Chocolate Chip Cardstock for my Tip Top Taupe, Real Red, Chocolate Chip color combo.

An uplifting birthday card with Celebrate Today

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Today Card IdeaGive your handmade birthday cards a lift with the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Today Stamp Set. Balloons are always a festive way to celebrate.

Celebrate Today lets you easily turn a balloon into a hot air balloon. Look how fantastic the hot air balloon looks floating in the clouds.

The clouds were made with two different punches – the Cupcake Builder Punch for the small cloud and the Tree Builder Punch for the larger clouds.

All the stamps used on my handmade birthday card are included in the set. There are 17 stamps in all. A lot more occasions to celebrate and card designs to be made.

How about that bright, cheery green used for the balloon? It’s Cucumber Crush from the 2015-2017 In Colors.

The green striped paper is also in Cucumber Crush and is from the 2015-2017 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack. The coordinating Stampin’ Up! color products sure make it easy to create fabulous looking handmade cards.

The color coordination continues with the ribbon wrapped around the bottom right corner is the Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon. It coordinates with the Daffodil Delight ink used for the basket and Daffodil Delight Cardstock partially framing the Whisper White layer.

The blue button is Island Indigo from the Brights Designer Buttons and coordinates with the ink used for the flags and Island Indigo Cardstock card base.

Corner Garden is pretty enough to be used all by itself

Stampin' Up! Corner Garden in Blackberry BlissLast night I made a card for the Stamping Playground with the Stampin’ Up! Corner Garden Stamp Set. And this afternoon made another. I can’t show you the handmade cards because they are for the eyes only of my Stamping Playground Friends.

But before moving on with my card design, I was struck by how pretty the Corner Garden is all by itself. It fills the card with beautiful flowers for a clean and simple card.

After completing my card for the Stamping Playground, I cut several sheets of the 8-1/2″ x 11″ Thick Whisper White Cardstock in half with my Stampin’ Trimmer. Making a stack of the single color stamped image will take very little time. I used the top portion of the stamp for my little something something in the lower left corner. And the same for a coordinating Whisper White Medium Envelope.

The Thick Whisper White is perfect for white clean and simple card bases. It’s still the finish of the regular Whisper White Cardstock that is designed for beautifully stamped images but in 100-lb weight versus 80-lb for Whisper White. Sturdy enough for added layers or to stand tall all alone.

Instead of stamping in the same color over and over, I cleaned my stamp with Stampin’ Mist sprayed onto my Stampin’ Scrub. Nice, large area for rubbing back and forth to remove all the ink before using a new color.

My colors? The regal tones of the 2014-2016 In Colors – Blackberry Bliss (pictured above), Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey,

Stampin' Up! Corner Garden in Mossy Meadow and Delightful Dijon

Tangelo Twist and Lost Lagoon.

Stampin' Up! Corner Garden in Tangelo Twist and  Lost Lagoon

There’s plenty of room if a greeting is desired or beautiful just as they are. This is quite different from a silver anniversary card I made with the Corner Garden Stamp.

Isn’t it fun to play around with our stamps and creating handmade cards that range from clean and simple to incorporating techniques? It’s even more fun when you have friends that share in your enthusiasm and to show off your cards to. That’s what you get when you join the Stamping Playground! It’s a membership community for those that like to have fun while they learn, create and share.

As if having an incredible sweet and talented group of stampers willing to share and support each other, every week I add a new exclusive video tutorial to the growing video library and take part in the Playground Activity of the Week. That’s why I made a card last night with Corner Garden.
