Stampin Up Rooted in Nature bundle

This is one of the best stamp set bundles in the entire catalog, in my opinion. The Rooted in Nature bundle is absolutely beautiful and can be used to create cards for any occasion at all. Its also perfect for creating cards for the special men in your life.

We created this monochromatic card at my team meeting earlier this month. Soft suede is the perfect color for this greeting card, because it lends itself to the colors of nature.

The card is the basic 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" card. The tree and leave cardstock pieces are 3 x 2 and 3 1/4 x 2 1/4 respectively.

The designer series paper is the new Natures Poem that coordinates perfectly with this suite. You'll notice that I embossed the leaves on this card. I did that with the framelits from the Natures Roots coordinating dies. I used the new Big Shot Embossing mats to create this look.

I had to use the beautiful Leaves Trinkets that are part of this suite because they are shiny and add the perfect accent to this greeting card. I attached the leaf with a glue dot. The Natures Twine looks so rustic rolled up under the 1" circle punch. Both were attached with dimensionals.

This set is a classic and was actually designed to coordinate with the ever popular Lovely As A Tree samp set that has been in the catalog for as long as I've been a demonstrator. Thats over 20 years!

Hope you loved this soft suede monochromatic beauty.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Until the next time...

Layering Alphabet in "Pinks"- Yay!

Pink is my absolute most favorite color, so I wanted to design a card made with the Layering Alphabet dies in various shades of pink.

I decided on a birthday card with the word "yay!" I had a lot of fun designing this card. It not only uses my favorite color, but it also has ribbons and sparkle too!

IMG_2667

The colors that I used on this card are lovely lipstick, melon mambo, flirty flamingo and petal pink, inks and cardstock. I also used basic black and whisper white cardstocks.

I love how it turned out!

IMG_2666

I cut each color of cardstock to a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece and then cut out the letters. I attached it to a basic black card measuring the same. To attach the Iridescent Sequins, I just dotted liquid multi purpose glue in the spots that I wanted to place the sequins. I then placed the sequins on top of the dollop of glue.

IMG_2662

The black satin ribbon is tied around the entire card, with a little white bakers twine bow tied on top and attached with a glue dot. I also used the mini black sequin trim to add some extra glimmer to the card.

You'll notice that the word "celebrate" is stamped on a cute little label. I die cut this with one of the dies in the new Stitched Label framelits set. The word, celebrate is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.

And there you have it! Another fabulous greeting card, made with the Lined Alphabet stamp set and Layering Alphabet framelit bundle.

Layering Alphabet - You had me at "hello"

I've been eager to share another of my Layering Alphabet / Lined Alphabet cards with you. This one is sort of a copy of the one in the Stampin Up catalog. I did make a few tweaks to give it my own spin.

I love the colors on this card. I used Night of Navy, Blueberry Bushel, Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, Lemon Lime Twist, and Pineapple Punch.

IMG_2688

I stamped the tone on tone flowers in the background with the Varied Vases and Pick a Pennant stamp sets. The adorable hearts are cut with my new favorite framelits, The Stitched Label framelits.

IMG_2683

I used the Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon on this one and the one below, I used the new Pineapple Punch grosgrain ribbon. I can't decide which I like better...

IMG_2681

The words, Friend and You are from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.

This is a close up of those adorable little stitched hearts.

Here's a look at both cards, side by side.

I also used the "negative" pieces that I had left over after I cut out the letters for the cards above and made this card from the left over pieces.

Black and Gold- Share What You Love

I have'nt seen many Stampin Up card samples using the pretty little yellow flowered designer paper from the Share What You Love paper pack. I think this is such a pretty and delicate design, so I had to make a card with it.

I used so saffron and very vanilla cardstock with some black design elements. The pearlized doily is also from the Share What You Love bundle. The Share What You Love bundles are on special, the month of May only. So, don't forget to order yours!

IMG_2218

I punched a 2 1/4" circle of so saffron cardstock and stamped it with the flowers from the Love What You Do stamp set in the same color, for a tone on tone look.  Do you recognize the other punch? Its the Tailored Tag punch from the Occasions Catalog. It was the perfect size to stamp my spray of flowers, which I stamped in crumb cake ink and colored in with a so saffron marker.

IMG_2219

The polka dot ribbon and black faceted dots are new items that will be in the brand new Stampin Up Annual Catalog, in June. Don't you just LOVE that gorgeous ribbon!? I used the Tailored Tag punch to also punch out a piece of velum and basic black cardstock to layer behind the flowers. Layering is so much fun and adds so much dimension and detail to the card.

IMG_2220

Don't miss out on ordering one of the Share What You Love bundles this month. I guarantee it will be one of your all time favorites!

Until the next time...

Embossed- Lovely Flower

I've got another card from the Share What You Love Bundle to share with you today. I've used the Lovely Floral emboss folder for the main focal point on this card.

I saw this idea on Pinterest, from Cindy Elam. I thought it was so soft and pretty and really showcased this beautiful Lovely Floral emboss folder.

  IMG_2215

The twine, tiny clip, tag and self adhesive silver rose embellishments are from the Share What You Love embellishment kit, that's included (for free) in the two of three Share What You Love bundles.

To color the embossed flower, I simply used sponge daubers dipped in the ink pads and rubbed over the image. Rich razzleberry, mint macron, balmy blue and grapefruit groves inks were used.

I spelled my daughters name using the Make A Difference stamp set also included in two of the three bundles. The Make a Difference stamp set has a whopping 143 stamps in it! Its so awesome!!

Love What You Do, Share What You Love

I wanted to share another card that we made at Class last week. Its from the Share What You Love bundle thats on special this month. The stamp set is called, Love What You Do. I wanted to make a card that showcased many of the items in the Share What You Love bundle. I used a lot of the items, but certainly not all of them. There's just too much stuff in this bundle!

It turned out to be a delicate, pretty greeting card.

IMG_2414

I adore the Share What You Love designer paper. Its the prettiest paper that I have ever known Stampin Up to carry. I used very vanilla for the card base and a little circle of so saffron cardstock as well.

IMG_2416

I stamped the small vanilla circle (made with the 2" circle punch) with so saffron ink. I stamped off onto my scratch paper first and then onto the circle to give it a softer color. I did the same on the flowers, using rich razzleberry ink.

IMG_2415

The new pearl doilies are just stunning- can you see the shimmer?

IMG_2418

Everyone at class got to make 3 of these cards and I gave them 3 different pieces of the designer paper. Its just so pretty, that I wanted them to be able to use as many of the beautiful patterns as they could.

The little bow is made with the new rich razzleberry velvet ribbon. So lux!

IMG_2420

We added the new Share What You Love pearls to the card and stamped the greeting in the new mint macaron ink.

IMG_2419

That's all 3 of them. I think the girls really loved this card. Its so beautiful but so easy to make.
