Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies and Peaceful Moments Bundles

February 7, 2020

Ever pick up a stamp set, Designer Series Paper, or a new product that you just LOVE and draw a blank when it comes to creating something? That sometimes happens to me…that’s when I turn to Pinterest, Google images, and…the Stampin’ Up! Catalog! Look at the back page of the current Mini Catalog, and you will see this card:

I used the catalog sample card as my inspiration when I created my card below:

I stamped the images for the flower and the leaves from the Painted Poppies stamp set on the Pool Party card base with Pool Party ink. Then I die cut a Stitched Rectangle Die and stamped the Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo, and Daffodil Delight watercolor splotch images. I layered the white poppy die cuts from the Poppy Dies over the splotches and added a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set that I embossed in white. I tucked a few die cut leaves under the sentiment, too. To accent the black label, I added the pretty swirly lattice die cut on the left side of the rectangle and some retired black rhinestones.

In the end, a simple card to make when I had the inspiration from the catalog! Please don’t ever feel that you are any less creative if you get inspiration from other cards you see or catalog samples. I believe we are all in this together! I am ever so thankful for all the resources out there to spark my creativity.

Stampin’ Up! Under my Umbrella with Pleased as Punch DSP Sale-a-bration Coordination coming on Feb. 4th!

February 3, 2020

Oh my, the Stampin’ Up! Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper available tomorrow- February 4th -with Sale-a-bration Coordination is so cool!

I used the umbrella patterned paper on this card with the Under my Umbrella Bundle. There are 12 pieces of 12″ x 12″ paper in the Pleased as Punch DSP- 3 coordinate with the Umbrella Builder Punch, 3 with the Heart Punch Pack, 3 with the Tulip Builder Punch, and 3 with the Sale-a-bration offering Small Bloom Punch. And, of course, each piece has a great pattern on the back, too!

The Under My Umbrella Bundle includes the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set and the Umbrella Builder Punch. Line art images are fun to color and easy to customize for any occasion. The greetings in the stamp set work perfectly for thinking of you, sending love, wedding, or baby projects. Stamp the raindrop or flower images repeatedly to create backgrounds. You can also use them to decorate the umbrellas or the rain galoshes.

I paper-pieced my galoshes on the inside of the card with a pattern on the back of the Small Blooms pattern in the Pleased as Punch DSP. Just stamp the image of the galoshes on the Whisper White card base and then stamp the image on a scrap of the DSP. Fussy cut the galoshes along the stamped lines on the image and pop it on the image you stamped on the card base. I love how it is so easy because if you “cut outside or inside” the lines, it all works out when it is placed on the stamped image:)
