I made a CAS card using the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone stamp set and the Special Days Dies.
At first look you may think it is a birthday card…
But it’s a Get Well card cause the balloons are filled with HEAL-IUM !
Isn’t that just the cutest sentiment?
This set is just so sweet…
I love the little critters and how easy it is to use the two step stamping to color in the animals, balloons, and flowers. This set can cover a birthday, a thank you as well as Get Well wishes.
When I saw this photo in the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog with those scissors, I thought…
awe, why aren’t there any dies?!?!
Well, little did we know that the Sale-a-bration Coordination Release would bring us…
the Stampin’ Up! Special Days Dies!!!
See the multiple dies to cut more at one time and that neat word bubble?
A super quick and easy card for you today using the Stampin’ Up! My Meadow Stamp Set.
I love scene building stamp sets. There is no limit to what you can do…and if you are stumped…look to the Mini Catalog or Pinterest to get inspired! This simple scene was easy to picture in my head and put to paper. I am looking forward to making some more beautiful scenes with this set. Take a look at all the images to work with in creating a lovely card.
Here are some sample cards from the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog:
I combined two bundles in the Mini Catalog to make this card. I love the mix of neutral colors with the pop of pink and green. The great background lattice and the flowers/leaves come from the Birthday Jubilee Bundle.
There is also another lattice design in the die set that has an opening in the middle.
The other images in the Birthday Jubilee are so sweet, too.
I love the coordinating single flower and the flower spray:)
The sentiment and the labels come from the So Sentimental Bundle.
I love white embossing on black paper, don’t you?
I did cut down my card base to be 4-1/4″ x 5-1/8″ instead of 5-1/2″, and also cut my Basic Black panel down to 4″ x 4-7/8″. This just seemed to work well:)
I played around Saturday morning with the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Stamp Set along with the NEW Nature’s Thoughts Dies that came out with the February Sale-A-Bration Coordination Release. Do you see another new thing on this card?
The other item is the NEW Embossed So Very Vellum coming out on March 3 in the Second Release of Sale-a-Bration gifts! It is just beautiful! There are three colors featured in the 12 pack of 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper- Pool Party, Purple Posy, and Soft Seafoam. The So Very Vellum also looked great on the same color cardstock but I thought it really popped on the white card base. I tied a double bow with the Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled seam Binding Ribbon.
The Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts is such a beautiful stamp set and the Nature’s Thoughts Dies are perfect to die cut the images!
Take a look at a video put out by the Stampin’ Up! Home Office featuring
the So Very Vellum Specialty DSP:
Please note: The Purple Posy Classic Ink Pad is NO LONGER available but Purple Posy is still available in cardstock, the Stampin’ Write In Color 2019-2021 Markers, Stampin’ Blends, and other embellishment offerings.
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:)
