Stamp With Me - First Frost Wreath Card


I paired retiring Stampin' Up! products with new products coming in the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalog for today's card. I'm very happy with how this one turned out. You can learn how to make the card in the video below.


The first retiring items I used were the First Frost Stamp Set and their coordinating dies, Frosted Bouquets Dies. I have always loved this stamp set and dies! They're beautiful! The greeting came from this stamp set, too.


Another item that retiring is the GORGEOUS Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper (DSP). This is one of my favorite DSP packs, and I'm really going to miss it! It's on sale, too! There's a link to this DSP in the supply list below. Hurry! All retiring items are available while supplies last or until June 2, 2020 (whichever comes first).


The last retiring item I used was the Pearlized Doilies pack. These doilies are so shimmery in person! I love how the back is a matte white, so you can make them any color you want!


How about that gold wreath? This is a new product that will be in the upcoming Stampin' Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. It's hard to tell in the picture, but they're gold metal-like hoops. I have so many project ideas going through my head for these beauties! It's going to be hard to pick which one to do next! I show how to attach them to the card, and how to add flowers to them, in the video below. It's easier than you think!


I also used the brand new Greenery Embossing Folders from the upcoming annual catalog. This is a set of TWO embossing folders, and I used both of them on the card. Aren't they wonderful?!


I stamped two stamps from the First Frost Stamp Set onto the inside panel of the card. If you re-create the card with me, you can definitely add more...like some flowers and a greeting.


Dimensions:
  • Petal Pink:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base), 1-5/8" x 5-1/4" (strip), 3-1/8" x 4-1/8" (Old Olive mat), & a scrap piece at least 2-1/2" z 2-1/2" in size (greeting circle)
  • Old Olive:  3" x 4" (embossed rectangle)
  • Whisper White:  1-1/2" x 5-1/4" (embossed strip), 8-1/2" x 1-1/4" (flowers & leaves), 4" x 5-1/4" (inside of card)
  • Perennial Essence DSP:  4" x 5-1/4"
  • Pearlized Doilies:  1 doily
  • Gold Hoop Embellishments:  1 hoop

Facebook Live Replay - Peaceful Poppies, Ornate Garden, & Honey Bee Cards


Happy Monday, everyone! Today's post showcases the cards I made in my weekly Facebook/YouTube Live last Friday. I featured some items that are retiring from the Peaceful Poppies Suite in the Jan-June 2020 Mini Catalog on the first card, the Brand New Ornate Garden Suite from the upcoming annual catalog that you can order now on the second card, and the retiring Honey Bee Bundle from the Mini Catalog on the third.


I had so much fun using the retiring Peaceful Poppies Elements and Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper (DSP). Using these two items together made a super quick and pretty card. If you want these two products, you'll need to hurry! They're only available while supplies last or until June 2, 2020...whichever comes first.

I paired the with the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set in the same suite. Thankfully, this stamp set will be in the new annual catalog.


In the video below, I show one of the ways you can use the white embossed images, watercolor paper die-cuts in the Peaceful Poppies Elements pack. I also show how to color the vellum die-cuts to match your projects. (If click on the above pictures, you'll be able to see larger images of them.)


Dimensions:
  • Poppy Parade:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Whisper White:  4" x 5-1/4" (base layer)
  • Peaceful Poppies DSP:  4" x 2"
  • Peaceful Poppies Elements:  1 watercolor paper flower, two vellum flowers, and three vellum leaves (see picture for the ones needed)

My second card features the new Ornate Garden Suite. I used both bundles from this suite, along with the DSP and embossing folder. The flower and frame die-cut are part of the Ornate Style Bundle. This bundle includes the Ornate Style Stamp Set and the Ornate Layers Dies. The greeting and border die-cuts are from the Ornate Thanks Bundle. This bundle includes the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set  and the Ornate Borders Dies. Purchasing them as bundles saves you 10%! The beautiful embossing folder is called Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder, and the DSP is called Ornate Garden Specialty DSP.


All of the items will be in the upcoming Stampin' Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, but you can purchase them NOW! To see all of the products in the Ornate Garden Suite, CLICK HERE.

I even used a new In Color...Bumblebee. It's the pretty yellow card base. You'll be able to get the new In Colors on June 3, 2020! If you would like to get them earlier like I did, along with some other new products from the upcoming annual catalog, you can! Join my Friendly Stampers Team today! You can find out more about joining my team by CLICKING HERE.


Dimensions:
  • Bumblebee:  5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (card base)
  • Mint Macaron:  5-1/4" x 4" (embossed layer)
  • Early Espresso:  2-1/4" x 3-3/4" (frame)
  • Whisper White:  1-3/4" x 3-1/4" (flower), 2-3/8" x 1" (greeting), & 5-1/4" x 1" (border)
  • Ornate Garden Specialty DSP:  5-1/4" x 2"

The last card I made in the video below features the retiring Honey Bee Bundle from the Mini Catalog and Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP from the current annual catalog.

I'm so sad that the Honey Bee Bundle is retiring! I've had so much fun making cards with this bundle. This one is a fun shaker card. I messed up a little bit when I made the card in the video. I forgot to attach the honeycomb die-cut at the right time. Here's how you're supposed to do it:

Put glue onto the back of the honeycomb, and attach it to the top, center of the window sheet. Turn the Whisper White/hive opening piece over, and put SNAIL Adhesive all around the edge of the opening like I did in the video. With the honeycomb on top, attach the window sheet to the piece, making sure to center the honeycomb within the opening. Then, put the Foam Adhesive strips around the opening like I did in the video. After that, the video is right.


The sequins I used in the shaker card are the Peaceful Poppies Sequins from the Mini Catalog. I'm sorry to say that these sequins are retiring, too. I love all of the colors in this sequin pack. Remember, all retiring products are while supplies last or until June 2, 2020! Get your favorites now, before they're gone forever!


Dimensions:
  • Basic Black:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base) & 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" (hive mat)
  • Whisper White:  4" x 5-1/4" (embossed layer), 3" x 3" (hive), 3-1/2" x 2-1/4" (bees), 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" (stamped hive)
  • Window Sheet:  2-3/4" x 2-3/4"
  • Gold Foil Sheets:  2-1/2" x 2" (honeycomb) & (2) 4" x 1/2" (DSP mat)
  • Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP:  4" x 2"


If you are reading this post in an email feed, you'll need to go to the original post to see the supply list.
Peaceful Poppies Elements Card:  Note:  The Aqua Painters aren't listed, because they're sold out. The Water Painters I talk about in the video will be available June 3, 2020.

Stamp With Me - Ornate Garden Suite Wedding Card


I know we're all excited about the new Stampin' Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog (I sure am), and I'm so glad that Stampin' Up! gave all of us a chance to get the beautiful Ornate Garden Suite products early! This suite is GORGEOUS! Every card I've made with it looks so beautiful!


I used three of the products in this suite...Ornate Style Stamp Set, Ornate Borders Dies, and the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. You can see everything in the Ornate Garden Suite by CLICKING HERE.


I decided to use a much softer color combo for today's card. I'm going to have to remember this color combo. I really like how they go together.


I used a different greeting stamp set on this Ornate Garden card, so I could make it a wedding card. I used the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set from the current annual catalog. There are so many greetings in this set, and you can see all of them in the video below. I'm so glad that this stamp set will be in the new annual catalog, too!


Vanilla/cream-colored wedding cards are very popular right now, and you can see why with this card. I love the Very Vanilla card base, embossed layer, and rose border die-cut together. They're so elegant looking!


How did I get the white outline? I heat-embossed the image with White Stampin' Emboss Powder! I stamped the image on Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, because I knew I was going to watercolor with my Aqua Painters. This paper makes it so easy to get some dark shading in, and blend the shading with the lighter shades. I show how to do this all in the video below.


I added one last "vanilla" item to this card. See the pearls? Don't they look so pretty on that rose border die-cut? The pearls come from the Pearls Basic Jewels.


Of course, I had to decorate the inside of this beautiful card. It's just too special not to decorate the inside. I did a simple border with one of the flower stamps in the Ornate Style Stamp Set.


Dimensions:
  • Thick Very Vanilla:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2"
  • Very Vanilla:  (2) 4" x 5-1/4" (embossed layer & inside of card), 1-1/4" x 5-1/4" (rose border), & 2-1/4" x 1" (greeting)
  • Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper:  3-1/4" x 4-3/4"
If you are reading this post in an email feed, you'll need to go to the original post to see the supply list.
Note:  Aqua Painters have sold out, but don't worry! We'll have Water Painters in the New Annual Catalog on June 3, 2020. They'll have three different tips (instead of 2), and they'll only be $12 ($5 less than Aqua Painters)!
