Pals Blog Hop – Celebrate Sunflowers Fun Fold Birthday

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team is showcasing “Gifts From the Garden.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

My card share today features one of my new favorite bundles, Celebrate Sunflowers.  I’ve been creating with these products pretty much non-stop for the last week and have a lot of projects to share soon.  This set offers everything that I love to create with:  large floral images with coordinating smaller images, versatile sentiments in a pretty font, dies that coordinate with the stamped images as well as stand-alone intricate dies, and images that are fun to color.  Yep, it basically has it all!

I’m calling today’s card a Z-Fold plus card.  Plus because it has an added panel for an inside sentiment like a regular A2 card.  I used two patterns from the 2020-2021 In-Color 6 x 6 DSP collection.  The big, bold sunflower was stamped in black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder, then colored with a variety of Stampin’ Blends.  After cutting the flower and leaves with the coordinating Sunflower`Dies, I glued them to Basic Black card stock and cut a border around them.  These are glued to the front panel.

Opened up the card reveals the sentiment which is also heat embossed, hand cut, matted and glued to the first inside panel.  Since when opened the large panel is blank, I stamped and masked a collection of smaller sunflowers and colored them with Stampin’ Blends.  The rhinestones were colored with a black Sharpie.

Here is the inside panel…the sentiment is a combination of two stamped images from the Fancy Phrases stamp set.  It’s a great set for coordinating sentiments.  It also has a couple sketchy floral images.

My sister has a July birthday and I’m planning on delivering this card to her with a bouquet of real sunflowers.  I’m looking forward to seeing her, if even at a 6 ft. distance.  We live close to each other but have not spent any time together since March.  We do talk on the phone for hours at a time but it’s still not the same!  I’ll be back tomorrow with more projects featuring the Celebrate Sunflower bundle.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop, which will be August 12th when our theme is “My Happiest Season.” The Design Team will showcase projects inspired by their favorite seasonal time of the year. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft room.

Arrange a Wreath with a Twist

For today’s card, I used the Arrange a Wreath Bundle and gave it a little twist, thus giving it more versatility.  I really like sets that can be altered and used in a little more unconventional ways.  It’s a way to create added value to your purchase.  As a big fan of wreaths in general and especially paper ones that I can create myself, I was thrilled to see the Arrange a Wreath bundle in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  This bundle will take you through a year of holidays, as well as, almost any occasion.  That’s a big bang for the buck!

Arrange a Wreath Bundle #154109
Images©Stampin’ Up!
Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

This card is a general “Just Because” card to send some kindness and hopefully make someone’s day.  And I had just that person in mind while creating it.

Materials & Measurements

Whisper White Thick card base:   4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″

Gorgeous Grape card stock: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″

Whisper White card stock: 4″ x 5 1/4″

Details

  • Glue the Gorgeous Grape card stock to the Whisper White thick card base.
  • Emboss the Whisper White panel using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder and glue to the Gorgeous Grape panel.
  • Emboss a 7/8″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Layer this onto a strip of Gorgeous Grape card stock measuring 1″ x 4″.
  • Position the strips in the center of the card and glue.

  • Stamp the wreath in Old Olive ink and cut.  I used my Scan n’ Cut to cut the wreath since there is no coordinating die for this image.  It could also easily be hand cut since just the outside is cut.
  • Once the wreath was stamped and cut, I used my trimmer to cut it in 1/2 and glued each half above and below the center strips creating an oval from the round wreath.
  • I embellished the wreath with a few (retired) Noble Peacock rhinestones.
  • The sentiment is from the Country Home stamp set and is heat embossed.
  • Stampin’ Up! no longer carries black embossing powder so to get the same look, I stamped the sentiment using my Versa-Fine ink pad and clear embossing powder.
  • The sentiment is cut with an oval from the Layering Ovals dies and matted with another oval from the Stitched Shapes dies in Gorgeous Grape.
  • The sentiment is adhered to the center of the oval wreath with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • I left the inside blank to write a personal note and embossed the envelope flap with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.

It was very easy to alter the wreath to create a totally different shape.  Here’s a more traditional take on the Arrange a Wreath bundle that features the Wreath Builder dies.  You can read the details HERE

CASEing Coast to Coast : Arrange a Wreath Hello

It’s time for another installment of CASEing Coast to Coast with Karen Hallam at Karen’s Stamping Habit.  Each month, Karen, who lives in CA and I, here in PA, alternate creating a card for the other to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit).  We’ve been doing this monthly exercise for a while now and it continues to be fun and challenging.  This month, Karen created a beautiful card featuring the Arrange a Wreath bundle from the new Annual Catalog…

I really liked Karen’s color combination and the Designer Series Paper pattern she chose as her background.  I think the combination of colors and pattern produced a very pretty and sophisticated birthday card…don’t you?

So, in an effort to show the versatility of this bundle, I created a summery, homespun Hello card…

Stampin Up Arrange a Wreath Hello Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

As soon as I saw the Arrange a Wreath bundle in the 2020-2021 Catalog, I knew it was coming to my craft room.  I love wreaths of all kind, especially those I can create myself.  Stampin’ Up! has had several wreath stamps and dies throughout the years and I’ve bought every one and kept every one!  And now Arrange a Wreath will be added to that collection.

Arrange a Wreath Bundle #154109

Materials & Measurements

  • Whisper White thick card base:  5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Real Red card stock:  5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
  • Whisper White card stock:  5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Real Red strip: 2 1/4″ x 1″ and 1″ x 1/2″
  • Basic Black strip:  2 1/4″ x 7/8″ and 7/8″ x 1/2″

Details

  • Glue the Real Red panel to the Whisper White card base.
  • Using the Buffalo Check stamp, stamp the Whisper White panel in black ink and adhere to the Real Red panel.
  • Cut the wreath elements in Pear Pizazz and Whisper White card stock, and layer.  Don’t glue this down yet.

Stampin Up Arrange a Wreath Hello Card Idea- Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

  • On the larger Basic Black card stock strip, stamp the sentiment, from the Good Morning, Magnolia stamp set with Versa Mark ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder.
  • Mat sentiment strip to the Real Red strip.
  • Mat the smaller Basic Black and Real Red strips.
  • Position the wreath and before gluing to the card front, then position and glue the sentiment strips on either side of the positioned wreath.  You could probably get away with not adding the small strip as it’s hardly visible.
  • After the sentiment strips are positioned and glued, glue the wreath to the card front.
  • Stamp five flowers in Real Red ink, cut with the Wreath Builder dies and arrange on left side of the wreath and adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I colored 5 rhinestones with Stampin’ Blends and added them to the flower centers.
  • Stamp a small butterfly from the Butterfly Gala stamp set, color with Stampin’ Blends and punched with the Butterfly Duet punch.  Glue to a flower.

Tasteful Touches Birthday Card

Stampin Up Tasteful Touches Birthday Card Idea -Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

Hello…I hope you had an enjoyable weekend. I inked up a new stamp set this weekend.  Tasteful Touches is a cling stamp set in the 2020-2021 annual catalog.  It’s available as a bundle along with the Tasteful Labels dies (which I didn’t use here but are nonetheless so useful).

Tasteful Touches Bundle #154098

I have a lot of measurements to give you for today’s card, so here we go…

Materials & Measurements (from the card base up)

  • Cinnamon Cider card base:  8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Flowers for Every Season DSP:  4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Cinnamon Cider card stock:  3 5/8″ x 2 3/4″
  • Flowers for Every Season DSP:  3 1/2″ x 2 5/8″
  • Cinnamon Cider card stock:  2 7/8″ x 2 1/2″
  • Bumble Bee card stock:  2 3/4″ x 2 3/8″
  • Bumble Bee card stock:  4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)
  • Whisper White card stock: 3 3/4″ x 5″ (inside)

Details

  • Glue the floral DSP and the Bumble Bee card stock to the coordinating Cinnamon Cider mat.
  • Stamp the sentiment, from the Beautiful Friendship stamp set, in Versa Mark and heat emboss with white embossing powder.
  • Glue each mat as shown. Do not glue the larger piece of DSP to the card base yet.
  • Wrap a piece of 1/4″ Cinnamon Cider ribbon around the card front and secure.
  • Glue the card front to the card base.

Stampin Up Tasteful Touches Birthday Card Idea- Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

  • Stamp the floral image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set twice in Bumble Bee ink and hand cut.
  • Lightly color the flowers using Stampin’ Blends: Daffodil Delight Light, Cinnamon Cider Light.
  • I brushed the flowers with Clear Wink of Stella.  But honestly, it didn’t make that much difference, so this is completely optional.
  • Adhere the flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Add three Cinnamon Cider enamel dots to the upper right corner.

Stampin Up Tasteful Touches Birthday Card Ideas - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

  • The inside sentiment is from the Timeless Tropical stamp set and is stamped in Cinnamon Cider ink.
  • A strip of DSP and Cinnamon Cider card stock create a pretty border along the bottom.
  • I coordinated the side of the envelope using the same DSP and card stock.  This is a pretty way to decorate the envelope with using scraps. It’s always a bonus to use up those small pieces of DSP!

Stampin Up Tasteful Touches Birthday Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

This is one of my favorite card layouts as I really like how you can take advantage of the coordinated DSP patterns to easily come up with a pretty card.  I didn’t even mind all the cutting!!!
