Blossoms in Bloom Birthday – Pals Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our theme is the “new 2020-2022 In Colors.” The Design Team is showcasing the new family of In Colors from the new catalog. We know you will love them as much as we do! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin Up Blossoms in Bloom Birthday Card Idea -Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

Let me tell you how much fun I had creating today’s card!  This card combines so many favorite new products as well as my all-time favorite technique…paper piecing.

My favorite new products featured on this card….

  • Blossoms in Bloom Bundle:  I stamped the sentiment from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set and used the Many Layered Blossoms dies to create the pretty dimensional flowers.
  •  Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder:  This created the subtly detailed Misty Moonlight background for the flowers.
  • 2020-2022 In-Colors:  These colors are so different yet worked so well together to create this floral spray.
  • 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots:  Enamel shapes or dots are a must have for me as they usually add just the right finishing touch to a card.  And when you have a coordinating color set, it’s even better!

Now for the paper piecing…

  • The Many Layered Blossoms die has two large flower dies that can be used alone or combined to make a more detailed image.  It also has four small flower dies, which I didn’t use on today’s card.

  • I first cut the outline in Cinnamon Cider card stock and glued it to the Misty Moonlight card stock which was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Then I used the more detailed die and cut it three more times, using Just Jade, Bumble Bee and Magenta Madness card stock.  And literally pieced them together like a puzzle.  I’m not sure why this technique is so relaxing for me, but it is and I’m always looking for opportunities to use it.
  • The sentiment is stamped on Bumble Bee card stock and heat embossed.
  • Lastly, a few Just Jade enamel dots are scattered around the card.

Stampin Up Flowers for Every Season Thank You Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

Happy Monday…It’s the last week of school and I’m ready for my official summer vacation to start!  Even though we’ve been home and distance learning since March, it seemed like a never-ending school year.  In the meantime, I have a pretty thank you card to share with you today.

Stampin Up Flowers for Every Season Thank You Card Idea -Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

The inside note slips out so the recipient can upcycle the card by slipping in another note.

Stampin Up Flowers for Every Season Thank You Card Idea- Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

If you’re thinking this card looks familiar, you are right.  I posted this card last week…

Stampin Up Flowers for Every Season Birthday Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

There are a few similarities between the two cards:  the pattern from the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper, the use of daisies, and the 2020-2022 In-Color card stock.  However, one not so evident similarity is the card fold.  Both cards are folded exactly the same. The card I posted previously was a gate fold with a portrait orientation. You can read all the details HERE.

Stampin Up Flowers for Every Season Thank You Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

On today’s card, I created a pocket with the narrower end to hold a removable note or it could even hold a gift card and is a landscape orientation.   This is the thank you card I’ll be sending to everyone who places an order this month.  I’ll leave the inside note blank so it can be re-used.

Flowers for Every Season Birthday Card

Stampin Up Flowers for Every Season Birthday Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

My card today is a cheerful, summery birthday card.  I have a few friends with June birthdays and want to create especially “happy” cards for them this year.  Although, I guess I always try to create those kinds of birthday cards but it was more so in my mind this year.  All the “pretty” on this card came from the new Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper.  As sad as I was to see the Best Dressed DSP retire, I was equally happy to see this new paper.  It’s so bright and cheerful and highlights the new In-Colors beautifully.  I’ve already made a few cards with it and keep coming up with more ideas…it’s that inspiring!

Flowers for Every Season #152486

Today’s card is a fun fold and came together surprisingly quickly…for me.  I’ll admit that I labor over some of these cards a little too much.  So when I create a card relatively quickly and I’m pleased with it, I’m pretty surprised.

Stampin Up Flowers for Every Season Birthday Card Idea Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

Here is the fold which would be consider a gate fold.  It’s a regular 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ card and it’s scored at 2 1/2″ and 6 1/2″ to create two front panels.

The daises that I like so much work really well with this paper, along with the new Celebrate Sunflowers stamps, which I’ll get to soon!

Stampin Up Flowers for Every Season Birthday Card Idea -Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

I did use a sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set for the inside along with a sentiment from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set.

You may have noticed that I’ve changed up my blogging format a little today and didn’t give measurements or directions like I usually do.  Instead of listing everything here, I’ve created a downloadable PDF for this project.  This will have all photos and card directions that can be viewed and printed out for future reference.

New Catalog Favorite – Forever Greenery

New catalog debut day is always fun and exciting.  It just never gets old for me and I hope you’re just as excited to see all the fun new products.  While I love and have purchased a lot of new products, I was especially drawn to the Forever Greenery Suite. This suite is full of beautiful foliage and was a nice change from all the floral sets.  I’ve seen so many beautiful cards created with this set already. Throughout the month, I’ll be featuring this set often and also offering free tutorials.  Come take a look at today’s card…

Details

  • Dry Emboss the Soft Sea Foam card panel using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. This embossing folder is going to be so useful.  I love the subtle pattern.
  • Glue the Soft Sea Foam cardstock to the Just Jade cardstock and adhere both to the Whisper White card base.
  • Glue the Forever Greenery DSP panel to the thin Just Jade cardstock panel and adhere both to the left side of the card front.
  • Using a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, cut a label from the 2020-2022 In-Color DSP in Just Jade.  Cut another label from Just Jade cardstock and trim the top and bottom of the label.
  • Adhere the label to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp the sentiment, from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set on a piece of Whisper White cardstock with Versa Mark ink and heat emboss with black embossing powder.
  • Flag the sentiment.
  • Using a die from the Forever Flourishing Dies, cut and layer.  These are glued to the label.
  • Lastly, a small enamel dot is added to the center of the leaf spray.

  • The inside sentiment is from the Beautiful Friendship stamp set and is stamped      in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
  • Strips of Just Jade, Whisper White and DSP are added to the left side.

  • I coordinated the envelope by adding the same DSP to the flap.

So, now that I’ve shared my favorite suite from the new catalog, I would love to know what some of your favorites are.  Please leave a comment as I bet some of your favorites are also mine!
