Flowers for Every Season (?) Masculine Card

Stampin Up Flowers for Every Season Masculine card idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

I’ve put an unexpected twist on the Flowers for Every Season 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper today.  I need to make a congratulations card for my Son-in-Law, Mike, who just received a big job promotion.  I knew I wanted to make him a shirt & tie card like the ones I made HERE.  Since I’ve only bought a select few of the new DSP collections, I wasn’t sure if there would be a suitable pattern for a man’s shirt.  Well Flowers for Every Season DSP had the perfect one…who would’ve thought that a basically floral collection would work?  This collection has a few non-floral patterns that, of course, coordinate with the florals but work well on their own.

Materials & Measurements

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

  • Whisper White card stock: 3 3/4″ x 5″ (inside)

Details

  • I followed the directions HERE.  I found these directions very easy to follow.
  • The only change I made to the directions was with the tie.  I just cut a piece of DSP into a tie shape. I found this much easier than folding it according to the tutorial.
  • I added two Cinnamon Cider enamel dots to the collar.
  • Add a few mini glue dots underneath the collar to keep it down.
  • The pocket and handkerchief are hand cut.

  • The inside sentiment is from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamps set.

Here’s a look at the other shirt cards I made, ironically one was for my other Son-in-Law, James.  All the details for these cards are HERE

This tutorial really came in handy.  It would also work well as a Father’s Day or masculine birthday card.  I know I’ll probably revisit this design again sometime, so I’m happy to have it in my library.

Forever Fern Wedding Card

Stampin Up Forever Fern Wedding Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

There are several co-workers who have had to either postpone or cancel their wedding plans this spring.  I can only imagine how disappointing this is considering all the planning and anticipation that goes into a wedding.  Since we’ve been away from school since March, we could not celebrate with them either.  So in lieu of the usual bridal shower we would have had, we are sending our good wishes through the mail in the form of a “card shower”.  Everyone is putting their cards in the mail on the same day in the hopes that they all arrive within a few days of each other.  The idea is to surprise the bride to be each day with a mailbox full of wedding wishes the week before her ceremony.

I used the Forever Fern bundle along with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder to create a soft and elegant card.


Adding to the softness is the Whisper White, Silver Foil and Soft Sea Foam color scheme.  I stamped a variety of ferns in Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sea Foam ink and die cut them using the Forever Flourishing dies. I also added a couple of ferns die cut in vellum.  The Parisian Flourish embossing folder gave the card such pretty texture.  Enhancing the elegance is the heat embossed sentiment and row of rhinestones.

The inside sentiment is from the Forever Blossoms stamp set and is stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink.

Dry embossing the envelope flap was a quick and easy way to create an equally elegant envelope.

I’m a little obsessed with the Forever Fern Suite of products at the moment and have to remind myself to use some of the other products I purchased from the new Annual Catalog.  This bundle is the ultimate in versatility and could be used for almost every occasion.  It would also pair so well with many other stamp sets.  I had no problem creating a few more projects with this bundle and three of those are my exclusive FREE tutorials for the month of June.

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!

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

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.

Blossoms in Bloom Bundle #154123

  • 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.
