I wanted to show you this great Stampin' Up! video that shows some of the different ways you can use the dies in this bundle. It will help you when making the Short & Sweet Saturday card I'll be sharing with you tomorrow.

Blooms & Wishes For You Card


I'm in love with this new stamp set, Blooms & Wishes. This is the first card I've made with this stamp set, and it turned out pretty good, if I say so myself. All I did was stamp and add some pearls. That's it! This stamp set doesn't need anything special done with it to make a card look fabulous!


Card Instructions:
  1. Fold a 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Rich Razzleberry Cardstock in half to form the card base.
  2. Stamp the flowers and leaves on the bottom, right corner of a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock (see picture for placement). The large five-petal flower and smallest flower stamps from the Blooms & Wishes Stamp Set were stamped with the Flirty Flamingo Classic Stampin' Pad. The large four-petal flower stamp was stamped with the Sweet Sugarplum Classic Stampin' Pad.  The daisy stamp was stamped with the Peekaboo Peach Classic Stampin' Pad. The second, smallest flower stamp was stamped with the Rich Razzleberry Classic Stampin' Pad. The flower centers and greeting stamps were stamped with the Soft Suede Classic Stampin' Pad. The leaves and branch stamps were stamped with the Pear Pizzazz Classic Stampin' Pad.
  3. Attach the stamped layer to the card base.
  4. Add a large pearl from the Pearl Basic Jewels to the centers of the large Flirty Flamingo flower, Sweet Sugarplum flower, and the two Rich Razzleberry flowers. Add a medium-sized pearl to the centers of the two small Flirty Flamingo flowers.

Confetti Celebration Time to Party Card


I'm so sorry that I haven't been able to post my own projects for awhile. I can't believe how busy June has been! Right now, I'm all caught up, so I should be able to post more often, again. :)

Today's card features the new Confetti Celebration Stamp Set and the colorful Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper (DSP). The colors in the DSP are so bright and cheery! I love it!


Card Instructions:
  1. Fold an 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Tempting Turquoise Cardstock in half to form the card base.
  2. Cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Melon Mambo Cardstock. Attach a 3-7/8" x 3-3-7/8" piece of multi-color striped paper from the Festive Birthday DSP onto the bottom of the Melon Mambo Cardstock. The Melon Mambo border around the DSP should be the same on the bottom and sides of it.
  3. Stamp the light string stamp from the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set onto a 3-7/8" x 1-1/2" piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Stamp it twice in Melon Mambo, and twice in Tempting Turquoise. Stamp the smallest star stamp randomly around the string of lights. See pictures for placement. Attach the piece to the top of the Melon Mambo piece. The Melon Mambo border around the stamped piece should be the same on the top and sides of it. It's okay if the stamped piece and DSP overlap.
  4. Cut two 6" and one 4" pieces of Melon Mambo 1/8" Striped Ribbon. Wrap one of the 6" pieces around the card where the stamped piece and DSP meet. Have the left side of the ribbon start at the bottom of the stamped piece, and the right side end on the top of the DSP. Attach the ribbon ends to the back of the Melon Mambo piece. Wrap the other 6" piece around the card. Have the left side start at the top of the DSP, and the right side end on the bottom of the stamped piece. Attach the ribbon ends to the back of the Melon Mambo piece. The ribbon pieces should intersect in the middle.
  5. Tie the 4" piece of ribbon onto the center of the ribbon (where they intersect), using a single knot. Trim the ribbon ends at an angle.
  6. Get the "Time to Party" stamp. Ink the "TIME" with a Melon Mambo marker, the "to" banner with a Crushed Curry marker, and the "PARTY" with a Tempting Turquoise marker. Stamp it onto the lower part of a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece of Whisper White Cardstock. With the greeting near the bottom of the die, die-cut the greeting out with the 4th largest die from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies.
  7. Die-cut a scallop square from a 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock, using the 3rd largest scallop die. Attach the greeting square to the center of the scallop square, and attach this to the center of the DSP layer on the card.
  8. Stamp the "Yay" star stamp onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock using the Pumpkin Pie Classic Stampin' Pad. Punch it out with the Medium Star Punch. Attach it to the top, right corner of the greeting square with a Stampin' Dimensional.

Flourishing Phrases CPC60 Card


Boy, it's been busy around here! I'm sorry that I haven't been able to post my own creations for awhile...including my Short & Sweet Saturday Cards. Now that my New Catalog Debut Open House is over, I'm hoping to get back on schedule.

I was able to make a card, and I used this month's Creating Pretty Cards Sketch #60 at Craft Project Central. If you play along, you could win a free month subscription to Craft Project Central (CPC)! For every ten cards submitted, CPC will pick one winner of a free month subscription to Craft Project Central! The winner(s) will get to select the month of their choice! If CPC project designers submit a card for your inspiration this month, they won’t be in the winner random-selection pool, but their cards will count towards the “for every 10 cards submitted" winner total. You must submit your card(s) using this sketch by June 30. Please read the "dos" and "don'ts" before making your card. You can find them by clicking the card sketch link above.

I'm so in love with so many of the new bundles in the new catalog, and this is one of them. I used the new Flourishing Phrases bundle which includes the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set and the Flourishes Thinlits Dies. Aren't those die-cuts beautiful?! The new Big Shot Platform and Precision Base Plate made the die-cutting so easy! I used the Die Brush to get all of the little pieces out, and they came out fast.


Card Instructions:
  1. Fold an 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Night Of Navy Cardstock in half to form the card base.
  2. Emboss a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Mint Macaron Cardstock by running it through the Big Shot with the Petal Burst embossing folder.
  3. Cut a 3" x 2-3/4" piece of multi-color flower/copper foil paper from the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper (DSP). Tear the bottom, 3" edge, and attach it to the right side of the Mint Macaron layer, towards the bottom. Attach the whole thing to the center of the card base.
  4. Die-cut a 2" x 2" piece of Watermelon Wonder Cardstock with the largest flower die in the Flourish Thinlites Dies. Die-cut a 4" x 3/4" piece of Watermelon Wonder Cardstock with the border die in the same set. Die-cut a 2-3/4" x 1-3/4" piece of Cucumber Crush Cardstock with the leaf branch die. Die-cut a 3" x 1" piece of Daffodil Delight Cardstock three times with the smallest flower die.
  5. Attach the border piece to the top part of the DSP using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. Line up the right edge of the border with the right edge of the DSP.
  6. Attach a 1-1/2" x 2" piece of Whisper White Cardstock to the center of a 1-3/4" x 2-1/4" piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock. Attach this to the DSP layer (see picture for placement).
  7. Attach the leaf branch to the Whisper White/Crumb Cake piece with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen, angling it to the left (see picture for placement). With a Stampin' Dimensional attached to the back, center of the large flower, attach the flower to the bottom, right of the branch. Attach a large enamel dot from the White Perfect Accents to the center of the flower.
  8. Stamp the "congratulations" stamp from the Flourish Phrases Stamp Set onto a  3-1/4" x 3/4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock using the Night of Navy Classic Stampin' Pad. Tear both short ends of the piece, and then attach it above the DSP layer.
  9. Attach each of the three small Daffodil Delight flowers onto the card using a Mini Glue Dot (put on the back of the flower center). Attach a medium-sized enamel dot from the White Perfect Accents to the center of each flower.
