Heart Collage Card

Today I’m sharing a heart collage card. This is one of the cards we made in my Valentine’s Day class and it features the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper in the From My Heart suite in the Mini Catalog. Some of the papers in this set include red and pink foil accents – such fun!

I used the Meant to Be stamp set pictured on page 76 and the Forever Lovely stamp set on page 81 in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, along with the Stitched Be Mine Dies on page 195. These three products were originally in the 2019 Occasions catalog and I was so happy to see them carried over this year. I love the images and the set of dies is fantastic!

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold in half.
  • Cut piece of red foil DSP at 5 1/4″ x 4.” Tie piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine around sheet and adhere to card base.
  • Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4 1/2″ x 3″ for the collage base.
  • Use the filigree die to cut a heart from a scrap of Real Red cardstock.
  • Stamp the heart image with Real Red ink and die cut.
  • Use a scrap of the striped DSP and die cut with one of the elongated heart dies.
  • For the foil heart, punch out with the plain edge punch from the Heart Punch Pack in the product suite. I chose not to purchase the punches so I cut it out with the paper snips.
  • Arrange the hearts in a pleasing design and adhere. I adhered the filigree heart first, using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.
  • Attach the collage piece to the foil paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • For the inside of the card cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp a Valentine’s Day greeting of your choice in Real Red ink. I used a greeting from the Forever Lovely stamp set.
  • Stamp the scattered heart image from the Forever Lovely set twice with Flirty Flamingo ink along left side of cardstock.

Painted Poppies-Kylie’s Training Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop for January! I’m part of a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world that participate in Kylie’s program for building our businesses . Click on the names in the list below to hop around and view the beautiful cards posted by so many talented stampers.

Today I’m featuring a card from the gorgeous Painted Poppies suite, my favorite in the new Mini-Catalog. Poppy Parade has always been a favorite color of mine ever since it was first introduced as an InColor years ago. I was so happy when Stampin’ Up! brought it back during the last color refresh, however I haven’t had as much occasion to use it as I’d like because it has seldom been included in any of our Designer Series Papers until now, with the Peaceful Poppies paper. I’m glad they are showing it a little love!

I turned to one of my tried and true card layouts as it is ideal for showcasing both our beautiful DSP and larger stamp images at the same time. Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut piece of Poppy Parade cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score and fold in half.
  • Cut piece of the large poppy print at 5 1/4″ x 4″ and adhere to front of card.
  • Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3 1/2″ x 3″. Cut piece of smaller poppy print DSP at 3 3/8″ x 2 7/8″ and adhere together. Tie Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon into bow around this piece and adhere to card.
  • For the stamped image, cut a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock at 3 1/4″ x 2 3/4″ and a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3 1/8″ x 2 5/8″.
  • Stamp poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set and a greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set on the Whisper White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I chose the birthday greeting but you can use any of the greetings in the set that would fit into the space. Use the Stamparatus to help position the greeting.
  • Color the flowers with light and dark Stampin’ Blends in Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo and Calypso Coral. Color leaves with the dark Old Olive Blends.
  • Adhere stamped image to the Poppy Parade mat. Adhere to larger matted piece. Adhere a few of the light Poppy Parade flower sequins from the Peaceful Poppy Sequins. I used Mini Glue Dots but you can also use the Fine Tip Glue Pen.
  • For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 5 1/4″ x 4″. Stamp greeting in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  • Cut a strip of DSP at 5 1/4″ x 1/2″. The new Mini Paper Cutter worked beautifully to cut this strip!

Introducing the Peaceful Poppies Suite

This images in this striking mega-suite made it to the top of my list when I placed my pre-order last month. This suite includes two stamp sets with coordinating dies. The images in the Painted Poppies stamp set are ideal for watercoloring or coloring with Stampin’ Blends. The Peaceful Moments stamp set is a greeting only stamp set, with a beautiful font and sentiments for many different occasions. This will definitely be a “go to” set for me. The dies in this bundle will give you endless possibilties for creating layered, 3-D flowers.

Next is a gorgeous set of Designer Series Papers that was originally watercolored by a Stampin’ Up! design artist. I love the color palette – so bright and fresh!

There are three coordinating accessories to round out this suite. The Peaceful Poppies Elements are add-on die-cut printed images that are great for creating quick cards without you having to do a lot of the work! The package contains 8 sheets, with 2 sheets each of the different elements. The Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon can be used as is or you can use ink pads, reinkers or Stampin’ Blends to color the ribbon to match any project. Lastly, the Peaceful Poppies Sequins include both round and flower shapes.

Merry Merlot Sip Sip Hooray

Today I’m sharing another card I made using the Sip Sip Hooray stamp set and coordinating Sip and Celebrate dies. This one uses the wine glass image so I thought what better colors to use than Merry Merlot and Rococo Rose!

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and fold in half.
  • Cut piece of Merry Merlot cardstock at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. Use the bubble die in the Sip & Celebrate die set to make the bubble border at the top and bottom of the piece. Adhere to card base.
  • Cut piece of Rococo Rose cardstock at 4 1/8″ x 2 3/4″ and piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4 1/8″ x 2 1/2″.
  • Stamp two of the wine glass images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the piece of Whisper White cardstock. Stamp the fill images with Rococo Rose ink.
  • To make the leaves, stamp two images with Mint Macaron ink on scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the coordinating die.
  • Stamp Sip Sip greeting on scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock. Cut circle with one of the smaller dies in the Layering Circles die set. Cut scalloped circle from scrap piece of Merry Merlot and adhere to greeting.
  • Adhere piece with wine glasses to the piece of Rococo Rose and adhere to center of Merry Merlot mat. Adhere leaves to tops of wine glasses. Adhere greeting and embellish it with a Cherry Cobbler rhinestone from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels pack.
  • For the inside of the card stamp one image of the wine glass and stamp the fill image with Rococo Rose ink. I chose not to stamp a greeting so that I could use the card for any special occasion that pops up where I need to send a card out quickly.

This stamp set and dies will be retiring from the 2019 Holiday Catalog so if you would like to purchase the items individually or as a bundle now is the time, whiles supplies last. Click here to go to my online store.
