Friendly Hello

Hello! Today’s card features the Friendly Hello stamp set and coordinating Designer Series Paper that you can earn for free with a $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. This is such a sweet stamp set and the DSP designs are soft and pretty. The card layout is one I frequently use, usually in landscape, however, I chose to do this card in portrait because it looked much better this way as I was designing the card!

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut a piece of Pool Party cardstock at 4″ x 4″ square. Cut a piece of the striped paper from the Friendly Hello DSP at 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ square and adhere to Pool Party cardstock.
  • Cut a length of Fresh Freesia 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and tie in a bow around the Pool Party Piece. Adhere to card base.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ and run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the next to largest die from the Scalloped Contours Dies.
  • Stamp the bird image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Color the bird with the light and dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blends. Color the flowers with the light and dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. Color the leaf stem with the light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend.
  • Stamp the greeting below the bird image with Fresh Freesia ink.
  • Adhere die cut piece to card front. Add an Irridescent Rhinestone to the center of each flower.
  • For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. I used the birthday greeting from the set and stamped it with Fresh Freesia ink. Stamp the small floral image in the bottom left corner and color with Stampin’ Blends. Adhere to inside of card.

Pretty Perennials Happy Mail

Hello! Welcome to Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop for April. I’m part of a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world that participate in Kylie’s program for building our businesses. The theme for this year is thank you cards that we make as a way to show appreciation to our customers. Please be sure to click on the names in the list at the end of this post to hop around and view the beautiful projects posted by these talented stampers.

Today’s card features the Pretty Perennials bundle from the mini catalog, along with two favorite products that will be retiring on May 3rd. This is the last chance for you to purchase the fabulous Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper and the Layering Ovals Dies. I was shocked to see that the dies were retiring – these are a staple for me!! Grab them now while you can – I just checked the inventory status and it is getting low.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, fold in half and crease with a bone folder.
  • Layering mat – cut a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.
  • Cut piece of polka dot paper from the True Love Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Using the third largest oval from the Layering Ovals dies, center it on the DSP and cut.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. Stamp the “happy” greeting from the Pretty Perennials stamp set in center with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Stamp “mail” with Melon Mambo ink directly under the “happy.” Adhere to the polka dot DSP piece.
  • Using the Perennial Petals Dies, cut one large and three next-to-largest flowers from the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper. I used two different papers that featured the pinks and oranges, and cut them out from different sections of the paper to get a variety of colors from the one sheet of paper.
  • Die cut the Basic Black petal overlays from scrap pieces that have been backed with pieces of an adhesive sheet. Adhere them to the flowers. Adhere the flowers to the polka dot DSP piece, arranging them around the outside of the oval.
  • Adhere piece to the Melon Mambo cardstock mat. Adhere this piece to the Basic Black cardbase with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Adhere Elegant Faceted Gems to the flower centers. I used the Petal Pink gems.
  • Card inside – cut piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. I die cut two small flowers from the Artistry Blooms paper and adhered them in the lower left corner. Adhere to inside of card.

Retiring 2019-2021 In Colors

The new 2021-2022 annual catalog will be released one month earlier than usual on May 4th, which means that the 2019-2021 In Colors will be retiring on May 3rd.  If you would like to purchase cardstock, inks, markers, etc. now is the time!  Many of the products are already at low inventory and I don’t know if supplies will be replenished.  Click on any of the pictures if you’d like to purchase any of these In Color products from my online store.  I’m very sorry to see this group of colors go.  This was one of my most favorite groups of In Colors in all the years I’ve been a demonstrator!
