Framed Florets Bundle Paired with the Summer Shadows Dies

I have a card for you today that uses the Framed Florets Bundle that went live to everyone on November 1st.  I made this card a birthday card, but I think it would make a beautiful wedding card with a different saying.

The frames in the Framed Florets dies are so fancy and pretty, I thought a card in Very Vanilla would be perfect.  The base of the card is Thick Very Vanilla 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.

Cut a piece of basic Very Vanilla 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Run this through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the Quatrefoil Tile Embossing Folder.  It's so pretty and works right in with the pretty.  Glue this to the front of the card.

Use Very Vanilla again to cut  first the frame with the cut outs around it.  Now cut the other frame from Very Vanilla as well.  Be sure to keep the center oval.  Glue the cut out frame to the center of the card.  Now glue the other frame.  This one is a little larger and overlaps the first frame just a little bit.

Use an Embossing Buddy on the oval center.  Stamp the saying from Framed Florets with VersaMark.  Add gold emboss powder and melt with the Heat Tool.  The embossing powder comes in a pack called the Metallics Embossing Powders with gold, silver, and copper.  Glue this piece in the center of the ovals.

The gold foil also comes in a pack of Foil Sheets.  Copper and gold are in the pack.  Cut the larger stem and three of the leaves from gold using the Framed Florets dies.

Use the Summer Shadows dies and cut from Very Vanilla the large solid and detailed flower and the smaller solid and detailed flowers.  Cumple the detailed flowers in your hand to add a little dimension.  I cut a circle of gold free hand for the center of the flower.  Glue the circle behind the detail and then glue the two pieces together.  Adhere just in the center.  

Figure out where the gold stem and the 2 leaves should be and glue them down.   Add the full flower with dimensionals.  

Now glue the bottom of the detailed half flower to the solid along the bottom of the flower.  Add it with dimensionals at the top and glue dots along the bottom.  Glue on the leaf.

For the inside, I gold embossed another saying from Framed Florets and glue on another leaf at the bottom.

Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper Fun Fold Wedding Card

Weddings are a great thing.  Today I have a card for a wedding using the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper.  This is a fun fold card, but it is super easy.  Here's a picture.

This card has several folds that allows it to stand up.  Here is the view from above.


The card base is Blackberry Bliss.  I love this color with gold!  It measures the same as a regular card base.  However, for this one score at 2, 3 1/8, 5 3/8, and 6 1/2.

The Blackberry Beauty DSP measures 1 7/8 x 5 3/8.  You will need two of these, one for each side.  

For the middle section, use Gold Foil.  It measures 2 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Run this through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Stitched Greenery die.  This goes so well with designer paper on the sides!  Glue.


Cut a medallion with the Encircled in Beauty dies from Blackberry Bliss.  The saying for the front of the card is from the Forever Blossoms stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  Use an Embossing Buddy or used dryer sheet to rub over the white card stock.  Stamp on with Versamark.  Use gold emboss powder from the Metallics Stampin' Emboss Powders.  Cut this out with the Layering Circles dies.  One of them will fit just inside the medallion.  

Add a bow with a glue dot made using the Simply Elegant Trim in gold.


Here is the flip side of the card.  The Basic White paper is the same measurement as the gold on front, 2 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Emboss the saying from Forever Blossoms.  


Since this is for a wedding, the envelope needs to be decorated as well.  Glue designer paper to the fold of the envelope and then cut away the extra.  

This card is so easy to make, but has a little extra pizzazz.  Think of all of the occasions that you could use it.  If you make one I would love to see it.

In Honor of the Queen: a Card

I know many of you watched the wedding of Meghan and Harry.  Did you find yourself looking at all the people through the Stampin' Up! colors?  I have to admit that's often how I view the world.  Did you notice the Lemon-Lime Twist and Gorgeous Grape worn by Queen Elizabeth.  I got this pic from Google.

Queen at the wedding

She really looked pretty although a smile might would help.  I decided to make a card with the same colors in honor of the queen.

Of course we needed flowers on the card!  Do you see what I used for the flower?  Well, we'll get to that.

The base is Lemon Lime Twist 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The Gorgeous Grape layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  The next Lemon Lime layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  Run this layer through the Big Shot with the Garden Trellis embossing folder.  This folder makes everything looks fancy!

The petals of the flower are made with the sea weed framelit from the Under the Sea Framelits.  Don't you just love finding a new way to use something!  This is not an original idea.  I saw it somewhere on Pinterest, but I can't find it now to give credit.  Make 4 of the sea weed shapes in Gorgeous Grape and adhere them with a little glue.  The center of the flower is a Lemon Lime Twist 1/2 inch circle.  Just punch it.  I played with the paper until I could pull it apart.  That makes it have a suede like appearance.  

The leaves are from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  They are Mossy Meadow.  Adhere the flower and leaves with dimensionals.

Finally, the sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.  Use the Classic Label Punch to punch it out.

For the inside I added another flower.  The saying is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.

I really love how this card turned out.  These colors do look great together.

A Wedding Card

It's not that easy coming up with cards for my blog when I feel that my mojo is gone. Once in a while the ideas come.  Lately, not so much.  I did get a few new sets lately (new to me anyway) and that has helped.  One of my new sets is Better Together.  It was in last year's catalog.  I didn't want to get it until I knew it would be carried over. This set has some great sayings that can be paired so that you have something for the outside and the inside of the card.  There is one flower with the set and that's what I chose to feature.

Better Together Wedding card

You are going to want all of the new In Colors for 2017-2019!  Today I am using Berry Burst.  Isn't it lovely!  If you are a Stampin' Up! demo, you can order it now!  Want more information?  Contact me.

  • The card base is Berry Burst card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score at 4 1/4.
  • The next layer is Whisper White.  It measures 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.
  • There's another Berry Burst layer that is 3 3/8 x 4 5/8.
  • The last layer is the gold dots from the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It measures 3 1/4 x 4 1/2.
  • The sentiment is embossed with the Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Just stamp using the Versamark pad on to Whisper White card stock.  Use a dry paint brush to brush away any stray powder before you heat with the Heat Tool.  Use an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies to cut out the sentiment.
  • The flowers were also embossed with gold.  Stamp with Versamark on Watercolor Paper.  Emboss.  Using the Aqua Painter and the ink from the lids of the Berry Burst and the Lemon Lime Twist pads, paint in the flowers.  Allow to dry and then you'll have to fussy cut them out.  I used a total of 8 flowers.  Some are on the inside.

Wedding 5

  • Attach the flowers with a combinations of glue and dimensionals.  The oval was added with dimensionals.  So the flowers were glued on top of the oval and dimensionals were put where the flowers spill over onto the card.

Wedding 2

The sentiment for the inside of the card was also embossed in gold.  Glue the flowers in place.

The gold dotted paper is one of those specialty papers that is really hard to cut.  I do think it was perfect for this card.  You just can't go wrong with a little gold at a wedding, can you.

Better Together

As I write this post the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper is still on the Retiring List for just $7.80.  That's a great bargain.  Just click below to go to my store.  I would love to have your business!  Thanks for stopping by today.

June is For Weddings! and SUO Challenge #149

Over at SU- Only Challenges, they are all about weddings this week.  It is June now. Check them out here.  I thought I would play along.  Here's the wedding card that I made.

Wedding suo

I must be addicted to the new Swirly Birds set.  Here it is again!  Here is how the card is made.

  • The card base uses Dapper Denim.  It's one of the new in colors for 2016-2018!  I'm loving it!
  • Next is a layer of Whisper White cut 4 x 5 1/4.
  • I'm thinking silver for a wedding.  I used the Swirly Birds stamp.  Rub your card stock with the embossing buddy.  I stamped in Versamark, added silver embossing powder, and heated with my heat tool.
  • I added a piece of silver diagonal stripe using the Neutrals Designer Series Paper stack to the bottom of the layer.  It measures 2 1/4 x 4.
  • Cut a piece of Silver Foil 3/4 by 4.  Embossing this using the Elegant Dots embossing folder. Adhere at the seam.
  • For my sentiments, I used the stamp set Rose Wonder, inside and out.  Both sentiments are embossed in silver.  For the front of the card, I stamped on Whisper White and punched it out with the 2 inch circle punch.
  • The circle needed a color behind to anchor it so I added a circle of Dapper Denim.  I used the retired Circles Collection Framelits for this.  My new Layering Circles Framelits are ordered and on their way, but until then I must make do, right?

Wedding suo close up

  • The flowers are punched from Dapper Denim using the Petite Petals punch and then sponged with the Denim ink.
  • I used the Festive Flower Builder punch for the leaves.  I punched them out of Old Olive card stock.  I went back to the Swirly Bird stamp set for the veins in the leaves, stamped in Old Olive and sponged in the same color.  They'll punch out hooked together.  Just cut them apart.

Wedding suo inside

Here's the inside of the card.  As I mentioned above, it's also embossed in silver.  I added another flower. I put the tinier pearls on the inside of the card to keep it from being so bulky.  I decided that I like that look.  So I made another card.
