Wedding Card idea with Climbing Orchids

 

We are so excited to celebrate the wedding of 2 very special people this weekend, and this is the handstamped card I made for them!  It features the new Stampin' UP! Climbing Orchid stamp set and matching Orchid Builder framelit dies.  If you haven't noticed this beautiful Orchid stamp set yet in the 2017 catalog, it's on page 21! (Hey, it's also a bundle.. save 10% when you buy them together #145334).

I know this might not be a typical wedding card.. but as I was working on it, I thought it just might be the perfect wedding card for a summer outdoor wedding for Ashley and Dom!  I hope they love it! 

I promise I will have a video tutorial featuring this amazing Climbing Orchid bundle very soon for you!  There are several ways to use this stamp set and the matching framelits, so I know you are going to want to see all of my tips but I just couldn't wait to share this card with you!!

 

Climbing Orchid stamp set and Orchid Builder bundle from Stampin' Up! Wedding card idea with Layered Leaves embossing folder and Everyday Jars by Patty Bennett

 

When you look at this Climbing Orchid stamp set (here online, pg 21 in the catalog), you'll see that there are MANY orchid images.  I used the outline images stamped in Archival Basic Black ink for this card, and colored them in with my Clear Wink of Stella pen acting as my paint brush, dipped into Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst ink!

Each flower has 2 or 3 layers, plus the center.  I also added a die cut branch from the Seasonal Layers framelit set, and put the branch into a die cut jar from the Everyday Jars framelit set.  I curled each petal with the bone folder.  I'll show you more about that in my upcoming video tutorial.

The inside (and the oval tag on the front) are stamped with images from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Berry Burst ink... truly one of the most versatile sets in the whole catalog!  Find it on page 92 or here online.

The card base and greetings are all Berry Burst.  One of the new 2017-2019 In Colors.

Although it might be hard to see in the photos, the white background is embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder, found on page 211 in the Stampin' Up! catalog or HERE in my online Stampin' Up! store.  It's pretty subtle, but lends a very elegant touch!

I also added Wink of Stella to the water in the Everyday Jars die cut so that the blue would shimmer like water.

The Happy Wedding day greeting is also in the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set (mentioned above) and was stamped in Berry Burst on a Stitched Shape framelit oval die cut in Whisper White on the Big Shot.

Ribbon of Courage Z fold swap card

 

Last month our Luv 2 Stamp group of demonstrators joined another group lead by Gina Cardera and we had a wonderful, informative day-long event featuring new Stampin' UP! products, business tips, lunch, make & take projects, and more!!  One of the fun parts of a demonstrator gathering is a card swap.   A card swap means you make several of one card (usually with a particular theme), and you bring them and "swap" with other demonstrators.  It's a great way to go home with a ton of new ideas!

The theme for our July event card swap was using any NEW products in the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog, so I elected to use the Ribbon of Courage set and Support Ribbon framelit bundle.  See MORE about this bundle HERE.

 

With Faith all things are Possible, Ribbon of Courage Stampin' Up! swap card by Patty Bennett for the June Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator meeting.

 

I couldn't decide if I liked the Powder Pink ribbon on the side of the card or not... ultimately I made the cards without the ribbon... what's your preference?

I made a Z fold card using thick whisper white cardstock, Blushing Bride cardstock, Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, and the Fresh Florals paper stack.  See below in this post for the cutting and scoring instructions.

Each flower center has a Clear Faceted Gem.. the perfect touch to give this card a little glitz!

 

If you need more info about the products I used, you can see all of them at the bottom of this blog post.  Clicking on any of the product photos in that list will also take you to my online Stampin' Up! store and you can easily order any of these products anytime!

I used Flirty Flamingo cardstock for the layering ovals scallop shapes that highlighted the die cut ribbons.  I stamped the ribbons in Flirty Flamingo ink and die cut them with the corresponding framelit.

Congrats to Luv 2 Stamp Group Demonstrator Promotions!

 

Each month I recognize the title advancements (promotions) for my Luv 2 Stamp Group team of demonstrators.  I send a card and little Stampin' UP! product goody to each person.  I'm a little behind in sharing these but these are the Congrats cards I created with the Stampin' UP! Sunshine Wishes framelit dies for the demonstrators who promoted in May.

I know these are really bold and bright but the new 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! In Colors are just so fun to work with and I can't seem to put them down!!  So, I used a peppy combo of Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Black and White on these cards!

Each Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator with a promotion in May received one of the cards with a Gold Striped Treat bag and the Gold Faceted Gems and Metallic enamel shapes.  I tied them up with the gorgeous gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon.  SO PRETTY!

 Join my Team!

Read all the details about the EXTRA $72 in free product in your Starter Kit HERE!

For the flowers, I die cut Berry Burst cardstock with the flower shape in the Support Ribbon framelit set, and the leaf in Lemon Lime Twist from the same framelit set.  I was putting the green Glitter Enamel Shapes in the flower centers, and then I thought black might look fun and dramatic, so I colored some White Perfect Accents with my black Sharpie marker.  I like them both!

 

Color the White Perfect Accent enamel dots with any color Sharpie marker to match your crafty DIY project!

 

CRAFTY TIP!

Do you love tips that make life easier in the craft room!? 

OK, then try this... use the Stampin' Up! Adhesive Sheets, and put the adhesive on the back of your cardstock BEFORE you die cut your shapes... then you can peel the die cuts off the sheet and adhere them right to your project!  No Messy or time-consuming glue to deal with!!

 

Use Stampin' Up! Adhesive Sheets on the back of your cardstock BEFORE die cutting images, then easily apply to your crafting project.

Details & Dimensions:

  • Card Base: 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Thick Whisper White cardstock
  • Lemon Lime Twist: 5-1/4" x 2-1/2" Fresh Florals Paper Stack
