Stampin' Up! Falling in Love Suite Anniversary Card Idea

 

February is approaching.. that means we think about love, Valentines, and sending love notes to dear ones!  Today I am sharing a card I made with an anniversary greeting, but you can change it up for Valentine's day or any occasion depending on the greeting you stamp!

The Falling In Love Suite from the 2017 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog, pgs, 50-53 is just gorgeous!  The lovely elements are so perfect for creating PRETTY cards!! :)

The "secret" on this card is die cutting the So Detailed Thinlit with the Falling in Love paper... see below for more info!

The products I used from the Falling In Love Suite are:

  • Falling in Love Designer Paper, pg 51, #142788
  • Very Vanilla 1/4" Satin Ribbon, pg 51, #142794
  • Lace Doilies, pg 51, #142793
  • Falling in Love embellishments, pg 51, #142791
  • So Detailed Thinlit dies, pg 52, #142751
  • Falling for You stamp set, pg 51, #143106 (wood mount) or #143109 (clear mount)
  • So in Love stamp set, pg 52, #143112 (wood mount) or #143216 (clear mount)

The perfect embellishments for this card are the new Falling in Love embellishments (attached with glue dots) and the new Lace Doilies.  They are vanilla on one side and white on the other so they go a LONG way in your crafting projects... AND you can add color by sponging or spritzing them, so the possibilities are endless!

The secret to this card was to die cut the Falling in Love paper with the So Detailed thinlit die.  What a neat effect that gives this card!  Then I layered that piece onto the "lace" pattern from the same Falling in Love package of designer paper.  Don't you love the contrast? I think it's gorgeous!

I made this card on both Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette cardstock bases - both of them work well.

The vanilla embellishments keep the soft look and doilies are perfect for this card.

You may have noticed that I used the Stitched Shape oval framelit piece... GUESS WHAT.. it's BACK IN STOCK on 1/16/17!! yay!!! CLICK HERE to see more info about these great Stitched Shape framelits!

I stamped the images from the So In Love stamp set on the tags above, and from the Falling For You stamp set on the card below.

And then... I thought why not add a dragonfly to the card!  I had one die cut out of Gold Foil paper (from THIS card) and decided to add it to my birthday card version of the So Detailed thinlit card!  The birthday greeting in the card below is from the Best Birds stamp set.

Another perfect accent to the gold dragonfly is the gold metallic ribbon - a free selection from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration brochure!!  If you need more info on how the free items work, check out this blog post.

Stunning Black and White Floral Card

 

Wow.. do you need a great idea for a handmade wedding card? This is it!  The Botanical Builder flower framelits from Stampin' UP! die cut all in Whisper White cardstock and layered onto a Basic Black Card!

 

Black and White Stampin UP! Botanical Gardens flower card with Elegant Dots embossed die cut.

 

My friend Joy saw this flower card idea on Pinterest and taught me how to make this!! 

She die cut Whisper White cardstock using the Lots of Labels framelits, and embossed it with the Elegant Dots embossing folder.  After adding that to the folded Basic Black card, we added lots of die cut flowers.  The flowers and leaves are all die cut with the Big Shot using the Botanical Builder framelit set, shown below and available HERE online.

 

Black and White Stampin UP! Botanical Gardens framelits flower card with Elegant Dots embossed die cut.

 

Did you notice that we stamped some of the leaves with Sahara Sand ink with the coordinating Botanical Blooms stamp set?  That added just the perfect amount of contrast!! It's a photopolymer set, so seeing through it and stamping the leaves is really easy!

I love all the layering.. some flowers are adhered with Snail adhesive, some with Glue Dots and some with Stampin' Dimensionals.. that's a great way to get lots of depth!

For a POP of glimmer, we punched 1/8" circles of Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper for the flower centers.. so pretty!  You could also use Wink of Stella.

You could try this on a Gold card, Cherry Cobbler Card, Pink Card.. gosh.. most any color! It would be stunning no matter what!

Ours is a top folding 4-1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock so that we could tie the ribbon around the card easily.

Bridal Shower Invitation - stamping with friends

 Stamping with friends.. it's the best!! Recently I had the opportunity to help 2 young friends with Bridal Shower invitations for their friend!!  Here we are, each with our own task, creating the 30 invitations!

WARNING:  stamping with friends may cause spontaneous smiles and laughter!!  :)

 

Stampin' UP! Botanical Gardens vellum overlay on Rose Wonder bridal shower invitation cards, featuring black glimmer paper and gold Metallic Glitter tape.

 

They told me that the colors were red, black and white, with red roses, and that the bride-to-be also likes gold.. so.. we went to work stamping the flower from the Rose Wonder stamp set onto Whisper White notecards, then covering the front with a 3" wide panel of the Sale a Bration Botanical Garden vellum which was stamped with "celebrate today".

 

Stampin' UP! Botanical Gardens vellum overlay on Rose Wonder bridal shower invitation cards, featuring black glimmer paper and gold Metallic Glitter tape.

We added 2 punched black glimmer paper hearts to the front of the card.

As you can see below, we thought about adding black ribbon, but decided to go with a piece of the gold Metallic Glitter tape - one of the newest Sale a Bration items! 

Sale a Bration is ending SOON!!!!  If you don't have the beautiful Botanical Gardens vellum, or this amazing glitter tape, you have a few days left to select them as your free gifts during 2016 Sale a Bration from Stampin' Up!  One free gift with each $50 in Stampin' UP! product orders until 3/31/16.  Click to order online!

We added some snail adhesive under the hearts to adhere the vellum to the card, and the gold glitter tape also helps hold down the vellum.

The girls were thrilled with the outcome of the invitations, and they texted a photo to the bride-to-be for approval.. it was a fun and productive stamping date!! And guess what.. it only took us an hour!!

We used up some of the scraps of black glimmer paper to punch small hearts to add to the left inside of the card with "wedding wishes" stamped in black.

I think they turned out really classy!

I saw that Katina cut apart the rose and leaves from the Rose Wonder stamp and I thought that was a great idea.. it allows you to stamp the flower in one color and the leaves in another!! It was the perfect time-saver for this card!!

Wedding Card for our Niece

 

Today is a special day... Mother's Day!  Happy Mother's Day to all of my "mom friends"!  I also realized it's 5-10-15 which is just a SUPER cool date!! I was guessing there might me lots of weddings going on today because of the cool date, So.. why not share a wedding card I recently made!?

As I mentioned in this previous blog post, our niece Amy just got married... and of course I had to create a handmade wedding card for her... I used the beautiful "For the New Two" stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog and Calypso Coral ink and embossing powder to make it really special!

I wish we could have handed this to Josh and Amy in person, but, unfortunately, the 3 of us ended up SO sick that Easter Weekend and had to miss the wedding, but we wish them all the best and send all our love!

Amy's Bridal Shower Card

 

Our niece, Amy, recently got married to a super guy named Josh.. and for her bridal shower, I sent her THESE THANK YOU NOTE BOXES made from empty Project Life boxes.  Below is the card I mailed with the boxes for her bridal shower.. I think you could also use this for a wedding card!

For-the-two-new-wedding-shower-card-stampin-up-pattystamps

The background is stamped with a limited time offering stamp called Something Lacy.. I'm really sad that it's only available until June 2nd!!!  You can see it in my online store here!  I stamped it in Crisp Cantaloupe ink on Whisper White paper then layered it onto a folded Crisp Cantaloupe folded card.  Crisp Cantaloupe is one of my all time favorite colors.. I'm sad it's retiring too!!

Below is the 411 on creating this card.. the sentiment is from the "For the New Two" stamp set which I'm happy to tell you will also be in the new Stampin' Up! catalog!! yay!!!

I used 3 sweet little ribbon flowers on this card.. they were from the Artisan Embellishment kit that sold out quickly... I am learning that it's important to get Stampin' Up! products quickly after they are released because so many from the Occasions catalog sold out quite quickly this year!
