Beautiful Friendship Flower Card Set

These Beautiful Friendship flower cards started out as a “one sheet wonder” – have you done that before?  I stamped the entire 8-1/2×11 Whisper White cardstock piece with all the flowers and leaves, then cut it into 1/4ths for the 4 card fronts.  I love how pretty these cards turned out, and loved embellishing them with different greetings, ribbons, and mounting them on 4 different colored card bases.

The card below is mounted on a Thick Whisper White folded card base, and the greeting is from the Country Home stamp set, stamped in Rococo Rose ink on a die cut from the Smooth Sailing dies, mounted onto a round Stitched Shape die cut.  I tied it up with the 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle ribbon and added some pink rhinestones from the Peacock Rhinestone pack.

To bring out the Seaside Spray flowers, I mounted the card below on Seaside Spray cardstock  – a new In Color – and used Seaside Spray ribbon wrapped around the card.  Did you see what I did with just a piece of the Stitched Label die????  🙂   The greeting is stamped in Pretty Peacock ink (another new In Color) and it’s found in the Bloom and Grow stamp set.

I wanted to play up the Mango Melody on this card below, so mounted the stamped floral piece on a folded Mango Melody card base and added some of the new 3/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon in Crushed Curry.  I think it goes perfectly!!  The greeting is from the Country Home stamp set.

I really love these colors together.. I used Mango Melody, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray and Pear Pizzazz.  Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray are new 2019-2021 In Colors. See ALL the new In Colors HERE.

A Rococo Rose cardstock base really brings out the stamped Rococo Rose roses on this card, and I also tried layering 2 die cut pieces from the Perfect Parcel dies set.. I really liked how that came out!!

What do you think? Wouldn’t this make a lovely set of 4 cards as a gift? Wrap them up in the Acetate Card Box with 4 Whisper White envelopes!?

5 Square Card Ideas with Woven Thread paper

I was really intrigued by the colors and patterns in the Woven Threads designer paper, on page 14 of the new Stampin’ Up! catalog, so I came up with 5 Square Card ideas to showcase some of the patterns and 3 new In Colors.

The larger square cards are 4-1/4″ square and the 2 small ones are 3″ square.  The base cards are Pretty Peacock cardstock and Seaside Spray.  They are 2 of the new In Colors for 2019-2021.  See them all HERE. Check out the Woven Threads designer paper HERE.

On my small square cards I used Terracotta Tile and Seaside Spray 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon paired with Linen Thread and Nature’s Twine. 

This Woven Threads Designer Paper actually features ALL 5 of the 2019 2021 In Colors!!  I used 3 of them!

Each of the circle focal points is die cut with the Layering Circle framelits (scallop die) and layered onto a Stitched Shape circle.

On the card below I added the Scalloped Lace ribbon.  I love all the layers and textures.

Patty’s Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Order Cardstock Storage

Last year at this time, Stampin’ UP! introduced a color revamp, adding new colors to the beautiful color line up!  At that time I decided to switch my ink pad and cardstock storage to “rainbow order”.  I have LOVED having it in rainbow order for the past year, as opposed to organized in color families as I had stored them for so many years.  Today I am sharing my Rainbow Order Cardstock Storage.

What’s your One Must Have Color?

 

What is your one MUST HAVE Stampin' UP! Color?

Of course mine changes from month to month it seems… BUT for the last several months my go-to color has been:

Grapefruit Grove!

What's so strange about that is….

Orange is not my color.. but I LOVE Grapefruit Grove and how it coordinates so well with SO many Stampin' Up! colors!! I have paired it here today with Mint Macaron.

 

  Abstract Impressions floral card featuring Stampin' UP! Detailed Floral thinlit die. Video Tutorial tips by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I created this card with the Detailed Floral Thinlit die cut with Whisper White cardstock, then layered it onto a folded Grapefruit Grove card base.  I added stamped flower images from the Abstract Impressions stamp set, stamped in Grapefruit grove, and punched leaves with the Leaf punch and Mint Macaron cardstock after stamping the image with the Painted Harvest set.

Tip: you don't have to own 2 colors of ink pads to use a 2-step stamp image.. simply use one color (Grapefruit Grove used here) and stamp off the largest/solid image onto your grid paper first, then stamp it on your cardstock.  Then stamp the more detailed image full strength with the same color!  This way you get 2 tones of the same color.

 

Abstract Impressions floral stamps from Stampin' UP!  by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Tip for die cutting detailed images:

As shown in my video at the bottom of this post, I found this "Big Shot Sandwich" to be the best when die cutting a detailed image like this Detailed Floral thinlit:

(top of sandwich)

Clear Plate

Cardstock

Die UPSIDE DOWN (cutting side facing up)

Thin Die Adapter

Big Shot Platform

(bottom of sandwich)

then be sure to use your Die Brush to easily pop out all of the little pieces.  This will all make more sense when you watch the video at the bottom of my post.

 

Abstract Impressions floral card featuring Stampin' UP! Detailed Floral thinlit die. Video Tutorial tips by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

Watch the first part of the video below to see how nicely this detailed floral image comes out when you use the die cutting method above! You can skip to about the 10 minute mark in the video if you want to see how perfectly this method works!

 

 

Hope you enjoyed today's Grapefruit Grove featured project!

Do you love Grapefruit Grove?
