Stitched Greenery Die

Hello friends,

I am loving this Stitched Greenery Die (#155451) which is great for backgrounds. I am sure it will be used on many of my cards in the future. Not sure why it took so long to get it.




I used this die on the Pearlescent Specialty Paper (#154291) and matted it with the Rich Razzleberry card (#119981). The base card is Shimmery White card (#121717). 

I stamped the floral images from the Art Gallery stamp set (#158201) using Rich Razzleberry ink (#147091) on Shimmer White card. I used the stamping off method to stamp the background of the flowers for a lighter image and the darker areas are stamped normally. These were cut with the co-ordinating Floral Gallery dies (#154316). I taped the flowers on the right side of the card and used Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) to attach the other flowers.

The detailed “circle” was cut with a die from the Encircled In Beauty Dies (#155546) using Rich Razzleberry card. The sentiment is from the Positive Thoughts stamp set (#151490) and also stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink. I used a Tasteful Labels Die (#152886) to cut this. The Rich Razzleberry cut-out was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Elegant Faceted Gems (#152464) were added to the card.

Picture This Dies

Hello again my crafty friends,

Stampin’ Up! have such a great range of dies, many of them co-ordinate with stamps and others can be used alone with great results.




I cut the Mossy Meadow card (#133683) with one of the Picture This Dies (#155559). This was attached to the Beauty Of The Earth Designer Series Paper (#155841), then this was attached to the Basic White base card (#159228).

I cut the tree from Beautiful Trees Dies (#155840) using the darkest of the Brushed Metallic 12”x12” cardstock (#153524) which was backed with Adhesive Sheet (#152334). This makes it easy to attach more detailed pieces to the card.

The birds, also from the Beautiful trees dies were cut from Bumble Bee card (#153082) and attached to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108).

“Happy Birthday” is from the Blossoms In Blooms stamp set (#152684) and I stamped this with VersaMark (#102283). I heat embossed this with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#155555) and set it with the Heat Tool (#129056). The die to cut this is also from the Beautiful Trees dies. I attached the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). 

I finished the card by adding glimmer using the Clear Wink Of Stella Brush (#141897) on the birds.

Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper

Welcome everyone,

I love the variety of Designer Series Papers available from Stampin’ Up!. I have used the Harvest Meadow 12”x12” DSP (#156494) today.





I matted the smaller piece of Designer Series Paper with Merry Merlot card (#147005) and the card front was attached to the Basic White base card (#159228). The leaves and branches were cut with the Intricate Leaves Dies (#153566). I adhered the Adhesive Sheets (#152334) to the cards before cutting. The cards used are Soft Suede (#119982), Mossy Meadow (#133683), Merry Merlot and Crumb Cake (#121685).

The Gold Trim from the Simply Elegant Trim (#155766) was attached to the card. The sentiment was stamped with Merry Merlot ink (#147112) and this was cut with a Stitched So Sweetly die (#151690). The edges were daubered with Merry Merlot ink, then attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

Beautiful DSP makes it very easy to make a lovely card.

The trees and designer series paper are from the beautiful Whimsy & Wonder Suite Collection (#156276).





The trees are from the Whimsical Trees stamp set (#156330) and stamped with VersaMark (#102283), then heat embossed with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#155555) and set with the Heat Tool (#129056). These were then cut with a die from the Christmas Trees Dies (#156339).

I attached silver foil from the Silver Foil Specialty Pack (#156457) to the Whimsy & Wonder 12”x12” Specialty Designer Series Paper (#156329). I wrapped the Metallic Mesh Ribbon (#153550) around the card front, then attached this to the Night Of Navy base card (#106577).

Stitched Snowflakes Dies

Hi again,

It isn’t hard to make a pretty card with some dies and an embossing folder.





I dry embossed the Basic White card front (#159228) with the snowflakes images from the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder (#155433). This was matted with Balmy Blue card (#147007). The Metallic Mesh Ribbon (#153550) was wrapped around the card front, then attached to the Basic White base card.

The snowflakes are cut with the Stitched Snowflakes Dies (#156455) using Silver Foil Specialty Paper (#156457). These were attached to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108). The Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#144220) were coloured with the Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends (#154830) before attaching to the snowflakes and card.

“Joy” is from the Bright Baubles stamp set (#156350) and stamped with Balmy Blue ink (#147105). The circle is from Textures & Frames stamp set which was from Sale-a-bration, and also stamped with Balmy Blue ink. This was cut with the Picture This Die (#155559) and attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

Eden’s Garden Bundle

Hi everyone,

I am using the leaves here on this card that I had left from yesterdays card.





The leaves were cut with the Eden Dies (#157831) using the Ever Eden 12”x12” Specialty Designer Series Paper (#159996). The background is also from the same DSP. I stamped the leaves from the Eden’s Garden stamp set (#157823) onto this DSP with VersaMark (#102283) and heat embossed with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#155555), then set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The sentiment from the same stamp set was also silver embossed onto Basic White card (#159228). The sentiment and Evening Evergreen card (#155575) were cut with the Hippo & Friends Dies (#153585). 

The die cut leaves were attached to the DSP card front with Mini Glue Dots (#103683). I threaded the Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon (#155780) through the sentiment and attached the sentiment to the Evening Evergreen label with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The ribbon was wrapped around the card, and the card front was attached to the Evening Evergreen base card.

The card was finished with the addition of the Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#144220).

Eden Dies

Hello friends,

Here is another card using some of the early release Eden’s Garden collection (#160849).





Using the larger die from the Eden Dies (#157831) I cut the Ever Eden 12”x12” Specialty Designer Series Paper (#159996). I put the leaf cut out aside for another card and used the outside of the DSP and attached it to a piece of Basic White card (#159228). I then adhered the Adhesive Sheet (#152334) to the back of the Gold paper from the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper (#156844), then cut with the same die, this time using the leaf cutout. I attached this onto the white card matching it up with the DSP cut out.

“Happy” & “Birthday” are from the Biggest Wishes stamp set (#155052). “Happy” is stamped with Evening Evergreen ink (#155576) and “Birthday” is stamped with Soft Succulent ink (#155778). The Genial Gems (#155500) were added to the card. The base card is Evening Evergreen (#155575).

An easy and pretty card.
