Inspired by Color Congrats Card & CASE

Create a simple congrats card using Stampin Up Bouquet Blooms stamp set & Gatefold Blossoms Dies - Mary Fish StampinUp Idea

It doesn’t get any simpler on a Saturday to create a card which is a CASE (Copy And Share with Everyone) of a Stampin’ Up! sample (below).

I loved this design using the Bouquet Blooms photopolymer stamp set and Gatefold Blossoms Framelites Dies.  Available now.  SAVE 10% when you purchase them as a bundle.  For a splashy new look, I used my “inspired by color” palette below.  For oodles of Stampin’ Up! color combination ideas based on fashion and home decor, please visit (and follow) my Inspired By Color Board on Pinterest.

MY STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base with Stampin’ Up! Thick Whisper White card stock and the Stampin’ Trimmer.  Layer and adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Basic Black using Snail Adhesive.

Stamp largest floral image  from Bouquet Blooms photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark ink on a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Whisper White card stock.  I stamped the image in two directions (it overlaps but is hidden below the circle) to get the same flowers top and bottom but feel free to play with this.

Heat emboss the floral image with a heat tool and Stampin’ Up! Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Adhere layer to card base with Snail Adhesive.

Adhere an approximately 7″ piece of Poppy Parade 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon (available Sept. 5) to card base, folding over as shown.

Stamp circle design from Bouquet Blooms stamp set in Poppy Parade ink on Whisper White card stock.  Crop with the largest die from Layering Circles Framelits Dies, the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and the Magnetic Platform to help keep the die in place over the image.

Stamp 8-petal flower twice in Mango Melody ink on Whisper White card stock.  Crop with the coordinating die from Gatefold Blossoms Framelits Dies.

Stamp “rose” twice in Poppy Parade ink on Poppy Parade card stock.  Crop with the coordinating die from Gatefold Blossoms Framelits Dies.  Adhere flowers to circle as shown using Snail Adhesive.  The Mango Melody flower on the left is popped up on a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Add a cluster of three silver pearls from Stampin’ Up! Metallic Pearls (self-adhesive) to the center of each Mango Melody flower.

Crop “congrats” using Poppy Parade card stock, the “congrats” die from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  Adhere to circle as shown.

Stamp “friend” from Bouquet Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White card stock.  Trim to approximately 1 3/8 x 1/2 and crop right side “flag” using the Tailored Tag Punch.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To get crisp, solid images, I used the Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus stamp positioning tool for ALL stamping above.   Learn more about the benefits of the Stamparatus here.

Summer to Fall Card using Stitched Seasons Framelits

After sharing the Stampin’ Up! video introducing the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (available Sept. 5) on yesterday’s post here, I felt it was good idea to create a card for you with it.  Right?

I also used products from the Limited-Time Blended Seasons stamp set and Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies.  These products will only be available now thru Aug. 31 or while supplies last.  Get the full scoop on the Color Your Seasons promotion.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base using the Stampin’ Trimmer and Thick Whisper White card stock.

Use the Stampin’ Up! Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine to add the gorgeous embossed pattern to a 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 piece of Thick Whisper White card stock.  TIP:  Run the embossing folder back and forth through the Big Shot to get pressure and texture from both directions.

Adhere the Tin Tile layer to a 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 piece of Mossy Meadow card stock.

Use the medium and small label dies from Stampin’ Up! Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies to crop patterns from Country Lane Designer Series Paper (beautiful for fall – available Sept. 5).  Run them through the Big Shot with the Magnetic Platform to keep dies in place.

TIP:  You can either layer the wood grain pattern on top of the Crushed Curry pattern (I adore how they “nest”) or crop the Crushed Curry pattern with both the medium and small (at the same time).  Then layer the wood pattern within the frame.

Adhere the die cuts from above with Snail Adhesive to the embossed (Tin Tile) layer.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive to card base.

Using the Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus, stamp the “wishing you” sentiment from Blended Seasons stamp set in Early Espresso ink on Thick Whisper White card stock.  Trim to 3 1/4 x 1 and crop the flagged end on the right side with the Tailored Tag Punch.

Crop the florals using the Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies and Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow card stock.  I used my Paper Snips to isolate the Crushed Curry flower and layered/adhered it over the Old Olive stem.  Adhere the Mossy Meadow floral die cut below the sentiment layer with Snail Adhesive.  Adhere the floral die cut with the flower with a Stampin’ Dimensional to the top of the sentiment.

Thread the smallest button from True Gentleman with Linen Thread and tie in a bow.  Adhere to the flower center with Mini Glue Dots.
