WOW! Video! Design a Shimmering Thoughtful Moments Hello Card

Create this card with the Around the Bend Dies and Thoughtful Moments Hybrid from Stampin' Up! Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

Honestly, it’s a challenge to photograph just how luscious this mix of Stampin’ Up! Textured Shimmer Paper in White and Textured Specialty Paper in Orchid Oasis is (both retiring).  It makes such a rich, textured statement for the flowers, leaves, envelope flap and the big “Hello” (Thoughtful Moments Hybrid Embossing Folder) Watch my latest WOW! video below for a quick demonstration on the “magic” of the “Hello!”

WHAT I LOVE! The sweet trios of Orchid Oasis Pearls (SOLD OUT)for the flower centers are the perfect complement to the shimmer paper.  Va Va Vavoom! As an alternative to the retired pearls, I suggest using the small white dots from the Classic Matte Dots (also retiring).  However, if you want perfect coordination, you can color the matte white dots with the Orchid Oasis Stampin’ Blends – one of my favorite tricks.

CUT YOUR CARD STOCK – DIMENSIONS:

  • Basic White Thick Card Stock:
    • Card Base – 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 (top)
  • 2022-2024 In Color 12 x 12 Textured Specialty Paper – Orchid Oasis:
    • Layer – 3 x 5
    • Die-cut Flowers – 3 1/2 x 2 (before die-cutting)
    • Envelope Flap – 5 3/4 x 2 1/4
  • Basic Black Card Stock:
    • Layer – 3 x 5 (before die-cutting)
    • Flower Center Die-Cuts – scraps
  • Textured 12 x 12 Shimmer Paper – White
    • Hello Die-Cut – 3 1/2 x 2 (before die-cutting)
    • Leaves/Stems Die-Cut – 3 x 4 (before die-cutting)

PROJECT TUTORIAL:

Begin by burnishing the fold of the Basic White Thick card base with a Bone Folder.

Adhere the Orchid Oasis Textured Specialty Paper layer to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard) and the Around the Bends Die to crop the Basic Black layer (2″ to stitched curve).

Adhere to the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Crop the Orchid Oasis Textured Specialty Paper, white Textured Shimmer Paper and the Basic Black card stock with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard or Mini) and the Around the Bend flowers, leaves (3 longer stems and 1 double leaf), and flower center dies.

Adhere the leaves with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals as shown.

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard) and the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid Embossing Folder and Coordinating dies to crop the “Hello” from the white Textured Shimmer Paper. TIP: I made sure to keep the textured lines running horizontally when I cropped/embossed it. Watch my Stampin’ Pretty 1 Minute to WOW Video here.

Adhere to the card with standard and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

POP OF PERSONALITY! Embellish each flower center with three Orchid Oasis 2022-2024 In Color Pearls. (SOLD OUT!)

PERFECT POLISH! Adhere the 5 3/4 x 2 1/4 Textured Specialty Paper to the Basic White Medium envelope flap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. IMPORTANT: Add glue to the flap first, not the Textured Specialty Paper. Center and line up the Basic Borders curved edge die, tape to secure (Post-It Tape) and crop with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard). Watch my Stampin’ Pretty WOW Video here.

  1. I love your cards! They help us so much. LOOKING for a solution. I have all the stamps sets that I purchased and we have a card ministry so it takes so much time looking through the sets to find one we want and that does not leave time to make cards. lol I have them in same size boxes alphabetically. Can you suggest an easier way. I thought by event but so many are multi function. Grrr HELP! lol

    • Hi Jeanne,
      Some people photocopy the front of the stamp set and put them in the binder so they can just page through the binder to find a stamp that would work instead of looking through boxes or the stamps themselves. Hope this helps! Mary
