Delivering Sunshine Wishes!

Stampin Up Sunshine Wishes Sympathy Cheer Up Card Idea - Mary Fish StampinUp

To add a little “cheer” in someone’s life, I created this “sunshine” card using Stampin’ Up! Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies.  I used Crushed Curry to “bring on the sunshine” and Fresh Fig to personalize (she loves purple).

I love hearing from you. If you have a question or thoughts to share about today’s post, please, COMMENT HERE.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • The perfect weight!  I used “must-have” Thick Whisper White card stock for the standard card base (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″).

  • The die cut “sunshine” from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies was cropped twice with Thick Whisper White card stock.  I used the Big Shot Precision Base Plate to reduce the “bumps” you sometimes get with detailed dies.

  • For rich dimension . . . Wee bits of Snail adhesive were used to adhere the two “sunshine” die cuts together.  I find this quick, non-messy and a little “forgiving” if you need to nudge them a bit to line up.
  • The angled layer plays up the modern style of the die cuts!
  • The Sunshine Sayings stamp set offers the perfect coordinating message “is on its way!”  It’s cropped with a die from Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies and a pop of Crushed Curry (Regals Enamel Dots), finishes the look.

  • A Fresh Fig pattern from Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack dresses up the envelope flap.  I used my Paper Snips to carefully trim it to fit.

Sorry for Everything Sympathy Card

Stampin Up Sorry for Everything Sympathy Cards Ideas - Mary Fish StampinUp

The Sorry for Everything stamp set has the sentiments you’ll need for a sympathy card, belated birthday, loss of a pet, get well and more!  Today’s sympathy card mixes the bold “sorry” with “for your loss.”   Simple and easy.

I love hearing from you. If you have a question or thoughts to share about today’s post, please, COMMENT HERE.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • To create the cropped card base, trim Very Vanilla card stock to 4 1/4″ x 9″.  Score at 5 1/2″.   A Stampin’ Trimmer manages both with precision!  Thick Very Vanilla card stock is an ideal weight for a card base.

  • The left print pattern measures 3″ x 3 3/4″.  The right print pattern measures 1 1/2″ x 3 3/4″.  Each print is layered over Dapper Denim card stock that is 1/4″ larger.
  • I’m not afraid to use color on a sympathy card.  The Lemon Lime Twist and Dapper Denim patterns of Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper look modern and sophisticated on the card and envelope flap.  Watch my WOW! video here for tips on adding pretty paper to an envelope flap.

  • The “for your loss” sentiment was cropped with a die from Bunches of Banners Framelits Dies.  The same die crops the frame in Dapper Denim for a crisp border.

  • A single dot from Glitter Enamel Dots adds a dash of sparkle and interest.
  • I tucked a Dapper Denim stem (Flourish Thinlits Dies) behind the focal point for softness.

Inspired by Color Get Well Card

Stampin Up Flourishing Phrases Get Well Card - Mary Fish stampinup

Today’ cheerful get well card will surely help brighten someone’s day.   The color inspiration came from my Stampin’ Pretty Inspired by Color board on Pinterest.  This combination along with many more can be found on this Inspired by Color Board with more added continuously.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • Whisper White thick card stock is perfect for a solid card base.
  • The fresh pop of polka-dots in Crushed Curry from the Regals Designer Series Paper will bring a smile!  The Designer Series Paper Stacks in all Stampin’ Up! color collections are retiring.  See what else is retiring and on sale (up to 50% off on select items) while supplies last here.

  • The pretty flower from Flourishing Phrases stamp set was stamped four times in Tangerine Tango ink.
  • Snip It!  The flower was hand snipped with Paper Snips – the entire image once and just the center of the other three.
  • The leaves were cropped using the Flourishes Thinlits Dies.  Both Flourishing Phrases stamp set and Flourishes Thinlits Dies are available thru May 31 as a bundle for a 10% savings.  They will carryover and be available in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  However, there won’t be a 10% off bundle offered.
  • The sentiment, also from Flourishing Phrases stamp set, was stamped in Early Espresso ink and cropped with the Stitched Shapes and Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.

  • More good cheer.  Along with the sentiment, a stamped image and a bit of Designer Series Paper extend the good wishes.
