Pals June Blog Hop – Pick a “B!”

Welcome to the Pals June, 2018 Blog Hop. This month we’re going to Pick a “B.”  Projects for Babies, Birthdays or Brides, that is.  Be on the look out for creations using new products from Stampin’ Up!

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Create a simple wedding card using Stampin Up Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper - Mary Fish StampinUp

My “B” card idea for today’s hop is “bridal” (although I think “birthday” would work just as well).  The  simple design is anchored by the gorgeous paper from Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper, new in the Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base using Petal Pink card stock and a Stampin’ Trimmer.  It cuts and scores.

Adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Very Vanilla card stock with Snail Adhesive to the card base.  Center and adhere (Snail) a 3 x 4 pattern from Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.

Cut Old Olive card stock to 3 1/2 x 4 1/2.  Create a frame by cropping the center with the rectangle die from Sliding Door Framelits Dies, the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and the Magnetic Platform.

Emboss frame with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder in BOTH the portrait and landscape directions (back and forth in each direction).  This gives a beautiful, linen finish!  Adhere a 4″ piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon to the back of the frame.  Here’s a WOW!  video with tips on using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Crop “dream” sentiment using Thick Very Vanilla card stock, the “dream” die from Chase Your Dreams Framelits Dies, Precision Base Plate (perfect for detailed dies) and the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  Adhere to sides of frame over the burlap ribbon.

Add a Calypso Coral Brad (Basic Brads) to the bottom right corner.  Center and adhere embossed frame over floral pattern with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the envelope liner die from Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot, crop more of the same pattern (5 1/4 x 4)  from Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.   Adhere with Snail to the inside flap of a Very Vanilla Medium Die.

Tranquil Tulips in Basic Black

Stampin Up Tranquil Tulips Love Wedding Card Idea - Mary Fish StampinUp

I’m feeling the “love” of the Tranquil Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set.  Earn this stamp set FREE when you spend $150 or more using Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Rewards!  I created today’s card for a wedding this weekend and love the classic and elegant look of Basic Black and Crumb Cake.  Of course, the tulips make my heart go pitter pat as well!

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.


COMING UP TOMORROW:  I’ll share a new 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial showing you some colorful possibilities with the Tranquil Tulips Photopolymer Stamps Set.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • Tranquil Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set is a two-step stamp set with a built-in “weathered” look.  I layered two images to create each tulip.  So easy to do with photopolymer (clear) stamps.

  • “Love” is from Lovely Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I created a Basic Black scalloped frame using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies.Stampin Up Tranquil Tulips Love Wedding Card Ideas - Mary Fish StampinUp

Beautiful Wedding Card with a Flourish!

Stampin Up Flourishing Phrases Wedding Card - Mary Fish stampinup

Stampin’ Up! Flourish Thinlits Dies take center stage on today’s clean and classic wedding card.  GET THEM NOW!  The Flourish Thinlits Dies along with the coordinating Flourishing Phrases stamp set (not used on the card) are still available for purchase as a bundle at 10% off.  They will both carry over to the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog but without the bundled pricing.  The new catalog will be available June 1.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • The Shimmery White card base gives a subtle touch of glimmer, beautiful for a wedding card.
  • Basic Black, Crumb Cake and Shimmery White card stock provide a clean and modern look.
  • Using the Fine Tip Glue Pen on the die cut flourish gives just enough adhesion without the any glue “ooze.”

  • The sentiment, from That’s the Tag photopolymer stamp set, is stamped in Basic Black Archival ink. That’s the Tag photopolymer stamp set is retiring and currently 15% off.  See which Stampin’ Up! products are retiring (up to 50% off) here.
  • Embellishing with Very Vanilla 1/4″ Satin Ribbon and a few Pearl Basic Jewels add a simple yet elegant touch.  Very Vanilla 1/4″ Satin Ribbon is also on the retiring product list and 40% off while supplies last.  The Pearl Basic Jewels are sold out (retiring).  However, there will be an updated version of the pearls (and rhinestones) in the new Annual Catalog.

  • The inside sentiment and “congratulations” across the Whisper White Medium Envelope came from the So In Love stamp set.  The So In Love stamp set is on the retiring products list and 25% off.
  • Perfect placement on the envelope!  An easy way to space the sentiment is to stamp the middle first making it a snap to line up words on either side.
  • Another small flourish cut from the Flourish Framelits Dies keeps the interior polished and pretty.
