Card created by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty (2)Use a die cutting machine & platform to crop a piece of Gold Foil and the flap of a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope.  Adhere the die cut piece onto the envelope making sure the placement matches the negative space created on the envelope flap when the flap is in the closed position.  It’s a pretty, coordinated detail and keeps the die cut flush with the envelope flap – less chance it will come off.

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.

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.
