Painted Petals Thank You for Mother’s Day


I was thinking that a thank you card just might be the most appropriate Mother’s Day card there is!  We have so much to thank our mothers for and this pretty card would be perfect.

  • The Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog will be retiring on June 2nd, and one of my favorite suites to work with is the Painted Petals coordinated products.  Here I’ve used the Painted Blooms stamp set and the Painted Blooms Designer Paper, and there’s also a Spring Flowers Embossing Folder that coordinates beautifully.  And the stamp set is available in all three stamp types – wood, clear mount or photopolymer!
  • The color scheme is from the designer paper – Blackberry Bliss, Rose Red, Wild Wasabi and Soft Sky.
  • This stamp set has a lot of different components, and some can be used as base stamps for lots of other stamp sets.  Here, I’ve used the row of watercolor circles to create a border above the Soft Sky Cardstock strip, and this could be so useful on so many cards.
  • The Oval Framelits used with the Big Shot creates the backdrop for the pretty flowers.  There’s a stamp for the stems and a separate one for the flowers, so it’s easy to stamp them in different colors.
  • It’s not easy to see in the photo, but the flowers have just a touch of Dazzling Details to make them shine.
  • Love the font combo for the sentiment – it’s stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink.
  • Three Soft Sky Candy Dots finish up the card.  You’ll find them in the Subtles Collection of Candy Dots.

Wishing all of you mothers a beautiful day of being pampered and spoiled – you deserve it!

Bermuda Bay trio of cards

Bermuda Bay trio

Bermuda Bay is one of my favorite new core colors that Stampin' Up! added this month.  It is part of the Brights Collection, and man, did that collection change for me once this stunning color was added!  It was the "teal" that we were missing!  And to show you all how much I love this fun new color, I've created three cards using only Bermuda Bay and Whisper White to really show it off!

Bermuda Bay Bird

  • There are now Color Collection designer papers for each and every color and in fresh, modern prints!
  • I've used a wonderful new hostess-exclusive stamp set called Simply Sketched to create this simple but effective card.
  • Stamping in VersaMark ink and using Black Embossing Powder gives the bird a little lift and enables me to watercolor with my Bermuda Bay stamp pad and Aqua Painter more easily.
  • Circles are cut with the Big Shot and the new Circles Collection Framelits.
  • The sentiment is also from Simply Sketched – with this, a sympathy and a happy birthday sentiment, it's so versatile.

Item No. 130911 Circles Collection Framelits $26.95
Item No. 129669 Simply Sketched wood $14 hostess dollars OR
Item No. 129672 Simply Sketched clear $10 hostess dollars

Bermuda Bay polka dot flower

  • This card measures 5-1/4"x5-1/4" to give me some more room to design.  I wanted to see a lot of that pretty designer paper!
  • Gifts of Kindness is the featured stamp set here.  It includes one decorative image (the polka dot flowers) and lots of sentiments for both outside and inside your cards.
  • I've tied the polka dots in the flower and in the designer paper with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder used on the Whisper White background.
  • Love the addition of the pretty new Bermuda Bay 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon!

Bermuda Bay thank you

  • Last up I've used a favorite stamp set called Creative Elements.  There are truly so many different elements in this stamp set to coordinate with each other.
  • The butterfly is cut out with my paper snips – no punch available for this particular butterfly!
  • The thank you sentiment is stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder so you can really see it on the Bermuda Bay cardstock.
  • My new favorite accessory?  Candy Dots, hands down!  And we have them in all the core colors, so it's easy to match them up with your project.

Fall is my favorite time of the year – even if I live in an oak woods and have to rake leaves almost every day!  And I love the coordination of our fall products in this card.  I've used Wonderfall stamp set that coordinates with the Autumn Accents Bigz Die for the Big Shot, as well as our yummy fall designer paper called Orchard Harvest.  The sentiment comes from Day of Gratitude stamp set in the Annual Catalog. This card measures 5-1/4" square.

Simple Scalloped Square


Here's an idea for a simple thank you card.  You can make lots of these if you need thank yous for a big occasion, and they'll be done in a snap but still look fabulous.  Just begin by choosing a designer series paper package – the first card uses the Level 1 Hostess In Color Designer Series Paper Pack (earn this free for hosting a qualifying private stamping class!) and the second uses Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper.  It's easy to plan your card stock and ink colors – just take your palette from the designer paper of your choice!  Grab the Scallop Square Punch and punch out 5 different designs from the paper pack.  Remember, each piece of designer paper has 2 sides, so you have 12 choices in prints!  Adhere these squares with Dimensionals, then add a thank you sentiment.  I used Curly Cute and inked the two words up separately using a Stampin' Write Marker so I could stamp them on two lines instead of just one.  You can add a snip of ribbon like I did in the first card or leave it off as in the second.  Add some Jewels, either Basic Rhinestones or Basic Pearls, and you're done!

Item No. 121028 In Color Designer Series Paper Pack – Hostess Level 1
Item No. 117163 Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper $9.95
Item No. 119884 Scallop Square XL Punch $16.95
Item No. 117014 Curly Cute wood mount $19.95 OR
Item No. 120510 Curly Cute clear mount $14.94
Item No. 119246 Jewels Basic Rhinestones $4.95
Item No. 119247 Jewels Basic Pearls $4.95
