Celebrate Summer Sorbet

Summer Sorbet heart



Lots of different Stampin’ Up! stamp sets and accessories going on in this simple card.  Sometimes one set just won’t do!  Summer Sorbet is a set of really great bold images, but you’ll need to grab your sentiments elsewhere.  And who can resist using the background stamp from Best Birds on everything.  You’ll need that stamp set just for this great stamp alone!

  • My color scheme is a bit unusual for this card, although I think it works – Soft Sky, Smoky Slate, Rose Red, Rich Razzleberry and Peekaboo Peach.
  • The pretty designer paper is from A Little Foxy Paper Stack.  Remember to use the plainer papers with other stamp sets – it doesn’t just coordinate with the fun Foxy Friends stamp set!
  • Love this fun-shaped heart, stamped using a Rose Red stamp pad.  Just cut it out quickly with Paper Snips and pop it up on Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment comes from Thoughtful Banners and is bundled with the Duet Banner Punch to save you 10%.  This combo will become a staple in your card designing!
  • I miss the scallop border punch like crazy.  But fear not – your Layering Squares Framelits will do the trick!  I’ve added a Peekaboo Peach Heart Enamel Shape to coordinate both with the Peekaboo Peach scallops and the heart motif.  These little shapes are so easy to use with self-adhesive backing – you’ll want them in ever color!

Your Perfect Day

your perfect day

Time to start thinking about wedding cards – June is the biggest wedding month of the year!  Stampin’ Up! has a couple of really nice wedding stamp sets in the 2015 Occasions Catalog.  Today I’m featuring Your Perfect Day.  And remember – you only have until June 2nd to order from the Occasions Catalog!

  • As with many of my cards, I began with a great wedding designer paper called Something Borrowed.  It contains various prints in Sahara Sand and Whisper White, perfect for adding your own wedding color scheme.  And with more sheets of each design, this paper is great for creating multiple projects, like wedding save the date, invitations or thank you cards.
  • The cake image is stamped with StazOn Ink, then a slight bit of coloring was done with the Aqua Painter and Sahara Sand Stamp Pad.
  • A piece of Doily peeks out of the side for a little soft interest.
  • I also used the Corner Rounder on the two right-hand corners.  This little addition can change up the look of your card so much!
  • The sweet hearts on the cake come from the Heart Border Punch.  I added tiny Pearls to each.
  • Stampin’ Up! Blushing Bride Cotton Ribbon is so soft and easy to tie.  Here I added a second piece to have a double knotted ribbon look.

Wedding wishes for my niece

My niece was married this past weekend, and here's the card I made them for their special occasion.

  • Whisper White background layered with Wisteria Wonder card stock began the base of this card.
  • Next layer is Whisper White card stock run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.
  • I punched through that top layer with the Elegant Butterfly Punch.
  • Sentiment is from Word Play and is stamped in Basic Gray then punched out with the Decorative Label Punch.
  • A Rhinestone adds bling to the ring!
  • Final touch is Wisteria Wonder 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon tied around the top layer.
  • I used Dimensionals for the entire top layer so there would be more depth to the butterfly, and I also adhered the sentiment with Dimensionals.  They really make a big difference!
