World of Dreams and Pretty Petals

World of Dreams1

I love the combination of World of Dreams stamp set and Pretty Petals designer paper from Stampin’ Up! – the images look so nice with the paper prints! This is a very special card I designed to give to a friend who is moving away.  There’s a going away party for her this week, and I wanted to be sure to be ready with something particularly nice.  Because of that, I pulled out all the stops, decorating the envelope front and back as well as the inside of the card.

  • The color scheme in the Pretty Petals paper is Mint Macaron, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Basic Black and Very Vanilla.  It’s easy to find what your layering colors should be from the designer paper colors!
  • I stamped tone-on-tone with Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom layer.
  • The birds and nest image was stamped in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder and the Heat Tool.  Don’t forget to swipe your cardstock with the Embossing Buddy so that little bits of black won’t adhere where they don’t belong.  Another tip to embossing:  keep a clean, unused small paint brush handy to flick off specks before you heat emboss.
  • The little flower is punched out with the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, and the center is a small White Perfect Accent colored with a black Sharpie.
  • With this gorgeous paper, I lined the Very Vanilla Envelope with coordinating Pretty Petals designer paper using the Envelope Liner Framelit and the Big Shot.  I cut my paper at 3″ x 6″ and used SNAIL Adhesive only on the top and the two “winged” sides, not on the bottom, so that it can slide easily into the envelope.

  • And here’s the front of the envelope.  I carried the greenery theme into the corner to dress up even the front.

  • Since the card base was in Basic Black Cardstock, I lined the inside of my card with Very Vanilla Cardstock and stamped the greenery motif again.  The sentiment is so perfect for my friend who is heading out with her family to start a new job in another state.  They’re really excited about going and the possibilities it holds for the family.  I’m going to miss her though!

This card really shows off the beautiful All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack – perfect designer paper for card makers since it’s 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ and just $6.95 for 48 sheets!  I’ve made a card HERE using the same All Abloom paper but a different sheet from the stack.

  • This pretty silhouette image comes from World of Dreams stamp set.  This stamp set comes with a couple of terrific sentiments, but they took up too much space on my tag.  So I turned to what is sure to be everyone’s “go to” sentiment stamp set this year – And Many More.  There are 23 different sentiments all in this perfect set for $26.95 in clear.  And I love the “happy together” with the two birds on their nest – perfect for an anniversary card.
  • I believe this is my first card using the yummy new 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon.  Stampin’ Up! added so many new ribbons this year, and this is my very favorite.  It’s so nice and soft and comes in 12 different colors.  Would you like to receive a little of every color?  Then my Ribbon Share is for you!  You’ll get 2 yds. of all 12 colors for just $17.25.  While you’re at it, pick up a share of the new Thick Baker’s Twine (shown here in Strawberry Slush) in all of the 2013-15 In Colors – 2 yds. each of 5 colors plus 3 yds of each of the 7 new colors of the regular Baker’s Twine, all for just $6.25.  Click HERE to read more about my 2014-15 Stampin’ Up!

  • Did anyone catch my mistake on this card?  I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch for the Daffodil Delight cardstock between the two designer papers, and when I went to look up the item code for that particular product, I realized that it had retired!  I’ll have to find another favorite border punch to use in the future, but I couldn’t “waste” the opportunity to share my card with you!

  • A couple of sweet little Rhinestones finish off the hearts for this quick card.  I hope you liked seeing these two new stamp sets paired together!
