Although Stampin’ Up!® offers a variety of Designer Series Paper packs, there are just times when you can’t find the right design or you want to use different colors. To solve this you can make your own designs using stamp sets. This is exactly what I decided to do using the Lovely You stamp set. Lovely You has a lot of smaller leaf and flower images that are perfect to make your own DSP. Plus it has eleven different sentiments which can cover any occasion or sentiment you want.
The background on this card was quick and easy to make. I first randomly stamped one of the flower images in Mango Melody ink on a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Basic White card stock. Then I stamped another one using Coastal Cabana followed by Granny Apple Green and the smallest stamp using Highland Heather ink until I felt that the background was done. I cut the piece down to 3.75″ x 5″. Next I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink on a 3/4″ wide piece of Mango Melody card stock. Then I cut out one end using the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. I then punch out a 1″ piece of Granny Apple Green card stock and layered them together. I layered the background piece onto a 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ of Mango Melody card stock and a Granny Apple Green card base.
World Of Good is a suite of products that are in the 2020/2021 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. This suite includes the stamp set called Beautiful World, World Map Dies (you can save 10% by purchasing them in a bundle), World Of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper, Brass Foil Sheets, ribbon, an embossing folder and more. I love it when Stampin’ Up!® puts products together. It makes it so much easier than guessing what goes with what (especially for very unartistic people like me!).
Now that I actually am looking carefully at this card, I realized I did not use the Beautiful Word stamp set. The entire card is die cut except for the sentiment which is from the stamp set called Well Said. I thought it fit perfectly with the globes especially lately. I don’t know about you but I miss my family and this would be a perfect card to let them know.
To make this card I first cut out the globes in the new Brass Foil Sheets. The World of Good DSP has Brass in it so they match perfectly so I used that DSP as a background. I cut the globe stands out of Seaside Spray cardstock as well as the sentiment using a new punch called Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. This punch cuts out six different shapes for your sentiments and you can make them as short or as long as you want them to be. It is a wonderful invention!
Here is a quick and easy card to make when you don’t have a lot of time but need to or want to send a card to someone. I have been sending a lot of cards in the mail just to let people know I am thinking of them or thanking them for various things they have done. People appreciate being thanked and sending cards is a great way to let people know you care.
To make this card I first stamped two daisies from the stamp set Daisy Lane in Bumblebee ink and then punched them out using the Daisy Punch. I layered these together using a Stampin’ Up!® Dimensional. I ran a Whisper White card base through my embossing machine using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder. I cut a piece of 2020-2022 InColor Designer Series Paper in Misty Moonlight and put a strip of BumbleBee cardstock along one side before adhering it to the card base. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set called Ornate Thanks in Misty Moonlight ink onto a piece of BumbleBee cardstock and punched it out using the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. The entire card took less than ten minutes.
World Of Good is a new suite that is in the 2020/2021 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. This suite includes the Beautiful World stamp set, the matching dies called World Map (you can save 10% by purchasing the stamps and dies in a Bundle), Designer Series Paper, an Embossing Folder and some embellishments. The Suite thing started a couple of years ago and I love it. I used to have to guess what products would go with other products but now Stampin’ Up!® takes all the guess work out of that. It makes it so much easier.
To make this card, I used the World Of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper. I cut out the circle using a Circle die (which is now retired). The background DSP is from the other side of the circle paper. I love how they have 2 different sides on each piece. I stamped two the feathers from the Beautiful World stamp set in Crumb Cake ink and I embossed the third one using Copper Embossing Powder. The specialty DSP is really brass but they don’t have brass Embossing Powder which is why I used copper. I cut all three leaves out using the coordinating die.
The sentiment is from the new stamp set called Best Year. I stamped it in Misty Moonlight ink and then punched it out using the new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. This punch actually makes six different tags to use. It has two sides to it and you can cut out 1/2″, 3/4″ and 1″ tags out on both sides. Lastly I added the little copper swirl using one of the dies.
