Botanical Prints Product Medley - Saturday Simple Stamping

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share a Simple Stamping card with you using products from the Botanical Prints Products Medley plus a few additional supplies.  Creativity comes easy when you've got amazing coordinating products. Stampin' Up! doesn't want to brag, but coordination is one of their strong points. The Botanical Prints Product Medley is a perfect example. The medley includes stamps, paper, dies, and accessories for creating cards and more.  With everything included in this product medley it's perfect to make Simple Stamping Cards with when you are just starting out.  Because a majority of what you need plus more is right in the box.  Here's a look at my Saturday Simple Stamping card for this week.

Tips & Tricks: 

Since simple stamping is all about stamps, ink, and paper I found the products in the Botanical Prints Product Medley perfect to create some #simplestamping cards.  I cut a piece of the Botanical Prints Designer Series Paper down and added a matching mat layer behind my designer series paper to enhance the mix of black and white imagery with the bold beautiful colors on the paper.  I added my layer to a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock that I cut down to 4 x 5 1/4.  I simple stamped friend in Terracotta Tile Classic Ink at the bottom of this layer and added it to a Thick Whisper White Base that I cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  


For the inside of the card I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set (which is a Saleabration set this year and can be earned for Free with a qualifying order).  I added a couple of the matching floral images from the Botanical Prints Stamp Set on the inside of the card to tie it in.  I keep the color pallet simple and only used the one color ink.  When you are a beginner this makes your card making so easy because you don't have to hunt for matching ink colors or colors that coordinate.   But if you have followed me for anytime at all you know that I firmly believe as long as you pull your colors from a pack of designer series paper they will match because Stampin' Up! has done all the coordinating work for us.  So, you can rest assured that the colors you pick from the designer series paper will be a perfect match on your card or project.  


To create a perfect matching envelope I stamped the same botanical print in Terracotta Tile Classic Ink on the flap of the envelope.  This creates the perfect coordinating envelope and gives the person on the receiving end a little hint at what's inside.  If you need any of the products you have seen today you can order them in my online store by clicking on the items in the shopping list below.  Thank you for stamping bye don't forget to follow my blog for daily inspiration.

Feminine Simple Stamping Birthday Card - Layered With Kindness

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I wanted to share with you the feminine version of the card that I shared with you yesterday.  For today's version of this card I used the Layered with Kindness Stamp Set for all the images and the sentiment.  Create quick tags and greeting cards with graceful greetings from the Layered with Kindness Stamp Set. Stamp flowers and leaves for a finishing touch. This stamp set is also available in French. This is a Distinktive** stamp set; it has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images. **Patent pending  If you missed my card yesterday you can click here to view it.  Here's a look at my card for today.


I used the images from the stamp set to stamp my piece of whisper white cardstock to create my own dsp as I did with the card yesterday.  To make it a more feminine card I changed the stamp set, and the colors.  I used So Saffron, Melon Mambo, and Granny Apple Green inks on my card.


I took the stamped background and added it to a piece of Granny Apple Green Cardstock and then added the card front to a Melon Mambo Card base cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  I then stamped my sentiment onto a piece of whisper white cardstock in Melon Mambo ink.  I used the Lovely Label punch to punch it and a piece of So Saffron Cardstock.  I cut the So Saffron one in half and added it behind the sentiment.  I then added two pieces of the Granny Apple Green Ribbon to the front and added the sentiment on top.  To finish the card I add some of the Melon Mambo Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the front.  


Thanks for dropping by I hope that you have enjoyed my card and you will give it a try.  If you need any of the supplies you have seen today you can pick them up in my online store 24/7.

Flowering Foils Blooming Tag Thank You Card

Hello and welcome to my blog again today!  I have another card to share with you today featuring the Flowering Foils Speciality Designer Series Paper and Tags In Bloom Stamp Set Saleabration items.  I wanted to share with you the fun thank you card that i created for Kylie's International Blog Highlights today.  Please make sure you vote for my card.  Here's a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started out my card by coloring the designer series paper.  I find that this paper colors in so many ways; I've used blends, stampin' write markers, and ink to color it.  Get this high-quality patterned paper featuring various floral designs and a checker design. This printed paper is great for card making, scrapbooking, and other paper crafts. The rose gold and silver foil designs will make any project shine. You can even color the white areas using your favorite coloring tools. Earn this fancy paper FREE March 3–March 31, 2020, during part two of our Sale-A-Bration promotion!  After coloring I cut mine down to 4 x 5 1/4.  For my metric friends you will cut your DSP to 14.2cm x 9.8cm.  

I then matted my dsp to a piece of Soft Seafoam Cardstock cut at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 (metric will do 14.4 cm x 10 cm).  I then took some of the Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon and colored it with my Soft Seafoam Stampin' Blends.  I love to color white ribbon with my blends to get a custom ribbon that will match all my projects.  This is so easy to do since Stampin' Up! has perfect color coordination.  

After attaching the ribbon and tie a bow with the extra I added it to my layer and secured the bow on with a Mini Glue Dot.  I stamped my outside sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock using the Tags in Bloom Saleabration Stamp Set.  I stamped the outside image in Flirty Flamingo Ink and the sentiment in Soft Seafoam.  Then I used the Label Me Fancy Punch and punched it out.  I attached the sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

At this point it was time to attach everything to my Sahara Sand card base which was cut at 4 1/4 x 11.  For my metric friends you will do 10.5 cm x 29.8 cm and score in half.  


For the inside of my card I added a strip of the Flowering Foil Speciality Designer Series paper and my Thank you Sentiment from the So Sentimental Stamp Set (in Flirty Flamingo ink) onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock cut at 4 x 5 1/4 (or 10 cm x 14.4 cm).  


Thanks for dropping by again today, I hope that you have enjoyed my card and that you will give it a try.  Make sure to pop over to Kylie's International Blog Highlights and check out all the wonderful projects that have been created for this month's Highlights.  Also don't forget to vote for your favorite and my card you can do so by clicking here.  If you need any of the supplies I have used today you can pick them up in my online store by clicking on the shopping list below.  Remember that the Flowering Foil Speciality Designer Series Paper and Tags in Bloom Stamp Set are Sale-A-Bration items and can only be earned FREE with qualifying orders until March 31, 2020 or while supplies last.
