Supply List to Make All Four Cards

Stampin’ Up! Reverse Words

Image of the Whisper White and Peekaboo Peach card stock and Peekaboo Peach ribbon used in this card project.

This quick and easy card was created using one of the free Sale-A-Bration stamp sets called Reverse Words. In order to help to keep the card clean and simple, I used a duo of colors for my palette—Peekaboo Peach and Whisper White.

Card front sporting the color Peekaboo Peach and the sentiment "Cheers."

The card stock (cuts listed near the end of the post) used for this project were Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White, and the 2016–2018 In Color designer series paper stack.

The sentiment, “Just a Note,” is from the Better Together stamp set was used on the Whisper White interior message panel.

I find rounded corners soft and pleasing. Stampin’ Up! has two products that we may use for this purpose—the Project Life Corner Punch or the corner punch that is part of the Envelope Punch Board.

The end of the annual Sale-A-Bration promotion ends on March 31st. If you’ve not already taken advantage of the promotion, hurry to see how many ways you can earn free products.

Mat 5-1/4″ x 4″

Stampin’ Up! Perfect Mix

Gold and white card with a bit of gold ribbon. An egg carton is stamped in black with one egg covered with a bit of gold polk-a-dot paper. The sentiment reads, "You're One in a Dozen"Every now and then, I like to express a little bit of humor (all-be-it rather dry) in my cards. To that end, the somewhat corny stamp set Perfect Mix was just right for a masculine card that I created for a wonderful next door neighbor who will have a birthday very soon.

Stamped message reading, "Happy Birthday" in deep mustard color

 

The interior of the card carries the Happy Birthday sentiment. You’ll not that I also added a vertical strip of the DSP to the left to create a little more interest to the page.

Stampin’ Up! Supply List

Stampin’ up! Penned & Painted for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Logo for Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

The Penned & Pained stamp set by Stampin’ Up! is just perfect for a spring card. The card I designed for this blog hop contains a very generic sentiment on the card front so that the card is ready for just about any occasion.

Flower stamped in Wisteria Wonder on a white oval that is adhered to the card. The bottom of the card front is layered with a green and white polk-a-dot paper and adorned with a pice of white satin ribbon. The sentiment on the card reads, "Hoping Your Day Is Perfect."

My modus operandi when working on a stamping project is to, first, cut out my card stock and collect scraps of the needed colors from my scrap bin. Secondly, I stamp as much as I can before assembly.

In this instance, the sentiment is stamped directly on the upper forth of the Whisper White panel for the front of the card and the flower is stamped on a scrap of Whisper White that will accommodate the largest Stitched Oval die.

Let’s look at the stamping of the flower (also discussed in an earlier blog post last week).

 

 

 

 

 

 

The images immediately above demonstrate the two step stamping process that is used with the Penned & Painted stamps.Fortunately the stamp has an arrow at the top of each of these stamps that is used to assist you in lining up the second stamp (outline) for a cleaner image. The stem and leaves also use two steps for stamping in the same manner (the green background is used only to set off the piece of Whisper White for photographing, it has nothing to do with the project). After stamping the flower and its stem and leaves, use the largest Stitched Oval die to cut out the image.

Assembly

  1. Adhere the Serene Scenery DSP panel to the bottom (long side) of the Whisper White panel.
  2. Adhere the ribbon across the front of the card just below the top of the DSP panel.
  3. Adhere the Whisper White Stitched Oval with flower to the scalloped Pear Pizzazz oval.
  4. Use dimensionals to adhere the oval layers to the card front.
  5. On the interior Whisper White message panel lie a coordinating piece of designer washi tape across the bottom (long edge) and adhere this message panel to the inside of the card.

A list of Stampin’ Up! supplies and the card stock cuts are found later in this blog post.

This lovely card can be used for almost any occasion.
