Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set

Today I made a card that twinkles like Christmas.  In fact, I'm going to place an order for some more Brass Foil Sheets after seeing how beautiful and festive the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder works with this foil.  Today I'm creating a Sunflower using Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set and the coordinating Sunflowers Dies.  I love the way the Sunflower dances on the gleaming diamonds.  This is one of those cards you need to see in person to appreciate.  I used the new Lovely Labels Pick A Punch to create the label for the sentiment.  I couldn't decide if the 1/4" Bumblebee Gingham Trim looked best on this card or the Early Espresso 1/4" Faux Sued Trim, so I make one card with each.  I'm enjoying this set more than I ever thought I would.             

The basecard for this card is Early Espresso.  Then a layer of Brass Foil Sheets dry embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.      

The large Sunflower was stamped  in Saddle Brown Stazon Ink onto Bumblebee Cardstock and die cut using the Sunflowers Dies.  The layered sunflower frame was die cut out of Brass Foil Sheet.  A quick tip to conserve on Brass Foil Sheets:  Die cut the sunflower frame out of the same foil sheet used as your background layer.  Your Bumblebee Sunflower die cut will fit back into the die cut whole perfectly and you will use less Brass Foil Sheets.            

To add dimension to the Bumblebee die cut, I colored it with Mango Melody Blends and added Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends Marker for highlights.  I added Cinnamon Cider Stampin Blends in the center of the Sunflower.  The Brass Foil Sunflower Frame was added with glue in the center, and I left the edges lose.   

I used a sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set.  I stamped it in Cinnamon Cider Ink and then used the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch to create a sentiment shape that fit perfectly on my card.  This punch will punch 6 different style and size labels, making it a must-have purchase from the annual catalog.   This card surprised me so much.  I didn't think I would love the Brass Foil Sheets and the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder as much as I do.  You'll create stunning cards with just a few stamped images, a bit of ribbon and an embossing folder, and your friends and family will feel so special when they receive one of your lovely, charming, handmade cards.     

If you live in the USA and don't have a demonstrator and want a copy of the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, contact me.   I would love to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lattice

  • Stampin' Up! Lovely Lattice - free Sale-A-Bration selection
  • Gingham Gala 6 X 6" Designer Series Paper
  • Join Stampin' Up!;  New Demonstrators select $175 in products for $99

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lattice Stamp Set

I was looking back over cards we've made in January classes and I realized that I hadn't posted this card on my blog.  It is such a fast, simple card to create that you'll want to give this one a try.  And the best thing about this card is that you can earn the Lovely Lattice stamp free as a Sale-A-Bration selection with a $50 order.  The papers are from the Occasions catalog and you can view all of the free Sale-A_Bration Selections in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure  

I used a basecard of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  Then I lightly laid the strip of Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper on the left side of my card so I would know where to stamp the Lovely Lattice image.  I stamped the Lovely Lattice image in Tuxedo Black Memento and colored it with Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Blends Markers,.  I used a Dark Mango Melody Blends Marker, a carry-over from the Holiday catalog, to deepen the color in the center of the larger flowers.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto the lower portion of the card front.        

A free Sale-A-Bration pick with a $50 order makes a beautiful card

The strip of Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala 6 X 6" Designer Series Paper was then added to the side of the card after wrapping the tails of the Daffodil Delight Organdy Ribbon onto the back side of the gingham ribbon. 

The Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack (item 149623) was one of the most popular Sale-A-Bration items ever, with thousands of packages selected as free Sale-a-Bration items by both demonstrators and customers.  In fact, it has exceeded Stampin' Up! forecasts.  Although Stampin' Up! is filling back orders already placed with a second large shipment of the Ribbon Combo Packs, no new orders can be placed until sometime in March.  Once it is turned on again, it will be available while supplies last only.  I'll post an alert as soon as its available.  Until then, here's what I suggest.  Use the 1/8" Sheer Whisper White Ribbon (144172) pp 201 of the annual catalog, and color it with your Daffodil Delight Blends.  You'll have a beautiful ribbon to match your card.

Just a quick reminder, Sale-A- Bration runs from January through March 31, and because of the fabulous sign up special for new demonstrators along with the wildly popular products introduced with the introduction of the Occasions catalog and the Sale-A-Bration brochure, we're seeing a few more back orders than normal.  However, Stampin' Up! has large quantities arriving to fill most of these back orders, so feel comfortable placing an order, even if it is on back order.  Most of the back ordered items are arriving in early to mid February, giving you plenty of time to use them on your Spring cards and projects.  There are a couple of punches -- the Cake Builder Punch and the Butterfly Duet Punch-- that are sold out with estimated availability TBD.  However, both of these punches will carry over to the new Annual Catalog in June.  As soon as we hear something definite about availability of these two punches, I'll let you know.  

As always, if you like something you see, order it as early as possible to ensure it doesn't sell out. Also, Stampin' Up! will introduce several new Sale-A_Bration selections.  Demonstrators can pre-order these new items February 1, which is another great reason to consider signing up to become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator today!   

Need to place on order, today?  Remember that each $50 order earns you a free Sale-A-Bration selection.  Today's Lovely Lattice stamp set would make a great, free Sale-A-Bration selection with your $50 order.
