Stampin' Up! Floral Greeting cards using Happy Thoughts Stamp Set


  • Stampin' Up! Happy Thoughts Stamp Set
  • Flowering Dies create beautiful borders
  • Had you seen the Butterfly Bouquet from the upcoming Annual Catalog

What are you doing with the Designer Series Paper you earned during Sale-A-Bration?  I'm still finding fun layouts that show off my favorites.  I'm using one of the prints from Flower & Field Designer Series Paper to make a collection of fast, easy floral cards to have on had.  Changing the sentiments from Happy Thoughts Stamp Set makes this card do double..triple duty! I added a border from the Flowering Dies, and the sheer Pool Party bow adds just the right touch of lightness to this card.  Need to dress this up just a bit more?  Add one of the new butterflies from the Butterfly Bouquet.     

Floral Think Of You Greeting Card using Stampin' Up! Flowring Dies

This card uses a basecard of card of Pool Party cardstock. Then I die cut a Basic White Boarder using the Flowering Dies for the bottom of the card.   TIP:  lay your boarder onto your Silicone Craft Sheet and then add glue to the backside. Keep your border in one place while applying glue.   I use Multipurpose Liquid Glue straight from the bottle.  However, you can also use a sponge to add glue to your border.  The Silicon Craft Sheet keeps your border from sticking to the surface of your scrap paper.  I cut a strip of one of the prints from Flower & Field Designer Series Paper for the top part of my card.

I used the ovals from the Stitched Shapes Dies to create a label for my sentiment. I selected different sentiments from the Happy Thoughts Stamp Set and stamped them onto the oval labels using Shaded Spruce ink.  I popped the label up on Dimensionals and attached it to the center of the card.

I created a triple bow using 3/8" Pool party sheer Ribbon and attached it using Glue dots to the side of the sentiment.  stamped the butterfly and the humming bird in Tuxedo Black Memento ink,  then colored them lightly using Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends.   I fussy cut the images, and mounted them on Dimensionals.    Then I added a few Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Flyin' High!

  • Enjoying my free Sale-A-Bration stamp " Sky is the Limit"
  • April Paper Pumpkin packs an extra punch (not really a punch; but it does pack an extra, free stamp set!)

Masculine card with Sky is the Limit set

I needed a couple of masculine cards this week.  One for my bother's birthday and one for my dear husband who has had to put up with me and my oversize shoulder brace after rotator cuff surgeryEven with the awkward brace I've managed to spend a few hours each day in my craft room.  I'm hoping the precision cutting and pendulum swings while using the paper cutter count towards exercises  for my healing shoulder.  Dear husband has helped remind me to take my meds, do my exercises,and has run to Wal-mart for more ice to keep the swelling down in my shoulder.   He's fashioned plastic coverings for my wound so I can shower, he's crafted coverings for the pressure points jabbing me from all sharp corners of the arm brace. What demented doctor invented these awful braces, anyway?  Could they make them any less comfortable? So I made him a special thank you card letting him know how grateful I am for his special care.  (Love that man... I really picked a good one )

Enjoying my free stamp set, Sky is the Limit, a 2016 Sale-A-Bration set

Once I finished stamping the bi-plane image, I used my Wink of Stella glitter pen to add a small amount of bling to the plane and to the dark lines on the maps.

  • Stamps: Sky is the limit
  • Paper:  Hello Honey, Delightful Dijon, Basic Gray, Very Vanilla, Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper (133704)
  • Ink:  Basic Gray
  • Accessories:  Wink of Stella Glitter Pen - Gold, Dimentionals, Ovals Collection Framelits Dies (129381), Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, Magnetic Platform  130658.
Final thought:  Airplane travel is nature's way of making you look like your passport photo.

Paper Pumpkin packing extra punch in April!

I'm looking forward to April's Paper Pumpkin kit.  It will include a free stamp set commemorating Paper Pumpkin's 3rd year anniversary and 1 millionth kit.  You can still order the April kit until April 10 and get the free stamp.  Its a surprise; we haven't seen the images yet.  Look for the Paper Pumpkin category in the left hand navigation bar on the shopping page and place your order for April by April 10.  Order month to month or by 3 mo., 6 mo or yearly subscription.  These kits also make great gifts for your crafting friends.
