Beautiful Bouquet Card Idea & Tip

 

At first, when I saw it in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, it was one of those intimidating stamp sets with 37 pieces.. but then, the magic happened! I started stamping with the Beautiful Bouquet Stampin' UP! stamp set and I fell in love! I've shared many cards with you featuring this set and Beautiful Bouquet bundle, and today I'm sharing another one!  I created this one while stamping with Cindee!

Cindee designed this card which also features the Card Front Builder framelits (frame) and several of the new Stampin' UP! In Colors.  She had this card prepped for us to make on one of our stamping days and look at this cool idea.. she used a muffin tin to sort and store all the stamped and die cut pieces!  So cool!

The secret to this beautiful card is both the color combo, and also the arrangement.  Just keep layering die cut flowers and leaves until you fill the card front with beauty!!  Some stamped images are just layered right onto the background card, some are added with dimensionals... this gives it a great layered look!

The frame is die cut with the Card Front Builder die found on page 13 in the 2017 Holiday catalog.  The Beautiful Bouquet stamp set is found on page 92 in the 2017-2018 annual catalog.  Colors and supplies are all shown at the bottom of this post - click any product photo for more product info or to shop in my online store.

Happy Birthday Card for Eric!

 

My sweet hubby celebrated his birthday at the end of July, and of course I sat down to stamp a card for him.  I had this image of 2 adirondak chairs from the Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layer thinlit set in my mind... 2 chairs side by side at the beach... well, you see.. I was thinking, "what a great anniversary card"..... um  HELLO>>> it's his birthday not our anniversary!!  GEESH!!  So... luckily  before I finished the card I just grabbed the Happy Birthday stamp from the Window Shopping stamp set and made it a birthday card.. but seriously.. I don't know WHAT I was thinking!?  LOL!

We had a great birthday weekend celebration complete with a trip to the Oakland A's game with fireworks, meals out and time spent with friends! We tried a new Italian place near us that was really good!

Eric birthday july 2017

 

So anyway.... a few tips for you if you want to create this card!

  • The texture image from the Stampin' Up! Touches of Texture stamp set is awesome for "sand".  I stamped Crumb Cake ink onto a torn piece of Crumb Cake cardstock for the "sand"
  • The Color Theory paper stack is great for creating a sunset sky and ocean water!!  Sponge some Pumpkin Pie ink onto the (yellow) Crushed Curry ombre paper for the sunset looking sky.
  • The Fine-Tip glue pen works great to make the sunshine and lemonade glasses "wet" and glossy
  • Die cut the adirondak chairs out of the Wood Texture paper stack for realistic looking wood chairs.
  • The palm leaves and grass are stamped using images from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set.

Can you see that awesome "sand"?  I love it!  So glad I pulled out the Touches of Texture stamp and tried that!

I used the swirl stamp from the Swirly Bird stamp set for the sun.  After stamping it in Tangerine Tango, I added glue from the Fine-Tip glue pen over the image and let it dry to make it glossy. I did the same thing for the 2 die cut lemonade cups - added Fine-Tip glue after stamping to make them glossy!

You Move Me bundle butterfly card

 

The Stampin' UP! You Move Me bundle is quite amazing!!  If you love interactive cards, you will want to watch the video in this blog post (below) to see how you can use the You Move Me stamp set and Move Me thinlit dies to create amazing animated cards!!!

Today I have chosen to use just one stamp and the butterfly die cut image from this bundle for a "non" interactive card.  I combined them with the faith sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set and a piece of Whole Lot of Lovely designer paper to create a colorful and striking card!
