How cute is this Stampin’Up! Cool Treats Sweet & Frozen Treats Framelits card?  Pop it up, layer the paper, swirl the color, have some fun!

This was one of my color challenge creations and it uses colors outside my comfort box… lol… So this was a good experience for me!

Start with a base card in Whisper White cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold at 4.25″.  The next  Sweet Sugarplum layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  The Perfect Plum layer is cut at 4.25″ x 2.75″, and the whisper White layer is cut at 4″ x 2.5″.

Die cut your pieces from white paper and sponge the colors on, including the crumb cake color onto the bowl.

Stampin'Up! Remarkable You Calla Lily Card

This post highlights the sponging technique for the Stampin’Up! Remarkable You Calla Lily Card.  I really love the soft look of sponging!

Start with a Pool Party card base cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″. Cut the next layer of Calypso Coral at 5.25″ x 4″, and cut the next layer at 5″ x 3.75″.  Stamp the flowers and the sentiment on the smallest Vanilla layer using the momento ink.  

Add some ink to your sponge and swirl off most on a scratch paper so you wont get streaks of ink on your card…  (I will add a video to show the sponging technique 🙂   Always start sponging lightly.  If you want area of deeper color you can go back and add more, but you can’t take ink off!

Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Stampin'Up! Climbing Orchid Thinking of You card

I created this Stampin’Up! Climbing Orchid Thinking of You card for one of our weekly color challenges.  I am so excited to really sit down and play with this Climbing Orchid bundle!

Other than the framelits this is a quick and easy card to put together.  It is Clean and Simple in design.  Just start with a Thick white cardstock cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″.  The Berry Burst cardstock layer is cut at4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.  And the inside white layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.

Stamp the flower pieces on whisper white cardstock and cut out using the Orchid Builder Framelits.  I laid them out how I wanted them and stamped the stems in Pear Pizzazz.  Pop them up using the Stampin’ dimensionals

Stampin'Up! Birthday Blossoms Brick embossed card

Celebrate the big day with the Stampin’Up! Birthday Blossoms Brick embossed card!  Love these fun pansy flowers!

Start this card with a 8.5″ x 5.5″ crumb cake card base.  Score and fold at 4.25″.  The Basic Black layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  Finally the top Crumb Cake layer is cut at 5″ x 3.75″.  Emboss this with the Brick Wall embossing folder.

Stamp 2 pansies in white ink on crumb cake and 2 on black cardstock.  Punch out with the pansy punch.  Tip:  Each of the petals is different, so if you place a black mark next to the bottom petal (on the stamp) then it’s easier to line up in the punch!

Stamp and fussy cut the leaves.  Use an office hole punch for the black circles and add the pearls.  Stamp the sentiment on .75″ strip and layer on top of a .5″ black strip.  Flag the ends.  Remember to make the envelope pretty!

Stampin’Up! Bunch of Blossoms Falling leaves card

Stampin'Up! Bunch of Blossoms Falling leaves card

I absolutely love this Stampin’Up! Bunch of Blossoms Falling leaves card, it’s just one of those that makes my heart happy!

Start with a Mint Macaron cardstock cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″ to create a portrait card.  Cut the Very Vanilla layer at 5.25″ x 4″. Stamp your leaves onto this layer. I like to start with the lightest color in triple step stamping.  For the single leaves in between I used the two lightest colors and stamped off first! See the video tutorial below!

Once the stamping is done wrap the vanilla ribbon around and attach to the base.  Stamp the sentiment onto Very Vanilla and punch out.  Punch out another piece in Mint and cut that one in half lengthwise to create a frame.  Pop up and add a knot.  Remember, make the envelope pretty!
