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!

Stampin'Up! Touches of Texture Floral All Occasion card

This Stampin’Up! Touches of Texture Floral All Occasion card was a big hit at our recent class.  I love the fun spattered look!

I started this card with a Whisper White Thick cardstock cut at 11″ x 4.25″. Score and fold at 5.5″ Cut a second whisper white cardstock at 5.25″ x 4″ and stamp the flowers towards the top using Momento ink.

Use Melon Mambo large spatter, Island Indigo small spatter, and an Old Olive marker for the leaves!  Add the melon mambo along the bottom cut at 1.5″ x 4″.  Wrap the White Organza ribbon around and attach to the base.  I used a small piece of Whisper White twine to bunch up the ribbon before I attached the Mambo bow with a glue dot.

Stamp the sentiment on a strip of white paper and flag the ends.  I like to add a dimensional to pop up the middle and then curl up the ends.

Stampin’Up! Triple Layer Stamping technique friend card

Stampin'Up! Triple Layer Stamping technique friend card

This Stampin’Up! Triple Layer Stamping technique friend card is super easy to create.  And using a stamp set like Bunch of Blossoms works particularly well for this!

Probably one of the easiest ways to create this layered look is to start with a bottom layer of Cardstock (or DSP) cut at 5.5″ x 4.25″.  And, the next layer would be the stamping layer cut at 5.25″ x 4″, followed by another layer of the same cardstock (or DSP) cut at 4.5″ x 3.25″.  The 4th layer is the stamping layer cut at 4.25″ x 3″, then another layer of Cardstock (or DSP) cut at 3.5″ x 2.25″.  Also, the last stamping layer is cut at 3.25″ x 2″.

Finally, take the three stamping layers (5.25″ x 4″, 4.25″ x 3″, and 2.25″ x 2″ and use a temporary adhesive to layer them evenly to do the stamping. Remember, bold images really help to hold the design together.

Assembling the Stampin’Up! Triple Layer Stamping technique friend card

After the stamping is done take each stamped layer and attach it to the cardstock (or DSP) layer that is .25″ larger.  Finally, you will end up with 3 stamped layers with a border.  Finally put dimensionals on the back of each layer if desired and use ribbon and a knot to embellish.  Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Stampin’Up! Bunch of Blossoms Perfect Day card

Stampin'Up! Bunch of Blossoms Perfect Day card

This Stampin’Up! Bunch of Blossoms Perfect Day card is lovely without being flashy!  I love the Blossom builder punch, particularly for leaves of all colors!

The Bunch of Blossoms stamp set is made up primarily of 3 step stamping which adds so much depth to the images.  The trick is just finding the right combination of 3 colors.  For this card I kept it simple in shades of brown using Crumb Cake, Tip Top Taupe, and Early Espresso ink.

Begin with Early espresso cardstock cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″.  Emboss a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Boho Chic Embossing Folder.  And then add a layer of the Moroccan DSP.  Wrap the Very Vanilla Stitched Ribbon and attach the embellishments.

Remember to decorate your envelope!
