Soft and Sublte Flourishes

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   Today's card is a beauty! It uses three of the 2016-2017 In Colors:  Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo, and Peekaboo Peach, along with the wonderful "Fabulous Phrases" bundle. Did you know that you can save 10% when you purchase Stampin' Up product bundles? You can! What a deal!

I started with a Whisper White panel and stamped the large flower from "Fabulous Phrases" randomly in Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo, and Peekaboo Peach. I laid a piece of Vellum Card Stock right on top of the stamped panel, adhering it with strategically placed Glue Dots--right under where I've added a length of Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon. I added this piece to a Flirty Flamingo card base.

I cut a flower from the Flourishes Framelits from Flirty Flamingo and added it to the card with a Glue Dot in the center. I added a large White Perfect Accent to the center of the flower for interest and to cover the Glue Dot.

I stamped the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo onto a 1" strip of Whisper White card stock and flagged the end with the Banner Triple Punch. I added this to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

This card would have been beautiful without the Vellum Card Stock, but the addition of the Vellum softens the design and really steps it up a notch!

I hope you've enjoyed my series of four samples using four sets from the new Stampin' Up catalog. Remember, you can purchase any of the supplies used to make any of the cards featured on my blog by clicking on the pictures of the supplies below each post. This will take you directly to my online Stampin' Up store.

Or, better yet, you can schedule a party and invite a few friends to come and stamp. I'll show you a technique, you and your guests will make two make-and-take projects, and you can ooh and aah over all the wonderful Stampin' Up product I'll have out on display and in the catalogs. Contact me today! I'm booking stampin' events in September.

Flourished Sympathy

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   Today's card features three of the fabulous 2016-2017 In Colors:  Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, and Peekaboo Peach. These colors are stunning together--especially paired with the "Flourishing Phrases" stamp set!

I started with a Dapper Denim panel and stamped the large floral flourish stamp twice in Dapper Denim. I adhered this panel to a Peekaboo Peach card base.

Next I cut the large floral Flourish framelit (say that three times, fast!) from Emerald Envy and adhered it to the card using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

I stamped the sentiment in Dapper Denim onto a 1" strip of Whisper White card stock and flagged the end with the Banner Triple Punch. I adhered this directly to the card (no Stampin' Dimensionals--I know!!). I cut a small flower from Peekaboo Peach using the Flourish Framelits and added this to the banner.

For the finishing touches, I cut a 4" piece of Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon, knotted it in the middle, and snipped it on the ends. I added this to the card with a Glue Dot. Finally, I added a Rhinestone embellishment in the center of the flower on the banner.

Come back on Monday for the final sample using the "Flourishing Phrases" stamp set--it's a beauty!

Sugarplum Flourishes

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations  Today I'm sharing the second of four cards made using the "Flourishing Phrases" and matching Flourishes Framelits bundle. When you buy these products together in a bundle, you'll save 10%. This is a great set for all-occasion cards.

I stamped the large flower from the "Flourishing Phrases" stamp set in Sweet Sugarplum onto a Very Vanilla panel. I added the leaves and sentiment in Mint Macaron. Next, I cut a Mint Macaron lattice and leaf from the Flourishes Framelits. I adhered these to the card using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. I added a Basic Pearl Embellishment to the center of the flower.

I adhered the stamped panel to a Sweet Sugarplum mat and then onto a Mint Macaron card base. This card is so sweet and delicate--and so easy to create!

Flirty Floral

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   For most of the month, I've been featuring stamp sets from the new Stampin' Up 2016-2017 catalog. I've already showed four samples from three sets. Today I'm sharing the first of four samples using the "Flourishing Phrases" stamp set and matching Flourish Thinlits. If you purchase the stamp set and framelits together in a bundle, you'll save 10%. This set has a bunch of great sentiments and the floral images are really sweet.

For today's card, I stamped the large flowery vine in Pear Pizzazz onto a Whisper White Panel. I stamped the sentiment from the same set in Basic Black Archival Ink.

Next, I cut a Flirty Flamingo flower using one of the Flourish Thinlits and adhered it to the card with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. To add a little more interest, I added a Basic Pearl Embellishment to the center of the flower.

To finish the card, I adhered the stamped panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and then onto a Flirty Flamingo card base.

Come back tomorrow, Friday, and Monday to see the other samples made from this stamp set and thinlit bundle!

Moroccan Resist

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   Today I'm sharing the last of four samples made with the "Moroccan Nights" stamp set. This card shows how versatile the stamp set can be.

I stamped the large medallion from the "Moroccan Nights" stamp set in Versamark onto a Soft Sky panel. Then I sprinkled on White Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set the designs with my Heat Tool. I adhered this panel to a Whisper White mat and then onto a Night of Navy card base.

Next, I stamped a banner from the "Thoughtful Banners" stamp set in Pool Party onto a Whisper White scrap. I added the "thank you" sentiment in Pool Party, also from "Thoughtful Banners." (PRO TIP: Photopolymer stamps are bendable so you can easily fit them into the banners!) I punched this out with the Duet Banner Punch.

To finish the card, I adhered a silver Metallic Foil Doily, a folded piece of 1/4" Silver Natural Trim, and then the thank you banner.


I hope you enjoyed these cards. Come back tomorrow for the last four-sample series using one more new stamp set bundle!
