Rooted in Blissful Nature

There are still a few days left for the Buy 3 Get 1 Free promotion on select Designer Series Paper (see list at the end of the post). I just opened my pack of the Nature’s Poem paper and it is so gorgeous! I am thrilled that Blackberry Bliss was brought out of retirement to become a core color – the richness of it pairs perfectly with lighter colors. These double-sided papers are the perfect complement to the Rooted in Nature bundle. What’s super fun about the dies in this are the inclusion of embossing dies. Take a closer look at the die cut leaves on the card. I ran the cardstock through the Big Shot twice – once to cut the outline and a second time with an embossing die for texture. You definitely need the Big Shot Embossing Mats for this card. Wonderful effect! This card is the one I made as my thank you to my club members. I included a card in each of their orders. I always want them to know I’m thankful for them!

Garden Impressions Day 4

Today is my final day of highlighting the Garden Impressions 6” x 6” Designer Series Paper Stack. I thought the subtlety of Soft Sea Foam as the background color would help balance the boldness of the Melon Mambo roses. This sentiment from the Stitched All Around stamp set is the perfect counter-balance of whimsy. As you look back over the past few days, you will notice that all the cards use not only the same Designer Series Paper, but also the same ribbon and I took a mix-and-match approach with the Stitched All Around bundle of stamps and dies as well as the Enjoy Life and Rooted in Nature stamp sets and the Layering Ovals Framelits.  With just a few tools, the options are endless!

If you missed the previous posts, you can see the cards here for Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3.

Garden Impressions Day 3

Are you in love with the Garden Impressions 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Stack yet? The card I’m sharing for Day 3 uses all the same products as yesterday’s card, but with Pacific Point cardstock in place of Soft Sea Foam. I am in love with the font on all the sentiments in the Enjoy Life stamp set and this particular one is simply beautiful.

Garden Impressions Day 2

Today’s card shows off the sweet side of the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper Stack. The pinks and oranges are positively lovely with the Soft Sea Foam background and pop of boldness with the Shaded Spruce leaves. The font of the sentiment from the Enjoy Life stamp set is flawless with the roses and fits perfectly in the die cut from the Stitched Labels Framelits. Shaded Spruce has easily become my favorite new Core Color shade of green.

Garden Impressions Day 1

While the month of July is Stampin’ Up!’s buy 3 get 1 free promotion for select Designer Series Paper, I thought it would be the perfect time to show some cards that focus on the bold, bright punch of color in the Garden Impressions stack. I’ll share more in the coming days.

Garden Impressions Day 1
This card makes me smile just looking at it, as it takes me back to my Junior High School days. Back then, I loved to sew and make my own clothes. With the joys of Pinterest, I was actually able to find the exact Butterick pattern that I had. And, with it being the 80’s, you know it was all about mixing and matching bold, bright gorgeous colors just like the ones featured in this card. Thanks for taking a walk down memory lane with me!

Abstract Sunshine

Oh, Goodness! The Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper is beyond gorgeous! It was created to coordinate with the Abstract Impressions stamp set and Springtime Impressions Thinlits dies. However, it is perfect with so many other stamp sets, too. The Stitched All Around bundle includes a “Sunshine” sentiment and cute circle die cut that I thought would look adorable with the DSP. And I must say, the blues and greens on this particular one make me too happy. I simply HAD to add a panel of the DSP onto the envelope flap as well. And to top it all off, Stampin’ Up! is having a DSP sale for the month of July – buy 3, get 1 free! I’ll have more details for you on July 1st.

My favorite part of this suite is the beautiful Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. There’s touches of pearlized beauty on these thick sheets and I cannot say enough about them! I kept today’s card simple, with just a touch of ribbon peeking through on the sides of the “friends” die from the Lovely Words Thinlits. I really wanted to emphasize the pearl accents on the paper. Love Love Love! I darkened the color on this photo so that it’s a little easier to see the pearlized flowers.
