Birthdays ARE the best days! Today’s card is sneak peek of the beautiful new Flower & Field Designer Series Paper that will be FREE starting in January 2021 as part of Sale-a-Bration!
This paper is covered with flowers – and lots of them. One of the colors in the paper is the 2020-2022 In Color called Bumblebee. This color frames the card and is the circle background for the sentiment. It looks amazing against the black background of the designer paper!
The sentiment here is from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set. This is one of my favorite stamp sets!
Behind the sentiment is a precut figure from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. The figure has been reversed, so the gold is at the back and the white is face up. The white picks up the white blooms in the paper and goes beautifully with the theme of wildflowers.
Today is the release of the Exclusive Curvy Celebrations! This early release is available as individual items, a stamp and die bundle, or an entire bundle called the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle, so you can choose your options! The birthday card above was created with the Quite Curvy Bundle. This early release will be included in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.
The card below was created using the Curvy Christmas Stamp Set, the Curvy Dies, and the Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper.
The Curvy Christmas Stamp Set and the Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper are exclusive offerings and are only available November 3, 2020 – January 4, 2021.
All of these fabulous items are available in a complete bundle (this is what I got!). This is a perfect bundle to use for your holiday cards, birthday cards, and all kinds of other cards!
Today I have for you an exciting sneak peek of a new suite being released on November 3rd, and you are going to LOVE it! The suite has two stamp sets, a die set, and some gorgeous designer series paper!! And all just in time for the holidays!
The first card was made with the Curvy Christmas stamp set, and the card above is a birthday card made using the Quite Curvy stamp set. Here’s a video – a rerun of my Facebook Live – showing you how I made the holiday card:
The Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper is so nice, classic, in gorgeous holiday colors: Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand, and Shaded Spruce.
Black and white buffalo checks are so “IN.” For today’s card they form the backdrop for a pretty fall floral arrangement.
To effectively stamp the Buffalo Check stamp, it’s best if you use the Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool. This way you can stamp several times to get the desired coverage.
The cute little pumpkins were cut with the Autumn Essentials Dies, and the background leaves were cut with the Forever Flourishing Dies. I think I’ve told you before that I’ve cut leaves with these dies from all shades of green, and I keep them handy to pull out when I need them 🙂
The flower is from the So Much Love Stamp Set (that you can get FREE with your Starter Kit during the month of September 2020!). The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. It’s stamped on Petal Pink card stock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then punched out with the Classic Label Punch.

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our theme is the “new 2020-2022 In Colors.” The Design Team is showcasing the new family of In Colors from the new catalog. We know you will love them as much as we do! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
My word for this year’s In Colors is “rich.” They aren’t quite gem tones, and they aren’t really deep, but they are rich colors Each one has depth, and blends well with other colors. For today’s card I’ve used the In Colors Just Jade, Bumblebee, and Misty Moonlight.
Today’s card uses the sweet new Posted for You Bundle. It has the cutest Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch 🙂 The “stamp” is featured right in the center of this square card. Here are the details on how to make this card:
The birds and leaves were stamped in Sahara Sand ink on two pieces of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. One image was lightly watercolored with Just Jade and Misty Moonlight ink, using the new Water Painters. On the second image, only the lower bird was watercolored with Bumblebee ink. It was then fussy cut out of the rest of the image. This tiny bird was adhered over the bird on the first piece, using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional. A Magenta Madness In Color Enamel Dot was placed in the upper left corner of the stamp for the tiniest bit of bling!
The card base is 8-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ Whisper White card stock, scored at 4-1/4.” A 4″ square piece of Just Jace card stock was adhered to the card front with Multipurpose Glue.
A 3-3/4″ square piece of Bumblebee card stock was cut and dry embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder. Then a piece of Misty Moonlight card stock was cut with the largest square die from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered on a diamond angle over the Bumblebee piece, using Multipurpose Glue.
A Square Vellum Doily was trimmed down with Paper Snips and adhered in the center of the Misty Moonlight piece with tiny dots of Multipurpose Glue. Some Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker’s Twine (part of the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack) was wrapped twice around the Bumblebee piece and secured on the right side with a bow. The entire piece was then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the Just Jade piece. The postage stamp was adhered over the baker’s twine with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The Happy Birthday sentiment was stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock with Just Jade ink, and punched out with the Classic Label Punch. It was adhered to the card front, also with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals..
More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for July 8th – Gifts from the Garden when the design team will showcase cards or gift ideas from treasures found in the garden.
Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft room.
The Beautiful Friendship stamp set is – in one word – beautiful! Today’s card uses this stamp set to showcase the five retiring 2018-2020 In Colors. These colors will retire on June 3rd and I want to be sure you can grab the ones you want before they’re gone. Many times they sell out before they retire!
I’m wondering, which color is your favorite? Are you all stocked up on it? Mine is Lovely Lipstick, and you’ll be seeing more of it in the coming days 🙂 Here’s a video from my Facebook Live last Friday that demonstrates how to make today’s card:
One thing I love about this stamp set is the sentiments, they are so nice – ones that you can use over and over. You could create so many variations on today’s card: use softer colors,,, stamp all of the flowers on one side of the Whisper White card stock, SO many ideas!
