Today I am sharing a few cards using the new Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper (#149100). This DSP is simply beautiful with a lovely Monet look to it. The colors are vibrant and the images are soft, which makes it absolutely perfect to use in combination with so many stamp sets in my collection!This card combines the Perennial Essence DSP with the Painted Harvest stamp set (#144783). I added the new Perennial Essence Floral Centers (#149442) to the centers of the flower, and some Gold Metallic Thread to add a little texture.
Here is another pretty piece of the Perennial Essence DSP combined with the new Delightful Day Bundle (#151114). This bundle includes the Delightful Day stamp set AND the Delightful Tag Topper Punch. I added some die cuts from the Flourish Dies (#141478), some new Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon (#149496), some White Baker’s Twine (#124262), and the Tailored Tag Punch piece (#145667).
This last card combines the Healing Hugs stamp set (#148223) and the Celebrate You Thinlits (retired). I also added a piece of the new Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon (#149704) to the card.This is a Wiper Card, so when you pull the card open a little “wiper” comes up to reveal a surprise! Fun card to make, and this was the first time I tried this type of card. I was able to find some nice directions on a couple other blogs. You can see the directions for this card HERE.
The card doesn’t actually fully open up, so I added my sentiment to the back of the card.
I hope you give this card idea a try, it’s pretty fun, and easy to make too! Also, I hope you can see how the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper is a great DSP to use with so many floral stamp sets. If you are like me, you have a nice collection of flower sets, which will work well too. Have a great day and Happy Stampin’!
Well, today is the start of the new Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Catalog, and I’m so excited to start a new SU year with so many great new stamps and products. I made my order this morning, so I will be anxiously awaiting my new things to share with you in the coming days. If you want to see the catalog you may go HERE to download it. Also, just click on the catalog image in the right sidebar to place an order on my website.
I wanted to give you a little peak at one of the new stamp sets and framelit bundles called Free As A Bird Bundle (#151123) which is a combo of Free As A Bird stamp set and Stitched Nested Labels Dies.
I LOVE using the Stampin’ Blends on these images. They give these nice outline stamps a great look.
This card adds some of the beautiful coordinating Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper (#149592). I used the Stitched Nested Labels Dies to create a window and a pop up area of the DSP. The pop up area in the center is the reverse side of the yellow piece of DSP, so this is a very easy and fast card! I just stamped the sentiment and the leaves and flower images from the stamp set. I then cut those out and added them to my card.
This card also uses the DSP, Dies, and Stamp Set. I again used my Stampin’ Blends to color the bird and branches. I love the blending of color on the bird image to coordinate with the DSP colors.
I stamped and colored the inside of the card too.
So, just a little sampling to give you a some inspiration while checking out the new catalog. Start making your list and if you want to order some things on that list, just click the catalog image in the right sidebar to place an order with me. Or if you would like to get your own catalog send me a message to let me know. Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Stampin’!
This is another one of my favorite retiring bundles, the Needle & Thread stamp set and Needlepoint Elements Framelits (#150626). I love all the stitching related images and the framelits have some beautiful stitched elements, also.
The Suite of products includes the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper (#148807), Old Olive Linen Thread (#148811), and Needlepoint Nook Mini Buttons (#148810) too! This card shows a couple of those items, as well.
This card was inspired by a lovely card by Jo Blackman (see her card by clicking on her name). I added a Night of Navy card base too. I love all the die cut images added with stampin’ dimensionals to give the card a bunch of texture. The x-stitches on the background are a great added touch too.
I duplicated this card from Chris Smith. I loved the color combination, the arrangement, but mostly the use of the scallop on the lower edge of the card front. LOVE THAT! That was cut with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits (#143751).
This card has a pretty stitched detail on the inside of the card. I used the framelits to create that stitched scalloped lower edge.
The Tufted Embossing Folder (#146335) is a great addition to this bundle, since it give a quilted look to the card.
This last card is a close copy of Darlene McCallum’s card on Splitcoaststampers. I did add some detail on the inside of the card using the stamps and framelits to up the “wow” factor!
Well, so many great options and ideas for this sweet Suite of Needlepoint Nook! It’s retiring at the end of this month, so if you don’t want to miss out just click on the catalog image in the right sidebar to order yours today! Have a great day and Happy Stampin’!
Today I am sharing a few cards that I have made using the Bike Ride stamp set and Build a Bike Framelits. These will be retiring at the end of this month, so time is running out for a little ride on this bike!
I love how you can build the bike and easily ink individual pieces in different colors, and since it is a photopolymer set it’s so easy to put everything together!
This card front is cut slightly smaller, and then I added the banner and bike so it extends over the end a bit. Just a fun idea and simple to accomplish with the coordinating framelits to cut out all the images from the stamp set. I added washi tape on the bottom of the card front AND inside too.
More washi tape on this card. It’s an easy way to add a fun background to a card. I love the basket image and all the little things you can put in it too (apples, flowers, books, a bouquet, and this cute little dog)!
This card has a Valentine theme, but could be a nice thank you card, as well. The bike is simply stamped in black ink, then I added the basket to the front using the framelits to cut it out, and finally the hearts were punched out using the old Owl Builder punch (retired).
Just a few ideas to give a little inspiration for this much loved stamp set with coordinating framelits. It would be a great addition to your stamping collection and there are so many combinations to create with ALL the images and framelits included in them. Only a few weeks left to get yours before they will be retired, so don’t delay!
Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Stampin’!

Well, here is my pile of stamp sets that will be retiring at the end of May! I can’t believe how many of my sets will be gone and no longer available for purchase. Many of them are some of my favorites….LOVELY AS A TREE, for example, and I will certainly miss them in my drawer of current sets. I am not one of those demonstrators that get rid of everything once it is retired, though. I will continue to use most of these to make cards for friends and family. I have a nice stash of stamp sets AND many other retired products in my craft room, so they will just move to another drawer and continue to be cherished.
I am planning to share some cards in the coming days of things that I have created with some of these retired stamp sets, so I hope you come back to see some of those. Time is running out for the retired items, just a few short weeks left until the new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up Catalog begins on June 4th, 2019. You may want to take a look and see what you may like to order from the current catalog. Just click the link of the catalog in the right sidebar to place an order, so you don’t miss out before they are gone. Happy Stampin’ and thanks for stopping by!
