Garden Impressions One Sheet Wonder Cards

Garden Impressions One Sheet Wonder Cards

What a wonderful summer it’s been for the Stewart house!  Lots of times with grands and kids equals pure bliss!  One of the things I love about spring and summer (and even fall) is all the flowers that are blooming.  The Abstract Impressions Suite has coordinating floral stamps and floral dies, and the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper coordinated beautifully to help create some beautiful projects.

Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper

I decided I wanted to do a One Sheet Wonder Class using the 6 X 6 Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper.  I was inspired by the template and card designs of Rebecca Urban, another talented Stampin’ Up Demonstrator.  Here are the cards we made in this fun class.

one sheet wonder Garden Impressions

This paper was just perfect for this Class to show how you can stretch our Stampin’ Up Designer Series Papers and get more bang for your buck!  I used Soft Sea Foam and Calypso Coral Cardstock and Stampin’ Inks.  The sentiments are from the Ribbon of Courage and the Beautiful Day Stamp Sets.  So quick and easy!!  Next I want to try a 12 X 12 One Sheet Wonder Class, and I’m sure the new Christmas Designer Series Papers will inspire me.

The Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper is just one the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE Select Designer Series Paper Sale.  This sale ENDS July 31st, so now’s the time to place your order!  Go to my online store at http://www.craftingonthehill.stampinup.net to see all the “pretty papers” that are on sale, or see my July 3rd post for pictures of them.  Either way, NOW is the time to shop!

“You Can Make It” Beautiful Day Bundle

One of the fantastic new things added in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog is the “You Can Make It” Project Ideas that you can purchase a Bundle.  What a fabulous idea!  One Item number to purchase everything you need to make the project.  I decided I really wanted to play with the Beautiful Day Stamps Set and make a set of the cards.

Beautiful Day Craft Project

I stamped the images with the Memento Ink Pad, then colored them with Stampin’ Blends.  I didn’t want to stop!

I started with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Combo, then decided to also use the Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combos, also. Bright and colorful and a very quick project.

beautiful day butterflies

The flower stamped called out to me, too, so I colored those in Calypso Coral and Lovely Lipstick.   I used Old Olive for the leaves and Daffodil Delight Dark for the flower centers.  Aren’t they just lovely?  And remarkably quick to create such beautiful projects!

beautiful day flowers

Here’s what’s included in the Beautiful Day Cards Supplies Set, Item 149042.  Note cards and envelopes, Beautiful Day Stamp Set, Stampin’ Block, Ink, Stampin’ Blends and twine.  Fun!

Fun with the Petal Passion Suite

Fun with the Petal Passion Suite

At the February Quick and Easy Cards Class, we used the Petal Passion Suite to create 6 beautiful cards.

Petal Passion Suite Designer Series Paper

 

The Petal Passion Designer Series Paper is gorgeous, but it becomes even more versatile when you color it!

petal palette DSP coloring w logo

At the Cards Class, we used the technique on the left, a Sponge Brayer and Stampin’ Ink.  This piece of the Petal Passion Paper was inked with the Pool Party Stampin’ Ink Pad.  The Sponge Brayer makes so easy!  I put alcohol and a Stampin’ Up Ink Refill in the Stampin’ Up Stampin’ Spritzer, then sprayed the middle piece.  On the third piece, I used the Stampin’ Up Sponge Dauber and picked up the color from the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Up Ink Pad to daub it on the Petal Passion paper.  Amazingly simple to create so many different looks!

Petal palette blends w logo

Look at the stellar results from using the Stampin’ Blends to color it!  I truly love this Petal Passion Designer Series Paper.  And the Blends make even me look like an artist!

Here is a list of the Stampin’ Up Products used in these projects:

Sponge Brayer    Item 141714    $8

Sponge Dauber   Item 133773   $5

Stampin’ Spritzer  Item 126185  $3

Stampin’ Blends  $4.50 each or $9 Combo Pack

Stampin’ Ink Pads  $6.50 each

We made 3 cards in Class using the Petal Passion Suite.

On this one we used the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Love the Powder Pink and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock paired with the Sweet Sugarplum Stampin’ Ink.  The Petals & More Thinlits Dies were used to cut out the “flyaway” leaves and the sentiment from the Petal Palette Stamp Set.

petal palette pink card w logo

We also made 2 other cards using this fabulous Suite.

petal palette class cards

I just love, love this little bird, which is stamped here in Marina Mist, but it’s also adorable stamped in pink or yellow or black, and can easily be colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  The flowers are from the Petal Palette Stamps, stamped in Berry Burst.  So versatile!!
