Goodbye to Garden in Bloom

Today I am sharing another stamp set that I really like that is retiring the Garden in Bloom Stamp set.

But the good news is – this card is made with the Stampin’ Up! color Flirty Flamingo which is staying!

So I have found a few scraps of the Fruit Stand Designer paper left from the 2016 catalog.  So am going to make a few of these cards with a group of ladies that I am stamping with today.

I cut the DSP on a diagonal and used the other side of the DSP inside the card.  Here is the inside.  I love the colors and fun spring feel of this card!














It is hard to see, but I used the Wink of Stella on the flower petals to give them that extra little zing.  Everything needs a little bling!

Both cards have a card base of Flirty Flamingo cardstock. 

The card on the left is randomly stamped with the flowers from the Garden in Bloom stamp set.  This is a great way to make your own Designer paper.   For this card I used Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach inks to stamp the flowers.  The outline of the flower is stamped with the primary color and the inside of the flower is stamped with the same color and then stamped a second time on a second flower to get the lighter shade.  The leaves are stamped with Wild Wasabi.  Just a side note that Peekaboo Peach and Wild Wasabi inks are also retiring.

For the card on the right, I used a Black Archival ink pad to stamp the outline of the flowers and then filled them in with the Flirty Flamingo ink.  The flowers were cut out and applied to the card with dimensionals.  The butterfly is colored with Daffodil Delight in the center.  The edge of the Butterfly wings is a brush stroke of the Peekaboo Peach ink.

I will miss this beautiful Cheery stamp set!

Don’t miss out!

How to CASE a Card

I am going to show you how to case a card today.  Have you ever seen a card that you like and wonder how to make it?  CASE is the crafting word for Copy and Share Everything.  The most important point is to give credit to the person that designed the card originally!

This week I have been playing around with the Share What you Love Bundle of products since those are featured this month.  I like the card that is in one of the examples that Stampin’ Up! published to the Demonstrators.  So I am going to show you how I CASEd the card and then made a version that is just a little stepped up (more bling added).

The Card on the left is the card that Stampin’ Up! published on the demonstrator site.

This card has a Rich Razzleberry Card base that has been cut to 4 1/4″ x 11 and scored at 5 1/2″ to stand the long way.  A piece of Whisper white cardstock has been cut to 3 3/4″ x 5″.  I can tell the dimension by the wider layer that is on this card.  Most card layers are 1/4″ smaller – this has a wider layer (more of the background card is showing) so the layer is 1/2″ smaller than the card base.

To make the banner end on this layer, I made a little mark on the bottom of the layer in the center.  Then went up 3/4″ and made another mark.  I used my Paper snips to cut on the diagonal from each edge to the dot int the center.

The Center of the card is stamped with the Love What you Do Stamp set.  The background and small flowers on the top are stamped with the new In-color Grapefruit Grove.  I have to say this is favorite new In-Color for this year.  The leaves on the side are stamped with Old Olive ink.  The rose is stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink.  The cute detailed tag comes from the Share What you Love Embellishment Kit.  “Thank you” is stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink.
Here are the items from the Stampin’ Up! Bundle.  Interested in getting a head start with this new Suite of Products?  Check out the bundles HERE.  As you can see to the left, the bundle includes the Grapefruit Grove Ink pad!!

The card on the right is a stepped up card with an additional layer and a little more bling.

The Card Base is the new Grapefruit Grove Cardstock.  The whisper white layer is the same size (3 3/4″ x 5″) with a layer of old olive underneath.  The old Olive is cut to 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ to make a very narrow layer.

The background is stamped with the Grapefruit Grove ink.  Leaves are stamped with Old Olive Ink and the roses are stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink.  I added the tag from the Share What you Love Embellishment Kit and tied a piece of the white twine in the kit thru the side of the tag.  I then added two small piece of the Rich Razzleberry Velvet ribbon as a tail coming off the side of the tag.

That’s it! That is how to CASE a Card.  You make the card as shown or you can modify the card and add your own touches and embellishments to it.  As we all know, the embellishments are the fun part!

Review of You Move Me Stamp set

Today I am sharing a card that I received last fall for my Birthday from one of my great Stampin’ Friends, Kathie Durgan on the You move me butterflywest coast.  I would like to share some of my favorites from sets that are retiring over the next couple of weeks. 

This post is a couple of samples made with the You Move Me Stamp set.

Here are the details for this Beautiful Birthday card:

the Card base is Basic Black cardstock cut to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.  The second layer is a piece of Gold Foil cut to 5 1/4″ x 4″.  The third layer is a piece of Whisper white cardstock cut to 3 3/4″ x 5″.   The pattern on the bottom of the white cardstock is made using the Black Washi Tape.  I love the way you can use a little tape to look like Designer paper!

The butterfly is cut from a piece of Gold Foil with an overlay cut from Basic Black cardstock.


I love the images in the You Move Me stamp set.  The bird, butterfly and flower are 3 part stamps that allow you stamp a detailed and colorful image using multiple colors of ink for the image.   The corresponding dies allow you to create an interactive image that appears to flutter using the “grill” piece on the front of a card.  A great card that moves.

Here is an example of the You Move Me stamp set and dies used to create an interactive c
ard.  This card was designed by one of my downlines, Debby Donovan for a class that she was teaching at one of our Creative Crafters’ Escape Stamping Retreats.


Like these ideas?  Don’t miss out!   This set is retiring and will be gone after May 31st!

Ready to place an order?  If you are in the United States and don’t have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would love to be your demonstrator.  If your order is under $150 use the Host Code  RY33UA2V and I will share a sampler of the new upcoming Share What you Love DSP with you.  Of course if your order is over $150, then claim the Host benefits for yourself!  I love to share Host benefits with my customers!

Happy Stamping!
