If you’ve looked through the new Annual Catalog you may have noticed that the catalog no longer includes photo indexes of all the Designer Series Paper, Punches or Dies. I was disappointed when I realized these were not included this year, as I refer to them regularly. So, new this year I created indexes of Designer Series Paper, Punches and Dies. You can print and tuck them into your catalog!

Naturally Gilded Thank You Card

I created this pretty little note card with Stampin’ Up!’s Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes, which are great to have on hand when you need a quick card. They are available in Very Vanilla and Whisper White. Each pack has 20 card bases and envelopes which makes them a great value as well.

This thank you card was easy and quick to put together with some pretty paper and simple stamping. I love the Naturally Gilded Designer Series Paper paired with Melon Mambo cardstock. The Melon Mambo is just the right pop of bright pretty color this cards needs.

Try a New Color Combination

Color combinations are a great source for creative inspiration. Stampin’ Up! has an amazing rainbow of colors to create hundreds of color combinations. I have a few unique color combinations to share with you.

The first card I want to share with you today was inspired by this unique color combination.

Arranging the hexagons at an angle and varying the arrangement of sizes and colors gives this card a fun, funky feel.

The next card I have to share with you was inspired by these unique colors.

To make this card feel different, die cut some Old Olive and Petal Pink 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper to create the leaf and flower shapes. Then we added some Calypso Coral and Old Olive cardstock.

Looking for more color combination inspiration? You can download Stampin’ Up!’s Color Coach charts. Just click the images below to download them. Pick your favorite color combinations from a Color Coach, gather your supplies and start creating!

August Customer Thank you Cards

Welcome to our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop!

We are so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop for ideas and creative inspiration. Our blog hop focuses on the Thank You cards we are sending to our customers.

You may be starting here or have come from another blog – either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post today.

For this months Customer cards I decided to use the Splendid Day Designer Series Paper and the Beautiful Shapes Dies, to create a clean and simple card. I love how they turned out!

To create my card I cut card bases in both Soft Sea Foam and Fresh Freesia CardStock. Then I used the Beautiful Shapes Dies to die cut several hexagons from the Splendid Day Designer Series Paper. I adhered the 2 largest hexagons with multipurpose liquid glue, and the smallest hexagon with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on Basic White cardstock. I stamped several images from the Hello Beautiful Stamp set to add a bit of texture to the card, then attached the Basic White layer to the card base.

The sentiment is from the Pansy Patch stamp set, stamped in Tuxedo Black Ink, on a strip of Basic White cardstock. Then punched each side with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch and added it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the 2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds because I just couldn’t resist adding a little more sparkle to the cards.

For the inside of my card I stamped the Bee and foliage images from the Splendid Thoughts Stamp set on Basic White cardstock, then adhered it to the inside of the card.

Hello From Me to You Card Measurements:

  • Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score at 4-1/4″
  • Basic White Layer: 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Basic White Inside: 4′ x 5-1/4″
  • Basic White Strip for Sentiment: 1/2″ x 4″

Rainbow of Happiness – Inspirations In Ink Blog Hop

Welcome to the monthly Inspirations In Ink Blog Hop! This month’s theme is all about In Colors. You may be starting here or have come from another blog – either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today. I hope you enjoy all our In Color Blog Hop Projects!

Sweet Sorbet and Starry Sky are one of my favorite In Color combinations and are featured in my project. Rainbow of Happiness is one of the Bundles in the Jan-June Mini Catalog that I will miss so I wanted to use it in my project before it retires on June 30th.

To create my card I started with the Sweet Sorbet cardbase from the Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes. I die cut several of the rainbow stripes in Sweet Sorbet and Starry Sky 6″x 6″ DSP Assortment. Then, I adhered them to a piece of Basic White cardstock and die cut the cardstock with the 2nd largest rectangle in the Deckled Rectangles Dies.

I used the Cloud Punch to punch out a Basic White Cloud and a Vellum Cloud. Then snipped the Vellum Cloud in half and adhered it to the back of the Basic White Cloud with Mini Glue Dots. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach it to the rainbow.

The label is die cut with the Tailor Made Tags dies. I used Masking Paper to cover up “World” and stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sorbet. Then masking the stamp again stamped “World” in Starry Sky.

I tied a piece of Starry Sky Metallic Woven Ribbon to the top of the tag and then attached it to the Basic White layer with Mini Glue Dots.

To put all the layers together, I adhered a piece of the Lovely Layers Vellum with Multipurpose glue to the cardbase. Then added the Basic White layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the Iridescent Jewels to the front of the card and stamped some hearts to the inside of the card.

As mentioned at the top, this is a blog hop so make sure you ‘hop’ around to all the amazing projects on this hop! Click on the links below to visit them.

Rainbow of Happiness In Color Card Measurements:

  • Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes Cardbase 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ score in half at 4-1/4″
  • Lovely Layers Vellum 3-3/4″ x 5″
