Stampin' Up! Pressed Petals Stitched All Around!

Hey there! Only two days left before the Retiring List expires and the New Annual Catalog begins! Today I have another birthday card I created with the retiring Stitched All Around stamp set, Stitched Shapes dies, and Pressed Petals Specialty Designer paper.

I added a bit of 5/16" Braided Burlap Trim behind the sentiment layers to add some texture. I frayed the ends of the trim before adhering with a thin line of liquid glue.

I really like this sentiment from Stitched All Around. I'm sorry to see it and the Stitched Labels Dies, one of which I used to cut the Merry Merlot mat behind the sentiment, retire tomorrow. I used a Stitched Shapes Die to cut out the sentiment oval after heat embossing the sentiment with white powder. (Stitched Shapes Dies are on the retiring list, but they are not really retiring, just being re-configured for the new catalog launch)

The inside sentiment is also from Stitched All Around. I really like the look of white heat-embossing on Crumb Cake; it really pops! I added a 1/2" strip of the Pressed Petals Specialty to the lower front of the envelope as well as the envelope flap. Using the same designer paper on the envelope really gives that "custom-made" look!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Clubhouse!

Hey there and happy Sunday to you! Is your church starting back to in-person services yet? Mine starts next Sunday! yay!

With the New Annual Catalog starting on Wednesday, June 3rd at 1 p.m MT, there's not much time left to order from the Retiring List. The swap cards I'm sharing with you today are all from the Clubhouse Bundle. It WON'T be carrying over, so if you fall in love with it today you'd better order it today!

There are two advantages to ordering the bundle vs separately ordering the stamps & dies:

You save 10% when you order a bundle.

You are assured the dies will cut out the images perfectly! Stampin_up_Clubhouse_Bundle_carolpaynestamps
I will list the supplies used for all of these cards at the bottom of my post!

First, a fun golf ball birthday card by Julie Beltramo:

  2. This inside sentiment is perfect!

    Ellen Barner combined the carrying-over Mountain Air bundle with the Clubhouse bundle. She colored the golfer and the golf ball with Real Red, Shaded Spruce, Crumb Cake, Pineapple Punch, and  Ivory Stampin' Blends
  4. Stampin_up_clubhouse_carolpaynestamps4
  5. She added Clear Wink of Stella to the stamped and cut-out golf-ball for some shine:

Stampin' Up! Stitched All Around!

Hey there! Just a few more days left until the Retiring List expires and the New Annual Catalog goes live, so I have a few more cards left to share with you created with retiring items.

My card today is created with the retiring stamp set, Stitched All Around, as well as Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_pressed_petals_carolpaynestamps2

My color combo of Rococo Rose and Merry Merlot is so elegant and vintage!  I punched a 1/2" circle of Merry Merlot, then embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder to finish the center of the bloom I created with the Daisy Punch and Medium Daisy punch.

Stampin_up_pressed_petals_carolpaynestamps3

After heat embossing the greeting with white powder, I cut it out with an Ornate Frames die. I'm so glad those dies are carrying over to the new catalog!

Stampin_up_pressed_petals_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I heat embossed another Stitched All Around sentiment on Merry Merlot, then cut with a Stitched Rectangle Die so more of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Paper would show.

Stitched All Around and the Pressed Petals Specialty Paper are on the Retiring List! Go grab them from my online store before they are gone forever on June 2nd!

Stampin' Up! Flourishing Anniversary!

Hey there! My card for today is an anniversary card for a special couple I know. I won't mention their names because I don't want them to know it's for them until they receive it in the mail, so shhhhh!

I used the retiring Flourishing Phrases again with Pretty Peacock card stock and ink to create this elegant anniversary card. I stamped the large flourish on both the center and edges of the Shimmery White card stock, as well as the envelope front and flap.

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps1

I cut the greeting with an Ornate Frames die, then traced the outside of the die on Pretty Peacock card stock. I cut with Paper Snips along the inside edge of the drawn line to create the Pretty Peacock mat. I added three Noble Peacock Rhinestones, which are also retiring, for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps3

I love these two sentiments together! Even though there isn't an anniversary greeting in Flourishing Phrases, I will write it in before I mail it!

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps4

I solved the problem of stamping the two separate sentiments evenly by stamping the lower one at a whimsical angle. You can never go wrong with part of the sentiment at an angle to keep from having to make them stamp evenly.
