Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Positive Thoughts Sympathy

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!  Hope your week is going well.  All is good here – we’re soggy but…it’s okay.  It’s warm for a minute, so…there’s that! 🙂

I have a card today that is going to end up being sent as a sympathy card, I believe.  It doesn’t overtly refer to “sympathy” but… I think it’s actually appropriate.  It uses one of my favorite sets in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog – the Positive Thoughts stamp set.  I took advantage of the new Nature’s Thoughts Dies, too, that cut all those wonderful shapes out for me using my die cutting machine!  You’ll also see some of the new So Very Vellum Specialty DSP (a new freebie in the Sale-A-Bration Second Release flyer).  Take a look-see:

I started this one with a card-front size piece of Whisper White and an identically sized piece of Soft Sea Foam vellum from the new So Very Vellum Speicalty DSP (coming to you on 3 Mar in the SAB second release).  I used Glue Dots to adhere the vellum to the card stock – placing them where I knew they’d be hidden by decorations on the card front.  Then I matted the whole thing on So Saffron to make the card front.

I used the large stitched-edge rectangle die in the Nature’s Thoughts Die Set to cut a Whisper White panel, which I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped two Positive Thoughts leaves images – one in So Saffron and the second in Soft Sea Foam.  I also stamped a flower in Petal Pink.  All three are cut with their matching dies in Nature’s Thoughts.

I adhered the leaves and flower to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next up, I cut some little leaves (also in the Nature’s Thoughts die set) from the same Soft Sea Foam So Very Vellum paper, and adhered them as well.

The sentiment, from Positive Thoughts, is stamped in Soft Suede on a strip of Soft Sea Foam card stock that I bannerized with my Paper Snips.  Then I adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut three little Nature’s Thoughts butterflies from So Saffron and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Just Us Girls Guest Designer Peaceful Nature’s Positive Thoughts

Good morning, peeps!  Well – today is the last week in my  “term” as a Guest Designer at the Just Us Girls Challenge! Which is why I’m in your Inbox so early!  Next Saturday we’ll be back on our normal posting schedule.  I’ve really enjoyed working with the fun folks at Just Us Girls – and am really honored that they asked me!

This week is a theme challenge – with butterflies taking a front-row-seat.  So – I pulled out the Positive Thoughts stamp set with the matching Nature’s Thoughts Dies (which YOU’LL be able to get on 4 Feb!).  I used a couple of sentiments from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, too.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Positive Thoughts

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you’re headed into a good and relatively stress-free week!!

Before we get going – I’ve got THREE extra Single Paper Shares ready to go if anyone wants them.  $15 +$5 for first class shipping gets you 48 – 6″ x 6″ sheets of beautiful new Designer Series Papers – and 6 Best Dressed 3″ x 3″ Note Cards and Envelopes.  Let me know ASAP if you want one or more of these packs of gorgeous paper! 🙂

I’ve got a very feminine card for you today – using the new Positive Thoughts stamp set. It also uses two wonderful Coordination Products that will be available to you on 4 Feb – the Nature’s Thoughts dies and the Pleased As Punch DSP.  Take a look-see!

The soft color palette is from this week’s CAS Colors & Sketches challenge.

And I think it’s pretty feminine so… I’ll enter it in the Water Cooler Wednesday challenge!

I started with a piece of Petal Pink gingham paper from the new Pleased As Punch DSP and matted it on So Saffron for the card front.

Next, using the large rectangle die in the Nature’s Thoughts Dies, I cut out a piece of Whisper White.

On that panel, I stamped the large leaf image from Positive Thoughts several times without re-inking in Bermuda Bay.  Then I added the fluer-d-doo image in So Saffron – again stamping several times without re-inking.

Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next up was to stamp and cut all the elements for the collage.  I stamped the big leaf image in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White and cut it with the die in Nature’s Thoughts.  I stamped two Petal Pink flowers and three Daffodil Delight butterflies and cut them out as well.  Then I cut two feathers – one in Whisper White and one in Petal Pink Perennial Essence Vellum Card Stock.  Finally, a few Bermuda Bay leaf die cuts joined the pile!

The sentiment – from Positive Thoughts – is stamped in Bermuda Bay on the Perennial Essence Vellum and cut with an Ornate Frames Die (carried over from the Holiday Catalog).

With everything cut and ready, I built the collage – adding and moving pieces around until it looked right.

Then I took it’s picture!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere all the pieces – starting with the large Bermuda Bay leaf and building the layers.  When I got to the sentiment – I used Glue Dots (they’re pretty easy to “hide” when using Vellum!).  Finally – the last flower is popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to tuck the Bermuda Bay die cut leaves in here and there into the collage and then added a bow tied with Petal Pink 5/8″ Striped Organdy Ribbon with a Glue Dot.

A few Champagne Rhinestone Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added the large Positive Thoughts leaf in Bermuda Bay on a Whisper White panel, stamping it a few times without re-inking.  I also added a second sentiment in Bermuda Bay.  Over the sentiment, in stamped-off-once Petal Pink, I stamped the feather image from the stamp set.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and into my Bermuda Bay card base, added the card front with Liquid Glue and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Bermuda Bay leaves on the front…
