Here is a whimsical gated folded card for you to try out. The palette uses one of my all time favorite colors – Bermuda Bay combined with the more delicate Wisteria Wonder. The Grateful Bunch stamp set includes the lovely lace image that serves as a backdrop for the flowers popping up on the card front. The lace was stamped in Bermuda Bay ink. The center of the lace was made of the glitter washi tape from Sale-a-bration, but if you missed your opportunity to get that product, you could substitute a bit of glimmer paper.
Just a note about this stamp set: The triple flower image is perfectly joined together to match the punch exactly. It saves a lot of time when you are punching a lot of flowers. So smart!
This soft color palette was perfect for this square notecard. The dimensions are 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″. It was made using the sentiments from the Grateful Bunch stamp set and the images form the Awesomely Artistic stamp set. The laurel images were stamped off before applying the ink to the card stock. The card is set on a background of papers from the Birthday Bouquet DSP pack. The dragonfly was stamped in mossy meadow ink and fussy cut with paper snips. The dragonfly lights up with a hint of the clear wink of stella on a small medallion made from the Grateful Bunch punch.

The background on this card was made by stamping directly on Stampin’ UP’s Birthday Bouquet DSP using the flourish image from the First Sight Stamp set in mint macaron ink. It is a great way to add dimension to a card. The small doily highlights the Forever Friends sentiment that sits on the embossed dots created with the Softly Falling embossing folder. The flower was fussy cut from a sheet from the same DSP pack and highlighted with a bit of wink of stella.

If you have never worked with washi tape, you should definitely give it a try. Washi tape is easy to peel and reposition without ruining your card stock. With this design, that ability makes it easy to get those perfect graphic lines seen on this card. I used the In Color Washi tape from 2015-2017. It comes in so many fun designs too! Paired with the Suite Sayings stamp set, it takes on a playful tone.
This simple card was made with absolutely no stamping. The star of the show is the beautiful Butterfly Thinlet die and the Expressions Thinlet die. Both were cut out on the Big Shot using the magnetic plate and precision base plate which makes these decorations effortlessly. Clean out all the small paper pieces by running the Big Shot die brush over the butterfly.
The card base is Mint Macaron highlighted with a 2 inch piece of Blushing Bride card stock that was run through the Big Shot with the brick embossing folder. A 1 inch piece of the Birthday Bouquet DSP was applied to the left edge of the card. The butterfly is cut from the same DSP pack of paper. The butterfly is popped up off the card using dimensionals.

Fab Friday #86 offered up a color challenge last week. Here is the card that I made using the above colors and the Love You Sew stamp set. The sentiment was stamped using Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder using the heat tool. After punching it out with the Circle punch, starting with the lightest color of Soft Sky, it was sponged over the embossed sentiment with ink. Enjoy!

Global Designs Project 34 and the beautiful simple collage cards on Pinterest, inspired an artistic collage style card made with no layers, just various Stampin’ UP inks. Get inspired to try your own version of this. I used the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set for the collage of images blending the various shades of brown and then highlighting with a white Stampin’ Chalk marker.
The Dream Big sentiment is from the Enjoy The Little Things Stamp Set. It was stamped in versa mark ink and then embossed using the heat tool with white emboss powder. The small circle image was stamped in craft ink and then highlighted with clear wink of Stella glitter.
