Very Versailles

One thing I am not surprised at about this new world of social distancing is that people seem to be kinder and more thoughtful.  I know at first it was “everyone for themself” but now people have woken up to the fact that working together is better.  I have seen a lot of kindness, tolerance and courtesy now.  I love that.

“Thank you for your kindness” is a perfect sentiment for the times.  It is part of the stamp set called Layered With Kindness and is in the Spring Mini Catalog.  There are two punches that go with it.  One is called Label Me Lovely and the other is Label Me Fancy.  Both can be used with the stamp set.

In this case I didn’t use either but instead chose the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I love how these dies can nest within each other.  I first stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock and cut it out.  Then I took a piece of Basic Gray cardstock and cut out the larger piece using the same die set.  I stamped the branches in Pretty Peacock ink on top of a piece of 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper in Smoky Slate and layered everything on top of a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock.

Layered With Kindness

 

Layered With Kindness is a stamp set that is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2020 January – June Mini Catalog.  It is one of those sets that I normally would overlook but I started to see cards made with it online so it caught my eye.  It is a DisINKive stamp set which is a patent pending stamp that makes a image that has dimension to it.  The sentiments in this stamp set go with two new punches that Stampin’ Up!® offers.  One is called Label Me Lovely and the other is Label Me Fancy.  By the way, if you are looking at the catalog at these punches, the descriptions got mixed up.  The names are correct though.

To make this card, I first randomly stamped the larger flowers in Lovely Lipstick ink.  Then I added the leaves and stems using Old Olive ink and then filled in the spaces with the little flowers also in Lovely Lipstick ink.  I stamped the sentiment with Memento Black ink onto a piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock and punched it out using the Label Me Lovely Punch.  Then I stamped it again onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and punched it out using the Label Me Fancy Punch.  I layered this on top using Dimensionals.

The ribbon is from the Botanical Prints Product Medley kit which is also in the Mini Catalog.

Timeless Tropical

Hello everyone.  It is time for another Stamp Off Challenge with Buffy, Jackie and me!  This time our challenge was to use our favorite stamp set from the 2020 January – June Mini Catalog.  This was really hard to me because I have so many favorites from this catalog so I had a hard time choosing.  I decided on using the Tropical Oasis Suite but only because I haven’t used it that much.

The Tropical Oasis Suite includes the stamp set called Timeless Tropical, the matching dies called In The Tropics, Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper, a gorgeous embossing folder called Coastal Weave, ink, ribbon, embellishments and even a Memories Or More Card Pack!  It is an amazing Suite and the colors are gorgeous.  This is one of the Suites that Stampin’ Up!® made it possible to order everything in it with just one item number (#153941).  If you buy the entire Suite you would be eligible to get FREE two $50 Sale-a-bration items or one $100!  Free is always great!

The colors I used for my card are Terracotta Tile and Granny Apple Green.  Terracotta Tile is one of the new InColors.  It is a beautiful coral/orange-like color and is much softer looking in person than in my photograph or the catalog.

To make this card, I first stamped two sets of the Palm Trees in Granny Apple Green and cut them out using the matching dies from In The Tropics.  The rest was easy!  I used the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper for the top half of the card and just layered a piece of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave ribbon around it before adhering it to the Terracotta Tile card base.

The sentiment is from a new stamp set in the Mini Catalog called Layered With Kindness.  I punched it out using a new punch called Label Me Fancy.

Now let’s go see what Buffy’s and Jackie’s favorite stamp sets are in the 2020 Mini Catalog.  I am sure they had a hard time choosing too
