STAMPIN' UP! HAND-PENNED PETALS GET WELL CARD

Fresh Freesia is one of my favourite In Colors.  It's a soft, pinky-purple, and there are lots of papers and accessories to show it off nicely!

I've used a few different sheets of Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper on today's card.  The gingham papers are a stand-out favourite.


This sweet stitched scalloped border die was one of the reasons I bought the Hand-Penned Petals bundle (as the Stitched Be Mine Dies, that I used ALL the time, recently retired).  Now that I have the bundle, though, I am loving the stamped images and sentiments, too.


The curved edge on the floral paper was cut with the new Basic Borders Dies.  I am loving the addition of these to our range - they're something I have wanted for a long time.  The tiny Loose Flower Flourishes are just adorable - lightweight, and easy to attach to a card with a dot of Liquid Glue (or glue dots, for the larger flowers).

STAMPIN' UP! FLOWERS OF FRIENDSHIP CARD IN POLISHED PINK

Polished Pink is a new In Color, that will be in Stampin' Up!'s range for two years.  It is very bold!

Here's how it fits in with our other pink offerings:




I have paired it with Basic White, and a bit of black, to make a friendship card using the Flowers of Friendship bundle.



I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Basic White card, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and cut it out using a Stitched So Sweetly Die.  I tucked it into the corner of a larger Basic White panel, on which I'd created a frame with the Stitched With Whimsy Dies.  I had stamped the main floral image on the larger Basic White panel, before adhering the sentiment.


This close-up shows the Polished Pink background, on which I repeatedly stamped small flowers in Polished Pink ink, before sponging the edges of the card.  I added a tab made from Polished Pink Designer Series Paper, using the Lovely Labels punch (snipped at one end).  Isn't the Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon beautiful?

STAMPIN' UP! FLOWERS OF FRIENDSHIP THANK YOU CARD

One of the lovely new product bundles, in the 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, is the Flowers of Friendship bundle - a stamp set and versatile matching punch.

I've had a play with it, and four of the five new In Colors.  I'm very happy with my first creation!



The Basic White panel in the background is embossed with a Meadow Moments embossing folder.  It's only narrow, so I had to put it through my Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine twice, to cover the whole piece.

The flowers on the stems, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, were coloured with my new Fresh Freesia Stampin' Blends markers.  The scalloped rectangle piece was cut with the fab new Scalloped Contours Dies.  Check out the sweet In Color Jewels.  I am in LOVE with these pretties.  Behind the focal panel are four thin strips of In Color Designer Series Paper (this checked pattern is my favourite).



We also have beautiful ribbons in the five new In Colors.  I've used Soft Succulent ribbon on my card, to complement the leaves coloured with Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends.  The two four-petal flowers are coloured with Polished Pink and Pale Papaya Stampin' Blends markers, and are adorned with matching In Color Jewels.
