Fly Away – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #598

Hey There,

How about a little floral card today?   I combined the Stampin’ Up! stamp sets Papillion Potpourri and Everything Eleanor to bring you this Spring Card Tutorial.  Check it out below.


I’ve added this card to my sales page where you will also find some great deals on retired stamp sets.  CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT********************************************

Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Papillion Potpourri (item #123759) and Everything Eleanor (item #124164)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Marina Mist and Basic Black

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Stazon Jet Black

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Ovals Collection Framelits (item #129381), Bird punch, Flower Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Brads, Brayer, White Gel pen, 3/4″ circle punch, Markers (Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie), Big Shot Machine

Using the Big Shot Machine and the Oval Collection Framelits, cut 3rd to the largest and 2nd to the largest Ovals out of Whisper White and Basic Black card stock.

Punched a 3/4″ circle punch from the sticky part of a post it note and used it as a mask for the sun.

Brayered Daffodil Delight ink and then Pumpkin Pie ink at an angle.

Removed the sun mask and sponged in Daffodil Delight ink in the sun.

Stamped the flourish from the Everything Eleanor set using Stazon Jet Black ink.

Stamped the Butterflies on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock using Stazon Jet Black ink.

Colored the butterflies in with a Baja Breeze marker.  Added Marina Mist marker on the inside of the wings and then colored the body in using a Basic Black marker.

Stamped the flower from the Everything Eleanor set on Whisper White card stock using Stazon Jet Black ink.

Colored the flower in using a Daffodil Delight marker.

Added Pumpkin Pie marker.

Added Cajun Craze marker on the inside of the flower.

Cut out the butterflies and large flower.

Punched a small flower out of Cajun Craze card stock and sniped in between the petals of the flower using paper snips.  Added a brad to the center and then added it to the center of the larger flower.  (note:  I did this as an after thought, but it would be easier to do this at this point.


Added White Gel pen to the florish, flower and Butterflies.

Cut a 3.75″ x 5″ piece of Marina Mist card stock.   Inked up one side of the Argyle Embossing Folder with Marina Mist ink and then ran the card stock through the Big Shot Machine using the Emboss Folder.  This really makes the embossing stand out.  (note:  you want to ink up the side of the embossing folder that the design is indented).


Added 2 Basic Black Panels and a Marina Mist panel.  Very Vanilla Seam Binding and then pop up the oval Basic Black panel with Stampin Dimensionals.  Also popped up the  butterflies and flower.

Cut 2 pieces of Very Vanilla Ribbon and slide them under the adhered ribbon.  Tied them in a bow and then separted the loops so the bow is fuller.


Punched 2 of the leaves from the bird punch out of Basic Black card stock.  Cut some of the stem off of them and added them under the flower.

Here is the finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.

May your day be delightful!

Until my next post. . . . . .

New Wood-Mount Cases

Introducing our new wood-mount stamp set packaging! These new cases are similar to our clear-mount boxes and fit perfectly on the shelf right next to them. They also have the images and stamp set name on the spine to make your search for the right set even easier.

Starting May 31 all wood-mount sets will come in this new packaging (sneak peek sets will also be in the new boxes during the preorder). And empty cases will be available with the launch of the new catalog. That means you can transfer all your old sets to these new boxes! There will even be a template for you to create your own label for your old stamp sets (available May 31). A pack of four half-size cases (3-3/4″ x 5-1/2″) will sell for $4.95 and a pack of four full-size cases (7-1/2″ x 5-1/2″) will be $6.95.

Get ready for all the exciting new products in the catalog–especially the new wood-mount boxes!


Stampin’ Up’s Color Refresh! I love color and I know that you do too. Color is fundamental to who Stampin’ Up! is and what they offer. It’s important for us to stay up-to-date with color trends so I am thrilled to share Stampin’ Up’s updated line of colors, and hope you will be as excited as I am by the new possibilities!

Why now? In 2010 Stampin’ Up! did a big color renovation and shared their plans for smaller color refreshes every three to five years to keep their colors on trend. Well it has been three years and I am excited to announce that the upcoming 2013-2014 annual catalog will include 10 new colors (most of which are returning In Colors from previous years)! Stampin’ Up! is welcoming back some of your favorites, moving some colors around, and introducing one brand-new color, so take a look!

Beginning on April 4, 2013, all retiring/discontinued color products (i.e. ink, paper, ribbon, accessories, etc.) will be available only while supplies last. This means that some products will not be available through the retired list period. Stampin’ Up! did anticipate increased demand and based their forecasts for these retiring colors on historical sales information from previous color transitions. However, even with the most careful planning, the response to a transition of this nature can surprise everyone–including your own personal purchases. We encourage you to get your favorites and look forward to the exciting colors coming in the 2013-2014 annual catalog.
