Summer Silhouettes – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #607

Hey There,

This week I will be featuring card tutorials made with the Stampin’ Up! set Summer Silhouettes.    The Queen Anne’s Lace stamp really jumped out at me.  I love to see Queen Anne’s Lace growing at the side of a country road.  So to give that country feeling I teamed the stamp set up with some brand new Stampin’ Up! designer series paper (Gingham Garden item #129310) and Regals Candy Dots item #130932) which will be in the new annual catalog that starts on May 31st.  Check out my tutorial below.


I’ve added the featured card of the day to my sales page where you will also find some great deals on retired stamp sets and my brayer video.  CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT


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

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Summer Silhouettes (item #126447)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Primrose Petal, Blushing Bride and Gingham Garden item #129310

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Primrose Petal, Blushing Bride and Old Olive

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponge, Framelits – Oval Collection, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Brayer, White Gel Pen, Big Shot Machine, Regals Candy Dots and Word Windows Punch

Die cut the 3rd to the smallest Oval in the Framelits Oval Collection out of Whisper White card stock using the Big Shot Machine.

Brayered Blushing Bride ink at an angle on the oval.

Brayered Primrose Petal ink at an angle not covering the Blushing Bride ink entirely.

Stamped the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp using Old Olive ink twice.

Stamped the leaves stamp twice using Old Olive ink.

Stamped the flowers using Primrose Petal ink.

Sponged Old Olive ink at the edge of the card stock in the Leafy area.

Added White Gel Pen dots in the flowers and highlighted the leaves.

Cut a 5″ x 2.25″ piece of Gingham DSP and cut half of the oval out using the 5th to the smallest oval and the Big Shot Machine.

Cut a 2.5″ x 8.5″ piece of Primrose Petal card stock and cut 1/2 of the 4th to largest oval out using the Big Shot Machine.

Lined the DSP up on the Primerose Petal card stock and then cut the edges off of the card stock.


Punched two Word Window punches out of Primerose Petal card stock.  Attached the Word Window Punches, the card stock with the 1/2 ovals to a 4.25″ x 5.5″ Blushing Bride card base.

Added Primerose Petal Candy Dots and then popped the main image panel up using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Here is the finished card.

Urgent!   Only a few days left to pick up those Stampin’ Up! retiring stamps.
