Beautiful Friendship Stamps for the Joy of Stamping

Beautiful Friendship Stampin' Up!

Hello  Friends,

I honestly don't know if it is possible to make a "bad card" with the Beautiful Friendship stamp set.  This is a stamp set that you buy simply for the joy of stamping because you cannot possibly go wrong.  For today's card, I started with a blank canvas of Whisper White Card Stock.

Beautiful Friendship Stampin' Up!

For even more stamping fun I increased the size of my card to 5-1/2" x 12".  I scored at 4" and 8", then I sliced a triangle from the front two panels for a layered Z-Fold look.


Fancy Fold Card

My biggest tip when stamping randomly with lots of stamps is to work from the biggest stamps to the smallest stamps until you are happy with the results.  Today's ink colors are Flirty Flamingo, Soft Seafoam, Poppy Parade, Highland Heather, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzaz, and Garden Green.  The Garden Green was a marker to color the stems.

The good news is that the Beautiful Friendship stamp set #149252 will carry over into the new 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog!  The Beautiful Friendship stamp set works well for the beginner stamper, the seasoned stamper and everyone in-between.

Card Making Masking Technique

Hello Friends,

Today's card is a back to basics kind of card.  You could probably make this card in about five minutes and yet it is so, so beautiful.  Did I mention that there is stamping whatsoever on this card?  Watch the video below for instructions on making this simple card.

 


No Stamping Card Making

I didn't use any stamps to make today's card, but I did use 3 die sets.  The first is a die set that should be in every craft room.  It's called the Layering Ovals dies #141706.  You will find yourself reaching for this versatile set over and over again.  The Thank You die #146832 is retiring as of June 2, 2020, and is available While Supplies Last.    The third die set is called Beautiful Butterflies #148536.  I chose 3 tiny little butterfly dies to use as accents on my card but the Beautiful Butterflies die set is jam-packed with all sorts of butterfly dies.

Minutes to Done Card Idea

Fable Friends Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Are you looking for Minutes to Done Card Ideas?  Here is an idea, use Whisper White Note Cards and  Envelopes.  They are precut and prescored.  The beautiful spring weather that we have been having made me think of gardening and yard work and Beatrice Potter's Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny.  So for today's card, I simply stamped the bunny and happy spring using stamps from the Fable Friends stamp set.  He really does look like a character right out of one of Beatrice Potter's Classic Children's Books.  


Handmade Happy Spring Card

Much to my chagrin, the Stampin' Blends did bleed through to the inside of my card.  Oopsie! The quick fix was to cut two 3" x 4-1/2"pieces of Petal Pink card stock.  They served as a quick cover-up and they added a happy bit of color.  Problem solved!  To add a touch of color to the envelope, I glued a piece of Best Dressed Designer Paper to the flap and trimmed.  Tada, I made a designer envelope!
