Hey Guys! Today I am sharing with you another card from the Occasions Catalog by Stampin’ Up! I LOVE the stamp sets Painted Poppies and Parisian Beauty. So, putting them together is a No Brainer for me! I got the stem from the stamp set Daisy Lane because I wanted the flower to have one. Surprisingly, I got the DSP from the Sale-A-Bration catalog the Golden Honey Specialty DSP. It’s cool because the inside of the card shows the other side.
Here is a pic of the inside:
For both the inside and front I used a strip of Gold Foil to set the ‘line’ where the DSP starts. I love black and white cards with a punch of color, don’t you? Also, I added the Champagne Rhinestones to the front to give it some added sparkle. Gotta have sparkle!
Here is the specifics for this card:
Stamps: Honey Bee, Painted Poppies, Daisy Lane
Inks: Memento Black Blends: Calypso Coral, Old Olive
Cardstock: Basic Black 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, scrap for ‘Amour’ Whisper White 6 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ scored at 4″ on long side Golden Honey DSP 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ Gold Foil 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ (x2)
Misc: Champagne Rhinestones Parisian Dies Wink of Stella Paper snips for cutting out flower/stem Dimensionals
I hope you like this card as much as I do! Usually, I don’t come up with my own designs, but since there aren’t many samples out there, I had to this time! Please let me know what you think!
If you are looking for a Demonstrator and live in the US, let me know what I can do to help you in your creative process! I can mail you out a catalog if you need one, and if you purchase from my Online Store I will send you a handmade card, a small thank you gift and 30 +/- tutorials that change every month!

Today I am sharing a NEW stamp set due out in June from SU!, called Colorful Seasons! I also used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits with it!
Here is what I made:
I want to be sitting in that chair drinking some tea and watching the water go by! Don’t you? To make this card look like it was in a frame, I made my own frame out of Soft Sky cardstock from Stampin’ Up!
I also used the stamp set Lovely as a Tree to give the scene some dimension! I had this card in my head since Friday and I just HAD to try and see if I could get it to come out of my head onto card stock and look just as pretty! I think I did, what do you think?
Here is a closeup of the flowers in the tree:
I cut out the stamped images using the Thinlit and then with the Berry Blast inked flower I added some of SU!’s Fine Tip Glue so it would make it look puffy and shiny! Love these new Colors! For the light pink I used the NEW In Color Powder Pink!
Here is a side view of the card so you can see how I made it look framed:
All of the flowers and the branches come off the framed Soft Sky piece of card stock! I DID add pieces of the Foam Adhesive Strips onto the back of not only the Soft Sky but also each flower, so they wouldn’t get squished down with mailing. I wanted more space than what the Dimensionals would give me so that’s why I used it.
That adirondack (spelling?) chair is so stinkin’ cute! Right? Do you see the glass of ‘tea’ I have sitting there?
Here’s the inside of the card:

Today I TRIED to do a Facebook Live, and it came out ok, but I REALLY need to practice more! hahahaha
I wanted to share with you today TWO/Three NEW sets from SU! that is coming out in June! The reason I say Two/Three is because I am showcasing a set that has a Thinlit that works with it. Not sure you would say they are separate sets, but they could be used apart.
The one I am sooooo excited about it Eastern Beauty and Eastern Medallions! This set is so Versatile! You can use the stamp set to make ALL kinds of great designs! I have to still work on seeing what it does, so for now I will be sharing the card I made using the Eastern Medallion thinlits and a few of the stamps!!
Here is the card:
VERY pretty colors, right? This is made with a lot of the framelits. The cool thing is that you can mix and match them! The one on the card that has the popped up part, is usually solid in the middle. I used one of the other thinlits and placed it in the middle and made it so you can see through it! Here is a sheet showing the one still attached to the cardstock and the other framelits in the set:
If you want to cut out an image to either put in the center. or cut out a center, you can see this piece leaves just the cutouts that you see:
OR if you want to cut out the image, use the smallest circle from the Layering Circles #141705 and t cuts it out perfectly!
Doesn’t Stampin’ Up! think of everything! 🙂
I started with a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Watercolor Paper and placed a lot of the Thinlits on the Watercolor paper, then added to them, to get the look I wanted. I then got my Aqua Painter and colored some of the new pretty In Colors on the top of the Water Color Paper, making it as bright and pretty as I could!
I used Wink of Stella to make the paper sparkle and then popped up the piece in the center left by making the edges pull up (the piece doesn’t pop out all the way, just the petal edges). I placed Dimensionals on the bottom of the entire Piece of Paper and then placed it on 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ piece of Copper Foil. It looks so pretty in person, with the copper peeking out!
I stamped the saying from Eastern Beauty “enjoy today” on the right center and then used clear Embossing powder on it to make it more textural (I LOVE that our inks are wet enough to do this!!)
I used the brand new Glitter Enamel Dots that I got from attending OnStage in Savannah GA!! If you are a demonstrator one of the MANY perks is that you get to see product before anyone else! AND if you attend OnStage (which is all over the world!) you can pre-buy certain product before other demos that didn’t attend! Of course I HAVE to go, so I can see/touch and order new goodies……as I’ve said MULTIPLE times, I am NOT a patient person! LOL
For the added touch before putting it onto the Berry Burst Cardstock I wrapped some Copper Thread so it peeks out of the side of the lifted petal and goes around the sentiment!
Here is the inside of the card!
Again, I used the stamps from the Eastern Beauty to adorn the inside! Well? Do you like it?
On my Facebook Live Video New Sneak Peek Stamp sets I also showed another card. I showed how this one was made, so I will show you the picture and if you want to see it made, go see the video…..just ignore how silly I look/sound/act……..this is what happens when you are not super experienced at it! HAHAHAHA
I won’t show you the one I tried to make better on the video, because in the long run, I liked this one better!
Here is the inside:
I really love the Copper on the Designer Series Paper (DSP), don’t you?! And the leaf in Copper looks so pretty on the inside!
