Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Gallery- April 2022- Stampin’ Up!®Uniquely Artistic

I am so excited to be participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight Gallery with Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world! The theme for the Gallery is “Thank You”.

The stamp set I am using today is a new one in the 2022-23 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog that will be live on May 3, 2022! Because I am a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I received the Uniquely Artistic stamp set when I signed up for the On Tour Business Training this last Saturday. I really enjoyed the meeting and learned some great tips!

This card was so fun to create! The stamp set has beautiful floral images. There are not any sentiments in this set. I used the “Thank You” from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set.

I created this card while spending the weekend at a craft retreat with 73 other crafters! I had such a good time catching up with friends and finishing some projects. Now I need to get back to my routine and get some blog posts written.

I wanted to make the flowers extra special. I added Wink of Stella to the petals and used the Opal Rounds for the centers.

I also decorated the inside panel. The colors used are: Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green.

If you are interested in receiving a FREE copy of the 2022-22 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, shoot me an email with your mailing address to: theresastreasures.az@gmail.com.

Friday Fun Fold Stampin’ Up!® Tulip Fields

“Let today be the start of something new” is the sentiment for the Friday Fun Fold Stampin’ Up!® Tulip Fields card today. It is a great inspirational sentiment to start the New Year!

This is an Inspirational Fun Fold card using Stampin' Up Tulip Fields stamp set and Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper.
Fun Fold Stampin’ Up!® Tulip Fields

This beautiful inspirational handmade fun fold card is really pretty simple to make. Just follow the step-by-step photographic tutorial below. A complete photographic and clickable supply list is found at the end of the blog.

Measurements for the Fun Fold Stampin’ Up!® Tulip Fields

Rich Razzleberry Card Stock (CS) card base: 8 1/2 x 11 inches. With the 8 1/2 inch edge on top, score at 2 1/8 and 6 3/8 inches. Turn the card stock so the 11 inch side is on top and score at 2 3/4 and 8 1/8 inches. Cut off the corners as shown.

  • Rich Razzleberry CS: 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inches.
  • Fresh Freesia CS: 1 x 10 inches scored at 2 1/8 and 6 3/4 inches.
  • Basic White CS: 2 1/4 x 4 inches and 4 x 5 1/4 inches (not shown)
  • Flowering Tulips Designer Series Paper (DSP): 2 x 2 1/2 inches. *Be sure the pattern is in portrait orientation

Stamping

Stamp on the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. The tulips are a 3 step stamp. The first step is to stamp the outline in the Rich Razzleberry Ink. The second step is done in the Fresh Freesia Ink with the stamp to fill in the color. Note: Remember to use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat or a catalog to stamp on when using the clear Photopolymer Stamps.

For the third step I used Blackberry Bliss Ink. Repeat the process for the tulip bud.

Add stems using Soft Succulent Ink. You will need to use a piece of paper to mask the tulip under the tulip bud when stamping the stem for the bud.

The leaves are 2 step stamps. I used the Evening Evergreen Ink first, then the Soft Succulent Ink. And there you have the inside of the card!

Using the Blackberry Bliss Ink, stamp the sentiment on the bottom portion of the 2 1/4 x 4 inch Basic White CS. Use the Label Me Lovely Punch to punch it out. Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the label to the 2 1/4 inch square of Rich Razzleberry CS.

Assembling the Card

To fold the Rich Razzleberry CS card base, start by folding the bottom flap up. Fold the left-hand flap to the right. Then fold the top flap down. Finally, fold the right-hand flap over to the left.

Now tuck the bottom corner of the right-hand flap under the right-hand corner of the bottom flap. This is the same as the way you would fold the top of a box. Tip: Be more gentle than I was as I made a slight crease on the bottom flap.

Adhere the Flowering Tulip DSP pieces as shown.

Open the card up and adhere the inside panel to the inside of the card base.

Fold the card and wrap the 1 x 10 inch Fresh Freesia CS band around the middle of the card. Adhere at the front. Be sure NOT to adhere the band to the card. Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the band and adhere the sentiment label to the band. The band shown slide off easily.

Bling!

One of my favorite embellishments in the new 2022 Stampin’ Up! January-June Mini Catalog is the Brushed Brass Butterflies! You can easily transfer the butterflies to your card with the Take Your Pick tool. They are so shiny!

This beautiful handmade inspirational fun fold card is simple to make using Stampin' Up! products including the Tulip Fields stamp set and Flowering Fields Designer Series paper.

Voila! The Fun Fold Stampin’ Up!® Tulip Fields inspirational card is finished! Give this one a try, it is a lot of fun. The first time around is always the most difficult. Tip: I often will make a new fun fold card with just the Basic White CS first until I get the hang of it.

Now we will make the front of the card. Using Balmy Blue Ink, stamp the image of the bird on the branch in the center of the 3 1/3 x 4 3/4 inch Basic White CS. Next stamp the sentiment “Hope you have the BEST BIRTHDAY” in Evening Evergreen Ink in the lower left-hand corner. Using the Pale Papaya Ink stamp the flowers around the bird. Now stamp in Granny Apple Green Ink using the sprig of leaves.

To complete the front of the card, stamp in Fresh Freesia Ink using the small berries.

Kylie Bertucci’s Top 10 International Blog Highlight Winners- Stampin Up!® Tulip Fields Thank You Card

I am so excited and thankful to be part of the Top 10 Winners Hop from Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight! Thank you to everyone who voted for my card from December’s International Blog Highlight, allowing me an opportunity to post on the Winners Hop. Ten fabulous demonstrators from around the world will be posting today! The theme for the card today is “Thank you”.

The “Thank You” sentiment I used is one of my favorite fonts. It is from the Pansy Patch stamp set.

I used the Masking Technique to get the thin rows of tulips in different colors. I also masked the windmill. The Blending Brushes take a while to get used to. I am just now feeling that the sky turned out the way I like it.

I used the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker to make the clouds appear more fluffy. The windmill was colored with Stampin’ Write Markers in Gray Granite, Crumb Cake and Balmy Blue.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day! Please visit all the rest of the Winners Blog Highlights!

Stampin’ Up!® Sneak Peek-Tulip Fields

I have another sneak peek from the upcoming 2022 Stampin’ Up! Jan-June Mini Catalog- Tulip Fields! This is an awesome stamp set which is part of the Flowering Fields Suite. This suite includes: 2 stamp sets, 2 die sets, the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper (DSP), Evening Evergreen Windowpane Check Ribbon, and Brushed Brass Butterflies!! If you want this Suite now you can get it in your Starter Kit when you join my Stamping Gems Team! More info on that will follow. Otherwise, the Flowering Fields Suite will be available for purchase on January 4, 2022.

It is so much fun to put scenes like this one together! I encourage you to take some time to let your creativity bubble up and see what your scene might look like!

Measurements for Sneak Peek-Tulip Fields

Sneak Peek-Tulip Fields

  • Pear Pizzazz Card Stock (CS): 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches
  • Basic White CS: two at 4 x 5 1/4 inches and a 1/2 x 3 inch strip.

Stamping the Tulip Fields

The first step is to use Memento Black Ink and stamp the windmill onto one of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. Also stamp a windmill onto a sticky note. (Full sticky notes work best and can be found on Amazon HERE.) The windmill will be used as a Mask.

Fussy cut the windmill stamped on the sticky note paper. Set aside. Now draw a light pencil line for the horizon and another 2 lines for the path away from the door of the wind mill.

The Masking Technique. First put a strip of sticky paper above the horizon. This is the first mask. Use Poppy Parade Ink to stamp the triangle of tulips as shown.

Cover the path with sticky note paper. Stamp in Daffodil Delight Ink to one side of the path. Move the sticky paper and then stamp on the other side of the path.

Use the sticky note paper to help you stamp a row of tulips in Mango Melody Ink between the Poppy Parade tulips and the Daffodil Delight tulips. To finish, complete the row of flowers up to the horizon stamping in Rich Razzleberry Ink.

Blending the Sky

Now move the sticky note strip so it is under the horizon. Apply the fussy cut windmill.

Use the Stampin’ Up! Blending Brushes to make a nice sky. Start with the Balmy Blue Ink. Move the Blending Brush in a circular motion on the ink pad. Then using the same circular motion, gradually apply the ink to your card front. I liked that the sky turned out a little blotchy. Next use Pacific Point Ink just around the edges to help the scene “Pop”!

Coloring the Windmill

Remove the sticky strip and the sticky windmill. Save the windmill to use again later. Use the Stampin’ Write Markers in Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede to color the windmill.

More Stamping

Reapply the sticky strip mask to define the path from the door of the windmill. Use Pear Pizzazz Ink and the triangle of tulip stamp to complete the path.

Tip: I used the Stampin’ Write Markers to fill in some small white spaces between the different colors of tulips.

A trick for stamping the tree in two colors. First ink up the tree in Pear Pizzazz ink. Then carefully ink up the trunk using the corner of the Soft Suede ink pad. Stamp the tree on the horizon.

Add some more smaller trees on the horizon.

Finishing Touches

Use Pear Pizzazz Ink to stamp the sentiment “happy birthday” from the Timeless Tulips stamp set onto a 1/2 inch strip of Basic White CS. Cut the right-hand end to look like a banner.

Another coordinating stamp set, Timeless Tulips, is in the 2021-22 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. With the Rich Razzleberry Ink, stamp a few of the small tulips on the second 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. Then stamp one in Mango Melody Ink and three in Poppy Parade Ink. Finish the stamping by adding some leaves in Pear Pizzazz Ink.

To create the clouds you will need the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker. First stamp the clouds in Balmy Blue Ink. Let them dry. Then use the Chalk Marker to add dimension to the clouds.

Assembling the Card

Adhere the windmill card piece to the front of the Pear Pizzazz CS card base. Then adhere the larger tulip piece to the inside of the card base. That’s all there is to it!

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the “happy birthday” sentiment and Voila! You have a beautiful little scene! That was so much fun! I just love how it turned out!
