Heartfelt Blooms for Love

Stampin Up Heartfelt Blooms Waterfront Petal Passion DSP Love card ideas Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU

Lemon Lime Twist takes center stage in this project. The Heartfelt Blooms stamp, which is FREE during Sale-A-ration when you spend $50 in SU products, was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist ink on Lemon Lime Twist card stock.

A 3/4″ piece of Petal Passion DSP and flagged on one end was jazzed up with a piece of 1/4″ Ombre Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon. (I just ran a strip of Fast Fuse along the DSP and then folded the ribbon over on itself and over the fast fuse.)

The sentiment stamped in Memento Black Ink is from the Waterfront Photopolymer Stamp Set and was cropped with the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies.

The entire panel was mounted with SU Foam Adhesive Strips. A few Nuvo drops in Bottle Green coordinates nicely. A quick and easy card with a Wow factor.

Thanks for stopping by!

Petal Passion Masculine Birthday Card

The title sounds like an oxymoron doesn’t it? Well check this out…

Stampin Up Petal Passion DSP MFT All About You Birthday card idea Masculine card Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU MFT

Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper usually has two sides; one is a bold or dramatic print and the other a small or geometric accent print. I typically chose these prints for my cards.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things (MFT) All About You. It has three coordinating dies of the word YOU in different fonts. It is a very versatile set.

The metal embellishment were Retired Urban Underground Embellishments from the 2017 SU Occasions catalog. I loved that masculine suite.

The Happy Birthday To was heat embossed with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The YOU was cut out of Basic Black card stock with Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets attached so the die cut is like a sticker when you add it to your card. I use this for all my dies cuts now.

The inside was adorned with another 3/4″ strip of DSP framed with a 1″ piece of Basic Black card stock. I love to bring the front of the card to the inside as well. The sentiment is from the Picture Perfect Photopolymer Stamp set. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this font.

I know masculine cards are a bit tougher for many. Remember to look at the backside of your DSP and you might just find the inspiration for your masculine card.

Naturally Celebrating You

 

Stampin Up Perennial Birthday Stamp Naturally Electic DSP Birthday card idea Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU

 

Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist produce the WOW factor for this card. The Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper from the annual catalog is the inspiration.

The sentiment is from the NEW Perennial Birthday stamp set. The flowers that surround the sentiment were created using a framelit die from Bouquet Bunch Framelits and the leaves from the Perennial Birthday stamp set. I think the flowers look just like those in the DSP. Basic Rhinestone Jewels adorn each flower for sparkle.

Pals January Blog Hop – From the Heart

Welcome to the Pals January 2018 Blog Hop. Our theme this month is “From the Heart” featuring heartfelt projects like Valentine’s Day, Thinking of You, Get Well and Sympathy. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

I created two cards that could be valentine’s or simply a note tucked into the briefcase or lunch box of someone you love.

Stampin Up Heart Happiness stamp set January 2018 Pals Blog Hop Love Card ideas Michelle Gleeson StampinUp SU

The first card was created using Crumb Cake, Powder Pink and Whisper White. The base of the card was stamped with the small cluster of hearts from the NEW Heart Happiness stamp set with Versamark Ink. Then I layered vellum, Powder Pink card stock cut with the Layering Squares Framelits, and another heart from the Heart Happiness stamp set. I do not have the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies to crop the heart yet my Paper Snips made the task a cinch. The sentiment is from Blooming’ Love and was stamped and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Embossing Powder. A few Rhinestone Basic Jewels add the finishing touch. I think this turned out very sweet.

The second card followed the same formula. The small cluster of hearts was stamped with Crumb Cake ink on the Crumb Cake card stock. You can see the hearts are more pronounced. The Real Red scallop circle is from the Layering Circles Framelits. The heart was stamped in Real Red ink and is also in the Heart Happiness stamp set. This heart coordinates with the Sweet and Sassy Framelits and was cut with a die. It was adorned with small pearls from the Pearl Basic Jewels. The sentiment is also from Blooming’ Love. A small bow was added using 1/8″ Whisper White Sheer Ribbon.
