Stampin’ Up! Ornate Horizontal Thanks

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is your weekend going?  I had off all day yesterday, but I have to go in today to work.  Were any of you able to watch our Ornate Garden Facebook Live Event yesterday?  We had so much fun creating the cards.  If you were able to watch, I appreciate you,  if you weren’t able to watch, you can still go over and watch all the replays.  I think we gave everyone a lot of inspiration.

Here is one of the cards I made yesterday on my Facebook Live.  If you’d like to watch the video, here is the link

The colors in my card were from Inspire. Create Color Challenge #067.  Here is their color pallet.

I also joined in with the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #491.  Here is their theme.

I started by coloring a panel of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper using my Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive Pool Party and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Using the Ornate Borders Dies, I cut the edge of a Blackberry Bliss card front.  Isn’t that die cut just beautiful.  I adhered the colored panel of Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the Blackberry Bliss card front using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of the Old Olive 1/4″ Ornate Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot.  I added a Glue Dot under the knot to hold it in place.  I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Ornate Layers Dies I cut a Gold Foil Sheet using one of the smaller frames.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, which i cut using the smallest Stitched Rectangle Die, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the Gold Foil frame using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels, which i colored using my Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Marker, to the center of the cut flowers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the 4 corners of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive, Pool Party and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small flower image from the Ornate Style stamps set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive, Pool Party and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a colored panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The list of supplies are below along with the measurements if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video.  You can watch it on my Facebook page Here.

  1. Yesterday was great fun. I was impressed that you did TWO wonderful cards! The die cut on this really stands out on the pool party. Thanks for all the ideas and inspiration.
    (So funny–you said you only make one unique card while I was sitting there putting together 18 exactly-the-same cards for friends and nursing homes!)
