Stampin’ Up! Vertical Blooms Petal Patterns

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It’s been a bit crazy here at my house. Between getting paper shares cut and shipped out, painting, moving furniture around and trying to find time to make some cards. The next couple weeks are going to be very hectic. We’re getting new windows in a couple rooms tomorrow, then we have to get everything out of the rooms for the floors to be refinished. My husband ripped the carpet out of a couple of the bedrooms and we have hardwood floors, so they are coming to sand and refinish them. It will all look beautiful when it’s done, but until then, my house is going to be upside down.

I played with some new items for today’s card. A new stamp set, new dies, new embossing folder and new colors. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Vertical Blooms 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Vertical Blooms Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set, Petal Patterns Dies and Exposed Brick 3D Embossing Folder for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Vertical Blooms 2

I started by embossing a Pool Party card front using the Exposed Brick 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Pool Party card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut panels of Azure Afternoon and Lemon Lolly cardstock using the Petal Patterns Dies. I adhered them together lining up the flowers. I cut 2 rows of flowers off using Paper Snips. I adhered the layered die to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Vertical Blooms stamp set in Azure Afternoon Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Solid Gems to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings set in Azure Afternoon Ink on a panel of Basic White. I stamped the stem/leave image from the Vertical Blooms stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Pool Party Ink. I stamped the flower image from the Vertical Blooms stamp set in Lemon Lolly Ink on the stems. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stem/leave images from the Vertical Blooms stamp set in Pool Party Ink on the envelope front and flap. I stamped the flower images from the Vertical Blooms stamp set in Azure Afternoon and Lemon Lolly Inks on the stems.

If you need any stamping supplies, I’d love to be your Demonstrator. Just click HERE to go directly to my online store or drop me an email if you have any questions. 


Use this host code when placing an order with me. When you order $50 or greater you will receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any 1 item valued up to $10.00 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog or the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog!  Unfortunately, packs of cardstock are no longer an option for a free gift. Shipping has become too expensive to ship and it’s costing me as much to ship as the cardstock costs. For any orders $50 or more I will also send you my monthly class tutorials.  Click HERE or go to my Customer Rewards for more details and to see what this month’s tutorials are.

Please remember to use my current Host Code and make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout page listed as your Demonstrator when you order so that you know that you’re ordering with me, and you’ll get my rewards! 

Happy Stamping, Karen


In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.
