Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Just A Note

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all doing well today. Can you believe August is over? This has been the hottest August I remember in a long time. We’re still in the 90’s here in NJ. Today is the absolute LAST DAY to earn free Sale-a-bration items. If there is anything you’ve been wanting, today is the day to get it!!

Today’s card I used a new item that you will be able to purchase starting tomorrow, YAY!!! Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the new Fresh Cut Stems Dies for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 2

I started by stamping the large flower image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my new Fresh Cut Stems Dies (available starting Sept 1- Sept 30). Using my Fresh Cut Stems Dies I cut 2 of the larger sprigs from a panel of Basic White cardstock and 3 of the small sprigs from a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 3

I cut the edge of a Basic White card front using the Fresh Cut Stems Dies. Using my Blending Brush, I added a little Tahitian Tide Ink to the center of the Basic White card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 4

I wrapped a piece of Parakeet Party 1/8″ Metallic Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Parakeet Party card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the large flower image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sprigs under the floral image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 5

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image in using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Parakeet Party mat and then to the inside of the Parakeet Party card base.

Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Note 6

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral images from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and flap. I colored the images in using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

We created six new dies that coordinate with stamp sets in the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog and the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog. These coordinating dies will only be available during this promotion and will not be offered in any catalog.
