I love the new Life is Beautiful stamp set from Stampin' Up! This set is available in the 2020 August - December Mini Catalog. You can begin ordering from this catalog on Tuesday, August 4. Whether you want snow showers, spring flowers, or autumn leaves, you can do it all with this stamp set. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
The polka dot tulle ribbon is knotted under the cardstock circle with the sentiment. I decided for this card, I didn't want to see the knot or bow, but I liked the look of the ribbon across the card and then the ends poking out from under the sentiment. I cut the Flirty Flamingo and Vellum cardstock with the Stitched circle dies. To glue the vellum, I used multipurpose glue and then used a sponge to sponge it on more evenly across the shape.
I love the way the little stars stamp represents flowers on this tree. It's so soft and springlike.
I tied sheer Pool Party ribbon around the front and mounted it on pieces of Pool Party and Coastal Cabana cardstock. I stamped the greeting with Jet Black Stazon ink on Coastal Cabana cardstock and trimmed one side as a banner end. For a little bling, I added a few of my favorite Artistry Blooms Sequins. These self-adhesive sequins easily add touches of shimmer, but since they are Pool Party in color, they don't show well in this photo.
Simple Card Sketch for Quick Cards
For last night's Mystery Stamping event, we created cards using 5 strips of Designer Series Paper, a focal image, and a simple greeting strip. These cards are quick and easy and a great way to show off patterned paper while still using a stamped image.
Today I have a beautiful double easel card to share with you featuring the To a Wild Rose stamp set. These double easel cards are easy to make. While they don't take a lot of time, they have a stunning effect and definitely have that little something extra that is so special for the recipient. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
Start by folding the piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock in half along the score line. Fold the piece of Petal Pink cardstock as an accordian. Adhere it as shown to the front of your folded card. The white card base should open on top and the first fold of the Petal Pink should be on the bottom.
Stamp the roses from the To a Wild Rose stamp set with Petal Pink ink. I used only the two inside stamps for these roses. Stamp the centers with Crumb Cake ink. Stamp the leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink. For these leaves, I only used one detail stamp - the one with the stems. Cut the images with the Rose dies.

My third card features the Plaid Tidings DSP that will be in the new August-December Mini Catalog. These plaids are awesome! I chose ones that used Mango Melody and Rich Razzleberry, but there are lots more to choose from and I probably could have chosen four or five different color schemes to use for this card with this paper. The colors are just so beautiful. I want to gobble it up.
To go with the fabulous paper, I used the Pattern Play stamp set. And, I added a few of the adhesive backed sequins. These things are the bomb! They are so iridescent and sparkly and they already have adhesive on them. So you just have to peel them off the backing and put them down on your card. So easy and so pretty! If you haven't picked up a pack yet, you should definitely add them to your next order. They are hands down my favorite embellishment right now. I just wish there were more colors!
For my final card of this series, I tried really hard to use up the rest of my scraps of the Flowers for Every Season DSP. I had a lot of 1/2" strips. So, I made a lot more skinnier banners than the original cards. I finished the card with the To a Wild Rose stamp set and some Bumblebee gingham ribbon.
This sketch was so much fun to work with! I can't wait to see what all my Mystery Stampers created with it.
