Retired Set Sunday Pop Up Card: Blooming Flower Garden

Welcome back to Retired Set Sunday - where I combine something retired with something current from Stampin' Up! I hope this inspires you to dust off your old Stampin' Up! supplies and get creative. This week I created this beautiful pop-up z-fold card using the flowers from the Jar of Love Bundle. The tutorial can be purchased from the talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Bronwyn Eastley. Purchasing the tutorial helps her with her crafting business and it's inexpensive and easy to follow. So worth it! Here's the link: My card varies from hers because I created the fence with the retired Woodgrain background stamp and Modern Label Punch. Her tutorial will show you how to create it with current supplies. My colors and flower arrangements are different too. The possibilities are endless. See how versatile this stamp set is!
What I love about this card is that it folds flat and will fit in a standard size envelop! Amazing! I used the sentiment from Cottage Greetings on the second panel that says, Wishing You Ridiculous Amounts of Happiness.  When you peer down into the card, the flowers are glued to hills decorated with the Sheltering Tree Stamp. The background panels were created on watercolor paper washed with Island Indigo and an Aqua Painter. I used lots of water to get a feeling of the sky. 

Supply List:

  • Stamp Sets: Jar of Love, Sheltering Tree, Cottage Greetings, Woodgrain (retired)
  • Colors & Ink: Island Indigo, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Real Red and Night of Navy, Garden Green, Basic Black (to draw the seeds inside the yellow flowers)
  • Embellishments: Watercolor Paper
  • Tools: Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Fine Tip Glue Pen, Stampin' Trimmer, Stampin' Dimensionals, Paper Snips
  • Big Shot: Everyday Jars Framelits Dies
The Jar of Love bundle may be purchased with a 10% discount before the end of the month. The stamp and dies are carrying over to the new catalog in June, but they will no longer be available as a discounted bundle. If you'd like to order online just click HERE and please choose me as your demonstrator.

Updated Color Chart in SU Catalog Font

Updated Color Chart with New In Colors
Click Photo to Download Chart
Hello Friends! I've updated the blank color chart featuring the new Stampin' Up! In Colors for 2017-2019; Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist; Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide. It even matches the font from the new Stampin' Up! catalog. Feel free to download and share. The idea is to help you organize your papers and ink. You can also use it to coordinate colors. There are spots for you to punch out a color sample, scribble with the coordinating marker and stamp any image of your choice. For best results, print the pages on Whisper White card stock. You will be able to order all of the new In Color papers and ink starting June 1st! Happy Crafting!

We Create Blog Hop - May Step it Up

Welcome to our May Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who love to create a simple project and then a “stepped up” version.  It’s so fun to connect with each other and share creative ideas.  I'm so happy you stopped by.
Simple Version
Featuring . . . the Cool Treats bundle along with the Tasty Treats Designer Paper from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog. My simple card was created with a Pool Party cardstock base. The Tasty Treats DSP includes 12 different sheets of five 12" x 12" double sided designs. The circles were cut out with the Layering Circles Framelits in Pool Party and Peekaboo Peach cardstock. Now for the fun part! All of the ice cream parts were cut out with the Frozen Treats Framelits Dies. The little strawberry on top was cut out twice in Watermelon Wonder and Pear Pizzazz. I cut the stem off of the Pear Pizzazz strawberry and glued it to the top of the Watermelon Wonder strawberry. Last, the sentiment from Cool Treats was stamped with Chocolate Chip onto Whisper White Cardstock.

Stepped Up Version
The stepped up version is a slider card. When you pull up the ribbon, the inside of the card moves up along with the embellishment on the front. There are lots of tutorials for slider cards online. I found this YouTube video by Dawn's Stampin' Thoughts to be easy to follow. In the photo above, you can see three different pieces of the Tasty Treats DSP. I am in love with this paper!
