Step It Up: Flower & Field Designer Series Paper

http://www.stampinup.com/products/ridiculously-awesome-cling-stamp-set?demoid=2095650
CASUAL
To create our casual card, stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink on a layer of Basic White Cardstock, then adhere the stamped cardstock to the Mint Macaron card base. Stamp the heart image in Flirty Flamingo ink using the stamp-off technique. Then, punch five banners from our Flower & Field Designer Series Paper using the Banners Pick a Punch. Adhere the banners to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and tie with a Linen Thread bow. Done! You have the perfect, easy card to let someone know you care.
AVID
Add a little extra detail to the second card by spritzing with Bumblebee Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill using the Stampin’ Spritzer. Embellish the banners with flowers die cut using the Wreath Builder Dies, and add 2020–2022 In Color Enamel Dots. Die cut the sentiment using the Stitched Rectangles Dies, then finish with a fussy-cut, stamped heart popped up with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Pretty sweet! 
ARTFULLY AVID
For our artfully avid card, we adhered additional flowers fussy cut from Designer Series Paper, plus some Vellum Cardstock. For an extra-lavish look, we layered on a die-cut heart and a fussy-cut sentiment, then amped up the artistry even more with a lacy edge made using Flower & Field Designer Series Paper and the Budding Blooms Dies
Stepping up your cards is so much fun! Start simple and go big. Mix and match until you find the look that is right for you. You could even invite friends over to brainstorm avid and artfully avid alternatives for the casual card. We can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon!

Simple Stamping

We’ve rung in the New Year, and with 2021 comes plenty of new reasons to stamp sweet cards for friends, neighbors, co‑workers, and anyone you know who could use a little cheer and encouragement. We recommend keeping your stamping simple. That way you will have tons of cards to give away in no time!
In fact, if you CASE the cards you see here, you’ll be halfway there! We added interest to these easy‑to‑make cards in three ways: We adhered Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper strips at different angles for the You Did It card and stamped directly on this same Designer Series Paper with our Cue the Confetti and Whale Done cards. You can come up with other ideas by checking social media boards or by thumbing through the catalog.

Back to Back Blooms -Step It Up

CASUAL
To create this lovely, heartfelt card, use a Stamparatus to line up the floral images from the Back to Back Blooms Stamp Set, then stamp them in Bumblebee and Mint Macaron ink on a Basic White Cardstock layer. (We overlapped the stamping onto the Mint Macaron Cardstock card base for some extra sophistication and prettiness!) Stamp the sentiment from the Heal Your Heart Stamp Set in Mint Macaron and Misty Moonlight ink on the Basic White Cardstock label. Finally, adhere the label to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Done! You have an elegant thank you card ready to send in no time at all! 
AVID
Step up the second card by adding a lacy edge to the Basic White layer using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. This additional step takes about a minute and instantly enhances the card’s beauty. Once that’s finished, adhere fussy-cut flowers from the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper to the front of the card to create a gorgeous, full bouquet. A sprinkling of Opal Rounds completes the look. Tip: Use your Stamparatus to stamp the line art images first. Then, clean the stamp and position it to stamp the solid floral image. (Stamp off the solid image before stamping on the project.) 
ARTFULLY AVID
For our fanciest card, we fussy cut the stamped images and adhered an additional layer of Designer Series Paper to the card front. We also die cut the label using the Stitched Nested Label Dies and then—for a final touch—stamped the sentiment on Soft Sea Foam Cardstock. Isn’t it stunning? Sometimes the smallest details can make all the difference in your papercrafting!

Memory Keeping Made Easy

Memory keeping does not have to be a chore. In fact, it can be a fabulous experience when you use our Memories & More Card Packs! All you need is a Basic Black 6″ x 8″ (15.2 x 20.3 cm) Album, Variety Pack 6″ x 8″ (15.2 x 20.3) Photo Pocket Pages, and your choice of Memories & More Card Packs.
Filling the album pages is easy! Simply insert photos, then add double-sided cards, specialty cards, and embellishments from the Memories & More Card Pack for a super-simple way to preserve your memories.
For extra fun, you may want to decorate the album cover. As you can see with our masculine Hello Adventure Album, we fussy cut images and sentiments using World of Good Memories & More Cards. The torn edges on the Designer Series Paper add a rugged texture—or you might want to add a little ink spatter using a Water Painter and ink to give it a “grunge” look and feel.
To create the Beautiful Baby Girl Album, we fussy cut flowers and die-cut letters (using Playful Alphabet Dies) from the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper. We also stamped floral images on the Designer Series Paper for added interest. The result is pretty and feminine and oh-so-easy to achieve!
We hope we’ve inspired you to get out your shoeboxes filled with photos and give them a new home!
