June Tutorial


I hope that you and your family are well. I've been spending a lot of time making and sending cards. Just because, we are maintaining social distance it doesn't have to mean being disconnected. I'm doing my best to keep my spirits up and send a bit of sunshine and cheer with hand stamped cards. I hope that you've found creative ways to fill your time, fill your bucket, and fill a few people with joy, too! 
Have you seen the new Sharing Sunshine Giveback digital download that Stampin' Up! created? It's packed with relevant greetings and images from the heartfelt to the humorous. 100% of the money raised goes to support Covid-19 charity funds, so you can feel good about giving back and creating something meaningful.

A few of my go-to stamps and accessories are on the Retirement List. If you haven't checked it out and checked off your wish list — now is the time! This month's tutorial features several retiring products that are on my must-have list, including In Colors and the Painted Harvest stamp set.

Have you discovered the beauty of the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin? If not, I think you will be surprised at how quickly you can create a stunning card with them. I'm excited to show them to you in this tutorial. 
The tin is gorgeous and perfect for gift-giving and stylish storage. The set also includes 12 Very Vanilla laser-cut cards and 12 scallop-edged envelopes. Even better, they are one of the retiring items that are on sale! I'm also going to miss the Painted Harvest stamp set, so I thought I'd combine them and retiring In Colors to wish them all a fond farewell. Enjoy!

1. Cut & Glue

Cut Lovely Lipstick cardstock to 4-1/16" x 5-7/16". Open a Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Card. On the inside, add a very fine line of Multipurpose Liquid Glue around the edge that frames the laser-cut area. Add a few dots of glue around the laser-cut image.

2. Fold

Carefully place the Lovely Lipstick cardstock centered inside the Laser-Cut card and fold the card closed. Press the card front to adhere the Lovely Lipstick cardstock behind the Laser-Cut image.

3. Stamp Flower

On scrap Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the largest flower from the Painted Harvest stamp set with Grapefruit Grove ink. Stamp the smaller layering flower image on top with Lovely Lipstick ink. Stamp the flower center with Soft Suede ink.

4. Stamp Leaves

Ink the solid triple-leaf, two-step stamp image with Old Olive ink and stamp off once on scrap paper. Stamp onto scrap Very Vanilla cardstock. Ink the detailed triple-leaf stamp with Old Olive ink. Stamp over the first leaf. Repeat for a total of three triple-leaf images.

5. Stamp & Punch

Stamp greeting from Painted Harvest stamp set on scrap Crumb Cake cardstock with Lovely Lipstick ink. Punch out image and scrap Grapefruit Grove cardstock with the Label Me Lovely Punch. Cut Grapefruit Grove punch in half.

6. Layer Punches

Adhere the half pieces of the label punch behind the punched greeting label.

7. Die-Cut & Punch

Die cut stamped flower using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits set. Punch stamped leaves with Leaf Punch or hand cut them out.

8. Add Layers

Fold a 5" piece of Lovely Lipstick 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon into a "V". Adhere behind punched label with a Glue Dot. Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the die-cut flower and label to the laser-cut card front.

9. Finish Card 

Add Glue Dots to the base of each punched leaf stem. Slip the stems behind the label and adhered with the Glue Dots.
