Making A CASE with Ginkgo Branch

Have you browsed through the new Mini Catalog? It is filled with fun new products and so many great ideas! I needed to make several sympathy cards and when I saw this beautiful card idea (on page 57) in the new Mini Catalog I decided to CASE it. CASE simply means to Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit.
Stampin' Up! Ginkgo Branch slimline sympathy card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I selectively edited a few things! Here’s the details for this slimline card:

  • Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock – 7 x 8 1/2, scored at 3 1/2 for card base
  • Very Vanilla – 3 3/8 x 8 3/8 heat embossed using background stamp and clear embossing powder, scrap to stamp sentiment and cut with Stylish Shapes Die
  • Shimmery White Cardstock – die cut Ginkgo Branch flower dies (2 large, 3 small)
  • Polished Pink cardstock – die cut circle with Stylish Shapes Die
  • Simply Elegant Trim – ~18 in.

The sample card in the catalog used the Chic Dies to add a textured layer behind the flowers.  Instead, I used a retired stamp (En Francais), stamped it with VersaMark, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I love the subtle texture it adds in the background.

It’s been awhile since I watercolored and I love the new Water Painters! I used Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody, Polished Pink, Melon Mambo, and Pear Pizzazz to color the flowers.  *Note- you do not want to pick up ink directly from the Stampin’ Pads. Just add a few drops of ink refills inside the lids of the Stamping’ Pads for a pallet to use with the water painters.

The Ginkgo Branch Bundle caught my eye right away in the new catalog! It is so different from other flower stamps and dies I have and can be used for many different occasions.

My Happiest Season for the Pals Blog Hop

Blog Hop Badge August 2020Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team is showcasing “My Happiest Season.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I love summer and the beach. It’s definitely my happy place! My card today is a slimline card created with Seaside Notions and the new Seabed 3D Embossing folder.

The colors of this card remind me of a seaside resort. Our summer has certainly been different this year. Instead of our usual family vacation I have to imagine I am walking along the shoreline and combing the beach for shells and sea glass. Here’s my “collection” of shells to go with my card.

I love to make cards and gifts to coordinate. The elegant sheer pool party ribbon was perfect to wrap up the Clear tiny treat box. I hope the recipient will enjoy the chocolate covered version of shells.

I heat embossed the shells and seahorse on Shimmery White using Versamark and Gold Embossing Powder. I colored them using an Aqua painter and pool party ink then fussy cut them and adhered to my projects with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I even colored a few for the inside of the card. I love that there is a lot of room for a handwritten message or large stamped sentiment.

I am enjoying making these larger cards which fit perfectly in a #10 size business or “resume” envelope. You could make this card for any occasion using the Well Written Dies. These are so easy to adhere using the new adhesive sheets!
