PETAL PROMENADE QUICK AND EASY - May Stamp Camp

Hello, Stampers!
     I hope all of you stamper Moms had a lovely Mother's Day, despite the weather (if you are in Indiana.)  ;-(  At Saturday's stamp camp we used retiring Designer Series Papers in various ways on all of your projects!  Good news?  The Pearlized Doilies will be carried over!  I just love them.
     TIP:  Use a color that coordinates with your DSP for your mat and behind the sentiment - coordinating colors are listed on the back of your DSP pack.
     This first card, using the beautiful Petal Promenade DSP is very Q&E.  It also makes a lovely sympathy, get well, Mother's Day, wedding or anniversary card.  So, if you have some favorite DSP that is retiring, use it and you'll end up with plenty of last-minute cards if you leave the sentiment blank until you need it.  The front and inside sentiments on this card are from the Perennial Birthday set.  Here are the simple measurements and supplies for the above card.
.
Happy Stampin’!

STAMPIN' UP!S COUNTRY FLORAL DYNAMIC TIEF - THE ALL-OCCASION CARD FOR YOUR PERSONAL STASH

Hello, Stampers!
     I can't get enough of this Dynamic TIEF - Country Floral.  This TIEF will be carried over to the Annual Catalog.
     I created this simple card (and others) to keep on hand - an appropriate sentiment to be die-cut or punched out and added later, as needed.  It's a little bright and cheery for a condolence card,* but it's just right for Easter, spring, birthday, anniversary, get well or "just checking in."  The details are below.

*See my February 28 post for a softer look that would be appropriate for a condolence card.

Happy Stampin’!

Details
  • The Gingham Gala DSP covers the front of the card base, an A2 top fold in Whisper White Thick CS.  The Country Floral embossed piece is 1/4 sheet of Shimmery White CS, trimmed to 5 x 3-3/4 after embossing.
  • After embossing, I used Stampin' Blends in the colors below to color the flowers and leaves and a few random larger dots here and there.  I added a sheer ribbon and then adhered the layers with Multi liquid glue.  I added pearls to the center of the Light Calypso Coral flowers from the Share What You Love pearls.

QUICK & EASY ARTISTICALLY ASIAN

Hi, Stampers!
     Just two things before we get started on this card:  I apologize if I got you excited for the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog and that you could order on September 1 in my last post.  That was incorrect.  The effective date of the HC is September 5.. Second, don't forget, Stamp Camp is next Saturday, August 25!  Once again, I will have projects sheets for you!  Please don't forget to RSVP by the end of the day Monday.  Thanks!  Now, on to our card.
     Some of the patterns in the Share What You Love Specialty DSP felt oriental to me, so I decided to pair one of them with the Artistically Asian stamp set.  I've added a close-up so you can see the lovely pearl satin sheen on the flowers.  Four of the patterns in this pack have pearl/satin accents.  
     Unfortunately, some of the cards we need the fastest are sympathy, get-well and thank you, and Artistically Asian works for all.  Click on the images below to view the the DSP and included sentiments on my SU! online store.
     Wonder what the Japanese writing/symbols mean?  I'm told that the one I used above means "friendship," and the other, "faith."  Let's get started.
