My First Two Versions of My Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Cards

My first version of my Stampin' Up! Delicate Dahlias cards www.stampingsmiles.comIt’s fascinating how each version of my Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias cards are beautiful on their own but seemingly better with each addition. The first card idea was with the solid flowers only. The detail and depth of shading provided with any of the DistINKtive stamps are always astounding. 

 

The second version has the addition of the outline dahlia stamps in the same color. The outline defined the petals.

The third version was with the outline in black. You can see the full blog post and pictures of my Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias card HERE.

 

Compare the first two versions side-by-side. Do you prefer the softness of the first card idea or the more defined look?

The focus has been, deservedly, on the flowers. But, the irregular shape die-cut behind them adds a very nice element of interest. The shape is from the new Layering Diorama Dies. You can see how they will work for much more than water as what seemed to be how they were used in samples from the 2021-2022 Stampin’ Up! Catalog

 

The supplies for all three versions are the same and are listed below.

Delightful Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Card with 2 Stepped-Up Versions!

Delightful Stampin' Up! Delicate Dahlias card with two stepped-up versions www.stampingsmiles.comThis handmade greeting card is actually the third version of it. The same layout, colors, and flowers, the differences are the choice of how the dahlias are stamped. I’ll share the other two in another blog post soon. The funny thing is, I expected this version of my Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias card to be my least favorite. That’s how it goes sometimes during the designing process, right? 

 

The asymmetrical oval was made with the new Layering Diorama Dies. That’s some sort of fancy happening there to dress up our handmade greeting cards. 🙂 Behind it is one of the patterns from the FREE-with-$50 order Beautifully Penned 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. It’s just one of the many free gifts with purchase during the Sale-a-bration Special ONLY through September 30, 2021.

 

I was pleased with my card design but decided a greeting would be nice. The “thank you Kindly” is included in the Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set. Another of the Sale-a-bration FREE gifts with purchase.

Now that we had a greeting, it certainly called for some ribbon. The color-coordinating Just Jade 3/8″ Gingham Ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Combo Pack is a wonderful finishing touch.

The DistINKtive Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias flower stamps were stamped with Melon Mambo Classic Stampin’ Pad ink. The shading and depth are simply remarkable. Those are the results you enjoy with the patent-pending process for manufacturing rubber stamps. What’s even more astounding is that Stampin’ Up! has been able to achieve the results with both their red rubber and photopolymer (clear) stamps.

A Girly Card Idea with Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels

A girly handmade greeting card with the Stampin' Up! Nuts About Squirrels Stamp SetSquirrels are out running about throughout the entire year. Even though the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels Stamp Set is thought of as a fall stamp set as part of the July-December 2021 Stampin’ Up! Catalog, it certainly can also be used for an adorable girly handmade birthday card idea. 

 

 

Look at how stinkin’ cute the squirrel is! She’s pink. There is such a thing as red squirrels. Why not pink?  And, just to be sure, eyelashes were added just so there’s no doubt it’s a girl squirrel. 🙂 My girlfriend suggested the eyelashes. I used an Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker from the Neutrals Stampin’ Write Markers set to quickly draw them.

The greeting “Nuts about you!” is a fun pun. I forgot to take a picture of inside the card before giving it away, but it read “Happy Birthday” which is part of the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels Set.

The flowered background paper is from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper. Polished pink is one of the colors in the paper and was also used for my girl squirrel. Every girly card also needs some ribbon. The new Polished Pink 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon is awfully pretty. So, too, are the other 2021-2022 In Color ribbons of the same style.
