Easy card with the Hand-Penned Suite from Stampin’ Up!

blog hop banner

Today I am going to share an easy card using the Hand-Penned Suite from Stampin’ Up!

If you haven’t hear yet, we have a brand new catalog and with that lots of brand new products! So it is a really excited time for us in the Stampin’ Up! world as we get to play with new suites. 

And with that being said, make sure you hop with us, as today’s blog hop is all about the brand new catalog, so I am sure you will see lots and lots of ideas with all the new products. 

So lets get started!

Meet the Hand-Penned Suite from Stampin’ Up! 

One of my favorite suites is the Hand-Penned Suite that Stampin’ Up! just released on May 4th.

Below you can see a picture of this gorgeous suite! 

Hand-Penned Suite from Stampin Up!

What I love the most of this suite is that the designer series paper (DSP) has lots of color combinations, so you can just pick whichever pattern you like and then take the color combo from there!!

The Hand-Penned Petals Stamp set is also a great stamp set. This set has line images so you can use it for several stamping techniques. You can water color the images or use the coordinating bold images to fill the bouquet of flowers, or use your alcohol markers to color the images as well. 

Like I mentioned, there are lots of options. 

For my card today, I decided to use the bold images to fill in the flowers in the flower bouquet. 

The Color Combination 

For the color combination, I picked a paper pattern and took a color combination from it.  You can see below the color combo I picked. 

This is always the easiest way to get color combinations that never fail! believe me! give it a try and you will see how easy this is. 

Easy Friendship Handmade Card 

Learn how to make an easy handmade card using the Hand-Penned Suite from Stampin' Up!

As you can see on my card the designer series paper really makes the card pop up.. It adds a lot of color and it makes every element of it flow better. 

For the focal point, I decided to use the image of the two flowers, and I colored them using the coordinating bold images from the same set. I loved how it looks and because the bold images do not cover every single area of the line image, it makes it look more artistic. 

One tip as you are stamping the image with the bold stamps, is to wait until the end.. you know when you put down the first stamp, it might feel like it’s not pretty, because of all the white area. But once you start adding the other images and color, you will notice the artistic look and I am sure you will love it.. so please don’t dismiss using those stamps!

The scallop border is part of the die set on the Hand-Penned Bundle. If you ask me, I think this is one of those dies you will want to use in a lot cards, as it cut the scallop, with the stitch marks along the border. Super cute! 

Below you will see the video tutorial with a step by step instructions on how to make this card.

Cute Friendship Cards

Blog Hop Banner - Share it Sunday

Would you want to make a set of cute Friendship Cards with the Kangaroo & Company set? If so you are in for a treat! As today I will be sharing with you three cute Friendship cards that you can send to your friends. 

But first let me share with you that today I am participating in a blog hop where my fellow demonstrators and I will be sharing some card ideas to inspire you. So please visit all blogs participating today, as you will get lots of great ideas and inspiration for your next crafting time. 

Without ado, let’s get started! 

Cute Friendship Cards with Kangaroo & Company 

The Kangaroo & Company set has a cute momma Kangaroo image that when you die cut it using its coordinating die set, you get a pouch where you can add some other accessories. You can customize this cute little momma Kangaroo with a baby kangaroo, flowers, gifts or like in my case with an envelope. 

I decided to use the envelope image on my cards, because I wanted to make “just because” cards for my friends. That way they are ready to go the next time I want to send a note to one of my friends.  Below the picture…

What do you think? 

How to make three cute friendship cards using the Kangaroo & Company bundle from Stampin' UP!

I really think they turned out super cute! don’t you agree?

One of the things I loved about this set is that you can use the images for multiple techniques. In the cards today I use a very simple technique.

I stamped the image in color cardstock (Cinnamon Cider) and then added highlights with the alcohol markers a.k.a. Stampin’ Blends. This added a nice look to the Kangaroo, but it was not a lot of work. 

Give it a try! I know you see how easy this was..  below you can find the video tutorial where I go step by step on how to color it with the alcohol markers, so make sure you watch it.

You can use this technique anytime you want to make several cards of the same design. Specially because this does not take too much time, plus it does not get overwhelming.   

The Color Combination

As far as the color combination, I used the Snail Mail Designer Paper as my inspiration for the color combo. 

I thought of this paper pack, mainly because I knew I wanted to put the envelope in the Kangaroo’s Pouch, and that trigger me to use this paper. 

Plus I really wanted to use the little heart embellishments that comes in the Snail Mail Suite. 

Card Sketches & Other Details 

As usual, I love using sketches and here you will see the sketches I used for each of these cards.

If you ever struggle with coming up with card ideas, then make sure you give it a try to sketches! I know the will hep you get creative in a snap! 

Cute Friendship handmade card using the Kangaroo & Company Bundle from Stampin' Up!

As for the coloring of the focal point on all of these cards, I used a very simple technique for the Kangaroo. 

You can see in this close up from of the Kangaroo more details of the coloring.

For instance it is soft, but you can see that I added cheeks on the kangaroo, and then added a darker color for the nose, compared to the highlights in its body. 

Like I said, this is a very simple technique but the finished product always makes it look really nice. 

Also you will notice in this close us that you can play with the designer series paper patterns, as you can mix and match how you position them.. 

And you can also play hearts, in this close up, you can see that I colored the line heart image by adding lines in different directions, and added the resin hearts on one side. 

However on the cards from this post, I used a solid heart stamp image and added the resin heart on the same section. This was made by design, since the patterned on the background had the little hearts and these would get lost in the card.  

So always play with the elements of your cards and change positions depending of what you have! 😉

Below you will see the three cards and the video tutorial to make each of them.

How to make 12 Easy Thank You Cards

Blog Hop KB

Want to learn how to make 12 Thank You Cards with just two sheets to Designer Series Paper a.k.a. DSP? If so, then keep reading as you will see how easy this is. 

Also please know that today I am participating in a blog hop which theme is Thank you cards. So if you are looking for card ideas, then make sure you visit all the participating blogs. I know you will enjoy watching all the site while getting lots of inspiration.   

I recently found a card maker over YouTube that shares templates to cut your DSP as well as a sketch. So when you follow her instructions you can get several cards at a time. 

I definitely was hocked immediately!

You know I love sketches and so having a sketch and a cutting template to play really call my eye.

I gave it a try and OMG, the results were amazing! I loved how easy this was to follow. And I loved that her cutting template also maximized the use of your sheet, so you get really low scraps. 

This channel is called Call Me Crafty Al – and Alicia shares a new template every month so you can work on your projects during the month. You can check here channel here. For my cards today I used the template she shared for March 2021.

Alicia from Call Me Crafty Al is tremendously generous, as you can download her templates for free as long as you are subscriber..  

Make 12 Thank you cards with two sheets of patterned paper

Thank You Cards Supplies 

For this template, you need to use two sheets of DSP that coordinate well together, that way you can mix them for the cards. So I decided to go with the Peony Garden DSP as I loved how well the colors coordinated.

Plus I knew I wanted to use a petal pink ribbon I had in my collection. 

The template also called for a scalloped circle, but in my case I wanted to use the circle die cut from the painted labels. This is one of my favorite circles as it decorates the cards really nice. 

And since I was using the Peony Garden Suite, I decided to use the Prized Peony for the cards, plus it also had a beautiful sentiment for the Thank You cards!

Color Combination 

From the Peony Garden paper pack, I selected the following color coordination.

I love using the designer series paper for color combinations as it makes it so easy to get color inspirations and ideas. Give it a try if you ever find yourself having trouble with color combinations. 

Card Details 

You can see on the pictures below, how the cards turned out in more detail 

I loved switching the patterns for the top and bottom, as it makes it look different, even though the are the same sketch. 

Also, note how I use the image from the front of my card, into the inside of the card. This is a very easy tip that you can use to make your card even more special. 

Finally, one other tip to share is the use of the gems.. Note that put them in the less busy pattern no mater where this was.. I did this as the would show up better rather than in the busier pattern. 

     Make 12 Thank you cards with two sheets of patterned paper   Make 12 Thank you cards with two sheets of patterned paper   inside of the thank you card

As far as the bow, I used a retired petal pink bow, however, you can use the metallic edge ribbon (silver or gold) and color it with the alcohol markers a.k.a. Stampin’ Blends in Petal Pink.

And above you can see the 12 cards I made when following the cutting template! I promise you this is super easy to follow, so give it a try! I know you will love to play with it.

And didn’t I told you that the tulips in this stamp set were amazing! you can see that all three of these cards are just gorgeous! (if I say so myself)

Learn how to make beautiful birthday cards using the Timeless Tulips Bundle from Stampin' Up!

For this cards I wanted to use the True Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) which is one of my favorites!  The only colors included in this paper pack are Black and White, making it very versatile as it goes really well with any color!

The Color Combination 

And talking about colors, because I used the True Love DSP, it was super easy to make a color combo this time! I only needed to pick a color for my flowers and instantly I got a gorgeous color combination for my projects today!

Now you might looking a brand new color, in the color Combo, and you are right! The Polish Pink is one of brand new In-Color family that we will have between 2021-2023 when the new catalog is released!! 

Stampin’ Up! released 5 brand new colors each year and these are available for two years, but that also means that with a brand new in-color family, we also get 5 colors retiring every year.. 

But for this post I want to introduce you to the brand new 2021-2023 In-Color family! 

Introducing the NEW 2021-2023 In Color Family

Below you can see the Brand NEW color we are going to have for the next two years!  Are these not beautiful?? 

This year I just loved every single one of them! 

I think that all of these colors are going to coordinate excellent with the other family colors we have! And of course you know I love Purple, so I was EXTREMELY happy to see a purple shade in this selection! 

I was so sad to see Purple Posy retire this year, but all is better now that I have Fresh Freesia! lol.. 

And the best part of getting new new colors, is that we get a new set of brand new products that coordinate with these beautiful colors!

Below you can see how the ink pads, the markers, cardstock and ribbon coordinate beautifully..  I honestly think this is the best feature from Stampin’ Up! products.. I love how well everything color coordinates.

Introducing the brand new 2021-2023In ColorYou cannot see it in the picture, but there are other products available in these new colors, Gems, patterned paper, vellum paper and a set of ombre paper bags.. I know you will love them all!

Sketches & Other Details 

But back to our beautiful Birthday handmade cards! (since I digressed)

If you can’t tell I am super excited with the new colors, that I couldn’t resist myself and play with at least one of these colors for my cards today! 

And as you know I love using sketches for my cards. I think that this is the easiest way to make cards and to find your creative mojo right away! 

One more thing to note is that for all the tulips I used an easy color technique, so make sure you watch the video tutorial in this post to learn how to add even more depth to your tulips, making them look even better!

Birthday Card #1

          sketches to play       Learn how to make beautiful birthday cards using the Timeless Tulips Bundle from Stampin' Up!

This first sketch has become one of my favorites and I am sure you might have noted that I have been using it more and more lately.. I just love how easy this sketch is for mixing and matching DSP.. So I have been enjoying using this sketch to use more and more of my DSP. 

Let’s be real, how much paper do you have??? If you are like me, you might have full boxes (😅 yes plural!) of patterned paper, and if that is the case, then using an sketch like this is the best to use as much as we can.. 

After all, you know you will keep buying more paper, the minute you see brand new paper being released from Stampin’ Up! next May 4th??? right?? lol 

Never in our lives would we say, I won’t buy more paper because I have enough!  So let’s use it! 

Plus when you use DSP in your cards, the whole process becomes so much easier, as you are letting the paper do the work for you! Boom! mic drop! 🤣

Birthday Card #2

                 Learn how to make beautiful birthday cards using the Timeless Tulips Bundle from Stampin' Up!

For this second card, I want to point out that I embossed the basic white cardstock in the background, as this would add so much mode texture and dimension, so consider doing this when you can plain cardstock as one of your layers.. you will see how your card looks even more professional or with a nice finished touch. 

Now did you notice that in all cards, I used a double bow? Oh my gosh! I have been liking this particular detail in cards I have been finding online! ooh and I just wanted to give it a try.. 

Don’t you think it looks even nicer? Now I know a bow is already challenging, and now two? i know.. but trust me, just have a bit of patience when you are making them.. you will see is not that bad or that hard. 

Birthday Card #3

                 Learn how to make beautiful birthday cards using the Timeless Tulips Bundle from Stampin' Up!

And for this card, I actually was inspired by a card my fellow demonstrator Antonette Bay from The Paper Papillon shared in Pinterest.. 

I was browsing thru Pinterest when I came across her card and fell in love with her layout.. She used the same stamp se, however her colors were different. If my memory doesn’t fail me, she used Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride and White.  

So the sketch I am sharing today is coming from that card.  

Shifting the background papers has also become somewhat popular in my cards, as of late.. I just love how making this small change makes so much of a difference in the looks of the layers.. 

The Video Tutorial

And as usual here is the video tutorial where I share how to make these cards step by step.

On this video I also share an easy technique for adding more depth to the Tulips when you stamp them, so make sure you check that out. I also provide two other color combinations using the brand new in-colors, so you can see more looks for this tulips. 

And you can see how easy it was doing the double bows for these cards. 

If you want to get any of the products I am sharing in the video, you can see below the full Supply List which will provide the links to my store where you can purchase all of these items!  I appreciate your support..

From my card you will see that I used the Flower for every Seasons designer series paper (DSP), as this one has so many flowers in their patters.. And I believe these butterflies would go perfectly with any of the designs in this pack! Don’t you agree?

After all we see butterflies in flower beds.. right?

Color Combination 

As far as the color combo for my card, I mainly used the colors in the DSP as inspiration.. You know I love to see at the designs in the DSP’s and pick from there a color combo from my cards. 

I love doing this and today was not the exception.. If you ever struggle with color combinations, give it a try, you will see how easy this goes. 

Because I am using Stampin’ Up! products, the task to mix and match becomes so easy, as all their products color coordinate beautifully. So once I have decided the color combo, then it is just matter to pull my cardstock, embellishments and ink in the same colors to have everything coordinate. 

Like I said, this becomes so much easy, when the products color coordinate.  Do you agree?

The Sketch 

sketches to play

As usual, I used an sketch to come up with my card, here is the sketch I used!

I changed the teal circles for the butterflies, which you can change for anything you want! This is the part where you should have fun and change it to whatever you want. You can use flowers, or any other shape your heart desires. 

This is why I love using sketches as they really provide me with a visual inspiration that I can change in so many ways.. Just give it a try! Challenge yourself to use one sketch to come up with 5 different cards. You will see how little by little your mind starts getting creative as you try to change things around..

If you give it a try, please let me know how you liked the experience and if you found it helpful..

I always love to hear what you think of sketches and if you found them helpful to create your cards. 

Other Card Details 

As mentioned I wanted to use the Flowers for Every Season DSP, but in all honesty, this paper pack is soon retiring, and so I was playing with the scraps I have left over in this pack. 

And while looking at the scraps I realized I had the Piece of DSP with the circle in the middle, so I just cut this piece to fit the card.  I also cut a piece of the flower pattern to fit underneath. and then I cut two other strips of the bumblebee DSP to add to the borders.. all of this was really just using scraps from this pack!

Do you save your scraps? I definitely do, but I also love to go over the scraps and see how to use them in cards, rather than cutting a brand new sheet.. 😁

And for the butterflies, I actually die cut them in Basic White cardstock, and then I used the wink of stella to add the shimmery look in all the butterflies. I then glue them with the glue dots just in the body section of them. And to finish them up, I added the gold glimmer enamel dots in its body. 

As far as the sentiment, you can see that the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle does not have sentiments, so you can use anything you already have. In my case I used the sentiment from the Prized Peony stamp set. 

Once I stamped the sentiment in a strip of Bumblebee cardstock, I punched out the ends with tailored tag punch to make the banner shape. This is by far my favorite punch ever! I think it makes it so easy to create banners in so many sizes!
