Welcome to the Team Stamp It Patriotic Summer Blog Hop
In these ever changing times, I wanted to display the versatility of The Ornate Thanks Bundle applying a patriotic color scheme. You can find The Ornate Thanks Bundle along with all the supplies in today’s showcased card in my online store.
Starting first with a piece of Stampin’ Up!’s Whisper White cut at 4 3/4″ x 5 1/4″. I taped a scrap piece of paper with Washi tape and began applying Pacific Point Blue with a sponge dauber. Starting lightly from the bottom working outward and upward with my Pacific Point Blue. I love the brightness of this blue. (I have to admit I intended for my color to be slightly lighter but I can be heavy handed sometimes) Then I began working downward and still outward using Real Red with a sponge dauber as well.
Next was die cutting a floral edge using a Ornate Border dies. Because the die cut can be delicate, I sometimes use a piece of Washi tape to hold my intricate dies in place. Once I peel the Washi tap off, it can be more forgiving and delicate, not tearing your paper.
As a result of building this card, I took photos to showcase the different steps and maybe the level of stamping you feel comfortable with. Honestly, even the beginner can create this fabulous card. For instance, my #simplestamping image blossomed into an awesome card for even the avid stamper.
Added to Basic Gray Cardstock cut 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”
Stamping the sentiment using So Grateful and for all you do
Next I have added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the center of all flowers
Taking it up I added the Metallic-Edge Ribbon in Silver
Because my ribbon frayed in the above image, it’s simply upgraded with a faux bow to cover

Hello and thank you for joining me today. it’s the perfect time to think about April showers bring May flowers. Just in time for Mother’s Day. I have cute coordinations today using the Timeless Tulips bundle. This really is a must have versatile bundle. You can use this bundle to say hello, happy birthday, I’m sorry and of course to show your appreciation for mom.
First up is the cupcake topper. I really wish the cupcakes would have lasted to be in this post. Simply stamp three tulips in your color choice. Using the tulip punch, punch the 3 tulips out. You will want to fold them in half or line up on your score board so the center tip of the tulip lines up with 1/2” mark for a perfect fold. Using your go to adhesive, you will adhere them similar to as if they were joining hands. Slide a toothpick through the center bottom. You could create a bouquet following same process with wooden skewers.
Next is my favorite sweet treat. The mini tulip candy box or basket. Thanks to Twila Davis for sharing her creation, such a quick treat. Cut a piece of your favorite Green cardstock at 2 3/4” x 2 3/4”. Score at 3/4” on all sides. Cut to intersecting lines as shown. (You are not experiencing any visual side effects as a result of social distancing. This is not green cardstock. I forgot to take my photos and resorted to stock photos)
Putting adhesive on your four outer squares, fold in top middle first. Secure by placing first flap on the inside of the middle and press together. Repeat with second flap. Turn and rotate basket and repeat
You will stamp and punch for tulips to adhere to each side of your basket. You will see I then placed two wrapped nuggets in the basket. Makes a great place setting treat.
Last but not least is card for mom/aunt/grandma or that special lady. Using a whisper white vertical card base, layered with black. I sponged Lovely Lipstick on the upper portion and Granny Green on bottom. Stamping my tulips, stems and leaves in same colors. Using my spritzer added a few water droplets.
Using a landscape card base, repeated using Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green.
Adding the sentiment with Versa Mark and silver embossing powder.

There were so many items that I have enjoyed from this first release of Sale-a-bration. I hope you are enjoying them too. I like the fact these particular items available work together creating a “set”.
1) The Lily Pad Dies 2) Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and 3) Lily Impressions DSP (Designer Series Paper). We had so much fun making these calendars in class and you can too. You can use any of Stampin’ Up’s coordinating cardstock colors with the Lily Impressions DSP. Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo, Garden Green, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, Lovely Lipstick, Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, So Saffron
For this calendar we are using Blackberry Bliss cardstock cut 4 1/4″ X 11″. You will the score at 4 1/4“, 8 1/2“, 9 1/2” and 10 1/2” for the base. You will then us another Blackberry Bliss Cardstock 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″. For the box to hold your sticky notes. Create your box by scoring 5 1/2″ side at 2 1/2″ and 3″. Then score 4 1/4″ side at 1/2″ and 3 3/4″. I did not have the dies while making this project. It was a lesson learned and I made sure my next order is $100 qualifying minimum to ensure I could order the dies.
The three lily Pad products you want to get are are all Sale-A-Bration choices. Available at $100 for the Lily Pad dies and $50 for the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and Lily Impressions DSP.
