  • How much do you love this color combination of Daffodil Delight and Berry Burst?! This is so fresh and hip!
  • This card came together so quickly by inking once and then stamping each lemon twice to get the different shades of Daffodil Delight.
  • The sentiment is stamped in Berry Burst and cropped using the Triple Banner Punch. This punch is a workshorse in my studio, it gets used every day!
  • The Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Double Stitched Ribbon and Berry Burst 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon make a bright and cheery flag that was easily stapled on

  • okay, confession time…..pretty sure I created limes and not lemons which makes the sentiment a little off LOL!! But the card is so super cute!
  • I stamped one of the images in Emerald Envy and left it whole. The second image was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and cut in half, isn’t is adorable?!
  • But the star of this show is the Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon. It is just so spectacular. Definitely one of those items that will make you happy just having it in your work space 🙂

  • The lemon and orange were stamped with Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie and then cropped out with the Layering Circle Framelits.
  • The leaves and sentiments were stamped in Lemon Lime Twist. The sentiments were cropped out using the Layering Circle Framelits and I cropped the leaves using the Lemon Builder Punch
  • A Lace Doily, Gold Metallic Thread and the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder add great finishing touches to the card

  • I stamped these lemons in Daffodil Delight on Daffodil Delight Cardstock and the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. It gives a great texture to the image. All of the images were cropped out using the Lemon Bulider Punch
  • A layer of Watercolor Paper makes for a dreamy background. I used my Aquapainter, Daffodil Delight ink and Lemon Lime Twist ink.
  • A quick smattering of Iridescent Sequins, attached with my Fine Tipped Glue Pen adds a festive sparkle.

  • Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate are such a great color combination!
  • I stamped the slice in Calypso Coral repeatedly on Whisper White and layered it onto a square of Smoky Slate.
  • The sentiment is stamped in Smoky Slate and cropped using the Triple Banner Punch
  • A knot of Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon and Calypso Coral Edged Ribbon is a quick way to add fun to the card

The Designer Series Paper in the 2017-2018 Stampin’Up! is sooooo good! This Delightful Daisy paper is so beautiful, it honestly can be the focal point of your cards with just a sentiment and embellishment to complete the look. It was so much fun making these 5 samples for you today!

Stampin'Up! Delightful Daisy stamp set, Lovely Inside and Out stamp set, 2017-2018 Stampin'Up! Catalog,

This is a classic layout that features 2 of the patterns, can you even stand how fabulous those daisies are?! the sentiment is stamped in Daffodil Delight and is from the Lovely Inside and Out stamp set.

Did you know that on the back of each Designer Series Paper package Stampin’Up! lists all the colors in the paper. I love this and always use it as a guide when grabbing my inks and cardstock

This pattern is so sweet and I continued that theme with the feminine images and punch. The Lable Me Pretty bundle includes both the stamp set and coordinating punch, which means when you purchase them together you save 10%. They are available June 1st with the code 145305

Calypso Coral is such a happy color! I love it paired with pinks and yellows, but look how nice it plays with our new Tranquil Tide. And this new ribbon that comes in all of the in colors is so great to work with. A great weight and it ties superbly!

Stampin'Up! Delightful Daisy designer series paper, Happy Birthday thinlit, papercrafting, DIY, hand stamped

If this Happy Birthday thinlit isn’t the top of you must buy list I am not sure we can be friends #kiddingithink

It pops out like a dream with a quick run thru the Big Shot and I like to use my Fine Tipped Glue Pen to adhere it easily.

The Delightful Daisy designer series paper and NEW Glimmer Dots help pull this card in a jiffy.

5 Way Friday: Stampin’Up! Birthday Delivery bundle

Join us for a Stampin'Up! 5 Way Friday: inspiration for all your papercrafting

5 Way Friday is a fan favorite and this week I am so excited to share with your 5 ah-mazing samples using the Stampin’Up! Birthday Delivery Bundle. This bundle is unlike anything Stampin’Up! has ever offered and is going to be a HUGE seller!

So let’s get down to the nitty gritty of why this new bundle is so awesome! The bundle is a stamp set with images and sentiments, the Framelits fit around those images AND……wait for it……the Framelits also crop out images from the coordinating designer series paper!! #saywhat

I have focused most of my samples on this new coordination because it is just so stinkin cool!

Stampin'Up! Birthday Delivery bundle, birthday delivery stamp set, birthday memoery designer series paper, birthday friends framelits dies, happy birthday, papercrafting, DIY

The Real Red and Crumb Cake card above features the poodle from this bundle. No fussy cutting needed, I just used my Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, the Framelits and Designer Series Paper #love. The Real Red patterned paper below is from the Birthday memories Designer Series Paper as well.

Stampin'Up! Birthday Delivery bundle, birthday delivery stamp set, birthday memoery designer series paper, birthday friends framelits dies, happy birthday, papercrafting, DIY

OMG this little girl is a flash back! Isn’t she darling! Again, super simple with the Framelits to crop her out. I used Soft Sky and Powder Pink (one of the new in colors) with a couple of Embossing Folders and added a sentiment from the same Birthday Delivery stamp set and our new Powder Pink ribbon.

Stampin'Up! Birthday Delivery bundle, birthday delivery stamp set, birthday memoery designer series paper, birthday friends framelits dies, happy birthday, papercrafting, DIY

This guy! Both the fox and the banner were cropped out using the Designer Series Paper and coordinating Framelits. The sentiment is stamped in Pacific Point. I layered him on an Oval to help him stand out, against the background. A little Old Olive ink below and Soft Sky above gives the look of a meadow behind him. And let’s talk about those stripes! #delish. The Old Olive ribbon helps pull all those elements together

Stampin'Up! Birthday Delivery bundle, birthday delivery stamp set, birthday memoery designer series paper, birthday friends framelits dies, happy birthday, papercrafting, DIY

I didn’t use the Designer Series Paper for this one as I had a clean and simple design in mind to showcase this sweet little nosegay. I stamped it 3x in Berry Burst (a new in color) and cropped it out using the coordinating Framelits. A little wash of Powder Pink was created using my Aquapainter and Powder Pink refill. The sentiment is created using 2 of the stamps from the Birthday Delivery stamp set and were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. A wrap and bow of Basic Black Baker’s Twine pull it together.

Stampin'Up! Birthday Delivery bundle, birthday delivery stamp set, birthday memoery designer series paper, birthday friends framelits dies, happy birthday, papercrafting, DIY

Yep, the cake is from the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper and was cropped out using the Birthday Friends framelits….can we just agree how cool this is?! lots of layers of Whisper White, Real Red and Old Olive….popped up with loads of dimensionals really amp up the wow on this card. A smattering of Glimmer Dots adds to the festive feel. The sentiment is also from the Birthday Delivery stamp set and cropped using the Triple Banner Punch.

5 Way Friday is a fan favorite and this week I am so excited to share with your 5 ah-mazing samples using the Stampin’Up! Touches of Texture stamp set. This stamp set has so many versatile images, which is super exciting to me, and I know you are going to love these different looks.

Stampin'Up! Touches of Texture stamp set, cardmaking, DIY, papercrafting, rubber stamping #lisapretto, #inkbigacademystamps

Whisper White, Crumb Cake, and Calypso Coral is a super hip color combo. The greeting is a little sneak peek from the Wood Words stamp set and the Burlap ribbon finishes the shabby chic feel of this card.

Stampin'Up! Touches of Texture stamp set, cardmaking, DIY, papercrafting, rubber stamping #lisapretto, #inkbigacademystamps

I had to use Pacific Point so that I could use this new ribbon again! I can’t wait to get it in all the colors!! Daffodil Delight and Whisper White create a cheery and crisp card.

Stampin'Up! Touches of Texture stamp set, cardmaking, DIY, papercrafting, rubber stamping #lisapretto, #inkbigacademystamps

Shimmery White Cardstock is a must for this card. I stamped the floral images in Dapper Denim and Tranquil Tide 9one of our new 2017-2019 In Colors) and then used our Stampin’Up! Spritzer to create a soft watercolor background. The ribbon is Tranquil Tide and is a dream to work with!

Stampin'Up! Touches of Texture stamp set, cardmaking, DIY, papercrafting, rubber stamping #lisapretto, #inkbigacademystamps

The Touches of Texture stamp set has great images to create collage style cards. I used 2 of our 2017-2019 In colors, Powder Pink and Berry Burst, for a sweet card. The greeting, colors, and ribbon are all sneak peeks from the new catty that debuts June 1….and those pearls are seriously sweet!

Stampin'Up! Touches of Texture stamp set, cardmaking, DIY, papercrafting, rubber stamping #lisapretto, #inkbigacademystamps

Basic Black, Whisper White and Powder Pink work together beautifully on this card. Our Stampin’Up! Markers make quick work of adding a little color to the to the flowers and leaves. The Linen Thread is a great addition that keeps this card from being too sweet.

I have been busy mailing out the NEW 2017-2019 Stampin’Up! catalog this week and I would love to pop one in the mail to you! Just email me at lisa@inkbigacademy.com with your snail mail address!
