Stampin’ Up! Perfect Pairing Sneak Peek

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration exclusive Perfect Pairings stamp set and the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies to create my card to share today.  Both of these items will be available on January 5!

Perfect Pairings - Stamp With Amy K

The flowers on my card were inspired by a beautiful project that Carolyn Bennie created.  You can see it here.

My card design was inspired by Retrosketches #194.

The theme for my card was inspired by Global Design Project #GDP015.

I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Fluttering Embossing Folder.  I adhered a strip of Calypso Coral DSP from the Subtles DSP Stack across the panel with SNAIL, then adhered the panel to a Thick Whisper White card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Perfect Pairings 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the sentiment from the Perfect Pairings stamp set (Sale-a-bration item, available Jan 5) in Calypso Coral ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I punched the end with the Hexagon Punch, then adhered it to the card front with SNAIL.

Perfect Pairings 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I cut the flowers with the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies from Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight card stocks and I sponged the centers with Calypso Coral ink.  I added a little Soft Suede ink to the very center of the larger flower die cuts, then adhered the flowers together and to the card front with Glue Dots.

Perfect Pairings 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the leaf images from the Botanical Blooms photopolymer stamp set (available Jan 5) in Mossy Meadow ink on a panel of Mossy Meadow card stock, cut them out with the matching Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and adhered them to the card front with Glue Dots.

Perfect Pairings 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the flower images from the Botanical Blooms stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.

  1. Very nice, Amy…and that from someone who doesn’t even like orange, unless, of course, there is a Bronco associated with it. 😃

  2. Absolutely gorgeous card today Amy! It really brightened my day – I just know you did that for me, lol 😛 I love all the cheerful colors! Your flowers came out perfect for the Retro sketch and right on for the GDP sketch. Nicely done 🙂

  3. Wow, Amy, I saw this on SCS and just had to pop over and see what you used. What a gorgeous floral array you’ve made! I love it! Hugs!

  4. Love your card Amy. When I’m on my iPad there is no where to leave a comment but wanted to let you know how much I look forward to your posts. Great share today.

  5. Hi, Amy — I just have to say this is the most beautiful treatment of this stamp set I have yet to see!! Just gorgeous. As a fellow demonstrator, I so enjoy visiting your blog! Happy Holidays!

  6. I’ve been so busy that I’ve fallen behind in visiting your blog. This card is just beautiful. I have a similar flower die from a different manufacturer but it never looks this good!

  7. Once again your project has grabbed my attention! I love this flower die and it is wonderful to see Carloyn’s inspired flowers on a card front. Your colour choice is lovely Amy. Thanks for playing at Global Design Project with us again!

  8. Insanely gorgeous, Amy! Love these colors and showcase of this new die. You are good…so very good. Thank you so much for playing along with this week’s Celebrate Theme Challenge for the Global Design Project.
