Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern

Well, hello again! Today’s card is a sympathy card is a sympathy card made with the fabulous Forever Fern Bundle, the Forever Gold Laser-
Cut Specialty DSP and Detailed Bands Dies
– and a few other products as well. Let’s take a look…

Forever Fern Bundle – #1

The Forever Flourish Dies that are part of this bundle and the Forever Greenery DSP are what makes this card pop. Let’s break it down to the step by step…

  • The card base is Shaded Spruce card stock 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Layer a panel of Soft Sea Foam card stock 2 x 5 1/2 with liquid glue
  • Add a panel of Forever Greenery DSP 1 3/4 x 5 1/2 over the Soft Sea Foam with liquid glue.
  • Die cut a ‘flourish’ using Whisper White card stock and the Forever Flourish Dies.
  • Pull out a couple of the fantastic gold pieces in the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty DSP
  • Die cut a banner from Just Jade card stock using the Detailed Bands Dies.
  • Stamp your sentiment: mine is from the Prized Peony stamp set, on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and die cut with another of the Detailed Bands Dies.
  • Layer the sentiment onto the Just Jade banner with liquid glue. Put dimensionals on the back and set aside to ‘work’ your other elements. Once you have determined how you want the card to look, adhere them to the card front as shown.
  • Add Gilded Gems to enhance the focus of the sentiment and your card front is complete!

For the inside…

Forever Fern card inside – #2
  • Adhere a panel (4 x 5 1/4) of Just Jade card stock to the inside of the card base.
  • On a panel of Whisper White card stock, stamp your sentiment in Just Jade ink. Again I stayed with using the Prized Peony stamp set.
  • Stamp one of the leaf flourishes in stamped off TWICE Just Jade ink – from the Forever Fern stamp set.
  • Adhere this Whisper White panel with liquid glue to the card inside – Voila! the card is complete :O)

For the envelope…

Forever Fern Bundle – #3
  • Stamp the front of the envelope using the same leaf stamp used on the inside of the card, stamping off at least twice.
  • Cover the envelope flap with panels of Forever Greenery DSP and trim to fit. Your card is now done, done, done!

Stampin’ Up Beautiful Autumn Bundle – yet again!

Today’s card is another focus of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and the Beautiful Autumn Bundle. I can’t seem to get enough of these two! Here the card…

Beautiful Autumn Bundle again – #1

Isn’t this paper stunning? First of all, those little leaves are punched out of one of the Specialty papers in this pack – using what else? the Autumn Punch Pack! The background leaf – or cream colored one is from the Love of Leaves Bundle and is a leftover from a card a couple of days ago :O) I’m getting ahead of myself again. Let’s break down the details of the how…

  • Punch out several leavers & acorns from one of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP – using the Autumn Punch Pack. I wanted to make a wreath again and decided to use the Gold Hoop Embellishment as my base, but felt the leaves needed something else to ‘sit’ on. Since I had this leaf already lying on my table (Love of Leaves Bundle), that became the real foundation.
  • Layer leaves on a foundation – the leaf as mentioned above. Adhere each with liquid glue, curling the leaves just a bit before attaching. Add an acorn or two as well.
  • Tie a bow using the wonderful Terracotta Tile from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack. Adhere with a glue dot.
  • With a length of the Copper from the Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, add this adorable Acorn Trinket and tie directly to the Gold Hoop Elmbellishment forming a knot.
  • Attach the wreath with glue dots to a 3″ square of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP.
  • Adhere the DSP panel to a nearly 3 1/4″ square of Copper from the Brushed Metallic Papers – using Stampin Plus
  • Adhere these two papers to a 3 1/2″ square of Very Vanilla card stock with dimensionals.
  • Cut another panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere to the card base of Thick Very Vanilla 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 – and your card front is complete!
  • For the inside…
Beautiful Autumn Bundle again – #2

I wanted to use stamps from this Beautiful Autumn stamp set to bring in the colors of the card front – and they were stamped on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock 4 x 5 1/4. Inks…I used Soft Suede ink for the outline of the oak leaf, full strength. I used Crumb Cake ink for the filler of this leaf; Cajun Craze ink for the maple leaf, stamped off twice for the filler; and Mint Macaron ink for the larger leaf. In the lower right corner, I stamped very softly, stamping off until there was only a bit of ink on the stamp. The sentiment used is from Beautiful Autumn stamp set as well – stamped in full strength Soft Suede ink. This panel was adhered with liquid glue directly to the card case – and voila!

For the envelope…

Beautiful Autumn Bundle again – #3

Adhere the same DSP as the large panel on the card front from the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to a Very Vanilla envelope. Adhere a punched acorn with liquid glue – and yep – use that cute acorn punch from the Autumn Punch Pack!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Bundle

Goode morning! It’s early here and still very dark. I really like this time of day – a new day opening with all kinds of opportunities. My first … is to give thanks for this day and all that I have been given; I am so richly blessed. In that spirit, I share with you this monochromatic elegant card.

Beautiful Autumn Bundle – #1

I’ve shared just a corner of the card cuz I kinda like the ‘artsiness’ of it :O)Here are the details…

  • Begin with a card base of Thick Very Vanilla 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2
  • Punch the fall ‘elements’ with the Autumn Punch Pack and Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP. I used the same paper as in yesterdays post – with the golds and coppers. I punched two gold leaves and one copper acorn.
  • Mount these with dimensional on a Very Vanilla square die cut with the smallest Rectangle Stitched Dies.
  • Mount this with liquid glue onto a panel of the Brushed Metallic card stock die cut with the Layering Squares Dies using the scallop edge. I die cut two of the gold and one of the copper to match the punched elements. Put dimensionals only on the top & bottom of these squares and and set aside.
  • Cut a panel of Very Vanilla cs 4 x 5 1/4 and wrap with ribbon, securing in back with Seal Plus. The ribbons I used were the copper from Basketweave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack and the two lengths of 1/16″ Gold Cord from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack. Secure the copper ribbon with glue dots where they will be covered by the squares.
  • Adhere the squares, adhering the center squarer first then the other two. This gets them centered and equally spaced :O)
Beautiful Autumn Bundle – #2
  • Stamp the sentiment using the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Soft Suede ink on a strip of Very Vanilla cs 1/2 x 4 and trim ends.
  • adhere the sentiment with dimensionals and place appropriately; your card front is complete!

The inside…

Beautiful Autumn Bundle, inside – #3
  • I had a 1/2 x 4 strip of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP handy and adhered it to a panel of Very Vanilla cs 4 x 5 1/4. I also had an extra little punched acorn and adhered it with liquid glue as well – and called it done.
  • Adhere to the card inside with liquid glue.

The envelope…

Beautiful Autumn Bundle – #4
  • Cover the envelope flap with a strip of the Gilded autumn Specialty DSP using liquid glue and trim to fit. My strip was 2 1/4 x 6.
  • Punch another leaf using the Autumn Punch Pack and adhere with liquid glue to a 1″ circle of Soft Suede cs. Adhere to the card front with liquid glue and done, done, done.

Beautiful, right? I really, really like this. Products for this card are listed below.

Stampin’ Up! Stitched Leaves Dies & Sympathy

Hello Again – nice to be with you. We have a light rain this morning and I am supposed to have some folks come for a class at 10 AM – OUTSIDE! I think we’ll wait to see what it does… the radar isn’t showing anything 😳

OK – today’s card is a sympathy card and mailed already. Sympathy cards are like that, they need to go right away. I love the simplicity of this card and have done something like it before, but sometimes when it’s a good layout – why not?

Stitched Leaves Dies & Sympathy – #1

The Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP is part of the showstopper here, but the leaf… wow – it’s a stunner. I really like how it has the stitching inside showing leaf detail, and behind it is another but die cut from Brushed Metallic in Copper. Behind that is a Very Vanilla panel die cut using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

Let’s go back a little bit as I kinda got ahead of myself.

  • Begin with a Thick Very Vanilla card base 4 1/4 x 11
  • Die cut copper leaf from the center of a panel of Brushed Metallic card stock 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. It’s going to be covered by the DSP and no one will ever know!
  • Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP ( 3 7/8 x 5 1/8) is layered onto the Brushed Metallic panel with liquid glue.
  • Adhere these directly to the card base with liquid glue.
  • Die cut the rectangle using Stitched Rectangle Dies and Very Vanilla card stock. Adhere to the card front with liquid glue, centering.
  • Die cut a leaf using the Stitched Leaves Dies from Very Vanilla cs (3 3/4 square of VV will do it). Adhere the two leaves together with Stampin Seal, keeping the ends of the leaves loose. Adhere to the rectangle with liquid glue.
  • Add a bow using the 1/16″ Gold cord from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack.
  • Front sentiment: this comes from Field of Flowers stamp set and was stamped in Soft Suede ink – having stamped off at least once. The sentiment banner is a Very Vanilla strip 1/2″ x however long the sentiment :O) Adhere with dimesnionals.

The inside…

Love of Leaves & Peaceful Moments stamp sets
  • Stamp the sentiment using the Peaceful Moments stamp set and Soft Suede ink onto a Very Vanilla panel 4 x 5 1/4. Stamp full strength!
  • Stamp the leaf from the Love of Leaves stamp set and Soft Suede ink, stamping off at least twice.
  • Adhere directly to the inside of the card and Voila! Your card is complete.

For the envelope…

Love of Leaves & Gilded Autumn – #3
  • Stamp the leaf on the front of the Very Vanilla envelope with Soft Suede ink, stamping off 2-3 times.
  • Cut a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP 2 1/4 x 6, adhere with liquid glue to the flap and trim to fit. Done.

This makes such an elegant yet simple card, it would be easy to make several just like it using various patterns of this DSP – and they would all look different due to the DSP or ribbons used. And of course the sentiment could be changed to happy birthday or thinking of you or congratulations.

I’ve already given you the card cuts, and the product list is below.

SU! So Much Happy

Hello All! Today’s card is so bright and cheerful, it’s b ound to make the receiver happy about their birthday. Let’s take a look…

So Much Happy – #1

It begins with Artistry Blooms DSP and the Happy Dies. I especially like using this on an angle; then stamp your sentiment. Here I used Night of Navy ink, but because of the balloon colors – Gorgeous Grape ink would have worked just as well. I then stamped and die cut the balloons: Gorgeous Grape ink, Coastal Cabana ink, and the far right is Pacific Point ink. I adhered Linen Thread with dimensionals and placed the balloons accordingly. I definitely wanted one loose! I used just a dot of liquid glue to hold two of the Linen Threads together.

Adhere this completed DSP to a panel of Whisper White cs, then again to another panel – this time Coastal Cabana cs. Place dimensionals on the back of the Coastal Cabana and adhere to a Thick Whisper White card base. And the card front is done!

For the inside…

So Much Happy, inside – #2

I carried out the colors from the front of the card and stamped three small balloons from the So Much Happy stamp set on a panel of Whisper White cs: Coastal Cabana ink, then Pacific Point ink, then Gorgeous Grape ink. I stamped the balloon tails in Gorgeous Grape ink, then the tiny bows in Coastal Cabana ink. Adhere the Whisper White panel to Coastal Cabana cs with liquid glue, then into the card base and voila, the card is complete!

For the envelope…

So Much Happy bundle – #3

Adhere a panel of Artistry Blooms DSP to the envelope flap. Stamp the stars in the coordinating colors used on the card: Coastal Cabana ink, Gorgeous Grape ink and Pacific Point ink.

Love how this turned out! I would like to see what you do with this bundle – so please share :O)

Products for today’s card may be found below… card cuts are at the end of this post.

Card cuts:

  • Whisper White Thick – 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Coastal Cabana cs – 4 x 5 1/4 (cut 2)

SU! Freezin’ Friends Dies & Curvy Stamps

Hello there… it’s Sunday and going to be a beautiful fall day. We have had rain lately and it will be nice to have the sunshine. Perhaps we can do something outside. For my card today, I had someone specifically in mind – and this person needs a bit of congratulations.

Freezin’ Friends Dies & Curvy Stamps – #1

One of the things I like about SU! products is how items can coordinate with one another. The big box stores don’t do that – they carry products from several different manufacturers and colors do not work well together. In this case, we have Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP, the stitched curvy die from Freezin’ Friends Dies, the new Curvy Christmas stamp set (star stamp) and the sentiment from Quite Curvy stamp set. Then I added this fun large star from Stitched Stars Dies. Love love!

The how to…

  • Begin with a panel of Whisper White and die cut the lower curve with the Freezin’ Friends die. You could use a strip about 2 1/4 x 5.
  • I placed this strip in my Stamparatus and stamped the stars ‘banner’ with Night of Navy ink and the Curvy Christmas stamp set. This is a brand new stamp set that will be available to customers beginning Nov 3-Jan 3.
  • With that same Whisper Whiter panel in my Stamparatus, I stamped the sentiment in Crushed Curry ink using the Quite Curvy stamp set. This stamp set will also be available Nov 3 (along with coordinating dies) but it will be in the next catalogue :O)
  • With that panel complete i adhered it to a panel of DSP – the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP (3 3/4 x 5)
  • Then I die cut another stitched curvy from Whisper White. At it’s deepest point this strip is 1 1/4″ so start with a panel probably 1 1/2 x 5. Adhere this to the top of the DSP panel with liquid glue.
  • I then die cut two stars, one from Crushed Curry card stock and the smaller more intricate from Night of Navy card stock and adhered them together with liquid glue. This got dimensionals and was adhered to the card front.
  • I took this nearly completed panel and adhered it to Crushed Curry card stock – 3 1/4 x 5 1/4 – yep, with liquid glue.
  • My final step was to put a Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the center of the star – it’s special after all! Then I added several Star Designer Elements. They are copper and bring out the copper stars in the DSP :O)
  • I put the Crushed Curry panel on dimensionals and adhered it to a Night of Navy card base (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2). The front really is done…

For the inside…

Freezin’ Fun & Curvy card – #2

I took a panel of Crushed Curry card stock and adhered it to the card base (4 x 5 1/4), then adhered a Whisper White panel (3 3/4 x 5) to this. Lastly I added a strip of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP. Card is complete!

For the envelope – easy peasy… I added a strip of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP to the envelope flap and that was it. Voila!

SU! & Freezin’ Fun!

Helloooo! Today’s card is all about winter: skiing, snowballs and snowflakes. Are YOU ready for winter in your part of the world? For here, it’s coming… 40 degrees this morning…. but still a ways off. The trees still have too many leaves on them. πŸ‚ 🍁 πŸƒ

Here’s the card…

Freezin’ Fun – #1

Isn’t this fun? This is a new bundle set for me – from my upline, called Freezin’ Fun. Thank you Mary Deatherage! And the curvy die in the bundle (Freezin’ Friends Dies) has this marvelous stitched edge to it. And of course, you can create hills for downhill skiing or sledding :O) This bunny has a delightful grin on his face, doesn’t he? So… the how to…

I took a panel of Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4 and die cut it with the stitched curvy die from the Freezin’ Friends Dies. You would not necessarily have to begin with this size, cuz you can see I only used a portion of it. The bottom section is actually 1 7/8 at its height. I then took a panel of Seaside Spray card stock (and it is 2 7/8 at its height & 5 1/4 width) and die cut it with the same die. I adhered these two together with liquid glue on a panel of Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4. Then I stamped the sentiment (Wheee!) in the same Saddle Brown and the snowflakes from the Freezin’ Fun stamp set in Seaside Spray ink.

I used Stazon ink in Saddle Brown to stamp the bunny on skiis and colored him with Stampin Blends: Just Jade, Dk Petal Pink and Lt Smokey Slate. Again, this bunny is from Freezin’ Fun stamp set. I die cut him with the Freezin’ Friends Dies, mounted him on dimensionals then onto the card.

I stamped the large tree in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored it in Just Jade Stampin Blends. I highlighted the snow on the tree with Wink of Stella. I die cut the tree, again with the Freezin Friends Dies, mounted it on dimensionals and added it to the card front.

Next I stamped the snowballs in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and highlighted them with Wink of Stella. It really shows in person! Finally the sentiment… stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a panel of Whisper White and die cut with the Rectangle Stitched Dies, mounted it on dimesnionals and onto the card front. The last step was adding the Adhesive-Backed Snowflakes – love, love, love these!

This panel was adhered to the card front with liquid glue and the front was done.

Freeain’ Fun – #2

The inside was easy peasy… I added a strip of Snowflake Splendor Specialty DSP near the bottom them stamped the sentiment in Seaside Spray ink. Lastly I added three more sweet Adhesive-Backed Snowflakes – and the card was complete.

Freezin’ Fun – #3

The final step was the envelope… I stamped the tree from Freezin’ Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored it with Just Jade Stampin Blends and Wink of Stella on the snow. And that’s it! I had a lot of fun with this bundle.

SU! Curvy Christmas & Curvy Dies Mix It Up!

Hello again… excited to share the new stamp sets & dies available for customers Nov 3… So pretty and so much can be done with the Curvy Dies. I just recently got these in the mail (yep! Demonstrators have the ability to preorder certain items and this is one of them). Curvy Christmas stamp set will only be available until Jan 3, 2021, while the Curvy Dies and it’s coordinating stamp set will be in the new Annual Catalog. Pretty cool, huh?

And here’s the card I made for today – my first with this set.

Curvy Christmas & Curvy Dies – #1

Don’t you love that delicate curve and the little holes – so feminine – can’t wait to play some more…

The how to:

  • Whisper white card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. On the long side, place the Curvy Die approximately in the center. This will create two “halves”, one with the holes and one without.
  • On the panel with the holes, wipe with the Embossing Buddy, stamp with the curvy star stamp in the Curvy Christmas stamp set with Versamark ink. Sprinkle with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
  • With the Stitched Stars Dies, die cut a small star out of Silver Foil. Adhere with a dab of liquid glue.
  • With the Whisper White panel that has the curvy cut, stamp the sentiment, matching it with the curve of the cut, with Cherry Cobbler ink. The sentiment is part of the Curvy Christmas stamp set.
  • Create the card base… Whisper White card stock for the card base – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2: on the long side, fold the two sides toward the center to meet and burnish. (each side will be 2 1/8″)
  • Cut a 3/4 x 5 1/2 strip from the coordinating Classic Christmas 6×6 DSP and adhere with liquid glue to each of the folded sides, on the cut edge.
  • Adhere the curvy panels to the card front with liquid glue. Yes, the DSP is supposed to show through!
Curvy C’mas with Curvy Dies – #2

For the inside…

In The Pines + Curvy Christmas – #3

Don’t you love these fonts?!

  • Cut a panel of Whisper White cs 4 1/4 x 5 1/4
  • Using the In The Pines stamp set, stamp the tree outline in Shaded Spruce ink
  • Stamp the tree ‘fill in’ for the tree from the same stamp set + the sentiment from Curvy Christmas stamp set in Garden Green ink. I used my Stamparatus for this to get the stamp right where I wanted it.
  • Adhere the panel to the inside of the card and voila – the card is done.

For the envelope…

Curvy Christmas + Curvy Dies + Classic Christmas 6×6 DSP – #4

Aren’t these trees wonderful? A touch of whimsy to the envelope front. Of course the tree stamp is from Curvy Christmas stamp set, stamped in Garden Green ink. The DSP on the flap is the Classic Christmas 6×6 DSP. And the whole thing is complete – love, love…

SU! Wreath Builder Dies/ Poinsettia Dies work together

Hello again! Did you enjoy the hop yesterday? There were some gorgeous cards in the lineup. I’m so pleased to be able to participate in the hop. Today’s card is… back to Christmas. And what ARE you doing about Christmas this year? Not sure family is going to be able to come here – health compromised in some cases… still thinking through Thanksgiving actually… ok – back to my card :O)

Wreath Builder Dies – #1

Do you recognize the paper in the background? Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP!!! Yep – a fav of mine that paper. And the card base is… drum roll here… Wonder of the Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes. I turned it inside out so the front is actually the inside. Clever, eh? Let’s get to the ‘how to” so you can make one of these beauties.

  • Using the Rectangle Stitched Dies, die cut one in Cherry Cobbler card stock and one out of the Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP. I used the 2nd & 3rd largest dies for this. Adhere the two papers together with liquid glue.
  • Using the Wreath Builder Dies, die cut three (3) wreaths out of Whisper White. Adhere together with liquid glue, overlapping the leaves.
  • Using the Poinsettia Dies, die cut four small poinsettia out of the Red Velvet Paper. (I haven’t used this paper nearly enough!!! just sayin’ – you may see more of it in the near future.) Adhere two together with glue dots creating two poinsettia. Add Metallic Pearls to the centers of each – in gold. Adhere one to the wreath with a glue dot, then the bow with a glue dot, then the other poinsettia. with a glue dot. The bow is made using the All the Trimmings Ribbon Combo Pack. The protocol is generally to work in odd numbers, but I didn’t want to overwhelm the wreath with another poinsettia. Adding the bow, kept to the general rule of using odd numbers.
  • Adhere the completed wreath with liquid glue to the two stitched rectangle pieces. I curled the leaves of the wreath just a bit to give it some dimension. I also curled the poinsettia petals a bit – just with my fingers.
  • Adhere the stitched rectangles/ wreath to the card with liquid glue – again the card base is Wonder of the Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes turned inside out.
  • For the banner…Using Cherry Cobbler ink, stamp the sentiment on Whisper White cs with the Poinsettia Petals stamp set. Make points to the strip with paper snips. I curled the banner with a bone folder so the ends come up and the center raises. I put two dimensionals in the center, one on top of the other and used liquid glue near where the ends curl up again so create this effect. What do you think? Do you like the banner curled like that?

The inside…

Wonder of the Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes – inside

When you receive this pack – the intention is for this scrolly part to be the outside of the card – and I didn’t want to cover up this beautify, but use it. The light has reflected on that one section of the scroll, making it look rather pink – but it isn’t! It’s a uniform deep red and has a metallic look to it – that’s why the reflection.

I stamped the sentiment, again using the Poinsettia Petals stamp set and Cherry Cobbler ink and considered the inside done! Actually the entire card is complete, including the envelope, as the flap is already decorated as part of the pack. So – voila!

Wreath Builder – #3

How can you get your hands on all the ingredients to make this cards? See below for the product list. Remember that SU! has this wonderful 15% off specific DSP during the month of Oct – and Plaid Tidings 6×6 is part of that – yay! Also – use my October HOST CODE HXXMKN2X when your purchase is between $50-$150 to receive a SU! item of your choice valued at $10.
