Stampin’ Up! Sneak Peek of Painted Christmas Bundles

It’s Thursday folks ~ how goes your week? We saw a wee bit of family again yesterday. The drive over was really bad: got stuck in traffic going 35 mph, turnpike detours due to construction and repairs. But in the end, it was worth it and I’m sooo very glad we went! Today’s card is a sneak peek in using two stunning new bundles: Christmas Season with its coordinating Seasonal Labels Dies AND Christmas to Remember with its coordinating Christmas Pinecone Dies. These two bundles are meant to work together.

Painted Christmas.1

One of the things I like about this card is that it will take no extra postage. In other words, it’s pretty flat. We send quite a few cards at Christmas, so if I can keep from layering and embellishing to the hilt (🥴), that will mean smarter work from me.

I began by doing all the die cuts and card stock cuts. The Christmas Pinecone Dies have two large dies that are like a background die: one is more detailed than the other. The less detailed die is cut in Evening Evergreen and the other in Basic White. The pinecones are separate dies and are die cut using Gold Foil. I then stamped the berries on Basic White scrap: the stem in Crumb Cake ink and the berries in Real Red, then die cut them with a die in Seasonal Labels Dies. I die cut the medium size banner with another of the Seasonal Labels Dies our of the Painted Christmas DSP. Gosh this is gorgeous paper! I cut a panel of another sheet of the Painted Christmas DSP for layering and a piece of Early Espresso card stock to go behind it.

First I trimmed the two large pinecone die cuts apart as I wanted to use only a portion of the die cuts, making certain they were trimmed apart at the same places. Then I layered the white piece to the Evening Evergreen with dots of liquid glue. At this point it was time to put the layers together…. Adhere the large panel of Painted Christmas DSP to the Early Espresso piece and then to the card front. The card base … is Soft Succulent card stock :). Attach the medium banner, also with liquid glue.Attach the pine bough spray with liquid glue, then the two berry sprays. The large foil pine cone is adhered with liquid glue. The two small pine cones have mini dimensionals. I used Seal+ to attach the length of Cherry Cobbler and Gold Metallic Ribbon. I stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen on a Basic White strip using the Christmas To Remember stamp set and fussy cut it. This also got mini dimensionals and was added to the card front. Voila! Love this… just sayin’…

Painted Christmas.2

For the inside I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink using the Christmas To Remember stamp set. I stamped the two pine cone images using the Christmas Season stamp set: Crumb Cake stamped off once for the background and full strength for the detailed top stamp. The pine cones needed a bit of glam and the Red Rhinestone Jewels were a perfect touch. They are small and fairly flat, so they rest well inside the card. Of course, all this was done on a Basic White panel and that was adhered inside the card. Yay! Did I say I love this card yet? I do! And of course, I hope you do as well.

These two bundles work so well together and were intended for that. When the time comes – Aug 3 is just around the corner for customers to order these stunning bundles. If you do not have a demonstrator and need a Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog, please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. And when I send it, there will be a Sale-a-bration catalog in with it!

Stampin’ Up! Sneak Peek of Delicate Dahlias to order

One of the benefits of being a demonstrator is for Stampin’ Up! is preordering from new catalogs. What that means is that when the catalog goes live to demonstrators, we have the opportunity to order stamps, dies suites, bundles, ribbons, embellishments – all that – early – so we can ‘play’ with new product. Creativity at our fingertips… This new catalog – the Jul- Dec 2021 Mini Catalog goers live to customers Aug 3. With orders of $50 or $100, there is also a Sale-a-bration Catalog from which to order FREE product. Today’s Delicate Dahlia is from that catalog. And I;ve used it to make a sympathy card – well, two cards. They use the same layout but are different colors.

Card 1 uses Misty Moonlight elements; Card 2 uses Polished Pink.

Card 1 uses the 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP in Misty Moonlight; Card 2 uses 2021-2023 In Color 6×6 DSP.

Card 1 uses Flowers for Every Season Ribbon in Misty Moonlight & Silver; Card 2 uses Open Weave Ribbon in Polished Pink.

Card 1 uses a new 3D embossing folder called Timeworn Type 3D EF; Card 2 does not use an embossing folder.

Card 1 makes use of Stitched So Sweetly Dies for the sentiment; Card 2 sentiment is stamped directly on the card front.

Card 1 has a rectangular centerpiece; Card 2 has a square centerpiece.

Card 1 uses Metallic Pearls; Card 2 uses Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Both use the stamp set from the Sale-a-bration Catalog that is FREE with a $100 order: Delicate Dahlias. This is a 2-step stamp and a Distinctive stamp, meaning step 2 gives light and dark ‘shading’. It’s gorgeous, right?

Here is the inside of each card. Both use sentiments from Inspiring Thoughts stamp set. Card 2 uses a background stamp from the June Paper Pumpkin kit – but… you could use a stamp from Artistically Inked or Watercolor Shapes stamp set – and stamp off at least once.

Here you see the completed cards with the envelope. I love both and am not certain I can say one is better than the other. The one on the left could be for a man, while card 2, Polished Pink is definitely for a woman.

If I can help you in any way to order these items, or others, please give me a holler. As a thank you to my customers, when the order is between $50-$150 I offer a SU! item of your choice valued at $10. Remember to use MY NEW HOST CODE for July – 4TKMUNQH . When the order is over $150, you still receive that free gift from me, but SU! has Stampin’ Rewards that may be used for additional products, so don’t use the host code at that time.

Stampin’ Up! Painted Christmas Suite

Yesterday I indicated today’s card would b e from the new catalog – and it definitely IS! This Painted Christmas Suite has just beautiful products in it: Gold Holly Leaves; two stamp bundles (yes! TWO!), ribbon (not used on this card), and gorgeous, gorgeous Designer Series Paper.

Painted C’mas Suite.1

Here you can see the Gold Holly Leaves (adhered with a glue dot), these extra fun banner dies, and the stunning pine cone dies. The pine cone dies are in two parts: a more solid background and the more intricate top layer. I die cut the more solid layer in Basic White then there were a couple of single pine cone dies with the intricate pattern – and those were die cut from Shimmer paper. (there is also a large intricate die, but I chose not to use that here.) These were adhered to the DSP with liquid glue.

The sentiment banner is two separate dies and the cute little white ‘add on’ are also part of it. The larger is die cut from Evening Evergreen card stock and layered on the card with dimensionals. The small white pieces were added with just a dot of liquid glue. The sentiment is from Christmas to Remember stamp set (in the suite of products), stamped in Evening Evergreen and added with dimensionals. Then the Gold Holly Leaves were attached with glue dots.

The layers are: Evening Evergreen card base, Basic White and the Painted Christmas DSP.

Painted C;mas Suite.2

For the inside the sentiment is from the Painted Christmas stamp set and the pine needles are from Christmas Season stamp set – both stamped in Evening Evergreen on the Basic White panel.

Painted C’mas Suite.3

Here it is much easier to see how beautiful this piece of DSP is – on the envelope flap. And the pine needle stamp is the same used on the inside of the card stamped in Evening Evergreen.

This suite of products includes two stamp bundles: Christmas Season, which includes images of pine cones, berrries, leaf spray, holly leaves and more and it’s coordinating Seasonal Labels Dies; and Christmas To Remember stamp set that has various sentiments and it’s coordinating Christmas Pinecone Dies that includes the dies (and more) that I used on the card front. As mentioned earlier, this suite also includes the Gold Holly leaves, the ribb on and the DSP – all to coordinate. They may b e found on pages 16-19 of the Jul-Dec Mini Catalog.If you do not have a catalog, nor a demonstrator, I can help you with that. 😁 Items from this catalog will be available to customers August 3.

If I can help you in any way to order these items, or others, please give me a holler. As a thank you to my customers, when the order is between $50-$150 I offer a SU! item of your choice valued at $10. Remember to use MY NEW HOST CODE for July – 4TKMUNQH .

Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Christmas

Today’s card has taken on a rather modern look for a Christmas card, but with very traditional colors and sentiment. I saw something similar on Pinterest from different demonstrators, but not as a Christmas card – and well, I try to get ahead on making Christmas cards. I’ve also used the Poinsettia Petals bundle, which is in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

Stitched Triangles C’mas.1

What do you think? Too modern? I have to say I really like it – it’s different. To add more bling, the large poinsettia could be gold embossed – that would be pretty too. And I can see this done in shades of pink for the poinsettia and different DSP of course. Yep, may have to try that as well.

OK, the how to:

  • Cut triangles with the Stitched Triangles Dies using the Tidings & Trimmings 6×6 DSP and Cherry Cobbler card stock
  • Adhere triangles together as shown – liquid glue is my product of choice, but it would be easy enough to use Stampin’ Seal
  • Adhere to the card front with either liquid glue or Stampin’ Seal. I like to use my Stamparatus when doing something like this. And the card base is Thick Basic White in A2 size.
  • Stamp the sentiment with VersaMark ink then cover with gold embossing powder and heat set.
  • Create the poinsettias/ leaves with the Poinsettia Petals stamp set: stamp in Soft Suede ink then die cut with the Poinsettia Dies. Color the leaves with Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Blends. Adhere the large poinsettia together with a mini dimensional then to the card also with a dimensional. I added dimensionals under at least three of the petals on the right. Add leaves under the poinsettia with liquid glue, trim if necessary to make them fit
  • The small poinsettia is die cut straight from Tidings & Trimmings 6×6 DSP. It is adhered together with a mini dimensional then directly to the card with liquid glue
  • Add several Holiday Rhinestone Jewels to highlight the sentiment.
Stitched Triangles C’mas.2

For the inside – I die cut a couple more triangles from the Tidings & Trimmings 6×6 DSP and adhered them together with liquid glue, then to a Basic White panel. That was added to the inside of the card and voila!

Stitched Triangbles C’mas.3

For the envelope I adhered Tidings & Trimmings 6×6 DSP to the envelope flap then stamped the fun pine needles in Evening Evergreen ink. I added Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to the single pinecone. This is from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set.

Stampin’ Up! New Nature’s Harvest

Oh-oh-oh … some new SU! product arrived yesterday:) and I couldn’t WAIT to play. It was the Harvest Meadows DSP that caught my eye first so I went with it. Here it is…

Nature’s Harvest.1

This is a fun Gate-fold card to show off both sides of the DSP. I should have taken a photo of the belly band before adding the elements to the front! At least you can see that it’s Bumblebee in color. The sentiment in this stamp set is perfect for so many occasions – sympathy, a ‘pick-me-up’, thinking of you. And it is has a delicate font. It’s from the Nature’s Harvest bundle.

Nature’s Harvest.2

Isn’t this paper stunning? It’s Misty Moonlight and white. A gate-fold card is pretty basic: an A2 card base but scored with equal sides to close the card. I adhered Misty Moonlight to each side panel first, then the DSP. The belly band is a strip 1″ wide wrapped loosely around the closed card and trimmed to overlap. I then turned the DSP over and adhered the other side to the strip – and it is a more narrow piece. I adhered the ends together with Tear n tape cuz I wanted it extra strong. And I did not burnish the creases of the belly band – that makes it too tight. I used the Everyday Label punch two pieces – Misty Moonlight and Bumblebee card stock, then trimmed the Bumblebee down a bit so the Misty moonlight showed. This was attached to the belly band with dimensionals. The sentiment banner is Basic White card stock with the ends trimmed with the Banners Pick a Punch. Of course the sentiment is from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set and stamped in Misty Moonlight ink. I added several 2021-2023 In Color Jewels to the banner before attaching it with dimensionals to the belly band.

The inside… I HAD to play with the dies in this bundle and some new paper – Kraft 6×6 Paper pack AND another fun stamp in the Nature’s Harvest stamp set:

Nature’s Harvest.3

The dies on the left & right do not have coordinating stamps, but they are still stunning dies. They are attached with dots of liquid glue. The floral stamp is done in Misty Moonlight on a Basic White panel. The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake – to coordinate with the Kraft 6×6 Paper 🙂 The Basic White panel is adhered to a slightly larger piece of Misty Moonlight and affixed to the center of the card – all with liquid glue. Love this bundle! It does come as a suite of products but because I didn’t use all the parts of the suite in this card – I didn’t want to focus on that. I will definitely be playing more with these products in the future. All of these are new in the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog. 😉 Don’t have a demonstrator? And don’t have a catalog?

Stampin’ Up! Masculine Birthday

Today’s card is oh so masculine. I’m loving the layers and the colors – and the Designer Series Paper. In Good taste DSP is part of the 15% off Designer Series Paper Sale through Aug 2. If you don’t have this package of papers, now is the perfect time to get it. Let’s look at the card.

Masculine Birthday.1

The Biggest Wish stamp set was used for the sentiment on the front of the card: the happy was stamped in Cherry Cobbler while the BIRTHDAY was stamped in Early Espresso – on a Basic White panel.This was layered on Cherry Cobbler card stock slightly larger. But we should start at the beginning…

  • Thick Basic White card base 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Cover the card front with a panel of the In Good Taste DSP 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, adhering with liquid glue
  • Layer another piece of In Good Taste DSP (4 1/4 x 3 3/4) with Cherry Cobbler ( 4 14 x 4)
  • Adhere this to the card front, centered.
  • Layer a vertical strip of Early Espresso 1 3/8 x 5 1/2, adhering with liquid glue.
  • Add the sentiment layer with dimensionals (Basic White panel is 2 3/4 x 2 and the Cherry Cobbler panel is 3 x 2 1/4)
  • Add three Opal Rounds – and the card front is done!
  • Stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink on a Basic White panel (4 x 5 1/4). The sentiment comes from the Hey birthday Chick stamp set.
  • Adhere a Cherry Cobbler “frame” 3 /3/4 x 5. (This was in my stash)
  • Die cut the number 40 (or some other number) in Cherry Cobbler and in scraps of In Good Taste. Adhere together with tiny dots of liquid glue. Adhere under the sentiment. Having the number front & center is the perfect touch for this card. I took a picture before the numbers were added and you can see how it’s rather plain, but with the numbers – well, they make it ‘pop’. The numbers were created using the Playful Alphabet Dies. Do you notice how having the two layers of numbers creates a shadow effect?
Masculine Birthday.4

I added coordinating DSP from In Good Taste DSP pack to the envelope flap. I stamped the balloons in Cherry Cobbler ink – from the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set – and voila! The card is complete. My friend is picking up the card this morning.

Stampin’ Up! Summertime Colors & Contour

Here we are in the middle of summer! Whee! Is it hot enough for you? We have been sweltering here on the East coast of the US… today another thunderstorm that kept interrupting power. Even our Springer Spaniel was a bit skeered (scared). The thunder & lightening was very near… We have survived and have Internet again :O) Thank goodness cuz I wasn’t finished with my post for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop. So here we go…

My card for the theme of summertime – anything that pertains to that.. and I chose flowers – I am that kind of woman. We are surrounded by flowers. Of course we have to be careful what we plant as there are deer that roam and eat & eat & eat. Poor things. But I get off-track. Here’s my card…

The theme is summer… do these colors shout summer? Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather & Blushing Bride for the die cut flowers – all using the Scalloped Contour Dies and the Color & Contour stamp set. The Designer Series Paper is Hand-Penned DSP (NOTE: it’s part of the Designer Series Paper Sale – 15% off for select papers, and this is one of them!). I also used on the inside, one of the papers from Pattern Party DSP, which is a HOST bonus with a $300 order.

Here’s what I did:

  • cut the card base (Basic White, Thick) 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and score at 4 14. Remove 1/2″ on ONE short side. This will be the front.
  • Cover the front panel with Hand-Penned DSP (3 3/4 x 5 1/2)
  • Stamp & die cut the flowers: Color & Contour stamp set with coordinating Scalloped Contour Dies.
  • Run a panel of Basic White through the die cutting machine with Stitched Greenery Dies.
  • Die cut this panel with the second largest scalloped die in the Scalloped Contour Dies.
  • Adhere flowers either with dimensionals or liquid glue to the die cut panel. Let’s see… the lowest Daffodil Delight flower was adhered with liquid glue, then the Highland Heather flower with a dimensionals. The upper Daffodil Delight flower also had a dimensional. I then wrapped the panel with Baker’s Twine Essential Pack (white) that had been separated, and tied a bow (secured it with a glue dot to hold it in place).
  • Adhere the scalloped panel to the card front so it overhangs the card front – with dimensionals.
  • The Blushing Bride flower was actually cut in about half and adhered to the card front with liquid glue, slipping it under the scalloped panel.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Memento Black ink – from Color & Contour stamp set and fussy cut. Adhere with dimensionals.
  • Add three Genial Gems to flower centers. Card front is DONE!
Summertime Contours.2
  • For the inside, adhere a piece of Pattern Party DSP to the entire panel (4 1/4 x 5 12), with liquid glue.
  • Die cut another panel of Basic White with the Scalloped Contour Dies.
  • Stamp the flower from the Color & Contour stamp set in Memento Black ink.
  • Stamp the sentiment aslo in Memento Black ink – same stamp set,
  • Add three Genial Gems to the flowers. DONE again!
Summertime Contours.3
  • For the envelope, add a panel of Hand-Penned DSp to the envelope flap and trim to fit. Yep, liquid glue is my product of choice.
  • Add the sweet leaf from the Color & contour stamp set with Memento Black ink and voila – this card is ready.

Don’t you love a handmade card? I do. It says to the recipient, ‘I care about you and thought of you while making this.” It’s special. You will not find a card like this at the dollar store. Ok, I’ll get off my soap box. Probably preaching to the wrong folks anyway :}

Stampin’ Up! Poppies Congratulations

Poppies, poppies – love these poppies! Painted poppies & the Poppy Moments Dies are not new items in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. But… they are – gorgeous – and fun to use. And today’s card features these items – and more.

Poppies Congratulations.1

This card uses the new 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum for die cuts on the leaves. Unfortunately the shimmer doesn’t really show in the photo – but it’s there! And the Vellum color is Soft Succulent. It is paired with regular vellum as well. Let’s do a step by step that will easily share all the elements of this card.

  • The card base is Sahara Sand card stock 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Layer a panel of Neutrals 6×6 card stock in Sahara Sand to the card front. It is 4 14 x 5 1/2.
  • Die cut sections of the poppy from Basic White card stock: the poppy outline and the two layered centers. These use the Poppy Moments Dies.
  • Die cut the flower itself and the larger portion of the leaves in regular vellum.
  • Die cut the leaf embellishment using the 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum in Soft Succulent.
  • Color the backside of the vellum flower using Dark Cherry Cobbler Blends. Adhere the flower together with dimensionals. Adhere flower to the card base with a single dimensional
  • Using very little liquid glue, adhere the leaf parts together. Trim one of the leaf sections in two parts. Adhere under the poppy with small amounts of liquid glue
  • Stamp the sentiment using the Peaceful Moments stamp set and Memento Black ink. Die cut with the Ornate Frames Dies. Adhere to the card front with dimensionals
  • Add 2021-2023 In Color Jewels in Evening Evergreen and the card front is done!
Poppies Congratulations.2
  • For the inside of the card…
    • adhere a strip of the Neutral 6×6 DSP to the left of a Basic White panel 4 x 5 14
    • Stamp the poppy from Painted Poppies stamp set in Memento Black ink and color with Stampin Blends: Dark Cherry Cobbler & Dark Soft Succulent.
    • Stamp the sentiment from Peaceful Moments stamp set in memento black ink
    • Adhere panel to the inside of the card – VOILA!
Poppies Congratulations.3

For the envelope I stamped the very same poppy as the inside of the card on the front of the envelope: Painted Poppies stamp set + Memento Black ink, then colored with Stampin Blends Dark Cherry Cobbler & Dark Soft Succulent. The flap was covered with a strip of Sahara Sand Card Stock & more of the Neutrals 6×6 DSP in Sahara Sand and trimmed to fit.

Such a fun card and I do love these poppies! I like having a congratulations card on hand at all times – perfect for many celebrations. And – this could be used for a man as well. Because of the background paper it is not particularly feminine – and that’s good thing 🙂

Stampin’ Up Hello with Artistically Inked

Today’s card uses – as the title suggests – the Artistically Inked bundle and the beautiful Stitched Greenery Dies. I’ll be honest, I didn’t think I would like the Stitched Greenery Dies – but I DO!!!. It leaves this beautiful imprint that is delicate and well, just beautiful. The card is pretty simple with a couple of layers for added charm & depth. This die is in the NEW July-December Min Catalog that will be available to customers Aug 3. More about that later in this post…

.1Hello w/ Artistically Inked

We start off with a card base of So Saffron card stock and cover the front with Regals 6×6 DSP in Crushed Curry. We then run a panel of Basic White through the Cut & Emboss machine using the Stitched Greenery Dies and cut it down to the size I wanted. I adhered this to another Basic White panel that was slightly larger, for strength. Stamp the ‘hello’ from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Memento Black ink and fussy cut. Stamp the single rose in So Saffron ink (stamped off once) on a Basic White scrap and die cut with the Artistic Dies. Stamp the leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink (also stamped off once) on another Basic White scrap and die cut those with the appropriate dies in the Artistic Dies. I played around a bit with how I wanted the leaves then adhered them to the back of the rose with liquid glue I put dimensionals on the back of the rose and on the back of the double leaf and set it aside. I put dimensionals on the back of the hello and set it aside as well. I cut a strip of Basic White and wrapped Gingham Ribbon in Bumblebee around it, using glue dots to secure in place. I added the strip to the left edge of the Basic White panel with liquid glue and put dimensionals on the right end where it extends. I added the hello on the extended end and the rose & leaves to the corner. The upper leaf that extends has a double layer of dimensionals. For that final glam I added three Opal Rounds and the card front was complete. 🙂

Hello w/ Artistically Inked.2

For the inside I stamped the splotch from the Artistically Inked stamp set in stamped off So Saffron ink. I then pulled out the Quiet Meadow stamp set and stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink ~ all this on a Basic White panel. The panel was adhered on the inside of the card with liquid glue and voila! Love this…

Hello w/ Artistically Inked.3

For the envelope, I stamped the flap with the same splotch with Pear Pizzazz ink full strength and that was it. You will notice in this picture there are no Opal Rounds – I added them after I took this photo! So tell me – do you like the card better with or without the Opal Rounds? This is a test 😁. I like them better with – obviously.

I like this card – it’s bright, fresh looking and has dimension and texture and was fun to create. I just let my mind decide what was next. The other thing I did was mix the shades of yellow and it’s hard to tell. The So Saffron rose is softer than it’s Crushed Curry background or the Bumblebee Gingham ribbon, but they do not clash – they compliment. That’s Stampin’ Up!
