Online Extravaganza + Card

What a great last two days of stamping and creating! Yesterday it was eye pillows for our daughter who is teaching a class about Essential Oils (Young Living to be exact). I made 7 and they turned out so cute :o) Sorry – no picture of those. Today it was making a birthday card for my brother-in-law and I used some new paper from the Mini Catalogue – whee! The paper is from the Clubhouse Suite… this Designer Series Paper is called Country Club DSP and is very masculine – golf themed on one side, plaids and argyle on the other. Here’s the card I created:

And here are the stats:
* Crumb Cake CS – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4; 1 1/2 x 5 for banner (trimmed w/ the Triple Banner punch
* Whisper White CS – 4 x 5 1/4 (cut one for inside as well) + 2 1/4″ square for 2″ circle punch
* Country Club DSP – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 + 3/4 x 5 1/4 for inside + piece for envelope flap (2 1/4 x 6)
* Garden Green CS – 1 1/2 x 4 trimmed down w? Triple Banner punch
* Night of Navy CS – about 2 1/2 square, cut down w/ Starburst punch
* Bakers Twine – Night of Navy/Sahara Sand for bow
* Perennial Birthday stamp set for the sentiments
* Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots
* Corrugated embossing folder for the Crumb Cake banner

And here’s a picture of the inside of the card:

Remember that tomorrow – Nov 22 – is the last day of the Online Extavaganza! See my prior post with all the deets.
Happy stamping!

New Items Available

All I can say is – wow! to the new paper trimmer SU! is offering customers. As a demonstrator, SU! offers early release of products. This new paper trimmer is a WINNER! The blade is longer and can cut tiny strips without any problem at all. That was a struggle with the previous trimmer, but not this one. And the extendable arm opens to a whopping 17″ length for cutting extra long papers. It’s light-weight but very sturdy. I’m really excited about it and it’s available to customers today – Nov. 1. I encourage you to not delay in placing your order.

The item # is…152392 and the cost is a reasonable $25. Trimmer blades come in a four-pack and will be available Jan 2020. That says to me, if you order the trimmer now, that blade will LAST A LONG TIME before it needs replacing. I’ve used my trimmer now a full month and the blade is still excellent.

Remember to use my HOST CODE if your order is less than $150. Nov 1-20 that code is…

Triple Fold Card

Fun fold cards are just that – FUN to create! One of the best parts of card making is creating something for a special someone. Somehow for me, it’s easier to make a card when I have a reason for that card. This card is for that woman who is struggling with some health issues, is getting better but needs encouragement. Let’s take a look.

 

 

The card was created with a 12″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Pretty Peacock. Score it on the long side at 4 1/4″, 7 1/4″ and 10 1/4″. The elegant papers used to decorate this project were taken from the Come to Gather Designer Series papers in the Holiday catalogue shown on page 48. Here are the stats for the card cuts:

  • for the front and reverse side of that fold, 1 5/8″ x 5 3/8″, cut two, using one side for the front of the card and thew other side of the card stock for the reverse side.
  • for the next two sections, 2 3/4″ x 5 3/8″, cutting two. Again use alternating sides of the DSP for each section.
  • For the last section, 4″ x 5 3/8″. What I did here is slice off 1/2″ the long side, turn that small piece to the reverse side.

Adhere all pieces to the appropriate panels. That third panel could easily be a piece of plain card stock for writing a lovely note :o) ~ just sayin’. On the last panel I have used the 2nd (on mint macaron card stock) and 3rd (on whisper white card stock) largest dies in the Stitched Nested Labels set shown on page 92 in the annual catalogue to include a sentiment. That nice saying came from the Colorful Seasons stamp set shown on page 56 in the annual catalogue. I used another of it’s sayings on the second panel, stamped on a 1 1/8″ piece of mint macaron card stock. It was originally cut as a 4″ length, then I cropped it using the banner triple punch shown on page 186 in the annual catalogue.

The belly band is 1″ x 12″. You may find when you gently wrap it around the card, that it needs to be shortened a bit.¬† Do that before adhering together with snail. Then decorate the belly band. I used the beautiful whisper white 5/8″ Flax Ribbon found on page 174 in the annual catalogue and adhered that also with snail. Using the Gathered Together stamp set (pages 47 & 48 in the Holiday catalogue), I stamped that gorgeous large leaf and colored it with several stamping blends: Pretty Peacock,¬† Granny Apple Green and just a hint of Cherry Cobbler. (see the full range of colors available in the Annual Catalogue on page 179. I then cut it with the Gathered Leaves dies (pg. 47 HC) and adhered with snail.

Fall – Nature’s Roots

Sharing a couple of cards made recently. I’m sooo bad at posting. This first card is a fall card using watercolor paper and Nature’s Roots thinlits. The ribbon is Granny Apple Green Textured Weave. Having scraps left over from a previous project ¬†made this super easy and quick to do. In other words, don’t throw your scraps away!

If you have questions, feel free to contact me. If you’re interested in Stampin’ Up! Products I would be very happy to discuss them with you.

Colorful Seasons

Hi Folks! Amy Koenders posted pictures on her blog yesterday of team members cards they had prepared. I’ve had several questions about mine and since I hadn’t posted info about it – it seems appropriate to do so now.

Begin with Grapefruit Grove cardstock cut to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4.

Using the stitched squares framelits, cut 3.

The large leaf in Colorful Seasons bundle was cut from Perennial Essence DSP, then the “topper” for that leaf was cut from copper foil and adhered using Tombow glue. Easy easy and it gives a gorgeous effect! Using your fingers, gently curl the leaves, cuz leaves are never flat, right? Adhere the leaf with dimensionals. I usually use at least two for a more secure holding. The cording was from the Nature’s Twine set, which is a bundle of four. I simply took my pick it tool and separated the threads to give this frayed look. Three little Metallic pearls were added for a bit of glamor. The sentiment comes from Gather Together, a brand new stamp set/ bundle in the Holiday catalogue, and was stamped in Gray Granite.

For the inside, I kept it really simple. The leaf was again cut from the Perennial Essence paper and adhered with Tombow glue. The envelope was decorated using stamps from the Gather Together stamp set – Grapefruit Grove for the pumpkins and Gray Granite for the sheaf spray on the front.

If you do not have a demonstrator and would like to have a catalogue, please contact me! Thanks for stopping by. May you have a beautiful day.

Peaceful Boughs and Feels Like Frost

Wow! The new SU! Holiday catalogue is now available and here’s a view of the cover.

There are some fabulous finds in this cattie – so be sure to look carefully at every page :o).

As a demonstrator we are able to preorder items from the various catalogues when they become available. The Peaceful Boughs bundle is really, really nice. I love those pine cones! Here is a card I made using the pine cones and one of the Designer Series Papers (DSP) called Feels Like Frost (6 x 6 in size!)

Here are the details…

Balmy Blue card stock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″

Whisper White cardstock cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″

Feels Like Frost cut to 3 3/’ x 5″ … adhere to the Whisper White with liquid glue. Cut a length of the Old Olive/ Pretty Peacock reversible ribbon and adhere in back with glue dots or tape.

Using the Beautiful Boughs framelits, cut the solid piece (or back pice) of the pine cone from Early Espresso. Cut the front piece of the pine cone from Copper foil. Adhere these two pieces together with liquid glue. Adhere these pieces to the card front as shown. Take another small length of the same ribbon and tie it to the horizontal piece and adhere with a glue dot. That cute little pine cone dangling from the ribbon was a leftover from last years Holiday catalogue. (Sorry – a retired item!)

Below is a picture of the inside of the card – sentiment is stamped in Balmy Blue.

Thanks for stopping by! Please be sure to check out the new Holiday catalogue. If you do not have a demonstrator, feel free to contact me for a cattie or with questions. If you would like to place an order, I’m here to help and to encourage you. Create. Inspire. Share.
