Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Thinking of You

Hello! How’s your Saturday? It’s beautiful here on the East Coast… and a good day for some outdoor activities 🙂 While it is still full swing summer here, I chose to make this easy, fun, fall card. It uses the stunning Stitched leaves Dies that emboss and die cut all in one movement. This is a carry-over item into the 2021 Annual Catalog that coordinates with the Love of Leaves stamp set, but for this card I have used some new products available in the to the general public from the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog. Aug 3 is that big date!

Love of Leaves & Stitched Leaves Dies.1

What are the new products? The awesomely sparkly Be Dazzling 6×6 DSP is one of the new items on this card; the other is the Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots in gold. The white bow is made by pulling apart a length of the Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack and attaching it with a glue dot. This is a new item in the 2021 Annual Catalog.

Ok, so you see the colors: Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider and the Be Dazzling 6×6 DSP, layered on a piece of Early Espresso card stock (which was added to the card base with dimensionals). The card base is Very Vanilla that has been run through the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. The large leaf was adhered just in the center with liquid glue. The Cinnamon Cider leaf got dimensionals and was placed over the large leaf. The Cherry Cobbler leaf was adhered with liquid glue as well. The inspiration for this card came from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge as seen in the sketch below. What do you think? Does it look like the sketch?

Each of the leaves has been die cut with the Stitched Leaves Dies, two of them have that wonderful stitching that looks like veins in the leaves. I REALLY like these! Of course I like the large leaf too, but I didn’t think the veins would show on that sparkly DSP. What else can I tell you about this – oh, the long Cinnamon Cider leaf was cut from the 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP.

Let’s take peek at the inside of the card.

Stitched Leaves Dies.2

I die cut this small leaf from Cherry Cobbler card stock scrap and once I put the card front together, here was this fun scrap. I decided to add it to the inside of the card with liquid glue. It brings a fun element to the card. I stamped the sentiment from the Loves of Leaves stamp set with Cinnamon Cider ink. All this was done on a Very Vanilla panel which was added to the inside of the card.

Love of Leaves & Stitched Leaves Dies.3

The leaf stamps in the Love of Leaves stamp set are distinctive, which means they don’t make a solid image. The large leaf in this set was stamped in 2nd & 3rd generation with Cinnamon Cider ink on the front and the flap.

It seems strange to make a fall kind of card at this time of year, but that’s what seem to come together – and I like it. It’s just that it won’t get used for a while!

Stampin’ Up! Diagonal Gatefold Envelope

Hi there! It’s Wednesday the 28th – just days away from the END of the 15% off select DSP sale (Aug 2) and the LAUNCH of the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog (Aug 3) & Sale-a-bration catalogs (Aug 3 – Sep 30). WhooHoo! Shall we call this WooHoo Wednesday? Silliness, right? OK … today’s project is the envelope for a Diagonal Gatefold card. The card information was shared in yesterday’s post which you may see here. The envelope is created with one of the paper packs avail in the 2021- 2022 Annual Catalog called Pattern Party DSP. It is available when you make a purchase of $300 or more. The pack is wonderful – black & white on one side and colorful on the other. Below is the finished envelope for a look see. The “address” label on the front shows the other side of this particular piece.

Diagonal Gatefold Envelope.1

The how to…

  • Cut the DSP 8 1/2 x 12: score on the LONG side 3/4, 7 3/4; score on the SHORT side 7/8, 6 3/4
  • Burnish all score lines and trim – see photo for reference
Diagonal Gatefold Envelope.2
  • Use the Detailed Trio Punch to round the edges of the flap
  • Add Tear n Tape to the outside pieces just long enough for the fold up of the bottom.
  • Add Tear n Tape to the flap as well
Diagonal Gatefold Envelope.3
  • Fold up bottom and adhere. You can clearly see that I ran the Tear n Tape too long on the sides. I simply rolled it down once the covering was removed and it worked perfectly.
  • Using the Seasonal Labels Dies to cut a panel for the front to use as an address label. I used some of the same Pattern Party DSP for the label. The seasonal Labels Dies will be available in the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog beginning Aug 3. It is part of the Christmas Season Bundle.

Love how this envelope turned out – and so glad I had the Pattern Party DSP pack to use for it!

Stampin’ Up! Diagonal Gate Fold for Christmas

It’s Tuesday – shall we call it Terrific Tuesday? I sorta like that 🙂 Todays card is just that – terrific. This is a fun fold that is not new, but since I never made one, well, it was time. I’ve used the Tidings of Christmas 6×6 DSP and combined it with the Evergreen Elegance bundle which may be found in the Annual Catalog, page 91. This is such a fun and easy card to make.

Diagonal Gatefold C’mas.1

How to make…do all your scoring first, then cut your papers and adhere.

Scoring

  • begin with your card base 5 1/2 x 8 1/4, scored on the long side at 2 3/4 & 5 1/2. (mine is Cherry Cobbler)
  • score the left panel from the upper left corner to the 1st score line on the diagonal
  • score the right panel from the upper left corner of the 2nd score line to the bottom right corner
  • burnish the score lines so they are mountain, valley, valley, mountain

Cutting your papers

  • cut each card stock layer 2 5/8 x 5 3/8 (there will be 4, three in Soft Succulent, 1 in Basic White
  • cut TWO of the Soft Succulent layers on the diagonal from the upper left corner to the lower right corner (the remaining piece will be the center panel)
  • cut the Basic White panel from the upper right corner to the lower left corner
  • cut a Basic White panel for the card center 2 1/2 x 5 1/4
  • cut DSP layers 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 (I cut three coordinating panels)
  • cut TWO DSP layers on the diagonal from the upper left corner to the lower right corner
  • cut ONE DSP layer from the upper right corner to the lower left corner (this is my Soft Succulent DSP layer), there will be one of these left over

TIP: When cutting your DSP layers, if there is a definite direction to the design, make certain you are cutting it in the proper direction. 🙂

Diagonal Gatefold C’mas.2

Next steps

  • Stamp the center Basic White panel and add decoration
    • The sentiment is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink using the Evergreen Elegance stamp set
    • The trees at the bottom are punched using the Evergreen Border Punch, Soft Succulent card stock and Evening Evergreen card stock and adhered to the panel with liquid glue
    • Adhere this panel to the center of the card
  • Stamp the diagonally trimmed Basic White panel using Evening Evergreen ink and the smallest tree from the Evergreen Elegance stamp set: first full strength, then the two side trees without re-inking
  • Adhere this Basic White panel as shown in photo
Diagonal Gatefold C’mas.3

You are nearly done…

  • Adhere the trimmed panels with liquid glue: layers are card stock then DSP!
  • Stamp the sentiment for the front banner in Cherry Cobbler ink using the Evergreen Elegance stamp set – on a Basic White strip
  • Cut the banner with this beautiful die using the Seasonal Labels Dies (this is in the Jul-Dec Mini Catalog on page 17 and is part of the Christmas Season bundle)
  • Adhere the die cut sentiment banner to a piece of Soft Succulent card stock 1 1/8 x 4 1/4
  • Close the card and adhere the banner with dimensionals on the left side only
  • Add Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the banner and to the tree – voila! Beautiful, right?
Diagonal Gatefold C’mas.4

This card will need a handmade envelope as the finished size is 5 1/2 x 6. I will include directions for the envelope in tomorrow’s post. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Birthday w/ In Good Taste DSP Fun Fold

Happy Monday and all that… hope you enjoyed your weekend. We had spectacular weather, so good for working outside some. Today – well, hot and humid once more so working inside will be more productive I’m thinkin’.

Today’s card is super easy, a bit of a fun fold, perfect for using some In Good Taste DSP – which is on SALE for 15% off (more details below).

B’day w/ In Good Taste DSP.1

Both of the DSP on this card come from In Good Taste DSP pack and they look great together. One of the things about this card is it can so easily be a masculine card – or not. I appreciate its versatility. This smaller strip of DSP looks as though it has texture, but doesn’t. It also opens to the inside of the card. In other words, The background DSP is a flat surface :O). Here’s how to do this…

  • Night of Navy card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
  • In Good Taste DSP layer is 4 x 5 1/4
  • Basic White panel 2 1/2 x 10 1/2, with DSP layer (2 1/2 x 5 1/4) adhered to the front of it
  • Basic White panel adhered to card base
  • Add Just Jade strip (1/4 x 5 1/4) left of panel
  • Create sentiment strip
    • stamp sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a Basic White strip (1/2 x 3 1/2); angle end.
    • add BW strip to Night of Navy (5/8 x 3 3/4) with liquid glue; angle end
    • add Flowers for Every Season Ribbon in Just Jade to the sentiment strip w/ Seal+
    • put dimensionals on the back of the panel and add to card panel
    • add three Playing with Resin Dots in Just Jade to the left of the sentiment
B’day w/ In Good Taste DSP.2

For the inside… stamp the sentiment in Just Jade ink using the Pansy Patch stamp set again. Add a strip of the In Good Taste DSP to the bottom of the panel – and voila! This card is complete.

B’day In Good Taste DSP.3

For the envelope i did some fussy cutting of the In Good Taste DSP to create a fun edge and adhered it to the env envelope flap… done.done.done.

I like how easy this card was to make and how fun to have a different width for the additional panel. If you wanted, you could easily add a Basic White panel (4 x 5 1/4) to the back of the card to have more writing space. Remember this DSP is currently 15% off – see more info below.

Stampin’ Up! Cork DSP Sneak Peek

Hello again – happy Saturday! It is one gorgeous day here on the East coast and I am enjoying the freshness of the air. I am creating my post while on the front porch 🙂 It has been so exceedingly hot lately that I would not have even considered doing this earlier in the week. But here we are… I hope you have something fun planned for today.

My card today is super easy – and uses the new (out Aug 3 in the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog) Cork 12 x 12 DSP. I like using our Note Cards & Envelopes, so this is one of those. Here’s the cork is a close-up photo.

Can you see the wonderful texture in this cork? It’s easy to work with. I’ve layered this on Pear Pizzazz and adhered them both to the Basic White Note Card with liquid glue. I then die cut a Basic White piece using the Tailor Made Tags Dies and stamped it with the Dragonfly Garden stamp with Early Espresso ink. I love this stamp! It is one of my favorites. I then colored it using various Markers: Pear Pizzazz, Bumblebee, Highland Heather and Soft Suede. I added a sweet Bumblebee trinket and then some Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, put dimensionals on the back and added it to the card. Simple, sweet and it would make a nice gift set if several were made. I may do that – we’ll see. If I do, I would probably put them in a similarly decorated mini Paper Pumpkin box. Hmmm – another project, another post 🙂

Cork w/ Dragonfly Garden.2

Here you can see the finished project. With the envelope I covered the flap with Subtles 6×6 DSP in Pear Pizzazz and stamped the front with the same stamp but chose not to color it. It’s beautiful as is.

US SCHOOL SUPPLY SALES TAX HOLIDAY

Eleven states will be offering a sales tax holiday for school supplies during the months of July or August. Products that are eligible according to the statute include “items normally used by students in a standard classroom for educational purposes.” To see the names of participating states, products exempted from tax, and sales tax holiday dates, click here.

If you have customers who live in states who benefit from the sales tax holiday (yay!), be sure to give them a call and let them know.

Note: Georgia, Louisiana, and Wisconsin have suspended the sales tax holiday for this year.

Thanks for stopping by. May you have a beautiful day. Inspire. Create. Share. Nothing beats a handmade card!

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! That means more FREE items to choose from with every order of $50, or $100 or multiples of that. Please also use my current host code 4TKMUNQH when ordering.

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 . 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! 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.

August 3 brings a NEW Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog… yesterday’s post showed a product from this new catalog and tomorrow’s post will also – so stay tuned!

July–December 2021 Mini Catalogue

During a portion of the mini catalog, there are also Sale-a-bration opportunities. What that means is when you purchase $50 or $100 worth of products, SU! is offering FREE product in the way of stamps, paper and even a die that are only offered during this time frame: Aug 3 – Sep 30. In other words, purchasing any SU! product during the time of Sale-a-bration will get you FREE product! And remember – you also get an item of choice valued at $10 from me when your purchase is $50 plus (before tax & shipping)
