I love to be creative - in the garden, crafting, and in leadership roles. There is something wonderful that happens when we design something new and share it with others. It's fun and makes everyone happy.

SU! Dog Builder Punch and Playful Pets DSP

Hi Everyone. It has been so stiflingly hot lately – the humidity is super high and it just makes it real uncomfortable to have to be outside. I feel so fortunate to have air conditioning – didn’t grow up with it and I remember those days… Let’s see, I told about our S-I-L shattering his elbow in a cycling accident. He’s home now, good spirits and positive attitude. So so thankful for so many things. There does not appear to be nerve damage; he can move all his fingers! Essentially they had to remove the elbow – now he has three metal plates instead… what they can do now is just amazing. So thankful – God was at work (and continues to be!) throughout this in so many ways.

Card for today… for a friend whose dog passed away recently. Pets are such an important part of our lives… and she had this fella 18 years, longer than most.

Playful Pets DSP and Dog Builder Punch
#1

The card base is Gray Granite… layer Real Read then the Playful Pets DSP. This layer has dimensionals. The banners were punched with the Banners Pick a Punch. Those little paws and hearts in the DSP are just sweet, aren’t they? The dog is punched with the Dog Builder punch in Basic Black cs and he’s on dimensional too. I tied a piece of crochet yarn around that little doggies neck before attaching him to the card front.(I know, not a SU! item…) And that heart is part of the punch – and it’s in Real Red. Those little Black Rhinestone Jewels are a retired item (unfortunately!) The ‘Thinking of You’ sentiment is from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set.

SU! Prized Peony

Hi Everyone! Things have gotten a bit complicated here… it’s called the “concern zone” but it’s nothing to take lightly… our S-I-L is a competitive cyclist (first in the country in his age group last year and several years prior – so, GOOD at it) and has been practicing inside for the past several months – at least since March. He ventured out about 1 1/2 weeks ago, riding 3 hrs, going at 50 mph speeds. Yeah, not something I would ever do… At any rate, he joined a new team recently and they went for a ride Sunday; didn’t touch, fist bump or anything. These guys are cautious and careful.. And guess what… he hit a nasty pothole and went boom… shattered his right elbow. Surgery was today – 4 1/2 hrs long…It’s complicated due to the nerves that run down the elbow, bone fragments and all that. Anyway – appreciate your prayers for him – and our daughter who has been so strong..,.He’s a dentist by vocation and this is a real setback for them, with Covid 19 and all that. So yes, I am one concerned M-I-L trying to stay calm, cool and collected :O)

Prized Peony
#1

 

Todays card uses the Prized Peony stamp set and the gorgeous Peony Garden DSP. And while I don’t usually enter challenges, this one is loosely based on the Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge #344 (HSSSC344). I tuned it sideways…

  • Peony Garden DSP
  • Gray Granite cs – card base
  • Petal Pink cs – layering
  • Whisper White cs – circle and inside
  • Gray Granite ink
  • Petal Pink ink
  • Wink of Stella
  • North Pole Wonder Dies
  • Crinkled Seam Binding 1/4″ Whisper White
  • Elegant Faceted Gems

Layer the Peony Garden DSP on Petal Pink cs for the front and adhere with liquid glue.Stamp the small peony from the Prized Peony stamp set in Petal Pink and color in Wink of Stella. Die cut using the North Pole Wonder Dies circle. Die cut the pinked circle from the same die set using Whisper White cs. Adhere the two circles together with liquid glue and add dimesnionals: attach. Add a bow from the Crinkled Seam Binding !/4″ Whisper White ribbon with a glue dot. Add three Elegant Faceted Gems in Petal Pink.Your card front is complete!

Prized Peony, inside
#2

For the inside, I adhered Petal Pink cs for a layer then stamped the Whisper White panel with the medium peony from the stamp set in Gray Granite stamped off once. I also stamped the sentiment in Gray Granite from the Prized Peony stamp set. Adhere with liquid glue to the Petal Pink panel. And your inside is complete as well.

For the envelope, I used another strip of the Peony Garden DSP for the flap and stamped the front with the same medium peony in Gray Granite ink. So simple, so elegant – and ready. :O)

SU! Back On Your Feet Double Z Fold

Hi everyone ~ how’s it going? You doing OK? Some days during this self containment are easier than others, right? So, one day at a time just do the best you can; try not to look ahead too far cuz that can get you kinda crazy. Take the best care you can of yourself and family. Guess I’m feeling a bit philosophical this morning….

Todays card is for a friend who had surgery on their neck – a couple of fuses – and they are struggling, really struggling. I decided a little levity might be helpful and this is what I created.

Back On Your Feet Double Z Fold
#1`

Is this perfect for neck surgery or what! And it’s a double z fold which puts it up a couple of notches in being special. The World of Good Specialty DSP is perfect for this man as he has traveled around the world and then some. I doubt they will notice the significance but I certainly did while making this card.

Here are the products I used… card cuts are listed at the bottom of the post…

  • Back On Your Feet stamp set
  • Crumb Cake cs for the base of the larger Z and the smaller Z
  • Early Espresso cs for layering
  • World of Good Specialty DSP
  • Whisper White cs
  • Old World Paper 3D embossing folder
  • Stitched Rectangles Dies
  • Lovely Labels Pick a Punch
  • Wink of Stella
  • Crumb Cake and Early Espresso inks
  • 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots, Cinnamon Cider

When I create a card like this, I do one portion at a time – one Z fold, then the other. You can cut everything and lay it out for efficiency, but I was still working out sizes for the smaller Z. Crumb Cake is the base of the card, layer the Early espresso for all three sections of the larger Z, then layer the World of Good Specialty DSP for the three sections. For the smaller Z, Crumb Cake cs was used for the card base layer, then Early Espresso cs for the first (or front) and last (or back) layers, then DSP on the first and Whisper White for the last (for sentiment). For the front layer, the DSP was run through the Old World Paper 3 D embossing folder. Gosh that embossing folder is amazing… You can see it very clearly in this photo.

Back On Your Feet Double Z fold
#2

I don’t adhere the Whisper White panel until I have the sentiment or design on cuz – you know, mistakes happen… lol. The turtle was stamped in Early Espresso ink. Then I took my Wink of Stella and colored in the shell only. This moved the ink around a bit and gave it some variety. Then I stamped the sentiment in Crumb Cake ink.

Now that both Z folds are created I put them together… I lay the small one on to get an idea where it should sit on the larger Z. When the card is closed, we don’t want to see the last panel of the small Z at all. Once I have seen how it fits, I adhere the back panel first, then the front and it creates this wonderful Z. Take a peek at this photo from the top of the card.

Back On Your Feet Double Z fold
#3

That cute giraffe was stamped on Whisper White in Crumb Cake ink. I used the light Crumb Cake Blends to color in the spots very lightly, then covered the giraffe in Wink of Stella. Again, this moves the ink around a bit and colors the giraffe lightly. The giraffe was adhered with dimensionals. I then stamped the word OUCH! on a 1/2″ wide length of Whisper White in Early Espresso and cut the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. I added three 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots and attached with liquid glue.

The envelope flap was covered in the World of Good SDSP and then stamped on the front with the word SIGH… several times since this is such a long recovery. The card is complete and guess what – mine is already in the mail as we speak. How fast is that for a turn-around?

SU! Mini Gatefold

Hello there… Weather advisory for the East coast is to stay INSIDE today – it will feel like 104! Yeck!  Be safe…I have been doing doing several different fun folds lately and well, I just couldn’t stop… todays is a mini version, a little 3″ card for a grandson turning 20… Cannot believe he is 20! 6’4″ and handsome – oh my…I’m just a little bit prejudiced. 😍 Anyway, the card… This young man has come to expect something fun in the way of a card, not something you can buy at the store – yay.. getting them trained. :o) So here it is…

Mini Gate Fold
#1
Mini Gate Fold #2
Mini Gate Fold
#3

This is so cute – perhaps because it is small. And I just love the way the folds are… here it is from a another angle.

Mini Gate Fold
#4

Now you can really see all the folds. Here are the products used in this cute mini card:

  • Whale of a Tail DSP
  • Whisper White card base + belly band
  • Details Bands Dies – oval in Whisper White cs
  • Celebration Labels and Dies for the larger portion of the banner, Pacific Point cs
  • So Much Happy stamp set – balloons, fussy cut
  • A Grand Kid stamp set – front banner sentiment
  • Little Treats stamp set – inside sentiment
  • Pear Pizzazz and Pacific Point inks

Let’s see if I can tell you how to do this…

  • card stock base (Whisper White) is 3 x 6 scored at 1 1/2 and 4 1/2 on long side. Burnish well.
  • DSP panel (Whale of a Time) is 3 x 6. Mark center on the long side, at the top & bottom lightly with pencil. Fold from the top left to center bottom making a triangle – burnish and open. Fold from the left bottom to the center top making another triangle – burnish and open. Fold left portion to center, as in step one – burnish and open.
  • Do the same on the right side: right top to center bottom making a triangle, burnish and open. Right bottom to center top making a triangle, burnish and open. Right to center, burnish and open. It will look like picture #4 above even though it isn’t attached to anything yet. 😊
  • Cut a panel in Whisper White for inside sentiment, 2″ square. Stamp the sentiment from Little Treats stamp set in Pacific Point ink. Then stamp the party favors in Pear Pizzazz ink. Remember to stamp ON THE DIAGONAL. Adhere to the DSP.
Mini Gate Fold
#3
  • Now adhere adhere the DSP to the Whisper White card base: triangle on the left first making certain it is al the way to the edge. With the papers flat, adhere the center diagonal square then the right triangle.
  • Belly band: 1″ x about 7″ to go around in Whisper White, DSP is 3/4″ x about 7. Adhere the papers together and wrap around card. Secure in front with Tear n Tape. It should slide easily on and off the card.
  • Cut banner in Pacific Point using the smallest Celebration Labels & Dies. Put dimensionals on back and attach to belly band where it overlaps.
  • Stamp the banner sentiment from A Grand Kid in Pacific Point – off to the right side to allow room for the balloons. Cut with the oval from Detailed bands dies. Adhere with liquid glue to the Pacific Point banner.
  • Stamp balloons from the So Much Happy stamp set: one in Pacific point and one in Pear pizzazz. Fussy cut both. Adhere the larger with liquid glue and the smaller with a dimensional. Slide over the card and bingo this cute little mini is ready for giving.

I love this. Mini cards are just a different kind of treat and this one is extra special cuz it’s a Gate Fold.

That does it for today. Think about shopping during SU! Bonus Days. Items for this card are listed in the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog which goes live to customers 4 Aug. AND the 2020 – 2021Annual catalog. Don’t have a catalog or a demonstrator? Then talk to me and we can fix that 😁

SU! Wishes and Wonder Bundle

Hello… muggy day here even though it is 67 degrees. Of course it is not quite 5 AM either. Doomed to be a hot one. Yesterdays card was more ornate ~ todays is layered and more country, but still Christmas. It is a CASE of a card on the back of the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog.

Wishes & Wonder bundle
#1

Gosh, the picture is kinda dark… but I think you can see the many layers. I knew I wanted to play with the papers in ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP pack and I knew I wanted to use the stag again. I have used him before and he is so elegant. Anyway, staring me in the face was the back of the catalog and I just went for it… There are so many great dies in the North Pole Wonder Dies. I haven’t quite played with all of them yet, but it’s definitely in the cards 🙂

I started with the die that looks like a tag and die cut two of those, then went to the DSP again for a coordinating paper for the back drop. Love this plaid! I then die cut a single long leaf stem in Shaded Spruce, then played around with the ‘spray’ stamp. That I stamped in Crumb Cake on Whisper White and die cut with the coordinating circle. Notice how the tag has those jagged edges – like pinking shears? So does this particular circle! Gosh, I could go off on a tangent about pinking shears… they bring back so MANY memories. But.. the stag – one gorgeous animal… die cut from Brushed Metallic cs, not as shiny and bold as gold foil. I began layering, didn’t have papers cut yet ~ this off-center look is kinda fun, and then I put the tags together and off-centered them so both showed. They HAD to have a string ~ I found the 1/16″ Gold Cord from the Wonder of the Season Combo Pack and it brought in another element of sparkle that I like. OK, time to cut papers and put things together… and you can see the layering, all adhered with liquid glue. I debated with a banner, wasn’t sure I wanted anything more, but the card needed it…. stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink on a Whisper White scrap, added dimenionals and the card front was complete.  Card cuts are listed at the end of this post.

The inside was easy. I wanted it simple and stamped the sleigh from the Wishes & Wonder stamp set in Real Red on Whisper White. Adhered that to the inside and bingo, the card was done.

Wishes & Wonder
#2

While the sleigh was out I stamped it on the envelope front n- continuing with the Real Red ink. The envelope flap got another piece of the ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP. And that was it!

Let me talk to you about the Wishes & Wonder bundle just a bit… when you purchase a bundle (stamp set with coordinating dies) it is automatically 10% off. And all the products I used in today’s project are part of the Wonder of The Season Suite. When you purchase a suite, it is also less than if you purchased every item individually. So, what are you waiting for? Oh yes… you can order any of these items as a suite or individually, beginning 4 Aug. They are listed in the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog which goes live to customers 4 Aug. Don’t have a catalog or a demonstrator? Then talk to me and we can fix that 😁

SU! Triple Shutter Card with Snowflake Splendor Suite

Hi Everyone – lots of new items to share with you today… products. from the Snowflake Splendor Suite AND using those to make a Triple Shutter Card! First of all, I have never made one of these before and was concerned it would be extremely difficult. It wasn’t… It did take a bit of figuring out, which DSP to go where and making certain I had the die cuts correct. But it was super fun and I felt a sense of accomplishment after. Here’s the card…

Snowflake Splendor in Triple Shutter card
#1

Notice how the center panel is folded mountain, valley. The upper and lower panels are just the opposite: valley, mountain. valley – three folds. Burnishing the score lines in the proper direction is one of the most important aspects of this fun fold. Notice too, that where the sentiment banners are, there is no fold. Those papers are also the same and form what I would call a ‘T’. This will help you if you can remember this when scoring and putting the papers together. Here’s another picture – a flat one that shows off every panel.

And here’s a top–down photo.

  • Pacific Point cs – background for all DSP
  • Whisper White scraps
  • Pacific Point ink
  • Detailed Bands Dies
  • Poinsettia Petals stamp set
  • a retired item… Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper – could use Silver Foil Sheets

Basic directions:

  • Score cs base as mentioned earlier at 2, 4, 8, 10 on the long side. Card stock base for this card is Seaside Spray.
  • Turn paper to short side and place at 1 1/2″ mark: cut from first score line to bottom score line. Turn paper over, still on the short side, place at 1 1/2″ mark again and cut from first score line to bottom score line.
  • Burnish top and bottom “strips” so they are valley, mountain, valley
  • Burnish middle strip at second score line, mountain; then third score line valley. Do not burnish the middle strip first or last score lines.
  • Cut Pacific Point cs to dimensions listed below and adhere to appropriate panels
  • Cut DSP to dimensions listed below: there are 3 designs used from the Snowflake Splendor DSP. There are listed below as a, b, c. Adhere to appropriate panels.

SU! Poinsettia Place Suite and Gatefold Card

Hello… Yesterday was a glorious day – started out with an early morning sail. It was perfect – 8-9 mph winds, no power boats to make us rock. We were the only sailboat. on the river… After sailing, we came home, had a hearty breakfast, walked the dog, then I settled in to create this very cool card…

Poinsettia Place Suite
Gate Fold
#1

It is made with several items from the Poinsettia Place Suite of products found on pg 16 of the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini catalog. Don’t have a catalog??? I can fix that 😁. If you don’t have a demonstrator, let’s connect before the catalog goes live to customers Aug 4.

Back to the card and the details…

  • 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Soft Sea Foam, scored at 2 1/8 from both ends on the long side
  • Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper 1 7/8 x 5 1/4 (x2). Adhere to side panels of the card base
  • 2 7/8″ square of Soft Sea Foam cs
  • Square Doily adhered to the square with a swipe of Stampin Seal just in the middle
  • Poinsettia Dies: Die cut the 3 poinsettia pieces and with a sponge dauber, gently brush along each petal edge with Blushing Bride ink, and sometimes swipe in the center of the bracht as well. Adhere together with liquid glue. Adhere this sweet Beaded Pearls to the center. These are such COOL dies… one portion embosses the bracht while another portion die cuts – running these through the die cutting machine at the same time…
  • Stamp the leaf outline/ veins in Garden Green ink using the Poinsettia Petals stamp set. There are two sizes of leaves – I did two large (one I used on the inside of the card) and two of the smaller.
  • Stamp the leaf centers with Soft Sea Foam ink – again two options in the Poinsettia Petals stamp set. I used the slimmer version on the smaller leaf and the broader version on the larger leaf. Die cut the leaves with the outline die. Attach to the backside of the poinsettia with liquid glue, then adhere the completed poinsettia to the doily/ card stock piece.
  • For the inside… Whisper White panel 4 x 5 1/4… stamp the two sentiments in Garden Green ink from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set. Gorgeous fonts! Adhere to the inside with liquid glue.
  • Attach the additional leaf to the inside of the right panel and your card is complete!!!

  • The envelope got some special treatment:
    • Again from the Poinsettia Place Suite is Poinsettia Place DSP – cut a 2 1/4 x 6 piece for the envelope flap. Adhere with liquid glue, trim.
    • The front of the envelope got a fun berry stamp from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set, stamped in Crumb Cake ink. Color the berries with Dark So Saffron Blends marker. TIP: be sure to put a scrap piece in your envelope when colored with the blends so it does not bleed through to the back of the envelope.

    • Whisper White 4 1/2 x 6 1/2, 1 x 6 1/2 ( x 2), 1 x 4 1/2 (x 2)
    • 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP (Cinnamon Cider) 4 x 6 (x 2), 3/4 x 6 (x 2), 3/4 x 4 (x 2)
    • Adhere DSP to Whisper White then adhere to the Cinnamon Cider top and sides
    • Decorate: Create a belly band & bouquet
      •  cut a 1 x 12 strip of coordinating DSP. I used World of Good SDSP. Wrap around entire box. Since this is about 1/2″ short of reaching around the box, adds a strip of Thick Whisper White to pull ends together on the backside and on top. See photo…

        Sides of box #4
      • Cut a panel from Whisper White using the Timeless Label Punch and adhere over the top of the two strips. This creates your belly band.
      • Belly Band for box #3
        • Stamp the daisies from the Daisy Lane stamp set, 2 medium and 2 large using Bumblebee ink and Whisper White cs. Punch out using the coordinating Daisy Medium and Large punches. Curl the petals with a bone folder and adhere together with liquid glue.
        • Using the Forever Flourishing Dies, cut out two leaves, one from Just Jade and one from Whisper White. Adhere with liquid glue to the Timeless Label punch panel.
        • Adhere the daisy over the leaves. Tie a bow with the Whisper White 1/2″ Faux Linen Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Combo Pack and adhere with a glue dot. Slip this carefully over the box… DONE! Easy, right?!

SU! Flowers For Every Season Memories and More Card Pack, Envelopes and Cards

Hi Everyone. Ever have one of those nights where sleep is over at 3 AM? It doesn’t happen to me often but it certainly did last night/ this morning… I’ll probably need a nap when I finish this post! I had fun creating five cards with the Memories and More Card Pack, Cards and Envelopes and made five pretty quickly. Because the Cards and Envelopes are all the 2020-2022 In Colors, I wanted to do one of each. I layer, it’s just what I do, so I’ll list all the products used after the pictures.
