SU! Feels Like Frost Fun Fold

Helllloooo – it’s Wacky Wednesday… you know, hump day, middle of the week and all that. Today’s card features a W-Fold using Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP as the headline.  W-Folds are so much fun, just notching things up out of the ordinary.

Feels Like Frost W-Fold
#1

And here’s the ‘innerds’…

Feels Like Frost, inside
#2

I used the Love of Leaves Bundle to highlight the leaf image on the DSP. And here’s the ‘how to’..

  • To the Whisper White card base (4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2), adhere Highland Heather card stock (3 7/8 x 5 1/8), then a layer of the Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP (3 3/4 x 5) – both with liquid glue.
  • Again with Whisper White, stamp the sentiment in Rococo Rose ink. Die cut with Stitched Rectangles Dies. Approximate finished size of die cut is 2 7/8 x 7/8.
  • With Rococo Rose card stock die cut three leaves (see photos above for reference) using the Stitched Leaves Dies. These emboss and die cut at the same time!  Love this look :O)
  • Adhere the longer leaf to the sentiment panel, just the bottom of the leaf. Put dimensionals on the remainder of the leaf and on the sentiment panel. Adhere to the card front and voila – front is complete!
  • Oh… I did add 3 Elegant Faceted Gems to the front and a Linen Thread bow.

For the inside…

#3

Here I used Stitched Leaves Dies, Love of Leaves stamp set and Celebrate Tidings stamp set for the inside sentiments. I ran two panels of Whisper White (4 x 5 1/4) through the Tasteful
Textiles 3D embossing folder and adhered these to both sides of the inside of the card. Details of the W-Fold…

  • Cut a length of Whisper White to create the Z-Fold – 1 3/4 x 11: score at 2 3/4, 5 1/2, 8 1/4. Fold and burnish: valley, mountain, valley. The mountain is in the center of the card.
  • Cut 4 panels of Highland Heather card stock – 2 3/4 x 2
  • Cut 2 panels of 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP in Purple Posey – 2 1/2 x 1 3/4
  • Cut 2 panels of Whisper White for dry embossing – 4 x 51/4

More info for the W-Fold…

#4
  • Adhere the DSP to 2 panels of Highland Heather with liquid glue.
  • Adhere leaf with liquid glue as well
  • On the two white panels, stamp the leaf of choice in Rococo Rose ink, stamping off at least once, then stamp your sentiment in Highland Heather ink.
  • Adhere completed White panels to Highland Heather panels with liquid glue.
  • Adhere the scored Whisper White strip to the inside of the card, centering top to bottom and to the edge of the embossed panel – adhering JUST THE END PANELS.
  • Now adhere the decorated panels thusly: right end panel first, then lay next panel directly on top and close the card adhering it with liquid glue. Complete other two panels in same way – laying one on top of the other and closing the card. This keeps the panels in direct alignment.

For the final touches, I added 3 Elegant Faceted Gems to each of the two end panels and covered the leaves with Wink of Stella. I also covered the small leaf on the sentiment panel with Wink of Stella. It doesn’t show in the photos, but it adds a lot to the completed card.

The envelope..

Feels Like Frost W-Fold
#5
  • Cover the envelope flap with strips from the same Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP and the 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 in Purple Posey.
  • Stamp a leaf from the Love of Leaves stamp set on the envelope front in stamped off Rococo Rose. Cover with Wink of Stella.

YAY – beautiful card and it is complete!

 

SU! Celebtate Sunflowers + Love of Leaves Bundles

Helllooooo… today is what I’m calling Terrific Tuesday. Why? Just because 😁 Here is a card created for sunshine and fall using Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP.

Celebrate Sunflowers + Love of Leaves Bundles
#1`

Is this sunflower gorgeous or what!!! How did I do that? The stamp itself does most of the work, I simply added a variety of inks.

  • Inks used for this stunning sunflower… Mango Melody, Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Cajun Craze. The Cinnamon Cider is mostly around the inside rim, with the Cajun Craze in the very center. The other colors are randomly daubed on with… a sponge dauber.
  • With the Sunflowers Dies, I die cut the overlay from Mango Melody card stock and layered it on the inked flower with dimensionals. This gives it a wonderful 3-D effect.
  • I cut a panel of Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP and adhered it to a slightly larger panel of Early Espresso with liquid glue.
  • With the Whisper White panel, I ran it through the die cutting machine  with a die from the Stitched Leaves Dies that does not cut, but embosses these straight lines. It creates wonderful texture. hmmmm – can’t see it in the above photo…
  • I adhered this white panel to a card base of Mango Melody with liquid glue
  • I die cut three leaves using dies from Stitched Leaves dies – out of Granny Apple Green card stock
  • I had lying on my desk a wheat sheaf cut from the Sunflowers Dies – cut from  Crumb Cake card stock and lightly colored with Cajun Craze ink using a sponge dauber.
  • Assembly… the white panel is already on the Mango Melody card base. Adhere the Plaid Tidings 6×6 / Early Espresso panel with liquid glue. Attach the sunflower with dimensionals, then add the two lower leaves with liquid glue, then the third with dimensionals, slipping them under the flower. Add the wheat sheaf with liquid glue. Add the bow (using Gingham Ribbon in Bumblebee) with a glue dot.
  • The last step is the sentiment panel… I stamped the sentiment from Stitched Leaves stamp set in Early Espresso ink, then punched it out using the Rectangular Postage Punch. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. To give it some glam, I added several 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots and the card front was done.

Texture, glam, dimension – wow! Love this card!

The inside was super easy –

  • I stamped a leaf from the Sunflower Dies using the same process as the sunflower… using a sponge dauber and various inksGarden Green along the stem line, then Cajun Craze and Bumblebee. I used the outline die to cut it out.
  • I adhered a strip of adhesive sheet to the back of Mango Melody card stock then used a leaf die to die cut. Because it had adhesive on the back, I simply removed the backing and covered the already stamped leaf. This is the upper leaf.
  • With a scrap of Granny Apple Green card stock, I die cut another leaf from the Stitched Leaves Dies. This leaf has both embossing and is die cut! The same leaf that is on the front of the card.
  • Adhere both leaves with liquid glue to a panel of Whisper White and adhere this to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

SU! Dove of Hope Bundle

Hello again… I think you are going to love this card… it’s a slimline card made with the Dove of Hope Bundle and Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper. Gosh this is pretty … velvetty-like on vellum.

Dove of Hope Bundle
#1

This definitely non-traditional Christmas colors, but I’m really pleased with the way it turned out. Let’s talk about how we did this…

  • Thick Whisper White card base – slimline fashion
  • Layer of Blushing Bride cs adhered with liquid glue to the card front
  • Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper layer adhered with liquid glue HINT: glue in strategic spots on the backside of the ‘plush’ where the plush comes together.
  • Stamp the dove with Smokey Slate ink onto Whisper Whiter cs.
  • Using the Detailed Dove Dies from this exquisite bundle, die cut the stamped dove.
  • Die cut the ‘olive branch’ out of Mint Macaron cs.
  • Adhere the ribbon – Snowflake Splendor Ribbon – using snail
  • Adhere the dove over the top of the ribbon with dimensionals.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Dove of Hope stamp set, again in Smokey Slate ink, on a Whisper White strip. Punch the ends using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. 
  • Using the Ornate Borders Dies and a 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ scrap of Blushing Bride, cut a decorative border. Add to the back of the sentiment banner with liquid glue and trim for proper length. Adhere banner with dimensionals to the card front.

For the inside…

Dove of Hope Bundle #2
  • Adhere Blushing Bride cs to the card inside
  • To a Whisper White panel, stamp the sentiment from Dove of Hope stamp set in Smokey Slate ink.
  • Over the top of this stamp the larger ‘olive branch’ with stamped off twice Mint Macaron ink.
  • Adhere this panel to the card inside and the card is complete.
Dove of Hope Bundle
#3

Now for the envelope… first we create the envelope 😊 – easy peasy

  • Using a full 8 1/2 x 11 Blushing Bride cs, score on the long side @ 2 1/2″ & 6 1/2″. Score on the short side 1 1/2″ & 10 1/2″. Burnish all score lines.
  • Remove the corners by cutting along the score lines.

On the 1 1/2″ end, use the Detailed Trio Punch, round the corners. Your piece should look like this…

Slimline envelope #4
    • Fold in the 1/2 end, add Tape n Tape or liquid glue and fold over the 2″ length, adhering it.
    • Add liquid glue to the long side and  fold the 2 1/2″ length over it. Your envelope is created!
    • Now decorate… I stamped the sentiment from the Dove of Hope stamp set in Smokey Slate ink, then added the snowflake from the same stamp set near the sentiment and several on the envelope flap, also in Smokey Slate ink.

SU! Snow Wonder Stamp Set/ Dies

Tuesday, this musty be Wonderful Wednesday 😁… hee hee hee. And… time for another Christmas card! I know, I need to make some cards using items from the 2020 Annual Catalog, but Christmas, well, I can’t seem to get enough. This is such an EASY card, you could make several using papers from any of the Designer Series Papers and make it fall themed or a thank you or a birthday or even a sympathy card, make it masculine or super feminine. Here goes…

Can you see how you could remake this card? Another post 🙂 The Designer Paper used here is called Heartwarming Hugs DSP. One of the greatest parts of SU! (and I know I have said this before, but..) is how they coordinate. The pack of DSP can so easily be interchanged without thinking too hard. Three strips were cut and adhered to a panel of Whisper White cs and that was adhered to the Pear Pizzazz card base – all with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from Snow Wonder stamp set on a Whisper White scrap with Pear Pizzazz ink then I die cut two banners using the Snow Time Dies, one in Pear Pizzazz and the stamped one in Whisper White. The sentiment banner got dimensionals and placed on top of the Pear Pizzazz banner. I took a length of the Double Stitched Satin Ribbon, 3/8″ Real Red, and looped it, adhering together with glue dots. Once I had it in place on the card front, I cut another length and put it crosswise. The banner went over this with dimesnionals on the back. I felt the front needed something more and used the All The Trimmings Embellishments, Real Red and popped them on the banner. Since they are self adhesive, easy peasy.

For the inside I took two snowflake embossing dies from the Snow Time Dies and ran them through the die cut machine. I took a sponge dauber and very lightly rubbed over them to show them off a bit more. I’m not sure the picture shows it very well. If you enlarge the photo, you can see the snowflakes. :l

Snow Time Dies – embossed

For the envelope, I used several scraps from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP and adhered them to the envelope flap. And voila! Quick, easy, fun!

SU! StitchedfStars

Hi there! It’s Terrific Tuesday – why not? We can make our day terrific, or not, and this is what I choose – terrific. Let’s go for it…

Today’s card is made with a die set that came out last year called Stitched Stars Dies. For the inside I used a stamp set from the new Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog called Snow Wonder. They worked beautifully together.

Stitched Stars Dies

This is very 3 D as the large star has three dimensionals in its middle. Tis The Season 6×6 DSP  is the centerpiece for this card. I love the contrast of another panel of the same DSP in the background. So let’s talk particulars… Die cut the 6 stars – I happened to use the same paper for all the stars and die cut them all at the same time. Then I took the largest star and scored it…from the center, score to all five points then score again from the center to each of the inner points of the star. Fold along the pointy score lines just with your hands and press firmly. Then fold in the opposite direction (valley) each of side score lines. it creates mountain/ valley creases. Before adhering, let’s prepare the card front panels.

Cut a panel of the Tis The Season 6×6 DSP that coordinates/ contrasts with the die cut stars. Behind this is a panel of coordinating cs – Cherry Cobbler. Both have been adhered to the card front with liquid glue. Now you are ready to place the stars. (Card cuts may be found at the end of this post.)

Put dimesnionals in the center of the star – I stacked three – and place on the front of the card panel. Place the other stars where you desire. I cut mini dimensionals in half to put on three of the other stars, stacking two of them together just with liquid glue. Only the smallest star was adhered to the card front with liquid glue. The three stars on dimesnionals also got a Real Red gem from Wonderful Gems pack. I felt the large star needed something so searched my embellishments and found – drum roll here – Star Designer Elements – and placed one in the large star center. Voila – card front is complete!

For the inside, I adhered a panel of Cherry Cobbler cs to the Thick Whisper White card base with liquid glue. With regular Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment in the center with Cherry Cobbler ink and the Snow Wonder stamp Set. I then stamped the trees, stamping off twice, over the sentiment with Garden Green ink. It’s important to stamp off at least twice so this delicate sentiment shows through the trees. Adhere to the inside of the card. Done, done.

For the envelope I used a coordinating red panel of Tis The Season 6×6 DSP for the envelope flap.

Stitched Stars Dies

So what do you think? So simply done but a very effective standout card. I do hope you will try this and share your results with me.

SU! Tree Angles/ Stitched Rectangles #2

Hello again – nice to have you visit! We have had a couple of cool days here in NJ and I LIKE IT! There have been some days recently that the humidity and heat have made it difficult to breathe. Of course the sun isn’t up yet, but it’s 64 degrees… my kind of weather. It’s interesting, I attended an ‘in person’ meeting Wed. evening – masks during the meeting, 6-8′ apart, ZOOM going for those unable to attend in person and when we spoke we brought down the mask – all this to say one of the gentleman in the group said – ‘I’m praying for normalcy’. That seems so long ago… I want to be able to hug my grandkids and daughters so badly, but for their sake (and mine) I’m not doing that. And you know, it changes our relationship somehow… I don’t like that, but it does. Maybe that’s why I’m hung up on Christmas cards – hoping that by then they can actually come in the house and I can hug them tight… Guess I’m trying analyze this compulsion of mine right now – hmmm.OK – on with it – today’s card. I wanted to play with the Tree Angle stamps with the coordinating Stitched Rectangles again and here’s what I did. Card cuts are listed at the end of this post.

Tree Angle Card #2

Look at those cute trees! So – confession… I didn’t really KNOW what I was going to do, I simply sat down to play. I wanted to do these trees, didn’t know what I was going to do with them. I stamped the smaller one in Real Red and the larger one in Shaded Spruce then die cut them with the coordinating Stitched Triangles. They needed stars – so I pulled out my Stitched Stars Dies and Balmy Blue Glimmer paper. For the smaller tree, the star is adhered with liquid glue. For the larger tree it’s adhered with a dimensional cut down to fit. I began rifling through DSP and remembered the Feels Like Frost 6×6 Specialty DSP. I cut it down a bit and placed the trees but did not adhere them yet. I decided a sentiment heat embossed in white would look really pretty, so that’s what I did – and it’s from the Tree Angle stamp set. Now that I think about it, it would also be pretty to heat emboss the whole piece with clear embossing powder to make it sparkle. Another time! Now that the sentiment was on, I adhered the larger tree with liquid glue and the smaller one with dimensionals. This was adhered to a panel of Pretty Peacock, then put on dimensionals and added to a Real Red card base.

The inside was super easy… I took one of the dies from the Stitched Rectangles Dies and simply laid it across the bottom of a Whisper White panel and die cut the strip. It created these fun triangles all in a row! I adhered this to another panel of Pretty Peacock cs with liquid glue and then right onto the inside of the Real Red card base. simplicity at it’s best!

Stitched Rectangles, inside

For the envelope, I simply ran the flap through the Winter Snow embossing folder and voila! the card was complete.

SU! Ornamental Envelopes

Hi Everyone – have you visited the UPDATED SU! site yet? Oh my goodness – it’s wonderfully exciting…the techs have worked miracles! AND the new Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog is now live… see that right here…08.01.20_HAPPENING_NOW_AD_CATALOG_GOLIVE_ENG

OK, I have two cards for you today, both using the Ornamental Envelopes stamp set with coordinating dies.

Ornamental Envelopes #1 a
Ornamental Envelopes Card #2 a

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really appreciate how different and yet how similar these two cards are… similar due to colors mostly, and different as different elements were used from the stamp set.

Card #1:

  • stamp the ornaments using Versamark ink on Whisper White panel, sprinkle with silver embossing powder then heat emboss to set.
  • Once embossing has cooled sufficiently, color with Stampin’ Blends: Light Misty Moonlight, Lt Highland Heather, Lt Granny Apple Green, and Lt Melon Mambo
  • Add a pearl to the one ornament and color with the Lt Misty Moonlight Blends
  • Adhere this panel to Pear Pizzazz with liquid glue
  • Adhere both of these to Silver Foil sheets with dimensionals
  • Place but DO NOT ADHERE on the Pear Pizzazz card base.
  • Using your Stamparatus, place the ‘Merry” sentiment and the ornament in the appropriate position, remove the ornament panel and stamp with Versamark ink. sprinkle with silver embossing powder and heat set. Again, once cooled, color the ornament with Lt Misty Moonlight and Lt Melon Mambo Blends
  • Adhere the ornament panel and your card front is complete :O)

For the inside:

  • Stamp the sentiment on a Whisper White panel with Melon Mambo ink. The sentiment comes from Festive Corners stamp set (an awesome versatile stamp set I might add!)
  • Because I colored the single ornament on the card front with Blends, the colors bled through – what to do? Cover the offending panel with DSP – this comes from Heartwarming Hugs DSP and coordinates perfectly!
    Ornamental Envelopes – card inside using Festive Corners

    The envelope got the same DSP on the flap and then using a die from the coordinating dies, create this incredibly beautiful edge. Can you see that cuteness?

    The card is complete… yay!

    Card cuts for Card #1

  • Whisper White: 2 1/2 x 4 1/2, 4 x 5 1/4
  • Pear Pizzazz 2 3/4 x 4 3/4, 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Silver Foil sheet 3 x 5
  • Heartwarming Hugs DSP 4x 5 1/4 + 2 1/4 x 6 for envelope flap

OH PS… I’ll share directions for Card #2 tomorrow :O) 😏

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.

#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! has some awesome items in their 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and a real bonus going on now – called BONUS DAYS. For every purchase of $50 from now until 3 Aug. you will receive from SU! by email, a $5 coupon that is redeemable 4-31 Aug. Such a deal!

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…

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.
