SU! Daisy Lane, Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper

Hello again… can you believe it is Thursday already? My goodness this week has flown ~ at least for me. Today’s card is full of bright colors and just says ‘happy” all over it. I’m excited no share it with you… it uses some products from last years catalog and some from this years 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.

Daisy Lane stamp set
Large and Medium Daisy Punch
Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper and 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP
#1

Bright, cheerful, it is just F-U-N. Created on the Note Cards/ Envelopes pack, this card is smaller than a regular size card. Finished it measures 3 1/2 x 5, a perfect size.

  • Layer Magenta Madness 3 3/8 x 4 7/8 onto the note card front
  • Layer the Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP 3 1/4 x 4 3/4
  • Layer one of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty DSP, but on the white side. Adhere with Stampin Seal
  • Stamp two large daisies with Bumblebee from the Daisy Lane stamp set and punch with the large daisy punch.
  • Do the same with the Medium daisy: stamp 2 in Bumblebee, punch 2
  • Gently curl the petals with a bone folder, going up
  • Adhere together with liquid glue
  • Adhere to the Forever Gold Laser-
  • Cut Specialty Paper with two glue dots. Put Basic Pearls in the center ~ I used five
  • Tie a bow using the 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon in Bumblebee and adhere with a glue dot. Your card front is complete.

The best part about this card is that the inside could be absolutely anything you wanted it to be: get well, thinking of you, you got this, just about anything. Since a shower card was requested, that’s what I did… made it a shower card.

Cute, right?

  • Stamp the umbrella in Magenta Madness.
  • Stamp the flowers in Bumblebee
  • Now go back and stamp the sentiment

SU! Playful Alphabet Dies and Z Fold

Hello… last baby card I promise! Made with the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP and the Playful Alphabet Dies, this is another fun fold card. Here ’tis…

Playful Alphabet Dies
Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP
#1

The card base is Purple Posy 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2. Burnish the 5 1/2 as though the card were going flat, then fold back the 2 3/4 scored panel – this makes a z – therefore… ta da… a Z Fold Card. Cut a panel of Coastal Cabana 2 3/8 x 4. Adhere a panel of the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP cut to 2 x 3 7/8. Wrap a length of the Silver/ Misty Moonlight ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack three times around and tie in knot. Hold in place on the back with tape. Put dimesnionals on this panel back and set aside.

Adhere Foam Adhesive Sheet strip (about 1 x 2 1/2) to a piece of coordinating DSP then die cut the letters B-O-Y using the Playful Alphabet Dies. Adhere to the card front by simply removing the backing on the Foam Adhesive strip! Now adhere this completed panel to the front of your Z-Fold. Add three 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots – these are Just Jade.

For the inside… Coastal Cabana 4 x 5 1/4 then Whisper White 3 3/4 x 5, then add a coordinating strip 1/4″ from right end. Voila! The envelope got the same DSP adhered to the flap. Baby card #5 is done…

SU!Tasteful Labels Dies, Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP

Hello again… baby card #4. So different from the other three and still from the very same DSP! Love this… and this may be my favorite so far…

Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP
Tasteful Labels Dies
#1

I love how this turned out, maybe because it’s bright, cheerful and has several coordinating colors. The base of the card is Thick Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2. Cut a panel of Purple Posy 4 x 5 1/4 and run through your die cutting/ embossing folder using the gorgeous and very versatile Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. Adhere with Stampin Seal to the card front. TIP: When adhering embossed panels I find it helpful to use Stampin Seal. I find it covers better somehow and I just prefer the way it holds the panel. 

The next layer is Coastal Cabana 4 1/4 x 3 1/4. Then cut three panels of the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP that coordinate and compliment each other. These are cut 1 1/2 x 3, 1 x 3, and 1 1/4 x 3. TIP: Adhere the two end pieces first and the center one last. This allows for perfect centering of all panels. Cut a length of Night of Navy 1/2″ Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon from the Boho Indigo Product Medley. (This gorgeous ribbon – just sayin’) Know where you want the ribbon to end and adhere that section with Stampin Seal. Then wrap the end of the ribbon to the back of the card creating a loop. Adhere to the back with Stampin Seal. I love the way this looks, as though it is creating a banner :O). Put dimensionals on this panel and set aside.

Die cut a circle from Coastal Cabana with the Layering Circles Dies. Die cut another circle using the Tasteful Labels Dies (there is such a collections of cool labels in this die set!) from Whisper White. Stamp the sentiment with Night of Navy from the Best Year stamp set. Adhere this to the Coastal Cabana circle with liquid glue. Add three Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins. Put dimensionals on this circle duo (top and bottom only) and adhere over the ribbon.

Take this Coastal Cabana panel and attach to the card front about 1/2″ from the right edge. Your card front is now complete. Again, the inside is super duper easy: layer Purple Posey 4 x 5 1/4 and Whisper White 3 3/4 x 5; add a strip of coordinating DSP; adhere to the card inside and the card is done. The envelope gets a strip 2 1/4 x 6 adhered to the flap and trimmed. Done, done, done.

Not for nothin’… today, Jul 2, SU! Demonstrators around the world will be ordering from the Aug- Dec Mini Catalog. This used to be called the Holiday catalog but SU! decided to have a longer sales period for this cattie and renamed it. Smart, right? Anyway – I can’t share anything just yet, but will soon! Keep your eyes peeled 😜 for more new stuff!

SU! Playful Alphabet Dies Fun Fold

Hi Y’all… I’m on a roll here with the baby cards AND the Playful Alphabet Dies AND the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP. My goal is five cards with papers all from the same stash but totally different style, fold, etc. So far I think I have been successful. Here is today’s card ~ a Gate Fold

Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP

Gaten Fold
#1

After looking at it (again and again!), I think it needs another layer behind the banner ~ may have to do that… For the time being, here’s how this card is made…

Calypso Coral cs cut to 4 1/4 x 11 then scored at 2 3/4 and 8 1/4. Add a layer of Coastal Cabana cs to each front panel, 2 5/8 x 4 1/8. (You could easily make this 2 1/2 x 4). Cut two additional panels, this time in Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP. These two panels were each 2 x 4. Adhere, centering, to the side panels. Cut a label using the Tasteful Labels Dies. (Gosh, I use these so much – they are very versatile). With the Playful Alphabet Dies cut the letters B-O-Y from Whisper White and adhere to the label with liquid glue.Adhere the Coastal Cabana label only on the left front panel. Add five Playing with Patterns Resin Dots and your card front is done.

The inside is easy peasy… Coastal Cabana layer 4 x 5 1/4, then Whisper White 3 3/4 x 5. Add a strip of the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP that coordinates and bingo, the card is complete!

The envelope…  Simply adhere a 2 14 x 6 panel of the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP. Voila! Card #3 in this ‘baby bundle’ for our daughter to give as a gift to the new mother. In case you missed the last two posts, here are photos of those…

SU! Waterfall Card with Playful Alphabet Dies

Hi Everyone! Yesterday I told you my task is to create several baby cards for my daughter’s girlfriend.Today’s card is another to add to that gift set and it uses the Playful Alphabet Dies AND the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP. I did absolutely no stamping on this project but it is a new fun type card I haven’t made before. It’s called a waterfall card ~ here ’tis…

Playful Alphabet Dies
#1

This is pretty easy and I’ll talk you through it then do a very short video of how it works. The card base is Purple Posey 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4. Cut Misty Moonlight 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 and adhere to the card front. Cut a panel of Playing with Patterns DSP 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere to the Misty Moonlight. Cut a Misty Moonlight strip 1 1/2 x 8 and score at 1 1/2, 2 1/4, 3, and 3 3/4. Burnish.  Cut four (4) 1 1/2 squares out of Bumblebee cs. Cut three (3)  1 3/8 squares out of coordinating Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP. Cut one (1) 1 3/8 square out of Whisper White. With your Playful Alphabet Dies, die cut the letters B-O-Y out of that Whisper White Square.  This was a tight squeeze but it did work. Adhere this Whisper White to one of the yellow squares. From the die cuts, I chose to adhere the letter B, the middle of the O and left the Y to show through. Adhere this panel to the square on the 1 1/2 x 8 strip, JUST UNDER THE FOLD LINE (not on it!).Place a strip of Tear n Tape to the bottom of this panel on the back side of the Misty moonlight. Adhere the next Bumblebee square with Tear n Tape JUST UNDER THE NEXT SCORE LINE.  Continue adhering the last two squares in this same manner.

The purpose of adhering the squares just under the score line is to allow them to ‘fall’ into place as you pull the strip. Make sense?  Here are individual pictures of the placement.

Take a peek at this video. OOPS! Trouble with the video… I’ll let you know when it works. Here it is!

Cut a strip of Misty Moonlight 1/2 x 4 and a coordinating 3/8 x 4 strip of Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP. Adhere the DSP to the Misty moonlight. Remember the Tear n Tape at the bottom of the panel with the word B-O-Y? Adhere to the front of this strip, in the center,  and bottom of the strip. Now lay flat on your card but do not yet adhere. Take a peek at this picture… the long blue section is UNDERNEATH the strip while the B-O-Y piece is adhered to the bottom of the cross strip. Get it?

Once you determine the correct placement of the waterfall/ cross strip, adhere Tear n Tape to the cross strip but not across the waterfall strip. The waterfall needs to slide through the opening smoothly but there should not be too much room for sideways movement. Punch a hole about 1/4″ up from the bottom of the pull strip and insert a length of ribbon  – probably 7″  before folding in half.  This becomes your cute “pull” for the waterfall. I used Daffodil Delight 1/4″ as I forgot I had Bumblebee 1/4″, but it worked!

Now do the inside… super simple… Misty Moonlight 4 x 5 1/4, Whisper White 3 7/8 x 5 3/8. A
dd a strip of coordinating  Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP and adhere to the inside.

The envelope flap has coordinating Playing with Patterns DSP and that’s it! Voila! Such a FUN CARD to make. I hope you try it…

SU! Pattern Play Stamp Set and Playful Alphabet Dies

Hi Everyone! Ever have one of those mornings when you can’t sleep anymore? Yep, this was one of those. A little after 4 AM and my eyes were wide open. What to do? (as if there was any question!) Make a card!!! Yesterday I was talking with our daughter and her neighbor just had a baby boy. I said I would make some cards she could give her friend ~ and here’s the first one.

Foam Adhesive Sheets are the best for doing these letters – it was so easy… just adhere the foam adhesive to the back of your card stock, lay on your die cut piece and run it through your die cutting machine. I ran it through twice cause I wanted to be certain it cut through. And here’s a TIP: only adhere the foam adhesive to your designated area for cutout to avoid waste.

Here’s how to make this card…

  • Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP ~ stripe is cut 1 1/2 x 5; large dots is cut 2 x 4
  • The Bumblebee is cut 1/8″ larger both in length and width
  • Misty Moonlight is cut 1/8″ larger both in length and width of the Bumblebee
  • The front stamped panel is 2 1/2 x 3 with Bumblebee 1/8″ larger and Misty Moonlight 1/8 larger than the Bumblebee
  • Adhere Foam Adhesive to a strip of DSP; die cut letters appropriately
  • I should have stamped the 2 1/2 x 3 Whisper White panel all over – so do that – THEN adhere the die cut letters. The stamping here was done with Bumblebee and centers colored with Purple Posy marker.
  • Card base is Purple Posy 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4: adhere all panels

The inside was super easy ~ Misty Moonlight 4 x 5 1/4; Whisper White 3 7/8 x 5 1/8. Stamp the Whisper White with Misty Moonlight and adhere to Misty Moonlight then to the inside of the card. Voila! Your card is ready…

For the envelope, adhere a panel of the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP to the envelope flap, trim. Stamp the front of the envelop with Misty Moonlight and you are all finished.

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony, Peony Dies

Hello there!  Today’s card is another show-stopper (at least I think so) ~ the Peony Dies make it so simple! While I have created only one card, I have done two peonies 😏… When writing this post originally, I didn’t take photos of the step by step of putting these dies together, or some other things either. Since it was in my draft folder – I’ve revised a bit – so hope it isn’t too confusing!

Peony Dies
#1

Supplies needed for this card:

  • Rococo Rose ink
  • Sponge dauber
  • Thick Whisper White (card base), Whisper White (panel overlay)
  • Prized Peony stamp set
  • Peony Dies
  • Positive Thoughts stamp set (sentiments)
  • Stazon black ink (sentiments)
  • Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack ribbon – very vanilla
  • Pearl Basic Jewels
  • Bumblebee cs for the stamen

I began by using the edge die from the Peony Dies to create this gorgeous border on Whisper White panel 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, and set it aside. The dies in this set make putting together the peony so easy – it’s four dies that decrease in size that simply slip into one another, and then the stamen goes in last.

Die cut the four parts for the peony out of Whisper White cs. Here are the four dies, smallest to largest.

Peony Dies
#!a

Using a sponge dauber, color each of the edges with Rococo Rose. At first I wanted to use Petal Pink or maybe Blushing Bride, but neither one suited ~ the Petal Pink was too light and the Blushing Bride, just no. Rococo Rose it was. TIP: When using the sponge dauber, go down the sides of each petal as well as along the top. AND… I slipped a piece of scrap into the slice of the paper to color the lower portion of each petal.

Begin slipping in each petal making certain you have the coloring just the way you want it. It is MUCH easier to make adjustments  to the coloring as each petal goes together than if you try to do it later – just sayin’! Adhere the petals at the base as you go, with liquid glue. This next photo shows what points on the back side of the die cuts need to aligning.

Peony Dies #4a

The leaves are die cut from both Just Jade (background of the leaf) and Shaded Spruce for the detail portion. Adhere the peony with dimensionals, then add the leaves, adhering with liquid glue. When looking at the photo, notice I curled some of the leaves to make them three-dimensional. Leaves are never flat in nature!

Adhere the bow made from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. Yes, it is very vanilla, but I love the look… kinda makes it look a bit country.

Peony Dies
#1

For the inside… stamp the medium peony from Prized Peony stamp set in Rococo Rose. Stamp the sentiment in Stazon Black ink.

Prized Peony
#2

For the envelope, stamp the medium peony all over the envelope flap, open ing the flap and letting the peony come into the main portion of the envelope. Then stamp again in the lower left corner. Stamping was done in Rococo Rose.

Peony Dies

Now… here is the completed 2nd rose: cs is Rococo Rose; White Craft ink for highlighting and Rococo Rose for shading. The stamen is Soft Sea Foam.

Kinda fun to see the contrast from Whisper White cs to the Rococo Rose cs, isn’t it? Happy stamping, happy creating…

Stampin’ Up! and DSP

Hi everyone! Monday, Monday – do you remember that song? Don’t ask me why but it’s rumbling through my brain. Goodness… Today’s card is super simple… a show-off of a DSP and some ribbon, a little of this and that. I like the color combo, the simplicity of it and the fact it could serve so many purposes AND that it shows off both sides of the DSP. Let’s take a look…

2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP
#1

Here are the supplies needed to make this quickie:

  • Misty Moonlight cs and ink
  • Bumblebee cs
  • Whisper White cs
  • 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP – Misty Moonlight
  • Elegant Faceted Germs
  • Bumblebee Gingham 1/4″ Ribbon
  • Many Mates stamp set
  • Hooray To You stamp set
  • Ornate Frames Dies

That seems like a long list of supplies, but once the cs is cut, this card will go together licekety-split. Let me tell you how to do it…

Misty Moonlight cs is the card base cut 8 1/2 x 5 12 then scored at 4 1/4. Remove 3 1/4 of what should be the front of the card, so that 1″ is left beyond the score line. Cut the DSP 4 x 5 1/2. Lay the DSP inside the card, folding the 1″ section over it. Now use the adhesive (I used the new Stampin Seal) to run down the far left side of the DSP and the outer rim of the 1″ fold-over. Making certain the edges of the DSP align with the back of the card, close the 1″ fold-over so it adheres to the DSP. Voila! Now add all the fun stuff to make this card special…

Stamp the sentiment from Many Mates stamp set with Misty Moonlight ink onto a Whisper White scrap. Use the Ornate Frames Dies to cut it into a banner then cut another banner out of Bumblebee. The Whisper White banner gets dimensionals and is attached to the Bumblebee banner. Add the Elegant Faceted Gems – I used the white gems, the larger in the center and smaller ones on either side. These are so neat!  Add dimesnionals to the Bumblebee piece as well but set it aside while fussing with the Bumblebee Gingham 1/4″ ribbon. Here’s my TIP for the ribbon: Don’t cut it just yet; lay it where you think you might want it and run just a tiny bit of Stampin Seal to adhere the one section of the ribbon. I try to work the ribbon in about a 2″ space horizontally on the card. Attach as you get the placement just right.  Since Stampin Seal is used on both sides of the ribbon, use very small amounts in order to move it where you want it without tearing the paper – don’t press it down too firmly either. Get the ribbon the way you like it, then place the banner over top and sort of centered on the DSP. Since the banner is on dimensionals, it allows the ribbon bit of give. Now cut the ribbon – and woohoo, your card front is done!

 

The inside is a Whisper White panel 4 x 5 1/4, with a 1/2″ strip of the same DSP across the bottom. Add the sentiment using Misty Moonlight ink and the Hooray To You stamp set. Adhere the panel with liquid glue to the inside of your card and the card is done…

#2

The envelope gets a bit of stamping from the Hooray To You stamp set and a bit of DSP as well. And that’s it!

Wasn’t that easy and fun? You can do it too… Stampin’ Up has a a couple of “specials” going on right now. The first is when ordering over $150 double Stampin rewards kicks in – and the buyer receives rewards to get items free from Stampin’ Up!. right then and there! Not only that, but when you purchase from me and your purchase is between $50- $150, you receive a free $10 SU! item of your choice. Use my CURRENT HOST CODE J2E4VDM for that order. If your order is over $150, while you still get the frtee item from me, DO NOT use the Host Code as SU! will give you those double rewards. Sounds awesome doesn’t it! Let me know if I can help you get started… fee free to send me an email to tlsbrightspot@gmail.com

SU! Hand- Drawn Blooms and Banner Blooms Dies

Hi Everyone – it’s going to be another scorcher here on the East coast followed by rain this afternoon ~ a definite stay in the air conditioning kind of day. Our daughter lives not far and their ac is broken – a new ‘mother board’ had to be ordered. They, my friends, are miserable! And with all this isolation and stuff, they are uncomfortable coming here for the night. Doubt they slept very well last night 😞 On with the card – right?

In yesterday’s post, I shared the die cut and I decided to see what I could make of it. It isn’t my favorite, but I think it turned out well, and it’s already in the mail, so there you go…

Banner Blooms Dies
#1

And here are the ingredients to make this lovely…

  • Gorgeous Grape cs/ ink
  • Pear Pizzazz cs (extra leaves) and marker
  • Whisper White (banner & inside panel)
  • Playing with Patterns 6×6 (die cut)
  • embellishments ~ Pearl Basic jewels, Playing with Patterns Resin Dots
  • Wink of Stella
  • Hand-Drawn Blooms stamp set
  • BAnner Blooms Dies
  • Sunflower Dies
  • Thick Whisper White cs

And here’s the how to…

Die cut the bouquet using the Banner Blooms Dies and Playing with Patterns of 6×6. Add Wink of Stella to the very small daisy like flowers, then wherever else suits you. It’s easier to do this before adhering but you can certainly add more later. Adhere very loosely with liquid glue to the Gorgeous Grape card base ~ in the banner area and a couple of places in the upper portion.. Notice in the picture the bottom half of the bouquet is not adhered at all. Stamp the banner with Memento Black ink on Whisper White and die cut using the Banner Blooms Dies. You will need to trim the excess. I wanted the extra little ‘tufts’ at the ends of the banner as I liked them :). Use a bone folder to soften the paper to make it bend and curl a bit. Adhere double dimensionals in the center only and glue dots near the ends, but allow the ends to curl up.

Now’s the time to do all the ‘trimmings’ ~ I added the Bumblebee Playing with Patterns Resin Dots and lots of tiny pearls (Pearls Basic Jewels) to the smallest flowers. I stamped one of the daisies from the Hand-Drawn Blooms stamp set in Gorgeous Grape, die cut it with the Banner Blooms Dies and covered it in Wink of Stella. This moves the ink color around a bit. I added a dimensional to it and placed it on one of the flowers that had a similar shape. I then die cut a couple of leaves from the Sunflower Dies in Pear Pizzazz. They are a similar shape to the leaves in the bouquet and gave a nice accent. Adhere this panel to a Thick Whisper White card base using dimensionals and your card front is ready!.

The inside and the envelope…

Let me say – I love this little daisy! It is just cute, cute, cute… I stamped it in Gorgeous Grape several times across the bottom of the Whisper White panel. I then added stems and leaves with a Pear Pizzazz marker.  This was adhered to a panel of Gorgeous Grape with liquid glue then added to the inside of the card, again with liquid glue.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the envelope I covered the flap in a remnant of the Playing with Patterns 6×6 paper and added a strip of Highland Heather, then I stamped the cute daisy, again with Gorgeous Grape.

And woohoo – your card is ready! As I said earlier, this is already in the mail and I used it as an anniversary card for a very special couple.

I hope you liked today’s card. Be well, stay safe.
