Stampin’ Up! Decorated w/ Happiness #2

Good Saturday morning! It’s a goin’ to be a hot one today. I’ll need to get outdoor chores done ASAP, but I do want to share this card with you first. It’s yesterday’s card in different colors – monochromatic if you will, and I like it even better.

Decorated w/ Happiness #2.1

The card base is Smoky Slate, inks for pine boughs & sentiment are also Smoky Slate; Silver Foil for the bell, pine boughs and stars; Shaded Spruce for the small boughs & Cherry Cobbler for the ‘smoosh’ behind the bell; and Whisper White for the snowflakes. And – you can see the Jingle Bell Trinket – I love the added touch and it doesn’t bother me that it contrasts with the foil.

Decorated w/ Happiness #2, inside

The inside I did just a bit differently from yesterdays card – by adding the pine bough. Inks are Smoky Slate, Cherry Cobbler & Shaded Spruce stamped on a Basic White panel.

Decorated w/ Happiness #2.3

The envelope is very similar to yesterday’s card – just using Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler. And here are the photos for yesterday’s card…

Stampin’ Up! Decorated w/ Happiness

Happy Friday! We have had some stunning weather here on the East Coast… and we have taken advantage! I hope you are able to ‘get out & enjoy’ in your area of the country :O) My card for today is… guess what… a Christmas card! Whoweee! The stamp bundle comes from the upcoming, soon to be order-able Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog. I was inspired by a card on page 27, just changed up a bit.

Decorated w/ Happiness.1

The card base is Garden Green and I’ve used Garden Green ink to stamp the pine branches in a couple of different directions. They don’t show much as the are nearly covered with the die cut pine branches from the Decorated Pine Dies from Gold Foil. (cut 2 and add to card front with dabs of liquid glue) I then stamped the ‘snow’ in Whisper White ink all over the card. Truthfully, this stamp was too busy for me – I much prefer the snowflake stamp in the Decorated with Happiness stamp set! So use that if you decide to CASE this card. Next step was to die cut the Basic White banner using the Painted Label Dies. I die cut three small pine fronds in Garden Green card stock, adhered them w/ liquid glue to the banner, stamped the ‘smoosh’ in Real Red ink as a background to the bell. Die cut the bell and several gold stars using more of the dies in this bundle. Adhere the bell with liquid glue over the ‘smoosh’, then the very cute Jingle Bell Trinket with a glue dot.. Put dimensionals on the back of the banner and add to the card front. Adhere stars with dabs of liquid glue – and the card front is done!

Decorated w/ Happiness, inside

For the inside… stamp the sentiment from Decorated with Happiness in Garden Green ink on the Basic White panel, then add the darling ornament stamp in Real Red ink – also from the same stamp set; adhere to the inside of the card :O)

Decorated with Happiness.3

The envelope is just wonderful – at least I think so. The same pine fronds from Decorated w/ Happiness stamp set were stamped on the envelope front & flap. I stamped the same ornament from inside the card in Real Red ink to bring the card & envelope together. L-o-v-e!

Products to make this card are from the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration Catalog and can’t be shown below. They CAN be ordered Jul 1!!!

Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Treat Bags

Hello Friday! Christmas must be on my mind this week… Yesterday’s blog hop was a
Christmas Fun Fold, today is a very cute (well two) treat bag. Our out of town daughter came last weekend bringing her family and a couple of fun ‘gifties’. The laser-cut wooden stars were one of the treats and not a Stampin’ Up! product. As I was trying to decide what to do with them, she said she would like to use them in a window or on a tree… or something. Here’s what I did.

Sale-a-bration Treat Bags.1
Sale-a-bration Treat Bags.2

The paper is from – what else – the Sale-a-bration Catalog and is a FREE Item with a $50 purchase. You can get your hands. on this paper Jul 3!!! It’s called Silver & Gold 6×6 DSP. This is obviously the gold. And I’ve used ribbon from the Jul-Dec Mini Catalog: Real Red & Garden Green 3/8″ Ribbon Combo Pack. It’s part of a Suite of products called the Sweetest Christmas Suite on pages 9-11. Behind each star is a glimmer paper: Real Red & White 6×6 Glimmer Paper – also part of the Sweetest Christmas Suite. The Glimmer paper was die cut with Layering Circles Dies and added to a Basic White piece cut with Layering Circles Dies, but with a scallop. I slipped a White Baker’s Twine through the star, tied a knot and when tying the Real Red or Garden Green Ribbon, I slipped it in between to hold it in place.

Here’s how to do the treat bag.

  • 6×6 piece of card stock or DSP, scored at the top: 1 3/8, 2 3/4, 4 1/8 & 5 1/2
  • Turn paper to right to score for the bottom: 1 3/8
  • Trim as shown in photo
Sale-a-bration Treat Bags.3
  • Add Tear n Tape to narrow strip ~ see photo
  • Burnish score lines with fingers, fold in half along middle score line and seal after removing Tear n Tape covering.
  • Fold in bottom pieces and seal with Tear n Tape or adhesive of choice.
  • Pinch top together; tie ribbon around the top. This can just slip off to get to the treats inside :O)

Fun, right? The fun part about making a treat bag like this, is that it can be decorated to fit the occasion: hearts, banners stamped & layered ~ the possibilities are endless. It’s up to you. Would love to see your creations, so please share.

If you do not have a demonstrator and need those or an Annual Catalog please reach out to me (the 2022-2023 AC) – happy to send one to you. When ordering, please also use current host code: H7EUAMXD.

Stampin’ Up! Fun Fold with Caroling Mice for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! You may have come over from visiting the creative Tara Carpenter – didn’t she have something fun? OR… you may be just ‘hopping’ in :O). Whatever the case, may you enjoy the creations you see today.

Our challenge this week is ‘Critters’ and we can interpret that any way we like. I chose Caroling Mice, which is a new HOST stamp set in the July – December Mini Catalog. You should have received yours from me by now… if not and you don’t have a demonstrator, let me know!

And here’s my card. Hubby & I are in a choir and this just seemed too fun to pass up – and a Christmas card already!

Caroling Mice Z-Fold.1

The larger Z-fold card base is Garden Green, scored and with Real Red card stock added to the two end panels. The middle panel is Real Red Glimmer Paper, part of the Real Red & White 6×6 Glimmer Paper pack. The DSP adhered to the two end panels is Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 cut to size. Card cuts are at the end of this post.

The smaller z-fold is a card base of Garden Green again, but this time I used the Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 DSP for base layers on all three panels then a stamped panel of Basic White. Of course the stamped panels are from the Caroling Mice stamp set, stamped in Memento ink for the mouse and Garden Green ink for the tree. I colored the mouse with Watercolor Pencils and used the Blender Pen to smooth the pencil lines. :O) The music notes are stamped in Memento ink & colored with the Basic Black Marker. I added Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins in both Sweet Sorbet & Garden Green to enhance those stamped panels.

To adhere the two Z-folds together, I centered the smaller Z-Fold (closed) on the largest of the large Z-fold and adhered it in place. I closed the larger Z-Fold card and adhered the smaller Z-Fold to the front panel with liquid glue just on the left portion of the smaller Z-fold. Voila! done… When the card is closed, the smaller Z-fold totally covers itself :O) See photo 1

Caroling Mice Z-Fold.2
Caroling Mice Z-Fold.3

I turned the card over and adhered another Real Red panel to the largest of the sections on the back. I stamped the three Caroling Mice in Memento ink, then VersaMark ink, then sprinkled it with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. I ran it through the Stitched With Whimsy Dies to give it a fun border, then colored the singing mice with Watercolor Pencils and the Blender Pen. I stamped the sentiment in Memento ink using the Sweet Candy Cane stamp set from the same July-December Mini Catalog. I adhered this completed Basic White panel to the back of the card and my first Christmas Card of the 2022 season is done!!! Who would have guessed… here it is only Jun 16!!!

Caroling Mice Z-Fold.4

Fun card, right? The Z-fold is so easy… The main trick is centering the first panel, then the other goes on easily… bing, bang, boom.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday w/ Sentiments Silhouettes Dies

Good morning! Welcome to a Tuesday Blog Hop Group. If you have come from visiting Karen Finkle – welcome. Our theme challenge is ‘birthday’ and I’ve created a fun card with the Sentiments Silhouettes Dies.

Birthday w/ Sentiments Silhouettes Dies.1

The Sentiments Silhouettes Dies is for die cutting sentiments in the coordinating Charming Sentiments stamp set. But it also has dies ‘outside of that’ – hearts, stars, birthday candles and more. I highly recommend this bundle – it’s fab!!!

I took a panel of Basic White and die cut five candles with the flame and two pattern candles. After die cutting I ran this through the Stripes & Splotches 3D embossing folder, obviously using the splotches :O) It adds texture and fun to the card. I put dimensionals on the back and attached it to a panel of Hues of Happiness 12 x 12 DSP. I inserted the die cuts of the two patterned candles, attaching them with liquid glue. I love how you can continue to see the patterned paper beneath them. Next, I took that same DSP and cut two panels with the Scalloped Contours Dies to make the scalloped edge. I used the same die to create the edge for the Basic White card base as well. With the card base edged, I added the scalloped pieces from the DSP. I then added the top panel, adhering with liquid glue. The sentiment comes from Sending Smiles stamp set and was stamped in Memento Black ink. I then added several Glossy Dots Assortments in both Pool Party and Daffodil Delight ~ and the card front was complete.

Birthday w/ Sentiments Silhouettes Dies, inside

For the inside I added a panel of Pool Party to the inside of the Basic White card base, then a ‘frame’ from Scalloped Contour Dies that I found in my stash. I love how it reinforces the scallops on the card front. The sentiment is again from Sending Smiles stamp set and stamped in Memento ink. The die cuts were taken from the Hues of Happiness DSP using the Sentiment Silhouette Dies.

Birthday w/ Sentiments Silhouettes Dies.3

For the envelope… I used Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends to color one of the candles & flames die cut from the card front and added it to the envelope. Below it is a strip of the same Hues of Happiness DSP used on the card. It just really brings everything together! This card was inspired by a slimline card I saw on Pinterest, created by Tami White. Remember card cuts are at the bottom of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Thank you

Hi Folks – Friday it is… perhaps you’re thinking TGIF and maybe you have some fun plans. Whatever you have going on, I hope you have some time to create something special for someone – as in ‘handmade card.’ Hint, hint :O)

My card for today allows for some DSP to take center stage, then a gorgeous wreath is placed upon it to really give it some pop. Here it is…

Nature’s Prints Bundle Thank You.1

The DSP is Sun Prints 12 x 12 which coordinates so beautifully with the Nature’s Prints bundle. I mean, look at the gorgeousness of that paper. This was added to a Calypso Coral card base. I die cut two wreaths from Basic White card stock using the Natural Prints Dies. The bottom wreath is adhered directly to the DSP with dabs of liquid glue. The top wreath is placed on mini dimensionals and added to the other. I stamped the sentiments from Nature’s Prints stamp set on Vellum – Memento ink and using my Stamparatus again. I cleaned the stamp, re-inked it with VersaMark and stamped again: then sprinkled it with Clear Embossing powder and heat set with m y Heat Tool. This made a clear, shiny sentiment that ‘glows’. I die cut the sentiment banner using Natural Prints Dies and added it to a strip of Calypso Coral with just a bit of Stampin’ Seal (I probably should have used glue dots!) I put dimensionals on the back of the Calypso Coral and added it over the wreath. Several Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels were added for sparkle. Love these jewels!!

Nature’s Prints Bundle Thank You, inside

For the inside I took a narrow strip of the same Pretty Prints 12 xl. 12 and added it near the bottom of the Basic White panel, then added the panel to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base.

Nature’s Prints Bundle Thank You.3

More of the same Pretty Prints DSP was adhered to the envelope flap. For the envelope front I stamped this stunning fern leaf in stamped-off at least twice Calypso Coral ink. It just adds a gorgeous touch to the entire piece.

Stampin’ Up! Orchid Oasis Birthday

Happy Friday! At least, that’s the day I think it is… sometimes when a holiday gets in the mix, my days get all messed up. Does that happen to you? Life gets out of sequence and well, there it is. Today’s card is lots of Orchid Oasis. This is becoming one of my favorite new In Colors.

Orchid Oasis Birthday.1

I’ve used the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Paper adhered to Basic White, put on dimensionals and added to the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer Paper (also in Orchid Oasis) that was wrapped with the 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine (yep, Orchid Oasis!). And yes, you can see I tied that twine in a bow at the left side. I like the texture it adds to the card. This piece also got dimensionals and was added to the Bermuda Bay card base. I stamped the sentiment also in Bermuda Bay ink on a Basic White panel. That sentiment comes from the Charming Sentiments Bundle and was die cut with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouette Dies. I put mini dimensionals on the back and added it to another piece of the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer Paper. This was adhered with liquid glue to the card front. The final touch was the Solid Faceted Gems in Night of Navy. They add a different kind of sparkle to the card. L-O-V-E!

Orchid Oasis Birthday, inside

I kept the inside super simple – just a strip of the same 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Paper Pack added to the bottom of the Basic White panel, then adhered to the inside of the card.

More of the same 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Paper Pack was added to the envelope. What I love about this card is that it could so easily be a masculine card if needed. And those are sometimes hard to come by. I’ll post dimensions for the card cuts at the bottom of this post as well as the products to make this card. A click of the button will take you to my online store so you can get it all 😁

Stampin’ Up! Double Flap Fun Fold with Abigail Rose 12 x 12

I’ve been playing with the Abigail Rose 12 x 12 DSP that coordinates with the Cottage Rose bundle (10% off when purchasing the bundle!). The bundle includes the fabulous Cottage Flowers Dies. The dies are delicate and beautiful. This DSP and fun fold were super easy to make – like two cards in one. Here’s a peek.

Double Flap Fun Fold w/ Abigail Rose.1

Here’s what it looks like in various open positions.

Double Flap Fun Fold.2
Double Flap Fun Fold.3

Isn’t this fun? Notice the beautiful floral die cut on the front of the card ~ that’s one of the coordinating dies in the Cottage Rose bundle. And the sentiment on the card front comes from the Charming Sentiment bundle and die cut with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes Dies. The flowers were all from the Cottage Rose stamp set and colored with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends. The DSP on the front is Abigail Rose 12 x 12 and colored as the stamped flowers – with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends. Early Espresso ink was used for all stamping. The final addition was three Pearl Basic Jewels.

How to:

  • Prepare the card base (crumb Cake)… 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 2 3/4 & 5 1/2: fold in half & burnish, fold the flap back on itself & burnish
  • Attach all card cuts to each section:
    • Basic White – 2 3/8 x 4 1/8 (2); 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
    • DSP (Abigail Rose) 2 1/2 x 4 (2 coordinating); 4 x 5 14
  • Create the flap fold of the card
    • Crumb Cake – 8 1/2 x 3 1/4, score at 4 1/4
    • Basic White – 3 1/8 x 4 1/8(3) use 2 for stamping and inside of the flap fold
    • DSP – 3 x 4 (This is the section I colored & is called the front of the flap fold)

Stampin’ Up! Triple Stamping with Nature’s Prints

Happy Sunday. Today is concert day for us! WooHoo! OK, maybe that’s enough of that. I have another triple stamping card today – one we made in card class last week. This time it’s more masculine – or could be, inked with Starry Sky using Nature’s Prints. And the layers are off-set for a bit of change. I almost like this better than the one from the other day.

This post was written and saved – but in the wrong spot and so… didn’t get posted. Today is actually MONDAY, the day after our concert :O) – which was really fun. Hopefully this will come through properly today.

Triple Stamping w/ Naturte’s Prints.1

I did all the cutting prior to doing the stamping, it’s just easier that way.

  • Basic White card cuts: 4 x 5 1/4 (2); 3 1/4 x 3; 3 x 1 1/4. Place together using removable tape or glue dots. (as I mentioned the other day, glue dots work fine, but you do have to be ultra careful when taking the papers apart, due to tearing.) My key is putting these together was to have the second panel about 1/2″ from the left edge and the top panel 1/2″ from right edge. That way it looks balanced.
  • Starry Sky card cuts: 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/; 3 1/2 x 3 1/4; 3 1/4 x 2

Stamp the sentiment first: Nature’s Prints in Starry Sky ink. Stamp the Basic White panels (remember they are together) with this beautiful leaf from Nature’s Prints inked with Starry Sky ink. Press firmly but do not wiggle the stamp. Now take basic white stamped pieces apart and adhere to appropriate Starry Sky pieces.The second layer is on dimensionals, while the top layer is adhered with liquid glue. With all in place, add the three Solid Faceted Gems. I used Pool Party but the Night of Navy would look nice too.

Nature’s Prints, inside

This sentiment again comes from the Nature’s Prints stamp set using Starry Sky ink. I stamped the blotch after stamping off twice (and maybe should have stamped off one more time.) This card can so easily be used for ‘thinking of you’ or birthday, and masculine too. Adhere this panel to the inside and done!

Triple Stamping w/ Nature’s Prints.3

For the envelope, I stamped the blotch stamp from Nature’s Prints in Starry Sky ink, stamping-off twice, on the front, and did the same all over the flap. I just forgot to take a picture of it – silly me! I hope you like this card – and this technique. This would also be a perfect sympathy card with the right sentiment; soothing and comforting.
