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.

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! 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.

Daffodils for the Blog Hop 2/24.1

And here’s our sketch challenge.

This is a very feminine card – and I love the combination of Designer Papers. Daffodils are one of the first signs of Spring and this just feels so ‘right.’ Here are the details…

  • Cut card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, score at 4 1/4. This is Pear Pizzazz
  • Cut DSP 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere w/ liquid glue
  • Cut coordinating DSP 2 5/8 x 3 7/8. Adhere to card stock panel (Crushed Curry here) 2 3/4 x 4. Adhere these to a Very Vanilla panel 3 x 4 1/4. Add dimensionals to the back and center on card front.
  • Stamp sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink using the Art Gallery stamp set on a Very Vanilla scrap. Die cut with the Tailor Made Tag Dies.
  • Add ribbon to tag: Bumblebee Gingham ribbon, securing together with a glue dot
  • Put dimensionals on back of tag & attach to card front. Done!
Daffodils for Blog Hop 2/24.2 (inside)

For the inside…

  • Cut DSP 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere to the inside of the card.
  • Cut Very Vanilla panel 3 1/8 x 4 1/8.
  • Stamp with butterfly from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Memento ink and color with Daffodil Delight Blends & Black Blends.
  • Stamp the ‘pollen’ from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Crushed Curry ink ~ the butterfly is scattering pollen from his legs ass he flies from flower to flower. :O)
  • Add this panel to a piece of Crushed Curry 3 3/8 x 4 3/8, then to the inside of the card. Finis!

For the Very Vanilla envelope…

Daffodils for Blog Hop 2/24.3
  • More DSP added to the envelope flap
  • Stamp the daffodil from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Memento black ink.
  • Color leaves with both Old Olive Stampin’ Blends
  • Color the daffodil with both Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends

Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Afternoon DSP and Daisy Punch

It’s Friday ~ TGIF! It’s amazing how quickly the days pass. I hope you have plans to do some creative fun this weekend. Whatever your plans, may you be safe. My card today shines with the Daffodil Afternoon 12 x 12 DSP that is free during Sale-a-bration when you place an order of $50 or more. It also uses the Medium Daisy Punch. Let’s take a look.

Daffodil Afternoon DSP & Daisy Punch.1

I’ve used several items to create this card, but really love how they worked together. The zig zag elements are cut with the Tropical Layers Dies and create this wonderful trim to make the DSP pop. The die has what I’m calling a stitched edge that also enhances the lines on the DSP daisy. I used Daisy Lane Stamp set for stamping the daisy with Basic Gray ink on Very Vanilla, colored the center with Flirty
Flamingo Stampin’ Blends then popped three Pastel Pearls on it for glam. I layered two dimensionals on top of one another before adding it to the card front. The sentiment comes from another FREE Sale-a-bration item called Special Moments stamp set and was stamped in Mossy Meadow on Very Vanilla card stock and fussy cut. I put it on dimensionals and added it to a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock. (This also comes with an order of $50 or more.) Two more Pastel Pearls were added to pull this together.

For the inside…

Daffodil Afternoon inside.2

This seems like a modern type of card to me, and since I had these pieces that fit so nicely inside, I used them! They are Very Vanilla card stock adhered to the Mossy Meadow card base. I then stamped the daisy with Mossy Meadow ink using the Daisy Lane stamp set. The sentiment (Friend) also comes from Daisy Lane and is stamped in Mossy Meadow ink.

For the envelope…

Daffodil Afternoon DSP & Daisy Punch.3

I stamped the daisy randomly on the envelope flap in Mossy Meadow ink, then stamped a single daisy on the front ~ and the card was done. Love this layout!

Sale-a-bration is from 4 Jan to 28 Feb ~ that means placing orders during this time can earn you some FREE PRODUCTS. What are you waiting for??? Products are listed below so feel free to order away :O) If you do not have a demonstrator and need an Annual Catalog please reach out to me – happy to send one to you.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Fields DSP Birthday

I have a beautiful card for you today, one in which the Designer Series Paper does all the work. The DSP is called Flowering Fields 12 x 12 and it truly is something else.

Flowering Fields DSP b’day.1

I inked two new stamp sets today – and one is called Flowing Flowers – see the sentiment on the card? That’s from Flowing Flowers. I love this font! It’s fresh & light. Here’s what I did to make the card…

  • Card base is Pool Party 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Flowering Fields DSP is 3 1/2 x 5 1/2; adhere to the card front
  • Poppy Parade 1/8 x 5 1/2 (cut 4); adhere one length on each side of the DSP
  • Using the Flowing Flowers stamp set, stamp sentiment in Poppy Parade ink on a Basic White scrap; die cut with an Ornate Frames die; adhere with dimensionals as shown
  • Tie a bow using the Open Weave Ribbon in Pale Papaya and adhere with a glue dot. Done!

For the inside….

  • Cut a Basic White panel 3 1/2 x 5 1/2
  • Using the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set, stamp the stems/ leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink. Stamp the coordinating flowers in Blushing Bride ink
  • Adhere the panel to the inside of the card base.
  • Add the two lengths of Poppy Parade strips to each side – done!

For the envelope…

Stampin’ Up! True Love & Happy

It is Super Bowl weekend! Woohoo! And what are YOU doing during Super Bowl? I’ll probably color something while watching the game – it’s the perfect time. Or fussy cut… but that’s not my preference. Speaking of coloring, todays card uses the Stampin Blends and it gives a bolder look than the card of yesterday with the pencils. I used another one of the True Love DSP papers too. Let’s take a look…

True Love Happy #1

This card incorporates the Pretty Perennials stamp set in the sentiments on the card front and the word ‘happy’ just pops! I colored just the smallest of the flowers using both the Light & Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends – just enough to tie in the Daffodil Delight card stock it sits on and the Ruched Ribbon, also in Daffodil Delight.

I stamped the word ‘happy’ in VersaMark ink on a piece of Basic Black card stock after using the embossing buddy to clear it of any static, then sprinkled White embossing powder over the ink and heat set it. Once it cooled a bit I fussy cut the word. I then adhered it to a piece of Basic White card stock and fussy cut around it again, giving it a white border. I stamped the word ‘birthday’ also from the Pretty Perennials stamp set, in Memento Black ink on a Basic White scrap and punched it with the Classic Label Punch. After deciding where I wanted to place the larger word, I ran a strip of Stampin’ Seal across and wove the Ruched Ribbon to just the way I wanted it, and the Stampin Seal held it nicely in place. I put dimensionals on both sentiments, adhering the larger word first, then the ‘birthday just over the ends, also on dimensionals. I added three 2020-2022 Enamel Dots in Bumblebee for the final touch.

The True Love DSP panel was adhered to Daffodil Delight card stock, put on dimensionals then added to the Thick Basic White card base and the card front was complete.

True Love Happy #2

For the inside I added a 3/4″ strip of the same True Love DSP to the bottom of the Basic White panel after coloring with the Daffodil Delight Stampin blends. This panel was adhered to a Daffodil Delight panel with liquid glue then to inside of the card base, also with liquid glue – and the card was done. Easy peasy…

True Love Happy #3

For the envelope I did no coloring, just added a strip of the True Love DSP to the envelope flap and that’s it. A bright, cheery card ready to send to someone special.

SU! Birthday Triple Cube Pop Up Fun Fold

Hellooooo 😁 It’s F-A-L-L, officially… and today’s card is sort of fall and definitely a birthday card. It was, I confess, my first attempt at making this fun fold, and I’m generally pretty pleased with it. We learn from mistakes, hopefully, and I should make another real soon as to remember what I would do differently… Here ’tis…

Triple Box Fun Fold
#1

The gorgeous Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP is the highlight of this card – and the background to it is the Brushed Metallic card stock in copper and the card base is Cinnamon Cider. I used the Ornate Frames Dies to frame the sentiment and Fancy Phrases stamp set for the sentiment. I added the Gilded Gems on the sentiment label.

Ornate Frames Dies, Gilded Gems
#2

The Butterfly Gala Bundle (stamp set/ butterfly punch) were used for the butterflies (3 of them) and several Blends for coloring: Lt Purple Posy, Lt Bermuda Bay and Lt Mango Melody. To add as bit of glam on the butterflies, I added Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels. I also used gold metallic trim for the butterfly antennae – this is from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.

For the “inside” decorations I used the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty DSP and the Boho Indigo Dies for the vases.

Triple Fun Fold, inside
#3

On another of the ‘inside panels” I created a banner/ tag using the Fancy Phrases Bundle (stamp set and Fancy Tag Topper Punch).

Fun Fold, inside
#4

Fancy Tag Topper Punch
#5

The tag was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, then the flowers colored with Calypso Coral and Just Jade Blends. Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels were centered on the two flowers. Basketweave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack – copper metallic for the trim + Forever Greenery Ribbon Combo Pack using the Vanilla. I did trim the width to allow it to slip inside the prepared sleeve.

Here are photos in general preparation of this FUN FOLD… card cuts will be. listed at the end of this post.

This is great picture of the tabs to hold the sentiment… each is about 1/2″ width x 2″ in length then folded in half. Adhere tear n tape to each side. Adhere the folded side to the fold of the lower ‘boxes’, centering. Remove tear n tape and carefully apply sentiment tag.
