Celebration

Christmastime Is Here DSP

I just love this card; maybe because it is not the traditional fold, maybe ‘cquse of the colors, who knows, but I like it and hope you do as well. This could be a gift card holder or what I made of this one is simply a card.Either way, I’ll give directions for both.

Here are the deets:
Poppy Parade – 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Mossy Meadow – 3 1/2″ x 4″ + scrap for the Beautiful Boughs diecut
Soft Seafoam – 3 1/4″ x 7 1/2″, scored at 3 3/4″ (if for a gift card: 3 1/4″ x 9 3/4, scored at 3 3/4″ & 7 1/2″)
Very Vanilla – 3 x 3 1/2″ (cut 2, one for inside) + scrap for the Beautiful Boughs label
Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP – 2 3/4″ x 3 1/4″

Instructions are pretty simple:
* Adhere Mossy Meadow piece to the Poppy Parade
* Adhere the Soft Seafoam piece to that
* Adhere Very Vanilla to that
* Adhere the Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP to that.
* Create the desired diecut from Mossy Meadow and adhere with Tombow glue
* Stamp Sentiment (mine is from Playful Penguins stamp set from the Holiday catty) and using dimensionals, adhere over the diecut.
* Attach a “bauble” with linen thread. (This pinecone is a retired item, but it could easily have been a jingle bell from the holiday catty!)
* Stamp desired sentiment onto the Very Vanilla CS for the inside and adhere with Tombow glue
DONE!!!
Here’s a picture of the card with the jingle bell:

Here is picture of the inside simply stamped and used as a gift card holder:

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you had a wonderful time with family and or friends for Thanksgiving. Our celebration will be Sunday as family is scattered this year (ūüėě) Nevertheless – we are grateful for all around us and for family scattered hither and yon. Blessings on all of you as you continue about your day/ week.

Dashing Deer Wrapped in Plaid

Hi Everyone, It’s been a couple of days since I posted and I wanted to touch base again. Today’s card is simple and elegant and was our project for class Monday night. Each person’s was a bit different as the various patterns of Wrapped In Plaid DSP made it distinctive.

Here’s the card:

Isn’t it elegant? I like that it has no sentiment on the front, just the simple beauty of the deer.
Here are the deets:
Thick Whisper White CS – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
Wrapped In Plaid DSP – 4″ x 5 1/4″
Shaded Spruce – 3′ x 4 1/4′
Whisper White – 2 3/4″ x 4″ (cut 2 of these, one for stamping and die cutting the deer), 4″ x 5 1/4″ for the inside.

Instructions:
* Adhere the Wrapped In Plaid DSP to the Whisper White CS.
* Adhere the other Whisper White CS piece to the Shaded Spruce. Add dimensionals to the Shaded Spruce and adhere to the card.
* Stamp the deer in Cherry Cobbler. I used my stamparatus since sometimes I want to ink and stamp the deer again and this makes it so easy to do! Using your favorite die cutting machine, cut out the deer. Place on dimensions, including the legs. Yes, it does mean you have to cut dimensionals apart, but it’s worth it for the stability. Adhere the deer to the card.
* Make a bow and adhere with glue dots. For this card the bow is a non-SU! product, but linen thread could have been used and that would have looked great too.

For the inside I used a scrap from cutting down the 6 x 6 DSP (about 3/4′ x 4″) to the bottom of the additional pice of Whisper White. Stamp your favorite greeting and voila – done!

Cute packaging using retired DSP

Hi All – happy August! Today is a fun project using retired Designer Series Paper (or in the Stampin Up! World DSP) Of course, any paper can be used, but this is a fun way to make use of that retired product. I’ve used 6 x 6 cardstock and cut that down to size. Here is a picture of the finished product – five ¬†of them anyway – and so easy to do.

Here are the dimensions:

5″ wide scored at 1 1/8″, 2 1/4″, 3 3/8″ and 4 1/2″

4 3/4″ tall scored at 1″ at bottom. Burnish all score lines.

 

Look at the next picture to see how that was trimmed. Notice also the tear ‘n tape and where it is positioned. The first is the front side, the second is the inside of the package.

 

What’s fun then is to decorate! I used primarily the 1 3/8″ scalloped punch for the larger circle, and went from there, looking in my scrap bin for whatever I could find. On one of them are two sets of leaves from the leaf punch: one. In vellum, the other in Shaded Spruce to coordinate with the DSP. The spruce leaf is scored along each leaf and slightly curled to make it more three dimensional. The butterfly is reinforced on a piece of cardstock – cut from another retired DSP. The little dots are glitter dots – don’t you just love them? They bring the decoration to life. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings.

After puttting it together, I’ve pinched the top and punched a hole in which to thread the ribbon.

Questions? Feel free to ask! Let me know if I can help you create something fun. If you would like to place an order, please use my HOST CODE: 6YVUK6A9, which is good Aug 6-20, 2019. If you order is OVER $150, do not use the HOST CODE.

Country Floral embossing folder

The Country Floral embossing folder from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue is gorgeous! ¬†I wasn’t going to get it, but all the posts showed these beautiful images and I couldn’t resist.

Participating in my first Blog Hop…! ¬†Once you read mine, feel free to visit the next blog by clinking on the appropriate links below.

Today’s card is prepared using Petal Pink card stock (CS). The embossed layer is 4 X 5 1/4… spritz the paper first as this folder makes deep impressions and the spritzing allows the CS some “give” to accept those more easily. After embossing, allow to dry for just a bit. Then with Petal Pink ink and a sponge dauber, rub that color over the raised areas ~ love how gentle this coloring is and how it enhances the embossed design. Glue this piece to Petal Pink 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 CS. ¬†Using the whisper white flax ribbon cut at about 6 1/2″ and wrap this around both pieces, adhering in back with glue dots. Then cut a piece of the whisper white polka dot ribbon at about 7″, placing this on top of the flax ribbon, using tape to adhere it on the back. Using the Pretty Label punch, create a label out of whisper white; rub the edges with Petal Pink, add your sentiment (I used one of my favorites from Perennial Birthday); add dimensionals and place on ribbon. ¬†Using another short piece of the polka dot ribbon, tie a knot. Viola! ¬†Attach all of this to the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Petal Pink CS with dimensionals. ¬†Card front is done :o) On the inside adhere a piece of whisper white cut at 3 3/4 x 5 with your favorite sentiment.

For the envelope flap, I embossed another piece of Petal Pink CS cut at 2 1/4 x 6, glued it to the flap and bingo, the card is ready.  Fun, easy, and lovely.
