Thank You

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! Twigs & Sprigs Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello there! It’s our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop and I’ve a fun card to share with you today. We have a sketch challenge and I’m using three of the new In Colors and a couple of embossing folders to share with you.

And here’s our sketch challenge for this week.

And here’s what I created for the challenge… embossing folders to create texture and share in new product!

Twigs & Sprigs EF.1

Super fun – so out of my ordinary with color combo, but I love it! I started with a Tahitian Tide card base, and cut another of the same card stock in 4 1/4 x 5 12, embossed that piece with the Stripes & Splatters Embossing Folder (EF) using the splatters EF and adhered directly to the front of the card.

I cut a panel of Starry Sky 2 7/8 x 3 7/8 and put dimensionals on the back. Next I ran a panel of Parakeet Party cut to the same size through the Cut & Emboss machine with the Twigs & Sprigs EF, layered it off-center on the Starry Sky panel and adhered the two together with liquid glue, then with dimensionals on the back of the Starry Sky piece, added them both to the card front. I cut a strip of Starry Sky 5/8 x about 2 1/2, stamped the sentiment from Charming Sentiments in VersaMark ink. I then sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool. I added two 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots in Parakeet Party to the banner, put dimensionals on the back and added it to the card. DONE!

Twigs & Sprigs, inside

For the inside, I again used the Charming Sentiments stamp set to stamp the sentiment directly on the inside of the card in Starry Sky ink. I did this using the Stamparatus… cuz I needed the next layer, the Basic White panel to be in the perfect spot.

Twigs & Sprigs, inside.2
Twigs & Sprigs, inside.3

With the Basic White panel in place, I stamped it with Starry Sky without re-inking, removed the Basic White panel and die cut the words with the new & fabulous Sentiment Silhouette Dies (coordinates with the Charming Sentiments stamp set and as a bundle is 10% off!). I then adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card & voila. :O) I hadn’t done this before and am really pleased with the way it turned out. Isn’t that fun?

OK, card was complete, time to do the envelope…remember the words die cut from the Basic White inside panel? I adhered them with liquid glue to the envelope front. For the flap, I ran a piece of Starry Sky card stock through the Stripes & Splatters EF, using the stripes EF, adhered it to the flap & trimmed to fit. Bingo.

Let me tell you about the Twigs & Sprigs Embossing Fold & Die – it’s two parts… the die cuts all the twigs & sprigs from the EF so they can be used in a fun way on another card. I was playing you see, wanted to know what it would do… and it’s run through together, at the same time. To create this card front, I didn’t use the die, just the EF. You understood that, right? Good! Just wanted to be sure. 😏

OK – hop… To continue the hop, click the next button or click on a name to visit a specific blog. Either way, enjoy this creative bunch. Thanks for joining us today!

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Fields DSP and Amazing Thanks Dies

The January to June 2022 Mini Catalog is full of absolutely amazing project ideas, new stamp & die sets AND new Designer Series Papers. I hadn’t played much with the Flowering Fields DSP, so when I began doing so, well, I fell in love with it. I saw a layout on Pinterest that I decided to use and adapted it to this card.

Flowering Fields / Amazing Thanks Dies.1

Isn’t that DSP beautiful? I love how gentle the flowers look, sort of blowing in the breeze. And here’s how I made this card.

  • Cut a panel of Rich Razzleberry 4 1/8 x 5 3/8; run it through the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder; adhere with liquid glue to the Basic White Thick card base
  • Cut a panel of Basic White 3 x 3 1/2 and run it through the Meadow Moments embossing folder; adhere as shown with liquid glue
  • Cut a length of Flowering Fields DSP 2 1/4 x 5 1/4 and adhere, centering on the card front.
  • Using the Layering Circles Dies, cut a circle from Highland Heather card stock. Put dimensionals on the back and attach where shown
  • Using the Amazing Thanks Dies, die cut the sentiment from Basic White and adhere with liquid glue.
  • Attach several (here I used 5) Brushed Brass Butterflies.
  • And just one more touch of sparkle was needed… cut a length of the Glittered Organdy Ribbon in White and attached with a glue dot under the circle. Love…❤️

For the inside…

Flowering Fields / Amazing Thanks, inside

With the Amazing Thanks Dies comes this wonderful stamp set, Amazing Silhouettes, and this butterfly is absolutely perfect for the inside of this card. Stamp it in Highland Heather ink as shown, on a Basic White panel and adhere to the inside of the card. Done!

For the envelope, I turned this tulip panel over and saw this wonderful color spray from Highland Heather to Rich Razzleberry, and adhered it to the flap. For the envelope front, I stamped the same butterfly from Amazing Silhouettes in Highland Heather ink.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Hearts Dies for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

WooHoo ~ it’s Thursday and time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. You’re going to see some wonderful ideas from this group, so let’s get on with it.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 18034290_10213018857694437_1570318010991291595_n.jpg

And we have a sketch challenge this week that is kinda fun – and you will see many ideas for making this sketch shine.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop January 20- Sketch Challenge'

My card is a Note card and I’v e chosen to work with the Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 SDSP and the Sweet Hearts Dies. Let’s take a peak.

Sweet Hearts Dies.1

Are these tiny hearts sweet or what?! The die I used cuts four of these at a time which makes it really easily to die cut multiples. As I look at this, I’m wondering why I didn’t add another strip of color to the inside of the Abstract Beauty 4×6 SDSP… Hmmm. A bit of ribbon maybe. Well, another card another day 🙂 These note cards are 3 1/2 x 5, so I cut a panel of Basic White card stock just that size, stamped the sentiment (from Rainbow of Happiness stamp set) in Magenta Madness ink, then ran this through the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I added the two narrow strips of the Abstract Beauty 4×6 SDSP to each side. I die cut the hearts from the same SDSP. The top gold heart is on a mini dimensional cut down to fit. The other hearts are added with dabs of liquid glue, and I put the dot of glue right on the card front in lieu of the heart.

For the inside of the card….

Sweet Heart Dies.2

I added another strip of the Abstract Beauty 4×6 SDSP to the right inside of the card and final heart die cut. Sweet, simple.

Sweet Heart Dies.3

For the envelope I stamped the front with the same sentiment from Rainbows of Happiness stamp set buty used Blushing Bride ink. And for envelope flap, a piece of Simply Marbelous 6×6 DSP (FREE during Sale-a-bration!) adhered with liquid glue and trimmed to fit.

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.

SU! Boho Indigo #2 on Notecard

Hi Everyone! It is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l here in NJ, USA… Cool temps, low humidity – yes – I could accept this for a while 😁… Just perfect!

My card for today is another Boho Indigo on a Notecard. I had stamped three vases in Memento Black ink some time ago and they have been sitting on my workspace waiting patiently to be used. I swear a little gremlin kept pushing them forward saying “use me, use me”. Must be my imagination 🙂

Card…

Boho Indigo 2

What we have is three colors (a couple of shades of green but that’s ok): a Petal Pink from the Peony Garden DSP, solid Petal Pink cs , Whisper White cs (Postage Stamp Punch, sentiment banners and of course the Notecard, and Pear Pizzazz (+ Old Olive 1/4″ Ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack).

Stamp the vase from the Boho Indigo stamp set in Memento Black ink. Add dimesnionals to it and adhere to a Whisper White piece that has been punched using the Postage Stamp Punch. (Love this punch – such a sweet border it creates…) Die cut the leaves (twice) from Pear Pizzazz cs using the Boho Indigo coordinating dies. Trim the extended stems and adhere with liquid glue to the Whisper White Postage Stamp Punch. Adhere this vase ‘decor’ to a panel of the Petal Pink from the Peony Garden DSP with liquid glue, then to a solid piece of Petal Pink cs. Add a 1/4 length of Pear Pizzazz cs to the Notecard front, then add the Petal Pink completed panel with dimensionals.Add the folded folded 1/4″ Old Olive Ribbon with a glue dot I wanted this to be a thank you card… so I pulled out Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and stamped the sentiment on a 1/4″ Whisper White strip and cut it apart adding a banner end to the ‘thanks’ word. I adhered these with liquid glue.

For the envelope I adhered the same Peony Garden DSP to the envelope flap then stamped the ‘fleur’ across the bottom with Pear Pizzazz ink.

Thanks for stopping by.

May you have a beautiful day.

Card Cuts for this card…

  • Petal Pink 2 3/8 x 4 3/8
  • Peony Garden DSP 2 x 4
  • Whisper White for the Postage Stamp Punch – approximately 1 3/4 x 2 1/2 + 1/4″ strip for sentiment approximately 2″ in length

SU! Celebrate Sunflowers Duo

Hi folks! Today I’m sharing a card and ‘tot’ with you using the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle – which means using the Sunflower Dies AND the stamp set. I can’t stand it, these are so pretty…

All Dressed Up tote

Celebrate Sunflowers card

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So much fun to create! And the dies and stamp set make it so easy… For the tote: Begin by Die cutting the tote using the All Dressed Up Dies. This is die cut from Flirty Flamingo. Remember you have to die cut two and put them together. Then die cut the straps and do two of those as well. I sponged the edges of the tote in Flirty Flamingo to give it some depth. It doesn’t really show in the picture, but it does make a difference. Once the tote is put together, set it aside and create the sunflower: stamp the sunflower in Flirty Flamingo ink on Whisper White cs and die cut with the outline die. Die cut the full sunflower in Petal Pink and using a sponge dauber, ‘color’ with Flirty Flamingo. I also used my Wink of Stella and covered the petals only.  Color the center area with Stampin’ Blends using both light and dark Crumb Cake. Die cut the tiny center out of Crumb Cake cs and sponge the edges of this with Crumb Cake and adhere with dimensionals. Add three Gold Glitter Enamel Dots. Adhere the finely detailed Sunflower die cut to the outline die cut, lining up the edges so they match or not. (It gives it a different look if it isn’t lined up and I like it both ways. This one is lined up.) I used liquid glue and just adhered the larger center area leaving the petals loose/ free. Die cut the leaves in Just Jade – you can see I did several. Adhere the leaves to the back of the Sunflower die cut, then adhere to the front of the tote with liquid glue. Tie a length of the 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle ribbon in a knot to one one of the straps. Then I tied a bow out of the 1/2″ Whisper White Faux Linen Ribbon and adhered with a glue dot. Love this – so feminine and so cute!

The card… Die cut a panel of the Flowers for Every Season 6×6 DSP using the die from the Ornate Layers Dies. This creates a beautiful feminine background for this sunflower. This was adhered to a Thick Whisper White card base (4 1/4 x 11). Another piece of the DSP was cut using the Stitched Rectangles Dies to create another layer and fun background. Next I stamped the sunflower in Memento black in on panel of Whisper White cs and die cut using the Stitched Squares dies. Color with both the light and dark Flirty Flamingo Blends.Notice it is lightly colored with lots of white showing. This gives it wonderful depth and really makes it more realistic. And I actually stamped two sunflowers and after coloring cut into one of them and added it to the Square one using dimensionals. I die cut the detailed sunflower from Flirty Flamingo and used the outline die cut to create a vellum background. I adhered the detailed die cut to the vellum, retaining a few of the petal insets and adhered those with liquid glue. The sunflower was adhered to the card front with liquid glue then the square one with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Memento black ink, cut it apart and adhered it with dimensionals. Love this look!

Celebrate Sunflowers closeup

For the inside I stamped several leaves in Just Jade ink on a Whisper White panel (4 x 5 1/4) and adhered that to Just Jade (4 1/8 x 5 3/8) and then into the card base. While the stamp was out I stamped the envelope front and flap continuing in the Just Jade ink.

SU!Thank You with DSP Focus

Hi Everyone! Today’s card was created for our neighbor who so generously gave us unused mulch… of course, I had to cart it uphill to our yard, but hey, it was free…  useful… and needed. So there you have it.😉 We have great neighbors! And I totally cased this card from Amy Koenders!

Here’s the card…

Ornate Thanks stamp set
Ornate Layers Dies
#1

And here’s a list of supplies…

  • Ornate Thanks stamp set
  • Ornate Layers Dies
  • Stitched Rectangles Dies
  • Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color ribbon
  • In Good Taste DSP
  • Neutral 6×6 DSP – Night of Navy
  • Night of Navy ink & cs
  • Whisper White cs
  • Smokey Slate cs
  • Versamark
  • White embossing powder

And here’s how I did it…

I started by die cutting the two rectangles for the front using the Stitched Rectangles Dies. I adhered these two together with the new Stampin Seal (it works great… has an end cap so it doesn’t stick to anything else when you put it away. I’m happy with it.) I then adhered them to the card front (Smokey Slate) with the same Stampin Seal. With Night of Navy cs I stamped the card front sentiment with Versamark ink using the Ornate Thanks stamp set, sprinkled it with White Embossing powder and heat set it. TIP… this needs to cool a bit before handling as it’s kinda sticky while still warm. I then die cut it using the Ornate Layers Dies. This was put on dimensionals and set aside. I cut a length of ribbon from the Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color spool and adhered it with the Stampin Seal. The sentiment on dimesnionals was placed over the top and centered on the card.

For the inside…

Ornate Thanks stamp set
#2

With a panel of Whisper White cs, I stamped the sentiment from Ornate Thanks stamp set in Night of Navy. I adhered a strip of the Neutral 6×6 DSP in Night of Navy 1/4″ from the bottom and added another strip of the In Good Taste DSP over the top. This was adhered to the Smokey Slate card base and the card was complete!

The envelope…

Ornate Thanks stamp set #3

Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy from the Ornate Thanks stamp set. Adhere the Neutrals 6×6 Night of Navy to the envelope flap and the envelope is complete. Wheee. Easy peasy and so perfect for our neighbors.

All of these products may be found in the new 2020-2021 SU! catalog. If you do not have a demonstrator and wish to have a catalog, contact me. Either way, here’s a PDF copy for you to browse at your leisure.

Stampin’ Up! Acetate Card Boxes and DSP

Acetate Card Boxes and Detailed Bee Dies

It’s Sunday! Today on the coast of Jersey we have a sunshiny day, a bit cool at just 32 degrees but it is to get up to 61 before the day begins to cool again. I have to say, the daffodils and pansies and Hellebores (Lenten Rose) love these cool temps and are thriving. What’s our card for today? There isn’t one – it’s a box 😁. Todays post is all about the Stampin’ Up! Acetate Card Boxes, a bit of ribbon and Designer  Series Paper. Let’s take a look…

Acetate Card Box #1

Acetate Card Box #2

I’m going to walk you through this with photos and it’s really quite easy…

  • Cut your Acetate Card Box in half before opening it – at 4″. Put each half together, folding in the tabs and bottom.
  • Add Tear n Tape about 1/2″ from edge, beginning at the cut edge of the box and wrapping around the bottom to the next cut edge. Do this for both sides of each box.

Adding Tear n Tape & Ribbon

  • Cut ribbon 24″. The purple ribbon is NOT a Stampin’ Up! product – shame on me… but the other is Gray Granite Textured Weave 1/2′ ribbon
  • Beginning at bottom of box and on the back side, wrap ribbon up to cut edge, create a loop and then back down on the same side of the box, then turning box over continue the wrapping process. TIP: You will notice in the picture that I unraveled only a portion of the Tear n Tape as I went – this prevents sticking to any of your surface area if you put the box down. I used glue dots at the end of the ribbon to hold it in place.

Adding ribbon

Adding Tear n Tape & Ribbon

Picture from the top after ribbon added

  • Cut your DSP 6 x 4 3/8, and score at 2 3/4 and 3 1/4. Burnish. This becomes your bottom. I used Golden Honey Specialty DSP for both boxes. Add a glue dot to each side of the “bottom” about 1/2″ in from edge. This holds the paper in place and is covered by the ribbon. Slip your DSP inside the box. Adhere a glue dot at the top, also where the ribbon is, again to hold the paper in place.
  • Embellish you Acetate Box front… I used Pearlized Doilies and colored them. The purple is done with Blackberry Bliss ink and a roller. It creates a soft look. The Daffodil Delight doily was colored using Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends. I wanted it to really stand out.

Acetate Card Box #2

  • Using your Stitched Shapes Dies, cut a circle. Stamp your sentiment: for the purple box I used Part of My Story stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink; for the Daffodil Delight box I used the Honey Bee stamp set and Memento Black ink.
  • Adhere the circle to the doily with liquid glue. Adhere to the box with dimensionals. Add Glitter Enamel Dots.
  • Using the Detailed Bee Dies, cut two bees for each box from another piece of the Specialty DSP. Color the stripes on the bees with Dark Basic Black Stampin Blends. Adhere with dimensionals.

Acetate Card Boxes and Detailed Bee Dies

I love these little boxes and so fun to decorate. I’m preparing card kits for some of my students and will fill these with the card cuts. I think they will enjoy the little extra surprise for them.

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Stamp Set and Flowering Foils DSP

Todays card features the fabulous Flowering Foils DSP that was available as a free item during Sale-a-bration. I know… I shouldn’t be promoting this DSP, but honestly, ANY DSP could be used and a coordinating cardstock to create this card. I love the layout and the elegance and the simplicity.

Before sharing the card I want to apologize for not posting the past couple of days. I have been cleaning my craft room – and quite frankly could not get to my stamping table. 😒 What a nightmare! Having said that, it’s still a work in progress – not quite finished, but workable…

Here are the deets…

  • Cardstock (Pool Party) 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4; 3 1/2 x 4 1/4
  • DSP of choice – 3 cut to 1 x 4 (this is Flowering Foils and I colored it with Stampin Blends – Light/ Dark Pool Party, Light/ Dark Granny Apple Green, Dark Daffodil Delight)
  • White Crinkle Ribbon
  • Detailed Band Dies

After coloring the Flowering Foils DSP, using your grid paper as a guide, adhere the center DSP to the smaller card stock with liquid glue. Starting with this center piece allows for perfect edges and balancing. Wrap the Whisper White Crinkle Ribbon around this and tie a bow. Secure with a glue dot. Stamp your sentiment (this is from Ornate Thanks stamp set – new for the 2020-21 catalogue and available now!) with Memento Black ink and cut with your Detailed Bands Dies. Adhere this diecut with dimensionals. Adhere this entire section, centering it, on the card front. Voila! Your card front is complete 😏

For the inside… Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4… stamp your sentiment using Pool Party ink and the Ornate Thanks stamp set. Remember this is available now as a premier suite of products! Adhere a scrap of the Flowering Foils DSP 1/4″ from bottom of cs. Adhere using liquid glue to the inside of the card.

For the envelope… I colored a 2 1/4 x 6 piece of the Flowering Foils DSP and adhered it to the envelope flap using liquid glue. Trim to fit. And voila again… your card is ready for mailing!
