Stampin’ Up! Sneaky Peek At The Pond Hinge Fun Fold

Happy Happy 2023!I’ve been a bit out of the loop for a bit – hubby had surgery & my attention was all about that, then Christmas & family – and now, here we are. I hope you had a really good holiday, however you celebrate things. Ours was quieter, of course, but still wonderful. We are so blessed with wonderful family. – and hubby is improving every day. 👍🙏

My card today is a sneaky peek at one of the HOST stamp options for the Jan-Apr 2023 Mini Catalog, which will be available come Jan 5. And that’s just really soon! I’ve also used some DSP that is free with a qualifying order during the Jan-Feb Sale-a-bration period – Dainty Flowers DSP.

Stampin' Up! At The Pond Hinge Fun Fold

Isn’t this a cute, sassy frog? I’m going to name him Alfred – and no, I have no idea where that came from. 😀 You can see there are no flowers on this side of the Dainty Flowers DSP – it looks similar to watercolors – love, love. And the hinge flap has a sentiment from another new stamp set called Sending Support – also FREE with a qualifying order during Jan-Feb Sale-a-bration. I’ve die cut the sentiment with Stylish Shapes Dies. I extended the length of the die cut a bit to make the sentiment fit. But I’ll explain that.

Hinge Flap Fun Fold:

  • Cut card base 81/2 x 5 1/2 and score at 4 1/4 on the long side.
  • Trim off 1 1/2 from the long side; score this at 4 1/4
  • Adhere this strip to the card base about 3/4″ from bottom with the fold on the edge (I adhered it lower and don’t like where it is!) This is now your hinge flap!

Decorate:

  • Cut panels of DSP: front – 1 3/4 x 2 1/2; hinge flap – 1 1/4 x 4; inside – 1 3/4 x 4; envelope flap – 2 1/4 x 6
  • Cut Basic White panels: front – 2 1/2 x 4; inside 4 x 5 1/4; sentiment banner for hinge flap 1 1/4 x 3
  • On the front panel:
    • Stamp the frog in Old Olive – this is a two-step stamp, so stamp the inner then the outline
    • Stamp the log in Soft Suede – again aa two-step stamp, stamp the inner then then outline stamp
    • Stamp the bee in Crushed Curry & Memento inks – CC for the wings, then the body in Memento
    • Add this panel to the card front
  • On the inside panel:
    • Add the 1 3/4 x 4 DSP to the far right edge
    • Stamp the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry ink using the Sending Support stamp set
    • Adhere this to the inside of the card, covering where the hinge flap is attached
  • On the hinge flap:
    • Add DSP to the flap (1 1/4 x 4)
    • Stamp the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry ink from Sending Support stamp set on the remaining Basic White strip
    • Die cut using the Stylish Shapes Dies: Die cut about 2/3 of length by placing the top cutting plate so it covers just 2/3 of die; run it through the die cutting machine; replace die to cover other end of stamped sentiment, matching or lining up die, then placing top cutting plate just over that area to be die cut, run it through the die cutting machine – and done!
    • Attache die cut sentiment to hinge flap with dimensionals
  • Add Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to both hinge flap and card front

All that’s left to do now is the envelope & it is so easy…

  • Add 2 1/4 x 6 piece of Dainty Flowers DSP to the envelope flap & trim to fit
  • Stamp the small bees 3 times on envelope front in Crushed Curry ink using the At The Pond stamp set

Stampin’ Up! Texture Chic and Snowflakes

Good Tuesday morning! I was driving around town yesterday doing errands and oh my goodness – the tree colors are spectacular! The yellows, golds, oranges and rust, reds – they are in their prime showing off. It was simply jaw-dropping stunning. Of course – that has nothing to do with my card today, I just simply HAD to share the glory that is out there… Today’s card… Wintry 3D Embossing Folder (using the snowflake), Taylor Made Tags and the wonderful Texture Chic DSP share the spotlight on this card.

Stampin' Up! Texture Chic DSP & Snowflakes.1

I used the Chic Dies that coordinate with the Season of Chic stamp set to create the die cut snowflakes: Basic White, Soft Succulent and some Kraft card stock. I used the Tailor Made Tags Dies for, what else, the various tags :O) Two of them are die cut from Texture Chic Specialty DSP and the top one is is Basic White stamped with Pool Party ink. Everything is layered: some with liquid adhesive, others with dimensionals. The bow is from the fabulous Threaded Twine. I simply cut a length and pulled several of the threads apart and made a bow. It has a very natural look that I like a lot. Once I did all the die cuts, I put the card together: Crumb Cake card stock for the card base. This was layered with a panel of Basic White run through the Wintry 3D embossing folder twice (to fill the page so to speak). OH… I DID use a Blending Brush to add a bit of Crumb Cake ink to various snowflakes – to give it a bit of a vintage look.Then the rest was added as you see. I die cut the larger snowflake twice: once in Basic White, again in Soft Succulent and adhered them together, holding all the inner pieces together as best I could. For glam I added the Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels in the center of many of the snowflakes.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic.inside.2

On a Basic White panel I stamped the snowflake (love this stamp!!!) in Pool Party ink then the ‘splatter’ stamp also from the Season of Chic stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink. So here’s my confession… I wish I had done it the other way: snowflake in Evening Evergreen and splatter in Pool Party. As it is the splatter is too strong, it shows more than the snowflake 😦 Once the panel was added to the inside of the card – it was done.

Stampin' Up! Texture Chic & Snowflakes.3

For the envelope, more of the Texture Chic DSP on the envelope flap, adhered & trimmed to fit. I stamped the snowflake in Evening Evergreen ink and love it! Of course, it is from Season of Chic stamp set.

Stampin’ Up! Perched In A Tree Support

Good morning, good morning. I’ve an encouragement card for you today. A friend of mine has had some health issues for a bit & just needs a ‘pick-me-up’, so I send cards every now & then to let her know she’s in my prayers and not forgotten in her pain. I’ve used Perched In A Tree stamp set with it’s coordinating Aspen Tree Dies – one of my favs.

Stampin' Up! Perched in a Tree.1

I’ve tried coloring this sweet bird similar to a chickadee – not sure that worked so that’s why I’m telling you :O). I used Watercolor Pencils after stamping with Memento ink on a Basic White scrap: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral , Whisper White and then blended with a Blender Pen to smooth the lines. It was then die cut with the appropriate die from the Aspen Trees Dies. My next step was to die cut several of these gorgeous leaves from the Aspen Trees Dies: Brushed Metallic paper & Copper Foil Sheets. I used a circle on my desk die cut for another project to create the sun/ moon. I used a Blending Brush with So Saffron ink then Mango Melody ink around the edges. It isn’t real bright cuz it’s on Gray Granite card stock. I used another Blending Brush to add some Balmy Blue ink all over, making it look like sky. It’s very subtle, but definitely there in person. I stamped the tree branch in Soft Suede ink and the sentiment in Memento ink – both from the Perched in a Tree stamp set. The bird was adhered over the branch with dimensionals, then the leaves added with liquid glue. The center leaf is adhered with liquid glue at the stem and a dimensional on its leaf tip for more depth. This panel was added to a Basic Gray card base.

Stampin' Up! Perched in a Tree. Support.2

For the inside I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink using Perched In A Tree stamp set, then used a Blending Brush to add a frame of color to the Basic White panel. I included the large die cut leaf from the Aspen Trees Dies with liquid glue. This leaf was die cut from Copper Foil Sheets. The panel was added to the inside of the Basic Gray card base.

Stampin' Up! Perched in a Tree. Support.3

For the envelope, stamp the branch again with Soft Suede ink on the front. Add a strip of Basic Gray that has been run through the Timber 3D embossing folder to the flap, trim to fit. This could so easily be a masculine card, and I don’t have many of those. However, as I mentioned earlier, this for a woman friend this time.

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Watercolor Technique #4

Hello fellow stampers – it’s Saturday and we are into AUGUST! I cannot believe it – where did summer go? As I mentioned min a previous post, I held a watercolor techniques class and am sharing the creations as I complete them. Today’s is a Basic White notecard & envelope using watercolor technique #4. Do you remember what that was on the Stampin’ Up! video? Truth be told, I wouldn’t either if I hadn’t taken some serious notes 😁. Technique #4 is this: stamp the Fluid 100 watercolor paper with stamp & ink of choice; use the Water Painter to draw color into the image, limiting the amount of ink. My first image was the leaf branch from the Cottage Rose stamp set.

Today I stamped the single rose from that same stamp set in Polished Pink ink on Fluid 100 watercolor paper & using the small tip Water Painter, I drew the color into the image. Once dry I die cut it with the Cottage Flower Dies and I also die cut the leaf I had prepped for class. I adhered the two together with liquid glue and then lightly curled both the flower & leaves with my fingers.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Watercolor #4

Before getting too far ahead of myself, I adhered a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to a piece of Basic White, put dimensionals on the back and added it to a Basic White notecard. I die cut a circle with the Stylish Shapes Dies and Lovely Layers Vellum and adhered the two watercolored pieces with glue dots to the vellum. I stamped the sentiment in Smoky Slate on a Basic White scrap using the Charming Sentiments stamp set, then die cut it with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes Dies. I put a couple of mini dimensionals on the back and adhered it in place. The last couple of things: a Metallic Woven Ribbon bow in Sweet Sorbet was attached with a glue dot; three Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for glam ~ and the card front was done.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Watercolor #4, inside

For the inside, a simple sentiment from the Charming sentiments stamp set was added in Smoky slate ink. And for the envelope, a single rose from Cottage Rose stamp set stamped in Polished Pink on the flap and the front.

Stampin’ UP! Seasons of Chic Leaves

Except for yesterdays Blog Hop in which I participated, I have focused on the Seasons of Chic Bundle for my cards this week. I am enamored with the versatility of this stamp set & dies. Today’s card is no exception. And I’ve certainly let you know how I gravitate toward monochromatic cards.

Seasons of Chic.1

The card base is thick Basic White. The next two layers are Shimmery White Paper. It’s a cross between Basic White and Very Vanilla, just not so creamy as the VV. Here’s what I did…

  • Die cut the front panel of Shimmery White card stock with Stitched Rectangles Dies. I used the smallest of the large set of dies.
  • Use Foam adhesive strips to line the rectangle and portions of the card to layer on another panel of Shimmery White card stock. SEE PHOTO.
Foam adhesive strips
  • Remove backing on strips and adhere to the slightly larger Shimmery White Paper.
  • Stamp the two-step leaf from Seasons of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink ink and Sahara Sand ink (both second generations), then die cut with the Chic Dies. It’s nearly impossible to see in this photo, but the vein stamp is in Sahara Sand ink, the other leaf stamp was stamped first in second generation Petal Pink ink.
  • Die cut two more leaves in Shimmery White.Layer the three leaves together adhering with liquid glue along the stems.
  • Tie a bow with strands of Linen Thread & Simply Elegant Trim in Gold, together and around the stems. Add a touch of liquid glue to the knot so it stays in place.
  • Put dimensionals on the stamped leaf and adhere to the die cut frame cutout.
  • Add three Iridescent Pearls Basic Jewels too the card.
  • Adhere the two Shimmery White Paper panels to the Thick Basic White card base.
Seasons of Chic. Leaves.1

For the inside… Stamp the sentiment in Sahara Sand ink from the Seasons of Chic stamp set. Add two more of the die cut leaves (these are smaller & different from those on front, but die cut from Shimmery White Paper) to the Basic White panel. Adhere panel to the inside of the card. DONE!

Seasons of Chic. Leaves. inside

For the envelope, I stamped this stunning leaf (w/ veins) to the front and on the flap ~ second generation Sahara Sand ink. Oh boy… I really, really like this card! What can I say… this Season of Chic Bundle is a MUST HAVE!

Seasons of Chic. Leaves. 4

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish with Layers

WooHoo! It is for many a l-o-n-g weekend! Happy Memorial Day celebrations. Thanks you Veterans for your service to our country. We DO appreciate you! I’ve another easy card for you today, creating with the Deckled Rectangles Dies and Designer Series Paper, Awash in Beauty 12 x 12, and the Biggest Wish stamp set.

Biggest Wish w/ Layers.1

This card has many layers and it’s colorful. Polished Pink is one of the In Colors from last year and it is b-r-i-g-h-t! And… it has made, in my opinion, this particular pattern or patterns of DSP really pop.

  • Begin with a card base of Polished pink. Layer the Basic White panel, then the DSP (Awash in Beauty) that has been die cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Dies. Adhere these together as shown.
  • Using the 4th largest of the Deckled Rectangles, cut another of the Polished Pink. Layer a panel of Basic White then the final layer of Awash in Beauty, also die cut with the Deckled Rectangles. Adhere all together.
  • Wrap these layers with 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon in White and secure in back with Stampin’ Seal
  • Wrap Open Weave Ribbon in Polished Pink directly over the Organdy Ribbon and secure in back with more Stampin’ Seal. Slip a length of the Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon under the Organdy and tie a bow on the far left.
  • Stamp the ‘Hello’ in Mossy Meadow ink from the Biggest Wish stamp set and die cut with one of the Stylish Shapes Dies.
  • Stamp the ‘friend’ from the same stamp set (love the varied fonts here!) in Polished Pink ink and fussy cut. Put dimensionals on the back of this word and add it to the die cut circle.
  • Put dimensionals on the back of the die cut circle and add it over the ribbon. For centering, I used the bottom of the word ‘hello’ to line up with the bottom of the ribbon
  • Add three Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the circle and the front is complete.

True confessions… I have not completed the inside of this card. I simply could not decide what I wanted. I do not have, but am ordering today, the True Beauty Bundle that coordinates with this DSP. When it arrives, I will complete the inside and share it with you. For now, I have used the largest Deckled Rectangles Die to cut an inner layer to decorate. It is, of course in Basic White.

Biggest Wish w/ Layers, inside

For the envelope… more of the Mossy Meadow Awash in Beauty DSP for the flap. For the front of the envelope, I took an edge of the rectangle die cut, trimmed the ends and added it to the bottom. Once that coordinating True Beauty Bundle is here, I will add one of the floral stamps :O)

Biggest Wish w/ Layers.3

Stampin’ Up! Abigail Rose for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello stampers! Today is the always fun Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. You will see some fabulous creations along the hop, so I encourage you to ‘do the tour’. If you have come from Tara’s blog, welcome. If you have simply hopped in, thank you for joining us today.

And our sketch challenge is this…

And here’s the card I created for the challenge. It uses the Abigail Rose 12 x 12 DSP as the focal point. Don’t you just love this DSP? Gorgeous… I colored the one flower with Stampin’ Blends Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight. For background interest I used the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder on a Basic White panel and added it directly to the Thick Basic White card base. The next two layers are a piece of Early Espresso and the colored Abigail Rose DSP, adhered together then popped on dimensionals and added to the card front. The sentiment panel is stamped in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White scrap, then added to another strip of Calypso Coral adhered to the front on dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Go To Greetings stamp set. Finally, two Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels were colored with the Dark Calypso Coral Blends and added beneath the sentiment.

Abigail Rose.1

For the inside of the card, I stamped one of the smaller flowers from the coordinating Cottage Rose stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White panel, then colored it with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends. This was adhered to a slightly larger panel of Early Espresso card stock, then added to the inside of the card. Voila!

Abigail Rose, inside

For the envelope, I used the medium rose from Cottage Rose stamp set and stamped the envelope front – Early Espresso ink of course and three more on the envelope flap. I chose not to color these – don’t ask me why, I don’t know. And that was it. Love the versatility of this layout and this DSP. Just change the sentiment and it could be sympathy, birthday, get well – you name it. It isn’t a masculine card, but change the DSP for that :O)

Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail Scene for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend… do you have something fun planned? Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! If you have come from Tara’s fun creation, welcome to the hop here at my blog. There will be lots of variety today, I betcha!

It’s the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop… with a challenge, of course…

And here’s what I did…

Let’s Set Sail Scene.1

I began with a piece of Hues of Happiness 12 x 12 DSP, a blending Brush or two and several ink colors to create a brilliant sun: Whisper White, Mango Melody, Pale Papaya, Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze. I also some sticky notes so as I created the gradient, I was keeping kind of a line as I varied the colors. I really like how these just flow together. Once I got it sort of the way I wanted it, I removed the sticky notes and with Pale Papaya and Calypso Coral, went over the entire area to remove distinguishing lines. I then die cut two circles using the Stylish Shapes Dies. Next I took the long stamp in Let’s Set Sail stamp set and Balmy Blue ink and began creating a water layer on a panel of Basic White. These were the beginning steps for my scene. I adhered the largest circle with liquid glue to this Basic White panel, then put dimensionals on the smaller circle and layered it on top, matching the lines created when using the sticky notes and Blending Brush. I wanted some sparkle, so pulled out the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer Paper in Tahitian Tide and with the Sailboat Builder Punch, punched a sailboat. I placed the various pieces of the sailboat then added mini dimensionals in all the right places and dabs of liquid glue in others and put it in place. I stamped the water shadow just beneath the boat in Pacific Point ink. The birds were stamped with Memento ink. The sentiment also comes from Let’s Set sail stamp set and it was stamped in Balmy Blue and fussy cut. I put dimensionals on the back and adhered it to the card. I then colored two Rhinestone Basic Jewels with Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends and put them in place – card front was ready to put together.

I adhered the completed front to a piece of Balmy Blue just slightly larger, put dimensionals on the back and added it to a Thick Basic White card base. Front done!

Let’s Set Sail Scene, inside

For the inside I cut two very thin strips: one from the paper I had colored to create the suns and another from the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer paper in Tahitian Tide. These were adhered with liquid glue to the Basic White panel. I then stamped the sentiment – yep! – Let’s Set Sail stamp set, in Balmy Blue ink. This panel was adhered to another piece of Balmy Blue card stock then added to the inside of the card. This card is perfect for so many occasions: graduation, Father’s Day, promotion, retirement, etc.

Let’s Set Sail Scene.3

For the envelope, I took another part of the Hues of Happiness 12 x 12 DSP and added it to the flap, trimmed to fit. For the front, I stamped the water in stamped-off Balmy Blue ink then stamped the boat/ mast in Pacific Point ink and the two sails in Pale Papaya ink. All done! What do you think? Does the envelope look a bit like a scene in itself? I think so :O)

Stampin’ Up! Triple Stamping w/ Cottage Rose

Hello again… it’s FRIDAY! Do you have big plans for the weekend? We have a concert on Sunday and rehearsal with orchestra from 9-12 on Saturday morning. Plus the weather is supposed to be rainy, windy, cold – so I won’t be playing in the garden for sure!

We had card class today & I chose to use the Cottage Rose stamp set for a bit of triple stamping. It is really quick and easy and makes a beautiful card that… depending on sentiment used, could be birthday or sympathy or thinking of you. I stuck with just the single stamp set and chose, well, you’ll see. :O)

Triple stamping w/ Cottage Rose.1

Isn’t this just lovely? And if you wanted, you could choose to color one of the roses, leaves, but I really like this just the way it is. Perhaps I’ll do one and color it, just to see if I like it. Anyway – here are the details on how to do this:

  • Cut the card stocks
    • Sweet Sorbet: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4; 4 1/4 x 3; 3 1/4 x 2
    • Basic White: 4 x 5 1/4 (2); 4 x 2 3/4; 3 x 1 3/4
  • Stamp sentiment in upper left corner of smallest panel of Basic White: Memento ink using the Cottage Rose stamp set
  • Layer Basic White panels together & adhere with either removable adhesive (which SU! does not sell!) or you may use glue dots.
  • Stamp with Basic White layers in place all over the panels. I recommend pressing firmly but do not wiggle, just press firmly.
Triple stamping example
  • Take Basic White layers apart being careful not to tear paper where adhered together
  • Add largest panel to card front; add next layer to Sweet Sorbet layer then to card front, matching flower patterns; add top layer to Sweet Sorbet panel, put dimensionals on back and add to card front.
  • Almost done… add two Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels… and card front is done :O)
Triple Stamping w/ Cottage Rose.1

Now for the inside: With the remaining 4 x 5 1/4 panel, stamp the single rose from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Sweet Sorbet ink and add to the inside of the card.

Cottage Rose, inside

For the envelope, I stamped the same rose from Cottage Rose stamp set in Sweet Sorbet on the envelope front. Ink the stamp and continue inking, stamping for the envelope flap.
