Stampin’ Up! Sneaky Peek Two-Tone Flora

Good Sunday morning everyone! Who can tell me what happens just one week from today? 🎄That’s a hint. Yay! Christmas! A time for celebrating Christ’s birth. A time for sharing our love for one another. Rejoice!

Today I’m sharing a sneaky peek of new products from the Jan-Apri 2023 Mini Catalog. This is such a sweet, soft all occasion card with an absolutely beautiful die as the focus. But in this sneaky peek I will show you the other dies and the stamps in this set as well as the new DSP that coordinates with it. Let’s look at the card first.

Stampin' Up! Two-Tone Flora Dies

Is this gorgeousness or what?! It’s die cut with a single die with Thick Basic White card stock. I like to use the Thick paper for a die cut like this as it gives it more strength. You can see I added a Linen bow with a glue dot after stamping the sentiment (Inspired Thoughts stamp set) in Blushing Bride ink. Then with my paper snips I created the end and attached the stamped strip with dimensionals. Done!

Here’s the coordinating die.

Stampin' Up! Two-Tone Flora Dies.1

It looks as though I didn’t clean all the paper out of the die cut. Yep – I’ll have to do that prior to using it again. This decorated card front is 4 1/8 x 5 1/2. You could make it 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 prior to running it through the die cutter. And I layered this on coordinating Fancy Flora 6×6 DSP. Both were attached to the card base of Blushing Bride 4 1/45 x 11, scored at 5 1/2. Here’s a look at the DSP. Keep in mind it looks similar to oil paints, a Monet perhaps.

Stampin' Up! Fancy Flora 6x6 DSP, side 1

The colors in the DSP are Balmy Blue, Basic Gray, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Evening Evergreen, Fresh Freesia, Night of Navy, Orchid Oasis, Pool Party, Soft Sea Foam, Soft Suede, Soft Succulent.

Interestingly, my card uses Blushing Bride, Petal Pink and Merry Merlot + Pear Pizzazz for the green. And it works! Let’s look more closely at the stamp set and the other dies. I haven’t used other dies on this card – but will soon use in the future. :O)

The closest photo is those very stamps, stamped on paper to dimply ‘see’ what they look like and how they coordinate with one another. I’ve tried to put stamp them together with the stamps that coordinate. it isn’t perfect, but you can easily see how they work.

Stampin' Up! Two-Tone Flora Dies, 2

In this photo at left you see the coordinating floral and leaf dies. For each of the individual solid floral stamps, there is a coordinating die – and same is true for the leaves: a leaf spray + the two-leaf stamp.

Stampin' Up! Two-Tone Flora Bundle, inside

The large flower is stamped in Blushing bride and Merry Merlot for the detail. The detail doesn’t show very well :O( However, the two other flowers are stamped in Petal Pink with Merry Merlot for the detail and you can see how well that works. The same two-leaf stamp is used to stamp around the flowers with Pear Pizzazz ink. This was done on Basic White, then adhered to the inside of the card.

The sentiment on both the front and inside are stamped in Blushing Bride ink and come from Inspiring Thoughts stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Two-Tone Flora Bundle, completed card

The envelope got more of the very same pattern of Fancy Flora DSP trimmed to fit after adhering in place to the flap. The flower ‘burst’ is stamped in Petal Pink with Merry Merlot for detail. And here’s tip: stamp the more solid stamp as step 1, step 2 is the detail.

Stampin’ Up! Kraft Note Cards & Nature’s Harvest

Here it is Wednesday and in just two days I’ll be attending Stampin’ Up! Convention in Jacksonville. Of course a storm is headed there too… so I’m just a bit anxious. Keeping tabs on everything but definitely excited about the convention. It’s always a positive, upbeat experience. The atmosphere is ….. well, you gotta be there 😁

A couple of days ago I was using the Kraft Note Cards & Envelopes and there were two left in the package – so my thought was, use them! So I paired them with Nature’s Harvest stamp set & Memento ink.

Stampin' Up! Kraft Note Cards & Nature's Harvest.1

Stampin' Up! Kraft Note Cards & Nature's Harvest.2

The first card is done with a Water Painter & Whisper White Craft ink for the flower heads. They are definitely brighter & more intense in color. The stems and leaves are done with Watercolor Pencils. The second card is done with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen, so softer. And of course the Tailor Made Tag Die brings direct attention to the tag, not so much the flowers. I think I prefer the first card. The bow is Baker’s Twine Essential Pack, white. I cut a length and pulled the strands apart. It’s attached with a folded over glue dot. These cards are for someone moving, so the sentiments are perfect on both cards – and they come from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Kraft Note Cards & Envelopes & Nature's Harvest, inside.4

Both of the insides of the Note Cards are the same: the small floral bouquet is from Nature’s Harvest stamp set stamped in Memento Black ink. The color blotch is also from Nature’s Harvest and is stamped in So Saffron ink. The Basic White panel was added with liquid glue and the card was complete.

For the envelope, I added a Subtles 6×6 DSP in So Saffron to the envelope flap and trimmed it to fit for both envelopes. So, tell me, do you have a preference on cards? Do you like one better than the other?

If you would like to order from my online store, that’s really easy to do. And remember to use my current HOST CODE 4GWG47JC to earn credit from me. Here’s how it works… when you place an order of $50 or more (before shipping & taxes), you receive from me a SU! item valued up to $10 + Star-Studded Rewards.

Stampin’ Up! Kraft Note Cards & Happiness Abounds

Good Saturday morning… it is JUST getting daylight here in New Jersey ~ 7 AM and with the time change tonight it will still be very dark tomorrow at this point – ugh… Next week at this time, I will be attending the Stampin’ Up! Convention and will be in Jacksonville, FL with several Stampin’ Up buddies. I’ll send some photos of us having a good time. You can think about joining us next year :O) I have a cheerful card for you today using the Kraft Note Cards & envelopes and the Happiness Abounds bundle.

Stampin' Up! Kraft Note Cards & Happiness Abounds bundle.1

These Blossoming Happiness Dies dies are so fun to use. You can see the detail of the one die on the left. The other die I used for this card is the leaf die. I first stamped a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock with the leaf stamp from Happiness Abounds stamp set then die cut it. It’s perfect with this daisy punched using the Medium Daisy Punch. The middle of the daisy has a Daffodil Delight dot from the Glossy Dots Assortment. And the sentiments are from Happiness Abounds stamp set and I used Memento Black ink to stamp them. I appreciate the mix of fonts :O) I will be making several of these for a group that has a member moving and they wanted to write special notes. And since I’m making several, the Stamparatus will come in very handy to stamp the sentiments bing, bam, boom 😁

A couple of other tidbits about this card: I punched two daisies, adhered them together with liquid glue then added them to the card front with a single dimensional. The leaf was added with liquid glue, slipping it behind the daisy.

Stampin' Up! Kraft Note Cards with Happiness Abounds bundle.2

For the inside, I left room for comments and added just a simple floral bouquet at the bottom, stamped with Happiness Abounds stamp set & Memento ink on a Basic White panel.

Stampin' Up! Kraft Note Cards w/ Happiness Abounds.3

I decided not to do anything to the envelope. I know – just not right, right?! But I wanted to spend time on the card itself and I think the envelopes will not be kept. It’s a pretty little card and I think the recipient will like it. The Kraft Note Cards and Envelopes were new in the Annual catalog, so still available and reasonably priced.

If you would like to order from my online store, that’s really easy to do. And remember to use my current HOST CODE 4GWG47JC to earn credit from me.

Stampin’ Up! Fun Fold with New Framed Florets Bundle

WooHoo – it’s Friday – time for a fun fold AND the weekend :O) I’m using the all new Framed Florets Bundle, Fitting Florets DSP and the Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls. The papers in this DSP pack are beautiful – as you can see. They will be available to customers Nov 1 – Dec 31 or while supplies last. They are available to demonstrators now, so if you think you might want to join my team, think it through and give me abuzz – let’s talk. This could be part of your joining order :O) But – on to the card.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Fun Fold

I saw a card by Lynn Dunn and adapted it to use this wonderful new bundle. The Night of Navy card base is a standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, adhered with one of the patterns in the Fitting Florets DSP. I then took another piece of Night of Navy, scored in thirds and adhered it in the center so the card would open to the left. You could have it open the other direction, but I didn’t. I adhered another pattern of the Fitting Florets DSP to the front of the fold and decorated that: the wonderful leaf spray is die cut from Evening Evergreen card stock using the Framed Florets Dies. The flower bouquet was stamped in Memento ink on a Basic White piece using the Framed Florets stamp set. I colored it with Stampin’ Blends: Balmy Blue, Light Night of Navy, Soft Succulent and Light Evening Evergreen. This was die cut with the appropriate die from the Framed Florets Dies. I stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink on another Basic White piece and fussy cut it.To put the front together… Vellum from the Lovely Layers Vellum Pack adhered with just a bit of Stampin’ Seal (where the flower spray will go – so it doesn’t show), then the leaf spray adhered with dabs of liquid glue; the flower spray has dimensionals on back and is adhered over the leaf spray; the sentiment also has dimensionals and is placed beneath the floral spray. I added the three Adhesive-Backed Swirls to complete the front.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Fun Fold

Open the card… decorate the center panel with another piece of the Fitting Florets DSP. The sentiment panel simply has a sweet leaf spray stamped in Soft Succulent – and comes from the Framed Florets stamp set. And the card is done!

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Fun Fold.3

The envelope has more of the Fitting Florets DSP adhered to the flap and trimmed to fit. The envelope front has the same beautiful leaf spray that is on the card in Soft Succulent ink. And that’s it – simple enough already 😏

Stampin’ Up! Detailed Tags Dies in a card

It’s Sunday – and we had a full moon a couple of night ago – our daughter’s cats were carrying on at their house. We have a dog and it didn’t seem to bother him at all, thank goodness. So why do I mention this – not sure… perhaps it was remembering the many deer in our front yard last night and wondering if one had anything to do with the other. I don’t know.

Today’s card is made with the Detailed Tags Dies in the 2022-2023 Annual catalog – such a pretty set. I want to share a card that I made with this.

Stampin' Up! Detailed Tags Dies.1

Aren’t the colors pretty? Tahitian Tide & Orchid Oasis, with a bit of Rose Gold Specialty DSP. It’s obvious where I used the Rose Gold SDSP – the rose, and I removed some of the die cut pieces AND I fussy-cut around the outside. The butterfly I created by marking Basic White with Stampin’ Blends: Light Starry Sky and Light Daffodil Delight and die cut the image. It has two Glossy Dots Assortment in Pool Party on the butterfly.

Stampin' Up! Detailed Tags Dies.2

The centerpiece is the largest die in the Detailed Tags Die set and is die cut from from 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP – Tahitian Tide. I die cut another from Tahitian Tide card stock and adhered them together for strength before slipping a length of Natural Finish 7/8″ Ribbon through the openings. Once the rose and butterfly were attached with liquid glue I put dimensionals on the back and set it aside.

To the Thick Basic White card base I adhered a panel of Tahitian Tide (3 3/4 x 5). I then ran a slightly smaller Orchid Oasis panel through the Pretty Flowers embossing folder and added it to the Tahitian Tide. The dimensionals were already on the Detailed Tags Dies piece, so it was attached off-set as shown.

Stampin' Up! Detailed Tags Dies.3

For the inside I die cut a ‘spray’ with the Detailed Tags Dies in Rose Gold SDSP and added it to a piece of Basic White card stock. With that in place I stamped the sentiment: Go To Greetings stamp set in Orchid Oasis. This panel was added to a Tahitian Tide and into the inside of the card – done!

Stampin' Up! Detailed Tags Dies.4

The envelope was easy enough… more 2022-2024 In color 6×6 DSP for the envelope flap and another sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Orchid Oasis on the front. I like the contrast of the bright colors with white – it really makes it stand out.

Some of the products to make this card are from the Jul- Dec 2022 Annual Catalog. If you do not have a demonstrator and need catalogs please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. The other catalog available right now is the 2022 -2023 Annual Catalog . When ordering, please also use my current host code: TXBWJTMW and remember I offer Star-Studded Rewards.

Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Bundle Envelope Fun Fold

Hello again ~ Sat Sep 3, yikes the time is going f-a-s-t… Stampin’ Up has this super deal right now with Perfect Partners. What that means is they created dies to go with an existing stamp set and only during the month of September will they be available. Today I’m sharing some of the not so obvious dies in the bundle to create this fun envelope fold. Let’s take a peek.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Envelope Fun Fold.1

In this photo you can see the really fun apple blossoms and the wonderful branch. The flowers have intricate lines in each of the petals that really set them apart from other floral dies. And you can see there are two sizes of blossoms and the fun stamens as well. Gorgeousness. I added a single Glossy Dots Assortment in Daffodil Delight to the center of each blossom. And the branch is die cut from Soft Suede and has detail ridges and lines in it too – very delicate. The bottom front of this envelope fold is embossed in the Pretty Posies embossing folder. I like the added texture & pattern. The DSP is Gingham Cottage in Blushing Bride. I might note here that the smaller blossoms above were die cut from scrap of this DSP. The stamens were die cut from scrap of the Abigail Rose DSP used on the inside of the card. To make the v-shape for the distinctly ‘envelope’ card I used the Basic Borders Dies.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Envelope Fun Fold.2, inside

The inside shows more of the Apple Blossom Dies at the top with the sentiment banner – that stamp & die are from the Apple Blossom Bundle, and at the bottom with the beautiful scallop. What you see is a strip from the die cut, the bottom, and the very delicate upper scallop is the real deal. Both sentiments on this are from the Apple Blossom stamp set.

The upper portion of the envelope flap is covered in Abigail Rose DSP using a Smoky Slate piece to coordinate with the card base.

Stampin' Up! Apple Blossom Envelope Fun Fold.3

The photo above shows the entire length of the card – back side. It’s clear I used two sizes of the plaid from Gingham Cottage DSP – love the contrast.

Stampin' Up! Apple Blossom Envelope Fun Fold.4

For the envelope – more of the same Blushing Bride Gingham Cottage DSP for the flap. At the bottom of the envelope is the remainder of the scallop die cut from the Apple Blossom Dies. Here’s what I did… I began with a strip about 1 x 6 and used the scallop die close to one edge lengthwise. After running it through the Cut & Emboss machine it left three pieces – this is the last of those and the piece closest to the edge when die cut.

I can’t wait to play more with this Apple Harvest Bundle – such a beautiful set. The stamp set is from the Jul-Dec catalog, but the bundle is new. You can purchase each of these individually, but with 10% off when bundled, why would you?

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints and Sun Prints for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello & happy Thursday! It’s our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop with a color challenge… and you can see my card that I created for it. Nature’s Prints and the coordinating Sun Prints DSP are just so perfect together. It doesn’t mean they MUST be used together ~ they just CAN BE… and I did! And – it’s a fun fold to boot. Not sure what to call it… I’m going to call it an envelope fold, cuz that’s what it looks like to me. :O)

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints & Sun Prints, fun fold

I began with a piece of Pacific Point card stock as it coordinates so nicely with the Sun Prints DSP. I scored then trimmed the right side as shown… marking the center point and trimming 1″ in from the top & bottom to the center mark.. It really is important to be very precise in your cutting – ask me how I know that! Trim 1/8″ from the left edge of the card base so it does not interfere with the fold. Cut your Sun Prints DSP: panel for the left front and another for the right pointy part. Card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post. Cut your center panel in Basic White. Stamp this Basic White panel.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints w/ Sun Prints DSP, fun fold

I used the leaf stamp from Nature’s Prints and Starry Sky ink, stamped the first leaf full strength and continued with the next two without re-inking. I stamped the sentiment from Nature’s Prints stamp set in the same Starry Sky ink, stamped off once. Adhere this to the inside of the card.

Back to the front of the card… I used a 1 5/9 circle from the Layering Circles Dies to cut the circle in the pointy part of the fun fold. I cut another circle in Thick Basic White with the same circle die and stamped it: sentiment in stamped off Starry Sky, then the two portions of the fern – inking, stamping off, then stamping in place. The sentiment and the fern leaf are from the Nature’s Prints stamp set. I closed the card and adhered the circle to the left portion of the card but in the place of the hole of the right side. Does that make sense? I adhered it with liquid glue.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints with Sun Prints , fun fold

To keep the envelope fun fold closed, I cut a piece of the Sun Prints DSP with the very smallest of the Layering Circles Dies.. I also cut another circle from Pacific Point card stock and adhered these two together, put a few dimensionals on the back and with the card closed, put the small circle in place.

Stampin' Up! nature's Prints w/ Sun Prints, fun fold

I stamped the sentiment – again from Nature’s Prints stamp set in full strength Starry Sky on a Basic White strip. I did a bit of fussy cutting then adhered it to another piece of Pacific Point and adhered it to the card front on the cut ‘like envelope’ side. I added three Classic Matte Dots and the card was done!

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints w/ Sun Prints, fun fold

For the envelope… another of the wonderful nature images stamped on the envelope front and flap with Starry Sky ink, the flap image stamped off. And that was it! Pretty simple really. The tricky part is the cutting to the center of the piece and trimming the DSP perfectly.

Now, take a few moments to work your way through this fun hop.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Hello Card

Hello FRIENDS! Yesterday I shared a card using the Hello Harvest Bundle from the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog. Well, I couldn’t put it down ~ so bear with me while I share another card using more of the dies and stamps. My colors were Gray Granite, Pool Party & Soft Succulent. Let’s take a look…

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Bundle

What do you think? Does this look like a pumpkin? My hubby doesn’t think so 😩, but it does to me! Due to some experienced gardeners, pumpkins come in all colors these days. Mine began with Basic White, die cut with the Rustic Harvest Dies. I then used my Blending Brushes to add some color: a bit of Gray Granite ink, then Mango Melody ink – very lightly. These are two dies for the pumpkin body and another for the stem. I adhered all parts together with liquid glue, put dimensionals on the back and set it aside. My next step was to run a Basic White panel through the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and add color to it with Blending Brushes and Gray Granite ink then Pool Party ink. Once I had it the way I wanted, I adhered it to a slightly larger Pool Party card stock, added dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the Gray Granite card base. I pulled out this leaf stamp from the Hello Harvest stamp set and Soft Succulent ink. I stamped off, then with a Sponge Dauber added a bit of Gray Granite ink on some of the leaf tips, then stamped it on a Basic White scrap. I did this three times, varying where I added the Gray Granite ink with the Sponge Dauber, then die cut each one with the leaf die from the Rustic Harvest Dies. I really like this leaf! Next I stamped the cute flower from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Memento ink and colored it with Stampin’ Blends in Mango Melody. These three flowers were die cut with the flower die in the Rustic Harvest Dies. I die cut various tendrils from Evening Evergreen card stock. Now everything was stamped, colored, and die cut, I could put the card front pieces together.

I lay the pieces out first so as to get the layering right… and in this case, I started with the leaves, then the pumpkin, flowers and finally the tendrils. Adhere in place on the card front: leaves with liquid glue; pumpkin of course is on dimensionals; flowers… one is bent so it has glue while the other two are on dimensionals; tendrils are glued as well. Final touches… a double bow made by cutting the Open Weave 3/8″ Ribbon in Soft Succulent, in half lengthwise, looping twice and securing with Simply Elegant Trim in Gold. I adhered this in place with a glue dot; and three Amber Gems from the Leaf Label and Amber Gems Combo Pack.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Bundle, inside

For the inside, stamp the Hello in Soft Succulent ink on the Basic White standard size panel. Of course this comes from the Hello Harvest stamp set! Then stamp that sweet floral bouquet in stamped off Pool Party ink. Adhere this to a Pool Party card stock piece cut just slightly larger, then into the inside of the Gray Granite card base.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Bundle, card & envelope

For the envelope, again using the same leaf from the Hello Harvest stamp set, I stamped off with the Soft Succulent ink then used a Sponge Dauber and Gray Granite ink to add ink to the leaf stamp on the tips, then stamped on the front of the envelope, reinked in the same way and stamped on the flap. The card is finis! I really really like this card! What do you think? Does the main image look like a pumpkin or not?

Stampin’ Up! Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi folks! It’s time for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. We have a sketch challenge that’s extra good…

This card has a background of Timber 3D Embossing Folder on a Basic White panel. It was adhered to the Thick Basic White card base. On top of that are a strip of Gingham Cottage DSP from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog on a piece of So Saffron card stock adhered in place. The Pear Pizzazz strip is adhered with liquid glue, with the die cut pieces attached with dimensionals. The die cut pieces are Rings of Love DSP, a free item during Sale-a-bration die cut with the largest Layering Circles die. Isn’t this DSP gorgeous? As I mentioned, it’s FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 purchase as long as supplies last… ok, I divert. The DSP is adhered to a scalloped Night of Navy piece, die cut with the largest of the scalloped Layering Circles dies. The Basic White strip is stamped in Night of Navy ink using Happiness Abounds stamp set. I added three Night of Navy Solid Faceted Gems as a final touch.

What do we do with a sketch like this?it inspired me to create a couple of different cards… so totally different, yet both the same. Let’s take a peek at the first card.
Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop 7/21.1

For the inside… I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink using the Happiness Abounds stamp set. I also stamped the leaf image in second generation Pear Pizzazz ink right over it – of course on a Basic White panel. I found on my desk this ‘frame’ die cut using the Deckled Rectangles Dies, and added it to the edge of the Basic White panel, then attached it to the inside of the card.

Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop 7/21, inside

And now… the second card.

Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop, card 2.2

The card base is Melon Mambo card stock, layered with Wonderful World DSP on a Basic White strip, adhered to the card base. I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut yet another piece of the Wonderful World DSP. This is attached to a scalloped die cut with the largest of the Layering Circles Dies in scallop from Basic White. The same sentiment was used on the Basic White strip, but stamped in Mossy Meadow ink. I used three Melon Mambo Solid Faceted Gems for a bit of glam.

For the inside…

Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop, card 2, inside

I first stamped the sentiment from Happiness Abounds stamp set in Melon Mambo ink. The rose is Melon Mambo ink – second generation, but should have been at least third generation, as it covers up the sentiment.

Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop, Card 1
Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop, Card 2

Both of these cards are beautiful ~ one is significantly softer while the other is more bold, but they tell the truth either way. Now, enjoy the hop as you move around the various blogs.
