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.

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.

Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles take Two

Happy post Mother’s Day – I hope all those nurturing women realize how precious they are! Today’s card will put a mile on your face: bright, cheerful and well, just lovely. Let’s have a look.

Sending Smiles take 2

I’ve used the new Sending Smiles bundle (coordinating Sending Dies), Fern 3D Embossing Folder (it’s gorgeous!) 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP and 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots. For the sentiment I used Nature’s Prints stamp set – also a newbie, Lovely Layers Vellum and the Banners Pick a Punch. You could take this same layout and create this card using all the new In Colors. I haven’t, but you could. Let’s do the step by step…

  • Run a panel of Basic White through the Fern 3D embossing Folder (4 1/8 x 5 3/8). This folder makes a very nice impression. If you want it a bit more, you can lightly spray it with water and it leaves a deeper impression.
  • Add this panel to a Thick Basic White card base with liquid glue.
  • Cut a piece 2 x 3 1/2 from Sweet Sorbet 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP
  • Cur another piece from the Layering Vellum pack that is 2 x 3
  • Place the two panels at an angle on the card front and adhere. To do that with the vellum panel use just a bit of Stampin’ Seal.
  • Stamp the flower in Sweet Sorbet on a Basic White scrap & die cut. Set aside.
  • Stamp the larger stem in the new Parakeet Party ink on Basic White. Stamp it again in Garden Green and die cut both. I removed the Garden green leaves from the stem with paper snips and added them to the Parakeet Party stem, off-setting a bit so both colors show: the single leaf was added with liquid glue, the others with dimensionals. Adhere the stem directly to the card front with liquid glue, then add the flower on dimensionals
  • I added a banner (5/8 by about 3 3/4) from the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP in Sweet Sorbet. The end was trimmed with the Banners Pick a punch, then adhered with dimensionals.
  • I used Nature’s Prints stamp set for my sentiment, stamped in Memento ink – cuz I really really like the font. This was die cut with the amazing Stylish Shapes Dies. Add this to the card front, dimensionals on the top & liquid glue on the banner.
  • For a final touch, I popped on two 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots in Parakeet Party and the card front was done.
Sending Smiles take two, inside

I kept the inside super easy but wanted the colors to come through. A 4 x 5 1/4 panel of the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP in Sweet Sorbet was added to the inside with liquid glue. Then I cut a panel of Basic White 3 3/4 x 5, stamped the flower in Sweet Sorbet, center with Daffodil Delight and the stem with Parakeet Party, adhered it to the inside and bingo.

Sending Smiles take 2

For the envelope, I created the very same flower for the envelope front: stem in Parakeet Party, flower in Sweet Sorbet and flower center in Daffodil Delight. The flap got more of the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP, this time in Parakeet Party – done, done. Love how cheerful and friendly this card is.

Stampin’ Up! W-V Fun Fold w/ Abstract Beauty and Butterflies

Fun Folds are just that – f-u-n to create. And this one is so easy, although it looks complicated, it isn’t. I’m continuing with a theme of sorts, Bugs or Butterflies using the Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 DSP to attract the butterflies. Let’s take a peek…

Brilliant Wings Dies & Abstract Beauty.1

Here you can easily see the W-V fold of the card and I’ve added three of the Brilliant Wings Dies in various places. Cut out of the DSP or vellum or combining the two papers, the butterflies appear almost real. Here’s another photo with the card flat.

Brilliant Wings Dies & Abstract Beauty.2

You may be saying, but there’s no place write… so flip the card over and this is the perfect place for notes.

W-V Fun Fold, back.3

Night of Navy was used for the card base, and Crushed Curry card stock to coordinate with the DSP. In these photos, it almost looks orange! On the butterflies are holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add some glam; Basic White for the sentiments stamped in Night of Navy ink come from Artfully Layered stamp set. I embossed the Crushed Curry card stock using the Hive 3D EF prior to adhering them. Here are a few more photos… and yes, there are two cards, so you will notice the butterflies are cut from other papers in the Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 DSP pack and the envelope flaps are other papers in the pack.

This is a really fun card to make ~ let me see if I can give you some pointers for putting it together. Card cuts are listed below. One of the important parts is making certain that sentiment on the back panel is centered. I tend to use my grid paper to line things up just right.

Adhere the floral panel and the embossed pieces in the appropriate places using the photos above as your guide. Adhere the sentiment panels (the Night of Navy square) to the far right panel, again using your grid paper to make certain it is centered. The reason for this is… the V panel when the card is closed, covers this completely, so you want it just right. :O)

Adhering the V panel before decorating the card is next: lay the V panel on top of the sentiment panel, centering it. No glue at this point! Now close that inner W to see where it will ‘sit’ on the W (you are adhering the V to the fold that is closest to the flat portion of the card!); then lift the W, add a bit of glue to the V on the portion that will be adhered to the card and close that first W on the V. Once that dries sufficiently, close the card completely and fold the embossed portion of the V onto the card front panel (the floral piece). Note where that will ‘sit’, open the card and add liquid glue to that portion of the V, close the card again and adhere. Bingo! Now decorate as desired. YAY!!! You did it 😏

Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 DSP is not carrying over to the new cattie. Nor are the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Brilliant Wings Dies IS carrying over, just not in the bundle with the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set. Night of Navy & Crushed Curry card stocks ARE in the new cattie, as are Basic White products. Do share with me what you create with this wonderful fun fold :O).

Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday! Today is the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop and the challenge is flowers – a real spring thing, right? And here’s my card…

Pansy Patch.1

This is the right time of year for pansies isn’t it… when it’s still a bit cool and not wicked hot that makes everything melt. I began by embossing with the Greenery folder and a Basic White panel. This is a narrow embossing folder and therefore with a wider sheet of card stock it’s important to match the embossed portion when running it through again. I think you can see that the embossing matches perfectly – yay! That panel was adhered directly to the Thick Basic White card base.

Next I took the beautiful Pansy Petals 12 x 12 DSP and cut three panels 1 x 4 1/4. These were adhered with liquid glue to an Evening Evergreen panel just slightly larger than the three when put side by side with just a bit of space in between (3 1/4 x 4 3/8). I wrapped that with the the beautiful (and springy) Grossgrain Ribbon in Highland Heather and tied a knot, securing it with a glue dot.

Stamp the more solid pansy in Pale Papaya ink, stamping off once. Stamp the shading stamp in full strength Pale Papaya. Stamp the inner in Blushing Bride and color the center with Daffodil Delight. That doesn’t really show as I ended up adding a jewel in the center :O). Die cut with the Pansy Dies; put dimensionals on the back and attach over the ribbon. Now die cut the two leaf pieces with Soft Succulent card stock and Evening Evergreen, putting them together with liquid glue. Slip this leaf behind the pansy adhering with liquid glue. Add the Holiday Gems as centers for the two pansies as shown – and the card front is done!

Pansy Patch, inside

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered that to an Evening Evergreen piece slightly larger and those two were attached to the inside of the card. I added three more of the Holiday Basic Jewels and the card was complete.

On the envelope front I stamped the smaller pansy from the Pansy Patch stamp set: background is Pale Papaya stamped off once; shading is Pale Papaya full strength; center shading is Calypso coral and the very center is Daffodil Delight. The envelope back got more of the Pansy Petals 12 x 12 DSP. LOVE this card ~ so friendly and fresh… and versatile!

Products to make this card 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. AND… I have the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog and can send that as well! When ordering, please also use current host code: Y4NW3AK.

Stampin’ Up! Easter Friends Fun Card

Hello again! It’s a cold Tuesday morning and I have a fun, quick and easy card for you today that just shouts SPRING. It’s made with the Easter Friends stamp set (the bunny) and it’s cute.

Easter Friends, front.1

I began by stamping the bunny in Crumb Cake ink on a Basic White panel 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 scored at the top 1/2″ I colored his nose with a Petal Pink marker. I adhered this to a Blushing Bride piece 2 3/4 x 4 1/4, wrapping the Basic White OVER the Blushing Bride. This was attached to a panel of Crumb Cake 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I stamped the front sentiment in Crumb Cake ink on a Basic White scrap and die cut it with the Tailor Made Tags dies, then took a length of the Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon and slipped it through the opening, securing the ribbon together with a glue dot. With dimensionals on the back, this was adhered to the bunny. I added Adhesive-Backed Hexagons in Blushing Bride for a bit more pink.

Easter Friends, inside.2

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set – Easter Friends, masking off a portion of the sentiment, in Crumb Cake ink. At the bottom of this Basic White panel I stamped several grasses in Granny Apple Green ink and layered them. Yep m- still Easter Friends stamp set. The white panel is 2 3/8 x 4. This was adhered to the Blushing Bride panel.

Easter Friends, back.3

Now turn the entire piece over… again with Granny Apple Green ink, I stamped the grasses, layering as I went, onto the Basic White panel (4 x 5 1/4). I then stamped the frolicking duck in Crumb Cake ink. Doesn’t it look as though the duck is dancing? I adhered this to the back of the Crumb Cake and the card was done.

Easter Friends.4

For the envelope I used Subtles 6×6 DSP for the flap, trimming it to fit and stamped the baby chick in Crumb Cake ink. I colored it with So Saffron Blends – not my best! And the card is ready to send!

Easter Friends.5

Stampin’ Up! Daffodils for the Happy Inkin’ Blog Hop

Hello Friends… it’s happy Thursday.

Welcome to the Blog Hop! There will be some gorgeous creations on the hop today – enjoy – and be sure to go through everyone’s blog. I’m using one of the springy Designer Series Papers for my card today – Daffodil Afternoon 12×12 that is FREE during Sale-a-bration. This is only available through Feb 28, 2022 with any order of $50 – get yours before it ends! Here’s my card.

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

I love how ‘fresh’ this looks. It’s cheerful too. Hope you like it as well. Remember the Daffodil Afternoon DSP is only available to the end of Sale-a-bration, 28 Feb., with any $50 order. Dont’ wait, don’t hesitate ~ get it now :O)

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! Daisy Lane

We are beginning to have longer days here on the East Coast and some warmer days as well. Our Helebores are budding, there are a couple of purple crocus showing and some little white flowers whose name I forget. These temps have inspired me to create something bright and colorful. I’ve used the Daisy Lane stamp set and coordinated Flowers for Every Season DSP and both Medium and Large Daisy Punches. Let’s take a peek…

Daisy Lane Fun Fold

Preparation:

  • Card base is Misty Moonlight 4 1/4 x 11, trim off 1 3/4 from one end, then score 1 7/8 from each end. Reserve the removed piece for the vertical front panel.
  • DSP panels Flowers for Every Season DSP (2) 1 3/4 x 4 1/8 and (1) 1 5/8 x 4 1/8 + (1) 4 1/8 x 5 3/8; (2) coordinating pieces 1 5/8 x 4 1/8; (1) 1 1/2 x 4
  • Basic White (inside panel) 4 x 5 1/4 + enough for daisies: (3) medium , (2) large
  • Gather inks: Night of Navy, Just Jade, So Saffron, and Blushing Bride
  • Embellishment: Gilded Gems

How to:

  • Adhere the appropriate two DSP pieces together for each panel using liquid glue, then adhere to the card stock pieces. Does that make sense? It seems obvious to me but let’s see if I can make it more clear: (2) 1 5/8 x 4 to (2) 1 3/4 x 4 1/8 and (1) 1 1/2 x 4 to the (1) 1 5/8 x 4 1/8. This last piece is adhered to the Misty Moonlight reserve panel 1 3/4 x 4 1/4. The others are adhered to the card base folded over panels. Yes, I think you get it!
  • Adhere this last panel to the right and just to the bottom portion of the fold-over. (If you adhere it to the top and bottom it will not open!!!)
  • Stamp the Basic White panel using the Stamparatus and Night of Navy ink, with the sentiment, realizing that the open section is what you want to see. I used the Daisy Lane stamp set for the sentiment. Now stamp the leaf in Just Jade ink in various places around the edge, keeping in mind what ism going to be seen when the card is closed (just the sentiment!). Adhere the Basic White panel to the slightly larger DSP panel and then into the inside of the card and wow- nearly done…
  • Stamp the daisies… for the Medium daisy – stamp in So Saffron ink three (3) times, stamping off each time, then punch using the Medium Daisy Punch. Curl the petals using a bone folder, then adhere together with liquid glue, off-setting the petals. Stamp the larger daisy with Blushing Bride ink, stamping off at least once, maybe twice, then punch with the Large Daisy Punch. Curl the petals as before then adhere together with liquid glue. Attach to the card as shown, with liquid glue. Add Gilded Gems to the centers of the daisies.
  • Voila – the card is done!
Daisy Lane Fun Fold, inside

Now for the envelope… I used what DSP pieces were left over for the envelope flap, adhering with liquid glue and trimming to fit. Stamp the leaf along the bottom of the envelope and some on the edge of the envelope using the same Just Jade ink. Adn yep – done, done, done!

Daisy Lane Fun Fold

Fun card… bright and cheery. If you so desired you could add a Basic White panel on the back to do some writing, cuz there isn’t much space to say much. Depends on the recipient, right?

OK… Products for todays card are from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog as well as the Jan- Jun Mini Catalog ~ and those products are available now for purchase. You will find them in the product list below. As a reminder… I’ve made it easy for you to simply ‘add all to cart’.
