Stampin’ Up! Kraft Note Cards with Abigail Rose DSP

Good Wednesday morning! Time for some quick & easy cards. I’ve chosen the Kraft Note Cards & Envelopes to pair with the Abigail Rose DSP. Gosh that paper is stunning. Cards can be super simple and still show off handmade. I’ve done some coloring with Stampin’ Blends and added ribbon or linen thread to each. Let’s take a peek.

Card 3

Each is so different… do you have a favorite? I do but I’m not telling. :O)

Card 1: Stampin’ Blends used were Flirty Flamingo, Pale Papaya & So Saffron, Petal Pink & Daffodil Delight and Old Olive for the leaves. This was adhered directly to the Kraft Note Card. A bow was added with a glue dot using Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon & Linen Thread tied together. The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso ink, fussy cut and adhered directly under the bow.

Card 2: Again, Stampin’ Blends were used to color the flowers ~ Calypso Coral this time. Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon was wrapped over and secured in back with Seal+, then an extra length was tied in a knot and secured with a glue dot. The DSP was adhered to the Kraft Note Card; sentiment stamped in Early Espresso ink, die cut and adhered with liquid glue.

Card 3: Stampin’ Blends were used to color leaves: Blackberry Bliss, Pale Papaya & Daffodil Delight. This was added to a Blackberry Bliss piece. Linen Thread was wrapped around twice, tied in a knot. Another length was added, tied in a knot and securing it all with a glue dot. This was adhered to the Kraft Note Card front with dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped in Blackberry Bliss on a Basic White piece, adhered to a Blackberry Bliss panel and adhered to the front with dimensionals. Three Glossy Dots in Daffodil Delight were added.

On the inside of each is a Basic White panel, no stamping at all, for simplicity. This would be a perfect little gift set for someone. AND when ordering the Kraft Note Cards & Envelopes, a Kraft box comes with it!

SU! 2020-2022 In Color Box for Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Cards and Envelopes

Hi Everyone.. Yesterday I shared five cards made from the Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Card Pack, Cards & Envelopes. They were really fun to do! Because they are kind of a ‘set’, I made a box for them – and here it is… and so easy…

Flowers For Every Season memories and More Gift Card Box
#1

Here are the measurements…

  • for the bottom: 7 1/4 x 9 1/4,  scored on each side at 1 5/16. I used Thick Whisper White for a firm base. Burnish all sides, trim as shown and add Tear ‘n Tape, also where shown
  • for the top: 7 1/4 x 9 1/4, scored on each side at 1 1/4. I used Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In Color . Burnish all sides, trim as shown and add Tear ‘n Tape, also where shown.

Box, cutting & tape positioning #2

  • Remove cover on tape and put together with the small tabs going to the inside of the box.
  • For the top:
    • Whisper White 4 1/2 x 6 1/2, 1 x 6 1/2 ( x 2), 1 x 4 1/2 (x 2)
    • 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP (Cinnamon Cider) 4 x 6 (x 2), 3/4 x 6 (x 2), 3/4 x 4 (x 2)
    • Adhere DSP to Whisper White then adhere to the Cinnamon Cider top and sides
    • Decorate: Create a belly band & bouquet
      •  cut a 1 x 12 strip of coordinating DSP. I used World of Good SDSP. Wrap around entire box. Since this is about 1/2″ short of reaching around the box, adds a strip of Thick Whisper White to pull ends together on the backside and on top. See photo…

        Sides of box #4
      • Cut a panel from Whisper White using the Timeless Label Punch and adhere over the top of the two strips. This creates your belly band.
      • Belly Band for box #3

        • Stamp the daisies from the Daisy Lane stamp set, 2 medium and 2 large using Bumblebee ink and Whisper White cs. Punch out using the coordinating Daisy Medium and Large punches. Curl the petals with a bone folder and adhere together with liquid glue.
        • Using the Forever Flourishing Dies, cut out two leaves, one from Just Jade and one from Whisper White. Adhere with liquid glue to the Timeless Label punch panel.
        • Adhere the daisy over the leaves. Tie a bow with the Whisper White 1/2″ Faux Linen Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Combo Pack and adhere with a glue dot. Slip this carefully over the box… DONE! Easy, right?!

          Flowers For Every Season memories and More Gift Card Box

SU! Playful Alphabet Dies and Z Fold

Hello… last baby card I promise! Made with the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP and the Playful Alphabet Dies, this is another fun fold card. Here ’tis…

Playful Alphabet Dies
Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP
#1

The card base is Purple Posy 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2. Burnish the 5 1/2 as though the card were going flat, then fold back the 2 3/4 scored panel – this makes a z – therefore… ta da… a Z Fold Card. Cut a panel of Coastal Cabana 2 3/8 x 4. Adhere a panel of the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP cut to 2 x 3 7/8. Wrap a length of the Silver/ Misty Moonlight ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack three times around and tie in knot. Hold in place on the back with tape. Put dimesnionals on this panel back and set aside.

Adhere Foam Adhesive Sheet strip (about 1 x 2 1/2) to a piece of coordinating DSP then die cut the letters B-O-Y using the Playful Alphabet Dies. Adhere to the card front by simply removing the backing on the Foam Adhesive strip! Now adhere this completed panel to the front of your Z-Fold. Add three 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots – these are Just Jade.

For the inside… Coastal Cabana 4 x 5 1/4 then Whisper White 3 3/4 x 5, then add a coordinating strip 1/4″ from right end. Voila! The envelope got the same DSP adhered to the flap. Baby card #5 is done…

Stampin’ Up! Old and New

Hi All! It’s Thursday, May 7 and I desperately hoping for my order from the NEW 2020-2021 ANNUAL CATALOG to arrive today. I will be very anxious to share the new products with you once they arrive.

We were to have had our state convention last weekend and these were to have been given to her then – as a thank you for her leadership. Take a peek…

Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards and Tin

Hi Everyone- BEAUTIFUL day today here – hope yours is as well. I brought out my Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards and Tin to share with you. This set is just so stunning and takes my breath away a bit. It doesn’t need very much to decorate, unless you want to. I wanted these to be very un-fussy so here’s what I did…

Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards #1

Bird Ballad Laser Cut cards #2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These first two have Perennial Essence DSP layered behind the laser front and then a bit of extra trim on the inside. Because the DSP is two-sided, it is sometimes difficult to decide which you want for the focal point. One side is about as stunning as the other.

Then I decided to add a bit of ribbon and it a different look. Not sure I like it quite as much, what do you think? Any opinions? Here’s a list of the various ribbons…

Bird Ballad Laser Cut Card with ribbon #3

  • Metallic Edge ribbon 3/8″ in gold (very vanilla) and silver (white) – – carrying over to the new catalogue
  • Metallic ribbon 1/4″ Seaside Spray – –  carrying over to the new catalogue
  • Ruched ribbon 1/4″ in Daffodil Delight – – also carrying over
  • Metallic Edge ribbon 1/4″ in Petal Pink (retiring, sadly – but on sale!)

Here’s a couple individually with the ribbon for a closer look…

And here’s the gorgeous tin for holding all the beauteous cards…

Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards and Tin #6

So tomorrow – TOMORROW – I have the privilege as a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up! to place a preorder of some of the new items offered in the NEW 2020-2021 ANNUAL CATALOG. EEEK! So excited… And then – I will be able to share the new goodies with you when they arrive. 😁  😏 Want to be apart of that group who can place preorders and receive discounts?

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.

Thanks for stopping by. Please check out the Clearance Rack as it has some really awesome products at a very reduced price. And the Honey Bee Dies are back in stock so order those quickly before they disappear.

May you have a beautiful day today.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils Gift Set

Today’s project features the incredible Flowering Foils Specialty DSP that is a free Sale-a bration item when purchasing $50 worth of product, and some of our alcohol Stampin’ Up! Blends. Let’s take a look…

Coloring on this paper is so relaxing – really a cathartic for me – not that I’m stressed or anything. It simply just really get’s me going… I took one sheet of the foils and broadly cut out all the flowers. Then I sorted them putting them is piles of like flowers. That’s when I could start the coloring process, and I colored maybe four of them, then began trimming, so I could raise up some of the petals. The card has three layers on top of the card base. Here’s more detail…

  • Thick Whisper White for the card base 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″; 3 5/8″ x 5 1/8″ for the inside
  • Lovely Lipstick 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ – cut 2, one is for the inside
  • Flowering Foils SDSP 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ for the front; 1/8″ x 5 1/8″ for the inside.

 

  • Color the flower using Light and Dark Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Up! Blends. Begin with the dark, coloring only one or two petals, then going back with the light to fill in. Complete the flower then go back and use the Color Lifter Blend to lighten areas that you think need it. This is where it really begins to look almost real 🙂 Curl the edges of the. petals using a bone folder.
  • Next do the leaves in Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Up! Blends. I didn’t use much color lifter on these, but did some.
  • Finally I colored the flower buds with the same Lovely Lipstick combination of blends.
  • Now do the trimming and layering process to your satisfaction. I colored some of those flowers that were on edges of the paper so they became the top layers of the flowers. Adhere the layers with dimensionals so it truly becomes a three dimensional project. The top flower needs the center colored and I used Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Blends for that. Keep curling the edges of the flower petals to get that “real” look.
  • I finally added Wink of Stella on the top couple of layers. I like the sparkle!
  • Add the bow: Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon and adhere with a glue dot.

The inside…,

  • Super simple: adhere the additional Whisper White panel to the extra Lovely Lipstick.
  • Add the colored 1/8″ strip of the SDSP to the left of the Whisper White.
  • Adhere the Lovely Lipstick to the inside… Card is complete!

The gift bag follows the exact instruction from Sunn Stampin’ – I encourage you to watch her video on this. I simply used a different Flowering Foils SDSP to create the bag, then I decorated it.

 

  • Lovely Lipstick 2 1/2″ x 11 1/2″, gently creased around the finished bag, then score those creases, adhere tear n’ tape to the ends and wrap around and attach to the bag.
  • The flower was a double flower from the SDSP and I colored it the same as above. Then I used another layer on the bottom flower, trimming the petals apart a bit while still keeping them intact.
  • The lower flower has a Perennial Essence Floral Centers for the inner portion. I considered using another for the upper flower, but it was too much. Curl the edges of the petals using your bone folder, but be very gentle – you don’t want to pull the petals off.
  • Adhere a Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon and bingo -done.

Thanks for making a second stop with me today. Do tell me what you think of these projects. I had such fun coloring and putting together. 😏

May you have a beautiful day.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils Card and Gift Bag

My card today uses the stunning Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils papers that can be earned with a $50 order. It also uses Daisy Lane Stamp set, Around the Corner stamp set, Beautiful Bouquet stamp set, the Medium Daisy punch and the Bouquet Bunch dies.Sounds like a lot doesn’t it? But the card was super fun and easy to create. Here it is…

Isn’t this fun? I really, really like it. This Flowering Foils paper has some body to it, was easy to work with and is stunning in person. Pictures really does not do it justice. My intension was to make a masculine card but once I got started, well, you see what happened. It isn’t masculine at all!

Here are the details:

  • Smokey Slate card stock cut to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Blueberry Bushel cut to 4 3/4″ x 3 1/4″
  • Flowering Foils cut to 4 1/2″ x 3″

So how did I get this wonderful ombre effect? By using a brush roller! Using the roller, roll over the ink pad GOING IN ONE DIRECTION ONLY, NOT BACK AND FORTH. This allows the ink to cover the entire roller, not just sections of it. Put roller to paper starting at the top of the foils paper and moving downward. I did not go to the end of the piece as I wanted a gradient color. Continue this process until it’s to the depth of shade desired. Allow to dry a few minutes then buff lightly with a soft cloth to remove ink from the foil design. This is a bit of a messy process as it gets ink on your hands during the handling and holding of the paper. Just make certain the ink on your hands is dry before handling other papers!

  • Adhere the Flowering Foils piece to the Blueberry Bushel using liquid glue. Wrap braided linen thread around these two pieces and tie in a knot
  • Using the Daisy Lane stamp set stamp three daisies on Whisper White card stock and punch out with the Medium Daisy punch. Curl the petals by running a bone folder over the petals and lifting them. Adhere daisies together with glue dots. Adhere over the ribbon with a dimensional. Adhere a Gold Faceted Gem in the daisy center.
  • Stamp the “for you” using Blueberry Bushel ink and the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set onto a Whisper White scrap. Cut out using the Bouquet Bunch dies. Put a dimensional on the back, slip a length of linen thread through the hole and tie in a knot to the braided linen ribbon.
  • Adhere all this with dimenionals to the Smokey Slate cs and the card front is complete!

This card is for a friend who will be running a convention in a couple of months, and that’s why the sentiment on the inside. Here it is…

  • Blueberry Bushel 4 3/4″ x 3 1/4″
  • Whisper White 4 1/2″ x 3″
  • Stamp the sentiment with Blueberry Bushel ink
  • Add a Noble Rhinestone jewel and the card is complete.

The envelope…

  • The envelope got the same treatment on the flap, using a piece of the Flowering Foils cut 2 1/4″ x 6″, adhering with liquid glue and trimming to size.
  • On the envelope front I stamped the sentiment from Around the Corner stamp set in Blueberry Bushel. Since this card will be hand delivered, I adhered five jewels from the Noble Peacock Rhinestone pack

I love this card – did I say that already? Hope you do as well. Now – on with the matching gift bag..

 

  • Cut a piece of Flowering Foils paper 6″ x 12″. Create the ombre effect as described above.
  • Score on the long side 1 1/2″, 5 3/4″, 7 1/4″ and 11 1/2″.
  • With the ombre on the right, score on the short side 1 1/2″
  • Burnish all score lines.
  • Remove the small 1/2″ section below the 1 1/2″ score line. Adhere Tear n’ Tape to the long 1/2″ section
  • Cut up to the 1 1/2″ score line
  • Fold over the bag to the Tear n’ Tape; fold up the bottom and adhere with Tear n’ Tape
  • Pinch top; Wrap a length of Braided Linen Ribbon around the bag, tie in a bow
  • Stamp the ‘Smile’ sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Blueberry Bushel. Punch out with the Tailored Tag Punch. Add you own ‘scrolly’ around the edge. Using the Tailored Tag Punch , punch another from Blueberry Bushel cs and cut in half. Adhere the white punched piece to the two sections of Blueberry Bushel creating an even border. Adhere with dimensionals to the bag. DONE!
  • I want to give credit to Pootles for the wonderful video on YouTube that inspired this fun set. Thank you!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you liked this fun set. Remember this Flowering Foils paper is available during the rest of Sale-a-bration (Mar 31!) with a $50 order. In other words it;s a FREE ITEM!

May you have a beautiful day. Make someone happy by sending them a handmade card.

 

 

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden SuiteTreat Bag or Card Holder

Hello again… We have had some beeeeauuutiful weather here lately – jonquils and some daffodils are up and blooming; and the hellebores are stunning. The only thing is, I’ve been feeling really punky and haven’t been able to get out and do my garden thing. I’m better mind you, just not up to snuff yet.

Today’s post is more of the products from the Ornate Garden Suite. I had used one of the dies to cut one of the gorgeous papers and needed to cut it down. Well – I didn’t line it up properly and goofed but I couldn’t bring myself to throw that piece out, so I tried again and it worked the way I intended. That stitched (almost) square with the cute scallop using the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP is the result. Take a look see.

Isn’t this fun? Here are the deets:

  • Copper Dotted Treat bag, fold over the top and punch two holes.
  • Cut out a square using the Layering Squares dies, scalloped of course – Terracotta Tile cs and adhere using snail.
  • The next layer is that stunning paper  (Ornate Garden Specialty DSP) using the Ornate Layers dies and cutting it down to almost a square. It isn’t perfect, but I liked that I made it work. Adhere this layer with dimensionals.
  • The next two layers: Mint Macaron cut using the Ornate Frames dies and Whisper White cut using another framelit from that set.
  • The top layer uses the smallest of the Layering Squares dies. It has been stamped with a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.
  • The ribbon is from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack and uses the Terracotta Tile from the set.

My plan is to make a card to put in this bag, and of course it would need to be in a larger size envelope due to the size of the treat bag. Perhaps you’ll see that card tomorrow. Good plan, right? Remember… this Ornate Garden Suite will become available to customers beginning Apr 1 – May 31and will be listed in the new Annual ’20-’21 Catalogue, but probably not available as a suite of products.

When you want to learn more about this suite and how to order, please contact me. If we do not connect via my blog, please send a note to my email at tlsbrightspot@gmail.com. Thanks for stopping by today. Remember… make someone happy by sending them a handmade card!
