Stampin’ Up! Alphabet A La Mode – New Letters!

Good Sunday morning! Goodness, the weekend is already half gone… ugh. I’ve been trying to purge my craft room. Anyone else need to clean up, get rid of old stuff? In going through one drawer I found these cute little Mini Composition notebooks and mini Gel Pens and decided to set to work making mini notebooks. I mean we are talking about 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″, purse size for sure. Here’s the one I made for me… Alphabet A La Mode Dies and the pretty Favored Flowers DSP.

Stampin' Up! Alphabet A La Mode Mini notebook

The letters are really narrow, but I like the style. Before die cutting them, I added Adhesive Sheet to the back of Thick Basic White card stock so they would adhere easily. These are pretty simple once all the details are worked out and I made several to have on hand – you know, once on a roll, just do it. 😊 Here’s another photo of a completed notebook, but without the detail on front.

Stampin' Up! Alphabet A La Mode mini notebook.2

I like having a pen with my notebook so I don’t have to go searching in my purse. Things can get ‘lost in the shuffle”, ya know?

I started with a 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 Thick Basic White card stock that I covered with Favored Flowers DSP – FREE item during Jan-Feb Sale-a-bration. I scored on the long side 3 1/4, 3 5/8 and 4 1/8 and burnished these well, having them fold both ways. I then measured down 1″ and cut between the 3 1/4 to 4 1/8 lines. Now measure down 2 3/4″ and do the same: cut between the lines of 3 1/4 to 4 1/8. This area holds the pen! See above photo.

Notice how there is a flat area behind the pen, so it doesn’t get floppy? Add Tear n’ Tape between the 3 5/8 and 4 1/8″ lines just above and below the cut areas and secure together. Now add Tear n’ Tape between 3 1/4 & 3 5/8 – again not between cut area that holds the pen. This will adhere to the spine of the mini notebooks. Let me note here, that due to the thickness of the gel pen, I need to adhere two of the mini notebooks together. I did this by trimming the front of one notebook away and the back of another and adhered just the center part together. See photo 5.

Now add adhesive to front & back of notebooks and put in place. Trim away excess paper. Decorate as desired. I used the small almost square of the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut a contrasting DSP to hold the initials. Here are several already packaged for giving.

Cute little project using the Alphabet A La Mode Dies, right?

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.

Stampin' Up! Abigail Rose DSP w/ Kraft Note Cards.1
Card 1
Stampin' Up! Abigail Rose w/ Kraft Note Cards.2
Card 2
Stampin' Up! Abigail Rose w/ Kraft Note Cards.3
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…

#2

Playful Alphabet Dies
Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP
#3

Here are all five cards – and yes, they have been sent already! What a fun gift set to forward to a new Mom. Hope she really likes them; I had such fun creating them for her.

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. But for today, what I’m showing is something I made for a friend of mine. 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…

Best Dressed 3×3 Notecards repurposed

These are just adorable in person. Photos just don’t quite show how cute they really are. I think there are 12 notecards in a set – I forget really… but I have three left and will finish them up today. I made nine but only took a photo of these as they wouldn’t all fit in the photo frame!

Mini pizza box #1

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…

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.

  • 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.

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.
