Note Cards

SU! Boho Indigo #3

Hello again – it’s Wednesday, hump day or haawmp day depending on the part of the country. There are probably even more pronunciations than that – but never mind…. It’s still Wednesday and we need to do something special with this day God has provided. How about … call someone whom you haven’t seen for a while and ask them how they are.Β  I have a list of folks the church has given me and they are so appreciative of the connection. We have bonded in a new way because of a simple phone call.

On to the card… it’s another Note Card and another vase from the Boho Indigo stamp set and coordinating dies. I had originally stamped three in Memento Black ink and they sat on my desk – this is the last of those.

I have used the In Good Taste DSP to cover the entire front of the note card. I stamped the leaf ‘bouquet’ in Crumb Cake ink onto a piece of Whisper White cs and fussy cut it. Then I took these sweet little flowers that are part of the Boho Indigo Product Medley of products and adhered them with a glue dot. I then adhered this behind the vase (which is on dimensionals) onto the Postage Stamp Punched piece of Whisper White. I colored the decor of the vase with Dark Crumb Cake Blends except for the flower centers. Those I left White. I then took a length of Metallic Mesh ribbon, tied the center to make it gather and adhered it to the back of this with a glue dot. Then the vase panel, leaves and all, got dimensionals and put in the center of the card. I stamped the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings onto a Whisper White scrap with Balmy Blue ink and fussy cut it. This also got dimensionals and was placed onto the card.

For the envelope I used the same paper from In Good Taste DSP to cover the flap – liquid glue – and fussy cut. I stamped the three flowers from Boho Indigo Stamp set on the envelop front in Crumb Cake ink and the card was complete.

Here are the three Note Cards… the one above and two below.

SU! Boho Indigo #2 on Notecard

Hi Everyone! It is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l here in NJ, USA… Cool temps, low humidity – yes – I could accept this for a while 😁… Just perfect!

My card for today is another Boho Indigo on a Notecard. I had stamped three vases in Memento Black ink some time ago and they have been sitting on my workspace waiting patiently to be used. I swear a little gremlin kept pushing them forward saying “use me, use me”. Must be my imagination πŸ™‚

Card…

Boho Indigo 2

What we have is three colors (a couple of shades of green but that’s ok): a Petal Pink from the Peony Garden DSP, solid Petal Pink cs , Whisper White cs (Postage Stamp Punch, sentiment banners and of course the Notecard, and Pear Pizzazz (+ Old Olive 1/4″ Ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack).

Stamp the vase from the Boho Indigo stamp set in Memento Black ink. Add dimesnionals to it and adhere to a Whisper White piece that has been punched using the Postage Stamp Punch. (Love this punch – such a sweet border it creates…) Die cut the leaves (twice) from Pear Pizzazz cs using the Boho Indigo coordinating dies. Trim the extended stems and adhere with liquid glue to the Whisper White Postage Stamp Punch. Adhere this vase ‘decor’ to a panel of the Petal Pink from the Peony Garden DSP with liquid glue, then to a solid piece of Petal Pink cs. Add a 1/4 length of Pear Pizzazz cs to the Notecard front, then add the Petal Pink completed panel with dimensionals.Add the folded folded 1/4″ Old Olive Ribbon with a glue dot I wanted this to be a thank you card… so I pulled out Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and stamped the sentiment on a 1/4″ Whisper White strip and cut it apart adding a banner end to the ‘thanks’ word. I adhered these with liquid glue.

For the envelope I adhered the same Peony Garden DSP to the envelope flap then stamped the ‘fleur’ across the bottom with Pear Pizzazz ink.

Thanks for stopping by.

May you have a beautiful day.

  • Peony Garden DSP 2 x 4
  • Whisper White for the Postage Stamp Punch – approximately 1 3/4 x 2 1/2 + 1/4″ strip for sentiment approximately 2″ in length

SU! Boho Indigo & Notecards

Hi everyone… how are you this holiday weekend? Cannot believe it is Labor Day already… THANK YOU VETERANS & FAMILIES FOR YOUR DEDICATION TO THIS AMAZING COUNTRY. YOU ARE VALUABLE AND INCREDIBLY BRAVE. From my heart to yours – thank you for your service.

My card today uses the Boho Indigo stamp set and coordinating dies and is added to a Notecard. Love this size…

Boho Indigo on a Notecard

I started by stamping the largest vase stamp from the Boho Indigo stamp set on a Whisper White cs with Memento Black ink and die cutting it with theΒ  coordinating dies. I then stamped the leaf grouping using sponge daubers and Garden Green ink and Pear Pizzazz ink. In nature not all leaves are exactly uniform in color, so why should these be – right? Since there is not a die for this stamp, I fussy cut it. I used the Postage Stamp Punch and Whisper White to create a background for the vase, adhering the vase with dimensionals. I used a Petal Pink from the Peony Garden DSP and adhered the Vase/ Postage stamp Punched piece with liquid glue. I put dimensionals on the back of the leaf bunch and added it, making it look as though the leaves were in the vase. This Peony Garden panel was adhered to Basic Black cs with liquid glue. I added a length of folded in half piece of Old Olive 1/4″ Ribbon to the back with Stampin Seal and this entire panel was adhered to the notecard with dimensionals. I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done.

On the inside I stamped this cute leaf stamp along three sides with Garden Green ink then stamped the birthday greeting from Boho Indigo stamp set in Pear Pizzazz.

For the envelope I added the same Petal pink from the Peony Garden DSP to the envelope flap and the sweet leaf stamp to the front and the card was complete. Fun! and different…

Stampin’ Up and Notes of Kindness Card Kit

Hi Folks… Oh today is sunny and beautiful! We have had so much rain and cool temps and with having to be socially isolated, it’s a breath of fresh air. Thank you God! While the world is struggling with the Coronavirus, our yard is coming alive.. I’m going to share just a few pictures so you get the idea.

Variegated Solomons Seal
Very young Brunnera – look at that sweet delicate flower :o)
Bleeding Heart

 

Was that enough? You get why I’m all excited about the yard “coming to life.” We have a very shaded back yard and all of these are enjoying the cool weather, the rain to wet their feet and today’s sunshine.

😁 My little bit of heaven…

 

 

 

 

 

Yesterday I filled my card kits and I want to share the packaging. Yes, I shared it earlier in the week, but the pkg was empty – and now it’s full :o) (They are mailed already – out at 9 AM this morning!)

The box on the right was a late order and I wanted to do something slightly different. I like how it turned out.

 

 

Then… I worked on this fun card kit – Notes of Kindness. It comes complete with an acrylic block, a Stampin’ Spot, dimensionals, glue dots and supplies to make 20 – get that 20 cards to put together – oh and did I say directions too?. Love, love, love the soft pink and green together. Here’s what it looks like before opening the pkg and putting the cards together.

Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Notecards and Thoughtful Blooms

Today’s post is another of the Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Notecards, but this time using Thoughtful Blooms stamp set and the Small Blooms Punch, which are free items during Sale-a-bration when you purchase $xxx. πŸ™‚

Isn’t this cute? It’s feminine and easy peasy. Here are the details..

  • Using Old Olive ink, stamp the leaves all over the card.
  • Again using Old Olive ink, stamp the leaves on a scrap of Whisper White and cut out using one of the circle dies.
  • Using Old Olive ink, stamp the flower on Old Olive cs. Punch out using the Small Blooms Punch. A single Rhinestone as added to the center of each.
  • The sentiment piece was created by first stamping the sentiment from the SAB Honey Bee stamp set.Β I then took a small circle punch and as uniformly as possible created the the edge. This piece was adhered to the card front with dimensionals. The circle was added with liquid glue. Two of the flowers were adhered with glue dots. The last flower was adhered with a dimensional. Card is complete!
  • For the envelope, I stamped the leaf stamp first followed by the flower stamp – both in Old Olive ink.

Thanks for stopping by today. I promise we’ll do something besides Scalloped Notecards for tomorrow. But this was a bit of a fun exercise, to create each one so differently but using the same card base. Hope you liked it too.

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

Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Notecards and the Ornate Garden Suite

Today’s card is made using the ultra cute Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Notecards and decorated using Ornate Garden Specialty DSP and. the Ornate Borders dies. These notecards come in a package of 20 with scalloped envelopes and in colors: Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Light Pink and Terracotta Tile. This card is made using the Old Olive. Here it is…

The card front:

  • Cut a piece of the Ornate Garden SDSP 2 3/4″ x 5″. Adhere using liquid glue.
  • Using the Ornate Borders Dies, cut a piece 1/2″ x 5″ from Gold Foil. Adhere using liquid glue.

The inside:

  • Cut a strip of the Ornate Garden SDSP 1/2″ x 5″ and adhere to the bottom. This allows this beautiful paper paper to show because of the scalloped edge of the notecard.
  • Using the Ornate Layers dies, cut a section from Old Olive cs. Adhere to the inside using liquid glue
  • Using a different die from the Ornate Layers Dies, cut a section from Gold Foil. Rub with your embossing buddy to remove any static. Using Versamark ink, stamp the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set, sprinkle with black embossing powder and heat set. Adhere this to the Old Olive piece.
  • Since this has used most of the card, prepare a Whisper White piece to slip inside. Here’s what I did with mine – using the Ornate Style stamp set and Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I cut this piece 3″ x 4″.

Voila – card is complete, ready to send an appreciative thank you!

I have had such a fun time using this Ornate Garden Suite. If you are not a demonstrator, this suite will become available to order from me Apr 1.Β  So think about it and let’s connect..
