Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia

Today’s card is made with the amazing Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. This stamp set has additional options … first there are the two stamp sets, then matching dies and finally an embossing folder. Today we use just the one stamp set and the embossing folder. The card is elegant and depending on the sentiment used, could be for many purposes. This is a thank you card, for I’m grateful for a lot, and during this time especially it seems appropriate to give thanks. Let take a look…

And here are the details on how to make it:

  • Smokey Slate card stock 4 1/4″ x 11″
  • Night of Navy 4″ x 5 1/4″ (cut 2, one for the inside)
  • Silver Foil 4 1/8″ x5 1/8″, 2 7/8″ x 4 1/8″
  • Whisper White 3 7/9″ x 5 1/8″ (for the inside)

 

  • With your embossing buddy, rub one panel of the Night of Navy,. With Versamark ink, stamp the large flower from Good Morning Magnolia, sprinkle with silver embossing powder and heat set. Make certain all is glistening silver before setting aside to cool.

Let’s create the inside at this point and come back to the front later.

  • Adhere the second panel of Night of Navy to the inside, using liquid glue.
  • With your Whisper White cs, stamp the sentiment and leaves with Night of Navy ink. Adhere this panel to the inside Night of Navy.

Now back to the front..

  • With the Stitched Rectangles, cut the center of that magnificent magnolia.
  • Adhere the larger section of the magnolia to the larger silver foil using snail.
  • Adhere the smaller piece to the smaller Silver Foil with snail. Add dimensionals to this piece and adhere to the larger magnolia, matching all of the floral design.
  • TIP…Adhering  to foil with liquid glue is slippery and the paper often moves. I strongly encourage using snail or dimensionals when adhering to foil papers.

The envelope…

  • Cut a piece of Night of Navy 2 1/4″ x 6″, spritz with water to soften the paper fibers and run through the Magnolia Lane 3D embossing folder.
  • Adhere to the envelope flap with liquid glue and trim.
  • Stamp the leaf in the lower left corner of the envelope front with Night of Navy ink. (I might have taken my picture a bit early and didn’t capture this, but I did do it!)

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia

Today’s card uses the Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, heat embossing and sponge daubers. I’ve created this as a birthday card, but it could so easily be sympathy, wedding, anniversary, or just a note. It is soft and it is feminine. Let’s look….

Good Morning Magnolia #1

Here are the details:

  • Thick Whisper White card stock 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″, another piece 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ for the card front.
  • Rub the smaller cs with your embossing buddy, making certain to cover the entire area.
  • Using Versamark ink, stamp the Good Morning Magnolia stamp on the right hand corner, stamping as much of the magnolia as you desire. Ink a portion of the stamp again and stamp in the upper left corner.
  • Sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat emboss. Set aside to cool.
  • On a scrap, of vellum, rub with your embossing buddy and with Versamark ink stamp the flower bud. Sprinkle with white embossing powder then heat emboss until all the powder has melted. Set aside to cool. Once cool, use the Magnolia Memory Dies to cut out the flower bud.
  • On another scrap of vellum approximately 1/2″ x 3″, rub with the embossing buddy, ink your sentiment and stamp. Sprinkle with the white embossing powder and heat emboss until all powder has melted. Set aside to cool.
  • Using Blushing Bride and sponge daubers, lightly rub the color exactly where you want it. I made it darker in the center and lighter toward the outside. For the leaves, do exactly the same with Old Olive ink. Do the same on the vellum flower bud but color on the backside of the vellum.
  • Attach the flower bud with a mini dimensional at the base of the bud.
  • Attach the vellum sentiment in the same spot using a glue dot. I used a second glue dot, placing it just under the word happy, so it wouldn’t show through.
  • Now you are ready to adhere this directly to your card base, using liquid glue or snail.

For the inside… I’ve kept this very simple.

Timeless Tulips sentiment – inside
  • Choose your sentiment… this is from the Timeless Tulip stamp set (available during Sale-a-bration), and using Stazon Jet Black ink..

Thanks for stopping by today. 

May you have a beautiful day.

Stampin’ Ip! Ornate Garden Specialty DSP, Ornate Borders Dies

Todays Card is a fun use of the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Specialty DSP and the Ornate Borders Dies. It’s a panel card, at least that’s what I’m calling it, meaning it doesn’t open 🙂 It simply has a panel that fits inside the folded DSP. Let’s take a look….

This Ornate Garden Specialty DSP is so sweet and I wanted to emphasize this particular pattern for as much of the card as possible. This is what I did…

  • Mint Macaron card base cut to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″; also cut 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ for the inside panel
  • Ornate Garden SDSP cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″; another with same dimension but score this at 4″
  • Adhere the 4 “x 5 1/4” SDSP to the card base using liquid glue
  • Cut a panel 1/2″ x 4″ from Gold foil. Using a die from the Ornate Borders Dies, run it through your embossing/ diecut machine. Adhere this diecut to the fold-over piece of SDSP. Cut about a 20″ length of Mint Macaron 1/4″ ribbon, run over it with your snail adhesive and adhere evenly around the back and front, covering slightly where the Gold Foil diecut was attached.Tie a bow. TIP: use your grid paper to make certain the ribbon is attached evenly. 
  • Using tear ‘n tape, adhere to the sides and bottom of this panel and attach to the card base.
  • Cut three flowers from Gold Foil scrap using the Ornate Border Dies. Adhere Glitter Enamel Dots to the center of each flower. Put on dimensionals and attach accordingly.

Now for the inside…

  • Whisper White cut to 2 is 7/8″ x 4 1/4″. Stamp your sentiment (I used the Peaceful Moments stamp set) with Stazon Jet Black ink. I like how clear this ink stamps! I also added a sweet flower from the Special Someone stamp set. This was colored using Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight markers. TIP: When using Stazon Jet Black ink, DO NOT USE BLENDS TO COLOR! It simply smears the ink instead of adding color.
  • Using the Ornate Borders Dies once more, cut the same border die from Blushing Bride cs (approx. 1/2″ x 4″). Adhere to the Whisper White panel using liquid glue.
  • Adhere this Whisper White panel to the 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ Mint Macaron piece. Cute, cute!

The envelope…

  • Cut a piece of matching SDSP from the Ornate Garden SDSP pack 2 1/4″ x 6″. Adhere with liquid glue and trim.
  • Stamp the adorable flower used on the card panel insert on the envelope front (I did it five times!) Color using Flirty Flamingo marker for the petals and Daffodil Delight marker for the flower center.

Isn’t this card sweet?!

Thanks so much for stopping by.. May you have a beautiful day.

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. 🙂

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. 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! Ornate Thanks, Ornate Borders Dies, So Very Vellum Specialty DSP

Today’s card makes use of the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks and Ornate Borders Dies, and So Very Vellum Specialty DSP and the Eyelet Lace embossing folder. It was inspired by TGIF Challenges #tgifc255. Here it is in all it’s glory – feminine and fresh, bringing a note of thanks to the receiver…

Here are the details for the card front:

  • Soft Seafoam 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • So Very Vellum 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″
  • Whisper White 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 1/2″ x 3″ strip for the sentiment

 

  • Use the border die from the Ornate Borders dies to create this wonderful delicate edge. Adhere this to the left front of the So Very Vellum SDSP. This takes a very thin line of liquid glue. Adhere this, again with liquid glue, just along where the die edge is attached to the vellum. This is important – if glue is anywhere else on the vellum it will show. You don’t want that!
  • Stamp the sentiment from Ornate Thanks with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Angle the one end. Put on dimesionals – I used three – and add to card front. Mine is placed 3/4″ up from the bottom. Add bling with the Noble Peacock Rhinestones. Front is complete!

Inside the card:

  • Whisper White 4″ x 5 1/4″ Stamp the sentiments from the Ornate Thanks stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and Soft Seafoam ink. Use a leftover strip from the embossed piece from the envelope flap and adhere to the bottom. This strip is  1/4″ x 5 1/4″

The envelope:

  • Nary a “neked” envelope to be found – right? Right! Cut a piece of Soft Seafoam 2 1/4″ x 6″, spritz lightly with water and run through the Eyelet Lace embossing folder. Adhere to the envelope flap using liquid glue. Trim. The leftover scrap was cut down and used on the inside of the card 🙂
  • Stamp the sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

I love this card! It is just so sweet. I hope you like it too. Remember that this stamp and die set can be yours beginning Apr 1- May 1. It is part of the Early Release Ornate Garden Suite of products.  While the items will be be available in the Annual 2020-2021 catalogue, they most likely will not be as a suite of products – and therefore will be more expensive.

I would love to have you shop with me. When you purchase product $50- $149 from me, you receive a free item of choice up to $10. A deal right? Use my current HOST CODE XYW2SYNV.

Stampin’ UP! Clubhouse fun fold card

Hello – today’s card is definitely masculine and I hope you like it. It can be used for a birthday, congratulations or simply a friendly card. I created it for someone who is a golfer and just needs a ‘pick me up’. Here it is…

What do you think? One of the aspects about SU! that I like so much is that colors coordinate pretty much across the board. When they package their Designer Series Paper, it lists on the back of the package coordinating colors for that particular design. And what I’ve learned is often other shades of a particular color,  say green, may work in nicely as well. And that’s what I did on this card – worked in a different shade of green.

Here are the details…

  • Cut a piece of thick Whisper White cs 6 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, scoring on the long side at 2″.
  • Cut a piece of Country Club DSP 1 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere using liquid glue to the left portion of the card front. Refer to the photo for help.
  • Using Night of Navy ink, stamp both the sentiment as well as the golfer from the Clubhouse stamp set on Whisper White card stock. Using the Golf Club dies cut out the golfer and JUST the Greatest Guy part of the sentiment.
  • Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies and Pear Pizzaz cs, cut out a rectangle large enough for the golfer.
  • Using the next larger die from Stitched So Sweetly dies, cut a piece of Night of Navy cs.
  • Using liquid glue, adhere the Pear Pizzaz to the Night of Navy cs. Using dimensionals, adhere the golfer to these two pieces. See photo for placement. Set aside.
  • Cut another piece of DSP 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to the inside of the card.
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White  2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ for the inside. Stamp in Night of Navy ink accordingly. I used the golf ball and this wonderful sentiment. When you look at the photo of the inside of the card, you will see that I separated this into two sections. There’s a simple explanation for that… I goofed when stamping and stamped the sentiment upside down! I was so annoyed with myself. So how to fix it? I simply cut it into two sections 🙂

Back to the front and adhering the panel to the card front.

With the card closed adhere the panel approximately 5/8″ from the left, top and bottom. This will mean it is pretty well centered on the card. I put the glue on the card front instead of the panel cuz I wanted to be sure not to have glue where it wasn’t needed.

Now complete the inside. Open the card and adhere the Whisper White panel to the inside so it is approx. 7/8″ from the fold, bottom and and right edges. What you want to be certain of is that this panel does not show when the card front is closed.

Remember to decorate the envelope – no “naked” envelopes please! And be certain to sign your card. People love to see your name or initials on there.

I hope you like today’s card. Masculine cards are sometimes tricky to create but I like the way this turned out.

Sale-a bration is quickly coming to an end – Mar 31. If you are still wanting to pick up any of these fabulous products do so right away. Reach out to me if you have questions – love to hear from you.

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

 

 

 

 

Poppies Moments Dies

Hi All… Oh gosh – I so love today’s card…made with the SU! Poppy Moments Dies and a couple of other stamp sets and another die. 😏 As yesterday’s card, this is primarily monochromatic with Highland Heather the paper of choice. What did I do? Here are the details…

  • Card stock layer is Highland Heather (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″), with DSP from Best Dressed  6 x 6 DSP. (4″ x 5 1/4″). Adhere the DSP with liquid glue to the Highland Heather card base.
  • Layer… 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ Highland Heather with the Best Dressed 6 x 6  DSP (3 1/4″ x 4/ 1/4″) adhered with liquid glue. Put on dimensionals and adhere to card base, centering the layer.
  • Die cuts: Using the Poppy Moments dies, Whisper White for the outline poppy, and the two centers; vellum for the larger poppy and the leaves,  green vellum from Perennial Essence for the accent on the leaves. Color the large poppy vellum with Highland Heather dark Stampin’ blends. Adhere the poppy outline to the vellum with glue dots in the3 center only. Adhere each of the centers with mini dimensionals. Adhere the green outline vellum to the plain vellum with glue dots and slip under the poppy to your satisfaction.
  • Stamp the front sentiment  from Timeless Tropical stamp set (available as part of the SAB. catalogue) in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Cut out with Ornate Frames dies. Adhere with dimensionals.
  • The bow – so cute, so fun… I pulled apart three (3) small strands from the flax ribbon and tied in a bow. Adhere with a glue dot.
  • The outside is done!!!

Inside…

  • Whisper White card stock cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • Adhere 3/8″ strip of Highland Heather to your liking, then add the Best Dressed 6 x 6 DSP.
  • Stamp the sentiment from Rare Blessings stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  • Adhere with liquid glue to the inside of the card.

Envelope…

  • Stamp the flower from Rare Blessings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and color using Stampin’ blends markers Highland Heather light and dark and light Old Olive. I LOVE this little flower!
  • Make certain when coloring the flower that you slip a barrier inside the envelope as the Stampin’ blends bleed through. I use old card stock scrap and that works just fine.
  • Adhere a piece of the remainder of the Best Dressed 6 x 6 DSP piece to the envelope flap.

YAY! Card is complete… be sure you sign it on the back so the receiver knows you made it 😉

This is such a beautiful card. Make certain you send it to someone who could use a brightening of their day.

Timeless Tulips

Hello! The birds are singing wildly this morning. Isn’t it amazing how bulbs popping out of the ground can get us all enthused? It happens to me for sure. So today’s card is a hint of Spring – Pool Party is the lead color with just a hint of Petal Pink and Soft Seafoam. Here it is…

  • Card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ – Pool Party
  • Layer 4″ x 4 1/4″ Pool Party dry embossed with the beautiful Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder. Adhere with liquid glue directly to the card base
  • Layer #2: 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ Pool Party. Cut 3″ x 4″  Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP and adhere with liquid glue to the smaller Pool Party. Put dimesnionals on the back and adhere to the card base by centering it on the card.
  • Layer #3: Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies and second from largest scalloped edge, cut a piece of Whisper White. Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, the stamp the smaller tulip in Petal Pink, followed by the stem and leaves in Soft Seafoam.
  • Adhere pearls from Share What You Love OR color pearls using Stampin Blends markers.

Love the simplicity of this primarily monochromatic look. The sentiment chose lends itself to being used as a birthday, sympathy, congratulations or just a note card.

Painted Poppies

I just cannot get enough of the Painted Poppies stamp set! Today’s post was inspired by another demonstrator – Sharon Burkert – must give credit where credit is due!

Using Tuxedo Memento Black, I stamped the Painted Poppies on Whisper White CS then colored them with Rich Razzleberry blends. I wanted this card simple so used no other colors. While the Rich Razzleberry blends was in my hand I colored the Metallic edge ribbon until I liked the depth of color. The blends dry so quickly and easily and doesn’t rub off on your fingers either. It allows us / you to coordinate with whatever is being created. Fun right?

OK – on with the directions… I cut out the Painted Poppies to the size I wanted with the Layering Squares dies then used the scalloped die from the same set to create this delicate edge, cutting it in Rich Razzleberry. I adhered the Painted Poppy to the Rich Razzleberry scalloped edge, adhered dimensionals to the back and set aside.

Using the Scripty 3D embossing folder, run a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ piece of Whisper White through the embosser. Remember to lightly spritz the paper with water to get a wonderful indentation. Adhere another piece of Whisper White cs with liquid glue behind this to give this layer more sturdiness. Wrap the blends colored ribbon around these two layers and tie a knot. Place the Painted Poppy squares where you want them and voila! Put dimensionals on this layer OR adhere directly to the Whisper White card base (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″).

This card could fit so many occasions depending on the sentiment used on the inside. I see this as a sympathy or birthday or thinking of you card – so many possibilities.

I hope you enjoyed todays card. Please share a photo of your creation if you are inspired by this post. When ordering from me, pleaser use my HOST CODE: 2TMMA9HX if your order is over $50.
