Stampin’ Up! DSP and Detailed Bands Die

Todays post is all about the Stampin’ Up Detailed Bands Dies and a couple of 6 x 6 DSPs – to be exact, the 2019-21 In Color 6×6 DSP and the Neutrals 6×6 DSP. I’ve created two cards in the same format, just changed things up a bit differently for each. Let’s take a look.

2019-21 In Color 6×6 DSP, Detailed Bands Die
Neutrals 6×6 DSP, Detailed Bands Die

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

See how similar? Can you tell the differences? Both hav e ther raised center, but the left or Smokey Slate card has a shadow created at the top with a piece of Smokey Slate, the Terracotta Tile card on the right does not. The other obvious difference is the ribbon on the Terracotta Tile card. Originally I thought each card would be totally monochromatic, but I didn’t like it so simply switched the center section. What’s pretty cool with this die is the center is cut at the same time, so it can be used – or not.

Here are the details:

  • Smokey Slate 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
  • The next layer is a Thick Whisper White 5 3/8 x 4 1/8
  • The following layer is the coordinating DSP. I love the handwriting piece!
  • Adhere layers 2 and 3 together with liquid glue
  • In the Smokey Slate card those two layers were adhered to the front of the card with liquid glue. In the Terracotta Tile card, I put these two layers on dimensionals and adhered them to the card front
  • Using the Detailed Bands Dies, cut your band out of Whisper White cs. Adhere directly to the card front with liquid glue in the center of the card. On the Terracotta Tile card I did attach a Metallic Edge Ribbon 3/8″ to each end using glue dots, then adhered it to the card front. Here’s a picture (not a very good one) of where I put the liquid glue on the back of the band.
Detailed Bands Die – glue areas circled
  • Cut another center out of Smokey Slate, cut in half lengthwise and set aside
  • Stamp your sentiment on the center piece using your Stamparatus. It allows for perfect centering! Since I was creating two cards at the same time, one was stamped using Smokey Slate, and the other was Terracotta Tile. The sentiment – Peaceful Moments stamp set
  • The center band stamped in Terracotta Tile got one half of the Smokey Slate piece adhered to the back to create a shadow
  • Adhere the center band to the card front with dimensionals.
  • Trim the ends of the bands

The inside…

           Terracotta Tile card inside

  • Cut a 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White panel
  • Adhere a 1/2 x 4 strip of the coordinating DSP 1/4″ from bottom
  • Using the Positive Thoughts stamp set, stamp the butterfly in Smokey Slate full strength and then continuing up the panel without reinking
  • Adhere the white panel to the card inside and the card is done!
  • The envelope is the last step…
    Neutrals 6×6 DSP, Detailed Bands Die

    Stamp the feather from Positive Thoughts stamp set on the card front using the same steps as with the butterfly – stamp full strength and continue stamping across without reinking. Adhere a coordinating Smokey Slate Neutral 6×6 DSP panel to the envelope flap.

  • Here the butterfly is stamped in Smokey Slate full strength each time for the card front. I actually stamped 3 times but one is hidden!
  • Adhere the same 2019-21 In Color 6×6 DSP to the envelope flap and these two cards are complete! So why did I use a feather on one card and a butterfly on the other? Simple… I wanted to use the feather on the Smokey Slate card to make it more useful as a masculine card and I think it works perfectly.

I love how Stampin’ Up! creates products that can be used for so many different types of projects. Are you interested in purchasing some products? Let’s connect!

Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Notecards and Tulip Builder Punch

Today’s card is made using the Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Notecards and Tulip Builder Punch AND the Pleased as Punch DSP that is a free item when purchasing at least $50 worth of product during the final days of Sale-a-bration.

Before we get to the card… how are you doing? With the health crisis everyone is experiencing, are you feeling closed in or is this a time to “get things done” or a time to meditate or a time to be outside? Before we see the card for today, I will share a picture of myself with our dear English Springer Spaniel Rusty. He is eight but thinks he is 2! We three, hubby was along too, visited a state park nearby and took a wonderful walk. Rusty loved every step and smell! Hubby took the picture so obviously isn’t in it… We live on the East Coast and the water in these photos  is leading to Barnegat Bay. Here they are…

Peaceful, right? It is definitely a great place to visit, walk around, feel connected to Mother Nature and our Almighty Maker.

Please follow the guidelines the CDC is recommending. May you and family be safe and stay well.

 

Now to the card of today…

Does this card shout Spring or what? Here are the details…

  • Using the Pleased as Punch DSP, use the Tulip Builder Punch to punch the desired tulips. I did three. What’s kind of fun is the reverse side of this paper is the wonderful green design you see used for the leaves on this card. Pretty neat, huh? Stampin’ Up! does it right!
  • Using the Timeless Tulips stamp set, stamp the stems in Granny Apple Green.
  • Adhere the Tulip punches… the bottom or tulip on the far right is adhered with liquid glue. The yellow tulip is adhered with one layer of dimensionals. The pink tulip is adhered using two layers of dimensionals.
  • Next I placed the leaves: far right is adhered with liquid glue; bottom left tulip is adhered with one layer of dimensionals; the middle leaf is adhered with a double layer of dimensionals.
  • Oh I love this bow… it is Petal Pink silver edge ribbon and just really adds a special touch to the card. It was adhered with a dimensional cut in half.
  • The sentiment was stamped with the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a 1/2′ strip of Whisper White. Trim as shown and adhere with dimesnionals.
  • For the inside I adhered a 1/2″ x 5″ strip of the Pleased As Punch DSP to the far right edge. When the card is closed it shows beyond the scalloped edge 🙂 I also stamped the sentiment THANKS from the Ornate Thanks stamp set. CARD IS COMPLETE!!! So fun.
  • On the envelope front I stamped the word ‘seriously,’ from the Ornate Thanks stamp set. It helps the individual understand even before opening the card that there is a special note inside.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like… I wish I could see the person who is receiving this card when they open it – but it’s going in the mail. You know how that is…

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.

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

 

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite Masculine Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks stamp set and Ornate Layers dies from the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue to create my masculine thank you card today. It was quick and it was easy!

  • Starting with Old Olive 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ card stock, score @ 4 1/4″
  • Cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz 4 ” x 5 1/4″. I appreciate how these two greens work together.
  • Cut a piece Ornate Garden Specialty DSP with the largest die in the Stitched Rectangle dies. Using liquid glue, adhere this to the Pear Pizzazz.
  • Cut a piece of Gold Foil from the Ornate Layers dies. Put dimensionals on the back and attach to the Pear Pizzazz and Ornate Garden SDSP.
  • Cut a strip of Basic Black 1/2″ x 5″. Adhere using snail to the center of the Gold Foil.
  • Cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz about 1 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. Run your embossing buddy across this to remove all static. Stamp the front sentiment with Versamark ink and sprinkle with Black embossing powder and heat set. Once cooled, cut this out with another of the Ornate Layers dies. Color six Rhinestone Basic jewels with Black Stampin’ Up! blends and adhere as shone. Adhere dimensionals to the back of this piece and attach, centering it, over the black strip.
  • Almost done with the front… Add dimensionals to the large Pear Pizzazz and attach, centering, to the Old Olive card base. This card now has three layers on dimensionals and shows such depth and beauty. I love it!

The inside…

  • Cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz 4′ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to the card base with liquid glue.
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White 3 3/4″ x 5″. Stamp the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Adhere a strip of the Ornate Garden SDSP 1/2″ x 5″ toward the bottom as shown. Adhere the Whisper White to the Pear Pizzazz already attached to the inside of the card and voila!

The envelope flap… adhere a piece of the Ornate Garden SDSP, cut to fit. Your card is ready to share, send, give.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you like this masculine card. I think it looks really elegant. And.. it will fit inside the gift bag from yesterday’s post. Lucky man!!!

Remember the Ornate Garden Suite will become available to customers Apr 1 – May 31. Items will be in the Annual catalogue, but probably not listed as a suite – so definitely a deal as a suite of products.  When you shop with me please use my HOST CODE XYW2SYNV to receive a free gift from me!

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