Creative Inspiration

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Pop-Up

Hello again – Monday madness? Try doing something creative and fun… that will get the juices flowing and you feeling less frantic. At least, that’s my theory – and I’m stickin’ to it. 😏 Todays card was inspired by the Paper Players Challenge #523 – use Blackberry Bliss, Bumblebee & Misty Moonlight with a neutral thrown in somewhere. So here’s what I did…

Dragonfly Pop-up – #1

The challenge brought to mind of the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP with all the dragonflies and colors – well, it just FIT for me… AND I have wanted to do this fun pop-up, so… I pulled the Dragonfly Garden bundle and began creating.

  • Punch a few dragonflies using the Dragonfly Punch from one of the papers in the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP
  • Cover the punched dragonflies with Wink of Stella. I did the body as well as the wings, and like the look for this card
  • Adhere a panel of the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP to a slightly larger piece of Bumblebee card stock with liquid glue. Cover the dragonflies with Wink of Stella for extra glam.
  • Put dimensionals on the back and attach to a Misty Moonlight card base
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Misty moonlight ink on Smoky Slate strip. Trim the right end at an angle.
  • Adhere a larger strip of Bumblebee card stock (but slightly shorter than the Smokey Slate strip) even with the Bumblebee panel. Now adhere the Smoky Slate panel making it even with the DSP panel – all done with liquid glue
  • Add dimensionals to one of the dragonflies and adhere at end of the sentiment strip and the front of the card is complete.
Dragonfly Pop-Up – #2

Here’s where the fun fold is, and oh so easy to do.

  • Cut a panel of Basic White 4 3/4 x 7 3/4; fold in half . Along the center, mark down from the top 2 1/2″
  • On the long side and the top, make a mark 2″ from each end. Scor from the 2 1/2″ mark to the 2″ mark, making a ‘V’. Fold the center IN and burnish. Burnish the ‘V’ folds as well. Burnish the lower portion of the center of the panel.
  • Adhere to card base, pushing the folds of the Basic White against the fold of the Misty Moonlight. Adhere only one side at a time!!!
  • Decorate with dragonflies.

When finished the inside will look like this…

Dragonfly Pop-Up, inside – #3

For the envelope… cover the flap with coordinating card stock from the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP. Stamp the dragonfly grouping in Misty Moonlight ink on the front of the envelope. And voila – finis! Wasn’t that fun? And a beautiful card to boot. After creating, don’t you feel better???

Stampin’ Up! Heart Time!

Hello Everyone… it’s a sunny Sunday afternoon. I’m still playing with some of the new products in the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog. Todays project uses the Forever & Always stamp set paired with the Floral Heart Dies. I used the very lacy die to cut a beautiful heart from the Fine art Gallery DSP.

Floral Heart Dies – #1

Look at the marvelous detail opf that die cut! It’s gorgeous… and I used, as I mentioned, a piece of the Fine Art Gallery DSP that is a soft Petal Pink & white background. I die cut another out of True Love DSP – and used that heart for the center of this one. And the background is another panel of True Love DSP. The black/ white heart is on dimensionals. Let’s see the entire card…

Forever & Always + Floral Heart Dies – #2

That adorable little white heart is from the Resin Heart Embellishments. The sentiment is stampede on a Petal Pink strip with Memento Black ink using the Forever & Always stamp set. And that die on the right… oh my… love it! It’s from the Floral Heart Dies also and I used a strip of Petal Pink.

Floral Heart Dies – #3

For the inside I used the Blending Brushes and Petal Pink ink to get some color on the Basic White card stock. The sentiment comes from the Heart to Heart stamp set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. And those super cute little hearts are those that popped out of the edge heart die for the front of the card – adhered with just a dot of glue.

The envelope got more of the True Love DSP and for the front I stamped the three little hearts (one stamp!) using Petal Pink ink and the Forever & Always stamp set.

Products to make this card will be shown below and all are available to purchase now 😏 And I’ve made it easy for you to simply ‘add all to cart’. If I can help you in any way to order these items, please give me a holler. As a thank you to my customers, when the order is between $50-$150 I offer a SU! item of your choice valued at $10.

Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Hill

Oh goodness ~ yesterday was an absolutely BONUS DAY… lots of goodies arrived from, where else? Stampin’ Up! Here’s my first card using this new and fabulous Hydrangea Hill bundle…

Hydrangea Hill – #1

Hopefully you can see how three-dimensional the flower itself is… and… here’s what I did:

  • On a panel of Basic White, stamp the solid ‘splotch’ in Highland Heather, using the Hydrangea Hill stamp set.
  • Stamp the flowers on top of this in Gorgeous Grape and die cut with the Hydrangea Dies
  • Die cut petals in both Purple Posy & Vellum – each die will cut nine (9) petals – so you’ll have 18 in all
  • Adhere the Vellum petals with liquid glue first – it only takes a small dot of glue, then adhere the Purple Posy petals in the same way. This allows some of the stamped petals to show through and gives it dimension.
  • Apply Pearl Basic Jewels to the Purple Posy petals – set aside
Hydrangea Hill – #2
  • On another panel of Basic White card stock stamp the sentiment from the Hydrangea Hill stamp set in Gorgeous Grape.
  • Stamp the stem/ leaves in Memento Black, then stamp with the ‘filler’ stamp in Pear Pizzazz. I really like how this stamp is not full-on solid for it adds texture to the leaves.
  • Now stamp the splotch of the flower head again in Highland Heather ink, right on top of that stem.
  • I stamped the petals in Gorgeous Grape, but there’s really no need as you will be covering this.
  • Place the prepared flower head on dimensionals and add over the splotch but off centering a bit so the splotch shows like a shadow.
  • Now add a Sheer Ribbon bow in Gorgeous Grape with a glue dot.
  • It still needed something so I pulled out the new Pastel Pearls and added just one. If you do not have these, you could color one of the Pearl Basic Jewels with a Stampin Blends.
  • Adhere this completed Basic White panel to Highland Heather with liquid glue, then to another panel of Gorgeous Grape. Put dimensionals on the back and adhere to a purple Posy card base and voila – the front is complete!
Hydrangea Hill – #3

For the inside, I took another panel of Basic White card stock and stamped an elongated ‘splotch’ in Highland Heather, then over-stamped with the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape. Yep, still from the Hydrangea Hill stamp set! I found a Purple Posy petal on the floor (how it got there – who knows!) so adhered it with a dot of liquid glue and added a Pearl Basic jewel. I adhered this panel to another of Highland Heather with liquid glue and then into the Purple Posy card base – and the card was done…

Hydrangea Hill – #4

For the envelope, I took some of the awesome Hydrangea Hill DSP and adhered it to the envelope flap. Then I took another of the ‘splotches’ and stamped it on the corner of the envelope – in Highland Heather ink. With Gorgeous Grape ink, I stamped the pretty posies on top of the splotch – FINIS!

This is such a pretty stamp set and so fun to use. There are some fun dies for the leaves I can’t wait to use… another day. 😁 Card cuts for this project will be listed at the bottom of this post.

Now – let’s talk about the Whisper White – Basic White card stock… Whisper White has been fazed out and is no longer available (the company producing it closed 😞). However, another company is now making the new product and of course it couldn’t be called the same – Basic White it is… and now available in all sizes, envelopes, note cards, you name it.

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Fun Fold

Todays card was created for someone very special in mind. I felt they might need something cheerful – and what’s more upbeat than colorful flowers. Made with the new Art Gallery bundle, Fine Art Floral DSP and coordinating Golden Garden Designer Series Acetate. – this card says ‘have hope.’ I’m entering this in the Paper Players challenge – ‘something new’ – Paper Players 522

And here’s the card…

Art Gallery Fun Fold – #1

And here’s how it opens…

And here’s how to create this beauty…

  • The card base is Mossy Meadow 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
  • The next layer is Flirty Flamingo 4 x 7 7/8 scored at 5 1/4
  • The right tab is also Flirty Flamingo 1 x 4 1/4 scored at 1 1/4
    • Adhere the right tab to the back of the larger Flirty Flamingo, centering it on the 4″ end, with the burnished end up against the end of the paper. I actually held it in place folded so it adhered right where I wanted it and would fold over properly
  • The full Flirty Flamingo panel can now be adhered to the card base, with the scored end on the left. Refer to the photos above for reference.

Now it’s time to decorate… I cut another panel of Flirty Flamingo with the Stitched Rectangles Dies (approx. 3 x 4 3/8). To this I adhered two panels of DSP: the Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate to a panel of Fine Art Floral DSP with Stampin Seal. I used Stampin Seal ‘cuz it doesn’t show through the acetate so much. Both were cut 2 3/4 x 4. These panels were attached to the stitched panel with liquid glue.

With the Flirty Flamingo fold closed and the tab open to the right, adhere the decorated panel to the fold, centering it. Be certain to use liquid glue only on the left portion of the panel being attached!

Now let’s decorate the tab… I stamped the background of the flower from the Art Gallery stamp set in Petal Pink ink on a Basic White scrap. I then stamped the filler for the flower in Poppy Parade. I did this twice to create an inside and outside flower for the tab. I then colored the inner part of the flower with Light Mango Melody Stampin Blends and created the little dots with the Basic Black Marker. These two touches really make the flower look ‘real’. I then ran a scrap of Petal Pink card stock through the Subtle Embossing Folder and die cut that with the stitched Shapes Dies – obviously a circle… that was only slightly larger than the flower. I adhered each circle to the tab, both inside & out so they fit together perfectly. The inside flower was adhered to the inside circle with liquid glue. The flower for the front of the tab was adhered with dimensionals. I then took Wink of Stella and highlighted only the Poppy Parade areas on the flower. If you try to do more than that, it will smear – so do this carefully and with intention.

For the inside of the card I stamped a panel of Basic White card stock 2 3/4 x 4 first with the sentiment in Memento Black ink, masking off the the word ‘I’m’. I then stamped with Petal Pink ink and the smaller flower from the Art Gallery stamp set. Next was stamping the Poppy Parade filler part of the flower. Again I added little back dots to make the flower more three-dimensional and real-looking. This panel was adhered to the inside of the card with liquid glue, making certain it couldn’t be seen when the card was closed (that’s another reason it’s a smaller panel!) And the card was done…

For the envelope I adhered a coordinating panel of the Fine Art Gallery DSP to the flap, then stamped the front of the card with a single small flower as done on the inside of the card: first in Petal Pink ink then Poppy Parade, then little black dots.

I really like how the stamped flowers turned out. The addition of the yellow and black really makes this flower come to life. What I would do differently… I would add an additional layer of DSP on the front left panel and on the inside of the card, and maybe on the tab as well. Somehow I think it needs that. Guess I have to do another card! 👍

Stampin’ Up! True Love Shines

Woohoo! Sale-a-bration & the NEW Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog went live yesterday… did you order? And what was your favorite item? Just curious… So, yes, I placed an order too – and will be super excited when it arrives. I couldn’t choose just one fav… the more I work with a product, the more it becomes a favorite. I used to hoard Designer Series Paper – in other words, I thought it was too pretty to cut into. Once I got over that a couple of years ago (thank goodness!) I really started having fun with the various papers. I really like coloring and the True Love DSP is perfect for that. I have two cards for you today using that paper and coloring with Blends.

Bright colors with this black & white DSP really works! Card 1 is coordinated with Magenta Madness, which takes on a life of its own. The flower is fussy cut after coloring with the Magenta Madness Blends for the flower and Old Olive for the leaves. And of course the coordinating Magenta Madness ribbon and the DSP is layered on Magenta Madness card stock. And there’s a fun Square Vellum doily that I cut and used just a portion, slipped under the ribbon. Although it doesn’t show in this photo, the flower was covered in Wink of Stella and then I added the Metallic Pearls in Silver.

The color coordination on Card #2 is Bumblebee and I love this contrast too. Again the flower was fussy cut after coloring with Mango Melody Blends on the flower and Granny Apple Green on the leaves. For the center of the flower I used the Bronze Blend. This card got as strip of the Bumblebee covered in the Whisper White Polka Dot Ribbon and 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots which don’t show in the photo above.

Here you can see the whole card with the Bumblebee strip, ribbon, the enamel dots & the sentiment. The sentiment comes from Many Messages stamp set and cut with the Messages Dies.

This shows card #1 in all its splendor – with another flower colored and fussy cut and adhered with liquid glue to the envelope front.

And here are the insides of both cards…

You can see what I did on each card and I love the finished look. Cut a strip of the True Love DSP and color just a few of the flowers. More photos….

Card #2 also uses the Stitched Circles Dies (Whisper White) and the Layering Circles Dies (scalloped in Basic Black. The circles are adhered together, then placed on dimensionals over the Bumblebee strip. The sentiment banner is also on dimensionals.

Card #1: the Magenta Madness panel is on dimensionals as you can see, with the ribbon wrapped around the entire panel. The flower is also on dimensionals. Card cuts will be listed at the bottom of this post. All product used to make these two cards are listed for your convenience in ordering. If I can help you in any way to order these products, please give me a holler. As a thank you to my customers, when the order is between $50-$150 I offer a SU! item of your choice valued at $10. Remember to use MY CURRENT HOST CODE RSVNH4XW- good Jan 5-20.

Stampin’ Up! True Love in Black & White

WOOHOO! Today is THE DAY… Jan to Jun 2021 Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration are LIVE! Order, order order 😁 Yeeha… OK, enuf of that, right? Right! On with the show… Today’s card was super fun to make – I had not done one of these before and I don’t really know what to call it – so… calling it ‘Quilting in Paper Strips’. It’s made with the True Love Designer Series Paper available TODAY – just sayin’.

True Love Designer Series Paper – Quilting in Paper Strips – #1

TGIF has a challenge with the theme being black & white – and I’m entering this card in that challenge. No doubt there will be lots of entries – what the heck.

This True Love Designer Series Paper is just beautiful… to say the least. I don’t have the stamps & dies that coordinate with this paper – yet… but will soon… but as you can see, the paper did all the work for this card. And it was really super easy. Strips were added in a dark/ light kind of pattern. In true quilting, there is dark, medium, then light, and I got some of that but not totally. Nonetheless, I think this looks really sharp and I’m excited, especially since it’s my first try with this process.

The strips are cut in various widths – no need to really measure – anywhere from 3/8″ to 5/8″. I adhered them to a basic black card stock 3 7/8 x 5 1/8. I began with three strips going in the same direction, then three strips in another direction, spacing them a bit apart so you see the background color (in this case, the Basic Black), until the entire page was covered. And sometimes I adhered with liquid glue and sometimes with Stampin Seal. It just depended. I trimmed the edges so they were even, then attached this to a slightly larger piece of Whisper White card stock (4 x 5 1/4) with liquid glue. I then wrapped this with fun ribbon – Glittered Organdy Ribbon – around the card and secured in back with glue dots. I prepared a bow out of the same ribbon but did not attach it just yet. I wanted a sentiment… the Simply Succulent stamp set was right on my desk and I pulled from that the sentiment ‘thanks’, stamped that with Memento Black ink on a Whisper White scrap. I cut it with the smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I die cut another piece from the same die set – Stitched So Sweetly Dies in Basic Black card stock. I adhered the two together with liquid glue, put dimensionals on the back and adhered right over the ribbon. Then I adhered the bow with a glue dot. I added some more glam with three Rhinestone Basic Jewels. This completed panel was adhered to a Basic Black card base (4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2) with dimensionals and the card front was complete.

True Love Designer Series Paper – inside, #2

I fussy cut from one of the True Love Designer Series Papers, these gorgeous flowers. Normally I would cover them in color… but for the TGIF challenge, I couldn’t do that. I adhere them with liquid glue to this panel of Whisper White card stock, again at 3 7/8 x 5 1/8. I adhered this directly to the card base and the inside was done.

Despite the final picture… I redid the envelope… I actually did strips in the lower left corner 😁 I’ll see if I can upload the photo… having trouble. YAY – got it.. the photo at right.

For the envelope, I covered the flap in coordinating paper from True Love DSP and adhered one of the fussy cut flowers with leaves from the same paper with liquid glue – FINIS!

Stampin’ Up! Dragonflies Playing

Here it is Jan 3, 2021 ~ did you look forward to a new year, new beginnings, new challenges? Did you set some new goals? And perhaps more importantly, did you leave some worries, hurts behind? That may be the most difficult thing to do, but necessary… I’m rooting for you … and trying to do the same.

I played yesterday… with dragonflies, Laser-Cut Paper, the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack and one or two other things. Let’s take a look at these creations.

Love, love, love this Laser-Cut Paper (available to customers Jan 5!). It’s on both cards 1 & 2. And the dragonfly on card 1 was created with vellum, 99% alcohol and inks. Card #3 uses the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack & Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP. Let’s get into some detail for each of these cards.

Card #1

  • Thick Whisper White card base; covered on the front with a panel of Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP (a FREE item during Sale-a-bration with a $50 purchase – begins Jan 5)
  • Laser-Cut Paper adhered to a panel of the same Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP, but the ombre paper turned the opposite way. Wrap this with Striped Ribbon in Blackberry Bliss and tie a bow. Secure the ribbon with a glue dot under the knot. (The ribbon will be available Jan 5!) This was adhered to a Blackberry Bliss panel and popped onto the card front with dimensionals.
  • The sentiment panel was stamped with a sentiment from Dandy Garden stamp set (yep, available Jan 5) on a scrap of the oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP and die cut with Stitched So Sweetly Dies. Put on dimensionals and pop above the bow. Add the super sweet Metallic Pearls in silver.
  • The butterfly was created with vellum, 99% alcohol and inks using a brush. This took a bit of doing as you must work quickly and not get the vellum too saturated or it really wrinkles and becomes un-usable. After drying, I stamped the dragonfly in Tuxedo Black ink and punched it with the Dragonfly Punch. I then stamped another dragonfly on vellum and punched it as well. I adhered the two together with mini dimensionals and popped this onto the card front with additional mini dimensionals. I added three sweet Metallic Pearls in silver to the body and the card front was done.

For the inside of Card #1 I used one of the Laser-Cit Paper flowers and adhered it with dabs of liquid glue. I then added this frame in Blackberry Bliss card stock that was created with Stitched Rectangles Dies and trimmed.

For the envelope, I stamped the single posy from Dandy Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored the center with stamped-off Blackberry Bliss ink with the appropriate stamp from the Dandy Garden stamp set, then colored the leaves with Stampin Blends in Old Olive. The flap was covered with a scrap of the Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP and the card was complete.

Card #2

Dandy Laser-Cut Paper, Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP – card #2

I was enamored of the Dandy Laser-Cut Paper and couldn’t quit!. All these dragonflies in one is just gorgeous. I began by adhering a panel of Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP to a piece of Whisper White card stock. This was adhered to a card base of Misty Moonlight card stock. I then adhered the Dandy Laser-Cut Paper to a piece of vellum with dots of liquid glue, being careful not to use too much. This was popped up on mini dimensionals and adhered to the panel of the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP. I pulled out the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack and used the sentiment to peel & stick right on the card front. I then added a bow from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack (in Misty Moonlight & Silver cording) and the front was done.

For the inside I stamped the dragonflies in Misty Moonlight ink from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set onto a panel of Whisper White card stock. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink. I adhered the finished panel to the inside of he card with liquid glue. For the envelope, I used the same dragonfly from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and stamped it in Misty Moonlight on the front of the envelope. I used another coordinating piece of the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP to the envelope flap and finis!

Card #3

Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack – card #3

I found a panel in the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack that I wanted to use and adhered it to a slightly larger piece of Whisper White card stock. I wrapped this with the stunning Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Thread and tied a knot. I placed a glue dot under the knot to hold it in place. I then added a super cute Ladybug Trinket climbing on the dandelion. It was added with a glue dot. I had found a piece of the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP that I thought went really well with the front panel. The DSP was adhered to Bumblebee card stock and that was adhered to the Misty Moonlight card front. I returned to the ribboned panel, put dimensionals on the back and adhered it to finish the card front.

For the inside I stamped the single posy from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, stamped the filler for the flower in Bumblebee ink and colored the leaves and flower stem with Old Olive Stampin Blends. This Whisper White panel was adhered to a slightly larger piece of Bumblebee card stock and that was then added to the inside of the card – all with liquid glue. For the envelope I stamped the same single dandelion to the front and colored it the same as the inside of the card. I used the same DSP as the card front for the envelope flap.

So – what do you think? What is your favorite card? Each is so different – I really like them all. But I think my favorite is the Misty Moonlight with the Dandy Laser-Cut dragonflies.

Stampin” Up! NEW Floating & Fluttering

Happy New Years Eve DAY! This year will be behind us in a flash – and 2021 will be ushered in. Are you doing ‘hoopla & horns’ to celebrate? Whatever you do, just be safe, ok.

Today’s card is a new item – available to customers VERY SOON – Jan 5! The Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog, along with the Sale-a-bration catalog go live Jan 5, 2021. If you do not have a demonstrator, I’m happy to help. Here’s the bundle I worked with for this card.

Floating & Fluttering Bundle – available Jan 5, 2021

Just look at those fun images… this was my first play with this bundle and I’m anxious to do more. Notice there are no sentiments, but the images are wonderful. And that rectangle die – so sweet! And here’s the card I made.

Floating & Fluttering – #1

Supplies used:

  • Forever Greenery DSP – I appreciate how the leaf image on the DSP has the same shape as the leaves in the die cut, and that’s why I chose this paper
  • Garden Green card stock behind the DSP (and on the inside as well)
  • Thick Whisper White card base
  • Basic Black card stock as a liner to the focal image
  • Bumblebee card stock for the strips
  • Several inks: Petal Pink & Calypso Coral; Bumblebee & Pumpkin Pie; Soft Sea Foam & Garden Green; Tuxedo Black Memento.
  • 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots

I began by stamping the image from the Floating & Fluttering stamp set (all one stamp!) in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Whisper White card stock. The largest butterfly and the full butterfly are both done by stamping first in Petal Pink, then the detail stamp in Calypso Coral. The half butterfly was first stamped in Bumblebee (lightly) then the detail in Pumpkin Pie. I then die cut it with the appropriate die from the Fluttering Dies. I mounted it with dimensionals and adhered it to a Whisper White base. This was then adhered to Basic Black card stock with liquid glue. I added sevaral 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots for a bit of interest – and the colors bring out the colors of the butterflies. It was at this point I went searching in my stash for a DSP that would look really nice as a background – and found the Forever Greenery DSP. I adhered it to Garden Green card stock with liquid glue, then onto the Thick whisper White card base, again with liquid glue. Alittle more detail was needed so I began playing around with various ribbons and card stock – and finalized on the two Bumblebee strips. There y were adhered with a bit of liquid glue in the center of each strip and the focal image was adhered with dimensionals, centering it just so. And the front was complete.

Floating & Fluttering, inside – #2

For the inside I used the same image as the front of the card just on the corners – and only a portion of the image. This was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Whisper White. I decided not to color these images, but you certainly could. This was mounted on another panel of Garden Green card stock and adhered with liquid glue to the card base. FINIS.

Floating & Fluttering – #3

For the envelope I covered the flap with the same Forever Greenery DSP with liquid glue. Then I stamped a portion of the same stamp as the card front on the envelope itself, in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I colored only the one butterfly by stamping first in Soft Sea Foam ink then the detail in Garden Green ink. Love this!

Hubby really liked this card 😊… One of the nice things about this is that it can be used for any occasion at this point. But if I wanted, I could add a sentiment. I like having a card without a sentiment – it covers a lot of bases!

Thanks for stopping by today. This stamp bundle will be available to order in just a couple of days – how exciting is that! Please let me know if I may help you in some way. Card cuts for this card are listed below.

As a thank you to my customers, when the order is between $50-$150 I offer a SU! item of your choice valued at $10. Remember to use MY CURRENT HOST CODE SAZV3JTK– good until Jan 3.

Stampin’ Up! Darling Donkey Birthday

Today’s card features some of the new masculine Well-Suited Designer Series Paper that will be available come Jan 5, 2021 – AND the Darling Donkey stamp set that is a FREE ITEM as part of Sale-a-bration, also beginning Jan 5, 2021. That free item is only when purchasing $50 worth of Stampin’ Up! product – just reminding…

Well-Suited Darling Donkey b’day – #1

I am smitten with these donkeys – don’t ask me why, but they definitely tickle my fancy. This card is destined for a young man who is kinda shy and that smile on the donkey is just, well, sweet. And do you notice how the donkey ate a bit of the paper edge? heehee… ok – details…

  • Card stock base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4. This is Pacific Point
  • Well-Suited DSP papers (2) are the same size, just angled – 3 3/4 x 4 3/4, adhered to card base with Stampin Seal
  • Sentiment banner: Calypso Coral cut out with Stitched So Sweetly Dies as is the Whisper White panel. I stamped the Whisper White with Pacific Point ink PRIOR to die cutting. The sentiment comes from another new stamp set called Sweet Ice Cream – yep, available Jan 5, 2021. Adhere the Whisper White to the Calypso Coral banner with liquid glue and adhere to the card front with dimensionals.
  • Stamp the donkey from Darling Donkeys stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and color with Stampi9n Blends – Crumb Cake and Lt Flirty Flamingo. Fussy cut and adhere to the top of the banner: NOTE… I used a dimensional under the donkeys head and liquid glue on his “sit-upon bottom”.
Well-Suited Darling Donkey b’day – #2
  • For the inside I adhered another panel of the Well-Suited DSP 3 3/4 x 4 3/4 with liquid glue
  • On a panel of Whisper White 3 1/2 x 4 1/2, I stamped the donkey in Tuxedo Black and colored with Stampin Blends, Crumb Cake.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Darling Donkey stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  • Adhere this panel to the DSP and the inside is done
Well-Suited Darling Donkey b’day – #3

For the envelope – I used one of the same DSP used on the card front to adhere to the envelope flap. I then stamped the sentiment on the card front – again from the darling Donkey stamp set. FINIS… Simple and masculine for a young man, yes!
