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 the  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…

SU! In Good Taste DSP – Masculine Card

Hi Everyone – it’s… Thursday – almost Labor Day weekend… can you believe it? I cannot. As long and slow as this pandemic has been, time did not slow in any way… And guess what? The Kentucky Derby is also this weekend. I enjoy horse racing and this one in particular, for some reason and plan on watching it.

The card today was made for two specific reason… 1) last week I did a Christmas Card with this same layout and mentioned in my post how easy it would be to ‘transition’ to a masculine (or other sort) of card; reason #2 my friends hubby just had shoulder replacement and it seemed perfect for that.

In Good Taste

What I did… cut three strips of coordinating In Good Taste DSP. Layer on an Early Espresso panel with liquid glue, then onto the Gray Granite card base, also with liquid glue. Cut a length of  Vanilla 1/2″ ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. Adhere with just a bit of Stampin Seal. Over this goes a banner on dimensionals. Banner: Early Espresso cs cut with the Ornate Frames Dies (gosh these are versatile!!). Stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla scrap and die cut with another of the Ornate Frames Dies. Adhere to the Early Espresso banner with liquid glue; add dimensionals and place over the ribbon. Bingo – your card front is done!

For the inside.. on a panel of Very Vanilla, stamp the leaf/ fall floral bouquet in stamped off once Crumb Cake ink. Over the top of this stamp the sentiment from Healing Hugs stamp set in Early Espresso ink. Adhere the completed Very Vanilla panel to Early Espresso cs with liquid glue then add to the card base the same way. yes – card completed…

In Good Taste – Masculine

In the last photo I’m hoping you can see that I dry embossed the envelope flap after adhering Early Espresso cs to the flap. I used the Tastful Textile 3D embossing folder. The front of the card got another of those floral/ leaf bouquets. And this card is ready to send! Actually – it went out in yesterday’s mail 😊

In Good Taste – Masculine

SU! Celebrate Sunflowers/ Sunflowers Dies

Hi Everyone. Have I told you lately… how much I like the Sunflowers Dies? I could play with that bundle for a very long time and be quite content.  I had this sunflower sitting on my desk from a previous project and it kept calling me to do something. I pulled out the Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP and began…

Celebrate Sunflowers

What do you think? Do you see those curled leaves? I used an X’acto knife and cut along the lines of several petals all near the center. I could have stamped and die cut several sunflowers, cut them down and layered, but I wanted to try this and I like it. Here’s the full scoop:

Stamp the sunflower using Memento black ink onto Whisper White cs using the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set. With Dark Mango Melody Blends, highlight many of the accents on the sunflower. With an X’acto knife, cut along the lines of several inner petals , leaving them attached to the sunflower, and raise them. TIP: when using an X’acto knife I use a piece of glass as my cutting surface – often that glass has come from an old picture frame that I’m not using and I have covered the rims with tape so there are no sharp edges.

I used the Layering Squares Dies, plain and scalloped, to die cut a piece of the Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP, then cut the Bumblebee cs with the largest scallop die. These I adhered together with liquid glue. I layered the sunflower atop that with dimensionals, intentionally not centered. Then using the Stitched Rectangles Dies, I cut another panel of the Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP that coordinated with the other piece. Next I die cut another another panel of Bumblebee cs with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.. These two were layered together with liquid glue, then the Squares dies with the sunflower was placed with dimensionals. All this was added to a Thick Whisper White card base.

Next came the IN COLOR 2020-2022 Bumblebee Ribbon attached with just a bit of Stampin Seal right in the center. The sentiment strip was first stamped with Memento Black ink using the Posted For You stamp set, then trimmed with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. I then added these gorgeous Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems to give it some sparkle. Perfect touch! And the card front is complete.

Celebrate Sunflowers

For the inside I cut a piece of the darker Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP used on the front of the card and adhered it with liquid glue. The Whisper White panel was first stamped with the Special Delivery stamp from Posted For You in Memento Black ink. Then I did an overlay with a sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink. Adhere this panel over the plaid piece with liquid glue and the inside is done.

Celebrate Sunflowers

For the envelope I took a piece of this same Shaded Spruce plaid and adhered it to the envelope flap with liquid glue. There was just a bit left – a 1/2″ strip, so I adhered that to the front of the card near the bottom. And the entire card is ready for mailing! This one is going to a friend who just had major surgery, that’s why the inside sentiment is so important – ‘you can do this’. Recovery is going to take some mental strength and courage.

So what do you think? Like this? I’m really pleased with the way it turned out. This bundle is just exquisite!

SU! Daisy Delight – Sympathy Card

Hi Everyone – I haven’t posted in a couple of days… lost a dear friend to complications of Covid 19 and well, it just stinks… know what I mean? She was misdiagnosed initially and therefore didn’t get any treatment for longer than necessary. And that’s disappointing on many fronts. She was a gentle soul.

The card today is being sent to her family. Besides being church buddies, we also belonged to a women’s organization together. This card symbolizes some of that organization. And I find the card uplifting and hope the family does as well.

Daisy Lane – Sympathy

It starts with a panel of Whisper White and I have adhered a strip of Subtles 6×6 DSP in So Saffron. On either side I have used the Ornate Borders Dies to die cut a beautiful trim, again from So Saffron, which also is adhered to the Whisper White panel with liquid glue. I then ran this entire panel through the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. I haven’t done this before – where I added layers to a card front and ran it all through an embossing folder, but I love the look! You may see this again in the near future 🙂

Next I took a piece of the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo pack (Whisper White 1/2″ Faux Linen Ribbon) and adhered it with Stampin’ Seal, right through the middle of the DSP strip. Then I added a length of the 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon in Bumblebee over that. This was attached with Stampin Seal in the back only. Then I added the daisy which was stamped from the Daisy Lane stamp set on Whisper White with So Saffron ink. I stamped twice and punched them both with the Daisy Punch. I curled the petals downward using a gentle touch with the bone folder. These were layered together with liquid glue, then two dimensionals together on the back and onto the card front. The center of the daisy got these awesome Beaded Pearls that add a really finished and elegant touch. I made a bow from the same 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot.

Daisy Lane – Sympathy

The sentiment comes from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set and was stamped in Memento Black ink on Whisper White and fussy cut. I cut down several dimensionals into strips and adhered them to the back of the sentiment and added it to the card front. This entire Whisper White panel was adhered to a slightly larger panel of So Saffron card stock. Dimensionals were added to it and on it went to the Thick Whisper White card base.

For the inside I stamped the large daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in So Saffron, stamping off at least once, onto the center of the Whisper White panel. Right on top of that I stamped the sentiment from Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Memento Black ink. This Whisper White panel was adhered to another piece of So Saffron with liquid glue then onto the inside of the card base. And voila – the card was complete!

Daisy Lane – Sympathy

For the envelope I took a piece of So Saffron cs and ran it through the Ornate Flowers 3D Embossing Folder then added it to the envelope flap. For the envelope front I stamped the smaller daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in stamped off once So Saffron ink. Done, done. AND ready to be sent to my friends family.

SU! In The Pines Bundle

Ever have one of those nights when you can’t sleep? Well, that was my night last night – restless, wide-eyed. No doubt I will be worthless most of the day because of that. But for right now, I’m writing my post – and that’s a good thing… In The Pines… I’ve had this bundle for a while and it’s been ‘calling’ me to play, but I kept pulling out other stamp sets or Dies. It is so versatile, some marvelous tree dies. I got busy and created two cards, each very different from the other. Let’s take a peek…

In The Pines w/ coordinating Pine Woods Dies
Card #1
In The Pines w/ Pine Woods Dies
Card #2

Aren’t these trees gorgeous? Card #1 is two die cuts: the intricate part and the outline die. I used the outline after die cutting the detail in white then used the outline again for the green of the tree. The Tree in card #2 is a single tree. The background is the fabulous Evergreen Forest 3D embossing folder.

Let’s go back to card #1 and re-create it… With the Pine Woods Dies, die cut the detail of the tree from Whisper White cs. Then use the outline die to create the tree. Die cut another tree outline from Shaded Spruce cs and adhere the white tree to it with liquid glue. TIP: You could use an adhesive sheet for the detail of the tree and adhere it to the green that way, but I didn’t think of that until later. 

I then took one of the papers from the Plaid Tiding 6×6 DSP and die cut a panel using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the tree to that DSP with dimensionals. Using a larger Stitched Rectangle die, I cut a panel from Shaded Spruce cs. I adhered the DSP piece with the tree to the Shaded Spruce panel with dimensionals. This was then adhered to a Whisper White Note Card with liquid glue. I next attached a Star Element for the tree top, and a copper bow from the Basketweave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack. For the final touch of the front, I adhered Elegant Faceted Gems, both the white and the clear. To me this makes it look as though there are several presents under the tree :O)

For the inside I stamped the tree outline in Shaded Spruce and then the tree ‘filler’ in Garden Green stamped off once. It’s a very cute small tree. For the envelope I used the same Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP to cover the envelope flap then stamped the same tree from the inside of the card to the envelope front. And Card #1 was complete!

Card #2 I did very differently… I took a panel of Whisper White cs and ran it through the Evergreen Forest 3D embossing Folder. I then took a cosmetic brush and tapped it into a Shaded Spruce ink pad and smoothed it around adding color to the paper. I did the same with Garden Green and Granny Apple Green ink. This gave the tree wonderful dimension making them look similar to a real forest :). For the sky I again used the cosmetic brush with Balmy Blue first then an overlay of Seaside Spry. These were done very lightly but it shows clearly.  I adhered this to a larger Whisper White panel with liquid glue. This then was added to a Garden Green card base with dimensionals. I die cut another tree using the Pine Woods Dies from Whisper White and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped in Garden Green ink on a Whisper White strip and comes from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. I cut a banner for the end and adhered it with dimensionals. Here it is again…

In The Pines w/ Pine Woods Dies
Card #2

For the inside I took one of the tree stamps from In The Pines stamp set and stamped it in Garden Green ink on a Whisper White panel. This was adhered to the inside of the card with liquid glue. For the envelope I stamped the same trees both to the card front and the envelope flap. And card #2 was complete! What a fun bundle… I encourage you to try it.

Fun set of cards, right? And so different, yet from the same bundle: In The Pines stamp set w/ coordinates Pine Woods Dies. Love it… Also the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder….

SU! Snow Wonder Stamp Set/ Dies

Tuesday, this musty be Wonderful Wednesday 😁… hee hee hee. And… time for another Christmas card! I know, I need to make some cards using items from the 2020 Annual Catalog, but Christmas, well, I can’t seem to get enough. This is such an EASY card, you could make several using papers from any of the Designer Series Papers and make it fall themed or a thank you or a birthday or even a sympathy card, make it masculine or super feminine. Here goes…

Can you see how you could remake this card? Another post 🙂 The Designer Paper used here is called Heartwarming Hugs DSP. One of the greatest parts of SU! (and I know I have said this before, but..) is how they coordinate. The pack of DSP can so easily be interchanged without thinking too hard. Three strips were cut and adhered to a panel of Whisper White cs and that was adhered to the Pear Pizzazz card base – all with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from Snow Wonder stamp set on a Whisper White scrap with Pear Pizzazz ink then I die cut two banners using the Snow Time Dies, one in Pear Pizzazz and the stamped one in Whisper White. The sentiment banner got dimensionals and placed on top of the Pear Pizzazz banner. I took a length of the Double Stitched Satin Ribbon, 3/8″ Real Red, and looped it, adhering together with glue dots. Once I had it in place on the card front, I cut another length and put it crosswise. The banner went over this with dimesnionals on the back. I felt the front needed something more and used the All The Trimmings Embellishments, Real Red and popped them on the banner. Since they are self adhesive, easy peasy.

Snow Wonder stamp set/ Snow Time Dies

For the inside I took two snowflake embossing dies from the Snow Time Dies and ran them through the die cut machine. I took a sponge dauber and very lightly rubbed over them to show them off a bit more. I’m not sure the picture shows it very well. If you enlarge the photo, you can see the snowflakes. :l

Snow Time Dies – embossed

For the envelope, I used several scraps from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP and adhered them to the envelope flap. And voila! Quick, easy, fun!

SU! StitchedfStars

Hi there! It’s Terrific Tuesday – why not? We can make our day terrific, or not, and this is what I choose – terrific. Let’s go for it…

Today’s card is made with a die set that came out last year called Stitched Stars Dies. For the inside I used a stamp set from the new Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog called Snow Wonder. They worked beautifully together.

Stitched Stars Dies

This is very 3 D as the large star has three dimensionals in its middle. Tis The Season 6×6 DSP  is the centerpiece for this card. I love the contrast of another panel of the same DSP in the background. So let’s talk particulars… Die cut the 6 stars – I happened to use the same paper for all the stars and die cut them all at the same time. Then I took the largest star and scored it…from the center, score to all five points then score again from the center to each of the inner points of the star. Fold along the pointy score lines just with your hands and press firmly. Then fold in the opposite direction (valley) each of side score lines. it creates mountain/ valley creases. Before adhering, let’s prepare the card front panels.

Cut a panel of the Tis The Season 6×6 DSP that coordinates/ contrasts with the die cut stars. Behind this is a panel of coordinating cs – Cherry Cobbler. Both have been adhered to the card front with liquid glue. Now you are ready to place the stars. (Card cuts may be found at the end of this post.)

Put dimesnionals in the center of the star – I stacked three – and place on the front of the card panel. Place the other stars where you desire. I cut mini dimensionals in half to put on three of the other stars, stacking two of them together just with liquid glue. Only the smallest star was adhered to the card front with liquid glue. The three stars on dimesnionals also got a Real Red gem from Wonderful Gems pack. I felt the large star needed something so searched my embellishments and found – drum roll here – Star Designer Elements – and placed one in the large star center. Voila – card front is complete!

For the inside, I adhered a panel of Cherry Cobbler cs to the Thick Whisper White card base with liquid glue. With regular Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment in the center with Cherry Cobbler ink and the Snow Wonder stamp Set. I then stamped the trees, stamping off twice, over the sentiment with Garden Green ink. It’s important to stamp off at least twice so this delicate sentiment shows through the trees. Adhere to the inside of the card. Done, done.

For the envelope I used a coordinating red panel of Tis The Season 6×6 DSP for the envelope flap.

Stitched Stars Dies

So what do you think? So simply done but a very effective standout card. I do hope you will try this and share your results with me.

SU! Wonder of the Season Memories and More Cards/ Envelopes

It’s a new day – AND a new week… let’s make them awesome… make a phone call you have intended to do for a long time but haven’t ; send a card to someone whom you think needs a ‘pick me up’; do a good deed without needing/ wanting recognition.Those are just some ‘off the cuff’ suggestions – you can probably come up with some of your own as well.

Todays cards were made using the Wonders of the Season Memories and More Card Pack + the coordinating Cards & Envelopes. There are two sizes cards in this pack: approx. 3 x 4 & 4 x 6. Also in the pack are several peel & stick stickers/ numbers that can be used for embellishing. More info can be found in the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog on pg 31.

For my first card I chose this gorgeous Just Jade 3 x 4 panel and one of the stickers with the word ‘Joy’. I peeled it off carefully and put it directly onto the panel, trying to center it as best I could. I then adhered it to a piece of Gray Granite cs with liquid glue. I pulled out my Pearls Basic Jewels and put several all over the panel. I adhered dimensionals to the back and adhered this to Whisper White, then another piece of Gray Granite. This toon got dimesnionals and was placed onto the Just Jade card base. And voila – the card front was complete.

For the inside I adhered a panel of Whisper White then added one of the stickers that coordinates with the leaf pattern on the front. Done!

Inside card #1

Card #2 – this card uses one of the larger panels… I love the feathers and the gold. I adhered this green panel to a Brushed Metallic (gold), then directly onto the Wonder of the Season Memories & More card base. I die cut several feathers from the Brushed Metallic (gold) cs, cuz I didn’t know how many I wanted to use :O) The feather comes from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies. I then took a scrap of Whisper White and cut this beautiful banner using the Snow Time Dies. Notice how the banner has this wonderful raised edge all around it? It’s beautiful!! From another piece of Whisper White I die cut the word Peace, using two elements of the word from the Joy Dies. I adhered these together using liquid glue then onto the banner, also with liquid glue. The banner got dimensionals and was mounted in the center of the card. The single feather was added with liquid glue. DONE!

Card #3 – I began by cutting the green panel from the card pack apart, saving the trims for another use later. The center panel was adhered to a strip of the Brushed Metallic (gold) cs. . I added several Wonderful Gems for a bit of glitz. I cut a panel of the Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP and adhered it to one of the Wonder of the Season Memories & More cards. The green panel got dimensionals and went right in the center of the card. Done again!
