Stampin’ Up! OnStage@Home Cards

Yesterday was the end of our virtual OnStage@Home event and we created three cards that I want to share with you today. It was a time of learning about new products and techniques and I’m sorry it’s over. All are made with the Blessings of Home suite of products that we were able to purchase as a bonus for attending convention. These products will be available to customers in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog.

OnStage@Home Card 1

This is the first card we created and I love this paper. It was supposed to be a portrait style card and I had cut my paper in the landscape position – so there you have it… it still works. This is a beautiful stamp that shows all this detail and stamps so easily. It wass stamped in Garden Green ink on a basic white panel and colored with sponge daubers. Interesting way to color, right? Turn your sponge daub er kind of on it’s side, tap into the ink, scrub off just a bit, then color the leaves in Garden Green ink, sort of brushing the ink on the leaf. Then do the same with the flower in Misty Moonlight ink – changing sponge daubers of course. Then die cut the flower.

I chose to embellish the flower a bit and die cut some of the ‘sprays’ in the set in Vellum to adhere around the flower.

When adhering the large stamped image to the card, we added dimensionals to the top and the bottom and a strip of Stampin’ Seal across the middle. This allows for dimension in the flower yet also keeps the card from being too bulky – which I really like. I slipped in the vellum die cuts and adhered with dabs of liquid glue.

The banner was stamped in Garden Green ink on a Basic White strip, then adhered with liquid glue to the Denim Ribbon that is part of the suite. Add Stampin’ Seal to the back of the ribbon and attach in the middle part of the flower. Add Matte Dots that are also a part of the suite and the card front is done.

For the inside and the envelope, I stamped a partial flower of the smaller bouquet, both in Garden Green ink. Isn’t the image wonderful?

Card #2 is a notecard size using Cinnamon Cider card stock as the card base. A panel of the Heart & Home DSP was added, again with dimensionals at the top and bottom and a strip of Stampin’ Seal in the middle. We stamped the smaller floral bouquet in Cinnamon Cider ink on a panel of Shimmer Paper. (Love this paper and it’s available NOW in the 2021 Annual Catalog. Shimmer paper is good for watercoloring, using Stampin’ Blends and has as bit of shimmer to it – therefore the name :). We used a Water Painter to pull out some of the color on a couple of flowers. When doing this process, it’s important not to have squeezed too much water into the brush. Adhere this panel at an angle over the DSP.

OnStage@Home Card 2

We stamped the sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink, to bring out the DSP in the background, also on Shimmer paper. We added dimensionals just to left side of the panel and adhered it to the card. We die cut several of the ‘sprays’ and adhered with liquid glue under the right side of the sentiment panel. We added the Cinnamon Cider flower tops with dabs of liquid glue.

For the inside of the card I stamped a partial image of the small floral bouquet in Cinnamon Cider ink.

OnStage@Home Card 3

This card is landscape intentionally but you can see clearly that I cut my paper in portrait – silly me. Yes, I WILL have to redo this card! The card base is Fresh Freesia with the added panel of Heart & Home DSP. And yes, to drive home the idea of not too much bulk, dimensionals were added to the far right and left sides of the DSP and a bit of Stampin’ Seal in the middle. Die pieces were cut in both Cinnamon Cider and Fresh Freesia, adding the longer sprays with liquid glue near the middle. The banner was stamped in Cinnamon Cider ink and this is a reverse side of this DSP – love it. The banner was added with dimensionals then the Fresh Freesia Flowers with dabs of liquid glue.

For the inside of the card I stamped the partial flower in Garden Green ink the colored it with Stampin’ Blends in Pale Papaya. And the envelope was stamped in Garden Green ink but not colored.

As you already know, the first & last cards must be re-done… so here’s a challenge for you… choose which of the cards you like the best and whichever card gets the most votes, will be sent to one of the responders. And yes, it will be going in the proper direction – promise.

Here are the items in this suite.

Stampin’ Up! Words of Cheer Notecards

Hi friends. It’s Saturday and the last day of our OnStage@Home Stampin’ Up virtual convention :O(. There is always lots of inspiration and ideas AND the viewing of the next Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog + the Sale-a-bration items as well!. Oh my! Some really fun new products that I think you’re going to love. Can’t wait to share the catalog with you… but not just yet. We have to wait a bit for that. My notecards today are a direct CASE (Copy And Share Everything) of Tami Wilson. I used some different ribbons, but the idea is strictly hers. Give credit where credit is due, right? With various card stocks and DSP, these would be perfect thank you notes, sympathy cards, etc. Of course, change the sentiment as well 😏…

Words of Cheer Notecards.1

These are so fun & easy I couldn’t resist – and they are the perfect size to use as a gift or a thank you. They would fit in our mini Paper Pumpkin boxes if you wanted to get really fancy. :O)

Here are the details:

  • Basic White notecards & Envelopes
  • Tidings of Christmas 6×6 DSP cut to 2 3/4 x 5
  • Cork Paper cut to 1 1/4 x 5 then die cut with the Scalloped Contours Dies
  • Black card stock cut to 1 1/2 x 2 1/4
    • stamp with VersaMark ink using the Whimsy & Wonder stamp set, then heat emboss with White Embossing Powder.
    • Die cut with Tailor Made Tags Dies.
  • Soft Succulent card stock 1 1/2 ” square: die cut holly leaves from the Christmas Cheer Dies.
  • Evening Evergreen card stock 1 1/2″ square: die cut pine sprigs from the Christmas Cheer Dies.

Putting it together:

  • Adhere the DSP to the far right side of the Note Card
  • Adhere the Cork die cut near the fold and just covering the DSP
  • Wrap the notecard three to four times with Linen Thread and tie a bow. (I also used White Bakers Twine & Red Crochet thread)
  • Add the die cut sentiment panel with dimensionals
  • decorate with the pine sprigs and holly leaves, adding with glue dots or dabs of liquid glue
  • add Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. If you want you can also add Genial Gems in the gold or Gilded Gems for extra bling
  • adhere the bow to the sentiment panel with a glue dot to secure in place.
Words of Cheer Notecards.2

Aren’t these sweet? I can’t wait to create more of these with other card stocks and DSP! What about you? Want to make some with me? OK… let’s connect and see how we can make that happen! Below is the shopping list.

Stampin’ Up! Time of Giving Tags

Hello again – TGIF! The OnStage@Home event began last night ~ that’s the Stampin’ Up! yearly convention ~ and lots of demonstrators were honored for their achievements. My upline, Mary Deatherage, #34 in Sales in the US & her upline, Amy Koenders #13 and a $1,000,000 achiever just recently. SPECIAL CONGRATULATIONS LADIES!!! So pleased to be part of your team :O) You are awesome leaders in this industry.

Now for the Time of Giving tags. I JUST got this bundle in the mail yesterday and couldn’t wait to play with it. I did not have a lot of time, but these are what I made. They could so easily be added to a card base and made into cards.

Time of Giving Tags

There are more dies in this bundle and I only show three here. I used the Tailor Made Tags Dies in addition to make the smallest of these + Real Red, Garden Green card stocks & Regals 6×6 DSP, layered on Basic White die cut with the Tailored Tag Dies And that adorable little bow…. from the dies in the Time of Giving Bundle. (Bundles are 10% off automatically… – just sayin’)

The two larger tags were made with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch on Basic White card stock. The snowflakes were emphasized with Wink of Stella and the 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels in Polished Pink with the Open Weave Ribbon also in Polished Pink. The Santa die cut is die cut in Real Red and layered on the Basic White piece. The ribbon is Real Red Double Stitched Satin. The sentiment is also from Time of Giving stamp set.

It’s raining today – so should be a good day for staying inside… more of the OnStage@Home virtual convention. YAY! You, too, could be attending this virtual convention, if you were part of my team. Stampin’ Up! has an incredible joining special going on RIGHT NOW until Nov 30… $75 for a Starter Kit’s worth of $125 SU! products that YOU get to choose. You may do that with me – here.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop Hand-Penned Petals

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Krew Thursday Blog Hop. The theme for this week is a sketch challenge and I enjoyed/ appreciated a focus :O) I have been so determined to do Christmas cards that I sometimes need to be side-tracked to something else!

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop november 1I -Sketch Challenge'

My card today reminds me of something feminine and it’s special using the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set, the Encircled in Beauty Dies and the Stitched Greenery Die. Let’s have a look see.

Hand-Penned Petals, Encircled in Beauty Dies & Stitched Greenery Dies.1

I just realized when I imported this photo that it’s really hard to see the Blackberry Bliss has been imprinted with the Stitched Greenery Die – ugh! You’ll just have to take my word for it :]

Card Basics:

  • Card base is Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.
  • Blackberry Bliss was cut 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 then run through with the Stitched Greenery Die. It was then trimmed to 4 7/8 in length and cutting that which was trimmed in half. The main panel was adhered to the card base, then one section that was added to the left. This adds an additional element for the eye.
  • Cut a piece of Thick Basic White with the largest of the Encircled in Beauty Dies.
  • Stamp with Memento Black ink the image from Hand-Penned Petals. Color with Stampin’ Blends:Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Light Blackberry Bliss
  • Add a bow tied with the Open Weave Ribbon in Fresh Freesia and add with a glue dot. Add three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
  • Put dimensionals on the back of this circle and add it to the card front, centering it on the large panel.
  • Stamp the sentiment from Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Memento Black ink on a So Saffron scrap. Add dimesnionals and attach.
inside

For the inside of the card I stamped the sentiment, again from Friends are like Seashells stamp set, this time in Blackberry Bliss ink. I really like the fonts on this stamp set and it said exactly what I needed for this card. I added the other strip removed from the front Blackberry Bliss panel, then adhered the Basic White piece (4 x 5 1/4) to the inside of the card.

Hand-Penned Petals, Encircled in Beauty Dies & Stitched Greenery Die

For the envelope, I used the Stitched Greenery Die to ‘decorate’ the envelope flap – and you can clearly see it here. For the front of the envelope, I stamped this sweet spray with Old Olive ink for the stem and Daffodil Delight ink for the flowers, which I stamped twice to make a larger spray ~ and the card is done

I can’t wait to see what the rest of the group has created with this sketch. Please use the ‘next’ button to take you to Amy Koenders of click on the name whose blog you would like to visit.

Stampin’ Up Wintry 3D and Heartfelt Wishes

Hi folks – it’s time to hop w/ Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop 👍 The theme is a Christmas and I have chosen to do a card and a coordinating gift package with the Pretty Pillow Dies.

These were fun to create as a duo ‘package’.Let mer tell you how this was done…

Card Basics:

  • Smoky Slate card base 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Layer Cherry Cobbler card stock 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
  • Run a Basic White panel (4 x 5 1/4) through the Wintry 3D snowflake embossing folder. This panel is wider than the folder, therefore line it up and run it through again so it looks as though it’s a full size EF. Adhere this panel to the Cherry Cobbler piece

Decorate:

  • Cut a length of the Glittered Organdy Ribbon in Black. Use Seal+ to adhere to the snowflake front
  • Cut a length of the 7/8 wide Textured Ribbon in Smoky Slate, put dimensionals on the back and attached over the Organdy Ribbon.
  • Add a Wonderful Snowflake with a glue dot.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink from Heartfelt Wishes stamp set on a Basic White scrap. Fussy cut. Add Dimensionals in several places and attache.
  • Add Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels in dark red ~ and the card front is done!
inside

The inside of the card was kept super simple intentionally. Cherry Cobbler card stock cut at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 is added to the inside of the card base. On top of that is Basic White cut to 4 x 5 1/4. A 1/2″ strip of Regals 6×6 DSP in Cherry Cobbler was added at the bottom of the panel. And that was it…

Wintry 3D EF & Heartfelt Wishes card & envelope

For the envelope I used the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder to dry emboss the flap ~ that was it. I like the simplicity & the texture & the layers the entire look of the card & envelope create together. Hope you like as well!

The little gift package is created with Thick Basic White card stock, die cut with the Pretty Pillow Dies, then dry embossed with the Wintery 3D snowflake Embossing Folder. Interestingly, this does not cover the full tab that is folded in, but it didn’t seem necessary to run it through the EF again. I did die cut another frontal piece from Cherry Cobbler card stock to fully show the delicate design on the front. That was adhered with liquid glue. I then put the side tabs in and used liquid glue to adhere them as well. I tied a length of Shimmer Ribbon in Gray Granite around the package and secured it with a bow. It can easily slide off tomopen.

The card & this little gift package are perfect for a beautiful set of earrings – hint, hint! Of course, a delicate necklace might fit nicely too :O) Just sayin!

Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home

Hello again stamping friends. It’s Friday and almost the weekend. I hope you have some fun plans made. I ha ve a pretty couple of cards for you today, made w/ Blessings of Home Suite of products that will be available in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog. I was able to order this early as I am attending the OnStage@Home convention of Stampin’ Up! Last years convention was also virtual and it was awesome… I was inspired by speakers & projects and excited about being an Independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. This year I expect more of the same. :o)

Before I share my cards with you, Stampin’ Up! has a promotion going on now that beats anything I’ve seen. Join with me to be a demonstrator for $75 and get $125 worth of SU! products that you choose yourself! Once you join… 20% off every purchase you make. You may do that here. There are several advantages to being a demonstrator, besides the discount on every order. Meeting other demonstrators and having a supportive crafting, like-minded group of folks is one of the best advantages there is.

Now for the cards… :O)

This collection of products has – once again – gorgeous Designer Series Paper, Blessings of Home stamp set & coordinating Flowers of Home Die set, Denim Ribbon & Classic Matte dots. For both cards, the card cuts & instructions are the same: one is ‘landscape’ and one is ‘portrait’. I’ve used the emboss-resist technique but incorporated the Stampin’ Blends on one of the cards. On the landscape card I added the Garden Gems from Eden’s Garden suite and on the. ‘portrait’ card are the new Classic Matte Dots from the Heart & Home Collection.

Card basics:

  • Cut card base: portrait card is 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 (Misty Moonlight); landscape card is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 (Garden Green).
  • Layer 1: Kraft 6×6 paper/ Pale Papaya ~ 4 x 5 1/4 adhered directly to the card base
  • Layer 2: Heart & Home Designer Series paper ~ 3 3/4 x 5. (Be aware of the direction of the paper!) Adhere this directly to Layer 1.
  • Layer 3: 2 3/4 x 4 ~ Kraft 6×6 paper and Pale Papaya. This layer will eventually be on dimensionals in the center of the card.
  • Layer 4: decorative panel 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 ~ Basic White card stock

Decorating the top panel:

  • Stamp the bouquet image from Blessings of Home stamp set in VersaMark on the Basic White panel. Note the direction of the panel! One bouquet will be fully seen, while the other is a partial stamp.
  • Sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder & heat set.
  • Once cooled, with a Blending Brush, add color to the panel, Pale Papaya ink for the flower sections and Soft Succulent ink for the leaf sections. Use a soft cloth to rub any excess ink from the embossing.
  • Add this panel with liquid glue to Layer 3.
  • On the ‘portrait’ card add a length of Denim Ribbon around Layers 3 & 4, adhering in back with Seal+. Slip another length under the Denim Ribbon and tie a knot. Add a glue dot under the knot to keep it in place.
  • Put dimensionals on the back of these two layers & add to the center of the card.
  • Make a bow with the Simply Elegant Trim in Gold and attach to each card front with a glue dot.

The inside…. I treated each card differently for the inside, therefore I’ll give the directions separately :O)

Blessings of Home card class. landscape inside

For this ‘landscape’ card I cut a panel of Pale Papaya 4 x 5 1/4 and adhered it to the inside of the card. I stamped the large floral bouquet from Blessings of Home stamp set in VersaMark on a panel of Basic White 21/2 x 3 3/4. I sprinkled Gold Embossing Powder over it and heat set. I used the Emboss Resist technique once more to add color to the bouquet: Pale Papaya on the flowers and Soft Succulent on the leaves and surrounding area, covering most of the panel. I polished the panel with a soft cloth to remove any excess inks on the embossing. I then added more color with Stampin’ Blends: Pale Papaya & Cinnamon Cider for the flowers and Soft Succulent for the leaves. This added more dimension to this bouquet and I really liked it.

On a 2 1/4 x 3 3/4 panel of Basic White I stamped the sentiment from Blessings of Home in VersaMark, sprinkled it with more Gold Embossing Powder and heat set. I again used the emboss-resist technique with a Blending Bush to enhance the sentiment with Pale Papaya ink, then around the edges with Soft Succulent ink. I rubbed with a soft cloth to remove any excess ink from the embossing. Both panels were added to the inside with liquid glue ~ and the card was done.

Blessings of Home card class. portrait inside

For the portrait card I stamped the two sentiments from Blessings of Home stamp set in VersaMark ink on a Basic White panel 4 x 5 1/4; sprinkled Gold Embossing Powder over and heat set. Again using the emboss-resist technique i added the Soft Succulent with a Blending Brush, enhancing the sentiment. I used a soft cloth to remove excess ink from the embossing and adhered tghe panel to the inside of the card. Done!

This is just a lovely feminine stamp set with coordinating dies. I’m pleased with these cards. Now to do a card with the larger floral bouquet as the main focal point… yes! And the dies indicate I could do a wreath card as well – yay!

Heart & Home OnStage Project Collection – see photos below…

I did not show the Denim Ribbon as it is on the Misti Moonlight card above.

These will be available in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog :o) You can clearly see I used the Classic Matte Dots on the one project today 😏

Stampin’ Up! Painted Christmas Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi folks ~ it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you’ve come from the talented Tara Carpenter, welcome to my blog. The theme this week is Christmas and I’ve chosen to do a sort of flap card that can also be used for a gift card. It’s super easy to do and the Painted Christmas DSP is perfect on the card.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop november 4 Theme Challenge Christmas'

Painted Christmas Flap fold.1

Aren’t the colors wonderful in this DSP? I love all the shades of green with the sparkle of Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Notice how the tip of the flap goes into the corner? If you decide to insert a gift card, simply leave the card front free & not insert it into the corner piece. It works just as easily either way. Now for directions…

Basics:

  • Cut the card base to 4 1/4 x 11 and score at 5 1/2, then remove a panel 2 3/4 x 4 1/4. Save this panel for the flap. 🙂 I used Evening Evergreen for this. Cut a 2″ square then trim it diagonally point to point and set it aside.
  • Cut the next layer: 2 5/8 x 4 1/8 ( cut 2), 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 for the inside. I used Pear Pizzazz for this step.
  • Cut DSP panels: 2 1/2 x 4 (cut 2 coordinating pieces). I used Painted Christmas DSP and simply turned one of the panel to the other side.
  • Stamp the sentiment on a Basic White piece with Garden Green ink and the Christmas to Remember stamp set. Die cut the panel with the Seasonal Labels Dies.
  • Stamp leaves from the Christmas Season stamp set, both in Pear Pizzazz and Soft Succulent inks on Basic White scraps. Die cut with the Seasonal Labels Dies.
  • Stamp the inside Basic White panel with Real Red ink using the Christmas to Remember stamp set, centering the sentiment. Keep in mind the placement for the sentiment as it needs to ‘hide behind’ the front flap of the card.
  • Stamp the envelope while you’re at it – so all the stamping is done. I again used Real Red ink and the sentiment from Christmas to Remember stamp set.

Now let’s put this together…

  • Adhere the Pear Pizzazz panels to the card: front panel, flap panel and the inside of the card.
  • Adhere the DSP panels: front panel & the flap panel. Remember to reverse one side for contrast.
  • Adhere the inside sentiment panel.
  • Adhere the diagonal panel (Evening Evergreen) to the lower right corner with Tear n Tape cut in half lengthwise. Attach the Tear n Tape to the bottom of the diagonal and the right side. Because of the layers this piece needs to be held firmly in place, bottom and side, but still allow the flap to be inserted. Remember if you do not want to insert the flap it can be used for a gift card. You also do not have to add this piece!
  • Add the flap panel to the front, centering it. This will be about 1/2″ from the fold and 3/4″ from the top. I use my grid paper to keep things straight.
  • Attach the front sentiment with dimensionals. Add the die cut leaves with liquid glue. I slipped one under the front sentiment. The other I attached to the banner itself: glue on the portion on the banner & dimensionals on those off the banner.
  • Add three Red Rhinestone Jewels to the flap.This added color just brings the card to life!
Painted Christmas Flap Fold.2

You can see here that I die cut another of the fronds and added it to the side of the sentiment. It brings the design of the DSP inside and brings the theme all together. I attached another Red Rhinestone Basic Jewel to bring more glam to the inside ~ and love it!.

Painted Christmas Flap Fold.3

I added another piece of the Painted Christmas DSP to the envelope flap & trimmed it to fit. And the Merry Christmas sentiment was stamped in the beginning when all stamping was done.

What do you think? Fun, easy card and it could be created in multiples if you wanted to. Change the card base, change the DSP, change the sentiment, leave the diagonal panel for the gift card or don’t add it. Lots of options. And there’s no waste – you use all the pieces of the original cut of the card base ~ another plus!
