Stampin’ Up! Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack

This card pack – Dandy Garden Memories & More is a wonderful addition to making cards – or, if you are a scrapbooker, perfect for that as well. I am sharing two cards today that feature the laser-cut elements of this card pack. They are the focal point for these two cards. Obviously I have paired the laser-cut panels with other Stampin’ Up! products… πŸ™‚ Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP forms the background papers for both cards. I have also included Brilliant Wings Dies, but a full listing will be at the end of this post. Let’s take a look at the cards.

Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack – Card #1

The background paper is is from the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP and features a dotted Calypso Coral. I cut it slightly larger than the laser-cut panel then matted it on a panel of Basic White card stock – all done with liquid glue. I next added the ribbon by using Seal + and running it across the triple layers. I took a length of ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and created folds for extra dimension and charm. I then added three very sweet Ladybug Trinkets with glue dots. I put this on dimensionals and added it to the card base of Calypso Coral card stock.

For the inside I simply added two stickers from the card pack: the strip which brings in the Calypso Coral and also a bee as though it is taking supplement from the flower. For the envelope I took another one of the card pack items and adhered it to the envelope flap, adhering with liquid glue. I also added one of the stickers that coordinates with the card front.

Card #2 is very light & springy. I added the laser-cut panel to a piece of the Playing w/ Patterns 6×6 DSP. I then die cut an outline of the butterfly with another panel of the same DSP pack using the Brilliant Wings Dies. I then die cut the detail of the butterfly in Basic White card stock and layered them together with a bit of liquid glue just along the body, then adhered it directly to the card front with more liquid glue. I added three Metallic Pearls to the butterfly body – in silver. I wanted a ribbon and used one of the ribbons from the Playing w/ Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack – Purple Posy variegated. I used a glue dot under the knot to hold it in place. I stamped the sentiment from Field of Flowers stamp set in Gorgeous Grape ink on a Basic White strip. I adhered that to the same DSP as is the backdrop of the butterfly and trimmed the ends with the Banners Pick a Punch. I put this on dimensionals and added it just beneath the ribbon. I added two more of the silver Metallic Pearls to this sentiment banner.

Dandy Garden Memories &N More Card Pack – card #2

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Gorgeous Grape ink, then added more of the same DSP as on the front of the card with liquid glue.

For the envelope I stamped the grassy portion in Granny Apple Green ink from the same Field of Flowers stamp set. I then added the flowers in Gorgeous Grape ink. The envelope flap got more of the same Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP.

I love this kind of card to have on hand. They can so easily be a sympathy card or birthday card or just a simple note. Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Beauty Shines

Did you ever notice how some stamp sets are soothing? Perhaps that sounds odd, but it’s like background music that is always there and is comforting, while other music makes you want to dance/ move. This is the former: reliable and comforting and somehow simple but elegant. This stamp set has been on my desk for a couple of days, just waiting … and I finally took the plunge with it.

Nature’s Beauty Shines – #1

No DSP on this card! I feel as though I should make this again ~ in Very Vanilla, just to see the difference. Maybe I will, but for now it’s Basic White Thick we have for the card base. I stamped the bunny from Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Smoky Slate ink on a Basic White panel, then die cut it with the second largest of the Stitched Squares Dies. I then stamped the grasses from the same stamp set with Soft Sea Foam ink and Granny Apple Green ink. Because of the darker green grass, I die cut a scalloped square using the Layering Squares Dies and Granny Apple Green card stock. I adhered these two together with liquid glue. I then took the Sheer Ribbon in Pool Party and wove it back and forth, adhered it to the back of this panel with Seal+. I took another strip of Basic White card stock and ran it through the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder. (Love this embossing folder!) I adhered this embossed panel to the card front, off-set. I stamped the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set in Granny Apple Green ink. Next I adhered the bunny panel with the ribbon with dimensionals. I added three Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins and called the front done.

Nature’s Beauty Shines – inside, #2

For the inside I adhered a leftover panel I had in my stash and used it as a frame. I stamped the cute egg from Hey, Chick stamp set in Smoky Slate ink. I then stamped the grasses from Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Soft Sea Foam ink then Granny Apple Green ink and the inside was complete as well.

Nature’s Beauty Shines – #3

For the envelope I kept it really simple by simply embossing the envelope flap with the same Meadow Moments Embossing Folder. I love the simplicity of this card and how unassuming. Hope you like it as well. Card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Greenery Sympathy

Sympathy cards can be really difficult to make, mostly because of the subject. Forever Greenery DSP helps to lighten that burden with beautiful papers. My first card/s use the Forever Gold Laser-Cut SDSP as embellishment and make this simple and elegant.

The layout for these two cards is exactly the same, I just used different papers from the DSP pack and a circular laser-cut piece vs a rectangular laser-cut. It’s wonderful how different these two are and yet so similar. The sentiment comes from Path of Petals stamp set for both cards. For the card on the left, I used a 2″ circle punch to create the circle and stamped leaves in Pretty Peacock ink using the Forever Fern stamp set. You also see Pear Pizzazz card stock outlining the DSP. On the card at right I used leaves from Touched My Heart stamp set and stamped in Soft Sea Foam ink, same as the card stock behind the DSP. I embellished both cards with Metallic Pearls.

And here are the insides for these two cards

The card on left is stamped in Pretty Peacock: the sentiment from Path of Petals stamp set, leaves from the Forever Fern stamp set. The card at right uses the stamps from Touched My Heart stamp set stamped in Pretty Peacock ink and the leaves stamped in Soft Sea Foam ink.

This is the second set of sympathy cards – again same layout, just different papers and embellishments.

Again – same layout for these two. The backing for the DSP and sentiment band on the left card is Very Vanilla card stock. The ribbon is Very Vanilla / Gold Pleated ribbon and again I used Metallic Pearls for embellishment. The card on the right uses Pear Pizzazz card stock for backing of the DSP and for the sentiment panel, and Pearl Basic Jewels for embellishment. The ribbon is Old Olive/ Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Ribbon – a pretty double-sided one. Both use the sentiment from Woven Heirlooms stamp set.

And here are the insides of each.

The card on the left shows Soft Sea Foam card stock for the backing of the Very Vanilla card stock. It was stamped with leaves from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam ink. The card on the right is stamped in Pretty Peacock ink on Basic White card stock and uses the Woven Heirlooms stamp set.

Voila – four sympathy cards created in a flash. Here they are with the envelopes.

Stampin’ Up! Memories & More Card Pack

Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack is bright, beautiful and full of flowers. AND they are super fun to create – sympathy cards/ birthday cards & more. I did just the first two with this group and am super happy with how they turned out. I did a bit of embellishing – who can resist – but not much. I’m going to share one at a time & tell the additions for that card, then move on to the next. Here’s the first card.

Obviously this is a sympathy card… I added Seaside Spray card stock behind the floral pattern and behind the sentiment panel as well. The sentiment on the card front is from Touched My Heart stamp set. The sentiment is on dimensionals and it has 5 Pearl Basic Jewels added. For the inside I used Flowers For Every Season 6×6 DSP, Basic White card stock and a single sticker from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack.

Additions for this set are the Bumblebee Ribbon, Cinnamon Cider card stock and ink, and stickers from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card & Envelope pack for the card front & the inside as well.

To this card I used So Saffron card stock for each of the background papers. The sentiment panel uses the stamp set Peaceful Moments stamp set. Additions were Wink of Stella to the yellow flowers and fun stickers from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack. The sentiment panel is on dimensionals.

This fourth card uses Magenta Madness ribbon (2020-2022 In Color Ribbon), Basic White card stock behind the floral image. For the inside, stickers from the card pack were added to the Basic White panel which was adhered to another piece of Flowers For Every Season 6×6 DSP.

Opal Rounds were used as additional embellishments for the card front and Flirty Flamingo card stock was used as background papers on both the front & inside of the card. A single sticker was added to the Basic White panel on the inside.

These are lovely cards with a finished size larger than what we are used to: 4 1/4 x 6 1/4. The layers and embellishments make them very appropriate for a beginner to intermediate stamper. Below is a product list of items used in today’s project. They come from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog as well as the Jan-Jun Mini Catalog ~ and those products are available now for purchase. You will find them in the product list below. As a reminder… I’ve made it easy for you to simply ‘add all to cart’.

Stampin’ Up! Kangaroo & Easter

It’s Saturday and Spring is in the air… the crocus and snow drops, daffodils & jonquils – oh yes… Love, love Spring. And today’s card says Spring all over it. The Kangaroo & Co bundle is new to me and I just had to use it.

Kangaroo Easter – #1

Is that ‘roo face cute or what?! Let’s talk through how to make this card, shall we?

Preparation:

  • Purple Posy 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Basic White 4 x 5 1/4 (2) + about 3 1/2 x 5 for dies + scrap for banner
  • 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP in Purple Posy 3 1/2 x 5
  • Highland Heather scraps 3/4 x 1 1/2 (3) + scrap for banner

How to:

  • Adhere the 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP panel to the Basic White panel then to the card base, all with liquid glue.
  • Stamp the Kangaroo from Kangaroo & Co in Smoky Slate on the Basic White strip. Also stamp the flower bouquet in Memento Black ink on the same strip.
  • Color the Kangaroo with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends, the ears & nose with Dark Petal Pink.
  • Color the bouquet with Stampin’ Blends: Dark Pool Party for the leaves, Daffodil Delight and Highland Heather for the flowers. Die cut both.
  • Adhere the three Highland Heather strips as shown, using liquid glue.
  • Put dimensionals on the Kangaroo and adhere as shown.
  • The ‘roo has a pouch. I put a single dimensional on the bouquet and slipped an edge into the pouch.
  • Add a bow form the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhere with a glue dot.
  • Stamp the sentiment from Kangaroo & Co stamp set with Smoky slate ink on a 3/4 wide strip. Trim one end with the Banners Pick a Punch.
  • Adhere to a 1″ Highland Heather scrap that was trimmed with the same Banners Pick a Punch. This strip has the scalloped edge as it was a leftover from a scalloped die cut from a previous project :). Adhere these two to the card front, slipping them slightly under the die cut Kangaroo.
  • Adhere 3 Iridescent Pearls to the banner and the card front is complete.
Kangaroo Easter – #2
  • The inside was super fast – I used my Blending Brush to add a bit of Highland Heather ‘glow’ to a Basic White panel.
  • Stamp the sentiment from A Wish for Everything stamp set using Highland Heather ink.
  • Adhere the panel to the inside of the card and voila…
Kangaroo Easter – #3

The envelope was stamped with the cute envelope from the Kangaroo & Co stamp set with Highland Heather ink. I colored the heart using a Highland Heather marker. The flap got more 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP in Purple Posy and this card is ready for Easter!

Stampin’ Up! Dandy Garden Double Fold

Helloooo. Did you have fun shopping with Stampin’ Up! during FREE SHIPPING day? I certainly did :O) Today’s card is all about Spring – and I love the color combination. It uses items from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack & other items as well. Shall we take a peek? Just so ya know, I haven’t done this fold before. It wasn’t tricky or anything – and may be called something else. All right – let’s take a look.

Dandy Garden Double Fold – #1

You can see why I called it a double fold – there are two parts to it. As I mentioned earlier, I used several elements from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack… the circle on which I stamped on the front, the dragonfly, and the starburst yellow paper. The Vellum dragonflies were from a project some time ago – leftovers and saved in the stamp case.

The basic needs:

  • Seaside Spray card base 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Basic White card stock 4 x 5 1/4 (2)
  • Bumblebee card stock 3 1/4 x 4 1/4
  • 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP 3 1/2″ square cut in half on the diagonal and scored on the long side at 1/2″

The how to:

  • Stamp a Basic White panel with Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Memento Black ink. Stamp the sentiment from the Best Year stamp set – also in Memento Black ink. Lightly color the flowers with Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. Color the leaves with Just Jade Stampin’ Blends. Adhere three Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins .
  • Fold under the scored edge on the 6×6 DSP triangle. Adhere to the top & bottom of the Basic White panel with liquid glue. Trim the ends that overlap.
  • Adhere the starburst panel (from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack) to Bumblebee card stock with liquid glue. Adhere this to the triangle – at the top only.
  • Stamp the circle (from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack) using the Garden Wishes stamp set and Memento Black ink. Color with Stampin’ Blends: Just Jade for the leaves & stems; Mango Melody for the flowers. Put dimensionals on the back of the circle and adhere to the card front, centering. Adhere the laser-cut dragonfly (yep – from the card pack!) with liquid glue along the body. Attache the small vellum dragonflies with a single mini dimensional for each.
  • Adhere this entire panel to the Seaside Spray card base on the front. This completes the first portion of the card.
Dandy Garden Double Fold – #2

The inside:

  • Stamp the sentiment on a Basic White panel in Memento Black ink.
  • Adhere a 1/2 x 4 strip of the 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP near the bottom.
  • Adhere this panel to the inside of the card and voila!
Dandy Garden Double Fold – #3

For the envelope:

  • Adhere a sweet bumblebee sticker from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack to the front of the envelope.
  • Adhere a panel of 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP to the envelope flap, trim and the card is DONE!
Dandy Garden Double Fold – #4

Stampin’ Up! Bookmarks for Class

Do you like to read? I DO… and sometimes have more than one book going at a time. I say this ‘cuz bookmarks are incredibly important to have πŸ™‚ I have a class today – it’s a small group but I like to give them something now & then. It’s inspirational for them and everyone likes a gift. So here they are… all using the, what else, Butterfly Brilliance Bundle. It is available now and will be in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. I have also used the Dragonfly Garden stamp set for the flower bouquet and sentiment.

These were such a fun, quick project and inspired by my upline Mary Deatherage as part of our zoom Team Meeting on Sunday. Each bookmark uses the very same components: Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP, Brilliant Wings Dies to die cut the butterflies from the DSP, Vellum for the detail die from the same die set and finally Dragonfly Garden stamp set for the beautiful stamped bundle of wild flowers and the sentiment. The final element is the use of the Tag Topper Punch. What’s different is the ribbon, markers for coloring and ink used.

Inks, coloring and ribbons coordinate with each butterfly die cut. The two bookmarks on the left were stamped in ‘stamped off’ Basic Gray ink. Ribbons used were Terracotta Tile from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack and Magenta Madness, a 20-22 In Color Ribbon. I used Calypso Coral markers to lightly color the top flowers and Calypso Coral ink for the sentiment from Dragonfly Garden stamp set for the bookmark on the far left. With the Magenta Madness ribbon, I used the same color markers and ink for the sentiment.

The two bookmarks on the right were stamped with ‘stamped off’ Just Jade ink for the wild flowers. Misty Moonlight Ribbon and ink for the sentiment but the flowers were colored with So Saffron marker and a hint of Crushed Curvy for the flower centers. The far right bookmark uses Just Jade for the ribbon and same color of ink for the sentiment. The flowers were colored the same as the prior flowers.

I used the white twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack for tying the ribbons together. I love these bookmarks and hope you do as well. They shout HOPE to me; hope for what is to come in new growth and new beginnings.

Below is a product list of items used in today’s project. They come from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog as well as the 2021 Product Premier Butterfly Brilliance Collection, part of which will be in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog (stamp set & dies)~ and those products are available now for purchase. You will find them in the product list below. As a reminder… 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, or others, 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 – XTK4JNGQ– good Mar 16 – 31. When the order is over $150, you still receive that free gift from me, but SU! has Stampin’ Rewards that may be used for additional products, so don’t use the host code at that time.

Stampin’ Up! More Butterflies

Butterfly Brilliance shines again! This is such a gorgeous stamp and die bundle and I do have a ‘thing’ about butterflies. Yesterday we had our quarterly Team Meeting and did a bit of stamping as well as business. I chose to use different colors but the layout and idea are the same. Here’s a close-up of the butterfly as I covered it in Wink of Stella after coloring it in Stampin’ Blends and the sparkle doesn’t really show well.

More Butterflies close-up – #1

Can you see the sparkle? Maybe just a bit, eh? Preparation:

  • Card base is Terracotta Tile 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Basic White 4 x 5 1/4 (2), one for inside; enough for butterfly die cut + sentiment banner
  • 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP 3 7/8 x 5 1/8m – Terracotta Tile
  • Crumb Cake 3 3/8 x 5 1/8
  • In Good Taste DSP 3 1/4 x 5 1/8

How to:

  • Stamp the butterfly from Butterfly Brilliance stamp set on a Basic White panel. I used Sahara Sand but would recommend Memento Black ink.
  • Color the butterfly with Stampin’ Blends. I used Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie, Smoky Slate and Color Lifter. Cover with Wink of Stella. Die cut with the Brilliant Wings Dies. Hint: I have cut my butterflies apart and really like that I can use my mini die cut machine for these dies now. Plus they are so much more versatile for me. I have aslo cut the butterfly stamps apart as well 😁
  • Stamp the In Good Taste panel with various butterflies – or just one of therm – in Sahara Sand ink. My ink pad is inky so it shows up a bit darker than I expected, but it’s still subtle enough for me.
  • Adhere this panel to the Crumb Cake piece with liquid glue. Adhere these two pieces to the 2019-2021 In Color panel, again with liquid glue. Finally adhere all this to the Basic White piece. Put dimensionals on the back and adhere to the card front.
  • Stamp your sentiment on Basic White – I did mine in Terracotta Tile ink and it comes from the Happy Thoughts stamp set. Die cut with Tasteful Labels Dies. Add to the card front with dimensionals.
  • Put dimensionals on the die cut butterfly and add to the front.
  • Add three (3) Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins and the card front is complete.
More Butterflies – #2

For the inside of the card… so simple. Stamp butterflies from Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on the remaining Basic White panel. Adhere this to the inside of the card and done, done.

More Butterflies, inside – #3

For the envelope, I used the same butterfly and stamped it on the envelope front, then covered the flap with the remaining piece of the 2019-2020 In Color 6×6 DSP. Here’s repeat of that photo.

More Butterflies – #2

This card is not particularly feminine – intentionally so. It’s going to a male friend of ours who just had unplanned quadruple bypass surgery. Ugh… Cannot imagine his wife not being able to visit during this time of unknown due to the pandemic. But he is to be released from the hospital quite soon – so grateful for that!

Below is a product list of items used in today’s project. They come from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog as well as the 2021 Product Premier Butterfly Brilliance Collection, part of which will be in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog (stamp set & dies)~ and those products are available now for purchase. You will find them in the product list below. As a reminder… 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, or others, 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 QDCUDHDC – good Mar 1 – 15. When the order is over $150, you still receive that free gift from me, but SU! has Stampin’ Rewards that may be used for additional products, so don’t use the host code at that time. If you have questions just let me know.

Thanks for stopping by.

May you have a beautiful day.

Make someone happy sending them a handmade card filled with love.
