Stampin’ Up! W-V Fun Fold w/ Abstract Beauty and Butterflies

Fun Folds are just that – f-u-n to create. And this one is so easy, although it looks complicated, it isn’t. I’m continuing with a theme of sorts, Bugs or Butterflies using the Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 DSP to attract the butterflies. Let’s take a peek…

Brilliant Wings Dies & Abstract Beauty.1

Here you can easily see the W-V fold of the card and I’ve added three of the Brilliant Wings Dies in various places. Cut out of the DSP or vellum or combining the two papers, the butterflies appear almost real. Here’s another photo with the card flat.

Brilliant Wings Dies & Abstract Beauty.2

You may be saying, but there’s no place write… so flip the card over and this is the perfect place for notes.

W-V Fun Fold, back.3

Night of Navy was used for the card base, and Crushed Curry card stock to coordinate with the DSP. In these photos, it almost looks orange! On the butterflies are holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add some glam; Basic White for the sentiments stamped in Night of Navy ink come from Artfully Layered stamp set. I embossed the Crushed Curry card stock using the Hive 3D EF prior to adhering them. Here are a few more photos… and yes, there are two cards, so you will notice the butterflies are cut from other papers in the Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 DSP pack and the envelope flaps are other papers in the pack.

This is a really fun card to make ~ let me see if I can give you some pointers for putting it together. Card cuts are listed below. One of the important parts is making certain that sentiment on the back panel is centered. I tend to use my grid paper to line things up just right.

Adhere the floral panel and the embossed pieces in the appropriate places using the photos above as your guide. Adhere the sentiment panels (the Night of Navy square) to the far right panel, again using your grid paper to make certain it is centered. The reason for this is… the V panel when the card is closed, covers this completely, so you want it just right. :O)

Adhering the V panel before decorating the card is next: lay the V panel on top of the sentiment panel, centering it. No glue at this point! Now close that inner W to see where it will ‘sit’ on the W (you are adhering the V to the fold that is closest to the flat portion of the card!); then lift the W, add a bit of glue to the V on the portion that will be adhered to the card and close that first W on the V. Once that dries sufficiently, close the card completely and fold the embossed portion of the V onto the card front panel (the floral piece). Note where that will ‘sit’, open the card and add liquid glue to that portion of the V, close the card again and adhere. Bingo! Now decorate as desired. YAY!!! You did it 😏

Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 DSP is not carrying over to the new cattie. Nor are the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Brilliant Wings Dies IS carrying over, just not in the bundle with the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set. Night of Navy & Crushed Curry card stocks ARE in the new cattie, as are Basic White products. Do share with me what you create with this wonderful fun fold :O).

Stampin’ Up! Abstract Beauty Support

Hi Everyone! TGIF!!! Whew – long, busy week – how about you? And here it is almost weekend and well, still full plate. Not complaining, just sayin’… Today’s card is not my usual style, it’s a bit on the modern side. The thing is – I really like this paper :O). It’s called Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 DSP. This sort of ‘brush stroke’ look is modern and fun. The butterfly definitely softens the look.

Abstract Beauty Support.1

Several layers here, but that is what makes it fun – it keeps the eye moving.

  • Card base is Thick Basic White 8 1/2 x 5 12 scored at 4 1/4
  • Abstract Beauty background layer is 4 x 5 3/8 adhered to the card base
  • The next panel is also Abstract Beauty 3 x 3 1/2 and adhered.
  • The stripe layer is yet another panel of Abstract Beauty 1 1/2 x 5 and adhered directly
  • On a 5/8″ strip of Basic White, stamp the sentiment in Just Jade ink. The sentiment comes from Through It Together stamp set. I punched the one end with the Tailored Tag Punch. This was attached with dimensionals.
  • Die cut a Vellum circle with the Layering Circles Dies.
  • Adhere the butterfly about in the center of the circle with liquid glue just along the body.
    • The butterfly was created by using a Blending Brush and Balmy Blue, Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz inks on a Basic White piece, then die cutting with the Brilliant Wings Dies.
  • Add dimensionals to the Vellum circle but just along the body of the butterfly. The reason is the dimensionals will show if added anywhere else and here they are hidden but still give dimension to the piece.
  • Add several Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the circle, butterfly and on the sentiment panel. Done!
Abstract Beauty Support, inside

For the inside I added a scrap of the background Abstract Beauty DSP with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment in Pumpkin Pie ink – from the Through It Together stamp set. And the final touch here – two of the adorable and perfect Brushed Brass Butterflies. The Basic White panel was adhered to the inside of the card and voila ~ the card is complete.

Abstract Beauty Support

The envelope got another bit of the same Abstract Beauty 4×6 DSP to the flap.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello one and all! Welcome to the talented Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! It’s always fun to meet a sketch challenge and I turned the sketch to make this card.

Brilliant Wings Die.1

And here’s our sketch…

I started with this beautiful butterfly… using a Blending Brush and various inks (Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Pear Pizzazz) I colored a Basic White piece then die cut the butterfly (Brilliant Wings Dies) from that panel and again from Vellum. I then layered those butterflies together with Stampin’ Seal. With a panel of Basic White 3 x 5 1/2 and using my Stamparatus to make certain the sentiment was straight and centered and placing the butterfly in the approximate position but not adhering it, I stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point ink (after removing the butterfly!). That sentiment comes from the Through It Together stamp set. I then added the butterfly with liquid glue. Notice I left the wings and the antennae free :O)

The next step was the create the card base itself: Thick Basic White cut to 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2. Add strips of Coastal Cabana about 1/4″ from each edge, then another strip of Pacific Point. Add the butterfly panel and the final touch are the lovely Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels. (These can be purchased as part of the Waves Collection right now ~ and only available while supplies last., They will NOT be in the 2022 – 2023 Annual Catalog.) As you can see there are several shades of jewels and I mixed them up because of the butterfly.

Brilliant Wings Dies.2

The envelope got special treatment with a piece of Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 DSP adhered to the flap and trimmed to fit. I stamped the butterfly right on the DSP using the Butterfly Brilliance stamp. First I inked with Coastal Cabana, then picked up the Pacific Point and inked just the lower wings. You could easily do this with a sponge dauber but I was lazy and just used the ink pad.

Brillance Wings Dies.3

After cleaning the stamp I repeated the process of inking the butterfly with Coastal Cabana then tapping the lower wings with Pacific Point. and stamped the front of the envelope.

Brilliance Wings Dies.4

This card has a lot of white space and I’m not used to making cards like this, but I like it ~ it’s simple and elegant. For all the products used in today’s card and more information about current happenings in Stampin’ Up!, scroll down below the names :O)

Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday! Today is the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop and the challenge is flowers – a real spring thing, right? And here’s my card…

Pansy Patch.1

This is the right time of year for pansies isn’t it… when it’s still a bit cool and not wicked hot that makes everything melt. I began by embossing with the Greenery folder and a Basic White panel. This is a narrow embossing folder and therefore with a wider sheet of card stock it’s important to match the embossed portion when running it through again. I think you can see that the embossing matches perfectly – yay! That panel was adhered directly to the Thick Basic White card base.

Next I took the beautiful Pansy Petals 12 x 12 DSP and cut three panels 1 x 4 1/4. These were adhered with liquid glue to an Evening Evergreen panel just slightly larger than the three when put side by side with just a bit of space in between (3 1/4 x 4 3/8). I wrapped that with the the beautiful (and springy) Grossgrain Ribbon in Highland Heather and tied a knot, securing it with a glue dot.

Stamp the more solid pansy in Pale Papaya ink, stamping off once. Stamp the shading stamp in full strength Pale Papaya. Stamp the inner in Blushing Bride and color the center with Daffodil Delight. That doesn’t really show as I ended up adding a jewel in the center :O). Die cut with the Pansy Dies; put dimensionals on the back and attach over the ribbon. Now die cut the two leaf pieces with Soft Succulent card stock and Evening Evergreen, putting them together with liquid glue. Slip this leaf behind the pansy adhering with liquid glue. Add the Holiday Gems as centers for the two pansies as shown – and the card front is done!

Pansy Patch, inside

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered that to an Evening Evergreen piece slightly larger and those two were attached to the inside of the card. I added three more of the Holiday Basic Jewels and the card was complete.

On the envelope front I stamped the smaller pansy from the Pansy Patch stamp set: background is Pale Papaya stamped off once; shading is Pale Papaya full strength; center shading is Calypso coral and the very center is Daffodil Delight. The envelope back got more of the Pansy Petals 12 x 12 DSP. LOVE this card ~ so friendly and fresh… and versatile!

Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration

Today’s card uses mostly Waves of the Ocean 12 x 12 DSP ~ it’s stunning! Some of the prettiest paper ever.

Waves of the Ocean DSP is adhered to a layer of Pacific Point then directly to the Basic White card base. A coordinating layer of Waves of the Ocean DSP was adhered to Calypso Coral card stock, put on dimensionals & attached to the card front. Stamp the pelican on a Basic White panel in Crumb Cake ink, then with a dauber add a bit more to specific areas of the stamp to add more dimension. It’s better if using a Stamparatus to do this as it can be stamped multiple times and be in the right spot :O) Die cut the pelican using the Waves Dies, then add with dimensionals. Stamp the sentiment in Pacific Point ink on a Basic White piece and die cut with a Waves Dies banner die. I then took a length of the same DSP and clipped to make banner points, folded it back on itself and slipped it through each end of the banner and adhering it together. This was done on both ends of the banner. I put dimensionals on the left end of the banner and liquid glue on the other and adhered it over the bottom of the pelican. I added three of the Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels and the card front was done :O)

For the inside I again stamped the pelican with Crumb Cake ink on a panel of Basic White, using a sponge dauber to add more Crumb Cake in specific areas. I then took a ruler and a Balmy Blue Marker to create the fun lines around the pelican. I also used a Pacific Point Marker for more color. I adhered the panel to a Pacific Point piece and then into the card inside.

For the envelope I used the Stamparatus for this very large wave stamp and Pacific point ink to stamp the wave. Notice how the wave disappears off the bottom edge – I did this intentionally! I used a Blending Brush and a bit of Balmy Blue ink to color in the wave. It doesn’t show much in this photo, but it’s very cool!! And the card/ envelope were done!

Now let me tell you a bit about this stunning DSP AND the Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels ~ they are only available while supplies last. The Waves of Inspiration stamp set and coordinating Waves Dies will be available in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, but not the DSP or the jewels. So you know, get them now!

Stampin’ Up! Heart & Home Part 2

Good morning! I’ve created another super easy card for you using the Heart & Home Memories & More Card Pack + Cards & Envelopes. I DID add some die cutting elements to the card using the Pierced Bloom Dies. Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 Specialty DSP is also a part of the mini card front. Let’s take a look…

Heart & Home Part 2.1

The large card base is from the Heart & Home Mem’ries & More Cards & Envelopes, as is the wood grain piece :O) – so this is two cards in one. And the lovely die cuts add a nice element of dimension and pull in the colors of the flowers in the Abstract Beauty SDSP. The flower & flower center were die cut from Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper that I had created earlier. You can see that post here. Below is the colored panel. The leaf die cut is from Just Jade card stock. The background panel for the SDSP is Crushed Curry.

Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper

The inside of the front card is two of the stickers from the Heart & Home Mem’ries & More Card Pack.

Heart & Home Part 2, front inside

And the inside of the card… another panel of the Heart & Home Mem’ries & More Card Pack trimmed down just a bit & adhered to a slightly larger panel of Crushed Curry, then attached to the card base.

Heart & Home Part 2, inside

The envelope got another couple of die cuts using the Pierced Bloom Dies plus one of the stickers from Heart & Home Mem’ries & More Card Pack.

Heart & Home Part 2

As yesterdays card (you can see that here), there is no sentiment added, making this super versatile: thank you, birthday, just a note, hello ~ you name it. I appreciate having versatility in a card and, this will be part of a gift set for someone special.

Products to make this card are listed below so feel free to order away :O) If you do not have a demonstrator and need an Annual Catalog please reach out to me – happy to send one to you.

Stampin’ Up! On the Horizon with Brilliant Wings Dies Sympathy

It’s Monday the 21st & celebrating President’s Day! WooHoo! It’s a 3-day weekend so folks can travel someplace fun for a couple of days. No mail delivery, no school, etc. Quiet day, maybe.

My last post was a sympathy card ‘cuz one of our church staff members passed away unexpectedly. Today’s card is for a man on staff who worked closely with the deceased. While it doesn’t look masculine, it is… The blues and other coloring are subtle & gentle – offering solace. Here it is…

On the Horizon w/ Brilliant Wings Dies Sympatghy.1

Using Granny Apple Green, Misty Moonlight & Pacific Point inks and a Blending Brush, I colored a piece of Thick Basic White card stock, overlapping colors as I liked. Then I used the Brilliant Wings Dies to cut several butterflies. Let me say here, that I have two sets of these dies… one cut apart & one left as it came – whole. For this project I used the cut apart dies so I could place them in strategic places on the inked card stock. 🙂 The next step was to run a panel of Basic White through the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. I love the deepness of embossing this creates. I adhered this with liquid glue directly to the Misty Moonlight card base. Next I stamped the woodgrain ‘log’ with Basic Gray ink then die cut it with the Horizon Dies. I stamped the sentiment using the On the Horizon stamp set and Pacific Point ink on the ‘log’. This I put on dimensionals and adhered to the card front, leaving room for the butterfly. The butterfly has dimensionals only under the body. I added a Misty Moonlight/ Silver bow from the Flowers for Every Season pack with a glue dot. This is such a great combination of ribbons! Then I added 3 Adhesive-Backed Hexagons to the ‘log’ and the card front was complete.

On the Horizon w/ Brilliant Wings Dies Sympathy. inside

On the inside I stamped the silhouette of a leaf pattern using the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set in Granny Apple Green on a panel of Basic White card stock. I stamped the sentiment using the Inspired Thoughts stamp set (one of my favs!) in Misty Moonlight ink. This panel was adhered direcvtly to the inside of the card – and done!

On the horizon w/ Brilliant Wings Dies Sympathy.3

For the envelope, I used the ‘silhouette’ of two butterflies that I had die cut from the Basic White piece, then used the Blending Brush, Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point inks to color it. L-O-V-E!

Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin Alternatives, Jan ’22

Happy Monday! New week, new day, new start to whatever. I like to think of it as a new beginning each day, a start-over. Gratitude, praise, thanks, then go… Howe do you like to start your day ~ besides with a cup of coffee or tea?

My Paper Pumpkin arrived the other day and since our grandkids are coming this weekend (it’s my birthday weekend:) I thought, what better time than now to put these adorable cards together & give them to our “Grands” to share with their classmates or teachers. So I set to work. I limited myself to additional Stampin’ Up! products as I needed to keep these simple. I chose Sweet Talk 12 x 12 DSP, Daffodil Afternoon 12 x 12 DSP and Gold Foil Sheets for decorative papers; the Heart Punch and the Scalloped Heart punch, Basic White, Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink card stocks + all the PP kit ingredients. So – lots of pictures in this post…

And a couple of photos of the inside of the alternative cards…

Additional inks used were Blushing Bride & Flirty Flamingo + the ink in the kit, Gray Granite. 17 cards in all ~ that’s a lot of cards with minimum product added to the Paper Pumpkin kit. Such a good deal – just sayin’. And these kits come monthly with each one different from the last. Some make cards, some are boxes or treats, it varies, which is kinda fun. This way a person doesn’t get bored :O) Now is a good time to join Paper Pumpkin too, ‘cuz prices increase just a bit as of Mar 1, 2022. And if you get the entire year subscription, that becomes a fixed price before Mar 1… Get your Paper Pumpkin, click here.
