Stampin’ Up! Painted Christmas DSP Shows Off

WOOHOO! The Jul-Dec 2021 Catalog is L-I-V-E! Yay… Welcome. Today I’m sharing a card using the Painted Christmas DSP that is now available for purchase. It’s beautiful.

Painted C’mas DSP Shows Off.1

I’ve used a rather non-traditional color for the card base – Pear Pizzazz. It coordinates so well with this particular sheet of DSP. I’ve used the Christmas Season stamp set to stamp on the die cut sentiment banner in Soft Succulent 2nd generation. I used the Seasonal Labels Dies to create the banner. And finally, I used the Christmas to Remember stamp set to stamp the sentiment in Evening Evergreen. I set this aside while I put the card together.

  • Pear Pizzazz for the card base
  • Painted Christmas DSP adhered to Evening Evergreen card stock. Dimensionals on the back and adhered to the card base
  • Cut a length of Reversible Ribbon and adhere with glue dots.
  • Put dimensionals on the back of the sentiment banner and adhere over the ribbon
  • Add three Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front is complete.

For the inside I used a couple of the stamps in the Christmas Season stamp set to create a beautiful ‘header’. I used Soft Succulent 2nd for the larger leaf. I then stamped the pine needles in Evening Evergreen ink 2nd & 3rd generation. Of course, these were stamped on Basic White card stock. I adhered this to a panel of Evening Evergreen, then into the inside of the card.

For the envelope I added more of the same beautiful DSP to the envelope flap, then stamped the pine stamp from Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen. And – done. A quick card that is just beautiful. These stamps and dies may be found on pages 16-17 of the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog.

Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Thinking of You

Hello! How’s your Saturday? It’s beautiful here on the East Coast… and a good day for some outdoor activities 🙂 While it is still full swing summer here, I chose to make this easy, fun, fall card. It uses the stunning Stitched leaves Dies that emboss and die cut all in one movement. This is a carry-over item into the 2021 Annual Catalog that coordinates with the Love of Leaves stamp set, but for this card I have used some new products available in the to the general public from the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog. Aug 3 is that big date!

Love of Leaves & Stitched Leaves Dies.1

What are the new products? The awesomely sparkly Be Dazzling 6×6 DSP is one of the new items on this card; the other is the Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots in gold. The white bow is made by pulling apart a length of the Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack and attaching it with a glue dot. This is a new item in the 2021 Annual Catalog.

Ok, so you see the colors: Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider and the Be Dazzling 6×6 DSP, layered on a piece of Early Espresso card stock (which was added to the card base with dimensionals). The card base is Very Vanilla that has been run through the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. The large leaf was adhered just in the center with liquid glue. The Cinnamon Cider leaf got dimensionals and was placed over the large leaf. The Cherry Cobbler leaf was adhered with liquid glue as well. The inspiration for this card came from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge as seen in the sketch below. What do you think? Does it look like the sketch?

Each of the leaves has been die cut with the Stitched Leaves Dies, two of them have that wonderful stitching that looks like veins in the leaves. I REALLY like these! Of course I like the large leaf too, but I didn’t think the veins would show on that sparkly DSP. What else can I tell you about this – oh, the long Cinnamon Cider leaf was cut from the 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP.

Let’s take peek at the inside of the card.

Stitched Leaves Dies.2

I die cut this small leaf from Cherry Cobbler card stock scrap and once I put the card front together, here was this fun scrap. I decided to add it to the inside of the card with liquid glue. It brings a fun element to the card. I stamped the sentiment from the Loves of Leaves stamp set with Cinnamon Cider ink. All this was done on a Very Vanilla panel which was added to the inside of the card.

Love of Leaves & Stitched Leaves Dies.3

The leaf stamps in the Love of Leaves stamp set are distinctive, which means they don’t make a solid image. The large leaf in this set was stamped in 2nd & 3rd generation with Cinnamon Cider ink on the front and the flap.

It seems strange to make a fall kind of card at this time of year, but that’s what seem to come together – and I like it. It’s just that it won’t get used for a while!

Card cuts will be listed at the bottom of this post. If you do not have a demonstrator and need a Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog, please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. And when I send it, there will be a Sale-a-bration catalog in with it! That means more FREE items to choose from with every order of $50, or $100 or multiples of that.

Stampin’ Up! Diagonal Gatefold Envelope

Hi there! It’s Wednesday the 28th – just days away from the END of the 15% off select DSP sale (Aug 2) and the LAUNCH of the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog (Aug 3) & Sale-a-bration catalogs (Aug 3 – Sep 30). WhooHoo! Shall we call this WooHoo Wednesday? Silliness, right? OK … today’s project is the envelope for a Diagonal Gatefold card. The card information was shared in yesterday’s post which you may see here. The envelope is created with one of the paper packs avail in the 2021- 2022 Annual Catalog called Pattern Party DSP. It is available when you make a purchase of $300 or more. The pack is wonderful – black & white on one side and colorful on the other. Below is the finished envelope for a look see. The “address” label on the front shows the other side of this particular piece.

Diagonal Gatefold Envelope.1

The how to…

  • Cut the DSP 8 1/2 x 12: score on the LONG side 3/4, 7 3/4; score on the SHORT side 7/8, 6 3/4
  • Burnish all score lines and trim – see photo for reference
Diagonal Gatefold Envelope.2
  • Use the Detailed Trio Punch to round the edges of the flap
  • Add Tear n Tape to the outside pieces just long enough for the fold up of the bottom.
  • Add Tear n Tape to the flap as well
Diagonal Gatefold Envelope.3
  • Fold up bottom and adhere. You can clearly see that I ran the Tear n Tape too long on the sides. I simply rolled it down once the covering was removed and it worked perfectly.
  • Using the Seasonal Labels Dies to cut a panel for the front to use as an address label. I used some of the same Pattern Party DSP for the label. The seasonal Labels Dies will be available in the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog beginning Aug 3. It is part of the Christmas Season Bundle.

Love how this envelope turned out – and so glad I had the Pattern Party DSP pack to use for it!

Stampin’ Up! Diagonal Gate Fold for Christmas

It’s Tuesday – shall we call it Terrific Tuesday? I sorta like that 🙂 Todays card is just that – terrific. This is a fun fold that is not new, but since I never made one, well, it was time. I’ve used the Tidings of Christmas 6×6 DSP and combined it with the Evergreen Elegance bundle which may be found in the Annual Catalog, page 91. This is such a fun and easy card to make.

Diagonal Gatefold C’mas.1

How to make…do all your scoring first, then cut your papers and adhere.

Scoring

  • begin with your card base 5 1/2 x 8 1/4, scored on the long side at 2 3/4 & 5 1/2. (mine is Cherry Cobbler)
  • score the left panel from the upper left corner to the 1st score line on the diagonal
  • score the right panel from the upper left corner of the 2nd score line to the bottom right corner
  • burnish the score lines so they are mountain, valley, valley, mountain

Cutting your papers

  • cut each card stock layer 2 5/8 x 5 3/8 (there will be 4, three in Soft Succulent, 1 in Basic White
  • cut TWO of the Soft Succulent layers on the diagonal from the upper left corner to the lower right corner (the remaining piece will be the center panel)
  • cut the Basic White panel from the upper right corner to the lower left corner
  • cut a Basic White panel for the card center 2 1/2 x 5 1/4
  • cut DSP layers 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 (I cut three coordinating panels)
  • cut TWO DSP layers on the diagonal from the upper left corner to the lower right corner
  • cut ONE DSP layer from the upper right corner to the lower left corner (this is my Soft Succulent DSP layer), there will be one of these left over

TIP: When cutting your DSP layers, if there is a definite direction to the design, make certain you are cutting it in the proper direction. 🙂

Diagonal Gatefold C’mas.2

Next steps

  • Stamp the center Basic White panel and add decoration
    • The sentiment is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink using the Evergreen Elegance stamp set
    • The trees at the bottom are punched using the Evergreen Border Punch, Soft Succulent card stock and Evening Evergreen card stock and adhered to the panel with liquid glue
    • Adhere this panel to the center of the card
  • Stamp the diagonally trimmed Basic White panel using Evening Evergreen ink and the smallest tree from the Evergreen Elegance stamp set: first full strength, then the two side trees without re-inking
  • Adhere this Basic White panel as shown in photo
Diagonal Gatefold C’mas.3

You are nearly done…

  • Adhere the trimmed panels with liquid glue: layers are card stock then DSP!
  • Stamp the sentiment for the front banner in Cherry Cobbler ink using the Evergreen Elegance stamp set – on a Basic White strip
  • Cut the banner with this beautiful die using the Seasonal Labels Dies (this is in the Jul-Dec Mini Catalog on page 17 and is part of the Christmas Season bundle)
  • Adhere the die cut sentiment banner to a piece of Soft Succulent card stock 1 1/8 x 4 1/4
  • Close the card and adhere the banner with dimensionals on the left side only
  • Add Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the banner and to the tree – voila! Beautiful, right?
Diagonal Gatefold C’mas.4

This card will need a handmade envelope as the finished size is 5 1/2 x 6. I will include directions for the envelope in tomorrow’s post. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Birthday w/ In Good Taste DSP Fun Fold

Happy Monday and all that… hope you enjoyed your weekend. We had spectacular weather, so good for working outside some. Today – well, hot and humid once more so working inside will be more productive I’m thinkin’.

Today’s card is super easy, a bit of a fun fold, perfect for using some In Good Taste DSP – which is on SALE for 15% off (more details below).

B’day w/ In Good Taste DSP.1

Both of the DSP on this card come from In Good Taste DSP pack and they look great together. One of the things about this card is it can so easily be a masculine card – or not. I appreciate its versatility. This smaller strip of DSP looks as though it has texture, but doesn’t. It also opens to the inside of the card. In other words, The background DSP is a flat surface :O). Here’s how to do this…

  • Night of Navy card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
  • In Good Taste DSP layer is 4 x 5 1/4
  • Basic White panel 2 1/2 x 10 1/2, with DSP layer (2 1/2 x 5 1/4) adhered to the front of it
  • Basic White panel adhered to card base
  • Add Just Jade strip (1/4 x 5 1/4) left of panel
  • Create sentiment strip
    • stamp sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a Basic White strip (1/2 x 3 1/2); angle end.
    • add BW strip to Night of Navy (5/8 x 3 3/4) with liquid glue; angle end
    • add Flowers for Every Season Ribbon in Just Jade to the sentiment strip w/ Seal+
    • put dimensionals on the back of the panel and add to card panel
    • add three Playing with Resin Dots in Just Jade to the left of the sentiment
B’day w/ In Good Taste DSP.2

For the inside… stamp the sentiment in Just Jade ink using the Pansy Patch stamp set again. Add a strip of the In Good Taste DSP to the bottom of the panel – and voila! This card is complete.

B’day In Good Taste DSP.3

For the envelope i did some fussy cutting of the In Good Taste DSP to create a fun edge and adhered it to the env envelope flap… done.done.done.

I like how easy this card was to make and how fun to have a different width for the additional panel. If you wanted, you could easily add a Basic White panel (4 x 5 1/4) to the back of the card to have more writing space. Remember this DSP is currently 15% off – see more info below.

Remember that Aug 3 is the start of the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog.

July–December 2021 Mini Catalogue

During a portion of the mini catalog, there are also Sale-a-bration opportunities. What that means is when you purchase $50 or $100 worth of products, SU! is offering FREE product in the way of stamps, paper and even a die that are only offered during this time frame: Aug 3 – Sep 30. In other words, purchasing any SU! product during the time of Sale-a-bration will get you FREE product! And remember – you also get an item of choice valued at $10 from me when your purchase is $50 plus (before tax & shipping)

Below is some information about a Sales Tax Holiday for particular states – this is the perfect time to purchase DSP and then in August use that same opportunity to order from me in the new Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog 😁

US SCHOOL SUPPLY SALES TAX HOLIDAY

Eleven states will be offering a sales tax holiday for school supplies during the months of July or August. Products that are eligible according to the statute include “items normally used by students in a standard classroom for educational purposes.” To see the names of participating states, products exempted from tax, and sales tax holiday dates, click here.

Please note that you must place your order with Stampin’ Up! during the tax holiday period in order to receive these items tax-free (which is midnight on the first day to midnight on the last day of the tax holiday). Also, keep in mind that this is a state sales tax holiday; the state statute may not apply to county, city, and special jurisdiction taxes.

If you have customers who live in states who benefit from the sales tax holiday (yay!), be sure to give them a call and let them know.

Note: Georgia, Louisiana, and Wisconsin have suspended the sales tax holiday for this year.

Thanks for stopping by. May you have a beautiful day. Inspire. Create. Share. Nothing beats a handmade card!

Stampin’ Up! Masculine Birthday

Today’s card is oh so masculine. I’m loving the layers and the colors – and the Designer Series Paper. In Good taste DSP is part of the 15% off Designer Series Paper Sale through Aug 2. If you don’t have this package of papers, now is the perfect time to get it. Let’s look at the card.

Masculine Birthday.1

The Biggest Wish stamp set was used for the sentiment on the front of the card: the happy was stamped in Cherry Cobbler while the BIRTHDAY was stamped in Early Espresso – on a Basic White panel.This was layered on Cherry Cobbler card stock slightly larger. But we should start at the beginning…

  • Thick Basic White card base 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Cover the card front with a panel of the In Good Taste DSP 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, adhering with liquid glue
  • Layer another piece of In Good Taste DSP (4 1/4 x 3 3/4) with Cherry Cobbler ( 4 14 x 4)
  • Adhere this to the card front, centered.
  • Layer a vertical strip of Early Espresso 1 3/8 x 5 1/2, adhering with liquid glue.
  • Add the sentiment layer with dimensionals (Basic White panel is 2 3/4 x 2 and the Cherry Cobbler panel is 3 x 2 1/4)
  • Add three Opal Rounds – and the card front is done!
  • Stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink on a Basic White panel (4 x 5 1/4). The sentiment comes from the Hey birthday Chick stamp set.
  • Adhere a Cherry Cobbler “frame” 3 /3/4 x 5. (This was in my stash)
  • Die cut the number 40 (or some other number) in Cherry Cobbler and in scraps of In Good Taste. Adhere together with tiny dots of liquid glue. Adhere under the sentiment. Having the number front & center is the perfect touch for this card. I took a picture before the numbers were added and you can see how it’s rather plain, but with the numbers – well, they make it ‘pop’. The numbers were created using the Playful Alphabet Dies. Do you notice how having the two layers of numbers creates a shadow effect?
Masculine Birthday.4

I added coordinating DSP from In Good Taste DSP pack to the envelope flap. I stamped the balloons in Cherry Cobbler ink – from the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set – and voila! The card is complete. My friend is picking up the card this morning.

Stampin’ Up Hello with Artistically Inked

Today’s card uses – as the title suggests – the Artistically Inked bundle and the beautiful Stitched Greenery Dies. I’ll be honest, I didn’t think I would like the Stitched Greenery Dies – but I DO!!!. It leaves this beautiful imprint that is delicate and well, just beautiful. The card is pretty simple with a couple of layers for added charm & depth. This die is in the NEW July-December Min Catalog that will be available to customers Aug 3. More about that later in this post…

.1Hello w/ Artistically Inked

We start off with a card base of So Saffron card stock and cover the front with Regals 6×6 DSP in Crushed Curry. We then run a panel of Basic White through the Cut & Emboss machine using the Stitched Greenery Dies and cut it down to the size I wanted. I adhered this to another Basic White panel that was slightly larger, for strength. Stamp the ‘hello’ from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Memento Black ink and fussy cut. Stamp the single rose in So Saffron ink (stamped off once) on a Basic White scrap and die cut with the Artistic Dies. Stamp the leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink (also stamped off once) on another Basic White scrap and die cut those with the appropriate dies in the Artistic Dies. I played around a bit with how I wanted the leaves then adhered them to the back of the rose with liquid glue I put dimensionals on the back of the rose and on the back of the double leaf and set it aside. I put dimensionals on the back of the hello and set it aside as well. I cut a strip of Basic White and wrapped Gingham Ribbon in Bumblebee around it, using glue dots to secure in place. I added the strip to the left edge of the Basic White panel with liquid glue and put dimensionals on the right end where it extends. I added the hello on the extended end and the rose & leaves to the corner. The upper leaf that extends has a double layer of dimensionals. For that final glam I added three Opal Rounds and the card front was complete. 🙂

Hello w/ Artistically Inked.2

For the inside I stamped the splotch from the Artistically Inked stamp set in stamped off So Saffron ink. I then pulled out the Quiet Meadow stamp set and stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink ~ all this on a Basic White panel. The panel was adhered on the inside of the card with liquid glue and voila! Love this…

Hello w/ Artistically Inked.3

For the envelope, I stamped the flap with the same splotch with Pear Pizzazz ink full strength and that was it. You will notice in this picture there are no Opal Rounds – I added them after I took this photo! So tell me – do you like the card better with or without the Opal Rounds? This is a test 😁. I like them better with – obviously.

I like this card – it’s bright, fresh looking and has dimension and texture and was fun to create. I just let my mind decide what was next. The other thing I did was mix the shades of yellow and it’s hard to tell. The So Saffron rose is softer than it’s Crushed Curry background or the Bumblebee Gingham ribbon, but they do not clash – they compliment. That’s Stampin’ Up!

Stampin’ Up! Blends, Alcohol & Picture This Dies

Happy July 4th! Got big plans? Whatever they are, may you have fun and be safe… Today’s card is made with Stampin’ Blends & Alcohol for the basic background, the Seascape stamp set and Picture this Dies.

Blends, Alcohol & Picture This Dies.1

The background was made on Vellum by adding color sporadically then spritzing with 91% alcohol. When using this alcohol, make certain the area is well vented. It is very strong! I wish I had taken a picture of just the Vellum & inks, before stamping on it. The piece was very special. So, why did I cover it…. who knows… but I do like the end result. Colors used to create the background were Dark Night of Navy & Dark Cajun Craze, both Stampin’ Blends, and as mentioned earlier, spritzed with 91% alcohol. Once dry, I mounted it with liquid glue onto a Basic White card piece.

I die cut a piece of Basic White using the Picture this Dies and used that to show where I needed to stamp. As mentioned earlier I used the Seascape stamp set to create the images: Garden Green ink for the tall lanky seaweed; Calypso Coral for the coral, and Crumb Cake for the fish (they are hard to see and are in the bottom middle window!). I laid this aside to dry – the seaweed took some time as it is a semi solid stamp and the ink pad a bit inky. Once dry I put dimention on the back of the Basic White ‘frame’ and mounted it over the Vellum. This whole panel was then adhered to Misty Moonlight card stock with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment using the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set on a Basic White strip, fussy cut the ends then added it to another Misty Moonlight strip and did the same treatment for the ends. This got dimensionals and was added to the card front. Three Blue Adhesive-backed fems were added and the card front was done!

Blends, Alcohol & Picture This Dies.2

For the inside, I added a strip of the Blends-treated Vellum that I had trimmed from the basic piece to a Basic White panel and that was it. The panel was added to the inside of the card with iquid glue.

Blends, Alcohol & Picture This Dies.3

For the envelope… I took a piece of Misty Moonlight and ran it through the Painted Texture Embossing Folder, then added it to the envelope flap and trimmed it to fit. I used this embossing folder as I wanted it to look like rumbling sea 🙂 For the front of the card I stamped the fish using Calypso Coral ink, then the bubble stamp with Misty Moonlight ink – a school of fish! And the card was done.

Fun project! I hadn’t used the Picture This Dies before, nor have I played enough with the Seascape bundle. Card cuts will be listed at the end of this post.

Stampin’ Up! C’mas Card w/ Blends / Alcohol

WooHoo! It is Jul 1 ~ and do you know what that means? 15% off select Designer Series Papers – Yippee! I’m placing my order right after this post goers live – oh, and you can find more information below.

Today’s card is super simple but does take some planning ahead to create the ‘backdrop’ or your own DSP. Here’s the card…

Can you see the use of the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder? I think the second photo shows it better. I was hoping it would show more, but it doesn’t so much. I love the look though. And the Gilded Leafing in a few places adds an elegant element and it kinda looks like lightning going through the trees. The front sentiment comes from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set, gold embossed & die cut with the Ornate Layers Dies then layered on a larger panel of Just Jade card stock.This sentiment banner was mounted on dimensionals and added to the card front. I added three Holiday Gems for a bit of glam 🙂

Steps for making the card front:

  • Begin with a panel of Vellum 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
  • With the darkest of Stampin’ Blends, add color to the Vellum. Here I used Dk. Just Jade & Dk. Granny Apple Green.
  • Spritz with 91% or greater Alcohol just till colors begin to ‘move’. If necessary, lift the Vellum for the alcohol to run a bit. The Vellum will curl some on the edges but once you have the colors the way you want them, just leave it flat to dry. This does not take very long. You can work on the rest of the card while waiting OR you can use the low setting on your heat tool to help it dry faster.
  • Once the Vellum is dry, trim to the size desired (I cut this to 4 x 5 1/4) and reserve the cut pieces.
  • Adhere it to a panel of Basic White – same size. There are two ways to do this…
    • Idea 1: Use a piece of sponge and lightly add liquid glue all over the card stock, then adhere Vellum to it.
    • Idea 2: Use Stampin’ Seal along the edges and a swipe down the middle of the Basic White panel. It’s important to get it to the edge of the card stock as the Vellum can still curl.
  • Run through the Evergreen Forest Embossing Folder
  • Adhere this Vellum/ Basic White to a layer of Gold Foil Sheets cut slightly larger (4 1/8 x 5 3/8) with liquid glue.
  • Adhere this to the card base (Just Jade 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2) – again with liquid glue.
C’mas Card w/ Blends/ Alcohol.1

For the inside of the card…

C’mas Card w/ Blends/ Alcohol.2

On a panel of Basic White, adhere one of the remaining strips with Stampin’ Seal. Stamp the tree in Evening Evergreen ink stamped off once, then the ‘grass’ in Just Jade, also stamped off. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue. This tree & grass is from the Evergreen Elegance stamp set.

For the envelope…

C’mas Card w/ Blends/ Alcohol.4

Adhere the remaining Vellum strip to the envelope front w/ Stampin’ Seal. Stamp the flap in full strength Just Jade ink using the ‘splotch’ from the Artistically Inked stamp set.

Love how this turned out! And creating the card front with Vellum, Blends & Alcohol was freeing…. In other words, it is creativity at work. I encourage you to try this using various colors. What’s to lose?

If you have questions just let me know. If you would like to be able to order products early from catalogs AND enjoy that 20% discount, join my team now… you may do that here. We have lots of fun and are a creative bunch that encourages & supports one another.
