May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop January 20- Sketch Challenge'

My card is a Note card and I’v e chosen to work with the Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 SDSP and the Sweet Hearts Dies. Let’s take a peak.

Sweet Hearts Dies.1

Are these tiny hearts sweet or what?! The die I used cuts four of these at a time which makes it really easily to die cut multiples. As I look at this, I’m wondering why I didn’t add another strip of color to the inside of the Abstract Beauty 4×6 SDSP… Hmmm. A bit of ribbon maybe. Well, another card another day 🙂 These note cards are 3 1/2 x 5, so I cut a panel of Basic White card stock just that size, stamped the sentiment (from Rainbow of Happiness stamp set) in Magenta Madness ink, then ran this through the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I added the two narrow strips of the Abstract Beauty 4×6 SDSP to each side. I die cut the hearts from the same SDSP. The top gold heart is on a mini dimensional cut down to fit. The other hearts are added with dabs of liquid glue, and I put the dot of glue right on the card front in lieu of the heart.

For the inside of the card….

Sweet Heart Dies.2

I added another strip of the Abstract Beauty 4×6 SDSP to the right inside of the card and final heart die cut. Sweet, simple.

Sweet Heart Dies.3

For the envelope I stamped the front with the same sentiment from Rainbows of Happiness stamp set buty used Blushing Bride ink. And for envelope flap, a piece of Simply Marbelous 6×6 DSP (FREE during Sale-a-bration!) adhered with liquid glue and trimmed to fit.

Stampin’ Up! Rainbow of Happiness with Sunshine & Rainbows

Good 2022! It’s snowing here in New Jersey… temps dropped from 68 degrees yesterday to 26 degrees. YIKES, that’s a big drop in temps. The other day I promised to show more of the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP (FREE with Sale-a-bration which begins Jan 4!) and I’ve paired it with the coordinating Rainbow of Happiness bundle. So cheerful & fun! AND… today being Jan 4, 2022 – you can get this NOW… ‘cuz the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini Catalog has gone L-I-V-E! WooHoo! Today’s card is another thank you card.

Rainbow of Happiness w/ Sunshine & Rainbows.1

Isn’t this fun? There are so many cute stamps & dies in this Rainbow of Happiness bundle! Here’s what I did… I took a Sunshine & Rainbows 6×6 DSP and cut it by marking 1″ over on two opposite corners., then turning the paper to the left and doing the same. Then I cut those pieces along the lines. The green piece of DSP is the result of those cuts. LOVE the cut! I adhered that to a panel of Basic White cut 4 x 5 1/4. I took another piece of the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP cut 2 3/4 x 3 1/2 and lined it up with the right angle of the green panel and matching it along the bottom of that same green panel of DSP. I adhered that piece to the Basic White panel. There was extra overlapping pieces & I removed those so it was even with the Basic White panel. I then took a piece of Bermuda Bay card stock and with the Brilliant Rainbows Dies, die cut the fun pattern of small rainbows. I adhered that across the bottom of the panel with dots of liquid glue. (I KEPT all the little die cut pieces to use for the inside 😏) Using the Rainbows & Sunshine stamp set, I stamped the design on the Basic White piece: So Saffron ink, Pool Party ink, Misty Moonlight ink. With Misty Moonlight Ink, I stamped a portion of the sentiment -you make me – on another piece of the Sunshine & Rainbows 6×6 DSP & fussy cut it. I stamped the remaining word – happy – on another portion of the same DSP and die cut it with one of the cloud dies in the Brilliant Rainbows Dies. Put these on dimensionals and add to the card front.For an added touch I adhered three Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels near the sentiment. These are a NEW ITEM in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog that goes live Jan 4. This panel was now ready to adhere to a slightly larger piece – So Saffron – with liquid glue. Dimensionals were placed on the back and the card front was done.

For the inside…

Rainbow of Happiness, inside

I die cut the bottom of this Basic White piece with the same rainbows die from the Brilliant Rainbows Dies. I added this to the inside of the card base with liquid glue then attached what was left to the bottom. Remember all those Bermuda Bay pieces from the card front? Add those with liquid glue and you have this fun rainbow effect. Stamp the sentiment (thank you) in Misty Moonlight ink. And Voila! the inside is done!!

The envelope…

For the envelope flap, I attached various scraps from the original piece of 6×6 DSP. For the envelope front, I stamped the lines in Pool Party ink and the sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink. Finis! Can’t wait to send this fun thank you card! I can’t wait to see what YOU do with this fun paper & bundle.

OK… I reminded you the catalog is now live – products are listed below so you 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. AND… I have the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog and the 4 January to 28 February 2022 Sale-a-bration catalogs and can send those as well! When ordering, please also use current host code: R6D2 7PHD.

Stampin’ Up! Gift Card Box with Sweet Talk DSP

Hello again! It’s been a while since I’ve shared anything… life obligations kinda got in the way. It’s all good, just too much going on and something had to give. Unfortunately it was my crafting :O(

Hubby and I are in a choir and our concert was Sunday afternoon ~ with orchestra and a full audience! WooHoo!! It was… spectacular. Not to brag too much, but it really was good, and I feel so fortunate to be a part of it.

Today’s project is a gift card box made with some fabulous new Designer Series Paper. It’s called Sweet Talk 12 x 12 DSP. Of course the DSP has two sides.

Coordinating colors for this paper pack are: Real Red, Petal Pink, So Saffron, Granny Apple Green, Pool Party and Highland Heather. Which piece do you think I chose to make the box lid? Well, I’ll tell you… the Highland Heather stripe. I love this paper! The small hearts with the combo of Real Red, Petal Pink and Highland Heather are another favorite, as is the other stripe. Ok – I bet you want to see the box … here it is.

Gift Card Box.1

And I used the Highland heather 1/2″ Grosgrain Ribbon to tie a bow. For the base, while it isn’t listed as a coordinating color, I used Blackberry Bliss card stock and it looks great with it! See the darkness in that stripe? Yep – it totally goes with it. Instructions? You want instructions? 😁

Instructions:

  • Cut gift box base from card stock – I used Blackberry Bliss – 6 1/2 x 8 and score all four sides at 1″, burnish well.
  • Trim each corner, cutting through the center of the burnish to the 1″ score line. Make a right ‘V’ cut to that same tab, trim same tab end on the right side.
  • Rotate to the left and trim next tab. Continue to rotate left and trim each tab end. See photo.
Gift Card Box. bottom

Here i added Tear n Tape to each tab end but you can easily use liquid glue. Adhere together.

Gift Box Top:

  • Cut box top 6 1/2 x 8 (again, I used the Sweet Talk 12 x 12 DSP)
  • Use a Box Lid Shim attached to the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. This shim allows for the lid to fit the box base without making the base buckle – and it is key for a perfect fitting lid. Make your own shim following directions below. I found these directions on YouTube by Connie Stewart.
    • Using a window sheet, cut a panel 2 x 8 and score @ 1/2″ & 1 1/4″. Burnish heavily.
    • Cut a piece of Daffodil Delight 1 x 8 & score at 1/2″ on the short side. Burnish. Add Tear n Tape to both sides of the 1/2″ length. Add to the window sheet on the INSIDE 1/2″, making certain the card stock fits all the way to the burnished score of the window sheet. Fold card stock over edge of window sheet and attach to outside 1/2″ edge.
    • Label shim: Box Lid Shim 😏 This way you will not forget it is only to be used for the lid.
  • Score lid @ 1″ on all sides using the Box Lid Shim.
  • Trim and adhere together the same as the box bottom.
Gift Card Box. top

Now, fill this box with some pretty cards/ envelopes for a special gift – four to five will fit nicely, depending on embellishments or thickness of the cards. And I guarantee folks will love this gift!

Reminder! Wednesday, Dec 8, 2021, Stampin’ Up! is offering FREE SHIPPING with orders over $50. I, for one, plan to make good use of that! Use my current HOST CODE: UQ6U2WQZ to receive a free Stampin’ Up! item from me valued to $10.

  • Be sure to act quickly: beginning at 12:00 AM and ending at 11:59 PM (MT) on 8 December, get FREE shipping with a purchase of $50 USD / $65 CAD or more.

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! 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! 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!

Stampin’ Up! Snowman and Tree Christmas Tags

Hi Folks! How’s your Sunday so far? We’re really just getting started here on the East coast. After the gusts of wind and rain, today might be peaceful, weather-wise. Today’s project is kinda fun – Christmas tags! Does it seem too early? Well, not really, it’s less than eight (8) weeks away! YIKES! And today is Trick or Treat Day – quite a contrast to Christmas. We’ll see lots of goblins and vampires today. I love our neighborhood – lots of kids around. 🤗

Today’s post…

Snowman & Tree C’mas Tags

Cute, right? All the tags have a second panel that is retired DSP from Sale-a-bration. What did I do here…

  • Basic White card stock cut 4 1/4 x 11, then trimmed each one to 2 x 4 1/4; DSP same process
  • Punch each top with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch, including the DSP panel behind it
  • Use a sponge dauber & Sahara Sand ink to color the edges of all Basic White tags
  • For the snowman…
    • stamp the sentiment from Encircled in Warmth in Evening Evergreen ink
    • stamp the snowman from Snowman Season in Evening Evergreen ink
    • color the scarf with Real Red marker; the nose with Pumpkin Pie marker – this doesn’t bleed through!
    • thread ribbon through… I used both red & white crochet thread – about 8 1/2′ long
  • For the trees
    • I stamped the tree from Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink, then punched it out with the Pine Tree Punch
    • I added various widths of DSP (Peaceful Prints) to the bottom of the tag, then added the tree – on dimensionals
    • The last step was to stamp the sentiment from Perfectly Plaid stamp set in either Real Red ink or Evening Evergreen. The red trees were punched from the retired Sale-a-bration DSP, Peaceful Prints
    • The stars on these trees came from Gold Foil or the white foil from the Wonderful Snowflakes and die cut with Stitched Stars Dies
    • There are two stamped tags with trees – and I probably should replace these so the trees are all using the Pine Tree Punch.. but… the stamped trees came from Evergreen Elegance stamp set and were stamped in Evening Evergreen ink. I added Red Rhinestone Jewels to one of the trees and dots of Shimmery Crystal Effects to the tallest tree. You MUST let this dry throughly!!!

And that’s it… a fun project you could get your kids doing too. In lieu of peaceful Prints DSP I highly recommend Tidings of Christmas 6×6 DSP, Gingerbread & Peppermint 6×6 DSP, Painted Christmas DSPSweet Stockings DSP. You may need to change up the inks to coordinate with those papers, but this would totally work :O) I hope you enjoyed my project today.
