Stampin’ Up! More All Squared Away

Remember the stash I spoke of yesterday – the one with die cuts not yet used on a card? Well – here’s another die cut from All Squared Away using the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP – and yep, it’s a birthday card.

All Squared Away.1

Super simple today, not many layers. This card starts with a card base of Gray Granite card stock. To that is a Basic White panel run through the with one of the Meadow Moments Embossing Folders. This folder is so delicate and sweet. The die cut mentioned earlier was added to the panel with small amounts of liquid glue. And notice, the flower center has one of the little dots from the embossing folder. 🙂 The next thing I did was stamp the sentiment in Gray Granite ink, also using the All Squared Away stamp set. I added three 2021-2023 In Co0lor Jewels in Pale Papaya then wrapped Gray Granite Baker’s twine around it twice and tied a knot. The twine is from the Essential Baker’s Twine Pack. The Basic White panel was now complete and adhered to the Gray Granite card stock with liquid glue – done!

All Squared Away.2

For the inside, I used an oval stamp from Watercolor Shapes stamp set and Pale Papaya ink to create a spot for the sentiment. I taped of a portion of the stamp I didn’t want to use and inked it with Gray Granite ink, removed the tape and stamped it over the oval. The Basic White panel was adhered to the inside of the Gray granite card base – and voila!

All Squared Away.3

For the envelope I ran more Gray Granite card stock through the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder, this time using the other folder in the two-pack. This is every bit as delicate & sweet. The panel was adhered to the envelope flap and trimmed to fit. Finis… and ready to send.

Yesterdays card was multi-layered and bold while today’s is monochromatic and pretty much single layered. I love that we can do that, show creativity in various ways and still be beautiful. Definitely not something one would find in a store! Handmade at it’s best… Card cuts are listed at the end of this post.

Card cuts for today’s project:

Stampin’ Up! Polished Pink & Pool Party Birthday

Who would have thought Polished Pink & Pool Party would compliment each other? Not me! But as I was playing with colors, I really liked this combo ~ and the Gray Granite is just enough to soften things a bit. And this came together because I was rooting around in my stash and found these die cuts from the All Squared Away bundle!

Polished Pink & Pool Party Birthday.1

The flower die cut comes from Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP using the Floral Squares Dies and the background is stamped in Polished Pink on a Basic White panel with the All Squared Away stamp set. I trimmed that down and adhered the die cut with liquid glue, put dimensionals on the back and attached it to a larger square of Basic White cut with the Layering Squares Dies (OOPS>>> these are a retired item – bummer!). I used a scalloped square from the Layering Squares Dies to create a Polished Pink and the squares were adhered to that with liquid glue. This is when I discovered this fun contrast with Pool Party… using the Fine Art Floral DSP and the Scallop & Contour Dies. I made a square by die cutting only a portion of the Scallop, matching the contours and die cutting the other end. And I really like the smaller scallop paired with the larger scallop.; it provides a nice contrast. The Polished Pink layers were adhered to this new scalloped square with liquid glue, then onto a larger panel of Basic White. I pulled in another Pool Party using the Subtles 6×6 DSP and adhered that to a Thick Basic White card base (yep, lisuid glue) then added all the layers using liquid glue. The sentiment banner comes from the Artistically Inked stamped set and I stamped that in Gray Granite on a Basic White strip then angled the ends. That was attached to a Polished Pink strip and added to the card front with liquid glue. For a final bit of bling, I added three 2021-2023 In Color Jewels in Polished Pink ~ and the card front was done!

Polished Pink & Pool Party
Birthday, inside.2

For the inside of the card I added another panel of the Fine Art Floral DSP. On the Basic White panel, I stamped this extra fun ‘blotch’ using the Artistically Ink stamp set with Pool Party ink. Over that I stamped the sentiment with Basic Gray ink from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set. I adhered the Basic White panel to the DSP and the card itself was complete.

Polished Pink & Pool Party Birthday.3

For the envelope, I used the Subtles 6×6 DSP to adhere to the envelope flap and that was it. I’m rather excited about this new color combo… hope you like it too. Card cuts are listed at the end of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Pop and Flip Card with All Squared Up

A Pop & Flip card is fairly easy but it does require a ‘mechanism’ to hold the flip piece. I’ve complicated the project by creating three windows to ‘flip’ in one card. But no matter, the process is still the same, just done three times 🙂

Pop & Flip w/ All Squared Up, #1

And here’s a side view showing the mechanism.

Pop & Flip w/ All Squared Up. #2

The challenge in this particular card is we cannot put an opened slimline card through our die cutting machine as the card is too wide. The challenge here is we must cut an opening large enough for the three ‘flips’, then make a separate covering with three openings for the individual flips. Is this starting to make sense a bit?

  • Step 1 is to make the opening… leaving a border of about 1/2″ on all sides of the card front. Use the paper trimmer to do this. For a slimline card, the dimensions are 8 1/2 x 7 scored at 3 1/2. I used Thick Basic White for my card base.

  • Step 2 is to cut two panels 8 1/2 x 3 1/2; one is from DSP for the card front, the other is the same color as the card base. For this card, I used Bloom Where You Are Planted DSP for the card front and Basic White. (I wanted it to look as though the flowers were climbing the brick wall 🙂
    • Place these two pieces right sides together; mark the top on both pieces. (This can be done on the back side)
    • Using the Layering Squares, die cut all three openings. I began by doing the center panel first, then the two on either side. It is helpful to use the grid paper as a guideline for measurement. KEEP these cut out panels, both DSP & Basic White, and adhere together with liquid glue. They will be the background for the ‘flip’ and must match the DSP for the front. You can see in the photo below how the pattern matches.
    • Using Stampin’ Seal, adhere the front DSP panel to the card front, making certain the piece top ‘mark’ is toward the score line.
    • Adhere the Basic White panel on the inside with the ‘mark’ toward the score line and adhering even the center areas between the squares. This step is crucial in allowing the decorated pieces to slip through easily. In other words, the openings must match perfectly!
    • Adhere a panel 8 3/8 x 6 7/8 to the bottom half on the inside of the card. I used DSP, but it could be a coordinate color of card stock, or a Basic White piece. This piece must be in. place before adhering the mechanism for the ‘flip’.
Pop & Flip w/ All Squared Up, #3
  • Create the first part of the mechanism – the box. See photo 2 above.
    • Cut three strips 1 1/4 x 2 and score @ 1/2, 1, and 1 1/2. Burnish well.
    • Place two pieces of Tear n Tape at one end of each strip (yes, they will overlap a bit), and one piece of Tear n Tape at the opposite end. Remove the covering of the Tear n Tape at the end with two strips and centering it with the center square, adhere to the inside of the card, close to the score line but not constricting the closure of the card. Adhere the other two strips in the same manner.
    • Fold the strips in half, remove the remaining Tear n Tape and close card, adhering this to the card front. Voila – like magic, the box is created!
  • Create the second part of the mechanism – the extra strip that holds the ‘flip’. This is the point at which the reserved panels are used. Be certain which reserved DSP panel fits in the correct opening matching the DSP. Here is the side view photo again, showing the additional piece.
    • Cut three strips 1 x 1 3/4 and score @ 1″. Burnish well. The short end will fold up.
    • TURN STRIPS OVER, so the fold is facing down. Adhere two pieces of Tear n Tape at the long end and one piece at the other end. Remove the covering of the two ends, CLOSE CARD, and adhere to each box so that it is against the front of the card front.
    • With the card still closed, remove the single piece of Tear n Tape, attaching the reserved DSP panels. They should fit exactly into the openings and the card should open & close. Exciting!!!
Pop & Flip w/ All Squared Up, #2
  • Decorate your DSP panels…
    • I used the Floral Square Dies from the All Squared Up bundle, choosing three of the squares to cut from Basic White card stock.
    • Using additional dies from this set I cut pieces from Fresh Freesia, Polished pink, Pale Papaya & Highland Heather card stocks. I adhered these with dabs of liquid glue as you see in the photo.
    • For additional glam, I added Metallic Pearls in silver and a single Iridescent Pearl to the center flower.

Stampin’ Up! All Squared Away, Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day! And to those who nurture, encourage, and inspire others, we celebrate you as well. May you have a day of ……. Today’s card is one that could be used as a birthday card, a hello card, a cheerful thinking of you card. And it is made with one of the new bundles in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog called All Squared Away.

All Squared Away – #1

Oh, I just realized the lighting wasn’t quite right, I hope you can see it OK. I first die cut my squares using the Floral Squares Dies that are part of this All Squared Away bundle. Aren’t they cute? And just so you know, there are four squares and naturally, I’ve only used three. I used additional dies in this set to cut the various flowers using some of the new In Colors card stock: Pale Papaya, Polished Pink and Fresh Freesia. These were adhered with dabs of liquid glue. I then embellished those with these adorable Loose Flower Flourishes, again adhered w/ dabs of liquid glue. I then added these to a panel of 2021-2023 In Color 6×6 DSP (Pale Papaya) that was adhered to a piece of Basic White card stock. I stamped the sentiment with Fresh Freesia ink on a strip of Basic White, added a length of Grosgrain Ribbon in Highland Heather, put dimensionals on the back and attached it. One last addition was theoh so cute Bumblebee trinket attached with a glue dot.This entire panel was added to a Pale Papaya card base. This is just so fresh! Love every bit of it.

All Squared Away #2

For the inside, I grabbed another new stamp set called Inspired Thoughts, and used this sentiment stamped in Fresh Freesia ink on a Basic White panel. I wrote my own Happy Mother’s Day beneath it! I adhered this with liquid glue to the inside of the card & voila – all done!

All Squared Away, #3

For the envelope, I adhered two coordinating pieces of the 2021-2023 In Colors 6×6 DSP to the flap and that was it. And this photo shows the card much better 🙂
