Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Birthday

It’s Tuesday – do you have something F-U-N planned? It’s our son-in-laws birthday today and I’ve made a special card for him… He tends toward the modern and straight lines, so I decided to follow that. We also have a bag that one of his presents is in and that determined the colors for the card, cuz I wanted them to coordinate. Silly? Maybe, but there it is. The cloth bag has tones of brown & a beautiful blue – I decided on Bermuda Bay and it almost matches perfectly! For the brown I used Soft Suede and it’s just ok… I think it looks good on the card.

Stitched Triangles Birthday.1

I’ve used a RETIRED product – totally against the ‘rules’ but again, I wanted to use something that I thought our son-in-law would like. The retired item is Mercury Glass Designer Acetate in silver. A current item is the Hydrangea Hill Mercury Designer Acetate and I SHOULD HAVE used that, turned to the reverse side… but honestly I didn’t think of it. šŸ˜¦ In my product list, Hydrangea Hill Mercury Designer Acetate will show, cuz it will totally work!

Here’s what I did…

  • Die cut triangles from Pattern Party DSP – 2
  • Die cut triangles from Hydrangea Hill Mercury Designer Acetate on the silver side – 2
  • Adhered them together offset – as shown in photo. using Stampin’ Seal (HINT/ TIP: Stampin’ Seal does not show through the acetate!)
  • Adhered to the card base – Thick Basic White as shown
  • Stamped sentiments from Biggest Wish stamp set: happy in Bermuda Bay ink and BIRTHDAY in Sahara Sand ink. I used the Stamparatus for this as it makes it really easy.
  • Added three Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins
Stitched Triangles n Birthday, inside.2

For the inside I did some creative die cutting with additional dies from the Stitched Triangles Dies.

  • On the left I die cut directly into the Basic White panel using the Stitched Triangles Dies
  • I die cut two fun ‘banners’ from Soft Suede card stock then Bermudas Bay card stock and adhered them together with liquid glue, off-set.
  • Adhere the Basic White panel to a Bermuda Bay panel, slightly larger, with Stampin’ Seal, then into the inside of the card, again with Stampin’ Seal – – – and the card was D-O-N-E.
Stitched Triangles Birthday.3

For the envelope…

  • Die cut a strip with one of the Stitched Triangles Dies from Bermuda Bay card stock
  • Adhere with dots of liquid glue to Soft Suede card stock the same length but slightly wider
  • Adhere to envelope with Stampin’ Seal – and both card & envelope are d-o-n-e. YAY… Gosh, I just looked at the photo and it’s hard to tell the Bermuda Bay from the Soft Suede <:(

I THINK our son-in-law will like this card – and his gifties. Such fun to create for others with what they like in mind.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday In The Wild

Happy Saturday! It’s a beautiful day here on the East Coast and I’m hoping your day is a good one as well. I have a fun fold for you today – a tri-fold – you could maybe call it a cascade tri fold . It’s our grandsons 21st birthday today. Nothing like a grandchilds birthday to make me feel O-L-D! But then I figure – age is all in the head…besides, I’m doing some good things and age just doesn’t really matter.

Birthday In The Wild.1

This card is loaded with Designer Series Paper and very little card stock and it feels good in the hand – not flimsy. The base is In The Woods DSP cut 12 x 5 1/2, scored on the long side at 4 & 8, then burnished & folded mountain, valley. I then marked the front panel 1 1/2″ down from the top on the far left end and trimmed with my paper trimmer from the mark to the 2nd fold. This creates the cascade look. I then decorated each of the panels, inside & out. I used In The Wild DSP as the true focal point – it’s masculine and colorful. Since I do not have the dies for these beautiful creatures, I fussy cut a few and set them aside to add as necessary.

Birthday In The Wild.2

Panel 2 got a layer of this beautiful In The Wild DSP cut 3 15/16 x 5 1/2. I adhered it, then placed the card in my trimmer and trimmed off the top edge.

.Panel 3 actually got some card stock… 3 15/16 x 4 1/4 Basic White adhered in place. I added one of the beautiful creatures with liquid glue, making certain it did not show when the card was closed. I then stamped the word HAPPY using the Biggest Wish stamp set and Crushed Curry ink. I die cut the numbers 21 using scrap from the In The Wild DSP and the Playful Alphabet Dies. ((TIP: for strength of the numbers & balloon, I adhered some basic White to the DSP then die cut or punched as necessary.) I added the numbers with liquid glue. The balloon… is punched using the Balloon Punch, which is a retired item. I do have a die for a balloon but this punch was handy. First I cut a short length of Linen Thread and held it in place on the back of the balloon with a couple of dimensionals, then put it in place on the card.

Birthday In The Wild.3

Now I finished the front panel. With the card closed I adhered this beautiful creature with liquid glue just on it’s lower portion. The reason the card is closed is because you don’t want it on beyond the card šŸ™‚ I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink using the All Squared Away stamp set on a Basic White scrap and fussy cut it. I like the font on this. I used a stitched rectangle from the Ornate Layers Dies and cut a panel of DSP (and yes, I did adhere Basic White to it before die cutting for strength.) I adhered the sentiment to this rectangle with liquid glue, then put dimensionals on the back and added it to the front of the card. I also added three Matte Black Dots.

Birthday In The Wild.4

I turned the card over and decorated the back side – with more of the In The Wild DSP. And I added a small fusasy cut beautiful creature for fun. I used the same trick for trimming the angle of the panels as before – the paper trimmer. For the right panel I did have to do some fussy cutting around the animals.

Birthday In The Wild.5

For the envelope I adhered more DSP from In The Wild DSP pack and then stamped the sentiment in Cajun Craze ink from the All Squared Away stamp set. This is the perfect sentiment and again, I love the font.

So, what do you think? I wanted something bright but not gawdy, not too sophisticated (which this definitely is NOT), masculine and yet fun. For me, this fits the bill. Except for the numbers, this card could be used many ages – and I like that idea too.

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!

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.

Stampin’ Up! Trifold Birthday Card

Hello stampers! Today’s card is a fun fold I have not done in – well, a long time. No reason really, just haven’t. I guess we could call it a Cascading Fun Fold and I’ve used the Pansy Patch bundle & Pansy Petals DSP to create this beauty.

Trifold Birthday.1

Isn’t this fun? And it’s for a dear friend who is turning 95! I couldn’t resist doing something special for her. Here are the basic steps for creating a Cascading Tri-Fold.

  • Begin with a card base cut 5 1/2 x 12 and score on the long side at 4 & 8. Burnish score lines as shown.
  • Mark 1 3/8″ from bottom left corner and cut from that point to the second score line. See photo.
Trifold Birthday.2
  • Create panels for decorating. I chose the Pansy Petals DSP and coordinated several papers – as you see.
    • Panel 1 is 3 3/4 x 3 1/4, then trimmed at the desired angle.
    • Panel 2 is 3 3/4 x 5 1/8, then trimmed at the desired angle. Cut two of these in able to decorate opposite side.
    • Panel 3 is 3 3/4 x 5 1/4
    • Adhere each with liquid glue.
Trifold Birthday.3
  • Decorate as desired with die cuts or stamping.
    • I used the Pansy Petals DSP and the Pansy Dies to die cut straight from the DSP each of the pansies – five of them is various colors & sizes.
    • The leaves are die cut from Mint Macaron & Soft Succulent card stocks and adhered together with liquid glue.
    • On panel 1, I used the Playful Alphabet Dies for the numbers (in Evening Evergreen cs), the Painted Labels Dies for the Basic White and the Layering Circles Dies in Evening Evergreen cs for the background of the die. This was adhered with dimensionals. The banner was stamped in Evening Evergreen ink on a 3/8 strip and the ends fussy cut. This was adhered with mini dimensionals. The sentiment comes from Pansy Petals stamp set.
    • On panel 2, (gingham side) the leaves are adhered directly to the card and the pansies are on dimensionals.
    • On panel 2 (Bumblebee side) the pansies were adhered directly to the card.
    • On panel 3 the sentiment was stamped in Evening Evergreen from the Pansy Petals stamp set and the pansy adhered with liquid glue.
    • For a final touch I added several Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.
    • And the card is complete!
Trifold Birthday.4

For the envelope, the flap got more of the Pansy Petals DSP. For the front I stamped a pansy from the Pansy Petals stamp set: Pale Papaya stamped off once, then Calypso Coral full strength and for the center, Bumblebee. Voila! This will be sent in today’s mail so she gets it in time for her celebration – so pleased…

TIP: For cutting the DSP panels on the angle… cut the panels (say 3 3/4 x 3 1/4) then lay on the angled card base and make a line on the DSP. Trim and adhere!

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Masculine Birthday

The Biggest Wish stamp set just arrived recently and it is a fabulous stamp set. I’m going to share two cards with you today, both using this set. One is a sort of fun fold, simple & easy but a change from the ordinary. The other is more traditional. Both are masculine cards – and birthday. Here is the fun fold card…

Biggest Wish Masculine Birthday.1

The Designer Series Paper is called Well Suited and it is from the Jan-Jun Mini Catalog – which retires 30 June! Some of the coordinating papers for this DSP are Night of Navy, Smoky Slate, Cajun Craze and of course Basic White, which I have used. The stripy piece flips up for additional sentiment.

Biggest Wish Masculine Birthday.2

And here’s how I created this… the Night of Navy card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. 1/2″ from the left edge, I adhered another panel of Night of Navy cut 2 1/4 x 10 1/2 and scored at 5 1/4. Leaving this panel open, I adhered the Well Suited DSP 4 x 5 1/4 over this and right to the top of the fold on the panel. I then attached the striped pattern of the DSP ( cut 2 x 5). For the Basic White panel, I stamped the sentiment first in Night of Navy ink and that comes from the Days to Remember stamp set. I then stamped the balloons in Cajun Craze ink, also from the Days to Remember stamp set and used the Night of Navy marker to create the tails of the balloons. The balloons on the left were stamped off once. This panel is just a tad wider – 2 1/8 x 5 and adhered in place. Back to the front of the card… I stamped the word happy from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Smoky Slate ink on a Basic White piece then punched it with the Tailored Tag Punch. I punched another from Cajun Craze card stock, cut it in half vertically and adhered it to the back of the tag with liquid glue. I cut a length of Smoky Slate Textured Ribbon, made pointy ends and adhered it on the front flip panel with Seal+. The sentiment banner got dimensionals and was adhered over the ribbon. For a final bit of bling – even guys need bling now & then – I added three Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Gems – and the front was complete! Foolish me, I did not take a picture of the back… but I did cut a panel of Basic White 4 x 5 1/4, stamped the large BIRTHDAY in Smoky Slate ink at the bottom left corner, then stamped the scripty word happy in Cajun Craze ink above it. This gave enough writing room for something fun.

Biggest Wish Masculine Birthday.3

For the envelope, I stamped the scripty word birthday in Smoky Slate ink, along the side, then the word happy in Cajun Craze ink. Both come from Biggest Wish stamp set. The flap was covered in more of the Well-Suited DSP.

Card #2… super simple, still using the Well-Suited DSP and Biggest Wish stamp set.

Biggest Wish Masculine Birthday.4

Here I used a different piece of the Well-Suited DSP and coordinated it with Pacific Point and Smoky Slate, with a bit of bling using the Metallic Pearls in silver. The card base is Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2. The DSP is 3 3/16 x 4 1/4 adhered to Pacific Point card stock 3 3/8 x 4 1/4. Both were added to the card front with liquid glue. I stamped the large word BIRTHDAY in Smoky Slate ink then the scripty word happy in Pacific Point ink. then added the three Metallic Pearls in silver… and the card front was done!

Biggest Wish Masculine Birthday.5

For the inside – Well-Suited DSP 5/8 x 4 1/4 adhered with liquid glue to a Pacific Point piece 3/4 x 4 1/4. This was added near the bottom of the inside of the card and the inside was complete.

Biggest Wish Masculine Birthday.6

For the envelope, I used another panel of the Well-Suited DSP and adhered it to the flap and voila – that was it! Here are the two cards together…

I have really enjoyed playing with the Well-Suited DSP. It has been perfect for many masculine cards. And now that I have played with the Biggest Wish stamp set, it will be used a lot! DANG! just checked and the Well-Suited DSP is sold out!!! That’s good for Stampin’ Up! – not so good for you…

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!

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.

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! Butterfly Brilliance Birthday Shines Again

It’s interesting how we get on a roll of using a particular stamp set and sometimes it’s hard to do something else šŸ™‚ That’s the case with the Butterfly Brilliance bundle ~ it’s hard to stop playing with it… Today’s card was inspired by one I posted a few days ago. My key colors were So Saffron, Smoky Slate & Basic White – and layers.

Butterfly Brilliance Birthday.1

This card really pops for me; I really appreciate the contrast. The Butterfly Brilliance is stamped full strength in Smoky Slate ink on a Basic White panel. The swallowtail is stamped in Memento Black ink on another piece of Basic Whtie, colored with So Saffron Blends and dark Smoky Slate Blends, die cut with the Brillinat Wings Dies, put on dimensionals and added to the card front panel. I adhered this with liquid glue to a Smoky Slate piece slightly larger, wrapped Bumblebee Gingham ribbon around and tacked it in place with Seal+, then added this to a So Saffron Card base with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment in Memento ink on a Basic White scrap using the Best Year stamp set then punched it out with the Timeless Label Punch. I punched another from So Saffron card stock and added it to the sentiment banner with dimensionals. I put this in place over the ribbon with liquid glue. I added three Genial Gems for a bit of bling ~ and the card front was complete.

Butterfly Brilliance Birthday.1

For the inside, I stamped the Swallowtail in an upside down position in stamped off Memento ink (Butterfly Brilliance stamp set) then stamped the sentiment in full strength Memento ink from the Best Year stamp set. I love these fonts! I adhered the Basic White panel to a slightly larger Smoky Slatge with liquid glue then to the inside of the card base. Voila!

For the envelope I added Subtles 6×6 DSP in So Saffron to the envelope flap with liquid glue and trimmed to fit. I stamped one of the smaller butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Smoky Slate both on the envelope flap and on the front of the envelope. Done, Done! Love this card – so soft and gorgeous – and as I said, these fonts are wonderful. Card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post.

Butterfly Brilliance Birthday

It is Sunday, May 30…. do you have big plans this Memorial Day weekend? We live on the East Coast, the Jersey shore as a matter of fact and this is always a big weekend. Unfortunately, we have had storms since Friday evening and that keeps folks from any water activities. But you know what ~ it doesn’t keep folks from getting together! Enjoy the time celebrating and remembering the sacrifices others have made for our freedoms. Thank you to our military personnel and their families!!! Bless you for your service.

Today’s card is a birthday card made with the fabulous Butterfly Brilliance bundle. This is a large stamp with all these gorgeous butterflies. I have chosen to use Pale Papaya card stock – new In Color for 2021-2023 – as the card base, but you could easily use Basic White or other light colors. Let’s take a look…

Butterfly Brilliance Birthday

Using Smoky Slate,I stamped off once, then stamped on thePale Papaya card stock panel. Using Memento Black ink, I stamped another butterfly on a Pale Papaya piece and colored it with Stampin’ Blends Pale Papaya and Dark Smoky Slate. And while it doesn’t show in the photo, I covered the body and the tips of the wings in Wink of Stella, the die cut it once thoroughly dry. I mounted it on dimensionals and attached it over the same butterfly. For the sentiment banner I wanted something that had curvy lines, nothing too straight or squared off, as the butterflies have this softness of shape to them. I pulled out my Many Messages bundle (includes Messages Dies) and inked the specific sentiment in Memento ink and stamped it on another Pale Papaya scrap and die cut it. This, too, is mounted to the front panel on dimensionals and has a single Genial Gem. I adhered this panel to the Pale Papaya card base with liquid glue and the card front was complete.

Butterfly Brilliance Birthday, inside

For the inside, I used a smaller butterfly from the same stamp set and stamped it in Smoky Slate, first generation. The sentiment is from the Best Year stamp set and is stamped in Memento Black ink. I added more Genial Gems around the sentiment. This basic White panel was adhered directly to the inside of the card with liquid glue and wow – done!

For the envelope Used the same smaller butterfly to stamp the flap and the front of the card in Smoky Slate ink.

Let’s talk about this Butterfly Brilliance bundle for just a moment. I have cut my butterflies apart ~ and my dies ~ so that I can easily use just one. I also have a second set that allows me to stamp the full stamp and die cut all the butterflies together. So, just sayin’… want you to know how I made this work for me. Card Cuts are listed at the bottom of this post.

Stampin’ Up! More Pansy Patch

Hello again… it’s Pansy Patch time as we are completing the gift box for Mother’s Day šŸ™‚ These cards have been a challenge for me – lots of parts and wanting to stamp and die cut, plus, learning the set. At any rate I’ve come up with two more notecards/ envelopes for our Mother’s Day Gift box using the Pansy Patch Bundle/ Suite.

Yep, all new products on these cards! Let’s begin with the card on the left: two panels of square card stock (Pale Papaya & Pansy Petals DSP) layered, then a Vellum square doily on top of that. The doily just adds something – texture maybe, and a bit of a Victorian look. When I put these together I used Stampin’ Seal and just in the middle of the square. I rather like the looseness of the papers. Then I created the single pansy: Fresh Freesia card stock and ink, a bit of So Saffron card stock and ink and then Blackberry Bliss card stock for the very center. After putting all the parts together I added the pansy to the squares with dimensionals. Before adding the squares to the card I adhered two strips of card stock acrosss: Fresh Freesia and the Pansy Petals DSP – then adhered the squares with liquid glue. For a final touch I added these adorable Loose Flower Flourishes with liquid glue. Aren’t they sweet?

For the inside of this card… I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on a panel of Basic White card stock. After allowing this to dry for a bit I used my Blending Brush to gently add Fresh Freesia ink all over the panel, making it darker in the center. I added a Pale Papaya card stock panel behind this for a nice contrast and then into the inside of the card. Voila! For the envelope I stamped the pansy first in Fresh Freesia ink, then the filler in Blackberry Bliss ink , the small triangle definition in Gorgeous Grape ink and finally the center in Bumblebee ink. I added another panel of the gorgeous Pansy Petals DSP to the envelope flap and the card was done!

For card #2 I chose to go in another direction… I die cut a panel of Basic White card stock with the Stitched so Sweetly Dies, then cut a panel of the Pansy Petal DSP with the Scalloped Contours Dies. This is a very fun set of scalloped rectangle dies included with the Color & Contour stamp set – a post for another day! šŸ™‚ Back to card #2 – I’ll show the photo again so it’s easier to follow along.

Pansy Patch 2 – card #2

I die cut the stem of the flower bud in Soft Succulent card stock, the bud in two parts: Basic White and Pale Papaya card stock. I then die cut the single leaf using Soft Succulent card stock and Evening Evergreen card stock. Then it was time to die cut the pansy… 2 panels of the upper petals in Pale Papaya card stock, the contrast in Calypso Coral card stock. The front petals are die cut first in Basic White card stock, then the overlay in Pale Papaya, Calypso Coral and Bumblebee for the center. This front layer was adhered to the upper petals (and the card front) with dimensionals; the upper petals adhered to the card front with liquid glue. The other parts were added with liquid glue. The final touch was the Bumblebee Trinket – love this bumblebee! For the inside, I cut another of the same Pansy Petal DSP and layered it with Basic White card stock – no stamping done. For the envelope I adhered some more of the gorgeous Pansy Petals DSP to the flap, then a portion of a a pansy that i fussy cut and adhered with liquid glue. Of course it got Wink of Stella!

This has been a fun project for me – hope you like it too! Remember this is a gift set for Mother’s Day and available for purchase $23 + shipping. Here’s is the complete set.
