Stampin’ Up! Birthday w/ Sentiments Silhouettes Dies

Good morning! Welcome to a Tuesday Blog Hop Group. If you have come from visiting Karen Finkle – welcome. Our theme challenge is ‘birthday’ and I’ve created a fun card with the Sentiments Silhouettes Dies.

Birthday w/ Sentiments Silhouettes Dies.1

The Sentiments Silhouettes Dies is for die cutting sentiments in the coordinating Charming Sentiments stamp set. But it also has dies ‘outside of that’ – hearts, stars, birthday candles and more. I highly recommend this bundle – it’s fab!!!

I took a panel of Basic White and die cut five candles with the flame and two pattern candles. After die cutting I ran this through the Stripes & Splotches 3D embossing folder, obviously using the splotches :O) It adds texture and fun to the card. I put dimensionals on the back and attached it to a panel of Hues of Happiness 12 x 12 DSP. I inserted the die cuts of the two patterned candles, attaching them with liquid glue. I love how you can continue to see the patterned paper beneath them. Next, I took that same DSP and cut two panels with the Scalloped Contours Dies to make the scalloped edge. I used the same die to create the edge for the Basic White card base as well. With the card base edged, I added the scalloped pieces from the DSP. I then added the top panel, adhering with liquid glue. The sentiment comes from Sending Smiles stamp set and was stamped in Memento Black ink. I then added several Glossy Dots Assortments in both Pool Party and Daffodil Delight ~ and the card front was complete.

Birthday w/ Sentiments Silhouettes Dies, inside

For the inside I added a panel of Pool Party to the inside of the Basic White card base, then a ‘frame’ from Scalloped Contour Dies that I found in my stash. I love how it reinforces the scallops on the card front. The sentiment is again from Sending Smiles stamp set and stamped in Memento ink. The die cuts were taken from the Hues of Happiness DSP using the Sentiment Silhouette Dies.

For the envelope… I used Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends to color one of the candles & flames die cut from the card front and added it to the envelope. Below it is a strip of the same Hues of Happiness DSP used on the card. It just really brings everything together! This card was inspired by a slimline card I saw on Pinterest, created by Tami White. Remember card cuts are at the bottom of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Double Flap Fun Fold with Abigail Rose 12 x 12

I’ve been playing with the Abigail Rose 12 x 12 DSP that coordinates with the Cottage Rose bundle (10% off when purchasing the bundle!). The bundle includes the fabulous Cottage Flowers Dies. The dies are delicate and beautiful. This DSP and fun fold were super easy to make – like two cards in one. Here’s a peek.

Double Flap Fun Fold w/ Abigail Rose.1

Here’s what it looks like in various open positions.

Double Flap Fun Fold.2
Double Flap Fun Fold.3

Isn’t this fun? Notice the beautiful floral die cut on the front of the card ~ that’s one of the coordinating dies in the Cottage Rose bundle. And the sentiment on the card front comes from the Charming Sentiment bundle and die cut with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes Dies. The flowers were all from the Cottage Rose stamp set and colored with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends. The DSP on the front is Abigail Rose 12 x 12 and colored as the stamped flowers – with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends. Early Espresso ink was used for all stamping. The final addition was three Pearl Basic Jewels.

How to:

  • Prepare the card base (crumb Cake)… 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 2 3/4 & 5 1/2: fold in half & burnish, fold the flap back on itself & burnish
  • Attach all card cuts to each section:
    • Basic White – 2 3/8 x 4 1/8 (2); 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
    • DSP (Abigail Rose) 2 1/2 x 4 (2 coordinating); 4 x 5 14
  • Create the flap fold of the card
    • Crumb Cake – 8 1/2 x 3 1/4, score at 4 1/4
    • Basic White – 3 1/8 x 4 1/8(3) use 2 for stamping and inside of the flap fold
    • DSP – 3 x 4 (This is the section I colored & is called the front of the flap fold)

Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Afternoon DSP B’day

Hello everyone! It’s c-o-l-d here on the Jersey coast – 9 degrees yesterday, 19 today (wow – a heat wave!). I have two cards for you today, both of which are birthday cards using Daffodil Afternoon DSP from Sale-a-bration. It’s a FREE DSP pack when ordering $50 or more.

Daffodil Afternoon DSP.card 1

Notice how on this card more of the daisies show their glory even though there are daffodils in the lower half. Begin by creating the card base: Flirty Flamingo and covering the front with a panel of Daffodil Afternoon DSP that would coordinate with the main front. Then cut a piece of the DSP, cut it in half lengthwise, then take the right piece and cut it in two pieces. You can vary the cuts to suit the design. Adhere this DSP to a panel of Flirty Flamingo, put dimensionals on the back and center it on the card front. For the sentiment panel, I stamped in Memento Black ink on Pale Papaya card stock using the brandy newy Waves of Inspiration stamp set ‘happy birthday’. It is a perfect size for this card. Then I die cut it with one of the Waves Dies and put dimensionals on the back. I slipped a length of the fun Glittered Organdy Ribbon behind the front panel and then through each side of the sentiment banner, securing the ribbon in place with a glue dot on each end. I added three Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels… and the card front was complete.

Daffodil Afternoon DSP.card 2

Card 2 was begun the same as the first. The difference is the front panel was off-set to the top in lieu of center. Also – no ribbon. And the sentiment banner is stamped on Very Vanilla card stock and die cut with Tropical Layers Dies. I’ll be honest, I like the front panel better when it’s centered, but I thought this looks ok. I still included the Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels and like the added sparkle.

The inside of the cards are the same: a stamp from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set was stamped in Pale Papaya ink on the Very Vanilla panel and adhered to the inside of the card. For the envelope, I used the same stamp & ink for the front and more of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP for the flap.

And there you have it… two cards, same DSP, very similar layout/ design. Card cuts will be listed at the end of this post. I hope you like… these cards are definitely a breath of spring – which is right around the corner!

Sale-a-bration is from 4 Jan to 28 Feb ~ that means placing orders during this time can earn you some FREE PRODUCTS. What are you waiting for??? Products 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! Abstract Beauty DSP B’day

Hello Folks! I’ve been knocked sideways by a cold – slept nearly all of Sunday. Made a card for Monday’s post on Monday… here it is almost 4 PM on Monday – so it will go out properly Tuesday morning. 🙂

Abstract Beauty DSP B’day.1

I happen to love plaids and sometimes some of the ‘other sides’ of designer series papers are more appealing to me. The flower patterns are pretty, but this pattern really struck me. This is 4×6 paper to begin with, so I cut it down to 4 x 5 1/4, adhered a Basic White panel to the back for strength then used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to do the work. I used the 4th &n 5th rectangles to cut the plaid panels and saved the border that was removed. You’ll see why soon enough. I stamped the sentiment on a Basic White scrap with balmy Blue ink using the new Artfully Layered stamp set and die cut it with another of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. At this point I adhered the plaid pieces by putting dimensionals on the back and attaching them to a Just Jade card front. The card needed something else. Since I had this new stamp set out, I also pulled the coordinating dies: Tropical Layers Dies and some Pear Pizzazz scrap and cut this fine frond. I adhered it right on the plaid front with dabs of liquid glue, and added all the little die cut pieces too and liked it. The sentiment panel got more dimensionals and was added on. Voila – love the look.

Remember, I saved that plaid piece that was removed when I die cut the rectangles. Here’s what I did with it.

Abstract Beauty DSP B’day.2

I adhered the left-over piece to a panel of Basic White, then stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink. And done… The best part, this could so easily be a masculine card ~ and it’s going to be! I have a twin brother and our birthday is in February, this is for him :O) And since he doesn’t read my blog, I can share it early 👍

The envelope… I used another of the Abstract Beauty 4×6 DSP pieces for the envelope flap; adhered & trimmed to fit. For the front I stamped this interesting word stamp from the Artfully Layered stamp set in Balmy Blue ink.

Abstract Beauty DSP B’day.3
Abstract Beauty B’day.4

Fun! I’m really happy with this card for my brother. It didn’t start out to be for him, but as I moved along, well, it just happened! Now I have to wait to send it… hope it doesn’t get ‘lost in the shuffle’. 🥴

Stampin’ Up! Hey Sports Fan and Sports Event Dies B’day

Hello folks! How’s your day? It’s r-e-a-l-l-y cold here in central Jersey, brrr. Our Christmas decorations are finally down and put away. I resisted for as long as I could :O) Needles, needles everywhere from the tree. I bet I vacuumed at least four times, ‘cuz I kept finding more needles. 🥴 Those are the hazards of a fresh cut tree. And I know that.

Today’s card is for our grandson who turns 14 very soon. He’s a hunk of a young man, 8th grade and I really did NOT know what to do… I looked through the new DSP and found… Hey Sports Fan and made it work. I hope he likes it.

Hey Sports Fan DSP & Sports Event Dies B’day.1

The background DSP is from this Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP. The ‘ticket and flag banner are die cut from one of the papers using the Sports Event Dies. The stars I fussy cut and added Shimmer Crystal Effects for a bit more shine and dimension. You can clearly see I die cut the ticket twice: once from the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP, and the background for that from Night of Navy card stock. I cut the Night of Navy piece in half and adhered it to the Hey There ticket with liquid glue. I added the star with a dimensional once it was dry from the Crystal Effects. The flag banner was die cut from a piece of the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP, then an additional piece was added die cut in Bumblebee card stock, I took the Wink of Stella pen and covered the word with it to extra glam.

Hey Sports Fan DSP & Sports Event Dies.2

I put dimensionals on the back and set it aside. I die cut a strip of stars from another piece of the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 and adhered it to a slightly wider strip of Night of Navy. I stamped the ‘YOU’ using the Slim Slayings stamp set, by just inking the word in Evening Evergreen ink and stamping it on a scrap of Very Vanilla . I fussy cut around it, making it a rectangle. I also used Wink of Stella on the letters to give them more importance.

Time to put this card and it’s parts together…

  • card base is Evening Evergreen 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 14
  • Night of Navy 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
  • Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP 4 x 5 14 adhered to Night of Navy panel. Put dimensionals on the back and add to card base.
  • Adhere the ‘Hey There’ ticket with liquid glue
  • Add the die cut flag banner with dimensionals
  • Add the star strip with liquid glue 1/2″ from bottom
  • Cut a length of Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack in Real red and add to the back of the YOU rectangle. Put dimensionals on the back and add just above the star strip
  • Add three Matte Decorative Dots for more notice. (I just realized these dots are retired as of Jan 4, 2022.)So instead… with Blends, color three Pearl Basic Jewels in Dark Poppy Parade, let dry and add them!
  • Card front is done!
Hey Sorts Fan DSP B’day, inside.3

For the inside, I die cut another flag banner from the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP and adhered it to a Very Vaniila piece 4 x 5 1/4). I stamped the sentiment using the Special Moments stamps set (NEW) making sure to bend it to follow the curve of the flag. This was stamped in Poppy Parade ink. I cut a length of stars from another piece of the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 and adhered it 1/2: from the bottom, then added the panel to the inside of the card. I added another larger fussy cut star (coated in Crystal Shimmery Effects) to the inside of the card, VOILA! the card is done!

For the envelope…

Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP.4

The envelope flap got another piece of Hey Sports FAN 12 x 12 DSP. For the front, I stamped the uber cute sentiment in Poppy Parade ink using the Special Moments stamp set ~ and the card was d-o-n-e… I’m hoping our grandson will like this!

Stampin’ Up! Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves

Good Saturday morning! It’s a beaut here ~ 65 degrees and a bit breezy. The day is new & fresh :O) I just recently posted (Thurs) a card with a fun centerpiece created w/ Blending Brushes & several colors. Because there was some card stock left over I decided to put it to use and created today’s card. Because of the sentiments used, it can so easily be used as a ‘thinking of you card’ as well.

Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves.1

The three squares are some of what’s remaining of the original coloring, and it’s been backed by Brushed Metallic card stock in a coppery look. The leaves were die cut from Gold/ Rose Gold 6×6 using the gold (you can see I left some of the pieces in the leaves – intentionally), Gold foil sheet and a stamped leaf in stamped off Mango Melody. The dies used are Intricate Leaves Dies which coordinates with the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set. The Cajun Craze card stock was run through the Timeworn Word 3D embossing folder and adhered to a Very Vanilla panel and attached to the Cajun craze card base with dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set and stamped on a Very Vanilla scrap with Pumpkin Pie ink then fussy cut & also adhered with dimensionals. The three leaves were glued in place and a glue dot was used to adhere a double strand bow of Linen Thread.

Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves.2

For the inside…. I used stamped off Pumpkin Pie ink for the leaves, sometimes third generation. The splotch was made with Mango Melody ink ~ both from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla. The sentiment is again from Heartfelt Wishes stamp set, stamped in Pumpkin Pie…. and the card was done! Kinda nice having left-over pieces to create a card. :O)

Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves.3


For the envelope I used the same process as the inside of the card… stamped off Pumpkin Pie for the leaves and Mango Melody ink for the splotch – both on a Very Vanilla envelope.

Here is a photo of the ink colors used to create the original panel with the Blending Brushes.

Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves.4

Stampin’ Up! You’re a Peach Birthday

Hello again… the countdown is zero minus 3 days (counting today) til the end of Sale-a-bration. Do you have all those free goodies yet? If not, better order quick. Better yet, have you become a demonstrator yet? Now is the perfect time… $99 to sign up but $125 worth of products PLUS a FREE BUNDLE ~ then as long as you are a demonstrator 20% (or more) off your purchasing price. The list of possible bundles to choose from is at the end of this post. Buy now ~ join now. 👍 you may do that here.

Today’s post is a birthday card – ordered by our daughter. She said she was down to one, could you send some more please? This is the first of the batch.

You’re A Peach Birthday.1

The DSP is You’re a Peach DSP layered on Pale Papaya, then Calypso Coral that was die cut with Stitched Rectangles Dies. And that beautiful spray? It comes from Artistic Dies and Gold/ Rose Gold 6×6 DSP. Isn’t it absolutely gorgeous – the spray & the Gold? I keep forgetting I have it. I kept the card pretty simple – so mailing would be a single stamp. Postage is increasing and that’s a consideration when I make cards for an order. The Calypso Coral panel is on dimensionals. The sentiment comes from Art Gallery stamp set and was stamped in Calypso Coral ink. I added three Metallic Pearls in gold for the final touch.

You’re A Peach Birthday.2

The inside… a background layer of Calypso Coral, then the Basic White stamped layer. Since I had the Art Gallery stamp set available, I stamped the sentiment then a couple of the small flowers, stamped off Calypso Coral for the larger stamp and Pale Papaya for the second or filler stamp. I took a Micron pen and inked around the flower to give it a bit of definition. I like the added touch. I adered the Basic White panel and the card was done!

You’re A Peach Birthday.3

For the envelope, I added a panel of the same You’re a Peach DSP to the flap & trimmed it to fit – and that was it. This is a bright cheery card and puts a smile on my face ~ I hope it does yours as well. I’ll give the product list, then I’ll share the list of bundles you can get – for FREE is you join up now as a demonstrator. I would love to have you on my team 😁
