Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin Leftovers

Sometimes when we make our Paper Pumpkin kits, there are left overs, remains, pieces. Yesterday I was doing a little tidying (and boy did it need it!) and came across the November PP box. Inside were some parts to the kit, not many, but my mind clicked and I made one more Christmas card. Here it is…

November PP leftovers

Recognize those flowers? I really like how this turned out… Crumb Cake card base & layer, ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP, Square Vellum Doilies, the flowers, Cherry Cobbler Linen Thread from the kit, Whisper White banner and the foil sentiment from the kit ~ three major items from the kit made this card! I’m pleased as punch. 😏

I began with the Crumb Cake card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4. I had another piece of Crumb Cake card stock handy (4 x 5 1/4) and ran it through the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it with liquid glue to the card front. Next I took one of the papers in ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP and cut it to a bit larger than the Square Vellum Doily (3 1/4 square). I adhered the vellum to the paper with Stampin Seal. Next I added the two flowers left over from the November Paper Pumpkin kit – on dimensionals, and covered just the flower in Wink of Stella. Between them is a several looped bow using the Cherry Cobbler Linen Thread from the kit, adhered with a glue dot. I cut a Whisper White banner 5/8 x about 4 3/4 and trimmed the ends with the Banner Pick a Punch. To this I added the foil sentiment piece – again from the November PP kit – with tiny dots of liquid glue. The banner was adhered to the flowers with liquid glue. This whole 3 1/4″ square was adhered to the Crumb Cake card with dimensionals – and the front was complete. OH! I did add three Wonderful Gems to the banner :}

Although I forgot to take a picture (and the card is mailed already!) for the inside, I had a panel of Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4 stamped in Just Jade ink with a portion of one of the sentiments from the Joy to the World stamp set from the November Paper Pumpkin kit. This was adhered with liquid glue to the inside of the card. For the envelope, I simply took another piece of the ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP (2 1/2 x 6) and adhered it to the envelope flap & trimmed to fit. I stamped the word ‘Joy’ from the Joy to the World stamp set in Just Jade ink and the card/ envelope were done.

November PP leftovers

Stampin’ Up! Heartwarming Hugs Fun Fold

Hi there! I’ve been mailing catalogs to my customers and including a card with instructions as part of the package. All of a sudden I realized I needed two more… so got busy and created these. I blogged about this fun fold some time ago and you can find that post here.

Heartwarming Hugs Easel card – #1

The directions and card stock cuts are the same, I just used different DSP and I like this too! I’ll list the card stock cuts again for your convenience. 🙂

Products used:

  • Wrapped in Christmas stamp set (circular stamp)
  • Freezin’ Fun stamp set (banner for easel)
  • 1 1/2″ Circle Punch
  • Starburst Punch or 2″ Circle punch
  • Classic Label Punch
  • Heartwarming Hugs DSP
  • Red Foil Sheets
  • Mossy Meadow card stock
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Real Red ink

Card stock cuts:

  • Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4. Make cuts in card front panel to the score line at 1 1/2″ & 4″
  • DSP side strips: ~ (2) 1 3/8 x 4 1/8
  • DSP center panels ~ (2) 2 3/8 x 2
  • Whisper White card stock ~ 3 x 4 1/8 + scraps for circular stamp and banner sentiment
  • Red Foil Sheets – punch 2″ circle

Directions:

  • Prepare card base as described in cardstock cuts
  • Adhere DSP strips to side panels of card front with liquid glue
  • Adhere Whisper White panel to inside card with liquid glue
  • Adhere side panels to card back with liquid glue, overlapping the Whisper White panel
  • Fold the center (loose) panel in half and burnish well
  • Adhere the remaining 2 DSP panels to top & bottom sections just folded in half
  • Stamp banner sentiment (for the easel) in Real Red ink using the Freezin’ Fun stamp set. Punch with the Classic Label Punch. Adhere to a strip of Mossy Meadow 5/8 x 2 ¼. Put dimensionals on back and adhere to the Whisper White panel of the card about ¾” from bottom
  • Stamp circle sentiment using the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set in Real Red ink on Whisper White card stock and punch with 1 ½” circle punch
  • Punch a 2” circle from Red Foil Sheets paper.
  • Adhere stamped circle to this glimmer paper. HINT: suggest using Stampin’ Seal to adhere stamped piece to the foil – no slippage! Put dimensionals on the LOWER HALF of this circle and adhere just at the fold

Your card is complete ~ enjoy!

Heartwarming Hugs Easel card – #2

So I’m curious which card you prefer ~ the DSP combination on the left, or the one on the right? Truly, I can’t decide!

Stampin’ Up! Money or gift card holder

It’s that time of year, isn’t it – for giving gifts of appreciation and thanks. Today’s post shares gift holders I made to hold cash or a check or a gift certificate. If you wanted to use a gift card, it will certainly fit.

Money holder

Aren’t these pretty? Details? Here ya go!

  • Card base… 7 1/4 wide x 7 in height
    • score ON SHORT SIDE @ 1 5/8 & 4 5/8
    • mark the bottom center ON THE LONG SIDE and punch with 3/4″ punch
    • burnish score line
    • adhere tear n tape to the bottom section on the inside to create a pocket
  • Cut and add DSP:
    • 7 x 2 1/4; 7 x 1 3/8 and 7 x 2 3/4 for the back (not shown completed above)
    • the lower panel needs a punch as well – I suggest after adhering, simply use the same punch in the same spot
    • all panels were adhered with liquid glue
  • remove tear n tape covering and adhere the lower section to the middle and voila!
Money holder – #3

All you need to do now is a belly band…

  • card stock 1 x about 6- 61/4
    • beginning at the back of the envelope, wrap the strip around to the front so the lower portion of the strip is under the upper portion of the strip. I tried to make the upper strip meet at the edge of tghe upper strip.
    • Adhere the two ends together with liquid glue. Once good and dry, remove the band, burnish the folds and decorate.

Each sentiment panel width and length varied depending on the sentiment used. I embellished with a punched image or a die cut image then adhered that to the strip and the strip adhered to the band, covering the area where the two ends meet. Make sense?

Starting with the top pocket hold, here are the various products used:

  • Pretty Peacock card stock for the base, covered with Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP. The sentiment panel is Very Vanilla card stock using the Christmas Gleaming stamp set for the sentiment and the ornament. The ornament was punched with the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack. Pretty Peacock ink. The banner was trimmed on the end with the Banners Pick a Punch.
  • #2 pocket holder begins with Pacific Point card stock covered with the Snowflake Splendor DSP. The sentiment panel is Whisper White card stock stamped with the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Pacific Point ink. The snowflake was first stamped with a snowflake in Pacific Point ink on Whisper White card stock from the same stamp set then die cut with the So Many Snowflake Dies.
  • #3 pocket holder begins with Highland Heather card stock covered with another piece of this fabulous Snowflake Splendor DSP. The sentiment panel is Whisper White card stock stamped with a sentiment from Christmas Gleaming stamp set in Pacific Point ink. The snowflake is Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper die cut with So Many Snowflake Dies.

And there you have it – a great project that doesn’t take a huge chunk of time and is beautiful to give and receive! Products used for today’s project may be found below. As a thank you to my customers, when the order is between $50-$150 I offer a SU! item of your choice valued at $10. Remember to use MY CURRENT HOST CODE SAZV3JTK– good until Jan 3.

Stampin’ Up Wrapped in Christmas Easel Card

So sorry for the late post – hubby and I bought a fresh cut tree yesterday and it was extra heavy- it took both of us to carry it in and get it set up. Then lights, etc…. No, not done yet; hubby is still working on the lights. I’ll share a picture Monday as we won’t get it done until late Sunday afternoon. 🌲🎄🤶🏻

Such fun making this card… an easel card – which I haven’t made in some time. One of my teammates sent an easel card and I was inspired to create several.

Wrapped in Christmas with Snowflake Splendor Easel card – #1

I love the bling from the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper. Hear are details on how to do this…

  • Cardstock base is 8 1/2 x 11, scored at 4 1/4 (this happens to be Misty Moonlight, but I also used Pacific Point card stock which coordinates with the DSP. When I used Pacific Point card stock, I also used Pacific Point ink.
  • Use your paper trimmer to make two cuts JUST TO THE SCORE LINE on the card front: 1 1/2 & 4
  • Fold the center portion in half and burnish well with your bone folder. This becomes the stand up on the card.
  • Cut 2 strips of Snowflake Splendor DSP and adhere with liquid glue to the side panels
  • Cut 2 additional panels of coordinating Snowflake Splendor DSP and adhere with liquid glue to the center folded panel, one piece above the fold, the other below it. NOTE: I think it looks best if these pieces are cut so the pattern on the DSP matches top to bottom panels
  • Cut a panel of Whisper White and adhere to the INSIDE of the card, centering
  • Adhere side panels to card base with liquid glue.
  • Stamp the sentiment from Freezin’ Fun stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on Whisper White. Punch out with the Classic Label Punch. Adhere to a strip of Misty Moonlight with liquid glue. Put dimensionals on back and adhere to the Whisper White panel, about 3/4″ from bottom. This creates the easel :O) and allows the upper panel to stand up.
  • Punch a starburst with the Starburst Punch (OOPS! retired item 😞)and Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper
  • Stamp the sentiment from Wrapped in Christmas in Misty Moonlight ink and punch with the 1 1/2″ circle punch. Adhere to the Glimmer paper. NOTE: by scrapping some of the ‘glimmer’ away the paper will adhere more readily. Add liquid glue to that area and bingo, the sentiment adheres.
  • Put dimensionals ON THE LOWER HALF of the Glimmer Paper and attach to the lower center panel near the fold line. Because the lower sentiment is on dimensionals, this allows the upper portion of the card to ‘stand’.
Wrapped in Christmas with Snowflake Splendor Easel Card – #2

I have made several of these, which I don’t usually do, but they were fun and easy and look pretty neat. Notice how the color variations in the DSP make the cards look so different. Hope you enjoyed this design. Card cuts will be listed at the end of this post. Let me know if you have questions.

Card cuts:

  • Card base: 8 1/2 x 11, scored at 4 1/4: top of the card cut to score line at 1 1/2″ and 4″
  • DSP strips for side panels- 1 3/8 x 4 1/8 (cut 2)
  • DSP panels for folded area – 2 3/8 x 2 (cut 2)
  • Whisper White – 3 x 4 1/4 + banner sentiment + circle sentiment
  • Misty Moonlight / Pacific Point for sentiment banner 2 1/4 x 5/8
  • Glimmer paper – use circle dies for 1 3/4 or slightly larger frame for circle sentiment

Thanks for stopping by.

May you have a beautiful day.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Tags w/ Scraps

Wow – Christmas is just around the corner… are you ready? I’m getting there, making tags right now for presents hubby & I will deliver. Christmas together with extended family will have to wait until next year. It will be better than ever, just by being together. So not complaining, just wistful I guess.

I tend to keep scraps from various Designer Series Papers and it was kinda fun mixing and matching.

It the far left picture, I used papers from a couple of different sources: ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP, green plaid & red tree; Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP. The stamped sentiment is from the new Many Messages stamp set & Messages Dies (available to customers Jan 5, 2021: the ‘Merry Christmas’ is from Perfectly Plaid stamp set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.

In the far right photo, Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP was used on both tags, along with more of the Tis The Season 6×6 DSP and tags from the new Many Messages stamp set & Messages Dies.

I began with Whisper White card stock cut 2″ wide and 5 1/4″ in length. The tops were punched using the Fancy Tag Topper punch and the bottoms using the Triple Banner Punch, which shortened them some; ribbons were Metallic Edge Ribbon in Silver plus All The Trimmings Ribbon Combo Pack in Poppy Parade. The DSP used were already in strips of various widths, I just used what was on hand, never measuring, sorry, and layered. The trees were punched using the Pine Tree Punch and sentiments are all on dimensionals. Star Elements were added to the trees. The back of the tags were left plain to write ‘To and From’. Products may be found later in this post 😁

Stampin’ Up! Packaging with Designer Series Paper

Oh I DID have fun yesterday ya’ll. I wrapped packages! They are prayer books for a group of folks that walk beside another when they are ‘hurting’, when they are in need of comfort, when they need to hear God loves them and we, as people, do too. The group is called Stephen Ministry and everyone is specially trained to listen. That’s the hardest thing in the world for everyone… it seems we always have an opinion. so in Stephen Ministry we don’t do opinions: we listen, intentionally listen. And these sweet packages are for those Stephen Ministers.

The packaging… I used Trimming The Town Designer Series Paper and I’m really pleased with how they turned out. I made the packaging like an envelope.

Packaging with DSP

Pictures don’t do these items justice – in person they are cute, cute. The above package uses Trimming The Town DSP, Diagonal Stripe Ribbon in Old Olive, So Many Snowflakes Dies, Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems and one Glitter Star Ornaments. Stampin’ Up! makes a list on their DSP packaging, of all the coordinating colors for that particular design. It makes it so much easier to make a card – or in this case, a package, look marvelous.

Let me share with you how I did this…

Packaging with DSP

This is the inside and it’s all trimmed of the excess paper. You can see at the far right and at the bottom, the Tear n Tape used for sealing. I used the Detailed Trio Punch to round the edges of the top & bottom flaps. This makes a perfect envelope for the book. Measurements vary for your own book; for this one it’s 10″ wide x 9 1/4″ in height.

  • Score at the top 1 3/8″
  • Score at the bottom 3/8″ & 1″
  • Score the sides at 2 3/4″ & 7″
  • I then laid my book on the score lines, wrapped each side over the book and gently pressed with my bone folder to create the depth for the book and another score line. The reason for this process is the depth of the book did not fall into a score line and I wanted the book to fit snugly, not be moving around.
  • Burnish all score lines then trim as shown above.
  • Once you have trimmed, put the book back on the DSP, remove the Tear n Tape and wrap the right side over the left to seal.
  • Fold in the short tabs at the bottom, remove the Tear n Tape and fold over the book. :O) A perfect envelope…. the book can be pulled out with ease as the top is not sealed. The ribbon keeps the package closed.
  • Decorate with ribbon and embellishments to your hearts content.

Below is a list of all the products I used for my packaging – and remember what today is… 24 HOUR SALE on nearly all products in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. Some of the products listed below are not in the Annual Catalog, but many are. Happy Shopping!

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Fun Fold

Hello! It’s MONDAY, start of a new week – woohoo! Special plans/ opportunities/ or challenges set for yourself? I’m excited about sharing today’s project with you. I have created other Poinsettia Petals cards but not with watercolor. And that’s what I have done for today – watercolor… One of the things I have learned in this card making process, is it doesn’t have to be complicated to be beautiful. This card is not complicated, a bit time consuming maybe, but easy to break up into portions to keep the process moving along. I don’t do watercoloring nearly often enough and maybe this creation will get me back to it – as I enjoyed it quite a lot. Here’s my card…

Poinsettias Fun Fold – #1

Isn’t this pretty? I love the layers and the In Good Taste DSP creates a wonderfully simple background to show off this flower.

Process & Details…

  • First we stamp the three poinsettia petals & at least three holly leaves using Versamark ink on the Watercolor Paper – yep, Poinsettia Petals stamp set. And yes, do clean the paper by swiping it with the embossing buddy first. Swish in Gold Embossing Powder and heat set with your heat gun.
  • Watercolor using the new Water Painters: Cherry Cobbler ink & Real Red ink for the poinsettia petals; Old Olive ink and Garden Green ink for the holly leaves. I like to stamp my ink pad on an acrylic block and using my Water Painter add a bit of water, creating the depth of color I want. Begin with the lighter shade and add the darker. My poinsettias/ leaves turned out a bit lighter than I like but they are still beautiful. Set aside to dry.
  • Cut Crumb Cake card stock for the card base 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Cover with In Good Taste DSP 4 x 5 1/4 using liquid glue.
  • Cut another Crumb cake panel 3 1/2 x 8 1/2, scoring at 4 1/4. Adhere to the center of the card base panel with liquid glue. Adhere another panel of In Good Taste DSP to this folded front panel 3 1/4 x 4.
  • The watercolored Poinsettia Petals pieces should all be dry now, so die cut those with the Poinsetttia Dies.
  • Die cut at least three berry sprigs from the Poinsettia Dies from Brushed Metallic Paper in Gold.
  • Curl the poinsettia petals with a bone folder (the watercolor paper allows this beautifully) and put together with dimensionals. Adhere the beautiful Beaded Pearls element to the center.
  • Adhere this poinsettia to the card front with liquid glue and add the holly leaves & berry die cuts to suit you. Yes, I did curl the leaves also, and I pulled up the berries a bit once dry. I love this three-dimensional look!
  • Stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink to a strip of Whisper White card stock and fussy cut. The sentiment comes from this wonderful Poinsettia Petals stamp set. Curl with the bone folder so the center is raised and each end as well. Double the dimensionals for the center of the sentiment and adherer with liquid glue just before the end curl and the card front is done!
  • Cut a panel of Whisper White card stock 3 1/4 x 4, stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink – again with a sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set. Stamp the pine bow in Garden Green ink – and yes, it is from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set.
  • Adhere another panel of In Good Taste DSP (2 1/4 x 6) to the envelope flap and trim to fit. Stamp the pine bow over it in Garden Green ink. Also stamp the pine bow on the envelope front.

And here’s another photo as well

Poinsettia Petals Fun Fold #4

What a fun card! I MUST get back to doing more watercoloring… I really enjoy making Christmas cards, but soon I must stop ~ too many, too many… Guess I can resort to doing some fun tags for Christmas – yes! Perhaps that’s what I’ll do :O)

You will find the product list below. Please feel free to ask questions, either via this post or my email… tlsbrightspot@gmail.com. Thanks for being a customer! As a thank you I offer with a $50 – $150 purchase a SU! item valued at $10 – your choice of item! Please use my current HOST CODE XS4MSSFN when ordering now through Nov 18 to receive your free item.

Stampin’ Up! So Many Snowflakes Dies & Snow Wonder

Hello there! Today’s card features the extra gorgeous So Many Snowflakes Dies and I paired it with Snow Wonder stamp set for the sentiment on the front. What was extra fun was using the new SU! Blending Brushes ~ they are wonderful!!! And… they come in a 3-pack – eeeee. For some reason I cannot get my computer to allow me to share a photo of the brushes – but they are awesome… and will be available in the upcoming Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.

Now – to the card… here’s a sneak peek…

So Many Snowflakes Dies & Snow Wonder – #1

The how to :O)…

  • Die cut the largest snowflake from Whisper White card stock using the So Many Snowflakes Dies
  • Using that panel and one of the new Blending Brushes, tap the brush in Balmy Blue ink and blend the color, creating a shadow of snowflakes on the 4 x 5 1/4 panel of Whisper White card stock. Continue to cover, moving the snowflake ‘stencil’ around so there are several shadows on the panel. It should look something like this. Notice there are varying shades of the Balmy Blue ink.
So Many Snowflake Dies ‘stenciled’ panel #2
  • Cut an Adhesive Sheet to 4 x 5 1/4, peel the backing and adhere to a panel of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White card stock
  • Die cut several snowflakes of varying sizes using the So Many Snowflakes Dies and the Whisper White card stock with the Adhesive Sheet on it.
  • Remove the backing on the die cut snowflakes one at a time as you lay them on the ‘shadowed’ card front
  • Stamp the sentiment using the Snow Wonder stamp set in Balmy Blue ink on a 1 x 4 strip of Whisper White
  • Adhere this to a 1 1/4 x 4 strip of Balmy Blue card stock
  • Adhere the sentiment panel to the card front using dimensionals
  • Die cut yet another snowflake, this time from the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper – love this paper! Adhere to the sentiment panel with a couple of dots of liquid glue.
  • Add some glittery Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems to several of the snowflakes
  • Adhere this panel to the Balmy Blue card base (4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2) and the card front is done.
So Many Snowflakes Dies & Snow Wonder – #3

The inside & the envelope…

You can see in the photo above and below that I used one of the die cut ‘outlines’ as a stencil, the Blending Brush and Balmy Blue ink. I did this on the envelope front and on the envelope flap. I also did it on the 4 x 5 1/4 panel of Whisper White for the inside of the card. Then I adhered one of the leftover die cut snowflakes that had adhesive on the back and placed it over one of the snowflakes stenciled on the panel. I liked the effect this created. This panel was adhered to the inside of the card base and voila…

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly

Hello again! Today’s card is another Christmas card. Somehow I can’t quit making them ~ it’s one of my favorite times of year. So, here we go… this was a CASE of a card made by Amy Koenders.

Joyful Holly ~ #1

Isn’t this cheerful? Here are the details…

  • The card base is Thick Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Layer a panel of Tis The Season 6×6 DSP 3 3/4 x 5. I adhered mine to the far left for a bit of a different look – yep, liquid glue is my ‘go to’.
  • Cut a banner in Garden Green card stock 1 5/8 x 5 and punch a banner end with the Triple Banner Punch. Adhere to the card front with liquid glue
  • Cut another length, this time in Whisper White 2 x 5. Stamp the images using the Jolly Holly stamp set in Garden Green ink. Stamp the inner pattern for the holly in Garden Green ink as well. Stamp the berries in Real Red ink. Trim the end using the same Triple Banner Punch. Adhere to the card front with liquid glue.
  • Cut another strip, this time in Pear Pizzazz card stock 1 x 3 1/2. Trim both ends with the very fun Banner Pick a Punch. Adhere with liquid glue.
  • Using the 2″ Circle Punch and Shaded Spruce card stock, punch a circle :O)
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Jolly Holly stamp set in Garden Green ink on a panel of Whisper White. Punch it out using the Everyday Label Punch. Adhere this to the circle with liquid glue.
  • Adhere the circle & sentiment to the card front with dimensionals.
  • Add a fun bow using the Snowflake Splendor Ribbon. This adds a nice sparkle to the card.
  • Add the red elements from the All The Trimmings Embellishments and your card front is done.

For the inside…

Joyful Holly inside – #2

I love the simplicity of the inside of this card. It uses the same stamp as the front, but no filler stamp – just the outline – and gives the holly branch a totally different look.

  • Stamp the outline image of the holly using the Joyful Holly stamp set in Garden Green ink on a panel of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White card stock.
  • Stamp the sentiment, also from the Joyful Holly stamp set in
    Garden green ink
  • Adhere the panel to the inside of the card base with liquid glue and your card is complete. YAY!

I love this card, it is bright and cheerful, friendly. Let’s take another peek at the card front.

Joyful Holly #3
