Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Place

Hi stamping friends. It’s Sunday and Labor Day weekend. Are planning on a picnic with friends? Just be safe, ok. Sometimes things can get out of hand… so be cool and have fun.

Today’s card using DSP as the focus. As a matter of fact, no die cuts, no stamping either. Here it is…

Peaceful Place.1

Peaceful Place Specialty DSP is absolutely stunning and it shows off all by itself. This card is made from two different patterns from the pack. Are those trees cute or what?! The tree panel is 2 1/8 wide by 4 tall and the Silver Foil Specialty DSP paper panel behind it is 2 1/4 x 4 1/8. Before I go any further, let me tell you about this Specialty Pack of foils. There are three 12 x 12 sheets in the pack: one is bright silver, the next is darker silver and the other sheet is darker yet. And they are brushed, not plain. This is the medium, which is hard to discern in the photo. The large panel is 4 x 5 1/4 – a standard size, and mounted on a piece of Black Glitter Paper. Black Glitter Paper is pretty cool paper and I don’t like to waste it, so I removed the center of it for later use. You can seer the back side in the next photo.

Peaceful Place.2

You can also see that I mounted the Peaceful Place DSP with Basic White card stock for strength, then wrapped the Black Glittered Organzas Ribbon around it. I mounted the tree panel onto the larger panel with dimensionals. I wanted a greeting and pullerd out the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set, stamped it in Versamark ink on a basic White scrap, sprinkled it with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set it. I then fussy cut the sentiment and cut it apart. Dimesnionals were placed under the left end and liquid glue to the right end of the sentiment & put in place. The single word (TIME) was added with liquid glue and the card front was done. Oh yes, the card base is Basic Black card stock 🙂

Peaceful Place, inside

The rest of the sentiment is on the inside! And I added it to a piece of the same Silver Foil Specialty Pack paper that I used on the front. This was added to a slightly larger piece of Basic Black then into the inside of the card. I hope you can see a bit of shading on the inside… it’s with a Blending Brush & Basic. Gray ink – very lightly brushed so it’s not so stark.

Peaceful Place.4

I did a special creation on the envelope flap… :O) First I used Balmy Blue ink and the Blending Brush to blend color on the Basic White panel. I then added a bit of the Basic Gray ink and did the same. I then lightly spritzed the paper with water, holding the paper a good 12″ away, sprinkled it with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set it. The trick is not to get too much water on the paper ~ but it creates a cool effect. The reason I did this is I wanted to carry over the silver look of the DSP without using DSP. This was something I read on Pinterest as an idea to try but I do not have the persons name so cannot give credit. But this is something I will definitely try again. The panel was added to the envelope flap and trimmed to fit.

Peaceful Place.5

For the front of the envelope I had this small piece of DSP, trimmed it down a bit and added it with liquid glue. Now it’s done!

Stampin’ Up! Tidings and Trimmings Greetings

Hi everyone ~ how’s your Saturday? It’s another cool morning here on the East coast AND it’s also Labor day weekend! Being a Shore Community we get lots of traffic and it began in earnest pretty early in the day. We were out in our little 16′ sailboat when a wall of Cigarette boats came screaming toward us. This type of boat is obnoxiously loud, so much so that earplugs should probably be used ~ and when 25 come, well, it’s less than nice. Just sayin’, it would be good if we could outlaw them on our little river.

The card today is yet another Christmas card and made with the Tidings & Trimmings bundle (Christmas Trimmings Dies).

Tidings & Trimmings Greetings.1

What do you think? Rather striking isn’t it? The Gold foil & Very Vanilla card stock make a nice contrast. Here’s what I did…

  • On a Very vanilla panel I used one of the Blending Brushes and Sahara Sand ink to create a soft background
  • I used my Sahara Sand Marker to splatter some color all over the panel. This is done with the large tip end being flicked downward against the cap of the marker. It makes little dots, splatters, and you control how much is on the paper.
  • I layered this to a piece of Evening Evergreen card stock just slightly larger.
  • I die cut the star from a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and the star overlay from Gold foil. These were adhered together with dots of liquid glue. I put dimensionals on the back and set it aside.
  • I had a 1/2″ strip of Tidings & Trimmings 6×6 DSP, some Scalloped Lace Trim and a 1/4″ strip of Cherry Cobbler that I layered together and added to the card front with liquid glue.
  • I attached the star off-center with the dimensionals.
  • I stamped the leaves on Very Vanilla scraps: Evening Evergreen ink & Soft Succulent ink with the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set & die cut them with the Christmas Trimmings Dies.
  • I die cut several holly leaves from more of the Gold foil and a couple of small stars – yep, using the Christmas Trimmings Dies.
  • I also die cut the berries from Real Red card stock and a leaf bunch from Evening Evergreen card stock with more dies from the Christmas Trimmings Dies.
  • I layered these as you see them, with liquid glue
  • Finally, I stamped the word Greetings on a small strip of Very Vanilla card stock and trimmed it, added dimensionals on the back and attached it under the ribbon.
  • This entire panel was attached to the Thick Very vanilla card base with dimensionals. It COULD be adhered flat against the card stock if you wanted to do so.
Tidings & Trimmings Greetings, inside

The inside got a stamp with Evening Evergreen ink using the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set – and that was it. The Very Vanilla panel was added to the inside of the card. I must say, this looks a bit plain to me. I will probably add some of the same treatment as the front of the card: Blending Brush with Sahara Sand ink and then splatter with the Sahara Sand marker.

Tidings & Trimmings Greetings.3

The envelope got some special treatment with the Gold embossing on the front: stamp in Versamark ink, sprinkle Gold Embossing Powder over it, then heat set. The envelope flap is covered with the same Tidings & Trimmings 6×6 DSP as is used on the card front. Done!

Hope you like… this was fun to do, mixing & matching, coordinating card stocks that work so easily together and just one bundle! This is such a versatile set ~ I would love to see what you do with it. How about a card NOT a Christmas card using this bundle? Could you do that?

Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember and Majestic Mountain

Wow ~ it is Sep 1!!! I can’t believe it… where DID the summer go? Are your kids ready for school? And wonder what school is going to look like? Nearly everywhere I go folks are wearing masks again… and I don’t go a lot of places: grocery store, Costco, church, like that. I haven’t been “shopping” in quite a while. And then there’s Ida – a really big hurricane.; and Afghanistan… ugh… my heart does ache for all these people & the situations of the world. Sending up prayers of comfort, peace, resolution, patience ~ you get it. I think most of you are with me on this.

OK ~ today’s card 😜. Let me tell you what I did… I went looking in the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog for a bit of inspiration, and found it! The DSP used here is Peaceful Place SDSP. It is gorgeous! I also used Majestic Mountain Dies and the Christmas To Remember stamp set. That’s why this post is called Mixing & Matching :)

Mixing & Matching.1

Crumb Cake card stock is the card base. I adhered a panel of Peaceful Place DSP to Basic Gray card stock and wrapped it twice around with Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack – basically the Black & White Bakers Twine, and tied a bow. I mounted these two to the card base with dimensionals. I pulled out another panel of the Peaceful Place DSP, die cut two trees using the Majestic Mountain Dies. I backed one of the trees, slightly off-set, with a Basic White panel after die cutting the filigree- type tree from Majestic Mountain Dies. I adhered this die cut DSP to a piece of Granny Apple Green card stock, put dimensionals on the back and centered it over the other panels. I stamped the word ‘merry’ from the Christmas To Remember stamp set with VersaMark ink onto a Basic White scrap. I sprinkled it with silver embossing powder & heat set it. Once it was cool, I die cut with the Messages Die. (This is a big die, but I used only a scrap on which to stamp and die cut just the banner I wanted.) I added the banner to the card front with more dimesnionals. For a final touch I added two Silver Epoxy Essentials to the top of the trees ~ and the card front was done.

Mixing & Matching.2

For the inside, I took the same stamp and stamped with VersaMark ink, the ‘merry christmas’ then sprinkle it with silver embossing powder & heat set it. I had this tree that was removed from the Peaceful Place DSP (yep, from the card front, adhered it to another tree die cut from Basic White and put it on the panel. And one more Silver Epoxy Essentials was added to the top of the tree. I adhered the Basic White panel to Basic Gray card stock then added it to the inside of the card. Voila!

For the envelope, more of the same Peaceful Place DSP was added to the envelope flap & trimmed to fit. For the front, there was this extra tree die cut from the DSP for the card front. I added it to the front of the envelope with liquid glue ~ and it was finis…

Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Bundle.2

It’s Tuesday – and the week is on! A couple of days ago I posted a card with a layout that I really liked and decided to take advantage of that design. Here’s the card… and you can see the post here.

Today’s card is this… same layout but using the Whimsy & Wonder DSP as the focus.

Whimsical Trees Bundle.2

The Designer Series Paper is adhered to Mint Macaron then popped up on dimensionals and added to the Blushing Bride card base. I then die cut a banner in Mossy Meadow card stock using the Potted Succulents Dies. I used Seal+ on the back of the banner to twist around some of the Silver cord in the Simply Elegant Trim, then added dimensionals to that and put it on the card front. I stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink on a piece of Blushing Bride card stock and die cut it with another of the dies in the Potted Succulents Dies. This strip also got dimensionals then centered on the Mossy Meadow banner ~ and the card front was done.

Whimsical Trees Bundle.2

For the inside I stamped another sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on a piece of Blushing Bride, die cut it with the Potted Succulents Dies and added it to the Basic White panel. I already had on my desk these two trees, stamped & die cut from the Whimsical Trees stamp set & Christmas Trees Dies (Mossy Meadow ink), so adhered them to the panel too. This was added to another panel of Mint Macaron card stock then into the card ~ and voila!

For the envelope I added the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to the envelope flap and trimmed it to fit. On the front I stamped the holly flourish from Whimsical Trees stamp set in VersaMark ink, then sprinkled it with silver embossing powder & heat set it. I colored it with markers… Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride. In retrospect, the banner on the card front should have been done the same – VersaMark then silver embossing powder – I just may have to change that! For now – this is it though… Funny how things look so different in a photo and I can see how it should be changed. :] This DSP is just stunning. And this is the first I have used the holly flourish – it’s stunning and very clear in the embossing powder.

Stampion’ Up! Tidings and Trimmings Bundle

Good Sunday morning to you! Today’s card is a bit on the monochromatic side using Soft Succulent. This is such a pretty shade of green… I just may have gone too far with it.

Tidings & Trimmings Bundle.1

from I really like the look of the Stitched Greenery Die. I used a full 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 panel of Soft Succulent card stock to run it through the die cut machine, then adhered it directly to the Soft Succulent card base. I then took another piece of Soft Succulent card stock, stamped it in Versamark ink using the Poinsettia Petals stamp set, sprinkled it with White embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool. I die cut it with the Picture This Dies, put it on dimensionals and added it to the card front. Gold Holly Leaves – a stunning embellishment, were added with mini dimensionals, then Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels were placed on the sentiment panel. I had in my stash, this super cute stocking, stamped on Basic White card stock with Soft Succulent ink (Tidings & Trimmings), then die cut with the Christmas Trimmings Dies. I added this to the card with dimensionals, then tied a bow with the Simply Elegant Trim in Gold and added it with a glue dot. I thought the stocking could use a bit of the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels, so did that too.

Tidings & Trimmings Bundle.2

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Soft Succulent, then added another of the Gold Holly Leaves with liquid glue, then one single Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. The Basic White panel was added to the inside of the card with liquid glue – and finis… the card was done.

For the Basic White Medium Envelope, I ran the flap through the Stitched Greenery Embossing Folder by folding the rest of the envelope over the die. Looks great doesn’t it? I love how it coordinates the card & envelope! For the front of the card, I stamped the stocking in soft Succulent ink, stamping off first – and yes, using the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set.

I really like the simplicity of this layout – and it can be done in so many ways: DSP in lieu of the die cut background, of course various sentiments and different embellishments. I really want to play with this layout more!

Stampin’ Up! Cathedral Window Christmas

Hi folks – it’s Friday and a bit of a heart-wrenching day in the aftermath of killings in Afghanistan. I want to say AAARGH! as Snoopy does in the daily funnies. Power. Control. Over others. It’s just not right… Prayers of peace & comfort to all those affected in this terrible tragedy.

What’s our card for today? A Cathedral window card, which I haven’t made before this… and it was pretty easy and I like the end result.

Cathedral Window Christmas.1

The colors in this are pretty soft: Mint Macaron and Sahara Sand with a bit of White. Here’s what I did…

  • Die cut a circle approximately 1 1/2″. I used the Circle Dies for this.
  • Cut a square, approximately 1″. I used my paper trimmer.
  • Put the square inside the circle and fold over the edges of the circle. Remove the square. And that’s it to make the cathedral window! But here’s a tip or two…
    • Placing the square to align with the inside image is important. If you want the image straight (as I did with this one), using your grid paper to make certain it’s ‘square’ really works!
    • Using DSP that is double sided and has small images is even better. Here I used the Peaceful Prints DSP which is a FREE product with a $50 order as part of Sale-a-bration. More on that later in the post 🙂

I placed but did not adhere the cathedral window pieces to determine where to stamp the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment from Perfectly Plaid stamp set in VersaMark ink, them embossed with white embossing powder & heat set it with my heat tool. Once that was cool & not tacky I then ran the Mint Macaron panel through the Bark 3D Embossing Folder. Boy am I glad I have this EF – I use it a LOT. The cathedral windows were adhered with liquid glue, then the Mint Macaron panel was adhered to a Basic White piece with liquid glue. I then punched the sides to create a place for the Linen Thread & Simply Elegant Trim in Silver to remain in place. These were wrapped around the two panels and tied in a bow. This entire panel was added to the Sahara Sand Card base with dimensionals. To complete the front I added three Opal Rounds.

Cathedral Window Christmas.2, inside

For the inside I stamped the sentiment in Sahara Sand ink using another stamp in the Perfectly Plaid stamp set. use my Stamparatus a lot too as I can re-stamp when necessary and align perfectly straight. I added more of the same Peaceful Prints DSP to the bottom of the Basic White panel and adhered it to the inside of the card. DONE!

The envelope got more of the same Peaceful Prints DSP to the envelope flap & trimmed to fit. For the front I stamped the tree from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Mint Macaron ink. Another Christmas card for the pile :O)

Stampin’ Up! Penguin Playmates

Happy Sunday! Hurricane Henri dumped 2 1/2″ of rain on us last night but the winds were not so bad… thank goodness. More rain is due today so we’ll need to check our little sailboat as soon as it stops – and then pump like crazy 🙂 Ah, the pleasures of owning a boat 😏

My card today is super simple… very little stamping and a bit of fussy cutting cuteness using the Penguin Playmates DSP. And the best part about this paper – it’s FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 order! WooHoo!!

Penguin Playmates DSP.1

So what’s cut out? The penguin, the snowman, the fox and oh yes, the little bird. The background is a piece of Basic White run through the Bark 3D Embossing Folder – to make it look as though it’s a snow storm 🙂 The striped paper is also a piece of the Penguin Playmates DSP. The banner is stamped using the Tiding & Trimmings stamp set and Fresh Freesia ink. The banner ends were created with the Banners Pick a Punch. The card base is also Fresh Freesia.

For the inside…

Penguin Playmates.2

I decided against a sentiment – a simple fussy cut fox did the trick for me.

For the envelope front, another fussy cut penguin. For the back, more Penguin Playmates DSP and trimmed to fit. Fun card and super easy and the products were primarily free. How great is that! More info below about how you can get this FREE product.

Stampin’ Up! More Whimsy

Hello friends! Hurricane Henri is headed to the Northeast this weekend… it doesn’t look as though it will be too bad here but we will still stack our patio chairs and bring in cushions ~ it can change in a heartbeat.

I’ve used another new product today from the Whimsy Suite of productsthe Wonderful Snowflakes. Gosh they are delicate and pretty. I also used another pattern of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP and Whimsy Dies. I’m enjoying this set very much.

More Whimsy.1

Here’s the how to:

  • Misty Moonlight is the card base
  • The next layer is a Smoky Slate panel run through the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder, adhered directly to the card base.
  • I took a piece of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP in Misty Moonlight and adhered it to a Basic White panel, wrapped it with a length of Metallic Mesh Ribbon that I scrunched together and attached in back with Stampin’ Seal. I put dimensionals on the back and added it to the card.
  • I die cut a snowflake from Silver Foil using the So Many Snowflake Dies, added a dimensional to it and attached it to the beautiful Wonderful Snowflake. I put another dimensional on the back of this snowflake and added it to the card front.
  • Finally – I added several Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials in Silver to the card to make it look like nice wet snowflakes. 🙂

For the inside…

More Whimsy.2, inside

Super duper simple…I had two leftover trees cut in Shimmer Paper using the Whimsy Dies ~ attached them to the Basic White panel with liquid glue. This was added to another Smoky Slate panel & adhered to the inside of the card. Done!

No sentiment on this card at all – intentionally. This could so easily be a sympathy card, birthday card, thinking of you card, thank you card, masculine card, or a Christmas card ~ all with a wintry look. I’ll add the sentiment when it’s needed.

For the envelope…

More of the same Whimsy & Wonder DSP on the flap trimmed to fit. For the front I stamped snowflakes in Misty Moonlight ink with the Snowflake Wishes stamp set.

Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Bundle

WooHoo, it’s Friday! That means the weekend is almost here. What’s on that calendar of yours? This weekend is a birthday weekend for our daughter. I hope she has a very special day! Unfortunately we won’t be getting together b ut we D”ID send her a fun package, and of course we’ll call, do a facetime or something. All that has nothingb to do with today’s card though… 🙂

Whimsical Trees Bundle.1

Another Christmas card using the Christmas Tree Dies as the focus. Isn’t this tree just the cutest? And those stars are from this die set as well. Love! For the sentiment banners, both of which are on dimensionals, I used the Whimsical Trees stamp set but die cut them with the Messages Dies – clever, right?

Here’s what I did:

  • Layer the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to the Mint Macaron card base, covering the entire front
  • Cut another panel of the same Whimsy & Wonder DSP and layer on a Gold Foil sheet. TIP: I find when layering on foil it is better with Stampin’ Seal or Seal +. Put dimensionals on the back of this panel & set aside.
  • Die cut the trees using Shimmer Paper and the Christmas Tree Dies (from the Whimsical Trees Bundle)
  • Die cut the stars using Gold Foil and Christmas Tree Dies. Adhere these to each tree with a very small dot of glue on the star. TIP: putting the glue on the star helps to keep you from using too much glue 🙂
  • Adhere each tree to the card front with liquid glue
  • Stamp the sentiments (on Shimmer Paper), first in Mint Macaron ink, then VersaMark ink; sprinkle with Clear Embossing powder & heat set
  • Die cut the sentiments using the Messages Die, put on dimensionals and add to the card front
  • For a final touch, add the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels in Evening Evergreen
  • Now add this panel to the card front
Whimsical Trees Bundle.2

For the inside… super easy

  • Cover the inside of the card with more of the same Whimsy & Wonder DSP
  • On a piece of Basic White, stamp the ornaments in Memento ink – these come from none other than the Whimsical Trees stamp set! Color using Stampin Blends: Mint Macaron, Lt Daffodil Delight, Lt Real Read & Bronze
  • Stamp the sentiment in Mint Macaron ink – also from Whimsical Trees stamp set
  • Adhere the panel to the inside of the card & voila – all done.

For the envelope:

  • Cover the flap with more of the same Whimsy & Wonder DSP, trim to fit
  • For the front, stamp this adorable tree with Mint Macaron ink – from the Whimsical Trees stamp set

This bundle has so many possibilities, I can’t believe I hesitated to purchase it. I had a really good time using this set and there are many more stamps & dies in this set I haven’t used 🥴
