SU! Freezin’ Friends Dies & Curvy Stamps

Hello there… it’s Sunday and going to be a beautiful fall day. We have had rain lately and it will be nice to have the sunshine. Perhaps we can do something outside. For my card today, I had someone specifically in mind – and this person needs a bit of congratulations.

Freezin’ Friends Dies & Curvy Stamps – #1

One of the things I like about SU! products is how items can coordinate with one another. The big box stores don’t do that – they carry products from several different manufacturers and colors do not work well together. In this case, we have Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP, the stitched curvy die from Freezin’ Friends Dies, the new Curvy Christmas stamp set (star stamp) and the sentiment from Quite Curvy stamp set. Then I added this fun large star from Stitched Stars Dies. Love love!

The how to…

  • Begin with a panel of Whisper White and die cut the lower curve with the Freezin’ Friends die. You could use a strip about 2 1/4 x 5.
  • I placed this strip in my Stamparatus and stamped the stars ‘banner’ with Night of Navy ink and the Curvy Christmas stamp set. This is a brand new stamp set that will be available to customers beginning Nov 3-Jan 3.
  • With that same Whisper Whiter panel in my Stamparatus, I stamped the sentiment in Crushed Curry ink using the Quite Curvy stamp set. This stamp set will also be available Nov 3 (along with coordinating dies) but it will be in the next catalogue :O)
  • With that panel complete i adhered it to a panel of DSP – the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP (3 3/4 x 5)
  • Then I die cut another stitched curvy from Whisper White. At it’s deepest point this strip is 1 1/4″ so start with a panel probably 1 1/2 x 5. Adhere this to the top of the DSP panel with liquid glue.
  • I then die cut two stars, one from Crushed Curry card stock and the smaller more intricate from Night of Navy card stock and adhered them together with liquid glue. This got dimensionals and was adhered to the card front.
  • I took this nearly completed panel and adhered it to Crushed Curry card stock – 3 1/4 x 5 1/4 – yep, with liquid glue.
  • My final step was to put a Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the center of the star – it’s special after all! Then I added several Star Designer Elements. They are copper and bring out the copper stars in the DSP :O)
  • I put the Crushed Curry panel on dimensionals and adhered it to a Night of Navy card base (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2). The front really is done…

For the inside…

Freezin’ Fun & Curvy card – #2

I took a panel of Crushed Curry card stock and adhered it to the card base (4 x 5 1/4), then adhered a Whisper White panel (3 3/4 x 5) to this. Lastly I added a strip of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP. Card is complete!

For the envelope – easy peasy… I added a strip of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP to the envelope flap and that was it. Voila!

SU! Curvy Christmas & Curvy Dies Mix It Up!

Hello again… excited to share the new stamp sets & dies available for customers Nov 3… So pretty and so much can be done with the Curvy Dies. I just recently got these in the mail (yep! Demonstrators have the ability to preorder certain items and this is one of them). Curvy Christmas stamp set will only be available until Jan 3, 2021, while the Curvy Dies and it’s coordinating stamp set will be in the new Annual Catalog. Pretty cool, huh?

And here’s the card I made for today – my first with this set.

Curvy Christmas & Curvy Dies – #1

Don’t you love that delicate curve and the little holes – so feminine – can’t wait to play some more…

The how to:

  • Whisper white card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. On the long side, place the Curvy Die approximately in the center. This will create two “halves”, one with the holes and one without.
  • On the panel with the holes, wipe with the Embossing Buddy, stamp with the curvy star stamp in the Curvy Christmas stamp set with Versamark ink. Sprinkle with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
  • With the Stitched Stars Dies, die cut a small star out of Silver Foil. Adhere with a dab of liquid glue.
  • With the Whisper White panel that has the curvy cut, stamp the sentiment, matching it with the curve of the cut, with Cherry Cobbler ink. The sentiment is part of the Curvy Christmas stamp set.
  • Create the card base… Whisper White card stock for the card base – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2: on the long side, fold the two sides toward the center to meet and burnish. (each side will be 2 1/8″)
  • Cut a 3/4 x 5 1/2 strip from the coordinating Classic Christmas 6×6 DSP and adhere with liquid glue to each of the folded sides, on the cut edge.
  • Adhere the curvy panels to the card front with liquid glue. Yes, the DSP is supposed to show through!
Curvy C’mas with Curvy Dies – #2

For the inside…

In The Pines + Curvy Christmas – #3

Don’t you love these fonts?!

  • Cut a panel of Whisper White cs 4 1/4 x 5 1/4
  • Using the In The Pines stamp set, stamp the tree outline in Shaded Spruce ink
  • Stamp the tree ‘fill in’ for the tree from the same stamp set + the sentiment from Curvy Christmas stamp set in Garden Green ink. I used my Stamparatus for this to get the stamp right where I wanted it.
  • Adhere the panel to the inside of the card and voila – the card is done.

For the envelope…

Curvy Christmas + Curvy Dies + Classic Christmas 6×6 DSP – #4

Aren’t these trees wonderful? A touch of whimsy to the envelope front. Of course the tree stamp is from Curvy Christmas stamp set, stamped in Garden Green ink. The DSP on the flap is the Classic Christmas 6×6 DSP. And the whole thing is complete – love, love…
