Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose No-Line Watercolor

Good Friday morning! You may remember that last week I held a watercolor class. Today I am sharing a card made with the no-line watercoloring technique and the Cottage Rose stamp set. I also incorporated the Charming Sentiments stamp set & Sentiment Silhouette Dies, Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Metallic Woven Ribbon in Parakeet Party.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose No-line watercolor

Let me explain the no-line watercoloring technique. I used Fluid 100 watercolor paper, Water painters, (primarily the thin & medium brushes) and several inks. I stamped the rose with Sahara Sand ink on the Fluid 100 paper, got my brush a bit wet by pushing water to the brush tip pinching the water barrel of the painter. I got ink in the lid of the Polished Pink ink pad and a bit of water. I dabbed into the wetness, tapped on grid paper then onto the stamped image. There are two key take-a-ways: not too much water & the more ink on the painter, the darker it will color. I continued the process to color the rose, then the leaves with Mint Macaron first then shaded with Old Olive. My final step was the flower center with So Saffron ink, then dabs of color on the small flowers I am calling status. Once completely colored, I set this aside to dry.

While that was drying, I prepared the card stock and layers: Sahara Sand for the card base, another layer of Sahara Sand run through the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder, Polished Pink for backing the Fluid 100 stamped image, and Polished Pink & Basic White for the inside. Let’s look at the image again.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose No-line Watercolor

The embossed layer is adhered directly to the card base. You can use Stampin’ Seal or liquid glue. I prefer the liquid glue for what I call ‘wiggle room’. The stamped image is adered to Polished Pink in the same fashion, then put on dimensionals and added to the embossed card front. The thin Metallic Woven Ribbon is just the right width for this image and the bow was added with a glue dot. The sentiment is stamped with Sahara Sand ink on Basic White using the Charming Sentiments stamp set, then die cut with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes Dies – l-o-v-e this bundle! It was added with a dimensional and finally three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose, inside

For the inside I stamped the leaf image in stamped off Old Olive, then stamped the sentiment with full strength on a Basic White panel. As you can see, it too is added to a Polished Pink panel and adhered to the inside of the card.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose, no-line watering

This leaf is just a wonderful image, so I used it on the envelope, even allowing the leaf to overhang the fold :O) Of course, I used Old Olive ink. This technique creates a beautiful card – and I’ve sent it already and gotten a response from the recipient – yay! It feels good to thank folks for a job well done – to make them realize they are appreciated. If you do a no-line watercolor, would you share it with me? I would love to see it!

Stampin’ Up! Trees for Sale for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello & welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I’ve used Trees for Sale stamp set and the coordinating Tree Lot Dies that are so stinkin’ cute! These dies are FREE during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order and are a must have…

Stampin' Up! Trees for Sale w/ coordinating Tree Lot Dies

The challenge is shown on. the right… I’ve taken some liberties with the sketch, but I think my card follows it… I used the Double Oval Punch to create the oval that I embossed. The card is just busy, so the eye moves a lot. But I think it still works.

I used the Boughs of Holly DSP adhered to a Soft Succulent panel just slightly larger. That got dimensionals and was added to the Thick Basic White card base. Still using Thick Basic White, I die cut two trees (both the outline and detail + an additional tree detail) using the Tree Lot Dies (they are FREE w/ a qualified order during Sale-a-bration… hint hint) I die cut another tree outline from Soft Succulent card stock then put the trees together with tiny dabs of liquid glue. I then punched an oval from Thick Basic White using the Double Oval Punch. I ran that through the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. I stamped the ‘Trees for Sale’ sign with Mossy Meadow ink on another scrap of Thick Basic White (Trees for Sale stamp set!) and die cut it with the Tree Lot Dies. I adhered this at an angle to the oval with dabs of liquid glue. I punched an ‘edge’ at each side of the card and added White Baker’s Twine from the Twine essentials Pack. I secured it in back with Seal+. I put dimensionals on the two white trees, liquid glue on the Soft Succulent tree and added them to the card. The oval also got dimensionals and was added over the twine.

Stampin' Up! Trees for Sale + Tree Lot Dies

I used the same Boughs of Holly DSP as the front of the card – just the other side of it… to die cut the trailer. I also die cut a wreath in Basic White, a bow in Real Red and adhered those to the trailer. I added a piece of window sheet to indicate a window for the trailer door & eating space, and adhered that with glue dots. Once I knew where I wanted the trailer on the Basic White panel, I stamped the cute dog in Crumb Cake ink, then adhered the trailer over it with liquid glue. It looks as though the dog is barking for his ‘peeps’. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card – and that was it.

Stampin' Up! Trees for Sale & Tree Lot Dies

For the envelope I kept it real simple… using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder to emboss the flap. And that’s it. So let me just say, using the Tree Lot Dies is so much fun … creating a fun picture with die cuts. :O)

Now it’s time to head on over to the next blog. Enjoy the hop of the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop group. Products used to make this card are listed below the blog links.

Stampin’ Up! Masculine Sympathy

Good Saturday morning! A dear woman friend passed away this week and I needed a sympathy card for her husband. I pulled out the Sun Prints DSP and Natural Prints Dies to get a start. Gosh, Stampin’ Up has some gorgeous Designer Series Papers! I wanted something fairly plain for this card ~ and the husband may not appreciate the handmade card, but I’m hoping the rest of the family will. You see, I have this ‘thing’ about handmade cards/ gifts/ foods, I give from the heart and so these things are giving a part of me. This card is very simple, but it’s still a gift from the heart.

Stampin' Up Masculine Sympathy

I began with a Starry Sky card base and this shadow-like piece of Sun Prints DSP. On my desk were these die cut in vellum sprays from the Organic Beauty Dies and I die cut one more in Basic White using the Natural Prints Dies. On another piece of the Sun Prints DSP, I stamped this sentiment ‘frame’ using the Lovely & Lasting stamp set and Gray Granite ink. I then stamped the sentiment in the center using the Inspired Thoughts stamp set and Gray Granite ink. I punched it out with the Lovely Labels Punch. I added the natural sprays to the back with Stampin’ Seal, then added dimensionals and attached it to the Sun Prints DSP. I felt it needed something else so made a double bow, kind of folded it in half, put a glue dot on it and slipped it under the banner. I added a piece of Basic White behind the DSP, put dimensionals on this and attached it to the card front.

Stampin' Up Masculine Sympathy

I kept the inside very simple… just the sentiment from Inspired Thoughts stamp set stamped in Gray Granite ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered this to the inside of the card and that was it.

Stampin' Up! Masculine Sympathy

For the envelope I used more of the Gray Granite piece of the Sun Prints DSP for the flap and called it enough. As I look at the finished card, it feels like it needs more layers of the natural ‘sprays’, but then I think of the individual to whom this is being sent and my gut says no. In other words, I’m not entirely happy with the card, but considering the recipient, it will be just right.

Stampin’ Up! Trees For Sale Christmas Fun Fold

Hello folks! We had a break in temps… down 20 degrees from yesterday – now 77. Whew – so relieved. Today’s card is a fun fold and I don’t know what to call it ~ maybe you can recommend a ‘name’ for it :O)

Stampin' Up! Trees for Sale C'mas, fun fold

What do you think? Do you like a mostly white card with just a bit of color? I have to say, I do. I find it rather elegant. And this fun DSP … it’s FREE during Sale-a-bration with a purchase of $50 worth of product. It’s 6×6 paper and is in gold & silver, stripes & dots. And the other elements of this card: trees & stars are die cuts from the Tree Lot Dies – also FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $100 purchase. It’s so neat that it coordinates with the Trees For Sale stamp set in the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog. If you do not have a demonstrator and need catalogs, reach out to me. I can help you with that! Back to how to do this card.

  • Card base is Thick Basic White: 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, covered with the Gold & Silver Sale-a-bration DSP, silver stripe
  • Cut a Thick Basic White: 5 1/2 x 7 12, score on long side @ 1 5/8, 2 1/2, 4 3/4, 5 7/8
  • Cut panels of the Gold & Silver DSP, silver dots: 1 1/2 x 5 1/4 (cut 2), 7/8 x 5 1/4 (cut 2) adhere to appropriate folded panels
  • Cut Basic White: 2 1/8 x 5 1/4 for middle panel
  • Die cut with Tree Lot Dies & Thick Basic White card stock at least 5 trees. Note there are 2 small and 3 larger trees, including the intricate dies that coordinate. Adhere as shown with liquid glue for larger trees and dimensionals on the small ones. Of course, the tree intricate dies are added with liquid glue to the trees first!
  • Die cut stars from Silver foil using the Tree Lot Dies. I added 5 to my card with dabs of liquid glue
  • Now let’s create the center panel…
    • Stamp the dog on Thick Basic White with Gray Granite ink. Die cut with the Tree Lot Dies.
    • Die cut a bow with Real Red card stock and add to dog with a dab of liquid glue. Add to the thin panel with liquid glue
    • Stamp the ‘sign’ in Garden Green ink
    • Stamp the dog prints in Memento Black ink
  • Add panel to the fun fold center with liquid glue.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Trees For Sale stamp set on the Basic White strip in VersaMark ink, sprinkle with Silver Embossing Powder, heat set with the Heat Tool. Add to the left portion of the folded panel – glue only the left side so that the strip is evenly on the folded flat front.
  • Add three Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the sentiment panel
  • Add the folded panel to the DSP covered card base, centering it in place
Stampin' Up! Trees For Sale C'mas, fun fold
  • This is what the card looks like viewed from the top ~ see how the folded piece is centered?

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest and Scalloped Kraft Teat Boxes

Howdy… how are you managing? It’s been 94 here for several days, maybe up to 98 or 99 today with very high humidity. My silver fern have wilted flat; my astilbe is shrunk to nothing. We have a very shady back yard but the plants are not used to these temps. I watered tonight for a bit and the system will come on in the early morning ~ we’ll see if we can save the plants. 😩😖

Previously I have been posting using the Hello Harvest bundle and some of the products in the suite. Yesterday I posted two masculine birthday cards using other items. So… I HAD to come back and use more of the suite products… I’ve used them with the Scalloped Kraft Treat Boxes to decorate for a sweet gift.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest & Scalloped Kraft Treat Boxes

Here’s a side view of the completed project. The ribbon is Woven Ribbon and not part of the suite, but In liked it and decided to use it to tie the box together :O) The pumpkin is from the Hello Harvest bundle: stamped in Basic Gray for a subtle effect, then colored with Stampin’ Blends: Light So Saffron and Light Pumpkin Pie, then die cut with the Rustic Pumpkin Dies. I poked a hole in in the stem with my Take Your Pick Tool and the Stampin’ Pierce Mat in order to thread the ribbon through. I also die cut a couple of tendrils with the Rustic Pumpkin Dies in Garden Green card stock and adhered them to the pumpkin with dabs of liquid glue.

The leaf is part of the Leaf Label & Amber Gem Combo Pack, which is part of the suite. I stamped the leaf with Early Espresso ink and the Friends Are Like Seashell stamp set, then threaded it through the same ribbon. You can see tied a knot in the ribbon between the pumpkin and the leaf.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest w/ Scalloped Kraft Treat Boxes

Here’s the top view…

  • Cajun Craze card stock for the base of the belly band, layered with Gingham Cottage DSP in So Saffron plaid.
  • Use largest of the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut a circle from the same DSP. Cut another circle in Basic White and adhere to the back of the DSP circle for strength.
  • Stamp the banner on Basic White card stock with Early Espresso ink for the outline and the Lovely & Lasting stamp set.
  • Stamp the word ‘cheers’ in Cajun Craze ink using the Lovely & Lasting stamp set, in the center of the banner. Punch with the Lasting Label Punch and adhere with dimensionals to the circle.
  • Add three Amber Gems from the Leaf Label & Amber Gems Combo Pack.
  • Wrap the belly band around the box; wrap the ribbon over it and attach the ribbon with Tear n Tape to the belly band. Tie a side bow.
  • Attach the circle to the belly band/ ribbon with glue dots
  • TIP: the belly band does not wrap entirely around the box and this circle/ banner cover that up. It is easy to slip the belly band off the box.

Here’s the side view of this adorable box. When it’s time for gift giving, I will fill with cookies as this is a food safe box! If you so wanted, it could be filled with wrapped candies too.

Stampin’ Up! Masculine Birthday Cards

Good Sunday morning to you! I have a couple of fairly quick and easy masculine birthday cards for you today using the Rings of Love DSP that is FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 purchase! Let’s take a look.

Stampin' Up! Masculine Birthday Card
Stampin' Up! Masculine cards

Isn’t this Rings of Love DSP gorgeous? It’s as though it’s watercolored in shades of blue with a bit of green too. In the card at left I have die cut three rectangles with the Stitched Rectangles Dies to make this fairly clean & simple card. I DID emboss the Basic White panel using the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder. And… big note here, stamp on the panel PRIOR TO embossing! The birds are from Let’s Set Sail stamp set and stamped in Memento Black ink. The sentiment on the card front is from Wildflower Path stamp set. Steps… just in case I’ve confused you.

  • Die cut three rectangles using Stitched Rectangles Dies from Rings of Love DSP. Place on the Basic White panel to indicate where the birds should be stamped.
  • Stamp birds in Memento Black ink with the Let’s Set Sail stamp set on Basic White panel
  • Stamp sentiment in Night of Navy ink with the Wildflower Path stamp set on same panel
  • Emboss Basic White panel with the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder
  • Place rectangles once more, adhere the two bottom ones, then put dimensional on third rectangle and attach
  • Add this panel to a Night of Navy piece just slightly larger
  • Add this completed panel to a Thick Basic White card base with dimensionals ~ and the front is done.

For the second card, I used my Stamparatus to make the stamping quite easy. And… this idea came from a team mate, Akiko Sudano – thank you Akiko! The stamp set is Biggest Wish

  • With the DSP in the Stamparatus and knowing I wanted to stamp the ‘Happy” from bottom to top, I stamped that word in full strength Night of Navy ink.
  • I moved the Stamparatus plate to the next ‘grid’ and stamped again, this time re-inking, stamping off on a separate scrap and stamping on the DSP
  • I moved the plate one more ‘grid’ and did not re-ink but stamped immediately. This gave three gradations of the word
  • Remove that word, place ‘birthday’ on the DSP, bring the Stamparatus plate down to pick up stamp, ink with Parakeet Party ink.
  • Clean stamp, re-ink with VersaMark, stamp again. Sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
  • Adhere this completed piece to a panel of Night of Navy card stock.
  • Cut a strip of Parakeet Party card stock and add to the Night of Navy panel. Wrap two lengths of 2022-2024 In Color Bakers Twine in Starry Sky around this strip, tie a know and secure in place under the knot with a glue dot.
  • Add three 2022- 2024 In Color Matte Dots in Starry Sky.
  • Put dimensionals on back of panel & add to Thick basic White card base ~ and this card front is done!

Card to left: stamp splotch using Garden Green ink, stamped off and Oceanfront stamp set. Stamp over it with the sentiment: Night of Navy ink and the Hello Beautiful stamp set… all on a Basic White panel. Add this to a Night of Navy card stock then to the inside of the card – finis!

Card to right: stamp sentiment in Night of navy ink using the Hello Beautiful stamp set. Add a strip of Rings of Love DSP to the bottom of the Basic White panel. Adhere this to a Night of navy piece then to the inside of the card – finis!

As you can see, both envelopes were treated the same… a panel of Rings of Love DSP adhered to the flap. Each card is different, yet using the same DSP and I love that – it shows versatility! And, I can’t decide which card I prefer. Would love to know what you think!

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Hello Card

Hello FRIENDS! Yesterday I shared a card using the Hello Harvest Bundle from the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog. Well, I couldn’t put it down ~ so bear with me while I share another card using more of the dies and stamps. My colors were Gray Granite, Pool Party & Soft Succulent. Let’s take a look…

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Bundle

What do you think? Does this look like a pumpkin? My hubby doesn’t think so 😩, but it does to me! Due to some experienced gardeners, pumpkins come in all colors these days. Mine began with Basic White, die cut with the Rustic Harvest Dies. I then used my Blending Brushes to add some color: a bit of Gray Granite ink, then Mango Melody ink – very lightly. These are two dies for the pumpkin body and another for the stem. I adhered all parts together with liquid glue, put dimensionals on the back and set it aside. My next step was to run a Basic White panel through the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and add color to it with Blending Brushes and Gray Granite ink then Pool Party ink. Once I had it the way I wanted, I adhered it to a slightly larger Pool Party card stock, added dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the Gray Granite card base. I pulled out this leaf stamp from the Hello Harvest stamp set and Soft Succulent ink. I stamped off, then with a Sponge Dauber added a bit of Gray Granite ink on some of the leaf tips, then stamped it on a Basic White scrap. I did this three times, varying where I added the Gray Granite ink with the Sponge Dauber, then die cut each one with the leaf die from the Rustic Harvest Dies. I really like this leaf! Next I stamped the cute flower from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Memento ink and colored it with Stampin’ Blends in Mango Melody. These three flowers were die cut with the flower die in the Rustic Harvest Dies. I die cut various tendrils from Evening Evergreen card stock. Now everything was stamped, colored, and die cut, I could put the card front pieces together.

I lay the pieces out first so as to get the layering right… and in this case, I started with the leaves, then the pumpkin, flowers and finally the tendrils. Adhere in place on the card front: leaves with liquid glue; pumpkin of course is on dimensionals; flowers… one is bent so it has glue while the other two are on dimensionals; tendrils are glued as well. Final touches… a double bow made by cutting the Open Weave 3/8″ Ribbon in Soft Succulent, in half lengthwise, looping twice and securing with Simply Elegant Trim in Gold. I adhered this in place with a glue dot; and three Amber Gems from the Leaf Label and Amber Gems Combo Pack.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Bundle, inside

For the inside, stamp the Hello in Soft Succulent ink on the Basic White standard size panel. Of course this comes from the Hello Harvest stamp set! Then stamp that sweet floral bouquet in stamped off Pool Party ink. Adhere this to a Pool Party card stock piece cut just slightly larger, then into the inside of the Gray Granite card base.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Bundle, card & envelope

For the envelope, again using the same leaf from the Hello Harvest stamp set, I stamped off with the Soft Succulent ink then used a Sponge Dauber and Gray Granite ink to add ink to the leaf stamp on the tips, then stamped on the front of the envelope, reinked in the same way and stamped on the flap. The card is finis! I really really like this card! What do you think? Does the main image look like a pumpkin or not?

Stampin’ Up! Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi folks! It’s time for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. We have a sketch challenge that’s extra good…

This card has a background of Timber 3D Embossing Folder on a Basic White panel. It was adhered to the Thick Basic White card base. On top of that are a strip of Gingham Cottage DSP from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog on a piece of So Saffron card stock adhered in place. The Pear Pizzazz strip is adhered with liquid glue, with the die cut pieces attached with dimensionals. The die cut pieces are Rings of Love DSP, a free item during Sale-a-bration die cut with the largest Layering Circles die. Isn’t this DSP gorgeous? As I mentioned, it’s FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 purchase as long as supplies last… ok, I divert. The DSP is adhered to a scalloped Night of Navy piece, die cut with the largest of the scalloped Layering Circles dies. The Basic White strip is stamped in Night of Navy ink using Happiness Abounds stamp set. I added three Night of Navy Solid Faceted Gems as a final touch.

What do we do with a sketch like this?it inspired me to create a couple of different cards… so totally different, yet both the same. Let’s take a peek at the first card.
Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop 7/21.1

For the inside… I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink using the Happiness Abounds stamp set. I also stamped the leaf image in second generation Pear Pizzazz ink right over it – of course on a Basic White panel. I found on my desk this ‘frame’ die cut using the Deckled Rectangles Dies, and added it to the edge of the Basic White panel, then attached it to the inside of the card.

Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop 7/21, inside

And now… the second card.

Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop, card 2.2

The card base is Melon Mambo card stock, layered with Wonderful World DSP on a Basic White strip, adhered to the card base. I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut yet another piece of the Wonderful World DSP. This is attached to a scalloped die cut with the largest of the Layering Circles Dies in scallop from Basic White. The same sentiment was used on the Basic White strip, but stamped in Mossy Meadow ink. I used three Melon Mambo Solid Faceted Gems for a bit of glam.

For the inside…

Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop, card 2, inside

I first stamped the sentiment from Happiness Abounds stamp set in Melon Mambo ink. The rose is Melon Mambo ink – second generation, but should have been at least third generation, as it covers up the sentiment.

Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop, Card 1
Happy Inkin’ Thur Blog Hop, Card 2

Both of these cards are beautiful ~ one is significantly softer while the other is more bold, but they tell the truth either way. Now, enjoy the hop as you move around the various blogs.

If you have questions just let me know. If you would like to be able to order products early from catalogs AND enjoy that 20% discount, join my team now… you may do that here. WooHoo! We have lots of fun and are a creative bunch that encourages & supports one another. Would love to have you. :O)

Star Special kicking off the new Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog

OK – DOUBLE STAR REWARDS ended a bit ago ~ I’m sorry you missed the deal. BUT – With the start of this new catalog I am beginning a STAR REWARDS program ~ YAY! This will continue from this day forth and below is the informations about those customer rewards.

Here’s how my STAR REWARDS work:

  • For each $50 that you order from my online store (before shipping & taxes) and when you add my current Host Code, you will earn 1 STAR Reward.  Orders of $49.99 or below DO NOT earn any rewards.
    • Example $50 = 1 STAR Reward, $100 = 2 STAR Rewards, $150 = 3 STAR Rewards etc.
  • When you have earned 8 STAR Rewards you will get a FREE product order valued up to $40.00, your choice, and mailed directly to you! Is that a deal or what???
  • You also earn my monthly Online Class Tutorial of exclusive projects when you place an order.
  • For any order $50 or more you will also receive 1 free gift from me valued up to $10.

And remember too, during this time of Sale-a-bration, for every $50 order from any catalog, you’ll earn free Sale-a-bration goodies from Stampin’ Up!
