Stampin’ Up! Oval Occasions Baby Card

Oh Goodness – I AM enjoying the new products being offered in the new Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog! Today’s project features the Oval Occasions Bundle: Oval Occasions stamp set + Double Oval Punch. These can be ordered Jan 5, 2021 ~ unless of course if you join my team 😏, then you can order these products as part of your demonstrator order. Hint, hint.

I have also used the Detailed Hearts Die, which is kinda fun to work with. It’s in the 2020 Annual Catalog. Are you ready to take a peek?

Oval Occasions Bundle – Baby Card – #1

Here’s what I did…

  • Adhere an Adhesive sheet to the back of Blushing Bride card stock. Die cut using the Detailed Hearts Die: peel the backing and adhere to a panel of Whisper White card stock. Yes, remove the hearts. Some will be adhered to this card, others will be saved in a small ziploc bag for later use.
  • I put some of the hearts on dimensionals and covered them in Wink of Stella. This adds a bit of glam πŸ™‚
  • I punched a scalloped oval from Blushing Bride card stock using the Double Oval Punch thewn added a length of Grayb Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon with Stampin Seal.
  • I then stamped the front sentiment on a Whisper White panel with Gray Granite ink, punched it out using the Double Oval Punch from the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog (can be ordered Jan 5!) I put dimensionals on the back and adhered it to the scalloped oval punched with the ribbon. This was adhered to the card front with liquid glue
  • This Whisper White panel is ready for dimensionals and to be adhered to the Thick Whisper White card base – and the card front is done…

For the inside…

Oval Occasions stamp set – baby #2

I stamped the bunny/floral image in Gray Granite ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored it using the ‘fun to use’ Watercolor Pencils and Blending Pen: Flirty Flamingo for the bunnies (lightly), Granny Apple Green for the leaves then shaded with Garden Green, Daffodil Delight for the flowers and shaded with Pumpkin Pie – each blended with the Blending Pen. This really smooths the pencil lines and blends the shading nicely. I added Wink of Stella to the bunnies. I then stamped the sentiment in Gray Granite ink. The heart was added from one of the leftover hearts from the Detailed Hearts Die. I simply peeled the adhesive backing and put it right on the card. Adhere this Whisper White panel to a piece of Blushing Bride with liquid glue then add to the inside of the card, again with liquid glue. Voila – the card is finis!

For the envelope…

I stamped the heart stamp from the Oval Occasions stamp set in Flirty Flamingo and this set is ready to be sent to a friend who just had a bay girl. LOVE that I can create and send right away.

Stampin’ Up! Playful Pets & Cat Punch Fun Fold

Hi there! Welcome to my blog. Today shares another fun fold ~ actually the same fold as yesterday but created differently. And the focus is the Playful Pets DSP. I had an order for the loss of a kitty and this is what I did.

Playful Pets & Cat Punch Fun Fold

I love the way the punched cat sits nearly off the card front – and this kind of fun fold allows that to perfection. And here’s the how-to…

  • Cut a piece of Soft Suede card stock 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and score at 4 1/4
  • On the upper half, or front half, trim off 1″ from each end, just to the score line. This gives the full card base and all that left to do is decorate it 😊
  • The card front is now only 3 1/2 x 4 1/4: cut a panel of Real Red card stock 3 3/8 x 4 1/8 and adhere with liquid glue.
  • Cut a piece of the Playful Pets DSP 3 1/4 x 4 and adhere with liquid glue
  • Using the sweet Cat Punch and Basic Black card stock, punch a cat. Adhere with dimensionals to the edge of the front flap.
  • Stamp the sentiment using Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a 1/2″ Whisper White card stock strip. Trim end using the Banners Pick-a-Punch. Adhere this with liquid glue to a 5/8″ Real Red card stock strip. Adhere the sentiment strip to the card front with liquid glue.
  • The heart for the cat…. with a 1/2″ strip of Real Red card stock, and the Detailed Hearts Die, place the strip at the top of this beautiful die and run it through the Cut & Emboss machine. Choose one of the many hearts and attach to the cat with a mere dot of glue. And your card front is done!

For the inside – lots of card cuts and no stamping…

Playful Pets – card inside #2

Love this inside ~ for me, the hearts make it. The inside is a full 5 1/2 width and I cut lots of panels as a ‘step up’ from yesterdays same fun fold.

  • Cut two strips of Real Red card stock 7/8 x 4 1/8 and one @ 3 3/8 x 4 1/8
  • Cut two strips of Playful Pets DSP 3/4 x 4. Adhere to the Real Red strips with liquid glue and then to the card base at each end with liquid glue.
  • Adhere the larger Real Red panel to the card inside with liquid glue
  • Cut a panel of Whisper White card stock 3 1/4 x 4. Adhere the heart die cuts that remain from cutting the heart for the cat. I trimmed mine apart and cut back some of what felt unnecessary edges to get the look I wanted. Adhere with mere dots of liquid glue to the Whisper White panel, then to the inside of the card and voila!

For the envelope… cut a strip of coordinating Playful Pets DSP 2 1/4 x 6, adhere to the envelope flap with liquid glue and trim. Stamp the cat feet (this is a non SU! product that I have kept from years of crafting) in Tuxedo Black ink..

Playful Pets & Cast Punch Fun Fold
