Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery #2

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… packages under the tree now means I did some wrapping yesterday! Ha – a bit more to do but feeling good about where I am in the process right now. How about you – you ready? Don’t wait, don’t hesitate…

Today’s card is made with new products available to customers beginning Jan 5, 2021. This is called Art Gallery & Floral Gallery Dies. It’s part of a suite that includes a 3D Embossing Folder that is awesome, some super ribbon, Gilded Leafing (which I haven’t played with yet!), Heat & Stick powder to adhere the leafing, and some incredible Golden Garden acetate & Fine Art Floral DSP. As I mentioned, the only product I haven’s used yet is the Gilded Leafing – so guess that’s on my ‘to do’ list, but maybe not today!

Art Gallery #2 – 1

I’ve used two coordinating papers from the Fine Art Floral DSP to create a fun background for the flower from the Art Gallery stamp set. The larger piece was adhered directly to the Thick Whisper White card base. My next step was to stamp the flower on Whisper White card stock in Merry Merlot, then the 2nd step stamp in Rococco Rose. I know, interesting combination… and the Rococco Rose doesn’t show much, which is ok. I then stamped the leaves & stem (one stamp) in Old Olive ink and die cut them both at the same time with the Floral Gallery Dies. I then die cut a second piece of the Fine Art Floral DSP using the third from largest die in Rectangle Stitched Dies. I adhered this stitched rectangle to a slightly larger panel of Flirty Flamingo card stock with liquid glue. This was attached to the floral card base with liquid glue. I adhered the flower with dimensionals to this panel, then the leaves/ stem with liquid glue, slipping it under the flower just a bit. I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and die cut it with one of the dies in the Floral Gallery Dies. Don’t you love the fun edge? I adhered it with dimensionals, trimmed the end, added three Pearl Basic Jewels and called the front done.

For the inside of the card, I used the outline from the stitched rectangle die cut and adhered it to the inside of the card with liquid glue. I love this effect ~ it brings the colors of the front to the inside and creates boundaries as well. For the envelope I kept it very simple. I cut another piece of the Fine Art Floral DSP that coordinated with the two front DSP panels and adhered that with liquid glue to the flap. Here’s abetter photo.

Art Gallery #2 – 3

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.

Please see my Dec 5 post for the complete list. Now that I have your attention 😏, let’s look at today’s card.

Simply Succulents – #1

This card has a couple of really nice elements to it: the Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP, that center succulent colored in alcohol Blends, the bow, and I love the color of the flowerpot, and the sentiment banner is awesome.

Supplies you will need to create this card:

  • Simply Succulents stamp set and coordinating Potted Succulents Dies ~ available Jan 5, 2021
  • Rococco Rose card base 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Whisper White card stock (2) 4 x 5 1/4 + another 4 x 5 1/4 for all the die cuts. Helpful TIP: you can die cut some of the pieces from the Whisper White panel used on the front of the card since it is covered by the DSP.
  • Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP – available Jan 5, 2021
  • Basketweave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack – using the Mint Macaron Basketweave ribbon
  • Stampin Blends: Soft Sea Foam, Mint Macaron, Petal Pink, Cinnamon Cider, Color Lifter
  • Inks: Soft Sea Foam, Mint Macaron, Highland Heather, Rich Razzleberry, Cinnamon Cider
  • extras…Versamark & Clear Embossing Powder, Wink of Stella
  • Blending Brushes – available Jan 5, 2021 ~ these are w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l

Yes, that’s a lot of supplies.. and let me just say ~ you could get by not using the Stampin Blends OR not using the Blending Brushes. There are two different effects going on in this card: the Blends for coloring the one large succulent and the Blending Brushes and inks for the very soft coloring using many inks. I wanted to try them together, The Blends really bring out all the detail of the succulent, while the Blending Brushes create a very soft look. Both are effective and it depends on what you’re wanting. I rather like the combined use here.

  • Stamp the large succulent and the two smaller succulents with Versamark ink on Whisper White card stock that has been rubbed with the embossing buddy. The embossing buddy helps remove static so the embossing powder sticks just to the ink. 🙂
  • Cover with Clear Embossing Powder, flick off the extra and heat set with your heat gun.
  • Color these pieces prior to die cutting.
    • With the Stampin Blends, color the largest succulent, first using the Soft Sea Foam, then Mint Macaron, then move the dark with more Soft Sea Foam. Add the Petal Pink blends to the tips of the succulent and a final touch of Blushing Bride Marker
    • With the Blending Brushes and inks, begin coloring with the lightest shade of green (Soft Sea Foam) using a circular motion and starting off the page. Begin adding color where you want more darkness: Mint Macaron, then the Highland Heather and finally Rich Razzleberry, but only a little of that.
  • Die cut your pieces using the Potted Succulent Dies
  • Stamp the flower pot in Cinnamon Cider ink on Whisper White card stock, color in using the Cinnamon Cider Blends. Use the Color Lifter to create highlights. Cover the pot with Wink of Stella. Die cut the flower pot with the Potted Succulent Dies.
  • Layer your pieces:
    • Adhere 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White to the Rococco Rose card base with liquid glue
    • Adhere the 3 7/8 x 5 Oh So Ombre panel next, using liquid glue
    • Adhere the flower pot with liquid glue
    • Adhere the large succulent with dimensionals, then add the other two succulents, also with dimensionals
    • Add the bow with a glue dot: Basketweave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, Mint Macaron
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Simply Succulent stamp set in Rococco Rose ink on Whisper White card stock and die cut with one of the awesome banner dies from the Potted Succulent Dies. Adhere to the card front with dimensionals. Your card front is done!

For the inside, on a panel of Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4, stamp one of the succulent stamps from the Simply Succulents stamp set in Soft Sea Foam ink. Stamp in the corners a few times. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

For the envelope, cover the flap with more of the Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP with an added piece of Rococco Rose. Trim to fit. Stamp the same succulent used on the inside of the card in Soft Sea Foam, both on the flap and on the card front. Nicely done!

The product list may be found below ~ except for those items not available until Jan 5, 2021! 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 SVFB9YJY – good until Dec 10, 2020.
