Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils Gift Set

Today’s project features the incredible Flowering Foils Specialty DSP that is a free Sale-a bration item when purchasing $50 worth of product, and some of our alcohol Stampin’ Up! Blends. Let’s take a look…

Coloring on this paper is so relaxing – really a cathartic for me – not that I’m stressed or anything. It simply just really get’s me going… I took one sheet of the foils and broadly cut out all the flowers. Then I sorted them putting them is piles of like flowers. That’s when I could start the coloring process, and I colored maybe four of them, then began trimming, so I could raise up some of the petals. The card has three layers on top of the card base. Here’s more detail…

  • Thick Whisper White for the card base 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″; 3 5/8″ x 5 1/8″ for the inside
  • Lovely Lipstick 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ – cut 2, one is for the inside
  • Flowering Foils SDSP 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ for the front; 1/8″ x 5 1/8″ for the inside.

 

  • Color the flower using Light and Dark Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Up! Blends. Begin with the dark, coloring only one or two petals, then going back with the light to fill in. Complete the flower then go back and use the Color Lifter Blend to lighten areas that you think need it. This is where it really begins to look almost real ๐Ÿ™‚ Curl the edges of the. petals using a bone folder.
  • Next do the leaves in Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Up! Blends. I didn’t use much color lifter on these, but did some.
  • Finally I colored the flower buds with the same Lovely Lipstick combination of blends.
  • Now do the trimming and layering process to your satisfaction. I colored some of those flowers that were on edges of the paper so they became the top layers of the flowers. Adhere the layers with dimensionals so it truly becomes a three dimensional project. The top flower needs the center colored and I used Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Blends for that. Keep curling the edges of the flower petals to get that “real” look.
  • I finally added Wink of Stella on the top couple of layers. I like the sparkle!
  • Add the bow: Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon and adhere with a glue dot.

The inside…,

  • Super simple: adhere the additional Whisper White panel to the extra Lovely Lipstick.
  • Add the colored 1/8″ strip of the SDSP to the left of the Whisper White.
  • Adhere the Lovely Lipstick to the inside… Card is complete!

The gift bag follows the exact instruction from Sunn Stampin’ – I encourage you to watch her video on this. I simply used a different Flowering Foils SDSP to create the bag, then I decorated it.

 

  • Lovely Lipstick 2 1/2″ x 11 1/2″, gently creased around the finished bag, then score those creases, adhere tear n’ tape to the ends and wrap around and attach to the bag.
  • The flower was a double flower from the SDSP and I colored it the same as above. Then I used another layer on the bottom flower, trimming the petals apart a bit while still keeping them intact.
  • The lower flower has a Perennial Essence Floral Centers for the inner portion. I considered using another for the upper flower, but it was too much. Curl the edges of the petals using your bone folder, but be very gentle – you don’t want to pull the petals off.
  • Adhere a Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon and bingo -done.

Thanks for making a second stop with me today. Do tell me what you think of these projects. I had such fun coloring and putting together. ๐Ÿ˜

May you have a beautiful day.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils Card and Gift Bag

My card today uses the stunning Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils papers that can be earned with a $50 order. It also uses Daisy Lane Stamp set, Around the Corner stamp set, Beautiful Bouquet stamp set, the Medium Daisy punch and the Bouquet Bunch dies.Sounds like a lot doesn’t it? But the card was super fun and easy to create. Here it is…

Isn’t this fun? I really, really like it. This Flowering Foils paper has some body to it, was easy to work with and is stunning in person. Pictures really does not do it justice. My intension was to make a masculine card but once I got started, well, you see what happened. It isn’t masculine at all!

Here are the details:

  • Smokey Slate card stock cut to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Blueberry Bushel cut to 4 3/4″ x 3 1/4″
  • Flowering Foils cut to 4 1/2″ x 3″

So how did I get this wonderful ombre effect? By using a brush roller! Using the roller, roll over the ink pad GOING IN ONE DIRECTION ONLY, NOT BACK AND FORTH. This allows the ink to cover the entire roller, not just sections of it. Put roller to paper starting at the top of the foils paper and moving downward. I did not go to the end of the piece as I wanted a gradient color. Continue this process until it’s to the depth of shade desired. Allow to dry a few minutes then buff lightly with a soft cloth to remove ink from the foil design. This is a bit of a messy process as it gets ink on your hands during the handling and holding of the paper. Just make certain the ink on your hands is dry before handling other papers!

  • Adhere the Flowering Foils piece to the Blueberry Bushel using liquid glue. Wrap braided linen thread around these two pieces and tie in a knot
  • Using the Daisy Lane stamp set stamp three daisies on Whisper White card stock and punch out with the Medium Daisy punch. Curl the petals by running a bone folder over the petals and lifting them. Adhere daisies together with glue dots. Adhere over the ribbon with a dimensional. Adhere a Gold Faceted Gem in the daisy center.
  • Stamp the “for you” using Blueberry Bushel ink and the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set onto a Whisper White scrap. Cut out using the Bouquet Bunch dies. Put a dimensional on the back, slip a length of linen thread through the hole and tie in a knot to the braided linen ribbon.
  • Adhere all this with dimenionals to the Smokey Slate cs and the card front is complete!

This card is for a friend who will be running a convention in a couple of months, and that’s why the sentiment on the inside. Here it is…

  • Blueberry Bushel 4 3/4″ x 3 1/4″
  • Whisper White 4 1/2″ x 3″
  • Stamp the sentiment with Blueberry Bushel ink
  • Add a Noble Rhinestone jewel and the card is complete.

The envelope…

  • The envelope got the same treatment on the flap, using a piece of the Flowering Foils cut 2 1/4″ x 6″, adhering with liquid glue and trimming to size.
  • On the envelope front I stamped the sentiment from Around the Corner stamp set in Blueberry Bushel. Since this card will be hand delivered, I adhered five jewels from the Noble Peacock Rhinestone pack

I love this card – did I say that already? Hope you do as well. Now – on with the matching gift bag..

 

  • Cut a piece of Flowering Foils paper 6″ x 12″. Create the ombre effect as described above.
  • Score on the long side 1 1/2″, 5 3/4″, 7 1/4″ and 11 1/2″.
  • With the ombre on the right, score on the short side 1 1/2″
  • Burnish all score lines.
  • Remove the small 1/2″ section below the 1 1/2″ score line. Adhere Tear n’ Tape to the long 1/2″ section
  • Cut up to the 1 1/2″ score line
  • Fold over the bag to the Tear n’ Tape; fold up the bottom and adhere with Tear n’ Tape
  • Pinch top; Wrap a length of Braided Linen Ribbon around the bag, tie in a bow
  • Stamp the ‘Smile’ sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Blueberry Bushel. Punch out with the Tailored Tag Punch. Add you own ‘scrolly’ around the edge. Using the Tailored Tag Punch , punch another from Blueberry Bushel cs and cut in half. Adhere the white punched piece to the two sections of Blueberry Bushel creating an even border. Adhere with dimensionals to the bag. DONE!
  • I want to give credit to Pootles for the wonderful video on YouTube that inspired this fun set. Thank you!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you liked this fun set. Remember this Flowering Foils paper is available during the rest of Sale-a-bration (Mar 31!) with a $50 order. In other words it;s a FREE ITEM!

Cute packaging using retired DSP

Hi All – happy August! Today is a fun project using retired Designer Series Paper (or in the Stampin Up! World DSP) Of course, any paper can be used, but this is a fun way to make use of that retired product. I’ve used 6 x 6 cardstock and cut that down to size. Here is a picture of the finished product – five ย of them anyway – and so easy to do.

Here are the dimensions:

5″ wide scored at 1 1/8″, 2 1/4″, 3 3/8″ and 4 1/2″

4 3/4″ tall scored at 1″ at bottom. Burnish all score lines.

 

Look at the next picture to see how that was trimmed. Notice also the tear ‘n tape and where it is positioned. The first is the front side, the second is the inside of the package.

 

What’s fun then is to decorate! I used primarily the 1 3/8″ scalloped punch for the larger circle, and went from there, looking in my scrap bin for whatever I could find. On one of them are two sets of leaves from the leaf punch: one. In vellum, the other in Shaded Spruce to coordinate with the DSP. The spruce leaf is scored along each leaf and slightly curled to make it more three dimensional. The butterfly is reinforced on a piece of cardstock – cut from another retired DSP. The little dots are glitter dots – don’t you just love them? They bring the decoration to life. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings.

After puttting it together, I’ve pinched the top and punched a hole in which to thread the ribbon.
