Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Welcome

We had quite a ‘show’ on our bird feeders yesterday: Baltimore Orioles (both male & female), Rose Breasted Grosbeak, Red-Bellied Woodpeckers, Downy Woodpeckers, Catbird and Cardinals. Oh my, we had trouble getting work done. God’s creations are just amazing and I rarely get my fill. But yesterday was amazing! The Orioles were around the day before, but only a couple. This time there were at least four males and two females. They rarely stay long, but we had put out grape jelly and an orange cut in half and they really were going for it. Such glorious creatures!

New neighbors are moving in later this month and I’m creating a list of who lives where on our street to help them get acquainted. Our street is a cul de sac and it’s ideal for kids and bicycles and basketball – and we all know one another. If we need anything, we can count on our neighbors. Along with the listing of who lives where, I’ve made a card (surprise!)

Friends Are Like Seashells Welcome – #1

This card begins with a Sahara Sand card base. Adhered to that is a panel of Sand & Sea DSP that has been run through the painted Texture 3D embossing folder. I had created some time ago, some of my own shimmer paper using Blushing Bride card stock and the Frost White, which is now retired. Using the die as a template, I stamped the various shell designs on the now shimmery Blushing Bride card stock with various inks: Blushing Bride, Mango Melody and Sahara Sand. I ran the Blushing Bride piece through the die cutting machine with the Seaside Seashells Dies and then through the Seashells 3D embossing folder, then fussy cut the various shells and used what I needed for this card – and saved the others for another project. I also ran a piece of the Shimmer paper through using only a portion of the same die (oops! I think that paper is retired! You could use the Pearlescent paper. It’s just a bit darker.) That looks a lot like a piece of coral to me and was a perfect contrast for this card.

I began layering the pieces: the largest shell was adhered with dimensionals; the small pink shell was adhered directly to the pale Shimmer paper; the ‘coral’ piece was adhered with both liquid glue at the base and a couple of mini dimensionals to add depth. I stamped the sentiment with Sahara Sand ink on Pearlescent Paper (see how it is just a bit darker?) and fussy cut it then added it to the card with dimensionals. And the card front was done!

Friends Are Like Seashells Welcome, inside – #2

For the inside I adhered a strip of the Sand & Sea DSP that had been run through the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder then stamped the sand dollar with Sahara Sand ink, adhered the panel to the inside of the card and voila!

Friends Are Like Seashells Welcome – #3

For the envelope I adhered two pieces of coordinating card stock to the envelope flap: Sand & Sea DSP + Sahara Sand and ran that through the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder. For the front of the envelope I adhered one of the fussy cut shells with liquid glue – and the card is ready to give to our new neighbors when they move in later this month. Nothing like being prepared!

Stampin’ Up! Spiral Dye Congrats

Yesterday must have been a whirlwind at the Stampin’ Up! offices. With the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog going live, the joining special, the Host special – wow! They are rockin’ it! Today I am celebrating our grandson who was just admitted to University of Performing Arts. He will begin in the fall and is so excited, he is just beside himself. 🙂 He’s been involved in theater for some time and this has been a dream for a while. The pandemic and costs slowed the process, but now it’s a ‘go’ and today’s card is all about that.

Spiral Dye Congrats – #1

Does this look kinda like tie dye to you? It certainly does to me… and tie dye shirts are popular to this day. So how did I do this… first of all I looked at a couple of videos: Mary Deatherage & Bruno Bertucci are two of them I watched – and I encourage you to do that. Next thing was to set up my Stamparatus and since this is one big stamp, that was easy. I use this Stamparatus a LOT. I began with a square Basic White card stock and chose markers to use for coloring the stamp: Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy and Highland Heather for the first go around, then So Saffron for the second. Why markers you ask… if using more than one color, the ink pads just don’t work. And for some reason, the sponge daubers come off too light. So… the brush end of the markers worked well and was pretty quick. I started with the Highland Heather first and simply colored the stamp and stamped it on the square Basic White card stock. I followed around coloring all the stamp using the colors mentioned. Once I had colored the entire dye I rotated the paper a full 180 degrees and colored the entire stamp with So Saffron. I probably could have used the ink pad for this since it was just one color – but I didn’t. Next time…

Once I had done all the stamping I determined the mats and card base. After futzing around a bit, So Saffron became the card base with the next layer Rich Razzleberry (on dimensionals). I knew I wanted to die cut the letters, so pulled out Playful Alphabet Dies and Foam Adhesive and Night of Navy card stock. I adhered the Foam Adhesive to a Night of Navy strip that was probably 1 1/4 x 6. That could be a bit long – but not much. I didn’t want to waste the Foam Adhesive! I ran the letters through the die cut machine at least three times to make certain the cuts went all the way through. They were perfect and popped out nicely. I adhered them to a Basic White strip that I had already cut to the proper length and had trimmed the ends with the Fancy Label Punch. I didn’t want the ends on this piece square and this was just enough curve. I layered this strip to a piece of Rich Razzleberry with Stampin’ Seal, then put dimensionals on the back and placed it on the card front. I die cut our grandsons name – also out of Night of Navy with Foam Adhesive on the back and covered the name with Wink of Stella. It was then added to the card front.

This is thick – and if I were mailing it, would need to go in a padded envelope. But thankfully – I’m not mailing it… We get to see our Grands IN PERSON for the first time since August of 2020!!! WOOHOO!!! Happy Mother’s Day to me – and to our daughter… I’m getting carried away – back to the card… If I didn’t explain, the layers are like this: So Saffron card base; Rich Razzleberry on dimensionals with the Spiral Dye card adhered with liquid glue to it – followed by the words/ letters. The card front is now complete.

Spiral Die Congrats, inside – #2

For the inside I took a panel of Basic White and added some of the trimmed Spiral Dye card stock with Stampin’ Seal. I then stamped the two sentiments from A Grand Kid stamp set in Rich Razzleberry ink – again using my Stamparatus. I really like the mixed fonts on this! The Basic White panel was adhered to Rich Razzleberry with liquid glue then into the inside of the card and voila – all done! I think he’s going to like this…

Spiral Dye Congrats – #3

I wanted to do something different on the flap so took some Rich Razzleberry scraps and adhered them with liquid glue, trimmed the extra. I then ran it through the Painted Texture 3D Embosssing Folder, which gave it some great texture. For the front I adhered some extra strips of leftover card front pieces. Done, done, done.

This was definitely a fun play with a new stamp – the Spiral Dye. I also see this with a butterfly – again.. another day, another card 🙂
