Stampin’ Up! More Heart & Home Mem’ries & More

Hello Everyone! Things have been a bit on the rough side here at home: hubby has been in severe pain w/ back issues and finally had surgery a week ago today. Whew! He is in recovery mode and we are very hopeful!!! For those of you who knew what was going on, thank you for your prayers. We could feel the Power of God’s Presence and are so grateful. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Keeping cards still pretty simple, I’m again using the Heart & Home Mem’ries & More Card Pack + the coordinating Cards & Envelopes. This is one of the smaller notecards in the set ~ take a look-see.

More Heart & Home Mem’ries & More

The card base is the smaller notecard in the Cards & Envelopes, the woodgrain. The bumblebee portion is 1/2 a small card in the Card Pack, trimmed a bit. That card is adhered to Cinnamon Cider card stock cut 1/4″ larger and put on dimensionals, I added a length of the shimmer ribbon in Gray Granite for accent with Tear n’ Tape and attached to the notecard. I stamped the sentiment from Honeybee Home in Basic Gray ink on a scrap of Basic White and fussy cut it, put mini dimensionals on the back and added it. Three Metallic Pearls in Silver were the final touch. LOVE…

More Heart & Home Mem’ries & More

For the inside, another panel of Cinnamon Cider with Basic White card stock. A sticker was added to bring in the gray :O) Another easy card that can easily be birthday, sympathy or thank you. Versatility once more – YAY! And here’s the envelope with it.

Stampin’ Up! Easter Friends Fun Card

Hello again! It’s a cold Tuesday morning and I have a fun, quick and easy card for you today that just shouts SPRING. It’s made with the Easter Friends stamp set (the bunny) and it’s cute.

Easter Friends, front.1

I began by stamping the bunny in Crumb Cake ink on a Basic White panel 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 scored at the top 1/2″ I colored his nose with a Petal Pink marker. I adhered this to a Blushing Bride piece 2 3/4 x 4 1/4, wrapping the Basic White OVER the Blushing Bride. This was attached to a panel of Crumb Cake 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I stamped the front sentiment in Crumb Cake ink on a Basic White scrap and die cut it with the Tailor Made Tags dies, then took a length of the Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon and slipped it through the opening, securing the ribbon together with a glue dot. With dimensionals on the back, this was adhered to the bunny. I added Adhesive-Backed Hexagons in Blushing Bride for a bit more pink.

Easter Friends, inside.2

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set – Easter Friends, masking off a portion of the sentiment, in Crumb Cake ink. At the bottom of this Basic White panel I stamped several grasses in Granny Apple Green ink and layered them. Yep m- still Easter Friends stamp set. The white panel is 2 3/8 x 4. This was adhered to the Blushing Bride panel.

Easter Friends, back.3

Now turn the entire piece over… again with Granny Apple Green ink, I stamped the grasses, layering as I went, onto the Basic White panel (4 x 5 1/4). I then stamped the frolicking duck in Crumb Cake ink. Doesn’t it look as though the duck is dancing? I adhered this to the back of the Crumb Cake and the card was done.

Easter Friends.4

For the envelope I used Subtles 6×6 DSP for the flap, trimming it to fit and stamped the baby chick in Crumb Cake ink. I colored it with So Saffron Blends – not my best! And the card is ready to send!

Easter Friends.5

Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Afternoon DSP B’day

Hello everyone! It’s c-o-l-d here on the Jersey coast – 9 degrees yesterday, 19 today (wow – a heat wave!). I have two cards for you today, both of which are birthday cards using Daffodil Afternoon DSP from Sale-a-bration. It’s a FREE DSP pack when ordering $50 or more.

Daffodil Afternoon DSP.card 1

Notice how on this card more of the daisies show their glory even though there are daffodils in the lower half. Begin by creating the card base: Flirty Flamingo and covering the front with a panel of Daffodil Afternoon DSP that would coordinate with the main front. Then cut a piece of the DSP, cut it in half lengthwise, then take the right piece and cut it in two pieces. You can vary the cuts to suit the design. Adhere this DSP to a panel of Flirty Flamingo, put dimensionals on the back and center it on the card front. For the sentiment panel, I stamped in Memento Black ink on Pale Papaya card stock using the brandy newy Waves of Inspiration stamp set ‘happy birthday’. It is a perfect size for this card. Then I die cut it with one of the Waves Dies and put dimensionals on the back. I slipped a length of the fun Glittered Organdy Ribbon behind the front panel and then through each side of the sentiment banner, securing the ribbon in place with a glue dot on each end. I added three Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels… and the card front was complete.

Daffodil Afternoon DSP.card 2

Card 2 was begun the same as the first. The difference is the front panel was off-set to the top in lieu of center. Also – no ribbon. And the sentiment banner is stamped on Very Vanilla card stock and die cut with Tropical Layers Dies. I’ll be honest, I like the front panel better when it’s centered, but I thought this looks ok. I still included the Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels and like the added sparkle.

The inside of the cards are the same: a stamp from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set was stamped in Pale Papaya ink on the Very Vanilla panel and adhered to the inside of the card. For the envelope, I used the same stamp & ink for the front and more of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP for the flap.

And there you have it… two cards, same DSP, very similar layout/ design. Card cuts will be listed at the end of this post. I hope you like… these cards are definitely a breath of spring – which is right around the corner!

Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin Alternatives, Jan ’22

Happy Monday! New week, new day, new start to whatever. I like to think of it as a new beginning each day, a start-over. Gratitude, praise, thanks, then go… Howe do you like to start your day ~ besides with a cup of coffee or tea?

My Paper Pumpkin arrived the other day and since our grandkids are coming this weekend (it’s my birthday weekend:) I thought, what better time than now to put these adorable cards together & give them to our “Grands” to share with their classmates or teachers. So I set to work. I limited myself to additional Stampin’ Up! products as I needed to keep these simple. I chose Sweet Talk 12 x 12 DSP, Daffodil Afternoon 12 x 12 DSP and Gold Foil Sheets for decorative papers; the Heart Punch and the Scalloped Heart punch, Basic White, Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink card stocks + all the PP kit ingredients. So – lots of pictures in this post…

And a couple of photos of the inside of the alternative cards…

Additional inks used were Blushing Bride & Flirty Flamingo + the ink in the kit, Gray Granite. 17 cards in all ~ that’s a lot of cards with minimum product added to the Paper Pumpkin kit. Such a good deal – just sayin’. And these kits come monthly with each one different from the last. Some make cards, some are boxes or treats, it varies, which is kinda fun. This way a person doesn’t get bored :O) Now is a good time to join Paper Pumpkin too, ‘cuz prices increase just a bit as of Mar 1, 2022. And if you get the entire year subscription, that becomes a fixed price before Mar 1… Get your Paper Pumpkin, click here.

Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome! It’s Thursday and that means we have a special blog hop… love these hops and all the creativity that is shared.

We have a sketch challenge which you will see below – fun sketch. I kept thinking of all kinds of ideas to do for this, but settled on a favorite new (to me)technique called ‘whitewash’ and I did it a bit differently than I shared the other day. You can see that post here.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop February 3-Sketch Challenge aasasss'

And here’s my card for this sketch, using the fabulous Calming Camillia stamp set. This set comes when you do a $300 order. That means as a host, you can take orders from others to get to this amount. It’s a win-win. And don’t forget, Sale-a-bration is on until Feb 28 and lots more freebies come during this time when you place an order of $50 or more. But… on with how to make this card. 🙂

Calming Camillia.1

Stamp the flower from Calming Camillia on a Night of Navy panel with Night of Navy ink. Color the flowers only using an empty but damp water painter brush and Whisper White ink. In other words, the brush itself was still wet but the holder just had drops of water in it. I used an acrylic block and placed it on the white ink pad. covering it with ink. I took my brush and used the block as my ink pad. With this technique the ink went on more easily – and I colored only the flowers. These I wanted to stand out. I used just the very tip of my brush to create some highlights along various edges. Once that was good and dry, I ruffed the edges with the side of my paper snips. I cut another panel of New Horizons 6×6 DSP and ruffed the edges of it as well. This gives it kind of a vintage look, don’t you think so? I adhered the two together with liquid glue, offsetting the DSP panel.

I took another piece of the Night of Navy card stock and ran it through the Hive 3D embossing folder, then ran it through again with the Timeworn 3D embossing folder, then roughed the edges of that panel too. I laid a length of Flowers For every Season Ribbon Combo pack on the card base then adhered the embossed panel to the Night of Navy card base. I tied a bow on the side, put dimensionals on my square pieces and adhered this over the ribbon. At this point I felt the card needed a little more color to it, so I die cut the fun curved panel from the Brilliant Rainbow Dies and a scrap of the New horizons 6×6 DSP, slipped it under the ribbon and adhered it with dabs of liquid glue. For a final touch I added three Polished Dots to the floral panel and the card front was done.

Calming Camillia.2

For the inside…

Calming Camillia, inside.3

I stamped the leaf image from Calming Camillia in Night of Navy ink on a Basic White panel, then added a couple of the flourishes from the stamp set, also stamping in Night of Navy ink. The sentiment also comes from Calming Camillia stamp set and was stamped in Night of Navy ink. I added this stamped panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

For the envelope…

Calming Camillia.4

More of the New Horizons 6×6 DSP was adhered to the envelope flap. For the front of the envelope a beautiful leaf from Calming Camillia was stamped in Night of Navy ink.

This is a wonderfully versatile card: it could be used for a birthday, sympathy or simply just a note to someone special. I love that it can be used for several different occasions.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Fields DSP and Amazing Thanks Dies

The January to June 2022 Mini Catalog is full of absolutely amazing project ideas, new stamp & die sets AND new Designer Series Papers. I hadn’t played much with the Flowering Fields DSP, so when I began doing so, well, I fell in love with it. I saw a layout on Pinterest that I decided to use and adapted it to this card.

Flowering Fields / Amazing Thanks Dies.1

Isn’t that DSP beautiful? I love how gentle the flowers look, sort of blowing in the breeze. And here’s how I made this card.

  • Cut a panel of Rich Razzleberry 4 1/8 x 5 3/8; run it through the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder; adhere with liquid glue to the Basic White Thick card base
  • Cut a panel of Basic White 3 x 3 1/2 and run it through the Meadow Moments embossing folder; adhere as shown with liquid glue
  • Cut a length of Flowering Fields DSP 2 1/4 x 5 1/4 and adhere, centering on the card front.
  • Using the Layering Circles Dies, cut a circle from Highland Heather card stock. Put dimensionals on the back and attach where shown
  • Using the Amazing Thanks Dies, die cut the sentiment from Basic White and adhere with liquid glue.
  • Attach several (here I used 5) Brushed Brass Butterflies.
  • And just one more touch of sparkle was needed… cut a length of the Glittered Organdy Ribbon in White and attached with a glue dot under the circle. Love…❤️

For the inside…

Flowering Fields / Amazing Thanks, inside

With the Amazing Thanks Dies comes this wonderful stamp set, Amazing Silhouettes, and this butterfly is absolutely perfect for the inside of this card. Stamp it in Highland Heather ink as shown, on a Basic White panel and adhere to the inside of the card. Done!

For the envelope, I turned this tulip panel over and saw this wonderful color spray from Highland Heather to Rich Razzleberry, and adhered it to the flap. For the envelope front, I stamped the same butterfly from Amazing Silhouettes in Highland Heather ink.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop January 20- Sketch Challenge'

My card is a Note card and I’v e chosen to work with the Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 SDSP and the Sweet Hearts Dies. Let’s take a peak.

Sweet Hearts Dies.1

Are these tiny hearts sweet or what?! The die I used cuts four of these at a time which makes it really easily to die cut multiples. As I look at this, I’m wondering why I didn’t add another strip of color to the inside of the Abstract Beauty 4×6 SDSP… Hmmm. A bit of ribbon maybe. Well, another card another day 🙂 These note cards are 3 1/2 x 5, so I cut a panel of Basic White card stock just that size, stamped the sentiment (from Rainbow of Happiness stamp set) in Magenta Madness ink, then ran this through the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I added the two narrow strips of the Abstract Beauty 4×6 SDSP to each side. I die cut the hearts from the same SDSP. The top gold heart is on a mini dimensional cut down to fit. The other hearts are added with dabs of liquid glue, and I put the dot of glue right on the card front in lieu of the heart.

For the inside of the card….

Sweet Heart Dies.2

I added another strip of the Abstract Beauty 4×6 SDSP to the right inside of the card and final heart die cut. Sweet, simple.

Sweet Heart Dies.3

For the envelope I stamped the front with the same sentiment from Rainbows of Happiness stamp set buty used Blushing Bride ink. And for envelope flap, a piece of Simply Marbelous 6×6 DSP (FREE during Sale-a-bration!) adhered with liquid glue and trimmed to fit.

Stampin’ Up! Hey Sports Fan and Sports Event Dies B’day

Hello folks! How’s your day? It’s r-e-a-l-l-y cold here in central Jersey, brrr. Our Christmas decorations are finally down and put away. I resisted for as long as I could :O) Needles, needles everywhere from the tree. I bet I vacuumed at least four times, ‘cuz I kept finding more needles. 🥴 Those are the hazards of a fresh cut tree. And I know that.

Today’s card is for our grandson who turns 14 very soon. He’s a hunk of a young man, 8th grade and I really did NOT know what to do… I looked through the new DSP and found… Hey Sports Fan and made it work. I hope he likes it.

Hey Sports Fan DSP & Sports Event Dies B’day.1

The background DSP is from this Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP. The ‘ticket and flag banner are die cut from one of the papers using the Sports Event Dies. The stars I fussy cut and added Shimmer Crystal Effects for a bit more shine and dimension. You can clearly see I die cut the ticket twice: once from the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP, and the background for that from Night of Navy card stock. I cut the Night of Navy piece in half and adhered it to the Hey There ticket with liquid glue. I added the star with a dimensional once it was dry from the Crystal Effects. The flag banner was die cut from a piece of the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP, then an additional piece was added die cut in Bumblebee card stock, I took the Wink of Stella pen and covered the word with it to extra glam.

Hey Sports Fan DSP & Sports Event Dies.2

I put dimensionals on the back and set it aside. I die cut a strip of stars from another piece of the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 and adhered it to a slightly wider strip of Night of Navy. I stamped the ‘YOU’ using the Slim Slayings stamp set, by just inking the word in Evening Evergreen ink and stamping it on a scrap of Very Vanilla . I fussy cut around it, making it a rectangle. I also used Wink of Stella on the letters to give them more importance.

Time to put this card and it’s parts together…

  • card base is Evening Evergreen 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 14
  • Night of Navy 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
  • Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP 4 x 5 14 adhered to Night of Navy panel. Put dimensionals on the back and add to card base.
  • Adhere the ‘Hey There’ ticket with liquid glue
  • Add the die cut flag banner with dimensionals
  • Add the star strip with liquid glue 1/2″ from bottom
  • Cut a length of Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack in Real red and add to the back of the YOU rectangle. Put dimensionals on the back and add just above the star strip
  • Add three Matte Decorative Dots for more notice. (I just realized these dots are retired as of Jan 4, 2022.)So instead… with Blends, color three Pearl Basic Jewels in Dark Poppy Parade, let dry and add them!
  • Card front is done!
Hey Sorts Fan DSP B’day, inside.3

For the inside, I die cut another flag banner from the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP and adhered it to a Very Vaniila piece 4 x 5 1/4). I stamped the sentiment using the Special Moments stamps set (NEW) making sure to bend it to follow the curve of the flag. This was stamped in Poppy Parade ink. I cut a length of stars from another piece of the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 and adhered it 1/2: from the bottom, then added the panel to the inside of the card. I added another larger fussy cut star (coated in Crystal Shimmery Effects) to the inside of the card, VOILA! the card is done!

For the envelope…

Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP.4

The envelope flap got another piece of Hey Sports FAN 12 x 12 DSP. For the front, I stamped the uber cute sentiment in Poppy Parade ink using the Special Moments stamp set ~ and the card was d-o-n-e… I’m hoping our grandson will like this!

And that was it! It’s a fun, cheerful card ~ and I hope he likes it.
