Stampin’ Up! Words of Cheer Notecards

Hi friends. It’s Saturday and the last day of our OnStage@Home Stampin’ Up virtual convention :O(. There is always lots of inspiration and ideas AND the viewing of the next Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog + the Sale-a-bration items as well!. Oh my! Some really fun new products that I think you’re going to love. Can’t wait to share the catalog with you… but not just yet. We have to wait a bit for that. My notecards today are a direct CASE (Copy And Share Everything) of Tami Wilson. I used some different ribbons, but the idea is strictly hers. Give credit where credit is due, right? With various card stocks and DSP, these would be perfect thank you notes, sympathy cards, etc. Of course, change the sentiment as well 😏…

Words of Cheer Notecards.1

These are so fun & easy I couldn’t resist – and they are the perfect size to use as a gift or a thank you. They would fit in our mini Paper Pumpkin boxes if you wanted to get really fancy. :O)

Here are the details:

  • Basic White notecards & Envelopes
  • Tidings of Christmas 6×6 DSP cut to 2 3/4 x 5
  • Cork Paper cut to 1 1/4 x 5 then die cut with the Scalloped Contours Dies
  • Black card stock cut to 1 1/2 x 2 1/4
    • stamp with VersaMark ink using the Whimsy & Wonder stamp set, then heat emboss with White Embossing Powder.
    • Die cut with Tailor Made Tags Dies.
  • Soft Succulent card stock 1 1/2 ” square: die cut holly leaves from the Christmas Cheer Dies.
  • Evening Evergreen card stock 1 1/2″ square: die cut pine sprigs from the Christmas Cheer Dies.

Putting it together:

  • Adhere the DSP to the far right side of the Note Card
  • Adhere the Cork die cut near the fold and just covering the DSP
  • Wrap the notecard three to four times with Linen Thread and tie a bow. (I also used White Bakers Twine & Red Crochet thread)
  • Add the die cut sentiment panel with dimensionals
  • decorate with the pine sprigs and holly leaves, adding with glue dots or dabs of liquid glue
  • add Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. If you want you can also add Genial Gems in the gold or Gilded Gems for extra bling
  • adhere the bow to the sentiment panel with a glue dot to secure in place.

Stampin’ Up! Time of Giving Tags

Hello again – TGIF! The OnStage@Home event began last night ~ that’s the Stampin’ Up! yearly convention ~ and lots of demonstrators were honored for their achievements. My upline, Mary Deatherage, #34 in Sales in the US & her upline, Amy Koenders #13 and a $1,000,000 achiever just recently. SPECIAL CONGRATULATIONS LADIES!!!

Time of Giving Tags

There are more dies in this bundle and I only show three here. I used the Tailor Made Tags Dies in addition to make the smallest of these + Real Red, Garden Green card stocks & Regals 6×6 DSP, layered on Basic White die cut with the Tailored Tag Dies And that adorable little bow…. from the dies in the Time of Giving Bundle. (Bundles are 10% off automatically… – just sayin’)

The two larger tags were made with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch on Basic White card stock. The snowflakes were emphasized with Wink of Stella and the 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels in Polished Pink with the Open Weave Ribbon also in Polished Pink. The Santa die cut is die cut in Real Red and layered on the Basic White piece. The ribbon is Real Red Double Stitched Satin. The sentiment is also from Time of Giving stamp set.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop Hand-Penned Petals

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Krew Thursday Blog Hop. The theme for this week is a sketch challenge and I enjoyed/ appreciated a focus :O) I have been so determined to do Christmas cards that I sometimes need to be side-tracked to something else!

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop november 1I -Sketch Challenge'

My card today reminds me of something feminine and it’s special using the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set, the Encircled in Beauty Dies and the Stitched Greenery Die. Let’s have a look see.

Hand-Penned Petals, Encircled in Beauty Dies & Stitched Greenery Dies.1

I just realized when I imported this photo that it’s really hard to see the Blackberry Bliss has been imprinted with the Stitched Greenery Die – ugh! You’ll just have to take my word for it :]

Card Basics:

  • Card base is Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.
  • Blackberry Bliss was cut 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 then run through with the Stitched Greenery Die. It was then trimmed to 4 7/8 in length and cutting that which was trimmed in half. The main panel was adhered to the card base, then one section that was added to the left. This adds an additional element for the eye.
  • Cut a piece of Thick Basic White with the largest of the Encircled in Beauty Dies.
  • Stamp with Memento Black ink the image from Hand-Penned Petals. Color with Stampin’ Blends:Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Light Blackberry Bliss
  • Add a bow tied with the Open Weave Ribbon in Fresh Freesia and add with a glue dot. Add three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
  • Put dimensionals on the back of this circle and add it to the card front, centering it on the large panel.
  • Stamp the sentiment from Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Memento Black ink on a So Saffron scrap. Add dimesnionals and attach.
inside

For the inside of the card I stamped the sentiment, again from Friends are like Seashells stamp set, this time in Blackberry Bliss ink. I really like the fonts on this stamp set and it said exactly what I needed for this card. I added the other strip removed from the front Blackberry Bliss panel, then adhered the Basic White piece (4 x 5 1/4) to the inside of the card.

Hand-Penned Petals, Encircled in Beauty Dies & Stitched Greenery Die

For the envelope, I used the Stitched Greenery Die to ‘decorate’ the envelope flap – and you can clearly see it here. For the front of the envelope, I stamped this sweet spray with Old Olive ink for the stem and Daffodil Delight ink for the flowers, which I stamped twice to make a larger spray ~ and the card is done

I can’t wait to see what the rest of the group has created with this sketch. Please use the ‘next’ button to take you to Amy Koenders of click on the name whose blog you would like to visit.

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Place SDSP

Hello Monday morning friends!I’ve created a pretty and very easy card for you today using the Peaceful Place SDSP, some Metallic Pearls and Simply Elegant Trim in silver. Let’s take a peek.

3Peaceful Place SDSP.1

This paper is so pretty ~ trees, trees, trees ~ each a little different & more beautiful on each DSP sheet. And… it glistens with silver. This is a very simple card. I’ve layered a panel 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 directly to the Thick Basic White card base. I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark ink using the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set, then embossed it in Silver with the heat tool. I used the paper trimmer to cut a 2 x 4 piece that has the same tree as the SDSP, trimmed it at the bottom with the Tailored Tag Punch then wrapped a length of Simply Elegant Trim around it and secured it in back w/ Seal+. I made a bow out of the same silver trim and adhered it with a glue dot. This was mounted with dimensionals on a piece of Silver Foil 2 1/8 x 4 1/8, trimmed in the same manner. This was added with Seal+ over the same tree for a perfect 3D look. To finish the card front I added three Metallic Pearls in Silver and the card front was done.

For the inside I again used VersaMark ink to stamp the sentiment, this time from the Evergreen Elegance stamp set, sprinkled it with silver embossing powder & heat set it. I considered adding a tree, but I really liked the simplicity of this, so left it with just the sentiment.

Peaceful Place SDSP.4

For the envelope I added another piece of the Peaceful Place SDSP to the flap then stamped the tree from Evergreen Elegance stamp set in Basic Gray. This stamped tree just pulls it all together to make this a nice card/ envelope. And there you have it.
Super pretty SDSP & a super simple card.

Hi Folks – it’s Sunday! Do you hav e your ‘Sunday go to meetin’ clothes laid out? As for me, I do know what I will be wearing :). I enjoy Sundays ~ it’s an opportunity for me to regroup, think about my week and how to be a better person. So, having said all that, are you ready to see my card today? Let me say first – this was so fun to do, I love this Words of Cheer bundle, but true confessions… I used some retired Sale-a-bration paper but you could use any DSP 😳 Here’s the card…

Cheer Fun Fold.1

Isn’t this bright? Let me tell you about the shiny white paper – I cheated! I used the Christmas Cheer Dies and some leftover ‘paper’ from the Wonderful Snowflakes to die cut the holly leaves & stars. I wanted the shine, kind of like foil, to make this stand out. More info…

Basics: Words of Cheer Bundle (includes Christmas Cheer Dies)

  • Die cut the cheer outline from Red Foil sheets
  • Die the letters from Crumb Cake. Adhere letters to the Red Foil die cut
  • Die cut the holly leavers and stars from Wonderful Snowflakes scraps. Adhere holly leaves to the back of the Red Foil die cut
  • Adhere this to a panel of Vellum 1 3/8 x 5 1/4. TIP: I recommend using glue dots to secure holly leaves to the Vellum.

Card cuts:

  • Card base – Garden Green 5 1/2 x 11 scored at 1 3/4, 4 1/4, & 6 3/4
  • Basic White panels -1 5/8 x 5 3/8 (2); 2 3/8 x 5 3/8 (2); 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
  • Coordinating DSP – 1 1/2 x 5 1/4 (2); 2 1/4 x 5 1/4 (2); 1 3/4 x 5 1/4
  • Burnish score lines firmly. see photo below for guide
Cheer Fun Fold.2

Attach papers as shown below. Remember the Cheer for the front of the card!

You can clearly see how I decorated the various panels: the holly leaves were die cut from the leftover Wonderful Snowflakes pieces; the tree is the Pine Tree punch and the ornaments are die cut from Real Red c s & Shimmer Paper with Wink of Stella added for glam (the die came from Christmas Trees Dies); the stars are also from the Cheer Dies and Wonderful Snowflakes paper scraps. There is no sentiment, but plenty of room for writing a precious message.

This is a thick card when closed and held securely by a belly band. To create the belly band: cut a length of Garden Green 1 x 11; cut a length of Basic White 7/8 x 11 and adhere together. Cut a label with the Tasteful Labels Dies from Garden Green & Basic White as shown. Stamp sentiment in Real Red ink using the Words of Cheer stamp set. Die cut holly leaves from garden Green & pine branches from Pear Pizzazz. Adhere as shown. Attach to the belly band with Tear n Tape.

Cheer Fun Fold Addition. belly band & label

This is a thick card when closed and held securely by a belly band. To create the belly band: cut a length of Garden Green 1 x 11; cut a length of Basic White 7/8 x 11 and adhere together. Cut a label with the Tasteful Labels Dies from Garden Green & Basic White as shown. Stamp sentiment in Real Red ink using the Words of Cheer stamp set. Die cut holly leaves from garden Green & pine branches from Pear Pizzazz. Adhere as shown. Attach to the belly band with Tear n Tape.

You can also see in this photo that I covered the front of the card with a panel of card stock – to protect the delicate leaves on the ‘Cheer’ front :O)

I’m showcasing another Arrow Fold card today as I have a card c lass tomorrow that is going to make this as a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 card, but will also make a 4 1/4 x 11 size card with this fun fold. I posted the other card a few days ago and you can see that card here, with all it’s dimensions and glory. Today’s card though…

Arrow Fold 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.1

This card was made with a retired DSP from the recent Sale-a-bration as a FREE product with a $50 purchase. It is called Peaceful Prints. I need lots of Christmas cards and this was a perfect use for this paper. :O) But you may use lots of other Designer Series Papers. Here are details:

Step 1 – Cutting & scoring

  • Card base: Basic Black 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 for this card. Score on the front panel from the right corner score line to the center point (2 3/4″). Do the same from the score at the left top corner to the center point. Mark 2″ up from the bottom on the short side of the front on both short sides. Score again from the 2″ mark to the center point on both sides of the front panel. Burnish well.
  • Layer 1: Basic White 5 3/8 x 4 1/8,(cut 2) Mark center on the long side on both panels at 2 1/16″. CUT from right corner to center point. Do the same from the left corner to the point. Do this to both Basic White panels. I strongly encourage marking on the back side of the center triangle the top of the triangle for both triangular panels.
  • Layer 2: DSP – Peaceful Prints 5 1/4 x 4. Mark the center point on the bottom of the DSP @ 2″. CUT from the right upper corner to the center point. Do the same from the upper left corner to the center point.

Step 2 ~ Adhering

  • Adhere DSP to correct panels. There will be a Basic White triangular panel for the inside of the card to stamp. There will be an extra set of Basic White corner panels that will not be used.
  • Add corner panels to the INSIDE of the card.
  • Turn in the front corner scores and adhere. See photo…
  • Turn the second score line (the 2″ score) and mark a line to indicate where the glue should be placed. Refer to 1st photo above. Adhere these score lines outward.
  • Add center panels to the FRONT of the card.

Step 3 ~ Decorate Front

  • Cut a 3″ square of Basic White and die cut a scalloped circle.
  • Cut a 2 3/4″ square of Garden Green and die cut a circle. Adhere together.
  • Cut a 2 1/2″ square of Vellum and die cut a circle.
  • Adhere with dimensionals, a Wonderful snowflake to the center of the Vellum circle.
  • Adhere Vellum piece with a bit of glue in the center, to the Garden Green circles.
  • Adhere this Wonderful Snowflake/ circle to the triangle on the front of the card as shown, allowing room for a sentiment banner.
  • Stamp with Garden Green ink the sentiment on a 5/8″ wide strip. The sentiment comes from Snowman Season stamp set. Trim ends with Pick a Banner Punch. Add banner to the front of the card with dimensionals on the extended panels.
Arrow Fold 8 1/2 x 5 1/2

Step 4 ~ Decorate the inside

  • With the remaining Basic White triangular panel (note the top mark on the back!), stamp the sentiment from Snowman Season in Garden Green ink.
  • Stamp snowflakes from Snowman Season stamp set in Memento Black ink
  • Adhere triangular panel to the inside of the card – and the card is done!
Arrow Fold 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, inside

Step 5 ~ the Envelope

  • Stamp the front of the envelope with the very cute dancing snowman in Memento Black ink from the Snowman Season stamp set.
  • Adhere a 2 14 x 6 panel of coordinating Peaceful Prints DSP to the flap, trim to fit & voila… another Christmas Card.
Arrow Fold 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, completed

Isn’t this a fun fold, AND a fun, happy Christmas card? I’m very please with it and think this will make a hit at our card class tomorrow. Maybe we’ll take some photos of their completed cards :O)

REMEMBER 15% OFF CLING STAMP SALE – TODAY ONLY (20TH) UNTIL 11:59 PM MOUNTAIN TIME.

Thanks for stopping by. May you have a beautiful day. Nothing beats a handmade card.

Stampin’ Up! Fun Fold Friday

Happy Friday everyone! It’s a fun fold kind of day :O) and I’m doing one I haven’t done before. It isn’t difficult but it does demand preciseness in scoring and cutting. It’s called an Arrow Fold… and here it is. No wonder it’s called an arrow fold, right?

Arrow Fold w/ Nature’s Harvest

Besides the fun fold, what makes this stand out are two things: the Harvest Meadow DSP & the gorgeous flowers which I am calling Coneflowers. Love the contrast of the color on the flowers with the Misty Moonlight paper! When I was researching this fold, there are lots of videos making this a fairly large 6×6 card, but I didn’t want something that big. The process is still the same, despite the size. The difference is in the scoring and where that second score it. Let’s get to it, shall we?

Basic – step 1

  • Cut the card base 4 1/4 x 11 (Misty Moonlight for this card), scored at 5 1/2
  • Cut two panels of Basic White 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 + one square at1 7/8″
  • Cut one panel of DSP (Harvest Meadow) 4 x 5 1/4 + one 1 3/4″ square (this is a contrasting DSP that is best non-directional, no stripe either)

Scoring & cutting – step 2

  • Card base:
    • Lay the card base full open with the front of the card facing you. Mark the center point at the bottom front (2 1/4″)
    • Score from the top right corner of the 5 1/2″ score line (the fold as it were) to the center mark.
    • Now score from the top left corner (at the fold line) to the same center point
    • With the front of the card base still facing you, mark 2″ up from the bottom front on both long sides
    • Score from the 2″ mark to the center point (same point as before)
    • Now the card front looks as though it has two ‘V’ score lines – four score lines total, all meeting at the same center point.
    • FOLD the score lines ~ first the corner to center point scores fold to the inside (burnish well), THEN the two other scores are folded outward (burnish well)
  • Panels
    • Basic White panels… Mark the center of each of the two Basic White panels – on the short side on the bottom. (2 1/16) Cut from the top right corner to the bottom center point, then cut from the top left corner to the same center point. Do this to both Basic White panels.
    • DSP panel… Mark the center point at the bottom (2″) and cut from the top right corner to the center point. Now cut from the top left corner to the same center point
    • Squares, both the Basic White square & the DSP square… cut in half on the diagonal, from one corner to the other.

Adhere appropriate panels together. There will be extra Basic White panels that have no DSP – that’s OK! Before adhering panels to the card, we need to use some liquid glue to hold the arrow on the card front in place.

  • On the card front, fold in one of the long score areas (from corner to center) and add a light layer of liquid glue; hold in place until it is secure. Fold in the other long score area (corner to point) and adhere it in the same way. The other scored area is just loose at this point.
  • Add the square pieces to the loose score points. Fold the last scored area, adhere a light bit of glue and hold in place.
Inside front panel of the Arrow Fold Card

This is the inside of another Arrow Fold card. The Misty Moonlight card may overlap somewhat.

Now adhere the panels to the card in this manner:

  • Inside of card, two side panels first… wait to add the center panel until it has been stamped.
  • Center fron panel

Decorate the front… Here I took a Stitched Triangle and cut from a Basic White piece. I stamped a splotch from Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Sahara Sand ink. On another piece of Basic White I stamped the Coneflowers image in Memento Black ink using the Nature’s Harvest stamp set. I colored the leaves & stems in Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends and the flowers in Calypso Coral & Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends I die cut the flower image with the Harvest Dies, put several dimensionals on the back and adhered it to the Stitched Triangle piece. I added a double bow of Linen Thread with a glue dot, then attached the triangle to the card front.

Arrow Fold w/ Nature’s Harvest, inside

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink, then stamped the small floral image in Memento Black ink – also from Nature’s Harvest stamp set. I colored it with the same Stampin’ Blends: Smoky Slate for the stems/ leaves, Calypso Coral & Cajun Craze for the flowers. I attached this piece with liquid glue in between the two DSP panels, making certain the areas were as even as possible. Voila! Love this!!!

Here’s another Arrow Fold card with slightly different score lines.

This card was made just a bit differently… the panel on the inside of the card was a solid one with the white panel adhered over the top. I don’t like it as much done that way. I used the Layering Circle Dies with basic White, Real Red & Vellum then a Wonderful Snowflake on top with a Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the center. The stamp set was Snowman Season for the images & sentiments and of course the Peaceful Prints DSP which was a FREE item during Sale-a-bration. The side marking was 2 3/4 in lieu of 2″. And let’s see, I also used the Banners Pick a Punch to create the banner for the front. Oh, and I added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the banner.

Stampin’ Up! Using Retired Products

Happy Wednesday! It’s mid-week and I hope it’s all going well with you… Yesterday was such a full day – no opportunity to play/create 😦 therefore, today I’m going to share several cards made with the Beautifully Penned DSP and a few current stamps & dies that I made over the weekend. They are a gift for someone who doesn’t care if the products used are current ones – so there you have it 👍

Aren’t these fun? Additional products include Scalloped Contour Dies for all three cards., Color & Contour stamp set, Seasonal Labels Dies, Loose Flower Flourishes, Pale Papaya & White Ribbon, Highland Heather Grosgrain Ribbon, Gorgeous Grape card stock, Magenta Madness card stock and Calypso Coral card stock. Love how these turned out!

After tying everything together with a pretty ribbon, this is the tag I made to go with it…

Tailor Made Tag & Pierced Blooms Dies

This was a very fun little gift to give someone who didn’t expect it and who appreciates handmade! I really mixed the colors for these blooms but love the bright cheerful look.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves

Good Saturday morning! It’s a beaut here ~ 65 degrees and a bit breezy. The day is new & fresh :O) I just recently posted (Thurs) a card with a fun centerpiece created w/ Blending Brushes & several colors. Because there was some card stock left over I decided to put it to use and created today’s card. Because of the sentiments used, it can so easily be used as a ‘thinking of you card’ as well.

Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves.1

The three squares are some of what’s remaining of the original coloring, and it’s been backed by Brushed Metallic card stock in a coppery look. The leaves were die cut from Gold/ Rose Gold 6×6 using the gold (you can see I left some of the pieces in the leaves – intentionally), Gold foil sheet and a stamped leaf in stamped off Mango Melody. The dies used are Intricate Leaves Dies which coordinates with the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set. The Cajun Craze card stock was run through the Timeworn Word 3D embossing folder and adhered to a Very Vanilla panel and attached to the Cajun craze card base with dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set and stamped on a Very Vanilla scrap with Pumpkin Pie ink then fussy cut & also adhered with dimensionals. The three leaves were glued in place and a glue dot was used to adhere a double strand bow of Linen Thread.

Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves.2

For the inside…. I used stamped off Pumpkin Pie ink for the leaves, sometimes third generation. The splotch was made with Mango Melody ink ~ both from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla. The sentiment is again from Heartfelt Wishes stamp set, stamped in Pumpkin Pie…. and the card was done! Kinda nice having left-over pieces to create a card. :O)

Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves.3


For the envelope I used the same process as the inside of the card… stamped off Pumpkin Pie for the leaves and Mango Melody ink for the splotch – both on a Very Vanilla envelope.

Here is a photo of the ink colors used to create the original panel with the Blending Brushes.

Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves.4
