SU! Warm Hugs Bundle

It’s Monday – and a glorious day! I’m thankful for so much… and one of those I have the opportunity to play with some amazing SU! products. What I did prior to SU! was just muddle around in mediocre stuff. Once I found SU!, there was no turning back. All products are made well; products coordinate. I can’t say enough. So if you are ‘on the fence’, jump in. I’ll help you navigate and create – we could make a great team. Contact me at tlsbrightspot@gmail.com and let’s talk about how to make this happen.

For today’s card I pulled out a stamp set I haven’t used before – yep – from the amazing Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog. It’s called the Warm Hugs Bundle and is actually part of a suite of products that can be found on pages 8-11. I used many of the products from the suite but incorporated some other items as well.

Warm Hugs Bundle #1

I started with a Crumb Cake card base. Then took a panel of Mossy Meadow cs and ran it through the Wrapped in Texture embossing folder twice. This embossing folder is narrow, and probably is not meant to emboss a card front, but I did and think it turned out really well. I took a strip of Heartwarming Hugs DSP cut a banner at the bottom and adhered it with liquid glue to the card front. I took another very narrow strip of this same DSP, cut a side angle at the bottom and slipped it under the right of the banner. Next I took the Mossy Meadow Diagonal Stripe ribbon and wrapped it back and forth on the card front, adhering in various places with Stampin Seal. The sentiment was extra fun and easy to create using the Warm Wraps Dies and the Warm Hugs stamp set. Don’t you love this hexagonal look?

Stamp the sentiment in Real Red ink on a Whisper White scrap. The sentiment comes from the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set which is part of the Heartwarming Hugs Suite of products. Stamp the hexagonal decoration around it in Mossy Meadow ink and die cut with the Warm Wraps Dies. Put dimensionals on it and adhere to a circle cut from Pear Pizzazz cs. That circle also is in this die set. The Pear Pizzazz also got dimensionals and was adhered over the Diagonal Stripe Ribbon.  Since the card front is complete, let’s move to the inside.

Warm Hugs #2

So, so simple but I love how the inside coordinates with the outside… another strip of DSP adhered to Whisper White panel. This was adhered to Mossy Meadow and attached to the Crumb Cake card base. And voila, your card is complete!

Warm Hugs Bundle #3

For the envelope I stamped a fun little cup in Mossy Meadow, then the steam rising from the cup in Crumb cake. The envelope flap got the same Heartwarming Hugs DSP as the card front. Fait accompli! While this card is done in Holiday-type colors, it could so easily be used as a card of encouragement or a birthday card, and it’s a bit masculine too.

SU! Yuletide Pasture Slimline Card

Oh what fun …I loved making this card… it’s..um.. different. Who would have thought I would like this stamp set so much. (Yuletide Pasture).. but once I started, well, it struck my fancy 🙂 I’ll be honest, I don’t know what this beast is called – maybe an ox? But it has this undisturbed look, with ornaments from its horns. I mean, what NOT to like! So here we go…

The card base is Crumb Cake and it’s a slimline card, so l-o-n-g. And this hairy ox is stamped in Soft Suede, just lying there, with ornaments on its horn on a Whisper White piece. I then took the fine tip water painter and brushed it across the ‘hair’ of the animal to give it some color, but not too much. I did the same to the antlers. Then I colored the ornaments with various shades of blue Blends and added a stripe of Just Jade on each one. The Blends used.. Night of Navy, Seaside Spray and Misty Moonlight. The beast looked incomplete so I added a bow using Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack, specifically the Misty Moonlight/ Silver Bakers Twine. I completed the bells by adding the sparkle of Wink of Stella.I put dimensionals on the back and set it aside.

For the layering on the card front… Pacific Point and the lovely Snowflake Splendor DSP. The banners are again Pacific Point and Crumb Cake with the sentiment stamped in Soft Suede. I used the Banner Pick A Punch for the ends. 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots completed the look for the banner. Once these were placed where I wanted them, I added the ox panel with dimesnionals.

Yuletide Pasture #1

The inside is another adorable beast stamped in Soft Suede on the Whisper White panel , then the fine- tip water painter was used to add color and depth. The neckband/ bells uses Blends in… Poppy Parade, Call Me Clover and Mango Melody. I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede as well.The Whisper White panel was adhered to Pacific Point with liquid glue and that in turn added to the Crumb Cake Card base, again with liquid glue. Voila – fait accompli’. I love this simple card and hope you do as well.

Yuletide Pasture #2

This wonderfully fun stamp set can be found in the Aug-Dec 2020 Min Catalog on pg 28. Here’s a link to the cattie to help you find everything.

SU! Tasteful Touches

Hi Everyone – I tried something new for me today – does that surprise anyone? Maybe we shouldn’t go there… I saw a video by Kylie Bertucci, a very creative demonstrator from Australia and had to her ideas a ‘go’. Here’s the completed card…

Tasteful Touchers – Feather
#1

Can you see the sparkly on the background? It’s sprinkled embossing powder! This is done on Basic Gray cs and I love the look. So here’s what I did… First, swipe the card stock with your embossing buddy to remove static and create a ‘clean’ surface. I tapped the Versamark ink pad around the perimeter of the card stock – no need to do the center since it was to be covered. Then I sprinkled the silver embossing powder with my fingers, keeping the powder light and not clumping or globbing – then I heat set it. Fun look. Yes, I SHOULD HAVE taken a picture at that stage – but didn’t really think about it until just now 😳 well – silly me…

The rest of this card is so very simple: using the feather image from the  Tasteful Touches stamp set, stamp randomly in stamped off once Basic Gray ink on Whisper White card stock. I then took a sponge dauber and Gorgeous Grape and did very light sponging on the feathers. I love this color and it gives the feathers a totally different look. This was mounted on Gorgeous Grape card stock with liquid glue. I wrapped a length of the Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding around these two pieces and tied a knot. I put dimensionals on the back and mounted it on the silver sprinkled, heat embossed panel of Basic Gray. This then was adhered to a panel of Whisper White with liquid glue. This was adhered to the Basic Gray card base. As the final step, I took a 5/8″ strip of Basic Gray, rubbed it with the embossing buddy then stamped the sentiment from the In The Pines stamp set in Versamark. I sprinkled it with silver embossing powder then heat set it. The final length is about 2″. This strip got dimensionals and was placed over the ribbon.

The inside is even simpler yet – a single stamped feather in several times stamped off Basic Gray ink on a Whisper White panel. This was mounted directly to the card base with liquid glue.

Tasteful Touches – inside
#2

I started the main panel with the feathers as a larger piece. Once I cut it down to the size I wanted I saved the strips and adhered one of those to the envelope front. And that was it – the card was complete. This could so easily be a masculine card. It IS however, going to a young woman who is battling cancer – and loves purple. It will be gone by the time you read this post.

SU! Love of Leaves Bundle

Fall is such a great time of year… and this card says ‘Fall’ all over it. This stamp/ die set is just so lovely – can be used for masculine cards for sure, which I sometimes have a hard time making. But this was so easy peasy and I love how it turned out.

Love of Leaves bundle #1

I kept the look really simple and clean, using the Stitched Leaves Dies as the main focus. Aren’t they stunning? What I especially like about them is the way they have a stitched border around the leaf die cut and the leaf embossing with another die. With one roll through that die cutting machine  I was able to cut the square with the Square Dies AND one set of leaves in Very Vanilla cs! The border color is one of the new In Colors – Cinnamon Cider – a gorgeous shade of golden brown. That was cut with a Square Scalloped Die. The rectangle for the largest leaf was die cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies, again in Very Vanilla.

I adhered the Very Vanilla square with the leaf ‘hole’ to the Cinnamon Cider with liquid glue. The leaf itself I adhered with dimensionals. I set those aside While I worked on the Very Vanilla background. First I located where the leaf squares would be, then laid the sentiment from Love Of Leaves stamp set in place. I moved the squares off the piece and stamped the sentiment in Cinnamon Cider ink. Then I ran it through the Tasteful Textures. embossing folder. This panel I adhered to a piece of Cinnamon Cider. I laid the leaf dies back on the textured Very Vanilla panel, glued on the squares and the rectangle with liquid glue. Then in the opening, I placed the leaves which had dimensionals on the back.

I put dimesionals on the back of the Cinnamon Cider panel and adhered to a Thick Very Vanilla card base.

Love of Leaves bundle
#2

For the inside i stamped another leaf from the Love of Leaves stamp set, stamping off twice, onto Very Vanilla cs in Cinnamon Cider. I then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in full strength in Cinnamon Cider. I should probably stamped the sentiment again ass the word ‘changes’ gets a bit lost in the leaf.. ugh.

Love of Leaves bundle #3

 

Using yet another leaf from the Love of Leaves stamp set, I stamped both the envelope flap and the front as well – in Cinnamon Cider.

This bundle can be found in the new Aug-Dec Mini 2020 catalog that goes live to customers Tue Aug 4. And when purchased as a bundle in lieu of individually, you save 10% I strongly encourage you to. put this on your wish list.

SU! Back On Your Feet Double Z Fold

Hi everyone ~ how’s it going? You doing OK? Some days during this self containment are easier than others, right? So, one day at a time just do the best you can; try not to look ahead too far cuz that can get you kinda crazy. Take the best care you can of yourself and family. Guess I’m feeling a bit philosophical this morning….

Todays card is for a friend who had surgery on their neck – a couple of fuses – and they are struggling, really struggling. I decided a little levity might be helpful and this is what I created.

Back On Your Feet Double Z Fold
#1`

Is this perfect for neck surgery or what! And it’s a double z fold which puts it up a couple of notches in being special. The World of Good Specialty DSP is perfect for this man as he has traveled around the world and then some. I doubt they will notice the significance but I certainly did while making this card.

Here are the products I used… card cuts are listed at the bottom of the post…

  • Back On Your Feet stamp set
  • Crumb Cake cs for the base of the larger Z and the smaller Z
  • Early Espresso cs for layering
  • World of Good Specialty DSP
  • Whisper White cs
  • Old World Paper 3D embossing folder
  • Stitched Rectangles Dies
  • Lovely Labels Pick a Punch
  • Wink of Stella
  • Crumb Cake and Early Espresso inks
  • 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots, Cinnamon Cider

When I create a card like this, I do one portion at a time – one Z fold, then the other. You can cut everything and lay it out for efficiency, but I was still working out sizes for the smaller Z. Crumb Cake is the base of the card, layer the Early espresso for all three sections of the larger Z, then layer the World of Good Specialty DSP for the three sections. For the smaller Z, Crumb Cake cs was used for the card base layer, then Early Espresso cs for the first (or front) and last (or back) layers, then DSP on the first and Whisper White for the last (for sentiment). For the front layer, the DSP was run through the Old World Paper 3 D embossing folder. Gosh that embossing folder is amazing… You can see it very clearly in this photo.

Back On Your Feet Double Z fold
#2

I don’t adhere the Whisper White panel until I have the sentiment or design on cuz – you know, mistakes happen… lol. The turtle was stamped in Early Espresso ink. Then I took my Wink of Stella and colored in the shell only. This moved the ink around a bit and gave it some variety. Then I stamped the sentiment in Crumb Cake ink.

Now that both Z folds are created I put them together… I lay the small one on to get an idea where it should sit on the larger Z. When the card is closed, we don’t want to see the last panel of the small Z at all. Once I have seen how it fits, I adhere the back panel first, then the front and it creates this wonderful Z. Take a peek at this photo from the top of the card.

Back On Your Feet Double Z fold
#3

That cute giraffe was stamped on Whisper White in Crumb Cake ink. I used the light Crumb Cake Blends to color in the spots very lightly, then covered the giraffe in Wink of Stella. Again, this moves the ink around a bit and colors the giraffe lightly. The giraffe was adhered with dimensionals. I then stamped the word OUCH! on a 1/2″ wide length of Whisper White in Early Espresso and cut the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. I added three 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots and attached with liquid glue.

The envelope flap was covered in the World of Good SDSP and then stamped on the front with the word SIGH… several times since this is such a long recovery. The card is complete and guess what – mine is already in the mail as we speak. How fast is that for a turn-around?

SU! Mini Gatefold

Hello there… Weather advisory for the East coast is to stay INSIDE today – it will feel like 104! Yeck!  Be safe…I have been doing doing several different fun folds lately and well, I just couldn’t stop… todays is a mini version, a little 3″ card for a grandson turning 20… Cannot believe he is 20! 6’4″ and handsome – oh my…I’m just a little bit prejudiced. 😍 Anyway, the card… This young man has come to expect something fun in the way of a card, not something you can buy at the store – yay.. getting them trained. :o) So here it is…

Mini Gate Fold
#1
Mini Gate Fold #2
Mini Gate Fold
#3

This is so cute – perhaps because it is small. And I just love the way the folds are… here it is from a another angle.

Mini Gate Fold
#4

Now you can really see all the folds. Here are the products used in this cute mini card:

  • Whale of a Tail DSP
  • Whisper White card base + belly band
  • Details Bands Dies – oval in Whisper White cs
  • Celebration Labels and Dies for the larger portion of the banner, Pacific Point cs
  • So Much Happy stamp set – balloons, fussy cut
  • A Grand Kid stamp set – front banner sentiment
  • Little Treats stamp set – inside sentiment
  • Pear Pizzazz and Pacific Point inks

Let’s see if I can tell you how to do this…

  • card stock base (Whisper White) is 3 x 6 scored at 1 1/2 and 4 1/2 on long side. Burnish well.
  • DSP panel (Whale of a Time) is 3 x 6. Mark center on the long side, at the top & bottom lightly with pencil. Fold from the top left to center bottom making a triangle – burnish and open. Fold from the left bottom to the center top making another triangle – burnish and open. Fold left portion to center, as in step one – burnish and open.
  • Do the same on the right side: right top to center bottom making a triangle, burnish and open. Right bottom to center top making a triangle, burnish and open. Right to center, burnish and open. It will look like picture #4 above even though it isn’t attached to anything yet. 😊
  • Cut a panel in Whisper White for inside sentiment, 2″ square. Stamp the sentiment from Little Treats stamp set in Pacific Point ink. Then stamp the party favors in Pear Pizzazz ink. Remember to stamp ON THE DIAGONAL. Adhere to the DSP.
Mini Gate Fold
#3
  • Now adhere adhere the DSP to the Whisper White card base: triangle on the left first making certain it is al the way to the edge. With the papers flat, adhere the center diagonal square then the right triangle.
  • Belly band: 1″ x about 7″ to go around in Whisper White, DSP is 3/4″ x about 7. Adhere the papers together and wrap around card. Secure in front with Tear n Tape. It should slide easily on and off the card.
  • Cut banner in Pacific Point using the smallest Celebration Labels & Dies. Put dimensionals on back and attach to belly band where it overlaps.
  • Stamp the banner sentiment from A Grand Kid in Pacific Point – off to the right side to allow room for the balloons. Cut with the oval from Detailed bands dies. Adhere with liquid glue to the Pacific Point banner.
  • Stamp balloons from the So Much Happy stamp set: one in Pacific point and one in Pear pizzazz. Fussy cut both. Adhere the larger with liquid glue and the smaller with a dimensional. Slide over the card and bingo this cute little mini is ready for giving.

I love this. Mini cards are just a different kind of treat and this one is extra special cuz it’s a Gate Fold.

That does it for today. Think about shopping during SU! Bonus Days. Items for this card are listed in the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog which goes live to customers 4 Aug. AND the 2020 – 2021Annual catalog. Don’t have a catalog or a demonstrator? Then talk to me and we can fix that 😁

SU! Wishes and Wonder Bundle

Hello… muggy day here even though it is 67 degrees. Of course it is not quite 5 AM either. Doomed to be a hot one. Yesterdays card was more ornate ~ todays is layered and more country, but still Christmas. It is a CASE of a card on the back of the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog.

Wishes & Wonder bundle
#1

Gosh, the picture is kinda dark… but I think you can see the many layers. I knew I wanted to play with the papers in ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP pack and I knew I wanted to use the stag again. I have used him before and he is so elegant. Anyway, staring me in the face was the back of the catalog and I just went for it… There are so many great dies in the North Pole Wonder Dies. I haven’t quite played with all of them yet, but it’s definitely in the cards 🙂

I started with the die that looks like a tag and die cut two of those, then went to the DSP again for a coordinating paper for the back drop. Love this plaid! I then die cut a single long leaf stem in Shaded Spruce, then played around with the ‘spray’ stamp. That I stamped in Crumb Cake on Whisper White and die cut with the coordinating circle. Notice how the tag has those jagged edges – like pinking shears? So does this particular circle! Gosh, I could go off on a tangent about pinking shears… they bring back so MANY memories. But.. the stag – one gorgeous animal… die cut from Brushed Metallic cs, not as shiny and bold as gold foil. I began layering, didn’t have papers cut yet ~ this off-center look is kinda fun, and then I put the tags together and off-centered them so both showed. They HAD to have a string ~ I found the 1/16″ Gold Cord from the Wonder of the Season Combo Pack and it brought in another element of sparkle that I like. OK, time to cut papers and put things together… and you can see the layering, all adhered with liquid glue. I debated with a banner, wasn’t sure I wanted anything more, but the card needed it…. stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink on a Whisper White scrap, added dimenionals and the card front was complete.  Card cuts are listed at the end of this post.

The inside was easy. I wanted it simple and stamped the sleigh from the Wishes & Wonder stamp set in Real Red on Whisper White. Adhered that to the inside and bingo, the card was done.

Wishes & Wonder
#2

While the sleigh was out I stamped it on the envelope front n- continuing with the Real Red ink. The envelope flap got another piece of the ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP. And that was it!

SU! Gilded Autumn Suite

Hi Everyone – so excited to share today’s card. It is hot as blazes here on the East coast and just thinking fall makes me feel cooler… so here ya go…

Autumn Greetings stamp set
Autumn Punch Pack
#1

SU! does such a great job of coordinating and this product line is no exception. The Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP is gorgeous AND there are a couple of papers in that pack that have these fun images of leaves and acorns. I used the Autumn Punch Pack to punch out a bunch of them. I also used a die set from last years catalog that is still available called Gathered Leaves Dies. They were used to die cut three leaves out of Mint Macaron that forms the beginning point of my wreath.

I’ll back up just a bit… Whisper White cs 4 x 5 1/4; die cut a circle with the Circle framelits (I used second to largest). This is your basis for the wreath! While I didn’t do it this time, I would suggest running this panel through the Subtle embossing folder to create a wonderful textured background. Then simply begin layering, beginning with those three die cut leaves. I used liquid glue to adhere all these, curling each one a bit as I went along. Once I completed the wreath, I made a fun bow with Linen Thread and attached that very sweet Acorn Trinket from the suite.  Next I took a piece of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and cut it to fit behind the open circle. I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso using the Autumn Greeting stamp set and adhered that panel with liquid glue. This was glued to a piece of Early espresso 4 1/8 x 5 3/8, then adhered to the Terracotta Tile card front (4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2). I adhered two Early Espresso strips to the card front and trimmed the ends. These were simply in my stash.

For the inside, I took a 3 3/4 x 5 panel of Whisper White and Mint Macaron ink to stamp the sweet leaves from the Autumn Greetings stamp set. This was adhered to another panel of Early Espresso cs 4 x 5 1/4 and glued in place to complete the card.

Autumn Greetings stamp set
#2

The envelope got the same treatment of leaves for the card front and the flap got special detail. I ran the Early Espresso 2 1/4 x 6 through the Greenery embossing folder, glued in place on the flap and trimmed it to fit. Voila! Obviously I’m not mailing this one just yet… out of season. But it’s ready to send to someone special.

I couldn’t help myself – got working and made 4 cards! I wanted to do a One Sheet Wonder with  6×6 paper, so the ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP in this suite was perfect for that. Here are the four cards…

Wonder of the Season Suite

Here are the measurements I used for the One Sheet Wonder:

  • 1 1/2 x 5 1/2
  • 3 x 3
  • 3 x 1 (three of these cut directly under the 3 x 3)
  • that leaves a strip 1 1/2 wide… make four 1 1/2″ squares ~ bingo, four cards!

Card #1

Wishes & Wonder stamp set
North Pole Wonder Dies #1

I used the 3 x 1 strips adhered to a panel of Cherry Cobbler 3 1/4 x 3 1/2. Additional papers used were Garden Green and Shaded Spruce for the pines, Gold foil for the stag, 3/4″ x about 5″ Cherry Cobbler for the sentiment banner (the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch was used after heat embossing the sentiment), Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack using the Gold trim, and let’s see, Cherry Cobbler ink for the circle element. This stag is stunning!

Card #2

Cherish The Season stamp set
Sounds of the Season Dies
#2

For this card, the obvious is the 1 1/2″ x 5″ strip adhered to Cherry Cobbler 1 5/8″ x 5 1/2″. The pines were stamped in Garden Green, bells die cut rom Gold Foil sheet, pine die cuts from Shaded Spruce, ribbon is Real Red Sheer 3/8″ and finally Red Rhinestone Gems. I think this is my favorite card of the four – love those bells!

Card #3

Wishes & Wonder stamp set
North Pole Wonder Dies
#3

This ribbon makes the most awesome bows! It is part of the Suite – Ribbon Combo Pack in Shaded Spruce; it’s called Argyle Stain Ribbon. Cherry Cobbler is cut 3 1/4 x 3 1/4, also the banner under the sleigh is 3/4″ by probably 4 1/2″ before using the new Banners Pick A Punch to trim the ends. The sleigh is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and I added Wonderful Gems in Real Red. Also is the Gold 1/8″ cord from the same Ribbon Combo Pack. I wanted it to look like reins!

Card #4

Wonder * Wishes stamp set
North Pole Wonder Dies
stag from the Wonder of The Season Memories & More Card Pack
#4

This card uses the four  1 1/2″ squares, more of the 1″ Argyle Satin Ribbon, stamped circle using Cherry Cobbler ink and the North Pole Wonder Dies to cut out. The stag is a sticker – yes, a sticker… from the Wonder of The Season Memories & More Card Pack. The background is a Whisper White panel run through the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. I really like this embossing folder!

Thanks for stopping by.

May you have a beautiful day.
