Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite Masculine Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks stamp set and Ornate Layers dies from the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue to create my masculine thank you card today. It was quick and it was easy!

  • Starting with Old Olive 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ card stock, score @ 4 1/4″
  • Cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz 4 ” x 5 1/4″. I appreciate how these two greens work together.
  • Cut a piece Ornate Garden Specialty DSP with the largest die in the Stitched Rectangle dies. Using liquid glue, adhere this to the Pear Pizzazz.
  • Cut a piece of Gold Foil from the Ornate Layers dies. Put dimensionals on the back and attach to the Pear Pizzazz and Ornate Garden SDSP.
  • Cut a strip of Basic Black 1/2″ x 5″. Adhere using snail to the center of the Gold Foil.
  • Cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz about 1 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. Run your embossing buddy across this to remove all static. Stamp the front sentiment with Versamark ink and sprinkle with Black embossing powder and heat set. Once cooled, cut this out with another of the Ornate Layers dies. Color six Rhinestone Basic jewels with Black Stampin’ Up! blends and adhere as shone. Adhere dimensionals to the back of this piece and attach, centering it, over the black strip.
  • Almost done with the front… Add dimensionals to the large Pear Pizzazz and attach, centering, to the Old Olive card base. This card now has three layers on dimensionals and shows such depth and beauty. I love it!

The inside…

  • Cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz 4′ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to the card base with liquid glue.
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White 3 3/4″ x 5″. Stamp the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Adhere a strip of the Ornate Garden SDSP 1/2″ x 5″ toward the bottom as shown. Adhere the Whisper White to the Pear Pizzazz already attached to the inside of the card and voila!

The envelope flap… adhere a piece of the Ornate Garden SDSP, cut to fit. Your card is ready to share, send, give.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you like this masculine card. I think it looks really elegant. And.. it will fit inside the gift bag from yesterday’s post. Lucky man!!!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden SuiteTreat Bag or Card Holder

Hello again… We have had some beeeeauuutiful weather here lately – jonquils and some daffodils are up and blooming; and the hellebores are stunning. The only thing is, I’ve been feeling really punky and haven’t been able to get out and do my garden thing. I’m better mind you, just not up to snuff yet.

Today’s post is more of the products from the Ornate Garden Suite. I had used one of the dies to cut one of the gorgeous papers and needed to cut it down. Well – I didn’t line it up properly and goofed but I couldn’t bring myself to throw that piece out, so I tried again and it worked the way I intended. That stitched (almost) square with the cute scallop using the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP is the result. Take a look see.

Isn’t this fun? Here are the deets:

  • Copper Dotted Treat bag, fold over the top and punch two holes.
  • Cut out a square using the Layering Squares dies, scalloped of course – Terracotta Tile cs and adhere using snail.
  • The next layer is that stunning paper  (Ornate Garden Specialty DSP) using the Ornate Layers dies and cutting it down to almost a square. It isn’t perfect, but I liked that I made it work. Adhere this layer with dimensionals.
  • The next two layers: Mint Macaron cut using the Ornate Frames dies and Whisper White cut using another framelit from that set.
  • The top layer uses the smallest of the Layering Squares dies. It has been stamped with a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.
  • The ribbon is from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack and uses the Terracotta Tile from the set.

My plan is to make a card to put in this bag, and of course it would need to be in a larger size envelope due to the size of the treat bag. Perhaps you’ll see that card tomorrow. Good plan, right? Remember… this Ornate Garden Suite will become available to customers beginning Apr 1 – May 31and will be listed in the new Annual ’20-’21 Catalogue, but probably not available as a suite of products.

Stampin’ UP! Clubhouse fun fold card

Hello – today’s card is definitely masculine and I hope you like it. It can be used for a birthday, congratulations or simply a friendly card. I created it for someone who is a golfer and just needs a ‘pick me up’. Here it is…

What do you think? One of the aspects about SU! that I like so much is that colors coordinate pretty much across the board. When they package their Designer Series Paper, it lists on the back of the package coordinating colors for that particular design. And what I’ve learned is often other shades of a particular color,  say green, may work in nicely as well. And that’s what I did on this card – worked in a different shade of green.

Here are the details…

  • Cut a piece of thick Whisper White cs 6 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, scoring on the long side at 2″.
  • Cut a piece of Country Club DSP 1 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere using liquid glue to the left portion of the card front. Refer to the photo for help.
  • Using Night of Navy ink, stamp both the sentiment as well as the golfer from the Clubhouse stamp set on Whisper White card stock. Using the Golf Club dies cut out the golfer and JUST the Greatest Guy part of the sentiment.
  • Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies and Pear Pizzaz cs, cut out a rectangle large enough for the golfer.
  • Using the next larger die from Stitched So Sweetly dies, cut a piece of Night of Navy cs.
  • Using liquid glue, adhere the Pear Pizzaz to the Night of Navy cs. Using dimensionals, adhere the golfer to these two pieces. See photo for placement. Set aside.
  • Cut another piece of DSP 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to the inside of the card.
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White  2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ for the inside. Stamp in Night of Navy ink accordingly. I used the golf ball and this wonderful sentiment. When you look at the photo of the inside of the card, you will see that I separated this into two sections. There’s a simple explanation for that… I goofed when stamping and stamped the sentiment upside down! I was so annoyed with myself. So how to fix it? I simply cut it into two sections 🙂

Back to the front and adhering the panel to the card front.

With the card closed adhere the panel approximately 5/8″ from the left, top and bottom. This will mean it is pretty well centered on the card. I put the glue on the card front instead of the panel cuz I wanted to be sure not to have glue where it wasn’t needed.

Now complete the inside. Open the card and adhere the Whisper White panel to the inside so it is approx. 7/8″ from the fold, bottom and and right edges. What you want to be certain of is that this panel does not show when the card front is closed.

Remember to decorate the envelope – no “naked” envelopes please! And be certain to sign your card. People love to see your name or initials on there.

I hope you like today’s card. Masculine cards are sometimes tricky to create but I like the way this turned out.

Sale-a bration is quickly coming to an end – Mar 31. If you are still wanting to pick up any of these fabulous products do so right away. Reach out to me if you have questions – love to hear from you.

May you have a beautiful day. Make someone happy by sending them a handmade card.

 

 

 

 

February Paper Pumpkin from SU!

Extra short post today but I wanted to share with you my current creations with the February PP kit. PP is such a treat to receive with all the embellishments, glue dots, dimensionals, card stock AND directions. I usually create one or two per directions that come with the kit, but not always. Here’s what I’ve done thinking “outside the box” …

Questions about PP? Please contact me for more details… now is a great time to invest in this monthly subscription. If you are interested in the March subscription you may order until Mar 10. One of the ideas SU! is using is coordinating the PP with current stamp sets. WOW, does this make it even more valuable for future use.

For now – ta ta. Enjoy your day… make it better by creating and sharing what you love to do!

Wrapped in Plaid, Pine Tree Punch

Today I tackled a spinner card and it was such FUN to do. Yes, a bit tricky, but after doing a Pinterest search for a video, I figured it out. One thing to remember is whatever you want to spin, it mustg be a reversible image. There are some things I have to learn about this new computer too, like how to load my own video onto this site… And this card with the spinning tree is cute! Until I learn how to do that – still shots of the card are what I have.

The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler. Additional card stock used is Whisper White, Shaded Spruce, Wrapped in Plaid Specialty DSP. Other supplies include: Pine Tree Punch (a carry over item to 2020 BTW!), and 2 3/8″ Stitched circle die, clear thread, Tear ‘n Tape, Tombow glue and Toile Tidings Glitter enamel dots, and finally Glimmer dots from the Christmastime Is Here Suite.

Online Extravaganza + Card

What a great last two days of stamping and creating! Yesterday it was eye pillows for our daughter who is teaching a class about Essential Oils (Young Living to be exact). I made 7 and they turned out so cute :o) Sorry – no picture of those. Today it was making a birthday card for my brother-in-law and I used some new paper from the Mini Catalogue – whee! The paper is from the Clubhouse Suite… this Designer Series Paper is called Country Club DSP and is very masculine – golf themed on one side, plaids and argyle on the other. Here’s the card I created:

And here are the stats:
* Crumb Cake CS – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4; 1 1/2 x 5 for banner (trimmed w/ the Triple Banner punch
* Whisper White CS – 4 x 5 1/4 (cut one for inside as well) + 2 1/4″ square for 2″ circle punch
* Country Club DSP – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 + 3/4 x 5 1/4 for inside + piece for envelope flap (2 1/4 x 6)
* Garden Green CS – 1 1/2 x 4 trimmed down w? Triple Banner punch
* Night of Navy CS – about 2 1/2 square, cut down w/ Starburst punch
* Bakers Twine – Night of Navy/Sahara Sand for bow
* Perennial Birthday stamp set for the sentiments
* Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots
* Corrugated embossing folder for the Crumb Cake banner

And here’s a picture of the inside of the card:

Remember that tomorrow – Nov 22 – is the last day of the Online Extavaganza! See my prior post with all the deets.
Happy stamping!

Colorful Seasons

Hi Folks! Amy Koenders posted pictures on her blog yesterday of team members cards they had prepared. I’ve had several questions about mine and since I hadn’t posted info about it – it seems appropriate to do so now.

Begin with Grapefruit Grove cardstock cut to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4.

Using the stitched squares framelits, cut 3.

The large leaf in Colorful Seasons bundle was cut from Perennial Essence DSP, then the “topper” for that leaf was cut from copper foil and adhered using Tombow glue. Easy easy and it gives a gorgeous effect! Using your fingers, gently curl the leaves, cuz leaves are never flat, right? Adhere the leaf with dimensionals. I usually use at least two for a more secure holding. The cording was from the Nature’s Twine set, which is a bundle of four. I simply took my pick it tool and separated the threads to give this frayed look. Three little Metallic pearls were added for a bit of glamor. The sentiment comes from Gather Together, a brand new stamp set/ bundle in the Holiday catalogue, and was stamped in Gray Granite.

For the inside, I kept it really simple. The leaf was again cut from the Perennial Essence paper and adhered with Tombow glue. The envelope was decorated using stamps from the Gather Together stamp set – Grapefruit Grove for the pumpkins and Gray Granite for the sheaf spray on the front.

If you do not have a demonstrator and would like to have a catalogue, please contact me! Thanks for stopping by. May you have a beautiful day.
