Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship

New products are sometimes a challenge for me – what do I play with first??? I WANT to create with everything right now, and well, that’s just not possible. So, one step (sometimes baby) at a time. This is another card using the Beauty of The Earth DSP and the Beauty of Friendship bundle (includes Beautiful Trees Dies). This DSP stirred my soul, my inner self. I have a thing for trees. I wasn’t sure about this set but… I’m in love with the whole bit! here’s my card.

Beauty of Friendship, Masculine – #1

Isn’t this paper beautiful? And that fun tree image in the center is on the other side of this beautiful shaded green paper – in the Beauty of the Earth DSP. The focal image is adhered to a Bumblebee panel slightly larger and put on dimensionals. I adhered the large sheet of the shaded green DSP to a Mossy Meadow panel, again slightly larger than the DSP. Before adhering it I wrapped Linen Thread around three times and secured to the back with Seal+, then covered that with tape so it didn’t move. I put dimensionals on this large panel and adhered it to the Thick Basic White slimline card. Then the tree panel (with dimensionals on the back) was centered and attached over the Linen Thread. I toyed with putting more ‘stuff’ on the front, sentiment or rhinestones, but I really liked it very simple.

How cute is that little bush and the cardinals? The bush is a die cut from the Beautiful Trees Dies using another one of the papers in the Beauty of the Earth DSP pack. The birds are another die in this set. I ran a Real Red scrap through the Subtle Embossing Folder (retiring May 3) and then die cut them, adhered them to the bush with liquid glue then attached the bush to the inside of the card also with liquid glue.

Beauty of Friendship, Masculine – #3

This envelope was one left over from a pack I bought some time ago and I thought it would look great with this particular card. I covered the flap with more of the same shaded green Beauty of the Earth DSP and then stamped this gorgeous tree in Early Espresso ink, changing the heights of the tree as I stamped. That funny sideways line is from sitting in my drawer and it shows the seam of the envelope – ugh. Despite that I still love this finished project!

Now I want to show you the stamp set and dies of this stunning bundle…

You might remember my post from yesterday – I used this same set (see? I couldn’t stop playing – and this is only the beginning!) Yesterday’s post used the same tree and one of the rectangles for the sentiment panel. I’ll definitely be back sharing more projects with this stunning suite. – It’s called Beauty of the the Earth Suite.

    Stampin’ Up! Beauty of the Earth DSP

    Oh my goodness, some of the Designer Series Papers are so different – and fun. I’m enjoying playing with them. Today’s card really showcases one of the new DSP packs and is a wonderful masculine card – Beauty of the Earth DSP.

    Beauty of the Earth DSP – #1

    Does this look like watercolor or what?! It’s just stunning. The sentiment on the front of the card AND on the envelope come from a new bundle called Beauty of Friendship, which includes Beautiful Trees Dies. I’ve adhered the DSP to a slightly larger panel of card stock, Misty Moonlight. I wrapped the Misty Moonlight ribbon (which will be retiring soon BTW) around and tied a knot. I then stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a Basic White scrap and die cut it with one of the dies from the Beautiful Trees Dies. I put dimensionals on the back and adhered it over the ribbon. I put dimensionals on the back of the larger panel and adhered it to a Basic White Thick card stock base. Voila – the card front is done.

    Beauty of the Earth DSP, inside – #2

    This is a beautiful tree outline that is part of the stamp set Beauty of Friendship and I have stamped it in Crumb Cake ink. I have also added a thin strip of the Beauty of the Earth DSP to the Basic White panel. This was adhered to a slightly larger panel of Misty Moonlight card stock and the card was complete! It is simple, it is beautiful and it is masculine.

    Beauty of the Earth DSP – #3

    For the envelope I adhered a panel of the same Beauty of the Earth DSP to the envelope flap and trimmed it to fit. I stamped the single word ‘Hello’ in Misty Moonlight ink from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set and the card is ready to go. This can so easily be a card of encouragement.

    Products for today’s card are mostly from the upcoming 21-22 Annual Catalog – to get you excited about what’s to come. I will be offering a paper share this time around and will have that information available in tomorrow’s post. I can’t wait for you to see them in person!

    Stampin’ Up! More Butterflies

    Butterfly Brilliance shines again! This is such a gorgeous stamp and die bundle and I do have a ‘thing’ about butterflies. Yesterday we had our quarterly Team Meeting and did a bit of stamping as well as business. I chose to use different colors but the layout and idea are the same. Here’s a close-up of the butterfly as I covered it in Wink of Stella after coloring it in Stampin’ Blends and the sparkle doesn’t really show well.

    More Butterflies close-up – #1

    Can you see the sparkle? Maybe just a bit, eh? Preparation:

    • Card base is Terracotta Tile 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
    • Basic White 4 x 5 1/4 (2), one for inside; enough for butterfly die cut + sentiment banner
    • 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP 3 7/8 x 5 1/8m – Terracotta Tile
    • Crumb Cake 3 3/8 x 5 1/8
    • In Good Taste DSP 3 1/4 x 5 1/8

    How to:

    • Stamp the butterfly from Butterfly Brilliance stamp set on a Basic White panel. I used Sahara Sand but would recommend Memento Black ink.
    • Color the butterfly with Stampin’ Blends. I used Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie, Smoky Slate and Color Lifter. Cover with Wink of Stella. Die cut with the Brilliant Wings Dies. Hint: I have cut my butterflies apart and really like that I can use my mini die cut machine for these dies now. Plus they are so much more versatile for me. I have aslo cut the butterfly stamps apart as well 😁
    • Stamp the In Good Taste panel with various butterflies – or just one of therm – in Sahara Sand ink. My ink pad is inky so it shows up a bit darker than I expected, but it’s still subtle enough for me.
    • Adhere this panel to the Crumb Cake piece with liquid glue. Adhere these two pieces to the 2019-2021 In Color panel, again with liquid glue. Finally adhere all this to the Basic White piece. Put dimensionals on the back and adhere to the card front.
    • Stamp your sentiment on Basic White – I did mine in Terracotta Tile ink and it comes from the Happy Thoughts stamp set. Die cut with Tasteful Labels Dies. Add to the card front with dimensionals.
    • Put dimensionals on the die cut butterfly and add to the front.
    • Add three (3) Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins and the card front is complete.
    More Butterflies – #2

    For the inside of the card… so simple. Stamp butterflies from Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on the remaining Basic White panel. Adhere this to the inside of the card and done, done.

    More Butterflies, inside – #3

    For the envelope, I used the same butterfly and stamped it on the envelope front, then covered the flap with the remaining piece of the 2019-2020 In Color 6×6 DSP. Here’s repeat of that photo.

    More Butterflies – #2

    This card is not particularly feminine – intentionally so. It’s going to a male friend of ours who just had unplanned quadruple bypass surgery. Ugh… Cannot imagine his wife not being able to visit during this time of unknown due to the pandemic. But he is to be released from the hospital quite soon – so grateful for that!

    Below is a product list of items used in today’s project. They come from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog as well as the 2021 Product Premier Butterfly Brilliance Collection, part of which will be in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog (stamp set & dies)~ and those products are available now for purchase. You will find them in the product list below. As a reminder… I’ve made it easy for you to simply ‘add all to cart’. If I can help you in any way to order these items, or others, please give me a holler. As a thank you to my customers, when the order is between $50-$150 I offer a SU! item of your choice valued at $10. Remember to use MY CURRENT HOST CODE QDCUDHDC – good Mar 1 – 15. When the order is over $150, you still receive that free gift from me, but SU! has Stampin’ Rewards that may be used for additional products, so don’t use the host code at that time.

    Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment Small Note

    Good morning… Today’s card is a sneak peek of a stamp set that will be available in the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog. You may remember that for the last couple of days we had a SU! virtual convention – On Stage @ Home. This was one of the sets we received in our goody bag after registering to attend. Love the outlining/ drawing concept of these stamps. Here’s the card…

    Enjoy the Moment – #1

    This stamp set is all about seed pods – and honestly I cannot tell you to what plants they belong. Whatever they are, they are well done! And what I did here after stamping on Whisper White card stock with Crumb Cake ink was take my Crumb Cake Blends and outline the area with the dark blends, then follow that with the light blend, but not covering the entire thing. Then I went in with the Light So Saffron blend and colored some to show it off a bit. I went back in a did a bit more highlighting with the dark Crumb Cake blend.

    Enjoy The Moment – #2

    I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake ink, layered it on a panel of Subtles 6×6 DSP with liquid glue and wrapped the Gingham Ribbon in Bumblebee around it and tied a knot, securing it with a glue dot. To complete the card front I added three Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins for added charm. All of this got dimensionals and was adhered to a Whisper White Note Card.

    The inside and the envelope…

    Enjoy The Moment, inside – #3

    Again I stamped the image in Crumb Cake ink and darkened areas with the dark Crumb Cake Blends, then going over it with the light Crumb Cake Blends. I also used light So Saffron Blends to add a bit of color. The envelope got more of the same Subtles 6×6 DSP for the envelope flap and a sweet sentiment ‘a little note’ on the front also in Crumb Cake ink. I intentionally stuck with only using the one stamp set – Enjoy The Moment to highlight many of the pods and sentiments in the set. Here’s a photo of the stamp set.

    available in the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog

    I’m really enjoying this set. The pods are beautifully drawn and i especially appreciate the sketch look.

    I hope you have enjoyed this sneak peek of one of the stamp sets in the Jan-Jun 2021 catalog. There will be more to come in the not-so-distant future. Other products for todays project may be found below.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Merry Moose Notecard

    Today’s card is just so sweet – and yet it is also masculine. It would be perfect for a man for just about any occasion, but I have chosen it to be a Christmas card. The Merry Moose stamp set and coordinating Moose Punch are a carryover from last years catalog – and I love the sentiments and images in this set.

    Merry Moose Notecard – #1

    The finished size of the notecards is 3 1/2 x 5 – a perfect size for a quick note. For this particular card I hav e adhered Merry Merlot card stock – a nice masculine color – that is cut 3 1/4 x 4 3/4. Adhered to that on dimensionals is a panel of Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP. For some added strength to the DSP I did adhere with liquid glue a piece of Whisper White slightly smaller in size.

    Next I added a length of the Black/ White Bakers Twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack, and tied it in a bow, placed a glue dot just beneath the knot to keep it in place. Then come these cute moose marching across… one in Basic Black card stock and one in Whisper White card stock. They were punched with the Moose Punch – so quick and easy! They are mounted on dimensionals as well. For a final touch I added three white elements from the All The Trimmings Embellishments and the card front was complete. I love the simplicity of this notecard.

    For the inside… and the envelope…

    Merry Moose Notecard, inside – #2

    I choose to stamp the larger tree from the Merry Moose stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink and the added grass in Garden Green ink (hard to tell that). The sentiment, also from the Merry Moose stamp set is stamped in Merry Merlot ink. For the envelope, I used the same design from the Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP and adhered it to the envelope flap. Done, done, done.

    Here’s a last look at the completed project – and as I said b efore, I love the simplicity of this card.

    Merry Moose Notecard – #3

    The product list may be found below. I hope you enjoyed today’s card. Tomorrow I hope to show you an card or two made with another of the stamp sets that will be in the Jan-Jun 20212 Mini Catalog. Until then…

    Thanks for stopping by.

    May you have a beautiful day.

    SU! Beautiful Autumn Bundle

    It’s Friday already – where did this week go? How was it – did you have a good week? We had lots of meetings this week, mostly virtual – and that’s OK. Being able to accomplish the goals is what matters. Ok – idle chatter… let’s get on with it shall we?

    Today’s card is another fall one – a masculine birthday card. And it’s the DSP that really takes center stage, although… the Autumn Punch pack from the Beautiful Autumn bundle shows itself pretty well too. This is a CASE of a card I saw by another demo: Dawn Olchefske. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Beautiful Autumn Bundle
    #1

    Let’s take a peek at how we made this card.

    • cut a rectangle with Stitched Rectangle Dies from  a 2 x 4 piece of Pumpkin Pie cs. SAVE the outside trim!
    • Using the wonderful Autumn Punch Pack, punch the leaves and acorn. And quick tip… align the right side of the punch with the paper and punch, then move to the left side and align the left sign and punch, then punch the center. And if it helps even more, lightly draw a center line that can be erased after punching.
    • Slip a DSP scrap behind it and adhere with liquid glue. There are so many possibilities in this Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP pack, but I definitely wanted masculine and this check fit that perfectly.
    • Mat on a layer of Early Espresso cs with dimensionals. But wait – some texture… I played around with several things, paper, various ribbons, even other DSP, but settled on this from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. Layer and adhere with Stampin Seal then place on the Early Espresso cs.
    • Adhere another panel of Gilded Autumn DSP to the Early Espresso card base with liquid glue. (What I would do differently here… adhere DSP to Very Vanilla OR Pumpkin Pie layer, then to the card stock base.)
    • Stamp the birthday sentiment from the Best Year stamp set with Pumpkin Pie ink on Very Vanilla cs. Die cut using the Ornate Frames Dies.
    • Adhere both the sentiment panel and the Autumn Punch panel to the card using liquid glue.
    • For a bit of ‘glam’ and added texture – add the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the sentiment panel.

    For the inside… and I really like how this turned out!

    Beautiful Autumn Bundle – inside
    #2

    • Adhere the saved ‘trim’ from the Stitched Rectangle onto a panel of Very Vanilla cs, using liquid glue.
    • Stamp the sentiment from the Banner Year stamp set in Early Espresso ink.
    • Adhere the punched out leaves/ acorn (from the card front) with liquid glue.
    • Adhere the Very Vanilla panel to the card base – and voila – the card is complete.

    For the envelope..

    Tag Buffet stamp set

    • Wonder of the Season Combo Pack Ribbon – the Gold cord
    • Just Jade Stampin Blends for coloring the stocking, fussy cut and placed on dimensionals
    • Pick a Punch for the sentiment tag

    Papers:

    • Just Jade cs 3 3/4 x 5 for the front panel run through the Snowflake embossing folder and 4 x 5 1/4 for the inside (this panel should have been a bit larger 4 x 5 3/8

    • Whisper White approx. 3 x 4 1/4 and die cut the background for the stocking out of the center 🙂  and approx .4 1/4 x 5 1/4 for the inside die cut

    SU! Ornamental Envelopes and Celebrations Labels Z-Fold

    Helllooooo. It’s Monday, the start of a new week. What’s your plan – who are you reaching out to? My card today is guess what – a CHRISTMAS CARD! Yep – I’m back to making them and a fun fold is always a bit exciting – and creating a Z-Fold is – just – easy. Let’s take a look…

    Z-Fold, Celebration Labels
    #1

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Fun look, right? I’ve used a few stamp sets on this card to get the sentiments or images I wanted. I love these ornaments and they were so fun to color. But I’m getting ahead of myself… Choose a DSP that will add color to the background but not compete with your main image. Here I chose Snowflake Splendor DSP and adhered it to the card front (that card stock is Pacific Point 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2). With the Celebration Labels Dies, cut one in Whisper White for your stamping and the next size larger for a nice background. You are actually cutting through the card front and the DSP and card stock layers. AND – big tip here, listen carefully – you are cutting from the back side of the card front . The reason for this is to have the plain side behind your main image and to have a decorated side when you open the card. It makes the larger die cut stand out more as well. 

    Stamp the ornaments from the Ornamental Envelopes stamp set, only using the four ornaments shown. In other words using sticky notes, tape off that section on the stamp you do not want in your image prior to inking, ink the appropriate area in Tuxedo Black Memento ink – then remove the sticky notes and stamp on the die cut Whisper White. Stamp the sentiment using the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set in Granny Apple Green. Now color the ornaments – I used: Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight  and Shaded Spruce Stampin Blends. Put dimensionals on the back and adhere to the solid color side of the larger die cut.

    For the Z-Fold: cut a strip from Whisper White 2 1/2 x 10 and score at 4 & 8. Burnish these score lines well so they make a wonderful Z. This creates ‘panels that are 4″, 4″ and 1 1/2″. The smallest panel is the end that will attach to the Celebration Dies and the opposite end will adhere to the inside of the card. With the 4″ end and the score line against the score line of the card, adhere the two together with liquid glue, centering it from top to bottom.  Look at this photo again for reference… Now it is time to adhere the die cuts for the front. With the card closed and the 1 1/2 strip facing you, place the die cut panel right into it’s place and adhere with liquid glue. Voila – the Z-Fold is created! Now you are ready to create the inside.

    Z-Fold, Celebration Labels
    #1For the inside, cut  2 panels of Seaside Spray cs 2 3/8 x 3 7/8; then cut two panels of Whisper White cs 2 1/4 x 3 3/4. Stamp your Whisper White panels. I used Yuletide Pasture stamp set ‘cuz these animals remind me of those in the stable with baby Jesus. 🙂 I stamped them in Soft Suede ink and then used the smallest of the Water Painters to ‘bleed’ the color. The collar of the sheep was colored with Poppy Parade, the bells with Daffodil Delight and the leaves with Granny Apple Green – all Stampin’ Blends. The sentiment on the sheep panel was from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and stamped in Granny Apple Green ink. The bull  got fun ornaments hung from his horns using the Little Treats stamp set and colored with Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green and the Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends. 

    Now these Whisper White panels are colored, adhere them to the Seaside Spray panels with liquid glue, then adhere to the inside of the card on the strips. This picture will help you. I apologize it’s in the wrong direction! Should have fixed that… 😦

    Now flip the card over and do something for the back – – I cut a panel of Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4, stamped the sentiment from the Little Treats stamp set in Granny Apple Green ink and adhered to the card with liquid glue. And your card is complete!!! Such fun. Love doing this.

    Hi Everyone… did I ‘get’ you with that title? Funny… what it means is Tag Buffet stamp set plus Stitched Nested Labels Dies plus Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder.  And yes, it’s a Christmas card. I counted my cards the other day and I don’t have nearly enough. I wonder what Christmas will be like this year – with the pandemic et all? But I can’t go there yet, cuz my head is not able to wrap around all the ‘what ifs’ and it certainly won’t help me to fret about it.

    We had a cord of wood delivered yesterday (that’s a stack 4’x 4′ x 8′, I think) and hubby and I carted every piece of it around to the back yard and stacked it!!! Ta da!!! Give us points folks – that’s a lot of wood to haul & stack. In fact it’s 28 cart loads – not wheelbarrow loads, cart loads. Garden carts have two wheels and are much more stable than wheelbarrows and they are larger that wheelbarrows. We would haul five loads, stacking each one as we took it ’round, then rest a bit. We did 15 before lunch and the rest after. Thank goodness it was a gorgeous day – only about 72 and very low humidity. I’ll include a photo at the end – just so you can see we did it :O)

    The card…

    This is such a cute stamp set, I especially love the Christmas images (stocking and this gorgeous ornament). And here’s what I did …

    Stamp the ornament from the Tag Buffet stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and color it with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin Blends, then fussy cut. Oh, and I colored the hangy thingy with Bronze Stampin Blends and covered that with Wink of Stella.While I was at it, I stamped the sentiment (yep, it’s from the Tag Buffet stamp set!) onto Whisper White cs with the Tuxedo Black Memento ink and fussy cut that as well.

    I die cut a Stitched Nested Label from Whisper White cs and a larger one from Tis the Season 6×6 DSP. By the way – my Magnetic Platform for the new SU! Cut and Emboss machine arrived the day before so I used that and oh my gosh – incredible! The dies didn’t move one bit!!!

    I took another panel of Whisper White cs and ran it through the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.That was. adhered directly to a Thick Whisper White card base. I then adhered the DSP stitched die cut and the Whisper White stitched die cut, again with liquid glue. For the ornament, I first punched a tiny hole in the hanger thingy and slipped a length of Gold metallic trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and glued it in place with a dot of liquid glue. The ornament then got dimensionals and was placed atop the Whisper White stitched die cut. I put dimensionals on the Merry Christmas sentiment and attached it to the bottom of the card. For a little bling I added the stunning Wonderful Gems.

    For the inside I adhered a panel of Cherry Cobbler to the card base. I then took a panel of Whisper White and stamped the sentiment from the Tag Buffet stamp set inCherry Cobbler ink. Then I stamped the ‘needles’ from Just Jade ink and placed another Wonderful Gem. This panel was adhered to the Cherry Cobbler with liquid glue and the card was complete.

    For the envelope I stamped a leaf ‘spray’ from the Tag Buffet stamp set in Just Jade ink. For the envelope flap I took several strips of Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Tis the Season 6×6 DSP and another Whisper White and adhered them then trimmed to fit. Fait accompli – card is ready!
