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!

  • 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..

This was a bit of a new format for this card, lots of layering and fairly simple, so wasn’t sure tons of directions were necessary.

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…

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.

SU! Tag Buffet Plus

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.

#3

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!

Amy’s Inkin Krew Blog Hop

Hi y’all… so exciting … Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop – theme is ‘Halloween Fun’. I can’t wait to see what everyone is sharing today…

I have to be up front with everyone, I’m not much into Halloween. My Mother was – she got all dressed up every year – she & Dad were in a Halloween group that got together only once a year – big party, costumes, never knew where the party was… they had a designated meeting place and would caravan for 30-45 minutes to the party site. I. was. horrified… My Mother always came up with these outlandish ideas for costumes and they most often won best costume. Me? Not so much. so, fair warning, my card is… tame, understated, not scary.

Autumn Essentials Dies
AIK Blog Hop, Sep
#!

Pumpkins are an essential part of Halloween. We carve them – a family event usually, and do – well, not the traditional carving. It’s a witch or a cat, or a scarecrow, or something like that – not a pumpkin ‘face’ . We started this when we moved to NJ – 34 years ago and have had LOTS of fun with this. It’s usually pretty cold – and messy. I set up a table (or two or three) in the garage for carving. Did I say it’s messy? it’s messy! In the past we have had some friends over too, but you know, this year that probably won’t happen – it will just be family.

I digress… back to the card… Crushed Curry cs run through the Tasteful Textiles embossing folder creates a wonderful background. On this go three Stitches Shapes (squares, the smallest) adhered with liquid glue about 1/2″ from top and left side. Then comes the pumpkin part – so F-U-N… drop Stampin’ Ink on a wet wipe in the colors Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry. TIP:… I put my wet wipe on a glass that used to be part of a picture frame. The glass edges have been covered in Duct Tape or something similar so there are no raw edges that might cut. This keeps your work surface dry. Here’s what the wet wipe looks like…

Wet wipe technique

Next I took a piece of Pumpkin Pie cs and put it on top of the ink splotch. This gives the paper an uneven color – as you see in the pumpkins. I then die cut the two pumpkins with the  Autumn Essential Dies. I die cut another set in plain Pumpkin Pie as I wanted the detail of the pumpkin plain, not colored. I also die cut the outline of the two pumpkins. I laid the detail pumpkin on. top of the outline pumpkin and adhered the two together with liquid glue. Then I took the colored pieces of the pumpkin and inserted them into the appropriate fitting place for each pumpkin. Voila – gorgeous pumpkins! These were adhered to the card front embossed panel with dimensionals. I added a Linen Thread bow by tying it around the larger pumpkin stem and frayed the ends. I added Curry embossed panel to a piece of Cinnamon Cider with liquid glue. This got dimensionals and was adhered to a Pumpkin Pie card base. For a bit of glitz and fun I added Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins – five of them.

For the inside… Very Vanilla cs and Festive Corners stamp set… Memento Black ink for the web, wet wipe inks for the spider and for the word SPOOKY. It isn’t very spooky really, but nonetheless, I like it! I adhered this to Cinnamon Cider cs with liquid glue and then into the card base, also with liquid glue. And the card is complete…

Festive Corners for the inside
#3

For the envelope I embossed a panel of Pumpkin Pie cs with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and adhered it to the envelope flap with liquid glue, trimmed it to fit. I then stamped ‘Happy Haunting’ with ink from the baby wipe onto the front of the envelope. This sentiment comes from the Celebration Tidings stamp set. (this set is so versatile!)

SU! In Good Taste DSP – Masculine Card

Hi Everyone – it’s… Thursday – almost Labor Day weekend… can you believe it? I cannot. As long and slow as this pandemic has been, time did not slow in any way… And guess what? The Kentucky Derby is also this weekend. I enjoy horse racing and this one in particular, for some reason and plan on watching it.

The card today was made for two specific reason… 1) last week I did a Christmas Card with this same layout and mentioned in my post how easy it would be to ‘transition’ to a masculine (or other sort) of card; reason #2 my friends hubby just had shoulder replacement and it seemed perfect for that.

In Good Taste

What I did… cut three strips of coordinating In Good Taste DSP. Layer on an Early Espresso panel with liquid glue, then onto the Gray Granite card base, also with liquid glue. Cut a length of  Vanilla 1/2″ ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. Adhere with just a bit of Stampin Seal. Over this goes a banner on dimensionals. Banner: Early Espresso cs cut with the Ornate Frames Dies (gosh these are versatile!!). Stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla scrap and die cut with another of the Ornate Frames Dies. Adhere to the Early Espresso banner with liquid glue; add dimensionals and place over the ribbon. Bingo – your card front is done!

For the inside.. on a panel of Very Vanilla, stamp the leaf/ fall floral bouquet in stamped off once Crumb Cake ink. Over the top of this stamp the sentiment from Healing Hugs stamp set in Early Espresso ink. Adhere the completed Very Vanilla panel to Early Espresso cs with liquid glue then add to the card base the same way. yes – card completed…

In Good Taste – Masculine
inside

In the last photo I’m hoping you can see that I dry embossed the envelope flap after adhering Early Espresso cs to the flap. I used the Tastful Textile 3D embossing folder. The front of the card got another of those floral/ leaf bouquets. And this card is ready to send! Actually – it went out in yesterday’s mail 😊

SU! In The Pines Bundle

Ever have one of those nights when you can’t sleep? Well, that was my night last night – restless, wide-eyed. No doubt I will be worthless most of the day because of that. But for right now, I’m writing my post – and that’s a good thing… In The Pines… I’ve had this bundle for a while and it’s been ‘calling’ me to play, but I kept pulling out other stamp sets or Dies. It is so versatile, some marvelous tree dies. I got busy and created two cards, each very different from the other. Let’s take a peek…

In The Pines w/ coordinating Pine Woods Dies
Card #1
In The Pines w/ Pine Woods Dies
Card #2

Aren’t these trees gorgeous? Card #1 is two die cuts: the intricate part and the outline die. I used the outline after die cutting the detail in white then used the outline again for the green of the tree. The Tree in card #2 is a single tree. The background is the fabulous Evergreen Forest 3D embossing folder.

Let’s go back to card #1 and re-create it… With the Pine Woods Dies, die cut the detail of the tree from Whisper White cs. Then use the outline die to create the tree. Die cut another tree outline from Shaded Spruce cs and adhere the white tree to it with liquid glue. TIP: You could use an adhesive sheet for the detail of the tree and adhere it to the green that way, but I didn’t think of that until later. 

I then took one of the papers from the Plaid Tiding 6×6 DSP and die cut a panel using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the tree to that DSP with dimensionals. Using a larger Stitched Rectangle die, I cut a panel from Shaded Spruce cs. I adhered the DSP piece with the tree to the Shaded Spruce panel with dimensionals. This was then adhered to a Whisper White Note Card with liquid glue. I next attached a Star Element for the tree top, and a copper bow from the Basketweave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack. For the final touch of the front, I adhered Elegant Faceted Gems, both the white and the clear. To me this makes it look as though there are several presents under the tree :O)

For the inside I stamped the tree outline in Shaded Spruce and then the tree ‘filler’ in Garden Green stamped off once. It’s a very cute small tree. For the envelope I used the same Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP to cover the envelope flap then stamped the same tree from the inside of the card to the envelope front. And Card #1 was complete!

Card #2 I did very differently… I took a panel of Whisper White cs and ran it through the Evergreen Forest 3D embossing Folder. I then took a cosmetic brush and tapped it into a Shaded Spruce ink pad and smoothed it around adding color to the paper. I did the same with Garden Green and Granny Apple Green ink. This gave the tree wonderful dimension making them look similar to a real forest :). For the sky I again used the cosmetic brush with Balmy Blue first then an overlay of Seaside Spry. These were done very lightly but it shows clearly.  I adhered this to a larger Whisper White panel with liquid glue. This then was added to a Garden Green card base with dimensionals. I die cut another tree using the Pine Woods Dies from Whisper White and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped in Garden Green ink on a Whisper White strip and comes from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. I cut a banner for the end and adhered it with dimensionals. Here it is again…

In The Pines w/ Pine Woods Dies
Card #2

For the inside I took one of the tree stamps from In The Pines stamp set and stamped it in Garden Green ink on a Whisper White panel. This was adhered to the inside of the card with liquid glue. For the envelope I stamped the same trees both to the card front and the envelope flap. And card #2 was complete! What a fun bundle… I encourage you to try it.

SU! Snow Wonder Stamp Set/ Dies

Tuesday, this musty be Wonderful Wednesday 😁… hee hee hee. And… time for another Christmas card! I know, I need to make some cards using items from the 2020 Annual Catalog, but Christmas, well, I can’t seem to get enough. This is such an EASY card, you could make several using papers from any of the Designer Series Papers and make it fall themed or a thank you or a birthday or even a sympathy card, make it masculine or super feminine. Here goes…

Can you see how you could remake this card? Another post 🙂 The Designer Paper used here is called Heartwarming Hugs DSP. One of the greatest parts of SU! (and I know I have said this before, but..) is how they coordinate. The pack of DSP can so easily be interchanged without thinking too hard. Three strips were cut and adhered to a panel of Whisper White cs and that was adhered to the Pear Pizzazz card base – all with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from Snow Wonder stamp set on a Whisper White scrap with Pear Pizzazz ink then I die cut two banners using the Snow Time Dies, one in Pear Pizzazz and the stamped one in Whisper White. The sentiment banner got dimensionals and placed on top of the Pear Pizzazz banner. I took a length of the Double Stitched Satin Ribbon, 3/8″ Real Red, and looped it, adhering together with glue dots. Once I had it in place on the card front, I cut another length and put it crosswise. The banner went over this with dimesnionals on the back. I felt the front needed something more and used the All The Trimmings Embellishments, Real Red and popped them on the banner. Since they are self adhesive, easy peasy.

For the inside I took two snowflake embossing dies from the Snow Time Dies and ran them through the die cut machine. I took a sponge dauber and very lightly rubbed over them to show them off a bit more. I’m not sure the picture shows it very well. If you enlarge the photo, you can see the snowflakes. :l

For the envelope, I used several scraps from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP and adhered them to the envelope flap. And voila! Quick, easy, fun!

SU! StitchedfStars

Hi there! It’s Terrific Tuesday – why not? We can make our day terrific, or not, and this is what I choose – terrific. Let’s go for it…

Today’s card is made with a die set that came out last year called Stitched Stars Dies. For the inside I used a stamp set from the new Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog called Snow Wonder. They worked beautifully together.

Stitched Stars Dies

This is very 3 D as the large star has three dimensionals in its middle. Tis The Season 6×6 DSP  is the centerpiece for this card. I love the contrast of another panel of the same DSP in the background. So let’s talk particulars… Die cut the 6 stars – I happened to use the same paper for all the stars and die cut them all at the same time. Then I took the largest star and scored it…from the center, score to all five points then score again from the center to each of the inner points of the star. Fold along the pointy score lines just with your hands and press firmly. Then fold in the opposite direction (valley) each of side score lines. it creates mountain/ valley creases. Before adhering, let’s prepare the card front panels.

Cut a panel of the Tis The Season 6×6 DSP that coordinates/ contrasts with the die cut stars. Behind this is a panel of coordinating cs – Cherry Cobbler. Both have been adhered to the card front with liquid glue. Now you are ready to place the stars. (Card cuts may be found at the end of this post.)

Put dimesnionals in the center of the star – I stacked three – and place on the front of the card panel. Place the other stars where you desire. I cut mini dimensionals in half to put on three of the other stars, stacking two of them together just with liquid glue. Only the smallest star was adhered to the card front with liquid glue. The three stars on dimesnionals also got a Real Red gem from Wonderful Gems pack. I felt the large star needed something so searched my embellishments and found – drum roll here – Star Designer Elements – and placed one in the large star center. Voila – card front is complete!

For the inside, I adhered a panel of Cherry Cobbler cs to the Thick Whisper White card base with liquid glue. With regular Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment in the center with Cherry Cobbler ink and the Snow Wonder stamp Set. I then stamped the trees, stamping off twice, over the sentiment with Garden Green ink. It’s important to stamp off at least twice so this delicate sentiment shows through the trees. Adhere to the inside of the card. Done, done.

For the envelope I used a coordinating red panel of Tis The Season 6×6 DSP for the envelope flap.

So what do you think? So simply done but a very effective standout card. I do hope you will try this and share your results with me.
