Ornate Garden Suite

SU!Thank You with DSP Focus

Hi Everyone! Today’s card was created for our neighbor who so generously gave us unused mulch… of course, I had to cart it uphill to our yard, but hey, it was free…  useful… and needed. So there you have it.😉 We have great neighbors! And I totally cased this card from Amy Koenders!

Here’s the card…

Ornate Thanks stamp set
Ornate Layers Dies
#1

And here’s a list of supplies…

  • Ornate Thanks stamp set
  • Ornate Layers Dies
  • Stitched Rectangles Dies
  • Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color ribbon
  • In Good Taste DSP
  • Neutral 6×6 DSP – Night of Navy
  • Night of Navy ink & cs
  • Whisper White cs
  • Smokey Slate cs
  • Versamark
  • White embossing powder

And here’s how I did it…

I started by die cutting the two rectangles for the front using the Stitched Rectangles Dies. I adhered these two together with the new Stampin Seal (it works great… has an end cap so it doesn’t stick to anything else when you put it away. I’m happy with it.) I then adhered them to the card front (Smokey Slate) with the same Stampin Seal. With Night of Navy cs I stamped the card front sentiment with Versamark ink using the Ornate Thanks stamp set, sprinkled it with White Embossing powder and heat set it. TIP… this needs to cool a bit before handling as it’s kinda sticky while still warm. I then die cut it using the Ornate Layers Dies. This was put on dimensionals and set aside. I cut a length of ribbon from the Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color spool and adhered it with the Stampin Seal. The sentiment on dimesnionals was placed over the top and centered on the card.

For the inside…

With a panel of Whisper White cs, I stamped the sentiment from Ornate Thanks stamp set in Night of Navy. I adhered a strip of the Neutral 6×6 DSP in Night of Navy 1/4″ from the bottom and added another strip of the In Good Taste DSP over the top. This was adhered to the Smokey Slate card base and the card was complete!

The envelope…

Ornate Thanks stamp set #3

Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy from the Ornate Thanks stamp set. Adhere the Neutrals 6×6 Night of Navy to the envelope flap and the envelope is complete. Wheee. Easy peasy and so perfect for our neighbors.

All of these products may be found in the new 2020-2021 SU! catalog. If you do not have a demonstrator and wish to have a catalog, contact me. Either way, here’s a PDF copy for you to browse at your leisure.

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Borders and Ornate Layers Dies

Whoa – it’s Friday! And what are your plans this weekend – stay at home you say? Us too. Praying things will turn around soon – so many lives lost and families heartbroken….

The card for today is made using Stampin’ Up! Ornate Borders Dies and Ornate Layers Dies. It’s nice they work together so well.This particular border I had not played with yet and it is so gorgeous – it could become a favorite very easily. Here it is…

Ornate Borders Dies, Ornate Layers Dies

The details:

  • Pool Party cs 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
  • Thick Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2

  • Tropical Oasis DSP 2 1/4 x 5 for the diecut plus 2 1/4 x 6 for the envelope flap
  • Shimmer Ribbon 1/4″ (from the holiday catalogue
  • Praiseworthy Prose stamp set

 

Ornate Borders Dies Ornate Layers Dies
  • Place the floral die cut from the Ornate Borders Dies on the edge of your Pool Party on the long side and run through your die cutting machine. Voila – you have this gorgeous edge! Isn’t it beautiful? There are some leaf like pieces that come out of this you will definitely want to save – just sayin’.
  • Adhere this directly to your Thick Whisper White with liquid glue
  • With your Ornate Layers Dies, run this through your die cutting machine using the Tropical Oasis DSP 
  • Run your Whisper White panel through this same machine using the stitched rectangle  from the Ornate Layers Dies.
  • Using your stamparatus, stamp your sentiment from the Praiseworthy Prose stamp set with Memento Black ink. Adhere this with liquid glue to the die cut DSP, then to the Whisper White 2 x 5 panel. Isn’t this a perfect sentiment for our times right now? It’s perfect for any time really, but certainly fits what’s going on in the world right now.
  • Wrap a length of the Shimmer Ribbon 1/4″ around and tie a bow. Hold in place with a glue dot
  • Adhere to the card front with liquid glue and your card front is complete!

For the envelope…

  • I also stamped a hello sentiment on the front of the card from the Timeless Tropical stamp set but covered it up when I took the picture… silly me! 😳

Remember to look for the Ornate Garden Suite of products premiered right now prior to the launch of the 2020-21 Annual Catalogue. Here is a flyer to refresh your memory.

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Stamp Set and Flowering Foils DSP

Todays card features the fabulous Flowering Foils DSP that was available as a free item during Sale-a-bration. I know… I shouldn’t be promoting this DSP, but honestly, ANY DSP could be used and a coordinating cardstock to create this card. I love the layout and the elegance and the simplicity.

Before sharing the card I want to apologize for not posting the past couple of days. I have been cleaning my craft room – and quite frankly could not get to my stamping table. 😒 What a nightmare! Having said that, it’s still a work in progress – not quite finished, but workable…

Ornate Thanks stamp set and Flowering Foils DSP

Here are the deets…

  • Cardstock (Pool Party) 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4; 3 1/2 x 4 1/4
  • DSP of choice – 3 cut to 1 x 4 (this is Flowering Foils and I colored it with Stampin Blends – Light/ Dark Pool Party, Light/ Dark Granny Apple Green, Dark Daffodil Delight)
  • White Crinkle Ribbon
  • Detailed Band Dies

After coloring the Flowering Foils DSP, using your grid paper as a guide, adhere the center DSP to the smaller card stock with liquid glue. Starting with this center piece allows for perfect edges and balancing. Wrap the Whisper White Crinkle Ribbon around this and tie a bow. Secure with a glue dot. Stamp your sentiment (this is from Ornate Thanks stamp set – new for the 2020-21 catalogue and available now!) with Memento Black ink and cut with your Detailed Bands Dies. Adhere this diecut with dimensionals. Adhere this entire section, centering it, on the card front. Voila! Your card front is complete 😏

Ornate Thanks stamp set

For the inside… Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4… stamp your sentiment using Pool Party ink and the Ornate Thanks stamp set. Remember this is available now as a premier suite of products! Adhere a scrap of the Flowering Foils DSP 1/4″ from bottom of cs. Adhere using liquid glue to the inside of the card.

For the envelope… I colored a 2 1/4 x 6 piece of the Flowering Foils DSP and adhered it to the envelope flap using liquid glue. Trim to fit. And voila again… your card is ready for mailing!

Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Notecards and the Ornate Garden Suite

Today’s card is made using the ultra cute Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Notecards and decorated using Ornate Garden Specialty DSP and. the Ornate Borders dies. These notecards come in a package of 20 with scalloped envelopes and in colors: Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Light Pink and Terracotta Tile. This card is made using the Old Olive. Here it is…

The card front:

  • Cut a piece of the Ornate Garden SDSP 2 3/4″ x 5″. Adhere using liquid glue.
  • Using the Ornate Borders Dies, cut a piece 1/2″ x 5″ from Gold Foil. Adhere using liquid glue.

The inside:

  • Cut a strip of the Ornate Garden SDSP 1/2″ x 5″ and adhere to the bottom. This allows this beautiful paper paper to show because of the scalloped edge of the notecard.
  • Using the Ornate Layers dies, cut a section from Old Olive cs. Adhere to the inside using liquid glue
  • Using a different die from the Ornate Layers Dies, cut a section from Gold Foil. Rub with your embossing buddy to remove any static. Using Versamark ink, stamp the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set, sprinkle with black embossing powder and heat set. Adhere this to the Old Olive piece.
  • Since this has used most of the card, prepare a Whisper White piece to slip inside. Here’s what I did with mine – using the Ornate Style stamp set and Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I cut this piece 3″ x 4″.

Voila – card is complete, ready to send an appreciative thank you!

I have had such a fun time using this Ornate Garden Suite. If you are not a demonstrator, this suite will become available to order from me Apr 1.  So think about it and let’s connect..

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks, Ornate Borders Dies, So Very Vellum Specialty DSP

Today’s card makes use of the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks and Ornate Borders Dies, and So Very Vellum Specialty DSP and the Eyelet Lace embossing folder. It was inspired by TGIF Challenges #tgifc255. Here it is in all it’s glory – feminine and fresh, bringing a note of thanks to the receiver…

Here are the details for the card front:

  • Soft Seafoam 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • So Very Vellum 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″
  • Whisper White 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 1/2″ x 3″ strip for the sentiment

 

  • Use the border die from the Ornate Borders dies to create this wonderful delicate edge. Adhere this to the left front of the So Very Vellum SDSP. This takes a very thin line of liquid glue. Adhere this, again with liquid glue, just along where the die edge is attached to the vellum. This is important – if glue is anywhere else on the vellum it will show. You don’t want that!
  • Stamp the sentiment from Ornate Thanks with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Angle the one end. Put on dimesionals – I used three – and add to card front. Mine is placed 3/4″ up from the bottom. Add bling with the Noble Peacock Rhinestones. Front is complete!

Inside the card:

  • Whisper White 4″ x 5 1/4″ Stamp the sentiments from the Ornate Thanks stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and Soft Seafoam ink. Use a leftover strip from the embossed piece from the envelope flap and adhere to the bottom. This strip is  1/4″ x 5 1/4″

The envelope:

  • Nary a “neked” envelope to be found – right? Right! Cut a piece of Soft Seafoam 2 1/4″ x 6″, spritz lightly with water and run through the Eyelet Lace embossing folder. Adhere to the envelope flap using liquid glue. Trim. The leftover scrap was cut down and used on the inside of the card 🙂
  • Stamp the sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

I love this card! It is just so sweet. I hope you like it too. Remember that this stamp and die set can be yours beginning Apr 1- May 1. It is part of the Early Release Ornate Garden Suite of products.  While the items will be be available in the Annual 2020-2021 catalogue, they most likely will not be as a suite of products – and therefore will be more expensive.

I would love to have you shop with me. When you purchase product $50- $149 from me, you receive a free item of choice up to $10. A deal right? Use my current HOST CODE XYW2SYNV.

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

 

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.

When you want to learn more about this suite and how to order, please contact me. If we do not connect via my blog, please send a note to my email at tlsbrightspot@gmail.com. Thanks for stopping by today. Remember… make someone happy by sending them a handmade card!
