Stampin’ Up! Simply Elegant and Wonderful Snowflakes

Hi everyone… a bit late today… it’s Monday and a sailing day and silly me didn’t get this written & scheduled last night… but here I am. Today’s card is made with the Simply Elegant DSP, Gold Shimmer Vellum (from the Jul-Dec Mini 2021 Catalog and Encircled in Beauty Dies plus one or two other items. I hadn’t broken open the Encircled in Beauty Dies and am so disappointed I haven’t used them more – they are, well, beautiful :O]

Simply Elegant DSP w/ Wonderful Snowflakes.1

This is such an easy layout to ‘change up’. Besides the Simply Elegant DSP which is a major focus, there is also the Wonderful Snowflake and the background for it is a die cut from Gold Shimmer Vellum using one of the Encircled in Beauty Dies. Another addition is 7/8″ wide Textured Ribbon in Smoky Slate – lots of grays & golds going on here. The special touch is the Silver Embossing Powder for the sentiment. To me, that really brings it all together. The sentiment comes from Snowflake Wishes stamp set. Card cuts will be listed at the bottom of this post.

Simply Elegant DSP &
Wonderful Snowflakes.2

For the inside, more snowflakes from Snowflake Wishes stamp set stamped n a Basic White panel with VersaMark ink, covered with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set. The snowflakes add a finishing touch to the inside – and I didn’t feel another sentiment was necessary, but it would be easy enough to do. Adhere panel to the inside of the card and that’s it!

Simply Elegant DSP & Wonderful Snowflakes.3

The flap got more of the same Simply Elegant DSP trimmed to fit. The front of the envelope got more of the snowflakes from Snowflake Wishes stamp set… stamped w/ VersaMark, covered with Silver Embossing Powder & heat set. And it’s ready for Christmas mailing 😁 This puts me at 31 Christmas cards… more to make with a goal of 100! I’m not good at mass producing, meaning… I don’t like to do it. I certainly can and may have to resort to it, but not yet.

Nothing beats a handmade card.

Stampin’ Up! Bridge Fold Card in Whimsy

Good Monday morning to you… a full week is ahead of us. Got anything wonderful planned? I can tell you we are going sailing this morning, IF (and that’s big if) there is enough wind. And then I need to make a bunch of cards for our daughter – who requested sympathy and thinking of you type cards. But for now, let’s focus on this fun fold. It’s quite easy. A stand-up card by itself.

Bridge Fold Card in Whimsy.1

Oh my, this is a dark photo… later is a better one. I used Whimsical Trees with coordinating Christmas Trees Dies and the Whimsy & Wonder SDSP & the Seasonal Labels Dies for the sentiment. I did use Silver Foil for the tree and stars. Let’s get a better picture…

Bridge Fold Card in Whimsy.2

This is better – and it’s lying on it’s back. Let’s begin with the tree, shall we? I die cut the tree from Silver Foil and kept all the inner pieces. I then die cut the solid tree from Basic White card stock + an extension of the bottom of the tree about 1/2″. I happen to really like both trees and no, I don’t think they are supposed to go together. But I happen to like the way they layer. All the little pieces that are from the silver foil tree, I attached with dots of liquid glue, intentionally overlaying them so they appear like another layer of snow or tree. I attached the foil tree to the Basic White tree, again with dots of liquid glue, then added the tree extension behind. I die cut this tree from the foil panel that is layered with the packages ~ see photo :O) I also die cut several stars (the die cuts 5 at once) ~ all of the die cuts use the Christmas Trees Dies.

Bridge Fold Card in Whimsy.3

The next important step is preparing the papers… you don’t have to do the double layers of papers. I just happen to like the way it looks. Finished card size fits nicely in an A2 envelope… 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 when it folds flat.

TIP: When cutting the SDSP, it is best to make certain the “picture” of the papers flow from left to right AND that if there is a definitive up & down, that you keep that going in the proper direction. It doesn’t show so much with this Designer Paper, but with some it is very obvious. And when the card is flat, the direction of the papers definitely are apparent.

  • Card base is 4 1/4 x 8 scored at 1 1/4x 2 1/2, 5 1/2 & 6 3/4; 1 1/4 x 5 1/2 (bridge panel). I used Misty Moonlight
  • Silver Foil layers: 1 1/8 x 4 1/8 (4); 2 7/8 x 4 1/8 (center panel); 1 1/8 x 5 3/8 (bridge panel); 2 x 4 for tree / stars
  • Whimsy & Wonder SDSP: 1 x 4 (4); 2 3/4 x 4 (center panel is coordinating); 1 x 5 1/4 (bridge panel)

Burnish all score lines and fold mountain, valley, valley, mountain. In other words, both the 1 1/4 & 6 3/4 folds should be mountain folds. Refer to the photo.

Attach all layers together as shown. I used Stampin’ Seal for this step, but liquid glue does give more adjustment leeway. Make sure all SDSP is facing the proper direction! For the bridge panel… once the layers are together, adhere the bridge to the far right panel of the card base. It is easiest to do this if the right panel is folded and the rest of the card flat. Now fold the card the opposite direction, so the far left of the card is folded and the right side of the card is flat – adhere the bridge to the left front panel. YAY!

Now decorate…

  • Adhere the tree with liquid glue to the bridge & the tree top to the right front fold.
  • Add 2021-2023 In Color Jewels to the tree in Polished Pink
  • Add the foil die cut stars with dots of liquid glue
  • Add 2021-2023 In Color Jewels to the inside panel (packages) in Polished Pink
  • Stamp the sentiment in Polished Pink ink using the Whimsical Trees stamp set. Die cut with the Season Labels Dies. Attach with dimensionals. Add 2021-2023 In Color Jewels in Fresh Freesia.
Bridge Fold Card, backside.4

  • Stamp sentiment in Polished Pink ink on a Basic White panel 2 7/8 x 4 1/8 with Whimsical Trees stamp set.
  • Attach to backside of card and the card is done!
Bridge Fold Card in Whimsy.5

For the envelope… cover the flap in Whimsy & Wonder SDSP, trim to fit. Stamp the cute ornaments from Whimsical Trees stamp set in Moonlight Madness. Color with Markers: Soft Succulent, Polished Pink & Blushing Bride.

Love this fun fold!!! I has been a while since I have done this and I had a good time. So easy and looks great as a stand alone card.

Stampin’ Up! Black & White + One

Hello fellow stampers! It’s Friday, a bit rainy here today. Not sure how long it will last. I have one more card to share from our Team Meeting on Sunday, but I just had to pop in with this very cute box. My paper of choice for this is the Beautifully Penned 12 x 12 DSP that is FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 purchase. More on that later in the post. I’ve chosen Black & White cuz there’s a challenge for Black & White plus one other color…. and I chose red.

Black & White + One.1

Other products…

  • Poinsettia Dies (coordinates w/ Poinsettia Petals stamp set)
  • Seasonal Labels Dies (coordinates w/ Christmas Season stamp set)
  • Vellum
  • Basic White card stock
  • Real Red card stock
  • Real Red Double Stitched Satin Ribbon
  • Rhinestone Basic Jewels
  • Wink of Stella

The ‘how’ to decorate this box…

  • die cut the vellum using the smallest label die in the Seasonal Labels Dies
  • die cut three poinsettia petals using the Poinsettia Dies & Basic White card stock, cover with Wink of Stella, adhere together with glue dots and mini dimensionals. I used the mini dimensional only for adding the top petal.
  • die cut the berry spray using another of the Poinsettia Dies and Real Red card stock., cut apart as desired
  • add the vellum to the box with Stampin’ Seal+ just across the middle of the Vellum. This will be very secure and the adhesive will be covered by the decoration.
  • adhere the berries with more Stampin’ Seal+
  • add the poinsettia with two glue dots
  • Add three Rhinestone Basic Jewels in the three varied sizes for a bit of sparkle & glam
  • tie the Real Red Ribbon Double-Stitched Ribbon around the end of the box, making a bow – done!

Tomorrow I’ll give complete directions for the box & a card to go with it. 😏

Stampin’ Up! and Gift Packaging

Surprise! It’s Sunday! And what I have for you today is… not a card, it’s gift packaging in a very fun way. This came from none other than Sam Hammond Donald or Pootles, who does quite a bit of boxes & such. This is not a box. And I did three different sizes cuz they are so cute and well, I couldn’t quit :O)

Aren’t these just CUTE? I haven’t decorated but one of them, cuz I can’t decide… And can you tell there are three different sizes here? The last photo is the smallest; the medium size are the first two photos; and the largest is the polka dot. The color is Highland Heather, not very Christmasy, but could be. The two papers (largest & medium) are from the Penguin Playmates 12 x 12 DSP – a FREE item during Sale-a-bration. The smallest is from the 2021-2023 In Color 6×6 DSP. The ribbon is Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon. To me, they look as though they should be decorated as baby packaging – maybe it’s the color that leads me in that direction. So… friends… Shall I decorate as though they are for Christmas or a for a baby gift? Or maybe a Christmas baby gift? Hmmm – thinking through this and I kinda like that idea, Christmas baby gift. Let me show you the one I did decorate, albeit not overly so.

Gift Packaging

I fussy cut images from the Penguin Playmates DSP, added them to the stitched rectangle with mini dimensionals , bent the rectangle a bit to give it a curve and mounted it with dimensionals to the package. Oh, and yes, I did stamp a sentiment as well – the images called for it 🙂

Let me tell you how these are made and I know you will want to try this yourself. The paper sizes vary, but all must be square AND divisible by 3.

Sizes:

  • 12 x 12 scored @ 4 & 8; turn and do the same again
  • 9 x 9 scored at 3 & 6; turn and do the same again
  • 6 x 6 scored at 2 & 4; turn and do the same again

The how to:

  • After scoring, burnish all score lines. Mark the center of each edge and score from the center mark to the score line in an upside down V. Burnish those score lines as well. Punch holes in each corner about 1/2″ in from point. Thread ribbon through, first through opposite points, then each side point. Gently pull together and tie a bow. See photo…
HGift Packaging

Super easy and super cute! Here’s what it looks like from the top when it’s bow is tied.

Gift Packaging

I think I talked myself into decorating these as baby gifts for Christmas – and I have the perfect someone in mind!

Stampin’Up! Christmas Tree Dies with Peaceful Prints DSP

Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend – woohoo, right? How IS everyone… with this Covid variant flare-up, it’s got be nerve-wracking. Thinking about all of you out there – take care of one another.

I played with another new set that’s in the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini catalogthe Christmas Tree Dies, part of the Whimsical Trees Bundle (page 25). And when I saw ‘played’ – just barely… this set is a gem and really, I’ve hardly touched it.

C’mas Tree Dies w/ Peaceful Prints.1

That tree is just a perfect match for this paper – Peaceful Prints 12 x 12 DSP – which is a FREE item in the Sale-a-bration catalog (with a purchase of $50). The two prints that I used on this card come from this pack of papers. So let’s talk about how I did this…

  • I did all the card cuts… Peaceful Prints DSP layered with Sahara Sand card stock.
  • I ran the Real Red card stock through the Bark 3D embossing folder – you know, tree, bark, they go together, right?
  • I cut the tree from Garden Green card stock using the C’mas Tree Dies
  • I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink on a Basic White panel using the Evergreen Elegance stamp set, then die cut using the Ornate Layers Dies

Once all the layers were die cut and stamped, I put it together:

  • the plaid panel was adhered directly to the Thick Basic White card base with Stampin’ Seal.
  • the Real Red embossed panel was added with dimensionals
  • the deer panel was adhered directly to the Real Red piece with Stampin’ Seal
  • the tree was added with dimensionals
  • the sentiment panel got double dimensionals (one on top of the other) under the two ends
  • as a final touch I added several Gilded Gems to the tree – and the card front was done…

For the inside…

  • stamp the sentiment in Sahara Sand ink using the Evergreen Elegance stamp set on a Basic White panel
  • stamp the tree, off-set, in Garden Green ink(stamping off once) using the Evergreen Elegance stamp set
  • layer this panel to a Sahara Sand card stock, then add it to the inside of the card – voila!

For the envelope…

C’mas Tree Dies w/ Peaceful Prints.3

On a Basic White envelope, stamp the trees with the Evergreen Elegance stamp set with Garden Green ink – stamping off once first, then not re-inking.

C’mas Tree Dies w/ Peaceful Prints.4

Cover the envelope with Peaceful Prints DSP, trim to fit and done, done, done.

I love the layers and how so many stamp and die sets coordinate. And that’s Stampin’ Up! for you – the coordination is what makes it so easy to mix & match. And no company does it better.

Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Birthday

It’s Tuesday – do you have something F-U-N planned? It’s our son-in-laws birthday today and I’ve made a special card for him… He tends toward the modern and straight lines, so I decided to follow that. We also have a bag that one of his presents is in and that determined the colors for the card, cuz I wanted them to coordinate. Silly? Maybe, but there it is. The cloth bag has tones of brown & a beautiful blue – I decided on Bermuda Bay and it almost matches perfectly! For the brown I used Soft Suede and it’s just ok… I think it looks good on the card.

Stitched Triangles Birthday.1

I’ve used a RETIRED product – totally against the ‘rules’ but again, I wanted to use something that I thought our son-in-law would like. The retired item is Mercury Glass Designer Acetate in silver. A current item is the Hydrangea Hill Mercury Designer Acetate and I SHOULD HAVE used that, turned to the reverse side… but honestly I didn’t think of it. 😦 In my product list, Hydrangea Hill Mercury Designer Acetate will show, cuz it will totally work!

Here’s what I did…

  • Die cut triangles from Pattern Party DSP – 2
  • Die cut triangles from Hydrangea Hill Mercury Designer Acetate on the silver side – 2
  • Adhered them together offset – as shown in photo. using Stampin’ Seal (HINT/ TIP: Stampin’ Seal does not show through the acetate!)
  • Adhered to the card base – Thick Basic White as shown
  • Stamped sentiments from Biggest Wish stamp set: happy in Bermuda Bay ink and BIRTHDAY in Sahara Sand ink. I used the Stamparatus for this as it makes it really easy.
  • Added three Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins
Stitched Triangles n Birthday, inside.2

For the inside I did some creative die cutting with additional dies from the Stitched Triangles Dies.

  • On the left I die cut directly into the Basic White panel using the Stitched Triangles Dies
  • I die cut two fun ‘banners’ from Soft Suede card stock then Bermudas Bay card stock and adhered them together with liquid glue, off-set.
  • Adhere the Basic White panel to a Bermuda Bay panel, slightly larger, with Stampin’ Seal, then into the inside of the card, again with Stampin’ Seal – – – and the card was D-O-N-E.
Stitched Triangles Birthday.3

For the envelope…

  • Die cut a strip with one of the Stitched Triangles Dies from Bermuda Bay card stock
  • Adhere with dots of liquid glue to Soft Suede card stock the same length but slightly wider
  • Adhere to envelope with Stampin’ Seal – and both card & envelope are d-o-n-e. YAY… Gosh, I just looked at the photo and it’s hard to tell the Bermuda Bay from the Soft Suede <:(

I THINK our son-in-law will like this card – and his gifties. Such fun to create for others with what they like in mind.

Stampin’ Up! Sneak Peek of Delicate Dahlias to order

One of the benefits of being a demonstrator is for Stampin’ Up! is preordering from new catalogs. What that means is that when the catalog goes live to demonstrators, we have the opportunity to order stamps, dies suites, bundles, ribbons, embellishments – all that – early – so we can ‘play’ with new product. Creativity at our fingertips… This new catalog – the Jul- Dec 2021 Mini Catalog goers live to customers Aug 3. With orders of $50 or $100, there is also a Sale-a-bration Catalog from which to order FREE product. Today’s Delicate Dahlia is from that catalog. And I;ve used it to make a sympathy card – well, two cards. They use the same layout but are different colors.

Card 1 uses Misty Moonlight elements; Card 2 uses Polished Pink.

Card 1 uses the 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP in Misty Moonlight; Card 2 uses 2021-2023 In Color 6×6 DSP.

Card 1 uses Flowers for Every Season Ribbon in Misty Moonlight & Silver; Card 2 uses Open Weave Ribbon in Polished Pink.

Card 1 uses a new 3D embossing folder called Timeworn Type 3D EF; Card 2 does not use an embossing folder.

Card 1 makes use of Stitched So Sweetly Dies for the sentiment; Card 2 sentiment is stamped directly on the card front.

Card 1 has a rectangular centerpiece; Card 2 has a square centerpiece.

Card 1 uses Metallic Pearls; Card 2 uses Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Both use the stamp set from the Sale-a-bration Catalog that is FREE with a $100 order: Delicate Dahlias. This is a 2-step stamp and a Distinctive stamp, meaning step 2 gives light and dark ‘shading’. It’s gorgeous, right?

Here is the inside of each card. Both use sentiments from Inspiring Thoughts stamp set. Card 2 uses a background stamp from the June Paper Pumpkin kit – but… you could use a stamp from Artistically Inked or Watercolor Shapes stamp set – and stamp off at least once.

Here you see the completed cards with the envelope. I love both and am not certain I can say one is better than the other. The one on the left could be for a man, while card 2, Polished Pink is definitely for a woman.

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 NEW HOST CODE for July – 4TKMUNQH . 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! More Butterflies

In my last post here I talked about a Butterfly Card Box and that it was a gift for a friend. Today’s post is the rest of the cards to go in the gift box.

These butterfly ‘tops’ are all ones that were on my desk after playing last week and since the box is a butterfly one, I decided to use them. The blue card butterfly top is die cut from Mint Macaron with the underpart cut from Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP. The green card butterfly top is die cut from Just Jade with the underside being the same paper from Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP. Both of these were adhered to a panel of Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP (part of the freebies during Sale-a-bration) with a Vellum Doily atop it. The doily was adhered with Seal + and the butterfly with liquid glue. With the blue card I took a panel of Basic White card stock and ran it through the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder. The blue square panel was adhered with Foam Adhesive cut smaller so it doesn’t show. The thank you sentiment is one die cut using the Many Messages bundle, which cuts several sentiments at once. I adhered it to a slightly larger piece of the same Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP, put a dimensional under the bottom half and a dab of liquid glue under the half and added it to the card. to finalize the front of the blue card I added 3 Iridescent Pearls.

Back to the green card, I adhered the green square to a Basic White square cut a bit larger and since it was backed with something stronger, I added dimensionals to it. This square was added to a Basic White panel run through the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder that also had white twine double wrapped around it. The twine is from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack and is quite fine. The layers then were: card base, Basic White panel run through the embossing folder, then the layers of the green square panel with the butterfly. To complete this card front I again added three Iridescent Pearls.

With two card fronts done, I then created the third card front. This begins with a card base of So Saffron with a layer of Basic White card stock run through the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and adhered with liquid glue. I then die cut a panel with the Stitched Rectangle Dies from the Flower & Field DSP (another FREE item during Sale-a-bration). I had measured this fairly carefully so I would have a border piece left over. The solid rectangle got Foam Adhesive adhered to the back and centered on the card front. The border was turned over to the other side and adhered with liquid glue. I like how it provides a nice contrast and brings in the yellow of the butterfly. The butterfly is again two layers: the solid piece is die cut from Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP that has variations of color shown on the envelope flap; the top is Basic Black with areas covered in Wink of Stella (which does not show in this photo!). The two butterfly pieces were adhered together with liquid glue and added to the rectangular panel with liquid glue. The sentiment panel is again from the Many Messages bundle, stamped originally in Memento Black ink, and adhere with liquid glue to a strip of the Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP and ends punched with the Banners Pick a punch. I put dimesnionals at the edges of the rectangular panels, a bit of liquid glue to the sentiment banner and adhered it to the card front. Three Iredescent Pearls were added to complete this third card front.

Now for the insides and the envelopes…

For the two card insides on the left: stamp the butterfly in Basic Gray stamped off once onto basic White panel; stamp the filler for the butterfly in stamped-off Mint Macaron ink. This image comes from the A Touch of Ink stamp set – another FREE item during Sale-a-bration! For the third card, I used the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set (new and available to customers Mar 3) in Basic Gray ink. I had covered this one butterfly with ink using a sponge dauber and my Stamparatus. It worked perfectly. I then used my Blending Brushes to cover the Basic White panel with So Saffron ink. This was adhered to the inside of the So Saffron card and all three cards were complete. :O)

OK, I didn’t quite get these in the right order, but you can see them well at least. The blue… Oh So Ombrfe 6×6 DSP and stamped with the A Touch of Ink stamp set in several places using Basic Gray ink; the green… Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP and stamped with A Touch of Ink stamp set and Basic Gray ink; and the final envelope flap is covered in Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP – and all three are done! Voila! I love this set of cards, all using butterflies yet each unique and different. I hope my friend will like them too.
