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! Merriest Moments

Happy Monday! Oh wow – late in the day post today… we went sailing this morning… 🙂 what a wonderful way to begin the week! Here’s a quick photo you might enjoy – then I’ll get on to the real reason for this post: today’s card.

Bullseye Sailboat Mainsail

Beautiful sky, right? It was pretty peaceful out there on the river. OK – today’s card is made with the very new Merriest Moments bundle which can be found in the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog. This comes with three pieces: stamp set, hybrid embossing folder and dies. Hybrid indicates this embossing folder has a coordinating die that can be run through WITH the embossing folder, at the same time! Whoa… It is very cool. Here is the end result – well, my end result for my first play with this set.

Merriest Moments Bundle.1

This card was made with Very Vanilla card stock, gold foil, gold embossing powder and a couple more items. I happen to like monochromatic cards and this one certainly fits that criteria. My first step was to run the embossing folder through without any dies. It created the gorgeous background you see. I then ran another piece through with the embossing folder AND the large outline die – using the embossing plates. I then used the die cutting plates to cut with the detail die to get this gorgeous detail die cut. There is also a rectangle die in this die bundle – and I used that for the sentiment panel. As you can see, I used gold embossing powder for the sentiment – which comes from the Merriest Moments stamp set. I then added three of the Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots in gold to that panel.

My layers went like this…

  • Thick very Vanilla card base
  • Gold Foil sheet adhered with liquid glue or Stampin’ Seal
  • Embossed panel in Very vanilla adhered with Seal+
  • Die cut in Very Vanilla adhered with many dimensionals – both mini and regular
  • Sentiment panel in Very vanilla adhered with dimensionals
Merriest Moments Bundle, inside.2

For the inside, on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock I stamped this sweet leaf spray in Soft Suede ink, then used the Soft Suede marker to make the squigly pattern . This was adhered to the inside of the card: liquid glue or Stampin’ Seal.

Merriest Moments Bundle.3

For ther envelope, I stamped the pine spray and the word JOY with Soft Suede ink and that was it! DONE!!! Oh I DID enjoy playing with this gorgeous bundle… can’t wait to play some more.

SU! Feels Like Frost Fun Fold

Helllloooo – it’s Wacky Wednesday… you know, hump day, middle of the week and all that. Today’s card features a W-Fold using Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP as the headline.  W-Folds are so much fun, just notching things up out of the ordinary.

Feels Like Frost W-Fold
#1

And here’s the ‘innerds’…

Feels Like Frost, inside
#2

I used the Love of Leaves Bundle to highlight the leaf image on the DSP. And here’s the ‘how to’..

  • To the Whisper White card base (4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2), adhere Highland Heather card stock (3 7/8 x 5 1/8), then a layer of the Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP (3 3/4 x 5) – both with liquid glue.
  • Again with Whisper White, stamp the sentiment in Rococo Rose ink. Die cut with Stitched Rectangles Dies. Approximate finished size of die cut is 2 7/8 x 7/8.
  • With Rococo Rose card stock die cut three leaves (see photos above for reference) using the Stitched Leaves Dies. These emboss and die cut at the same time!  Love this look :O)
  • Adhere the longer leaf to the sentiment panel, just the bottom of the leaf. Put dimensionals on the remainder of the leaf and on the sentiment panel. Adhere to the card front and voila – front is complete!
  • Oh… I did add 3 Elegant Faceted Gems to the front and a Linen Thread bow.

For the inside…

Feels Like
Frost W-Fold, inside
#3

Here I used Stitched Leaves Dies, Love of Leaves stamp set and Celebrate Tidings stamp set for the inside sentiments. I ran two panels of Whisper White (4 x 5 1/4) through the Tasteful
Textiles 3D embossing folder and adhered these to both sides of the inside of the card. Details of the W-Fold…

  • Cut a length of Whisper White to create the Z-Fold – 1 3/4 x 11: score at 2 3/4, 5 1/2, 8 1/4. Fold and burnish: valley, mountain, valley. The mountain is in the center of the card.
  • Cut 4 panels of Highland Heather card stock – 2 3/4 x 2
  • Cut 2 panels of 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP in Purple Posey – 2 1/2 x 1 3/4
  • Cut 2 panels of Whisper White for dry embossing – 4 x 51/4

More info for the W-Fold…

from the top look at this W-Fold
#4

  • Adhere the DSP to 2 panels of Highland Heather with liquid glue.
  • Adhere leaf with liquid glue as well
  • On the two white panels, stamp the leaf of choice in Rococo Rose ink, stamping off at least once, then stamp your sentiment in Highland Heather ink.
  • Adhere completed White panels to Highland Heather panels with liquid glue.
  • Adhere the scored Whisper White strip to the inside of the card, centering top to bottom and to the edge of the embossed panel – adhering JUST THE END PANELS.
  • Now adhere the decorated panels thusly: right end panel first, then lay next panel directly on top and close the card adhering it with liquid glue. Complete other two panels in same way – laying one on top of the other and closing the card. This keeps the panels in direct alignment.

For the final touches, I added 3 Elegant Faceted Gems to each of the two end panels and covered the leaves with Wink of Stella. I also covered the small leaf on the sentiment panel with Wink of Stella. It doesn’t show in the photos, but it adds a lot to the completed card.

The envelope..

Feels Like Frost W-Fold
#5

  • Cover the envelope flap with strips from the same Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP and the 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 in Purple Posey.
  • Stamp a leaf from the Love of Leaves stamp set on the envelope front in stamped off Rococo Rose. Cover with Wink of Stella.

YAY – beautiful card and it is complete!

 

SU! Celebtate Sunflowers + Love of Leaves Bundles

Helllooooo… today is what I’m calling Terrific Tuesday. Why? Just because 😁 Here is a card created for sunshine and fall using Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP.

Celebrate Sunflowers + Love of Leaves Bundles
#1`

Is this sunflower gorgeous or what!!! How did I do that? The stamp itself does most of the work, I simply added a variety of inks.

  • Inks used for this stunning sunflower… Mango Melody, Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Cajun Craze. The Cinnamon Cider is mostly around the inside rim, with the Cajun Craze in the very center. The other colors are randomly daubed on with… a sponge dauber.
  • With the Sunflowers Dies, I die cut the overlay from Mango Melody card stock and layered it on the inked flower with dimensionals. This gives it a wonderful 3-D effect.
  • I cut a panel of Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP and adhered it to a slightly larger panel of Early Espresso with liquid glue.
  • With the Whisper White panel, I ran it through the die cutting machine  with a die from the Stitched Leaves Dies that does not cut, but embosses these straight lines. It creates wonderful texture. hmmmm – can’t see it in the above photo…
  • I adhered this white panel to a card base of Mango Melody with liquid glue
  • I die cut three leaves using dies from Stitched Leaves dies – out of Granny Apple Green card stock
  • I had lying on my desk a wheat sheaf cut from the Sunflowers Dies – cut from  Crumb Cake card stock and lightly colored with Cajun Craze ink using a sponge dauber.
  • Assembly… the white panel is already on the Mango Melody card base. Adhere the Plaid Tidings 6×6 / Early Espresso panel with liquid glue. Attach the sunflower with dimensionals, then add the two lower leaves with liquid glue, then the third with dimensionals, slipping them under the flower. Add the wheat sheaf with liquid glue. Add the bow (using Gingham Ribbon in Bumblebee) with a glue dot.
  • The last step is the sentiment panel… I stamped the sentiment from Stitched Leaves stamp set in Early Espresso ink, then punched it out using the Rectangular Postage Punch. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. To give it some glam, I added several 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots and the card front was done.

Texture, glam, dimension – wow! Love this card!

The inside was super easy –

  • I stamped a leaf from the Sunflower Dies using the same process as the sunflower… using a sponge dauber and various inksGarden Green along the stem line, then Cajun Craze and Bumblebee. I used the outline die to cut it out.
  • I adhered a strip of adhesive sheet to the back of Mango Melody card stock then used a leaf die to die cut. Because it had adhesive on the back, I simply removed the backing and covered the already stamped leaf. This is the upper leaf.
  • With a scrap of Granny Apple Green card stock, I die cut another leaf from the Stitched Leaves Dies. This leaf has both embossing and is die cut! The same leaf that is on the front of the card.
  • Adhere both leaves with liquid glue to a panel of Whisper White and adhere this to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

SU! Dove of Hope Bundle

Hello again… I think you are going to love this card… it’s a slimline card made with the Dove of Hope Bundle and Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper. Gosh this is pretty … velvetty-like on vellum.

Dove of Hope Bundle
#1

This definitely non-traditional Christmas colors, but I’m really pleased with the way it turned out. Let’s talk about how we did this…

  • Thick Whisper White card base – slimline fashion
  • Layer of Blushing Bride cs adhered with liquid glue to the card front
  • Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper layer adhered with liquid glue HINT: glue in strategic spots on the backside of the ‘plush’ where the plush comes together.
  • Stamp the dove with Smokey Slate ink onto Whisper Whiter cs.
  • Using the Detailed Dove Dies from this exquisite bundle, die cut the stamped dove.
  • Die cut the ‘olive branch’ out of Mint Macaron cs.
  • Adhere the ribbon – Snowflake Splendor Ribbon – using snail
  • Adhere the dove over the top of the ribbon with dimensionals.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Dove of Hope stamp set, again in Smokey Slate ink, on a Whisper White strip. Punch the ends using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. 
  • Using the Ornate Borders Dies and a 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ scrap of Blushing Bride, cut a decorative border. Add to the back of the sentiment banner with liquid glue and trim for proper length. Adhere banner with dimensionals to the card front.

For the inside…

Dove of Hope Bundle #2

  • Adhere Blushing Bride cs to the card inside
  • To a Whisper White panel, stamp the sentiment from Dove of Hope stamp set in Smokey Slate ink.
  • Over the top of this stamp the larger ‘olive branch’ with stamped off twice Mint Macaron ink.
  • Adhere this panel to the card inside and the card is complete.

Dove of Hope Bundle
#3

Now for the envelope… first we create the envelope 😊 – easy peasy

  • Using a full 8 1/2 x 11 Blushing Bride cs, score on the long side @ 2 1/2″ & 6 1/2″. Score on the short side 1 1/2″ & 10 1/2″. Burnish all score lines.
  • Remove the corners by cutting along the score lines.

On the 1 1/2″ end, use the Detailed Trio Punch, round the corners. Your piece should look like this…

Slimline envelope #4

    • Fold in the 1/2 end, add Tape n Tape or liquid glue and fold over the 2″ length, adhering it.
    • Add liquid glue to the long side and  fold the 2 1/2″ length over it. Your envelope is created!
    • Now decorate… I stamped the sentiment from the Dove of Hope stamp set in Smokey Slate ink, then added the snowflake from the same stamp set near the sentiment and several on the envelope flap, also in Smokey Slate ink.

SU! Tag Buffet w/ Itty Bitty C’mas

Hi everyone! It’s been a couple of days since I posted… things have been a bit crazy here. Another gorgeous day here on the East Coast. Truly, I wish this would last a while. We’ll wait for Mother Nature to decide though :O) Today’s card…

Tag Buffet w/ Itty Bitty C’mas
#1

And here’s how…

  • With an acrylic block, stamp the block on an ink pad, stamp off then stamp on the Whisper White card stock This leaves a fun background on which to stamp.I first used Mango Melody, then Pacific Point then Just Jade inks. It doesn’t make a sold imprint but one that easily will show another stamp over it.
  • With Tuxedo Memento Black ink, stamp the image directly on the center of the ‘inked spot’. This adorable ornament comes from Tag Buffet stamp set.
  • I did some minor coloring on each ornament using Mango Melody Blends, Pretty Peacock Blends and Just Jade Blends.
  • Stamp the word ‘believe’ in the open area of the center ornament. This comes from Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and I used Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  • Using a Take Your Pick Tool, poke a hole in the ornament top and slip a bit of string or  ribbon through to the back and tape. Here I used the Misty Moonlight/ silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack. Add a bow with a glue dot on the center ornament.
  • Adhere this completed Whisper White panel to a piece of Pacific Point card stock.
  • Adhere a panel of Bright 6×6 DSP to the Thick Whisper White card base with liquid glue.
  • Now attach the decorated  panel to the card front with dimensionals.
  • The sentiment banner was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a Thick Whisper White 1/2″ strip. 
  • I trimmed the ends with the Banners Pick a Punch. Adhere with dimensionals to the card front.
  • For a final touch I added these fun and elegant Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems.

The inside was super easy…

Tag Buffet w/ Itty Bitty Greetings
#2

  • Add a strip of the Brights 6×6 DSP in Pacific Point to the bottom of the card.
  • Stamp the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  • Adhere to card inside with liquid glue.

The envelope…

Tag Buffet & Itty Bitty Greetings
#3

  • With another piece of the Brights 6×6 DSP in Pacific Point, adhere with liquid glue to the envelope flap and trim to fit.
  • Stamp the ornament o0n the front of the envelope with Tuxedo Black Memento ink using the Tag Buffet stamp set.
  • Again I colored with Just Jade Blends and Bronze Blend for the top. Remember to slip a piece of scrap card stock in. the envelope before coloring or the blends will bleed through.
  • Products to purchase to make this card may be found below. Card cuts may be found at the bottom of this post.
  • Fun card to create folks and so easy using an acrylic block to create the background.

SU! Poinsettia Petals Bundle

Hi again – DO HOPE you have taken the opportunity to purchase stamp sets during today’s 24 hr STAMP SALE! If not, get on it 😏

 

Today’s card is another using the Poinsettia Petals Bundle – I just love this set… so FUN to create using different colors, either on the bloom (bract) itself or the background. I’ve done both today…

Poinsettia Petals Bundle
#1

Is this gorgeous or what?! Now that I look at it, I guess I could have added some linen thread behind the poinsettia for more texture – that might have been very nice. What I DID add was Shimmery Crystal Effects to the berries. It adds a wonderful sheen in real life – not certain it shows in this photo though. I also add the same Shimmery Crystal Effects to the center of the flower on the envelope. Again, it doesn’t show but I did do it. So, steps, how to..

  • Thick Whisper White for the card base
  • Crumb Cake layer both inside and out
  • ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP – die cut with second largest Stitched Rectangles Dies
  • Whisper White for stamping/ die cutting the poinsettia, leaves & sentiment: Stamp everything using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Color the Poinsettia layers with Crumb Cake Blends; color the leaves with Just Jade Blends, color the berries with Cherry CobblerBlends. Die cut all: 2 small leaves, 1 large leaf, 4 layers of poinsettia bracts and 3 berry clumps. Curl the poinsettia bracts and leaves with a bone folder.
  • Adhere the DSP layer to the Crumb Cake with liquid glue.
  • Adhere the poinsettia together with liquid glue. Adhere flower to the DSP/ Crumb Cake panel with liquid glue. Place leaves and adhere with liquid glue. Lastly add the berry clumps, again with liquid glue.
  • Cover the berries with Shimmery Crystal Effects and set aside to dry.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and fussy cut. Place on Mini dimensionals and adhear to the card.
  • If the Crumb Cake/ DSP panel with the poinsettia/ berries is now dry, put dimensionals on the back and adhere to the card base.
  • Add a single Beaded Pearl to the poinsettia center then add Pearl Basic Jewels for the final touch completing the card front.

The inside…

Poinsettia Petals, inside

  • Stamp the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Tuxedo 
    Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White
  • With a leaf stamp from Poinsettia Petals stamp set, stamp off twice with Just Jade ink and stamp in center of the sentiment.
  • Adhere the Whisper White panel to the Crumb Cake panel with liquid glue then add this to the inside of the card.

Envelope…

Poinsettia Petals Bundle
#3

  • Cover the envelope flap with a strip of the ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP (I used the same pattern). Add a strip of Crumb Cake cs to complete the flap. Trim.
  • On the front, stamp the poinsettia from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  • Color with Blends: Crumb Cake for the bracts, Cherry Cobbler for the center. TIP: be sure to slip a piece of scrap card stock inside the envelope when coloring the poinsettia – otherwise it will bleed through to the back of the envelope – and that’s a no-no.
  • Cot the center of the flower with the Shimmery Crystal Effects and let dry.

SU! Birthday Triple Cube Pop Up Fun Fold

Hellooooo 😁 It’s F-A-L-L, officially… and today’s card is sort of fall and definitely a birthday card. It was, I confess, my first attempt at making this fun fold, and I’m generally pretty pleased with it. We learn from mistakes, hopefully, and I should make another real soon as to remember what I would do differently… Here ’tis…

Triple Box Fun Fold
#1

The gorgeous Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP is the highlight of this card – and the background to it is the Brushed Metallic card stock in copper and the card base is Cinnamon Cider. I used the Ornate Frames Dies to frame the sentiment and Fancy Phrases stamp set for the sentiment. I added the Gilded Gems on the sentiment label.

Ornate Frames Dies, Gilded Gems
#2

The Butterfly Gala Bundle (stamp set/ butterfly punch) were used for the butterflies (3 of them) and several Blends for coloring: Lt Purple Posy, Lt Bermuda Bay and Lt Mango Melody. To add as bit of glam on the butterflies, I added Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels. I also used gold metallic trim for the butterfly antennae – this is from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.

For the “inside” decorations I used the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty DSP and the Boho Indigo Dies for the vases.

On another of the ‘inside panels” I created a banner/ tag using the Fancy Phrases Bundle (stamp set and Fancy Tag Topper Punch).

Fancy Tag Topper Punch
#5

The tag was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, then the flowers colored with Calypso Coral and Just Jade Blends. Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels were centered on the two flowers. Basketweave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack – copper metallic for the trim + Forever Greenery Ribbon Combo Pack using the Vanilla. I did trim the width to allow it to slip inside the prepared sleeve.

Here are photos in general preparation of this FUN FOLD… card cuts will be. listed at the end of this post.

This is great picture of the tabs to hold the sentiment… each is about 1/2″ width x 2″ in length then folded in half. Adhere tear n tape to each side. Adhere the folded side to the fold of the lower ‘boxes’, centering. Remove tear n tape and carefully apply sentiment tag.

SU! Winter Woods

Howdy! It’s Sunday… do you have routines for a Sunday? We certainly do… and they have changed some ever the last several months due to the pandemic. I look back and remember the routines of my family on a Sunday – it was something that could be counted on. I wonder in our routines of a Sunday if it’s something that will be handed down. I just finished reading a book by Lisa Wingate – The Book of Lost Friends. It’s about generational history, beautifully written. I highly recommend it.

Today’s card looks like tradition to me – a stately tree, decorated for the holidays.

Winter Woods
#1

Here’s what’s needed for this project….

  • Thick Whisper White card stock and regular Whisper White cs
  • Winter Woods stamp set
  • Cherish the Season stamp set (inside sentiment)
  • Ornate Frames Dies (banner on front)
  • Just Jade card stock/ ink
  • Cherry Cobbler ink
  • Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder
  • Star Designer Elements
  • Wonderful Gems

On a Whisper White panel, stamp this beautiful tree from Winter Woods stamp set in Just Jade ink. My inking pad is very inky so it was necessary for me to stamp off once. With another Whisper White scrap – say 1 1/4 x 3, stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink. I love this combined font – so crisp! Using a die from Ornate Frames Dies, die cut, add dimensionals and adhere under the tree. Adhere this tree panel to Just Jade cs. It too should have dimensionals before adhering to the Thick Whisper White card base. I added the Star Element at the tree top, then the Wonderful Gems all over the tree and on the sentiment panel as well.

For the inside…

#2

I love how this turned out, and there’s a story here. I had cut my Whisper White panel and must have gotten distracted, cuz I stamped the trees as though it was a landscape profile, not portrait!  (Yes, I needed to stamp off once more.) I went ahead and stamped the sentiment from Cherish the Season stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink. It was then I realized the error. 😳 Instead of going into a panic, I simply cut the inked paper down to size, adhered it with liquid glue to the Just Jade panel and then into the card base. I adhered another panel below it for writing a message. Project saved!!!

For the envelope…

Winter Woods
#3

I used a strip of Just Jade cs and ran it through the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder, adhered it with liquid glue and cut it to fit. For the from I stamped this sweet pine needle from the Winter Woods stamp set along the side and bottom in stamped off once Just Jade ink, And the card is complete – yay…

Thanks for stopping by.

May you have a beautiful day.
