Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World Take 2

Happy 4th folks! Lots to be thankful for in this country of ours. Yes, there is room for improvement, but I’m proud of the freedoms we have and wish others could have more of it. Revel in our county’s glory, just be safe about it! OK?

Today’s card is another sharing of the Wonderful World Bundle – FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $100 purchase from any SU! catalog.

Wonderful World Take 2.1

The Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch is perfect for these images on the Wonderful World 12 x 12 DSP, so I did just that & punched out three floral images. I mounted them on Pear Pizzazz card stock to bring out that soft green on the stems & leaves. Next I pulled out some Garden Green card stock… notice how the stems & leaves have a darker edging? I added 3/4″ Frayed ribbon in white then the framed floral images on dimensionals. For the card base… Thick Basic White in a standard A2 size. I covered it with a Basic White panel run through the Stitched Greenery die. I love this die and use it fairly often for background texture. Before attaching the Garden Green panel, I stamped the sentiment from Soft Seedlings stamp set in Garden Green ink – love this font! The final touch for the card front was attaching the Adhesive-Backed Sequins & Gems in Fresh Freesia. They bring out the iris for me :O)

Wonderful World take 2, inside

On a Basic White panel, I stamped the iris in Rich Razzleberry ink – it follows the iris from the front of the card! This piece was adhered to a Pear Pizzazz base then to the inside of the card.

Wonderful World take 2.3

For the envelope, more iris from the Wonderful World stamp set in Rich Razzleberry – both on the front and the flap. The distinctive stamps in this set are really quite wonderful – love, love. And you can get this bundle (DSP + stamp set) when you purchase $100 of SU! product – you kn ow, from me :O) And… I’ve begun this rewards program and doubled the rewards through July 7th. So don’t wait, don’t hesitate – shop now :O)

Stampin’ Up! Pop-Up Book Fold Card

Hello folks – it’s Thursday… and I have a fun fold card today. It’s called… Pop-Up Book Fold and it’s not as hard as you might think. As a matter of fact, I’m teaching this in my card class today. The scoring & cutting is a bit tricky for the inside and I strongly suggest looking at a video on YouTube and not just following my instructions. :O) I love this card, but I DO have to, ya know, pay attention when creating! Here’s the card…

Pop-Up Book Fold Card.1

I’ve used several products on this card… stamp sets: probably three, maybe four; Ladybug Punch (so fun!) , ribbon and embellishments, Stampin’ Blends. Layering, layering. How can we NOT do it?!

The DSP is Perfectly Penciled which I colored with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I could have colored the leaves but chose not to. This DSP already has some shading and I used that area for the Dark Daffodil Delight. I like how each flower is different – as they are in real life! Once colored this was layered on Basic Black. The Black & White Gingham ribbon was round around and secured in back with Stampin’ Seal. I then slipped another length under that and tied a bow, then secured it with a glue dot. I put dimensionals on the back and adhered it to the Daffodil Delight card base. I used the Charming Sentiments Bundle to create the sentiment, stamped in Memento ink and die cut with the Sentiment Silhouette Dies. I put dimensionals on the back and adhered it to a Basic Black piece die cut with the Stylish Shapes Dies, then adhered it with liquid glue to the card front. Then came the sweet bee – punched with the Ladybug Punch. I simply cut thin strips of Daffodil Delight scraps and added them to the Basic Black body. The wings were punched from Vellum and added with a thin strip of dimensional. I added the completed bee to the card front with dimensionals. The final touch was a single Iridescent Rhinestone Jewel on the flower just above the bee.

Pop-Up Book Fold Card.2

For the Pop-Up insert… cut the panel 8 x 5 and score at 4 on the long side. With the short side up on the paper trimmer, measure down 1″ and cut from 1″ to the 7″ mark. Turn the paper 180 degrees and do the same on the opposite side. These are the only two cuts necessary to create the pop-up book. The rest is all scoring. It might be helpful to mark with pencil all the scoring lines so you don’t goof. :O)

  • With long side at the top and the right side of the paper on the 1″ mark beyond the trimmer, score from 1″ to 4″. Move the paper to the 1 1/2″ and score again from 1″ to 4″. Turn the paper 180 degrees and do the same on the opposite side.
  • With long side at the top of the trimmer and left side of paper at the 2 1/2″ mark, score 1″ to cutting line, both top & bottom. Again turn the paper 180 degrees and do the same on the other side.
  • Burnish all score lines and fold as shown in photo below. Also, refer to photo 2.

You will notice in photo 2 that I stamped all around the score lines and I did it after all lines were done. I think I would suggest stamping the entire sheet before scoring. I think it would look pretty neat that way. The leaf stamp comes from the Abigail Rose stamp set. It seemed to look similar to me to the DSP used on the card front. I stamped in Memento Black ink.

Decorate the ‘book’… (It’s helpful to decorate the ‘book’ prior to adding the insert to the card base.) Cut two panels of Daffodil Delight 2 1/4 x 2 3/4 and adhere. Cut two panels of Basic White 2 x 2 1/2. Stamp the sentiment fromHello Ladybug stamp set in Memento ink on one panel. Stamp with the flower from Hello Ladybug stamp set in Daffodil Delight surrounding the sentiment. Then use the same stamp to cover the other panel. Create another bee using the Ladybug Punch and adhere with liquid glue to the stamped all over panel. Add this to the left ‘book’ side. Adhere the sentiment panel to the right ‘book’ side. Decorate both with Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels on various flower centers. Here’s that photo again.

Pop-Up Book Card.2

The next sorta tricky part is adhering the insert to the card base. And I should have taken a photo of this step but was too excited and didn’t do it :o(

  • With the card base flat and the insert flat as well, adhere the right side only – outer edge and to the 2 1/2″ score line top & bottom. Center it.
  • Close the card with all scoring as it should lie. Adhere the left side: outside edge and top & bottom just to the 2 12″ score lines.
  • When completed it should look like the photo below.
Pop-Up Book Fold Card.3

Such a fun fold – and not all that difficult… just need to pay attention to the score lines! I hope you try this – and share it with me when you do.

Stampin’ Up! Eden Wreath C’mas

Hello TGIF! We got our boat put away this week, before the winds and rain. When I say put away – that means we got it to our winter storage marina, they took it out, cleaned the bottom, removed the mast & put it on it’s trailer. But it isn’t parked yet in it’s permanent spot so we can’t cover it. 😦 With all the rain, it is now full of water and we’ll have to drain it before covering. Draining isn’t that difficult or time consuming, we just don’t know when it will get moved so it’s a ‘things happen in stages’ kind of thing – better known as a ‘waiting game’.

Let me tell you about getting it to the wintering marina because, you are going to belly laugh. This is a little sailboat – 16′, no motor. This time of year winds are either pretty fierce or non-existent and sailing in a little boat during fierce winds is not a good idea. We have to choose – and we chose a day when the winds were to be about 6 -8 mph, which is perfect. But guess what – there was next to no wind and we still had to move the boat, cause weather was setting in and we had to have it out of its slip. We paddled… and paddled… and paddled some more. Let me just say, we’ve had this boat since 1998 and there is always a new experience awaiting us. Thanks for listening/ reading, whatever. Life is all about new experiences and how we handle them, right?

The card for today is more of the Eden’s Garden products. It’s just beautiful DSP and the dies are fun. Remember it will be available to you Nov 2 so gear up.

Eden’s Wreath C’mas.1

The card base is Evening Evergreen; the next is Gold Foil and the gorgeous DSP is Ever Eden DSP that will be available only while supplies last – just sayin’ don’t wait if you want it. (My HOST CODE is listed later in this post!) The wreath is made with one of the dies in the Eden Dies I cut apart once it was die cut. (Let’s be clear… die cut the piece from Basic White card stock, then cut the paper apart – NOT THE DIE!) I played around with the cut pieces to make this the way I wanted it and used a circle template to try & keep it round. Once I had it the way I wanted, I put cut dimensionals on the back and adhered each section, sometimes layering. I added the bow using the Open Weave Ribbon in Soft Succulent, then added a length of Simply Elegant Trim in gold and attached it with a glue dot. The final step to the wreath was to add some Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels

The final step was a sentiment and I chose to use Evergreen Elegance stamp set for that. I love the font! I stamped it in VersaMark ink on a Basic White strip, sprinkled Gold Embossing Powder over it and heat set. Then I fussy cut it… the angles were just right to enhance the look of the wreath :O) I put dimensionals on the back and put it in place, then added three more Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a bit more elegance.

Eden’s Wreath C’mas.2

I stamped the sentiment – again from the Evergreen Elegance stamp set, in Evening Evergreen ink. There were some pieces of wreath remaining from the original die cut and I wanted use them, so adhered them with liquid glue. I think they add a nice touch. This was adhered to the inside of the card and the card itself was done.

Eden’s Wreath C’mas.3

For the envelope, I stamped one of the ‘fronds’ from Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent ink onto the front of the envelope, the top & bottom in full strength, the middle in second generation. I covered the flap in another piece of the Ever Eden SDSP, trimmed it to fit & voila – the set was complete. :O) I really, really like this card: maybe it’s the colors, or the glam from the rhinestones, or the glitter of the sentiment, or the ribbon, or the SDSP ~ whatever it is, I like it.

If you would like to make this card, remember you can do one of two things: become a demonstrator & order now (you may do that here to do that with me) or order Nov 2 as a customer so you don’t miss out (Click here for that).

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…

#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…

#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.

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.
