SU! Boho Indigo #2 on Notecard

Hi Everyone! It is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l here in NJ, USA… Cool temps, low humidity – yes – I could accept this for a while 😁… Just perfect!

My card for today is another Boho Indigo on a Notecard. I had stamped three vases in Memento Black ink some time ago and they have been sitting on my workspace waiting patiently to be used. I swear a little gremlin kept pushing them forward saying “use me, use me”. Must be my imagination 🙂

Card…

Boho Indigo 2

What we have is three colors (a couple of shades of green but that’s ok): a Petal Pink from the Peony Garden DSP, solid Petal Pink cs , Whisper White cs (Postage Stamp Punch, sentiment banners and of course the Notecard, and Pear Pizzazz (+ Old Olive 1/4″ Ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack).

Stamp the vase from the Boho Indigo stamp set in Memento Black ink. Add dimesnionals to it and adhere to a Whisper White piece that has been punched using the Postage Stamp Punch. (Love this punch – such a sweet border it creates…) Die cut the leaves (twice) from Pear Pizzazz cs using the Boho Indigo coordinating dies. Trim the extended stems and adhere with liquid glue to the Whisper White Postage Stamp Punch. Adhere this vase ‘decor’ to a panel of the Petal Pink from the Peony Garden DSP with liquid glue, then to a solid piece of Petal Pink cs. Add a 1/4 length of Pear Pizzazz cs to the Notecard front, then add the Petal Pink completed panel with dimensionals.Add the folded folded 1/4″ Old Olive Ribbon with a glue dot I wanted this to be a thank you card… so I pulled out Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and stamped the sentiment on a 1/4″ Whisper White strip and cut it apart adding a banner end to the ‘thanks’ word. I adhered these with liquid glue.

For the envelope I adhered the same Peony Garden DSP to the envelope flap then stamped the ‘fleur’ across the bottom with Pear Pizzazz ink.

Thanks for stopping by.

May you have a beautiful day.

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia

Today’s card is made with the amazing Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. This stamp set has additional options … first there are the two stamp sets, then matching dies and finally an embossing folder. Today we use just the one stamp set and the embossing folder. The card is elegant and depending on the sentiment used, could be for many purposes. This is a thank you card, for I’m grateful for a lot, and during this time especially it seems appropriate to give thanks. Let take a look…

And here are the details on how to make it:

  • Smokey Slate card stock 4 1/4″ x 11″
  • Night of Navy 4″ x 5 1/4″ (cut 2, one for the inside)
  • Silver Foil 4 1/8″ x5 1/8″, 2 7/8″ x 4 1/8″
  • Whisper White 3 7/9″ x 5 1/8″ (for the inside)

 

  • With your embossing buddy, rub one panel of the Night of Navy,. With Versamark ink, stamp the large flower from Good Morning Magnolia, sprinkle with silver embossing powder and heat set. Make certain all is glistening silver before setting aside to cool.

Let’s create the inside at this point and come back to the front later.

  • Adhere the second panel of Night of Navy to the inside, using liquid glue.
  • With your Whisper White cs, stamp the sentiment and leaves with Night of Navy ink. Adhere this panel to the inside Night of Navy.

Now back to the front..

  • With the Stitched Rectangles, cut the center of that magnificent magnolia.
  • Adhere the larger section of the magnolia to the larger silver foil using snail.
  • Adhere the smaller piece to the smaller Silver Foil with snail. Add dimensionals to this piece and adhere to the larger magnolia, matching all of the floral design.
  • TIP…Adhering  to foil with liquid glue is slippery and the paper often moves. I strongly encourage using snail or dimensionals when adhering to foil papers.

The envelope…

  • Cut a piece of Night of Navy 2 1/4″ x 6″, spritz with water to soften the paper fibers and run through the Magnolia Lane 3D embossing folder.
  • Adhere to the envelope flap with liquid glue and trim.
  • Stamp the leaf in the lower left corner of the envelope front with Night of Navy ink. (I might have taken my picture a bit early and didn’t capture this, but I did do it!)

Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Notecards and Tulip Builder Punch

Today’s card is made using the Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Notecards and Tulip Builder Punch AND the Pleased as Punch DSP that is a free item when purchasing at least $50 worth of product during the final days of Sale-a-bration.

Before we get to the card… how are you doing? With the health crisis everyone is experiencing, are you feeling closed in or is this a time to “get things done” or a time to meditate or a time to be outside? Before we see the card for today, I will share a picture of myself with our dear English Springer Spaniel Rusty. He is eight but thinks he is 2! We three, hubby was along too, visited a state park nearby and took a wonderful walk. Rusty loved every step and smell! Hubby took the picture so obviously isn’t in it… We live on the East Coast and the water in these photos  is leading to Barnegat Bay. Here they are…

Peaceful, right? It is definitely a great place to visit, walk around, feel connected to Mother Nature and our Almighty Maker.

Please follow the guidelines the CDC is recommending. May you and family be safe and stay well.

 

Now to the card of today…

Does this card shout Spring or what? Here are the details…

  • Using the Pleased as Punch DSP, use the Tulip Builder Punch to punch the desired tulips. I did three. What’s kind of fun is the reverse side of this paper is the wonderful green design you see used for the leaves on this card. Pretty neat, huh? Stampin’ Up! does it right!
  • Using the Timeless Tulips stamp set, stamp the stems in Granny Apple Green.
  • Adhere the Tulip punches… the bottom or tulip on the far right is adhered with liquid glue. The yellow tulip is adhered with one layer of dimensionals. The pink tulip is adhered using two layers of dimensionals.
  • Next I placed the leaves: far right is adhered with liquid glue; bottom left tulip is adhered with one layer of dimensionals; the middle leaf is adhered with a double layer of dimensionals.
  • Oh I love this bow… it is Petal Pink silver edge ribbon and just really adds a special touch to the card. It was adhered with a dimensional cut in half.
  • The sentiment was stamped with the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a 1/2′ strip of Whisper White. Trim as shown and adhere with dimesnionals.
  • For the inside I adhered a 1/2″ x 5″ strip of the Pleased As Punch DSP to the far right edge. When the card is closed it shows beyond the scalloped edge 🙂 I also stamped the sentiment THANKS from the Ornate Thanks stamp set. CARD IS COMPLETE!!! So fun.
  • On the envelope front I stamped the word ‘seriously,’ from the Ornate Thanks stamp set. It helps the individual understand even before opening the card that there is a special note inside.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like… I wish I could see the person who is receiving this card when they open it – but it’s going in the mail. You know how that is…

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

 

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 Suite Masculine Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks stamp set and Ornate Layers dies from the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue to create my masculine thank you card today. It was quick and it was easy!

  • Starting with Old Olive 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ card stock, score @ 4 1/4″
  • Cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz 4 ” x 5 1/4″. I appreciate how these two greens work together.
  • Cut a piece Ornate Garden Specialty DSP with the largest die in the Stitched Rectangle dies. Using liquid glue, adhere this to the Pear Pizzazz.
  • Cut a piece of Gold Foil from the Ornate Layers dies. Put dimensionals on the back and attach to the Pear Pizzazz and Ornate Garden SDSP.
  • Cut a strip of Basic Black 1/2″ x 5″. Adhere using snail to the center of the Gold Foil.
  • Cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz about 1 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. Run your embossing buddy across this to remove all static. Stamp the front sentiment with Versamark ink and sprinkle with Black embossing powder and heat set. Once cooled, cut this out with another of the Ornate Layers dies. Color six Rhinestone Basic jewels with Black Stampin’ Up! blends and adhere as shone. Adhere dimensionals to the back of this piece and attach, centering it, over the black strip.
  • Almost done with the front… Add dimensionals to the large Pear Pizzazz and attach, centering, to the Old Olive card base. This card now has three layers on dimensionals and shows such depth and beauty. I love it!

The inside…

  • Cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz 4′ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to the card base with liquid glue.
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White 3 3/4″ x 5″. Stamp the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Adhere a strip of the Ornate Garden SDSP 1/2″ x 5″ toward the bottom as shown. Adhere the Whisper White to the Pear Pizzazz already attached to the inside of the card and voila!

The envelope flap… adhere a piece of the Ornate Garden SDSP, cut to fit. Your card is ready to share, send, give.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you like this masculine card. I think it looks really elegant. And.. it will fit inside the gift bag from yesterday’s post. Lucky man!!!

Remember the Ornate Garden Suite will become available to customers Apr 1 – May 31. Items will be in the Annual catalogue, but probably not listed as a suite – so definitely a deal as a suite of products.  When you shop with me please use my HOST CODE XYW2SYNV to receive a free gift from me!

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!

Stampin’ UP! Ornate Garden Suite

Eeeek! My order for the Ornate Garden Suite arrived, so yesterday I took some time to play. I only had time to create two items and I’m really excited about them. Take a peek. (OOPS … I’ll share the other items in tomorrows post.)

The card was super simple and oh my goodness, the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder is just wonderful – little tiny flowers all over. That is going to become a favorite I’m sure. And the Ornate Layers dies – eeek! Stunning results!

Details:

  • Run the ….. lightly spritz a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of So Saffron cs  then run it through the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. The spritzing allows the papers’ fibers to bend to create deeper impressions instead of cracking and breaking and not as clear definition. Does that make sense?
  • Using about a 22″ piece of the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo pack (I used the Old Olive ribbon in the package), wrap it around the embossed piece and tie a bow. Make certain it is centered on the paper. Use glue dots to keep in place. Adhere the embossed cs with liquid glue directly to the Whisper White thick 4 1/4″ x 11″ base.
  • Using the Ornate Layers dies cut a piece of Terracotta Tile. Cut a piece of Whisper White cs, stamp the front sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set and adhere with liquid glue to the Terracotta Tile die cut. Adhere two little Gilded Gems from this wonderful suite of products. Put dimensionals on the back  of the die cut and place it centered over the ribbon. The front it complete!

The inside…

  • Cut another piece of So Saffron cs 4″ x 5 1/4″, run it through your diecut machine using another of the Ornate Layers dies. Is that gorgeous or what! This could so easily be a card front, or better yet, used to cut down the embossed piece.  Yes, yes! I must try that. On with the directions… Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink from the Ornate Thanks stamp set. Adhere to the inside of the Whisper White thick cs.
  • Those little die cut pieces are from another of the die cuts in this set that I saved, cuz I liked them. 🙂 I’ll share that die another day.

Be sure to decorate your envelope. I stamped the adorable little flower in Tuxedo Black Memento ink then used Stamp’ UP! blends to color it. Just remember, when using the blends on an envelope to slip a piece of scrap paper inside so the blends don’t bleed through the envelope. Ask me how I know that!!! And I adhered a piece from the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the flap. These papers are stunning folks! I can’t wait to share more of them with you.

Thanks for stopping by. Please remember to used my HOST CODE 2TMMA9HX when ordering $50 + in products. This gives you the opportunity to receive a free product of your choice from me – not to exceed $10.

Timeless Tulips

Hello! The birds are singing wildly this morning. Isn’t it amazing how bulbs popping out of the ground can get us all enthused? It happens to me for sure. So today’s card is a hint of Spring – Pool Party is the lead color with just a hint of Petal Pink and Soft Seafoam. Here it is…

  • Card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ – Pool Party
  • Layer 4″ x 4 1/4″ Pool Party dry embossed with the beautiful Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder. Adhere with liquid glue directly to the card base
  • Layer #2: 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ Pool Party. Cut 3″ x 4″  Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP and adhere with liquid glue to the smaller Pool Party. Put dimesnionals on the back and adhere to the card base by centering it on the card.
  • Layer #3: Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies and second from largest scalloped edge, cut a piece of Whisper White. Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, the stamp the smaller tulip in Petal Pink, followed by the stem and leaves in Soft Seafoam.
  • Adhere pearls from Share What You Love OR color pearls using Stampin Blends markers.

Love the simplicity of this primarily monochromatic look. The sentiment chose lends itself to being used as a birthday, sympathy, congratulations or just a note card.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the card today. This kind of card lifts my spirits and I hope it does the recipient as well.

Sneak Peek – Breathtaking Bouquet – 2020 Mini Catalogue

Todays card is from the new 2020 Mini Catalogue that opens for ordering Jan – Jun. The stamp set is called Breathtaking Bouquet Background Stamp Set. I used it in my Stamparatus with Versamark and then embossed with white embossing powder on Seaside Spray. I really like the softness of this color! The really fun part happened next as I began coloring the image with various Stampin’ Up! Blends. It takes a bit of time but somehow it’s soothing to me. Here are the Blends I have used for the flowers: Light and Dark So Saffron, Light and Dark Purple Posy (love this color too!), Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo, Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie,Light and Dark Blackberry Bliss. For the leaves I used Light and Dark Granny Apple Green plus Light and Dark Old Olive. The ribbons used to simply wrap the card were Whisper White Flax ribbon and the Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic ribbon from the Holiday catalogue. For the inside I used the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp set for the sentiment (using Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends) and the dragonflies from the Friend Like You stamp set using Seaside Spray ink pad.

Here are the deets for the card:
* 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Seaside Spray CS, scored at 4 1/4″
* Seaside Spray Layer 4 x 5 1/4″ (front)
* Whisper White 4 X 5 1/4″ (inside)

Please notice the envelope – stamped in dragonflies as though they are circling the card!

TIP:
Cut your card stock for the stamping Breathtaking Bouquet, larger than 4 x 5 1/4 as the stamp set is large and you want it to stamp all the way to the edge. After stamping and embossing, pare down to appropriate size :o)

Here’s the card!

And the inside with the envelope.

Hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of a very pretty stamp.
