True Love DSP

Stampin’ Up! True Love Shines

Woohoo! Sale-a-bration & the NEW Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog went live yesterday… did you order? And what was your favorite item? Just curious… So, yes, I placed an order too – and will be super excited when it arrives. I couldn’t choose just one fav… the more I work with a product, the more it becomes a favorite. I used to hoard Designer Series Paper – in other words, I thought it was too pretty to cut into. Once I got over that a couple of years ago (thank goodness!) I really started having fun with the various papers. I really like coloring and the True Love DSP is perfect for that. I have two cards for you today using that paper and coloring with Blends.

Bright colors with this black & white DSP really works! Card 1 is coordinated with Magenta Madness, which takes on a life of its own. The flower is fussy cut after coloring with the Magenta Madness Blends for the flower and Old Olive for the leaves. And of course the coordinating Magenta Madness ribbon and the DSP is layered on Magenta Madness card stock. And there’s a fun Square Vellum doily that I cut and used just a portion, slipped under the ribbon. Although it doesn’t show in this photo, the flower was covered in Wink of Stella and then I added the Metallic Pearls in Silver.

The color coordination on Card #2 is Bumblebee and I love this contrast too. Again the flower was fussy cut after coloring with Mango Melody Blends on the flower and Granny Apple Green on the leaves. For the center of the flower I used the Bronze Blend. This card got as strip of the Bumblebee covered in the Whisper White Polka Dot Ribbon and 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots which don’t show in the photo above.

Here you can see the whole card with the Bumblebee strip, ribbon, the enamel dots & the sentiment. The sentiment comes from Many Messages stamp set and cut with the Messages Dies.

This shows card #1 in all its splendor – with another flower colored and fussy cut and adhered with liquid glue to the envelope front.

And here are the insides of both cards…

You can see what I did on each card and I love the finished look. Cut a strip of the True Love DSP and color just a few of the flowers. More photos….

Card #2 also uses the Stitched Circles Dies (Whisper White) and the Layering Circles Dies (scalloped in Basic Black. The circles are adhered together, then placed on dimensionals over the Bumblebee strip. The sentiment banner is also on dimensionals.

Card #1: the Magenta Madness panel is on dimensionals as you can see, with the ribbon wrapped around the entire panel. The flower is also on dimensionals. Card cuts will be listed at the bottom of this post. All product used to make these two cards are listed for your convenience in ordering.

Stampin’ Up! True Love in Black & White

WOOHOO! Today is THE DAY… Jan to Jun 2021 Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration are LIVE! Order, order order 😁 Yeeha… OK, enuf of that, right? Right! On with the show… Today’s card was super fun to make – I had not done one of these before and I don’t really know what to call it – so… calling it ‘Quilting in Paper Strips’. It’s made with the True Love Designer Series Paper available TODAY – just sayin’.

True Love Designer Series Paper – Quilting in Paper Strips – #1

TGIF has a challenge with the theme being black & white – and I’m entering this card in that challenge. No doubt there will be lots of entries – what the heck.

This True Love Designer Series Paper is just beautiful… to say the least. I don’t have the stamps & dies that coordinate with this paper – yet… but will soon… but as you can see, the paper did all the work for this card. And it was really super easy. Strips were added in a dark/ light kind of pattern. In true quilting, there is dark, medium, then light, and I got some of that but not totally. Nonetheless, I think this looks really sharp and I’m excited, especially since it’s my first try with this process.

The strips are cut in various widths – no need to really measure – anywhere from 3/8″ to 5/8″. I adhered them to a basic black card stock 3 7/8 x 5 1/8. I began with three strips going in the same direction, then three strips in another direction, spacing them a bit apart so you see the background color (in this case, the Basic Black), until the entire page was covered. And sometimes I adhered with liquid glue and sometimes with Stampin Seal. It just depended. I trimmed the edges so they were even, then attached this to a slightly larger piece of Whisper White card stock (4 x 5 1/4) with liquid glue. I then wrapped this with fun ribbon – Glittered Organdy Ribbon – around the card and secured in back with glue dots. I prepared a bow out of the same ribbon but did not attach it just yet. I wanted a sentiment… the Simply Succulent stamp set was right on my desk and I pulled from that the sentiment ‘thanks’, stamped that with Memento Black ink on a Whisper White scrap. I cut it with the smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I die cut another piece from the same die set – Stitched So Sweetly Dies in Basic Black card stock. I adhered the two together with liquid glue, put dimensionals on the back and adhered right over the ribbon. Then I adhered the bow with a glue dot. I added some more glam with three Rhinestone Basic Jewels. This completed panel was adhered to a Basic Black card base (4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2) with dimensionals and the card front was complete.

True Love Designer Series Paper – inside, #2

I fussy cut from one of the True Love Designer Series Papers, these gorgeous flowers. Normally I would cover them in color… but for the TGIF challenge, I couldn’t do that. I adhere them with liquid glue to this panel of Whisper White card stock, again at 3 7/8 x 5 1/8. I adhered this directly to the card base and the inside was done.

Despite the final picture… I redid the envelope… I actually did strips in the lower left corner 😁 I’ll see if I can upload the photo… having trouble. YAY – got it.. the photo at right.

For the envelope, I covered the flap in coordinating paper from True Love DSP and adhered one of the fussy cut flowers with leaves from the same paper with liquid glue – FINIS!

So – what do you think? I hope you like… If I can help you in any way to order these products, please give me a holler.
