Stampin’ Up Dragonfly Garden

Hello folks… yesterday was a rainy day, a perfect opportunity to create indoors – and I did just that. I used the Dragonfly Garden stamp set with coordinating Dragonfly Punch and the such fun to use, Blending Brushes.

Dragonfly Garden Bundle – #1

Don’t you appreciate the softness of this card? The background is a Whisper White panel 4 x 5 1/4 colored with So Saffron ink and the NEW Blending Brushes. I basically covered the entire panel but made it a bit darker in the middle area – to highlight the dragonfly and the lovely floral bunch which I added next. The floral bunch comes from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and was stamped in Misty Moonlight ink. The dragonfly was punched with the new Dragonfly punch, from one of the papers in the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP pack. I added Wink of Stella to the entire dragonfly for a bit of sparkle, put dimensionals on the back and adhered it to the card front.

oops – upside down… Dragonfly Garden Bundle

The sentiment comes from the new Many Messages stamp set & coordinating Messages Dies. A couple of days I stamped this full sheet of sentiments in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and die cut them with the full sheet die. It’s really handy to have these all ready! This sentiment was also put on dimensionals and adhered to the card front.

I added three 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots and the card front panel was complete. Put dimensionals on the panel and adhere to the Thick Whisper White card base (8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.

Dragonfly Garden Bundle – #1

For the inside I again used the wonderful Blending Brushed to create an oval coloring with So Saffron ink. I then stamped the sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink using the Woven Heirlooms stamp set.

Dragonfly Garden Bundle – inside – #2

For the envelope I used the Blending Brushes and So Saffron Ink to go around the entire envelope, including the flap. I then stasmped a portion of the floral bunch from Dragonfly garden stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink and the envelope & card were done!

Stampin’ Up! Woven Heirlooms Sympathy Part 2

Hello again! How are you after all the Black Friday hullabaloo? Do you feel good about your purchases? As for me… a tiny bit of online shopping, but nothing else. And the turkey… it is boned and ready for an awesome soup – yay…I will chop & cook the veggies this morning so we can have it for lunch. My mouth is watering already… Is this a card blog? Oh yes… must get back on track 😜…

I liked the result of the Woven Heirlooms card yesterday, that I made two more ~ similar. I’m calling this Part 2.

Just as a comparison, here is yesterday’s card.

Woven Heirlooms Sympathy

The Misty Moonlight card above could easily be sent to a man: the others, well, not so much.

Deets for Misty Moonlight card:

  • Misty Moonlight card stock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4: remove 1/2″ from front
  • Run a panel of Misty Moonlight ( through the Tasteful Textile Embossing folder; adhere to the card front with liquid glue
  • Die cut a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock with the Ornate Layers Dies
  • Stamp the sentiment from Woven Heirlooms stamp set, on a Whisper White card stock (2 3/16 x 3 9/16) in Misty Moonlight ink. Adhere to the die cut with liquid glue. Attach to the card front with dimensionals as shown.
  • Adhere a strip of the 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP in Misty Moonlight (1/2 x 3 3/4) with liquid glue
  • Add Pearl Basic Jewels & a bow tied with the Flowers For Every Season Misty Moonlight/ Silver baker’s twine. The bow is adhered weith a rolled up glue dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a panel of Whisper White 3 3/8 x 4 3/4. This was adhered to the card inside with liquid glue.

For the envelope I used the same 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP (2 1/4 x 6), adhered it to the flap & trimmed to fit. I then stamped a fun design in Misty Moonlight ink on the envelope front. This came from Woven Heirlooms stamp set.

The next card uses Purple Posy for the card base but is less fussy and is done on a regular card base, no trimming from the front.

Woven Heirlooms Sympathy Part 2 – Purple Posy
  • Purple Posy card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Panel of Purple Posy (4 x 5 1/4) run through the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and adhered with liquid glue to the card front.
  • Die cut a Purple Posy panel (3 1/2 x 5)using the Ornate Layers Dies and reserve the outline.
  • Cut a panel of Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP (2 3/16 x 3 9/16) and adhere to the die cut with liquid glue. Put the die cut on dimensionals and adhere to the center of the card.
  • Cut a strip of Whisper White 1 x 4, stamp the sentiment in Highland Heather ink using Woven heirlooms stamp set. Trim ends using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. Adhere to the card front with dimensionals.
  • Add Playing with Patterns Resin Dots

For the inside of the card, stamp the sentiment from Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Highland Heather ink on a Whisper White panel 3 1/4 x 4 3/4. Adhere to the inside of the card with liquid glue. Using the die cut ‘frame’ of the Ornate Layers Die cut from the card front, adhere over the Whisper White panel. Just lovely…

For the envelope, I was running out of the Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP, so I added a strip of Purple Posy card stock, then the remaining amount of DSP. Stamp the fun design from Woven Heirlooms stamp set on the envelope front in Highland Heather ink.

These turned out beautifully; I think, and different enough I didn’t feel as though I was mass producing. I love the ‘frame’ around the sentiment on the purple Posy card. It really adds aa nice touch.

Stampin’ Up! Woven Heirlooms Sympathy

Hello there! Happy POST Thanksgiving or Black Friday shopping? What are you doing today? Are you recuperating from over-eating? Are you shopping ’til you drop? Whatever it is, be safe, ok!!!

Yesterday I was talking with our daughter and she said she needed several sympathy cards. I try to keep her supplied – ya know? She’s one of my ‘backbones’ and it’s a small way of saying thanks. :O)

Woven Heirlooms Sympathy #1

When hubby saw this, he said ‘oh, very Victorian. I like it.’ I guess the soft Petal Pink, that gorgeous die cut AND the bow make it seem so. Here are the deets:

  • Thick Whisper White 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4. Remove 1″ from the front.
  • Whisper White panel 3 3/8 x 5 1/4 run through the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered with liquid glue to the card front.
  • Whisper White panel for the die cut using Ornate Layers Dies. This is just a stunning die cut.
  • New Fine Art Floral DSP (available to customers Jan 5 in the 2021 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog) cut 2 1/4 x 3 5/8. Adhere either with liquid glue or Stampin Seal to the Whisper White Ornate Layer die cut.
  • Put dimensionals on the die cut panel and adhere to the card front as shown – with the die cut OVER the open edge of the cut off card front. This really makes it sow off!
  • Cut a panel of Whisper white 1 x 3 1/2 and stamp the sentiment in Petal Pink ink using the Woven Heirlooms stamp set. Add dimensionals to the back and adhere to the card front.
  • Tie a sweet bow with the Organdy Striped Ribbon (in Petal Pink) and adhere with a glue dot. Fini!
Woven Heirlooms Sympathy, inside – #2
  • On a Whisper White Panel cut 4 x 5 1/4, stamp the Woven Heirlooms sentiment in Petal Pink.
  • Adhere to the inside of the card with liquid glue or Stampin Seal. Voila!
Woven Heirlooms Sympathy – #3
  • Cover the envelope flap with a strip of the same Fine Art Floral DSP (2 1/4 x 6) and trim to fit. Adhere with liquid glue.
  • Stamp a fun design using the Woven Heirlooms stamp set and Petal Pink ink on the front of the envelope.

I took my inspiration for this card on the very first page of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and adapted it for my purposes. Thanks Stampin’ Up!

SU! Daisy Delight – Sympathy Card

Hi Everyone – I haven’t posted in a couple of days… lost a dear friend to complications of Covid 19 and well, it just stinks… know what I mean? She was misdiagnosed initially and therefore didn’t get any treatment for longer than necessary. And that’s disappointing on many fronts. She was a gentle soul.

The card today is being sent to her family. Besides being church buddies, we also belonged to a women’s organization together. This card symbolizes some of that organization. And I find the card uplifting and hope the family does as well.

Daisy Lane – Sympathy

It starts with a panel of Whisper White and I have adhered a strip of Subtles 6×6 DSP in So Saffron. On either side I have used the Ornate Borders Dies to die cut a beautiful trim, again from So Saffron, which also is adhered to the Whisper White panel with liquid glue. I then ran this entire panel through the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. I haven’t done this before – where I added layers to a card front and ran it all through an embossing folder, but I love the look! You may see this again in the near future πŸ™‚

Next I took a piece of the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo pack (Whisper White 1/2″ Faux Linen Ribbon) and adhered it with Stampin’ Seal, right through the middle of the DSP strip. Then I added a length of the 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon in Bumblebee over that. This was attached with Stampin Seal in the back only. Then I added the daisy which was stamped from the Daisy Lane stamp set on Whisper White with So Saffron ink. I stamped twice and punched them both with the Daisy Punch. I curled the petals downward using a gentle touch with the bone folder. These were layered together with liquid glue, then two dimensionals together on the back and onto the card front. The center of the daisy got these awesome Beaded Pearls that add a really finished and elegant touch. I made a bow from the same 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot.

Daisy Lane – Sympathy

The sentiment comes from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set and was stamped in Memento Black ink on Whisper White and fussy cut. I cut down several dimensionals into strips and adhered them to the back of the sentiment and added it to the card front. This entire Whisper White panel was adhered to a slightly larger panel of So Saffron card stock. Dimensionals were added to it and on it went to the Thick Whisper White card base.

For the inside I stamped the large daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in So Saffron, stamping off at least once, onto the center of the Whisper White panel. Right on top of that I stamped the sentiment from Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Memento Black ink. This Whisper White panel was adhered to another piece of So Saffron with liquid glue then onto the inside of the card base. And voila – the card was complete!

Daisy Lane – Sympathy
inside

For the envelope I took a piece of So Saffron cs and ran it through the Ornate Flowers 3D Embossing Folder then added it to the envelope flap. For the envelope front I stamped the smaller daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in stamped off once So Saffron ink. Done, done. AND ready to be sent to my friends family.

Stampin’ Up! Golden Honey Bee SDSP and Poppies Elements

Today’s card is made with the Golden Honey Bee Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Poppies Elements and also uses the new Ornate Layers Dies. It’s a sympathy card for a teammate who lost her adult son very suddenly. I am so sorry, but we shouldn’t have to bury our children….

Golden Honey Bee SDSP, Poppies Elements

  • We start with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ Thick Whisper White for the card base. Score at 5 1/2″.
  • Cut a piece of the Golden Honey SDSP 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
  • Using a scrap of Poppy ParadeΒ  (about 1/2″ in width) and one of the edging dies in the Ornate Layers Dies, cut two lengths of edges. Adhere these edges with liquid glue to the Golden Honey SDSP.
  • Cut a 1″Β  x 4 1/4″ strip of Poppy Parade for the sentiment. Rub with the embossing buddy. Stamp your sentiment with Versamark ink – I used one of my favorites, Woven Heirlooms. Sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat until set. Adhere to the card with liquid glue.
  • I punched out two of the colorful Poppies Elements, one medium vellum poppy and one small vellum leaf. I wrapped a green linen thread around the poppy and tied a bow.(sorry – this is a retired item!). i adhered the double flower onto the standing tall poppy with glue dots, adhered the vellum leaf and the vellum medium flower to this with glue dots. Adhere to the card/ and sentiment using dimensionals.

For the inside…

Woven Heirlooms Sympathy

  • I used the same stamp set for the inside sentiment, Woven Heirlooms, stamped in Black Memento ink onto Whisper White 3 3/4″ x 5″.
  • Adhere the Whisper White to a Basic Black 4″ x 5 1/4″ with liquid glue. Attach this to the inside of the card.

For the envelope, I simply used 3/4″ x 6″ of Poppy Parade and a scrap of the Golden Honey SDSP 1 1/2″ x 6″ and adhered with liquid glue. Your card is done and ready for mailing!

I hope you like todays card. It was certainly made with love for a vey sad friend.

What’s on your agenda today? Hubby and I have worked diligently in cleaning our flower beds of winter’s debris and leaves and I think they are now ready for mulching. It’s interesting what this forced sequestering has encouraged us to accomplish. I’m very pleased with the clean flower beds. We have also been going through some saved pictures and papers and freed ourselves of quite a load of unnecessary items. Yes, there is more to do, there is always more to do, but we have so far at least, used this time productively. Oh, and there’s always card making! How about you? What are you doing to keep yourself occupied?
