Seashells In Life

Hi!  How are you today?  I love looking for shells when I get to the beach – they are so pretty.  I have a jar in my kitchen with the shells I have collected over the years.  Do you collect them?  Well, today’s card reminds me of those shells.

This set debuted in the January-June Mini Catalog tho it took me a while to use it – so I am happy that it carried over to the Annual Catalog.  The shells are stamped on Designer Series Paper scraps from the now retired coordinating paper pack.   The In Good Taste or Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper packs would be great to use in place of this retired paper.

I love that this suite contained an Embossing Folder called Seashells 3D.  It creates such a beautiful background.   Did you know that the die set Seaside Seashells work with this Embossing Folder?  Pretty cool!   And what’s even sweeter – you can still purchase the dies and stamp set as a bundle in the Annual Catalog!

For the card, I used Sahara Sand for my base.  The embossed layer is Basic White.  As mentioned, the shells are stamped on Designer Series Paper using Sahara Sand ink.   The sentiment is also stamped in Sahara Sand ink and the Banners Pick-A-Punch was used to create the flag end.

A relatively quick card to put together if you are in need of a few.

Turtle Love

Hi!  The Turtle Friends bundle in the Annual Catalog is my favorite.  He is just adorable and will make fabulous cards for any occasions.

Birthday, Belated, Turtle Friends, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2021AnnualCatalog

I made this card following a sketch challenge from the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group.     The Designer Series Paper is a Host item that you can earn with a $150 (prior to S/H and tax) purchase or by hosting a workshop or catalog party with your family and friends that reaches a minimum of $150.  The colors of this paper are so bright and cheerful – I love them.

The card base is Granny Apple Green.  The turtle is stamped with Early Espresso Ink on Crumb Cake card stock and punched with the coordinating punch.  The shell is Granny Apple Green ink on Basic White cardstock.  While the punch does not do just the shell, you can use it to punch and just trim the bottom of the shell.   The hat is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink and fussy cut with Paper Snips.  It is colored with Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green markers.

The sentiment is stamped in Granny Apple Green ink as well.  The turtle is attached using dimensionals.  A few of the Artistry Blooms Adhesive backed sequins finishes it off.

Here is a link to the sketch.

Hopping Away

Hi!  Happy Friday and end of the work week!  Today I have 2 cards to share with you featuring the soon-to-be gone Kangaroo & Company!  This set is adorable and perfect for welcoming a new little one, celebrating a birthday, or just wanting to let someone know you are thinking of them.

Baby, Kangaroo, Kangaroo & Company, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #JanJune2021Mini

Let’s talk about this adorable baby card.  The base is Balmy Blue followed by a layer of Basic Black.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper pack which is retiring at the end of the month.

The kangaroo is stamped in Memento Black Ink and colored with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and Flirty Flamingo for the ear.  The baby is colored with Soft Suede Stampin’ Blend and Flirty Flamingo as well.   The coordinating dies in the bundle are used to die cut both.   The mama die also cuts a slit for her pouch so baby can get tucked in!

The sentiment is stamped in Balmy Blue and the hears in Flirty Flamingo.  The Ovals were die cut with the now retired Layering Ovals and Stitched Shapes dies.  I had sent this card to my nephew and his wife on the arrival of their little boy.

 

Baby, Friendship, Kangaroo, Kangaroo & Company, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #JanJune2021Mini

For the second card,  I decided to do a sponged background for my focal point.  I created a template using the piece of cardboard that comes in the Designer Series Paper – cut down to the same size as my image panel – in this case 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ – and then die cut an oval from the center.  Lay the template over your Basic White cardstock and sponge Pear Pizzazz for the grass and Balmy Blue for the sky.  Remove the template and you have your sponged background.

The grass was stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink.  The flowers, butterfly and kangaroo were stamped in Memento Black Ink.  The kangaroo was colored with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.  The flowers were colored with Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends.  The butterfly was colored with the light and dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends.  All three pieces were die cut with their coordinating dies.  The sentiment was stamped in Memento Black ink.

The base of the card is Gorgeous Grape with a layer of Highland Heather on top.

Don’t let this bundle hop away!  Order your set here.

Happy Thoughts

Hi!  As we come up on the end of the January-June Mini Catalog (it’s retiring on June 30th), I wanted to point out the Happy Thoughts stamp set.  This stamp set contains sentiments for both the inside and outside of your card, making it the perfect addition to your papercrafting Go-To’s.

Happy Thoughts, Any Occasion, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #JanJune21Mini

This card features the gorgeous Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper – also retiring on June 30.  The Paper is cut using the Quite Curvy Dies – also disappearing on June 30.

And why did I not notice before how well Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape coordinate?  I guess I don’t often reach for the purples in my collection – but I might just do that a little more as I love this combination.

This is a quick and simple card, but by adding a dash of ribbon (sorry, it is already retired) and Pastel Pearls (Yay! These carried over to the 2021 Annual Catalog), you have a gorgeous card ready to send that can be made in about 10 minutes.

Here are the dimensions and scoring:

  • Base: Gorgeous Grape – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side and folded
  • Layer: Highland Heather – 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Designer Series Paper – 5 1/4″ x 3″ and cut with the Quite Curvy dies

Add some bling and your sentiment- and you are done!

Make sure you check out the Last Chance list for the Jan-June Mini catalog and grab your favorites (some at a discount!), before they are gone!

Sweet Strawberries

I love the pop of color on this card from the Poppy Parade of the strawberries and sentiments to the Soft Succulent of the leaves and stems.  It just makes it pop.  And what a sweet way to Thank someone special.

The base of the card is Poppy Parade measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and folded in half.  A Basic White layer measuring 5 1/2″ x 4″ holds are main images.

Crumb Cake ink is used to stamp the flowers randomly on the Basic White.  The Strawberries and leaves are stamped on scrap Basic White and punched with the coordinating Strawberry Builder punch.  A few Gilded Gems adds the final touch.

I am so excited that the Strawberry Punch is back in stock and that you can now order this sweet bundle!

In The Field

Hi!  Today I am saying goodbye to a few more of my favorite stamps and embossing folder.  I shared these cards in my Facebook Live last night.

Field Journal, Masculine, Thank You, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog

The main images are from the Field Journal stamp set.   I wanted to show that the set could be used for feminine cards as well as masculine.  I also incorporate Here’s A Card – a great sentiment set for both the front and inside of the card as well as the Swirly Frames stamp set – great for adding a little punch to your cards.  I decided to use the same color palate for both cards – Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler.

Both pieces of Cherry Cobbler have been embossed.  The berry card uses the Old World Paper Embossing Folder – love the texture you get from this folder.  The Chipmunk uses the Subtle Embossing Folder – a little hard to see in this picture – but does add a nice touch to the overall card.  I am sad to see both folders leaving our line-up next week.

If you are missing any of these products, simply click on them below to go to my store and add them to your cart.  They are truly a great addition to your crafting stash!

Here’s the video showing both cards and how they are made:

Sunshine on A Rainy Day

Hi and Good Morning!  It is a rainy Saturday here for me and I could use a little brightening up – so decided to share with you today this fun interactive card featuring one of my favorite sets that is sadly retiring on May 3.

Just Because, Friendship. Under My Umbrella, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog

The images for this card are from the Under My Umbrella stamp set.  The set along with the coordinating Umbrella Builder punch are both leaving us on May 3.    I die cut squares using the two largest stitched squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies (also retiring on May 3).

The boots and flowers are stamped with Black Memento Ink and colored with the following Stampin’ Blends:  Real Red, Pool Party, Old Olive and So Saffron.

I did mention the card is interactive – if you pull on the ribbon, the boots flip open to reveal this:

Revving It Up For The Guys

Hi!  We are counting down the Annual 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and today we are saying goodbye to Geared Up Garage and coordinating dies with these masculine birthday cards!

Garage Gears, Masculine, Birthday, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog

Did you check out the prints in the Well Suited Designer Series Paper from the January-June Mini Catalog?  They are great to pair with this set in the Annual Catalog.

For this particular card, I stamped the car in Memento Black ink and colored with the Real Red Stampin’ Blends.   The sentiment is from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set and also stamped in Memento Black ink.

To add a little flair, three banner tags were created using the retiring Triple Banner punch from Basic Gray, Real Red and Basic Black card stock.

For this second card, I switched up my color palette to Gray Granite and Night of Navy.

Geared Up Garage, Masculine, Birthday, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog

The designer series paper is once again from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper pack in the January-June Mini catalog.  The gas can and tool box are stamped in Night of Navy ink and die cut.  The gears are die cut from Night of Navy card stock.  I added the oil splotches behind my tool box using Gray Granite ink.  I love how this card turned out.  As I have a brother-in-law that is a mechanic, this card is perfect for his birthday!

I have a few family members that are into cars and racing and the top card will be perfect for them.

Make sure you grab the stamp set and coordinating dies soon – they are both on SALE on the Last Chance list.  The dies are on low inventory – so don’t wait!  Click here to get them today!
