More Scrappy Fun!

Hi!  Continuing on with our Snailed It Suite this week for today’s card.  And, wanted to give you another idea on how to use those Designer Series Paper scraps.

Hello, Friendship, Snailed It, DSP Scraps, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #JanJuneMini2021

This is such a fun layout to play with and so much you can do with it – plus a great way to use up those scraps!

For this card, I started with a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper pack measuring 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″.  On the 4 1/2″ side, cut at 2 1/4″.  Rotate, keeping both pieces together, and on the 3 1/4″ side, cut at 1 5/8″.  You now have 4 equal sized rectangles.  Keep them in order for placement on the card.

For a mat, I used Real Red Cardstock measuring 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″.  Cut on the 4 3/4″ side at 2 3/8″.  Rotate, keeping both pieces together, and cut on the 3 1/2″ side at 1 3/4″.    Attach the Designer Series Pieces to these 4 Real Red pieces.

For the base of the card, I used Blushing Bride measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side and folded in half.  A layer of Basic White cardstock measuring 5 1/4″ x 4″ is layered on top.

Adhere 3 of the 4 squares as shown in the pattern above to the Basic White layer.  Stamp your sentiment in the lower right corner.   I punched a 2″ Real Red circle from scrap cardstock.

The mushrooms are stamped in Jet Black StaZon and colored with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen.  Colors are Garden Green, Real Red, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight.

Here’s another version using the Snail:

Snailed It, Birthday, DSP Scraps, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #JanJuneMini2021

You don’t have to use all the same Designer Series Paper pattern, the final rectangles measure 2 1/4″ x 1 5/8″.  The mat layers measures 2 3/8″ x 1 3/4″.

Purchase the Snail Mail Suite Collection in my on-line store!  The suite qualifies you for a FREE Sale-A-Bration item when purchased prior to Feb 28th!  Don’t miss out!

A Little Birthday Snail

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a good weekend! Since I kicked off the week yesterday with a Snail Valentine, I decided to continue the theme and today we have a Snail Birthday.

Snailed It, Birthday, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Fun Fold, #JanJuneMini2021

Do you remember this fold from 2018?  It is the double point fold that I came across from Lisa Curcio.  Since it’s been a few years, I figured it was time to revisit it.  It is relatively easy to do and a great way to use your Designer Series Paper.

  1. Cut two pieces of Designer Series Paper 3″ x 4″.  Score at 1″ along the 3″ side.  (If your paper has a direction to it, for the top flap, score at 1″ from the top, for the bottom flap, score at 1″ from the bottom”)
  2. Fold the corners furthest from the score line down to the score line.
  3. Use adhesive to hold the corners down.
  4. Attach the 1″ flap to the top and bottom of a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Basic White card stock.
  5. Attach the Basic White card stock to a piece of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ colored card stock.
  6. Use punches or die cuts for your front focal image that is big enough to span the two points.
  7. Decorate as desired and stamp a sentiment under the focal image for the inside of the card if desired.
  8. Attach the focal image to the TOP ONLY using dimensionals.

Here is a video showing the card above (it is the second card in the video):

For the snail, he is stamped in Jet Black Stazon and colored with Watercolor Pencils and a blender pen.  He is die cut with the coordinating die set.

The Stitched Nested Label dies provided the perfect layers to span the two flaps.  Did you catch the beveled edge on the Basic White layer?  That is easy to do and a great way to get more out of your dies!  Before popping out the cardstock from the die, flip it over and run your stylus along the inside edge of the die – it creates that beveled look.  (I show that in the video as well)!

And here he is in Real Red:

A Snail Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day!  What better way to celebrate than by sharing this adorable snail who’s stopping by to say Hi!

Valentine, Snail, Snailed It, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #JanJuneMini2021

Isn’t he so sweet?  This little guy can be found in the Snailed It Suite of the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.  He is stamped in Jet Black Stazon Ink and colored with Watercolor Pencils.

The little hearts are from the same catalog and part of the same suite.  They are the perfect addition to this card.

The sentiment comes from the January Paper Pumpkin Kit – which coordinated with this suite.  If you aren’t a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber and live in North America, I highly recommend it. (More information below).

The stitched trail around the outside of this panel I thought was perfect!  It is made using the Stitched with Whimsy Dies.

The heart paper behind the panel is from the Snail Mail Desginer Series Paper Pack.  I’d say, just get the entire suite, you won’t regret it!

Basic Black and Real Red cardstock complete the card.

So, a little more about Paper Pumpkin – it is a monthly subscription that ships right to your door every month for just $22 + tax. (USA).  The box contains everything you need from stamps, an ink spot, adhesives to the elements needed to complete the project.  The projects can range from cards, 3D items, home decor or treat packaging.   It is a box of creativity that will take between 30-60 minutes to complete.  If you haven’t tried it out, or it has been a while, I recommend giving it a shot.  There is no minimum commitment – you can cancel at any time – or if an upcoming kit isn’t to your liking (I typically provide hints in my newsletter), you can also skip a month.   The March Kit is a card kit and will include stencils and a sponge!  How fun is that!  Sign-up today here!

For The Coffee Lovers

Hi!  Today I have a card for the coffee lovers out there.  One of the first bundles I purchased from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog was the Nothing’s Better Than bundle.  This is such a great bundle and sparks so many ideas.  Coffee, Love, Nothings Better Than, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog

This would make a great Valentine’s Day card!  The heart background is made using Pool Party Cardstock and the Detailed Hearts die.  The words are die cut from Blushing Bride, Petal Pink, Rococo Rose and Early Espresso Cardstock.   The cup is stamped in Blushing Bride and Early Espresso inks.  The splats are Pool Party.  A layer of Pool Party Designer Series Paper is placed behind the Basic White stamped image panel.  The base of the card is Early Espresso.

I am not a coffee drinker -but I do love chocolate – so for my Valentine’s Day card, I believe I’ll switch it up using the chocolate image in this bundle.  What about you?  Coffee or chocolate lover?

The purchase of the Nothing’s Better Than Bundle and Detailed Hearts die together earns you a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!   Shop today to take advantage of this great deal!

As Promised

Hi!  As promised, today I will share one more layout for using those three strips of Designer Series Paper shown yesterday.  While I used the same stamp set, I did change up the color palette.

Thank You, Dragonfly Garden, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #JanJune2021Mini, #dspscrapsThe Designer Series Paper is from the Dandy Garden Designer Series 6″x6″ pack.   I went with Mossy Meadow and Bumble Bee as my color palette for this card.  The Designer Paper strips are staggered behind the stamped panel.

I did enlarge the Bumble Bee layer and added a Basic White layer to add a bit of stamping.  The dragonflies are stamped in Bumble Bee and the sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  The sentiment is part of the Dragonfly Garden stamp set.

If you are looking for another layout using strips, check out this past post – it is also a fun layout to use up scraps.

Three Little Strips

Hi!  How are you today?  Me, I am on top of the world!  Thank you so much to those who commented on Saturday’s post – either directly on the post or via email.  You truly made my day and my heart full.

Today, I have a card using the Dragonfly Garden Bundle from the January-June Mini Catalog.  I heart Dragonflies and Butterflies and have a hard time resisting suites that contain them.

Dragonflies, Friendship, Just Because, Dragonfly Garden, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #DSP, #JanJune2021Mini

I love the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper – the colors are so me!  I wanted to share how you can use strips of Designer Series Paper to enhance your creations.

For this card, the strips are all 1″ wide.  The two shorter ones are 3 1/4″ in length and the bumble bee strip is 4″ in length.   The dragonfly is punched from a different piece of Designer Series Paper in the pack.  The colors are Misty Moonlight and Bumble Bee.   The sentiment is stamped in Misty Moonlight.   I did add a touch of sparkle to the dragonfly with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (hard to see in the picture – will try and highlight that next time I do it).

For this second card, I rotated the design to be portrait.

Dragonflies, Friendship, Just Because, Dragonfly Garden, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #DSP, #JanJune2021Mini

While all supplies measure the same, I did feel like I had a bit more white space, so I also stamped the small grouping of dragonflies in the along the right hand edge in Bumble Bee.

Here are the full measurements:

  • Base – Misty Moonlight – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ and folded
  • Basic White – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Two strips of Designers Series Paper – 1″ x 3 1/4″
  • One strip of Designer Series Paper – 1″ x 4″
  • Bumble Bee – 2″ x 2 3/4″
  • Scraps of Designer Series Paper or Basic White – either punch dragonflies from Designer Series Paper or stamp on Basic White and punch

Don’t be afraid to alter the layout or sketch – it is fun to get those creative juices flowing.  I’ll share another layout using the strips tomorrow.

The Dragonfly Garden Bundle is part of the Dandy Garden Suite.  I hope you will check it out in my on-line store!

Forever Fern Meets Fancy Fold

Forever Fern, Fancy Fold, Friendship, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog

  • Base Cardstock measuring 5 1/2″ x 7 1/4″ – score at 3″ on the 7 1/4″

These sweet little birds want to say Hello!

Quite Curvy, Hello, Friendship, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #JanJune2021Mini

This card features the Quite Curvy bundle in the January-June Mini Catalog.  You may have purchased it during last year’s sneak peek promotion, but if not, you can definitely get it now.

There are some fun dies in this set allowing you to get that curve through the card.  While I could have placed a sentiment (there are curvy ones in the stamp set) in the opening, I opted to use the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog.  I love the texture this paper adds to the card.

The birds and flowers are stamped in Memento Black ink and colored with Stamping Blends – Rococo Rose, Just Jade, and Daffodil Delight for the flowers, and Crumb Cake and Ivory for the birds.

These are die cut with the coordinating dies.  The branch in the corner is die cut from Just Jade card stock.

The base of the card is Whisper White Thick (for which Basic White Thick can be used).  A mat layer in Rococo Rose (which will retire on May 3) sits behind a layer of Whisper White that was Embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder and then die cut with one of the curvy dies.

The sentiment is also stamped in Memento Black ink.

I hope this little birds bring a bit of cheer to your day.

Thanks for stopping by!
