Dream Big

Hi!  Today I have a fun card using the retiring Over the Moon stamp set.  I’m sad to see these adorable cows retire at the end of this month.

Over the Moon, Dream, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2019AnnualCatalog

Isn’t he cute?  Makes me smile.  This is a pretty easy card – the base is Real Red card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and folded in half.  There is a Basic Black mat behind the Whisper White stamped panel.  That measures 5 5/16″ x 4 1/16″.  The Whisper White panel measures 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″.

The cow is stamped in Memento Black ink and colored with Basic Black light Blends, Smoky Slate Dark Blend and Real Red Dark Blend.  The Moon is stamped in Memento Black ink and colored with Daffodil Delight Dark Blends.  The lines around the outside are hand drawn using the Basic Black marker.

If you haven’t gotten this set yet, grab it soon!  It’ll be gone on June 3rd when the new catalog goes live.

All Dressed Up

Hi!  Today I have a card for you using the gorgeous Best Dressed Designer Series Paper!

The prints in this paper make it so easy to pull together cards that are just stunning.  For this card, the paper is paired with the Peaceful Moments stamp set and the retiring Delicate Lace Dies and Stitched Labels Dies.  These die sets add the perfect touch to this card.

The sentiment is stamped in Lovely Lipstick.

For this second card,

the sentiment is from the Seriously the Best stamp set.

Both cards were made using 1 6×6″ piece of Designer Series Paper.  The first card uses a piece that is 2″ x 5 1/4″, while the second uses a piece that is 4″ x 5 1/4″.  This leaves a single strip measuring 3/4″ x 6″ that could be used on the inside of either card.

Teresa’s Top 10

Hi!  Today I am sharing with you my Top 10 Retiring Products!  These products are found in either the Annual Catalog or the Occasions Mini Catalog.

#1.  Kindness and Compassion Stamp Set -This is the perfect set to thank those who comfort us in our time of sorrow.  It also has a sentiment or two to use for those sympathy cards that are so hard to make.

#2  Honey Bee Bundle – Such a fun bundle and just a little different than the flower sets that we all have so many of.   From the cute and whimsical to the elegant – so many different looks from one bundle.

#3 3D Embossing Folder Plate – Get more use out of your current Big Shot by getting this Embossing Folder Plate!  This plate will allow you to use the new Embossing Folders with your current die cutting machine.

#4 Beautiful You – This is the stamp set for celebrating those special females in your life – fun images to color and sentiments to match.

#5 Crackle Paint – Love this stamp set for backgrounds!  From tree bark to paint to just a little bit of texture – a must have!

 

 

 

 

#6 1/2″ and 1″ Circle Punches – Yes, I love my dies, but nothing beats the quickness of using a punch.

#7 Welcome Easter – This little animals are perfect not just for Easter, but for welcoming babies, baby showers or just because.  Don’t pass them by.

#8 Flourishing Phrases – I love this stamp set – the fonts are gorgeous and the flourish is perfect on its own or as a background.

#9 Varied Vases -Love this set and the sentiments to match.  Looking for a set that can be used for many occasions?  This is it.

#10 – Whisper White Baker’s Twine – I cannot believe this is retiring.  I LOVE twine – it is perfect for so many things- balloon strings and especially masculine cards where ribbon is too girly.  This one makes me sad.

There you have it – my 10 must haves before they are gone for good.  You will find all of these in my on-line store – just click on any product below to get you there.

Ornate Thanks

Hi!  Today I am playing along with Kylie’s International Blog Highlights!  I had so much fun last month and decided to play along this month.

Our theme is once again Thanks.  With everything going on in the world today, it is extremely important that we show appreciation to those around us.

  Thanks, Oranate Garden, #2020AnnualCatalog, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #internationalbloghighlights

I first shared this style of fold back in August 2018.  I hadn’t used it since, and decided that this new suite (available now and debuting in the 2020 Annual Catalog) was perfect!

I love the Designer Series Paper and felt it made the perfect background for my card.   The flower is stamped with Early Espresso ink and colored with So Saffron and Old Olive markers.  The sentiment is stamped in Terracotta Tile ink.

The cardstock dimensions are:

  • Base:  Terracotta Tile – 4 1/4″ x 11″
  • Base Layers:
    • Early Espresso – 4″ x 5 1/4″ – need 2 (one for the front and one for the back)
    • Whisper White – 4″ x 5 1/4″ – (for the back)
    • Designer Series Paper – 4″ x 5 1/4″
    • Early Espresso – 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
  • Pop-out: Early Espresso – 2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″
  • Pop-out Layers –
    • Terracotta Tile –  2 1/2″ x 3 1/4″
    • Whisper White – 2 1/4″ x 3″
  • Scraps for second part of sentiment and flowers

For the Base, score the 4 1/4″ x  11″ at 1/2″, 2″, 4″ and 5 1/2″

For the Pop-out, score the  2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ at 1/2″ and 2″ on the 5 1/2″ side

Here is the video (it is the second card) on how to put it all together.

Our theme is: Thanks!

Thanks, Honey Bee, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020Occasions, #InternationalBlogHop

I love the Honey Bee Suite in the Occasions Catalog and decided to use that for today’s Thanks card.   The Striped Designer Series Paper is from the Golden Honey DSP pack.  The hive is stamped in Crushed Curry ink.  The bees are stamped in Jet Black StaZon and colored with the Crushed Curry marker.  I used markers direct to stamp to color the flower – Old Olive for the leaves and Highland Heather for the flower.

The tag is made using the Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  The sentiment is from the Beauty Abounds stamp set.  Daffodil Delight ribbon finish it off.

I hope you enjoyed my card.  Make sure to hop on over to the rest of this month’s winners to see what they have created for you.

Hello Poppies

Hi!  Today I am sharing the Poppy version of my Triple Cut card shared in February.

TriCut, DSP, Hello, Friend, Poppies, Painted Poppies, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020Occasions

I truly love this color combination and think it is very striking.    I also love the tri-cut background layer.  So fun and so easy to do!

For this series, I used Poppy Parade cardstock, Pool Party cardstock (embossed with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder) and the Painted Poppies Designer Series Paper.   Each piece starts out 4″ x 5 1/2″.  Stack all three together and make 2 diagonal cuts any way you want.  Then mix and match the pieces to get three cards:

Hello, Friend, TriCuts, DSP, Poppies, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020Occasions

The stamped image is from the Painted Poppies Stamp set.  This is stamped in Jet Black StaZon and colored with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender pen.  The sentiment is from the Timeless Tulips stamp set.

The image is die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies.

If you are looking for a quick layout, I hope you give this one a try!

Feel Good Wishes

Hi!  Today I am back with another Positive Thoughts card for you.

Positive Thoughts, Friend, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020Occasions

Have I said how much I LOVE this stamp set and coordinating dies?   Truly, this is an awesome set and the fact that there are dies available (but ONLY until March 31st) makes the combination even better!

For this card, I stayed with my Neutrals and Pool Party combination (yes, I love this color combo as much I love this bundle!)  I incorporated the Scripty Embossing Folder and lightly sponged Crumb Cake ink over it to add to the texture.

The sentiment is die cut using Rectangled Stitched dies.   All the remaining pieces are cut using dies from the coordinating die set called Nature’s Thoughts.

Here is relatively the same layout, just rotated 90 degrees:
