Sunset Jungle

Hi!  Back today with another card featuring the adorable Animal Outing bundle.

Animal Outing, Birthday, Sponging, Masking, Stampin' Up!, SU!The sunset is created by placing a template that had a circle die cut out of it over a Whisper White panel that measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4″.   I sponged Pineapple Punch and Grapefruit Grove for my sun.

The Rhino and Giraffe were stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and die cut using the coordinating framelits.  Stampin’ Blends were used to color the animals – Smoky Slate both light and dark, Calypso Coral ligh and Pool Party light were used for the Rhino and bird while Daffodil Delight light and Crumb Cake light were used for the Giraffe.

The sentiment stamps are from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink on Old Olive card stock.  This is then punched using the Classic Label punch.

The Whisper White panel is matted by a Basic Black panel measuring 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″.  The base is Thick Whisper White measuring 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ and folded.

Birthday, Love What You Do, Share What You Love, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2018AnnualCatalog

I also shared how to make this card in May 22nd’s Tuesday With Teresa on my Facebook page.  Here’s the video – it is the first card:

This is a tri-fold card – thus why the front looks a little off in the picture above.  Here is the card open:

I love different fold cards – they add a little something more to the card.  This card will still fit in an A2 envelope.

Here are the dimensions and scoring for the card:

  • Base – 4 1/4 x 11″ – score at 3 3/4″ and 8 3/4″ on the 11″ side
  • Inside Panel – 4 3/4″ x 4″
  • Front Left Panel – 3 1/2″ x 4″
  • Front Right Panel – 2″ x 4″

To finish off this card, I stamped Happy Birthday from the Perennial Birthday stamp set and flowers and leaves from the Love What You Do stamp set.   This is punched out with the 1 3/4″ circle punch and layered on a 2″ circle punch.   This is then attached to a Pearlized doily.   The doily is attached to just the right front panel.

The leaves on the inside are stamped in Tranquil Tide.

This product suite is sure to be a favorite in any stampers’ collection.  While you will be able to order the products in the bundles separately starting June 1, you can order the bundle and get FREE product when ordered by May 31st.

Love It, Chop It

Hi!  Today I am sharing my creations using the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  If you Love your Designer Series Paper, Chop It – so you can use it!

#loveitchopit, Daisies, Delight Daisy, Daisy Delight, Designer Series Paper, DSP, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I LOVE this paper!  It is so pretty and really doesn’t need much more added to it.  I shared these quick and easy cards with those who qualified for the Sale-A-Bration Celebration party this past month.  They were each given 4 4″ x 5 1/4″ pieces of Designer Series Paper, 2 sheets of solid color card stock coordinating with the paper and 1 sheet of Whisper White card stock to make their own versions.

For this set, Calypso Coral is the base for the card stock.  On two of the card Tranquil Tide is used as a mat behind the sentiment.  Given the prettiness of the paper, the other purpose was to showcase larger sentiments.  The Happy Birthday is a single stamp in the catalog.  Thanks Kindly is from One Big Meaning and hello is from  Hello, Friend stamp set.

I also used the coordinating Daisy Delight stamp set on two of the cards.  In both instances, the daisies were stamped in Smoky Slate ink and punched with the coordinating punch.  The centers are circles punched from Tranquil Tide card stock.  A touch of ribbon and linen thread finished off the two outside cards.

Here’s a closer look at a few of the cards:

#loveitchopit, DSP, Delightful Daisy, Happy Birthday, Stampin' Up!, SU!

#loveitchopit, Hello, Hello Friend, Stampin' Up!, DSP, Delightful Daisy, SU!  I am having quite a bit of fun using up Designer Series Paper – it feels good to use it up!  New papers will be coming out soon – and this is a great time to finish up paper and make room for new!!

I hope this inspires you to #loveitchopit and use that gorgeous patterned paper in your stash!

Wood Textures- A Masculine Look

Hi! Today I have a card for you featuring the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper stack.  I LOVE this pack of paper – and find it works for all kinds of cards.  Today I have a masculine card for you.

Wood Textures, Masculine, Birthday, Stampin' Up!, SU!

If you have quite a few Designer Series scraps, this is a great layout to use some of those up!  I created a block layout using 4 different patterns from the stack.  Here are the measurements for each:

  • Upper left -3″ x 2 1/4″
  • Lower left – 3″ x 1 1/2″
  • Upper right – 2″ x 1 3/4″
  • Lower right – 2″ x 2″

These are mounted on a piece of Early Espresso card stock measuring 5 1/4″ x 4″.

I die cut Happy Birthday in both Early Espresso and Whisper White.  I love the “shadow” look obtained by adhering the Whisper White just a little over to the right of the Early Espresso die cut.  The finishing touch is a button from the True Gentleman suite with a small piece of linen thread tied through the holes.

The base of the card is Whisper White thick card stock cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″and scored at 4 1/4″.

I demonstrated how to make this card on this past Tuesday’s session of Tuesday’s with Teresa on my Facebook page.  Look for the video marked – Tuesday’s with Teresa – Wood Texture & Wood Words.

I’ll be back with a different look for the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper in a day or so.

In the meantime, don’t forget that the 2016-2018 In Colors will be retiring soon!  Once the retirement list comes out, these products tend to sell out quickly.  Avoid the rush, and place your order today in my On-Line Store!  Use Hostess Code: WZ627AK3 for orders less than $150 and get a FREE little something from me!

For the Boys…

and for the Girls!

Hi!  Today I am continuing with the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper that you can earn FREE with a $50 purchase (US, prior to S/H and tax) during Sale-A-Bration which ends this month!!   Don’t miss out!!!  Place an order NOW to get your FREE goodies!  Just click the Shop Now button to your right!

I have two cards today, first up… for the boys!

Boys, Teens, Epic Celebrations, 2018Sale-A-Bration, 2018Occasions, Brushos, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For this card, I spritzed the Copper dotted Springtime Foil sheet with water and sprinkled on Brilliant Blue and Yellow Brushos then spritzed again to mix the colors to create my background.   These Crystal Colours are so much fun to play with – and if you like to paint – I highly recommend adding them to your collection.  You can find them here.

For the sneakers, I combined the same two colors in  a little paint palette and added a little water from an AquaPainter to mix the two colors together.  The sneakers are embossed in White Embossing Powder on Whisper White cardstock, then painted with the brusho colors.  These were then cut out by hand and popped up on a Basic Black 2″ circle.  This is layered on a piece of Copper Foil punched with the Starburst punch.  The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black Archival ink and punched out with a 1 1/2″ circle punch.

The base of the card is Thick Whisper White cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.  A piece of Basic Black cardstock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″ is matted behind the Springtime Foil piece which measures 3 3/4″ x 5″.

This same design and layout can also be turned into a card for girls by changing up the Brusho colours!

Girls, Teens, Brushos, Epic Celebration, 2018SaleABration, 2018Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!The same technique, punches and layers used for the boys are used here.  The only difference, the Brusho colors.  For the background piece, I sprinkled Brilliant Blue, Brilliant Red and Yellow brushos.  For the sneakers, I mixed Brilliant Blue and Brilliant Red to create my purple.

Two great cards that can be used to celebrate a birthday or even graduation!

A Two Pointer

Hi!  I recently came across this fold by Lisa Curcio and had to try it!  It is so easy to do and is a great way to use some of our gorgeous Designer Series Paper!

Fancy Fold, Double Point Fold, Thank You, Birthday, Cards, Sweet Cupcakes, Petal Pallete, DSP, InColors2017, Stampin' Up!, SU!

It is called the Double Point fold!  Isn’t it fun!   It uses 2 pieces of Designer Series Paper measuring 4″ x 3″.  A great way to use up some of your Designer Paper.     Here is what you do:

  1. Score at 1″ along the 3″ side.
  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 Whisper White card stock.
  5. Attach the Whisper 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.  For the cupcakes –  I used 3 dimensionals; for the bird, I could only use one.  Details on the actual cards below.

Here is a link to Lisa’s video if you’d like a visual.

For the cupcakes, I used the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper stack.  My base colors are Lemon-Lime Twist and Berry Burst.  The colors for the “vanilla” cupcake are:  Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and So Saffron (in that order for the stamps labeled 1, 2, and 3).   I did stamp off the Crumb Cake and Sahara Sand stamps once before stamping on my paper.  I am very happy with how my cupcake turned out.

For the Lemon-Lime Twist card, I used Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist for the two colors (in that order for stamps labeled 1 and 2).  For Berry Burst, I used Berry Burst and Powder Pink in that order.   After they dried, I went over the “frosting” with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen.

Birthday, Cupcake, Sweet Cupcake, Double Point Fold, Fancy Fold, Stampin' Up!, SU!

It sparkles more in real life than I could capture in my picture.   The sentiment is from the You Are Inspiring stamp set in the Occasions Catalog and punched out with the Duo Banner punch.   I did attach the frosting with dimensionals to the cupcake.   These were attached to a Berry Burst Lots of Labels die cut (the second largest die).

The bird is from the Petal Palette stamp set and is stamped in Memento Black ink and colored with the Daffodil Duo Blends.  Tranquil Tide is my base color and the Designer Series Paper is from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack.  The bird is punched out with the 2″ circle punch and is layered on a 2 1/4″ Tranquil Tide circle.

I taught this fold at a workshop last week and the attendees loved it!  I’ll be doing it again at the March Madness class I am hosting on March 9.  I think it’ll be a big hit!

We are in the last month of Sale-A-Bration!  If you have not yet taken advantage of all the Sale-A-Bration has to offer, now is the time!!  Shop my on-line store with Host Code: 9PSW36TE for a FREE tutorial featuring the Celebration Time stamp set!

Hedgie Hugs

Hi!  How are you today?  In need of a hug?  Well, I have just the card for you!

Hedgehogs, Hugs, Love, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Occasions2018

Aren’t these little guys adorable?  This is the new stamp set Hedgehugs in the Occasions Catalog.  How cute would this be for a Valentine’s card or to wish someone a Happy Birthday?

The base of my card is Crumb Cake and the little flowers were stamped with Crumb Cake ink.  The Hedgehogs were stamped in Soft Suede on Whisper White card stock.  I used the Early Espresso watercolor pencil to add some shading on his body and then blended it with a Blender Pen.  The little flower he’s holding was colored with a Real Red Marker.  The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede as well.  The flower is colored with Real Red and Old Olive markers and stamped next to the sentiment.  It was punched out with the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch and layered on a 1 3/4″ Soft Suede Circle.  I added a thin strip of Burlap Ribbon to finish him off.

What do you think?  Could you use a hug?  If so, email me your address at: teresa.howe@verizon.net and I’ll send you a hedgie hug!
