Beautiful Journey

Hi!  Today I have a quick card using the World of Good Suite from the Annual Catalog.

Journey, Masculine, World Of Good, Stampin' Up!, SU!

The World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper is paired with the Old World Paper Embossing Folder to create the background for this card.  I love the dimension the embossing folder gives to our Whisper White Cardstock.

The sentiment is stamped in Misty Moonlight ink and die cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  The ink bottle is stamped in Jet Black StaZon and the feather in Crumb Cake.  Both are die cut with the coordinating die set.

The base is Early Espresso.

This is a great set for those masculine cards we sometimes struggle with.

Don’t forget, the new Standard Stampin’ Cut and Emboss has made its debut in my on-line store:

Do You Love Fall?

I do!!  (I’m sure you know that by now!).  Anyway, today I have two cards for you – though they are made together using the 2 for 1, or Split Card or ….  not really sure what it is called …  technique.

Fall, Hello, Friendship, Forever Fern, Stampin' Up!, SU!, 2for1, Split Card, #2020AnnualCatalog

I had seen this technique a while ago but didn’t have a chance to try it out until a few weeks ago when getting ready for my Facebook Live.  The gist of the technique, take a larger sheet of cardstock – for this I used 6 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ sheet of Whisper White – then stamp up the middle.  Cut the card in half at 3 1/4″ and you have 2 card fronts!

I decided to do this with the Emboss Resist technique – so I stamped the leaves from the Forever Fern bundle in Versamark and Embossed with Whisper White Embossing powder.  I then sponged Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze inks – wiping off the ink over the embossed leaves after each color.  The final step was to stamp the flowers, smaller leaves and splatter stamps in Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry.   The sentiments are stamped in Cajun Craze.

Emboss Resist, Fall, Friendship, SplitCard, 2for1, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog

I matted the stamped panels on Early Espresso measuring 3 3/8″ x 4 5/8″.  I tied Early Espresso Faux Suede Ribbon and Copper Ribbon together around this layer.

The Cajun Craze mat layer is embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  The base is Thick Whisper White Card Stock measuring 4 1/4 x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and folded in half.

I love how these cards turned out!  If you are looking for a quick technique for mass producing, try this 2-For-1 layout – you can just use stamps and inks – no need to Emboss Resist if time is an issue.

Here’s a look at the second card:

Emboss Resist, 2for1, SplitCard, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Forever Fern, Hello, Friendship, #2020AnnualCatalog

Here’s a video showing how the cards were made:

I hope you’ll give this technique a try!

Country Charm

Hi!  I’m back today with a card featuring the Country Home Stamp Set.  I love this set – it has such a charming feel to it.

Hello, Friendship, Country Home, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog

For my colors, I went with Flirty Flamingo and Basic Gray.  The milk jug was stamped on a piece of Designer Series Paper from the In Good Taste pack then fussy cut with scissors.  The flowers were stamped with Jet Black StaZon ink and colored with Watercolor Pencils on the Whisper White layer.  The jug was then adhered to the Whisper White layer.  This is matted on Basic Gray cardstock.

For the background, I inked the Tin Tile Embossing Folder with Flirty Flamingo ink then placed a piece of Whisper White cardstock in the folder.  This is then run through the new Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine.

The card base is Basic Gray – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ then folded in half.  A piece of Flirty Flamingo is used as a mat for the Tin Tile embossed strip and piece of Whisper White.  The main stamped image is adhered using dimensionals.

With fall right around the corner, this is a perfect card to send a friend or family member to say Hello.

As mentioned above, the new Stampin’ Cut and Emboss – standard size – is now available in my On-line store.  If you are looking for a new die cut machine or for your first check it out!

The colors for this card are Gray Granite, Terracotta Tile and Pear Pizzazz.  The stamp set is Rooted in Nature and the sentiment is from Free As a Bird.  I embossed the panel with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder after stamping the leaves on it.

Because Adulting Is Hard

Hi!   Today I have a fun card using the Nothing’s Better Than bundle in the Annual Catalog.  Such a fun bundle if you haven’t checked it out yet.

Cocktails, Friends, Humor, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Nothings Better Than, #2020AnnualCatalog

Love this sentiment – and oh, at times so true!  This little cocktail is so easy to stamp with the 2-step Photopolymer set.  I went with bright and cheery – using Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight for my colors.  I decided to punch circles to host my focal point of the glass.  The sentiment in the lower right was creating using the new Banners Pick-A-Punch in the August-December mini catalog.   The Subtle Texture Embossing Folder was used on the 3 7/8 x 5 1/8″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  Basic Black measuring 4 1/16″ x 5 5/16″ is a mat for Whisper White and the base is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ and folded in half.

I have a few friends that I think would get a kick out of receiving this card – how about you?

We are winding down the month of August and thus the end of August Bonus Day Redemptions – make sure you use those coupons earned in July!  Also, for those who live in Massachusetts, this weekend is Tax Free weekend – and everything in the Stampin’ Up! catalog qualifies for Tax Free!

Hello Sunshine!

Hi!  Happy Monday!!  I had so much fun Friday night at the Mystery Stamp night and decided to start the week with the card layout I used.  Huge thanks to Kim Quade at Kim Plays with Paper for the inspiration.

Fun Fold, Hello, Under My Umbrella, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog, #2020InColor, #MysteryStamping

Isn’t this a fun layout!  The stamped image is a flap and a layer behind to write your message!   For this card, I used the Under My Umbrella stamp set.  The images were stamped in Memento Black ink and colored with Stampin Blends – Real Red, So Saffron, Seaside Spray and Old Olive.  The sentiment is stamped in the new Misty Moonlight In Color ink.  I used the Stitched Shapes and Layering Circles for the sentiment.    A piece of Misty Moonlight In Color Twill Ribbon finishes it off.

The Designer Series Paper is from the Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper pack.

Here are the dimensions:

  • Base – Misty Moonlight – 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
  • Designer Series Paper – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Flap – Misty Moonlight – 3″ x 8 1/2″ – score at 4 1/4″
  • Image Panel – Whisper White – 2 3/4″ x 4″ (need 2 – one for the inside)

Assembly:

  • Attach Designer Series Paper to the base
  • Attach the Flap to the Designer Series Paper (centered would be 1 1/4″ from each end)
  • Attach the Image panel to the top of the flap
  • Attach the second panel to the inside

If you wanted to save on Designer Series Paper – you could cut two strips that are 1 1/8″ x 4″ to place on each side of the flap once attached to the base.

I have so many fun ideas for this layout – I can’t wait to try them out!

I host Mystery Stamping Zoom Meetings the 3rd Friday of the month – I hope you will consider joining me in September!

A Saturday Smile

Hi!  How are you today?  Any fun plans for the weekend?  Not sure what’s on my plate this weekend – probably a little cleaning, gardening and hopefully some crafting.     Hopefully this bright and cheery card will bring a smile to your face on this sunny Saturday morning.

Smile, Flowers, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog, Lovely You

I went with the Brights Color Family for this card with Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Coastal Cabana.   The images are stamped marandomly in the lower right corner of Whisper White cardstock.  A 1 1/4″ circle is stamped with flowers and layered behind the sentiment which is heat embossed in White Embossing powder on Basic Black cardstock.  I love the popped look of the sentiment.

The base of the card is Thick Whisper White cardstock – measuring 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and folded.  A piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock measuring 4 1/16″ x 5 5/16″ is layered behind the stamped panel.  All images are from the Lovely You stamp set and the sentiment is punched with the coordinating Lovely Labels Pick-A-Punch.  I highly recommend the bundle – but if nothing else – get the punch – you’ll be glad you did!  The punch has two different styles and each style has 3 different options based on the width of the cardstock – 1/2″, 3/4″, and 1″.  A must have for all papercrafters.

Enjoy your Saturday and thanks for stopping in!

At The Seashore

Hi!  Decided since it was still summer, I should focus on the present and made this card using the Seaside Notions stamp set.

Smile, Friendship, Seaside Notions, Block Watercoloring, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog

I do love walking on the beach looking for shells so couldn’t resist this stamp set.  The background is made by applying ink to a clear block – in this case, Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry then spritzing with water and laying the block on the Whisper White background.  Let it dry completely.

For the Seahorse, I used Bermuda Bay and Balmy Blue watercolor pencils and a Blender Pen.  The shells are a mix of Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Cherry Cobbler watercolor pencils and a blender pen.  Each of the three elements were fussy cut with Paper Snips.   I added a bit of dazzle to the Seahorse using the Wink of Stella Clear brush:

Glitter, Friendship, Wink of Stella, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I thought it was a nice touch for that sparkly water look.

The sentiment is from Lovely You.

I hope you enjoyed this little trip to the beach today!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Monday

Hi!  Here’s to Monday – the start of a new day where anything can happen.  Last month I held my first Mystery Stamp night, and boy was it fun!  How does it work?  A few days before the event, I post a supply list of the materials that you will need – from card stock, type of stamp set, how many ink colors, embellishments, etc.   Then, during the Zoom meeting – yes, it is a live event through Zoom, I give you step by step directions to make the project.  In the end, we share our cards.   Here is mine:

Forever Fern, Hello, Friendship, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog, #2020InColors

A panel card – where your stamped pieces are first stamped all as one piece and then cut apart.  The images are from Forever Fern.  For this card, I used the new Misty Moonlight and BumbleBee In Colors paired with the ever faithful Old Olive.  The sentiment was punched with the Lovely Labels Pick a punch.

I’ll be hosting another Mystery Stamp night this Friday and I’ll be posting the supply list on Wednesday.  The event is posted on my Facebook page.  However, if you aren’t on Facebook and you’d like to participate, please send me an email at teresasstampinspot@gmail.com and I’ll be happy to email you the supply list and Zoom meeting link later this week.

Thanks for stopping by!
