For the Graduate

Hi!  It is hard for me to believe that my oldest is graduating in a few short weeks from High School.  I’ve been busy working on her invitations but took a little break yesterday to make a graduation card featuring her school colors.  I LOVE it!!

Graduation, Punch Art, Large Numbers, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Beautiful Bouquet

I had seen the Impossible Fold card created by Dawn Griffith and thought it would be perfect for a graduation card.  I must say, I am sorry to see the Large Number dies and stamp set retiring this month.  If you do not have these (at least the dies) add them to your list! Better yet – get them here now!    They are great not only for graduation, but birthday, anniversary, and even New Years cards.  They are also great for scrapbooking layouts.

For this card, I used Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Basic Black and Whisper White for my color scheme.  The “1” is a piece of printer paper rolled up and tied with retired Cherry Cobbler baker’s twine.  The sentiment is from Beautiful Boutique and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler.  The Graduation hat is made using Basic Black cardstock.   I hope her friends will like them!

Tune in to my Tuesday’s with Teresa Facebook Live on May 8 at 7:30pm EST to see just how to make this fun card!

Butterflies Fly Away

Hi! Today I am showcasing the Butterfly Basics stamp set that is retiring at the end of May.  This is such a pretty set!  For both cards, I stuck with Island Indigo, Soft Sky and Chocolate Chip for my color palette.

Butterflies, Butterfly Basics, Bold Butterflies, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For this card, I did stamp off for the Island Indigo stripe on the left as well as the leaves stamped in Soft Sky.  I also did generational stamping for the leaves – ie, I stamped the leaves twice before reinking the stamp.   Linen thread was wrapped around the hand 3 times, then twisted into a figure 8 before being adhered to the back of the butterfly.  I love the layered look of the butterfly.  A few rhinestones down the center finishes it off.

The dimensions for the card stock are:   Soft Sky base – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  Chocolate Chip mat – 4″ x 5 1/4″.  Whisper White layer – 3 3/4″ x 5″.

I also made this card using the same color palette and stamp set:

Butterflies, Butterfly Basics, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For this card, I used a large post-it note to create a mask for the stamped panel.  I sponged Soft Sky along the left hand edge and then inked the leaves in Soft Sky, stamping off once, before stamping over the sponged area.  After stamping was complete, I removed the post-it note pad.   The butterflies were created in the same manner as in the first card.   To add interest to this card, I added two thin strips of Chocolate Chip cardstock behind the main panel in a diagonal fashion.

The dimensions for this card are: Base – Thick Whisper White – 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″.  Chocolate Chip mat – 4″ x 5 1/4″. Whisper White mat – 3 13/16″ x 5 1/16.   Chocolate Chip strips – 3/16″ x 4 1/4″ (trim off the ends that overhang the panel).  Chocolate Chip mat – 3 7/16″ x 4 11/16.  Whisper White panel – 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″.

Here is the video from the Tuesday’s with Teresa Facebook Live showing a demonstration of these two cards:

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!

Don’t forget the retired lists are out and some items have already sold out!  Get those orders in before you lose out!   There is also a color revamp happening and 13 current colors are retiring!  Get those reinkers and card stock soon!  Here’s  a list of the current retiring colors:

Blossoming Basket

Hi!  How are you today?  I hope doing well!  First, I want to say THANK YOU!! to all those that voted for my Wedding Wishes card for Kylie’s International Blog Highlights.  I made the Top 10!!  I’ll be hopping with the rest of the Top 10 in the beginning of April – so stay tuned!

On to today’s card.  This card features the Blossoming Basket Bundle that is FREE with a $100 (US, prior to S/H and tax) purchase during Sale-A-Bration.  We are down to our FINAL week – so hurry and get those orders placed so you don’t miss out on FREE goodies!

Mother's Day, Flowers, Blossoming Basket, 2018SAB, Stampin' Up!, SU!

This would make a beautiful Mother’s Day card.  Went a little different by stamping my basket on Crumb Cake card  stock and just coloring the flowers and leaves.  I used the Berry Burst and Powder Pink 2017-2019 In Color markers for the Flowers and Old Olive for the leaves.  The basket and sentiment were stamped in Basic Black Archival ink.

The Basket Weave Embossing Folder was used on Whisper White card stock for the background.  The stamp set and embossing folder are bundled together in this FREE product choice.

I did use retired baker’s twine for an accent behind the stamped panel – but Basic Black twine which is current would look just as pretty.

I added a pearl to my sentiment panel and used the Triple Banner Punch to add interest to the opposite end.

The base  of the card is Crumb Cake and a layer of Berry Burst card stock is adhered on top of that.  A relatively straight forward card with just a few special touches for that someone special.

Just a few reminders – now is a great time to stock up on the 2016-2018 In Colors as they will be retiring at the end of May and if you stock up now, you also get to take advantage of Sale-A-Bration!

Petal Palette Clean & Simple

Hi!  How are you?  I hope you are doing well!  Sorry for not posting for a few days – ended up out of town for a business trip and wasn’t able to get a post written before I left.

Today I have a clean and simple card featuring the Petal Palette stamp set in the Occasions Catalog.

Thank You, Thanks, Petal Palette, Stampni' Up!, SU!, 2018Occasions

I love the clean look of this card!  I typically struggle with CAS (Clean and Simple) cards, but am very happy with how this one turned out.  The flowers are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  The leaves are colored with the Old Olive Duo Pack and the flowers with Pink Pirouette and Cherry Cobbler Dark Blends.  I love that you can see just a hint of the Pink Pirouette in the flower petals.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark on Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.  I used a small scrap of Berry Burst card stock punched with the Ribbon punch to tuck underneath.  A few Rose Red Regal Enamel shapes to accent the sentiment and there you have it.

For the layers, Thick Whisper White is used for the base and is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  A Basic Black layer 5 1/4″ x 4″ is adhered to the base while the stamped  panel is Whisper White cardstock measuring 5″ x 3 3/4″.

An easy enough card to mass produce if you are in need of quite a few.   Change out the sentiment to make it a Birthday or Congratulations card!

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!

What do you think?  Are you liking the different looks you can get with this fun paper?  If so, then don’t forget to place a qualifying $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) so you can choose this for FREE!  Or you can choose Epic Celebrations which is also a FREE product choice during Sale-A-Bration!  Just a reminder, you can choose one FREE item for each $50 you spend!

Waterfront Ice

Hi!  This morning I have a card featuring the Black Ice Technique that was developed by Melissa Kerman.  This is such a cool technique – I just love the results!

Black Ice, Waterfront, Masculine, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Embossing, Black and White, Occasions2018

It is a little hard to capture in pictures, but in real life, it looks like there is are thin lines of ice running down the picture.

For my card, I used the Waterfront stamp set in the Occasions Catalog.  I LOVE this set!!!  If you get nothing else from the Occasions catalog, get this set!  It is perfect for so many occasions.

Here are the steps for doing the black ice technique:

  1. Drag Basic Black Archival Ink Pad down the Silver Foil card stock – try and keep it straight to get black lines running down the card stock.
  2. Stamp your images in Basic Black Archival ink – the foil is slippery – so be careful when stamping to not have it slide.  Use a Piercing Mat under the foil to help with getting a crisp image.
  3. Let DRY!!  (You can use a heat gun to step up this process – but you want it dry!
  4. Drag the Versarmark Ink Pad down over the entire image (similar motion to what you did with the the Basic Black Archival).  Do not press down too hard – a light touch is preferred here.
  5. Sprinkle Clear Embossing Powder over the entire image.  Tap off excess.
  6. Heat set.

That is all there is to it!

Here are the dimensions for my layers:

  • Base: Basic Black – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
  • Whisper White – 4″ x 5 1/4″ – Drag the Basic Black Archival Pad down this layer as well
  • Basic Black – 3 5/8 x 4 5/8″
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 1/2″
  • Silver Foil – 3 1/4 x 3 1/4″

I left room at the bottom for my sentiment.  I added the Basic Black Shimmery Ribbon beneath the Silver foil.

Such a cool look!

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!

Ombre Foils

Hi!  Hard to believe this is the last day of February!  That means there is only one month left to take advantage of all that Sale-A-Bration has to offer!  Yikes!  So many awesome products you can earn for FREE!!

Today I have a card featuring the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper that was released as a Sale-A-Bration product on Feb 16th.  This paper is just gorgeous on its own – but I decided to show what else you could do with it in today’s card.

Brayer, Ombre, 2018SAB, Springtime Foils, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For today’s card, I used one of the foam brayers to make an Ombre look on this paper.  Starting at the top of the foil paper, I applied Night of Navy ink using the brayer.   More ink was brayered at the top of the foil paper and less ink near the bottom to give it the Ombre look.  After applying the ink, use a paper towel to remove the ink over the foil pattern.   The foil Designer Series Paper is layered on a Night of Navy mat.

The flower is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set and is colored with Pink Pirouette, Old Olive and Night of Navy markers.  This was punched out with the 1 3/4″ circle punch and layered on a 2″ Night of Navy circle punch.  The Silver Trimmed ribbon was wrapped around the foil DSP.

The base is Thick Whisper White card stock.

This paper is one of the FREE products you can choose with a $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) order.  I highly recommend it – it is so pretty and adds an elegant look to cards and projects.
