Snow is Glistening

Hi!  We had our first snowfall of the season the other day (had to shovel as well) so why not share a card or two made from the Snow Is Glistening set.  The Snowflake Showcase featuring these products ends on Nov 30 – so order today!

Snow is Glistening, Winter, Christmas, Stampin' Up!, SU!For this card, I sponged the background using Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather inks.  The Snowflakes are die cut from Whisper White card stock and adhered with adhesive.  The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy on a scrap of Whisper White  and the ends punched with the Triple Banner Bunch.

I didn’t have any Night of Navy ribbon, so I colored the Whisper White with Silver trim using the Dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends – so quick and easy to do!   The final touch is a Snowflake Trinket.

Here is another version of the card – but this time I used the Inset Embossing Technique after adhered the snowflakes:

Snow is Glistening, Inset Embossing, Winter, Christmas, Stampin' Up!, SU!

A little hard to see the difference – here’s a closer view:

By running the card stock with the snowflakes attached through the Big Shot with the Subtle Embossing Folder, it looks like the snowflakes are now part of the paper – not just on top of it.

You can see how I did this in this video:

Pretty cool, don’t you think?

Card stock dimensions for both cards:

  • Whisper White Thick Base: 4 1/4″ x 11″
  • Night of Navy Mat – 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
  • Whisper White Image Panel – 3 3/4″ x 5″
  • Whisper White Sentiment – 3 3/4″ x 1″

Anyway – don’t delay in getting your Snowflake Showcase products – (the Velvet Paper in this flyer is already sold out – but all the other goodies are still available! )

Painted Harvest with a Twist

Hi!  Today I have a fun card using the Painted Harvest Stamp set.   This is the second card I demonstrated during this week’s Tuesday with Teresa Facebook Live.

Thanks, Painted Harvest, Fancy Fold, Fun Fold, Stampin' Up!, SU!

First twist – I changed up the color of the flowers from the typical yellow sunflowers.  I love this color combination of Balmy Blue and Pacific Point. So pretty!

I saw this Side Board card by Deb Valder and knew it would be fun to make.

This card is the second card in this video:

Here is the PDF the dimensions for each of the pieces.

Fun With Paper Pumpkin

Hi!  Today I have an alternative project for the July 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit!  Thanks to Nancy for the idea that you’ll find here.

I love how these turned out!

Paper Pumpkin, July 2018, Stampin' Up!, SU!

The kit makes 3×3 note cards – which are very cute – but I don’t typically use that size, so I took my supplies and am making Post-It Note holders that would be sure to brighten anyone’s desk!

Here are the directions:

  • Base:  Cut a piece of cardstock 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and score at 2″, 4″ and 4 1/2″
  • Easel Front: Piece of Whisper White cardstock 3 1/2″ x 4″
  • Plaid backgrounds – Cut the tissue paper from the kit 3 1/2″ x 4″ – need 2
  • Cut the 3×3 note cards in half (need 1 per holder)

Fold on all score lines for the base.  Use one of the plaid pieces and attach to the inside (where there are no folds).  Attach the second plaid piece to the 3 1/2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.   Attach this piece to the bottom only of the front of the base (the 3 1/2″ x 2″ fold section)  It is easiest to apply your adhesive to the front flap of the base so that you do not go above the score line.

Here is a side view of the holder so you can see how the easel looks and how the plaid panel is attached  at just the bottom:

July2018PP, Paper Pumpkin, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Post-It Note Holders

Use Tear and Tape and to adhere the 3″ x 3″ sticky pad to the inside of the base.

Stamp the border from the Paper Pumpkin stamp set in Soft Suede ink around all 4 sides of the Crumb Cake piece.  Adhere one of the Vellum plaid pieces to the top.  Adhere the fruit and leaf die-cuts.  Wrap ribbon around the panel.  Stamp a sentiment in Soft Suede ink to one of the Whisper White labels in the kit.  Attach with dimensionals.   Attach this entire panel to the plaid front piece using dimensionals.

Here is a front view:

Inky the Octopus

Hi!  Back today with the card that was demonstrated this past week on Tuesday with Teresa – my weekly Facebook Live demonstration.  This one features the Sea of Textures stamp set:

Octopus, Sea of Texture, Stampin' Up!, Masking

I used my big Post-It Notes to mask off the top and bottom of my Whisper White layer and sponge just the center with Mint Macaron and Coastal Cabana ink.  The seaweed and coral were stamped in Tranquil Tide ink.

The octopus is stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink and die cut with the coordinating framelit.  He is attached to the card using dimensionals.  A quick and cute card for your Saturday morning.

I Hear

Wedding Bells!  I saw a card by Lori Mueller using the bell in the Blended Seasons bundle as a wedding bell and thought “Genius!”    I love how versatile this bundle has turned out to be!  If you haven’t gotten it yet – now is the time as this bundle is only available until August 31st.  Order HERE!

Ok, so here is my wedding card:

Wedding, Blended Seasons, Stampin' Up!, SU!

What do you think?  For the bell, I colored with Stampin’ Blends Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight.   The Designer Series Paper on the left is from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.

I love the front cut on this card.  I started with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Rich Razzleberry Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2″ and then trimmed off 3″ from the front.  I turned this piece sideways and used it for a front flap.  Very cute, right?

The Basic Black mats measure 2 1/4″ x 4″ for the mat beneath the Designer Series Paper and 2 3/4″ x 4″ for the front flap.  The Designer Series Paper measures 2″ x 3 3/4″ and the Whisper White panel measures 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″.

I did include a piece of Whisper White for the inside of the card – this measures 4″ x 5 1/4″.  It helps frame the front panel as well.

Just a reminder that August 31 is also the last day to get your Watercolor Pencils Assortment #2.  You’ll find those here.

And, finally, August 31 also marks the end of the Bonus Day Coupon earning period.  For every $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) you spend, you get a $5 coupon to redeem in September.  There is NO LIMIT to the number of coupons you can earn!!

One of the Harder Ones

….in more ways than one.  Sympathy cards are very hard for me to make – it may just be the reason for needing one, but I do tend to struggle when making this type of card.   It will be a little harder yet with the retirement of the “Thoughts and Prayers” stamp set used to make this card.

Sympathy, Thoughts & Prayers, Starry Night, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Waterfront

I went with (or tried to anyway) a “starry night” sky using the Waterfront stamp set (think sand from that set).  This was stamped in Versamark and embossed with White Embossing powder.  I then sponged Crumb Cake and Old Olive ink on the bottom of the cardstock to represent the ground.  Three colors of ink were sponged for the sky – retiring colors Tempting Turquoise and Island Indigo with the final layer being Night of Navy.  I am pretty happy with how the colors blended – tho I think I could have used a few more “stars” in the top corners.

After creating the background, I stamped the tree in Basic Black Archival ink.   The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes – another set that is retiring and that I’ll miss.  This is punched out with the Classic Label punch.  A bit of Crumb Cake ink was sponged on this piece to   soften the look of the Whisper White.

What type of card do you struggle with making?

Don’t forget, today is the last day that the following retiring colors are guaranteed for ink pads and refills.  After today, these color products will be available “while supplies last”.    Card stock is already at “while supplies last”.

You’ll find all the supplies to make the above card in my on-line store.  Please consider using Hostess Code: 4CKMSHRT for orders less than $150.  (US, prior to S/H and tax).

A Few Feathers

Hi! How are you?  Today I am excited to share with you the trio of cards I made using the Feather Together stamp set from the Annual Catalog.

Masculine, Feathers, Thinking of You, Baby Wipes, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Hardwood

I just LOVE these!!  On Tuesday’s with Teresa Facebook Live, I demonstrated how to do the Baby Wipe technique and shared how to make the first and second cards in the picture above.  After the Live Demonstration, I had some feathers that I had stamped and was trying to figure out what to do with them when I came up with the third card.  All three cards use the same basic supplies and technique – but each have a little different look to them.

If you missed my Tuesday with Teresa demonstration,  here it is:

(If you’d like to enter the drawing mentioned in the video,  hop over to my Facebook page and leave a comment on the post featuring this video.)

Here’s a closer look at each card:

Feather Together, Baby Wipe, Hardwood, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For this card, the stamped feathers are attached to a Dapper Denim layer which is then scored and folded up over the bottom of the Whisper White.  I distressed the edge with my thumb nail then wrapped the Dapper Denim baker’s twine around the bottom and tied a knot.  The Smoky Slate mat is stamped with the Hardwood Stamp that was inked in Smoky Slate.  The base is Thick Whisper White cardstock.

Feather Together, Hardwood, Baby Wipe, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For this one, I just mounted the stamped panel on a Dapper Denim mat and wrapped the Baker’s Twine around three times.  The Hardwood is inked in Smoky Slate and stamped on Whisper White and my base is Smoky Slate.

Feather Together, Hardwood, Baby Wipe, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For the final card, I stamped the feathers on scrap Whisper White and fussy cut them out with Paper Snips.  The Hardwood is inked in Smoky Slate and stamped on Smoky Slate.  This is layered on Dapper Denim and the base is back to the Thick Whisper White.  The sentiment is also stamped from the Baby White to give it a variegated look to match the feather.

I am sad to see this  stamp set on the retiring list!  If you love these cards as much as I do, make sure you purchase it before it is gone for good!  Shop my on-line store with Hostess Code: WZ627AK3 by April 15th and get a FREE Tutorial featuring the Hold on to Hope Bundle!
