Sept 19th, 2020 Facebook Live Cards

 Hello friends and followers! Thanks for stopping by to check out the cards I made on my Facebook live last night over on Facebook. You can like that page as well if you wish to join the Live each Saturday night HERE


I decided to do 2 simple and easy Christmas cards featuring the Perfectly Plaid Stamp set and Heartwarming Hugs stamp sets, both paired with the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.  


Both of my card bases for my cards are Shaded Spruce, cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  My first layer on both cards is cut at 4" x 5 1/4".  


For my first card which I called the candy cane card the DSP is cut at 2" x 5 1/4" then cut at 1". I layered it on the whisper white layer at the top and bottom.  I then took a piece of the real red satin stitched ribbon and centered that between the DSP.  I used a label from the Celebration Labels dies and stamped Merry Christmas in Shaded Spruce in the center of the label.  Then I took the outline candy cane stamp from the Heartwarming hugs and stamped them around the label in Shaded Spruce ink as well. I then took the stripes and used Real Red ink and filled them in.  I used dimensionals to adhere the label to the whisper white label and added it to my card base. I finished it off with the gold enamel dots. 


For my second card I used a different pattern of the DSP from the Plaid Tidings DSP and cut it at 2 1/4" x 5 1/4" and adhered it to the lower part of my Cherry Cobbler layer.  I then used one of the trees from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and inked them with VersaMark and stamped them on Shaded Spruce cardstock scraps. I then used gold embossing powder and the heat tool gun to emboss them.  I punched them out using the tree punch.  I used the large oval from the Stitched Shape dies and stamped my sentiment in Cherry Cobbler. I used the gold trim from the Forever Greenery ribbon pack and added two strips to the DSP.  I used dimensionals on the three trees and lower part of my oval to adhere to my card.  To finish this card off I added 3 of the gold enamel dots to the oval. 


I hope these cards give you inspiration to want to start your Christmas cards! Please visit my online store to order any of the supplies I used in these cards to make your own!!

Paper Crafting Blog Hop September All About Punches

 


Hello and welcome to our August Monthly Blog Hop!  We thank you for joining us for our monthly blog hop this month.  Our theme this month is All About Punches,  highlighting all the punches we have in our Annual and Mini Catalog.  We have talented Independent Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world taking part this month to show you wonderful products and suites from our catalogs.  You may have joined me from Katie's blog and their project was wonderful.  

I have chosen to use the Tailored Tag punch from the Annual catalog for my punch of choice this month for my masculine birthday card. I feel this is such a versatile punch and can be used for so many sentiments and greetings in our catalogs. I used the stamp set Many Mates for this card. 

To start I punched out numerous pieces of a print of DSP from In Good Taste. You could use numerous patterns but I chose one piece of paper.  I punched way more than needed but wanted choices of patterns. I then laid them out on a layer of Mossy Meadow cardstock cut at 4" x 5 1/4" starting in the middle and working out. I didn't adhere anything at this point, I just lined them up how I wanted. I left a thin border of the green showing between each one. Once happy, I then used Tombow liquid glue to adhere them, again working out from the middle.  I trimmed the excess of once all were glued down.


I took the mossy meadow layer and added it to a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" piece of Soft Suede.  I then adhered that to my card base of crumb cake which is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4". I stamped the sentiment from Many Mates on Crumb Cake and punched it out with the punch as well. 


For my inside layer I used a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla and stamped my sentiment in Soft Suede. I took 3 more of my punched pieces of DSP and lined them on the bottom, and cut the excess off as well. And then adhered the layer to my card base.



I hope you have enjoyed hopping with us this month.  Below this you can click the image to go to Sandra's blog where another wonderful project awaits you!  Please join us next month as we feature all things fall in the two current catalogs.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop August All About Suites - Plaid Tidings Suite



Hello and welcome to our August Monthly Blog Hop!  We thank you for joining us for our monthly blog hop this month.  Our theme this month is All About Suites, highlighting all the suites we have in our Annual and New Mini Catalog.  We have talented Independent Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world taking part this month to show you wonderful products and suites from our catalogs.  You may have joined me from Terri's blog and their project was wonderful.  

For my card today I chose to feature the Plaid Tidings Suite in the new Mini Catalog.  It has a beautiful Stamp Set called Celebration Tidings along with a Die Set called Celebration Label Dies.  The papers are amazing and have patterns for all seasons. It also come with some beautiful 3/8" Embroidered Ribbon.  I am using all of these products in my card for you today. 

I started with a card base in Crushed Curry, cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  I then added a thin layer of Pretty Peacock cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".  I then added a piece of the Plaid Tidings DSP cut at 4 1/4" x 5" as I wanted that to be the focal point of my card. You will need a scrap of Whisper White to cut out the label, it is the 2nd one counting from inside of the package!  You will also need a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White inside piece if you wish.  


I chose the pumpkins and coordinating leaf bottom stamps for my card today.  I lined both of them up on one stamp and spaced them apart enough to get my sentiment in between!  I used my grid paper to make them straight and then put them on the block.  I stamped it in Memento Black Tuxedo Ink as I wanted to ensure I could use my Stampin' Blends to color them in.  I used the following Stampin' Blends colors to color my label: Light Shaded Spruce for leaves, Dark Mango Melody for leaves/flowers, light and dark Pumpkin Pie for Pumpkins and Dark Crumb Cake for pumpkin Stems.

I then adhered my label using Stampin' Dimensionals.  To finish I used the ribbon that comes in this Suite, the Embroidered Ribbon, but also used the Metallic copper ribbon that comes in the new mini catalog from the Gilded Autumn Suite.  I simply tied them in a knot and adhered them the left top corner with a glue dot.  I added a few cinnamon cider enamel dots as well to finish it off.  Again here is a picture of my card. I hope you enjoy it.

Today I have chosen to use a Stamp Set from the Annual Catalog called Hooray To You as I was in need of a birthday card!  I have also used the Playing With Patterns 6x6 DSP as it is gorgeous and makes making a card so easy. 

Here is the card I have made for you! 


I used 3 Stampin' Blends to color my flowers on my balloon and those are Dark Purple Posey, Dark Pool Party and Dark Flirty Flamingo!  Only ink I used was Memento Tuxedo Black.  I added the bow using the Twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack. I finished the front by adding Basic Rhinestones and then spritzing champagne glimmer paint mixed with alcohol to make it sparkle.  I spritz from about 6 to 9 inches away and 2 to 3 times depending how much sparkle you want! It dries quick and is beautiful! 


Measurements for my card are as follows:

Card Base is Misty Moonlight 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2".  My first layer is Purple Posey and it is cut at 4" x 5 1/4".  My DSP is cut at 3 3/4" x 5" and my whisper white is cut at 3 1/4" x 4 1/2".  My whisper white for the inside is cut at 4" x 5 1/4".

Nothing's Better Than Saturday Night Facebook Live August 1st, 2020

Tonight on my Facebook Live I featured the Nothing's Better Than Stamp set and dies! The set was designed by $1 Million achiever Connie Stewart and I have followed her for years and this set definitely fits her!!! I do three cards on my Live, a Beginner Stamper card, a Casual Stamper card and an Avid Stamper Card.

For the beginner stamper card I use only paper, ink and stamps!  I featured the coffee cups in this cute stamp set.  I began by cutting a card base at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" in Flirty Flamingo.  My layer is Coastal Cabana and is cut at 4"x 5 1/4".  My Whisper White layer that is stamped on is 3 3/4" x 5".  The ink colors I used are Memento Tuxedo Black, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana and Crumb Cake.  For the crumb cake I did stamp off one time before stamping the steam.  The inside layer of Whisper White is cut at 4" x 5 1/4" as well.  Only thing I added was Wink of Stella to the coffee cups to make them SPARKLE!!!

For the casual stamper card I added a punch and some Designer Series Paper (DSP) to step it up a notch!  My card base is Bermuda Bay and it cut at 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2".  My DSP is Magenta Madness from the 2020-2022 In-Colors DSP pack and is cut at 4" x 5 1/4".  You need a scrap of both Bermuda Bay and Whisper White to punch out the 2 1/4" circle punch. I then just off-centered them on each other once I stamped the chocolates on the white circle.  I also used a 1/4" x 4" strip of Whisper White to stamp my sentiment and a 4" x 5 1/4" piece for the inside of the card.  Ink pads I used were Magenta Madness and Bermuda Bay to stamp the stars, and Early Espresso and Soft Suede  for the chocolates.  It is simple yet a step up from beginner stamping. 

For the avid stamper card, I incorporated the dies that go with this Stamp set that are called Love You More Than dies.  I also used the 2nd and 3rd largest Stitched Nested Label Dies as well.  My card base for this card is Coastal Cabana cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  My basic black layer is cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and my Shimmery Whisper White layer is cut at 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" and then sponged with Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo.  I also needed scraps of basic black and shimmery whisper white for the label dies and the cocktails glasses and cocktails die!  I used the Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo sponged to cut out the Cocktails die and used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay and Mango Melody for the cocktail glasses.  I popped up the stitched nested label black die on the white sponged background and also popped up the drinks.  I added some basic rhinestones and wink of stella to finish it off. 


I hope you have enjoyed these three cards that show different methods for you and your customers!  If you don't have a current Stampin' Up! ® demo and would like any products, use the contact me method above and I will send you a catalog or head HERE to shop with me now!

July Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring Designer Series Paper (DSP)


Hello and Welcome to our July Monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop!  Thank you for hopping with us; we are glad to have you here.  Our theme for this month is our wonderful Designer Series Papers (DSP) in the new Annual Catalog.  We have talented Independent Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world that are all participating this month and again are so glad you are joining us! You will see many samples and projects and cards using our DSP in this month's blog. You may have arrived from Terri's  blog and her project was wonderful! 


For my card today, I decided to do a Tri-Fold card, so I had more options to showcase the DSP.  I used 2 different packs of DSP, one being the Flowers for Every Season 6x6 DSP and the other one being the 2020-2022 In-Colors 6x6 DSP.  I am pairing it with the Timeless Tulips DSP and a card base in Magenta Madness. I also included Beautiful Friendship for a sentiment and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies as well. 




My measurements for the card and layers as is as follows:  Card base is Magenta Madness cut at 5 1/2" x 11", scored at 4 1/4", 7" and 9 3/4".  My DSP layers are cut at 4"x5 1/4", 2 1/2"x 5 1/4", and 1"x 5 1/4". I also have a piece of whisper white cut at 2 1/2"x 5 1/4" for stamping.  You will also needs scraps of whisper white and just jade for your die cuts.  There is not much room for a message so if you wish you could add a whisper white of 4"x 5 1/4" on the back side to write a message! :) 





I simply layered the DSP pieces with side of my choice to the panels, and the whisper white one as well after stamping of course! Inks I used were Just Jade and Magenta Madness and Memento Black.  I added a piece of Misty Moonlight Ribbon to the front panel in a knot.  The die cut layers are just jade and whisper white, and I stamped in Memento Black and then stamped off 2 times before adding the tulip in magenta madness on the sentiment as well.  Dimensionals only go on very edge by the ribbon so the card will open! To finish I simply added a few of the gilded gems to add a pop! 



Thank you so much for hopping with us today and each month. We love for you join us and gain creativity.  Now click below to hop to the next spot in the hop which is Debbie. I am sure she has an amazing project to share with us all. See you all next month.

Brand New In-Colors 2020-2022 with Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am happy you are here and taking a look at what I have created for you today. Today I am pairing all 5 brand new In-Colors for 2020-2022 with the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set for my customer thank you cards this month.



I started with the basic card base which is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4".  I then added a piece of the coordinating In-Color DSP in each of the base colors alternating patterns.  These are cut at 2 1/2" x 6" and then trimmed once adhered for accurate measurement.



I then cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock at 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" and stamped the big sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers set in each of the 5 new In-Colors. I then adhered that to the card using Tombow glue.

For the Sentiment I used the Celebrate Sunflowers set and used "Thanks a Bunch" as these are easy to duplicate and are my customer thank you cards for June.  I used the triple banner punch to flag the end and stamped in Memento Black Ink! I know this is on back order right now so you could easily stamp it in the In-Color colors as well on Whisper White.

For embellishments I used each fo the new In-Color ribbons and enamel dots.



I hope you enjoy my cards. If you don't have a current Stampin' Up! demonstrator and love this cards and supplies I would love to help you.
