Summer of Thanks

Thank You cards are always needed and today’s is a quick one.  Using the Shaded Summer stamp and matching Die set it came together easily.

Colors

It is very unusual for me to say a color choice came from anywhere other than some designer paper.  But today’s card color choice came from the stamp and me wanting a Red Rose!  Then it became a pretty simple and quick card by stamping tone on tone for the base.  Which is another unusual technique for me because I tend to have a few layers.  But today’s card is mostly Sweet Sorbet all the way!

Stamps

The stamp set for this sweet flower, I believe it is a rose???, is the Shaded Summer stamp set.  The Tone On Tone was done using Sweet Sorbet Ink on the Sweet Sorbet card base using the smaller flower stamp.  Then using the larger one I stamped on a scrap of White and fussy cut only the flower.  With not wanting the card totally one color, I opted for stamping the large image using Pale Papaya.  The softness blends well with the Sweet Sorbet, even if it is not a green as expected.

Adding the sentiment took a bit of thought.  In trying something different, I stamped the sentiment and then did a bit of fussy cutting around it.  Most of the edges are straight lines, but I did go around the Y and u on each end.

Dies and Vellum

A matching Die set for the Shaded Summer stamp set is the Summer Shadow Dies.  They are not a bundle however.  The dies were released as a special edition last year and then added to the Annual Catalog in June.  Personally I was thrilled because dies for flowers are awesome!  So the large Pale Papaya flower was Die cut and then the fussy cut Sweet Sorbet flower was layered in to place.

The second Die is the Deckled Rectangles Dies.  It was used on the Vellum layer.  And it may be a bit difficult to see in the photo, but is very noticeable in person.  The Third largest die was used for this piece.  Lovely Layers Vellum is a package of Layer Sized pieces of vellum.  Some are printed and most are the same as I used.

Finishes

To give the card a bit of bling and shine, there are three different elements.  First is the Wink of Stella on the red flower.  That leaves a very subtle bit of shine.  Secondly is the beautiful Sweet Sorbet Metallic Ribbon bow. This ribbon is available in all of the new In Colors and is a dream to tie bows with.  And the metallic shine is a perfect touch.  Finally there are three of the 2021-2023 Opals in the Pale Papaya scattered around.

Fun Gatefold

Today’s card is a different layout for a Gatefold Card.  Turning the orientation really changed the look.   A layered sentiment joins the fold together.

 

Stampin' Up!, Splendid Thoughts, Rings of Love DSP, Deckled Rectangle Dies, Peaceful Moments, Splendid Stems Dies, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps and Dies

The Splendid Thoughts Bundle includes the Splendid Thoughts Stamp set and the Splendid Stems Dies.  The Dies are wonderful and I have used them more than the stamp set.  My favorite is the sentiment Die used here.  That taco shape with some added definition is great for a lot of sentiments in the catalog.

And the Splendid Stems Dies include a variety of flower and stems.  Two of the images above are stamped and then Die cut.  But the third Crushed Curry piece is simply Die cut.  This more open stem adds quite a lot of texture.

Last, but not least, is the Deckled Rectangles Dies.  The NIght of Navy layer is cut using one of those and the edge is very different from any other of the current Dies in the catalog.

Inside View

 

The inside sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp set.  There is an added touch of one stem of flowers.  On the front I stamped the same image on Sweet Sorbet cardstock and then die cut.  For the inside one, I stamped on the White and then colored with Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends.

Paper

Stampin’ Up!’s DSP is one of my most favorite things in the catalog.  This paper is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and is FREE with a qualifying order.  It is the Rings of Love Designer Series Paper.  All of the colors in this sheet are wonderful.  And I probably used the majority of them in either cardstock or coloring.  The combination of the Night of Navy and Sweet Sorbet are perfect I believe.

Measurements:

The Sweet Sorbet card base is cut to 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and scored at 2 1/8 and 6 3/8.  It may be a bit difficult to see in the photo, but there is a White layer under the DSP.  It is two pieces that are each cut 5 1/4 X 1 7/8.  And the DSP layers are two pieces cut at 5 1/8 X 1 3/4.

Inside is a regular size White layer cut to 5 1/4 X 4.  For the front, theNight of Navy Deckled layer is cut from a piece of scrap that is 2 1/2 X 4.  And the Crumb Cake layer is from a piece measuring 2 3/4 X  3 1/2.  The Sweet Sorbet image truly was a narrow scrap that was approximately 1 X 3.  And and even smaller scrap was used on the Crushed Curry piece.

The stems were adhered to the Night of Navy layer only at the bottom.  By leaving the upper parts free it gives a touch more dimension.  And the sentiment is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The whole sentiment / stems layer was centered on the right side of the card with only the upper half adhered to the top flap by using Stampin’ Dimensionals also.

New Sale-A-Bration Items

Stampin’ Up! has added ten new items to the Sale-A-Bration products.  So you now have some wonderful new products to finish off your next order.  These items are the same pricing as in the SAB booklet.  They are FREE with a qualifying order, either $50.00 or $100.00.  Plus these are all items from the current Annual Catalog.  You can see them in use as you peruse the catalog for your wish list and next order.

These items are also the same in that they are while supplies last.  Although the fact they are in the Annual Catalog should make that a slim chance of running out.

Page 20 of the Annual Catalog has two sweet cards showing the Daffodil Dies in use. And page 75 showcases three beautiful cards using the Flowers of Home Dies which pairs with the Blessing of Home stamp set.  These two are favorites of mine.  But so are both of the embossing folders.  And I absolutely love the Foil papers.  But then you know that I love it all!!!

If you have any questions, please reach out to me.  I would love to be your creative assistant!

Hippo Love

This is the last month of Sale-A-Bration for this year.  Today’s card showcases two of the fun FREE items you can earn with qualified purchases. They are a stamp set and matching dies of happy hippos.

 

Stampin' Up!, Hippest Hippos, Hippo Dies, Happy Forest Friend, Tea Cup Dies, Season of Chic, Jackie Beers

 

Stamp Set(s)

The hippo stamp set is FREE with qualified purchase from Sale-A-Bration called Hippest Hippos.  There are three hippos and I used all of them.  The facial expressions are so darn cute that I could not resist making a fun loving type card.  And what is better than a stack of fun hippos?  All of the stamping was done using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. And the coloring is with Stampin’ Blends.  The lighter shades on the hippos are Gray Granite and Smoky Slate.  Smoky Slate is the darker areas.  How well these colors worked on the hippos was a pleasant surprise.

For the sentiment, I wanted something that would fit proportionally to one of the hippos.  Personally I love sweet and small sentiments for little tags.  This one was located in the Season of Chic stamp set.  “Love You” works for most any occasion!

Dies

As with the stamp sets, there were two different die sets used.  The first is the 2nd FREE from Sale-A-Bration dies.  They are the Hippo Dies.  There are additional cute and fun pieces that fit the stamp set, as well as the hippo dies.  Since I had not stamped any of the extra pieces, all I needed were the hippos.

The other Die set used is the Tea Cup Dies.  The cute little tag is from that Die set.  And the little “Love You” fit on it perfectly!  Additionally, it may appear the tree stump is a die cut, but it was fussy cut from the piece of DSP.  There is a tree stump and matching die in the Happy Forest Friends.  Those are adorable, except this one has the little leaf and stem attached.  That adds a bit since the hippos are standing on it.  Plus it is so beautifully colored that I chose to go this route.

Paper

Of course all of the colors used came from the DSP.  It is the Happy Forest Friend Designer Series Paper.  The colors in this pack are good variety of colors.  Having fun paper is a great benefit from Stampin’ Up!.  In keeping with the hippos in gray, I went with a Smoky Slate card base and Old Olive as the layer.  And to ground the trio of balancing hippos I added a fun piece of the Smoky Slate for them to stand on.

The hippo layer of Smoky Slate is cut using two of the punches from the Very Best Trio Punch.  The top section was cut using the decorative edge punch.  And the bottom was cut using the Angle punch.  This is a great punch that I find myself using more and more often.

Slim Card Measurements

The card base is cut to  7 1/2 X 8 3/4 and scored at 3 3/4 on the 7 1/2 side.  Then folded and creased well.   For the Old Olive layer it is cut to 3 1/2 X 8 1/2.  And the DSP layer is cut 3 1/4 X 8 1/4.  The Smoky Slate behind the hippos was cut to give equal distance around the balancing act and I failed to notate the final measurements.  My apologies there!

Spotlight on Mr. Moose

Mr. Moose is in the spotlight today!  By using the Spotlight Technique I am only highlighting a portion of the moose image.  This is a fun technique that is an oldy but goody!

 

Stampin' Up!, All Bundled Up, Lights Aglow, Gold and Rose Gold, Heart punch, Jackie Beers

 

Technique

The Spotlight Technique is a simple one to accomplish.  This card was made as part of the Make My Monday Challenge that I am a Design Team Member for.  You can join in the fun by creating your own version and then adding your card on the challenge page.  Simply click on the picture below to go to the page.

My version of the spotlight was created by using the Heart Punch, the smaller one, and punching a heart from a scrap of cardstock.  Next I placed the negative, the scrap of cardstock with the heart missing, over the stamped image of Mr. Moose.  After finding the perfect section to color, I used the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to draw around the inside of the negative.  A quick and easy method.  You may use any shape you wish as long as you are not covering the majority of the image.  By using the heart I thought it was a bit different and shows love for Mr. Moose.

Stamps

Because the stamped image of Mr. Moose is so large I did not add a sentiment.  But there are cute sentiments included in the stamp set named All Bundled Up, as well as a few other cute critters.  You may remember that I used the Raccoon last week.  There is also a bunny and a bird.  Mr. Moose is stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored using Stampin’ Blends.  As mentioned above the spotlight shape was drawn using a Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  This is the only marker that is available individually.  It is a very handy tool to have.

Paper

Leaving the paper discussion to last was very difficult for me.  This paper is amazing!!  It is from the Lights Aglow 6X6 Designer Series Paper.  All of the sheets are gorgeous but this is my favorite.  The gold simply shines and I am in love with the design on this sheet.  The colors used are very similar to the Raccoon card from last week.  But after seeing this piece of paper, I knew it was The One to help Mr. Moose be the star!

And to further help Mr. Moose shine, I added more gold to bring out the gold in the DSP piece.  It is not just a plain Gold Foil however.  This is the Gold and Rose Gold 6×6 Metallic Specialty Paper.  It carried over to the current Annual Catalog from last year’s Fall Mini.  And I am so happy.  Both colors in this paper pack are wonderful.  Before you shake your head at me for wasting some of this beautiful paper, rest assured that I took this into consideration.  I cut the layer behind Mr. Moose from the center of the larger gold layer.  No one but me would know, and it saves a second piece of the paper.  Now you can released the shocked breath you took after seeing two layers of gold! 🙂

Splendid Celebration

Showcasing beautiful paper is an easy thing to do with Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series paper.  This card is starring the Splendid Day DSP.

 

Stampin' Up!, Splendid Day, Splendid Thoughts, Splendid Stems, Jackie Beers

 

This card was created during a Stampin’ Up! creative day for demonstrators.  It was a fun day of creating with a presenter with not a real idea of the outcome until the card was complete.  All of the cards were great and not something I would have normally thought to do.  This one definitely fits that last statement.

Suite of Products

Generally I do not showcase a Suite of products.  However, this Suite is amazing and I love all of the products included in the suite.  It is all about the Splendid Day Suite today.

PAPER:    The star(s) of this card are the little taco shaped DSP pieces.  They are cut from the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The paper has a variety of soft colors with one side being a Foil and the other regular DSP images and designs.  To show so many different papers on one card is unusual even for me!  Last but not least is the card base of Petal Pink and the banner of Soft Sea Foam.  Both of these colors are included in the DSP.

DIES:    The taco looking pieces were cut using the die from the Splendid Stems Dies.  This shape is a favorite of mine.  I have used it on a few different cards because the shape and details are so unique.  A bonus is that two of the four sentiments included in the stamp set fit on this die cut!  And as you see on the card, it is a great size!

STAMPS:    To mimic the pattern in the Foil DSP pieces, the large leaf outline was used as Tone on Tone on the card base.  The Splendid Thoughts stamp set includes the sentiments I mentioned above plus a bee and two different stem/floral pieces.  Each of those have fill stamps as well.  Pairing these with the Die set, which has dies for those plus some extra leafy pieces, makes great focal layers.

Finishing Touches

The shine and taco shapes on this card are so pretty on their own.  And the added finishing touches simply emphasize these.  Even though the sentiment fits on the taco die, that would be a bit much.  So the sentiment was stamped on a piece of Soft Sea Foam.  Banner tips were cut using Paper Snips.

Also included in the Splendid Day Suite is the Soft Sea Foam 3/8″ Seam Binding Ribbon.  If you have used Seam Binding Ribbon before then you know how wonderful and easy it is to work with.  This ribbon is the same.  Plus we simply wrapped the ribbon around the white layer and tied a knot.  It doesn’t get any easier than that!

For the final touch there has to be a bit of bling.  Although with the foil DSP pieces there is already a good bit of shine!  The bling added to the sentiment is from the 2021-2023 Opal Rounds.

After seeing a bit of a different layout and use of dies, I would love for you to try a similar card and let me know what you think!!

The Coolest

The weather is most definitely NOT saying Winter, but today’s card may “cool” you off a bit.  It is such a fun set of bundled up critters.

 

Stampin' Up!, All Bundled Up, Winter Embossing Folder, Painted Christmas, Label Me Fancy, Natural Finish Ribbon, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

The All Bundled Up stamp set has such adorable animals, who are all “bundled” up with cute scarves and hats.  It is definitely making me warm just thinking about it since the weather here in Georgia is anything but cool right now.  However, we all need to begin thinking of our Christmas cards before long.  And this stamp set would be great for any time of year that the weather is a bit cooler.  Plus the sentiment gives a fun twist to the little raccoon’s outfit.

The raccoon is stamp stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.  His scarf and hat are colored using Soft Succulent and Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends.  For a bit of semi-bling, but not really, I added the single snow flake to the raccoon layer.  There are actually three different snowflakes on that stamp and they are used on the inside of the card.  The sentiment is from the stamp set and is stamped using Pool Party Ink, as is the snowflake.

Paper

The colors used are from the piece of DSP.  That paper is the Painted Christmas Designer Series paper, which is a carryover from last Fall Mini Catalog into the current one.   By using the darkest color for the card base and coming forward with lighter colors gives a different look I think.  And is not something I tend to even think about.  Evening Evergreen is the base card with a layer of Soft Succulent.  The strip of DSP is cut 5 X 1 3/4 and is adhered directly to the Soft Succulent layer.  Simply leave the correct edging distance on the bottom and sides for fitting.

Embossing Etc.

To pair with the DSP layer I went with the Winter 3D Embossing Folder Duo.  These two embossing folders are sized to work on the Mini Cut & Emboss Machine.  This one is snowflakes and the second one is evergreen bows.  Either would have worked, but I was thinking snow!  The embossed layer is Basic White and is cut 5 X 2.  It is layered abutting the DSP layer with the same distance on the sides and top.  And even if it did not meet perfectly, the Natural Finish Ribbon covers the joining line.

To highlight the sentiment, I could not find two punches or dies to layer that fit in the area I had left.  After debating I finally decided upon the Label Me Fancy Punch.  The sentiment was cut using the punch and then a second piece was punched from a scrap of the Evening Evergreen.  This piece was cut up the center.  By layering these two pieces to each end of the sentiment, you get just enough of a frame of green.  And you really do not even notice that none is showing above and below the white.  For the final touch a single Festive Pearl was added on the sentiment layer.

Twisted for Pals July Fun Fold

For today’s Pals Fun Fold Blog Hop I have a Twisted Card to share with you.  Twisted is an odd name for a card but is very appropriate in this instance.

 

Stampin' Up!, Celebrate With Tags, Designer Tags, Hues of Happiness, Layering Circles, Jackie Beers

 

And here is the unfolded card to give you a better idea of the Twist.

 

 

Twist Fold

This type of Fun Fold has been around for a while.  And I have wanted to make it, but the size was too large.  All of the versions I had seen were 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 so required a special envelope.  Keeping it simple and working with what we have is my preference.  So I fiddled with the measurements and this one will fit inside a regular A2 envelope.

Hopefully my directions in the PDF are understandable.  Although I will say the most difficult part is making sure the DSP is cut in the direction you want.  It took me two tries to get that correct.  And there are videos available for the larger size.  The directions would be the same with the exception of the height of the card base.

CLICK HERE FOR THE PDF

Stamps

Both of the sentiments used are from the Celebrate With Tags stamp set.  For the front, I stamped the sentiment and then cut it apart to fit on the circle section of the tag.  It can work by either cutting straight with a paper trimmer or as I did and just winging it with paper snips! Personally I like the bit of angle to the Let’s and You.

Dies

Two different die sets were used for this fun card.  The one I love is the Designer Tags Dies.  It includes the tag on the front of the card.  The little detail at the top plus the stitched edging adds more than you would expect.  And the second die is the Layering Circles Dies for the white and Hues of Happiness circles on the tag.  If you happen to still have circle punches, they would work also.  The white circle is exactly the width of the tag for reference.

Thank you for visiting and please follow along to the other Fun Folds in the Hop.

Nature’s Prints

Sharing the beautiful Sun Prints Designer Series Paper brings me happiness.  And it can be the star of the card.  That is the case for today’s quick, Fun Fold card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Nature's Prints, Very Best Occasions, Sun Prints, Double Oval Punch, Jackie Beers

Paper

The variations in colors of the Sun Prints Designer Series paper is so pretty!  And that is an understatement.  The pack is variations of Blue, gray and white.  This piece is particularly appealing to me and is why I chose it for this card.  Sadly a Sympathy cards was needed and I wanted it to be caring and pretty at the same time.

The DSP is paired with a color I rarely use.  It is the Gray Granite.  This color has a brownish tone to it compared to say Smoky Slate, which has a silvery tone.  And either of these would work with this DSP.  But the Gray Granite is maybe a touch softer so it seems to pull out the softer shades in the paper.

Stamps

There are two wonderful stamp sets used on this card.  The first is the set for the sentiments.  It is an awesome stamp set named Very Best Occasions and is in the Mini Catalog.  Better yet is that it is paired in a bundle with the Very Best Trio Punch.  The punch was used in a card last week for decoration on the focal layer.  For a quick and beautiful edge to a layer, I highly recommend the punch and these sentiments are a nice mix of different occasions.

The second stamp set is the Nature’s Print stamp set.   To give some beauty to the White part of the card which shows above the sentiment flap, I used one of the floral stamps.  It is stamped in Gray Granite Ink and then stamped off before stamping the White layer.  This gives quite a bit softer shade of color.  But you still get the definition of the stamp.

Card Design

This card qualifies in my book as a Fun Fold.  It is a quick and easy one to do, which is a super bonus.  The card base is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and scored on the 8 1/2 side at 4 1/4.  Then you cut off 2″ from the front flap.  Save that piece because it becomes the little flap!  Fold that 2 X 5 1/2 piece in half and burnish the fold.  Then adhere half behind the White piece prior to adding the White inside layer.

The DSP pieces are 1 7/8 X 5 1/8 and 2 3/8 X 1 5/8.  Each of these pieces is layered onto a piece of Basic White that are cut 2 X 5 1/4 and 2 1/2 X 1 3/4.  The inside White layer is cut 4 X 5 1/4.  As a finishing touch, the front sentiment layer, is stamped using Gray Granite Ink.  The Double Oval Punch is used to cut the sentiment and the background scalloped layer.  This is probably my most used punch!  And this may be my card requiring the least number of supplies I have ever made!! 🙂

Here is a look at the open card.

A Touch of Fall

The card I am sharing today may have you wishing for Fall and cooler weather.  Showcased are the Leaf Embossing Folder and Leaf Labels.

 

Stampin' Up!, Leaf Embossing, Leaf Label, Ringed With Nature, Rings of Love, Jackie Beers

 

Leaf Labels

Nothing could be simpler than using these Leaf Labels as a focal layer on a card.  These beauties come already cut, and even have a tag hole in place to use them as a tag.  The hole is at the top point ,where I have strategically placed an Amber Gem.  Speaking of the Amber Gems, they are included with the Leaf Labels!  It is a two for one pairing.  All I had to do was stamp the sentiment on the leaf and it was ready to go.

Designer Series Paper

This beautiful and bright piece of DSP is from the Sale-A-Bration paper named Rings of Love Designer Series Paper.  It is FREE with a $50.00 order.  By using just a strip, it goes a really long way in creating some beautiful cards for Fall.  And all of the colors are bright ones.  That is my choice for most card colors.  Plus the bright plays perfectly to the Kraft paper of the Leaf Label.

Background and Embossing

The background of this card was created from the DSP of course.  All of the colors were pulled from that little strip, as was the decision on the Embossing Folder.  Crushed Curry was used to show off the beautiful leaves of the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder.  They blow softly across the card.  Actually it is a large space folder so you can move your cardstock around a little to place the leaves in the best location.  To compliment all of the layers, I went with Parakeet Party as the card base.  The brightness offsets the Kraft leaf and ties in to the DSP colors.
