I have another Springtime card to share today.  I have also used another one of the products from the Early Release Suite, Ornate Gardens.  Yesterday I used the Designer Series Paper.  Today I am using the Ornate Layers Dies.  At this one at a time rate, I will have used them all by the end of the month. 🙂

 

Stampin' Up!, Free As A Bird, Bird Ballad, Ornate Layers, Stitched Rectangles, Jackie Beers

 

The Ornate Layers Dies are fabulous.  The newer dies also seem to be, at least to me, sharper than the old dies. It makes for an easier release of all the little pieces.  I also had a Wahoo find for the sentiment layer.  The smaller of the Stitched Rectangle Dies fits perfectly inside this Ornate layer.

Here is a picture of the die I used.

 

The sentiment is the only stamp I used from the Free As A Bird set, but I believe it is a great one for so many people during this unusual situation.  From the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper, I used two different sheets.  They are layered on a piece of Whisper White, and then onto a piece of So Saffron to match the Ornate Layer.

I used the Braided Burlap Trim to ground the sentiment and join the two pieces of DSP.  It also gives a little nod to the bird colors.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you find some crafting time over the weekend, or whatever you can do to relax.

You Are Wonderful

Stampin’ Up! has a new Early Release Product Suite that I wanted to share with you.  I know if you are on the internet you have seen several projects from other demonstrators using this suite.  It is gorgeous and I wanted to share and quick card I made using the Designer Series Paper that is included in this suite.  You know I love the Stampin’ Up! DSP !

Before we get to the card, here is the flyer for the suite of products.

 

 

And here is the card I have made.

 

Stampin' Up!, Ornate Garden, Ornate Frames, Perfectly Framed, Daisy Lane, Jackie Beers

 

There are gorgeous and very detailed dies as part of the Ornate Garden Suite of products.  However, I had it in my mind to use the Perfectly Framed sentiment.  And since that stamp set pairs with the Ornate Frames Dies that carried over from the Holiday Catalog, I decided to go with my original plan.

When I first saw this Designer Series paper, I thought of the two daisy stamp sets that are in the Annual Catalog.  I looked at both and thought the Daisy Lane stamp set was a perfect match.  The angled daisy matches the daisy in the DSP.

I layered my card with colors from the DSP.  I know that is a big shock to you!!  I always do that.  I chose the Old Olive as the card base and then went with Rococo Rose for the coordinating color.  The DSP says it is Terracotta Tile, but I found that the Rococo Rose was a perfect match as well.  I used the Rococo Rose stampin’ Blends to color the daisy on the sentiment band.

Thank you for stopping in today.  Let’s all pray that this virus is over quicker than expected and we can all take back our lives.  I love staying inside and crafting, but I know there are many people feeling huge hardships from this.

Birthday Cheer

I have a quick #simplestamping card to share with you today.  I was playing with the Follow Your Art Designer Series paper for a different project and had the idea for this card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Follow your art, Parcel & Petals, #simplestamping, Jackie Beers

 

This is such gorgeous designer series paper.  I love this sheet especially.  The little cross band is a piece from this pack as well.

The sentiment and flowers are from Parcel & Petals stamp set.  I stamped off with the flowers before stamping on the paper.  I love the sentiment itself so wanted it to be front and center.

I pulled all of the colors from the DSP .  They are Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, and Daffodil Delight.

Thank you for stopping in today.  We may prefer the more layered or dimensions to a card, but I think it is nice to just sit down for a quick break to make one as well.  This card is a great way to use some of the leftover or retired designer series paper.

Easter Fun Fold

Today is the last day of Sale-A-Bration.  I am sad to see these great products, that we can earn FREE, going away.  Double check your wish lists and see if you need just one more order today!

I have a cute Easter Fun Fold to share today. I also have my first ever Video!!!!!  I have said several times in my posts that I would do a video for some cards and I never had.  Well, now I have.  I hope you will let me know what you think.  I still need to get some lighting so I do not have the shadows.  I know I am my worst critic, but please share your thoughts.

The Easter Fun Fold is using the Welcome Easter stamp set and SAB Small Blooms punch as well as the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper.

Here is the video

 

This is the same basic card as I shared HERE.

 

Measurements:

  • Base card is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored at 2 1/4 and 6 1/4  (It ends up as 5 1/2 X 4 instead of 4 1/4)
  • NOTE:  The two “flaps” are the same measurements, it does not matter which you choose as the top.
  • Front flap bases are 5 1/4 X 2 ( you need 2)
  • Front DSP is 5 X 1 3/4 ( you need 2)
  • Inside card is 3 1/2 X 4 3/4
  • When securing bottom flap to hold inside card, lay the card in place before peeling off the Tear & Tape to secure the flap.  This ensures you have room to easily slide the card in and out.  If you are adding a gift card, lay it down there as well prior to securing.

 

Thank you for stopping in today.  If you have any questions, please let me know.  I would be happy to assist you.

Water Lily Thank You

Reminder:  There are only today and tomorrow left in Sale-A-Bration!!  There are some great items left that you can get Free of charge with a qualifying order.

For today’s card, I am focusing on two items from Sale-A-Bration.  They are the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and the matching Lily Impressions Designer Series paper.  The paper is absolutely gorgeous.  I love bright colors and the paper has several bright colors in it.

 

Stampin' Up!, Lovely Lily Pad, Lily Impressions, Peaceful Moments

 

The DSP is the star of the card, and I loved being able to pair Granny Apple Green with the Blackberry Bliss.  As I said at the beginning, I adore this Designer Series Paper.

The sentiment layer is a mix of a water lily from the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and the Thank You from Peaceful Moments Stamp Set.  The stamps in the Lovely Lily Pad are dual sided.  So the flat side is the shading and the raised side is the definition.  I stamped the lily pad with the background of Pool Party, and the definition in Bermuda Bay.  The same works for the lily itself.  The background is Flirty Flamingo and the definition is Lovely Lipstick.  I think that is an awesome method to get the perfect shading to a stamp.

My prior planning did not work out for the sentiment layer.  I had planned to use a certain die to cut out the lily and Thank You.  It did not fit after I had stamped everything.  Then I could not find one that I did like.  So I turned to my paper snips and just free form cut it out.  I was not too unhappy with the result. I believe the abstract of the DSP lends a help there!

Thank you for stopping by today.  Double check your wish list and see if there is a need for another order before the Free items are gone for another year.

Oopsy!

Today’s card is a little humor and little Get Well.  I laugh every time I look at the Back On Your Feet stamp set.  The critters are just adorable and the sayings match perfectly.  Sadly, I have only used it a few times.  A Friend had an accident last week so I knew this was the set to pull out.

 

 

I love Mr. Turtle and his facial expression!  And when I was looking for the proper background paper, I saw this and knew I had found the proper one.  With the bruising in mind, that was what I saw in this paper.  When the bruises turn all of those exciting blues and greens, with a purple added in!  Yes, my friend has those.

This paper is from the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper.  It is another of my “back side of the paper” finds.  The front , sort of embossed, side would have worked also, but I liked this one a bit better.  Plus it had the green I used for the turtle.\

Thank you for stopping in today!  I very much appreciate it and hope you are having a good day.

Hello Sunshine

My card for today is in appreciation for us getting sunshine for the next several days!  I had a few cards made since I’ve been isolating myself.  But with the gorgeous weather, it inspired me to make one to celebrate the clear sky.

Before I get to today’s project, I want to make sure you have seen the Third, and final, release for Sale-A-Bration.  We only have a few days left and this is the extra ones through the end.  You must use the numbers assigned to this Final Release and not the numbers for these items that are in the catalogs.

All are Level 1 ($50.00) except the Butterly Punch and the Wild Rose Dies .  They are Level 2 (100.00)

The Numbers are:

  • Dinoroar DSP:155882
  • Follow Your Art DSP: 155880
  • Mini Shipping Boxes (X2): 155879
  • Red Rhinestones (X2): 155878
  • Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack: 155885
  • Shimmer Details Laser Cut Specialty DSP: 155884
  • Woven Threads DSP:  155883
  • Butterfly Duet Punch: 155877
  • Wild Rose Dies: 155886

 

Ok…  Now on to today’s card.  Are you thinking Bright

Sunshine?

 

 

You got the Bright part correct. I love bright colors and the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper fits the bill perfectly.  I have had this “frame” from that striped piece in my brain for a while.  I just could not get it to work out on paper.  It still isn’t what I envisioned, but this is what I ended up with.  After I had everything together, it hit me to miter the corners of my striped frame.  Just a tad too late for that on this one.

The idea for the card was HOPEFULLY saying farewell to the umbrellas and rain boots for a while!!

I have used three different pieces of the Pleased As Punch DSP.  The umbrella is punched from the umbrella piece using the Umbrella Builder Punch that is part of the Under My Umbrella Bundle.  The Boots are stamped onto the flower piece that pairs with the Small Flower Punch in SAB and is going to carry over to the next catalog.  And of course the border which is the multi stripe piece.

The umbrella punched out but the boots were stamped in Gray Granite on the DSP and then fussy cut using my Paper Snips.  The sentiment is from the stamp set Under My Umbrella.  It is stamped in Balmy Blue (just like the beautiful clear sky!).  Those layers are the  1 3/8 scalloped circle punch and the  1 1/4 circle punch.

I almost went with the Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon, but decided the Gray Granite version played off of the gray outline of the rain boots.  I tied a double bow using the 1/8″ Whisper White Sheer Ribbon.

Thank you for visiting today.  Please come back tomorrow for another new project.

Paper Pumpkin Love

The title for today is what I am doing.  I am giving some Love to Paper Pumpkin kits.  I do not normally share the Paper Pumpkin cards here because once I have received mine it is too late for you to sign up to get this one.  Although you can sometimes get some of the past kits.

I thought I would show you how great the stamp sets are and that you can mix them with other Stampin’ Up! products to make a totally different card.  Here is what I made.

 

 

I paired the March Paper Pumpkin Kit with some of the Whisper White Notecards and Envelopes from the Annual Catalog.  I stamped the images on a piece of smaller card stock then layered it to the notecard with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I truly adore these rain boots!!  They are what made me decide to share with you.  They are a two step stamp. The outline of the boot is one stamp and then the overall flowers are a separate stamp.  So the flowers could be any color making your boot colors whatever you feel like for the day.  I wish I could do that in real life!!  With all the rain over the last three months, and its raining again!, I would love to have a variety of rain boots!

I wanted the flowers to be a little bit behind the rain boots to show some depth.  When I stamped the outline of the rain boots, I also stamped it on a scrap piece of paper.  I used the Paper Snips to cut out the left one.  After I had stamped the color for the boot, I placed the mask over the outline and stamped the flowers.  I use just a tiniest bit of snail adhesive in one spot to hold my mask in place.

Paper Pumpkin is a once a month box of fun stamping that arrives in your mail box.  You can purchase one month as a test to see if you like it.  Or, you can purchase multiple months.  You an even give it as a gift to someone you know would love a crafting gift that arrives each month.  The cost is 22.00 a month plus tax.

Here is a link to a video about the next Paper Pumpkin.  Click HERE.

Barbecue Birthday

I have a difficult time of designing a masculine card.  From posts I read, I believe that to be true for a lot of us.  Today I am sharing one that pairs two very common “guy” items.

 

 

I paired the Outdoor Barbecue stamp set with the country Club Designer Series Paper for a bright guy birthday card.  And yes……I know women play golf and barbecue!  LOL!!!  But, these were two products that I had not previously used.  And since I was thinking masculine, it is what I created.

I love the sentiment from the Outdoor Barbecue stamp set !  It brings to mind “fire” and we have definitely had many of those on our back deck!  But the brightness of the Country Club DSP is a perfect pairing for the barbecue.  I love bright colors, but if you do not, there are other more subdued “argyle” prints as well as golf themed prints.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you are able to get some crafting in during this difficult time of separation.

Amazing Day for FMS427

I am late to the challenge for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge of this past week.  But when I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to play along.  I love using sketches as ideas.

 

Stampin' Up!, Rise and Shine, Cup of Cheer, Scripty, Label Me Fancy, Jackie Beers

 

Here is the sketch I used for this card.  I turned it to a landscape version.

 

From my usual cards, this is a very soft and less ornate type card.  But I love it.  The cup is from the Sale-A-Bration late release named Rise & Shine.  It pairs with the Cup of Cheer Dies that carried over from the Holiday Catalog.   The cup and tag are from the stamp set and dies.

The sentiment is from the stamp set as well.  I paired it with the Label Me Fancy Punch.  This is quickly becoming a favorite punch for me.  The background I used is the beautiful Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  It is really pretty nicely embossed hand writing and adds a subtle background with a bit of texture.

Thank you for stopping in today!  Remember that we are nearing the end of Sale-A-Bration.  A few items have already sold out.  I would love to assist you with placing an order or in joining my team and getting all of the great benefits of being a Stampin’ Up!
