You’re The Best

When I made the Rooster card earlier in the week, I stamped the rooster twice, of course, to try coloring him a bit differently.  He didn’t end up too different from the earlier one however.  But the card layout is a bit different.  Here is the second Rooster card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Home To Roost, P.S. You're The Best, Tin Tile Embossing, Jackie Beers

Home To Roost, 149736

 

I still used the Poppy Parade for the cone and beard.  And that led to the Poppy Parade Frame.  Since the Mossy Meadow is quite darker, I decided to use the Poppy Parade as the ink on the sentiment.  One thing just led to another!

Speaking of the sentiment, it is from the P.S. You’re The Best stamp set.  It is a great little set with the typewriter.  It has cute little sentiments, and wonderful little background stamps for subtle additions to cards.

In case you missed Monday’s Rooster, you can see him HERE

Today’s little guy is not as bright as the first Rooster.   I still used the Bermuda Bay.  I loved the color and richness it gives to his main body feathers.  I am not sure how well you can see in the photo, but I carried the Smoky Slate out onto the tail feathers as well as the wing.  It looks good up close.  You will just have to trust me. LOL!

I was so thrilled when the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder carried over from the Holiday Catalog.  I hope you didn’t miss that.  It is listed on the inside of the back page of the Occasions Catalog as one of the main carry overs.  WOOHOO!!  I love the depth of the embossing, but a tin tile goes perfectly with the country feel of the rooster.

Card and Envelope in One

I commented yesterday that I had found old cards and 3D projects and would be CASING them.  Well, today is one of those Cases.  I did two versions of the Card & Envelope all in one.

This project utilizes the Envelope Punch Board.  This is one of my favorite tools to use.  I just do not do it often enough.  Usually I use it for other than envelopes, but today it was used for just the designed purpose.  Too funny!!

 

Stampin' Up!, Needles & Thread, Envelope Punch Board, Poppy Parade, Jackie Beers

Needles & Thread Bundle, 150626

 

And here it is open.

 

 

The one above is made from a 6X6 piece of Designer Series Paper.  The inside card is 3 1/8 X 4 1/8.

The larger one below is made with an 8 X8 piece of Designer Series Paper with the inside card 4 1/4 X 5 1/2.

 

Needles & Thread Bundle, 150626

 

 

These are actually very quick and easy to do .  The most difficult part is deciding how you want to do the closure.  And all that takes is a flower or object that the top flap slips behind.  The small one is the banner that says Thank You, and the large one is the flower layers.  For the flower, or something similar, I suggest a thick card stock and remember to put your dimensional(s) on the bottom portion only.  This way the flap slides behind the upper section and stays in place.

I used the Envelope Punch Board measurements for the size I wanted.  Actually I looked for the size paper I wanted to use first.  Also, there are no unusual steps to these cards.  Start with the first Punch/Score mark and then rotate the paper around, aligning the score line each time.  The small one begins at 2 5/8, and the large one begins at 3 1/2.

Special Note:   Do Not Forget that it is Sale-A-Bration time.  The Needles & Thread Bundle will put you 4.25 away from a FREE item.

I hope you will give these little guys a try and let me know what you think.  Thank you for stopping by today.  I have listed the supplies for both cards in the supply list at the bottom of the page.  Even though they look different, pretty much everything is included in the bundle.

Flap Fold Card

I have been going through old cards and 3D items again.  So be prepared for some redone “old” ideas in the near future.  Today is a redo of a buckle card.  At least that is what the inspiration card looked like.  I have combined a couple of Sale-A-Bration stamp sets to create this card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Dear Doily, Beauty Abounds, Nature's Poem, Blackberry Bliss, Petal Pink, Jackie Beers

Dear Doily, 148690

 

Please excuse my thumb!  I had to hold it to get the best picture.  The flap wanted to open enough to cause a shadow.  Anyway….. I combined Dear Doily with the Bocca from Beauty Abounds.  I have always loved small background stamps.  And these little dots are a great one to have.

Here is a view with the Flap open.

 

 

Now you can see the larger of the doilies stamped on the main card.  I really like how the punched layer on the flap centers with the main one.  It just took a small bit of moving around to get that alignment.  I attached the flap to the back of  the card.  I had already adhered the inside white layer before I thought about attaching.  Next time, I will add the flap to the inside back layer and cover it with the edge of the inside layer.

I used the colors in this Nature’s Poem sheet of DSP.  I do not believe I would normally pair Blackberry Bliss with Petal Pink.  Or, maybe now I will do that!  I like them together.  Even though it is not an exact match, I added one of the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the center of the flap doily.  It was just enough to call it finished!

I have the supplies at the bottom of the post and the measurements are listed next.  Thank you so much for visiting today.  Please come back tomorrow for another Redo Project.

 

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Base card is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored and folded
  • First layer is 5 1/4 X 4
  • Top layer is 5 1/8 X 3 7/8
  • Flap base layer is 4 1/2 X 1, scored at 1/2
  • DSP flap layer is 4 X 7/8

Bright Rectangle Rooster

I have finally broken out the Rectangle Stitched Framelits and OH MY !!!  I am in love!!  These are now my favorite Layering Framelits.  Be warned, I will be using these often I believe!  And I played with the Home To Roost rooster from Sale-A-Bration.  I have seen some beautifully colored roosters, as well as some just stamped roosters.  I like the look of both.  Today though, I went with a brightly colored rooster.

 

Stampin' Up!, Rectangle Stitched Framelits, Home To Roost, Jackie Beers, Beauty Abounds

Rectangle Stitched Framelits, 148551

 

I was  not so sure about this guy at first. We had a rooster show up in our neighborhood last year.  And he was a pain.  (I live in a subdivision and not in the country!)  So I was not too fond of chickens after that.  I am over it due to this cute fellow.  I now LOVE him!  And I am very happy with the coloring and how it works with the card stock layers.  I wasn’t sure on the colors at first, I am sure this is not a normal looking rooster!  But the bright layers of card stock makes the rooster pop.  Plus it gives the opportunity to see the beautiful Rectangle Stitched Framelits in action!!

To give a bit of texture to the white around the rooster, I used the splatter stamp from Beauty Abounds.  I love using small background stamps to add texture or just to soften up the stark white sometimes.  The sentiment also came from Beauty Abounds.

A last note about these framelits,  They put stitching on the layer it cuts out, but also on the piece that is left.  Sort of a two for one deal!  And we love those…..   For these layers, I used the largest die, skipped one, used the next die, skipped one, and used the next die.  I had planned on three consecutive sizes but when I saw how close together they would be, I opted for more card stock showing.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will return tomorrow to see a new project.  Remember the JOIN PROMOTION below!

Simple Ghirardelli Treat Holder

I was looking for card inspirations by looking through some old swap and Make ‘n Take cards when I discovered today’s project.  It is a very simple treat holder.  It is pretty quick and is really cute.  Hopefully I can explain it so you understand the simpleness of it.  That’s a lot of pressure!  LOL!!

I will apologize to the originator up front.  I have had this for some time, so I have no idea who to give credit for designing this. When I looked as I was getting ready to post, I did find several videos and posts of this on Pintrest.

 

Beauty Abounds, 148726

 

I love the softness of this sheet of designer series paper.  It is from the FREE Sale-A-Bration Botanical Butterfly DSP.  The butterflies on the sentiment are from the same pack of paper as well.  They were punched with the Butterfly Duet punch.  You may not be able to see from the angle, but there are two punched butterflies stacked on top of each other.  I will add that I have not previously been a huge butterfly fan.  The two new butterfly bundles, and especially this punch, have pretty much converted me!

And here is the back.  I added a small piece of paper so you write a message and sign your name.

 

 

This is a cute holder that you could make multiples of very quickly.  And it would be fairly easy to alter the size to maybe hold a Tea Packet or something similar.  Even down size to hold a Mini Ghirardelli chocolate.

I will give one Big Tip in making this.  Actually it is almost a must have.  The Simply Scored Tool, which to me is a must have anyway, makes this quick.  But the tip is to take a Black Marker and draw a line down the 6″ line.  It helps me with a lot of projects.  But for this one you are doing all your scoring from there.

Begin with a 6 X 6 DSP.  Place it with the points in a diamond shape and lined up on the 6″ line of the Simply Scored.  Score at 4 1/2, and 7 1/2.  Turn and line up the other points on the 6″ line in the diamond shape.  This time score at 5 1/4, 6, 6 3/4.

Now fold and burnish on all the lines.  (From the two large scores, you want to choose your outer paper side. )  Fold those to the center and then fold in half with the three folds at the bottom.  Push the center one up into the center of the two.  You are finished!!  How easy is that??  Then just decorate as you see fit.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will return on Monday .  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.

Stinkin’ Sweet Valentine

I have made a super quick , and super cute, little #SimpleStamping card for you today.  I made a little 3 1/4 square card.  There are no frills, just a sweet little card.  It would be a great gift card or even attached tag/card.  All you would need to do is punch a hole in the corner.  See what you think.

 

Hey Love, 148644

 

This little guy is just so darn cute!!  Who wouldn’t love him!  I stamped the little guy and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  I made him look like what I think a skunk would look like, not necessarily an accurate looking one.  And I did it in Smoky Slate as opposed to Black so you could see the cute features.

My valentine color this year is going to be this Lovely Lipstick.  I think it is such a versatile color.  The little hearts that are stamped are colored in with Lovely Lipstick dark Stampin’ Blend.  As is the Heart Epoxy Droplet.

Have you noticed these adorable hearts in the catalog?  I had one person comment that they didn’t think they would want a clear heart on the card.  But when I showed the ability to make it any color you want by using the Stampin’ Blends, it was a total game changer!  I wish I could say that I thought of it, but of course many others thought of it first.

Of course, this entire stamp set could be used for other than Valentine cards.  They are just adorable little animals.  I am going to be playing with them to see what I can come up with.

I outlined the little guy with the Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend just to give him a bit of a stand out look.  I got this idea from fellow demonstrator Susan Itell.  She does this quite often and I love the look it gives.

Piece of Cake

From myself to several friends, this past year has been a milestone birthday year.  I did not originally think of that when I began planning today’s card, but when I chose the final DSP to use it hit me.  I am sometimes slow that way.  However it worked out, this card would be perfect for a milestone of any kind.

 

Stampin' Up!, Piece of Cake, Amazing Life, Broadway , Jackie Beers

Piece of Cake Bundle, 150579

 

Do you see what I mean?  The black, silver, and gold would work for most special birthdays.  I love this Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper.  The gold foil is just awesome.  And of course the two different stamp set, bundles, I used were my must haves from the Occasions Catalog.

I mixed these two great sets, Piece of Cake, and Amazing Life, to get just the right look.  The sentiment is from Amazing Life and the cake is from Piece of Cake.  I adore the punch, but I am partial to punches anyway.  This one is so easy to line up with the cake.

I will say I used Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets for the cake stand and that little strip of  gold foil separating the DSP and the stamped images.  Both wold have been a tad difficult to add glue to.  At least for me anyway!  I felt the little strip was the perfect divider and love the finished look that it gives the card.

Hello Beautiful

I have a super quick and easy card today!  It is the definition of #SimpleStamping.  It can be done quickly, great for multiples, and is wonderful with almost any designer series paper.  Can you guess what the layout is?  I will not keep you in suspense.

Butterfly Gala Bundle, 150599

 

How cute is this?  And with FREE Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper (Botanical Butterfly DSP), you just cannot do better.  I chose the Lemon Lime Twist as the base color because I did this card with my Stamp Club.  Of all of the colors of butterflies, the Lemon Lime Twist was the most prevalent.  Since I used all of the two sheets with this pattern I went with simplest to match.

For the little butterflies, they also came from this same DSP, just a different sheet.  And I LOVE punches for quick and easy.  It was super simple for my ladies to punch the butterflies and add to their cards.

I hope you will give this layout a try.  Any DSP that Stampin’ Up! has would work in this  configuration.  I will suggest that you stamp  the underneath sentiment prior to adhering the paper.  Can you guess why I know that?  LOL!!

You Make Me Happy

My first card club of the year was yesterday.  It is so nice to get back in the groove and share what I love with friends!  I could not wait to share with them products from the new catalog.   You will be seeing these cards in the next couple of days.

For the first card I used the Meant To Be Bundle.  Oh My!!  Those dies are fabulous.  You really do need the Multi-purpose Adhesive Sheets for some of the hearts.  It makes adhering them super easy.  And the little step of adding the adhesive sheet before cutting is really no big deal.  For me, it is remembering to do it!  LOL!!

This card is not just for Valentine’s Day.  With the sentiment I used it could be for a variety of reasons, or the sentiment could easily be swapped for another.

 

Meant To Be Bundle, 150587

 

I LOVE everything about these lovely dies.  The stitching, the curly lace look, and the solid hearts (although I did not use one of those on this project), are all perfect for a variety of ideas.

I pulled my colors from this gorgeous DSP. It is the All My Love Designer Series Paper.  And for a change I used the main side instead of the reverse side 🙂  I did stamp the sentiment is Lovely Lipstick, which is also in this DSP.  I needed the darker color to show up on the blue.  I just could not bring myself to use Black on this card.

Color Combination:

 

 

This gorgeous ribbon is one of the Sale-A-Bration items.  This means it is FREE!  And you get five rolls of this beautiful ribbon simply by spending 50.00 on products.  Hint:  the Meant to Be Bundle is 53.00, so there you are!  This Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack contains 5 Yards each of Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, and Lemon Lime Twist !  WOW!!  That is 25 Yards of ribbon at No additional cost to you!!

Keep Calm

I have a Non Card for you today.  I had made an A-Frame Calendar post earlier in the week.  But after I had made it, but before posting, I saw quite a few other examples of it.  So I went back to my drawing board to try to find a different calendar.  I had a similar to this background card I had been playing with on my desk.  The lightbulb came on and I went from there. This idea for the base is not new by any means, but I have not seen one in some time.  So for a quick and easy calendar that can be personalized, in many ways, here you are.

 

Happy Tails, 148682

 

I just adore this Happy Tails stamp set!  And the Keep Calm is just perfect.  I remember a Host stamp set from several years ago that was a keep calm with multiple additions to it.  I want to say that to folks regularly !! LOL!!

This layout, as I said above was for a card, so it could easily be made as a card if you are not into making calendars.  Here is the base before I added the calendar and the small sticky note.

 

Sorry about the glare on the plastic holder.  This measures 4 X 6, which is not far off of an A2 card.  So into much change needed for a card.

There are not many items used here.  I did use the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out the puppy.  And I intentionally cut off the bottom to make more room to show the background.  I knew the calendar and sticky note would cover most of the pretty DSP, so I wanted to try to leave as much as I could uncovered.

The frame is a plastic / acrylic photo frame that has the bent edge.  I got it at Dollar Tree.  The calendar is from Taylored Expressions, and the sticky note is the 1 1/2 X 2 that I found in the drawer. 🙂  I need to be on the lookout for better colors of these.

Thank you so much for visiting.  I hope you will return on Monday.  All of the stamping supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.
