Coolest Friend

I really love when Stampin’ Up! goes an extra step in coordination of products.  With the debut of the 2nd part of Sale-A-Bration, there are a couple of SAB products that coordinate with Mini Catalog products.  That is a Win/Win for everyone.  Buy part and get a part free.

I am showcasing one of the stamps from the Mini Catalog.  I did not utilize the SAB matching paper in this card.  I did not have it on hand yet.

 

 

Stamp Bundle

The Penguin Place Bundle is so stinking cute!  There are so many things to love about it.  The first, for me anyway, is that it is a Punch Bundle!  I love punches and that makes the price point a bit lower as well.  Plus, there are anytime of year stamps to go along with the expected winter ones.  To be able to use a “winter” stamp set in the summer is a wonderful bonus to me.

All of the stamps I used on this card, with the exception of the party hat, are included in the stamp set.  The punch cuts the full penguin, if you stamped him.  Or it cuts a white piece with a larger black piece that you can layer to make your penguin.  And since the feet are punched separately, they can be placed like he/she is sitting or standing.  It is just as very versatile set!

Details

This card is a birthday card for a friend.  So I went with soft colors of Pool Party and Highland Heather.  I love the balloon in the stamp set for an occasion like a birthday.  The balloon is stamped directly onto the layer.  And the string is a separate stamp, and being photopolymer, it can be manipulated a bit as to its angles.

For the banner I wanted to tie in a bit of the black from the penguin.  I thought this was the place to do it.  Pairing that with the Pool Party softens even the black.  And using the Banners Pick A Punch makes the sentiment stand out even more.

Blue Dahlias

I hope you have your new Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  They are both awesome!  This is the first time for a 2 SAB.  I love the idea of spitting up this Free products event.  Today I am sharing one of the stamp sets that is available when you purchase $100.00 in product.  It is the Delicate Dahlias.

 

Stampin' Up!, Delicate Dahlias, Beauty of the Earth, Misty Moonlight, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

I love this Delicate Dahlias stamp set.  This flower is a two step stamp, but it also has the definition and shading in the filler stamp.  It really produces a lovely image.  I used Misty Moonlight Ink for the filler stamp and Night of Navy Ink for the outline.  They really work well together.

The sentiment is from the stamp set also.  I finished both the flower and the sentiment with a bit of bling.  These are the Blue Adhesive Gems.  The different sizes are great and definitely needed the larger one for the flower.

Paper

To compliment the blue flower I went with this great piece of DSP from the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper.  It is one of the most vibrant ones in the pack.  And the mix of blues and cajun craze are a perfect blend.

There are other great choices in the paper, but I went with the Misty Moonlight and Cajun Craze for my background and layers.  The sentiment and background are given added dimension with the Banner Pick A Punch.

Measurements

  • Misty Moonlight card base is cut 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 scored and folded at 4 1/4
  • Basic White layer is 5 1/4 X 4
  • DSP layer is 5 1/8 X 3 1/8
  • Cajun Craze flower layer is 3 1/8 X 3 1/8
  • Flower layer is 3 X 3
  • Sentiment layer of Cajun Craze is 3/4 X 2 3/4
  • Sentiment is 5/8 X 2 1/2

Grateful garden

Before I get to today’s project, I wanted to remind you it is the last day of the Designer Series Paper Sale!!  15% Off of select Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog.  The list is at the bottom of the post, so don’t forget to check it out.

Today I am using one of those gorgeous papers that are on sale.  It is the Beauty Of The Earth Designer Series Paper.  For the time of year with all of the green we have going on, I opted for the pattern with a lot of green in it.

 

Stampin' Up!, Beauty of the earth, Garden Wishes, Dandy Wishes, Grapevine

 

Products

For what appears to be a rather simple card, I used quite a lot of different products.  I did a mix & match on this one for sure.  The beginning of the card was this sheet of DSP.  The wood is the back side of the green trees and leaves.

To continue the nature look I added a dandelion.  Those things grow everywhere!!  This one is from the Garden Wishes and the matching Dandy Wishes Dies.  These were a Bundle, but now are only available individually.

The sentiment is from the Grapevine Bundle.  It fits perfectly inside the matching die.  And with the shape of the die, it does not need a layer behind it.

Layout

With the nature theme from the paper, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the back of the paper was the wood look.  After seeing that I wanted to use both sides.  This is a simple layout that enables me to do that without using a lot more of the DSP.  The DSP is cut 3 3/4 X 5.  I then cut it to 2 1/2 X 5 and 1 3/4 X 5.  The White layer behind is 4 X 5 1/4, so a normal layer size.

The finishing touches are very simple.  The ribbon is a wonderful one that I was thrilled to see carry over to the Annual Catalog.  It is Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim.  The ribbon looks thick, but is dreamy to work with.  And for the finishing touch I added some of the Genial Gems.  A large one is in the center of the Dandelion and two smaller ones with the sentiment.

Clever Cats Birthday

The upcoming Mini Catalog has awesome Fall and Winter products as expected.  But there are a few that include stamps that work anytime of year.  The Clever Cats is one of those stamp sets.  And since I love cats…..you know I had to have it!

 

Stampin' Up!, Sweets & Treats, Way To Goat, Ornate Frames, Clever Cats, Jackie Beers

Stamp Set(s)

Normally I would say I used a certain set at this point.  However for this card, I combined a few different sets  I started with the Clever Cats stamp set and this Fat Cat!  He reminds me of my male cat, who is a bit on the round side!!  I had just used the cake plate from Sweets & Treats stamp set and when I saw it, the idea was born.

With the cake plate, and a little masking, it allows Fat Cat’s tail to hang over perfectly.  This also led me to the sentiment.  I immediately thought of him eating, or pushing off, the cake.  I knew Way To Goat had the perfect sentiment.  The “I got you a cake” along with the inside sentiment “But I ate it”.  The perfect pairing for this card.

Paper and Details

I chose the greens for the card more from not having used green colors in a while.  The DSP is from Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.  It is paired with Just Jade cardstock and a thin layer of Smoky Slate cardstock.

To give the sentiment a bit more presence, I used the Ornate Frames to layer it.  I love the shape.  It is almost like a plaque on the wall.  And the cat would be happy to announce what he had done!  The finish of the 2021-2023 In Color Jewel is all this one needed.

Measurements

All of the products are listed in the supply list at the bottom of the post with the exception of the Clever Cats and Sweets & Treats sets.  The photos are not available yet.

  • The base card of Just Jade is cut 4 1/4 X 11, scored and folded at 5 1/4
  • The Smoky Slate layer is cut 3 7/8 X 5 1/8
  • The DSP layer is cut 3 3/4 X 5
  • The front Smoky Slate layer is cut 2 1/2 X 3 1/8
  • The stamped cat layer is cut to 2 3/8 X 3
