Birds Eye Note

The card I am sharing today is a mixture from the different catalogs.  The Birds Eye View stamp set is the star.  I needed a card for my eye doctor and the “spectacles” just seemed the perfect stamp.

Stamps

The Bird’s Eye View with the glasses was the immediate thought I had for this card.  I always love the animal stamps and the glasses simply put this one over the top for me.  The owl, at least I hope that is what this bird is supposed to be, is stamped with Early Espresso Ink and then colored with different Stampin’ Blends.

The sentiment is from the Very Best Occasions.  This is a wonderful set with a variety of sentiments we tend to need.  I love the mix of fonts as well.  And it is a perfect size.

Dies and Punches

The fun owl was die cut using two from the Thoughtful Expressions Die set.  I love this design and the fact there are several different sizes for layer makes it a definite for me.  Plus this is a more unique shape for a circle.  And that is always nice.  I hope you will give a second look at these dies.  And the matching stamp set is great, I just did not use it today.

The sentiment is punched using my favorite punch.  That is the Double Oval Punch.  This is the smaller of the two ovals.  I had intended to use both sizes, but the single seemed to be enough.  Especially with this being a masculine card, I did not want to overwhelm with the shapes.

Papers and Finishes

The beautiful DSP is from the Poetic Expressions Designer Series Paper. This paper has great colors and designs, like this one, that are great for any occasion.  I love the mix of Boho Blue and Mossy Meadow in this piece.  So I paired it with the Boho Blue card base and layer.  The darker Mossy Meadow for the layer grounds the softer colors.  And with a thin border, it helps the DSP to pop.

For the finish I added a strip of the Mossy Meadow to have a landing for the sentiment and the owl layers.  Sometimes card stock works just as well as a ribbon.  And to finish the card I added a trio of the Adhesive Backed Cork Rounds.  These are so unique and the perfect touch for a variety of cards.

A Note

Good Morning everyone.  I am late posting today and I apologize to my early morning followers.  The post that I thought I scheduled last night did not post.  That is because I put the wrong date! DUH!!!  And then the internet was out.  So here we are.

Today’s card is a really quick and easy one.  It is all about the Flight & Airy DSP from Sale-A-Bration.  I love sharing how to make quick and simple cards.

 

Stampin' Up!, Flight and Airy, Notes of Nature, Bakers Twine 3 color pack, Pecan Pie, Jackie Beers

 

Papers

This card is all about the papers for sure.  The focal bird piece is fussy cut from a piece of DSP from the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper.  There are a couple of sheets with bird images as well as several more general pieces on the back.  I do not mind fussy cutting and this one was pretty quick to do.  There are two important things about fussy cutting.  First is to have sharp scissors.  And our Paper Snips from SU are awesome.  The second tip is to turn the paper and not your scissors.  This keeps the line going smoothly without the stop and start marks.

There are only two sheets of the DSP used here.  The bird is the also the opposite side of the greenery layer.  And I love the Pecan Pie hexagonish design.  That may not be correct, or even a word.  But I love that design!  It brings out the branch beneath the bird.  And the Pecan Pie card base really helps to pull out that brown.

Stamping

This being a very quick card, there is only the sentiment that is stamped on the front of the card.  This sweet “just a little note” seemed to fit with the bird.  I hope you catch the humor there.  The sentiment is from the Notes of Nature stamp set.  It is another great set, and bundle, in the Mini Catalog.  There are wonderful background builder stamps with that set.

Finishes

To finish this card I added some of the Lemon Lolly  Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Three Color Pack, also in the Mini Catalog.  I wanted to bring out a bright color and the chest of the bird with that pop of yellow seemed perfect.  And I love Bakers Twine for creating small bows.  To add to that, I added a trio of Adhesive Backed Solid Gems from the Annual Catalog.

I appreciate you stopping by today!!

Beary Tag

The card I have for you today is a gift card holder.  It is a similar one to the card from Friday, and features the Beary Cute stamp set.

The card

This card is a gift card holder, like the one from Friday.  Here is a look at Friday in case you missed it.  And here is the open view of this card.

 

 

Papers

The papers used are the largest part of this card.  It began with Night of Navy card stock that is 11 X 4 1/4 and scored at 1 1/2 and 5 1/2.  Those are the important measurements.  After that you can decorate as you see fit.  I added the lovely Beary Christmas Designer Series Paper.  Those packages on the front are a tad busy, but makes me think of anticipation of what is inside!!  I am a kid at heart with gifts!!

The inside green paper is also from the same Beary Christmas DSP.  As is the little bear on the inside by the sentiment.  It is fussy cut from a scrap piece.  To add some contrast to the front, and match the inside, I used Old Olive for the tag.

Stamps

All of the stamped images are from the Beary Cute stamp set.  The bear is not the one that matches the Punch, which is part of the Beary Cute Bundle.  So I fussy cut him as well.  It is an easy cut.  And I do not mind fussy cutting.  The sentiment is included in the set also.  It was intended as a straight line, like it stamps.  But it just would not work that way.  So I improvised and cut it in half.

Tag

This perfectly sized tag is the new Sparkling Snowflake Tag Topper punch.  I love the little snowflake at the top.  But this could be used as other than a Winter tag I think.  It is a bit difficult to see, but I ran the red ribbon through the lower opening of the snowflake and down the front of the tag.  Then it comes up the back and meets again at the top.  The bow is separate and added with a glue dot.  I did not realize that the bear and sentiment would almost totally cover the ribbon.  It does look really cute wrapped around that way.

To finish the tag and the card, I added a touch of bling.  This is my normal, but I was very restrained today.  The paper is so busy that I knew bling would get lost on the DSP.  So I ended with a single Adhesive Glitter Sequin in matching blue for the bear’s scarf.  The size and glitter adds just the right amount of bling!

Thank you for stopping by today!!

From Me

The first thing I want to say is to CHECK OUT THE CLEARANCE RACK!  It has been updated again with some great discounts.

Today’s card is a Festive & Fun one.  That is the set used and a favorite with the adorable animals.  This one is To You From Me!

 

Stampin' Up!, Festive Fun, Merriest Trees Dies, Joy of Christmas, Blooming Pearls, Jackie Beers

Stamps

The Festive & Fun stamp set is one I have used a few times.  The animals in this set are precious.  And you know I love the cute animal images.  This one I call Mr. Moose.  There was a large moose several years ago that I adored.  This one is a much smaller version but just as cute.  And him serving cake is so sweet.

The sentiment is from the stamp set also.  There is more to it than what is shown. I cut off the first part to make it fit better and it did not alter the sound of the sentiment.

Note:   I have been embossing recently and am loving it.  Previously I would never get a good image.  Well……my Versamark Ink was really old and did not improve with re-inking.  So I bought a new one.  And it is a world of difference.  The pads last a long time, but this was one I bought maybe 20 years ago.  Sometimes it is not me and actually is a problem with the tool.  Now I am loving embossing again.  The bolder and brighter sentiment is always a good thing.

Papers

The fun plaid papers are from the Joy of Christmas Designer series Paper.  I love plaid and being able to pair both the Shaded Spruce and Real Red plaid together was a good thing.  Sadly this DSP is sold out.  I apologize, but if you have it then you are good to go.  And if not then there are tons of other papers that will work just as well. And I know everyone is not a fan of plaid.

The card base is Shaded Spruce and I added a Real Red tag behind the Shaded Spruce Plaid tag.  To help the colors separate and to compliment Mr. Moose, I added a layer of Wild Wheat.  This is such a versatile color in my opinion.

Finishes

The layers for this card are normal layers so I added the circle for Mr. Moose.  He is cut using the 2 3/8″ Circle Punch.  It is a tiny bit smaller than him.  But the bottom is covered by the sentiment anyway.  My favorite parts are the tags!  I love this tag.  It is a perfect size for gift tags or layers like this.  The Merriest Trees Dies is where it is from.  And I have said it before, but I am so thrilled that this bundle is carrying over.  I love those trees, but the tag is my favorite.

The sentiment I mentioned earlier.  It is simply fussy cut and raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals over the bottom of the circle.  Since I cut off the first couple of words it was simpler to just cut a rectangle and leave it at that.  The embossing makes it pop.

The final touch is the bling!  These are the Blooming Pearls embellishments.  There are a variety of colors but I chose the greenish ones.  They are scattered on the tag and a third one on the sentiment.

Thank you for visiting today!!!

Fluffy Birthday

Today’s card is one of the new Online Exclusives.  It is the Fluffiest Friends stamp set. Actually it is a bundle.  However I went with a simple card to show off the cuteness of the fluffy friend.

 

Stampin' Up!, Fluffiest Friends, Garden Walk, adhesive backed dragonflies & birds, Jackie Beers

 

Stamp set

The Fluffiest Friend was a set that I knew was coming to me immediately.  I love all of the “critter” sets and this one is especially adorable.  The fact that it is a Die Bundle is even better.  Although I opted to do a single layer and not die cut for this one.  There are six critters with a few extra stamps.  Since I am a cat person, I had to begin with this one.

The adorable cat is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored with a variety of Stampin’ Blends.  All of these are listed in the supply list at the bottom of the post.  I also added some of the additional flowers to the bottom.  They match the flower she is holding.

Papers

The papers used are pulled from the DSP of course.  And this DSP is one that I have not used a lot of.  It is the Garden Walk Designer Series Paper.  After using it here, I wondered why I have not used it!  I love these papers.  The colors in these two sheets are what I focused on in card base and my coloring.  The Calypso Coral, Lost Lagoon and Shaded Spruce were the most prominent.

Extra

The extras on this card are a bit different.  I generally do not do two layers of DSP.  They are as much the focal point as the fluffy kitty.  But I loved how they compliment each other.  And the Bling, which there must be, is the new Adhesive Backed Dragonflies & Birds embellishments.  They are a sneak peek from the upcoming Mini Catalog in January.

 

Seasonal Sale

If you did not take advantage of the Seasonal Sale today, you still have two more days of the sale prices.  However, there are quite a few items that are on low inventory!!!  So do not wait until the last minute.  Everyone is filling in their ink collections, and getting the envelopes for Christmas Cards, as well as card stock and DSP.  All of this is discounted.  See below for all of the details.

Bear Gifting

The card I have to show today is a really quick and simple fun fold.  This one includes the Beary Cute Bundle and the Walk In The Forest DSP.  A perfect pairing for Christmas.

 

Stampin' Up!, Beary Cute, A Walk In The Forest, Azure Afternoon, Balmy Blue, Jackie Beers

 

Here is the open view to see how simple this cute card is.

 

 

Fold

This fold is only one extra score line, a mountain and valley fold,  into a wonderful card.  I have shared this same fold using the Winter Meadow products previously.  You can see that card HERE.  

The card begins as a 4 1/4 X 11 piece of Thick White card stock.  Then score at 4 and 6 3/4.  The top section when folded is the smaller of the two end panels.  Because the base is Basic White, I did not add additional layers to that.  The top piece of DSP is cut 4 X 3 3/4 and the bottom one is 4 X 4.  The middle Basic White section for you to write is 4 X 2 1/2.  And the Basic White sentiment is 2 3/4 X 1 3/4.  That is all you need!

Papers

To continue the quick and easy theme, this card uses very little paper.  There is the card base and a couple extra pieces of Basic White.  This allows the beautiful DSP to shine.  I love this A Walk In The Forest Designer Series Paper.  It can be seen on page 4 & 5 of the Mini Catalog.  This paper is the Stampin’ Up! Making A Difference set for this catalog.  I love they are doing paper in place of a stamp set.  And especially when it is such versatile paper!

Stamp Bundle

The Beary Cute Bundle is simply adorable!  I love the bear.  As I have mentioned before, it reminds me of the Coca Cola Bears from many years ago.  These bears have so many possibilities.  But I loved them giving a gift.

To create the scene, I used a piece of Basic White the same width as the DSP (4″ and probably 5″ tall).  I left room to have some “snow” at the bottom, and stamped the sitting bear on the left side.  She is stamped with Smoky Slate Ink and with an added Azure Afternoon scarf.  Using my Paper Snips, I cut some wavy “snow” lines and then around the bear.  The little gift and standing bear were stamped in the cut away of the snow.  I colored the gift with Azure Afternoon Stampin’ Blends.  The punch was used to cut the standing bear and the gift was fussy cut.  They are then added to my little scene with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment layer is also from the stamp set.  It is stamped using Azure Afternoon also.  As is the Merry Christmas on the top DSP.  I personally love to stamp on DSP.  There are some who say they are afraid to make a mistake.  My rules are to go for it!!  And I added just the little gift to the center White section where you would sign the card.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you will give this fun fold a try.  It is quick and easy, and uses very little DSP.
