Friendship

Today’s card is a sweet Friendship or Valentine card.  The Country Bouquet Bundle is an awesome one.  I love the colors of the Designer Series paper.  It is a happy paper for sure.

 

Stampin' Up!, Country Bouquet, Country Floral, Heart Punch Pack, Heart Pearls, Jackie Beers

 

Paper

This beautiful DSP is the Country Floral Designer Series Paper.  The colors and designs are somewhat Country, as the name suggests.  But they are wonderful together and have a different sort of mix.  I love the unexpected bicycle print on the larger piece I used.  The vertical strip of Balmy Blue DSP is from the same pack of papers.  And of course, all of my other color choices came from the bicycle print.

Stamps

I do have to say that the Country Bouquet Punch is out of stock until April.  However, you can still purchase the stamp set.  The sentiment and stamps are wonderful and since it is a punch containing the two hearts, you could quite easily cut them out.  I stamped and then cut these two hearts.  The left and right ones are from the set.  As is the sentiment.

Punches

As I said, the Country Bouquet Punch is not in stock, but there are other heart punches.  For the center heart with the sentiment, I used the Heart Punch Pack.  This is the smaller of the two hearts.  I believe it fits perfectly here between the two curvy hearts.

Finishes

To complete the card, I chose the Sweet Sorbet as the background for the bicycle print.  That is the color I used to stamp the two hearts also.  And since there are hearts in the strip of Balmy Blue DSP, I added one more.  The Heart Pearls are a wonderful embellishment to have on hand.  They fit in here perfectly.

Love Cats

Cats can be the sweet, playful, and so funny, which is why I love them.  Not to say they cannot be a pain sometimes!  But if there is a cat stamp I must have it.  Today’s card is using the Love Cats stamp set.  And I do love these guys.

 

Stampin' Up!, Love Cats, Flowers & More, Layering Circles, Decorative Circles, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

This cat is definitely in the Love category.  I have two sisters who both love to roll in the floor and play.  This image fits them perfectly.  The Love Cats set has three cat images and fun saying to go with each one.  I have used the hanging out cat previously.  You can see it HERE.   Both the cat and the sentiment are stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Papers

To continue the Fun theme, I went with a bright and happy piece of DSP.  This sheet is from the Flowers & More Designer Series Paper.  It is another of the multi-packs of paper that is a Host item in the Mini Catalog.  I love the multi-packs for making multiples of one card or 3D projects.  Sometimes you need more than two sheets of one pattern.

As usual I picked the DSP first.  Then I found colors in the paper that I thought would go with my image.  The card base and cat layer are Balmy Blue with the heart and layer in Polished Pink.  I covered the bases for a sweetheart card for guys or gals.

Extras

To give some added dimension I used the Decorative Label Punch as the background for the kitty.  Just having a different shape behind the circle really pops.  The circle is cut using the Layering Circles Dies.  If you still have circle punches,  this is about 2″.

And for the finishing touch I used the new Pastel Sequins.  To not play favorites, I used both pink and blue there also.  These sequins are really nice and come in two different sizes.  I love that.

A Hug

Designer Series Paper is a quick and easy way to begin a card.  The one I have to share today is All about the DSP.  It could not be easier.

 

Stampin' Up!, Favored Flowers, Happy Labels, Jackie Beers

 

Paper

Do you see why I said this was all about the DSP?  These two pieces of the Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper are the card!  Generally I do not use a lot of black, or at least not to this extent.  I tend to use it as a thin background layer.  But this floral paper really pops with the black  background.  And the Fresh Freesia is so elegant looking on both of the pieces I used.

Because the DSP is so vibrant, I used Thick Basic White card stock for the card base.  For a bit of a different look, I cut off 1 1/2 ” off the front to show off the second piece of DSP.  With the Fresh Freesia layers everything blends together perfectly.

Stamp Bundle

I really love sentiments!  And the Happy Labels Bundle is a sentiment stamp set with a great label Pick A Punch to go with it.  This sweet sentiment is perfect for most any time I believe.  And the fun punch label adds some extra detail to the bottom section.  The punch has two different “ticket” border edges.  The second is a smaller perforation than the one I used here.

On a side note, the Happy Labels is a stamp set that can be purchased in either Photopolymer or Cling.  Cling is the red rubber.  So please pay attention when ordering to get the material you want.  There are a few sets in the Mini Catalog  that give your this option to choose.

Finishes

Even with the fun fold and the layers, this is really a simple card with the DSP doing most of the work.  And as beautiful as it is, it still needed some bling!  One of the many things I love about the Stampin’ Blends is that you can turn a pearl or rhinestone into whatever color you may want.  I used the Pearls with the Dark Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blend.  When you color the pearl it dries almost instantly and does not come off on your hand or the card.  I love it!!

Oh Happy Day

The project I have to share with you today is the tag I made to accompany my Paper Shares.  I also used the tag to make a card since they were so darn cute!

 

Stampin' Up!, Playing In The Rain, Fabulous Frames, Stylish Shapes, Rain or Shine, Glossy Dots, Jackie Beers

 

Papers

This card, and the tags, are all about the paper.  The center of the card is the actual tag.  I fussy cut the images from the piece of Rain Or Shine Designer Series Paper containing these characters.  There are turtles, dogs, and the pig holding umbrellas.  For the background I used a second piece from the paper pack with the rain drops. Then when I decided to make a card from an extra tag, I added a third piece of the DSP.  I felt the umbrellas and rain sheet was the perfect finishing layer.  And that doesn’t mention all of the beautiful color to choose from in these papers.

Stamps

The stamp set used is the Playing In The Rain and it is a Bundle.  It was a favorite as soon as I saw it.  I love any of the animal sets Stampin’ Up! creates because the artists give the animals such character!  The Dies from the bundle were not used as they do not include these guys with the umbrellas.  So all I used was the sentiment stamp.  How appropriate though that Oh Happy Day is what you see when your Paper Shares arrive!  Or this card even.  Although I am really over all the rain we have had this winter.

Dies and Finishes

Even though I did not use the Playing In The Rain Dies, I did use two other Die sets.  The sentiment is using the Stylish Shapes Dies and the largest of the banners.  I needed the largest for the height, but did not need very much width.  All that took was my Paper Trimmer to cut off where I needed and it becomes a little flag.

The second Die set is the Fabulous Frames Dies.  To get the awesome frame around the rain scene, I used the largest of those frames in Mango Melody.  The details are wonderful on this one.  After everything was placed, I added a layer of Balmy Blue and rounded the corners.  Any corner rounder that you have will work.  There is not one from SU that is current.  But I felt the corners needed rounding!  And the final touch is the single Glossy Dots on the sentiment.

Thank you for visiting today!!

Triple Step Fold for Fun Fold Blog Hop

 

Today is the monthly Fun Fold Blog Hop.  There are several of us who love making Fun Fold cards.  You can find easy ones on up to a bit more effort, but hopefully you will find one that you particularly like.  Or more than one!!

My Fun Fold card for today is a Triple Step card.  At least that is what I am calling it.  I will say I cased this from a European Demonstrator that I cannot find the name.  However, I did change measurements as the conversion from Metric to Imperial was not at all working,  I also altered the assembly of the pieces to be very simple.  I hope you like the outcome!

 

Stampin' Up!, Playing In The Rain, Happy Labels Punch, Easter Bunny, Dandy Designs, Jackie Beers

 

Parts

Instead of explaining all aspects as I usually do, I have a PDF of directions for you.  They include everything you need.  I will say that one of the things I particularly like about this card is that the larger of the lower mountain folds contains a pretty large piece of White paper.  Generally on these type folds there is very little space for an inside sentiment and your writing. This one has plenty of room!

There is a side view included in the PDF so you can see the three steps and how the top step makes a tent over the others.  Click HERE to access the PDF.

 

Paper

I do want to emphasis this DSP.  It is from the Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper as a Free With $100.00 purchase in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  There are 48 sheets, 4 each of 12 double sided designs.  And they are awesome.

The pieces I used are actually the front and back of one piece.  And it took maybe a 1/4 of one 12X12 sheet.  That is a winner in my book.  Not to consider that this is actually a very easy card to do.

Stamps

The fun turtle stamp is from the Playing In The Rain stamp bundle.  He is stamped and then die cut using the matching die with the same name!  Have you noticed all of the bundles in the Mini Catalog have the same name for the stamp set and dies / or punches?  Yay!!!

Pearl

Today’s card is my first play with the Seaside Bay Bundle.  I did a fairly quick and simple one and now love this set.  It is paired with the By The Bay Designer Series Paper.

 

Stampin' Up!, Seaside Bay, By The Bay, Layering Circles, Decorative Circle, Vellum, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps and Dies

As I said, this is the Seaside Bay Bundle.  It is a stamp and Dies bundle with quite a lot of both included.  To keep this card fairly simple, I only used the Clam shell.  It is stamped and die cut using Sahara Sand ink.  The sentiment is from the set also.  It is stamped and cut using the Layering Circles Dies.

Do you notice the shine inside the clam shell?  This is a wonderful bonus!  There are Flat Adhesive Pearls in this Suite of products.  They are so perfect , as well as add bling, to this set.  I love them!!

Papers

There are more than normal papers on this card.  The card base is Night of Navy card stock with a layer of Sahara Sand.  Next is a layer of Vellum that I wadded up in my hand and then spread back out.  I like the marks the creases leave.  It gives some added definition and texture to the card.

For the next layer I went with Balmy Blue to bring out the water color in the shells.  The DSP of shells is from the By The Bay Designer Series Paper.  This is a 6X6 pack of paper that has quite a lot of metallic to it.  And a lot of beachy themes.  The last paper is the Decorative Circle Punch piece.  It is a back side of one of the papers included in Awash In Beauty Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog.  This piece was on my desk and I happened to see this textured pink look.  It was perfect for this card.
