Tea Together

The Tea Together and Tea Time Dies were never a bundle but are a super pairing of products.   It gives a very classic scene for a card.

 

 

I paired the sweet products with the softest of the Stampin’ Up! colors.  It is the Purple Posy.  Sadly, there are still failed results for the Purple Posy Ink.  So Stampin’ Up!, with their great care for quality, has decided to give up on the Purple Posy Ink.  All of the other Purple Posy products will still be available.  The Stampin’ Blends works beautifully as you can see in the tea cup.

I stamped the tea cup in Highland Heather and then colored parts with the Purple Posy Stampin’ Blend Light.  The flower is stamped in Smoky Slate and colored with the Purple Posy, Light Highland Heather, and Light Old Olive Blends.

The tag is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthdays and is puched using the Classic Label Punch.  After punching, I put the one end back into the edge of the punch to make the flagged end.

The background designer paper is from the In Color Designer Series Paper for 2019-2021.  I used two different patterns of the Purple Posy DSP.

Thank you very much for checking in today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another new project.

Mosaic Single Layer Card

 

A challenge I recently participated in was to do a Single Layer Card.  That means to stamp directly on the folded base of the card.  You can add an embellishment, but no other layers.  These can be hard to do when you are accustomed to multiples layers plus a sentiment layer.  I found a great stamp set to use though.

 

 

I chose the Memorable Mosaic stamp set and used the Weeping Willow looking tree.   I love the definition these stamps give.  I stamped the top with Mint Macaron Ink and it looks like it is two different shades of color.  It is not, it is the stamp itself.  LOVE!!!!  The tree trunk is the same way.  It is stamped in Soft Suede Ink.

The sentiment is from the stamp set Here’s A Card.  I love that wording.  I believe I will turn this card into a 3 X 3 with the same sentiment and use them as Random Acts of Kindness cards to hand out.

The only embellishments are the Noble Peacock Embellishments.  The color compliments the Mint Macaron of the leaves.

Crafty Birthday

When looking through the stamp sets for a birthday idea for a stamping friend, I found the perfect set – or sets!  What is better than It Starts With Art and Crafting Forever.  A win / win.

 

Stampin' Up!, It Starts With Art, Crating Forever, Jackie Beers

 

This card does not scream “Birthday” so it could be for any occasion needed for a crafting or stamping friend.  I was thrilled with how the two stamp sets paired so well together.   I may have even gone a bit overboard on all the cuteness.

I used the It Starts With Art Bundle (stamps and dies), along with stamps from Crafting Forever.  I used the Button Embossing Folder as the background.  The embossed and die cut button is from the bundle and has a bow from Baker’s Twine as the string.  The ribbon looking strip across the bottom is from the bundle as well.

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

Before I go, I wanted to give you my thoughts on the New Paper Cutter.  I LOVE IT!!!!  And I am not just saying that because I want you to purchase it when it becomes available to customers.  The cutting blades are awesome.  They are very sharp and require no pressure when sliding the blade.  I have had to work on that part.  The only thing to get used to is the bar itself.  It locks into place when it is closed.  I had to play with it a bit to figure out how to easily open it.  But I think it gets easier the more used and as I get used to the proper way to open it.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you are having a good start to your week.  Please come back tomorrow for another new project.

Sailing Home

I have taken a break from the different holiday cards and gone back to the Annual Catalog again.  I am playing with the Sailing Home and the High Tide stamp sets.  They both work wonderfully together.

 

Stampin' Up!, Sailing Home, High Tide, Waterfront, Jackie Beers

 

I paired the Sailing Home stamp set lighthouse and  birds with the light from the High Tide stamp set.  They are stamped in Gray Granite and Smoky Slate with Daffodil Delight as the Light.  To enhance the simple stamps, I layered the image on the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

The sentiment is from the Waterfront stamp set.  I wanted something simple and the “friend” fit the bill perfectly.  It is layered using the Layering Circles Dies and tied on with the Night of Navy and Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will give this layout a try.  It is a quick and easy one that would be very easy to make multiples of, or to dress up with a few more embellishments.

Fall Double Z Card

I am sharing more of Stampin’ Up!s beautiful Designer Series Paper today.  And I have added some gorgeous dies that you will really want to use for Fall.  Fall is right around the corner, and then holidays, Oh My!!!  But let’s start with Fall.

 

Stampin' Up!, Gathered Leaves Dies, Waterfront, Colorful Seasons Dies, Jackie Beers, Come To Gather DSP

And here is the side view of the Double Z Fold.

 

 

I love how this card stands so perfectly.  I made one of these cards almost a year ago.  You can view that card HERE.  It was a Fall card as well.

I used the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper for this card.  I paired it with Merry Merlot Card Stock, but then added the Thick Whisper White to brighten it a bit.  The white leaves are cut from the Seasonal Layers Dies.  The sentiment I chose , which is from the Waterfront set, fit perfectly in the one.  The solid Cajun Craze leaves are from the Gathered Leaves Dies in the upcoming Holiday catalog.  They are a die and embossed at the same time type die.  I LOVE them!!

The only extras I added were the Calypso Coral Satin Ribbon and the one Holiday Rhinestone on the bottom white leaf.  I felt it needed a touch of bling.

I hope you liked today’s project.  And I hope you will return tomorrow.  I have the measurements listed just below here and the supplies are at the bottom of the post.

 

Measurements:  NOTE: the measurements for the linked card are a tad different.

  • Base 4 1/4 X 11 folded in half
  • Base of Z in Whisper White 4 X 10 1/4, scored at 2 1/2 & 5
  • DSP is large 3 3/4 X 5, and 2 of the small at 3 3/4 X 2 1/4

Together

Today’s project is a cute little card that uses unexpected stamp sets.  I adore humorous stamp sets.  Sometimes they are just the perfect way to deliver a message.

 

I think this chick is adorable.  Plus I don’t know if you have noticed all of the beautiful paper in the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper.  I have used it for a couple of cards recently.  It just seems to match the theme of my card.

The chick is from the Birds of A Feather stamp set in the upcoming Holiday Catalog.  It has birds that fit a variety of holiday occasions.  For today’s card I paired it with a sentiment from a different Holiday Catalog set titled Gather Together.  You may remember I used that set last week for the Fall/Pumpkin card.  You are getting sneak peeks at the great products coming up in a little over a week.

I used the Stitched Nested Labels die to showcase the chick.  I cut off the top of it straight and it makes the perfect banner.  I used some creative license on the coloring of the bird.  To tie that to the DSP, I used the Nature’s Twine wrapped around the banner.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you will return on Monday for another week of new products!
