You’re The Best

I am mixing old products with some new pieces in today’s card.  I love doing that.  It is sort of a “one last spin” with some of the retiring products.

 

I wish I could say that I did something to create that gorgeous lace layer!!  But I cannot.  It is a FABULOUS set of cards and envelopes that are all cut for you.  They are just waiting for you to choose the color of card stock or designer series paper to place behind the lace look.  It also comes in a gorgeous metal tin.  It is named the Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards In A Tin.  The envelope is shown here.  I should have shown the back flap of the envelope.  It is a pretty scalloped flap.

I chose Coastal Cabana for the color to show through the lace.  I used a rolled up glue dot in each corner to adhere it to the laser cut front.  The Flirty Flamingo Doily is part of a pack of 4 colors of doilies.  Perfectly named Colored Doilies!!  They are retiring at the end of the month.  I thought it worked wonderfully here though.

I also used the retiring 1 1/4″ Circle Punch to punch out the sentiment from Very Vanilla card stock.  I failed to mention that the cards and envelopes are Very Vanilla.  Sorry about that.

To adhere the doily, I placed a glue dot in the center of the lace layer, then placed the doily over top.  The sentiment is layered with Stampin’ Dimensionals to raise it.  The dimensional also help in adhering the doily.  I topped it off with three Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, another retiring product.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I really appreciate it.  Please come back tomorrow for another new sneak peek of products.

Fancy Fold Birthday

I am having technical difficulties, so sorry I’ve been delayed in my posts.  Some of you early risers may be wondering where I have been!  Thank you for hanging with me.

If you follow me very often, you know I LOVE folds in my cards.  Various folds are my favorite cards to make.  So today I have another great fold that is super simple to do.  And a great way to use those leftover pieces of DSP.  A win/win to me:)

Sorry for the finger in the photo!  It wanted to open up and not be photographed.  Here is the card opened also.

 

Stampin' Up!, stampin up, Jackie Beers, #simplestamping, needle and thread

 

I really like this simple fold and it really showcases the designer series paper.  The white section could be DSP as well.  You could add your sentiment and signature on the panel just above that spot, where I have the small flowers DSP.  I wanted to use more of the stamps from the set so chose to have the large white area.  The “stitching” is a nice touch and so easy to line up being the photopolymer stamps.  I did not get it exactly centered but am happy with how they overlapped.

I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color the spray of leaves behind the main flower on the front.  They are not listed in the supply list since you cannot purchase them individually.  I really hate that!!

I have the measurements listed below.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you have a great day and will return tomorrow.

Loyal & True

This week is National Police Week.  The Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington DC is the center of the ceremonies that will be held.  Sadly there will be way too many names added to the memorial wall again this year.

Today’s card is a simple card to honor all Law Enforcement Officers.

 

 

I am sad to see this Loyal & True stamp set and the military stamp set retire this catalog.  It will stay with me however.

For today’s card I kept it very simple and clean.  The base is Night of Navy card stock and the Blue Line is Blueberry Bushel.  Other than the main piece, I just added the Loyal & True along with the My Hero.  The only thing raised is the center blue heart.  I fussy cut it and raised it with a dimensional.  I used the Crushed Curry and Blueberry Bushel Stampin’ Write Markers to color the badge.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great beginning to your week and will return tomorrow.

Cactus Bling

Today’s card is a CASE of a card I received in a swap with other PALs at OnStage in  Charlotte.  Unfortunately the maker’s card was not in the envelope, so I do not know who to give credit to for this cute card.

Flowering Desert, 148700

I gave the cactus a little flower on it’s head and added a touch of bling.  Looking at it now though, it almost looks like a much too small little hat!!  LOL!!  I am going to stick with it being a flower.

The background is the Subtle Embossing Folder which gives just enough texture without overdoing it.  I love the embossing folder for a variety of reasons.  The cactus , flowers, grass are a variety of greens and Mango Melody.

I added the ribbon in Calypso Coral with the layered sentiment for some depth.  The sentiment received a flower and bling to match the cactus.  This was a fun card to make!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I really like this stamp set and think it was under showcased.  It has the potential for some really sweet cards.  Unfortunately it is on the retiring list.

Double Pocket Fold for Pals May Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ May  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects with “More Than One Score.” You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

My “more than one score” card is a Double Pocket Card.  It has a few scores and a few folds, but it needs very little adhesive to hold it together.  The added bonus is that it can be made in quite a few sizes.  I made mine today to hold a tea bag and a note card.  Of course, I used the retiring Tea Room Designer Series Paper to go with the tea bag!

 

Stampin' Up!, Jackie Beers, Tea Room, Frosted Bouquet, Free As A Bird

Tea Room Designer Series Paper, 146894

 

I mixed and match with my products used.  I have the Tea Room DSP, which is retiring, the Frosted Bouquet Framelits, which are carrying over, and the Free As A Bird stamp set, which is new for the upcoming catalog.  One of the best about Stampin’ Up! products is that they mix and match so well.

I got this inspiration from a Splitcoast tutorial from Claudia Rosa.  It was from several years ago.  I played around with paper size until I got what actually fit the tea bag.  For an unknown reason, that was my original idea for it!

Here is the card pulled out.  I used the Detailed Trio Punch to make the ribbon hole.  It is just the perfect size!

 

 

I should have mentioned above that my card is 4 X 4.  So with the tea bag adding some thickness, it would still fit into a regular size envelope.  At the bottom of my post, along with the supply list, I will add the directions on how to fold this.  It is super easy, and I have some photos to go along.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, June 12, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Anything with Wings” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

Waterfront Wishing You Well

Today’s card is one I made for a very special person.  A friend’s son is in the military and was injured pretty severely.  He is back in the U.S. and has already undergone several surgeries, with more to come. There is not much I can do for him or the family.  But sending a card is right up my alley.  Even if I am a bit late in doing so.  Please put this young man in your prayers if you would.

So here is the card.

Stampin' Up!, Jackie Beers, Waterfront, Wishing You Well, More Than Words

Waterfront, 146386

 

I love this font on the Wishing You Well.  It is from the Wishing You Well stamp set.  Although I should have left a white space for it.  The Shaded Spruce is sort of covering it.  Also, I failed to mention the main set I used is the Waterfront stamp set.

Here is the inside piece.

 

 

This gorgeous sentiment is from the More Than Words stamp set.  It is on the retiring list, but I think it will be hanging around my house a bit longer!
