Young and Cool

As awesome as the New Annual Catalog is, there are still great products available in the current Mini Catalog.  I have combined the sets Catch You Later, Bragworthy, and Artfully Layered together for a fun card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Catch You Later, Bragworthy, Artfully Layered, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

These monkeys are so fun!  I immediately think of hanging out with friends.  So that is the direction I went.  And of course the sentiment takes it the same direction.  Yes, I did use three different stamp sets to create this fun card.  The monkeys and sentiment are from the Catch You Later stamp set.  It is full of similar fun images and sentiments.  And the background I created was using the Artfully Layered set with the large leaf and smaller heart leaves.

And to share the third stamp set, the Bragworthy set, here is a view of the inside.  It screams “Old Friends” to me!

 

 

I realize that this sentiment does not fit everyone.  But it definitely works with me and my friends!  This stamp set includes six unique and fun sentiments for different occasions.

Colors

To carry the outdoors theme I wanted a green color.  But instead ended up with a blue / green by using Bermuda Bay.  This is an awesome color that I use often.  And to pair with the monkeys’ colors, I added the layer of Crumb Cake.  For the stamped backgrounds I did tone on tone for both Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake.  The Crumb Cake images are stamped repeatedly before re-inking.

Embellishments

To give some added emphasis for the sentiment, I used the Double Oval Punch for a bit of an extra layer.  And as a more masculine “bling”, I used the New Brushed Metallic Adhesive Dots.  By adding one to each of the focal layers it brings them together.  And I know I generally do at least three of my blings.  This card just did not like adding a third one.

Birthday Bear

I have combined three great products for today’s card.  The star is the Wildlife Wonder bear paired with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder and New Horizon DSP.  A simple and pretty card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Wildlife Wonder, New horizon, Tasteful Textile, Jackie Beers

Stamps

This beautiful bear is from the Wildlife Wonder stamp set, as are all of the stamps used here.  The details on the bear really give the illusion of movement.  And the shadow at the base adds to it.  For a bit of realism, and depth, I added the single wildflower.  Of course the sentiment is one of the stars.  And if you know me, you know that I love a mix of fonts.  This one is perfect and a great size.

Embossed

The Tasteful Textiles Embossing Folder has always been a favorite.  It adds subtle texture.  But if stamped on prior to embossing it gives the look of a canvas.  On this card I went with the Thick Basic White, stamped and then embossed.  And it is raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give more depth to the card.

Papers

Even though the card base is Thick Basic White and the focal layer is White, this card shows quite a bit of color.  That is from the New Horizon DSP.  And I promise that I did not use most of a piece of this beautiful paper to only hide it behind the front layer.  I would never do that!  This piece had some punches cut from it.  And I actually thought ahead to position the punches further inside so it could be used as a layer.  That is unusual for me to actually think ahead!!  Plus I used one of the cut off pieces as the strip which backs the sentiment.  It is a great extra touch of color.

 

Please do not forget that the Last Chance products are winding down.  Additionally we have been notified that all of the Natural Tones Stampin’ Blends are back in stock.  They are part of the All Together early release shown below.  Because of this that special has been extended through the end of May!  Woohoo!

Shell-ebrate You

Today’s card is starring the Turtle Friends Punch Bundle and would work for any age.  At least I hope it does since I made it for a close friend, who is younger than me, but not a child.  I thought the turtly play on words was just perfect.

 

Stampin' Up!, Turtle Friends, Turtle Punch, Pattern Party, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps and Punch

I had not really played with this stamp very much and making this card has given me several ideas for it.  Sadly it is on the retiring / almost gone list.  (There are only 7 days left of the current Annual Catalog!)  For the sweet turtle, I stamped and then colored her body with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.  And did you notice her pink toes and lips?  The shell is stamped with Old Olive and then punched with the matching Turtle Punch.

The adorable little bird is stamped with Polished Pink and fussy cut using my wonderful Paper Snips.  Both the turtle and the bird are raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals.   I don’t care for a lot of a solid cardstock.  So to alter that part of the Polished Pink I stamped the party streamers tone on tone down the open section.  And finally the sweet Turtly sentiment was added on the White with the Turtle and Bird.

Colors

Normally my color choices begin with the DSP.  This time the black and white plaid strip from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper was indeed the original idea.  And the Polished Pink came more from “what would go best with this strip of DSP?”.  An odd way of getting there but it worked!

There are probably not very many real life pink birds.  Maybe a flamingo?  But I took creative license and went with it for the little bird.  And to add bling for my finishing touch I went with pink again.  This time was the 2021-2023 In Color Gems.

Product Share

I am taking orders for the new Annual Catalog Product Share for New Designer Series Paper and Ribbons.  The form is on my menu under Shop/Product Share.  This is a wonderful way to get a sample of all of the new papers so you can really see their beauty in person.  Then you can decide on the ones you like the most.  And the ribbon is the same way.

A Wisteria Birthday

My project for today is a Sneak Peek of the beautiful Wisteria Wishes Bundle of products.  Plus there are some of the 2022-2024 In Colors added in.

 

Stampin' Up! Wisteria Wishes, Wisteria Dies, Orchid Oasis, Tahitian Tide, Banner Pick A Punch, Jackie Beers

 

This card is also my design entry for the Make My Monday Challenge.  Today’s challenge is Happy Birthday.  You can join our challenge by clicking on the link below.  The other design team members’ entries will be there for you to see also.

Wisteria Dies

The Wisteria Dies from the Wisteria Wishes Bundle are the star of this card.  I used two of the flower dies and two of the leaves dies.  Some examples I have seen only use one of the flower dies, but I love the definition it gives.  Actually the solid flower piece will cut the stamped image.  For added color, I used HIghland Heather as the background and a piece of DSP for the more detailed top layer.

Regarding the leaves, it is similar to the two flowers.  The solid leave will cut the stamped image and then you have the more detailed one.  I decided to use both again like front and a shadowed back layer.  You may be able to see that I also used Stampin’ Dimensionals to give more depth to the layers.

Papers

As I said, I used a variety of old and new regarding the papers.  The card base is Gorgeous Grape with the top layer being one of the new 2022-2024 In Color 6X6 papers in Tahitian Tide.  I felt that brightness would be great as a “sky” image.  For the leaves I went with my favorite green of Granny Apple Green.  although the new Parakeet Party is a shade lighter and brighter!  It may become my new favorite.

On the flowers I used Highland Heather as the background with another of the new In Colors.  This one is the Orchid Oasis in a floral pattern.  The two tone of the floral paper adds even variation.

Finishes

This card could be for any occasion.  But since my challenge was a Birthday, I had to had that in.  To do this I went with the simple Happy Birthday from the Art Gallery stamp set.  It is simply a clean version of the sentiment.  And to give it a little detail without adding layers, I used the Banner Pick A Punch and flagged each end.  Finding the proper location was difficult, but in the end it nestled perfectly between the wisteria.  And as a final touch I added a trio of the 2021-2023 Gems off to the side.  Everyone needs a touch of bling!

Double Strip Fun Fold

I am not sure my title describes the Fun Fold on today’s card.  It is a Double Flap card starring the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper. And is paired with tulips from Flowering Rainboots set.  I made it for a card class this past weekend to show this gorgeous DSP.

 

Stampin' Up!, Flowering Fields, Flowering Rainboots, Art Gallery, Pearls, Jackie Beers

The card is a Gate Fold with two flaps which are attached on opposite sides.  Here is an opening view.

 

** As I took the photo I realized I had not adhered the inside layer to the card! Duh!!

Paper

Even though there is a stamped focal layer, I believe the DSP is the star of this card.  These wonderful tulips are from the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper.  Surprisingly I love the mix of Highland Heather and Rich Razzleberry.  Those are not two colors that I would think of together, but they are great.  By adding the Evening Evergreen as the side pieces that really works to pull the green from the paper.  It is a Jewel Tone card base with a pastel center.

Stamps

For the focal layer I went with the pot of tulips.  This stamp, which is actually three different stamps, comes from the Flowering Rainboots stamp set.  Since it is a photopolymer set, lining up the three stamps is so easy to do.  And to add the sentiment, I pulled from the Art Gallery stamp set.  A simple Happy Birthday seemed to fit.  I was trying not to cover the stamped image so simply stamped it across the front of the flower pot.  By using the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink it is a clean look without adding any bulk to the front.

Finishes

Rounding the tops of the focal layer gives a bit of a break from all of the sharp angles on the front of the card.  With so many layers it looked a bit full.  The Detailed Trio Punch is retiring and will be missed!!!  And for the finishing touch, I added a trio of Basic Pearls just tot he right of the stamped tulips.  They show up much better in person.

Horizon Birthday

It is no secret that I have loved using the New Horizon Designer Series Paper.  Today’s card is another quick and easy card starring the paper and On The Horizon stamp set.

 

Stampin' Up!, On The Horizon, New Horizon, Label Me Fancy, In Good Taste, Bakers Twine, Jackie Beers

 

Paper

The New Horizon Designer Series paper does the majority of the work in making a card.  It is like looking out your window at beautiful scenery.  And that was the look I was going for on this card.  I needed a masculine birthday and this seemed to fit the bill.  The card base and layer were both pulled from the paper.  With this piece of DSP I could have gone in a variety of different ways color wise.

But for masculine I went with the greens of Evening Evergreen and Soft succulent.  But for a special touch, the Soft Succulent is actually Vellum.  It is from the 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum.  The shimmery look fits perfectly with the DSP.  And the last paper is the tag.  It is from In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and is a scrap of a light wood look paper.

Stamp

Even though the On The Horizon stamp set is part of a bundle, I only used the stamp set.  And I stamped mostly on the beautiful piece of DSP.  That can be a bit scary, but is such a reward once you do it.  The grasses at the bottom were stamped using Evening Evergreen Ink.  Since the birds were more in the distance and not as clear, I went with Basic Gray for them.

Punch and Finishes

The sentiment is from the On The Horizon stamp set also.  It is stamped and then punched using the Label Me Fancy Punch.  To anchor the punch I used the Crumb Cake of the Bakers Twine Essential Pack.  The twine is wrapped around twice and just secured behind the sentiment.  To help it stand up a bit away from the twine I raised the sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And with the DSP being so beautiful I did not think the card needed any bling.  I know that is shocking!!!  LOL!!
