A Special Day

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  There were some awesome Sunshine related cards and it is definitely worth your time to hop through the list.

For today I have gone back to the gift I made for a friend.  The Copper Tea Tin with the 3 X 3 cards inside.  So today’s project is the gift tag I made to attach to the gift.  I rarely wrap a gift, and the bags I have that are perfect size for the tin are covered in Red hearts.  The tag then does not match the color scheme of the gift.  But I think it is really cute.  I hope you will as well.

I absolutely LOVE the intricate detail on this sentiment layer.  It comes from the die and is just gorgeous.  As an added bonus it has all of this detail but cuts cleanly and pops right out of the die with no hanging little pieces.  WooHoo !!

You can probably tell I used both the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and the Banner Triple Punch to make the red tag part.  The only additional items are the little bling of a rhinestone to dot the “i”, and the beautiful ribbon for the tie.  All in all this is a super cute, quick and easy, gift addition.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I very much appreciate it and hope you will come back tomorrow for a new project.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

 

 


 

It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up!

A Wish for InKing Royalty June Blog Hop

 

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Here Comes the Sun.” As you can guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with projects that are inspired by the joy of the summer sun. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

To me Sun = Summer, at least it did when I was a child.  Another childhood summer memory is blowing on the little dandelion flowers and watching the fluff float around.  Now I think of allergies and where I was spreading those little seeds!!  But let’s stick with childhood summer good times!  This is the first thing I thought of when I saw the stamp set Dandelion Wishes in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog.  And when I saw the theme for this  month’s blog hop, again I immediately thought of the dandelions!  So here is the card made from my summer memories.

 

 

Dandelion Wishes, 146747

 

 

I totally love that sentiment!  I love the font as well as the statement.  And I am pleased that the card did come together as I envisioned it.  That is a super win for me.  Almost all of these products are new, which is another thing I love.

The colors I chose obviously were to match the Sun theme.  I believe they totally worked to create the summer feeling.  The new Pineapple Punch is a serious WOW and packs a punch (of color)!!

 

Color Combination:

 

 

In case you haven’t figured it out, the sun is from the Painted Harvest sunflower.  I stamped the center and then the least defined of the flower section.

All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the post.

Masculine Birthday for Pals Blog Hop June 2018

 

 

Welcome to the Pals June, 2018 Blog Hop. This month we’re going to Pick a “B”. Projects for Babies, Birthdays or Brides, that is. Be on the look out for creations using new products from Stampin’ Up!

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 the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

For today’s Hop, I chose to do a Masculine Birthday.  I send more Birthday cards than any other and sometimes masculine ones are just really difficult to get the right look I believe.  Well, now that is a little easier!  There are a couple of stamp sets in this new SU catalog that are great for anyone, but especially for creating masculine cards. The Rooted In Nature set and bundle is one of those.  Here is the card I made.

 

Stampin' Up!, Rooted In Nature, Handwritten, Timeless Texture, Sunshine Sayings, Jackie Beers

Rooted In Nature Bundle, 148353

There is quite a lot of background design going on.  It seems more in the photo than in person, LOL!!!  I was going for a bit of vintage/rustic look. Did you catch my innuendo on the card?  The slice of tree with the rings showing which means the age of the tree and then the sentiment “One More Year”.  Okay, sometimes I am not as humorous as I think I am  🙂

I did use a great little trick on the sentiment though.  The full sentiment is “On one more year” from the Sunshine Sayings , which is a builder type word set.  I used masking tape to cover the “ON” while I was inking and then removed it and stamped to get only the wording I wanted.

I will say that this is the first time in ages that I have torn and sponged the edges of the paper.  I remember why I like that look and added texture it gives.  This was my first time using the Shaded Spruce color from the revamp.  I have to say that I love it.  It is a deep, but bright, green.

Thank you so much for visiting my page on the Blog Hop.  I greatly appreciate it.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Now it’s time to use the Blog Hop Line-up below to see which “B” the rest of my Pals are using. Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations.

Mark your calendars for July 11, 2018 for our annual Pattern Party featuring projects using favorite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Papers and coordinating embellishments.. Don’t miss it!

Diagonal Cut Card

Today’s card is a WOW! card.  To me it is anyway.  I made it using the video from Dawn Griffith.  You can see the video HERE.  She is a fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  One of the things that makes this card special for me, is that you are making 2 cards.  So many times I make one and then halfway through the process think to myself “why did I not just make 2 of this card?”.   I am working on that!  So here is the card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Stitched All Around, Nature's Poem, Picture Perfect birthday, Jackie Beers

Stitched All Around, 146632

 

One of the things I love about this card is using both sides of the DSP!  The card I made yesterday was using both sides as well.  I love that!!!  You can see yesterday’s card HERE.  And next shows the card with the bellyband removed and the flaps open.

 

 

Remember in the top section I said that you automatically make 2 cards in this card making process?  The only difference in the two cards is the way they open.  So picture the point of the triangle is to the left on this card when totally open.  The other piece would be with the point on the right.  Or you can fold the sections however you want to!!!

 

Thank you for stopping by today!  I greatly appreciate it.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the post. And if you do not currently have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator you use, I would love to assist you.  If you need one of the new catalogs, just contact me from the button up at the top of the page.

Pearl Flowers

The Stampin’ Up! Share What You Love Designer Series Paper is by far my favorite of all time!!  I have used it several times since I received my Pre-Order for the new catalog.  And I cannot stop using it.  I may need intervention!  But in addition to the AWESOME paper, I am showcasing a new fold.  Or it could be a new cut, or both!  Here it is and then I will explain what I mean.

 

Stampin' Up!, stampinup, Abstract Impressions, Share What You Love DSP, jackiebeers, Jackie Beers

Abstract Impressions, 147513

 

 

That DSP just shines!   Actually it really does shine.  This is one of the sheets that has a pearlized look to some of the flowers.  The little pearls in the flower centers are the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.  They are just too cute!

The Fold/Cut is a little different.  Since the DSP is card stock weight, it can serve as a card base without feeling flimsy.  To achieve this look, I cut the Smoky Slate card stock to 5 1/2 X 8 1/2.  I scored it at 4 1/4, the normal folding point for an A2 card.  But I did not stop there.  I went back to my cutter and with the score line at 3/4 on the trimmer ruler , I cut off the rest of the panel.  (And I was able to use that cut piece to make the top layer with a bit leftover.)

The DSP is cut to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2.  I burnished my fold on the Smoky Slate layer and placed adhesive on the inside of the 3/4 section.  Then all I had to do was line up the DSP with the rest of the base and fold the small section over on top of it.  Easy Peasy and perfect alignment.   An added bonus is that when you open the card, you get to see the other side of this beautiful DSP!!  WooHoo!!  That is always a problem for me when the DSP is gorgeous on both sides.  I hate to hide one of them.  With this Cut/Fold, I do not have to hide either side.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today!  I greatly appreciate it and would be happy to answer any questions if I was not very clear on the instructions.  I have listed all of the products used at the bottom of the post.  I hope you have a great rest of your day!

Celebrate

Today I have once again used the Cake Soiree stamp set.  I have paired it with the fabulous Gorgeous Grape from the Color Revamp.  This is a beautiful color and if you are a fan of purples, then this one is definitely for you.

 

Stampin' Up!, Cake Soiree, Gorgeous Grape, Detailed Trio Punch, Jackie Beers

Cake Soiree, 145745

 

 

Please forgive the smudge under the cake!  Somehow by simply laying on my craft table waiting for me to take the photograph it got a smudge!  I cannot even blame it on one of the cats!!

I colored the cake with the Stampin’ Blends. And WOOHOO they are back in stock to catch up on the backorders and I am anxiously awaiting the availability of the additional colors.  I do LOVE the Stampin’ Blends.  The background layer of Pear Pizzaz is embossed with the Ruffled Impressions Embossing Folder.  This gives almost a 3D effect in person.

There are three new items on this card as well.  The 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, which comes in Whisper White and Very Vanilla, and the Detailed Trio Punch.  Both are awesome!  The ribbon is very easy to work with and added just enough of an additional element.  The Detailed Trio Punch is super!  It punches the little flower you see here.  It also punches a ribbon hole as well as is a corner rounder.  And it is super easy to use.  If you had the trio punch from a few years ago, it might have been a little difficult to actually punch.  At least mine was.  This one is super easy and I love the little flower!  As well as the corner rounder since the old one retired. Oh…..I forgot the 3rd item.  It is the Share What You Love Pearls.  And they are gorgeous.  I added several of them to my cake and the flowers.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you like this card.  I see it as a birthday or a bridal shower.  All of the supplies I have listed at the bottom of the page.  I hope you have a great rest of your day!
