Country Tri-Fold

I have shown you this card fold previously.  Before, I used the thick DSP from Share What You Love.  Today I have used DSP from Nature’s Poem, which is regular weight.  So I added a twist and gave it a backing.  Are you intrigued?  Here is the different version.

 

Country Home, 147678

 

And here is the open view.

 

 

Can you see the thin border of Mint Macaron on the back panel?  Because the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper is a more normal weight of DSP, I felt it wasn’t strong enough to stand as a card.  So I added the 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 piece on the back.  If you have been stamping a while you might remember prior to SU giving us the Thick Whisper White.  We used the regular Whisper White and add a layer of colored card stock as the base like this.

I do love this DSP.  The colors are great and I really like the stripes next to the leaves when it is folded.  I did adhere the center of the front fold before adding the oval and flowers.  The flowers are stamped in Gray Granite and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  I was so happy when this Country Home set carried over.  And I hope it carries over into the next Annual Catalog as well.  I love the milk can and pitcher, and that the colors can be adapted to whatever you need.  Another Thank You to Stampin’ Up! for these great stamp sets.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed today’s twist on the Tri-Fold.  I have included the measurements below as well as the supply list at the bottom of the post.

Part of My Story for CTS306

I am playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #306 today.  Brian King was who inspired this sketch.  Of course, I had to give it a try.  My first thought after seeing the sketch was that the Frogs would be perfect.  Here is my card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Part of My Story, So Hoppy Together, Gingham, Jackie Beers

Part of My Story, 149719

Here is the sketch I am CASEing:

As I said above, I decided on the frog from Hoppy Together, A SAB stamp set, right away, and then the Lemon Lime Gingham was a perfect match.  But I could not find the sentiment that seemed to be “Just Right”.  Then I ran across the Part of My Story stamp set, another SAB item, and new I had found the correct sentiment.  “I’m So Glad You Are a Part of My Story” is one that I loved the minute I saw it.  It makes me think of dear friends, loved ones, and especially the friends and family we can just be our super silly self with.  The perfect pairing for the crazy frog!!

Other than finding the perfect match, the card was super quick and easy.  I stamped in Tuxedo Black and colored the frog with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  I love that you can see a touch of the Gingham check through the coloring.  It adds a bit of dimension to his body.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will return tomorrow for a another new project.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the post.

Bright Rectangle Rooster

I have finally broken out the Rectangle Stitched Framelits and OH MY !!!  I am in love!!  These are now my favorite Layering Framelits.  Be warned, I will be using these often I believe!  And I played with the Home To Roost rooster from Sale-A-Bration.  I have seen some beautifully colored roosters, as well as some just stamped roosters.  I like the look of both.  Today though, I went with a brightly colored rooster.

 

Stampin' Up!, Rectangle Stitched Framelits, Home To Roost, Jackie Beers, Beauty Abounds

Rectangle Stitched Framelits, 148551

 

I was  not so sure about this guy at first. We had a rooster show up in our neighborhood last year.  And he was a pain.  (I live in a subdivision and not in the country!)  So I was not too fond of chickens after that.  I am over it due to this cute fellow.  I now LOVE him!  And I am very happy with the coloring and how it works with the card stock layers.  I wasn’t sure on the colors at first, I am sure this is not a normal looking rooster!  But the bright layers of card stock makes the rooster pop.  Plus it gives the opportunity to see the beautiful Rectangle Stitched Framelits in action!!

To give a bit of texture to the white around the rooster, I used the splatter stamp from Beauty Abounds.  I love using small background stamps to add texture or just to soften up the stark white sometimes.  The sentiment also came from Beauty Abounds.

A last note about these framelits,  They put stitching on the layer it cuts out, but also on the piece that is left.  Sort of a two for one deal!  And we love those…..   For these layers, I used the largest die, skipped one, used the next die, skipped one, and used the next die.  I had planned on three consecutive sizes but when I saw how close together they would be, I opted for more card stock showing.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will return tomorrow to see a new project.  Remember the JOIN PROMOTION below!

Hello Beautiful

I have a super quick and easy card today!  It is the definition of #SimpleStamping.  It can be done quickly, great for multiples, and is wonderful with almost any designer series paper.  Can you guess what the layout is?  I will not keep you in suspense.

 

#simplestamping

Butterfly Gala Bundle, 150599

 

How cute is this?  And with FREE Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper (Botanical Butterfly DSP), you just cannot do better.  I chose the Lemon Lime Twist as the base color because I did this card with my Stamp Club.  Of all of the colors of butterflies, the Lemon Lime Twist was the most prevalent.  Since I used all of the two sheets with this pattern I went with simplest to match.

For the little butterflies, they also came from this same DSP, just a different sheet.  And I LOVE punches for quick and easy.  It was super simple for my ladies to punch the butterflies and add to their cards.

I hope you will give this layout a try.  Any DSP that Stampin’ Up! has would work in this  configuration.  I will suggest that you stamp  the underneath sentiment prior to adhering the paper.  Can you guess why I know that?  LOL!!

You’re So Awesome

I really love this sentiment so I could not wait to ink it up.  I got this card layout inspiration from Pinterest and went with this entire set.    It could be made into a Simple Stamping card or multi-layered very easily. My card is somewhere in between those.

 

Flowering Desert, 148700

 

There is not much to comment about in this one.  I added the flowers to give it more texture and  depth.  And the sentiment needed some background.  So I used Touches of Texture to stamp and stamp off with Sahara Sand beneath the punched out sentiment.  I also did some around the edges for the desert floor.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s blog hop and will come back tomorrow for a Non Card project.  Although the layout could very easily be used as a card.  Now you will be guessing!

The Last of Many Blessings

Today I have another card using Retiring Products.  I have included some retiring designer series paper as well as a stamp set.  The set has been great for small cards.  I used it several times for Fall Thank You cards and some table decorations.  I also adore the name of this stamp set, Many Blessings!  The sentiments in the set reflect that name too, which is part of what makes the different pieces so versatile.  Here is my project for today.

 

Many Blessings, 147775

And after mentioning the cute sentiments, I did not put one on the front of the card. Duh!  I love this gorgeous Country Lane Designer Series Paper.  Especially these two which are Blackberry Bliss.  For me at least I find myself preferring the “back side” of the DSP as much as the fronts.  I think of them as having backs and fronts, doesn’t everyone?  LOL!

I was showcasing the DSP as well as the cute stamp, so the card is fairly simple.  I stamped the image in Gray Granite and colored it with the Stampin’ Blends.  I finished with going over the flowers and pot with Wink of Stella to give it a little shine.

Thank you so much for visiting today.  I hope you have enjoyed these last minute cards.  The 2019 Occasions Catalog and the 2019 Sale-A-Bration Catalogs go live tomorrow!  I know I have a long list and hope you do as well.  If you need catalogs, and do not currently have a demonstrator, I would love for you to reach out to me.  I can get one to you quickly.

I have the measurements for today’s card just below this and the complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.

Measurements:

  • 5 1/2 X 8, scored and folded in half
  • 5 1/4 X 4
  • 5 X 3 3/4
  • 4 7/8 X 2 5/8
