Love Roses

I hope you are looking at the Christmas  Rose Suite of products that Stampin’ Up! has recently introduced.   Oh My!!  It is all beautifu!  I splurged and got it all, which I usually do not do on the limited releases.  I will say, I was very pleased when it all arrived.  I cannot say enough about the colors.  The gold glitter dots and gold ribbon are the icing on the cake for me.  I even ordered the bracelet as well.  It is gorgeous.  It has a little Stampin’ Up! tag along with the rose tag.  It is adorable.

Today’s card is sharing a bit of the Christmas Rose paired with some other SU products.  As I have said before, that is one of the reasons I love SU.  The ability to mix and match is wonderful.

 

Stampin' Up!, Christmas Time is Here, Inspiring Iris, Frosted Bouquet, Timeless Label, Magnolia Lane Ribbons Combo, Roses Dies, Jackie Beers

 

The Christmas Time Is Here Designer Series Paper is gorgeous!  It has gold touches throughout.  I chose the Poppy Parade to pull from it, as well as the Mossy Meadow.  The twine is the Mossy Meadow Baker’s Twine from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo pack.

The die cut behind the sentiment is from the Roses Dies, part of this suite of products.  It is so pretty.  The sentiment is from the Inspiring Iris stamp set.  I loved this sentiment from the first time I read it in the catalog.  It is so sweet and I am blessed to have a couple of people in my life this sentiment is perfect for.  I gave this card to one of those ladies.  The sentiment is punched with the Timeless Label Punch and then layered on the tags from the Frosted Bouquet Dies.  The tag is a layer of Gold Foil and Poppy Parade.  The sentiment is stamped in the Gold Metallic Ink.

I have a link to the Christmas Rose Suite of products under the UPDATES at the end of this post.  Please take a look at the array of products.  You can order the entire suite, the stamp and dies, or any mix of the items.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back tomorrow for another InKing Royalty Blog Hop!  You will love the great Halloween type projects.

Modern Heart

I have a project today using the Modern Heart Stamp Set.  I have not used it previously.  And that was a mistake.  I really love all of the stamps in the set.  I especially like it when one stamp set is all I need to make a really cute card.  And this one has a variety of sentiments to choose from.

 

 

This card began with the stamp set and my wanting to use the Shimmer White Embossing Powder.  The outline of the heart with all the criss-crossing lines seemed to be perfect for embossing.  I added the Night of Navy background that was stamped off a bit first.

The designer series paper is a piece of the Perennial Essence DSP that was left from another project.  The Navy in it seemed perfect for the look I had going.

The Shimmer White Embossing Powder has some sparkle to it, but because the lines of the heart are fairly thin, it didn’t show as much as I would have liked.  To help this a a bit, I backed the piece with some of the Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  It may be a little difficult to see in the photo.

Thank you for visiting again today.  Please return on Monday for another new project.

Cow Love

I will say up front that I made this card a few days ago.  I was so surprised when I checked my Stampin’ Up! Up-Line Brian King’s blog yesterday and saw a very similar card.  I dd not want you , or him, to think I copied his card.  Although it is an acceptable practice and is called CASEing.

Anyway, I made today’s card in response to the Royal Challenge we are doing on our Team Facebook page while Brian is off on the SU Incentive Trip.  I also sent it the next day to a couple I met in my travels that own a cattle ranch.  I thought of them as soon as I saw this awesome Over The Moon stamp set.

 

 

I believe I have said it before, but I think these cows are adorable.  I paired the High Tide set with the cow to get the dirt and grass for the field.

The beautiful color I chose is the new In Color Rococo Rose.  I think the name is sweet as is the color.  The plaid is from the 2019-2021 In Color Paper Stack of 6X6 DSP.  I gave it a small border of white to mimic the white showing with the cow.

The cow is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored with Stampin’ Blends.  It was die cut with the Layering Ovals Dies and backed with a scallop die from the Layering Ovals.

Here is a view of the inside and the envelope.  I was going cow crazy on this card!

 

 

Thank you for visiting today!  I really do appreciate it and hope you will return on Monday for more new projects.

Over The Moon

This is my second post for today.  The first one was about the great specials that Stampin’ Up! has to offer.  You can see that post HERE.

Today’s card is a cutie that I envisioned as soon as I saw this stamp set!  And it fits with all the great updates I mentioned in the earlier post.  I am OVER THE MOON for Stampin’ Up!.

 

 

With the color pallet I used, this could very easily be a baby card.  That was not my intention, but all you would need is a sweet “welcome” on the inside and you are finished.

I stamped everything in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with my favorite things, the Stampin’ Blends.  I colored the Moon with Dark Daffodil Delight and then added the little ring around it with the new Light So Saffron.

I am not a cow expert, but think the black and white ones are usually more black than white.  I took creative license and made it white, with a touch of black.  I wanted you to see all the details in the stamp. I gave her a bit of a feminine touch by adding Light Flirty Flamingo to the ears, nose, and mouth.

When I was trying to decide what else was needed, I thought of the moon and had a lightbulb moment that it needed stars.  The perfect stars came from the Twinkle Builder Punch.  It even has a moon that you could punch and use in place of the stamped one.  I thought the stars were the perfect size.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I was absent yesterday due to storm damage.  Luckily it was not to the house.  Sunday we had a lightning strike into the ground about ten feet from the corner of the house.  It fried the air conditioner unit, cable, internet, and an electrical breaker.  Thankfully we have friends who do those things and along with the cable company got up and running by the end of the day on Monday.  For once I was ahead and already had scheduled Monday’s post.

Wild About You

I mentioned yesterday I was saying goodbye to some of my favorite DSP today.  Yes, It is the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.  It such fun animal prints, but also really bright sides as well.  I love both sides.  Thankfully the Animal Outing Bundle will be carrying over……..BUT it will no longer be a bundle in the new catalog.  So if you do not have it, get it before June 3 and save yourself 10%.

 

If you follow my blog, you know that I love bright colors most of all.  This Designer Series Paper is right up my alley!!    I love to color, but the beautiful giraffe is not my coloring (I wish I was that good!).  It is cut directly from a piece of the DSP.  The dies and paper pair up exactly for ease of card making.  Or I can imagine in a scrap book for the “wild child”!!

I layered the same piece of  DSP .  The Berry Burst that is attached to the Lemon Lime Twist base is the back side of the top layer of DSP with the cute birds.

I was afraid my little giraffe would not show up enough.  I raised him with dimensional, and then grounded him with the strip of Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon.  The sentiment is stamped on white and punched with the Tailored Tag Punch.  I love using that layer in the up and down direction.  The added bling is from the Glitter Enamel Dots.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for a project with new products!!

Multi Fold Card

I have a CASE today of a card I received in Charlotte at OnStage from a sweet friend.  Vicki Townsend’s card was different in decorations and the sentiments, but the fold idea came from her swap card.

 

Stampin' Up!, A Big Thank You, Painted Glass, Jackie Beers, All My Love

The card was a bit difficult to photograph because of the folds, so I finally took the picture with it laying flat.  It was well worth the trouble though.  I love this fold.  If you follow my blog, you know that folds are my favorite thing to add to a card!

You also know that I occasionally do DSP scrap cards.  Well, here is another one!  It is great for the leftover pieces.  I have all of the meaasurments further down in the post.

Here is the open card.

 

 

You can see that there are two places on this card that you could write.  Or you can place another DSP piece on the smaller white space and use the larger one to sign on.  I almost stamped onto the white panel, but had cut two Crumb Cake circles by mistake.  I saw that as a subconscious need to add both of the circles to the card. LOL!!    I like the layered circle as opposed to simply stamping on the card stock.  It gives a bit more dimension to the card.

 

Measurements and Directions:

  • Card base is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2
  • Crumb Cake layer is 3 1/4 X 4 1/2
  • Multi fold white piece is 4 1/4 X 11, scored at 1 1/2, 3, 5 1/2, 8.  Fold and burnish and then make mountain valley folds
  • DSP layers are 4 X 1 1/4, 4 X 2 1/4, 4 X 2 3/4
