Sweet Thanks

For today’s card I am focused on just one of the New In Colors.  It is the Sweet Sorbet.  And it is as sweet as the name sounds.

 

Stampin' Up!, Nature's Print, Pretty Prints, Tailor Made Tags, Sweet Sorbet, Jackie Beers

Papers and Colors

Stampin’ Up! has outdone themselves again with some of the gorgeous new DSP.  This paper is Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper and it is outstanding!  The faded looking images remind me of playing with leaves, construction paper, and the sun as a science project.  Although their version is so much better!  This is the new Sweet Sorbet In Color.  You can see the darker shade of it towards the center of the print.  And this pack of paper has all of the New In Colors included.  It is a must have in my book.

Since the faded look in the papers is more Vanilla than White, I went with Very Vanilla for the tag and layer.  And the lovely Sweet Sorbet is the card base.  The full strength color was too dark on the tag, so it is stamped off for the Fern you see.  However, it matches the lighter shades of the paper even better.

Stamps, Dies, etc

Surprisingly this is the same stamp set as yesterday’s card, Nature’s Print stamp set.  And the little fern on the tag is the same one from that card.  With this paper I did not want to cover it up with stamping.  That really is a dilemma sometimes with the papers we have!  Instead I went with one of the smaller of the Tailor Made Tags Dies.  It was large enough to hold the sentiment and part of the Fern.

To finish this sweet card I added a bit of the Sweet Sorbet Metallic Ribbon to the tag.  Not only does it add some shimmer but it adds yet another shade of the color.  Each of these new colors I have played with have been my “current favorite”!  And now this Sweet Sorbet is my Favorite!!

Double Z Artfully Layered

Fun Folds are the best kind of folds for creating cards.  Today I have paired a Double Z fold with  products from the Artfully Composed Suite of Products in the Mini Catalog.

 

Stampin' Up!, Artfully Layered, Tropical Layers, Artfully Composed, Polished Dots, Pear Pizzaz, Mint Macaron, Pale Papaya, Jackie Beers

 

Front

The front of the card stars not only the beautiful Artfully Composed Designer Series paper, but some of the Artfully Layered Stamps.  And to top it off there are two different die cut leaves using the Tropical Layers Dies, which are part of the bundle.  For a bit of the unexpected, I heat embossed the sentiment and some extra little heart shaped leaves onto the solid die cut leaf.

 

 

Inside Back

I know it seems odd doing the back before the center but you will see the method behind my madness…hopefully!  The Double Z fold, the extra Z fold, is attached to the front and the back of the card.  You can see the back section is attached to a piece of the DSP which has a very similar leaf.  And to pair better with that DSP, I added the word stamp from the set using Pale Papaya Ink.

Center Section

From this center view you can see all of the sections of the card.  The center panel of the small Z is where you would write your greeting and sign.  It is the least exciting of the card and why I went here last.   But this open view allows you to view the full Double Z at work.  And you can see that the front sentiment layer is raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals with a few of the Polished Dots embellishments for some bling.

Measurements:

The card base of Pear Pizzaz is cut to 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and scored at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4 on the 8 1/2″ length.  The panels are 2 Mint Macaron pieces cut to 1 7/8 X 5 1/4.  With the back larger panel cut to 4 X 5 1/4.  For the DSP there are 2 pieces cut to 1 3/4 X 5 and the larger one is cut to 3 7/8 X 5 1/8.

The smaller Z section is also Mint Macaron and is cut to 3 1/8 X 7.  The Basic White panels are the front focal piece cut to 2 7/8 X 2 7/8.  And the small panels are 2 that are cut 1 7/8 X 2 7/8 each.

To adhere the smaller Z section, fold both the little Z and the card as they would be closed.  Center the small Z on the closed card.  Pay attention to how much of the focal layer is actually over that front left fold.  Place Stampin’ Dimensionals only on that part.  Adhere it to the front panel.  Then find where the back section lands.  Add adhesive to that panel and close the card.

Customer Thank You

My project for today is a gift tag.  Using Flowing Flowers stamp, Sports Event dies,  Hearts, and Doilies make a quick and easy project.  This one is for my customers who earned my Shopping Award with my Blue Star Perks.  You can read about my Perks at the bottom where this month’s Host Code is located.  And also the full information regarding my Perks is under the menu bar  with Shop / Perks.

 

Stampin' Up!, Sports Event, Heart & Home Doilies, Heart Punch, Flowing Flowers, Cotton Ribbon, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

The single stamp used on today’s tag is from the Flowing Flowers stamp set.  All of the sentiments in this set have this type of Font.  These are some of my favorite sentiments and partly because of the font style.  It is stamped using Real Red Ink onto Basic White cardstock.

Punches

For me grabbing a punch is one of the quickest ways to make a card.  I love all of the Stampin’ Up! punches.  The hearts I have used here are a pair.  They are the perfect size for quite a lot of the sentiments, or a small stamped image.  Thankfully the smaller one was perfect for the Thank You!

Dies

And the base of the tag is a die from the Sports Event Die set.  They pair with the Your Biggest Fan stamp set.  And they are part of the Hey Sports Fan Suite of products.  So there are quite a lot of products they can work with.  However, I didn’t use any of those products for my tag, except the tag itself.  So now you can see another use for this Die set.  Plus it is a perfect size!

Embellishments, etc.

The doily is from the Heart & Home Doilies.  There are three different colors in the package.  And I chose the Misty Moonlight.  The tag needed something besides more red.  And I could add the Cotton Ribbon Combo of Misty Moonlight as well.   Continuing the Misty Moonlight a bit further, I added one of the 2020-2022 In Color Gems .  I love how all of these pieces make a quick tag.  And they are not ones that you would normally think of as pairing.

A Ladybug Bee

I adore the new Ladybug punch and stamp set.  And I have seen where others have turned the ladybug into a bee.  Since I have a friend that loves bees, I had to make one.

 

Stampin' Up!, Ladybug Punch, Pattern Party DSP, Heart Punch, Special Moments, Jackie Beers

 

Paper

I am beginning with the paper since that is where the bee begins.  In case you have not noticed the great Host Rewards pack of paper, this is part of it.  The Pattern Party Designer Series Paper is part of the Host Rewards in the Annual Catalog.  You definitely cannot beat the value for your Host rewards.  I only used part of one piece from the pack.  These beautiful hearts are the opposite side of the black and white stripes.  I used a small piece of the black and white to color with my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend.

I found a scrap of the Gold Shimmer Vellum to use for the wings.  Sadly this vellum is retired. I apologize because I thought it had carried over.  However, you could use plain vellum and color it with the Stampin’ Blend as well.  I have done it, and it works wonderfully.

Punches

I obviously used the Ladybug Punch for the body and wings of my bee.  For the striped body, I aligned the paper so I just cut the fat part of the body.  It is glued to the Basic Black full body.  And the wings are attached using a glue dot at the center top.

For the Focal Area, I used the larger of the Heart Punch Pack.  I like the added benefit of the scallops for the Focal spot.  And to carry on the theme, I added that punched out heart to the inside of the card.  Since it is a Basic White card base, the bright hearts really pop on the inside.

I hope you will try different bugs/bees with your Ladybug punch and share them with me.

Sale-A-Bration

In my opinion, Punch Bundles are a great value for your money.  The Ladybug Bundle is $32.50.  With an added $11.50  more, you qualify for one of the Free with $50.00 purchase items from SAB.  Have a party with your friends and earn even more rewards.  It could include the Pattern Party DSP!  I would love to talk with you about hosting a party.

Or the second best part of SAB is the Join Promotion.  You can read more below regarding the costs of joining.  But there are way more benefits than the price.  Currently with the SAB promotion, you can choose TWO stamp sets from either active catalog, in addition to the $125.00 in product.  That could be over a $60.00 additional value!

Thank You

It’s a New Catalog Debut today with Stampin’ Up!  The January – June 2022 Mini Catalog is Live now.  And to sweeten the deal,  It is also Sale-A-Bration time once again.  That is the best time of year.  Stampin’ Up! always has great Join promotions for the SAB events.  For this SAB it is 2 FREE stamp sets from any live catalog!  This is Amazing!!!!

My card for you today is a Thank You card made with one of the new sets in the Mini Catalog.  I always say that I do not need another flower. LOL!!!!  This one is awesome.

 

Stampin' Up!, Flowing Flowers, Gorgeous Leaves, Pale Papaya, Calypso Coral, Jackie Beers

 

Flowing Flowers

This flower is so delicate looking I believe.  And the detail from the built in shading and definition is perfect.  I also LOVE the font in the sentiment.  All of the sentiments in this set are similar.  It is so Now in that style.  Plus this set is a perfect way to make a quick card or multiples.  This is my last month customer Thank You card and were really easy to make.  The only item not from the stamp set is the splatter, which is from the Gorgeous Leaves set.

Paper and Color

For quick and easy, I went with White on White for the card style.  Just the addition of a few dimensionals really makes it look special.  To get a soft look from the flower, I went with a Pale Papaya background splatter.  Then added Calypso Coral for the flower itself.  My go to color for a sentiment, when not using Black, is Smoky Slate.  I love how these colors are all fairly soft looking.

Winter Note Cards

Thank You cards are always needed, but especially around the Christmas Holiday.  I made a packet of two different designs to share with you today.

 

Stampin' Up!, White note cards, peaceful cabin, peaceful place, jackie beers

 

Peaceful Cabin to begin

I love the simple stamping that the Peaceful Cabin stamp set calls for.  There are dies which can make gorgeous cards by die cutting the images and layering.  To me they are wonderful without the layering.  I stamped the trees by stamping with Just Jade Ink and then stamping again without re-inking.  The adorable fox just fit with the gray color scheme.

 

 

Peaceful Place Designer Paper

A friend who is also a demonstrator posted a card very similar to this one yesterday.  Her version was beautiful and had more details.  Since mine is a Thank You card, I kept it fairly simply as I was making several of each of these.

The star of this card is the DSP.  The trees here are a piece of the DSP, as is the background strip.  The Peaceful Place DSP is so versatile and gorgeous.  The idea for these cards came to be due to having strips the size of the ones on both cards.  I cannot bear to waste beautiful DSP.

Check back later today for the Last Chance Lists from the Mini Catalog.
