Granny Apple Coffee for GDP 144

I am submitting today’s card for the Global Design Project #144 Challenge.  It is a CASE the designer.  I used her layout for my design .  To CASE can mean using a little, a lot, or just the layout.  I was a little in the middle of that on my card.

Coffee Cafe, 143677

 

And here is the challenge card I cased.

 

 

I was so thrilled when the Coffee Cafe set and matching framelits carried over to the new catalog.  Then I realized I had not used them in quite some time.  So here they are paired with the gorgeous Tropical Escape 6X6 Designer Series Paper.

All of the supplies I used are listed the bottom of the page.  Thank you so much for visiting today!  I very much appreciate it and love to hear from you.

COLOR COMBINATION:  Of course these are in the Gorgeous DSP.

 

MEASUREMENTS:

  • The wide strip of DSP is 5 1/2 X 2 1/2
  • The banner strip of DSP is 5 X 2

 

 


 

It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.

Double Z Fold

One of my favorite parts of card design is the fold. I love any fold that is a tad different.  Today I have a different take on the Z Fold, which is my favorite.  This one is the Double Z Fold.

 

Stampin' Up!, stampinup, Country Road, Z Fold, Double Z Fold, Jackie Beers

Country Road, 147469

 

For a country type card, mine is a tad on the bright side.  But I love the look of Crumb Cake, Real Red and the new Blueberry Bushel.  I utilized most of the stamps in the Country Road stamp set.  I discovered  the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch matches the wheel perfectly!  I love those kind of discoveries.

Here is a picture of the open card so you can see the Double Z.

 

 

I probably needed a better angle for the photograph, but I believe you can see the strip that is the second Z of the fold.  And did you notice the Happy Birthday sign on the top right?  The “Nail” is a brad.  I LOVE brads, and Stampin’ Up! has brought them back!!  Yippee and Happy Dance!!

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I hope you like different folds as much as I do and will give this one a try.  If you have any questions I would be thrilled to help you out.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

MEASUREMENTS:

  • 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4 and 6 3/8

Your Special Hug

I am back to regular card making for today.  The series of items from my Tea Tin gift was different for me.  It was nice to venture out of the norm.  But now I feel like I need a Hug.  And that is what today’s card is all about.  I have used the Hedgehugs Stamp Set to create a quick and easy little card.

 

Hedgehugs, 145879

 

This card is so bright and cheery that I think it would work for just about anyone, and for a lot of occasions.  I adore that sentiment telling you that you are special.

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

There are quite a few of the new Stampin’ Up! Colors that I am particularly fond of.  These two are at the top of the list.  They are both very vibrant.  Maybe not the typical woodsy colors, but who cares!

I have listed all of the supplies at the bottom of the post.  Even though my card has a lot of pieces, it is really quite simple and quick.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I very much appreciate it.  I hope you have a great weekend and will come back on Monday to see another project.

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.

 

Stitched All Around, 148374

 

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.

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.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Brian King. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

3 X 3 Cards for Copper Tea Tin

Yesterday I focused on the Copper Tea Tin that I made as a gift for a friend, and the special card for her.  Today I am showcasing the six 3X3 cards that I placed inside the tin for her to use.  Yes, I said 6 cards, with envelopes, and there is room for more!  As I said yesterday, these tins are AMAZING !!

 

Stampin' Up!, stampinup, Jackie Beers, jackiebeers, a big thank you, big thank you, nature's poem

A Big Thank You, 147377

 

 

I stayed with the Nature’s Poem DSP from the outside of the tin.  All of the sentiments are from the A Big Thank You stamp set.  My thoughts on these little cards are as either Random Act of Kindness or as small gift inserts.  Either way, I think anyone would smile upon receiving one.

Here is a photo of the cards inside the tin.  I really was not exaggerating !! There really is room for more cards, gift card, or  maybe a small gift.

 

I hope you think these tins are as wonderful as I do.  If you have any questions, or would like to purchase some of them, please contact me.  I would love to assist you.  All of the products I used are listed at the bottom of the post.

Thank you for visiting today!  I very much appreciate it.  Be sure and check back tomorrow because it is the InKing Royalty June Blog Hop.  You would not want to miss that.  There are always amazing cards to hop along and view.

Copper Tea Tins

Today I have used the AWESOME Copper Tea Tin as the holder for some gorgeous little cards.  I will show the tin today and the main card.  Tomorrow I will show all of the 3 X 3 cards I made to go inside.

 

Stampin' Up!, Copper Tea Tins, Nature's Poem, Jackie Beers

Copper Tea Tins, 147034

 

I love little containers!  So when I saw these tins in the new catalog I was so excited.  They are a perfect size.  For today’s project, I decorated with Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.  I believe I have used more DSP since I got my pre-order than in the last year.  This year Stampin’ Up! has outdone themselves with the gorgeous papers they have created.  But, back to the tin….. I used a 12″ strip of the DSP towrope around the tin.  I think the  cajun craze (that is the color listed on the DSP pack) leaf in the DSP matches really well with the copper color of the tin.

The sweet sentiment on the tin is from the Treat Tine stamp set.  There are some wonderful sentiments there.  I am crazy about sentiments that are special, and I love the different fonts used in this set.  Another MUST Have!

For the main card, which is actually for my friend, I CASED Julie DiMatteo’s Diamond card from her last week Facebook Live.  You can see her Friday post of it HERE      

 

A Big Thank You, 147377

 

I used Grapefruit Grove instead of Cajun Craze that is listed as the coordinating colors on the DSP.  I like it even better!  (That is what I used on the sentiment circle for the bellyband of the Copper Tin.)  The sentiment is from A Big Thank You.  It is a Must Have if you do any Thank You cards.  The sentiments are fabulous!!

I hope you will come back tomorrow to see the cards I placed inside the tin and see how many will fit!  It is an amazing little guy.  Thank you so much for visiting today!  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Tropical Hello for #GDP142

I am a little late to the game, but when I realized the Global Design Project – 142 was a sketch challenge, I decided I had to play along.  I say I am late because it began on Monday!  Duh!!

 

Stampin' Up!, stampinup, Darling Label Punch, Darling Label Punch Box, tropical Escape, Jackie Beers

Darling Label Punch Box, 146855

 

And here is the GDP142 Sketch:

Thankfully you are allowed to deviate somewhat.  My sentiment is a bit of a deviation.

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

I love Bright colors and my color combination today comes directly from the bottom piece of designer paper.  This is the new Tropical Escape 6X6 DSP.  It is gorgeous!!! And the sentiment and punch are the new Darling Label Punch Box.  The box itself is beautiful and would be a wonderful gift or special storage box.  I however LOVE the punch!!  I adore the “ticket corner” type punch and this is perfect.  There is a stamp set included in the Punch Box, and my sentiment is one of those stamps.  They are all great as well.  Additionally there is another stamp set in the catalog that coordinates with this punch.  A bonus!

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you have a great weekend and will return on Monday.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.  I really love to read your comments, so please leave me one if you like this card.

You Are Wonderful

Wasn’t yesterday’s Blog Hop wonderful?  There is always a great variety of stamps, colors, and embellishments.  Today I have used the same stamp set as yesterday. I am on a more masculine streak it seems.  Today’s card would be perfect or Father’s Day.

 

Rooted In Nature, 148353

 

I made yesterday’s card over a week ago, and as I was writing this post realized how very alike these two cards are.  I am not sure if that is good or bad!!

This card is quite a lot of green.  I used he Handwritten stamp as the background and stamped in Soft Sea Foam.  The sentiment is stamped in Mossy Meadow.  I used Stampin’ Write Markers in the Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede for the tree.  The leaves/branches are Old Olive both full strength and stamped off.

To give the sentiment layer some depth without trying to cut and piece the punch to create a background, I have a very easy method I use.  I simply run my Stampin’ Write Marker around the edge of the punched piece a time or two.  My holding the marker almost flat, I touch the fatter part of the large tip end on the edge of the cardstock.  Give it a try, I believe you will like the result.

Thank you very much for hopping yesterday and for coming back today.  I promise to use a different stamp set tomorrow! LOL…   All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

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!
