Goodbye to Garden in Bloom

Today I am sharing another stamp set that I really like that is retiring the Garden in Bloom Stamp set.

But the good news is – this card is made with the Stampin’ Up! color Flirty Flamingo which is staying!

So I have found a few scraps of the Fruit Stand Designer paper left from the 2016 catalog.  So am going to make a few of these cards with a group of ladies that I am stamping with today.

I cut the DSP on a diagonal and used the other side of the DSP inside the card.  Here is the inside.  I love the colors and fun spring feel of this card!














It is hard to see, but I used the Wink of Stella on the flower petals to give them that extra little zing.  Everything needs a little bling!

Both cards have a card base of Flirty Flamingo cardstock. 

The card on the left is randomly stamped with the flowers from the Garden in Bloom stamp set.  This is a great way to make your own Designer paper.   For this card I used Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach inks to stamp the flowers.  The outline of the flower is stamped with the primary color and the inside of the flower is stamped with the same color and then stamped a second time on a second flower to get the lighter shade.  The leaves are stamped with Wild Wasabi.  Just a side note that Peekaboo Peach and Wild Wasabi inks are also retiring.

For the card on the right, I used a Black Archival ink pad to stamp the outline of the flowers and then filled them in with the Flirty Flamingo ink.  The flowers were cut out and applied to the card with dimensionals.  The butterfly is colored with Daffodil Delight in the center.  The edge of the Butterfly wings is a brush stroke of the Peekaboo Peach ink.

I will miss this beautiful Cheery stamp set!

Don’t miss out!

How to CASE a Card

I am going to show you how to case a card today.  Have you ever seen a card that you like and wonder how to make it?  CASE is the crafting word for Copy and Share Everything.  The most important point is to give credit to the person that designed the card originally!

This week I have been playing around with the Share What you Love Bundle of products since those are featured this month.  I like the card that is in one of the examples that Stampin’ Up! published to the Demonstrators.  So I am going to show you how I CASEd the card and then made a version that is just a little stepped up (more bling added).

The Card on the left is the card that Stampin’ Up! published on the demonstrator site.

This card has a Rich Razzleberry Card base that has been cut to 4 1/4″ x 11 and scored at 5 1/2″ to stand the long way.  A piece of Whisper white cardstock has been cut to 3 3/4″ x 5″.  I can tell the dimension by the wider layer that is on this card.  Most card layers are 1/4″ smaller – this has a wider layer (more of the background card is showing) so the layer is 1/2″ smaller than the card base.

To make the banner end on this layer, I made a little mark on the bottom of the layer in the center.  Then went up 3/4″ and made another mark.  I used my Paper snips to cut on the diagonal from each edge to the dot int the center.

The Center of the card is stamped with the Love What you Do Stamp set.  The background and small flowers on the top are stamped with the new In-color Grapefruit Grove.  I have to say this is favorite new In-Color for this year.  The leaves on the side are stamped with Old Olive ink.  The rose is stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink.  The cute detailed tag comes from the Share What you Love Embellishment Kit.  “Thank you” is stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink.
Here are the items from the Stampin’ Up! Bundle.  Interested in getting a head start with this new Suite of Products?  Check out the bundles HERE.  As you can see to the left, the bundle includes the Grapefruit Grove Ink pad!!

The card on the right is a stepped up card with an additional layer and a little more bling.

The Card Base is the new Grapefruit Grove Cardstock.  The whisper white layer is the same size (3 3/4″ x 5″) with a layer of old olive underneath.  The old Olive is cut to 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ to make a very narrow layer.

The background is stamped with the Grapefruit Grove ink.  Leaves are stamped with Old Olive Ink and the roses are stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink.  I added the tag from the Share What you Love Embellishment Kit and tied a piece of the white twine in the kit thru the side of the tag.  I then added two small piece of the Rich Razzleberry Velvet ribbon as a tail coming off the side of the tag.

That’s it! That is how to CASE a Card.  You make the card as shown or you can modify the card and add your own touches and embellishments to it.  As we all know, the embellishments are the fun part!

Fancy Fold card with Beautiful Day

TBrusho Fancy Fold Cardoday I am sharing a Fancy Fold card that I made for a for the upcoming Stampin’ Up! onStage event!  Can you imagine 800 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators in one room seeing the new catalog for the first time??  Well, that is OnStage this weekend in Hartford!  2 days of fun catching up with other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, checking out the new catalog, new products and a little training for the next year!

This card is 4 1/4″ square.  It is actually a smaller version of the card that I posted last week made with the Springtime Foil DSP.  Here is the inside for this card.


Here are the details to make this card:
1.  The Card base is a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of whisper white cardstock.  Score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half.  I love the neat watercolor look that you can get with the Brusho Crystals and thought that would make a good background for the flower from the Beautiful Day stamp set.

Sprinkle a little of the yellow, red and orange Brusho Crystals on the front of the card and spritz with water.  I use a box lined with paper towels to do my spritzing since the color will run.  Set the card base aside to dry.  The sample that I have above  has a lot of the speckles left from the crystals.  If you want a more watercolor look – you can spritz a little more.  This is another card front that I made that used a little more water which gives a different look without the speckles.

2.  After your card base has dried, I added a 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of whisper white cardstock on the inside of the card front.  This hides the “drips” from the Brusho crystals.  I stamped the leaf with Pear Pizazz ink from the Petal Palette stamp set on this inside piece. 

3.  Cut a 1/2″ window on the front side of the card. Line up your paper trimmer at 1/2″. Move your cutting blade to 1/2″ on the top clear ruler of the cutter. Cut up to 3 3/4″. Rotate your piece and make the next cut. Cut each side to make a window. When you are finished you will have a 3 3/4″ square. Trim 1/8″ off two sides of the square.  Save this square. You will use it later on.

4.  Next cut a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock to 4″ x 5 3/4″.  Score this piece at 2 1/8″ and 3 7/8″.  Fold into a Z fold.  Line up the 4″ side of the Z fold with the right side of the card back.  Use Fast Fuse or your adhesive of choice to adhere the last panel to the right side of the card back.  Fold the Calypso Coral piece up and line up the square from the window that you cut out.  Use adhesive on the right side of the square and attach to the coral piece.  It should now move smoothly thru the window on the front of the card.

5.  Decorate panels for the sides of the Z fold piece of the card.  I used 4″ x 3 3/4″ piece of Whisper white cardstock for each panel.  The first panel I embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder.  I used a brayer and added a little Pear Pizazz ink over the embossed leaves.  On the second panel, I stamped the Leaves from the Petal Palette stamp set with Pear Pizazz ink.  I then stamped my message with Calypso Coral ink over the leaves.

6.  Next I stamped the Rose from the Beautiful Day stamp set on Whisper white cardstock.  I used Versamark and Melon Mambo ink and embossed the image with Clear Embossing powder and a Heat tool.  I colored the Rose with the Brusho Crystals.  To do this, sprinkle a little of the crystal on a clear block and add 2-3 drops of water.  Use an aqua painter to paint the flower.  I used the Yellow crystals for the center of the flower.  I then added a little bit of orange outside the center of the flower.  I then covered this up with red ink from the red crystals.  NOTE:  I had to practice and play around with the amount of water the get the level of color that I wanted and to do the shading.  I used dimensionals to attach the Rose to the front of the card.

7.  The last step is to cut 2  1/2″ x 3″ tabs from a scrap of whisper white cardstock.   Score the tabs at 1 1/2″ and fold in half.  Line up the fold with the point where the Z fold portion of the card meets the frame.   Attach with tear and tape or fast fuse.  Make sure that you fold up your card and make sure that the pieces line up and the card closes flat.  Attach the second tab on the bottom. 

That’s it!  I hope that you liked this card today!

Painted with Love Birthday Card

Painted with Love Birthday cardToday I am sharing another card made with the Painted with Love Designer paper from Stampin’ Up! that was designed by my very talented downline friend Margaret.

The difference is that this card is a Birthday Card and not a Valentines Card.  Another great way to use this paper.  It is not for just Valentines!

So here are the details on this card!

the Card base is a piece of Whisper White Cardstock cut to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  Next is a layer of Powder Pink cardstock (one of the in colors) cut to 5 1/4″ x 4″.  Next is a layer of Rich Razzleberry cardstock which is cut to 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″. 

Next are 4 pieces of the Painted with Love Designer Paper cut to 1 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ layered onto the 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″ piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock and layered onto the powder pink layer.  There is a strip of the gold vinyl painted love stickers along the bottom of the cardstock.

The centerpiece of this beautiful card is the birthday greeting.  The greeting is stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink on a piece of whisper white cardstock using the Picture Perfect stamp set. There is a round painted with Love vinyl sticker around the birthday sentiment.  This piece has been cut using a scalloped circle from the Layering circle framelits set.  This is layered onto a slightly larger circle cut from a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock    And then this is layered onto a third larger circle cut from powder pink cardstock.  Around the edge of this focal point is wrapped a piece of the Pink tinsel trim that coordinates with the Painted with Love Designer paper.    

The centerpiece is then layered onto the front of the card.  Stamp and cut out a small heart from the Sure Do Love you stamp set.  Place on the side of the centerpiece.

Here are the products that were used for this card!

Painted with Love Valentines card Ideas

Today I am sharing examples of some Valentines card ideas that my friend Margaret and I designed using the Painted with Painted with Love Valentines card ideasLove Designer paper from Stampin’ Up! for our January Crafting event.  Our crafting event on Saturday featured the Painted with Love Designer Series paper and the Sure Do Love you Stamp set from Stampin’ Up!.

I love the look of this paper with the gold embossing and the beautiful colors.  What a great combination of colors!!

These cards use the Stampin’ Up! Painted with Love Designer series paper, the Sure Do Love you stamp set and the  Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers.

I love the Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers and have been using them a lot with the Painted with Love Desinger paper.  They are great for adding a little extra detail to a card front or that added touch to the inside of a card or an envelope.


The “Love” is one of the stickers and I cut 3 hearts from a strip of hearts below the love.

Also – notice the detail below the bow – this is one of the rows of stickers.





A very quick and easy way to spruce up your cards!



Enjoy!

Happy Stamping!

Two cards, one sketch with Beautiful You

Beautiful You cardToday I am sharing a couple of cards that I made a couple of weeks ago with a customer using the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You stamp set.  She was new to card making and didn’t know where to begin.

My favorite way to start a new card is to choose a set of Designer Series Paper and pull out the coordinating colors of Cardstock (Stampin’ Up! conveniently has these listed on the back of the DSP packages).  








Next I have a folder of sketches that I use for reference.  I choose a sketch that has a focal point that would work with the stamp set that I am using.  So we chose this sketch from the Mojo Monday collection of sketches.  We used the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper and the colors, Soft Sky and Blushing Bride Cardstock.   For the first card we used the Seaside Embossing folder on a piece of Whisper White cardstock for the background layer.  The lady from the beautiful you stamp set was stamped on a piece of the DSP and cut out and layered over the image stamped on the oval. 

We started with the same sketch on the second card but found that when we cut two squares to fit behind our focal image, you couldn’t see the pattern of the striped DSP.  So we left off the second square and only used one for this card.  The Soft Sky Cardstock on this card is embossed with the Falling Softly embossing folder.

These are the supplies that I used for these two cards.

Need some Cool Treats to Cool off?

Today I am sharing a card made with the Stampin’ Up! Cool Treats Stamp Set and using the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series paper.  Who doesn’t love an ice cream sundae on a hot August day!

Just as a side note – I am currently posting from Edmonton Alberta in Canada where i am visiting my son.  He started a two year project in Edmonton and moved up here in March.  Edmonton is beautiful and has a very diverse culture.  We tried Korean bingsu last night which means shaved milk.  It is their version of ice cream.  It was delicious!

Ok – back to card making – I love the Cool Treats Stamp set.  and don’t forget the matching framelits! These amazing dies make it so easy to cut out all of your cool treats to make the perfect handmade Birthday card!  The dies for the ice cream cone have some detail to them so they cut and emboss at the same time!









So here are the details of this Cool Treats card:
The card base is a piece of Pool Party cardstock cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.
The second layer is a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Pool party Designer paper from the Naturally Eclectic package. 
Third is a layer of Whisper White cardstock cut to 3″ x 5 1/4″.  This layer has Washi Tape from the Basics pack layered on the bottom.

The Ice Cream scoops are stamped using Stampin’ Up!’s Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party and Peekaboo Peach classic inks and then cut out using the framelits.  The bowl is cut from a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I cut 3 layers of chocolate using scraps of Chocolate Chip cardstock and a cherry from a scrap of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. These are layered onto each of the ice cream scoops.  Last I used a scrap of So Saffron and cut a circle using the larger of the Stitched Framelit Circles.   The So Saffron circle is layered onto one of our Lace Doilies.  Then I built the ice cream sundae by attaching the bowl to the doily and then using dimensionals to attach each ice cream scoop to the bowl.

The last step was to stamp the message.  I used a Chocolate Chip Stampin’ Write marker to color in the words “you are” and stamped this on the top of the white piece of cardstock. Make sure to clean the stamp well to get the residual ink off of the “you are”.  Then I used a Chocolate Chip and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write markers to color the “cherry to my Sundae” on a 2″ x 2 3/4″ piece of Vellum cardstock.

Attach all the layers and you have a great Summer Cool Treats Card!

Here are the supplies that I used for this card:

Handmade Orchid Card

Today I am sharing a hhandmade orchid cardandmade Orchid card that I made with the new Stampin’ Up! Climbing Orchid stamp set...  For those of you that know me, I am a flower lover and orchids are one of my favorite sets.  So of course when I saw this set – I had to get it!  So I have had some fun playing around with it.  I am going to record a video on how to use the pieces to make different looks.

I can see some great decorative 3D items with this set!


The card base on this card is cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.  The second layer is a piece of Berry Burst cardstock cut to 5″ x 3 3/4″.  The whisper white cardstock layer is cut to 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ which is layered onto the Berry Burst layer.  The “enjoy today” is stamped using the new in-color Lemon Lime Twist ink pad.

The Climbing Orchids stamp set is a two part stamp.  Two part stamps allow you to get more depth on the flowers.  You can stamp the outline of the flower in one color and then stamp the inside in a coordinating color.  The other great advantage to this set is that you can purchase the set and the coordinating framelits together in a bundle and save %10! 

Each orchid is made up of 3 pieces.  The base of the orchid, the two leaf petal and the flower center.  For each piece of the orchid, there are two stamps, an outline stamp and a detail stamp.  The exception is the center of the flower which is just one piece.

The orchids are stamped on scraps of Whisper White cardstock.  The outline of the flower is stamped with Blushing Bride ink.  The detail of the flower petal is stamped using Berry Burst ink – stamped off. This means ink up your detail stamp that lines up with the outline image and then stamp the image on a piece of scrap paper.  Then stamp the image a second time on top of the outline image.   You get a layer of Berry Burst that is not quite as intense.  The center of the flowers are Berry Burst stamped at full strength.  They are not “stamped off” first.  Next cut out the orchids using the handy matching framelits!

Each orchid is assembled using a dimensional to attach the double petal to the base of the flower.  I very carefully bent the flower petals to give them some lift.  You want to be careful to not crease the flowers but just slightly bend them.  I placed the orchids on the card first to figure out where the stems should be stamped.  The stems are stamped with Lemon Lime Twist ink.

I hope you have enjoyed these cards today!  Here are the products that you need to make these cards.

Last Chance for…..

The month of May is winding down and some of the Stampin’ Up! retiring items are running low.  So don’t miss out!  I thought that over the next couple of days I will profile stamp sets and papers that are retiring.

Today I have chosen the Brithday Fiesta Bundle (142268) to showcase.  I love the festive spirit of this stamp set and designer papers!  I recently used the Birthday Fiesta stamp set and Festive Birthday Designer Series paper to design a class for Cinco de Mayo!  It was a huge success!

NOTE:  These are not my original cards but ideas that I found on Pinterest and CASEd (Copy and Share Everything) for this stamp set.


These are a couple of the cards that I designed with this set!  This card with the Cactus is sooo cute.  The hats and guitars and other accessories are cut out of the Birthday Fiesta Designer series paper.  And of course I used dimensionals to make the accessories pop! 

The background on this second card is made by stamping the banner with stripes of multiple colors.
I will miss the Birthday Fiesta stamp set.  This set would be great to make party invitations, birthday cards or thank you notes!

So the Stampin’ Up! inventory report is saying low inventory for this bundle.  So don’t miss out!

Delightful Daisy Card

Daisy DelightToday I am sharing a Delightful Daisy card made with the new Delightful Daisy Designer Series paper in the upcoming June Catalog.  I absolutely love this paper!!  It has so many beautiful patterns in it and coordinates so well with the Daisy Delight Stamp Set.

Here are the details of this card!  The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Night of Navy cardstock.  Next is a 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ layer of Old Olive cardstock and two coordinating pieces of the Delightful Daisy Designer paper each cut to 3 3/4″ x 2″. These overlap and are adhered to the Old Olive card stock layer.  Then a 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ strip of night of navy cardstock to cover the seam between the two pieces of paper.  This is covered with a piece of the new Daffodil Delight double stitched ribbon.

The daisy is stamped with Daffodil Delight ink and punched out with the corresponding daisy punch. The center is stamped with old olive ink and punched out with the 3/4″ circle punch.  A little Wink of Stella is added to the center to give it a little dazzle!  Do you like this card?  This is one of the cards that was designed and rejected for our Daisy Class!
