Flourish Just A Note

Hello Stampers! My card today was inspired by Julie Davison. I really liked the way she used acetate so I used a piece of retired acetate I had. I’m pleased with the results…hope you like it.

I didn’t really like the acetate as clear because that limited the ability for an inside sentiment so I put Whisper White behind it and I like the way it turned out.

Just a peek inside.

Touches of Texture Sympathy Card

Hello my dear Stampers! Hope you are having a wonderful day. Every day I can make cards is a great day for me.

Do you find stamping and creating as peaceful and relaxing as I do? If so, be sure to make time in your hectic schedule to create! When I first started as a Stampin’ Up! demo I spent at least one afternoon a week in my craft room. Now, after almost five years as a demo…I spend some time every day in that room. My husband now expects me to be in “my space” every evening after dinner and part of each afternoon.

With the new catalog making it’s debut there are soooo many new ideas that I MUST try. But first…I have another CASE from Mary Fish. What can I say…when I see it and I love it I have to make it.

Once again a nice clean design. I used Whisper White for the base card and Pink Pirouette for color. I repeated the image on the envelope. I really like to decorate my envelopes and sometimes use a colorful insert on the flap. 

I used the Scoring Tool to make the “lines” on each side of the base. That is Old Olive ribbon from the past. It’s too pretty not to use. 

Card Measurements:

Whisper White – Base, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″; 2 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ for image piece; Inside – 3 3/4″ x 5″

Pink Pirouette – 3″ x 5″; Inside – 4″ x 5 1/4″

 

 

I carried the lovely little flower onto the inside with the touching sentiment.

The front panel of Whisper White and Pink Pirouette was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

 

Don’t you agree this is a lovely clean card that says so much?

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Sets – Touches of Texture, Flourishing Phrases

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black

Paper – Whisper White, Pink Pirouette

Accessories – Scoring Tool, Pink Pirouette & Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers, Old Olive Ribbon

 

I know if I received this card I would feel that the sender really cares and knowing it was made with love makes it all the more special. 

Remember…an email or text just isn’t the same as a hand stamped card. If I can be of assistance in helping you make a card like this just email or call me. I’d love to help you create!

Happy Stamping!

Flourishing Half Fold Card

Hello Stampers! Here we are at Friday already. Today I have a Half Fold card for you. It’s quite easy but makes such a cute card.

It looks like a normal card except for that horizontal “line” in the middle of the card.

You only open half of the card. It can stand up for the recipient to display.

I took an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock and cut it at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″. Turned it sideways, starting from the top of the fold cut down 2 1/8″. I then cut across the 5 1/2″ side to remove the top portion. I then added some DSP to each visible piece. I used Layering Squares Framelits to make the Rich Razzleberry square with the flower from Flourishing Phrases stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White then cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. The large pearl adds a little pizzaz.

Then I decided to try some retired DSP…

Same idea but a different center piece and moved to the right a bit.

A very soft subtle card…might be good for a sympathy card. There is enough room on the front where I can put a banner or label.  Three Metallic Enamel Shapes add a bit of bling.

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used (for main card not the blue one):

Stamp Set – Flourishing Phrases

Ink – Rich Razzleberry

Paper – Blushing Bride, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Blooms and Bliss DSP

Accessories – Layering Squares Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Metallic Enamel Shapes

 

Try this card out. It’s quite simple but is a bit unusual. These are great cards to make in mass.

Have a great weekend! I’ll be back on Monday with another Easter Card.

Happy Stamping!
