Celebrate You

Hello Stampers!  What a crazy weather week we’ve all had! The poor East Coast…getting hit again with snow storms and the West Coast is being pounded with rain (hooray…rain is always needed here on the West Coast). While we’re all staying close to home is a great time to design some cards. 

We made this card in my last class and I think the fold will be used over and over again. I got this great idea from Dawn Griffith. It looks difficult to make but it really isn’t. 

I decided we needed to use some of the Sale A Bration items so I chose Celebrate You Thinlits and Beautiful Peacock.  Keep in mind that Sale A Bration ends March 31st. It just so happens that the Celebrate You Thinlits will be carried over to the new Annual Catalog that will come out on June 1st.

This is the front…you can see there are endless ways to design this front piece.

I used the shadow affect with the black letters in back and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper in the front.

 

This is the surprise…two pockets – one for your sentiment and the other for a gift card. I love it! The best part is that this whole card is made from one sheet of 8 1/2″ x 11″.

 

 

Super gift card card…right!

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Rather than try to explain how I did this card I’ll give you Dawn’s site since she does an awesome job explaining it. You will notice that my card is different in places…I didn’t use ribbon to close it, etc.

Do try this card out…it’s fun!

Panda Waterfall Card

Hello Stampers!  We are freezing here in Southern California – it’s been in the 50’s and 60’s and as low as 30’s and 40’s  in the morning…brrr. Hope you are warm and healthy. We are just not accustomed to this cold weather!

I have a very cute card for you today. It’s the Waterfall Card some of you are familiar with and our Sale-A-Bration Pandas. 

See the little white tab at the bottom?  Just give that a little tug and the next Panda will appear.

Sorry about the smudge…Tip: If you use Archival Basic Black be sure to let it dry thoroughly.

Here’s the next one.

And the next…

We made this card in my classes and at first the ladies thought they would never be able to do it. In the end…EVERYONE was successful! 

You want directions…right! Here you go.

Card Stock:  Base – 4″ x 5 1/4″; Strip – 1″ x 4″; (cut 4) 2″ x 2″

DSP:  3 3/4″ x 5″

Whisper White:  2″ x 9″ (score at 2″, 2 3/4″, 3 1/2″, 4 1/4″); (cut 4) 1 3/4″ x 1 3/4″; (optional – 3 3/4″ x 5″ for back of card)

  1.  Adhere the DSP to base and optional Whisper White to back, using 1 1/4″ Circle Punch – punch a half circle at the bottom in the center
  2. Stamp the Whisper White squares and adhere to the cardstock squares
  3. Stamp the sentiment onto the 2″ x 9″ Whisper White strip at least 1/2″ from 1st score mark and leave at least 3/4″ from bottom of this strip
  4. Fold on score lines all in one direction (curving toward the sentiment)
  5. Adhere the 1″ x 4″ strip ONLY on sides to the base about 1″ from the bottom of base
  6. Adhere the squares (adhesive ONLY on the top of square) starting at the midway fold ON THE BACK SIDE of the sentiment along the score lines and work your way up putting a square along each fold
  7. Slide the Whisper White (WW) strip with squares attached through the cardstock strip, center it and line up with bottom, put adhesive on strip but be sure to stay within the boundaries of the WW strip, fold the top half of WW strip (with the squares) over the adhesive laying flat and press.
  8. You’re finished!

It may sound daunting but it really isn’t. Give it a try…if you have any problems…contact me.

Tri-Fold Card

Hi Stampers!  Today I have a very versatile card for you. Yes, mine is a Valentine card…better late than never! I should have posted this on Wednesday but life got in the way. 🙂

 

In class some of the participants made this lovely card into a birthday card…you can put any sentiment you want on it.

 

Open the first page and find this lovely flourish.

 

And finally the inside where you can put your sentiment. I left this particular one blank until I need it and then decide what I want inside.

This card may look difficult but really isn’t.

Here are the measurements for this card:

Powder Pink – 6 3/8″ x 5 1/2″, score at 2 1/8″

Whisper White – 8″ x  5 1/4″, score at 4″; (2) 2 1/2″ x 4″

Sahara Sand – (2) 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″

DSP – 2″ x 5 3/8″ and 1/2″ x 5 1/4″

Use the photos to lay out your pieces then stamp and adhere.

Stamp Sets – Bloomin’ Love, Flourishing Phrases

Ink – Crumb Cake, Powder Pink

Paper – Powder Pink, Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Fresh Florals DSP

Accessories – Stampin’ Write Markers (Pear Pizzazz, Powder Pink)

 

This card is really lovely; I hope you will try making one. 

Please try to stay healthy! The flu bug has hit my daughter and her family very hard…all 5 of them are down with the flu (mom, dad, 3 children). Unfortunately one of the girls also has pneumonia! This flu is nothing to fool around with so take care of yourselves.

Happy Stamping!      Donna

Valentine Lots to Love Box

Hello Stampers!  We’re getting close to Valentine’s Day so I have some cards to use for Valentines or Birthday. 

This adorable box has the greeting “happy valentine’s day” and the mini card is for a birthday card on a package. I like to give the ladies in my classes the option of the special holiday as well as birthday or general. 

These darling boxes are so easy to make using the die from the Lots to Love Box Framelits. Just add some DSP, some accessories and sentiment and you have a very cute box.

We made little greeting cards too, using the Whisper White Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes. You can make a set of 4 to slip into the box. We also made gift tags but I am not posting those. 

These cards are so handy. Great to put on a gift package!

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Sets – Teeny Tiny Wishes, Birthday Blossoms

Ink – Berry Burst

Paper – Berry Burst, Fresh Florals DSP, Whisper White

Accessories – Ribbon, Lots to Love Box Framelits, Duet Banner Punch, Everyday Label Punch  (held over from the Holiday Catalog)

 

Hope you enjoyed this cute little box and ideas for contents. I’ve been trying to come up with a candy to put inside. It needs to be flat…maybe a couple Ghirardelli Squares. Please contact me if you think of other items to fit in this little box.

Happy Stamping!        Donna

Powder Pink Birthday

Hello Stampers! This month the theme for my classes was Birthday cards. Many of the participants asked for more masculine ones or cards that would be suitable for anyone. I had to have just one fluff card and here it is. 🙂

I absolutely LOVE this Happy Birthday die – the font, the size – this die has it all. I used the new In Color Powder Pink and it was a big hit. 

I used the circle I cut out from the front for the sentiment on the inside. I used silver embossing powder. I love the Stitched Framelits, they give all the shapes that extra touch. I added some Fresh Fig flowers for contrast. I used the Washi Tape from Paper Pumpkin on the corner of the envelope.

Here’s a close up of the sentiment. 

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Set – Bunch of Blossoms

Ink – Versamark

Paper – Whisper White, Powder Pink, Silver Foil, Fresh Fig, Fresh Florals DSP

Accessories – Whisper White Seam Binding, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Happy Birthday Thinlits, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Embossing Buddy, Silver Embossing Powder, Heat Gun

 

This is a nice clean design with a lot of appeal. Hope you enjoyed seeing one of my latest cards. I have a few more ready for you so keep watching for my posts. 

Quick Note…I’m having trouble linking the new catalog to the image but I did post it here on September 1 so just scroll to that post. I also have the catalogs on my Weekly Newsletter as well as my new class schedule for 2018. If you are not receiving my Newsletter please email and ask to be added to my email list.

Friend Flip Fold Card

Hi Stampers.

Since today is the Fourth of July I’d like to wish you all a Happy Fourth! Shock…I do not have a red, white and blue card for you. 🙂 Instead, I have a little different twist on a greeting card. Got the inspiration from Dawn Griffith. She has so many great ideas so “why invent the wheel”!

Instead of the normal card this one has a single piece of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and then you build from there.

I used the new In Color – Fresh Fig and the Fresh Florals DSP. Those new In Colors are great.

The Blushing Bride is adhered to the Fresh Fig and then there is a small fold in the DSP which adheres over the Blushing Bride. Whisper White is then centered with the back of the DSP onto the Blushing Bride. It’s quite different and I do like unique folds and cards.

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Set – Bunch of Blossoms

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black

Paper – Fresh Fig, Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer, Fresh Florals DSP

Accessories – Laying Circles Framelits, White Satin Ribbon (R), 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, 2″ Circle Punch

 

This is such a fun card to make and I can see it made with all the new In Colors. It would make a great gift set of Thank You cards in a cute little box!  Hmm…just might do that!

Here are the measurements I used:

Fresh Fig – 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″;  Blushing Bride – 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″;  Whisper White – 3 1/4″ x 5 1/2″;  DSP – 3 1/4″ x 6″, score on the 3 1/4″ side at

5 9/16″.

I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White and then punched it out with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. Punch out a 1 3/4″ circle from Fresh Fig, and a 2″ circle from Silver Glimmer. Glue them together. (Might want to use your Fast Fuse especially on the Glimmer paper.)     Using the 2 1/8″ Circle Framelit cut out a circle in the DSP, then use that die and the 2 1/2″ Scallop die together to make the frame. Glue it together and add the ribbon and you’ve got an awesome card.

Give this card a try and send me a photo…I’ll highlight you as my guest stamper!
