You’re Inspiring Birthday

Hello Stampers!  I have another favorite stamp set…You’re Inspiring.  Also tried a new technique.

These lovely daffodils are from the You’re Inspiring Stamp Set.  I tried the technique of cutting out parts of the image and placing the oval die behind them to get the overlap of the flowers…I love it! The flowers, stems and leaves are actually colored with Stampin’ Write Markers.

The inside sentiment is taken from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set. If you have this set…go back and revisit it. There are so many great stamps within this set.

The background has some texture by using the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder. I used my flower rounder on the oval so that it puffed out in the middle and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals only in the center. The look is great – raised center and flowers over the edge of the oval.

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.

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

Deck the Halls Card

Hello Stampers…it’s been a while. 

Today I have a very nice Christmas card that we made in our Christmas Card Class. There is just a bit of detail but so worth it.

You can see that we used dies, and lots of Stampin’  Dimensionals.  I love the added touch of the little poinsettias popped up. The colors are basic Christmas colors…Real Red, Emerald Envy and Whisper White.

A simple sentiment finished this card off.

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!

Peek A Boo Birthday Card

Hello Stampers!  Today I’m going to show you a really cool card. I’m calling it the Peek A Boo Card but it is also called the Telescoping Card. I’ve had a few very short posts but I’m going to warn you – this will be a long one.

Looks just like a Gate Fold…right? Watch…

Hmm…what’s going on?

A birthday cake is sneaking out.

Wow! Isn’t that really cool? It’s such a neat surprise.

 

 

A fellow demo in my upline group showed us this but in a larger size. I scaled it down to a regular 4 1/4″ x  5 1/2″ card. Really had to use my math skills on that!

Tulip Greetings

Hello my dear stampers! Today’s card is a bit different and it’s actually made with the Bird Builder Punch which is retired. 😦 Don’t forget…if you want a retired item, contact me…maybe, just maybe I can find someone selling it.

 

To make the tulips I used the wing of the Bird Builder Punch. I cut long strips of Cucumber Crush to make the stems. The actual card base, some of the tulips and the ribbon are all in Daffodil Delight.

 

This sentiment is a sneak peek at a new die for 2017-2018. I LOVE it!!!

You may notice a little sparkle to the tulips…I brushed the accents with Clear Wink of Stella. It almost makes the tulips look like they have a bit of dew on them.

 

Here’s a close up of that awesome new die! Can you imagine how stunning it would be if you built it up with several layers using another new product…Multi purpose Adhesive Sheets.

We made this card in a class and it was very well received. In fact, one of the gals wanted the Bird Builder Punch to make more of this style card and I found one for her at a very reasonable price.

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Paper – Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Cucumber Crush

Accessories – Stampin’ Write Markers (Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Pink Pirouette), Bird Builder Punch, 1/2″ Seam Binding in Daffodil Delight, Clear Wink of Stella

 

I hope you like this card and will try one for yourself. Don’t forget…send me a photo of your creations via email and you just might be my guest stamper!

Take care and until my next post…Happy Stamping!

Timeless Love

Hello Stampers. Hope this greeting finds you all in good health. This seems to be the season for anniversaries so today I have a very pretty anniversary card for you. (My husband and I are celebrating our 48th tomorrow May 9.)

I’m very happy with the way this card turned out. The doily adds the wedding like touch therefore this card could be used as a wedding card too. Actually…for almost any occasion if you just change the sentiment. I like to use color on color for backgrounds and the word “congratulations” worked out great. The circle is popped up. The vellum is not plain…it has a little flower pattern to it (retired).

This is a great sentiment from the Timeless Love Stamp Set. This whole card was done using only that set. Unfortunately it will be retiring on June 1. (If you like it, get it now!)

That little sprig of flowers colored with markers really adds to the inside as well as the envelope.

The pearls look as though they are holding the banner in place and also add a little bling.

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Set – Timeless Love

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black, Soft Sky

Paper  – Soft Sky, Whisper White

Accessories – Doily, Layering Circles Framelits, Vellum, Pearls, Stampin’ Write Markers (Daffodil Delight, Pink Pirouette, Old Olive, Soft Sky)

 

This is a lovely stamp set and it makes very pretty cards. Hope you enjoyed seeing my creation.

Until my next post…Happy Stamping!
