Stampin’ Up! Count My Blessings Sneak Peek

The Count My Blessings stamp set was at the top of my pre-order list.  It has two pretty sentiments and six beautiful botanical images.  It also pairs great with the new Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.  Do you love it, too?  The stamp set and DSP will be available for order on September 1st.For the card front, adhere a panel of Old Olive cardstock to the Early Espresso card base with SNAIL.  Next adhere a panel of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock to the Old Olive panel.  Lastly, adhere a panel of Autumn Blessings Designer Series Paper to the panel of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Cut an 18″ length of Lemon Lime Twist 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon.  Wrap the ribbon around the card front and tie a knot to secure on the far left side.  Trim the ends of the ribbon to desired length.  Stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and cut it out with a die from the Lots of Labels Framelits.  Use the next size up die to cut a mat for the sentiment from Early Espresso cardstock.

Dry fit the label over the ribbon on the card front to make any adjustments needed in ribbon placement and location of the knot.  Apply a bit of Multipurpose Liquid Glue under the ribbon in the area that will be covered by label to secure it.  Adhere the sentiment label to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Stamp the oak leaf and acorn image from the Count My Blessings stamp set with Early Espresso ink.  Color the stamped image using a blender pen and inks from the following ink pads – Old Olive, Lemon Lime Twist and Cajun Craze ink for the leaves and Cajun Craze and Chocolate Chip ink for the acorns.  Color the branch and stems with a Chocolate Chip marker, using the writing tip. Fussy-cut the botanical image after the coloring is completed.  Adhere the colored image to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and use a bit of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the area overlapping the sentiment panel.

Adhere a panel of Old Olive cardstock to the card interior with SNAIL.  Adhere a Lemon Lime Twist panel to the Old Olive panel.  Stamp the botanical image with Early Espresso ink in one corner of a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Adhere this panel to the Lemon Lime Twist panel.  Done!

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Falling Leaves for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Inkin’ Krew blog hop!  Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products.  This month our theme is “Fall Frenzy”. Here is the card I created:

This triple fold card is designed to celebrate the beautiful colors of Fall leaves.  It was created with Colorful Seasons stamps, Seasonal Layers Thinlits dies and Color Theory Designer Series Paper.  These stamps and dies are so versatile and cover every season of the year.  This Designer Series Paper is beautiful as a background, adding texture and interest without overpowering the design.

To begin, score a 5-1/2″ x 11″ panel of Early Espresso cardstock on the long side at 1-1/4″, 4″ and 6-3/4″.  Fold in a zigzag fashion as shown, creating three layers when closed.  Use a bone folder to make the folds crisp and smooth.  Cut all the panels Old Olive Color Theory Designer Series Paper as indicated at the end of this post.  Use SNAIL to adhere the narrow panel of Old Olive White Crackle design to the front side of the first layer.  Adhere the three panels of Old Olive Green Crackle design to the interior sections, as shown.  Dry fit the largest Old Olive White Crackle design panel to determine placement for the sentiment, so it doesn’t show when the card is closed.  Stamp the sentiment using Early Espresso ink, then adhere the sentiment panel to the final interior section.


To create the paper for the leaves, use sponge daubers and ink pads to add color to a  5-1/2″ x 8″ panel of Whisper White cardstock.  The ink pads used are Olive Olive, Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral, Cajun Craze, Lemon Lime Twist and Crushed Curry.  After sponging the panel, lay the dies over the cardstock to select the area you want to cut to have a variety of shades.  Try to have no two leaves alike.  Die cut eight small leaves and two large leaves with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.   Adhere the leaves to the sections as shown, varying the orientation of each leaf.

The final step is to create the belly band.  It adds interest to the overall design and holds the card closed to create some intrigue for the recipient.  Wrap the 9-1/2″ by 1″ strip of Old Olive cardstock around the closed card.  Don’t make it too challenging to remove – make it snug enough to not slip down on it’s own, but loose enough to slide off easily.  Apply a bit of Multipurpose Liquid glue at the overlapped ends to secure.  The seam is on the front of the card and will be covered by the large leaf.  Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon along the center of the belly band, trimming the ends so there is no overlap.  Cut the detailed leaf from Early Espresso cardstock with the die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets.  Adhere it to a large sponged leaf with small dabs of Multipurpose Liquid Glue or the Fine Tip Glue Pen.  Use the branch die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits dies to cut a limb from Early Espresso cardstock.  Cut the limb into three sections with your Paper Snips to use as twigs behind the leaf.  Adhere the leaf and twigs to the belly band with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, and you’re done!

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Balloons – Foil Frenzy

Have you ever just loved the inside of a card as much as the front?  Have you cut the finished card into two halves and made two cards instead of one?  I admit it, yes.  Yes, I have.  But not this time.  This time I just decided to show you the inside first.  Inside out, I guess you’d say. 

For the inside, use SNAIL to adhere a panel of Basic Black cardstock to a panel of Berry Burst cardstock.  Then adhere both to the interior of the Lemon Lime Twist card with SNAIL.  The sentiment is cut from Lemon Lime Twist cardstock with the Happy Birthday Thinlits die.  It is adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Leave a portion of the “y” on “Birthday” unglued, so you can wrap the linen thread around it.  Punch a smaller size balloon from the Berry Burst dot pattern Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series paper using the Balloon Bouquet punch.  Tie with a 7″ length of Linen Thread.  Adhere the balloon as shown using Liquid Glue.  Wrap the tail of the Linen Thread around the “y”, make a loop, adhere to the cardstock lightly with Liquid Glue, and trim the end as desired.

I do love the variety of foil colors and designs in the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series paper.  The bright colors are a great contrast to the Kraft paper.  So many possibilities!  The card front features three larger size balloons punched from the Foil Frenzy paper with the Balloon Bouquet punch.  They are each tied with a 5″ length of Linen Thread.  The balloon on the right (chevron pattern Lemon Lime Twist foil) is adhered directly to the card front using Liquid Glue.  The Berry Burst spotted foil balloon and Soft Sky striped foil balloon are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Bring the thread together in the center and adhere with a drop of Liquid Glue.  Then add a triple-looped bow, adhered with a bit of Liquid Glue, as well.  Trim the loose ends of the Linen Thread to desired length, as shown.  Use SNAIL to adhere the art panel to a panel of Berry Burst cardstock.  Then adhere both to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Add an assortment of colors and sizes of sequins from the Iridescent pack for a bit more shimmer and shine on the art panel.  Adhere each one with a small dab of Liquid Glue.  To avoid a disaster, squeeze some glue out on a scrap of paper and use a toothpick to put a small dab where you want it on the card front.  Carefully place a sequin on the glue, using tweezers if needed.

Don’t forget to turn the card right side out and sign with your White Stampin’ Chalk Marker  🙂

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Bouquet in a Watering Can

Today’s card combines stamps and dies from the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle and the Grown With Love Bundle.  It also features a panel of Petal Garden Designer Series Paper, which inspired the color selection.  I just love the way Stampin’ Up! inks, cardstock, twine and Designer Series Paper colors all coordinate, don’t you?

The card layout was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #297

Also playing along with the Stamp, Paper, Ink Challenge #108

The first step is to die cut three of the groups of four larger size flowers from the Bouquet Bunch die set from Watercolor Paper.  I followed the watercolor technique as taught by Sandi MacIver in the YouTube tutorial in her post here using Powder Pink, Flirty Flamingo and Calypso Coral inks.  Use the 1/8″ circle punch to make the Daffodil Delight flower centers, which are glued to the back side of the blooms with a small dab of Liquid Glue.  Die cut the flower stem from Old Olive cardstock.  Stamp the watering can with Pool Party ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the coordinating dies.  The cut out for the handle is a separate piece – looks like a half-moon. Hint: Secure the dies in place with washi tape or something similar before cutting with the Big Shot.

You will need to trim off approximately one inch from the bottom of the stem bundle so it does not extend below the bottom of the watering can.  After a dry-fit to determine placement, adhere  the stem and flowers along the right side of the 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ panel of Whisper White cardstock with Liquid Glue.  Use Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the watering can, as shown.  Then adhere the art panel to the Flamingo Floral cardstock mat.  Wrap the left side of the art panel 3 times with Flirty Flamingo Baker’s Twine, securing the ends on the back side with tape.  For some finishing touches, embellish the watering can with tiny Pearl Basic Jewels and attach a triple-looped bow with a Glue dot, as shown.  Set this panel aside as you prepare the card base.

Use SNAIL to adhere the panel of Petal Garden Designer Series Paper to the Whisper White cardstock mat.  Adhere this layer to the card base with SNAIL, as well.  Then adhere the completed art piece to the front of the completed card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the card liner, adhere the DSP strip along the edge of the Whisper White panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Stamp the sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set with Flirty Flamingo ink.  Adhere the completed liner the to card interior with SNAIL.

Stampin’ Up! A Little Wild Bike Ride for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Inkin’ Krew blog hop!  Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products.  This month our theme is ” Celebrate Summer”.  Here is the card I created:

The Bike Ride Photopolymer bundle makes me smile.  Makes me think of a sunny day, riding down a grassy path somewhere to have a picnic, stopping to pick wildflowers along the way.  What a fun way to celebrate Summer!  The bundle features multiple images with two-step stamps and corresponding dies which offer many options for creativity.

The first step in making this card is to add background color to the Glossy White cardstock panel by lightly inking a Stamping Sponge on an ink pad and gently rubbing it across the panel to blend.  Use Lemon Lime Twist ink along the bottom to about 3/4″ up.  Use Soft Sky ink to add color to the remainder of the panel.  Then use Lemon Lime Twist ink to stamp the grassy image from the A Little Wild stamp set numerous times along the bottom.   To “build” the bike, stamp all the parts needed on Whisper White cardstock, starting with the bike frame image stamped with Tempting Turquoise ink.  Then stamp the bicycle seat, pedal and handle bar covers in Pink Pirouette ink on the frame image you just stamped.  Stamp two bicycle wheels in Smoky Slate ink and use Pink Pirouette ink to add the stamped rims to the wheels.  Stamp the rack for the back of the bike in Tempting Turquoise ink.

Stamp the outline of the picnic basket in Soft Suede ink and the body of the basket in Crumb Cake ink.  Stamp the outline of the flower bouquet in Lemon Lime Twist ink.  Follow with Pink Pirouette ink for the flowers and Crumb Cake ink for the wrap.  Die cut all the stamped images.  In addition, die cut the basket for the the front of the bike from Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  Then assemble all the parts to “build” the bike.  Adhere them to each other with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Adhere the bike to the prepared Glossy White cardstock background panel with glue, as well.  For the mat, adhere a Whisper White cardstock panel to a Tempting Turquoise cardstock panel with SNAIL.  Adhere the completed artpiece to the mat layer with SNAIL, and then adhere the finished piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set in Tempting Turquoise ink on a panel or scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  Use the smallest plain die from the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut it out.  Using the same die set, cut a scalloped oval from Tempting Turquoise cardstock with the smallest scalloped oval and and a plain oval from Lemon Lime Twist using the second smallest die.  Use Multipurpose Liquid glue to adhere the die cut layers as shown and then adhere the sentiment label to the card front with Mini Stampin Dimensionals.  The label is embellished with a Pink Pirouette die cut butterfly, which is included in the Build A Bike Framelits die set.  Add three tiny Pearl Basic Jewels to each of the flower centers and one for the butterfly head.


For the liner inside the card, stamp the grass image from A Little Wild numerous times along the bottom edge of the Whisper White panel.  Use SNAIL to adhere this panel to a Tempting Turquoise cardstock mat and use SNAIL again to adhere to the card interior.  Add a couple more Pink Pirouette die cut butterflies to the upper left corner to finish.

Stampin’ Up! Wrap it Up Coffee Break Cafe

Have a friend that’s a coffee lover?  Looking for a creative way to gift a bag of coffee?  How about this – a unique hand made wrap and tag, all in one!

The Stampin’ Up! 2017-18 Annual Catalog (page 30) has a display featuring the Coffee Break Suite of products with an awesome assortment of cards, tags, bags, coasters and a wrapped coffee bag.  It’s pictured in the center.  I created this tutorial to explain how I recreated this piece.


To start, fussy-cut three different coffee pots as shown from Coffee Pot patterned paper from the Coffee Break stack of Designer Series Paper.  Use Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the pots along the 3-1/2″ edge of the 3-1/2″ x 2-7/8″ panel of Early Espresso cardstock.  Love this stack of DSP!

The next steps include inking only selected words from the large sentiment stamp.  The way I chose to do this is to use post-it notes to mask the words I did not want inked.  Then I inked the stamp on the ink pad, removed the post-it notes and stamped the inked word on the selected cardstock.  Ink only the word “coffee” with Early Espresso ink and stamp on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Trim to make a strip 1/2″ wide by 2″ long and trim banner ends with Paper Snips.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the banner centered on an oval shape from the Corrugated Elements embellishment pack.

In the same manner, ink only the word “is” with Garden Green ink and stamp on a scrap of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  Punch out with a 1/2″ circle punch and use glue to adhere to the Corrugated oval above and a little overlapping the banner with the word “coffee”.  Adhere the completed embellishment to the Early Espresso panel centered above the pot in the middle.  Ink the full sentiment with Pear Pizzazz ink and stamp on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut the stamped panel in half before die cutting the top and bottom edges using a die from the Lots of Labels Framelits.  To complete the tag, use glue to adhere the two halves of the label to the back of the Early Espresso panel to reveal “happiness” above and “with a friend” below.  Take care to align the two halves so they appear as one long label.  The completed tag is centered side to side and top to bottom on the Wood Grain patterned paper panel of the Coffee Break stack of DSP and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Measure the width, height and depth of the bag to determine the length and width of the Crumb Cake cardstock strips and scoreline placement.  You may need to adjust your cuts and score lines based on the measurements of the bag you are wrapping.  The bag of coffee used in the sample is 9″ tall, 4″ wide and the bag bottom is 3″ deep.  The cardstock strips are 11″ long and 3-1/2″ wide.  The strip for the front is scored at 1″ and 10″.  The strip for the back is scored at 3″.  Fold the front strip so 1″ wraps under the bag and 1″ folds over the top of the bag.  Adhere the 1″ section under the bag to the 3″ section of the back strip, which then extends up to cover the back of the bag.

Cut a 41″ length of Whisper White 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon. Wrap it around the Crumb Cake cardstock wrap and tie a bow on the front near the top edge.  Make sure the ribbon is centered on the strips.  Adhere the completed tag and DSP panel to the front of the wrap and over the ribbon with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Fun New Treat Holder

Stampin’ Up! quality paper crafting products can be used for much more than cards and scrapbooking.  And because the colors in the Designer Series Paper coordinate with the cardstock, ribbon and ink, no need to search through your stash for a match!

 

Such a cute treat holder, right?  And the good news is that it’s quite easy to make using the Envelope Punch Board.  For Chris Slogar’s tutorial on SplitCoastStampers, click here.  After assembling the Mini File Box, I wrapped it with a strip of Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper, secured with Mini Glue Dots.  Then I chose colors from the Birthday Memories DSP and used them on the tag.

 

The sentiment for the tag is from the Eastern Beauty stamp set.  It’s stamped on Whisper White cardstock in Pacific Point ink and cut out with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. This stamped circle is adhered to a scalloped circle of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  They are then adhered to a scalloped circle of Pool Party cardstock with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The completed tag is adhered to the treat box with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Treats were added to a 3″ x 6″ Gusseted Cellophane Bag and tied with a 12″ length of 1/4″ Stitched-Edge Pacific Point Ribbon, which fit perfectly in the treat holder box.

The gumballs are in a 3″ x 6″ Gusseted Cellophane Bag tied with a 12″ length of 1/2″ Finely Woven Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon.  Couldn’t be much easier, but the bag and ribbon make it special.
