Stampin’ Up! Truly Tailored Classy Guy

The stamps in the Truly Tailored stamp set pair beautifully with the classic masculine patterns featured in the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper making it so easy to put together classy cards for men.  Don’t miss out – the True Gentleman Suite is one of the Mega Bundle specials I am offering for a limited time!

My card layout was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch! #255

To begin, I used SNAIL to adhere a small print panel from the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper to a panel of Tranquil Tide card stock.  I then adhered a striped panel of True Gentleman Designer Series Paper to a panel of Night of Navy card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to create an accent strip.  I adhered the accent strip to the front panel with Liquid Glue and adhered the completed front panel to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Truly Tailored stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with Night of Navy ink.  I used Paper Snips to fussy-cut the sentiment along the stamped outline and then used Liquid Glue to adhere it to a panel of Night of Navy card stock I had punched with the hexagonal Tailored Tag punch.  I fussy-cut a bow tie from the True Gentleman DSP and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the tag over the image of the comb.  The completed tag is adhered to the accent strip with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I threaded a length of Linen Thread through a faux wood button from the True Gentleman Button pack and tied a knot.  I then adhered the button to the accent strip with a Mini Glue Dot.

The sentiment inside the card is from the Truly Tailored stamp set, stamped on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with Night of Navy ink.  I used SNAIL to adhere the stamped panel to a panel of Tranquil Tide card stock.  I cut a strip of True Gentleman DSP featuring bow ties to trim the interior panel and adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  To finish, I used SNAIL to adhere the completed panel to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Painted with Love for the Inkin’ Krew Team 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 “Love”.  Here is the card I created:

The Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper has sophisticated designs accented with Gold Foil on one side and brushstroke imagery on the other side.  Each gorgeous paper can stand alone, but also pairs beautifully with the others in the collection.

This card layout was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments #280

Begin by adhering a 3″x 3″ panel of Painted with Love Specialty DSP to panel of Melon Mambo cardstock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then cut a 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Painted with Love Specialty DSP and punch both ends with the Triple Banner Punch.  Adhere the punched strip to the 1-5/8″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Melon Mambo cardstock with Liquid Glue and trim the ends with Paper Snips, leaving a 1/16″ border showing along the punched ends.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Whisper White cardstock to the front of the Melon Mambo card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using the heart die from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies, cut one heart from Gold Foil and two hearts from Melon Mambo cardstock.  Stack the hearts together and adhere the layers with dabs of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.   

Use the “love” die from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets set to cut two from Melon Mambo cardstock.  Stack the sentiments together and adhere the layers with dabs of Liquid Glue.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the square layer to the left center of the card front.  Add Dimensionals to the right end of the banner and liquid glue to the left side and adhere to the card front over the top of the square layer.  Adhere the layered heart to the banner layer as shown with dabs of Liquid Glue.  Then use Liquid Glue to adhere the “love” sentiment over the heart.  Three Gold Metallic Enamel hearts add the finishing touch.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a Whisper White panel to the card interior.  Use the second to smallest curvy heart die from the Sweet & Sassy Thinlits Die set to cut one heart from Melon Mambo cardstock and one heart from Painted with Love Specialty DSP.  Adhere the hearts to the lower left corner of the card liner, overlapping as shown.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Soiree Silver Box For You

The new Sweet Soirée Suite has beautiful Specialty Designer Series Paper.  What makes it special?  Silver Foil.  Each sheet has handpainted designs with Silver Foil accents on one side and colorful printed images on the other side.  The Sweet Soiree Suite includes Silver Mini Gable Boxes.  They are 4″ x 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ – a perfect size – not too big, not too small, and food safe.  They are super easy to assemble, too.  Oh yes, and so fun to decorate.

Adhere a panel of Suite Soiree Specialty DSP to a panel of Berry Burst cardstock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the completed layer to the front of the assembled box.  Tie a bow with Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon from the Sweet Soiree Suite.  Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere the bow to the front of the box, as shown.  I like to add another glue dot or two to the tails of the bow to create some permanent ruffles.

Stamp the twig with berries image from the Cake Soiree stamp set in Old Olive ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  Rub across the stamped image with an Embossing Buddy.  Then use Versamark ink on the For You stamp from the Cake Soiree stamp set and stamp over the stamped twig.  Apply Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and tap off the excess.  Use the Heat Tool on the #2 setting to heat the embossing powder until it is smooth and shiny.   Allow to cool completely and die cut with the largest floral outline die from the Sweet Cake Framelits Dies.  Use the same die on a panel of Marina Mist cardstock to cut a matching “circle”.  Layer the two die cuts together and punch a 1/16″ hole on one side near the edge for the twine. Cut a 5″ length of Silver Baker’s Twine and thread it through the two tags plus a silver leaf from the Petal Passion Embellishments. Tie the assembled tag to one handle section of the box before closing the ends.

Stampin’ Up! Petal Palette Embellished Notecard

I received some wonderful black & white monogrammed notecards as a gift from my Secret Santa and embellished one with the sweet little bird and the die cut branch from the Petal Palette Bundle.

I stamped the bird image from the Petal Palette stamp set with Memento Black ink on Whisper White Thick cardstock, then colored it with the Bronze and Ivory Stampin Blends alcohol markers.  I cut it out using the coordinating die from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies.  Then I cut the large branch from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies from Old Olive cardstock.  I used my Paper Snips to “prune” the branch a bit to modify the shape for this card.

I glued the branch to the card front using small dabs of Multipurpose Liquid Glue after rearranging it as shown.  The Bird is then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I used Linen Thread to make a 5-looped bow and adhered it with a Mini Glue Dot.  Done!

I love everything about the new Petal Passion Suite – the brushstroke-style images and sentiments in the stamp set, the dies, the Petal Passsion Designer Series Paper, Petal Pair embossing folders, Petal Passion embellishments and Whisper White 1/4″ Organza ribbon.  They will all be available starting January 3rd, when the 2018 Occasions Catalog goes live.  AND Sale-A-Bration starts the same day!  Yippee!!!

COMING SOON!  Stay tuned for an upcoming Special Offer from me for the Petal Passion Suite

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate You Sneak Peek Anniversary Card for the Inkin’ Krew Team 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”.  Here is the card I created:

This is a Sneak Peek of the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies (#146840) available in the Sale-A-Bration brochure starting on January 3, 2018.  The set features three awesome dies and has a coordinating stamp set called Amazing You (#147212), also in Sale-A-Bration.  So they both can be earned – free with purchase – Yippee!

The sentiment is die cut from a panel of Gold Foil and adhered to a panel of Basic Black cardstock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  This layer is adhered to a panel of Gold Foil with Liquid Glue.  Use the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch on Basic Black cardstock to prepare two lengths of the paper “ribbon”  Adhere the punched trim to the back of the sentiment panel along the top and bottom edges with Liquid Glue.

Use the Large Number Framelits to cut the numbers twice – once from Gold Foil and a second time from Basic Black cardstock.  Adhere the black layer behind the Gold Foil layer, slightly offset to the left to create a shadow and add depth.  Adhere a panel of Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper to a panel of Basic Black cardstock with SNAIL.   Now adhere the layered sentiment panel close to the lower edge of this panel with Liquid Glue.  

Tie a bow with Gold 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon and adhere close to the top edge of this panel with Mini Glue Dots.  Lastly, use Liquid Glue to adhere the numbers below the bow and above the sentiment panel.  The completed art panel is adhered to the Very Vanilla card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Adhere a narrow strip of the Designer Series Paper along the left side of a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Use Basic Black Archival ink to stamp the sentiments from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set to the panel before adhering it to a Basic Black cardstock mat with SNAIL.  The completed layer is adhered to the card interior with SNAIL, as well.

There you go, an elegant card to “Celebrate” a 50th wedding anniversary, agreed?
