Torn Paper Window Card and Free Shipping Day

Yep! Today (Tuesday, June 21st) is a Free Shipping Day!

But first, learn how to make a “Torn Paper Window Card” using something old and something new:

These greeting cards are made easy with just layers of card stock and beautiful Designer Series Paper! Here’s the video from my Facebook live last week teaching you how fun they are to create:

While the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper is brand new, the Symbols of Fortune Designer Series Paper and is about to retire and is half price in the Last Chance sale for retiring items in the January-June Mini Catalog. And if you loved the font in the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set used on the first card, it’s also retiring in just a few days!

The Last Chance Sale is just one reason you will want to check your list and shop today during the Free Shipping Day – If you have kids complaining of boredom this summer, grab a few craft kits from our Kit Collection BOGO 50% off sale to pull out for a few hours of creative fun for anyone!

Remember to check your basic supplies (adhesives, card stock, ink refills and envelopes), too. Then call a friend and combine orders, if needed, to meet the minimum $75 order.

Order online in my Stampin’ Store and if your order is less than $150, use Host Code BQDYCMJP …If your order is over $150, don’t use my host code, but choose Stampin’ Rewards for yourself immediately!

New at SU: He’s the Man Box

It’s SUITE SUMMER STAMPING for our June New at SU! hop, which means we each chose a suite from the Annual catalog to showcase, and created a summer-themed project(s) for you using the supplies from that suite. Don’t miss any of the great projects…hop through them ALL and socialize with us by leaving a comment about what you like the most!

I always need more masculine cards, gifts and projects, so I am showing off the versatility of the He’s the Man Suite. While I made Father’s Day projects for that summer celebration, these projects can easily be changed into birthday or anniversary gifts.

The first thing I thought was that the grilling stamp “Holy Smokes You’re Amazing” would look good on a box of grilling spice blends, so I created this box for the Master of the Grill!

In the video tutorial, I explain HOW I made this box, just in case the spices you choose to add to the box are a different size. Or you can make the box and use a different piece of the Designer Series Paper and roll up a tie to fit inside the box and change out the embellishments. It’s pretty simple, but with so many possibilities!

It’s a good sized box from one piece of 11″ x 7″ Sahara Sand card stock plus a 3.5″ x 7″ piece of Designer Series Paper. The finished box size is 4.5″ x 3.5″ x 1.75″:

BONUS PROJECT: Last Monday, I used the same He’s The Man Suite supplies to create a simple mini album on my Facebook Page, and while it’s not my best video, you get the gist and can very quickly create a similar album in just a few minutes with all the fun die cuts included in the Designer Series Paper!

Don’t stop here! Here’s are the other New at SU! Design Team members with their SUITE summer projects to share with you:

With You I’m Never Lost

Cody and I recently returned from a 6+ week road trip back to see our kids and grandkids in Maryland. He joked that we planned to drive out together, but if things didn’t go well, one of us could fly home 😂 Luckily, we did remarkably well, and enjoyed discovering so many amazing places across the US:

It seems fitting for our relationship that he’s the person I love to “get lost” with– but with him, I’m home.

This week’s #gdp346 sketch from the Global Design Project blog was perfect for a card I’m going to save for our Anniversary:

Cody teases me that “every day is an adventure” together, so the compass stamp was fitting. I LOVE the die cut pieces in the Designer Series Paper and I used one of them as the focal point.

Sunshine and Songbird Mashup

Often I get stuck on trying to ONLY use the stamps in one stamp set, but this card was inspired by the sensational Rays of Light background stamp and a few extra songbirds I had left over from cards I had made for a swap with my team…it’s a MASHUP of 3 different new products and just makes me smile!

The Opal Rounds embellishments add just the right amount of light-catching sparkle.

Do your part to brighten the world…mail a hand-stamped card just because!

Watercolor Inspired by Charlet

The saying, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” is true for the card I created today, inspired by a card from demonstrator Charlet Mallett on the Global Design Project #344:

I really loved her watercolored image and knowing that some of you are intimidated by watercoloring, I wanted to make it really simple. This is simple enough that ANYONE could do it:

I stamped the flower image from the Blessings of Home stamp set in opposite corners of a 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ piece of Watercolor paper (the key to a beautiful watercolored background), then used ink pads from the Subtles color family as my palette to pick up the color (from the inside of the lid, see example here) using Water Painters.

What I love about watercoloring is: It’s MESSY and BEAUTIFUL!

TIP: Keep a piece of scratch paper and a paper towel at hand to “practice” on and wipe off your Water Painter when you move to a new color…just squeeze the barrel to run the water and wipe the brush until no color transfers to the towel.

Mounted on a piece of Basic White card stock as a frame (3-3/4″ x 5″) and then attached to the front of a Pool Party card base, it’s a simple card that makes you feel like Picasso and the sentiment embossed in white on black card stock really stands out against the watercolored background.

Give this technique a try soon!

New at SU! In-Color Happiness

New Catalog, New Colors, New Stamps…and we can’t wait to share it all with you! Today we are featuring the 2022-2024 In-Colors that made their debut this month and as you visit the website of each of our International demonstrator design team, make sure you PIN your favorites to remember for later.

Bright and bold, I adore these new colors, and I wanted to show how lovely three of them (Parakeet Party, Sweet Sorbet and Orchard Oasis) coordinate in WATERCOLOR:

The Happiness Abounds bundle was perfect for this simple technique! Here are the easy steps:

  1. Heat emboss the flowers and leaves with white embossing powder on thick Basic White card stock.
  2. Squeeze your ink pads (while closed) to get a bit of ink inside the lid of your case, then open the ink pad and pick up a bit of ink from the lid using a water painter. (Don’t pick up ink directly from your ink pad). TIP: Start with a light wash of color and add more as desired..
  3. Use the dies to cut out the watercolored flora using the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine and add to your project with liquid glue or dimensionals.

Putting these flowers onto one of our new striped Emboss Treat bags makes me ready for the next birthday or wedding gift I need to wrap.

Before you move on to Andrea’s pretty project (or click anywhere on the list to see more In-Color Inspiration), tell me which In-Color matches your personality!? For me, I think it’s going to be Tahitian Tide (which I didn’t even use on this project!).

Heart & Home Quick Cards

While on vacation, I took the Heart & Home Memories & More Cards & Envelopes and the coordinating Card Pack along with a few pieces of ribbon to create 20 fast cards while visiting family. There is no stamping involved because the card pack has die cut stickers along with the sentiments on the cards!

There are 10 large striped cards (6-1/4″ x 4-1/4″) with coordinating envelopes and 10 small cards with a wood grain finish on the front and Cinnamon Cider envelopes (3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ card size):

I turned some of the cards inside-out (patterns on the inside with an added panel of card stock to write on, in the case of the Misty Moonlight stripes) and here are my 10 large finished cards:

And the 10 smaller note cards, which I plan to keep in my purse and use to #CelebrateEverydayHeroes during May and June as we recognize and thank those who do simple kind acts each day…

Find out more about the Celebrate Everyday Heroes campaign, along with another quick card or tag idea, in this short video:
