More Love to Mail

But wait! There’s MORE! Yesterday I shared a Pink/Red/White card (or Flirty Flamingo, Real Red and Whisper White), but if you haven’t had time to watch my Lunchtime Live Crafting Videos on Facebook each Monday, you may have missed some of the other Valentine themed projects I’ve been creating from the From My Heart Suite by Stampin’ Up!~ so I thought I’d share some here.

If you have a hard time choosing which side of your Designer Series Paper to use on a card, make THESE CARDS instead, because you don’t have to choose! You can see one side on the front of the card and enjoy the other side of the DSP on the inside of the card! IMG_4398-(W)

They are simple enough to make with elementary students, too!

A few weeks ago, I demonstrated a few ideas for a party or small gift and made this fun tin with the same suite stuff:IMG_4385-(W)

One thing I really appreciate is that if you LOVE all these coordinating products, Stampin’ Up! has made it very easy to get them all (with a bit of a discount) with just one item from my Stampin’ Store! Of course, you can still pick and choose the products you like best (or order more of the things you LOVE).

Thanks for stopping by and may all the love you send come back to you!

Heartfelt for Valentine’s Day

Are you ready to spread some love? That was my first thought when I saw the Global Design Project Color Challenge, since those colors just happened to be out on my desk anyway:

This is the card that was born:

You may notice an image that isn’t in the Heartfelt stamp set (the heart outline that says “with love”)…that was from the January “I’ll Bee Yours” Paper Pumpkin kit and coordinates with the Heart Punch Bundle, and it felt perfect for the project:IMG_4394-(W)

If you are planning to shoot a few Valentine cards off, you need to get your supplies ordered soon! IMG_4401

What’s New at SU! Peaceful Poppies Suite

Whats new (2)Hi there, crafty friend! With the NEW January – June Mini Catalog, our international group of demonstrators are coming together to showcase the Peaceful Poppies Suite, and trust me when I say, they are irresistible (the stamps, the projects AND the demonstrators!)

JAN_JUNE MINI“I don’t need any more floral stamps,” I told myself when I went to OnStage last November, when Stampin’ Up! released the mini catalog to demonstrators. “I’ve got plenty, so I’m NOT going to buy any more.” Then I saw THAT COVER, and my willpower went about as far as Dorothy across the poppy field in Oz…

Today I’m sharing a photo frame project using the Peaceful Moments bundle. You can order this bundle and save 10% when you get the stamps and coordinating dies together ~OR~ you can let the poppies work their magic on you and succumb to the entire Peaceful Poppies SUITE (like yours truly).

IMG_4349-(W)

I found this adorable wooden photo frame at Dollar Tree (only a buck!) and used the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to cover the front – I demonstrated how to do it on different frame in my Monday Lunchtime Crafting Live on my Facebook page.

IMG_4347-(W)

The dies make these stunning layered flowers and leaves and I just couldn’t stop adding layers!

A 3/4″ strip of copper foil sheet (stamped with StazOn ink) made a perfect “name plate” for the bottom of the frame: IMG_4344-(W)

To create the ends of the faux plate, just stick it into your Everyday Label Punch like this:

IMG_4353

The photo is from our trip to OntarioCanada to visit Ed & Carolyn Helder last September. I met Carolyn through Stampin’ Up! years ago and we’ve become dear friends and this was certainly one of our most enjoyable vacations OF ALL TIME! How grateful I am for the connections created through crafting. (Carolyn, if you see this, pretend to be surprised when it comes later for your birthday)

I’ll share the supply list below if you happen to pick up a frame from the dollar store, but if you are ready to pop along our blog hop, enjoy Judi’s poppy-themed project next, or back up to Brenda’s Blog.

Best Catch: What’s New At SU! Blog Hop

It’s easy to make a frilly, pretty card…but sometimes it’s a challenge to create something for the guys. Never fret: We are here to help!

whats new at su header

These are some talented demonstrators from all over the globe who have come together to jump-start your “masculine” card making skills, so make sure you hop through all the blogs and tell us what you love and what you want to see more of!

I’m sharing a gift card holder I created for my husband’s birthday using the BEST CATCH bundle from the Occasions Catalog:

 

To create the card base, I used a piece of 12″ x 5.5″ Very Vanilla card stock and scored it at 4-1/4″ and 8-1/2″. On the last panel, you can cut diagonally OUT from the 8-1/2″ score mark and then fold it inside the card, adhering it to the bottom of the card with Tear & Tape adhesive, forming a pocket. You could insert cash, a gift card or a photo into the pocket. Not just for birthdays, but Father’s Day or Anniversaries, too!

Watermarked1(2019-05-01-1205)

For the front of the card, I started with a 3-5/8″ x 4-7/8″ panel of Very Vanilla card stock and cut a mask from a piece of scratch paper, laid it over the panel about 1/3 of the way up and sponged water with Pool Party ink. Keep the other piece of the mask to lay over the water and sponge the sandy shore above the water with Crumb Cake ink.

Next you’ll cover your sand with a mask and sponge a sunset: I started with Poppy Parade and then blended in Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, and Daffodil Delight ink with my sponges. Finally, sponge Night of Navy all the way around the edges and layer it on a 3-3/4″ x 5″ Navy Mat.

The fish is stamped in Black Memento Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends, then cut, along with the reeds, using the coordinating dies. I love blending different colors on the fish! HINT: Save 10% when you purchase the stamps & dies together in a bundle by June 3rd.

Diane always has something amazing to share, so hop over to her blog next, or skip back to Cheryl’s blog to see her guy-inspired project~ Both featuring the Geared Up Garage product suite!

Sale-a-Bration Coordination

Watermarked6(2019-03-26-1002)

It’s been fun, but the Sale-a-Bration party is winding down…with only 5 days left to add a free item (or two) to your collection, I wanted to show off a few very versatile items that will allow you to craft through all four seasons of the year, but HURRY, many of them are only here until March 31, 2019!!

painted

The Painted Seasons Sale-a-Bration bundle has DinsINKtive stamp images for Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall, along with a pack of coordinating Designer Series Paper that is a splendid variety (those toadstools are adorable!). You can choose this bundle FREE with a $100 U.S. order, and the other supplies to create these cards can help you collect a qualifying order!

To make the coordination and your crafting even easier, there is a matching framelit die set for the flowers and leaves and the More Than Words stamp set has greetings for multiple celebrations (and which, coincidentally, has sentiments for almost ALL of our S-A-B 2019 stamp sets): Both are available to purchase for a only few more days.

Let’s take a look at the details of these cards:

It’s a simple fold that really makes your card more exciting to open and the Stitched Rectangle Framelits are a necessity in your die cutting collection.

Make the world a brighter place: Stamp a card and mail it to someone today!

What’s New at SU! Blog Hop: Rectangle Stitched Framelits

whats new at su header

Thanks for joining us as we “hop” through the 2019 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog ~ This worldwide group of demonstrators are thrilled to share exciting new creative ideas with you!

There are few things as versatile in your craft stash as “Basic Shapes” tools, so I’m delighted to showcase the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies:

148551g

One of the things I love about these framelits is that they cut a rectangle, but leave stitching on the inside AND outside of the shape!

Watermarked2(2019-02-06-1439)

Let’s learn how to make a landscape Lever Card using your rectangle framelits and the Amazing Life stamp set (bundle both items together and you save 10%!).

Watermarked3(2019-02-06-1440)

For this card you’ll also need:

  • Card base (I used Granny Apple Green card stock): 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/5″
  • Inside layer (white): 4″ x 9-1/2″ scored at 3″, 6″ and 9″
  • Designer Series Paper-DSP- (I used Tropical Escape): 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • One more piece of white card stock for front layer
  • Ink: Granny Apple Green, Shaded Spruce, Night of Navy
  • Big Shot

Apply adhesive **just around the outside edge** of your DSP and adhere to front of card, then cut frame out with the Big Shot and separate the two pieces you cut out.

Stamp the inside layer (white) and fold into a “Z” and adhere the 3″ panel to the inside  of the open card toward the right end (see photo above). Next, mark the 1/2″ tab through the window as shown (below left).

 

Cut out between the lines and along the score line with your scissors. I used Tear & Tape adhesive on the small tabs, then adhered the tabs to the front of the card just by closing the card. (Above, right)

Apply adhesive JUST TO THE WHITE layer you see through the front window and lay the green rectangle you cut out at the beginning right back into that opening. (It will only stick where the adhesive is on the white layer.)

Stamp and embellish a smaller rectangle to layer on top of front (swinging) panel.

Watermarked5(2019-02-06-1440)

I used the extra rectangle of DSP for the middle panel of the inside of the card…just used the other side of the pattern, so there’s very little waste! Watermarked4(2019-02-06-1440)

Your comments or questions about this card are welcome! Then continue on your Occasions Catalog tour with Pat or pop back to see Anke’s creativity.
