Bright Baubles -- Sending Joy

Hello!

Sale-A-Bration ends in just a few more days on September 30th; so I wanted to share another Christmas card using a couple of Sale-A-Bration items that you can earn for FREE with a qualifying purchase:  Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper and Be Dazzled 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper.  Each one of these great items requires a $50 USD merchandise purchase.

Nothing says Christmas like sparkle and shine and the Be Dazzled 6" x 6" Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper is just the ticket for adding bling to this Christmas card.

BrightBaubles_SendingJoy

This card begins with a panel of Peaceful Prints Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper matted with a slightly larger panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock.  The panels were adhered at the center of the Sahara Sand card front.  A strip of Be Dazzled 6" x 6" Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper was matted with a slightly wider strip of Real Red cardstock (with the top and bottom edges of the Designer Series Paper flush with the top and bottom edges of the cardstock) and adhered along the vertical center of the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper Panel (with the top and bottom edges of the strips flush with the top and bottom edges of the Peaceful Prints panel).

A piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock was die cut using the solid round ornament die from the Delicate Baubles dies.  Adhesive Sheets were adhered to the back of two pieces of Real Red cardstock and the "Joy" detailed ornament die was used to die cut the Real Red cardstock.  The adhesive backing was removed from one of the detailed ornament die cuts and the detailed ornament die adhered directly on top of the second detailed ornament die.  The adhesive sheet was removed from the bottom of the stacked detailed ornament dies and the dies adhered at the center of the Evening Evergreen ornament die.  The die was adhered at the center of the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals placed on the right and left sides of the back of the ornament (so that the dimensionals rest only on the Peaceful Prints panel).  A bow of Real Red Sheer Ribbon was adhered at the top of the ornament using Mini Glue Dots.

The "Sending" greeting was stamped on Basic White cardstock using Real Red ink and matted with a slightly larger piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock.  The greeting was adhered above the ornament on the Be Dazzled strip using Mini Glue Dots with the top edge of the Evening Evergreen mat 1/4" below the top edge of the Be Dazzled strip.  The "To You & Yours" greeting was stamped on Basic White cardstock using Real Red ink and matted with a slightly larger piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock.  The greeing was adhered below the ornament on the Be Dazzled strip using Mini Glue Dots with the bottom edge of the Evening Evergreen mat 3/8" above the bottom edge of the Be Dazzled strip.

A strip of the Be Dazzled 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper was adhered across a Basic White cardstock panel with the top edge of the strip 1-1/2" below the top edge of the panel and the right and left edges of the strip flush with the right and left edges of the panel.

A piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock was die cut using the solid round ornament die including the small insert to create a hanger opening at the top of the ornament.  A piece of Real Red cardstock was die cut using the bow with hanging thread die.  Two narrow strips of Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper were adhered across the ornament with the top edge of the upper strip 3/4" from the top (curved piece) of the ornament and the bottom edge of the lower piece 3/8" above the bottom center of the ornament.  Paper Snips were used to trim the strips along the edge of the ornament.  The bow with hanging thread was threaded through the ornament hanger at the top of the ornament and the ornament adhered at the upper center of the Basic White panel with the top of the ornament (curved piece) 3/8" below the top edge of the panel and centered between the right and left sides of the panel.  The thread of the ornament hanger was folded to the back of the panel and adhered in place.  The panel was adhered at the center of the inside sentiment area of the card base.

The "Wishing You A" and "Christmas" sentiments were stamped on narrow strips of Basic White cardstock using Real Red ink.  The "Merry & Bright" sentiment was stamped on a slightly wider strip of Basic White cardstock using Real Red ink.  The strips were adhered to the ornament with "Merry & Bright" across the center of the ornament, "Wishing You A" centered above "Merry & Bright", and "Christmas" centered below "Merry & Bright".

BrightBaubles_SendingJoy_Envelope

A piece of the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper was adhered to the envelope flap of the Medium Basic White Envelope.  Paper Snips were used to trim away the excess paper using the edge of the envelope flap as a guide.

I'll be back in a few days with the Stamp Review Crew with a Blog Hop featuring a number of great ideas using Sale-A-Bration items.

Holly Jolly Wishes -- Jingle All The Way

Hi Everyone!

We are down to the last days of Sale-A-Bration and I wanted to share another quick card made using the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper; one of the great items that you can earn for FREE with a $50 USD merchandise purchase.  But time is limited as Sale-A-Bration ends on September 30th.

When you have a lot of Christmas cards to make, an easy design with great visual impact is always a great option.  I think this card meets both criteria.

HollyJollyWishes_JingleAllTheWay

This card begins with a panel of Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper matted with a slightly larger panel of Basic Black cardstock.  The panels were adhered at the center of the Cherry Cobbler cardstock card front.

The "Jingle All The Way" greeting, from the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set, was stamped at the vertical center of a piece of Basic White cardstock using Cherry Cobbler ink.  Strips of Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper were adhered to the Basic White cardstock above and below the stamped greeting.  The cardstock was die cut with the largest of the straight edge tags with notched top corners (2" x 3-7/8"), from the Tailor Made Tags dies, centering the greeting on the body of the tag.  A piece of Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic Ribbon was wrapped around the tag immediately below the stamped greeting with the ends of the ribbon adhered at the back of the tag.  The tag was adhered to the card front at a jaunty angle using Stampin' Dimensionals with the top of the tag pointing toward the upper left corner of the card front.  A piece of Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic Ribbon was tied into a bow and adhered at the top of the tag using Mini Glue Dots.  

Three Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels were adhered to the card front to create a visual triangle for the greeting on the tag.

HollyJollyWishes_JingleAllTheWay_Inside

The "Have A Holly Jolly Christmas" sentiment was stamped at the upper center of a panel of Basic White cardstock using Cherry Cobbler ink.  A strip of Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper was adhered across the horizontal center of a slightly wider strip of Basic Black cardstock with the right and left sides of the Designer Series Paper flush with the right and left sides of the Basic Black cardstock.  The strips were adhered along the bottom edge of the Basic White panel with the bottom edge of the Basic Black cardstock 1/8" above the bottom edge of the panel and the right and left edges of the strips flush with the right and left edges of the panel.  The panel was adhered at the center of the inside sentiment area of the card base.

HollyJollyWishes_JingleAllTheWay_Envelope

A piece of Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper was adhered to the envelope flap of a Medium Basic White Envelope.  Paper Snips were used to trim away the excess paper using the edge of the envelope flap as a guide.

As you can see, the great designs in the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper carry the weight for this card.  The contrasting colors of the Buffalo Checks in the Garden Green print (with the trees) and in the Cherry Cobbler print (all over checks) certainly make the statement with some very small accents with Rhinestones and ribbon to draw the eye to the greeting on the tag.  When you are making a bunch of cards at one time, simple is always best.

In Your Words -- Stars Shine Down

Hello!

We're down to the final couple of weeks of Sale-A-Bration and I wanted to share a card that combines three Sale-A-Bration products that you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order:  the In Your Words Host stamp set, the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper, and the Be Dazzled 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper.

When I first saw the In Your Words Sale-A-Bration Host stamp set the sentiment that grabbed me by the heart was "Perhaps the stars are openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy" -- a simple message of comfort and hope.  In today's world, I think we can use all the messages of comfort and hope we can get.  This card was designed for a family member who had two significant losses in just a few days.       

InYourWords_StarsShineDown

This card begins with a panel of doodle-lined patterned paper from the Beautifully Penned Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper matted with a slightly larger panel of Basic Black cardstock.  The panels were adhered at the center of the Thick Basic White card front. The "Perhaps the stars are openings..." sentiment was stamped on a piece of Basic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The Basic White cardstock was matted with a slightly larger piece of Basic Black cardstock with the right and left edge of the Basic Black cardstock flush with the right and left edges of the Basic White cardstock and the Basic White cardstock centered between the top and bottom edges of the Basic Black cardstock.  The sentiment was adhered to the card front with the right edge of the sentiment flush with the right edge of the Thick Basic White card front and the bottom edge of the Basic Black edge of the sentiment 13/16" above the bottom edge of the Designer Series Paper panel.

The stars and swirls die from the Stitched Stars dies was used to die cut a piece of Be Dazzled 6" x 6" Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper.  The die cut outline was adhered across the Designer Series Paper panel using teeny tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid adhesive.  One end of the die cut was placed above the top left corner of the sentiment with the opposite end at the upper right corner of the panel.  The 5 solid stars that came out of the die cut were adhered to the Designer Series Paper panel using teeny tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid adhesive:  the largest in the upper left corner, the next largest in the area just below the die cut at the upper right corner, and the remaining 3 stars to create a visual triangle around the sentiment.

InYourWords_StarsShineDown_Inside

The "With Heartfelt Sympathy" sentiment was stamped at the upper center of the inside sentiment area of the card base using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  A strip of Beautifully Penned Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper was adhered below the sentiment with the right side of the strip flush with the right side of the card base and the bottom edge of the strip 3" above the bottom edge of the card base.

Three stars were die cut using single star dies from the Stitched Stars dies to create 1/4", 3/4", and 1-1/2" stars.  The stars were adhered at the left end of the paper strip using teeny tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid adhesive. 

InYourWords_StarsShineDown_Envelope

A piece of Beautifully Penned Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper was adhered to the envelope flap of a Medium Basic White Envelope.  Paper Snips were used to trim away the excess paper using the edge of the envelope flap as a guide.

Delicate Dahlias -- Thank You Kindly

Hello!

Sale-A-Bration is in full swing.  I've shown you a couple of the beautiful paper packs, but I haven't shared any of the great stamp sets.  Today's post focuses on the Delicate Dahlias Sale-A-Bration stamp set.  You can earn this beautiful stamp set with a purchase of $100 USD in Stampin' Up! merchandise.  The detail in these stamp images is just amazing!

Since I used a Fall theme for my last blog post for the Stamp Review Crew, I thought I would continue the theme with this card--choosing colors that evoke a Fall feel.

DelicateDahlias_ThankYouKindly

This card begins with a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  A dot of Bumblebee reinker was placed in the lid of the Bumblebee stamp pad and diluted with water.  The bristles of a toothbrush were lightly tapped into the diluted reinker and then flicked over the cardstock panel by lightly rubbing my thumb across the bristles.  This process was repeated with Cinnamon Cider ink.  I kept the toothbrush about 10 inches above the panel to keep the droplets small.  The closer you get to the panel and the wetter the toothbrush bristles, the larger the drops of color will be.  The panel was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered at the center of a slightly larger mat of Bumblebee cardstock.  A piece of Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon was wrapped around the panels and tied into a bow near the left side of the panels.  The bottom edge of the ribbon is 1-1/2" above the bottom edge of the Very Vanilla panel.

Now it's time to make a bunch of flowers and leaves.  All the flowers and leaves were stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with Paper Snips.

  • Bumblebee ink for the large detailed dahlia image with Cinnamon Cider ink for the corresponding outline image
  • Old Olive ink for the large three leaf detailed image with Mossy Meadow ink for the corresponding outline image.  Four of the leaf images were used for the card front
  • Flirty Flamingo ink for the small detailed flower image with Poppy Parade ink for the corresponding outline image.  Two of these images were used--one for the card front and one for the inside sentiment area of the card
  • Rich Razzleberry ink for the small detailed flower image with Blackberry Bliss ink for the corresponding outline image
  • Pumpkin Pie ink for the small detailed flower image with Cajun Craze ink for the corresponding outline image

The leaves were adhered to the Very Vanilla panel:  one at the upper left corner, one to the right of the first set of leaves, and one below the first set of leaves.  The Bumblebee/Cinnamon Cider dahlia was adhered at the center of the leaves using Stampin' Dimensionals.  The Flirty Flamingo/Poppy Parade small flower was adhered to the Very Vanilla panel below the Bumblebee/Cinnamon Cider flower to the right of the leaves.  Note that part of the flower might be under the ribbon.  The fourth set of leaves was adhered to the right of the Flirty Flamingo/Poppy Parade flower with the stem slightly under the Bumblebee/Cinnamon Cider flower.  The Rich Razzleberry/Blackberry Bliss small flower was adhered over the leaves to the right of the Flirty Flamingo/Poppy Parade flower and slightly overlapping the outside petals of the Bumblebee/Cinnamon Cider flower using Stampin' Dimensionals.  The Pumpkin Pie/Cajun Craze small flower was adhered near the upper right corner of the panel using Stampin' Dimensionals.

The "Thank You Kindly" greeting was stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using Cinnamon Cider ink.  The Very Vanilla cardstock was die cut with the 1-3/8" straight edge circle die from the Layering Circles dies and matted with a piece of Cinnamon Cider cardstock die cut with the 1-1/2" scallop circle die.  The greeting circle was adhered to the Very Vanilla panel using Stampin' Dimensionals with the right side of the circles 1/4" from the right side of the Very Vanilla panel and the bottom edge of the circles 7/16" above the bottom edge of the Very Vanilla panel.

Three small, gold Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots were adhered to the card front to create a visual triangle for the greeting.

DelicateDahlias_ThankYouKindly_Inside

The small flowers and small leaves were stamped at the upper right corner of the Very Vanilla cardstock panel.  

  • Rich Razzleberry ink for the small detailed flower image with Blackberry Bliss ink for the corresponding outline image.  The top edge of the flower is 1/2" below the top edge of the panel and flush with the right side of the panel
  • Pumpkin Pie ink for the small detailed flower image with Cajun Craze ink for the corresponding outline image.  The top edge of the flower is flush with the top edge of the panel and the right edge of the flower is 1" from the right edge of the panel
  • The small leaves were stamped along the edge of the flowers with Old Olive for the detailed small leaf image and Mossy Meadow for the corresponding outline image
  • The cut out Flirty Flamingo/Poppy Parade small flower was adhered at the upper right corner of the panel

The panel was adhered at the center of the inside sentiment area of the card base.

DelicateDahlias_ThankYouKindly_Envelope

The Bumblebee/Cinnamon Cider dahlia was stamped at the upper left corner and at the lower right corner of the envelope flap of the Medium Very Vanilla envelope.  Place a piece of scrap paper between the envelope flap and the body of the envelope to keep the stamping confined to the envelope flap.

The fussy cutting for the flowers adds a little time to the construction of this card, but I think it was well worth the time.  I'll be back soon with another idea for using the Delicate Dahlias Sale-A-Bration stamp set.

Looking forward to seeing you!

Hello!  Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop featuring the Beauty of Friendship stamp set.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

BeautyOfFriendship_ThinkingOfYou

The Stamp Review Crew is an international group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who gather for a blog hop the first, third, and (sometimes the fifth) Mondays of the month to review a single stamp set.  The number of participants varies from hop to hop, but the ideas are plentiful as we take a stamp set through its paces.  By the time you've traveled through the hop, you are sure to find a number of innovative ways to use the featured stamp set.  So sit back, relax, and get ready to start pinning ideas to your Pinterest board!

To see the line up of artists for today's hop, click here.  If you've already joined the hop and are traveling forward, you've arrived from from Mike's blog where you were presented with an amazing project to inspire your creativity.  If you're traveling backwards through the hop, you've seen Lou's project and are ready to CASE!

I've been seeing a lot of cards with a Fall theme but it's hard for me to get into the Fall spirit.  Here in my part of Florida we have one season -- Summer.  However, there are degrees of Summer that correspond to the rest of the seasons--it's just that they are so subtle and happen so fast that if you aren't paying attention you'd never know that they happened.  To see Spring, Fall, and Winter, people in Florida who live south of St. Augustine really need to travel north for the experience.  These days, traveling isn't much of a option; so I guess if I want a glimpse of Fall, I need to make it.

BeautyOfFriendship_ThinkingOfYou

The Beauty of Friendship stamp set is part of the Beauty of the Earth Product Suite.  This card uses all of the elements of the Beauty of the Earth product suite:  Beauty of Friendship stamp set, Beautiful Trees dies, Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper, and the Bark 3D Embossing Folder.  

This card begins with a card base of Mossy Meadow cardstock.  The card front was embossed with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder.  A strip of Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper with Misty Moonlight, Cinnamon Cider, Cajun Craze, and Mossy Meadow leaves was adhered across the card front with the right and left edges of the paper strip flush with the right and left edges of the card front and the bottom edge of the paper strip 1" above the bottom edge of the card front.

The small tree die was used to die cut a piece of Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper with a Soft Suede tree trunk pattern four times.  Three of the trees were inserted between a piece of Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper with Mossy Meadow and Old Olive that resembles grass that was torn into three strips and adhered along the bottom edge of a panel of Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper with Misty Moonlight and Basic White that resembles the sky.  The tree pieces and torn strips were adhered to the panel using teeny tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid adhesive.  Note that the left tree was adhered behind the torn strip closest to the panel, the middle tree was adhered behind the torn strip in the middle, and the right tree was adhered behind the torn strip at the front.  The panel was die cut with the 3-1/2" x 4-7/8" Rectangle Stitched die.  

Three pieces of Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper with a mottled color blend of Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze, Cinnamon Cider, Mossy Meadow, and Old Olive was die cut with the tree leaves die.  Each of the die cut tree leaves was then die cut two times with the small tree top die.  Collect all the little tree leaf pieces that are left over from the tree leaf die cuts.  Adhere two of the tree top die cuts per tree on the panel placing one to the left and one to the right to cover the branches of the tree die.  Teeny tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid adhesive were used to adhere the tree top dies.  Adhere some of the tiny leftover pieces from the tree leaf dies around the bottom of the two forward trees using teeny tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid adhesive.

The "Thinking of you" greeting was stamped on a strip of Basic White cardstock using Night of Navy ink.  The greeting was die cut with the narrow rectangle die from the Beautiful Trees dies and matted with a slightly larger mat of Night of Navy cardstock.  The greeting was adhered to the panel with the right edge of the greeting flush with the right edge of the panel and the bottom edge of the greeting 11/16" above the bottom edge of the panel.  The panel was matted with a slightly larger panel of Night of Navy cardstock and then with a slightly larger mat of Cajun Craze cardstock.  The panels were adhered to the card front with the right edge of the Cajun Craze panel 1/8" from the right edge of the card front and the bottom edge of the Cajun Craze panel 1/8" above the bottom edge of the card front.

BeautyOfFriendship_ThinkingOfYou_Inside

A narrow strip of Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper with Misty Moonlight, Cinnamon Cider, Cajun Craze, and Mossy Meadow leaves was adhered across a Basic White panel with the right and left edges of the paper strip flush with the right and left edges of the panel and the bottom edge of the paper strip 3/8" above the bottom edge of the panel.  The panel was adhered at the center of the inside sentiment area of the card base.

The fourth tree die was adhered along the left side of the panel with the bottom of the tree trunk 1/16" from the bottom of the panel and left side of the tree trunk 3/4" from the left side of the panel.  Adhere large leftover pieces from the tree leaf dies over the branches of the tree trunk using teeny tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid adhesive.

BeautyOfFriendship_ThinkingOfYou_Envelope

A piece of Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper with Misty Moonlight, Cinnamon Cider, Cajun Craze, and Mossy Meadow leaves was adhered to the envelope flap of a Medium Basic White Envelope.  Paper Snips were used to trim away the excess paper using the edge of the envelope flap as a guide.
