Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Fun Fold With Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a theme challenge from Ann – and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!  And – fair warning – the video is 1 hour and 20 minutes – but…the card making is pretty fast.  The bulk of the video is a sneak peek at my pre-order from the 2020 Aug – Dec Mini Catalog – which will be available for customers to order on 4 August!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Sneak Peek for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is For the Boys/Men!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

Because I really just couldn’t help myself, I pulled out a new bundle – well the Suite, really – all available on 3 Jun!  My card today showcases the wunnermus new World of Good Suite – anchored by the Beautiful World stamp set and bundled World Map dies.  And this suite is where you’ll find the amazing World of Good Specialty DSP and my new favorite thing…Antiqued Corners & Slides.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with some of the beautiful Mossy Meadow paper from the World of Good Specialty DSP that I matted on Early Espresso for the card front.  A smaller piece, also matted on Early Espresso, created the middle panel.

Next, I used a square Stitched Shapes Die to cut down one of the great smaller cards in the new Beautiful World Memories & More Card Pack and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the circle die in the World Map Dies, I cut a circle from the same scripty design in the World of Good Specialty DSP.  I used the detailed die (this is the one with North America – but there’s ALSO a die featuring the other half of the world!!) to cut a Gold Foil world.

I adhered that to the DSP circle with Liquid Glue and popped it onto the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I threaded some of the new 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim – also part of this Suite and available on 3 Jun – thru an Antiqued Slide and then adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot and a little Liquid Glue.

To finish off, I added an Antiqued Corner at each corner of the scripty panel with a Glue Dot (don’t you think they make it look like a really cool and elegant desk pad?!? Ha – you do now even if you didn’t before!! ) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used more of the scripty World of Good Specialty DSP and, with my Stamparatus, added a sentiment from the Beautiful World stamp set in Early Espresso.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Early Espresso mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got an Early Espresso world map image from the Beautiful World stamp set on the front…

…and more of the Mossy Meadow World of Good Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Okay – who’s with me here?!  World of Good is a SUPER wonderful suite – filled with vintage and masculine-oriented images and the World of Good Specialty paper is just….swoon-worthy!  The Beautiful World stamp set – with the bundled World Map Dies will let you create cards for thank you’s, writers, travelers and just because!

I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!  You’ll be able to pick up all the new Suite goodies on 3 Jun (unless you Join Now – and then…you could pick them today.  Just sayin’…).

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Oasis Memories Aloha!

Good morning!  It’s day….whatever!…of the Big Social Distancing of 2020.  It’s hard for me to keep track – since I work from home, the only real difference is severely curtailed trips to the grocery!  And no – “let’s call the Martins and get dinner tonight” for a while.  Which I DO miss.  And our friends just postponed their April wedding…which made me sad. 🙁   But – we’re all healthy and safe.  And won’t run out of food or…craft supplies any time soon. 😉

Speaking of – one of my very favorite suites in the Jan-Jun Mini Catalog is the Tropical Oasis.  I used that one – or parts of it! – today for my card.  And – the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack is the star of this show!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Now – this is a great card if you’ve got a party or some event that you need to go to and would like to NOT have inky fingers!

That’s right – no ink.  So stamping!  A little fussy cutting and embossing.  A die cut or two.  And…that’s it!  So….hang on – this is a quickie!

I started with a piece of Pool Party card stock that I embossed in the wonderful Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder, then matted on Real Red for the card front.

With SNAIL, I adhered a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon.

From the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack, I pulled out two of the small cards with the yummy looking tropical coconut drink.

From one of the panels, I fussy cut the entire image.  I fussy cut just the umbrella from the second panel.

I popped the image over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I popped the fussy cut umbrella over the first image with more Dimensionals.

Using the sentiment die from In The Tropics, I cut three of the Aloha sentiment from Real Red and stacked them all up with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the stacked sentiment to the coconut – added three red gems from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels….and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used two stickers from the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Soft Suede card base, and to adhere the card front to the front of the card, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple more Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack stickers on the front…

…and a little Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love all the fun and dare I say…luscious?…designs to be found in the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack.  And – although I didn’t use it on this card – the Timeless Tropical stamp is a wonderful set filled with even more tropical images!

If you don’t have this suite – quick take advantage of the last days of Sale-A-Bration and add it to your stash (while earning FREE goodies!).  I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Signs of Spring at Finn’s house.

You probably think that last one is a picture of the beautiful pink azalea…

Well – it IS beautiful – but…look past it to the pond.  It’s really a picture of the most TRUE sign of Spring in the South.

Pine pollen EVERYWHERE!!  LOL

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Layers Glamper Greetings

Hey, y’all!  Guess what day it is?

No, silly – not Hawwmp Day (thank goodness!) – it’s FRIDAY!!  I say again – thank GOODNESS!!! 🙂

This Sunday is our local All Things Stamping Sale.  Maybe – maybe! – I’ll have everything priced and in some sort of semblance of order and have some sort of shot at getting it all there and set up.  Be thinking good thoughts, y’all!!  I’ll need ’em!

My card for today is the result of another request from my Mom – I like requests.  It helps give me a focus and I need as much focus as I can get these days!  Her friend is leaving soon for vacation.  She’s going hiking and rafting in North India!!

Wow.

So – my mom wanted a card to wish her happy and safe travels.  I immediately thought of the Glamper Greetings stamp set – and went off in a bit of a rabbit hole.  I was determined to use the camper – I finally realized I was trying to force that, and quit.  The card got a lot easier right quick after that!  And I thought the adirondack chair in Seasonal Layers would be cool, too.  And then I saw a fun video from Patty Bennet doing a Glossy Paper “Faux Torn Edge” technique – and I knew what I needed to do.  You can see that video right here – check it – it’s great!  When I put it all together, here’s what I got.  Take a look-see:

My layout was inspired – sort of loosely! – on the challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch.  Turn your computer on its side…you’ll see it! Continue reading
