Stampin’ Up! Strong of Heart Sneak Peek Reverse Easel-Fold with Video Tutorial

Good morning, y’all! I hope your weekend is going well!  We’ve spent it close to home – Wayne is doing dirt work and I got my craft room organizing all… “done”! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook live – I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me.  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay – here’s the link!

This card features a new set – called Strong of Heart – from the new Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog available on 3 Aug.  And the host-exclusive Pattern Party DSP (get this one right now with a workshop or individual order of $180 or more in retail!).  Take a look-see:

The color palette is from the Global Design Project’s color challenge – although my blue is Misty Moonlight. 🤷‍♀️

This is a Reverse – Easel fun fold card – and I got the basics for how to do it from Sam Calcott in the UK at Mixed Up Craft. 🙂

I started with a piece of Basic Black, cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, then I used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool to score at the 2 1/8″ and 4 1/4″ on the long side.

I folded the 2 1/8″ score as a “mountain” fold and the 4 1/4″ score as a “valley”.

I cut a piece of black paper from the Pattern Party DSP, matted it on Coastal Cabana and then adhered it to the large “inside” panel with Liquid Glue.

Next are two smaller panels of Pattern Party DSP – the Misty Moonlight design – matted on Coastal Cabana and adhered to the two smaller front panels with Liquid Glue.

I cut out the largest rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Die set from a piece of Basic White, then stamped it with the large, flower-embellished heart from the Strong of Heart set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  When it was good and dry, I colored the leaves with my Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker and the flowers with my Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Combo.

Using Liquid Glue on just the top half of the back of the die cut, I adhered it to the top panel of the fun-folded card base – thus creating the easel.

I stamped the sentiment in Coastal Cabana on Basic White and cut it with a Tasteful Labels die.  Then I popped it onto the art panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I made an “easel stopper” using a black-and-white flower-strewn piece of the Pattern Party DSP.  First I colored the flowers with my Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Combo.  Then I matted it on Coastal Cabana and popped it onto the large panel with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I flipped the card over and added a sentiment panel.  The Strong of Heart sentiment is stamped in Coastal Cabana on Basic White and flanked by a couple of Polished Pink hearts.  It’s matted on Coastal Cabana and adhered to the back panel of the card base with Liquid Glue.

I added another Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends-colored Pattern Party DSP strip to the adjacent panel of the card base – and the card was done!

 

My Basic White Medium Envelope got a few Polished Pink Strong of Heart hearts on the front…

…and more of the Pattern Party DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! Y’all –  I LOVE the floral heart image in this Strong of Heart stamp set – and the sentiments are amazing!).  And…it’s a SPECIAL stamp set!  It’s the Stampin’ Up! Make A Difference set and for each of them sold they’ll donate $3 to support Heart Health!  So…YOU get a SUPER cool and pretty stamp set AND you’ll be doing good at the same time! 🙂  Seems like a pretty awesome deal!  And – while you’re at it – be sure to pick up the huge-value (and ALSO super pretty!) Pattern Party DSP!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with today and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

I decided to play with the Elegantly Said stamp set for today’s card.  I just got the pretty metallic-foiled Simply Elegant Specialty DSP and made a card with my fave design in the pack!  Take a look-see:

And here’s our hop sketch challenge.

I also played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.  Went across the middle row.  🙂

I started with a piece of Basic Gray cardstock that I embossed in the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I used a Blender Brush to very lightly brush the ridges and swirls of the embossed image with Whisper White Kraft Ink.

I matted the panel on Smoky Slate for the card front.  Using Stampin’ Seal – I adhered a Square Vellum Doily.

I cut my fave design from the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a piece of Copper Foil with a smaller Stitched Rectangle Die – embossed it in the Painted Texture folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the large foliage die in the Forever Flourishing Die set, I cut a piece of Gold Foil – then adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue.

I tied a small simple bow with the Silver twine from the new Simply Elegant Trim pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I placed a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock into my Stamparatus and, using the Marker-to-Stamp technique – colored and stamped just the first part of the Elegantly Said sentiment with my Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I cut it with the Rectangle Stitched Die.

I stamped the Elegantly Said floral image in Smoky Slate over top of the sentiment.  Then I used a couple of Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment onto the card front.

A few silver Metallic Pearls finished it off!

On the inside, I again used my Stamparatus – this time coloring the SECOND half of the sentiment with my Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker and stamped it on a Very Vanilla panel.  I added the floral in Smoky Slate and a single silver Metallic Pearl.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Smoky Slate mat and into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Elegantly Said floral on the front in Smoky Slate…

…and more of the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This truly IS Simply Elegant paper, is it not?  And the gorgeous images and sentiments in the Elegantly Said bundle complement it perfectly!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Earth Beauty of Friendship Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Happy half-way-thru-the-weekend!  Hope it’s going well.  Our planting plans were thwarted by rain most of the day on Saturday.  And I suspect we’ll be thwarted by eveything-is-soaking-wet-and-muddy today.  So…another inside-work day for us, I’m guessing.  Bleh. 😉

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook live, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me.  If not, but you’d like to check it out, here’s the replay on YouTube! 🙂

 

This card features a sneak peek at the new Beauty of Friendship stamp set with its bundled Beautiful Trees dies – with the Beauty of the Earth DSP taking center stage!  You’ll be able to get all of it starting on 4 May when the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog goes live.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches this week!

I started with some of the Beauty of the Earth DSP that I cut for a card front – then I cut a smooth-side circle from the middle using a Layering Circles Die.

I matted the DSP panel on Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider mats using Liquid Glue.

I matted the DSP circle on scallop-edge die cuts – in Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider – from the Layering Circles dies.  Then I added it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The Beautiful Trees dies has two rectangular dies for sentiments.  I used the smaller one to cut a wood-grain piece of DSP from the Beauty of the Earth DSP.

I stamped the Beauty of Friendship sentiment in Cajun Craze on a piece of Basic White and cut it with the second rectangle die in the Beautiful Trees dies – then adhered it to the wood rectangle with Liquid Glue.

Now – my trim uses Crumb Cake and White Baker’s Twine from the brand new Baker’s Twine Combo Pack (it has FIVE rolls of twine!!).  I cut about 16″ of each – two in Crumb Cake and one in White.

I tied them together in a knot and then braided it.  When I got done – I used Glue Dots to adhere the “rope” in a figure-8 loop to the card front.

I added a few double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals right by the loops and used them to adhere my sentiment to the card front – and that was it!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Beauty of Friendship sentiment in Cajun Craze to a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the tree trunk image in Early Espresso, added the smaller tree top in Cinnamon Cider (this is SUCH a cool image!).  Then I used the little splotches image to stamp all over in Cajun Craze and Misty Moonlight.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider mat and then into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Beauty of Friendship tree on the front…

…and more of the wood-grain Beauty of the Earth DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Beauty of the Earth suite is so gorgeous  – with the watercolor-inspired images in the DSP and the wonderful sentiments and trees in the Beauty of Friendship stamp set.  And – I haven’t even really gotten busy with the Beautiful Trees dies!

 

I hope you like!  And – if you love this set…check out my Special Bundle #2: It’s a Beautiful World Bundle.

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with today and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw this sketch – I remembered the cool wildflower dies in the new Meadow Die Set – which is coming to you on 4 May, bundled with the lovely new Quiet Meadow stamp set – and knew it would be perfect for this sketch.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

I used the colors from The Paper Player challenge, too.

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock that I embossed in the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder and adhered to a Merry Merlot mat with Liquid Glue to create the card front.

Next, I used the largest of the circle Stitched Shapes Dies to cut a Crumb Cake circle.  Y’all – this amazing die set is retiring – so…get it NOW if you don’t have it already! 🙂

I stamped the Quiet Meadow wildflower image onto the Stitched Shape circle.  Over it – I stamped the cool script image twice in Crumb Cake.  Then I adhered the circle to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using one of the…many!…dies in the Meadow die set…

…I cut one from Vellum cardstock and one from Crumb Cake cardstock.  I embossed the Crumb Cake die cut in the Old World 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I adhered both flowers to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I tied a Linen Thread double-loop bow and added it with a Glue Dot.

The sentiment, from Quiet Meadow, is stamped in Merry Merlot on Very Vanilla and cut with the label die in the Meadow set.  I used the same die to cut a Misty Moonlight piece from the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP.  I adhered the two labels together with Liquid Glue, then popped them onto the card front with double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Glue Dots to adhere three of the new Bee Trinkets (these are coming soon in the new catalog!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the Quiet Meadow wildflower and script images in Crumb Cake to a Crumb Cake panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Merry Merlot mat and into my Misty Moonlight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Quiet Meadow images on the front in Crumb Cake…

…and more of the Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all!!  This Quiet Meadow set – with it’s wunnermus bundled Meadow Dies – is going to be HUGE!!  I mean – the die set creates so many textural florals – it’s crazy!!  Match it with the sentiments and images in Quiet Meadow and…you’ve got a sure-fire winner!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Sneak Peek

Happy Happy HAWWWMP DAY!!  Wheeeeee…..cresting the middle of the week and sliding down the backside to the weekend!  This Saturday I get to do my virtual OnTour Event with Stampin’ Up!  This is a Zoom event – in lieu of in person, cuz…you know!  I’ve heard good things from the folks who’ve already had their event – so….I’m looking forward to it! 🙂 Hope you’ve got something that you’re looking forward to, too! 🙂

I’ve got a Sneak Peek for you today of a cool new bundle from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog – that you’ll be able to pick up on 4 May!  The stamp set, called Color & Contour, will be bundled with a cool set called Scalloped Contours.  I used both of them and added some Flowers For Every Season DSP  (available right now in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog – but retiring SOON!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the sketch at the Inspired By challenge.

…and by the inspiration photo from the As You See It Challenge.  This one was also a speed challenge – and this card took me 9:40 to complete (you know – once I’d figured out what I was going to do)! 🙂

I cut a Just Jade piece of paper from the Flowers For Every Season DSP  using the largest Scalloped Contour Die and then I adhered it with Liquid Glue to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the flower image from Color & Contour in Just Jade – then I cut it with the largest Stitched Shapes circle die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Color & Contour detailed outline flower three times on Basic White – twice in Bumble Bee and once in Magenta Madness.  I used the fill stamp (this is a two-step set) with the same colors.  I cut the three flowers with the die in the Scalloped Contours set.

I adhered the Magenta Madness and one of the Bumble Bee flowers with Liquid Glue and popped the third flower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Color & Contour, is stamped in Misty Moonlight on Basic White, and cut it with the smallest rectangle in the Scalloped Contour die set.  I popped it onto the card front with Dimensionals.

I added Cinnamon Cider or Bumble Bee dots from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots to the middle of the flowers – added a Just Jade dot to the sentiment and the card front was done!

Serious?!  How fun is this set?? I LOVE those scalloped rectangles – and they’re perfectly sized for A2 cards!

On the inside, I stamped the Bumble Bee Color & Contour flowers in the corner of a Basic White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Just Jade mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Color & Contour flowers on the front…

..and more of the Flowers For Every Season DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This quick card was easy to make with this new Color & Contour bundle  – and I KNOW you’re going to want it for yourself, just as soon as you can get it – which is 4 May.  Unless, of course, you decided to join the SU! team right now – THEN you could get it – and any of our other pre-order goodies! – right now in your Starter Kit (a huge value in and of itself) and with your cool new 20% discount! 😉

I hope you like!

You’ll get deep discounts on your favorite products from the 2020–2021 Annual Catalog—and as an extra bonus—you’ll get a peek at the list of items carrying over to the other catalogs.  Many items will sell out fast, so don’t delay—head over to my Online Store and get started right now!

Remember, even if a BUNDLE carries over to the next catalog, it most likely will NOT be at the 10%-off bundle price, so get them while you can at their discounted price!!

While you’re at it, be sure to take a really hard look at your stash of 2019-2021 In Color goodies, too – those are going fast with many items already GONE! 🙁

Happy shopping, y’all!  And don’t forget – it’s all WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!!

Finn Fan Fix 

Wayne and I worked outside on Sunday and much of Monday – planting and tidying up the patio off the barn.

At the end of the day on Monday, after we fed, it was so nice outside that we sat out on the patio for a bit.

With Finn, of course – he LOVES that time of night outside!

Wayne – kicking back.

Oh wait – had to adjust the ball cap – sorry!

NOW he looks cool!

Finn don’t need no stinkin’ ball cap to look cool….

Pretty darned nice way to end the day, I have to say! 🙂
