Stampin’ Up! Berry Delightful Blessings Corner-Fold Card with Video Tutorial!

Good morning and happy Friday!  Hoping that your week went well – even with all the….well.  You know.  I don’t know about y’all but I am so over all of this…you know. 🥺

So – let’s talk about something FUN!  Like…FREE Designer Series Paper with a bundled FREE stamp set!  Did I say Free??  Yep – with a $100 purchase before shipping & tax, you might pick the goodies in today’s card.

If you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, here’s the replay!

I saw this cute Corner-Fold card design on the talented Rachel Tessman’s blog and decided to give it a go.  I even used the same Berry Blessings stamp set and bundled Berry Delightful DSP – cuz I love it.  A LOT!  Take a look-see:

I played along with the Anything Goes challenge over at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

I started with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Pacific Point cardstock, that I scored and folded at 4 1/4″ (just like a regular side-fold card).

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere a piece of Granny Apple Green plaid Berry Delightful DSP to the card front.

Then, using my Paper Trimmer, I cut twice to create the twisting corner element.  You can see how to do it in the video (where I show you how to use Rachel’s Post-It Note trick!) – and here’s a cut-template.

Once the cuts were done, I turned the corner – bringing the top right-hand corner in towards the middle of the card – and using my Bone Folder to burnish the fold.  It’s a lot easier to see in the video. 😉

With a little more Stampin’ Seal, I adhered the turned-down corner to the card front.

I matted another piece of the Berry Delightful DSP on Shaded Spruce and adhered it to the square.

Using the same DSP as on the square – I matted a strip on Shaded Spruce and adhered it across the bottom portion of the card with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White (or Basic White will for sure work!), I stamped the Berry Blessings sentiment in Shaded Spruce and cut it with a Tasteful Labels die.  Then I popped it onto the DSP strip with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I colored a new Opal Round with my Dark Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blend, added it to the card front and the card front was done.

I stamped the blueberry outline image from Berry Blessings in Pacific Point on a piece of Whisper White then added the fill image in stamped-off-once Pacific Point.  I added the leaves outline in Shaded Spruce and then the leaves fill with Granny Apple Green.  I cut it with the large circle die in Tasteful Labels and popped it onto the inside of the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside, I added the blueberries and leaves in the corner of a Whisper White panel.

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

My Whisper White (or Basic White) Medium Envelope got the Berry Blessings blueberries and leaves on the front…

…and more of the Berry Delightful DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously – is it any wonder that I love this fun fold?  Look at how much of the gorgeous Berry Delightful DSP you get to show off!  And it is SO worth showing off, isn’t it??

With the added bonus of getting it – plus the bundled Berry Blessings stamp set! – for FREE – it’s a deal you’re going to want to get in on!  Just place an order of $100 or more (before shipping & tax) – and this wonderful bundle could be your Sale-A-Bration Pick!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Dandy Garden Wishes Sneak Peak 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 –  Claire’s got a cool color challenge for us all … I hope you’ll come and play along with us!  While the challenge seems like a great New Year’s card – I came up with something a little different!  What will you make??  🙂

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!

For this one, I pulled out the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and the Dragonflies Punch!  These items will be available on 5 Jan 2021 in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.  And – for the BIG impact – I used a piece of the Dandy Laser-Cut Paper – which is also part of the Dandy Garden Suite!  Take a look-see:

Here’s the Paper Players color challenge just in case you weren’t able to figure it out! 😉

My layout is loosely based on the Global Design Project sketch this week.

I started with a piece of Basic Black that I matted on Silver Foil for the card front.

Next, I selected a panel of the new Dandy Laser-Cut Paper and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to a piece of Basic Black card stock the same size.  Then I matted that on Silver Foil and popped it onto the card front with the Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another piece of Basic Black cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from Dragonfly Garden in Versamark Ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.

Tip:  when you heat emboss, the powder turns into a liquid-y form until it cools off.  Be careful to not stick your fingers in it.  Trust me.  It won’t run or anything, but it WILL smear/come off.  Once it’s good and cool, you’re good to go! 😉

So – when it was cool, I cut it with a die from the Tasteful Labels die set.

I cut two lengths of Black 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and adhered them to the card front with Glue Dots.

Then I popped the sentiment over top with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I punched a bevy of bitty dragonflies from Silver Foil using the Dragonflies Punch.   Two of them I adhered to the sentiment with Liquid Glue and the other three I popped on with mini Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And – that was it for the card front!

I DID toy with adding some Rhinestones, but….held myself back!

On the inside, I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the little dragonflies and a second sentiment from Dragonfly Garden on a Whisper White panel.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Silver Foil mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Tuxedo Black Dragonfly Garden dragonflies on the front…

…and a large dragonfly on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Dandy Garden Suite – with the Dragonfly Garden and the Dragonflies Punch as an integral part! – is absolutely one of my favorite new goodies in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog!

 

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

I hope you like!

Now…take a look at what the rest of the team has to offer!  Then pull out your ink and papers and have a little fun! 🙂

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK IS RETIRING!

SHIMMERY WHITE 8-1/2" X 11" CARDSTOCK

Stampin’ Up! posted this update late in the day on Thursday. 

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes.  Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected.  Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.

We also have a video message addressing some potential concerns that you may have. This video goes over a comparison of Whisper White to Basic White so you will know what to expect with this change. You can watch the video here.

It’s always hard to say goodbye, but we are excited about the new Basic White product line and we encourage you to try it out! We are confident that you’ll love it just as much as we do.

I’ve got an Online Host Club starting on 1 January (just in time for the new catalog and Sale-A-Bration!) and I’ve got openings.  Whoo-hoo!!!

What is an Online Host Club?  Glad you asked!An Online Host Club lets you get some of the benefits of being a host – without doing any of the WORK of being a host!  And – it helps you build your crafting tool chest a little at a time.  While earning FREE goodies!

A club consists of three folks doing two consecutive three-month terms.   Each person commits to buying $50 before shipping and tax each month.

Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example!  As you can see, each member gets to host TWICE during the six months!!

At the end of the club, I let each member select a stamp set up to $25 that I send to them for free.

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!
  • Which means you’ll have at least $15.00 of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host months.  Stampin’ Rewards are Stampin’ Up!-speak for “free money”!
  • You’ll earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS on your Host Club Orders.  Each $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 24 reward points during your membership, meaning you’ll automatically earn at least ONE $40 Peppermint rewards gift!  (Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select a free reward gift valued up to $40!).  You can get more info about my Punkin’ Heads Customer Rewards Program right here.
  • During Sale-a-Bration – each of your host club orders will earn you AT LEAST one Level 1 ($50 level) Sale-A-Bration reward!
  • You’ll receive a FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects and access to all previous tutorials for the duration of the club. Right now, there are over FIFTY tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around TWO HUNDRED FIFTY not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)
  • Access to my Weekly Zoom The Craftroom online Zoom Party – where you can come craft and chat with me and other customers! YEP – THIS IS NEW!!
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your TWO Host Months
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each “term”, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the full 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term!

When you join the club – you’ll commit to the full six months – in two consecutive three-month increments.   The launch of a new catalog and Sale-A-Bration is ALWAYS a great time to join a club!

Don’t delay – there are limited spaces available!

If you want to join us or if you have ANY questions about how it would work…please drop me a note at stamps-n-lingers@comcast.net!

Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Bundle Sneak Peek!

Good morning.  Happy first day of the week in Standard Daylight Time.

Let’s be clear.  I HATE Standard Time.

Hate.  It.

I got up at just after 5 yesterday.  Finn was still asleep – Katy was moving and griping at me.

Headed to the kitchen to make my coffee and realized…yes.  The clock by my bed is NOT one of those that changes automatically.  Which meant…yep.  It was a little after 4.

Grrrrrr.

At that point, I was truly up (not awake – but up) so…I just went on with it.  But – then Standard time struck again at feeding time.  Which we did in the DARK!

Hate.  It.

There.  Got that off my chest.

Now.  Let’s talk cards!  I’ve got a fun little sneak peek at the new Quite Curvy bundle – which you can get TOMORROW!!  Whoo-hoo!  Take a look-see:
