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! Create with Friends and a Pattern Party!

Happy Happy Hawwwwwmp Day!  I do hope your week is going well!  I’ve been craft room rearranging and trying to tweak my layout a little while I finish the swap to the two new catalogs!

Yesterday, one of my teammates – Jaimie Babarczy – did a cool card for our Blog Hop.  She used the Create With Friends stamp set and made a totally awesome sentiment.  I loved it so much that…I sort of borrowed her idea!  I also used the Pattern Party DSP (sorry – it was just too perfect!) and the Dotty Hearts Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Days to Remember Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Morning, y’all – happy Friday!  We’re headed into another weekend – yeah!

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

So I used a stamp set that looks like it would be complicated and confusing if you just look at it in the catalog.  The Days to Remember set is a genius way to make a calendar for any month of any year!  And I paired it with the super pretty Hand-Penned DSP and the Color & Contour stamp set with the wonderful, bundled Scalloped Contours dies.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch at this week’s Paper Players challenge.

I started with some pretty floral Hand-Penned DSP and matted it on Misty Moonlight for the card front.  Then I matted a strip of a second design on Misty Moonlight and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the days-of-the-week image from Days to Remember in Misty Moonlight.  I added “May” in Mint Macaron.  Then, in Bumble Bee ink, I stamped the days.  It’s hard to explain how to do that – so…check out the video, okay?  I show that particular piece starting at around 4:30 in. 😉

Then I cut the calendar out with the next-to-largest die in the Scalloped Contours set.

I used the little circle image from the stamp set in Misty Moonlight to highlight the day I wanted to…you know…remember! 😉

Then I stamped the larger sentiment in Misty Moonlight and popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the two flower images in Color & Contour – stamping them both in Mint Macaron on Basic White.  Then I cut it with the die in the Scalloped Contours set.

You can see how I’ve used a permanent marker to identify the “top” of the two stamps and the die.  You should be able to add a similar mark to your set – and that’ll make it easy-peasier to line everything up!

I added the flower to the card with some Liquid Glue.

To finish – I used a Glue Dot to adhere a Pale Papaya Loose Flower Flourish to the top of the calender and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Days to Remember sentiment in Misty Moonlight on Basic White.  Then I added the flowers again in Mint Macaron and a single Pale Papaya Genial Gem (coming on 4 May!).

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

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

…and more of the Hand-Penned DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all – I promise that this stamp – which made me totally scratch my head when I looked at it in the catalog – is not nearly as whoo-whoo sci-fi as it looks.  Although it IS pretty darned genius! Days to Remember can help you make mini calendars – cool scrapbook pages – and amazing cards!  And Color & Contour, with the wunnermus Scalloped Contours die set is…one of my favorite new goodies!

I hope you like!

Yesterday was National Peace Rose Day.

Yes.  That’s a thing!

Mine decided to get in on the fun!

Not to be outdone – the lavender is putting on a total show!

Nothing to do with Finn – other than he likes to chase the bumblebees that are enjoying the flowers! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Flowers Memories & More Sneak Peek!

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!  We’re inching closer to the weekend – closer to the end of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog AND closer and closer to the NEW 2021-2022 Annual Catalog going live!  Whoo-hoo!! While that’s exciting – be sure to check the Last Chance section in the Online Store – don’t miss out on your favorite retiring goodies! 🙂

Today is all about the new catalog!  I was finally able to pick up the Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, to go with the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack that I already had.  I added some goodness from the new Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout was loosely inspired by the sketch over at As You See It.

I started with one of the gorgeous – already-decorated-for-you! – Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.  Then I selected a panel from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack.  I cut that down some and matted it on Highland Heather using Liquid Glue.

The Memories & More Card Packs include multiple different “stickers” you can use to decorate your cards and projects.  I selected one of the white ones and stamped the Hand-Penned Petals sentiment in Highland Heather.

I tied a small bow from a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.

I used a few double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment over the top of the bow.

To finish off, I added a Mint Macaron Genial Gem and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the pretty floral from Hand-Penned in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corner of a Basic White panel.  I stamped the large flower once in stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  Then I turned the stamp slightly and stamped it again with full strength Highland Heather.  I stamped the smaller flower once in stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  I added leaves using the stamps in the set, in Mint Macaron.  Then I stuck on another of the Genial Gems, just cuz I could!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

For the front of the Hand-Penned Memories & More Envelope – I stamped the Hand-Penned Petals floral in Tuxedo Black…

…and I didn’t have to do a thing to the pre-decorated envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Well, y’all – I’ll tell you what.  The Hand-Penned Memories & More goodies – be it the Card Pack or the Cards & Envelopes – are simply stunning!  So gorgeous and so perfect to pair with the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.  But they can also be used all by themselves – there are even sentiments on many of the cards in the pack!

I hope you like!  No…I hope you LOVE it as much as I do! 🙂

The man has been spending more time on the sofa with me in the evening.

Not sure if he’s missing Katy – or…just taking advantage of the fact that the sofa is more available to him.

I suppose it could be that he really really loves me…

Or maybe….

…hmmm.  Never mind.

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Sneak Peek Triple Panel Card

‘Sup, y’all??  Happy Tuesday!  I hope your week is going well!  Our weather has been…gorgeous!  Warm enough to have the house open all day and night.  Bright sun – the flowers are blooming and I think the strawberries are trying to do their thing!  We planted on Monday and the patio is really starting to be a pretty spot!  And it smells heavenly! 🙂

My card today features its own flowers and is another sneak peek of the Quiet Meadow stamp set – didn’t even need to use the amazing bundled Meadow Dies!  Get this – and the Pansy Petals DSP – just ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!  Whoo-hoo!! Once you have it in hand – I hope you’ll use it to make today’s card. Take a look-see:

The inspiration for this card came from the FUSION challenge this week!

I started with some pretty Pansy Petals DSP in gingham Pale Papaya that I matted on Pale Papaya for the card front.

Next, I cut a narrow panel of Basic White and placed it in my Stamparatus.  I positioned the sweet wildflower image from Quiet Meadow in the Stamparatus and then used the Marker-to-Stamp technique to color the stamp in Poppy Parade and Evening Evergreen using those Stampin’ Write Markers.

I cut the panel into three equal sized panels and adhered them to a Pale Papaya mat.  Hint:  when doing this technique adhere the two end pieces first.  AND – I made the length of the mat an extra 1/8″ longer than usual.

Using the script image in the Quiet Meadow set – I stamped each panel with it in stamped-off-once Pale Papaya.

I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Quiet Meadow sentiment in Poppy Parade on Basic White and cut it with the most narrow Stitched Rectangle Die.  I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using a Glue Dot, I adhered a Pale Papaya Loose Flower Flourish (coming on 4 May!) to the sentiment – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I once again used my Stamparatus to stamp the Quiet Meadow image using my Poppy Parade and Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Write Markers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pale Papaya mat and into my Evening Evergreen card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got a reprise of the Quiet Meadow floral on the front…

…and a little more of the Pansy Petals DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I mentioned at the start that I didn’t need the full Quiet Meadow bundle for this particular card…

…but I’m really glad I have it in my stash.  Those die cuts are AMAZING!  Check out what I did with them in a previous card right here!  I love this Quiet Meadow stamp set (and matching Meadow Dies) so much – and they’re just perfect to pair with the gorgeous, spring-y Pansy Petals DSP!

I hope you like!
