Stampin’ Up! Magical Mermaid Tranquil Textures Fun Fold Card

Good morning, y’all!  And – even though it’s Monday, it’s REALLY still the weekend – so….it really is a HAPPY MONDAY!

If you were able to join me last night on my Facebook Live video, I sure appreciate you spending part of your holiday weekend with me.  If not – but would like to see how to make this fun-fold card – here’s the video for you on YouTube!

Fair warning – my directions in this blog post aren’t going to be terribly detailed – it’s a heckuva lot easier to show this kind of card than to tell you how to do it!

Which makes you think it’s hard.

But it isn’t.

Just doesn’t lend itself too efficiently to the written directions format! 🙂

So – this is a bridge card that I made with the Magical Mermaid stamp set (carrying over) and the goodies in the new Tranquil Textures Suite – specifically the Sea of Textures stamp set and bundled Under the Sea Framelits, plus the gorgeous Tranquil Textures DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Artistically Asian There for Me

Happy three-day weekend, my peeps!  Hope you’ve got some fun plans – and that you won’t get washed out.  It’s looking like we’re going to get the “wet” version of Sprummer here in the south!

I was so tickled when I discovered that the Artistically Asian stamp set was carrying over!  It’s got such pretty flower and foliage images, plus wonderful sentiments.  I used some of the new Brights colors and a Stitched Labels Frameltis die to make a clean-and-simple card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature Easel Fun Fold

It’s Monday.

That’s pretty much all I have to say about that, okay?  I really think those two words (three if you count the contraction) say it all, don’t you?

If you were able to join us for my Facebook Live video last night, thanks so much for spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see how to make this easy fun-fold card with the new Rooted in Nature stamp set and bundled Nature’s Roots Framelits, then you can check out the Memorex (google that if you’re too young to know what Memorex means….) version right here:

This new set, which you’re going to be able to get for yourself in like…LESS THAN TWO WEEKS!!…is so pretty and cool!  And – when you add it to some Wood Textures DSP – take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Very Vintage Waterfront!

Happy happy HAWWWMP day!!  Hope your week is going good – and that you’re ready to slide on down to the weekend!  I know I am!

On yesterday’s blog hop, my friend Sue Prather made a gorgeous card that I fell in love with as soon as it loaded on my computer!  You can check it out right here.

I decided I was going to CASE it – cuz I needed a card just like it!  So I got started – and then…well, sort of deviated.  I ended up using the Waterfront stamp set and Wood Textures DSP – just like Sue – but I added some sentiments from the new Host-Exclusive Very Vintage stamp set.  And made it more feminine – it’s going to an 80 year old woman who lives in Colorado!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Floral Statements on Sheet Music for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! It’s sketch week and we’ve got the full complement of hoppers today!  Do be sure to check out all their projects when you’re done here, won’t you?  

A friend and team-member sent me a lovely card the other day – on which she’d used the Floral Statements stamp set and a Sheet Music stamp.  And that gave me the idea for this card today.  Take a look-see:

Our sketch for today…

And I got my color scheme from the Global Design Project color challenge.

I started with a Soft Suede card base and embossed the front in the new Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF (which is still available as a free SAB goodie, bundled with the Blossoming Basket stamp set, with a $100 purchase).  Using an almost-dry Sponge Dauber with Soft Suede ink, I rubbed it on the three sides of the card front and quickly sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.  

For the art, I stamped the Sheet Music image in Soft Suede on a Very Vanilla panel.  Then, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, I stamped the Floral Statements image in Versamark and heat embossed it in Copper.  While I was at it, I did the same again on a Vellum card stock sheet.

I stamped the Burlap image in Soft Suede on a Pear Pizzazz panel, tore the edges and then rubbed them with my Soft Suede Sponge Dauber – then I adhered it on an angle with Liquid Glue.  I tore and sponged the art panel in the same way.

With some Liquid Glue, I adhered a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon over the Pear Pizzazz panel.  

I colored the flowers with my Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers and then popped the art panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  With a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die, I cut a circle from the Vellum panel.  Then I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals – just under the embossed portions – to pop the circle onto the art panel.

I made a Linen Thread Double-Loop Billie Moan Bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Finally, I nestled a Pear Pizzazz heart Enamel Shape under the bow and the card front was done!

On the inside, I took a Very Vanilla panel and embossed across the bottom with the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF.  Then I lightly sponged it with Soft Suede.  I matted the panel on Pear Pizzazz, then wrapped some Linen Thread twice around the panel and tied a little bow.

I added a Pear Pizzaz heart, Fast Fuse’d the panel into the card base and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a few enamel hearts on the front…

…and then I embossed the envelope flap in the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF.

Et Voila! Thank you, Carole, for the great idea!  I think the two images in the Floral Statements set are so pretty and, of course, Sheet Music.  Hello?  It’s.  Sheet.  Music!  Hope you like!
