Sympathy

Stampin’ Up! Peonies and Dandelions for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a sketch challenge – 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 circled back to an early 2020-2021 Annual Catalog favorite – the Prized Peony Bundle and coordinating Peony Garden DSP for today’s card.  To that, I added the subtle wonderfulness of the Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder.  I decided that it would be perfect as a sympathy card – and, since it’s always good to have one of those in hand…that’s what I made! Take a look-see:

And…here’s our sketch!

The theme of the card fits perfectly over at the Watercooler Wednesday challenge this week!

I started with some quiet, Gray Granite paper from the Peony Garden DSP that I matted on Petal Pink for the card front.

Next, I took a piece of Petal Pink card stock and cut three sides of it with the long edgelit die in the Peony Die set.  Then I embossed the panel in the Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder.  I VERY lightly Sponge Daubered some Petal Pink on the flowers and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped my sentiment – from Prized Peony – in Gray Granite on Whisper White and cut it with a label die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To create the peony flower – I cut the four pieces needed using the Peony Dies – from Vellum card stock.  I colored each piece with my Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend Marker.  I also used a Sponge Dauber to color the bottom of each piece with Petal Pink ink (for depth).  I curled the four pieces with my Bone Folder and then assembled the flower – using a Glue Dot near the bottom between each layer.

If you want to see how to create these gorgeous flowers, I’ve done a video on how to assemble them – you can check it out right here!

I created a flower center by cutting the appropriate die from Vellum and coloring it with my Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend.  I stuck it into the middle of the flower with a tiny dab of Liquid Glue.

For the leaves – I cut all of the leaf dies from Vellum.  Then, the solid leaves I embossed in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I colored the solid leaves with my Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blend and the smaller (detail pieces) with the Dark Mossy Meadow Blend.  I adhered the pieces together with little dabs of Liquid Glue and curled them with the Bone Folder.

I adhered the leaves to the card front – then added the flower over top with a few Glue Dots.

I adhered a small Gray Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon bow with a Glue Dot, popped on a few Champagne Rhinestone Jewels – and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Prized Peony in Gray Granite on a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom, I stamped the small flower image in Gray Granite and then used my Light Petal Pink Blend to color JUST the shading marks on the flowers.  A single Champagne Rhinestone finished it up.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Gray Granite card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Gray Granite and Petal Pink Prized Peony flowers across the bottom…

…and a little more of the Peony Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow – what an amazing and awesome and wunnermus creation this Prized Peony Bundle is, don’t you think?!?  I mean…how clever to come up with a way to create a peony with just four small pieces of card stock.  Stampin’ Up! artists!  Am I right?!?

And the subtle elegance of the Peony Garden DSP is undeniable!

I hope you like – and have added this one to your stash of goodies!

Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets in Grace’s Garden

Well.  Here we are. Friday!  And – for some of you – today’s a holiday!  Cuz tomorrow we celebrate the birth of our nation!  I hope everyone has some plans – we’re going to TRY to go to our friend’s on Sunday for some social-distanced socializing!  Fingers crossed we get our taxes done by Sunday so we can make that happen!  I feel the need for a hamburger on the grill with friends!  And deviled eggs!  Yum!  And I’ve been collecting some dessert recipes that I’m itching to make when I have more-than-one-mouth to feed!

Speaking of taxes (look back a few sentences – I DID mention taxes!) – I am SO sorry that I wasn’t able to get together with y’all yesterday!  But – the COVID-push-back is almost over and…yep.  The taxman cometh!  So…gots to do what we gots to do!

My friend Jan – also one of the newest members of my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew team! – came over on Wednesday and we made the card that I was going to make for you yesterday.  In fact, she was going to come over and sit in!  Maybe next week!

The card is a pet-sympathy card – using the Grace’s Garden stamp set and coordinating Garden Gateway Dies, plus the Pampered Pets bundle and a perfect sentiment from Peaceful Moments.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony for the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day!!  And welcome to another edition of the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop.  All our blogs go live at the exact same time – regardless of where in the WORLD the hopper is located!   I hope you’ll sit down and spend a little time with us – regardless of where YOU are in the world! 🙂  I know you’re going to see some awesome projects!

This month’s focus is on the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!  Favorite things – inspiration – whatever makes us get all warm and fuzzy when we think about it.  I am ALWAYS drawn to the flowers.  Stampin’ Up! does flowers real good – and this catalog is no exception!  One of my favorites is…the stunning Peony Garden Suite!!  I used the Prized Peony bundle and a little bit of Peony Garden DSP.  Plus…the returning Woven Heirlooms stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the current Mojo Monday challenge!

I started with a piece of Gray Granite card stock and embossed it in the new Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I cut it down to size and adhered it to the front of my Gray Granite card base with Liquid Glue.

I used one of the white/Gray Granite designs in the Peony Garden DSP and colored it with my Light Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blend and my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Combo pack.  Then I matted it on Petal Pink and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The cross-panel is another, Petal Pink-matted piece of the Peony Garden DSP, adhered with more Liquid Glue.

 

Then I adhered a new Square Vellum Doily with Liquid Glue.  Over the top of that, using a Glue Dot, I wound some of the gold twine from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.

To make the flower – I used the four dies in the Peony Die set and cut one of each from another piece of Peony Garden DSP.

The flower goes together in layers – starting with the smallest of the pieces – and adhering them together with Liquid Glue.  Slide piece 1 into piece 2 – adhere. Slide that into piece 3….and on until all the layers are adhered together.

Tip:  See the arrows pointing the notches in the die cuts?  Line up all the notches as you put it together and it’ll all work out!

Once the parts were all together – I curled the bottom petals with my Bone Folder and used my fingers to “plump” up the rest of them.  Then I stuck Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals here and there amongst the petals.  Tip:  I didn’t take the top cover off the dimensionals – I just wanted the petals supported, not stuck down. 😉

I used a sponge dauber to lightly shade the edges of the petals with Petal Pink ink.  Then I stuck two flower centers cut from So Saffron into the middle of the petals.

I cut several of the leaves die cuts in Soft Sea Foam card stock and Soft Sea Foam paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

Then I built the collage using Liquid Glue to adhere all the pieces and parts.

I tied a bow from Gray  Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

The sentiment, from Woven Heirlooms, is stamped in Gray Granite on Whisper White and fussy cut.  Then I adhered it with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A few new Elegant Faceted Gems finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Woven Heirlooms sentiment in Gray Granite on a Whisper White panel.  I added two peony images from Prized Peony in Gray Granite and colored them with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Combo and Light So Saffron Blend.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into the Gray Granite card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another peony on the front…

…and more of the Peony Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t that Peony stunning!?  I promise it’s not as hard as the written explanation makes it sound.  Promise.  We’ll do one soon on a video and you’ll see!  So…go ahead and get this bundle RIGHT NOW – and you’ll be all ready!

The Prized Peony stamp set has great sentiments – I just wanted slightly different ones for this card – and the Woven Heirlooms is one of my favorites!

And the gorgeous Peony Garden DSP – in Petal Pink, Basic Gray, Gray Granite and White – is elegantly beautiful!

I hope you like and are adding this Suite to your Must-Have list!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poppy Moments Sympathy Card

Happy Happy Hawwmp day, y’all!  We’re here in the south with just a “little rain” this week – LOL.  Which is to say – we’re soaking here.  I actually put a rain jacket on this morning to go out to the barn.  Yes – it’s been THAT wet today.  Bleh!

I took a meander thru my card stash this week and realized that I don’t have any sympathy cards.  We don’t like it, but…we all know that the need for a sympathy card is always looming, right?  I decided that I’d best get busy.  Which is exactly what I did today, using the Peaceful Moments stamp set and just a splash of color from a little Peaceful Poppies DSP.  Take a look-see:

I love this layout and it came from the Mojo Monday sketch challenge!  I’m so glad this challenge was re-invigorated by Julee Tilman!  🙂

I started by cutting the second-to-largest rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Die Set from a Whisper White panel.  I used the same die to cut a Basic Black rectangle.  Then I put the black rectangle in the hole in the white panel – and ran the whole thing thru my die cutting machine in the Stone 3D Embossing Folder (which…comes with the Power Of Hope stamp set as a $100 reward from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration First Release!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Whisper White Panel to a Basic Black met – then adhered the black die cut into the negative space.

I cut the same size rectangle from a piece of the Peaceful Poppies DSP and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I pulled out my Peaceful Poppies Elements and, on a black circle die cut, stamped the sentiment from Peaceful Poppies in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.

I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere another die cut from Peaceful Poppies Elements – the scalloped-edge strip – across the card front.  Then I popped the circle sentiment on with Dimensionals as well.  And…the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second sentiment in Tuxedo Black to a Whisper White panel.  On the bottom, I adhered another Peaceful Poppy Element die cut with Liquid Glue.  I also used Liquid Glue to adhere a single Peaceful Poppy Sequin by the sentiment.  With my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Marker – I carefully filled in the little hole in the middle of the adhered sequin! 😉

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Peaceful Poppy Element die cut on the front…

…and a little more Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I do so love this gorgeous Peaceful Poppies DSP, don’t you?  The colors are simply stunning and they can do ALL the work for you!  Add in the sentiments with their beautiful fonts from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and…boom!!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Positive Thoughts Sympathy

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!  Hope your week is going well.  All is good here – we’re soggy but…it’s okay.  It’s warm for a minute, so…there’s that! 🙂

I have a card today that is going to end up being sent as a sympathy card, I believe.  It doesn’t overtly refer to “sympathy” but… I think it’s actually appropriate.  It uses one of my favorite sets in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog – the Positive Thoughts stamp set.  I took advantage of the new Nature’s Thoughts Dies, too, that cut all those wonderful shapes out for me using my die cutting machine!  You’ll also see some of the new So Very Vellum Specialty DSP (a new freebie in the Sale-A-Bration Second Release flyer).  Take a look-see:

I started this one with a card-front size piece of Whisper White and an identically sized piece of Soft Sea Foam vellum from the new So Very Vellum Speicalty DSP (coming to you on 3 Mar in the SAB second release).  I used Glue Dots to adhere the vellum to the card stock – placing them where I knew they’d be hidden by decorations on the card front.  Then I matted the whole thing on So Saffron to make the card front.

I used the large stitched-edge rectangle die in the Nature’s Thoughts Die Set to cut a Whisper White panel, which I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped two Positive Thoughts leaves images – one in So Saffron and the second in Soft Sea Foam.  I also stamped a flower in Petal Pink.  All three are cut with their matching dies in Nature’s Thoughts.

I adhered the leaves and flower to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next up, I cut some little leaves (also in the Nature’s Thoughts die set) from the same Soft Sea Foam So Very Vellum paper, and adhered them as well.

The sentiment, from Positive Thoughts, is stamped in Soft Suede on a strip of Soft Sea Foam card stock that I bannerized with my Paper Snips.  Then I adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut three little Nature’s Thoughts butterflies from So Saffron and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Lily Pad Impressions and Tulips Sympathy Card

Well – it’s here again!  Monday!  Yeah?

Do you realize January is almost over?!?  Yikes!

My card today celebrates Sale-A-Bration (which is only around thru the end of March, remember).  I used the Lovely Lily stamp set ($50 level reward) and the Lily Pad Dies ($100 level reward), plus the simply gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP ($50 level reward).  And…I borrowed a couple of sentiments from Itty Bitty Greetings (2019-2020 AC) and Timeless Tulips (2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog).  Take a look-see:

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

And I thought the TGIF inspiration challenge was fun this week, too! 🙂

I started by embossing a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock – it’s the same size as the front of the card – in the new Stone 3D Embossing Folder (get this one bundled with the Power of Hope stamp set with a $100 order during Sale-A-Bration).  Then I adhered it with Liquid Glue to the front of my Pretty Peacock card base.

To make the angled panel, I first laid a piece of the Lily Impressions DSP across the card base.  Then I flipped it over and traced the back of the DSP so I’d know where to cut.

With the pencil line clearly visible, I cut the panel in my Paper Trimmer.

Then I adhered the panel to a piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock – lining up the two straight sides to create my “normal” mat edge.

I used my Paper Trimmer to cut off the excess card stock – eyeballing the mat size.

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

For the flowers, I used Melon Mambo ink to stamp the large flower in the Lovely Lily stamp set on a piece of Whisper White card stock and one on a piece of Flirty Flamingo.  I “pulled” the ink out into the petals of both flowers using a Blender Pen.  Then I cut them both out with the die in the Lily Pad Dies set.

I also used the detailed flower die to cut a Melon Mambo flower.

The sentiment, from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, is stamped in Melon Mambo on Flirty Flamingo and cut with the lily pad die.

I layered the flowers and the sentiment using Liquid Glue.  The sentiment is tucked into the flowers – hiding the little “dent” that makes it a lily pad.  So…it’s just an oval!

I wound a piece of So Saffron twine from the Metallics Baker’s Twine and Sequins combo pack ($50 level reward) around my fingers five times, then tied another piece around it to create a “bow”.  Which I adhered to the card front with a Glue Dot.

Then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the flowers/sentiment over the top of the bow.

I added some Melon Mambo gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Timeless Tulips in Melon Mambo to a Whisper White panel.  In the bottom corner, I stamped the big flower and used my Blender Pen to pull ink into the petals.  Then I added a few Old Olive gems from Noble Peacock.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat and into the Pretty Peacock card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Lovely Lily flower in Melon Mambo on the front…

…and a little more of the gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Lovely Lily stamp set and coordinating Lily Pad Dies are the perfect complement to the gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP.

That paper is SO pretty – you can SEE the brush strokes in the oil “paint”!  Stunning!  I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below.  With a $200 order – you could get the Lovely Lily stamp set, the Lily Pad Dies and the Lily Impressions DSP for free!

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Positive Thoughts

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you’re headed into a good and relatively stress-free week!!

Before we get going – I’ve got THREE extra Single Paper Shares ready to go if anyone wants them.  $15 +$5 for first class shipping gets you 48 – 6″ x 6″ sheets of beautiful new Designer Series Papers – and 6 Best Dressed 3″ x 3″ Note Cards and Envelopes.  Let me know ASAP if you want one or more of these packs of gorgeous paper! 🙂

I’ve got a very feminine card for you today – using the new Positive Thoughts stamp set. It also uses two wonderful Coordination Products that will be available to you on 4 Feb – the Nature’s Thoughts dies and the Pleased As Punch DSP.  Take a look-see!

The soft color palette is from this week’s CAS Colors & Sketches challenge.

And I think it’s pretty feminine so… I’ll enter it in the Water Cooler Wednesday challenge!

I started with a piece of Petal Pink gingham paper from the new Pleased As Punch DSP and matted it on So Saffron for the card front.

Next, using the large rectangle die in the Nature’s Thoughts Dies, I cut out a piece of Whisper White.

On that panel, I stamped the large leaf image from Positive Thoughts several times without re-inking in Bermuda Bay.  Then I added the fluer-d-doo image in So Saffron – again stamping several times without re-inking.

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

Next up was to stamp and cut all the elements for the collage.  I stamped the big leaf image in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White and cut it with the die in Nature’s Thoughts.  I stamped two Petal Pink flowers and three Daffodil Delight butterflies and cut them out as well.  Then I cut two feathers – one in Whisper White and one in Petal Pink Perennial Essence Vellum Card Stock.  Finally, a few Bermuda Bay leaf die cuts joined the pile!

The sentiment – from Positive Thoughts – is stamped in Bermuda Bay on the Perennial Essence Vellum and cut with an Ornate Frames Die (carried over from the Holiday Catalog).

With everything cut and ready, I built the collage – adding and moving pieces around until it looked right.

Then I took it’s picture!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere all the pieces – starting with the large Bermuda Bay leaf and building the layers.  When I got to the sentiment – I used Glue Dots (they’re pretty easy to “hide” when using Vellum!).  Finally – the last flower is popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Liquid Glue to tuck the Bermuda Bay die cut leaves in here and there into the collage and then added a bow tied with Petal Pink 5/8″ Striped Organdy Ribbon with a Glue Dot.

A few Champagne Rhinestone Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added the large Positive Thoughts leaf in Bermuda Bay on a Whisper White panel, stamping it a few times without re-inking.  I also added a second sentiment in Bermuda Bay.  Over the sentiment, in stamped-off-once Petal Pink, I stamped the feather image from the stamp set.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and into my Bermuda Bay card base, added the card front with Liquid Glue and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Bermuda Bay leaves on the front…

Stampin’ Up! Let It Ride Flourishing Phrases

Happy happy HAWWWMP DAY!!!  Whoo-hoo!

I’ve got a clean and pretty-simple card today – it’s a sympathy card with the Let It Ride and Flourishing Phrases stamp sets from the Annual Catalog.  And – I managed to find another reason to use the Stitched So Sweetly Dies from the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini.  I LOVE that die set!  Take a look-see:

I started with a Very Vanilla panel that I embossed in the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Mossy Meadow for the card front.

The art is from the Let It Ride stamp set – I stamped the horse in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla.  I colored him with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush – picking up the ink from the lid of the Crumb Cake ink pad.

I added a little green at the bottom with my Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blend.

I matted the panel on Mossy Meadow and adhered the whole thing to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment from Flourishing Phrases on Very Vanilla, then I cut it with the wunnermus scalloped die from Stitched So Sweetly.

I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a double-loop Linen Thread bow with a Glue Dot and that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I used the Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Flourishing Phrases in Mossy Meadow to a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the image a couple of times to get it darker.  Over the top I stamped the trees image (just once!) from the Let It Ride set in Mossy Meadow.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the horse head from Let It Ride in Crumb Cake on the front…colored the same way that I colored the horse on the front of the card…

…and the trees in Mossy Meadow on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These two sets – Let It Ride and Flourishing Phrases – while not necessarily designed to work together….really do, don’t you think?  I love the pretty trees and the addition of the Pinewood Planks embossing brings it home.  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Parisian Blossoms Sympathy Sneak Peek

Well – here we are!  It’s Christmas Eve!  I know you’re settling in by a fire with a cuppa nog or….something.  And cozy as a bug in a rug!

Oh – wait.  You’re NOT??  You’re…going to pick up the roast for dinner?  Making eggs and desserts and wrapping those last minute gifts??

Yea.  Me, too! LOL!  Have a great day ANYway – take a minute to slow down and enjoy the Season!

My card today is not a Christmas card – gasp! – it’s a sympathy card.  Sorry – but…sometimes you just have to do what you have to do – and I needed to have this on hand.  I used the lovely Timeless Tulips bundle and the Parisian Beauty Bundle with a little help from some Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP.  These will all be available to you on 3 Jan in the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog.  Take a look-see:
