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! Path of Pressed Petals Sympathy Card!

Good morning, y’all!  Here we are on Sunday!  The weekend progresses apace – WAY faster than two days during the week, don’t they?  What the heck is up with that??!

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

The card we made – a Sympathy card (but we all agreed this would be a wonderful wedding card – different sentiment, of course.  LOL) – uses some pieces and parts from the new Pressed Petals suite!  The new Pressed Petals Specialty DSP in this suite is my new fave-paper-of-all-time….ever!  And look what happens when you combine it with the Path of Petals stamp set and the Heirloom 3D Embossing Folders and Dies (that coordinate with the Woven Heirlooms stamp set).  Take a look-see:


Boom-chakalaka! 🙂

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


I started by adhering some wonderful linen-look paper from the Pressed Petals DSP to a Rococo Rose mat for the card front.  Then I took some of the wild roses paper, adhered it to Rococo Rose and then to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I created the frame using the new Heirloom 3D Embossing Folders and Dies – I’ll be getting the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate soon, but for now I used 4 sheets of cardstock as a shim.  I cut the frame from Crumb Cake first, then embossed it in the folder.  I used a Sponge Dauber to brush Crumb Cake over the embossed parts of the frame.


I used my Bone Folder to add some creases in the corners of the frame to create some depth, then I added the frame to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Path of Petals sentiment in Merry Merlot on Very Vanilla and cut it out with a Stitched Shapes Oval die.  Then I popped that inside the frame with Dimensionals.


I created the flower using “petals” from the new Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape and a 1/2″ Circle – you can see how in the video!  Then I added a Perennial Essence Floral Center.

I made a loop-de-loop with some Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo and some Glue Dots, then adhered my flower over top with another Glue Dot, and the card front was done.


On the inside, I used stamped-off-once Mossy Meadow, Rococo Rose and Crumb Cake to add the three-step flower image from Path of Petals to the middle of a Very Vanilla Panel.  Over top I added a second sentiment from Path of Petals in Merry Merlot.


I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Rococo Rose mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Path of Petals flowers in full-strength Mossy Meadow, Rococo Rose and Crumb Cake…


…and more of the wild rose paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.


Et Voila! I think it’s pretty obvious why the Pressed Petals suite is going to be a fave of mine – and the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP already is!  Just go right ahead and get you a pack Right.  This.  Minute.  I mean it.  Don’t even wait!  Heck – get the whole suite – you won’t regret it one second!  I hope you like!

TTFN

 

 

 

P.S.  DO get the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate, y’all – it’s going to make your life much easier with our new folders!  Just sayin’!

But, if your order is over $150, please don’t use this code (you’ll miss out on your own Stampin’ Rewards if you use it) but you’ll still get the free gift.

New 3D Embossing Folder Plate Now Available!

The new 3D Embossing Folder Plate (item 149658) is now available to order! It’s designed to work with our new-style 3D embossing folders (which are thinner than our old-style Dynamic folders).

You can click on the picture above and open the flyer – then print it and keep it by your embossing machine and new 3D Embossing Folder Plate.  It’s got your new “sandwich” information right on it!

Remember that carryover 3D embossing folders will not be available to order at the start of the new catalog but I’ll let you know when they’re available to order.

Also keep in mind that we expect to receive staggered plate shipments in all markets during June and July as we build inventory. Which means, you may experience periods of time when it is unavailable to order if inventory is depleted; it will become available to order again when inventory is replenished.

How to Use the New Plate

The new plate makes up the difference in measurement between our old-style Dynamic Folders and our new-style 3D Folders in most die-cutting machines. The 3D Embossing Folder Plate replaces the Standard Cutting Pads in your 3D embossing folder sandwich for continued high-quality emboss results.

To create your emboss sandwich:

  • Use a die-cutting & embossing machine platform as a base; no matter which machine you’re using, use the standard platform which comes with your machine.
  • Use the 3D Embossing Folder with your paper in the middle.
  • Then use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate on top.

Given the differences in machines and platforms, you may still have to add a shim to get your desired embossing results. (You can also spritz your paper before embossing to maximize your embossed impressions.)

Without the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate, you will need to use several shims with the Standard Cutting Pad in your 3D embossing folder sandwich, depending on the die-cutting & embossing machine you use. Most machines will need between three to five sheets of cardstock to shim. Please be careful in how you shim; start out with fewer sheets first, then add sheets to get your desired results.  Stampin’ Up! won’t be responsible for replacing products broken due to using a sandwich which is too thick for a machine.

I’ve been busy with my thinning scissors.  I really want to clip the Man – but…even though we’d never show in the breed ring (for many reasons!) – I would really hate for his coat to come back in “wrong”.  And I don’t have a good guard for my horse clippers.

So…dog coat thinning scissors it is.

Working on skirt and pantaloonies.  And around his collar…where the knots get.

Wait – what?  You can’t see a difference?!?

Look close.

I cut about two dog’s worth off! 🙁

Humor me, people!

Stampin’ Up! Golden Afternoon Sympathy Card

Good morning!  Well – one week is (almost!) in the books!  And it’s been a busy – and WET!! – one!

Sheesh – on Thursday it just rained buckets and tons.  And it was cold.  Really just a nasty day.  My poor guys were soaked to the skin. 🙁  I’m hoping that today is a little better – but…I’m not holding my breath.  Wishing I’d brought some waders! 😉

My card today is a sympathy card – don’t have a need for it now, but it’s never bad to have one on deck, right?  I used the beautiful Golden Afternoon stamp set and made a super clean-and-simple card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Share a Well Said Ride!

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  The week is progressing – too fast for once – to the weekend.  Before I know it I’ll be headed to the airport to pick up the rental car and bringing it home to pack!  The only real question is whether my list of gotta-get-dones will be got-done by then! 😉

A little admin-y stuff first…I’ve got new info below about some die sets that are in danger of going “not orderable” due to the high demand we’ve experienced.  Take a look and if something you were wanting is on the list…hop to it!  I don’t think they’ll last long…

Okay – My card today is a super easy fun-fold that I made for a friend.  I used some Share What You Love Specialty DSP and the wonderful Let It Ride and Well Said stamp sets.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Dear Doily, Words Can’t Express…

Happy Monday, y’all!  Hope you had a good weekend – or are still having it depending on how you (or your employer!) view the holiday-status of Martin Luther King Day!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I thank you for spending part of your regular/long weekend with me! 😉  If not, but you’d like to see the replay, here is it on YouTube!

I used the new Dear Doily stamp set and bundled Doily Builder Thinlits to do a little embossing and die cutting to create this sympathy card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Golden Afternoon Sympathy

Happy happy Hawwmp Day!!  The week is officially almost half over!  And so is January.  Can you even believe it?!?  That means…only 11 1/2 months until Christmas!

Now THAT’S a scary thought, huh?!?

I mentioned the other day that my friend needed a sympathy card and that I’d made two for her to choose from.  The first was my butterfly card from Monday.  Today I’ve got the second one – this one comes from the new and lovely Golden Afternoon stamp set, to which I added some Neutrals DSP and a little Subtle Embossing.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Flowing Fountain and Roses!

Good morning, y’all, as we head into another week.  Hope it’s looking okay for you – take heart from the fact that next week is a long weekend!

I’m sorry we weren’t able to do our video last night – hopefully by the time you read this they’ll have it fixed.  As in fixed “good” – not just poking along at the speed of dial-up… 😉

So – I needed a sympathy card for my friend – and this is one of two that I made for her to choose from.  This one uses the gorgeous Rose Trellis Thinlits and a few sentiments from the Flowing Fountain stamp set.  Take a look-see:
