It Started With Just a Few Strips

Normally I open a second box and end up using about 1-1/2 kits each month to make my Paper Pumpkin alternate projects. But I only worked with one box this time. So I didn’t have much left over from the October Paper Pumpkin kit when it came down to make six of one more card design: five to gift to my prize-winning subscribers and one to keep as a sample.

I think I get the most creative when I have very few products in front of me. Because I love the card I’m sharing with you today! I had only some partial card bases left (two with ovals cut from the middle) and a few extra strips from other card bases. So with 18 1/2″ wide strips of card base paper, 6 pairs of tree trunks, some cardinals, some snowflake sequins, and the help of some annual catalog products, I came up with this layout.

No sentiments. In fact…no stamp images. WHAT!? It’s true. I love stamping, but it IS possible to make cards without those great inks and stamps. hehehe

Here are the details if you wish to recreate this card.

Products I used… See below for a complete list of extra products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements…

  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock
    • 4-1/4” x 11″ scored parallel to the short side at 5-1/2”
  • Basic Black Cardstock
    • 2-3/4” x 4-3/4” scrap for die-cutting the Stitched Nested Label Die
  • Kit card base (blue “watercolor wash” sections)
    • 2-1/2″ x 1/2″ strips (three of them that vary in design/color somewhat)
  • Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon
    • 13″

Directions…

  • Fold Whisper White card base, crease with the Bone Folder, and wrap and tie ribbon in a knot. Don’t trim ends yet and don’t secure with any adhesive. You may need to maneuver later.
  • Die-cut Basic Black scrap with the Stitched Nested Label Die that measures a little less than 2-1/2″ wide. After die-cutting, use SNAIL to adhere the strips of blue. Start with the middle one, then adhere the other two just above and just below leaving a small gap. Use a sponge to apply Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back side and adhere the trees. Make sure the strips are running horizontally and the trees are running vertically so they are perpendicular to each other. Also make sure to have the sparkly side of the trees showing.
  • Trim the excess sections of the strips and tree parts. Then set this back within the Stitched Nested Label Die. The black should line up with the stitches. You may have to rotate it 180 degrees to get it to fit again. Then die-cut it all once again to get the stitching through all layers.

  • With the help of the Take Your Pick Tool, attach the cardinal and the snowflake sequins with the glue dots from the kit. Then add this layer to the front of the card using Dimensionals. Shift/adjust the ribbon so the knot is lying just underneath, and trim the ends.
  • Stamp a sentiment of your choice on the inside if you wish.

Sympathy Cards

Many of you know that my husband’s dad passed away in late June. It’s really been a rough road for Tim, his mom, his sisters, and his dad’s siblings.

Since his passing we have been showered with sweet messages of condolences and we’ve received some very special cards in the mail. I can’t possibly share all of them, but i wanted to share a few cards that were made with current Stampin’ Up!® product. That way if you are inspired to want to recreate (CASE) one of these, you may certainly do so.

(I’ve placed the name of the person who made the card in the watermark of the photo.)

I’m giddy because my sister and I leave for this trip in just two weeks!!! I can’t believe this fabulous dream-come-true trip that I earned just sharing what I love is almost here!

This is the swap card I’ll be bringing with me. It’s an arrow fold card.

Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop June 2019: New 2019-20 Annual Catalog Products! This is my swap card for this trip. It’s an arrow-fold card that I made with the Mosaic Mood Designer paper and the Woven Heirlooms Stamp Set. Click here for directions, measurements and supplies. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Since I learned how to make these arrow fold cards last month and adapted the measurements to work with our A2-size envelopes, I’ve already made a few different ones with our new products. Click here to see the one I made with the Magnolia Lane Suite of products. And click here to see the one I made with the Garden Lane Designer Paper and Butterfly Wishes Stamp Set.

I love this sentiment in the Woven Heirlooms stamp set and felt that it went well with this card design. Plus sad to say, but I’m in need of sympathy cards lately.

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions…

  • Mark the bottom front of the folded horizontal Very Vanilla card base at 2-3/4″. Mark each of the sides of the front of the card at 2-1/8″.
  • Connect the 2-3/4″ mark to each of the 2-1/8″ marks with score lines. Connect the 2-3/4″ mark to each of the upper corners with score lines.
  • This card is harder to explain with just written directions, so I encourage you to watch my video that I made for the Magnolia version of this card to catch all the tips and directions for making an arrow fold card.
  • Fold the outer score lines forward. Then fold the inner score lines backward to create the arrow. Use a Bone Folder to make the crease lines crisp. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the folded over sections of the arrow in place.
  • Mark the bottom of the Terracotta Tile Cardstock in the middle at 2-1/2″. Then follow the directions in the video for cutting from this point diagonally to each of the top corners to make three triangular pieces. Adhere these to the front sections of the card base.
  • Mark the bottom of the Mosaic Mood Designer Paper in the middle at 2-1/4″. Cut from this point diagonally to each of the top corners to make three triangular pieces. Adhere these to the Terracotta Tile sections of the card.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the inside of the card.
  • Fussy-cut the flower and leaves and adhere to the front of the card with Dimensionals.
  • Tie the bow and add below the flower with a Glue Dot.

Our travel documents for this Greek Isles trip arrived last week. But it’s been so busy here, that I haven’t shared them yet.

It was so exciting to open up. Stampin’ Up! always impresses with the beautiful packaging and gifts to its incentive trip earners. We are treated like royalty. Inside this beautiful ribbon-wrapped box…

Needing Prayers For My Father-In-Law

My father-in-law, Fred is in need of prayers and well wishes. I don’t want to share details because it’s not my place to do so. He IS home and stable right now. Tests are revealing some information yet there are many questions still unanswered. I’m hoping that by letting you know, you’ll be aware in case I have lapses in posts. Plus I really believe in the power of prayer. The more positive energy sent Fred’s way, the better. ❤️

I made this card from the Healing Hugs Stamp Set, Glitter Enamel Dots, and Nature’s Poem Designer Paper. I think it’s the perfect card to send to Papa. So we’ll put our notes inside and get it out in the mail today.

ANNUAL CATALOG NEWS
Due to recent supplier issues (and other factors), Stampin’ Up! will no longer be carrying the current die-cutting machine and trimmer: The Big Shot and Stampin’ Trimmer are retiring. These changes are giving Stampin’ Up! the opportunity to research and explore replacement options. But there will be a gap when we do not have a trimmer or die-cutting machine available. You will not see these items in the upcoming 2019-20 Annual Catalog that debuts June 4, 2019. Click here for more information.
