Fresh Cut Flowers Bundle Note Cards

Through the month of September, six sets of dies are being made available through the Perfect Partners promotion. These six die sets coordinate with six stamp sets from the 2022-23 Annual Catalog. I featured the Apple Harvest stamp set with the coordinating limited-time Apple Blossoms dies from this promotion on August 20th. If you missed that pop-out bendy fun-fold card, be sure to click here to check it out.

Today I’m sharing the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set with the coordinating limited-time Fresh Cut Stems dies. I’ve paired them together with the Go To Greetings stamp set, Rose Gold specialty papers and coordinating embellishments to make a set of “Thinking of You” note cards.

Here are the notecards. I made 3 variations. If making 20 cards total, you could make them all the same or make a variety like I did…7 of two styles and 6 of the other.

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

Card Measurements (in addition to the already precut Kraft Note Cards & Envelopes)…

  • Basic White Cardstock
    • (20) 1-1/2” x 3-1/2″
    • (20) Scrap for stamping and die-cutting floral image
    • (20) 3″ x 4-1/2″ (for the inside of the card)
  • Rose Gold Specialty Paper
    • (20) Scrap for die-cutting branch

If making just one card, follow the card measurements above and do not cut pieces for the gift box (measurements are below). If making a set of 20 cards, be sure to cut 20 of each measurements above.

Card Directions…

  • Stamp (with Garden Green or Sahara Sand) and die-cut floral image. Color with Blends Markers:
    • pink: Crumb Cake, Soft Succulent & Flirty Flamingo Blends Markers
    • blue: Crumb Cake, Old Olive & Balmy Blue Blends Markers
    • red: Crumb Cake & Sweet Sorbet Blends Markers (leaves are colored by using a Blending Pen and drawing out the Garden Green ink from the stamped image)
  • Stamp (with Garden Green or Sahara Sand) sentiment on Basic White strip.
  • Die-cut branch and adhere the die-floral to the branch so the branch peeks out on the left. Embellish the flower center with a jewel:
    • pink paired with iridescent Rose Gold sheet: Iridescent Rhinestone
    • blue paired with matte Rose Gold sheet: copper Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dot
    • red paired with metallic Rose Gold sheet: Champagne Rhinestone

  • Add the floral layered piece before or after adding the sentiment strip.
  • Add the inside white layer.

Box Measurements (in addition to the already precut Kraft Storage Box)…

  • Basic White Cardstock
    • Scrap for stamping and punching sentiment
  • Rose Gold Specialty Paper
    • Scraps for die-cutting flowers
  • Basic White Crinkled Seam Binding
    • 8”

Box Directions

  • Die-cut one flower from each of the three Rose Gold Specialty Papers. Add each to the box lid with one Glue Dot in the center. The Stampin’ Up! Glue Dots are wide enough and small enough to just fit under the center rings of the die-cut flowers. Then embellish the flower centers with coordinating jewels:
    • iridescent sheet with Iridescent Rhinestone
    • matte sheet with copper Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dot
    • metallic sheet with Champagne Rhinestone
  • Stamp and punch sentiment. Add it with Dimensionals.
  • Tie a bow in the ribbon and add it with a Glue Dot.

Thanks for stopping by to see what I had to share today. On Wednesday during my Live at 11:00 AM Central Time on YouTube and on Facebook I’ll be sharing some note cards “with dimension” with the This Birthday Piggy stamp set and the coordinating limited-time Playful Piggy dies. Join me if you can.

Celebrating Susan… Pop Out Bendy Fun Fold Card

#25StampaversaryForSusan

It’s time to celebrate my mentor, friend, and upline Susan Campfield! She just reached her 25th Stampin’ Up!® anniversary. And we are throwing her an online celebration through this special blog hop today! To follow the hop, see what I have to share, then check out all the other blogs in the hop for additional creative ideas by clicking the navy blue “next” button towards the bottom of my post and towards the bottom of each post to follow.

Our hop not only celebrates this kind, generous, and creative gal, but it celebrates the inspiration and leadership she gives to her entire team and other demonstrator peers.

We were inspired by one of the latest fun fold cards she shared on her blog on 7/27/22. So our hop will be showing many versions of that Pop Out Bendy Fun Fold Card.

I used the Apple Harvest stamp set, the coordinating Apple Blossoms dies (that will be available to all come September 1st through the Perfect Partners Promotion), and a designer paper pack that may surprise you…Painted Christmas.

Products I used… a complete list of products I used is shown below, and everything is linked to where you can find them in my online store.

I’m loving the Pop Out Bendy Fun Fold Card. I made one with the Apple Harvest Stamp Set, Apple Blossoms Dies, and Painted Christmas Designer Paper. Visit my 8/20/22 blog post to see more photos and to learn how to make this card. You’ll also be able to follow links in that post to see many other versions of this fun fold card. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

It starts out looking like a typical Gate Fold Card. But once you slide off the belly band, you get a fun surprise. The inside floats towards you!

Measurements…

  • Garden Green Cardstock
    • 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” scored parallel to the short side at 4-1/4” and in from each end at 2-1/8” for card base
    • 1” x 5-1/8” scored parallel to the short side 1/2” in from each end for bendy piece
    • 1” x 3” scored parallel to the short side at 1/2” and 1” in from each end for the “wobble”
    • (2) 2” x 5-3/8” for the layering panels inside the card (Die-cut a 4″ x 5-3/8″ piece with the Stitched Greenery Die first and then cut in half.)
  • Real Red Cardstock
    • 1” x 9-1/4” for the bellyband
    • 2-7/8″ x 2-7/8″ for the front layer
  • Basic White Thick Cardstock
    • Scrap for die-cutting the 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ stitched square for the front
    • Scrap for stamping and die-cutting the front apples on a branch image
    • Scrap for stamping and die-cutting the inside apples on a branch image
    • Scrap for stamping and die-cutting the sentiment piece on the inside
    • (2) 2” x 5-3/8” for the panels on the back of the card
  • Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper
    • (2) 2” x 5-3/8” for the layering panels inside the card (red herringbone image)
    • (2) 2” x 5-3/8” for the layering panels outside front of the card (leaves image)
  • Gold & Vanilla Satin Edged Ribbon
    • 8-1/2″ to wrap along belly band
    • 5-1/2″ to wrap along bendy piece

You’ll be able to find a how-to video within Susan’s blog post, so I won’t attempt to write everything down here. But be sure to attach the strips of ribbon to the belly band and the inside bendy piece BEFORE doing any other attaching. You may also want to practice coloring with your Blends Markers onto scrap pieces of cardstock before coloring on your final images. Here are the Blends I used for the images…

  • flowers – Petal Pink (light)
  • inside of apples – Petal Pink (light)
  • outside of apples – Calypso Coral (light), Real Red (dark and light), Cherry Cobbler (dark and light)
  • leaves – Soft Sea Foam (dark), Old Olive (light), Shaded Spruce (light)
  • branches – Soft Suede (light), Bronze

I think the rest will make sense after watching her video.

Since there is no place to sign this card on the front or inside, I added white cardstock to the back like Susan had done on a couple of her cards. If you didn’t visit her blog to see her cards yet, click here.

Masking Paper Basics with Pretty Medallion

When Stampin’ Up! added the Masking Paper to our product line, I was super excited! I don’t use it often enough. But when I do, I can’t stop creating and want to try out all the possibilities. Think of it as giant Post It® Notes but with a stronger stick.

So I had a few minutes to play around last week with this Masking Paper and a background stamp I’ve been dying to design with: Pretty Medallion. And today I have two pretty, but easy-to-make greeting cards to share!

I share the basics of using Stampin’ Up!’s Masking Paper and how to make a couple cards with the Pretty Medallion Stamp Set, the Simply Fabulous Stamp Set, dye-based inks & Blending Brushes, heat embossing, and of course…the Masking Paper. Click here to access measurements, other photos, links to the products I used, and tips and directions in my how-to video. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I tried sharing these last week, but my two attempts at live broadcasts didn’t work. My apologies to those of you who showed up and hung in there with me through those 30 minutes.

I just showed live on YouTube and on Facebook about an hour ago step-by-step directions for the basics of using Stampin’ Up!’s Masking Paper and how to make these two cards with the Pretty Medallion Stamp Set, the Simply Fabulous Stamp Set, dye-based inks & Blending Brushes, heat embossing, and of course…the Masking Paper. And now I’m sharing that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog post), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.

The July 2022 Sending Good Thoughts Paper Pumpkin Kit. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I’ve already shared some other alternate projects using the contents of this kit on July 23rd

  • Four unique alternate card ideas includinga z-fold easel card
    • a mini shaker card
    • a monster fun fold card
    • and a slider card
  • AND… a 12×12 scrapbook page layout

Today I am sharing…

  • A “message in a bottle” treat box
  • AND… a triangle easel card

I’m excited about this first one, because I was able to manipulate one of the card bases into a box just with a few simple folds. Plus from the front it appears that the middle bottle is holding the rolled up message.

I created a triangle easel card and a message-in-a-bottle treat box with the July 2022 Sending Good Thoughts Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin’ Up!. Visit my 8/5/22 blog post for the details PLUS you can see several other alternate project ideas created with this kit by fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators in our blog hop: “A Paper Pumpkin Thing”! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

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…

  • Gray card base from the kit 
    • 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored parallel to the short side at 1-3/4″, 2-3/4″, 4-1/4″ and 5-1/4″ then scored parallel to the long side 1″ in from each side
  • Blue envelope paper from the kit
    • 3-1/8″ x 3-3/8″
    • 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ (this forms the rolled up paper for the message in the bottle)
  • Crumb Cake Cardstock
    • 1″ x 3-3/8″ torn in half to create two layers of beach/sand.

Directions… 

  • After scoring the gray card base and cutting in along each side score line to create tabs, cut out the following pieces shown in this second image…
    • the two long 1″ x 3-1/4″ sections
    • a 1/2″ x 1″ section on the right just below the first tab to make that second tab 1″ x 1″ (like the one above it)
    • a 3/4″ x 1″ section in the bottom right corner to make that last tab 1″ x 1″ (now all the tabs on the right are 1″ x 1″
    • a 1/4″ x 1″ section in the bottom left corner

  • Flip this prepared piece over and add a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive along the 1/4″ section at the bottom. You may want to play it safe, go beyond the edge a bit, and then fold the tape back over onto itself (as shown in the lower right photo above).
  • Flatten the taped end over as shown below.
  • Now fold in the tabs at each end to create the box. The images below should help. You really only need Tear & Tape on the last tab if you are following how I folded my tabs in in the photos. In that lower right photo, notice which tab goes in first? This allows you to insert your rolled up message later. OH! And be sure to add any candy or treats before sealing both ends.

  • Stamp the sentiment onto the 3-1/8″ x 3-3/8″ blue paper. Adhere it to the top area of the box.
  • Then add the birds, twine, pearls, metallic dots, and rolled up message.

My second idea was inspired by a card that Elaine Mitzel created and shared when she was the May 2022 Showcase Stamper…her gray easel card (the last one). It forms a triangle when propped up into the easel. So I’m calling it a triangle easel card. Here is the version of this fun fold I made with the contents of this Paper Pumpkin kit.

Directions…

  • Add adhesive to the top part of the 1/2″ section of the 4″ x 4″ striped piece, position it with the teal card base as shown in the second photo below, and fold the teal base over to pick up the sticky 1/2″ section so the start of the card looks like the third photo when done.
  • Now stamp the starfish image all over the gray strips and one of the larger gray pieces.

  • Then decorate the front flap…
    • Stamp and add Bermuda Bay ink to the starfish.
    • Stamp the banner, wrap and tie on twine, and add it with Dimensionals while tucking in the coral.
    • Pull the coral forward to add a bit of glue behind the middle section and flatten it down.
    • Pull some of the coral ends forward again to tuck and add the starfish with a Dimensional.
    • Then add the self-adhesive sequins.

A Million Thanks Kit Doubled

I needed eighteen cards to send to my club members this month. So I split up the supplies in the A Million Thanks Kit from the Kits Collection,…

…added in Basic White Cardstock and Rhinestones, and took those supplies for nine cards and doubled them.

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

Measurements

  • Basic White Cardstock
    • (18) 5-1/2” x 8-1/2″ scored parallel to short side at 4-1/4”
    • (9) 2-1/16″ x 3-1/4″
  • Kit card bases each cut into two 4″ x 5-1/4″ pieces

Here are the cards I created.

I altered the contents in the A Million Thanks Kit by Stampin’ Up!® to produce 18 instead of just 9 cards. So I doubled the cards in the kit! Visit my 7/29/22 blog post to see all the designs.

They are pretty similar to the intended kit cards, right?

A Million Thanks Kit by Stampin’ Up!. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

But by just cutting the kit card bases into two 4″ x 5-1/4″ pieces, creating a few extra sentiment labels (punching each end of the 2-1/16″ x 3-1/4″ white strips with the Label Me Lovely Punch), and making the design of the cards a bit simpler/less layered, you can really extend this kit and get so much more for the money. Here are photos of each of the 6 designs a bit closer up.

Yay! I had fun with this kit. The sentiments in the stamp set are beautiful, and the embossed papers and rich colors are so pleasing to the eye. I hope you enjoyed what I shared.

Botanical Layers – Cards 3 & 4

Last week I shared with you two of the cards I created with the printed vellum sheets from the Lovely Layers Vellum. Click here to see the vellum.

As you may recall, there are four printed designs that come in this vellum pack and then a bunch of plain sheets of vellum. All of the vellum sheets are 3-3/4″ x 5″ which is a great size for layering onto 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ cards.

  • Click here to see how I used the plain sheets for the “floating element” look.
  • Click here to see last week’s cards I made with two of the printed sheets.

Today I am sharing my other two cards. These vellum sheets are part of the Botanical Layers Bundle. And just like last week’s, these two cards are paired with patterned paper from the Design a Daydream Designer Paper Pack. (Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.)

Here is my first one.

Directions

  • Stamp sentiment onto Basic White scrap, then die-cut so this piece is positioned as a diamond. Add Seal Adhesive behind this sentiment piece. Have three sets of leaves punched and ready.
  • Adhere the designer paper to the white card base.
  • Then position but don’t adhere Lovely Layers Vellum and leaves. Hover the sentiment diamond overtop. Be sure the lines of the designer paper line up with the sentiment diamond shape. Then bring the leaves up one at a time and connect to the sentiment piece making sure the leaves will still be within the boundaries of the card base.
  • Add more Seal behind the sentiment layer, line the vellum up on the designer paper again, and add the sentiment/leaves piece to the vellum. Pick up the vellum/sentiment/leaves piece, add more adhesive behind the sentiment layer, and position one more time over the card to attach everything altogether.
  • Embellish with the ribbon tied in a bow and a few Iridescent Pearls.

And here is my second card.

Directions

  • Stamp the sentiment and die-cut with the 1-3/4″ diameter stitched circle. Add Dimensionals to the back and set aside.
  • Line up the vellum over the designer paper. Adhere the Basic Black strip to the Lovely Layers Vellum. Add the vellum to the designer paper (adhesive should go on the back of the black strip only). Add the designer paper to the card base and add the white layer to the inside.
  • Color the ribbon with the Dark Basic Black Blends Marker. Allow to dry. Add about 1/2″ of Seal to one end. Then add the ribbon and sentiment circle to the card.
  • Embellish with a few Iridescent Pearls.

I hope what I designed gave you some creative inspiration. Thanks for stopping by to see what I had to share today.
