Lovin’ The New Varied Vases Set

Varied Vases will be one of the new stamp sets offered in the upcoming 2018-19 Annual Catalog. At this time only those demonstrators that attended OnStage had the opportunity to purchase this set (and it’s coordinating punch) early. So I played around with the stamp set this weekend after being inspired by what the stamp set designer, million dollar achieving demonstrator, Mary Fish shared on her blog. And here is my first card. I love it!

I loved the look of the overlapping images of the vases and the Whisper White layer on Whisper White card base that Mary had done…such a clean design. I wanted to keep the sentiment pretty easy though, so didn’t do any embossing on mine.

Here is one more version using a different sentiment from the set and sequins instead of rhinestones.

Measurements:

  • Whisper White cardstock: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ folded in half at 4-1/4″ for the card base & 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″
  • Pineapple Punch cardstock: strip that is 3/4″ wide
  • Coastal Cabana cardstock: strip that is 1/2″ wide

Products:  See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Helpful Tips:

  • Trim the left end of the Coastal Cabana cardstock strip and the Pineapple Punch strip to create the look of a banner.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the Pineapple Punch strip.
  • Attach this to the Coastal Cabana strip and then attach to the 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ Whisper White piece about one inch from the top. Trim off any excess extending off the the right edge.
  • Stamp the vase, flower and leaf images. (The short vase is a lighter shade of Grapefruit Grove ink than the flowers because I stamped onto scrap paper first.)
  • Attach stamped layer to the card base with Dimensionals.
  • Then embellish with either Rhinestones or sequins.

June 1st is the magic day! And there are many other fabulous products that will also become available from the new catalog that day. I’ve been pinning some fun card ideas on Pinterest!

If you absolutely can’t wait until June, consider purchasing the Starter Kit so you can get in on the demonstrator perk of purchasing early. (Yep! All demonstrators get to preorder new products in May!)

  • Rich Razzleberry or Pumpkin Pie cardstock: scraps for punching beak and feet

Directions:

  • Punch 2-1/4″ circle punch half-way into the top edge of the card. (I don’t recommend punching through both layers at once. Punch through one, and then fold the card shut and punch through the other.)
  • Emboss the front of the card base for texture.
  • Sponge color onto the Springtime Foils Designer Paper. Then punch into the designer paper with the 2-1/4″ circle punch.
  • Punch the beak, feet and circles for the eyes.
  • Assemble the card. Accent with rhinestone buttons or a bow.

On this one I even added a little shine to the eyes using the white pencil and the Watercolor Pencils.

This card comes from the Mixed Medallions Card Kit, another Sale-a-Bration pick. I altered it just a little by using the “for you” sentiment in the Cake Soirée stamp set and a few other products.

This last card was sent to me by Doris Schlager. Isn’t it so pretty!? She used the beautiful flower image from the Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Amazing You on a Calypso Coral card from the Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes, another Sale-a-Bration pick. PLUS, the sentiment image is from Heartfelt Blooms, one of the most popular Sale-a-Bration stamp sets this year.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop – May Good Things Grow

It's a Paper Pumpkin Thing blog hop… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Yay! It’s time again to see lots of alternate Paper Pumpkin kit ideas!
#APaperPumpkinThing
Today is the day where a creative team of us Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators bring to you our special “A Paper Pumpkin Thing” blog hop. See what I have to share, then check out all the other blogs in the hop to see additional creative alternate paper crafting project ideas that we each came up with using the contents of the March 2018 “May Good Things Grow” Paper Pumpkin kit. To follow the hop, simply scroll down to click the “next” button or click on the names of other participants in the hop.

This month’s kit is very beautiful and has a vintage flair! Click here to see the March kit video put out by Stampin’ Up! where you can view how to make these floral cards and envelopes as intended.

Click here to watch a how-to video and see fun alternate project ideas I created with the March 2018 May Good Things Grow Paper Pumpkin kit: How to get 28 cards from the kit contents, a fun flower seed container, and a 12x12 scrapbook page (2 versions)...#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I’ve already shared several of my creations in a couple past posts using the contents of this kit. So I invite you to check out those creations as well:

But today I have a couple fun-fold card ideas for those of you who like to give cards that “wow.”

This first card is a Vertical Stretch fun-fold card. I shared how to make this style card on Facebook and posted the video and photos on March 17th. The card folds shut to a typical 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ size.

But when it opens it stretches to 4-1/4″ x 11″ and shows off two pieces of 4″ x 4″ designer paper – or in this case two pieces of 4″ x 4″ papers from the envelopes. (The scores on the Early Espresso card base are at 2-3/4″, 4-1/4″, 7-1/4″ and 8-1/2.”)

This is how the folds look from a side view.

And if you didn’t notice, the second 4″ x 4″ piece isn’t all one piece. I wanted the entire frame design from the envelope paper, so I trimmed the top two inches and the bottom two inches and discarded the middle section.

To get the “doily” embellishment, I attached a section from the fancy label so it peeked out from the bottom of the rose paper layer. I also added brads to the bottom two corners of the frame paper layer and the top two corners of the rose paper layer. Notice how I pressed down the prongs? Angling them to an “L” shape when flattening them in the back will keep them from showing from the front.

This second card is a Pop Open fun-fold card. It’s free-standing!

I created it by opening up on envelope, positioning it in the trimmer as shown, and trimming the solid colored area 3 inches from the bottom edge.

Then I removed those top sections.

Next I folded the larger side flap over and scored through the middle of this 4-inch wide card.

I attached the shorter side flap to the larger. The envelope is now inside out from where it first started. Then I trimmed off the bottom flap and made sure it stood up sturdy.

I cut two 1-inch wide slits through the middle 1-1/2″ inches down from the top and 2″ down from the top. I then placed four more score lines (all 1/4″ apart) in this section to create a pop out tab.

I added a Dimensional to the middle to keep the middle crease from folding and to allow the label piece a little more of a lift.

And then I just embellished with with a couple Gold Mini Tassels and die-cuts from the kit.
