Bold Pop of Petals in Night of Navy and Lovely Lipstick

Bold Pop of Petals in Night of Navy and Lovely Lipstick

This card is not my original idea but I loved it so much I had to recreate it. It is simple enough for a beginner stamper but stunning enough for an avid stamper. I liked it so much, I chose it as one of my cards for my Creative Card Class.

Recipe for my Card:

Start with half a sheet of Night of Navy scored down the middle at 4.25″. You also need two pieces of 4″ x 5.25″ of Lovely Lipstick for the mat on the inside and the outside. You need two pieces of Whisper White measuring 3.75 x 5″ for your stamping.

Stamp as you feel led using the Pop of Petals stamp set and coordinating four petal punch. Adhere all together and don’t forget the envelope!

Other colors I coordinated with:

I hope you love this card as much as I do! Pop of Petals and the Four Petal Punch are carrying over to our new catalog which goes live on June 4th. Don’t wait! Buy it today and save 10% buying it as a bundle.

Thanks for stopping by!

April Thank You’s with Pop of Petals

April Thank You’s with Pop of Petals

When you choose to shop with me, I always send a thank you and if you are local I make a tiny gift to go along with it. These are for my April customers, shown here in Flirty Flamingo.

For my cards I used coordinating Flirty Flamingo Designer Series Paper and a monochromatic butterfly from the Pop of Petals stamp set bundle.

My Card Recipe:

I cut my Flirty Flamingo cardstock in half at 4.25″ down the long side (a hot dog fold) and then I fold it in half again. My card measures 4.25″ x 5.5″. However, instead of having a vertical card I wanted a horizontal card and turned it side ways. I then placed it carefully in my paper trimmer and cut to the score line at 3″. I adhered the DSP and then I took my 1″ circle die and lined it up where I wanted the dip to be in the card. I adhered it with a post it and ran it through my die cutting machine.

For my inside panel I used a piece of Whisper White cardstock measured at 4″ x 5.25″.

Next, I used my four petal punch and cut out my butterfly, adhering it in the dip of my card. Last, but not least, I stamped the antennas on the butterfly and I stamped the ‘Thank You’ from Thankful Thoughts Stamp Set in matching Flirty Flamingo.

Next, I made a couple cute boxes for my customers using the Flirty Flamingo cardstock and coordinating DSP (just like my cards!).

My recipe for the Box:

  1. Cut your cardstock to: 6-7/8″ x 5-1/2″
  2. On the Long Side score it at: 3/4″, 1-3/8″, 2-3/4″, 4-1/8″, 5-1/2″, and 6-1/8″
  3. On the Short Side score it at: 1-3/8 and at 4-1/8″

Cut your DSP pieces at: 1) 2-1/2″ x 1-1/8″ (x 2) and 2) 1-1/8″ x 1-3/16″ (x 2)

I used liquid multipurpose glue and sealed the sides. Choose your front from your back and decorate as you desire. I added white cotton ribbon and white thread to close my box together. It easy holds some cute little Hershey kisses.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’ve loved these gift ideas and as much as my customers do. Another side note: When I send them I write my thoughts on a post it on the inside. That way if they want to re gift my card and send it on, it allows for it. I love that!!!

See you soon!

Pop of Color Using Pop Of Petals Bundle

Pop of Color Using Pop Of Petals Bundle

I love the way this card came together and although I made it in three color options I love them all the same equally.

Here is the Recipe for my card:

I start with a 1/2 sheet of Thick Whisper White and fold it in half again, making a standard card size of 4.25″ x 5.5″.

I take another piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5.25″ and emboss it using my die cutting machine and the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder . I adhere that flat onto my card base and continue on.

I made a couple flag pieces using Basic Black Cardstock and coordinating cardstock (color of my choosing). I make the banner with my
Banner Triple Punch . My flags measure about 3.5″ x 3/4″.

I use the 1.5″ stitched circle die cut and run it through my die cutting machine on Whisper White. I wanted to stamp some black stripes onto my card and liked the water from the Fabulous Flamingo Photopolymer Stamp Set. I used my Black Momento ink to stamp vertically all over my circle.

Next, I took another scrap of Whisper White cardstock and stamped three petals. I did one in the color of my choice (that matched my flag strip) and two stamped in Black Momento. I then punched them out and curled them with my Bone Folder.

I also needed some leaves. I decided on my Leaf Punch and after punching them out in Basic Black cardstock I used my bone folder again and gave them some dimension.

I knew I wanted a sentiment on my card and I had a perfect one to use. I chose the “that was AWESOME” sentiment from the Fabulous Flamingo Photopolymer Stamp set. My daughter was voted Student of the Month for her first time ever (a goal we had been working hard on!) and she deserved a card from her parents reminding her how proud we are of her. It was quite the week.

Once I had all my pieces ready, I assembled my cards very quickly! I used glue dots, dimensionals and snail to adhere the different pieces to my liking. I finished the cards off with Basic Rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope to see you again, soon!

Jar of Love ~ Peek-A-Boo Card Featuring the Hot Dog Fold

Jar of Love ~ Peek-A-Boo Card Featuring the Hot Dog Fold

This card was lots of fun yesterday on my Facebook Live. Did you get a chance to watch it?

I was so excited to make the card that I skipped around a bit and was confusing. I thought I would remedy that by not only blogging about my card but also making a quick tutorial on how I made it.

Feel free to download this tutorial to help you make your own card. I decorated the card using the Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars thinlits, both by Stampin’ Up!

New Cling Stamps ~ By Stampin’ Up!

New Cling Stamps ~ By Stampin’ Up!


Cling stamps were first introduced in Japan beginning with their 2018-2019 annual catalog. The new stamp line has been a smashing success. We are excited to offer cling stamps in all other markets beginning with the 2019 occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure. During the transition, be sure to view product details carefully both in publications (each stamp type is identified with an icon) and when placing orders to note the stamp medium. It will clearly state, CLING STAMP, in the description of what you are buying.

Details!

  • Beginning with the 2019 occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure, all new stamp sets will be available either in cling (for red rubber stamps) or photopolymer.
  • Stamps in the 2018-2019 annual catalog will continue to be available in clear-mount, wood-mount, or photopolymer.
  • Red rubber stamp sets (clear-mount or wood-mount) in the annual catalog that will be carrying over will transition to cling with the 2019-2020 annual catalog.
  • In 2019-2020 annual catalog, clear-mount and wood-mount stamps* will no longer be available. The only exception is background stamps in North America only, which will still be available in wood-mount.
    *Wood-mount stamp set sales have been steadily declining for several years. Stampin’ Up! research and sales teams took this and several other factors into consideration before discontinuing wood-mount stamps. We are confident the transition to cling stamps will be beneficial in many ways for demonstrators, customers, and the company.

Training!

Labeling cling stamps is a slightly different process than you may be used to. It is important to follow the steps below to assemble cling stamps. Each cling stamp case will also include labeling instructions.

Note: Once you place the label on the stamp, it is adhered permanently.Attempting to remove or adjust the label will damage the stamp’s foam.

  • Remove the paper backing from the label.
  • Remove your selected stamp from the rubber sheet and remove the paper backing from the stamp.
  • Line up the foam side of the stamp with the image label, then press it evenly to adhere it to the label. Make sure it is correctly positioned before you adhere it to the stamp.
  • Remove the stamp and its newly-affixed image label from the label sheet.
  • Place the stamp on an acrylic block to begin stamping.

Best Practices!

To remove the stamp from the block, grasp securely near the image label and remove slowly. (Cling stamps stick so well that if they are not carefully removed from the block, the foam can tear.) To clean the labels, simply rinse under running water. Avoid alcohol-based cleaners.

Last but not least, watch the video here to gain confidence in using these new, fun stamps!

Thanks for stopping by today! I will see you again, soon!
