So Much Love Valentine

I’m on a roll with Valentines, and the January-April 2023 Catalog has wonderful products for making them. Today, I’m using the Love For You Bundle and Country Floral Lane Designer Paper on pages 8-11. 

I began with a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, layered with Thick Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, cut with a Split Card Textures Die. This die set was popular, and sold out for a while, but it’s back in stock now.

So Much Love

 

Next, I used Paper Snips to cut three hearts from Country Floral Lane Designer Paper, and attached them with Dimensionals.

 

I love paper words, and the Love For You Die Set has great mix and match words. The “thin” words were cut from Sweet Sorbet Cardstock, backed with “bubbles” of Thick Basic White Cardstock.  The “bubbles” are in one die, but cut out separately. 

After attaching the words with Dimensionals, I stamped tiny hearts in Petal Pink. The tiny heart is one of twenty stamps in the Love For You Stamp Set. You can click on the picture in my Product List below to see everything in the Love For You Bundle.

Sending Sunshine with Rays Of Light

When you want to send sunshine to someone to brighten their day, Stampin’ Up! has perfect products for making that happen. The Rays of Light Stamp Set is a large background stamp that covers the entire card front. I used the “ink to stamp” technique to achieve the color you see.

Sending Sunshine

 

First, I placed Basic White Cardstock on my Stamparatus, held in place by a magnet. Second, the stamp is adhered to the lid of the Stamparatus, which I colored with Stampin’ Write Markers in Real Red and Mango Melody, around the center. Third, I lowered the lid to the white paper, inking and stamping several times. Fourth, I cleaned the stamp, and  added Daffodil Delight with the ink pad, and stamped again, all over. Fifth, I cut the stamped piece, 5 1/4″ X 4″.

After stamping, I taped Real Red Ribbon to the back, and glued my stamped piece to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

“Sunshine to brighten your day” is one of the sentiments in the Sending Smiles Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with a Sending Die. I placed the sentiment on Mini Dimensionals, and attached it on top of the ribbon.

 

“Sending” was created with two, Sending Dies. I used Real Red Cardstock for the word, and Basic White Cardstock for the bubble behind it. Using the bubble provided room for the word to be lifted on Dimensionals.

This card is taking me back to my childhood, when I painted yellow suns with red, smiling faces, and the color combo still makes me smile.

 

I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.

Scenic Garden Sympathy Card

Today’s card was created with the Sale-a-bration Host Stamp Set, Scenic Garden. This set has beautiful, detailed images, that I thought would be fun to color with the heat embossing technique. I began by stamping the image with the gate in VersaMark on Basic White Cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and set it with the Heat Tool. To color, I used seven colors of Stampin’ Blends: Crumb Cake, Pale Papaya, Gray Granite, Mossy Meadow, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, and Petal Pink.

Heaven’s Gate

 

After carefully filling in the tiny embossed spaces with color, I used a Blending Brush and Pool Party Ink to smooth over the image. To keep a “dreamy” feel, I used the third largest Layering Diorama Die for cutting.

 

While coloring, I decided this would make a perfect sympathy card, and used the Raindrops Embossing Folder on the Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

Next, I glued the image to the card base, and found “with sympathy” in The Ginkgo Branch Stamp Set. Then, I used an Eden Die to cut the label from Thick Basic White Cardstock, stamped the sentiment in Memento Black Ink, and attached it with Dimensionals. I usually stamp the sentiment before die cutting, but this die is solid, rather than open.

The final touch was adding some Sea Glass to the foreground. The Sea Glass happens to be my Host Code Gift this month, and you can see the details below.

Ginkgo Branch for a Color Challenge

The Ginkgo Branch Bundle is a favorite, and would look good in any color combination. The fun combination on today’s card is: Orchid Oasis. Parakeet Party, and Highland Heather.

Sparkling Ginkgo Branch

 

I began today’s card with an Orchid Oasis card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.  This was topped with Basic White Cardstock, cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die. Prior to gluing it to the card base, I stamped the Ginkgo Branch, from the Ginkgo Branch Stamp Set, in Highland Heather Ink. Then, I sprayed the card front with Orchid Oasis Ink, by flicking the brush end of the Stampin’ Blend against the lid.

 

Next, I used the large, Ginkgo Branch Die to cut 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper in Parakeet Party. This Glimmer Paper gives the colors a beautiful sparkle!

 

The last step was choosing a sentiment from the Ginkgo Branch Stamp Set. I stamped “thinking of you” in Orchid Oasis Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, used a Ginkgo Branch Die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals. Then, I added three 2022-2024 In Color Matt Dots.

Also, I decided to decorate the envelope flap with Sun Prints Designer Paper, which is shown in the first photo. It’s easy to glue designer paper, 5 3/4″ X 2 1/4″ to the flap, and trim the excess with Paper Snips.

 

I was inspired by The Paper Players.

Around The Bend for Global Design Project 377

This week’s Global Design Project is a color combination: So Saffron, Balmy Blue, and Granny Apple Green. The colors inspired me to experiment with Around The Bend Dies from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. I began with a Granny Apple Green card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. The large, Around The Bend Die, was used to cut the card front, leaving half of the inside exposed.

Around The Bend

 

For the exposed inside, I used a pattern of Dandy Designs Designer Paper in Balmy Blue, 4″ X 5 1/4″. I also wanted to add white to the inside for writing a message. To do this, I used the same Around The Bend Die to cut Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. After cutting, I glued this to the back of the card front, careful to match the die-cuts.

 

The sentiment on the front is from the Something Fancy Stamp Set, also in the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. I stamped “May the good you do come back to you” in Early Espresso Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and used a Something Fancy Die for cutting. Then, I used a Something Fancy Die, a size larger, to cut a frame from Dandy Delight Designer Paper in Granny Apple Green, and attached the glued labels on Dimensionals.

 

To complete the design, I used Dainty Delight Dies to cut two flowers from So Saffron Cardstock, with centers of Early Espresso Cardstock, and attached them with Dimensionals. 

 

Isn’t this a fun color combination? Be inspired by all of the designer’s creations, then add your design to our gallery.

Taco Fiesta Guacamole Birthday Card

I grew up in San Diego, where avocados grow abundantly, and learned to love them as a child. When the avocados were mashed into guacamole, my brother called it green butter. Yum! All this to say, I was excited to create my first card using the Taco Fiesta Stamp Set, featuring avocados!

I began with a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I used an Around The Bend Die to cut the right side of the card front to add interest, and make the birthday card look festive.

Holy Guacamole!

 

After preparing my card base, I stamped six avocado halves in Memento Black Ink. This was followed by stamping three more avocado halves on Basic White Cardstock, which I fussy cut, and colored with Stampin’ Blends in Old Olive and Soft Suede. Do you see the cute faces in the stamp set? I had to add the “wow” face to one of the avocados!

Next, I used another Around The Bend die to cut leaves from Old Olive Cardstock. Then, I glued the leaves, and attached the three, colored, avocados on Dimensionals.

 

The sentiments in the stamp set are so fun, and “Holy Guacamole it’s your birthday” worked perfectly for this card. I stamped it in Memento Black Ink, used a Harvest Die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals. I think a guy would really appreciate this card, don’t you?
