Painted Pheasant Thanksgiving Card

The pheasant is a near relative of the turkey, and here he is on a Thanksgiving card. He enjoys saying, “Happy Thanksgiving,” and is extremely thankful he isn’t a turkey! He is from the Painted Pheasant Stamp Set, along with the sentiment, colored with an array of Stampin’ Write Markers: Blackberry Bliss, Mint Macaron, Petal Pink, and Daffodil Delight. The markers come in color collections that you can see in my Product List below.

 

 To color the pheasant, I used the “ink to stamp” technique, which is painting the stamp with the Stampin’ Write Markers. The Stamparatus holds the Basic White Cardstock in place, while coloring the stamp on the lid of the Stamparatus, and lowering it to stamp the paper, one color at a time. 

After coloring, I used the second largest Deckled Rectangles Die for cutting, and brushed the edge with a Sponge Dauber and Old Olive Ink. I layered this on Old Olive Cardstock, cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die, which was layered on a Blackberry Bliss card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

The pheasant is standing on dots created with a Perched In A Tree stamp and Daffodil Delight Ink.

 

I stamped “Happy Thanksgiving” in Blackberry Bliss Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and made two cuts with the smallest Deckled Rectangles Die to get the desired size. Then, I made a frame for the sentiment, using the smallest Deckled Rectangles Die to cut from Pool Party Cardstock, and attached it with Dimensionals.

The envelope flap is decorated with another Painted Pheasant stamp, which I stamped five times in Old Olive Ink.

Christmas Cup

 

The center panel is Painted Christmas Designer Paper, 2 1/2″ X 5 3/8″, layered on Garden Green Cardstock, 1/8″ larger, giving a 1/16″ border. The card base is Thick Basic White Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, embossed with a Wintry Embossing Folder.

 

The sentiment is from the Decorated with Happiness Stamp Set, stamped in Garden Green Ink on Basic White Cardstock, 4 1/8″ X 1 1/2″. Prior to attaching it with Dimensionals, I used a Sentiments Silhouettes Die to create the tiny holes across the bottom. Finally, I couldn’t help but add three 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots that perfectly matched the pink dots in the designer paper.

Folded Corner Technique in Black and White

The folded corner technique is especially easy with Stampin’ Up’s beautiful, two-sided designer paper. I simply cut a 4″ X 5 1/4″ piece of Perfectly Penciled Designer Paper, and folded down the upper right corner, exposing the other side.

Prior to gluing the designer paper to the Thick, Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black Ink. “Thank you for everything” is from the Color & Contours Stamp Set.

“Corner Fold” with wagon

 

How do you like the focal point? Isn’t that wagon adorable! The Parakeet Party Cardstock wagon was cut with a die from the Playful Piggy Die Set. This die set is a sneak peek of one of six sets that will be offered the month of September, during the Perfect Partners Promotion. It coordinates with This Birthday Piggy Stamp Set that is currently available. 

No pigs are in sight for this card, because I filled the wagon with flowers from the the Hello Harvest Stamp Set. After stamping the flowers in Parakeet Party Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, I used a Rustic Pumpkin Die for cutting. Then, I glued the flowers to the wagon, and attached it with dimensionals.

 

To highlight the corner with an additional pop of color, I attached three Parakeet Party Matte Dots.

Sneak Peek of This Birthday Piggy Dies

You are in for a surprise, come September! The Birthday Piggy Stamp Set from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog will have a set of Playful Piggy Dies that you can order separately, or in a bundle. Today’s birthday card uses just one of the 18 dies.

Isn’t this pig adorable? I stamped her in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and used her Playful Piggy Die for cutting. Then, I colored her with Stampin’ Blends in Petal Pink and Crumb Cake, and her flowers in Polished Pink, Parakeet Party, and Daffodil Delight.

Weeee!

 

For her background, I used the third largest Scalloped Contours Die to cut Basic White Cardstock. This was attached with Dimensionals to Petal Pink, Subtles 6″X6″ Designer Paper, cut with the largest Scalloped Contours Die. Both were glued to a Crumb Cake card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Prior to attaching, I stamped “Weeee!” and “it’s your birthday” in Crumb Cake Ink, provided by This Birthday Piggy Stamp Set.

 

The Playful Piggy Dies are not in a catalog, and will only be available as long as supplies last. The bundle is #162521, and the dies #160254, which can be purchased in September during the Perfect Partners Promotion. The stamp set, #159107, can be seen in my Product List below, and purchased now.

 

This is just a sneak peek of the dies for This Birthday Piggy. More news will be coming about new die sets for six popular stamp sets in the Perfect Partners Promotion. Isn’t the wagon cute?

Split Card Textures Awash In Beauty

I missed out on the Split Card Textures Dies the first time around, and they went out-of-stock. I jumped on it when they came back in, and couldn’t wait to make this card! The die worked perfectly on my 4″ X 5 1/4″ Basic White Cardstock, leaving a small border. You can turn the pattern in four directions, but I chose to have the pattern on the left side for today’s card.

Split Card Textures

 

Next, I backed the die-cut pattern with Balmy Blue, Awash In Beauty Designer Paper, cut 1/16″ smaller, so it wouldn’t show after gluing. This was glued to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I put my Paper Snips to use, and cut a gorgeous bouquet from the Awash In Beauty Designer Paper.

 

Prior to gluing, I stamped the sentiment, “just because,” from the True Beauty Stamp Set. Don’t you love the font? This is the one suite from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog where I bought the whole shebang, which included the Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels, so I added a few pearls to complete my card.

 

I was inspired by the Paper Players, and chose the middle row across: die cut, blue, patterned paper.

Tidings of Comfort and Joy

Today’s card began with the idea of framing one of the beautiful sentiments from the Hope & Peace Stamp Set. I stamped “Tidings of comfort and joy” in Evening Evergreen Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I used the oval, Fabulous Frames Die for cutting, and a second time to cut a frame from Soft Succulent Cardstock. After layering both pieces for thickness, I attached Dimensionals on the back to hold the framed words together, as well as raise it on the card front.

Christmas Music

 

The card base is Evening Evergreen Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, layered with Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. Prior to gluing the white layer, I embossed it with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder. This embossing folder is especially appropriate, because we’ve been told it’s the music to “Joy to the World.”

 

The pretty red and green print is Painted Christmas Designer Paper, 2″ X 4 1/2″, layered on Evening Evergreen cut 1/8″ larger, giving it a 1/16″ border. For a bit of detail, I added a Real Red Cardstock bow, cut with a Decorated Pine Die, and an Iridescent Pearl to complete it.
