Whimsical Christmas Card for my Stash!

I needed to make 6 cards for a monthly swap that I participate in. I wanted to focus on the Host Designer Series Paper called Celebrate Everything and thought the bright colors were so fun! I made a couple extra to start my Christmas card stash…pretty impressive for me, since I usually start making Christmas cards in December! The card base is Granny Apple Green and I cut a full size 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ layer to run through the machine with the Brick & Morter 3D Embossing Folder. Glued that onto the base…glued the circles directly on as well and popped the sentiment up with Dimensionals. The bits of glitter in the Opal Rounds match the ribbon perfectly! So…have YOU started on your Christmas cards yet?

Card Recipe
Stamp Set: Brightest Glow
Cardstock: Basic White, Granny Apple Green
Designer Series Paper: Celebrate Everything
Ink: Shaded Spruce
Lovelies: Glittered Organdy Ribbon, Opal Rounds
Tools: Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder, Stylish Shapes Dies

Rings of Love Last Chance Diagonal Fold Card

I am so excited to share my fun fold card with you today! This is the Diagonal Fold Card and is super easy – start with an 8 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of cardstock. Score and fold in half on both sides at 4 1/4″, then one diagonal score/fold from one corner to the opposite corner. Easy peasy! I adore the Rings of Love Designer Series Paper and wanted to feature that. It’s only available through tomorrow during Sale-a-Bration (through 8/31/22). Thought I’d add the cute, fat bird from Perched in a Tree, which can be found in the July to December 2022 catalog. There are matching dies, too, called Aspen Tree Dies, which can be earned for free the next two days as well, or can be purchased through the end of the year both individually or in a bundle with the stamp set to save 10%. This card uses a lot of retired products, too. Don’t forget to dust off some old faves and show them some love!

Stamp Sets: Perched in a Tree, Timeless Tropical*, Special Moments*
Cardstock: Basic White, Misty Moonlight*, Soft Succulent, Soft Suede
Designer Series Paper: Rings of Love (SAB)

Time to Get Caught Up with a Card-again!

Oh my! Can you believe it?!? Over 3 months since my last post. Life has been a whirlwind – adding a beautiful Daughter-in-Love to the family… watching the youngest daughter leave the nest… Time to breathe a sigh of satisfaction and start posting again! Today’s card is so appropriate – a punny play on a cardigan sweater from the Forever Friendship stamp set in the July to December 2022 mini catalog. I used the Dots & Spots Die for the background to give it a subtle pattern. You can earn it for free during Sale-a-Bration with a $100 purchase. I colored in the cardigan with Stampin’ Blends and used the Stylish Shapes Dies for the sentiment banners and the white circle. I finished it off with Classic Matte Dots.

Card Recipe
Stamp Set: Forever Friendship
Cardstock: Basic White, Balmy Blue, Gorgeous Grape, So Saffron
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Stampin’ Blends: Balmy Blue, Gorgeous Grape, So Saffron

The Path of Wildlife for Joe

I needed a Thinking of You card for the husband of a friend of mine named Joe. He’s been going through cancer treatments and it seems like one issue after another with side effects. I wanted to cheer him up a bit to let him know people are praying for him. I don’t know him very well, so I’m hoping he appreciates wildlife like I do. This card uses the bear and shadow stamps from Wildlife Wonder and the tall grass from Wildflower Path. The Wildlife Wonder set is a DistINKtive set, which means it is designed to create multiple shades with just one stamp. I used Blending Brushes to create a soft background as well. The added texture from the Timber 3D Embossing Folder gives it a subtle background. I didn’t feel like any embellishments were needed.

Card Recipe
Stamp Sets: Wildlife Wonder, Wildflower Path
Cardstock: Basic White, Old Olive, Pool Party, Soft Suede
Ink: Old Olive, Pool Party, Soft Suede
Tools: Blending Brushes, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Timber 3D Embossing Folder

Glimmering Smiles

Introducing the 5 new 2022 – 2024 In Colors that will be available on May 3 for two years! All 5 colors are absolutely beautiful together! And Holy Smack, you guys! What an added bonus that the 5 new colors are all available in GLIMMER PAPER, too?!? I am in heaven!

This card today makes me so incredibly happy! The new Sending Smiles bundle includes a stamp set with a great variety of sentiments and coordinating dies. Here you also get a sneak peek of the In Color Decorative Dots, too. So cute! I couldn’t let the background get all the sparkle, so I added a little bit of Wink of Stella to the flower. Only one thing would make me happier…if I could find glittery nail polish to match!

Summer Sun and Shadows

Today’s card uses a little bit of new and a little bit of retiring. The new Sun Prints Designer Series Paper is right up my alley with all the gorgeous shades of blue. The Brushstroke Specialty Paper is beyond beautiful with the shimmer so I decided to use it for the top flower die layer and the strip that I embossed Happy Birthday on in white. Another new product is the Lovely Layers Vellum that I used for the background flower die. Retiring products are the Pierced Blooms dies and Polished Dots. The current catalog ends on May 2nd and the new one starts May 3rd. Just over a week to go!

Inspiring Earth Day

I used to do so many different kinds of crafting and one was using fabric paints and iron on transfers on clothing. My cousin April introduced it to me while I was visiting family in Florida. This was over 30 years ago, but I’ve never forgotten the sweet quote above on one of the designs. I loved it then and I love it now…quoting it often. It’s my hope that people treat every day like it’s Earth Day.

My cards today are for some special coworkers that focus on recycling efforts in my County. I have volunteered for activities in the past and can appreciate all the hard work it takes to make those events come together. I love what they do and I appreciate them!

Ombré Sea Life

Here’s a fun Birthday card using the Seas the Day bundle in the January – June 2022 mini catalog. It’s another one I will miss. I didn’t use it nearly enough, to be honest, and I’m kicking myself for it. You can still grab it before it’s gone…and tomorrow, Thursday, April 21, 2022 Stampin’ Up!® is offering Free Shipping for 24 hours (with a minimum $75 purchase)!

I love shaker cards and this one is just plain fun! An underwater scene that uses 2 retiring In Colors – Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider. I glued the jellyfish, starfish and yellowfish to the inside and glued the crab and seaweed on the outside. I filled the shaker with shimmery hexagon glitter I found at the local craft store. The top scene die is cut from the Ombré Glimmer paper, which is also retiring, so be sure to grab a pack of that, too! It comes in 4 fabulous colors.

Card Recipe
Stamp Sets: Seas the Day, Blossoms in Bloom (sentiment)
Cardstock: Basic White, Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy
Specialty Paper: Ombré Glimmer, Window Sheets
Ink: Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Coastal Cabana, Poppy Parade
Tools: Sea Dies, Sea Life Dies
