Hey You and What’s Your Type

Hey You and What's Your Type

Today I want to show you another yummy designer series paper – this one is Confetti Celebration with a fun color palette of Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay and Tangelo Twist.  This could definitely work for the man in your life.  And don’t forget – the Buy One Get One Free sale continues on all regular designer series papers.

  • We all like shiny, new toys, right?  So I hadn’t used my Top Note Die with my Big Shot in quite some time.  But it works so well for this layout.
  • You’ll want the new Hey You stamp set from Stampin’ Up! as a wonderful small, basic sentiment set that’s so usable.  It comes with Congrats and Thank You, too, and it’s just $10.95 for clear-mount.
  • You’re definitely going to see lots of cards made with the What’s Your Type photopolymer stamp set!  It’s fast becoming my go to stamp for little accents, and I just love what Stampin’ Up! has done with making it a letter set.  Check out pg. 161 of the Annual Catalog to see how this geometric set is also an alphabet set!  Anyway, for this card, I used the half circle image to stamp a border along the bottom of my card.
  • I’ve added a Candy Dot Brad with Basic Gray Candy Dot, as well as some Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine as accents.  Did you know that Stampin’ Up! now carries 17 different colors in their Baker’s Twine, with 2 different thicknesses?  That’s a lot of choices!

Zoo Babies and Flower Pot Designer Paper

Zoo Babies and Flowerpot DSP

It’s funny how an older stamp set can look so fresh and new when paired with a brand new package of designer series paper.  And the color scheme becomes so easy – Night of Navy, Tangelo Twist, Crushed Curry, Lost Lagoon and Garden Green.  In this card, I’ve combined Zoo Babies stamp set and Flower Pot Designer Series Paper by Stampin’ Up!

  • You’ll find lining up all of the zoo babies easier if you cut out your 3-1/8″ Circle first using the Big Shot and Circle Framelits.  That way, you can get a nice  fit.
  • The Stampin’ Up! Fringe Scissors are perfect for making grass!
  • While Stampin’ Up! doesn’t carry In Color buttons, I found that a Calypso Coral Button from the Subtles Button Pack matched perfectly.  A bit of White Baker’s Twine is tied through the center.
  • Did you notice the Crushed Curry Candy Dot used for the elephant’s eye?  Boy, those things come in handy!

World of Dreams

World of Dreams

This card really shows off the beautiful All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack – perfect designer paper for card makers since it’s 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ and just $6.95 for 48 sheets!  I’ve made a card HERE using the same All Abloom paper but a different sheet from the stack.

  • This pretty silhouette image comes from World of Dreams stamp set.  This stamp set comes with a couple of terrific sentiments, but they took up too much space on my tag.  So I turned to what is sure to be everyone’s “go to” sentiment stamp set this year – And Many More.  There are 23 different sentiments all in this perfect set for $26.95 in clear.  And I love the “happy together” with the two birds on their nest – perfect for an anniversary card.
  • I believe this is my first card using the yummy new 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon.  Stampin’ Up! added so many new ribbons this year, and this is my very favorite.  It’s so nice and soft and comes in 12 different colors.  Would you like to receive a little of every color?  Then my Ribbon Share is for you!  You’ll get 2 yds. of all 12 colors for just $17.25.  While you’re at it, pick up a share of the new Thick Baker’s Twine (shown here in Strawberry Slush) in all of the 2013-15 In Colors – 2 yds. each of 5 colors plus 3 yds of each of the 7 new colors of the regular Baker’s Twine, all for just $6.25.  Click HERE to read more about my 2014-15 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog Shares and order yours today!
  • Did anyone catch my mistake on this card?  I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch for the Daffodil Delight cardstock between the two designer papers, and when I went to look up the item code for that particular product, I realized that it had retired!  I’ll have to find another favorite border punch to use in the future, but I couldn’t “waste” the opportunity to share my card with you!

  • A couple of sweet little Rhinestones finish off the hearts for this quick card.  I hope you liked seeing these two new stamp sets paired together!

Sea Street and Maritime Designer Paper

Sea Street

Stampin’ Up! is all about coordination – and they’ve hit a home run with the new Sea Street stamp set, coupled with the Maritime Designer Series Paper!  The color scheme is fresh with the addition of Coastal Cabana to the traditional Night of Navy and Real Red.  It really adds something special!

  • Did you notice the shimmery water look of the one background piece?  It’s Silver Foil Paper and it works perfectly with this card, although a bit hard to photograph!
  • The sentiment comes from Lots of Thanks stamp set.  It’s a stretch but I was thinking of A Thousand Leagues Under the Sea – I can hear you groaning now!
  • One of the most versatile accessories in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog is the Basic Metal Buttons.  They’re super flat so they don’t add bulk to your card, and they go with just about everything.  Here I’ve run a bit of Real Red Taffeta Ribbon through the center and secured it with a Glue Dot.
  • All the pretty patterns in the Maritime Designer Series Paper make it easy to choose different pieces for the banners and background.

 

Sea Street closeup

Do you love Stampin’ Up! designer papers as much as I do?  Why not purchase a Designer Series Paper Share for just $25.95.  It will include:

And if that wasn’t enough, you’ll also receive 1 6″ x 6″ of the new Kraft Cardstock, 1 6″ x 6″ of the new Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, 1 6″ x 6″ of the new Gold Glimmer Paper, 1 6″ x 6″ of the new Silver Glimmer Paper, 1 6″ x 6″ of the new Natural Filter Paper and 1 Natural Filter Paper Circle.

Train Traveler

Traveler train

Here’s another card using the Traveler stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  You may have missed my previous post using Traveler – find it HERE.

I saw a card in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog using only neutrals, and I really liked it.  I’m usually all about color, but I wanted to introduce you to a few new products.

  • The first new product is Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper.  This ultra lightweight paper has a very vintage feel.  You’ll receive 24 12″x12″ sheets, 4 each of 6 double-sided designs, for just $12.95.
  • The second new product is the Kraft Cardstock.  You might have missed this little gem in the catalog – it’s on pg. 192 and doesn’t look like much, but I guarantee you’re going to love this cardstock – heavier than our regular cardstock with a beautifully natural kraft color.  There are 12 12″x12″ sheets to a package for just $5.95.
  • The third new product is the Zig Zag Embossing Folder.  It feels decidedly masculine on the Kraft Cardstock and I can see it’s going to be a really useful folder to have on hand.
  • I’ve used the Says It All stamp set for the happy birthday greeting stamped in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder and the Heat Tool.
  • I added a couple of metallic elements – the Gold Metallic Twine, a circle punched from the Gold Foil Paper and the addition of a gold brad from the Antique Brads collection.

Traveler and Tuesday Tidbits

Traveler

Today I’m excited to show you the new All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack from Stampin’ Up!  This is such a versatile paper – lots of color and pattern choices, and it comes in a 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ paper stack just right for card makers.

And don’t forget to read all the way through my post to get all the latest news, specials and deadlines!

  • You know me – I love using our pretty designer paper and making it easy to come up with a color scheme!  All Abloom has all of the following colors:  Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush – whew!
  • You’ll find this vintage suitcase as part of the Traveler stamp set, brand new to the 2014-15 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  I’ve stamped it in Mossy Meadow, one of the new 2014-16 In Colors, and cut it out using the Big Shot and Circle Framelits.
  • This beautiful sentiment is from the stamp set called Trust God.  I thought this card would be perfect for someone going out on a mission trip or heading off to college or even a change of jobs.
  • To scrunch up the Mossy Meadow Ribbon, simply begin by using a line of our new Fast Fuse Adhesive where you want the ribbon to be.  Hand pleat it and stick it into the adhesive on the card.  The new Fast Fuse will keep it in place!  It’s stronger than SNAIL Adhesive but a little less strong than Sticky Strip and a little easier to use since it rolls out like SNAIL.
  • I punched out a piece of Pistachio Pudding cardstock with my Small Oval Punch, snipped it off and added a Pink Pirouette Button from the Subtles Button Pack to the bottom left corner.  A piece of Linen Thread makes a nice accent through the button.

Embellished Events and Something to Say

Embellished Events and Something to Say

Once again, I’ve turned to my Color Coach for help on today’s card, this time the new 2014-16 In Color Cards.  I want to continue showing you these gorgeous new colors, but I also want to show you that they’re going to coordinate beautifully with all of your existing colors.

  • I looked up Blackberry Bliss and my Color Coach showed me that it matched nicely with Smoky Slate and Melon Mambo.  Then I added just a bit of Hello Honey.
  • I paired an old and a new stamp set together for this birthday card – Embellished Events for the cake image and Something to Say, a brand new sentiment set, for the saying.  The cake is markered direct to the rubber stamp, and I’ve added some Dazzling Details to the flames and a row of Rhinestones to the bottom of the cake plate.  Another Rhinestone decorates the center of the flower created with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.
  • Framelits come in so handy, this time to make a quick scallop edge to the Blackberry Bliss cardstock with the Large Scallop Edgelit.
  • You’re going to fall in love with using the new In Color Satin Ribbon!  The colors are beautiful, and it ties so nicely!  Why not join the Ribbon Share and receive 2 yds. each of all 5 of the new In Color ribbons, plus many more!  Check out my Ribbon Share HERE.

Here’s what one happy customer says about my Ribbon Shares:

“I got the package of ribbons from the shares in today’s mail.  This may have changed my mind about the new in colors! They are prettier in person than in the catalog or even on sample cards I have seen.  Thanks for all that it takes to make a share possible. I can’t imagine measuring, cutting, and wrapping that much ribbon!”
