Love in a different color

LOVE

Here’s a stamp set you haven’t seen in the new Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog called Snuggles & Smooches.  That’s because it was added to the Stampin’ Up! offerings in December as a new photopolymer release.  Tap on the photo of this great stamp set below to view all of the images.  This set has so many elements and so many possibilities.  Here I’ve used 3 stamps from the 12-stamp set – the “love” and the two hearts.

  • How do you feel about a non-traditional color scheme for Valentine’s Day?  I was getting a bit tired with working with reds and pinks, so I thought I’d give this a try – Pear Pizzazz, Tempting Turquoise and Rich Razzleberry.
  • The Pear Pizzazz background banner is run through the Big Shot using the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder, new to the 2014-15 Annual Catalog back in July.   So pretty!
  • The large heart from the Snuggles & Smooches stamp set coordinates with the Sweetheart Punch for a quick punched image. I used my Paper Snips to snip out the small heart by hand.
  • I added a Tempting Turquoise Candy Dot from the Brights Collection.

And as promised, here are the results of the stamp giveaway that I announced HERE.  I used a random name generator, plugged in the names of the people who left comments, and our winner is . . .

Hi There and Bloom for You

hello

Don’t you sometimes just want to reconnect with somebody you’ve been out of touch with?  Or just let someone know you’re thinking about them?  Here’s the perfect card to say “hello” using Stampin’ Up!’s Hi There stamp set.  And the flower comes from a single stamp called Bloom For You stamped in Strawberry Slush ink and punched out with the coordinating Fun Flower punch.

  • The extra layer of white cardstock on the front allows me to tuck the end of the Bermuda Bay Striped Ribbon.
  • The Circle Framelits are perfect for any size circle.  I’ve cut out this gorgeous gold stripe print from the Gold Soiree Specialty DSP pack from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.
  • I used the star clip from the Basic Hodgepodge Clips assortment, pinned it behind the white “hello” banner, then tied on a piece of Strawberry Slush Thick Baker’s Twine.  Hello is stamped with a Gold Encore Pad.
  • I added a Bermuda Bay Candy Dot to the center of the flower – love those things!

Hey, Valentine!

Hey Valentine

You’re going to love working with the sweet images in the new Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Hey, Valentine.  And today I’m also showing you two separate gifts you can receive during the biggest sale event of the year – Sale-A-Bration.  With each $50 you spend from now until the end of March, choose among fabulous free gifts in the new Sale-A-Bration brochure.  The two featured in this card are the Best Year Ever Designer Paper and the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack.  I used some of the three ribbons in the accessory pack, but you’ll also receive coordinating buttons.

A circle theme is a great one when there’s fish and bubbles involved!  The background of the card is Coastal Cabana cardstock run through the Big Shot using the Large Polka Dot embossing folder.  The designer paper has a circle pattern, and I even rounded the corners of the main image using the Envelope Punch Board.  Yep, best corner rounder ever – two for one use on this great tool!

Stampin’ Write Markers were used to color in this cute image.  Color scheme in the designer paper is Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Whisper White.  Don’t forget to use StazOn Black Ink to stamp your image when you want to do some coloring!

Be Mine, Valentine

Be Mine

I love a classic red, black and white look!  And that’s why I love the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack that’s in the new Stampin’ Up! 2015 Occasions Catalog.  There’s some Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe mixed in, too.  And true to form, Stampin’ Up! has designed the prints to coordinate with each other beautifully.

My other most favorite new-catalog product is the Sheltering Tree stamp set.  You’re going to get such a bang for your buck with this versatile stamp set!  It’s great for every season, and I even created a Valentine tree (with the help of the tiny hearts in You Plus Me stamp set).

I also used the “Be Mine” stamp from You Plus Me inside of a Real Red cardstock punch from Sweetheart Punch.

AND if you purchase the You Plus Me stamp set and Stacked With Love DSP as a bundle, you’ll save 15%!

All that glitters IS gold

Fabulous Four and Star Framelit with washi tape

I just love all of the gold that Stampin’ Up! has added over this past year!  And like all Stampin’ Up! products, there’s also the beautiful coordination factor that’s a big wow!  I also created another card using our gold products – you can find it here.

I began this card with the idea of using Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape and the Stars Framelits and Big Shot to create a focal point image.  I used one of the Stars Framelits and traced around it on Very Vanilla Cardstock.  Then I filled in the space with the Washi Tape, set the Star Framelit back over the pen lines and ran it through the Big Shot to cut it out.  Here’s a look at what I’m describing:

Star with washi tape

Next I wanted to create a frame around the star using the Gold Foil Sheets.  I used two of the Stars Framelits – the same one with which I cut out the Washi Tape star and also the size below it.  I placed the smaller one inside the larger one, laid them on the Gold Foil Sheet and ran it through the Big Shot.  Here’s a photo of the set up:

Star Framelit with Big Shot

And here’s the card closeup:

Fabulous Four with washi tape white

I added Gold Baker’s Twine and one of the sentiment from Fabulous Four stamp set stamped with an Encore Gold  stamp pad.  I really wanted the star to stick out off of the card, but that posed a problem for putting it in an envelope.  But no fear – with the Envelope Punch Board, you’re able to create any size envelope you choose!  So I made my envelope 6″ x 4-3/4″ and it slipped right in.

But why stop there?  If I’m creating a custom envelope, I might as well dress it up a bit, right?  So I made an additional envelope base then cut across the bottom and sides to create a liner.

measuring envelope for liner

Then I placed my rows of Washi Tape all along the part of the envelope that would fit down inside the outer envelope.  Once on, I trimmed down the Washi Tape and also trimmed the liner so it would slide down inside the envelope base.

I think this special card will be for my husband’s uncle who is turning 80 next weekend.  He and his wife are also celebrating 60 years of marriage!  Gold will be perfect!

Timeless Talk and What’s Your Type

Timeless Talk and What's Your Type2

 

Oh how I love the pretty color combination in Stampin’ Up!’s Gold Soiree Specialty Designer PaperCalypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Garden Green, with Gold.   I have to admit, I wasn’t much of a Garden Green fan, but Stampin’ Up! has used it in two different designer papers this year (the other one is Flower Pot Designer Paper), and the colors that they’ve put it with make it just the perfect green.

  • The stamped images come from Timeless Talk.  I’ve stamped the bicycle in Garden Green Ink and the sentiment in Gold Ink.  A little flower from Boho Blossoms Punch with a Garden Green Candy Dot are cute accents for the hub of the wheel.
  • Two strips of Gold Soiree Specialty Paper accent the left side of the main image.  To make the Calypso Coral scalloped edge, just punch three 1″ circles and adhere them at the half-way point along the back side of the designer paper.
  • I love that we now have Baker’s Twine in both gold and silver – it’s a great accent to the Gold Soiree paper!
  • I pulled out my What’s Your Type stamp set to create the border of circles stamped tone-on-tone down the left side.  This brand new photopolymer stamp set is going to have so many uses!  Check out another card I’ve made using What’s Your Type HERE.

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
