Elegant and quick note cards


Today is a "two for one" special on seeing some more things to do with Stampin' Up! Note Cards.  I wanted to show both of these to you today because both use embossing folders along with our Core'dinations Cardstock

  • To create the distressed look, just run the Summer Starfruit Core'dinations Cardstock through the Big Shot using the new embossing folder from the Holiday Catalog called Pretty Print.  Then lightly sand with the Stampin' Sanding Block.  The sanding block will take some of the color off the cardstock and leave a beautiful two-toned effect.
  • Stamps are from Chalk Talk stamp set, stamped in Gumball Green and Midnight Muse.  There's a coordinating Chalk Talk Framelit to cut out the base of the main image, and I've used an XL Oval Punch for the sentimentl.
  • BUNDLE AND SAVE!  Buy the Chalk Talk stamp set and coordinating Chalk Talk Framelits and save 15%!
  • Add a couple of Silver Mini Brads in the corners of the tag for an extra little somethin'.

Million Thanks

Here, I've turned the Note Card on its side to create a simply elegant thank you note. 

  • This card uses the new-ish embossing folder (new in the Annual Catalog in July) called Beautifully Baroque.  Again, to get that distressed two-toned look, simply run the Cherry Cobbler Core'dinations cardstock through the Big Shot with the embossing folder, then lightly sand with the Sanding Block.
  • Love the beautiful font of the Million & One stamp set – you'll receive two images in this great set.
  • A pretty little flower accent is made using the Boho Blossoms Punch and a Black Candy Dot from the Neutrals Collection.

Wisteria Thank You

Wisteria Thank You

With Stampin' Up!'s designer series paper sale going on in July, I thought I'd show you a card using one of the prettiest papers on sale – Afternoon Picnic Designer Series Paper.  I love the colors in this rich, vintage paper – Basic Gray, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla and Wisteria Wonder!  Wow – lots of colors to work with!

  • Love & Sympathy stamp set is the perfect little set to show someone you're thinking about them.  I chose to use just the flower motif and add instead a sentiment from Lots of Thanks to change it up a bit and show you something new.
  • The designer paper is bordered with a strip of Summer Starfruit cardstock punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  I also added some Pear Pizzazz 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon – yummy!
  • The Honeycomb Embossing Folder is a must have this season – it looks great with everything!

Daring Adventure

Here's a gorgeous card from friend and fellow stamper, Phyl Lyons.  The sentiment comes from Daring Adventure stamp set and it looks great using lots of different Stampin' Write Markers direct to the rubber stamp.  The color combo is gorgeous – Sahara Sand, Melon Mambo, Peach Parfait, Marina Mist and Pear Pizzazz.  Card base uses Houndstooth Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Now to figure out where the pretty butterfly came from – can anyone help?  Leave me a message by clicking "comment" below if you know what stamp set it's from!
