Amazing

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is another feature of the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper! I’ve had so much fun playing and creating with this particular design this week and today’s card has some bling! I’m also using two products that carried over from the 2018 Sale-A-Bration catalog, the Celebrate You Thinlit Dies and the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

To make this card, start with Mossy Meadow cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼” for the card base:

The base layer is the bigger flower element from this DSP design, fussy cut the middle out, round the corners with the Trio Punch, and layered underneath is a piece of Petal Pink cardstock, cut at 3” x 4 ¼”, and embossed with the Basket Weave DTIEF:

The embossed cardstock is adhered under the DSP and I used a piece of Champagne Foil with the Amazing Thinlit, which is adhered on top of the embossed cardstock:

I adhered a piece of Petal Pink Ribbon (from the Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack) and a piece of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to the back. This piece is then adhered with dimensionals to the card base and added some Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels for some additional bling to the center of the flower:

The inside sentiment from Special Celebrations is on a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” of Very Vanilla cardstock stamped in Mossy Meadow. The small flowers are made from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits in Petal Pink cardstock:

This is another quick and easy card, so don’t be hesitant to play around with this Designer Series Paper! This works great with some of the awesome sentiment stamps from Stampin’ Up!

Celebrate

Hello and welcome to today’s card, featuring the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and the Celebrate You Thinlits! If you missed these thinlits during Sale-A-Bration, well, they are available for purchase in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog! If you look closely, you will see that the word Celebrate is a triple layer, which I incorporated the colors of the cardstock and DSP to layer with the Gold Glimmer Paper.

The card base is Early Espresso cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_20b1

The next two layers are from the same sheet of DSP, the base layer is cut at 3 ¾” x 5”, and the next layer is cut at 3” x 4 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_20b4

The front of the card base is embossed with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder:

fullsizeoutput_20c0

Celebrate is cut out of Early Espresso and Petal Pink cardstocks and Gold Glimmer Paper from the Celebrate You Thinlit Dies:

fullsizeoutput_20b7

Using the Fine Tip Glue Pen, first adhere the Petal Pink cardstock to the Early Espresso cardstock and then adhere the Gold Glimmer Paper on top. I adhered them slightly off so the layers underneath would peek out:

fullsizeoutput_20bafullsizeoutput_20bd

The two pieces of DSP are layered and then adhered together and then adhered to the card base:

fullsizeoutput_20c3

I used Glue Dots to adhere Celebrate across the DSP and then placed some Gold Metallic Pearls around for some added bling:

fullsizeoutput_20c6

The inside sentiment is from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark in and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. The background stamp from this set is stamped in Petal Pink ink along the bottom:

fullsizeoutput_20c9fullsizeoutput_20cc

This is my first time using the Subtle Embossing Folder and this is perfect if you want some added texture to your cardstock! Another alternative, instead of using the thinlits, stamp and heat emboss a sentiment on Vellum cardstock. If you missed it, this year we have Rose Glimmer Paper and Rose Metallic Thread that coordinates with this paper, so that is on my next order for sure!!

Celebrate You

Hello and welcome to part 4 of this week’s Sale-A-Bration spotlight on stamp sets! Today I will be featuring the Amazing You stamp set with the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies. You can earn the Amazing You stamp set with a qualifying $50.00 order or the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies with a qualifying $100.00 order, however, the Celebrate You Thinlits will be carried over into the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog for purchase.

When making these fun cards, I decided to make two cards with the 2016-2018 In Colors that will be retiring on May 31st, one soft and subtle and one bright and cheerful! The color pallet I used for the first card is Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum, and Perfect Plum. The color pallet I used for the second card is Daffodil Delight, Emerald Envy, and Dapper Denim.

The card base is Sweet Sugarplum/Daffodil Delight cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”. The base layer is Perfect Plum/Dapper Denim cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. The second layer is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 3 ½” x 4 ¾”.

On the Whisper White cardstock, first use your Embossing Buddy across the paper, using the “burst” stamp with Versamark ink, stamp along the bottom and left side, then sprinkle White Embossing Powder across the stamped images, and set with the Heat Tool. Using a Sponge Dauber, color the embossed image with the colors in a circular motion, you can use a tissue or paper towel to wipe the ink off the embossing to make it white again and stand out.

For one card, I used a piece of Champagne Foil and Blushing Bride cardstock to cut out the Celebrate. For the other card, I used Gold Foil and Emerald Envy cardstock to cut out the Celebrate, gluing them together slightly off to make the cardstock look like a shadow. I cut Mini Dimensionals in half and placed them along the back of the Celebrate and then placed on the Whisper White cardstock. The “you” stamp from this set is stamped in either Sweet Sugarplum or Dapper Denim inks.

The base layer is embossed with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, which I took the coordinating ink pad and dragged across to ink up the folder before embossing (Perfect Plum or Dapper Denim).

To put the card together, adhere the base layer to the card base, use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the second layer, and then add some coordinating Enamel Shapes.

Celebrate You

For this weeks final card featuring the Amazing You stamp set and Celebrate You Thinlits Dies, I wanted to show you how to “up-cycle” leftovers from using the thinlits. Last month I made a card using the celebrate thinlit, which you can see here, and I decided that I was going to keep the bits that were left rather than just throwing them away.

The card base is in Basic Gray, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”, the base layer is from the Bubbles & Fizz DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and the Silver Foil Sheet is cut at 1” x 4”. Using scrap pieces of Whisper White card stock, stamp the “let’s” and “you” in Basic Gray ink and cut out by hand to the desired size.

To put this card together, adhere the base layer to the card base, cut a piece of Basic Gray Shimmer Ribbon long enough to go around the front of the card, towards the bottom, and then tie in a knot. Find the position that you want the Silver Foil celebrate on the front, then use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere to the base layer, and then adhere the little bits in the C, L, and E’s. The “let’s” and “you” are popped up using Mini Dimensionals and added some bling with some Silver Foil Metallic Enamel Shapes.

This was such a quick and easy card to make and you get to use some of those leftover scraps! Let me know what you think!

Amazing you

This weeks cards will be featuring the Amazing You stamp set and the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies. At first, I had no idea how I wanted to create this card so I got out the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack and this is what I was able to create!

The card base is in Early Espresso card stock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”, the base layer is in the Wood Textures DSP, cut at 4” x 4 ½”, and then the next layer is in Whisper White card stock, cut at 3 ½” x 3 ½”.

Using the flower stamp from the Amazing You stamp set, ink up with Memento ink, and then stamp the image in each corner. The flower was colored in with the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends, using the dark around the edges and then blending with the light. On a scrap piece of Gold Foil, cut out the amazing thinlit with the big shot. Before I put the card together, the flowers were missing something…so I used some Wink of Stella all around the flower and then placed a Gold Faceted Gem in the middle. Here’s a close up:

fullsizeoutput_14b4

The card is then put together by adhering the Wood Texture layer to the card base, positioning towards the top of the card, then adhering the Whisper White layer on top of the base layer, and the amazing is adhered in the middle with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. To tie in the Daffodil Delight, wrap a piece of Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon around the bottom and tie in a bow.

I just love how this turned out and you can easily change it up by using a different color for the flowers and ribbon, what do you think?

You can earn the Amazing You stamp set and the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies FREE thru March 31st with a qualifying order! Please contact me if you have any questions about the products used on this or any other project. I hope you enjoyed this card and thanks for stopping by!

Amazing You-quick and easy

This card was created with the quick and easy idea in mind, so that if you wanted to make several of these you to have on hand you could.

I started with the card base in Powder Pink cut at 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”. The base layer is from the Painted with Love Specialty DSP cut at 4” x 5 ¼” and I chose a piece that did not have the gold foil in the design because I knew I wanted to incorporate some silver and gray.  The circle is in Whisper White cardstock using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits, stamping the “let’s” and “you” in Melon Mambo ink. I absolutely love the coordinating Celebrate You Thinlits Dies and cut the “celebrate” in Silver Foil, adhering part to the Whisper White Stitched Circle using the Fine Tip Glue Pen. Since I was using a piece of the Basic Gray Shimmer Ribbon across the middle of the DSP base, I wanted these pieces to pop up, so I used some Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the Stitched Circle and then cut one of the dimensionals in half and applied them to the back of the C and the L, then adhered to the base layer. I added some Basic Rhinestone Jewels, three in the medium and two in the large sizes, coloring the large jewels in the Dark Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends marker.
