Wishing you a Delightful Birthday!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and sweet birthday card using three different stamp sets! Sometimes card and craft making can be a little like baking, you add a little bit of this stamp set, a little bit of that stamp set, and then top if off with a fun stamp set! Now you have your own recipe for a super cute card! Lol I will also show you a little trick to create a custom size label with the Stitched Nested Labels!

Your base layer for this card is this design from the Mosaic Mood DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front you will need:

1. Enough Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon to tie into a bow around the base layer DSP.

2. Three of the small butterflies from Butterfly Gala, stamp the solid background butterfly in Blushing Bride ink on Whisper White cardstock, stamp the outline and body in Terracotta ink, and then punch out with the Butterfly Duet Punch.

3. Stamp the sentiment in Terracotta Tile ink on Whisper White cardstock, cut out with the third largest Stitched Nested Label (see below for tip on custom cut down) and then cut out a layering piece in Blushing Bride cardstock with the second largest Stitched Nested Label.

4. To create a “custom” label, simply adjust the size by lining up the holes on the side, they align easily, and then use a piece of tape or sticky note to keep it in place. I cut out the Blushing Bride layer and then used the sentiment as a guide as to where is should be cut down to:

To assemble the card front, tie the ribbon into a bow, adhere the layered sentiment with dimensionals, adhere one of the butterflies to the sentiment and the other two with mini dimensionals to the DSP:

This completed piece is adhered to a Garden Green cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”. I decided to use three of the small Terracotta Tile Faceted Dots on the layered sentiment piece:

The inside sentiment is on Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamped in Garden Green ink, and adhere a ¾” x 4” piece of cardstock along the bottom, the same that you used on the front:

So, what do you think about my “recipe” to make this card?? While having a stamp set with coordinating DSP is fun and easy, change things up by using different stamp sets with the DSP!!

Mix it up Monday!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and easy card to make mixing old and new products! By old, I mean using a trusty stamp set that has carried over into the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. I chose to pair the Colorful Seasons stamp set with a piece of the Mosaic Mood DSP to create this fun card! Terracotta Tile is a beautiful color and I thought it would be perfect for the flowers on this card.

The base layer is this design from the Mosaic Mood DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

You will only need a few supplies for the card front, a 6 ¼” piece of the Terracotta Tile Scalloped Linen Ribbon, use the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out of Terracotta Tile cardstock, and on Whisper White cardstock, stamp the tree limb in Early Espresso ink and the flowers in Terracotta Tile ink, cut out with the third largest Layering Circle Die and then stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso ink:

Adhere the ribbon across the middle of the DSP base layer, adhere the layer circles together, and then adhere the circle piece over the ribbon with dimensionals:

This is then adhered to a Terracotta Tile cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”. I decided to add three of the copper Designer Elements on the ribbon just to add a little something to the card:

The inside is on Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso ink, the flowers are stamped in Terracotta Tile ink and the stamen are stamped in Early Espresso ink:

This is such a simple card layout, you can use any DSP and any stamp set! Sometimes I forget about the “tried and true carry over” stamps that can easily be combined with the new products! It’s also great to have a simple layout to go to for when you are limited on time!

Create a fun card with the Praiseworthy Prose Bundle!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which feature’s the new Praiseworthy Prose Bundle! As sad as I was when SU! retired the Letters for You stamp set and the Large Letter Framelits, I was so excited to see the new Hand Letter Prose Dies!! What is so great about these new dies, is that they are smaller and you can fit more letters on the front of your card! So, when you pair the Praiseworthy Prose stamp set with the dies, you really do have a variety of cards that can be made with this bundle!! After the card tutorial, I will share a few pictures about the dies so you can see for yourself how these are different.

The base layer for this card is this design from Mosaic Mood DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front, I used the letters to cut out the sentiment in Gold Foil and Mint Macaron cardstock, which I used my fine tip glue pen to adhere the Mint Macaron cardstock to the back of the Gold Foil letter. The sentiment is stamped in Soft Sued ink (you can either use a stampin’ write marker or mask the lines and stamp with your ink pad) on a ½” x 3” piece of Very Vanilla cardstock (I always keep the strips of VV and WW cardstock when I am cutting for the inside of a card), stamping each line one at a time and I just used my snips to trim the ends at an angle. I cut three strips of Soft Suede cardstock at 5/8” x 3 1/8” to layer under the sentiments, again using my snips to trim the ends at an angle. Finally, you will need enough Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon to tie into a bow around the DSP base layer:

To assemble the card front, I adhered the die cut letters across the middle of the DSP with my fine tip glue pen, tied the ribbon around the lower part of the DSP into a bow, adhered the sentiments with dimensionals, and then adhered this to the Soft Suede cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The inside sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays is on Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 4” X 5 ¼”, stamped in Soft Suede ink, and the background stamp from Praiseworthy Prose is stamped in Mint Macaron ink:

Isn’t this bundle just awesome?? I almost didn’t get the stamp set, but then I thought about it and decided to get the bundle after all because they have some great sentiments! Now, I took some additional pictures of the dies so that if you have been considering these, maybe it might help you. 

The first picture is of all the dies on a 8” x 7” Magnetic Card (from Stamp-n-Storage), so you can see that the 43 dies fit on this:

The second picture is of the Mint Macaron cardstock that I used to die cut the letters and if you notice, there is no “outline” left on the cardstock from the dies. The dies from Large Letters Framelits always left the “outline” impression on the cardstock when die-cutting:

The last picture is of a few of the dies, showing how big these dies really are:

So, you can fit more letters for a bigger saying or even a couple of words on your card front, they are very easy to use, and a little bit more affordable! I definitely recommend these dies!!

Delightful Day and Daisy Lane card

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun birthday card featuring the Delightful Day and Daisy Lane stamp set! I just love the Mosaic Mood DSP and when I decided I wanted to create a card with this design from the it, so I set out to try and find a new color combo! Would you have ever thought to combine Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, and Basic Gray? Me neither!!

The base layer is this design from the DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front, you will stamp the big daisy stamp from Daisy Lane four times in Versamark ink, heat emboss with Clear Emboss Powder, and punch out with the Daisy Punch, cut a 5 ¼” piece of Whisper White Flax Ribbon, two of the Perennial Essence Floral Centers, stamp the sentiment from Delightful Day in Melon Mambo ink on Whisper White cardstock, punch out the sentiment with the Tailored Tag Punch, and then punch out another piece in Basic Gray cardstock to layer under the sentiment:

I used liquid glue to adhere the daisy layers together, adhered the flower center, and then adhered the layering cardstock behind the sentiment, slightly to the left:

The base layer is adhered to a Basic Gray card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”, and the flax ribbon is adhered across the middle with Tear & Tape:

I used my bone folder to the flower petals to curl them a little before adhering them to the base layer and then adhered the sentiment:

After I assembled the card front, I thought it needed some embellishment, so I used one of the big and two of the small Clear Epoxy Droplets:

The inside sentiment is on a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Whisper White cardstock and I used sponge daubers to ink the daisy and sentiment in Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo inks:

What a fun and cheery card to make! Did you know that the Delightful Day stamp set has a coordinating punch that you can purchase as a bundle? You can make coordinating tags in three different sizes with the Delightful Tag Topper, how fun is that??

Life is beautiful with Mosaic Mood

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which features the Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper combined with the Colorful Seasons and Butterfly Wishes stamp sets! I received this DSP at OnStage in April from Prize Patrol (Free DSP? Yes, please!!) and I will admit that this design is not what I would typically gravitate to (you can find the Mosaic Mood Suite on page 119 in the 2019-2020 AC), however, this really is beautiful DSP that has shiny accents on one side. I chose to pair this with the new Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon to accent and this ribbon is very easy to use. 

For my base layer, I chose this design from the DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

The additional pieces for the card front is a piece of textile ribbon long enough to wrap around just the front of the DSP (about 7 ½”), the sentiment stamped in Terracotta Tile ink on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with the 3rdlargest Stitched Nested Labels Dies, and then the two butterflies stamped in Terracotta Tile ink and cut out with the Butterfly Duet Punch:

Now, the butterfly stamps that coordinate with the Butterfly Duet Punch are two separate cling (red rubber) stamps. So, you can either stamp them however you want on the cardstock and then punch out, or you can create a template with the punch, layer this on top of your cardstock using your Stamparatus, align the stamps in the punched-out spots, lift the stamps with the Stamparatus plate, ink, stamp the images, and then punch out:

To assemble the card front, wrap and adhere the ribbon around the middle of the DSP, adhere the stamped sentiment on top, adhere the butterflies with mini dimensionals, and then I used Gold Metallic Pearls in the corners of the stamped sentiment piece:

This is then adhered to a Terracotta Tile cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Terracotta Tile ink and the butterflies in Mint Macaron ink:

Wasn’t this an easy and awesome card to make? This just goes to show you that you can like only the DSP from a suite, but totally make it your own! What do you think of Terracotta Tile as one of the new 2019-2021 In Colors?One reason I chose the Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon is because it also coordinates with the Garden Lane DSP, so now I will get even more use out of this ribbon! Food for thought when you are trying to pick out ribbon…
