Forever Lovely-new look with new Designer Series Paper!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which pairs the Forever Lovely stamp set from the Annual Catalog with the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper from the new 2020 Mini Catalog! Have you ever looked at a designer series paper design and thought, “That looks like very similar to a stamp set”? One of the designs from the Best Dress 6” x 6” DSP did just that with the Forever Lovely stamp set! So what better way to pair products together and give them a new look? 

For this card, I used this design from the designer series paper. First cut a ¾” strip on one side, turn 90 degrees, and then cut at 4”, which will give you three pieces for this card, ¾” x 6”, 4” x 5 ¼”, and 2” x 5 ¼”. The base layer is the 4” x 5 ¼” piece of DSP:

For the card front, you will need:

1. On Whisper White cardstock, stamp the flower in Grapefruit Grove ink, cut out with the coordinating die, and place a 3mm Pearl Basic Jewel in the middle of each.

2. Use the large Stitched Label Die to cut out of Champagne Foil Sheet.

3. Use the multi flower die from Lovely Flowers to cut out of Purple Posy cardstock, use the 5mm Pearl Basic Jewel on the two larger flowers, and the 4mm Pearl Basic Jewel on the two smaller flowers.

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

5. From Mint Macaron cardstock, use the Lovely Flowers leaf dies to cut out two of the small leaf and four of the larger leaf.

To assemble, use glue dots to adhere the small Purple Posy flowers in opposite corners, layer the three large flowers in the middle with the two bottom adhered to the foil sheet and one adhered with dimensionals, and place some adhesive on the back of the foil sheet to layer the leaves in opposite corners:

This completed piece is adhered to the DSP base layer with dimensionals and the ribbon is tied into a bow along the bottom:

This completed piece is adhered to a Mint Macaron cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Mint Macaron ink, and adhere the ¾” strip of DSP along the bottom, trimming off the excess:

Don’t you love it when you can coordinate new products with something you already have?? I love the pop of color with the Grapefruit Grove flowers and creating this soft color combo! Since this DSP is 6” x 6”, the remaining 2” x 5 ¼” can be used to adhere to your envelope flap (the die from Beautiful Layers works perfectly) or you can use it for another card! Since I don’t want to hold onto any scraps, this will be applied to the envelope flap!

Incredible Like You with Nature’s Poem DSP

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a quick and easy alternative card with the Incredible Like You stamp set, which coordinate with the Incredible Like You Project Kit. The kit and stamp set can be found on page 21 in the Occasions Catalog and the kit creates 16 beautiful cards, has 16 envelopes, and a gorgeous storage envelope! So, you’ve created all the cards and you are now left with the stamp set…now what? Keep on creating! Lol I really wanted to make a card with Tranquil Tide, need to give the 2017-2019 InColors some love before they retire, so I chose Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam to color coordinate to give this card a soft and subtle look.

The base layer is this design from the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the rest of the card front, you will need a Pearlized Doily, enough Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon to tie into a bow around the DSP, and a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock to stamp the sentiment in Tranquil Tide ink and the flowers in Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam ink, punching out with the Tailored Tag Punch:

You will tie the ribbon around the DSP into a bow or if you are like me, adhere enough ribbon to go around the front and then glue dot the bow on, and then use some Snail around the middle of the doily to adhere on top of the ribbon and DSP. I adhered the sentiment on top of the doily and then added three of the largest Pearl Basic Jewels:

This is then adhered to the card base, which is Tranquil Tide cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, cut a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Tranquil Tide ink, and the use the three-dot stamp to stamp in Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam inks to create a background behind the sentiment:

Wasn’t that a quick and easy alternative card to make with the stamp set?? The great thing about the project kits is that it gives you what you need to make the cards, aside from the stamp set and an ink pad (or two), and this is so awesome if you are just starting out making cards!

Gallery Grunge meets Butterfly Gala!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which features the Gallery Grunge stamp set and the new Butterfly Gala Bundle from the 2019 Occasions Catalog! What is in the Butterfly Gala Bundle? A super cute photopolymer stamp set and a coordinating punch! What I love about this set is that there are 4 butterfly designs that you can stamp and are made so that you punch them out perfectly! There are some very sweet sentiments and butterfly backgrounds to fill in the design, or you can color them in with your Stampin’ Blends. Today’s card is a great way to #makeacard and #sendacard to let a special someone know you are thinking of them, so let’s get started!

The card base is Gray Granite cardstock, cut at 4 ½” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

The base layer is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. I used the “plank floor” stamp from Gallery Grunge in Gray Granit ink to create a background:

For the front of the card, I stamped this butterfly design on Whisper White cardstock in Memento ink. To get three butterflies, I stamped the whole image first and then inked up just the small butterfly again and stamped that towards the edge of the cardstock. The punch and the stamps have the big butterfly on the bottom and the small butterfly on top. I then colored the butterflies in with Light Petal Pink, Light Flirty Flamingo, and Light Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends and then added a Wink of Stella, then punching out. The sentiment is in Gray Granite ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the second smallest oval die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. You will also need a 3” piece of Burlap Ribbon and 3 of the 5mm Pearls, which I colored with the Light Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend:

To assemble the card front, adhere the base layer to the card base. I first adhered the Burlap Ribbon with glue dots and then adhered the sentiment with dimensionals on top. I next adhered the butterflies with mini dimensionals and then added the colored pearls:

The inside is Whisper White cardstock, which I stamped and colored the same butterflies as the front, also with some Wink of Stella. I left this blank so this can be used for any occasion it may be needed for:

Do you decorate your envelopes? I sure do and for this envelope the same butterfly design and colors are used, along with Wink of Stella, to tie them all together. I love decorating the envelope, but I do keep it very simple and it will tie into what the card being sent is about:

Another quick and easy card that is sure to put a smile on your recipient’s face! Remember, it doesn’t have to be a holiday or special occasion to send a card, #makeacard and #sendacard is a sweet way to brighten someone’s day!!
