Fall Class – Count My Blessings #3

Happy Monday,

I had a busy Saturday!!  The Houston Choral Society a group I have sung with since 1988 had our big Oktoberfest concert.  It was mainly done in German so I’ve been spending a lot of time working on it!! Unfortunately because of it falling on World Card Making Day I was unable to have a group of ladies to come over for a day of stamping!!

4 cards wm

I’m going to be describing the bottom left card.  I love making these “peek – a- boo” cards.  The base is Early Espresso cs cut 5 1/2′ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″  I used Crushed Curry, Whisper White cs, and Colored Me Autumn DSP paper.  I stamped the Acorn design with Memento Tuxcedo Ink  on Whisper White cs and then used blending pens with Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, and Chocolate Chip inks.  The DSP paper is cut 5 1/4′ x 4″ and then find the middle and cut down 1 1/2″ down.  Then fold over each corner and using tape runner to hold it down.  Then adhere it onto the front of the card using tape runner. Next using the Stitched Circles cut the largest out of Crushed Curry and then the next size smaller that you stamped the design on.  Adhere the Whisper White to the Crushed Curry piece and using Stampin Dimensionals to the Crushed Curry to put it on the center of the DSP.  I used Thinking of You from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set using Chocolate Chip ink and punched out using the new Classic Label punch.  Adhere it using the new mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Today’s card uses the Painted Autumn DSP along with Cajun Craze cs for the base.  You will need an 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Cajun Craze scored at 4 1/4″.  You will also need a piece 2 3/4″ x  4″ 1/8″Cajun Craze cs.  The DSP paper will be 3 3/4″ x 5″.  The Very Vanilla piece is 3 7/8″ x 2″ 7/16″.  Using Memento Tuxcedo Black ink you will stamp the flower image.  Then with blender pens use Soft Sky for the flower, Pear Pizazz for the leaves, and Cajun Craze Stampin Write marker for the stamens of the flower.  Before adhering the DSP to the front of the card wrap a piece of Soft Sky Classic Weave ribbon around it.  Then use either Snail or Tombow to adhere it to the card front. Before adhering the Very Vanilla stamped piece use Cajun Craze ink to stamp Happy Thanksgiving that comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. Adhere the stamped piece to the Cajun Craze piece and then use Stampin Dimensionals to put that piece on the card over the ribbon.  Stamp the inside on the $” x 5 1/4″ Very Vanilla cs using the sentiment from the stamp set using Cajun Craze ink .

Getting Caught Up!

all cards wm

The first card today will be the top left one.  I saw it on Pinterest and thought it was so cute and easy to do.  It was from the Birthday Memories Suite found on pg. 68 – 69 in the new catalog.

It was your regular A2 size card using Blushing Bride cardstock.  The first layer was paper from the DSP Birthday Memories paper.  It was cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″.  The Happy Birthday was stamped at the left side of the 2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ Whisper White piece using Real Red ink.  Blushing Bride cardstock was used to cut out the largest Stitched Oval shaped Framelit.  The little girl is cut out from another Birthday Memories DSP paper along with the present. Blushing Bride 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon (retired) was used .  Put the ribbon under the Whisper White piece and then tie a knot using a smaller piece of ribbon.

Such a cool breezy day here in Katy, TX.  It was in high 80’s yesterday and high is only going to be 72 today!  Crazy weather!!  At least this weather will hold out tomorrow and not rain on us when we drive to Shreveport, LA, for the On Stage Stampin Up gathering  🙂

Today’s card is on the bottom left.  Base uses Sweet Sugarplum cs which is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ Next layer is Vary Vanilla cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″ and then run through embossing folder Large Polka Dot using the Big Shot.

The bowl cut out in Crumb Cake cs, ice cream scoops are cut out using Very Vanilla cs, to have it be a French Vanilla flavor, the topping is in Chocolate Chip cs, while the cherry is cut from a scrap of Whisper White cs and then colored using Stampin Write markers Real Red and Pear Pizazz, while the spoon is cut from a scrap of silver foil.  They are all cut out the Frozen Treats Framelits Dies found in the Occasions catalog.   The toppings are adhered to the ice cream scoops before the scoops of ice cream are adhered to the bowl using Tombow glue except for one scoop which is adhered with Stampin Dimensionals.  The cherry and spoon are also glued on. You then glue the bowl to the4″ x 2 1/2″ Very Vanilla cs.  Using Sweet Sugarplum ink you stamp the sentiment from the Cool Treats Stamps.

To assemble the card you adhere the Very Vanilla piece onto the 4″ x 2 3/4″ piece of Sweet Sugarplum cs.  Then you tie a piece of Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon around the embossed Very Vanilla piece and then adhere it all to the base card using Tombow glue.

I hope you enjoy making this Yummy card!

Cool Treats

This week I’m going to post the cards I did for my Cool Treats Class in March.

all 4 cool treat cards wm

The first card top left I like to call “peek a-boo” card.  It uses Chocolate Chip cs for the base.  A piece of DSP from Tasty Treats is cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″.  Fold it in half and just gently pinch it so as not to make an entire fold.  Then using paper trimmer cut in 1 1/2″ and then fold each of those halves back to make the triangles.  Using a small glue dot will help hold the edges down.

The largest stitched circle framelits was cut out using Watermelon Wonder cs.  The ice cream cone was cut out using the Frozen Treats Framelits Dies.  The cone used Chocolate Chip, the ice cream scoops used Peek-a-Boo Peach and Whisper White cs.  The fudge topping was cut out in Chocolate Chip cs. The cherry was cut out in Whisper White and then colored using Real Red and Pear Pizazz markers.

The sentiment “Sweet” was stamped on a 1 3/4″ x 1″ piece of Watermelon Wonder cs  using Chocolate Chip ink.  Then rounded the corners using Project Life corner rounder. After that use a sponge dauber and go around the edges with Chocolate Chip ink.

Using Tombow glue on the DSP piece put it on the front of the base. Use Stampin Dimensionals to put the other pieces on the card.

You can purchase any of these products by going to either catalog to shop at the store.

I have a new monthly shopping code which is ) KDJMTVZQ for you to use if you order up to $149.00.  If you order $150.00 or more you will be the hostess and receive the Stampin Rewards.

Swirly Bird Card

This card was fun to make!! Again I saw the idea for this on Pinterest.

img_0798-happy-day-wm

 

It is your basic A2 card with Whisper White cardstock for the base cut at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored and 4 1/4. Then I wanted to showcase all the new Stampin’ Up in- colors. Each color was cut at 1″ x 3 3/4″ except for Flirty Flamingo which was cut at 1 1/4″ x 3 3/4″.  They were then adhered to another piece of Whisper White 4″ x 5 1/4″. I started with emerald Envy first at the bottom and worked my way up to the top.  So the next color is Peekaboo Peach, Dapper Denim, Sweet Sugarplum, and Flirty Flamingo. The top layer was also 4″ x 5 1/4″ using Whisper White. Using the wavy thinlit from the Swirly Scribbles Thinklits I put it in the middle of the paper.  I ran that through the Big Shot and ended up with three separate pieces. before adhering to the card I stamped Happy Day from the Perfectly Wrapped stamp set using Dapper Denim Ink on the right had side of the card. Then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to put the outer pieces on the card while using the Fine Tip Glue to put the middle wavy section down onto the in-colored piece.

So, to recap how to assemble the card you adhere the in- color strips to one piece of Whisper White and using Stampin’ Dimenisonals to put that piece on the front of the card. Next, you cut out the next Whisper White piece with adding Stampin’ Dimensionals to the outside two pieces and adhering the wavy section using the Fine Tip Glue to the in-color paper.

Jars of Love card #4

Hi All,

This is the last card we made using Jars of Love stamp set.

img_0823

We stamped the three different sizes of jars on the Fruit Stand Designer Series paper using Dapper Denim ink and then used the Everyday Jar Framelits to cut them out with.  Real Red ink was used for the jar lids.  The bow was stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Daffodil Delight.

The Whisper White was 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.  The In-Color DSP was 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 and the Dapper Denim was 2 3/4 x 5 1/4.  I put the DSO first and put the solid Dapper Denim on top of it.  I cut one of the Delicate White Doilies in half and put it on first with the Jars on top of it.  The tag was cut out using the Tags & Labels Framelits with the sentiment Hello, that is also in the Jars of Love stamp set, stamped on it using Dapper Denim ink. All the jars, tag and ribbon where put on using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Jars of Love

Good Morning!

Sorry I have been missing in action!  A lot has been going on in my life!  In fact I’m in Kansas City, MO, helping my daughter set up her classroom for the next school year which seems to be upon us already 🙂

Today’s card is another one from my Jars of Love class.

IMG_0821

I saw this example on Pinterest using Flirty Flamingo, Soft Sky, Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Blushing Bride, Early Espresso, Crushed Curry and Delightful Dijon ink colors.  I really had fun with this stamp set.  I enjoy the two step stamping of the larger flowers.

The larger flower was first stamped using Blushing Bride and then using Flirty Flamingo inks.  The next one was first stamped with Crushed Curry and then Delightful Dijon inks. They were cut out using the Jars of Love Framelits.  The smaller flowers were stamped in Soft Sky and Dapper Denim inks and cut out using the Jars of Love Framelits. The jar was stamped using Dapper Denim ink and then the inside was stamped using Soft Sky ink. The bow was stamped with Flirty Flamingo ink and cut out using the bow framelit.   Everything was stamped on Whisper White cardstock.

The top and bottom right corners of the Whisper White layer were rounded using the Project of LIfe corner rounder punch.

Once the jar was stamped and flowers were cut out I just placed them on the card without adhering them at first to see where I wanted to put the green leaves which were stamped using Emerald Envy ink. Once I got the leaves stamped on I started adhering the flowers using stampin dimensionals on some of them.

The “for you” was cut from the Mini Treat Bag framelits. It was cut out of Flirty Flamingo cardstock. The embossed layer used the new embossing folder Seaside and also used Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

Jars of Love

Happy Saturday!

Today I’m starting to share some of the cards we made in the Jars of Love class this month.  The first card I got the idea from Pinterest that was from one that  Emily Campbell posted.  I liked the way she used not only the Jars of Love stamp set but By the Sea DSP.

Jars of love #2

 

The colors used were soft sky for the base of the card and then the next layer was the DSP paper.  The flowers were stamped using Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo inks.  The leaves were stamped using Emerald Envy ink.  The mason jar was stamped on Soft Sky cardstock using Dapper Denim ink and then cut out with the framelits that go with it.

Assembly of the card on top of the DSP paper you put the doily and then the mason jar is put on with dimensionals.  The flowers and leave stems are also cut out by using the framelit that goes with the stamp.  The stems are put on using fine tip glue, and the flowers are put on the stems and leaves using dimensionals.  The sentiment is stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla paper 1″x 4″using Flirty Flamingo ink. You cut the flag at one end.   It is then put on the card using dimensionals.

Swirly Bird card

Good Morning,

Today I’m sharing another card from catalog launch.  We used the Swirly Bird stamp set and the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits along with the Timeless Textures stamp set.  I saw this idea on Pinterest and added a tweak here and there.

A stamp from Timeless Textures was used for the hair in Peekaboo Peach. The eyes were cut from Dapper Denim, the nose from Flirty Flamingo, the mouth from Sweet Sugar Plum.  We only used a part of that thinlit for the mouth.  The tie was done in Emerald Envy.

The base of the card was Sweet Sugar Plum and then the next layer was Whisper White.  I wanted to show how you could be serious or cute with this bundle! My card class was going to be more on the serious side.

I will start showing those cards we did in the Swirly Bird class next time.
