Graduation Card

Sarah wmHope you had a good Saturday. Just got back from a beautiful wedding of two people who are truly made for each other.

I have enclosed a card that I made for a special friend’s daughter who graduated this year. I used some new Stampin’ Up products and some previous products. I used a new framelet to make the name with.  It is the Layering Alphabet Edgelits which also come in a bundle with the Lined Alphabet stamp set.  The colors I used were Real Red and Night of Navy cardstock that was put on a Whisper White base card.  The flower unfortunately is not a SU product as the majority of my punches are still packed in the POD till we get our house all put back together.

Remember you can always shop online with me by clicking on the SU Catalog which will take you to my shopping page or by clicking on designsbypennynelson.com

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 .

Eastern Palace #4

DSC_1672wm

Today I am going to be explaining how to do the card on the bottom far right.  I just love this stamp set Eastern Beauty!  The measurements are 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″. The Tranquil Tide piece of cs is 5 1/4″ x 4″. the Whisper White piece that I did the stamping on measures 5″ x 3 3/4″.  First, I stamped the big circle in Lemon Lime Twist  and built the card around it.  Next using Tranquil Tide I stamped the first flower image to the left of the circle.  Next, I stamped the flower to the bottom of the middle stamping off the paper. From there I continued building towards the top left corner.  I then came in with Lemon Lime Twist and using the spritzing looking stamp I went around the whole flower over lapping each petal as I did this.  I stamped the sentiment in Tranquil Tide Ink in the big circle.  I adhered the Whisper White layer to the Tranquil Tide layer and then adhered them to the Whisper White card base.  I completed the card by using a circle from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers and put it in the middle of each flower.  This was a very easy card to make 🙂

Eastern Palace Suite

I’m back from Kansas City!!  I had a wonderful time soaking up the Holy Spirit in the International House of Prayer KC, otherwise known as IHOPKC Prayer Room.  I enjoyed my time with my younger daughter Amy and her friends and going to her school to help her get her room ready for the new school year!!

My next few blog posts will be the cards I did in my Eastern Palace class.

DSC_1672wm

I did 3 of the ones Stampin’ Up put out for us to use for a class.  I love this Suite of stamps, thinlits, and embellishments! This Suite can be found on pages 18 – 19 in the Annual Catalog.

Today’s card will be the top left one. It uses the new Tranquil Tide cs for the base and also the Designer Series paper which is cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″ being careful the wave pattern faces the right way.  The Very Vanilla piece is 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″. You then run it through your big shot putting the thinlit close to the left side of the paper. You will use the large circle thinlit.  Next you will use a stamp from the Eastern Beauty set.  Using Lemon Lime Twist ink you will use the small circle and stamp a few times on the Very Vanilla piece.  Then using Tranquil Tide Ink you will stamp the sentiment “let’s be friends forever”, the swirly “s” at the bottom, and then the three little leave clusters and stamp in between the wishbone shapes. You then adhere it on the card using snail (tape runner).  Next you will cut the flower out using a 3″x 3″ square of Fresh Fig cs, where you will need to use both of the star thinlits, fitting the smaller one into the larger one and running it through the big shot.  Then use a circle from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers and put it in the center of the flower.  Adhere the flower using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Friend

all cards wm

Today’s card is the bottom right “friend” card that uses all the new in – colors for 2017 – 2019.  This is so easy to do and again that’s why I chose to do it at my open-house launch of the new annual catalog!

The card base uses Basic Black cardstock. It measures 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  The Whisper White layer is 4 1/8″ x 5 1/4″ adhered to the black cardstock.  A second piece of Whisper White cardstock is 4″ x 5″ upon which you you build the front of the card. Each of the strips are 1″ x 5″ and will be adhered unto this piece.  The strip colors are Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist. Trim the ends if needed.

Cut out a Whisper White large oval using the Stitched Shapes Framelits where the word “friend”is glued on .  “friend”is cut from Basic Black cardstock using the new Lovely Words Thinlits (143733) that also comes in a bundle with the Lovely Inside & Out Stamp Set.

With eitherMulti-Purpose glue or the Fine Tip glue adhere “friend” to the Whisper White oval.

Next take some Lemon Lime Twist ribbon and wrap around the card front.  Then adhere the card front to the Whisper White layer.

Complete the card by using Stampin’ Dimensionals to put the oval on top of the ribbon.

Since we are using Basic Black cardstock for the card base pu a Whisper White layer 4′ x 5″ inside the card.

Today’s card is going to be the top right one using the new Daisy punch,  This is a very quick and easy card to make especially for beginners to paper crafts.

Whisper White cardstock is used for the card base which is cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  Basic Black cardstock is used for the top layer which is cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere it to the base card using Stampin’ Up Snail tape runner.  Punch out 3 daisies using the new Daisy punch in Whisper White and adhere them on the card.  Using a scrap of Daffodil Delight punch out 3 centers for the daisies using a 3/4″ circle punch and adhere them to each daisy.  Using a scrap of Whisper White stamp the sentiment “get well wishes” from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set using memento Black ink and punch out using the classic label punch.  Next adhere to the back of the label the new Stampin’ Up Mini Dimensionals at both ends and put on the card. To complete the card put a clear Faceted Gem inside each daisy.

Happy Wednesday

Had my Hostess Club gathering last night.  I always have a lot of fun with those gals 🙂  Unfortunately we were missing some because of summertime and vacations.

all cards wm

Today I’m going to share the bottom left card. It was using the Color Theory Suite.

Smile wm

I love this stamp set Colorful Seasons as it has such versatility.  You can do a summer at the beach because of the lounger chair.  You can can do a fall card using the leaf stamps.  There is a snowflake stamp for a winter card.  This suite also has a Memories and More pack which you can use in photo album, scrapbook pages or to add that extra wow to a card!

The base of this card is Berry Burst cardstock which is 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  Next layer is Whisper White which is cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″.  For the open house I had a choice of 4 different colors to choose from which included Berry Burst, Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive which was cut to the size 3 3/4″ x 5″ and was adhered to the Whisper White layer with stampin dimensionals.  I cut the flowers out of the variegated side of the Color Theory DSP paper using the flower thinlit from the  Seasonal Layers thinlits that go with the stamp set.  The middle of the flower dots used the Glitter Enamel Dots that go this Suite.

I stamped the saying You make me Smile from the stamp set Colorful Seasons onto a scrap of  Whisper White cardstock.  This card used the Berry Burst ink and was then punched out using the new Pretty Label punch.  Also, the Pretty Label punch was used with the DSP paper.

This suite can be found on pgs. 146 – 147 in the new annual catalog.

You can purchase these products by clicking on the catalog icon to shop with me.  The code for the month of July is JBBJWHFC.  If you spend up to $ 149.99 use that code but if you spend $150.00 or more don’t use it and you will receive the Stampin Rewards.

Till next time a big HUG!
