True Love Happy Anniversary Card

Black and white with a pop of color! That's what this card featuring the True Love Designer Series Paper is all about. The True Love Designer Series Paper features floral prints and geometric patterns in black and white making it versatile enough to use for just about any reason or occasion. Add a pop of color to it, and it's even more amazing to create with.

For today's card, I combined the True Love Designer Series Paper and Always in My Heart Bundle. Pops of color were added with Sponge Daubers and ink pads in Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, and Highland Heather. Tearing the DSP and popping up the curvy Happy Anniversary banner with Stampin' Dimensionals are two ways of adding even more detail and interest to this pretty card celebrating love.

I hope you like this card. If you'd like to re-create this one or create one of your own similar to this, I've prepared a Free Project Sheet for you.

So many details make this card amazing - the geometric pattern of the DSP and floral print with added color, torn edge of the DSP, stitching and folds of the Highland Heather banner, simple Matte Black Dots. Simple things to make a stunning impact taking this card from good to great.

Sending Happy Thoughts

There are so many reasons I love card making. I get to use amazing coordinating products in an array of fabulous colors and themes too numerous to name or count. I get to belong to a community of creative people who understand my love for stamping and paper crafting and inspire me to keep on stamping and creating. I get to express myself creatively and add my own personal touch to my correspondences. I get to inspire and teach others to enjoy stamping and paper crafting like I do. Best of all, card making keeps me spreading love, kindness, and happy thoughts in challenging times by sending the hand stamped cards I've made.

I made this beautiful set of cards to let friends and family they are thought of and loved. They feature the Hydrangea Hill Suite and Happy Thoughts Stamp Set - 2 of my favorite new products in the new January - June Mini Catalog. I hope you love these cards as much as I do. If so, you can download the Free Project Sheet I created for you.

We're in this Together!

Once again, I've paired the wonderful Flower & Field Designer Series Paper with the Heal Your Heart Stamp Set and love the result. "We're in this Together." A statement we've heard often through the pandemic but a statement I believe can be applied to so many occasion. Often times, when ones we love are hurting, we struggle to find the right words to say. Yet, when it comes right down to it, the person whose hurting just wants to know they are not alone in this world. No we can't always fix someone's problem, but we can stand by them. We can support and encourage and walk beside them as they face whatever it is that is hurting them. After all, together is the best place to be.

As I reflect on all that has taken place in our country USA over the last year and most especially in the last couple days, I ask us all to come together in praying for peace, unity, kindness, and respect. And let's all try to find the brightness amongst the darkness.

Happy Stamping!

Flowers for Every Season for Curvy Celebrations

It's always fun to mix and match Stampin' Up! products. I especially like to match the "old" with the "new" or described better as matching Annual Catalog products with new catalog products. In today's cards, I mix the Flowers for Every Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper and 2020-2022 In Color products from the current Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog with the Quite Curvy Bundle from the January - June 2021 Mini Catalog.

I have prepared a Free Project Sheet for you to make this card. I hope you will download it now and enjoy it for making Quite Curvy cards today and in the future. Download Project Sheet - Quite Curvy Cards with Flowers for Every Season DSP

For my card below, I simply used the reverse side of the Designer Series Paper I used for the card above. A different pattern on each side of our Designer Series Papers doubles our paper choices and makes creating with Stampin' Up! stamps, ink, and paper even more fun.

Notice the detail on this particular Curvy Die. I love the assortment of details on the Curvy Dies. Flip the Curvy Die around to put the detail on your bottom piece of Designer Series Paper instead of the top piece for a little bit of a change.

More Split Panel Cards

My Saturday, December 26th blog post featured a video demonstration of making a Split Panel Card using the Dandy Garden Suite featured in our new January - June 2021 Mini Catalog launching January 5th. If you missed it, please click on the following link to see the demonstration and photos of the Split Panel Cards:  https://bit.ly/37OFE6Y.

Today's blog post features a twist on these Split Panel Cards. I used the same Stampin' Up! Dandy Garden Suite products and the same cutting and scoring dimensions to make a different version of my previous Split Panel Cards. Today's Split Panel Cards are in the landscape or horizontal position rather than the portrait or vertical position.

 

Calypso Coral is just one of many gorgeous Stampin' Up! colors in the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper Collection. Dandelions and dragonflies are a couple of the coordinating images seen throughout the Dandy Garden product collection. Dragonflies can be stamped then punched with the coordinating stamp set and punch or use the Dragonflies Punch to punch dragonflies from the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper. Either way the dragonflies are a wonderful addition to your cards and paper crafting projects, especially when adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Dandy Garden Suite by Stampin' Up!

Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim is easy to tie bows with and just the right weight for using as a card embellishment.

Dandy Garden Suite by Stampin' Up!

My sentiment was stamped so that it is covered when the card is closed.

Dandy Garden Suite by Stampin' Up!

 

Misty Moonlight and bumblebees are also coordinating components of the Dandy Garden Suite. On this card, I placed the extra horizontal piece toward the top of my card rather than near the bottom as in the previous card. A simple change that makes a dramatic impact.

Dandy Garden Suite by Stampin' Up!

If you're curious as to how I managed 2 colors of ink on 1 stamped image, be sure to check out my video demonstration on my December 26th blog post. I show you 2 ways to add 2 or more colors to a single stamp for a multicolored stamped image. Click here to see the video demonstration for this stamping technique and the Split Panel Card.

Dandy Garden Suite by Stampin' Up!


Cutting Dimensions:

  • Start with 4 1/4" x 11". Cut off 1 3/4" from one end. This is the extra piece that you place vertically and adhere to top flap of card.
  • Card base is the 4 1/4" x 9 1/4" piece you now have. Score at 1 7/8" from each end. Fold on both score lines to form top and bottom flaps for card front.
  • Designer Series Paper - Cut 2 pieces 1 5/8" x 4" and 1 piece of a different but coordinating DSP 1 1/2" x 4".
  • Whisper White for inside of card = 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

Poinsettia Door Wreath


Screen Shot 2020-12-08 at 11.38.02 PM

Happy Thursday - 3D Thursday that is. I am honored and thrilled to have been asked to be the December 10th Guest Designer on the 3D Thursday Facebook Page. Of course, I said yes. This lovely poinsettia wreath is the project I designed and am so excited to be sharing. It really is quite easy to make and looks even more stunning in person. Make one yourself or make a few to give as gifts.

Poinsettias Squared

I absolutely love this card, and to be honest it was created by a few extra pieces I had laying around from making other projects. I had a few of the Red Velvet poinsettias die cut with the Arrange a Wreath Dies and a few of Stitched Squares left over as well from yet a different project. And if you know me, I'm always looking for a way to use my scraps and left over pieces. I hate for anything to go away. So I pulled these pieces, started laying them out in different ways for a card, die cut some more Red Velvet poinsettias plus die cut some in green to cut apart and use as leaves, and tossed aside one of my 4 Whisper White Stitched Squares. And what you see here is the end result. I love it for its unique layout, bright colors and traditional color combination, pretty Designer Series Paper, and rhinestone embellishments colored with Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends. It's bright. It's fresh. It's cheerful.

Be sure to click on the link below the photos to download a Free PDF Project Sheet to make this card.

Strips of coordinating Designer Series Paper and Red Velvet bring interest to the inside of this festive card. What  great way to use up some of those scraps we all have around.

Trimming the Town Gift Card Holder

It so much fun to give holiday gift cards in your own handmade gift card holders. I created these two using the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper and a sentiment from the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set. What a fun and festive presentation they make. They are quick, easy, and inexpensive to make. Be sure to download the Free PDF Project Sheet I created for you.
