Well Suited in 2 Styles!

Take a look at two styles of masculine cards I created with the Well Suited Suite by Stampin' Up! One card is created using several coordinating papers from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper pack. The other card is a fun fold card and features one piece of the Well Suited Designer Series Paper but showcases BOTH sides of it. Take a look at my video replay below of a recent Facebook Live I did. You'll get all the dimensions you need plus some tips for successful card making as you view my video demonstration of these two masculine cards. Of course, these layouts are perfect for any and all of your favorite Designer Series Papers. 

 

I absolutely LOVE this Well Suited Suite but most especially its Designer Series Paper. It's perfect for making masculine cards to celebrate the special men and boys in your life. It's bright. It's bold. It's fun. I created two a great cards featuring this fabulous Well Suited Designer Series Paper.

This card layout is awesome for any and all of your favorite Designer Series Papers.

Look at all the details, in addition to the many pieces of DSP, I used on this card to make it fun and interesting! Twine in Basic Gray & Night of Navy, Matte Black Dots, and card stock punched with the Double Oval Punch. They're all great separately, but together, they're a party celebrating your special guy!

The card below features one of my new favorite fun folds because I love being able to feature BOTH sides of my favorite Designer Series Papers as often as I can. This is another great card layout that will work with any and all of your favorite Designer Series Papers by Stampin' Up!

Playful Pets Fun Fold Card

I love my Fun Fold Friday Facebook Lives. It's always fun to learn and share various Fun Fold Cards. Friday, March 26th, I demonstrated how to make a Napkin Fold Card featuring the Playful Pets Suite. This video replay will give you dimensions and guided instruction to make a Playful Pets Napkin Fold Card plus I'll show you some additional samples I made. So if you're a lover of fun fold cards and/or a dog or cat lover (or perhaps both), I think you'll enjoying viewing this video.

Darling Donkeys Pop-Up Card

I love this card. I had so much fun making it and sharing it on my February 8, 2021, Facebook Live in my Stampin' Peace VIP Group. I love it, first of all, because it is a fun fold card, more specifically, a POP-UP card! I promise you that after watching my video demonstration, you will see that making pop-up cards really is fun and really is easy. And everyone loves getting a pop-up card!

The second reason I love this card so much is that I made a picket fence using the Banners Pick A Punch. I was inspired to include a picket fence on this Darling Donkeys card by a card I saw created by one of my Merry Stampers Team Members, Avis Anderson. I thought it was so clever. I'm looking forward to making more picket fences on my cards and scrapbook pages thanks to Avis!

 

These are the cards created by Merry Stampers Teammate Avis Anderson that inspired me to make my own picket fence cards. I was so excited when the idea to combine the Darling Donkeys Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set with a white picket fence. Thanks for inspiring me, Avis! I see more picket fences in my future.139215981_10224065457814220_3557180751810801166_n

Friends Are Like Seashells

It's true. Friends are like seashells, each unique and amazing and beautiful in their own way. Like seashells, we collect these friends through our life's journey and treasure them and the memories that brought us together through the years. There is so much to love about the Sand & Sea Suite in our January - June Mini Catalog but my favorite parts of it are the Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle and Pearlescent Specialty Paper. These products combined with Sahara Sand card stock and foil sheets helped me create simple yet stunning cards, each slightly different. 

Please enjoy this video replay of my January 21st Facebook Live. I hope you will be inspired to create and perhaps even learn something new as you view this video. 

Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle & Pearlescent Specialty Paper by Stampin' Up!

This first card couldn't be anymore simple. I cut a piece of Pearlescent Specialty Paper 5 1/4" x 4" and embossed it with my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine and Seashells 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to my Sahara Sand card base. The card really shows off the details of this embossing folder. Simple and so very elegant.
Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle & Pearlescent Specialty Paper by Stampin' Up!

The two cards below show a side-by-side comparison of my first card and my second card. Again, I started with a piece of Pearlescent Specialty Paper, this time cutting it to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". I then die cut it using my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the large Seaside Seashells Die. Next, I placed my die cut paper into the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder (matching up the shells,etc) and ran it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine again. I then used my Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the die cut & embossed Pearlescent Paper to a piece of 5 1/4" x 4" Sahara Sand Foil. Layers were then adhered to a Sahara Sand card base. I used Basic White card stock cut to 5 1/4" x 4" on the inside of the card.

Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle & Pearlescent Specialty Paper by Stampin' Up!

Just love this sentiments. What a wonderful analogy.
Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle & Pearlescent Specialty Paper by Stampin' Up!

Do you see the difference in each of the following 3 cards. The difference is the stamping. The first card (center front) was not stamped at all. On the second card (upper left), I "stamped off" each of the seashells with Sahara Sand ink. One the third card (upper right), I stamped each of the seashells in Sahara Sand ink at full strength. TIP:  For the 2nd and 3rd cards, you want to die cut, then stamp shells, set ink with Heat Tool, and then emboss with 3d Seashells Embossing Folder.

Christmas Tins for Treats, Cash, & More

A couple weeks ago, I posted some Rectangle Tins I decorated for my Thanksgiving Table using Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper and Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set. If you missed it, be sure to check it out with this link: https://bit.ly/3kZgOoY.

Today, I hope you'll enjoy these tins I decorated using coordinating sheets of "Tis the Season Designer Series Paper. Each one is decorated uniquely, one looking more feminine and the other more masculine. These would be great stocking stuffers!

Can you guess the treats I have wrapped in this tin? If you guessed Bite-sized Kit-Kat bars you are correct. Yummy!Rectangle Tins, "Tis the Season Designer Series Paper, Wonder of the Season Ribbon by Stampin' Up!

I think this tin looks a bit more masculine, but I have a hunch anyone would love to receive this.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Outside top DSP = 2 1/2" x 4"
  • Belly Band DSP = 3" x 6" (The ends will not meet on the top of the tin, so you'll just adhere the left and right sides of the rectangle DSP to the ends of the belly band DSP.)
  • Inside top DSP = 3 7/8" x 2 1/2"
  • Inside top Whisper White Layer = 3 5/8" x 2 1/4"
  • Inside bottom DSP = 3 3/4" x 2 3/8"
  • Candy wrappers DSP = Measure the width based on size of candy bar you are wrapping. Then measure the length needed to wrap around the candy bar.

You're one in a million!

New products are so much fun to play with. The Quite Curvy Bundle, Curvy Christmas Stamp Set, and festive Curvy Celebrations DSP do not disappoint. In fact, I'm going to need a lot more time to create with these fabulous and versatile products. My Facebook Live video replay below gives you some tips for using the Curvy Dies and will show you how to make a beautiful card perfect for telling someone how much they mean to you. 

The cards in today's blog post give you a sneak peek at the Quite Curvy Bundle which will be in our 2021 January - June Mini Catalog. But you don't have to wait that long to order it. The Quite Curvy Bundle is available as a pre-order to EVERYONE beginning November 3rd.  And if you love Quite Curvy Bundle, consider adding the Curvy Christmas Stamp Set & Classic Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper to your upcoming order. These coordinating Christmas products will NOT be in the 2021 Jan - June Mini Catalog like the Quite Curvy Bundle. They are exclusive to the Curvy Celebrations Promotion November 3rd - January 4th only.

3 Curvy Dies were used on this card. One cut the curvy edge & dots. The second one cut the leaves and embossed the curly lines. The third die used cut out the bird I colored with Stampin' Blends.

I added an extra layer of Mint Macaron card stock between the card base and Whisper White card stock on the inside of the card for a little added interest.
