Fine Art Floral Birthday Card

Happy Free Friday Download Day! I hope you've had a happy, healthy, and productive week! Today's card features one of my favorite suites ever - Fine Art Gallery. This card was so fun to make I couldn't wait to share it. I love working with the Fine Art Designer Acetate and the way it compliments the beautiful Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper. If you haven't worked with these two designer papers, I highly suggest you put them on your next order. You will love the colorful and artistic floral impressions and patterns.

Happy Birthday from Minnie Mouse

Punch Art is so fun. I'm always in awe of those crafters who can look at a punch and see something completely different than the obvious. Think of the Tulip Punch as the head of a reindeer with antlers from the Sprig Punch. This is just 1 very simple example of Punch Art. Many Punch Artist work is very elaborate with them thinking WAY out of the box with their ordinary shape punches. I'm not in that league, but am certainly intrigued and learning to look at my punches differently.

Tulip Builder Punch & Sprig Punch by Stampin' Up!

Here is another simple but Oh, So Cute, example of Punch Art. You can use circle punches and dies to create Mickey and Minnie silhouettes. Add a die cut bow tie from the Suit & Tie Dies and you have Minnie Mouse's bow!

This is one punch art we ALL can do and is sure to bring smiles to Disney fans from 1 to 101. Click on the following link to download a Free Project Sheet to make this card. Download Project Sheet - Minnie Mouse Birthday Card

Easiest way to use Gilded Leafing

Gilded Leafing can add a dramatic effect to your cards, scrapbook pages, and other paper crafts. There are several different ways to use it from using it with Heat & Stick Powder and Heat Tool to a variety of adhesives. This card shows one of the simplest ways to use Gilded Leafing as an accent or embellishment. Simply lay a strip of Tear & Tape onto card stock where you want to add Gilded Leafing. Remove backing and press down into Gilded Leafing. Remove excess with small brush, sponge, or your finger tip.

To make this card, be sure to download my Free Project Sheet.

Art Gallery Stamp Set & Gilded Leafing by Stampin' Up!

TIP: Gilded Leafing is VERY light & airy. I HIGHLY suggest that you pour the Gilded Leafing from its original jar into a larger plastic container with a lid. The container should be large enough to press your card stock down into.

Here's to Happy Stamping for us all!


Congratulations, Emily!

Two weeks ago, our family celebrated our daughter & sister Emily. Emily and her Doctor of Physical Therapy classmates had their pinning ceremony (postponed from last year due to covid). While only students and staff could be at the in-person event, the rest of us watched virtually. What an exciting time for this class of 2022. Just 3 days later they all completed their 2nd year of DPT school. Now, they enter their 3rd and final year by doing 3 rounds of clinicals. We are so proud of Emily for how hard she has worked and all that she has accomplished and for the all-around good person that she is. 

This is the card I made for Emily to mark this special milestone. It features the beautiful new Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper along with a sentiment from the Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set. You can see the full Hand-Penned Suite Collection on pages 104-105 in our new Annual Catalog.

 

Be sure to download the Free Project Sheet so you can make this card too.

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.

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".

 

 

 ***Please note that the products in the Dandy Garden Suite can be found on pages 24-27 of our new January - June 2021 Mini Catalog and will be available to order beginning January 5th.
