Mercury Glass Designer Acetate - How to use it?

The Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Acetate is one of those products that intrigues me yet intimidates me at the same time. I'm guessing that I am not the only one who feels this way. I figure, therefore, that it is time for me to step out of my comfort zone and play with this Mercury Glass Designer Acetate and see what I can come up. I hope showing you how I used it to make 3 different cards through the video replay below of my January 13th Facebook Live inspires you to do some creating with the fun new Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Acetate. Give it a try. I think you'll find it is a lot of fun to create with.

Enjoy the Moments

Enjoy the Moments with simple stamping and with fun new ways to color your stamps. In the following video replay from my January 6th Facebook Live on Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe, I'll show you an example of simple stamping with the Enjoy the Moments Stamp Set. Plus, I'll show you 2 ways to add multiple colors to a single stamp to make a big impact on your Corner Bouquet cards. I think you'll enjoy both styles of stamping and give them both a try.

Enjoy the Moments Stamp Set & Stitched with Whimsy Dies by Stampin' Up!

I created the following 2 cards with 2 different techniques for adding multiple ink colors to a single stamp. Be sure to view the video above for technique demonstrations. They're fun and easy to do and make a big impact!

Corner Bouquet & Enjoy the Moments Stamp Sets with Stitched with Whimsy Dies by Stampin' Up!

I colored my rubber stamp with Stampin' Write Markers in Melon Mambo, Bumblebee, Highland Heather, Soft Suede, and Shaded Spruce. Then I "huffed" on the stamp to remoisten the inks and stamped on Basic White card stock.
Corner Bouquet & Enjoy the Moments Stamp Sets with Stitched with Whimsy Dies by Stampin' Up!I used Shaded Spruce card stock to back the Basic White card stock for this card.

I used a different stamping technique to add multiple ink colors to my Corner Bouquet stamp for this card. This technique used Sponge Daubers and Ink Pads to add the various colors to my rubber stamp. Be sure to "huff" or breathe heavily on the inked stamp to remoisten the inks before stamping on Basic White card stock.

Corner Bouquet & Enjoy the Moments Stamp Sets with Stitched with Whimsy Dies by Stampin' Up!

For a simple change, I used Bumblebee card stock to back the Basic White card stock on this card.

True Love - Black & White with Pops of Color

True Love Designer Series Paper from the new Love You Always Suite in our 2021 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog makes it easy to create fun black & white cards with pops of color. While the Love You Always Suite does include images & sentiments for Valentine cards, it is also very versatile. This suite makes beautiful cards for anniversaries, bridal showers, engagements, and weddings and simply to tell people they are loved. AND, while the black & white True Love Designer Series Paper can make beautiful feminine cards with its many floral images, it's also great for making masculine using the geometric patterns sides of the paper. 

So take a look now at my December 30th Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe Facebook Live card making demonstration. I show you 2 ways to design cards using 4" x 6" pieces of your new favorite Designer Series Papers. You'll also get lots of ideas to add various pops of color to the black & white True Love Designer Series Paper for one-of-a-kind cards to bring love and smiles to those receiving your lovely cards.

 

The first 3 cards here show you how I used pieces of 4" x 6" DSP, cut down to 4" x 5 1/4" by cutting off 3/4" on one short side.  But don't get rid of those 3/4" strips as you can use them on your cards as shown in my video demonstration above and photos below.

Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

I began adding pops of color to the following card by coloring with Stampin' Blends in Rococo Rose and Old Olive. Notice how I used the 3/4" strip of DSP on the inside of the card.
Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Mixing and matching the fabulous sentiments and dies of the Forever & Always Bundle makes creating one-of-a-kind cards for special occasions so easy. How about that new Heart Charm embellishment as an accent on this card? I love it.
Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Utilize your strips of Designer Series Paper to add interest to the inside of your cards!
Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Ribbon and card stock in Just jade adds a simple touch of color to this pretty black & white card. Notice how I used the 3/4" strip of Designer Series Paper I cut off of the original 4" x 6" piece. Flip the DSP strip over for added detail.

Take a look at the gorgeous details in the DSP and dies used on this card.Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Using Magenta Madness adds a BIG POP of color on the following black & white True Love card.

Magenta Madness sure makes a statement against the black & white.

A bow tied with Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon is a fun accent for this card.

Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

 

In the following 3 cards, I started with 4" x 6" pieces of True Love Designer Series Paper with the geometric side up. Instead of cutting off a 3/4" strip, I actually tore the paper approximately 1 1/2" from one short side. TIP:  When I tear DSP or card stock, I prefer to hold it so that I tear towards me from top to bottom. In other words, I turned my DSP in a horizontal position, held it along the top with my left hand, placed my right thumb and index finger at top approximately 1 1/2" from the right side and pulled the paper toward my body. I feel like I have control of the paper as I'm tearing when I do it this way.

I added pops of color to this card with Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends. I love the exposed torn edge of this card too.Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

I added several pops of color with Sponge Daubers and ink pads.

Isn't this a great sentiment for a card for a special friend??? I love it!!!

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

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".

Dandy Garden Fun Fold Cards

I received these from my Stampin' Up! upline Susi Brunk & 2nd upline Sherrie Parker last week. A cute little canvas decorated with the Brightly Gleaming Suite products and a coordinating fun fold card. I used the fun fold card as inspiration for my December 20th Make It with Mary Monday Facebook Live.

I love the Ladybug Trinket Embellishments. They are metal and adhere easily with a Mini Glue Dot.Dandy Garden Suite by Stampin' Up!

The Dragonflies Punch is such a great part of the Dandy Garden Suite. You can punch your stamped dragonflies and punch dragonflies from the colorful Dandy Garden 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper as I did for these cards. I love the extra effort Stampin' Up! puts into coordinating its many products.

Don't skip the video above if you want to learn 2 ways you can put 2 or more colors of ink on a single stamp as I did for stamping these coordinating envelopes.

I absolutely love Blackberry Bliss, and I love the brightness of the other colors against the very rich Blackberry Bliss color.

Take a look at the very darling cards featuring the Darling Donkeys Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set. You can get this stamp set FREE with a $50 order January 5th - February 28th during Sale-A-Bration, our biggest annual promotion. In my December 16th Facebook Live Video Replay below, I show you a couple of cute card samples then demonstrate how to make each of them. In addition to featuring the Darling Donkeys Stamp Set, I also use Oh So Ombre 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, another product you can earn FREE with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration plus the AMAZING New Blending Brushes that can be found in our January - June 2021 Mini Catalog.

Now, take a look at my video. I hope you find it inspiring and are excited about all the new products to come January 5th!

 

These Darling Donkeys crack me up. Each one seems to have a personality of its own. Can you guess which one is the party animal? How about the sweet, sensitive one and the shy one? And, I can think of so many reasons to use them and have a list of people I think would really enjoy a card or other project featuring one or all of these Darling Donkeys. How about you?

If you need a really good pair of small paper scissors, I highly suggest Stampin' Up! Paper Snips. They are a must have in my Stampin' Peace Studio. I used them to cut out the "HEE HAW!" sentiments below.  Darling Donkeys & Oh So Ombre 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Quite Curvy Hello Note Card

It's nice to send a pretty card simply to say hello to a friend or loved one who you haven't see in a long time or who you know needs a little pick me up or to know they are thought of. This card is perfect for that person. The card is simple and quick to make. The gold hoop adds a fun element to this wreath card. The sentiment and flowers are from the Quiet Curvy Bundle. And with such bright colors as Magenta Madness, Granny Apple Green, and Pool Party, whose days wouldn't be made just a bit brighter with this card?

No extra layers of card stock or Designer Series Paper for this simply beautiful card.

Quite Curvy Stamp Set & Curvy Dies by Stampin' Up!I prefer to use Whisper White THICK card stock for my white card bases as it is much sturdier and stands up better than our original Whisper White card stock that is intended for layering. The same holds true for Very Vanilla card bases. 

Quite Curvy Stamp Set & Curvy Dies by Stampin' Up!
What a nice impact this Gold Hoop Embellishment adds. It makes this simple card a bit fancy!

 

TIPS for making this card: 

  • For adhering the Gold Hoop Embellishments, use a few Mini Glue Dots rolled up or even a few tiny pieces of Tear & Tape rolled. You don't need adhesive all the way around the Gold Hoop. Just 3-4 spots with good adhesive will hold your Gold Hoop in place nicely.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Black Momento Ink or in color of your choice.
  • I stamped 2 floral sprigs in Black Momento Ink and colored with Stampin' Blends in Magenta Madness, Granny Apple Green, and Pool Party.
  • Die cut both floral sprigs. Then cut one of them into 2 pieces (1 very small piece and 1 longer piece) and tuck and adhere these underneath the Gold Hoop. The other floral sprig I placed over the top of the hoop using Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere it to the card base.
  • Use a Mini Glue Dot behind the knot of the bow to adhere it to the bottom of the floral wreath.
