Truly Tailored Masculine Card and Treat Holder

DSC_0008

Here is a birthday card and treat for the true gentleman in your life! My projects are made with the stamps and accessories in the True Gentleman Suite of products found on page 44 of the Occasions Catalog.

DSC_0001

The card is made with Chocolate Chip Cardstock as the base of the card. I adhered the Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon to the card with Tear and Tape adhesive. I added some Night of Navy Enameled circle shapes to the focal point of the card.

DSC_0004

I finished off the inside of the card with a Very Vanilla cardstock panel and stamped the birthday wish with Night of Navy Stampin’Pad. I also stamped a couple of elements that came in the stamp set above and below the sentiment. I added a strip of the True Gentlemen DSP to the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel just to pull it all together.

DSC_0011

This is a fun treat holder to make! It uses the 2 ” x  8″ cellophane bags that are in the Annual Stampin’Up! Catalog. The candy is Hershey Nuggets that I wrapped with the True Gentleman DSP just cut the paper to 1″ x 3 1/4″ and adhere with a glue dot. The tray in the treat holder is 2″ x 5″ and each long side is scored at a little less that 1/4″ on each side. I used Night of Navy Cardstock for the tray.

DSC_0013

The tag is punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch after stamping with an image from the Truly Tailored Stamp set. The punch and the stamp set are sold as a bundle for a savings of 10%! It is called the Truly Tailored Bundle.

I hope you all like my card and treat holder and it inspires you to CREATE!

Party Pandas Sale-a-bration Cards

DSC_0003

I just can’t get enough of this stamp set! This stamp set is called Party Pandas and it is FREE with a $50 purchase. I love the simplicity and the easy design options! This set is easy to work with it just took a few minutes to create these cards.

DSC_0004

Isn’t he cute! I just used black and white designer series paper and added a splash of red. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits for the Whisper White oval panel and the Layering Oval Framelits for the scalloped oval.

Here is another idea

DSC_0006

I punched the balloon out with the Balloon Bouquet Punch using Red Glimmer Paper. Black and White is so striking and so simple!

Another Wild About Flowers Card and Sale-a-bration 2nd Release

DSC_0003

I am still making cards for a friend and thought I would show you one that I made for her. I am using retired Designer Series Paper in this sample but you could easily substitute with current paper Stampin’Up! offers. I will post a recommendation in my supply list.

DSC_0006

I just love the Layering Circle Thinlits, they come with scalloped edge and regular edge framelits. I used Gold Foil cardstock for the scallop edge layer. I added a little gold heart to the Whisper White panel from the Metallic Enamel Shapes collection.

DSC_0002

The cardstock color is Rose Red but just coordinate the color with the color in the DSP you decide to use. That is what is great about Stampin’Up! everything is color coordinated for you. The Stampin’Pad for the flower is also Rose Red. I cut the Rose Red banner that goes down the center of the card with the Triple Banner Punch. I made the banner that happy birthday is stamped on using paper snips to cut the ends into a banner shape. This banner size was too small for the Triple Banner Punch.

Here are the sizes for the Triple Banner Punch

I think this card would be beautiful with the Berry Burst Stampin’Pad and cardstock. I just didn’t happen to have that color but it is my top pick for you guys if you want to make this card. Just use the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack (pictured below) for the Designer Series Paper.

Isn’t the Berry Burst color beautiful! This is the cardstock pictured above. This is from the 2017-19 Incolor collection and you can buy an assortment pack of cardstock as well as the single color pack.

More Bubble Over Fun!

DSC_0007

I know it is time to move on to another stamp set, but this one is so much fun! I have been playing with this stamp set again and thought I would show you what I came up with.  Colorful isn’t it?  I think this one is a great celebration card! It could be for graduation, birthday, retirement you name it!

dsc_0009.jpg

I added bubbles using the Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes. This along with the Bubble Over Bundle are found in the Occasions Catalog.

DSC_0010

Love the bottle caps! So many details you can add with the framelits! The Designer Series Paper is FREE from the Sale-a-bration Brochure with a qualifying purchase of $50 (before shipping and tax).

Here is another idea

DSC_0011

This is a quick card! I cut the bottles from the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series paper using the coordinating die (they are designed to work together). I stamped the bubbles with Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’Pad on cardstock of the same color.

DSC_0018

DSC_0012

I hope you enjoyed my cards and they inspire you to CREATE! Don’t forget, it is still Sale-a-bration time! Stampin’Up!’s best promotion of the year! The Bubble Over Bundle is $40.50 so just if you add $9.50 more in product ( which believe me is easy to do) you can get the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper for FREE, an $11.00 value.

Bubble Over Bundle

DSC_0014

This is a colorful card isn’t it? So bright and kinda sassy! This card is made with the new Bubble Over Bundle from the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalog. The bundle includes the Bubble Over Photopolymer Stamp set and the Bottles and Bubbles Framelits Dies.  You save 10% when you buy the bundle but you can purchase them individually.

DSC_0015

Don’t you just love the details in this bundle? There is a framelit to cut the bottle tops out! I used silver foil cardstock for the bottle tops. I used the Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes, also sold in the Occasions Catalog, to accent the small bubbles. I used some sequins to enhance the larger bubbles. I am often inspired by other stampers and the inspiration for this card from Vicky Wright’s card, she is a Stampin’Up Demonstrator in Australia.

DSC_0013

The Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper is FREE with a $50 (before shipping and tax) purchase because it is a Sale-a-bration offering.

The bottles were cut out with the appropriate framelit and then colored by running the sponge brayer over the stamp pad and then over the bottle in a back and forth motion.

I hope you like my card and it inspires you to CREATE!

Lots of Lavender by Stampin’Up!

DSC_0001

What do you think? Isn’t this bouquet of lavender beautiful? This stamp set is a photopolymer set called Lots of Lavender. It is a FREE stamp set you get with a qualifying purchase. You can see it in the Sale-a-bration brochure here.

I “fussy” cut the bouquet of lavender out with the paper snips and mounted it on the Whisper White panel using Stampin’Dimensionals. The square shape was cut out using the Big Shot and the square framelit from the Stitched Shapes Framelits collection.

;ots of lavender

Lots of Lavender #147194 Images copyright Stampin’Up!

The cool thing about this stamp set is the solid images. They will color the leaves and the flowers, just stamp the outline image in Archival Black ink. Then ink up the solid image and stamp over it. I used Wisteria Wonder Stampin’Pad for the flower and Pear Pizazz for the leaves.

DSC_0003

I added a gold metallic circle shape to the right and left corner. The ribbon is stamped with Sahara Sand Stampin’Pad. I added a panel of Wisteria Wonder Cardstock under the square shape.

DSC_0002

The very last thing I added was the greeting on the card and of course I stamped it crooked! I hate when that happens. The greeting stamp is an old retired stamp that is wood mount so it was hard to line up because you can’t see through the block.

Party Pandas by Stampin’Up!

DSC_0013

Isn’t he the cutest little Panda? This is the most adorable stamp set! It comes in wood mount or clear mount, and it is FREE with a qualifying order! I used paper from the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper that is also FREE with a qualifying order.

DSC_0014

The banner is made with Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock using the Banner Triple Punch. There is a little design in the DSP that has the Lemon Lime Twist color in it so I just went with that. This stamp set comes with 3 greeting stamps! Love it! These cards are bright and cheery!

Here are some with a black and white theme, perfect since this ties in with the Panda!

DSC_0002

Striking isn’t it? Just simple black and white with a splash of red! Don’t you love the Happy Birthday font?

DSC_0010

Here is a different idea using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to make a tag. Again keeping with the black and white color scheme with a splash of red. The Designer Series Paper is retired but there are 3 different Designer Series paper in the Annual Catalog and Occasions Catalog with a black and white design. I will list at least one of them in the supply list.
