Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop- October 2021 Mystery Stamping Thank You Card*

I have an exciting card to share for Bruno and Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop today that was a Mystery Stamping I participated in. I will explain more about that in a minute.

Thank you for joining me today for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop! The Demonstrator Training Program is for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators all over the world who are working towards bettering their business. Be sure to visit all the blogs and see all the different Thank You cards from around the world! I know you will get lots of ideas and creative inspiration! If you wish to become a Stampin’ up! Demonstrator please let me know by commenting on this post or sending me an email at theresastreasures.az@gmail.com Now for the card:

Mystery Stamping is when you are given the measurements for the pieces and then you get “clues” on how to put the card together without knowing what the card looks like. So fun!!

*This card is compliments of Lorraine Masters-Green, who I believe got the idea from Sharon Armstrong.

Clue #1 Card Recipe & Supplies:

1. Colored Card Stock (CS) Color A (ex. Misty Moonlight): 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score at 4 1/4 inches, 4 x 5 1/4 inches, and 2 1/8 x 2 1/8 inches.

2. Colored CS Color B (ex. Just Jade): 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches

3. Basic White CS: 3 1/4 inches x 3 1/4 inches, and a scrap for the sentiment and image.

4. Designer Series Paper (DSP): 5 coordinating pieces 1 x 1 inch (can be different or 2 of one pattern and 3 of another). My DSP is from the Pattern Party DSP in the Annual Catalog.

5. Sentiment stamp and punch or die to cut it out.

6. Image stamp or dies to cut an image from DSP to fit on 2 1/8 x 2 1/8 inch Color A CS piece. I used Simply Succulents for my image and my sentiment.

7. Ink, embossing folder, adhesive, dimensionals. and embellishments.

Clue # 2- The card is in a portrait orientation.

The remaining clues are the directions on how to put the pieces together. The fun part is that you don’t know what the card is supposed to look like until you are done! It is a blast!

If you need the remaining clues for this card, just leave a comment or send me an email and I will send them to you.

Voila! After you follow all of the clues you have a fun Thank You card. Since I had so much fun making this card, I decided to use it as a thank you note to my September customers.

Kylie’s Stampin’ Up!® International Blog Highlights Gallery- October 2021- Love of Leaves and Color & Contour Fall Thank You card

Hello and welcome to Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts today! I have a beautiful fall card made with Stampin’ Up!® Love of Leaves and Color & Contour stamp sets. Stampin’ Up! has several colors that are perfect for fall! You will find everything you need in the Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

Today I am taking part in Kylie Bertucci’s Monthly International Blog Highlights Gallery. The theme is- Thank You. In this gallery, you can see thank you cards made by people from all over the world! I hope you enjoy my card and take the time to see everyone else’s inspiring creations by visiting the gallery. You can get to the gallery by selecting the Vote For Me button at the end of this blog. Please stop by and vote for my card.

I am Theresa and I am a Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. If you do not have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, live in the US, and would like a copy of the catalog, please send a request to my email: theresastreasures.az@gmail.com. I would love to help you get started on stamping and making you own cards!

Making the card-Stamping

The first step in making this card is to stamp all of the leaves from the Love of Leaves stamp set onto Basic White Card Stock (CS). The Stampin’ Up! ink colors for the leaves are: Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody and Cajun Craze. Next stamp the flowers from the Color & Contour stamp set onto Basic White CS. The outline of the flowers is inked in Cajun Craze. The flower color is Mango Melody.

Coordinating Dies

Now you can use the coordinating dies for the Love of Leaves stamp set- the Stitched Leaves Dies. These dies both cut and emboss! You can see the embossed stitching on each of the leaves. The upper edge of the background is embossed with one of the dies in this set.

To make the flowers more 3D, I used the round end of the cap on the Take Your Pick Tool to apply gentle pressure to the back of the flowers. This makes them more puffy.

Arranging the Pieces

Now that you have all the pieces, you can arrange them how you like. First adhere the Mango Melody background onto a Cajun Craze CS card base. Lay the leaves down on the card front first until you like the look. Then add the flowers. Next, adhere everything in place. Add the Genial Gems as desired to the flower center for extra sparkle.

The sentiment is stamped in Cajun Craze ink onto a 1/2 inch Basic White CS strip. Add the sentiment to your card.

Viola! You have a beautiful fall Thank You card! Feel free to decorate the inside of the card too!

Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop- September 2021 Thank You Cards with the Alcohol Technique

Thank you for joining me today for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop! I am so excited to show you a Thank You card made using the Alcohol Technique with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers by Stampin’ Up!®. The markers are available in the 2021-22 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. Be sure to visit all the blogs and see all the different Thank You cards from around the world! I know you will get lots of ideas and creative inspiration!

The theme for the cards today is: Thank You. I am so grateful to have customers who support me. The following set of cards is for my fabulous customers who ordered during the last 3 months.

The Alcohol Technique with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers is so much fun! My sister was visiting and I let her try it. She had a ball! This card is made with Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy. This card is a regular A2 size card. I will not be describing the technique here, I did describe it in detail on my blog from September 6, 2021. The sentiment label comes from the Tasteful Labels Dies.

I will show you a lot of examples of my thank you cards. I used 2 stamp sets for the “Thank You” sentiment. The larger “Thank You” is from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set. The small “Thanks” is in the From All Of Us stamp set. These cards are all from the Basic White Notecards and Envelopes #159232. Colors used include: Fresh Freesia with Blackberry Bliss, Misty Moonlight with Night of Navy and Rich Razzleberry alone (I just realized the Rich Razzleberry is retired, sorry).

These are both note cards as well. The one on the left is with Bermuda Bay and Misty Moonlight. The card on the right is with Blackberry Bliss and Rich Razzleberry.

I used the Stitched Triangle Dies to create the notecard on the right. Misty Moonlight and Night of Navy help create the card on the right.

So as you can see, each time you do the Alcohol Technique is turns out to be unique!

Stampin’ Up!® #SimpleStamping Birthday With Amaryllis Abloom

This lovely birthday card is actually very simple to make with the Amaryllis Abloom stamp set. This set is available when you Host a Party and reach a sales goal of $150 USD. If you would like to host an online Stampin’ Up! party, let me know at theresastreasures.az@gmail.com

Stamping

The card base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Poppy Parade card stock that is scored at 4 1/4 inches. Fold the card base in half at the score line. Use Poppy Parade ink to stamp the images randomly over the front panel.

Next stamp onto a 2 1/2 x 4 inch Basic White cardstock. Start with the amaryllis. Use Garden Green for the leaves and stem and Poppy Parade for the amaryllis. Place the stamp on the ink pad carefully so that the Poppy Parade ink is only on the amaryllis and the Garden Green ink is only on the stem and leaves. Huff on it to moisten the ink and then stamp. Remember to use your Stampin’ Pierce Mat since this is a Photopolymer stamp to get the best stamped images.

Add a “Happy Birthday” sentiment. This one is from the Pansy Patch stamp set, but you could use any “Happy Birthday” sentiment. Add the diamond design under the sentiment with Garden Green ink.

Stamp a design onto a 5 1/4 x 4 inch Basic White card stock for the inside panel.

Assembling the card

Adhere the stamped Basic White card stock card piece to the center of the front of the Poppy Parade card base. Adhere the inside panel to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base.

Viola! This is a great #simplestamping card! I hope you give it a try.

If you are interested in earning this set, please send me an email and we can get you set up to host an online party with your friends. Contact me at theresastreasures.az@gmail.com

About the Daisy Punch Fall Thank You card

Fall is one of my favorite times of year. I just love all of the rich colors which inspired me to make this Daisy Punch Fall Thank You card. I made this card with the following Stampin’ Up! colors: Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Old Olive. The Regals Designer Series Paper Stack which contains all of these colors is great for the background. The strips each measure 3/8 inch in width.

You also will see several embellishments I used to make the Daisy Punch Fall Thank You card extra special. The vintage Diamond Weave Ribbon #156507 and the Brushed Metallic Dots #156506 can be found in the 2021 Stampin Up! July-December Mini Catalog. The colorful sequins are from the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins #152477 and can be found in the Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

Viola! Such a lovely combination of fall colors in this Daisy Punch Fall Thank You card!

Cardz4Guyz Challenge #278- Things With Tails and Stampin’ Up!® Turtle Friends with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Technique

I have such an exciting and fun card to share today! The cute Turtle Friends stamp set and Turtle Punch come together with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Technique for this cute card.

Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Technique

What you will need to do this technique is 99% Isopropyl Alcohol, a plastic dish for the alcohol, a paint brush, a straw, vellum card stock and the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. I recommend the Stampin’ Up! brand of vellum because it is thicker than the other brand I tried. The thicker vellum doesn’t curl as much when it dries.

I cut my vellum card stock to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. Using a light, medium and dark color of Stampin’ Blends Marker, I randomly colored in blotches to fill the paper. Here I am using Dark Fresh Freesia, Dark Highland Heather and Dark Blackberry Bliss. (For the turtle card, I used Dark Pool Party, Dark Bermuda Bay and Dark Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers.)

I filled in the spaces for this piece with the Dark Misty Moonlight. Next, dip the paint brush in the dish with the alcohol in it, and then dab it onto the vellum card stock. You can blow through the straw to help the alcohol spread, making neat patterns with the ink. I used my Stampin’ Up! Heat Tool to spread the alcohol and also to dry it. Use the low setting so you don’t melt the vellum.

When the vellum card stock is dried, use a glue stick or spread the Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue in a thin continuous layer on the back. Adhere to a piece of Basic White Card Stock. Now you just get the other basic pieces for a card together and Viola! you have a fun and cool card!

Back to the Turtle Card

The Scalloped Contour Dies make the waves on the Vellum Alcohol Technique card piece, as well as on a 5 x 1 1/2 inch Misty Moonlight Card Stock piece. These were adhered together slightly layered, then adhered to a 5 x 3 3/4 inch Pool Party Card Stock embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. Next, the Pool Party card piece was adhered to the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Misty Moonlight Card Stock. To finish, adhere the Misty Moonlight/Pool Party card piece to the front of a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch Basic White Card Stock card base.

Now for the turtles. The images were stamped onto Basic White Card Stock in Memento ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers in Dark Pool Party, Light Bermuda Bay and Light Misty Moonlight. Bermuda Bay ink was used to stamp the turtle’s shell. The little bird and the “Happy Birthday” sentiment were stamped in Misty Moonlight ink. I used a scrap of the Alcohol Technique card piece on the inside.

Add a few blue rhinestones from the Holiday Basic Rhinestone Jewels and Viola! You have a fun and cute birthday card for your favorite little guy!

Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s Top 10 International Blog Highlight Winners Hop August 2021- Gorgeous Leaves Thank You

I am so honored and excited to be participating in today’s Top 10 Winners Hop for Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights! I thank everyone who voted for my card in that hop. I combined a lot of elements to make this Gorgeous Leaves Thank You card. Saying “Thank you” is so important! You can never have enough Thank You cards. I am so excited to see everyone else’s projects too!

I primarily used the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set and Intricate Leaves Dies. Additional stamp sets used for this card included: Very Versailles (the background script) and Pansy Patch (Thank You sentiment). The label for the sentiment is from the Harvest Dies.

I took full advantage on the many fall colors Stampin’ Up!® has. The colors I used for this card are: Bumblebee, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Cinnamon Cider, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.

Although they are difficult to see in this photo, the Genial Gems add a little sparkle to the Gorgeous Leaves Thank You card.

Thank you so much for visiting today! You are currently at Theresa McEntee/Theresa’s Treasures. Please visit all the inspiring ideas today.

Thank You Card for Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop- August 2021 with Daisy Garden by Stampin’ Up!®

Thank you for joining me today for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop! I am so excited to show you a Thank You card made with product from the 2021-2022 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog! Be sure to visit all the blogs and see all the different Thank You cards from around the world! I know you will get lots of ideas and creative inspiration!

The theme for the cards today is: Thank You. I am grateful to have customers who support me and I send them a Thank You card every once in awhile. The following set of cards is for my fabulous customers who ordered during the summer.

I really enjoyed making this card using Embossing and the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers.

Embossing

I chose the Evening Evergreen Card Stock as my background because I wanted a nice contrast. The first step is to stamp the Daisy Garden stamp onto the Evening Evergreen CS with Versamark ink and use the White Emboss Powder. Be sure to let the powder cool after using the Heat Tool. You don’t want the melted Emboss Powder to smear when you try to color the daisies. I ended up just coloring the flowers. When I colored the stems, it did not really show up well.

Coloring

This is a close up of my coloring. I applied the Light Polished Pink Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers to the entire flower. Then I used the Dark Polished Pink around the center of the flowers. I used the Light Polished Pink again to blend the colors together.

I experimented with several different colors for these daisies.

The sentiment is from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set.

Viola! You have a fairly quick and simple Thank You card.

The Paper Players Color Challenge PP553

Today’s blog is a card I created for The Paper Players Color Challenge PP553 using Real Red, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight. All very festive Holiday colors in my mind!

I choose to use the Happy Holly-Days stamp set from the 2021 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog which is currently available for you to order from. You may order from my Online Store here.

The background of the Very Vanilla Card Stock (CS) is embossed with the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder. The background right behind the bird is stamped with the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set onto a Very Vanilla CS oval. The oval dies are from my stash. I distressed the edges of the Old Olive CS oval.

I used the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers combined with the Stampin’ Write Watercolor Markers to color the images. The bird is colored in Real Red as are the berries for the holly. The yellow is Daffodil Delight and the green is Old Olive.

I hope you stop by The Paper Players to see all of the entries for this color challenge PP553. I really enjoyed the challenge!

The background is the Harvest Meadow 12 x 12 inch Designer Series Paper #156494 which was embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder #156505 on a Very Vanilla Card Stock (CS) card base. I used the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut the Cork 12 x 12 Specialty Paper #156393. The cork card piece behind the sentiment is the center of the rectangle frame. A Cinnamon Cider CS Stitched Rectangle is the background for the flowers. The flowers and sentiment are stamped in the Saddle Brown Stazon Ink so that I could use the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers for coloring. The colors of the Stampin’ Blends are: Light Pumpkin Pie, Dark So Saffron and Light Soft Succulent.
