Relaxing with Paradise Palms for the Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop-January 2023

Hello fellow stampers! You are visiting with Theresa McEntee-author of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. I am hopping with the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop today. There are several of us- you will find the list to follow the hop at the end of my blog post.

The Ink & Inspiration Challenge is both an image and a color challenge. I was inspired by the feeling of warmth and peace in the image. I could picture myself relaxing on the beach with the waves rolling in. The colors were also very inspirational and add to the feeling of peace and warmth.

I had the idea of using the Window Sheets to stamp some palms on in black to be in the shade. This created a feeling of depth to my card. I had never used the Window Sheets in this way. It was very fun to create something different! The images are from the Paradise Palms stamp set.

Here is how the card looks with the Window Sheet layer opened up. Several colors were used to create the scene. These included Tahitian Tide, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Mango Melody. The colors were applied with the Blending Brushes.

  7. Dry overnight. Or use the Heat Tool to speed up the drying process.

Step 3- Assembling the Card

  1. Use the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the Seaside Bay Dies to cut one large & one small algae from the center of the Shaded Spruce Textured Shimmer Paper. C

Quick & Easy Something Fancy Thank You Card for Kylie & Bruno Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop-January 2023

Hello! Thank you for visiting today to see this Quick & Easy Something Fancy Thank You Card!

Welcome to the Kylie & Bruno Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop for January 2023. I’m Theresa with Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. I am so glad you are joining me today! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world. We are taking part in training to help us build a successful Stampin’ Up! business. Today’s card will be my customer Thank You card for anyone ordering from my Online Store in January. This blog hop is also full of ideas and creative inspiration! Be sure to visit everyone’s blog by clicking on the links at the end of my blog.

This Quick & Easy Something Fancy Thank You Card is made using the awesome Fancy Flora 6 x 6 inch Designer Series Paper. The “Thank You” sentiment is part of a must-have sentiment set Something Fancy. The Something Fancy stamp set has sentiments for a variety of common card themes!

The beauty of the Quick & Easy Something Fancy Thank You Card is that you can use a variety of the Stampin’ Up! colors. TIP: The coordinating colors are always listed on the back of the package of Designer Series Paper. The colors for the Fancy Flora DSP that I chose are: Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, Orchid Oasis, Fresh Freesia & Calypso Coral.

Measurements

  • Basic White card stock (cs) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches
  • Basic White cs: 2 x 2 inches for the sentiment
  • Colored cs: 3 3/4 x 5 inches & 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches
  • Fancy Flora DSP: 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches

Supplies

  • Stylish Shapes Dies
  • Iridescent Pastel Gems
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine or Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
  • Multipurpose Liquid Glue
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Take Your Pick Tool (for moving the gems)

This version of my Quick & Easy Something Fancy Thank You Card is done with Orchid Oasis cs.

Instructions

  1. Stamp the “Thank You” sentiment in Orchid Oasis Ink onto the
    2 x 2 inch Basic White cs.
  2. Use the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the second to the smallest stitched square die in the Stylish Shapes Dies to die cut the sentiment.
  3. Adhere the Fancy Flora DSP to the Orchid Oasis cs. Then adhere the panel to the front of the Basic White cs card base.
  4. Use glue to adhere the 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 inch Orchid Oasis cs square to the sentiment at a slight angle. Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the card front.

Now for some Bling! The Iridescent Pastel Gems come in 3 colors-Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral and Gold. I used 3 of the Balmy Blue gems around the sentiment to add a little sparkle!

Voila!

Use a variety of the designs in the Fancy Flora DSP along with different colors of card stock to create your own set of the Quick & Easy Something Fancy Thank You Card!

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Gallery-January 2023: Two-Tone Flora & Something Fancy Thank You

I am so excited to be participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight Gallery with my Two-Tone & Something Fancy Thank You card, along with Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world! The theme for this Gallery is “Thank You”.

We often forget those simple words – “Thank you”. However, it really is important to show your appreciation to the people in your life who have helped you or inspired you in some way. And don’t forget those who have supported you. Be sure to send a handmade thank you card to express your appreciation often. Spread joy! We really need more joy in the world today!

This thank you card spotlights the Two-Tone Flora stamp set, Two-Tone Flora Dies, Something Fancy stamp set & Something Fancy Dies, The Embossing Folder is the new Cane Weave 3D. The cool geometric paper is the Dandy Designs 12 x 12 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP), FREE during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order. The current Host Code is MBR2U6TN.

Measurements

  • Basic White card stock (cs) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches
  • Basic White cs: 2 x 2 inches (to stamp & die cut the sentiment),
    3 x 3 inches (to die-cut the stitched circle) and enough scrap to stamp all of the images on
  • Calypso Coral cs: 4 x 5 1/4 inches
  • Petal Pink cs: 1 1/4 x 3 3/4 inches (to die cut the banner) and
    2 1/4 x 5 1/8 inches
  • Dandy Designs DSP: 2 x 5 inches

Supplies

Instructions

  • I recommend using the Stamparatus for Two-Step Stamping. I find it is much easier to line up the second stamp. Each flower is a Two-Step Stamp. Stamp the larger part of the flower in Petal Pink Ink first. Then stamp the detailed stamp in Calypso Coral. The small bunch of flowers is stamped in Fresh Freesia Ink first. Then stamped in Blackberry Bliss Ink. Use the Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Marker to draw the center of each of the Petal Pink flowers.
  • Next, stamp the “Thank You” sentiment in Blackberry Bliss Ink. Die cut the sentiment using the Something Fancy Dies.
  • Use the Stylish Shapes Dies to die cut the 2 1/2 inch stitched circle and the banner.
  • Use the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to emboss the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Calypso Coral cs with the Cane Weave Embossing Folder
  • Adhere the Cane Weave card piece to the front of the Basic White cs card base.
  • Adhere the Dandy Designs DSP to the 2 1/4 x 5 1/8 inch Petal Pink cs. Then adhere this to the left side of the card front.
  • Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment.
  • Adhere the Petal Pink cs banner. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Basic White cs stitched circle.
  • Place the flowers as desired. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals on some flowers. Add the leaves.
  • Color the White Seam Binding Ribbon with the Dark Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Marker. Tie into a bow. Adhere to the card front with a Mini Glue Dot.

Bling! Use the Adhesive-Backed Milky Dots in Petal Pink to add Bling! to the card front.

Voila!

Experiment with different colors to see which one you like best!

Stampin’ Up! Love Cats Valentine-simple and fast

Hello fellow stampers! I have a very simple and cute Love Cats Valentine’s card today. The stamp set is Love Cats from the Stampin’ Up! 2023 January-April Mini Catalog! You can start purchasing product from the Mini Catalog today! You can order from my Online Store HERE!

Measurements

  • Basic White card stock (cs) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches
  • Basic White cs: 2 3/4 x 4 inches
  • Melon Mambo cs: 3 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches
  • Flirty Flamingo cs: 3 x 4 1/4 inches
  • Dandy Designs 12 x 12 inch Designer Series Paper: 4 x 5 1/4 inches (FREE with $100 order during Sale-a-bration!)

Supplies

  • Love Cats stamp set
  • Stamparatus
  • Memento Black Ink
  • Melon Mambo Ink
  • Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker
  • Opaque Adhesive-Backed Gems
  • Scotch Tape
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Instructions

  1. I strongly recommend using the Stamparatus for the cat. Stamping solid images is much easier when you use the Stamparatus because you can re-stamp several times to get a nice solid black color.
  2. Cover the little heart with a piece of scotch tape before you apply the Memento Black Ink. Remove the piece of tape before stamping onto the 2 3/4 x 4 inch Basic White cs. Repeat as many times as you need to in order to get a nice black cat.
  3. Then use the Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker to apply ink to the little heart. Stamp and repeat until dark enough.
  4. Stamp the sentiment with the Melon Mambo Ink.
  5. Remove the paper from the Stamparatus.
  6. Stamp the sentiment “Hi there, VALENTINE” on the inside panel of the Basic White cs card base.
  7. Adhere the Dandy Designs DSP to the front panel of the Basic White cs card base.
  8. Adhere the stamped cat card piece to the Flirty Flamingo cs.
  9. Adhere the Melon Mambo card piece to the front of the card.
  10. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Flirty Flamingo cs/stamped cat card piece to the card front.
  11. Add the Melon Mambo Opaque Adhesive-Backed Gems as desired. Bling!

Voila!

This is a simple and quick Valentine’s card! Be sure to look through the Stampin’ Up! 2023 January-April Mini Catalog and place your order starting today- January 5, 2023. Round up to the next $50 so you can choose a Sale-a-bration Reward for FREE! Sale-a-bration ends February 28,2023.
