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!

Trees for Sale Whimsical Christmas Card

Instructions for the Trees for Sale Whimsical Christmas Card

Step 1- 3D Technique

  1. Start by using the White Craft Ink pad to drag it across both Shaded Spruce card stock card pieces embossed with the Whimsical Woodland 3D embossing folder. The “before and after” is pictured above. The White Craft Ink really helps the tree design pop! Set aside to dry.

Step 2-Stamping with Stampin’ Up! Masking Paper

  1. Take the center out of both of the Basic White card stock Fabulous Frame die cuts to stamp on.
  2. Use Soft Suede Ink to stamp the “trees for sale” sign on one of the Basic White card stock card pieces. Stamp a sign on a piece of the Masking Paper. (I used a pink sticky note so you could see what I was masking a little better)
  3. Fussy cut the sign from the Masking Paper. Cover the trees for sale sign on the stamped card piece with the Masking Paper sign.
  4. Use Mint Macaron Ink to stamp the solid small and medium sized trees.
  5. Stamp a small tree on the Masking Paper and fussy cut it.
  6. Use Shaded Spruce to stamp the detailed tree on the small tree only.
  7. Cover the small tree with the tree you cut from the Masking Paper.

Step 3-More Masking

  1. Use Shaded Spruce ink to stamp the detailed tree on all the medium trees.
  2. Remove the Masking Paper from the small tree and the Trees for Sale sign.

Step 4-Stamping the Scene

  1. Use Memento Ink to stamp the string of lights. Color the lights with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers.
  2. Stamp some snowflakes and the paw prints in Balmy Blue Ink.
  3. On a scrap of Basic White card stock, stamp the dog in Soft Suede Ink. Use the Stampin’ Write Basic Black Marker to add some eyes, a nose and some spots to the dog. Fussy cut. (I cut the bottom jaw off because my dog did not look right with the jaw on)
  4. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the dog to the scene.
  5. Stamp the sentiment “Christmas Greetings” in Real Red Ink on the 3/4 x 3 inch Basic White card stock strip.

Step 5-Stamping the Inside

  1. On the second Basic White card stock Fabulous Frame die cut, stamp “so very merry” in Real Red Ink.
  2. Stamp the snowflakes in Balmy Blue Ink.

Step 6-Assembling the Inside

  1. Assemble the inside of the card. Adhere one of the Shaded Spruce card stock embossed with the Whimsical Woodland embossing folder to the inside of the Mint Macaron card stock card base.
  2. Adhere the stamped Basic White card stock.
  3. Complete the inside by adhering the Real Red card stock Fabulous Frame die cut.

Step 7-Assembling the Card Front

  1. Adhere the second embossed Shaded Spruce card stock card piece to the front of the Mint Macaron card stock card base.
  2. Adhere the stamped Basic White card stock scene to the card front.
  3. Add the Real Red card stock Fabulous Frame die cut.
  4. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment.
  5. Embellish with the Real Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Voila!

Fun Fold Friday: Stampin’ Up!® Blessings of Home and Slim Line Sayings

Hello! Yay for Friday! I have a nice Fun Fold card for you today using both the Blessings of Home and Slim Line Sayings stamp sets. The Heart & Home Designer Series Paper (DSP) really adds a beautiful touch.

I recommend trying to cut this card out with plain paper first. It took a couple of tries for me to get it the way I wanted. Hopefully you’ll get it on the first go around!

Measurements

Blessings of Home and Slim Line Sayings You Are Fabulous Fun Fold Card

  • Night of Navy Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 11 inches
  • Night of Navy CS: 2 3/8 x 3 1/2 inches
  • Misty Moonlight CS: 3 1/8 x 5 1/4 inch
  • Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inch, 3 1/8 x 5 1/4 inches, and a label from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies
  • Heart & Home DSP: 3 1/8 x 5 1/4 inches

Ink: Night of Navy and Misty Moonlight

Preparing the Card Base

First make a score line at 3 3/8 and 7 5/8 inches. Then make a small notch on the horizontal axis at 1 1/8 and 9 7/8 inches, and on the vertical axis at 1 3/4 inches on each side.

Next make a cut between the score line and notch on the upper part of the card base bilaterally. Finally, cut between the 1 3/4 inch notch on the side and the notch on the bottom bilaterally.

Preparing the Front Panels

I found it easiest to make a pattern to use for this piece. Make a notch on the 3 1/8 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS 1 5/8 inches down the right-hand side and 1 1/8 inches in on the bottom from the right. Use this to cut the 3 1/8 x 5 1/4 inch Heart & Home DSP.

To make the other side, flip the pattern over. Note: This isn’t critical with a solid color, but would be if you were using a DSP on both panels. Cut the 3 1/8 x 5 1/4 inch Misty Moonlight CS. Then run this piece through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Hive 3D Embossing Folder.

Stamping

Using the Misty Moonlight Ink Stamp Off once, then stamp the bunch of flowers from the Blessing of Home stamp set onto the label. Use the Night of Navy Ink to stamp the sentiment “You Really Are FABULOUS” onto the label. The sentiment is from the Slim Sayings stamp set.

Use the Misty Moonlight, Stamping Off once, to stamp the larger flowers onto the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. Then use the Night of Navy Ink to stamp the sentiment. This sentiment is in the Blessings of Home stamp set.

Assembling the Card

This is the back side of the card. Adhere the embossed Misty Moonlight CS to the left side and the Heart & Home DSP on the right.

Turn the card base over and adhere the inside panel.

Now adhere the sentiment label to the 2 3/8 x 3 1/2 inch Night of Navy CS. Place the sentiment label on the front of the card for placement.

Holding the sentiment in place, open the card. Draw a line with a pencil to mark the edge of the front of the card. Place Stampin’ Dimensionals where the label will adhere to the card front. Adhere the sentiment to the front of the card base.

Add some Bumblebee Trinkets and Voila! you have a fabulous card for someone fabulous!

Thank you for being so fabulous and visiting my blog. Have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend!

Stamping

Stamp the bird image in Sahara Sand Ink onto the 3 x 3 1/2 inch Basic White CS. Then stamp the holly image 3 times onto the 2 3/4 x 5 1/2 inch Basic White CS.

Next stamp the holly image 2 times onto the corners of the 2 3/4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. Then stamp the sentiment in Mossy Meadow Ink. Also in Mossy Meadow Ink, stamp the sentiment “Happy Christmas” onto the 3/4 x 3 1/2 inch Basic White CS (not shown).

Coloring With Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers

I love the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers because you can blend the colors and create beautiful images. My bird doesn’t look as realistic as some, but I am satisfied with the results. I learned to use the Dark Blend first for small areas to create shadows. Then blend in the Light color. The colors here are: Dark Daffodil Delight, Dark Basic Black, and the Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Real Red and Mossy Meadow.

The same procedure, Dark Blend first followed by the Light, is followed for the holly images.

Fussy cut the bird and holly. Also fussy cut the “Happy Christmas” sentiment (not shown).

Tip: Sometimes it is very difficult to cut exactly and not have any white edge. I just use the Light Blend along the outer edge to hide the white.

Assembling the Card

Adhere the inside sentiment and the embossed Crumb Cake CS strip to the inside of the Mossy Meadow CS card base. Adhere the 2 x 5 1/2 inch Real Red CS to the front of the card base.

Now with Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere the Gold Brushed Metallic CS scalloped rectangle to the card front. Follow by adhering the bird with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the center of the back of the holly leaves. Adhere as desired under the bird. To finish, adhere the sentiment “Happy Christmas” under the Gold scalloped rectangle.

Add some Wonderful Gems to make the card front sparkle a little more.

Voila! You have a very festive Happy Christmas card!

I am submitting this card to the #sucolorchallenge and to my Glimmer Gals Team page for our color challenge as well. I hope you enjoyed Day 9 of the 12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge. See you tomorrow with card #10!

Stampin’® Up! Great Tidings Religious Christmas Card

I am on Day 7 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. Today’s card is a Stampin’ Up!® Great Tidings Religious Christmas Card. Each day of this challenge my blog will focus on a new holiday card. The challenge goes until December 10, 2021. I plan to showcase a different stamp set with each card. This will allow you plenty of time to see the great products that are available in the 2021 Stampin’ Up! July to December Mini Catalog, and to order in time to make your own Christmas cards! You can order HERE when you have your list ready!

Many of the products in the Stampin’ Up! July-December Mini Catalog will be retiring at the end of December. If you really want something, order now because products are “while supplies last”. Get more information on the “Last Chance” products HERE

I really like how colorful this Great Tidings Religious Christmas card turned out to be. The Wise Men Tidings Dies and the Gold Brushed Metallic Card Stock really make this card shine!

Measurements

Great Tidings Religious Christmas Card

  • Night of Navy Card Stock (CS) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches scored at 5 1/2 inches.
  • Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches, 4 x 4 inches, and a 1/2 inch strip that is at least 3 inches long.
  • Gold Brushed Metallic CS: 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches.

Stamping

Use Memento Ink to stamp one each of the Three Kings onto the 4 x 4 inch Basic White CS.

Use Night of Navy Ink to stamp the sentiment “Wise men still seek Him” onto a 1/2 x 3 inch strip of Basic White CS. Also stamp, in Night of Navy Ink, the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS with the sentiment “Sending Peace & Joy to you”, the 3 Gifts and the Star.

Use Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers to color the Three Kings. For skin color, I used the Light and Dark Cinnamon Cider, and Ivory. Additionally, I used the Light and Dark of: Bermuda Bay, Just Jade, Daffodil Delight, Blackberry Bliss and Night of Navy for the Kings’ dress. I shadowed the turban with Light Smoky Slate. Later I used Dark Poppy Parade for the gem in the turban and the jewel on the cloak of the middle King. Note: These are not the traditional colors for the Three Kings. Going left to right is Gaspar, Balthazar and Melchior.

Three Wise Men Dies and Hammered Metal Embossing Folder

The Three Wise Men Dies really help make the Great Tidings Religious Christmas Card shine. First die cut the Dome, placing the top of the die about 3/4 inch from the top edge and using the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Use the dies for the Star and the Town of Bethlehem to diecut from the left over dome piece. Save the remainder of the dome cut out for future use. Tip: This is a great way to make the Gold Brushed Metallic CS last longer- use every scrap!

Use the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder in the Stampin Cut & Emboss Machine for the texture on the 5 3/8 x 4 1/ 8 inch Gold Brushed Metallics CS card piece.

Assembling the Card

Adhere the inside card piece to the inside panel of the Night of Navy CS card base.
