Stampin’ Up!® Angels of Peace Christmas Card

Today’s card is the Stampin’ Up!® Angels of Peace Christmas Card for Day 3 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge”!

Peace on Earth! I would really like to see more of that. As I said above, I am on Day 3 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. I will be blogging a new holiday card each day 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 Catalog and order it in time to make your own Christmas cards! You can order HERE when you have your list ready!

Disclaimer: This is a somewhat advanced card as there are several steps before you can put the card together. I used the Silver Emboss Powder, the Blending Brushes, Watercolor Pencils, the Wink of Stella, and the Metallic Mesh Ribbon in creating this fabulous card! I went through many different versions of this card before deciding on the final one.

This card will be submitted to The Paper Players PP569 Sketch Challenge.

Here is what you need to emboss: Silver Emboss Powder-Metallics, Versamark and the Heat Tool.

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: 3 x 5 inches and a 3/8 x 3 7/8 inch strip.
  • Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper (DSP): one 1 7/8 x 12 inch piece of the trees and night sky design. First cut a 5 1/8 inch piece with the tree on it. Then cut the remaining DSP into a 5 inch piece. Cut that piece at 2 1/2 inches to make two small rectangles. Trim 1/8 inch off the length on each piece. You will also need a 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch piece of the night sky.
  • Disregard the white and silver design as I ended up not using it in the final version.
  • Silver Foil: 4 x 5 1/4 inches.

Stamping

Start out by making the sentiment. Use the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up the “Peace on Earth” only. Stamp onto the 3/8 x 3 7/8 inch Basic White CS. Set aside.

Blending with the Blending Brushes

Use medium pressure as you put the Blending Brush to the Pacific Point Ink Pad. Move in small circles until you have some ink on the Blending Brush. Practice on a scrap piece of paper, moving the Blending Brush in circles. Try different amounts of pressure. Learn which pressure is needed to lightly apply the color to the paper. Blend the Pacific Point Ink onto the top and right side of one of the night sky pieces. Next, blend the ink onto the bottom and right side of the other night sky piece.

Apply the Pacific Point Ink to the top and left side of the tree piece. Blend ink onto the ends of the 1/2 x 3 7/8 inch night sky piece.

Here is how the Peaceful Place DSP pieces will fit together when they are adhered to the Silver Foil. The strip will be used on the inside of the card.

More Stamping

Create the inside of the card by stamping in Memento ink the sentiment “Blessings to you and yours this season and in the coming year” onto the inside of the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Basic White CS card base. Stamp the snowflakes in Pacific Point ink. Adhere the 3/8 x 3 7/8 inch night sky piece to the bottom of the inside panel.

Heat Embossing the Angel

Steps for Heat Embossing:

  1. Apply an Anti-Static powder to the 3 x 5 inch Basic White CS.
  2. Use Versamark to stamp the angel onto the CS.
  3. Sprinkle the Silver Emboss Powder over the Versamark until it sticks to it evenly.
  4. Tap the paper to remove the Emboss Powder that is not stuck to the Versamark TIP: If you see some Silver Emboss Powder stuck in a place where it should not be, you can use the tip of a fine tip paint brush to remove the powder before heating.
  5. Heat the Heat Tool for about 10 seconds, then wave the heat over the Silver Emboss Powder until it is all melted. Let it cool.

Coloring the Angel

To create the angel the same way I did, you will need the Pacific Point Watercolor Pencil. First apply an even but light layer on the dress. Then darken certain areas to make shadows. I am not great at the shadows. Just do what seems right for you. The hair is a light layer of the Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencil. The face and hand are done in a very light layer of Calypso Coral. I did color the wings and the dove, but later wished I had left it alone. To finish the angel, use the Wink of Stella on the dress and wings.

Assembling the Card

Begin by adhering the Peaceful Place DSP pieces to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Silver Foil as shown. Next tie a bow with the 1 1/2 inch metallic Mesh Ribbon leaving long tails. Use glue dots to adhere to the card front. Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the angel. Wrap the tails of the bow around her. Finish by adhering the sentiment.

Complete the card by adhering the Silver Foil panel to the front of the Basic White CS card base. Take care to know which panel has the inside sentiment on it so you adhere the Silver Foil to the correct side.

Add some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sky. Voila! You have made a beautiful, shining angel Christmas card.

Thanks for joining me for Day 3 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge”. I have a great 3D card for tomorrow!

Happy crafting!

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Fun Fold Friday Birthday Card

Hello and Happy Friday! I am so happy to be so close to the weekend! Today I am sharing my Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Fun Fold Friday Birthday Card! Yes, Fun Fold Friday is back!

Disclaimer: Today’s card is a little challenging. I am using few techniques. Let me know if you have any comments or questions about the instructions.

Today I have a very special card to share. My neighbor, who I have know for about 23 years, is turning 98! I am so excited for her! I am giving her this card to help her celebrate! Happy Birthday Jane!

The Card Base

Using the Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer I created the card base in Soft Succulent Card Stock (CS) with the measurements as shown above. All of the lines are scored except the two vertical lines at 1 1/4 inches and 4 1/4 inches which run from 1 inch to 5 1/4 inches in length. You will need to cut the paper along those lines. Fold as shown above.

Measurements

The first layer is Evening Evergreen CS. You will need two 1 x 3 inch pieces, a 3 x 2 3/4 inch piece and a
5 1/4 x 3/4 inch piece. The patterned paper is some of the Ever Eden Cotton Paper that I embossed with Gold Emboss Powder. You can see how to make your own patterned paper HERE. Each measurement is 1/8 inch smaller than the Evening Evergreen CS. You will need two 7/8 x 2 7/8 inch pieces, a 2 7/8 x 2 5/8 inch piece and a 5 1/8 x 5/8 inch piece. If 1/8 inches drives you nuts, you could decrease the Evening Evergreen CS measurements by 1/4 inch instead. The border would be a bit thicker.

The Gold Foil circle is from the Tasteful Labels Dies. The square is made using Partial Die Cutting with a die from the Scalloped Contours Dies. The small flower sprigs are in the Eden Dies. The center photo shows the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set die cut with the Layered Circle Dies. The leaves and berries image is from the Eden’s Garden stamp set. This is fussy cut.

Putting the Card Base Together

The first step is to adhere the Gold Embossed Ever Eden Cotton Paper to the Evening Evergreen CS. I used a thin layer of the Multipurpose Liquid Glue spread with my finger on the back of the Embossed Cotton Paper. Then adhere these card pieces to the corresponding spot on the card base.

Adhere the 2 7/8 x 2 5/8 inch Gold Embossed Ever Eden Cotton Paper to the 3 x 2 3/4 inch Evening Evergreen CS. Follow by using Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Gold Foil scalloped piece. Adhere this card piece to the center of the card base.

Adding The Decor

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the stamped leaves and berries card piece to the center of the Gold Foil scalloped square. Adhere the “Happy Birthday” sentiment to the Gold Foil circle. Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals on the bottom half to adhere it to the front of the card base. Note: I put the Stampin’ Dimensionals only in the center of the stamped leaves and berries piece so that I can insert the flower sprigs around the edges.

Insert several of the Evening Evergreen CS flower sprigs around the sentiment and around the leaves and berries image. Add the Gold Foil flower sprigs.

Add a 5 1/4 x 3 inch Very Vanilla CS to the inside of the card. I stamped a few leaves at the edge in Evening Evergreen ink.

Bling!

Now for some Bling! The Garden Gems are really interesting. They appear to be Evening Evergreen with gold accents, but when photographed turn blue and red in places! Very cool!

Voila! You have a very special birthday card that is a little challenging but worth the effort!

It was so nice to have you drop by today. I hope you try this card out. This particular fun fold lends itself to many great cards!

Stampin’ Up!® Gorgeous Leaves Paper Lattice Thanksgiving Card

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Paper Lattice Thanksgiving Card. I have a very colorful Thanksgiving Card made using the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set and Intricate Leaves Dies.

I also found a fun trick with the Paper Lattice! This card was inspired by one made by Mary Knabe. Click on the photo below to get to her blog.

Here is Mary Knabe’s card that inspired me

I also got some inspiration from the current Theme Challenge from The Paper Players.

Measurements

Soft Suede Card Stock (CS) card base: 11 x 4 1/4 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.

Very Vanilla CS: 5 1/4 x 4 inches and 5 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches.

Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry CS: 5 1/2 x 3 /8 inches
(one of each except the Pumpkin Pie CS cut two).

Paper Lattice: one.

Label Parts

Very Vanilla CS label from the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry CS leaves from the Intricate Leaves Dies.

Very Vanilla CS Stitched Rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies (the sentiment is from the Banner Year stamp set and is in Early Espresso ink).

Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim: approx. 7 inches to make one bow.

Stamping

Start by stamping the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS which is the inside of the card. Stampin’ Up! inks for this card are: Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry. Decorate the inside by stamping a variety of leaf shapes from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in a variety of color.

Weaving

Now for the fun trick! Gently weave the color CS strips into the Paper Lattice. Flip the Paper Lattice over. I recommend using the Foam Adhesive Sheets cut into 1/4 inch strips to add dimension and hold the paper strips in place on the back of the Paper Lattice.

Assembling the card

Adhere the Paper Lattice to the 5 1/4 x 3 1/2 inch Very Vanilla CS. Follow by adhering the card piece to the front of the Soft Suede CS card Base.

Complete the inside of the card by adhering the stamped 5 1/4 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS to the inside of the Soft Suede CS card base.

Assembling the Label

Arrange the Intricate Leaves as desired and adhere them to the Very Vanilla Tasteful Label. Use Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the “Happy Thanksgiving” sentiment over the leaves.

Adhere the label to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere the Early Espresso Faux Suede bow just under the sentiment with a Mini Glue Dot.

Add some Champagne Rhinestone Jewels and Voila! you have a fun and colorful Thanksgiving card!

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 Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop- May 2021 with Pansy Patch 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 new 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 order during the month of May.

This card was so fun to make. It required a lot of layered stamping, so it is probably better for the more experienced stamper. The Pansy Patch stamp set uses up to 4 layers of stamping to create these lovely pansies. Here’s how I did it.

Stamping

The first step is to use the background stamp for the largest flower and stamp in Highland Heather ink.

Next I stamped the background stamp for the smaller pansy in Highland Heather ink. I then stamped the second layer for the larger pansy in Gorgeous Grape ink, right over the first layer.

Continuing with the Gorgeous Grape ink I stamped the second layer of the small pansies. The center for the large pansy is then stamped in Daffodil Delight ink.

Finishing up with the Daffodil Delight ink I stamped the center of the small pansies. There is one more layer for the larger pansy which I stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink.

For the leaves I Stamped Off once with Garden Green ink to make the background layer. The second layer of the leaves is stamped at full strength.

Finished Card

Voila! There you have it. I also did some stamping on the inside panel. The sentiment is from the Pansy Patch stamp set and is cut with the Double Oval Punch. The scalloped oval is also cut with the Double Oval Punch. I added the Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon bow and the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

Hey Birthday Chick Fun Fold for Friday!

Hello! Stampin’ Up!® will release Hey Birthday Chick on February 2, 2021! This set is so adorable and fun to use to create cards made to bring a smile to anyone’s face.

The Fun Fold for today is wonderful to help showcase the images and sentiments in the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set! Don’t worry. It really isn’t as complicated as it looks, especially if you try it more than once.

Measurements

Measurements: Basic White Card Stock (CS) card bases: 4 x 9 inches with a score line at 3 1/2 inches, and 3 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Mango Melody CS: 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 inches, and 3 1/4 x 3 3/4 inches; Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP): 3 1/2 x 5 inches, 2 3/4 x 4 inches, and 3 x 3 1/2 inches; and Basic White CS: 2 1/4 x 2 3/4 inches, and 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches. You will also need about 16-18 inches of the Daffodil Delight 1/4 inch Ruched Ribbon (not pictured).

Stamping

Start out by stamping the cupcake chick onto the 2 1/4 x 2 3/4 inch Basic White CS in Memento Black ink. Next stamp the “Happy Birthday” sentiment under the chicken.

Stamp the sentiment “let’s celebrate you” onto the middle of the 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 inch Basic White CS. Stamp the confetti around the sentiment, first with Bumblebee ink, then with Magenta Madness ink.

Tip-Halos

Tip: When I stamped the confetti in the Bumblebee ink, I got a “halo“. Sometimes the red rubber stamps need a little trimming to avoid having the halos in the future. Some folks trim theirs with an Exacto knife. I just use my sharp Paper Snips to trim the excess red rubber off.

Now it’s time to color in this image. I like the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. If you haven’t tried them yet, I highly recommend that you do. It is very easy to make color gradients and shadows with the Blends. The cupcake wrapper is colored in Light and Dark Magenta Madness. The chicken’s feet are Daffodil Delight. I colored the Buttercup Comb on the chicken’s head in Light Calypso Coral.

To complete the coloring of the comb, first I used the Dark Calypso Coral to shadow some strands. Then I colored with the Light Calypso Coral and blended the two shades together for the final result.

Switch to the 3 x 8 1/2 inch Basic White CS with the score line at 4 1/4 inches. This is a small secondary card base. Using the Memento Black ink stamp the little chick in the middle to the left of center. Follow up by stamping the sentiment “you’re still a spring chicken” to the right of the chick. I again used the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers to color the chick. (I forgot to color the little chick until I had finished the card.) The birthday hat is colored in Magenta Madness. The chick is colored in Daffodil Delight and his beak and legs in Light Calypso Coral.

To finish up here, use the Everyday Label Punch to punch out the “let’s celebrate you” sentiment. Now you have all the stamping done!

Putting It All Together

To begin putting this Fun Fold together, we will start with the baby chick card base. Use your Bone Folder to make a nice crisp fold at the 4 1/4 inch score line. Then adhere the 2 3/4 x 4 inch piece of Artistry Blooms DSP to the front.

Now we will work on the larger 4 x 9 inch Basic White CS card base. Start by preparing the pieces. Adhere the 3 x 3 1/2 inch Artistry Blooms DSP to the 3 1/4 x 3 3/4 inch Mango Melody CS. Now adhere the 3 1/2 x 5 inch Artistry Blooms DSP to the 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 inch Mange Melody CS.

Lay the larger card base open on the table with the larger section on top. Adhere the 3 3/4 x 5 inch piece of Mango Melody CS with the Artistry Blooms DSP onto this larger portion.

To put together the front of this card base, use your Bone Folder to make a crisp fold at the 3 1/2 inch score line and fold the bottom up. Now you can adhere the 3 1/4 x 3 3/4 inch Mango Melody/Artistry Blooms DSP piece to the front of the bottom section.

This is the tricky part. You will need to adhere the smaller Basic White CS card base to the inside of the larger Basic White CS card base so that when the card is closed up, it is centered.

Finishing Up

In order to get the Happy Birthday chicken piece in the right spot you will need to place it on the front flap of the larger card base so that it is hidden when the smaller card base is closed. Adhere in place.

T

To make the finishing touches, use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the “let’s celebrate you” sentiment piece, then wrap the ribbon around the front of the smaller card base and tie a bow.

Three Bow Tying Tips

There are a few tips I use to tie a bow. The first tip is to do it upside down. The second tip is to use a pair of self closing tweezers to hold the knot while you finish tying the bow.

The third tip is to use a Mini Glue dot under the center knot of the bow to hold it in place. If the tails are not in the proper place, you can also use a Mini Glue Dot to hold the tails in place.

Viola!

Viola! Hopefully you made it through the instructions with a nice card. If you did not, don’t give up. Try it again. Often when I am creating and designing a Fun Fold, I have to do it more than once.

Thanks for hanging in there and reading my blog today. I hope you will find this a great Fun Fold to use to design your own cards.

Just A Note

There has been a change in the white cardstock that Stampin’ Up! is selling. The Whisper White CS is no longer available. Now there is Basic White CS, envelopes, notecards, etc. Below is the flyer with the new item numbers you will need to use to order. I have some on the way, but I have heard there is not much difference.

Cardz4guyz Challenge # 262- Let It Snow

I really love the snow. Mostly because I live in Arizona and don’t have to deal with it unless I choose to go up to the mountain to go skiing. Most years our family will venture up into the White Mountains for a weekend of skiing. This year we will not be going due to the Pandemic and the fact that there is very little snow. Arizona is currently in a drought. However, I decided to create a nice snowy forest scene for the Let It Snow Challenge. For this card I used stamps from Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods, Very Versailles and Snowflake Wishes stamp sets.

The snowy scene I created uses 3 layers on a base of Shaded Spruce Card Stock (CS). The first layer is a Basic White CS stamped in Shaded Spruce ink with the large tree in the Winter Woods stamp set. The center tree is stamped at full strength and the two trees in the back are Stamped Off. The little snowflakes on this first layer are from Snowflake Wishes and are stamped in Balmy Blue ink. The inside of the card is also stamped in the large tree and small snowflakes along the right-hand edge.

The second layer is the retired Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper cut out with one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. This is adhered to the back of a Basic White CS cut with a larger Stitched Nested Labels Die.

The top layer is also Basic White CS, cut from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and is stamped with several different stamps from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set. The Stampin’ Up! ink colors are: Balmy Blue, Misty Moonlight and Highland Heather. The sentiment is from the Very Versailles stamp set and is stamped in Shaded Spruce ink. The final touch is the 3 die-cut snowflakes in the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper.
