Sneak Peek-Floating & Fluttering Stampin’ Up!®

Hello fellow stampers! My sneak peak-Floating & Fluttering is from the 2021 January-June Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog! The Mini Catalog, along with Sale-a-bration, will be here January 5, 2021! However, as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator I get to order a month early and show you what is in store! (If you would like to be a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator click HERE for more information)

I really love butterflies so I appreciate this set.

The Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper (DSP) is yours for free during Sale-a-bration, January 5- February 28, 2021 when you place a $50 order!

Supplies:

Measurements: Rich Razzleberry Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 3 inches; Whisper White CS: 2 1/2 x 4 inches and 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches; Garden Green CS: 3 x 3 1/2 inches; Rich Razzleberry CS: 3 x 3 1/2 inches; Rococo Rose CS: 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 inches, 3 x 3 inches and 3 1/8 x 3 1/8 inches.

Stamping:

Stamp the bunch of butterflies on the 3 x 4 inch pieces of Rococo Rose and Rich Razzleberry CS in Blackberry Bliss ink.

Continuing with the Blackberry Bliss ink, stamp the frame onto the 2 1/2 x 4 inch Whisper White CS and then stamp “Thank you for your kindness” inside the frame as shown. The sentiment (and the one below) are from the new Dragon Fly Garden stamp set.

“You are an inspiration” is stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink onto the 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch Whisper White CS.

Using the Garden Green ink, stamp the bunch of butterflies onto the 3 x 3 1/2 inch Garden Green CS.

Fussy Cut the above pieces from what you have stamped. Save the remaining pieces for another card. Note: If you have the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine you can cut the pieces with the Fluttering Dies.

Putting It Together:

First, adhere the 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch Whisper White CS with the sentiment stamped on it to the 3 x 3 inch Rococo Rose CS. Now adhere the 3 x 3 inch Oh So Ombre DSP to the 3 1/8 x 3 1/8 inch Rococo Rose CS.

Next adhere the 2 7/8 x 4 inch Oh So Ombre DSP to the front panel of the Rich Razzleberry CS card base. Then adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Oh So Ombre DSP to the inside panel.

Lay the inside sentiment piece where you want it and then adhere the piece in place on the inside panel.

Stampin’ Dimensionals are used to adhere the Oh So Ombre DSP/Rococo Rose CS card piece so that it covers the sentiment piece on the inside panel. Note: Only put the Dimensionals on the back of the left hand side and leave the right hand side free. Adhere the stamped frame with the sentiment as shown, again placing the adhesive on the left hand side and avoiding adhesive on the right hand side.

You can use your Bone Folder to curl the all of the butterflies wings slightly. Adhere the Rococo Rose CS butterfly to the inside panel.

Lay out the leaves and butterflies to your liking, then adhere them to the card front.

Finishing Up:

Now for the Bling! The Elegant Faceted Gems have a light pink gem that goes well with the Rococo Rose and Rich Razzleberry butterflies.

I added a few gems to the butterflies on the front and two to the butterfly on the inside of the card.

Viola! You have a gorgeous card to thank some one and make their day!

I really appreciate you stopping by and visiting today. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

The Floating & Fluttering stamp set and Oh So Ombre paper are not available until January 5, 2021 so I will have to add in the product codes after that.

This thank you card is super easy and quick to make. You will need to emboss a 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White Card Stock (CS) with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. Next punch a bunch of trees with the Pine Tree Punch from the ‘Tis The Season Designer Series Paper (DSP). The last piece is the “thanks” which is cut out with the Well Written Dies.

Kylie’s Monthly International Blog Highlights Gallery- December 2020-Stampin’ Up!®-Arrange a Wreath

Thank you for stopping by Theresa’s Treasures today. I am Theresa and I am a Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. Today I am taking part in Kylie Bertucci’s Monthly International Blog Highlights Gallery. The theme is- Thank You. On this gallery, you can see thank you cards made by people from all over the world! My thank you card with the Arrange a Wreath stamp set was such fun to make! I hope you enjoy it. Please remember to visit the Highlights Gallery and vote for me! Thank you!

I have really been enjoying the versatility with the different wreaths I can create with the Arrange a Wreath Bundle. I wanted a winter-themed wreath for this card so I used Cherry Cobbler with Garden Green and Old Olive as the base colors. I added the Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody to brighten up the wreath.

I used the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper to make all of the flowers.

To color the watercolor paper, I used an E sized Clear Block. Just using the Daffodil Delight ink pad, I dabbed some ink onto the block.

Next I dabbed on a little Mango Melody, then Real Red and Cherry Cobbler.

I used a small spray bottle of water to dampen the paper, then sprayed a liberal amount of water onto the block with the ink. Next I flipped the block over onto the watercolor paper. I let this sit with a little weight on it for about 10 minutes.

Here it is when it is dry. This one came out a little dark with more of the reds. Sometimes it comes out with more yellows. I used the dies in the Wreath Builder Die set to cut out all the flowers.

The background is made with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. I sponged some of the Cherry Cobbler on the more prominent bricks. The sentiment from Peaceful Moments was stamped on Crumb Cake card stock after it was embossed with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.

Voila! You have a fabulous thank you card for someone special!

Stampin’ Up!® Floral Essence for Thanksgiving Spotlight Note Card

Hello fellow stampers and crafters! Today I have a darling little note card made with the versatile Floral Essence Stampin’ Up! stamp set using the Spotlight Technique. These note cards are 4 x 4 inches when complete and could be used at place settings for the Thanksgiving meal (assuming that is possible this year!). Note: This card is CASE’d from Shannon West’s presentation during our recent Onstage Convention.

I am using two exceptional stamp sets: Floral Essence and A Wish For Everything. Why are they exceptional? There are endless possibilities for the beginner stamper to use the flowers in the Floral Essence stamp set, depending on the color of ink and paper chosen. Purple, pink, and yellow for Spring; bolder brighter colors for Summer; and red/green or blue/white for Winter. The colors chosen for today’s card are Fall colors. The words in the “A Wish For Everything” cover, well, just about everything a beginner would need.

Measurements: Cinnamon Cider Card Stock (CS): 4 x 8 inches with a score line at 4 inches; Very Vanilla CS: 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 inches, 2 3/4 x 3 7/8 inches and 1 x 4 inches; In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP): 3 7/8 x 3 7/8 inches.

You will also need: Cinnamon Cider, Bumblebee and Just Jade ink, Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels, the Classic Label Punch, the 2-inch Circle Punch and the Metallic Ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo pack. All products are found in the 2020-21 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog except the Metallic Ribbon which is on page 45 of the 2020 Stampin’ UP!® Aug-Dec Mini Catalog.

Let’s get stamping!

Use the Cinnamon Cider ink to stamp the largest solid flower slightly right of center. Be mindful of the upper border of the flower as you want it to be 1/4 inch from the top. Use the Bumblebee ink to stamp the smaller solid flower on either side as shown. Tip: The Floral Essence stamps are Photopolymer, or see-through stamps. You get the best image if you stamp on something with a little “give” to it. I am using the Stampin’ Pierce mat, covered in white scrap paper. You may also try using your catalog.

Use the Bumblebee ink to stamp the center of the large solid flower. There is a different center stamp for the smaller solid flower. Stamping off Technique: stamp once onto scrap paper before stamping the center of the smaller solid flower onto your card. This will result in the center of the smaller solid flower being a little lighter than the flower itself.

Stamp the stems in Just Jade ink. I did turn the stamp upside down to stamp the stem for the Bumblebee flower to the left. I stamped twice to get the stem for the Bumblebee flower on the right. Add the leaves.

You may fill in the open space by stamping a few leaves using the single leaf stamp.

Use the Cinnamon Cider ink to stamp a large solid flower off to the right side of the 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 inch Very Vanilla CS. This will be the inside of your card, so leave a little space for writing. While you have the Cinnamon Cider handy, stamp the sentiment “Happy Thanksgiving” onto the 1 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS strip. Note: The sentiment is a Red Rubber stamp. You do not need the extra padding. The image for the red rubber comes out with more clarity when stamped on a hard surface. I just forgot to take the Stampin’ Pierce Mat away.

With Bumblebee ink stamp two more small solid flowers on the inside of the card. Stamp the center of the Cinnamon Cider flower. When stamping the center for the Bumblebee flowers remember to stamp off first. Add the stems and leaves in Just Jade ink.

Spotlight Technique: Use the 2 inch circle punch to punch out the Cinnamon Cider flower. I turned my card 180 degrees and put the punch upside down on the craft table so that I could see what I was punching. I wanted the edge of the circle to be 1/4 inch down from the top of the card piece.

Here is the end result.

Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the Metallic Ribbon to the back of the card piece you just punched.

Use a Bone Folder to fold the 4 x 8 inch Cinnamon Cider CS card base at the 4 inch score line. The Bone Folder makes a nice crisp fold. Adhere the inside panel of your card.

Adhere the 3 7/8 x 3 7/8 inch In Good Taste DSP to the card front. Now adhere the punched out card piece.

Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals or strips of the Foam Adhesive Sheets and adhere the punched out circle to the card front to complete the Spotlight Technique. Tip: I have been using the Foam Adhesive Sheets in place of the Stampin’ Dimensionals. I have had a joint fusion in my right index finger. The thumb and index finger no longer come together so it makes peeling off the small hexagonal backing of the Stampin’ Dimensionals a challenge. I found that if I cut the Foam Adhesive Sheets into 1/4 inch strips, I can use those which make peeling the backing off a bit easier.

Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the bow, and a Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere the sentiment. This little note card looks great, but I think we need some Bling!

The Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels match perfectly! That is one remarkable point regarding Stampin’ Up! products-everything matches! Each color of card stock has coordinating ink. Some colors also have matching ribbon or embellishments! In this case the Cinnamon Cider coordinates with the Metallic Ribbon, the DSP, the Cinnamon Cider ink and the Champagne Rhinestones! Anyhow, I digress. The Take Your Pick tool helps to easily transfer the tiny rhinestones to your card.

Viola! You have a darling little note card to wish someone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Kylie’s Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop- November 2020-So Sentimental

Thank you for joining me for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Monthly Team Blog Hop! I am so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop to get ideas and creative inspiration. We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® business and reach some goals we have set. I really appreciate your support.

You may be starting here at Theresa’s Treasures or have come from another blog – either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today. Enjoy!

The theme for the cards today is: Thank You. I have many customers who support me and I like to send out a Thank You card every once in awhile. The following set of cards is for my awesome customers.

I must admit that I was not a fan of any plaid. However, I really like the plaid in the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. I used the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder to make the Whisper White card stock background.

Tip for arthritic hands: I have a difficult time with the Stampin’ Dimensionals due to mobility problems from arthritic changes in my fingers. I found that if I cut the Foam Adhesive Sheets into 1/4 inch strips I can use them on the back of labels and such. This is so much easier to peel off than those hexagonal Dimensionals!

The sentiment “I Can’t Thank You Enough” is from the So Sentimental stamp set. The dies are from Stitched So Sweetly. I hand-colored the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon to match the color of the card stock. Be sure to heat set, otherwise you get very inky fingers!

I have the cards open in two different ways to add variety to the Thank You notes.

“I can’t thank you enough” for stopping by today.

There is an amazing line up of Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators from around the world that are working hard to learn how to be even more successful.

Gather Together for Friday’s Fun Fold

The Gather Together stamp set in the 2020 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog is so versatile. Today’s Fun Fold is yet another way to use the set for a nice Autumn card.

I saw this Fun Fold on a YouTube from Karen Titus. Her card was a Christmas one, but I wanted to make a Thanksgiving-style card. The large sentiments are from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in the 2020-21 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. If you plan on making a lot of thank you cards, getting the Ornate Thanks set is the way to go!

A Technique I will be sharing today is Sponging with the Sponge Dauber. Sponging is how I was able to add some color to the leaves and pumpkins!

Measurements: Very Vanilla Card Stock (CS): 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches, two at 2 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches, 1 3/4 x 4 inches, 1 3/4 x 3 inches and 3 x 6 inches; Cajun Craze CS: two at 2 3/4 x 4 1/2 inches; and Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper: two at 3/4 x 4 inches.

Usually we stamp first. But for today’s card, se have to do a little cutting. Cut 1 inch past the 5 1/2 inch score line on the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Very Vanilla CS, then cut 1 inch off the bottom of the piece you just cut off.

Lay the 1 x 4 1/4 inch Very Vanilla piece on the bottom of the back of the card front, and make a pencil mark near the upper border. Make a pencil mark on the bottom border of the piece that folds down. The two pencil marks on each side will guide you where to stamp.

Use the Terracotta Tile ink and the sentiments from the Ornate Thanks stamp set to stamp between the pencil marks and along the side borders. Remember to use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat or a catalog to stamp on when stamping with the Photopolymer Stamps.

Use the Terracotta Tile ink to stamp the sentiment “May this season bring you smiles…” in the center of one of the 2 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS. Stamp the wheat on the bottom. Both of these stamps are in the Gather Together stamp set.

Also from the Gather Together stamp set is the sentiment “Gather Together” which you will stamp in Cajun Craze ink onto the 1 3/4 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS. Punch the sentiment out with the Label Me Fancy Punch.

Using the Cajun Craze ink, stamp the two different pumpkin stamps onto the 1 3/4 x 3 inch Very Vanilla CS. Stamp two of the Maple Leaves in Cajun Craze ink onto the 3 x 6 inch Very Vanilla CS.

Technique: to use the Sponge Dauber, gently tap the white foam tip onto the Cajun Craze ink. Rub the ink off in small circles onto a scrap paper. Apply a light layer to the Maple Leaf.

Gradually add more ink until you are satisfied with the look. Follow the same procedure for coloring the pumpkins.

Fussy cut the leaves and pumpkins with your Paper Snips, or if you have the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine along with the Gathered Leaves Dies, you can cut the leaves and pumpkins out that way.

Adhere the inner sentiment and wheat sheaf to one of the 2 3/4 x 4 1/2 inch Cajun Craze CS card pieces.

Lay the two Maple leaves and the pumpkins, along with the “Gather Together” sentiment in place on the other 2 3/4 x 4 1/2 Cajun Craze CS card pieces. Adhere the two Maple leaves and the large pumpkin with adhesive.

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment and the pair of small pumpkins.

Adhere the inside panel to the inside of the Very Vanilla CS card base.

Adhere the 3/4 x 4 inch strips of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to the Very Vanilla CS strips on the upper and lower border of the card front.

Apply adhesive to the upper and lower edges of the “Gather Together” sentiment piece and adhere it to the card front as shown.

Viola! You have an amazing Autumn Fun Fold to share how grateful you are!

Thanks again for joining me on this Fun Fold Friday! Please leave a comment. I would love to hear from you.

Kylie’s Monthly International Blog Highlights Gallery- November 2020-Stampin’ Up!®-Country Home and Beautiful Autumn Thank You

Thank you for stopping by Theresa’s Treasures today. I am Theresa and I am a Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. Today I am taking part in Kylie Bertucci’s Monthly International Blog Highlights Gallery. The theme is- Thank You. On this gallery, you can see thank you cards made by folks from all over the world! My thank you card was so much fun to make! I hope you enjoy it. Please remember to visit the Highlights Gallery and vote for me! Thank you!

For this card I used the milk can and floral arrangement from the Country Home stamp set in the 2020-21 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. The oak and maple leaves are from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in the 2020 Stampin’ Up! August-December Mini Catalog. The pumpkin and squash were cut from the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper also in the Mini Catalog. Yes-I did a lot of fussy cutting!

I used the Gold Hoop Embellishment to make a sort of wreath for the arrangement. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set. The background is the Brushed Metallic card stock embossed with the Tin Tile 3D embossing folder. I also used a bit of the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.
