Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Gallery-December 2022-Peaceful Deer & Fabulous Frames

I am so excited to be in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight Gallery along with Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world! The theme for the 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, as well as those who have supported you, by sending a handmade thank you card.

This beautiful mountain scene is created with ink pads and the Blending Brushes. The trees are from the Peaceful Deer stamp set. The ornate photo corners can be found in the Fabulous Frame Dies. If you like my card, you can vote for it HERE.

Measurements

  • Blackberry Bliss card stock (cs) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches scored & folded at 4 1/4 inches
  • Blackberry Bliss cs: 1 1/2 x 3 1/4 inches for the photo corners
  • Shimmery White cs: two at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches (one will be cut down to 3 x 4 1/4 inches after blending the ink for the front and one is for the inside of the card)
  • Shimmery White cs: 1 x 2 1/2 inches (for the sentiment)

Supplies

  • Peaceful Deer stamp set
  • Beauty of Friendship stamp set (sentiment)
  • Fabulous Frames Dies
  • Ink pads: Rich Razzleberry, Fresh Freesia, Starry Sky, Evening Evergreen, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Blackberry Bliss (sentiment)
  • Blending Brushes: I use one brush for each color of the rainbow. For example, I have a “red” brush that I use for pinks and reds, a “yellow” brush for yellows, a “blue” brush for blues, etc.
  • Copier paper
  • Sticky note tape
  • Paper for table to blend ink onto
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Adhesive (glue or tape runner)
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
  • Paper Trimmer

Instructions

Blending the Card Front

Please see my blog HERE for another look at the technique to make a mountain and valley with the Blending Brushes.

  1. Stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss Ink onto the 1 inch strip of Shimmery White cs. Use the label die in the Fabulous Frames Dies to cut it out. Set aside

2. Use the sticky note tape to secure one of the 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inch Shimmery White cs to the paper covering your table. Tear the copy paper into strips to create the mountains and valleys. Tip: I had a torn strip for each color I used to avoid having the colors mix into an ugly brown when blending.

3. Secure the torn copy paper to start at the top of the Shimmery White cs. Blend on the Rich Razzleberry Ink on the right side. Then blend in the Fresh Freesia Ink. Remove the paper, move it down a bit and secure. Then blend on more Fresh Freesia Ink.

4. Use a different strip to blend in the Starry Sky Ink. Then another strip for the Evening Evergreen. Leave the strip for the Evening Evergreen Ink in place. Stamp Off some of the small pine trees from the Peaceful Deer stamp set in the Evening Evergreen Ink then stamp onto the Shimmery White cs. Move the strip of torn copy paper down. Then blend in another layer of the Evening Evergreen Ink. Stamp Off a few more of the small pine trees and stamp onto the card piece with the torn copy paper in place.

5. Remove the strip after the 2nd layer of Evening Evergreen Ink. Stamp the medium and large pine trees in Evening Evergreen Ink. Reapply the strip and blend a 3rd layer. Stamp some medium pine trees around the larger trees.

6. Apply one layer of Daffodil Delight Ink. Finish up with Pumpkin Pie Ink in the lower left-hand corner.

Blending the Inside of the Card

1. Use the second 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inch Shimmery White cs for the inside of the card. Apply the sticky tape to mask all but a 1/2 inch strip on the right. Apply the ink as described above. Remove the mask.

Assembling the card

  1. Adhere the inside card piece to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss cs card base.

2. Adhere the Sun Print DSP to the front of the card base.

3. Cut the first Shimmery White cs card piece to 3 x 4 1/4 inches. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it at an angle to the front of the card base. Adhere the ornate Blackberry Bliss cs photo corners.

4. Add the sentiment. You can add some Bling if you like. (I actually forgot! I made this card as I was headed out to Nashville to see my 1st grand baby, so I hope you can forgive me this one time! Lol!)

Voila! You have a very artistic mountain scene for a special handmade thank you card!

Framed Florets Mountain Scene for the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – November 2022

Hello and welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop! You are currently visiting Theresa’s Treasures written by Theresa McEntee- USA. I hope you enjoy my Framed Florets Mountain Scene card.

In order to make this card, I used Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer and Season of Chic stamp sets. The frames are part of the Framed Florets Dies.

Today everyone is sharing their inspiration from this colorful Scene & Color Challenge. There are several of us hopping today. My Framed Florets Mountain Scene card is just one idea. You will find a list of participants for you to follow along at the end of my blog post. Visit each blog for awesome ideas!

I was very inspired by the gorgeous, colorful mountain scene! The Stampin’ Up! colors match perfectly. Today I am using all of the colors!

I was able to achieve the mountain scene by using the Blending Brushes and a torn piece of copy paper.

Create the Mountain Scene

Trace the inner border of the larger frame from the Framed Florets Dies onto a 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch Basic White card stock(cs). Tear some copy paper strips. Secure the Basic White cs with repositionable tape. Secure the strip of copy paper as well. Start on top with the Fresh Freesia Ink and a Blending Brush. Apply the ink lightly at first. Darken to your liking. Add a small amount of the Orchid Oasis Ink in the upper right corner. Remove the copy paper mask.

Add the Trees

Move the copy paper down a bit and apply the Fresh Freesia Ink again. You may shift the copy paper strip, or even turn it over for variation. Continue moving down and use the Starry Sky Ink. After a couple of layers, use the Evening Evergreen Ink to stamp the trio of pine trees. The trees are in the Peaceful Deer stamp set. Re-apply the copy paper strip at the same level and stamp the smaller trees. Stamp off on some trees. This will give a 3D effect.

Continue to move the copy paper strip down. Switch to the Evening Evergreen Ink. Finish up with the Daffodil Delight Ink. Add a touch of Pumpkin Pie Ink on the bottom left. Tip: The Daffodil Delight Ink layer is in line with the hill under the stamped tree on the left.

Measurements

  • Basic White cs card base: 8 1/2 x 11 inches scored at 4 1/4 inches
  • Basic White cs: 1 x 3 1/4 inches for the sentiment
  • Evening Evergreen cs: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches, 4 x 5 inches for the large frame and 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches for the inner frame.
  • Texture Chic 12×12 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4 x 5 1/4 inches

Note: I Stamped Off with the Fresh Freesia Ink and the paint arch stamp in the Season of Chic stamp set to add a little color to the sentiment background. The sentiment is stamped in Evening Evergreen.

I hope this colorful card has inspired you and hopefully brightened your day.  There are other amazing inspirations for you to see as you hop along this blog hop. Please see the list below. You are at Theresa’s Treasures written by Theresa McEntee. Be sure not to miss anyone!

Thanks for visiting!

Let’s Set Sail for the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – July 2022- Scene and Color Inspiration

Hello everyone!  I’m so glad that you’re visiting today and hope you are having a wonderful day!  Today I am hopping with the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop again this month! We are sharing inspiration from this lovely summer Scene & Color Challenge. There are several of us hopping today. You will find the list to follow along at the end of my blog post.

I was inspired mostly by the colors and used all of them! I really liked the idea of the sailboat too.

Creating the Card Yourself

Start by putting the Rays of Light stamp in the Stamparatus. Using a Sponge Dauber, apply the ink starting with Daffodil Delight Ink around the center of the rays. Next apply Mango Melody Ink in a circle around the Daffodil Delight Ink. Follow with Poppy Parade Ink. Finish up by applying Blackberry Bliss Ink on the edges of the stamp. Huff on the stamp to moisten the ink and stamp onto a 3 3/4 x 5 inch Basic White card stock. Repeat this process on a second 3 3/4 x 5 inch Basic White CS. You will use the second stamped Rays of Light card piece for the inside of the card.

In Smoky Slate Ink, stamp some birds around the center of the rays of light. Use the Smoky Slate Ink to stamp the sentiment “Adventure Awaits” onto a 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch strip of Basic White card stock. Use the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut out the sentiment.

Stamp the sailboat in Blackberry Bliss Ink onto a scrap of Basic White card stock. Use the Sailboat Builder Punch. Stamp each sail in Blackberry Bliss Ink and use the Sailboat Builder Punch. You will end up with 2 sails and a boat with a mast and flag.

Stamp the water in Pacific Point Ink onto a 2 x 6 inch Basic White card stock. Fussy cut.

Putting it all together

Adhere the Rays of Light card piece to a 4 x 5 1/4 inch Blackberry Bliss card stock. Then adhere the combo to the Pacific Point card stock card base (4 1/4 x 11 inches scored at 5 1/2 inches).

Trim a 1/2 inch strip off the right-hand edge of the second copy of the stamped Rays of Light. Adhere this to a 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White card stock. There will be a border around it. Adhere the card piece to the inside panel of the Pacific Point card stock card base.

Trim the stamped water to 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the water to the bottom of the card front.

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment. Finish by adhering the boat followed by the sails-all on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I hope this card has inspired you and hopefully brightened your day.  There are other amazing inspirations for you to see as you hop along this blog hop. Please see the list below. You are at Theresa’s Treasures written by Theresa McEntee-USA. Be sure not to miss anyone!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I can’t believe it is July already! This year is flying by for me! This Stampin’ Up® Hello Ladybug Thank You card is a perfect thank you card for July picnics and barbeques.

I am delighted to be participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight Gallery with Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world today! The theme for the Gallery is “Thank You”. We often forget those simple words – Thank you. It is so important to show your appreciation to the people in your lives who have inspired you, helped you, and supported you by sending them a thank you card.

The Stampin’ Up!® Hello Ladybug stamp set has several fun ladybug images. There is a coordinating Ladybug Builder Punch.

Let’s make this card!

Measurements and Supplies

  • Basic White Card Stock(CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches
  • Real Red CS: 5 1/4 x 4 inches and 3/4 x 4 1/4 inches
  • Basic Black CS: 5 1/8 x 3 7/8 inches and 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches

  • Ink: Memento, Real Red and Parakeet Party
  • Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels
  • I also used the Label Me Fancy Punch to round the end of the sentiment strip

Instructions

Tip #1: to get the best results with stamping a stamp with a large solid area like the ladybug and leaf, use the Stamparatus so you can stamp over the image a few times.

Tip #2: Be mindful of how you position the stamps for the ladybug body and wings on the Basic White CS so you can use the punch.

  1. Stamp the body of the ladybug in Memento Ink onto Basic
    White CS.
  2. Using a second piece of Basic White CS stamp the ladybug wings in Real Red Ink. Use Memento Ink to stamp the spots.
  3. On another piece of Basic White CS stamp the leaf in Parakeet Party Ink. You will need to Fussy Cut the leaf.
  4. Use Real Red Ink to stamp the sentiment onto the 3/4 x 2 1/2 inch Basic White CS.
  5. Insert the left end of the sentiment strip into the left side of the Label Me Fancy Punch to round the edge. Cut a banner edge on the right end.
  6. Adhere the Real Red CS to the Basic White CS card base. Then adhere the Basic Black followed by the pieces of DSP.
  7. To make the ladybug appear as though it were flying, use a Stampin’ Dimensional on the tail end and adhesive on the head.
  8. For the wings, use the Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the tips and adhere the top of the wings to the ladybug body with adhesive.
  9. The leaf is adhered by using a Stampin’ Dimensional on the base and adhering the tip with adhesive.
  10. Adhere the sentiment.
  11. Apply the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels as desired.

For the inside of the card, adhere the Real Red CS, Sweetest Christmas DSP and Basic Black strips as shown. Stamp the trio of flowers in Real Red Ink and Fussy Cut.

Voila!

Voila! You have a great summer Thank You card!

Stampin’ Up!® New Horizons #SimpleStamping Birthday Cards

The New Horizons Designer Series Paper (DSP) available in the Stampin’ Up! 2022 Mini Catalog is just gorgeous on its own. Combine that with the On the Horizon stamp set and you can create some awesome scenes with the #SimpleStamping Technique. You end up with wonderfully beautiful scenes with very minimal work on your part!

The following cards were part of my last Zoom Card Making Class. Here is an example of a really quick and simple scene using Evening Evergreen and Blackberry Bliss Inks.

Measurements for above card

  • Night of Navy Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.
  • New Horizons DSP: 4 x 5 1/4 inches. Cut a 1/2 x 5 1/4 inch strip for the inside.
  • Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches (inside of card)

Instructions

  1. Use the Evening Evergreen Ink to stamp the sentiment “Relax & Enjoy Your Day” in the lower left corner.
  2. Stamp the trio of trees three times across the horizon.
  3. Finish by stamping the birds a few times in Blackberry Bliss Ink.
  4. Voila! That’s it!

If you like to decorate the inside you can do some simple stamping. Add the 1/2 x 5 1/4 inch New Horizons DSP for something extra special. The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.

Here are a few more samples of the way I used the #SimpleStamping Technique to easily and quickly create a series of gorgeous cards! And some of the cards have a very masculine feel for your special guy.

I stamped on the New Horizons DSP, then cut it into 3 pieces to give this card a different look.

Thank you so much for visiting today. I hope you have a wonderful day and have some time to do some crafting! Join me for my next Zoom Card Making Class on April 9, 2022. For more information click HERE.

What I learned from this Friday Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday Card

Hello my stamping friends! I hope all has been well with you this week. Today I have a Friday Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday Card for you. I learned this fold from Rachel Tessman who made it as a Paper Pumpkin alternative. You can see her card HERE. The first go around I made several mistakes. There will be tips for you so that you will be able to avoid the same mistakes I made.

The New Horizons Designer Series Paper (DSP) is so awesome, I am in love with it! This paper is super great for scenic watercolor backgrounds. I will be using the New Horizons DSP for today’s card along with the Sailing Home stamp set.

This is a photo of the second Friday Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday Card card I made. I will give you tips so that your first card comes out right.

Measurements

Friday Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday Card

Misty Moonlight Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches.

New Horizons Designer Series Paper (DSP): The scene will be portrait orientation. Cut the 6 x 6 inch scene at 4 1/4 inches first. Then cut the resulting strip to be 1 5/8 x 5 1/2 inches. Cut the scene to be 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches. You will need to use 2 sheets to get both scenes. One scene for the front and one for the back of the card.

Basic White CS: 2 1/2 x 1 inch (for sentiment) and 2 x 4 inch to stamp the larger sailboats on.

Night of Navy CS: 2 3/4 x 1 inch (for sentiment)

Ink: Night of Navy

Scoring the Card Base

Score at 1/2, 2 1/8, 2 5/8, 4 1/4, 5 7/8, 6 7/8 and 8 inches.

Preparing the Card Base

First Tip: Do not burnish the score lines until after you make the slot. Make the slot as thin as you can. The slot on the left is too wide. This made the finished card unstable. Use the Stampin’ Up! Trimmer to get a thin slot. Set the left edge of the card base at 4 5/16 inches and make a cut from 1 1/8 to 4 3/8 inches. Then turn the card base 180° and cut again. Use your paper snips to cut the extra piece off to make the slot.

Second Tip: Adhere the 1 5/8 x 5 1/2 inch strips of the New Horizons DSP close to the 4 1/4 inch score line, but do not cover the score line. The card should be easy to fold.

Stamping

Stamp the large sailboat twice in Night of Navy Ink onto a scrap of Basic White CS. Use a scrap of the News Horizons to stamp the small sailboat twice. You may fussy cut the sailboats or use the Smooth Sailing Dies.

Stamp the desired sentiment onto the 1 x 2 1/2 inch Basic White CS with Night of Navy Ink. I used the “Happy Birthday” from the Celebrating You stamp set.

Assembling the Fun Fold

One difference between my card and Rachel’s is that I wanted an image on both the front and the back of the card. That way there is something to look at forward and backward. Adhere the top of the two sailboat scenes together. Apply a Tear-n-Tape strip to the bottom of the back one.

Insert the sailboat scene through the slot in the card base. Align the bottom of the sailboat scene with the 1/2 inch score line. Take the protective layer off of the Tear-n-Tape on the scene. Fold the base at the 1/2 inch score line so that it sticks to the sail boat scene. Apply a strip of the Tear-n-Tape to the Misty Moonlight bottom.

Peel the protective layer off of the Tear-n-Tape. Adhere the two sailboat scene pieces together. Press down. Apply more Tear-n-Tape over the bottom of the sail boat scene. Remove the protective covering.

Fold the card base at the 4 1/4 inch score line to adhere the sides together.

Here is how the Pop Up Box looks from the side and all the way folded down. Cool right?!

Decorating the Pop Up Box

Tip: The first go around I put the small sailboat on the left and the sentiment on the right. The second time I was able to add the larger sailboat if I put the small sailboat to the right. Note: I forgot to stamp the birds on the sail boat scene for the first card. I really like the scene much better with the birds added.

On the backside, I placed the small sailboat on the left and the larger sailboat on the right as shown.

Be sure to adhere the sail boats and sentiment to the small strip under the DSP piece so that they pop up!

Finished Product

Here are the forward and backward views of the first card.

Here are the forward and backward views of the second card.

Voila! I hope you are successful with this. I really felt a sense of accomplishment after figuring this Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday card out.

Stampin’ Up!® On the Horizon #SimpleStamping Thank you card

Good day fellow card makers, stampers and crafters! I have a series of beautiful #SimpleStamping cards for you! I will show you the first one today.

The New Horizons Designer Series Paper really makes the card for you. And they turn out to be stunning cards!

What do you “see” in your minds eye when you look at this fabulous paper?

I saw a sunset scene. This scene is so peaceful and serene for me. All I did was to use the On the Horizon stamp set to add the birds and trees using Polished Pink Ink.

Measurements

On the Horizon #SimpleStamping Thank You Card

  • Polished Pink Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.
  • New Horizons Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4 x 5 1/4 inches. Save a strip to use on the inside panel.
  • Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches.

Stamping

First stamp the birds from the On the Horizons stamp set in Polished Pink Ink. Follow by stamping the trees. Stamp Off once for the trees on the left. Use Evening Evergreen Ink for the sentiment “Thanks for Everything”.

Adhere a strip of the New Horizons DSP to the left side of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. Stamp the birds over the top. Adhere the front and the inside panels to the Polished Pink CS card base.
