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.

Hello! There is exciting news in the Stampin’ Up! world! The 2022 Stampin’ Up! January to June Mini Catalog is live! And it is Sale-a-bration Time again! Today I am using a FREE Sale-a-bration item for my Friendly Hello #SimpleStamping Birthday Card!

What is Sale-a-bration? Sale-a-bration is a promotion by Stampin’ Up! during which you earn FREE product for a qualifying order. In the USA it is $50 for most of the FREE product.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to shoot me an email at theresastreasures.az@gmail.com.

I have a follow up on a post I did on the In The Moment stamp set and different coloring techniques. The most popular technique was the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Marker! I must admit that I really love to color with the Blends.

Ok, now for the Friendly Hello #SimpleStamping Birthday Card!

The #SimpleStamping Challenge for this month was to create a card using just Stamps, Ink and paper-and to use a Sale-a-bration product.

This card is made with the Friendly Hello Stamp Set + Friendly Hello 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (DSP) which is available as a set with an order of $100 USD.

Here is how I did it:

Measurements

Friendly Hello #SimpleStamping Birthday Card:

  • Friendly Hello DSP: 4 x 5 1/4 inches

Ink colors:

  • Pale Papaya

Stamping

Starting with the inside of the card, stamp the flowers in Pale Papaya ink onto the 4 x 5 1/2 inch Basic White CS. Next stamp in Granny Apple Green ink using the leaf sprig. Finish with the Fresh Freesia ink and the small berry bunch. Set aside.

Now we will make the front of the card. Using Balmy Blue Ink, stamp the image of the bird on the branch in the center of the 3 1/3 x 4 3/4 inch Basic White CS. Next stamp the sentiment “Hope you have the BEST BIRTHDAY” in Evening Evergreen Ink in the lower left-hand corner. Using the Pale Papaya Ink stamp the flowers around the bird. Now stamp in Granny Apple Green Ink using the sprig of leaves.

To complete the front of the card, stamp in Fresh Freesia Ink using the small berries.

Assembling the Card

First adhere the stamped inside panel to the inside of the Pale Papaya CS card base.

Next adhere the stamped card front to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Friendly Hello DSP.

Stampin’ Up!® Frosted Gingerbread #SimpleStamping Christmas card

I am on Day 8 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. Today’s card is a Stampin’ Up!® Frosted Gingerbread #SimpleStamping 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

#SimpleStamping Stampin' Up! Frosted Gingerbread Christmas card

This is a perfect card for the beginner stamper to try out. I use only one stamp set, one ink and one type of paper to create this Frosted Gingerbread #SimpleStamping Christmas card.

Measurements

Frosted Gingerbread #SimpleStamping Christmas Card

  • Basic White Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.
  • Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/2 inches

Stamping

The first step is to use Real Red Ink to stamp the sentiment “Wishing You A Merry Christmas” on the inside panel of the Basic White CS card base. Tip: Be sure to use either the Stampin’ Pierce Mat or your catalog to stamp on. Photopolymer stamps work best with a softer surface under the card stock.

For the next step you will need either a Clear Block I or your stamp case. I will be using my stamp case. First remove the paper insert from the stamp case. Lay the border stamp on the top of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS to be sure it is straight. Pick the stamp up with the front of the stamp case.

Close the stamp case. Apply Real Red Ink and stamp along the upper border of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS.

Turn the Basic White CS so the stamped border is on the bottom. Ink the border stamp again and stamp along the top edge.

Stamp the sentiment “Sending You Peppermint Kisses” on the lower right-hand side. Now stamp the trio of peppermints to the left and slightly above the sentiment.

Assembling the Card

To finish the card, adhere the stamped panel to the front of the Basic White CS card base.

Stampin’ Up!® #SimpleStamping Christmas Season Christmas Card

Season’s Greetings! I am embarking on the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. Our plan is to create and blog about a new holiday card each day from November 29, 2021 until December 10, 2021. Each day I plan to showcase a different stamp set. This will allow you plenty of time to see what is available in the 2021 Stampin’ Up! July to December Catalog and order it in time to make your own Christmas cards! You can Shop Here when you are ready to place your order.

This lovely #SimpleStamping Christmas card is made from two stamp sets. The images are in the Christmas Season stamp set. The sentiment is from the Christmas to Remember stamp set.

You can get both sets along with 2 sets of dies, Cherry Cobbler & Gold ribbon, Gold Holly Leaves and gorgeous Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP) when you order the Painted Christmas Suite Collection. You will find the Painted Christmas Collection on pages 16- 17 in the Mini Catalog.

Measurements

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

Stamping

The first step in creating this card is to stamp the sentiment in Real Red ink onto the 5 x 3 3/4 inch Basic White CS. The next step involves using a Two Step Stamp. To start, lay down the large and the small of the less detailed of the 2 pinecone stamps for positioning. Then use the Clear Acrylic block E to pick up the stamps. Stamp this layer in Crumb Cake ink.

Now lay the more detailed stamps on the stamped images for positioning. Pick up the stamps with an acrylic block as you did in the previous step. Use Early Espresso ink to stamp the images.

See how the pinecones now have a more 3D quality! Next use Shaded Spruce ink and the dual small pine needle stamp to stamp twice around the smaller pinecone. Stamp the second time without adding any ink to your stamp. This is called Stamping Off.

Continue to use the Shaded Spruce ink and stamp the larger pine needle image around the pinecones. Use the Stamping Off Technique here too. This helps to add a 3D quality to the pine needles.

Assembly

Adhere the stamped card piece onto the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Real Red CS. Adhere this piece onto the front of the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Basic White CS card base.

Add a bow and Voila! you have finished a #simplestamping Christmas card!

Join me again tomorrow for another Holiday Card complete with instructions and a supply list!

Stampin’ Up!® #SimpleStamping Fall Friendship Card

Howdy! Fall is slowly giving way to the Holiday Season. Next week I will begin to show you some Holiday cards. For today I have a lovely fall friendship card made using only stamps, ink and paper. Otherwise known as #SimpleStamping.

I am actually using the Christmas Season stamp set. But I chose fall colors so I could create a nice fall friendship card. The sentiment is part of the Christmas to Remember stamp set. Stay tuned because I will soon be using the same two stamp sets to create a Christmas card.

Measurements

  • Cajun Craze Card Stock (CS) card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.
  • Very Vanilla CS: two 5 1/4 x 4 inches
  • Note: Ink colors: Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.

Stamping

Start out by stamping the sentiment “Friends Like You Make This Season Special” in Cajun Craze ink onto one of the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS. Stamp some leaves in Old Olive ink. Then stamp another style of leaf in Pumpkin Pie ink. I started out with 3 of each color in a triangular orientation.

Add a third style of leaf in Cajun Craze ink. Fill in the spaces as desired using any of the 3 styles of leaves and their coordinating color. On the second 5 1/4 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS stamp in the same manner just along the right-hand side. This will be the inside of the card so you need to leave space for writing.

Assembly

Adhere the first stamped Very Vanilla CS panel to the front of the Cajun Craze CS card base. Adhere the second panel to the inside of the card base.

Voila! You have a gorgeous #SimpleStamping fall friendship card!

Bling! Alert! I added a few of the Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels for some extra sparkle around the sentiment! This is a step up from #SimpleStamping.

Stampin’ Up!® Eden’s Garden #SimpleStamping Friendship Card

Hello! I hope all is going well with you today. We got close to a freeze the other night, but are now back up in the 70’s during the day here in Arizona. I love fall but I don’t like it too cold!

Today I have created a fun #SimpleStamping card for you to try. This card looks more complicated than it is.

I am using Stampin’ Up! product from the Eden’s Garden Collection which is being released today! I will have the item numbers and shopping information at the end of this blog.

Measurements

Basic White Card Stock (CS): card base at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; One 4 1/2 x 3 3/4 inch piece; and one 2 3/4 x 1 inch piece.

Evening Evergreen CS: 5 1/4 x 4 inches, and two 1 x 7/8 inch squares.

Stamping

On the 4 1/2 x 3 3/4 inch Basic White CS, start out with one type of leaf. Stamp with the Evening Evergreen ink. Add a second type of leaf in the same color of ink. (Note: the 4 1/2 inch edge is on the top and bottom; the 3 3/4 inch edge is on either side)

Switch to the Soft Succulent ink and stamp a third type of leaf. Finish stamping this card piece with a fourth type of leaf in the Soft Succulent ink.

Return to the Evening Evergreen ink and stamp the sentiment “Dear Friend How are you?” onto the 2 3/4 x 1 inch Basic White CS. Next stamp the sentiment “My heart is tied to yours…” on the inside panel of the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Basic White CS card base. Use the Soft Succulent ink to stamp the leaf sprigs on either side of the sentiment.

How To Assemble the Card

Use your Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut the stamped card piece into 1 1/2 inch strips. (Note: the 4 1/2 inch edge is still on the top and bottom; the 3 3/4 inch edge on either side). Adhere the strips to the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Evening Evergreen CS. Adhere this card piece to the front panel of the Basic White CS card base.

To create the sentiment, adhere the two 1 x 7/8 inch Evening Evergreen CS pieces to the ends of the sentiment strip. (Note: the 7/8 inch edge is on either side).

Voila! You have finished a great friendship card using only stamps, ink and paper! That is what #SimpleStamping is all about!

Dress It Up

If you want to “Dress It Up” a bit, add a few of the Garden Gems. I added three to make the card sparkle!

Stampin’ Up!® #SimpleStamping Birthday With Amaryllis Abloom

This lovely birthday card is actually very simple to make with the Amaryllis Abloom stamp set. This set is available when you Host a Party and reach a sales goal of $150 USD. If you would like to host an online Stampin’ Up! party, let me know at theresastreasures.az@gmail.com

Stamping

The card base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Poppy Parade card stock that is scored at 4 1/4 inches. Fold the card base in half at the score line. Use Poppy Parade ink to stamp the images randomly over the front panel.

Next stamp onto a 2 1/2 x 4 inch Basic White cardstock. Start with the amaryllis. Use Garden Green for the leaves and stem and Poppy Parade for the amaryllis. Place the stamp on the ink pad carefully so that the Poppy Parade ink is only on the amaryllis and the Garden Green ink is only on the stem and leaves. Huff on it to moisten the ink and then stamp. Remember to use your Stampin’ Pierce Mat since this is a Photopolymer stamp to get the best stamped images.

Add a “Happy Birthday” sentiment. This one is from the Pansy Patch stamp set, but you could use any “Happy Birthday” sentiment. Add the diamond design under the sentiment with Garden Green ink.

Stamp a design onto a 5 1/4 x 4 inch Basic White card stock for the inside panel.

Assembling the card

Adhere the stamped Basic White card stock card piece to the center of the front of the Poppy Parade card base. Adhere the inside panel to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base.

Voila! This is a great #simplestamping card! I hope you give it a try.

If you are interested in earning this set, please send me an email and we can get you set up to host an online party with your friends. Contact me at theresastreasures.az@gmail.com

Quick and Easy Art Gallery Note Card for Any Occasion

Today I have a quick and easy Art Gallery note card for any occasion made with #SimpleStamping. I am also showcasing two of the new 2021-2023 Stampin’ Up! In Colors! These cards will be sent along with the 2021-22 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog to anyone who requests one. Information on how to request your own copy of the catalog and this free note card following this blog.

Measurements

Measurements: Polished Pink Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 2 1/2 x 4 inches; Flirty Flamingo Designer Series Paper: 2 x 5 1/2 inches.

Stamping

The Art Gallery stamp is a Two-Step Stamp. There is an image that has less detail (left) and one that has more detail (right). It is usually easier to use one or the other first, but it does seem to be dependent on the particular stamp. For the Art Gallery flower I have found it easier to use the one on the left first.

This flower stamp works best if the first layer is light in color. This can be done by Stamping Off one time onto a scrap piece of paper. Then stamp onto the 2 1/2 x 4 inch Basic White CS using the Polished Pink ink (available May 4, 2021). Note: Be sure to use the Stampin’ Pierce mat under the clear Photopolymer stamps to get the best image.

Next stamp the second layer using the Polished Pink ink at full strength. Tip: To line up the images I find it easier to stand up so that I am directly over the stamped image.
