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.

Measurements: Oh So Ombre DSP: 3 x 3 inches, 2 7/8 x 4 inches and 4 x 5 1/4 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.

Kylie’s Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop- December 2020- Winter Thank You Cards

Thank you for joining me for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Monthly Team Blog Hop! I am so excited that you could join us today for this blog hop! I know you will get lots of 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 am a Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. I really appreciate your support.

The theme for the cards today is: Thank You. I have many customers who support me and I like to send them a Thank You card every once in awhile. The following set of cards is for my awesome customers. These are thank you notes to send for anyone who orders during the month of December.

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. The colors are: Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Real Red.

I adhered the trees with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is adhered with Tombow. An afterthought was that you could cut the sentiment out with an Adhesive Sheet which would make it easier to adhere it to the card front.

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!

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.

Viola! After much fussy cutting and arranging, trimming here and there, I settled on this arrangement for this card. Remember to say thank you often as it is always nice to be appreciated.

Please stop by the International Blog Highlights Gallery and see all the awesome Thank You cards from all over the world!

Stampin’ Up! Artistry Blooms Thank You Card

Since saying “Thank You” to others is such an important gesture I decided to break from the Halloween and Fall cards to make a fun Thank You card that uses the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP). Artistry Blooms is one of the many Designer Series Papers currently available for 15% off. More on that below.

I just love the Artistry Blooms DSP because of all the bright colors and abstract patterns.

Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS): 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches and 2 x 4 inches; Mango Melody CS: 3 x 5 inches; Magenta Madness CS: 2 x 4 1/4 inches; Artistry Blooms DSP: 2 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches and 1 3/4 x 4 inches.

Peaceful Moments is a really great sentiment stamp set for the beginner. It has most of the major categories included: Happy Birthday, Congratulations, Sympathy, and Thank you.

Using Magenta Madness ink, stamp the sentiment “Thank You” onto the 2 x 4 inch Whisper White CS. Punch the sentiment out with the Timeless Label Punch. Believe it or not, that is it for the stamping.

Adhere the 2 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches Artistry Blooms DSP to the 3 x 5 inches Mango Melody CS. Then adhere the 1 3/4 x 4 inch Artistry Blooms DSP to the 2 x 4 1/4 inch Magenta Madness CS.

Fold the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Whisper White CS at the 5 1/2 inch score line and use the Bone Folder to make a crisp fold. Adhere the Mango Melody CS and DSP card piece to the left side of the card front. I try to leave a white border on the left side, the top and the bottom that are roughly equal, about 1/4 inch. Add the Magenta Madness CS and DSP card piece so that the right white border is the same as the left white border.

Use the Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment “Thank You” to the card front. This card is perfectly fine the way it is. However, I wanted to add some butterflies and Bling! to dress the card up a bit.

I cut a 2 inch strip of the Artistry Blooms DSP in a pattern that would show up against the two patterns already on the card. I punched out one large and two small butterflies with the Butterfly Duet Punch.

I used the Bone Folder to curl the ends of the butterfly’s wings.

I put them on the card and moved them around until I felt I had a nice balance.

Now for the Bling! I used the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots in the Magenta Madness and Bumble Bee colors in the center of the butterflies.

Viola! You have a colorful thank you card to send off! A card that expresses gratitude is really beneficial not only to the recipient of the card but also to the sender. I think if the card is made by the sender, the sender benefits even more! Good feelings all around!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I really enjoy hearing your comments, so let me know what you think. Also, please like my post. Thank you!

International Blog Highlight Winners Hop October- Country Home

I am so excited and thankful to be part of the Top 10 Winners Hop from Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight! Thank you to everyone who voted for my card from October’s International Blog Highlight, allowing me another opportunity to post on the Winners Hop. Ten Demonstrators from around the world will be posting today. The theme today is Thanks.

I created this card using several techniques including masking and sponging. I have fallen in love with all you can do with the Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers and the Country Home stamp set. Additional texture was added with the use of the Textured Essentials stamp set. I continued the background design on the right of the inside.

By sponging, I blended Misty Moonlight and Cajun Craze inks together to create the background. The sentiment and blotches are in Early Espresso ink. The Stampin’ Blends colors are: Misty Moonlight, Gray Granite, Smoky Slate, Just Jade, Calypso Coral, Poppy Parade and Crumb Cake.

I hope you enjoyed my card. I am very thankful for all the good things; sometimes they are difficult to see, but there are many good things and good people out there.

Thank you for stopping by today!

I colored with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers in Highland Heather, Purple Posy,Granny Apple Green, Pool Party, and Soft Suede.

The Stampin’ Up!® Card Stock colors are: Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Whisper White. The measurements and instructions are found on my blog post from October 2, 2020 which you can see HERE.
