Happiness Abounds - Many Thanks

Happiness Abounds - Many Thanks

Hello my stamping friends.

Today I am sharing this bright and fun summertime card featuring the Happiness Abounds Bundle from the new annual catalog. I created this card for a demo swap, which you all know I love participating in.  

For today’s project I wanted to have lots of creative layers.  So you will see:

  • Layer 1 - Background Stamping

  • Layer 2 - Dry Embossed Panel

  • Layer 3 - Die Cut Panel

  • Layer 4 - Sentiment Tag

  • Layer 5 - Die-cut Flowers & Leaves

But I also wanted to keep my colors limited, so everything is done with Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, and Basic White.

I do have a Stampin’ Show & Tell demonstration for you today and take you through the entire project start to finish.  Here is the video.

So, I know you like to have all the parts and pieces listed out that I used, so here are the details to get you started on your own project.

Above are all the stamping you can do on the project.  Below area all the panels after embossing and die-cutting are completed.

All that is left to complete is assembling all the pieces and layers with your adhesive!

Wonderful World Easy Fun Fold

Wonderful World Easy Fun Fold

Hello my stamping friends.

Today I have a really easy fun fold project. I used the Wonderful World bundle again from the Sale-a-bration promotion, and modified the Z-fold project to fit the size of the left-over DSP I had on my crafting table. Here are the measurements for my project shown.

I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to die-cut these small floral panels from the Wonderful World DSP.  Then backed them with a Mossy Meadow cardstock panel that measures 2 x 4 ¼ and I die-cut them with the Stitched Greenery die.  I really love this design.  Then that was mounted on another piece of Basic White cardstock to frame it all in.

Clean and simple if I do say so myself! So what do you think! Are you going to try this simple sketch? I would love to hear from you, leave me a comment below. If you are interested in more of my projects please check out my Summer Sale-a-bration Class that features the Wonderful World SAB Bundle, or subscribe to my newsletter if you wish.  Thanks for visiting my project today.

In The Moment - Simple Sketch

In the Moment

Hello my stamping friends.

It’s Friday and I like to share projects you can follow along with at the end of the week.  Today I am sharing these two card projects I did a few months ago that feature the In The Moment stamp set.  At the time I was participating in a demo stamp together with my upline team the BZB stampers.  We are given the measurements of items to prepare and then we join a ZOOM call and we are taken through the project step by step.  Only, it’s a mystery card project… so we don’t actually see it being constructed, we have to listen and then interpret the directions to make our own cards.  Then we share them online in our team group and I am always amazed at all the variations in the different demo’s projects.

So today, I am sharing my projects with you.  Here is the Scrap It! Sketch for you with the measures of the different layers.   This is the project I shared above.

Here is the second card following the same basic guide.

Here is the stamp set I used - In The Moment

In the Moment 157987

You can see I made the sentiment tags different, to fit the sentiment I wanted to use.  I also used different DSP samples for each card, but both came from the Pansy Petal DSP - 155807 which is now retired.  But I am sure you have lots of DSP you could  use to CASE this project.

Both cards were made using a watercolor technique, so I stamped the images with Staz-on Ink.   I let the DSP colors dictate my ink colors for each project as well. I used a few drops from my re-inkers in the lids of my ink pads along with the watercolor brushes to add ink to the images.  Of course you could add color with any assortment of ink methods.  So choose your favorite!

So what do you think! Are you going to try this simple sketch? I would love to hear from you, leave me a comment below. If you are interested in more of my projects please subscribe to my newsletter if you wish.  Thanks for visiting my project today.

Happy Stampin,

Susan

Boughs of Holly

Boughs of Holly

Hello my stamping friends.

So I am participating in a demo swap for the fall 2022 Fall Mini Catalog collection and made this card for my fellow demonstrators. It features the Boughs of Holly Suite - 159612.  You can see all the wonderful elements in the online store with this link!  The stamp set features images of Holly leaves and berries and the papers are a beautiful assortment of reds and greens for the holiday season.

I do have a Stampin’ Show & Tell demonstration for you today and take you through the entire project start to finish.  Here is the video.

YOUTUBE LINK

So, I know you like to have all the parts and pieces listed out that I used, so here are the details to get you started on your own project.

You can see the measurements on the image above.  A standard card base, with a DSP layer of 4 x 5 ¼. The rest all die-cuts, and a great way to use up your scrap cardstock if you have it handy.  Otherwise just cut pieces to fit your dies.

The above pieces make the colorful label die for the center focal point of the project. The below images show how I modified the label die to make a sentiment label to fit inside the frame of the label die in three steps.

So what do you think! Is that too many die-cuts for your projects, or do just love how easy die-cuts can make beautiful cards?  Leave me a comment and let me know what you go for in your projects.

Wonderful World - Simple Sketch

Wonderful World Simple Sketch

 Hello my stamping friends.

It’s Simple Sketch Time!  I used the Wonderful World Sale-a-bration bundle, a simple dry embossed background with the Timeworn Text folder, and a simple stamped image that I colored with two different ink colors to coordinate with the DSP sample.

You can see the measurements on the image above.  A standard card base, with a DSP layer of 4 ¼ x 2.   Then mount up the focal point image on a coordinating piece of cardstock.  With a DSP piece this size, you could make 14 cards from one sheet of paper!

Here are similar cards that used the same simple sketch, but lots of different colors and DSP samples from this sample bundle.

So what do you think! Are you going to try this simple sketch? I would love to hear from you, leave me a comment below. If you are interested in more of my projects please check out my Summer Sale-a-bration Class that features the Wonderful World SAB Bundle, or subscribe to my newsletter if you wish.  Thanks for visiting my project today.

Rings of Love - House | Catalog Case

Rings of Love DSP | Catalog CASE

 Hello my stamping friends.

This project was created as an example of how to CASE a catalog project.  I do this often, but last month I shared some of my insight with my fellow demonstrator team.   Here is the card that I CASED from the 2022 Fall Mini Catalog.

So, I first looked at the sample from the catalog and broke it down into how it was put together.  

  • The Cardbase: 8 ½ x 5 ½, Pear Pizzazz in color and it is dry embossed.  

  • The Focal Point: the center image which appears to be inset about an inch from each side.  So that piece would be 2 ¼ x 3 ½, it has a stamped image on it. 

  • Embellishments: there are embellishments from die-cuts positioned around the center image.  Plus a few embellished dots were added as well.

  • Sentiment: there is a stamped sentiment on a trimmed banner piece of cardstock.

  • Colors: Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Foil Paper.

 

So, now to decide which element I want to stick with or what idea I want to base by CASE on?  I decided for this case I would focus on the image of the house, centered on the card, and stick to the basic layout as well.

So from the Rings of Love DSP I trimmed out a house with my paper snips.  This house led me to my colors of Starry Sky for my cardstock card base and my ink color.  I dry embossed the card base with the Fern 3D embossing folder.  I adhered my house first to a sample of the Rings of Love DSP for a colored background, and then mounted that to a piece of Basic White cardstock to frame it in.  Finally I die-cut a small banner with the Stylish Shapes Dies and stamped HELLO from the Forever Fern stamp set.

You can see my measurements on the image below for the Simple Sketch.

So here is my finished project! I hope you enjoyed the process of my crafting today. Remember a sketch is just a starting point in your project.  And you can look at a catalog sample and break it down into a sketch with parts and pieces. 

So what do you think! I would love to hear from you, leave me a comment below.

Design A Daydream | Pocket Fold Card

Design A Daydream Pocket Card Design

 Hello my stamping friends.

Today  I am sharing a simple fun fold card design. I dubbed it the Pocket Fold!  It really is a simple fun fold, and as you will see from the tutorial shared, something you can do.  I am featuring the Design A Daydream DSP that is the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog Hostess Item.  It comes with lots of printed paper designs.  Just coordinate your cardbase color with a color in the DSP that you choose to craft with.

Design A Daydream HOST DSP      159161

All Images © Stampin’ Up! ®

 

First, let’s start with the materials.

  • Cardbase 11 x 4 1/4

  • DSP Panel 4 x 6

  • Liner 4 x 5 ¼

  • Paper Ribbon ½ x 6 ¼

Okay, so the base has two score lines, one at 5 ½” and the other at 1 ½”.  

The DSP panel will be cut into four sections to be used on the card.  The two larger sections for the card base and the two skinny sections for a little embellishment on the card liner panel.

Okay, so now let’s create the pocket! 

  • Adhere the 4” x 3 ¾” to the front flap of the card.

  • Then wrap the paper ribbon around the base and fold and adhere to the front, under where the 1 ½” flap will fold down.

  • Now fold down the flap and add the 1 ¼” x 4” DSP panel.

  • Then finish off the inside panel with the two ½” DSP strips.

Then you can embellish the card any way you like.  I added a Birthday greeting and the die-cut bike from the retired Tulip Fields dies.

Well, do you agree, it was simple right?  I hope you will enjoy this fun fold and use it in your paper crafting.
