Free Standing Pop-up Card with the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set

Hi Friends,

I held a fancy folds class a few weeks ago and this is one of the cards we made. I love Cucumber Crush and am going to be sad when it leaves on May 31st.  (The 2017-2018 Stand Alone Pop-up CardStampin’ Up! Catalog comes out on June 1st and it will have 5 new In-colors. Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe, Delightful Dijon, and Mint Macaron will also be retired then.)

This card was so easy to make. It folds flat to mail, but stands up by itself once it’s taken out of the envelope.  The Cucumber Crush Card Stock base was cut to 4-1/4″ x  11″, then scored and folded at 1″, 2-3/4″, 3-3/4″, 5-1/2″, 7-1/4″, 8-1/4″, and 10″.  A 3-1/4″ slit was cut in the middle of the 5-1/2″ fold.  The Cucumber Crush stamped panel, which stands in the middle of the card was cut to 3-1/4″ x  5-1/2″.

The flowers from the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set were stamped on Whisper White Card Stock in Black StazOn Ink. The flowers were colored using a Blender Pen and Elegant Eggplant Ink. The leaves were colored with Cucumber Crush Ink. The small butterfly is from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set. It was stamped in Crushed Curry and punched out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch. This stamp set and punch are also retiring. Smiley from Millan.Net

Beautiful You Screen Divider Card

Hello friends,

I had a Fancy Folds Class a couple of weeks ago and this is one of the cards we made. I wanted to make a screen divider card and saw one similar to this on Pinterest. It was perfect for the Beautiful You Stamp Set, so I had to make one similar to it.Classy Cut-ups Creations

I love using the new Watercolor Pencils with Blender Pens. The set comes with 13 colored pencils and they are so easy to use. I used Basic Black, Melon Mambo, and Daffodil Delight for the 3 dresses.

The splatters are from one of my favorite sets, Gorgeous Grunge, which I probably use on 7 out of every 10 cards! I received this set at one of Stampin’ Up’s conventions when it first came out and wondered why in the world they would make a stamp set like it. Of course, once I saw all the different ways you could use it, I was so glad I had it!

This card was so easy to make. The Bermuda Bay Card Stock was cut to 5-1/2″ x  11″ and was scored and folded at 2-3/4″, 5-1/2″, and 8-1/4″. The Whisper White Card Stock panels are 2-1/2″ x  4-1/4″.  They were each stamped and colored before being embossed with one of the folders from the Floral Affections Embossing Folders Set. The top of the card was punched using the retired Hearts Border Punch and the bottom was punched with the Decorative Label Punch. I hope you like this card as much as I do and make one of your own.Screen Divider Cards

Don’t forget to use this week’s Hostess Code: SJ3JSVHJ when placing your order.  Your name will be entered into the monthly drawing for Stampin’ Up! products. This month’s winner will receive the Avant Garden Stamp Set. You will be asked for the Hostess Code when you are checking out.

High Tide Stamp Set

Hi Friends,

I’m off to a bad start with my New Year’s Resolution to blog more already. The idea is to blog almost everyday, which I used to do.  Well, here I am again over a week late!

One of my favorite stamp sets out of the 2017 Occasions Catalog from Stampin Up! is the High Tide Stamp Set. It is a polypolymer set , which makes it so easy to stamp. (I’ve been in love with lighthouses for as long as I can remember.  I try to visit any that are near wherever I go.)

High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set
This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set. Combine individual stamps to create the final image you want in the colors you want.

Photopolymer stamps
* Are totally transparent for perfect image placement.
* Have just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time.
* Cling like crazy to our clear blocks so you don’t have to worry about slipping.
* Save space—you need only one set of blocks for all your photopolymer stamps (blocks sold separately).
* Come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.

Here are 2 projects that use this set.Classy Cut-ups Creations

There are 4 wonderful messages and such versatile images in The High Tide Stamp Set. You can add so many of the images with other stamp sets to make beautiful cards, scrapbook pages, etc.

I will add more cards using this set soon.

Touches of Texture

Hello Friends,

Today I want to share a card made with the Touches of Texture Stamp Set.  I got this idea from a card on Pinterest.

I love the Peekaboo Peach and Mint Macaron together. I stamped the card base with one of the stamps from this set in Peekaboo Peach for a nice background.  The other flower Classy Cut-ups Creationsimage is a two-step stamp.  The middle of the flower was stamped in Peekaboo Peach Ink and the outside of it was stamped with Black StazOn.  The stem was stamped in Mint Macaron Ink.  The Whisper White Card Stock was torn down the side and then glued to a piece of Mint Macaron Card Stock, which was also torn.  I wrapped a piece of Mint Macaron Ribbon around the torn panel and then adhered the panel to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the little bee in Black StazOn and colored it in with Crushed Curry Ink. I love that little bee!

Valentine’s Day Card

Hello Friends,

RRCB 55

The Retro Rubber Challenge RRCB55 is to use hearts on your card and a stamp that is more than a year old. I had a bunch of old Stampin’ Up!

I’m entering this card in the challenge.Here is the outside of my card.  The designer paper is also 3-5 years old.

This is a gate-fold card with an aperture (cut-out window). When it’s closed, you can see the stamped image through the heart aperture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the inside of my card.  I hope you like it and give this type card a try.

I’m also entering this card in The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge, which was to make a simply made card, SUO Challenge, and The House of Cards Challenge.

Have a wonderful day! Terry

How to Match the Colors You Use on Your Cards

Hello Everyone,

One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to blog more, but as you can see, I’m 3 weeks late on beginning. I hope this is not a harbinger of things to come!   I’m going to try to post on here at least 5 days a week.  This is one resolution I hope I keep.

I’m always asked how can I tell which colors go together. Of course, I say that Stampin’ Up! matches their designer paper, card stock, inks, and embellishments, which makes it so simple to decide which colors to use.  This card is a perfect example.

All you need to do is select the designer series paper you want to use and look at the colors on it.  Select some, or all of the colors that match it.Petite Petals Stamp Set

I just love this Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper available from Stampin’ Up! It’s simply gorgeous with the Night of Navy background and the colorful flowers.  In addition to the print paper, I used the Petite Petals Stamp Set and Punch to make the half-circle of flowers by the greeting.

We made this card at one of my recent classes and it was a favorite of almost everyone. I have seen a card similar to this one and have searched high and low to find it so I could give credit to whoever I got the idea from, but couldn’t find it anywhere.

This month’s Hostess Code is MYNZPX2G. Make sure you use it when placing your online orders of $150 or less (before taxes and shipping) and your name will be entered into the monthly drawing for Stampin’ Up! products. (Don’t use the hostess code if your order is $150 or more before taxes and shipping so you can earn the Hostess Rewards.) Your name will still be entered into the drawing.  Don’t forget that with Sale-a-Bration going on, you also get to select a free item out of the brochure for every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping).

Online” button in the right column. Last month’s winner received 10 card bases in various colors with matching designer series paper and ribbon.  This month’s winner will receive a stamp set.

These are the products you’ll need to make this card.

Have a wonderful day! Terry
