Dragonfly Dreams In Night of Navy

Hello Friends,

I hope you all had a great start to your week! I’ve had another busy day, but here I am posting at 1:00 am!

Even though the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle (stamp set and matching dies) are on the Stampin’ Up! Retiring List, the stamp set and dies will be in the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalog… You just won’t be able to purchase them as a bundle after May 31st. It is one of my favorite sets from the Occasions Catalog.

This is one of the cards we made in a recent card class. The card base was made with a piece of Whisper White Heavy Card Stock. (I love using the heavy card stock for my Classy Cut-ups Creationscard bases. Guess what! It’s also going to be available in Very Vanilla when the new catalog is released June 1st!)  The middle layer is Night of Navy Card Stock and the stamped layer is Whisper White Card Stock.

I used a retired background stamp for the Daffodil Delight stamping under the dragonflies and added 2 strips of Washi Tape along the left side of the panel. The five dragonflies were cut out of Night of Navy Card Stock with one of the dies from the Detailed Dragonflies Thinlits Dies Set.  Since the dragonflies’ die-cut is so thin, I put a few drops of Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue on a piece of sponge and dabbed it all over the back of the dragonflies. It stuck to the card perfectly, without any glue squishing out of the sides and getting my paper yucky! I love this technique!

I have kits available to make this card, as well as others. Click on “Card Kits for Sale” on the Menu Bar above.

To get the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle at a 10% saving, purchase it as soon as possible! You can order it or any of the other products I used to make this card by clicking on one of the images below, by clicking on the “Order Stampin’ Up! Online” button in the right column, by emailing me at terry@classycutupscreations.com, or by calling me at 727-698-7509.

Touches of Texture With Watercolor Pencils

Hi Friends,

On to today’s card. We made this card in one of my recent card classes and I just love it for several reasons. First of all, it was made with 2 of the images from one of my favorite stamp sets – Touches of Texture (It’s in the new catalog!) Next, I used my watercolor pencils and a blender pen to color it – I love watercoloring. I used my favorite print out of the gorgeous Falling in Love Designer Series Paper (It’s already sold out and I’m really going to miss it!) Next, I used a piece of the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate for the first time – It’s awesome and I can’t wait to use it again.  And last, I love the layout – which I found on Pinterest. I always have a hard time using big banners on my cards, but this layout was perfect!

I made this as a Mother’s Day Card, but it would be perfect for a birthday, thinking of you, I miss you card, etc.

Watercolored Birthday Blooms

Hi Friends,

I love watercoloring! I don’t care if it’s with paint, markers, watercolor pencils, Blender Pens, Aqua Painters, or paint brushes…It’s just so much fun.

The watercolored rose on this card was first stamped in VersaMark and embossed in gold. I then use an AquaClassy Cut-ups Creations Painter and my ink pads to color it.

I’ve used several Stampin’ Up! colors for my card. The base is Whisper White Car Stock, both mats are Peekaboo Peach Card Stock, and the stamped layers are watercolor paper. The ribbon is also Peekaboo Peach.  The flower was colored with Peekaboo Peach, Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, and Daffodil Delight Inks.

I’m entering this card in the Clean and Simple May Watercolor Challenge, which is to use flowers on your card.

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.
