Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration and the July-Dec 21 Mini Catalog Begins August 3 and August 2nd is last day for the DSP Sale!

This is an exciting week with Stampin’ Up! Not only does the new July – December 2021 Mini Catalog roll out for customer ordering, but Sale-a-bration (Round 2) begins! You will be able to earn free products for every $50/$100 you spend and the products are awesome! Tonight I used the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Cling Stamp Set which is free August 3-Sept 30 (while supplies last) with a $100 order. I hope you enjoy the card!

My card design was inspired by Color Throwdown Countdown #653. Aren’t these colors gorgeous? I’m using Magenta Madness, Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie and Garden Green.

The Paper Cuts

  • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (base), 3″ x 3″ (stamping) and the smallest Stitched Rectangle Dies die cut.
  • Basic White Cardstock: 3 6/8″ x 5″ (front panel)
  • 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front), 4″ x 3/4″ (inside strip) and 2″ x 6″(left from cutting the front panel to be used for the envelope flap).

The Creating

I used the Stamparatus to stamp the Two-Step dahlia image from Delicate Dahlias on the Basic White front panel, the inside panel, the envelope, and the 3″x3″ piece. You can use blocks, but I find it easier to line up the varied edges with the Stamparatus. Plus, with a larger stamp like this, the Stamparatus ensures a clean 2nd image if you miss ink or pressure somewhere. I used my Paper Snips to fussy cut the dahlia that I stamped on the 3″x3″ piece of Basic White cardstock.

I stamped the dahlia outline image on a post it note, catching the sticky edge, and fussy cut it for a mask. I then used it to cover the stamped dahlia’s so I could add the leaves “behind” the flowers. I used a block here since the image is smaller and has less detail on the outline. Easy peasy! I also stamped the sentiment inside the card and on the right side of the Stitched Rectangle die cut. You can use snips or your paper trimmer to trim off the overhang on the left side once it is adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The envelope flap will be 1/4″ wider than the DSP strip so just trim it with Paper Snips or the Paper Trimmer. There will still be plenty of envelope adhesive left on the flap to seal it and your will have put that scrap to good use!

All that is left is the assembly…the paper layers are adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The fussy cut dahlia is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a little Wink of Stella to the flower centers and three 2021-23 In Color Jewels with my Take Your Pick Tool putty end to embellish.

Thank you for stopping by. If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!

    Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season (Sneak Peek) and Beauty of Friendship Masculine Thank You Card

    I used a little old and a little new for this card. The Beauty of the Earth 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper, the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set sentiments, and the Wintery 3D Embossing Folders are from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog whereas the Christmas Season Stamp Set and the Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots embellishment are from the upcoming August 3, 2021-Jan 3, 2022 Mini Catalog. I love the coordination and quality of Stampin’ Up!, as well as the versatility of the products to be used for multiple occasions. Enjoy!

    The design for this card was inspired by The Paper Player Challenge: PP551 – A Sketch Challenge from Ann.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 1 7/8″ x 4 1/4″ and 1 7/8″ x 7/16″ (for stamping)
    • Soft Seafoam Cardstock: 3 1/2″ x 1″
    • Old Olive & Mossy Meadow Cardstock: 3 1/16″ x 1″ (1 of each color)
    • Soft Suede Cardstock: 2″ x 5″
    • Early Expresso Cardstock: 2 1/8″ x 5 1/8″
    • Beauty of the Earth 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front panel) and 4″ x 1/2″ (inside)

    The Creating

    I stamped the smaller pinecone from Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set four times on the Basic White panel. This is a Two Step image…I stamped the detail stamp first in Early Expresso Ink and followed up with the larger fill stamp in Soft Suede Ink. Next I added the double leafed fir stamp randomly between the cones with Mossy Meadow Ink and followed with the pine sprig image in First- and Second-Generation Old Olive Ink. To complete the stamping I added the sentiments with Early Expresso Ink and added the leaves inside with First- and Second-Generation Old Olive Ink.

    Next I ran the small strips of green cardstocks through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine inside the pine sprig Wintery 3D Embossing Folder. I did the same with the flap of the Basic White Medium Envelope.

    To assemble, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the layers and the inside strip to the card base. I added three Bronze Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to embellish the card front.

    Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of the Season Autumn Card Sneak Peek

    I used the Sparkle of the Season Bundle from the upcoming August 3, 2021-Jan 3, 2022 Mini Catalog to make this Fall card. The bundle includes the Sparkle of the Season Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Seasonal Swirls Dies. There is also a sneak peek of the sparkly Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ Ribbon. So pretty! And, the plaid Peaceful Prints 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper in the background is free from Stampin’ Up! as of Aug 3 with a $50 order as part of Sale-a-bration!

    The design for this card was inspired by the Sunday Stamps Weekly Challenge SSC262 GETTING SKETCHY.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Early Expresso Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base) and the leafy wreath die cut from Seasonal Swirls Dies.
    • Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Bumblebee Cardstock: two leaves die cuts from Seasonal Swirls Dies in each color (the die cuts 2 leaves at a time so you will have 4 leaves in each color).
    • Cherry Cobbler Cardstock: two leaves die cuts and 3 7/8″ x 5 1/4″ (front panel).
    • Sahara Sand Cardstock: 2″ x 1″ (stamping & cutting three pinecones)

    • Basic White Cardstock: label from Tasteful Label Dies and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside panel)

    The Creating

    I stamped three pinecones from Sparkle of the Season Stamp Set in Early Expresso Ink onto the Sahara Sand Cardstock (which coordinates with the Peaceful Prints DSP) and die cut them with the coordinating die. I stamped the “Grateful” sentiment on the Tasteful Labels die cut in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I also stamped the inside sentiment from A Wish for Everything Stamp Set with Cherry Cobbler Ink.

    I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the layers and die cuts to the card base. For the greeting on the card front, I applied Tear & Tape Adhesive to the back of 2 1/2″ of Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ Ribbon and to the back of the stamped label. I added three Gold Metallic Pearls to embellish the card front. I adhered a strip of the DSP to the envelope flap and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips for a coordinating set.

    Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Notecard

    I used the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set and coordinating In the Tropics Dies to make this beach themed notecard.

    My card design was inspired by Color Throwdown Countdown #652.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Pacific Point Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (base) & 4 1/2″ x 1 3/4″
    • Bermuda Bay Cardstock: 4 1/2″ x 1 1/4″
    • Crumb Cake Cardstock: 4 1/2″ x 1 3/4″
    • Pattern Party 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper – Granny Apple Green Pattern: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
    • Basic White Cardstock: 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ (stamping/die cutting) & 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside panel)
    • Mango Melody Cardstock: sun die cut from Sheep Dies in the 3 Aug-30 Sept Sale-a-bration Brochure (free with $50 order)

    The Creating

    I began by die cutting the top edge of the Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake Cardstock strips with the snow die from Cabin Dies from the upcoming 3 Aug to 3 Jan 2021 Mini Catalog. It’s the die that has the fox on the edge…be sure he is facing off the cardstock…he’s cute, but he’d be funny on the beach ;). I stamped the sentiment on the Crumb Cake layer in Tuxedo Black Ink and then glued the pieces together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the edge. When the glue was dry I ran them through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die.

    I stamped the palm trees image in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and the Basic White inside panel and scrap. I colored the fronds with Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend and the trunks with Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blend. I die cut the one on the scrap along with the cloud stamp from Sheep Dies.

    All that is left is the assembly…the DSP, layered rectangle, sun, cloud and inside panel are adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The die cut palm trees are popped up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (the trunks with halves). I added a double bow from Linen Thread with a Mini Glue Dot.

    Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Birthday Card

    I used the Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Bundle to make this floral birthday card to share with you. The bundle includes the Artistically Inked Stamp Set and the Artistic Dies. I also used the coordinating Expressions in Ink 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper and Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack.

    My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #495.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Polished Pink Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (base) & 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ (4th smallest scallop circle die cut)
    • Expressions in Ink 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front panel) & 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (envelope)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 4″ x 5″ (stamping/die cutting) & 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside panel)

    The Creating

    On the Basic White Cardstock, I stamped two rose images and a bud image in Polished Pink Ink. I also stamped two leaves images in Just Jade Ink and one leaves image in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I die cut these with the coordinating dies as well as the 3rd smaller smooth circle die from Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the “best wishes” sentiment on the circle with Pear Pizzazz Ink.

    On the inside panel and the envelope front, I stamped the rose image, masked it (with an image that was stamped on a post it note sticky edge and fussy cut), and then stamped the leaves image. On the inside panel I stamped the “Happy Birthday” sentiment with VersaMark Ink, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melted it with the Heat Tool. So pretty!

    All that is left is the assembly…the two roses, the sentiment label, the gold leafy sprig and the Pear Pizzazz leaves are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The other layers are adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. For a little extra bling, I added three gold Metallic Pearls with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool. Paper Snips make quick work of trimming the excess paper from the envelope flap after adhering.

    Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Counting Sheep Birthday Card – Sneak Peek

    I used the Counting Sheep Cling Stamp Set along with the coordinating Sheep Dies from the upcoming August 3 – September 30 Sale-a-bration Brochure. Each of these products is free with a $50 purchase, so you will want to purchase $100 during the sales period in order to get them both. The sheep are super cute and have great accessories to go with them (fence, flag, clouds/shrubs, party hat, sun and balloon). This card was CASEd from my awesome upline, Amy Koenders. You can see her card here. Enjoy…

    The Paper Cuts

    • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base) and 1″ x 2″ (balloon die cut)
    • Pattern Play Designer Series Paper (Host Stampin’ Reward): 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ (front panel), 5 1/4″ x 1/4″ (inside strip) and 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (envelope)
    • Pool Party Cardstock: 4″ x 2 1/8″ (front layer)
    • Granny Apple Green Cardstock: 4″ x 1″ (front layer) and 1″ x 2″ (balloon die cut)
    • Crushed Curry Cardstock: 1 1/2″ x 2″ (sun and balloon die cuts)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside panel) and 5″ x 2 1/2″ (stamping/die cutting)

    The Creating

    I stamped the Granny Apple Green Cardstock randomly with the grass image using VersaMark Ink and set it aside to dry. With Tuxedo Black Ink, I stamped the two sheep, two party hats and the birthday greeting on the 5″ x 2 1/2″ Basic White Cardstock. I also stamped the sheep on the corner of the envelope and the sheep and sentiment on the inside panel. I colored the party hats with Dark Daffodil Delight and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend Markers. I used a Dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend to color the sheep hoofs and a Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend to add color to the sheep accents (where indicated by the stamped lines). I colored the sheep “flesh” with a Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend.

    Next I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attached the Granny Apple Green Cardstock layer to the Pool Party Cardstock Layer just overlapping slightly on the long edge. Once dry, I ran it through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the 4th largest die from Stitched Rectangle Dies. I also die cut the stamped and colored images, the balloons and the sun for the card front. I adhered the party hats to the sheep with liquid glue along the bottom edge.

    I adhered the DSP layer and the stitched rectangle layer to the card front and the inside panel and DSP strip with liquid glue. I added the adorable sheep with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the body and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals cut in half on the legs and hat. The sentiment was trimmed with Paper Snips and popped up on the left with a Stampin’ Dimensionals and liquid glue on the right. The sun and balloons are applied with liquid glue…for the balloon strings, I laid them on my Silicone Craft Sheet and just smeared a little glue from the tip of the liquid glue dispenser onto them. Finally, I adhered the DSP panel to the envelope flap and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips.

    Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Bundle Birthday Card – Sneak Peek

    I used three products from the Painted Christmas Suite Collection to make this masculine, wintery birthday card. The suite is featured in the upcoming August-December 2021 Mini Catalog. The bundle includes the Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Seasonal Labels Dies. The Painted Christmas 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper coordinates with Calypso Coral, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Early Expresso, Evening Evergreen, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Real Red, Soft Sea Foam, Soft Succulent…and as you can see here, Balmy Blue (not listed, but it’s perfect!). I love how Stampin’ Up! coordinates everything. Enjoy…

    The Paper Cuts

    • Painted Christmas 12×12 Designer Series Paper: 5 1/4″ x 4″ (front panel), 5 1/4″ x 3/8″ (inside strip) and 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (envelope).
    • Balmy Blue Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base).
    • Evening Evergreen Cardstock: 4″ x 3 1/4″ (largest die in Seasonal Labels Dies).
    • Basic White Cardstock: 51/4″ x 4″ (inside panel), and 7″ x 5″ (stamping/die cutting).

    The Creating

    I used Pear Pizzazz Ink and Evening Evergreen Ink to stamp the greenery images (3 medium leafy, 3 pine, 2 long leafed, and 2 small leafy) on Basic White Cardstock. I die cut them with the coordinating dies with the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. I also stamped the birthday sentiment from Timeless Tropical Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen and die cut with the smaller label die.

    I continued the stamped greenery theme to the envelope front and stamped the sentiment on the inside panel. I added the Painted Christmas 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap (trimming with my Paper Snips) and the bottom edge of the inside panel. I adhered all the layering with Multipurpose Liquid Glue except the sentiment label which is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The card front is embellished with three Soft Succulent 2021-23 In Color Jewels placed with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool.

    Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Christmas Card – Sneak Peek

    I used the gorgeous Merriest Moments Bundle from the upcoming August-December 2021 Mini Catalog to make this traditional Christmas card. The bundle includes the Merriest Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder. The “Embossing Folder” is a slight bit deceptive because while there is an embossing folder, there are also 16 fabulous dies! The “hybrid” refers to the fact that they emboss and cut in one fell swoop. This bundle has my heart! And, the Heartwarming Hugs 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper is a returning favorite. Enjoy…

    The Paper Cuts

    • Heartwarming Hugs 12×12 Designer Series Paper: 5 1/4″ x 4″ (front panel), 5 1/4″ x 3/8″ (inside strip) and 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (envelope).
    • Real Red Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base).
    • Garden Green Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ for embossing/die cutting.
    • Basic White Cardstock: 51/4″ x 4″ (inside panel), 3″ x 2 1/4″ (die cutting) and 6″ x 2″ (stamping/die cutting).

    The Creating

    I placed the the outline die, the stitched rectangle die and the Garden Green panel inside the hybrid embossing folder and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. I saved the green stitched rectangle cut out for another projects and cut one from Basic White to use for this card.

    With Real Red Ink I stamped the greeting on the rectangle die cut and 2 red berry images on Basic White Cardstock. With Garden Green Ink I stamped the greeting on the inside panel, 3 medium holly leaves, 2 small holly leaves, a leafy sprig and the pine sprig. I die cut the stamped images with the coordinating dies.

    I used Mini Glue Dots to attach the stamped leaves on and underneath the embossed frame. I adheared the inside panel and the DSP strip, the DSP front panel and the embossed panel with the attached die cut pieces to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I popped the rectangle sentiment up with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added the berries to the corners with liquid glue and Mini Dimensionals (I just tucked them under the overhang with my Take Your Pick Tool). I adhered the DSP panel to the envelope and trimmed the excess with the Paper Snips.

    Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of the Season Halloween Card Sneak Peek

    I used the Sparkle of the Season Bundle from the upcoming August-December 2021 Mini Catalog to make this fun Halloween card. The bundle includes the Sparkle of the Season Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Seasonal Swirls Dies. There are two other wreaths (stars & holly), sentiments and decorations for multiple holidays. Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Crushed Curry Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base), six leaf die cuts (die cuts 2 at a time), and a broom die cut.
    • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: two 4″ x 5 1/4″ panels and four pumpkin die cuts
    • Soft Suede Cardstock: wreath die cut, a broom die cut and 2 leaf die cuts
    • Basic White Cardstock: two 3 3/4″ x 5″ panels

    The Creating

    I did a dry fit of the dies on one of the white panels to decided the placement for the sentiment which I stamped in Pumpkin Pie Ink. I ran the stamped panel through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the Textured Textiles 3D Embossing Folder. I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut pieces to the panel. To make the broom I snipped the Crushed Curry bristles off and adhered them to the Soft Suede broom. Super cute!

    For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from A Wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie Ink and added the remaining pumpkin die cut. I adhered the card layers as shown and added 5 Crushed Curry Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool.
