Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Spinner Card

Tonight I made a spinner card using the Honey Bee stamp set, coordinating Dies and DSP. It’s the first time I’ve made one…so cool!

Dimensions:

  • Thick Whisper White: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • Golden Honey Specialty DSP: 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Crushed Curry: Hive Die
  • Whisper White: 3 Bee Dies, Flower Die and Sentiment
  • Basic Black: 2 Scallop Circle Dies & Sentiment Layer

Details:

  • Glue the DSP to the card front.
  • Score the front at 2 3/4″ and burnish.
  • Use the Layered Circle Dies to cut the next to largest straight edge circle in the center of the score line.
  • Use the largest Scallop Die to cut two from Basic Black.
  • Stamp two large bees, one small bee, and a flower on Whisper White with Tuxedo Black Ink. Stamp the bee hive on to Crushed Curry with Crushed Curry Ink.
  • Color with Dark Daffodil Stampin’ Blend.
  • Add wink of Stella to the 2 large bees.
  • Use coordinating Dies to cut out stamped images.
  • Cut a piece of Silver Metallic Thread that will traverse the opening in the Circle Die Cut.
  • Apply liquid glue to the back of one large bee, lay the thread in the center and apply the other large bee, sandwiching the thread.
  • Apply liquid glue to one of the scallop frames. Lay the bee in the center and stretch the thread across so that the ends are in the glue. Apply the other scallop circle and pull the thread taught.
  • Apply liquid glue along the bottom edge of the circle cut in the card front (below the score line only). Center the scallop frame over it so that the bottom of it is adhered to the bottom of the opening.
  • Stamp Hello in the top left corner.
  • Adhere the flower to the lower left corner.
  • Use dimensional to adhere the bee hive to the inside. This will be the stop for the easel portion, so test to see where you would like it to sit. Also check out what it will look like behind the bee when the card is flat.
  • Adhere the sentiment and layer below and the small bee with Stampin’ Dimensionals. You will also want to make sure these two things are below the opening in the front so they don’t show when closed.

I hope you enjoyed tonight’s card. Thank you for stopping by.

Stampin’ Up! Dressed to Impress Thank You Card

Tonight I used the Dressed to Impress photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Best Dressed Designer Series Paper to make this sweet Thank You card. The design was inspired by a fellow Stampin’ Up! colleague named Laurie Taylor.

Dimensions:

  • Card Base: Whisper White 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Front Panels: Gray Granite 4 5/8″ x 3 5/8″ & Basic Black 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″

  • Best Dressed DSP: 2″ x 2 1/4″ (Purses) and 1 1/2″ x 7/8″ (Roses)

Details:

  • I stamped the images with Momento Basic Black Ink.
  • I sponged the edges of the inside squares (images & DSP) with a Sponge Dauber and Gray Granite Ink. I just wanted a little more of a finished look than the raw edges.
  • I colored the images and stamped the perfume with Stamp n’ Writes. I used Highland Heather, Gray Granite and Petal Pink.
  • The inside has a 1/2″ strip of the Rose pattern DSP at 5 1/4″ long.
  • The message was stamped with Highland Heather Stamp n’ Write.
  • The flower is stamped in Tuxedo Black and colored with Highland Heather and Mint Macaron Stamp n’ Writes.

I hope you enjoyed tonight’s card. Thank you for stopping by.

Stampin’ Up! Parisian Flourish Sympathy Card

A sweet friend of mine lost her husband this past week. This card is to let her know I am thinking of her. Sympathy cards can be a challenge, but this all white one with it’s simple message is appropriate and simple to create.

Dimensions:

  • Card Base: Whisper White 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Front Panel: Whisper White 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Ink: Gray Granite

Details:

  • I dry embossed the top 2/3 of the Front Panel with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Using my Scoring Tool, I added the 3 lines (from the back) across the bottom of the Front Panel.
  • I stamped the sentiments from Peaceful Moments on the Front Panel and inside.
  • I adhered the embossed panel to the Card Front with Liquid Adhesive. I like how it gets into the nooks and crannies to flatly secure a raised embossed paper.
  • The same embossing folder was applied to the envelope flap for a coordinated set.
  • 3 Pearl Basic Jewels added a little elegance on the card front.

I hope you don’t need one, but if you do, this one is simple and elegant.

Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Workshop Takes

Next week I am hosting a Stampin’ Workshop for a group of stamping friends and customers. I am featuring cards from the Peaceful Poppies Suite and the Honey Bee Bundle. Here are a few takeaways I’ve been preparing for the participants.

  • The Name Tag is layered using a Stitched So Sweetly Die topped with an oval from Stitched Shapes Dies (that’s a piece cardstock covering the last name for confidentiality). The Honey Bee is mounted on a dimensional after using a bone folder to curl his wings. The base of the tag is laminated to allow me to reuse them and to change the accent to match the theme of the workshop.
  • I used the Stamparatus to expedite stamping in two steps (Crushed Curry and Black). I inserted a half piece of the heavy weight cardboard into the bag to ensure even stamping and prevent bleed through. The identification tag is cut using the Trio of Tags Dies. Participants can keep track of their projects without getting them confused and can up-cycle the bag for gift giving later.
  • The water bottle tag flowers and hello were stamped on a single block to make that go quickly. The dimensions are 2″ x 8″ scored along the 8″ side at 2 1/4″ and 6 1/4″. The hole is made with a 1 1/4″ punch. I laid the pocket front against the palm of my hand (before gluing the sides) and ran my bone folder across to bend the fibers a little to prepare room for the drink mix to easily insert. I think I will purchase some lemonade flavor drink mix to coordinate with the paper better.
  • The packet on the easel holds three (3) Merci chocolates. The bee is die cut from the DSP and mounted with a dimensional. The sentiment is stamped on another Stitched So Sweetly Die. The Gold Shimmer ribbon is tied to the front flap only and the box secured with velcro dots. It is CASEd from The Paper Pixie. You can find the dimensions here.
  • At the time I schedule the workshop and issued the projects, the Golden Honey Specialty DSP from Sale-A-Bration was not sold out. Fortunately, I had chosen a 2nd package earlier. I am happily sharing it in 6×6 cuts with my guest for their future use. And luckily, the majority of our projects use the Peaceful Poppies Suite.

It is so nice to be able to coordinate a theme. It’s one of the perks of stamping and Stampin’ Up!’s coordinating products.

If you happen to be in the Huntsville, Alabama area and would like to attend workshops, just drop me an email (stampdabbles@gmail.com) and I’ll add you to the distribution (bcc for confidentiality). I’d love to meet you and have more stampin’ friends.

Please let me know if you have any questions. If you do not have a demonstrator I would love to send you the new catalog and Sale-a-bration Two Brochure as well as the other catalogs. Just email me at stampdabbles@gmail.com.
