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.

    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! 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.

    • Basic White Cardstock: a large petal die cut from Pansy Dies, the 2nd smallest Stitched So Sweetly Dies scallop label and two 4″ x 2 3/4″ panels (for stamping/writing).

    The Creating

    I began by adhering the pansy pieces together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue…just little dots along the edges of the petal trim pieces and at the base of the leaves, smaller petals, “beard” and center. I applies Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back so it would be ready to go.

    Next I stamped the sentiments from Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set on the Stitched So Sweetly die cut and horizontally centered on one of the Basic White panels with Evening Evergreen Ink. On the remains panel, vertically, I added the small pansy in the lower right corner with Fresh Freesia, Blackberry Bliss, Bumblebee and Evening Evergreen Inks.

    To assemble the card, I used Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to adhere the Evening Evergreen panel centered on the larger (left) side of the Fresh Freesia card base w/panel. Then I added the Fresh Freesia card front/inside centered on it. I also added the stamped Basic White panels and the card base and card front DSP panels. I added the larger DSP strip to the bottom edge (after slanting the ends with my Paper Snips), added the sentiment label and topped it with the remaining smaller DSP strip.

    Now to add the gorgeous die cut pansy! One tip…don’t place it too close to the edge of the fold or the card front won’t open fully. Then to embellish, I added 3 Evening Evergreen 2021-23 In Color Jewels with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool. The card fits into a standard Basic White Medium Envelope which I adhered a piece of coordinating DSP to and trimmed away the excess with Paper Snips.

    I hope you enjoy the card. 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! Friends Are Like Seashells Card

    I used the Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle, the Beauty of Friendship 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper and the 2021-23 In Color Shimmer Vellum for this friendship card. Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Night of Navy Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
    • Beauty of Friendship 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (front panel)
    • In Color Shimmer Vellum: 4 1/4″ x 5 3/4″ (largest Seaside Shells die cut)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 2 3/4″ x 1 1/2″ (Painted Labels die cut), 3 3/4″ x 5″ 5 (shells) and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)

    The Creating

    I began by die cutting the large die from Seaside Seashells Dies in Soft Succulent 2021-23 In Color Shimmer Vellum. So pretty! Then I ran it back through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine inside the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder for the pretty details.

    Next I stamped the coordinating seashells on the Basic White panel. Check out the instructions here for lining it up all at once on the Stamparatus so that they line up with the embossing folder and the large die. This time I just stamped them on scraps and lined them up with the coordinating shell on the die…a piece of Washi tape can be helpful. I stamped the shells with Misty Moonlight, Night of Navy and Soft Succulent Inks. Note: You will only need 4 as the sentiment label covers one. I embossed them and then die cut them. Then I trimmed any connectors (paper pieces bridging them together) with my Paper Snips and added Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the backs of the 3 smaller shells.

    I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy Ink on Basic White Cardstock and die cut it with the Painted Labels Die. I trimmed the right side with my Paper Trimmer so it would fit flush against the right side of the card. I also stamped the inside sentiment and added the shells and dots at the bottom with Soft Succulent and Night of Navy Inks. I repeated this designer on the envelope.

    To assemble the card, I used Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to adhere the front (Beauty of Friendship DSP and Night of Navy panels) and inside panel. For the vellum, I applied liquid adhesive behind the shells and small dots of liquid glue at the junctions of the sea fronds. I wanted the edges to be free for a little lift and texture. I popped up the sentiment label with Stampin’ Dimensionals and used liquid glue on the largest shell.

    To embellish, I added Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool.

    I hope you enjoy the card. 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! Encircled in Friendship Thank You Card

    I used the Encircled in Friendship Bundle and the Expressions in Ink 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper to make this Thank You card. Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Pale Papaya Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″
    • Expressions in Ink 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (front panel), 1/2″ x 4″ (inside strip) and 2 1/4″ x 5 3/4″ (envelope flap)
    • In Color Shimmer Vellum: 4″ x 4″ (largest, outline die cut)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside) and the 3″ x 3 1/8″ (for die cut)
    For this card, the two dies used from Encircled in Beauty Dies are the 1st one (cut in Pale Papaya In Color Shimmer Vellum) and the first one on the second row (cut in Basic White Cardstock).

    The Creating

    I began by die cutting as indicated above with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I stamped the sentiment from the Encircled in Friendship Cling Stamp Set with Soft Succulent Ink. I also added the sentiment on the inside panel (it’s slightly off center to the left to accommodate the DSP strip).

    To assemble the card, I used Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive on the front and inside panels. For the vellum, I placed the sentiment die cut on top and flipped it over so that I had a guide to place the liquid adhesive. I wanted the edges to be free for a little lift and texture. Then, I popped up the sentiment stamped die cut up with Stampin’ Dimensionals which hid any adhesive that may have shown through the vellum. The DSP panel was adhered to the envelope flap and trimmed with Paper Snips for a coordinated set.

    To embellish, I added Pale Papaya 2021-23 In Color Jewels with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool.

    Stampin’ Up! Encircled in Friendship Card

    I received the Encircled in Friendship bundle from my sweet upline, Amy, yesterday and I couldn’t wait to use it! The Encircled in Friendship Cling Stamp Set has beautiful sentiments, floral images, and a little bit of coloring. The Encircled in Beauty Dies are incredible! I had to cut one of each right away. In addition to cards, they will be great frames for scrapbooking. Thank you, Amy! BTW, the True Love 12×12 DSP will be going away at the end of the month. Grab it while you can and enjoy the card!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Flirty Flamingo Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (cardbase).
    • Basic White Cardstock: largest lace edge die from Encircled in Beauty Dies, 5 5/16″ x 3 15/16″ (front panel) and 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside panel).
    • True Love Designer Series Paper: largest Stitched Rectangle Die (front panel); left over strip from the edge (inside).
    These are the incredible dies! I have more playing to do! I need to cut some in colors…maybe that pretty Shimmer Vellum?

    The Creating

    I began by stamping the small floral image around the die cut with Tuxedo Black Ink (no measuring involved, just winged it…not perfect, but it’s all good!). I added the sentiments in the middle and on the inside panel. I colored the flowers with Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends and the Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I repeated on the inside panel and the bottom edge of the envelope.

    To assemble the card, I used Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive on the front and inside panels and the die cut left over edge on the inside. I popped up the decorated Encircled Beauty die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

    To embellish, I added Matte Black Dots between the floral images with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool.

    Stampin’ Up! Shimmer Vellum Birthday Card with Art Gallery Bundle

    Sunday, Amy’s Inkin’ Krew had our Quarterly Meeting and a few of our talented Demonstrators presented cards for us to make. This card is inspired by the card Karen Ksenzakovic presented. It features the gorgeous 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum embossed with the lovely Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. The flattened photographs don’t do the Shimmer Vellum the justice it deserves, but the 2nd photo shows it best. It’s oh so pretty! The Art Gallery Bundled savings will end on June 30th. If you don’t have it, it’s a great one to get because it includes two different flower images, two-step stamping and lots of sentiments that we use all the time. I hope you enjoy the card!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Pale Papaya Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
    • Soft Succulent Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″
    • Pale Papaya Shimmer Vellum: 3 3/4″ x 5″
    • Basic White Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″ for stamping/die cutting and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside panel)

    The Creating

    I began by stamping the larger floral image from the Art Gallery Stamp Set in 2nd Generation (stamped off once) Pale Papaya Ink on the right side of the 5 1/4″ x 4″ Basic White panel (see die cutting layout below for general placement). I then added the 2nd step floral image in Pale Papaya Ink (without stamping off). I stamp the stem and leaf image with Soft Succulent Ink in the lower right corner. These colors are so pretty together!

    Next, I die cut the stamped images with the coordinating dies from Floral Gallery Dies and the 2nd largest Stitched So Sweetly Die. I passed the Pale Papaya Shimmer Vellum through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine inside the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder.

    I used a Blending Brush dipped in Soft Succulent Ink to add a little color in the center of the Stitched So Sweetly die cut and added the Happy Birthday stamp to the bottom edge.

    To assemble the card, I placed Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive on the back of the shimmer vellum where the die cut would cover it and adhered it to the Soft Succulent panel. I adhered both to the card base. I adhered the stem/leaves with liquid glue and popped the floral image up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also popped the scallop die cut up on the the shimmer vellum to (which covered the liquid glue underneath the vellum).

    To embellish, I added Pale Papaya 2021-2023 In Color Jewels using the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool. I added a Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon bow with a Mini Glue Dot.

    For the inside panel and envelope I duplicated the floral stamping and added the Best Wishes sentiment.

    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!
