Stampin’ Up! Frightfully Cute Easel Card

This precious easel card is created with the Frightfully Cute Cling Stamp Set from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog. It was designed by Inkin’ Krew team member, Gloria Goller. I love that she used non-traditional Halloween colors and the Black & White Gingham Ribbon! She also made us a sweet treat holder that you can see at the end of the blog. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Flirty Flamingo Cardstock:  4-1/4″ x 11″ (card base)
  • Basic Black Cardstock:  3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ (front panel)
  • Basic White Cardstock: 3″ x 4″ (inside), the smallest die cut from Stitched Rectangle Dies, and the smallest die cut from Layering Circles Dies
  • Cute Halloween 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper: 3″ x 4″ (front panel) and 5-3/4″ x 2-1/4″ (env)
  • Black Glitter Paper: 2-1/4″ x 1/2″

The Creating

With the Paper Trimmer, score the 4-1/4″ x 11″ Flirty Flamingo along the long edge at 2-3/4″ and 5 1/2″. Reinforce the folds with a Bone Folder. Splatter both sides with the Black Stampin’ Write Marker by flicking the brush tip from the inside of the cap edge, outward toward the cardstock. Add splatter to one side of the 3″ x 4″ Basic White panel and with Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp a bat in the top left and lower right corners. Stamp “Happy Halloween to you” on the Stitched Rectangle die cut, “batty for you” on the circle die cut, and three bats on the envelope front.

To assemble the card, adhere the 3″ x 4″ DSP (Bats) to the black panel. Apply adhesive to the lower half of the black panel and center it on the Flirty Flamingo card front (the adhesive should only be below the score line). Pop the stitched rectangle on with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add a Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon bow with a Mini Glue Dot.

Adhere the stamped Basic White panel to the inside. Add the Black Glitter strip with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the sentiment circle die cut with a Stampin’ Dimensionals. Embellish the inside panel with three Cute Stars Adhesive-backed Sequins. Adhere the DSP (skulls & ghosts) on the envelope flap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trim the excess with Paper Snips.

And, here’s the awesome treat box that Gloria made to hold a Mini Moon Pie! So cute! And yummy, too!

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed 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! Pansy Patch Fun Fold Birthday Card

    This is such a fun, cute and easy fun fold. I have seen several, but it was Demonstrator Tammy Beard, who’s card inspired the making. It features the Pansy Patch Bundle along with the coordinating Pansy Petals 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper which is going on sale July 1st at 15% off! There is more about the upcoming Designer Series Paper Sale below. In the meantime enjoy the card! I hope you give it a try.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Fresh Freesia Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card front/inside card – opens left), 3″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ (card base w/panel – opens right) and two Pansy Dies single petals die cuts.
    • Evening Evergreen Cardstock: 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ (front/inside layer) and 2 Pansy Dies large leaf die cuts.
    • Pansy Patch 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper: two 4″ x 2 3/4″, 1/2″ x 3 3/4″, and 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ all in different patterns. I chose one of the patterns for the envelope flap: 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″.
    • Blackberry Bliss Cardstock: a large petal trim die cut, two small petal trim die cuts, and a pansy “beard” die cut from Pansy Dies.
    • Bumblebee Cardstock: a pansy center die cut from Pansy Dies (it cuts 3 but you will only use one on this card).
    • 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! Butterfly Brilliance Meets Pansy Petals Birthday Card

    The flowers in the Pansy Petals DSP along with the pictures in the front of the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog inspired tonight’s card. I used the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle which includes the Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp Set and the Brilliance Wings Dies. Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Soft Succulent Cardstock: 10 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ scored at 5 1/2″ (card base).
    • Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (4 patterns): 4 3/4″ x 4″ (front panel), 3/8″ x 4″ (strip), 2 1/2″ x 2″ (large butterfly), 2″ x 1 1/4″ (medium butterfly), 2″ x 1″ (small butterfly) and 2 1/4″ x 6″ (env).
    • Basic White Cardstock: Tasteful Label Dies die cut and 4 3/4″ x 4″ (inside panel).

    The Creating

    • I began by adhering the DSP panel to the front and the DSP strip to the inside, right edge with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
    • I used Evening Evergreen Ink to stamp the sentiment from Pansy Patch Stamp Set on the die cut from Tasteful Labels Dies. I also stamped the birthday sentiment on the inside panel.
    • I ran the DSPs with the butterfly dies through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. I positioned them on the card front with the label die. Once happy with the arrangement I adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
    • I added three Soft Succulent 2021-23 In Color Jewels to the label.
    • On the inside panel I added two tone butterflies created by inking in Pale Papaya Ink and then “rolling” the edges and touching the center on the corner of a Calypso Coral Pad or Soft Succulent Stamp Pad.
    • I adhered the DSP to the envelope with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips.
    • I adhered the stamped background panel to the Bumblebee panel to the Soft Suede panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I also adhered the stamped strip to the inside edge.
    • I added a strip of Stampin’ Seal to the lower left of the card. I wound Linen Thread around 3 fingers several times and then applied to the glue and spread it out a little. I topped it with the sunflower with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I embellished with Bumblebee 2020-2021 In Color Enamel Dots.
    • The decorated panel is popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

    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.

    Please let me know if you have any questions. If you do not have a demonstrator I would love to send you the Annual Catalog, Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Brochures. Just email me at stampdabbles@gmail.com.
