Plaid Tidings Birthday Card

This card features the Stitched Rectangle Dies and Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. I love the clean lined design these dies make and it goes perfectly with the plaid. Plaid Tidings DSP makes creating simple because the color combinations are already in place. And, IT’S ON SALE UNTIL OCTOBER 31ST. You can purchase it here. Other DSP patterns on sale are listed at the end of the post.

The sunflower seeds were a happy accident. The greetings are from the Celebrate Sunflower Photopolymer Stamp Set and I happened to tuck the seed packet in the case at the beginning of summer. When it fell out on the paper it was a perfect match, so my friend is getting a bonus…she’ll love it!

The Paper Cuts

  • Bumblebee Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ for the card base.
  • Melon Mambo Cardstock: largest Stitched Rectangle die cut and 1/2″ x 5″ strip for the inside.
  • Seaside Spray Cardstock: 3 3/4″ x 5″ panels for the inside and a 3 7/8″ x 1 3/8″ Stitched Rectangle die cut for the sentiment.
  • Plaid Tidings DSP: 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle die cut and 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ for the envelope flap.

The Creating

  • Use VersaMark ink to stamp the greetings from Celebrate Sunflowers on the smallest die cut and the inside panel. Sprinkle with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, remove excess and melt with the Heat Tool.
  • Use one edge of the larges Stitched Rectangle Die to add the stitch lines to the inside strip.
  • Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the layers with the exception of the front greeting. Pop it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add 3 Bumblebee 2020-22 In Color Enamel Dots.
  • Use Paper Snips to trim excess DSP from the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Plaid Tidings Harvest Hellos Card for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! This month the Inkin’ Krew team theme is “Giving Thanks.”

My card features the Celebration Tidings Bundle from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog and the Harvest Hello stamp set and coordinating Apple Builder Punch from the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

The Paper Cuts

  • Cajun Craze Cardstock: a 4 1/4″ x 11″ (scored at 5 1/2″) card base and a die cut of the 2nd largest die from Celebration Labels Dies
  • Plaid Tidings 6×6 Designer Series Paper: a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel, a 4″ x 3/4″ strip for the inside, and a 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ strip for the envelope flap.
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel for the front, 4″ x 5 1/4″ for the inside, a 2 3/4″ x 2″ for stamping, and a die cut of the 3rd largest die from Celebration Labels Dies.
  • Cinnamon Cider Cardstock: a double frond and a single frond die cut from the Sunflower Dies, and a 1″ x 1″ for stamping.
  • Early Expresso Cardstock: a double frond from the Sunflower Dies and 3 sprigs from Celebration Labels Dies.
  • Mossy Meadow Cardstock: 2 1/2″ x 1″ for stamping
  • Whisper White Medium Envelope

The Creating

  • Stamp the pumpkin from Harvest Hellos Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the 2 3/4″ x 2″ Whisper White Cardstock. Outline the ribs of the pumpkin with the Dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend. Fill in the pumpkin with Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend. Apply Light Pumpkin Pie to the centers of the 3 ribs in the front of the pumpkin to “lift” color to highlight. Punch out with the Apple Builder Punch. Tip: you can use a PostIt Note or flag as a handle if needed.
  • Stamp 2 pumpkin leaves and then the stem in Tuxedo Black Ink on the 2 1/2″ x 1″ Mossy Meadow card piece. Use the punch to cut out the stem. Fussy cut the leaves with Paper Snips.
  • Stamp a pumpkin leaf in Tuxedo Black Ink on the 1″ x 1″ Cinnamon Cider cardstock and fussy cut.
  • Use Cajun Craze Ink to stamp “Grateful” from the “Always Grateful” sentiment in the Celebration Tidings Stamp Set in the top right corner of the Whisper White label. Tip: I used a PostIt flag to cover “Always” before inking and then removed the flag before stamping. Stamp “Always” on the inside card panel.

The Assembly

  • Layer the Whisper White 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel, the Plaid Tidings panel, the Cajun Craze label and the Whisper White label on the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive or Stampin’ Seal.
  • Arrange the frond die cuts and glue into place.
  • Apply a Mini Glue Dot to the front of 2 of the fronds and attach to the pumpkin top on each side. The 3rd one will be glued next to the frond peeking around the pumpkin once attached.
  • Apply a Mini Glue Dot to the bottom, back of the pumpkin stem and attach to the pumpkin.
  • Pop the pumpkin on with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add a Mossy Meadow leaf at the stem with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Add the other 2 leaves at the bottom right with the stems glued and the overhanging edges with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.
  • Add 3 gold Metallic Pearls.
  • Adhere the stamped Whisper White panel to the inside of the card. Add the 4″ x 3/4″ plaid strip at the bottom.
  • Apply glue to the envelope flap and apply the remaining plaid DSP. Use scissors to cut away the excess.

Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness Thankful Card

This card features the Autumn Goodness Stamp Set and the Plaid Tiding Designer Series Paper along with the most used die set in my collection, Stitched Rectangle Dies…a must have. I am in love with this color combination of Pretty Peacock and Pumpkin Pie. I hope you like it, too. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • Pretty Peacock Cardstock: 2 3/4″ x 4 1/8″ Stitched Rectangle Die
  • Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper: 2 3/4″ x 4 1/8″ Stitched Rectangle Die, a 4″ x 3/4″ strip for the inside and a 2″ x 5 3/4″ strip for the envelope flap.
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 2 3/8″ x 3 11/16″ Stitched Rectangle Die and a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel for the inside.

The Creating

  • I used my Stamparatus to line up and stamp the pumpkin image and greeting from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock.
  • I colored the image with Stampin’ Blends: Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce.
  • I cut it with the 2 3/8″ x 3 11/16″ Stitched Rectangle Die. I adhered it to the Pretty Peacock Stitched Rectangle Die.
  • I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the Pretty Peacock decorated layer to the top of the Pumpkin Pie card base with equal border to the top and sides. I added the Plaid Tidings stitched rectangle to the bottom of the card base.
  • I added 3 Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
  • I added the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card base and adhered the plaid strip to the bottom.
  • I added a matching plaid strip to the envelope flap by applying Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the flap and then applying the DSP. I used my Paper Snips to trim the excess. This strip was a left over piece from another project and it was a little narrower than the flap so I used my paper trimmer to remove the excess flap and rounded the corners. Plenty of envelope adhesive left and successful use of a paper scrap.

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Heartwarming Hugs Treat Bag

Here’s another project inspired from Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting that included online stamping with the Celebration Tidings Bundle. It’s like getting two projects in one because of the paper and die variations. I hope you’ll enjoy them. The awesome Amy Koenders at StampWithAmyK.com shared her designed and you’ll see her Plaid Tidings DSP, Poinsettia Dies and Mosaic Gusseted Bag version below.

The Paper Cuts

  • Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper: largest die from the Celebration Labels Dies and 6 – 1″ x 3″ strips for the candy wraps.
  • Real Red Cardstock: 3 1/2″ x 1″ and a heart die (approx 3 /4″ square) from Warm Wraps Dies
  • Whisper White Cardstock: a banner die from Tasteful Labels Dies (approx 1/2″ x 2 1/2″) and a 1 1/2″ square
  • Mossy Meadow Cardstock: round, stitched die from Warm Wraps Dies
  • Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Designer Series Paper: berry sprig

The Creating

  • Adhere the small strips of DSP around 9 Hersey Nuggets (the clear medium envelope will hold another 3 nuggets if you desire). Place them in the Clear Medium Envelope, remove the adhesive backing and close behind the top row of candies.
  • Score the Celebration Labels die cut in the middle and burnish with a bone folder. Add the gold sprig to the front with a Mini Glue Dot so that it cascades to the bottom, center of the die.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the white banner label with Mossy Meadow Ink. Add the label to the Real Red Cardstock and adhere to the top, right of the Celebration Labels die cut (over the stem of the gold sprig).
  • Stamp the “For You” sentiment on the Whisper White square and cut with the coordinating Warm Hugs Die. Apply Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and apply it to the Mossy Meadow stitched die. Add it to the left of the Celebration Labels dies cut. Add the heart die to the center with a mini dimensional.
  • Use Mini Glue Dots on the inside of the decorated Celebration Label die cut to apply it to the bag of candy.

Here is Amy Koenders Beautiful Treat Bag

She used Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Cardstocks for her Poinsettia Die, Plaid Tidings DSP and Brushed Metallic Cardstock with the sprig die in Celebration Labels Dies. The bag is the Mosaic Gusseted Bag.
