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! Butterfly Gala Thinking of You Card

I am part of a committee working on a Ladies Retreat in April. The theme is Seeking God Together with a focus on Spiritual Direction. We are using the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar to represent spiritual development from Arrival to Chrysalis (stillness) to Butterfly (God sightings). So tonight I am playing with the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set. This card was cased from a UK Demonstrator named Linda Parker at papercraftwithcrafty.co.uk.

The butterfly image (be careful just to ink the large one), it’s body and the antennae are stamped on a 5 1/4″ x 4″ Whisper White Cardstock in Tuxedo Black. It is backed with a piece of Basic Black Cardstock cut at 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″. The Lovely Lipstick Card Base is 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.

I stamped a butterfly and body on a scrap of Lovely Lipstick Cardstock and punched it out with the coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch. I scored on either side of the body for a fold line to lift the wings. It is adhered with Tombow Liquid Adhesive.

I wet embossed the “You’ve Been on My Mind” using VersaMark Ink and White Embossing Powder melted with the Heat Tool on a scrap of Basic Black Cardstock. I trimmed it down and used the Triple Punch to banner one end.

The inside message from the same set is stamped in Lovely Lipstick Ink with Tuxedo black butterflies on Whisper White and Basic Black that are the same sizes as the card front layers. I thought about leaving off the black layers, but they really make the card pop.

I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels for extra bling and yet keeping the black and white neutral background with the butterfly as the star.

Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Card

The images in the Dressed to Impress Bundle are super cute and oh so girly! Especially when paired with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I must also say that it surprised me how wonderfully bold the sentiments stamped. You won’t be disappointed. Here’s what I made tonight.

The Cutting

  • Whisper White Cardbase: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″
  • Basic Black Layer: 4 3/4″ x 3 3/4″
  • Lovely Lipstick Layers: 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and 2 3/4″ x 1 3/4″ (die #2)
  • Whisper White Dies & Sentiment: 4 1/4″ x 3″ and 5 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ (largest die)

The Stamping and Embellishing

  • On the Whisper White Stitched So Sweetly Die, stamp the shoe and sentiment in Tuxedo Black ink and the dots in Lovely Lipstick ink.
  • On the Whisper White layer stamp two shoes to die cut and the inside sentiment.
  • The shoes are colored with Light Flirty Flaming and Dark Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend and the Black Stampin’ Write (sole).
  • I added Pearl Basic Jewels to the shoes.
  • The top shoe and the front layer are popped on Stampin’ Dimensionals. The other layers are adhered with Snail.

Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug Hearts Card & Coordination Product Release

Tonight I’m sharing a CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) card from Brian King at http://www.stampwithbrian.com and you can view his card here. This sweet card uses the new Ladybug Dies from the Coordination Product Release that opens tomorrow, February 4th.

Customers will be able to purchase the new Coordination Products beginning tomorrow for a limited time or while supplies last.  Click here to see a flyer with the new products, what they coordinate with and pictures of sample cards using them. Other Promotion details are listed at the bottom of this post.

The Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug Sale-A-Bration Host Exclusive Stamp Set is free with a $300 retail Customer or Workshop order. A $300 dollar order also qualifies for Hostess Rewards, Loyalty Rewards and earns free Sale-A-Bration items until March 31st. I’ll be glad to help you place your order or set up an online Workshop if you contact me at stampdabbles@gmail.com.

I began with a 11″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Basic Black Cardstock scored at 5 1/2″. I adhered a piece of 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ Flirty Flamingo Cardstock to the front with Snail adhesive. I added a 5 x 4″ piece of Basic Black and a 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ piece of From My Heart DSP.

I used a Rectangle Stitched Die (4th on in the largest set) to cut a piece of Lovely Lipstick Cardstock and added the stitched flight pattern in the left corner with the new Ladybug Dies. So stinking’ cute! I backed this piece with a 2 1/2″ x 3 6/8″ Basic Black. I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black in the right corner and the two ladybugs on Whisper White Cardstock. I colored them using the Lovely Lipstick Dark Blend and shadowed with Cherry Cobbler Dark Blend (strange combo, I know, but it looked best). The hands, feet and spots are filled with Smokey Slate Dark Blend. I cut them out with the new dies, mounted the flying one with Dimensionals and adhered the other with liquid glue and added it to the card front.

On the inside I added a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of whisper white stamped and colored with another cute ladybug. I think the one on the front that called it cute made it blush, lol. I haven’t added a sentiment yet, but it could be birthday, Valentines, thinking of you or thank you.

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Card

I used the Timeless Tropical Bundle to make this bright card. I love how the colors pop off the black background and I hope you do, too.

The card base is Basic Black Cardstock cut at 4 1/4” x 11” and scored at 5 1/2”. The inside is a 4” x 5 1/4” piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I used scrap pieces of Whisper White for the hibiscus pieces and the label.

I used Momento Tuxedo Black to stamp: the Hibiscus and three (3) leaves from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set, the Thinking of You from the Little Ladybug Stamp Set and the Hibiscus randomly on the Basic Black card front.

I used Stampin’ Blends to color the Hibiscus and three (3) leaves: Dark Daffodil Delight, Real Read Light & Dark, Lovely Lipstick Light & Dark, Old Olive Light & Dark. I then used the In The Tropics Dies to cut out the Hibiscus pieces. The label is from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

The hibiscus on the inside and the envelope is stamped in Lovely Lipstick. First Generation on the inside and Second Generation on the Envelope.

I added a little wink of Stella to the inside of the Hibiscus. It and one of the leaves are popped on Stampin’ Dimensionals. The rest is glued with Liquid Adhesive.
