The Perfect Pear….

Sometimes your plans just don’t work out….like sharing samples last week of the Tutti-Frutti Suite. I live in California and we are very lucky to have been having some amazing weather so we headed to the beach for a few days to relax and enjoy the sun with friends and family.

Today I cleared off my desk and started to get back to what I started, creating with the Fruit Basket stamp set and Tutti-Frutti Designer Series paper….the perfect pear!

Watermarked(2018-02-19-1014) (1)

Directions:

  • Start with a card base of lemon lime twist CS (5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″)
  • Next emboss a piece of whisper white CS (3 3/4″ X 5″) with the Simple Stripes embossing folder and adhere to a piece of crumb cake CS (3 7/8″ X 5 1/8″), adhere to the lemon lime card base.
  • Make a banner with a 2″ strip of Tutti-Frutti DSP and flag the bottom with the triple banner punch
  • Wrap a 6″ piece of lemon lime twist ribbon around the top of the banner and tie in a knot, adhere to the front of the card.
  • Punch out 1 starburst in tutti-frutti DSP, die cut 1 stitched circle in whisper white and sponge the edges in crumb cake ink. With crushed curry ink and a sponge dauber color the back side of a metallic foil doilie and cut in half.
  • Stamp the basket in crumb cake ink on crumb cake CS and cut out. Stamp a couple pears in both crushed curry and lemon lime twist ink, punch out with the pear punch. Stamp “hello” in crumb cake ink on a scrap of whisper white CS, cut out and punch a 1/6″ hole. Wrap a piece of linen thread around basket and tie a bow with the tag.
  • Attach the basket to the stitched circle with dimensionals, add the pears with mini dimensionals.
  • Layer together by adhering 1 half of the doilie to each side of the starburst, attach the whisper white stitched circle next with dimensionals, and adhere to the banner below the knot and add acouple tutti-frutti sequins.

I love making cards that are general, they are perfect when you just want to say hello and brighten someones day or add a sentiment inside!

More with Lots of Lavender!

I had so much fun creating cards with the Lots of Lavender Sale-A-Bration stamp set. I created these three cards using the narrow note cards and envelopes from the 2018 Occasions catalog. The note cards were the perfect size for both the bouquet or spray of flowers and with the two-step stamping adding color to the outline images is easy. if you would like a bolder image color them in with the New Stampin’ Blends.

This stamp set can be yours for Free with a $50 purchase 🙂 during Sale-A-Bration!

Here is a list of supplies I used to create these three note cards, click on any product and it will direct you to my online store!

I Just Love You….

Today is day 5 of my Valentine share and I have made a card that will be perfect to give to that special someone. Melon mambo, basic black and whisper white are the colors I choose with a little added sequins bling.

IMG_6213 I combined images from the Petal Palette and Picture Perfect Birthday stamp sets featured the Occasions catalog. By using the New Stamparatus from Stampin’ Up! I was able to easily line up the images, this fun NEW tool will be available in our 2018-2019 Annual Catalog on June 2.

Directions:  To create the card I used the NEW Narrow Cards & Envelopes from the Occasions Catalog and the Stamparatus. (complete list of supplies below)

  • When using the Stamparatus you will follow these three steps for most projects to set up placement for the stamp. I placed the note card in the left hand corner for this card but you can use the entire area.  The stamp I am using first  is a red rubber stamp so I am working on the grid base.
  • Repeat the above steps but move down 1 hinge for each image.
  • The second image is a photopolymer so we will be using  a thin foam pad for cushion (included with the Stamparatus)
  • Ink the “LOVE” on the I Just Love You stamp with a basic black Stampin’ Write marker and stamp on a scrap on melon mambo CS, die cut with a heart shape and attach with a dimensional.
  • Adhere the  melon mambo washi tape along the left side, wrap around a 15″ piece of basic black bakers twine,  when tying the bow insert  a 4″ piece of black sequin trim.
  • I added a strip of washi tape to the envelope and stamped “I Just Love You” along the long side.

I’m sure now that you see how easy it is to have perfect placement with the Stamparatus you can’t wait to get yours. I will be sharing more projects using different techniques over the next couple months 🙂

Day 3 Valentine Treat Share

Day 3 Valentine Treats

This week is going by quickly, it’s day 3 of my Valentine Treat share with the Sure Do Love You bundle. I created this treat holder out of one of our NEW Whisper White Narrow Note Card Envelopes featured on page 19 of the Occasions Catalog along with the Painted with Love Suite. The envelopes work great and with 20 in a pack you will be able to create a lot of treats.

IMG_6194

Directions:

  • Die cut the 2nd largest stitched shape circle framelit out of the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper
  • Die cut a 2 3/4″ melon mambo scallop circle using the layering circle framelits, adhere to the stitched circle and cut in 1/2 (you have an extra set for another treat)
  • Stamp one of the conversation hearts from the Sure Do Love You bundle in basic black on whisper white card stock, die cut with the coordinating heart from Lots of Love Box framelits, die cut an additional one out of melon mambo card stock. Trim the white off the stamped heart and attach to the melon mambo one with a dimensional.
  • To create the holder you need to fold the bottom of the envelope in half
  • Fold that edge up 1/4″ to 1/2″, crease with the bone folder
  • Open up and fold back forming a”W”
  • Just above the front lower fold add a strip of melon mambo washi tape and adhere the conversation heart as pictured.

Day 2 Valentine Treats

It’s day 2 of my Valentine Treat share with the Sure Do Love You bundle. Today I chose to wrap up a box of “Sweethearts”, you can choose to wrap up any box of candy just by adjusting the measurements of your base card stock. This is a fun treat to give, everyone is surprised when the pull up on the bow the candy comes right along with it 🙂

Sweethearts all wrapped up!

FullSizeRender

Directions:

    • Cut 1 piece of melon mambo card stock 3 1/4 X 7″, lightly wrap round your box of candy pressing on all edges to get nice crisp edges. (The melon mambo may need to be different depending on your box of candy, measure all the way around and add 1-2″ for overlap)
    • Overlap on the back side and adhere, slip off and punch a 1/8″ circle through both layers near the top.
    • Cut a 20″ piece of the black shimmer ribbon, insert through the hole on the front and bring out the hole in the back, pulling the ribbon so it is equal in length on both sides.
    • Insert the box of candy slowly pushing the ribbon down with it, tie a bow on the top of the box. This will allow the box to slide up when you pull the bow.
    • On a scrap piece of whisper white card stock stamp the banner image from “Sure Do Love You” in melon mambo, stamp off on a scrap piece of paper first for a softer image. Stamp again in basic black and cut out the words as pictured, attach to the banner with dimensionals.
    •  Adhere 4 rows of melon mambo washi tape on a piece of whisper white card stock (apx. 2 1/2″ X 3″) die cut with the 4th from the largest smooth ovals, die cut another piece of whisper white with the 3rd from the largest scallop oval, adhere together with adhesive and then to the front of the box.
    • Die cut the larger heart from the Love You Lots Box framelits out of a scrap of Petal Passions Designer Series paper, attach to oval with dimensionals
    • Add the banner to the heart with dimensionals to finish off.
