A Cute and Easy Banner Card!

I just love the beautiful Heart & Home Designer Series Papers, and I saw a cute banner card by SU! Artisan Tammy Wilson, and wanted to try it. It actually needed very few supplies, and was so fun to make!

I cut a card base panel from one of the backs of the papers, which are all wood grains in neutrals shades of grays, black, and whites. Love it! I then chose from five of the patterns from the beautiful Heart & Home papers, each cut about an inch wide, and two inches long. I then hand-cut banner edges at the bottom of each one. Here are the beautiful papers you can choose from in this set:

Heart & Home Designer Series Papers

I took a larger needle, and made two holes in each banner piece, and then simply ‘sewed’ the pieces together and tied a knot at each end.

The sentiment is from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then cut diagonals at each end, popping it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a little bling in the form of the 2021-23 In Color Jewels. That was it! Simple and quick!

I hope you enjoyed my card today. Click on any products below to shop with me!

Amazing Silhouettes, II!

Yesterday, I featured one of my favorite products from the brand new 2022 January-June Mini Catalog — a stamp set called Amazing Silhouettes. The four larger stamps in the set create negative space that results in a striking effect. Today, I’m focusing on a different stamp from that set….the butterfly silhouette.

The butterfly is one of these four stamps:

Amazing Silhouettes Stamp Set

For my project, I started with a card base of Basic White. I embossed a panel of Pale Papaya cardstock of 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ with the 3D Embossing folder and adhered it to the card base. I took a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock, cut at 2 3/4″ x 5″, and a panel of Whisper White at 2 1/2″ x 4 3/4.” Onto the white panel, I stamped three butterflies, starting in the middle: one in Pale Papaya, one in Flirty Flamingo, one in Soft Succulent. I adhered the white panel to the Soft Succulent panel.

I adhered some Pale Papaya 3/8″ ribbon to the back of the Soft Succulent panel before popping it up on Stampin’ Dimensionals onto the card base. I then stamped a sentiment from Happy & Heartfelt on a small banner piece from the Tasteful Labels Dies in Soft Succulent, and adhered it to the front.

I finished with a little bling from the 2021-23 Jewels. I hope you enjoyed my card today. Click on any products below to shop with me!

A Beautiful Silhouette!

One of my favorite products from the brand new 2022 January-June Mini Catalog is a unique stamp set called Amazing Silhouettes. The four larger stamps in the set create negative space that results in a striking effect.

Isn’t it “amazing?” (See what I did there?) Here’s the lovely stamp set:

This card is a CASE from Michelle Laliberte Quinno, a fellow Stampin’ Pal. I just loved it, and needed a sympathy for a friend of ours, sadly enough. For my project, I started with a card base of Very Vanilla, and then added a panel of Soft Succulent, measured at 5 1/2 by 4 1/4″, and embossed with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. Next, I cut a panel of Crumb Cake at 3″ by 4 3/4″, and then cut a Very Vanilla piece at 2 3/4″ by 4 1/2.” I used a Soft Succulent Ink Pad to stamp the tree image on the Vanilla panel and adhered it to the Crumb Cake.

I wrapped some natural-colored baker’s twine around both panels, and then adhered to the card base. I then used Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the sentiment and punched it out — any sentiment punch will do – fast and easy. I popped it up using Stampin’ Dimensionals, and I was done!

I hope you enjoyed my card today. Click on any products below to shop with me! I can’t wait to hear what you love the most!

Everything’s Coming Up Daffodils (I Wish!)

Okay, so here in Northern Minnesota, it’s definitely not daffodil time, but I AM enjoying using my FREE designer specialty papers from Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration time, happening NOW, and found on p. 4 of the Sale-A-Bration brochure.

Here are the Daffodil papers, which coordinate with the Daffodil Daydream bundle, found on p. 37 of the new January-June Mini Catalog:

I started with a Very Vanilla card base. I then cut four pieces from the Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Papers, available for FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration, which starts on January 4! It’s fun to mix and match these coordinating papers. The strips are 1 1/2″ wide, and about 4″ and 3 3/4″ long. It’s up to you how long you want to make them. The two circles are the same size, slightly offset, and are from the retired Stitched Shapes dies. The striped panel is 3 7/8″ by 5 1/8.” I also cut a panel of Basic Black cardstock at 4″ by 5 1/4″ and then assembled all the layers onto the card. Easy, and totally up to you how you do so.

I cut two layers out of the Amazing Thanks Dies, new in the 2022 January – June catalog — these will be GREAT for so many things! Notice how the word is made up of two layers, adding dimension and color, if you wish!

Once I got the wording glued onto the card, I added a small knot of Pale Papaya 3/8″ ribbon, and some Classic Matte Dots, and I was done! It’s fun to play with paper, and the Daffodil Afternoon DSP from our Sale-A-Bration brochure is a great way to do it!

Here’s a great video about this bundle and coordinating papers!

January Pals Blog Hop: Let’s Sale-A-Brate!

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop in 2022! This month, the theme is Sale-A-Bration. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I’m just getting started with the brand new January-June Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration products (the FREE treasures!). One of my first SAB acquisitions was the Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Papers, found on p. 4 of the Sale-A-Bration brochure, so I chose to create a card focusing on these beautiful papers.

Here are the Daffodil papers, which coordinate with the Daffodil Daydream bundle, found on p. 37 of the new January-June Mini Catalog:

I started with a card base from the Hand Penned Memories and More Cards & Envelopes. The soft Mint Macaron card front provided a pretty background for the rest of the card. (I will obviously have to be using a different envelope of my own.) I then cut three pieces from the Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Papers, available for FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration, which starts on January 4! Keep in mind that these cards are larger than the customary A2 cards we often create, so I my three pieces of DSP included two strips measuring 2″ by 6″, and then one piece with the black background, measuring 4 1/4″ by 3 1/2″, and then cut on a diagonal.

I adhered the black DSP pattern to the card base. I cut two banner ends in the narrow strips, and adhered them to the card front. I then stamped a sentiment from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set, also found in the new Mini Catalog. I LOVE all the sentiments, and the font is so cute!

Happy & Heartfelt Stamp Srt

After stamping the sentiment, I used the Everyday Label Punch to punch it out. I fashioned a bow from the Pale Papaya 3/8″ inch ribbon, and then popped the sentiment panel onto the card.

Finally, I popped some Brushed Brass Butterflies onto the card for a cute metallic accent.

Here are some more cards I created using the DSP and the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set:

Here’s a great video about this bundle and coordinating papers!

I hope you enjoyed my card today. Click on any products below to shop with me! I can’t wait to start working my way down my GIGANTIC wishlist from this catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure. And I can’t wait to hear what you love the most!

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on February 9th. Our theme will be Birthday Bash when our team creates birthday projects to celebrate our family and friends.

Hand-Penned in Cinnamon and Mint Macaron!

I have re-discovered the beauty of the Hand-Penned Memories and More Cards and Envelopes. I created these cards for my club members as thank-you’s. I just love the color combination of these Hand-Penned Designer Series papers along with the Heart and Home Doilies, a new product found in the upcoming 2022 January-June Mini Catalog. Thanks to Kristin McNickle at creativestamping.co.nz for the inspiration for this card!

The Hand-Penned Cards and include a beautiful coordinated envelope, and are so pretty in Mint Macaron and Cinnamon Cider. I cut a two-inch banner from the Hand-Penned papers and adhered it to the card base. I then cut a two-inch banner in Basic White cardstock and stamped a partial flower bunch from the Hand-Penned stamp set. I used Cinnamon Cider, Mint Macaron, and Pale Papaya to stamp some color into the images. LOVE this!

I then stamped a sentiment from the brand new Happy and Heartfelt Stamp Set, also found in the upcoming new Mini Catalog. I love every one of these messages in this awesome font!

Happy & Heartfelt Stamp Set

I cut a Heart & Home doily in half and adhered one half to the back of the white banner, and then popped on a bow of the Soft Succulent 3/8″ ribbon. I then added a couple of In-Color Jewels, and I was done!

I hope you like my project! All the products I used are found below. Simply click and shop with me!
