One Layout Covers It All!

I love it when the thought process is taken right out of stamping, and all I have to do is have fun!  With this layout, all you have to do is grab your favorite Designer Series Paper and a stamp set or two, and you can get all your occasions covered!  Take a look at what I did with the Tutti Frutti DSP:

Tutti Frutti DSP 3 - Colorful Seasons - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'Tutti Frutti DSP - Perennial Birthday - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'Tutti Frutti DSP 2 - Color Me Happy - Stampin' Blends - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'Tutti Frutti DSP 4 - Picture Perfect Birthday - Up North Stampin' - Mary Hanson

Thanks to Susan Itell, fellow stamper, for this great layout idea!  These cards all start with a 5 1/2  x 8 1/2″ card base, scored at 4 1/4″.  Then take a piece of DSP, your choice, and cut it to 5 1/2 x 4 1/8″.  Cut out a white panel (to stamp on) measuring 5 1/2 ” x 2 1/4″.  Then cut a cardstock panel that you will mount the white panel onto, measuring 5 1/2 x 2 3/8″.   That’s the hardest part, and it isn’t even hard!

Your next step is to have fun stamping a sentiment or other objects onto the white cardstock. The first card is a wine glass from Half Full with a sentiment from Colorful Seasons.  The “Happy Birthday” sentiment is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.   The “Thank You” stamp is from the Color Me Happy stamp set, and the “Celebrate” sentiment is from the Picture Perfect stamp set.  The lanterns are also from the Color Me Happy stamp set, with one lantern punch-out from the Color Me Happy kit.

There’s no doubt that a fool-proof layout will save you time, and a lot of deliberating about WHAT TO MAKE. I hope this layout comes in handy for you as well!

Pals April Blog Hop: Families First

2018-pbh-combo4Welcome to the Pals April  2018 Blog Hop. Join us while we put “Families First” in our hop this month. The Stampin’ Pretty Pals will inspire you with family-related projects like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduation or Family Vacations. You may be just starting or hopped over from another Pal. In either case, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

I have a special graduation card to share with you today! My daughter Abby is graduating from a North Dakota State University this early May, with a major in Biology with an emphasis in Pre-Health.  She’s thinking about becoming a Physician’s Assistant.  We’re so excited to see what her next adventure might be!  This card was designed for her graduation.

Right Picture Perfect Birthday - Graduation - Petal palette Designer Series Paper

North_Dakota_State_BisonThe school colors (Go, Bison!) are Green and Gold, so I used the Stampin’ Blends in Old Olive and Daffodil Delight to color a floral background on a beautiful panel of black and white Petal Passion Designer Series Paper.  The large flower reminds me of a college ‘mum!’  Yes??  I mounted this 3 7/8″ by 5 1/8″ floral panel to a piece of Basic Black cardstock measuring 4″ by 5 1/4″.  Finally, I adhered these to an Old Olive card base measuring 8 1/2″ by 5 1/2,” scored at 4 1/4.”

Close Up Angled - Picture Perfect Birthday - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

I created the sentiment using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies with Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock.  Then I made a party noisemaker by embossing gold stripes on Basic Black cardstock using the Picture Perfect stamp and fussing cutting it.  The ‘head’ part of the noisemaker was made with gold embossing powder on white.  I tied a small gold Mini Tinsel Trim around it and shredded the ends to add a little dimension.  Finally, I added some Gold Glitter Flakes across the card, because my girl likes her sparkles, just like her mama!  It looks beautiful when the sun catches it!

Picture Perfect Birthday Long View - Petal Palette Designer Series Paper - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

The Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set is so great for many of life’s celebrations.  Just look at all those beautiful sentiments in those awesome fonts!  You can get yours now by clicking on the supply photos below, or clicking on the Link above to Go Shopping!

I am “Green with Envy!”

As the Stampin’ Pals attend OnStage without me, (yes, I’m pouting just a little, even though I did get to attend last year), I took part in the “Green with Envy” Pals Card Swap recently.  Card Swaps are such a fun way to get wonderful creations from other crafters while sharing your won creation with them!  I chose to create a card using the Sweet Soiree Designer Series Papers.

Sweet Soiree Designer Series Paper - Petal Palette - Butterfly Thinlits - Silver Foil - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin' .jpeg

Honestly, what is NOT to love about these beautiful papers teeming with silver foil accents?

Sweet Soiree DSP

They’re GORGEOUS in person, really.  I used two of the paper designs and mounted on a card base of Old Olive card stock.  Before adhering, I wrapped a length of the Berry Burst 3/8′ Metallic Edge Ribbon around the middle of the card.  I stamped a sentiment from the Petal Palette Stamp Set onto Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the Tailored Tag Punch.  I popped that onto the card with Dimensionals, and decorated with some Basic Rhinestones — you can’t have enough bling!  I adhered a silver foil butterfly I cut out using the Butterflies Thinlits Dies, and that was it!

So even though I was “Green with Envy,” I DID get the opportunity to swap cards with many talented papercrafters!  Thanks, Pals!
