This is my third and final post on a new bundle called A Big Thank You.  My card today is built with two new favorite colors of mine, Coastal Cabana and Pineapple Punch.

A big thank you - Coastal Cabana - Pineapple Puch - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

 

The bundle includes a stamp set with great sentiments and images, along with a single die that says it all!  I created my own background using the floral stamps from the stamp set.  Notice the two-step stamping of both the Coastal Cabana and Pineapple flowers.  Easy!

A Big Thank You Stamp Set

I cut out two Thank You sentiments from both Coastal Cabana and Basic Black cardstock and offset one with the other, gluing them on to the card base.  The “So Much” is heat embossed in white embossing powder onto black card stock and cut out.  I added a Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon around the card before affixing it to the Whisper White Thick Card Base.  The Black Rhinestones add just a touch of “Bling.”

I have been having lots of fun with the new bundle “A Big Thank You” from the Annual Catalog.

A Big Thank You 2 - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin' - Stampin' Up!

The bundle includes a stamp set with great sentiments and images, along with a single die that says it all!

A Big Thank You Stamp Set

This card started with a card base of Gray Granite with a panel of Petal Pink measured at 4″ X 5 1/4″ and then a layer of the granite-design from the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.  It really adds a nice textured look to the card.  In addition, this design picks up the Petal Pink background beautifully!

I cut out the Thank You sentiment from the Champagne Foil Paper and attached to the card.  The sentiment “You Are the Best” is stamped in Gray Granite ink on a scrap of Petal Pink and punched out with the Everyday Label punch — so handy!  I gathered a little Linen Thread behind it, and then added two pearls to set it off.

Holiday Paper Shares!

Have you received your new Holiday Catalog yet?  If you have, you’ve noticed the beautiful papers — Stampin’ Up! has once again outdone themselves.  Here’s a fun video to give you a sneak peek!

Screen Shot 2018-08-16 at 11.22.30 AM

I’ve decided to do a Paper Share of the fabulous new papers from the Holiday Catalog.  It’s a great way for you to see the papers in person, try them out, and order more of what you want!

New Designer Series Paper Share – $16.00 plus $4.00 for First Class Mail shipping

You will receive one 6×6 sheet of each design from the following DSP packs as well as four Foil Edged Cards & Envelopes (the number behind the name indicates how many 6×6 sheets of that paper pack you will receive):

  • All Is Bright – 6
  • Festive Farmhouse – 6
  • Santa’s Workshop Specialty – 6
  • Joyous Noel Specialty – 6
  • Joyous Noel 6″x 6″ Glimmer Paper – 3 (one of each color)
  • Frosted Floral Specialty – 6
  • Country Lane – 6
  • Galvanized Metallic Paper – 1
  • Toil & Trouble – 6
  • Black Foil Sheets – 1
  • Gold Foil Edged Cards & Envelopes – 2
  • Silver Foil Edged Cards & Envelopes – 2

In all, you’ll receive 47 – 6” x 6” sheets of designer or specialty paper and four cards & envelopes!

Double DSP Share – $32.00 + $6 Shipping by Priority Mail – if you’d like double shares of the designer paper, that’s fine too.  I’ll cut the designer paper sheets into 6×12 so that you’ll be able to get 3 full A2 size card fronts from each sheet (except for the Joyous Noel 6×6 Glimmer Paper, you’ll get double sheets of those since they’re already precut).

Anyone is welcome to join in my share (please note, I can only ship to addresses within the US).  If you’d like to join, email the following information to marya2hanson@gmail.com.

  • Your first and last name
  • The email address that is connected to your Paypal account. I only accept Paypal for payment unless you are a customer of mine.  If you are a customer, I will accept payment by check.

Deadline to order:  Friday, September 7!

A Big Thanks!

A Big Thank You - Delightful Daisy - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin' - Stampin' Up!

I think I write Thank You cards more than any other kind of card.  If you’re like me, this new bundle from the Annual Catalog will become a staple in your craft room.  The bundle includes a stamp set with great sentiments and images, along with a single die that says it all!

A Big Thank You Stamp Set

This card is built using PURPLES!  I love both new purple inks from the Color Revamp.  I used a card base of Highland Heather and then added a quick length of Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to the panel before adding a panel of Basic Black cardstock along with a Whisper White.  You could use any size panels you want, depending on your preference.

I cut the Thank You sentiment die out of Granny Apple Green and adhered it to the card panels.  I then inked a Daisy pattern from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape onto Gorgeous Grape card stock.  I punched out two daisies, both the patterned one and a solid one and layered it onto the card.  I stamped a Daisy center in Daffodil Delight ink, and fussy cut it out.

Pals August Blog Hop: Cut It Out!

2018-pbh-pineapplepunch 200 x 200Welcome to the Pals August 2018 Blog Hop. We love to cut it out so this month our creations feature our favorite “cuts” using punches, Framelits, and Thinlits from the current Stampin’ Up! catalog.  

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

P.S. You're The Best 2 - Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper - Copper Thread - Stitched Shapes Framelits - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin' - Stampin' Up!

My project uses the new stamp set “P.S. You’re the Best” from the Annual Catalog.  I love the look of the old typewriter, and the fonts in this set are really pretty.  Notice there is a background texture stamp, along with other stamps you can use to decorate the ‘paper’ coming out of the typewriter or to create fun backgrounds.

p.s. you're the best stamp set

I started this card with a Thick Whisper White card base of 8 1/2″ X 11″, scored at 4 1/4″.  I adhered a panel cut at 4 1/8″ X 5 3/8″ from the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper in the pretty marble stone pattern.  Though it is hard to photograph, it provides a nice textured background.

I cut two of the largest circles using the Stitched Shape Framlits Dies — one using the patterned piece from Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper, and one using Coastal Cabana card stock.  On the Coastal Cabana piece, I used Coastal Cabana ink to stamp various bits of alphabet background, both full strength and stamped off once.

I then stamped the typewriter stamp on a scrap piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock in Gray Granite ink.  Then I used the small background texture stamp across the ‘keys’ of the typewriter in stamped-off Coastal Cabana.  I used Calypso Coral ink to stamp my sentiment across the typewriter paper.  I then “fussy cut” the typewriter out and attached Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back.

P.S. You're The Best 1 - Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper - Copper Thread - Stitched Shapes Framelits - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin' - Stampin' Up!

To assemble the card, I simply layered the two circle cut-outs on the card panel, and then used some Copper Metallic Thread to adhere to the back of the typewriter before popping it down onto the panel.  I stamped the “I love you” sentiment right onto the card panel.  Doesn’t that granite-styled Designer Series Paper add some nice texture?  I finished the card off with some pearlized embellishments from the Share What You Love Suite.  The products needed to make this project are at the bottom of this post!

p.s. You're the Best - Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper - Stitched Shapes Framelits - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin' - Stampin' Up!
