Beauty in Diagonals!

I had so much fun with a card design that I saw on a blog by Lisa Curcio.  Even though I used a retired sentiment from the “Incredible Like You” stamp set, you can see how any sentiment would work beautifully.  I love the look of the diagonal papers, and it’s so easy!  Here are three different looks I did:

Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper - Incredible Like You - Peaceful Poppies Elements - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

The card above uses the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Papers.  Start with a card base of 4 1/4″ by 11″, scored at 5 1/2″.  Take a panel of Designer Series Paper of which you want to use BOTH sides.  Cut it at 3 1/2″ by 4 1/4″.  Cut the paper diagonally from corner to corner.  Fit one panel into the bottom corner of the card, making sure the 4 1/4″ side fits right across the bottom.  FLIP the other triangle, and fit it across the other side of the bottom.  Here are a couple of other takes on the card:

Best Dressed Designer Series Paper - Incredible Like You - Petal Pink - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

This card uses the Best Dressed Designer Series Papers.

Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Papers 2 - Peaceful Poppies Elements - Incredible You - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

Here’s one with the Poppies Papers again.  Once you get the card built, take flowers that coordinate and cascade them down the side of the left diagonal.  Embellish, and you’re done!  Here is the link to Lisa Curcio’s blog where she has a video that explains with visuals.  Below are the products I used to make these cards.

More Projects From Stampin’ Up!’s Share the Sunshine Campaign!

Hello, Friends!

Covid 2

As I mentioned in my last post, in response to the Covid-19 Outbreak, Stampin’ Up!’ has developed a 15-page PDF download called SHARE SUNSHINE with a mix of clever and oh-so-sweet sentiments and images. Some are funny and some are packed with heart – and 100% of the proceeds are being donated to charity. If you have access to a color printer, then you can download the PDF and make cards for projects for all the important people in your life, and those who are literally ‘in the trenches,’ working to make our world safer for us.  Here’s yesterday’s post with some other projects.

Some more projects I made with this download:

HERE is the LINK for you to instantly download your own!  I bought the download, (remember 100% or the proceeds go to charity) on Whisper White cardstock, and then used dies and punches to cut out the sentiments and make some fun projects.  Here are some cards I made with the Share Sunshine PDF download. Note the sentiments in each one, because they are all from the download:

Birds and Botanical Suites for a Pal!

I’m sending this card to a Stampin’ Pal of mine who needs a pick-me-up.  I love the Bird Ballad Suite, how easy it is to color these fun birds!

Botanical Prints Medley - Bird Ballad Suite - Music From the Heart - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

The card base is in Pretty Peacock, and then I used a laser cut panel from the Botanical Prints Medley.  I LOVE the whole medley, and you get a ton of stuff!

Botanical Prints Medley

I stamped a bird pattern from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Memento Black Ink.  I then used Stampin’ Up!’s Stampin’ Blends Markers to color in my little bird scene. You can use any colors you want to.  I cut it out with the circle die in the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

Then:  I used a sentiment banner and some baker’s twine that were left over from a Paper Pumpkin Kit.  That’s the wonderful thing about the kits — there are always fun little items left to use on a different project!

“Scrub” Cards for Abby!

Our daughter Abby is working as a phlebotomist at an area health system.  I wanted to make these cards for her to give to her co-workers…maybe with a treat, as a little pick-me-up! Aren’t they fun?  The 3 x 3″ notecards and envelopes are from Stampin’ Up! — the Best Dressed Notecards and Envelopes.

Scrubs - Something for Baby - Varied Vases - Best Dressed Notecards - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

The pattern for the ‘scrubs’ came from the stamp set called “Something for Baby” with some modifications.  The baby onesie became a scrub with a v-neck!  My inspiration came from a card by Peggy Parenteau that I found on Facebook.  Here it is:

Scrub from something for baby

I love the way this card fits so beautifully with the thank-you sentiment!

The Best Dressed Note Cards and Envelopes are so cute, with a little wash of color on each.

Beautiful floral patterns, cheery spring images & colors and gorgeous intricate die-cuts combine to create the NEW Ornate Garden Suite!  You can enjoy these awesome products from the NEW Annual Catalog right now during the Early Release!

I’ve got all the information on the entire suite below, but first — today I want to show you a beautiful card I made with the gorgeous Ornate Garden Designer Series Papers.  Here it is:

Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper - Stampin' Blends - Daisy Lane - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

The Designer Series papers include beautiful spring floral patterns on one side, and color-able gold foil on the other side.  I colored the flowers with our Stampin’ Blends — the colors are listed below in the Product list.  Isn’t it beautiful?  So fun to work with!

Ornate papers 1

I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut the rectangle out of the middle, and then I just replaced the two panels with the white pace cut out.  It makes such a beautiful effect.

Ornate Gardens Designer Series Papers - Hearth - Lovely Lipstick - Daisy Lane - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

The sentiment is from the Daisy Lane stamp set, and punched out with the Timeless Label Punch.  I ‘stole’ the metallic bee from the Botanical Prints Product Medley!

Ornate Style Gold Embossed Thank You Card
I love the three-panel design of this pretty Thank You card by Stampin’ Up!  The background is a Mint Macaron card base with a Mint Macaron Ornate Floral embossed layer. The Ornate Style floral focal point was stamped onto Whisper White with VersaMark, embossed with Gold Powder, then sliced apart with the Paper Trimmer and popped up with Dimensionals.  The sentiment is adorned with flowers and leaves from the Ornate Border Dies and some Terracotta Tile 1/4″ Ribbon.
03.03.20_SAMPLE_2_ORNATE_GARDEN
Ornate Thanks So Grateful Card
This pretty card features a cheerful pattern from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper layered onto an Old Olive card base. The Ornate Thanks sentiment is stamped onto a rectangle die-cut made with the Ornate Layers Dies. Decorative borders were added to the Old Olive layer with the Ornate Border Dies. The sentiment is decorated with flower images from the Ornate Style stamp set and Old Olive Ornate Garden Ribbon. Plus, check out those bright and shiny gold metal Gilded Gems!

Ornate Garden Colored Thank You Card
Stampin’ Up! used the gorgeous gold foil Ornate Garden DSP for the background of this 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ card. Some of the images on the white & gold DSP were spotlight colored with Petal Pink and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. The die-cut layers are from the Ornate Borders Dies and it tied up with Old Olive Ornate Garden Ribbon.
03.03.20_SAMPLE_1_ORNATE_GARDEN
Ornate Thanks Mini Note Card
That 3″ x 3″ note card looks like it might be in the brand new In Color called Bumblebee!  It’s a little brighter than Crushed Curry and a little darker than Daffodil Delight.  The intricately cut Terracotta Tile layer is die-cut with the Ornate Layers Dies and the sentiment is embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The Gilded Gems look like shiny gold water droplets!
