New At SU : Ringed with Love Fun Fold

 




Welcome to our NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin! Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin! with creative paper crafting ideas to share with you. Today, we are featuring Fun/ Fancy Fold Cards.


I chose a very simple fun fold. You start with a regular top fold card, 11 inches by 4 1/4 inches, and score it at 5 1/2 inches and then you cut 1 inch off of each side. 

I used Evening Evergreen for my card base and 2 pieces of Designers Series Paper(DSP) from the Rings of Love DSP. This DSP is a FREE gift with qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration so it is while supplies last or August 31, 2022 Whichever comes first

You will need two pieces that are 3/4 inch by 5 1/4 inch for the side panels and 1 piece that is 2 inches by 5-1/4 inches for the middle panel, and 1 Very Vanilla panel that is 2 inches by 5 1/4.


For the front of the card, I ran a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock through the Stamp' Cut and Emboss machine in the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing folder. I stamped the ringed image on a piece of very Vanilla with Soft Suede Ink and die-cut it. I daubed the edges of both pieces with some Soft Suede ink to give them some depth.  I fussy cut the butterfly and the mushrooms from the DSP


For the sentiments, I used the Charming Sentiments stamp set and the coordinating Silhouette dies. The inside sentiment is stamped in Evening Evergreen. I used another butterfly that I fussy cut from the DSP

New At SU: Simply Sale-a-Bration!

 


Welcome to our NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin! Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin! with creative paper crafting ideas to share with you. Today, we are featuring Sale-A-Bration products and we are #simplestamping using only stamps, ink, and paper and ONE accessory OR tool (not both)... and at least one of those items is a Sale-a-Bration product.


 # Simplestamping is a lot harder than it sounds! When you have a craft room full of tools and accessories that you want to use. It's a lot harder than it sounds. I made 6 different cards using various Sale-A-Bration products before I created one that was simple.


The Sale-A-Bration product that I used is the Wonderful World Stamp Set and Designer Series Paper. Remember Sal-A-Bration products are FREE with a qualifying purchase and they are limited to while supplies last or August 31, 2022, whichever comes first



I stamped the background on a thick Basic White cardstock using Starry Sky Classic Stampin' Ink. I used the Deckled Rectangles dies to cut a piece of Starry Sky cardstock and a smaller piece of Basic White


After I stamped the flower image with Starry Sky ink, I stamped a second image and fussy cut the top of the flower and popped it up with a dimensional. 


For my second card, I used a piece of the Wonderful World DSP. I used the Sending Dies from the Sending Smiles bundles to cut my sentiment and sentiment strip.

New at SU: Sending Smiles In Colors

 


Welcome to our NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin! Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin! with creative paper crafting ideas to share with you. Today, we are showcasing the new  Stampin' Up! 2022-2024 In-Colors. Every year when Stampin' Up! introduces their new annual catalog they also debut a collection of 5 new In-Colors. This year I immediately fell in love with all the new colors. That has never happened before. I always have one favorite but this year I love them all!! 



I used the new Sending SMiles stamp set to create this card and 3 of the new colors. The base is Parakeet Party with a layer of the new In-color Designer Series Paper(DSP) I ran the Basic White through the die-cut machine so I would have a little stitching on the edge and then I used my Stamparatus to get the perfect placement of my stamps. Since this Birthday card is for my mom I have to add a little Bling because my mom loves the Bling! I used the new In- Color dots and the Brass Butterflies


I love the new Limited Edition Stamp set. I will probably stamp every envelope I sed with the Paper Hug from Me stamp. 


This is a card I created for my mom for Mother's Day I used the New Tahitian Tide cardstock and Ink and a small piece of the  DSP


To give my card a little more visual interest I used the Stitched Hismy dies for the stitching on the mat. I stamped the Sunflower  from the Celebrating Sunflowers Stamp Set in TT on so saffron and cut it out, then I layer a basic white scalloped flower die cut and popped the center up with a dimensional

New at SU Seas The Day

 New at SU Monthly Blog Hop



Welcome to our NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin! Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin! with creative paper crafting ideas to share with you. Today, we are showcasing Stampin' Up! products by CASEing the Catalog. CASE means Copy And Share Everything. So today we are all selecting a sample from the Stampin' Up 2021-2022 Annual Catalog to CASE but changing it up some with new products from the Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalog. 


My choice from the annual catalog is on page 12. This is the card that convinced me I needed the Layering Diorama Dies!  I picked it so I can play with my new dies and I decided to use a few different products from the January to June Mini Catalog. I  kept the basic design and colors but made it a Shadow Box Card and change the greenery and fish to items from the Seas the Day Stamp Set.



My CASE





I watched a lot of videos on YouTube on how to make Shadow Box cards. I made a prototype from some cheap paper so I could play around with the placement of the diorama dies and the Gentle Waves background stamp.  I used the Gentle Waves with Balmy Blue classic Stampin' Ink on Balmy Blue Cardstock. I used temporary adhesive to hold the box together while I decide on the placement of all the elements and I used the liquid glue to adhere everything on layers 1 and 2 before I used the permanent adhesive on the box. 


I adhered the greenery and the sentiment strip after the box was completely assembled and glued.

The photos really don't show the box or layers so here is a 40-second video so you can see the box and layers.
