Inspired Thoughts -- Checks & Dots

Hello!

REMINDER!!  The Retiring List for the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog has been updated with Discounts for some of the retiring items.  To see the updated list, click here.  A few of the bundles that are in this Mini Catalog carried over to the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog but DID NOT carry over the bundle discount.  If some of those bundles are on your Wish List, now is the time to order the bundle at the discounted price! 

Today's project includes the True Love Designer Series Paper -- another item that will retire at the end of the January - June Mini Catalog in a couple of weeks.  I love, love, LOVE this paper because it has so many great possibilities.  I've featured this paper in a number of posts in the last couple of months so be sure to scroll back through to see all the different ways you can use this paper.  Today, I'm using the paper as a contrasting background to showcase the 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum and the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders.

InspiredThoughts_ChecksDots

This card layout and measurements are exactly the same for both cards.  Isn't it amazing how the change in colors makes such a difference?  Most significant is the frame for the embossed vellum:  Basic White vs Basic Black.  Which do you prefer?

InspiredThoughts_Dots

This card begins with a panel of True Love Designer Series Paper matted with a slightly larger panel of Basic Black cardstock.  A piece of Polished Pink Open Weave ribbon was wrapped around the panels and tied into a bow near the lower left corner of the panels.  The bottom edge of the ribbon is 1-1/4" above the bottom edge of the Designer Series Paper.  The panels were adhered at the center of the Polished Pink card front.

A piece of Basic White cardstock was die cut with a scalloped frame from the Scalloped Contours dies (2-7/16" x 3-3/4").  A piece of Polished Pink 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum was embossed with the Dots folder from the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders and then adhered at the center of the die cut frame.  The scalloped frame was adhered to the card front with the bottom and right edges of the frame 3/16" from the bottom and right edges of the Designer Series Paper panel.  

The "Congratulations" greeting was stamped on a strip of Basic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The stamped strip was matted with a slightly larger strip of Basic Black cardstock.  The greeting was adhered to the Shimmer Vellum with the right end of the greeting flush with the right side of the card front.  Stampin' Seal was used to adhere the greeting strip to the vellum and two Mini Glue Dots were stacked on top of each other were placed at the right end of the greeting strip where it overhangs the vellum and frame.

A narrow strip of True Love Designer Series Paper was adhered along the left edge of a panel of Basic White cardstock with the top and bottom edges of the paper strip flush with the top and bottom edges of the panel and the left side of the paper strip 1/4" from the left edge of the panel.  The panel was adhered at the center of the inside sentiment area of the card base.

The "It's Your Time to be Remembered..." sentiment was stamped on Basic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The sentiment was matted with a slightly larger piece of Basic Black cardstock and framed with a piece of Polished Pink Shimmer Vellum.  The sentiment was adhered near the upper left corner of the panel with the top edge of the sentiment frame 3/8" from the top edge of the panel and the left side of the frame 1/16" from the left edge of the panel.

InspiredThoughts_Dots_Envelope

The envelope flap of the Medium Basic White Envelope was embossed with the Dots Embossing Folder.

Card Measurements

Basic Black:  4" x 5-1/4", 5/8" x 2-3/8", 1-9/16" x 1-11/16"; Basic White:  1/2" x 2-1/4", 2-5/8" x 3-7/8", 4" x 5-1/4", 1-1/2" x 1-5/8"; Polished Pink:  4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2" along the 11" length; 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum (Polished Pink):  1-15/16" x 3-1/4", 1-13/16" x 2"; True Love Designer Series Paper:  3-7/8" x 5-1/8", 11/16" x 5-1/4"; Polished Pink Open Weave ribbon:  18"

The second embossing folder in the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders was used with Soft Succulent Shimmer Vellum for this card.  All of the measurements are the same as for the Congratulations card with the exception of the stamped greeting.

InspiredThoughts_Checks

For the first card, the embossed vellum was adhered directly to the Basic White scalloped frame.  For this card, the embossed vellum was adhered to a piece of Basic White cardstock before adhering at the center of the scalloped frame.  This was done so that the Basic Black scalloped frame would not darken the color of the vellum.

InspiredThoughts_Checks_Inside

Since the sentiment for this card and its vellum frame were smaller than the one used for the first card, I moved the sentiment down the paper strip a bit.  The top edge of the vellum frame is 13/16" from the top edge of the panel and the left edge of the vellum frame is 1/16" from the left edge of the panel.

InspiredThoughts_Checks_Envelope

The Checks Embossing folder was used to emboss the envelope flap of the Medium Basic White Envelope.

Card Measurements

Basic Black:  4" x 5-1/4", 2-5/8" x 4", 5/8" x 2-1/2, 7/8" x 1-1/2"; Basic White:  1/2" x 2-3/8", 1-15/16" x 3-1/4", 4" x 5-1/4", 3/4" x 1-3/8"; Soft Succulent:  4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2" along the 11" length; 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum (Soft Succulent):  1-15/16" x 3-1/4", 1-1/4" x 1-7/8"; True Love Designer Series Paper:  3-7/8" x 5-1/8", 11/16" x 5-1/4"; Soft Succulent Open Weave ribbon:  18"

It's been fun creating simple cards that feature embossing folders for the last couple of weeks.  I hope that I've been able to give you some inspiration for creating a lovely card with a few supplies that you would be happy to gift individually or as a gift box of cards.

Inspired Thoughts -- Thanks & Hello

Hi There!

REMINDER!!  The Retiring List for the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog has been updated with Discounts for some of the retiring items.  To see the updated list, click here.  A few of the bundles that are in this Mini Catalog carried over to the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog but DID NOT carry over the bundle discount.  If some of those bundles are on your Wish List, now is the time to order the bundle at the discounted price!

Last week, my posts featured a couple of full size embossing folders with shimmery papers to demonstrate that an embossing folder can take center stage on a card front using a simple card layout.  This week I'm still featuring embossing folders with shimmery papers; however, even though these folders are smaller, they can still pack a punch for a focal point.

InspiredThoughts_ThanksHello

Unfortunately, my camera had a hard time capturing the embossing and shimmer on these card fronts; but in real life, these cards are simply pretty.  The Thanks & Hello Embossing Folders were used with 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum to provide a fun accent for the greetings on these cards:  the Thanks embossing folder for the Thank You card and the Hello embossing folder for the Thinking of You card.  The card measurements for both cards are exactly the same with the exception of the greetings and sentiments labels.

InspiredThoughts_Thanks

This card begin with a panel of True Love Designer Series Paper matted with a slightly larger panel of Basic Black cardstock.  A piece of White Faux Linen ribbon, from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack, was wrapped around the panels and tied into a knot at the lower left side of the panels.  The bottom edge of the ribbon is 7/8" above the bottom edge of the Designer Series Paper panel.  The panels were adhered at the center of the Pale Papaya card front.

A piece of Pale Papaya Shimmer Vellum was embossed with the Thanks embossing folder and adhered to a piece of Basic White cardstock the same size as the embossed vellum.  The cardstock-backed vellum was matted with a slightly larger piece of Basic Black cardstock and then adhered to the cardstock with the right and bottom edges of the Basic Black mat for the vellum 1/8" from the right and bottom edges of the Designer Series Paper panel.

The "Thank You So Much" greeting, from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set, was stamped on Basic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and matted with a slightly larger mat of Basic Black cardstock.  The label was adhered to the embossed Shimmer Vellum with the right edge of the label mat flush with the right edge of the Shimmery Vellum mat and the bottom edge of the label mat 9/16" above the bottom edge of the Shimmer Vellum.

InspiredThoughts_Thanks_Inside

A strip of True Love Designer Series Paper was adhered across a panel of Basic White cardstock with the right and left edges of the Designer Series Paper strip flush with the right and left edges of the Basic White cardstock.  The bottom edge of the paper strip is 3/8" above the bottom edge of the Basic White panel.  The panel was adhered at the center of the inside sentiment area of the card base.

The "You Make A Difference Every Day" sentiment was stamped on Basic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The cardstock was matted with a slightly larger piece of Basic Black cardstock.  The sentiment was adhered at the center of a piece of Pale Papaya Shimmer Vellum sized to frame the sentiment.  The sentiment was adhered at the lower left corner of the Basic White panel with the bottom and left edges of the Shimmer Vellum 1/16" from the bottom and left edges of the Basic White panel.

A piece of True Love Designer Series Paper was adhered to the envelope flap of the Medium Basic White Envelope.  Paper Snips were used to trim the excess paper from the envelope flap using the edge of the envelope flap as a guide.

Card Measurements

Basic Black:  5/8" x 2-12", 2-11/16" x 3-15/16", 4-1/8" x 5-3/8", 7/8" x 1-1/2"; Basic White:  1/2" x 2-3/8", 2-5/8" x 3-7/8", 3/4" x 1-3/8"; Pale Papaya Shimmer Vellum:  2-5/8" x 3-7/8", 1-3/8" x 2"; Pale Papaya:  5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored at 4-1/4" along the 8-1/2" length; True Love Designer Series Paper:  4" x 5-1/4", 3/4" x 5-1/4", 2-1/4" x 6"; Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack (White Faux Linen):  16"

The second embossing folder in the Thanks & Hello Embossing Folders was used with Fresh Freesia Shimmer Vellum for this card.  All of the measurements are the same as for the Thank You card with the exception of the stamped greeting.

InspiredThoughts_Hello

The "Thinking of You" greeting, from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set, was used for this card front.  The actual stamp image has the words "Thinking of You on Your Special Day".  The words "on Your Special Day" were covered with a piece of repositionable tape, the stamp inked, the tape removed, and then the image stamped on Basic White cardstock.

InspiredThoughts_Hello_Inside

If you have the opportunity to see the 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum in person, I know you are going to be thinking of all the great ways you can use this beautiful vellum to enhance your papercrafting projects. 

I'll be back in a couple of days with another simple card design for another package of embossing folders.

Peaceful Moments -- Thank You

Hi There!

In my last post, I shared a project that puts the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder front and center using a simple card design.  Today's post is another example -- this time using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. 

FriendsAreLikeSeashells_HappyBirthdayPeacefulMoments_HappyBirthday

When you compare and contrast the two card fronts, you'll note some interesting things: 

  • Both cards feature an embossing folder; however the first card uses a 3D embossing folder so the design is more pronounced versus the second card with a regular embossing folder where the design is more subtle
  • Both cards used a paper with a shimmery surface.  The first card used Pearlescent Specialty Paper and the second uses Shimmery White cardstock
  • Both cards use a punch to display the greeting
  • Both cards use a ribbon to ground the greeting
  • Both cards use Rhinestones to create a visual triangle for the greeting
  • With the exception of the ribbons and greeting, the paper measurements for both cards are exactly the same

Needless to say, this type of card design is a quick way to create a card in a hurry.  In addition, if you need to create a stack of cards for a gift, this card design is wonderful with a stamp set, like the Peaceful Moments stamp set, that has a wonderful selection of greetings for the card front and beautifully phrased sentiments for the inside of the card.

PeacefulMoments_HappyBirthday

This card begins with a panel of Shimmery White cardstock embossed with the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder.  The panel was matted with a slightly larger panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock.  A piece of Soft Succulent Open Weave ribbon was wrapped around the panels and tied into a bow near the left side of the embossed panel.  The bottom edge of the ribbon is 1-1/2" above the bottom edge of the embossed panel.  The panels were adhered at the center of the Soft Succulent card front.  

The "Happy Birthday" greeting, from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, was stamped on a piece of Basic White cardstock using Evening Evergreen ink.  The greeting was punched with the oval punch of the Double Oval punch.  A piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock was punched with the scalloped oval punch of the Double Oval punch.  The greeting oval was adhered at the center of the scalloped oval and adhered over the ribbon to the right of the bow using Stampin' Dimensionals.  The right edge of the scalloped oval is 1/4" from the right side of the embossed panel.

Three Rhinestone Basic Jewels were colored with the brush tip of the Dark Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends Marker and adhered to the card front to create a visual triangle for the greeting.

PeacefulMoments_HappyBirthday_Inside

The "Wishing You Every Happiness This Special Day Will Bring" sentiment was stamped at the upper center of a panel of Basic White cardstock using Evening Evergreen ink.

A strip of Evening Evergreen cardstock was embossed with the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder.  A narrow strip of Soft Succulent cardstock was adhered behind the top edge of the embossed cardstock and the two strips were adhered along the bottom edge of the Basic White panel with the right, bottom, and left edges of the two strips flush with the right, bottom, and left edges of the Basic White panel.  The Basic White panel was adhered at the center of the inside sentiment area of the card base.

The envelope flap of the Medium Basic White Envelope was embossed with the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder.  

Take a new look at your embossing folders and give them an opportunity to do more than sit in the background.

Friends Are Like Seashells -- Happy Birthday

Hello!

I love embossing folders.  They add so much texture and interest to a project.  Sometimes they play a subtle role in the background and other times they stand up front and center.  The great thing is that you get to decide.  For this week's posts, I'm putting two embossing folders front and center.

Today's post features the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.  I used it in combination with the coordinating dies and stamps in my last post; however, this time I'm letting the folder do the talking all by itself with the assistance of some Pearlescent Specialty Paper.  I wish a photo could convey how scrumptious the Pearlescent Specialty Paper looks in real life--especially when you add in the amazing detail of the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.

FriendsAreLikeSeashells_HappyBirthday

This card begins with a panel of Pearlescent Specialty Paper embossed with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder and matted with a slightly larger panel of Gold Foil Sheets (adhered using Multipurpose Liquid adhesive).  The panels were adhered at the center of the Flirty Flamingo card front.

A piece of Fine Art Ribbon was folded in half with Mini Glue Dots placed at the fold.  The ribbon was adhered to the card front using Mini Glue Dots with the folded end of the ribbon extending slightly beyond the right edge of the Gold Foil Sheets and the tails of the ribbon pointing toward the left side of the panels.  The bottom edge of the ribbon at the fold end is 1-1/8" above the bottom edge of the embossed Pearlescent panel.  

A strip of Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper was stamped with the "Happy Birthday to my beautiful friend" greeting, from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The ends of the strip were punched with the rounded end slot of the Treasured Tags Pick A Punch.  The greeting label was adhered over the ribbon using Mini Glue Dots with the right end of the label 1/4" from the fold of the ribbon.

Three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels were adhered to the card front to create a visual triangle.

FriendsAreLikeSeashells_HappyBirthday_Inside

A panel of Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper was adhered at the center of the inside sentiment area of the card base.  The "Wishing You The Very Best" sentiment was stamped at the upper center of the panel using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  A panel of Pearlescent Specialty Paper was embossed with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.  The tulip shell, two scallop shells, and a grouping of sea grass was fussy cut with Paper Snips and adhered along the bottom edge of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid adhesive.

FriendsAreLikeSeashells_HappyBirthday_Envelope

A piece of Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper was adhered to the envelope flap of a Medium Basic White Envelope.  Paper Snips were used to trim the excess paper using the envelope flap as a guide.

How easy was that card!!??!!  I love a simple card design.  You'll see this card design again with another embossing folder in my next blog post.  Until then, happy crafting!!

Friends Are Like Seashells

Hi There!

Today's post features another project created using elements from the Sand & Sea Product Suite from the January - June Mini Catalog:  Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set, Seaside Shells dies, Seashells 3D Embossing Folder, and Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper.  

When Stampin' Up! first shared this product suite with Demonstrators last Fall, I was intrigued by the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.  One of the things I have always found frustrating about seashell stamps is that no matter how detailed the image, they could never convey the amazing texture and dimensional detail of seashells.  I could do a good job replicating the colors, but not the dimensional feel.  With the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder, I can now see and feel the texture and dimension of the shells.  Oh, boy!   Needless to say, a photo cannot completely convey the awesomeness of this embossing folder. 

This photo shows the tulip shell image (largest shell) stamped with Sahara Sand and the filler image with stamped off Blushing Bride.  Paper Snips were used to fussy cut the shell.

FriendsAreLikeSeashells_YouAreUnique_Inset

 In this photo, the tulip shell was stamped as described above but was embossed with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder prior to fussy cutting with Paper Snips.  You'll see the border around the shell is a bit larger because the embossing extends a bit beyond the stamped edge of the shell; so I followed the embossed edge.

FriendsAreLikeSeashells_Inset

It really makes a difference -- especially when you see it in real life!  

FriendsAreLikeSeashells

This card begins with a panel of Old Olive cardstock die cut with the large background die from the Seaside Shells dies.  The die was adhered to a panel of Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper matted with a slightly larger panel of Blushing Bride cardstock.  Linen Thread was wrapped three times around the top area of the panels and dies with the ends adhered at the back of the panels.  Note that the Linen Thread was placed behind the die cut at the upper left corner to avoid the area where the tulip shell will be placed.

Starting at the top left and moving in a clockwise circle, the shells on the front of the card are:  tulip shell, small scallop shell, triton shell, large scallop shell, and conch shell.

All of the shells were stamped on Basic White cardstock using Sahara Sand ink.  Blushing Bride ink was used with filler image stamps to color the shells by inking the image, stamping off on a scrap piece of paper, and then stamping over the shell image:  the large rectangular filler image was used for the tulip shell, the small round filler image for the small scallop shell, the small rectangular filler image for the triton shell, the large round filler image for the large scallop shell, the small rectangular filler image (used repeatedly) for the conch shell.

Each stamped image was placed in the embossing folder, the stamped image lined up with the corresponding embossing area, and the embossing folder run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  Once the images were embossed, they were cut out with Paper Snips following the outside edge of the embossing.  The images were adhered on top of their corresponding place on the die cut.

The "Friends Are Like Seashells...You Collect Them Along The Way" greeting was stamped on Basic White cardstock using Misty Moonlight ink.  The greeting was die cut with the notched rectangular die from the Tasteful Labels dies.  The greeting label was adhered at the upper right corner of the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.  The top edge of the label is 1/4" from the top edge of the Designer Series Paper and the right edge of the label is 1/8" from the right edge of the Designer Series Paper.

FriendsAreLikeSeashells_Inside

The "Happy Birthday to my beautiful friend" sentiment was stamped at the upper center of a Basic White panel using Misty Moonlight ink.  Old Olive ink was used to stamp the sea grass images three or four times each -- at varying heights -- at the lower left corner of the panel.

The small and large scallop shells were stamped on Basic White cardstock using Sahara Sand ink, the small and large filler images inked with Blushing Bride ink (stamped off on a scrap piece of paper), embossed with the Seashells 3D embossing folder, and the shells fussy cut with Paper Snips.

The sand dollar image was inked with Sahara Sand ink, stamped off on a scrap piece of paper and stamped on a piece of Basic White cardstock.  The image was die cut with the corresponding die from the Seaside Shells dies.

The sand dollar and scallop shells were adhered at the lower left corner of the panel.  The panel was adhered at the center of the inside sentiment area of the card base.

FriendsAreLikeSeashells_Envelope

A piece of Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper was adhered at the back of the Medium Basic White Envelope flap.  Paper Snips were used to trim away the excess paper using the edge of the envelope flap as a guide.

The Retiring List for the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog has been updated with Discounts for some of the retiring items.  To see the updated list, click here.  A few of the bundles that are in this Mini Catalog carried over to the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog but DID NOT carry over the bundle discount.  If some of those bundles are on your Wish List, now is the time to order the bundle at the discounted price! 

Today's project features a bundle that carried over from the Mini Catalog to the Annual Catalog WITH the Bundle pricing.  Woohoo!  However, when you look at this product suite in the Mini Catalog, you'll see the really awesome Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper and coordinating Seaside Shells die cuts -- unfortunately, these items DID NOT carry over.  I would hate for you to miss getting your hands on these products as they are just beautiful!
