Sweet Soiree Designer Series Paper

Today’s card uses the beautiful Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper. Because it’s a speciality paper, the paper is heavier than our regular designer series paper and this packager has silver foil accents on one side.  It’s really pretty!

Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy to coordinate their paper and cardstock!  On each package of designer series paper, all of the colors that will beautifully match are listed on the back.  Sweet Soiree coordinates with:  Berry Burst, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Marina Mist, Olive Olive, Powder Pink, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White and our Silver Foil.

  • Marina Mist:  (base of card) 11″ x 4-1/4″  scored at 5-1/2″    scrap for scalloped square
  • Rich Razzleberry:  5-1/4″ x 4″       scrap for scalloped square
  • Sweet Soiree Designer Series Paper:  5″ x 3-3/4″
  • Whisper White:  scrap for square with sentiment
  • Vellum:  scraps for 4 leaves

  • Attach Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Marina Mist scalloped square.
  • You can add a small amount of adhesive to the vellum leaves or simply attach them to the Stampin’ Dimensionals already on the back of the square.
  • Stamp your greeting first and then die cut it using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
  • Finish the card by adding two enamel shapes on both sides of the sentiment.

If you have any questions about this card, please don’t hesitate to email me! I’m happy to help!

Don’t forget that you’ll receive free product for every $50 purchase now during Sale-a-Bration! One of the most popular items in the catalog are the cute Party Pandas.

Charming Cafe Bundle

Happy Friday! Today is our youngest daughter’s 35th birthday! Wow, it’s hard to believe our “baby” is 35!  When she was born my husband was in the Navy. The month before her birth, he left on the aircraft carrier, the U.S.S. America, and didn’t come home until six months later.  Yep, he missed her birth.  That was really difficult but I had my parents with me at the hospital and my mom was my coach in the delivery room. Sweet memories! Happy Birthday, Erin!!!

Today’s card uses the new bundle, Charming Cafe, from the Occasions Catalog.  The bundle includes the Charming Cafe stamp set and the Cafe Builder Framelits dies (these products can be purchased separately but the bundle saves you 10%). You have the option to leave the center where I have the sentiment (which is included in the bundle) as is or to cut it out. To see all that’s available in this bundle along with some tips for using it, be sure to check out the video below!

  • Powder Pink:  4-1/4″ x 11″ (base of card)  &   3-3/4″ x 5″ (second layer)
  • Whisper White:  5-1/4″ x 4″  (first layer)    &   approx. 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ for the flower frame with sentiment

  • If you’re worried about getting your sentiment straight, stamp it FIRST onto Whisper White cardstock and then use the Framelit to cut the frame out.  After I had colored the frame, I was worried about getting my sentiment crooked.  Stamping it first solves that problem!
  • Emboss the Powder Pink cardstock (top layer) using the Layered Leaves embossing folder.
  • Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the frame up.  You’ll love the dimension it gives to the card.
  • Add a glue dot to the back of your bow to attach it to the card.

Thanks for stopping by! All of the Stampin’ Up! products I used to make my card are listed below and simply clicking any of them will take you to my online store.  Don’t forget that for every $50 purchase, you can choose a Sale-A-Bration gift!

Have a great weekend!

Petal Passion

Hello!  Today I’m sharing a card I made last November in Salt Lake City during the OnStage convention.  It uses lots of new product from the Occasions Catalog and it’s all from the Petal Passion Suite (towards the end of the post you’ll find the link to my Stampin’ Up! online store for all of these products):

  • Petal Passion Designer Series Paper – All of the sheets are black and white.  You can leave them as is or color them.
  • Petal Palette Stamp Set – 15 different stamps
  • Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon – This is very similar to the organza ribbon we used to carry that has since retired and it was my all time favorite ribbon.  Just like the retired one, this new ribbon can be spritzed any color you want and it ties into a bow beautifully.
  • Petal Passion Embellishments – metal embellishments in a flower (with a pearl center) and a leaf.

The Petal Passion Suite also comes with a bundle that includes the Petal Palette Stamp Set and the Petals & More Thinlits Dies. I didn’t use the dies on today’s project but I did include the bundles in the product list below because you’ll save 10% if you purchase the two products as a bundle.

  • Petal Passion Designer Series:  3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″       3/4″ x 3-3/4″
  • Calypso Coral:  5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″  Scored at 4-1/4″
  • Smoky Slate:  3/4″ x 4″
  • Whisper White:  scrap for circle punch

 

If you have any questions about today’s card, don’t hesitate to ask!  I love hearing from you and anyone who leaves a comment or question in the month of January will have their name entered in a draw to win some Stampin’ Up! goodies from me!

We’ve had several rainy days here in California and I love it!  Hoping today is more of the same! Have a great day!

Glitter Queens Blog Hop – All Things New

Thank you for stopping by and visiting the January Glitter Queens Blog Hop! It’s a new year and we have a brand new logo! Our theme this month is All Things New and boy, oh boy, there’s so much new!!!! The Occasions Catalog just launched and it’s filled with brand new products PLUS Sale-A-Bration is in full swing which means that with every $50 purchase, you earn free product!!

My box features lots of new goodies!

  • Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies – Occasions Catalog
  • Picture Perfect Party 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper – Occasions Catalog
  • Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon – Occasions Catalog
  • Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie (crinkle-cut shredded paper) – Occasions Catalog
  • 1-1/8″ Scallop Circle Punch – Occasions Catalog
  • 1-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch – Occasions Catalog
  • Celebrate You Thinlits Dies – Sale-A-Bration Catalog
  • Amazing You stamp set – Sale-A-Bration Catalog

The box couldn’t be simpler to make with the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies.  Simply cut two of the larger die, glue the sides together and your box is ready! I’ll be honest, when I first saw the box at OnStage in Salt Lake City, my thoughts were that I didn’t need a box framelit.  So glad I didn’t listen to myself because you can make the box so fast (and it’s really cute)!  The box itself measures 4-7/8″ x 3″ x 5/8″ and what’s so fun is that our new Whisper White Narrow Notecards  & Envelopes fit inside perfectly! I chose to put a gift card inside my box along with our new Shredded Crinkle-cut Paper (this item is packaged with THREE bags of paper in dark pink, silver and white).

I also used the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies, a Sale-A-Bration choice when you make a $100 purchase.  These dies will be in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog and wouldn’t it be great to get them FREE now??

In this version, I wrapped Berry Burst Metallic Ribbon around the box.  If you love Berry Burst, you are going to love this ribbon because it’s gorgeous!

All of the supplies I used will be listed at the end of my post and if you’d like to place an order, simply click any of the products and you’ll be directed to my Stampin’ Up! website.

I hope you’ll continue around the hop and visit everyone!  Davette Strange Miller is up next and you can visit her here! Here’s a list of the Glitter Queens in the hop today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
