Stampin’ Up! Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper

gingham gala designer series paper

Our Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper has been very popular, so much so, that it’s been on backorder for quite some time.  Now that it is due to be back in stock early next week, I’ve been enjoying making cards with this bright, cheerful paper! 

Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper

Each package of Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper includes 40 sheets.  There are 8 sheets in each of these five colors:  

Balmy Blue

Daffodil Delight

Grapefruit Grove

Highland Heather

Lemon Lime Twist

I used one of the Lemon Lime Twist sheets and paired it with Pool Party cardstock (Lemon Lime Twist is a 2017-2019 In Color and will be retiring soon).

The sentiment, from the Needle & Thread stamp set (which really has some nice sentiments) was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento Ink. I cut the sentiment and the Pool Party circle underneath it, using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies and the Big Shot.  

Bundle & Save 10%!

Purchase the Needle & Thread Bundle which includes the Needle & Thread stamp set and the coordinating Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies and save 10%!

All of the supplies used to create today’s card can be found in the supply list below.

  • Cut a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock that measures 11″ x 4-1/4″.  Fold in half.  This will be the base of your card.
  • Cut a piece of Pool Party cardstock that measures 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Attach to the base of the card.
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock that measures 5″ x 3-3/4″.  Run it through the Big Shot using the Quilt Top Embossing Folder.  Attach to the Pool Party cardstock. 
  • Cut a piece of Pool Party cardstock that measures 5″ x 2″.  Cut a piece of Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper that measures 5″ x 1-3/4″.  Attach to the front of the Pool Party cardstock.  Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and attach to the front of the card.  
  • Stamp the sentiment in Memento Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  Cut it out using the Big Shot and the Layering Circles Framelits.  Cut another circle just a little bit larger in Pool Party.  Using Snail, attach the sentiment to the Pool Party circle.  Then, add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the left side and attach to the card.  
  • Make a bow using Linen Thread.  Add a very small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the center of the bow, on the backside, and attach below the sentiment.
  • Add three rhinestones to the embossed cardstock to finish the card!

Retiring Soon!

Every year five Stampin’ Up! colors retire and five new ones are introduced.  It’s always hard when you have to say goodbye to some of your favorites.  Although the Annual Catalog is available until June 3, 2019, many products will sell out once the retirement list is announced mid-April.  One of the first products to go will be the retiring In Colors.  Every single year, they sell out way before the end of the catalog.

One of the things I love about Stampin’ Up! is the color coordination. If there’s a color you love, you can rest assured that there will be a matching stamp pad, ink refills, cardstock, ribbon and markers!   (more…)

Dahlia Fold Flower – Picture Tutorial

Dahlia Fold Flower

I promised a picture tutorial for making a Dahlia Fold flower and today’s the day! Making these flowers is very addictive and so much fun.  I will say that at first, I got a little frustrated folding the tiny pieces but with practice it has turned from frustrating to fun. Practicing with larger circles is the key to getting the technique down.  

You can also watch a step by step video for making these flowers by clicking here

Tomorrow my email subscribers will be receiving a PDF version of the directions for making the flower and the directions for today’s card. If you haven’t signed up yet be sure to do it today so you won’t miss out.  You can find the sign up form on the sidebar of my blog where it says “Keep in Touch.”  (more…)

Hello Cupcake Sale-a-Bration Free Gift

Floral Romance Designer Series Paper

It’s Friday! I hope you have plans for the weekend that involve play and/or relaxation! 

Today’s card uses two designs from the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper and an embossed piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I have to admit that combining two different pieces of Designer Series Paper is out of my comfort zone but I’m pretty happy with how these two printed designs look together.   (more…)

Stampin’ Up! Floral Romance

Floral Romance Designer Series Paper

Today is a two card day! This week I’ve been showcasing Stampin’ Up! Floral Romance Designer Series Paper.  When I created both of today’s cards last weekend, I had no idea that the Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies, used to create the leaves, would be sold out before I could share them. If you were unable to purchase the dies, another option for creating leaves is our Sprig Punch or the Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies.   (more…)
