Use Up Those Paper Scraps!

It’s time to use up those paper scraps before ordering brand new paper next week when the Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 Catalog goes live on June 3rd. Today’s card shows a fun way to use those pieces of paper that I know we all have sitting around.

Layered With Kindness stamp set

 

Unfortunately the sentiment, from the stamp set Layered with Kindness, has already sold out.  All stamp sets on the Last Chance List are now available only while supplies last so be sure to pick up your favorites before they’re gone.  You can see everything on the retiring list here

 

Stampin Up Best Dressed

 

The base of my card is Mint Macaron cardstock and I layered it with Purple Posy and Whisper White cardstock.  Such a pretty combination, don’t you think?

I used the Layering Ovals Dies to cut out the sentiment and the two scalloped ovals.  I love this set of dies because you have the option to layer using just a plain oval or you can be a bit more fancy and use the scalloped ones. 

 

Layering Ovals Dies

 

This really is a great way to use up your scraps to create a card to send to someone and brighten their day.  We all really need that right now, don’t we? You can find all the measurements below!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden

Ornate Garden Daisy

 

Sale-a-Bration is officially over but starting today a brand new suite of products is available – The Ornate Garden Suite! My card today showcases one of those new products:  Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper. 

Ornate Garden Suite Early Release

 

Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper

 

It’s hard to see in my photos but this beautiful paper is covered in foil designs so I added some Gold Foil accents using our Gold Foil Sheets

 

 

To create the daisy I used our Daisy Punch (the larger one) to cut a daisy out of gold foil and another one using  Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP).  The Medium Daisy Punch was used to cut another daisy out of the DSP.  To add dimension, I placed a Stampin’ Dimensional between each layer of the daisy (a Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals was used under the smaller daisy).  A Gold Faceted Gem was added to the center of the daisy for some extra sparkle. The Old Olive & Whisper White panel is also popped up with dimensionals. .

 

Ornate Garden DSP

 

I used the Honey Bee stamp set for the sentiment and stamped it in Old Olive ink onto Whisper White Paper. It was cut out using the Layering Ovals Dies. The Gold Foil oval was also cut out using these dies. Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back. 

All the supplies I used can be found in the supply list below.  If you’d like to create today’s card, I’ve included all the measurements below.

Seaside Spray Flowering Foils

Seaside Spray Stampin Up

 

Before sharing my card with you today, I want to let you know that starting tomorrow, March 24th, a selection of current catalog items will be available to earn through Sale-a-Bration. Those are the only details I have but be sure to check back tomorrow to see what’s being offered! 

Today’s card was created using one of the designs in Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.  All of the designs in the package can stand alone but changing up the look is really fun! I used a Light Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blend to color in all the flower petals. Imagine all the possibilities! The very best part? This paper is free with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration, while supplies last!  

 

 

here's a Card stamp set

 

The base of the card is Thick Whisper White with a layer of regular Whisper White on top that was embossed using the Hammered Metal 3D embossing folder and a die-cutting machine.  After coloring the Flowering Foils paper, I adhered it to a piece of Seaside Spray and wrapped a piece of Silver-Metallic Edge Ribbon around the entire piece.  Then I adhered it to the base of the card using Multipurpose Glue.

 

here's a card stamp set

 

The sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Seaside Spray ink and then cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies. Using the Layering Ovals Dies, I cut a scalloped oval in Seaside Spray and then a larger one in Silver Foil.  I layered all the pieces together using Snail adhesive and then added Stampin’ Diensionals to the back and attached it to the front of the card. 

Tomorrow I’ll have a free PDF Tutorial for today’s card but if you want to give it a try today, I’ve included the measurements below the Supply List.

Take good care of yourself!

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils

Flowering Foils Stampin Up

 

To create today’s card I used Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper, a free Sale-a-Bration gift when you place a $50 order (before shipping/tax). You’ll receive (12)  12″ x 12″ sheets of these rose gold and silver foil designs.  This paper is only available until March 31, 2020 or while supplies last

 

 

I also used the stamp set, Seriously the Best, and embossed the sentiment with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I love the boldness of the sentiments in this set and when they’re embossed, a beautiful focal point is created. 

Seriously the Best

 

 

The beauty of this Designer Series Paper is that you can easily add any Stampin’ Up! color to the white areas.  I used Lovely Lipstick ink and applied it with a Sponge Dauber.  It’s a good idea to take a tissue or a soft cloth and rub it over the surface of the paper after applying color to pick up any ink that’s sitting on top of the raised foil. 

How to Heat Emboss

Rub an Embossing Buddy over the surface of your cardstock (this helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder).  Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it.  Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image.  Shake off any excess.  Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool for about 10 seconds to minimize warping of your paper. Direct the heat over your image and watch the magic happen!

Stampin’ Up! Coastal Weave Embossing Folder

Bloom & Grow Stampin Up

 

The card I’m sharing with you today was created using Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  If you’d like to make today’s card, you can find all the measurements below the Supply List. 

 

Best Dressed Designer Series Paper

 

One of the colors I used in today’s card is Lovely Lipstick, which is one of the 2018-2020 In Colors and will be retiring very soon! Anything in our retiring colors (paper, ink refills, stamp pads, etc.) always tend to sell out fast once the retiring list is published so if you love Lovely Lipstick, like I do, I’d recommend stocking up now! 

  

Best Dressed Designer Series Paper

 

The other colors I used are Whisper White and Petal Pink.  The sentiment is from the stamp set Bloom & Grow and it was stamped in Memento Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  It was cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered to a scalloped oval in Lovely Lipstick, cut out with the Layering Ovals Dies. To complete the card, I added three Glitter Enamel Dots in Melon Mambo.

Stampin’ Up! So Very Vellum & Peaceful Thoughts

So Very Vellum Designer Series Paper

 

Today’s card was created using the beautiful So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper is FREE with a $50 order until March 31, 2020 or while supplies last!! Each package contains 6 sheets of 12″ x 12″ paper in Pool Party, Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam (2 of each color). It’s so pretty! 

 

So Very Vellum Designer Series Paper

 

The base of the card is Purple Posy cardstock as well as the smaller layer which was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Because vellum is very sheer, I was a bit apprehensive about attaching the vellum to the cardstock but I used Mini Glue Dots, one in each corner, and you can’t even see them! 

 

So Very Vellum Designer Series Paper

 

The Peaceful Moments stamp set was used to stamp the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies.  The larger Purple Posy scalloped oval was cut out with the Layering Ovals Dies.  The Stitched Shapes Dies coordinate not only with the Layering Ovals Dies but the Layering Circles Dies and Layering Squares Dies

So Very Vellum Designer Series Paper

 

To complete the card, I added three Glitter Enamel Dots in Gorgeous Grape.
