Golden Honey Designer Series Paper

Golden Honey Designer Series Paper

After seeing the sketch below over at Sunday Stamps, I decided to give it a try!

I started with a base of Basic Black cardstock and added a layer on top of Whisper White cardstock that was embossed using the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.  Then I cut three strips of Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (this is a FREE Sale-a-Bration gift with a $50 purchase) and punched each end using the Banner Triple Punch.  Before adhering the Whisper White panel down with Stampin’ Dimensionals ( I used a LOT), I wrapped our Solid Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the card three times and tied a bow.

The sentiment is from the stamp set, Honey Bee, and was stamped in Memento Ink.  It was cut out using a 2″ Circle Punch and then adhered to a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock that was cut using the Starburst Punch.  The cute little bee is also from the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper (FREE paper) and was cut out with the smaller bee in the Detailed Bee Dies. When you purchase the Honey Bee stamp set and the Detailed Bee Dies together, using the special bundle item number, you’ll save 10%!

To finish the card, I used a Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend to color in the stripes of the bee.

Valentine’s Day Matchbox

From My Heart

Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it so today I have a project featuring CHOCOLATE ( I can’t imagine a world without chocolate)! I created a Valentine’s Day Matchbox which is an open box with a sleeve. Slide the box out to reveal delicious chocolate inside. I’ll be back tomorrow with a video showing how quickly you can make this box! 

To create the sleeve, I used Stampin’ Up! From My Heart Designer Series Paper.  What you can’t see in the photo is that inside each heart is a foil pink accent.  So pretty!  Our heart shaped doilies are perfect for this project because who doesn’t need more hearts? In the catalog they’re shown in Flirty Flamingo and Real Red but turn them over and you have another option, white! 

I stamped the sentiment using the stamp set Heartfelt and then punched it out with one of the heart punches in the Heart Punch Pack.  You can purchase these two items separately but if you want them both, you’ll save  10% by purchasing the Heartfelt Bundle

Stampin’ Up! Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack

Itty Bitty Christmas

Today’s card features Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack and the stamp set, Itty Bitty Christmas

Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack

Feels Like Frost is beautiful paper with foil designs on one side and photographic imagery on the other. I also used our Silver Foil Sheets which pairs beautifully with this Designer Series Paper. The base of the card is Thick Whisper White cardstock but I used our regular Whisper White for the sentiment and the piece that was embossed with the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder. The sentiment was embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.

To be perfectly honest, I’m not sure if I like the added Whisper White Baker’s Twine to the top of the ornaments but I wanted to show you this alternative. If you’d like to create today’s card, you can find all the measurements below the supply list.

Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper

Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper

When I first saw Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper in the catalog, I knew I’d be ordering it but when it arrived and I opened the package . . . WOW . . . this paper is gorgeous! It’s 6″ x 6 and comes with 48 sheets with 4 each of 12 double-sided designs. It features photographic imagery on one side and a silver foil design on the other side. It really is so pretty!!

Feels Like Frost is also very versatile! I wanted my first cards using this paper to show that it can be used for more than holiday cards.  I combined today’s card with Purple Posy and Gorgeous Grape cardstock and the stamp set, Healing Hugs. For someone who loves purple (me, me!!) this card is sure to be loved. 

I wanted Highland Heather rhinestones so I took our Basic Rhinestones and colored them with a Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend. Perfectly coordinated! Our Noble Peacock Rhinestones include Gorgeous Grape but using my Stampin’ Blend gave me a lighter shade.

I also wanted the sentiment to pop on the Gorgeous Grape so I heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  It was cut out using the Pretty Label Punch. 

All of the supplies I used for today’s card can be found below. To place an order, or for more information, click any of the images below to go to the homepage of my Stampin’ Up! online store.  If you have questions about products you’re considering purchasing or ones you’ve already purchased, I’m just an email away (click the Email Me button on the sidebar of my blog).

New Hammered Metal Embossing Folder

Today’s card might look familiar.  I made a very similar card a few weeks ago but made several changes to this “updated” one. 

Here’s the first one I made.  If you want to check it out, here’s the link to that post.

Come to Gather Designer Series Paper

What are the differences between the two? First, I changed the measurements, just slightly so that less white would show between the panels (I’ve listed the measurements farther down in the post). Today’s card uses the Hammered Metal embossing folder rather than the Mosaic embossing folder.  Instead of using the Gathered Leaves Dies, I used our Leaf Punch and embossed them with the Hammered Metal folder. The sentiment was cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies and layered on a Merry Merlot oval using the Layering Ovals Dies. 

Hammered Metal Stampin Up

Both cards have a cute little bow, made with our Linen Thread. The bows were adhered using just a dot of our Multipurpose Glue. A little of that glue goes a long, long way! 

Try taking a card you’ve made before and change it up a bit!
