Stampin’ Up! Wreath Builder Dies

Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it but really, today’s card could be given to anyone at any time of the year. 

 

 

I started with a base of Petal Pink cardstock and added a layer of Basic White that I first embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

Using the Wreath Builder Dies, I cut a wreath out of Petal Pink cardstock and another one using Garden Green cardstock. I cut Mini Stampin’ Dimensional in half and placed them on the back of the green wreath before placing it on the card front. I rolled glue dots between my fingers (high tech here) and placed them in strategic spots on the Petal Pink wreath before adhering it to the other wreath. Another alternative is to add dots of Multipurpose Glue to the wreath instead of glue dots.

 

 

I also used the Wreath Builder Dies to cut out the Basic White heart and used more glue dots to adhere it to the wreath. 

The sentiment was stamped in Garden Green ink onto Basic White cardstock using the Quite Curvy stamp set and layered onto a piece of Petal Pink cardstock.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back before adhering it to the card front. To complete the card, I added three Elegant Faceted Gems to the front. If you’d like to make today’s card, you can find all the measurements I used below the Supply List.

Please note:  My card today was created using Whisper White cardstock but the mill that made it for Stampin’ Up! had to close down and Whisper White is no longer available.  Basic White is its replacement and is now available.  To add less confusion, I’ve referred to Basic White throughout my post.

Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Bundle

Today’s card features Playful Pets Designer Series Paper (it’s on sale!) and the Pampered Pets Bundle. I initially passed on this paper but when it went on sale, I grabbed several packages. It’s so cute! I don’t know why I waited so long to get it! 

 

Pampered Pets Bundle

 

Playful Pets Designer Series Paper

 

I started with a base of Real Red cardstock and then added a layer of Playful Pets Designer Series Paper (you can find all the measurements I used below the Supply List). Whisper White cardstock (it was cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies) was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder using the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and then layered onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock. This layer is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

 

 

The cute dog was cut out of the Designer Series Paper using the Pets Dies. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Ink onto Whisper White cardstock using the stamp set Pampered Pets. The Pampered Pets Bundle includes both the Pampered Pets stamp set and the Pets Dies and will save you 10% rather than buying each individually.

Pets Dies

 

The sentiment was cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies and is layered onto a piece of Real Red cardstock that was cut out with the Layering Ovals Dies. Both the dog and the sentiment were adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Artistry Blooms

Today’s card features Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper, one of fifteen packages of paper on sale this month! You can see all the paper on sale HERE

Artistry Blooms Stampin Up

 

I started with a base of Granny Apple Green cardstock and then added another layer of this pretty green paper but embossed it first with the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder using the Cut & Emboss Machine. For this particular card, I found that when using the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder, you need to be very careful that you’re placing your cardstock in the embossing folder straight. I had to add a few sheets to the recycle bin because I wasn’t paying attention that the paper was straight and when I glued it to the base, the whole card looked crooked.  I’ve used this embossing folder many times before and have never had this problem but it was obvious with this card. 

 

Artistry Blooms Stampin' Up!

 

The Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper was cut out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back before adding it to the front of my card. The sentiment was stamped in Garden Green ink using the stamp set, Butterfly Gala, and then cut out with the Tasteful Labels Dies. I added some Gilded Gems to complete the card (these are very sparkly in person).

Here’s another version of the card using the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder. You can find all the measurements I used below the Supply List.

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Bundle

Today’s card features the Snowflake Wishes Bundle which includes the stamp set Snowflake Wishes and So Many Snowflakes Dies

 

So Many Snowflakes

 

Snowflake Wishes Bundle

 

I used one of my favorites, the beautiful Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper on my card. This double-sided paper features foil designs on one side and photographic images on the other.  It debuted last year in the Holiday Catalog and was brought back.  I couldn’t be happier!

 

Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper

 

Feels Like Frost pairs beautifully with our Silver Foil paper. I used it to layer the Designer Series Paper as well as the embossed Whisper White cardstock (I used the Winter Snow Embossing Folder).  The snowflake was also cut out with Silver Foil but before running it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, I cut the foil to the size I wanted and then adhered it to one of our Foam Adhesive Sheets that I cut down to the same size.

 

Foam Adhesive Sheets Stampin Up

 

So Many Snowflake Dies

 

I used the stamp set Snowflake Wishes for the sentiment and stamped it with Versamark ink (it’s a very sticky ink). Then I sprinkled Silver Embossing Powder over it and heated it with my Heat Tool. Heat Embossing is so easy and it always adds elegance to a card!

More Magic In This Night Boxes

Several days ago I shared a box I made for a pack of gum and today I have three more boxes. Two of the boxes are decorated with Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper and the other one with one of our 3D Embossing Folders. If you’d like to watch the video showing how to make the box from last week, click here. To see the post for the Halloween box from last week along with the measurements I used, click here

 

Cobwebs Embossing Folder

 

Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper

 

Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper

 

All three boxes were tied up with the GORGEOUS 1-1/2″ Metallic Mesh Ribbon in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. It’s part of the Magic In This Night Suite (Halloween products) but I think it can be used for any occasion!  It’s very fancy looking!

 

Metallic Mesh Ribbon

 

The first box was made using Basic Black cardstock and to decorate it, I used the Cobwebs 3D Embossing Folder with Gorgeous Grape cardstock.  The spider was cut out using our Black Glitter Paper and the Little Treat Box Dies. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Ink using the stamp set, Banner Year, and was cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies (I also used this stamp set and dies for the second box).

 

Cobwebs 3D Embossing Folder Stampin Up

 

I used Basic Black cardstock to make the second box and Pretty Peacock cardstock for the third one. Both have a piece of Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper on the top.

These boxes are really easy to make and while I made them to fit a pack of gum, any small treat would fit inside!
