A Christmas Scottie Is Always Loved

Today, I’m showcasing the Christmas Scottie Bundle, which includes the Christmas Scottie stamp set and the Scottie Dog punch. Along with the Bundle, my inspiration for today’s card is from a card in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure that featured the Ringed With Love Designer Series Paper. The DSP pack is FREE with a $50 product purchase.

Poppy Parade and Ming Macaton is a fun color combination. Paired with the Kraft cardstock and Crumb Cake, I think it’s super cute!

Today’s Card Pieces And Parts

  • I cut the Mint Macaron card base 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.
  • I cut a piece of Kraft cardstock 3 3/4″ x 5″. We can replace this with a Crumb Cake layer. I thought the Kraft layer would add a little interest.
  • The Poppy Parade layer is 4 3/4″ x 3 1/4″.
  • The patterned paper layer is 3″ x 4 1/2″.
  • Stamp the images as shown above with Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake and Poppy Parade ink onto a Basic White cardstock scrap.
  • Fussy cut the Scottie dog, and the small ribbon bow.
  • Punch the large ribbon bow using the Scottie Dog Punch.
  • I stamped the ribbon image onto the white cardstock so you can see it. I stamped this image directly to my card top layer once I had my layers and elements in place. It’s a photopolymer stamp that is bendable. You’ll notice, I adjusted it a bit before I inked it.
  • Attach the cut layers to the card base.
  • Add the card elements as shown.
  • I attached the plaid blanket image first with liquid glue, then attached the dot with Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment layer measures 3/4″ x 2 1/4″. It’s slipped under the dog paws and attached with glue.
  • I stamped the ribbon last with Poppy Parade ink.
  • I had some Poppy Parade Resin Dots in my embellishment stash. I thought they worked well for a little embellishment.
  • The inside of the card is a Basic White card layer. The patterned paper strip is 1/2″ x 5 1/4″.
  • I attached the punched bow to the bottom corner.

So, stamp an adorable Scottie Dog, add some punched and stamped ribbon, a cute plaid blanket and create something lovable!

A Cheerful Basket Full of Love

I just received the Cheerful Basket Bundle, and it is adorable. The Cheerful Basket stamp set has 9 stamps, including two mixed font sentiments. As the “Cheerful Basket” title suggests, there’s one large basket you can fill with hearts, apples or craft supplies… all “cheerful”! There’s an adorable kitten that is perfect sitting next to the basket. The Full Basket coordinating dies make it easy to fill your basket with pine tree boughs and leaves. This is an “all season” Bundle you’ll definitely enjoy.

I thought the Book Binding Fun Fold design would make a perfect canvas for the basket. Once you complete the “book binding” part on the left of the card front, the card front becomes a 4″ square. This is a good size for the die cut basket. I had loads of fun with this fun fold and the Cheerful Basket Bundle. I added cutting dimensions and quick instructions below.

Today’s Card Pieces And Parts

  • The Starry Sky card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 4 1/4″ and 5 1/2″.
  • Fold the card base in half at the 5 1/2″ score line.
  • The front of the card has the second score line. With the card base in front of you, fold the flap to the left.
  • Add Multipurpose Glue to the inside of the 1 1/4″ section to create the “book binding” on the left side.
  • The front card base flap that opens will be a 4 1.4″ square.
  • Cut three Basic White layers: Two 4″ squares, and one 1″ x 4″ layer. One Basic White square is for the inside and the remaining two are for the card front.
  • The Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper card front large layer is a 3 7/8″ square.
  • The Designer Series Paper card front small layer is 3 7/8″ x 7/8″.
  • Adhere the layers to the card front as shown.
  • I stamped the basket with Sahara Sand ink, and the hearts and sentiment with Sweet Sorbet ink.
  • The stamped hearts and basket, along with the other card front elements, are all die cuts using the coordinating Full Basket Dies.
  • They’re attached to the card front with Dimensionals.
  • I used the 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine in Sweet Sorbet to add a little something to the card seam.
  • It’s wrapped around the card three times and tied in a bow in the front.

So, get yourself the Cheerful Basket Bundle, add some fun patterned paper, die cut some seasonal elements, and create something cheerful!

The Greatest Abigail Rose

I know the flowers are baby cottage roses in today’s card, but the “floating” flowers remind me of a lotus. The Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper has such pretty subtle patterns, I thought I would mix in a little Basic Black. I like the outcome. The Basic Black mat layer gives this design a bit of pizzazz! A Petal Pink or Smoky Slate layer would to the same.

I am, by no stretch of the imagination, an expert with Stampin’ Blends. Today, they worked well for me. Not wanting to sponge or use a Blending Brush to color the flowers, the Blends gave me more defined color. I am happy with the outcome.

This truly is a quick and easy card. The layer dimensions and a brief “how to” are below.

Today’s Card Bits &Pieces

  • The Very Vanilla card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″.
  • I cut the Basic Black layer 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • The Smoky Slate leaf pattern paper layer is 3 3/4″ x 5″.
  • I cut the Petal Pink striped layer 3 1/2″ wide x 3 1/4″. long. With the striped pattern facing you, start at the top left corner and gently tear the paper toward you on the diagonal to the right edge.
  • Years ago, before we had detailed layering dies, we tore paper often to give our projects visual interest.
  • To make this layer look a little more “vintage”, you can lightly sponge a little ink over the torn edge. I chose not to for today’s card.
  • I used the large die cut from the Cottage Dies and the coordinating Designer Series Paper pattern to cut the flower images.
  • Light Calypso Coral and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends gave me the color for the flowers and I used a Light Just Jade Bland for the leaves.
  • Overall, it took very little time to “prep” my card pieces.
  • I adhered all the layers with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and attached them all with glue.
  •  I love how the Champagne Rhinestones look with this suite, so I added a little sparkle to the sentiment.

So, pull out the products from your Abigail Rose Suite, die cut a few flowers, add some color and create something with a little pizazz!

Wonderful Deckled Edge And Hues of Happiness

Hope you all had a happy holiday weekend and spend some time in your craft space. We had a clambake at my sister’s over the weekend. The sea food was amazing. I also organized in my craft room. That was fun, too!!

I put this card together yesterday and wanted to share it with you. The Happiness Abounds Bundle and the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper make it so easy to create pretty cards and projects. The Happiness Abounds Suite was made for the Deckled Rectangles Dies. I haven’t inked up the edges of my Deckled Rectangles die cuts. That detail may happen soon!

Today’s Card Bits & Pieces

  • I went with a Basic Black card base today. I thought Basic White and Petal Pink would be a striking contrast with black.
  • My card base is an A-2 cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.
  • I die cut three layers using the Deckled Rectangles. One in Petal Pink, and two Basic White.
  • I used one Basic White for my card front and one is on the card’s inside.
  • The Basic White layer is die cut and embossed with the large pop up die (if you look closely at the die cut layer, you’ll see tiny embossed/cut petals you can pop up to create dimension with the die) from the Blooming Happiness Dies.
  • You can see, I offset the rectangle layers, making sure my layer corners are about the same distance from the edges of the card on all sides. This helps me know I center my layers even though they’re offset.
  • The flowers are die cuts from the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper and attached with Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment, stamped with Melon Mambo ink and attached to a die cut label, is also attached with Dimensionals.
  • The die cut label for the sentiment is from the All That Dies.
  • The All That Dies include versatile label dies. If you haven’t seen them, they’re worth a look.
  • I embellished with a few 2022 – 2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots.

So, find a beautiful flower cluster, attach it to an embossed Deckled Rectangle, add a few Matte Dots and create something “wonderful in every way”!

Lovely You Butterfly Brilliance

Today, I’m showcasing the Brilliant Wings Dies. And they’re not going away! They are a beautiful set of classic butterfly dies.

It’s been a while since I created a “tag” card. I used the largest tag in the Tailor Made Tags Dies.  These are also staying with us. It’s a versatile set of tag dies that can be used as a card or sentiment layer.

 

Today’s Card Bits And Pieces

  • The standard A-2 Highland Heather card base is cut 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″.
  • I added a Basic White card layer that measures 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.
  • The Highland Heather patterned paper layer is 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • It’s a pattern from the Flowering Fields DSP pack.
  • The Brilliant Wings Die set has a die that resembles ink splatter. I love the texture it creates.
  • I used the ink splatter die to die cut texture into the patterned paper layer.
  • The Basic White tag is adhered with Dimensionals and stamped with an image from the Lovely You stamp set.
  • I scattered three die cut butterflies and a few 2021-2023 In Color Jewels to finish this card.

So, cut a Highland Heather card base, die cut some ink splatter, add a few gorgeous jewels and create something lovely!
