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!

… the only limitation is your imagination!

Hues of Happy Birthday Wishes And Ten Years For Me

June is the month of roses and butterflies coming out of their cocoons. Today is a milestone for me. I’m celebrating ten years as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. Along with having access to a community of talented creators, I’ve experienced the joy of paper crafting through sharing and comaraderie. I’m blessed to have an amazing team and I’m looking forward to the creative surprises the next ten will bring.

Leeanne Guy created this beautiful card. She’s an avid stamper, and Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. Leeanne hosted a crop at her home this past weekend and she created this beautiful card with the Hues of Happiness Suite.

I didn’t get a photo of Lee’s Pieces and Parts since I wasn’t paying attention to what she was doing. I worked on some gift boxes. So, I’ll do my best to re-invent her card.

Today’s Card Pieces And Parts

  • Cut a Pool Party cardstock card base 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and score at 4 1/4″.
  • The Fresh Freesia card layer is 5 1/4″ x 4″.
  • The Basic White top layer is 5″ x 3 3/4″. This is the card canvas!
  • The flowers are die cuts from the Happiness Abounds Designer Series paper.
  • They’re clustered to create a frame on the left and bottom of the Basic White layer.
  • Looking closely at the card, you can see how easily the flowers layer on each other.
  • If you start at the top left corner, continue down the left side and across the bottom, the beautiful cluster will form naturally.
  • The butterfly is a stamped image from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set colored using Stampin’ Blends.

So, cut a few card layers, create a cluster of beautiful flowers, add a butterfly and send heartfelt birthday wishes!

… the only limitation is your imagination!

Ringed With Nature and Love Sneak Peek

Today’s card is a Sneak Peek at the Ringed With Nature Bundle. On page 62 in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog, the Bundle includes the Ringed With Nature stamp set and Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder and Dies. The coordinating Rings of Love Designer Series Paper is in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. This paper pack is FREE with a $50 product purchase through July and August.

Today’s Card Pieces ants

  • This is the first time I’ve used a Hybrid Embossing Folder. There’s a large die in the Tree Rings set that fits into the embossing folder. It allows you to die cut and emboss images at the same time.
  • For this card, I used only the die to cut the tree bark slices directly from the coordinating Designer Series Paper.
  • I adhered a Crushed Curry layer to a Basic White card base.
  • The top layer is from the Ringed With Love Designer Series Paper Pack.
  • I fussy cut the small leaves from the DSP and die cut the Poppy Parade sprigs using a die from the Tree Rings Dies.
  • The large leaves are part of the Leaf Label and Amber Gem Combo Pack. They’re on page 49 in the upcoming Mini Catalog.
  • Finally, thinking about my sentiment and wanting it to blend into the card design, I used a piece of the Natural Finish Ribbon (in the Annual Catalog) as a sentiment anchor.
  • I inked the lower half of the ribbon with the brush tip of a Dart Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blend.
  • This was very easy to do. The alcohol ink dries quickly and I got the look I wanted.
  • The Poppy Parade stamped sentiment is from the Hello Beautiful stamp set.
  • The sentiment label is one of the Beautiful Shapes Dies.

So, if you have the new July-December 2022 Mini Catalog, take a look at the Ringed With Nature Bundle. This one’s certain to get your creativity going. Remember…

… the only limitation is your imagination!

A Gingham Cottage Suite Peek

Do you love gingham? I think “fresh” when I think “gingham”. Do you love wreaths? You can stamp and die cut at least four different wreath designs with the Cottage Wreath Bundle. And you’ll probably think of more as you’re using it. There’s no doubt this is one Bundle that will work to say “hello”, create a fresh Fall project, and give you a head start on your holiday projects.

The Gingham Cottage product Suite

  • The Cottage Wreath Bundle – The Cottage Wreath stamp set and the Country Wreaths Dies make up the Bundle.
  • The stamp set has two wreath stamps, a pretty bow stamp, a leaf sprig stamp, smaller pine boughs, Fall leaves, holly leaves, a little acorn, and holly berries.
  • There’s also a spider if you want to do a Halloween themed project.
  • The sentiments send good wishes for any occasion, including a hello, Merry Christmas and a spooky “Boo” stamp.
  • The Country Wreath Die set has four different wreath dies, a coordinating die for all the image stamps, and stand-alone leaves and a bow.
  • The Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper is all gingham. It’s double sided; one side having a smaller gingham pattern and one larger. The large gingham print is great for scrapbooking or pretty packaging.
  • The DSP pack has 48 sheets, four each of 12 color designs you can use for any occasion. The color inspiration is below.

  • Embellishments in the Gingham Cottage Suite include Pearlized Enamel Effects Basics. The colors are Red, White and Black. You can create small enamel dots with the special tip applicator. This is a fun way to embellish your wreaths, or any other project.
  • Silver Threaded Twine is also part of this Suite. It’s a wider twine wrapped with silver thread. Beautiful!

You can find pictures and more Gingham Cottage Suite details on pages 58 and 59 of the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. The Catalog goes live on Friday, July 1st.

Today’s Card Pieces and Parts

  • I showcased both the large and small gingham Designer Series Paper patterns, along with one of the stamped and die cut wreaths.
  • I Love that little bow!
  • My color palette uses the Smoky Slate Gingham Cottage Designer Series paper with So Saffron and Soft Succulent accents.
  • The card layers adhere to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and I attached the wreath to the card front with Dimensionals.

  • I stamped the wreath embellishments and die cut them with the coordinating dies.

So, I hope you enjoy this sneak peek of a favorite upcoming product suite as much as I enjoyed using the new products. Remember…
