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 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.

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!

Good Vibes With Best Butterflies

Hi! I’m sending good vibes to you today!

I had so much fun creating this card. I literally built a butterfly with the Best Butterflies Bundle. It’s in the Annual Catalog on pages 36 and 37. The bold, bright, happy mix of colors caught my eye. I dohave another butterfly stamp and die set, but it’s very different from this one. This bundle has a more whimsical look.

After I stamped and attached the “sending good vibes” sentiment, I realized this design could work beautifully with a bold “Happy Birthday” sentiment/ That would be a fun birthday card.

Let’s talk about this card!

Card Pieces & Parts

  • The card base is an A-2 tent fold cut from Parakeet Party cardstock.
  • I cut the patterned paper layers from the Butterfly Kisses Designer Series Paper pack.
  • A scalloped die from the Scalloped Contour Dies gave me the scalloped edge border.
  • The Starry Sky die cut edge and the stamped butterfly are from the Build-A-Butterfly dies.
  • The butterfly, stamped with Starry Sky, Parakeet Party and Crushed Cutty ink, are stamps in the Best Butterflies stamp set.
  • “sending good vibes” is stamped with Crushed Curry ink.
