A quick post as Internet is sketchy now with Hurricane Ian’s post activities! We were spared damage but it we were in the path. Praise the Lord and continued prayers for our southern neighbors and those who continue to feel the effects of the Hurricane. I was at a Crafting Retreat in Kissimee when the Hurricane was on its way so we high tailed it home on Tuesday evening but not before we made a few cards on the first day of our cut short 3 day trip! This card my friend Janet Munden prepped for us!
I was happy to use the Stampin’ UP! Give it a Whirl Dies with the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set. I forgot how cut it was as I had not used it for a time. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT! You just turn the mechanism, and you get to see coffee and then cookies!
And, of course, the inside is fun, too!
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
Here is a video I did using the Stampin’ UP! Give it a Whirl Dies…
Here is a fun gift card holder card I learned from my friend Linda Heller.
A simple folding of the DSP to make a pocket…I used the Mini Pocket Envelope Dies. They are so cute!!! Take a look at my video:
The card below uses the stamped images to make the geranium and DSP to make the gift card holder. I also used the Decked Rectangles Dies for the panels on the front and on the inside.
The next card uses the die cuts to make the geranium and cardstock to make the gift card holder. On my card at the top, you can see how I added an additional set of leaves on the geranium. I also just cut my rectangles for the panels and the inside.
I really like the red ribbon on this card. It really stands out, don’t you think? I love the Stampin’ UP! Lovely in Linen Designer Series Paper on this card- a nice mix of Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen.
Measurements: Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on the 8-1/2″ side, Evening Evergreen border panel: 3″ x 4-1/4″, Soft Succulent or Basic White Panel: 2-3/4″ x 4″ , DSP: 4″ x 5-1/4″ folded into the left side as seen in video, Basic White outside and inside: 4″ x 5-1/4″
I played with my Stampin’ UP! Heavenly Hollyhocks Bundle, and here is my first run card with it…
The dies are super cool layering dies that do a fantastic job getting a card done! I stamped the black floral images on the white panel and then layered a Polished Pink die cut and a white die cut on top of that.
Here is the card that needed the subtle pattern on it from the Stampin’ UP! Awash with Beauty Designer Series Paper on Monday’s card? I used the floral side for Monday’s card
Love the big sentiment from the Stampin’ UP! Charming Sentiments.
Check out my video to see how to make it!
Measurements: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 2-3/4″ and 8-1/4″ on the 11″ side, (2) 2-7/8″ colored squares, For belly band 3/4″ x 11″ strip and 1-1/2″ colored square, Basic White inside: 4″ x 5-1/4″ and (1) 2-5/8″ for sentiment, DSP: (1) 2-5/8″ square and (2) 2-1/2″ x 4″ on gatefold
Sometimes, you can just let the Designer Series Paper and the Dies do all the work for you!
I was rifling through the gorgeous Stampin’ UP! Awash in Beauty Designer Series Paper looking for a muted pattern which ended up on the back side of this stunning pattern! I cut it in such a way to preserve the floral pattern while using the subtle pattern I needed- meaning I cut what I needed out the middle of it.
I almost forgot how awesome the Stampin’ UP! Amazing Thanks Dies were!
