A Sweet Summer Slimline Birthday Card featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Ice Cream

Hi friends! Love the look of watercolor but not so great at it like me?!? This Sweet Ice Cream Stampset from Stampin’ Up! is a great option. You can make quick cards with little effort but they look like you spent lots of time watercoloring the images. 🙂 And they look so cute when complete!

I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored a at 3-1/2″ to create the card base and another piece to 3-1/4 x 8-1/4″. I used Stampin’ Up! Pool Party Ink and the sprinkle dots from the Sweet Ice Cream Stampset to create the background.

I stamped 3 popsicles and 2 ice cream cones onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Sahara Sand and Soft Suede (cone, popsicle sticks and one ice cream scoop and sprinkles) Inks, Mango Melody, Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo (popsicles). I used second generation stamping to get the different shades on the popsicles as well as for the pink ice cream scoop.

I stamped a sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream Stampset onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Gorgeous Grape and fussycut it. I also stamped the rest of my sentiment directly on the card with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. After adhereing all the images and esntiment to teh card I finished it off ny adding some Doodlebug Sprinkles Self Adhesive Enamel Dots in Bumblebee, Lilac, Swimming Pool, and Cupcake.

On the inside, I stamped the sprinkle dots from the Sweet Ice Cream Stampset with Stampin’ Up! Pool Party Ink.

Easy to Mass Produce Masculine Cards featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business

Hi friends! As promised, here a few more masculine card ideas using Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business Stamp Set. These can be easily mass produced and are great for birthdays, Father’s Day or any celebration.

For the first card, I used Stampin’ Up! Old Olive 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock cut to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make the card base and a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ cut to 4 x 5-1/4″. I stamped the curly rind from the Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business Stamp Set with Coastal Cabana Ink to create the background. Then adhered the panel to the card base.

I cut a piece of Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 7/8 x 5-1/4″ and stamped the woodgrain border from the Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business Stamp Set with Early Espresso Ink to create a border and adhered it to the card.

I stamped 3 glass images and one curly rind from Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business Stamp Set onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. A tip for mass producing this card is do everything in steps (cut all your cardstock, then all the stamping etc). I used BG000 + 0 for the glass, YR16 + YR21 + YR23 for the whiskey and YR16 + YR27 for the rind.

I stamped a sentiment from the Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business Stamp Set onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Old Olive Ink and trimmed it to 3/4 x 2-3/4″ and adhered that to a piece of Stampin’ Up! Coastal Cabana 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock, cut to 1 x 3″. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the glasses to the card.

On the inside, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4 x 5-1/4″, adhered it to the card and stamped a sentiment and glasses from Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business Stamp Set and another from Stampin’ Up!’s Well Said Stamp Set (retired) with Old Olive Ink.

Dimensions


For the second card, I followed the same steps but used Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock for the card base and stamped the curly rind with So Saffron Ink to create the background.

I used Stampin’ Up! Coastal Cabana 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock for the border and stamped the woodgrain border with Coastal Cabana Ink.

The glass images were stamped and colored the same as before. And I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business Stamp Set with Early Espresso Ink. I backed the sentiment strip with Stampin’ Up! So Saffron 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock.

On the inside, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4 x 5-1/4″, adhered it to the card and stamped a sentiment from Stampin’ Up!’s Well Said Stamp Set (retired) with Coastal Cabana Ink and glasses from Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business Stamp Set with Early Espresso Ink.

For the third card, I followed the same steps as before but used Stampin’ Up! Coastal Cabana 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock for the card base and stamped the curly rind with Early Espresso Ink to create the background.

An Old Fashioned Birthday Card featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business

Hi everyone! Need an easy masculine card or for someone who loves a good old fashioned adult beverage??? Well have I got some cards for you! This post features one pretty quick and simple card. More cards to come… stay tuned.

For this card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2” and scored at 4-1/2″ to make a card base and diecut a 3-3/4″circle from Balmy Blue 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock using the Sizzix Framelits Die Set 8/PK – Circles. Then embossed it with the Stampin’ Up! Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder (discontinued). Any woodgrain embossing folder will do here.

I distressed it with Stampin’ Up! Balmy Blue and Soft Suede Inks and adhered it to the card base. Next I stamped the decanter, two glasses and one rind images from the Stampin’ Up! Whiskey Business Cling Stamp Set with Versamark Ink and added Ranger Gold Embossing Powder.

I used Copic Markers to color the images. Be very careful with the tips of your markers as embossing powder will get stuck to it. You have to keep rubbing it off as you color so as not to ruin your nibs. I used B0000 + 0 for the glasses and decanter, YR21, YR23 and YR27 for the liquid.

I fussycut the images and adhered them to the card, adding Stampin’ Dimensionals to the one glass. Next, I stamped the sentiment onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ from the Stampin’ Up! Whiskey Business Cling Stamp Set with Soft Suede Ink and cut it to 1 x 2-7/8” and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I finished it off by adding Ranger Glossy Accents to the decanter and glasses and some Nuvo Drops in Metallic Bright Gold.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set with Stampin’ Up! Balmy Blue Ink and added a strip of Balmy Blue 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock, measuring 1 x 5-1/4” which I embossed with the Stampin’ Up! Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder (discontinued) and distressed with Balmy Blue and Soft Suede Inks.

Stretching Your Background Dies featuring Honey Bee Stamps Dies

Hello crafty people. I decided to challenge myself to see how many different ways I can use one background die. I chose the Honey Bee Stamps Plaid A7 Base Cover Plate and Plaid A7 Cover Top Plate which I bought during the holidays but only got to use once. I used it as it was intended for one card, a focal image and an embellishment.

For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 7 x 10″ and scored at 5″ to create the card base. I also diecut the Honey Bee Stamps Plaid A7 Base Cover Plate and Plaid A7 Cover Top Plate and adhered them to the card base.

I stamped the butterflies, sentiment and trails from the Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Day stampset (Unfortunately no longer available but any butterfly stamps will do). I colored the images with Copic Markers. I used R17 + R27, R81 + R83, YR09 + YR16, Y13 + Y18, YG17 + YG45, BG000 + B01, V06 + V09, and B24 + B26.

I don’t have the dies for this stampset so I fussycut the images and sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the card using Tombow Mono Multi Glue and the butterflies with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I finished it off by adding Nuvo Drops in Ivory Seashell. I left the inside blank. It was a super easy card to create. The only slightly time consuming thing was coloring the images but that didn’t take that long either. I love how the rainbow butterflies look against the white background!

Dimensions


For the second card, I started by again cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 7 x 10″ and scored at 5″ to create the card base. I cut a piece of pattern paper from Doodlebug Designs 12 x 12 Milk and Cookies Paper (unavailable) and adhered it to the card base.

I diecut two 2-1/4″ circles from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock and one from Vellum. I ran the two white circles through my diecut machine with the Honey Bee Stamps Plaid A7 Base Cover Plate and Plaid A7 Cover Top Plate and adhered all three circles together.

I used Stampin’ Up!’s Coffee Cafe Stamp & Die Bundle (retired) and Stampin’ Up!’s Fruit Basket stampset (retired) and Itty BItty Fruit Punch Pack (retired). I diecut the cup, the cupcake wrapper, two whipped creams and label from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock, the lid from Vellum and the straw from pattern paper (Echo Park Spring Dots andSTRIPES 6 x 6 Paper Pad-discontinued).

I inked the cup with Tim Holtz SPUN SUGAR and PICKED RASPBERRY Distress Ink and the cupcake wrapper with GROUND ESPRESSO Distress Ink and I added some colore around the edges of the cupckae label with Catherine Pooler Lime Rickey Ink. I added shading to whipped cream with Copic Marker C1 + 0 and R81 and 0 and some sprinkles with the Ground Espresso Distress Marker.

I stamped the ince cubes from the Stampin’ Up! Coffee Cafe Stampset with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock, colored with R81, BG000 + 0 Copic Markers and cut with the coodinating dies. I stamped the strawberries from Stampin’ Up!’s Fruit Basket stampset (retired) with Catherine Pooler Lime Rickey Ink and Catherine Pooler Samba Ink onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock and Itty BItty Fruit Punch Pack (retired) to punch them out.

I stamped the sentiment from Honey Bee Shake-It-Off Stamp Set (unavailable) onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Catherine Pooler Lime Rickey Ink and fussycut it out.

I finished it off by adding Ranger GLOSSY ACCENTS Glue Dimensional Adhesive to the ice cubes. I left the inside blank.

Dimensions


For the third card, I used the Honey Bee Stamps Donut Card Die (retired) with Catherine Pooler Sand Dunes 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock (unavailable) to create the card base. I used Lawn Fawn Guava 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock to diecut the icing and then diecut a another donut piece with Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ then used the Honey Bee Stamps Plaid A7 Base Cover to turn that donut shape into the donut glaze. I inked the edges of all the donut pieces using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink and adhered them.

I diecut the sentiment from Stampin’ Up!’s Early Espresso 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock using Honey Bee Stamps Donut Worry Dies (recently retired). You can also use the Donut Worry 4×4 Stamp Set (retiring soon). I diecut the sentiment shadow from Catherine Pooler Sand Dunes 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock (unavailable) added Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink and adhered them to the card.

On the inside of the card, I diecut another sentiment using the Honey Bee Stamps Donut Worry Dies (recently retired) from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and adhered it to the card.

Creating Feminine and Masculine Watercolor Cards Using One Stampset

Hi friends. I’m back with some more cute cards using the Honey Bee Stamps Big Pickup Cab Stampset. Do you have stampsets that you think won’t work for both feminine and masculine cards?!? Try changing the color. It worked great for these birthday cards.

I started by stamping the truck image from Honey Bee Stamps Big Pickup Cab Stampset with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight Ink onto Canson XL Series Watercolor Pad. Then added Clear Embossing Powder over it and heat set it. Next I used Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Distress Ink and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink for the truck, Mustard Seed Distress Ink for the headlights, Pumice Stone and Black Soot Distress Inks for the tires and metal items, and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for the windshield.

Once dry, I stamped the sentiment on the hood with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight Ink and diecut the truck with the coordinating dies. I also cut another truck from the Canson XL Series Watercolor Pad for the back of the car as well as a strip measuring 1″ wide x 3/4″ long and scored it at 1/2″. I adhered the strip to the back and front panels of the card to create the card base.


For the second card, I followed the same procedure except I used Catherine Pooler Designs Suede Shoes and Eucalyptus Inks for the truck, Catherine Pooler Designs Chiffon Ink for the headlights, Stampin’ Up! Smoky Slate and Catherine Pooler Designs Black Jack Ink for the tires and metal items, and Catherine Pooler Designs Hot Tub Ink for the windshield.

And that completes these cards. They are pretty easy to make. The watercoloring is a little time consuming but I find it cathartic. If it’s not your thing, use your favorite coloring tools instead.

I left the inside of the cards blank.

Using the Same Word Die Two Ways – Birthday Cards

Hi everyone! I made some fruity birthday cards using the positive and negative created using the Happy Birthday To You Die from My Favorite Things (discontinued). This is a great way to make multiple cards with minimal supplies and not waste anything. This paper I uses can be found on page 14 of the new Sale-A-Bration Catalog.

For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 10″ and scored at 5-1/2″ to make a card base and a piece of Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP to 4-1/4″ x 4-3/4″. I also cut the front of the card to 4-3/4″ long.

I diecut the sentiment from the Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP using Happy Birthday To You Die from My Favorite Things (discontinued) and adhered a piece of Blackberry Bliss 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock to the back of it and adhered both to card base with Tombow Mono Multipurpose Glue. I saved the positive letters that were diecut with the die to use on my next card.

To add a pop of color behind the front panel and to the inside, I cut a piece of Garden Green 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock and adhered it on the right side of the card inside. Next, I fussycut images from the Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP and adhere them to the front of the card, popping up two of them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I finished it by adding some Love From Lizi White Pin Stripe Peel-offs.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Well Said Stamp Set with Poppy Parade Ink and a fussycut a strawberry from the Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP.

Tip: To easily aand perfectly dhere the sentiment, cut a scrap piece of the sentiment and tape it down to the card suing low-tack tape. Then adhere your letters in the negative space. You won’t need to try to space out or align the letters.

Next, I fussycut some fruit and leaf images from the Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP and adhered them to the card. I finished it off by adding some Pearl Basic Jewels.

Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings Stampset and Berry Delightful DSP

Happy New Year everyone! New year, time for some new posts! I want to start the year by introducing you to this cute watercolor berry stampset (Berry Blessings Stampset) and paper featured on page 14 of the new Sale-A-Bration Catalog. Yes, it is time for Sale-A-Bration people!!! It’s time to get free items with your purchases and who doesn’t like free goodies?!? I get very excited about gift-with-purchase promotions. 🙂

This stampset looks like you spent hours watercoloring images without the hassle; I love watercoloring but it can be time consuming and I’m not great at it. It also coordinates with the Sweet Strawberry Stampset and Strawberry Builder Punch found on page 44 in the new January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.

I kept these simple, letting the stamps and paper to do the hard work for me. For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base and a panel to 4 x 5-1/4″. Then diecut a circle with a 2-5/8 circle die from the Stampin’ Up! Circle Layering Dies.

I diecut a 2-7/8 circle from a piece of Strathmore 300 Series Bristol Smooth Paper and used Stampin’ Up! Balmy Blue Ink and a large watercolor brush to create a watercolor background on the circle piece. Then added splashes using a small watercolor brush and Stampin’ Up! Balmy Blue Ink and Granny Apple Green Ink to the watercolor circle as well as the top panel. Once dry, I adhered the circle to the back of the top panel in the window and the top panel to the card base with Tombow Mono Multipurpose Glue.

Next, I stamped and fussycut fruit and leaf images from the Berry Blessings Stampset and also fussycut some strawberries from the Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP. I used Granny Apple Green Ink, Pacific Point Ink, and Rich Razzleberry Ink.

Before adhering the fruit images, I stamped a sentiment from Berry Blessings Stampset with Poppy Parade Classic Ink onto the card then adhered the fruit images, popping some up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Lastly I added some black lines around the circle using a circle die and a Black 0.03 Sakura Pigma Micron Pen.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Well Said Stamp Set with Pacific Point Ink and some berries from the Berry Blessings Stampset with Granny Apple Green Ink, and Rich Razzleberry Ink.

Dimensions


For the second card, I made an stepped up version. I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base and a panel of Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP to 4 x 5-1/4″ and a piece of Vellum to 3-5/8″ x 4-1/2″ and adhered them to the card base.

Then diecut a 2-7/8 circle from Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock and 2-5/8 circle from Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP with dies from the Stampin’ Up! Circle Layering Dies and adhered them to the card.

Next, I stamped fruit and leaf images from the Berry Blessings Stampset with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold Emboss Powder. I watercolored the images using Granny Apple Green Ink, Garden Green Ink, Pacific Point Ink, Poppy Parade Ink and Rich Razzleberry Ink. I fussycut them all out and adhered them to the card, popping some up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from Berry Blessings Stampset with Rich Razzleberry Ink, fussycut it out, and adhered it to the card. To finish it off, I added some Metallic Bright Gold Nuvo Drops and Gold Twine.

Creating a Coffee Themed Birthday Gatefold Card featuring Honey Bee Stamps

Honey Bee Stamp’s new release includes this many coffee themed items so of course I was all in! I’ve seen many people stack the images from the Treat Yo Self 6×6 Stamp Set to create their cards so I thought how fun would it be to make a gatefold card with stacked coffee treats. What I really love about this stampset is how large the images are. And of course, Honey Bee Stamps also release sentiment stamps and dies to go with this coffee collection. What could be better I ask?!?! I won’t be using those on this card but stay tuned because there will be more cards coming using this collection.

I started by cutting a piece of Montval Acid-Free Cold Press Watercolor Paper to 5-1/2 x 11-1/2″ and scored at 4″ and 8-1/2″ on the long side. I used watercolor paper instead of my traditional Neenah 110lb because distress inks blend beautifully on it. More on that later…

I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso to ink up the left flap on the card, creating an ombre effect. Then I stamped all the coffee beans from the Treat Yo Self 6×6 Stamp Set with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide Ink. Then I cut a piece of Stampin’ Up!’s Irresistibly Yours DSP (discontinued) to 3 x 5-1/2″ and used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Broken China and Vintage Photo to create another ombre, revealing the embossed areas on these papers and adhered it to the card. Stampin’ up needs to bring these papers back because they are great for easy backgrounds and you can color them with anything you want.

I stamped four images from the Treat Yo Self 6×6 Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″. I colored them with COPICS markers. I used R32 + R37, G07 + G09, C1 + 0, BG000 + 0 and E37 + E27 for the first cup; BG000 + BG01, G07 + G09, and C1 + 0 for the second cup; R32 + R37, E37 + E29, C1 + 0 and BG01 for the third cup; and E23 + E37, R30, R32 + R37, E23 + E29 and C1 + 0 for the pie. I diecut them using the Treat Yo Self coordinating dies.

I adhered the three coffee cups to the card and trimmed off the excess of the card flap. I stamped a sentiment from the Treat Yo Self 6×6 Stamp Set with Tim Holtz’s Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink and cut it with the coordinating die. I added it to the card with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. I finished it by adding Love from Lizi Pin Stripe Peel-Off Stickers in Brown Mirror to the right panel and some Fresh Brewed Sequin Mix to the front of the card.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from Lawn Fawn Village Shops and coffee beans from Treat Yo Self 6×6 Stamp Set with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide Ink and added the pie image. And that completes this card.

Lots to Celebrate by Stampin’ Up! (from the new Aug-Dec Mini Catalog)

I love mason jars and mason jar stamps so it only made sense to buy this one. :). It’s really cute and has stamps for different occasions. It aso coordinates with the Jar of Flowers stampset. But wait there’s more…there’s a coordinating punch. No need to fussy cut it when there’s a punch! You also save 10% when you purchase the Jar of Flowers Bundle.

I stamped the background by using the leaf stamps from the Beautiful Autumn stampset and Crumb Cake Ink and adhered it to the card base. I also adhered the pattern paper strip to the card.

I stamped the mason jar from the Lots to Celebrate Stampset onto Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the trail inside the jar with Crumb Cake Ink and the leaves with Cajun Craze Ink, Mint Macaron Ink, Soft Suede Ink and Cherry Cobbler Ink. I stamped the lid with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold Emboss Powder and the doily with Soft Suede Ink. I used the Jar Punch to cut out the Mason Jar and fussycut the lid and doily and adhered them together. I added some Linen Thread and Acorn Trinket (from the Guilded Autumn Suite).

I punched a 2-1/4″ circle from Mint Macaron 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock and a 2’1/2″ circle from Gold Foil and adhered them together. I stamped a sentiment from the Lots to Celebrate Stampset with Soft Suede Ink onto Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock and cut it down to 3/4 x 1-1/2″. I adhered the circles, mason jar and sentiment to the card.

On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 4 x 5-1/4″and a strip of Guilded Autumn Specialty Paper Pack to 5/8 x 4-1/4″ and adhered them to the card. Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from the Lots to Celebrate Stampset with Mint Macaron Ink.

I started card by cutting a piece of Night Of Navy 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of Plaid Tidings 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to 2 x 5-1/4″. I stamped the background by using the the snowflakes from the Lots to Celebrate Stampset and Night Of Navy Ink. I adhered the pattern paper strip to the card.

I stamped the mason jar from the Lots to Celebrate Stampset onto Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the trail inside the jar with Smoky Slate Ink and the snowflakes with Misty Moonlight Ink and Rich Razzleberry Ink. I stamped the lid with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Silver Emboss Powder and the doily with Cherry Cobbler Ink. I used the Jar Punch to cut out the Mason Jar and fussycut the lid and doily and adhered them together. I added some white embroidery floss from my stash to the jar as well.

I punched a 2-1/4″ circle from Misty Moonlight 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock and a 2’1/2″ circle from Silver Foil and adhered them together. I stamped a sentiment from the Lots to Celebrate Stampset with Rich Razzleberry Ink onto Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock and cut it down to 7/8 x 1-5/8. I adhered the circles, mason jar and sentiment to the card.

On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 4 x 5-1/4″and a strip of Plaid Tidings 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to 5/8 x 4-1/4″ and adhered them to the card.

2 Cards Featuring Stitched Triangles by Stampin’ Up!

I love stackable geometric dies, especially with stitched details. They are so versatile because you can create a whole card using only the shapes, or add a shape behind a sentiment or focal point to emphasize it. For this card I decided to keep it simple and bright. I combined a rainbow of Stampin’ Up!’s cardstocks, Stitched Triangles Dies and a simple sentiment. It is a very simple card to make and can easily be mass produced. This die set is available in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog! There is also a coordinating stamp set.

I started by cutting down a piece of Stampin’ Up! Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base. Then I cut several triangles using the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Dies and Stampin’ Up!’s 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock in Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, and Highland Heather.

I stacked sets of six triangles in rainbow order and adhered them together with Tombow Mono Multi Glue. And then adhered those to the card base, trimming the excess. I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set included in the Stampin’ Up!’s February 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Lovely Day onto the card base with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I left the inside of the card blank and that completes this card. Super easy, right??

For the second card, I decided to create watercolor triangles. I used the ink refills to watercolor. I started by cutting down a piece of Stampin’ Up! Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base. Then I cut down six panels of Stampin’ Up! Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and used ink refills for Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, and Highland Heather and a water brush to add color to each panel.

Then I cut several triangles from each panel using the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Dies. I laid all my triangles out on the card base and puzzle pieced them together basically. Once I was happy with the placement, I adhered them down with Tombow Mono Multi Glue.

I stamped a sentiment onto a scrap piece of Stampin’ Up! Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and the alphabets in the Stampin’ Up! Make A Difference Photopolymer Stamp Set. On the inside I added a few extra triangles in the bottom right corner.
