Stampin’ Up! Avant Garden and One Big Meaning

I used Avant Garden and One Big Meaning from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share with you today.  Avant Garden is a free stamp set you can earn during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 or more order from my online store.  Sale-A-Bration is going on right now through March 31st.

I used the sketch at Paper Craft Crew #232 for my card layout.  

PCC#232

The colors were inspired by Fab Friday #106

Fab Friday #106

 

When the designers over at Fab Friday said a color challenge, that is exactly what it was for me!  I could think of things with some of the colors but not all of them at first!  They definitely pulled me out of my comfort zone.  I knew I wanted to use Avant Garden and that I needed a thank you card, so I combined Avant Garden and One Big Meaning, which is full of thank you sentiments!

Stampin' Up! Avant Garden One Big Meaning Cardiology by Jari

I started by stamping the flower images, the dotted images and the leaves onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  The art panel was then framed with a panel of Peekaboo Peach.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from One Big Meaning in Rich Razzleberry onto a panel of Very Vanilla.  I used the smallest Stitched Shapes Oval die to cut it out and then framed it with panels of Peekaboo Peach and Rich Razzleberry ovals from the Ovals Framelits Dies.

I adhered a panel from Blooms & Bliss DSP onto the Rich Razzleberry card stock base with liquid glue.  Then, I adhered a panel of Cupcakes and Carousels DSP onto a panel of Peekaboo Peach and popped it onto the base with Dimensionals.  I pulled out a Classy Designer Button, threaded it with some Linen Thread, and tied a bow around a small length of Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon. The button was attached to the art panel with several Glue Dots, then the art panel was popped on the front with Dimensionals.  To complete the front of the card, I popped the sentiment oval on with more Dimensionals.

I used a Very Vanilla panel for the inside and stamped the sentiment from One Big Meaning in Rich Razzleberry ink.  The flowers are more from Avant Garden and are stamped in Peekaboo Peach and Bermuda Bay to carry over the theme from the front.  

Card stock cuts in inches and a list of Stampin’ Up! products used to create my Avant Garden One Big Meaning Thank You card will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Special Reason Thanks

I created 3 very quick and easy thank you cards for today using the Stampin’ Up! Special Reason stamp set. I am going to go ahead and share all 3 of them even though one of them is not up to my standards!

 

Reason

 

 Normally, I do more than one layer on my cards, mostly because I really like layers.  And, if you make a mistake, it is usually easy to disguise it or cover it up!  But not on one layer Whisper White Note Cards!  Notice my Peekaboo Peach card?  I stamped the center flower upside down and to me it looks sort of sad 🙁  But since all three cards are going to diffferent people, the one who receives the Peekaboo Peach one may not realize my mistake-maybe she will like it anyway!  At least, I hope so!  

 

Reason

 

For this first card, I stamped the sentiment, from One Big Meaning, in Flirty Flamingo ink.  In order to get the words lined up correctly, I used my stamp-a-ma-jig.  I am so thankful for these things!  Next, I stamped the largest flower image from Special Reason full strength in Flirty Flamingo.  The smaller flower images were stamped first onto a scrap piece of paper, then onto the front of the card.  Last, I stamped the leaf images, also from Special Reason, in Wild Wasabi ink.

 

Reason

 

I used the same process for this card, using Sweet Sugarplum ink.  I know I have mentioned it before, but this color is really addictive, I just love it.  If you don’t have it, you need it.  And, normally I am not a pink/sugarplum lover! 

 

Reason

 

See, don’t you think this poor little flower looks droopy and sad in relation to the others? Anyway, this one was done in Peekaboo Peach ink, stamping some full strength and some images stamped off onto a scrap paper first.  

Special Reason is new and found on page 42 in the Occasions catalog.  The coordinating dies are called Stylish Stems and there are not only dies for the flowers and leaves, but 2 of the dies are for labels .  Purchase them as bundle and save 10%.

Stampin’ Up! One Big Meaning for the Happy Stampers

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner

 

Hi Stampers, it’s Thursday, and we’re so glad you joined us for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  Today I used One Big Meaning from Stampin’ Up! for our color challenge.  And, here it is:

 

12938143_10209402800015255_2048233703467693424_n

 

 

One Big Meaning

 

One Big Meaning does deliver a great Thank You sentiment to it’s destination.  You can choose from 7 different stamps, all with great fonts.  

One Big Meaning

 

This is another quick and easy card to put together!  The Polka Dot layer (from It’s My Party DSP, retiring), the Whisper White Layer and the Mint Macaron layer are all snailed together.  I wrapped a length of Burlap Ribbon (retiring) around these 3 layers and secured it with Tear and Tape adhesive, and popped that layer onto the Sahara Sand card base with dimensionals.

 

One Big Meaning

 

The sentiment is stamped in Mint Macaron ink onto a panel of Whisper White, then die cut with the Ovals Framelits Dies (retiring).  I also cut the next size larger oval from a panel of Mint Macaron Color Me Irresitible DSP (retiring) and snailed the two together before popping them on the front with dimensionals.  So that I could also get the 3rd color, Crushed Curry, on the card,  I punched 3 flowers using the Itty Bitty Accents flower punch (retiring 🙁 ) from some scraps from It’s My Party DSP and Cherry On Top DSP.  They were attached with glue dots and Pearls Basic Jewels added to the centers.

 

One Big Meaning

 

I used the part of another sentiment from One Big Meaning for the inside.  So that all of the sentiment would not be stamped, I first covered up the part I did not want with tape, inked it, REMOVED the tape, and stamped onto a Whisper White panel.  The ink is Mint Macaron.  This panel was snailed onto a little larger panel of  Mint Macaron envelope paper (retiring) before adding them both to the card base.  

Card stock cuts in inches will be at the bottom of my post.

Stampin’ Up! One Big Meaning Note Cards & Gift Box

Today’s share is a set of 5 note cards using One Big Meaning from Stampin Up! and a gift box to package them.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Whisper White note cards and envelopes.  Each pack has 20 cards and envelopes ready to decorate as you wish.  Easy peasy!

 

Stampin' Up! One Big Meaning note cards

 

The directions for my gift box can be found here.  Because I did not have the velcro dots that Amy used in her tutorial, I simply used some Whisper White 5/8″ satin ribbon to tie a bow around the box. I do love the idea of using the self-adhesive velcro dots, though!  Will have to look for some to use for my next set of cards.

Gift Card Box by Card-iology by Jari

 

The box is made from Blushing Bride card stock and I decorated the front with the small flower images from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set.

I tend to fall in love with so many of the Designer Series Papers and have a hard time using all of the pages before new designs and colors are introduced—-so I figured out a way to use up some of my stash.  Make sets of note cards and line the envelopes with matching papers!  These note cards make wonderful teacher gifts, hostess gifts, graduation gifts, or _________( you fill in the blank 🙂 )  

Love Blossoms DSP is what I chose for this gift set.  You will notice that each card features the sentiments from One Big Meaning, but two cards have some of the smaller floral images from Bloomin’ Love stamped on them.
