Stampin’ Up! Paisleys & Posies Grateful

I used the Stampin’ Up! Paisleys & Posies stamp set and Paisley Framelits dies to create my Grateful card for today. This is the perfect time of year to stop and consider all of the people in our lives we are grateful for!  And this card will go to one of those people…..

The stamp set for my card was inspired by What Will You Stamp? #90

 

WWYS#90

 

The colors for my card were inspired by Fab Friday #100

And, the card design by TGIFc81

My card started with a Mint Macaron card stock base.  I adhered a panel of Petals & Paisleys Specialty DSP to a panel of Copper Foil.  The banner was stamped in Versa Mark ink and sprinkled with Copper Embossing Powder, then heat embossed.  I also stamped three of the images from Paisleys & Posies in Versa Mark ink, sprinkled them with more Copper Embossing Powder and heat embossed them.  Next, I die cut them with the matching dies and colored them in with my Stampin’ Write Markers.  The ribbon is from the 3/8″ Ribbon Trio pack and adhered with Tear & Tape adhesive.

For the inside sentiment, I chose a stamp from the Acorny Thank You stamp set and also used Versa Mark and Copper Embossing Powder.  More Copper Foil and Petals & Paisleys DSP were added to the bottom of the panel and another colored image from Petals & Paisleys glued beside the Grateful for You sentiment. 

Card stock cuts in inches and Stampin’ Up! products used will be at the end of the post.

Paisley Birthday for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 

Hi Stampers, it’s a sketch challenge this week, and I have created a Paisley Birthday card using Paisleys & Posies from Stampin’ Up! 

 

Here is our sketch challenge :

Paisley Birthday sketch

 

Stampin’ Up! Paisley Birthday from Paisleys & Posies stamp set:

 

Paisley Birthday

 

As beautiful as this Petals & Paisleys Spectialty DSP is, it is difficult to photograph!  (At least for me)  The copper and navy really make a statement together, don’t they?  

 

Paisley Birthday

 

The Petals & Paisleys DSP was adhered to a panel of Copper Foil with glue, then popped onto the Night of Navy card stock base with dimensionals.  Using some Versa Mark ink, I stamped two of the paisley images from Paisleys & Posies onto a scrap of Night of Navy card stock.  Then, I sprinkled them with Copper Emboss powder and heat embossed them. Once cooled, I die cut them with the matching Paisley Framelits Dies.  

Paisley Birthday

I pulled out the leaf looking die from the Paisley Framelits and die cut one from the Copper Foil Sheets. Next,  I stamped Happy Birthday from Sunshine Sayings in Versa Mark ink onto a scrap of Night of Navy card stock and also heat embossed it with Copper Emboss powder.  It was cut out with a small Layering Oval Die and glued onto a Copper Foil label I punched with my Deco Label punch. The label and die cuts were popped onto the front with dimensionals.

 

 

Paisley Birthday

 

I used the Celebrate You sentiment from Suite Sayings and stamped it in Night of Navy ink onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Two strips of the Petals & Paisley Specialty DSP were added to the top and bottom of the sentiment panel.

 

Paisley Birthday

 

To  complete my Paisley Birthday card, I stamped the floral image onto a Very Vanilla medium envelope in Night of Navy ink.  

Card stock cuts in inches and products used in creating my card are at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Paisleys & Posies Thankful Card for the Happy Stampers

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

I am using Paisleys & Posies from Stampin’ Up! for my share for the Happy Stampers Hop today.  I think the Paisley Framelits Dies are just awesome, too. Bundle Paisleys & Posies and Paisley Framelits and save 10%.

We have a sketch to work with this week, why not try your hand at it, too? 

 

Happy Stampers Sketch challenge

 

I made my card horizontal rather than vertical:  

Paisleys & posies

 

I started with the beautifully patterned Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper in Rich Razzleberry.  It was framed with a little larger panel of Mint Macaron and adhered to it with liquid glue.  Next, I die cut the Gold Foil images from the Paisley Framelits Dies.  

 

Paisleys & Posies

 

I cut a strip of Mint Macaron Cardstock and punched one end with my Banner Triple Punch.  I inked up Thankful-Grateful-Blessed from the Paisleys & Posies stamp set in Versa Mark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I decided where I wanted the Paisley cut outs to go and grouped them with a little Gold 1./4″ Natural Trim and a bow of Gold Baker’s Twine.  I used some glue dots to hold them together and glued them to the banner. 

 

Paisleys & Posies

 

Both the banner, and the DSP panel were popped onto the Rich Razzleberry Cardstock base with dimensionals.

 

Paisleys & Posies

 

I stamped some of the Paisley images from Paisleys & Posies on the Very Vanilla Cardstock with Rich Razzleberry ink.  Then, I added the sentiment from the same set with Versa Mark ink and Gold Emboss Powder.

A complete list of the products and card stock cuts are at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Mats and Scoring Blades Now Available!

Stampin’ Up! just announced that they are bringing back the replacement Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Mats (item 131375)  and Scoring Blades (item 126995). These items are available for you to start ordering now.  Keep in mind that the cutting blade that comes with the Stampin’ Trimmer does not make contact with the cutting mat so it should not wear the mat down.  And, like the cutting mat, the scoring blade is made to last and will not wear out. These replacement items may be helpful for you if you lose a piece or prefer to have extras on hand.

Fall for Petals & Paisleys

Amy's Inkin' Krew Blog Hop

 

Thanks for stopping by for our Fall/Halloween Blog Hop!  I decided to create a Fall card using the Paisleys and Posies stamp set and the Paisley Framelits Dies Bundle for my share today. We are finally getting some beautiful fall weather and I know the leaves will be changing soon.  This Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper reminds me of those Fall leaves!  

 

Fall

 

This card came together very quickly, too!  I started with  a Delightful Dijon card base, and layered a panel of Mint Macaron card stock on top with liquid glue.  Next, I cut a panel of the beautiful Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper and layered it onto a little larger panel of Very Vanilla.  Then it was time for some stamping and die cutting!

 

Fall

 

I inked up the sentiment from Paisleys & Posies in Versa Mark onto a panel of Very Vanilla, and sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, then heat embossed it. It is die cut with a Layering Oval Die, then framed with a little larger Mint Macaron scalloped Oval Die.  I pulled out some Gold Foil card stock and the “leaf” shaped die from the Paisley Framelits Dies and die cut 2.  Burlap Ribbon was adhered to the DSP layers with Tear & Tape adhesive, then I popped that layer onto the card base.  Some Delightful Dijon and Mint Macaron 3/8″ Ribbon and Gold Sequin Trim are tied to the leaves with Gold Baker’s Twine and attached to the sentiment and then popped onto the front with dimensionals.

 

Fall

The inside sentiment is also from Paisleys & Posies and again, stamped in Versa Mark ink and Gold Embossing Powder.  A strip of Gold Foil lines the strip of Petals & Paisleys Specialty DSP  at the bottom of the Very Vanilla inside panel.  

Supplies will be listed at the bottom of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Paisleys & Posies Sympathy

Today I am sharing a Sympathy Card using the Paisleys & Posies stamp set, the Paisley Framelits Dies and the Petals and Posies Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I also added some of the matching 3/8″ Ribbon from the Ribbon trio pack in this suite of products. 

 

Paisleys & Posies Sympathy

 

 

My  sketch was inspired by the one at Retro Sketches this week, RS#230

 

Retro Sketches RS230

 

And the circle images are inspired by The Paper Players PP311

 

Paper Players 311

 

 

Because this Designer Series Paper is so beautiful all by itself, I decided to make my sentiment panel a little smaller than suggested in the sketch.  I stamped a panel of Very Vanilla with the sentiment from Suite Seasons in Rich Razzleberry ink and framed it with a little larger panel of Rich Razzleberry card stock using liquid glue.  

 

Paisleys & Posies Sympathy

 

Next, I stamped some of the images from Paisleys & Posies onto Very Vanilla card stock and cut them out with the Paisley Framelits Dies. Then, I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to fill in some of the uncolored spaces in the images. They were then popped onto the sentiment panel with dimensionals.  I layered the Petals & Paisleys DSP onto a tiny bit larger panel of Rich Razzelberry and adhered the Delightful Dijon ribbon to it first with some Tear & Tape Adhesive.  Next came the Rich Razzleberry Ribbon, leaving a little space between them, so that I could overlap the Mint Macaron ribbon on top.

I popped on the sentiment panel over the ribbons with dimensionals, then added all of that new panel to the front of my Night of Navy card base with dimensionals.

 

Paisleys Posies Sympathy

 

The inside sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases, and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink.  Then, I added another strip of that beautiful DSP to the bottom.  

 

Paisleys & Posies Sympathy

 

To  complete my Sympathy Card, I added a stamped image from Paisleys and Posies to the front of the envelope.  Dimensions in inches and Stampin’ Up! Products used in creating my card will be at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Giving Thanks at Thanksgiving

Want a fun way for Giving Thanks to family and friends at Thanksgiving?   I am sharing a trio of projects you can use for your holiday table setting.  The Pilgrim pair are compliments of Publix Supermarket!

 

Giving Thanks

 

I made a place setting holder using my Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlets Dies,Layering Ovals Framelits,  Kraft card stock, Copper Foil card stock , Night of Navy card stock and Petals and Paisleys Specialty DSP.  

 

Give Thanks

 

I made a belly band with the Paisleys and Posies DSP, then stamped the sentiment, from  Paisleys and Posies, in Versa Mark onto Night of Navy.  It was sprinkled with Copper Embossing Powder and heat embossed.  When cooled, I die cut it with a Layering Oval die and framed it in a little larger Copper Foil Layering Oval.  The idea for this came from Allison Okamitsu.  See her project HERE.

 

Giving Thanks

 

For the bag of treats, I used one of the Gusseted Cellophane Bags and lined it partially with the same piece of Paisleys and Posies DSP as used on the belly band above.  The Hersheys Nuggets are also wrapped with a !” X 3″ panel of this DSP and secured with glue dots.  I saw the idea for the bag over at Lisa Curcio’s blog.

The place card is a piece of Night of Navy card stock 4 1/8″ X  4 1/4″ scored and folded at 2 1/8″.  I added a panel of Very Vanilla that had the corners rounded with my Project Life Corner Rounder Punch.  The banner sentiment is from Sheltering Tree, stamped in Versa Mark and heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder.  Next, I die cut 2 of the leaf images from the Paisley Framelits Dies in Copper Foil and attached them to the end of the banner with liquid glue. The banner was attached to the place card with dimensionals.
