Jari Francis, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

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! Designer Tee Sneak Peek

I have another sneak peek for you today from the 2017 Sale-a-Bration Flyer!!  I am sharing one of the images from the Designer Tee stamp set. This stamp set is FREE with any $50 order beginning on January 4, 2017.  

 

Designer Tee

 

I started with a Whisper White note card and adhered a panel from the Carried Away Designer Series Paper.  This DSP is also available for FREE during Sale-a-Bration.  Next, I punched either end of my Tasty Treats Specialty DSP (the Pear Pizzaz piece) with my Banner Triple Punch.  I adhered it to the front with liquid glue.  The sentiment is from the Designer Tee stamp set and was stamped with Watermelon Wonder and Basic Black Archival Inks.  I used one of my Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut it out. Then, I looped some Linen Thread, adhering it to the back with dimensionals. 

 

Designer Tee

I just love the little train!  First, I stamped the sentiment in Watermelon Wonder with the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig. Then, I inked up the train only using my Basic Black Archival ink and stamped it in front of the sentiment.  

 

Designer Tee

 

Finally, for the finishing touches, I added some Pear Pizzaz Enamel Shapes to the front of the card.   The Designer Tee stamp set coordinates with Custom Tee stamp set and the T-shirt Builder Framelits Dies in the upcoming 2017 Occasions catalog. Fun!! 

Here is a peek at the whole stamp set:

Stampin’ Up! Festive Birthday

I’m sharing a festive birthday card today using the Stylized Birthday stamp from Stampin’ Up!  I also got some help from the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper!  

Festive Birthday

 

I love this fun new Happy Birthday stamp as it is large and has a great font!  It is perfect for making a quick sentiment that packs a lot of punch.  

 

festive birthday

 

I started by stamping Happy Birthday in Melon Mambo onto a panel of Whisper White, then die cut it using a Layering Square Framelits Die.  Then I made a slightly larger frame for it with Melon Mambo cardstock and a scalloped die from the same set.  They were adhered with liquid glue.

 

festive birthday

 

I cut a panel from the Festive Birthday DSP to fit onto the front of the Crushed Curry card base and glued it to the front. Then, I cut a strip of Tempting Turquoise for the narrow band and dry embossed it with the Lucky Stars Textured Embossing Folder.  It was then glued on top of the Festive Birthday panel.  I popped the sentiment panel on with dimensionals and then added the Enamel Shapes.

 

festive birthday

 

For the inside, I layered panels of Melon Mambo and Whisper White onto the Crushed Curry base.  Then, I stamped the sentiment from Better Together in Melon Mambo ink.  A thin panel of the same Festive Birthday DSP was added to the bottom, and there you have it, a quick and festive birthday card!

Thoughtful Branches Thank You Cards

Today’s share is from Thoughtful Branches, the limited time offer stamp set bundle from Stampin’ Up!  I made two Thoughtful Branches Thank You cards to show you how versatile this set is.  I love it that you can use it for any season!  

Thoughtful Branches Thank You Cards

 

For the fall Thoughtful Branches Thank You card, I chose to use the leaf images and stamped them in Cajun Craze, Soft Suede and Crushed Curry on a panel of Whisper White.  The bottom two leaves were die cut with the Beautiful Branches Thinlets and popped onto the front with dimensionals.  The sentiment is also from Thoughtful Branches and is stamped in Soft Suede ink.  

 

Thoughtful Branches Thank You Card

 

I wrapped a length of Linen Thread around the stem of the leaf and tied a bow.  My art panel is framed with a panel of Cajun Craze and then popped onto the note card front with dimensionals.   I left the inside blank for plenty of room for a note to be written.

My spring/summer Thoughtful Branches Thank You card uses one of the other images from the stamp set.  This image may be used for the trees, but I am using it as the flower heads.  My flower stems are actually the ground images!  

 

Thoughtful Branches Thank You card

 

I used Blushing Bride and Wisteria Wonder for the “flower heads”  and used Wild Wasabi for the “stems” and the leaves.  I stamped the thank you sentiment from Thoughtful Branches in Wisteria Wonder and die cut it with a die from the Rose Garden Thinlets.  

Both of these went together so quickly!   If you are considering purchasing this stamp set bundle, don’t delay.  I am thinking a set of Thoughtful Branches Thank You Cards would make a wonderful gift for someone, and the holidays are approaching us very soon!

Stampin’ Up! Weather Together

My share for today is from Weather Together, one of the new Stampin’ Up! stamp sets/bundles.  I am loving all of the new bundles, not only because there is a 10% discount when you bundle, but because of all of the awesome thinlets, framelets and punches that help make your card extra special and, easy to put together!

 

Weather Together

 

First, I added a strip of Sof Sky Subtles DSP to the top of a Whisper White panel with glue, then I stamped the raindrop images from Weather Together in Soft Sky onto the Whisper White.  I framed this panel with a panel of Calypso Coral using liquid glue to attach them.

 

 

Weather Together

 

Next, I stamped the umbrella top in Calypso Coral and the handle in Early Expresso ink onto a panel of Whisper White thick card stock and die cut them using the Umbrella Weather Framelits.  I used a little glue to adhere the handle to the back of the umbrella top, then attached the whole piece to the front of the card with dimensionals.

I stamped some clouds in Soft Sky and used the matching Framelits die to cut them out.  They are added to the front with dimensionals.

 

Weather Together

 

The sentiment is also found in the Weather Together set and is stamped in Early Expresso onto a panel of Soft Sky, then die cut with the banner from the Large Numbers Framelits die set.  To finish off the front, I added a small bow using the Calypso Coral baker’s twine and the silver heart from my Metallic Enamel Shapes.  

 

Weather Together

 

For the inside, I added more of the Soft Sky DSP to the top and bottom of the Whisper White panel, then stamped another umbrella  in Calypso Coral and Early Expresso inks. ( I used a different image from the set for the handle). The sentiment is  also stamped in Early Expresso.

 

Don’t you love Weather Together?  Lots of fun images and sentiments plus die cuts!!  Check it out on page 55 of the Annual catalog.

Stampin’ Up! Papillon Potpourri & 2016-2018 In Colors

Happy Saturday!  Hope it’s a stamping Saturday for all of you stampers out there.   Today is the perfect day for stamping where I live because it looks like rain-and I don’t feel like getting soaked.  So, stamp it is!  My share today is using Papillon Potpourri with some of the new In-Colors and a new stamp set from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog, Thoughtful Banners.

 

Papillon Potpourri

 

This was another really quick and easy card, even though I used 4 different stamp sets!  I started with Gorgeous Grunge for the background for my butterflies.  I used Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo  ink, (both new In-Colors) on my Whisper White panel to break up the white space. 

Papillon Potpourri

Next, I stamped the butterflies from Papillon Potpourri, in Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum and Peekaboo Peach. I punched them out with the Elegant Butterfly punch and popped them on the Whisper White panel with dimensionals. The banner is from the new Thoughtful Banners Stamp set, and is stamped in Sweet Sugarplum ink, then punched out with the new Duet Banner punch. This punch may be bought as a bundle with the Thoughtful Banners stamps, and you save 10% !  The banner was also attached with dimensionals.

Papillon Potpourri

The art panel was then popped onto the Sweet Sugarplum card base with dimensionals and I added a few Rhinestone Jewels for some bling.
Papillon Potpourri

 

I used the sentiment from Suite Sayings and stamped it in Sweet Sugarplum, then added another butterfly image from Papillon Potpourri in the corner.

Papillon Potpourri is a great stamp set to add to your collection because butterflies can be added to almost any card!

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! Time of Year Host Set Sneak Peek

My share for today is a quick and easy card using Time of Year, a host stamp set from the new 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

 

Time of Year

While browsing through my new catalog, I noticed this card (a very similar one) on page 200, with Quick + Easy written in the corner.  So, I decided to make it my own by changing the colors a little, adding a couple of more layers and fussy cutting the banner and popping it onto the front with dimensionals.  (Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies are available on June 1st, so no more fussy cutting these banners)

The one pictured in the catalog is all one layer, which makes it very quick and easy, but even though mine has a couple of layers, it should be classified as very quick and easy, too.  It’s nice to have a card started and finished in a matter of minutes, right?

Time of Year

 

Time of Year is a great stamp set to use many times of the year, hence the name!  The other banner sentiments say Christmas, Birthday and Time of Year and the words At, This and On Your. Plus, you have the flowers as above, an acorn and leaf and holly berries and leaves to add as accents.  This set is photopolymer, too.

Time of Year

 

Remember, Time of Year is a host set, and can only be purchased when you host a Stampin’ Up! party, or you may use your Stampin’ Rewards earned from hosting a party to buy host only items.

 

Steps to make this card:

  1. Stamp the sentiment in Wild Wasabi onto a panel of Whisper White card stock
  2. Stamp the flowers in Flirty Flamingo (available June 1st) on either side of the sentiment
  3. Stamp the banner in Peekaboo Peach (available June 1st) onto a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock
  4. Punch out the banner with Bunch of Banners Framelits (available June 1st) and adhere it to the front with dimensionals
  5. Snail the art piece to a panel of Wild Wasabi
  6. Pop the framed art piece onto the Whisper White Thick card stock base
  7. Add some Pearls Basic jewels to the front

 

Card stock cuts are at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blossoms Drapery Fold Card

My share for this Tuesday is a Drapery Fold card using the Birthday Blossoms stamp set from Stampin’ Up! I have seen these all over social media and just had to try it. Wow, it is easy and fun!

 

Drapery Fold

 

I used a 12 X 12 sheet of Birthday Bouquet DSP that was trimmed to 4 x 11 1/2 and then scored and folded.  Here is a tutorial for you. There are plenty of examples out there!  

I love this DSP and will be sad to see it retire in a few short weeks.  Make sure you get it before it is gone!  

 

Drapery Fold

 

I used a Mint Macaron card base and added a layer of the dotted Birthday Bouquet.  I decided to stamp in Early Expresso ink right on top of that dotted paper.  Not my usual-but thought it would be fun!  The ribbon and bow are also in Early Expresso.  This ribbon is also retiring soon.  

And the inside has the same DSP with the sentiment from Birthday Blossoms stamped in Early Expresso ink.

 

Drapery Fold

 

The envelope needed some interest, so I used the Envelope Liners Framelits (retiring :() to make a pretty lining.

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.

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.

Making these was a snap using the One Big Meaning stamp set and I am happy that a little more of my DSP is getting used up.  Yea!  The new annual catalog is right around the corner! Can’t wait to see what is new.
