Stampin' Up! Delicate Doilies and Zentangle

My Stampin' Up! greeting card for you today features the Stampin' Up! Delicate Doilies Stamp Set and the art of tangling or doodling. 



The card base is made with the Stampin' Up! In Color, Pool Party.  The first layer is So Saffron cardstock of which I tangled along the outside.  This zentangle pattern is called "Cadent".  It took some time to master it as well as draw it around the cardstock.  What a relaxing form of art!

The second layer is Pool Party cardstock that is embellished with the Stampin' Up! Houndstooth Embossing Folder.  It is wrapped with Wisteria Wonder 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon.  For the doily, I stamped one of the images from the Delicate Doilies stamp set three times onto Whisper White cardstock; once each in Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, and So Saffron Stampin' Inks. I cut out the middle section of the Pool Party doily and the center of the So Saffron doily and layered them on top of each other using Stampin' Dimensionals.  The doily is topped of with a Stampin' Up! Basic Rhinestone Jewel.  The "heartfelt thanks" sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! Fabulous Phrases Stamp Set, and it too included rhinestone jewels.

Stampin' Up! Mocha Morning Purse, Wallet, and Birthday Card

Do I have a Stampin' Up! cutie for you today!! It is a paper purse that I personally designed with the gorgeous Stampin' Up! Mocha Morning Designer Series Paper (DSP), a small matching wallet, and birthday card. I wish you could feel the black velvet on this DSP - such a luscious DSP. If you do not have this DSP, you must buy it.  It is so gorgeous and you certainly will be happy with your Mocha Morning DSP creations!


The pictures below are of each item in the set.  Unfortunately, my camera is on its last leg and isn't taking very good pictures.  I guess it's time for a new one!


This picture shows the small wallet and Happy Birthday Card inside the purse.  As you can see, there is plenty of room for them as well as other cards or items (i.e., keys for your daughter's new car!).


The purse is 7" x 4-1/2" x 1", and the wallet 4" x 2-3/4" x 1/2".  The purse has an outside pocket in which a gift card could be placed.  The small matching wallet will hold easily a gift card, money, etc.  The set would be a great birthday gift for a daughter or special friend.

The Stampin' Up! products used for the set are (buy these products by clicking on the links):

Stampin' Up! Mocha Morning DSP
Black and Crumb Cake Cardstock
Perfect Pennants Bigz Die
1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch
Scallop Trim Border Punch
Crumb Cake 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon
Bring on the Cake Stamp Set (the sentiment)
Antique Brads
Black Pearls

The black pearls are Stampin' Up! Black Flourish Designer Jewels that were available in the Sept 2010 - Jan 2011 Holiday Mini Catalog.  I am lucky to have some left for embellishing the ribbon on the front of the purse and wallet and the corners of the card.

GET THIS DSP - YOU WILL LOVE IT!

More Tips on the Stampin' Up! Blossom Box

As a result of my post yesterday regarding the Stampin' Up! Blossom Box, I received a lot of questions regarding how to get the box top to stay down and how to add embellishments to the box top so the box will open freely.  I made another box to demonstrate what I think will answer these questions; or maybe I should say, at least it works for me!

TIP 1.  After assembling your box, push the top down, and with your fingers pinch tightly each fold along the top to ensure it is crisply folded.  As a result, the top stays down without any adhesive.  (My final box was made with a different cardstock than that in this picture.)


TIP 2.  If you choose to add an embellishment around the circumference of the box, it cannot be glued to the box or the box won't open.  I chose to add ribbon around the box.  To add ribbon, measure the circumference of the box.  Use this measurement to cut a piece of ribbon (or another type of embellishment).  Glue the ribbon ends together and add an embellishment to the ribbon if desired.


TIP 3.  Create another embellishment for the box top (I created a butterfly).  You want to strategically add the embellishment to the box top in a manner that allows the box to open.  To accomplish this, I added crystal effects to the center of ONE fold, ensuring that I did not get it anywhere but on the one fold.  I then placed the bottom left wing of the butterfly to the adhesive.  You will determine where on one fold to add your embellishment, depending on what it is. 



TIP 4.  After adding your embellishment, catch one fold with your finger and pull.  Volia! The box opens with the embellishment attached and not in the way.  The box is ready for you to insert a piece of jewelry, candy, or any small gift.


TIP 5.  Fold the box back together and push the top back down.



TIP 6.  Add your embellishment around the circumference of the box.  I pushed my ribbon onto the box from the bottom up to the center.  The ribbon fits snugly.


TIP 7:  The assembled box is 1 1/16" deep and 2 1/2" wide.  I can easily place two bite-size candy bars inside and it is perfect for a bracelet or necklace that is flexible and just falls into a "pile" when placed in the box.  This picture shows the box with two necklaces and matching earrings inside.

  
Now, how perfect is that? And what a beautiful gift box to give to a special someone. 

The following picture is a top view of the box.

Stampin' Up! Blossom Box and Tips for Cutting

Wow!  Have you tried to assemble the Stampin' Up! Blossom Box yet?  My first one went together quite well, but then the next ones were somewhat of a struggle for me.  However, I managed, as I'm sure you will, to assemble them, and here they are:


FRONT VIEW


TOP VIEW

I think they turned out beautifully.  What do you think?  Can you image receiving one of these from your husband or boyfriend with a ring inside?  Or maybe a necklace and/or bracelet from a friend or family member?  I think they would be so cute for that.

I glued the tops down so I could embellish the boxes with pieces cut with the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die,  Flower, Daisies #2 Bigz Die, Island Floral Bigz Die, and Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die.  I love the Stampin' Up! Big Shot Dies!  I hope you have them all to create beautiful art!  If not, click on these links and they will take you directly to the product on-line for you to buy.

Would you like some Tips for Using the Stampin' Up! Blossom Bigz Die?  Let me provide some.

TIP 1.  The most important thing about the TWO pieces that you cut with the Die is to ensure you have well-defined creases/folds.  If you don't, you'll find it difficult to fold and assemble.

TIP 2.  Because Designer Series Papers (DSP) are thinner than the Stampin' Up! Cardstock, they will crease better, making it easier to fold.  However, handling the DSP while making the many folds seems to cause the folds to fray somewhat, leaving the white part of the paper showing (or at least this happened for me).  I found the cardstock to work better, although it takes more effort to fold.  

TIP 3.  If your creases don't show up well on cardstock after cutting, you can cut the pieces one of two ways (there may be others):

1) place a thin piece of paper on top of your Big Shot sandwich to provide a bit more pressure when cutting the pieces, or
2) run the sandwich through the Big Shot about three times (that worked well for me). 

If you follow 2), don't remove the sandwich from the Big Shot; roll it though to the end and then roll it back, etc.  And don't put an extra piece of cardstock on top of the sandwich or your creases will be cuts instead of creases (or at least that happened to me).  

Have great fun making yours!

Stampin' Up! Creative Elements - You Mean the World to Me

Don't you just love the new Stampin' Up! Creative Elements Stamp SetBuy this set as you'll find several uses for it.  My Stampin' Up! Greeting Card today features this stamp set along with the Stampin' Up! Word Play Stamp Set

I used two stamp images from the Creative Elements set, the flower and flourish flair (my name for the stamp).  I inked the flower in Island Indigo Ink and stamped it on Whisper White cardstock three times.  I cut out the three flowers, leaving one for the bottom layer.  Then I cut out the the middle section of the second flower and the very center part of the third flower, assembling them with Stampin' Up! Dimensionals to give the flower a 3-D effect.

I inked the flourish flair stamp with Pool Party Ink and stamped randomly onto the Pool Party Cardstock, which is the base for the card.  I added six strips of Rich Razzelberry Cardstock to the top and side of the card and embellished them with the Creative Elements flower and Island Indigo flowers made with the Boho Blossoms Punch

The sentiment, You Mean the World to Me, from the Word Play stamp set, was stamped onto Pool Party cardstock with Island Indigo ink and mounted onto Rich Razzelberry and Island Indigo cardstock.  Lastly, Basic Pearls Jewels were added for an additional embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my creation.  Don't waste time searching for the products used in this project.  Just click on the links and you'll be taken directly to the product at my on-line store.

Stampin' Up! Greeting Card - Paper Quilling

Have you tried to make a Stampin' Up! Greeting Card by paper quilling?  What is paper quilling, you ask.  Quilling (also known as paper filigree) was born over five hundred years ago when artists discovered that narrow strips of paper could be rolled, scrolled, fluted, and fringed and then arranged on their edges to create beautiful designs.  Today, though quilling tastes, tools, and even materials have changed, this fascinating art form still thrives.

Yesterday I received my September issue of "Stampin' Success" (a magazine for Demos only), and it contains an article on paper quilling.  This article inspired me to develop this greeting card using the art of quilling, which I've not done in a while.  I hope you like it!



To make this card, I first used that wonderful Stampin' Up! creation - the Lace Ribbon Border Punch - on a piece of Old Olive cardstock.  To this I added tape and filled the ribbon with Aqua Stampin' Glitter.  I added the ribbon to the bottom of my Tempting Turquoise card front, only showing a portion of the ribbon.  Then on a circular piece of Whisper White cardstock, I began quilling cardstock to form my flowers, buds, stems, and leaves.  Yes, you can use Stampin' Up! cardstock when quilling.  The Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers are easier to quill, but don't let anyone tell you that you cannot use cardstock.

How do you quill?  Here are basic instructions; however, if you've not quilled before, you should research the art to get a complete understanding of how to quill.


TUTORIAL
The basics of quilling takes surprisingly little.  In fact, two functional hands, some strips of cardstock or DSP, one quilling tool (a Stampin' Up! piercing tool will do the trick; just don't prick yourself), glue, and you're off to a good start.  There are other tools for quilling, but for the basics, this is all you need.

Step 1:  For the petals of the above flower, you will cut seven strips of cardstock or DSP (your choice) at 1/8" x 6".  With the seven 1/8" x 6" strips, you'll make seven "Marquise Flowers".

Step 2:  To make Marquise Flowers, use your piercing tool (or a slotted quilling tool), placing the end of a strip either around the piercing tool or into the slot of the quilling tool.



Step 3: Turn the tool towards you, rolling up the paper into a "Loose Circle".







 























Step 4:  Place glue on the end of the Loose Circle and attach it to the side.



Step 5:  Pinch the Loose Circle on opposite sides.  Now you have a Marquise Flower (or a petal).


















Step 6:  Cut a piece of cardstock or DSP at 1/8" x 3" and roll it up in the same manner as Step 1, except make it tight ("Tight Circle").  Glue the end to the side.  Start gluing onto a piece of cardstock (circle, square, etc.) the Marquise Flowers at the ends and onto the Tight Circle until you have all seven flowers into place.
















Step 7:  Make a stem by cutting a piece of green cardstock at 1/8" wide and as long as you need.  Glue the stem on its side between two Marquise Flowers on a piece of cardstock (circle, square, etc.) (see picture of card for placement). 

Step 8:  To create the leaves and a portion of the buds, cut cardstock or DSP into 1/8" x 3" pieces.  Follow Steps 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Step 9:  Pinch only one side of the leaves and buds to form "Teardrop Flowers". 

Step 10:  For the remainder of the bud, cut a piece of cardstock or DSP at 1/8" x 2".  Fold the piece in half creating a V shape.

Step 11:  Using the Piercing Tool or a Slotted Quilling Tool, roll one side of the V towards you and the other away from you.  This creates a "V Scroll" into which you glue a Teardrop Flower (the bud).

Step 12:  Follow Step 8 to create a stem and glue it onto the end of the bud.  Add a green Teardrop Flower for a leaf, and glue these to the cardstock.

Step 13:  Glue your stems together and attach to cardstock (see card for placement).

Step 14:  Use either the Blossom Petals Builder Punch to cut two leaves or create them by cutting out a leaf shape from green cardstock.

Step 15:  Curl the leaves slightly and glue them to the bottom of the stems.

YOUR DESIGN IS FINISHED!  I hope to hear from you regarding my card and this tutorial.

Stampin' Up! Thank You Greeting Card - Berry Blossoms

Thanks for stopping by to see my Stampin' Up! creations!  I hope you had a great weekend!  My card share for you features the attractive Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I have to admit that I was hesitant initially to purchase this DSP.  Now that I've used it, I'm glad I purchased it.  The colors are so bold, and I love bold colors.  Take a look and share what you think about the card.

 
As the first card layer, I placed a piece of the Berry Blossoms DSP to a Wisteria Wonder card.  Then I decided to place a pleated band made with a piece of the DSP as the second layer on the center of the card.  To make the band, I took a 3" x 10" of the DSP and scored it at 1/4" and 3/4" intervals.  I folded the first scored line forwards, the second backwards, continuing in this manner down the entire piece.  I adhered the pleats on the back with tape to keep them in place before adding them to the card.  Next I added a piece of the DSP that matched the first layer to a piece of Wisteria Wonder cardstock and place it across the center of the pleats.  I topped it off with two scalloped circles with a sentiment from the Elegant Thank You stamp.


I hope you enjoy my creation; it is a simple Thank You card to make!  If you don't have this DSP, I encourage you to buy it, especially if you like bold colors.  You can buy it and other products here.

Stampin' Up! Greeting Card - Creative Elements

Here is another simple Stampin' Up! greeting card featuring the new Stampin' Up! In Color, Pool Party, and Creative Elements Stamp Set (the flower and butterflies).   The new In Color group contains such beautiful colors.  I'm finding  myself wanting to only use these colors, which will change I'm sure because of the beautiful Designer Series Papers that have been issued.

This card's sentiment, life is a matter of moments, is so true.  Once a moment is gone, it cannot be recaptured.  Isn't that thought profound?  So we should ensure every moment relates to enjoying Stampin' Up! products! (LOL)  Just kidding!!!  Anyway, the sentiment is from the Elements of Style Stamp Set (such a beautiful stamp set!).


The script on the Pool Party cardstock is from a retired stamp; however, the En Francais Stamp provides the same effect.  The two other colors of cardstock is So Saffron and Not Quite Navy.

If you have questions regarding the card, please leave your question in the comments section.

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Greeting Card

Do you have difficulty creating Stampin' Up! greeting cards for men?  What do you usually rely on for elements of the card - trees, boats, lighthouses, birds, etc.?  If so, you're like me.  Making masculine cards is one of my struggles when it comes to card making.  Therefore, I decided to use primarily paper and sentiments for this Happy Birthday card for a male.  However, I did add a bird at the last minute (can't help myself...LOL). 

I created this card with the new Stampin' Up! Well Worn Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Not Quite Navy, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, and Very Vanilla cardstock.  The sentiment, "You only live once..." is from the Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp Set (A floral stamp set for a masculine card???).  The Happy Birthday cake is from the Stampin' Up! Bring on the Cake Stamp Set.   The beautiful bird is the Stampin' Up! Young Vermillion that I used colored pencils to apply color.  Isn't he cute?  Please enjoy!


Do you have this DSP?  If not, this is a great month to stock up on DSP while there's a special going on.  Click on "Stampin' Up! Specials" at the top of this site for complete details.  Purchase the products used for this project by clicking on the links in this post.

Stampin' Up! Greeting Card - Paisley Petals - For You

Loving the Stampin' Up! Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper (DSP) as I do, I was excited to receive my Stampin' Up! Paisley Petals Stamp Set so I could make a greeting card that features one of the stamps.  This card spotlights the largest stamp of the set, and I used colored pencils and Stampin' Markers to color the image.  The colors I used are different from the ones in the DSP.  I used two of the new In-Color Inks and Cardstock, the Wisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade, in addition to the beautiful Cherry Cobbler Ink and Cardstock.  You will also see Pink Pirouette in the colored image.


The "for you" sentiment is from the Clearly for You Stamp Set, and it is on two different labels.  The top label is from the Matchbox Bigz Die, and the bottom label is from the Sizzlits Lots of Tags Die .  The labels sit upon Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon to which I adhered Olive Stampin' Glitter, Fine Supernova.  The bottom of the card features the new Wisteria Wonder Printed Designer In Color Brads
