In Honor of the Queen: a Card

I know many of you watched the wedding of Meghan and Harry.  Did you find yourself looking at all the people through the Stampin' Up! colors?  I have to admit that's often how I view the world.  Did you notice the Lemon-Lime Twist and Gorgeous Grape worn by Queen Elizabeth.  I got this pic from Google.

She really looked pretty although a smile might would help.  I decided to make a card with the same colors in honor of the queen.

Of course we needed flowers on the card!  Do you see what I used for the flower?  Well, we'll get to that.

The base is Lemon Lime Twist 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The Gorgeous Grape layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  The next Lemon Lime layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  Run this layer through the Big Shot with the Garden Trellis embossing folder.  This folder makes everything looks fancy!

The petals of the flower are made with the sea weed framelit from the Under the Sea Framelits.  Don't you just love finding a new way to use something!  This is not an original idea.  I saw it somewhere on Pinterest, but I can't find it now to give credit.  Make 4 of the sea weed shapes in Gorgeous Grape and adhere them with a little glue.  The center of the flower is a Lemon Lime Twist 1/2 inch circle.  Just punch it.  I played with the paper until I could pull it apart.  That makes it have a suede like appearance.  

The leaves are from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  They are Mossy Meadow.  Adhere the flower and leaves with dimensionals.

Finally, the sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.  Use the Classic Label Punch to punch it out.

For the inside I added another flower.  The saying is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.

I really love how this card turned out.  These colors do look great together.

A Wedding Card

It's not that easy coming up with cards for my blog when I feel that my mojo is gone. Once in a while the ideas come.  Lately, not so much.  I did get a few new sets lately (new to me anyway) and that has helped.  One of my new sets is Better Together.  It was in last year's catalog.  I didn't want to get it until I knew it would be carried over. This set has some great sayings that can be paired so that you have something for the outside and the inside of the card.  There is one flower with the set and that's what I chose to feature.

Better Together Wedding card

You are going to want all of the new In Colors for 2017-2019!  Today I am using Berry Burst.  Isn't it lovely!  If you are a Stampin' Up! demo, you can order it now!  Want more information?  Contact me.

  • The card base is Berry Burst card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score at 4 1/4.
  • The next layer is Whisper White.  It measures 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.
  • There's another Berry Burst layer that is 3 3/8 x 4 5/8.
  • The last layer is the gold dots from the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It measures 3 1/4 x 4 1/2.
  • The sentiment is embossed with the Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Just stamp using the Versamark pad on to Whisper White card stock.  Use a dry paint brush to brush away any stray powder before you heat with the Heat Tool.  Use an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies to cut out the sentiment.
  • The flowers were also embossed with gold.  Stamp with Versamark on Watercolor Paper.  Emboss.  Using the Aqua Painter and the ink from the lids of the Berry Burst and the Lemon Lime Twist pads, paint in the flowers.  Allow to dry and then you'll have to fussy cut them out.  I used a total of 8 flowers.  Some are on the inside.

  • Attach the flowers with a combinations of glue and dimensionals.  The oval was added with dimensionals.  So the flowers were glued on top of the oval and dimensionals were put where the flowers spill over onto the card.

Wedding 2

The sentiment for the inside of the card was also embossed in gold.  Glue the flowers in place.

The gold dotted paper is one of those specialty papers that is really hard to cut.  I do think it was perfect for this card.  You just can't go wrong with a little gold at a wedding, can you.

Better Together

As I write this post the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper is still on the Retiring List for just $7.80.  That's a great bargain.  Just click below to go to my store.  I would love to have your business!  Thanks for stopping by today.

June is For Weddings! and SUO Challenge #149

Over at SU- Only Challenges, they are all about weddings this week.  It is June now. Check them out here.  I thought I would play along.  Here's the wedding card that I made.

Wedding suo

I must be addicted to the new Swirly Birds set.  Here it is again!  Here is how the card is made.

  • The card base uses Dapper Denim.  It's one of the new in colors for 2016-2018!  I'm loving it!
  • Next is a layer of Whisper White cut 4 x 5 1/4.
  • I'm thinking silver for a wedding.  I used the Swirly Birds stamp.  Rub your card stock with the embossing buddy.  I stamped in Versamark, added silver embossing powder, and heated with my heat tool.
  • I added a piece of silver diagonal stripe using the Neutrals Designer Series Paper stack to the bottom of the layer.  It measures 2 1/4 x 4.
  • Cut a piece of Silver Foil 3/4 by 4.  Embossing this using the Elegant Dots embossing folder. Adhere at the seam.
  • For my sentiments, I used the stamp set Rose Wonder, inside and out.  Both sentiments are embossed in silver.  For the front of the card, I stamped on Whisper White and punched it out with the 2 inch circle punch.
  • The circle needed a color behind to anchor it so I added a circle of Dapper Denim.  I used the retired Circles Collection Framelits for this.  My new Layering Circles Framelits are ordered and on their way, but until then I must make do, right?

Wedding suo close up

  • The flowers are punched from Dapper Denim using the Petite Petals punch and then sponged with the Denim ink.
  • I used the Festive Flower Builder punch for the leaves.  I punched them out of Old Olive card stock.  I went back to the Swirly Bird stamp set for the veins in the leaves, stamped in Old Olive and sponged in the same color.  They'll punch out hooked together.  Just cut them apart.


Wedding suo inside

Here's the inside of the card.  As I mentioned above, it's also embossed in silver.  I added another flower. I put the tinier pearls on the inside of the card to keep it from being so bulky.  I decided that I like that look.  So I made another card.

Paper Pumpkin Goes Wedding!

I just love opening my mail box to find a brand new Paper Pumpkin.  It's exciting to see the new stamp set and the color of the ink spot!  Below is a video of the new Paper Pumpkin for May, 2016. Spoiler Alert if you haven't received yours yet.

 

This kit is great for those masculine cards you might need.  I decided to go in the opposite direction. With the use of some Silver Foil Sheets and the new Love & Affection stamp set, I made a wedding card.

PP wedding full

The Love & Affection set will be in the new Stampin' Up! catalog beginning on June 1st.  Need a catalog?  Contact me.  Here are the details for the card.

  • Using the stamp set Tin of Cards, stamp Happy Wedding in Versamark ink.  Coat with silver embossing powder, and heat with your heat tool.  Don't forget to use your embossing buddy first.
  • Cut a piece of Silver Foil card 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Put a glue dot from the kit in each corner.  Adhere this behind the laser cut out panel.
  • Using Whisper White card stock, stamp two of the larger flowers from Love & Affection and three of the smaller flowers in Versamark, coat in silver embossing powder, and heat.  Use that embossing buddy!  Now stamp the inside of the flowers with Versamark, coat, and heat.
  • Sorry to say, but the flowers have to be cut out by hand.  The embossing actually makes it much easier to cut.
  • Using the Rose Garden thinlits, cut out leaves from Pear Pizzazz card stock.
  • Adhere all of your pieces to the card.  I put dimensionals behind the small flowers.

I love how it turned out.  Masculine turns feminine!

I did make the cards from the kit.  I do need some masculine cards you know.
