Thoughtful Wishes Bundle with the Thoughtful Journey Designer Series Paper

Hello to you today!  Thanks for checking in with me today.  I have a beautiful card using the brand new Thoughtful Wishes bundle.  Find it on pages 46 and 47 of the new catalog.  It's coming to everyone on May 1.  The bundle is also part of the Thoughtful Journey Suite Collection.  Here's my card.

Thoughtful Wishes Bundle  Watercolor Paper  2024-2026 n Color Resin Dots  Water Painters  Petal Pink and White Diagonal Trim Combo Pack  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

 

I love how this card turned out.  The base of this card is Lost Lagoon 4  1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2.  The front of the card is covered with a piece of the Thoughtful Journey 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Cut the paper 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 to fit the front of the card.  I chose this piece of designer paper because it matched my base of Lost Lagoon.  It's a perfect piece to build a card.   I used the package seen on page 46 as the inspiration for this card.

Cut the largest die from the Thoughtful Wishes dies in Lost Lagoon.  Glue to the card front in the  center and just a little to the left.

Stamp the saying from Thoughtful Wishes inPetunia Pop on a Basic White scrap.  Cut it out with the saying near the bottom using a die from the Autumn Leaves dies.  Glue the label to the right and below the mid point of the front.

Thoughtful Wishes  Watercolor Paper  2024-2026 n Color Resin Dots  Water Painters  Close Up of Card  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Cut the following from a piece of Watercolor Paper:  three of the flowers with a long stem and 5 of the leaves that are more solid and the veins cut out.  Color the flowers and leaves with Water Painters.  Use Petunia Pop and Old Olive ink pads.  I put ink on a clear block and use that to color.  No need to try to make all of the color uniform.

Build the flowers and leaves on the label.  Glue.  

Use the white ribbon from the Petal Pink & White Trim combo Pack.  Tie it around the front of the card and hide the base of the flowers and leaves.  Tie in a knot at the left of the label.

Finish with the 2024-2026 In Color Resin Dots to embellish.

The saying on the inside of the card is from Thoughtful Wishes in Petunia Pop.  Use Stampin' Write markers directly on the red rubber of the stamp and stamp in the center of the bottom.  Cut three more leaves from Watercolor Paper and paint as before.  Glue to the card stock.

I've been challenged to make 6 cards with the Thoughtful Wishes bundle.  So far I have posted 3 of them.  You can find the other two here and here.

Thoughtful Wishes and a Few More Sneak Peeks

Hello!  I'm so glad you came to visit today.  I have a few brand new products to share with you.  The new 2024-2025 Stampin' Up! catalog goes live for everyone on May 1.  I am in love with the Thoughtful Wishes bundle.  Between now and the end of the month, you'll see a lot of samples using the Thoughtful Wishes stamp set and dies along with some other new products.  Who doesn't love a sneak peek?!

Thoughtful Wishes Bundle Card  Dotted Circles EF  Blends  Unbounded Love dies  2024-2026 In Color Resin Dots  Card Front  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

You may first notice the embossing folder.  It's called the Dotted Circles 3D Embossing Folder.  I embossed a piece of Basic White card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  I then cut my paper.  I tried to keep the pieces in order.  I have strips of 1/2, 1, and 1 1/4.  I placed these to the right of the card.  They are added to the card with Foam Adhesive Sheets.

The card base is Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2.  Use you Bone Folder for the fold.

Stamp the large leafy plant in Memento Black on Basic White.  Color with the new In Color Shy Shamrock Blends.  Cut out with the Thoughtful Wishes dies.

Thoughtful Wishes Bundle  Dotted Circles EF  Blends  Unbounded Love dies  2024-2026 In Color Resin Dots  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Glue one to the right of the card.  Add Mini Dimensionals to the other wherever you can find the space.  Lean this stem over to the left.

Cut another of the dies from Pretty in Pink card stock.  That's one of our new In colors.  It's a color from long ago, but it has made a come back!  Clip the flowers from the stem.  Add these with a little dot of glue.

The saying is from the Thoughtful Wishes stamp set.  Cut it out with a die from the Unbounded Love dies, also something new!  Cut another of the dies from Pretty in Pink.  Cut the label in half and glue to each end of the white label.  Add with dimensionals at the base of the leaf stems.

Of course you'll need some of the new 2024-2026 In Color Resin Dots!

For the inside, add some strips of the left over paper from embossing.  I didn't worry about trying to match it.  Add a few blooms left over from adding them to the front.  The saying is from Thoughtful Wishes as well.

Use That 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Several Samples

With the January-April Mini and the 2023 Annual catalogs coming to an end soon, I have been thinking about all of the designer papers that I haven't used yet.  Somehow, I don't think I'm the only one, now am I?  New papers are coming so I need to get busy and use some of the old.  I found a great tutorial by Jacque Williams.  I'll share the link to her video later.

6 x 6 DSP Fun Fold  Glorious Gingham DSP  Thoughtful Expressions dies  Adhesive Backed Hearts and Flowers  Simply Zinnia dies  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

This card does not waste any of the paper at all!

I've used the Glorious Gingham 6 x 6 paper for this card.  I love ginghams.

Start with your 6 x 6 paper and cut 1/2 inch from the side.  Now this paper does not have a direction.  If your paper does, make sure you cut from the side.  Turn your paper so that the 6 inch part is at the top.  Score at 1/2 and again at 4 3/4.

Fold the half inch part backward and the other score line folded forwards.  You do want to make sure that your paper has a front and back that do coordinate.

Cut a piece of card stock to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  I actually did end up making that 4 1/8.  Glue the flap to this paper making the back of the card.  Hint:  Line the backing to the outer edges of the card front.  Then add glue under the flap and adhere.  If you want to hide a little of that flap, you can cut another piece of card stock the same size and adhere to the back of the card.  For that reason I did not use the Thick Basic White.

6 x 6 DSP Fun Fold  Glorious Gingham DSP  Thoughtful Expressions dies  Adhesive Backed Hearts and Flowers  Simply Zinnia dies  Close Up  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

For the front of the card, you still have the folded front flap.  Take a strip of Basic White card stock.  I used one of those strips left over when cutting card insides.  Glue so that a little of the white shows beyond the flap.  Now, add the strip of designer paper cut off at the beginning.  Now you can glue down the fancied up flap or you can use dimensionals to make it stand out.  I used dimensionals.  

For the front, use the Thoughtful Expressions dies.  Did you realize that these dies are retiring?  I'm sooooo sad.  As an update, the Thoughtful Expressions dies are no longer available.  Cut from Basic White.  Use the Simply Zinnia dies to cut a zinnia bud for the pannel.  I used Parakeet Party and Balmy Blue.  I had a sponge dauber on my table with Blueberry Bushel ink on it.  I added a little of that color to the bud.  The sentiment is from the Garden Meadow stamp set in the Online Exclusives.

The Adhesive Backed Hearts & Flowers were added for embellishments.  They are retiring.

So this is the inside of the card.  Don't you love how the designer paper is showing!  Add another zinnia bud.

6 x 6 DSP Fun Fold  Subtles DSP  Thoughtful Expressions dies  Simply Zinnia dies  Adhesive Backed Hearts and Flowers  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

For this card, I used paper from the Subtles 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  This time I added in a Basic White strip cut using the Basic Borders dies (retiring).  I also added an additional strip of white on the outside of the flap for a little more definition.

The front is pretty much the same as the first card.  I did cut a frame from Pool Party card stock using the Thoughtful Expressions dies.

So here are both of the cards.  I had so much playing around with this layout.  On Saturday, I'll have a post with three more samples!  You are going to want to see what I have in store!  Thanks for joining me and I hope to see you next time.

I almost forgot to add the link for Jacque Williams video.  Go here.

Before I go, let me remind you that many items will be going away.  I think you can go to the online store and do a search for retiring soon.  There should be lots of products to come up.  Beginning April 9th a sale on selected items will begin.  We are getting close.  Warning:  Some items will disappear before the sale begins.  If you really want it, you might consider going ahead and getting it.  I don't want you to be disappointed.

Flowering Zinnias Designer Series Paper. I Can't Stop! And It's an Easy Fun Fold!

OMG!  The Flowering Zinnias Designer Series Paper is so pretty!  I can't stop using it, and I don't want too!  My head has so many ideas!

Simply zinnias easy fun fold  Zinnia 3D EF  Simply Zinnias stamp set  Adhesive Backed Shiny Sequins  Easy Card  JO Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I love the pop of color on this mostly white card.  It makes me happy!

The base of this card is Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

Cut a piece of Basic White that is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Run it through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Zinnia 3D Embossing Folder.  Make sure that you place the card stock so that the flowers will be vertical.  I cut two strips from this at 1 inch.  Save the rest for another project.  Glue the strips one on each side of the base.  Make sure that you turn these side pieces so that they are both either embossed or debossed.  Leave the tiny space the same at the top, bottom, and sides.

This is a fun fold.  Cut a piece of Basic White that is 2 1/2 x 11.  Fold at 5 1/2.  There is a piece of the designer paper made specifically for card fronts.  It has half of the design on one side with a little white space and then the other half of the paper has the same design. Cut the length of the paper at 2 3/8 x 5 3/8.  Glue this paper to the front of the card.  Glue the card to the center of the base.  This will cover the seam of the side pieces.  I use Grid Paper to make sure all is centered and straight.  Add this card even with the top OR you can add it even with the top of the side pieces.  You might need to trim along with bottom to make everything even.

The saying is from the Simply Zinnias stamp set.  Stamp on a 1/2 inch strip of Basic White in Melon Mambo.  Trim the sides.  Glue the saying on the small card only.  It will extend beyond the card on both sides.

Embellish with the Adhesive-Backed Shiny Sequins.

I left the inside of the card blank except for one of those gorgeous flowers in the Flowering Zinnias Designer Series Paper.

MAGNOLIA MOOD BUNDLE (ENGLISH)

This product is #163507, $54.75.

If you are from the south, you probably know and love the magnolia.  They are beautiful and smell great!  My neighbor had one right next to a brick wall between our properties.  I loved it since part of the tree came over to me.  They cut it down and I really miss it.

This card has a base of Soft Sea Foam 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.  Use the largest stamp to stamp around the outside of the card all the way around in Soft Sea Foam ink.  It's a pretty tone on tone look.

The Petal Pink panel is 3 x 4.

The Basic White panels show off another one of the new Online Exclusives, the Fun Patterns Embossing Folders.  This product has two different embossing folders that can fit in the Mini Cut & Emboss machine. #163790, $9.

FUN PATTERNS EMBOSSING FOLDERS

Put a piece of Basic White around 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 into the embossing folder.  Now cut to 3 7/8.  Cut into 3 strips of 1 1/4.  I tried to keep my strips in order.  Glue each end and then you can even out in the middle.

Add this whole panel with dimensionals.

Stamp the small flower and the seed pod in Memento Black on Basic White.  Color with the Petal Pink Combo Pack, the Soft Sea Foam Combos and the Light Old Olive Blend.  Cut out with the Magnolia Mood dies.  Glue to the panel.

The saying is from the Magnolia Mood stamp set.  Stamp in Old Olive and cut around the saying.  Glue to the panel.

The inside of the card is all from the Magnolia Mood set.  I stamped, colored, and cut the seed pod because I had an extra one on my table.  You can do this directly to the inside white.
