Creating a Super Quick & Simple Card with Stampin'Up! New Enchanted Details Dies

Today we're Creating a Super Quick & Simple Card with Stampin'Up! New Enchanted Details Dies. This set of fun and "enchanting" dies can almost be missed since they are only shown in the back of the new annual catalog along with other dies. They don't coordinate with a stamp set so are not captured in a bundle or bundle index. But....they are not to be missed! They are quite fun, easy to work with and provide an "enchanting" focal point for a quick card ...it's another die to die for!

Here's today's card...

Pink

and a slightly closer view...

First we have a beautiful water color wash background that is, yes, Designer Series Paper--isn't that luscious---it appears that we've done a water color swish with our water painter & ink refill...but no, it's the stunning Awash in Color Designer Series Paper.  The sheet appears to have a watercolor paper texture--but that's just part of the design captured in this sheet. There are other beautiful sheets in this set.

Then we die cut the corner image from black cardstock that provides that sharp contrast in color. This shows every stunning detail of that die.

We added 3 2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds in Polished Pink so that we didn't draw attention away from the die but to add a bit of pizzazz to the design.

Then finally we used the largest "Just a Note" greeting from the Go To Greetings set--but any of those large greetings would work nicely on this card.

Definitely stop back by Thursday and check out the second card we've created using this die set.

I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.

Creating Another Cute Tag with Stampin'Up! New Designer Tag Dies

Today we're Creating Another Cute Tag with Stampin'up! New Designer Tag Dies. Tuesday we used the largest die and the rose die cut--if you missed it check it out here https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2022/06/creating-an-awesome-tag-with-stampinups-new-designer-tags-dies.html

This tag is featuring the two layering dies in this super set. Here's the result...

Granny

And a bit closer look:

Granny cu

Stampin'Up! made this quite easy for us---the two dies are exactly the same shape except the overlay is just slightly smaller so that we can highlight the fancy design in the overly by using a contrasting or (as in this case) a bit darker color to really see that pretty design.

The Brilliant Wings butterfly dies continue drawing me into their beauty--I love them so I used the small one as our focal point in gold foil. Then I added 3 of the new Flower Trinkets to float around the butterfly in a sort of triangle.

I'm finding the new 2022-2024 In Color Metallic ribbons are quite useful...the are easy to work with the the colors are brilliant and stunning with that metallic shine...so we added the tie in Parakeet Party.

This base tag is lovely on its own--but you can decorate it with most any elements you enjoy--it's great to have a few of these in your ready-t0-go stash--then when you need a tag--grab it, personalize it and you're ready for any occasion!

I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.

Remember: If you use this month's host code (VWJEW9VK) you can earn $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for every $50 in product that you order (excludes shipping & tax).

Directions:

1. Die Cut middle size tag from Granny Apple Green cardstock

    *Die cut corresponding overlay from Parakeet Party cardstock.

    *Adhere these using very small dots of glue in the solid areas of the overlay

2. Die cut the small butterfly (Butterfly Brillliance dies) from gold foil; adhere this to tag using a glue dot.

3. Adhere 3 gold Flower Trinkets in a sort of triangle around the butterfly--see photo.

4. Cut approximately 12" Parakeet Party Metallic ribbon and loop through top tag hole.

Creating an Awesome Tag with Stampin'Up!'s New Designer Tags Dies

Today we're Creating an Awesome Tag with Stampin'Up!'s New Designer Tags Dies. These dies are sleepers because they are not associated with a stamp set or bundle--they are sleeping in the back on the catalog among all the dies and if you are not careful--you'll miss them!

But miss them you do NOT want to do--they are quick, easy and quite beautiful with minimal effort!

Here's today's tag...

Pink

and, a bit closer look...

Pink cu

This tag uses 2 of the dies in this set---first we used the largest die with the top and bottom slits---this provides a really pretty way to add some zing with the new Rose Gold White 5/8" ribbon--the slits allow the ribbon to enter from front to back at the top, travel down the back and out through the bottom slit.

The fancy top and bottom edges are quite pretty and drew my attention to the rose cut-out die...so I layered the die on top of the Polished Pink tag, die cut the rose and layered white cardstock on the back of the tag to highlight the beautiful design. I love sparkle so I winked (Wink of Stella) the white rose to add pizzazz.

Then to add a touch of romance I added three heart pearls--the heart shape is quite subtle but the pearls add that charm to complete the design.  Quick, easy, perfect!

Stop back by on Thursday to see another creation with these dies!

I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.

Remember: If you use this month's host code (VWJEW9VK) you can earn $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for every $50 in product that you order (excludes shipping & tax).

Directions:

1. Die cut the largest tag die from Polished Pink cardstock

    *Die cut the rose in the tag--position it to the left leaving space for the greeting

    *Stamp "Thinking of You" (Lovely & Lasting) in black in (Memento) in upper right corner

2. Cut Basic White cardstock 2 1/2 X 2 3/4; adhere to back side of tag with glue

3. Cut approximately 14" Rose Gold & White ribbon, fold in half and lead with the folded edge from front to back through bottom tag slit. Bring the folded edge through from back to front through top tag slit.

    *Cut approximately 8" Sweet Sorbet metallic ribbon; tie a bow  around the top rose ribbon loop.

Tall card

... a bit closer look...

Tall card close up

Inside is just as pretty...

Tall card inside

Using one of the plant stamps Debbie has created a lovely side border graduating in color depth from light to dark --Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sorbet, Real Red. This causes the eye to flow from top to bottom. She has used the Amazing Thanks dies to create the verse & by using the underlay die in white the Sweet Sorbet "thanks"  nearly leaps off the card--bright and beautiful.

She used the Splatters embossing folder (Stripes & Splatters embossing folders) to add that texture to this relaxed card & then added two sets of In Color Matte Dots to add some pizzazz to the upper right and lower left corners.

Before we go on we want to thank Debbie for her hard work and awesome designs that she's been sharing with us for the last few months! It's been great fun to work with her & we've enjoyed her creations.
