How to Let the Magic of Your'e A Peach Designer Paper Design Your Next Card

Today we're again exploring How to Let the Magic of You're a Peach Designer Paper Design Your Next Card! Tuesday we worked the magic of Sweet Symmetry DSP--if you missed it check it out here https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2021/07/how-to-let-the-magic-of-in-symmetry-designer-paper-design-your-next-card.html

Today's DSP is You're a Peach

155686

I selected near solid design (has dots), one medium print, and one coordinating small print---they all share Flirty Falmingo with a sprinkling of Old Olive.  This points to a card base of Flirty (with layer of white) and Old Olive with Flirty Flamingo inks for the stamping. See how easy card design is when you start with dsp? 

Here's today's creation:

Sweet as a Peach

This design can be utilized for any number of designer papers that have primarily small designs---as with our Tuesday design the larger patterns won't work as well with this because of the small rectangles being used. 

Plus this designer paper is also on sale until 8-2-21--order yours while it's on sale!

Today we're creating Another Quick  Easy card using Sale-a-bration set Island Vibes.  If you missed our super card on Tuesday you can check it out here: https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2022/01/create-quick-cards-with-sale-a-bration-island-vibes.html.

Here's today's card

Leaves

Again, I nabbed one of the notecards and envelopes in Basic White for my base--that eliminates creating the base from scratch and the notecards come with matching envelopes (they come in white an vanilla--it's always a good idea to keep a pack of both on hand in your stamping staples.

This time I ran the notecard front through the Tasteful Textures embossing folder--just adding this bit of pizzazz to the card front enhances the eye appeal dramatically.

The tropical leaves are all one single stamp! That's right--a single stamp and a Shaded Spruce ink pad gives you all that luscious greenery. Then use one of the perfect greetings in a pop of color like Poppy Parade and your basic card is done. Of course adding 3 Champagne Rhinestones strategically placed in a rough triangle and the card ratchets up to pretty wonderful instead of just adequate.

I'll give you the step by step directions for today's card followed by the supply list so you can order your supplies today.

Directions:

1. Place the notecard front in the Tasteful Textures embossing folder, run through die cut machine.

Create Quick cards with Sale-a-bration Island Vibes

 

 

Today we're going to learn how to Create Quick cards with Sale-a-bration Island Vibes stamp set! This is one of the free stamp sets you can earn when you purchase product for $50 during Jan-Feb Sale-a-bration event....here's a look at the set..

158096 island vibes

We'll also be using a sentiment from the Special Moment stamp set which is another Sale-a-bration Freebie!

Here's the quick card for today

Plantand a bit closer ....

Plant cu

As I've mentioned in previous posts, I often find myself in need of a card but little time--so one of my solutions is to grab one of the notecards and envelopes (they come in Basic White and Very Vanilla). They come precut, scored and ready to go--this eliminates the need for preparing your base.

Today's card is simply adding 2 quick layers to the base white notecard and adding a single stamp, greeting and embellishments...in less that 5 minutes your card is ready to go.

The plant stamp that I used looks better in 2 colors--so I nabbed my Stampin'Write markers and applied the ink directly to the rubber stamp--that way we can get 2 great colors with just one stamp.

You'll find that the Spccial Moments stamp set has all those verses that you use consistently--this time I needed a thank you card and this greeting was fresh and perfect for my purpose.

I then just added 3 of our new Adhesive backed hexagons to coordinate with the green plant and they simply added the bit of extra that pushes a card into extra special instead of just pretty.

I'll give you the step by step directions for today's card followed by the supply list so you can order your supplies today. 

Remember:

*Jan-Feb is Sale-a-bration--for each $50 in product that you purchase you can select a free product from the Sale-a-bration brochure!

*if you use this month's host code (VXJM3R2D) you can earn $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for every $50 in product that you order (excludes shipping & tax).

Directions:

1. Cut Shaded Spruce 3 X 4 1/2; adhere to notecard front with liquid glue.

2. Cut Basic White 2 7/8 X 4 3/8

    *Stamp Thanks for Brightening up my day! (Special Moments # 158081 Sale-a-bration) in black in (e.g. Memento)

    *On the plant stamp (Island Vibes # 198096 Sale-a-bration) using the side of the brush end of the Stampin'Write markers color the stamp itself with Just Jade and Cinnamon Cider--stamp above greeting.

    *Adhere this layer to Spruce layer with liquid glue.

3. Adhere 1 large, 1 medium, and 1 small Adhesive backed Hexagons (#158148) around plant--see photo for placement.

Creating another Fast & Easy Thank You Card

Today we're Creating Another Fast & East Thank You Card! Tuesday we created a thank you card that was super fast and easy---if you missed it check it out here https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2021/12/fast-easy-thank-you-with-expressions-in-ink.html

Today we're continuing another quick card using the same pack of designer paper (Expressions in Ink)...this set of papers is packed with so much beauty that each design is perfect for creating a super fast card with little or no enhancement.  There's an array of colors so just choose one that is your fav. Here's our card for today...

Mint

And a bit closer...

Mint 2For layering we selected one of the darker tones in the paper and then pulled out the gorgeous gold foil with a layer of that right underneath the designer paper. Since this design is busier than the one we used on Tuesday I found that stamping 'thanks' directly on the design was less prominent that I wanted. So I cut a small piece of Vellum about the same size as the 'thanks', stamped on the vellum and adhered that over the paper. The vellum masks a bit of the brilliance of the paper colors but yet blends in so that it almost appears not to be there.

I'll give you the step by step directions followed by the supply list so you can order your supplies today. 

Remember if you use this month's host code (HWWK9AFV) you can earn $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for every $50 in product that you order (excludes shipping & tax).

Directions:

1. Cut Mint Macaron cardstock 4 1/4 X 11, score long side at 5 1/2 (card base).

2. Cut Shaded Spruce cardstock 3 3/4 X 5; adhere to card front with liquid glue.

3. Cut Gold foil paper3 1/2 X 4 3/4; adhere to spruce layer with liquid glue.

4. Cut Designer paper 3 3/8 X 4 5/8; adhere to gold foil with liquid glue.

5. Cut Vellum cardstock 1 X 2 3/8; stamp 'thanks' in Memento ink--be sure to let this dry well before handling. Ink on vellum does not dry as quickly as other papers. You can speed this up by heating with your Heat Tool on low setting. Adhere this to card front by placing a glue dot under the bottom of the "h" and under the body of the "k"--this is done to hide the glue dot from showing through the vellum. We're placing the glue dot under a portion that is less likely to be noticed.

A Fastest-er Awesome Christmas Card

Today I'll show you A Fastest-er Awesome Christmas Card. Tuesday we did the Fastest Christmas Card--if you missed it--check it out here https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2021/12/fastest-christmas-cards-using-wonderful-snowflakes.html.

Well after giving it some thought I discovered and even faster Christmas card using the Wonderful Snowflakes...thus we have the 'Fastest-er' card...check it out

Cherry 1

And a little closer look...

Cherry cu

This little beauty uses the snowflakes just as they are--white and they contrast quite well on the Cherry piece of designer series paper (Sweet Stockings).  When displaying a completely white intricate embellishment (especially when it's to be a focal point) you look for a medium to dark background with little or no design. The pattern picked here is relatively dark Cherry Cobbler and it has a slight diagonal stitching design but not too bold. This background takes nothing away from the gorgeous snowflake in white.

Adding a couple of large opals to the center of the snowflakes gives them an addeitional sparkle of interest. Stamping the Merry in the same Cherry color does not draw the attention away from the snowflakes.

This lovely design can be accomplished in much less than 10 minutes and you can whip out 12 of these (2 sheets of designer paper) in about 20 minutes...who would guess?

I'll give you the step by step directions followed by the supply list so you can order your supplies today. 

Remember if you use this month's host code (HWWK9AFV) you can earn $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for every $50 in product that you order (excludes shipping & tax).

Directions:

1. Cut Cherry Cobbler cardstock 4 1/4 X 11, score long side at 5 1/2 (card base).

2. Cut Basic White cardstock 5 X 3 3/4; adhere to card front with liquid glue.

3. Cut Designer paper 3 5/8 X 4 7/8 (Sweet Stockings); adhere to white layer with liquid glue.

4. Adhere 2 Wonderful Snowflakes using glue dots; adhere a large opal to the center of each. 

5. Cut 1/2 X 1 1/2 Basic White cardstock; stamp Merry (Time of Gift-giving stamp set) in Cherry Cobbler ink; adhere to card front with dimensionals.
