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!

A Simple Stunning Card Using Stampin'Up! Cottage Wreaths & Country Wreaths Dies

Today we're creating A Simple Stunning Card Using Stampin'Up! Cottage Wreaths & Country Wreath Dies. I haven't played with this set much so far...so you can image what fun I've had when I discovered the layering look of the wreath dies....here's today's card....

Cherry card

Here's a closer look at the wreath...

Cherry card cuThe wreath is layered over the Soft Seafoam Glimmer paper--unfortunately you can't get the full effect of the glimmer but imagine it on a sparkly bed....stunning!

We began with a Cherry Cobbler card base and covered that with cardstock put through the Quatrefoil embossing folder..that design is such a lovely background for a holiday creatuib.

Then we layered the Seafoam Glimmer "boards" and hung the wreath.

The wreath is two layers---the first is the more solid die using Shaded Spruce. Layered over that is the less dense wreath die in Mint Macaron--this color with the blue tones accents the Shaded Spruce green very well.

The bow die in this set is a great addition to the top and then we sparkled up the wreath with Red Rhinestones. And there you have it---simple & stunning.

But I didn't want to stop playing with these dies so I made another card using White as the background---and here's the result....

Card on whiteAnd we could go on trying out new colors...do that and let me see your results.

Stop back by Thursday and see a special little creation you won't want to miss!

2. Cut Cherry Cobbler 4 1/8 X 5 3/8, put through Quatrefoil embossing folder; adhere to card front.

3. Cut Soft Seafoam glimmer paper (Glimmer Paper) 3/4 X 3 1/2; adhere to card front horizontally to appear like wooden boards.

A Simple Trick to Creating with Stampin'Up! Sweet Candy Cane Bundle wtihout Stamping...

Today I"ll show you A Simple Trick to Creating with Stampin'Up! Sweet Candy Cane Bundle without Stamping the candy cane!!! About this time of year I'm looking for all the shortcuts I can find because I see Christmas looming quickly in our future...so here's the "tricky card"....

Card2a bit of a different angle...

Cardand a close up of the candy cane.

Card cu

After seeing the card can you tell what the secret is to "no stamping?" Yes, we simply die cut the top white layer over the striped designer series paper (2nd layer).  Pretty easy, right? The result is an awesome perfect cane without having to stamp and then die cut! 

We added some sparkle with the greenery (from Mistletoe Magic dies) and the red rhinestones above the verse on the scalloped white circle.  

The small "stripey" look of the gingham embossing folder seemed perfect to coordinate with the stripe in the designer paper for our candy cane!

So what's better than a lovely card that is so simple to create and looks like a million bucks? Well, stop back by on Friday (because Thursday you'll be eating turkey) and take a look at the awesome gift tag we created with this set!

The greeting is from the new Frames & Festive stamp set that is part of the Fitting Florets Collection...this set will not be transitioning to the new spring mini catalog--so nab it now!

The verse is stamped in Versamark & embossed with silver powder--this adds shine as well as coordinates the the label background of silver foil.

Creating with Stampin'Up! New Products Flitting Florets Stamps & Dies

Today we're Creating with Stampin'Up! New Products Flitting Florets Stamps & Dies. This new collection brings us some of the oval dies we've been dieing to get back! The fun part is that the "plain" ovals are the "trash" that is created when we use the frame dies--so we're actually getting 2 from 1 die.

DEMO_MKTL_SQR_NA_1022_OOPQ4_PREORDER

Here is today's creation

White

a bit closer

White cu

The trick to this card is that we're using the frame die twice--the first cut is through the designer paper and the Evergreen cardstock. This opens the window to the white cardstock (card base). Then we use the frame die again with black cardstock---this give us the black frame to insert in the opening from the first use of the frame  die.

Those gorgeous gold swirl embellishments add such a classy element to this card.

One other small trick we used for this card is the double leaf stamp--it is actually stamped twice under the "celebrate."  This then appears to be a semicircle under the greeting.

There is a full collection of products-- a bundle, an additional stamp set, designer paper and embellishments---the bundle is carrying over into the spring mini---awesome! However, the designer paper, the holiday stamp set and the embellishments are only available during November & December!

Creating Positive Images with Stampin'Up! Ranunculus Leaf Dies!

Today we're Creating Positive Images with Stampin'Up! Ranunculus Leaf Dies! Tuesday we created negative images using these dies...if you missed it..check it out here https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2022/10/creating-negative-images-with-stampinup-ranunculus-leaf-dies.html

Positive cardCloser...

Positive cu

capturing Wink of Stella twinkle...

Positive - cu sparkle

We used our alcohol Blends to create the graduated blended colors for each leaf. The alcohol allows you to lay down a color, add a bit of contrasting color & then blend it so you get these beautiful imitations of nature.  It's so hard to capture the 'wink' but it really takes the design up a notch on the beauty scale!

The Vannilla/gold ribbon adds pizzazz as a pretty edging.

We have load of texture with Timeworn Type under the leavesand Quatrefoil on the right side..when using a neutral card base you can jazz it up with lots of texture.

The Champagne Rhinestones ratchet up the greeting label--the color of these embellishments blends nicely with an array of color paired with these autumn colors they lean toward a golden hue.

Stop back by next Tuesday --see what we're creating!

I'll give you full directions below followed by the supply list to order your supplies.

Remember: If you use this month's host code (SVADB3GK) you can earn $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for every $50 in product that you order (excludes shipping & tax).

Creating Negative Images with Stampin'Up! Ranunculus Leaf Dies!

Today we're Creating Negative Images with Stampin'Up!

Negative image card

Now you can see we used the leaf die on the top layer and the die cut has been removed (BTW--keep those die cuts for Thursdays creation)...what you have now is the negative image of the leaf.

We've used blending brushes on the middle layer to create that luscious blending of autumn colors from Cajun Craza through Pumpkin Pie and ending in Daffodil delight.
