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!

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...

Pink cu

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.

Remember: If you use this month's host code (29WVCFRT) you can earn $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for every $50 in product that you order (excludes shipping & tax).

Directions:

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

2. Cut pink watercolor wash (Awash in Beauty DSP) 4 X 5 1/4; adhere to card base with glue.

3. From Basic Black die cut the corner floral die; adhere to lower left corner with glue.

4. Add 1 large & 2 small Polished Pink 21-23 In Color Opal Rounds--see photo.

5. Stamp 'Just a Note' (Go To Greetings) in Memento  ink across the top

This is today's design...

Double die

and a bit closer..

Double die cuAs you can see, this beauty simply uses the die two times...once in the lower right corner and then again in the upper left corner. This leaves a diagonal center area just perfect for about any greeting you want to use.

This makes the design one of those you can create a stack then just add the greeting when you need the card.

As we mentioned Tuesday, the color combo under the die cuts can be any colors you enjoy--instead of using the Hues of Happiness designer paper you can create your own blend of colors with the Blending Brushes and your favorite inks! Imagine Fresh Freesia and Pacific Point... or Coastal Cabana and Highland Heather...and the combos go on and on.

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

A Beautiful Design Using Stampin'Up! Split Card Dies and Hand-penned Bundle

Today I'll show you how to create A Beautiful Design Using Stampin'Up! Split Card Dies and Hand-Penned Bundle. The new die set, Split Card Textures, contains 2 stunning corner designs cutting through the top layer of cardstock revealing the underlayer...this gives  unlimited combinations & choices to make.

Here's the die set.

Capture

Today we're using the 'plaid' style...

Handpenneda closer look at the focal point

Handpenned cu

The color wash under the die cut is from the gorgeous  Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper. We've been so entranced with the beautiful rose designs in this set that we almost miss the beauty on the 'other' side.  We use this blend of color to select the flower colors. Since our base is white you can select any of the other fantastic blends for more variety.

The die simply sits in the corner of the top layer & after running through the die machine it's a breeze to flip out the waste pieces.

We added a bit more interest by then putting the die cut layer through the Timeworn Type embossing folder--it adding a touch of texture but staying in the background.

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

Stop back Thursday and we'll be using the other die--one of the simplest (and most beautiful) cards you'll ever create!

TEXTURE CHIC MEMORIES & MORE CARDS & ENVELOPES

Here's today's fun creation... Shells last

 

A closer look...

Last cuCan you guess what my latest favorite specialty paper might be? Yep, the Distressed Gold Specialty--it's fairly thin like a designer paper so it die cuts like a charm--and the there's a bit of texture to it by touch and visually. I cut the distressed grid from this paper as well as the Petal Pink shell overlay....absolutely stunning! 

The stamped shells in this card are 2-step stamps--for the upper right shell we used pool party for the base shell & Coastal Cabana for the overlay...this gives you the visual depth to the shell. For the lower right shell I used Crumb Cake for the base shell &Soft Suede for the overlay.

Because the base card is ready to go you can achieve this design in about 15 minutes---and don't we all have times when we need a super card but we have little time. Keep a pack of these ready to go cards and envelopes.

Using Faux Spotlighting Technique with Stampin'Up! Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper

Today we're going to create Using Faux Spotlighting Technique with Stampin'Up! Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper. Tuesday we used the traditional 'spotlighting' technique with this new designer paper...if you missed it check it out here..https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2022/05/beautiful-designs-with-the-new-stampinup-perfectly-penciled-designer-series-paper.html

The traditional technique uses a well defined area to "spotlight" like the circle used on Tuesday's card. The Faux sp0tlighting uses a less well defined "spot" as we did in today's card...we chose one image as our "spotlight" and that becomes the focal point for coloring...here's today's card...

Cluster

a bit closer...

Cluster cuNotice the shading of the color on the flowers---that's all accomplished with the designer paper.  After coloring the selected image--Iconsidered including the small cluster of flowers on the right side ...I can't decide--include?  What do you think? Should I use Dark Real Red for those, another color, or leave them as they are? 

This gorgeous set of papers offers you so many choices and each one is totally lovely...as I mentioned Tuesday--the fronts of the papers are florals and leaves and the back sides are geometrics. This allows the possibility of mixing the florals and geometrics for another set of beautiful cards....maybe I'll try that n

Happily the Brushed Brass Butterflies carried over from the spring mini catalog to the new Annual catalog. (BTW if you don't have a demonstrator and have not yet received a new catalog--contact me and we'll get one to you..sandihartka@sandilovesstamping.com).

The Happy Birthday greeting is from the middle sized verses in Go To Greetings (#158763)--a new set in the catalog this year designed to give you 4 of the most frequently used greetings in 3 different sizes and fonts (plus an additional Hello). You'll want to have this in your greetings arsenal.

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

Remember: If you use this month's host code (99ZW7X3Q) you can earn $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for every $50 in product that you order (excludes shipping & tax).

Beautiful Designs with the New Stampin'Up! Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper

Today we're creating Beautiful Designs with the New Stampin'Up! Perfectly Penciled Designer Series PaperThe new Stampin'Up! annual catalog is now active & we can indulge our cravings for all those luscious new products...one of those is a beautiful black & white designer paper---Perfectly Penciled.. twelve stunning florals on one side & geometrics on the other...mix them or match or just play with one of them which we are doing today with the spotlighting technique.

Today's card uses the "spotlight" technique--it's quite easy to do but results in a simply striking image....

Cirble a little closer look at the spotlighted area...

Circle cu

We've added a fun element by increasing the focus by surrounding the spotlight with vellum...this softens the black and white images but increases the focus of the spotlighted image.

Using Real Red and Shaded Spruce with black and white is one of my favorite combinations--the red and green are a beautifully elegant contrast to the black & white.

Check out that fabulous script--"Just a Note?"  Script always lends a fancy touch to the card. This image is from the Go To Greetings Set (Yes, I'm prejudiced--it's my million dollars set--& this is the last time I'll tell you that!). The set has 4 frequently used images in 3 different sizes so that you can always "go to" this set and find a greeting you can use.

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

    *Add 3 large rhinestones to the center of 3 of the flowers within the circle.
    *Adhere the vellum to the designer paper with 4 glue dots--try to place the glue dots in an area that is masked with the images so the glue dots don't attract attention.

5. Cut Basic White cardstock 1 X 3 1/8; stamp "Just a Note" in Memento ink; adhere to card front with dimensionals--see photo for placement. Add 3 small rhinestones to the greeting.

More Pretty Fun Designs with Stampin'Up! New In Colors & a New Stamp Set

Today we're going to create More Pretty Fun Designs with Stampin'Up! New In Colors & a New Stamp Set.  Tuesday we played with the cardstock and metallic ribbon...if you missed it...check it out here... https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2022/05/beautiful-creations-with-stampinup-new-in-colors.html

Today we're designing with the new In Color inks, glimmer paper and twine. This time we're using Basic White to create a clean blank slate so that our inks will be our focus on a pure background. Using the Basic White notecards as the basis we added a mini layer of the coordinating color and topped that with the plain white canvas on which to "paint" with our new inks.

The silhouette stamp is from the Fresh Cut Flowers set--it's a new one and quite lovely. The verse is from the Go To Greetings set---I have a bit of prejudice with this set! I helped design this one with Stampin'Up! Design Team for my $1million dollar stamp set! I love it and I hope you will too!

So onto the white clean slate we stamped the floral silhouette, added a cute greeting that just fits perfectly, and added a glimmer butterfly in the same In Color.

Sweet Sorbet...

Beautiful Creations with Stampin'Up! New In Colors

Today we're going to make Beautiful Creations with Stampin'Up! New In Colors.When the new Stampin'Up! In colors are released I love to play with them all to enjoy having new colors with which to create. One of the things I do is create a card using the same design but with each of the new colors. So that's what we're creating today! One single design but each card features one of the new colors....

Sweet Sorbet...

Sweet

Orchid Oasis...

Orchid

Parakeet Party...

Parakeey

Starry Night...

Starry night

Tahitian Tide...

Tahi

OK, it's tough but which one is your favorite?  I haven't been able to settle on just one yet so I need to play a bit more

We are contrasting the colors with Basic White which leaves us to totally enjoy each color alone. We've added the matching In Color  Woven Metallic Ribbon.

The feature die cut is from the stunning Artistic Die set carried over from the 2021-22 annual catalog. I used this not because we have nothing new that is equally stunning but because I can't get to those yet!! I will definitely be exploring the new dies just as soon as I can get my hands on them.

The background embossing folder is the Timeworn Type that is also carried over from the 2021 holiday mini catalog--this is a subtle but effective way to add a bit of texture to the background without having it overpower the focal point. Backgrounds can be a bit tricky sometimes--they can be very lovely and overpower your main focus.

Would you like to own all the new In Colors (ink, refill, cardstock, markers, Blends, ribbon, dots, designer paper and glimmer paper) and not go broke AND get a free gift that is essentially equivalent to a 5% discount?  It's called the In Color Club...all the details are in this attached brochure....
