How to Make a Fuzzy Card

Today I'll show you How to Make a Fuzzy Card! If you enjoy texture in your cards--this is the card for you! Take a look...

Felt card

You can almost see the "fuzziness," right?  That's the Festive Felt from the new August-December Mini Catalog (hereafter called the Holiday mini). There are four sheets in a pack (red, green, white, expresso) and the sheets are 6 X 12 which gives you tons of material to play with.

These felt sheets cut beautifully with the open dies on the new Die Cut & Emboss Machine (coming September 1st --they cut as well on the old machines). I used the Freezin' Friends for this card---even those tiny white stars were die cut..isn't that amazing?

And then the brilliant red "Merry" was cut from that luscious Red Velvet paper. It also cuts extremely well with the dies on the new machine (it works on the old cutting machine too)!

I'll give you the simple steps to create the card. Following the directions you'll find the supply list--use that to order what you'll need to create this card.

If you place an online order using this month's Host Code (VX3RSCVK) you'll receive $5 in Stampin'Up! product (selected by me) for each $50 in product that you purchase. Also, the month of August is Bonus Coupon cash in month! Those coupons you earned in July can be spent between August 4 and 31st.

Directions:

1. Cut 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 Night of Navy cardstock, score long side at 4 1/4 (card base).

2. Cut 2 1/2 X 5 1/2 white felt (Festive Felt) and cut diagonally from one corner to the opposite corner on the other side with the landscape die (Freezin' Friends dies).

Snowbank3. Lay one layer down with the wide side to the left; turn the other piece to the other side so the wide end is on the  righthand side.

Corss

Adhere these two pieces in this position on the lower front of the card base with liquid glue.

4. Cut 2 large and 3 small trees (Freezin' Friends dies) from the green felt; adhere these over the snow banks with liquid glue. Adhere 3 large red resin dots  to each tree (All the Trimmings elements)--these are self adhesive.

5. Cut 9 tiny stars from the white felt; adhere these to the "sky" with tiny dots of liquid glue.

6. Cut Merry (Word Wishes dies) from Red Velvet paper and adhere this to the snowbank with liquid glue.

Your card is ready for sending (and touching--it's a real touchable card)!

A Pop Up Rainbow of Colors

Today we're creating a really fun card with a Pop Up Rainbow of Colors. It's a very simple design but the Wow factor is that awesome pop up of all the elements on the card front!

Happy day w balloons

Here's a side view so you can really see how terrific that looks all popped up:

Happy day w balloons side view

The rainbow of colors on both the words and the balloons is from the new Rainbow Glimmer paper...the colors range from deep red to deep purple...it's a graduation of colors each flowing into the next one that gives this fantastic rainbow--you can select any combo of colors you want simply by placing your die in the color zone that you want to capture.

The Pup Up is accomplished with the new Foam Adhesive Sheets...it's like having a sheet that is one big dimensional. Working with it is just the same as working with the regular dimensionals except that you want to adhere the cardstock to the sheet before putting it through the die cut machine--this way you cut the adhesive foam at the same time you are cutting the cardstock (in this case we're using glimmer paper).

I'll give you the simple steps to follow below as well as how to create the card. Following the directions you'll find the supply list--use that to order what you'll need to create this card.

If you place an online order using this month's Host Code (TA9QZXJ3) you'll receive $5 in Stampin'Up! product (selected by me) for each $50 in product that you purchase. Also, the month of July is Bonus Days with Stampin'Up! and you'll receive a $5 coupon via email from SU for each $50 in product that you purchase.

Directions:

1. Cut Thick Whisper White cardstock 4 1/4 X 11, score long side at 5 1/2 (card base).

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

3. Cut Whisper White cardstock 4 7/8 X 3 5/8; run through Parisian Flourish folder, adhere to cabana layer with liquid glue.

4. Cut adhesive sheet to approximate die size (Day from Word Wishes)

Cut sheet to die size

5. Cut a piece of Rainbow Glimmer paper the size of the adhesive piece

Adhere glimmer to sheet

6. Remove backing from adheseive sheet and adhere Glimmer paper. Place die over glimmer paper and run through die cut machine.

Die cut

7. Check backing to assure good cut through the layers; remove the backing and ahere to card front.

8. Repeat these steps for Birthday and for the Balloons (Happy Dies)

9. Cut 2 "strings" from the Happy dies fron Coastal Cabana cardstock; add one long string beside the Happy and cut the second balloon string to meet the first one. Adhere these strings with liquid glue.

Simple Quick Easy DIY Lovely You Notecard

Today I'm going to share with you a Simple Quick Easy DiY Lovely You notecard.  I"m always on the lookout for cards that are relatively quick and easy because I'm usually in a rush when my stash is low and I need a card. The base of this one is the Notecards and Envelopes (in Whisper White)....this way we don't have to worry about cutting the base (already to go for you) or finding an envelope--the envelope comes in the pack. Very economical--a pack of 20 is only$7.

Here's our card:

Notecard #2

The background for the flower is created with two punches---so you won't need to go to your die stash and the embossing folder is one of the new ones (Old World Paper 3D)---totally awesome touch for this card.

Notice the flower is a single stamp--so how did we get the 2-color image? We used the Stampin'Write markers to color directly on the rubber stamp to get the two tone effect.

This little stamp set is very versatile...if you remember we used this same set to create a notecard last Friday...check it out here

147 Stampin'Up! Ink Colors

147150G

Have you seen all of the 147 Stampin'Up! Ink Colors?  Fifteen of them are new this year in the annual catalog (Bumblebee, Just Jade, Cinnamon Cider, Moonlight Mist, and Magenta Madness)!

With that many colors you'll never run out of just the right shade!

You are probably thinking right now--I've only seen 49* of them in the catalog--where are the rest? *Remember Purple Posey will not be returning....but this tip will help you out with this color.

Did you know that in one ink pad you have 3 different "colors." For example, here's Granny Apple Green ink

GrannyHow did I get 3 colors from one pad...ink up your stamp well and stamp it 3 times without re-inking...you'll have 3 different colors.

It's truly awesome--for example, when you are trying to create a bouquet of flowers with Poppy Parade and you can't find just exactly the light and medium colors that coordinate well with the Poppy ink.... now, you can create the entire bouquet using just one ink pad. Just stamp the flower inked up in Poppy and then stamped twice more without re-inking!

Flowers

See how awesome this can be---you can have 3 coordinating colors for all 49 Stampin'Up! ink pads...here are a few more samples

GrapeNote the 3rd color here in Gorgeous Grape--wouldn't this be a great substitute for Purple Posey?  And, it coordinates very well with the Gorgeous Grape and the 2nd color too!

BermudaAs you are creating, each time you use a color create one of these sample swatches--2 1/2 X 5 1/2 on Whisper White cardstock (size depends on the stamp you are using), punch a hole at the top and pop them on a key ring--when you need a color in a shade you may not have in the ink pad itself--see if one of the 2nd or 3rd stampings  (without reinking) will do the trick!

You may want to organize them on rings designated as Brights, Regals, Neutrals, Subtles, and In Colors or you may organize them according to colors---reds, yellows, greens, blues, purples, browns, etc.  Whatever works best for the way you create! Just keep it simple and you'll have 147 colors swatches in no time.

Let me know if this tip was helpful--add a comment, share with your friends, sign up for my Newsletters or email me and let me know!


The Last in the series of Ornate Garden Projects.

Today we'll play with The Last in the Series of Ornate Garden Projects.

Dsp strips

Look closely at the DSP and you can see that awesome gold foil embedded in the Olive paper...just gorgeous!  And you can use any verse that you need--in fact, sometimes you just want to cut the paper for the verse and have it ready for when you need a specific verse and stamp it then.

I'll give you the simple directions below followed by the Supply list so you can order your supplies for this card.

Remember:

*You only have 7 days left to order the products from the Ornate Garden set of products--you can order the products individually, as bundles, or as the entire suite of products.
