Peaceful Moments & Stitched So Sweetly

I love it when Stampin’ Up!® comes out with new dies that can be used in a Bundle or stand alone.  I especially love all the stitched dies we have been getting lately.  We have Stitched Rectangles, Stitched Shapes, Stitched Be Mine, Stitched Labels and more.  Now we have a new set called Stitched So Sweetly that pair perfectly so with many sentiments.  This set of dies is actually a bundle with So Sentimental, although I did not use that set for this card.  Instead I used Peaceful Moments.  All of these products are in the 2020 Mini Catalog.

When making this card, I decided I wanted to use my favorite colors together.  I love most of the Brights family but I especially love Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana together.  The other colors I used are Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody.  I love how bright and cheery they all are.

This card could have been pretty simple to make but I decided to step it up a bit.  I rounded the corners using the Detailed Trio Punch.  I also decided to stamp the sentiment twice.  I did it once in Memento Black ink and again in Bermuda Bay.  Then I cut out the word “happiness” and layered it over the black sentiment using Mini Dimensionals.  The Daffodil Delight circle was cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies and the Granny Apple Green and Whisper White shapes were cut out using the new Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I love how they all layer together.

Painted Poppies

I have to say, there are so many awesome products in the 2020 Spring Mini Catalog that I had a hard time deciding what to get.  I did know I definitely had to have the new products in the Peaceful Poppies Suite right away.  This Suite includes two stamp sets with two matching sets of dies, ribbon, Designer Series Paper, sequins and die cut printed accents.  Did you know you can order the entire suite with one item number?  Stampin’ Up!® has started doing this in their catalogs and it makes it so much easier to order everything you want.  The Peaceful Poppies Suite is featured on the catalog cover.  I love the colors used in these projects.  Another great thing SU started doing is listing the colors used on the main Suite page.

To make this card, I first stamped the flower from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Memento Ink and cut it out using the Painted Labels dies.  Then I cut out the two pieces of the leaves in Old Olive and Garden Green cardstock.  I cut out the square in Poppy Parade Ink using two nested Stitched Shapes dies.  I stamped the background poppies in Memento Black Ink and placed it behind the frame.  Then I layered everything together.

The other stamp set in this Suite is called Peaceful Moments. It is an all sentiment stamp set.   The matching dies are called Poppy Moments. I used a sentiment from this stamp set for my card.

Gather Together

Hello everyone.  It is time for another Stamp Off Challenge with Buffy, Jackie and myself.  I love our Stamp Off Challenges because sometimes they really are challenging!  Today is my favorite challenge to have.  It is a sketch challenge by Jackie.

Here is my card.

I decided to use a stamp set from the Stampin’ Up!® 2019 Holiday Catalog called Gather Together.  This stamp set has matching dies called Gathered Leaves and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.

The colors I used for this card are Pool Party and Pretty Peacock.  I stamped the leaf in Pretty Peacock ink onto a piece of Pool Party card stock and then cut it out using one of the dies.  Then I layered it on a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock I had cut out using the Stitched Shapes die set.  I layered two strips of Designer Series Paper called Come To Gather.  The sentiment is from the stamp set called Beauty & Joy.  This stamp set is also in the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  I stamped it in Pretty Peacock ink onto Pool Party cardstock and then cut it out using a die from Stitched Rectangles.

Now let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made with this sketch challenge.  I am sure their creations will be amazing!

Beautiful Friendship

Hello everyone.  Today’s BS & J Productions challenge is a color challenge.  I love color challenges!

I love Pretty Peacock  but never thought to put it with Mint Macaron and Blueing Bride but I love how they look together.  Here is my card:

To make this card I used the stamp set called Beautiful Friendship.  This set is in the Stampin’ Up!®  2019/2020 Annual Catalog.  This set is a DisInktive stamp set which is a patent pending stamp set that shows depth by having the images stamp lighter and darker in different places.  I love the Hydrangea image in this set (Hydrangeas are my favorite flower).  If you look at the image you can see how some of it stamps darker and some is lighter.

I first stamped the Hydrangea in Blushing Bride and then cut it out using the Stitched Shapes dies.  Then I ran a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock through my die cut and embossing machine using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink on a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock and cut that out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I stamped the leaves from the stamp set called Painted Harvest and punched them out using the Leaf Punch.  Lastly, I colored one of the hearts from the Heart Epoxy Droplets using my Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin Blends.  The Designer Series Paper is from the 6″ x 6″ Subtles Designer Series Paper packs.

Now, let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie made using these colors.

Stitched Stars Ornament

This is one of the projects we made at our monthly stamping class last week.  You can either use it as an ornament or a tag for a gift.  It was very easy to make and didn’t take long at all.

To make the star I used a set of new dies that are in the Stampin’ Up!® 2019 Holiday Catalog called Stitched Stars.  These dies have a matching stamp set called So Many Stars and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  I didn’t use the stamp set on this project but we did use it on another that I will show you in the near future.  It is appropriately called So Many Stars because the stamp set has 21 stamps and the die set has 23 dies!

I first cut a large star using Night Of Navy cardstock.  Then I scored it five times as in the picture below.  I drew the lines so you could see where to score easier.  Then you just fold it on the score lines with the points being a mountain fold and in-between the points being a valley fold.  This gives it a 3D look.

After I made the star I cut out the swirl using another one of the dies included in the Stitched Star set and Copper Foil Sheets.  When you cut this out, it also cuts out various sizes of stars which I saved to add to the project.  I adhered the swirl to a circle I cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Then I mounted the Night Of Navy star using three Black Dimensionals on top of each other.  I was so excited to see these in the Holiday Catalog.  Sometimes the white Dimensionals show so the black are great.

Lastly I added a piece of White Baker’s Twine.

Word Wishes

I love word dies and Stampin’ Up!® has a few good ones.  In the last Occasions Catalog they came out with dies called Well Written and this year they added Word Wishes.  Well Written goes with the stamp set called Well Said and Word Wishes has a stamp set called A Wish For Everything.  You can save 10% if you purchase Word Wishes and A Wish For Everything in a Bundle.

I needed a masculine birthday card and I always have a harder time making those than feminine cards.  I don’t know why but I do.  I think when it comes to masculine cards, simple can be better.

To make this card I first cut out the word “Happy” using the Word Wishes dies in Whisper White. added two pieces of Designer Series Paper from the 6″ x 6″ Brights collection in Poppy Parade and Pacific Point.  I cut the circle out of Pacific Point cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered the die cut with Multipurpose Glue. I stamped the word ‘birthday” in Pacific Point Ink and cut it out using a die from Stitched Labels.
