Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket ~ Thank You

 

When I saw this basket of crafting goodies, my first thought was that this needed to be a thank you card for all of my amazing customers!  So, that's what it is.  Everyone who orders from me during October will receive one of these fun cards in the mail! 

I also think this would be a great card to send to Activities Directors at Retirement Homes and Senior Centers, Art Teachers, and teachers of young kids.


My first thought for craft supply colors was primary colors, but then I decided the new 2022-2024 In Colors would be perfect!  I love how it turned out.  For the scissors and markers, I also used Basic Black Blends and Smoky Slate for the chopping part of the scissors! :)


Thank you for visiting my blog! 

Happy Stamping!

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket ~ Card From the Catalog

 

Happy Fall Y'all!  It finally is starting to feel a little like fall in North Texas...it's not sweater weather yet, but getting MUCH closer!  :)  This basket of apples from Cheerful Basket stamps is giving me even more fall vibes.  I got the basic sketch idea from this card from p. 5 of the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog.  


I used bleach to discolor the handle a bit, I really like the result, what do you think?  I also used a dab of bleach on the leaves before coloring them with a Dark Old Olive Stampin' Blend.  Never used bleach on your cards?  Watch my YouTube Tutorial (linked near the end of this post) to learn how. 


I hope you are having a pleasant fall, enjoying some time outside with these cooler temperatures!  Thanks for visiting my blog today. 
Here's my YouTube Tutorial, if you're interested.

Stampin' Up! Blessings of Home

 

The color combinations you can use with this Blessings of Home stamp set are pretty much endless!  This one seems pretty 'Christmassy' to me...in fact, I might make another one and just switch out the sentiment!  What do you think?  

This is a pretty straight forward card.  I used Stampin' Blends to color the floral image, then cut it out with the coordinating Flowers of Home Dies.  The sentiment was stamped with Memento Ink (although, it was very tempting to use Black or Gold Embossing Powder)


For the inside, I used the smaller floral stamp to stamp the Basic White Cardstock insert.  Then, I colored the flowers to match the front. 


MEASUREMENTS
Evening Evergreen Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Lovely Linen DSP ~ 5-1/2" x 4-1/4"
Layer 2 ~ Evening Evergreen Cardstock ~ 3-1/2" x 4-3/4"
Layer 3 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 2-5/8" x 3-7/8"
Floral Image ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 3-1/2" x 4-1/2"
Banner ~ Sweet Sorbet Cardstock ~ 1" x 2-3/4"
Inside Layer ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"

Stampin' Up! Blessings of Home ~ Watercolor Card

 

If you've been following along on my blog all week, you know I love to color the images from Blessings of Home with Stampin' Blends.  They are also fun to watercolor!  Stampin' Up!'s Water Painters are perfect for easy water coloring using Stampin' Up!'s ink pads for the color.


I embossed the front of the card base with the Painted 3D Embossing Folder.  I love the subtle texture it gives this white background.  For the sentiment, I used a die from Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut it out, positioning it so that the end result is a bit shorter than the actual die.


Watch my YouTube Tutorial for this card below to learn how to adjust dies for something a bit smaller and how to water color with Water Painters. 


Happy Stamping!

Stampin' Up! Blessings of Home ~ Small Slimline Card

 

This card, featuring Stampin' Up!'s Blessings of Home Stamp Set, is a small slimline.  (Measurements near the end of this post.)  Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folders are perfect for using with this size of card.  I love the subtle texture that the Stripes EF added to the background of this card. 


I stamped the sentiment on Mint Macaron Cardstock, then cut each line apart and attached them to the card using Liquid Glue on the left sides and a Mini Stampin' Dimensional on the right sides.  This is a great way to add only a part of a sentiment. (The full sentiment stamp says "You Are a real blessing to everyone around you)


To dress up the inside a little, I added a 1/4" strip of the same designer series paper used for the long banner on the front. 


MEASUREMENTS
Card Base ~ Calypso Coral Cardstock ~ 6-1/4" x 6-1/2", score at 3-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Petal Pink Cardstock ~ 6-/14" x 3"
Layer 2 ~ Subtles Designer Series Paper ~ 1-3/4" x 6"
Scrap of Basic White Cardstock
Scrap of Mint Macaron Cardstock

Stampin' Up! Blessings of Home


I will never tire of stamping with Stampin' Up!'s Blessings of Home stamp set!  It is such a pretty set with flowers perfect for coloring.  The coordinating Flowers of Home Dies make it so easy to cut out the flowers and add them to any background. 


I chose to use the Hive 3D Embossing Folder as the background for this card.  I finished it by adding a few In Color Opal Rounds around the flowers. 


MEASUREMENTS
Card Base ~ Soft Succulent Cardstock ~ 4-1/4" x 10-1/4", score at 5-1/2"
Layer 1 ~ Pale Papaya Cardstock ~ 4" x 4-1/4"
