The right words – Hand-Lettered Prose Dies

Hand-Lettered Prose by Stampin Up

 

You’ll always have the right words with the Hand-Lettered Prose dies. Use a single letter or a whole word to create cards and phrases that express what you want to say. You can also purchase the words as a bundle with the Praiseworthy Prose stamp set.

I really wanted the letters to stand out so I added a gold foil layer behind the paper with dimensionals. The added height creates a shadow for bolder letters.

Think of all the word combinations you can add to your cards with this set of dies.

My Top Pick: Noble Peacock Suite

Noble Peacock Suite by Stampin Up

Flipping through the catalog for the first time, I was immediately drawn to the Noble Peacock Suite. I’m not sure if it was the rich colors or the peacock or the amazing accessories but I knew I wanted to order this bundle first.

This suite includes the Royal Peacock Bundle with stamp set and dies, Beads & Baubles Embossing Folder, Designer Series Paper, Foil Sheets, Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon and new Rhinestones. Wow! So many options to create card, home decor, scrapbook pages and 3D projects.

And for perfect placement of the feathers, I recommend using the Stamparatus.

Noble Peacock Suite

I think the Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper was what first caught my eye when I was looking through the new catalogue. I love the rich jewel-tones in this pack – Blueberry Bushel, Old Olive and Pretty Peacock – and the various foil accent designs on the papers, 

For this card, I added a couple of products not included in the bundle, the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends. If you are collecting the Blends, there are six new color sets available now.

I started this card by stamping the peacock in Pretty Peacock and then adding the stamped feathers layer in Granny Apple Green. I colored the body of the peacock with the light Pretty Peacock Blend. And then cut out the image with the Detailed Peacock Dies. I adhered the stamped image to a Stitched Nested Label cut out with Dimensionals.

The card itself is Pretty Peacock with a Whisper White cardstock layer embossed with the Beads & Baubles Folder. The next layer is the Old Olive DSP cut 5″ x 2″.

I added the Reversible Ribbon and Rhinestones as embellishments before adhering the card together and attaching the greeting.

Daisy Lane and a new Daisy Punch

Daisy Lane by Stampin Up

Is the Daisy Lane Bundle on your wish list? It really should be.

The daisies are made from Purple Posy cardstock – one of five new In Colors for 2019 – 2021 introduced with the new catalogue. The Daisy Lane stamp set is a set of 9 including a large and medium daisy as well as 4 greetings and additional floral and  greens. And the bundle includes the new Medium Daisy punch.

For more creative options, add the larger Daisy Punch to your order if you don’t already own it. One of my favourite cards features this punch. See the card here.

The stunning doily-like background was made with the Stitched Lace Dies. Cut out a card sized piece with the  lace die and then use it as a card front, create a complete card or trim down the lace to single, double or triple ribbons with the included edge. This card features two rows cut from the die.  I have used this die quite a bit and recommend it.

Daisy Lane Card in Purple Posy

To complete the card, I added a greeting stamped in Crumb Cake which is the same colour I used on the daisies.  A Linen Thread bow goes across the card. The center of the daisies are Gold Faceted Gems and the leaves are punched with the Leaf Punch in Pear Pizzazz.

 

Daisy Lane and Medium Daisy Punch

Each daisy is made with three layers of punched cardstock. The bottom layer is unstamped and is mostly to add stability and depth. The top two layers are first and second generation stamped images. For this card, I alternated the two generations on each daisy for a subtler and more muted flower.

A first generation image is stamped directly after inking up the stamp. A second generation image is stamped without re-inking the stamp and is, of course, lighter than the first stamped image. You can continue with third generation and beyond depending on the look you want.

Share What You Love Suite is Retiring

Although the Love What You Do stamp set will still be available with the new catalogue, most of the coordinating products will no longer be available.

We will be saying goodbye to the Artisan Pearls, Velvet Ribbon, Embellishment Kit, Lovely Floral Embossing Folder and Cardstock Pack. But most of all, the lovely and versatile Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is retiring. Order now so you don’t miss out. This package has 24 sheets of 12″ x 12″ heavyweight sheets many with a translucent, pearlized finish.

The colours on this card are Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz and I used the Petal Burst embossing folder on the front of the card. This favourite folder of mine is also retiring.

To make the card, cut a piece of Mossy Meadow 11″ by 4-1/4″ and score in half at 5-1/2″. Cut at 2-3/4″ to create the piece that is used on the front.

The designer series paper is 4″ x 5-1/4″.

Added to the Mossy Meadow piece is a Pear Pizzazz layer cut to 2-1/2″ x 4″ and a Whisper White piece cut to 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″.

Climbing Orchid

Climbing Orchid by Stampin Up

I am not gifted with a green thumb. My brother once told me that if there was a society for the prevention of cruelty to plants he would have no choice but to report me.

I try. I really do. But I think I either don’t give my plants the attention they need or I over love my foliage.

I’ve sought help.  Those who don’t suffer from my affliction offer advice like “try a fertilizer”, “more sun, less sun”, “water more, water less” or “change the soil”. It’s to no avail.

So, I have decided to focus on the flowers I’m good at – those made from paper.

There is no way a real orchid would survive with me as caretaker so I was thrilled to create one  with the Climbing Orchid stamp set and Orchid Builder Framelits Dies.

Early Espresso and Daffodil Delight are the main colours used on this card with a little Old Olive added in for the leaves. Other than the stamped center, I coloured the flower with Stampin’ Blends.

The background features the Ruffled Dynamic Embossing Folder and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack. If you are looking for a paper workhorse, the wood grains in this package really do it all.

A dimensional or two placed between the orchid layers really adds a lot to this card.

Hello Cupcake in Flirty Flamingo

I stamped the teeny, tiny flower from Hello Cupcake in Early Espresso ink onto the “icing” and added a rhinestone to the center of each flower to glitz the card up a bit.

So Simple Lasting Lily

Lasting Lily by Stampin Up

I’m sharing some more of my favourite Sale-a-bration items with you today. The first one is the Lasting Lily stamp set. This set is a Level 2 item free with a $120 purchase pre-tax and shipping.

A set of 16 photopolymer stamps that includes two lilies, two stems, a leaf, a background stamp and a whooping 10 greetings. For best results with this stamp set, place your card stock onto a soft mat like the Stampin’ Pierce Mat before stamping and be sure your pads are not over inked.  As this is a Distinktive set, the stamps give a realistic  image and too much ink prevents clean impressions. 

I also used a second Sale-A-Bration item for this card, the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack. A delicate 1/4″ organdy ribbon, this pack includes five colours. Free with a $60 order while supplies last or until March 31st.

Here are the paper sizes needed for this card:

Whisper White Thick: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, 5-1/4″ x 4″, 4-1/4″ x 2-3/4″  and a scrap for the greeting

Pear Pizzazz:  4-1/2″ x 3″

Grapefruit Grove:  4-3/4″ x 3″

Lasting Lily in Grapefruit Grove

I love this new Organdy Ribbon. The combo pack includes five colours – Grapefruit Grove, Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist

I find myself wanting to hoard this gorgeous ribbon so for this card I used a twist of ribbon rather than a full length.

Home to Roost Direct to Paper Technique

Home to Roost by Stampin Up for Sale A Bration

No one will ever call me a farm girl but the Home to Roost stamp set was at the very top of my Sale-a-bration wish list. I just love this rooster. You can choose to colour him as I did for this card or not. 

Sale-a-bration is a great time to start collecting the Stampin’ Blends Marker Combos.

These markers are high-quality, alcohol-based, dual-tip markers available in lots of exclusive Stampin’ Up! colours. Each colour comes in 2 shades to give you the best blending experience.

Priced at $12 per set, order five sets and you will receive a free Sale-a-bration Level 1 item. For this card, I used Rich Razzleberry, Cajun Craze, Bermuda Bay, Poppy Parade, Night of Navy and Crumb Cake to colour the rooster and Basic Black to colour the rhinestones.

This card also uses the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper another great choice for your free Sale-a-bration item. Coloured on one side and black and white on the other, this paper is a beautiful and whimsical option for your card making.

Home to Roost Direct to Paper

Direct to paper is a technique that skips the stamp. Simply use your ink pad to apply colour directly to your card stock or paper to personalize your projects. 

You can ink up just the edges or use the ink to add a distressed texture to an embossed paper like on this card. No matter which way you apply the ink, start with a light touch. You can always add more ink.
