Bloom Where You're Planted Suite

Here's a super cute birthday card and embellished box I made for a friend who loves plants using the Bloom Where You're Planted Suite on page 80 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. The "Smile" sentiment is from the Daisy Lane Stamp set and the "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from the Timeless Tulips stamp set. On the inside I stamped, "May good things grow all year long" from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set. You can't have too many stamps! Don't be afraid to mix and match.

For the card above I used the "thank you" sentiment that comes with Plentiful Plants stamp set. The beautiful Paper Lattice background comes in a pack of 10. In the card below, you can see how the dies cut out the images in the DSP. I only stamped the background plants. 

You can purchase the entire suite item #155699 for $65 USD. This suite comes with the Plentiful Plants stamp set, the Perfect Plants dies, the Paper Lattices and the Bloom Where You're Planted Designer Series paper. Purchase the entire suite, then add an extra DSP pack to your order for 15% off during the Designer Series Paper sale going on through August 2nd. Order here:

Happy Father's Day! Rest and Relax, You Deserve It!

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's and Step-dad's! I got inspiration for these three cards using the Timeless Tropical stamp set and matching In the Tropics dies. I'd like to give credit to Lee Ann Greff, Jamie Barbarczy and Brian King for a starting point from their cards I CASE'd online. 

For this card above, I used the Drybrush background stamp to create the sand and water by coloring on the stamp with Stampin' Write Markers in Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Balmy Blue and Coastal Cabana. The word "Dad" was from a paper pumpkin set and just happened to match the font on the rest of the sentiment. 


Isn't this the cutest pineapple! I used the pineapple die from the coordinating In the Tropics Dies. I sponged on some Pale Papaya to add some color and dimension. I sponged Old Olive on the leaves. 

And, you'll notice I used the new Macrame 3D Embossing folder on all of the cards for that awesome texture. Reminds me of a hammock in Hawaii.

To the Moon CASE


Don't you just love this giant moon? Frenchie Martin created a moon scenery card and she used the Circle Celebration set for the moon. I straight up copied her card, except I used the big moon from the To the Moon set. It's paired with the Ride the Range set and just perfect for a masculine graduation card. My card base is Shimmery White. I wanted the moon to show through with the sparkles. I stamped the moon in Smoky Slate and sponged a little bit of Crushed Curry around it, cleaned the moon stamp and stamped over it with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. I used the new Blending Brushes (which is actually a brush, not a sponge, it's crazy!). The Blending Brushes are my new obsession.

Measure of Love & Fab Friday Challenge

I'm playing along with the Fab Friday 214 Color Challenge. We are working with the new Stampin' Up! In Colors for 2021-2023. I took my inspiration from the new Annual Catalog and used the Measure of Love stamp set. My background paper is a piece of the Pansy Petals DSP. It already has three of the challenge colors represented; Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink and Pale Papaya.


This set was one of my immediate favorites when I first looked through the catalog. The only bad thing about it is that there is not a matching die. I hand cut all of the images. To create the shelves, I cut a piece of the Dandy Laser Cut Paper which is available until June 30th in the Mini Catalog. After I glued everything in place, I brushed some matte gel medium over the images and the brick background to tie it all in and keep the edges glued down. I love the sealed matte look.

Ride the Range Z Fold Fence Card

 

I could not wait to start creating with this Ride the Range Bundle from the Stampin' Up! January - June 2021 mini catalog. I created this fun fold card using a variety of inspiration from Pinterest. I took ideas from several cards and the catalog, then made this into my own. I'd like to give credit to the three talented designers who inspired this card the most: Marissa Alvarez, Cindy Brumbaugh and Carol Payne. Check out their blogs for sure!

Here is a close up of the front panel. And below you will see a close up of the center and right panel. Once you have the basic measurements for this fun fold, it's so easy to create fun pop up looking cards. 

Here are the measurements:

Card base: Cut 9-3/4" x 5-1/2", Score at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2"

Fence: Cut 9-3/4" x 1", Score the same 2-3/4" and 5-1/2" then flip it upside down to fit the card when closed. If that doesn't make sense, just score at 4-1/4" and 7". 

Panel DSP measures: Two 2-1/2" x 5-1/2" and 4" x 5-1/4"

    Supplies:
  • Bundle: Ride the Range (Includes the Ride the Range Stamp Set and the Open Range Dies)
  • Colors and Ink: Calypso Coral, Basic White, Bumblebee, Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzaz, Granny Apple Green, Basic Black, Balmy Blue
  • Tools: Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Paper Snips, Mini Stamipin' Dimensionals, Paper Trimmer, Sponge Dauber

This card uses the accent piece over the upcoming Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper which will be out in the new catalog on May 4th, 2021.

Having a Whale of Time with Scrappy Strips

 

If you read my last post, I confessed that I am a bit of a paper collector. Which is how I got my name, Paper Fairy. Once I cut into the Whale of Time Designer Series Paper Pack, I knew I wanted to use every single scrap. I learned about this Scrappy Strip Technique from my upline, Rhonda Griffin, HERE. She learned it from a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Bruno Bertucci. Once I started cutting my strips into scraps there was no stopping me.
