Card Swap…Day 2

I’m excited to share some more of the beautiful cards from my first Just Stampin’ Card Swap! You are in for a treat with some fun folds and lovely layers. The collection of cards might not all have current Stampin’ Up! products, but every card gives good ideas for color combinations, layouts, and techniques. Yesterday I shared the first set of cards. You can see those cards HERE. Let the inspiration continue…

I told you these would be awesome!!! From great techniques (inlaid, watercolor, sponging) to fun folds and lovely layers. Please leave a comment below to let these artists know how much you love their creations. If you participated in the swap and don’t see the card you received here, please wait to comment about that card when it is showcased. That way, the creator of that card will be sure to see your comments. Thank you to everyone who participated!  It was so much fun getting “Happy Mail”! Check back tomorrow for more card swap inspiration.

Have a wonderful day!

A Glimmery Thank you

Yesterday I shared the 3 new Sale-A-Bration items. My favorite new item is the  6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack!  I need a lot of thank you cards so I decided to play with the new glimmer paper to make some cards.

Stampin Up Clean & Simple Bold Butterfly Thank You card ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I have used this simple card design before. You can change the DSP and choose a variety of sentiments then cut them out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Layering Ovals Framelits. I used  DSP from Floral Boutique, Succulent Garden, and Blooms & Bliss.  The DSP is cut at 3 1/4 x 3 1/2 and matted with a layer of cardstock that measures 3 3/8 x 3 5/8.   I chose colors to coordinate with the new glimmer paper from Sale-A-Bration…Bermuda Bay with Night of Navy, Sweet Sugarplum with Old Olive, and Mint Macaron with Island Indigo.

The sentiments are from Suite Sayings, Suite Sentiments, and Dragonfly Dreams though many others would fit as well.  I used the Bold Butterfly Framelits to cut the butterflies from each of the different colors of glimmer paper. The 6 x 6 Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack comes with 12 sheets; 4 each of 3 colors (Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum).

D is for a Date with Dragonfly Dreams and Detailed Dies

 

Stampin Up Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits calendar card ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I’m showcasing Dragonfly Dreams. This is already one of the most popular new items and I can see why!  It is so easy to create a quick and simple card with the Detailed Dragonfly Dies and some DSP. I used different dies, sentiments, and Designer Series Paper on each of these calendar cards.

The sentiment is from the Designer Tee Stamp Set which you can get FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration.  There are 10 different stamps in the set. I cut the detailed dragonfly from gold foil and attached vellum behind the wings.

It’s hard to tell in the photo but I added Wink of Stella to the dragonflies.  I masked the sentiment from the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set and cut it out with the Layering Circle Framelits. It is quick and easy to stamp masked sentiments with photopolymer stamps!

I watercolored the bees using the new Watercolor Pencils and a blender pen. I cut them out with my paper snips. The calendars are from Taylored Expressions.

I don’t know which one is my favorite.  I love the Detailed Dragonfly Dies!  These calendar cards are made just like a basic card with the addition of a “tent” to make it sturdy to stand up all year long.  To make the tent support, start with a matching piece of cardstock that measures 4 1/4 x 5.  Score at 1, 2 1/2, and 4.  Adhere to the inside of the card.
