My WCMD Shoebox Swap

Simple Christmas Card with Stampin’ Up! Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set

I am reliving all the fun I had in Atlanta as I share with you the cards and projects we made. After dinner on Friday night we had a shoebox swap. Each person that wanted to participate brought a card or project they made and put everything they used in a shoebox so others could create it. We each provided enough supplies for 10 people. I needed to fit everything in my carry on luggage for my flight to Atlanta so I made a simple card that did not require my Big Shot.

This is what was in my shoebox:

Stamp sets: Wondrous Wreath, Flourishing Phrases  Papers: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, This Christmas Designer Series Paper  Ink: Cherry Cobbler  Accessories: Cherry Cobbler 3/8″ Silky Taffeta Ribbon, Triple Banner Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots

Everything was precut so everyone just had to stamp, punch, and assemble. Here are the measurements:

Whisper White: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4, 1 x 3 1/2 (for banner)

Cherry Cobbler: 3 1/4 x 4 1/4

DSP: 3 x 4 (You can get 12 pieces per 12 x 12 sheet), 2 1/4 x 6 (for envelope flap)

I made 2 different sample cards so people could choose which one they wanted to make. Let’s face it everyone needs thank you cards after the holidays and this is a great one to mass produce. I have a stack ready to send!

One card kit with 2 different options

For the thank you card I just tied the ribbon in a knot instead of a bow and attached it to the banner with a glue dot. Either option is quick & easy and still makes a statement.  The crisp white really stands out against the DSP.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the Cherry Cobbler layer to add depth. Check back tomorrow to see some of the cards I made at the shoebox swap.

Have a wonderful day!

Dapper Denim 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper

Welcome to my alphabet series, The ABC’s with DSP!  This month I am featuring projects showcasing Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. Today’s designer series paper is from the 2016-2018 In Color DSP Paper Stack. You get 40 sheets of DSP in the paper stack: 4 each of 2 double-sided designs in 5 colors. Dapper Denim is one of my favorites!

Dapper Denim Designer Series Paper with Designer Tin of Cards Stamp Set

I love how Dapper Denim works so well with many different colors.  Think of your favorite pair of jeans and how many different tops you can wear with them.  I could have kept playing with mixing different colors with Dapper Denim but I stopped at 4 (for now).  The colors I used are So Saffron, Sweet Sugarplum, Emerald Envy, and Cherry Cobbler. I used the Designer Tin of Cards Stamp Set for each of the sentiments on my cards today. I just got this stamp set and couldn’t wait to ink it up!

Designer Tin of Cards Stamp set with Dapper Denim DSP

I seem to be on a roll with different ways to cut a piece of 6 x 6 DSP to make cards. I like to challenge myself to use every piece.  For today’s cards I cut off a piece that measures 2 1/4 x 6 to use for the envelope flap.  I was left with a piece of 3 3/4 x 6.  I used a piece of 3 3/4 x 5 for the layer on my card front and was left with a piece of 1 x 3 3/4.  Can you guess what I did with the leftover piece?

I used Delicate White Doilies on top of the DSP for each card.  I stamped the sentiment in Dapper Denim ink then cut it out using the Layering Circles Thinlits. I popped this up with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the card.  I used the Triple banner Punch to punch my strips of 1 x 5 1/2 cardstock. The heart is from the Regal Enamel Shapes.  I added the leftover strip of DSP on the inside of my card and then dressed up my envelope to match.

I love the richness of these 2 colors together! Here’s a look at the other cards I made using each of the different Dapper Denim DSP.

Dapper Denim DSP and Sweet Sugarplum with Designer Tin of Cards Stamp Set

The Designer Tin of Cards Stamp Set comes has 33 photopolymer stamps in the set. Great sentiments to pair on the inside of the card as well as extra doodles to enhance your projects.  It coordinates with the Designer Tin of Cards Project Kit.  (I am holding a class locally to put this kit together later this month.)  I stamped the sprinkles and confetti on this card using Sweet Sugarplum ink. Here’s the inside sentiment and matching envelope.

B is for Blooms & Bliss DSP

Welcome to my new alphabet series, The ABC’s with DSP.  This month I am featuring projects showcasing Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. Today’s cards showcase paper from the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper.

Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper

I used a 6 x 6 piece of DSP for each of these cards. I love to challenge myself to use paper in different ways. I cut each piece the same, used every piece on my card, and just varied the layouts for each. Here is how I cut the 6 x 6 DSP for each.  First, I cut the DSP at 3 3/4 which gave me 2 pieces: 1 measuring 2 1/4 x 6 (to be used for the envelope flap) and 1 piece measuring 3 3/4 x 6.  I cut this piece at 5″.  My 3 cuts measure: 2 1/4 x 6, 3 3/4 x 5, and 3 3/4 x 1.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so I made this first card for the ladies at the shop where I sell my cards to raise money for our local chapter for Breast Cancer.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I adhered my DSP to a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock a smidge larger (3 7/8 x 5 1/8) and attached this to the Rich Razzleberry card base.  I layered the 1 inch strip of DSP on a piece of 1 1/4 x 3 3/4 Blushing Bride and adhered this to the card.  My sentiment is from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits which I cut from Blushing Bride.  The Sweet Sugarplum Glitter Ribbon is attached with a glue dot. Here’s my matching envelope.

For my other 2 cards I just adhered the 1″ strip of DSP on top of the larger piece and adhered these to a layer of cardstock just a smidge larger. I love the way the designs and patterns in this DSP compliment each other.

I stamped thanks from the Watercolor Wishes stamp set in Island Indigo and punched the end with the Triple Banner Punch. I used Stylized Birthday for the sentiment on the other card and cut it out with the Layering Ovals Framelits.  I popped this up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the flowers from Petite Petals in mint macaron and island indigo ink.  I punched these out with the matching Petite Petals Punch. The mint macaron ribbon used on both of these cards is from the trio pack in the Holiday catalog (page 47).

Stamp Sets: Watercolor Wishes, Stylized Birthday, Petite Petals  Inks: Island Indigo, Mint Macaron  Papers: Rich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride, Island Indigo, Mint Macaron, Whisper White, Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper  Tools & Accessories: Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Petite Petals Punch, Triple Banner Punch, Layering Ovals Framelits, Mint Macaron 3/8″ Ribbon, Sweet Sugarplum 3/8″ Glitter Ribbon, Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Look at all the coordinating colors that go with the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper: Blushing Bride, Island Indigo, Mint Macaron, Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand, Sweet Sugarplum, Whisper White.  There are so many possibilities you can do with these colors as you mix and match with the DSP.

Here is a project I shared previously that I made using Blooms & Bliss DSP.  Click on the the image to see the original post with details how to make these boxes.
