I had a little problem making this card! I decided that I wanted to do a double Z fold and when my design was done, the Happy Easter greeting was too long and I did not like how it fit. I decided that I would perform stamp surgery and cut the greeting to make two stamps. This would have been perfect except I dropped the Easter half and my little puppy Dolce got it. I didn’t even realize this until I saw her chewing something and got it out of her mouth. Thankfully she was ok, but my stamp was not! I wish I had taken a picture of it, but I was so upset that I tossed it before I even thought about it!


The Heart & Home DSP has a vintage look that I adore. When I saw the Easter Friends stamp set I knew that I wanted to use it with the Heart & Home paper to make a sweet, vintage card for Easter.


When picking the paper, I wanted to use one of the wood grain prints. To give it some color, I used a blending brush and Sahara Sand ink. This gave the perfect look of distressed wood.

Measurements:

Main Card Base

  • Sahara Sand 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 2 1/8 and 4 ¼
  • Floral DSP 1 7/8 x 5 ¼
  • Wood Grain DSP 4 x 5 1/4

Small Z fold

  • Fresh Freesia 3 3/4 x 6 1/4, scored at 2 1/8 and 4 ¼
  • Floral DSP 1 7/8 x 3 ½
  • Basic White 1 7/8 x 3 1/2

Bunny

  • Sahara Sand 2 x 3

Assembly:

  • Adhere the floral DSP and Wood Grain DSP to the Sahara Sand card base. The floral DSP goes on the left panel and the Wood Grain DSP goes on the right panel, leave the center panel blank. Fold the card mountain on the first score line and valley on the next.
  • Adhere the floral DSP and Basic White cardstock to the Fresh Freesia small Z fold piece. The floral DSP goes on the left panel and the Basic White cardstock goes on the right panel, leave the center panel blank. Fold the card mountain on the first score line and valley on the next.
  • Attach the small Z fold to the card base, centering the small rectangle top and bottom. Rather than centering left to right, I decided to slightly offset the front to show more of the floral DSP on the left front panel. To attach the two panels, I put the pieces together and put liquid glue on the edge of the front flap of the small Z fold and attach that first. Then I use liquid glue applied to back of the small Z fold and attach that.


  • I stamped the bunny in basic gray and used Wink of Stella to blend and soften the lines which also pulls a slight bit of color into the image. It is hard to capture the shimmer in a photo, but it is the perfect touch on this sweet bunny. I used dimensionals to attach it to the small Z fold.


  • The bunny just looks like it should be holding something so I fussy cut a small flower from the floral DSP and added a small bow using white baker’s twine. I added pearls in the upper right corner of the back panel and one to the center of the bow.

Luv2Stamp Group Blog Hop February 2022



Welcome to the Luv 2 Stamp Group’s 2022 Blog Hop! We are excited to share projects with you again this year. We hope to inspire you to create beautiful new projects. Each month we will have a different theme based on the next month’s celebrations using Stampin’ Up! products.


Once you are done with each post, scroll down to the bottom and you will see a list of Blog Hop participants, you can click on their name to go to their post, or you can click the next button to go to the next post in line. Happy crafting! This month’s theme is Celebrating Women.


The Flowing Flowers stamp set is perfectly feminine and pretty so I knew that I had to use that for this month’s theme. I wanted to create a card that has a slightly vintage, shabby chic vibe but still has an overall fresh look. I just love the new layering designs vellum and I think adding this is the perfect way to achieve that. This card will be sent to someone who has many things to celebrate, mainly herself!!





Measurements:


Fresh Freesia - 4.25” x 11”, scored at 5.5”


Heart & Home DSP Mat - 4” x 5.5”


Basic White Mat - 3.75” x 5”; 4” x 5.25” (2 pieces); scrap for sentiment


Layering Designs Vellum - 3.25” x 4.75”


Stamping:


Use one of the 4” x 5.25” pieces for stamping the flowers.


Apply ink to the stamps using a sponge dauber. The flowers are stamped in Fresh Freesia and the leaves in Pear Pizzazz. Fussy cut the flowers.


Stamp the sentiment on a strip of Basic White using  Garden Green ink and trim strip as desired.


Stamp the card insert if desired.


Assembly:


Adhere the DSP mat to the card base, leaving a border on each side.


Adhere the 3.75” x 5” Basic White mat to the DSP centering so that there are equal borders top and bottom as well as left and right.


Adhere the vellum mat over the Basic White mat leaving an equal border around the edges. Be sure to apply the adhesive just to the area where the flowers will be glued in order to conceal the adhesive.


Layer the flowers so that they are sitting in the lower side of the card. Be sure to pop the larger flowers on dimensionals.


Attach the sentiment to the card.


Add some bling for the finishing touches!

Luv2Stamp Group Blog Hop - January 2022

 

Welcome to the Luv 2 Stamp Group’s 2022 Blog Hop! We are excited to share projects with you this year, we hope to inspire you to create beautiful new projects. Each month we will have a different theme based on the next month’s celebrations using Stampin’ Up! products.


Once you are done with each post, scroll down to the bottom and you will see a list of Blog Hop participants, you can click on their name to go to their post, or you can click the next button to go to the next post in line. Happy crafting! This month’s theme is Love!



For this month, I decided to do a non-traditional color palette for a Valentine’s card for my husband. I choose the Abstract Beauty Ephemera Pack and Cards andEnvelopes. The Balmy Blue base and Misty Moonlight circle were perfect combined with the Magenta Madness and Crushed Curry heart.


 

In order to tie the colors together, I used a strip of the rainbow stripe paper from the Sale-A-Bration Sunshine & Rainbows DSP and anchored that with a strip of Blushing Bride paper from the Abstract Beauty DSP (the reverse of the Misty Moonlight circle). I used an arrow from the ephemera pack on the heart to bring in some more of the gold foil touches. The sentiment is from the Sale-A-Bration Friendly Hello stamp set. I inked it in Misty Moonlight, being careful to only ink the first two lines. I debated on adding embellishments and tried several, finally opting to use the Clear Epoxy Dots.




For the inside of the card, I used a blending brush to add some Misty Moonlight ink on the outside edge of the card. I thought that it needed a little something more, so I used the frame from the hearts that I had punched out as a mask to create hearts in the corner. I wanted to carry this theme to the envelope so I added hearts to the bottom corners.
