Pansy Petal Product Class

Hello Stamping Friends,

Hostess Code:  ZBP7XPBT

Have you been just thrilled with the new Annual Catalog?   I held a catalog launch the day the catalog went live and later in the month a Pansy Product Class to use the new Pansy Patch Stamp Set and Pansy Dies with the gorgeous Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (DSP).

We made a card that used the dies to cut out pansies from the DSP,  a card using only the stamps, a gift card holder showcasing the Designer Series Paper (DSP) and a card using the dies to do awesome punch art— four cards, four different ways to use the bundle!

   Can we see the gift card holder first?

That is a beautiful one!  I cased one I saw on Lynn’s Locker changing up the greeting and cut outs and……

  ooohhh, I like this one best!

Not so fast, Sal, there are two more cards that we made.  The next one uses my favorite die set – the Curvy Dies and greetings from the Quite Curvy Stamp Set.  You can only get this for the next two days then it is gone gone gone.

Pansy Petals Card #3 using the Quite Curvy Stamp Set and Curvy Dies (on sale until June 30):

 

I love how the plain stripes and the very busy flowerdy DSP balance each other out.  I saw this combo on Aromas and Art.com with Su Mohr.  The inside bottom stripes are from the  cutout on the front so die cut the front carefully.

Recipe – Pansy Petals Card #3

  • Base:  Thick Basic White, 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
  • Top Layer:  Pansy Petal DSP, 5 1/2 X 2 1/2, Cut with the Curvy Die on 5 1/2 length; the cut of the curve is 2 1/2″ down from the top on the left and 2″ down from the top on the right.
  • Bottom Layer: Pansy Petal DSP-Stripes going vertical, 5 1/2 X 1 1/2; the cut of the curve is 3/4″ on the left and 1 1/4 ” on the right hand side.
  • Pansy:  Pansy Petal DSP, Die cut one large pansy
  • Leaves X 3 :  Soft Succulent, 1 X 3 1/2, Die cut three leaves- the die does the embossing of the veins!
    • Glue the leaves to the back of the pansy and pop it all up with dimensionals
  • Embellishments:  Three of the Evening Evergreen In Color Jewels
  • Ink:  Evening Evergreen
  • Stamp Set:  Quite Curvy
  • Dies:  Curvy Dies

Use the Stamparatus to position the curved sentiment from Quite Curvy between the two DSP sections on the front matching the curves of the DSP.  If you are concerned that you may not get it stamped correctly, temporarily adhere your top and bottom and then stamp so that you can add a piece of Basic White if you mess up.  With the stamparatus, I was able to draw the placement of the card on the grid sheet and the stamp was adhered to the plate with the correct curve.  No one had a problem getting it correct.


Pansy Petals Card #4, Stamping the Pansies and Leaves

 

Recipe – Pansy Petals Card #4

  • Base:  Thick Basic White, 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, Scored at 4 1/4
  • Layer 1:  Pacific Point, 5 1/2 X 4 1/4, Cut with the largest Ornate Layer Die (Remember to put a folded piece of dryer sheet underneath your cardstock- it pulls out almost all the little dots so you don’t spend time pocking them out) Layer the dryer sheet, then the cardstock, then the die. Glue this layer directly to the base being careful not to get glue close to the holes.
  • Top Layer:  Basic White, 3 3/8 X 4 7/8, This will be stamped and then popped up on the Ornate layer
  • Embellishments:  Three of the Holiday Rhinestone gems
  • Inks:  Pacific Point, Garden Green, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake
  • Stamp Sets:  Pansy Patch for the front greeting, Encircled In Friendship greeting for the inside
  • Dies:  Ornate Layers Dies

To stamp:

  • Stamp your greeting first at the top so you know how close you can get with the large pansy, full strength in Pacific Point
  • Use Pacific Point to ink up the full pansy images, STAMP OFF, then stamp, one large pansy a little left of center and two small pansies.  “Ink up, stamp off, stamp on”,,,,,,  “Ink up, stamp off, stamp on”. I have to sing that to remember!
  • Position the bud so it is above the small pansy and yet not off the paper, ink up in Pacific Point, STAMP OFF, stamp on
  • Ink up the detail shadowy stamps in full strength Pacific Point and stamp them over the images
  • Using Night of Navy Ink stamp the little beards on the three pansies
  • Using Daffodil Delight Ink stamp the centers on the pansies
  • Use the Waterfront stamp set and Crumb Cake Ink to stamp the ground in the bottom 3/4″, or freehand with a blender pen
  • Now MASK OFF  the pansies and the ground to stamp the greenery
  • Using Garden Green Ink, ink and stamp the stem going to the bud
  • Using Garden Green Ink, ink and then stamp the single stem three times coming down to the ground from the large pansy; one time stamping to the shorter pansy and twice to the taller pansy; use a garden green marker to soften where the edges of the stamp meet when you stamp multiple times
  • Using Garden Green Ink, Ink up the small leaves full background, STAMP OFF, stamp on
  • Using Garden Green full strength, ink up and stamp the detail shadows of the leaves
  • Mine looked funny with the stem to the bud going out of a leaf so I masked the leaves and stamped a little stem between the leaves.

I really like how you made each card fold differently and the different color of pansy on each card, though I am rather shocked that you didn’t use ribbon on any of them.  

Variety is the spice of life, Sal, and I think we held to our motto of ‘bringing a pinch of creativity to spice up their crafting lives’!

Don’t forget the other pansy cards we made in a previous post- click their picture to go to that post for directions.  There’s ribbon on both of these, Sal!  I think I liked this sponged pansy best.

  

And Joy’s swap card with the pansy:

You now have a seven card collection of pansy cards!  If you feel overwhelmed with the number of dies check out this guide made by Gail Ellis of Blue Rose Paper Treasures.  Isn’t it great to have others to help us?!  Pinterest also has guides to different colors to use for the pansies.

  


July 1 is the start of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) sale and you can buy the Pansy Patch DSP at 15% off.  Here is a cute gif showing the other papers offered in this sale:

Sights & Sounds of the Season

Hello Stamping Friends,

If you are viewing this post in your mobile device, click to open the email and then click again on the header to go to the website so the videos and links work.

Joy is our hostess this month and the hostess code is:  9YGY2BAX

We made a spur of the moment trip to Estes Park last weekend and it was so worth it, even though I am now far behind on my to do list.

The fall colors were exceptional and there had been a river site cancellation at Manor RV park just minutes before we called!  Saturday was picture perfect!

    Did you put a pumpkin outside Jasper to decorate?

That would have been fun, Sal, but the neighboring RV had plenty of decorations to enjoy.  (By the way, Sal is referring to Jasper, our motorhome, it’s a Jamboree, so of course, being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, we needed to have alliteration in the name just like all our Stampin’ Up! colors).  Here’s Paul and Jasper on the river site.

So let’s get down to business!

If we must…. sigh…

Yes, we must!  Select Designer Series Papers are on sale- click on the image to view:

And we have a sneak peak of the November Paper Pumpkin- I see a gingerbread house stamp, I hope, and what looks like a house we can decorate and candies…. oh my!

Click on the Jolly Gingerbread image to join or visit page 71 of the Holiday catalog to get a prepaid subscription with the benefit of adding other supplies from your wish list!  Use hostess code:  9YGY2BAX and our current hostess, Joy, will be on her way to earning free products.

 

Last year the Paper Pumpkin had tags and I made cards out of all the tags, click to view that post, and I have heard the sales of gift cards are expected to go up this year!  I am certainly running out of ideas and may send a few myself.

FYI:  There is a “Joy to the World” Facebook page for those of you who purchased October’s kit.

Event notice: If my kit arrives I will have a ‘Take A Break Tuesday’ Facebook Live next Tuesday, October 20, 9:30AM to look at the October Joy To The World kit and create cards.

Should I change my pumpkin to a snowman?

Oh no, Sal, not yet!  But we do want to get a head start on Christmas Cards, so today’s post includes two cards representing Sights and Sounds of the Season.  We love looking at poinsettias and hearing the silver bells!

  • Pine Boughs:  Garden Green, 1 1/2 X 6; Make 4 little and 4 large boughs
  • Bells:  Silver Foil, 2 1/4 X 4 1/2  Make one set of four bells and and an extra little bell for the inside; cut the 4 strips (all on one die) for the front four. Use Scotch Tape on the back of the two bells you will color before die cutting and then another piece after cutting.  Color the holly leaves with Dk Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends and the berries with Lt Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends – color twice for depth of color.

  • Front Greeting:  Whisper White, 4 1/4 X 1 1/4;  stamp Christmas Wishes from Toile Christmas, first in Versa Mark and then in Cherry Cobbler.  Sprinkle with clear embossing powder, then heat and cut it out with the Cardinal Die Set.  Tip:  with clear embossing powder, you have the ability to emboss in any ink color you have.
  • Inside Layer:  Whisper White, 3 3/4 X 5
  • Strip on Inside:  Tis the Season DSP, 1/2 X 5
  • Stamp set for inside:  For Unto Us  stamped in Garden Green

In the video, I use Shaded Spruce for the back of the swag instead of the red foil, and I had another card made with Garden Green.  Which color do you like the best?

   I vote for the Red Foil but I like the greens as well and that would be cheaper!

Thank you for spending some time with me here on the blog and thank you to those who created their club cards with a Facebook Live instead of meeting here at home.  The positive side is that there is no waiting as we share the tools, so we accomplished in two hours what normally takes four hours at the house.

Would you like to be part of club?  You can pay $5 for the club cards and be our guest!  We swap with each other, those who can, and we meet by Zoom on the last Tuesday of the month to share our swap cards, visit with each other and do a Mystery Card challenge.

I would be honored to be your demonstrator and support you however I can as I bring “a pinch of creativity to spice up your crafting world!”

   That’s the part where I came in!

So true and let us all be SALs in this crazy world bringing Salt And Light to everyone we meet!

Virtual Hugs,

Karen
