Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalog

A Thousand Well Wishes

My favorite Designer Series Paper from the Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalog is the Symbols of Fortune DSP. I love the soft colors and the foil accents. I have been wanting to pair it with the Mother of Pearl Specialty Paper which is also part of the Symbols of Fortune Suite Collection.

The first thing I did was to cut the Symbols of Fortune DSP, then the Mother of Pearl Specialty Paper to layer beneath the DSP. Once I adhered the layers together, I arranged the together until I was happy with the look before I added them to the cardbase.

I attached the larger rectangle layer with the Soft Succulent Crane Pattern to the Smoky Slate Cardbase first, then added the smaller rectangle with the reeds next. Before adding the Square with the Foil Accent I added a few strips of Tear & Tape and added a piece of the Soft Succulent Shimmer Ribbon. Once the ribbon was added I adhered the square layer to my card. I wanted the ribbon to lay across the front of my card, to hold it in place I added a small piece of Tear & Tape to hold it in place.

Using the Crane of Fortune Bundle, I stamped a few of the dragon flies in Calypso Coral on a piece of Basic White cardstock and die cut them. I used the Tasteful Labels dies to cut the circle label, and stamped the sentiment in Soft Succulent. I adhered the dragon files to the label with some Mini Glue dots.

I added the label to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish off my card I added a few Polished Dots. I love all the soft colors in this card. I hope you do too!

Luv 2 Stamp Group Blog Hop-January 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.

This month, my cards were created with Valentine’s Day in mind. I decided to use the Celebrate You stamp set and the Sweet Talk DSP, both are available in the Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalog.

Before creating my card, I wanted to make some colorful hearts. So, using Blending Brushes, I brushed the same colors of ink that are in the Sweet Talk DSP on a piece of Basic White Cardstock. Then, I used the smaller heart from the Heart Punch Pack to punch out the hearts. I love the soft colors (the Subtles color family is my favorite) and I have lots of extras to use on more cards or other projects.

My Basic White Cardbase is cut to 4-1/4″x11″. I cut a piece of Sweet Talk DSP at an angle to add the bottom of my card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Then added a few pieces of Tear & Tape along the edge of the DSP to add a piece of Real Red Faux Linen Ribbon. I wanted to be sure to leave some white space between the ribbon and DSP.

I used my Stamp-a-majig to add the sentiment along the edge of the ribbon. You could also use the Stamparatus to line up the sentiment before stamping.

I punched the scalloped hearts from the Heart Punch Pack to layer behind the hearts I created earlier. I added the hearts to my card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. As much as I LOVE to add bling to a card, I decided to add just a subtle touch with a Wink of Stella, I brushed it lightly on the tiny hearts on the DSP. I tired get a good picture of the shimmer but that was not to be. Anyway, I wanted the bling to be subtle so these could be given as masculine Valentine’s cards. However, you could dress them up with some Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Polished Dots or even the From My Heart Faceted Gems.

My Thank You Cards this month feature 2 new products, The Sentimental Swirls Stamp Set available in the Jan- June 2022 Mini Catalog and the Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper from the Friendly Hello Bundle available in the Jan-Feb Sale-a-Bration Brochure.

Using the Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper, I cut 2 Patterns for the card front. Stacking them together to cut them at the same time, I put them on my Paper Trimmer to cut them diagonally.

Using the largest card from the Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes pack as my card base, I attached 2 different patterns of the DSP I cut with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I love the look of the 2 patterns together on the card front. Cutting them together made it very easy to match them up so they fit together nicely when I put them on the card front.

I die cut the label in Basic White with the Tasteful Labels dies. Using my new favorite stamp set from the Mini Catalog, Sentimental Swirls, I stamped the Thank You in Fresh Freesia. The butterflies are stamped in Granny Apple Green and Petal Pink on the label. Then I decided to stamp them again and fussy cut them out to add with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon to add to the back of the sentiment with some Stampin’ Seal adhesive. Then I used the Foam Adhesive Sheets, cut a square and put that over top of the ribbon. This will keep the label from sagging and the ribbon in place. If you haven’t tried the Foam Adhesive sheets yet, give them a try. They are very easy to cut to whatever shape you need, and give a little extra support to whatever elements you use them with.

After attaching the label to the card, I added the extra butterflies that I fussy cut. I like the extra dimension of adding them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I couldn’t resist adding a Wink of Stella to the to make them shimmer. For the finishing touch, I added a few of the Opal Rounds to the cards.

As mentioned at the top, this is a blog hop so make sure you ‘hop’ around to all the amazing projects on this hop! Click on the links below to visit them.
