Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set by Stampin Up and Support Ribbon Framelits www.stampstodiefor.com products

I think the Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set along with the coordinating Support Ribbon Framelits Die will be a wonderful addition to every one.  I don't know anyone who hasn't been touched by Cancer .  The fonts used in the sentiments is fresh and new.

The Gold Faceted Gems really add a sparkle to this card giving it's final touch.  And I think that the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper is top on my list this year.  It comes in 6 x 6 sheets which is perfect for card making or pocket memory keeping.

The color combination really pops in this card...

Border Buddy Saturday - Carols of Christmas & Envelope Punch Board

Hello Stampers,

It's Border Buddy Saturday, Patsy here to share another fun card using the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set & the awesome Card Front Builder Thinlits.

Carols of Christmas Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com

Don't you just LOVE the little border that frames this card front?  It was made with one of the thinlits from the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot.  There are several unique dies in this set to create interesting card fronts for your cards.

The designer paper is from the Merry Music Designer Paper, you get 24 assorted double-sided sheets for only $13.00.  It is a bit lighter then our regular designer paper which makes it perfect for layering and even creating a coordinating envelope with our Envelope Punch Board.

The envelope punch board is a great way to make some fun coordinating envelopes.  You can also make some interesting unique cards with it too.

BB JUST IN CASE

Carols of Christmas Stamp Set and Framelits by Stampin' Up!  Christmas Card www.stampstodiefor.com
Left: Stampin' Up! card pg. 114 Annual Catalog ~ Right: My CASE


Today's CASE Card really is almost an exact CASE except for the stamp set.  I used the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set and coordinating Card Front Builders Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot to create my square Christmas Card. 

The Carols of Christmas is a new stamp set in the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, but you can get your hands on it early during August along with the framelits.  Buy it in the Bundle and save 10%.

The square and scallop square are cut out using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and the Big Shot.  The Layering Squares, Ovals and Circles are so versatile and offer so many options when you are creating cards.  And for the perfect pairs you could add the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Every Thursday I CASE a card and share it here on my blog and on Friday I send out the PDF Tutorial with an image, supply list, measurements and step by step directions for the card.

Color Your World Blog Hop - Floral Phrases

International Stampin' Up! Blog Hop
It's Color Your World International Stampin' Up! Blog Hop day.  You get to take a trip around the world and visit my demo friend's blogs.  I feel so blessed to be a part of this amazing design team!

 

Color Your World International Blog Hop Color Challenge August 2017

Today's color palette is bright and cheery using Stampin' Up! colors...

  • Real Read
  • Berry Burst
  • Peekaboo Peach
  • Lemon Lime Twist

Colour Your World International Blog Hop - Floral Phrases by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 2

I used the Stampin' Up! Many Marvelous Markers to color the stamp.  The flower is from the Floral Phrases stamp set and is a blend of colors starting with the Peekaboo Peach in the center, followed by Berry Burst and a fine line of Real Red on the edges of the flower.   The leaves are colored with the Lemon Lime Twist. 

I love the ombre ribbon and used the Lemon Lime Twist to tie above the stamped image.  Then topped it off with the sentiment stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink on Peekaboo Peach and punched out with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch and attached with a dimensional.

Card Measurements:

  • Card Base: Whisper White 4-1/4" x 11"
  • Card Front: Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper (Berry Burst) 4-1/4" x 5-1/4"
