Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals For Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Did you all have a nice Thanksgiving? How many of you ended up in a food coma after eating your dinner? We had a very nice quiet one here. Once everything was done, I started pulling some boxes out of the attic of our Christmas decorations. It’s been a tradition for years that the weekend after Thanksgiving Christmas explodes in my house. The past couple years it’s taken more that just the weekend to decorate with my work schedule. This year I have the advantage that I don’t have to undecorate and clean before decorating since we just cleaned and put all our furniture back in our house. I’ll see how much I get done between today and tomorrow.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you very much. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card that I made.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Bundle for today’s Fun Fold Card.

I started by adhering a panel of Poinsettia Place DSP to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted DSP to the Petal Pink card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front just under the 1″ top of the card base using Tear & Tape.

On a panel of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the poinsettia image from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the medium poinsettia layered image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set on the Shimmer White cardstock twice in Soft Suede Ink. I colored the poinsettia image in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then used my Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter to remove some of the color so that it had a very light color. I colored the leave in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut all the images out using my Poinsettia Dies. I snipped the leaves apart using my Paper Snips. I adhered the leaves under the flower image using Glue Dots.

I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the top of the card front and tied a knot. On a strip of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the flower to the right of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Beaded Pearl embellishment to the flower center using a Glue Dot. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a panel of Poinsettia Place DSP to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from Poinsettia Petals stamp set in the center of a panel of Shimmery White cardstock in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the poinsettia flower from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set over the sentiment in Petal Pink Ink, stamping off once. I adhered the Shimmery White panel to the inside of the Petal Pink card base in the center of the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the poinsettia flower from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front. I colored the flower in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I masked the flower and stamped the leaves from the medium layered poinsettia from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I colored the leave in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Poinsettia Place DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Double Z-Fold for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? We’re upon another weekend, is anyone making plans? I’ll be at work all weekend.

Today’s card I made Wednesday on my Facebook Live Video. If you were able to join me live or you watched the replay, thank you very much.  If you’d like to view my video either on Facebook or YouTube, the links are below. Here’s my card for today.

I started by scoring and folding the large and small card bases at 4 1/4″ & 2 1/8″. I adhered a panel of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper to the large card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of the Poinsettia Place DSP to the inside back and the inside front (you can not see it in this photo) of the large card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of the Poinsettia Place DSP to the small card base front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the small card base to the large card base using Tear & Tape.

I cut the 4 flower dies from the Poinsettia Dies from a panel of Real Red Cardstock. I brushed all the petals using my Clear Wink of Stella. I cut the large flower die from the Poinsettia Dies from a panel of Old Olive Cardstock and snipped all the leaves apart using my Paper Snips. I adhered the leaves under the flower using Glue Dots then adhered the flower to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added one of the Beaded Pearls to the center of the flower using a Glue Dot. On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the card front, just under the flower, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few branches I cut from a panel of Silver Foil using my Poinsettia Dies and adhered them under the flower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set on the Whisper White panel and cut it out using the 2nd largest frame die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the back of the small card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Real Red Ink on the envelope front. I masked the image and stamped the flower leaves from the medium flower image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Old Olive Ink. I colored the image in using my Old Olive and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered a panel of Poinsettia Place DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Blushing Poinsettia Petals

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  Happy World Card Making Day!!!  Hope you will all be busy creating today and sharing/mailing your beautiful cards.  I’m a little early today, since I have to get ready for our event.

For today I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Bundle.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from The Spot Challenge # 130.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered another panel of the Poinsettia Place DSP across the center of the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

From a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock I cut 1 each of the large, medium, small and extra small flowers from the Poinsettia Dies.  I brushed each of the flowers using my Clear Wink of Stella to give it a little shimmer.  From a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock I cut the largest flower die from the Poinsettia Dies.  I snipped all the leaves apart using my Paper Snips and sponged the edges using my Stamping Sponge and Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I adhered the flowers together using Glue Dots or tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Pear Pizzazz leaves behind the flower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I zig-zagged a piece of Real Red 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon on the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the flower to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut 2 sprigs from the Poinsettia Dies our of a panel of Silver Foil and adhered them under the flower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a Beaded Pearl to the center of the flower using a Glue Dot.  On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom left of the flower using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on 2 of the corners of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Poinsettia Place DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Poinsettia Petals CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  I have to work today and I have a busy work week ahead of me.  I was able to get my house all decorated for fall yesterday.

I have another Clean & Simple card for you today that is also Quick & Easy.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #391.  Here is their sketch.

My colors are from Just Add Ink Challenge #524.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a Merry Merlot card front.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered 2 panels of Wonder of the Season Specialty Designer Series Paper to the Merry Merlot card front, above the sentiment, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 2 holly leaves out of a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock using the Sweetest Borders Dies.  I stamped the berry image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Time Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink on a scrap of Rococo Rose and cut them out using the Sweetest Borders Dies.  I adhered the holly leaves to the side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the berries on top of the leaves using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the holly leaf image from the Sweetest Time stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I stamped the berries from the Sweetest Time stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the holly leaves.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the holly leaves and berries from the Sweetest Time stamp set on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Wonder of the Season Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals CAS

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  I have off today, but I will be doing some work around my house.  Time for some fall cleaning to get done.  I have to take down summer decorations and put up the fall.  It was chilly here this morning.  When I got up this morning it was only 40 degrees outside.  A definite sign that fall is here.

I have a Clean And Simple card for you today using the Masking Technique.  I went back to the basics using Stamps, Ink and Paper.  I tend to forget about simple when I’m making cards sometimes.  The very first workshop I went to years ago, we did not do simple cards.  Here’s my card for today.

I’m playing along with Fab Friday Challenge #197.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping 3 of the poinsettia image from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I also stamped the image once on 2 Post-It notes.  I fussy cut the Post-It note images using my Paper Snips to use for my Masking Technique.  If you ever look at a poinsettia, the leaves around the flower are identical to the flower petals.  This is why I wanted to used the same leaves under the flower images.

I placed the Post-It note masks over the center and one of the side images so that I wouldn’t stamp over them.   I stamped the largest poinsettia layering image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink over and around the masked images.  I move the side Post-It to the other side image and stamped the large poinsettia image again in Garden Green Ink.  I removed the Post-Its and colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock In Merry Merlot Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of a strip of Merry Merlot cardstock, which I cut into a banner using my Paper Snips, using Stampin’ Seal just on the bottom of the sentiment.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Merry Merlot card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the bottom of the panel. Using the Masking Technique again, I stamped the largest layering poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the image.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Stampn’ Seal and then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the envelope front and flap.  Using the Masking Technique once again, I stamped the largest layering poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the image.  I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card using the Masking Technique and will give it a try.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to drop me a note at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com. I’d be more that happy to help you. This is a great technique that only uses Stamp, Ink and Paper, but looks like you did so much more.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Christmas

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  It was a gorgeous one here and I had the whole weekend off from work, YAY!!!  We had our in person, virtually, team meeting yesterday, we have such an awesome team.  Even though we’re all in our own homes, I love stamping with everyone and it’s always great to be able to put the faces with their names.

Over the next couple days I will be sharing some of the projects that we made after our business meeting.   All the cards we made used the Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Bundle, but they are all so different.  My first card was designed by my Upline Jaimie.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by embossing a Cherry Cobbler card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhering it to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using the 3rd largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered it to a Whisper White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the right side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Stitched Rectangle Dies, I cut a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the 4th smallest die and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the 2nd smallest label die from the Celebration Labels Dies and scored it in half.  I stamped the flourish image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on an angle on the front of the label.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I added a couple Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the front of the label.

  On the inside of the label, I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrations Tidings stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I adhered the label to the Shaded Spruce panel using Stampin’ Seal and adhered another Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the Shaded Spruce panel.

On the inside I stamped the flourish image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the 2 corners of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in the center of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flourish image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice on the envelope front and colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a thin strip of Plaid Tidings DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked the card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Is anyone doing anything this weekend?  I’m working at the dog bakery again today.  The owner asked me a couple weeks ago if I could fill in yesterday and today.  I haven’t worked there since the whole pandemic started.  Her business really took a hit and it’s still trying to work it’s way back up.

For today I made a corner fold card and made it into a Christmas card.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by scoring and folding my card base.

I scored the card base at 5 1/2″ then move it over to 4 1/4″ and made a small pencil mark.  I scored from the pencil mark to the opposite corner.

I folded the corner down to like the pictures above.

I adhered a strip of the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a Whisper White panel in Balmy Blue Ink, I stamped the large poinsettia from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set twice, the medium one once and the smaller one once.  I stamped the large poinsettia a 3rd time in Old Olive Ink.  On the Balmy Blue flowers, I went around the tops of the flowers and the veins with my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I used my Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter Marker to move the color around to give it just a light tint of the blue.  I colored the Old Olive flower in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut all the images out using my Poinsettia Dies and cut one of the extra small flower.  I went over the extra small flower with my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Marker and then used my Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter Marker to just give it a hint of color.  I adhered the Balmy Blue flowers together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just in the centers.  I cut the Old Olive flower leaves apart and adhered them to the back of the flower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a few of the foliage pieces out from my Poinsettia Dies from a Silver Foil Sheet and Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper.  I adhered them to the back of the flower using Glue Dots.

I cut a 4″ X 4″ panel of Whisper White panel in half diagonally and embossed one of the panels using my Winter Snow Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to the folded card front panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the poinsettia to the folded panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Beaded Pearl to the flower center using a Glue Dot.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I adhered a panel of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the other half of the 4″ X 4″ panel and adhered it to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poinsettia from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set on the envelope front in Balmy Blue Ink.  I adhered a panel of Poinsettia Place DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

The standard machine comes with all the plates you need to get started. The preorder will not include the replacement plates, but they will be available beginning with the customer launch on September 1.

Note that the Cutting Plates and Adhesive Sheets are already available to order. The optional Impression Mats are not be available; I’ll keep you updated on their availability.

So what sets our machines apart from the rest? Here are some of our favorite features:

  • Durable machines with high-quality results. The solid steel construction frame and rubber feet that securely grip the work surface produce crisp, clean, precise cutting and beautifully detailed embossing.
  • Easy to use. The machines and tools are designed for an intuitive die-cutting and embossing experience. For example, all plates are labeled with a number and are color coded for easy reference and use when building your sandwich. And just like the name suggests, our Magnetic Cutting Plates have fully-magnetic surfaces to make it easy to securely position your dies and keep them in place.
  • Simple to store. The platforms on both machines fold for space-saving storage and they look pretty too–the sleek, clean design suits any crafting space.
  • Portable. You can use both machines at home or on the go with their folding platforms and ergonomic carrying handles.
