      Playful Alphabet 

      Another CASE (Copy And Share Everything), from page 100 of the 2020-21 Stampin' Up! catalog. 
      This is the "Linda's CASEing month", because I really enjoy CASEing from the catalog.  So many ideas, and so much fun, just sayin'.

      Recipe: (building from base)
      • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Calypso Coral, scored at 4 1/4.
      • The Pool Party layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
      • The Playing with Patterns Designer Series Papers are cut into 1/2" strips and adhered to the Pool Party with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  When done gluing, trim the edges with scissors, or your favorite paper trimmer, and adhere this piece to the Calypso Coral layer. 
      • The Purple Posy card stock is cut out with the largest of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. 
      • The letters are cut out with Night of Navy card stock and the Playful Alphabet Dies.
      • I used the new Foam Adhesive Sheets to cut out the letters. They are wonderful.  Peel off one side of the foam sheets, which is very sticky.  Lay your cardstock on this sticky piece, add your letters on the card stock, cut out with your favorite die cutting machine, punch out the letters, and there you have it, already "dimensionaled" letters. I just made up that word!!  So easy.  I did Google a how-to video, which was extremely helpful.
      • The Night of Navy ribbon from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Pack added a pretty accent.  I also added some Playing with Patterns Resin dots. 
      • All done and remember to decorate your envelope.
      Should you want to purchase any of the supplies I used to make this card, I would be honored if you chose me as your demonstrator, and placed your order in my on-line store, HERE. Or, you can click on the 2020-21 catalog right here on my blog.

        Pampered Pets &
         Playful Pets DSP for 
        my August, 2020 classes
        Pampered Pets is such a fun set.  You can find it on page 42 of the 2020-21 Stampin' Up! catalog.
        Though I did not use the stamp set for these cards, I did use the dies and the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper (DSP).

        Recipe: (building from base)
        • The bases are 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 pieces of Real Red, scored at 4 1/4.
        • The Basic Black layers are 5 1/4 x 4.
        • The Playful Pets DSP is 3 3/4 x 2 1/2.
        • The 3 1/8 x 1 pieces of Basic Black are the bases for the 3 x 7/8 pieces of Whisper White on which the words from Lovely You are stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black ink.
        • All of the doggies and kitties are cut out with my handy-dandy paper snips, (the sharpest in town).  The little gray pooch is cut out with one of the pet dies and the Playful Pets DSP and popped up with dimensionals.
        • All done and remember to decorate your envelope.
        Should you want to purchase any of the supplies I used to make this card, I would be honored if you chose me as your demonstrator, and placed your order in my on-line store, HERE. Or, you can click on the 2020-21 catalog right here on my blog.

            Swirly Frames & 
            Framed for You
            Some stamp sets in the Stampin' Up! Catalog call my name.  Swirly Frames is one that I thought was different, and thought I would give it a “swirl”.

            Recipe: (building from base)
            • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Misty Moonlight, scored at 4 1/4.
            • The Magenta Madness layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
            • The Whisper White layer is 5 x 3 3/4.
            • The circles are stamped on the white card stock with Magenta Madness and Crushed Curry ink.
            • A 3 1/4 x 1 piece of Flowers for Every Season Paper Pack is adhered to the white before adding the card stock circles.
            • The cut-out Misty Moonlight and Magenta Madness 1 7/8 and 1 5/8 circles are made with the Layering Circle dies.  The 1 1/2 Crushed Curry circle is made with the 1 1/2 circle punch.  
            • The words from Framed for You are stamped on the Crushed Curry circle with Tuxedo Memento Black ink.
            • The Jewel Rhinestones are colored with a sharpie.

              Comfort & Hope and 
              Playful Alphabet 
              Another CASE (Copy And Share Everything), from page 88 of the 2020-21 Stampin' Up! catalog.  I am really liking the new Comfort & Hope stamp set.

              Recipe: (building from base)
              • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Calypso Coral, scored at 4 1/4.
              • The Coastal Cabana layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
              • The Whisper White layer is 5 x 3 3/4.
              • One of the small background stamps from Comfort & Hope is inked with Versamark, and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I sponged over the embossed area with Bermuda Bay ink and a sponge.
              • The 3 3/4 x 2 5/8 piece of Whisper White is the base for the Calypso Coral piece that is cut out with the, second from the largest, Stitched So Sweetly dies.
              • I used the new Foam Adhesive Sheets when I cut out my letters.  Once the letters are cut out, the sticky foam adhesive makes it so easy to pop up the letters. I can see me using these foam adhesive sheets for lots of cutouts.  They are awesome.  
              • The hearts are from the Dog Builder Punch and Calypso Coral cardstock.
              • I used a Pretty Peacock marker to ink the words and stamped on a 2 x 1/2 piece of white.  The tail is made with my Paper Snips.
              • I sprayed the card with a mixture of Frost White Shimer paint and a little alcohol.
              • All done and remember to decorate your envelope.
