He's All That Bundle for my July 2022 Creative Therapy Classes

Sahara Sand, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Basic White & He's the Man DSP


Early Espresso, Mint Macaron, Basic White & He's The Man DSP
Masculine cards can be interesting with the right stamp set and supplies, and I found these cards to be quick and easy to make.  
All those who attend my July 5th and 9th classes will have the opportunity to choose from either of these two cards.  

Recipe:
  • The bases are 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4.
  • The second layers are 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Designer Series Papers are 5 x 3 3/4 and cut at an angle from corner to corner.  
  • The smaller second layer of DSP is 3 3/4 x 2 and I cut the flags with my handy-dandy Paper Snips Scissors.
  • The words are stamped with Early Espresso ink on Basic White and cut out with the All That Dies.  The top card has an Early Espresso layer cut out with a Layering Circle die.
  • I popped up the word pieces with dimensionals.
  • All done and remember to decorate your envelope.

 Window Wishes Bundle 

It's a July class, so I decided to offer a Christmas in July card for my July 5th and 9th, 2022 Creative Therapy Classes. 
This design is a collaborative effort between my wonderful assistants, Wendie and Michelle, and myself.

Recipe:
  • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Mossy Meadow, scored at 4 1/4.
  • The Pool Party layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Cajun Craze layer is 5 x 3 3/4 and is embossed with the Brick & Mortar Folder.
  • Window frame:
    • The Crumb Cake piece is 3 3/4 x 2 1/2, and the Early Espresso piece is 4 x 3.  After cutting out these two pieces with the Window Dies, adhere them together with your favorite glue.  Tip: Keep the glue on the outside edges of the cut-out window frame pieces.  
    • Adhere a 3 3/4 x 2 1/2 piece of the Boughs of Holly DSP behind the window frame layer and adhere it to the embossed card front. (I glued the frame flat to the card front).
    • Vine--I used Mossy Meadow ink on Basic White, cut it out with a Window Die and adhered it over the window with dimensionals.  I added three Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
    • Candle Flames-I used Daffodil Delight cardstock and a Window Die.
    • Candle--stamp Pool Party ink on Basic White and cut this piece out with a Window die.  Adhere the flames to the back of the candle with glue dots and adhere all to the window with dimensionals.
  • I stamped the word Peace on a 7/8 x 1/2 piece of Basic White with Real Red ink. 
  • All done and remember to decorate your envelope.

 Paradise Palms &
Ocean Front

Another card I made using the Paradise Palms.  This time I combined it with Ocean Front.  So quick and easy, and most of all fun to make.  If you would like to see a quick video by Stampin' Up! using the Paradise Palms bundle, click right Here.

Recipe:
  • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Night of Navy, scored at 4 1/4.
  • The Coastal Cabana layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Basic White layer is 5 x 3 3/4.
    • First, I used Ocean Front and Crumb Cake ink to stamp the sand.
    • I stamped the water with Coastal Cabana.
    • The sky is stamped with Balmy Blue.
    • I masked the water and stamped the sun with Daffodil Delight ink.
    • The tree trunks are stamped with Early Espresso ink, and the tree tops with Sahara Sand.
  • The words are stamped with Night of Navy ink on Basic White and punched out with the Label Me Fancy punch.  
  • Before I added the word piece to the card front, and yes, my word piece is at an angle on purpose, I wrapped some Fan Navy Baker's Twine around the top two layers three times. I popped this piece up with dimensionals.
  • All done and remember to decorate your envelope.

 Waves of Inspiration Bundle for my July 2022 Classes

Another card CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) from 2022-23 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, page 101.  This one is for my July 5th and July 9th Creative Therapy Card Classes.

Recipe:
  • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Tahitian Tide scored at 4 1/4.
  • The Smoky Slate layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Basic White layer is 5 x 3 3/4.  
    • I began by stamping the ocean with Tahitian Tide ink.
    • I sponged some Mango Melody ink from the top to the middle of the card, being careful not to sponge too near the ocean.
    • I used a Coastal Cabana Stampin' Write marker to add little sprinkles of color around the water. 
    • The pelican is stamped in Smoky Slate on Basic White and cut out with a Waves Dies, and adhered to the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
    • Two ocean dies are cut out: one with Smoky Slate and one with Basic White.  I used adhesive sheets to cut these pieces so it was super easy to adhere them to the stamped ocean.
    • Three birds are stamped with Tuxedo Black Multipurpose ink. 
  • The words are stamped with black ink on Basic White and cut out with a Rectangle Stitched Die.  After I sponged the edges with Tahitian Tide ink, I popped this piece up with dimensionals.

 Paradise Palms Bundle &
On the Horizon

I didn't use to pay much attention to the samples in the SU catalogs, and that was a big mistake.  Now I take time to scour the catalog for cards to make for my classes, my blog, and cards to mail.  
I copied this card, or in my world, I CASEd it, (Copy And Share Everything).  I did add an Evening Evergreen base, and that's about all I changed.  You can find this card on Page 23 of the 2022-23 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.
I was proud to offer this gem at our last Shoe Box Swap.  

Recipe:
  • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Evening Evergreen scored at 4 1/4.
  • The Crumb Cake layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The lattice strip on the Crumb Cake is made with Evening Evergreen cardstock and a Palms Die.  I applied it with Multipurpose Liquid glue.
  • The Very Vanilla is 5 x 3 3/4.  
    • I began by punching a 3/4" circle to use as a mask for the sun.  I used a Blending Brush and Daffodil Delight ink and sponged over the mask.
    • I stamped the "sand" with Crumb Cake, and the grass with Soft Succulent ink. 
    • I stamped the tree trunks and the leaves with Crumb Cake.
    • I cut out two trees with Very Vanilla cardstock, and sponged the trunks with Crumb Cake and the treetops with Soft Succulent.  I used Foam Adhesive Strips to pop up the trunks, and Dimensionals to pop up the tree tops.
  • The words, from On the Horizon, (retiring June 30, 2022), are stamped with Evening Evergreen ink on a 2 x 1 1/2 piece of Very Vanilla, and I popped this piece up with dimensionals.
  • All done and remember to decorate your envelope.
