Today's color challenge is one of my favorite color combinations.  It comes together for a fun, playful project.

3D tutorial bundle Sneak Peek August 2020 Nothing's Better Than

 

 

I chose to make some quick & simple cards this month, featuring our new 2020-2022 In Colors.

 

 


Nothing's Better Than 3D Tutorial Bundle Tasteful Labels Stampin' Up! Mel's Inky Fingers 2020-2022 In Colors

 

I paired the Nothing's Better Than bundle with the Tasteful Labels dies.  These labels have been getting a ton of use since their debut in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  They are the perfect size for creating the cute sentiments which can be built using this stamp and die bundle.

 

The Nothing's Better Than bundle has so many choices to pair together, and can even be mixed and matched with the dies, for the best custom sentiments!

3D tutorial group

 

Today we are featuring the Playful Pets suite.  If you are a pet lover, this is a must!  I love that it has both cats and dogs, and has coordinating stamps and dies, awesome designer series paper, adorable trinkets, and lovely trims.  It is very fun to create with!

 

 

Playful Pets Product Suite

 

 

The grumpy dog image is from the designer paper.  This pooch cracks me up!  I had to put her in the dog house.

 

And the sentiment on this card fits her attitude perfectly!

It was fun to carry the cute designer paper to the inside of the card.

Stampin' Tip:  

Masking is a great way to increase the versatility of your stamps.  To do this, cover the portion of the stamp you don't want inked with a mask, ink the stamp, then remove the mask before stamping.  This can be done with any stamp.  Post-it notes, washi tape, and masking tape all make good masks to cover the part you don't want inked.

For today's project, I had a lot of fun transforming a 3D die to make a flat card front.  Look at the totes and purses which can be made with this die set.  Aren't they adorable?

 

 

#151665 All Dressed Up Dies

 

 

To create a 3D project, it takes 2 die cuts with the tote die - so easy!  I wanted to make a flat purse, so I modified the cut for a card front.  It was quite simple.  Here are the steps.

 

 

First, die cut the shape from any designer paper or cardstock.  I shortened my bag, so I only cut a portion of the main section.

 

 

Making a bag 1-2

 

 

Next, trim the side edge along the score line made by the die.

 

 

Making a bag 2-2

 

 

Then, line up the bottom edge of the designer paper with the bottom edge of the die, and run it through your die cutting machine again.  This adds the stitched line and a score line.

 

 

 

Making a bag 3-2

 

 

Finally, trim along the bottom on the score line.

 

 

Making a bag 4-2

 

 

Once, you place it on your card front, adhere the handle to finish the purse.

 

 

This designer gem was dressed up using the Timeless Tropical stamp set and coordinating In the Tropics dies from the 2020 January - June Mini catalog.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

 

 

Everyone needs a polka dot purse, made with the All Dressed Up dies!

 

To create this card:

  • Cut a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Old Olive card base, scored at 4 1/4"
  • Cut a Lovely Lipstick cardstock layer 3 5/8" x 4 5/8"
  • Cut a Flirty Flamingo cardstock layer 3 1/2" x 4 1/2"
  • Die cut the largest scalloped stitched rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies in Whisper White cardstock
  • Die cut the sentiment piece using the Stitched So Sweetly dies from Whisper White cardstock

 

Adhere the scalloped rectangle on the Flirty Flaming layer, than the Lovely Lipstick Layer.  Adhere to card front with dimensionals.  Adhere purse to card front.  Add strap using dimensionals.  Trim pointed ends if desired.  Stamp a flower in Lovely Lipstick ink on Flirty Flamingo cardstock, and a large leaf in Pear Pizzazz ink on Granny Apple Green and Old Olive cardstock.  Die cut the flower, 2 large stamped leaves, than die cut 2 small leaves from Granny Apple Green cardstock.  Assemble floral cluster and adhere to purse with dimensionals.  Embellish purse handles and floral center with From My Heart Faceted Gems.  Stamp sentiment in Lovely Lipstick ink and adhere to card front.  Tie a double bow with Whisper White Baker's Twine and adhere to floral cluster.

3D Tutorial Sneak Peek for March 2020

 

Today's project uses the Full of Happiness stamp set.  

 

Isn't this chick adorable?

 

The shell is cut from a coordinating die found in the Dino die set.  And the full egg is actually the stripes for the egg in the Full of Happiness stamp set stamped twice, and cut out with an oval die.  It fits perfectly!

 

And check out the vellum background!

 

This is a NEW Sale-A-Bration item coming March 3rd!  It is gorgeous!  It has an embossed pattern and a beautiful sheen.  There are 3 different colors included in the pack!  You will want this!

 

 

So Very Vellum coming soon!  Ask me how to get your pack FREE!

 

 

I finished it all off with a fun sentiment.  To create it, I stamped it once in green, than a second time in grape, and cut the words apart, mixing and matching, until I got this result.  You can do this with any sentiment stamps to create custom sentiments and greetings!

 

 

To create this card:

  • cut a Purple Posy card base 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4"
  • cut a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of So Very Vellum (available March 3rd!)

Adhere vellum to card base.  Stamp strips twice in Highland Heather ink, stamped of once.  Color the stripes with Wink of Stella, than die cut with a matching oval die.  Die cut the cracked egg with die from the Dino die set.  Repeatedly stamp the small flower from Full of Happiness in Blushing Bride ink.  Add Noble Peacock Rhinestones to flower centers.  Stamp chick in Daffodil Delight ink, add Mango Melody beak and Black eyes.  Fussy cut, and adhere behind cracked egg.  Tie pokla dot ribbon around full egg, and arrange eggs on card front.  Stamp sentiment in Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape.  Cut out the words, and arrange as desired on card front.
