Welcome to Sunday Sketches by Stamps to Die For.

Let your imagination run wild! 

Sketches are open to interpretation.  You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout, using a square where there is a square, or you can change it to a be a circle, or oval or flower etc. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal.

Sunday Sketches SS020 Sealed with Love stamp set and Love Notes Framelits by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com

Instructions:

  1. The card base is Blushing Bride Cardstock.
  2. The strip of Whisper White hearts is made using the Love Notes Framelits Dies & Big Shot.
  3. The glimmer paper behind the hearts is Blushing Bride Glimmer paper.
  4. I cut out the 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" scallop square in Basic Black Cardstock using the Layering Square Framelits Dies.
  5. I used the square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies to cut out a 2 5/8" x 2 5/8" square in Whisper White Cardstock. 
  6. I stamped "LOVE NOTE" in Basic Black Archival Ink on the Whisper White square and glued it to the black scalloped square.
  7. I then cut out the tiny envelope from the Sending Love Glassine Sheets using the tiny envelope from the Love Notes Framelits and folded up the sides and bottom. 
  8. Then I cut out the square with the hearts top with the framelits and stamped the hearts in Blushing Bride Classic Ink and tucked it in the envelope.
  9. I cut out a couple hearts in Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper using the same framelit and then cut out just one heart from it and placed it on the right hand heart with a dimensional. 
  10. Tied the Whisper White 1/8" grosgrain ribbon around the bottom of the square,  while tying it I placed a piece of Blushing Bride Sequin in the knot with tails hanging.
  11. Placed the square on the card from about 1/2" from the top and left side with dimensionals.

All products used to stamp my card are Stampin' Up!

I have some fun Valentine cards to mail out in a few weeks.  Will you be mailing out any?

Border Buddy Saturday Love is in the Air

Border Buddy Saturday is where Alison and I (Patsy) take turns sharing with you. 

Today's card is filled with love! Don't tell my Sweetheart but this is his Valentine's card.  Let's see if he reads my blog (I doubt it). 

Border Buddies Saturday Love Notes Framelits & Falling Petals Embossing folder by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com

I was so excited to purchase the Letters for You Bundle  (Letters for You photopolymer stamp set & Large Letters Framelits) with some of my flex points.  I can use flex points I earned for many things and one is FREE Product of my choice.  There are so many benefits to being a demonstrator I can't even begin to tell you them all.  But I like discounts and I like FREE!

  • The card base is a piece of Smoky Slate Cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" folded in half.
  • The Smokey Slate Cardstock  4" x 5 1/4" is embossed with the Falling Petals Embossing Folder & Big Shot and then glued it directly to the card front
  • I stamped the L - O - V - E from the Letters for You stamp set in Blushing Bride Classic Ink and cut them out with the coordinating Large Letters Framelits Dies. 
  • I put the LOVE on the front with dimensionals to give it a little pop.
  • I cut out the larger heart with Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper and the Love Notes Framelits Dies & Big Shot.
  • The small heart was cut out using the same framelits with Silver Glimmer Paper.
  • The arrow was cut out with the framelits and Basic Black Cardstock.

It was a very quick and easy card to make.  Love the glimmer papers to give it a special touch!

The embossed background was made using the Falling Petals Embossing Folder & the Big Shot.  It looked like tiny hearts to me which I thought would be perfect for this card.

Just in CASE - Carried Away Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

CASE = COPY AND SHARE EVERYTHING

Each Thursday Alison and I CASE a card and share it with you along with a FREE Card Tutorial.

Just in CASE page 44 of the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog, Lift Me Up Stamp Set www.stampstodiefor.com horz
Left: Page 44 Occasions Catalog ------- Right: My CASE

While the template for the CASE is identical, I changed the paper, stamp set and embellishment. 

The card base on the left is Mint Macaron cardstock, the pattered paper is the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog. 

The colors that coordinate with this paper are...

The sentiment is from the Sending Thoughts Stamp Set which has 11 different sentiments.  I almost never pass up an opportunity for new sentiments.  This set would cover all those times when you need a special stamp set to comfort a friend and let them know you are there for them.

The baker's twine is Melon Mambo.  I like how they ran it behind the sentiment with the tails hanging.

Just in CASE page 44 of the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog, Lift Me Up Stamp Set www.stampstodiefor.com

My card base is Night of Navy cardstock and I choose the Carried Away Designer Series Paper which is a Sale-A-Brations item.  The sentiment is from the coordinating stamp set Lift Me Up in the Occasions Catalog.  The stamp set has two hot air balloons an some great sayings to go with them. I used the Watermelon Wonder Baker's Twine.

The dragonfly is two layers the bottom layer was cut out using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Die and Soft Sky cardstock.  The top dragonfly was stamped using the detailed dragonfly from the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set, Early Espresso Classic Ink and Smoky Slate cardstock and cut out using the coordinating thinlits.

I topped off the dragonfly with one of the Classy Designer Buttons and some Linen Thread.

The circle was cut out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits (LOVE THESE!!!!).  And the good news is they became available again yesterday.  The set comes with 12 different size framelits, 4 circles, 4 ovals and 4 squares.

The Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set is a photopolymer stamp set which allows for some flexibility of how you place it on your acrylic block.   The sentiment "Enjoy your special day!" is a straight sentiment, I wanted to curve it along the edge of the circle so as I placed it on the block and curved it as I laid it down.
