Angela's PaperArts: Splendid Day Sympathy card

I can't say that making sympathy cards is my favourite type of card at all. However, the new Stampin' Up! Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper made it easy to create this sympathy card.  This paper is available from Friday, 1 July 2022.

Angela's PaperArts: Stampin Up Splendid Day DSP sympathy card

The papers in this pack are gorgeous - all foiled on one side and a co-ordinating colour on the reverse side.  The photos don't do this paper justice.

I just kept this card clean & simple and let the Splendid Day paper shine and only needed to add a sentiment and brushed brass butterfly.

Angela's PaperArts: Farewell Crane of Fortune, Hello Texture Chic birthday card

I'm saying farewell to the Stampin' Up! Crane of Fortune stamp set which retires this month and hello to the new Texture Chic designer series paper with its distressed touches of gold.

Angela's PaperArts: Stampin Up Crane of Fortune and Texture Chic birthday card

I use the marker direct to the stamp technique to get the two colours on the flower with one stamp. This works best when inking up the stamp with the lightest colour first, then adding the darker colour onto the stamp with the marker.  I diecut the centre focal image using the Stitched Rectangle dies.

Angela's PaperArts: Stampin' Up! Symbols of Fortune Floating Gap card & video tutorial

A few weeks ago I posted a Floating Gap card which I had made for my Mum for Mother's Day. You can see it here. As I've received a few queries about the card, I thought I'd share a short video on how to make it.

Here's the Symbols of Fortune card made during the video which features a Basic Gray, White and Gold colour scheme. 

Side view:

Angela's PaperArts: Stampin Up Symbols of Fortune Floating Gap card
Front view:
Angela's PaperArts: SU Symbols of Fortune Floating Gap card

I used the Fabulous Frames dies for the centre frame, but did add photo corners from this die set onto the card after the video was finished. The sentiment is from the Celebrating You stamp set. Again thanks go to Iced Images for the inspiration behind the design of my card. The floral embellishment on the card comes from the Good Fortune die set. 

Here's the video on how to make this card.  Please note it is an unedited Facebook Live replay.

              

This card is quick and easy to make and can be made for any occasion.  Why not give it a try.  If you're wondering what products were used on the Blackberry Fern version at the beginning of the video, it was the Stampin' Up! Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper, Forever Flourishing dies, Stylish Shapes dies and Celebrating You stamp set.

Just a little reminder that the Stampin' Up! joining special ends on 31 May, 2022 where you'll receive the five new Stampin' Up! 2022-24 In-Color products for free when joining Stampin' Up!

Angela's PaperArts: Stampin' Up! Forever Fern Joseph's Coat card

Today's card features the versatile Stampin' Up! Forever Fern stamp set and co-ordinating Forever Flourishing dies. This set can be used for many occasions.

Angela's PaperArts: Stampin Up Forever Fern Joseph's Coat card

To create the background of the card, I used the Joseph's Coat technique to get this effect. It requires:

  • Randomly inking a white piece of card stock in your favourite colours. I used an assortment of Stampin' Up! green ink pads for my background.
  • Stamp the Forever Fern images in Versamark ink, cover them with clear embossing powder and then heat set using your Heat Tool.
  • Cover the whole card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink by swiping the ink pad across the card stock.
  • Now the magic begins - using a piece of kitchen towel, wipe over the card stock.  The black ink will be removed from the clear heat embossed images and they will shine through the black background.
You then decorate the card to suit the occasion. 

If you're like me and like lots of different colours, you can receive the five new Stampin' Up! 2022-24 In-Color products for free when joining Stampin' Up! between 3-31 May, 2022.

Angela's PaperArts: Floating Gap Mother's Day Card

In one of my recent posts I shared how to make a Split Panel Card.  This card is an extension of that concept where the card base is split in two pieces and a focal element is used in the middle to join the card together.  I made this card for my Mum for Mother's Day later this week 


Angela's PaperArts: Floating gap mother's day card with Stampin Up Encircled in Beauty dies

I had only seen cards using imperial measurements in either landscape or portrait style for this card, so I designed my own square version using metric measurements.  

My card is a 14 x 14cm square card and features the sadly retiring Stampin' Up! Encircled in Beauty dies as the focal element.  The sentiment is from the Celebrating You stamp set and it has three of the little Brushed Brass Butterflies as embellishment underneath it. Thanks go to Iced Images for the inspiration for this card style. For the centre focal image you don't have to use a diecut, you can use any shape e.g. circles, squares, rectangles, diamonds etc., but I did like the look of this pretty diecut for this card.

Here's a side view of the card.

Angela's PaperArts: Crane of fortune mother's day card

I'm again this week featuring the Stampin' Up! Crane of Fortune stamp set and co-ordinating dies bundle along with the Symbols of Fortune Designer Series Paper.

Angela's PaperArts: Stampin Up Crane of Fortune bundle and Symbols of Fortune mother's day card

Instead of using the foiled side of the paper, I thought I'd use the reverse side for a different look.  I kept it simple and used the colour scheme in the paper for my stamped focal image being Calypso Coral and Evening Evergreen inks.  The elegant Happy Mother's Day sentiment is from the Celebrating You stamp set. How cute is that little Brushed Butterfly embellishment.

Angela's PaperArts: Crane of Fortune split panel birthday card

This split panel birthday card features the Stampin' Up! Crane of Fortune stamp set and co-ordinating dies bundle along with the gorgeous Symbols of Fortune Designer Series Paper.

Angela's PaperArts: Stampin Up Crane of Fortune bundle and Symbols of Fortune dsp split panel birthday card

I love all the gold foiling on this paper - it adds an elegant touch to the project.   I also used the Gold  Metallic Specialty Papers for one of the diecuts and added some Gilded Gems onto the centre panel too.

A split panel card is easy to make:
  • Cut the middle out of the centre of a tent fold card base
  • Flip the centre cardstock vertically to create the centre panel
  • Adhere the panel to the remaining top & bottom sections of the card base.  You can add the panel to the side or centre of the card - the choice is yours.
  • Decorate the centre panel to suit
For my card, the sentiment is actually on the inside panel of the card.

Here's an angled view of the freestanding split panel card.

Angela's PaperArts: Iconic dies grunge birthday card

Last week I shared a 'clean & simple' version of a birthday card featuring the versatile Stampin' Up! Iconic dies.  This week I'm sharing a more distressed/grungy version of the card which has the same cluster of embellishments, but a very different background.

Angela's PaperArts: Stampin Up Iconic dies grunge birthday card

The Stampin' Up! Iconic dies are lovely to work with and can be used for many occasions.  I also used a timber embossing folder similar to the Timber 3D Embossing Folder and did ink blending using the Blending Brushes to give a distressed/grungy feel to the card base.  

The sentiment is from the Forever Fern stamp set

So which version do you prefer?  The Clean or Grunge version?

Angela's PaperArts: Stampin Up Iconic dies and Stitched Greenery die birthday card

The Stampin' Up! Iconic dies are so cute and this card was quick to make.  I also used the Stitched Greenery die to create the stitched leafy background on the card base.

The sentiment is from the Artistically Inked stamp set and it was punched out using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.
