Today I’m featuring a card I made to send to my friends and relatives for the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. It has been many years since Stampin’ Up! has had a Jewish holiday stamp set, except for a few occasional Hanukkah greetings, so every year I take on the challenge of using SU products to create my holiday cards. It is amazing what you can come up with! When I received the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, as soon as I spotted the pomegranate image in the new Slice of Happiness stamp set pictured on page 129, I knew it would be perfect for my cards. The pomegranate is a symbol that is frequently used in Jewish imagery as it signifies fruitfulness, knowledge, learning, wisdom and has special meaning for Rosh Hashanah because it is said that the pomegranate has 613 seeds, which is the exact number of commandments that are found in the Torah so it is customary to eat the fruit on this holiday. While I created this as a holiday card, you can substitute any greeting to the front and inside of the card and use it for another occasion. One note: I used a set of Jewish holiday greetings from Papertrey Ink that were designed specifically for this holiday.
Here is how I made the card.
Cut piece of Merry Merlot cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 11″ and fold in half.
Cut piece of Rococo Rose cardstock at 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″and die cut with the 5th largest die from the Stitched Rectangle die set. Cut piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 3″ x 4 1/2″ and die cut with the 6th largest Stitched Rectangle die.
Stamp pomegranate image with Merry Merlot ink. Stamp dewdrops with Delicata Celestial Copper ink in opposite corners of the rectangle . Adhere this piece to the Rococo Rose piece.
For the decorative border cut a piece of copper foil at 1 1/2″ x 6″ and run it through your die cutting machine with the floral die from the Delicate Lace die set. Use a light layer of liquid glue to adhere to bottom front of card. Snip off ends at each side of the die cut piece. Center the image above the foil piece and adhere to card front.
For the inside of the card cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp greeting. Stamp dewdrops at bottom left of piece with the Delicata Celestial Copper ink. Adhere to card.
Hello and for those of you in the U.S. Happy Labor Day! Today I’m participating for the first time in Kylie Bertucci’s International Stampin’ Up! Blog Highlights. Readers get to vote on their top five favorites in the gallery and the top 10 ten winners will get to participate in an International Blog Hop later this month. The theme is encouragement and I hope you like my card.
I chose to work with Healing Hugs, a stamp set in the Distinktive line of photo-realistic stamps. I love the sentiments as well as the type fonts in this set. A group of women that stamp with me a few times a year recently asked to make some get well and sympathy cards and this was one of the cards we made. As it turns out, I needed two cards shortly after we made them so they came in handy.
Here is how I made the card:
Cut a piece of Rococo Rose cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold in half.
Cut a piece of the handwriting paper from the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and adhere to card base.
Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3″ x 4 1/2″. Stamp flowers with Merry Merlot and Rococo Rose inks, slightly overlapping them. Stamp leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink. Stamp cross-hatch design with Soft Suede ink. Adhere to a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock cut at 3 1/8″ x 4 5/8″. Adhere to card.
On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock stamp sentiment with Soft Suede ink. Cut with the stitched label die from the Smooth Sailing dies. You can use any other similar dies or punches. Add a small Rococo Rose faceted dot. Adhere to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Hello! Today I have a trio of cards I made for a recent class I gave using the gorgeous Noble Peacock Suite of products pictured on pages 24-26 in the annual catalog. I previously posted a fourth card here.
The first card is 4 1/4″ square. Card base is cut at 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ from a piece of Old Olive Noble Peacock Specialty DSP. Cut piece of Old Olive cardstock at 3 1/4″ square and run through Subtle 3D embossing folder to give the piece some texture. Attach to card base with dimensionals. Cut two peacock feathers from a piece of copper foil using the Detailed Peacock Dies and adhere to the textured piece. Stamp greeting from the Floral Essence set in Old Olive ink on scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock and cut with a rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. Attach to card with dimensionals. Add green Noble Peacock rhinestones to the feathers.
For the next card cut piece of Blueberry Bushel cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and fold in half. Cut piece of Blueberry Bushel paper from the Noble Peacock Specialty DSP at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and adhere to card base. Cut two pieces of cardstock, Highland Heather at 3 1/2″ x 5″ and Whisper White at 2 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ and run through the Beads & Baubles embossing folder. Adhere Highland Heather piece with Snail Tape and the Whisper White with dimensionals. For the peacock cut a piece of Shimmery White cardstock at 3″ x 5″ and using sponge daubers, first add a patch of Blueberry Bushel ink across the piece, followed by Pretty Peacock and then Highland Heather until the piece is covered entirely. Cut a piece of an adhesive sheet and adhere to the back. SU no longer sells these sheets so if you do not have them you can use the fine tip adhesive or other glue of your choice. Cut out with the filigree peacock die from the Detailed Peacock Dies. Cut three leaves from the die set with Pretty Peacock cardstock and trim the stems. Peel adhesive backing off the peacock and lightly glue leaves to the back of the peacock. Adhere peacock to the Whisper White embossed piece. Stamp greeting in Highland Heather ink, cut with one of the small Stitched Nested Labels, attach with dimensionals and add purple rhinestone to the greeting.
For the last card I wanted to use my favorite Designer Series paper, Perennial Essence. I thought that some of the blue and green papers would work well with the peacock image and I love how it looks! Cut piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold in half. Cut one piece of DSP at 4″ x 5 1’4″ and adhere to card base. Cut two pieces of Old Olive cardstock, one at 3″ x 3 1/2″ and the other at 2 3/4″ x 3 1/4″. Cut piece of DSP at 2 7/8″ x 3 3/8″ and adhere to larger piece of Old Olive cardstock. Tie piece of reversible ribbon around this piece and adhere to card. Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3 1/8″ x 2 5/8″. Stamp top part of peacock in Old Olive ink on left side. Stamp tail feathers around peacock in Bermuda Bay ink. Adhere to smaller piece of Old Olive cardstock and then adhere to card. Stamp greeting in Bermuda Bay ink and die cut or punch out circle.

Hello and welcome to Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop! I’m part of a group of amazingly talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world that participate in Kylie’s program for building our businesses.
Today’s card is made with products from the gorgeous Perennial Essence Suite. I was asked by a friend to create a special birthday card for a friend of hers. After going to several card shops she couldn’t find what she was looking for so this is what I came up with after discussing what she wanted on the card. I gave her several choices and was hoping she would pick my favorite one – and she did!
This is how I made the card:
Card base – Petal Pink cardstock cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold in half.
Cut piece of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Adhere piece of Organdy Striped Ribbon to paper and adhere to card base. Cut another piece of ribbon, tie in bow and adhere with a Mini Glue Dot.
Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. Stamp largest flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set all over with Petal Pink ink. Stamp the beautiful day sentiment from the Love What You Do stamp set over the flowers using Balmy Blue ink. Adhere to card.
Stamp medium flower twice on piece of Whisper White cardstock with Balmy Breeze ink and then stamp the center of one of the flowers with Crushed Curry ink. Stamp small flower twice with Blueberry Bushel ink and stamp both flower centers with Crushed Curry Ink. Fussy cut all four flowers. Adhere the two larger flowers together. Arrange flowers at bottom left corner of card and adhere.
