Sweet Talk Tailor Made Tags Card

Hello! Today’s card is one of five cards from my January Valentine’s Day class-to go. All of the projects featured products from the Sweet Talk Suite in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. I cased the card from one that is shown on page 10 in the catalog. This card was quick and easy to make and shows off the fun Designer Series Paper.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – Cut piece of Real Red cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut a piece of Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card front.
  • Cut a piece of the Highland Heather sheet of DSP with the words written in white at 2 1/4″ x 4 1/2″. Run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the largest Tailor Made Tag with the rounded top.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 2 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ and run through the machine with the same tag die.
  • Cut an 8″ length of ribbon to tie the two tags together. I used some retired Highland Heather ribbon that was a Sale-a-Bration item a few years ago, so you can use any ribbon in your stash that matches the colors in the DSP. Put the two tags together and insert ribbon into both of the holes and tie with a slip knot. Trim ends.
  • To make the words for the tag, use a scrap piece of Real Red cardstock that measures 1 1/4″ x 2 1/4″. Cut a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet the same size, peel off one of the backings and adhere to cardstock. Cut letters from the Playful Alphabet Dies – one “L”, one “V” and two “U”. Run through the Cut and Emboss Machine. Peel backings off the letters and adhere to the Basic White tag as shown.
  • Stamp hearts with Blushing Bride ink at bottom of tag. I used a stamp from the Love Notes stamp set, which is retired. If you own the Sweet Conversations stamp set you can use the image with the three small hearts.
  • Adhere tags to front of card. Adhere the Highland Heather tag first, placing it at an angle. Adhere the Basic White tag over it, straight up and down.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and stamp a Valentine’s Day greeting of your choice. Adhere to inside of card.

New Horizons Meets Inspiring Canopy

Hello! Today’s card features products from the New Horizons Suite in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog, along with Inspiring Canopy, one of my favorite dies from the annual catalog.

This suite was the first thing that caught my eye in the new mini catalog, especially the stunning designer series paper. You can make simple and beautiful cards with just the DSP alone and a greeting, however the fun comes in when using the DSP as a backdrop to incorporate die cuts, stamped images, and accessories.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Pale Papaya cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Select a piece of paper from the New Horizons Designer Series Papers and trim to 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″. I chose a paper that had more subtle sections of grass and sky to get the look I wanted. In the upper right corner of the DSP, stamp the seagulls from the On the Horizon stamp set with Misty Moonlight ink once at full strength. Stamp the image again, moving slightly down and to the left of the first image, and stamping off once before stamping onto the paper.
  • Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4″ x 5 3/4″ and run it through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the trees from the Inspiring Canopy dies.
  • Color the trees using blending brushes. I used Old Olive as the primary color for the grass, adding a bit of Soft Succulent. For the tree trunks and branches I started with Soft Suede for the tree trunks, Crumb Cake for the bottom portion of the branches and Sahara Sand for the tops of the branches, going over each section to build up the color. I also stamped the grass part with the smallest grass image from the Oceanfront stamp set. I used Old Olive ink and randomly stamped the image across the area, some at full strength and some stamping off first.
  • Adhere the die cut to the DSP with liquid glue. You can also use adhesive sheets but you have to prep the cardstock with the sheet prior to die cutting.
  • Adhere the DSP piece to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp “Breathe” with Soft Suede ink on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and trim with Paper Snips Scissors. Adhere to card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. My strip of cardstock was narrow so I cut the dimensionals in half.
  • I added some Cinnamon Cider embellishments from the Pebbles Enamel Shapes right above the grassy area for an added accent.
  • For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • Stamp the large grass image from the On the Horizon stamp set with Old Olive ink several times approximately 1 1/2″ from the bottom of the piece. Alternate stamping at full strength and stamping off. I used one of the strips of DSP that was left over from the piece I used for the card front, cutting it down to 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhered it to the bottom of the piece, covering up the bottoms of the stamped leaves, leaving just the top of the leaves showing.

Happy Hedgehogs

Hello! Today’s card is a sneak peek of the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set and Hedgehog Builder Punch from the new January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. You will be able to purchase these items beginning on January 4th. This is not the type of stamp set I normally purchase but I couldn’t resist working with these darling images – they are too cute!

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Pool Party cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Place the largest circle die from the Layering Circles dies in the center of the card front and run through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine.
  • Randomly stamp the butterfly with Pool Party ink all around the card front.
  • Cut a 3 1/2″ square of Basic White cardstock and stamp the tree image with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Color with these Stampin’ Blends: Light Soft Suede, Light and Dark Old Olive, Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo, Dark Petal Pink. When I stamped the image, I left off the bottom part of the tree trunk and stamped the grass with the little grass stamp and Old Olive ink. Adhere to the back of card front, making sure to center the image in the circle opening.
  • Since I used Stampin’ Blends to color the image, the colors bled through to the back of the cardstock, so I cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Pattern Party Designer Series Paper and adhered it over the back of the image in order to cover it up.
  • Stamp a large and small hedgehog on scrap pieces of Basic White cardstock. These are the Stampin’ Blends I used to color in the images. Light Petal Pink for the bodies, Dark Flirty Flamingo for the ears. Light Soft Suede for the top part of the larger Hedgehog, Dark Crumb Cake for the smaller hedgehog. I also colored around the bottom of each body, following the little lines.
  • Punch out the larger hedgehog with the builder punch and adhere to bottom left of card front as shown. I used liquid glue on the part that is adhered outside the circle and placed two Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals underneath the part that is inside the circle. Fussy cut the smaller hedgehog and adhere in the same manner at the upper right of card front.
  • Stamp the greeting on a scrap piece of Petal Pink cardstock with the Memento ink. Run through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the smallest rectangle scallop die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. Adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to card as shown.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp the mushroom image with the Memento ink in bottom left. Color the image with Dark Petal Pink, Dark Flirty Flamingo, Light Crumb Cake and Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. Adhere to inside of card.

I had such fun making this card and it brought a smile to my face as I was working on it!

Thanks for stopping by today! Wishing you a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
