Monday Mystery Stamping – 11/14

Here are the cards we made Monday night during our Mystery Stamping Zoom. We started with a half sheet of card stock, 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″. On the front panel, at the bottom, make a mark 1-1/4″ in from the fold. Score from that mark at the bottom edge to the top right corner of the card front. Fold it back toward the card fold. Add the 4″ square of cardstock and the 3-3/4″ square for your stamping to the front. Add the 1″ strip of vertical DSP on the front. Open the card, add the colored cardstock 4 x 5-1/4″ and the white or vanilla 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece. NOTE: your design and greeting inside is vertical!! Add the other piece of horizontal DSP above the center fold and tie a piece of twine twice around the card over the DSP.

If you would like to join us, please contact me and provide an email address. I will send out the Mystery Stamping Clues ahead of time with the Zoom invitation. We meet at 7:30 Central Time for about 40 minutes.

Stampin Stray Ducklings – Bundle time!

Welcome to our November Blog Waddle! We are featuring July-December Mini-Catalog bundles on our projects this month!! You may have arrived here from Lori Helvick’s blog.  Following me is Nancy Legate’s blog.

I picked the Sweet Candy Canes Bundle (#161052) for my card. The card base is Basic White with two layers of the lovely background stripe dies from the Candy Canes Dies (#159569). One is flipped over so the dies criss-cross. and the candy canes were die cut from the Sweetest Christmas DSP, which is unavailable at the moment. The holly leaves and pink sprig from the Christmas Season stamp set (#156293) were stamped in Garden Green and Polished Pink and cut out with the Seasonal Label Dies (#156299). The sprig from the Sweet Candy Canes cling stamp set (#159560) was stamped in Pool Party. The sentiment is from Christmas To Remember (#156300) stamped in Real Red and die cut with the Tailor Made Tags Dies (#155563). I finished my card with Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#146924) and Real Red 3/8″ Mini Ruffled Ribbon (#156323).

Stampin Stray Ducklings – Fall is Here!

Welcome to our October Blog Waddle! We are featuring Autumn on our projects this month!! You may have arrived here from Lori Helvick’s blog.  Following me is Nancy Legate’s blog.

I picked the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder along with the Leaf Label & Amber Gem Combo Pack to feature on this Autumn card. The card base is Very Vanilla with another layer of Very Vanilla which was embossed with the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder (#159847). I also embossed the envelope flap, giving a hint of what is inside! The leaf is from the Label & Amber Gem Combo Pack (#159969). Under the leaf, I added two pieces of Designer Series Paper, one from the Rustic Harvest DSP, the other from He’s The Man DSP (#159068) and some Linen Thread (#104199). Tucked the sentiment from Go To Greetings (#158763), stamped in Soft Suede, under the leaf and added some gems. Quick and easy card!

Stampin Stray Ducklings – Embossing Folders!

Welcome to our September Blog Waddle! We are featuring projects using embossing folders!! You may have arrived here from Lori Helvick’s blog.  Following me is Nancy Legate’s blog.

I picked the Lighthouse Point Bundle (#158907) to feature because I love lighthouses. They are America’s castles. The card base is Pacific Point with a layer of Balmy Blue which was embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder (#156505). Then I embossed three 1″ strips of Basic White in the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder (#154317) and the Fern 3D Embossing Folder (#158804). After cutting the lighthouse with the die from the Lighthouse Dies (#158906) and then embossed it with the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder (#149643). I chose to use the de-bossed side for the front for texture and interest.

The top of the lighthouse was die cut in Smoky Slate and the railing in Basic Black. The sentiment was stamped in Pacific Point from the Lighthouse Point Photopolymer Stamp Set (#158901) and then die cut. Both the lighthouse and the sentment and lifted with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

There are so many wonderful Embossing Folders to give texture to your cards!

Stampin Stray Ducklings – Die Cuts!

Welcome to our August Blog Waddle! We are featuring projects with die cuts!! You may have arrived here from Lori Helvick’s blog.  Following me is Nancy Legate’s blog.

I picked the Summer Shadow Dies (#156618) to feature because of the lovely flower shapes. I love the new In-Colors Starry Sky and Orchid Oasis so I used those for my flower colors. I paired Shaded Spruce and Mint Macaron for the leaves! A polka-dot In-Color piece of Orchid Oasis DSP backs the flowers on a Basic White panel cut with the largest die from the Scalloped Contours Dies (#155560). The card base is Starry Sky. The sentiment from Go To Greetings (#158763) is stamped in Starry Sky.

I hold stamping buffets each month and this card is one of 12 you can make in August. Contact me to attend!

Here is another card featuring die cuts. It was created with the Fond of Autumn Bundle (#159838) from the July-December 2022 Mini-Catalog. I love the die cut in the card base under the popped up die cut.
