Udderly Fantastic

Each month the top sales performers in the Playtime with Paper group receive a small gift for their accomplishment.  Naturally, the gift must include a card or tag.  Using the Over the Moon Cling Stamp Set from the Annual Catalog, I was able to make an “Udderly Fantastic” note card .  As you can tell from the “udderly fantastic”, there must be a cow somewhere on the card!  If you noticed from my past posts, I enjoy using the note cards.  The note cards are perfect to have on hand when you want to prepare a quick card.  Best of all, twenty note cards come in a set, are reasonably priced and envelopes are included. 

Over the Moon Stamp Set

Here are the steps for creating the card:

  • The stamp for creating the cow spots background comes from the Love What You Do Stamp Set.  Randomly stamp spots onto the Whisper White Note Card using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  
  • Stamp the sentiment and the cow onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut using the large circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  
  • Color the cow using the following Stampin’ Blends: Light Black for the spots, hoof, and tail; Light Smoky Slate for the tail, hair tuft and shading shadows; Light Petal Pink for the face, udder and inside ears and Light Mossy Meadow for the grass.  
  • Use the large scallop from the Layering Circles die to cut a layering piece from Basic Black cardstock.  Attach the cow piece to the scallop using adhesive.
  • Tie a piece of Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the card. 
  • Complete the card by adding the cow tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Order the Over the Moon Stamp Set along with some note cards and have an udderly fun time creating a variety of cards!

Hoot Hoot Hooray

Have you seen the Hoot Hoot Hooray Stamp Set that is available in the Experience Creativity Brochure from Stampin’ Up!?  It’s so cute and the Hoot Hoot Hooray cards that are shown in the brochure are adorable.  The brochure contains just a few basics – kits, stamps, ink, paper and a few additional items to help you start stamping.  As a brochure, there are a less items than featured in the Annual Catalog.  Thus, it’s not as overwhelming for a someone new to stamping.  However, the stamps are great for all levels of stampers.  Check out the video below to see how easy it is to replicate the cards in the brochure using the Hoot Hoot Hooray Stamp Set.

See how easy it is to make the adorable cards?!  I recently ordered the Hoot Hoot Hooray Stamp Set and look forward to making a set of these note cards.  If you’d like all the supplies to make these note cards, you can order the Hoot Hoot Hooray Cards Bundle which has everything you need to get started.

Simple Peacock Note Card

Happy Monday!  Hope you had a great weekend.  Are you experiencing the extremely hot and humid temperatures too?  Here in Georgia, we’ve been under heat advisories the past couple of days.  So you know what that means, time to stay indoors and create!  Today’s card share is a design from the August card class and is a simple Peacock Note Card.  Several of the elements used for the card are from the Noble Peacock Suite in the 2019-2020 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  The Royal Peacock Bundle includes the Detailed Peacock Dies and the Royal Peacock Stamp Set.   The peacock on today’s note card is cut using one of the peacock dies.  Did you notice, there is no stamping required for this peacock.  The Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Paper provides a beautiful backdrop for the peacock.  More details on creating the simple peacock note card are below the photo.

Simple Stamping Peacock Note Card

Details continued:

The card base is a Whisper White Note Card topped with the Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The Blueberry Bushel designer series paper is 4-3/4″ x 3-1/4″.  Using the peacock die from the Detailed Peacock Dies, cut a piece of Sparkle Glimmer Paper (4-3/4″ x 2-3/4″).  Adhere the peacock to the side of the Blueberry Bushel layer. 

For the sentiment, stamp the “Hello” from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock using Blueberry Bushel Classic Stamp Pad.  Using the 1-1/2″ circle punch, cut around the sentiment.  Next, stamp the flowers from the Royal Peacock stamp set around the top and the bottom of the sentiment.  NOTE:  Placement of the flowers around the sentiment is easier after punching the stamped sentiment.   With the 1-3/4″ circle punch,  cut a piece of the Old Olive Foil from the Noble Peacock Foil sheets.  Adhere the sentiment circle to the foil circle.  Attach to card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Complete the card by wrapping the 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card and tie a knot.  

See how quick and easy it is to create a peacock note card!

Highlighting Dino Days

In today’s post, I am sharing a fun set of note cards highlighting the Dino Days Bundle.  In addition, the Scalloped Note Cards are featured. Not only are the note cards lots of fun to create, they are fun and playful looking.  The Dino Days Bundle includes the Dino Days Stamp Set and Dino Dies.  The Dino Days Bundle is included in the Dinoroar Suite Bundle along with the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper, 3/8″ Denim Ribbon and Dinoroar Enamel Shapes.  When starting to design the project, I first looked at the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper and used it as my color inspiration.  It was then when I realized that the designer series paper would coordinate beautifully with the Scalloped Note Cards.  If you’ve noticed in past posts, I am a huge fan of note cards.  Now with the Scalloped Note Cards, I have more creation options.  

Dino Days

Aren’t the dinosaurs cute?  I’ll let you in on a secret!  All of the dinosaurs used on the note cards were cut from the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper.  And no fussy cutting was required!  The Dino Dies matches perfectly with dinosaur images on some of the designer series paper.  

Here’s a tip for you when cutting the dinosaurs with spikes on their backs.  There are two separate dies, one for the dinosaur body and one for the spikes.  First cut the dinosaur body with the coordinating die.  After cutting, you will notice that the spike will not have enough paper for you to attach it to the dinosaur.  Therefore, adhere the spike to a scrap of whisper white cardstock and then cut it with the spike die.  This will provide you with enough paper to attach to the dinosaur.

We Have Cows!

Yes, in the 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, we have cows!  The Over the Moon stamp set will have you smiling.  The set is so darn cute, you can’t help but be happy.  I have had lots of fun using the set.  For the open house, I made a couple of cards and a tag to attach to a mini-milk carton filled with milk duds.  

Card #1 Details:

In addition to highlighting the Over the Moon stamp set on this first card, it also features the new In-Color Terracotta Tile.  The card base is Terracotta Tile cardstock with a layer of Whisper White cardstock.  The top layer is the coordinating gingham check from the 2019-2021 In-Color 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Pack.  A strip of coordinating Terracotta Tile Scalloped Linen Ribbon tucked below the cow layer adds that “little extra something”.  Stamp the cow onto Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and color with Stampin’ Blends.  The colors on the cow’s spots below are Smoky Slate Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends with a touch of Light Basic Black Stampin’ Blends.  To create the shadow effect, use the light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.  The Ivory Stampin’ Blend highlights the nostrils of the cow.  Stamp the sentiment with the Terracotta Tile Classic Stampin’ Ink Pad.  Lastly, cut the shape using the large circle Stitched Shapes Die.   Doesn’t this cow make you smile?

Over the Moon Stamp Set featuring Dream Big and Terracotta Tile In-Color

Card #2 Details:

For the second card, one of the new Scalloped Note Cards creates the card base along with another of the Over the Moon stamps.  The Scalloped Note Cards and coordinating envelopes help simplify card making.  The set contains 5 each of four colors: Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Light Pink and Terracotta Tile.  To recreate the card below, stamp the cow onto Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Color using the cow spots using the Light and Dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends.  Complete the coloring using Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends for the boots, Old Olive for the leaves and Daffodil Delight for the daisy center.  Oh don’t forget, color the cow’s horns and nostrils using the Ivory Stampin’ Blends.  Cut using the Layering Ovals Dies.  Finish by stamping the sentiment onto a strip of Daffodil Delight cardstock and tying a bow with Whisper White Baker’s Twine. 

Stampin' Up! Over the Moon stamp set and Scalloped Note Card

Last but not least…

 are the milk cartons with the cow tag.  Talk about a fun project!  Several of the items for this project are retired product but the cows just scream to be added to a milk carton!  The milk cartons are cut using a retired Milk Carton die but you can find ready cut milk cartons available on Amazon.  The clothes pins to hold the tag are also retired but the new Mini Library Clips would work wonderfully.  Of course, I forgot to add them to my order!   The Love What You Do stamp set has the perfect stamps to create the “cow spots” on the milk carton!  The cow was colored as in card #2 and cut using the 2″ circle punch.  The Starburst Punch creates the base of either Terracotta Tile or Pretty Peacock cardstock which showcases the cow.  All attendees at the Open House were able to take a milk carton home with them.

I hope these cows make you smile too!  Be sure to order the Over the Moon stamp set and have fun creating a variety of projects.  Contact me (CreativestampingwithMargaret@gmail.com) if you need assistance placing your order.
