Welcome to the Pals July, 2018 Blog Hop. We’re having a “Pattern Party”. This month our creations will feature our favorite Designer Series Papers and coordinating embellishments from the new annual catalog from Stampin’ Up!
You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
This hop is perfectly timed, in that Stampin’ Up! is currently offering a “stock up and save” sale! Buy 3 packs of select DSPs and get 1 for FREE! (You can see a different DSP and more info on the sale in last Monday’s post CLICK HERE.)
I chose to showcase the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper. I used it on the get well card, the envelope flap and the gift bag. This makes for a well coordinated get well gift set. I didn’t even have to think about colors – I pulled them right off the list of colors used in this DSP set – easy peasy.
The card starts out with a Fresh Fig card base – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. Next up is a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Tranquil Tide CS. I kept the front simple by using a 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ layer of the Tranquil Textures DSP. The layers are adhered to the card with snail adhesive. I also used a 2″ x 6″ strip of the DSP to decorate the flap on my Very Vanilla envelope. I just put some snail adhesive onto the flap and put the DSP over that and used my paper snips to trim off the excess.
I stamped the sentiment “get well soon” from the Healing Hugs stamp set, in Fresh Fig ink, onto a Very Vanilla oval that was cut out with the Layering Ovals Framelit Dies. The Very Vanilla oval was then layered on a scalloped oval in Tranquil Tide CS. The ovals were then adhered to the card front with snail adhesive.
I stamped the flower from the Healing Hugs stamp set in Fresh Fig onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS. I used the masking technique to add the leaves. It was then fussy cut it out with paper snips. I adhered it to the lower right corner with snail adhesive, allowing it to over lap the oval a bit. I finalized the front with 3 of the gold faceted gems in the upper left for a little bling.
Masking Technique: I stamped the flower first, then stamped it again onto a post it not and cut it out. I stuck the post it note over the flower and then stamped the leaves. This makes them appear like the are coming from behind the flower.
The inside of the card is lined with a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS. Before adhering it into the card, I stamped the flower in Fresh Fig ink, hanging off the edge of the upper left and lower right corners. The sentiment was then stamped in Tranquil Tide ink. This was adhered into the card with snail adhesive.
I made this gift bag to match using the same, Tranquil Textures, DSP and the Gift Bag Punch Board. The bag was quick and easy to make using a 6″ x 12″ piece of DSP and following the directions on the front of the punch board. To dress it up a bit I used a 6″ x 1 1/2″ strip of the same design and a 1″ x 6″ strip of another paper from the DSP pack. They were adhered together with snail adhesive and the end was flagged using the Banner Triple Punch. I finished it off with a flower matching the one on the card and a piece of 5/8″ burlap ribbon.
I invite you to try making a cute set like this of your own. Links for all the product used is listed below with links to purchase the supplies from my store.
