Rooted In Nature

Have you tried the new Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper yet?  It is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2018/2019 Annual Catalog.  It is absolutely beautiful and makes a great background for a card.  One side of the paper is Whisper White and one side is Very Vanilla.  I used one of the pieces from it on this card.

To make this card I first attached the piece of Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper on a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I used Multipurpose Glue to do this.  Then I stamped the tree and leaves from the stamp set called Rooted In Nature and cut them out using the matching Framelits called Nature’s Roots.  You can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  Then I stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink and cut it out using an oval from the Stitched Shapes dies.  The last thing I did was color three droplets from the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets that are in the Holiday Catalog using my Dark Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends.

Happy Birthday

This is a week of birthdays!  I have friends with birthdays today, tomorrow and Wednesday.  It is a good thing I am a stamper!  Hallmark would make a mint off of me this week!  

Today is my friend, Carol’s birthday.  Carol is a club member of mine.  She has been in the club for a long, long time.  Karin (you know the one who went to Italy) brought Carol with her to a club meeting years ago.  Carol is smart.  She would rather stay in Club than live in Italy!  Carol is very kind and we all enjoy having her as a member.

I made Carol this birthday card using the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper and the Happy Birthday Thinlits.  You know I must really like Carol because I colored the Laser-Cut Paper with markers before adhering it to the Basic Black Cardstock.  I have to admit it took a long time to color.  At first I was coloring on top of our Stampin’ Up! Grid Paper.  Then went I went to adhere it to the black cardstock it really showed how much I missed.  A big tip here – don’t color white cardstock on white paper.  I had to color it all over again.  I am glad I did because I love how it pops on the black cardstock.

The Markers I used are Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Lemon Lime Twist, Mando Melody, Highland Heather and Pineapple Punch.

Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Paper

This is a quick and easy card using just a few supplies from Stampin’ Up!  Honestly, the longest part was deciding which sentiment to use!

The Blackberry Bliss background of this card is actually a note card that comes that way.  It is called Delightfully Detailed Note Cards & Envelopes.  All I had to do was fold it in half.  They even come scored already so it truly isn’t hard to fold.  There are 20 cards and envelopes in this pack.  Ten are in Blackberry Bliss and ten are in Mint Macaron.

After the very tiring folding I adhered a piece of the Delightfully Detailed  Laser-Cut Specialty Paper (the lacy circle part).  Now to be totally honest here I had already cut the panels for another card I made earlier.  Then I just stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss and cut it out using Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The sentiment is from the stamp set called Detailed With Love.

By now you might realize that all of these products (except the Stitched Shapes Framelits) have the word detailed in it.  That is because they are all part of a Stampin’ Up! Suite called Delightfully Detailed.  The suite also includes a punch, some ribbon and Faceted Dots.  Stampin’ Up! puts products that go together in Suites to make it easier for you.  It is awesome!

Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Paper

 

Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper is new in this year’s Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  I have to admit I was a little skeptical about it at first.  I was afraid it would be too hard to handle.  I am glad I decided to try it because it really is not too bad.  It is delicate but it is so beautiful that it is worth the extra effort.

This Specialty Paper comes with eight sheets (four of two different designs).  One sheet is very easy to cut as each design has a border.  The other design is one big sheet and you just need to go a little slower when cutting or it will rip.  To make this easier, I marked the back of a full sheet of the Laser Cut Paper with a pencil measuring 3.75″ by 5″ in one corner and lightly put Multipurpose Liquid Glue all over within these pencil marks.  Then I attached it to a 4″ by 5.25″ piece of Mint Macaron cardstock and let it dry before cutting it.  It looked like this:Then I took my Paper Snips and carefully cut along the edge of the Mint Macaron cardstock to detach my piece from the full sheet of the Laser Cut Paper.  After that I put it upside down in my Stampin’ Trimmer and cut it to the size I wanted (3.75″ x 5″).  The whole process did not take very long because Multipurpose Liquid Glue dries really fast.

The last step was to add the Thank You to the card.  This was easy because Stampin’ Up! now has a die called Thank You Thinlits to do this.  I cut it out in Gorgeous Grape cardstock.
