Color & Contour Bundle


Hello stamping friends.  My share for you today uses the Color & Contour Bundle found on page 98 in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.  I absolutely love this bundle.  The flowers are whimsical and have a great watercolor look.  I think the dies that go with this bundle are amazing!!  There are dies that cut the flowers, but there are also 5 different scalloped rectangles and a large scallop border die.  All of the rectangles have different features about them.  They have open scallops, tiny dots, stitching, open lines you can weave paper or ribbon through and a scallop with open dots.  I used the scallop stitched die for this project.  I love black with a pop of color so my color of choice today is Polished Pink, one of the new In-Colors for 2021-2023.  I have all of the measurements and instructions below, as well as a complete shopping list that will add all items into your shopping cart.

Measurements: 
Basic Black: 8½ x 5½ scored at 4¼ for the card base, 5 x 3¾
Polished Pink: 4 x 5¼
Basic White: 4 x 2¾, 4 x 5¼, 5½ x 2
Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon: 4½ & 8"

Instructions:  
  1. Emboss the right side of the Polished Pink layer with Meadow Moments folder and adhere to card base.
  2. Emboss the right side of the Basic Black layer with the Meadow Moments folder.  Wrap the 4½" piece of ribbon around this layer and adhere to card front.
  3. Cut the Basic White 4 x 2¾ layer with the stitched scalloped rectangle.  Randomly stamp the leaf image with Soft Succulent ink.  Adhere to card front on the left side.
  4. Stamp 3 of the outline flowers onto the 5½ x 2 Basic White layer.  Leave enough room to die cut them.  Stamp the full flower image in Polished Pink over the outline images.   Cut flowers with coordinating die.  Adhere two of the flowers directly onto the rectangle, one at the top and one at the bottom.  Then adhere the final flower to the center with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Tie a bow in the 8" ribbon and adhere to card front with glue dots.
  6. Randomly scatter some Polished Pink In-Color Jewels onto the card front.
  7. For the inside, stamp one flower and two leaves.
  8. Stamp a flower onto the envelope in the left corner.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Split Front Card with Color & Contour


Hello stamping friends.  Welcome to my blog where I like to share hand-made paper projects.  My share today is a card I made with a leftover kit from a class that I did for my sister.  I'm calling this a split front card since the middle is missing.  The stamp set is a sneak peek from the upcoming annual 2021-2022 catalog from Stampin' UP!® and is called Color & Contour (154994).  My card base is Seaside Spray, which is not available as it is an outgoing in-color.  You could substitute a Basic White card base in it's place.  I have all of the measurements and instructions listed below for you, as well as a supply list.

Measurements: 
Basic White (sample shows Seaside Spray): 4¼ x 7½ scored at 5½, 2 x 4¼, 3¾ x 2¼, 3½ x 4¾
Gorgeous Grape: 2 pieces 1¾ x 4, 2½ x 4 (sample shows this piece in Seaside Spray)
Hydrangea Hill designer paper: 4 x 5¼, 2 pieces ½ x 3¾
Ribbon: 6-8"

Instructions: 
  1. Adhere small designer paper pieces to the 1¾ x 4 Gorgeous Grape.  Adhere here one to top section of card base (the section that measures 2 x 4¼)
  2. Cut the 2½ x 4 Gorgeous Grape with largest label die from Hippo & Friends
  3. Cut the 2¼ x 3¾ Basic White with the second to largest label die from Hippo & Friends
  4. Stamp the flower image onto the Basic White label with Basic Gray ink.  Stamp the flowers with Highland Heather ink.
  5. Adhere the stamped layer to the Gorgeous Grape label.
  6. Adhere the large piece of designer paper to the inside of the card.
  7. Lay the remaining layer of Basic White on the inside of the card, but don't adhere it yet. Close the top flap down and position the bottom section of the card front (the 2 x 4¼ section of Basic White) even with the bottom of the inside.  Lay the labels where you want them.  This gives you an idea of where we are going to stamp the Hello with Gorgeous Grape ink.
  8. Stamp the remaining sentiment at the bottom of the Basic White layer that has the Hello on it.  Adhere to the inside of the card.
  9. Put adhesive at the top and bottom of the label.  Line up the bottom section of the card front and add the label so that part is on the top section and part is on the bottom section.
  10. Tie a bow in the ribbon and add to card front.

I have a supply list HERE for you for all of the products that are currently available.  You can also click the image below to get the supply list as well.

The stamp set I am using today is Art Gallery and I just love these flowers.  What's even better is that you can get the matching dies as well.  When you buy the stamp set along with the dies you save 10%.  If you are reading this on March 17, 2021 then any purchase of a minimum of $50 will get free shipping from Stampin' UP!  Hurry tho, as this is just a 24 hour sale.
