Amazing You Note Cards & Wallet

With Sale-A-Bration 2018 winding down at the end of the week, I wanted to share a project that I really enjoyed making using the Amazing You stamp set that’s a FREE product during this promotion.  There were many sets included in this year’s Sale-A-Bration Catalog that I absolutely loved and will continue to use for a long time.  But I must say that this set has seen the most ink!  I’m a bit obsessed with this flower!

Stampin Up Amazing You Thank You Notes Sets - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

I created a set of four Thank You notes and a “wallet” to hold them.

The notes were the Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes.  I color coordinated the card stock and flower color on each card.  The sentiment is from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set.

First, I stamped the flower image on a piece of Whisper White card stock in Old Olive ink along with the sentiment in Basic Black ink.  Then I stamped the same flower image twice on a separate piece of Whisper White card stock in Black Memento ink and colored each using Stampin’ Blends.  After coloring both flowers, I cut one out completely and glued it directly on top of the image that was stamped in Old Olive.  Next, I only cut the inner petals from the second flower, curled it with a bone folder and used a Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere it.  This gives a really pretty dimensional look.  I also added some Clear Wink of Stella to the top flower for a pretty sparkle.

Here are each of the Note Cards….

To embellish the envelope flap, I used one of the embossing folders included in the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder set.  These can be found in the Occasions Catalog and they’re also one of the free items included in the Sale-A-Bration promotion.   This gave the envelopes a really pretty texture without adding a lot of bulk.

So now that I had this pretty set of Note Cards, I needed something equally pretty to put them in.  I searched on You Tube for ideas and found this fabulous one HERE from France Martin.  I had to tweak the dimensions a bit and used a non-SU die to create the flap but France’s tutorial was very helpful and inspirational.

The Designer Series Paper pattern is from the Suite Soiree collection but the sky’s the limit with how to decorate this wallet.  I made a few more sets of these using different DSP which I will post on Friday.  I had the large black embellishment in my stash and it was just perfect for the center of the flower.

To keep it closed, I glued two tiny magnets and hid them behind the circles you see above.  This keeps the wallet nicely and neatly closed.

I was surprised at how easy these were and really not that time consuming when you have a production line going.  I like to have projects like this that I can do in different stages.  I stamped all the flowers and then while watching TV colored and cut them.  Using the Misti, I stamped the flower image and sentiment on the note card at the same time.  Once I had the dimensions for the box it was easy to cut a few at a time along with the Designer Series Paper.

I plan on giving a few of these sets out as gifts and will be making more to include in my Craft Shows next Fall.

It’s hard to believe that Sale-A-Bration is over already.  I’ve been really enjoying everything it offered this year.  I hope you’ve been able to take advantage of it, too!

        

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Blossoming Basket Mother’s Day Gift Card Holder

Good Monday Morning!  It’s a new week and there is no snow predicted, so maybe Spring is actually on the way.  I sure hope so since Easter is less than a week away and who likes to be bundled up on Easter?!

Today I have a pretty way to give a gift card.  Gift cards are the gift of choice in our family so I’m always looking for creative ways to package them.  My card today is for Mother’s Day but could easily be for a birthday, thank you, etc.

Blossoming Basket Mother's Day Gift Card Holders - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

I used the fabulous bundle, Blossoming Basket, which is only available as a Sale-A-Bration item.  And Sale-A-Bration is almost over.  It ends on Saturday, March 31st, so if this is one of the products you must have…times a tickin’.  I love all the images in this set as well as the coordinating basket weave embossing folder. I can see so many possibilities with both together and separately.

Blossoming Basket #147505
FREE with $100 Purchase

My card is what I’ve seen referred to as a Stable Door Fold.  It’s an A2 card but cut on the score line down to 3″ and then across to create the “half door”.

Two different patterns from Fresh Floral Designer Series Paper in Powder Pink are layered on Pear Pizzazz card stock for the outside as well as the inside.

Using a few framelits from the Layering Ovals Framelits, I cut the largest in Silver Foil, the scalloped in Pear Pizzazz card stock and the smallest in Whisper White card stock, which I embossed with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder. I glued them all directly to the front of the card. Be careful to only put glue on the bottom half.

This pretty basket was stamped in Black Memento ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends markers.  I used the Brother Scan n’ Cut to cut the basket and butterfly, however I had to cut inside the handle with paper snips.  The image was adhered to the ovals with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, was cropped with the Classic Label Punch.  Both the stamp set and the punch are classics in my book.  Teeny Tiny Wishes has sentiments for just about every holiday and occasion.  And the Classic Label Punch is the perfect size for most of the petite sentiments.

I created a pocket on the inside of the “door” with card stock and DSP to hold a gift card. Before adhering it, I notched it with the 3/4″ circle punch.  You could also easily use a circle framelit for this.

The sentiment and flower image on the inside is from the Friendships Sweetest Thoughts stamp set which is available in the Occasions Catalog.

Again, I used the retired Envelope Liner Framelits to line the envelope.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful week!

Remember….this is the last week to take advantage of Sale-a-Bration 2018.  The products offered this year are fabulous and you may never see them again.  So if any of these products absolutely need to be in your collection, this is the week to place your order and get them FREE!

Fresh Floral Notecards

I’m so glad it’s Friday…what a discombobulated week this has been!  Here in SE Pennsylvania we were hit with our 4th Nor’easter in as many weeks.  We only got about 6″ of snow but it sure did disrupt the first week of Spring, not to mention crush the daffodils that were starting to bloom!

So my card share today is all about fresh and pretty with the hopes that Spring will come and stay!

Stampin Up Fresh Florals Notecard Set - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

I love making sets of notecards especially when there are so many coordinating products to choose from.  Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy to coordinate stamps, card stock, designer series paper, inks, ribbons and embellishments.  This is what draws most people into the world of Stampin’ Up! I know that’s one of the things I love most about this company.  You can always count on lots of style and coordination.

I used the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper, which features all the 2017-2019 In-Colors.  This paper will probably retire at the end of this catalog season on May 31st, so I wanted to use some of it and these cards were the perfect project.

Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper #144131

The image, from the Floral Phrases stamp set, is heat embossed in white embossing powder.  A few pearls scattered around the image is a pretty detail.  I then layered it on a stitched rectangle and wrapped a color coordinated ribbon tied in a bow around it before adhering it to the DSP and card base.  I must admit it took me awhile to get the bow just right since it needed to lay flat on the card.

A strip of DSP adds a bit of interest to the inside, which is left blank for a personal note.

Here is each color….

I used a coordinating pattern from the Fresh Florals DSP collection to line the envelope.  I’m still using the retired Envelope Liner Framelits as I think they are a fabulous, not to mention easy, way to embellish envelopes.

These five notecards and envelopes fit perfectly into one of the Acetate Card Boxes that are a carry over item from the Holiday Catalog.  I thought about embellishing the box but once I put the cards in, I thought that the card front was embellishment enough.  Note card sets are great to have on hand as hostess gifts or teacher gifts.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and will enjoy a little Spring weather wherever you are…I’ll be looking real hard for some here.

Remember that Sale-a-bration ends next Saturday, March 31st….this year has been one of the best for awesome stamps and accessories.  You can see it all HERE.

Birthday Blooms Gift Card Holder

Stampin Up Birthday Blooms Mini Treat Bag Gift Card Holder - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

I may have mentioned it a time or two but here it is again…I love this big flower image in the Birthday Blooms stamp set.  This set has been around for a few catalogs and it’s days may be numbered but it’s staying with me for a long time.

I used it on today’s project along with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits to create a gift card holder for a co-worker who was retiring.

Stampin Up Birthday Blooms Mini Treat Bag Gift Cards Holder - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

The treat bag is cut out using the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper which is a free product available only during Sale-a-bration.  This paper is simply gorgeous!

Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper #147193
Free with $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration

After stamping the flower image with Versa Mark ink, it was heat embossed with copper embossing powder and then colored using Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.  Coloring on an embossed image is so easy because the embossing creates a raised border which makes it easy to “stay in the lines”.  And the Stampin’ Blends go on so smooth and even.

Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, the bloom is adhered to a Delicate White doilie.  The doilie creates a pretty, feminine  backdrop.  The sentiment, from the Wild About Flowers stamp set, is also heat embossed in copper embossing powder.  It’s cut out with the smallest die from the Lots of Labels framelits.

Stampin Up Birthday Blooms Mini Treat Bag Gift Card Holder-Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

I created an inside card using Powder Pink and Very Vanilla card stock.  I don’t have the exact measurements as I’ve already given the card away. On one side, I created a pocket for the gift card and stamped another sentiment from the Wild About Flowers stamp set.  On the other side, the floral image is from the Bloomin Love stamp set and both are stamped in Soft Suede ink.  I left the back side blank so everyone could write a message to our co-worker.

Special Note:  Before gluing the Very Vanilla card stock to the back of the card, I cut another small label from Lots of Labels framelits, punched a small hole in the center and positioned it as a tab to pull the card from the treat bag.

I think that the Mini Treat Bags make such a perfect presentation for gift cards.  It’s almost like getting a present with the present!

Thanks very much for checking in today and I hope your having a happy hump day!

Take care,
