Peaceful Prints Noel

Today I created a card using the bold Playful Alphabet Dies and the gorgeous Peaceful Prints DSP. This is the perfect combo since the purchase of the Alphabet Dies, Black and White Gingham Ribbon, and Matte Black Dots earns you the DSP for FREE right now!

I also love a good no stamping card once in a while. These are perfect to put together in front of the TV – I don’t need to worry about dropping an ink pad.

To put this card together, I cut a piece of 4″ X 5-1/4″ DSP, then I cut it at the 2-1/4″ mark. I flipped the top half over and glued both DSP pieces to a Real Red card base (8-1/2″ X 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″). Then I die cut the letters NOEL in a piece of 1-3/4″ X 3-3/4″ Basic White cardstock. I tied a ribbon around the bottom of the white outline piece and attached it to the card front with Dimensionals. I finished off the card by embellishing with Matte Black Dots.

Quick and easy!

Peaceful Prints Puppy Card

The FREE Sale-a-bration reward – Peaceful Prints DSP – is amazing! All of the patterns are beautiful and create such unique card designs. Here I have paired it up with the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set.

To add a bit of bling tot he card I used the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper to mat the circle and some Holiday Rhinestones as the holly berries.

Peaceful Prints DSP Gift Bag

For some of you it may be too early to think about Christmas – but I actually try to get the bulk of my Christmas cards made in the summer when I have time to enjoy the creative process. Then I can use the holidays to just spend time with friends and family. Right now I have even more reason to play with Christmas product – the 2nd part of Sale-a-bration 2021 is happening right now! Which means for every $60cdn purchase made at Stampin’ Up! right now you can earn FREE product.

This fabulous Peaceful Prints 12X12 DSP is just one of the great offerings.

I am usually a Designer Series Paper hoarder – but I am running out of room on my shelves, so time to start crafting with it. During my weekly FB live today I demonstrated how to create this sweet gift bag – perfect for holding some handmade cards or a fabulous little gift.

To create the bag you simply need 2 pieces of DSP (any size 6X6 – 12X12 will do) I used a 10X10 pieces.

Then I scored the top edges at 1-1/2″ and I scored the other 3 edges of each piece at 2″.

Next I cut out the two bottom squares on one of my pieces. and I cut the two bottom score lines on the other piece.

Glue the two pieces together at the bottom flap, and then fold up the box and glue the sides together.

For a better understanding of these instructions you can check out my video below.

To create the cute label on the bag I used the largest Seasonal Label Die, the Peaceful Deer stamp set for the sentiment and the Deer Punch and Peaceful Prints DSP for the images. You’ll have to watch my video to see the trick I used to punch out the reverse deer image. It’s brilliant!

Product List
Paper Trimmer
$34.00
Simply Scored
$41.00

I hope you love creating these bags in all different sizes as much as I do. They are quick, easy and sturdy.

Penguin Playmates Birthday Card

Today I created a fun birthday card using the new Penguin Place bundle and some FREE Penguin Playmates DSP. You can earn your own DSP by purchasing $60cdn during Sale-a-bration. See the full supplies list below, or shop here: http://bit.ly/shopwithleahdixon

The card uses just a few pieces:

Fresh Freesia cardbase: 8.5″ X 5.5, scored at 8.25″

Penguin Playmates DSP: 2 pieces 1″ X 5.5″

Basic White cardstock: 2.25″ X 5.5″ and a scrap for the balloon if you want to pop it up

You can watch the video below for all the details – but here are the two tips I shared today.

Use blends to colour the Playing With Patterns Resin Dots so they coordinate with the Penguin Playmates DSP.
The small balloon in the retired Balloon Punch coordinates with the balloon in the Penguin Place stamp set.

I am also really happy with how the bow turned out. I rarely have such great success tying a bow on screen! You have to check it out.

Be Dazzling Snowflakes

The FREE Be Dazzling Specialty Paper from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Brochure adds a sparkle to any project! I used it today on this Sketch Challenge card inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.

Penguin Playmates DSP

Today’s card was created using some FREE Sale-a-bration DSP and a Freshly Made Sketch. YOU can earn this DSP for free as well by placing an order of $60+ between Aug 3 – Sep 30. This is my FAVOURITE time of the year!

The only part that is stamped is the sentiment from one of the soon to released stamp sets – Christmas To Remember. The rest is DSP that is cut into rectangles and the bear was fussy cut.

I used Opal Rounds as an accent, the fabulous Glittered Organdy Ribbon, and some Wink of Stella on the tummy, paws and ears of the polar bear. A little bit of sparkle always perks up a card.

Contact me if you have any questions about Sale-a-bration, and get your wishlist ready so you can start ordering on Aug 3rd. πŸ™‚
