For the Love of Takeout Treats

Create a love card with Stampin Up Takeout Treats heart die - Mary Fish StampinUp Idea

Today’s card has a fresh, fall palette (Merry Merlot, Pumpkin Pie and Mint Macaron) and proves just how versatile the Takeout Treats stamp set and coordinating Takeout Thinlits Dies are.  This “love” card is a perfect surprise for my daughter, Caroline, to receive in the mail.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base with the Stampin’ Trimmer and Stampin’ Up! Thick Very Vanilla card stock.  I love the switch to Very Vanilla for fall and thick card stock has more “heft” for a card base (as well as the hearts).

Create three flagged elements.  1 7/8″ wide x 5 1/4 (stripe pattern from Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper), 1 1/2 x 4 1/2 (Mint Macaron card stock), 1 x 4 7/8 (Pumpkin Pie card stock).  Crop the flagged end for each using the Stampin’ Up! Banner Triple Punch.  Layer and adhere to card base with Snail Adhesive as shown.

Using the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool (learn why you need one here), stamp the “love you lots” sentiment (Takeout Treats stamp set) in Jet Black Stazon on a 3 3/4 x 3 1/2 piece of Thick Very Vanilla card stock.  

Using the Stamparatus, stamp the heart pattern (TakeoutTreats stamp set) in Pumpkin Pie ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  Crop the heart with the coordinating heart die from Takeout Thinlits Dies, the Big Shot and the Magnetic Platform (to keep the image in place)..

Create a love card with Stampin Up Takeout Treats heart die - Mary Fish StampinUpWith the same heart die (Takeout Thinlits Dies) and the big shot, crop a heart from the same Merry Merlot stripe (Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper) and Mint Macaron card stock.

Adhere a piece of Crumb Cake Nature’s Twine as shown to the 3 3/4 x 3 1/2 piece and anchor with Glue Dots.  Adhere hearts as shown with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Tie two bows with Crumb Cake Nature’s Twine and adhere on ends with Glue Dots.

Add a touch of bling with Faceted Dots (black) on the Mint Macaron heart and before the sentiment.  Adhere the 3 3/4 x 3 1/2 piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals to card base.

The finishing touch is an envelope liner.  Crop a Pumpkin Pie polka dot pattern from Regals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper using the Big Shot and envelope liner die from Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive (or adhesive or your choice) to the inside of a Stampin’ Up! Very Vanilla Medium Envelope.

Pleasant Pheasants – Fabulous for Fall!

Create a fall Thanksgiving card using Stampin Up Pleasant Pheasants - Mary Fish StampinUp Ideas

Today’s Pleasant Pheasants card is fabulous for fall and Thanksgiving cards.  Change the sentiment and it’s a versatile, masculine card, too. 

Pleasant Pheasants Stamp Set

The bold, Night of Navy brad on the sentiment reminds me of when I first started stamping in 2005 and brads were a key embellishment on my projects.  Now there are so many choices but a brad always makes a statement!

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card base with Night of Navy card stock and the Stampin’ Trimmer.

Use the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and the Stampin’ Up! Corrugated Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder to “crimp” a 5 x 3 3/4 piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  Adhere to card base using Snail Adhesive.  TIP:  Run the dynamic embossing folder back and forth through the Big Shot for a deeper impression.

Using the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool, stamp the pheasants from Pleasant Pheasants stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a 3 1/2 x 3 piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  Layer and adhere on a 3 3/4 x 3 1/4 piece of Night of Navy card stock. 

Crop Night of Navy card stock twice with the Stampin’ Up! Sprig Punch and adhere with Snail Adhesive to the right side of the pheasant layer.  Adhere ALL with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card base.

Using the Stamparatus, stamp Happy Thanksgiving from Pleasant Pheasants stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a 2 5/8 x 5/8 piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  I used the Tailored Tag Punch to crop the flagged end on the right side.

Add a Night of Navy Brad (Stampin’ Up! Basic Brads) to the left side and adhere sentiment as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use a Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, envelope liner die (Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies) and a pine cone pattern from All is Bright Designer Series Paper to create a liner.  Adhere to the inside of a Stampin’ Up! Very Vanilla Medium Envelope.
