Stampin Up Laser-cut card ideas

As you are reading this, I’ll be enjoying a weekend away stamping with 65 of my Stampin’ Up! friends!! While at Amy’s Vintage Valentine Retreat this weekend, I’ll be demonstrating some ideas for using these wonderful Stampin’ Up! Laser-cut cards!

I’ll be sharing more of the cards from my presentation over the coming week.  Today I wanted to highlight the difference between adding a light or a dark liner inside the card.  It’s amazing what a dramatic difference it makes when you add a dark liner or insert inside the laser-cut card!!   I applied a piece of Basic Gray cardstock using Mulitpurpose Liquid Glue  to the back side of the laser-cut card front for this Magnolia card.  Laser-cut cards available online here.

I die cut the magnolias out of the Magnolia Lane designer paper using the Magnolia Memory dies

Thanks was stamped in Basic Gray ink onto a Very Vanilla die cut from the Wild Rose die set and added to the front of the card, then I layered the die cut magnolias on top and tucked behind the die cut.  Thanks is from the Seriously the Best stamp set.

Dark vs. Light

To show a contrast and another way to use the Laser-cut cards, this card uses a piece of Perennial Essence designer paper behind the laser-cut card front.  This gives a really soft effect.   I added a die cut butterfly (from Springtime Impressions dies) to the card.  It was die cut from Watercolor paper, colored with Brusho or Pigment Sprinkles, and then dipped into a versamark pad and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

The Blushing Bride swirly circle, and the sentiment label are from the Painted Labels dies, and the thinking of you sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy using the Peaceful Moments stamp set.

Earlier this month, Stampin’ UP! introduced the Special Days Dies #153587 which coordinate with the Special Someone stamp set in the Jan-June 2020 Mini catalog #151643.  This cute racoon reminds me of the racoons that come into our yard at night.. they forage around for seeds and peanuts left by our squirrels and birds, and they like to bathe in the bird bath!

My Valentine card idea is a Real Red cardstock base, with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of printed heart paper from the “From my Heart” designer paper pack #151189.  I layered a heart doily, a punched heart from the same designer paper pack, a stitched scalloped rectangle from the Stitched so Sweetly dies, and another white label from the Painted Labels dies under the racoon die cut.  The Valentine greeting is from the Heart to Heart stamp set, stamped in Real Red onto a Stitched Rectangle.

Best Crafting Tip I’ve heard in a LONG time!

Over the weekend I attended a wonderful card class featuring the Peaceful Poppies suite! We made 10 cards and received lots of great products to use and take home!  Kurstan hosted this class and I learned the BEST TIP from her!! 

We used a lot of Peaceful Poppies Sequins on our projects, and I always use a dot of Liquid Glue to hold my sequins on my project.  It always bothered me that the dot of white glue showed through the little hole in the center of the sequin.. well… Kurstan suggested coloring it in with the matching Stampin’ Blends marker once the glue was dry!

BRILLIANT!!

 

Craft Tip for Sequins! Color the dried glue that shows thru the center of the sequin with a matching Stampin' Blends marker!! compliments of Kurstan!

 

It’s funny how this just this one crafting tip made all the difference in the world for me!!  I really hesitated using sequins until I learned this tip!!  I really didn’t like the white center.. but now I love how the sequins look!!!  Even if you use a glue dot, you’ll still want to color in the center to match the sequin 🙂   Thanks, Kurstan!!!
