How To Do Easy Spotlight Card

SAVI Sunday 53 - How To Do Easy Spotlight Card

Welcome to Episode 53 of my YouTube Series... SAVI Sunday (stamping & various inspiration).  You can click the above link to watch my video or see it posted below.  Make sure you are subscribed to my channel while you are watching. 

So my Spotlight card features the below items.  Two I know for sure will be retiring in a few short weeks; True Love Designer Series Paper and the Purple Posy Blends Combo Pack.  But I am in fear of a favorite die set going too... the Well Written Dies.  This die set has 24 dies!  14 of them are words like I am using below.  We will be finding out this week (March 24, 2021) what is retiring from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog so stay tuned.

Let's take a look at my card:

PicsArt_03-21-02.17.53

I love a black-n-white design but I think adding just a splash of color adds so much to it.  

Card Details:

  • Basic Black card stock base 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored and folded at 4-1/4"
  • True Love DSP cut 4 x 5-1/4"
  • Die cut a square of the DSP any where you would like (just leave a bit for a boarder)
  • Color image with Blends
  • Take next larger square die and cut a piece of Basic Black CS
  • Adhere colored DSP square to above piece of black cardstock
  • Adhere square with Dimensionals
  • Die cut words from Well Written Dies (Make sure to use our Adhesive Sheets!)
  • Adhere to basic white, fussy dies around words & adhere to card front
  • Don't forget some Rhinestones for some bling

I told you this was an easy spotlight card.  Don't you agree?  And the True Love Designer Series Paper is just fantastic for this.  

Don't forget, you can add as much, as little or No color at all and still end up with a beautiful card.

3D Bag - Fine Art Floral

Welcome to my SAVI Sunday 52:  a 3D Bag project today, featuring the Fine Art Floral Suite. 

PicsArt_03-14-04.28.22

For the bag, you will need two sheets of 12 x 12 Designer Series paper.

  • with your design facing upright, score across the top at 3/4, 1-5/8 and 2-5/8"
  • all other sides, score at 2-1/2"
  • do this with both sheets of paper
  • make sure to fold and burnish all your scored lines
  • one sheet:  cut out or eliminate all four corners
  • one the second sheet: 
    • cut out/eliminate both corners with the multiple score lines just as you did on the first sheet. 
    • then, turn your paper so the three score lines are at the top.
    • at the bottom corners, cut on score lines from the sides and miter the cut
    • this will create a tab at the bottom two corners
    • trim those tabs down by half (no precise measurement needed)
  • layer both sheets of paper in front of you, having the design that you want on the outside of your bag facing the table and having the three score lines facing in opposite direction.

Maybe this part will be easier to see on MY VIDEO.  Take a watch.

TAG:  you will need some Basic White CS, piece of DSP piece of Art Floral Acetate, scraps of Basic White for label and words, and Mossy Meadow

  • Basic White cut 2-7/8 x 5"
  • Fine Art Floral DSP  and Acetate both cut 2-3/4 x 4-3/4" (adhere acetate to DSP with glue dots)
  • Die Cut label from Fine Art Floral DSP.  I used Tasteful Label Dies
  • Die cut leaves from Mossy Meadow CS
  • Stamp floral image with Melon Mambo (2-step stamping), then with VersaMark Ink, Heat & Stock Powder, heat then add Gold Gilded Leafing and die cut
  • As the floral will be too pink, I used the Blending Brushes to blend Poppy Parade ink over top.
  • Adhere leaves and flower to label
  • Stamp words in Black Memento ink and die cut from Floral Gallery Dies, use Mini Dimensionals to adhere

I had so much fun creating this one.  Give it a try and let me know how yours turns out!

PicsArt_03-07-05.36.35

But I wanted to share some alternative projects making the cards my own with only adding a few pieces of other cardstock.

Card 1 & 2:  I took the Paper Pumpkin card base that is Rococo Rose and I cut in half.  One of those halves, I then cut in half again.  I adhered these to Basic Black card base cardstock 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 and built the rest of cards with items from the Paper Pumpkin kit.

PicsArt_03-07-05.40.41

Card 3: is the Just Jade stripped Paper Pumpkin card base but I reversed the card so the strips are on the side.  I stamped the floral image

PicsArt_03-07-05.43.36

Cards 4 & 5:  I took a the Paper Pumpkin Card and cut in half, and cut them down to 4 x 5-1/4" then mounted to Rococo Rose cardstock.

I just loved coming up with alternatives for this month's kit.

Hey Chick! SAVI Sunday 49

Savi Sunday - Featuring the Hey Chick Bundle

What a fun stamp and die set!!!  So the Chick Chick was a free Sale-a-Bration earn from 2017 and it was so crazy popular, Stampin' Up! decided to bring it back with coordinating dies!  

Let's take a look at what I came up with.... which I am so excited about:

PicsArt_02-14-05.36.07

Isn't that cute!  The corn and stalks, and the chick coop.... oh my!

Before I give you all the cute dimensions and colors, but sure to use our Adhesive Sheets on all the dies cuts.  It is truly a saver of patience when trying to adhere down all those tiny pieces.  

Card Details:

  • Thick Basic White card base cut 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
  • Basic Black CS cut 3-1/2 x 5
  • Pool Party CS cut 3-3/8 x 4-7/8
  • Silver Foil Sheet piece for fence 1-1/2 x 3
  • Real Red CS for chicken coop 2 x 2-3/4
  • Scrap Daffodil Delight CS for corn
  • Garden Green CS 3-1/2 x 4 to cut stalks & bottom of corn (husks)
  • Very Vanilla CS 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 for sign and chicken
  • Early Espresso CS 1-1/2 x 1-3/4 for sign

I colored the chicken with Stampin' Blends in Crumb Cake Light & Dark, then used Dark Poppy Parade and Dark Mango Melody for his waddle, top and beak.

I cut one piece of fencing and cut in half lengthwise and then over lapped to get a continuous look.
