Trio of seasonal cards by Stampin' With Pixie featuring the Stampin' Up! Making Every Day Bright stamp set.

Short But Sweet

A short post today to share a peek at the Making Every Day Bright stamp set year-round creative possibilities. I’m not going to provide too much tutorial detail today.  I broke a finger very badly last weekend so typing is quite difficult.  Hopefully, things will heal quickly and I can share the How-To at a later date.

Two Stars In This Show

There are two stars in today’s post.  The headliner is the Making Every Day Bright stamp set.

Making Every Day Bright Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! includes 27 stamps to create seasonal lights and decorative accents.

This stamp set contains a whopping 27 stamps with something for every season of the year,  It’s designed to coordinate with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch that is part of the Making Christmas Bright Bundle.

Stampin' Up! Making Christmas Bright Bundle including the Making Christmas Bright Stamp Set and the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.

Did you notice that a Bundle and an additional stamp set are all designed to work together?  That’s triple the fun, triple the creativity!  You’re not limited to just lightbulbs either.  See the cute little penguin, rabbit and feathers – you can make cute critters, leaves, flowers etc with just a little imagination.

Today’s Projects: Three Holidays – One Set

All cards are 4″x4″ with the same basic layout give or take a layer.  Currently available products are listed at the end of this post.  The Making Christmas Bright stamp set, Making Every Day Bright stamp set and Christmas Bulb Builder Punch will be available when the Holiday Catalog goes live on September 5th.  If you would like to get a free hardcopy of the catalog become a Stampin’ With Pixie customer.  How’s how.

Halloween

Halloween card by Stampin' With Pixie made using the Stampin' Up! Making Every Day Bright stamp set.

The inspiration for this card came from a Valentine/Love/Friendship card in the Holiday catalog.  Loved the monotone repeating pattern and the pop of the white bulb.  Isn’t the 1/4″ mini strip ribbon in Gorgeous Grape yummy?  Tip:  the Stamparatus makes it easy to do the repeating pattern even with 2-step stamping.

Thanksgiving

Are they feathers or flower petals?  They’re anything you want them to be.  You are not limited to making bulbs with the awesome Making Every Day Bright stamp set.  Another sneak peek – the leaves are from another new Framelits set called In The Woods.  Stunning dies that coordinate with a beautiful stamp set called Winter Woods.  Both are also available as the Winter Woods Bundle (save 10%).  But wait there’s more!  The Winter Woods Bundle coordinates with the Rooted In Nature Bundle in the Annual Catalog!!!

Christmas/Winter

Stampin' With Pixie Especially For You Gift Card made using Stampin' Up! Tea Room Designer Series Paper, Memories & More Card Pack and Tea Room Ribbon Combo.

 

Mini Size Card Super Size Fun Maximum Wow

I really love mini cards.  They are fun and easy to make but pack a big Wow factor.  Who could ask for more?  This card is featured in the 2018 Annual Catalog on the Tea Room Suite pages.  I liked the original design but decided to change it up a bit by:

  • Using the Botanical Bliss Stamp Set for the sentiment and border

Stampin' Up! Botanical Bliss stamp set featuring 5 floral images, 1 bird image and 5 sentiment stamps.

  • Adding a die cut butterfly and dressing it up a bit with Clear Wink Of Stella.  The die cut butterfly comes from the Tea Room Memories & More Card Pack.

Stampin' Up! Tea Room Memories & More Card Pack containing 50 double-sided cards (2 each in 24 designs) in mixed sizes and media types.

  • Adding a decorated envelope using the Tea Room Specialty DSP and Whisper White 3″x3″ Envelopes.

Coordinating colors guide for the Stampin' Up! Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper collection. Seven coordinating Stampin' Up! colors are shown as pawprints beneath an image containing a collage of the designs in the collection.

Instructions

To Make The Card
  1. Make a 3″x3″ card base using Whisper White cardstock.
  2. Use the Botanical Bliss stamp set and Crushed Curry Classic Stampin’ ink to stamp a border along the top and bottom edges of the card front.
  3. Fussy cut the flower bouquet from a piece of the Tea Room Specialty DSP and punch a butterfly and a few tiny flowers out of the die cut sheets in the Tea Room Memories & More Card Pack.
  4. Adhere the flower bouquet and die cut flowers to the card front.  Step it up idea:  adhere the flower bouquet to a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Fussy cut it again and pop it up on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The cardstock will give it added strength so it won’t buckle when popped up.  Pop up some of the die cut flowers if you like.
  5. Use Clear Wink of Stella to add sparkle to the butterfly wings.  Let it dry and set aside.
  6. Stamp the “Especially For You” sentiment on a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock.  Heat emboss it using Whisper White Stampin’ Emboss powder and a heat tool.  Die cut out the embossed sentiment using a tag die of your choice.
  7. Cut a length of 1/8″ Coastal Cabana/Copper ribbon from the Tea Room Ribbon Combo.  Fold it a few times or create a bow.  Adhere it to the card front at an angle.
  8. Pop up the tag on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Pop up the butterfly using two layers of mini Stampin’ Dimensionals so that it appears to be sitting on the edge of the tag.
To Make The Envelope
  1. Place the envelope flap face down on the back of a piece of coordinating Tea Room Specialty DSP.  Trace it and cut it out.  Flip it over and adhere it to the card flap.
  2. Alternatively – cut a piece of the coordinating Tea Room Specialty DSP that is slightly larger than the flap.  Adhere it with multipurpose glue.  Let it dry and trim it to fit the flap.

An Alternative Design Ideas

Alternative designs for the Especially For You Gift Card include:

  • Adhere a piece of vellum over the card front after you adhere the flower bouquet (Step 4).
  • Use a piece of embossed acetate from the Tea Room Memories & More Card Pack instead of the vellum.  if you use the embossed vellum consider skipping the stamped border if the designs conflict.
  • Use elements from the Tea Room Copper Vinyl Stickers to create the border and/or to decorate the butterflies and tag.
