Quiet Meadow in Sepia

Quiet Meadow is one of my favorite bundles from Stampin’ Up’s, new, 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. I thought the images would be beautiful in sepia. But, what is sepia? This is what Siri tells us: it’s “a reddish-brown color associated particularly with monochrome photographs of the 19th and early 20th centuries.”

Meadow In Sepia

 

To achieve the sepia look, I began with a Thick Very Vanilla card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. I layered this with very Vanilla Cardstock that I stamped in Soft Suede Ink, using two stamps from the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set; the barely legible words, and random dots.

Before gluing the layer to the card base, I gave it texture with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

 

Next, I stamped the flowers in Soft Suede Ink on a 2″ strip of Very Vanilla Cardstock, and used the Banner Triple Punch for the bottom. After brushing the edge with Soft Suede Ink on a Sponge Dauber, I attached the banner with Dimensionals. I used long, left-over strips of Dimensionals, so it would be well supported.

My meadow needed butterflies, and there are two in the Meadow Die Set, which you have seen in the first photo. They received the Sponge Dauber treatment, and I added them to the scene.

 

The word, “love'” is from the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set, and fits perfectly in its Meadow die-cut. I tied Linen Thread through the hole, and attached it with a Dimensional.

 

 

I was inspired by Freshly made Sketches.

Party Puffins When You Want To Make Someone Happy

The cute, little, puffling, from the Party Puffins Stamp Set, is making another appearance. He was upset that he didn’t get to show off his fish, so I promised it would be on my next card.

By Su Mohr for PP; Click aromasandart to go to my web site for details! Featuring: Party Puffins Stamp Set, Scalloped Contours Dies, Neutrals 6X6 Designer Paper, Playful Pets Trim Ribbon, Painted Texture embossing; #puffins #partypuffins #puffinsoncards #birds #scallopedcontours #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stampinup #sumohr #aromasandart #happycards

Puffin Happiness

 

The first thing I did was stamp the puffling (a baby puffin), and his fish, in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock.  After cutting them free, I used Stampin’ Blends, for a small bit of coloring, in Smoky Slate and Real Red.

 

For the background, I used a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.  This was layered with Neutrals 6″X6″ Designer Paper in Basic Gray, cut with the largest, Scalloped Contours Die. This exact pattern is retired, but you can see the new patterns in my Product List below.

The top layer is Basic White Cardstock, cut with the third largest, Scalloped Contours Die. 

 

Before attaching the white layer with Dimensionals, I embossed it with the Painted Texture Embossing Folder, and tied ribbon around the top. The puffling thought I should add the ribbon to match the pretty ribbon around his fish. The two ribbons come in a combo pack, and seemed perfect for this card, so I agreed.

The sentiment is from the Party Puffin Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with the smallest Scalloped Contours Die. The puffling hopped on the label, not forgetting his fish, and I attached it with Dimensionals. I was happy that the scalloped edge of the label fit the layer beneath perfectly.

 

I was inspired by the colors at the Paper Players.

Artistically Inked Bundle

I’ve been looking forward to playing with the Artistically Inked Bundle, and today is the day. The fact that it’s on the cover of the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is an indication that it was expected to be a winner. There is a digital copy of the catalog, under my profile picture, that you can download to your computer. 

 

I was excited to get started, and used an Artistic Die to cut the leaves from Thick Basic White Cardstock. Then, I stamped an Artistically Inked flower in Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight Inks on Basic White Cardstock, and used its Artistic Die for cutting. 

Don’t you love the watercolored look? And, it’s so easy!

Featuring Artistically Inked Stamp Set, Artistic Dies, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Meadow Moments Embossing Folders; #artisticallyinked #artisticdies #meadowmoments #stitchedrectangles #thankyoucards #watercoloredflowers #flowers #flowersoncards #thankyoucards #sumohr #aromasandart #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting

Artistically Inked

 

The background for my flowers and leaves was easy also. I began with a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I used three Stitched Rectangles Dies, so measuring wasn’t required. I used the largest one to cut from black & white, True Love Designer Paper, the second largest to cut from Magenta Madness Cardstock, and the third largest to cut from Basic White Cardstock.

 

Next, I stamped “thanks,” from the Artistically Inked Stamp Set, in Stazon Black Ink.

 

Prior to glueing the layers together, I used a Meadow Moments Embossing Folder on the white layer to add some texture. The narrow size of this embossing folder fits the third largest, Stitched Rectangle, perfectly.

Finally, I attached the leaves and flowers with a bit of glue and a few Dimensionals. The leaves on the ends were glued, but the middle leaves were left free to lift around the flowers.

If you’re wondering, the paper I used for photographing is one of the gorgeous designs of Expressions In Ink Designer Paper.

 

I was inspired by the colors at TGIF.
