Last A Lifetime

 

Instructions

Cut Sahara Sand Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, and fold at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.

Cut a layer of Subtles 6X6 Designer Paper in Soft Sea Foam, 3 3/4″ X 5″.

Stamp the sentiment, “May the memories of today last a lifetime,” in Sahara Sand Ink on the Soft Sea Foam Layer. I used the Stamparatus for placement and ink coverage.

 

 

Use the Lasting Elegance Die corner die, and matching edge die, to cut from Whisper White Cardstock. When cutting, have the edge die touching the corner die, and cut at the same time.

Using your Stampin’ Trimmer, trim the border to fit the Soft Sea Foam layer, and use tiny, tiny, tiny dots of glue to attach.

 

I love this Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, which was my Host Code gift in June. Remember me telling you how you can make it any color you wish? After snipping the length I wanted for the long tails, I simply colored it with a Dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blend. Because these are alcohol markers, it dries quickly, and doesn’t rub off.

The ribbon is held securely by a dot of Tombow Glue beneath the knot.

For extra embellishment, I added five little pearls.

 

I was inspired by the Paper Players.

Basket Of Blooms for a Friend

A basket of flowers can stay fresh for a long time, when made with paper.

All you need is the Basket Of Blooms Stamp Set, and the Small Bloom Punch. I happen to have an extra Small Bloom Punch, and I will send it to the first person who places a 100.00 order with me, and contacts me with their name and address.

It won’t be hard to find $100.00 of items you want, because this is the day, August 4th, everyone can order from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog! Yipee!

Even if you aren’t my first customer to order, you’ll still receive my August Host Code Gift for a qualifying order, and a chance to win the drawing prize. You’ll find all the details below, plus instructions for today’s card.

Basket Of Blooms.

 

Instructions

First, make the tablecloth with the Buffalo Check Background Stamp. Place the stamp on the Stamparatus lid, apply Pear Pizzazz Ink and stamp on Pear Pizzazz Cardstock. I inked and stamped several times to get good coverage.

Cut a section with the long, rectangle die from Ornate Layers.

 

Stamp the basket from the Basket Of Blooms Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on Crumb Cake Cardstock. Fussy cut the basket, and color it with Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends.

Stamp five flowers in Bumblebee Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, color with a Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend, and use the Small Bloom Punch for cutting. I stamped the center with a tiny stamp from the retired stamp set, Thoughtful Blooms, and Cinnamon Cider Ink. If you don’t have the stamp set, you can improvise.

 

Use the Well Written Die to cut the word “friend” from Crumb Cake Cardstock. Be careful not to lose the “i.”

 

Make the card base with Crumb Cake Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.  Cut a layer from Whisper White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″.

Now that you have all the pieces, arrange them, so you can see where to stamp the six leaves, in Pear Pizazz Ink, on the white layer. Color the leaves with a Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend, and glue the layer to the card base.

Glue the tablecloth, “friend,” and one flower flat. Place the basket and four flowers on Mini Dimensionals, and attach.

Now all you need to do is decide which friend will be receiving this lovely “basket of blooms.”

Prized Peony In Gold for GDP252

I rarely design a single layer card with a single stamp set, but that’s what developed when “casing” Emma Goddard’s beautiful, sunflower card.

Highlighted today is the Prized Peony Stamp Set, and there’s a photo below that shows the shine from the gold, heat embossed, peony.

By Su Mohr for GDP Design Team; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Prized Peony stamp set, Gold heat embossing, Tasteful Textile embossing; #GDP25 #onelayercard #simplestamping #watercolorbackground #flowers #peonies #flowersoncards #prizedpeony #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting

Golden Peony

 

Instructions:

This fold is in a different direction than I normally make. Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 11″ X 4 1/4″, fold in the middle at 5 1/2″ to make your card base. Fun for a change, huh?

Cut regular weight, Whisper White Cardstock to 5 1/4″ X 4″. Using a Water Painter, dip your brush into Pear Pizzazz Ink, and swipe it across the middle of this layer several times. You may want to absorb excess water with a tissue, and let it dry for a bit.

Stamp three leaves in Pear Pizzazz Ink, stamping in the corner, without re-inking, to get the three shades. There’s also a fun texture stamp to add to the design.

 

 

Stamp the flower in VersaMark on the left side. I know it’s hard not to stamp the complete flower, but do it anyway. You’ll like the end results.

Sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder, and set with the Heat Tool.

Stamp the sentiment in Crumb Cake Ink. This color looks like gold, to coordinate with the flower.

 

 

The last step, if you like, is to emboss it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. It was an experiment, because I wasn’t sure what would happen to the gold embossing, but it turned out okay. Yay!

Now, can you see the shine?

Love Of Leaves Slimline Card

You only have two more days until August 4th, when you get to order from the new, August-December 2020 Mini Catalog! The Love Of Leaves Bundle and Plaid Tidings Designer Paper were at the top of my list, and as a Demonstrator, I was able to pre-order them last month.

I’m not bragging, because anyone can be a Demonstrator; you just need to join Stampin’ Up! You can click on my “join” button below, and become a member of my Dream Makers Team. We’d love to have you!

I must warn you that the Plaid Tidings Designer Paper has been extremely popular, so order first thing, before it goes on backorder. Remember the popularity of Madras in the sixties? Oh, how I loved it! This paper makes my heart skip a beat!

 

The plaid works beautifully as leaves, at least, I think so, especially when surrounded by stitching. And, they fit perfectly on this slimline card. You can follow my instructions to see how I made it, and my supplies are in the Product List below.

Leaves in plaid

 

Instructions

To make this slimline card, cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 7″ X 8 1/2″, and fold at 3 1/2″ for your card base. This size fits nicely in a standard 9 1/2″ X 4″ envelope.

Cut a Whisper White Cardstock layer, 3 1/4″ X 8 1/4″. Place the three leaf dies on the layer, and run it through the die-cutting machine.

 

Stamp “Hope Changes Everything” in Early Espresso Ink, and glue the layer to the card base.

 

Use the same leaf dies to cut from three patterns of Plaid Tidings Designer Paper.

Glue the leaves in the holes. You’ll see this referred to as the “inlay technique.” Clean & simple, right?

 

I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.

A Square Card for August 1

On this first day of August, I want to thank all of my customers for their orders, and congratulate Marilyn K. as the winner of my drawing prize, the Prized Peony Bundle! I will send a pack of Vellum Doilies to everyone who placed a qualifying $50.00 order, as soon as I receive my shipment from Stampin’ Up! Woo Hoo!

I think you’re really going to like this month’s Host Code Gift…………the Greenery Embossing Folders! It should be really easy to qualify, because you get to order from the new, August-December 2020 Mini Catalog, beginning August 4th.

 

Now, for today’s card. This was my first play with the Stitched Triangles, and I combined them with Poppy Moments for a “clean & simple” card. I designed this as a “square” card, with easy instructions below.

By Su Mohr; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Stitched Triangle Dies; Rainbow Glimmer Paper, Vellum Cardstock, Poppy Moments Dies, Ornate Floral embossing, Beautiful Moments Stamp Set; #stitchedtriangles #squarecard #poppymoments #poppiesoncards #poppies #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting

Stitched Triangles

 

Instructions

Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 4 1/4″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″, making your square card base.

Use the largest Stitched Triangle to cut two triangles from Whisper White Cardstock.

 

Emboss the top triangle with the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder, and stamp the bottom triangle with the sentiment from the Beautiful You Stamp set.  Many sentiments would be appropriate, but I liked the font of this one, and the way it filled the space.

Glue the triangles to the card front, leaving the larger border on the right and bottom. 

 

Cut the poppy from Rainbow Glimmer Paper, using the Poppy Moments flower outline die.

Use the solid flower die to cut Vellum Cardstock, and glue the two together in the middle.

Cut the stamen from Basic Black Cardstock, glue on top of the poppy, and attach the poppy to the card front with Dimensionals.

 

This square size is really nice, because it fits in our medium envelopes. And, isn’t it fun for a change?

I’m entering my design in the Fab Friday challenge.
