Painted Poppies

 

Here is Manuela’s card, using the Snailed It Bundle. I love how the snail is in the vellum envelope! Check out the other projects, then join us in casing Manuela!

I began with a Thick Basic White card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″), topped with angled, Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Paper (3 3/4″ X 5″) in Night Of Navy.

The Basic White Cardstock, angled on top ( 3 1/2″ X 4 3/4″) was embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder. This embossing folder is retiring the end of May, so get it now while it’s still available.

 

Next, I stamped the flowers from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set in Night Of Navy Ink on Basic White Cardstock. I colored them with Petal Pink ink and a “splotch” stamp in the set, and they were easily cut with Painted Labels Dies. You can see the two dies in the first picture, and in my Product List below.

Then, I cut the leaves from Soft Sea Foam Cardstock with two Poppy Moments Dies. The smaller flower and leaves were glued flat, and the larger flower was attached with Dimensionals.

 

“Hey, friend” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, stamped in Night Of Navy Ink, and cut with the smallest Stitched So Sweetly Die. I attached the sentiment with Dimensionals, added three Pearl Basic Jewels, and my project was complete.

Sneak Peek of Pansy Patch

Pansy Patch just might be the #1 pick in the entire 2021-2022 Annual Catalog!  I pre-ordered the entire suite, and today’s card just gives you a tiny peek at all it has to offer.

Pansy Patch

 

The pansies and leaves you see were cut directly from the Designer Paper, using the Pansy Dies.  This is a dream come true for those who don’t enjoy coloring, and look at the gorgeous colors! Yes, you are looking at some new In-Colors, which I’ll elaborate on in another post.

I must add, the stamp set has 23 stamps, so those who like to stamp and color, can do so to their heart’s content.

 

After cutting the 9 pansies and 6 leaves from the paper, I arranged them in three rows. Each pansy received a Dimensional, and 6 pansies received a leaf, attached with a Mini Dimensional. Then, I attached them to a background of Basic White Cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″), embossed with the Painted Texture Embossing Folder.

 

The card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″) is a fabulous dark green. Okay, I’ll tell you, it’s  Evening Evergreen, one of the 5 new In Colors. 

I used Evening Evergreen Ink for the sentiment, also. “Thank you” is from the Pansy Patch Stamp Set, and cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die.

 

My layout is from Freshly made Sketches.

My Product List isn’t very colorful, because the Pansy Patch products can’t be linked to my store until they are available on May 4th. Sorry, this is just whetting your appetite.


Product List

Silhouette Scenes in the Dandy Garden

If you like silhouettes on cards, the Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set is one you have to get, before it retires the end of May. One of my favorite images is the swinging girl. You can see the complete set in my Product List below.

"By

 

This card has lots of dimension, and begins with a Misty Moonlight card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.  The blue & white stripe is Dandy Garden Designer Paper, cut 1/16″ smaller than the card front. The floral paper is also Dandy Garden, cut 3 3/4 X 5 3/8″, and backed with cardstock for thickness.

After gluing the floral paper and cardstock together, I used a Layering Ovals Die ( 2 3/4″ across) to cut a hole in the middle, a little closer to the top. Then, I added lots of Foam Adhesive Strips to the back, and attached it to the card front.

 

Next, I stamped the swinging girl, from the Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink, on Basic White Cardstock, using the Stamparatus to insure good stamping. After cutting, and adding pieces of Foam Adhesive Strips, I attached her inside the oval. I used Foam Adhesive Strips, because they are twice as high as Dimensionals, and I wanted her to be the same elevation as the floral paper.

 

“Happy Day” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, stamped in Versamark on Misty Moonlight Cardstock, sprinkled with White Embossing Powder, and set with the Heat Tool. I used the smallest Stitched So Sweetly Die for cutting the label, and the bee was cut from another pattern of Dandy Garden Designer Paper. 

The Layering Oval Dies, and the Itty Bitty Greeting Stamp Set, are also retiring the end of May, and the Dandy Garden Designer Paper is retiring the end of June. So, get them while you can.

 

 I was inspired by Fab Friday.

Quiet Meadow Sneak Peek

Your 2021-2022 Annual catalogs should be arriving soon, so today’s card is a sneak peek of one of my favorites. Because I was able to pre-order the Quiet Meadow Bundle, I jumped on it!

April Showers

 

It’s always exciting to play with new product, and a color challenge can add to creative thinking.

 

 

I began with a Crumb Cake card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, topped with Neutrals 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper, cut 1/8″ smaller than the card front.

The first Meadow die-cut was used as a stencil, with Misty Moonlight Ink and a Blending Brush, on Basic White Cardstock, 3 3/4″ X 5″. I used a second die to cut a branch from Thick Basic White Cardstock, and glued it to the right of the stenciled plant. The third die was used to cut a butterfly from Thick Basic White Cardstock, colored with Merry Merlot Ink and A Blending Brush, and attached with Dimensionals.

 

 

The sentiment, “Thinking of You” is from the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set, stamped in Crumb Cake Ink, and cut with a Meadow Die. I used those cute, little holes to tie on the tag with Linen Thread. The tag is actually attached with Dimensionals, and two strands of Linen Thread are taped to the back.

I almost forgot to tell you, the Misty Moonlight dots were created with a Quiet Meadow Stamp, a neat way to add some splash. And, the new catalog has Clear Epoxy Raindrop Shapes, so I brought mine out of retirement.

This is just a hint of what the Quiet Meadow Bundle has to offer, and I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek. I should also tell you, the Meadow Dies works well with the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, which I included in my Product List below.

 

 

I was inspired by the Paper Players.

Birthday Sorbet for the Pals Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Great Family Occasions.”We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

My family has a bunch of birthdays in the Spring, so it’s birthday celebrations galore! Why not celebrate with a quadruple-decker sorbet cone?

By Su Mohr for the Pals Blog Hop; Click aromasandart to go to my web site for details! Featuring: Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set, Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch, True Love Designer Paper, Tasteful Textile embossing; #sorbet #sherbet #icecream #sweeticecream #icecreamconepunch #birthdaycards #slimlinecards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart #celebrationcards

Sorbet Birthday

 

To accommodate my tall ice cream cone, I used a slimline card design; Thick Basic White Cardstock 7″ X 8″, folded at 3 1/2″. Then, I layered the card front with True Love Designer Paper, 3 1/4″ X 7 3/4″. Next, I cut a layer of Thick Basic White Cardstock, 1/8″ smaller, giving it a 1/16″ black & white border. I used “thick,” so the black & white print wouldn’t be visible through it.

Prior to gluing the layers together, I used the Stamparatus to stamp the sentiments in Stazon Black Ink. “Happy Birthday” and “treat yourself” are from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set.

Now, for the really fun part, stamping the sorbet. I used the stamp, from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set, to stamp the scoops in four, fruity colored inks: Flirty Flamingo (strawberry), Granny Apple Green (lime), Daffodil Delight (lemon), and Pumpkin Pie (orange). Which flavor do you like best?

 

After stamping, I used the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch for cutting; so easy, and so fun! The cone was made with Crumb Cake Cardstock, the tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, and the same Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch.

 

The last detail was finding some coordinating colors of Sequins to add some sparkle to my birthday card. I’m ready to celebrate!

 

Now, all that’s needed is a slimline envelope. I’ve been using regular, legal-sized envelopes, but decided to try making one with designer paper.

I cut 12″ X 12″ True Love Designer Paper into a piece, 9 1/2″ X 10 1/2″. Then, I scored the bottom at 4″ and the top at 2 1/4″. I added Stampin’ Seal along the two sides of the bottom portion, and closed it, making a pocket. I’ll add Stampin’ Seal to the top flap, when I’m ready to seal it.

TIP: Score gently, so you don’t cut through the paper. This same design could be used for cards of all sizes. Just make sure there’s enough width, so the card will slide in and out easily after gluing the sides, and the pocket is tall enough to cover the card.

 

I used an address label on the back. The pretty paper makes up for the lack of fancy angles, don’t you think?

 

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy celebrating with your family!

 

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on May 12th when our theme is “2021-2023 New In Colors” when our Design Team creates a project with the new family of In Colors for any occasion. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft space.

Seabed Embossing & Shells for GDP 287

This week’s Global Design Project is a theme: by the sea. So, I wanted to show you the Seabed Embossing Folder before it retires. It’s one of the Last Chance Products, and will only be available until it sells out. You can see the entire list of Last Chance Products by clicking on the box toward the bottom of this post.

By Su Mohr for GDP287; Click aromasandart to go to my web site for details! Featuring: Seabed Embossing Folder, Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Braided Linen Trim, Opal Rounds, Whale Of A Time Sequins; #friendsarelikeseashells #seashells #shells #shellsoncards #seabedembossing #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart #stampinup #lastchancesale #stampinupsale #cardthemes #cardchallenges

Seabed

 

It was easy to emboss  Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, with the Seabed Embossing Folder by running it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Then, I used a Sponge Dauber and Pool Party Ink to lightly spread color across the raised portions.

After coloring, I glued this layer to a Pool Party card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

The shells and seaweed are from the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, stamped in Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand, and Cinnamon Cider Ink. I fussy cut the shells, embossed the sand dollar with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, and attached them with Dimensionals.

Beneath the shells is Braided Linen Trim that I stretched apart, and attached with Glue Dots. The seaweed was cut with a Seaside Seashell Die (forgot to add to my Product List, #156095). The stamp set and dies can also be purchased as a bundle for a 10% savings, #156205.

The sentiment, “for you” is from the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, stamped in Blushing Bride Ink, cut with the smallest Stitched  So Sweetly Die, and attached with a Dimensional. I added a few embellishments to the collection of shells; Opal Rounds and Whale Of A Time Sequins.

 

Back in July, I used the same Seabed Embossing Folder for my Global Design Project. I used Stampin’ Blends to color the raised portions, which was much more time consuming, but fun, if you enjoy coloring. You can click on the card to go to the original blog post.

 

And, one more card using the Seabed Embossing Folder, and the wonderful Whale Of A Time Designer Paper. Unfortunately, the paper has retired and sold out. Please, if there is something on the Last Chance Products List that you like, order ASAP so you won’t be disappointed.

 

After getting more inspiration from our designers, it will be your turn to create a card to hang in our gallery.
