Read All About It!

 

This week’s Global Design Project is a sketch challenge, which is always a great source of inspiration. See what our designers created, then add your design to our gallery!

 

For today’s card, I began by stamping the birthday pig in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and using his Playful Piggy Die for cutting. The image was easy to color with Stampin’ Blends in four colors: Ivory, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and Parakeet Party. After coloring, I attached the pig with Dimensionals.

 

Next, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black Ink, used its Playful Piggy Die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals. Then, mimicking the sketch, I glued five, For Everything Fancy Sequins, in place.

 

The crooked newsprint in the background is actually Layering Vellum Designs, cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die. It is secured to the Thick Basic White card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″) by adding glue beneath the pig, the sentiment, and the sequins. I used this trick to keep the glue from showing.

Boughs Of Holly with an Eden Die-Cut Wreath

The Eden Die Set has a wonderful, leafy border, that I’m loving for Christmas cards this year. The large, oval, wreath was cut from Boughs Of Holly Designer Paper, and glued to a layer of Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″.

Decorated with Holly

 

Prior to gluing the wreath, I embossed the layer with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder. The music is wonderful for Christmas cards, especially since I discovered it is “Joy To The World.”To add red to my traditional card, I used a Real Red card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4”.

To add red to my traditional Christmas card, I used a Real Red card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

I’ve been cutting poinsettias from the Boughs Of Holly Designer Paper, but today I cut holly berries and two leaves. After cutting, I added a bit of glue to hold them together, and attached the three pieces with Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the Decorated With Happiness Stamp Set, stamped in Real Red Ink on Basic White Cardstock.  After stamping “Wishing you a season decorated with happiness and wonder,” I used a Potted Succulents Die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals.

Christmas Poinsettias and Pine Boughs

The Boughs Of Holly Designer Paper has beautiful poinsettias, which are fun to cut, once you get the hang of it. Stampin’ Up’s Paper Snips are the perfect tool for the job, and remember to move the paper, not the scissors.

Poinsettia Pines

 

The background for the poinsettias was created with two, large, Christmas Pinecone Dies. The bottom, thicker, layer was cut from Garden Green Cardstock, and the top, delicate, layer was cut from Boughs Of Holly Designer Paper in darker green. After cutting, I glued the pine layers to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

Next, I stamped the sentiment in Real Red Ink, used a Potted Succulents Die for cutting, and placed it on Dimensionals.  “Merry Christmas” is from the Cottage Wreaths Stamp Set, and I love the small size and font.

After positioning the poinsettias, I attached them with Dimensionals, making sure they covered the sentiment label just a bit.

 

I’m entering TGIF’s challenge this week, “cut it out!”

To make the most of this experience, you can order the Cottage Rose Bundle from the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog, the Cottage Wreaths Bundle from the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog, or the Warm Welcome Bundle, which you can get early from the January–June 2023 Mini Catalog!

 You can still attend this event without ordering the bundles, but it will be a lot more fun to craft together if you have one or more bundles! 

 

For today’s card, I was excited to use the Cottage Wreaths Bundle, and stamped a wreath of leaves in Garden Green Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I stamped a second wreath of stems on top of it in Early Espresso Ink.

After stamping, I used a Cottage Wreath Die to cut the wreath, and another die in the set to cut the bow from Gingham Cottage Designer Paper. Doesn’t the Real Red plaid make a pretty bow?

Christmas Wreath

 

Beneath the wreath is Basic White Cardstock, cut with the fourth largest Deckled Rectangles Die. After cutting, I embossed it with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder, and placed it on Dimensionals.

 

For a different color combination, I added a layer of Early Espresso 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper, cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die, to the Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

The sentiment, “Christmas Greetings,” is from the Trees For Sale Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso Ink, and fussy cut. I attached the wreath and sentiment with Dimensionals, and my card was complete.

 

I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.

Poinsettias Gingham Cottage Christmas Card

When I saw the Fusion sketch, I knew I wanted to include a fancy edge, cut with an Eden Die. This is a fabulous die set that I’ve used many times, and it’s one of the Weekly Deals right now, but the discounted offer ends tomorrow, Thursday the 22nd. You can see the entire set in my Product List below, and clicking on it will take you to my store for ordering.

I used this die by lining it on the edge of Gingham Cottage Designer Paper, 2″ X 5 1/2″, and rolling it through my Stampin Cut & Emboss Machine.

Brick wall and poinsettias

 

After die-cutting, I glued this piece to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Prior to gluing, the card base was embossed with the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder.

 

Next, I fussy cut the poinsettias from Boughs Of Holly Designer Paper, and attached it with Dimensionals. 

Merry Christmas is from the Cottage Wreaths Stamp Set, stamped in Evening Evergreen Ink on Basic White Cardstock. I made two cuts with the smallest Deckled Rectangles Die to make the label the desired size, and attached it with Dimensionals.

A Pheasant’s “Pleasant Little Note”

My second Painted Pheasant card is showing off colors that I found in a photo: Soft Suede, Mango Melody, Early Espresso, Orchid Oasis, Cinnamon Cider, plus, a Real Red Stampin’ Blend. The markers come in color collections that you can see in my Product List below.

“A pleasant little note”

 

Isn’t he pretty?

 

To color the pheasant, I used the same “ink to stamp” technique as the first card, which is painting the stamp with the Stampin’ Write Markers, using the Stamparatus. The Stamparatus holds the Basic White Cardstock in place, while coloring the stamp on the lid of the Stamparatus, and lowering it to stamp the paper, one color at a time.  

The Basic White Cardstock is 5 1/4″ X 4″, which I glued to a Crumb Cake card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.  Prior to gluing, I stamped the pheasant’s habitat in Crumb Cake Ink with an image from the Painted Pheasant Stamp Set. I also cut a strip of grass from Crumb Cake Cardstock, using a Playful Piggy Die, and glued it along the bottom.

 

If you like “play on words,” you’ll enjoy this sentiment, “A pleasant little note.” Cute, huh? I stamped it in Early Espresso Ink, and used a Potted Succulents Die for cutting.

After attaching the sentiment with Dimensionals, I added a bow of Linen Thread on a Glue Dot.

 

I was inspired by TGIF.
