Garden Bee

 

After using the Lasting Elegance border die to cut from Very Vanilla Cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″), I embossed it with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.

Usually I stamp before embossing, but I wanted to see if it would work this way.  Stamping the foliage and pollen (Garden Wishes Stamp Set) in Shaded Spruce Ink was successful, because I used the Stamparatus. This enabled me to stamp several times, as well as adding a touch of Just Jade Ink to the “poofs.”

Next, I stamped the star of the show, the bee, in Early Espresso Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock, and used a Dandy Wishes Die for cutting. A Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend was used to color the bee, a perfect pop of color. Then, I used a die to make the bee’s trail. Isn’t it the cutest?

 

The sentiment, “hello,” is from the Well Said Stamp Set, but there is also “hello” in the Garden Wishes Stamp Set. I stamped the word in Early Espresso Ink, cut it with a Dandy Wishes Die, and attached it with a Dimensional.

The card base is Shaded Spruce, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

I was inspired by Fusion.

 

And, I received color inspiration from the Better Homes & Gardens magazine. It’s always fun to see color trends, and today’s card is an example of using Very Vanilla with Shaded Spruce for the “cream & sea green” trend.

Bunny Announces LAST CHANCE Retiring items and Sale!

This is an exciting day! Stampin’ Up’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog is retiring, and that means you’ll get to see the Last Chance items, as well as some that are on sale. Many will go quickly, so order right away to avoid being disappointed. Click here to see the list at my store, available March 24, 1:00 PM Mountain Time.

Now, for today’s card, my favorite, Springtime Joy bunny. She was stamped in Crumb Cake Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and colored with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. Bunny wanted her head piece to stand out, so I fussy cut a second one. Prior to attaching it with a tiny strip of Dimensional, I colored it with Stampin’ Blends in three colors: Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, and Granny Apple Green.

Bunny’s background is Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, cut with the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die, and glued to a Blushing Bride card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Easter Bunny

 

Next, I stamped “Wishing you the blessings of …,” and “Easter,” in Crumb Cake Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and cut with two Stitched Rectangles Dies.

 

The smallest Stitched Rectangles Die was longer than I wanted for the word “Easter,” so I’ll show you how I shortened it, below. A picture is worth a thousand words, right?

 

Bunny’s eggs were made with a Birds & More Die and three colors of cardstock: So Saffron, Blushing Bride, and Basic White. Bunny is quite proud of her collection of eggs.

 

I was inspired by Fusion.

Butterfly Brilliance In Shades Of Green

Remember when I stamped Brilliant Butterflies in Memento Black Ink, and said I was going to color them with Stampin’ Blends? Today is the day! This butterfly is camouflaged in shades of green: Old Olive, Granny Apple Green, and Just Jade.

By Su Mohr for Fusion; Click aromasandart to go to my web site for details!

Butterfly In Green

 

I used the one-piece, Brilliant Butterflies Stamp, and Brilliant Wings, one-piece die, for cutting.

The entire Butterfly Brilliance Collection is in my Product List below, even though I didn’t use everything for this card. You’ll want to order it now, while it’s available.

 

The Stamparatus was used when stamping the butterflies. This enabled me to stamp several times, so the images would have perfect ink coverage. You can see the Stamparatus in my Product List also.

 

The background for my butterfly is a layer of Forever Greenery Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″. It is glued to a Garden Green card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. 

 

 

The sentiment, “Made with love just for you,” is from the Quite Curvy Stamp Set. I stamped it in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and used an Ornate Frames Die for cutting the label. The frame was cut from Old Olive Cardstock, also using an Ornate Frames Die.

I attached the butterfly and sentiment with Dimensionals, and my card was complete. I wonder what color my next butterfly will be?

 

Can you see how I was inspired by Fusion?

Rainbow Dragonflies

Rainbows are among nature’s most  beautiful, awe inspiring, sights, so it’s fun to try and capture rainbows on paper.

I began by painting stripes of color across Basic White Cardstock, large enough to accommodate two dragonflies. Four Stampin’ Blend colors were used, in an alternating pattern: Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue, Flirty Flamingo, and Highland Heather. Then, I stamped two dragonflies, from the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink, on top of the rainbow stripes.

By Su Mohr for Fusion; Click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Dragonflies Bundle, Rooted In Nature, Stampin' Blends, Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, Blending Brushes, Opal Rounds; #rainbowsoncards #rootedinnature #dragonfliesbundle #dragonflygarden #dragonflies #rainbows #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stamping #stampinup #cardchallenges

Rainbow Dragonflies

 

Next, I used the Dragonfly Punch for cutting, which made it very easy, and I placed them on Dimensionals.

For the background, I applied Balmy Blue Ink to a Blending Brush, and with a light touch in a circular motion, colored Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″.

After coloring, I cut an inch off the side of the sky background, and embossed it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. Then, I glued both pieces to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, making sure the border was even.

 

For a bit more rainbow, I used the Classic Label Punch to cut a piece of the remaining stripe, and glued it in place.

Before attaching the dragonflies, I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue Ink. “Thinking of  you” is from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set.

The Opal Rounds glisten in rainbow colors, so I had to add them as a final touch.

 

I was inspired by Fusion.

Masculine Valentine in Neutral Colors

I’ve been in Valentine card-making mode, so I’m continuing with one in neutral colors. I’m thinking this would appeal to guys, don’t you agree?

By Su Mohr for Fusion; Click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Be Mine Stitched Dies, True Love Designer Paper, Art Gallery Bundle, Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, Brushed Metallic Cardstock, Banner Triple Punch; #valentines #masculinecards #hearts #heartsoncards #beminestitcheddies #ittybittygreetings #artgallerybundle #sumohr #aromasandart #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stamping #cardsketches

Valentine in Neutrals

 

A card base in Crumb Cake Cardstock is always a good bet for guys, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Next, I cut a layer of Basic White Cardstock, 5″ X 3 3/4″, and used a Be Mine Stitched Die to cut the band of hearts across the center. This die is great, because it cuts a “frame” of hearts, and also gives you 21 little hearts. But for this card, I glued the frame back in the hole (inlaid), after backing the white layer with wood texture, In Good Taste Designer Paper. I hope this makes sense.

Once my heart layer was glued together, I backed it with True Love Designer Paper, 1/8″ larger, giving it a narrow, black & white, diagonal border.

 

The banner was cut from Brushed Metallic Cardstock, using the Banner Triple Punch, 1″ X 1 3/4″. I gave it some texture with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder. The punch is a handy tool that you can check out in my Product List below.

The heart by the banner was cut from True Love Designer Paper with a Be Mine Stitched Die. I backed it for thickness, gave it a Linen Thread bow, and attached it with Dimensionals.

“Sent with love” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, stamped in Stazon Ink, and cut with a Floral Gallery Die. Don’t you love the perforated edge?

 

I was inspired by the sketch and colors at Fusion.

Welcoming Window With Vellum

I’ve already expressed how much I love the Welcoming Window Bundle, and the feeling continues.

By Su Mohr for Fusion; Click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Welcoming Windows, Vellum cardstock, Brick& Mortar embossing, #welcomingwindows #windows #windowsoncards #vellumoncards #friendshipcards #cardchallenges #cardinspiration #brick&mortar #sumohr #aromasandart #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stampinup #saleabration2021

Vellum Window & Vase

 

Today’s card actually began with the flower vase. I used a Window Flower Box Die for cutting, and was happy that Vellum Cardstock made it look like glass. The flowers were created with two-step stamping on my Stamparatus. After positioning the greenery on Basic White Cardstock, I stamped with Soft Sea Foam Ink. Then, I placed the flower stamp on top of the stamped greenery, stamped with Petal Pink Ink, and cut the bouquet with its Window Flower Box Die.

 

 Next, I cut the window from Thick Basic White Cardstock, using its Window Flower Box Die. And, the Vellum was handy, so I decided to add “glass” window panes by gluing a piece to the back of the window. 

The shutters were stamped in Sahara Sand Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, cut with their die, and attached with Dimensionals.

 

The window is surrounded by white bricks, created with Basic White Cardstock (5 1/4″ X 4″) and the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder. 

Prior to embossing, I used the window die to cut a hole where I wanted to place the window. This led to attaching the brick layer with Dimensionals on the Thick Basic White card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″), for additional dimension.

The sentiment is from the Welcoming Window Stamp Set. I stamped “wishing our paths crossed a little more often” in Crumb Cake Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, 4 3/4″ X 1/2″, also attached with Dimensionals.

 

Talk about wonderful inspiration! I think you can see how I came up with my card design; the sketch and the photo from Fusion.
