For today’s card I used the Splendid Day Suite, which was my first purchase from the August-December 2022 Mini Catalog. It was made available extra early to Demonstrators, so we would have it in time for a special event that happened Saturday, June 18. The event was called Creativity Now, where Demonstrators  spent several hours crafting together virtually with Stampin’ Up staff.

Prior to the event, I was playing with the gorgeous, new products, and came up with this design. I love the soft colors in the the Splendid Day Designer Paper, and the Splendid Stems Dies! I used Pool Party Cardstock, and Basic White Cardstock for cutting two of the “open” plants in the set.

Splendid Day pastels

 

Next, I used the half-circle Splendid Stems Die, and a Deckled Rectangles Die (2 1/4″ X 3 1/2″) to cut from three patterns of Splendid Day Designer Paper. I used two halves to make a complete circle, and you can see the paper shine in the last photo.

 

The background is Basic White Cardstock, cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die, given texture with the Stitched Greenery Die. 

 

“Thank you” is from the Charming Sentiments Stamp Set, stamped in Pool Party Ink, cut with its Sentiment Silhouettes Die, and attached with Dimensionals. 

As a final touch, I added three Fine Sparkle Adhesive Gems. The gems were a gift to everyone who attended Creativity Now, a perk for being a Demonstrator. Fun, fun, fun!

 

I was inspired by Fusion:

Inspired By A Card Challenge

Have you tried to design a card by using a card challenge? Take a look at the Fusion challenge, and I think you’ll see how today’s card developed.

 

I first thought of the trim I needed, to look like movie film. Using a Blossoming Happiness Die, I cut two strips from Basic Black Cardstock, 4 3/4″ X 1/8″.

“movie film” of flowers

 

Next, I wanted to find something red to represent the sofa color, and decided to use flowers from Hues Of Happiness Designer Paper. The Stylish Shapes Die Set has a 1″ square I used to cut four squares. I also fussy cut two small portions of flowers to glue above, as you can see.

For the top portion of the card , I cut a piece of Perfectly Penciled Designer Paper, 4 3/4″ X 2 1/4″. To make things as even as possible, I glued this first to Basic White Cardstock, 4 3/4″ X 4″. Next, I glued a black strip, followed by the four squares, and finally, the second black strip.

I had to do some maneuvering with the measurements, so the Basic Black card base is 8 1/2 ” X 5″ (rather than 5 1/2″), folded at 4 1/4″.

 

The sentiment is from the Charming Sentiments Stamp Set. I stamped “just for you” in Memento Black Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, used its Sentiment Silhouettes Die for cutting, and attached it with Mini Dimensionals.

I hope you’ve seen how fun it can be to use challenges for inspiration.

Glimmer Wings

 

Next, using Brilliant Wings Dies, I cut the three butterflies from In Color Glimmer Paper in Tahitian Tide and Starry Sky. They were glued at their bodies, leaving the wings to lift. That’s another great thing about Glimmer Paper, it’s extra sturdy.

 

For the sentiment, I found a small, “hello” in the Ranunculus Romance Stamp Set, stamped it in Starry Sky Ink, and used a Ranunculus Die for cutting.

 

I completed my butterfly card with three Glossy Dots. They are included in the new, Hues Of Happiness Suite.

Hues of Happiness sneak peek

 

This suite does not specifically use the new In-Colors, but you could fool me! Instead of using the assigned, Night of Navy, I used the new color, Starry Sky for the card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

I layered the card base with Basic White Cardstock, cut with a unique, Blossoming Happiness Die. I love how the cut out pieces let the color show through!

 

Next, I cut a strip from the Hues of Happiness Designer Paper, 1″ X 5 1/4″, and glued it on the left side. Also, from the Hues of Happiness Designer Paper, is the Melon Mambo flower and Granny Apple Green leaves, cut with Blossoming Happiness Dies. They would be pretty stamped in the new colors, Sweet Sorbet and Parakeet Party.

“Happy birthday” is from the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set, stamped in Starry Sky Ink, to match the card base. I stamped the sentiment on Basic White Cardstock, 1″ X 5 1/4″, and used a Blossoming Happiness Die to add detail to the edge. The “notebook” die is in the first photo; a favorite for sure!

You can make these new, wonderful, products, yours by ordering May 3rd!

Easter Friends Fabric Bunny

Meet Cotton, the fabric bunny. She came to life by stamping her in Early Espresso Ink on In Good Taste Designer Paper, and cutting her free.

Cotton requested to stand in front of a circle of beautiful blue sky with white and pink clouds. We found the sky in Flowering Fields Designer Paper, which I cut with the largest Layering Circles Die, and layered it on Blushing Bride Cardstock, cut with the largest, scalloped, Layering Circles Die.

Cotton, the Fabric Bunny

 

The card base is Pool Party Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, topped with woodgrain, In Good Taste Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″. I added an edge of 6″ X 6″ Subtles DSP in plaid, Pool Party, 1/4″ X 5 1/4″.

Cotton said her card had to be an Easter card, and I’d find the perfect sentiment in her Easter Friends Stamp Set. I stamped “Happy Easter” in Early Espresso Ink on the woodgrain DSP, and used a Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting. After adding a layer of cardstock for thickness, I attached the sentiment with Dimensionals.

 

Next, it was time for Cotton to hop on her card, and she asked for Dimensionals to make her “stand out.” Plus, she wanted a flower to wear on her head. It was lucky for me that a small die fell out of nowhere! I can’t even recall the set where it belongs, but I used it to cut a tiny flower from Blushing Bride Cardstock, and placed it on Cotton’s head. Yes, she also wanted a Rhinestone at the center, and I agreed it was the perfect touch.

 

Cotton was anxious to join the other bunnies at the Fusion challenge.

Turquoise Pansy Patch

Fusion always has fun challenges, and today I fused the sketch with the photo, turquoise flowers.

Featuring: Pansy Patch Bundle, Pansy Patch Stamp Set, Pansy Dies, In Good Taste DSP, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Waves Rhinestones; #pansypatch #pansybundle #ingoodtaste #turquoiseflowers #cardchallenges #cardsketches #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #papercrafting #cardmaking #sumohr #aromasandart.com #stamping #stampinup

Turquoise Flowers

 

 

The Pansy Patch Stamp Set has a pretty, flower that I “stamped off” in Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay Ink.  Without the detailing, it looks more like a Vinca, which I thought was pretty for a change. After stamping on Basic White Cardstock, I used a Pansy Die to cut the five flowers, and placed them on Dimensionals.

The three leaves were also cut with a Pansy Die from Sahara Sand Cardstock, and glued in place.

The Pansy Patch Bundle is one of the “Savings Are In Bloom” bundles being offered this month, and may be one you’d like to add to your collection. Just click on it below, and get your 20% savings!

 

The background is Basic White Cardstock, cut with a Stitched Rectangles Die, 4″ X 2 3/4″. This was attached with Dimensionals to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. The “wall” is In Good Taste Designer Paper, 2 1/4″ X 4 1/4″. I cut it a sliver smaller than 4 1/4″, so it wouldn’t hang over the edge.

The Basic White piece in the corner is actually a petal from the larger pansy, cut with a Pansy Die, shown in the first photo.

 

Prior to attaching the stitched rectangle, I stamped the sentiment in Gray Granite Ink. “A little hello from me to you” is from the Pansy Patch Stamp Set.

The flower centers are Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels, which are gorgeous. You can see all the colors in my Product List.
