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.

Pinwheel Flower with Instructions

It’s been a while since I made a pinwheel, but it’s lots of fun, so follow along to see how I did it.

 

First, I cut two strips of Sun Prints Designer Paper, 1/2″ X 12″. Second, using my Paper Trimmer, I scored the strips every 1/2″; then, folded them on the score lines, like an accordion, and glued the ends together, making a circle.

Now comes the tricky part, because you need to fold it on its side to form the pinwheel, then glue it to a round circle to hold it together. I prepared this circle with cardstock, cut with the smallest Layering Circles Die, and covered it with Liquid Glue. If you need visualization, you can search for a You Tube video.

The background is Basic White Cardstock, cut with the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die. This size fits perfectly within Sun Prints Designer Paper, cut with the largest Scalloped Contours Die. The two layers were glued to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

Next, I stamped the stem and leaves, from the Art Gallery Stamp Set, in Night of Navy Ink on Basic White Cardstock. After cutting with a Floral Gallery Die, I layered it for thickness, and glued it in place.

The center of the pinwheel flower was cut with a Poppy Moments Die from So Saffron Cardstock, and attached with a Glue Dot.

The butterfly is from the Daffodil Daydream Stamp Set, stamped in So Saffron Ink, cut with its Daffodil Die, and attached with a Dimensional.

The sentiment, “sending you this paper hug,” is from the Through It Together Stamp Set. I stamped it in Night Of Navy Ink, used the smallest, scalloped Layering Circles Die for cutting, and placed it on Dimensionals with the butterfly.

Happy Birthday Balloon Bouquet

Balloons are synonymous with birthdays, right? For today’s card, I have to, first, show you my inspiration; the colors, and the upside down sketch from Fusion.

I was inspired by Fusion.

 

My bouquet of round balloons was cut with the smallest Layering Circles Die, and the bow is a Sentiments Silhouettes Die.

Balloon Bouquet

 

To get the pastel colors, I used Blending Brushes with four colors of Ink: Balmy Blue, Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, and Pool Party. After cutting the balloons and bows, I positioned them, along with the strings, stamped in Gray Granite. This string is from a long retired stamp set, Party Pants. It was among my first stamp sets when joining Stampin’ Up!, and you can see it in my Product List below.

The card base is Gray Granite Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, layered with Basic White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″.

 

The sentiment is from the Charming Sentiments Stamp Set, cut with its Sentiments Silhouettes Die. I stamped “wishing you the happiest of birthdays” in Gray Granite Ink, attached it with Dimensionals, and my birthday card was complete.

A Tree Ring and Wine

We all love punches, and this wine bottle was easy to make with the Vintage Bottle Punch. First, I stamped the bottle from the Bottled Happiness Stamp Set in Pool Party Ink, along with the label and “Wine Not” in Soft Succulent Ink. After winding some Linen Thread around the neck, secured with a Glue Dot, I placed the bottle on Dimensionals.

Wine on a tree ring

 

Next, I attached the bottle to a tree ring that I cut from Rings Of Love Designer Paper, one of the FREE Sale-a-bration items. This designer paper has been out-of-stock a short time, but will be back soon.

The Mossy Meadow branch was cut with a Harvest Die, and the leaves were cut with a Forever Flourishing Die from Soft Succulent Cardstock that I daubed with Mossy Meadow Ink.

 

The background is Basic White Cardstock, embossed with the Timber Embossing Folder, adding to the “woodsy” feel. This is one of the items that was added to Sale-a-bration for the month of August, free with a $50.00 qualifying order. You can see the complete list of additional Sale-a-bration items below.

After cutting with the second largest Deckled Rectangles Die, I glued it to Soft Succulent Cardstock, cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die. Both layers were glued to a Mint Macaron card base, 8 1/2″ X 5/12″, folded at 4 1/4″, and my card was complete.

“Coastal Grandma” Seaside Seashells

I haven’t used the Seaside Seashell set lately, and I’d forgotten how amazing it is! The large die-cut in Basic White Cardstock fills the entire card front. 

I recently discovered that the internet has a design theme trending called “Coastal Grandma,” and today’s card fits right in. Just google it, and you’ll see what I mean.

Featuring: Seaside Seashells Dies, Seashells Embossing Folder, Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, Awash In Beauty DSP, Opal Rounds; #friendsarelikeseashells #seasideseashellsdies #seashellsembossingfolder #seashells #beach #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart.com #stamping #stampinup #beachscenes #cardchallenges

“Coastal Grandma” Seashells

 

The super cool thing about these shells is that they have an embossing folder that covers the entire die-cut, and embosses them in one pass through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Isn’t the texture great?

 

The pink behind the shells is Awash In Beauty Designer Paper, cut with the second largest Deckled Rectangles Die. This is layered on a Sahara Sand card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

To complete the card, I stamped the sentiment and the starfish, from the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set. “Love you to the beach and back” was stamped in Early Espresso Ink, and cut with two Deckled Rectangles Dies, in order to make it the smaller size. The starfish was stamped in Sahara Sand Ink, cut with its Seaside Seashells Die, and both were attached with Dimensionals. For some sparkle, I added a few Opal Rounds.

If you have yet to order this returning favorite, the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set is on the “low inventory” list; just a warning.

 

I’m sharing today’s card with the Fusion challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Bewitching Halloween Card

I couldn’t wait to make my first Halloween card of the season. This little witch in the 2022 July-December Mini Catalog is oh, so cute! She is from the Bewitching Bundle, which comes with the Witch Hat Builder Punch. For today’s card, I simply stamped the hat in Highland Heather Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and used the punch for cutting.

“Woo-Hoo, it’s Halloween”

 

Next, I stamped her shoes and socks in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then I used Pumpkin Pie and Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends to add a touch of color.

 

After coloring, I used a Deckled Rectangles Die (2 1/4″ X 3 1/2″) for cutting. The same die was used to cut a rectangle of Gingham Cottage Designer Paper, which I glued to the white cardstock, and placed on Dimensionals. 

The card base is Thick Basic White Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, layered with another piece of Gingham Cottage Designer Paper, cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die. You can see all of the beautiful colors of this designer paper in my Product List below. Isn’t the orange perfect for Fall and Halloween?

 

I was inspired by the Fusion challenge. It’s all about the hat!
