Beautiful Boughs for GDP269

Today’s Global Design Project began with a stenciled circle of Just Jade Ink.

I made a stencil by using the largest Layering Circles Die to cut a hole in Whisper White Cardstock.

Beautiful Bough

 

The new Blending Brush was wonderful for applying a smooth circle of ink on Whisper White Cardstock (3 1/2″ X 3 1/2″) inside the stencil. I framed this with Garden Green Cardstock, 1/16” larger.

 

Once I had the background, I used the largest Beautiful Boughs Die to cut from Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and colored it with a Sponge Dauber and Garden Green Ink. For a little embellishment, a few Woven Threads Sequins make it sparkle.

 

”Merry Christmas” is from Cherish The Season, stamped in Real Red Ink on Whisper White Cardstock (3″ X 1″), and framed in Garden Green Cardstock, 1/16” larger.

After embossing the Thick Whisper White card base with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder, I attached the bough and sentiment with Dimensionals.

Sally the Snowman for GDP268

Today’s card features the snowman from the Snow Wonder Bundle. As far as gender, this is definitely a girl, with her pink wreath and rhinestones. But, I think of “snowman” as I do “mankind,” to include both sexes. So, her name is Sally, and I hope this is politically correct.

Sally, from the Snow Wonder Stamp Set, said I should stamp her with Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and use her Snow Time Die for cutting. She mentioned she was the easiest, and best focal point, in the entire August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. I can’t argue with the ease, and she is really cute.

Sally the Snowman

 

After thinking about a sentiment, she decided on “Joy to the world,” because she brings joy to everyone. “Joy” was cut with a “Joy Die” from Basic Black Cardstock that was adhered to a Foam Adhesive Sheet. This is a great way to add dimension to those thin letters, and Sally was happy she could hold “joy” so easily. The coordinating stamp set, Peace & Joy, had the words, “to the world,” which I stamped in Memento Black Ink, and hand cut with scissors.

Snow

 

The wreath HAD to be pink, and I used a Wreath Builder Die to cut it from one of the amazing pieces of In Good Taste Designer Paper. Sally said she wanted it decorated with pretty rhinestones, and it also needed a Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon Bow. She was very specific about that!

 

Sally said she needed snow, because she didn’t want to melt, and the Winter Snow Embossing Folder was perfect for making snow on Whisper White Cardsock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. I glued this to a Thick Whisper White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, so Sally will be safe, at least until Christmas.

 

Sally confided in me that she did get some ideas from Charlet’s card at Global Design Project. I reassured her that she was supposed to do that, as long as as she gave Charlet credit. Here is Charlet’s pretty card, which you can click on to get a better view. You can also see how other designers used Charlet’s idea.

Nothing’s Better Than Coffee for GDP267

Nothing’s Better Than Coffee, especially colorful cups of hot coffee displayed on a curve, perfect for Global Design Project’s theme; hot drinks.

I began by stamping the cups and saucers in four colors (Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, and Daffodil Delight), and I used the Love You More Than Die for cutting.

A coffee kind of day.

 

After cutting, I used Stampin’ Blends in the same colors for coloring the cups and saucers, and placed them on Dimensionals. The background is a layer of Whisper White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″, on a Smoky Slate card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

The Curvy Die is what makes this card unique. I used it to cut three strips of paper; the solid gray from In Good Taste Designer Paper, and the dots from Neutrals 6X6 Designer Paper. After planning the space I needed for the sentiment, I glued them in place.

 

“Today is a” and “kind of day” are from the Nothing’s Better Than Stamp Set, stamped in Basic Gray Ink. “Coffee” was made with a Love You More Than Die, Basic Gray Cardstock, and a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet for dimension.

The final step was stamping the steam, showing that the coffee was really hot.

Heartwarming Hugs & Moose for GDP266

It’s Monday, and time for a Global Design Project sketch. I used Heartwarming Hugs Designer Paper for all the fun layering, plus Mr. Moose wanted to get in on the action. He was easy to create with the Moose Punch, Mossy Meadow Cardstock, and the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder for his fur (he insisted).

Christmas Moose

 

Mr. Moose wanted a Mossy Meadow card base, so it would match his fur (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″). This was topped with a layer of Heartwarming Hugs Designer Paper (4″ X 5 1/4″). Then, two more patterns of the paper were cut with Stitched Rectangles Dies. I think you can see how I glued them in place.

 

The gingham piece is 2 1/2″ X 1 1/2″, with an angled end cut by hand. This was attached with Dimensionals, along with the sentiment. Mr. Moose wanted a place to stand, so requested a Stitched Rectangles Die with “Christmas Cheer” stamped inside it. This sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, stamped in Real Red Ink. He made a good choice, don’t you agree?

Curvy for you

 

I began with a Thick Whisper White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, topped with Smoky Slate Cardstock, 3 1/2″ X 5″. 

Using a Curvy Die, I cut Whisper White Cardstock, 3 1/2″ X 5″, on an angle, and glued the top half to the Smoky Slate layer. Prior to gluing the layer to the card base, I embossed the entire piece with the Scripty Embossing Folder. 

 

Now, for the beautiful leaves! I stamped them in Coastal Cabana Ink, and used a Sponge Dauber for coloring. You could color the leaves individually, but this is a quick & easy coloring option. After I cut the leaves with their Curvy Die, I snipped a few leaves from the end, to fit the space, and attached it with Dimensionals.

For a pop of color, I stamped one of the birds in Daffodil Delight Ink, and colored her with a Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend. My tip for the birds is to die cut first, then stamp. I usually stamp images before cutting, but I was having difficulty centering the birds.

 

The bird is perched on a sentiment from the Quite Curvy Stamp Set, “made with love, just for you.” I stamped it in Smoky Slate Ink, and used an Ornate Frames Die for cutting.

For a little something extra, I added some Pearl Basic Jewels.

 

The color combination of Coastal Cabana and Smoky Slate is this week’s challenge at Global Design Project. I’d love to see how you use the colors, and what you choose as your third color, so please hang your card in our gallery.

In The Pines for GDP264

In The Pines is one of my favorite Bundles from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. I love trees and green, so today’s card makes me very happy.

By Su Mohr for GDP264; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! featuring: In The Pines Stamp set, Pine Woods Dies, Tasteful Textile embossing, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Linen Thread; #christmascards #holidaycards #holiday2020 #inthepines #pinetrees #treesoncards #gdp264 #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #cardstocase #cardinstruction #stampinup #cardchallenges

In The Pines

 

This week’s Global Design Project assignment was to case Steffi Helmschrott. It was really fun to case Steffi, because her cards have such an artistic flair.

I began by stamping the largest tree image, from In The Pines Stamp Set, on Whisper White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4 “. Using three shades of green ink (Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz, and Garden Green) I stamped the trees in a row. Then, I added dots in matching colors of green ink, with a stamp that’s in the set. 

To give it some texture, I used the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

 

 

Next, I cut three, Whisper White Cardstock trees, using the medium tree from the Pine Woods Dies Set, and glued them on top of the stamped trees. 

Before gluing my art piece to the Crumb Cake card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″), I taped two strands of Linen Thread to the back, and tied a bow in the front.

 

“Season’s Greetings” is from In The Pines, stamped in Mossy Meadow Ink, cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die, and attached with Mini Dimensionals.

 

For more inspiration from the GDP Design Team, you can click on Steffi’s card.  If you like my card, you can “case” it using the supplies in my Product List below.
