Sneak Peek of Splendid Thoughts Bundle for GDP 349

This week’s Global Design Project is a fun, color challenge, using Tahitian Tide, Parakeet Party, and Daffodil Delight. You only have to wait four more days to order the Splendid Thoughts Bundle, and I wanted to give you a sneak peek in this color combo, unlike its coordinating designer paper.

I began by stamping two of the plants, and a bee, from the Splendid Thoughts Stamp Set, in Parakeet Party Ink and Daffodil Delight Ink. The stamp set has “two-step” stamping, which I used for coloring; intentionally not matching the outlines for an artistic look. Then, I used three Splendid Stems Dies to cut the plants, and the bee, which match the outlines.

Splendid Thoughts Sneak Peek #1

 

Next, I used three Splendid Stems Dies to cut plants that are “open” from three colors of cardstock:  Parakeet Party, Daffodil Delight and Basic White.

 

The bowl is another Splendid Stems Die, cut from Basic White Cardstock that I stamped in Tahitian Tide Ink with a splotch stamp from the Artistically Inked Stamp Set. Prior to attaching it with Dimensionals, I stamped it in Memento Black Ink with a sentiment from the Splendid Thoughts Stamp Set, “today is a day to remember.”

 

The background is Basic White Cardstock, 4′ X 5 1/4″, given a border with the second largest Stitched with Whimsy Die. This was glued to a Tahitian Tide card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. 

I just love this bundle, and can’t wait to continue making cards with it!

Hope & Prayer for Global Design Project 348

Just released from Stampin’ Up: 24 hours FREE SHIPPING, Tuesday June 21!!!! Get those Last Chance Products on your wish list, or stock up on basics.

 

For this week’s Global Design Project, we get to CASE Krista Frattin, and I love her anchor card. There happens to be a similar anchor in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, Hope & Prayer Stamp Set, which I’ve been waiting to use.

The first thing I did was stamp the anchor in Coastal Cabana Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, along with the sentiment in Basic Gray Ink. Then, I used the sixth largest Deckled Rectangles Die for cutting.

The two sweet birds were stamped in the same colors of ink, and I used my Paper Snips for cutting them by hand.

“Hope anchors the soul”

 

The background is Vellum Layering Designs, cut with the fourth largest Deckled Rectangles Die, glued to Basic White Cardstock, cut with the same die, to prevent the color of the next layer showing through the vellum. The next layer is Subtles 6X6 Designer Paper in Coastal Cabana, cut with the third largest Deckled Rectangles Die.

 

I attached the top layer and Coastal Cabana layer with Dimensionals to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Prior to attaching everything, I scored three lines across the card front, using a Paper Trimmer. This added just enough detail, don’t you think?

When the birds took flight across my card, it was complete.

Ranunculus Leaves for Global Design Project 347

Plants and leaves are beautiful on cards, and the theme for this week’s Global Design Project. I chose a favorite leaf from the Ranunculus Die Set. Isn’t it wonderful?

Ranunculus Leaf

 

To create the colors, I used Blending Brushes, Basic White Cardstock, and six colors of ink: Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, Fresh Freesia, and Polished Pink. Then, I used the Ranunculus leaf die for cutting.

 

The background for my rainbow of leaves is a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Prior to attaching the leaves, I gave the card base a simple border, using the largest Stitched With Whimsy die. Three of the leaves were glued, and three were attached with thin strips of Dimensionals.

 

The sentiment was created with the Charming Sentiments Bundle and heat embossing. First, I stamped “congratulations” in VersaMark on Basic White Cardstock. Second, I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and set it with the Heat Tool. Third, I used its Sentiments Silhouettes Die for cutting. Finally, I attached the sentiment with a thin strip (cut from the edge) of Dimensionals.

For a little sparkle, I added three Glossy Dots in coordinating colors.

Nature’s Prints for Global Design Project 346

Welcome to our first Global Design Project in June, where we have a fun sketch challenge.

The flower I used for this week’s project is from the Nature’s Prints Stamp Set, which I stamped in a rainbow of colors. From top to bottom, the ink colors are: Highland Heather, Coastal Cabana, Mint Macaron, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, and Calypso Coral.

The splotch beneath the flowers, also a Nature’s Prints stamp, was “stamped-off”  in four of the colors. “Stamped-off” means I stamped on scratch paper, before stamping on my project, to make the color lighter.

Nature’s Prints Rainbow Flowers

 

After stamping the pretty flower in six colors, I used its Natural Prints Die for cutting.

The background is Basic White Cardstock,  3 1/2″ X 5 1/4″, with a side strip of Perfectly Penciled Designer Paper, 1/2″ X 5 1/4″. These were glued to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

The sentiment, “Hello there” is from the Nature’s Prints Stamp Set, stamped in Stazon Black Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, and cut with a Painted Labels Die. I attached the sentiment with Dimensionals, along with the flowers. However, the stems are glued flat up to the blossoms.

 

 

Here is the sketch. Isn’t it inspiring? Please create a card, and hang it in our gallery.

Pretty Bird in Petal Pink for Global Design Project 345

I’ve noticed that the emailed version of my blog has a different appearance. If you click on Aromas And Art (blue letters) in the upper right corner, it will take you to my website with a normal appearance. 

 

This week’s Global Design Project is a color challenge: Petal Pink with two new, In Colors, Starry Sky and Sweet Sorbet.

I began with a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. The next layer is Petal Pink Cardstock, cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die, and given texture with the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. This embossing folder is my gift for the month of May; see details below.

The top layer was cut with the second largest Deckled Rectangles Die from Basic White Cardstock.

Pretty Bird in Petal Pink

 

 “Thanks” was cut with Amazing Thanks Dies; the bubble from Starry Sky Cardstock, and the word from Thick Basic White Cardstock. After gluing them together, I placed “thanks” on small pieces of Dimensionals. It’s nice that the bubble gives you room to do this.

Before attaching “thanks,” I used a splotch stamp from the Nature’s Prints Stamp Set, to stamp two times in Petal Pink Ink, and two times in “stamped off” Sweet Sorbet Ink. Then, I added some Starry Sky with a Stampin’ Blend, by flicking the brush against the lid. This was done in my laundry room sink, just in case of overspray.

 

Next, it was time for Pretty Bird to make her appearance, and I stamped her in Petal Pink Ink on Basic White Cardstock, using her Birdhouse Die for cutting. She grabbed some Dimensionals, and perched herself atop the “k.” A perfect spot, don’t you think?

 

Pretty Bird felt our card was a little plain, and suggested I find some pretty flowers. I thought of using a Summer Shadows Die, because it coordinates with the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. Pretty Bird thought the two Basic White Cardstock flowers were exactly what our card needed, and it was time to take pictures.

Wisteria Wishes for Global Design Project 344

For this week’s Global Design Project, we get to CASE Charlet Mallett, and I love her color combination of green and purple. Isn’t her card beautiful?

 

Since green and purple are perfect colors for wisteria, I wanted to use the Wisteria Wishes Stamp Set.

First, I cut Basic White Cardstock 5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″ and used a Blending Brush to lightly color it with Pear Pizzazz Ink. To continue with Charlet’s idea, I used the largest Scalloped Contours Die for the border.

Wisteria Happiness

 

Next, I placed this colored cardstock in the Stamparatus, and stamped the leaves and vine in Old Olive Ink. Then, I stamped the hanging flowers in Highland Heather Ink, followed by the darker, Gorgeous Grape Ink. This is called “two-step” stamping, which adds nice dimension, and why the Stamparatus comes in especially handy for placement.

I glued my layer to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

The sentiment, “happiness grows within,” is from the Wisteria Wishes Stamp Set. I stamped it in Old Olive Ink on Basic White cardstock, and used the Double Oval Punch for cutting. I glued this to a scalloped oval that was cut with the same punch, and attached it with Dimensionals.

 

My card was complete, after adding three, Brushed Brass Butterflies.
