Party Puffins for GDP 291

The Party Puffins, from the new, 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, were designed to say “Happy Birthday.” Here they are in their natural habitat of coastal cliffs by the sea. The smaller one looks like a baby to me, and he’s called a puffling. Aren’t they cute?

I stamped the Puffins in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and cut them free. They were a cinch to color; only requiring a bit of Stampin’ Blends on their beaks and feet in three colors: Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Daffodil Delight.

Party Puffins

To create their habitat, I began with a Smoky Slate card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.  Then, I cut a layer of sea from Sand & Sea Designer Paper, 4″ X 5″.

Next, I created the coastal cliffs, using a Majestic Mountain Die, and In Good Taste Designer Paper. I glued two sections flat, and placed one on Dimensionals, trimming the sides to fit the 4″ layer of sea.

 

Last, I stamped “Happy Birthday,” from the Party Puffins Stamp Set, in Seaside Spray Ink in the sea.

Aloha for Global Design Project 290

For this week’s Global Design Project, we have a circular sketch, and I envisioned a beautiful Hawaiian lei. Can’t you smell the flowers?

By Su Mohr for GDP290; Click aromasandart to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Sand & Sea Designer Paper, Forever Gold Laser-Cut Paper, In The Tropics Dies; #leis #hawaii #hawaiianleis #wreaths #wreathsoncards #aloha #gdp290 #cardsketches #inthetropics #timelesstropical #tropicalcards #sumohr #aromasandart #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting

Hawaiian Lei

 

The leaves are from the retiring, Forever Gold Laser-Cut Paper. I used the backside of the paper, which is white, and colored it with a Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend.

 

I cut the flowers, using a die from In The Tropics, from three colors of cardstock: Real Red, Magenta Madness, and Basic White. 

The background is Sand & Sea Designer Paper, which I cut 1/8″ smaller than the Basic White layer, which is 4″ X 5 1/4″. The card base is Seaside Spray (a retiring color) 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

“Aloha” is also an In The Tropics die, which I cut from Basic Black Cardstock. For a final touch, I added three little pearls. Hawaii has wonderful necklaces of pearls and shells!

 

We’d love to see how you envision the circular sketch. Please add your creation to our gallery.

Bright Colors for GDP 289

It’s so much fun playing with color, and this week’s Global Design Project combines Magenta Madness, Coastal Cabana, and Bumblebee. How do you like this bright combination?

By Su Mohr for GDP289; Click aromasandart to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Dandy Wishes Dies, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Ornate Frames Dies, Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, Tasteful Textile embossing; #dandywishes #gardenwishes #stitchedrectangles #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart #gdp289 #brightcolors #colorcombinations #cardchallenges #ittybittygreetings

Dandy Wishes

 

I began with a Coastal Cabana card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I used the largest Stitched Rectangles Die to cut a layer of Brights 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper in a Coastal Cabana Dot.

Next, I used the third largest Stitched Rectangles Die to cut Basic White Cardstock, which I framed with a 1/16″ border of Magenta Madness.

 

Before gluing the layers to the card base, I embossed the Basic White, top layer, with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder for some texture.

 

Now for the fun plant! This great die is in the Dandy Wishes Die Set, which I used to cut the three colors of cardstock: Thick Basic White, Bumblebee, and Magenta Madness.

You can see the die in the first picture, and the complete set in my Product List below. I attached the plants with glue on the stems, up to the base of the plants, leaving the tops free.

At the spot where the plants gathered, I attached the sentiment with Dimensionals. “Celebrate” was stamped in Memento Black Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die.

The sentiment is from a favorite, retiring stamp set, Itty Bitty Greetings, and the In Color Enamel Dots have already retired, but I HAD to use them.

 

Continue being inspired by this bright color combo, then hang your creation in our gallery, please.

Painted Poppies for GDP 288

This week at Global Design Project, we are casing Manuela Geiswinkler, and I used one of my favorite sets, Painted Poppies, with her layout and colors.

Featuring: Painted Poppies Stamp Set, Painted Labels Dies, Poppy Moments Dies, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Subtle Textured embossing;#handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stampinup #sumohr #aromasandart #aromasandart.com/shop #cardinstruction #paintedpoppies #poppies #poppiesoncards #flowersoncards #gdp288 #cardchallenges

Painted Poppies

 

Here is Manuela’s card, using the Snailed It Bundle. I love how the snail is in the vellum envelope! Check out the other projects, then join us in casing Manuela!

I began with a Thick Basic White card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″), topped with angled, Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Paper (3 3/4″ X 5″) in Night Of Navy.

The Basic White Cardstock, angled on top ( 3 1/2″ X 4 3/4″) was embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder. This embossing folder is retiring the end of May, so get it now while it’s still available.

 

Next, I stamped the flowers from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set in Night Of Navy Ink on Basic White Cardstock. I colored them with Petal Pink ink and a “splotch” stamp in the set, and they were easily cut with Painted Labels Dies. You can see the two dies in the first picture, and in my Product List below.

Then, I cut the leaves from Soft Sea Foam Cardstock with two Poppy Moments Dies. The smaller flower and leaves were glued flat, and the larger flower was attached with Dimensionals.

 

“Hey, friend” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, stamped in Night Of Navy Ink, and cut with the smallest Stitched So Sweetly Die. I attached the sentiment with Dimensionals, added three Pearl Basic Jewels, and my project was complete.

Seabed Embossing & Shells for GDP 287

This week’s Global Design Project is a theme: by the sea. So, I wanted to show you the Seabed Embossing Folder before it retires. It’s one of the Last Chance Products, and will only be available until it sells out. You can see the entire list of Last Chance Products by clicking on the box toward the bottom of this post.

Featuring: Seabed Embossing Folder, Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Braided Linen Trim, Opal Rounds, Whale Of A Time Sequins; #friendsarelikeseashells #seashells #shells #shellsoncards #seabedembossing #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart #stampinup #lastchancesale #stampinupsale #cardthemes #cardchallenges

Seabed

 

It was easy to emboss  Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, with the Seabed Embossing Folder by running it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Then, I used a Sponge Dauber and Pool Party Ink to lightly spread color across the raised portions.

After coloring, I glued this layer to a Pool Party card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

The shells and seaweed are from the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, stamped in Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand, and Cinnamon Cider Ink. I fussy cut the shells, embossed the sand dollar with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, and attached them with Dimensionals.

Beneath the shells is Braided Linen Trim that I stretched apart, and attached with Glue Dots. The seaweed was cut with a Seaside Seashell Die (forgot to add to my Product List, #156095). The stamp set and dies can also be purchased as a bundle for a 10% savings, #156205.

The sentiment, “for you” is from the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, stamped in Blushing Bride Ink, cut with the smallest Stitched  So Sweetly Die, and attached with a Dimensional. I added a few embellishments to the collection of shells; Opal Rounds and Whale Of A Time Sequins.

 

Back in July, I used the same Seabed Embossing Folder for my Global Design Project. I used Stampin’ Blends to color the raised portions, which was much more time consuming, but fun, if you enjoy coloring. You can click on the card to go to the original blog post.

 

And, one more card using the Seabed Embossing Folder, and the wonderful Whale Of A Time Designer Paper. Unfortunately, the paper has retired and sold out. Please, if there is something on the Last Chance Products List that you like, order ASAP so you won’t be disappointed.

 

After getting more inspiration from our designers, it will be your turn to create a card to hang in our gallery.

True Love for GDP 286

Sketch challenges are always inspirational, and today’s Global Design Project sketch was no exception.

My favorite circle, lately, has been the Birds & More Die, which I used to cut a hole in the middle of dotted, True Love Designer Paper, 5 1/4″ X 4 “.

By Su Mohr for GDP286; Click aromasandart to go to my web site for details!

True Love Design

 

I glued this dotted layer to a Granny Apple Green card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Using more of the True Love Designer Paper, I fussy cut a flower, and colored it with Stampin’ Blends in four colors: Granny Apple Green, Old Olive, Mango Melody, and Daffodil Delight. After coloring, I attached it with Dimensionals.

 

One more pattern of True Love Designer Paper was used in two of the curvy strips, above and below, the sentiment. The curvy strips were cut with an Ornate Frames Die.

The sentiment, stamped on Basic White Cardstock with Memento Black Ink, is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, a favorite, and one that is retiring. You can see the entire Last Chance Products list by clicking on the box below.

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing how I used a favorite circle, and will get more inspiration from our GDP Designers, and post your cards in our gallery.
