By The Bay “Love” for Global Design Project 378

Welcome to this week’s Global Design Project, a sketch challenge. Since love is in the air with the making of Valentines, I decided to use some of my favorite By The Bay Designer Paper with the word, “LOVE.”

 

I began with a Sahara Sand card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, and embossed it with the Seashells Embossing Folder.

Next, I used the third largest Stitched Rectangles Die to cut By The Bay Designer Paper, careful to choose one with a vertical line to mimic the sketch.

 

After gluing the designer paper in the middle of my card front, I created the letters for “LOVE.” Before running the Alphabet Dies and By The Bay Designer Paper through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, I attached a Foam Adhesive Sheet (1 3/4″ X 1 3/4″) to give the letters dimension. For added fun, I fussy cut a round shell to take the place of “O.”

 

“Love you to the beach & back,” is from the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, stamped in Starry Sky Ink on By The Bay Designer Paper, and cut with a Deckled Rectangles Die. I used two cuts to make it the desired size.

After adding a Flat Adhesive Backed Pearl to the sentiment, something was still missing. I had no idea what would happen when I started pulling on the Night Of Navy Bordered Ribbon, but it became a delightful surprise! Doesn’t it look like sea anemones? I glued the two pieces in place, and my beach, love, card was complete.

Around The Bend for Global Design Project 377

This week’s Global Design Project is a color combination: So Saffron, Balmy Blue, and Granny Apple Green. The colors inspired me to experiment with Around The Bend Dies from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. I began with a Granny Apple Green card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. The large, Around The Bend Die, was used to cut the card front, leaving half of the inside exposed.

Around The Bend

 

For the exposed inside, I used a pattern of Dandy Designs Designer Paper in Balmy Blue, 4″ X 5 1/4″. I also wanted to add white to the inside for writing a message. To do this, I used the same Around The Bend Die to cut Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. After cutting, I glued this to the back of the card front, careful to match the die-cuts.

 

The sentiment on the front is from the Something Fancy Stamp Set, also in the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. I stamped “May the good you do come back to you” in Early Espresso Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and used a Something Fancy Die for cutting. Then, I used a Something Fancy Die, a size larger, to cut a frame from Dandy Delight Designer Paper in Granny Apple Green, and attached the glued labels on Dimensionals.

 

To complete the design, I used Dainty Delight Dies to cut two flowers from So Saffron Cardstock, with centers of Early Espresso Cardstock, and attached them with Dimensionals. 

 

Isn’t this a fun color combination? Be inspired by all of the designer’s creations, then add your design to our gallery.

Fragrant Flowers for Global Design Project 376

For this week’s Global Design Project, we get to CASE (copy and selectively edit) Connie Collin’s fantastic card. See how our designers “cased” Connie, then join in the fun, and add your design to our gallery.

 

I began with the large, floral image, from the new Fragrant Flowers Stamp Set, stamping it in Early Espresso Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock. Then, I used its Fragrant Flowers Die for cutting, and placed it on Dimensionals.

Fragrant Flowers Thanks

 

For the background, I used the same, Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder, with Very Vanilla Cardstock, 3 5/8″ X 4 7/8″. However, I used the “debossed” side, and layered it on Pool Party Cardstock, 3 3/4″ X 5″. This was layered on an Early Espresso Card Base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

The large sentiment is also from the Fragrant Flowers Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso Ink, and cut with it Fragrant Flowers Die. I attached it with Dimensionals, across the flowers, and my card was complete. Thank you, Connie!

2023 Happy New Year Card for Global Design Project 375

Happy New Year!!! I wish you all many blessings in 2023. I’m always excited for the beginning of a new year, and it was fun designing this card to celebrate, along with the other Global Design Project Designers. We’d love for you to create a party themed card, and share it in our gallery.

Our 2022-2024 In Colors seemed like the perfect colors for my “party” card, and I began with a Starry Sky card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I topped it with a pattern of Hues Of Happiness Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″. 

Next, I used our new Alphabet Dies (available January 5) to cut the word, “PARTY!” from 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper in Starry Sky, 3 1/4″ X 1 1/4″. Before running the letters through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, I attached the Glimmer Paper to a Foam Adhesive Sheet to give the letters dimension. The only difficulty was keeping track of the exclamation dot, because it’s tiny.

Happy New Year!

 

Once the letters were attached, I used a Brushed Shapes Die to cut the squiggle from the same Hues Of Happiness Designer Paper. Two additional squiggles were cut from Thick Basic White Cardstock to glue together for thickness.

The small, round shape was also cut with a Brushed Shapes Die in the five In Colors of cardstock: Starry Sky, Parakeet Party, Orchid Oasis, Sweet Sorbet, and Tahitian Tide. I attached them to the card front with tiny pieces of Dimensionals, cut from the edge of the sheet.

 

To complete my card, I cut “2023” from Starry Sky Cardstock, using a Warm Welcome Die. The horizontal rows in the designer paper assisted in keeping my letters and numbers evenly placed.

Dainty Delight Sneak Peek for Global Design Project 374

For this week’s Global Design Project, we have a sketch challenge. Since I just received the Dainty Flowers Designer Paper, as a FREE Sale-a-bration item, I HAD to give you a sneak peek. I’m in LOVE with it, and I believe you will be also; the artwork and colors are fabulous! And, it coordinates with the Dainty Delight Bundle in the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. All will be available January 5, 2023.

First, I used the long, curved, Dainty Delight Die to cut a branch from a green, patterned, Dainty Flowers design.

Dainty Flowers

 

Next, I used a Stylish Shapes Die to cut a square from a floral design, and placed it on Dimensionals. This die set is out of stock right now, but expected to be available the week of January 30.

The background is a pattern of wonderful splashes of color, cut 5 1/4″ X 4″, glued to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

Prior to gluing the background to the card base, I attached Soft Sea Foam Ribbon with Glue Dots. 

“Celebrate you” is from the Dainty Delight Stamp Set, stamped in Old Olive Ink on the designer paper, cut with a Stylish Shapes Die, and attached with Dimensionals.

Finally, I added three 2022-2024 Matte Decorative Dots below the sentiment.

 

Here is the Global Design Project sketch. See how the other designers used the sketch, then create your own design, and hang it in our gallery.

Happy New Year for Global Design Project 373

This week’s Global Design Project is a color challenge. See how our designers used the colors, then join in the fun!

By Su Mohr for GDP 373; Click aromasandart.com to go to my website for details! Featuring: Beauty Of Friendship Stamp Set, Brightest Glow Stamp Set, Grove Dies, Deckled Rectangles Dies; #happynewyearcards # #brightestglow #beautyoffriendship #grovedies #deer #treesoncards #colorcombos #gdp373 #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #stamping #stampinup #sumohr

Happy New Year

I began by using the largest Deckled Rectangles Die to cut Basic White Cardstock.  Then, I used a Blending Brush to color the paper with Tahitian Tide Ink. After coloring the background, I stamped the tree from the Beauty Of Friendship Stamp Set, and the sentiment, in Bermuda Bay Ink. “Happy New Year” is from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set.

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

 

The deer were cut from Blushing Bride Cardstock using Grove Dies. To add some texture and thickness, I cut the deer a second time from Awash In Beauty Designer Paper, and glued them together. I’ve heard that deer turn pink in the Winter. LOL

Baby deer was glued flat, while Mama deer’s feet were glued, but her body was attached with Dimensionals.

Some sparkle was added to the trees with my Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush, but it doesn’t show in the photos.
