Textured Peony

 

Step by Step Instructions:

Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, and fold in the middle at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.

Glue a Square Vellum Doily to the card base, as shown.

Hand paint stripes of Soft Sea Foam with a Stampin’ Blend across Whisper White Cardstock, 3 1/2″ X 5″.

Use the Nature’s Thoughts Die to cut the striped layer, and adhere on top of the doily.

 

Cut the five “build a peony” flower parts from Very Vanilla Cardstock.

Emboss all, but the stamen, with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.

Brush the edges of the petals using a Sponge Dauber and Blushing Bride Ink.

Slide the flower parts together, smallest to largest, matching the bottom edge, and adding a dot of glue to hold them together.

Stamp three leaves in Soft Sea Foam Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with Peony Dies. Add color with a Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blend.

Attach the flower and two leaves with Dimensionals. You’ll add the third leaf after placing the sentiment.

 

The sentiment, “for you” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set. Stamp it in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, cut with the smallest Stitched Nested Labels Die, and tuck under the flower with a dot of glue. Now, add that third leaf.

For a touch of blue, like Manuela, add some Woven Threads Sequins, and you’re done!

Nothing’s Better Than Bundle for #GDP246

It’s so much fun using new products, and I’ve been looking forward to playing with the new bundle, Nothing’s Better Than. I have a sweet tooth, and I love this sentiment, ” Today’s plan: consume cookies.” Sometimes the truth hurts, and it can also be funny! LOL.

By Su Mohr for the Global Design Project Design Team #GDP246; Featuring Nothing's Better Than Stamp Set, Love You More Than Dies, Rainbow Glimmer Paper, Foam Adhesive Sheets; #humorouscards #cookies #cookiesoncards #nothing'sbetterthan #iloveyoumorethan #rainbowpaper #rainbowglimmerpaper #stampinup #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting

Consume Cookies

 

Follow these instructions, if you’d like to duplicate this card, so you’ll have cookies to consume:

Begin with a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base of Rich Razzleberry Cardstock.

Cut a 1″ X 5 1/4″ strip from the new  Rainbow Glimmer Paper, and glue to the right side of a 4″ X 5 1/4″ Whisper White Cardstock layer. It comes with two 12″ X 12″ pieces in a pack, and a little will go a long way.

For the word, “cookies,” cut a 2 1/4″ X 1″ piece of a Foam Adhesive Sheet. Peel the paper from one side, and adhere the same size piece of Rainbow Glimmer Paper. Place the Love You More Than Die on top, and run it through your die cutting machine. TIP: Run it through several times, if necessary, until there’s a clean cut. 

 

Stamp four cookies in Early Espresso Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and one on Crumb Cake. Color them by using the “solid” cookie stamp, stamped in Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped off on three of them.

Use the Love You More Than Die for cutting, and place them on Dimensionals.

 

Stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die, and place on Dimensionals.

 

You can see how the Global Design Project sketch provided inspiration for my design. I first saw bubbles, but they turned into cookies. What do you see? Come join the fun, and play along.

A Single Poppy “In Color”

Stampin’ Up’s! new 2020-2022 In Colors are gorgeous, and today’s card, for the Global Design Project, is using three of them.

By Su Mohr for Global Design Project; Click READ or VIUSIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: 2020-2022 In Colors, Tasteful Textile embossing, Ornate Layers Dies, Poppy Moments Dies, Rooted In Nature Stamp Set; #gdp245 #poppies #poppiesoncards #incolors #stampinup #flowersoncards #poppymoments #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy#cardmaking #papercrafting #cardchallenges #colorcombos

Poppy “In Color”

 

 

It was simple to cut the poppy flower and leaves using the Poppy Moments Dies. The poppy frame was cut from Magenta Madness Cardstock, the flower center from Bumble Bee Cardstock, and the leaves from Just Jade Cardstock. Don’t you love the names?

I filled in the spaces on the poppy by using the “solid” die to cut one piece of Vellum, and glued the two together.

TIP: Match the poppy frame with the vellum before gluing, because if you move it afterwards, you’ll smear the glue.

 

To make the poppy “pop,” I gave it a white background of Whisper White Cardstock, embossed with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. This was layered on a Thick Whisper White card base.

 

The pretty strip beneath the poppy was made with an Ornate Layers Die, and provided a perfect spot for the sentiment. “Be strong, be happy, be you” is from the  Rooted In Nature Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink.

The strip is “popped up” on Dimensionals, along with the “popped up” poppy!  hee hee

Global Design Project Birthday Card For All

It’s always fun to CASE a designer, and today’s birthday card is a CASE of Krista Frattin’s birthday card. I’m naming this “birthday card for all,” because I think it’s appropriate for male, female, young, or younger. 

By Su Mohr for #GDP244; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Painted Labels Dies, Peaceful Moments Stamp Set, Ornate Layers Dies, Tasteful Textile embossing; Ornate Layers Dies; #peacefulmoments #paintedlabelsdies #ornatelayersdies #tastefultextile #birthdaycards #masculinebirthdaycards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #cardsforguys #cardchallenges #gdp244

Birthday card for all

I began with a Sahara Sand card base, topped with a layer of Sahara Sand Cardstock. This layer was cut with an Ornate Layers Die, and then embossed with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

A second Ornate Layers Die was used to cut the horizontal strip from Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper.

 

The focal point, circle, was cut from Whisper White Cardstock, using a Painted Labels Die, which you see in the first picture.

“Happy Birthday,” from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set, was stamped in Balmy Blue Ink, before placing the circle on Dimensionals.

 

The last detail was adding some Woven Threads Sequins, along with retired, gold star sequins. And, there you have a very “easy to make” birthday card.

Vellum Poppies

 

I love the Poppy Moments Dies, so I used two to cut flower frames from Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I used two dies to cut vellum that fit the shapes of the frames. A tiny bit of glue was used to attach them together, and I added Dimensionals to the centers. 

 

For the background, I cut a piece of the new, gorgeous, Forever Greenery Designer Paper with an Ornate Layers Die. Isn’t the detailed edge fabulous?

 

The shiny gold is from the new Forever Gold Laser-Cut Designer Paper. This intricate branch is amazing! I used a border from the DSP to cut the poppy centers (Poppy Moments Dies) and “welcome” (Well Written Dies).

TIP: A very, very, very light touch of Tombow Liquid Glue holds the branch in place. Avoid touching the gold with gluey fingers, because it will leave a smudge. Ask me how I know, LOL.

The card base is Pretty Peacock, and I embossed the front with my new, favorite embossing folder, Tasteful Textiles.

 

This card will be welcoming one of my new team members. If you’ve thought about joining Stampin’ Up! for the discount and other benefits, I’ll tell you a secret: June will be the month to join! Tune in June 3rd, this Wednesday, when the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog goes live (everyone gets to order) and I’ll fill you in on the details.
