Read All About It!

 

This week’s Global Design Project is a sketch challenge, which is always a great source of inspiration. See what our designers created, then add your design to our gallery!

 

For today’s card, I began by stamping the birthday pig in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and using his Playful Piggy Die for cutting. The image was easy to color with Stampin’ Blends in four colors: Ivory, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and Parakeet Party. After coloring, I attached the pig with Dimensionals.

 

Next, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black Ink, used its Playful Piggy Die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals. Then, mimicking the sketch, I glued five, For Everything Fancy Sequins, in place.

 

The crooked newsprint in the background is actually Layering Vellum Designs, cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die. It is secured to the Thick Basic White card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″) by adding glue beneath the pig, the sentiment, and the sequins. I used this trick to keep the glue from showing.

Soft Seedlings for Global Design Project 361

This week’s Global Design Project is a color challenge, using Parakeet Party, Shaded Spruce, and Flirty Flamingo.

In the Round

 

My design began with a large, pink, circle. First, I cut two pieces of Basic White Cardstock, 41/4″ X 5 1/2″, making a template with one by using the largest Layering Circles Die to cut a hole. Masking Tape was applied to hold the two in place, while using a Blending Brush with Flirty Flamingo Ink.

It’s fun removing the template to see a perfectly inked circle!

 

Next, I stamped the leaf image from the Soft Seedlings Stamp Set in Parakeet Party Ink and Shaded Spruce Ink. on Basic White Cardstock.  After fussy cutting the leaves, I had the idea to cut the top portion of the leaves with the Layering Circles Die, to make them fit within the circle.

Once the leaves were positioned in the circle, I used the Stamparatus to place the seedlings, which I stamped three times in Flirty Flamingo.

 

 To add a bit more detail, I used the largest Deckled Rectangles Die for cutting a border around my design, and attached it with Dimensionals to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

The sentiment is from the Soft Seedlings Stamp Set, stamped in Shaded Spruce Ink, and cut with a Deckled Rectangles Die. I used the 2 3/4″ X 4″ die, making two cuts for the desired size.

 

After being inspired by our designers, please get creative with this color combination, and hang your design in our gallery

I’m also sharing with The Paper Players.

Leaf Fall for Global Design Project 360

This week’s Global Design Project is to CASE Wilma De Korte, and her inspiring Fall card. I love her clean & simple design, and I incorporated the same Fall colors. Won’t you join in the fun, and hang your design in our gallery?

 

To begin, I used an Aspen Trees Die to cut two leaves from Basic White Cardstock. Then, I used Sponge Daubers to color the leaves with Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze Ink, and placed them on Dimensionals.

By Su Mohr for GDP 360; Click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details!

Fall leaves

 

 

For the background, I used the largest Deckled Rectangles Die to cut Basic White Cardstock, and embossed it with the Leaf Fall Embossing Folder. Isn’t this embossing folder perfect for Fall cards?

 

After embossing, I stamped splotches and dots in Crumb Cale Ink with stamps from the Perched In a Tree Stamp Set.

“Wishing you abundant joy & peace, ” was stamped in Early Espresso Ink, also from the Perched In A Tree Stamp Set.

Once the stamping was complete, I glued the layer to a Crumb Cake card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. The last detail was adding three Fine Sparkle Adhesive Backed Gems.

Apple Harvest for Global Design Project 359

This week’s Global Design Project is a theme challenge, Autumn/Fall. What a perfect time to show you the Apple Harvest Stamp Set with its new, exclusive, Apple Blossoms Dies! And the great news is, you can order it right now! You’ll find all six of the stamp sets with exclusive dies listed below; the “Perfect Partners” promotion.

I began by stamping the branch of apples and leaves in Early Espresso Ink on Crumb Cake Cardstock. Then, I used its Apple Blossoms Die for cutting, and colored with  Stampin’ Up Watercolor pencils. I colored in a small circular motion, without water, using Garden Green, Granny Apple Green, Cherry Cobbler, and Early Espresso.

Apple Harvest Thanks

 

The background was created with a Split Card Textures Die and Crumb Cake Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. This was glued to a Crumb Cake card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. 

 

“Thanks” was cut with two Amazing Thanks Dies; the bubble was cut from Early Espresso Cardstock, and the word was cut from Crumb Cake Cardstock. After gluing “thanks” flat, I raised the branch of apples on Dimensionals, and my Apple Harvest card was complete.

“Congratulations” is from the Charming Sentiments Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, cut with its Sentiment Silhouettes Die, and attached with Dimensionals.

Sneak Peek of Apple Blossoms Dies for Global Design Project 357

This week’s Global Design Project is a color challenge, using Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo and Tahitian Tide. The colors made me think of apple blossoms against a blue sky, and I was excited to give you a sneak peek of a new die set, Apple Blossoms Dies, that will be available in September.

By Su Mohr for GDP 357; Click aromasandart.com to go to my website for details! Featuring: Apple Harvest Stamp Set, Apple Blossoms Dies; #appleblossoms #appleharvest #applesoncards #fruitoncards #colorcombos #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stamping #stampinup #cardchallenges #gdp357 #globaldesignproject #sumohr #friendshipcards #perfectpartners

Apple Blossoms

 

The dies coordinate with the Apple Harvest Stamp Set from the 2022 July-December Mini Catalog that is available now, which you can see in my Product List below. Beginning September, the dies can be ordered (#160255), or in a bundle for a 10% savings (#162526).

 

I began by using an Apple Blossom Die to give scalloped sides to Basic White Cardstock, 3 1/4″ X 5 1/2″. Then, I used a Blending Brush with Tahitian Tide Ink to create the sky for a background.

 

Next I used Apple Blossom Dies to cut two branches from Soft Suede Cardstock, seven leaves from Pool Party Cardstock, three blossoms from Basic White Cardstock, and three blossom centers from Flirty Flamingo Cardstock.

 

After gluing everything in place, I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede Ink on Basic White Cardstock, used another Apple Blossom Die for cutting, and attached it with Mini Dimensionals. “The greatest gift is a good friend” is one of  three sentiments in the Apple Harvest Stamp Set. Don’t you love it?

For a bit of embellishment, I placed Iridescent Pearls in the center of the blossoms.

 

See what our designers created, then play with the colors, and hang your design in our gallery.
