Welcome to Global Design Project’s weekly challenge! For today’s sketch design, I chose to feature a returning favorite, the Snow Wonder Stamp Set with coordinating, Snow Time Dies. Who doesn’t love an adorable snowman?

Sketch for a Snowman

 

I began the scene with a favorite pattern of Harvest Meadow Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″. After gluing this to a Crumb Cake card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, I cut a 3″ X 3″ square from the same designer paper. This was backed with Thick Basic White Cardstock, 1/8″ larger, for a 1/16″ border, and attached to the card front with Dimensionals. Then, I used a Seasonal Swirls Die to cut a wreath from Champagne Foil, and glued it to the square, leaving the right side free.

 

Now for the focal point! I stamped the Snow Wonder snowman in Soft Suede Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, and used its Snow Time Die for cutting. 

Next, I stamped the sentiment, “Happy Christmas,” in Balmy Blue Ink, and used its die for cutting. The snowman wanted to hold the sign, so I glued it to his belly before attaching him with Dimensionals.

 

For a bit of blue sparkle, I added a few Artistry Blooms Sequins. Don’t you love self-adhesive sequins?

I also decorated the envelope flap by embossing it with a Meadow Moments Embossing Folder, which you can see in the first photo.

 

Here is the fun sketch for you to use for inspiration. I’d love to see your creation in our gallery.

Joy to the World for Global Design Project 313

Welcome to this week’s Global Design Project; a fun color challenge, using Real Red, Basic Black, and Sahara Sand.

Joy to the World is one of my favorite Christmas carols, and the musical notes are on our Merry Melody Embossing Folder. I’m not a musician, and only know this because I was told. Since it’s a very old carol, I wanted to make the sheet music look old and worn.

Featuring: Merry melody Embossing Folder, Playful Alphabet Dies, Christmas Trimmings Dies, Blending Brushes; #joytotheworld #merrymelody #sheetmusic #musiconcards #alphabetdies #playfulalphabet #blendingbrushes #cardtechniques #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart.com/shop #stamping #stampinup #gdp313

Joy to the World

 

First, I embossed Basic White Cardstock, 5″ X 3 3/4″, with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder. Then, I used Sahara Sand Ink and a Blending Brush for coloring. The fun part was roughing it up by dragging a scissor blade along the edges, and I gave it more crumpling with my fingers.

The background for my Christmas Carol is a Real Red card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, topped with Regals 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper in a Real Red plaid. 

 

Now, for the word, “JOY.” It was created with Playful Alphabet Dies, Pattern Party Designer Paper, and Foam Adhesive Sheets.

I attached a 1″X 2″ piece of black, Pattern Party Designer Paper, to a 1″ X 2″ piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet, placed the letters on top, and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Then, I turned the letters upside down, and ran it through a second time to make sure it was a good cut.

The Foam Adhesive Sheet is an easy way to give the small letters wonderful dimension, and it’s easy to peel the backing and stick them to the card front, especially when they are purposely crooked.

 

For a bit of embellishment, I added some holly and berries, cut with Christmas Trimmings Dies. The leaves were cut from Basic White Cardstock, colored with a Blending Brush and Mossy Meadow Ink. The berries were cut from Real Red Cardstock, and all were glued flat on the sheet music.

 

I hope you’ll be inspired by the entire design team, and add your creation to our gallery.

Welcoming Window for Global Design Project 312

For this week’s Global Design Project, we get to CASE Madeleine Mrotzek’s gorgeous card. 

 

To CASE Madeleine, I used the Welcoming Window Stamp Set, Window Flower Box Dies, and Peach Dies for a clean & simple card. You can see details of these items in my Product List below.

Beginning with the bricks in Blushing Bride Ink, I stamped three times in each corner of  Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. Then, I stamped “Welcome” in Crumb Cake Ink, and glued this layer to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Welcome Window

 

The window was cut with a Window Flower Box Die from Crumb Cake Cardstock, and raised with a thin strip of Dimensionals along the middle of the frame. This seemed enough support, without having to put Dimensionals on the narrower sides.

 

The blossoming branch was created with Peach Dies. The branch is Crumb Cake Cardstock, the leaves are Pear Pizzazz Cardstock, and the blossoms are Flirty Flamingo Cardstock. After gluing this in place, my CASE card was complete.

 

I hope you’ll be inspired by the entire design team, and add your creation to our gallery.

Stitched Leaves for Global Design Project 311

Leaves are so beautiful; they are perfect for cards, and the theme for this week’s Global Design Project.

By Su Mohr for GDP 311; Click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Stitched Leaves Dies, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Cork Specialty paper, Beauty Of The Earth DSP, Simply Elegant Trim, Love Of Leaves Stamp Set; #loveofleaves #stitchedleaves #stitchedrectangles #gdp311 #cork #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart.com/shop #fallcards #cardthemes

Fall Leaves

 

I began my design with a Rich Razzleberry card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. The next layer is a wonderful pattern of Beauty Of The Earth Designer Paper, cut with the largest Stitched Rectangles Die.

 

The focal point is a leaf, cut from Cork Specialty Paper, using a Stitched Leaves Die, which you can see in the first photo. Next, I used a Stitched Rectangles Die (2 1/4″ X 3 1/2″) to cut a Basic White Cardstock rectangle. Then, I used the same leaf die to cut the stitched leaf outline.

The border was created with Brushed Metallic Cardstock, cut with a Stitched Rectangles Die, one size larger.

After gluing the layers together, I attached it with Dimensionals. I used three strips of left-over edges of Dimensionals. You know, the ones that pile up, but we can’t throw them away. LOL!

 

“Hello” is from the coordinating, Love Of Leaves Stamp Set, stamped in Rich Razzleberry Ink, and cut with a Stitched Leaves Die. Isn’t this leaf cute? I attached it with Dimensionals, and added a bow of gold, Simply Elegant Trim.

 

Our designers have lots of gorgeous leaf designs to share with you. I hope you are inspired, and will hang your creation in our gallery.

I’m also sharing with TGIF.

Poinsettias for Global Design Project 310

This week’s Global Design Project is a sketch, which is always a fun challenge. Since I’ve been making Christmas cards, the three flowers in the sketch are poinsettias. 

For GDP 310; Click aromasandart.com to go to my website for details! Featuring: Poinsettia Dies, Tidings & Trimmings Stamp Set, Ornate layers Dies, Metallic Pearls, Brushed Metallic Cardstock; #poinsettias #flowers #poinsettiasoncards #tidingsofchristmas #christmascards #holidaycards #holiday2021 #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart.com/shop #stampinup #stamping

Noel Poinsettias

 

Here is the sketch. Please join in the fun, and add your creation to our gallery.

First, using a Blending Brush, I colored Basic White Cardstock with Real Red Ink. Second, I used a Detailed Poinsettia Die to cut the petals, and an embossing die to make the veins of the two larger poinsettias. The smaller poinsettia was cut and embossed with the same die. Two rounds of petals were cut for each poinsettia, and attached with Dimensionals.

For the middle of the sketch, I used an Ornate Layers Die to cut Thick Basic White Cardstock, and stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen Ink.

“Noel” is from the Tidings and Trimmings Stamp Set, which fit nicely between the poinsettias. Then, I glued the middle die-cut to green, striped, Tidings of Christmas Designer Paper, 5 1/4″ X 4″. The card base is Thick Basic White Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

The final step was adding a touch of gold. The poinsettia centers are Metallic Pearls, and the sprig is Brushed Metallic Cardstock, cut with a Poinsettia Die.

Stitched Leaves & Pretty Pumpkin for GDP 309

What’s black and white, and Cinnamon Cider all over? Today’s Global Design Project! This week is a fun color challenge; black and white, and a color of your choice. I chose Cinnamon Cider for my Fall card with Stitched Leaves. Aren’t the leaves pretty, cut from Expressions in Ink Designer Paper? And, I love that there are dies to “emboss” the stitching.

By Su Mohr for GDP 309; Click aromasandart.com to go to my website for details! Featuring: Detailed Pumpkin Dies, Pretty Pumpkins Stamp Set, Expressions In Ink Designer paper, Ornate layers Dies, Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, Stitched Leaves Dies, Black & White Gingham Ribbon; #prettypumpkins #expressionsinink #ornatelayers #detailedpumpkins #stitchedleaves #fallcards #pumpkins #pumpkinsoncards #leaves #leavesoncards #gdp309 #thanksgivingcards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart.com/shop

Pumpkin & Leaves

 

After cutting the leaves, I stamped a pumpkin, from the Pretty Pumpkins Stamp Set, in Stazon Black Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, and used a Detailed Pumpkins Die for cutting. The background is a layer of Basic White Cardstock, cut with the largest Ornate Layers Die, and embossed with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

 

Prior to embossing the layer, I stamped the sentiment in Cinnamon Cider Ink. “So thankful for you” is from the Pretty Pumpkins Stamp Set. The layer is glued to a Cinnamon Cider card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Did you notice the cute tie on the pumpkin? It is Black & White Gingham Trim, colored with a Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blend. Stampin’ Blends have alcohol content, making them great coloring tools for ribbon, because they dry quickly.
