Sparkling Poppy

 

I was excited to use my Poppy Moments Dies, because they are back in stock, and available at my store! Don’t you love this die-cut poppy from Sparkle Glimmer Paper? And, the set comes with a choice of flowers, leaves and flower centers. You can see the three I used, and the complete set can be seen in my Product List.

I highly recommend the Painted Poppies Stamp Set (#153827) to go along with these fabulous dies!

 

I used a Sponge Dauber to apply Melon Mambo Ink to the poppy, and Mint Macaron to the Whisper White Cardstock leaves. The flower’s center was cut from Night of Navy cardstock, matching the layer on the Thick Whisper White Cardstock card base.

 

The sentiment, “Leave a little sparkle wherever you go,” is from the Leave A Little Sparkle Stamp Set, and stamped in Night of Navy Ink.

I added a few Iridescent Sequins for a bit more sparkle. The Take Your Pick Tool makes picking up those sequins very easy. You can see this multi-tasking tool in my Product List.

 

How do you like my CAS (clean & simple) card with sparkle? I was inspired by The Paper Players.

I was also inspired by the colors from Global Design Project.

Timeless Tulips Golden Love

The Timeless Tulip stamp set is great for creating wonderful 3D flowers. There is a Tulip Punch, which really makes things easy, but I cut these by hand.

By Su Mohr for GDP; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Timeless Tulip Stamp Set, Ornate Layers Dies, Ornate Garden DSP, Well Written Dies, Sweet Silhouette Dies, Bouquet Bunch Dies, Gold Foil; #lovecards #timelesstulips #ornategarden #ornatelayers #flowersoncards #tulips #anniversarycards #3Dcards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #papercrafting #cardmaking

3D Tulips

 

First, I stamped two flowers, and four leaves, in Daffodil Delight Ink on Watercolor Paper. I’m calling the ink, “Tulip Delight” for this card. And, I’m turning the leaves into petals, arranged as you see, to make a 3D flower. The Watercolor Paper gives the flowers nice texture.

TIP: I needed to turn two of the petals to the backside, and use a Sponge Dauber to color them, in order to make them fit properly. Isn’t that fun?

Before adding the stems and leaves, I chose background paper from Ornate Gardens DSP, and cut it with an Ornate Layers Die. Beneath it is Whisper White Cardstock, cut with the largest Ornate Frames Die on a Thick Whisper White card base.

 

The Ornate Gardens DSP is Old Olive with a pretty, gold design, so I wanted to use Gold Foil for the stems and leaves. The leaves were cut with a Bouquet Bunch Die, and the stems are from Sweet Silhouettes Dies.

 

Last, but not least, “love” is from Well Written Dies, also cut from Gold Foil.

 

I was inspired by Global Design Project.

Ornate Layers and Bird Ballad

It’s exciting to use new products, and the “early release” Ornate Layers Dies worked perfectly for today’s layout. I had fun combining the new die-cuts with Annual Catalog Bird Ballad Designer Paper.

Featuring: Ornate Layers Dies, Bird Ballad DSP, Layering Squares Dies, Subtle Textured embossing, Seam Binding Ribbon; #ornatelayers #ornategarden #birdballad #birdsoncards #friendshipcards #cardsketches #cardchallenges #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy#cardmaking #papercrafting

Ornate Layers

 

I began with the long, narrow, Ornate Layers Die, and a Petal Pink print of Bird Ballad Designer Paper. Doesn’t this pattern look like dotted Swiss fabric.  When I was in my teens, one of my favorite dresses was made of Dotted Swiss, and I love this feminine paper.

A second Ornate Layers Die was used to cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I stamped “hello,” from the Country Home Stamp Set, in Mossy Meadow Ink.

 

Next, I used a Layering Squares Die to cut a sweet bird from the Bird Ballad DSP for my focal point. I framed the bird with a scrap of Mossy Meadow Cardstock, cut with a scalloped Layering Squares Die. This itty, bitty edge really makes a difference.

I wanted to keep the background simple, and used Whisper White Cardstock with Subtle Textured embossing on a Thick Whisper White card base.

 

The design was completed with a bow of Seam Binding Ribbon, and three little pearls.

 

My layout is from CAS(E) this sketch.

 

I’m also sharing with Global Design Project’s Spring theme.

Tropical Oasis Pineapple

Aloha! I hope this pineapple brings you some cheer! This Tropical Oasis Designer Paper gives me a warm, happy feeling, and today I’m choosing to be happy, in spite of the quarantines surrounding us.

Featuring: In The Tropics Dies, Tropical Oasis DSP, Coastal Weave embossing, Banner Triple Punch; #aloha #pineapples #pinapplesoncards #tropicalcards #inthetropics #tropicaloasis #tropicalfruit #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #cardsketches #friendshipcards #fruitoncards

Aloha Pineapple

 

First, I layered the tropical fruit DSP on a Thick Whisper White card base. Next, I used my Paper Trimmer and Banner Triple Punch to make a Whisper White, banner, 2″ wide. This punch is great for making three sizes of banners with perfectly cut ends. Click on it in my Product List for more details.

Before gluing the banner to the card front, I embossed it with the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder. The Coastal Weave Embossing Folder happens to be my Host Code gift to you for the month of April! See details below.

 

I created the pineapple with In The Tropics Dies, and Tropical Oasis Designer Paper. Isn’t it sweet?

 

A third die from the same set was used to cut “aloha,” and I tied it to the pineapple with Linen Thread. I layered all three die-cuts for thickness; the pineapple with Whisper White, and “aloha” with Soft Suede.

 

My inspiration was from the Global Design Project challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope this adds a little cheer to your day.

“Together We Can Get Through Anything”

The sentiment from the stamp set, Perfectly Framed, is perfect for today’s uncertain times, “Together we can get through anything.”

By Su Mohr for GDP; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Perfectly Framed Stamp Set, Nature's Thoughts Dies, Ornate Frames Dies, Scripty embossing; #friendshipcards #encouragement #cardchallenges #colorcombos #perfectlyframed # naturesthoughts #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting

Together

 

I began with a Thick Whisper White card base topped with a distressed layer of Whisper White Cardstock. First, I painted the cardstock with a Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend. This was followed by spritzing it with water, drying it with the Heat Tool, and embossing with the Scripty Embossing Folder. Then, I roughed up the edge with my Paper Snips, a technique I learned from my friend, Peggy Noe. 

TIP: Scrape one scissor blade (like a knife) along the paper edge. Repeat until the desired effect is achieved.

 

The flowers were made with a Nature’s Thoughts Die and inked paper in the colors of Petal Pink and So Saffron. The flower die is unique, because the little petals can be pushed from behind and lifted.

The white sprigs are also a Nature’s Thought’s die.

 

I stamped the sentiment in Pool Party Ink, and used an Ornate Frames Die for cutting. The final touch was a bow of Seam Binding Ribbon and Iridescent Sequins.

 

I was inspired by Global Design Project.

When you’re ready to shop, don’t forget to type my Host Code in the box provided. For a minimum $50.00 order, I will send you pearls in April. Yay!

 

Only a few more days of Sale-A-Bration. Take advantage, before it’s too late!

Sale-A-Bration Vellum and Thoughtful Blooms

Sale-A-Bration will end March 31, and I really don’t want you to miss out on two great items: Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set, and Small Bloom Punch. I used both on today’s “thank you” card.

Small Bloom Thank You

 

I began with a Thick Whisper White card base, embossing the front with the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder. I was excited to use the new, So Very Vellum DSP, a Sale-A-Bration, “Second Release” item. It comes in three super colors that are embossed, which you can see in my Product List. I cut a strip of Purple Posy Vellum, 2″ X 5 1/2″, and backed it with Purple Posy Cardstock, 2 1/4″ X 5 1/2″.

TIP: Use tiny dots of Liquid Glue behind the vellum’s  embossed dots to keep the glue from being visible.

 

Next, I stamped the flowers in Melon Mambo (full strength, and stamped off) and Highland Heather ink (stamped off), and cut with the Small Bloom Punch. The leaves are from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set, stamped in Granny Apple Green Ink, and cut with the Leaf Punch.

 

Finally, I used two Stitched Shapes Dies to cut the Thick Whisper White circle, and rim of Purple Posy. 

“Thank you” is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink. I dotted the blooms with Black Jewels (retired) for a bit more black.

 

Can you see how I “CASED” the designer at Global Design Project?
