Easter Bunny

 

My layout is from Global Design Project’s sketch challenge, which emphasizes the greeting. We’d love for you to play along, and add your card to our gallery.

First, I stamped the bunny, from the Springtime Joy Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. After cutting the bunny free from the paper, I colored her with six colors of Stampin’ Blends: Crumb Cake, Bronze, Rococo Rose, Flirty Flamingo, Mint Macaron, and Soft Sea Foam.

 

For her background, I used a Greenery Embossing Folder to emboss 3/4″ on the left side of Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. Then, I made a stencil by cutting an oval with the largest Layering Ovals Die from Basic White Cardstock, 4 X 5 1/4″. I taped the stencil over my embossed layer, and used a Blending Brush with Mint Macaron Ink for coloring.

Next, for additional stenciling, I taped a pattern of Forever Greenery Laser-Cut paper on top of the oval, and continued with my Blending Brush and Mint Macaron Ink. It was really fun coloring this “egg!” 

 

I’m sharing with the Paper Players.

Art Gallery Flower

 

I began with a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. This was layered with Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, embossed with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

The middle piece is Subtles 6X6″ Designer Paper in a Blushing Bride print, cut with an Ornate Layers Die. I love the detailed edge, don’t you?

 

For the focal point, I created a layered, Art Gallery, flower. I used two stamps, stamped in Real Red Ink (one on top of the other) on Basic White Cardstock, and used its die for cutting. Then, I used two more stamps for the layered part of the flower, cut with its die, and attached the parts with Dimensionals. 

Next, I stamped the stem & leaves in Bermuda Bay Ink, used its die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals.

 

The sentiment, “thank you,” is from the Art Gallery Stamp Set, stamped in Bermuda Bay Ink, cut with a Floral Gallery Die, and attached with Dimensionals.

Positive Thoughts for GDP 280

I don’t use a lot of ribbon on my cards, but today’s Global Design Project design showcases a Petal Pink Organdy bow. Isn’t it pretty?

By Su Mohr for GDP 280; Click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Positive Thoughts Stamp Set,Nature's Thoughts Dies, Ornate Frames Dies, Peony Garden Designer paper, Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon; #positivethoughts #nature'sthoughts #ornateframes #petalpinkorgandyribbon #peonygarden #casing #gdp280 #sumohr #aromasandart #colorcombos #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting

Petal Pink & Smoky Slate

 

I began by stamping a Positive Thoughts flower in Petal Pink Ink, randomly, on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I used a Nature’s Thoughts Die for cutting. Don’t you love the detailed edge? You can see the complete stamp and die sets in my Product List below. 

 

Next, I added some layers: First, the floral rectangle on Subtles 6X6 Designer Paper in a dotted pattern, 3 3/4″ X 5″, followed by a Smoky Slate, Peony Garden Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″, layered on a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

The sentiment, “Hugs Prayers Love,” is from the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set, stamped in Basic Gray Ink, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die. The fancy frame was cut from the same Peony Garden Designer Paper as the layer.

I attached the sentiment with Dimensionals, my beautiful bow with a Glue Dot, three, self-sticking pearls, and my Global Design Project was complete.

 

This week’s Global Design Project was to case Janneke De Jong. We’d love for you to play along, and hang your card in our gallery.

Dancing Doxies for GDP 279

Did you know that dogs can dance? Well, this pair of doxies proves that they can! They assured me that all they had to do was stand on their hind legs, and hold each other’s front paws.

By Su Mohr for GDP 279; Click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Hot Dog Stamp Set, Butterfly Bijou Designer Paper, Nothing's Better Than Stamp Set, Ornate Frames Dies, In Good Taste Designer Paper; #sumohr #aromasandart #gdp279 #hotdog #ingoodtaste #nothing'sbetterthan #dancing #dogs #dogsoncards #animalsoncards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stampinup #stamping #butterfliesoncards #sneakpeeks

Dancing Doxies

 

The doxies are from the, appropriately named,  Hot Dog Stamp Set. They knew everyone wouldn’t want to color them, so advised I show how cute they look, simply stamped, on In Good Taste Designer Paper. I agreed this woodgrain paper made nice fur, used my Paper Snips to set them free, and placed them on Dimensionals.

 

The doxies wanted to have a “brilliant” background, and chose the brand new, Butterfly Bijou Designer Paper. It’s part of the Butterfly Brilliance Collection, with stamps and dies, which will be in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Everyone gets to order it early, beginning March 2nd, so I agreed to let them show you a sneak peek of the paper. Isn’t it pretty?

I cut a 3 3/4″ X 5″ layer, from the 6″ X 6″ butterfly paper, and backed it with Basic Black Cardstock, 1/8″ larger, giving it a 1/16th” border. This was glued to a Coastal Cabana card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

For the sentiment, the doxies insisted on using the word “dance,” even though we found it in the retired, Beautiful You Stamp Set. I stamped it in Coastal Cabana Ink and used an Ornate Frames Die for cutting. Prior to cutting, I stamped the words, “Today’s Plan,” from the Nothing’s Better Than Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink. To complete the card, I attached the sentiment with Dimensionals to an Ornate Frame, cut from Coastal Cabana Cardstock.

 

This week’s Global Design Project is all about animals. I hope you are inspired to create a card, and hang it in our gallery.

Sea Turtle Thank You Card for GDP 278

Who could resist this adorable sea turtle? He swam onto my card before I could stop him, and I let him stay.

Sea Turtle’s Thank You

 

Prior to the sea turtle’s arrival, I painted lines across the middle of Basic White Cardstock (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) with Stampin’ Blends in five colors: Mint Macaron, Pool Party, Shaded Spruce, Just Jade, and Bermuda Bay.

 

Next, I used a Whale Done stamp to add some dots in Pool Party Ink, and some in gold that I heat embossed. Then, I used the Largest Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting. Using the same die, with the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die, I cut a frame from Brushed Metallic Cardstock. While cutting, I placed the dies together, and I have a nice center section, saved for another card.

 

After gluing the frame to my white layer, I glued my art piece to a Just Jade card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. And, that’s when the sea turtle appeared. I have to blame myself, because I cut him free from the Whale Of A Time Designer Paper, and Dimensionals were close by.

Fortunately, he was a very polite sea turtle, and wished to say “thank you,” which I found in the Special Someone Stamp Set. I stamped it in Just Jade Ink, and used the Special Day bubble die for cutting. He wanted to make sure everyone could see he was speaking, so I brushed the edges of the bubble with a Sponge Dauber and Just Jade Ink.

The sea turtle thought we needed more sparkle, so I obliged by adding some Whale Of A Time Sequins. Oops, they aren’t in my Product List, and if you need them, they are #152461.

 

Here is this week’s Global Design Project sketch, so you can see how this was my inspiration. I hope that you are inspired, as well, and will create a card that you’ll post in our gallery.

GDP 277 Valentine and January Winner Announcement

Welcome to February 1st, the month of Valentines. I love using hearts on cards year-round, but I go “heart crazy” in January and February. It was my mother’s favorite holiday, and I know she would like this card.

By Su Mohr for GDP 277; Click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Stitched Be Mine Dies, Textured Essentials Stamp Set, Potted Succulents Dies, Ornate Layers Dies, Tasteful Textile Embossing, Linen Thread; #valentines #valentinecards #hearts #heartsoncards #Quitecurvy #ornatelayers #colorchallenges #colorcombos #gdp277

Strung Hearts

 

Before I explain today’s card, I want to congratulate the winner of my January Drawing…..Yay, Sherriann F.!  You will receive a $20.00 or less Stampin’ Up! item of your choice from the current catalogs, so contact me with your choice.

All of my customers who ordered a minimum of $50.00 will receive the Whale Of A Time Sequins, plus one of my handmade cards, as soon as I receive my order from Stampin’ Up!

You can see my February gift offering below today’s card description.

 

 

Now, for today’s Valentine. First, I used a Textured Essentials stamp to give the three hearts a pretty, floral, pattern. I stamped them in Sahara Sand Ink, Rococo Rose Ink, and Blushing Bride Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock.

 

After stamping, I used a Stitched Be Mine Die for cutting, and punched two holes in each heart, stringing them with Linen Thread.

The backgound was created with Basic White Cardstock, cut with the largest Ornate Layers Die, and embossed with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

Before gluing the white layer to the Sahara Sand card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″), I attached the hearts with Dimensionals, and taped the Linen Thread to the back.

 

The sentiment is from the Quite Curvy Stamp Set, stamped in Sahara Sand Ink, and cut with a Potted Succulents Die. The complete sentiment is “made with love just for you,” but I eliminated “just for you” by masking (covering with paper) the words when I stamped.

To complete my Valentine, I added a few Woven Threads Sequins.

 

My inspiration for today’s Valentine was from the Global Design Project. They are perfect colors for Valentines, don’t you think? We’d love to see the cards you create, with these colors, hanging in our gallery. Please join in the fun!
