Nothing’s Better Than Ice Cream

If you looked in my freezer, it would be unusual to find fewer than two quarts of ice cream. This sentiment, from the Nothing’s Better Than Stamp Set, rings true for me. I grew up eating Carnation ice cream, followed by 31 Flavors, and now, it doesn’t matter, it’s all good!

Ice Cream

 

The first thing I did was cut “ice cream” from Melon Mambo, 6X6 Brights Designer Paper. I attached the designer paper to a 1″ strip 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.

 

The background is Basic White Cardstock (5 1/4″ X 4″) on a Thick Basic White card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″). I added a piece of Basic White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 2 1/2″, that I cut from corner to corner, and embossed with the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder. 

The little flags were cut from Balmy Blue Cardstock with a Happy Die.

The sentiment was stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with Ornate Frames Dies. I get a kick out of the humorous words!

 

I was inspired by TGIF.

A Touch Of Ink Hummingbird

There’s only one more week of Sale-A-Bration, where you can earn FREE stamp sets. If you like birds, you won’t want to miss out on getting this free set, A Touch Of Ink, with this fabulous hummingbird.

By Su Mohr for TGIF; Click aromasandart to go to my blog for details! Featuring: A Touch Of Ink Stamp Set, Gold Hoops, Layering Circles Dies, Stampin' Blends Markers, Tasteful Textile embossing; #birds #birdsoncards #hummingbirds #goldhoopsoncards #atouchofink #coloring #thankyoucards #hansmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart #aromasandart.com/shop

Hummingbird & Gold Hoop

 

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.

I stamped the hummingbird, and the flowers, in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I colored them with Stampin’ Blends in six colors: Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Mango Melody, and Daffodil Delight.

 

Next, I fussy cut the hummingbird, and used a Layering Circles Die to cut the flowers. The one that’s approximately 2″ is just the right size to glue a Gold Hoop Embellishment to it. After adhering, I attached the bird and flowers to the card front with Dimensionals.

 

The sentiment, “Thank you so much,” was stamped in Memento Black Ink, cut with a Layering Circles Die, and glued to a scalloped circle of Gold Foil to coordinate with the Gold Hoop. I glued this to the card front, a spec beneath the Gold Hoop.

Clear Epoxy Droplets were the final touch for my Sale-A-Bration thank you card.

 

I was inspired by TGIF.

Art Gallery Hand-Painted “Fabric”

The hand-painted designs of the Fine Art Floral Paper are so pretty, and I gave this print (5″ X 3 3/4″) some texture, so it looks like fabric.

By Su Mohr for TGIF; Click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, Floral Gallery Dies, Art Gallery Stamp Set, Layering Square Dies, Brushed Metallic Cardstock, Subtle Textured Embossing Folder; #thankyoucards #sumohr #aromasandart.com #floralgallerydesignerpaper #artgallery #floralgallery #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stamping #floralcards #cardsketches #stampinup #justwanttosay

Hand-painted “fabric”

 

After rolling the floral paper through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder, I glued it to a Mossy Meadow card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Next, I cut a square from Very Vanilla Cardstock, using the largest, plain, Layering Squares Die. Then, I used the Floral Galley Die to cut “just want to say” from the square, added texture, and glued it to the card front.

To complete the lettering, I cut “just want to say” from Brushed Metallic Cardstock, and glued the words in the holes. This is called the “inlaid” technique.

 

“Thank you” is from the Art Gallery Stamp Set, stamped in Night of Navy Ink, and cut with a Floral Gallery Die.

While attaching the sentiment with Mini Dimensionals, a ladybug landed on the card. Isn’t it cute? Scroll on down to see how you can get some ladybugs, as a gift from me.

Hot Dog Stitched With Whimsy

It’s always exciting to receive new product, and a box arrived on my doorstep yesterday. The January-June 2021 Catalog has so much to love, I couldn’t get it all at once. But, I have a feeling the Hot Dog Stamp Set and Stitched With Whimsy Dies will become fast favorites.

By Su Mohr for TGIF; Click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Hot Dog Stamp Set, Stitched With Whimsy Dies, Be Mine Stitched Dies, Peony Garden Designer paper; #hotdog #dogs #dogsoncards #stitchedwithwhimsy #hearts #heartsoncards #valentines #lovecards #whimsicalcards #cardsforkids #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stamping #sumohr #aromasandart #stampinup #aromasandart.com/shop

Puppy Love

 

I couldn’t wait to give the Stitched With Whimsy Dies a roll through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. This die is the second to largest, and fits perfectly on a  3 1/2″ X 4 3/4″ piece of Basic White Cardstock. The dies are debossing tools, so rather than completely cutting, they leave a detailed, stitched impression in the paper. You can see all the sizes in my Product List below.

After admiring the whimsical stitching, I backed the white layer with Real Red Cardstock, 1/8″ larger, giving it a 1/16″ border. Then, I glued both to a Smoky Slate card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

Next, I stamped one of the smiling dogs from the Hot Dog Stamp Set, cut him free, and colored him with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. His smile is contagious, isn’t it?

 

In addition to cute pups, this stamp set also has some fun sentiments to coordinate.  I stamped, “I love you, that’s the long and short of it,” on Peony Garden Designer Paper in Petal Pink. I liked the texture of this paper, rather than using solid cardstock. Then, I cut the heart with a Be Mine Stitched Die, and backed it for thickness.

The heart and pup were attached with Dimensionals, and my card, using exciting, new, product was complete. I’m already planning my next card with the Hot Dog Stamp Set that I’ll post on Wednesday!

 

I was inspired by the colors at TGIF.

Today’s card has Mother Hen welcoming her hatched brood. I stamped the hen and one egg in Memento Black Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock. After cutting, they were colored with Stampin’ Blends, pictured above: Mango Melody, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, and Ivory, and placed on Dimensionals.

Three of the eggs were stamped on Basic White Cardstock, and I used an Ornate Layers Die for cutting.

 

The background is plaid, Berry Delightful Designer Paper, part of the FREE Sale-A-Bration Berry Blessings Set with a qualifying order of $100. I used the largest Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting.

 

“Welcome” is from the Welcoming Window Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, and cut with a Special Day Die. This bubble die is great for helping animals talk, don’t you think?

Berry Blessings with Quite Curvy

Today’s card is a CASE (copy and share everything) of a card on page 23 of Stampin’ Up’s January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. 

By Su Mohr for TGIF; Click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Berry Blessings Bundle, Quite Curvy Bundle, Ladybug Trinkets; #berryblessings #quitecurvy #curvydies #ladybugs #strawberries #strawberriesoncards #SAB #stampinup #stampinup2021 #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stamping #caseing #sumohr #aromasandart

Curvy CASE

 

When you need inspiration, look no further than a Stampin’ Up! catalog. There you will find oodles of samples. Send me an email, if you live in the USA, and would like a catalog.

 

I was inspired by TGIF’s challenge, catalog inspiration.

 

I began with a 4″ X 5 1/4″ piece of basic White Cardstock, and used a Curvy Die to make two cuts. I looked at the sample in the catalog to judge the space I wanted in the middle.

There were many choices of designer paper to highlight in the middle. Rather than hydrangeas, I chose a piece of my favorite, Berry Delightful Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″.

Besides being gorgeous paper, it’s one of the Sale-A-Bration items that comes with a coordinating, Berry Blessings Stamp Set, for FREE with a qualifying $100 order. Who can resist that!? You can see the complete bundle in my Product List below.

 

 

After gluing the white, curved, pieces to the strawberry paper, I glued this to a Garden Green card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Next, I positioned the sentiment from the Quite Curvy Stamp Set on my Stamparatus, and stamped, “thinking of you makes my day,” in Garden Green Ink. In retrospect, I should have done this before any gluing, and was relieved it stamped nicely.

 

I cut a strawberry and leaf from the designer paper, and attached them with Dimensionals. Then, an adorable ladybug landed right on my project, and much too cute to shoo away. Don’t you think? Plus, I’ve always heard that ladybugs bring good luck.

Shhhh, she’s secure on a Glue Dot.

 

 

My January Host Code Gift

Add my Host Code ( 9YBJS4NM ) in the box provided when you order a minimum of $50.00 in the month of January, and I will send the Whale Of A Time Sequins to you in February.

You will love the colors, plus there are little shells that will go perfectly with the Sand & Sea Suite, pages 40-42 in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.
