Rings Of Love New Home Card

Sale-a-bration is coming July 1st, and  Rings of Love Designer Paper is one of the FREE items you can choose with a qualifying order. This sweet home is one of the patterns in pack, which I cut with a Stylish Shapes Die. Then, I backed it with Soft Succulent Cardstock, cut with a Stylish Shapes Die that was one size larger, and placed it on Dimensionals.

Doesn’t it make a nice “new home” card?

New Home Card

 

For the background, I began with a Soft Succulent card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. This was layered with a new designer paper from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog, Gingham Cottage, trimmed to fit the size of the trellis. It’s a huge pack of paper, 48 sheets, in a variety of colors. The trellis was cut from Mint Macaron Cardstock with an Organic Beauty Die, which is available now.

While I was gluing things together, I added a bow of Soft Sea Foam Ribbon, also in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.

 

“Wishing you everything wonderful” is from the Charming Sentiments Stamp Set. I stamped it in Soft Succulent Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, and used its Sentiment Silhouettes Die for cutting. I chose this as something nice to say to someone moving to a new home.

 

I was inspired by TGIF.

Hues Of Happiness Paper Clip Card

I have to say, this is the first time I’ve used paper clips on a card. But TGIF’s challenge this week was to use paper clips, so I was game. It turns out, my husband really likes this card, so this is his Father’s Day card. The sentiment is perfect, don’t you think?

Paper Clipped Flowers

 

 

 

I happened to find some large, colored, paper clips that I would be able to clip onto the Hues Of Happiness Flowers. After using the Blossoming Happiness Die to cut three flowers, I clipped the flowers to a coordinating piece of Hues Of Happiness Designer Paper, 4″ X 51/4″.

Before attaching the designer paper to my card base, I cut 1″ from the bottom, and set aside for the sentiment. Next, I used Dimensionals to attach the clipped flowers portion, and glued the remaining DSP to the card base. The card base is Thick Basic White Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

Because the card was making me laugh, I searched for a sentiment that would fit the occasion, and found it in the Forever Fern Stamp Set. I stamped “love & laughter forever after,” in Memento Black Ink on the designer paper, and attached it with strips of Dimensionals (the left-over border).

To add a bit more color, I used two Blossoming Happiness Dies to cut green leaves from the designer paper, and glued them in place.

#simplestamping Sneak Peek of Wonderful World

Are you ready for another sneak peek? The Wonderful World Stamp Set has the coolest flowers, and guess what……it’s FREE! That’s right; it’s one of the Sale-a-bration products that you can choose for FREE with a $100 order during July and August. And, it comes with gorgeous designer paper that everyone is sure to want.

 

For today’s card, I simply stamped the flowers in Shaded Spruce Ink on Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″.

Prior to stamping the flowers, I created the background with a Watercolor Shapes Stamp, and two colors of Ink. The top rectangle is Pool Party, and the bottom rectangle is Soft Sea Foam.

#simplestamping Wonderful World

 

“Hello there” is from the Nature’s Prints Stamp Set, also stamped in Shaded Spruce Ink. After stamping, I glued the layer to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, and my #simplestamping card was complete.

The Stamparatus was used for stamping, and I believe it is one of the most helpful tools. Not only does it give you the capability of stamping multiple times in the same spot, it enables you to position things before stamping. Click on its picture in my Product List for more details.

Paper Piecing Technique with a Sunflower

“Paper piecing” is a fun technique I used to create today’s sunflower card. First, I’ll explain the background; a card base of Crumb Cake, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.  To give it texture, I layered it with lattice, cut with an Organic Beauty Die from Crumb Cake Cardstock.

By Su Mohr for TGIF; Click aromasandart.com to go to my website for details! Featuring: Sunflowers Dies, Organic Beauty Dies, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Take Your Pick Tool; #sunflowers #flowersoncards #heatembossing #paperpieceing #cardtechniques #organicbeautydies #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #Stampinup #stamping #cardchallenges #colorcombos #sumohr #aromasandart.com

“Paper Pieced” Sunflower

 

The sky was made with a Blending Brush and Pacific Point Ink on Basic White Cardstock, 3″ X 4 1/2″.

Now for the “paper piecing” process: 1) Cut half of a sunflower from Thick Basic White Cardstock, using the Sunflowers Die, and glue it close to the edge of the sky.  2) Create the yellow with a Blending Brush and Crushed Curry Ink on Basic White Cardstock. 3) Cut half of a sunflower, using the same half as the white cut. When removing it from the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, keep it intact. This will keep the petals in order. 4) Using your Take Your Pick Tool, match the yellow petals to the white frame, and glue in place. 5) Cut the center of the flower from Crumb Cake Cardstock. 

To give the sunflower a perfectly straight edge, I used a Stitched Rectangles Die (2 1/2″ X 4″), cutting it to size.

 

 

“I’m thinking of you” is from the Art Gallery Stamp Set, heat embossed with White Powder on a piece of the “sky” paper, cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die.

The sprig, also a Sunflowers Die, was cut from Basic White Cardstock, and glued in placed prior to attaching the sentiment with Dimensionals.

If you like doing jig saw puzzles, this technique is one you could grow to love. I’ve already made another, I’ll show you later this week.

 

I was inspired by TGIF.

Pretty Birds in a Deckled Frame

For the last day in May, I’m sharing a card using the Deckled Rectangles Dies to make a frame.

Pretty Birds in a frame

 

The card base is Thick Basic White Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. The largest frame was cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die and the third largest, from Hues Of Happiness Designer Paper.

The smaller frame was cut with the second largest Deckled Rectangles Die, and the sixth largest, from Perfectly Penciled Designer Paper. After cutting, I glued them evenly on the backside, and attached Foam Adhesive Strips to raise the frame.

 

Next, I stamped the birds, from the Pretty Birds Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I matched the stamp for “two-step” stamping, and stamped them in Parakeet Party Ink. They were easily cut with their Birdhouse Die, and placed on double Dimensionals, so they would be equal height to the frame.

 

The background for the birds was made with the “center” from largest frame. Before gluing it to the middle of the card base, I stamped the sentiment in Stazon Black Ink. I found “from all of us” in the Party Puffins Stamp Set. I guess this is something birds like to say!

Finally, I peeled the backing from the Foam Adhesive Strips, attached the frame, and then the birds. I also HAD to add three Classic Matte Dots.

 

I was inspired by TGIF.

Awash In Beauty Suite with a Frame

The new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog has gorgeous flowers, and, yes, some are pink, like the one on our cover! Today’s card is featuring my favorite suite, Awash In Beauty. 

I love the watercolored look of the images in the suite, and this flower, leaves and stem, were cut from the Awash In Beauty Designer Paper, using Organic Beauty Dies. How easy is that!

Framed Pink Rose

 

I decided to frame my flower with fabulous, Awash In Beauty Designer Paper, using the largest and fourth largest Stitched Rectangles Die. To make it sturdy, I used the largest and third largest Stitched Rectangles Dies for backing, cut from Thick Basic White Cardstock. 

 

Next, I added a trellis, cut with an Organic Beauty Die, from Vellum Cardstock. Once the trellis was glued to the frame, I attached the frame to the Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, with Foam Adhesive Strips.

 

The sentiment, “you are a true friend,”  is from the True Beauty Stamp Set. I stamped it in Memento Black Ink, used a Harvest Die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals.

Three of the beautiful Iridescent Pearls were added, which are also part of the suite, along with a sprig cut from Vellum.

 

I was inspired by TGIF.
