Artistically Inked Bundle

I’ve been looking forward to playing with the Artistically Inked Bundle, and today is the day. The fact that it’s on the cover of the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is an indication that it was expected to be a winner. There is a digital copy of the catalog, under my profile picture, that you can download to your computer. 

 

I was excited to get started, and used an Artistic Die to cut the leaves from Thick Basic White Cardstock. Then, I stamped an Artistically Inked flower in Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight Inks on Basic White Cardstock, and used its Artistic Die for cutting. 

Don’t you love the watercolored look? And, it’s so easy!

Artistically Inked

 

The background for my flowers and leaves was easy also. I began with a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I used three Stitched Rectangles Dies, so measuring wasn’t required. I used the largest one to cut from black & white, True Love Designer Paper, the second largest to cut from Magenta Madness Cardstock, and the third largest to cut from Basic White Cardstock.

 

Next, I stamped “thanks,” from the Artistically Inked Stamp Set, in Stazon Black Ink.

 

Prior to glueing the layers together, I used a Meadow Moments Embossing Folder on the white layer to add some texture. The narrow size of this embossing folder fits the third largest, Stitched Rectangle, perfectly.

Finally, I attached the leaves and flowers with a bit of glue and a few Dimensionals. The leaves on the ends were glued, but the middle leaves were left free to lift around the flowers.

If you’re wondering, the paper I used for photographing is one of the gorgeous designs of Expressions In Ink Designer Paper.

 

I was inspired by the colors at TGIF.

Hey, Chick, Have a Happy Day!

Chickens say they are the best animal on the planet. If you don’t believe it, just ask them. Do cats or dogs give you eggs? No! I couldn’t argue with that, so agreed to let them be featured on an “animal” themed card.

Stamp Set, Chick Dies, Stampin' Blends; #heychick #chickdies #stampinblends #chickens #chickensoncards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart #stampinup #humorouscards #animalsoncards #cardchallenges

Hey, Chick!

 

The Hey Chick! Stamp Set has really cute chickens, which I stamped in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. This was followed by perfect cutting with their Chick Dies. Then, I used Stampin’ Blends for coloring in three colors: Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, and Poppy Parade.

 

Before attaching the Chicks with Dimensionals, I prepared their background. The card base is Crumb Cake Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″ with a layer of Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″, and a top layer of Basic White Cardstock, 3 3/4″ X 5″.

The fabulous, fence was created with a Chicks Die and Crumb Cake Cardstock.

 

I stamped the sentiments “hey, chick!” and “have a happy day!” in Memento Black Ink, and used a Chick Die for cutting the cute sign.

If you agree that chickens are the best, you’ll need to order this set before it retires. You can see all the Last Chance Products by clicking on the picture below.

The card base is Petal Pink, followed by a layer of Basic White Cardstock, cut with the largest Ornate Layers Die. The next layer is Petal Pink in a pattern of Subtles 6″X6″ Designer Paper, cut with the next largest Ornate Layers Die.

 

I used the third largest Ornate layers Die to cut the top layer from Basic White Cardstock.

Prior to cutting, I stamped the sentiment, “You are the happy to my day,” in Crumb Cake Ink. This is from a favorite, retiring, stamp set, Country Home. Clicking on “Last Chance Products” below, will take you to the list of retiring products.

 

For a little something extra, I added a bee and pearls. The bee is from the Garden Wishes Stamp Set, stamped in Crumb Cake Ink, cut with a Dandy Wishes Die, and attached with a Dimensional. The pearls are self-sticking, and easily attached. You can see all of the supplies in my product List below.

Oliver The Slimline Hot Dog

Slimline cards are very popular, so when Oliver (the extra long Hot Dog) heard that I was making one, he begged to be featured.

By Su Mohr for TGIF; Hot Dog Stamp Set, Forever Greenery designer paper, Ornate Frames Dies, Dog Punch; #hotdogstampset #hotdogs #weinerdogs #doxies #slimlinecards #dogpunch #dogsoncards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #humorouscards #sumohr #aromasandart

Oliver

 

He said it would be very easy, because he was already the color of Crumb Cake Cardstock, and I just needed to stamp him in Early Espresso Ink. After cutting, I added a little more color with a Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend. 

 

Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Hot Dog Stamp Set, “I love you that’s the long and short of it,” in Early Espresso Ink. I used an Ornate Frames Die for cutting the label, which was perfect for extending Oliver’s body.

This is when I performed major surgery, by cutting Oliver in half, but he said it didn’t hurt. I glued Oliver’s front and back to the label, and placed him on Dimensionals. He was still smiling!

 

Oliver wanted to walk through a field of pansies , which he saw in the new 2021 Annual Catalog, but I said it was too soon to use the Pansy Petals Designer Paper, so he chose Forever Greenery.

Oliver’s card base is Garden Green Cardstock, 8″ X 7″, folded at 3 1/2″. The Pear Pizzazz layer is 7 1/2″ X 3″, and the Forever Greenery paper is 1/8″ smaller. It will fit into a regular, legal sized, envelope.

We were almost finished, but needed a touch of color, so Oliver said he wanted Real Red hearts. He said his friend, Dog Punch, wouldn’t mind if we borrowed some from him, especially since Dog Punch was retiring, and wouldn’t want to be forgotten. It’s hard to believe he was once valued at $18.00, and is now only $10.80. Such a shame! I think he’d love some new owners who would appreciate him.

 

I was inspired by TGIF.

Stenciling Out Of The Ordinary

Here I go with another stenciled card design, because the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Paper makes it so much fun!

First, I held the stencil on top of Basic White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″, and used a Blending Brush to apply Pool Party Ink. I tapped the brush around the edge to not disturb the stencil, with a very light touch in the center. Don’t worry if the stencil moves a little bit, because you can reposition it.

Extraordinary You

 

Once I was happy with the amount of ink applied, I used the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting. This die was just the right size to make a nice border.

Next, I stamped the sentiment, from the Simply Succulents Stamp Set, in Pool Party Ink. See why I wanted it lighter in the middle? I used the Stamparatus to make sure the sentiment was dark enough. It’s a good thing, because I ended up stamping it three times.

 

Before gluing my stenciled piece to the Thick Basic White card base, I embossed the front of the card base with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder for some texture.

 

To bring in some color, I found a Special Days flower die to cut small flowers from Flirty Flamingo and Blushing Bride Cardstock. I also added three Opal Rounds for interest.

 

I was inspired by the colors at TGIF.

How To Stamp Your Own DSP

Today’s challenge was to stamp my own DSP (Designer Series Paper). If you haven’t tried it, you should, because it’s really fun! I chose to stamp a sheet of cocktails from the Nothing’s Better Than Stamp Set. 

First, I stamped the cocktail glass in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, 5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″, in three, alternating rows. Then, I had the fun of coloring. The stamp set comes with a stamp that fills the glass, and even has ice cubes.

I used four colors: Bermuda Bay, Mango Melody, Flirty Flamingo, and Magenta Madness. To make the drinks a lighter shade, I used the “stamped off” technique. This means, I inked the stamp, stamped on scratch paper, and stamped my project without re-inking.

 

Next, I used the same four colors in Stampin’ Blends to finish coloring the citrus and umbrellas. I love how Stampin’ Up! coordinates everything!

By Su Mohr for TGIF; Click aromasandart to go to my web site for details! Featuring: Nothing's better Than Stamp Set, Love You More Than Dies, Stitched Rectangles Dies; #nothingsbetterthan #loveyoumorethan #cocktails #humorouscards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart #designyourowndsp #stampinup

Cocktails Kind of Day

 

After coloring the cocktails I used the second largest, Stitched Rectangles Die, to cut it down to size. This way, I wasn’t tempted to show complete images, instead of partial images, as “real” designer paper would be when cut. 

Next, I layered it on Bermuda Bay Cardstock, cut with the largest, Stitched Rectangles Die, and layered both on a Coastal Cabana card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

“Cocktails” is one of the Love You More Than Dies, cut from Basic Black Cardstock, and layered on the same word cut from Bermuda Bay Cardstock. It gives the word thickness, as well as a subtle bit of color.

To complete the sentiment, I stamped “today is a” and “kind of day” in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Hint: I placed the phrases side by side on the acrylic block when stamping, so they would be easy to cut the same size.

 

I was inspired by TGIF.
