Polar Bears

 

A second, Christmas Classics Die was used to cut Beary Christmas DSP in a Paw Print. Don’t You love the beautiful edge surrounding the square?

The background is also Beary Christmas Designer Paper, 5 1/4″ X 4″, glued to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

Prior to gluing, I stamped “joy” in VersaMark, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and set it with the Heat Tool.

“Joy” is from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set, perfect for the space, and the emotion the bears were feeling.

For a little sparkle, I added three Tinsel Gems.

Fluffiest Friends and Garden Meadow

Today’s card began with Tweet from the Fluffiest Friends Stamp Set. After stamping her in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, I used her Fluffiest Friends Die for cutting. Then, Tweet asked to be colored with Boho Blue Stampin’ Blends, and Pecan Pie for her beak.

Tweet

 

Tweet wanted to be surrounded with beautiful Moody Mauve branches, and chose one from the Nature’s Prints Stamp Set. She has been flying around the new online exclusives, and and discovered a wonderful arch in Garden Meadows, so I used that to cut the Basic White Cardstock.

For the background, Tweet wanted a Pecan Pie, wood pattern, from Meandering Meadows Designer Paper. She said I could make it look even better by embossing it with the Timber Embossing Folder. And, she chose a  Boho Blue card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, to match her feathers.

 

Tweet loves sending birthday cards, and found the perfect “happy birthday!” in the Garden Meadows Stamp Set. I stamped it in Pecan Pie Ink, and used a Sending Die for cutting. Tweet was very happy to perch on the greeting, but she had one, last request. She asked for three, beautiful, Iridescent Rhinestones to make it sparkle. 

 

I was inspired by TGIF.

Leaf Fall Thank You Card

Happy Falloween! My Halloween cards have been mailed, so today you get pretty Fall leaves. 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, cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die.

By Su Mohr for TGIF; Click aromasandart.com to go to my website for details! Featuring: Leaf Fall Embossing Folder, Deckled Rectangles Dies, Chic Dies, Aspen Trees Dies, Masterfully Made DSP, Inked & Tiled Stamp Set; #leaffall #masterfullymade #aspentrees #fallleaves #leavesoncards #cardthemes #chicdies #thankyoucards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stamping #stampinup #sumohr

“Falloween”

 

Prior to attaching the layer with Dimensionals, I embossed it with the Leaf Fall Embossing Folder. 

 

Next, the leaves were cut with one die (solid) from the Aspen Trees Die Set, and three dies (open) from the Chic Die Set. I used red and golden portions of Masterfully Made Designer Paper to give the leaves a variety of color and texture. Then, I glued the “open” leaves along the diagonal line, created with the embossing folder, and attached the “solid” leaves with Dimensionals.

“Thank you” is from the Inked & Tiled Stamp Set, stamped in Pecan Pie Ink.

 

The final step was attaching the layer to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, with Dimensionals.

I was inspired by TGIF.

Bird’s Eye View with Labels Aglow

Before I show you today’s card, I want you to see my inspiration. Isn’t it interesting?

 

I created an owl with the Bird’s Eye View Stamp Set, stamping him in Night Of Navy Ink on Winter Meadow Designer Paper. Don’t you think the glasses make him look wise? I also stamped the books, used Paper Snips for fussy cutting, and added a little color with a Boho Blue Stampin’ Blend.

“WOO-HOO!”

 

The background was created with Winter Meadow Designer Paper, 3 3/8″ X 4 7/8″, glued to Gold Foil Cardstock, 3 3/4″ X 5″, glued to a Smoky Slate card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Prior to gluing, I used Labels Aglow Dies to cut the stars at the top, and the circle by the owl.

 

“Woo-hoo!” is from the Charming Sentiments Stamp Set, stamped in VersaMark, sprinkled with Gold Embossing Powder, and set with a Heat Tool. 

After gluing the owl, books, and circle together, I attached them with Dimensionals, and my card was complete.

Joy of Christmas

Today’s card began with snippets of Garden Green Cardstock, cut with a Christmas Pinecone Die. This die is a carry-over, available now in the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog, which you can see in my product List below. It can cover an entire card front, or be cut into smaller pieces, as shown here.

Christmas Pine Boughs

 

Next, I used a Christmas Classics Die to cut the square from Joy Of Christmas Designer Paper, layered it for thickness, glued the boughs to the back, and placed it on Dimensionals.

 

The background is Basic White Cardstock, 3 7/8″ X 3 7/8″, embossed with the Cane Weave Embossing Folder. This was glued to Joy Of Christmas DSP in a Pecan, woodgrain pattern, 4″ X 4″. Then, I glued the 4″ square to a Crumb Cake card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, embossed with the Timber Embossing Folder.

 

“Many merry thoughts and wishes” is from the Saint Nicholas Stamp Set, stamped in Mossy Meadow Ink, and cut with a Sending Die. I used a Foam Adhesive Sheet for dimension, and propped the end, under “many,” on a Mini Dimensional.

For a touch of sparkle, I added three, Flat Adhesive Backed Pearls.

 

I was inspired by TGIF.

Cheers To The Season Thanksgiving Card

SURPRISE!!! Stampin’ Up! is offering FREE SHIPPING on qualifying orders for THREE DAYS, October 9, 10, and 11!

 

Today’s card was created with the very versatile, “Distinktive” stamp set, Cheers To The Season. The “So Thankful” leaf is perfect for Thanksgiving cards, don’t you think?

“Distinktive” is a word Stampin’ Up! coined for “stamps that create different opacities in a single stamped image.”

After stamping the leaf in Cajun Craze Ink on Basic White Cardstock, I used my Paper Snips to fussy cut, and placed it on Dimensionals.

By Su Mohr for TGIF; Click aromasandart.com to go to my website for details!

So Thankful

 

Next, I used the second largest Deckled Rectangles Die to cut Basic White Cardstock. Then, I stamped Pumpkin Pie Ink, with the “swish” stamp, six times. This was followed by stamping Early Espresso Ink, with the dot stamp, three times.

After stamping, I used Dimensionals to attach the layer to a Cajun Craze card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

To complete my Thanksgiving card, I added embellishments to the stamped dots: Iridescent Rhinestones, Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins, and 2023-2025 In Color Dots.

 

I was inspired by TGIF.
