Seahorse on a Square Card

Okay, more Rainbow Glimmer Paper is on my next order! Isn’t the seahorse pretty in sparkling shades of blue and green? 

I began today’s card with a square design in mind, so cut the card base from Bermuda Bay Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 4 1/4″, folded at 4 1/4″.  Then, I used a Sea Life Die to cut the seahorse from Rainbow Glimmer Paper. This paper worked so well with the fish a few days ago, I HAD to use it with the seahorse.

I just glued his head, belly, and tail (the largest sections), and left the rest of his sturdy self free.

Rainbow Seahorse

 

His background is Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 4″, embossed with the Seashells Embossing Folder. I think he’s happy with his setting.

 

Since the seahorse is really cool, I stamped, “you’re so cool,” in Bermuda Bay Ink on Basic White Cardstock. This sentiment is in the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set. 

It was fun using the Double Oval Punch for cutting, giving it the scalloped border of Rainbow Glimmer Paper, and attaching it with a double layer of Dimensionals. 

 

The Opal Rounds completed my underwater scene. These pretty dots of sparkle are retiring June 30, so order them while they’re available. Clicking on them in my Product List will take you to my store for purchasing.

 

I was inspired by the square card design at Fab Friday.

And, the summer theme at the Paper Players.

Seascape Stamp Set & Sea Life Dies

This fish is amazing, and caught my eye the first time I looked through the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, page 12. I thought it would be beautiful in our Rainbow Glimmer Paper, so that’s what I used for cutting with its Sea Life Die. Interestingly, the die doesn’t cut the fish completely, but it was easy to snip free. This is my first time for using it, so maybe I will find out later the reasoning for its design.

Rainbow Glimmer Fish

 

I wanted the fish to stand out against white, so I used the largest Layering Circles Die to cut a circle from Basic White Cardstock. I glued the head and body of the fish to the circle, leaving its fins free. The durability of the Rainbow Glimmer Paper made this a great choice for the fish.

 

Next, I added water with a piece of Sand & Sea Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″, and cut a hole in it, using the largest Layering Circles Die. Then, I glued this to a Night Of Navy card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″), and glued the white circle inside the hole.

Prior to gluing, I stamped the bubbles and “thank you” in Night of Navy Ink; both from the Seascape Stamp Set.

 

Finally, I added the coral, created by using a Sea Life Die to cut from a red section of Sand & Sea Designer Paper.

 

Tic Tac Toe challenges are fun, and I chose the middle row down; circle, red, DSP. The diagonal row down would also work; blue, red, white. 

 

Let’s see what’s in store for June.

Art Gallery Painted Texture

The Art Gallery Stamp Set is fun to use with its coordinating Floral Gallery Dies and Painted Texture Embossing Folder. We first saw this set in the last mini catalog, and I’m happy to say it’s carrying over to the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

By Su Mohr for PP; Click aromasandart to go to my web site; Featuring: Art Gallery Stamp Set, Floral Gallery Dies, Painted Texture embossing, Bumblebee Gingham Trim, Sand & Sea Designer Paper; #artgallery #floralgallery #paintedtexture #ginghamribbon #sand&sea #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart #stampinup #cardsketches #cardchallenges #flowersoncards #thankyoucards

Painted Texture Floral

 

I began this project with the flowers, using the “ink to stamp” technique on the Stamparatus.

First, I placed Basic White Cardstock on the platform of the Stamparatus with the floral stamp on top.

Second, I lowered the lid, picking up the stamp.

Third, I colored the stamp, one section at a time, with four different colors of Stampin’ Write Markers: Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo, Mango Melody, and Mossy Meadow, and lowered the lid to stamp on the paper. Magnets hold the paper in place for repeated stamping.

The Stampin’ Write Markers are sold in color groups, not individually. You can see the Brights and Neutrals in my Product List below.

Fourth, I used its Floral Gallery Die for cutting, and placed it on Dimensionals.

 

The background was created with Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. The yellow paper at the bottom is Sand & Sea Designer Paper, 4″ X 2″. After gluing the bottom portion, I embossed it with the Painted Texture Embossing Folder.

 

Prior to gluing the layer to the So Saffron card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″), and attaching the flowers, I taped Bumblebee Gingham Trim to the back.

“Thank you” is from the Art Gallery Stamp Set, stamped in Mossy Meadow Ink, cut with a Floral Gallery Die, and attached with Dimensionals.

 

I was inspired by the Paper Players.

Easy Peasy Polka Dotted Butterfly

I had polka dots on my mind, and used a pattern of True Love Designer Paper with the largest Brilliant Wings Die to cut a butterfly.

Polka Dotted Butterfly

 

This card is so easy peasy, very little explanation is required. After cutting the butterfly, I cut the background layer from Expressions In Ink Designer Paper. This paper is amazing, all twelve sheets (12″ X 12″), front and back. I cut a 4″ X 5 1/4″ section from this pattern. You can see the entire selection by clicking on the picture in my Product List below.

 

Next, I stamped “thanks,” from the Queen Anne’s Lace Stamp Set, in Fresh Freesia Ink. I chose Fresh Freesia for a card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, glued the layer to the card base, the butterfly on top, and my clean & simple card was complete.

Party Puffins When You Want To Make Someone Happy

The cute, little, puffling, from the Party Puffins Stamp Set, is making another appearance. He was upset that he didn’t get to show off his fish, so I promised it would be on my next card.

By Su Mohr for PP; Click aromasandart to go to my web site for details! Featuring: Party Puffins Stamp Set, Scalloped Contours Dies, Neutrals 6X6 Designer Paper, Playful Pets Trim Ribbon, Painted Texture embossing; #puffins #partypuffins #puffinsoncards #birds #scallopedcontours #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stampinup #sumohr #aromasandart #happycards

Puffin Happiness

 

The first thing I did was stamp the puffling (a baby puffin), and his fish, in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock.  After cutting them free, I used Stampin’ Blends, for a small bit of coloring, in Smoky Slate and Real Red.

 

For the background, I used a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.  This was layered with Neutrals 6″X6″ Designer Paper in Basic Gray, cut with the largest, Scalloped Contours Die. This exact pattern is retired, but you can see the new patterns in my Product List below.

The top layer is Basic White Cardstock, cut with the third largest, Scalloped Contours Die. 

 

Before attaching the white layer with Dimensionals, I embossed it with the Painted Texture Embossing Folder, and tied ribbon around the top. The puffling thought I should add the ribbon to match the pretty ribbon around his fish. The two ribbons come in a combo pack, and seemed perfect for this card, so I agreed.

The sentiment is from the Party Puffin Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with the smallest Scalloped Contours Die. The puffling hopped on the label, not forgetting his fish, and I attached it with Dimensionals. I was happy that the scalloped edge of the label fit the layer beneath perfectly.

 

I was inspired by the colors at the Paper Players.

Poppy Moments Clean & Simple

The Poppy Moments Die Set is amazing, and definitely a favorite. I love how this flower fits together like a jigsaw puzzle.

First, I cut the flower from Basic White Cardstock. Then, I used the same die to cut a flower from Sand & Sea Designer Paper, and filled in the six petals with the pretty, red pattern.

Poppy in Oval

 

Before gluing the poppy together, I prepared the background. The card base is Pear Pizzazz Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. It is layered with Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″.

The oval was created with a Layering Ovals Die, which I used to cut a stencil. Then, I placed the stencil over the white layer, using Pear Pizzazz Ink for coloring. I would have used a Blending Brush to apply the ink, but I was away from my craft room, so used a paper towel and my finger. It worked surprisingly well!

Next, I cut two leaves from the Pear Pizzazz (inked with a paper towel) paper, and glued them to the sides of the oval. And, now, I put the poppy together like a jigsaw puzzle.

 

I used two more Poppy Moments Dies for the center of the flower with Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow Cardstock.

Last, I stamped “Thank you,” from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set, in Pear Pizzazz Ink, and my clean & simple card was complete. Isn’t the font great?

 

I was inspired by the Paper Players.
