Butterfly Bouquet Has Arrived!

Spring is around the corner, and butterflies will be filling the air. In fact, right now, they are flying in from Butterfly Bouquet, and can’t wait to land on your cards! You can see details of the Butterfly Brilliance Collection in my Product List below.

Today’s card has a beautiful butterfly in the colors of Poppy Parade and Magenta Madness, cut from the Butterfly Bijou Designer Paper, with a Brilliant Wings Die. I used a second Brilliant Wings Die to cut wings from Vellum, which I glued to the body. This softens the look, and adds dimension, don’t you think?

Butterfly & Lace

 

For the background, I used the large, Stitched Lace Die, which hasn’t seen action for a while. After cutting the large, lace piece from Basic White Cardstock, I used the long, skinny, edge die to trim the four sides.

 

 

Next, I layered the lace rectangle on Basic White Cardstock that was cut with the largest Stitched Rectangles Die. Prior to gluing to the Thick Basic White card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″), I added black ribbon that was in the Sending Hearts Paper Pumpkin Kit.

 

“Easter Blessings” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die. Opal Rounds finished off my second Butterfly Bouquet card. More to come! 

 

I gave lots of details about Butterfly Bouquet with my first card. Clicking the card will take you to my blog post.

Relax Like A Cat

Animals know how to relax, and we need to take a lesson from them. Right? Today’s card is clean & simple, and was finished in a jiffy, so I could go and relax! LOL

Relax!

 

The first thing I did was fussy cut the cat from the Playful Pets Designer Paper. You can see all of the cats and dogs by clicking on the picture in my Product List below.

 

Because this cat is the color of  Cinnamon Cider, I used that color to color the black & white geometric pattern of True Love Designer Paper. I achieved the mottled look by using light & dark Stampin’ Blends that come in a combo pack.

The cat’s tongue and ears are the color of Flirty Flamingo, so I used that cardstock for the largest triangle. 

The cat is attached with Dimensionals to the smallest, Basic White triangle, stamped with the sentiment.

“Relax your way,” from A Good Man Stamp Set, was stamped in Stazon Ink. Perfect, huh?

 

Prior to adhering the triangles, I used the largest Stitched With Whimsy Die to add detail to the border of the Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Quick & easy!

 

I was inspired by the Paper Players.

Springtime Joy Easter Lamb

For my first Easter card of 2021, I was excited to use a new stamp set, Springtime Joy. You can see the entire set in my Product List below.

Isn’t this lamb adorable? Some of you might be too young, but I remember the ventriloquist, Shari Lewis, and her famous puppet, Lamb Chop, so that’s what I named her.

Featuring: Springtime Joy Stamp Set, Stitched With Whimsy Dies,True Love Designer Paper,Forever Gold Laser-Cut Paper,Word Wishes Dies; #eastercards #springcards #lambs #lambsoncards #animalsoncards #stenciling #stencilingtechnique #cardtechniques #wordwishes #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart

Lamb Chop

 

Lamb Chop is very shy, but agreed to let me feature her on my card, if I did all the talking, and let her quietly appear. I stamped her in Memento Black ink on Basic White Cardstock, then fussy cut along the lines, and placed her on Dimensionals. 

Prior to attaching her to the card front, I colored her headpiece and hooves with Stampin’ Blends in four colors: Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Just Jade, and Smoky Slate.

 

For Lamb Chop’s background, I applied a stenciling technique, using a piece of Forever Gold Laser-Cut Paper as a stencil. Then, I added Flirty Flamingo Ink with a Blending Brush on top of Basic White Cardstock. After I was happy with the amount of ink, I removed the stencil, and cut the paper to 3″ X 4 1/2″. Then, I backed it with True Love Designer paper, 1/8″ larger, giving it a 1/16″, black & white border.

 

Prior to gluing my art piece to the Thick Basic White card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″) I embossed it with the largest Stitched With Whimsy Die. This is such a simple way to add a detailed border. Even Lamb Chop softly said she loved it!

Something to not overlook is the sentiment. The Word Wishes Dies, cut from Silver Foil, say “Happy Easter,” in a big way. The first picture shows off the shine.

 

I was inspired by the colors at the Paper Players challenge.

Writing In The Sand

I grew up playing in the sand on San Diego beaches. During my teenage years, I drew a heart, or two, with different initials. You know what I mean? Ocean waves serve as an eraser, but, once written those memories remain in your heart forever.

By Su Mohr for PP; Click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Friends Are Like Seashells; Seaside & Seashell Dies, Sand & Sea Designer Paper, Seashells Embossing Folder, Be Mine Stitched Dies, Well Written Dies; #friendsarelikeseashells #sand&sea #seashells #shells #beachscenes #shellsoncards #valentines #heartsoncards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stamping #stampinup #sumohr #aromasandart #cardthemes #beach

writing in the sand

 

A card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″) of Sahara Sand is a natural choice, right? And, it blends beautifully with the Sand & Sea Designer Paper. It looks so real, I felt like I needed to brush the sand off my work table. 

A Be Mine Stitched Die, in the shape of a heart, was used to “draw” my heart in the sand. Then, I used Well Written Dies to write “love you” in the sand with Crumb Cake Cardstock.

After layering the heart for thickness, I raised it on Dimensionals.

 

Seaweed was created with the large Seaside & Seashells Die and Crumb Cake Cardstock. After using the Seashells Embossing Folder on the cut cardstock, I snipped a piece, and added it to the scene.

 

The two shells and starfish are from the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, stamped in Sahara Sand Ink, Blushing Bride Ink, and Smoky Slate Ink, on Basic White Cardstock. After fussy cutting the shells along their lines, I molded them with my fingers, and attached them with Dimensionals.

The Opal Rounds are so gorgeous, I couldn’t resist adding a few, as a final touch.

 

I was inspired by the Paper Players.

Dog and Cat Valentine

There was a lot of commotion in my craft room today. The dog and cat were fighting over whose turn it was to appear on a card, and they were both mad at me, because it had been a long time for either one! I settled the argument by agreeing to use both of them on a Valentine card.

By Su Mohr; Click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, Dog Punch, Cat Punch, Be Mine Stitched Dies, Ornate Floral embossing, Fine Art Floral Designer Paper; #dogpunch #catpunch #heartsoncards #valentines #valentinecards #ornatefloral #fineartfloral #sumohr #aromasandart #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stamping #stampinup #sale-a-bration2021

Hey, friend

 

I even let them choose their fur, and they both liked the pastel shades of Fine Art Floral Designer Paper. Cat Punch preferred pink, Dog Punch chose yellow, and they sat still while I punched them out of the patterned paper.

Next, was the heart, cut with a Be Mine Stitched Die from a beautiful, pastel section of Fine Art Floral Designer Paper. We were happy with this selection, and all three, the heart, the dog, and the cat, were backed with cardstock for thickness.

 

In spite of arguing once in a while, the dog and cat really are friends, and wanted to say “hey, friend” from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set. Cat wanted me to stamp it in pink ink, and Dog wanted yellow ink, so I went with the neutral, Balmy Blue Ink. They said it brought out the blue flower in the heart, so they were appeased, as long as I used the smallest Stitched So Sweetly Die for cutting. I think it worked perfectly, don’t you?

 

For the background, they wanted Basic White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″, embossed with the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder. This was really my idea, but I let them think it was theirs. I glued this to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/4″, folded at 4 1/4″, and attached the heart with Dimensionals. Then, they jumped on top of their Dimensionals, and said, in unison, “but, what about our envelope?” I used my very, easy, way to decorate an envelope flap to complete their card:

I cut a piece of designer paper 5 3/4″ X 2 1/4″, added a thin line of Liquid Glue around the edge of the envelope flap, and attached the paper. Then, using my Paper Snips, I cut the excess, with the edge of the flap as a template.

You can see the envelope in the first picture, decorated with another pattern of Fine Art Floral Designer Paper. At the last minute, they wanted to add a Ladybug Trinket, which is this month’s host code gift, but I said, “next time.”

 

I was inspired by the Paper Players, and chose the top row across: die-cut, animal, scene.

Fine Art Sunflower

This Sunflower Dies are fabulous, and I had to try them with Fine Art Floral Designer Paper.

By Su Mohr for PP; Click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, Ornate Thanks Stamp Set, Sunflowers Dies, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder; #fineartfloral #ornatethanks #sunflowers #sunflowersoncards #flowers #flowersoncards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart #stampinup #saleabration2021

Fine Art SunFlower

 

I knew I wanted white as a background, to highlight the sunflower, so I cut a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. This was topped with a layer of Basic White Cardstock, 4 ” X 5 1/4″, embossed with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. 

Next, I used a Stitched Rectangles Die (3″ X 4 1/4″) to cut Basic White Cardstock, and layered it on Balmy Blue Cardstock, 1/8″ larger, giving it a 1/16″ border.

 

The sunflower began with the beautiful Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, cut with the “solid” Sunflowers Die. Then, I cut the “frame” from Thick Basic White Cardstock, and glued the two pieces at the center, leaving the petals free.

Prior to attaching the sunflower with Dimensionals, I used the smaller circle die in the set, to cut the center from Brushed Metallic Cardstock.

 

The sentiment, “you’re amazing,” is from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set, stamped in Balmy Blue Ink, and cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die. 

The little, stylized, bird was cut with a Well Written Die from Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, and attached with a Dimensional.

 

I was inspired by the Paper Players.
