Ornate Garden Paper Pieced Rain Boots

The rain boots from Under My Umbrella were begging for a pattern, or two, or five. After experimenting a bit, I knew that the paper piecing technique could work perfectly.

Patterned Rain Boots

 

First, I stamped the boots in Memento Black Ink on a strip of Whisper White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 1 1/2″. 

TIP: I used the Stamparatus, leaving the boot stamp on the lid, moving the lid down on the hinges, which gives a straight line with perfect spacing. Also, I trimmed the cardstock to 1 1/2″ after stamping, leaving it wider to accommodate the magnet needed to hold it in place.

Once I had my strip of stamped rain boots, I stamped them again on each of the five patterns of Ornate Garden Designer Paper. Then, using my Paper Snips, I cut along the black lines of the rain boots. This is called paper piecing, and it was so much fun gluing the patterned paper to the white boots! Don’t you love the Ornate Garden DSP?

 

After completing my rain boots, I backed them with a 1/16th” border of Daffodil Delight Cardstock. The background is a Thick Whisper White card base, embossed with the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder.

The sentiment is from two stamps sets, stamped in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die.

 

“From all of us” is from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set, and “Happy Birthday” is from the Well Said Stamp Set. The font is wonderful; I wish my handwriting was like that!

I just had to add three Daffodil Delight Enamel Dots, even though they are retired. If you are a customer, contact me, and I’ll send you some.

 

I am playing along with the Paper Players Tic Tac Toe challenge: patterned paper-birthday-flowers.

 

The Ornate Garden items are from Stampin’ Up’s 2020-2021 “early release” suite, which are available as of April 1.

Beautiful Vellum Feathers

Feathers have universal appeal, and Stampin’ Up! seems to always have some for us to use on our projects.

Vellum Feathers

 

Today’s feathers were made with So Very Vellum, a FREE Sale-A-Bration item with a qualifying order of $50.00. I cut the feathers, using a Nature’s Thoughts Die, from the three, soft colors, backed them with Whisper White Cardstock, and placed them on Dimensionals.

TIP: Tiny dots of liquid glue behind the vellum dots prevents the glue from showing.

The two, vertical strips, were also made with a Nature’s Thoughts Die, and Whisper White Cardstock.

 

Wow! the Nature’s Thoughts Die Set has it all, because it also has the die I used for the white rectangle. I love the dainty border, don’t you? You can see the complete set in my Product List below.

 

Before gluing the white rectangle to the Purple Posy card base, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black Ink. “Collect beautiful moments” is from the Beautiful Moments Stamp Set.

A few Iridescent Sequins completed my card.

 

The Paper Player’s sketch was my inspiration.

Poppy thanks

 

Remember when I used a die to cut the flower for yesterday’s card, and I saved the “frame”?

 

Now you can see how I used it. This time, for the centers, I used a different die with Black Foil Paper. I call this paper “patent leather,” because it shines just like it.

 

The leaves and sentiment were cut from Black Foil mPaper also. The leaves are another, fabulous die from the Poppy Moments Die Set, and “thanks” is from the Well Written Die Set.

 

Can you see why I named them “twin” cards?

 

In case you missed yesterday’s card, here it is:

Free As A Bird Wishes

This sweet bird from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set is “wishing you sunshine & happiness.”

Featuring: Free As A Bird Stamp Set, Stitched Shapes Dies, Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, Honey Bee Stamp Set, Layered Leaves embossing; #freeasabird #birdsoncards #honeybee #crinkledseambindingribbon #frienshipcards #colorcombos #cardchallenges #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking

Calypso Coral Bow

 

I stamped the bird in Bermuda Bay Ink on a “splotch” made with Coastal Cabana Ink and a stamp from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set. What an easy way to color!

Next, I used the largest, Stitched ShapesCircle Die for cutting. I layered the circle with Cardstock for dimension, rather than using Dimensionals.

 

The background is Whisper White Cardstock, embossed with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder, glued to a Thick Whisper White card base.

Prior to embossing, I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink. I love how it’s curved, and I was able to shape it on the Acrylic Block to fit the shape of the circle.

 

How do you like the bow? It began as “white” Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, which I turned into Calypso Coral ribbon by MAGIC. Truthfully, I used a Sponge Dauber and Calypso Coral Ink, and pulled the ribbon through it. I let it dry for a bit, tied a double bow, and attached it with Liquid Glue. You can check out this ribbon, and all my supplies, in my Product List below.

A few Iridescent Sequins were the final touch.

 

My colors are from Paper Players.

I’m also playing along with Global Design Project.

Bird of Paradise

The Bird of Paradise from Tropical Oasis Designer Paper takes center stage on today’s card.

Featuring: Tropical Oasis Designer paper, Perennial Essence DSP, In the Tropics Dies, Tropical Dies, Stitched Rectangle Dies; #aloha #tropicalcards #birdofparadise #inthetropics #tropicaloasis #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #cardsketches #cardchallenges #2020minicatalog #2020stampinup #stampinupcards

Bird of Paradise

 

I first cut three sections of designer paper; the top and bottom from Tropical Oasis DSP, and the middle from Perennial Essence DSP. After gluing these sections to Pretty Peacock Cardstock (4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″), I used the largest Stitched Rectangle Die for cutting.

TIP: The papers you are cutting need to be larger than the die. 

Next, I cut the Bird of Paradise paper with a smaller Stitched Rectangle Die, making the DSP shorter with the help of the larger die, to fit the shape I wanted. Then, I backed it for thickness, and added Dimensionals.

 

Before adhering the Bird of Paradise, I used a Tropical Die to cut three palm fronds in three colors of Cardstock: Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, and Granny Apple Green.

 

“Aloha” was cut with an In the Tropics Die from Noble Peacock Foil. Isn’t the shine pretty?

 

My layout is from the Paper Player’s sketch.

The Special Mouse Named “Eeek”

I’d like for you to meet “Eeek.” He told me that when people see him, they get real excited and yell “Eeek,” so that’s how he got his name. He’s quite happy about it.

“Eeek” the mouse

 

This is a very clean and simple card, because Eeek wanted you to be able to see him. He’s from the Special Someone Stamp Set, stamped in Gray Granite and Sahara Sand Inks, and cut with his Special Day die.

 

His beautiful daisy is from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set, and Eeek is proud to be sharing it with you. The stem is stamped in Old Olive Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, with a border cut by a Stitched So Sweetly Die. The daisy petals were stamped in Daffodil Delight Ink, cut with the Medium Daisy Punch, and attached with Mini-Dimensionals.

 

We thought “a little hello,” from Itty Bitty Greetings, was an appropriate sentiment, and perfect for his size.

 

Eeek wants to share his card at the Paper Players Gallery.
