Nothing’s Better Than Ice Cream

If you looked in my freezer, it would be unusual to find fewer than two quarts of ice cream. This sentiment, from the Nothing’s Better Than Stamp Set, rings true for me. I grew up eating Carnation ice cream, followed by 31 Flavors, and now, it doesn’t matter, it’s all good!

Ice Cream

 

The first thing I did was cut “ice cream” from Melon Mambo, 6X6 Brights Designer Paper. I attached the designer paper to a 1″ strip of Foam Adhesive Sheet, placed the letters on top, and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Then, I turned the letters upside down, and ran it through a second time to make sure it was a good cut.

The Foam Adhesive Sheet is an easy way to give the small letters wonderful dimension, and it’s easy to peel the backing and stick them to the card front.

 

The background is Basic White Cardstock (5 1/4″ X 4″) on a Thick Basic White card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″). I added a piece of Basic White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 2 1/2″, that I cut from corner to corner, and embossed with the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder. 

The little flags were cut from Balmy Blue Cardstock with a Happy Die.

The sentiment was stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with Ornate Frames Dies. I get a kick out of the humorous words!

 

I was inspired by TGIF.

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.

Art Gallery Flower

 

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, 4″ X 5 1/4″, embossed with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

The middle piece is Subtles 6X6″ Designer Paper in a Blushing Bride print, cut with an Ornate Layers Die. I love the detailed edge, don’t you?

 

For the focal point, I created a layered, Art Gallery, flower. I used two stamps, stamped in Real Red Ink (one on top of the other) on Basic White Cardstock, and used its die for cutting. Then, I used two more stamps for the layered part of the flower, cut with its die, and attached the parts with Dimensionals. 

Next, I stamped the stem & leaves in Bermuda Bay Ink, used its die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals.

 

The sentiment, “thank you,” is from the Art Gallery Stamp Set, stamped in Bermuda Bay Ink, cut with a Floral Gallery Die, and attached with Dimensionals.

Butterfly Bouquet Arriving March 2, 2021

I have exciting news to share with you today: Stampin’ Up! has a fabulous bundle from the new 2021 Annual Catalog (available May 4th) that you can order March 2nd! Today’s card is my first sample using Butterfly Bouquet, but my head is swimming, or flying, with ideas. 

By Su Mohr; Click aromasandart to go to my web site for details! Featuring: Butterfly Brilliance, Butterfly Bijou, Brilliant Wings Dies, Springtime Joy Stamp Set, Potted Succulents Dies: #eastercards #butterfliesoncards #butterflybrilliance, #pottedsucculents #springtimejoy #brilliantwings #butterfliesoncards #earlyrelease #stampinup #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart

Brilliant Wings

 

I began by experimenting with the Brilliant Wings Dies. There were so many, it was hard to decide. Look at the possibilities!

 

On top of that, the dies can be used to crop the six butterflies from the Butterfly Bijou Designer Paper.

Plus, you can stamp the butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set in any color, and then use the one-piece die for cutting. I used Memento Black Ink for this first try, and will color them with Stampin’ Blends. Are you beginning to see the many possibilities?

 

For todays card, I used one of the individual dies, along with the one-piece die, to cut from the Butterfly Bijou Designer Paper. By cutting a square of designer paper, to accommodate the butterfly, I was able to use the one-piece die as an individual die. I used the one in the lower left-hand corner in the pictures above.

I glued the butterflies together, just on the body, molding the wings with my fingers, so they could fly.

 

For their background, I used the large Potted Succulents Die to cut from Thick Basic White Cardstock, trimming the top for an interesting border. This was attached with teeny, tiny pin dots of Liquid Glue, to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

The sentiment, “May the new life of Spring bring you joy” is from the Springtime Joy Stamp Set. It was stamped in Stazon Black Ink, and cut with a potted Succulents Die.

I attached the sentiment and butterflies with Dimensionals, added three Whale Of A Time Sequins, and my first card with this new, exciting set was complete.

 

Do you love it? I must tell you, the Butterfly Bijou Designer Paper, and paper I used for photography, Natural Touch, is only available until May 31, or while supplies last. So, order early to avoid being disappointed.

“Hey there”

 

I began today’s card by stamping the donkey in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and cutting him from the paper along the lines. I used Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends for coloring the donkey, and a Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend for the flower. 

The donkey is standing in Basic White Cardstock cut with the largest Layering Circles Die, The Garden Green Cardstock vine was cut with a Birds & More Die, and a second cut with the Largest Layering Circles Die, made it fit the white circle perfectly.

 

For the background, I used the largest Ornate Layers Die to cut Regals 6″X6″ Designer Paper in dotted, Garden Green. This was layered on a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

“Hey there, friend,” is from the Darling Donkeys Stamp Set, stamped in Garden Green Ink, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die.

After elevating the circle, the donkey, and the sentiment, on Dimensionals, my card was complete.

Little Chick

 

I began by stamping the cute, little, chick in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I cut him from the paper, and colored him with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends, and Pumpkin Pie for his beak.

 

I love the new Stitched With Whimsy Dies, and thought it would make a good frame for my chick. By using a Layering Squares Die (2 1/4″ X 2 1/4″) to cut the Basic White Cardstock, I didn’t even have to measure.

After cutting, I used Pool Party Ink with a Blending Brush to add a little color.

 

The band across the middle was made with 6X6 Subtles Designer Paper in a Pool Party dot, cut with an Ornate Layers Die, and again, no measuring. I backed it with black & white True Love Designer Paper to give it a 1/16″ border at the top and bottom.

The background is Fine Art Floral Designer Paper in a Pool Party, brushstroke pattern, 4″ X 5 1/4″. Before gluing it to the Pool Party card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, I stamped the sentiment. 

 

“Wishing you the blessings of…” is from the Gift Of Hope Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink.

To complete the sentiment, I used a Word Wishes Die to cut the word “Easter” from Pool Party Cardstock. I doubled it for thickness, and glued it to the card front.

The card was complete, after adding a few Woven Threads Sequins to the chick’s square.

 

 

I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.
