Quiet Meadow in Sepia

Quiet Meadow is one of my favorite bundles from Stampin’ Up’s, new, 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. I thought the images would be beautiful in sepia. But, what is sepia? This is what Siri tells us: it’s “a reddish-brown color associated particularly with monochrome photographs of the 19th and early 20th centuries.”

Meadow In Sepia

 

To achieve the sepia look, I began with a Thick Very Vanilla card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. I layered this with very Vanilla Cardstock that I stamped in Soft Suede Ink, using two stamps from the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set; the barely legible words, and random dots.

Before gluing the layer to the card base, I gave it texture with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

 

Next, I stamped the flowers in Soft Suede Ink on a 2″ strip of Very Vanilla Cardstock, and used the Banner Triple Punch for the bottom. After brushing the edge with Soft Suede Ink on a Sponge Dauber, I attached the banner with Dimensionals. I used long, left-over strips of Dimensionals, so it would be well supported.

My meadow needed butterflies, and there are two in the Meadow Die Set, which you have seen in the first photo. They received the Sponge Dauber treatment, and I added them to the scene.

 

The word, “love'” is from the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set, and fits perfectly in its Meadow die-cut. I tied Linen Thread through the hole, and attached it with a Dimensional.

 

 

I was inspired by Freshly made Sketches.

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.

Artistically Inked Bundle

I’ve been looking forward to playing with the Artistically Inked Bundle, and today is the day. The fact that it’s on the cover of the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is an indication that it was expected to be a winner. There is a digital copy of the catalog, under my profile picture, that you can download to your computer. 

 

I was excited to get started, and used an Artistic Die to cut the leaves from Thick Basic White Cardstock. Then, I stamped an Artistically Inked flower in Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight Inks on Basic White Cardstock, and used its Artistic Die for cutting. 

Don’t you love the watercolored look? And, it’s so easy!

By Su Mohr for TGIF; Click aromasandart to go to my web site for details! Featuring Artistically Inked Stamp Set, Artistic Dies, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Meadow Moments Embossing Folders; #artisticallyinked #artisticdies #meadowmoments #stitchedrectangles #thankyoucards #watercoloredflowers #flowers #flowersoncards #thankyoucards #sumohr #aromasandart #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting

Artistically Inked

 

The background for my flowers and leaves was easy also. I began with a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I used three Stitched Rectangles Dies, so measuring wasn’t required. I used the largest one to cut from black & white, True Love Designer Paper, the second largest to cut from Magenta Madness Cardstock, and the third largest to cut from Basic White Cardstock.

 

Next, I stamped “thanks,” from the Artistically Inked Stamp Set, in Stazon Black Ink.

 

Prior to glueing the layers together, I used a Meadow Moments Embossing Folder on the white layer to add some texture. The narrow size of this embossing folder fits the third largest, Stitched Rectangle, perfectly.

Finally, I attached the leaves and flowers with a bit of glue and a few Dimensionals. The leaves on the ends were glued, but the middle leaves were left free to lift around the flowers.

If you’re wondering, the paper I used for photographing is one of the gorgeous designs of Expressions In Ink Designer Paper.

 

I was inspired by the colors at TGIF.

2021-2023 In Colors for the Pals Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “2021-2023 New In-Colors.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. Then, at the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin’ Up’s! catalogs are always exciting, and we anticipate the new, annual, In Color Collection, with bated breath! This year’s five new colors did not disappoint. I chose three of them for today’s project: Fresh Freesia, Soft Succulent, and Evening Evergreen. The supplies I used for today’s card are in my Product List below.

In Color Flower

 

First, I began with a Soft Succulent card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. This was layered with a gingham print in Soft Succulent from Pansy Petals Designer Paper, cut with the largest, Scalloped Contours Die. I might as well say right now, that I will be using these dies on many of my cards. You can see all 8 dies in my Product List below.

Second, I used the third largest Scalloped Contours Die to cut Basic White Cardstock. I love this sentiment from the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set, which I stamped in Evening Evergreen Ink. 

 

Third, I stamped the flower from the Color and Contour Stamp Set in Fresh Freesia Ink on basic White Cardstock, and cut with a Scalloped Contours Die.

The stem  was cut with a Meadow Die from Evening Evergreen Cardstock, which I took the liberty to snip a bit. The dies are pictured in the first photo.

 

After gluing the flower and stem to the top layer, which I attached with Dimensionals, it was time for embellishments. I added the Loose Flower Flourishes with a pin dot of glue, and one of the Bumblebee Trinkets with a Glue Dot. Aren’t they fabulous? The bees are like gold jewelry, and the flowers come in three In Colors, in two sizes. You can check them out in my Product List.

 

You might be wondering how the new In Colors compare with similar Stampin Up! colors, and thanks to Debbie Henderson, we have some great charts:

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!

Party Puffins for GDP 291

The Party Puffins, from the new, 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, were designed to say “Happy Birthday.” Here they are in their natural habitat of coastal cliffs by the sea. The smaller one looks like a baby to me, and he’s called a puffling. Aren’t they cute?

I stamped the Puffins in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and cut them free. They were a cinch to color; only requiring a bit of Stampin’ Blends on their beaks and feet in three colors: Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Daffodil Delight.

By Su Mohr for GDP 291; Click aromasandart to go to my web site for details; Featuring: Party Puffins, Majestic Mountain Dies, In Good Taste paper, Sand & Sea paper; #partypuffins #birthdaycards #puffins #puffinsoncards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #aromasandart #sumohr #gdp291

Party Puffins

To create their habitat, I began with a Smoky Slate card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.  Then, I cut a layer of sea from Sand & Sea Designer Paper, 4″ X 5″.

Next, I created the coastal cliffs, using a Majestic Mountain Die, and In Good Taste Designer Paper. I glued two sections flat, and placed one on Dimensionals, trimming the sides to fit the 4″ layer of sea.

 

Last, I stamped “Happy Birthday,” from the Party Puffins Stamp Set, in Seaside Spray Ink in the sea.

Back On Your Feet Giraffe

Sometimes, when going through challenges in life, a humorous card is helpful. The Back On Your Feet Stamp Set has great images and sentiments for these occasions.

By Su Mohr for Fusion; Click aromasandart to go to my web site for details! Featuring: Back On Your Feet Stamp Set, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Scalloped Contours Dies, Snail Dies, Stampin' Blends; #getwellcards #sympathycards, #humorouscards #giraffes #giraffesoncards #backonyourfeet #scallopedcontoursdies #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart

“This is knot good”

 

I stamped the cute giraffe, with his knotted neck, in Espresso Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I colored the giraffe with Stampin’ Blends in two colors, Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight. I used a Rectangles Stitched Die for cutting; the one that measures 2 1/4″ X 3 1/2″.

Next, I used the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die to cut the background, wood pattern, from Neutrals 6″X6″ Designer Paper. 

 

The next step was when an exciting discovery happened; exciting to me anyway. I discovered that the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die fits perfectly within the largest Scalloped Contours Die! I love this new die set that’s available May 4th! The item number is #155560.

After gluing the layers together, I glued this to the Crumb Cake card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

The sentiment makes the card complete, stamped in Early Espresso Ink on Basic White Cardstock. I used a Snail Die for cutting the bubble, because the giraffe wanted to make sure you knew he was speaking.

 

I was inspired by Fusion.
