Stamping Sunday Blog Hop “Last Dance”

 

For today’s Stamping Sunday Blog Hop I’m sharing three cards, using the retiring, Flowering Blooms Stamp Set, Flowering Dies, Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, and Layering Ovals Dies. If you click on the pictures in my Product List below, you will see the prices. The Flowering Dies have been reduced to $7.75. What a savings!

I also wanted to show how the Flowering Blooms Stamp Set can be enjoyed by three types of stampers: beginner, casual and avid.

Beginner, Avid, Casual

 

The “beginner’s” card, on the left, is #simplestamping; just stamps, ink, and paper. A beginner will be delighted with the Flower Blooms Stamp Set, because the images are crisp and detailed, without requiring the Stamparatus. This set has the “WOW” factor!

The card base is Mint Macaron Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, layered with Mint Macaron in a print, 4 ” X 5 1/4″. 

The top layer is Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, 3 1/2″ X 4 3/4″, that I stamped with flowers and “thank you,” from the Flower Blooms Stamp Set, in Stazon ink. See what I mean about the detailed images?

 

 

The second card (on the right in the first picture) is for a casual stamper, taking more time and products. This time, I began with a Coastal Cabana card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″) topped with a layer of Basic White Cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″).

The top layer is Fine Art Floral Designer Paper (3 3/4″ X 5 1/4″) with the right side given a fancy edge by cutting with a Flowering Die. You are able to extend the length by moving the die down, and cutting a second time. After carefully adding pin dots of glue, I attached the two pieces to the white layer.

Next, I stamped the gorgeous flower in Stazon Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, used its die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals.

I used the same sentiment, but gave “thank you” special treatment on this second card. I stamped it in Stazon Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and used the smallest, Layering Ovals Die for cutting. Then, I cut Coastal Cabana Cardstock with the scalloped oval in the next size, glued the two together, and attached it with Dimensionals.

 

The third card, in the middle, began with a Coastal Cabana card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.  

The So Saffron paper is a pattern of Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″, which I glued to So Saffron Cardstock for thickness, before cutting the hole in the middle. I used the largest Layering Ovals Die for cutting, then applied Foam Adhesive Strips to the back to raise the frame.

Next, I used a Flowering Die with Stazon Black Ink to stamp branches on Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, 3 1/2″ X 4 3/4″. Then, I attached this to the Foam Adhesive Strips before gluing the entire raised frame to the card front.

The flower was created with the Flowering Dies you see in the picture, and the sentiment was created the same way as the second card.

This card has additional detail, created with extra tools and product, that an avid crafter would enjoy.

 

For more inspiration, the Stamping Sunday designers are excited to share retiring products with you. Next up is Jay Soriano, and previously, Cheryll Miller.

Product List

Oliver The Slimline Hot Dog

Slimline cards are very popular, so when Oliver (the extra long Hot Dog) heard that I was making one, he begged to be featured.

By Su Mohr for TGIF; Hot Dog Stamp Set, Forever Greenery designer paper, Ornate Frames Dies, Dog Punch; #hotdogstampset #hotdogs #weinerdogs #doxies #slimlinecards #dogpunch #dogsoncards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #humorouscards #sumohr #aromasandart

Oliver

 

He said it would be very easy, because he was already the color of Crumb Cake Cardstock, and I just needed to stamp him in Early Espresso Ink. After cutting, I added a little more color with a Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend. 

 

Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Hot Dog Stamp Set, “I love you that’s the long and short of it,” in Early Espresso Ink. I used an Ornate Frames Die for cutting the label, which was perfect for extending Oliver’s body.

This is when I performed major surgery, by cutting Oliver in half, but he said it didn’t hurt. I glued Oliver’s front and back to the label, and placed him on Dimensionals. He was still smiling!

 

Oliver wanted to walk through a field of pansies , which he saw in the new 2021 Annual Catalog, but I said it was too soon to use the Pansy Petals Designer Paper, so he chose Forever Greenery.

Oliver’s card base is Garden Green Cardstock, 8″ X 7″, folded at 3 1/2″. The Pear Pizzazz layer is 7 1/2″ X 3″, and the Forever Greenery paper is 1/8″ smaller. It will fit into a regular, legal sized, envelope.

We were almost finished, but needed a touch of color, so Oliver said he wanted Real Red hearts. He said his friend, Dog Punch, wouldn’t mind if we borrowed some from him, especially since Dog Punch was retiring, and wouldn’t want to be forgotten. It’s hard to believe he was once valued at $18.00, and is now only $10.80. Such a shame! I think he’d love some new owners who would appreciate him.

 

I was inspired by TGIF.

 Product List

Curvy Forever Fern

Today’s curvy, “hello” card is a combination of retiring and “carrying-over” products. I hate to tell you, but the Curvy Dies are retiring, and will only be available as long as supplies last. The good news is the Forever Fern Stamp Set and Forever Flourishing Dies are “carrying over,” meaning they’ll be in the new 2021 Annual Catalog. However, they will not be offered in a bundle. So, if you want the 10% bundle discount, you should order it now. You can see everything in my Product List below.

Curvy Forever Greenery

 

To begin, the card base is Thick Basic White Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I cut Forever Greenery Designer Paper and Basic White Cardstock 1/16″ smaller than the card front, because I didn’t want it to hang over the edge.

Second, I used the Curvy Die to cut the Basic White Cardstock in half, and I trimmed one half to the size I wanted for the designer paper to show in the middle. I hope this makes sense.

 

To add some texture to the white paper, I ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, which is carrying over. Then, I glued the white paper on top of the patterned paper, before gluing the layer to the card base.

 

Next, I used a Forever Flourishing Die to cut the sprig from Soft Sea Foam Cardstock, and glued it in place. The sprig die is shown in the first photo above, just one of many great dies in the set.

The sentiment, “hello” is from the Forever Fern Stamp Set, stamped in Pretty Peacock Ink, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die. The Forever Greenery Designer Paper and Pretty Peacock color are retiring, but the Ornate Frames Die Set is carrying over.

Do you see the three, gold, sequins? They are from a carry-over pack of 3,600 Sequins For Everything.  I kid you not! Three at a time will make 1,200 cards. I think I’d better start making shaker cards! LOL!

Garden Wishes & Lasting Elegance

I can’t let the Lasting Elegance Dies retire without showing you one more time. If you click on the picture in my Product List below, it will take you to my store where you can purchase the die set for $8.50. The original price was $34.00; what a deal!

Garden Bee

 

After using the Lasting Elegance border die to cut from Very Vanilla Cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″), I embossed it with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.

Usually I stamp before embossing, but I wanted to see if it would work this way.  Stamping the foliage and pollen (Garden Wishes Stamp Set) in Shaded Spruce Ink was successful, because I used the Stamparatus. This enabled me to stamp several times, as well as adding a touch of Just Jade Ink to the “poofs.”

Next, I stamped the star of the show, the bee, in Early Espresso Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock, and used a Dandy Wishes Die for cutting. A Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend was used to color the bee, a perfect pop of color. Then, I used a die to make the bee’s trail. Isn’t it the cutest?

 

The sentiment, “hello,” is from the Well Said Stamp Set, but there is also “hello” in the Garden Wishes Stamp Set. I stamped the word in Early Espresso Ink, cut it with a Dandy Wishes Die, and attached it with a Dimensional.

The card base is Shaded Spruce, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

I was inspired by Fusion.

 

And, I received color inspiration from the Better Homes & Gardens magazine. It’s always fun to see color trends, and today’s card is an example of using Very Vanilla with Shaded Spruce for the “cream & sea green” trend.

Fine Art Floral Simplicity

Sometimes it’s simply a matter of letting the designer paper be the star of the show, and do all the work!

Fine Art Floral

 

Today’s card began with a beautiful piece of Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, cut with the largest Ornate Layers Die. Then, I gave it some texture with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. Don’t you love this paper?

Before gluing it to the Thick Basic White card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″) I added some Mossy Meadow, Braided Linen Trim. A 4 1/2″ strand was easily taped to the back, and I tied a bow, attaching it with Liquid Glue at the knot.

 

The sentiment is from the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set, stamped in Night Of Navy Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, cut with an Ornate Frames Die, and attached with Dimensionals.

 

No one loves beautiful flowers more than ladybugs, and a darling Ladybug Trinket landed right on the sentiment, secured with a Glue Dot.

 

I was inspired by the Paper Players.

True Love for GDP 286

Sketch challenges are always inspirational, and today’s Global Design Project sketch was no exception.

My favorite circle, lately, has been the Birds & More Die, which I used to cut a hole in the middle of dotted, True Love Designer Paper, 5 1/4″ X 4 “.

True Love Design

 

I glued this dotted layer to a Granny Apple Green card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Using more of the True Love Designer Paper, I fussy cut a flower, and colored it with Stampin’ Blends in four colors: Granny Apple Green, Old Olive, Mango Melody, and Daffodil Delight. After coloring, I attached it with Dimensionals.

 

One more pattern of True Love Designer Paper was used in two of the curvy strips, above and below, the sentiment. The curvy strips were cut with an Ornate Frames Die.

The sentiment, stamped on Basic White Cardstock with Memento Black Ink, is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, a favorite, and one that is retiring. You can see the entire Last Chance Products list by clicking on the box below.

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing how I used a favorite circle, and will get more inspiration from our GDP Designers, and post your cards in our gallery.
