Country Birdhouse for Global Design Project 441

This week’s Global Design Project is a color challenge, using Balmy Blue, Lemon Lolly, and Fresh Freesia. See how our designers used the colors, then create your own design, and hang it in our gallery.

I’ll be giving you a sneak peek of the Country Birdhouse Bundle from the 2024-2025 Annual Catalog, because a cute, little, bird from that set insisted on participating in this challenge. Her reasoning was that she is the color of Lemon Lolly, and her name is Lolly, so I HAD to use her.

Lolly’s Ornament

 

Lolly said all I had to do was stamp her in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, twice, and use her Country Birdhouse Die for cutting. After coloring two birds with Lemon Lolly Stampin’ Blends, I asked about the second bird. She said I needed to fussy cut the wing from the second bird, so I could lift her wing on a Dimensional. I liked her idea!

 

Next, Lolly said I could use her birdhouse later, because she wanted to make an ornament for this card. We found a large, Stylish Shapes circle die, to make a stencil. I placed this over a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, and used a Small Blending Brush with Balmy Blue Ink for coloring.

The Country Birdhouse Die Set has great flowers for decorating Lolly’s ornament. We cut five flowers from Fresh Freesia Cardstock, and glued them in place.

To hang the ornament, I stamped a chain, from the Country Birdhouse Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink. Then, I added a Basic Black Cardstock bow, cut with A Country Birdhouse Die.

 

Lolly wanted to perch on a perfectly shaped, Stylish Shapes label. I stamped “Happy Birthday” in Memento Black Ink, and attached it with Dimensionals. I thought our card was complete, but she said the flowers needed some bling. So, I added Tinsel Gems to the centers of the flowers, and now she is very excited about her ornament.

Magnolia Mood for Global Design Project 440

This week’s Global Design Project is to CASE (copy and selectively edit) Nicole Peschke’s inspiring card.

 

I began with a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. The layer of Basic White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″, was given color with Moody Mauve Ink and a Blending Brush, applied over an Artistic Mix Decorative Mask. Then, I used a “splotch” stamp from Of Art & Texture with VersaMark and Gold Embossing Powder. The last picture partially shows that it is shiny gold, which doesn’t show at all in this picture!

White, Pink and Gold

 

Next, I used the large, Magnolia Mood Die to cut the flowers and leaves from Thick Basic White Cardstock, and glued it in place.

 

“Happy Birthday” is from the Magnolia Mood Stamp Set, stamped in Versamark, sprinkled with Gold Embossing Powder, and set with the Heat Tool. A Wonderful Thoughts Die was used for cutting, and I attached it with Dimensionals. I added three Pastel Adhesive Backed Sequins as a final touch.

Honey for Sweet Global Design Project 439

This week’s Global Design Project is all about “sweet treats.” My design features a tool kit, toting jars of honey, fussy cut from Bee Mine Designer Paper.

By Su Mohr for GDP 439; Click aromasandart.com to go to my website for details! Featuring: Bee Mine DSP, Queen Bee Stamp Set, Trusty Tools Dies, Bee My Valentine Stamp Set, Radiating Stitches Dies; #beemine #queenbee #honey #toolkit #trustytools #radiatingstitches #gdp439 #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stamping #stampinup #sumohr

Honey Jars

 

The tool kit was cut with Trusty Tools Dies from Sweet Sorbet Cardstock. This great, red color, is one of the 2022-2024 In Colors that will be retiring soon. Be sure to order it soon, if you want to keep it in your collection. After gluing the handle, and the honey jars, I placed the tool kit on dimensionals.

 

Next, I used the largest, and second largest, Radiating Stitches Dies to cut a yellow plaid frame from Bee Mine Designer Paper. I backed it with Basic White Cardstock, a spec smaller than the frame, so it wouldn’t show. Then, I glued it to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

 

“You’re as sweet as honey” is from the Bee My Valentine Stamp Set. I stamped it in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, cut it to size, and attached it with Dimensionals. A cute bee, from the Queen Bee Stamp Set, just happened to fly onto my card. You’ll find her in Online Exclusives, with a link below.

 

See how our designers used the theme, then create your design and hang it in our gallery.

Latte Love for Global Design Project 438

This week’s Global Design Project is a sketch challenge. I’m using the new, Online Exclusive products, Latte Love, with an Annual Catalog favorite, Gorgeously Made.

I began by using two Gorgeously Made Dies to cut a pattern of A Little Latte Designer Paper. Then, I used two, Gorgeously Made stamps to stamp Basic White Cardstock, 4 ” X 5 1/4″, in Early Espresso Ink. A third stamp was used to stamp the center panel,1 7/8 X 4 7/8″, layered on A little Latte DSP, 2″ X 5″.

Latte Love

 

After stamping the layer, I glued it to a Lost Lagoon card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I glued the die-cuts and panel in place.

Next, I used a Latte Love Die to cut a coffee cup from the A Little Latte Designer Paper, and attached it with Dimensionals. 

 

“You’re the best part of my day” is from the Latte Love Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso Ink on A Little Latte Designer Paper. To complete the sketch, I cut a 4″ X 1 1/4″ piece, and gave it an uneven top with a Gorgeously Made Die. The final step was adding three, delicious, Adhesive Backed Swirl Dots.

 

See how our designers used the sketch, then create your own card, and hang it in our gallery.

 

I’m also sharing with TGIF.

#simplestamping for Global Design Project 437

For this week’s Global Design Project, I combined our color challenge with Stampin’ Up’s #simplestamping challenge. That means I used Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather, and Shaded Spruce inks with just paper and stamps. 

By Su Mohr for GDP 437; Click aromasandart.com to go to my website for details! Featuring: Simply Zinnia Stamp Set, Of Art & Texture Stamp Set; #simplestamping #simplyzinnia #ofart&texture #flowersoncards #zinnias #onlineexclusives #gdp437 #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting

#simplestamping with Simply Zinnia

 

First, I stamped the three colors on Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, using a stamp from the Of Art & Texture Stamp Set. I started at the top, “stamping off” several times with Coastal Cabana, then Highland Heather, then Shaded Spruce. “Stamping off” is stamping on scratch paper, before stamping on your project, so the image is lighter. Next, I added a second, “spots,” stamp, “stamping off” one time in the three colors.

 

Second, I stamped the flowers, from the Simply Zinnia Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink.

The only other requirement for this month’s #simplestamping was to use a “thinking of you” sentiment. The Simply Zinnia Stamp Set has the perfect sentiment, “Sending flowers and thinking of you,” which I stamped in Memento Black Ink.

I glued my stamped layer to a Coastal Cabana card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, and my #simplestamping card was complete. Both stamps sets are in Online Exclusives, and you’ll find the link below.

 

See how our designers used the colors, then add your creation to our gallery.

Magnolia Mood for Global Design Project 436

This week’s Global Design Project is to CASE (copy and selectively edit) Jay Soriano’s Simply Sparkling birthday card. See how our designers “cased” his card, then you design one, and hang it in our gallery.

 

I chose to case Jay’s lay-out, using the new set, Magnolia Mood.  The magnolia blossoms stamped beautifully in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. After stamping the blossoms, I colored the leaves with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends, used their Magnolia Mood Die for cutting, and placed them on Dimensionals.

The Magnolia Mood Bundle is an Online Exclusive that just became available last week. Clicking the pictures in my Product List below will take you to my store for ordering.

Magnolia Mood

 

The background was created with two strips of Basic White Cardstock, 1 3/8″ X 5 1/2″, glued to Fresh As A Daisy Designer Paper, 3 1/2″ X 5 1/2″. After gluing, I gave it texture with the Splatters Embossing Folder, and glued it to a Granny Apple Green card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded 4 1/4″.

 

The sentiment, “Happy Birthday,” is from the Magnolia Mood Stamp Set, stamped in Pretty Peacock Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I used a Wonderful Thoughts Die for cutting, and placed it on Dimensionals. Before attaching it to the card front, I used Glue Dots to hold a loop of Silver & White Sheer Ribbon. To complete the design, I added three, Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearls.
