Stamping Sunday Blog Hop As The Season Turns

 

Welcome to Stamping Sunday. Today we are excited to share our projects with the theme, “As the Season Turns.” You’ll find the designer’s name list below, making it easy to hop from blog to blog. Who is ready for some Fall inspiration?

The Quiet Meadow Bundle is one of my favorites, and the wildflowers are beautiful in all colors, including this Fall color palette. I used the Meadow Dies to cut from Cork Specialty Paper, along with Petal Pink and Calypso Coral Cardstock.

Wildflowers

 

After cutting my wildflowers, I stamped Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, with a flower from the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set. Using Crumb Cake Ink, I stamped full strength two times, and two times without re-inking. Then, dots were stamped with Cinnamon Cider Ink, followed by embossing the layer with the Timeworn Type Embossing Folder.

 

Next, I stamped “Thinking Of You,” in Crumb Cake Ink, on Thick Basic White Cardstock, and used a Meadow Die for cutting. Isn’t this label cute? It has holes for threading the Simply Elegant Trim, which I taped to the back of the layer, before gluing it to the Petal Pink card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. The bow was tied separately, and attached with a Glue Dot.

 

The last detail was adding the sweet, Bumblebee Trinket, which happens to be my October Host Code gift. The bumblebee was easily secured with a Glue Dot.

 

A small gift is always appreciated, especially when it’s chocolate.  Large candy bars fit perfectly in the Ombre Gift Bags, and the bags are easy to decorate.

I used the same set of Meadow Dies with the cardstock colors, and Cork, but chose different wildflowers, and a butterfly.

It’s a good thing I have more candy, because this Reese’s didn’t survive the making of this gift set.

 

Our designers are excited to share their “as the season turns” projects with you, so hop along, and enjoy!

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Celebrate

 

Welcome to Stamping Sunday! Today, we are excited to share with you “celebration” projects.  It’s fortunate for us that Stampin’ Up! decided to offer a second Sale-a-bration this year, because that means more FREE products with a qualifying order. It also means a special “joining” offer through the month of September, which you can read about below.

“Celebrate” is the perfect word for cards, because it’s suitable for so many occasions. I designed two cards, both with a casual crafter in mind; one who might enjoy fussy cutting, and another who has patience for detail.

By Su Mohr for Stampin Sunday; Click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set, Playful Alphabet Dies, Scalloped Contours Dies; #delicatedahlias #scallopedcontours #playfulalphabet #celebrationcards #flowers #flowersoncards #cardtechniques #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #howto #sumohr #aromasandart.com/shop

Dahlia Celebration

 

Let’s start with the fussy cut, Delicate Dahlia. Other than the hand cutting, this card is simple, with a few tools, which are in my Product List below.

I began with a Fresh Freesia card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Next, is a layer of Magenta Madness, cut with the largest Scalloped Contours Die. Then, a layer of tiny dots (Pattern Party Designer Paper) cut with the second largest Scalloped Contours Die.

 

To keep the card simple, you could stamp the flower one time, use its die for cutting, and your card would be beautiful. I made it complicated by stamping the flower three times, in three different colors (Fresh Freesia, Magenta Madness, Highland Heather). Then, I used two-step stamping, stamping over each flower with the outline stamp in Memento Black Ink. This stamp gave me the lines to follow for fussy cutting. After cutting, I layered the flowers with Dimensionals, and attached it to the card front.

The sentiment, “Let’s celebrate you,” is from the Sweet As A Peach Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink on gingham from Pansy Petals Designer Paper. I used the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting, as well as for the black & white, Pattern Party strip, beneath it.

 

My second design really highlights the word, “celebrate,” created with Playful Alphabet Dies, and Pattern Party Designer Paper. The letters can take a bit of patience, but worth the effort.

First, I attached a 1″strip of black, Pattern Party Designer Paper, to a 1″ strip of Foam Adhesive Sheet, placing the letters on top, and running 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 fairly easy to peel the backing and stick them to the card front. The letters could be lined up evenly on the lined Pattern Party Designer Paper beneath them, by putting the bottom of the letter down first.

The platform was created by gluing the designer paper to Thick Basic White Cardstock, 4 3/4″ X 1/1/2″, and cutting the top with a Scalloped Contours Die. 

 

The background was really fun to create, and something a beginner would enjoy. I started by randomly stamping a Delicate Dahlia stamp, in Magenta Madness Ink, on Basic White Cardstock, 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″. Then, I stamped over each flower in Memento Black Ink, using the two-step, outline stamp. Next, I used the largest Scalloped Contours Die for cutting.

I glued my pretty layer of flowers to a Polished Pink card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I attached my platform with Dimensionals, and added a few Artistry Blooms Sequins.

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Sale-a-bration Take Two

 

Welcome to Stamping Sunday! Today, we are excited to share with you projects highlighting NEW Sale-a-bration products! It’s fortunate for us that Stampin’ Up! decided to offer a second Sale-bration this year, because that means more FREE products with a qualifying order. It also means a special “joining” offer, which you can read about below.

I chose to show-off two of my favorites: the Summer Shadow Dies, and Be Dazzling Specialty Paper.

By Su Mohr for Stamping Sunday; click aromasandart.com to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Summer Shadow Dies, Be Dazzling Specialty Paper, Scalloped Contours Dies, Harvest Meadow paper, Beauty Of The Earth paper, Shaded Summer Stamp Set, Giving Gifts Dies, Ornate Frames Dies; #sale-a-bration #stampinup #sale-a-bration2021 #summershadowdie #shadedsummerstampset #scallopedcontours #bedazzling #givinggifts #ornateframes #harvestmeadow #beautyoftheearth #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart.com/shop

Summer Shadows

 

Let’s start with the one on the right, the simpler of the two. I named it “buttons and a bow.” It has a Rich Razzleberry card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, and a layer of Crumb Cake Cardstock.  This layer was originally 4″ X 5 1/4″, but I used a Scalloped Contours Die to cut the right side, making it narrower.

Prior to cutting, I used a  floral stamp from the Shaded Summer Stamp Set to stamp Crumb Cake Ink, randomly, creating my own designer paper. I “stamped off” to make the pattern more subtle.

The “button” flowers were cut with a Summer Shadow Die from Regals 6X6″ Designer Paper. Aren’t they cute in Razzleberry plaid? The leaves were cut with another Summer Shadows Die from Beauty Of The Earth Designer Paper, and the flowers and leaves were glued in place.

 

Lastly, “hello you” is from the Shaded Summer Stamp Set, stamped in Rich Razzleberry Ink on Crumb Cake Cardstock, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die. The, cute, little bow was created with a Giving Gifts Die and Be Dazzling Specialty Paper. This fabulous paper is one of the FREE Sale-a-bration items, and I suggest ordering ASAP while it’s available.

 

The card on the left has a bit more detail, but still easy to replicate. The card base is Crumb Cake Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. The first layer is Rich Razzleberry Cardstock, cut with the largest Scalloped Contours Die. The top layer is Painted Christmas Designer paper, cut with the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die.

The flowers and leaves were created with Summer Shadow Dies and Beauty Of The Earth Designer Paper.

The center of the flower is Be Dazzling Specialty Paper. I placed a small piece of the precious paper beneath the center of the flower die when running it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, careful not to waste it.

 

The sentiment is from the Shaded Summer Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso Ink on Painted Christmas Designer Paper. I used the smallest Scalloped Contours Die for cutting, and backed it with Crumb Cake Cardstock for sturdiness. Then, I strung it with Linen Thread, which I taped to the back, and attached with Dimensionals.

 

I hope you enjoyed seeing a couple ideas of how these products can be used. Now, keep hopping for more Sale-a-bration inspiration.

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop All Stitched Up

 

Welcome to Stampin’ Sunday! This month we are featuring “stitched dies,” and I have used three different sets of dies for today’s card and gift bag.

By Su Mohr for Stampin' Sunday Blog Hop; Click aromasandart.com to go to my website for details! Featuring: Count On Me Stamp Set, Stitched Leaves Dies, Stitched With Whimsy Dies, Ombre Gift Bags, Taylor Made Tags; #countonme #stitcheddies #stitchedleaves #Tailormadetags #giftbags #stitchedwithwhimsy #koalas #eucalyptus #sumohr #aromasandart.com/shop #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stamping #stampinup

Koalas

 

My idea began with adorable koalas from the Count On Me Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, and colored with Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends.

 

Did you know koalas aren’t really bears? I called them that for years.

 

They love to eat Eucalyptus leaves.

 

There is a Stitched Leaves Die that looks close enough to the real thing, that I cut from three colors of cardstock: Soft Succulent, Just Jade, and Garden Green. 

This die set is great, because it has embossing dies that make stitched veins for each of the leaves. You can see the entire set in my Product List below.

 

The background for my koalas and leaves is Thick Basic White Cardstock, with borders created with Stitched Whimsy Dies. I used the largest die on the card base, which is 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

The koalas are on a 2″ X 2″ square, embossed with a smaller, Stitched with Whimsy Die, that was a perfect fit.

 

Prior to attaching everything, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black Ink. “No matter what I’m here for you” is from the Count On Me Stamp Set, along with the coordinating sentiment on the bag, “Through thick and thin, count me in!” 

I added three Loose Flower Flourishes to the card, to coordinate with the Fresh Freesia Ombre Gift Bag. A pin dot of Tombow Liquid Glue is holding them securely.

The sentiment on the bag was cut with a die from the third die set I used today, Tailor Made Tags. If you look in my Product List, you’ll see there are two tags in four sizes with hole reinforcers. So fabulous!

 

I used the largest Stitched with Whimsy Die to add a detailed border to the bag, which shows on the back also.

The largest tag was used to cut Fresh Freesia, 2021-2023 In Color 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper.  Metallic Mesh Ribbon fit through the holes to tie the tags together, with the largest glued to the bag, and the smaller lifted on Dimensionals.

The bags can be used as envelopes, or to hold a small gift. I know you will like them, so I chose them as my “host code” gift for the month of July.

 

My July Host Code Gift

Just type the current host code (found beneath my profile picture) in the box provided, on your order of $75.00 or more, and I will send you the Ombre Gift Bags in August.

Use the Ombre Gift Bags for treat or gift bags. Decorate them or use them as is. Either way, you’ll make an attractive statement with your gift. Just pop a treat or gift into one of these bags, and add a handmade tag you make using stamps and punches or dies.

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Ombre

Today’s blog hop is all about a trending, coloring technique, ombre. What is ombre? “It’s having tones of color that shade into each other, graduating from light to dark.”

It was fun creating this Note Card Gift Set, using the ombre technique, with all of the Stampin’ Up! supplies you’ll find in my Product List below. There are 20 Note Cards & Envelopes in a pack; what a deal!

By Su Mohr for Stamping Sunday; Click aromasandart to go to my web site for instructions! Featuring: Note Cards & Envelopes, Artistically Inked Stamp Set, Artistic Dies, Ornate Layers Dies, Expressions In Ink Designer Paper, Blending Brushes; #notecards&envelopes #artisticallyinked #artisticdies #ornatelayersdies #expressionsinink #blendingbrushes #handmadecards #handmadegifts #handcrafted #minipaperpumpkinbox #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart #aromasandart.com/shop #stamping #stampinup #ombre #bloghops

Note Card Gift Set

 

First, using Blending Brushes, and four colors of ink (Fresh Freesia, Magenta Madness, Polished Pink, and Pale Papaya), I colored four pieces of Basic White Cardstock, 5″ X 3 1/2″. I started at the bottom, which would be the darkest, and added ink in a circular motion. To keep the ombre effect, I was careful to leave the top lighter. Then, I used an Ornate Layers Die for cutting.

 

Next, I used the Stamparatus to stamp “Thanks,” from the Artistically Inked Stamp Set, in matching colors. 

After gluing my ombre colored pieces to the front of the note cards, I stamped the flowers in matching colors, plus, I stamped the leaves in Pear Pizzazz and Just Jade Ink. Pictured are the Artistic Dies I used for cutting. Stamping the flowers in the same direction helps line up the die for cutting. After gluing the leaves to the flowers, I attached them with Dimensionals.

 

Once my cards were complete, I decided to decorate the envelopes with Expressions In Ink Designer Paper. 

I cut four pieces to match the colors, 5 1/16″ X 1 3/4″, gluing each to an envelope flap. Then, using my Paper Snips, with the flap as a guide, I trimmed the small amount of excess around the corners.

 

Finally, the cute, Mini Paper Pumpkin Box to hold the note cards. It’s the perfect size, which you can read about in my Product List. It’s very sturdy, has a glossy finish, folds together easily, and you get 10 in a pack.

 

I decorated the top of the box with Expressions In Ink Designer Paper, a sliver smaller than 5 1/2″ X 3 3/4″, so it wouldn’t be too close to the edge. I also added leaves, cut from Basic White Cardstock with an Artistic Die, and tied it with Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.

 

I think you can see how my colors were taken from the Expressions In Ink Designer Paper. Stampin’ Up! makes coordination easy!

 

I know you’ll want to see more ways to use ombre, and our Stamping Sunday Designers are excited to show you. Enjoy!

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.

By Su Mohr for Stamping Sunday Blog Hop; Click aromasandart to go to my web site for details! Featuring: Flowering Blooms Stamp Set, Flowering Dies, Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, Layering Ovals Dies; #retiringproducts #lastchanceproducts #stampinup #stampinupsale #floweringblooms #floweringdies #flowersoncards #simplestamping #cardtechniques #beginningstampers #avidstampers #casualstampers #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #sumohr #aromasandart

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.
