Textured Peony

 

Step by Step Instructions:

Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, and fold in the middle at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.

Glue a Square Vellum Doily to the card base, as shown.

Hand paint stripes of Soft Sea Foam with a Stampin’ Blend across Whisper White Cardstock, 3 1/2″ X 5″.

Use the Nature’s Thoughts Die to cut the striped layer, and adhere on top of the doily.

 

Cut the five “build a peony” flower parts from Very Vanilla Cardstock.

Emboss all, but the stamen, with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.

Brush the edges of the petals using a Sponge Dauber and Blushing Bride Ink.

Slide the flower parts together, smallest to largest, matching the bottom edge, and adding a dot of glue to hold them together.

Stamp three leaves in Soft Sea Foam Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with Peony Dies. Add color with a Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blend.

Attach the flower and two leaves with Dimensionals. You’ll add the third leaf after placing the sentiment.

 

The sentiment, “for you” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set. Stamp it in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, cut with the smallest Stitched Nested Labels Die, and tuck under the flower with a dot of glue. Now, add that third leaf.

For a touch of blue, like Manuela, add some Woven Threads Sequins, and you’re done!

A Daisy Becomes A Sunflower

I thought it would be fun to turn a daisy into a sunflower. Keep scrolling for instructions, and my Product List, where you’ll find supplies for both cards.

Daisy becomes Sunflower

 

Instructions:

The card bases are Crumb Cake and Thick Whisper White.

Cut the Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, and fold in the middle at 4 1/4″, making two card bases.

The next layers are Granny Apple Green and Cinnamon Cider Cardstock. Cut to 4″ X 5 1/4″, and adhere as shown.

Cut layers of Whisper White Cardstock 1/8″ smaller, and emboss with the Pinewood Planks (for the sunflower) and Ornate Garden (for the daisy) embossing folders.

 

Use the third largest Stitched Nested Labels Die to cut the hexagon from In Good Taste Paper (for the sunflower), and Granny Apple Green Cardstock (for the daisy).

For the sentiment, use the Well Written Die to cut “thanks” from Basic Black Cardstock (for the daisy), and Cinnamon Cider (for the sunflower).

Stamp the daisy from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set in Bumble Bee Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, twice (for the sunflower), and use the Daisy Punch for cutting.

Use the smallest Layering Circles Die to cut the sunflower’s center from In Color 6X6 Paper in Cinnamon Cider. Layer with Cardstock for thickness.

 

Use the Daisy Punch to cut two sets of petals from Whisper White Cardstock (for the daisy).

Give the daisy a small center, cut from In Color 6X6 Paper in Bumble Bee. I used the 1/2″ Punch, but it is retired. Layer with Cardstock for thickness.

If you have the die from Sweet Silhouettes, cut a stem from Granny Apple Green Cardstock.

 

Use a Bone Folder to curl the petals of the flowers, and attach in the center with Dimensionals.

Game On Birthday Card #simplestamping

Today’s birthday card is from the new, Game On Stamp Set. This idea has been “rolling” around in my head, since first seeing the set in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.

Without a bit of layering it is #simplestamping, meaning just stamps ink and paper, which is quick and easy, and great for beginners. 

By Su Mohr for cts; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: #simplestamping , Game On Stamp Set, Ornate Layers Dies; #simplestamping #birthdaycards #gameon #dice#rollthedice #die #rainbow #gamesoncards #birthdaycards #masculinecards #cardsketches #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stampinup

Roll with it

 

Instructions

Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.

You can simply stamp on the card base or…

Use an Ornate Layers Die to cut a layer from regular weight, Whisper White Cardstock. You could also use a 2 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock without the detailed, die-cut edge.

Choose five colors of ink to stamp the rainbow of die (not to be confused with cutting dies).

I used Highland Heather, Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, and Pumpkin Pie, which are in my Product List below. Stamp the first time in full strength, and a second time without re-inking. This is called “stamping off.”

 

Stamp the sentiment, “It’s your day. Roll with it” in Memento Black Ink. I used my Stamparatus to insure it stamped properly, but not necessary.

TIP: You can stamp on a piece of scrap paper before stamping on your project to ward off errors. Also, before stamping, look at the inked stamp to make sure there is full coverage, without ink on the edge where it’s unwanted.

 

Cut a piece of regular weight, Whisper White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. 

Glue the stamped strip at an angle, and trim the four corners.

Glue this layer to the card base, and you’re done.

 

My layout was inspired by CAS(E) this sketch.
