A Sheltering Tree Shines in Metallics

A Sheltering Tree Shines in Metallics

Today I decided to grab a stamp set that hadn’t been inked up yet (a little challenge for myself) and create a card with it.  I have had Sheltering Tree for over a year now and hadn’t taken the time to put it to work.  I am sure I have said this before, I LOVE DIMENSION! Since I didn’t see the need to fussy cut an image, I went ahead and added the dimension by embossing the image and sentiment.  I also popped up the middle of the main focal point.

I didn’t want to stick with just one color so I decided to go ahead and use two.  I wanted to use the sentiment “you warm my heart” and felt that the card should give a feeling of warmth and comfort.  To me, Gold and Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder give off the kind of warmth I was looking for.

Card Details:

  • Card Base is Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut to 4.25 in x 11in and scored / folded at 5.5 in.
  • 2nd Layer is Whisper White Cardstock cut to 4.125 x 5.375 in and adhered to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I first stamped the tree trunk with Early Espresso Classic Ink.  I then stamped the leaves and lawn in Versamark and embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I let is cool, stamped both images again in Versamark, as well as the sentiment,  but this time I embossed with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I flagged the end of the sentiment piece with the Banner Triple Punch.
  • I placed the 2nd layer on the Magnetic Platform, placed the smallest heart die from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits strategically over the tree and zipped it through the Big Shot. I then grabbed the next size larger heart die and zipped that through the Big Shot with a small piece of copper foil.
  • I adhered a piece of Gold 3/8″ (1 Cm) Metallic-Edge Ribbon to the back side of the 2nd Layer with Glue Dots.  I then did the same with the 1/4″ Copper Trim.  I took a small piece and made a bow, then adhered the bow to the card in the exact place I wanted it.
  • I finished off the card by adding Gold and Copper Metallic Sequins and a Gold Metallic Enamel Shape.

For Day 2, I am featuring a versatile, Enjoy Today Card that could be used for any special occasion such as a birthday, graduation, or milestone, the possibilities are close to endless.

The Card Details are as follows (this uses several of the same steps, materials and supplies as yesterday’s card):

  • Card Base is Dapper Denim Cardstock cut to 4.25 in x 11 in and scored / folded at 5.5 in to create a standard A2 sized card that fits beautifully in the Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes (included as a Free Item in the Premier Bundle).
  • I placed these dies  (the right nestled inside the left) staggered on the card base and zipped it through the Big Shot, twice to get both cut-outs.  I then placed a piece of Designer Series Paper behind the negative space left from the die cuts (same as yesterday’s card).
  • I cut a piece of the Gold Foil  to a 1/2 in x 2 1/4 in strip and punched it out with the Best Badge Punch to create the flagged end nestled behind the focal point and also the small accent in the top left corner of the card.
  • I ran another piece of Gold Foil cut to a 3 in x 3 in square through the Big Shot, again using these dies  (the right nestled inside the left). I also used the Layering Circle Framelits Dies to cut the three pieces adhered to the top. I stamped the Enjoy Today sentiment on the Gold Foil Circle using Memento Ink.
  • The card was finished off with Gold Vinyl Stickers, Metallic Sequin Assortment, Dapper Denim Ribbon and Gold Sequin Trim.
  • I added strips of DSP and Gold Foil to the Very Vanilla Envelop to step-it-up and coordinate with the card.
  • Here is my Hoot-a-Riffic Color Combination chart! Feel free to pin it! Hoot-A-Riffic Color Combination Dapper Denim Very Vanilla Metallic Gold Stampin' Up! Stesha Bloodhart Stampin' Hoot! #stampinup #stampinhoot #colorcombinations

This Little Piggy Stamp Set Makes Me Happy!

Stampin' Up! This Little Piggy Stamp Set and Wood Crate Framelits #sneekpeak #stampinup #piggy #love

Card Details:

  • The card base is Thick Whisper White Cardstock Cut to 4.25 in x 11 in and scored / folded at 5.5 in. Shimmery White Cardstock, which is watercolor friendly was cut to 3.5 in x 5.5 in.  I applied color with an Aqua Painter to create the look of the sun, sky and dirt.  Prior to adhering to the base of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals, I mirrored the color of the sun, sky and dirt onto the card base.
  • The piggy was stamped two times with Basic Black Archival Ink.  Once on Whisper White Cardstock and the other on Water Color Paper.  The image on the Whisper White Cardstock was colored in with a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and then cropped with a Paper Snips to fit behind the piggy to represent a shadow.  The Piggy was colored with an Aqua Painter and Blushing Bride Classic Ink and then adhered to the shadow image with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The sentiments are from This Little Piggy Stamp Set, Available to order June 1st.  The flagged end on the You Make Me Happy Sentiment was quickly created with the Banner Tripple Punch.  The Love You was cropped out with the Big Shot and the Heart Framelit from the Wood Crates Framelits, also available to order June 1st.
  •  Blushing Bride is the perfect color for Piggy.  Daffodil Delight was used for the sun and flower, Soft Sky for the sky and Crumb Cake for the mud / dirt. The entire card was colored with an Aqua Painter.
  • A piece of DSP from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack was used for the crate.  The Crate was created by slightly modifying one side of a crate.  I snipped a 1/4 inch border around a side of the crate and adhered it to the card by adding a few strips of Fast Fuse Adhesive.  The extra adhesive is hidden well by the crate.

Stampin' Up! This Little Piggy Stamp Set and Wood Crate Framelits #sneekpeak #stampinup #piggy #love

There are so many cute images available in the This Little Piggy Stamp Set.  I cannot wait to create more Piggy Cards and other paper crafts using this cute set.

Happy Anniversary Card, Seasonal Layers Sneak Peek!

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies Sneak Peek #happyanniversary #chairs #tranquiltide

Happy Anniversary Card, Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies Sneak Peek! Available June 1st!

Today I am showcasing the card I gave my hubby to celebrate our 2nd Year Wedding Anniversary, which also happens to be Cinco de Mayo.  I am not gonna lie, we did feel this date would be an easy one to remember :). 5/5/15 so we went with it. We got married on our back patio on a Tuesday afternoon in front of a couple of our closest friends.  Today is a beautiful day, just like the day we said I do.

The adirondack chair from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies portrays what it feels like to “sit back and relax”. That is exactly what we are doing today! So, when I thought about what to use on the card I wanted to make him, immediately grabbed these thinlits, a piece from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack and my Big Shot and quickly cropped out two chairs to place side by side.

Hoot-a-Riffic Color Combinations, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Tranquil Tide, Stampin' Hoot, Stesha Bloodhart #stampinup #colorcombinations

I grabbed the all new In-Color Tranquil Tide because I think it’s name spoke to my card, a card that speaks to the essence of tranquility. Early Espresso draws out the color of the wood grain from the Wood Textures DSP.  The white is watercolor paper.  It is kind of mix between Whisper White and Very Vanilla.

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies Sneak Peek #happyanniversary #chairs #tranquiltide #waterclor

Card Details:

  • The card base is created from Tranquil Tide Cardstock and is cut to 5.5 in x 8.5 in and scored / folded at 4.25 in.  I cut another piece of Tranquil Tide to create the mat behind the watercolor paper.
  • I used a dark piece of the Wood Texture Designer Series Paper as both a layer and for the Adirondack chairs Thins (from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies). Since Adirondack chairs are usually constructed with wood, I thought this DSP was a perfect fit.
  • The heart in between the two chairs is from the Labeler Alphabet Photopolymer Set and the Happy Anniversary Sentiment is from the Milestone Moments Stamp Set (2017 Occasions Catalog and is continuing to the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.

Although you can’t purchase a few things showcased in this card until June 1st, you can purchase a couple items now.
