Dainty Flowers | Charming Sentiments

Dainty Flowers | Charming Sentiments

Hey stamping friends,

So today I have a project I crafted for the Freshly Made Sketches Blog Hop, Challenge FMS#569.  So the way it works is they offer up a sketch and then we use it to craft our own projects. Then we share them online for all to view and visit our blogs.  So here is the offered sketch and it will link you back to their site to the challenge.

For my project today, I immediately wanted to use my Dainty Flowers DSP from the Sale-a-bration promotion. There is this one sheet that offers up multiple images that can be die-cut or trimmed out.  And I decided to die-cut out the image with my Rectangular Stitched Dies and then stamp directly to paper my sentiment of choice from the Charming Sentiments stamp set.  Then I added a little bling with the Iridescent Pastel Gems on the paper ribbon band.  

I love how this sketch can be a really easy starting point for any project.  Whether you choose DSP or stamp an image.  Be sure to check out the blog hop and see all the different ideas that were shared.

Here is my project.  All the items I used are listed below.

In The Country | SAB Project | Modified Barn Fun Fold

In The Country | SAB Project

Modified Barn Fun Fold

Hello my stamping friends.

Welcome to the Stamping with Friends Blog Hop - featuring wonderful items from the Sale-a-bration Promotion.  Today I am sharing a project that features the In The Country stamp set.  This is a 2 stamp set with beautiful line images.  Take a look.

In The Country      160828

This set is available during the promotion with a $50 qualifying order.

 

So I created a fun fold to showcase this image on the project.  I started by stamping lightly with Crumb Cake ink on Basic White cardstock.  Then I then added color with my Watercolor Pencils (Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, and Real Red) to add color to the image and then soften my pencil lines with a Blender Pen.  Then this element was finished off by die-cutting with a scalloped edge die.

Then I crafted my card base with a selection from the In the Daydream DSP Hostess paper from the annual catalog, and used a modified barn fun fold template.  This happens to be one of my January Fun Fold projects, and I do have a video showing how to put this design together.  If you are interested see the bottom of the post and follow my links to the video and blog post.

Here is a peek at the Parts and Pieces I started with.  All the measures are available on the Project Template.  All the supplies I used are listed below.

I crafted my card and then added sentiments from the Charming Sentiments stamp set.  This one is new to me, and it does have a coordinating die set.  I like how light the sentiments are, I find them fun and easy to add to my projects while having some different options from our standard phrases.

Here is a look at the project open, I love how you can showcase  lots of different panels of DSP  with this design.  And how the belly band pulls it all together.

Okay, it’s time to send you along the Blog Hop!  Be sure to leave me a message below, let me know if you have any questions about this project.  Also, did you like it?

Enjoy all our projects.

Feb 2023 Sketch Challenge for Inkspirations Blog Shop

Enjoy the Rhythm for Glimmer & Shine

Inkspirations Blog Hop January 2023

Hello my stamping friends.

It’s time for the first blog hop with the Inkspirations Blog Hop group in 2023.  This month Angie offered up a double challenge:  1) a sketch to follow and 2) add some glimmer and shine!  I decided to use this new stamp set Enjoy the Rhythm from the Spring Mini Catalog.  My hubby is a drummer so this was a no brainer for picking up to craft with.

So I chose to follow the sketch offered but did use a Z-fold structure.  Okay, here is the offered sketch.  Followed by my card.

You can see I followed the sketch, but like I said I did create a Z-fold with the front of the card. I scored at  1 ¼ inches and folded back that section of card. Then added some silver foil to that folded back flap to add a little glimmer!

On the face of the card I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with White emboss powder for the music images.  I also heat embossed the electric guitars on the inside exposed portion of the card.

I stamped the drum kit image with Memento black ink and stamped on Basic White cardstock. Then I used my Stylish Shapes Dies - the largest square one, and die-cut the image on the diagonal, making the diamond embellishment!  Then I colored the hardware and cymbals with my Soft Suede Blend marker.  I also add Wink of Stella to the cymbals to make them sparkle.

Here is the inside of the card laid open.  I lined up the three stamps here on one  clear block and then stamped with the Memento as well.

So I hope you enjoyed my project today.  Please leave me a comment down below and then use this link to hop along to the next crafter in our hop today.  

Happy Stamping,

Susan

Love Cats - Head Over Heels | Penny Spinner

Love Cats - Head Over Heels | Penny Spinner

Hello my stamping friends.

So, this might sound weird, but I’m sure I’m not alone… do you ever all of a sudden have a great idea for a card project?  I woke up last week and just knew I had to do a spinner card with this LOVE CATS stamp set.  So that’s the project I am sharing today!

It’s not as difficult as you might think.  It’s two pennies, a couple of dimensionals, and a cut slit in the card so the penny disc can spin and roll along the opening.  The rest is just regular card making skills.

So I have a Stampin’ Show & Tell video to show you this project from start to finish.  Leave me a comment here or over on the YT Post. Let me know if you might try this one as well.

YOUTUBE LINK

Leave me a quick comment below. Let me know if this is something you might try in your own projects!

Happy Stamping,

Susan

 

Quick Step Tutorial

  1. Make your card front, 4 x 5 ¼. Use a die-cut or paper punch to open a ¼ opening in the panel.  This is where your penny spinner will roll.

  2. For the penny spinner sandwich, layer: penny, mini dimensional (in the middle of penny), positioned between the front and back of the panel, then another penny.  

  3. Add the image to the top penny with another dimensional.

Love Cats - Hi There

Love Cats - Hi There!

Hello my stamping friends.

Today I have another Love Cats project for you and this one also features the Picture This Dies.  I actually received a demo swap project recently and that inspired me to create one of my own.  Here’s the card I received from Robin Greer.

I changed the colors and textures, but the card is all laid out the same.  I used my Stamparatus to stamp the images all onto one piece of cardstock and then die-cut it with the Picture This Die.  Be sure to check out the Show & Tell video demonstration to see how.

YOUTUBE LINK

Leave me a quick comment below. Let me know if this is something you might try in your own projects!

Happy Stamping,

Susan

Quick Step Tutorial

  1. Start by making a template of the Picture This die.  Be sure it’s the same size as your cardstock that you will be stamping and cutting on.  4 x 5 ¼ works well.

  2. Now use the Stamparatus and your paper template to position the cat stamps onto the clear arms of your stamping tool.  I put two on one side of the clear panel, and use the second side for the third image.

  3. If necessary, for better coverage of ink on the stamped cat images, repeat the ink and stamping on the Stamparatus.  Remember, if you use your magnets to keep your paper secure, repeat stamping is easy!

  4. Then use the die and die-cut the cat images you stamped.  Also die-cut the Tahihan Tide 4 x 5 ¼ panel for the card front.  

  5. Dry emboss the Tahihan Tide panel after die-cutting if you want to add texture.

  6. Ink the HI THERE on the sentiment stamp  with a marker, then stamp on scrap Basic White cardstock.  Use the same die to die-cut the words out.

  7. Now position all the pieces on the card front.  I used liquid glue to position 3 - 1x1 squares of DSP behind the smaller holes in the die-cut.  Then repeat with the three cats.  Then the Tahihan Tide is positioned with dimensionals. And then add the sentiment.

Love Cats - Hanging Out With You

Love Cats - Hanging Out With You

Hello my stamping friends.

Ready for some fun loving CAT Cards?  Check out this fun new set from the Spring Mini Catalog - Love Cats!  And okay, maybe it’s my crazy brain and living in a house with musicians, but every time I write or think “love cats”;  my brain shouts “Love Shack” from the B52’s song… (sorry felt I should share that little chuckle!)

Okay, back to today’s project. So this one I crafted for an early Demo Swap for the new Spring catalog.  I wanted to keep it simple but also add a little fun element.  I choose my color’s first.  Early Espresso and Sweet Sorbet.  I have a friend who loves putting brown and pink together, which worked well here.

I stamped my cat image first, then added color to the heart with the coordinating BLEND marker.  Then stamped my sentiment to match.  This cute mini plaid paper is also in the new catty - Country Gingham 6 x 6 DSP (160388) - it has four colors but I used the Sweet Sorbet.  Then I used the sparkly Sweet Sorbet ribbon as my fun element!  I have some photos below to show how I pierced the image and inserted the ribbon under the  belly of the cat.

Here’s a look at both the front and center of the project.

Leave me a quick comment below. Let me know if these kitty’s are as fun as I see them.  And yes, don’t let me be the only one humming the B52’s Love Shack!

Happy Stamping,

Susan

Dainty Flowers - Heat Emboss Resist

Dainty Flowers | Emboss Resist Technique

Hello my stamping friends.

Welcome to the first Stamping With Friends Blog Hop for 2023! We are showcasing Emboss Resist Techniques this time with our project posts, so be sure to hop along the links and see varying applications of this technique.

I am showcasing a sample from the Sale-a-bration DSP - Dainty Flowers for my focal  image on my project today.  This comes on a sheet of 12 x 12 Designer Series Papers. I do a simple die-cut window and emboss direct to the DSP image.  Then add ink to the exposed DSP section to create a spotlight on the image.

I also used the stamp set Sending Support, which is also a Sale-a-bration item now available with a $50 purchase during the promotion.  And I also dyed my ribbon to color match my DSP colors using my BLEND marker.
