Penguin Place

Penguin Place

Something Old | Something New

 Hello my stamping friends.

So I really like to mix and match my current supplies with my retired supplies.  Sometimes I post a project I dub Something Old / Something New and most of the time I share it on my Facebook Page over the weekends.

Today I paired last year's Penguin DSP with the returning favorite Penguin Place Stamp set and Penguin Builder Punch.  I also used an old retired color Wild Wasabi for my cardstock layer and ink!  I also used the new Whimsical Woodlands embossing folder for some fun dry embossing, and created a window in my card with the Stylish Shapes Dies.

Here is my project start to finish for you.

Now I  followed the following steps:

  1. Die-cut the window, I positioned mine about ¾ inch in from the top and side of the cardstock panel.

  2. Emboss the panel next.

  3. Stamp my penguin image and added the beak, and bow tie.

  4. Use the Penguin Builder Punch to punch out the image.

  5. Use the banner die from Stylish Shapes Dies to die-cut the sentiment.

Okay,  next we adhere the DSP square to the back of the embossed panel.  I add adhesive around the top and two sides and then attach the DSP.  I leave the bottom unglued so I can slip the penguin in position after.

 

 

So now here is the final card project.

So what do you think! I would love to hear from you, leave me a comment below.

Tree Lot Dies for 3rd Thurs Blog Hop

Tree Lot Dies & Whimsical Woodland

for 3rd Thurs Blog Hop

Hello my stamping friends.

It’s time for the 3rd Thursday Blog Hop and this month our theme is Christmas In July!  I have a fun and frosty card to share with you that features the Tree Lot Dies from the summer Sale-a-bration catalog and the new Whimsical Trees embossing folder from the Fall Mini Catalog.  It’s also nice that the  Tree lot dies will coordinate with the Trees For Sale stamp stamp also in the Fall Mini Catalog.

Okay, so I actually started out by using a simple sketch shard by the Global Design Project Blog.  Not that you might think my project actually ended up close to the sketch, you tell me after you see my blog post.   If you are interested in seeing the original challenge you can visit their blog directly with this link and the link of the sketch below. GDP Blog.

Okay, so we have here a simple sketch.  If we break it down into parts and pieces:

  • a card base

  • a large circle image

  • a sentiment banner

But of course, remember it’s a sketch which means there are no measures given to restrict us in our creative process.  And just because there is a circle and a rectangular banner in the sketch, we can most certainly change the elements.

I started by choosing my colors to go with my Tree Lot Dies and Trees For Sale stamp set.  Here are my Parts & Pieces, I used Granny Apple Green, Real Red, Basic White, and Basic Black.

I decided to do an embossed Vellum layer and used the new Whimsical Woodlands Embossing Folder.  I wanted the card to be green, but also feel frosty!  So the vellum layer achieved that idea. I also used my Basic Black and Soft Suede Blend to color the tire and the front hitch of the camper.

So here is my finished project!  But what happened to my circle element?  Well originally I did have a die-cut circle to  “frame-in” my scene with the trees and the camper. But I decided it was too much.  I wanted more of the vellum layer to show and I decided to use the curved top of the camper as the curved top of my circle.  To take it a step further, I also used the trees to create a ½ circle behind the camper as well.  A bit of background but also a bit of shaping!

So what do you think! Leave me a comment, did I pull off the frosty look with the vellum layer?  Did the circle element get lost without the circle die-cut or does the camper and trees fulfill the idea of the sketch.

Okay, so now I send you along to the next paper crafter in our blog hop today. Go on along and visit Angie's Blog Post.  The full list of blog hop participants is here as well.

Hippest Hippos | FMS544

 

Hippest Hippos for Freshly Made Sketches 544

 Hello my stamping friends.

This project was created to play along with the Freshly Made Sketches 544 Challenge.  Plus I had a team color challenge to play along in, so I crafted for both!  So I decided to combine the two challenges and use the newest Sale-a-bration item I just received for this project today.  Take a look at the Hippest Hippos Stamp Set and the coordinating Hippo Dies.

Hippest Hippos     159921

Hippo Dies      159928

 Let’s start with the sketch.  Here is the sketch and link back to the Freshly Made Sketches Blog.  Be sure to go and check out the other projects shared.

The color challenge issued by my Queen Bee, Barb Brimhall, at the BZB Stampers Team, was as followed:

Starry Sky

Calypso Coral

Old Olive

 So, here is the project I crafted…

I used the three colors given as my cardstock options.  I paired a printed pattern sheet from the Rings of Love DSP, also from Sale-a-bration, as a background print strip.  I cut that at 4” x 2”, and then cut a break in it to extend it from edge to edge of my Starry Sky cardbase, 8 ½” x 4 ¼”.  The cut is hidden behind the other panels added.  An easy cheat to save on DSP!

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink on the cardbase, and heat embossed with White Emboss directly onto the Starry Sky card cardstock.

Okay then I die-cut two rectangles with the Scalloped Contours Dies from the Old Olive and Calypso Coral cardstock.  I die-cut the umbrella element from the center of the Calypso Coral panel.  Again the die-cut is hidden behind the Old Olive panel!

Next on Basic White cardstock I stamped my hippo with Memento Ink and then colored it with my Blends.  I used Smokey Slate and Calypso Coral.

Then to add just a bit of bling, I used our Basic Rhinestone Gems to add a little sparkle to the umbrella!

Well, let me know what you think! Leave me a comment here on the blog.

Wildlife Wonder with Rings of Trees DSP

 

Wildlife Wonder with Rings of Trees DSP

 Hello my stamping friends.

Today I have this fun project featuring the Wildlife Wonder stamp set and the Rings of Love DSP from the Sale-a-bration promotion.  I have been sharing tips with my demo team about CASE-ing projects.  And this is one of the projects I shared with them.  

CASE - Copy And Selectively Edit.  

This project layout actually was first introduced to me a couple of years ago in the  CASE-ing Tuesday FB Group.  And I have used it in the past for projects I have shared with you.  Here is the catalog shared.

I have a photo tutorial for you below, but also this Stampin’ Show & Tell Video Demonstration to share that takes you through from start to finish with me. I hope you enjoy the tutorial, and leave me a comment, let me know if I inspired you today!

So I used this base sketch and then crafted my project to fit my chosen stamp set and embellishments.  I let the DSP - Rings of Love help me choose the colors: Balmy Blue, Soft Suede, Basic White.

Rings of Love DSP (Sale-a-bration Jul-Aug 2022) 

All Images © Stampin’ Up! ®

Here are the supplies I started with.

Then I did some dry embossing on the cardbase with the Fern 3D Embossing Folder to give it a little texture in the background.  The stamping of images and sentiments was all completed with Soft Suede Ink.  Stamping the background images on the vellum panel and trimming out the bear to pop up on the vellum.

When all of our pieces are stamped and ready we can construct the card.

So first add the paper ribbon and the DSP panel to the card front.  Then add the vellum layer to the center and the bear should be added on top of the vellum with dimensionals.  I added liquid adhesive onto the card front, behind the vellum layer, where the bear would hide the adhesive.  Then add the sentiment with dimensionals as well.

Here is a look at the front and the inside together.

I would love to hear what you thought of this project.  Is it a pattern you will use in your own projects?  Thanks for visiting today.

In The Moment for FMS543

In The Moment for Freshly Made Sketches #543

 Hello my stamping friends.

This project was created to play along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge 543. I had so many ideas for how to use this sketch I had a hard time deciding on which to actually craft!  I am happy to share this simple idea with you today, but I can almost guarantee I will use this sketch again and share more fun ideas with you in the future!

Let’s start with the sketch idea given.  I really do suggest  that you visit the blog directly to see all the other fabulous ideas that were shared as well. 

So I finally decided to use the square element of the card as my main focal point.  So I stamped the image from the In The Moment stamp set.  And I moved the sentiment to the embellishment area of the sketch.  I stamped and trimmed it out with my paper snips.

From here I decided I wanted another panel to add some texture to the project.  I chose to use the Brick & Mortar embossing folder and I decided to emboss it on the diagonal.  Something different, but not over the top distracting.

Okay then from here I decided to add color to the scene with my Stampin’ Blends.  I kept to light subtle colors as its sentiment is all about RELAXING!

So here is my finished project! I hope you enjoyed the process of my crafting today. Remember a sketch is just a starting point in your project.  You can and should modify it to fit your personal style and purpose of your card. 

So what do you think! I would love to hear from you, leave me a comment below. If you are interested in more of my projects please check out my Summer Sale-a-bration Class that features the Wonderful World SAB Bundle, or subscribe to my newsletter if you wish.  Thanks for visiting my project today.

Rustic Harvest | Peaceful Moments for GDP350

Rustic Harvest with Peaceful Moments

For Global Design Project #350 Sketch Challenge

 Hello my stamping friends.

This project was created to play along with the Global Design Projects Blog Sketch #350. I recently received this Rustic Harvest DSP with my mini catalog pre-order and I decided to break open the package and create something new with the sketch.  

Rustic Harvest DSP 159633

All Images © Stampin’ Up! ®

So let’s start with the sketch itself.  You can link back to the original blog challenge post as well.

Okay, so we have here a simple sketch.  I already decided to use the Rustic Harvest DSP, so that helped me narrow down my colors to Mossy Meadow, Cajun Craze, and Basic Black.  Here are my parts & pieces that I started with.

Next I created the elements for my project CASE!

First I used the Stitched Greenery Die to die-cut or etch the leaf pattern into the card base. Then I die-cut a large circle with the Stylish Shapes Dies for my focal point.  I cut two small banners for the embellishment behind the sentiment.  In the final build of the card, I layered them together to make a longer banner.  Finally, I stamped and heat embossed with Gold emboss powder the sentiment form Peaceful Moments stamp set.

Here is what the sentiment label looks like close up.

So, let me know what you think! Leave me a comment, check out my Summer Sale-a-bration Class that features the Wonderful World SAB Bundle, or subscribe to my newsletter if you wish.  Thanks for visiting my project today.

Christmas In July - Color Challenge | Inkspirations Blog Hop

Forever Fern for Christmas in July

Inkspirations Blog Hop July 2022

Hello my stamping friends.

Welcome to the July edition of the Inkspirations Blog Hop.  This month Angie gave us a color challenge - and a theme Christmas in July!  Since we have crafters all over the globe who hop with us, we have a warm weather and a cold weather color palette.  

Cold weather:

  • Cherry Cobbler
  • Evening Evergreen
  • Soft Succulent
  • Sahara Sand
  • Early Espresso

Warm weather: 

  • Bermuda Bay
  • Coastal Cabana
  • Petal Pink

 

I chose to use the Cold Weather colors for my project!  I just had a hard time wrapping my creative brain around the warm weather colors and a Christmas theme.  Guess I need a holiday vacation in the tropics to give me inspiration!

In addition to the challenges issued by Angie, I decided to use a Catalog Sketch that was shared on the CASEing Tuesday FB Group this past week.  So here is the sketch that I am working with.

I created a Stampin’ Show & Tell video demonstration for you to walk you through the creative process from start to finish.  I take you through my creative thought process to pull the colors, the theme, and the sketch all together for today’s project.  Take a peak and then let me know if it inspired you.  Remember, you are welcome to subscribe to my YouTube Channel if you enjoy the videos, that way you will be notified when I share something new.

YOUTUBE LINK

Since I took you through all the steps and the sketch has measurements on it, I am just going to list the supplies I used below.  Remember to leave me comments at the end, tell me what you liked here today, and if I inspired you to do something similar. Then, hop right along to the next stamper in our blog hop today.  Enjoy Danielle Kassing's project, and please leave us comments.  We love to hear from you.

Happy Stampin,

Susan
