Awash With Beauty - Lots of Love

Awash with Beauty DSP - Lots of Love

Hello my stamping friends.

Today I am creating a project from a sketch shared with my demo team as a weekly challenge in our Team FB Group.  One of the perks of having a strong demo team is we get to swap, create, and share with one another.  I decided I wanted to create my card with something I had not used yet in my collection so I picked up the Awash With Beauty DSP package that I ordered back in May, and still had  not even opened it to take a look at!

I share the sketch and the papers with you in the Stampin’ Show & Tell video I have posted to my YouTube Channel.  The basic measures and supplies I used will be listed below.  Watch the Show & Tell and then leave me a comment as to if I inspired you to be daring and make a card today too!  Oh and watch for my thrifty little trick with the DSP.

Okay here is the sketch breakdown and the supplies I used.  Please consider placing an order with me either for stamping supplies in my Online Store or check out My Little Shop of Cards for actual cards I have made and have available.  Your support is greatly appreciated.

Rustic Harvest | endlessly GRATEFUL

Rustic Harvest - endlessly GRATEFUL

Hello my stamping friends.

Today I am crafting with the Rustic Harvest DSP again, and playing along with the CASE-ing Tuesday FB Group for this week's Catalog Case Challenge.  This group is fun to craft with, not only do you get to see catalog samples, but the group host breaks them down into parts and pieces so others can easily create from the basic sketch as well.  Be sure to check the group if this is the type of crafting assistance you like!

Okay first let me share all the fun images from the Rustic Harvest DSP package with you.  If you have been with me for I while you know I have a real love of pumpkins! So of course I needed to have this paper to craft with.  I’ll probably need to buy more as well.  I love the images of the fall flowers, pumpkins and gords, but I also love the black & white prints as well.

Okay so now let me share the catalog sample and the sketch breakdown offered up from the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group.

Okay, so we have here a beautiful catalog sample that features the Sweetest Christmas Suite and wonderful embellishment elements to dress it all up.  Then we have the simple sketch breakdown with the layout and the basic element measures.

For my card I let the colors of the Rustic Harvest DSP help me choose my colors and used them to build my layers. But as I was creating I created a couple of versions to share.  From a very basic beginner card to a more dressed up and embellished card.  No matter your level of experience, you can create cards to share.

BASIC LEVEL:

  • Cardbase

  • Circle Die

  • Paper Ribbon

  • Sentiment 

STEPPED UP LEVEL:

  • Cardbase

  • + Dry Embossing

  • Circle Die

  • Paper Ribbon

  • Sentiment 

EMBELLISHED LEVEL:

  • Cardbase

  • + Dry Embossing

  • Circle Die

  • + DSP Panel

  • Paper Ribbon

  • Sentiment 

 I know you like me to break it all down, so here are the steps I took to create the project to share.  

Next I created the elements for my project CASE!

I used the sentiment from the Very Best Occasion  stamp set, that is currently available in the Fall Mini Catalog.

Not too hard to follow, right? So, let me know what you think! Leave me a comment, ask a question or subscribe to my newsletter if you wish.  Thanks for visiting my project today.

Boughs of Holly Catalog CASE

Boughs of Holly Catalog CASE

Hello my stamping friends.

So today’s project features the Boughs of Holly Suite and I am sharing a Catalog CASE project.  Remember, CASE can mean Copy And Selectively Edit… so if you see a card you just love the layout and design on, you can use that as your inspiration for your own project.  And if you don’t have exactly the same items, use what you have and make it your own!

Boughs of Holly Suite 159612

All Images © Stampin’ Up! ®

Here is the catalog sample I am CASing for you today! It uses the coordinating DSP package Boughs of Holly to create both the background and the focal images of the flowers.  We add some embellishments and a spotlight shape to draw our focus to the center. And they make the sentiment pop with some heat embossing. You can see the products that the design team used for this project with this Supply List Link.

So for my project I followed the sample almost completely.  I didn’t have all gold holly leaf embellishments, so I made my own out of Gold Foil and the coordinating dies that go with the stamp set bundle. And I made this card a little bit slim… that is to say, it is 4 inches wide instead of our standard 4 ¼”.  This was to allow my DSP which is 12 x 12 to be used to make 6 cards in total.  A simple way to make our supplies go a little bit further!

Take a look at the Stampin’ Show & Tell Video Demonstration I have prepared for you, and see how easy it is to create this project. 

YOUTUBE LINK

Here is a photo breakdown of the project for quick reference.  I start with the basic parts and pieces of the project with the measurements.  Then the quick steps to prepare all the elements for the card.  Then just pull them all together and assemble.

 

So, that was a lot of fun.  Beautiful images and patterns in our DSP, foil and texture elements, plus my favorite heat embossing.  There were a lot of elements but enjoy the process and create a project you are really proud of.  Then best of all, send it to someone who will enjoy it as well.

As always, let me know what you think by leaving me a comment here on the blog or over on the YouTube post.  If you want to stay up to date with my projects and what is happening with Stampin’ Up! Please feel free to subscribe to my newsletter.

Splendid Day - Sending Hugs

Sending Hugs with Splendid Thoughts

Hello my stamping friends.

So today’s project features the Splendid Thoughts Suite from the Fall Mini Catalog.  The suite has a stamp set and dies, plus the Designer Series Paper Splendid Day, which features some beautiful foil sheets.

Splendid Day Suite 159681

All Images © Stampin’ Up! ®

My project was created for a demo swap so I wanted it to feature some stamped images, samples of the DSP, and Elegant Eucalyptus Embossing Folder as well.  I did some direct stamping on the DSP and then added layers of embellishment.  A small rectangle of embossed cardstock, then layers of die-cut floral embellishments that are tucked into a die-cut shape from the bundle for the sentiment.  As you can see I created them as monotone cards, but with this DSP was able to craft different colors.  (Pool Party and  Soft SeaFoam)

Take a look at the Stampin’ Show & Tell Video Demonstration I have prepared for you, and see how easy it is to create this project.

Here’s a look at the two color variations of the card.

Now for basics to help you get started on your own projects!  Remember, if you don’t have this exact bundle, use what you do have, and CASE the design.  Here I share the Parts & Pieces of the project with the measures of the panels I used.  Then I follow it up with the basic steps used to create the different panels.

Daisy Garden | Color Challenge

Daisy Garden Color Challenge

 Hello my stamping friends.

Here is a quick and simple project that features the Daisy Garden background stamp set.  Recently my demo team was given a color challenge: Polished Pink, Orchid Oasis, and Pear Pizzazz! Bright colors right.  So I immediately thought about rainbow daisies, and here is the project that I crafted.

So I used my Stamparatus to stamp the image onto my Basic White cardstock layer which I trimmed down to 3 ¾ x 5 inches.  And I mounted that on a Polished Pink cardstock base that was die-cut with the Stitched Greenery Die.  I used my sponge daubers to add the ink color to the stamp, and then stamped it down.  Followed by using my Aqua Painter to then add a little bit more Pear Pizzazz to add color to the stems and leaves of the flowers.

So a really quick and easy card to craft. So what do you think, is this something you could try? I would love to hear from you, leave me a comment below. Thanks for visiting my project today.

Happy Stampin,

Rustic Harvest | Simple Sketch

Rustic Harvest Simple Sketch

Hello my stamping friends.

Okay, in truth my friends, this card really just about made itself!  I was given the dimensions of the elements to use for the project, and it specifically wanted DSP for the layers. So I pulled my new package of Rustic HarvestDSP and started chopping it up.  I love these large blooms in the fall colors for the main panel.  Then just two coordinating colors for the thin paper ribbons to run along the side.  I grabbed a sentiment for the 2 inch circle element, and just like that it was done!

Really just too simple to not make a card of your  own using these elements and layout! Go get crafty.

Clean and simple if I do say so myself! So what do you think! Are you going to try this simple sketch? I would love to hear from you, leave me a comment below. If you are interested in more of my projects please subscribe to my newsletter if you wish.  Thanks for visiting my project today.

Hippest Hippos - Catalog CASE

Hippest Hippos - Catalog CASE Project

Hello my stamping friends.

So today for our Follow Along Friday project I am sharing a CATALOG CASE.  This was a challenge presented to my demo group last month, and today I will take you through my project and how the catalog project led the way to my creation.

First let’s start with the Catalog Sample!  This sample comes from the Fall Mini Catalog and features the Sweet Candy Canes Bundle.

So if we break this sample down, we have a standard card 8 ½ x 5 ½ scored at 4 ¼.   We have the striped background, which they made with the die that comes in the Candy Cane Dies, and coordinates with the Sweet Candy Canes stamp set.  Then they have their colors and die-cut focal image, the sentiment tag, and some fiber and die-cut embellishments tucked around the focal image.

So here is my project…

My project features the Hippest  Hippos SAB stamp set and coordinating Hippo Dies.

  • Striped Background - At first I just used my score board to add score lines on the diagonal every ½ inch and ⅛ inch alternating across a Basic White cardstock panel.  Then I watercolor washed the stripes with Real Red ink and the Sweet Sorbet ink.  After it was dry, I decided I wanted more stripes so I embossed it with the Striped embossing Folder.  I had to run it through twice since I did it on the diagonal.

  • Focal Image - I stamped my hippo in Real Red ink and then I used my Blender Pen to blend and color in the image.

  • Embellishments -  I die-cut from the Hippo Dies the heart embellishments from Real Red cardstock.  I used an unraveled edge piece of the White Frayed Ribbon for my fiber.   And I die-cut two leaf images from the Splendid Thoughts bundle.

  • Sentiment -   My sentiment tag is die-cut from the Stylish Shapes dies.  

So I kept the basic layout of the card and the idea of the striped background and central focal image with embellishments.  But by changing the color selections and the stamps used, I have a whole new card!

Remember - CASE can mean Copy And Selectively Edit or Copy And Share Everything!  I like both ideas, so pick a project that inspires or challenges you and create something of your own today!
