Twigs & Sprigs with Wildlife Wonder

Twigs & Sprigs with Wildlife Wonder

Hello my stamping friends.

Today I am sharing a quick and really simple card featuring the Twigs & Sprigs Embossing Folder & Dies and the Wildlife Wonder Stamp Set.  Both of these items are new to my crafting collection and I really wanted to use them.  So I decided to pair them together.  It also happens that my boys both wanted to give their dad cards for Father's Day and Henry really liked the wolf image! 

To start this project I first dry embossed a Mossy Meadow card base and again embossed a ¼ sheet of Mossy Meadow and a ¼ sheet of Old Olive cardstock as well.  The 1/4 sheets were then die-cut with the coordinating Twigs & Sprigs Die.

Next I die-cut a Rectangular Stitched Die for my sentiment tag from Crumb Cake cardstock.  From there I stamped my sentiment on the tag with Soft Suede ink. Then I stamped the wolf image on Crumb Cake cardstock with Soft Suede ink and trimmed it out with my paper snips.

Now just mount up all the layers!  First I added the sentiment tag with dimensionals and the wolf on top of that.  The dimensional lift allows me to tuck the die-cut embellishments behind the image and tag.  Which is what I did with Multipurpose Adhesive. I started with the Old Olive pieces to create contrast with the embossed front, and then layered in the Mossy Meadow pieces.  

I’m really happy with the results. This project came together super quick and the elements were really easy to work with.  If you like easy, coordinated embellishments that could really be paired with many different images and themes, this Twigs & Sprigs Embossing Folder & Die might be a winner for you too.

Let me know what you think of today’s project.  Leave me a comment below. Thanks!

Happy Stampin,

Susan

Hues of Happiness - Cut It Out

Hues of Happiness DSP

Cut It Out - 3rd Thurs Blog Hop

Hello my stamping friends.

Today I have a project that features cutting out flowers from the Hues of Happiness DSP.  That’s right, this month’s theme for the 3rd Thurs Blog Hop is “CUT IT OUT”!  So I took it literally and am sharing a project where we cut out our embellishments from the spectacular DSP patterned paper.

Take a quick look at this.  You can use the coordinating dies from the  Happiness Abounds stamp set/die Bundle, or use your paper snips. Both methods allow you to create your own beautiful embellishments to add to your project.

I used a fun fold base card for this project, and have shared the details in my photo tutorial below.  But I also have a Stampin’ Show & Tell demonstration for you to watch as I put this whole project together for you from start to finish.  Watch how easy this fun fold is and how quickly you can decorate a card with these cut out embellishments.

Okay, now it’s time to leave me a comment, and then hop along to the next crafter for today’s blog hop!  Hope you enjoyed my card project today and that you are inspired to create one of your own soon.  Enjoy  Jan Musselman's project next.

Happy Stampin,

Susan

Project Instructions:

I always start by making all my pieces for the project.  I followed the fancy fold template.

These are quick and easy steps to create a little texture and color to the background panels for the card.  I used the Fern Embossing Folder to add texture to my Basic White panels.  Then I used my Granny Apple Green ink and a sponge dauber to apply a light ink application for a colored background.  I like how it can be colored but still have some white areas on the piece. Then I used the Multi-purpose glue to add the two panels.

Apply each layer and  the fold over flap with Multi-Purpose Adhesive as well.  Line up the 1 inch scored section of the smaller flap with the right hand edge of your card base. Then add the liner to cover up the addition.

Next die-cut or fuzzy cut your flower embellishments.  Next add the sentiment with dimensionals.  This allows us to tuck the flowers behind the sentiment for easy layers. Add the flowers where you like to fill in both background panels.

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.

Color & Contour for | CASEing Tues #359

Color & Contour

For CASE-ing Tuesday Sketch #359

 

Hello my stamping friends.

This project was inspired by the CASE-ing Tuesday FB Group today.  At first I thought this sketch might be tricky since it has a diagonal element, but really it wasn’t that hard.  I marked my DSP at ¾” at the top of the 3 inch panel.  Then placed it on my paper cutter so that the ¾” mark and the inside edge of the panel were in line with my paper cutter.  And that was that!

You can see the original catalog sample and sketch - CASE-ing Tuesday FB Group sketch #359.  Here is the catalog sample and sketch shared.

All Images© Stampin’Up! ®

I used a few retired items in my project today!  So please don’t get upset that you can’t find all my elements in the current catalog collection.  Just because something isn’t available any more should mean I can’t share it in a project.  And remember, when we CASE a card, you can edit it any way you like!

Happy Stampin,

Susan

I started by two-step stamping my flowers with Memento Black and Blushing Bride Ink.  I also stamped my sentiment on the skinny element.  Then just layer up the elements and build the sketch.

Remember to embellish your envelope and below I have how I finished off the inside panel.

Sun Prints DSP for Shades of Blue | Inkspirations Blog Hop

Sun Prints DSP for Shades of Blue

Inkspirations Blog Hop June 2022

Hello my stamping friends.

Welcome to the June edition of the Inkspirations Blog Hop.  This month Angie gave us a color challenge - SHADES OF BLUE!  

So of course, I pulled out the new Sunprints DSP from the Annual Catalog.  As soon as I saw this paper, I knew I had to have it.  I can remember making sun prints in art class in grade school with that special light sensitive paper and exposing the layers to the sunshine.  So cool!  

Here’s an image of the paper package and the samples from the annual catalog!

All Images © Stampin’ Up! ®     Sunprints DSP 158790

Today my project is a mix and match collection of stamps, dies and the designer series paper.  I used the Forever Fern Stamp Set and Forever Flourishing Dies, instead of the bundle set. I felt that the new set in the Sun Prints Bundle was beautiful, but similar enough to Forever Ferns that I skipped buying the stamp set..  I also wanted to show off multiple samples of the DSP so I used a funfold design I recently encountered.

If you have visited my blog before, you know I love to do a Stampin’ Show & Tell demonstration for you.  So I have one for you today.  I’ll take you through the card design and put it all together for 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.

I have a full photo tutorial for you below.  Starting with the Parts & Pieces, then the Fun Fold Template, followed by the stamped panels, and then putting it all together. If you  like to see the progression of the project take a peek at the photos.  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 Judith Patterson'sproject , and please leave us comments.  We love to hear from you.

Happy Stampin,

Photo Tutorial:

Prepare all your sections and pieces for the project. 

Follow the template below for scoring and folding the base card.

Stamp all the sections for your project and let them dry while you assemble the section on the base of the card.  I used Night of Navy ink on the Basic White cardstock, and Craft White ink on the Night of Navy cardstock.

Now assemble the base by adhering the 4 sections of DSP to the accordion portion of the card base. Then the liner section.

Now complete the pop up section of the card.

There is the only part you need to be really careful about.  Before you add adhesive to the center pop up section, decide where you want it to fit on the base.  Here I centered it from top to bottom, and also allowed to sit in from the right edge of the card a little bit.

I added the adhesive direction to the accordion section of the base, not the back of the pop up section.  Why? Because if you add too much adhesive, the backs will stick together.  Just add a small amount of glue to the area that will be touching the back of the pop up portion of our card.

Once you have the front panel attached, then open the card and repeat the same process for the inner section of the pop up.
