Awesome Otters - It's Your Birthday

So, here is my Awesome Otters card project for the hop today!  I just think these otters are super cute, plus it is a big birthday month in my circle of family and friends this month.  On this card, I used a couple of interesting techniques. 

First, I created the background image, on the card base, by inking my dry embossing folder and then pressing the image to the cardstock.  I had to do this twice to cover the whole front panel, but it's a technique I use from time to time.

The second, is cropping a paper punch.  Check out the Pool Party sentiment in the project photo.  I first punched out the tag from the Taylored Tag Punch.  Then trimmed off one side of the pointed shape, to make it squared and it fits nice to the DSP.  So don't get stuck with a tag that isn't necessarily the shape you want.  Crop it to fit your project.

The full list of supplies and the full tutorial is shared here in my post.  Just scroll down past the BLOG HOP links.  Thanks for visiting today, and enjoy the rest of the hop projects.

Happy Stamping,

Susan

Project Tutorial

Instructions:

  1. Cut a 8 ½” x 5 ½” piece of Basic White cardstock. Score at 4 ¼”. Fold in half to form a card base. Burnish crease using a Bone Folder.

  2. Let's start by adding  some background “splotches” to our card base.

    • Using the Splatters Embossing Folder and Bermuda Bay ink, ink one side of the embossing folder.

    • Then press that inked surface to the front of the cardstock.

    • Use the embossing folder as a stamp.  But you have to hold it still, and press or rub firmly to transfer the image.

    • Repeat to cover the entire surface with the splattered look.

  1. Prepare the following pieces:

    • Bermuda Bay cardstock 3 ¼” x 4 ¼”

    • Simply Marbleous DSP 3” x 3” - die-cut with Stitched with Whimsey square framelit.  Stamp the otter image with Memento Ink.

    • Basic White cardstock sentiment tag - use a scrap piece - stamp with “It’s Your Birthday” and die-cut with Tasteful Labels Dies

    • Pool Party cardstock - 3” x 2”, punch with Taylored Tag Punch and then trim off one banner end to square off.  Stamp with “you are OTTERLY AWESOME”

    • On Basic White cardstock - scrap piece - stamp the otter image and the party hat with Memento Ink & then color with BLEND Markers.  Use your paper snips to trim both images out of the cardstock.

  1. Now build your focal point for the card.

    • Use liquid glue to adhere the otter over the top of the stamped image on the DSP.  And also the party hat into place.

    • Then adhere that square to the Bermuda Bay mounting cardstock.  Positioning it near the top with equal framing space around the top and two sides.

    • Then adhere, the cropped Taylored Tag sentiment.

    • Then, with dimensionals, add the banner sentiment.

    • Adhere the entire assembled focal image to the front of the card.

Awesome Otters - SAB Catalog CASE

Awesome Otters (SAB CATALOG CASE)

Hello stampers!

So, it's Monday, and I have a catalog CASE project for you today.  It features the Awesome Otters stamp set from the SALE-A-BRATION Promotion that is currently offered by Stampin' Up! A similar card is featured in the promotional catalog with this set, and I re-created it with just a little difference.  I oriented mine vertical instead of horizontal.

I got to use two new dies to my collection, the Stitched with Whimsy Die that creates a cute curves outline of dashed lines, like a stitched frame really.  And the Picture This Dies, that did the circle cut outs for me.  The Picture This Die would make doing a SPOTLIGHTING CARD easy.  I'm excited to make other cards with these dies as well, so stay tuned for more in the coming weeks.

I had a lot of fun re-creating this card from the sample in the catalog.  I did some coloring with my BLEND markers.  Fussy cutting with the Paper Snips, and then piecing all the parts together to make this cute card.  Be sure to watch the SHOW & TELL Video Tutorial I recorded to share with you, it is below.  You can also follow me on YOUTUBE and be alerted whenever I post a new project video as well.

Okay stampers, do some fun stamping this week.

  7. Now stamp just the edge, the water wave image, onto the remaining circles and reposition them into the circle die-cut areas as well.

  8. Use your paper snips to create the grass embellishment from scrap Granny Apple Green cardstock.  Take a small section, ¾” inch by ¾” and cut “fringe” into the cardstock.  Then use liquid adhesive to add them to the smaller circles for embellishment.

  9. On vellum cardstock, stamp the expression, “OTTERLY AWESOME”.  Let it dry completely.  Then die-cut with the Tasteful Labels die that looks like a banner.  Use liquid adhesive to add this to the last larger circle.

Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop - Sketch Challenge

Catching Butterflies

Welcome to the first blog hop of 2022 hosted by STAMPING Inkspirations!  I am so happy to be hopping again with this group, there are always so many wonderful projects that are shared but some very talented creators.  So after you see my project for today, be sure to hop along and see the others as well.  The list of links will be near the bottom of the post.

So it's Sale-A-Bration time with Stampin' Up! and today's project features one of the stamp sets that is offered as a bonus item with a minimum order.  Catching Butterflies is the super cute set with simple line images that are great for coloring.  Today I colored mine with ink and my Blender Pens.  I wanted a lighter inked look that straight ink from the markers or Blend markers, so I opted to use my good old Blender Pens.  It's like having a marker in any color ink you desire!

Today's blog hop oftered up two challenges.  One being a sketch idea, the second being using a little bit of sparkle.  Here is the sketch, and I let the pattered paper, Abstract Beauty featured in the new mini spring catalog, bring the sparkle with the gold metalic elements in the pattern.

I really like the base layer of this card design today, because it is super simple.  The Abstract Beauty patterened paper comes 4" x 6".  I simple scored the paper at 5 1/4" and then folded back the 3/4" flap and adhered it to the other side.  Thus forming a two section base layer for my card.  It's great because most of the time our patttered paper with have a coordinating color and pattern on the flip side that compliments each other, as this one did. Then I simple used the coordinating ribbon to create a band to blend the two section together.  You could even stop here with the design and just add sentiment tags when you needed cards in the future!

But since we were working toward creating to the sketch idea. I didn't stop there, I added the images from the Catching Butterflies set.  I stamped them first on a layer of vellum cardstock, as I wanted to create a semi-transparent layer behind the images.  In the end I decided to die-cut it into a circle instead of leaving it square.  Then I stamped and colored the images on Basic White cardstock.  Took a little time with my paper snips to trim each element out.  And to color as desired.

So, that's mostly it.  The full step-by-step instructions follow this post below.  So if you need more help to re-create, you check them out.

Here is the roll-call list for all the blog hoppers today.  Please leave us comments if you like our projects, or have been inspired by them in some way.  I am always learning new techniques and picking up new ideas for my own crafting projects.  From me you are going to visit Jill ChapmanJust click on this NEXT image below.

Okay, so I have a #simplestamping project for you today.  It actually is a very simple sketch that I have used many times for projects I have shared.

Here are the basic measures on this photo, so if you PIN all your favorites you can PIN this one for easy reference.

Here you can see I am featuring the FREE AS A BIRD stamp set images and I have colored them with my BLEND markers.  I embellished with the fun two-toned ribbon in Old Olive/Pretty Peacock, keeping the color choices to lots of coordinating greens.  The DSP panel is from the Painted Christmas DSP in the fall mini catalog.  Now it may have been marketed in a Holiday Themed paper pack, but this sample is good for pretty much and card and any season.  So don't forget to look at all the paper selections in your packages, you may find you can use them in more than just the themed type of cards.

Okay, so the supply list of products I used are listed below with the step by step instructions you can follow to make your own.

Please if you are shopping for supplies, I greatly appreciate your business.  As a thank you, I not only send you a hand-stamped card, but also include a tutorial and card kit for your crafting fun.  Plus as a VIP you are invited to join my FB Group where I share more projects with my customers.

Reflected In Nature - Breathe Deep

Reflected In Nature

Hello Stamping Friends,

Today I have this quick and easy Fun Fold card to share with all of you.  This fold has become very popular with the demonstrators I swap with and I'll tell you why... It's so easy!  You simply section off a portion of the front of the card, here it is 1 1/4" inches, but it could smaller or bigger.  Then you decorate the two parts. The mini scored section, then gets adhered to the inside panel and creates a booklet like fold instead of our standard fold.  It's easy, it's clever, and it's different.

Below you can find my list of supplies, and of course the directions to follow too.  At the very bottom is the link to the quick video tutorial for each step.  I know seeing is sometimes easier than reading instructions.

Please if you are shopping for supplies, I greatly appreciate your business.  As a thank you, I not only send you a hand-stamped card, but also include a tutorial and card kit for your crafting fun.  Plus as a VIP you are invited to join my FB Group where I share more projects with my customers.
