Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge #13 – Birthday In Marina Mist Blues

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – Birthday In Marina Mist Blues

SSSC Header

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge!  We are so excited to be sharing this hop with you. The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!®  Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

Welcome welcome! We are back with our monthly challenge after a long summer break. Did you miss us?

This week sketch was designed by our lovely Mandy and it is…anything goes. I know! A nice little warm-up for us – thank you, Mandy.

I know you see more and more holidays related projects lately. But I decided to keep the warm summer days for a little bit longer. And what says ‘summer’ more than blue skies and butterflies?

stampin-up-butterfly-basics-meets-number-of-years-bundles

This is a birthday card for sweet ‘sixteen’ who loves blue. The base of my card is Marina Mist cardstock, standard A6 size. The first panel is a piece of Color Me Irresistible Specialty DSP that measures 5-5/8″x 3-7/8″. I chose to use white, embossed woodgrain pattern and gently sponged Marina Mist over my piece and adhere it to the base. Next, I cut a strip of Marina Mist cardstock, 1″ wide, and stamped little roses from Number Of Years Stamp Set all over the piece and adhere it across the sponged panel.

I die-cut two circles: large one from Whisper White ( I pierced it around the edge) and smaller one again from Color Me Irresistible Specialty DSP. I sponged this smaller one with Marina Mist. But this time, I’ve added lots of ink for really deep shade. I adhered smaller circle on top of the large one, off-setting it.

I stamped butterfly from Butterfly Basics on a piece of Whisper White in Marina Mist and die cut it using coordinating die. I also die cut larger, detailed butterfly from vellum, using the same die set. Next, I attached small butterfly on top of detailed one, with Silver Metallic Thread in between. I adhered them both to the circles using glue dots and attached the whole piece to the card base, off-setting it to the left.

stampin-up-butterfly-basics-meets-number-of-years

I stamped numbers 1 and 6, from Number of Years Stamp Set, in Marina Mist of course, and die-cut it with coordinating dies (I love this set!!!). Next, I stamped banner and word ‘birthday’ inside of the banner and die-cut it. For the word ‘happy’ I had to adjust it a little bit, and with help of masking, and partial die-cutting, I was able to create matching smaller banner. I attached the numbers and banners to the card base using dimensionals.

There’s no such a thing as bling-free teenage girl card, right? So my finish touch was to add a gentle shimmer to the butterfly, circle, and numbers with Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. I think it’s my first card ever where I’ve used one ink pad colour only. And to be honest I really like this monochromatic look.

And what do you think? Do you like monochromatic? Please let me know in comments below.

You Put The Merry In My Christmas

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – You Put The Merry In My Christmas

 

Hello, and welcome! Today I’ve got for you a couple of rather traditional Christmas cards. As you probably remember we are showcasing My Hero RMHC Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up!®

stampin-up-my-hero-rmhc-stamp-set-you-put-the-merry-in-my-christmas

Aren’t they lovely?! And they are so easy to make.

The card base is standard top folded A6 in Very Vanilla and I’ve used beautiful This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper for my panels. These were supposed to be simple, straightforward cards, but then again, I can’t make things that are too easy, can I?! So I decided to turn them into a split panels cards.

The panels I prepared earlier were 4 x 5-6/8″ in size. To create split panels, I cut them diagonally into 3 and removed the middle piece. I cut narrow strips of Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler cardstock and glued them underneath my split panels to accent the’split’. I adhered the panels to the base using snail adhesive.

stampin-up-my-hero-stamp-set-you-put-the-merry-in-my-christmas-cherry-cobbler

Using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig I stamped the sentiment in the ‘split’ area. Next, I created these uber cute mini Christmas trees. To make them, I die cut a scalloped circle from a sheet of the same DSP, just a different design. I cut it in half, fold it into ‘tree’ and secured my folds with mini glue dots.

stampin-up-my-hero-stamp-set-you-put-the-merry-in-my-christmas-cherry-cobbler-2

Because design on this paper is quite ‘busy’, you couldn’t really see the trees, once attached to the card. So I die cut 2 scalloped circles in Very Vanilla and run them through my big shot with Festive Embossing Folder.

stampin-up-my-hero-stamp-set-you-put-the-merry-in-my-christmas-garden-green

Next, I die cut 2 slightly bigger scalloped circles: one in Garden Green and one in Cherry Cobbler to create mats for Very Vanilla pieces. Adhered them together (de-bossed side up) and then added my trees on top.

First I thought to pop my circles up with dimensionals. But because these cards got quite of dimension anyway, I adhered them to the base with snail adhesive.

Super easy, aren’t they? I hope you like them. As always, if you wish to purchase any of the products I have used, simply click the images below to go directly to my online shop and don’t forget to enter the hostess code for the month of September RKW34AHD, to receive a gift from me.

Pootlers New Seasonal Catalogue Blog Hop – Thankful, Grateful, Blessed With Paisleys & Posies Bundle

pootler's blog hop

Thank you for joining us on another Pootlers Blog Hop! We’re showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® Autumn Winter Seasonal Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

If you arrived here from lovely Louise’s blog, thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoy seeing all these beautiful projects and inspiration and continue to hop on through to see what everyone has made.

For today’s project, I’ve been using new Paisleys & Posies Stamp Set with Paisley Framelits Dies, and these two are a part of beautiful Petals & Paisleys Product Suite. I used them to create a beautiful contemporary card and matching gift box.

I don’t know about you, but I just love paisley. It is such a trendy design right now, you can find it everywhere: from home decor, through fashion, art and more.

thankful-grateful-blessed-gift-set-with-paisleys-posies-bundle

For my card, I randomly stamped various images from Paisleys & Posies Stamp Set on a piece of Whisper White. It’s like creating your own DSP. To take off the guesswork, I’ve used the colours that coordinate with Petals & Paisleys Suite: Cajun Craze, Rich Razzleberry, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede and Night of Navy.  I adhered it to my card base (Cajun Craze) and added a layer of vellum on the top, to soften the bold colours. Next, I cut a strip of Whisper White and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set (love this font!), to the left in Cajun Craze. Backed it with a slightly wider piece of Cajun Craze cardstock, and adhered it to the card front. Using Paisley Framelits Dies, I die-cut two intricate leaves, one in Rich Razzleberry and one in Delightful Dijon, and add it to the panel. The final touch for the card was a tiny Rich Razzleberry bow I’ve made using one of the ribbons from new 3/8″ (1 cm) Ribbon Trio Pack.

thankful-grateful-blessed-card-with-paisleys-posies-bundle

Top tip 1: Glue dots are handy to adhere small elements like little bows. Top tip 2: There’s not such a thing as an invisible adhesive for when using vellum; be smart and hide adhesive under panels, die-cuts or embellishments. Savvy tip: To save the precious ribbon, tie a square knot straight from the spool.

For the gift box base, I’ve used, again, Cajun Craze cardstock. It’s really cute dinky little box, with the base being a 2-7/8 x 2-7/8″ square, and 1″ tall. Same as with the card, I created my own piece of DSP to decorate the box. Using dimensionals I slightly elevated the panel that goes on the top of the lid. But panels on the sides of my box are glued flat. Next, I’ve added a panel of vellum to the top of my box, followed by a little banner with a sentiment, and (again) leaves and a bow to match the card.

I don’t make boxes or gift sets too often, but I really like this one. I don’t know why. Perhaps for the autumnal colours and maybe for the paisley design. Whatever the reason, I hope you like it too.
