Paper Craft Crew Challenge - PCC499


Welcome to this weeks Paper Craft Crew Challenge!

This week we have a vertical Sketch challenge, #PCC499,  for you to play with. I have been spending
some time playing with the new Country Floral Lane Suite Collection. This collection includes the Country Bouquet Bundle (the Country Bouquet Stamp Set + the Country Bouquet Punch), the Real Red & Burlap Ribbon Combo Pack, the Pastel Adhesive-backed Sequins, The Country Gingham 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (DSP) & the Country Floral Lane 12" x 12" DSP. It is so nice, when you love all of the products in a suite collection, to have one order number for the entire suite. 

When I saw this sketch I knew that the Two-Step heart stamps would be about the same size as the heart pictured in this sketch. So I followed the sketch as is. My card front from the gorgeous County Gingham DSP, I embossed a piece of Basic White Cardstock with the New Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder. Then I die cut the embossed piece with the 3" x 4 3/8" Stitched Rectangles Dies ( I shortened this to about 4 1/8"). I matted the embossed stitched layer onto a some Sweet Sorbet Cardstock. I popped up the assembled embossed stitched layers on the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. The large heart has been stamped 1st with Mint Macron Ink using my Stamparatus. Then I stamped the second stamp with Sweet Sorbet Ink. This stamp was easy to line up on the Stamparatus. Using a Sponge Dauber and Sweet Sorbet Ink I sponged the edges of the heart. I added Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the heart. The Mint Macron stitched fishtailed banner & the sentiment banner have been die cut with the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the Mint Macron banner to the embossed  layer with Liquid Glue. Then I added the Heart with the Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment with Sweet Sorbet Ink on the little Basic white stitched banner. This has been matted onto a little Sweet Sorbet Cardstock rectangle. and finally I finished the card front with a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels. I adhered the completed card front to the Basic White Thick Cardstock card base with Liquid Glue.

New at SU! - Gift Tags For The Holidays

 


Welcome to the December New at SU! Blog Hop!


Our theme for this month is Terrific Tags. I am sharing some Christmas tags that I made using the Celebrate With Tags Bundle which includes the Celebrate With Tags Stamp Set & the coordinating Celebrations Tag Dies. The photo containing 3 tags are also gift card holders. Just untie the bows slip the gift card inside and tie the ribbon on your package for a little extra surprise. I paired these tags with the Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP). There are stamps and dies for birthdays and Valentines Day included in this bundle as well. Unfortunately both of these items have sold out. I want to pass on a tip. If you are using DSP for these gift tags, fold gently along the scored lines. I didn’t use a bone folder on these. finger folding in the right direction works just fine. I used Real Red Cardstock for my tags and I carefully  made my folds backwards 1st and then folded them in the right direction. The fold line the die makes are deep and can cause some cardstock to crack. By folding them backwards 1st, if there was any cracking it was on that side and not on the side we want to see. I hope that makes sense. I used the stitched rectangle die from the Merriest Frames Dies to die cut my DSP, I did have to extend the die cut a bit.

Once you click on the photos you should be able to see the directions better.

I made one more tag using one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies on the tag front die cut. I had die cut 2 of the tag fronts to create a shaker tag using the Snowman Magic Bundle (sold out). I wanted to make this tag for my Great Grand Daughter. She is 9 years old and can still have fun with something like this. 


I hope you have enjoyed this stop along our blog hop. Now I am sending you on to your next blog stop.

Paper Craft Crew Challenge - PCC497

-Welcome to this weeks Paper Craft Crew Challenge!

This week we are Casing the Design Team. CASing means to Copy And Share Everything. I have chosen
to case a Fun Fold Terri Walker made (click on Terri's name to see her blog post). This is  new Fun Fold for me, so I really enjoyed making this. I made mine a gift card holder. I used the Sentimental Park Bundle (available the 5th of January) which is part of the Regency Park Suite Collection. The Sentimental Park Bundle has some great sentiments a well as some very fun dies to play with. For the sentiment label on the card front I have die cut the label twice, one using the Regency Park Designer Series Paper (DSP) and one using Basic White Cardstock. I fussy cut around the flowers on the Basic White label an adhered them to the DSP label. Then to add a little more dimension I die cut the some  more of the little flowers available in the Sentimental Park Dies and adhered them to the label. The sentiment has been heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. I also did some emboss resist on the card front. I heat embossed the detail flower stamp a few times on the Basic white card front and used a blending brush with Balmy Blue Ink in the flower areas only. Then took a paper towel to the embossed flowers, rubbing gently to remove the ink from the embossed image. I did create a rectangle template of this label so that I could use my Stamparatus to stamp my sentiment. The card front is matted onto a Mango Melody mat. The card base and the Fun Fold base are Balmy Blue Cardstock. I also used the Regency Park DSP on the card base.
The next panel of this fun fold holds the birthday sentiment. I die cut the sentiment and a mat with another one of the Sentimental Park Dies. The final panel of this Fun Fold is the gift card holder. I used the Regency Park DSP for this layer also adhering it with some Tear & Tape Adhesive. I added a couple of the Adhesive Backed Milky Dots to the larger flowers on the card front.

I hope you liked my take on Terri's Fun Fold. You too, can also participate in this fun weekly challenge. You can case one of the designers and post it to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge Blog. We can't wait to see what you will create.

Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop - Sounds of the Season

 


Welcome to December's Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop!

Our theme for this month is Sounds Of The Season. the very first thing that came to my mind was a card that I had cased out of the Jul-Dec Mini Catalog on page 28.


The song is Dashing Through The Snow, and the sentiment is straight out of the song. If you follow my blog you will have seen the other card I made with the Christmas Barn Bundle. I CASEd this card without any editing. It was perfect as is. I bought this bundle for myself. And these cards will go to a family member. I may even frame them. The "frame" on this card is a die from the Snowman Magic Bundle and is die cut from the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP). The background is from the Snowy White Velvet Sheets and yes I stamped the trail directly on the velvet. The treesWere stamped with Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz & Early Espresso Inks. I applied the color to the stamp with Sponge Daubers and a Stampin' Write Marker, huffed on the stamp and then stamped it on Basic White Cardstock. The rest of the images were colored with my Stampin' Blends. 

I hope you enjoyed my take on the Sounds of the Seasons theme. Now I'm sending you on to your next stop along our blog hop.
