Christmas Bells for ctd619 and PP517

Sundays are usually the day during which I am supposed to be working on lesson plans. I did get that done, but I also got to relax by creating two cards. This card meets Color Throwdown #619 for aqua, red, and silver, which ends tomorrow at 6 pm.. It also meets The Paper Players #517 for a clean-and-simple holiday card.

Without further ado, here’s my card:

Here are the ctd619 and PPT517 challenge banners:

Measurements and More

  • I used Real Red for the card base, trimmed to 5-1/2 inches by 8-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches.
  • The Pool Party mat is 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches. I cropped the square out of the middle of the mat layer using the largest Stitched Shapes square.
  • I used two pieces of Whisper White, one for the inside and one for the outside. Before trimming the outside piece, I ran it through the Big Shot using the brick and mortar 3D embossing folder. Then I trimmed it to 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches, which is the same size as the inside piece.
  • A third piece of white cardstock was enough to stamp the bells and the sentiment. I used Versamark to stamp the bells using my Stamp-aratus, then added silver embossing powder and heat set it. The Stamp-aratus also helped trememdously when I stamped the sentiment in Real Red. Then I added clear embossing powder and heat set the sentiment. I trimmed the sentiment block to 2-1/4 inches square.
  • By the way — do you recognize the sentiment on the front? Yes, it’s from It’s a Wonderful Life and is just one of four movie quotes in the Christmas Means More stamp set.

Elements

  • The Sounds of the Seasons die set contains a die for the single bell. However, I had to fussy cut the pair of bells, which wasn’t difficult at all and only took a few minutes.
  • I used the Pool Party sheer ribbon to thread through the holes I made in the bell rings.
  • Next, I put dimensionals under the sentiment block and the bells. I had to be careful with the placement under the pair of bells so it would overlap the sentiment block. There’s multipurpose liquid adhesive in the corner of the sentiment block to adhere the bells.
  • After putting everything together on the front, I decided that it needed something, but I had to keep it clean and simple. Therefore, I used the clear Wink of Stella pen to paint random bricks.
  • There are times that i don’t want a lot of white space on the inside of the card, and this was one of those times. I used the snowflakes, stamped in Pool Party, from Frosted Foliage to form a frame around the Merry Christmas sentiment on the inside. The sentiment is stamped in Real Red to coordinate with the front sentiment.
  • Next, I stamped some Pool Party snowflakes on the front, bottom, left corner of the envelope. I also stamped snowflakes on the envelope flap.
  • With that, I’d finished this card/envelope set.

Autumn Greetings for FMS452 and ctd610

Freshly Made Sketches 452 and Color Throwdown 610 came together in this card. I took advantage of all the white space for FMS610, and the ctd610 colors added interest and movement.

Here’s my card:

Here are the challenge banners:

Measurements

  • I chose Cherry Cobbler, Bumblebee, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede for the autumn colors. I couldn’t figure out whether the yellow-ish option had more yellow or pumpkin color so I used both. Might not really meet the color challenge, but it’s my solution.
  • First, I decided to use Bumblebee for the base of the card. The cardstock measures 4-1/4 inches by 11 inches, scored at 5-1/2 inches to create a tent card.
  • The first mat of Soft Suede measures 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches.
  • I trimmed two pieces of Whisper White, one for the front and one for the inside. Both pieces measure 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches.

#simplestamping

  • I used the Forever Fern stamp set to stamp the diagonally opposite corners. The splatter stamp from this set added a bit more texture to the corners. Then, I added just one splatter in the opposite corners just so it wasn’t quite so stark.
  • After stamping the corners, I needed to stamp the sentiment from Autumn Greetings in Soft Suede. Originally, I was going to stamp the greeting on a white oval and border it with a bit larger Soft Suede oval. However, I am thrilled that I thought about the double-time stamping option instead.
  • After cropping the stitched oval, I decided that I would just create an outline on the outside of the oval. To accomplish this, I used the Soft Suede marker to create the edge.
  • On the inside, I stamped the Cherry Cobbler and Bumblebee leaf stems and added one splatter stamp in each of the four corners.
  • The inside sentiment is also from the Autumn Greetings stamp set.

Time to finish the card

  • I used the multipurpose glue to adhere everything except the sentiment oval. Using dimensionals under the sentiment added a bit of height.
  • Finally, I needed to take care of decorating the envelope. Instead of DSP on the envelope flap, I used the Forever Fern to stamp the flap and on the front of the card.
  • With that, I’d finished this card/envelope set.

#GDP250 and ctd603 Two-fer with a Split Card

It’s true, another Forever Fern card for this two-fer. The Color Throwdown #603 challenge calls for green, orange, and yellow. I used Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight. When paired with the Global Design Project #250 sketch challenge the colors create a completely different look to the Forever Fern stamps. Since I used the split card technique, I have a mirror image card I can use another day in another way.

Here’s my card:

Here are the challenge banners:

This technique is one of the easiest ways to get two cards out of one stamping time. Start with 1/2 sheet of cardstock, in this case I used white cardstock cut to 5-1/2 inches by 8-1/2 inches. I very, very lightly scored this piece at 4-1/4 inches just enough to see the exact middle of the cardstock. Then, I started stamping. When you get a design with which you are happy, simply cut on the 4-1/4 inch line. Ta-da! Two card fronts. I keep my other half of the card front in the back sleeve on the stamp set.

I took the picture on the left after I trimmed the piece on the right for the card front, which explains why the green leaves are off. The picture on the right shows how snug the other half of the card fits in the back sleeve of the stamp case.

Split Card Technique: Measurements

The Garden Green card base measures 5-1/2 inches by 8-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches.

I used a piece of the 2020 Garden Green 6 x 6 DSP for the background of the card. This piece measures 4-1/4 inches by 5-1/2 inches. When picking the DSP patterns for both the green and orange mats, I decided I needed very subtle patterns so they wouldn’t clash with the Forever Fern stamped images.

While I originally thought I’d use Daffodil Delight DSP for the tilted DSP mat, I ended up using Pumpkin Pie. I wanted that tilted mat to pop off the green background mat, and the Pumpkin Pie did that much more than the yellow. The Pumpkin Pie DSP is cut to 4-7/8 inches by 3-7/8 inches.

Finally, I trimmed the white stamped cardstock to 4-78 inches by 3-7/8 inches for the outside. I also cut a piece of white for the inside of the card to 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches.

While I was using the paper trimmer, I cut a piece of the Pumpkin Pie DSP to 6 inches by 2-5/8 inches for the envelope flap.

Split Card Technique: Directions

I wanted the green for the largest stamp because the leaves spread out, but the dark color would be prominent. Daffodil Delight was used on the seven leaf stamp. I used Pumpkin Pie for the round berries/cotton pod looking stamp.

  • Starting with the green stamp, I alternated stamping it on the right and left of my center line score. I thought it was easier to work from the bottom up along the center line. I added the all the stamps along the bottom after I’d stamped everything else.
  • Next, I stamped the yellow leaves. I really tried to fill in-between the green sprays of leaves going up and out from the center line.
  • Then, I stamped the Pumpkin Pie round pods. Once again, I tried to have them go up the center, but also spray in towards the center of the cardstock.
  • Finally, I went back and filled in the stamps along the bottom of the card so they would all surround the sentiment.
  • I wanted to have one of each color stamp on the front, bottom left corner of the envelope, so I stamped that while I had the stamps and ink pads out.
  • The white inside panel has one of each of the colored stamps in the bottom right-hand corner.
  • I used the large THANK YOU from the Ornate Thanks stamp set for the sentiment. Using my Stamparatus made masking and placing the two parts of the stamp much, much easier.
  • The inside sentiment, from the bottom of my heart, also from Ornate Thanks, is stamped in the middle of the white cardstock inside panel.
Cropping and Assembly
  • I cropped the sentiment panel using a rectangle stitched die. Just like the sentiment, I played around with the size of the die but didn’t take pictures as I did it. Explaining the easy process in writing really needs accompanying pictures. Next time I’ll remember. I put dimensionals under the sentiment panel.
  • The bold sentiment and colors needed a bold mat. I used a Stitched So Sweetly die and cropped it from the Garden Green DSP. It was a stroke of genius luck that the cropped sentiment rectangle fit perfectly on the rectangle of the mat. I also put dimensionals under the mat.
  • Just a note: I cropped the Stitched So Sweetly mat from the DSP I used for the background of the card. Since no one can see the whole center section of that DSP, there’s no reason not to use it for the sentiment mat.
  • Finally, I assembled all the elements of the card using the multipurpose liquid adhesive for the mats and layers. Even with a double layer of dimensionals on the sentiment, it will still fit in a medium SU! envelope for the standard amount of postage.
  • After adhering and trimming the DSP to the envelope flap, I had completed this coordinated card/envelope set.

Poppies, a Birthday, and ctd601

The Color Throwdown #601 challenge for this week includes the generic colors orange, green, pink, and burgundy. Part of what I really enjoy with the ctd challenges is that the colors are generic. Therefore, there’s so much variety of colors used in the gallery cards. I chose Terracotta Tile, Just Jade, Petal Pink, and Merry Merlot.

Here’s my card:

Here’s the challenge banner:

Field of Poppies

Once I had my color choices, the rest of the card just fell into place. I really like this field of poppies stamp but knew I didn’t want to just have it at the bottom of the card. Therefore, I grabbed the Flowers for Every Season DSP and pulled the vine pattern and trimmed it down to 2 inches high.

I’d already stamped the poppies at the bottom of a piece of white cardstock, which explains how I knew I needed something else on the bottom.

The Merry Merlot base is 4-1/4 inches x 5-1/2 inches. I stepped down the Just Jade mat to 4-1/8 inches x 5-3/8 inches. I trimmed the Just Jade DSP to 2 inches x 4-1/8 inches. The white DSP is trimmed to 4 inches x 3-1/4 inches, which would give me just enough to overlap the DSP.

I stamped the poppie fields from Painted Poppies twice across the white cardstock using Momemto Tuxedo Black ink and then let it completely dry before I started coloring. I used the Terracotta Tile marker to control the bleeding.

Then, I needed to make a decision about some sort of texture on the white cardstock. At first I thought I would dry emboss it, but then changed my mind. I wound up using the splotch stamp from the Forever Fern to stamp the Petal Pink. After inking the splotch, I stamped it three times before re-inking. The different hues create depth and texture on the card.

Putting the Card Together

Next, I started putting the card together, and started with the white cardstock and DSP. Once I’d adhered those two pieces together, I moved onto the ribbon.

Since I am incredibly bow-challenged right now, I only trusted myself to tie a square knot. Therefore, I wrapped the Petal Pink organdy striped ribbon around the Just Jade base and simply tied it. I actually like that because the knot doesn’t overwhelm the bottom of the card.

I am all about saving cardstock when I can. Therefore, I cropped the scalloped circle for the sentiment from the Merry Merlot bottom layer, before adhering it of course. The sentiment on the front and inside of the card came from the SAB Sending You Thoughts stamp set. I used Merry Merlot to stamp the front and inside sentiments on white. Then, I cropped the sentiment using the medium circle from the Stitched Shapes die set. I kept the retired tiny paperclips from a couple of years ago and used that to help attach the sentiment to the top of the DSP. Multipurpose liquid adhesive is keeping the sentiment layer at the angle I wanted.

I adhered the front of the card to the Just Jade layer, and then adhered that to the Merry Merlot. Then I, attached all the layers to the front of the white card base. I’d stamped the inside sentiment at the same time I stamped the front. To add interest, I stamped part of the poppy field on the bottom corner of the inside. After letting it completely dry, I colored those poppies in Terracotta Tile as well.

Final Touches

As long as I was already coloring, I stamped some of the poppies on the bottom left corner of the front of the envelope. They also were colored in Terracotta Tile.

I used a 2-5/8 inch x 6 inch piece of the vine DSP to cover the flap of the envelope. Usually, at this point, I would consider myself finished. However, the more I looked at the front of the card, the more I thought I needed something else.

I’ve used the fine tip glue pen to “color” the poppies on the front of the card. The trick with that is to let the glue really, really dry completely before touching it. Therefore, I left it on my desk and went to bed.

Here’s are close-ups of the now “enameled” poppies:

When I first saw the four colors, I really thought they wouldn’t work together. However, work together they did.

Make My Monday #125 and ctd598 – Two Cards, Circle Stencils

Welcome to the Make My Monday challenge # 125, which is all about using stencils. Until very recently, I didn’t even realize that I only have the hearts and stars Stampin’ Up! stencils, which retired a few years ago. The stars stencil would have been very helpful when trying to create this card for the InKing Royalty blog hop last week. Anyway, I really struggled with a stencil card and have two of the four cards I started ready to share with you today.

Make My Monday Challenge #125

Here’s my card:

This challenge requires stencils. After creating the ctd#598 card described below, I again used the negative space from the largest circle die in the Layering Circles die set. This time, I sponged the inner part of the circle using Pear Pizazz. When I started dry-fitting the cropped pieces over the sponged circle, I decided that I needed more stenciled images. Therefore, I used the negative space around the Forever Fern leave dies. So, I sponged a Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce leaves in three places around the circle.

While I was dry-fitting pieces, I realized the card needed ribbon. Therefore, I added the Mint Macaron ribbon around the center of the card, and all the layers went under that ribbon. I used my Xyron to get adhesive on the back of the vellum leaves cropped from the same die set. Looking back, I probably shouldn’t have done that. Looking back, I also decided that I probably should have added texture to the white cardstock. Then, I just needed to add the various layers and the sentiment.

I left the inside blank so a personalized note could be written on the inside. Finally, I added a piece of the Forever Greenery DSP to the envelope flap, which finished off this card/envelope set.

Color Throwdown challenge # 598

The colors for the Color Throwdown challenge #598 includes white, gold, pink, and aqua. I used these colors with the negative part of three sizes of circle punches.

Here’s that card:

Although I later realized I didn’t need to, I first masked off the center of the front of the card. Since I decided to add a strip of Whisper White to the middle of the card I really didn’t need to mask it off, but it helped figuring out the stenciling of the negative circle spaces.

What I Did:

After masking the center, I used the three negative circle stencils and sponges to sponge in a variety of circle sizes using Magenta Madness, Balmy Blue and the Delicata Gold ink pad. Sponging the gold required many layers of sponging just to get the circles I have on the card. Then, I stamped another circle of gold on a piece of scrap white and stamped it with the heart balloon stamp from the Special Someone stamp set.

Next, I stamped the raccoon and balloon string in Momento Tuxedo black on more scraps of white cardstock. Using the Special Day dies, I cropped the raccoon, heart balloon, and string pieces.

The next thing I did was to crop two pieces of Balmy Blue 6 x 6 DSP for the grass. The first piece is adhered directly onto the middle white section piece of cardstock. Then I adhered the raccoon to the first piece of DSP and added dimensionals to the second piece of grass. The dimensionals allowed me to pop up the second piece of grass so it appears that the raccoon is standing in the grass.

A mini-dimensional pops up the heart balloon. Next, I adhered the string to the raccoon and the balloon using liquid adhesive.

I used the Special Someone stamp set for the sentiments on the front of the card. Then, I layered the card front on the same Balmy Blue DSP, and used Magenta Madness for the bottom mat.

The Inside

The card base is white, as is the mat layer I trimmed for the inside. In order to create some border between the two layers of white, I used the Magenta Madness marker to outline the inside layer of white. I also stamped the raccoon on the inside with sentiments from the Sending You Thoughts stamp set.

After stamping the raccoon on the front bottom corner of the envelope, I adhered a piece of the Balmy Blue DSP to the flap. With that, I’d completed this card and envelope set.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. I’d also love to hear what you think, and greatly appreciate every comment.

ctd595 and #GDP242 Combine for a Two-fer

I really enjoy pairing a sketch challenge with a color challenge. But, I have to say that my final card is nothing like what I thought I would create.

Here’s my card:

Here are the two challenge banners:

Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, and Whisper White

Since Color Throwdown already picked the three colors, I just had to chose a shade of turquoise. The color combination of Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, and Whisper White always seemed like a classic color combo, so my colors were set.

Like I said, the resulting card doesn’t resemble the card I started to create. However, I like the clean and simple outcome. I used Bermuda Bay for the base of the card. The bottom layer of the card front is Basic Black, with a layer of Bermuda Bay on top of that. Whisper White cardstock provides a very clean top layer. I used white Stampin’ Powder to emboss the sentiment from the Sending You Thoughts cling stamp set.

I created the Bermuda Bay center circle using a circle cropped from an uh-oh envelope and the negative over the white cardstock. Using my sponge brayer and the Bermuda Bay ink pad, I started inking the circle. I kept going around and around in a circular motion until I had a shaded circle I liked. While you can’t see it because of the sentiment banner, the center of the circle is lighter than the outside. The black scalloped border comes from a cropped inner circle and scalloped outer circle using the layering circles die set. The card I originally set out to create contained this center circle and scalloped frame.

I Wasn’t Going to do It, But I Did…

The Celebrate Sunflowers bundle came in handy for this card as well, as much as I thought I need to do something without using it. For this card, I only used the two leaves dies. I cropped three of the double leaf stem from vellum and three from Bermuda Bay. Next, I arranged them in a way that I thought would work and adhered them all down using the multipurpose liquid glue.

Using the triple banner punch, I punched out chevron ends of the black and DSP strips for the sentiment banner. If you don’t have this punch, you can always snip the chevrons. I’m just happier if I can get symmetrical ends.

The banner for the GDP challenge includes some sort of layer on the top and bottom of this horizontal card. I hope that the layers of black and Bermuda Bay kind of sort of fullfill that part of the sketch. The whole time I worked on this card, I kept trying different borders and nothing seemed to work. I finally decided that I would go with clean and simple and just move on.

After I cut a white inside layer for the card, I stamped “with a great big wish for happiness” also from Sending You Thoughts.

The only thing left was to trim down a piece of the Bermuda Bay 6 x 6 DSP for the envelope flap and this card/envelope coordinating set was finished.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. I’d love to hear what you think, and greatly appreciate every comment.
