Piling It On for the November Pals Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Pile It On” – showcasing their card/project with layers of DSP and/or embellishments for any occasion. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Here’s my card:

I even piled it on for the inside.

Autumn Greetings and Quite Curvy

The Autumn Greetings stamp set has really grown on me. I loved the font right away, but I really didn’t like the big autumn floral stamp in the set. However, after creating this elegant fall card as a design team member for Make My Monday, I have changed my mind. You can see that card here. I decided that I would use the Gilded Autumn DSP, the Merry Merlot, and Soft Sea Foam 6″ x 6″ DSP.

Getting Curvy

  • The Soft Sea Foam base was trimmed to 8-1/2 inches by 5-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches.
  • The middle mat layer is the copper foil paper trimmed to 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches.
  • Next, I trimmed the Merry Merlot DSP to 4 inches by 3-1/2 inches. Then I used the Curvy Dies to crop the Merry Merlot DSP so that the highest side measures 3-1/2 inches.
  • I trimmed the Gilded Autumn DSP to 4 inches by 3 inches. This means that the Merry Merlot and the Gilded Autumn DSP overlaps.
  • I used the three mini punches that come with the Autumn Greetings bundle to punch out some of the leaves and acorn from the gilded DSP.
  • Then it was time to work on the curvy leaves part of the card. I stamped the leaves garland from the Quite Curvy stamp set using VersaMark on Soft Sea Foam DSP. The Stamp-aratus made stamping the leafy garland so much easier! While I had just re-nked my VersaMark, the Stamp-aratus made the stamp placement perfect .
  • After stamping, I covered the VersaMark copper embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool. Then I cropped the garland using a die from the Curvy Dies. The first time I cropped, my placement was off. Therefore, I cut off the part I messed up and used it for the bottom of the inside of the card. So, I piled it on for the inside as well.
  • I used mini-dimensionals to pop up the leafy garland and the mini-punched pieces.

Very Vanilla

  • Very Vanilla works perfectly with the Gilded Autumn DSP. I used a scrap piece for the sentiment panel, which is also embossed with heat set copper embossing powder.
  • I trimmed the vanilla cardstock to 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches for the inside. This wonderful sentiment from Autumn Greetings perfectly matches the Thanksgiving theme. As I said earlier, I used my oops garland on the bottom of the inside.
  • Originally, I didn’t have any ribbon chosen for this card. When trying to figure out where I needed the outside sentiment to live, I decided I did need a bit of something. Trial and error definitely came into play will trying to figure out what to use. Finally, I decided to use linen thread.
  • After adhering a piece of the Merry Merlot DSP to the Very Vanilla envelope flap, I had completed this card/envelope set.

Happy Halloween!

This is going to be extremely fast, short, and a tiny, little bit spooky. I’ve been making Halloween cards for my daughter, nieces, nephew, and great-nieces and nephew for a couple of months. However, it all came down to a rush in the end. Now that they are all on their way, with a treat inside, I thought I would share the ones not already posted on my blog.

The 6′ x 6′ Plaid Tidings DSP really helped tremendously with each of these cards and the coordinating envelope flaps.

Here are the remaining cards to be posted:

Using a mask helped make this card so much easier to make.
An Easter Bunny with a Halloween pumpkin??? It works when your 4 year old great-niece is obsessed with the Easter Bunny.
I really love the spider web corner stamp from the Festive Corners stamp set, but this is the only way I could figure out how to use it.
This card truly was a comedy of errors. I had the picture in my head, but really struggled to bring it to life. The little spider down in the corner is to cover just one of the problem areas.

Once in a Blue Moon

It seems fitting that in 2020 we have a Blue Moon, Halloween, and turning the clocks back one hour all at once.

Like I said at the top, short and sweet. I hope this weekend is kind to you. Stay safe, stay well, stay happy.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

I’d love to hear what you think, and greatly appreciate every comment.

Have a Peachy Day!

Rooted in Nature for Color Throwdown #614

Somewhere along the line the other day I saw a color challenge on one of the many challenges I follow. ctd614 colors for this week include purple, green, and khaki.

Here’s my card:

Here’s the challenge banner:

At first, I had pastels in mind, but I couldn’t get anything to work. Then I found this already stamped and cropped Mossy Meadow tree in the Rooted in Nature stamp set case. That’s how I came up with this color combination.

What I Did

  • I used the Rooted in Nature stamp set and coordinating dies for all the stamped images on the front of the card.
  • I stamped the cross-section of the tree three times without re-inking, starting in the bottom right-hand corner. The third stamp is just barely visible to the right of the tree, but that’s what I wanted.
  • I stamped the leaf trio and sentiment in Blackberry Bliss then cropped them out. The stitched rectangle die fits the sentiment perfectly.
  • I used the triple banner punch for both banners. Since I wanted a clean as possible card, I simply used a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock. The Mossy Meadow DSP provided the color for the thinner banner.
  • I knew I wanted to have some sort of natural twine on the card. After trial and error, I came up with just wrapping the linen thread around the DSP banner 5 times.
  • Dimensionals provide the depth for the tree, leaf trio, and sentiment. I used the multipurpose liquid adhesive for everything else. The use of this adhesive allows for a few seconds of wiggle time to get the position just right.

The Inside

Here’s the inside of the card:

  • I’ve had to create sympathy cards for the past few months, they are the difficult to create when needed. The Here’s a Card stamp set contains a sympathy stamp which coordinates with the sentiment on the front.
  • I second-generation stamped the cross-section of the tree using Soft Suede, just as on the front. Since I had a stamped and cropped leaf trio I adhered it on top of the cross-section.
  • I stamped the inside sentiment in Blackberry Bliss.
  • After adhering a piece of Soft Suede DSP to the envelope flap, I’d finished this sympathy card/envelope set.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

I’d love to hear what you think, and greatly appreciate every comment.

Have a Peachy Day!

It’s the Sentiment that Counts for the September Pals Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects where “It’s the Sentiment that Counts.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Here’s my card:

While I knew what sentiment I wanted to use, I struggled with the rest of the card. I wound up creating three cards. All three have the same sentiment, but different DSP and layouts.

Measurements:

  • I used Garden Green for the base, which measures 4-1/4 inches by 11 inches, scored at 5-1/2 inches. The score line created a tent card.
  • The Pear Pizazz middle mat cut to 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches, allowed the DSP to really stand out from the base of the card..
  • The Forever Fern DSP for the front of the card was trimmed to 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches.
  • I cropped the Forever Fern DSP for the sentiment block mat using the largest square die in the Stitched Shapes die set. While I had that DSP out, I trimmed a piece for the inside, bottom border to 1/2 inch by 5-1/4 inches.
  • I also trimmed a piece for the envelope flap to 2-1/2 inches by 6 inches. A number of the Forever Fern prints have a definite top and bottom, so be careful when trimming.
  • Next, I stamped the outside sentiment on Whisper White using Pretty Peacock and cropped it using the middle square from Stitched Shapes die set. I put dimensionals under the sentiment square.
  • While I had the Whisper White cardstock and Pretty Peacock ink pad out, I trimmed a piece of white cardstock to 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches for the inside of the card. Next, I stamped the inside sentiment, then adhered the DSP strip at the bottom.

Assembly

  • First, I adhered the inside white cardstock using some multipurpose adhesive.
  • Next, I adhered the Pear Pizazz mat to the Garden Green base, again using multipurpose adhesive.
  • Ater dry-fitting my sentiment block and mat, I thought I needed some separation between the card front and the mat. Therefore, I used the Pretty Peacock marker to outline the edges of the mat. Then, I adhered the DSP mat to the DSP front.
  • Then I wrapped a length of the Just Jade ribbon around the front DSP piece, going over the sentiment mat. I tied the ribbon in a simple square knot.
  • The next thing to do was, add the sentiment square, on dimensionals, to the DSP sentiment mat.
  • I trimmed the DSP on the envelope flap. With that, I’d finished this card/envelope set.

This past weekend wound up being a semi-easy peasy card weekend. Another easy-peasy card, posted yesterday, can be found here.

Smooth Sailing for PCC389, and Maybe Ornate Garden, with BLOG CANDY

The Paper Craft Crew 389’s challenge is a horizontal sketch for this week. I’ve actually created two cards for this challenge. The first one used the Ornate Garden and In Good Taste DSP. I really like the way it turned out. However, when I went back to the sketch, I realized I left out a panel. So, I went back this morning and created a new card for the sketch, this time using In Good Taste, the Neutrals 6 x 6 DSP, and Sail Away DSP. This masculine card does have the panel I missed the first time. Hopefully, by the time I finish this post I will have figured out which one I will post to the challenge.

Here are my cards:

Without the panel
With the extra panel

Here’s the challenge banner:

Measurements:

Since both cards are basically the same layout, all measurements are for both cards. I am just going to focus on the Smooth Sailing card for descriptive purposes since it has the extra panel.

  • I used Night of Navy for the card base and it measures 5-1/2 inches by 8-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches. This card is a tent card.
  • The in Good Taste background is trimmed to 5-3/8 inches by 4-1/8 inches.
  • Next, I trimmed the Smooth Sailing instrument DSP panel to 2-1/2 inches by 3-3/4 inches. In order to have this panel stand out, I used a piece of scrap Basic Black for a 2-5/8 inches by 3-7/8 inches for a mat.
  • While I had that DSP out, I trimmed a piece to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap.
  • In order to have some continuity between the panels, I trimmed the neutrals Night of Navy DSP to 2-1/2 inches to 4 inches. The height of this panel measures 2-1/2 inches, as does the width of the Smooth Sailing DSP. I also used this DSP, trimmed to 1/2 inch by 5-1/4 inches for the bottom of the inside card panel.

Stamping, Cropping, and Finishing

  • At this point, I trimmed white cardstock piece for the inside of the card to 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches, my standard measurement. Since I knew this would be a birthday card, I used the “With a great big wish for happiness” stamp from Sending You Thoughts.
  • Then, I needed three long tabs on the side. I thought the sentiments from the Special Someone stamp set would fit the bill perfectly. Using a piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock, I stamped all three sentiments.
  • Next, I stamped the anchor on the white cardstock, and on the lower, left, front corner of the envelope.
  • All the stamping for this card was done using the Momento Tuxedo black ink.
  • I used the Smooth Sailing anchor die to crop it out.
  • The actual birthday sentiment was cropped using the rectangle stitched die. I punched the first two sentiment tabs using the Classic Label punch. I’ll be using that punch with these sentiments a lot more since they fit so perfectly.
  • Finally, I assembled the card pieces. The only dimensionals used are under the “happy birthday” sentiment, under the anchor, and there’s one under the steering wheel to level it out with the anchor.
  • Since the sketch contains a ribbon, I used the Smooth Sailing bakers’s twine to loop around the steering wheel.
  • I just needed to adhere the inside panel and trim the envelope flap. With that, I’d completed this card/envelope set.

I think I have made up my mind. I think I am going to post the Ornate Garden card to the challenge. In order to post both of them, I’d have to have two different posts, so Ornate Garden it is…….unless I change my mind again.

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.

Inspiration from FMS447

Freshly Made Sketches is a clean and simple challenge. Sometimes, I can easily create a clean and simple card based on the challenge sketch. This week didn’t turn out that way. I started with the sketch as my inspiration, and I really did intend to create a clean and simple card.

Here’s my final card:

Here’s the challenge banner:

https://freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com/2020/08/theres-still-time-to-play-with-sketch_8.html

Golden Honey

This bundle and DSP, available during Sale-a-Bration, spoke to me as soon as I saw it. I made sure to get the bundle before it would’ve had a chance to sell out. In addition, I made sure I earned two packs of the DSP before it became unavailable. As I’ve said, I teach high school. Our school colors are black and gold, and the mascot is a hornet. Therefore, this group of products just begged me to purchase and/or earn as much as possible.

I created this card for a student who is facing a very lengthy recovery from an accident. Since she is able to have food delivered to her at the hospital, a friend and I thought we’d bring her some dinner and a Starbucks gift card for her parents. Of course, I won’t be allowed in the hospital, but one of her parents can meet me outside. Hopefully, you can see the challenge sketch inspiration in my card.

Measurements

  • The card base measures 4-1/4 inches by 11 inches, scored at 5-1/2 inches. It opens up.
  • I chose the black and gold striped DSP for the background. It measures 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches.
  • The gold and white DSP panel, bordered by a thin piece of black cardstock on both sides, measures a total of 2 inches by 5-3/8 inches.
  • I cropped a piece of white cardstock for the inside to 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches. I also trimmed a piece of the black and gold hexagon DSP to 1/2 inch by 5-1/4 inches. This strip was adhered to the right side of the white cardstock and coordinates with the DSP on the envelope flap.

All the Pieces and Assembly

  • The gold and white hexagon DSP seemed like a good choice for the beehive. I cropped that using the beehive die.
  • There are two honeycombs cropped from gold foil specialty DSP. I used one on the card and one on the front of the envelope.
  • I cropped the large “hornet” from the black and gold hexagon DSP. My only reason for this choice was because I wanted some sort of texture on the hornet. Next, I cropped a partial hornet from a scrap of gold specialty DSP. I trimmed off all parts of the gold hornet except for the center body part and the antenna. Since the body parts are small, I trimmed a very thin, short piece of black cardstock for the back of the hornet. This thin piece holds all the small pieces of gold together. Then I adhered the body of the black/gold hornet to the gold body.
  • Both the front and inside sentiments come from the Sending You Thoughts stamp set. The sentiments combine to say “If loving thoughts could heal…” “you’d be better already.” I thought these sentiments matched my thoughts perfectly. I stamped the sentiments using Momento Tuxedo Black ink pad.
  • I cropped the front sentiment using the stitched rectangle die set.
  • Of course, I had to use some sort of ribbon or thread. I chose the gold twine and wrapped it around just the white and gold panel three times. Then, I tied it in a square knot.
  • Amazingly, the only dimensionals I used pop up the body of the hornet.
  • In order to have the outside sentiment level, I used a large glue dot under the right side of the sentiment. I used multipurpose liquid glue for the left side.
  • After putting everything together, I’d finished this card/envelope set.
