The Gang for GDP220

You may have seen the Gangs All Meer stamp set in the upcoming Sale-A-bration catalog.  I have seen several sneak Peeks of them.  So I am sharing one today.  It fit perfectly with my Global Design Project Case The Designer Challenge.

 

 

The Gangs All Meer makes an adorable card that any age recipient would love.  I know I would.  It makes me Smile!!  The Case The Designer Challenge (GDP220) is such a fun challenge.  Casing is Using the card for inspiration, colors, layout, and everything down to almost copying it.  Of course if you copy exactly please give credit to the person you copied.

In this instance, here is the card I Cased.

These challenges are a great way to get ideas when you cannot get anything to work from your brain to your hands.  I have that problem quite often and look back at challenges to get an idea.

I paired the stamped image with the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  I love the colors it contains.  Of Course my card base and layers are from that striped piece of DSP.  The ribbon is Calypso Coral Satin ribbon and is a great way to “ground” the framed focal point.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another new project.  And if you need a hint to someone for a gift for yourself, or if you have a stamping friend who is hard to by for, I Have Gift Certificates.  All you have to do is contact me and I will do it right away.

Go For It

I am not sure why masculine cards are , or at least seem to be, hard to make.   What if masculine cards are our everyday cards just in a different color?  I believe the project I have for you today is one of those cards. It does not scream masculine, but the colors I chose lean that direction.

 

 

This is a really quick card to make.  The longest time part is the embossed basket weave.  And now after my opening paragraph, I can see this done in lighter colors and perfect for anyone.

I am not sure why I got on the masculine talking point.  Maybe because this card was intended for a male???  Who knows with me.  But I hope I have given you food for thought.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I really appreciate it and hope you will return tomorrow for another new project.

Botanical CASE Catalog

Today is another of the Royal Challenge cards I made last week.  This one is a CASE of the catalog.  I chose to use the catalog card as the idea, but used everything different than they used.  A CASE can be just the idea, layout, or a pretty much copy.  I love that we SHARE EVERYTHING!

 

This is a CASE from page 41 of the Annual Catalog.  When I saw the DSP behind the cut out, I realized I had done a similar one recently.  But I love the look and I just happened to be playing with the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.  I knew I had to use it.  This gorgeous paper is simply above and beyond all the other beautiful paper Stampin’ Up! carries.

For my card, I used the Stitched Rectangle Framelit Dies and cut out Daffodil Delight.  I then stamped on the “frame” with Daffodil Delight Ink and a stamp from Botanical Bliss stamp set.  I also die cut the Garden Green stems using the Botanical Tags Dies.  The sentiment and flower is from Botanical Bliss as well.  It is stamped and then punched with the Darling Label punch.  I love this almost square punch.  It is the only one that is not more oval shaped!

Thank you so much for visiting today.  I will have another new project to share with you tomorrow.

Daisy Smiles

I have a very Happy card to share today.  At least I believe it is one that will make you SMILE!  I also added a technique that is not as often used as most.

 

I believe daisies are just Happy Flowers.  They seem to jump off of the card here.  I used both the old Daisy Punch and NEW Medium daisy punch today.  Each is two punched out flowers layered on top of each other.  I also added the Perennial Essence Floral Center to each flower.

The background is Direct Ink To Paper.  I simply opened the ink pad and drug it across the face of the Whisper White card stock.  When I have shared this technique before, it was done on Glossy card stock. This time I used just regular Whisper White, not even the Thick version.

The two colors I used are Pretty Peacock on the bottom and Seaside Spray on the upper section.  I went over it a second time in spots where I had lifted a tad early.  I like the light and dark that you get in doing this technique.  You do not want to press too hard.

The leaves are from the Daisy Lane Stamp set and are stamped in Granny Apple Green.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I love one stamp set cards!!  I stamped the Smile on a scrap of card stock and then only punched one end with the Pretty Label Punch.  I accomplished this by placing the piece of card stock inside the cutting area from the back.  It was smaller than the punch area, so it was easy to line up top and bottom and then just punch the one end.  I love playing with our punches to get different looks!

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Card base is 11 X 4 1/4
  • Layer is 5 3/8 X 4 1/8
  • Center layer is 3 7/8 X 3 3/8
  • White Center is 3 3/4 X 3 1/4

Sailing Congratulations

 

The new Sailing Home stamp set is one of my favorites.  It has great details in the stamps and the matching dies are awesome!  A side note is that the lighthouse die for Sailing Home will also fit the lighthouse in High Tide.  I love double duty products.

 

 

After saying how nice the dies are, I did not use them for the project.  Oops!!  However, I did use the gorgeous Designer Series Paper this suite has.  All of the products in the suite are wonderful.  I have several more ideas with this suite of products.

For today’s card, I stamped the lighthouse and the birds using Gray Granite Ink.  I know it looks a little on the brown side, but I really did use the gray.  I think it changes colors a bit.  Plus my photo seems a tad dark.  The base and layer behind the lighthouse are Night of Navy.

To add the sentiment, I decided I wanted it to look like a tag.  The Congrats is part of the stamp set and I love the font used for it.  I decided to punch it out with the Classic Label Punch.  To make the short tag from the longer punch was very easy.  I stamped and punched with the sentiment at one end of the punch.  I then took the punched label and fed it back into the punch from the cutting area, not the outside like you would to make the original punch.  Because the height is already cut, it makes it fairly simple to get it lined us straight.  And now you have a half size Classic Label.

I added the Night of Navy Baker’s Twine as “rope” for the nautical card.  I wrapped it around and taped it on the back.  I then cut a small strip to tie around the front and tied a knot.  To attach the sentiment, I simple added a glue dot under the end and layer it just underneath the baker’s twine.  I left the end not attached.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I appreciate it and hope you will return tomorrow.  The supply list is at the bottom of the page.

Winds of Change for June InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around NEW. With the launch of Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Annual Catalog, NEW gives us the opportunity to showcase new products and play with new colors. There are also new occasions (babies, weddings, graduations) to celebrate, so you are going to see a variety of projects in this hop. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My card reflects two of the NEW theme ideas.  I am showcasing a NEW stamp set, Winds of Change.  I looked at this set when I received my catalog and it was a must have.  As you know, I love to color with the Stampin’ Blends, and this set is perfect for coloring.  I also LOVE to travel.  Next month I am going on another Viking River Boat Cruise.  And we begin in Amsterdam!  I have never been to Amsterdam before, so this is my second NEW for the theme.  I am so excited about the trip, and am equally excited to share my card idea with you.

 

 

Even the sentiment on the card goes along with the theme!  I googled Amsterdam and looked at all of the windmills for some color inspiration.  They are typically brownish, but the blades can be different colors. I added just a touch of the Granny Apple Green to my blades to match the bottom section of the windmill building.

All of the pictures I saw were in vibrant colors, so that is what I went with.  I always prefer a mix of colors in flowers,  so I mixed my tulips and then added a whimsical touch with the butterfly.  The butterfly is from the Hold On To Hope stamp set and the Cross of Hope Framelits.  I colored it with Granny Apple and Daffodil Delight markers then die cut it.

The sentiment is done with my favorite new technique.  I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits and cut to fit the size I needed.  (As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, there are several videos out there on how to do this little trick).
