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.

Cow Love

I will say up front that I made this card a few days ago.  I was so surprised when I checked my Stampin’ Up! Up-Line Brian King’s blog yesterday and saw a very similar card.  I dd not want you , or him, to think I copied his card.  Although it is an acceptable practice and is called CASEing.

Anyway, I made today’s card in response to the Royal Challenge we are doing on our Team Facebook page while Brian is off on the SU Incentive Trip.  I also sent it the next day to a couple I met in my travels that own a cattle ranch.  I thought of them as soon as I saw this awesome Over The Moon stamp set.

 

 

I believe I have said it before, but I think these cows are adorable.  I paired the High Tide set with the cow to get the dirt and grass for the field.

The beautiful color I chose is the new In Color Rococo Rose.  I think the name is sweet as is the color.  The plaid is from the 2019-2021 In Color Paper Stack of 6X6 DSP.  I gave it a small border of white to mimic the white showing with the cow.

The cow is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored with Stampin’ Blends.  It was die cut with the Layering Ovals Dies and backed with a scallop die from the Layering Ovals.

Here is a view of the inside and the envelope.  I was going cow crazy on this card!

 

 

Thank you for visiting today!  I really do appreciate it and hope you will return on Monday for more new projects.

Stampin’ Up! Mini Shipping Box

I skipped the Royal Challenge yesterday due to the Pals Blog Hop.  If you did not go through the Hop, I hope you will do so.  There are some great projects.  Today the Royal Challenge is “Not A Card”.  I love 3D projects, but am not good and creating my own.  For the one today I cheated a bit.  Not Really!!  I created a table centerpiece using the new, and super cute, Mini Shipping Boxes that are in the catalog.  I hope you will like it.

 

 

I got the idea from the Pop Up Box cards.  I created this using the same idea of the cross pieces as used on the pop up box card,  and then adhering my flowers to those.  It isn’t super good from top view, but you can see the method I used.

 

 

I did not add filler to the bottom of the box so that you could see my construction.  If this were my table decoration, I would put some green tissue paper in the bottom to help blend the cross pieces that hold the flowers.

I used both of the Daisy punches and punched in Daffodil Delight and the Perennial Essence Vellum.  The stems and leaves are punched using dies from the Bouquet Bunch Dies.  The tag is from that die set as well.  The sentiment on the tag is from Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  All of my adhering besides the green strips in the box are done with glue dots.  Glue Dots are my heroes!!

MEASUREMENTS:

For the cross pieces inside the box, the box is 4″ wide.  I cut three strips 5 X 3/4 and scored each end at 1/2″.  I then folded on the score lines and used Tear & Tape to adhere those to the box inside.  Then all of the flowers stems are adhered to those pieces with glue dots.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you liked seeing something a bit different today.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the post.

Pals July Blog Hop – Mixing It Up

 

Welcome to the Pals’ July  Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects that are “Mixing It Up” –  adding texture that will really take your projects up a notch – or two! You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I Have gone with the more normal methods of adding texture, with only a small twist to it.  The project did not turn out just as I anticipated but sometimes that is ok.

My aim was to give this card a vintage look.  I totally adore the Tin Tile Embossing Folder and have since it debuted.  I gave it just a bit of a twist by embossing a piece of newsprint designer series paper from the Come Sail Way Designer Series Paper pack.  I then used a sponge to add Soft Suede Ink onto the embossed paper for more of the “vintage” look.

I combined a couple of stamp sets for my focal stamped image.  The pitcher is from Country Home stamp set and the flowers are from Vibrant Vases.  I wanted a simpler flower than what is included in the Country Home set, even though I totally adore those flowers.

I wanted a bright color to pair with the darkness of the background.  I found what I wanted in the Terracotta Tile card stock and Ink.  Normally it is not really very bright.  But pairing it with the brown made it Pop!!  Yay!!

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, August 14, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Special Occasions” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

Thank you for stopping by.  All of the supplies I used are at the bottom of the page.

Sailing with Pigment Ink

The title of today’s challenge is Mixed Media.  I believe that can be a variety of things.  To me, it means different techniques, and layers.  So I have a couple of layers and a little different technique.

 

 

I will confess up front that I used the old group of pigment colors and not the new ones.  I thought they were the same just in different packaging.  Silly me!!!  Oh Well!  My bit of an odd “technique” could also be called “saving a mess!”  I used Shimmery White card stock and wet it thoroughly with an aqua painter.  I then sprinkled the pigment powder on the wet surface.  Unfortunately, I had been overzealous with the water!!  It was in little puddles.  So I took two different regular white card stock pieces that were handy and layer them, one at a time, on top of the mess.  When I picked them up, the results were very good.  This is the second piece I played over top of the mess.  It is a tad lighter, but I like the look I got.  So the moral of this story is…..don’t give up on your “messes” ! 🙂

After my background dried, I stamped the birds and smaller sailboat on it with Gray Granite Ink.  I also stamped the larger one in the same ink but on a scrap piece of paper.  I then used the matching die set to cut out the larger boat and the Ships’s wheel.

For more texture and layers, I added the Burlap Ribbon and the White Flax Ribbon in two strips at the bottom section of the card.  The stamped piece is raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I also added one of the metallic pearls to the center of the ship’s wheel.  I did not like the hole that is i the center showing.

Again , Thank you very much for stopping by today.  I hope you will come back tomorrow.  The complete list of supplies is at the bottom of the post.

A Mosaic Card

I hope you had a relaxing and long Holiday!  I did some relaxing and some stamping, so I am happy.

I am playing along with my InKing Royalty Challenge in our Facebook group.  I have a different challenge to make a card from each day.  Today’s challenge is just titled DSP.  Well, if you have been following me for any time, you know I LOVE Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper.  Using it is not at all a problem for me.  But to make it the focal point is a bit more challenging.  I hope I have succeeded.

 

 

I was hesitant on this DSP when I first saw it.  Then after getting it in my little hands , I was shocked at how beautiful it is.  The “mosaic” is raised on one side of the sheet and not on the other.  The raised areas are just a tad shiny as well.  I know you cannot see any of that in the photo.

I used a section of one sheet for this card.  The background is the flip side of the birds.  I fussy cut the birds from the paper and taped the lower one down.  I placed dimensional beneath the upper one to give it some definition.

The sentiment is from Love What You Do stamp set.  It is definitely  one of my go to stamp sets.  I stamped with Soft Suede Ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  I then punched the sentiment out with the  Everyday Label Punch.  Just for a bit of extra, since I did not have a layer for the sentiment piece, I added ribbon behind the sentiment.  The ribbon is the new Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon.  And it is gorgeous!!

Thank you for stopping by today!  Please return tomorrow for another new project.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.
