August Paper Crafting Blog Hop


Hello my crafty friends. Welcome to the August Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sandra Roberts' blog. Fantastic project, Sandra! Welcome one and all.

This month our projects will center around punches which was a great choice for me since I have been featuring punches in my weekly cards throughout the pandemic. Here's my card using three (3) punches: Flowers & Leaves punch, Label Me Fancy punch and Banners Pick a Punch. Shhhh, there is also a wee bit of fussy cutting - I hope you don't mind.

The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, scored at 4 1/4" and cut in half at 5 1/2") in Mint Macaron cardstock. The next layer is Basic White cardstock, cut 3 3/4" x 5" and stamped with the large flower cluster image from Flowers of Friendship inked in Soft Succulent. The Designer Series Paper is from the Hand-Penned 12" x 12" DSP cut 4" x 1 1/4". 

Punch #1 - Flowers & Leaves Punch
On a scrap of Pale Papaya cardstock, I stamped the flowers, twice, using Cinnamon Cider ink. I fussy cut one set of three flowers and the second set I punched the center petal of the flower using the small flower on the Flowers & Leaves punch. Just a small amount of trimming to get the petal to look just right and centered on those fussy cut flowers.

On a scrap of Mint Macaron cardstock, I stamped the leaves using Soft Succulent ink. A 1" x 4 1/4" strip is long enough to punch all four leaves following the pattern in this picture.

Tip for punching out the leaves: With the back side of the punch facing you, bring the strip of the small leaves into the punch from the left side, and then the larger leaf into the punch from the right side. Perfect!!

*The second strip in the image shows how the Just Jade looks on the Mint Macaron cardstock. I liked the Soft Succulent better.

Punch #2 - Label Me Fancy Punch
I believe that this is my...Favorite. Punch. Ever. And, I just don't use it enough. It is great for sentiments. This time I am using the punch vertically. The teeny, tiny hole is also part of this punch. For depth, I added two more punches of Vellum Cardstock and a short 1/2" strip of Pale Papaya in the back. String all of these together using the White 1/4" (6.4 MM) Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (with a hint of Pale Papaya ink from my fingers - so I just went with it!) and Linen Thread tied at the base of the ribbon to secure it.

Punch #3 - Banners Pick a Punch
The 1/2" strip of Pale Papaya cardstock peeks out of the bottom of the sentiment build and is flagged using the Banners Pick a Punch.

Whew. That is all there is to it! So, now it is time to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Joy Nelson.

This is a full list of our bloggers this month and their links in case you find yourself off track:

Simple Stamping Challenge Featuring the Free SAB Textures & Frames Stamp Set

Hello my crafty friends! Hope you have had an opportunity to see the new mini catalog and 2nd Sale-A-Bration catalog. I know!! 2nd Sale-A-Bration!! WOOHOO!! 

I haven't shared a simple stamping card in a couple of months so I thought I would create a card today using the parameters of the Simple Stamping Challenge. August is back to the true basics: stamps, ink and paper. The theme can be anything, but the project must feature a Sale-A-Bration (SAB) item. There are so many awesome free products in the SAB catalog - tough choice. I picked the Textures & Frames stamp set, which may not be at the top of your wish list. I think it is the "sleeper" of the catalog. You should reconsider selecting Textures & Frames stamp set.
#simplestamping

The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, scored at 4 1/4" and cut in half at 5 1/2") in Basic White cardstock. I chose the brushstrokes image to make the pattern along the left side of the card base. The circle image is stamped a little lower than midway on the right side. The sentiment is from one of my favorite holiday stamp sets, Banner Year. You can see I broke up the sentiment so that it would fit inside the circle. Then I scattered a couple leaves around the sentiment circle and one falling leaf. Super cute.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I hope my project has inspired your creativity.  I would love to see what you have created. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set

Hello my crafty friends! Another super busy week; last week too. I thought for this week's card, I would create a card using a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (#FMS496) and my favorite stamp set, Sweet Strawberry.

The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Pacific Point cardstock. The strawberries, flowers and leaves are stamped in Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point on Basic White Cardstock strips cut 1 1/2" x 4 3/4", 1 1/2" x 3 1/8" and 1 1/2" x 1 1/4". 

I added the Granny Apple Green Cardstock strip cut 1 1/4" x 4 7/8" to break up all the blue. Super cute.

July Paper Crafting Blog Hop


Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the July Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Joy Nelson's 
blog. Great project, Joy. Welcome one and all.

This month our blog hop is spotlighting the Designer Series Paper Sale. Select DSP from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog is on sale this month (15% discount). YAY!! Such a great deal. You know I cannot resist a deal. Here's my fancy DSP card.

The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in the new 2021-23 In Color Evening Evergreen cardstock. The next layer is Mint Macaron cardstock, cut 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" and embossed with one of the Greenery Embossing Folders.

My DSP choice is from the Hand Penned 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper. This DSP is also a product featured in the Hand-Penned Suite (AC pp. 104-105). I cut one strip 3" x 12" and then cut into 3 equal pieces, 3" x 4". I think a picture would help here:
The Pale Papaya side is flagged on the bottom edge and adhered to the flower print side. (Save the third piece for another card!) I added a piece of White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, dyed it to match (drag it across the Pale Papaya ink pad, wipe off excess, let dry a bit) and tied in a cute bow (so pretty).

I added this large circle die with a mid-sized stitched star cut in the center. You won't believe that I bought the Stitched Stars dies long ago and this is the first time I have used them. I am going to be using this die set a LOT more!

Finally, if you have been following my weekly blog posts, you know that this month I am featuring the Many Messages Stamp Set and Messages Die in all of my projects. I now have large pile of sentiments to choose from any time I make a card. It has really simplified card making. For this card, I did a little masking to create the second flagged sentiment for my birthday wishes.

So, now it is time to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Nancy Reynolds.

This is a full list of our bloggers this month and their links in case you find yourself off track:

Simple Stamping Challenge Featuring Many Messages Stamp Set

Hello my crafty friends! Hope your week is going great. I missed participating in the simple stamping challenge last month so it was my mission to join fellow demonstrators with a card for the July Simple Stamping Challenge. This month the challenge is to create a "thinking of you" card using only stamps, ink and paper, plus Designer Series Paper!!
#simplestamping

As you know, this month I am featuring cards using sentiments from the Many Messages Stamp Set. I thought this sweet "hello" message was perfect for the challenge. The card in the second panel is to show our beginner stampers how easy it would be to step up this #simplestamping card.

The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Misty Moonlilght cardstock. The DSP panel is the coordinating 2020-22 in color 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, cut 4" x 5 1/4".

I used a "different" die cut from the Message Die for the sentiment. It turned out cute. Give the #simplestamping challenge a try!

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring Many Messages Stamp Set

Hello my crafty friends! Today I want to show you this quick and easy card using sentiments from the Many Messages Stamp Set. My card design inspiration is from a Freshly Made Sketch from a couple of weeks ago. #FMS490

The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Polished Pink cardstock. The DSP strip is the coordinating 2021-23 in color 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, cut 1 1/2" x 5 1/2". 

The embellishment build is a super cute stitched flower and several leaves from the Pierced Blooms dies (coordinates with the In Bloom Stamp Set) set on a 2 1/4" circle. This die set is so cool! I have made multiple runs of the dies in all the 2021-23 in colors so I can mix and match up the flowers.

I stamped a panel of the Many Messages stamp using Polished Pink and had my choice of sentiments for the front of my card.

Normally I don't include an inside sentiment until I am ready to give/send my cards, but since I am featuring the Many Messages Stamp Set this month, I thought I might show off how easy it is to use this set for both the front and inside sentiments.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I hope my project has inspired your creativity. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring Painted Poppies and Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Sets

Hello my crafty friends. I love the summer months, but things really get busy during this time. I know it does for you too. Today I thought I would be quick and show off this card I made during the June 19 workshop.

The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Basic White cardstock. The next layer is Fresh Freesia cardstock, cut 4" x 5 1/4". The embellishment build is a 3" x 3" piece of the In Color 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. Important note: This 3" square cut makes the most use of one sheet of the In Color DSP. The field of poppies image is stamped on a 2 1/2" square piece of Basic White cardstock to fit within the DSP square. I used Stampin' Blends (Highland Heather and Calyspo Coral) to color the poppies.

If you watched my Facebook workshop video, I share that I created the card "on the fly" although I did base the design on my Blog Hop shaker card from June 16. Once I placed the field of poppies on the card base, the embellishment build did not stand out until I added a 3/16" strip of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.

The butterfly is one of the smaller butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance SS.  The sentiment is from Hey Birthday Chick SS (I love this font!). And don't forget a couple of adhesive-backed sequins for some bling!.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I hope my project has inspired your creativity. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.
