Step-it-Up Sunday #58 Everything is Rosy Alternate Project

Hello crafty friends,

Thank you for stopping by my blog to see what I have created for you today. Stepping it up with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley is easy. With so many products to choose from, you can create everything from simple projects to very detailed. My card is definitely not so Rosy today. I have gone with shades of green and brown for some nature-inspired colours. For my card base I used the retiring In-Colour – Tranquil Tide. 

The inspiration for my layout is taken from the brand new Annual Catalogue which will be available on 4th June. I chose the ard in the top left with the anchor for my sketch. I liked the borders on the sides of the card.

Please contact me on Ph: 0404 255 001 to request a copy of the catalogue. 

Beginner

Beginner card with Everything is Rosy Project medley by Stampin' Up!

Tranquil Tide Card Base 21 x 14.8cm (scored in half)
Wood Textures DSP 14.8 x 10.5cm
Old Olive DSP 8.5x 2.5cm

This card is great for the beginner with a little bit of stamping and added elements to create a quick and easy card. I started off by stamping the leaves right along both edges of the Designer Paper in Old Olive. Photopolymer stamps make it easy to create a border like this as you can see through it.

Stamping on patterned paper gives you added design and texture to your projects. The Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) has so many textured images in it that it can be used for all types of projects. 

The sentiment was stamped onto a pre-cut label from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit. This Kit comes in a lovely presentation box with the Stampin’ Up Statement of the Heart printed on top. The silver flower is also from this kit and adds a lovely finishing touch to this #simplestamping card.

* 4 large labels

I stepped this card up a little bit by adding some stamped flowers in Soft Suede and leaves in Tranquil Tide behind the sentiment. These stamps are so beautiful and I really like the Soft Suede version of these flowers. I added some twine from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit to complete this card. 

Avid

Additional measurements
Whisper White cardstock 10.8 x 2.8cm
Basic Black cardstock 11.4 x 3.4cm

My card for the avid crafter utilizes the beautiful dies that come in the Everything is Rosy Product Medley. I stamped the flowers in Soft Suede onto Soft Suede cardstock. The leaves have been stamped in Tranquil Tide onto Old Olive cardstock which gives it a lovely two-tone effect. 

The additional leaves are die cut from Tranquil Tide cardstock. Although they look similar to the leaves that are stamped behind on the Desginer Series Paper, it doesn’t cut out the stamped image – it’s completely different. However, it works together with the stamp to create a fuller look.

To break the greens and browns up I wanted a black and white paper. However I had nothing to match which was current, so I created my own with the handwritten background stamp. This is a stamp which I haven’t used much but I am loving this look in black as it added just what I wanted to make those flowers stand out.

The sentiment was heat embossed with Clear embossing powder to make it pop against the flowers. I created a bow by wrapping twine 3 times around my fingers and tying it off. Then I added the braided linen which really works well with the Wood Textures DSP.

Bloom by Bloom Card with a Simple Sketch

The Bloom by Bloom stamp is featured in my April Class in the Mail. With many images of flowers, some a little bit abstract, they make it so easy to create focal images and backgrounds alike. Combined with the Bitty Blooms punch pack they make some fun projects and you save 10% buying them as a bundle. This set is on the retiring list so get it while you can. 

This particular set has become more appealing to me as I’ve used it in softer, pastel shades. I love this flower in Highland Heather, Balmy Blue, Blushing Bride and lighter colours. This card is based on a simple sketch and combines Highland Heather, Gray Granite and Whisper White.I love the soft look of this combination of colours. 

Bloom by Bloom, Simple Layout,

I’ve stamped the flowers in Highland Heather on the card base. Then I added a panel of Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals range. The Dot to Dot Embossing Folder adds the base for my flower. Embossing folders are such an easy way to add texture to projects.

I’ve added some Gray Granite ribbon which has been tied off in a knot together with the tulle ribbon to add to the softness of this card. The sentiment is from Banners for You stamp set which will be retiring along with the matching Bunch of Banners dies.

Anzac Day Thank You with Bitty Blooms

ANZAC Day Thank you Card, Gratitude

As we commemorate ANZAC day, we do so with gratitude for the sacrifice that was and continues to be made by men and women to keep us safe in this blessed land we call home – Australia. I think of the families of those who serve our country. They are without a husband, wife, dad, mum, son, daughter, brother, sister – all their lives are affected by wars and conflict when their loved one is serving their country. 

To all these wonderful people who have served and continue to serve our nation, Thank You, 

Today I’ve come up with a simple Thank You card using the One for All stamp. Do you buy stamp sets that sit there uninked and then they retire? Well, this was one of mine. I have used the Stamparatus so I didn’t have to move the stamp at all when I re-inked for the different colours. Post-it-Notes were used to mask off the sentiment when I inked up the leaves- first in Pear Pizzazz and then I added some Mossy Meadow with a sponge dauber. 

I masked off the leaves and then stamped the sentiment in Black Stazon ink. The Stamparatus makes it so easy when stamping mutliples times. 

Poppies with Bitty Blooms punch, ANZAC Day handmade card

The poppies were so simple to create with the Bitty Blooms punch pack. The centres were punched out as well and glue dots were my best friend in this process. 

Handmade card using One for All stamp set, ANZAC Day thank you

I die cut several leaves from Glossy cardstock and sponged a mix of Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow over it. Adding the darker leaves at the back gave it depth.The base card has been embossed with the Subtle embossing folder for that little bit of texture without taking away from the main image. It’s hard to pick up on a photo sometimes because it’s that subtle!. It has a lovely look of linen card and works for all types of cards.  

Hope you have a wonderful day and be filled with thanks.

Thank You So Much from A Good Day Stamp Set

Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride is my chosen colour combination for this sweet, feminine, thank you card. I have drawn inspiration from a couple of challenges. 

SIP-Challenge-194-Tic-Tac-Toe-NEW-800-791x1024, A Good Day stamp set, Thank youThe first is this Tic-Tac-Toe challenge by Stamp Ink Paper and I chose the top line of Subtles, Circle and Ribbon. So off I went to my Subtles collection and came up with a pretty colour combo.

The next challenge was this lovely sketch from Sunday Stamps.

I layered a panel of Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper 10.1×14.4 cm on a Mint Macaron card base. The 3 Whisper White panels were cut at 9.3 x 4cm. Then I embossed each of these separately.  To get this look, take your Mint Macaron ink pad direct to the embossing folder and ink the raised side. Then run it through the Big Shot. This embosses with the colour showing in the indents. I love this method of quickly adding colour to projects. 

Tip:

Clean the embossing folder prior to running through each time so the ink doesn’t transfer onto the next strip of cardstock.  Also use Thick Whisper White cardstock as it doesn’t crease. 

I stamped the sentiment and coloured in the leaves with a Mint Macaron marker. The ribbon has been layered using double sided tape. 

The leaves from the Framed Elements were embossed with White embossing powder. Then I coloured them in with the Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend. Doing this allows you to use it on so many projects by just colouring it to tie in with your colour scheme.

Keeping it Simple with a Card Sketch and Patterned Paper

I have chosen the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper to create my cards today. The card sketch I have chosen is a simple one which allows you to layer your paper and display the different designs. As this paper is bright and has a lot of design I didn’t add a lot extra. Keeping it simple worked well and showed off the pretty paper. The coordinating colours for this paper are Call me Clover, Calypso Coral, Lovely Lipstick, Night of Navy, Pineapple Punch and Whisper White. 

Handy Hint:

On each pack of Designer Series Paper, the coordinating colours are printed on the back of the pack. I always keep this piece of cardstock or write the colours from the sticker onto the piece of cardstock before storing them. This helps with easy colour coordination when making projects.

To offset the busy patterns, I have added a panel of Whisper White cardstock which has been embossed with the Subtle embossing folder.  This adds just enough texture without making it too busy. The sentiments use the Label Me Pretty stamp set. Add some enamel dots and these cards are very quick to put together.
