Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop – Game On

Hello and welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share March Blog Hop. Thank you for stopping by my blog Stamping Flair today. I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Melbourne. Our theme today is projects suitable to give the younger men and older men in our lives.

I had chosen the Game On stamp set which was one of my early picks from the 2020 Annual Catalogue which I loved. I paired it with another fabulous suite from this catalogue which is the World of Good suite. This entire suite is retiring and is definitely one which I’ll be holding onto.

I have drawn inspiration from Krista Frattin’s card on the Global Design Project #gdp284.

Global Design Project #284, Case the Designer, World of Good Suite, Game on Stamp set, Stampin' Up!, SU

The set of game cards were heat embossed in White onto one of the World of Good Memories n’ More cards. I coloured in the hearts with the Dark Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blend and fussy cut the image.

The rest of the card was built around a variety of the Memories n’ More cards in this set with lots of layering. The distressed edge was achieved by running Paper Snips right along the edge.

By stamping the sentiment on one of the included cards, I was able to achieve a muted tone of Mossy Meadow. Some Brushed Metallic cardstock, together with extra pieces of cards and stickers add some Brass accents to this card.

Joy to the World

I start singing the old, familiar Christmas carol as I see the theme of Joy to the World for Day 27 of the #30DayChristmasCardMaking Challenge . Stampin’ Up! have several stamp sets that fit in with this sentiment but we needed to put a spin on the theme.

The Beautiful World bundle had the globes that suited this world-themed challenge. As I think about Christmas and what it means, it’s about families and coming home and no matter where you are in the world or how you celebrate Christmas, every family enjoys this special time of getting together.

I wanted to depict this in my card. The Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper has a sheet which has several sentiments and words in different languages centred around Christmas. Now, I don’t know what they mean but I am certain they are to do with Christmas and it brings joy to someone, somewhere in the world. The Paper Trimmer came in very handy for the process of cutting up all the sentiments.

I used the Stitched Triangles to add a contrast for the globe and main sentiment to stand out on, cutting one in half to create more interest in the background.

Pretty in Pink Globe #gdp250

I’ve got another card for you today using the fabulous Beautiful World bundle by Stampin’ Up!  When I get a stamp set, bundle or suite, I always like to try and work out alternate colour schemes. This gives me more creative options than the ones that already come with the suite. 

So I’ve gone with pinks for this card. I just loved creating the watercoloured globe. I used our stamp positioning tool, the Stamparatus to add colour using a sponge dauber. Firsty, I added Calypso Coral randomly over the globe stamp then I lightly spritzed with water and stamped onto Shimmery White cardstock. I repeated this process with the Magenta Madness ink. 

Both the Designer Series Paper and the Whisper White cardstock have been embossed with the Old World embossing folder. I stamped the trees from the Campology stamp set in Rococo Rose, stamped off, to create a soft background on the Whisper White panel.

The ‘friend’ sentiment was die cut 3 times in Whisper White and once in Basic Black cardstock. The top Whisper White layer was coloured with sponge daubers using Calypso Coral and Magenta Madness inks to coordinate with the rest of my card. All the sentiment layers were adhered together with glue, with the Basic Black layer slight offset to create a shadow.

My card has been inspired by the sketch challenge at Global Design Project. Make sure you check out all the other lovely projects using this sketch.
