Mountain Air Thinking of You

Mountain air sympathy thinking of youI guess as I get older, more and more friends I know are losing parents and loved ones.

So sad, but, unfortunately, a way of life.

This is the card I created to send to a friend after the death of a brother (non Corona Virus related.)

I hope it brought some comfort.

I stamped layers of mountains using the Mountain Air stamp set in Basic Gray ink on Very Vanilla card stock full strength and again without reinking.

The trees were stamped in Basic Gray ink and cut out using the Big Shot and coordinating Majestic Mountain die.

The tree was cut out of Basic Black card stock using the Big Shot and Majestic Mountain die, and was attached using a small amount of Tombow Multi-purpose Glue.

The greeting comes from Sincere Salutations, a retired set in my stash that I still use often.

Sponged Embossed Vellum

Stampin' Blends Vellum

 

Stampin' Blends Vellum inside


Here's another idea using vellum card stock using an embossing folder.  Then, add color to the back of the vellum using sponges. 

Easy to do.

Here's how:

  1. Emboss vellum card stock using the Big Shot and Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder.
  2. Sponge Granny Apple Green, Flirty Flamingo, Rococco Rose, and Poppy Parade inks on the back side of the embossed vellum. You can also do the Direct to Paper method by swiping ink directly from the ink pads.  Use the sponge to blend the colors.
  3. Attach vellum to Whisper White card base, using a small amount in the corners so it doesn’t show through the vellum. Punch a circle out of the card front using the 2” circle punch.  Mark the inside with a pencil so you know where to stamp the Painted Poppies image so it shows through the circle.
  4. Stamp poppies using Memento Black ink. Stamp background using Flirty Flamingo or Rococco Rose ink.  Ink, stamp off, then stamp. 
  5. Color poppies using various Stampin’ Write Markers.
  6. To create the ring on the outside, punch a 2” circle out of Pear Pizzazz card stock. Punch it slightly off the edge of the card stock to match up with the punched circle on the card front.  Then, place the 2 ¼” circle over the hole and punch.  You’ll be left with a ¼” ring.  Attach the ring to the card front using Tombow Multi-purpose Glue.
  7. Stamp greeting from Varied Vases on scrap piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock using Memento Black ink. Cut out using the Big Shot and Stitched Rectangle Die.  Attach to card front to complete.

Faux Pergamano Pocketful of Happiness

Faux Pergamano

My Wetmore Ladies stamping group asked that we use vellum in our next class project.

Well, that's an easy request as one of my all-time favorites using vellum cardstock is the Faux Pergamano Technique.

First of all, what is Pergamano?

Pergamano (from Wikipedia): Parchment craft, also known as Pergamano, is the art of embellishing and decorating parchment paper (or vellum paper) through the use of techniques such as embossing, perforating, stippling, cutting and coloring.

Parchment craft has been predominantly used in the making of cards (religious devotional cards, greeting cards and gift cards) but the techniques are being applied to related items such as bookmarks and picture frames as well as 3-dimensional sculptural paper projects such as ornaments and boxes.

It's easy to recreate Pergamano using vellum and a stylus. 

Here's how:

  1. Stamp pocket from Pocketful of Happiness on vellum card stock using White Craft ink. Heat emboss using a heat tool and white embossing powder.
  2. Cut pocket out using the Big Shot and coordinating Pocket Die.
  3. Turn the pocket to the backside and fill in the stamped images using a stylus. Turn it to the front side, and fill in the stamped images using a stylus.
  4. Stamp individual flowers on vellum card stock using White Craft ink. Heat emboss using a heat tool and white embossing powder.  Fussy cut flowers out using a pair of scissors.  Fill in the stamped images using a stylus on the front and back sides of the flowers and leaves.
  5. Rub Basic Black card front with the Embossing Buddy. Stamp greeting using White Craft ink.  Heat emboss using a heat tool and white embossing powder.
  6. Fold in edges of pocket, apply SNAIL Adhesive, and attach the pocket to the card front. Insert flowers and leaves, securing them with SNAIL Adhesive.
  7. Apply thin strip of Whisper White card stock to the top of the pocket to finish it off.
  8. Color pearls with Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend and attach to card as desired.

I hope you'll give this technique a try!

Happy Easter Cards for Grandkids

Daisy punch rabbit

This is the card I made for our 3-year-old granddaughter, Madysen.

Madysen has wild bunnies or "hop, hops" as she calls them, visit her yard daily. 

She's always on the lookout for them, and they bring her great joy.

For this card, I punched flowers out of various colors of card stock using the Daisy Punch.

Then, I trimmed the daisy down, leaving just two petals or hop, hop ears.

I used designs from Best Dressed 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper for the background.

I used the In the Woods landscape die and Big Shot to cut the top of the Old Olive polka dot DSP.

The greetings came from Bunny Buddies, a 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit, and were stamped using Blackberry Bliss ink and the Stamparatus.

Supplies Used:

Stamp Set: Bunny Buddies

Ink: Blackberry Bliss

Paper: Petal Pink (card base), Melon Mambo, Gorgeous Grape, Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay, Purple Posy, Best Dressed 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper

Accessories: Daisy Punch, Big Shot, In the Woods Die, Stamparatus

Blueberry Bushel Easter

This is the card I made for our 7-month-old grandson, Ryan.

I used a variety of current and retired products.

The bunny's body and the card base were cut out using the Big Shot and circles and ovals found in Stitched Shapes Dies (current). 

I used my 1 1/8 scallop circle punch (retired) to create the tail.

I cut off the bottom part of the large circle.

 I placed the largest circle just above the scored piece of Blueberry Bushel card stock, making the circle the card base.

After the body parts were stamped, I embossed them using the Big Shot and Subtles Embossing Folder.

For the bunny's eyes, nose and whiskers, I used stamps found in Bunny Buddies, a March 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit.

The detail on the ears, eyebrows, feet, and bow tie were stamped using images found in Playful Pals (retired).  The bow tie was cut out using the Big Shot and coordinating Pyramid Pals Dies (retired).

I usually don't use retired product for my projects, but I saved these cute animal sets because I knew grandchildren would be on the way.

So, I hope you won't mind too much!

 

Supplies Used:

Stamp Sets: Bunny Buddies, Playful Pals

Ink: Basic Gray, Blueberry Bushel

Paper: Whisper White, Blueberry Bushel

Accessories: Big Shot, Stitched Shapes and Pyramid Pals Dies, 1 1/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Subtles Embossing Folder

March Nacho Average Sketch Challenge-Peaceful Poppies and Bird Ballad DSP

Nacho Average Challenge

My Upline, Tammy Fite, posted this sketch challenge for her Nacho Average downline members for March. 

I usually don't go searching for online challenges to participate in, but this one coming from my Upline, I knew I wanted to participate.

It can often help to have a challenge to get the creative juices flowing.

Here are the cards I came up for this challenge.

I wanted to use the scraps of paper I had on my work table.

As it happened, I had pieces of Peaceful Poppies and Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper left over from various projects.

I decided to let the DSP do the heavy lifting for me!

Nacho Challenge

I really like the bright poppy watercolor design found in Peaceful Poppies DSP.  Spring just jumps off the paper!

For this card, I simply cut a piece of the DSP into a square using the Big Shot and one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I then made a Flirty Flamingo frame to go around it by nesting two of the dies and popping it up with Mini Dimensionals.

I embossed the Old Olive piece using the Big Shot and Subtles Embossing Folder.

The greeting is from Itty Bitty Greetings, stamped in Rich Razzleberry using the Stamparatus.

I added some Rich Razzleberry enamel dots out of my stash to complete.

Nacho ChallengeHere's another take on the sketch I made using scraps of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

This paper just makes me smile!

I used the Stitched Shapes and Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the paper for easy layering.

Then, the pieces left over from the card above where used to create this card.

One sketch morphed into three cards!

Easy, peasy!

Vellum Poppies

Vellum poppiesI CASED Mary Brown's vellum poppies card using Perennial Essence Vellum card stock paired with Poppy Moments Dies.

I really like the soft colors found in the vellum pack (Old Olive, Petal Pink, and So Saffron).

It just look like Spring!

Then, I changed up the card a little to create this card for a Beta Sigma Phi Founder's Day invitation.

BSP invitation

Yellow and black are the colors for the Beta Sigma Phi organization, so I paired the So Saffron vellum with Daffodil Delight card stock.

I had to make 3 invitations.  There were a lot of pieces to cut, but the cards came together pretty easily.

Mountain Air Sending Prayers

Sending prayers

Unfortunately, I needed to send out a sympathy card to the family of a neighbor who passed away recently.

The images in the Mountain Air stamp set and coordinating Majestic Mountain Dies are perfect for our setting here in the mountains of southern Colorado.

You  can view more of my Mountain Air creations HERE.

To create the mountain scene, I started with the background on watercolor paper using Pacific Point, Balmy Blue, Petal Pink, and Crushed Curry inks swiped on using an aqua painter.

I heat embossed the detail mountain image using white embossing powder on Night of Navy and Seaside Spray card stock for the first two layers of mountains.  For the third layer, I stamped Blueberry Bushel ink on Whisper White card stock.

The treeline and landscape were embossed on Garden Green card stock.

The two trees were cut out of Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz card stock and added to the front to give a little more dimension.

Mountain Air Paper Towel Background

Purple Mountains Majesty Paper Towel Background

Mountain air paper towel background

I used the paper towel I had used to blot the Pigment Sprinkles on the two cards I shared HERE to create these Mountain Air background cards.

I often use the paper towels I use to blot watercolor or to clean off stamps.

There is always a great mix of colors with a cool texture of the paper towel.

It's a great way to recycle and reuse!

I separated the plys of the paper towel.   This way, I can make two cards from one paper towel.

I attached  the plys to a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock using SNAIL as my adhesive.

Once the paper towel is attached to a sturdy base, it is easy to cut it down to the size needed.

For the mountains on the first card, I stamped the detail side of the mountains found in Mountain Air onto a piece of Highland Heather card stock using Black Berry Bliss ink.

I stamped it again on another piece of Highland Heather card stock without reinking.

Then, I cut them out with the coordinating Majestic Mountain Die.

I cut  a thin strip of Highland Heather card stock and attached it to the first layer of mountains so there would be a straight edge at the bottom.

I then attached the two layers of mountains using Mini Dimensionals in between to pop up the first layer.  I added  them to the paper towel card front, again using Mini Dimensionals to pop them up.

I stamped the birds from Mountain Air in Blackberry Bliss ink on the card front using the Stamparatus to get good stamped images.  I also used the Stamparatus to stamp the greeting from Itty Bitty Greetings in Blackberry Bliss ink.

The card front was matted to Blackberry Bliss, then attached to Whisper White card base.

The second card is basically made the same except I changed the colors a little bit.

I stamped the first layer of mountains on Pool Party card stock using Blackberry Bliss ink.

I stamped the second layer of mountains on Whisper White card stock without reinking.

I stamped the third layer of mountains  on Whisper White card stock using Blueberry Bushel ink.  I stamped the image on a scrap piece of paper, then stamped again without reinking.

I used Mini Dimensionals in between the layers to pop them up.

Tie-Dye Hexagons

Tie dye hexagons

I often incorporate paper towels or baby wipes that I have used to blot watercolor, Pigment Sprinkles or to clean off stamps in my crafting.

I love the bright colors and tie-dye effect!

Pigment Sprinkles Honey Bee Hexagons

Honey Bee Hexagons Anniversary

Honey Bee Hexagons Thank You

I had left over honeycombs and hexagons from my card HERE, so I decided to pair them with Pigment Sprinkles backgrounds.

I simply spritzed watercolor paper with water, then added Pigment Sprinkles.

For the first card, I used Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green Pigment Sprinkles.

For the second card, I used Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay Sprinkles.

I let the Sprinkles run and pool, then dabbed the paper with a paper towel.

Once dry, I added the honey combs using a small amount of Tombow Multi-purpose Glue.  I filled in a few of the honey combs with left over hexagons.

The greetings came from Itty Bitty Greetings.

Oops, I should have used the Stamparatus for the greeting on the second card as it came out a little crooked stamped free hand!

Recycle and Reuse!

Here's what the baby wipes looked like:
