Poppies

Hi there,

Welcome to week 2 of this months Pootler’s Design Team projects.

The featured stamp set is Flirty Flowers, and today I am using the lovely poppy image.

I have stuck with the traditional red poppy colour and with some careful selective inking, manage to stamp the stalks. I used Real Red and Wild Wasabi inks.

The white layer was matted on to Cherry Cobbler card stock.

Some beautiful white sheer ribbon was tied around before adding to a Crumb Cake card base.

The sentiment has been taken from Sunshine Sayings. I was thinking about Remembrance Day and the message it brings. This was cut with the smallest scalloped square from the Layering Squares framelit set, and then added with a dimensional.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Thanks for stopping by… Be sure to look at the projects created by Laurie, Jill, Julie and Tracy.

Happy Stampin’!

Pretty in Pink

Good Morning,

I do love the Daisy Delight stamp set and matching punch. Quick and beautiful results every time.

The card base is made from Pink Pirouette card stock. The tiny daisy motif was added along both long edges with matching ink. It’s subtle but gives it a little something.

The white layer is narrower than usual, just 2 3/4 inches wide. This was stamped with a motif from the Dare to Dream hostess set.

The sentiment is from Daisy Delight and stamped with Flirty Flamingo ink. This was adhered flat to the card base.

I stamped the daisy twice and punched these plus a plain white one. These were shaped using a ball tool and foam mat, then layered together with glue dots.

I used the new punch to cut sine leaves from Colour Theory DSP.

The elements were arranged on the card and some white enamel accents finish it off.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online shop below.

Christmas Feeling

Good Morning,

Today’s project features the ghhgfh stamp set.

There are two large images in the set. The first, I used to create an interesting effect on a card layer. I randomly stamped with Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi ink. I mat and layered this on to Lemon Lime Twist card stock and then on to a Tranquil Tide card base.

The main image was stamped in Archival Black ink. This was coloured with watercolour pencils and blender pens.

The wording from the same set, was stamped with Calypso Coral ink.

Hi there Everyone,

I am sharing another quick and simple Christmas card with you.

On a white card layer, I stamped five little trees at the bottom with Garden Green ink. This was adhered to a black card base.

The sentiment was stamped in Real Red ink, and die cut. This was added to a Cherry Cobbler scalloped square.

I added the sentiment to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and tied a tiny bow from quilted ribbon.

Good Morning!

Another beautiful layering set from Stampin’ UP! This is Painted Harvest.

To create the background, the flowers were stamped with So Saffron and Crumb Cake ink.

An additional flower was made by stamping the first layer with Crushed Curry ink, then the second layer in Tangerine Tango. This was fussy cut to create an embellishment.

Leaves were stamped with Pear Pizzazz ink and cut with the coordinating punch.

Before assembling the card, a sentiment was stamped with Cajun Craze ink.

The flower and leaves were added to the background and then adhered to a Tangerine Tango card base.

Finally, I added a few Glitter Enamel Dots and a spattering of Wink of Stellar to add some sparkle.

Awesome

Hello there,

So who said flamingos had to be pink? I love how this turned out.

I have used this stamp before, with a very similar design and traditional pink colours.

The bird has been stamped in Soft Sky, Marina Mist and Night of Navy ink.

Pear Pizzazz and Bermuda Bay were used for the water.

The scenery was built up with Pear Pizzazz, Wild Wasabi and Old Olive inks.

For some contrast, Fresh Fig card stock was used to make the card base. I used the same ink for the sentiment.

Red and Black

Hi there,

I have the very great pleasure of being on the Pootlers Design Team for the month of September.

Please be sure to stop by my friends’ posts too. You will find the links to these other fantastic projects at http://www.pootles.co.uk

The featured stamp set is Flirty Flowers from the annual catalogue.

I have adapted a design I used a couples of weeks ago, which I really liked.

The card base is made from black card stock. A Cherry Cobbler card layer was cut to 4 by 5 3/4 inches.

A piece of Whisper White measuring 3 7/8 by 5 5/8 inches was used for the stamping. Basic Black and Real Red inks were used to stamp the flowers, leaving 2 inches blank at the top.

Cherry Cobbler Stitched Ribbon was added across the card stock and then adhered to the Cherry Cobbler card layer. This was added to the card base.

The sentiment was stamped in Real Red ink and cut with a Stitched Shape framelit. Layering Squares were then used to cut black and red layers.

These were adhered together with Fast Fuse and added to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finally, I added some bling with some Basic Rhinestones.

I hope you enjoyed this project. Thanks for stopping by and happy stampin’!

Good Morning!

A card to make the turn if the weather this week, autumn is on its way!

On a piece of Crumb Cake, I used versamark ink to stamp leaves from the Colorful Seasons set, which I then embossed with white powder.

I repeated this process with copper embossing powder.

The smaller solid leaf was then added in between for another layer of interest. These were not heat embossed but left as a watermark.

The piece was mounted on to a white card base. A sentiment from the same set was embossed with gold powder on Very Vanilla card and cut to a banner.

Some copper thread and copper trim were adhered behind the sentiment before adhering to the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the shop below.

Good Tidings

Good Morning,

Layering stamp sets seem to be all the rage at the moment. This holly branch combines a number of stamps for a realistic effect.

For the leaves I used Wild Wasabi and Garden Green inks to get a rich dark green colour.

The berries were first stamped in Calypso Coral, with Real Red for the second layer.

The branch used Soft Suede and Early Espresso ink.

The sentiment, I opted for Crushed Curry for a “gold” look with out getting the embossing powders out…. Sort of like a vintage card may have looked.

To tie the yellow in, I adhered this on to a So Saffron card layer and added some lovely new Quilted Christmas ribbon down the side. This was all added to a Garden Green card base, with a couple of rhinestones.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are linked to the shop below.

Beautiful Season

Hi there,

I have another card featuring new products for you.

This great tree is a layering stamp. The base layer was stamped in Tranquil Tide ink.

I chose to use versamark ink for the second layer so I could heat emboss with white powder for a snow effect.

The border was die cut with the Card Front Builder die set.

Some red card stock was adhered behind the white layer, and the sentiment added.

The panel was added to a Tranquil Tide card base, to match the foliage of the tree.

Birthday Wishes

Hi there folks,

Very quick and easy make today, but doesn’t it look terrific?

I have used the Happiest of Days stamp set.

I made a card base from Berry Burst card stock in the usual way by cutting A4 lengthways at 4 1/8 inches then scoring at 5 7/8 inches.

The white card layer is cut to 4 by 5 3/4 inches. The rose was stamped over this in Berry Burst ink. This was adhered flat to the card base.

The sentiment was also stamped in Berry Burst ink on to a scrap piece of white card. I originally intended to span this across the card but ended up cutting it down and adding to a Berry Burst layer.

I finished the card with a bow and Glitter Enamel Dots.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked below.

Cool

Hello Everyone,

I thought I would make something summery for you today.

I started by creating the ice cream cones. The elements were all cut with the Frozen Treats Framelits. I chose Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron and Pool Party for the scoops. Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip was used for the cones and chocolate topping.

A piece of Whisper White card was partially cut with the largest stitched square framelit. The die was moved along and partially die cut again to make a rectangle. This was layered on to some Wild Wasabi card stock.

Add the ice creams to this piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A Whisper White card layer was decorated with the sprinkles stamp from the Cool Treats set using Crumb Cake ink. Some Lemon Lime Twist ribbon was adhered across the middle before adding to a Wild Wasabi card blank.

I added the ice cream panel to the card base with Fast Fuse adhesive. A knot of ribbon was also added with a glue dot.

The sentiment was stamped in Wild Wasabi ink and then cut with a small oval die.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the shop below.

The box base was made from Tip Top Taupe card stock. This is a retiring colour, but could easily be substituted with Crumb Cake or Smoky Slate.

Cut the card to 4 1/2 inch square and score all 4 sides at 1 inch.

For the lid, cut the designer paper to 6 1/4 inch square. Score all 4 sides at 1 and 2 inches. Cut and notch out tabs. Secure 2 corners of the box as normal. Place the lid on to the box then secure the remaining tabs around the base to ensure a perfect fit.

The lid was decorated with a viyl sticker and a medallion die cutvin Dapper Denim. The sentiment was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist ink, die cut and added to the box with dimensinals.
