Paper Craft Crew Inspiration Challenge #PCC379: Jar of Flowers

Good morning!

It's an exciting day in the paper crafting world, Stampin' Up!'s new Annual Catalog was released today and we can start ordering lots of fun goodies.  One of the new bundles being released is the Jar of Flowers stamp set with coordinating punch so I decided to use it for today's Paper Craft Crew Inspiration Challenge card.

I used Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardbase of this card and then added a piece of Mango Melody cardstock which was embossed with the Subtles 3D Embossing folder for the cardfront and then added a piece of the new In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (there are so many amazing patterns in this pack, you'll want to make sure to include it on your first order).

For the stamped image I stamped the jar, flowers, and stems from the Jar of Flowers stamp set on Whisper White cardstock and then colored it in using my Stampin' Blends.  I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the white layer and then matted it with Terracotta Tile cardstock as a mat.

I used the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set for the greeting and stamped in Cajun Craze ink on Crumb Cake cardstock before cutting it out with the Stitched Shapes Dies and attached the greeting with dimensionals.  To finish off the card I added a bow using the Old Olive Ribbon in the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.

This card is perfect for summer, I love the warm colors and textures and this stamp set will be good for projects for all seasons.  Make sure to check out the other cards the design team is sharing using this inspiration picture and we would love for you to share what you create.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #339: Birthday Goodness

Good morning!

We're continuing with our quarantine craziness but at least the weather is supposed to be nicer this week so I'm looking forward to that.  I also needed a little break so I hopped into the studio for a little color therapy to play along with this weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge (look at these fabulous, springy colors!)

I used Smoky Slate cardstock for the cardbase and then added Basic Black as the mat for the cardfront that's Seaside Spray Designer Series Paper from the 2019-2021 In Colors DSP stack.

For the main stamped image I used the Birthday Goodness stamp set and stamped in Momento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with the Stitched Rectangles Dies before coloring it in with the Stampin' Blends.

I tucked another pattern of DSP, in Rococo Rose behind the stamped image for a pop of color.  To finish off the card I added some rhinestones, as well as a bow tied with Mint Macaron 1/4" Textile Ribbon and the greeting which was stamped on Rococo Rose cardstock and attached with mini dimensionals.

I have to admit, this stamp set is one of my favorites, who doesn't love yummy treats, and I'm sad that it's retiring at the end of the month (I'll be holding on to my stamp set for sure!) so I can continue sending sweet, carb-free, birthday greetings.  Make sure to check out the other cards the design team is sharing as inspiration and we would love for you to play along with us and share what you create.

Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #PCC381: Pedal to the Metal

Good morning!

While I know it's very easy to gravitate towards the flowery, feminine type cards we can't forget all the special guys in our lives (and since I'm in a house full of dudes that's especially true!)  The Pedal to the Metal stamp set (sadly retiring) is so fun and perfect for guy greetings so I decided to use it for this weeks Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge.

I started with Poppy Parade cardstock and then added the Crumb Cake cardfront with Basic Black cardstock.  On the cardfront I stamped on the background using the Artisan Textures stamp set (also retiring) using Crumb Cake ink.  I added a piece of Brights Designer Series Paper (in Poppy Parade of course) behind the stamped greeting to add that pop of color).

I stamped the buggy image in Momento Ink on Whisper White cardstock and then colored it in with Stampin' Blends, before cutting it out with the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I matted the die cut with a larger oval cut from the Layering Ovals Dies using Basic Gray cardstock before attaching it with dimensionals to the cardfront.

To finish off the card I added the greeting which was heat embossed in Whisper White on Basic Black cardstock and then added some Silver Metallic Pearls as the final touch.

Doesn't this card just make you want to go play in the mud and have a little fun?  I know we're all looking forward to getting back to a little adventure so this will have to do until we're all able to get out there again.  Make sure to check out the other cards the design team is sharing for inspiration and we would love for you to play along with us and share what you create.
