SU Good Morning Magnolia Card

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share with you a card I created for a sketch challenge hosted by CAS(E) this Sketch. You can see the inspiration below…

If you would like to find out more about these challenges, see the other entries or take part, you can visit the website here.

I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set in combination with the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP). I hope you like my project…

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Mint Macaron cardstock. This is followed by a 14.4 x 10 cm layer of Mint Macaron cardstock. To adhere to the sketch I have used 2.5cm wide strips of the Garden Lane DSP at the top and bottom of the card front.

The magnolia image is stamped in Mint Macaron ink onto Whisper White cardstock and coloured using the Mint Macaron and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Combos. I decided to fussy-cut the image rather than die cutting because I didn’t want any white space around the image.

The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso ink onto Mint Macaron cardstock and cut out using one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. The magnolia image is then layered onto this using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

A piece of Early Espresso cardstock is cut out using the 2.25″ Circle Punch. The sentiment is adhered to this using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the whole piece adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I think the combination of Mint Macaron and Early Espresso works really well and allows the Flirty Flamingo flower to really pop out from the card!

SU Garden Lane DSP Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you a card I created for a sketch challenge. The challenge was hosted by The Spot. You can find out more about these challenges, see the other entries and join in here.

The sketch for the challenge is shown below.

I decided to combined the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Garden Lane DSP with Daisies created using the Daisy and Medium Daisy Punches.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card simply scroll to the bottom of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Mossy Meadow cardstock. This is followed by a layer of the Stampin’ Up! Garden Lane DSP; and, to fit with the sketch, a band of another sheet of the DSP.

The Daisies are cut from Whisper White cardstock using the Daisy and Medium Daisy Punches. The centres are cut from Mango Melody cardstock using the 0.5″ Circle Punch. The Leaf Punch is used to cut leaves from Mossy Meadow cardstock. Punched leaves are adhered to the back of the large daisy and one of the smaller daisies and these are adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is stamped onto Mossy Meadow cardstock using Versamark ink and heat embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The sentiment is from the Stitched All Around Stamp Set and is cut out using the coordinating Stitched Labels Dies.

A length of Mossy Meadow Linen Thread is tied in a bow through the holes in the die cut. The final small daisy is shaped and adhered to the die cut using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the whole sentiment piece is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I think the contrast between the rich Mossy Meadow and bright Whisper White looks great and the small elements of Mango Melody just add that finishing touch.

Daisy Lane – part 2

Last week, in the first part of my Daisy Lane stamp set showcase, I gave you some inspiration for creating projects teamed with the Daisy punch. If you haven’t read it, you can find it here. Today we are going to look at projects which don’t need the punch but use some fussy-cutting and pair up stamped images with DSP.

Again, we will look at a matching set of three items – gift tag, card and pillow gift box.

Let’s start with the gift tag…

The tag base is created from Whisper White thick cardstock and uses the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and the corner-rounder (Detailed Trio punch) to produce the basic tag shape. I have added detail and texture using the stitched edge die from the Stitched Nested Label die set.

I have also cut a piece of DSP (from the Garden Lane Suite) to the same shape and cropped slightly to reveal some of the Whisper White. The sentiment is stamped in Garden Green ink onto Mint Macaron cardstock and cut out using the Stitched Nested Label die. This is then layered onto a slightly larger die cut in So Saffron cardstock. I have then adhered the sentiment piece to the main tag.

One of the Daisy images has been stamped in Smoky Slate ink and coloured using the So Saffron Stampin’ Write marker. This has been fussy cut and adhered using dimensionals. Final touches are added with Pearl Basic Jewels coloured with So Saffron Blends and a length of Mint Macaron twine.

Next, the card…

The card base is created from Whisper White thick cardstock. I have then adhered a layer of DSP from the Garden Lane Suite. The next layer is a piece of Whisper White cardstock which has been stamped with one of the foliage stamps in Garden Green ink in the bottom right hand corner. I have added detail and texture using the stitched edge die again which helps to tie the projects together. The sentiment piece is created in the same way as for the tag and adhered over the foliage.

Three of the daisies have been stamped in Smoky Slate ink, coloured with a So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker and fussy cut. These are adhered using dimensionals and a length of Mint Macaron twine has been curled and tucked under one of the daisies. Again, final touches are added with Pearl Basic Jewels coloured with So Saffron Blends.

Finally, the gift box…

The basic gift box is one of the Kraft Pillow Boxes (available in packs of 10). To decorate the Pillow Box, I have cut a strip of Garden Lane DSP and added detail and texture with the stitched edge die. This is wrapped around the box and the two ends adhered to hold in place. The sentiment piece and Daisy are created in the same way as in the other projects. This time, the curled twine has been tucked on the sentiment piece. Final touches are added with the Pearl Basic Jewels coloured with So Saffron Blends.

Next time…

Look out for the third edition of the Daisy Lane Stamp Set Showcase next week and if you have any comments or questions in the meantime, pop them below or email me at helen@papercraftlife.com

I really enjoy making sets of matching projects and think they look most effective when there are elements running through all the projects but also little twists so that each item is individual. I hope you have enjoyed exploring these creations and inspired you to create something similar.
