SU Timeless Tulips Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you a card I made for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #376. This was a colour challenge and the requirements are shown below:

If you would like to find out more about these challenges, see the other entries or join in, you can visit the Paper Craft Crew website.

The three colours that I chose were: So Saffron, Grapefruit Grove and Pear Pizzazz. Here is my card…

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

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Pear Pizzazz cardstock. This is followed by a slightly smaller layer of Pear Pizzazz cardstock which I have embossed using the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder. I have also cut one of the frames from the Stitched Labels Dies from Pear Pizzazz cardstock. Through the holes in the frame I have threaded a length of Grapefruit Grove Grosgrain Ribbon (held in place using Tear & Tape). The frame is then adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I have stamped the main flower image from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set in Grapefruit Grove ink onto So Saffron cardstock. This is one of my favourite techniques for this stamp set. It is such a simple way to achieve the dual colour effect which is common in tulips! Having stamped the flower three times I cut them out using the coordinating Tulip Builder Punch.

I stamped three of the leaf images in Pear Pizzazz ink onto Pear Pizzazz cardstock and fussy cut them. One leaf was adhered to each tulip and then they were all adhered to the die cut frame using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is from the Well Said Stamp Set and is stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink onto Pear Pizzazz cardstock. This was then cut out using one of the Stitched Labels Dies and adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Tone-on-tone stamping is a great technique when using Whisper White cardstock seems too stark for your project. In this case I think its use helps the tulips to remain the focal point of the card whilst everything else blends together.

Under My Umbrella Card

You may have noticed that I’m currently a little obsessed by Creative Challenges! I think they are a great way to spark creativity and encourage you to try different colour combinations and styles of project. Today I want to share with you a card I created which actually meets the requirements for two Challenges! These are: the latest Papercraft Crew Challenge (PCC #375) and The Spot Challenge (#103). If you would like to find out more about these challenges, see the other entries or join in, you can find the details on their websites: Papercraft Crew and The Spot. Here are the challenges…

If you would prefer to watch me make the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch me video tutorial.

I decided to use the super cute Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Stamp Set combined with the Stampin’ Up! Stitched So Sweetly dies. The card follows the sketch from the Papercraft Crew challenge and uses the colour combination (Rococo Rose, Basic Grey and Soft Sea Foam) from The Spot challenge!

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Basic Grey cardstock and I have followed this with a slightly smaller layer of Soft Sea Foam cardstock. Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies I cut out a rectangle of Basic Grey cardstock and a slightly smaller rectangle of Soft Sea Foam cardstock and layered them together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The boots are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock and coloured using the Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends. These are then fussy cut.

The sentiment is stamped in Basic Grey ink onto Soft Sea Foam cardstock and cut out using the Stitched So Sweetly dies. The boots are adhered to the sentiment piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I have coloured a length of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon using the Rococo Rose Dark Stampin’ Blends and adhered this to the back of the sentiment piece using Tear & Tape.

The sentiment is attached to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final touch is provided by a few Soft Sea Foam Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.
