Stampin' Up! Rooted In Nature Frame Card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s Make It…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Soft Suede cardstock. The next layer is a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 13.9 x 9.5 cm.

Stamp the large tree in Soft Suede ink into the centre of the Whisper White layer. Cut this out using the coordinating die from the Nature’s Roots Die Set.

Use the (approx.) 7.6 x 11 cm Stitched Rectangle Die to cut a frame from the remaining piece of Whisper White cardstock. You should now have three pieces – the tree, the stitched frame (with the tree cut out of it) and the outer frame (with the rectangle cut out of it).

Emboss the outer frame using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere this to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Adhere the stitched frame to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Apply Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back of the tree die cut and carefully place it into the aperture in the raised frame.

Stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock in Soft Suede ink and cut out using the (approx.) 2.2 x 7.3 cm Stitched Rectangle Die. Cut a small length of Copper Metallic Ribbon (from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack) and adhere at the back of the sentiment piece using Tear & Tape. Cut another small length of the ribbon, thread it through one of the Acorn Trinkets and tie to the first piece of ribbon. Adhere the sentiment piece to the raised frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I think this card is a fabulous combination of clean and simple with a few great techniques thrown in. The Whisper White and Soft Suede colour scheme works so well with the copper embellishments.

Grapefruit Grove Colour Challenge 3

Hello and welcome to Week 3 of my Grapefruit Grove Colour Challenge! Don’t forget that as one of the 2018-2020 InColours, Grapefruit Grove will soon be gone forever! So, if you have the ink pad, make sure you have purchased the re-inker and stock up on cardstock and other items while they last.

For Week 3, the colour combination is Grapefruit Grove, Daffodil Delight and Mossy Meadow. This seemed like such a gorgeous spring time combination that I decided to use the Medium Daisy Punch with a lovely, fresh watercolour background.

If you missed Week 1 or 2 you can find them here… Week 1, Week 2

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a 14.4 x 10 cm layer of Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper to form the main card front.

I have created a watercolour wash on the card front using Daffodil Delight and Mossy Meadow inks and my Aquapainters.

The three Daisies are created by cutting out 12 pieces of Whisper White cardstock using the Medium Daisy Punch (4 pieces per daisy). The four pieces are all offset slightly from one another and adhered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The flower centres are created by cutting out pieces of Grapefruit Grove cardstock using the 0.5″ Circle Punch (also retiring soon!). Two of the daisies are adhered directly to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

A length of Grapefruit Grove Grosgrain Ribbon is attached to the card front (between the daisies) using a Mini Glue Dot.

The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Stamp Set and is stamped in Mossy Meadow ink onto Whisper White cardstock. This is cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. A smaller one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies is used to cut out a piece of Grapefruit Grove cardstock and these die cuts are layered together. The sentiment piece is adhered with both Stampin’ Dimensionals (to the card front) and Multipurpose Liquid Glue (to the daisies).

The final daisy is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals such that it slightly overlaps the sentiment piece.

What do you think?

I hope you like my interpretation of the Grapefruit Grove Colour Challenge. Which products would you have used? I think that Grapefruit Grove is a wonderful accent colour and I’m going to miss it more than I thought I would!

Grapefruit Grove Colour Challenge Week 1

Hello and welcome to my weekly Colour Challenge. It’s the first Tuesday of the month which means we have a new, randomly selected, colour – the retiring In Colour, Grapefruit Grove. As always, Week 1 is monochrome and I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Stamp Set.

Grapefruit Grove doesn’t always stand out that well for whole images or sentiments on Whisper White or Very Vanilla so I decided to do it the other way round!

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Grapefruit Grove cardstock and this is followed by a 14.4 x 10 cm layer of Grapefruit Grove cardstock.

I have heat embossed the various floral images from the stamp set onto the card front using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. A length of Grapefruit Grove Grosgrain Ribbon is then attached to the card front using one of the Mini Library Clips. This layer is then adhered to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment and rain drops are also heat embossed onto Grapefruit Grove cardstock using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This is cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. The next largest die is used to cut out a piece of the Grapefruit Grove 6×6″ DSP. These two rectangles are layered together and adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

SU Morning Star Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you a card which is the latest addition to my Card Kit offering. These card kits are perfect for those who have a few stamp sets and ink pads but don’t necessarily have lots of colours of cardstock, die sets, embellishments etc. Each kit has a blog post and video tutorial to help you and the blog posts list the products used so you can purchase anything you don’t already have in your stash! You can browse the available card kits and PDF tutorials here.

Today’s project features the Stampin’ Up! Morning Star Stamp Set. This set really enables you to build your own scenes and they can be as simple or complicated as you want.

If you would prefer to watch me create 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 Whisper White Thick cardstock and this is followed by a layer of Whisper White cardstock. I have used the foliage stamps to create a background using Pear Pizzazz ink. The small flower is then stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink.

The foliage star is also stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink onto Whisper White cardstock and the large flower is stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink. This is then cut out using the coordinating Stitched Stars die. This is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangle dies. The small foliage stamp is used to decorate the sentiment piece and it is adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
