Paper Pieced Card for PP438

Ready for a paper pieced teapot card? It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

Paper Pieced Teapot CardThis week, Anne Marie has a Clean and Simple challenge for us:  Paper Piecing.  How fun is that!

Paper Piece Teapot cardBy Clean and Simple, we mean minimal layers and embellishments, plenty of white space, and simple, uncluttered cards. I may have struck out with the minimal layers, but today’s card does have plenty of white space and minimal embellishments.  I hope you enjoy it!

This card is so easy to make! The Needlepoint Nook Designer Paper collection has an adorable pattern which reminded me of Delft pottery.  After stamping the image in Night of Navy ink onto the designer paper,  I put the paper snips to work.  I could have used the Tea Time Framelits dies to die cut it, but I didn’t want paper to show around the stamped edge.  However,  I did use the framelit to cut the teapot from Whisper White cardstock to serve as the base for my paper piece.

paper pieced teapot cardThe grid patterned panel is from the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper collection.  I probably should have left it off to keep the card “cleaner”,  but I thought it and the Pearlized Doily really stepped the card up a notch.

Pink Horse Card for Festive Friday

Searching for a pink and pearled horse card? Guess what I created for this week’s Festive Friday Challenge: Mother’s Day and/or Pink!

horse cardNow you may be wondering how a horse card fits into Mother’s Day.   My mother loved horses.  In fact, we had 30 horses on the farm when I was growing up.   I actually showed horses from the time I was in elementary school through college.  I know my mother would have loved getting this card for Mother’s Day…and it is dedicated to her memory.

This beautiful horse was easy to watercolor. I used Aqua Painters and Balmy Blue, Basic Gray, Old Olive, and Smokey Slate inks. Using Shimmery White card stock adds visible sparkle.  Plus, I added more shimmer to the mane and tail with Clear Wink of Stella.

Colorful Thank You Card for PP437

Is a pearl bedecked, colorful thank you card in your future? It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

colorful thank you cardThis week I have the pleasure of hosting the color challenge at The Paper Players.  I thought a trio of Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight would be perfect for creating spring cards. I had fun creating this colorful thank you card, and I hope you enjoy it.

colorful thank you cardThe Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

This card is not one which can be created quickly.  However, if you have a little time on your hands, it is a fun card to make.  It involves using the Stamparatus “hinge step” technique to stamp the images which are found in the larger “windows”.

colorful thank you cardThe other windows were paper pieced using Balmy Blue cut-outs created from a second Florentine die cut.  Of course, I absolutely had to add pearls to the center of each.

colorful thank you cardThe circular focal point involved stamping the image three times in the challenge colors, and using Layering Circles framelits to cut them out.  A Clear Faceted Gem, surrounded by pearls, adds sparkle.

Fable Friends Bunny Easter Card for On the CASE

Who doesn’t love an adorable bunny card at Easter? You can make your own in this week’s On the CASE with Ann & Nicole!

Bunny Easter CardWhile I continue to break down samples from current Stampin’ Up!® catalogs, my On the CASE partner, Nicole, is using her investigative skills to solve CASES throughout the crafting universe. Let the fun begin!

Bunny Easter Card
Occasions Catalog Page 27

bunny easter cardWhile absolutely adorable, I really didn’t have a need for this Easter basket. However, I did need an Easter card to send to my son, Brady. Even at the age of 30, he loves “cute”, and I knew he would love a Bunny Easter card. So I set off to create one using this basket as my inspiration.

Bunny Easter cardNow this poor little card has been through the mill.  Unfortunately it was the victim of a canine card attack.  It seems a certain little someone has a thing about ribbons, and I guess the Calypso Coral ribbon was calling his name.

bunny easter cardDon’t let this innocent face fool you…

Bunny Easter CardGQ is indeed guilty.  So if you notice a  few ripples at the bottom of the watercolored panel, it’s because I cut it off the original card,  ironed it, reused it and recreated everything else.  I wished I would have snapped a few pictures of GQ’s distressing technique.  I’m sure there is a lesson to be learned. I hope you enjoy today’s card!

Floral Hello Card for PP436

Who says you can’t use plaid Christmas paper for a spring floral “Hello” card? It’s Sunday, and at The Paper Players we are Mad for Plaid!

Floral Hello CardThis week, the talented LeAnne is hosting our theme challenge:  Plaids or Checks (as the focus of your project).  While I could have pulled out the oh-so-springy Gingham Gala designer paper, I still had some plaid paper from the Under the Mistletoe collection which I thought would pair nicely with the Wonderful Romance set. I hope you enjoy today’s card!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

One of my “go-to” layouts is placing a focal image on a stitched circle, and then adding a banner sentiment. I know you have seen me use this layout many, many times.  It’s an old friend of mine, and I feel quite comfortable with it.  Once again, I found myself gravitating to it.

floral hello cardI used the Wonderful Romance bundle, and watercolored the images using an Aqua Painter and inks.  The colors I used are listed in the tutorial.  The brighter foliage was achieved by using Daffodil Delight ink.  The Fresh Fig blossoms have just a touch of Daffodil Delight in their centers, which is hidden by rhinestones. However, you can clearly see that I added a few speckles, which gives them a touch of realism.  Please note:  While the Wonderful Floral framelits dies are not available, the Wonderful Romance stamp set is!  Plus, there are several lovely floral sets with framelits which would work equally well with this layout.  Don’t be afraid to experiment!

floral hello cardI also broke up the greenery slightly by adding Fresh Fig “sprigs”.   Of course, I couldn’t resist adding a Highland Heather butterfly.  This one reminds me a little of the small purple ones which used to be so prevalent during springtime in Iowa.

floral hello cardWhen I have a more complex and “busy” focal point, I like to keep the sentiments “cleaner”.  A simple “hello”, from the Beauty Abounds stamp set,  was all that was needed to complete this card.

Rainbow Card for Earth Day

Looking for a rainbow Earth Day card?  Festive Friday is back with another challenge…and an expanded design team!

Rainbow Earth Day cardThis week we are celebrating Earth Day with a Rainbow twist!  I struggled with rainbow colors a few weeks ago when The Paper Players had their rainbow color challenge.  I think I become too literal, and feel like I have to put ROY G BIV out there in its pure form. At any rate, I seized upon today’s opportunity to create a rainbow Earth Day card using the nifty Layering Alphabet Edgelits! Enjoy!

Rainbow Earth Day CardColors of the Day

rainbow earth day

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

I’ll admit it.  I thought the Layering Alphabet Edgelits looked scary.  I had great ideas when I bought them, but they sat unused for months.  As I racked my brain for ideas for this challenge, I knew they would be perfect for creating a rainbow Earth Day card.  I just needed to get over my fear of them.  Stampin’ Up!  had a great video, and as I discovered, they are not scary at all!

After creating the layers, I die cut dotted letters from the various 6″ x  6″ Designer Series Paper color collections, adhering them on top of their cardstock counterparts. The words “happy” and “day” were die cut using the Well Written framelits.

rainbow Earth Day cardI felt this bold card could use a bold flower to offset the letters. The Daisy punch came to the rescue! Three blossoms were punched from Gorgeous Grape cardstock, and layered.  Of course, a bold flower calls for bold bling.

      Storage by Stampin' Up!Storage by Stampin’ Up! Q&A

      Will old-design Stampin’ Pads fit in the Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays?  No. The Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays are designed to fit our new-design Stampin’ Pads only.

      How high can I stack storage trays?  We stacked up to 50 storage trays without any issues, BUT we would not recommend stacking that high. While our Storage by Stampin’ Up! products are sturdy, the higher you stack them, the less stable they’ll become. Use your discretion when stacking.

      Can I mount my Storage by Stampin’ Up! products on the wall?  No. Our modular storage products are designed to sit on a table (or similar flat surface).

      How should I use the Open Storage Cube?  The Open Storage Cube can be used to hold any miscellaneous items like ribbon, embellishments, and small punches. For more inspiration on ways to use items from our Storage by Stampin’ Up! product line, check out the configuration chart we created.

      Can I mix and match Storage by Stampin’ Up! products?  Yes! Our Storage by Stampin’ Up! products are modular and designed with customization in mind. Take a look at the flyer for more information on the size and dimensions of each item in our new modular storage product line.

      Do I need a Storage Lid for each 5-tray stack?  No. The Storage Lid covers the top of Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays, Stampin’ Blends Storage Trays, and Open Storage Cubes, so you need only one per storage configuration.

      Are Storage by Stampin’ Up! products free-standing or stacked?  Both. We designed these modular storage products to be free-standing and stackable, so you can customize your crafting space to work best for you.

      How many Stampin’ Ink Refills can I store in the Storage Topper?  You can store up to 20 Stampin’ Ink Refills (or other small items) in the Storage Topper.

      Are ink pads difficult to remove from Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays?  No. When you insert an ink pad into a storage tray, a small portion of the ink pad will stick out. We designed it this way, so your ink pads will be both secure and easy to access.

      Can I buy individual Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays and/or Stampin’ Blends Storage Trays?  No. Both of these items include a set of five white plastic trays. Please use the configuration chart to determine how many storage units you need.

      What material do you use to make Storage by Stampin’ Up! products?  Our modular storage products are made with white, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic, which is a lightweight and durable material.
