Painted Harvest Meets Buffalo Check

In this month’s class, the Painted Harvest and Buffalo Check stamps combine to create the cheerful card shown below.  The classic “go together colors of  yellow (So Saffron)  and blue (Night of Navy)  unite to create a beautiful color palette.   

Painted Harvest meets Buffalo Check

Stamp the So Saffron card base with the splotch stamp from the Timeless Textures stamp set using the matching ink.  It creates an interesting background texture for the Night of Navy Buffalo Check.   Use Daffodil Classic Ink Pad to stamp the largest layer twice – re-ink and rotate the stamp each time.  Ink the smaller sunflower stamp with  Soft Saffron Classic Ink Pad to add color depth to the flower image.  Stamp off the Night of Navy center before stamping the inside of the flower.  Stamp and punch three sets of leaves from Pear Pizzazz.  For additional interest, use the Sprig Punch (offered in the Holiday Catalog) to cut the vellum paper background pieces.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set.  Finish the creation with a Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon bow.

TIP: The Buffalo Check stamp set is a large background stamp so I recommend using the Stamparatus when stamping to ensure even coverage of ink.

Frosted Shimmer

First of all, this card I am sharing with you today is a beautiful frosted shimmer. The shimmer does not show through pictures.  It features the Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper (DSP) which is part of the Frosted Floral Suite in the Holiday Catalog.  The card is also one of the samples that attendees made at this month’s card class.  Furthermore, the paper is “Shimmery” and while you really cannot appreciate it in the photograph, it’s amazing.  Seriously, the photos really do not do it justice and all of the paper in the package is simply gorgeous.  

Frosted Floral

So do you see the frosted shimmer?  Because of the glare, It may be a bit difficult to see.  Create the card using The First Frost Stamp set and Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies.  Both are offered in the First Frost Bundle while saving you 10%.  Do you notice the Soft Suede frame is askew?  Frame is cut using the Frosted Bouquet dies and attached to sentiment layer using dots of multipurpose liquid glue.  It also adds an unexpected dimension to the card.  Remember, all project materials can be found under Project Materials at the end of the post. 

 Also, you will have the opportunity to see so many more samples like this in my 12 Weeks of Christmas holiday promotion.

CASE the Catalog – Country Lane Suite

Happy Monday and time for CASE the Catalog featuring the Country Lane Suite from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog (page 42-43).  The suite of products offers lots of options using the Country Home Photopolymer stamp set, the Country Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP), the Tin Tile Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF), as well as, the different embellishments.  The project that I recreated uses the Chicken Wire Elements and the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF to add an extra touch to the card.  There are so many wonderful suites in the Holiday Catalog, it’s hard to select which is my favorite but this suite is one that will definitely get lots of use! 

CASE the Catalog - Country Lane Suite

Materials:
  • Mint Macaron card base: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ (score at 4-1/4″)
  • Country Lane DSP: 4-1/2″ x 2-1/4″
  • Whisper White:  3″ x 4-1/4″ for front, 5-1/4″ x 4″ for interior, small scrap for stamping Hello
  • Chicken Wire Elements: 4-1/2″ x 2″  – NOTE: cut in 1/2 before attaching to card front
  • Ink: Memento Black, Crumb Cake
  • Stampin’ Blends: Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss, Smoky Slate, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake
  • Everyday Label Punch (to cut notches on edges of the Whisper White front piece)
CASE the Catalog Steps:
  1. Use the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF to texture emboss the card front and then using Sponge Dauber lightly sponge the front using Crumb Cake ink.
  2. Stamp the milk can image and the floral spray onto the Whisper White card front using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – NOTE: stamp off center toward right as shown on sample.
  3. Color the image using the blends.  Swish Crumb Cake below the milk can. You may spritz color below the milk can or add dots  (as I did) using the tip end of the Soft Suede Stampin’ Blend.  Stamp sentiment and color with Cajun Craze stampin’ blend, then fussy cut to add to front of milk can.
  4. Assemble card by layering the Country Lane DSP and adding the Chicken Wire Element pieces at an angle ensuring that pieces will extend past the stamped image layer.
  5. Add the stamped image layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
