Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop...3-D Projects


AWOW hop header

Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop!  Today on this international blog hop there are 22 stops.  You will hop from New Zealand to Hawaii with lots of stops and time zones in between.  The theme for this month is 3D projects.  

TeaBag-AWOW3Dbag

I love a fun bag and so I used the All Dressed Up die and the True Love DSP to create this one.  I will warn you, I generally try and use just one or 2 stamp sets or dies on a project but on today's project I went a little wild and just pulled dies from lots of different sets.  I wanted to up the cute a little so I made some bag charms to dress up my tote.

TeaBag-AWOWcharms

The fun tassel was created by cutting a 1" strip of DSP and then cutting 3/4" or so slits the length of the DSP.  I then rolled it up and glued as I rolled to form the tassel.  The little Magenta Madness butterfly was cut using the  Butterfly Beauty dies and attached it to a little black circle.  The heart was cut using the Snail dies and mounted on the tag from the Hydrangea dies.   I added some Shimmer Crystal Effects to the heart and oh I love the shine, dimension, and the little bit of glitter it adds.

TeaBag-AWOWbag&box

This is  a teabag.  It holds the 3-1/8" x 3-1/8" Acetate Card box filled with color coordinating tea.  Yes, I bought this tea because of the color.  Do you ever do that?  The acetate box holds 4 teabags and fits perfectly in the tote.  

TeaBag-AWOWboxflowers

I wrapped a 2-1/4" strip of the DSP around the acetate box.  The white ribbon is from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo pack.  I do like this ribbon a lot, it ties nice crisp bows.  I added a few flowers that were cut using the Pierced Blooms dies.  I added the Shimmer Crystal Effects to the center of each flower.  

I hope you liked my TeaBag!  Now it is time to hop on over to see what the talented Teri West has created for you!

Around the Word on Wednesday Blog Hop...Favorite Inspiration

AWOW hop header

Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop.  We are an international group of Stampin' Up!® demonstrators here to share ideas and inspiration.  This month the theme is Favorite Inspiration.

This theme really made me think.  What does inspire me?  In the past I think I would have said magazines.  I still have a few old stamping and scrapbook magazines that I  look through on occasion but now that I think about it, I haven't looked through one in months.  I was going to say my stamps and paper are inspirational but often it is because I have new stamps and paper that I need to be inspired.  I reflected on my process and I realize it is my box of cards I have collected over the years both handmade and store bought that I look through when I need to be inspired.  I look through this beat up plastic container and always find a color combination, fold or layout that sparks an idea.  There are other ways I am inspired but I think this collection of ideas is the one I turn to the most.  Now that I think of it I should treat these projects more respectfully and find a nicer container for them.

AWOW-Jan21

This is the card I pulled out of my box of ideas. I do not  remember the name of this stamp set or how old it is.  I do know that I had a class using this stamp set and this was one of the cards.  I have always liked this kind of sampler style layout.

SnailedIt-AWOW-card

This is what I came up with using the Snailed It bundle.  You can see the similarities between the 2 cards and how one inspired the other.  

The card base is 4-1/4" x 9-1/2" scored at 5-1/2".  The snail and the "hellos" were die cut from the Snail Mail DSP using the Snail dies.  I love that the hello is in different languages.  I thought it perfect for this international hop.  The little envelopes were stamped and then cut out using the die.  The little hearts are the Resin Hearts.  The hearts come in Real Red and Whisper White.  I colored the white heart using a Bermuda Bay (Dark) Stampin' Blend.  Isn't that good to know?  The little mushrooms were also die cut using the Snail dies in Bermuda Bay, Blushing Bride and Real Red.  

SnailedIt-AWOW-card2

Inside is a little heart that was die cute from the Snail Mail DSP.  It was originally going to go on the front of the card but it didn't fit, so I added it to the inside.   I am not adding a sentiment to the inside yet.  I think this card would work for lots of different occasions.  I hope it will brighten someone's day.  

Now it is time to see what inspires the talented Teri West.

ICS Blog Hop...Flower & Field DSP

ICS header

Welcome to the first Inspire, Create, Share blog hop of 2021!  This month we are hopping and sharing lot of ideas using Sale-A-Bration products.  In 2021 there will be two Sale-A-Bration periods, January -February and again in July-August.  During Sale-A-Bration you can choose a free gift from the Sale-A-Bration brochure with a qualifying order.  I am using two Sale-A-Bration choices on my project, Flower & Field DSP and the Heal Your Heart stamp set.  Both of these choices are level 1 choices which mean they are free with a $50 purchase (US).

HealYourHeart-ICSHop-1

Love the Flower & Field DSP.  The flowers and colors just pop against the black background.  So many pretty flowers that I had to fussy cut some of them to decorate the sentiment panel.  

What do you think of the Heal Your Heart font?  I think it is beautiful and would love to be able to write like this.  

HealYourHeart-ICSHop-2

I think this fold is called a Double Dutch fold.  

Main card base is 4-1/4" x  9" scored at 5-1/2" 

The arms are 2" x 8-1/2" scored at 2-1/8" on either end.  You attach these arms to the card base and then cover them up with the layers inside of the card.  

The rest is just layering.  Like most fun folds it looks more difficult than it actually is.

HealYourHeart-ICSHop-3

I added a couple more flowers that were fussy cut from the DSP, along with another strip of DSP. 

Now it is time for you to hop on over to see what the talented Anastasia has created for you.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop...Something New!

StampingInkspiration hop

Welcome to the very first Stamping Inkspiration blog hop!  I am excited to be a part of this fabulous group.  The theme for our first hop is Something New, a very appropriate theme for our first hop.  There are 35 stops on this hop (WOW!) so grab your favorite drink and hop along with us!

InBloom-Inkspiration-1hop

My project uses the In Bloom bundle in the 2021 January-June Mini Catalog and the coordinating DSP, Paper Blooms from the 2021 Jan-Feb Sale-A-Bration catalog.   The In Bloom bundle has been on my craft table from the first day I received it.  I love the piercing detail of the dies and the sentiments in the stamp set are ones I will use a lot.

InBloom-Inkspiration-2

The Paper Bloom DSP is such a happy pack of paper.  The colors and blooms  are so cheery and it is one of the Sale-A-Bration choices which means it is free with a qualifying order.  In the Sale-A-Bration brochure  it says it coordinates with the Pretty Perennials bundle but it coordinates more closely with the In Bloom bundle.

InBloom-Inkspirationhop-3

The middle panel lifts up to reveal another sentiment and a place for you to write a little note.  

Now it is time to check out what the talented Cheryl Miller  has created for you.

New at SU...Fireside Trimmings

NewatSUbanner

It is time for the New at SU! Hop Through!  This month the theme is Warm and Cozy.  What comes to mind when you think of being warm and cozy?    The first thing that came to my mind was sitting by the fireplace, so I turned to the Firside Trimmings bundle for my card.  This bundle is being retired (no longer available after January 4, 2021 or while supplies last) on the Year-End Close Out list and the dies are 30% off.  

FiresideTrimmings-New

I have really enjoyed creating with the Fireside Trimmings stamp set and dies.   The stamp set is adorable but it was the different banners in the Fireside dies that really made me happy.  I have said it before...the bat garland!  For today's card I used both the greenery and the star banners along with the lanterns and the trees to decorate the mantel.  The fireplace was stamped on a sheet from the In Good Taste DSP pack and cut out using the dies.  I used a piece of Plush Poinsettia Specialty paper  (also on the Year-End closeout) for the "wallpaper", just to be fancy.  

FiresideTrimmings-New-up

You know I love an easel card.  This one measures 2-1/8" wide, just a smidge narrower than the fireplace.  The Basic Black CS measures 2-1/8" x 6", scored at 2-1/8" and 5-3/8".  

FiresideTrimmings-New-side

Now it is time for you to hop on to see what the creative  Mary Ann Kay has created for you!

Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop...Something New, Something Old

AWOW hop header

Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop!  We have a total of 21 stops on the hop!  We are an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators  here to share some ideas and inspiration.   Our theme this month is Something New, Something Old.    So hop along with us and share in the fun

Our leader, Angie McKenzie does a fantastic job of leading this blog hop and comes up with fun and thought provoking themes.  For my project I decided to focus on one of my favorite new suites in the upcoming 2021 January-June Mini Catalog for my Something New and a product that I miss, for my Something Old.

ArtGallery-AWOW

This beautiful stamped image and Designer Series Paper is from the Fine Art Floral Suite.  The stamp set is called Art Gallery and it can be bundled with a set of dies called Floral Gallery dies.  Remember when you bundle you save 10%.  This whole suite is gorgeous.   Can you guess what my something old is?  It is Dazzling Diamonds Glitter!  I realize that glitter is not very environmentally friendly and can be very messy, once in  awhile I miss the sparkle of Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  

ArtGallery-AWOW-side

One of my favorite techniques is to cover an entire image with Versamark ink and then heat emboss it with a mix of Dazzling Diamonds glitter and Clear embossing powder.  It is a little difficult to capture how sparkly it.  I wish i could because it is so pretty.  The flower was stamped using Flirty Flamingo ink for the flower and Old Olive for the stem.  The Art Gallery stamp set does not have a stamp for the inside of the flower.  I did a little search and found that the Beautiful Friendship set has 2 images that would work for the center.  On  my card I used the smaller of the 2.  

ArtGallery-AWOW-glitter

One last attempt to capture the glittery images.  The ribbon I used is 3/8" Denim and the sentiment is from the Zoo Globe set.

FineArtFloralDSP-AWOW

The Fine Art Floral DSP is very special.  Doesn't it look like there is a lot of texture?  The artists did a great job creating this DSP, it looks like oil paintings.  The DSP has a highly patterned side and the flip side is a little more neutral.  

FIneArtFloralDSP-AWOW-side

The only thing stamped on this card is the sentiment which is a part of the Art Gallery stamp set.  The card base is Pretty Peacock.  It is not listed as one of the colors in the DSP but I think it blends so well. 

FineArtFloralDSP-AWOW-glitter

I hope you can see the Dazzling Diamonds glitter and Clear Embossing powder effect.  

It was very fun to give you a sneak peek of this beautiful bundle and for me to play with Dazzling Diamonds glitter again.  Now it is time for you to go and see what the talented Teri West has created for you!

ICS Blog Hop...Butterfly Gala

ICS header

Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop.  This month the theme is Thankfully Yours.  We can all use thank you cards, right?  I hope you won't be disappointed but the only thing I am using from the Butterfly Gala set is one of the sentiments.  My idea was to share a quick and easy card and also give you a little sneak peek of what's coming in January.  

 

ICS-Dec20-1

This thank you note uses the DSP and a sticker from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.  The card base is 4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2".  The Real Red layer is 3-1/4" x 4" and the DSP is 3" x 3-7/8".  The DSP is then cut to 3 strips measuring 1" x 3-7/8".  The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala set stamped on Whisper White CS and cut out using the Stitched Rectangle dies.  The Whisper White layer is 4" x 5-1/4" embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3-D embossing folder.  Love the Real Red Sheer ribbon!

OrnateGarden-ICS

This one uses the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP found in the 2020-21 Annual Catalog.  Love this fresh floral with Early Espresso and the super cute Gingham Bumblebee ribbon.

Flower&Field-ICS-2

The next cards all use the Flower & Field DSP.  Where do you find this DSP?  This DSP will be available during Sale-A-Bration.  This year Sale-A-Bration is a little different.  There will actually be 2 Sale-A-Brations!  Double the fun and free gifts!  The first Sale-A-Bration period is January & February 2021 and this lovely paper is one of the free gifts with a $50 purchase. This is one of those packs of paper that I love both sides of the paper.  There are fun floral designs on one side and the other more classic patterns like polka dots, stripes, chevrons.  

Flower&FIeld-ICS

Don't you love the florals and the polka dots?  The colors in the Flower & Field DSP pack include Basic Black, Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Just Jade, Misty Moonlight, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Shaded Spruce and So Saffron.  Lots of beautiful colors that all play well with each other.

Flower&FieldDSP-panels

I love this color combination of Basic Black and Pool Party.   So fresh and happy!

Flower&Field-ICS-3

Simple thank you cards that spotlight the beautiful patterned paper.  These cards come together quickly, the hardest part is deciding which one to use and that is a great problem to have.

Now it is time for you to check out what the talented Deb Naylor has created for you!

Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop...The World Around Us

AWOW hop header

Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop!  We have a total of 23 stops on this hop!  We are an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators  here to share some ideas and inspiration.   Our theme this month is the World Around Us.  This can mean many things and each of us will have a different take on what that means.  So hop along with us and share in the fun.

Today  is a very blustery day here in the Pacific Northwest and there are leaves falling and swirling all around.  This was my inspiration for my card and what is happening in the World Around Me.

ASID-AWOW-Oct

I used the Gilded Autumn  Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Autumn Punch Pack for the leaves.  All the leaves are from the DSP and except for the 2 small leaves were punched out using the leaf punches in the Autumn Punch Pack.   The 2 small leaves were fussy cut out from the DSP.  The leaves that have foil accents were colored using the Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends (Light).  

The Very Vanilla CS was embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D folder.  This folder like the Subtle 3D folder adds texture but isn't distracting.  It reminds me of the texture of watercolor paper.  

ASID-AWOW-Octside

The Playful Alphabet Dies and four different patterns of DSP were used to cut out FALL.  The DSP was put on a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet and cut out using the dies.  The Foam Adhesive Sheet is roughly the thickness of Stampin' Dimensionals.  One of the nice things about the Playful Alphabet Dies is there are multiple dies for some of the letters. 

Inside of the card I added a strip of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and  a leaf and an acorn from the DSP and punched out using the Autumn Punch Pack. 

Now it is time for you to hop on and see what the talented Teri West has made for you.  I wonder what is happening in the World Around Her?

Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop...Autumn Days

SDBH Banner

Welcome to the Stamper's Dozen Blog hop!  Our theme this month is Autumn Days.  What comes to mind when you think about Autumn?  For some it might be pumpkins, others will think about the beauty of the leaves changing colors, and others will think of warm, comforting drinks like pumpkin spice lattes or hot apple cider.  All three of these  came to my mind and I wanted to have them all represented on my card. 

ASID-SDBH-Sept20

I started off with the Wreath Builder dies and cut wreaths in Old Olive and Mossy Meadow cardstock.  Next to represent the warm cozy drinks we associate with Autumn, the cute mugs from the Warm Hugs stamp set were stamped in Early Espresso ink and then filled in with Pumpkin Pie ink (the image is a 2 step).  The mug image was cut out using the coordinating Warm Wraps dies (yes this is a bundle!).  A Gold Glitter Enamel Dot was added to each mug to add a little shine.

Tucked behind each mug is a pretty leaf from the Beautiful Autumn set stamped in Early Espresso ink on Bumblebee cardstock.  The image was colored by first inking the stamp in Bumblebee ink and then lightly inking around the edges of the leaves in Cajun Craze ink.  This inking technique is called Rock N Roll.  Some of the leaves were stamped off once before stamping in the leaf (outline) creating a slightly different look.  The leaves were punched out using the Autumn Punch Pack (together this is the Beautiful Autumn bundle). 

The last thing I needed were tiny pumpkins.  This was the trickiest one.  The pumpkins needed to be pretty small so after looking through my stamp sets I found an image that would work.  Can you guess the stamp set?  Fireside Trimmings to the rescue!  There is a stamped image that has 3 pumpkins I stamped it 4 times in Early Espresso ink and colored them using Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends.   I fussy cut out the smallest of  the pumpkins.  Thank goodness for my Paper Snips!  

My wreath needed a bow.  I cut the bow in the Wreath Builder die in Pumpkin Pie cardstock and applied a Gold Glitter Enamel Dot to the center.  

ASID-SDBH-Sept20side

The next thing I needed to find was a sentiment.  This sentiment is in the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.  Pretty perfect for my card once i got over that it was found in a Christmas greeting set.  The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso ink on Whisper White Cardstock and the cut out using a Stitched Rectangle die.  I anchored the sentiment with more leaves and a mug.  

Are you wondering what patterned paper pack was used for the card?  This design is from the World of Good Specialty DSP.  It was hard to use the side of the paper that doesn't have the foil accents but it felt right for the card.  The DSP is layered on Early Espresso and then on a Bumblebee card base.

Hope you liked my card celebrating Autumn Day as much as i enjoyed making it!  Time for you to check out what the rest of the design team created.

Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop...Tag Team

AWOW hop header

Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop!  We are Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the world sharing projects around a common theme.  This month the theme is Tag Team.  No we are not talking about wrestling (that was instantly what I thought of when I heard the theme!)  We are focusing on creating 2 projects that coordinate with each other.  Isn't that sooo much better than 4 sweaty wrestlers in tights?  

ASID-AWOW-SeptCard

I haven't used the Harvest Hellos stamp set and coordinating Apple Builder punch in a while.  Living in Washington State apples are a big deal.  Did you know Washington is the nation's top apple producing state?  It only makes sense that it also is the  state fruit.  Just a little trivia for you.  I paired the apple with the Heartwarming Hugs DSP.  The color palette just seemed to work and the designs fit the whole apple theme.  I will let you in on a secret, this pack of paper was not on my radar at all.  I just looked right past it so many times.  It took  a while for me to  see the  versatility of the the Heartwarming Hugs DSP and now I reach for it often.  This pack of paper has some of my favorite designs like polka dots, gingham, and stripes. 

ASID-AWOW-SeptCardopen

Both of the sentiments are from the Cute Fruit stamp set.  The Cute Fruit stamp set can be found in the Beginner Brochure.  Aren't the sentiments just a great fit with the Harvest Hellos set?  Here are the measurements of the paper I used.

  • Real Red 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (card base),  3-1/4" x 4-1/2" (cut using the Stitched So Sweetly die), 1-1/4" x 5" scored at 4" , 3' x 3" (Layering Circle die), 2" x  2-1/2" (apple)
  • Whisper White 3-1/4" x 4-1/2" (Stitched So Sweetly die),  2-3/4" x 2-3/4" (Stitched Shapes die), 3/4" x 2-3/4" (Stitched Rectangle die)
  • Heart Warming Hugs DSP 4" x 5-1/4",  2-5/8" x  3-3/4", 1" x 4"
  • Pear Pizzazz scrap pieces for 6 leaves
  • Soft Suede scrap piece for apple stem

Ready for the tag team project?

ASID-AWOW-SeptTreat

The cute Little Treat Box which is big enough to hold my treat.  Hmm, what could it be?  Let's first talk about what I used to make the treat holder.  Since I am creating a coordinating treat I used another print from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP, the same ribbon used on the card, Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack, the Harvest Hello stamp, and the Apple Builder punch.  The apple was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink on Pear Pizzazz cardstock in fact Mossy Meadow ink is the only ink pad I used for both projects.  The leaves are Mossy Meadow CS and the stem Soft Suede CS.  The sentiment is from the Beauty Abounds stamp set.  The size of the sentiment was just right.

ASID-AWOW-SeptTreatLolly

The last time I went to the store I bought some "prop" candy and this is one of the things I bought.  It was a lucky purchase since it was perfect fit for the Little Treat Box Dies.  Here are the measurements of the paper I used.

  • Heartwarming Hugs DSP 5-3/4" x 7"  (this can be cut using a 6" x 6" piece of DSP)
  • Pear Pizzazz  CS 2" x 2-1/2"
  • Mossy Meadow CS scrap for 2 leaves
  • Soft Suede CS Scrap for the stem

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop...World's Greatest

PaperPumpkinbloghop

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! We are all fans of this monthly crafting kit and want to share with you our enthusiasm for this box of fun and creativity. The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild. On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use August's Paper Pumpkin kit: World's Greatest.

ASID-PPPWorldsGreatest-ease;

I love a pretty plaid and decided to cut one of the card bases to 2 pieces measuring 4-1/8" x 5-3/8".  Why?  This gave me more plaid paper to work with. I am also a fan of stripes and when I saw the medal ribbon holder stamp I knew I had to use it.  My dilemma was I also wanted to use the trophy. So,  I stamped the striped medal holder twice, cut out the ribbon part only, and adhered it to the card front.  The trophy base fit perfectly and covered up the gap between the 2 ribbons.  The trophy was attached to the card front using dimensionals (also included in the kit). I tucked in a couple of the vellum leaf die cuts behind the trophy to act as a frame.  I attached the vellum with tiny dots of glue.  The glue is behind the trophy and  hidden by the star sequins,

ASID-PPPWorldsGreatest-easelfront

To create the stopper for the easel I cut  a tail at the end of the gold banner piece and attached it to the inside of the card with dimensionals.  On the circle I stamped in Bumblebee ink the #1 and friend in Pacific Point ink.  

ASID-PPPWorldsGreatest-easelopenside

Since I had another plaid layer I decided to make another card.

The ruffled ribbon stamp is perfect for making award ribbons.  I thought about what kind of awards I give out and came up with one that would be fun to send or give out at my next team meeting.  I made a small shaker by creating a frame from one of  the stitched rectangles designs in the kit.  I used a Stitched Rectangle die and cut out a window.  I used a clear envelope and put some stars in it and trimmed the envelope to fit behind the frame.  I closed up any open edges to prevent star leakage and attached it to the back of the frame.  I punched 2 holes near the top edge of the frame.  This is where the pin is attached to the card.  Place dimensionals around the edge of the frame except near where you punched the holes.

The sentiment is from a stamp set available to demonstrators called Stamping Your Way to the Top.  I inked the sentiment in Bumblebee ink.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White "demonstrator" was inked in Pacific Point ink and punched out using the Classic Label punch.  The ends were trimmed and placed over the Bumblebee "demonstrator" using dimensionals.   The other banner sentiment is also from the same stamp set.  

This would work fabulously using the World Greatest stamp set.  You could have a ribbon for World's Greatest friend, Teacher or #1 Friend.  

For this variation you will need:

  • stamp set (I used Stamping Your Way to the Top)
  • Bumblebee Ink Pad
  • Whisper White CS scrap
  • Stitched Rectangle dies
  • Clear Envelope
  • Classic Label punch
  • pin back
