Eclipse with Nature’s Roots Framelits ?

I received a card in a swap a few weeks ago. The technique used on the card probably has a name but I don’t know it. It’s something like the eclipse technique but not exactly. I used the Nature’s Roots Framelits for my version.

What do you think? Maybe it should be called reverse eclipse?

Design Notes for Nature’s Roots Framelits Card:

Here’s how I made this card.

First, I cut the tree from the Mossy Meadow card stock using the Nature’s Roots Framelits.Rooted in Nature stamp set, Nature's Roots Framelits, Heat embossing, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

Next, I placed the piece of Mossy Meadow on my Stamparatus.

The next step was to place the stamp in the opening.

Now, to close the plate to pick up the stamp in just the right place.

Finally, remove the Mossy Meadow piece and replace with the piece to be stamped on. The stamp is in just the right place.

Now, wasn’t that easy?

Once I inked up the stamp, I replaced the Mossy Meadow ink with some Early Espresso on the trunk, using a Stampin’ Write Marker.

The last thing to know is that after I heat embossed, I added the Mossy Meadow Layer to the stamped layer with Foam Adhesive Strips. So easy.

Abstract Impressions Thanks

Each month I try to send my customers a thank you note. Of course, I make the card! This month, I need quite a few and decided to make my own Designer Paper with the Abstract Impressions stamp set. (I’m not sure why since we have so many beautiful Designer Papers that are on sale this month!) Nonetheless, I thought it came out pretty nicely.

This week’s challenge over at Global Design Project is a color challenge. I think it’s a perfect combination.

Design Notes for Abstract Impressions Card:

I knew I would need quite a bit of my home grown Designer Paper so I started out with a 12″ x 12″ sheet of Whisper White Card Stock.

http://www.global-design-project.com

For the flowers, I first stamped off with some Grapefruit Grove ink. For the next layer I used the same color but did not stamp off first. With this technique, it appears as though I’ve used two different colors. But, now you know my secret.

The beautiful Fresh Fig butterfly was cut with one of the dies from the Springtime Impressions Dies set. This die set coordinates with the Abstract Impressions stamp set. It’s a great bundle! Buy the bundle, save 10%!

Broadway Birthday Gift Bag and Card!

Confession time – when I first looked at the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, Broadway Birthday was not on my Wish List. And believe me, my Wish List was pretty long! But, for the month of June, the Paper Pumpkin kit featured stamps and projects that coordinate with the Broadway Bound Suite. (See my cards and scrap book projects here.)  That was all I needed. The Broadway Bound Suite items moved to the top of my list! I recently saw a video that Ronda Wade made where she demonstrated how to create a gift bag and card from two pieces of designer series paper. It seemed perfect for this paper. What a fun project.

Design Notes for Broadway Birthday Gift Bag:

The bag went together so quickly! There was a piece of paper left over for a card. I saved it for another time and used a different paper from the same package, Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper. The coordinating Framelits, Broadway Lights,  made it easy to cut out the “Wish” and marquee pieces. I finished off the “Wish” with the stamped  “Make A” and one of the Candle Embellishments. The Candle Embellishments are so cute and even have adhesive on the back.

Climbing Orchid for Global Design Project

This has been a busy week. All week long, I kept thinking about the challenge over at Global Design Project. The sample is beautiful. I really liked the colors and layout and so decided as soon as I had a chance, I’d work on designing something. I love the Climbing Orchid stamp set and determined to use that  as the centerpiece of the card.

Here’s the sample from Global Design Project for this week. It’s beautiful, isn’t it? Hop on over and see all the samples. Global Design Project image, #GDP144

 

Design Notes for Climbing Orchid Card:

I loved that Charlet used both Very Vanilla and Whisper White card stock on her card. The Very Vanilla provides a soft background and the Whisper White lets the center piece pop. Well, I more or less did the same thing on my card. To add some shine for this one I chose to use the Champagne Foil. I used some Rich Razzleberry ink on Petal Pink card stock for one of the background pieces. The Sheet Music background stamp is one of my favorites. I sponged both of the Whisper White pieces and the Petal Pink Sheet Music piece to add a soft touch. And did you notice the piece of  Delightfully Detailed Laser cut Specialty Paper in the background? That paper is so versatile.

The Sheet Music background stamp comes in either wood mount or clear mount. I, personally, prefer the wood mount for large stamp. But, it’s really personal preference.

World Giraffe Day with Animal Outing

It’s true.Today is World Giraffe Day. I decided to celebrate this amazing animal by making a card with the Animal Outing stamp set. It’s the first time I used this set and I’m in love!

Animal Outing stamp set, Animal Expedition DSP, Animal Friends Framelits, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

Can that giraffe be any cuter?

Design Notes for Animal Outing Card:

This stamp set is part of a suite of products, the Animal Expedition Suite. The Animal Friends Framelits dies helped me cut out the cute giraffe. The Leaf Ribbon was just too tempting for me. I had to offer the sweet giraffe something to eat! I embossed the Shaded Spruce card stock with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder, a faithful standby from last year’s catalog. Here’ a look at the stamp set. I know you will see more of this. I have already stamped, colored and cut the kangaroo!

Animal Outing stamp set, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.comReally, this stamp set even makes a rhino look adorable!

I think my favorite part of the card is the inside. First I stamped then sentiment, then stamped off a few leaves with Shaded Spruce ink. Then, using Glue Dots, I added a bit of the Leaf Ribbon. Almost too much cuteness!
