Color Your World International Blog Hop
Petal Garden Happy Birthday Card

 International Stampin' Up! Blog Hop

The months go so quickly and it is hard to believe it is October already and time for another Color Your World International Blog Hop.  This is where you get to travel around the world without leaving your seat and be inspired by some of the Top Stampin' Up! Demonstrators around the globe. 

 

Color Your World International Blog Hop October 2017

Some months can be a real challenge, this month was one of those months.  The colors just didn't hit me and aren't typically the colors that I am drawn to.  I will admit that paring them with my favorite designer paper proved to be a success.  I am in love!

The color challenge this month included

  • Always Artichoke
  • Old Olive
  • Sahara Sand
  • Sweet Sugarplum

Card Measurements & Details...

I love the intricate detail that the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder gives to this card.  Embossing folders can add such great dimension and detail to a card.   The card base is Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock (4-1/4" x 11") I often make my sample cards top fold as they are much easier to photograph.  If you want your card to open side fold just use 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" cardstock folded in half. 

The sentiment Happy Birthday (from Butterfly Basics stamp set) is stamped in Always Artichoke Classic Ink on a piece of Sahara Sand (3" x 4-1/4") and layered on a piece of Old Olive (3-1/4" x 4-1/2").  

The Petal Garden Designer Paper (2-1/2" x2-1/2") is layered on a piece of Always Artichoke cardstock (3" x 3").

Sunday Sketches SS003 Foxy Friends Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

As I sit in my stamping room, occasionally I will see a little red fox running up our driveway.  We have had the fortune of having the entire family play in our backyard.  Sometimes we are awoken in the wee hours of the night by little pups yelping they can make quite a rack.

Today's card was inspired by the hopes that someday one will sit under our pine tree just like the card.  The Foxy Friends Stamp Set &  Fox Builder Punch makes it so easy to create so my critters beyond the fox.   You can create cats, skunks, squirrels, raccoons, pandas, reindeer and the list goes on and on.

I had so much fun creating the first round of Sunday Sketches and even more fun seeing how different the two cards are using the same sketch. 

Click Here to see the other card made using the SS003 card sketch.

While both cards use the same sketch the cards have a totally different look.  You can use the same sketch over and over with different stamps sets, paper and ink colors to create totally different cards.

Border Buddies - Quilted Christmas isn't just for Christmas!

Hello Stampers,

It's Border Buddy Saturday today, Patsy here.  The Quilt Builder Thinlits Dies are not just for Christmas.  In the Holiday Catalog, the Quilted Christmas Stamp Set & the coordinating Quilt Builder Thinlits are surrounded by Christmas paper and colors which makes one think only of Christmas.  However, if you change up the colors and designer paper you have a stamp set and thinlits for any occasion. 

Border Budday Saturday Hope Card Quilted Builder Framelits Dies & Petal Garden Designer Series Paper  by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 3

Here is a great example of a card that doesn't say Christmas at all.   This unique design was inspired by the sample in the Holiday Catalog.  

Quilt Builder Thinlits Dies by Stampin' Up!

To achieve the outline 6 petal flower I took the die on the left and then placed the die on the right in the center and ran it through the big shot.  This gave me the thin outline flowers and the 6 petals.  I placed the outline flower on the cardstock and then placed the cut out petals inside with a glue dot, then I removed the outline flower which left just the petals.    

Border Budday Saturday Hope Card Quilted Builder Framelits Dies & Petal Garden Designer Series Paper  by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 2

I used my favorite color Calypso Coral along with my favorite designer paper Petal Garden.   I placed a piece of Cardstock Vellum on top of the pattern paper to give it a unique layer look.   I cut out "hope" from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Die and Big Shot and applied with dimensionals.  The card is finished off with one of the Gold Binder Clips and tied some of the Calypso Coral Ombre Ribbon in a bow on the binder. 

There are so many possibilities with this versatile stamp set and dies.

Just in CASE - Quilted Christmas Suite by Stampin' Up!

It's time for another CASE (copy and share everything) card.  I have so much fun creating Just in CASE cards.  I like to use different stamp sets to show how you don't always need the exact same thing.  Sometimes it is hard when you see a card you love to substitute the stamp set or even colors.

The project in the catalog is one of the small pizza boxes decorated for gift giving. The boxes are 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" and food-safe with a protective coating inside so if you want to share a hand baked cookie the grease won't bleed through the box and mess up your decorative work.

Instead of the pizza box, I created a 3" x 3" card.  We have offered 3 x 3 note cards in the past with envelopes and I am excited to let you know that in the Holiday Catalog we have the envelopes.  It is easy to create the card by just cutting a 3" x 6" piece of Whisper White cardstock and folding it in half.

Notice the silver starburst mat around the circle.  I punched this out with the New Starburst Punch - Love It!!! I know I love everything.   That is maybe why I have been a demo/stamper for 20 years now, can't get enough of it.
