Mountain


1- Begin by creating the mountain background scene:

Begin with the detail mountain image and stamp with Memento Black ink in the center of the Basic White Cardstock. Then clean and flip the stamp over and stamp with Smoky Slate ink off center from the first mountain range. Then ink one more time, stamp off on to scrap paper and then stamp on the cardstock off setting again. This creates depth to your mountain range.


Next, ink the detail tree image in Mossy Meadow and stamp it in the white area at the bottom of the mountains. Clean and flip the stamp over. Then ink again in Mossy Meadow and stamp off on scrap paper and then on the cardstock in the open area above the detail trees and below the mountains.


Then with a blending brushes add Mossy Meadow at the bottom and Balmy Blue at the top.

Last, with the detail cloud image stamp a couple clouds in the sky in Balmy Blue ink. Then clean and flip the stamp over, ink, stamp off and stamp on off center from the first set of clouds.


2- Stamp the lounging man image in Memento Black ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then color in with your choice of Stampin’ Blend Markers. I used Ivory and Bronze for the skin tones. Then Balmy Blue for the shirt, Mossy Meadow for the shorts, So Saffron & Ivory for the hat, and Smoky Slate for the chair. Then fussy cut out, I did use an Xacto knife to remove some areas inside the image.


3- Emboss the 4” x 5 ¼” Sahara Sand Cardstock with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder. Add it to the center of the Sahara Sand Cardstock. Layer the background mountain scene image in the center.


4- Cut out two pine trees from the Majestic Mountain Dies in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive Cardstock. I did add Adhesive Sheets to the back of the cardstock before running it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Add the Mossy Meadow about 1” from the left edge of the mountain background. Then add the Old Olive tree just to the left and a little lower.


5- Add the lounging man image with dimensionals in front of the Mossy Meadow tree.


6- Stamp your greeting in Memento Black Ink on a 1 ¼” circle in Crushed Curry Cardstock. Add adhesive to the back and wrap 8” of Linen Thread back and forth to create a faux bow. Add to the card with dimensionals to the left near the man.


Seaside


1- Begin by creating the seaside background scene:

Tear the Water Pattern DSP on one long side and attach to the bottom of the Sand Pattern.


2- Stamp the lounging man image in Memento Black ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then color in with your choice of Stampin’ Blend Markers. I used Ivory and Bronze for the skin tones. Then Balmy Blue for the shirt, Mossy Meadow for the shorts, So Saffron & Ivory for the hat, and Smoky Slate for the chair. Then fussy cut out, I did use an Xacto knife to remove some areas inside the image.


3- Emboss the 4” x 5 ¼” Sahara Sand Cardstock with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Add it to the center of the Sahara Sand Cardstock. Layer the background seaside DSP in the center.


4- Stamp and die cut your choice of images from the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set.

With Mossy Meadow Cardstock cut out a little seaweed from the large die. Trim it to the size you want.

I used the Sand Dollar image by creating a watercolor wash of Sahara Sand & Mossy Meadow ink, let dry and the stamped in the image on top. Then added a little texture with a Sponge Dauber and Sahara Sand ink.


For the Starfish I stamped in Sahara Sand and added some texture with a Sponge Dauber and So Saffron Ink.

And for the seaweed images I stamped one in each image in Mossy Meadow on Pear Pizzazz Cardstock.


5- Then add the images in a nice collage to the left of the background. I began with the large Mossy Meadow die cut seaweed and added it to the upper left corner of the seaside background. Then placed the sand dollar below and to the left. Add the lounging man image with dimensionals below the seaweed and to the right of the sand dollar. Place the starfish with dimensionals to the left of the man. Tuck in the little stamped seaweeds between the other images.


6- Stamp your greeting in Memento Black Ink on a ½” strip of Basic White Cardstock. Place on the card with dimensionals above the starfish and over the man slightly.

7- Unravel 8” of Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim. Take 3-4 pieces and tie a bow. Adhere with glue dots under the starfish. Trim the ends.

Create A Punch Template For Perfect Stamping -Flowers Of Friendship Bundle -2021 Artisan Design Team

Hello My Crafting Friends,

Today I am sharing my second card from my Stampin’ Up 2021 Artisan Design Team showcase project for May 2021. If you would like to also see my first card you can visit my blog post here: https://creativechelsey.blogspot.com/2021/06/how-to-create-your-own-stamps-flowers.html


This card is very similar to the first card. I wanted them to be a set so I kept a lot of the techniques and colors the same. For this card I wanted to focus on using the punch along with the stamp set. However, as I was using the punch, I realized I couldn’t stamp all the images and punch them out at the same time. So, I came up with this tip to get a perfect stamped image and not waste any punched out shapes by using a template from the punch and the Stamparatus. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and that it inspires you to create something beautiful today.

Window Sheet 146276 $5.00

Banners Pick A Punch 153608 $23.00


How to Create Your Own Solid Stamps for the Inside of the Lined Images:

1- Use StazOn Ink and stamp a single petal from one of the single flower images or a leaf image on the leftover red rubber.


2- Use a pair of OLD Paper Snips and cut a bubble around the image. Then angle the scissors and remove the extra rubber from around the stamped image going right up to the outside edge.  Tip: Make short straight cuts.


Making the Label:

1- Remove the paper backing from the leftover label sheet. This will expose the sticky side that is attached to the stamp. Use StazOn Ink and stamp the same image on this exposed sticky label.


2- Bubble cut out the image and adhere it to the foam side of the stamp. I do this by removing the other paper backing and attach that side to a clear block. Then stamp the label onto the foam side of the stamp.

See Video Below.


Creating a Punch Template for Perfect Stamping:

1- From Dark Color Cardstock punch the Flower & Leaves Punch (or any other multi-shape punch). This is the template.

2- From Basic White Cardstock punch the Flower & Leave Punch 3 times. Organize the shapes by size.


3- Attach the left edge of the window sheet to the base of the Stamparatus with Washi Tape to create a hinge. Place the stamp in the center of the window sheet and pick it up with one of the plates. Ink up the stamp and stamp on the Window Sheet. I used Evening Evergreen ink.


4- Place the template under the window sheet and line up the coordinating shape with the stamped image. Use washi tape to hold the template in place.





 



5- Place one of the coordinating Basic White pieces into the opening in the template. Make sure it fits exactly. Ink up the stamp and stamp onto the Basic White piece. Repeat all of that shape.


6- Then clean the window sheet & stamp. Remove the stamp and repeat steps for the next stamp.


Making the Card:

1- Use the inside petal and leaves stamps you created to add color to the inside of the flowers and leaves. I did 1 large and 2 small in Fresh Freesia, & 1 large and 1 small in Pale Papaya. Leaves in Soft Succulent.


2- With the tiny flowers in a line, ink only one and stamp in it Balmy Blue ink on the single sheet of Balmy Blue Cardstock randomly from the top left corner to about 1” from the bottom right corner.

3- Add a splatter of color over the tiny flowers with a Water Painter and Balmy Blue ink. Let dry.


4- With the Tiny Scallop Basic Border Die cut the bottom edge of the Balmy Blue Sheet about 4” from the top of the cardstock.


5- Use the Banners Pick A Punch and cut out a banner from one end of the 1” Evening Evergreen strip. Then cut the strip to 2” in length. Add this to the center of the Balmy Blue Cardstock about ½” from the scallop border.


6- Stamp the greeting in Evening Evergreen on Basic White Cardstock. Cut out with one of the Tailor Made Tag Dies. Place the die so the greeting and the scallop & hole are on the left side of the die. Run through your Stampin Cut & Emboss Machine.


7- Then flip the die so the top scallop & hole are on the right side and line it up so you have even spacing between the die and the greeting on the sides. Use washi tape to hold in place. Place it on the cutting plates so the top plate only covers the decorative edge on the right side. Run through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.


8- Cut two pieces of 6” of twine. Fold in half and string the loop through the hole. Take the ends and go through the loop. Pull tight. Do the same for the other hole. Add the Tag to the Balmy Blue piece with dimensionals. Attach the ends to the back of the cardstock.


9- Attach the Balmy Blue Cardstock to the Vellum piece with about ¼” from the top and evenly spaced on sides. Add this to the cardbase.


10- Add the flowers and leaves going from the top left corner to the bottom right and around the greeting. Place dimensionals behind the flowers and glue on the leaves.


11- Cut 10” of twine and tie a bow around the twine on the right side of the greeting. Add matching In Color Rhinestones to the center of each flower.

All Done!

How to Create Your Own Stamps - Flowers Of Friendship Bundle - 2021 Artisan Design Team Stampin' Up!

Hello My Crafting Friends,

Today I am sharing my first Stampin’ Up 2021 Artisan Design Team showcase project for May 2021. 


For this card I wanted to focus on using the Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set. As I was stamping these images I wanted a quick and easy way to fill in the lined flowers and leaves with a solid color, so I made my own stamps using the leftover rubber. I walk you through this process in this tutorial. I also use some other new dies like the Tailor Made Tags & Basic Border Dies to add some interesting shapes and fun details to this card. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and that it inspires you to create something beautiful today.

2- Bubble cut out the image and adhere it to the foam side of the stamp. I do this by removing the other paper backing and attach that side to a clear block. Then stamp the label onto the foam side of the stamp.

See Video Below.


Making the Card:

1- Stamp the large grouping of flowers three times in Evening Evergreen on Basic White Cardstock. Use the inside stamps you create to add color to the inside of the flowers and leaves. I did one in Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia, & Pale Papaya. Leaves in Soft Succulent. Fussy cut out.


2- With the tiny flowers in a line, ink only one and stamp in it Balmy Blue ink on the single sheet of Balmy Blue Cardstock randomly from the top left corner to bottom right corner.

3- Add a splatter of color over the tiny flowers with a Water Painter and Balmy Blue ink. Let dry.


4- With the Tiny Scallop Basic Border Die cut the right edge of the Balmy Blue Sheet. Once cut remove any cardstock on the left side so the top and bottom edges are 2 ¾”.


5- Stamp the greeting in Evening Evergreen on Basic White Cardstock. Cut out with one of the Tailor Made Tag Dies. Place the die so the greeting is in the top half. Run through your Stampin Cut & Emboss Machine.


6- Then flip the die upside down and line it up so you have even spacing between the die and the greeting on the top and bottom. Use washi tape to hold in place. Place it on the cutting plates so the top plate only covers the decorative edge on the bottom. Run through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.


7- Cut two pieces of 8” of twine. Fold in half and string the loop through the bottom of the hole. Take the ends and go through the loop. Pull tight. Do the same for the other hole. Add the Tag to the Balmy Blue piece with dimensionals. Attach the ends to the back of the cardstock.


8- Attach the Evening Evergreen strip ¼” to the left of the Balmy Blue sheet. Then attach these pieces to the Vellum piece with about ¼” from the left and evenly spaced on top and bottom. Add this to the cardbase.


9-Add the three flowers in a curve around the greeting. Place dimensionals behind the flowers and glue on the leaves.


10- Cut 10” of twine and tie a bow around the top of the twine at the top of the greeting. Add three In Color Rhinestones.

All Done!
