Sweetest Gift 1 – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #624

 

Hey There,

Happy Friday!  I’m ready for the weekend.   How about you?   I need a little R & R, but I have a feeling I’ll be spending time doing some odd jobs that need done around here over the weekend.   I’m hoping for  a bit of a break in the soring temps so I feel like working outside again.   At least I want the feels like temp to be down below 100!

Anyhow, today I’m working in my nice air conditioned office, so no complaints.  I have a cute baby card for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Gift stamp set.   Add some clouds and grass and you have a sweet scene to add to your card.   What new parents wouldn’t  get a grin from receiving this?

Check out my tutorial on how this was done below.

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Gift (item #130586)

Started with a 3″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock.  Stamped the baby by coloring directly on the stamp with Pear Pizzazz and Basic Black.  Huffed my breath on the stamp and then stamped it.

Colored the baby’s skin Blush Blossom, shirt Daffodil Delight and then outlined the diaper and bottom of the parachute with Basic Black.

 

Added Pear Pizzazz to the bottom of the parachute and diaper to give it some shading.

Punched a scallop punch out of scrap paper and used it as a mask to create the clouds using Marina Mist ink and a sponge.

 

 

Sponged Pear Pizzazz ink at the bottom of the card stock.

Added Blushing Bride dots at the top of the grass for flowers.  We want that baby to be landing in something soft, lol.

Added Blush Blossom to the baby’s cheeks.

Stamped the sentiment using Stazon Jet Black ink.

Cut a 4″ x 5.25″ panel of Pear Pizzazz and embossed it using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and Big Shot Machine.

 

Added a Whisper White card base and Whisper White layer to the main image panel.  Also added Whisper White Ribbon.

Stay cool!

Punched the vest portion using the Owl Punch out of a scrap of striped designer series paper.

Cut a “v” in the bottom to split the legs.

Punched a Word Window punch from a scrap of DSP.

Cut the end off for the pocket and two like stripes for the shoulder straps.

If you don’t have a dark line at the top of the pocket use a marker to put in a dark stripe at the top.  I used a Cherry Cobbler marker.  This helps you pocket show up better.

Added the pocket and the shoulder straps using glue.

Added two dots for buttons using a Basic Black marker.

Die cut the second to the largest Deco Label Framelit out of Whisper White card stock using the Big Shot Machine.

Swiped the Tempting Turquoise ink pad lightly directly over the top of the card stock to create the sky.  Leave a bit of white showing through for your clouds.  If you don’t like your first attempt, flip the card stock over and do it again.  :)

Sponged Old Olive ink at the bottom of the card stock to create my grass.  This is done with a pouncing motion.

Added Linen Thread and adhered the ends to the back of the card stock using Mini Glue Dots.

Cut one shoulder strap shorter than the other so the pants would look like they are blowing in the wind.  Added the little pants using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Day set using Stazon Jet Black ink and then added dots behind the sentiment using a Basic Black marker.  (I love this stamp set, it has the best sentiments)

Cut the largest Deco Framelit out of Whisper White card stock using the Big Shot Machine.  Added the main image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up.

Cut a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Old Olive card stock and embossed it using the Stripes embossing folder and the Big Shot Machine.

Brayed Old Olive ink over the card stock to darken the raised lines.

Added a Whisper White card stock base and a Strawberry Slush panel.  Also added Tempting Turquoise candy dots.

Here is the finished card measuring 4.25″ x 5.5″.

Have a terrific Monday!

Until my next post. . . . . .

Not Just For Fall II – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #606

Hey There,

I’m continuing on using the Stampin’ Up! set Gently Falling for today’s card tutorial.  I hope you are seeing just how valuable this set is all year long.  It’s so much fun using a stamp set in an unexpected way.

Leaves are on the trees, pretty much 9 out of 12 months of the year here in Ohio, but it seems that we really only appreciate their beauty in the Autumn months.  Why is that, especially since they give us such relief from the heat in the Summer by provided us much needed shade.  Okay, I confess, I’m a tree hugger, lol.

Check out the tutorial below.

***************************************************************

Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Gently Falling (item # 123804) and DayDream Wheel (item #126939)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Old Olive, Pistachio Pudding,  and Island Indigo

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Island Indigo, Always Artichoke and Old Olive

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponges, Soft Suede Seam Binding, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Wood Embossing Folder, Regals Candy Dots, Versamark pad, Heat Gun, Clear Embossing Powder and Big Shot Machine

 

Load the Daydream wheel with Versamark and rolled across a 3″ x 6.25″ piece of Whisper White card stock using a ruler to keep things straight.

Heat emboss the image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.

Sponged Marina Mist ink at on the left side of the card stock.

Sponged Crumb Cake ink on the right side of the card stock.

Added Soft Suede ink to the right center of the card stock and around the edges on the right side.

Sponged Island Indigo ink on the left center of the card stock and around the edges of the left side.

Stamped 3 leaves on Pistachio Pudding card stock using Always Artichoke ink.

Stamped the leaf filler stamp using Old Olive.

Cut the leaves out and sponged Soft Suede ink on the stem end of the leaves and Island Indigo on the top tips of the leaves.

Adhered the leaves to the main image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the top of the leaves and glue on the bottom (stem end) of the leaves.  This adheres the leaves to the card stock and pops the top of them up but secures the stem.

Cut a 8.5″ x 3.75″ piece of Island Indigo card stock and embossed it using the Wood embossing folder and the Big Shot machine.  You need to run it through twice to get both ends of the card stock.  You can see the crease where the design meets but it looks like part of the design once the card is put together.

Added a 8″ x 9″ Old Olive card base and Soft Suede Seam binding.

Added a 3.25″ x 6.5″ Old Olive panel under the main image panel and the adhered them to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Also added Island Indigo Candy Dots.

Here is the completed card that measures 4″ x 9″.  This size card fits into a #10 size business envelope.  Anyone remember how all the funny cards years back use to be this size?  Maybe I’m showing my age here, lol.

Know the Code!!!!
