Abstract Impressions Stamp Set Wow

The Abstract Impressions stamp set is on page 129 of the new catalog.  If you love flowers, you'll love this set.  Here's my card for today,

Abstract Impressions Grapefruit Grove card by Jo Anne Hewins

We are making this card in my June classes.  Start with a base of Grapefruit Grove.  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The Whisper White layer is 3 1/4 x 4 1/4.  The Calypso Coral layer is 3 1/8 x 4 1/8.  The final layer is from the 2018-2020 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Stack.  It measures 3 x 4.  Before attaching these layers to the card base add a length of the Grapefruit Grove Grosgrain Ribbon.  Also add a length of Linen Thread.

Make 3 flowers for the card.  You will stamp in 3 layers.  The first layer is the largest stamp.  Stamp off the Grapefruit Grove for this.  The next stamp is the middle sized one.  Stamp on top of the other layer in Grapefruit Grove.  The last layer is the smallest stamp.  Stamp it in Calypso Coral.  Cut these out with your snips.  Add with dimensionals.

The leaves are made from the Painted Harvest stamp set.  Stamp the detailed leaf on Lemon Lime Twist with the same color.  Punch out with the Leaf Punch.

Add bows of the Linen Thread and the Grapefruit Grove Grosgrain Ribbon.  

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.

The saying on the inside is from the Abstract Impressions stamp set.  Stamp in Calypso Coral.  Stamp another flower directly on the Whisper White.  The leaf was an extra one left from the front.  I cliped it and added it to the flower.

I love how this turned out.  In fact I also used this card for a swap with some other demonstrators in NC.  I used the Handwritten background stamp for it.  Which do you like better?

This card has the most detailed flower stamped in Grapefruit Grove on the card base.  I used the Handwritten background stamp on the Grapefruit layer in the center.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  It makes me happy and I hope you get some ideas you can use.  If you need a demonstrator, please consider me.  I would truly love it!  Check out the product list below!

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #513 Animal Outing

Welcome to the Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  For the month of June, we'll be using the new annual catalog to help us.  Today's challenge is to use the sample on page 48.

CCMC513

I chose to use the Animal Outing stamp set.  Here's my card.

CCMC #513 by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Call Me Clover, one of the new In Colors.  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and is folded at 4 1/4.

The Whisper White layer is cut at 3 1/4 x 4 1/2.  Run it through the Big Shot with the Layered Leaves embossing folder.  It's put at a slight angle on the card.

The new 2018-2020 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper is going to be a favorite of mine.  The long rectangle is 1 1/2 x 4.  The frame was cut using the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and a square from the Layering Squares Framelits.  I attached the frame at a slight angle using the Foam Adhesives Strips.

To decorate the frame, put a folded over piece of the Call Me Clover Gingham Ribbon.  I was thinking later that more of the patterned paper would look good too as little banners.

The giraffe is from the Animal Outing stamp set.  We got this set for free at the OnStage event.  There is a set of framelits that coordinate, but I don't have them yet.  They will arrive next week!  For this card I colored the girafft with Blends.  I used the Light and Dark Crumb Cake and the Dark Daffodil Delight.  I have to fussy cut.  Place the giraffe on dimensionals.

The detailed leaf stamp from the Painted Harvest were stamped in Call Me Clover on Granny Apple Green cardstock.  Punch out with the leaf punch.  I used 5 of them.  Add around with glue and dimensionals as needed.

The saying is from Animal Outing.  Stamp in Call Me Clover on Whisper White and fussy cut around it.

The sentiment on the inside is from the Detailed with Love stamp set.  The leaves are from Painted Harvest.  The solid leaf is Granny Apple Green and the detail is Call Me Clover.

In Honor of the Queen: a Card

I know many of you watched the wedding of Meghan and Harry.  Did you find yourself looking at all the people through the Stampin' Up! colors?  I have to admit that's often how I view the world.  Did you notice the Lemon-Lime Twist and Gorgeous Grape worn by Queen Elizabeth.  I got this pic from Google.

Queen at the wedding

She really looked pretty although a smile might would help.  I decided to make a card with the same colors in honor of the queen.

In honor of the queen wedding card by Jo Anne Hewins

Of course we needed flowers on the card!  Do you see what I used for the flower?  Well, we'll get to that.

The base is Lemon Lime Twist 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The Gorgeous Grape layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  The next Lemon Lime layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  Run this layer through the Big Shot with the Garden Trellis embossing folder.  This folder makes everything looks fancy!

The petals of the flower are made with the sea weed framelit from the Under the Sea Framelits.  Don't you just love finding a new way to use something!  This is not an original idea.  I saw it somewhere on Pinterest, but I can't find it now to give credit.  Make 4 of the sea weed shapes in Gorgeous Grape and adhere them with a little glue.  The center of the flower is a Lemon Lime Twist 1/2 inch circle.  Just punch it.  I played with the paper until I could pull it apart.  That makes it have a suede like appearance.  

The leaves are from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  They are Mossy Meadow.  Adhere the flower and leaves with dimensionals.

Finally, the sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.  Use the Classic Label Punch to punch it out.

For the inside I added another flower.  The saying is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.

I really love how this card turned out.  These colors do look great together.

Color Fusers Blog Hop for June 2018

Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop for June.  This month we are using the colors Grapefruit Grove, Mint Macaron, Blackberry Bliss, Tranquil Tide, and a choice of neutral or basic. 

No automatic alt text available. 

I'm so glad you have joined our hop.  I know you'll see lots of great ideas for this color mix.  It's a talented group!  You probably just came from Melissa Kerman.  She always has such pretty artistic cards.

I chose to add Whisper White to this color combination.  Here is my card.

Color Fusers for June 2018 with Swirly Frames by Jo Anne Hewins

The colors do work well together.  The Grapefruit Grove was hard for me, but I'm just not an orange person.  In the end, I do love it. 

The card base is Tranquil Tide measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  The Blackberry Bliss layer is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  The Whipser White layer is 3 3/4 x 5.

I used the Swirly Frames stamp set that I got for Prize Patrol at OnStage to make my background.  Using all four colors, Tranquil Tide, Blackberry Bliss, Mint Macaron, and Grapefruit Grove, stamp off and then stamp randomly on the white layer.  I think I have 5 of each color.  I used the smaller square and rectangle for this.  My pads are new and very juicy.  That's why I felt I needed to stamp off.  Before you attach the layers to the card base, run some of the Blackberry Bliss twine from the Nature's Twine pack across the front of the layer.  Tape on back.  This twine is a little thick, so I pulled some of the layers apart.  I used all of the layers, but they seem to lie flatter pulled apart.

The oval is Tranquil Tide and is cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies.  The flowers are from the Oh, So Eclectic stamp set and the Eclectic Layers Framelits.  I stamped the flowers in Blackberry Bliss.  Stamp off and then stamp the more solid stamp of the flowers inside.  I added the center of the flower in Grapefruit Grove.  Cut these out with the dies.  For the flower stem, stamp in stamped off Tranquil Tide on Mint Macaron cardstock.  Fussy cut this part out and attach to the bud.  The leaves are also stamped off Traquil Tide on Mint Macaron.  There's a die for that!  Attach all parts with dimensionals to the oval.

The only things left are to add a bow of the same twine, also pulled apart and the sentiment.  The Hello is from Varied Vases.  Stamp in Blackberry Bliss and then fussy cut it.

Color Fusers for June inside of card by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside, the saying is from Love What You Do.  Add frames, stamped off, for each color along the bottom.  I added and extra leaf.  Very cute!

Easy Peasy Garden Impressions

The Garden Impressions 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Stack is just fantastic!  It's colorful and bold.  It really doesn't need a lot to go with it.  Sometimes you need to make a card that's fast.  Face it, we are all rushed most of the time.  This paper allows you to make an easy and quick card.  Here is the card I made in about 10 minutes.

Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper quick card by Jo Anne Hewins

The paper supplies all the pizzazz!  Start with a card base of So Saffron 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded.  The Melon Mambo layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  The designer paper is 3 9/16 x 4 13/16.  Yes, you are probably laughing at my measurements.  I just wanted it to be more of a frame than the 1/8 measurement.  I went over one more tick on the ruler.

Cut a Whisper White oval.  I used the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Add with dimensionals.

Cut a flower of each color with the leaves from some of the left over 6 x 6 sheet of patterned paper.  Add these with dimensionals.

The Hello is from the Varied Vases stamp set.  This has become my most favorite little saying.  It's perfect!

For the inside of the card, another sentiment from Varied Vases is added in Blueberry Bushel.  Cut out more flowers and leaves to decorate.
