To Market Designer Series Paper, Card 2

Happy June maybe a little late!  I have a quick post today showing you a card using the To Market Designer Series Paper.  I didn't purchase the Market Goodness bundle.  The To Market paper though lends itself to many cards IF you like to fussy cut images.

This is a very easy card.  The base is Thick Basic White 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.

Cut strips of the To Market paper 1 1/8 x 3 3/4.  Glue to the front of the card leaning the strips one way or the other.  I picked 5 different prints for the strips.  You of course can do it anyway you wish.

The circle is cut from Basic White with the Spotlight on Nature dies.  Glue the circle in the center of the card.

Cut a bouquet of flowers from the To Market paper.  Add to the circle with dimensionals.

Tie a Linen Thread bow.  Add it with a rolled up glue dot to the bouquet.

The saying is from the Simply Zinnias bundle.  Stamp in Real Red and fussy cut the saying.  Add some mini dimensionals avoiding the area the crosses the flowers.  I put a glue dot there.

I want to let you know that I'm taking the month of June off and won't be posting very often.  I've lost some of the joy of stamping.  Well, I really enjoy stamping.  It's the other stuff that is taking away the joy.  Thinking up projects for classes, thinking up projects for my blog, taking and editing photos, writing posts, low class attendance and low sales.  I'm going to work on getting back some of the joy and stamping just for me.  I'm still a demonstrator and I'm still to help you if needed.  Don't forget that if you need to get in touch.

To Market Designer Series Paper Basket of Goodies

I'm not a shopper.  But, there was something about the To Market designer paper that drew me.  I think there are a lot of possibilities there.

To Market DSP  Something Fancy  Spotlight on Nature dies  Linen Thread  2024-2026 In Color Resin Dots  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I had so much fun filling up that basket!  I did not purchase the Market Goodness bundle shown on page 39 of the annual catalog, so I had to fussy cut all of the parts in the basket and the basket.  Thank goodness for my Paper Snips.  I enjoy fussy cutting.

This card base is Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.  Using a piece of Basic White 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 emboss with the Painted Texture embossing folder.  Glue this layer to the card front.  My cuts were not perfect so I had to make some trims with a paper cutter to even everything out.

Add a strip of the To Market paper to the front center of the card that measures 2 x 4 1/4.

The Basic White circle was cut from the Spotlight on Nature dies.  This circle has a diameter of about 3 1/4.

I built the basket and contents before adding it to the circle, but keeping in mind how it would fit on the circle.  

Building the basket was a matter of trial and error beginning with the basket.  I tried to cut items that were near to an edge in order to preserve the paper.  For instance the flowers were actually cut off the edge of the paper.  I cut them out knowing I would need to cover that side of the flowers.  I added some of the veggies from the front with mini dimensionals for interest.  I added with tape on the back of the basket and rearranged until I liked it.  Add the basket to the circle with dimensionals.  I had an extra purple onion cut out so I added it at the bottom of the basket.

Since there are several layers of dimensionals already, I glued the circle to the card front.

The saying is from the Something Fancy stamp set.  Stamp in Blackberry Bliss.  Cut this out with the Spotlight on Nature dies.  There are 12 circles in that die set in different sizes and with different designs around the outside.  It happened that the size I needed was the same outside decor as the first circle.  Add with dimensionals.

Add a bow of Linen Thread with a glue dot and add some of the 2024-2026 In Color Resin Dots.

For the inside of the card, add another strip of designer paper 1 1/8 inches by 4 1/4.  Cut some carrots and glue them.  I did not add a saying.

Attention Shoppers Purple on Aisle Three

I have a special friend who had a birthday recently.  She is a lover of purple.  I decided to pair a bundle I haven't used with purple.  That is the Attention Shoppers bundle.  The Attention Shoppers dies cut out each of the images in the stamp set.  There aren't any extras to the dies except for the shopping cart pieces.  It's all down to business.

Attention Shoppers Card  Perennial Lavender DSP  Perennial Postage dies  Attention Shoppers dies  Paper piecing  Blends  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create


The base of this card is Highland Heather 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

Stamp the gift bag, flowers, birthday cake, and Happy Birthday randomly over the front of the card.  Take a blending brush and add some Highland Heather color on the objects lightly.

Using the Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper and the Perennial Postage dies, cut three rectangles from the purple sheet of patterned paper.  Use the third largest rectangle from the group of 4.  Glue these rectangles to a piece of Basic White matching up the sides to resemble stamps.  Trim around the white.  Tie a length of Linen Thread around this layer and tie into a bow between the first and second rectangles.  Glue this layer to the center of the card front.

Now the fun begins.  We'll decorate our objects!

Stamp the flowers, gift bag and birthday cake on Basic White in Memento Black.

For the flowers, color them in Highland Heather blends combo.  Stamp the flowers again on the plaid paper from the Perennial Lavender.  Cut just on the outside edge of the black line to cut out the wrapper for the flowers.  Glue this to the white paper.  Cut the flowers with the die.

For the gift bag, stamp the bag again on the green solid paper from the same pack and the bag on some of the paper with the little white flowers.  Trim the top green and then trim the flowered part of the bag.  Glue these in place over the image already stamped.  Cut with the die.

Color the candles with Daffodil Delight on the cake.  Color the top, middle, and bottom with a light Highland Heather blend.  Stamp the cake again on the purple solid paper and cut out the wavy pieces.  Glue in place and then cut out the cake with the die.

Add these images to the rectangles with dimensionals.  Stamp the saying in Highland Heather and trim.  Notch the end.  With a Bone Folder or your hand curve the saying.  Add a dimensional to the center of the cake to attach the saying.  Use a glue dot on the left to anchor that end of the saying.

Add some of the Purple Fine Shimmer Gems.

For the inside of the card, add a saying and stamp the flowers in the bottom corner.  Color with blends.
