DSC#286: Healing Hugs Get Well Soon

Sending a Healing Hugs Get Well Soon card is easy with this beautiful photorealistic flower.

The DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge for this week it is a “showCASE” Challenge.

I enjoy the “showCASE” challenge because it gives me an opportunity to take an image from the catalog and CaSE it (Copy and Share Everything).

It also gives me an opportunity to try new things…

  • color combination
  • layout or design
  • new stamp sets, tools or embellishments

I strongly encourage you to pull out your catalog and try it! I would love to see the creative projects you come up with!

This week I was inspired by the need for a get well card.

  • I love the vibrant colors used in this card as well as the sentiment.
  • Unfortunately (or fortunately-depending on how you look at it), I don’t have either of the stamp sets (Sorry for Everything and Bunch of Blossoms) used in the original so I opted to try out the new Healing Hugs stamp set.
  • I love the beautiful floral image featured in this set and I know you will too!

  • These stamps are textured with varying densities of concentrated rubber resulting in ink opacities that produce a realistic complexity and intensity.
  • All you have to do is stamp the image onto Whisper White cardstock and the stamp does all the work for you, adding beautiful details.
  • Did you notice the Subtle embossed texture on the Whisper White layer? It is the new Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder & I am absolutely in love with it!

Graceful Glass Sympathy Card

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a “Sketch Pad” Challenge.

DSC#279 Sketch Pad Challenge

Sympathy cards are not fun and exciting to make and quite honestly I avoid them…

BUT,

I know that I shouldn’t because usually when you need them is not a great time to come up with an idea on the fly.

So, I thought this week is a good time to create a sympathy card for a couple reasons….

  1. I need two of them
  2. I tend to avoid them (which I disclosed earlier).

This card was relatively quick to put together put it looks more difficult than it actually is.

I love layers and textures of this card: subtle embossing, velvet ribbon, colored vellum.

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down for complete supply list and links)

Stamp Set: Painted Glass – coming June 1st

Paper:

  • Rich Razzleberry (card base: 4-1/4″ x 11″, embossed layer: 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″)
  • Very Vanilla (1″ x 3-1/2″)
  • Graceful Glass Designer Vellum (1-3/4″ x 5-3/8″) – coming June 1st

Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Stampin’ Blends: Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry combo packs

Accessories: Big Shot, Triple Banner Punch, Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon – coming June 1st, Stained Glass Thinlit Dies – coming June 1st

It’s All in the Details: If you look closely, you will be able to see some embossing behind the vellum layer,

I created that by using the Stained Glass Thinlits and my Silicone Craft Sheet, to emboss instead of cut…Isn’t that super cool!

 

For DSC#279 Sketch Pad Challenge featuring Stampin' Up! Graceful Glass Suite. For details, click through to my blog #stampinup #crackedpotstamper #paintedglass #loveitliveitshareit

  4. Adhere embossed layer and Vellum panel onto folded card base. TIP: Adhesive will show through on Vellum layer, use care to strategically hide it behind the sentiment banner.

DSC#281: Petal Palette showCASE

When the Petal Palette stamp set was not on the “Retiring List” I was thrilled!

Why?

Because I purchased the entire suite of products and then didn’t have an opportunity to play with it!

So, I am thrilled to have more time to create with this beautiful stamp set and matching framelits.

Remember: the bundle will be retiring on May 31st…so order them as soon as possible.

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a “showCASE” Challenge.

This week I was inspired by trying to recreate the look of the Designer Series Paper and creating a pink flower.

I love how the Basic Black layer turned out on this card.

And it was so simple to create, see directions are below.

Stampin' Up! Petal Palette showCASE'd card featuring Petal Palette stamp set, Petal Pairs Textured Impressions Embossing Folders and Wink of Stella. For details click through to my blog. #stampinup #crackedpotstamper #petal palette #showCASE

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down for complete supply list and links)

Stamp Set: Petal Palette

Paper: Shimmery White, Basic Black

Ink: Whisper White Craft, Basic Black Archival or Stazon

Accessories: Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pen, Wink of Stella, Petal Pairs TIEF, Petals & More Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Big Shot

It’s All in the Details:

Stampin' Up! Petal Palette showCASE'd card featuring Petal Palette stamp set, Petal Pairs Textured Impressions Embossing Folders and Wink of Stella. For details click through to my blog. #stampinup #crackedpotstamper #petal palette #showCASE

Petal Palette Card
  1. On Shimmery White cardstock, stamp floral image with Basic Black Archival or Stazon ink, die cut with Petals & More Thinlits. Die cut Shimmery White cardstock circle with Stitched Shapes Framelits.
  2. Use Petal Pairs Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to emboss Basic Black cardstock (2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″).
  3. Stamp sentiment with Whisper White Craft ink onto Basic Black cardstock, set aside to dry. For background layer, gently drag edge of ink pad over embossed image on Basic Black cardstock to transfer a light layer of ink to the paper. TIP: use a very light hand because you can always add more ink but can’t take it away.  Set aside to dry, craft ink dries slower than regular ink and you don’t want to smudge it.
  4. Color flowers and leaves with Watercolor Pencils, using Blender Pen to soften harsh lines. Add a little shimmer with Wink of Stella Glitter Pen. TIP: I used the Watercolor Pencils from the Lots of Happy Card Kit-Rich Razzleberry, Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive & Lemon LIme Twist. Flirty Flamingo & Lemon LIme Twist are exclusive to this kit.
  5. Adhere embossed layer onto folded Basic Black card base (2-1/2″ x 9″). Trim sentiment. Adhere circle, floral image and sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add Shimmery White cardstock to inside of card for your special message.
  6. Address an envelope and drop in the mailbox to brighten someone’s day.

DSC#277: Eastern Beauty Brusho

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a “Home Sweet Home” Challenge.

This week I was inspired by

  • shape of the tiles
  • muted colors reminiscent of sea glass
  • and a card that I saw when I got a sneak peek at the new 2018-19 Annual Catalog (one of my favorite perks of being a part of the Stampin’ Up! family).

I had an idea in my head…

and that is exactly where it stayed.

This isn’t unusual for me because I often get busy creating and soon my original idea has morphed into something very different and often time much better!

Ready to see it?

Stampin' Up! Eastern Beauty combined with Brusho Crystal Color. For details click through to my blog. #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #easternbeauty #brusho
