DSC#253: Gourd Goodness

Gourd Goodness was not on my original “I want this stamp set NOW!” list but that quickly changed.

Why?

  • the sentiment
  • the two step stamping details
  • the variety of gourds…Gourds galore in this stamp set! Decorate your house AND your projects with these plants and bring some color into that fall!

My project for today is part of the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge.

 

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #253 Home Sweet Home Challenge shared by Dawn Thomas. For details, please click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup

I was inspired by the beautiful pumpkins on the square pillows resting on the neutral colored sofa.

Stampin' Up! Gourd Goodness card featuring two step stamping for beautiful details. For instructions click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #twostepstamping #gourdgoodness

The detail on the pumpkins is what sold me on this stamp set – they look like I might have some super secret technique or talent but I don’t, instead I have a great stamp set that did all the shading and details for me.

Wow-so simple.

This card went together is a matter of minutes and looks like I spent much more time and energy on it than I actually did.

You will love how quickly you can make a handful of these beauties to send out those special people in your life.

I like to keep a couple cards in my hand bag to give to people I meet throughout my day…

the clerk at the grocery store,

the barista at the coffee shop

the nurse at the doctor’s office

or the any one that looks like they could use a little “pick me up”.

 

What did I use to create this Gourd Goodness beauty?

Stamp Set: Gourd Goodness

Paper: Very Vanilla

Ink: Peekaboo Peach, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede and Early Espresso

Accessories: Pinewood Planks embossing folder, Stitched Shapes Framelits

It’s All in the Details:

  • monochromatic background with texture – the embossing adds a subtle detail without screaming “Hey LOOK at me!” keeping the focus on the gourds and the message.
  • two step stamping tip:
    • lighter color (Peekaboo Peach) on the less detailed image
    • darker color (Pumpkin Pie) on the more detailed image
    • Soft Suede stamped off once for less detailed stem and full strength for detailed stem
    • Early Espresso: sentiment

DSC#252: Painted Autumn Suite

With Autumn in full swing, I wanted to share the Painted Autumn Suite today.

  • Painted Harvest stamp set
  • Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper

 

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #252 Color Challenge featuring Cajun Craze, Soft Sky, Peekaboo Peach shared by Dawn Thomas. For details, please click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup

 

This week I was inspired by the color combination and the One Sheet Wonder Technique or making several cards from a single piece of patterned paper.

This is not an idea that I came up with on my own, in fact there are oodles of patterns on Pinterest.

I can’t wait to show you the cards I created and share the pattern that I used.

Make sure you come back tomorrow to see how easy it is to make 14 cards from 1 piece of Designer Series Paper.

 

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn Suite Thank You card for DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #252. For details and instructions, please click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #paintedautumn #paintedharvest

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

  • Stamp Set: Painted Harvest
  • Paper: Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, Peekaboo Peach, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla
  • Ink: Cajun Craze, Soft Sky
  • Accessories: Linen Thread, Whisper White Baker’s Twine
  • It’s All in the Details:
    • Baker’s twine can be changed to any color you need by simply pressing it onto a stamp pad of the desired color. In this case, Soft Sky.

 

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn Suite Thank You card for DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #252. For details and instructions, please click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #paintedautumn #paintedharvest

 

Painted Autumn Thank You Card
  1. Adhere Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper onto Cajun Craze and then onto Peekaboo Peach card base.
  2. On Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp sentiment with Cajun Craze ink. See NOTE below. Adhere to card front.
  3. Tie bow with 2 strands of Linen Thread and 1 strand of colored Baker’s Twine, attach with Glue Dot.
  4. Stamp inside sentiment on Very Vanilla cardstock, adhere.
  5. Address an envelope, write a message inside and drop in the mailbox to brighten someone’s day.

NOTE: if you look closely at the sentiment, you will see my “happy accident”…I had stamped it in Soft Sky originally but thought it was too light so I stamped over it with Cajun Craze but I didn’t get it lined up exactly so some of the Soft Sky is peeking out giving it a bit of a shadowy look.

I liked it so I decided to just roll with it. What do you think? Do you ever do that?

DSC#251: Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper

Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper is a perfect fit for today’s card.

So many designs, so many colors, so many uses. Many images can be fussy cut to create embellishments for cards and tags. Sweet, detailed, hand-drawn patterns add delicate fun to your creation….Pick a pack of patterned paper!

 

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #251. Sketch Pad Challenge shared by Dawn Thomas. For details, please click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup

The DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge this week is a “Sketch Pad” Challenge.

I decided to rotate the sketch to accommodate the pattern on the paper, which is one of the things I love about creativity…

there is no right or wrong way as long as you like the outcome

Seems like most of my projects are a culmination of “happy accidents” – the finished project seldom resembles the idea I started with in my head.

I enjoy Sketch Challenges because initial design is already completed and I can focus on adding the colors and patterns that tickle my fancy!

This week I was inspired by fun and whimsical images in the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper.

I love the vibrant colors of this card.

Painted Autumn Vellum Panel Card

Look at how the vellum softens the colors of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper in this card-I just love it!

Inspiration for this card was a card I had seen that was created by Jennifer McGuire and knew I had to give it a try.

A great card design can be altered slightly and used for lots of different occasions.

Quickly change the look by switching up the…

  • Designer Series Paper
  • stamp set & sentiments
  • ribbon or accessories
  • the options are only limited by your imagination and your craft stash

Tips & Tricks for Stampin’ like a Pro

Whether you’ve ever used this autumn-themed set or not, one of its most endearing attributes is that it gives you the look and feel of painting with watercolors. And, like any work of art, there are many factors that influence your final product. This set was designed to help give your stamps a one-of-a-kind feel and is meant to mimic the nature of watercolor, I think it is absolutely gorgeous!

For the perfectionists among us (or those simply looking to master your craft), here are some tips and tricks for stampin’ like a pro!

  • Stamp all layers of the image
  • Make sure your ink pads are well inked
  • Nice, even pressure when stamping will give the best image
  • Use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat
  • Lighter colors won’t show up as deeply as darker colors, something to keep in mind
  • Play around with saturation levels (e.g., stamping full strength vs. stamping off) to get the look you desire
  • The stamp coordinates well with but is not supposed to match the flowers on the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper

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

This week I was inspired by the thought of the temperatures cooling down and the arrival of autumn.

The simplicity of this card is what I love the most about it – the toughest part was the fussy cutting.

I have a love/hate thing with fussy cutting, I always think I dislike it until I start cutting and then I find it relaxing.

Painted Harvest Pinewood Planks Card
  1. On Very Vanilla card stock, stamp sentiment with Early Espresso ink, die cut with Stitched Shapes Framelits.
  2. Emboss Soft Sky card stock (4′ x 5-1/4″) with Pinewood Planks embossing folder, adhere to folded Soft Sky (4-1/4″ x 11″) card base. (See Tip below)
  3. Wrap Metallic Thread around around fingers approximately 3 times, adhere to oval with Stampin’ Dimensional. Fussy cut flowers from Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, adhere to oval with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Adhere oval to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Address an envelope, write a message inside and drop in the mailbox to brighten someone’s day.

TIP: I like to use Fast Fuse adhesive when adhering card stock with embossing-it gets in the nooks and crannies and holds better
