Music From The Heart FMS419

by Joanne James27. January 2020 19:48

I've got a super-quick post this evening to share a card I made with Lee Ann's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches that I am hopefully just going to squeeze my entry in for:

The minute I saw the angle in Lee Ann's sketch I knew that it would be perfect for my first use of one of my favourite sets in the Spring mini catalogue - take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

Music From The Heart is the set inspired by Million Sales Achiever Dawn Olchefske and as someone who has a family of musicians of one form or another this was a set I've wanted for a long time! Today's card is super-simple, stamped in black on Whisper White to look like sheet music with a black card base, then the piano coloured with a black Stampin' Blends combo and just two pops of red from the paper-pieced red foil heart-shaped lid of the piano and a teeny-tiny red foil punched heart to adorn my sentiment. A little bit of overhang from the sentiment label and the stitched circle for interest, and that's that. Quick to create and fortunately quick to blog as time is of the essence today!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Life Is Short - Buy The Shoes for PP475

by Joanne James26. January 2020 10:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's my turn to host this week and I have my favourite, a sketch challenge, for you to work with:

 

My sketch involves an element of repeating pattern, which can be any shape you like. Whilst I used my stitched circles as a background for my pattern repeat, today's card is all about the shoes - and some rather special shoes at that! Take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

Words To Live By - I love the sentiments in the 'Dressed to Impress' stamp set but my favourite is without doubt this one - I mean, has there ever been a truer word spoken?! I am one of those people who love shoes; I don't own as many pairs now as I once did and I've never owned a pair of floral high heels, but I would love to - so I would love to receive a birthday card like this! I used the florals in the stamp set to decorate the inside too, with a birthday sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set:

 

Best Dressed Shoes - This is one of those cards that looks pretty simple, but took a long time to execute! I stamped twelve shoes onto Whisper White cardstock and used my All Dressed Up Dies to cut them out, then added some colour to the Petal Pink and Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends to the inside contours of the shoes for a little contrast. Then I stamped twelve shoes (plus two for the envelope) onto a selection of the Best Dressed Designer Series papers, choosing a selection of the small floral patterns and making sure that the shoes were stamped in a similar orientation so that the designs would co-ordinate and the shoes would look like pairs, then I fussy cut the outsides of the shoes and paper-pieced them onto the white backgrounds. Time consuming yes, but I love the finished effect!

Pick of The Pastels - I decided to mount each of my pairs of shoes on a stitched circle and used a selection of pastels inspired by the Best Dressed DSP (although I used Pool Party Instead of Mint Macaron as the latter was too dark). My sentiment was stamped in Blackberry Bliss on a shortened Stitched Rectangle to complete my card.

Rainbow Be Mine Stitched Die Stack for #GDP224

by Joanne James25. January 2020 16:00

As promised, here's the second of the cards I made for this week's challenge over at the Global Design Project inspired by Steffi Helmschrott's pretty rainbow card:

   

This time I used the same basic colours but decided to incorporate my rainbow in a stack of hearts diecuts from the Stitched Be Mine Dies:

 

This time I used the 'Love You Lots' sentiment from the 'Heartfelt' stampset for my greeting, heat embossing it in white onto Basic Black and fussy cutting it out. I stamped a few small black hearts but didn't like the shape, so covered them up with some black diecut ones (ssh - don't tell ;-)) I took another picture so that you could see the depth created by the stacked hearts:

 

Isn't that cool?

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

 

You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

I think I prefer this card to my earlier one - if you missed it you can see that card here. I like the fact that the more generic sentiment means this card could be used for a ton of different occasions, not just Valentine's - after all, you can only send so many Valentine's, right?! What do you think? Do you have a favourite? Leave me a comment below - I'd love to hear your thoughts!  I'll be back tomorrow with my project for the latest challenge over at The Paper Players and this week I'm the hostess. Until then, happy stampin'!

Heartfelt Rainbow Valentines for #GDP224 and #FF0051

by Joanne James25. January 2020 10:00

Hello blog friends! Did you miss me? This has been a great week for crafting, but not so for blogging I'm afraid. I had an unscheduled service outage that meant my Wednesday and Thursday posts didn't happen unfortunately. We are though back online and today I'm sharing one of the cards I made for this week's challenge over at the Global Design Project that is also perfect for the current challenge over at Festive Friday:

   

I found myself inspired by Steffi's rainbow card this week over at GDP and armed with hearts, arrows and red (and some glitter sparkle from the rhinestones) from the Festive Friday inspo list, I created this rather unconventional Valentine's Day card:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

I stayed true to the layout and rainbow colours of Steffi's card with my arrows and neutral card base, but decided to feature a bold heart-shaped Valentine sentiment. also from the 'Heartfelt' stampset, that I heat-embossed in black onto Whisper White and punched out using the co-ordinating heart punch. I added a sprinkling of black hearts that I centred with some retired epoxy hearts to echo the rainbow theme. I took another picture so that you could see the lovely shine on the heart:

 

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

 

You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Rebecca took one look at this card and declared it should be her Valentine - high praise indeed and clearly demonstrating she is past the 'pink and girly' phase!

Enjoy your day; we have a hockey league match this afternoon then are off to the theatre to see JB Priestley's 'An Inspector Calls'. I remember studying this play for GCSE English some 30+ years ago, so imagine my surprise to find it's still on the syllabus - clearly an 'oldie but goodie' from an examination perspective! If I can find the time I might be back later with another GDP entry, otherwise I'll double-up tomorrow; either way and I'll be back tomorrow with another project for the latest challenge over at The Paper Players. Until then, happy stampin'!

Clean and Simple Dressed To Impress for PP474

by Joanne James19. January 2020 10:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the fabulous Laurie to host this week and she has a fun clean and simple challenge for you to work with:

    

I knew immediately where I was going with today's card and using the current layout over at CAS Colours & Sketches ended up making not one but two cards!  Laurie's theme gave me the perfect excuse to break out my new 'Dressed To Impress' stamp set and co-ordinating Best Dressed designer series papers to create a couple of clean and simple cards perfect for a fashionista. Here's the first one, featuring the lipstick:

 

I coloured my image with my Stampin' Blends and added just a small piece of designer paper behind to preserve the all-important white space. Finally I stamped the scrolled word in a contrasting colour and popped it up over my black sentiment for added interest.

I liked this card so much I made another, this time featuring the shoe:

 

On each of my cards, I stamped my lipstick/shoe image on a post-it note and masked my main image to stamp a second one. My first lipstick looked lonely and as for the shoes, it had to be a pair - I mean, who buys a single shoe?! 

And here's another picture of both cards together:

 

So which one do you prefer? I liked the solid pink lipstick DSP on the first one ... until I used the shoes DSP which whilst it has larger images, is on a white background so feels a little 'cleaner'. So now I'm not so sure - as always, I welcome your thoughts! Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's projects for you to pin for easy reference:

Another Beautifully Braided Masked Spotlight Duo - Times Two!

by Joanne James18. January 2020 20:00

It's been bitterly cold all day today here in the UK and both of the James Juniors have braved the outdoors to play hockey for their respective teams (a 2-1 win and a 0-0 draw respectively) but instead of braving the freeze to watch today I decided to hibernate and make a few cards!

I couldn't resist the colour palette over at Color Throwdown so decided to create another pair of cards using the masked spotlight technique that I shared with you earlier this week - you can read that post by clicking here if you missed it. I had some lovely comments on those cards and they were a 'Fab Four' pick over at the Fab Friday challenge so I used the same 'Beautifully Braided' stamp set, but this time heat embossed in gold and used a layered circle framelit to create my spotlight. I first did an experiment on So Saffron coloured cardstock to see what it would look like with a coloured background. Here is the first card on a Night of Navy base:

 

And the second on a Night of Navy base with a Bermuda Bay mat:

 

Here is the pair together:

 

I quite like the effect, but the inks are not as vibrant as they are on a white base. I made a second pair that are exactly the same design, but on a Whisper White base so that you can see what I mean - here's the first one:

 

And the second one on a Bermuda Bay card base:

 

I love the brightness of the colours on this pair. I added a few of the Holiday Rhinestones or gold sequins to each card for a little subtle added bling to finish my cards. In hindsight, I should have sponged a narrower central section of Bermuda Bay so that the circle elements had a little more of all three colours on them, but that aside I really love this colour combo with the gold on a white base. Here they are together:

So what do you think - do you have a favourite pair? Leave me a comment below, I would love to hear your thoughts.

Many Hearts to Say You Are Loved AYSI 217

by Joanne James17. January 2020 12:00

Today I'm sharing my design team card for our new challenge over at As you See It where it's time for a timely theme challenge:

    

I used the current Freshly Made Sketches layout for my card and despite Heather's beautiful rustic heart image on today's badge, I chose to go full on red for today's love theme - take a look:

 

 Here's the low-down on today's card:

A Card That Is All Heart - When I saw the new Detailed Hearts Die in the Stampin' Up! Spring-Summer mini catalogue, I knew I would have to have it! This is such a versatile die for layering and works not only for Valentine's Day but lots of other occasion cards too. It's also great for making multiple cards at a time: by running it through the die cutting machine with a few different colours of co-ordinating cardstock, you can switch out and mix up the hearts and have a few cards made with relatively little extra effort - and I'm all for saving time! Here I paired mine with some retired Real Red Glimmer paper left over from my Christmas crafting and switched out some of the hearts and left others empty for the white mat layer to show through. I like the added texture this gives whilst retaining the monochromatic look. 

A Crafty Curveball - Whilst I love the Detailed Hearts Die 'as it comes', I feel obliged to point out that I didn't use it that way on today's card! I saw Jacquie's sketch over at FMS this week and paled at that vertical curve, knowing that I didn't have any dies that would work. Whilst considering my options (one of which was sponging - check out Amy O'Neill's card on the FMS challenge page (link above) to see a great example of this) I suddenly had a brainwave! The Detailed Hearts Die has an irregular edge to it anyway, but I carefully strategically snipped away some of the hearts along the right hand side to create a more defined curve. I also stuck some of the hearts that I'd removed elsewhere to my base in some of the gaps, to further emphasise it. Clever, right? Well, I thought so ;-) You can see the actual pattern of the die in the product table link below, so be sure to check that out.

You Are Loved - I wanted my hearts to be the star of today's card, so kept my sentiment simple. I didn't want to use this card as a Valentine's card, so by using the 'You are loved' sentiment from the 'Forever Lovely' stamp set, I can use it anytime to let someone know how much they mean to me. This card will probably make it's way to Rebecca in her school bag at some point - even as a teenager, she still has a soft spot for anything with sequins, sparkle and glitter!

Enjoy your day; I'm still wading through paperwork, but will be taking a break to visit the hairdressers for my monthly trim - my one luxury that I look forward to each month! Not only does it keep my hair looking good, it's a great opportunity for a natter - I've known my hairdresser for 20 years and now consider her a good friend! We often joke that she could cut my hair with her eyes closed, although thankfully she's never tried it! Anyone else out there have a hairdresser who they wouldn't want to give up? If mine ever shut up shop, I'd be beside myself! I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Beautifully Braided Masked Spotlight Card Duo

by Joanne James16. January 2020 11:10

Today I'm squeezing in a card for the current colour challenge over at Fab Friday:

 

I have a little story behind today's card and although I ended up with two cards for my efforts it's not where I started out at all. I'll come to my story shortly but firstly here's the first of today's cards:

 

And so to my story! Are you sitting comfortably? Here's the low-down on today's card:

A Colour Conundrum - I often find colours more of a challenge as a starting point for a card and a combo either speaks to me or it doesn't. The minute I saw these colours, I immediately thought how great they would look with the 'Best Dressed' stamp set on a clean and simple card with lots of white space. That is, until I saw the fabulous card that my blog friend the talented Windy Ellard created using this set in these colours for this very challenge (you can see Windy's card in the FabFriday gallery and link to it on her blog directly here). I just adore this card and whilst the one I created looked nothing like it, I loved Windy's card so much mine looked mediocre in comparison. So, I went back to the drawing board!

Spotlight on Beautifully Braided - I used the 'Beautifully Braided' stamp set and co-ordinating Braided Border Punch in my monthly technique stamp class that I held earlier this week and I promised the ladies that attended that I would create lots of other samples for my blog that would give them further ideas on how they could use their bundle in other ways. I'm also on a mission to use colours other than green with it - we are in universal agreement that we dislike the very green-based samples in the Stampin' Up! Spring-Summer catalogue where this bundle debuts (sorry Stampin' Up!) I thought the flower stem in the stamp set would be perfect for the spotlight technique, where you highlight a portion of the image and either colour it or leave it uncoloured on the spotlighted portion of the image. Here I've heat embossed the image in black and then created an inner and outer element that I have diecut with the Stitched Rectangle Dies so that I could use both elements on two separate cards - a spotlight and reverse spotlight, if you will.

Masked Spotlight - We focused on the spotlight technique in class using another card which I will share another day, but for today's cards I took that one step further and once I'd heat embossed my image on the layer that I was going to use either as my top layer frame or inner section, I carefully masked the heat embossed image with a post-it note cut to the image exactly and then used my sponge brayers to create a graduated background comprising the 3 challenge colours. When the post-it is removed, you are left with a completely white image surrounded by a beautifully sponged panel of colour. Here is the second of my cards that shows the central rectangle piece:

 

I mounted each of my cards on different coloured card bases - here's a photo of them together:

 

So what do you think? Do you like one more than the other? These cards did take a while to create, but I love them both. And they are completely different to Windy's :-).

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project for our new challenge over at As You See It. Until then, I'm off to turn my attention to the dreaded tax returns (I can't put it off any longer!) Happy stampin'!

P-P-P-Pick Up A Christmas Penguin Or Two!

by Joanne James13. January 2020 08:00

Today I'm sharing a couple of cards that I made for my 2020 Christmas card stash; I always try and make some Christmas cards throughout the year, although I must confess I often get sidetracked as the year goes on! I was encouraged by a few challenges that are currently running:

      

The theme over at Christmas Kickstart Challenge is 'penguin parade' so I decided to use one of my (now retired) penguin stamps from the 'Making Everyday Bright' stamp set, along with the CASology cue word 'repeat' to create this little festive gang - take a look:

 

I used my Stamparatus to get all of my penguins in an even row across the centre of my Whisper White card base, and taking my cue from the current challenge over at Less Is More, used my Calypso Coral and Blueberry Bushel Stampin' Write markers to add colour to their hats. I punched out the central one and gave him a coral retired enamel heart to hold. I stamped my sentiment, from the (retired) 'Christmas Crowd' set in Blueberry Bushel and popped it up on dimensionals, using it to ground my row of penguins, and finished the inside with another sentiment from this set:

 

I had a few aborted attempts at getting my penguins in a neat line, but I liked the above card when I was done so I used my Christmas Bulb Builder Punch to punch out some of my leftovers and this time stuck them in a neat line (in hindsight I should have done this the first time, it would have been much quicker!) and coloured them in with a festive Real Red and Call Me Clover colour combo:

 

Here are both of my cards together:

 

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

 

You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

The 'Making Spirits Bright' stamp set is one of the (many!) retired stamp sets I own that didn't see much love first time around, so it was fun to revisit it for today's cards. 

I have the first of my monthly card classes today using the Beautifully Braided Bundle so will be sharing some of those creations with you later this week. In the meantime, enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Congratulations Peaceful Poppies for PP473

by Joanne James12. January 2020 10:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the fabulous Anne Marie to host this week and she has what I'm sure will be a popular colour challenge for you to work with:

    

The reason I think Anne Marie's colour palette will be popular this week is that all of her key colours feature in the new Peaceful Poppies designer series paper from Stampin' Up! and try as I might to go in a different direction, I couldn't help but cut into my pack for today's card. With the help of Judy's great sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week, I was able to let the paper do all the talking - take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

Peaceful Poppies - Peaceful Poppies is one of the headline suites of the new Stampin' Up! Spring Mini Catalogue and it appears on the front cover. Beautiful line-art images accented by watercolour effects, all inspired by a field of poppies, the suite contains not one, but two bundles along with a range of co-ordinating accessories. My regular readers will know that I am a lover of designer series paper and I think the Peaceful Poppies paper is some of the most beautiful I've ever seen. One of the designs looks just like a painting and is perfect for card fronts and I cut a piece of this, featuring both Poppy Parade and Rich Razzleberry coloured poppies.

Neutral Black - My paper choice was so pretty, I couldn't bring myself to add much more to the front of my card. I used a Poppy Parade card base and added a double mount to frame my patterned paper, in Old Olive and Basic Black. I also decided to heat emboss my sentiment in white on black, as opposed to stamping the other way around - using black to 'frame' my picture and sentiment ties in to the black line-drawn design of the paper, so whilst used sparingly my neutral choice plays an important role.

Beautiful Inside And Out - Having done very little stamping on the front of my card, I decided a little interior decoration along with my split/masked sentiment was needed to redress the balance:

I added a poppy to the front of my envelope too - no naked envelopes here this week!
