A Clean and Simple TapTapTap Thank You

by Joanne James8. November 2021 09:00

Happy Monday everyone! An early and super-quick post from me today as I take a trip down memory lane with a clean and simple card inspired by a few challenges that caught my eye this week:

      

I couldn't resist that pink typewriter in the Fusion photo and delved into the retired stamp box to find my 'TapTapTap' stamp set that had the perfect image - take a look:

 

Do you remember this stamp set? The typewriter meant it was always going to be a keeper for me; for today's card I stamped it in Memento Black and coloured it with my Polished Pink Blends markers. Whilst I love the Fusion sketch too, I decided instead to use the sketch over at AAA Cards and stamped my alphabet of typed letters behind for the horizontal element. I'm also linking up over at CASology where the cue word is 'type' so today's card is right on point.

The eagle-eyed amongst you will notice that I used a typed 'thank you' sentiment on the paper in my typewriter and if you own(ed) this stamp set, will also know that this isn't a sentiment that it includes. Some clever masking and use of my Stamparatus made it easy to create this custom sentiment using other elements of the set - for a more complete explanation, check out this older post.

 

No visual summary or supplies list today - today's card is simply for your viewing pleasure. I would so love to own a pink retro typewriter just like this one! Enjoy your day; I will be getting together with a bunch of lovely ladies for a class this morning, where we will be making Christmas packaging - fun! Then more class planning and blog posts to follow before I head out on my afternoon school run  - the life of a busy Mum and part-time Stampin' Up! demonstrator is always a full one!

I'll be back tomorrow with another project - my second week hosting our challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches. Until then, happy stampin'!

 

Banner Year With Grateful Heart Thank You Card PP566

by Joanne James7. November 2021 08:00

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

          

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, Claire's theme is a timely one although it's fair to say that there is plenty to be thankful for all year round so a card that gives thanks is always a useful one to have on hand. I couldn't resist another card with Jen M's layout over at Freshly Made Sketches this week (this layout is definitely a 'go to' for me!). No wreath this time though, instead totally inspired by the current challenge photo over at The Card Concept - take a look:

 

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

I loved the colours and foliage and pumpkin elements in the Card Concept photo, along with the striking black and white tablescape, complete with gingham napkins and I incorporated all of these elements into my clean and layered card. I used black and white mats, layers and some gingham paper from the Pattern Paper hostess DSP pack, and layered a variety of foliage around one edge of a (retired) stitched circle onto which I heat-embossed my sentiment from the stamp set 'Banner Year'. I added some of the yellow decorative matt dots to my berry sprigs for a little extra dimension and detail which I really love:

Another trio of Evening Evergreen decorative matt dots onto my base complete my card. My foliage elements were taken from various die sets - all listed in the supplies list below. This is one of those cards that turned out exactly as I intended, first time - and I love it! I often spend ages procrastinating whilst card making, so it feels like a bonus when ideas translate exactly how you envisaged, don't you think?

Seasonal Swirls Autumn Leaf Wreath Thankful Card TTT138

by Joanne James4. November 2021 18:00

It's Thursday and time for a new challenge over at TicTacToe! It's the turn of Team X to host this week and the lovely Felicita is our featured designer this week. This is the fun board that we are playing along with: 

          

I also used Jen M's great sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week for my layout, the colours over at Color Dare and my final entry over at Just Us Girls this week where Bobby's wild card is 'leaves'. I went across the middle of this week's Tic Tac Toe board with Autumn/Free/Wreath for my card today, but it also works for the middle column of thankful sentiment/free/any colour too. when I saw the Color Dare inspo photo of Holly Hobby this week I was taken right back to my childhood - and more recently, to my retired designer series paper pile! I had some old Comfort Cafe paper that I thought would be perfect for the challenge as it featured bluesm yellows and browns and would also provide a suitable background for my wooden, leafy wreath - take a look:

 

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

Seasonal Swirls - I went for a simple layered wreath of twigs and leaves today, as I didn't want to do too much to detract from the pretty background paper. I added a trio of Cajun Craze flowers, cut using my Floral Squares dies, that echo the detail on the paper, and centred each with a pearl, along with a linen thread bow and backed it with a very vanilla circle stamped with a simple sentiment from the 'Sparkle of the Season' set.

Added Texture - I love how the patterned paper has a faux-texture for added detail and interest. Having decided to add a Pool Party band to the front of my card, it looked a little too stark, so in a further nod to the paper, I added a layer of vellum over the top that I had embossed with my (retired) Subtles embossing folder. This was just enough to take the vibrancy out of the colour whilst also adding another level of detail; you can see the detail of it more closely below:

 

I really like this card - the paper is great for autumn and it's good to be using up more of my paper stash. If you're not a paper hoarder like me, you could easily recreate this card using the current Harvest Meadow papers, for example. A shoutout to Jen too for the perfect sketch to showcase a wreath - I think I might have to use it again this week!!

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 Product and 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

A tictactoe board offers so many creative possibilities - how does this week's board inspire you? Why not have a go? We would love to see you in the gallery and who knows - you might be selected for Designer's Choice and be eligible to be a guest designer on a future challenge. 

Enjoy the rest of your evening; I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

by Joanne James4. November 2021 08:00

This is the first of two posts today - I'll be back with my creative post for this week's TicTacToe challenge later. First though I have news of a rare Stampin' Up! opportunity for you:

  • Are you someone who regularly restocks their craft collection, and always wants the latest and greatest Stampin’ Up! supplies?
  • Would you potentially enjoy the pile of perks that come with being a demonstrator?

There’s no better time for you to transition from customer to demonstrator.

Christmas Season Festive Foliage CCS 444

by Joanne James2. November 2021 13:00

It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches. The lovely Vicky has handed over the reins and I am your host for the month of November. Our first challenge is a colour challenge: 

     

This trio of colours is one of my favourite festive colour combinations and they compliment white beautifully. I am in full Christmas card making mode right now, so I am looking forward to seeing what you make with these colours. For my card today I went with two simple clusters of Christmas Season foliage to accent a central sentiment label:

 

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

The 'Christmas Season' stamp set is perfect for festive foliage in these colours (it also contains some lovely pinecones, although I've not used them on today's card) and I stamped a sentiment from 'Delivering Cheer' on a label cut with the Seasonal Labels dies, which includes dies that also cut out the foliage. Another sentiment on the inside of my card from the same set and a little extra corner detail complete today's card:

 

I love the Real Red card base for a Christmas card - I also added a trio of rhinestones for some festive sparkle:

 

This is one of those cards that can be easily mass produced - just stamp a bunch of foliage pieces and sentiment labels and then have fun arranging the pieces. Kind of like flower arranging without the mess!

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'm also having another entry into Just Us Girls challenge this week with their wild card theme of 'leaves' - yesterday autumn, today winter!

As a reminder, for our colour challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colours. You may also use neutral colours; however, the challenge colours should be the most noticeable ones featured on your card. We use Stampin' Up! colour names for reference, but you are welcome to use any other companies' products as long as you match the challenge colours as closely as possible. What will you make with my colours this week? I can't wait to find out and look forward to visiting your blogs in due course.

 

One last reminder: the Eden's Garden Collection pre-release is now available to order! Read all about it and order yours in this post here.

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Grateful For Stitched Leaves Trio

by Joanne James1. November 2021 14:05

Happy Monday everyone! I have a busy week as I am playing catch up again now that the James Juniors are back at school following their half term break, so this is a quick post from me today. I'm sharing a card that uses Jen T's great sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, this week's Color Throwdown colours and the theme over at Just Us Girls where they are playing with leaves:

      

I was intrigued by Jen's sketch this week and loved the idea of three squares on a slimline card. When you look at my card you will think I made it in super-quick time - and I did, but only after an exponential amount of crafty procrastination and numerous failed attempts! Here's what I ended up with:

 

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

Yes - a simple trio of my favourite stitched leaves, inset into a trio of stitched squares and switched about for some mix-and-match autumn colour, with a sentiment from the 'Sparkle of the Season' stamp set. Why so difficult? Well, I couldn't decided between leaves, snowflakes, trees ... the list goes on! Then I decided I wanted to use the larger sycamore-style leaf, but try as I might I couldn't use three and create a slimline that would fit in an envelope for posting. I also fiddled with my Stitched Greenery Die - and failed to successfully adapt it for a long slimline card so gave that up as a bad job. the moral of the story? If in doubt, simple is best! Sometimes trying to complicate things just doesn't pay. Then to top it all, I struggled to get my card to lie flat for photographing - so if you're looking at it and can see a slight distortion, I'm afraid that's why. I also added a little stamping to the inside of my card:

 

I hope you like today's card and have enjoyed my tale of the trials of creating it! I love the finished result those - sometimes stitched dies really are all you need!

 

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

Eden's Garden Pre-Release Fancy Fold Birthday Card PP565

by Joanne James31. October 2021 08:00

Today it's Sunday (and I hope those of you reading this who are in the UK enjoyed a lie-in and remembered to turn your clocks back!) - time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the fabulous Ann to host this week and as it's the fifth Sunday of the month she has a fun TicTacToe challenge for you to work with:

 

I have a very special card to share with you today! Lots of photos and news of an exclusive product pre-release that is happening this week on 2nd November, so time to buckle up and sit tight - here we go! I went along the diagonal of the TTT grid from bottom left to top right with foil/patterned paper/diecut for my card today, which is a fancy fold birthday card featuring the new Eden's Garden suite. Here's a first look at my card when closed and then I'll tell you a little more about the products in the Eden's Garden suite:

 

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

Eden's Garden - The Eden's Garden bundle, comprising the Eden's garden cling stamp set and Eden Dies, will be included in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalogue, however is being released for sale this week on Tuesday 2nd November, so this is the perfect opportunity to explore it before the official release.

 

Pre-Release Exclusives - In addition to the bundle, for the duration of the pre-release only, you will also be able to order a number of additional exclusive products, that will be available only while supplies last. The other items in the Eden's Garden Collection pre-release include 12"x12" specialty designer paper, cotton paper and garden gems. Here's the flyer detail so that you can see it in more detail:

 

Eden's Garden Fancy Fold - Now you've had the detail, it's time to check out my card! As I mentioned above it's a fancy fold; the talented Elizabeth Price had made a couple of cards with a similar fold that I just loved and she coined it a 'hokey pokey' card, because the back side is in front, the right side tucks into the left and there's detail inside that could in fact be the front of the card. To explain this in more detail, here's another photo of the card closed:

 

When you remove the belly band that holds the folds in place, you can start to see how it opens, and you can see the embossed detail:

 

This is what it looks like fully open:

 

My card base is Soft Succulent and it measures 6" by 12" and is scored along the long edge at 1", 6" and 10 3/8". All of the papers come from the Ever Eden specialty designer series paper pack - beautiful, soft serene greens of Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen with touches of gold foil detail. The sentiment on my belly band comes from the Eden's Garden stamp set, and I used each of the Eden's Dies in different ways on my project: the largest rectangle frame is embossed onto the front right panel of my card, with the smaller rectangle frame as the base for my belly band centrepiece, which also includes a banner piece in gold foil and some sprigs diecut from Soft Succulent shimmer vellum for added subtle sparkle and shine:

 

I used the edge border die to add detail to my fold out edges, cut in the beautifully soft Evening Evergreen cotton paper:

 

Inside my card, I used more of the paper and diecut foliage with another sentiment piece (this time from the 'Peaceful Moments' stamp set) for my pictoral panel and added some stamping of a repeating pattern using the main foliage image in the Eden's Garden stamp set:

 

 Here's the birthday sentiment embellishment in more detail:

 

The launch of the Eden's Garden pre-release coincide with my lovely Mums' birthday, so I thought this card would be perfect to send her my love and best wishes. For her version of the card, I also added another shortened banner to the outside panel, as show below:

The sentiment is from the 'A Wish For Everything' stamp set, which really does have a sentiment for every occasion:

I thought I'd share this additional detail with you as it's useful to see how you can add in a more personal greeting with this kind of card. I'm safe to blog my card today as my Mum rarely reads my blog so won't see this ahead of time; she loves greens and is a big fan of a fancy birthday card though, so I know she will love it. 

If you like the products in the Eden's Garden pre-release, do be sure to pop back Tuesday when these items will be available to order in the online store. the Eden's Garden bundle is also the focus for my online technique card class on Monday 6th December - do get in touch if you would like to join me, you would be more than welcome!

Peace On Earth Christmas Card

by Joanne James30. October 2021 16:14

Hurrah it's the weekend! A quick card from me today that I made earlier in the week for a couple of challenges:

The current challenge over at Time Out has a theme of 'Down to Earth'; I didn't use the optional twist of kraft cardstock because I wanted to use one of my favourite Christmas stamps with some retired paper I have been hoarding that dictated the colour scheme of today's card - take a look:

 

I thought the retired World of Good Embossed Specialty Designer Series Paper would make the perfect themed backdrop to go with the 'peace on earth' stamp set from the 'Thinking Thanks and Peace' stamp set. I heat-embossed my stamp in gold onto Basic Grey and coloured my dove with my Stampin' chalk marker:

 

A sentiment and an offcut strip of that beautiful embossed paper complete the inside of my card:

 

This stamp is very much a 'one and done' so great for quick cards, but it can be easily dressed up with the addition of some background themed stamping or designer paper, as I've done here. This stamp is a favourite of mine so I am also joining up with the lovely ladies over at SUO Challenges where they are asking us to showcase our favourite holiday products (so many to choose from!)

Well Defined And The Meaning Of Christmas AYSI262

by Joanne James29. October 2021 13:00

I'm back with my second card of the day: this time I'm sharing my design team card for our new challenge over at As you See It where it's time for a festive 'fill in the blank' challenge:

    

I used the sketch over at Try Stamping on Tuesday for my layout and I knew exactly which stamp I needed for today's 'fill in the blank' - take a look:

 

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

Well Defined - This sentiment from the 'Well Defined' stamp set sums up perfectly what Christmas means to me: family. Christmas is the one time of the year when my immediate family is always able to be together - no work, no school, no sport, simply the opportunity to spend quality time which each other and enjoy each other's company. We are often hosting extended family during the festive season, so it tends to be a busy family time and not an especially restful one (not for me, anyway!). Last year's 'lockdown Christmas' was unusually quiet for us, but I didn't enjoy it any less; if anything, I personally enjoyed it even more as I was freed from many of the hostess duties that normally fall to me. That said, a return to normality this year will be welcomed - there is nothing like the presence of family to sum up all that is good about Christmas, for sure.

A Play On Words - I paired my sentiment with some Whimsy and Wonder designer paper featuring gifts - it seemed appropriate given the play on the words 'presence' and 'presents' in the sentiment. i love the non-traditional colour combination of this paper and the iridescent foil detailing - so pretty! 

Scalloped border Detail - I backed my designer paper with a panel of Misty Moonlight that I added a scalloped border to one edge, cut using the Scalloped Contour Dies; it has a subtle pierced edge detail that I love. I also added a sparkly ribbon bow to complete my card:

So what does Christmas mean to you? I would love you to leave me a comment below - better still, make a card and link it up to our gallery during the next 2 weeks!

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. 

Here's a summary of our challenge rules:

  • Create any card, scrapbooking page, 3D project or packaging project that fits the challenge.
  • Please include the challenge graphic and link back to the challenge in your blog post. Turn off word verification so we can leave you lots of lovely comments. Make sure you link the post not the whole blog to the Linky. Use #AYSIXXX when uploading to a public gallery.
  • If you’re unsure about ‘the rules’, check the details under the Challenge Guidelines tab on the As You See It Challenge homepage.
  • In a Fill in the Blank challenge, complete the sentence in the Challenge Banner with the phrase that is true for you and create your project using the words you used. Tell us what you said in your blog or on your site.
We look forward to seeing your creations in the AYSI gallery.

Enjoy your day; we have haircuts, lunch out and shopping on the cards today as we continue to enjoy the half-term school break. I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Shimmer Floral Heart For World Kindness Day FF096

by Joanne James29. October 2021 09:00

This is my first post of a two-post Friday and I'm here with my card for the new challenge over at Festive Friday. 

  

The challenge that we are celebrating this week is 'World Kindness Day' which is on November 13th. Remember the fun thing is that at Festive Friday you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion; your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. This week I used flowers, pearls, embossing, heart, pastel colours and shimmer and this is what I came up with:

 

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

Floral Heart - I used my Floral Heart Die to cut my centrepiece out of Shimmery White cardstock and embellished it with some basic pearls that I coloured using my Fresh Freesia Blends to co-ordinate with my background.  

Parisian Shimmer - Alongside that fabulous detailed floral heart, there is even more shimmer to be had with a layer of Fresh Freesia shimmer vellum. I embossed it with my Parisian Flourish embossing folder - isn't that embossed detail amazing?! This isn't a folder I use often, but I thought it worked well with the design of today's card. I also added a open weave ribbon bow and some rhinestones and silver twine for added sparkle. 

A Sneak Peek - Finally, the sentiment I used on today's card is a 'sneak peek' from the new 'Eden's Garden' suite, an early release collection that will be available to order from the 2nd November, including some exclusive products that will only be available as part of the early release. I just love the words I used on the front of my card - they seem particularly appropriate to share on a card for World Kindness Day:

 

I hope you liked today's card - more details on the Eden's Garden Collection pre-release to follow.
