Season of Chic Speedy Seashells AYSI 301

by Joanne James16. June 2023 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 the 'dreaded' speed challenge:

    

I know some of you dread the idea of creating a card in under 10 minutes, but with a little preparation it doesn't have to be tricky - take a look:

 

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

I knew that I would be using the shell stamps and dies from the Seasons of Chic stamp set and Chic Dies for my card today as they are my only current seashells, so I grabbed each of the dies and laid up each of the stamps and found a piece of the co-ordinating (retired) Texture Chic designer series paper to use for my background. This is the easiest way to get big design impact in the shortest possible time. Having found my sheet of paper, I pulled out the co-ordinating ink pads and cardstock (Petal Pink, Pebbled Path and an offcut of distressed gold), started my timer and set to work!

I cut a piece of designer paper to cover my entire cardbase, stamped a shell and diecut it along with three more in solid cardstock colours all in one go to save time, the stamped my sentiment onto a banner of Basic White and attached it to my cardfront, anchored with my shells. I added some clear Wink of Stella to my stamped shell and a sprinkling of basic pearls to complete my cardfront:

 

I did a quick timecheck and was doing so well, I even managed a quick stamped detail on the inside of my card within the allotted time:

 

And - stop the clock! I used a total of 7 minutes 59 seconds to create today's card - I managed to surprise myself at just how much time I had left over! My desk was a mess and I hadn't cleaned a single stamp, but it just goes to show if you need a card in a hurry, it can be done! The designer paper definitely does the heavy lifting on this card - the same background could be created using the stamps in the set, but it would take sooo much longer! I am also sharing today's beach-inspired card with thoughts of summer with the team over at Inkspirational where they are looking for seasonal cards.

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

Love For You Anniversary Card TTT212

by Joanne James8. June 2023 17:00

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 Betty is our featured designer this week. This is the fun board that we are playing along with: 

    

I went down the right hand column with yellow, diecut and floral and used the Sketch Saturday layout to make a bright and colourful wedding anniversary card - take a look:

 

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

I was rather pressed for time this week and I needed a wedding anniversary card, so I grabbed some retired Abstract Beauty designer paper for my torn layer and used the colours as the inspiration for the rest of my card: 

The 'Love For You' stamp set and dies did all the heavy lifting on this one and I finished by mounting the whole thing on a Crushed Curry card base with a couple of gold gems to decorate. This is rather bright and colourful, but I think it still works for a modern anniversary card. This one is headed to my brother- and sister-in-law who are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary next week. I could have gone with a more traditional silver to celebrate this milestone, but they are anything but a typical couple so I think this card suits them perfectly!

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

Simple Stamping And A Zoo Crew Knitting Llama CCS 513

by Joanne James6. June 2023 13:00

It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches. Shannon is hosting this month and our first challenge is a colour challenge: 

 

For my card today I went super clean and simple with a fun card perfect for a crafty friend - take a look:

 

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

I decided to indulge in a spot of fussy cutting of my Zoo Crew designer paper and trim out one of the knitting llamas! The Zoo Crew paper is choc-full of animals doing all kinds of fun things - and what could be more comical than a knitting llama, right?! Some of the images are black and white, some partially coloured, and some completely coloured and ready to use. The chair and wool that the llama is knitting with were already coloured, so I just used my Blends to add in a little more light Old Olive to the wool, some Petal Pink to the ears and a little dark Smoky Slate to the skin and outline of my llama:

I added a sentiment from the 'Crafting With You' stamp set which seemed to fit the image perfectly. This is a great #simplestamping card - just stamps, ink and paper and a little designer paper. The Zoo Crew paper is another of those that are available at 15% discount in this month's designer series paper sale. If you fussy cut the images (you can also diecut many of them with the Zany Zoo co-ordinating dies too, but these are by no means essential - they are easy to cut out with scissors) you will be able to make an absolute ton of simple cards. They can be paired with whatever sentiments you have to hand - now is the time to stock up for sure! Links to the online store below - or contact me if you would like to participate in my current discounted paper share.

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. 

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. For this challenge, the colours include two of those that were retired in the recent current refresh, so feel free to substitute with Petal Pink and Old Olive as the nearest current alternatives, as I've done. 

For the second day running, it is decidedly cooler than the weather forecast and looking rather overcast. No matter - I am still wearing a summer dress and willing the sun to come out, although at this rate I may have to add socks and a cardigan later!! Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Watercolour World Adventure Awaits AYSI300

by Joanne James2. June 2023 12:00

Today I'm sharing my design team card for our new challenge over at As you See It where we have a special challenge for you - we are celebrating our 300th challenge! It's theme week and our wonderful leader Heather C has chosen the theme of 'adventure' for our milestone challenge:

       

I was inspired by the patriotic red, white and blue colours of the Card Concept and the sketch over at Try Stamping on Tuesday to create my clean and layered card - take a look:

 

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

Today's card uses a combination of 'something old (retired), something carried over and something new': my something new is those Nested Essentials Dies again, where I used one to create the aperture in my vellum layer to 'frame' my map, courtesy of the background stamp 'Watercolour World'. I  bordered it with a thin strip of red and white stripes and finding nothing in my current stash that has an adventure theme or wording, I finished my card with a sentiment made from a retired Sweet Silhouettes die and the 'Let's Set Sail' stamp set:

I really like the effect of the vellum frame - a great way to focus on the map, without the frame obscuring the detail. A great tip when you use vellum in a frame in this way is to cut your piece wider than you need and wrap it around the layers below and adhere firmly on the reverse. This way your vellum layer stays in place, without there being any unsightly visible glue on the front of your card.

A simple layered card that I will keep ready for when one of the many teenagers I know announces they are heading to foreign parts for a gap year adventure.

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. 

What does the theme of adventure mean to you? Why not make a project and share it with us for our current challenge. Since we are celebrating, there will be 6 winners this week, one chosen by each member of the Design Team and each will be eligible to receive a prize from Stampin' Up! or Clarity.

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.

Wanted To Say Happy Birthday CCS 512 Double

by Joanne James30. May 2023 12:00

It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches. We have five Tuesdays in the month of May so this week it is time for our double challenge, featuring a previous sketch and retired colour combination:

 

For my card I went with a colourful clean and simple birthday card - take a look:

 

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

For my card today I actually took my inspiration from a card which recently appeared in my Pinterest feed that I couldn't actually find a source for; I thought it was a great way to use up leftover cardstock strips and a neat way to include this trio of bold colours whilst preserving my 'white space' so I adapted it to suit this layout. I used my Wanted To Say Dies for my greeting, this time featuring the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment. I cut the outer sentiment from the white panel, then adhered the inner piece to a foam sheet before diecutting the main sentiment detail, so that I could inset it into the negative space in the main panel:

 

A trio of orange dots complete my card.

We use Stampin' Up! color 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. For this challenge, I didn't have any of the retired colours so I used my closest current matches: Daffodil Delight, Tahitian Tide and Pumpkin Pie.

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

Tree Rings Embossed Geode Card TTT210

by Joanne James25. May 2023 16:00

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 Vicky is our featured designer this week. This is the fun board that we are playing along with: 

       

I went across the bottom row with diecut, ombre and shapes to create a masculine card for this week's TGIF Challenge that gave me the opportunity to use some existing product in a whole new way - take a look:

 

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

I was captivated by the fabulous blues of the Just Us Girls mood board this week and I was excited to see the geode in the top right photo, as I've wanted to try and create one of these for a while. I saw a card by fellow demonstrator Carrie Button that used the Tree Rings Dies and co-ordinating embossing folder to create a geode and wanted to have a go (here's a link to her helpful video tutorial if you'd like to take a look at how she did it). I made my geode slightly differently so I've included step by step instructions in case you'd like to recreate:

  • Take a piece of Tahitian Tide cardstock and run through the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder, having inked the upper side of the EF with Versamark.
  • Heat emboss the embossed tree ring with metallic silver embossing powder and cut out with co-ordinating die.
  • Colour the geode: use a Basic Grey Stampin' Write marker for the outside, then use a combination of Tahitian tide, Azure Afternoon and Blueberry Bushel Blends to colour the inner rings.
  • Add fine line detail with Stampin' Write markers in the same colours.
  • Brush the ombre blue section with clear Wink of Stella, then add some loose (retired) Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the centre.
  • Finish the centre by adhering a combination of blue and clear rhinestone basic jewels (colour them with your Stampin' Blends).

That's it! Check out the sparkly detail - I can't tell you just how awesome this is in real life:

 

I wanted my geode to take centre stage, so the only other decoration was a strip of (retired) Mercury Glass Acetate that I added to my Blueberry Bushel card base. I used a sentiment from the 'Waves of Inspiration' stamp set as I though this worked well - this geode is most definitely a thing of beauty as far as I'm concerned!

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

Enjoy your day; today is the last exam day for the James Juniors this side of half-term; we are looking forward to a brief, if revision-filled, respite for the next week, before we start again. The youngest of the James Juniors proudly announced this morning that he has passed the halfway point - ever the optimist, bless him! I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Crafting With You Embroidered Flowers In Blue AYSI 299

by Joanne James19. May 2023 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 recipe challenge chosen by Deborah who is back from her travels this week:

    

I sometimes struggle with recipe challenges, but I just received some new goodies so grabbed them along with the sketch over at Try Stamping on Tuesday and set to work - take a look:

 

 Here's the low-down on today's card:

Shades of Blue - I decided for today's card that I wanted to play with the new blue that is part of the Brights colour family, Azure Afternoon, so that's what I chose for my card base (I added some tone-on-tone stamping using a stamped-off flower to create a subtle pattern detail) and the piece of watercolour-effect designer paper from the Bright & Beautiful paper pack that runs across the centre of my card. This is such a lovely shade of blue: not as turquoise as Tahitian Tide, not as dark as the old Pacific Point. I also used this colour to stamp my flowers, adding in a second blue, the returning Blueberry Bushel, to highlight the flower leaves. I also added a strip of this darker blue behind my horizontal panel and added some ribbon and a bow in some retired Blueberry Bushel ribbon that I rescued from my retired box - yay! I love the way these two blue go together.

Diecuts and Frames - There are two sets of diecuts on today's card: the horizontal border and the scallop-edged square are both adapted from the Scalloped Contours Dies, but the dies that ultimately inspired today's card are those that contain this sweet embroidery hoop and centre - the Crafting With You Dies. I thought the embroidery hoop would be a clever 'frame' and perfect way to highlight the emboidered flowers that are part of the co-ordinating stamp set:

 

A Handmade Hug - I decided to leave the front of my card sentiment-free because it's always useful to have some more general cards to hand, but I couldn't resist adding one of the sweetest sentiments from the 'Crafting With You' stamp set to the inside of my card:

 

Isn't that just lovely?! I actually managed to tick off the recipe ingredients with relative ease for once. If you are a fan of blues, you should definitely check out the Design Team cards - they really are fabulous!

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

I am rushing about today, running errands and feeling unusually tired - I definitely have that Friday feeling! Enjoy your day and I'll hopefully be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Sending Birthday Wishes In Pink CCS 511

by Joanne James16. May 2023 13:00

It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge over at CAS Colours & SketchesThis week's challenge is a sketch challenge and Cecile has asked that we make a square card with a focal sentiment and patterned background:

       

Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch when making your card. 

For my card today I chose monochromatic pinks with a touch of silver to create a simple stencilled background for a feminine birthday card for a discerning teenager - take a look:

 

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

I took my square card base and using some stencils I made with various circle punches and some window sheet, I added Melon Mambo and Bubble Bath ink using my blending brushes, varying the intensity to give some depth to the colour. I heat-embossed part of my sentiment in silver and used a diecut 'sending' in silver foil backed with vellum as my centrepiece:

 

A sprinkle of basic rhinestones added a final touch of sparkle. This is one of those cards that could work in lots of colours and is thoroughly inoffensive - so perfect for the discerning teenager! Since I went with pinks, I'm also playing along over at Addicted to CAS with my monochrome pinks and also celebrating with the team over at AAA Cards as they celebrate their 9th birthday with CAS pink birthday cards too - the balloons on the inspo board also inspired my bubbly background!

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. 

Please excuse today's photos - I struggled with that foil diecut and the lighting and didn't have time to retake. I have a super-short day today as the youngest of teh James Juniors has 2 exams and is on early pick up, so just time for a speedy lunch then I'm back in the car for the school run! Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

He's The Man Cheers To The Years TTT208

by Joanne James11. May 2023 17:00

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 is the fun board that we are playing along with: 

    

I was a little stuck for current sets that fit the bill so decided to dig into my recently retired stash and use up some of my designer series paper. I decided to go across the top row of the board with masculine, diecut and beer or drink and this is what I came up with, using the current sketch over at Sunday Stamps for my layout:

 

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

I used two panels of retired He's The Man designer series paper, rotating the pattern on the smaller one to follow the same diagonal lines as the base one (rather than the horizontal/vertical), added a banner of Mango Melody to pick up on the yellow in the diecut that I used as my focal point. This diecut was one on a pre-printed sheet in the paper pack, and I backed it with a scalloped diecut circle in Sahara Sand to neaten the edge:

I added a trio of Mango Melody resin dots to complete the front of my card and added the only stamping with a sentiment from the current 'Charming Sentiments' stamp set to the inside to finish my card:

No visual summary of the key products used on today's project or supplies list as almost everything I used on today's card - except for the Early Espresso ink and cardstock and the stamp set I used inside - is retired. I hope that it inspires you regardless to keep creating with your retired product or gives you an idea of how you can adapt it to work with the new.

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 your day; I am heading out to a champagne reception this evening to celebrate the eldest of the James Juniors final formal week of school - something of a milestone! I'll be back tomorrow with another project for the new challenge over at Festive Friday. Until then, happy stampin'!

 

Ringed With Nature New Home Card

by Joanne James10. May 2023 17:00

Today I'm sharing a card for the current CAS on Friday Challenge with the theme of 'New Home' that was inspired by the photo over at Inspired By that you can see below:

 

I was delighted that this card was chosen as the winner of the last Inspired By challenge and I just had to play along again this week. Aren't those stacking elephants cute?! Now you might be thinking how did the photo inspire today's card to welcome someone to their new home - with not an elephant in sight! Well take a look at my card and I'll explain all - here it is:

 

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

Ringed With Nature - The sweet little house from the 'Ringed With Nature' stamp set is perfect for a new home card, so I knew I wanted to make this my focal point. The neutral colours of the Inspired By photo were perfectly suited to my house and I liked the idea of blocks of colour. Whilst my blocks of colour are represented by the individual elements of my design - Very Vanilla card base, Basic Grey roof, Crumb Cake walls and Petal Pink heart - rather than elephants, the inspiration is there. In addition to a scored frame, I diecut my heart before adding to my house using one of the Give It A Whirl Dies for a little extra detail:

 

Sweet Songbirds and Home Life - Both of the sentiments on my set come from other sets, as there isn't one in 'Ringed With Nature' that's suitable. My tiny 'Welcome' is from 'Sweet Songbirds' and the greeting on the inside is from a long-retired set called Home Life (with the stamped heart from Ringed With Nature):

 

Songbirds Of A Different Kind - I have been having a conversation with one of my Paper Player teamies, the lovely LeAnne, this week about feathered friends of a different kind. LeAnne has many beautiful birds visit her garden feeders all year round (check out her blog here if you're interested - I've linked to Sunday's Paper Players post as it has some fab bird photos!) and I was sharing with her the latest developments on the blue tit family that hatched in one of my birdboxes last week. For any of my international readers who would like to know more about this very British bird, you can read about them here. I have two blue tit boxes on the side of my house that are fitted with cameras, so I am able to see everything that is going on inside them without disturbing the occupants. The current nest was home to 10 birds, although I am currently only counting 8 chicks (it's not unusual to lose one or two within the first few days, as the strongest babies win the battle for food). It's now a week since the eggs hatched and whilst the chicks are still tiny and quite ugly, their wings are starting to develop today and they are growing fast. As a treat for LeAnne, I thought I would upload a couple of short video clips of the activity today; in the clips below you can see both the male and female flying back and fore (the entry to the bird house is at the bottom of the screen), feeding and sitting on the nest. The second, shorter clip shows more of the colouring on the adult bird. Please bear in mind I recorded this video of the tv on my phone, so it's basic at best - the nest is right at the very back of the nesting box, so the video camera does lose a little of the detail at the top of the screen. That said - enjoy!

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

Enjoy your day; mine has felt a little short as my afternoon school run was brought forward, on account of the youngest of the James Juniors having had two exams today and as such finishing earlier. We are officially one subject down - just 9 more to go!! I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!
