Pampered Pets CAS Sympathy Card CCS 410

by Joanne James9. March 2021 13:00

It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches. This week's challenge is a sketch challenge and YoonYoung has asked that we create something with a crescent shape as the main feature on our card:

   

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

For my card today I was tempted to go with a spray of florals or even dig out a retired baby stamp that would be perfect for this card (in fact, if you'd like to check out this old post you will see two cards that I made for this very challenge using the exact set that I had in mind!), but in the end decided to go with something a little more obtuse that ended up ultra-CAS - take a look:

 

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

I decided to go with the dog from 'Pampered Pets' for today's card - you can see the distinct curved shape of my pooch, right?!

I heat embossed my dog in white onto Basic Black cardstock for a change and used the Pets Dies to diecut out the shape with ease. The angle of the dog fitted around the sentiment perfectly and all I needed to do was add a red resin heart for a pop of colour on my otherwise monochromatic pet sympathy card. I actually started with a card that had a lot more going on (I actually turned that card into something else so will share another time) but for a variety of different reasons evolved beyond the sketch, so I decided to pare things right back and go ultra CAS. I debated with adding twine or even some sponging behind my pooch, but decided to go with the 'less is more' look after the positive comments I received on the one layer floral I created for last week's challenge. Besides, when it comes to the loss of a beloved pet, I'm not sure that any amount of frills or card details take away from the sense of loss that an owner feels. 

I am also linking today's card up over at Addicted to CAS where their codeword is 'Animal' and I'm hoping they will appreciate my CAS efforts. The simplicity of today's card rely does not reflect the thought and effort that went into it - I find that's often the way where 'clean and simple' is concerned!

I am 'home alone' today for the first time in months as both James Juniors are now officially Covid-free and back at school. So I shall be playing the radio at full blast and making tea whenever I like, without fear of remonstration! Sometimes one must delight in the simple pleasures of life!! Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Flowering Cactus Product Medley #mojosketch554

by Joanne James7. March 2021 21:00

Today I'm sharing an extra card with you! I made it earlier in the week using the current Mojo Monday sketch for the challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments and had hoped to share yesterday, but simply ran out of time!

   

So I thought I'd grab a quick few minutes to share my make with you - take a look:

 

 Here's the low-down on today's card:

This card was my first outing with the Flowering Cactus Product Medley and it was perfect for that inspiration photo over at Hand Stamped Sentiments - cactus galore and pops of colour. I've not showcased a Product Medley on my blog before, so if it's a concept that's unfamiliar to you, let me explain! A Product Medley contains stamps, dies, papers and accessories that co-ordinating with each other perfectly and no instructions - leaving you free to create whatever you want. I'm not usually attracted to cactus stamps, but I particularly liked the dies and sentiments in this stamp set so thought I'd get one and have a play. I went big with the layers on this card, with lots of dimension:

 

I mostly used diecuts, paper and elements from the kit on this card, with the only stamping for my sentiment and on the inside of my card:

 

I really like the effect though and am pleased with my first attempt. Can't wait to make more with this box of prickly loveliness!

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

Flowers For Every Season - Spring Butterfly Panel Card

by Joanne James7. March 2021 09:00

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

    

Whilst it has been a little chillier again here in the UK this week, there are still so many wonderful signs that spring is in the air. The daffodils are starting to open, the first lambs have been born on a neighbouring farm so today's card is full of spring colour - take a look:

 

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

Flowers For Every Season - I decided that for today's card I wanted to see an injection of spring colour, so reached for the Flowers For Every Season designer paper pack. This pack contains some very bold, bright florals and the one I chose, with its tulips amongst other flowers, is just perfect for spring. I used the three panel layout over at Paper Craft Crew so that the pattern didn't become too overwhelming, and backed each one with a thin border of Just Jade and a fancy frame diecut with the Ornate Layers Dies in Whisper White.

Butterfly Beauty - I chose a sentiment that I thought reflects the optimism that comes with the spring season, and embellished it with a layered butterfly cut using the Butterfly Beauty dies (I snipped this one away from the larger die):

 

I also used another of the dies in the same set to create my horizontal pieces of greenery. 

Elongated Envelope - In order to comfortably accommodate my three panels, I made my card slightly longer than a standard card front (it measures 18cm instead of 14.9cm). The photo below shows the difference in sizes:

 

This meant I needed to create a custom envelope. Rather than start from scratch though, I thought I'd share with you a quick trick that you can use to convert a standard envelope to fit a larger card. All you need to do is glue the envelope closed, then slice off the end on the short side and add some some designer paper to create a new closure:

It's really straightforward: Take two strips of coordinating DSP, one measuring 4cm x 30.5cm (1 1/2" x 6") and one 4cm x 10.5cm and attach the longer one to the cut edge of the front of the envelope, with an even overhang top and bottom. Measure 18cm from the end of the envelope and score a line along your DSP, cut away the corners to create your flap then flip your envelope over to the reverse. Fold over the overhangs and glue those in place then align the shorter piece across the back of the envelope and glue to the base. Add tear and tape to the envelope flap and you're done. Here's a photo of the reverse of the envelope extension which hopefully makes some sense of my instructions above:

 

 I also added some Magenta Madness ribbon to cover my seam as my card will be hand delvered rather than posted - you can always leave this off if you need to be able to post your card.

 

What do you think? I hope you found the envelope instructions useful and you like my card full of spring colour and flowers. I'm also linking up today over at SUO Challenges, where the theme is 'things that fly' - I think my butterfly qualifies on that front!

Grandad's Treasures of Life AYSI 245

by Joanne James5. March 2021 13:00

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:

 

The often-dreaded masculine card! I decided to go with one of my current favourites from the January-June mini catalogue as I wanted to give this set another outing and create something a little different to my previous card with this set (you can see that card here if you missed it). Here's my card for today:

 

 Here's the low-down on today's card:

Treasures of Life - I decided to use the Grandad and Grandson image from the 'Treasures of Life' stamp set as the main feature of my masculine card today. This is such a beautiful set to celebrate the joys of being a grandparent. I stamped my image in Early Espresso and gave it a rough watercolou in earthy tones, picking out some of the details of the little boy in Night of Navy. I stamped my image on some retired Naturals White card for added texture and added another sentiment to the inside of my card from the set:

 

I left it otherwise fairly blank as I haven't yet decided what occasion I'm going to use this card for and I may add a birthday greeting too in due course.

All About Texture - I used lots of textural elements on today's card: a piece of Early Espresso embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder, a piece of the In Good Taste designer series paper. along with the texture added by the navy twine and my naturals white cardstock. I think the combination of elements along with the earthy brown tones give my card a homely, cosy feel. What do you think?

 

Tasteful Labels and an Old Faithful - The final element to complete this week's recipe challenge was to use a diecut: I used one of the Tasteful Labels dies for my sentiment, along with one of my old faithful Stitched Rectangle Dies to frame my watercoloured image.

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. 

So how will you use this week's recipe?

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.
We look forward to seeing your creations in the AYSI gallery.

HB2U Hey Birthday Chicks Card

by Joanne James3. March 2021 22:16

Today was one of those days that did not go to plan - do you ever have days like that?! So I'm late squeezing in a quick post for this week's Inspired By Challenge and another entry for the birthday celebrations over at Time Out:

   

I used both the sketch layout and number inspiration over at Inspired By for my fun birthday card today - take a look:

 

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

I created a custom sentiment using my Playful Alphabet Dies, flanked by some happy-go-lucky party chicks from the Hey Birthday Chicks bundle. I used some of the Ice Cream Corner designer paper for my background base and carried through the colours of the stripes for the other elements of my card:

 

Some quick stamping to the inside completes my card:

#SimpleStamping Art Gallery One Layer Floral Birthday Card CCS409

by Joanne James2. March 2021 13:00

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

        

Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch when making your card. For my card today I thought I would take the opportunity to use these colours for an oh-so-simple CAS card and embrace this week's Less Is More ongoing celebrations too with a one layer floral - take a look:

 

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

Today's card uses just 5 items: the Art Gallery stamp set, 3 ink pads and some Basic White thick cardstock - #SimpleStamping at its best. The Art Gallery stamp set is perfect for beginners and experienced crafters alike; the double-layered florals are very forgiving in terms of needing to be stamped accurately and the two-step stamping adds interest and the illusion of texture.  Having recently re-inked my Calypso Coral ink pad, it was stamping quite dark but you can see the contrast between it and the Terracotta Tile overlay more clearly below:

 

Whilst I was making this card, I also experimented with adding in some gold leaf; I stamped an identical card and added some gold leaf detail to the Terracotta Tile layer and I added a trio of gold gilded gems:

 

I discounted it as my main card today as it obscured too much of the Teracotta Tile colour, even though I tried to add a little more in with some stamens:

 

I thought I would share it with you as it shows a quick way to step up my original card. Here are both cards together:

 

Which one do you prefer? After much playing around, I think actaully 'less is more' and the most basic card is my favourite. 

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! 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.

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

Hey Birthday Chick Meets So Much Happy

by Joanne James1. March 2021 18:47

Today I'm squeezing a card for the current challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches and Color Dare (bottom row):

   

I procrastinated somewhat with Judy's sketch this week (too many ideas!) In the end I took a couple of liberties and went with a floating birthday chicken - take a look:

 

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

Hey Birthday Chick - I  kept the basic layout of Judy's sketch but used a landscape rather than portrait orientiation, in order that I could accommodate my 'happy' diecut into the horizontal stripe. I thought the floating chicken was the perfect shape to cross the horizontal element - and so easy to cut out with my Birthday Chick Dies too.

 So Much Happy - I used my 'Happy' die to create the horizontal element of the sketch and paired it with one of the stamped sentiments from the bundled 'So Much Happy' stamp set (my second sketch liberty, as I need to position it below rather than above the horizontal strip). I used another sentiment from this set on the inside of my card, along with another chicken to decorate:

 

Blended Clouds - I decided to make my floating chicken part of a simple scene, so used the cloud-shaped die from the Happy Dies set to create a stencil and with my blending brush, created a simple pattern with some Pool Party ink so that it looked as if my chicken was floating up, up and away:

I so love these new blending brushes! My skyscape was so easy to create and the ink blends so beautifully and evenly with them.

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

I've had a busy day, with a few errands and online Parents' Evening earlier, hence me being later than I hoped with this post. Enjoy your evening and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Who Is A Foxy Lady?

by Joanne James28. February 2021 21:32

Today I'm here with an extra card that I made yesterday just for fun for a few challenges:

      

The challenge over at CASology closes tomorrow but I had been musing over an idea that I wanted to try for a few days, so paired it with the Color Throwdown colours which had a lovely rust colour included, perfect for a fox, and made the following card:

 

I used a whole host of retired product on this one, most notably my Foxy Friends stamp set and Fox Builder Punch, to create a Foxy face in lieu of the 'o' in my 'FOXY' word created using the Playful Alphabet Dies and paired it with the word 'Lady' from part of a sentiment in the retired 'Little LadyBug' stamp set to create my custom wording. I used the Color Throwdown colours in a quartet of stripes for my diecut letters and carried them across my card base to unify my layers. I added an additional stamped fox to the inside of my card:

 

Lastly, no foxy lady is complete without a sassy magenta flower in her fur, right?! So I added a punched flower for an added touch of femininity: 

 

I love this clean and simple card - it turned out just as I imagined. The big question is, who would you send a card like this to? I'd be really interested in your thoughts!

I'm also linking today's card up over at Addicted to CAS where the code word for the next fortnight is 'animal'.

Friends Are Like Seashells PP530

by Joanne James28. February 2021 09:00

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

    

So many options for today's sketch! The weather is slowly warming up as Spring approaches and whilst we may not be experiencing beach vacations for some time to come still, I decided to break out my Sand and Sea Suite and recreate that feeling with a card or two instead. So this is the first card I came up with:

 

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

Sand and Sea - So much to love about the Sand & Sea Suite! One of the most unique aspects is the way that the dies contain a whole joined sheet of shells and sea fronds that can be both stamped and embossed then either used as a single piece or the individual pieces can be cut away as I've done on my card. I stamped, embossed and diecut the panel in both pink, yellow and pearlescent cardstock and mixed the various elements on my card, with that large, pink circular shell as the centrepiece. I gave it a pearlescent finish by sponging with frost white shimmer paint before adding to my card - just check out the amazing texture and detail:

 

I added some pearls and braided trim to finish. This stamp really does have the most lovely sentiments too; one the front of my card I used the one that forms the basis of the name for this stamp set - here's a peek at the inside of my card with the second part of my greeting:

 

This card is headed to one of my oldest and most dear friends for her birthday - I know she will love it! I'm also linking it up with the team over at Time Out Challenges, who are also celebrating their 7th birthday this week and challenging us to make birthday cards too - way to go Time Out!

A Pearlescent Alternative - I had another piece of the Sand & Sea DSP left after making the above card, so I decided to flip it and make another card using the reverse pattern, with the same layout but changing out some of the elements and colours and going for a slightly softer look:

 

I actually had something of a happy accident with this pearlescent shell. I had intended to simply emboss it, but having embossed the pink shell on the card above first, I hadn't realised that some of the pink ink had rubbed off onto the embossing folder so when I removed my pearly shell from the embossing folder, it had traces of pink ink on the indents. I wiped some of it away but then decided to go with it and instead rubbed the raised areas with Blushing Bride ink to accentuate them. I decided I actually quite liked the detail so no harm done - what do you think?

 

So which of these cards do you prefer? This one: 

 

Or this one:

 

Do leave me a comment below - I'd love to hear your thoughts. I am using this suite for my next monthly online stamp class and am looking forward to creating more fabulous cards with it - get in touch if you'd like more information.

I will also be placing my last Sale-A-Bration order as the current Sale-A-Bration promotion ends today - last call for orders if you would like to earn one of the amazing free gifts that are available as part of the promotion. I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!
