DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #288-Tropical Chic

#288

Hi Stampers,

Welcome back to another DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. This week's challenge we are to use the new 2018-2020 In Colors. In keeping with my personal challenge of using a Stamp Set Bundle for a week, I made a set of 3 x 3 cards with a box using the Tropical Chic bundle.

This would be a cute set to give to a friend, coworkers....etcetera. I also remembered to stamp the envelopes.

I just love these bright and cheery in colors!!! I used the adidrondack chair from Colorful Seasons and the sun is from the Waterfront stamp set.

I just LOVE the leaf square die in this set.  I popped it up with mini dimensionals. This die cut is perfect size for the box too!!!

The Granny Apple Green ribbon matches perfectly!!! You don't have to seal the top, just tie ribbon around the box and then in a bow.

Painted Glass Screen Divider Card

Hi Stampers,

For today's card I decided to make a screen divider card using the Graceful Glass designer vellum. I just love this vellum---so delicate and intricate. I also used my blends for the coloring. I mounted the vellum onto a piece of Whisper White before adhering to the card. I could have cut out the Old Olive and adhered the vellum like the top portion but I chose not too. To make this card you need a piece of cardstock cut at 5-1/2 x 11. Along the 11 inch side, you need to score at 2-3/4, 5-1/2 and 8-1/4 inches. I used the Everyday Label Punch to punch out along the bottom of the card.

Painted Glass Sympathy Card

Hi Stampers,

Today's card is made with ......yup, you guessed it.....Painted Glass stamp set. I just had to use my new Tufted embossing folder on the gold sheets. They look like quilted puffs. I used gold embossing powder on the medallion stamp and the sentiment flag.

Painted Glass Triple Time Stamping

Hi Stampers,

Back with another card using the Painted Glass stamp set. This time I used the technique called Triple Time Stamping. The medallion stamp in this set is excellent to use for this technique. I also used a new color-Balmy Blue. This is such a pretty blue!!

Technique:

You cut all of your white bases and temporarily adhere them to stamp all 3 layers at once!!!

Whisper White cut at:

2 x 3-1/4                3 x 4-1/4                4 x 5-1/4

Mats are cut at:

2-1/4 x 3-1/2        3 -1/4 x 4-1/2        Base of card: 8-1/2 x 5-1/2

After stamping, take them apart and adhere the Whisper White pieces to their coordinating mat. I used dimensionals in between the layers.

I also have an embossed card for you using the same stamp set and colors. I used white embossing powder and used a sponge dauber dipped in Balmy Blue.

 I hope you are able to give this technique a try!!

Painted Glass Flap Fold Card

Hi Stampers,

Man!! Is it hot here in Michigan!!! It got up to 93 degrees today. It felt closer to 100. WAY TO HOT for me!!! Tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter at 95 degrees and heat index of 110!!! In fact, we have heat warnings for the next week or so. I am only a summer lover to about 80 degrees --- that is hot enough for me.

Today, my card is a sympathy card. These types of cards aren't a favorite of mine but I do like to have them on hand. I used my new Tufted Embossing Folder. I heat embossed the rose in clear embossing powder to give me some lines that stood up to coloring with the new blends. I also heat embossed the sentiment.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #287-Patriotic Painted Glass

DSC#287

 

Hi Stampers,

Welcome back for another DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. This week we have a Home Sweet Home challenge. Who lives in the United States and does not like red, white and blue? With the upcoming holiday this made the challenge very easy for me. Also, with keeping with my weekly challenge to myself to post 3-4 card ideas for a particular stamp set/bundle I used the Graceful Glass collection.

I wasn't too sure about the font used on the sentiment stamps but it looks beautiful with this style card.

DSCN0104

I die cut 3 of each color using the thinlit half circle and then patiently placed the colored die cut in each spot. The center one I adhered the "outline" to a piece of a scrap of Whisper White, placed the colored die cuts on it and then placed on dimensionals. The sentiment I placed the Whisper White back into the punch to make it smaller.

DSCN0105

This shows how the center "pops" up

 Make sure to check back on Friday for another card made with the Painted Glass stamp set.
