04.16.20…..Happy Thursday, everyone! Hope everyone’s had a chance to squeeze in at least a bit of stamping and papercrafting this week! If you’re already hopping along with us today, you probably just came from Stesha’s blog. Aren’t her projects gorgeous!?! If you’ve just started your hop, the Artisan Design Team is featuring products from the Country Club Suite and the Mountain Air Bundle…which are available in the January -June 2020 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog. The team has some absolutely amazing projects to inspire you today, and you will not want to miss a single one!
For my first card, I started with a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, and embossed it with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder. After I layered a slightly large pieces of Whisper Cardstock underneath, I used a few Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to a Soft Sea Foam Cardstock base.
To create the paper to use for the trees (created with one of the dies from Mountain Air Bundle), I started with a half sheet of Whisper White Thick Cardstock. I then used my Stampin’ Sponges (along with Soft Sea Foam and Petal Pink) to sponge a random pattern across the paper. To add some speckling, I used my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker, and flicked the thick end of the marker against the marker cap. (I also used this paper to create the golf tees in my second card. See below.)
The sentiment (from the Clubhouse Bundle) was heat-embossed on Whisper White Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. After I added a subtle wash of Petal Pink with my Aqua Painter, I then cut it out the sentiment with one of the dies from the Clubhouse Bundle, and popped it up with a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. For some extra texture and dimension, I added two of the borders from the Country Club Elements. (Before I adhered them, I turned them over to the “non-patterned” side.) To add just a bit of bling, I sprinkled on a few Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.
Next up is my golf-themed card…
For this card, I started with a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, and added some subtle color across the middle of the paper, using a Stamping Sponge along with my Crumb Cake Classic Stampin’ Pad. I embossed it with the Absolutely Argyle 3D Embossing Folder. layered a slightly larger pieces of Whisper Cardstock underneath, and used a few Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to a Soft Sea Foam Cardstock base. Using the paper that I created for my first card (see above), I cut out three golf tees, using one of the dies from the Clubhouse Bundle. I also cut out three Whisper White golf balls, using another die from the Clubhouse Bundle, and popped them up with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The sentiment (from the Clubhouse Bundle) was heat-embossed on Whisper White Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. After I added a subtle wash of Soft Sea Foam with my Aqua Painter, I then cut it out the sentiment with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies, and popped it up with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also added one of the borders from the Country Club Elements. For some extra texture, I added some Linen Thread, Whisper White Baker’s Twine, and a few strands of Grapefruit Grove Nature’s Twine. To add just a bit of bling, I sprinkled on a few Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.
