Sweet Baby Bear

Hi there

The card I'm sharing today is one that I designed especially for a recent private class. One of the lovely ladies wanted to learn how to get a good result with the Baby Bear stamp. It is a 3-step stamp and the images are numbered 1, 2 and 3 in the order in which Stampin' Up! suggests they should be stamped.  Personally, I find it easier to go 3, 2,1 so that you are putting down the darkest colour first. I think it makes it easier to line up the other 2 stamps - I use his bottom and the inside edges of his paws as reference points when lining up the second and third stamps. 

I have provided a patchwork background for this sweet bear image using the smallest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut 3 of the patterns from the Blushing Bride designer paper (from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack). I wanted to have 2 designs that were predominantly Blushing Bride and 2 that had more white, so I die cut 3 squares in Whisper White and then stamped over them with the heart stamp from the 'Bloomin' Love' stamp set in Blushing Bride ink to produce the floral squares. The squares are mounted onto a piece of Whisper White card stock and a strip with the 'congrats' greeting from the 'Vertical Greetings' stamp set was added to the right hand end, making the finished panel level. I added a strip of Crumb Cake and some White Organza Ribbon before mounting the panel onto a Crumb Cake mat and then onto the Blushing Bride card base.

I wanted a soft natural looking bear, so the ink colours I used were (in my 3, 2 1 order) - Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Sahara Sand. I then die cut the image (not an SU die) and popped it up over the Crumb Cake strip with foam pads. I have finished it off with some tiny flowers with pearl centres.

This close-sup shows the lovely stitched detailed in the squares and the soft browns in the bear. With all the detail on the front of the card, I have kept the inside simple.

I have used a Crumb Cake mat for the writing panel and a greeting in the same colour from the 'Made with Love' stamp set. A strip of spotted Blushing Bride designer paper at the bottom finishes it off.

CASE-ing the Catty - Sale-a-bration Last Hurrah

CTC_Blog_Banner_edited

Hi there

Sale-a-bration finishes next Friday 31 March, so this week the CTC Crew are CASE-ing a project of our choice from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue or the Second Release brochure. 

You may have come from looking at the inspiring project  on Kathryn's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can start your journey here and continue by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post.

  CTC121_SU_Sample

This week, I'm CASE-ing the gold and white striped tin. I've had this in mind for a few weeks, so this was the perfect opportunity to do it. These tins are fabulous for storing your finished cards, embossing folders, washi tape, pearls and rhinestone embellishments and many more besides. I'm going to use my tin to take swaps to the next Stampin' Up! OnStage event that is  just over 2 weeks away - woohoo!  Love these events and we will get to see the new 2017-18 Annual Catalogue for the first time, plus get our own copy to pore over.

 

Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration Tin for CASE-ing the Catty - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I've stayed with Night of Navy for the letters  as it coordinates so well with the gold and white. The letters were die cut with the 'Large Letters Framelits', which were a fortuitous recent purchase. I cut a strip of card stock and adhered Sizzix adhesive sheet to it and then cut the letters. The result is instant stickers that make for a quick and mess-free embellishment. I removed the backing paper from a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and also adhered the adhesive sheet before cutting the flourish from the 'Flourish Thinlits' dies. I attached the S, W, P and S first and then partly adhered the flourish and wove it through the A. 

CTC121_Tin_Closeup


Here is a close-up showing all the yummy sparkle. I did trim off one leaf behind the 'A' and re-positioned it. I didn't want anything too delicate for the embellishment, so I think this fits the bill. Now I have to get my act together so I will have something to put in it, lol.

I had time to squeeze in one more project, although there were more that I would like to have done. This one is from the Sale-a-bration Second Release brochure. It isn't a particularly good photo, but hopefully you can see it is a clean and simple card using the 'Reverse Words' stamp set.

Screen Shot 03-26-17 at 06.54 PM

I have swapped to a portrait style card, still using the 'cheers' stamp in Sweet Sugarplum to match the glimmer paper at the top and bottom. I wanted this to be a congratulations type card, that you could give to a colleague or friend. I don't have any stamp sets with wine glasses, so I improvised using the little bird cage from the 'Builder Birdcage' stamp set the other way up. I wanted the final result to still have a clean look, so I've left lots of white space and not too much extra embellishment.

AWH Easter Blog Hop

Hi there

AWH_Logo_2017Today I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some Easter projects, seeing as Easter is only about 3 weeks away!

Sale-a-bration is a great time to join or place a $90 order to get extra free items – ask me how! There are only 8 days left and there are 8 fabulous new items that you can choose for your FREE gift. Don't forget my special promotion for March - win $50 of Stampin' Up! product of your choice. You receive an entry into the draw for every $90 of product you purchase, plus you get an additional gift from me if you use this month's Hostess code shown in the left sidebar.

Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links. Now let’s get started!  

I have a cute Easter treat box (well, a basket actually) to share with you today. I've used the fabulous Window Box framelit dies to create the basket and decorated it with the super cute images from the 'Basket Bunch' stamp set. There is a co-ordinating framelit die for each image, plus some extra dies for the grass and some cute eggs.
 
Stampin' Up! Window Box Easter Treat Basket - Judy May, Just Judy Designs
 
To create the basket I cut one of the window box die as normal and then using the left over strip, I cut just the side panel, as it only needs the base and not a lid. Before putting the basket together I stamped it with the 'Hardwood' background stamp for a woodgrain look. On the panel with the base, you trim off the tabs on the straight panel that forms the sides as they aren't needed for the basket. You then put it together as normal.  
  
  AWH_Easter_Top_2
 
To give the basket extra strength I lined the base and sides with Daffodil Delight card stock as you can see in the pic above. Cut just the hexagon for lining the base and trim off the tabs and place into the bottom of the basket first. To create the side lining, cut a strip 4.7cm x 28cm. Score at 4.6, 9.3, 14, 18.7 and 23.4. Fold on the score lines and check it fits snugly and does not peek over the top. Place some Tombow liquid glue around the top inside edge and down both sides of the corner where the strip starts and finishes, as there is no overlap.
 
Stampin' Up! Window Box Easter Treat Basket - Judy May, Just Judy Designs
 
Here is a close-up showing the decoration around the base of the basket. I've cut 6 panels using the grass die. I found I got the best result by cutting the cardstock the exact size required, rather than trimming it as I adhered it.  Aren't the images sooooo cute! You can see the Melon Mambo egg on the side which is one of the extra dies and I've backed it with Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.

Finally, here is a view from the top showing the Lindt hen and eggs. The basket fits quite a lot of treats in it, as you can see.

CASE-ing the Catty - Urban Underground

CTC_Blog_Banner_edited

Hi there

It's Sunday again, so the CTC Crew have more creative inspiration for you from the Urban Underground Suite on Pages 46-49 of the Occasions Catalogue. 

You may have come from looking at the fab project  on Simone's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can start your journey here and continue by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post.

The Urban Underground Suite is a fabulous collection of stamps, dies, designer paper and embellishments that are perfect for masculine cards. I do find masculine cards a challenge, so I need all the help I can get, lol. I've chosen this card on the top right of page 46 to CASE. I've cropped it from the main photo, so you can see a bit more of the detail. It uses the 'Urban District' stamp set, which I don't have, so I have improvised.


    CTC120_SU_Sample_2

Did you notice the cross washi used at the top and bottom of the sample card (it is hard to see as it is silver on a vanilla background)?  I decided to use the Basic Gray striped washi from the Urban Underground Designer washi set around the edge of my mat so that it frames the art piece and provides a nice contrast to the black card base and the Very Vanilla centre panel. 

The hexagon die comes from the 'Build It Framelits' dies and I've cut 3 from the Urban Underground Speciality designer paper and positioned them on the Very Vanilla panel. This gave me the reference points for the paint splotch from the 'Gorgeous Grunge' stamp set which I stamped in Basic Gray ink.

Stampin' Up! Urban Underground Suite for CASE-ing the Catty - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I die cut a 4th hexagon in Basic Gray card stock and then embossed it with the Hexagons Dynamic embossing folder. As shown on page 46 of the Occasions Catalogue, you get a fabulous result if you spritz it lightly on the back before embossing. The happy birthday greeting is from the 'Designer Tin of Cards' stamp set (I masked the bottom half of the stamp) and is stamped in Delightful Dijon and cropped with the label die also from the Build It Framelits. This is not one of my favourite colours, but looks great as an accent colour on this masculine card. This hexagon is layered over the top of the other three and I added a couple of screw heads from the Urban Underground embellishments to the greeting label. They are probably a tiny bit large but they do add to the 'urban industrial' feel of the card. There is nothing 'sissy' about this card, lol! The nut and bolt have been die cut from silver foil and you will need to use your Precision Plate to get the best result.

For the inside, I have used two of the designs from the Urban Underground  washi set at the base, together with a nut and bolt die cut from silver foil and a paint splotch in the top right corner.

Reverse Words for Baby

Hi there

I've been away visiting family  for the last 10 days, so I'm looking forward to getting crafty again. I did take a stamp set and my water colour paper and pencils with me so I will have a few cards to show you shortly.

Can you believe we are more than half way through March already, so there is less than 2 weeks left to take advantage of the FREE Sale-a-bration products available with every $90 order. We are at that stage where Sale-a-bration products are available only while stocks last, so order now to make sure you don't miss out on the item you want.

Don't forget, as an extra bonus from me, you will get an entry into the draw for $50 of Stampin' Up! product of your choice and if you use this month's Hostess Code YURRHD6U, you will receive another small gift directly from me. That is 3 great reasons to place your order now.  My random number generator will be drawing the winner on 1 April 2017 and you will have an excellent chance of being the lucky person I contact.

Today I wanted to share a card I made with the Sale-a-bration Second Release stamp set, 'Reverse Words'. This is a set of 2 large stamps with the words 'hooray' and 'cheers' that show through the stamped background. The 'hooray' is perfect for greetings on birthday cards, but I wanted to extend it a bit further, so I have made a sweet baby card.

Stampin' Up! Reverse Words (Sale-a-bration) with Moon Baby - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I have stamped the 'hooray' in Crumb Cake ink towards to bottom of the art piece and then added the cute baby from the 'Moon Baby' stamp set. I stamped the image with Basic Gray Archival ink onto Shimmery white card stock before colouring with my Aqua painter and ink pads and then fussy cutting. The banner from 'Endless Thanks' has been stamped with the 'it's a girl'  greeting from the Sale-a-bration stamp set 'Any Occasion', fussy cut and popped up at the base.  I used a Copic marker to give the banner the pale pink background. The art piece has been matted on the beautiful Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper from the Glimmer Assortment pack, another of the Second Release Sale-a-bration items. The base card is Crumb Cake and I have finished it with a little banner and double bow in white Baker's twine and a little bling.

Hooray_Baby_Inside

The writing panel has a mat of Sweet Sugarplum and at the base is a strip of Crumb Cake washi topped with a narrow strip of Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper. The greeting is from the 'Made with Love' stamp set with the stars from the 'Perpetual Calendar' stamp set stamped off across it in Sweet Sugarplum ink.

Window Shopping Gift Box

Hi there

Today I'm sharing this gift box I made with the Window Box Thinlits dies. I have cut the base from thick Whisper White card stock and used Sweet Sugarplum accents. This is a really good sized box, perfect for treats, a small gift, jewellery etc. 

  Stampin' Up! Window Box Thinlits & Succulent Framelits - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

The greeting is from the 'Lift Me Up' stamp set which I have cut into a flag and layered on top of the folded Sweet Sugarplum Ruched ribbon and the silver metallic ribbon from the Sale-a-bration bundle. 

Stampin' Up! Window Box Thinlits & Succulent Framelits - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

For the embellishment on the top, I cut a circle of Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper from the Sale-a-bration Glimmer Assortment pack and topped it with a lace doily. The flower was made from the Succulent Framelits dies layered up and topped with a large pearl (retired).  

Stampin' Up! Window Box Thinlits & Succulent Framelits - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I have used one of the small dies that come with the set to cut the cute hearts design in alternate panels on the base with the sweet daisies in the other panels. The daisies are made with 2 of the smallest Succulent flowers layered with petals alternated and topped with a circle of glimmer. 

Stampin' Up! Window Box Thinlits & Succulent Framelits - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I have lined the base, sides and lid of the box with Sweet Sugarplum card stock which makes it very sturdy. This is such a versatile box and I'm looking forward to showing you some different variations and embellishment options in future posts.

CASE-ing the Catty - Cool Treats

CTC_Blog_Banner_edited

Hi there

This week the CTC Crew are looking at the Cool Treats section of the Occasions Catalogue on pages 32-45. There are lots of great projects and products in this section, but I only had time to make one this week.

You may have come from looking at the lovely project  on Rebecca's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can start your journey here and continue by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post.

This week I have chosen to CASE the tag on the gift bag on the left side of the photo, turning it into a card instead.

CTC118_SU_Sample
   

This is the first time I've inked up the 'Cool Treats' stamp set and I loved it. It has a lot of mix and match elements and the best part is that there are framelits to cut them all out. I really like that framelits cut inside the stamped image so there is no border on the finished die cut.  I used the sprinkles design from the 'Tasty Treats' designer paper for the background and have taken the colours from the paper for easy coordination. The ice creams have been stamped off for the base colour and then the full strength ink used on the highlights.

Stampin' Up! Cool Treats & Tasty Treats DSP

I have added some of the Sprinkles Embellishments to the watermelon ice cream cone for a fun touch, as you can see in this closeup. I have picked out the white pearls and the square sequins. Isn't the detail in the cones great - these are just 2 of the options available to choose from.

CTC118_Cool_Treats_Close2

I also stamped the 'birthday' part of the greeting again, fussy cut it and layered it over the stamped image for a nice 3D effect. The second part of the greeting is white embossed and popped up.

CTC118_Cool_Treats_Closeup

For the inside, I have used two of the designs from the Tasty Treats washi set at the base and an icecream cone with chocolate topping and sprinkles in the corner.

Soft & Pretty with So Detailed Thinlits

Hi there

Today I'm sharing a soft and pretty wedding card featuring the 'So Detailed' Thinlits dies. I've paired it with some other products from the 'Falling in Love' suite in the Occasions Catalogue including the 'Falling in Love' designer series paper and the Very Vanilla Satin ribbon. Using all these beautifully coordinated products results in a quick make.

I have used the Blushing Bride Glimmer paper for the die cut which makes for a beautiful sparkly focus on the card.  Here are 3 ways you can use to add adhesive to a fine die cut:

  1. Put tiny dots of Tombow liquid glue all over the reverse side of the die cut and leave it for a few minutes to go tacky. When the colour of the glue changes from white to a creamy colour then you can adhere it to your art piece. This will ensure that the glue doesn't squish out and make a mess. This can be a bit time consuming and some people find it tricky to manage the flow of liquid glue.
     
  2. Squeeze out a blob of Tombow liquid glue onto a corner your Silicone Mat and take up some of the glue using a quarter piece of a yellow stamping sponge. Place your die cut on the silicone mat reverse side up and dab all over with the sponge.  You need to hold the die cut firmly so it doesn't move, otherwise the glue will transfer to the front of the die cut. This is a very quick and easy way to  get a fine layer of glue all over the die cut. Store the sponge in a snap lock bag to use again another time.
     
  3. Use your fingernail on the corner of the piece glimmer paper you will use  for your die cut, to separate the layers. Carefully remove the backing paper from the entire piece. Cut a piece of double sided adhesive paper (such as Sizzix Adhesive Sheets) the same size as your glimmer paper. Remove the backing paper of the adhesive sheet and adhere to the reverse side of the glimmer paper. Burnish well with your bone folder to ensure good adhesion.  Run your glimmer paper and So Detailed Thinlits die through the Big shot as normal. Carefully peel off the backing paper and attach the die cut to your art piece. 

I have used all 3 methods successfully. For the quickest, mess-free result I would recommend option 3 using the double sided adhesive sheets. I have had mine since they were available from Stampin' Up! (now retired) but you can find them at craft stores. I do not recommend you adding the adhesive paper to reverse of the glimmer paper without removing the backing. The glimmer paper is already quite thick and adding the adhesive paper makes it very difficult to cut a fine die such as the So Detailed Thinlits successfully, even running through the Big Shot multiple times. Now for the card!

Stampin' Up! So Detailed Thinlits & Falling in Love DSP - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I  attached the die cut to to the Very Vanilla panel first, then added a strip of the 'Falling in Love' DSP  to left edge. A strip of Vellum card stock forms the background to my stamped greeting positioned on the right hand side. The Very Vanilla Satin ribbon goes over the top, covering the edge of the DSP.  I added the bow with a glue dot, after adhering the vanilla panel to the Blushing Bride base card. A silver heart from the Metallic Enamel Shapes was coloured with a Copic marker to trim the greeting panel. I could have used a Blushing Bride heart, but I like the soft luminous look the coloured silver gives.

Here is a close-up of the gorgeous Blushing Bride Glimmer paper and the pretty pink heart.

Detailed-Thinlits_Wedding_I

For the inside I have a mat of Soft Sky which is one of coordinating colours in the 'Falling in Love" DSP. It is trimmed with some Soft Sky washi from the retired 'All is Calm' set and a strip of Blushing Glimmer. The sentiment from the 'Falling for You' stamp set is stamped in Soft Suede with the Dandelion flower over stamped in Blushing Bride. I also stamped the Dandelion flower onto the Very Vanilla envelope for a coordinated finish.
