Sparkle and Shine Punch Art Umbrella

by Joanne James28. March 2016 12:15

I've been having fun playing along with the CASology challenges for the last couple of weeks, so today I have a couple of clean and simple cards for this week's challenge where the theme is weather:

   JAI #304...Inspiration

My first card was a fair weather sunshine card which you can see here. My second card is altogether at the other end of the weather spectrum and was born out my attempts to make a punch art umbrella for this week's challenge over at Just Add Ink where they have the most gorgeous inspiration photo:

Whilst I abandoned the card I had planned in my head for something infinitely more 'clean and simple', I am really pleased with my little punch art umbrella. Read on to find out how I did it:

Punch Art Umbrella - I actually used a combination of two circle punches, the 1 3'4" circle punch which I used to create a semi circle, then I took my 3/4" circle punch and punched it three times along the straight edge to create my umbrella shape. As if that wasn't neat enough, I then found the perfect umbrella handle - the candy cane framelit from the Snow Friends Framelits Dies! The dimensions are just right to complete my punch art creation. These framelits are still available as a carry-over item from the Winter seasonal catalogue if you would like to purchase them, along with the co-ordinating 'Snow Place' stamp set.

Pitter-Patter Raindrops - My raindrop background is from the 'Sparkle and Shine' stamp set. This set has some lovely patterns that work for small backgrounds or repeated patterns and the raindrops were just perfect for today's card. My sentiment is also from this set.

Neutrals That Pop - I deliberately keep my colour palette neutral with just one colour, Real Red, to maintain the CAS feel of my design. I also popped my umbrella canopy up on a couple of dimensionals to help it stand out. You can save my colour palette here:

 

Here's the visual summary of the key supplies used to make this card and my punch art umbrella tip for you to save for future reference:

 

This is the weather forecast here in the UK for the rest of this week, but I will be making the most of any fine weather and getting out and about. We also have a stash of craft kits to keep us busy when we aren't so lucky - and all of those chocolate eggs from yesterday to eat too! I have a date with my ironing basket this afternoon and then we are having an extended James family get-together this evening, which is always fun.

I will be back with another card tomorrow for the challenge over at Just Add Ink that this time focuses on the colours of those lovely umbrellas; until then, happy stampin'!

Chip And Mrs Potts Cups and Kettle Framelits Card

by Joanne James28. January 2016 08:05

Today it's time for a new challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary and this week we have a great sketch for you:

 

Now as my regular readers know I love a good sketch but it wasn't actually the sketch that inspired my card today; I was working on a couple of projects at the same time and had my Cups and Kettle Framelits Dies still out on my desk from my Paper Players card (if you missed it you can see that card here) and the minute I set eyes on that little cup (or it might even be a milk jug, I'm not sure) I just knew it would be perfect to make Chip, the little cup from Disney's movie 'The Beauty and The Beast' - you know the little guy I mean?

Image result for mrs potts and chip (Copyright Disney)

Paired with a customised teapot for Mrs Potts, Chip's Mum, this sketch gave me the perfect layout to showcase my fun characters - here's my finished card:

Now I know I'm biased since I made the card, but aren't that pair just the cutest?! So how did I make them? Here are the key component parts you need:

  • Basic teapot and cup cut from Shimmery White cardstock (I reversed my cup for the above card as I wanted the characters to be looking at each other)
  • Cupbase and teapot base made from the base of the other cup framelit cut from Wisteria Wonder
  • Cut an extra teapot and cup in Daffodil Delight and trim off the handles and some strips to edge the bases
  • Cut three of the looped framelit pieces, one each in Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise and Pink Pirouette. Detach and use one whole yellow loop to line the cup. Snip the blue and pink ones in half across the middle and glue them in alternating colours to the Wisteria Wonder base.
  • Cut a teapot lid out of Wisteria Wonder and add a Pink Pirouette candy dot to the lid top. 
  • Cut two pieces of the wave shapes, one each from Daffodil Delight and Wisteria Wonder. Paper-piece them together and adhere to the teapot edge to create the frill.
  • Punch some eyes using the circle from the owl builder punch, adding eyelids and eye lashes to Mrs Potts and cut the eyebrows and mouths freehand with paper snips. 
  • Lastly, don't forget to snip to add Chip's chip!

I stamped a faint heart on the background, added a strip of 'Have a Cuppa' designer series paper and a heart boarder, along with my sentiment, to complete my card. Punch art-type cards like this are sometimes time-consuming to create, but so worth it I think for a special card!

Do visit the other Design Team members to see how they interpreted this week's sketch; there's lots of inspiration over on their blogs too!

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

Punch Art Guitar Cards

by Joanne James10. October 2015 09:00

I have a couple of fun punch art cards to share with you today (to make up for no post yesterday)! I was all ready to link up with the ladies at SUO Challenges but it would appear that our clocks are not coinciding this week - never mind! Check them out if you're a punch art fan as that's their theme this week. Both of these were made for my lovely husband, who celebrated his birthday this week. You will notice there is something of a common theme to my cards - here's the first one:

 

My husband has recently taken up learning to play the guitar; I think living in a household with three pianists and a singer, he was feeling somewhat left out! So I decided for my card to go with a simple black and white combo, using my circle framelits for the holes and my word window punch and decorative label punches for the fretboard and strings. The strings themselves are made using the new silver corded trim - perfect for my six-string - and I added an actual re guitar pick 'borrowed' from my husband's collection to add a pop of red to my card.

My second card was made from my children and includes both a punched star and a rather clever guitar made with ... the owl punch! Take a look:

I used some retired music print paper for my background and the same 'Rock Star' greeting from the 'Be The Star' stamp set, this time stamped in Pacific Point on Very Vanilla then punched out with my star punch. I also added the word 'DAD' cut with my little Letter Thinlits for further personalisation. A silver glimmer star then formed the background to highlight my punch art guitar: an owl punch body (minus the feet!) in Pacific Point, a small punched circle and a piece of Smoky Slate wound in thin silver thread for the strings with a couple of the owl hearts attached to the end for the keys that tighten the strings. Not a bad replica of the blue electric guitar he is practising on - thank heavens for headphones that plug in to his amplifier, so we are not all having to witness his Eric Clapton impressions until he is more polished!!

Back later with some exciting news for you, so watch this space; meanwhile, happy stampin'!

You know that feeling - you want it all, but your budget just doesn't stretch that far? Well shares are the perfect answer! You get a little bit of everything, without having to purchase a full pack. A share can also act as a 'try before you buy' - you get to see papers, ribbons, buttons and accessories 'up close and personal' before deciding which ones you like the most and would like to purchase as a full pack.

Shares work really easily: you decide which shares and how many you would like to take part in. You place your order by clicking on the button below, which takes you to my Paypal page to enable payment. Once the closing date for the first round of shares is reached, I collate the orders, place an order with Stampin' Up! for the product, then once I receive it, I package the papers and embellishments and send them out to you. Simple!

I have been running paper, ribbon and accessory shares with my local customers for a while and starting with the new seasonal Autumn-Winter Holiday catalogue I am going to be offering them to all my online customers too.

Bold Butterfly Framelit Shaped Edge Card and Rainbow Hearts Card Celebrating Gay Pride

by Joanne James29. June 2015 09:49

Happy Monday everyone! Well, we didn't manage to barbeque yesterday as it was the worst weather day of the week here in the UK, but no matter - this week is supposed to be a scorcher, despite the fact that it's the start of Wimbledon Tennis Fortnight (a sure recipe for rain!) so I'm sure there will be lots of opportunity. My week is shaping up to be a busy one - with only three weeks until the end of the school term, there is something on pretty much every other day between now and the end of term so forgive me if my blogging becomes brief! Anyway, a good start to the week as I've two cards to share today! This first is my card for this week's challenge over at Colour Q:

Don't you just love those flip flops?! The colours along with the butterflies prompted me to create a fun 'cutting edge' card that I am also linking up with the current challenge over at SUO Challenges where they are asking us to create a card that features a cut edge that is something other than a straight line. This is what I came up with:

I used Soft Sky for my card base, then diecut four butterflies in Night of Navy using the smallest butterfly in the new Bold Butterfly framelits and adhered them to the edge of my card, carefully cutting around them by hand to remove the edge of the card base and expose the back panel. I then cut another two butterflies each in Daffodil Delight and Marina Mist and paper-pieced the small pieces into the navy butterflies. I stamped the sentiment from Watercolour Wonder onto the front of my card in Night of Navy and stamped the spotty strip repeatedly along the back inside edge of the card in Soft Sky for some added detail behind the butterflies, although you can't see this in the above photo as it's not flat and only visible when closed (I need to take another picture which I will add to this post later - these type of cards are so tricky to photograph!). This card looks so pretty in real life - the fussy cut edge really lifts this card and makes it something special.

My second card today is using this week's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches where the lovely Jen Mitchell has a great sketch that would work so well for so many layouts:

I flipped the sketch through 180 degrees (it's allowed!) to create a rather topical card that was inspired by a cupcake of all things that appeared in my Facebook feed over the weekend, commemorating the decision by the US Supreme Court over the weekend to legalise same sex marriage across all US states:

 

I used a rainbow of strips of cardstock, punching each with my Hearts Border punch before adhering to my base of extra-thick Whisper White cardstock (love this for card bases!) I then took the punched out hearts and adhered these individually in a row beneath the negative punched space on the strip above. My focal point is a couple of 2" circles, the first in Whisper White and stamped with one of the sentiments in the 'Groovy Love' stamp set, inked up with Pacific Point and Real Red Stampin' Write markers. The second circle was punched from Real Red cardstock, with a heart punched out of the centre using the Sweetheart punch so that the sentiment could show through the negative space and popped up over the first on Dimensionals for added depth. Very 'gay pride' with the hearts and rainbows, don't you agree? I am also entering this card into a demonstrator-only challenge that Stampin' Up! are currently running with the tagline #punchitup where we have to use a combination of two of four specific punches and as you can see, I went with hearts!

That's my creative post for today; I will be back tomorrow with another project and may be back in the meantime with other news, depending on how far I get through today's 'to do' list so do pop back later! Until then, happy stampin'!

Up, Up and Away New Home Card

by Joanne James18. May 2015 11:03

I am starting this week with a quick post to share a card that I made with my ladies at one of my recent Stamp-A-Stack classes which was all about punch art and fits perfectly not only for the colours but also the inspiration photo over at The Color Throwdown this week:

I had been wanting to make an 'Up!' style card for a while and had seen lots of versions on Pinterest - here's my take with the card I made with my ladies:

Quite simple, but it needed to be as everyone was making a few each - Stamp-A-Stack is all about creating lots of cards in a - relatively! - short time.

The base is a piece of Soft Sky, onto which I adhered a few Whisper White clouds and stamped a few straight lines using the balloon string from the 'Celebrate Today' stamp set. We then stamped the house from the now retired Sale-A-Bration set in Memento Black onto Crumb Cake and punched it out with the retiring 'What's Up?' arrow punch and popped it on a dimensional at the base of the strings. The cluster of balloons is a carefully layered group of balloons made with the small oval punch and a foot from the Owl Builder punch. The sentiment is taken from the also retired winter seasonal set 'Holiday Home'. These bright primary colours are perfect for this card and so remind me of the scene where the house takes off in the Disney movie 'Up!'; I'm a big Disney fan and this movie holds special memories as it was the movie I watched with my daughter the first time we visited the cinema.

That's not quite all from me today - I have a second post which is my-fill in post from Saturday when I was at the Stampin' Up! UK Regional training event in Telford, so scroll back to read that one if you want to hear about the fun I had! 

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

Hooray For Today What's My Type Goldfish Card

by Joanne James7. May 2015 08:05

It's Thursday and time for a new challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary and this week we have a fun colour challenge for you:

I spent a little while bemusing how I was going to use these colours together this week, but once I'd decided my card came together in record time. I decided to go with some super simple punch art this week - take a look:

I love the big, bold shapes in the 'What's Your Type' stamp set; not only are they great for creating patterns but they can also be used to create fun objects too. For today's card, I stamped the wavy lines from 'Work of Art' in Bermuda Bay - stamped three times, bottom to top without re-inking to give my water an ombre effect - and stamped my sentiment from the 'Geometrical' stamp set in Versamark and heat embossed it in gold. I then used my 2" Circle punch to cut two circles out of Tangelo Twist cardstock. One of them I cut in half and overlapped by a quarter to create the fish body. The second one I cut in half then stamped the semi-circle lined stamp from 'What's Your Type' stamp set in Versamark and heat embossed this in gold too and glued this to the body piece. I added a single gold sequin to my fish for his eye, then adhered this to my card with a dimensional for some lift. A few Bermuda bay sequins for air bubbles finished off my card. I think this would be a fun birthday card for a toddler - I know my children would have loved it in years gone by!

Do check out what the other CCMC designers have in store for you today - there's a great variety of inspiration to get you going with this colour palette - and we look forward to seeing your entries in the gallery this week!

I'll be back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

Lucky Four Leaf Clover Card

by Joanne James27. March 2015 14:34

A quick card from me to share another four leaf clover card, this time for the 'green' challenge over at Addicted to CAS:

Here's my card:

 

I actually made this card a couple of weeks ago and realised as I was sifting through my photos today that I had forgotten to blog and upload it, so here it is! A simple white background, with a couple of rows of three-leaf clovers, made by punching out some shapes out of Garden Green cardstock using the flower punch in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and cutting away one of the four petals. For my lucky four leaf clover, I stamped my flower image in green on green and punched it out, leaving all four petals intact and adding a stem and a rhinestone for added sparkle. My 'lucky' is stamped in Garden Green and is one of those ever-useful stamps in the Project Life 'Remember This' stamp set - yes, Project Life is for all your crafting, not just for memory-keeping!

That's all from me today; I've been busy catching up on paperwork and emails all day and I'm itching to get some 'real' crafting done! Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

Bird Builder Spring Wreath Card

by Joanne James4. March 2015 20:05

Finally time for today's creative post! I was fortunate enough to be selected as the 'Top Pick' over at the As You See It Challenge last week - thank you ladies! - for this card here. Today I'm entering a card for this week's challenge which is another sketch-based one - you know how I love a good sketch:

I was keen to interpret the ring in the sketch as a wreath in some way and since I had some leftover burlap on my desk from another project that I am currently working on, I knew which direction I wanted to go. My thoughts are definitely on Spring this week - here is my interpretation of the sketch: 

I started with a base of Lost Lagoon then added a piece of All Abloom DSP down the side. I overlapped this with a piece of So Saffron and added a Pistachio Pudding panel across the horizontal, that I pierced around the edge to add interest. To create my spring wreath, I used a few strands of burlap that I stripped from a length and tied it together at three points around the edge to hold everything together. To decorate, I added a few springs of leaves in Mossy Meadow punched from my bird punch, then punched my bird itself in Lost Lagoon. I added an eye with a Basic Grey marker and I punched his wing out of a snippet of All Abloom paper in a different stack design. I added a sentiment banner that I stamped using the Crazy About You' stamp set and to finish a trio of flowers, one in So Saffron with a pearl centre, and two that I stamped in So Saffron on Whisper White with the flower stamp from the 'Something to Say' stamp set and punched out with the co-ordinating Itty Bitty Accents punch.

I love the look and feel of this card - it's so fresh and says that Spring is on the way. I haven't used my bird punch in ages but this little fella looks quite at home sat on his burlap wreath. This would also make a nice Easter or Birthday card, with a change of sentiment.

Back tomorrow with another double-post day and some exciting news too! Until then, happy stampin'!

Butterfly Thinlits Bokeh Card

by Joanne James28. February 2015 22:26

Good evening blog readers! A busy couple of days so a later blog post today. Just time to share with you another card using the Butterfly Thinlits, this time including the largest of the trio: 

This is a larger than usual card at 6" x 6", as I wanted to allow enough cardstock to frame this rather large butterfly and set if off to true effect. The base of my card is Crumb Cake cardstock, onto which I added a raised mat panel consisting of a piece of the current Sale-A-Bration 'Best Year Ever' Designer Series Paper onto a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock. I love this bokeh-inspired patterned paper - it saves the time of creating your own and makes for a lovely background effect. |Even better still, it can be yours free with an order of £45! I then added a piece of Strawberry Slush cardstock, and wrapped some linen thread around the panel before adhering to my card. I then added my layered butterfly - the largest butterfly cut from Crumb Cake and the smallest butterfly cut from Coastal Cabana - and finished with a bow of Strawberry Slush thick baker's twine. A no-stamping card, that really shows these delicate butterflies off to great effect.

I'm linking today's card with the sketch challenge over at Fab Friday (I turned the sketch through 90 degrees and used my linen thread in place of the flagged banner in the sketch).

Back tomorrow with my card for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players and news of some new Sale-A-Bration goodies that you can earn during the month of March. Until then, happy stampin'!
