Graphic 45 Big Score card by designer Lori Williams


Hello everyone, Lori here with you today sharing one of my latest creations.  I’m generally not the world’s largest fan of masculine cards.  I find them a challenge to do, but this one came together so well it’s honestly one of my current favorites. 

Big Score card by Lori Williams

I started off stamping three of the footballs on card stock and then fussy cutting them.  Next I stamped the man and little boy with brown momento ink and colored them in with copic markers and then fussy cut.  The papers are from the Graphic 45 Good Ol’ Sport collection so I cut one of the pictures out and layered it on some of the patterned paper, layering with foam tape.  The footballs were added to the edge with foam tape and the man and little boy were layered on top of the footballs.  The sentiment (which is so awesome) was inked around the edges with distress ink and glue down to the bottom right as shown.  I then used the #1 Fan stamp , but half in half.  The Fan portion was inked with brown ink and stamped on the chipboard tag.  Then the #1 was stamped on card stock with red ink with clear embossing powder over the top and heat set.  I then layered it on a chipboard circle and sanded to make it round.  I then ink distressed the edge and foam taped it between the tab and the sentiment to finish off the card.  


Do you know someone that would love to have a card like this for Father’s Day or just because.  Check out the supply list below to see everything you need to create a similar card.

KI Memories Playlist card by designer Gretchen McElveen


Good morning! I’ve got a playful card to share with you today. I needed a card that wasn’t too girly (anybody else have a friend who despises pink??!) and the “Playlist” line from KI Memories was perfect for this! I love the bright colors in this line! Yes, there is some pink in it but there are lots of other fun colors also.

I used the “Playlist” patterned paper as the background for the card and then embellished the card with lots of die cuts and glitter dots. Thanks for looking!

See The World card by designer Deborah Nolan

Hi, Deborah the Newbie welcoming you back to the Hampton Art blog! Today’s card is for anybody who falls in love with patterned paper but isn’t sure what to do with the extra “add-on” goodies. (You know, that sheet with all the punch out objects and such?) Or how about those fabulous sheets of journaling blocks? They’re not just for scrapbooking anymore!
I like these items because you can put together a nice card that says you care but which can be assembled in less than no time. (Let’s face it – we all care, but sometimes our schedules can only accommodate a five-minute masterpiece.)
Here’s a card for travelers - graduates, missionaries, folks who are relocating to a distant place for school or a job. I like the idea of surprising somebody with travel tickets in this “modest” card - bet they wouldn’t see that one coming!
This card can also work with gift certificates to a bookstore for the armchair traveller (just stamp “Read a Book!” with alphabet stamps on the inside of the card).

Note of Thanks card by designer Melinda Spinks

Hello and welcome to the Hampton Art blog... it's Melinda with you today and I have a fun little card to share using the Hampton Art / Spellbinders 'Shapeabilities'.


STEP BY STEP

1. I cut my top piece of cardstock to measure 3.25" x 5.25" and then randomly cut the little flower shapes using the flower die and my Big Shot.

2. I then cut four 1.5" squares in each of the Jillibean Soup Staple II colors (excluding pink) and attached to the back of each flower. For the pink flower I used a full sheet of pink cardstock measuring 3.5" and attached to the back of the top piece using foam pop dots to give dimension to the flowers.


3. I then continued to cut sheets of cardstock for the remaining four colors making each sheet 3mm wider than the previous sheet and layered them using double sided tape.

4. I cut and folded the card which measured 4.25" x 5.5" and then adhered to the back of the layered piece, again using double sided tape.


5. Now for the fun part... the decorating. I added a color co-ordinated epoxy dot to each flower and added a banner with my sentiment stamped across the front.

New Jillibean Soup Cool As A Cucumber Soup card by designer Patty Folchert


So excited to share the first project I made with the brand new Jillibean Soup “Cool as a Cucumber” collection and two new Hampton Art/Jillibean Soup Stamp & Stencil sets!

Congarts card by Patty Folchert
It is the time of year when we need lots of Graduation cards, so that was the idea behind this card. The new kraft mini envelopes made the perfect gift card or cash holder.  The base was cut from Gray Salt paper and covered with a border strip of Chic Kale and a base mat of Trendy Tomatoes. Then I grabbed the White Simple Circles placemat and trimmed out three circles to frame three fussy cut light bulbs from the new Swell Soy paper. 

Next I pulled out the fun Butterfly Dictionary Stamp & Stencil set and stamped the text in charcoal ink onto the back side of the Birthday Bisque Bite Size bits paper.  I used it as a backer behind the placemat circles and then added the fussy cut light bulbs with foam dots. 


Finally I trimmed out a piece of the stamped text paper for my sentiment arrow and stamped in charcoal ink the “congrats” sentiment from the new Stamp and Stencil/Sentiments set. I mounted it onto a piece of the Swell Soy paper and adhered it with double foam dots. Last I added three new Enamel Stars in yellow for a touch of bling.

That was it, a fun versatile Congratulations card with a color palette that would work for a boy or a girl.

Bright Wishes,
Patty

Graphic 45 Botanical Celebrate card by designer Lori Williams


Hello all, it’s Lori here with you today sharing a card I created that’s a bit of a twist.  A twist?  Yep, I used the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper and stamp set, yet it’s a tone on tone.  The Botanical Tea Collection is one that is full of pinks, blues and greens so you can see why I say this card is a twist. 
Celebrate card by Lori Williams

I like to add lots of layers and dimensions to my card with foam tape.  I may have stacks of foam tape four times high on some of my cards.  I also ink many of my edges on card which gives another layer.  This card was fairly easy.  It’s a 5” x 7” card.  The patterned paper has all been layered onto cream card stock and all the edges inked.  I stamped the border stamp three times and then colored in with a yellow watercolor pencil for a little extra highlight.  Across the edge of the border is a decorative punch ink and glued to the back of the border stamp.  The lemon stamp was stamped using momento brown ink and then I colored in the lemon with the yellow watercolor pencil.  I finished it all off with four little metal brads in the corners of the stamped image and set with more foam tape.  

I really love the vintage look of the finished card.  If you would like to give one of this a whirl for yourself, please see the supply list below.

KI Memories and Jillibean Soup layout by designer Gretchen McElveen


Hi there! I’ve got a fun birthday layout to share today using the “Birthday Bisque” line from Jillibean Soup and the “Playlist” line from KI Memories. 
Almost 30 layout by Gretchen McElveen

I cut up the sheet of journaling cards in the “Birthday Bisque” patterned paper and added some die cuts & stickers  from the same line to create the border on the left side of the layout. To create the “almost” in the title I adhered the vellum alphabet stickers from the “Playlist” line to white cardstock first and then cut them out with a white border around the edges. I like the look of the white border, but also the white cardstock helps to make the alphas stand out against the background paper. 


Thanks for looking!

Lovely layered card by designer Deborah Nolan

Hey, there - Deborah here! Glad you could join me again on the Hampton Art blog.
Today I decided to go in a different direction (for me) because I wanted to use the Graphic 45 Parfumerie stamp set that Hampton Art distributes, and it’s very vintage looking.  I love this set because it’s so versatile with three different little stamps to put in the center of your perfume bottle.

Although I love the shabby chic/distressed style, I rarely employ it when making cards. So, in the immortal words of Monty Python….

Hero card by designer Patty Folchert



Our Fathers are the spotlight of the month of June and this is a fun Father’s Day or Veteran appreciation card. It came together with the Hampton Art/Jillibean Soup Irish Farmhouse Soup Large stamp set and some papers from the same collection.

Hero card by Patty Folchert

I thought it would be fun to use the ruler stamp to make stripes for a flag, masking the star area and then stamping the Vintage stamp in the star area. Using red and navy ink I stamped my flag onto white cardstock. Using some natural twine I wrapped the flag twice then tied a bow. Then I trimmed the flag and added a mat from Barley paper and adhered it onto the Sea Salt paper. All that was left was the “HERO” sentiment which I added denim alphabeans and three navy blue pearls as shown. 

Thankful for Heroes,
Patty

Action Packed layout by designer Gretchen McElveen


Hi there! I’ve got a fun layout to share with you today using the “Playlist” line from KI Memories. 
Girls in Blue layout by Gretchen McElveen

First, though, let me go ahead and admit to being very lazy when it comes to printing out my pictures these days. And sometimes I just don’t feel like cropping and sizing my pictures either. L.A.Z.Y! When I get lazy like this what I end up doing is taking several pictures from an event and creating a collage with them. Then I have 1 large 8x10 collage of pictures to work with. Easy! 

So to make this layout, I framed the collage with strips of the black & white striped paper from the “Playlist” collection. I added some different patterned papers around the edges of the page and then added the title right onto the collage. To make the title I adhered the vellum alphabet stickers from the “Playlist” line to white cardstock first and then cut them out with a white border around the edges. Lastly I adhered some of the star confetti with foam adhesive through the middle of the page and threw on some glitter dots for fun also. Thanks for looking!

Stunning Butterfly card by NEW Design Team Member - Lori Williams!


Hi Everyone…It’s Lori here with you today sharing a quick and easy card that is sure to brighten anyones day.  The butterflies are applied on the card as if they are taking off in flight.  
Fly card by Lori Williams

This card was simple to make.  I started off with some designer paper  ( 4 x 5 ¼ “) and used the stencil from the stamp set to add some paste randomly to the front of my card.  I then let it dry and then painted it with gold paint.  Once the paint set I sanded a bit to even and blend everything out.  Next I cut a piece of brown card stock 4 ¼ x 5  ½ “ and layered the embellish paper over the top.  I love stitching my cards on the sewing machine.  I think it gives it a great extra detail, so I stitched around this card.  Next I stamped multiply butterflies on brown designer paper with Versa Mark Ink and then covered with gold embossing powder and heat set.  Once I had done this for all the butterflies I fussy cut them out.  I then attached them to the front of the card with glue as if they were taking off in flight being sure to pinch their wings up a bit for a three dimensional look.  The card was finished off with the font letters spelling out FLY and then I glued everything down to a 4 ¼ x 5 ½ base card.  

I’m not sure who I’ll send this one out to, but I’m sure who ever it is, they’ll love it.  I hope you’ll give one a try yourself and send out to a friend or loved one.

Welcome newest Hampton Art Design Team Member - Deborah Nolan!!!

Hi, it’s Deborah, and welcome back to the Hampton Art blog!

I suppose my mind is filled with thoughts of travel because it’s that time of year and because we have a family reunion coming up. Or it could be that I’m pretty smitten with the Jillibean 12”x12” Sightseeing Stew patterned paper kit. Or both!
And speaking of 12”x12” patterned paper, I really appreciate that Jillibean’s 12”x12” papers usually have small patterns – which means we cardmakers can use them. (It’s nice to not have to search for a 6”x6” pad version of cool paper, don’t you think?)
Today’s card utilizes patterned paper and a sticker from the Sightseeing Stew patterned paper kit with coordinating stamps and gems.

4.  Spritz with the Opal Sea Oats mist.
5.  Ink the edges with Gingerbread ink - bring some of the color onto the main design area as shown.
6.  Die cut the Spellbinders Branching Out with the gold foil paper.  Mount on a mat of Aqua Denim (4.75" x 6.75").  Place on a 5 x 7" card base (Spring Green).
