Look Out World! card by designer Lori Williams featuring Graphic 45

Hi Crafters, it's Lori and today I have a retro card featuring the stamps from the Graphic 45 collections: Come Away with Me and Raining Cats and Dogs. 

Look Out World! card by Lori Williams


One of my most favorite go to stamps is from the Raining Cats and Dogs #3...it's the little scroll flourish and it's such a great way to add that extra little detail around a sentiment or center piece.  It's just simple and so pretty.  The sentiment itself is from the Come Away with Me 3 stamp set and I really like the way the font is open in the middle.  This left me room to go in a add some coordinating color to my sentiment and honestly I don't think it even looks like it was stamped...LOVE IT!!!! 

I added some little handmade flowers to the card along with some sewing machine stitching which is something I love to do to my cards..it's that added detail.  With the right paper and the right stamps (Hampton Art) you can pull off one of kind beauties in no time.

Jillibean Soup Cool as a Cucumber Soup cards by designer Joy Ott

Welcome back to the Hampton Art blog! Today I'm sharing two cards using the Cool As A Cucumber Soup line from Jillibean Soup and Hampton Art.

I doubled up the foam tape on the back of the guitar on this first card. It helps give the image more dimension. I also used a single layer of foam tape on the greeting.

I also doubled up the foam tape on the back of the bike on this second card.

Officially Old card by designer Patty Folchert

Just in case you have a friend or family member that needs to be reminded that they are “now officially old”, and who doesn’t? A playful card is just the ticket with a bright color scheme and Hampton Art/Laugh Out Loud and Vintologie stamped images.

Officially Old card by Patty Folchert

Working with a black card base I began with a mat from Holly Berry Borscht/Bite Size Bits “b” side red polka dots. Next using red ink I stamped arrows image onto Soup Staples III/Kraft Triangles paper as shown and corner rounded the mat before adding with 3D foam dots to the card front. Next I added one of the new File Cards from the Soup Staples III sides collection. Then using red ink I stamped the “Officially Old” sentiment onto one of the kraft tags. A wood sprinkle in red enamel was added to the top of the tag and then they were attached to the file card as shown. For just a touch of bling I added five turquoise sequin stars from the Holly Berry Borscht collection.

Now you have a humorous card to share with your older friends or family.

Officially older,
Patty

Are you planning on sending or giving out any Halloween cards this year? Maybe you are going to make little treats for neighbors, co-workers, teachers, or friends? Well it’s not too late but you better get a move on! Here are a couple of Halloween-themed cards that might give you some ideas. 
Halloween card by Gretchen McElveen

Happy Halloween card by Gretchen McElveen

To make these I started with black cardstock as the base of the cards. The patterned paper is from the Jillibean Soup “Owloween Stew” and “Witches Brew” 6x6 paper pads. Then I used a bunch of fun die cuts (aren’t the tags & cat so cute?!) and the “Halloween” mini placemat to embellish the cards. I also embellished with string and some of the KI Memories glitter dots for a little sparkle. I used lot of foam adhesive to adhere the die cuts to give the cards some fun dimension. Thanks for looking and happy Halloween!

Bonne Fete card by designer Gini Williams Cagle

Today I have a girly-girl card to share with you.  It just seems that perfume bottles and lavender are just meant to be together!  I combined papers from Graphic 45 along with their Perfume stamp set for this sweet little note card.  

Bonne Fete card by Gini Williams Cagle

I stamped the perfume bottle in black and fussy cut the image.  Then I stamped the "memories" label on the bottle with purple ink.  I used foam dots to attach it to the card to add some height.

  1. Make card base for a 4.25” x 5.5” card and round opposite corners.
  2. Apply embossing paste with trowel over stencil and let dry.
  3. Once embossing paste has dried, cut a panel of patterned paper and adhere.

Make sure you wash your stencil and trowel immediately after use. Otherwise, it will dry and damage your stencil.
If you haven't played with embossing paste yet, you need to remedy that ASAP!
As Martha would say, It's a good thing.

May All Your Dreams… card by designer Patty Folchert

Here is a “sweet” card created with its own magic wand, suitable for a tween girl, small girl’s Birthday or baby shower card. This card came together with JIllibean’s newest papers and embellishments from the Soup Staples III collection and a fun Vintologie stamp and stencil set.

May All Your Dreams Come True card by Patty Folchert


First I created the card base from Soup Staples III/Graph It paper. Next I chose a Notebook Tag from the Everyday pack and stamped the Vintologie sentiment in black ink. Then, I grabbed the chevron stencil out of the Vintologie stamp and stencil pack. Using white pigment ink I inked up the stencil onto plain kraft paper and set aside to dry. Then I chose two of the new kraft tags from the Soup Staples Sides collection and used the Soup Staples/Kraft Triangles as a backer for the “Sweet” tag and some Holly Berry Borscht/3 Cups of Presents for the “star cutout” tag backer. The next step was to fussy cut two strips from the stenciled chevrons into arrows as shown. Then I arranged the tags onto the card front as shown with a piece of the Soup Staples/Read Me in the center. Last I corner rounded the bottom corners and added the star stick pin and white cotton string double bow.

There you have it, a precious card to share with that special little one in your life.

Dreaming in Soft Colors,
Patty

Come Away with Me card by designer Gini Williams Cagle featuring Graphic 45

Hi, It's Gini and today I have a very vintage card to share with you.  For this card, I combined some of Graphic 45's papers with their wonderful stamps.  Since my papers were very neutral, I stamped the map image with red ink, and colored my sightseeing girl with some brighter colored pencils.  I overstamped the map with my sentiment and added a little bow and bling to finish everything up.

  5. Adhere gold stars as desired on card; follow by adhering gems in star centers.
  6. Apply five rows of black glitter tape to cardstock scrap and die cut Blessed Stars.
  7. Snip bow off of Blessed Stars die-cut and set aside.
  8. Place top of Blessed Stars tendrils die-cut to card in area of stamped circle and adhere by wrapping gold glitter tape around card front.
  9. Apply a 5" length of black glitter tape to scrap cardstock, cut a 1/4" strip length-wise, and adhere strip to center of gold tape; trim ends flush with card.

Make sure your rows abutt one another precisely - no overlap or spaces between. Die cut as usual and voila! You have fancy-pants glittery goodness that nobody will ever suspect is a tape-covered scrap of cardstock.

A different take on a Halloween card by designer Lori Williams

Hi everyone, Lori here with you today and I've got some Steampunk magic up my sleeve for you.  I love the eerie side of Halloween...not the gory side just the retro cool side.  So I thought I would create a spellbinding card for you and I was able to pull it off with the help of the Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells paper and coordinating stamp sets.  

Spells card by Lori Williams


I like to layer all my paper pieces with solid backgrounds that give an edge.  This really helps each of the paper pieces to pop and stand out on their own.  I stamped the Spells stamp on a piece of chipboard and then stamped the wings.  I then fussy cut the wings out and curled them a bit before adding them to the back of my center sentiment.  I love the way the wings and the butterfly really look like they are going to take off in flight.  The colors in this collection also really stand out and make such a bold statement...I love it.

Two great gifts to make and take by designer Gini Williams Cagle

It's always a good thing to have creative ideas for hostess gifts tucked away when you need one!  Local honey is plentiful now, so I decided to create a tag to go with this sweet gift.

Gift Tag by Gini Williams Cagle

I used the Hampton Art honeycomb mask from SCO647 to create my background.  For a quick project, I used a combination of alpha stickers from Jillibean Soup and Ki Memories.  I added a couple of stamped flowers from Friends ( SC0164) and the darling bees

Pillow boxes are such a sweet way to wrap a little goody - and Jillibean Soup has great little kraft paper ones, that are just waiting to be embellished.

I really like the natural look of the kraft, so I wanted to stay with that look - so after I stamped my sentiment and the flourishes on the box, I just added a little paper raffia bow to finish it up.

Love You to the Moon & Back card by designer Lori Williams

Love You To The Moon & Back card by Lori Williams

This card is one that just has a shabby soft feel to me.  I used a mix of stamp sets on this card to help me create the main cluster of images.  I think my favorite is the crown (PS0769 7 Gypsies)  I stamped it on Kraft paper and then fussy cut it out.  It makes it’s own little embellishment and adds a lot to the cluster.  I had the star die cut so I stamped the sentiment ( SC0645)  on that and then nestled it all in amongst another star, flowers and ribbon.  The dog stamp is from the Raining Cats and Dog’s series from G45/Hampton Art ( IC0314) …and I’m a sucker for a Saint Bernard.  

I stamped him on Kraft paper and the fussy cut him out and adhered him to a tag.  I stamped the sentiment on the bottom of the dog and colored in with colored pencil for just a pop of color.  It’s such a wide range of images but when it’s clustered all together it comes together to create a sweet card.

Fly Away card by designer Patty Folchert using Jillibean Soup stencils

Today I am sharing a card created with the new Jillibean Soup Stamp & Stencil Set Butterfly Dictionary and spray mists. 

Fly Away card by Patty Folchert

First I selected heavy paper suitable for misting and placed down my butterfly stencil. Then I sprayed the mist over the stencil. Next I removed the stencil and sprayed a contrasting mist color to add depth. Then I set that aside to dry and made a dark grey mat from cardstock. Then I chose a “fly away” sentiment from the Vintologie Stamp & Stencil set to complement the design and stamped in black onto the wood flag. I also added some thin cotton twine and tied in a knot around the wood flag. Last it was all added to a black cardstock base, to keep the panel the focus.


There you have it another fun technique to use with your stamp and stencil sets. So what are you waiting for, give it a try today. Just a warning, misting may or may not be addictive…

Make Today… card by designer Patty Folchert

Who says Christmas themed paper can’t be used for an everyday card? Not me, because clearly the example below if proof to the contrary. A fun everyday card created from the new Holly Berry Borscht collection from Jillibean Soup, paired up with a new stamp and stencil set- together they are simply delightful!

Make Today Ridiculously Amazing card by Patty Folchert

I started by stamping the doilies onto kraft paper in brown ink and fussy cutting them out. Then I covered the card base in 3 Cups Presents from the Holly Berry Borscht collection, with the center banner cut from Pinch of Peppermint. Next I added the doilies with 3D foam dots for added dimension. Then I chose one of the new Jillibean Soup note cards for the perfect sentiment. I added the paper strip to the edge and added to the card. Then I chose some diecut butterflies for enhancement and attached as shown.


Make your ridiculously amazing card soon and share it with your own real life super hero.

Big Score! card by designer Lori Williams

Masculine cards seems to be a challenge for a lot of paper crafters.  The good news is the Good Ol’ Sport Stamps really help to make a great card.  
Big Score card by Lori Williams

My main image was stamped and then colored in with colored pencils.   The “Go Team” banner along with the “Big Score” banner were both stamped on patterned paper from Graphic 45’s Good Ol’ Sport paper collection and then cut out by hand in the shapes.  I also stamped the basketball and colored in then fussy cut it out to add into my little cluster in the bottom right hand corner.  All of my papers were backed on black cardstock for two reasons, first I wanted to add some stability to the over all build up and the second was the black really made each piece pop.  Foam tape was the hero that helped me pull this dimensional beauty together.  I do love me some foam tape.  


Here is a list of the two different stamp sets I used on this card: 
G45 Good Ol’ Sport IC0300 and IC0301.
