Chain Card Swap Blog Hop – Genna

Back in October 2023 I joined a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators to take part in a ‘Card swap with a Twist – Chain card Swap.

How does this work?

The swap is similar to an old fashioned chain letter or I would say…”Chinese Whispers with Cards’

  • We were given a list of names – 11 in total (not including myself)
  • Create a simple card
  • Send to first person on the list
  • Wait to receive a card from someone…
  • ‘CASE’ that card and send it to the 2nd person on your list
  • Repeat until all people on the list has received a card

Now this is the fun part….When you CASE the card you received, it’s your interpretation of the received card. Just like ‘Chinese Whispers’ you may not end up with what you originally designed

Round 9 Simply Sparkling

This card was so much fun….I got to CASE a lovely friend of mine Kayla, I received her cards and got so excited for the layers and fun her card shared.So I hope mine also shares the same fun and excitement.

For this card I used the Simply Sparking Bundle and paired it up with the Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper. The Simply Sparking Bundle is one of the Online Exclusives, a great Bundle for the young or young of heart.

I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, adding the swirl on the can with Berry Burst and the wording also with Memento Tuxedo Black. This was fun to colour using the Stampin’ Blends in Smoky Slate, Berry Burst and Bubble Bath.

  • Card Base – Lemon Lime Twist
  • Matte – Berry Burst
  • Card Front -Bright & Beautiful DSP
  • Basic White panel embossed with the Splatters Embossing Folder from the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder Duo
  • 2 thin strips of Bright & Beautiful DSP
  • Bubbles cut from Bright & Beautiful DSP
  • Sentiment stamped in Tuxedo Black on Basic White

I love all the layers and the Kayla’s folded corner.

Chain Card Swap Blog Hop – Cheryl

Round 2 – Circle Sayings

The design elements I used from the card I received were

  • The strips of Designer Series Paper on the card Base
  • 3 punched elements

Using the White Center 12 x 12 Specialty Paper, I tore strips showing the white core of the paper to add texture and maybe a hint of the ocean. These were then adhered to a Night of Navy Card Base.

I then punched 2 circles using the 2 3/4″ Punch that comes with the Circle Sayings Bundle in Azure Afternoon and Daffodil Delight Cardstock.

On a piece of Basic White Cardstock I stamped the ocean image from the Circle Sayings stamps in Memento Tuxedo Black. Using Blends this was then coloured – Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lolly, Azure Afternoon & Night of Navy.

Along the edges of the breaking waves I added a little white with the White Watercolour Pencils. This was then punched out with the 2 3/4″ Punch. A twist of White Bakers Twine under the stamped circle and a few Tinsel Gems added to finish the card.

Round 4 – Meandering Meadows

This card makes my heart sing….I love the way it turned out. I used Meandering Meadows Suite for this card, which you will find in the Online Exclusives.

For my card I changed the orientation of the card, from a landscape to a portrait. The back ground I stamped the small images with Fresh Freesia Ink onto Fresh Freesia cardstock.

A strip of Lemon Lolly cardstock adds a little extra colour next to the Meandering Meadows Designer Series Paper.

A White Vellum circle was cut using the Deckled Circle Dies. The flower images were stamped using Basic Gray Ink and coloured with Blends…Granny Apple Green, Lost Lagoon, Shaded Spruce, Fresh Freesia, Lemon Lolly, Blueberry Bushel, Misty Moonlight and Daffodil Delight.

The sentiment was stamped in Fresh Freesia Ink.

The Flowering Zinnias 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Designer Series Paper will bring that pop of colour to any paper craft!

Nelson Falls

Today I am taking part in ‘Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop’. I will be joining in with some amazingly talented Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world. We are happy that you can join us and hope that we can Inspire you to make creations of your own. You will find the Links to the others participating below…..I hope you enjoy!

For my page I decided to use the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder, Stippled Roses Dies & Foursquare Decorative Masks from 2023-24 Stampin’ Up!® Annual & Jan- Apr 2024 Mini Catalogues.

Scrapbook page created using the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder and Foursquare Decorative Masks. Photo taken at Nelson Falls TAS.

How I created my page…

Photo

I only had one photo, 4 x 6″ to use for this lay out so to make it look a little bigger the photo was matted and then a second mat was off set to create a larger solid image.

Layout

I wanted this page to look a bit ‘grunge’… or ‘natural/earthy’.

Using Pebble Path Ink, Foursquare Decorative Masks and Blending Brushes I add ink to two corners of my Crumb Cake 12 x12″ Cardstock. I then went around the edges of the cardstock with both Pebble Path and Mossy Meadow Ink.

With the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder, Crumb Cake & Pecan Pie Cardstock cut the tree rings, one set from each colour. The Crumb Cake rings are cut down with the smaller die. These are then layered to create a two tone Tree Ring.

Die cut branches in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive from the Tree Ring Dies. I also added some Pebble Path die cuts, cut using the Stippled Roses Dies. These dies are lighter and just add some softness to the lay out.

I then added tree rings and branches from under the photo, 3 at the bottom corner and 1 from the top corner.

The title ‘ Nelson Falls’ was created with the Mini Alphabet Dies. This alphabet die is one piece die, Add a sheet of Adhesive Sheet to the back of the cardstock and run through the Cut & Embossing Machine. After taking out the letters required, the extra were put into a cello bag so can be used if required at a latter time.

Journaling

My jounaling for this layout is very simple…usually when you journal, it’s wise to think about when, were and who your photo is about. Or any story that maybe attached to your photo.

‘We arrived at Nelson Falls late in the afternoon, so camped along the side of the Lyell Highway. So we could take photos in a better light the following day’

This was a bit scary as the Highway went through the National Park with thick trees either side of the road. Also there was only a small parking area and our camper wasn’t very big. But it was worth it, the photo is amazing. This photo was taken approx. 30 years ago and this is the second time I’m scrapping them….that’s another story for another day.

Enduring Beauty

On my Tuesday night ‘Live with Michele’ I created this card using Stampin’ Up!® Enduring Beauty Stamp. This stamp is part of a Enduring Beauty Bundle, the bundle includes stamps, dies and masks.

Measurements Used…

 ColourImperial/LetterMetric/A4
Card BaseBasic White4 ¼ x 11”, score @ 5 ½”10.5 x 29.9cm, score @ 14.9cm
Card MatLost Lagoon4 x 5¼”10 x 14.4cm
Card Front BaseBasic White3 ⅞ x 5 ⅛”9.7 x 14.1cm
Card Insert MatLost Lagoon4 x 5¼”10 x 14.4cm
Card InsertBasic White3 ⅞ x 5 ⅛”9.7 x 14.1cm
SentimentBerry Burst½ x 4¼”1.3 x 10.5cm
Sentiment MatLost Lagoon⅝ x 4¼”1.6 x 10.5cm

This is a simple card to create, masking an area off area approx 6 x 8cm (2¼ x 3½”) using masking paper or ‘Post it Note Paper’. You want the masked area to be smaller than the stamp image, so that it has some ‘black and white’ image. Make sure the outer edge of the card front is covered so ink doesn’t colour the areas you want clean.

Using a Blending Brush, start with Fresh Freesia Ink and brush in a circular motion down 2/3rds of card front. From top down add Berry Burst to the top third of the card. Blending the Berry Burst into the Fresh Freesia. This also hid where I added too much ink in the Fresh Freesia (see Video).

Working from bottom up add Lost Lagoon blending it into the Fresh Freesia. Remove the masking paper.

Using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp the Enduring Beauty image over the top.

Instagram Story by Srusht Patil showing Tutorial of Pop Card .

I saw this card on Instagram a couple of weeks ago and decided to give it a try. The card made by Srusht is a large card format so I have reduced the measurements to fit with a standard card. I have made a few changes in using less DSP to suite what I was wanting to create.
