Crafting on the Hill Team Member, Elizabeth Adams, absolutely fell in love with the This Little Piggy Stamp Set when we got a sneak peek at OnStage Savannah.  Here’s one of the adorable cards she’s crafted with it:

piggy

Isn’t it adorable?  Of course, so many of us immediately thought of a “certain” precious children’s story, or of a “certain” movie about a very precocious little pig.   She stamped the pig image on watercolor paper, then cut out that and a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Too, too cute!

Here’s the This Little Piggy Stamp Set and you can order it here.

Painted Harvest and Merry Patterns Card Ideas

Painted Harvest and Merry Patterns Card Ideas

Fall into Autumn with the Painted Harvest Bundle

The Painted Harvest Bundle is so much FUN to create lovely autumn projects!

Here are a couple of the cards I’ve created using this set:

Painted harvest 1 with logopainted harvest 3 with logo

There a SO many different color combinations you can use for these flowers to create so many different looks!  I like Crushed Curry as a base, with Cajun Craze or Tangerine Tango as the top.  Early Espresso is my preferred color for the center, stamped 2 or 3 times to get the desired effect.

The top card is stamped on the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, and the leaves are stamped in Garden Green.  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso, then I used the Pretty Little Labels Punch and mounted it with dimensionals.  (Or “puffy dots”!)  A strip of Burlap Ribbon was just the right finishing touch!

The bottom card is stamped onto Very Vanilla mounted on Daffodil Delight Cardstock.  The leaves were stamped in Garden Green on Old Olive Cardstock, then punched with the Leaf Punch.  There are 2 small pieced of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper bannered at the top corner.  The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso, then punched with the Everyday Labels Punch and mounted with dimensionals.

Tips and Tricks for using this lovely Painted Harvest Stamp Set:

  • Stamp all layers of the image

  • Use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat
  • Keep in mind that lighter colors won’t show up as deeply as darker colors
  • Play around with saturation levels (e.g., stamping full strength vs. stamping off) to get your desired look
  • The stamp is not supposed to match the flowers on the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper

Savoring the last of Summer and Planning for Fall

Seems like everyone has a favorite season, and mine is most definitely summer, with spring coming in a close second.  I love being warm!  But I love that we live in a place where we get to experience seasonal weather for all four seasons.  And fall is absolutely spectacular here in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia!

So because it’s still Summertime, we played with water in the August Quick and Easy Cards Class.

Wonderful Ways with Watercolor

We made a watercolor card using Berry Burst, Fresh Fig and Sweet Sugarplum Classic Ink Pads and the Aqua Painters on Shimmery White Cardstock.   The Daisy and sentiment are stamped in Berry Burst and the Shimmery White Cardstock is mounted on Berry Burst Cardstock.

One of the versatile uses of the Stampin’ Up Classic Ink Pads is that you can press down on the closed Ink Pad and put ink on the lid, so that when you open it, you just pick up the color from the lid with the Aqua Painter.  You can also use a Stampin’ Spritzer to lightly mist the paper with water before watercoloring.  So many different options, it’s fun to experiment and find what works best for you! The inks were layered on the paper, with Sweet Sugarplum across the top, then Berry Burst, then Fresh Fig, constantly blending them.

The Shimmery White Paper is so easy to use for watercoloring, and is a slightly different texture from our Watercolor Paper.  Once I got started, I just had to create some more watercolor cards, since it was just too fun!

watercolor daisy w logo

The stamp sets were the Delightful Daisy and Colorful Seasons and the punch is the Daisy Punch finished off with a Faceted Gem.  Just love the cool summery colors on this card!

I also wanted to use the High Tide Stamp Set to create a watercolor card, appropriately!

watercolor seaside w logo

For this card, I used Soft Sky, Pool Party and Marina Mist combo and mounted the Shimmery White Cardstock on Marina Mist Cardstock.  I liked the more natural color of Crumb Cake Cardstock for the card base.

And Fall is most certainly coming, so I used leaves from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set to create my first autumn card of the season.  I used a Stitched Shapes Framelit to cut out the sentiment, then added some Metallic Accents sequins and a linen thread bow to complete it.

watercolor leaves w logo

Then I decided I HAD to do just one more card with the Delightful Daisy Bundle!

daisy dsp card w logo

I just LOVE this Designer Series Paper!  It’s just SO easy to use to make a beautiful card quickly.  This daisy and sentiment were stamped in Flirty Flamingo and the Designer Series Paper is mounted on Wisteria Wonder Cardstock.  The Thick White Twine Bow completed the look perfectly!

Here’s the Daisy Delight Photopolymer Bundle with the Daisy Delight Stamp Set and the Daisy Punch.  Just click on the image for more info.

Happy Happenings here on the Hill

It’s DEFINITELY still summer here in the South, but it’s time to start thinking about those Christmas crafts!  The Holiday Catalog comes out September 1st (you’re going to LOVE it!), but this is a beautiful, versatile Bundle you can order NOW so you can get crafting!!

Carols bundle 817

Look how beautiful these cards are!

Doesn’t the Deck the Halls card make you want to break out singing it?!?

th_sample-3_carols_xmasth_sample-5_carols_xmas

We’ll be creating a card using this Bundle in the August Quick and Easy Cards Class, so come join the FUN!  See details below.

The daisy has always been one of my VERY favorite flowers, so we’ll be using the Daisy Punch that is now available for ordering.  It’s just lovely, and actually very versatile.  I use the word “versatile” frequently when referring to Stampin’ Up stamps, dies, and punches, because they can always be used to mix and match with other sets to come up with some great ideas!

This is just one colorful card made with the Delightful Daisy Bundle, but there are soooo many other ideas, a few of which you’ll see in August Cards Class.

Daisy Delight Bundle  Item 145361

So cheerful–makes me smile!

I’ve been “having a go,” as our friends across the pond say, at learning new watercolor techniques, so our Class technique card this month will be watercolor “smooshing.”  Sounds like some messy fun using Stampin’ Up products to create some unique cards.

Quick and Easy Cards Class

Tuesday, August 6th, 6:30-8:30 PM

The August Quick and Easy Cards Class will be a “crossover” event, since we’ll make end of the summer flowers cards, play with water AND make a Christmas card. One of the Bundles we’ll use is the new Carols of Christmas Bundle, so versatile you can use it for much more than just Christmas.
BUT it’s still August, and it’s still HOT, so we’ll also be doing a watercolor card using the smooshing technique, just for FUN!
–Make 3 cards, 2 each of 3 designs with envelopes.
–GREAT Class for anyone–beginner to experienced! Bring a friend and you AND your friend choose 3 cards from my cards stash.
–Cost is $15 or FREE with a $20 Product Order.
–Please bring scissors and adhesives.
–RSVP by Sunday, August 6th.
–Held at Crafting on the Hill Studio just north of Jasper.
