Say Goodbye to Jar of Love and Hardwood

Jar of Love is another stamp set that has not gotten enough love from me.  For this card, I stamped the jar on vellum using Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I put it on some Wood Textures paper and Buffalo Check stamped paper that I had laying on my work table.  The background is Hardwood stamped using Crumb Cake on Crumb Cake.

Hardwood Father’s Day

On Saturday I held my new catalog celebration.  Not only did the attendees receive wonderful prizes, yummy cookies, the new catalog and free shipping but they also got to make this card.

JPollockDesigns.wordpress.com - Hardwood Wood-Mount Background Stamp, Crazy About You Photopolymer Stamp Set, Endless Birthday Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set, Decorative Label Punch, Stars Framelits Dies

This card was inspired by a Connie Collins post.

I cut a piece of Crumb Cake to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″, and folded it in half.  Next I inked up the Hardwood stamp with Chocolate Chip and put the folded Crumb Cake card CAREFULLY onto the stamp so the entire front panel would be covered.  On a separate piece of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Crumb Cake, I stamped the Hardwood with Chocolate Chip again.  With this piece, I cut along the “planks” to create my cross supports.  The edges of the card and the cross supports were inked with Chocolate Chip on the edges using a sponge.  For the sentiment, I stamped Father’s day in Dapper Denim and Happy in Crumb Cake onto Very Vanilla, then I punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch and inked the edges with Chocolate Chip.  The star was die cut out of Dapper Denim.

Playing with the new In Colors

I’m so sorry I haven’t been posting lately.  I’ve been creating just not taking pictures and actually blogging them.  🙂  I hope this is worth the wait.

I’ve been playing with the new 2016-2018 Stampin’ Up! In Colors creating some cards to showcase them and here is what I’ve come up with.  I got the initial idea from a photo Cecelia Nardus Erasmus posted in a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator group.

Sweet Sugarplum

I started by putting a piece of painters tape across the Hardwood stamp.  Then I inked the stamp, removed the tape (I almost forgot this a couple of times), put the paper on the stamp and rub the back of it with your hand.   My first attempt I used some older washi tape that I have laying around to mask off the white strip but the ink went through it.
