Sprinkles of Life – Joy Of Sets Design Team Challenge Letter S

01cb3953c3546fdc81a13345c4265fbe830165e38512
Hello Crafty Friends! Welcome to The Joy of Stamps Challenge #2! Our letter for this round is S. I chose two stamp sets, Sheltering Tree and Sprinkles of Life. I just loved the little apples on the tree.

Measurements:

Lemon Lime cardstock-
* 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
* 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 for Scallop Circle
* 3 x 3 for Largest Square
Real Red cardstock:
* 4 x 5 1/4 for layer
* 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 for largest scallop square
* 1 3/8 x 5 1/8 for strip on side of card
* 2 x 2 for red scallop circle
Shimmery White cardstock :
* 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 for largest stitched square
* Scraps for basket and apples
Color Theory Designer Series Paper
* 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 for layered background

I stamped the image of the tree in crumb cake ink and then used the leaves stamp in pear pizzazz ink, I slightly offset the leaves and stamped again with lemon lime twist ink. I stamped the ground in lemon lime twist.

I used the cherry from Sprinkles of Life to stamp on strips of whisper white cardstock. Color the apples with the real red marker. I punched out each apple with tree builder punch. I used the fine glue tip pen to add a clear layer of glue on each apple then set aside to dry.

I stamped the basket in crumb cake on a piece of shimmery white cs and then cut out.
I added the apples onto the tree and into the basket.
I cut out all the layering pieces with the different sized die frames. Attaching them all together and layering onto card base.
I added a piece of lemon lime twist woven ribbon to the skinny real red cs on the right hand side of the card. A mini bow was added towards the bottom.
To make the little cut out of Thanks a bunch, I cut out with the words towards the right side with the classic label punch. I then cut a little flag at the end of the words.
I did sponge lemon lime twist around the edges of the color theory DSP.

Hello Crafty Friends!

Do we have a birthday coming up? Here is a quick card I made using the Birthday memories dsp and the matching die framelits
I used the framelits to cut out the cake and presents from the designer series paper. It is super easy and fast. I loved how Stampin’ Up! Created the dsp to work with the dies.
The baker man is from the matching stamp set and I used our watercolor pencils to color him with a blender pen.

Hope everyone has a fantastic week!

I used the Layering Leaves 3D Embossing Folder on the 4 x 5 1/2 Lemon Lime Twist CS. layered that onto the black cs and attached to card base.
Stamp the sentiment in black and then die cut with stitched square framelit. Layer onto Daffodil delight scallop square and attach to card.

I stamped the lemon in daffodil delight and cut out with lemon punch. The inside of the lemon I stamped with daffodil delight and used the 1 3/4 punch to punch it out and then I cut it in half to make wedges.
Stamp lemon lime twist cs with the matching ink and then cut out with lemon punch. I attached everything with dimensionals.

For the inside I stamped the lemon on the corners of the white cs then added the sentiment.

After making this card I am off to make myself some freshly squeezed lemonade! lol
Have a wonderful week my friends.
