Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #272 Card Inspiration using Stampin' Up! Products order from Mitosu Crafts UK Online Shop

I have created a simple card using the Hostess Stamp Set called Merry Patterns for the main image. I only had limited supplies during our cardmaking and papercraft demonstration at the Basingstoke Hobbycraft when I prepared different elements for this card

Cardbase 14.8cm x 21cm
scored and folded at 10.5cm
Topper 6cm x 7.5cm

I used the deboss side of the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF) on the cardbase. I then added one of the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape across the front and a small piece of Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon (both tapered on one end using the handy and very sharp Paper Snips)

The reindeer was stamped on Whisper White card in two steps; first the outline in Tuxedo Black then the whole image in Chocolate Chip. My aligning of the stamps wasn't perfect but I quite like the added 'highlights' it created. Before adhering the topper, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the edges to add the Silver Mini Tinsel Trim which were cut to size before placing to get the crisp corners

The snowflakes were cut on Champagne Foil using the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies, one of each sizes then stacked. I then used Gold Metallic Thread for the bow in the centre

To finish the sketch, I used Pearl Basic Jewels coloured with Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends

So onto my card which I created for my niece, Zara, who turned eight last week using the mermaid image from the new Magical Day stamp set amongst other current Stampin' Up! products. The layout took a while to compose as I wanted Zara's name, age, an image topper and sentiment at the front. In the end I actually added more elements to get the balance right on the card

I used the Soft Sky stripe design from Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper for the background

I stamped the mermaid on Whisper White with Tuxedo Black then coloured with the Stampin' Blends. Die cut using the Circle Stitched Framelit then sponged Tempting Turquoise around the edges

The '8' from Number of Years was stamped in Peekaboo Peach then cut with the coordinating die from Large Numbers Framelits before adhering on Circle Stitched Vellum

I stamped the flourish from Awesomely Artistic with Old Olive ink on Whisper White, coloured with Stampin' Blends then sponged with Peekaboo Peach and Tempting Turquoise

The sentiment from Number of Years and name from Brushwork Alphabet were stamped using Calypso Coral ink on Whisper White then snipped down to size

To finish the card I used Silver Mini Sequin and dotted Basic Pearl Jewel coloured with Stampin' Blends

Magical Day by Stampin' Up! from Mitosu Crafts UK Online Shop

The Magical Day set consist of 12 stamps, with 5 fantasy images and 2 large sentiments from the Myths & Magic Suite on 36-37 of the 2018 Spring/Summer Catalogue. It can be ordered as a CLEAR

Itty Bitty Fruit Flowers for Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights

Vote for Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Flowers by Jay Soriano at Kylie Bertucci's blog

Thank you for stopping by today and welcome to Mitosu Crafts. It's Jay Soriano here with my entry for Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights

Kylie Bertucci's Blog Highlights Vote for Jay Soriano's Project using Stampin' Up! products

The theme for December is All About Flowers and I hope you will like my non traditional set of flower cards as you can VOTE for 5 of your favourites back at Kylie's blog ~ http://bit.ly/KyliesDecemberHighlightsVoteforMeHere

The 3 A6 cards I created were part of our OnStage display using new products from the Tutti-Frutti Suite in the upcoming 2018 Spring/Summer Catalogue

To build up the flowers, I applied Multipurpose Liquid Glue at the back of a punched 1/2" Circle on Gold Glimmer Paper then carefully placing the vellum shapes first along the edges then the same for the whisper white shapes for the petals

I kept to simple layouts as I wanted the flowers to be the focal points. The card layer is embossed with Brick Wall TIEF and I stamped the sentiment on a small piece of a Tutti-Frutti DSP with Rich Razzleberry Ink

For this card I used the Pear Punch to create the flower. I punched 8 pieces in Whisper White and 8 in Vellum. You can add dimension afterwards by curling the vellum petals

I used the Strawberry Punch for this flower, 6 in vellum and 6 in whisper white. These were bigger than the rest so it didn't need as much for the 1/2" circle in the centre. The Basic Gray layer was embossed with Layered Leaves Dynamic TIEF

I also used the Pineapple Punch on the DSP to create the elements along the Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon which looks like pom-poms. The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White with Berry Burst ink then punched with the Classic Label and snipped at one end

For the final card I used the Watermelon Punch (bottom flower), 8 in vellum and 8 in whisper white. I also used the Pineapple Punch (top flower), 8 in vellum and 8 in whisper white. I only wanted the circular shape for the petals so I stuck the half of the punched shapes on the glimmer paper. This gave more volume and lift at the back of the flower

Vote for Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Flowers by Jay Soriano at Kylie Bertucci's blog

The card layer was embossed in Petal Burst TIEF and added strip of DSP on the side for extra colour 

The stalks and leaves on all cards were die cut from the Flourish Thinlits. I also silver embossed on Wood Textures DSP to turn the basket stamp into flower pots

The new products used will be available to order from January 3rd 2018:
Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack 145657
Fruit Basket Photopolymer Stamp Set 145833
Tutti-Frutti 6"x6" Designer Series Paper 145606
