Now that we’ve made all of the formal introductions, let’s get onto the projects!

Stephanie Gold is featuring Fence Line: Spring + Noted: Simply Stitched A2 Vertical.

Stephanie’s garden gate scene is so serene! The blooming springtime flowers look lovely lined up against the fence. And she found the perfect die (from Gatsby Glamour) to act as a trellis and decorated it with a petite banner for added softness. Which dies in your collection might work as a clever substitute?
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Fence Line Spring, Choose Joy
  • INK: Fine Linen, Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, Lilac Grace, Smokey Shadow
  • PAPER: Stampers Select White
  • DIES: Fence Line Spring, Noted Simply Stitched, Gatsby Glamour
By having elements layered both in front of and behind her frame, Stephanie has created depth in her charming scene. She used the die and fence detail together to create a weathered white fence, keeping things nice and light. And the mud on those garden boots? Too cute!
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Fence Line Spring, Sentiment Staples: Congratulations
  • INK: Tropical Teal, Cocoa Bean, Fine Linen, Simply Chartreuse, Summer Sunrise, Terracotta Tile
  • PAPER: Stampers Select White, Simply Chartreuse
  • DIES: Fence Line Spring, Noted Simply Stitched
  • OTHER: Natural Twine, Red Seam Binding

 

Stephanie used large blooms and scallops to soften the straight lines and edges of this card. The inviting pastels also bring a feminine spin to what could be seen as an otherwise traditionally masculine project.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Fence Line Spring, Sentiment Staples: Congratulations, Farmers Market Florals
  • INK: True Black, Cocoa Bean, Lilac Grace, Amethyst Allure, Aqua Mist, Ocean Tides, Limeade Ice, Simply Charteuse, Fine Linen
  • PAPER: Stampers Select White, Enchanted Evening, Ocean Tides, Kraft
  • DIES: Fence Line Spring, Farmers Market Florals, Noted Simply Stitched, Noted A2 Collection
  • OTHER: Natural Twine

 

Melissa-Phillips

Melissa Phillips is featuring Paws & Kisses + A Bit More: Paws & Kisses.

Melissa’s adorable puppy love card is full of pattern, but she used very different scales to keep them from competing and making her card too busy. Her paper pieced pup is just about the cutest thing on legs! Paper piecing is a fantastic way to add color if you’re not comfortable with markers or watercolors. And her snappy pops of red are a great way to brighten up her neutral palette!
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Paws & Kisses
  • INK: Americana, Fine Linen, Honey Nut, Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy,  Olive Twist
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Bitty Big: Olive Twist
  • DIES: Paws & Kisses, Berry Wreath Tag
  • OTHER: Baker’s Twine, Copic marker

 

Using a large, heart-shaped die cut like Melissa did on this card is a brilliant way to reinforce the affectionate theme of her project. And creating a patterned layer by using the outlined puppies makes the more detailed “chosen” pup stand out even more.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Paws & Kisses, A Bit More: Paws & Kisses
  • INK: Americana, Fine Linen, True Black
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Kraft, Bitty Big: Soft Stone
  • DIES: Noted: Simply Stitched A2 Vertical, Paws & Kisses, A Bit More: Paws & Kisses, You Have My Heart
  • OTHER: Twine, watermark ink, white embossing powder, embossing enamel

 

Melissa’s frame of stamped paw prints adds a playful touch to her Shape Shifters: Square 1 die cut. That fun-loving tone works perfectly with the cheeky sentiment and speckled pup!
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Paws & Kisses, A Bit More: Paws & Kisses, Corner Adorner: April 
  • INK: Aqua Mist, Fine Linen, Honey Nut, Soft Stone, Cocoa Bean, True Black
  • PAPER: New Gray, Stamper’s Select White
  • DIES: A Bit More: Paws & Kisses, Shape Shifters: Square 1, Scalloped Tags
  • OTHER: Perfect Plaid Stencil Collection, twine, mini clothespin, enamel dots
