Pinewood Planks with Hometown Greetings for #GDP119


Hope you had a lovely Christmas and enjoying the holidays. It's Jay here with a quick creative share of my challenge entry for Global Design Project #GDP119

 Global Design Project

With the theme of 'Home for the Holidays', I decided to use Hometown Greetings Edgelits with Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder


Emerald Envy cardstock was die cut in circle first. I applied Tranquil Tide ink on one side of the embossing folder before running through the Big Shot again. I then sponged Emerald Envy and Tranquil Tide ink around the edges

I did a quick wash of Night of Navy ink with Aqua Painter on another piece of Whisper White cardstock and placed behind

I coloured the house and trees die cut using Stampin' Markers then used Paper Snips for the bottom edge to make it look more like snow


For the detail on the left, I used Copper Trim to create a bow then tied a Gold Ribbon in the middle with the excess pulled to left and adhered with a Mini Glue Dot

I used the Leaf Punch on Vellum, shaped with the Paper Snips and tucked under the bow

To finish the card, I used Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to accent some areas of the die cuts and leaves as well as flicking against the lid to create random splatters

Paper Craft Crew Inspiration Challenge #PCC273 ~ Holidays!

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch Challenge #PCC273 using Stampin' Up! products order from Mitosu Crafts UK Online Shop

Welcome to Mitosu Crafts. It's Jay here with the Paper Craft Crew challenge #PCC273. This Holidays themed challenge is running for 2 weeks, so if life is a bit hectic at the moment pre-Christmas, there's always next week to craft and join in the challenge

Paper Craft Crew Holidays Inspiration Challenge #273 using Stampin' Up! Products Order from Mitosu Crafts UK Online Shop

For my project this week, I took a few elements from the inspiration photo and I created this poinsettia card using the leaf dies from Orchid Builder Framelits

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch Challenge #PCC273 using Stampin' Up! products order from Mitosu Crafts UK Online Shop

A6 cardbase
Basic Gray mat 14.3cm x 10cm
Wood Textures Designer Series Paper layer 13.8cm x 9.5cm
Basic Gray strip 13.8cm x 1cm

I stamped the twigs on Wood Textures DSP with Early Espresso ink, some in 2nd Generation (stamping off technique)

I wrapped Gold 1/8" Ribbon along the Basic Gray strip then along a stick to get the curls by using the Heat Tool

I used the Leaf Punch to get 2 Tranquil Tide and 3 Vellum leaves

To create the poinsettia, I stamped the leaves from the coordinating photopolymer stamp set, Climbing Orchid, with Cherry Cobbler ink on Real Red cardstock then die cut

I shaped each leaf using the side of the Paper Snips then used the 1" Circle Punch for the base

I applied Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the circle base then arranged the leaves to look like a poinsettia. I worked with the bigger leaves first, leaving a bit of space for the smaller ones in the middle

For a bit of sparkle, I used Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the poinsettia and vellum leaves then added the large Gold Faceted Gem

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments in Tranquil Tide ink. Punched with the Classic Label then snipped the ends before adhering with Mini Stamping Dimensionals

2018 Spring/Summer Catalogue Display Stampers ~ Bird Banter Part 1


Thanks for stopping by and welcome to Mitosu Crafts. We are sharing 4 card fronts from our display samples at the Stampin' Up! OnStage local event in Solihull

The new photopolymer stamp set Bird Banter on page 42 of the Spring/Summer 2018 catalogue contains 19 stamps with 5 bird images which are great for the Stampin' Blends or Watercolour Pencils

Bird Banter #145852


Clear embossed Tree Rings stamp on Basic Black cardstock. The bird was coloured with the Stampin' Blends then fussy cut with Paper Snips. The tail was also cut then angled to sit better within the card design

Island Indigo Ombre Ribbon was adhered across the card front about 1/3 from the bottom



The sentiment was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento then snipped and arranged diagonally


This card uses the same bird design but stamped in Basic Black Archival, coloured with the Watercolour Pencils, fussy cut and the tail was left as stamped

The new crepe Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon in Lemon Lime Twist was adhere in 6 rows with Tear & Tape then framed with Wood Textures DSP on Mini Stamping Dimensionals

Linen Thread was wrapped around the Whisper White card 3 times and the crepe paper ribbon was used to create the leaves behind the parrot; colouring the middle with Stampin' Blends


The Sheet Music Background Stamp was used for this next card, masking where the 2 budgies were going to be stamped first

The birds were coloured with Stampin' Blends before sponging the Whisper White base in Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake ink

Added a strip of Basic Gray card on the left and tassels of Silver Mini Sequin Trim and Linen Tread on Basic Black Baker's Twine with the sentiment punched with the Classic Label


The mats for this card is from the new Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Papers on page 29

Glossy Cardstock was gutted first with the square Stitched Shapes Framelit to get the topper. The background was then embossed with Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder

The birds were stamped on the square Glossy Cardstock and coloured with Stampin' Blends. The alcohol pens doesn't move or blend as well on this card as it dries too quick so you will need to colour fast


We hope you enjoy these projects using the Bird Banter Stamp Set which will be available to order from 3rd January. If you live in the UK and would love a copy of the 2018 Spring/Summer Catalogue, please email us with your details at


Thanks again for stopping. Until next time, BYEEEEE!
