Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop

S

Welcome to the Scrapbooking Global June 2020 Blog Hop! This month we’re featuring new products from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. I used the new Celebrate Sunflowers bundle (Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set & Sunflowers Dies) as well as a few of the new 2020-2022 In Colors (Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, and Just Jade.) I used Press n Seal plastic wrap to keep all the little pieces of the die cuts in the right place. I’ve used this technique several times in the last couple weeks. I printed the photo in sepia so it would match the yellow/brown feel of the page.

Here’s the bundle:

Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle (Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set & Sunflowers Dies) @ Stampin' Up!S

Here’s what I made:

Stampin' Up! Bundle: Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and Sunflowers Dies, Annette scrapbook page, Candy Ford #stampcandy My dear, sweet cousin Annette and her husband were both infected with COVID-19 last month. He has been in ICU since May 19, and on a ventilator since June 6, but he’s still hanging on. She went into ICU on May 21 and died on June 1.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Early Espresso card stock (CS) cut to 11-3/4″ x 11-3/4″
  • Bumblebee CS cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-5/8″
  • So Saffron CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/2″
  • So Saffron CS cut to 4-1/4″ x 6-1/4″
  • Early Espresso CS cut to 4-1/8″ x 6-1/8″
  • So Saffron CS cut to 3-3/4″ x 7/8″

Stamped with the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set:

  • sentiment and sunflowers (large and small) in Early Espresso ink onto the 4″ x 5-1/2″ So Saffron CS
  • I also used the Early Espresso ink pad to ink just the very edges of the stamped CS piece.

Cut using the Sunflowers Dies:

  • one detailed sunflower from a scrap of So Saffron CS
  • one detailed sunflower from a scrap of Bumblebee CS
  • 4 leaves from a scrap of Just Jade CS
  • NOTE: I applied Press n Seal plastic wrap over the tops of all the die cuts to keep all the little pieces in place while I transferred them to the page.

Colored using Stampin’ Blends Markers:

  • stamped sunflowers in So Saffron, Just Jade, and Cinnamon Cider
  • die cut sunflower at top left in So Saffron

Assembled the page:

  • 11-3/4″ square Early Espresso CS glued onto a piece of 12″ x 12″ Bumblebee CS
  • stamped So Saffron CS glued onto the 4-1/8″ x 5-5/8″ Bumblebee CS, then glued onto the Early Espresso CS background
  • wrote name and dates on the So Saffron CS strip and adhered it onto the 4″ x 6″ photo using Stampin’ Seal
  • photo adhered onto the 4-1/8″ x 6-1/8″ Early Espresso CS, then onto the 4-1/4″ x 6-1/4″ So Saffron CS, using Stampin’ Seal
  • NOTE: I never use a wet adhesive, like glue, on photos.
  • outline parts removed from both die cut sunflowers – very carefully, making sure none of the inner petals came off of the Press n Seal
  • Bumblebee sunflower outline glued onto the top left of the Early Espresso CS background
  • applied glue onto the backs of all the So Saffron sunflower petals and used the Press n Seal to line them up inside the Bumblebee outline, then colored the petals with the So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Marker
  • So Saffron sunflower outline cut in half with my Paper Snips and glued onto the Early Espresso background so the cut edges would be covered up by the photo
  • Bumblebee sunflower (petals only) cut into 2 different size pieces, then applied glue to the backs of the petals and used the Press n Seal to place them so the cut edges would be covered up by the photo
  • photo adhered onto the Early Espresso background using Stampin’ Seal
  • leaves glued around the sunflowers, some whole, some only outlines, some only insides
  • Pumpkin Pie rhinestones applied onto the Early Espresso background in a meandering pattern
