Global Stamping Friends Twisted Blog Hop

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop. If you came from June's blog, thank you for continuing the hop. Our theme for this hop is Twisted. We are taking a product and using it in a different way than it was originally intended. 
My card and framed art project features the colors, Real Red, Blueberry Bushel, and Whisper White. All images and products used are from Stampin' Up!


I used Real Red Cardstock for the card base, Blueberry Bushel for the second card layer, and Whisper White for the card front.  I used the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder for the background on the Whisper White card layer.  I stamped the umbrella from Under My Umbrella Stamp Set onto the In-Color DSP using Blueberry Bushel ink. I punched the image using the Umbrella Builder Punch and the umbrella handle from Blueberry Bushel cardstock.  I stamped the boots and flower cluster images onto Whisper White using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I used Stampin' Blends to color the images.  I fussy cut the images and adhered to the card layer using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I stamped the saying from Peaceful Moments Stamp set using Blueberry Bushel onto Whisper White cardstock. I used the Label Me Lovely Punch to punch the saying, and one from Blueberry Bushel cardstock.  I cut the Blueberry Bushel one in half and adhered to the top and bottom of the punched saying.  Adhere to the card front.

For the framed art piece, I used the wavy ribbon die from the Arts & Crafts Dies for the stripes of the flag. I die-cut 16 pieces from Whisper White and Real Red Cardstock.  I glued each one onto a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock starting at the bottom and working up to the top, layering every other color.  After all layers are added, trim the ends to be even.  A square of Blueberry Bushel cardstock is adhered in the upper left corner and the stars are die-cut using the Stitched Stars Dies from Whisper White cardstock. I adhered this onto a Blueberry Bushel layer.  The saying is stamped from the Peaceful Moments Stamp set in Blueberry Bushel ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punched using the Classic Label punch.  I used Whisper White Crinkled Ribbon on the left side and tied the stamped label to the corner.  A die-cut from the Stitched Stars Dies and Blueberry Bushel Grosgrain Ribbon is adhered to the outer edge of the frame.
