Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkin for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Color Challenge. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Cling Stamp Set the Stampin’ Up! Encircled in Friendship Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

These are the beautiful colors we had to work with this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of Early Espresso 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim around the layered panel and tied a bow. I adhered the layered card front to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I punched the sentiment out using the Everyday Label Punch and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few of the gold leaves from the Expressions In Ink Ephemera Pack to the card front under the label using Glue Dots. I added a few gold Brushed Metallic Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Encircled in Friendship stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the fern image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper, on the side of the panel. I adhered a strip of the Blackberry Beauty DSP to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the fern image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink, stamping off once, to the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Blackberry Beauty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and the weekend is right around the corner.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Sunny Sunflowers. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set for my Free Style Collage Card. I was inspired by the beautiful sunflower bouquet and the colors.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #160.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a Smoky Slate card front using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. Using my Blending Brush, I brushed a little Smoky Slate Ink over the embossed panel to give it a little color. I adhered the card front to a Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Just Jade, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Succulent, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampn’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Sunflower Dies. I cut 5 of the sprig dies using the Sunflower Dies from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock. I cut the large leaf die from the Beautiful Leaves Dies from a panel of Garden Green cardstock.

I adhered the large Garden Green leaf to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I arranged the sunflowers the way I wanted them and adhered them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sprigs under the sunflowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the stems only. I made a triple loop bow using the Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon and adhered it to the center of the sunflowers using a Glue Dot. I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered it to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sunny Sentiments Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in 2 of the corners of the panel and colored them in the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the sunflowers in the same as I did for the card.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Happiest Of Birthdays Halloween

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I’m still here in Georgia. I’m having such an awesome time, I just want to stay here with everyone. We’ve been crafting, laughing, eating, crafting, laughing and eating and just having an awesome time. I don’t remember the last time I ate this much good food, and it’s very healthy too, lots of veggies. I’ll be leaving later tonight to head back to New Jersey. I’ll share some of the projects with you soon.

My niece asked me to make a card for her husband for his birthday. His absolute favorite holiday is Halloween. Luckily his birthday is close to Halloween too. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set along with the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Cute Halloween DSP to a Basic Gray card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered another panel of the Cute Halloween DSP to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On 2 strips of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I used some washi tape to block off the center of the sentiment since I only wanted the top and bottom. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From another panel of the Cute Halloween DSP I cut out 3 of the skeleton heads using my Paper Snips and adhered them to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered 2 strips of the Cute Halloween DSP to the top and bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Cute Halloween DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like today’s card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!1

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Snow Wonder

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. I hope your weekend is starting out fun. Mine is for sure. I’m so happy to be here in Blue Ridge Georgia with my stamping friends. The place we’re staying in is absolutely gorgeous out in the wilderness. The craft room is just wonderful. I’d love to have something like this at home, I’d be in heaven.

Gifts from Amy and Mary

One of the best parts of this retreat, other than the company and crafting of course, is that I don’t have to do a thing for a couple days. No cleaning, cooking or driving anyone around YAY!!! James is doing it all for us and he is an amazing cook. Here’s our first meal here ending with an amazing dessert.

Beef Lasagna, Roasted Broccoli, Balsamic-Glazed Green Beans & Mushroom & Cinnamon-Maple Squash
Salad with all the fixings
Chocolate Lava Cake w/ Vanilla Ice Cream

Today’s card is another card we made last weekend at our quarterly in per team meeting. This one was designed by our wonderful team leader Amy Koenders. I always love her style. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder Cling Stamp Set for my card today. I didn’t have a chance to finish my card at the meeting and I didn’t have the stamp set everyone else used, so I picked my own sentiments from a set that I had.

I started by embossing a small panel of Basic White cardstock using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered embossed panel next to the sentiment using Stampin’ Seal.

On another panel of Basic White cardstock using the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the holly leaf image in Soft Succulent Ink, the pine bough and sprig images in Evening Evergreen Ink, the berry stem image in Soft Suede Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I arranged the die cut pieces the way I wanted them on the embossed panel adhering them with Glue Dots. I tied a bow using the Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic Ribbon and adhered it on top of the small collage using a Glue Dot. I tucked a few of the Gold Holly Leaves under the bow using Glue Dots. I added a few Gold Gilded Gems to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set on a Basic White panel. I stamped the holly leaves from the Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the holly leaves from the Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like the card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? By the time you are reading this I will be in the air flying to Georgia for our retreat (hopefully). I can’t wait to get there to stamp, eat and laugh with friends all weekend long.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. A couple weeks ago I told you I was going to a Sunflower Maze. I did go and it was amazing. That is where some of my inspiration for my card today came from. I’ve shared a few pictures below of our day at the maze. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by cutting my Night of Navy card base. I cut the front panel at the 2 3/4″ mark to the outside edge. I then cut on the 4 1/4″ score line up from the 2 3/4″ cut line. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and the bouquet from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the Basic White panel. I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the small sunflower image out using my Sunflower Dies and the flowerpot image using my Perfect Plants Dies. I fussy cut the sunflower bouquet using my Paper Snips. I cut a few sprigs from the Sunflower Dies from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock.

I fussy cut one of the flowerpot images from a panel of the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP using my Paper Snips. I adhered the Soft Succulent sprigs to the back of the flowerpot using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sunflower bouquet to the front of the flowerpot using Glue Dots then adhered the arrangement to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside on a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink. I cut the panel at 2 1/2″ and fussy cut around the stem using my Paper Snips. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the top of a Cinnamon Cider mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel with the stem to the bottom of the Cinnamon Cider mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the DSP panel. I adhered the small sunflower die to the top of the stem using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the die cut flowerpot to the bottom of the stem using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and colored it in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Meadow for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Bundle along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large cone flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Cinnamon Cider, Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Harvest Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the Basic White panel and punched it our using the Tailored Tag Punch. After I punched the sentiment, I stamped the small flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off 3 times, over the sentiment. I cut the branch die from the Harvest Dies from a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock.

I adhered a panel of the Cork Specialty Paper to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the branch die to the Cork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the cone flower and sentiment over the branch using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Host Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small floral image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampn’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image the same as I did for my card. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Here we are, halfway through the week again and on our way to the weekend. I can’t wait for the weekend to get here. I’m meeting up with some of my team members for a retreat in Georgia. I’m so looking forward to getting away and getting together with my team members and spending the weekend crafting, talking and laughing.

Today’s card is one that we made on Sunday at our quarterly team meeting. This beautiful card was designed by one of my team members Donna Leonard. She presented the card via Zoom and we were all able to stamp along with her. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Christmas To Remember Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock in Real Red Ink. On that same panel using the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the leaf image in Evening Evergreen Ink, the pine bough image twice in Soft Succulent Ink, the berries in Real Red Ink and the pinecone image first in Soft Suede Ink and the detailed image in Early Espresso Ink. I cut all the images out using the Seasonal Labels Dies.

I embossed a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock using the pine bough folder from the Wintery 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of the Painted Christmas DSP to the other side of the Cherry Cobbler mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of the Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic Ribbon around the layered panel and adhered in on the back of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.

I arranged the die cut pieces the way I wanted and adhered them using Glue Dots. I adhered the sentiment panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Gold Holly Leaves on the card front using Glue Dots. I cut the berry die apart by cutting the single berry off and adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set in Real Red Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the side of the panel and the berry image in Real Red Ink on the leaf image. I adhered a strip of the Painted Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of The Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf and berry images from the Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Real Red on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Painted Christmas DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Seasons of Fun for Amy’s Inkin Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Halloween Fun”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seasons of Fun Host Cling Stamp Set along with the Cute Halloween 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Cute Halloween DSP on a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon, which I colored using my Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker, around the layered panel and adhered it on the back with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the Halloween image from the Season of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather, Ivory, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Layered Circles Dies. I cut a scalloped circle from a panel of Basic Black cardstock using the Layered Circles Dies and adhered the artwork to it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. Using my Double Oval Punch I punched out the sentiment. I punched out a Basic Black scalloped oval using the Double Oval Punch and adhered the sentiment to it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from A Wish For Everything stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Cute Halloween DSP to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurposed Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the Halloween image from the Season of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in the same as on the card. I adhered a panel of Cute Halloween DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today, I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
