Stampin’ Up Half Full Floating Card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

 

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop. If you have started with me or come from  Jaimie Babarcay’s gorgeous project, welcome. The second Tuesday of every month the team does a blog hop with a different theme each month.  This months Theme is ‘CELEBRATE’. We can interpret this any way we want.  We have a group of amazing stampers, so be sure to hop around to see all the beautiful projects everyone has made.

Here’s mine for today’s blog hop.  Take a look.

I started with a Merry Merlot card base.  I cut the front leaving 2 1/2″ from the center score line.  I then cut the remaining piece to 1 1/2″.  I stamped the top with the Cheer sentiment from Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Versamark Ink and sprinkled it immediately with my Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the Holiday out from the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies using my Big Shot from a piece of Copper Foil Sheet and adhered it above the Cheer using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The Merry Christmas To All Bundle is available at a 10% discount only until January 2, 2019.  After that the stamp set and Thinlits Dies will be available separately at the non-discounted price.  If you were thinking about getting this set, now would be the perfect time when you can save an extra 10%.

I stamped the set of wine glasses from the Half Full stamp set in Stazon Ink on a small piece of Window Sheet.  I colored the wine glasses in using my Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered the Window Sheet to the inside of the top section of the card base  using Snail.   I then adhered the smaller piece of the card front to the bottom section of the Window Sheet, again using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of 5/8″ Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon around the bottom section and tied a knot and to hold it in place I added a Glue Dot under the knot.

On a small piece of Shimmery White cardstock, I stamped the wine bottle from the Half Full stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the bottle and the cap in using my Aqua Painter and So Saffron and Soft Suede Inks.  I adhered the bottle to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals connecting the top and bottom of the card base.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the top and bottom.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiments from the Half Full stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink.  I made sure that I stamped above and below the Window Sheet so that it didn’t show through where the wine glasses were.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the wine bottle and wine glasses from the Half Full stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope and the wine glasses on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Now you can either hit the Next or Previous to hop around to see all the other amazing projects made.  You can also click on each name to see what everyone has made.  Happy Hopping!

Stampin’ Up Cable Knit Spirited Snowmen

Good Monday morning my Stamping Friends.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  These weekends seem to go by way too fast and the week days seem to linger on, don’t you think?

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Spirited Snowmen stamp set that will soon be retiring.  I absolutely love all the images in this set.  If this is a set you’ve been wanting, I’d grab it while you can.

I started with a Very Vanilla card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  On a smaller piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the Snowmen image from the Spirited Snowmen stamp set (soon to be retired), in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the Snowflakes from the same stamp set in Versamark Ink all around the snowmen and sprinkled them with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I colored the snowmen in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Shaded Spruce and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered some Copper Metallic Thread to the back of the artwork then adhered the artwork panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside Very Vanilla panel I stamped the snowmen from Spirited Snowmen stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off 3 times, in the center of the panel.  I stamped the sentiment from Timeless Tidings stamp set in Early Espresso Ink over the snowmen image.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the Snowmen from Spirited Snowmen stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the Holly & Berry from the same stamp set on the envelope flap and colored them in using my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up Sitting Pretty Christmas Card

Good Friday morning my stamping friends.  Have you had a productive week?  Any fun plans for the weekend? Whatever you do, have fun and make the best of it.

One of my amazing Up-lines sent me a new bundle yesterday.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Sitting Pretty Bundle.  As soon as I got it I had to make a card with it and had a Christmas card in mind that I wanted to create.  Take a look.

I started with a card front of Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.  I knew I wanted to stamp a Christmas tree on the side, but after going through all my stamp set I didn’t have even one set with a Christmas tree.  I had to compromise and use the pine tree from Lovely As A Tree stamp set, so I stamped it in Shaded Spruce Ink on the right side of the DSP.  I know, it’s not quite a Christmas tree, almost a Charlie Brown tree, but I made the best of it.  I added some Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to make it look like it had lights.  I adhered the card front to a Shaded Spruce mat using Snail.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the bench from the Sitting Pretty stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  Using my Big Shot I cut out the bench from the Pretty Park Framelits Dies.  I stamped the dog from the Sitting Pretty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and Crumb Cake Ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the dog out using my Big Shot and the Pretty Park Framelits Dies.  I adhered the dog to the embossed bench using Stampin’ Dimensionals then adhered the bench to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut the bow on the dog out from the Alpine Sports Thinlits Dies in Real Red cardstock and adhered it to the dog using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the presents from the Alpine Adventures stamp set in Balmy Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Old Olive and Real Red Inks.  I cut 2 of the presents out using the Alpine Sports Thinlits Dies with my Big Shot and the other 3 presents I fussy cut using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the presents using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals under the tree.  I stamped the Christmas Greetings sentiment from the Alpine Adventures stamp set in Versamark Ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I made it into a banner using my Banner Triple Punch and edged it using my Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker.  I wrapped a small piece of Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon on the top left corner.  I adhered the banner just under the ribbon using Snail.  I adhered the matted card front to a Merry Merlot card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the dog in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the presents from Alpine Adventures stamp set in Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Old Olive and Real Red Inks next to the dog.  I stamped the sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the pine tree from Lovely As A Tree stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the front right of the envelope and the dog from the Sitting Pretty stamp set on left side using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and Crumb Cake Ink.  I adhered a piece of Festive Farmhouse DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you enjoyed my card.  I know I used a lot more products then I usually do, but I couldn’t find everything I wanted to use in 1 or 2 sets.

There are a few things I used in my card today that are being retired.  The Alpine Adventures Stamp Set, Alpine Sports Thinlits Dies, Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon.  If you like and of these products I’d grab them while you can.  Things are going fast.

Hope you all have a great weekend!  Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up Christmas Pines Detailed Baubles For Global Design

Good Thursday morning everyone. Another week almost over. Anyone making plans for the weekend? Have you all gotten your shopping done? I sure haven’t.

For today’s card I joined in with the Global Design Project #167.  Be sure to stop by Global Design to play along and see what everyone has made.  This week was a Theme Challenge.

Here’s my card for the challenge.  Take a look.

I started with a Whisper White card front and stamped the pines from Christmas Pines stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the bottom and quickly sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  Using my Big Shot I cut the round ornament from Detailed Baubles Thinlits Dies in Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  If you like this Thinlit Die set, I’d head over to my online store ASAP.  It’s available at a discounted price right now along with many other items that are being retired.

I cut a circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies from a piece of Gold Foil Sheet.  I adhered the Detailed Baubles ornament to the Gold Foil circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I tied a piece of Tranquil Tide Bakers Twine from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit, (also discounted in my online store), around the top of the ornament and made a double bow.  I adhered it to one of the pines using a Glue Dot.

I adhered the ornament to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 3 of the Tranquil Tide Share What You Love Artisan Pearls around the ornament.  I adhered the card front to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail then adhered it to a Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the pines from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink, stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the pines from Christmas Pines stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink on the front left and the flap of a Medium Whisper White Envelope.

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

Stampin’ Up Amazing Life Sneak Peak

Good Wednesday morning everyone.  Hope your having a wonderful week so far.

I’ve got another sneak peak for you from the upcoming 2019 Occasions Catalog.  I used the Stampin’ Up Amazing Life stamp set and the  new Gingham Gala 6X6 Designer Series Paper which will be available January 3, 2019.  Take a look.

I started with a Whisper White panel and stamped the cake from Amazing Life stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the bottom.  I stamped the sentiment from the same set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of the panel.  I colored the word cake in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker and I colored the candle flame in using my Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write Marker.  I then stamped the border and dots from the same stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the Whisper White panel.

I adhered the Whisper White panel to a piece of Highland Heather Gingham Gala 6X6 Designer Series Paper using Snail.  This new paper is so pretty.  There is large Gingham on one side and small Gingham on the other in 5 different colors.  This was a must have when I saw it.

I adhered the artwork to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail and then adhered it to a Highland Heather card base, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, which I had stamped with the flower image from the Amazing Life stamp set in Highland Heather Ink.

On the inside I stamped the cake image from Amazing Life stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, stamping off once, in the center of a Whisper White Panel.  I stamped the Happy Birthday in Gorgeous Grape Ink over the middle of the cake.  I stamped one of the scrolls from the same stamp set in Granny Apple Green toward the top of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cake image from the Amazing Life stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the bottom left front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Gingham Gala 6X6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card. This is just one of the wonderful new sets that will be available January 3, 2019.

Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds Sneak Peak

Good Tuesday morning everyone.  Hope your week is starting off great.

I’ve got a sneak peak for you today from the up coming 2019 Occasions Catalog.  I’ve used the Stampin’ Up Beauty Abound Bundle for my card. Take a look.

I started with a Granny Apple Green card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Layering Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Again using my Big Shot, I cut the Butterflies from the upcoming Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies, available January 3, 2019, from Basic Black cardstock.  I adhered the butterflies to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Hello from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Highland Heather Ink.  I bannered the sentiment and adhered it to the right side of the butterflies using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then adhered it to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the butterfly.

On the inside I stamped the splatter image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set multiple times in the center of a Whisper White panel in Highland Heather Ink, stamping off once each time.  I then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink over the splatter image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I adhered it to the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the front left of the envelope.  I stamped the butterfly image from the same set in Highland Heather Ink by the flowers and on the back envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked the sneak peak.  This bundle will be available January 3, 2019.  Purchasing this bundle will also allow you to pick a free product from the Sale-A-Bration catalog which starts on January 3, 2019 and runs until March 31, 2019.  Who doesn’t like free products???  I’ll be posting more sneak peaks of the products coming in the new Occasions Catalog in the next few weeks.  Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up Timeless Tidings For Freshly Made Sketches #365

Good Monday morning everyone.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready for another week.

I played along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #365 for today’s card. Be sure to visit the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see all the beautiful projects made. Here is the sketch I worked from.

Here is what I came up with for the challenge. Take a look

I started with a piece of Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Very Vanilla mat using Snail.  I then adhered it onto a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I took a smaller piece of the Festive Farmhouse DSP and adhered it to a Mossy Meadow mat using Snail.  On a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I first stamped the tree from the Stampin’ Up Timeless Tidings stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink, stamping off 3 times.  I then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink over the tree.  I adhered it to a Mossy Meadow mat using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Cherry Cobbler cotton twine from the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine pack around the artwork and tied a bow.  I adhered the matted DSP to the bottom right of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then adhered the matted artwork to the top left card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels onto the card front.

 On the inside on a Very Vanilla panel I stamped the tree from the Timeless Tidings stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink stamping off 3 times, across the center.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set over the trees in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered the panel to the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the tree from the Timeless Tidings stamp set across the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Festive Farmhouse DSP to the envelope flap.

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