Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope your week is going well.  The weekend is coming up quickly and our first month of the new year is gone.

For my card today I CASE’d a card from my Upline Jaimie Babarczy.  You can see her card here.  This is another card we made at my workshop.  My stampers used the Lovely Lipstick Ink and cardstock. I changed mine a little and used Flirty Flamingo.  Take a look.

I started with a Crumb Cake card base and adhered a panel of the All My Love Designer Series Paper to the front using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the heart cluster from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely stamp set down both sides in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  Using my Big Shot, I cut out 2 of the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies in Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

I placed the 2 hearts on the artwork panel the way I thought I’d like them and stamped the Love You sentiment from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink inside the bottom heart.  I then adhered the hearts to the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to a Whisper White mat using Snail then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the heart cluster from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink, stamping off once, on a Whisper White panel.  I then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink over the hearts.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Snail then adhered it to the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  This was a very quick and easy card to make.  Happy stamping.

Stampin’ Up Amazing Life Birthday Card

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is your week going?  Hope you’re having a good one.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Amazing Life Stamp Set.  This is another card we made at my workshop.  I had different levels of stampers and everyone did an amazing job making it.  Take a look.

I started with a Pacific Point card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered a strip of Garden Impressions 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper down the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large sentiment from the Amazing Life stamp set in Pacific Point Ink.  I colored the image in using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I then took my Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker and edged the  artwork.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dot to the artwork.  I adhered the card front to a So Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Amazing Life stamp set in Pacific Point Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the scroll from the same stamp set above the sentiment in Mango Melody Ink, stamping off once.  I stamped just the top of the same scroll in the corners in Mango Melody Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the So Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the scroll from the Amazing Life stamp set in Mango Melody Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Garden Impressions 6 X 6 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 Humming Along

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How had your week started? Is anyone expecting snow today and tomorrow.  I think the storm is going to miss us again.

For today’s card I used the new Stampin’ Up Humming Along Stamp Set and some of the beautiful new Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper. Take a look.

I started with a Mossy Meadow card front and adhered a piece of Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper to it using Snail.  I then took a strip of Petal Pink cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Petal Pink strip on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a piece of the gorgeous Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a panel of Whisper White cardstock using a tiny bit of Snail just in the corners.  I did this because the piece I picked was Vellum and sometimes adhesive shows through it.  I then adhered the mounted DSP to a Mossy Meadow mat using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Hibiscus image from the Stampin’ Up Humming Along Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the hibiscus out using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies with my Big Shot.   I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow made from the Silver and Petal Pink Bakers Twine and added it to the flower stem with a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the hibiscus image from the Humming Along stamp set in Petal Pink Ink, stamping off once, to a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set over the hibiscus in Fresh Fig Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Snail then adhered it to the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the hibiscus from the Humming Along stamp set in Fresh Fig Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the hibiscus in the same way I did for the card front.  I adhered a piece of Tranquil Textures 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 Bright Wishes for Color Throwdown

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  Did anyone do anything interesting or fun?

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Bright Wishes Stamp Set and I joined in with the Color Throwdown Color Challenge #527.

Be sure to stop by the Color Throwdown and see what everyone has made and to play along. Here are their colors.  I just love Navy Blue and Green together.

I started with a piece of Vellum cardstock and stamped the Well from the Bright Wishes stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I colored the image in with my Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Smoky Slate and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I did the coloring on the back of the Vellum, not on the embossed side.  Using my Big Shot, I cut the image out with my Rectangle Stitched  Framelits Dies.  I also cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock the same size as the rectangle to adhere under the Vellum image.

I cut a rectangle frame out in Old Olive cardstock using the same size framelit that I cut the Vellum image.  I adhered the Vellum image to the Very Vanilla cardstock using small spots of Snail so that you wouldn’t see it.  I adhered the Very Vanilla artwork and the Old Olive frame to a Night of Navy card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Old Olive Linen Thread around the card front.  I made a bow separately and adhered it to the card front on the Linen Thread with a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the Well from the Bright Wishes stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the Well.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail then adhered it to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the Well image from the Bright Wishes stamp set on the front of the envelope and colored it in the same as I did for the card front.  It came out a little darker since I colored the card front on the backside of the Vellum.

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

Stampin’ Up Colorful Seasons Quick and Easy Card

Good Friday morning my stamping friends.  How was your week?  Are you ready for the weekend?  Have you made some fun plans?

For today’s card I joined in with 2 challenges.   The first one is What Will You Stamp Challenge #203.  This was a new one for me.  They give you a stamp set and you come up with something.  Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made at What Will You Stamp and to play along.  Here is their challenge.

The other challenge I joined in with is Colour and Sketches #305.  Stop by to see what everyone has made at Colour and Sketches and to play along with them .. Here is their sketch.

I’ve made a very clean and simple card today for the 2 challenges.  I don’t usually do simple, but every once in a while I like to add one in.  Take a look.
I started by cutting 2 mats in Balmy Blue cardstock.  On the larger mat I adhered a piece of Subtles 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in Balmy Blue using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Colorful Seasons stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink.  I adhered the stamped panel to the smaller Balmy Blue mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to the Night of Navy card base,  using Stampin’ Dimensionals, over lapping the matted DSP panel.

I cut one of the snowflakes from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies using my Big Shot out of a piece of Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  I adhered the snowflake to the over lapped matted panels using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the larger snowflake from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink, stamping off once, across a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the snowflakes.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the smaller snowflake from the Colorful Seasons stamp set across the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of the Subtles 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Magical Mermaid

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers. We’ve made it over the half way point of the week.  Can you believe it’s the end of January already?  This is the quickest January has ever gone by for me.  Anyone making plans for the weekend?

For today’s card I was able to join in with 3 challenges.  The first is Fab Friday Sketch Challenge # 155.  Be sure to stop by Fab Friday and see all the amazing projects and to play along.  Here is their sketch.

The next one I played along with is “Just Us Girls” Color Challenge #471.  Be sure to stop by “Just Us Girls” to play along and see all the beautiful projects made.  Here are their colors.

The last one I played along with is TGIF Inspiration Challenge # 195.  You want to be sure to stop by TGIF to see how everyone was inspired and to play along with them. Here is their Inspiration.

Here is what I came up with for all 3 challenges.  Take a look.

I started with a Balmy Blue card front and stamped the sand/shells in Sahara Sand Ink and the bubbles In Balmy Blue Ink from the Stampin’ Up Magical Mermaid stamp set on it.  I then took a panel of Soft Sea Foam and stamped the seaweed multiple times, using my Stamparatus, across it.  I colored some of the seaweed in with my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Marker.  I then ran it through my Big Shot using the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue I adhered the Soft Sea Foam panel to the card front.

On a piece of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the mermaid from the Magical Mermaid stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the mermaid in using my Light Calypso Coral, Light Highland Heather, Ivory, Light Mint Macaron, Light Pool Party and Light Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  The Shimmery White paper gave the mermaid a really pretty shimmer after it was colored.  I fussy cut the mermaid and  adhered her to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Magical Mermaid stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink.  Using my Triple Banner Punch I made it into a banner and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sand/shells from the Magical Mermaid stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the seaweed from the same stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on both sides of the panel.  I stamped the mermaid silhouette in Highland Heather Ink stamping off twice to get a light image.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink over the mermaid silhouette.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the mermaid from the Magical Mermaid stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored her in the same as I did for the card.  I stamped the mermaid silhouette on the envelope flap in Highland Heather Ink stamping off twice then stamped the bubbles in Balmy Blue Ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card today and will give it a try.  This is a great birthday card for a little girl.  Happy Stamping.

I started with a Petal Pink card front and using my Big Shot I embossed it with my Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I then cut out the largest flourish from the Flourish Thinlits Dies in Soft Sea Foam cardstock 2 times.  I adhered the one flourish on top of the second to make it a little thicker.  I sponged the die cut with my Soft Sea Foam Ink then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added some Wink Of Stella to the flowers on the die cut.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Accented Blooms stamp set in So Saffron Ink.  I cut the strip into a banner using my Triple Banner Punch and sponged the edges with the So Saffron Ink.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few So Saffron Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to the card front and the banner.  I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Love What You Do stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the bottom with one of the floral images from the same stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink and colored the little flowers in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I finished my card off by decorating a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped one of the floral images from the Love What You Do stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the envelope front and flap.  I colored the flowers in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker.
