Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Wreaths

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun or exciting?  I worked all day on Saturday, but Sunday was our in person Team Meeting.  I had fun catching up with friends and crafting together.

For today’s card I made a pretty quick and easy one for you.  Here’s my card.

I played along with a couple challenges again.  I joined in with the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #338.  There’s is a sketch challenge and here’s their sketch.

Next I played along with The Color Throwdown Color Challenge #560.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a Soft Suede card front using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the wreath image from the Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Wreaths Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of the wreath.  I fussy cut the wreath out using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a strip of So Saffron and Old Olive card stock below the wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a small bow made from the Linen Thread to the bottom of the wreath using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink to the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the detailed leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in 2 of the corners of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the leaves in using my Old Olive and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then adhered it to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the detailed leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and flap.  I colored the leaves in using my Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and So Saffron 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 Harvest Hellos Fall Birthday Card for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday blog.  It’s Friday the 13th, there’s a full moon and it’s a harvest moon tonight.  I love watching the full moon rise at night, I’m hoping it will be a nice clear night to see it.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is here already, I hope you have some fun plans.  We’re at apple picking season here, that’s always a lot of fun.

For today’s card I made a Dutch Door Card using multiple fall related stamp sets.  Here’s my card.

I played along with the Paper Players Color Challenge #458.  Here are their colors.

I started by putting together my card base.  I scored the 4 1/8″ X 8 3/4″ panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock at 5 1/2″ and folded it.  I scored the 8 1/2″ X 2 1/4″ panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″ and folded it on the score lines.  I adhered the larger card base to the smaller card base so that the 2 folded  sides would close over the bottom of the larger card base using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to the top portion of the card base using Snail.  I then adhered the 2 smaller panels of Come To Gather DSP to the outside  bottom portion of the card base to the edges so that they met in the middle and there was no border using Snail..

I cut out 3 Merry Merlot leaves using the Seasonal Layers Dies.  I cut out 2 more leaves, one in Cajun Craze and the other in Pretty Peacock using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Stampn’ Up Harvest Hellos Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I punched the pumpkin out using the Apple Builder Punch.  I also punched the stem out of a tiny scrap of Early Espresso cardstock and adhered it to the pumpkin using a Glue Dot.  I cut out the ‘Birthday Wishes’ sentiment from the Well Written Dies in Merry Merlot cardstock.

I adhered a Whisper White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Snail.  I adhered the pumpkin to the Whisper White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the leaves under the pumpkin using Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of the Whisper White panel using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I adhered the artwork to the top portion of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered 2 of the Merry Merlot leaves to the bottom ‘Doors’ of the card base using Glue Dots.  You can also see in the picture above how I adhered the DSP to the ‘doors’ of the card, with only leaving a border on 3 sides.

On the inside I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on top of the leaf.  I stamped the 2 pumpkin images from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on a small Whisper White panel.  I colored the pumpkins in using my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut them out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I adhered the to the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front in Cajun Craze, Pretty Peacock and Merry Merlot Inks.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week been?  The weekend is right around the corner, I hope you are starting to make some fun plans.

For today I have a quick and easy card for you, despite the layers.  These cards unfortunately I always like to have on hand.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with a few challenges today.  I joined in with TGIF Color Challenge #228.  Here are their colors.

I played along with Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #522.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Inspire. Create. Theme Challenge #051.  Here is their theme.

I adhered a panel of Merry Merlot Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Very Vanilla mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the scroll image from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the top and bottom of the panel.  I adhered the sentiment panel to a Very Vanilla mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored 2 Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blend Marker and adhered them to the scroll image.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the scroll images from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink around the Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Merry Merlot Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap and the front of the envelope.

Stampin’ Up Winter Woods Friendly Silhouette Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s wee been going?  We’re already halfway through.  Did you all have a chance to hop around yesterday with Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop and see all the beautiful projects my team members made? If not, you can still go back to yesterday’s blog and hop around.

For today’s card I did a technique that I haven’t done before (at least I don’t think I have.  I used my Sponge Brayer to make the background on my card.  I usually do the sponging technique using my Stamping Sponges, but I thought I’d try something new.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with a couple challenges today.  1st off I joined in with As You See It Challenge #208.  Their challenge is a Night Glow Color Challenge.  Here are their colors.

Nest I played along with Fab Friday Challenge #171.  Here is their sketch

I also played along with Always Fun Challenge #127.  They have a Theme challenge this week.  Their theme is “Create a Scene”.

I started by using my Sponge Brayer and adding color slowly to a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I started with the bottom and added Mango Melody Ink.  I worked my way up and next used Coastal Cabana Ink.  On the top of the panel I used my Sponge Brayer with Pretty Peacock Ink.  After I was done adding the amount of color that I wanted, I stamped the multiple tree image from the Stampin’ Up Winter Woods Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the panel.

I cut 2 of the trees out from the In The Woods Dies from Basic Black cardstock and adhered them to either side of my card front using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I then cut the grassy cat tail die from the Friendly Silhouettes Dies out of Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to my card front using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I adhered the card front to a Coastal Cabana mat using Snail

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a thin Mango Melody strip of cardstock using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Coastal Cabana Glimmer Enamel Dot to the sentiment.  I made a tiny bow from the Pretty Peacock/Old Olive 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Pretty Peacock card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on either side of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set in the center of the panel in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set on either side of the envelope front and on the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up Birds of a Feather for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop.

If you’ve hopped over from Mary Deatherage’s blog, welcome.  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects.   The 2nd Tuesday of each month this wonderful team puts together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some awesome projects.  This months theme is ‘Halloween’.  We can interpret this however we would like.  Those of you that know me, know that I’m not a big Halloween fan, but I have to admit I had a lot of fun with this one.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Terracotta Tile cardstock to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I adhered the 2 panels of  Monster Bash Designer Series Paper to Basic Black mats using Snail.  I adhered the 2 matted DSP’s to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the pirate duck image from the Stampin’ Up Birds of a Feather Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Light Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  I cut a Basic Black scalloped circle out using the Layering Circles Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the scalloped circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the sentiment to the center of the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a couple of the Rhinestone Basic Jewels that I colored with my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered the card front to a Crushed Curry card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered 2 strips of Monster Bash DSP to the top and bottom of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Crushed Curry card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the pirate duck from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of the Monster Bash DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card. Now be sure to hit Previous to hop back to Mary Deatherage’s blog or hit Next to head over to Julie Johnson’s blog. You can also click on each of the names and hop around that way. Happy Hopping!!

Stampin’ Up Pressed Petals Thank You

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I had to work, my usual, but it was a beautiful weekend here.  I was able to get a nice walk in and enjoy the weather.  Leaves are starting to fall here, and I have to admit, I’m not ready yet.

For today I have a pretty quick and easy card for you where I let the Designer Series Paper do all the work for me.  I was inspired by a team member of mine, Shirley G., who made this card and I thought it would be perfect for my Stamp Camp class.  You can see her card here.   Here is my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail.  I cut the sentiment out of Mossy Meadow card stock using my Well Written Dies and adhered it to the center of the matted panel using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.

I adhered a panel of Rococo Rose and Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to a Mossy Meadow card base, both on angles going opposite ways, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a knot using my Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Lined Ribbon and adhered it to the bottom of the artwork using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Tp finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leafy image from the Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty 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. Tomorrow is Blog Hop Day, so try to stop by and hop around to see everyone’s projects. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Animal Outings for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  The weekend is here already, has anyone had a chance to make plans?  I feel like the weekend snuck up very quickly.  Gotta love these 4 day weeks.

For today’s card I was asked to make a baby shower card for a friend.  I had to put my thinking cap on for a bit to come up with an idea.  I don’t really have any ‘baby’ stamp sets, but then I remembered the one set that I have that would be perfect.  I made a ‘Z-Fold’ card for you, but my measurements are a little different than normal.  Here’s my card.

My card was able to join in with a few challenges today.  First off I played along with Global Design Project Color Challenge #205.  I thought these colors were perfect for a baby shower card (mom to be knows it’s a girl).  Here are their colors.

Next I played along with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #332.  With a little work I made this work as a fun fold.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #237.  They have a theme challenge and I thought how much more feminine could a baby shower card be.  Here is their challenge.

I started by stamping the momma kangaroo image from the Stampin’ Up Animal Outing Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Rococo Rose and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Animal Friends Dies.  I cut out a stitched square from Rococo Rose cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut out a scalloped square from So Saffron cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered the stitched square to the scalloped square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the kangaroo to the square using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of Rococo Rose card stock to the folded edge using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the folded edge using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on one half.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Rococo Rose Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I punched the sentiment out using the Classic Label Punch and I cut the one edge straight using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Glue Dot and Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I attached a small bow made from Whisper White Solid Bakers Twine with a Glue Dot.

I wrapped a piece of the Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon around the left side of the card.

On the inside I adhered a panel of the Mint Macaron Gingham from the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I adhered a Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I did not stamp a sentiment on the inside because my friend wants to write something herself.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the kangaroo image from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Rococo Rose and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of So Saffron Gingham from the Subtle 6 X 6 DSP on 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!!
