Stampin’ Up! Life is Beautiful for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have something different, we have a Theme challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the Theme we had to work from.

Here’s what I came up with.

My design is from Inspire. Create. Sketch Challenge #075.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered another panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to a Very Vanilla mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Life is Beautiful Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the bird house image from the Life is Beautiful stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, hanging from the bottom branch.  I stamped the leaf image from the Life is Beautiful stamp set in Bumblebee Ink and Cajun Craze Inks on the tree branches.  I cut the image out using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the largest scallop circle from the Layering Circles Dies out of a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I adhered the artwork to the scallop circle mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed a panel of Early Espresso cardstock using the Pinewood Plank 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the matted artwork to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the Early Espresso panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow using the 1/4″ Bumblebee Ribbon 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon and adhered it to the artwork using a Glue Dot.  I stamped the sentiment from the Life is Beautiful stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Life is Beautiful stamp set in the center of Very Vanilla panel in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Life is Beautiful stamp set in Bumblebee and Cajun Craze Inks on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Life is Beautiful stamp set in Bumblebee and Cajun Craze Inks on the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty 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 Partial Die Cut

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re halfway through the week and on the downhill to the weekend.  Hope you are starting to make some plans for something fun.  We had an awesome time at the beach yesterday.  The water was beautiful, it was a bit hazy, but still a wonderful day.  I went for my usual walk along the water looking for shells and sea glass.  Our day got cut a little short by a thunderstorm that came rolling in really fast.  Everyone got called out of the water as soon as the lightening and thunder started.  It was a great day spent with my daughter, nephew, niece and her 2 boys.

For today I tried something new called the Partial Die Cut card.  I’m really liking this and can’t wait to try it again with different dies.  Here’s my card for today.

I played along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #284.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Bumblebee cardstock to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal.  On the Bumblebee card base I stamped the large sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I placed the matted panel over part of the sunflower and lined up the die from the Sunflower Dies.  I tacked it on the panel, so it wouldn’t move, using washi tape.  I cut the 1/2 of sunflower out of the panel, then embossed the panel using my Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder.

I adhered a strip of the Flowers For Every Season Designer Series paper to the left side of the card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I cut the sentiment into a banner using the Triple Banner Punch.  I cut a strip of Just Jade cardstock into a banner using the Triple Banner Punch and adhered the sentiment to it using Stampin’ Seal.  I cut the banner down to 3 1/2″.

I adhered the matted embossed panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, making sure the sunflower lined up with the die cut.  I adhered the sentiment banner to the top of the panel using Stampin Dimensionals.  I added a few Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of the Flowers For Every Season DSP to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped part of the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Flowers For Every Season 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! Gather Together 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 Amy Koenders blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Fall Frenzy”.  We can interpret this however we want.  I decided to use non-traditional colors for my card today.  I saw these colors together with some fall decorations and loved it.  Here’s my card.

I started by embossing the top of a Sahara Sand card front using the Stitched Leaves Dies.  I adhered the card front to a Brass Foil Sheet mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Forever Flourishing Dies I cut panels of Brass Foil Sheet, Brushed Metallic Sheet, Pretty Peacock & Seaside Spray using different dies.  Using the Stitched Leaves Dies and Nature’s Roots Dies I cut leaves out of a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock.  I stamped the 2 pumpkin images from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie Ink on a panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I cut the pumpkins out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.

I arranged the leaves and pumpkins the way I wanted them on my Silicone Sheet and adhered them together using Glue Dots, Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the pumpkins with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the collage to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a thin strip of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the top center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 2 pumpkin images from the Gather Together stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Crumb Cake and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Are you all ready to tackle another week?  Tomorrow is a very exciting day for me.  It’s the day we demonstrators get to register for our OnStage event and I’m suppose to be heading to the beach for the day.  One of the greatest perks of being a demonstrator is that we get to attend these conventions, see new items coming, get the catalog early,  have a wonderful prize patrol and best of all get to spend time with our fellow demonstrators. This year will be a little different since they are doing everything virtually.  It will still be fun I’m sure.  I wish I had a larger house, I’d have my local team members over and we could all attend virtually together.  I’m going to miss getting together with my team, it’s such an awesome group of people.

For today I’ve made you a masculine card using the set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #447.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Mossy Meadow card front using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered a panel of the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Very Vanilla mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the matted panel to the embossed card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I cut the sentiment out using one of the squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to a Brass Foil Sheet mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a piece of the Early Espresso 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim to the card front using a couple Glue Dots.  I adhered the matted sentiment over the trim using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful World stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the quill image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink above the sentiment.  I stamped the ink pot image from the Beautiful World stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the quill and ink pot images from the Beautiful World stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the World of Good 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder Very Merry

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  Did anyone do anything fun yesterday?  Things have cooled down here a bit, it’s only been in the 80’s, so it’s a little easier to get things outside done.

I have another Christmas card for you today and I played with another new bundle for using some non-traditional colors.  Here’s my card for today.

My sketch is from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #380.  Those of you that know me, knot that I just love layering and this design was perfect for me.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #382.  I love taking non-traditional Christmas colors and trying to make a card with them. Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of the Wonder of the Season Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Garden Green card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a panel of Blushing Bride Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a panel of ‘Tis The Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Garden Green Mat.  I embossed a small panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Garden Green mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the snowman image from the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the holly leave on the hat in using my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  I colored the scarf, hat and berries on the holly in using my Terracotta Tile Stampin’ Write Marker.   I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut it out using the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to a Garden Green mat that I cut out using the smallest scallop oval from the Layering Ovals Dies.

I adhered the matted Blushing Bride panel to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the ‘Tis The Season DSP panel over the 1st panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I adhered the matted embossed panel on top of the other 2 using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the snowman to the top of the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the sentiment overlapping the snowman and DSP panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink, stamping off once, on the corners of the panel and on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the snowman image from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Garden Green and Terracotta Tile Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered a panel of ‘Tis The Season 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! Warm and Toasty Cool Yule

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your weekend started off?  I’m working today, but I have off tomorrow.  I’m not sure what we are doing tomorrow, if anything.

I’m on a roll with Christmas cards now.  I need to get 50 done by the beginning of December.  I figured as long as I try to get 3-5 done a week I should be good.  Here’s today’s card.

My design is from Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #468.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, which I made into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch, to the left side using Stampin’ Seal.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the adorable deer image from the Stampin’ Up! Warm & Toasty Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Warm & Toasty stamp set above the deer in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the top of a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Delightful Tag Topper Punch and embossed the panel using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder.  I adhered the artwork to the tag using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I added a piece of the Gold Metallic Trim, form the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack, to the top of the tag and frayed it.  I adhered the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP to the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the deer image from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Plaid Tidings 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! Snowflake Wishes for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s week?  Does anyone have plans for the weekend?  I know some are still without power after the hurricane on Tuesday here and are not expecting it back until next week.  I’m hoping that you get power back sooner than expected.  My heart goes out to you.

I have a drapery card for you today. I have made a diagram for you that I attached below explaining how to make the folded panel.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by stamping a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock with the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I embossed the panel using the new Winter Snow Embossing Folder.  I cut and scored a 4″ X 11 1/2″ panel of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper as in the diagram below.

I adhered the folded panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of 1/4″ Snowflake Splendor Ribbon around the card front and tied a small bow.  I tacked the bow in place using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Adhesive-Backed Snowflakes to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off once, above the sentiment.  I adhered a strip of Snowflake Splendor DSP to the side of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set along the bottom front of the envelope in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I adhered a panel of Snowflake Splendor 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! Beautiful Autumn for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Eva, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here is my card for today using this sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I wrapped a piece of the Mint Macaron 1/2″ Basket Weave Ribbon, from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, around the panel and tied a knot.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using one of the ovals from the Layering Ovals Dies.  I cut a label from panel of Early Espresso cardstock using the Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered the oval to the center using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped 6 leaves and 4 acorns from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set .  I stamped the acorn outline images in Early Espresso Ink, the acorn top in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off once, and the acorn bottom in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the leaf outline images in Cajun Craze Ink and the inside of the leaves in Cajun Craze Ink, stamped off once.  I punched all the leaves and acorns out using the Autumn Punch Pack.  I adhered the leaves and acorns to the sentiment using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered the leaves and acorns that I stamped and punched from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set on either side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front in Cajun Craze Ink and the inside of the leaves in Cajun Craze Ink stamped off once.  I adhered a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Gnome for the Holidays

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week and before you know it the weekend will be here.  I got a lot done my couple days off.  I did a lot of running around on Monday and I just stayed put yesterday.

For today I made you my first Christmas card of the season.  I was so excited to play with this set, I think it is so cute.  Here is my card for today.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Get Sketchy Challenge #236.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping my artwork on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the gnome and tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Gnome for the Holidays Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Gray Granite, Ivory, Just Jade, Night of Navy, Real Red, Shaded Spruce, Smoky Slate and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Gnome for the Holidays stamp set on the top of the Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the artwork to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a panel of ‘Tis The Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Garden Green card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered 2 more panels of ‘Tis The Season 6 X 6 DSP to Real Red mats using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the long matted DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I then adhered the smaller matted DSP on top of the long one using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the matted artwork to the top of the 2 matted DSP panels using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gnome for the Holidays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped 2 of the gnome images from the Gnome for the Holidays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Gray Granite, Ivory, Just Jade, Night of Navy, Real Red & Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tree and gnome images from the Gnome for the Holidays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored the images in with my Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of ‘Tis The Season 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!!

I’m cleaning my shelves and drawers out to make room for lots of new goodie.  I have my list right HERE and I’m trying to keep it up to date.   Check it out and let me know if there is anything you’d like to get.  If you are looking for something and don’t see it on the list, drop me a line and I will look through my stash to see if I missed it.  I have lots of older DSP too that I don’t have listed if there is any that you are looking for.
