Stampin’ Up! Peace and Joy for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Hope you are all doing well.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, 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 our sketch for this week.

Here is my card using this sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Peace & Joy Bundle for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I cut the ‘Joy’ sentiment out using my Joy Dies cutting the thin word from a panel of Copper Foil, the mat from a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and the bubble mat from a panel of Night of Navy cardstock. I adhered the Copper word to the Very Vanilla mat using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the Night of Navy bubble mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered it to the stitched panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the other 2 sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Peace & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink on a Very Vanilla panel and fussy cut them using my Paper Snips. I adhered them above and below the ‘Joy’ using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of Copper Foil into a banner using my Triple Banner Punch and embossed it using my Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder. I adhered the banner to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the artwork to the card front, over the banner, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Star Designer Elements to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the bough image from the Peace & Joy stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the sides of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I stamped the bough image from the Peace & Joy stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.

I adhered a panel of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

While constructing the new online store, Stampin’ Up! was required to temporarily suspend the offering of past kits and refills from Paper Pumpkin.  The online store functionality that allows them to offer these products is nearly ready to launch.  Paper Pumpkin Past Kits and Refills will be available once again beginning 26 October!!

On 26 October, available products will include the September Refills and October Refills!  Yay!  The cute fall treat boxes and the Christmas card kit refills will be there!  These products will only be available while supplies last and require a Paper Pumpkin subscription to order.

Once the Paper Pumpkin Past Kits and Refills have been made available again, Stampin’ Up! will continue to release new past kit and refill products each month as inventory and demand allow.  If you’re interested in purchasing these products, they’re typically released—if available—on the 4th Monday of each month.  So keep checking the online store for more refills and past kits!
