Stampin’ Up Meant To Be

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Happy 1st Day Of Spring!!!

There are less than 2 weeks left for Sale-A-Bration, yikes!  If there are still items you wanted to get, don’t wait.  Things are selling out.  They’ve added a 3rd release, you can see it below.

For today’s card I have a real quick and easy card for you.  Take a look.

I started by cutting the rectangles.  I used the 3 middle Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies along with my Big Shot and cut the largest in Lovely Lipstick cardstock, the middle one in Flirty Flamingo cardstock and the smallest one in All My Love Designer Series Paper.  Once I cut them out I layered them inside one another.

As you can see, this is a very flat card since they are inside and not layered on top of one another.  I adhered the rectangles to a Whisper White card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I just love how the stitching looks on all the rectangles.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Meant To Be Stamp Set in Versamark Ink and immediately sprinkled it with my Lovely Lipstick Embossing Powder.  I heat set it using my Heat Tool then cut the circle out using my Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I also cut a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies and adhered the stitched circle to it using Snail.  I adhered the circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered a small Flirty Flamingo bow made from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base.

On the inside I stamped the single flower from Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely Stamp Set in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink in the center.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower from the Forever Lovely stamp set on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of All My Love 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 Flowering Desert for SUO Challenge

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  We’re half way through already.  Did you have a chance to hop around our Blog Hop yesterday?  If not, try to take the time to go back and see all the beautiful projects.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Flowering Desert Stamp Set.  I’ve done the Masking and Sponging Techniques on it.  I love doing both techniques.  Here’s my card.

My card was able to join in with the Stampin’ Up Only Challenge color challenge #218.  Be sure to stop by to play along and see what everyone else has made.  Here is their challenge. We are doing a fun spring color palette challenge of Granny Apple Green, Lovely Lipstick, and Pool Party, with a bonus color of Mango Melody. All neutrals are allowed.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the cactus from the Flowering Desert stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink in the center.  I covered the image with a mask I had made from a Post-It note and fussy cut.

I stamped the mountain image from the Stampin’ Up Waterfront Stamp Set behind the cactus in Basic Gray Ink.  I then began my sponging.  I started with the bottom and sponged Crumb Cake Ink using my Stamping Sponges, up to the mountains.  I stamped the sand image from the Waterfront stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink over the sponged area.

I next sponged Pool Party Ink above the mountains followed by Mango Melody Ink, Lovely Lipstick Ink and along the top I added some Smoky Slate Ink.  As I sponged up I blended the colors together.  I stamped the flowers on the cactus in Lovely Lipstick Ink and the aloe plants in the sand in Granny Apple Green Ink.  Using my Big Shot,  I cut the artwork out using the 2nd largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I cut a Pool Party frame out using the largest and 2nd largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I adhered the artwork and frame to a Mango Melody card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small strip of Pool Party cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Desert stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I made it into a banner and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the cactus from the Flowering Desert stamp set in the center using Granny Apple Green Ink stamping off twice.  I stamped the flowers from the same stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink stamping off 3 times and the aloe plants in Granny Apple Green Ink some stamping off once and some full strength ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink over the cactus.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mango Melody card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front and back of the envelope with the images from the Flowering Desert stamp set.

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

Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to our monthly Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop. The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies put together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some gorgeous projects.  This month our theme is ‘CELEBRATE SPRING’.  We can interpret this any way we would like to.  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects.  If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.  I’ve used the FREE with Sale-A-Bration , Painted Seasons Bundle and the Four Seasons Famelits Dies for my card today.  Here is my card for today.

I love doing Fancy Fold cards, it’s one of my favorites.  Whenever I see a different fold, I keep practicing until I get it right.  I just love the challenge of different folds.  My card has a lot of pieces to it.  All the measurements are listed below.  I started with a Pool Party panel and scored it at 5 1/4″.  Putting the short side on the edge of my Stampin’ Trimmer, I lined up the long edge at the 1″ mark.  I cut from 3″ to 7 1/2″.  I then put the long edge with the 3″ side on the edge of my Stampin’ Trimmer and the 5 1/4″ score mark to the right and scored at the 3″ mark.  Keeping the cardstock the same, I scored the 1″ piece at 7 1/2″.  I hope this makes sense to you.

Here is what it will look like once you fold on the score lines.

I adhered my Wood Textures Designer Series Paper on Petal Pink mats using Snail. I adhered my Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper on the smaller Petal Pink mats using Snail.  I adhered all the matted pieces to the scored Pool Party panel where they all fit using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Pool Party card front to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Big Shot I cut the word ‘friend’ out from the Well Written Framelit Dies in the Wood Textures DSP.  It did not photograph well, but it show up much better in person.  I adhered it to the bottom front section using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock, using my Stamparatus,  I stamped the succulent flower image from the Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons Stamp Set (FREE Sale-A-Bration item) 3 times.  I stamped 2 in Pool Party Ink and 1 in Petal Pink Ink. On the Petal Pink flower I used my Sponge Dauber and lightly went around the edges with Pool Party Ink and then stamped over the 1st image.  I did the same with the Pool Party flowers except I used Petal Pink Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the same stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist Ink 3 times.  Using my Big Shot, I cut all the images out with my Four Seasons Framelits Dies (available for a limited time during the month of March).  I adhered 2 of the flowers and the 3 leaf images to the front section of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I adhered the 3rd flower to the back section of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of Silver and Petal Pink Bakers Twine around the front section of the card front and tied a bow.  I added some Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the succulent flower from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock stamping it off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink over the flower.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the succulent flower from the Painted Seasons stamp set on the front of the envelope once in Petal Pink Ink and twice in Pool Party Ink.  I adhered a piece of Painted Seasons DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card today.

Stampin’ Up Heartland Masculine card for Watercooler Wednesday and Colour and Sketch

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your week?  Are you happy the weekend is finally here? Has anyone made fun plans?  I’m hoping to get a little crafting in myself, but we’ll see.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Heartland Stamp Set to make a masculine card for you.  This can be a Father’s Day card, Birthday, Thinking of you, or anything else you can think of.

I also joined in with a couple challenges today.  1st is the CAS Colour & Sketch Challenge # 309.  Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here are their colors for the challenge.

The next is Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #209.   Be sure to stop by here too and see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here is their challenge.

I started by adhering a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using Snail.  On another smaller piece of Wood Textures DSP I stamped the little boy with the ducks from the Heartland stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the right side.  I colored the little boy in with my Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker and my light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I then adhered the panel to the bottom of the Pear Pizzazz card front using Snail.
I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the seam twice and tied a small bow.  I adhered the card front to a So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tractor with the dog from the Heartland stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the tractor in using my Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker and my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampn’ Blends Marker.  Using my Big Shot, I cut the image out with my Square Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies and I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the tractor image from the Heartland stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Part Of My Story Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink over the tractor.  This stamp set is a Sale-A-Bration item free with a $50 order.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tractor image from the Heartland stamp set on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Wood 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. This was a pretty quick and easy card to make.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature Masculine Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers. The weekend is coming up quickly.  Is anyone making plans.

For today’s card I made a masculine card that we made at my last workshop.  The ladies wanted to make masculine cards, so that’s what we did.

I started with a panel of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper and using my Big Shot, I ran it through with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Big Shot again, I cut 2 panels of the Nature’s Poem DSP out using my Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I adhered each of the rectangles to a Tranquil Tide mat using Snail then I adhered them to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tree trunk image from the Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the trunk then I fussy cut the trunk.  I adhered the trunk to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I embossed and die cut a couple of the leaves from the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies in Tranquil Tide cardstock.  I adhered the triple leaf under the top of the trunk using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and I adhered the other 2 leaves on the bottom of the trunk using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered a small Mint Macaron bow from the Nature’s Twine using a Glue Dot on top of the leaf stems.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the same stamp set in Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Grapefruit Grove, Mint Macaron and Tranquil Tide Inks stamping off once or twice to get light images.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope the same as I did for the bottom of the inner liner of the card with the leaf images from the Rooted In Nature stamp set.  I adhered a piece of Nature’s Poem 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 Painted Seasons for Just Us Girls and TGIF

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope your week has started out well.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons Stamp Set again.  I’m loving this set.  You can get this set as a bundle with Designer Series Paper FREE with a $100.00 order.  I absolutely love the images in this set.  My card today is very similar to yesterday’s card in style, measurements are a little different and of course different colors.  Take a look.

I joined in with the ‘Just Us Girls’ color challenge # 475.  Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here is their colors.

I also joined in with the TGIF Sale-A-Bration Inspiration challenge #199. Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made for their challenge too and to play along.  Here is their challenge.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the succulent flower image from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink randomly around the paper.  I stamped the star clusters from the same stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink around filling in empty spaces.  I adhered the artwork panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up By The Bay Stamp Set, FREE Sale-A-Bration item with a $50.00 order, in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the bottom right of the card front.  I added 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels that I had colored in with my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend Marker, to the top corner of the card front.

On the inside I stamped the succulent flower image from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the two corners of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the star clusters from the same stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink by the flowers.  I stamped the sentiment from the By The Bay stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the succulent flower image from the Painted Seasons stamp set on the envelope front and the envelope flap in Blushing Bride Ink.  I stamped the star cluster in Cherry Cobbler Ink by the flowers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Yesterday and today’s card were the same layout, but using different colors, different measurements and the different flower making the cards look a little different.  Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons for Color Throwdown

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  For those of you that have today off for Presidents Day, I hope you’re enjoying your long weekend.  It was actually a beautiful weekend here, the weather was beautiful for this time of year.  Now the snow and ice start again.

For today’s card I used one of the new beautiful Sale-A-Bration stamp sets that’s available as a bundle with Designer Series Paper FREE with a $100.00 order.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons Stamp Set.  I did not use the DSP for my card today that comes with the bundle, but I will soon.  Take a look.

I joined in with the Color Throwdown challenge #530.  Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here is their challenge.

I started with a Smoky Slate card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink randomly around.  I then stamped the small star cluster image from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink around to fill in empty spaces.  I adhered the artwork to a Melon Mambo mat using Snail.  I then adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the card front to a Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the soon to be available from the Sale-A-Bration Coordination collection, Story Label Punch (available March 1st), I punched a label out in Melon Mambo cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Part Of My Story Stamp Set (Free Sale-A-Bration item) in Versamark Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I sprinkled it immediately with my Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment to the label and trimmed the ends to the label.  I added a Heart Epoxy Droplet, which I colored with my Dark Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend Marker (that was the closest to Melon Mambo I could get).  I adhered the label to the right of my artwork with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the flower from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink on the two corners of a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I added a couple of the star clusters from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink by the flowers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Melon Mambo mat using Snail and adhered it to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower from the Painted Seasons stamp set on the front of the envelope and the envelope flap in Melon Mambo Ink and the star cluster 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!
