Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Sneak Peek for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and that means it’s time for another 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 awesome projects. This month our theme is ‘MASCULINE’. 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.

For today’s card I have a little sneak peek for you along with a Fun Fold card.  I used the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Stamp Set, the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, the Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack and one of the new 2019-2021 In-Colors Seaside Spray, all which will be available June 4th.  I really struggle with masculine cards, but I had so much fun with this one.  The Sailing Home Suite makes it really easy to make a masculine card.  Here’s my card.

I started with the new 2019-2021 In-Color, Seaside Spray cardstock and scored it at 2 3/4″ and 8 1/4″ to make a gate fold card.

On the 2 sides I adhered a panel of the new Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I made a little collage for the overlapping panel.  I stamped 2 of the Whisper White panels with the sailboat image and sentiment from the new Sailing Home stamp set in Night Of Navy Ink.  I adhered the anchor and banner stickers, that come in the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack, on the 2 smaller panels.  I sponged all the panels using my Stamping Sponge and Sahara Sand Ink.  I then adhered all the pieces to a panel of Night Of Navy cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that I had a little wiggle room.  I adhered the collaged panel to one side of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a knot using the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine and adhered it to the artwork using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up High Tide Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the water from the same set on the bottom of the panel in Seaside Spray Ink.  I stamped the lighthouse from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink and the birds from the same stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then adhered it to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope similar to the inside of the card adding the sailboat from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered a panel of Come Sail Away DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card, this was a lot of fun to make.  The Come Sail Away Suite made it so easy.  If you like the items I used, they will be available June 4th.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! has posted their retiring lists for the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and 2019 Occasions Catalog.  Head over to my online store to pick up those retiring items now!  They’re only available while supplies last from now through June 3!

A few notes about the lists:

  • Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, these items will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.
  • Order deadline to get the retiring products:  June 3, 2019; 11:50 PM (MT)

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

You can download copies of the full retiring lists in PDF Form here:

Stampin’ Up Wonderful Romance 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 awesome projects.  This month our theme is ‘FEMININE’.  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. For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Wonderful Romance Bundle.  Here’s my card.

I started with a panel of Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a panel of Whisper White cardstock using just a few Glue dots where you wouldn’t see them to easily since it was the Vellum.  I then adhered it to a Petal Pink mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Fresh Fig mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the double matted DSP to a Petal Pink card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small leafy image from the Wonderful Romance stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink around the edges.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Fresh Fig Ink towards the top of the square.  I adhered the artwork to a Petal Pink mat using Snail and then to a Fresh Fig mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large floral image from the Wonderful Romance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Fresh Fig and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the image out using my Big Shot and my Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies.  Using the same die set, I cut a few leaves out of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and the small embellishment out of Fresh Fig cardstock.  I arranged the die cuts how I liked them and adhered them with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I added a Petal Pink Frosted Flower to the sentiment panel and a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the floral die cut.  I added a double Whisper White Bakers Twine bow to the floral stem using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the large floral image from the Wonderful Romance stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink, stamping it off once, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Strong and Beautiful Stamp Set in Fresh Fig Ink over the floral image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Snail and to a Fresh Fig mat using Multipurpose Liquid glue.  I then adhered it to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Wonderful Romance stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a piece of Floral Romance 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 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 Botanical Butterfly for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

 

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog  Hop.  If you are starting with me, welcome and be sure to hop around and see all the beautiful projects that everyone has made.  If you are hopping over from Amy Koenders blog, welcome to my blog. The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies puts together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see a lot of gorgeousness.  This months theme is ‘Birthday’.  I made a fun fold card for today’s blog hop.  I saw this design on Pinterest, but can not remember who made it.  Here is my card.

There are a lot of pieces to my card and all the measurements are found below.  I started with a Highland Heather panel of Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Humming Along Stamp Set in Highland Heather Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  I punched the sentiment out using the Pretty Label Punch.  I punched out 2 more of the labels from my Basic Black cardstock.

I adhered the 2 Basic Black labels using Snail behind the  sentiment so they were peeking out on the top and bottom.  I adhered a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon to the card front using Snail then  I adhered the matted sentiment on top of the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Butterfly Duet Punch, I punched out some butterflies from a couple different Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration item).  The great thing about this punch is it not only punches out the butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set it also fits the butterflies on the Botanical Butterfly DSP which is a FREE item with a $50  during Sale-A-Bration.  I adhered 2 small and 1 large butterfly to the card front and 1 small butterfly to the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added one of the Butterfly Elements (another Sale-A-Bration item) behind the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I also added one of the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the sentiment.  I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I adhered 2 panels of the Botanical Butterfly DSP to Basic Black mats using Snail and I adhered them both to either side of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Big Shot I cut out 4 stitched squares from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies in the Highland Heather Gingham Gala DSP.  I adhered all 4 of them to a Basic Black mat and a Highland Heather mat both cut from my Layering Squared Framelits Dies, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a butterfly punched out from the Botanical Butterfly DSP, to each of the squares using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to each of the squares.  I adhered a Basic Black strip of paper, which had been scored, to the inside only adhering it on the 2 end sections.  I adhered each of the squares to a section of the Basic Black strip using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Here is a top view of the inside.

After I was all finished with the inside I realized that I didn’t leave a spot to put a sentiment or write, So I added another panel to the back.

I adhered a panel of the Highland Heather Gingham Gala DSP to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I added a couple more of the butterflies punched out from the Botanical Butterfly DSP and adhered them to the Whisper White panel and cut off what over hung using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the card back using Snail and adhered it to the back of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a couple of the large butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly DSP to the front of the envelope and a panel of the same DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop.  The 2nd Tuesday of each month we have a Blog Hop.  If you are starting here or have hopped over from Julie Johnston’s blog Welcome.  I hope you will take the time to hop around and see all the amazing projects made by my remarkable team members.  They are a very talented group of ladies.  Our theme for this month is “LOVE”.  We can interpret this any way we would like to.  Here is the card I made for this months Blog Hop.  Take a look.

I started with a Gray Granite card front and adhered a panel of Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper using Snail. Using my Big Shot and the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, I cut out the border of hearts in Petal Pink cardstock.  I also cut out the border of hearts in Gray Granite cardstock.  I adhered the Petal Pink border about 2/3 the way down on my card front.  Using Glue Dots I adhered the Gray Granite hearts inside the Petal Pink border (hope this makes sense).

I wrapped a piece of Silver & Petal Pink Bakers Twine around the card front and tied a side bow.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Forever Lovely stamp set in Gray Granite Ink.  I punched the sentiment out using the Pretty Label Punch.  I punched a second label out in Gray Granite cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White label to the Gray Granite label using Snail.  I adhered the label to the card front using Stampin’ dimensionals.  I then adhered a few of the hearts that were cut out from the Petal Pink heart border to the label using Glue Dots for the 2 smaller hearts and a Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals for the larger heart.  I brushed the hearts with some Wink Of Stella to give them a little shimmer.

On the inside I stamped the cluster of hearts from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Gray Granite Ink over the hearts.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Snail and then to a Gray Granite mat using Snail again.  I adhered the matted  piece to the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I adhered a piece of Twinkle Twinkle DSP to a Medium Whisper White Envelope flap.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Now please feel free to hop around and see everyone’s amazing projects.  you can click on Next to go to Mary Deatherage’s blog or Previous to go to Julie Johnston’s blog.  You can also click on each persons name to see what they have made.  Happy Hopping!

Stampin’ Up Half Full Floating Card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

 

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop. If you have started with me or come from  Jaimie Babarcay’s gorgeous project, welcome. The second Tuesday of every month the team does a blog hop with a different theme each month.  This months Theme is ‘CELEBRATE’. We can interpret this any way we want.  We have a group of amazing stampers, so be sure to hop around to see all the beautiful projects everyone has made.

Here’s mine for today’s blog hop.  Take a look.

I started with a Merry Merlot card base.  I cut the front leaving 2 1/2″ from the center score line.  I then cut the remaining piece to 1 1/2″.  I stamped the top with the Cheer sentiment from Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Versamark Ink and sprinkled it immediately with my Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the Holiday out from the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies using my Big Shot from a piece of Copper Foil Sheet and adhered it above the Cheer using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The Merry Christmas To All Bundle is available at a 10% discount only until January 2, 2019.  After that the stamp set and Thinlits Dies will be available separately at the non-discounted price.  If you were thinking about getting this set, now would be the perfect time when you can save an extra 10%.

I stamped the set of wine glasses from the Half Full stamp set in Stazon Ink on a small piece of Window Sheet.  I colored the wine glasses in using my Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered the Window Sheet to the inside of the top section of the card base  using Snail.   I then adhered the smaller piece of the card front to the bottom section of the Window Sheet, again using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of 5/8″ Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon around the bottom section and tied a knot and to hold it in place I added a Glue Dot under the knot.

On a small piece of Shimmery White cardstock, I stamped the wine bottle from the Half Full stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the bottle and the cap in using my Aqua Painter and So Saffron and Soft Suede Inks.  I adhered the bottle to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals connecting the top and bottom of the card base.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the top and bottom.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiments from the Half Full stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink.  I made sure that I stamped above and below the Window Sheet so that it didn’t show through where the wine glasses were.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the wine bottle and wine glasses from the Half Full stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope and the wine glasses on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Now you can either hit the Next or Previous to hop around to see all the other amazing projects made.  You can also click on each name to see what everyone has made.  Happy Hopping!

Stampin’ Up Snow Is Glistening for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning everyone and welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is “Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays”.  We can interpret this any way we want – so be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a group of very talented ladies hopping with us this month!

For my card today I used the Snow Is Glistening stamp set that is only available until November 30th.  Take a look.

I started with a panel of Vellum cardstock and stamped the tree from Snow Is Glistening stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I adhered the Velum panel to a Gold Foil Sheet mat using Glue Dots. I added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels all over the tree to decorate it.

Using my Big Shot, I cut out the Merry from Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies and 2 of the smallest snowflakes from Snowfall Thinlits Dies from a Gold Foil Sheet.  I adhered the Merry across the tree using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the snowflakes to the top of the tree using Glue Dots.  Using my Big Shot again, I ran a Real Red card front through using my Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered the artwork to the Real Red card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped Christmas from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Real Red Ink on a piece of Gold Metallic-Edged Ribbon.  I wrapped the ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Real Red Ink.  I stamped one of the scrolls under the sentiment in Real Red Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then adhered it to the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I stamped the tree from Snow Is Glistening stamp set in Real Red Ink on the front left of a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.
