Stampin’ Up! Art In Bloom for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, 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 my card using this weeks sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Art In Bloom Bundle for my card today.

I did follow the sketch most of the way. After I had everything glued down, I realized I had forgotten my twine.

I started by stamping the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Art In Bloom Photopolymer Stamp Set in Calypso Coral Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower fill images over the outlined image in Calypso Coral Ink, stamped off once, Pale Papaya and Petal Pink Inks. Using my Bloom Dies and Bloom Hybrid 3D Embossing Folder sandwiched together, I embossed and cut the flowers out. I stamped the leaf images from the Art In Bloom stamp set multiple times on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the outline and fill images in Just Jade, Mint Macaron and Soft Succulent Inks, stamping the outline in full strength and the fill stamped off once. I cut the leaves out using the Bloom Dies, I also cut a few outlined leaves in the coordinating cardstock colors.

I adhered the embossed Basic White panel (with the flowers cut out of it) to a Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the leaves to the openings using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the die cut flowers to the coordinating openings using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Art In Bloom stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Bloom Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the flower centers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Art In Bloom stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower outline image from the Art In Bloom stamp set on a smaller panel of Basic White cardstock in Calypso Coral Ink. I stamped the fill images the same as I did for the card front. This time I just cut the flowers out using the Bloom Die and adhered them to the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a couple leaves under the flowers while the Multipurpose Liquid Glue was still wet. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I stamped the flower outline image from the Art In Bloom stamp set on the front of a Basic White Medium Envelope in Calypso Coral Ink. I stamped the flower fill images in Calypso Coral Ink, stamped off once, Pale Papaya and Petal Pink Inks over the outlined images. I stamped the leaf images from the Art In Bloom stamp set in Just Jade, Mint Macaron and Soft Succulent Inks around the flowers. I adhered a panel of the Pale Papaya 2021-2023 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Biggest Wish for Amy’s Happy Inkin’ Krew 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 Jillian Good’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Birthday”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card along with the Patterned Party Host Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering a panel of the Patterned Party DSP to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered another panel of the Patterned Party DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set 3 times, using my Stamparatus, in Flirty Flamingo Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom, partially overlapping the last ‘Happy’. I embossed the panel using my Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic Black mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Black Matte Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Patterned Party DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Patterned Party DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today, I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.

Stampin’ Up! Snailed It for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Karen Finkle, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Color Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks colors.

I used the retiring Stampin’ Up! Snail Mail Suite for my card today. This suite is only available until June 30th.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #258.

I started by adhering a panel of the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper to a Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a smaller panel of the Snail Mail DSP to a Basic Gray mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic Gray cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the mushroom and snail image from the Snailed It stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. For the snails body, I used my Water Painters filled with alcohol and some Blushing Bride Ink on one of my blocks. I cut the images out using my Snail Dies and adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple Resin Heart Embellishments to the card front I tied a small double bow using the Blushing Bride twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the retiring Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the mushroom image from the Snailed It stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Gray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I stamped the mushroom image from the Snailed It stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White Medium Envelope. I colored the image in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Snail Mail 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! Plentiful Plants Thank You for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano, 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 amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks sketch.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Bundle for my card today along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper.

I started by embossing a Gray Granite card front using the Macramé 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flowerpot image from the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I stamped the leafy plant in Garden Green Ink and the fern plant in Evening Evergreen Ink. I cut the images out using my Perfect Plants Dies. I cut the plant hanger from a panel of Gray Granite cardstock using the Perfect Plants Dies. I snipped the sides of the hanger off using my Paper Snips then arranged my flowerpot and plants the way I wanted and adhered them using Glue Dots. I adhered the hanging plant to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I threaded a piece of Gray Granite Bakers Twine, from the Bakers Twine Essentials Pack, through the top of the hanger and adhered it to the back of the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Gray Granite card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Gray Granite cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Mint Macaron Genial Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leafy plant from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the flowerpot. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gray Granite mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the leafy plant from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the flowerpot. I adhered a panel of the Bloom Where You’re Planted 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! Friends Are Like Seashells for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Karen Finkle, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle for my card today along with the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper.

I started by stamping the sand image from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of a panel of the Sand & Sea DSP and adhering it to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered 2 small panels of the Sand & Sea DSP to Sahara Sand Mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the 2 small matted panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. This DSP will be retiring on June 30th when the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog retires.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a strip of Sahara Sand cardstock, off centering it, and adhered the matted sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sand image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom corner of the panel. I stamped the seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on top of the sand. I colored some of the seaweed in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers. On another panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the starfish image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and the seashell image in Blushing Bride Ink. I cut the images out using the Seaside Shells Dies and adhered them to the small panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sand image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the seaweed images in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the sand image and colored some of the seaweed in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the seaweed images in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the sand image . I adhered a panel of the Sand & Sea DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Hats Off 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 “For the Men/Boys”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Hats Off Bundle for my card today.

I started by embossing a panel of Night of Navy cardstock using the new Bark 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Crumb Cake card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the hat image from the Stampin’ Up! Hats Off Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink. I cut the image out using the Hat Builder Dies. On a small panel of Coastal Cabana cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Hats Off stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Hat Builder Dies and adhered it to the hat using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the hat to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the 2 sentiments from the Hats Off stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the small hat from the Hat Builder Dies out of the Crumb Cake panel and adhered it next to the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the hat image from the Hats Off stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front. I colored the hat in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today, I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.

Stampin’ Up! Delicate Petals for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a 2021-2023 In-Color Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s amazing projects. I used the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Petals Bundle for my card. Here is my card using this weeks colors.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Getting Sketchy Challenge #256.

I used all 5 of the 2021-2023 In-Colors for my card.

I started by stamping the lacy petal image from the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pale Papaya Ink on a Pale Papaya card front. I adhered the card front to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a strip of Basic White cardstock using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder and adhered it to an Evening Evergreen mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of the Soft Succulent 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Basic White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flower image and the smaller leaf images from the Delicate Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Lacy Petals Dies. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Delicate Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of the panel. I adhered the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves to the back of the die cut flowers using Glue Dots then adhered the flowers to the top and bottom of the Basic White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Polished Pink 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the sentiment panel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the lacy petal image from the Delicate Petals stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the 4 corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I stamped the lacy petal image from the Delicate Petals stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the corners of the front and back of a Basic White Medium Envelope.

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. 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 amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks sketch.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set (available May 4th) for my card today. My colors are from the Fab Friday Challenge #212.

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper (retiring May 3rd) to a Terracotta Tile card base (retiring may 3rd) using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the news print image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set across the stem in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I adhered the artwork to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Old Olive Ink and adhered it to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and a Glue Dot. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink, stamping off once. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the splotch image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the flower. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the splotch image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the flowers. I adhered a panel of 2019-2021 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Prince and Princess for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Prince & Princess Photopolymer Host Stamp Set for my card today along with the new Basic Borders Dies.

Our theme is Things With Wings. Swans have wings, right?

I started by embossing a panel of Pool Party cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the swan image from the Prince & Princess host stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the beak using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers and added a little color to the feathers using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the water image below the swan in Pool Party Ink. I stamped the leaf image from the Prince & Princess stamp set in Just Jade Ink on either side of the swan image and colored them in using my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the cattails image on the leaves in Soft Suede Ink and colored them in using my Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Using my new Basic Borders Dies, I cut the Basic White panel on an angle using the cloud looking die. I adhered the artwork to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Prince & Princess stamp set in Just Jade Ink and adhered it to a strip of Just Jade cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment stamp set to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Prince & Princess stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel in Just Jade Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set below the sentiment in Just Jade Ink. I stamped the leaf image from the Prince & Princess stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it using my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I added the cattails to the leaf image stamping them in Soft Suede Ink and coloring them with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the swan image from the Prince & Princess stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the water image below the swan in Pool Party Ink. I colored the beak using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers and added a little color to the swans feathers using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped and colored the envelope flap using the leaf and cattails images from the Prince & Princess stamp set.

There’s no “batter” way to root, root, root for your home team and honor the all-stars in your life!

Paper Pumpkin Kit contains a couple sticks of the chewy staple; chew while you craft, slide a piece into a card, or save it for later.

Send a seventh-inning stretch in a classic card with all-star stripes, a nostalgic nod, and a stamp set fit for an MVP! But, before you give it all you’ve got, give this month’s promotional video a watch. See what the Batter Up! kit is all about! Play ball!
