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.

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.

Stampin’ Up Love You To Pieces Anniversary Card 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 we’re doing “Giving Thanks”.  We can interpret this any way we want – so be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a group of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

For my card today I used the Stampin’ Up Love You To Pieces Bundle.  It’s actually a puzzle that I had to put together after cutting it out.  Take a look.

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I adhered a piece of Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper to the card base using Snail.

I stamped a piece of Thick Very Vanilla cardstock, using the Stampin’ Up Marbled background stamp, in Fresh Fig Ink stamping it off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Love You To Pieces stamp set in the center in Fresh Fig Ink.  Then using the Puzzle Pieces Thinlits Dies, I centered the sentiment with the thinlits die and cut it out using my Big Shot.

Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue I put the puzzle back together on a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I attached Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the Pear Pizzazz panel and weaved some Rose Metallic Thread around till I liked how it looked.  I then adhered it to the card base.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the Puzzle Pieces with the sentiments from the Love You To Pieces stamp set in Fresh Fig Ink.  I stamped the outlined puzzle pieces in the 4 corners with Fresh Fig Ink.  Using Snail I adhered the liner to a Pear Pizzazz cardstock mat.  I adhered it to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope on the bottom front with the outlined puzzle pieces.  I adhered a piece of Tranquil Textures DSP to the envelope flap.  This is such a wonderful stamp set, especially if you like doing puzzles.

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Karen’s page or the Next Blog button to jump to Jaimie’s’s page.
