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!

Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala for CAS(E) This Sketch and Fab Friday Challenges

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and Happy Valentine’s Day.  Does anyone have plans for tonight?   Date night with your significant others maybe.  What ever you do, enjoy your evening.  I’ll be staying in since mine still has a broken leg and broken ribs.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Stamp Set for a clean and simple card and since it is Valentine’s Day I figured I’d use some pinks for my card.  It seemed appropriate for the occasion.  Take a look.

I joined in with 2 challenges today also.  First I played along with CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #308.

Second I played along with Fab Friday Color challenge #156.  Be sure to stop by both to see all the beautiful projects made and to play along.

I started with a Blushing Bride card front and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the right side.

I took a small panel of Lovely Lipstick cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot with the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to the right side of the card front, up against the edge, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped one of the small butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set 3 times on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I then stamped the inside of each of the butterflies in Grapefruit Grove Ink.  I punched the butterflies out using my Butterfly Duet Punch (which unfortunately is currently on backorder) and adhered them to the embossed panel using Glue Dots.  I added a Black Faceted Dots to each of the butterflies and bent their wings up a little.  I adhered the card front to a Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Bright Wishes Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped 3 more butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the top portion of 2 of the butterflies and bottom portion of 1 butterfly in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I stamped the top portion of 1 butterfly and bottom portion of 2 butterflies in Grapefruit Grove Ink then punched all 3 butterflies out using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  I adhered the butterflies around the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the butterfly image from the Butterfly Gala stamp set on the front and back flap of the envelope.  I stamped the colors Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick on the inside of the butterflies.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my Clean & Simple, Quick & Easy card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up By The Bay For TGIF and ‘Just Us Girls’ Challenges

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  Were you able to hop around yesterday with our team Blog Hop? If not, go back and check out everyone’s beautiful projects.

For today’s card I used a FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp set called By The Bay.  I joined in with the TGIF Challenge #198 and ‘Just Us Girls’ Challenge #474. Be sure to stop by both challenges to see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here is my card that I came up with for the challenges.

Here is the TGIF Sketch Challenge

and here is ‘Just Us Girls’ Challenge

I started with a panel of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the house image from the Stampin’ Up By The Bay Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  This beautiful stamp set is a FREE item with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration.  I just love this image and would absolutely love to be in that house looking out at the bay right now.  On a smaller piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the seagull image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Using my Aqua Painter filled with Alcohol, I water colored the images in using Balmy Blue, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Gray Granite, Pacific Point, Pear Pizzazz, Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate and Soft Suede Inks.  To get the ink I squeezed the stamp pad before opening it so that ink goes on the inside of the lid.  I used my Aqua Painter to pick up the ink to color my picture with.  When I was done with each color, I wiped the lid with paper towel to make sure ALL alcohol was off the lid before closing it.  You do not want to get alcohol in your ink.  Once I was done watercoloring my pictures I cut them out using the Layering Oval Framelits Dies and my Big Shot.  I adhered the house and bay image to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and I adhered the seagull image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the By The Bay stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the seashell from the same stamp set to the right of the sentiment in Crumb Cake Ink.  I edged the strip using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker to give it a little dimension.  I then adhered the sentiment to the card front, sliding it under the seagull image, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I attached a small bow made of Linen Thread to the sentiment strip using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the house image from By The Bay stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping it off once, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Soft Suede Ink over the house image.

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

Stampin’ Up Meant To Be Forever Lovely

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started?  Is everyone warming up a little from that freezing weather we were having?

For today’s card I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely and Meant To Be Stamp Sets for a clean and simple card. Take a look.

I joined in with Global Design Projects 175 Theme Challenge too.  Be sure to check out all the beautiful projects that were made and play along too.  Here is their challenge.

I am really loving my Stamparatus.  I used it for this card and envelope and was able to line everything up perfectly.  I started with a Whisper White card front and stamped the floral image from Forever Lovely stamp set.  I first stamped the leaf image in Soft Sea Foam Ink.  I then stamped the floral image, lining it up using my Stamparatus, in Petal Pink Ink.
I wrapped a piece of the gorgeous new Petal Pink/Whisper White Variegated Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  This ribbon is so wonderful to work with and makes bows so easy.  I added a Glue Dot under the bow to hold it in place.  I added a few clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front by the flowers.
I stamped the sentiment from the Meant To Be stamp set in Petal Pink on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch.  I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
It is extremely hard to see, but I stamped the leaves and floral design, from the Forever Lovely stamp set, the same way I did on the card front, stamping off once, on the inside Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the floral image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Snail.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaves and floral image from the Forever Lovely stamp set on the envelope front and the envelope flap the same way that I did for the card front.

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

Stampin’ Up Bella and Friends Pretty Kitty for Watercooler Wednesday

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  Did anyone watch the Super Bowl? Did your team win or did you just watch for the commercials like I do?

For today’s card I have a little girls birthday card using the Stampin’ Up Bella and Friends Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up Pretty Kitty Stamp Set.  I also used the beautiful Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets that are free with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration.  You get 8 sheets of this gorgeous paper, 4 Lovely Lipstick and 4 Grapefruit Grove.  Get it before supplies run out.

For my card today I joined Watercooler Wednesday challenge #206. Be sure to stop by to see everyone’s projects and to play along.  Here is their challenge.

I started by layering a panel of the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet and a panel of Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper on a Lemon Lime Twist card base.  I decided where I wanted the peek-a-boo circle and placed my Layering Circles Framelits Dies on top of the card front.  Using my Big Shot I ran it through all 3 layers, going through a couple of times to make sure it cut  all the way through.  I adhered the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet on the Lemon Lime Twist card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the Animal Expedition DSP on the Foil Sheet using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Big Shot again, I cut the scallop circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies that was larger than the card front circle out of Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet.  I adhered the scallop circle over the card front circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the dog with balloon image from the Bella and Friends stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Call Me Clover, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I then fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the dog to the right of the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the bird just under the circle using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Kitty stamp set in Berry Burst Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock and made a banner using my Triple Banner Punch.  I adhered the banner to the left side of the card front using Snail.

On the inside I stamped the kitty in the flower-pot image from the Pretty Kitty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I lined it up and stamped it so that it would be peeking through the card front circle.  I colored the kitty in using my Call Me Clover, Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Berry Burst mat using Snail and adhered it to the inside of the Lemon Lime Twist card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Kitty stamp set on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock in Berry Burst Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I cut a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, that was just larger than the stitched oval, out of the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet.  I adhered the stitched oval to the scalloped oval using Snail and adhered it to the inner liner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the puppy and kitty image from the Bella and Friends and Pretty Kitty stamp sets on the front of the envelope.  I colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a piece of Animal Expedition DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up Humming Along

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How had your week started? Is anyone expecting snow today and tomorrow.  I think the storm is going to miss us again.

For today’s card I used the new Stampin’ Up Humming Along Stamp Set and some of the beautiful new Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper. Take a look.

I started with a Mossy Meadow card front and adhered a piece of Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper to it using Snail.  I then took a strip of Petal Pink cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Petal Pink strip on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a piece of the gorgeous Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a panel of Whisper White cardstock using a tiny bit of Snail just in the corners.  I did this because the piece I picked was Vellum and sometimes adhesive shows through it.  I then adhered the mounted DSP to a Mossy Meadow mat using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Hibiscus image from the Stampin’ Up Humming Along Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the hibiscus out using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies with my Big Shot.   I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow made from the Silver and Petal Pink Bakers Twine and added it to the flower stem with a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the hibiscus image from the Humming Along stamp set in Petal Pink Ink, stamping off once, to a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set over the hibiscus in Fresh Fig Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Snail then adhered it to the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the hibiscus from the Humming Along stamp set in Fresh Fig Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the hibiscus in the same way I did for the card front.  I adhered a piece of Tranquil 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. Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up Bright Wishes for Color Throwdown

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  Did anyone do anything interesting or fun?

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Bright Wishes Stamp Set and I joined in with the Color Throwdown Color Challenge #527.

Be sure to stop by the Color Throwdown and see what everyone has made and to play along. Here are their colors.  I just love Navy Blue and Green together.

I started with a piece of Vellum cardstock and stamped the Well from the Bright Wishes stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I colored the image in with my Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Smoky Slate and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I did the coloring on the back of the Vellum, not on the embossed side.  Using my Big Shot, I cut the image out with my Rectangle Stitched  Framelits Dies.  I also cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock the same size as the rectangle to adhere under the Vellum image.

I cut a rectangle frame out in Old Olive cardstock using the same size framelit that I cut the Vellum image.  I adhered the Vellum image to the Very Vanilla cardstock using small spots of Snail so that you wouldn’t see it.  I adhered the Very Vanilla artwork and the Old Olive frame to a Night of Navy card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Old Olive Linen Thread around the card front.  I made a bow separately and adhered it to the card front on the Linen Thread with a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the Well from the Bright Wishes stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the Well.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail then adhered it to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the Well image from the Bright Wishes stamp set on the front of the envelope and colored it in the same as I did for the card front.  It came out a little darker since I colored the card front on the backside of the Vellum.

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