Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Easter

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you are having a great weekend.  It’s been raining here all weekend, so it kind of makes staying home easy.  I did have to work for a few hours yesterday and everyone that came to the store was very understanding and patient.

For today’s card I made you an Easter card using the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Bundle and some pretty pastel colors.  Here’s my card for today.

My sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #428.  Here is their sketch.

I played along with Just Add Ink Theme Challenge #498.  Here is their challenge. My “E” is Easter.

I was inspired by “Just Us Girls” Photo Challenge #529.  Here is their photo. Nothing says spring more that a pasture of tulips.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base using Snail.

I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set 3 times in Mint Macaron Ink.  Using the largest scallop circle die from the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White circle to the scalloped circle using Snail.  I cut a small portion of the circle off to make a straight edge.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the largest tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set 3 times in So Saffron Ink which I edged in Petal Pink Ink using my Sponge Dauber.  I punched all 3 tulips out using my Tulip Builder Punch.  I adhered the 2 end tulips to the circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the center tulip using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the edge of the DSP on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow, which I made from the Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon, using a Glue Dot.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint macaron Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink a couple times on the stems.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in So Saffron Ink and edged it using my Sponge Dauber in Petal Pink Ink on the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope with the stem and leaf images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink 3 times.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in So Saffron Ink edged with Petal Pink Ink, using my Sponge Dauber, 3 times on the stem images.  I adhered a panel of the Pleased As Punch 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.  Just a reminder, the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper which is part of the Coordination Products, will only be available until March 31st.  If you are liking this DSP, don’t wait to order it.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and are making the best of the social distancing and quarantined situations by doing some fun crafting.   Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Happy Easter

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re halfway through the week already.  Hope you are having a productive week.

I have another card from our card class last week that we made.  My card was CASEd from my team leader Amy Koenders.  You can see her card here.  I thought I would change it by using a different color.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Purple Posy cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  Using my Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers I added a little color inside the embossed flowers.  I adhered the Purple Posy panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail.

I adhered a panel of the New Sale-A-Bration item, So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper which is available free with a qualifying purchase, to a Purple Posy card base using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the sentiment out of a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using my Word Wishes Dies.  I brushed the sentiment using Clear Wink of Stella to give is a little shimmer.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  Using my Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers, I colored the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set and stamped it on the top of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set, which I colored using my Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Colors 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Forever Blossoms Easter for Amy’s 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 and you know what 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 Karen Finkle’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Spring”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.

For my card today I combined 2 stamp sets.  One from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog and the other from the Annual Catalog along with a new Sale-A-Bration item. Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Soft Sea Foam So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Snail.  I put the Snail under my artwork so that you couldn’t see the lines.  Using the Cherry Blossoms Dies, I cut all the flowers from a panel of Petal Pink cardstock.  I cut all the leaves from a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I cut the branch and flower centers from a panel of Soft Suede cardstock.  I sponged the edges of all the flowers using my Stamping Sponges and Petal Pink Ink.  I sponged all the leaves using my Stamping Sponges and Soft Sea Foam Ink.  I adhered all the leaves to the back of the flowers using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies making sure the sentiment was towards the bottom right of the die.

I arranged the branch and the flowers on the top left corner of the die cut sentiment.  I adhered them, once I had them where I wanted them, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Easter Promise stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large floral branch image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set, which I colored using my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers, on the top of the panel.  I stamped 2 small flower images from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the bottom of the panel and stamped a double leaf image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Suede mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral branch image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set, which I colored using my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise for Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects today. This week we had a Color Challenge, here are the colors we got to work with.

Here’s what I came up with for these colors.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom right of a panel of Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (which is a Sale-A-Bration item).  I immediately sprinkled it with my Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the Lily Impressions DSP to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to a Lovely Lipstick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 strips of cardstock, one in Bermuda Bay and the other in Granny Apple Green, into banners using the Banner Triple Punch.  I adhered the banners to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the large flower image from the Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Using the Layering Squares Dies, I cut the scallop square that was slightly larger that the stitched square in Basic Black cardstock.  I adhered the artwork to the Basic Black scalloped mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small flower image from the Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Lovely Lipstick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large flower image from the Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the front of the envelope.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Lily Impressions DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Winds of Change Easter Card

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off.  It’s starting to feel a lot like spring here.  This is one of the mildest winters I remember in a long time.  I blame it on my Team Leader moving to NJ from GA.  I think she brought the mild winter with her.

Today’s card is another one we are doing tonight at our card class.  My design was inspired by one of my team members Akiko Sudano.  You can see her card here. Here is my take on her card.

I started by embossing a panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Soft Suede mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted panel to a Petal Pink card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tulip image from the Stampin’ Up! Winds of Change Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Painted Labels Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the Petal Pink card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I made the strip into a banner using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to a  strip of Soft Suede cardstock, which I made into a banner using my Paper Snips, using Snail.  I adhered the matted banner to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tulip image from the Winds of Change stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Suede mat using Snail and then 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 tulip image from the Winds of Change stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a Petal Pink panel of the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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!!

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I had to work both days, but I have today off, YAY!!  Today is my fur babies birthday, she turned 12.  I thought I’d share a couple pictures of her with you.  She was my mother’s day gift 12 years ago, and the best gift I ever received.  Her name is Jasmine. The 1st one is the day I got her, she was about 10 weeks old and the last one is recent.  She’s gotten a little grey, but still acts like a puppy at times.  She is definitely a mommy’s girl.  Thanks for letting me share.

Onto today’s card.  Tomorrow night we’re having our monthly card class.  We’re planning on making 4 Easter/Spring cards.  Here is one of the cards we’re going to make.

The colors in my card were inspired by Just Add Ink Challenge #494.  Here are their color.  I absolutely love these colors together, so soft and springy.

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #260.  Here is their theme.

I started by embossing a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the Stone 3D Embossing Folder which you can earn as a bundle with a qualifying order from Sale-A-Bration.   This embossing folder is one I’m really hoping carries over to the next Annual Catalog, it’s one of my favorites.  I took my Soft Sea Foam stamp pad and gently wiped it across the embossed panel shading the raised parts.  I then took my Smoky Slate stamp pad and gently wiped that across the panel.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large outline flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Photopolymer Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink.  I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the outlined image.  I stamped the leaf fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink over the outlined image.  I was able to get everything lined up so perfectly using my Stamparatus.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I cut a small panel of Smoky Slate cardstock using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies that was the same size as my rectangle.  I adhered the artwork to the Smoky Slate mat on an angle using Glue Dots and adhered it to my card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small piece of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon which I tied in a knot to the artwork using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On a thin strip of Petal Pink cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the sentiment.  I stamped the leaf fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink below the flower image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the outline flower image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set on the envelope front in Smoky Slate Ink.  I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the outlined image.  I stamped the leaf fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink over the outlined image.  I adhered a Soft Sea Foam panel of Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Happy Easter, Happy Spring Sending Flowers

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  We had a beautiful sunny weekend here, nice change from all the rain.

For today’s card I played with one of the Coordination items available now.  Here’s my card.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #423.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #581.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Smoky Slate Neutrals 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper to a Smoky Slate card base using Snail.

I cut 2 of the Coordination Sending Flowers Dies, one from Granny Apple Green cardstock and one from Whisper White cardstock.  I cut 2 each of the flowers from the Sending Flowers Dies in Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo cardstock.  I adhered the flowers to the large dies using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I colored the stems on the Whisper White one using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers. With the Whisper White die cut, I trimmed off the top and sides using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the Granny Apple Green die cut on top of the Whisper White one, off centering it so that you can see all the flowers, using Snail along the bottom.  I trimmed off the excess using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the die cut to my card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered a thin strip of Melon Mambo and Gorgeous Grape below the flowers.  I stamped the top portion only of the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White strip under the Gorgeous Grape strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Glitter Enamel Dots to the strips.

On the inside I stamped the bottom portion of the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stems and leave from the Timeless Tulip stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on both sides of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the smallest tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo Inks on the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Snail and then 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 stems and leave from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the smallest tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo Ink on the stems.  I adhered a panel of the Smoky Slate Neutrals 6 X 6 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!!
