Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship 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’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Birthday 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Seasonal Labels Dies for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Birthday 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of the Neutrals DSP to a Soft Suede card base.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Birthday 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the solid image of the treetop from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink and the detailed treetop image in Pumpkin Pie Ink over the Crushed Curry image. I cut the image out using the largest die from the Seasonal Labels Dies.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Birthday 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the die cut image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the smaller die from the Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered a piece of Crumb Cake Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack to the artwork using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the treetop images from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie Inks. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base.

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s weekend is going well. I hope you will all take a moment of silence today for all the lives that were lost over 20 years ago. I remember the day like it was yesterday with all our phone going dead and just glued to the tv watching. My children were both in school in lock down until school was over and I could pick them up. I was so scared of what was happening and what could happen. It was a very sad and scary time.

Today’s card is one that we made at our Stamp Camp Class this past Tuesday night. I thought I’d have fun with a couple techniques with the ladies. This one I saw one of my team members make, Mary Deatherage, and I thought it would be perfect with our fall theme. It’s called the Josephs Coat Technique. You can see Mary’s video making this card Here. Here is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

Today’s card once again uses the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Cling Stamp Set. This is such a perfect set for fall cards and all kinds of techniques.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started with a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and using my Blending Brushes I added Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie Inks completely covering the panel. I set the panel to the side to dry completely. You can also use your Heat Tool on the #1 setting to dry the panel. You want to make sure the ink is completely dry before stamping or the embossing powder will stick to the ink and this technique will not work.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Once the panel was completely dry, I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Versamark Ink randomly around the panel. I sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. Once the panel cooled, I used my Blending Brush again and brushed Early Espresso Ink all over the panel completely covering it again. Once I had the amount of ink I wanted, I took a paper towel and gently rubbed all over the panel wiping the ink off the embossed areas and letting the colors shine through. I adhered the panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Very Vanilla Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered a piece of Old Olive ribbon from the Old Olive & Sahara Sand Twill Ribbon Combo Pack to the card front. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Textural Element to the card front just under the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I used my Blending Brushes and added color to the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set and stamped the leaves on the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Early Espresso mat and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla Thick card base

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie Inks.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Triple Time

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun planned or maybe relaxing is the plan. It’s supposed to be a beautiful weekend here in NJ. I’m hoping to get in a walk or 2 with Coraline to get some of her energy out. Tomorrow, I get to visit my team leader Amy for our meeting and see her dog, Ginny. Ginny always knows I’m coming, and I bring her some kind of treat from the bakery.

Today’s card I used a set from the Annual Catalog doing one of my favorite techniques. This card used Stamps, Ink and Paper all layered together. I added a couple embellishment to dress it up a bit. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Forever Fern Triple Time 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set for my Triple Time card today.

Stampin' Up! Forever Fern Triple Time 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the smallest panel of Basic White cardstock. I took the 3 panels of Basic White cardstock and lightly adhered them together using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal.

Stampin' Up! Forever Fern Triple Time 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I randomly stamped the leaf and splatter images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry Inks on the layered panels.

Stampin' Up! Forever Fern Triple Time 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the 2 smaller stamped panels to Rich Razzleberry mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the larger Basic White panel to the Rich Razzleberry card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the other 2 panels to the card front matching up the leaf images. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to the card front.

I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then to the inside of the Rich Razzleberry card base.

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings 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’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Theme Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

Here is our Theme for this week.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set. I inked up the stamp with Blushing Bride Ink then using my Sponge Dauber, I added some Soft Suede Ink along the edges. I cut the image out using my Deckled Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set along the bottom in Soft Suede Ink.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the artwork to a Soft Suede mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the Blushing Bride card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow with Linen Thread and added it to the leaf stem using a Glue Dot. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Pink 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the seedling image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the top of the panel. I inked the stamp first with Blushing Bride Ink then using my Sponge Dauber I added Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blushing Bride mat and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings pink 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the envelope front inking it up the same as for the card. I stamped the seedling image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the envelope flap inking the stamp the same as for the card.

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings 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’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Cling Stamp Set along with the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

I played along with the Paper Players Color Challenge #604.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Rustic Harvest DSP to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings CAS 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large leaf image and the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I embossed the panel using my Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered 2 strips of Real Red Glimmer Paper from the Real Red and White 6 X 6 Glimmer Paper behind the stamped panel.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings CAS 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings CAS 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments and the seedlings image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings CAS 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the seedling image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Rustic Harvest DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Gathered Wheat 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’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Theme Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gathered Wheat Bundle along with the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is our theme for this week.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the small wheat image from the Stampin’ Up! Gathered Wheat Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a Soft Suede card base. I adhered a panel of the Gingham Cottage DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large wheat image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the splatter image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink on the top of the wheat image. I stamped the sentiment from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the top of Basic Whtie panel. I cut the image out using the Wheat Dies. From a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock, I cut the small wheat dies and the border die from the Wheat Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the Basic Whtie panel.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the border wheat die to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the large wheat image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the small wheat die cuts behind the large image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I tied a multi loop bow from Linen Thread and adhered it to the wheat using a Glue Dot. I adhered the die cut sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the top of the card front.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiment from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small wheat image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink on either side of the panel, stamping some full strength and some stamped off once on scrap paper. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the smaller wheat image from the Gathered Wheat stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to the envelope flap.
