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 Verticle Greetings for Paper Craft Crew

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and Happy New Year to you all.  Hope you had fun ringing in 2019.  Has anyone made any New Year’s resolutions?

For today’s card I played along with the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #319.  Be sure to stop by Paper Craft Crew to play along and see everyone’s projects.  Here is their sketch.

Here is what I came up with.  Take a look.

I started with a Balmy Blue card base and adhered a piece of the beautiful All My Love Designer Series Paper to the front using Snail.  I then adhered a piece 1/2″ Lovely Lipstick Ribbon from All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack (available in just 2 days).

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up Vertical Greeting stamp set.  I colored the stamp in using my Balmy Blue, Lovely Lipstick and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Balmy Blue mat using Snail then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Big Shot I cut out 3 of the smallest hearts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies in Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I adhered the heats to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel, I stamped the heart from the Vertical Greetings stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink stamping off 3 times to get a very light image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely stamp set (available January 3, 2019), in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail then to the Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the image from the Vertical Greetings stamp set on the envelope front the same way I stamped it on the card.  I adhered a piece of All My Love DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  The stamp set is available from the Annual Catalog and the DSP and Framelits Dies will be available on January 3, in just 2 days.   The new 2019 Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Catalog start on January 3, in just 2 days, YAY!  You’re going to love all the new products.   Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up Just Because Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and have made some fun plans for tonight.  My plans usually involve staying home and trying to stay up till midnight.  I may just have to work at my craft table to stay awake.  What every your plans are, stay safe ringing the New Year in.  I can’t believe the year is over and we start a new one tomorrow.

For today’s card I used a Host exclusive set called Just Because.  You can earn this set by having a qualifying party or spending $150.00 yourself on products.  Here’s my card for today.

I started with a panel of Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper, (available January 3, 2019, just 3 days away), as my card front.  I adhered another piece of the same paper to the bottom portion of the card front using Glue Dots.  The bottom is a beautiful Vellum piece so you have to be careful when adhering it or you may be able to see the adhesive used.  I then wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the card front twice just at the vellum piece.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped one of the images from the Just Because Host Exclusive stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored it in using my Mossy Meadow, (available January 3, 2019), and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Petal Pink Mat using Snail then to a Fresh Fig mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Fresh Fig card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Happy Anniversary sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set in Fresh Fig Ink.  Using my Big Shot and Bunch Of Banners Framelits I cut the sentiment out and adhered it under the artwork using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the image from Just Because Host Exclusive stamp set on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the stamp in using my Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Markers stamping it off once.  I stamped the sentiment from Forever Lovely stamp set (available January 3, 2019) over the stamped image in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Snail then adhered it to the Fresh Fig card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the vase image from Just Because stamp set on the front of the envelope colored the same as I did for the inner liner.  I adhered a piece of Floral Romance Specialty 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. I hope you all have a Happy Healthy and Safe New Year.  I will see you next year!Happy Stamping.
