Stampin’ Up New Wonders for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and that means it’s time for another Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop. The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies put together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some amazing projects. This month our theme is ‘BIRTHDAY’. We can interpret this any way we would like to. If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects. If you’ve hopped over from Karen Finkle , welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.

For today’s card I used a new  Host Exclusive stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Sunday Stamps challenge #206  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with TGIF color challenge #215  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Granny Apple Green Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up New Wonders Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Granny Apple Green and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the New Wonders stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the bottom left of the artwork panel.  I adhered the artwork to a Night of Navy mat using Snail.

On a panel of Pool Party cardstock, I stamped the small leaf image from the New Wonders stamp set in Pool Party Ink on the top and bottom.  I adhered the matted artwork to the Pool Party panel using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the small leaf image from the New Wonders stamp set in Granny Apple Green in across the top and bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party Mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the girl image from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a Granny Apple Green panel of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up One For All Quick and Easy card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re half way through the week already.  Hope you are all having a good week.

For today’s card I have a quick and easy card for you.  I needed a card for a young girl and I think this fits.  Here’s my card.

I started with a Lemon Lime Twist card base and stamped the front using the Stampin’ Up Sheet Music Stamp in Lemon Lime Twist Ink.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large sentiment from the Stampin’ Up One For All Stamp Set in Lemon Lime Twist Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Berry Burst mat using Snail.

I adhered the matted artwork to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the silhouette image from the One For All stamp set in Berry Burst Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Berry Burst mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Lemon Lime Twist card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope using some of the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try.  If you liked the stamp sets I used for my card today and don’t have them, they will be retiring as of June 3rd.  So now’s the best time to grab them.      Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Stampin’ Up Postcard Pals

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Well another week almost over and the weekend is upon us.  Is anyone starting to make plans?  I’m hoping it’ll be a nice one.

For today’s card I made you another clean and simple card using another soon to retire set, the Stampin’ Up Postcard Pals Stamp Set.   I am really going to miss this set.  I just love all the little critter images from it.  I also used all retiring 2017-2019 In-Colors on my card.  Here’s today’s card.

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

I stamped the platypus image from the Postcard Pals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Bronze, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Night Of Navy, Soft Sea Foam and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on the top of the Whisper White panel in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I adhered 2 strips of the Tranquil Textures DSP to the back of the artwork using Snail.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Postcard Pals stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered 2 strips of the Tranquil Textures DSP to the left side of the Whisper White panel using Snail.  I adhered the panel to the inside of the Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the platypus from the Postcard Pals stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered a piece or the Tranquil Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try.  This stamp set, cardstock and designer series paper will all be retiring on June 3rd.  If it’s something you’ve been wanting, don’t wait grab it while you can.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Animal Outing Kids Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing?  How’s the weather by you? VERY windy here yesterday.  We had trees down and branches flying.

For today’s card I made a Z-Fold Kids birthday card using the Stampin’ Up Animal Outing Bundle.  I love fun fold cards, I really need to make more for you.

I started with a Lemon Lime Twist card base and scored and folded it at 4 1/4″  and 2 1/8″.  Here’s what it looks like folded.

I adhered 2 different panels of Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper to a Call Me Clover mats using Snail.  I then adhered them both to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Giraffe image from the Animal Outing stamp set,  twice in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored both giraffes in with my Light Soft Suede and Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Using my Big Shot, I cut both images out using the Animal Friends Thinlits Dies.   I adhered the giraffes looking over the short panel at the 2 frogs on the branch on the larger panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On another small piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the birthday sentiment from Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set in Call Me Clover Ink.  Using my Big Shot again, I cut the sentiment out using the smallest Stitched Rectangle Framelit Die.  Then using the next size up, I cut another Stitched Rectangle out in Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the mat using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Call Me Clover Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front and the sentiment.  I also added 2 Candle Embellishments to the sentiment.  In case you can’t tell, the card was for a 2 year old.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set in Call Me Clover on a rectangle a hair smaller than the Lemon Lime Twist mat on the card front.  I edged the rectangle with my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker then adhered it to the inside, making sure it was under the rectangle on the card front, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the giraffe and frog on a branch image from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored the giraffes in the same as I did for the card front and I colored the frog on the branch in with my Call Me Clover, Lemon Lime Twist and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered a piece of Animal Expedition 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 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 Magical Mermaid

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers. We’ve made it over the half way point of the week.  Can you believe it’s the end of January already?  This is the quickest January has ever gone by for me.  Anyone making plans for the weekend?

For today’s card I was able to join in with 3 challenges.  The first is Fab Friday Sketch Challenge # 155.  Be sure to stop by Fab Friday and see all the amazing projects and to play along.  Here is their sketch.

The next one I played along with is “Just Us Girls” Color Challenge #471.  Be sure to stop by “Just Us Girls” to play along and see all the beautiful projects made.  Here are their colors.

The last one I played along with is TGIF Inspiration Challenge # 195.  You want to be sure to stop by TGIF to see how everyone was inspired and to play along with them. Here is their Inspiration.

Here is what I came up with for all 3 challenges.  Take a look.

I started with a Balmy Blue card front and stamped the sand/shells in Sahara Sand Ink and the bubbles In Balmy Blue Ink from the Stampin’ Up Magical Mermaid stamp set on it.  I then took a panel of Soft Sea Foam and stamped the seaweed multiple times, using my Stamparatus, across it.  I colored some of the seaweed in with my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Marker.  I then ran it through my Big Shot using the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue I adhered the Soft Sea Foam panel to the card front.

On a piece of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the mermaid from the Magical Mermaid stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the mermaid in using my Light Calypso Coral, Light Highland Heather, Ivory, Light Mint Macaron, Light Pool Party and Light Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  The Shimmery White paper gave the mermaid a really pretty shimmer after it was colored.  I fussy cut the mermaid and  adhered her to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Magical Mermaid stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink.  Using my Triple Banner Punch I made it into a banner and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sand/shells from the Magical Mermaid stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the seaweed from the same stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on both sides of the panel.  I stamped the mermaid silhouette in Highland Heather Ink stamping off twice to get a light image.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink over the mermaid silhouette.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the mermaid from the Magical Mermaid stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored her in the same as I did for the card.  I stamped the mermaid silhouette on the envelope flap in Highland Heather Ink stamping off twice then stamped the bubbles in Balmy Blue Ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card today and will give it a try.  This is a great birthday card for a little girl.  Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up Assorted Valentine Cards

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Well, we made it to Friday.  Has anyone made any fun plans for the weekend?

For today I have an assortment of cards for you.  They are all the same design just different colors and images.  This card is super simple and quick.  I never make 2 cards the same, so that’s why each card is a different color and had a different image on it.  This is one of the cards we will be making next week at my workshop.  Take a look.

As you can see all the cards are kind of the same.  The frog card is made with Melon Mambo and the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch.  The puppy is made with Poppy Parade and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and the kitty is made with Blushing Bride and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  All these cards are Peek-A-Boo cards.


I started with a card base in each of the differed colors. Using Snail, I adhered a panel of either Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper or Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to match the card base. I then adhered a strip of the matching cardstock along the seam of the DSP.  I punched the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch out of the Melon Mambo card and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies from the Poppy Parade and Blushing Bride cards.

I stamped the Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely stamp set in either Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (on the Melon Mambo or Poppy Parade cards) or Early Espresso Ink (for the Blushing Bride card) above the circle or ovals.  I wrapped a piece of Whisper White 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the top of each card base and tied a knot.  I added 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels to each of the card fronts.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the frog from Stampin’ Up So Hoppy Together, the puppy from Stampin’ Up Bella & Friends stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and the kitten from Stampin’ Up Pretty Kitty stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the frog in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the puppy in using my Poppy Parade and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the kitten in using my Crumb Cake and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker.  I cut each of the images out using the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch or the same size Oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. 

I stamped the You Are Loved sentiment from the Forever Lovely stamp set on a Whisper White panel using Melon Mambo, Poppy Parade or Early Espresso Inks.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of each of the card bases.

I lined up the cut image with the card front and using Stampin’ Dimensionals I adhered the images to the inside panel.

To complete each card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the frog, puppy or kitten on the front of each envelope and colored them in the same as I did for the cards.  I adhered a piece of the matching 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flaps.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my cards and will give them a try.  This is a super quick and easy card that looks like you took a lot of time to make. Happy Stamping.
