Stampin’ Up! By The Dock for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? Hope you are all staying heathly and safe. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. 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.

My design is from Global Design Projects Sketch Challenge #234.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to a Soft Suede card base using Snail.

On a Whisper White cardstock panel I stamped the shoreline and bird images from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the boat and oars images from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Dark Real Red and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the frog image from the By The Dock stamp set in Old Olive Ink and colored it in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using the Dockside Dies.  From a small panel of Old Olive cardstock I cut the shoreline from the Dockside Dies out.  I cut the die cut in half using my Paper Snips.  I cut a banner using my Banner Triple Punch from a small panel of Real Red cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the banner.  I embossed the banner using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the banner to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the boat, oars and frog to the stitched circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the shoreline die behind the artwork using Glue Dots.  I stamped a couple more of the birds from the By The Dock stamp set on the card front in Soft Suede Ink.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the boat image from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Dark Real Red and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the bird image from the By The Dock stamp set 3 times above the sentiment in Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the boat and frog images from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive, Dark Real Red and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the bird image from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, 3 times in the center of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Tropical Oasis DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air CAS Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already and the weekend is just around the corner.

I have a CAS masculine birthday card for you today using another great set from the 2020 January – June Mini Catalog. I know how we all struggle with masculine cards and this set made it really easy for me.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from the Fab Friday Skitch Challenge #185.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired from “Just Us Girls” Challenge #528.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Always Fun Challenge #155.  Their theme is “Birthday Wishes”.

I started by adhering a panel of the Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Snail.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the reverse mountain image from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink across the panel, stamping off once.  I turned the image around and stamped just below the  first image using Gray Granite Ink.  I stamped the landscape tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Garden Green Ink below the mountains.  I stamped the flying birds image from the Mountain Air stamp set 3 times in Night of Navy Ink above the mountains.

I stamped the cloud image from the Mountain Air stamp set on the top of the panel in Night of Navy Ink stamping off twice.  I colored the moon/sun in using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the bottom of the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the mountain image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the landscape tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Garden Green Ink below the mountains.  I stamped the bird image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Night of Navy Ink 3 times above the mountains.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then 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 mountain image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Gray Granite on the bottom of the envelope front.  I stamped the landscape tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Garden Green Ink below the mountain image.  I stamped the bird image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Night of Navy Ink 3 times above the mountains.  I adhered a panel of the Country Club DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Masculine Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?   We’re half way through the week already and heading to the weekend.  We’re expecting another rainy day here.  I’m not sure if Mother Nature knows it or not, but it’s winter.  We’re supposed to get snow in the winter not rain.  I really need a snow day to be able to craft all day while my family is shoveling the snow.

Onto my card for today.  I’ve got a masculine card for you using one of my favorite sets from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card.

My colors are from the Global Design Project Challenge #229.  Here are their colors.

My design is from the As You See It Challenge #219.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Snail.  I absolutely love these plaids in this DSP pack.  Perfect for masculine cards.

I stamped the fern image from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink on a panel of Crushed Curry Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Nested Dies.  I adhered the die cut to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a strip of Garden Green cardstock across the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals I adhered the strip of Night of Navy cardstock along the bottom of the Garden Green strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.  I adhered the sentiment strip below the Night of Navy strip using Glue Dots.  Using the Coordination Nature’s Thoughts Dies I cut the feather  out of a scrap of Crushed Curry cardstock and adhered it to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and Glue Dot.  I added a few gold Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off 3 times, across the sentiment.  I adhered a strip of the Country Club DSP to the side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then 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 fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the envelope front 3 times without re-inking.  I adhered a panel of the Country Club 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! A Good Man

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you are all moving right along through your week.

I’ve got a masculine card for you today that is very quick to make.  Here’s my card.

I played along with Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #224.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Snail.

I cut 2 mats out using the Rectangle Stitched Dies in Garden Green cardstock and Night of Navy cardstock.  I adhered the Night of Navy to the Garden Green mat using Snail and then adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink above the stamped image on an angle.  Using my Delightful Tag Topper I punched the top of the panel.  I colored the image in using my Ivory, Mint Macaron and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I took a small piece of Garden Green and a small piece of Night of Navy twine from the Country Club Twine Combo Pack and threaded it through the top of the tag.  I separated the twine to give it a frayed look.  I adhered the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel, stamping off 4 times.  I stamped the sentiments from A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the stamped image.  I adhered 2 strips of the Country Club DSP to either side if the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then 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 image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Ivory, Mint Macaron and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Country Club DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Enjoy Life for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is here and hopefully you have made some fun plans.  Tomorrow’s the 1st of February already so that means I have to work in the office sending out our monthly statements.

I had to make one more masculine birthday card for the month.  Today is my husband, my great nephew and my nephew’s birthday.  One masculine card wasn’t bad enough for the day, I had to make 3.  As you know I struggle with masculine cards, but the one I made Tuesday for the 9 year old and today’s were the hardest.  Today’s is for a teenager that I’m honestly not sure what he’s into.  I came up with a quick and easy card for today’s fun fold for a teenage boy.

I started with my Night of Navy card base and I cut 1 1/4″ off the right front edge.  I adhered a panel of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to the front of the card base using Snail.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy Life Photopolymer Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I stamped the cyclist image from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink over the sentiment.  I adhered the artwork to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Night of Navy Ink multiple times with the help of my Stamparatus.  The plate on the Stamparatus is hinged so you can stamp in a row keeping it perfectly straight.  I adhered the strip of Whisper White cardstock to the right side of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the foliage image from the Enjoy Life in Night of Navy Ink on both sides of the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White 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 cyclist image from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the bottom of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Come Sail Away 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! Tropical Oasis Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Hope it’s going good so far.

I have a quick and easy masculine card for you today using some of the new Designer Series Paper from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of an Early Espresso card front.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to the card front using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of 5/16″ Braided Burlap Trim around the bottom of the DSP on the card front and tied a knot.  I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Tropical Oasis Trinket to the left of the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Early Espresso mat using Snail.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis DSP to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set using Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the image out using the In The Tropic Dies.  I adhered the palm tree to the side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set twice on the envelope front colored  with my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis 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! Rustic Winter Woods Birthday

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything exciting or fun?  I was at work, but had a great time.  I love working during the holiday season, watching everyone rush around trying to get all their gifts.  In the mean time, I still have shopping to get done myself, UGH!!

I have a masculine birthday card for you today.  Here’s my card.

My design was inspired by Sunday Stamps Challenge #220.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Soft Suede card front using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.

I stamped the tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on a Very Vanilla panel.  I cut 2 of the trees out of Soft Suede cardstock  using the In The Woods Dies.  I adhered the trees on either side of the Very Vanilla panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Rustic Retreat Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on the top of the artwork.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot.  I added a Glue Dot under the knot to keep it in place.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On  the inside I stamped the cottage image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, to the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the trees on either side of the cottage in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Soft Suede Ink over the cottage image.  I stamped the pine boughs image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the top of the Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the cottage image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set on the envelope front in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the trees on either side of the cottage in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the pine boughs image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink along each side of the envelope front.  I stamped the tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on 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!!
