Stampin’ Up! Back On Your Feet for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. Here is my card for today.

I needed to make a card for a coworker that has suffered from a heart attach this past weekend. I immediately thought about the Stampin’ Up! Back On Your Feet Cling Stamp Set to go with our sketch. Here is our sketch for this weeks challenge.

I started by adhering a panel of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut another panel of Forever Greenery DSP using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the turtle image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Just Jade, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a scalloped square from a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies and adhered the artwork to it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Back On Your Feet stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Pretty Peacock Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sloth image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel and colored it in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Shaded Spruce and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of Forever Greenery DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap. I stamped the turtle image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Just Jade, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin’ Up! Soar Confidently Masculine Card.

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend.

It’s time for another Inspiration Challenge from The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Daring To Dream challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Soar Confidently Cling Stamp Set for my card today along with some World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper and the World Map Dies.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us and play along. How does this photo inspire you?

I started by embossing a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. I cut a panel of World of Good Specialty DSP in 3 using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the stitched rectangles to the embossed card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I threaded a piece of 1/4″ Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim with one of the Antique Slides from the Antique Corner & Slides Embellishments and adhered the trim to the back of the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

Using the World Map Dies I cut a globe stand from a panel of Brass Foil Sheet. I cut the globe from a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock and the detailed globe from a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock. I adhered the detailed globe to the solid globe using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the globe into the Brass Foil stand using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the globe to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the airplane image from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off 3 times. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside is stamped the sentiment from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the airplane image from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the airplane image from the Soar Confidently stamp set on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the World of Good 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment Masculine Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend.

I’ve made a masculine card for you today. As most of you know, I have a little trouble with masculine cards. We’ve got a couple new sets in the January – June 2021 Mini Catalog that help me out. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment Cling Stamp Set for today’s card along with In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste DSP to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Seal. On another panel of In Good Taste DSP, I stamped one of the images from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped the small seed image from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, around the stamped image. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the whirlybird image from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink randomly around. I embossed the strip using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder then cut it using my Banner Triple Punch. I wrapped a piece of the Early Espresso 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim around the top of the banner and tied a knot. I adhered the banner to the card front overlapping the artwork, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Tasteful Labels Dies. I cut the one side straight using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the pod image from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink in the corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pod and seed images from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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! Mountain Air for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects.
Here is our sketch for this week

Here is my card using this sketch.

I pulled out a bundle from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog for today’s card, the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Bundle. I thought it made a nice wintery masculine birthday card.

I started by stamping the mountain image from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the same panel. I cut both image out using the Majestic Mountain Dies.

On a smaller panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the mountains from the Mountain Air stamp set in Gray Granite Ink in the center of the panel. I stamped the cloud image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Gray Granite Ink, stamping off once. I colored the moon/sun in using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the die cut mountains over the stamped mountains using Stampin’ Dimensionals, then I adhered the die cut trees to the bottom of the panel overlapping the mountains using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the bottom only. I adhered the artwork to a Garden Green panel on an angle using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink.

Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful Birthday CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Hope your weekend has started off wonderful. I’m at my virtual OnStage event this weekend. Even though I’m home, I’m still having a lot of fun and learning a lot. I’ll share the projects we made next week with you.

I have a masculine Clean and Simple card for you today using just Stamps, Ink and Paper. Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #618. Here are their colors.

I played along with the Paper Craft Crew Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #400. Here is their board. I went across the top.

I also played along with Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #257. Their theme is ‘Birthday for an Adult Male’.

I also joined in with Just Add Ink Challenge #530. Their challenge is Stamps-Ink-Paper.

I stamped the tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I stamped the leaves image from Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink. I stamped the birdhouse image from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink hanging from the tree. I stamped the grass image from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Old Olive Ink, stamped off once, on the bottom of the panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink on the top of the Very Vanilla panel.

I adhered the card front to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Soft Suede card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Best Year stamp set in Old Olive Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the birdhouse image from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I stamped the leaves image from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 grass image from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Old Olive Ink, stamping off once, across the bottom of the envelope front. I stamped the leaves image from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink along the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped a partial tree image from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set on both sides of the envelope flap in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the leaves in Terracotta Tile Ink on the branches.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my CAS card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Hope you are all doing well and staying healthy.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
Here is our sketch for this week.

I decided to make a masculine card with this sketch. Here’s my card using this sketch.

I played along with The Card Concept Challenge #141 (Around The World). Here is their theme.

I also played along with Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #255. Their challenge is CAS (Clean and Simple)

I started by adhering a panel of World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue. I added 4 of the Antique Corners from the Antique Corners and Slides Elements using Glue Dots.

I cut a panel of the World of Good Specialty DSP using the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of World of Good Specialty DSP I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful World stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the quill image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the World of Good Specialty DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Brass Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I adhered a strip of the World of Good Specialty DSP to the envelope front.

I adhered a panel of the World of Good Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Haunted Birthday

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  It was a gorgeous 55 degrees when I awoke this morning, but it was still dark out 😦  I have the windows open, the attic fan on and it is absolutely beautiful sunny day outside.   Yesterday I went to the farm to pick sunflowers, they neglected to tell us that there were no more to pick when we asked.  Instead I picked some Cockscomb, Zinnias and tomatoes.  I also came home with  a big bag full of basil that I spent a couple hours making pesto and freezing the containers.  I think I’m set for just a little while now.  Whatever basil grows now in my pots I will make pesto and use it, seems my family really likes it.

For today’s card it might look like a Halloween card, but it’s actually a birthday card.  My nieces husband loves Halloween and she wanted me to make him a birthday card.  They go all out with decorating for Halloween like I do for Christmas.  Here’s today’s card.

I had a lot of scraps of my Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper so I decided to put it on a card.  I cut 1/2″ strips of the DSP, Blackberry Bliss cardstock and Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I adhered the strips to a Basic Black panel using Stamp[in’ Seal.  Once all the strips were adhered, I cut the panel down to a 3 3/4″ X 5″ panel.

I stamped the large pumpkin image from the Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I stamped the face in the center of the pumpkin and punched it out using my Apple Builder Punch.  I cut the stem out of a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the spider web image from the Stampn’ Up! Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the image out using the Celebration Labels Dies.  On the same panel, I stamped multiple of the spider image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut them out using the Celebration Labels Dies.  I drew lines coming down from the spider web using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker then adhered the label to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the pumpkin to the label using Stampin’ Dimensionals and all the spiders using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I embossed a panel of the Copper Brushed Metallic cardstock using the  Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on an angle.  I adhered the card front to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Iridescent Pearls to the card front and brushed the spiders with some Clear Wink of Stella.

On the inside, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped  the spider web from the Celebration Tidings stamp set on the top of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in the center of the panel and the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set below the 1st sentiment.  I stamped the spider image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set around the sentiment and drew lines using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker from the web to the spiders.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  In Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped the spider web and spiders from the Celebration Tidings stamp set on the envelope front and drew lines from the web to the spiders using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the leftover scraps of Plaid Tidings 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!!

And just like the name suggests, our Magnetic Cutting Plates have fully-magnetic surfaces to make it easy to securely position your dies and keep them in place.

Here are our colors for this week.

Here is my card using these colors.

My design is from Fusion Card Challenge.  I chose to use just the sketch.  Here is their challenge.

I also played along with Daisy Chain Challenge #44.  Their Theme is ‘For Boys/Men’.

I joined in with Global Design Project #255.  They have a Theme Challenge this week. Here’s their theme.

I started by embossing an Early Espresso panel using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. 

I cut a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper using my Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I adhered the die to the side of the embossed panel, hanging over the edge a bit, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, leaving a spot to insert the sentiment under the die.  I trimmed the edge of the DSP using my Paper Trimmer.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment just under the die cut using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the leaf images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set 2 times each.  I stamped the outline of the maple leaves in Cajun Craze Ink and the outline of the oak leaves in Mint Macaron Ink.  I then stamped the fill image from the maple leaf in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once over the outline images.  I stamped the fill image from the oak leaf in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once over the outline images.  I stamped the outline image of the acorn from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the top of the acorn fill image in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once over the outline image.  I stamped the bottom section of the acorn in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once over the outline image.  I cut the leaves and the acorn out using my Autumn Punch Pack.  I adhered the maple leaves to the right side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the bottom one and a Stampin’ Dimensional for the top leaf.  I adhered the oak leaves and the acorn to the left side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the bottom leaf, a Stampin’ Dimensional for the acorn and a Glue Dot for the top leaf.  I made a double loop bow using Linen Thread and adhered it to the top of the acorn using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the outline of the maple leaf from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink next to the sentiment.  I stamped the fill image of the maple leaf in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once, over the outline image.  I stamped the outline of the oak leaf from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink.  I stamped the fill image of the oak leaf in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once, over the outlined image.  I stamped the acorn image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink below the oak leaf.  I stamped the top of the acorn fill image in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once, over the outline image.  I stamped the bottom fill image of the acorn in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, over the outlined image.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leaf and acorn images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set along the bottom front of the envelope the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Are you all ready to tackle another week?  Tomorrow is a very exciting day for me.  It’s the day we demonstrators get to register for our OnStage event and I’m suppose to be heading to the beach for the day.  One of the greatest perks of being a demonstrator is that we get to attend these conventions, see new items coming, get the catalog early,  have a wonderful prize patrol and best of all get to spend time with our fellow demonstrators. This year will be a little different since they are doing everything virtually.  It will still be fun I’m sure.  I wish I had a larger house, I’d have my local team members over and we could all attend virtually together.  I’m going to miss getting together with my team, it’s such an awesome group of people.

For today I’ve made you a masculine card using the set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #447.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Mossy Meadow card front using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered a panel of the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Very Vanilla mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the matted panel to the embossed card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I cut the sentiment out using one of the squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to a Brass Foil Sheet mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a piece of the Early Espresso 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim to the card front using a couple Glue Dots.  I adhered the matted sentiment over the trim using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful World stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the quill image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink above the sentiment.  I stamped the ink pot image from the Beautiful World stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the quill and ink pot images from the Beautiful World stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the World of Good 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. Happy Stamping!!
