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.

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! A Touch Of Ink Sneak Peek CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Happy New Year’s Eve Eve. Well, it’s almost time to say good bye to 2020. I have to admit, I’m not going to miss this year. There were a few highlights for me, one was after 14 years we finally went on a family vacation to Disney. I’m hoping 2021 will be a healthy year for all and we can get past this Covid and go back to our ‘normal’ lives. How about you, what are you all hoping for?

For today’s card I went out of my comfort zone a little bit, every once in a while I like to do that. Everyone knows I love my colors. Sometimes I use 2 or 3 and other times I used 5 or 6. Well, not today. Today is Black and White. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! A Touch of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today. This set is a free Sale-A-Bration item with a qualifying purchase. I also used the True Love Designer Series Paper, but didn’t add color this time.

I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the True Love DSP to the right side of the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the humming bird, butterfly and sentiment from the A Touch of Ink stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I adhered the die cut images to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I adhered 2 strips of the True Love DSP to either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered The Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the butterfly and humming bird images from the A Touch of Ink stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of True Love DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. The items to make this card will be available January 5, 2021 from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. Happy Stamping!!

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK PRODUCTS- AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

Stampin’ Up! announced this information related to the Whisper White paper products late last evening:

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

  • Whisper White 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302)
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527)
  • Whisper White 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Envelopes (145829)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock (100730)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Thick Cardstock (140272)
  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301)

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.

Stampin’ Up! Autumn Country Home

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the 3 day weekend, for most.  Is anyone starting to make plans?

Today’s card is a pretty quick and easy one for you using a mix of Annual Catalog and Mini Catalog items.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Let’s Get Sketchy Challenge #238.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #386.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with The Alphabet Challenge.  Their theme is ‘K-To use Kraft Paper of Card’.

I started by adhering a panel of Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the pitcher image from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the floral image from the Country Home stamp set on top of the pitcher in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I colored the images in using my Gray Granite and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork on an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a small panel of Whisper White cardstock using the smallest octagon die from the Hippo & Friends Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Autumn 
Goodness Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the floral image from the Country Home stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink and colored the image in using my Gray Granite and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive 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 Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the pitcher image from the Country Home stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set on the pitcher in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered a panel of Brightly Gleaming 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! Flowering Blooms Sympathy CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone feeling today?  Is anyone doing anything fun this weekend?  I’m working today and I’m not sure what tomorrow will bring.

I have a Clean & Simple card for you today.  A friend of mine asked me to make her a pack of Sympathy cards so she could have them on hand.  She knows a lot of people and is pretty well known in our area.  I actually needed a sympathy card last week and realized I don’t have any in my stash, guess I need to make some for me also.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by stamping the rose image from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Blooms Cling Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink on a Whisper White panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Touched My Heart Cling Stamp Set, (which is a host set), next to the flowers on the bottom of the panel in Basic Gray Ink.  I embossed the panel using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder to give it a little texture.

I adhered the artwork to a Smoky Slate mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Basic Gray card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the rose image from the Flowering Blooms stamp set in Basic Gray Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink over the flower image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the rose image from the Flowering Blooms stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front and 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! Butterfly Thanks CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  Does anyone have any fun activities planned for today?  What ever you do, I hope you have an enjoyable day.

For today’s card I went outside my comfort zone.  I tried a monochromatic card.  I’m usually all about different colors, not today.  I love this technique and wanted to try it out with some blues.  Here is my card.

I’m playing along with Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #402.  Here is their theme.

I started by inking up my D Clear Acrylic Block starting with Balmy Blue Ink on the top 1/3.  I then inked the center with Seaside Spray Ink and the bottom 1/3 with Misty Moonlight Ink.  Using my Stampin’ Spritzer filled with water, I spritzed the block from about 8″-10″ away 3-4 times.  I stamped a panel of Thick Whisper White cardstock with the block.  Each time you do this technique you get different results, that’s what makes it really awesome.  I let the panel dry for a bit.

I stamped the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink in the center of the ink block.  I stamped the butterfly images from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on either side of the floral image and stamping outside of the ink block.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink below the ink block.  I adhered the artwork to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the floral image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the side of the panel.  I stamped the butterfly from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink above the floral image and sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the butterfly images from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink by the floral image and 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!!
