Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkin for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Color Challenge. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Cling Stamp Set the Stampin’ Up! Encircled in Friendship Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

These are the beautiful colors we had to work with this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of Early Espresso 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim around the layered panel and tied a bow. I adhered the layered card front to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I punched the sentiment out using the Everyday Label Punch and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few of the gold leaves from the Expressions In Ink Ephemera Pack to the card front under the label using Glue Dots. I added a few gold Brushed Metallic Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Encircled in Friendship stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the fern image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper, on the side of the panel. I adhered a strip of the Blackberry Beauty DSP to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the fern image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink, stamping off once, to the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Blackberry Beauty 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! Happiest Of Birthdays Halloween

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I’m still here in Georgia. I’m having such an awesome time, I just want to stay here with everyone. We’ve been crafting, laughing, eating, crafting, laughing and eating and just having an awesome time. I don’t remember the last time I ate this much good food, and it’s very healthy too, lots of veggies. I’ll be leaving later tonight to head back to New Jersey. I’ll share some of the projects with you soon.

My niece asked me to make a card for her husband for his birthday. His absolute favorite holiday is Halloween. Luckily his birthday is close to Halloween too. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set along with the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Cute Halloween DSP to a Basic Gray card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered another panel of the Cute Halloween DSP to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On 2 strips of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I used some washi tape to block off the center of the sentiment since I only wanted the top and bottom. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From another panel of the Cute Halloween DSP I cut out 3 of the skeleton heads using my Paper Snips and adhered them to the bottom of 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 Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered 2 strips of the Cute Halloween DSP to the top and bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pumpkin Pie 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 Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Cute Halloween DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like today’s card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!1

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? By the time you are reading this I will be in the air flying to Georgia for our retreat (hopefully). I can’t wait to get there to stamp, eat and laugh with friends all weekend long.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. A couple weeks ago I told you I was going to a Sunflower Maze. I did go and it was amazing. That is where some of my inspiration for my card today came from. I’ve shared a few pictures below of our day at the maze. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by cutting my Night of Navy card base. I cut the front panel at the 2 3/4″ mark to the outside edge. I then cut on the 4 1/4″ score line up from the 2 3/4″ cut line. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and the bouquet from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the Basic White panel. I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the small sunflower image out using my Sunflower Dies and the flowerpot image using my Perfect Plants Dies. I fussy cut the sunflower bouquet using my Paper Snips. I cut a few sprigs from the Sunflower Dies from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock.

I fussy cut one of the flowerpot images from a panel of the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP using my Paper Snips. I adhered the Soft Succulent sprigs to the back of the flowerpot using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sunflower bouquet to the front of the flowerpot using Glue Dots then adhered the arrangement to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside on a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink. I cut the panel at 2 1/2″ and fussy cut around the stem using my Paper Snips. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the top of a Cinnamon Cider mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel with the stem to the bottom of the Cinnamon Cider mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the DSP panel. I adhered the small sunflower die to the top of the stem using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the die cut flowerpot to the bottom of the stem using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and colored it in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Seasons of Fun for Amy’s Inkin Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Halloween Fun”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seasons of Fun Host Cling Stamp Set along with the Cute Halloween 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Cute Halloween DSP on a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon, which I colored using my Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker, around the layered panel and adhered it on the back with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the Halloween image from the Season of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather, Ivory, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Layered Circles Dies. I cut a scalloped circle from a panel of Basic Black cardstock using the Layered Circles Dies and adhered the artwork to it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. Using my Double Oval Punch I punched out the sentiment. I punched out a Basic Black scalloped oval using the Double Oval Punch and adhered the sentiment to it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from A Wish For Everything stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Cute Halloween DSP to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurposed Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the Halloween image from the Season of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in the same as on the card. I adhered a panel of Cute Halloween DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day tomorrow, but Sunday is our quarterly in-person team meeting. I always have a lot of fun at our meetings and I’m so happy we can meet in person again. I’d love to have you join in on our monthly and quarterly team meetings. Just join my team and you can attend too. Ask me how!!

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used another one of my favorite sets from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Bundle along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering the binding edge of the book fold card together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered 2 panels of Harvest Meadow DSP to 2 Soft Succulent mats using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the front of the Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Detailed Pumpkins Dies, I cut a panel of Copper Foil paper and cut the detailed pumpkin out. I adhered it to the card front using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the trio pumpkin and leafy vine images from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Cajun Craze, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Evening Evergreen, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Detailed Pumpkins Dies.

I adhered the leafy vine die cut to the card front using Glue Dots and the trio pumpkin die cut using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a strip of Basic White cardstock. I fussy cut the sentiment out using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wrapped a length of 3/8″ Diamond Weave Ribbon around the top of the card base and tied a knot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Harvest Meadow DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the trio pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored the image in the same as I did for the card front. I adhered a panel of the Harvest Meadow 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves

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

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. After taking a summer break, we’re back. Our 1st inspiration photo is Colorful Fall. Here is my card that I was inspired by the photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today. I was inspired by the beautiful colors of the leaves for my clean and layered card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us for our challenge #159. How are you inspired by this photo.

I started by randomly stamping the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Cling Stamp Set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Fresh Freesia Inks on a Basic White panel. I stamped the splotch image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink randomly on the panel.

I embossed the panel using my Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to a Thick Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using my Intricate Leaves Dies I cut 1 branch from a panel of Soft Suede cardstock and 3 leaves from panels of Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Fresh Freesia cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in soft Succulent Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies.

I arranges the branch and leaves on the sentiment die cut and adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Glue Dots. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small knot using the 3/8″ Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it to the stems using a Glue Dot. I added a few Brushed Metallic Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaves from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Fresh Freesia Ink around the top of the panel. I stamped the splotch image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink, stamping off once, around the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I stamped the leaves and splotch images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler, Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Inks 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! Penguin Place

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How was your long weekend? It’s back to work today, but it will be a nice short week.

For today’s card I used some of the Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper that you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order. Here’s my card for today.

I used the adorable Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Sale-a-bration Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper for my card today. This DSP can be earned FREE with a qualifying order.

I started with 2 panels of Penguin Playmates DSP and cut them both on a diagonal using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered both panels to a Misty Moonlight card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a strip of Basic White cardstock between the DSP panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess using my Paper Snips.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Penguin Place stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a small bow using the White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Blue Adhesive Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Penguin Place stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the penguin image from the Penguin Place stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the bow tie and hat images from the Penguin Place stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink and the beak in Pumpkin Pie Ink.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the penguin image from the Penguin Place stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the inside of the card. I adhered a panel of the Penguin Playmates 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! Delicate Dahlias

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Happy September!!! I can’t believe another month is gone. My daughter starts in person school today again, YAY!!! That means I get to start running her to the train station 3 mornings a week to catch a 7:30am train. She’s happy to be going back in person and to meet up with the friends she’s met online from her classes from the last couple semesters.

For today’s card I used one of my favorite Sale-a-bration sets that’s available right now. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Sale-a-bration Photopolymer Stamp Set along with Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper for today’s card.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #264.

I started by randomly stamping the large dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlia stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink around the dahlia images using the Masking Technique. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered 2 panels of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of 1/2″ Pale Papaya Woven Ribbon around the panel, adhering it to the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small flower image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink and fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the flower to the end of the sentiment using a Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink by the dahlia image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basie White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the envelope front and the leaf image in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted 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! Quiet Meadow

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How are you all doing today? Hope your week has started out to be a productive one. I normally have Tuesday’s off, but today is the last day of the month so that means I have to go in. First I have to take my son for a follow up appointment for his broken leg. Fingers crossed that he can come off his crutches that he’s been on since June 10th. It’s been a long summer of transporting him around and it’s still going to be a while before he can drive.

I have a card class coming up next week, so I have to start designing cards for it. That’s the hardest part of having classes, coming up with new ideas. Luckily demonstrators have some resources to find new ideas. Here’s my card for today that we’ll be making next Tuesday night.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Bundle for my card today.

I started by adhering a Petal Pink card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I colored a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Mossy Meadow and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers in the center of the panel. Using my Meadow Dies, I cut the leafy die out of the colored section of the panel.

I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a small panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock I stamped the splotch image from the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I cut the 2 butterfly dies from the Meadow Dies out of the stamped panel and adhered them to the Basic White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Meadow Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flower images from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink around the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tiny flower images from the Quiet Moment stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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