Stampin’ Up! Harvest Meadow 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 Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Bundle along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large cone flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Cinnamon Cider, Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Harvest Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the Basic White panel and punched it our using the Tailored Tag Punch. After I punched the sentiment, I stamped the small flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off 3 times, over the sentiment. I cut the branch die from the Harvest Dies from a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock.

I adhered a panel of the Cork Specialty Paper to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the branch die to the Cork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the cone flower and sentiment over the branch using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Host Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small floral image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampn’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cone flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image the same as I did for my card. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow 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 Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Bundle along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the bottom of the rectangle. I stamped the leafy image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the side of the sentiment. I stamped the floral leaf image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the other side of the sentiment. On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bird image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and cut it out using the Beautiful Leaves Dies.

I adhered the stitched rectangle to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the top of the layered panel twice and tied a bow. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the bird to the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leafy image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off once, on the side of the panel. I adhered a strip of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leafy image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the envelope 3 times without reinking the stamp. I stamped the bird image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Sympathy

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends and Happy Independence Day!! Hope you have some fun plans for today. I’m having a relaxing day at home, no plans here.

Today’s card is a similar design that I did this past week, I just change the image and paper a little. This is one we will probably be making at my class on Tuesday night. I had one person ask for a nautical card, one ask for a sympathy and one ask to use a specific stamp set. So I used all 3 suggestions in 1 card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set along with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste DSP to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Night of Navy cardstock I stamped the sentiment form the Sailing Home stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the 3rd from the smallest Stitched Rectangle Dies, with the sentiment on the very bottom. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the 3rd from the smallest Stitched Rectangle Die. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel. Using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers, I added a little color around the lighthouse image. I added a little color for the sand on the bottom of the image using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the anchor image from the Sailing Home stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Gray Granite Ink and cut the image out using my Smooth Sailing Dies. I cut the helm die from the Smooth Sailing Dies, from a scrap of In Good Taste DSP and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a silver Metallic Pearl to the center of the helm. I threaded a piece of Gray Granite Bakers Twine, from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack, through the top of the anchor and wrapped it around the card front and tied a knot in the back. I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the compass image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Gray Granite Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the anchor image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on top of the compass image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gray Granite mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the compass image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Gray Granite Ink, stamping off once on the envelope front and the anchor image in Gray Granite Ink on top of the compass. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like my card and will give it a try. Hope you all enjoy your 4th of July festivities and if you have off tomorrow, enjoy your day off. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Quick and Easy Card Pack

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s weekend started off? I’ll be at work all day today and tomorrow. Last I heard, we will not be getting snow this weekend, but it’s still early to tell.

Today I have something a little different for you. I don’t have step by step instructions for you since I made a pack of cards. This would make a great gift for someone tied up with some ribbon or put in one of our Acetate Card Boxes and decorated. If you have any questions about any of the cards, please message me and I will explain how I made them. Here are the cards.

I used 1 sheet of the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper and 1 sheet of the Golden Garden Designer Series Acetate to make all 6 cards. I placed the acetate over the DSP, tacked it in a couple places using Glue Dots and cut 4″ X 5 1/4″ panels.

This card I used So Saffron and Poppy Parade cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink and cut it our with the Messages Dies. Adhered it to Hippo and Friends die cut mat and adhered it to the card front.

This card I used Petal Pink and Terracotta Tile cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink and cut it our with the Label Me Fancy Punch and adhered it to the card front. Stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set in Petal Pink & Terracotta Tile, stem in Old Olive and cut images out with Floral Gallery Dies.

This card I used Bumblebee and Old Olive cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink, cut it our with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front. Stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set using my Bumblebee and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers and cut image out with Floral Gallery Dies.

This card I used Pool Party and Night of Navy cardstock and just did an angle layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink, cut it out with the Floral Gallery Dies and the large sentiment out of Night of Navy cardstock and adhered them to the card front.

This card I used Blushing Bride and Merry Merlot cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink, cut it our with the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a scalloped mat from Merry Merlot cardstock using the Layering Ovals Dies, adhered the sentiment and adhered it to the card front.

This card I used Flirty Flamingo and Mossy Meadow cardstock and just did a simple layering. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink, cut it our with the Messages Dies. I cut an oval mat using the Layering Ovals Dies, adhered the sentiment and adhered it to the card front.

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

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Sympathy CAS

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. Hope everyone’s weekend is starting out well.

I have a clean and simple card for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Bundle. I thought after yesterday’s very involved card I’d do something simple. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #626.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches #469.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel. I embossed the panel using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered 2 strips of Very Vanilla cardstock on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the smallest flower from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image using the Peony Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Gorgeous Grape Pastel Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Prized Peony stamp set in the center of a Very Vanilla panel using Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the small flower from the Prized Peony stamp set over the sentiment, stamping off 3 times, in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Very Vanilla mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower from the Prized Peony stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the envelope front and 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! Back To Back Blooms CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I’m very excited to be a Guest Designer for the month of January for the CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge. I used the new Stampin’ Up! Back To Back Blooms Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card. Here is my card for today.

Here are the Colours & Sketch Colors for Challenge #401 this week.

I started by stamping the flower and leaf images from the Back to Back Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the largest flower from the Back to Back Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set on the top of the Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I embossed the panel using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the fussy cut flower to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the matted card front to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Stampin’ Seal and added a few Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the top by the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the large flower image and the leaf image from the Back to Back Blooms stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the large flower image and the leaf image from the Back to Back Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and the smaller flower images on the envelope flap. I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay, Cherry Cobbler and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart CAS

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s weekend going? Why is it weekends go so quick and weekdays seem to drag? I’ll be working again today and I have a feeling it’s going to be a slow day, like watching paint dry slow. Yesterday I worked a little later than I expected, I forgot it was the 1st of the year and I had to do a little extra with my bills.

For today I have another Black & White card for you. I’m usually all about color, not quite sure what’s going on with me. I used the Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart Cling Stamp Set for my card which is a Sale-A-Bration item. Here’s my card for today.

I played along with the TGIF Color Challenge #297.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Heal Your Heart stamp set (available January 5th) on the bottom of a Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I embossed the panel using the Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Heal Your Heart stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the dandelion image from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel. 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 dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the True Love Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my Clean and Simple, Quick and Easy card for today and will give it a try. This stamp set is a free set during Sale-A-Bration starting Tuesday January 5th, with a qualifying order of $50. If you are in need of a catalog, please feel free to drop me a note and I will get one out to you ASAP. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Sympathy Sneak Peek

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s weekend going? I had to work all day yesterday and again today. I’m looking forward to another short week coming up, how about you?

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set to make a sympathy card for you today. This set will be available January 5, 2021 from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Try Stamping On Tuesday Challenge #487. Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the edges of a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Ornate Borders Dies. I adhered a strip of Fine Art Floral DSP to the die cut panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted DSP to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink. I cut the sentiment into a banner using my Banner Triple Punch and stamped it with the large floral image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Pool Party Ink, stamping off once. I adhered the bannered sentiment to a strip of Pool Party cardstock, which I cut using the Banners Pick A Punch, using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the large floral image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Pool Party Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the floral image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Pool Party Ink on the envelope front. I stamped once full strength and a couple more times stamped off once. I adhered a panel of the Fine Art Floral DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. The stamp set and DSP will be available in less than 10 days from the January-June 2021 Mini 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! Touched My Heart Sympathy

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s week going? We’re halfway through and on the way to the weekend already. As of now they are saying it’s going to be a nice weekend, but this is NJ and the weather changes hourly.

Today’s card is one I really don’t like making. It’s one thing if I make them to have on hand, but it’s another when I have to make one special. One of my daughter’s friends brother died last weekend while out hiking in AZ. Dehydration and heat stroke they believe. Young man, only in his 30’s, very sad. I wanted to make a card for her friend and mother since I knew both of them, so here’s what I made.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Host Touched My Heart Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a Misty Moonlight panel. I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I embossed the panel using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder. I then adhered a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the top of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Misty Moonlight 1/4″ 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon around the panel and tied a knot.

I cut 3 leave using the Nature’s Roots Dies, one in Bumblebee, one in Cajun Craze and one in Real Red. I adhered the leaves just under the knot using Glue Dots and then added a Glue Dot under the knot. I adhered the card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampn’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the tall tree from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the tall tree from the Rooted in Nature stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the envelope front.

I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

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

I’m planning to go live on my Facebook page with a project today at 4:00pm ET.  Stop by my Facebook page at 4pm ET to see what card I will be making this week.
