Stampin’ Up! Flowering Ornate Thank You 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 everyone is staying heathly.  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 Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #226.  Here is their sketch.

I started by coloring a panel of the gorgeous Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper, which is a Sale-A-Bration item, using my Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the panel to a Copper Foil mat using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of the new Old Olive 1/4″ Ornate Garden Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set, (available April 1st), in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Layers Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Poppy Parade cardstock I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the image out using my Butterfly Duet Punch.  I adhered the butterfly to the card front overlapping the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front and sentiment.  I adhered the card front to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a thin strip of the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP, which I colored using my Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers, to the top of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the butterfly image from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the envelope front twice.  I adhered a panel of the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP, which I had colored using my Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers, 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, hop around to see everyone else’s projects. You can hit the next button to hop over to Amy Koenders blog or you can just click on the names below. Happy Hopping!!

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Thank You in Highland Heather

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and Happy St. Patrick’s Day.  How many of you are Irish out there?  I have no Irish in me at all, I’m all Italian, but my husband and children have a little.

For today I have another card that we made at our team meeting on Sunday using the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley.  I feel like this product medley does most of the work for you.  Here’s my card.

I started with a Highland Heather card base and stamped the leaf/berry image from the Botanical Prints stamp set in Highland Heather Ink randomly around.

I adhered a panel of the Botanical Prints Designer Series Paper to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the front of the card base using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the leaf/berry image and the sentiment from the Botanical Prints stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Highland Heather, Old Olive and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the Botanical Prints Dies.  I cut the sentiment out using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies making sure the sentiment was at the bottom of the oval.  I adhered the leaf/berry image to the oval, above the sentiment, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the oval to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the leaf/berry image from the Botanical Prints stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I did not add a sentiment so that I could write my own thank you note.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the leaf/berry image from the Botanical Prints stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the image in using my Highland Heather, Old Olive and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Highland Heather Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Botanical Prints Terracotta Tile Thank You

Good Monday Morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Is everyone staying healthy?  I went to our quarterly team meeting yesterday. Enjoyed lunch and stamping with my team leader Amy.  Unfortunately I was the only one who was able to make it due to the virus.  I did get to see everyone via Zoom meeting.  We made a couple cards and talked.  It was a very enjoyable afternoon.  Here  is one of the cards we made at the meeting.

We used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley that is in the 2020 January – June Mini Catalog on page 61.  Everything is included in this product medley except the cardstock and ink.  Amy always comes up with the most beautiful cards.  I embossed a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to an Old Olive mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Light Old Olive and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers, I colored the leaves and flower centers in on a panel of the Botanical Prints Designer Series Paper.  I adhered the DSP to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Botanical Prints stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the leaves and flower centers in using my Dark Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using the Botanical Prints Dies.  I adhered the die cut images to the card front using Glue Dots.  I stamped the sentiment from the Botanical Prints stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of one of the labels that comes with the product medley.  I adhered the label to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few die cut leaves, that were cut from Old Olive cardstock using the Botanical Prints Dies, under the label using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Terracotta Tile card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from the Botanical Prints stamp set on the top and bottom corner of a Whisper White panel in Terracotta Tile Ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Snail.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Botanical Prints stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Colors 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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!!

Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s my card using this weeks sketch.

My colors are from TGIF Challenge #254.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of the DSP panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I cut out the small solid poppy using my Poppy Moments Dies from a panel of Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I cut the outline of the poppy out from a panel of Basic Black cardstock.  I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink on a panel of Old Olive cardstock 3 times.  I cut the leaves out using my Painted Labels Dies.  I cut the vellum leaves out using my Poppy Moments Dies.  I adhered the outline of the poppy die to the solid die using Multipurpose Liquid Glue only in the center to hold it.  I adhered the leaves on the back of the poppy using Snail.  I adhered the poppy to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added  Clear Wink of Stella to the center of the poppy to give it a little sparkle.  I added s few Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Lovely Lipstick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the smaller poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top and bottom corners of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Lovely Lipstick and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Lovely Lipstick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped a couple leaves by the flower image.  I colored the images in using my Lovely Lipstick and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Make A Splash for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend?  I’ll be working all weekend, but I’m hoping to find time to do a little crafting.  I’m hearing of a bit of snow coming this weekend and that’s the perfect time to craft for me.  What do you have plans on doing?

We are 2 weeks into the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalog and I thought I’d offer you an extra bonus for 1 week only.

I will send you FREE the Peaceful Poppies Elements with the purchase of the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set or Painted Poppies Bundle.  This is only available from me starting today, Friday January 17, 2020 through Friday January 24, 2020.  This is in addition to my other rewards you can find here.  If you purchase the Painted Poppies Bundle you not only receive the free gifts from me, you also get 10% off the bundle and qualify for a Sale-A-Bration item.   You might not want to pass this offer up!!

For today I have another pretty easy fun fold for you.  While I was on vacation my Stampin’ Up! order arrived.  I couldn’t wait to dig in to see what I got.  I used one of my new sets for today’s card that is available only to Hosts.  Take a look.

My colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #330.  Here are their colors.

I started with a Whisper White card base scored and folded at 4 1/4″.  I scored from the top left corner (by the fold) to the half way mark (2 3/4″) on the right edge and folded the corner to the front of the card.  I embossed a Pretty Peacock card front using the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder.  I then cut the panel on an angle starting at the top left corner and cut to the center (2 3/4″) of the right side.  I adhered the embossed panel to the front of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Thick Whisper White cardstock I stamped the fishbowl image from the Stampin’ Up! Make A Splash Host Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the water edge image from the Make A Splash stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink along the top of the fishbowl.  I stamped the sand/gravel image from the Make A Splash stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink along the bottom of the fishbowl.  I stamped the 3 greenery images from the Make A Splash stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  The center one I stamped full strength, the one on the left I stamped off once and the one on the right I stamped off twice.  I stamped 2 of the fish images from the Make A Splash stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I stamped the bubbles from the Make A Splash stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink, stamping off twice, by each of the fish.  I fussy cut the fish bow using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the fishbowl to the corner overlapping piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels which I colored using my Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Marker, above the fishbowl.

I adhered a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Make A Splash stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink and adhered it to the top right.  For the inner liner I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock on an angle.  I stamped the sentiment from the Make A Splash stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of the panel.  I stamped the 2 fish images from the Make A Splash stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I stamped the 3 greenery images from the Make A Splash stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink along the bottom of the panel.  I stamped a tiny bit of the sand/gravel image from the Make A Splash stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink along the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Pretty Peacock panel using Snail.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fish images from the Make A Splash stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I stamped the greenery images from the Make A Splash stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink along the bottom of the envelope front.  I stamped part of the sand/gravel image from the Make A Splash stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink along the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the bubble and water edge images from Make A Splash stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the envelope front and flap.

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Chic Thank You Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  Well it’s back to work for me today.  After getting home early Tuesday morning (2am), and spending the day unpacking, doing laundry and running for groceries, it’s time to get back into the normal routine and relax.  Vacations are great, but I love my daily routine days.

For today’s card I made you a really quick one featuring the beautiful Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper.  I think this paper is absolutely gorgeous.  Really makes me want to go to Hawaii.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tropical Oasis DSP to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped one of the leaf images from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink over the sentiment stamping off once.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I adhered a piece of the Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon across the center of the card front using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the hibiscus image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I cut the image out using the Tropical Dies.  I adhered the hibiscus to the end of the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I added a couple Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the left side of the panel once in full strength and twice stamped off.  I adhered another hibiscus flower that I had stamped from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Lovely Lipstick and cut out using the Tropical Dies using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.   I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the So Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the side and bottom of the envelope front, some stamped full strength and some stamped off.  I adhered a panel of the Tropical Oasis DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Thank You Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone get to go apple picking or pumpkin picking?  The extent of my apple picking was going to Costco.  It’s not looking too promising for me going this year.

For today, I made another thank you card.  I need to send quite a few out in the next week or so, so I figured I’d better get busy making extra.  My card design and colors were a challenge given to us by my upline.  She’s doing a weekly challenge for our group.  Here’s my card.

Here are the sketch and colors for our challenge.

I started by embossing a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock I stamped the large leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the image out using the Gathered Leaves Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the larger pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I colored the pumpkin in using my Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut it out using my Gathered Leaves Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! New Wonders Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce inside the pumpkin.  I adhered the pumpkin to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 2 large and 2 small Pearl Basic Jewels that I had colored using my Dark Shaded Spruce and Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

On the inside I stamped the smaller pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I masked the smaller pumpkins and stamped the larger pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink next to them.  I colored all the pumpkins in using my Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Snail 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 and colored the pumpkin images from the Gather Together stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the inside of the card.  I stamped the large leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set in Shaded Spruce 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!!
