Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Happy for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are starting with me, thank you. I hope you will stop by everyone’s blog to see what they have created this week. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Beautifully Happy Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper today for my card.

This is our sketch for this week.

My colors are from The Paper Players Color Challenge #623.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Happy Kindness 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Highland Heather Subtle DSP to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Happy Kindness 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large outline flower image from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the solid flower image from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink over the outline image. I stamped the solid leaf image from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink over the outline image. I stamped the splatter image from the Beautifully Happy stamp set around the flower image in Highland Heather Ink. I cut the basic White panel and a panel of Parakeet Party cardstock using the Deckled Rectangle Dies. I adhered the artwork to the Parakeet Party panel on an angle using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Orchid Oasis cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment using the smallest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I adhered a piece of Parakeet Party 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon to the artwork using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Heart Pearls to the center of the flower and the sentiment panel.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small outline flower image from the Beautifully Happy stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the solid flower image in Orchid Oasis Ink and the solid leaf image in Parakeet Party Ink. I stamped the splatter image from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Highland Heather Ink around the flower and sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Parakeet Party mat then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower image from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the solid flower image in Orchid Oasis Ink and the solid leaf image in Parakeet Party Ink. I stamped the splatter image in Highland Heather Ink. I adhered a panel of the Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Happy Panel Card

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s New Year’s? It’s always such a lazy day for us even if we don’t do anything.

Today I used a Sale-a-bration set that you will be able to earn in just 3 short days, YAY!!! Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Happy Panel 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Happy Sale-a-bration Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Happy Panel 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing the 3″ X 4 1/2″ panel of Basic White cardstock using the splatter folder from the Stripes & Splatters 3 D Embossing Folder. I cut the embossed panel into 3 1″ strips. I adhered the strips to the 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ panel of Basic White cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Happy Panel 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the 3 1/2″ X 3 1/2″ panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large outline flower image from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the solid flower fill image from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink over the outline image. I stamped the leaf fill image from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink. I stamped the flower center and splatter images from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink. I cut the image out using the largest circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I then stamped the bumblebee image from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink by the flower image. I adhered the artwork to the top of the embossed panels using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Happy Panel 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink. I cut the one end using my Banner Pick A Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and Glue Dot. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Melon Mambo Glossy Dots Assortment to the card front

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Happy Panel 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock.

I stamped the solid flower image from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink over the outline image. I stamped the leaf fill image in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal.

This is our sketch for this week.

My colors are from Inspire. Create. Stamping Challenge #132.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Happy 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the flower center and the splotch image around the flowers in Rich Razzleberry Ink. I adhered the stamped image to an Early Espresso mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and Stampin’ Seal. I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

Use this host code when placing an order with me. When you order $50 or greater you will receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any 1 item valued up to $10.00 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog or the July – December 2022 Mini Catalog!  Unfortunately packs of cardstock are no longer an option for a free gift. Shipping has become too expensive to ship and it’s costing me as much to ship as the cardstock costs. For any orders $50 or more I will also send you my monthly class tutorials.  Click HERE or go to my Customer Rewards for more details and to see what this month’s tutorials are.

Please remember to use my current Host Code and make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout page listed as your Demonstrator when you order so that you know that you’re ordering with me and you’ll get my rewards! 

Happy Stamping, Karen

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.
