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

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seasons of Fun Host Cling Stamp Set along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Our Theme this week is Autumn/Harvest.

I started by adhering a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal then to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the fall image from the Seasons of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider, Ivory, Misty Moonlight, Night of Navy and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the 5th largest Stitched Rectangle Dies. The die wasn’t the size that I wanted, so I cut the top half, moved the die to the size I wanted lining up the stitches, turned the image and cut the bottom half. I adhered the artwork to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal then to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Playful Alphabet Dies, I cut the letters from a panel of Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow cardstocks. I adhered the letters together making a shadow effect using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the letters to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I stamped the large splotch image from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment . I stamped the small trio of leaves image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small leaf image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth 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! Sparkle of The Season for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. Does anyone have any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all day Saturday and Sunday at both jobs.

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 the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Bundle for my card today along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper and the Cork Specialty Paper.

I started by adhering a panel of the Cork Specialty Paper to a Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and embossed it using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. I sponge some Cajun Craze Ink on the embossed panel using my Stamping Sponge. I adhered the embossed panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut out 2 of the swirly wreaths using the Seasonal Swirls Dies, 1 in Gold Metallic Specialty Paper and the other in Early Espresso cardstock. I cut multiple leaves from scraps of Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Succulent cardstocks. I cut the leaves and adhered them to the Early Espresso wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Gold wreath to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the Early Espresso wreath over the Gold wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut 3 of the pumpkins from the Seasonal Swirls Dies and adhered them to the wreath using Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Ornate Frames Dies. I made a multiloop bow from Linen Thread and tied it with a piece of White Bakers Twine, from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack, which I colored using my Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Marker. I adhered the bow to the wreath using a Glue Dot and adhered the sentiment under the bow using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional.

On the inside I adhered 2 panels of Cajun Craze cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. For the insert I used a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP. I scored the panel first in half then diagonally from corner to corner both ways. The center half score line I folded as a mountain fold and the corner to corner score lines as valley folds. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card using Tear and Tape on the sides of the panel.

This is how the card will look from a top view. The top and bottom portion of the DSP will be the mountain folds.

I cut 2 of the largest triangles from the Stitched Triangle Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set on the left triangle in Cajun Craze Ink. I stamped the branch/leaf image from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie Inks, stamping off once on both of the triangles. I adhered the triangles to the 2 sides of the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the branch/leaves image from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Bumblebee and Cherry Cobbler Inks. I adhered a panel of the Beauty of The Earth 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! 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! Delivering Cheer Fall Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Does everyone know what today is? It’s the eve of the new July-December 2021 Mini Catalog going live!!! I hope you have your lists ready to go. I’ll be up bright and early tomorrow morning to get my order placed.

Today’s card uses a set from the new catalog. I think it’s one of my favorites. This is also another one of the cards we will be making tomorrow night at my class. One of the ladies asked if we could make something fall with this stamp set. I love when they give me ideas of what they want. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate With Flowers Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a smaller panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate With Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel. I stamped the bottom image of the girl from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the sentiment. I stamped the top image on top of the bottom image, lining them up, in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Misty Moonlight and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I also using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the artwork to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then 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 Celebrate With Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I adhered a strip of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to the front of a Basic White Medium Envelope and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card. This set will be available tomorrow, Tuesday August 3rd, when the catalog goes live. Is it on your list? Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Happy July!! Another month gone and a new one starting. 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. 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! Beauty Of Friendship Bundle along with the Beauty Of The Earth Designer Series Paper. I got the inspiration for my card looking out my back window at my Purple Plum tree with the Gold Finches sitting in it.

I started by adhering a panel of Beauty Of The Earth DSP to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal. I cut another panel of the Beauty Of The Earth DSP using my Paper Snips around the trees and adhered it to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

From a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock I cut the largest tree die from my Beautiful Trees Dies. I cut the solid tree top die from a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock and the detailed leaf tree top from a panel of Beauty Of The Earth DSP using the Beautiful Trees Dies. I adhered the Cinnamon Cider tree to the front of the Merry Merlot tree top using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the detailed leaf tree top to the front of the tree using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the tree to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 birds from a panel of Bumblebee cardstock using the Beautiful Trees Dies and adhered them to the tree using Glue Dots. On a panel of Vellum cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty Of Friendship stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Glue Dot and a Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a few Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty Of Friendship stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the smaller tree image from the Beauty Of Friendship stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the detail leaf image in Merry Merlot Ink on the top of the tree. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Merry Merlot 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 tree image from the Beauty Of Friendship stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the detail leaf image in Merry Merlot Ink on top of the tree. I adhered a panel of Beauty Of The Earth DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour Pastels

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and halfway through the month already. Days are just flying by.

Today I have another card that we made at our Inkin’ Krew team meeting on Sunday. This card used the daisy type flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Bundle. Here’s my card for today.

This card was designed by another one of my talented team members Tara Beth. Another gorgeous design. For this one we got to play with the new Soft Pastels Assortment on page 126 of the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

I started by cutting a panel of the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper using the largest die from the Scalloped Contour Dies and adhering it to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Soft Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of So Saffron cardstock using the 3rd largest die from the Scalloped Contour Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of the die. I adhered the scalloped die to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set 4 times in Basic Gray Ink. I cut the images out using the Scalloped Contour Dies. I colored each of the flowers using a different color from the Soft Pastels Assortment and I blended them using my Blending Brushes. I adhered 2 of the flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and 1 using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few gems Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials.

On the inside I cut a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP and Night of Navy cardstock using the scallop edge die from the Scalloped Contour Dies. I adhered the 2 together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the scalloped edge to a panel of Basic White cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Color & Contour stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the 4th flower to the top of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Color & Contour stamp set 3 times on the envelope front in Basic Gray Ink. I adhered a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like the card we made at our team meeting. It was fun playing with the Soft Pastels Assortment, it was a different way to color images. Stampin’ Up! has so many options for coloring, pick your favorite and get started. Happy Stamping!!

Changes To The Upcoming July-December Mini Catalog And Second Sale-a-bration


Stampin’ Up! has shared the following update with us related to the upcoming July-December Mini Catalog and second Sale-a-bration this year.  With the global shipping delays, they will be moving the start dates for those two publications back by one month.  Here are the details from Stampin’ Up!:

We’ve recently been made aware that, due to the current global shipping crisis tied to the COVID pandemic, we are not likely to receive the majority of product inventory for the upcoming July–December 2021 Mini Catalog or July–August 2021 Sale-A-Bration in time for the catalog launches. After careful consideration we have decided to push the launches of both publications back by one month to allow time for inventory to be received.
 
Change Details

  • The July–December 2021 Mini Catalog will in effect become the August–December 2021 Mini Catalog (though the title of the publication will not change).
    • Demonstrator Preorder: July 1, 2021 – August 2, 2021
    • Customer Sales Period: August 3, 2021– January 3, 2022
  • July–August 2021 Sale-A-Bration will in effect become August–September 2021 Sale-A-Bration.
    • Demonstrator Pre-earn: July 1, 2021 – August 2, 2021
    • Customer Earning Period: August 3, 2021 – September 30, 2021

I’m so happy that Stampin’ Up! made the decision to move the catalog timing back by a month in order to minimize those frustrating backorders and unavailable items!  Let me know if you have questions about this.  Can’t wait to see the upcoming Mini and Sale-a-bration Catalogs this summer!  And as always, I’ll get those catalogs mailed out to you just as quickly as I can once I get them in early July!

Stampin’ Up! A Good Man

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on the downhill to the weekend. Is anyone starting to make plans?

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Vacation Time challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set for my card today. I was inspired by the trees in the photo and the woodgrain in the inspiration photo for my Clean and Layered card. I decided to make a card of a man vacationing and relaxing.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #157. How are you inspired by this photo?

I joined in with Always Fun Challenges #217, “Layers”.

I started by adhering a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered 2 more panels of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to Early Espresso mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the smaller panel to the card front using Stampin’ Seal and the ‘tree’ panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Ivory, Pool Party and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Hippo & Friends Dies. From a panel of Early Espresso cardstock I cut the next size larger Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered the artwork using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the sentiment twice and tied a knot. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth 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!!
