Stampin’ Up! Peace and Joy for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Hope you are all doing well.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, 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 our sketch for this week.

Here is my card using this sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Peace & Joy Bundle for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I cut the ‘Joy’ sentiment out using my Joy Dies cutting the thin word from a panel of Copper Foil, the mat from a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and the bubble mat from a panel of Night of Navy cardstock. I adhered the Copper word to the Very Vanilla mat using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the Night of Navy bubble mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered it to the stitched panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the other 2 sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Peace & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink on a Very Vanilla panel and fussy cut them using my Paper Snips. I adhered them above and below the ‘Joy’ using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of Copper Foil into a banner using my Triple Banner Punch and embossed it using my Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder. I adhered the banner to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the artwork to the card front, over the banner, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Star Designer Elements to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the bough image from the Peace & Joy stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the sides of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I stamped the bough image from the Peace & Joy stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.

I adhered a panel of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty 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! Autumn Country Home

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the 3 day weekend, for most.  Is anyone starting to make plans?

Today’s card is a pretty quick and easy one for you using a mix of Annual Catalog and Mini Catalog items.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Let’s Get Sketchy Challenge #238.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #386.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with The Alphabet Challenge.  Their theme is ‘K-To use Kraft Paper of Card’.

I started by adhering a panel of Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the pitcher image from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the floral image from the Country Home stamp set on top of the pitcher in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I colored the images in using my Gray Granite and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork on an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a small panel of Whisper White cardstock using the smallest octagon die from the Hippo & Friends Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Autumn 
Goodness Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the floral image from the Country Home stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink and colored the image in using my Gray Granite and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 the pitcher image from the Country Home stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set on the pitcher in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered a panel of Brightly Gleaming Specialty 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! Sounds of The Season

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Today is the first day in months that I am home alone.  My husband had to go into the office, my son is at work and my daughter is house sitting at my nieces.  It’s just me and my dog for the day.  I can have some peace and quiet.  I love being in the house alone in silence.  I am so looking forward to just doing my own thing today without being interrupted.

For today I played with a new set to me and made you a Christmas card.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from ‘Just Us Girls’ color challenge # 549.  As soon as I saw their colors I thought they would make a beautiful Christmas card. Here are their colors.

My design is from Mojo Monday Sketch #543.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the returning Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Merry Merlot card front using Stampin’ Seal.  I cut a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Photopolymer Stamp Set on the top of the rectangle panel in Merry Merlot Ink and adhered it to the card front between the 2 panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I embossed another panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it near the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 3 bells out of a Gold Foil Sheet using the Sounds of the Season Dies.  I cut the boughs from the Sounds of the Season Dies out of a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock along with just the tops of the 2 bells with the holly leaves.  I cut the tops of the 2 bells with the holly leaves out of a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock also.  I wanted the holly from the Pretty Peacock panel and the berries from the Merry Merlot panel.  I inserted the holly and berries into the gold bells keeping them in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the bells.  I adhered the center bell pieces which I had cut from  the Merry Merlot and Pretty Peacock card stock, in the center of the bells using a tiny drop of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies out of a panel of Shimmery White cardstock.  I attached a piece of the gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack, around the top of the bells.  I adhered the bells to the Shimmery White stitched circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the Pretty Peacock pine boughs to the top of the circle using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the gold trim to the back of the circle using Stampin’ Seal.  I tied a small bow using the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it to the top of the circle using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cherish The Season Cling Stamp Set to the center of a Very Vanilla panel using Merry Merlot Ink.  I stamped the pine boughs from the Cherish the Season stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the top of the panel.  I stamped the smallest bell from the Cherish the Season stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the boughs.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the pine boughs from the Cherish the Season stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the front of the envelope.  I stamped the smallest bell from Cherish the Season stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the boughs.  I adhered a panel of Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Brightly Gleaming Lots of Cheer

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started out?  Hope you all have a very productive one.  We’re nearing the end of the month and the beginning of the next, so I’ll be working more than normal.

For today’s card I used a stamp set from the Annual Catalog and one from the Holiday Catalog along with some of the gorgeous Designer Series Paper.  Here’s my card.

For today, I played along with the Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #216.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the gorgeous Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper to a thick Very Vanilla card  base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the ornament image from the Stampin’ Up Lots of Cheer Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I carefully colored the ornament in using my Dark Night of Navy and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the ornament out using my Paper Snips.

I stamped a couple of the pine boughs from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Versamark Ink next to the stamped boughs.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered the Mossy Meadow panel to a Copper Foil Sheet mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered 2 thin strips of Copper Foil Sheet to the card front using Snail.  I adhered the ornament by the boughs and on the foil strips using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered the card front to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the ornament image from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Night of Navy Ink, stamping off 3 times, to the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lots of Cheer stamp set over the ornament image in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the ornament image from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Mossy Meadow and Night of Navy Inks on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

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