Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Father’s Day

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends and Happy Father’s Day!!  How is everyone’s weekend going?  By the time you read this, my daughter and I will be elbow deep in cooking brunch for my husband.  Little does he know he’s got another surprise coming to him this morning.  I bought him an outside pizza oven for Father’s Day and he’s making his own dinner, LOL.  He loves making home made pizza and he usually makes it on our grill.  I thought I would treat him to a wood burning pizza oven and I’m sure he will be loving it.  He makes his own dough and all.  I told all my cashiers once he tries it I will have them all over for him to cook for them and there’s enough room to social distance in my backyard.

Since it’s Father’s Day I thought it was only appropriate to make a Father’s Day card.  My daughter needed one, so here’s what I made for her to give.  I don’t know about you, but I am loving the 2020-2022 In-Colors, so that’s what I used today.

My design is from Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #462.  Here is their sketch.

I played along with Fab Friday Color Challenge #192 since I had used all the 2020-2022 In-Colors.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the father/daughter image from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cinnamon Cider, Ivory, Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a Bumble Bee panel using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.   On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I cut the sentiment into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a piece of Misty Moonlight 1/4″ Ribbon, that I tied into a knot, to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink below the 1st one.  I stamped the father/daughter image from A Good Man stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink, stamping off twice, over the sentiments.  I adhered a strip of the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the father/daughter image from A Good Man stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cinnamon Cider, Ivory, Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 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. I hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend and are able to spend some time with friends and family or just enjoy a relaxing day. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Seaside View for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend?  I have to work all day Saturday, but Sunday I have off.  I was sure to tell my boss on Wednesday that I had plans on Father’s Day and he doesn’t believe it’s going to be all that busy that I would have to go in, YAY!!

I have a double Z-Fold card for you today using one of my favorite new sets from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Sunday Stamps Color Challenge #233.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Just Add Ink Challenge #510.  Here is their theme.

I started with the smaller Sahara Sand Z-Fold card by scoring it at 4 1/2″ & 7 1/2″.  I embossed the front fold using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the larger image from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside View Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Just Jade and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I then stamped the waves in the water using the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink.  I stamped the sand speckles from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Notions Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I cut the image out using the 4th largest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the front of the Sahara Sand card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I fussy cut the sentiment and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the top corner of the artwork.  I added a few Calypso Coral Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

I adhered a panel of the Whale of a Time 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the back panel of the large Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the small card base to the larger card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the back panel and Stampin’ Dimensionals on the front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Seaside View stamp set on 2 different panels of Whisper White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the Adirondack chair image from the Seaside View stamp set on one panel and the palm tree and bird images from the Seaside View stamp set on the other panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, Just Jade and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panels to Balmy Blue mats using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the chair and palm tree images from the Seaside View stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Whale of a Time 6 X 6 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! A Good Man and Some Blog Candy

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We are having one of the most gorgeous weekends here.  It’s been in the 70’s with only around 30% humidity.  I’m talking windows open, ceiling fans on all day and night.  Today is our ‘in person team meeting’, I’m really looking forward to stamping online with everyone.  I just have to go into work for an hour to relieve my cashiers and I have the rest of the day off.

For today’s card my niece asked me to make a Father’s Day card for my little nephews to give their dad, so I pulled out what I thought was the perfect set.  Here’s my card.

My design is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #439.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #246.  Their Theme is ‘Father’s Day‘.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a Whisper White panel, which I cut using the largest square from the Layering Squares Die, I stamped the father and son image from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Misty Moonlight and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock with the largest square from the Layering Squares Die and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Misty Moonlight panel on an angle to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the Misty Moonlight panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I cut both ends of the strip using the Lovely Labels Pick a  Punch.  I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the sentiment 3 times and tied a knot.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few silver Metallic Pearls to the artwork and sentiment .

On the inside I stamped the father/son image from the A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I cut the sentiment out of a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using the Word Wishes Dies and adhered it to the center of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the father/son image from the A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Misty Moonlight and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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!!  Now onto the Blog Candy

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s Memorial Day?  I hope you all enjoyed your day.  It was a beautiful day here. We had a small picnic and enjoyed sitting around just talking and being with people.  My husband was busy with my nieces boys playing bean bag toss and laser tag.  Now it’s back to ‘normal’.  Today is my daughters actual birthday, so I’m hoping to do something with her even if it’s just watching a movie or going for a nice walk.

For today I thought I’d make a tropical card for you using some retiring items and items that are carrying over.  I did use multiple stamp sets for my card. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #373.  Here is their sketch.

I joined in with Seize The Birthday Totally Tropical Challenge #191.

I started by adhering a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Snail. 

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the shoreline image from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the palm tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set, which I colored using my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, on the shoreline.  I stamped the bird image from the By The Dock stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink above the palm trees 3 times.  I stamped the water image from the Stampin’ Up! High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set first in Coastal Cabana then in Pacific Point Inks below the shoreline.  I stamped the small grass image from the High Tide stamp set in Garden Green Ink around the base of the palm trees.  I adhered the artwork to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered a piece of the Braided Burlap Trim across the artwork using Glue Dots.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the By The Dock stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink and cut the image out using the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front, over the Burlap Trim, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Ukulele Tropical Oasis Trinket to the card front using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in top center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the shoreline image from By The Dock stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set, which I colored using my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, on the shoreline.  I stamped the bird image from the By The Dock stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink above the palm tree.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the shoreline image from the By The Dock stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set, which I colored using my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, on the shoreline.  I stamped the small grass image from the High Tide stamp set in Garden Green Ink around the base of the palm trees.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis 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! Thank You By The Dock 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?  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.

I started by adhering a panel of the Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Whisper White mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted card front to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, I then embossed the sentiment using the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (available June 3rd).  I cut a panel of Night of Navy cardstock using the larger die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the larger die cut using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the fern image from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink 3 times on a panel of Vellum cardstock and twice on a panel of Garden Green cardstock.  I cut the images out using my Nature’s Thoughts Dies.

I adhered a piece of the Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon with a small amount of Snail to the card front.  I arranged the fern the way I liked it on the card front.  I added a little Snail to the back of the matted sentiment  and pressed it down on the fern.  I lifted it all up and added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and fern and adhered it to the card front.  I added a few Night of Navy Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the By The Dock stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set below the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set on the envelope front multiple times without reinking the stamp.  I adhered a panel of the Country Club 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! Mountain Air Birthday

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  The weekend is upon us and we are back to chilly weather here.  I covered all my plants last night to save them from the frost.  I’ve got to work today, but I have off tomorrow for Mother’s Day.  How about all of you, what is everyone up to this weekend?

I’ve got a masculine card for you today using some of the new DSP from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My card today played along with the Aud Sentiments Challenge #250.  Their theme is ‘Masculine + A Sentiment’.

I also played along with Festive Friday Challenge #0058.  Here is their Inspo List.  I used copper, green and circles.  There’s also stripes from the wood.

I started by adhering a panel of the gorgeous new In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Shaded Spruce card base using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the detailed mountain image from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I flipped the stamp over and stamped the reverse image in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, behind the detailed mountain.  I stamped the tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink below the mountain image.  I stamped the cloud/moon image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink above the mountain.  I colored the moon in using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the bird image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the mountains 3 times.  I cut the image out using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped mat out of a Copper Foil Sheet using the largest scallop circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the copper mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I cut the image out using the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped circle from a Copper Foil Sheet using the Layering Circles Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the Copper mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow from the Linen Thread and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the detailed mountain image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I reversed the stamp and stamped the image behind the mountains in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once.  I stamped the tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink below the mountain image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the detailed mountain image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front.  I reversed the stamp and stamped the image behind the mountain in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once.  I adhered a panel of the In Good Taste 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! By The Dock 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 you are all staying heathly and safe. 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 Global Design Projects Sketch Challenge #234.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to a Soft Suede card base using Snail.

On a Whisper White cardstock panel I stamped the shoreline and bird images from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the boat and oars images from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Dark Real Red and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the frog image from the By The Dock stamp set in Old Olive Ink and colored it in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using the Dockside Dies.  From a small panel of Old Olive cardstock I cut the shoreline from the Dockside Dies out.  I cut the die cut in half using my Paper Snips.  I cut a banner using my Banner Triple Punch from a small panel of Real Red cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the banner.  I embossed the banner using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the banner to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the boat, oars and frog to the stitched circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the shoreline die behind the artwork using Glue Dots.  I stamped a couple more of the birds from the By The Dock stamp set on the card front in Soft Suede Ink.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the boat image from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Dark Real Red and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the bird image from the By The Dock stamp set 3 times above the sentiment in Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the boat and frog images from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive, Dark Real Red and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the bird image from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, 3 times in the center of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Tropical Oasis DSP to the envelope flap.

APRIL 2020 PAPER PUMPKIN:  MY WONDERFUL FAMILY

SUBSCRIBE MARCH 11-APRIL 10

At Paper Pumpkin, we believe in making a difference—especially when it comes to helping you build relationships through papercrafting. For April, we created a fun, family appreciation themed card kit that would make it easy for you to share your hearts with those you love most: mom, dad, daughter, son, sister, and brother. April’s kit even includes Mother’s Day and Father’s Day sentiments, giving you the perfect way to show your appreciation for beloved parents on their special days with a beautiful, handmade card.
One more thing about this “fam-tastic” kit: The Paper Pumpkin team knows that everyone’s clan is unique. With that in mind, we provided sentiments that would include anyone in your life who feels like family; for instance, “brothers” and “sisters” who have helped you along the journey of life.
