Stampin’ Up! Birds Of A Feather Thanksgiving Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re just about to the weekend, hope everyone is planning something fun.

Today’s card is another one we made at my Stamp Camp Tuesday night.  We made a Halloween card, a couple fall cards and a Thanksgiving card.  Next month is all Christmas cards.  Everyone had fun making this one.  If you live in my area and are interested in attending my classes, drop me a line.  I’d love to have you. Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock to a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I embossed the matted panel using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a small panel of Crumb Cake cardstock to the center of the embossed panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the turkey image from the Stampin’ Up! Birds of a Feather Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I adhered the artwork over the Crumb Cake panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the layered artwork to the top of a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I used the next size larger Stitched Nested Labels Dies to cut out a Mint Macaron mat.  I adhered the sentiment to the mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dot to the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the turkey image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set on the right of the sentiment peaking in and colored it the same as I did for the artwork on the card front.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the turkey image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the artwork on the card front with the Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather 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! Beauty and Joy For Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

 

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and you know what that means, Blog Hop Day!!  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.  The theme this month is “Giving Thanks”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set to create a Thanksgiving card.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with the Inspire. Create Challenge #053.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Just Us Girls Word Week #508.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flowerpot image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink.  I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Early Espresso Ink above the flowerpot stamping off once.  I stamped the leaves image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the tree trunk.  I cut the image out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  For the banner I had to get a little creative.  I stamped the banner from the Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas Cling Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I used my Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker to color just the banner part of the stamp in.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink inside the banner.  I cut the banner out using the Christmas Cardinal Dies.  I adhered the banner to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut out some leaves using the Nature’s Roots Dies in Merry Merlot cardstock.  I adhered 3 of the leaves under the artwork using Glue Dots.  I adhered the cluster of leaves under the sentiment using Glue Dots.  I tied a small bow using the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread that comes in the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack, and adhered it to the cluster of leaves using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampn’ Up! A wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Cling Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink, stamping off once, around the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered another one of the die cut leaves by the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tree image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather 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. Now be sure to hit Previous to hop back to Amy Koenders blog or hit Next to head over to Mary Deatherage’s blog. You can also click on each of the names and hop around that way. Happy Hopping!!

Stampin’ Up! Everything Amazing for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend?  It’s here ready or not.  Is anyone making any plans?  Tomorrow is World Card Making Day, I hope you will be able to join my team in watching our Facebook Live videos.  They will be starting at 9am and continue until 9pm.  The link is below how to join or find us.

For today’s card I have a gate fold that I turned.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #324.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering 2 panels of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to Pretty Peacock mats using Snail.  I adhered both panels to the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up! Everything Amazing Photopolymer Stamp Set in Terracotta Tile Ink.  I stamped the 2 smaller sentiment from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink on the larger image.  I adhered the artwork panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I cut leaves out using the Seasonal Layers Dies in Grapefruit Grove, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Terracotta Tile cardstocks.  I adhered the leaves to the artwork back and front using Glue Dots.  I added a couple 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the artwork.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only to the left half of the panel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Terracotta Tile Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink, stamping off once, on either side of the sentient and over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I finished my card by decorating a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Grapefruit Grove and Terracotta Tile Ink across the bottom of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather 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.  Please don’t forget to hop on and watch us on our Facebook Lives videos tomorrow.  I will be going live at 4pm.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Thanksgiving Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and Happy October.  I can’t believe it’s October already, seams like it was just May.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Mine has started off pretty good.

For today I’ve made you a Thanksgiving card.  I don’t send out that many, just to a few special people.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with a couple challenges.  First off is The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #461.  Here is their challenge.  I went diagonally from the top left to the bottom right.

Next I played along with Try Stamping On Tuesday Challenge #427.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a smaller panel of Come To Gather DSP to an Early Espresso mat using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the larger pumpkin image from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set using Early Espresso Ink stamping off 3 times and cut the pumpkin out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I stamped the smaller pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Pretty Peacock Ink stamping off once and cut it out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I cut out 2 Mint Macaron and 2 Pretty Peacock leaves using the Gathered Leaves Dies.

I arranged the leaves on the bottom of the small DSP panel using Glue Dots.  I added a piece of the Crumb Cake 5/8″ ribbon with satin edge from the Come To Gather Ribbon  Combo Pack over the leaves and added the pumpkins on top of the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a thin strip of Whisper White I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White strip to a strip of Early Espresso cardstock using Snail and made a banner out of it.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Early Espresso Ink over the sentiment stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the smaller pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I masked the image and stamped the larger pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off 3 times, over the smaller pumpkin image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Snail and adhered it to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the smaller pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the envelope front stamping off once.  I masked the image and stamped the larger pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Early Espresso Ink over the smaller image, stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Early Espresso Ink stamping off 3 times, twice on the bottom of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather 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! Winter Woods Fall Thank You

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  I want to first start by thanking everyone for all your kind words, encouragement and sympathy cards.   I am part of one of the best communities around.  You have all helped me so much at this very sad time in my life and I will never be able to thank all of you enough.  I am truly blessed to have you!!

I have a fall thank you card for you all today.  My sketch and colors were part of my uplines challenge that she is doing for the month of October.  Here is my card

I started by adhering a panel of Pumpkin Pie Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Pumpkin Pie card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a small panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Merry Merlot mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I adhered the artwork to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut out 3 leaves from the Gathered Leaves Dies, one in Blackberry Bliss, one in Merry Merlot and the last in Pumpkin Pie cardstocks.  These dies are perfect because they don’t only cut the leave out, but they emboss the vines in the leaves too.  I adhered a piece of the 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon across the artwork using Snail.  I adhered the leaves on top of the ribbon using Stampin’  Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on either side of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink in top center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pumpkin Pie card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I finished my card by decorating a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather 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! Birds of a Feather Thanksgiving for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend?  I hope you are making some fun plans.  I love this time of year when the air is a little cooler and the leaves are starting to change.  We’re having nice cool nights and very pleasant days right now.

For today I have a quick fun fold for you.  Actually the only part that has the fold is the Designer Series Paper.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by the Fab Friday Challenge #172.  Here are their colors. Love these gorgeous fall colors.

I started out by folding my Come To Gather Designer Series Paper.  On the 5 3/8″ side I cut up 2″ at the 2 11/16″ mark.  I scored from each of the corners on an angle to the cut line and folded on the scored lines.

On the right center edge of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the turkey image from the Stampin’ Up! Birds of a Feather Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the turkey image in using my Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the folded DSP to the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Cajun Craze  card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Nested Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow that I made from the Mint Macaron Nature’s Twine using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels that I colored using my Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend Marker.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I stamped the turkey image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the turkey in the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the turkey image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the turkey in the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather 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 have a fun filled weekend.  See you Monday. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We made it half way through the week already.  Hope your week is going well.

For today’s card I used one of my favorite stamp sets to create a different sunflower.  I’m not quite sure what I was thinking when I decided to fussy cut the whole sunflower out, but I did it.   Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Just Add Ink Challenge #474.  Here are their colors.

My design was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #323.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut 2 of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies out, one in Rococo Rose cardstock and the other a size smaller in the Rococo Rose 2019-2021 In-Colors 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  I adhered the DSP label to the Rococo Rose label using Snail and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small Whisper White panel I stamped the 1st part of the sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set in Rococo Rose Ink.  I stamped the 2nd step of the sunflower from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink over the 1st image.  I stamped the sunflower center image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the sunflower seed image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I then fussy cut the sunflower out using my Paper Snips.  I adhered Stampin’ Dimensionals. to the back of the sunflower and added some of the Rose Metallic Thread to it so that it was sneaking out all around the sunflower.  I adhered the sunflower to the card front.  I stamped 3 of the leaf images from the Painted Harvest stamp set on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the detailed leaf image in Mossy Meadow Ink and the fill in leaf image in Mossy Meadow Ink stamping off once.  I punched the leaves out using my Leaf Punch.  I adhered the leaves under the sunflower using Glue Dots.

On a strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Little Lace Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I made a banner of the sentiment strip.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Pearl Basic Jewels that I had colored in using my Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend Marker.

On the inside I stamped the sunflower image from the Painted Harvest stamp set, the same as I did for the card front, on the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set in the center of the Whisper White panel in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel 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 sunflower image from the Painted Harvest stamp set on the front of the envelope the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 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!!
