Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Jaimie Babarczy’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Giving Thanks”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Paper Players Challenge #512. Here are their beautiful fall colors.

I also played along with Double “D” Challenge. Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut one of the wreaths from the Wreath Builder Dies out of a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock and adhered it to a wreath from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Designer Series Paper using small amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped 5 of the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock and cut them out using the Wreath Builder Dies. I cut 5 flowers out of a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock using the Wreath Builder Dies. I adhered the flowers and leaves to the wreath using Glue Dots.

I cut a circle out of a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Layering Circle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of the circle. I adhered the wreath to the circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I made a small bow using the 3/8″ Embroidered Ribbon and adhered it to the wreath using Glue Dots. I added Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the flower centers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the flowers and leaf images from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze Ink on the panel and colored the flower centers in using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Marker. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cajun Craze 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 flower and leaf images from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze Ink along the bottom of the envelope front and colored the flower centers in using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered a panel of the Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Fall Wreath 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 today.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, 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 are our colors for this week.

Here’s my card using this weeks colors.

I played along with TGIF Inspiration Challenge #282.  Here is their inspiration.

I started by stamping the Wreath image from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the wreath.  I embossed the panel using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 1 of the wreaths from the Wreath Builder Dies out of a panel of Whisper White cardstock and 1 from a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  I adhered the wreaths to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut 3 flowers from the Wreath Builder Dies out of a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock.  I cut the flower centers from a scrap of Basic Black cardstock.  I cut 9 sprigs from the Wreath Builder Dies out of a panel of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.  I adhered the flower centers to the back of the flowers using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the flowers to the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the sprigs around the flowers using Glue Dots.

From the Blackberry Bliss panel I cut the bow from the Wreath Builder Dies and adhered it to the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Iridescent Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink around the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front and 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! Country Home Harvest Blessings

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  I have our team meeting today, which will be virtual.  At least I’ll get to see all my team members.

I made a fall/Thanksgiving card for today.  I’m really starting to love the fall colors.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Sunday Stamps Autumn Awakenings Challenge #239.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 2 panels of Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered them to 2 Cajun Craze scalloped squares, I cut using the Layering Squares Die, using Stampn’ Seal.  I adhered them to the card front, overlapping in the center, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed off the pieces that were overhanging using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I adhered a thin strip of Cajun Craze cardstock to the back of the sentiment using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a piece of Mint macaron Basket Weave ribbon, from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set in the center of a Very Vanilla panel using Cajun Craze Ink.  I adhered a strip of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to t he bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 adhered the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to the envelope front and on 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! 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! Arrange A Thanksgiving Wreath

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I hope you are all getting off to a great start of a new week.

For today I played with another new to me set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Wreath Builder Dies, I cut one of the wreaths from a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock and one from a panel of Just Jade cardstock.  I cut 4 flowers from the same die set out of a panel of Bumblebee cardstock and 4 flower centers from the Cinnamon Cider cardstock.  I stamped the flower center image from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the flower center dies.  I adhered the centers to the Bumblebee flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Just Jade wreath on top of the Cinnamon Cider wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the flowers on the bottom of the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.

I made a small bow using the 1/4″ Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon and adhered it to the top of the wreath using a Glue Dot.  I stamped the sentiment from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered a thin strip of Just Jade cardstock using Stampin’ Seal on the bottom back of the sentiment and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment and card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the extra flower I die cut above the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Poinsettia Place DSP to the front of the envelope and a panel 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! Jar of Country Flowers

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  I hope you have something fun planned for today.

For today’s card I pulled out an older set along with a new set and I put my fussy cutting to the test.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Global Design Project #253.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #567.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Granny Apple Green Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Whisper White card front using Stampin’ Seal.  I wrapped 3 pieces of the 1/4″ Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon around and secured them in the back using Glue Dots.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the milk can image from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I embossed the panel using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Whisper White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On another panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Calypso Coral, Cinnamon Cider and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Since they didn’t make a Bumblebee marker, I used my Water Painters with a little Bumblebee Ink on a clear block.  I fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips.  I stamped the sunflower image again on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock making sure to get the 1 sunflower.  I colored it in using my Calypso Coral and Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Markers and fussy cut it out using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the single sunflower to the top of the matching one using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the flower image to the top of the milk can using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set on a 1/4″ scrap of Whisper White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the sentiment into a banner using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the milk can using Stampin Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 3 of the frosted droplets from the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered a strip of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the sunflower image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and flap.  I colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Cinnamon Cider and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored one flower in using my Water Painters with some Bumblebee Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up! Country Home CAS Thank You

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re already half way through the week.  I finally have a day off, my 1st day off in about 3 weeks.  I’m so looking forward to spending some time at my craft table after I’m done with my errands.  I’m also going to decide if I’m going to join my team in doing a Facebook Live video this Saturday for World Card Making Day.  Part of me wants to  and the other part is so nervous.  There’s a link below to join in and watch everyone do their card making on Facebook.

For today’s card I pulled out an older set to make you a clean and simple thank you card.  I will apologize now for my photos.  For some reason Smoky Slate doesn’t photograph well.  Here’s my card.

I played along with a couple challenges today.  I joined in with the CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #341.  Here are their colors this week.

I also joined in with Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #214.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the pitcher image from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the floral image from the Country Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink above the pitcher.  I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron, Rococo Rose and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the artwork to a panel of Rococo Rose 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I then adhered it to the card base using Snail.

I cut out the ‘thanks’ from a scrap of Rococo Rose cardstock using the Well Written Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from the Country Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink over the floral image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Country Home stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of the Rococo Rose 2019-2021 In-Colors DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try.

Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Harvest Hellos Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How has everyone’s week gone?  Are you ready for the 3 day weekend?  Do you have some fun picnic plans for Monday?

Today I have a Joy Fold card for you featuring one of the new bundles in the upcoming 2019 Holiday Catalog called Harvest Hellos.  Here’s my card.

I started by embossing a Whisper White panel with my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Pacific Point card base in the center of the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue with the opening to the left.

I stamped the apple seed image from the Stampin’ Up Harvest Hellos Cling Stamp Set along the bottom of a Poppy Parade Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the apple slice image from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice.  I colored the image in using my Poppy Parade and Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the images using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the apple slices above the stamped seeds on the Brights 6 X 6 DSP using Glue Dots on the bottom one and Stampin’ Dimensionals. on the top one.  I stamped the sentiment from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the DSP panel. I adhered the DSP panel to a Whisper White mat using Snail and then to the front left side of the card base.

I stamped the apple image from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I punched the apples out using my Apple Builder Punch.  I stamped the stem and leaf images from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I colored them in using my Crumb Cake and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I punched the stems and leaves out using my Apple Builder Punch and adhered them to the apple using Glue Dots.  Using my Gathered Leaves Dies I cut out a Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry and Shaded Spruce leaves.  I adhered a woodgrain panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to the front of the Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the leaves along the bottom of the card front, avoiding the right folded edge, using Glue Dots.  I adhered the apples on top of the leaves using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the apple seed and apple slice images from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Dark Basic Black and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the apple image from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a Poppy Parade panel of the Brights 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. The stamp set used for today’s card will be available on September 4th for purchase. Hope you all have a wonderful 3 day weekend and have some fun plans.
