Stampin’ Up! From All Of Us for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. 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. My card for today is made special for my great nephew. He’s your typical monkey climbing all the time and his birthday is coming up next week, he turns 7. I used the Stampin’ Up! From All Of Us Cling Stamp Set for my card. Here is my card for today.

I played along with Global Design Project #279. They have a Theme Challenge this week.

I started by stamping the tree images from the From All Of Us stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White card front. Using my Blending Brushes I added color to the top of the panel with Balmy Blue Ink. I added the color a little at a time until I had the shade I wanted. I then colored the tree trunks and branches in using my Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the leave in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Granny Apple Green Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large animal image from the From All Of Us stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Basic Black, Bronze/Ivory, Gray Granite, Just Jade, Mango Melody, Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips. I stamped the image again on another panel of Basic White cardstock. I fussy cut the ostrich and monkey images out using my Paper Snips and colored them in using my Bronze/Ivory, Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the ostrich and monkey to the larger image using Stampin’ Dimensionals then adhered the large image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the From All Of Us stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Granny Apple Green card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Artistry Bloom Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the tree images from the From All Of Us stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Granny Apple Green Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the sentiment from the From All Of Us stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree images from the From All Of Us stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored them in using my Old Olive and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the envelope. I adhered a panel of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Warm and Toasty for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you all ready for the weekend? I’m not sure, but I think my husband might be going to cut our tree. I’ll be working all weekend I believe.

I thought I was done making my Christmas cards and my husband asked me to make a card for his department to give their supervisor. 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 very much. 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 that I made. I used a few stamp set for my card, but the main set I used was the Stampin’ Up! Warm & Toasty Cling Stamp Set.

I played along with The Spot Challenge #140. Their theme is Holiday Throwdown (Over the Top Holiday Cards).

I started by adhering 8 panels of the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to the front and back of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from Warm & Toasty stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Snowflake Splendor DSP. I adhered the DSP to a Whisper White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the center of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped 4 of the animal images from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Just Jade, Real Red, Smoky Slate and Color Lifter Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut all the images using my Paper Snips. Using the Pine Woods Dies, I cut 3 of the snow drift dies from a panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I adhered a strip of Silver Foil sheet to the top snow drift using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the snow drifts together using Glue Dots on the bottom 2 and Stampin’ Dimensionals on the top one. I stamped the snow image in Balmy Blue Ink on the drifts to give them a little dimension. I adhered the snow drifts to the card base using Tear & Tape on the top section and Stampin’ Dimensionals on the bottom.

I adhered the cut images to the card front and snow using Stampin’ Dimensionals. After I added them I felt like the inside still needed a little something, so I added a tall pine tree I had cut from a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Pine Woods Dies. I also stamped the tree cluster image from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines Photopolymer Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the Pine Woods Dies. I adhered the tall pine tree using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the tree cluster using Glue Dots.

This is how the card looks when it is sitting on a table, so you can see how it is folded.

On a Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set the the Stampin’ Up! From All Of Us Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink towards the top. I adhered the Whisper white panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin Seal and then adhered it to the back of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped 2 of the small tree images from the In The Pines stamp set in Just Jade Ink and cut them out using the Pine Woods Dies. I adhered them to the side panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the small tree images from the In The Pines stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of Snowflake Splendor 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 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.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!
