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.

Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air CAS Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already and the weekend is just around the corner.

I have a CAS masculine birthday card for you today using another great set from the 2020 January – June Mini Catalog. I know how we all struggle with masculine cards and this set made it really easy for me.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from the Fab Friday Skitch Challenge #185.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired from “Just Us Girls” Challenge #528.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Always Fun Challenge #155.  Their theme is “Birthday Wishes”.

I started by adhering a panel of the Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Snail.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the reverse mountain image from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink across the panel, stamping off once.  I turned the image around and stamped just below the  first image using Gray Granite Ink.  I stamped the landscape tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Garden Green Ink below the mountains.  I stamped the flying birds image from the Mountain Air stamp set 3 times in Night of Navy Ink above the mountains.

I stamped the cloud image from the Mountain Air stamp set on the top of the panel in Night of Navy Ink stamping off twice.  I colored the moon/sun in using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the bottom of the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the mountain image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the landscape tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Garden Green Ink below the mountains.  I stamped the bird image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Night of Navy Ink 3 times above the mountains.  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 mountain image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Gray Granite on the bottom of the envelope front.  I stamped the landscape tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Garden Green Ink below the mountain image.  I stamped the bird image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Night of Navy Ink 3 times above the mountains.  I adhered a panel of the Country Club DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthday Bonanza for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you all ready for the weekend?

For today’s I needed a card for my little nephew who is turning 6.  I was back and forth with what I was going to do and I decided to use some of the new Designer Series Paper from the 2020 January – June Mini Catalog called Birthday Bonanza.  I wasn’t real sure about the Daffodil Delight for a boy, but I thought it would be fun.  I do not have the Bonanza Buddies Bundle, but sure could have used it for this card, so I had to improvise.   Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #358.  Here are their colors.

My design is from the Fab Friday Challenge #183.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the splatter image from the Stampin’ Up! Delightful Day Photopolymer Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight and Grapefruit Grove Inks all around and over the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment out using my Layering Circles Dies.  I cut a circle out of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the sentiment circle to the Pear Pizzazz circle using Snail.

I cut a panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock using the Rectangle Stitched Dies and then embossed it using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the rectangle to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a thin strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock into a banner using my Paper Snips and adhered it across the rectangle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I made banner ends on a piece of 5/8″ Whisper White Flax Ribbon and adhered it over the Pear Pizzazz using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment circle on top of the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Candle Embellishment above the sentiment.

The inside is where the fun fold comes in.  I took a 5 3/8″ X 10 1/2″ piece of the Birthday Bonanza DSP and scored it at 2 1/4″, 3 1/4″, 4 1/4″, 5 1/4″, 6 1/4″, 7 1/4″ & 8 1/4″ and folded it like an accordion.  It should look like the picture above.

I adhered first one side to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered the other side the same.  You only want to put the Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the 2 1/4″ piece on either side of the accordion.  I cut 3 squares out of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I fussy cut the 3 images from the Birthday Bonanza DSP using my Paper Snips and adhered one to each square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I arranged the squares the way I wanted them and adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue only on 1/2 of each square.  I stamped the sentiments from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the panel to the inside right of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Birthday Bonanza DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I fussy cut another one of the images from the Birthday Bonanza DSP and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a panel of the Birthday Bonanza 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!!  Hope you all have a great creative weekend!!

Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started out?  Can you believe we are at the end of January already?  It’s hard to believe that we’re almost a third of the way through Sale-A-Bration already.

I needed a card for a 9 year old boys birthday.  Anyone that has boys knows that it’s not easy.  9 is one of the ages that they are not quite old enough, yet they are not babies anymore.  You can’t make them a card that’s too childish or too grown up.  So, with that being said, I used some of the goodies from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog for today’s card.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Just Add Ink Challenge #489.  Here are their colors.

I got the idea for my background from my Team Leader Amy Koenders.  You can see her card here.

I started with a panel of Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper and colored the stripes using my Call Me Clover, Daffodil Delight and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the colored DSP to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to a Call Me Clover card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the meercat image from the Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  If you look at the stamp, there are 5 meercats, but there are only 4 of us in my family, so I only wanted the first 4.  To get this, I used some washi tape and taped over the end meercat.  I inked up the stamp with the washi tape on, then removed the washi tape before stamping on my paper.  I stamped the cute little gecko image from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink next to the meercats.  That is suppose to represent my dog.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and Call Me Clover Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the cactus image from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink on the same piece of cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Light Call Me Clover and Light Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

From a panel of Basic Black cardstock I cut a mat using the largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies.  I adhered the stitched oval artwork to the Basic Black oval using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the cactus image to the right of the artwork using a Stampin’ Dimensional and a Glue Dot.  On a small panel of Call Me Clover cardstock I stamped the sentiment from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Die.  I adhered the sentiment to the left of the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the cactus image from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink and colored it in using my Light Call Me Clover and Light Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the meercat popping out of the hole image from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink next to the cactus.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Call Me Clover Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Call Me Clover card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the meercat and gecko images from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the images in using my Call Me Clover, Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP, which I colored in using my Call Me Clover, Daffodil Delight and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers, 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! Tropical Oasis Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Hope it’s going good so far.

I have a quick and easy masculine card for you today using some of the new Designer Series Paper from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of an Early Espresso card front.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to the card front using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of 5/16″ Braided Burlap Trim around the bottom of the DSP on the card front and tied a knot.  I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Tropical Oasis Trinket to the left of the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Early Espresso mat using Snail.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis DSP to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set using Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the image out using the In The Tropic Dies.  I adhered the palm tree to the side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set twice on the envelope front colored  with my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  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 Tropical Oasis Pocketful of Happiness for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the first Fun Fold Friday of 2020.  Well, today is the day everyone has been waiting for, the New January-June 2020 Mini Catalog is live.  I hope you all have your shopping lists ready, I know I do.  I can’t wait to get my hands on some of the new items.  Don’t forget for every $50 order you get to pick a free item from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog too.  I just love this time of year.  Who doesn’t like FREE!!  Along with the free Sale-A-Bration item you get to pick one free item from me worth up to $10 from any current catalog and you receive one Sand Dollar Reward.

For today I have a really quick fun fold for you.  I used a little new and a little old.  Here’s my card.

I started by folding my Soft Seafoam card base at 4 1/4″ and I folded the 1″ side back.  I adhered a thin strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock to the back of the 1″ edge using Snail.  I adhered the 1″ folded piece down using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered one of the 1″ strips of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper just a smidge over from left folded edge of the card front using Snail.  I absolutely love this DSP.  This piece especially reminds me of my Tiger Lily Garden that blooms beautifully in the summer.

I adhered the other 1″ strip of Tropical Oasis DSP to the right edge of the inside of the card base using Snail.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink to the right of the panel.  I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Pocketful of Happiness Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the left of the sentiment twice, stamping them both off the paper.  I colored the flowers in using my Lovely Lipstick, Mango Melody and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the sentiment to the right folded edge using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that it hung over the edge.  I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Lovely Lipstick, Mango Melody and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the flower using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the left edge of the sentiment using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a few Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dots to the flowers and card front.

On the inside I stamped the smaller flower image from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top and bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my So Saffron and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Seafoam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small flower image from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set on the envelope front twice.  I colored the images in using my So Saffron and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  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! Itty Bitty Mosaic Birthday for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Has anyone had time to go out shopping this week?  I still haven’t had time and with all the crazy drivers out, I’m not sure I want to even go out.  I’m hoping to get to the store today at one point in between watching my little nephews and going to work.

For today’s fun fold this one might be a little tough to explain.  I’m going to do my best and if anyone has any questions, please contact me and I will try to explain a little better.  My niece wanted me to make her father-in-law a birthday card using the Stampin’ Up! Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I made this card, but told her it’s way to feminine to give to him.  Here’s my card.

I started with a panel of Garden Green cardstock and made the following scores on it.  I scored at 3 1/4″ down to 1″ from the bottom, 6″ down to 1″ from the bottom and 5 1/2″ up 1″ from the bottom.  I turned the cardstock in my Paper Trimmer and cut from 3 1/4″ to 8 1/4″, 1″ from the bottom.  I realized after I was finished with the card that I forgot to take a picture to show you how it should look.

I adhered a panel of the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper to the front of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the smaller of the 2 strips to the front card strip using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I fussy cut 2 of the humming birds out of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP and adhered them to the card front.  I adhered the bottom one using Glue Dots and the top one using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink on a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest Rectangle Stitched Die and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I fussy cut some yellow roses from the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP and adhered it to the back panel of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed any extra that was hanging over.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP to the envelope front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and a panel to the envelope flap using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you enjoyed my card and will give it a try.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend  Happy Stamping!!
