Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Halloween my fellow stampers!  It’s time for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  This week we have a color challenge.  I can’t wait to see what everyone created with these colors.  Here is what I came up with.

Here are our colors for this week.

My card played along with the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge #175.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the snowman image from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I stamped the main part of the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, the tree and pompom on his hat I colored with my Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Write Marker and the tree trunk I colored with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker.  I colored the snowman’s nose, hat and scarf in using my Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the stitched circle to a scalloped circle cut from my Layering Circles Dies in Real Red Glimmer Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Shaded Spruce cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I adhered a strip of Real Red Glimmer Paper under the sentiment using Snail.  I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Snowman Season stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Coastal Cabana Ink and once over the sentiment in Coastal Cabana Ink stamping off once.  I added 2 thin strips of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP to either side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel 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 snowman image from the Snowman Season stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the artwork.  I adhered a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Perfect Plaid for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  I was so excited to be asked to join in with the weekly ‘Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop’ and today is the first day for me to join in.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week was a fun Sketch Challenge.  Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects, I’m sure you will love them.  Here’s what I came up with for their sketch.

Here is the sketch I got to work from.

I started by adhering a panel of Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Cherry Cobbler  card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of a Shaded Spruce cardstock panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the Shaded Spruce card front on top of the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut out the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies from Whisper White cardstock, I then embossed it using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I cut out the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies from a Gold Foil Sheet.  I adhered the Whisper White stitched circle to the Gold Foil scalloped circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I punched out 3 trees using my Pine Tree Punch, one in Cherry Cobbler, one in Shaded Spruce and one in Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP.  I adhered the Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce trees to the Whisper White circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the DSP tree on top of the other 2 using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a knot from a piece of Shaded Spruce/Gold Striped 3/8″ Ribbon and adhered it to the matted stitched circle using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the Shaded Spruce card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the plaid tree image from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Inks on the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I punched another tree using my Pine Tree Punch from a piece of Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP and adhered it on top of the stamped trees using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the plaid tree image from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Inks on the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Thank You

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re on the down slide to the weekend, has anyone made any plans?  I’m hoping one weekend soon I can go apple picking.  Fall seems to be in full swing here and with fall comes apple picking for me.

For today I have, what I believe to be, a real country looking thank you card.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Color Throwdown Challenge #564.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Mojo Monday Sketch #524.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the 1st part of the sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crushed Curry Ink.  I stamped the 2nd part of the sunflower image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I stamped the inside of the sunflower in Crumb Cake Ink.  I then fussy cut the sunflower using my Paper Snips.  Using my Layering Circles Dies, I cut out the scalloped circle that fit best around my sunflower in Soft Suede cardstock.  I adhered the sunflower to the scalloped circle using Glue Dots.

I adhered 2 pieces of the gingham Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, one in Cherry Cobbler and one in Crushed Curry,  to Soft Suede mats using Snail.  I adhered the Cherry Cobbler matted DSP to a Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the top of the Crushed Curry DSP I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Versamark Ink on an angle.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the matted DSP to the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped 2 pieces of the 1/4″ Copper Trim Ribbon around the card front and adhered it using a small amount of Snail on the back.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted sunflower to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the left side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel 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 sunflower image from the Painted Harvest stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the Crushed Curry Gingham Regals 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!!

Stampin’ Up Birds of a Feather for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop.

If you’ve hopped over from Mary Deatherage’s blog, welcome.  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects.   The 2nd Tuesday of each month this wonderful team puts together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some awesome projects.  This months theme is ‘Halloween’.  We can interpret this however we would like.  Those of you that know me, know that I’m not a big Halloween fan, but I have to admit I had a lot of fun with this one.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Terracotta Tile cardstock to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I adhered the 2 panels of  Monster Bash Designer Series Paper to Basic Black mats using Snail.  I adhered the 2 matted DSP’s to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the pirate duck image from the Stampin’ Up Birds of a Feather Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Light Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  I cut a Basic Black scalloped circle out using the Layering Circles Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the scalloped circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the sentiment to the center of the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a couple of the Rhinestone Basic Jewels that I colored with my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered the card front to a Crushed Curry card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered 2 strips of Monster Bash DSP to the top and bottom of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Crushed Curry card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the pirate duck from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of the Monster Bash DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up Harvest Hellos Thank You

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  The weekend is approaching very quickly, hope you’re ready.

For today’s card I played with a bundle I played with last week, the Harvest Hellos Bundle.  Last week I made a card using the apple, this week I made the apple into a pumpkin.  This bundle is so cute.  All you have to do is turn the stem a different way and you have either an apple or a pumpkin.  Here’s my card.

I played along with CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #337.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a small Basic Black panel using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed strip to a panel of Monster Base Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I cut out the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies in Very Vanilla cardstock and sponged the edges with my Soft Suede Ink.  I cut a smaller circle out of the Monster Bash DSP using my Layering Circles Dies and adhered it to the stitched circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the circle to the card front using Stampn’ Dimensionals having it hang off the left edge.  I cut it even with the card front using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock I stamped the pumpkin image from the Stampin’ Up Harvest Hellos Cling Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie Ink.  I stamped the Jack-O-Lantern face from the Harvest Hellos stamp set on my pumpkin in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I punched the pumpkin out using my Apple Builder Punch.  I punched the stem out using the Apple Builder Punch from a scrap of Soft Suede cardstock.  I adhered the stem to the pumpkin using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the pumpkin to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the Basic Black strip on the card front.

On the inside I stamped the pumpkin image from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink to the center of a Very Vanilla panel stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink over the pumpkin image.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the Jack-O-Lantern face from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink inside the pumpkin image.  I stamped the pumpkin stem from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on top of the pumpkin.  I adhered a panel of Monster Bash DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Just a reminder, the 2019 Holiday Catalog is now live and you can order this Harvest Hellos Bundle with a 10% discount.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Seasonal Wreath Sneak Peek

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  We’re halfway through already.  Were you able to hop around yesterday and see all the amazing projects that our team made.  If not, be sure to go back to yesterday’s post and check out everyone’s beautiful work.

For today I have another sneak peek for you.  Take a look.

My colors were inspired by Just Add Ink Challenge #469.  I just love this combination of colors.  Here are their colors.

I also joined in with  the Try Stampin’ – Or Not – On Tuesday Challenge #420.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Double Trouble Paper Crafting Challenge #35.
They have a 3-2-1 recipe to follow.

I started by adhering a Terracotta Tile panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper to a Terracotta Tile mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Grapefruit Grove card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I embossed a small panel of Grapefruit Grove cardstock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and cut a Stitched Rectangle Die out of it.  I cut a larger Stitched Rectangle Die out of Terracotta Tile cardstock and adhered the Grapefruit Grove rectangle to it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the rectangles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Triple Banner Punch, I made a banner out of a strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  I made another banner using the Triple Banner Punch out of a strip of Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color DSP.  I adhered the DSP banner to the cardstock banner using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Seasonal Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Sept 4th) in Grapefruit Grove Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the flower image from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the sentiment.  I colored the flower image in using my Grapefruit Grove, Pretty Peacock and Terracotta Tile Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut out a scalloped circle mat using my Layering Circles Dies in Terracotta Tile cardstock and adhered the artwork to it using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Grapefruit Grove, Pretty Peacock, and Terracotta Tile Stampin’ Write Makers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Grapefruit Grove card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom front of the envelope and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  The stamp set I used for today’s card will be available September 4th.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Gather Together for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop.

The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies put together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some gorgeous projects. This month our theme is ‘Fall Frenzy’. We can interpret this any way we would like to.  I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with.  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects. If you’ve hopped over from Connie Troyer’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.

For today’s card I have another sneak peek for you.  I used a new bundle coming in the Holiday Catalog called Gather Together.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with the Fab Friday Challenge #169.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Come To Gather Designer Series Paper (available Sept 4) to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a Pretty Peacock card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the wheat image from the Stampin’ Up Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Sept 4) in Pretty Peacock Ink 3 times.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to a Blackberry Bliss scallop circle mat, which I had cut out using my Layering Circles Dies, using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using the Gathered Leaves Dies (available Sept 4) I cut out 4 leaves, 1 each in Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I stamped the single pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set on a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock in Pumpkin Pie Ink and cut it out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I arranged the leaves and pumpkin on the bottom of the stitched circle the way I liked them and adhered them using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink and cut it out using the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the large leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of the leaf. I stamped the double pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink on a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and cut them out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I adhered them to the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Now be sure to hit Previous to hop back to Connie Troyer’s blog or hit Next to head over to Amy Koenders blog. You can also click on each of the names and hop around that way. Happy Hopping!!
