Stampin’ Up! Power of Hope

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  It ended up being a beautiful weekend here. Did  anyone do anything fun?

For today’s card I used one of the Sale-A-Bration bundle that you can earn  with a $100 order.  I wasn’t sure I was gong to like it, but once I started playing with it I love it.  Here’s my card.

I played along with Fab Friday Color Challenge #182.   Here are their colors.

I also joined in with Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #421.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Coastal Cabana card front using the Stone 3D Embossing Folder.  This folder is only available with the stamp set as a bundle FREE with a qualifying order of $100 from Sale-A-Bration.  Using my Stamping Sponges I sponged Bermuda Bay Ink over the embossed panel to add some darker shading.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! Power Of Hope Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the image out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Using the Layering Squares Dies, I cut the scallop square that fit the stitched square in Merry Merlot cardstock.  I adhered the stitched square to the Merry Merlot scalloped square using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the same panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Power of Hope stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Layering Ovals Dies.  I stamped the lantern image from the Power of Hope stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink, stamping off 3 times, over the sentiment.  Using my Layering Ovals Dies, I cut the scallop oval that matched the sentiment oval out of Merry Merlot cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment oval to the scallop oval using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dot to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Power of Hope stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tree image from the Power of Hope stamp set over the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off 4 times.  I stamped the bottom image from the Power of Hope stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored the image in using my Melon Mambo and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Bermuda Bay mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the images from the Power of Hope stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored the one image in using my Melon Mambo and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers.  I stamped the lantern image from the Power of Hope stamp set across the envelope flap in Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo Ink stamping twice before reinking the stamp.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Don’t forget, this Power of Hope Bundle is available as a Sale-A-Bration item FREE with a qualifying order of $100 or more.  Happy Stamping!!

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! Path of Petals Heirloom for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed your time with family and friends.  We celebrate on Christmas Eve, so our Christmas Day was a very quiet relaxing day.  Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week we had a Color Challenge.  Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here’s my card using our colors.

Here is my card using these colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Rococo Rose cardstock using the Heirlooms Frame Dies and 3D Embossing Folder.  On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the largest die from the Layering Ovals Dies.  I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment on the oval.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink, stamping off once, on the stem.

I adhered the sentiment oval to the back of the Rococo Rose frame using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the frame to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Path of Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once, to the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel twice.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink, stamping off once, on the stem image.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Rococo Rose 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 Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once, on the front of the envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the stem image on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Wonderful Time of the Year CAS Card

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Is anyone starting to prepare for Thanksgiving?  I picked up my turkey this weekend and some of the ingredients for the trimmings.  I can’t believe we’re at the end of November already.  This month has really flown by.

For today I have a quick and easy card for you again.  Once again I let the beautiful designer series paper do most of the work for me.  Ok, so yellow is not my favorite color, but I do love the holly in this paper and I was pretty happy with how it came out. Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper to an Old Olive mat using Snail.  I adhered a Cherry Cobbler strip near the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the stitched oval to an Old Olive scallop oval which I cut using the Layering Ovals Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the holly image from the Free Skate stamp set.  I colored the holly in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers and I colored the berries in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the holly out using my Detailed Skates Dies and adhered it to the sentiment oval using a Glue Dot.  I added a couple Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals under the holly leaves to support them.

On the inside I stamped the holly image from the Free Skate stamp set in all 4 corners of a Whisper White panel.  I colored them in using my Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Greatest Part of Christmas Host Cling Stamp Set in the center of the Whisper White panel using Old Olive Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive 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 holly image from the Free Skate stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored them in using my Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Night Before Christmas 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! Snowman Season Let Snow For Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Does anyone have any plans for the weekend, since it’s here already?  I’m leaving today for Hartford, CT for OnStage.  If you follow me on Facebook, I will be posting some new sneak peaks.  I can’t wait to meet up with my fellow team members and to get my hands on the new Occasions Catalog.  I will be sharing all that I am allowed with you next week and on my Facebook page.

For today’s card I’ve made a double triangle fun fold.  Here’s my card.

The colors of my card were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #327.  Here are their colors.

I started with a full sheet of Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I scored it at 4 1/4″ along the 8 1/2″ side and 5 1/2″ along the 11″ side.  I lined the cardstock up in my Paper Trimmer on a diagonal and cut.  You are now able to make 2 cards with this panel.  I folded on the 2 fold lines having the 2 triangles meeting in the center of the card.  I adhered a panel of Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper to each of the Real Red mats using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted DSP panels to each of the triangles of the Shaded Spruce card base.

I adhered a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP, which I cut using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies, to a scallop oval cut from the Layering Ovals Dies in Real Red Glimmer Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Sparkle Glimmer Paper I stamped the snowman image from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I punched the snowman out using the Snowman Builder Punch.  I punched the snowman’s arms out of Soft Suede cardstock using the Snowman Builder Punch.  I adhered the arms to the back of the snowman using Glue Dots.  I adhered the snowman to the center of the oval using Stampin’ Dimensionals.   Using the Snowman Builder Punch again, I punched out a hat from the Let It Snow Specialty DSP and adhered it to the top of the snowman using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the oval to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left side of the oval.

On the top right side of the card front I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink and immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

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 another one of the snowman images from the Snowman Season stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then adhered it 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.  I adhered a panel of the Let It Snow 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! Christmastime Is Here For My Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s Halloween?  Ours was very wet and sad.  In nice weather we don’t get a lot of Trick or Treaters, so the rain made it empty.  My little nephew’s parades were cancelled so I didn’t even get to see them.

HAPPY NOVEMBER!!!!  Before I get started with today’s card, does everyone know what today is, other than November 1st?  Today’s the day you can purchase Christmastime Is Here Suite!!  You can purchase individual items or the whole suite.  You can also purchase the new awesome Paper Trimmer.  I just got mine and it’s fantastic.  Click Here to go to my Online Store to see how to order.

For today’s card I’ve used the gorgeous new Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper for my fun fold.  I wish pictures could show you how absolutely beautiful this paper is.  Here’s my card.

I started with a panel of Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP and scored it on the 10″ side at 1″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/2″, 3″, 4″, 4 1/2″, 5 1/2″, 6″, 7″, 7 1/2″, 8 1/2″ and 9″.  I then made a little mark on the 10″ side at 4 1/2″ & 5 1/2″ on both the top and bottom.  I turned the paper to the 5 3/8″ side and made a mark at 2 3/16″ & 3 3/16″ on both the top and bottom.  I cut from the 5 3/8″ side to the 10″ side to the little marks.  The paper looked like this when I was done.

I wanted the floral side out so I made the 1st fold on the end down and continued folding it like an accordion from both sides.  I adhered the pleated fold to a Cherry Cobbler card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue down the center back.

I wrapped a piece of the beautiful new 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon around the center of the pleats and adhered it in the back using a little Snail.  On a small piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped oval out of Mossy Meadow cardstock using my Layering Ovals Dies.  I was going to cut out a gold scalloped oval, but I wasn’t happy with how it looked next to the ribbon.

I adhered the sentiment oval to the scalloped oval using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow made from the 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon using a Glue Dot to the side of the sentiment.  I added a few of the new Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the So Many Stars stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered 2 strips of the Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP to either side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP to the envelope flap and a strip of the DSP to the front of the envelope.

Thank you for stopping by my blog for my Fun Fold Friday.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.

Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Lots of Cheer for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How has everyone’s week been?  Have you made plans for the weekend yet?  Other than working, I’m not sure what I will be doing.

I figured it was time to get started on my Christmas cards, so you’ll be seeing a lot of Christmas/Holiday cards in the next few weeks.  Here’s today’s card.

I started by folding a Night of Navy card base at 4 1/4″ & 1 3/4″.  I adhered a panel of Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Gold Foil Sheet panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted DSP to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of the 3/8″ Shaded Spruce/Gold Striped Ribbon around the card base and tied a bow.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the boxed snowman image from the Stampin’ Up! Lots of Cheer Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the largest scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Dies and adhered the artwork to it using Snail.  On the thin part of the Night of Navy card front I stamped the sentiment from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Versamark Ink on an angle.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the matted oval artwork to the folded edge of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left half of the oval.  I added a few Real Red Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots.

On the inside I stamped the snowman image from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on top of the snowman image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base on top of the Wrapped in Plaid DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the boxed snowman image from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in with my Stampin’ Blends Markers the same as I did for the card front artwork.  I adhered a panel of Wrapped in Plaid 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!!
