Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We made it half way through the week already.  Hope your week is going well.

For today’s card I used one of my favorite stamp sets to create a different sunflower.  I’m not quite sure what I was thinking when I decided to fussy cut the whole sunflower out, but I did it.   Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Just Add Ink Challenge #474.  Here are their colors.

My design was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #323.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut 2 of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies out, one in Rococo Rose cardstock and the other a size smaller in the Rococo Rose 2019-2021 In-Colors 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  I adhered the DSP label to the Rococo Rose label using Snail and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small Whisper White panel I stamped the 1st part of the sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set in Rococo Rose Ink.  I stamped the 2nd step of the sunflower from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink over the 1st image.  I stamped the sunflower center image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the sunflower seed image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I then fussy cut the sunflower out using my Paper Snips.  I adhered Stampin’ Dimensionals. to the back of the sunflower and added some of the Rose Metallic Thread to it so that it was sneaking out all around the sunflower.  I adhered the sunflower to the card front.  I stamped 3 of the leaf images from the Painted Harvest stamp set on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the detailed leaf image in Mossy Meadow Ink and the fill in leaf image in Mossy Meadow Ink stamping off once.  I punched the leaves out using my Leaf Punch.  I adhered the leaves under the sunflower using Glue Dots.

On a strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Little Lace Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I made a banner of the sentiment strip.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Pearl Basic Jewels that I had colored in using my Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend Marker.

On the inside I stamped the sunflower image from the Painted Harvest stamp set, the same as I did for the card front, on the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set in the center of the Whisper White panel in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss 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 front of the envelope the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color 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 Floral Essence Swirly Frames Birthday Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today? Hope everyone’s week is moving along smoothly.

I have a pretty easy card for you today, though it does look a little involved, it’s not.  I’ve used a few different stamp sets for you today.  Here’s my card.

To my surprise, my card played along with a few different challenges today.  First off is TGIF Sketch Challenge #224.  Here is their sketch.

Next is Inspire. Create Colour Challenge #049.  Here are their colors.

I was also able to join in with “Just Us Girls” Trend Week Challenge #500.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering the small Whisper White panel to the Pool Party card front with the tiniest amount of Snail just to hold it in place.  I then randomly stamped the large and small circle images from the Stampin’ Up Swirly Frames Photopolymer Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink on the 2 panels overlapping some of the circles.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Gray mat using Snail.  I then adhered the matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid glue matching the circles.

On a scrap of Mango Melody cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mango Melody Ink twice.  I punched the flowers out using the Perennial Flower Punch.  I adhered the flowers together using a Glue Dot and adhered it to the artwork panel using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I stamped the leaf image from the Floral Essence stamp set 3 times in Pool Party Ink on a scrap of Pool Party cardstock and punched them out using the Leaf Punch.  I adhered the leaves under the flower using Glue Dots.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a Basic Gray mat using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Basic Gray card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the colored rhinestones to the card front.

On the inside I stamped another flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the top and bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the flowers.  I colored the flowers in using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the inside of the flowers with the flower center image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Basic Gray Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Floral Essence stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the leaves from the Floral Essence stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the flowers.  I colored the flowers in the same as I did for the card.  I stamped the small circle image from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Basic Gray Ink 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 Floral Essence Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  Did anyone do anything exciting?

For today’s card I used a few different stamp sets, a couple punches and dies.  Take a look.

The colors for my card were inspired by The Color Throwdown Challenge #552.  Here are their colors.

I also joined in with the Flower Challenge #34.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in Smoky Slate to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped 6 of the flower images from the Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Photopolymer Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock.  I punched the flowers out using my Perennial Flower Punch and adhered 2 of the punched flowers together to make a total of 3 flowers.  I added a little Wink of Stella in the center of each flower.  I punched 3 leaves out of Silver Foil Sheet using my Leaf Punch.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up New Wonders Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate in on the largest circle I cut from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the circle to the largest scalloped circle which I cut from the Layering Circles Dies in Smoky Slate cardstock.  I arranged the flowers the way I wanted them on the circle and adhered the 2 end ones using Glue Dots and the center one using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the Silver Foil Leaves under the flowers using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Pearls Basic Jewels.

On the inside I stamped another one of the flower images from the Floral Essence stamp set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Smoky Slate Ink.  I stamped one of the flowers off once and the other 2 full strength.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Neutrals 6X6 DSP in Smoky Slate to the envelope front.

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