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.

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

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!!
