Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Sneak Peek

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.   Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  I have today off, so I’m not sure what I will be doing yet.  We’ll see how the day progresses.

I have another sneak peek for you today using part of the Stampin’ Up! Flowers For Every Season Suite coming June 3rd in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by cutting a Night of Navy card front using the Ornate Borders Dies.  I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the 5th largest Stitched Rectangle Die, I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut partway through then moved the die down and flipped the paper and cut partway through again.  I stamped the spring flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the cut panel.  I colored the flowers in using my Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather, Night of Navy and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the leaves using my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the larger jar image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the reverse side of the small jar image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink.  I stamped the stem image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink inside the jar and colored them in using my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  I cut the image out using my Jar Punch .  I wrapped a small piece of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon around the top of the jar and adhered it to the stamped image using Glue Dots.  I tied a knot using the Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon around the wrapped ribbon.

I adhered the artwork to a panel of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the centers of the die cut flowers on the edge.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered 2 strips of the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP to either side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather, Night of Navy and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered a panel of the Parisian Blossoms 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! Amazing Birthday For The 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 healthy.  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 Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #454.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Bermuda Bay card front using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a panel of Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the panel to a Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up! Everything Amazing Photopolymer Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink.  I stamped the insert words from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink.  I adhered the artwork to a Daffodil Delight mat using Snail.

Using the Ornate Borders Dies, I cut a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered a thin strip of the Birthday Bonanza DSP above the cut border using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the border just below the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the balloon image from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I stamped the streamer image from the Everything Amazing stamp set randomly in Bermuda Bay and Grapefruit Grove Ink on the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Daffodil Delight mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Birthday Bonanza DSP to the envelope front and a panel on the envelope flap.  I stamped the balloon and streamer images from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Grapefruit Grove Inks on the bottom front of the envelope.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Hello

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  Does anyone have any plans for this weekend?  Maybe some gardening, spring cleaning, crafting, binge watching?  I’ll be working today, but I do have off tomorrow.  I’m hoping to start re-organizing my craft area to get ready for some of the new things that will be coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  We got a sneak peek at it this week, I can’t wait till I can place my order.  That’s one of the best parts of being a demonstrator, you get to order early.  If anyone is interested in joining our team, drop me a line and I would be happy to help you sign up.

For today I have one more card using the Ornate Garden Suite.  This was another one I was playing around with doing for my video last Saturday, but decided on a different one.  I made it to use for an Anniversary, but it could easily be used for a birthday too.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by coloring a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper using my Light Mint Macaron, Light Night of Navy, Light Pineapple Punch and Light So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  One of the great things about 2 of the designs from this DSP pack is that you can color them any colors and any way you want.

Using the beautiful Ornate Borders Dies, I cut a panel of Night of Navy cardstock using the flower border.  I adhered the colored DSP to the edge of the die cut border using Snail and then adhered it to a So Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added 3 Pearl Basic Jewels in the center of the die cut flowers down the side.  I love the way the Night of Navy looks on top of the So Saffron.

To pick up the gold from the DSP, using the Ornate Layers Dies, I cut a Gold Foil Sheet using the small frame.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the small flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink above and below the sentiment.  I colored the images in using my Light Mint Macaron and Light Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Gold Foil frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel .  I stamped the large floral image from the Ornate Style stamp set in So Saffron Ink over the sentiment, stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the So Saffron 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 Ornate Style stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored the images in using my Light Mint Macaron and Light Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP, which I had colored using my Light Mint Macaron, Light Night of Navy, Light Pineapple Punch and Light So Saffron 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! Ornate My Friend

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Are you ready for another week of working from home and social distancing?   I’m ready for this to all be over.  I’m ready to socialize and spend time with friends and family sitting together again.  It’s been pretty cool here in NJ, so wearing the mask hasn’t been too bad. Once it starts getting warm though, I will not be going out if we still have to wear them.

Most of my cards this week are using the Ornate Garden Suite.  Last week I was trying to decide which design I wanted to use for my video on Saturday so I made a few extra.  Here’s my card for today.

I played along with the Joy of Sets Tick Tac Toe April 2020 Challenge #JOSTTT016.  I went right across the top and down the left side.  Here are their sets.

I started by embossing a Terracotta Tile card front using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. 

Using my Ornate Borders Dies, I cut both sides of a Whisper White panel using the thinnest die.  I adhered a panel of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to the die cut Whisper White panel using Snail then I adhered it to the embossed card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

On a small Whisper White panel I stamped the daisy image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set twice in Early Espresso Ink. I colored the images in using my Light Mango Melody and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies making sure to leave room at the top for a sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set twice on the bottom of the panel in Early Espresso Ink and colored the image in using my Light Mango Melody and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Terracotta Tile mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom front of the envelope 3 times.  I colored the images in using my Light Mango Melody and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden 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! Ornate Horizontal Thanks

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is your weekend going?  I had off all day yesterday, but I have to go in today to work.  Were any of you able to watch our Ornate Garden Facebook Live Event yesterday?  We had so much fun creating the cards.  If you were able to watch, I appreciate you,  if you weren’t able to watch, you can still go over and watch all the replays.  I think we gave everyone a lot of inspiration.

Here is one of the cards I made yesterday on my Facebook Live.  If you’d like to watch the video, here is the link https://www.facebook.com/515622098864089/videos/240690183743889/

The colors in my card were from Inspire. Create Color Challenge #067.  Here is their color pallet.

I also joined in with the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #491.  Here is their theme.

I started by coloring a panel of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper using my Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive Pool Party and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Using the Ornate Borders Dies, I cut the edge of a Blackberry Bliss card front.  Isn’t that die cut just beautiful.  I adhered the colored panel of Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the Blackberry Bliss card front using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of the Old Olive 1/4″ Ornate Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot.  I added a Glue Dot under the knot to hold it in place.  I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Ornate Layers Dies I cut a Gold Foil Sheet using one of the smaller frames.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, which i cut using the smallest Stitched Rectangle Die, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the Gold Foil frame using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels, which i colored using my Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Marker, to the center of the cut flowers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the 4 corners of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive, Pool Party and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pool Party 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 Ornate Style stamps set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive, Pool Party and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a colored panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Perennial Easter Promise

Good Sunday morning and Happy Easter to all my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing this morning?

I have another Easter card for you today that my son’s girlfriend asked me to make for her.  It seemed appropriate for today.  Here’s today’s card.

My card was inspired by Global Design Project Theme Challenge #235.  Here is their theme.

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #266. Here is their challenge.

I started by cutting the edge of a Calypso Coral card front mat using the new Ornate Borders Dies.

On a panel of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the DSP to the die cut mat using Snail and then to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the crocus image from the Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Light Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green and Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I wrapped a piece of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the artwork and tied a bow.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the cross image from the Easter Promise stamp set in Highland Heather Ink above the sentiment.  I colored the leaves on the vine with my Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the crocus image from the Easter Promise stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and colored it in using my Light Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green and Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Perennial Essence 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. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter, despite the circumstances.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I’ll see you tomorrow.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Garden

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends and Happy April Fools Day!!  How is everyone doing today?  Today is the day we’ve been waiting for.  The Ornate Garden Suite is available starting today!! YAY!!

For today’s card I decided to show off some of the products from the suite.  Ok, my whole card is made with products from the suite.  Here’s today’s card.

My design is from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #362.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the gorgeous Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a Terracotta Tile card base using Snail.  I cut the edge of a small Terracotta Tile panel using the Ornate Borders Dies and then embossed it using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the embossed panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small Whisper White panel I stamped the daisy image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the image out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron and Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to the embossed panel using Stampn’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Mint Macaron cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  There isn’t a die long enough for the sentiment so I had to make my own.  I cut the sentiment out only going part way through using my die cutting machine.  I then moved the die over matching up the stitches and cut from the other side making sure to only go part way through again.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Mint Macaron and Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the scroll image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the  top corner of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and colored it in using my Mint Macaron and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the scroll from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the top corner of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Ornate Garden 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!!
