Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Mother’s Day Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Is everyone holding out ok with the social distancing?  Is anyone able to work from home?  Unfortunately both my jobs outside the house I can not work from home, so I’m taking all precautions necessary.

I have another card today using the Ornate Style Suite.  Take a look.

My colors were inspired by Color Throwdown Challenge #585.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #117.  Their theme is ‘Spring Flowers’.

I started by stamping the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I colored only part of the image in using my Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I brushed the Calypso Coral flowers using my Clear Wink of Stella to give it a little shimmer.

I cut a Pretty Peacock frame using my Ornate Layers Dies and cut the center out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the artwork to a Calypso Coral card base using Snail and the frame on top of the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Classic Label Punch and adhered it to the frame using Glue Dots.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the flower cluster image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in all 4 corners of the panel.  I colored just the leaves in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the large floral image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelops flap.  I colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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 Peaceful Moments

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is your weekend going?  I’ve got to go into work today, but I have been told that there are gloves and Purell at the register for us to use regularly and customers are asked if possible to use credit cards.  We’ll see how the day goes.

I have a birthday card for you today using some of the new Ornate Garden Suite items and lots of layers.  I just love cards with layers.  The Ornate Garden Suite items will be available to you starting April 1st.  These items will be in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card.

My design is from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #360.  Here is their sketch.

I started by getting all my pieces cut.  I used the Ornate Layers Dies to cut my Early Espresso  panel and then embossed it using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I cut my Terracotta Tile panel using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and then stamped it using the small flower from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Terracotta Tile Ink.  Once everything was cut and ready I started to assemble.

I adhered a piece of Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon to the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper card front using Glue Dots overlapping it to the back.  I adhered a small panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the left side of the Early Espresso embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Terracotta Tile panel to the bottom right of the embossed panel overlapping the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Terracotta Tile Ink.  I adhered the Mint Macaron mat to the back of the sentiment, off centering it, using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment to the Terracotta Tile panel using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the scroll image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink in the 4 corners of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Terracotta Tile mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the scroll image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink in the 4 corners 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 like my card and will give it a try.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend and I’ll see you tomorrow. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Ornate Thank You for 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 everyone is staying heathly.  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 Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #226.  Here is their sketch.

I started by coloring a panel of the gorgeous Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper, which is a Sale-A-Bration item, using my Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the panel to a Copper Foil mat using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of the new Old Olive 1/4″ Ornate Garden Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set, (available April 1st), in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Layers Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Poppy Parade cardstock I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the image out using my Butterfly Duet Punch.  I adhered the butterfly to the card front overlapping the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front and sentiment.  I adhered the card front to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a thin strip of the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP, which I colored using my Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers, to the top of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Snail and then 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 butterfly image from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the envelope front twice.  I adhered a panel of the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP, which I had colored using my Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers, to the envelope flap.

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, hop around to see everyone else’s projects. You can hit the next button to hop over to Amy Koenders blog or you can just click on the names below. Happy Hopping!!
