Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Color Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here are the colors we had to work from.

Here is my card using the new 2020-2022 In- Colors.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #234 Going In Circles.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set I stamped the butterfly image in Bumblebee Ink, the feather image in Misty Moonlight Ink, the flower in Magenta Madness Ink and the leafy images in Just Jade Ink.  I cut all the images out using the Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  I adhered the leafy images to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added some Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack to the card front using Glue Dots.  I added the butterfly, feather and flower to the card front using Stampn’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I made the strip into a banner using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.   I cut a small butterfly using the Nature’s Thoughts Dies from a Silver Foil Sheet and adhered it to the twine using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I stamped the feather from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the side of the sentiment.  I stamped the leafy image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the other side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  Using my Positive Thoughts stamp set, I stamped the butterfly in Bumblebee Ink, the feather in Misty Moonlight Ink and the leafy image in Just Jade Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP 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, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thank You

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Yesterday turned out to be such a beautiful day here.  Upper 70’s with only 50% humidity.  I’d take a whole summer of that weather.

For today’s card I used another one of the Suites from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog that I just had to buy the whole thing, the beautiful Ornate Garden Suite.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Bumble Bee card base using Stampin’ Seal.

Using the Ornate Layers Dies I cut a panel of Bumble Bee cardstock .  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Bumble Bee Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Ornate Layers Dies and adhered it to the Bumble Bee frame using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a piece of 1/4″ Old Olive ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front, on top of the ribbon, 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 Bumble Bee Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set twice in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Bumble Bee 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 twice on the envelope front and colored the images in using my Crumb Cake and Old Olive 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! Forever Fern Friendship

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Yesterday was such a beautiful spring day here, cool in the morning and 70 in the afternoon with very low humidity, but a lot of pollen.  Don’t forget, today is the last day to sign up for my 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Paper Shares and the last day to purchase retiring items from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and the January – June Mini Catalog.

Today’s card is filled with new items for you from cardstock, to DSP to Stamp Set.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Magenta Madness card front using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of the Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine, from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Pack, around the card front 3 times and tacked it with Glue Dots on the back.  I adhered the card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink, stamping off once.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using the scalloped circle that was just a bit larger that the stitched circle from the Layering Circle Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the scalloped circle mat using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink stamping off once, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped one of the fern images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on either side of the sentiment, stamping off twice.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Magenta Madness mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fern image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once then continuing to stamp without reinking, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Flowers for Every Season 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 From All Of Us for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?

Today’s card is one that I demonstrated on our Facebook Live Event last Saturday.  Here is the link if you’d like to watch it.  https://creativestampingdesigns.com/…/stampin-up-ornate-ho…/    These cards are the same, but just a little different.  One I made as a book fold and the other a tent fold.  I have both cards here that I  will explain.  The card cuts and products used are below for both cards.  Here are my cards.

With both cards I started by lightly adhering the Early Espresso card front to the Early Espresso card base and the Old Olive card front to the Old Olive card base using a tiny bit of Snail right in the middle.  I cut the Early Espresso card using the Layering Ovals Dies and the Old Olive card using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I embossed both card fronts using my Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Early Espresso card front to the Early Espresso card base and the Old Olive card front to the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Layering Ovals Dies, I cut a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using the scalloped oval that was larger that the cut oval.  I cut the center of the oval the same size as the  one cut through the card front.  I adhered the frame to the Early Espresso card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of Old Olive Ornate Garden 1/4″ Ribbon around the right side of the oval and tied a bow.  On a thin piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail and then to the Early Espresso card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Gilded Gems to the card front.

Using my Ornate Layers Dies, I cut a panel of Terracotta Tile cardstock using the frame that was larger than the rectangle on the Old Olive card front.  I cut the center of the Terracotta Tile frame using the same size Stitched Rectangle Die that I used to cut through the card front.

I adhered the frame to the Old Olive card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a Gilded Gem to the card front.

For the inner card I adhered a panel of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Blushing Bride card base using Snail.  I adhered the inner card inside the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it was centered and opened to the right (opposite of the Early Espresso card).   It will look like photo below.

I added another Gilded Gem to one of the flowers you can see through the card front.

For the inner card I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to a Terracotta Tile card base using Snail.  I adhered the inner card to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it was centered and opened to the right (opposite of a book fold card).  I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to an Old Olive mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the inner card front using Glue Dots, lining is up through the rectangle card front.  I tied a small bow from the Terracotta Tile Ornate Garden 1/4″ Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  I added a couple Gilded Gems to the inner card front and sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  Using the Ornate Borders Dies, I cut out the flourish on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the smaller Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  There were 2 heart shapes that cut out of each side from the flourish die, so I added them in the top inside corners of the small and large card bases using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Light Mango Melody and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the small Terracotta Tile 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 Early Espresso Ink on the 4 corners of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

To finish my 2nd 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 of the envelope front 3 times.  I colored the images in using my Light Mango Melody and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Ever So Much

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  All good here.  The good thing about being home more is I seem to be getting more things around the house done along with having extra time to craft and watch my team members Facebook Live videos along with some others.  I really enjoy watching everyone’s videos.  Eventually I am going to figure out a schedule and start doing a Facebook Live myself.  Tomorrow we should be getting the list of items that will be retiring from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog and the Annual Catalog.  I will share it with you as soon as I can.

I have another card for you today using the Ornate Garden Suite.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to an Old Olive Mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 3 panels of Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to 3 Old Olive mats using Snail. I adhered the 3 matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Layers Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 2 Gilded Gems to the framed sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the small flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink on the 4 corners of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the flowers in using my Light Mango Melody, Light Old Olive and Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I didn’t add a sentiment so that I could write my own.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive 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 adhered a strip of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the bottom front of the envelope and a panel 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.

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

Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Thanks for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is here once again.  My team has a fun event planned for tomorrow starting at 1pm.  We will be doing Facebook live videos showcasing the Ornate Garden Suite, there will even be giveaways at the end of the event.  You will just need to leave a comment during the live videos.  I’m planning on going live at 5pm.  Our Facebook page is all set up for the event and it’s open for joining!  Click this link to go to the group and then click the “join” button and we’ll get you approved ASAP: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1833741716756137/  Looking forward to seeing you there.

For today’s card I used a suite from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog which will be ending the beginning of June.  I don’t know if these items will be carrying over, so I wanted to make sure I got to use them.  My card is actually 2 cards in one.   Here’s my card.

I played along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #267.  Here is their theme.

I started with a Crumb Cake card base which is larger than normal.  It’s 5 1/2″ X 10″ scored and folded at 4 1/4″ & 8 1/2″.

I adhered 2 panels of Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to Night of Navy mats using Snail and then adhered them to the front of the card base and the small fold over piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a smaller panel of Come Sail Away DSP to a Night of Navy mat using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink on a small Whisper White panel.  I cut the sentiment out using the banner die from the Smooth Sailing Dies and adhered it to the small card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside of the small card base, I stamped the sentiment from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a small Whisper White panel.  I stamped the anchor image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink to the right of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the small Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the small card base to the fold over panel of the large card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, only on 1″ of the back near the fold.  I wrapped a piece of the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine around the card bases and tied a bow on the left side.  I adhered the small card front to the small card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Sail Away Trinket just below the sentiment using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the compass image from the Sailing Home stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once.  I stamped the anchor image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink overlapping the compass image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the compass image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the envelope front, stamping off once.  I stamped the anchor image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink overlapping the compass image.  I adhered a panel of Come Sail Away 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 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!!

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!!
