Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning and Merry Christmas Eve my stamping friends, welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. Is everyone ready for the big day? I’m as ready as I’m going to be this year. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects.
Here is our sketch for this week.

Here’s my card using the sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Bundle for my card today.

I started by coloring a panel of the new True Love Designer Series Paper (coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog) using my Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the panel using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I adhered a panel of the True Love DSP to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the stitched rectangle panel to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut it out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered a piece of 1/4″ Old Olive Ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack with Glue Dots. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Cherry Cobbler Rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Onate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set on the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the True Love DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I adhered a panel of the colored True Love DSP to the envelope front and 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.

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK PRODUCTS- AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

Stampin’ Up! announced this information related to the Whisper White paper products late last evening:

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

  • Whisper White 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302) – SOLD OUT
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527) – SOLD OUT
  • Whisper White 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Envelopes (145829)

  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Thick Cardstock (140272) – SOLD OUT
  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301) – SOLD OUT

Stop by the online store to get the following Whisper White products that you love before they’re gone forever!  The Thick Whisper White card stock, Whisper White 12″ x 12″ Cardstock, Medium Envelopes and Note Cards & Envelopes have already sold out!

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Painted Poppies for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so it’s Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “For the Girls/Ladies”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.  I decided to make a Mother’s Day Card.  Here’s my card.

I started by embossing a panel of Blackberry Bliss using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  I took my Whisper White Craft Stamp Pad and gently brushed it across the panel to add some dimension to the bricks. I adhered the embossed panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a panel of Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to the top of the embossed panel.

I stamped the poppy images from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Pool Party cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the images out using the Painted Labels Dies.  I stamped the leaf image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock 3 times.  I cut the images out using my Painted Labels Dies.  I cut the swirly circle from the Painted Labels Dies out of the square of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and adhered it to the top of the DSP panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut the image out using the frame from the Painted Labels Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the die cut poppies and leaves to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the Pool Party cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Coastal Cabana Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.  I adhered the card front to the Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment form the Timeless Tulips stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the poppy images from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, using the masking technique, on the bottom left corner of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz 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 poppy images from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Peaceful Poppies DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Poppy Moments Mother’s Day

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  I have to work a partial day today, but I have tomorrow off.  I’m hoping to finish up my spring cleaning, get some windows washed and new curtains hung.

For today’s card I used the Poppy Moments Dies combined with the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin.  Here’s my card.

I started by cutting out all the pieces I needed.  I cut 4 of the longer leaves die from the Poppy Moments Dies by cutting 2 each in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive cardstock, the fronts and backs.  I adhered the pieces together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I also cut 2 of the smaller leaf dies from the Poppy Moments Dies, 1 each in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive cardstock, fronts and backs.  I adhered them together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut all the outline flower dies from the Poppy Moments Dies in Basic Black cardstock.  I cut 2 smaller poppy dies from the Poppy Moments Dies in Flirty Flamingo and Vellum cardstock.  I cut one of the larger poppy die from the Poppy Moments Dies  in Poppy Parade and Vellum.  I cut all the flower centers from the Poppy Moments Dies from a Black Foil Sheet.  I adhered the Basic Black out line dies to the Vellum die cuts, only in the center using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the smaller poppies to the Flirty Flamingo dies and the larger poppy to the Poppy Parade die, only in the center using Multipurpose Liquid Glue  I adhered the flower centers using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I adhered a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to the inside front of one of the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards using Multipurpose Liquid Glue only along the edge of the paper.  I arranged the flowers and leaves the way I thought I would like them using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.

I added a few Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the card front.

You can see when you open the card you see the reverse side of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP. On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the poppy images from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom corner of the panel using the masking technique.  I stamped the leaf images from the Painted Poppies stamp set around the flowers in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated an envelope which came in the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin.  I stamped the poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink around the flowers.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals 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! Painted Poppies Thank You for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s my card using this weeks sketch.

My colors are from TGIF Challenge #254.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of the DSP panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I cut out the small solid poppy using my Poppy Moments Dies from a panel of Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I cut the outline of the poppy out from a panel of Basic Black cardstock.  I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink on a panel of Old Olive cardstock 3 times.  I cut the leaves out using my Painted Labels Dies.  I cut the vellum leaves out using my Poppy Moments Dies.  I adhered the outline of the poppy die to the solid die using Multipurpose Liquid Glue only in the center to hold it.  I adhered the leaves on the back of the poppy using Snail.  I adhered the poppy to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added  Clear Wink of Stella to the center of the poppy to give it a little sparkle.  I added s few Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Lovely Lipstick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the smaller poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top and bottom corners of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Lovely Lipstick and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Lovely Lipstick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped a couple leaves by the flower image.  I colored the images in using my Lovely Lipstick and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Poppy Moments

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week starting off?  Tonight is my Stamp Camp Class so I have another pretty easy card since I’m not sure what kind of stampers the new ladies are.  Here’s my card.

I started by using the splatter image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set and stamped the Pool Party card front using Pool Party Ink.  I stamped the 2 poppy images and the leaf image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Painted Labels Dies.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies making sure that the sentiment was near the top of the circle.  I cut the swirly circle  out of Sahara Sand cardstock using the Painted Labels Dies.

I adhered the sentiment to the center of the swirly circle using Snail.  I adhered the flowers and leaves to the bottom of the sentiment using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and I adhered the card front to the Sahara Sand card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the poppy  and leaf image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the image in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Pool Party Ink all around the edges of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Pool Party Ink all around the front of the envelope.  I stamped the poppy and leaf images from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Meant To Be Poppies

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did you all watch the Super Bowl last night?  I watched bits and pieces and the half time show.  I have to admit, I really only watch for the commercials.

I have a pretty easy card for you today.  I’m having a Stamp Camp class tomorrow night and I have a couple new people joining me.  I’m not sure what kind of stampers they are, so I thought I’d keep it pretty simple.  Here’s one of the cards we’re going to make.

I played along with TGIF Challenge #249.  Here is their theme.

I started with a small panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the 2 different poppy images from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink by the flower images.  I colored the flowers and leaves in using my Mint Macaron and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Meant To Be Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom right of a Whisper White card front.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink over the stamped sentiment.  I embossed the Whisper White card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Meant To Be stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the poppy and leaf images from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top and bottom corners of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Mint Macaron and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose 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 poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the images in using the color fill image stamp from the Painted Poppies stamp set.  I adhered a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper 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! Poppy Moments Valentine for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s what I came up with for the sketch.

My colors were inspired by Global Design Project Challenge #225.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with TGIF Challenge #248.  Here is their theme.

I joined in with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #256.  Here is their theme.

I started by embossing a Whisper White card front using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Poppy Moments Dies, I cut a solid flower from the Real Red cardstock.  I cut the outline flower and the scallop trim from the Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  I cut the flower center from the Basic Black cardstock.  Using the Painted Labels Dies I cut the swirly circle from the Basic Black Cardstock.  I adhered the flower outline to the solid flower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the larger flower center to the flower center using Snail and the smaller flower center using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the Basic Black swirly circle to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the flower on top of the swirl using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Real Red Ink.  I adhered the Flirty Flamingo scallop trim below the sentiment using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels which I colored using my Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends Marker.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set in Real Red Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the poppy images from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set on the top and bottom corners of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Using the color fill stamp from the Painted Poppies stamp set, I stamped over the poppy images using Flirty Flamingo Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink inside the flowers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo 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 poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the fill image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink, stamping off once, inside the flowers.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink inside the flowers.  I adhered a panel of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Purple Painted Poppies

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  We spent Saturday at Hollywood Studios again and Sunday we went to Animal Kingdom.  Today we are heading to Magic Kingdom once again and will be leaving for home late tonight.  My husband booked an early morning flight coming so that we would get a full day in and a late night flight leaving so we would get another full day in.  I have gone on more rides this past week than I’ve gone on my entire life.  I don’t normally go on rides, but we were all having such a great time, I figured why not.  Like my niece told me “You only live once”.   I’m gong to need a vacation after this.  We will be arriving home early tomorrow morning (2am early) and 3 of the 4 of us have gotten sick.  I know where we’ll be heading tomorrow 😦  I don’t know about you, but the last place I want to be when I’m sick is on a plane.

I have a Clean and Simple card for you today,  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  I just love the color variations in this paper.  I adhered the matted DSP to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small poppy image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Blackberry Bliss, Purple Posy and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the dragonfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the poppies.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

I cut a strip of Purple Posy cardstock using the Banner Triple Punch. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the bottom of the banner.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Purple Posy 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dot to the artwork.  I tied a small bow using the Blackberry Bliss Nature’s Twine and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stemmed flower image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the left side of the panel.  I colored the image in using my Old Olive and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy 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 small poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink 3 times across the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Blackberry Bliss, Purple Posy and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Peaceful Poppies 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! Painted Poppies for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  By the time you read this we will be at Hollywood Studios, first stop is Star Tours.  My husband got the fast pass for that at 8:15am, I’m not sure how I’m going to be on that one first thing in the morning.  We’ll be ending our day watching Fantasmic, one of my favorite shows.  Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week we had a Color Challenge.  Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.  Here are the colors for this week.

Here is my card using these colors.

I started by stamping the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set 3 times in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I masked the large flowers and stamped the medium flower from the Painted Poppies stamp set twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and the small stemmed flower from the Painted Poppies stamp set twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  To mask the large flowers, I stamped the image on a Post-It note and fussy cut them out.  I covered the stamped image with the Post-It and stamped the other images over it.

I colored the flowers in using my Flirty Flamingo and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I then stamped the splotch image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the Flirty Flamingo flowers and Real Red Ink on the Real Red flowers. Since the Painted Poppies stamp set doesn’t come with any sentiments I had to pick one from another stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the right of the flowers.

I took a thin strip of Flirty Flamingo cardstock and stamped the splotch image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink all down the strip.  I adhered the strip of Flirty Flamingo cardstock to the right side of the Whisper White panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the large flower from the Painted Poppies stamp set on the top and bottom corner of a Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I masked the flower and stamped the medium flower from the Painted Poppies stamp set on either side of the large flower in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the flowers in using my Flirty Flamingo and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the splotch image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the Flirty Flamingo flowers and Real Red Ink in the Real Red flowers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Accented Blooms Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large flower image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I masked the flower and stamped the medium flower image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on either side of the flower.  I colored the flowers in using my Flirty Flamingo and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up Peaceful Painted Poppies

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  By the time you read this I will probably have landed in Orlando, Florida starting my vacation in Disney World.  My husband so nicely booked us on a 5am flight so that we would get a full day in our first day here.  I’m sure we will all be exhausted by tonight since we had to leave our house at 2am, so we didn’t even bother going to sleep last night.  Since I am away, I may not respond as quickly as normal to you, but I will be signing in before we leave for the parks in the morning and when we get back in the afternoon/evening.

For today’s card I have a very quick and easy card for you letting the Designer Series Paper do all the work for me.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of the 3/8″ Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow having the Old Olive side out.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug Cling Host Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies.  I tied a small piece of the Blackberry Bliss Natures Twine through the cut out sentiment and tied it around the Old Olive bow.

I added an Old Olive Noble Peacock Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the sentiment.  I adhered the card front to an Old Olive card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the poppy image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink 3 times on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Peaceful Poppies DSP to the envelope flap.
