Stampin’ Up! Tropical Hideaway

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend.

Today’s card is one that we made last night at our Stamp Camp Card Class. I like to show the ladies some easy techniques when I can, and I’ve always liked the masking technique. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Tropical Hideaway Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Cling Stamp Set and Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Bundle for my card today.

I started by using the Chic Dies and cutting a panel of Masking Paper. I adhered the die cut Masking Paper to the center of a Basic White card front. I stamped the Tropical Hideaway stamp on the top using Soft Sea Foam Ink and the bottom using Pool Party Ink. I placed the card front, with mask side down to the stamp, on top of the stamp. I placed a piece of scrap paper on top of the stamp & card front and rubbed it using my hand making sure to press to get a good, stamped image. I carefully removed the paper from the stamp making sure to lift it straight up, so it didn’t smear.

Using my Blending Brush, I added some Petal Pink Ink over the die cut mask before removing it. Once I had coverage the way I wanted, I carefully removed the Masking Paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the card front in the masked area. I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of the Soft Sea Foam 3/8″ Seam Binding Ribbon around the layered panel and tied a bow. I adhered the layered panel to a Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Solid Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the Tropical Hideaway image on a Basic White panel after stamping off once on scrap paper. It’s a very light image. I stamped the sentiment from Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel. I stamped the seashell image from Season of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the bottom of the panel, stamping off once on scrap paper. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the shell image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Splendid Day 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! Paradise Palms for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Theme Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Bundle along with the New Horizons 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Our theme this week is to Create a Scene!

I started by adhering a panel of New Horizon DSP to a Pale Papaya card base.

From a panel of Basic Black cardstock, I cut out 2 of the palm tree dies using the Palms Dies. From another panel of Basic Black cardstock I cut out 3 of the grass dies using the Palms Dies. I adhered the grass die-cut pieces to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots where they overlapped. I adhered the 2 palm tree die-cuts to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic Black cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Cling Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder from the Basics Embossing Powders and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered a small piece of Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weve Ribbon to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the palm tree images from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel. I adhered a strip of the New Horizons DSP to the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the palm tree image from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of New Horizons 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 and see everyone’s projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Rain Boots

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on the downhill to the weekend. Hope you are all having a wonderful week.

I was looking through my card stash yesterday and wanted to send a thinking of you card. I realized I don’t have many cards that are for ‘just because’. So, I decided to make one. Have you ever had one of those crafting days that everything goes wrong? It took me 5 tries to get this card right. I knew exactly what I wanted, but it just wouldn’t go on paper that way. Then when I thought I had it, the ink smudged. Tuesday is usually my day to get myself a little ahead, not yesterday. We’ll blame it on the weather. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin” Up! Flowering Rain Boots Bundle along with the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from Sunday Stamps Sweet Pastels Challenge #281.

I played along with The Paper Players Clean & Simple Challenge #587, April Showers.

I started by stamping the grass image from the Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Cling Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink along the bottom of a Basic White card front. On a panel of the Subtle DSP I stamped the rain boots image from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Rain Boots Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blushing Bride Ink. I cut the boots out using my Rain Boots Dies.

I stamped the stem/leaves image from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the Basic Whtie card front. I stamped the tulip heads image from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set on the stems in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stem. I adhered the rain boots to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the card front. From a strip of Basic White cardstock I cut the cloud looking die from the Basic Borders Dies and adhered it to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a So Saffron mat and then to the front of a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials that looked like rain drops to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the stem/leaves image from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the tulip heads in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stems. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stems/leaves image from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the bottom of the envelope front and the tulips in Highland Heather Ink on the top of the stems. I adhered a panel of Subtle 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! Paradise Palms Special Moments CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. Hope your week has started out productive.

I was so happy with my card for today and surprisingly I only used Stamps, Ink and Paper. Back to the basics. I just love playing with the Blending Brushes and mixing colors. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

I started with a Basic White card front. I used Post-It Note Tape and taped off the sides of the panel to make a border. Starting at the bottom using my Blending Brushes I started adding color. I used Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather and Misty Moonlight Inks, blending them all as I moved up the panel.

Once I had the colors the way I wanted them I started stamping the palm tree images and the grass image from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I removed the tape from the 4 sides and adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat and then to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Basic Black mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the palm tree and grass images from the Paradise Palm stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the grass and palm tree images from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Sunshine & Rainbows Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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