Stampin’ Up! Rustic Retreat for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers. 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 and the colors screamed rustic to me.  Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here’s my card using our colors.

Here are our colors for this week.

My design was inspired by the Paper Craft Cres Challenge #358.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Rustic Retreat Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on the top of the Crumb Cake card front.  I embossed the  Crumb Cake card front using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped a small panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Stampin’ Up Buffalo Check Cling Background Stamp in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the panel out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I stamped the cabin image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a small Crumb Cake panel.  I cut the image out using a smaller Stitched Rectangle Die.  I adhered the artwork to the Buffalo Check stamped Cherry Cobbler panel using Snail.  I stamped the bear image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock and fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the bear to the corner of the artwork using a Glue Dot.

I adhered a strip of Early Espresso cardstock to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a piece of the 3/8″ Magnolia Lane Linen Ribbon with White Edge on the Early Espresso strip using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, making sure to add a couple Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals under the bear to secure it.

On the inside I stamped the cabin image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink over the cabin image.  I stamped the bear and deer image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Snail 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 stamped the tree image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Early Espresso Ink along the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the cabin and bear image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Today’s the day!! Stampin’ Up! 24-Hour Sale, 15% off select stamp sets.  Don’t miss out on these great buys.  More information below about this along with the list of sets on sale.

My upline gave us our colors and sketch for this week to work with.  I am in full Christmas card mode now and when I saw the colors I had to think how I can make them work for a Christmas card.  Here’s what I came up with.

Here is the sketch and colors she gave us.

I started by stamping the pine boughs from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the stems in using my Dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I cut a few boughs out of Mint Macaron cardstock using the Beautiful Boughs Dies.  I cut 3 pinecones out in Soft Suede and 3 in Terracotta Tile cardstock using the Beautiful Boughs Dies.  I adhered the Mint Macaron boughs to the artwork using Glue Dots.  I adhered the Terracotta Tile pinecones to the Soft Suede pinecones using my Fine Tip Glue Pen and then adhered them to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the artwork to a Soft Suede mat using Snail and then to a Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I made the sentiment strip into a banner and adhered it to a Soft Suede mat, using Snail, which I also made into a banner.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Terracotta Tile 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to either side of the banner.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pine bough image from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink over the sentiment stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Suede mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the pine bough image from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope front and envelope flap, some in full strength ink and some stamped off once.

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

Stampin’ Up! Playful Penguins

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Hope it’s going to be a productive one for you.  Don’t forget, tomorrow is the big Stampin’ Up! 24-Hour Sale.  Lots of wonderful stamp sets at a 15% discount.  If there are some you have been wanting, you don’t want to miss this great opportunity.

For today’s card I used the color and sketch challenge that my upline had given us last week.  Each week this month she is giving us a new challenge to do.  I have to admit, I did struggle with the colors for this one a little bit.  Here’s my card.

Here are the colors and sketch she gave us.

I started by embossing a Night of Navy card front using the Winter Knit 3D Embossing Folder.  I wrapped a piece of Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front on an angle.  I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the penguin image from the Stampin’ Up! Playful Penguins Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the ground snow image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Versamark Ink below the penguin and immediately sprinkled it with Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I set it using my Heat Tool.  I stamped the falling snow image from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink all around the penguin.  I sprinkled it with my Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the artwork to an Old Olive mat using Snail.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the scarf and hat image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I fussy cut them using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the scarf and hat to the penguin image using Glue Dots.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped just the outline image of the banner from the Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas Cling Stamp Set using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker.  I stamped the sentiment from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Old Olive Ink inside the banner and cut the banner out using the Christmas Cardinal Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the sentiment banner over the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots to the ends of the banner.

On the inside I stamped 2 of the sentiments from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Old Olive Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the penguin image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the penguin image from the Playful Penguins stamp set on the envelope front and the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

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