Stampin’ Up! Glimmer Free Skate

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Hope you all were able to do something fun and exciting.

For today’s card I used a new set to me from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  I couldn’t decide if I wanted it or not.  I love the set, but I had to be sure I would use it enough.  I’m really happy I decided to get it.  Here’s my card.

My sketch and colors were inspired by Colours & Sketches Challenge #345 – Double.  I didn’t have their exact colors, but they said we could use similar.  Here is their challenge.

I started by embossing a panel of Seaside Spray cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I cut the skates out using the Detailed Skates Dies and cutting Rococo Rose cardstock for the solid skate and Rose Glimmer Paper for the detailed skate.  I cut the skate blades out of a Silver Foil Sheet.

I first cut the blade off the solid skate using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the detail skate to the solid skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the blade to the bottom of the detailed skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the skates to the Seaside Spray panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Cling Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I made a banner of the sentiment and adhered it below the skates using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a small bow made from the 1/4″ Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon using a Glue Dot.

I stamped the front of the Thick Whisper White card base using the snowflake image from the Free Skate stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink.  I adhered the card front to the front of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Pretty Peacocok Rhinestone from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Free Skate stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Free Skate stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink all around the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the skate image from the Free Skate stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Free Skate stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on 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! Perfect Plaid for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  I was so excited to be asked to join in with the weekly ‘Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop’ and today is the first day for me to join in.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week was a fun Sketch Challenge.  Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects, I’m sure you will love them.  Here’s what I came up with for their sketch.

Here is the sketch I got to work from.

I started by adhering a panel of Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Cherry Cobbler  card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of a Shaded Spruce cardstock panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the Shaded Spruce card front on top of the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut out the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies from Whisper White cardstock, I then embossed it using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I cut out the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies from a Gold Foil Sheet.  I adhered the Whisper White stitched circle to the Gold Foil scalloped circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I punched out 3 trees using my Pine Tree Punch, one in Cherry Cobbler, one in Shaded Spruce and one in Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP.  I adhered the Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce trees to the Whisper White circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the DSP tree on top of the other 2 using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a knot from a piece of Shaded Spruce/Gold Striped 3/8″ Ribbon and adhered it to the matted stitched circle using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the Shaded Spruce card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the plaid tree image from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Inks on the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I punched another tree using my Pine Tree Punch from a piece of Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP and adhered it on top of the stamped trees using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce 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 plaid tree image from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Inks on the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Hope it was a productive one.  I had off yesterday and I went non stop from early morning till late at night getting things done.  I did some of my fall cleaning and decorating, washed windows and changed curtains.  I even had some time to make a card for today.

I have a really quick and easy fun fold card for you today.  I’m not quite sure what the name of today’s fun fold card is.  I want to call it a corner fold card.  Take a look.

I started with a Rococo Rose card base which is 4 1/4″ X 11″.  I scored at the 5 1/2″ and then made a little mark 1 1/4″ from the score line on the front of the card.  I scored from that mark to the bottom right corner and folded the corner to the front.  To give it a little texture, I embossed the card front using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.

Using the largest scallop square from my Layering Squares Dies, I cut the Pear Pizzazz panel.  I took the 2nd largest square from the Layering Squares Dies and cut my Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper out.  Using my Stampin’ Sponge, I sponged the edges of the Pear Pizzazz scallop square with Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I adhered the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP panel to the scallop square using Snail.  Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I adhered the Mossy Meadow panel to the card base lining up the corners of the square with the fold line.  I adhered the matted DSP to the Mossy Meadow panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I made the strip into a banner and sponged the edges with Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I adhered the banner under the scallop square using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Path of Petals stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the side of the panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the leaf image.  I adhered a panel of 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! Free Skate Christmas Card and Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re almost through another week and before you know it the weekend will be here.

For today I have a couple projects to share with you that we made at our team meeting on Sunday.  Our team leader, Amy, comes up with the cutest ideas.  Both projects were 100% her designs.  First we made a Christmas card using the Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Bundle.  After making this card I am definitely going to purchase this set for myself.  It’s so much nicer in person than it is in the catalog.  Here’s the card we made.

I started by embossing a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a Poppy Parade panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using the Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies and the bow using the Detailed Skates Dies from the panel of Po9ppy Parade cardstock.  I cut the strip of holly leaves out of Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Detailed Skates Dies.  I cut 2 of the solid ice skates out and 2 of the detailed ice skates out using the Detailed Skates Dies from the Whisper White panel.  I cut 2 of the ice skate blades out of the Silver Foil Sheet using the Detailed Skates Dies.  I stamped the holly and berry image from the Free Skate stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampn’ Blends Markers.  I cut the holly image out using the Detailed Skates Dies.

To assemble everything, I adhered the detailed skate to the solid skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the  blades to the bottom of the skates using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the skates to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Holly to the skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the bow above the skates on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the strip of Holy leaves to the left of the skates using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the sentiment circle above the holly using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Red Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Free Skate stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the holly and berry image from the Free Skate stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink by the sentiment and colored it in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope by stamping the Holly and Berry image from the Free Skate stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and flap.  I colored them in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

The other project we made at our team meeting was this adorable Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box.

Everyone got to choose the Designer Series Paper we wanted to use.  This adorable little box is cut from one sheet of the Night Before Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper Stack using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies.  It was so simple to put together too.  Fold up the sides and it’s done.  These boxed would make great little favors that you can fill with candy or a little keepsake.

The only stamping on this was the tag and holly berry image.  We stamped the holly and berry image from the Free Skate stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  We colored it in using the Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut it out using the Detailed Skates Dies.  For the tag, we stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tiny Keepsakes Cling Stamp Set in Poppy Parade Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies.  We adhered the holly and berry to the tag using a Glue Dot and tied the tag to the box using some Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked the projects that I shared with you.  I had a lot of fun making both projects and what made it even more fun was stamping with Team Members and friends. It’s great being a part of this team.  If you’re interested in joining our team, please contact me for more information.  I’d love to have you join us.  Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Thank You

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week been?  We’re almost to the weekend and for some you get a 3 day weekend (which I personally think it should always be that way).  Hope you are starting to make some fun plans.  I can’t believe that Sunday is the 1st of September, but you know what that means right.  September 4th the new 2019 Holiday Catalog goes live.  Does everyone have a mile long list like I do?

For today’s card I didn’t use anything from the upcoming catalog.  I let some Designer Series Paper do most of the work for me.  Here’s my card.

I started by embossing a Rococo Rose card front using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered it to a Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Well Written Dies I cut out the ‘thank you’ in Rococo Rose cardstock.  The die actually said ‘thanks’, but I cut off the ‘s’ at the end.  I adhered the sentiment to the center of a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the DSP to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail.

I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the leafy stem image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink  in the center of the Very Vanilla panel stamping off once.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the stems stamping off once.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leafy stem image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the stems.  I adhered a panel of 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.  Don’t forget to stop back tomorrow for Fun Fold Friday.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Heartland Father’s Day Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  We’ve made it to the half way mark.  Before you know it the weekend will be here.

For today’s card I have a Father’s Day card for you.  I don’t know about you, but Father’s Day kind of snuck up on me.  Here’s my card.

I started with a panel of Soft Suede cardstock and using the 2nd largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies, I cut an oval out in the center.  I then embossed it using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, to a Sahara Sand card base which I had cut using the 3rd largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the tractor image from the Stampin’ Up Heartland Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut out the work ‘happy’ using the Well Written Dies in Sahara Sand cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a strip of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I adhered the ‘happy’ using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the sentiment using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the right top of the card front.  I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the card front through the oval and tied  knot.

On the inside I stamped the barn image from the Heartland stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel making sure it would show through the oval.  I added a tiny bit of color using my Aqua Painter to the grass and trees.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the barn image from the Heartland stamp set on the envelope front in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the little boy walking with the ducks from the Heartland stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on 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!!
