Stampin’ Up! Zany Zebras Baby Card

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and heading towards the weekend. How is your week going?

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Welcome Wee One challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Zany Zebras Cling Stamp Set for my card today. I was inspired by the colors in the photo and the zebra rug under the ottoman.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join use this week to play along with our challenge #149. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a panel of Petal Pink using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of 1/4″ Coastal Cabana ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the strip into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the top of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On another panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the adorable zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I colored the zebras ear, nose and mouth using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the image to the card front overlapping the Petal Pink panel and the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Coastal Cabana Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Oval Occasions Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the inside of the ears, nose and mouth with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored the ear, nose and mouth using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Playing With Patterns 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!!

Hydrangea Haven CAS Encouragement Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week started off? Hope you are all having a productive one.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Bundle for today’s card. I’m a guest designer this week again for the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge. Here’s my card for today.

Here are the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #403 colors for this week

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper. I adhered the panel of Playing With Patterns DSP to a Crushed Curry mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I took a panel of Basic White cardstock and using my Blending Brushes, I added color to the panel using Melon Mambo on the top and Old Olive on the bottom. I then stamped the large hydrangea flower from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the colored panel. I cut the image out using my Hydrangea Dies and adhered it to the DSP card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of 1/2″ Whisper White Faux Linen Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and tied a bow on top of the stem. I adhered the card front to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few of the Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven in the center of a Basic White panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the hydrangea image from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. Using my Blending Brushes I added Melon Mambo Ink on the bloom and Old Olive Ink on the leaves. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crushed Curry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large flower from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. Using my Blending Brushes I added Melon Mambo Ink on the bloom and Old Olive Ink on the leaves. I adhered a panel of Playing With Patterns 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! A Touch Of Ink Thanks

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. Is anyone doing anything this weekend? I’ll be working all day today and tomorrow.

For today’s card I used one of the FREE stamp sets available from Sale-A-Bration. The Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set. There are lots of beautiful images and sentiments in this set. This set is available with a qualifying order of $100 or more. Here’s my card for today.

My upline Jaimie Babarczy is doing a challenge for our team this month. Each week she is giving us a sketch and color challenge. I used the colors, but switched the side of the sketch. This was a bit of a challenge for me since those that know me, know Crushed Curry is my least favorite color. Here’s this weeks challenge.

I started by adhering a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the outline floral image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I colored the flower in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the image to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock. I fussy cut the butterfly using my Paper Snips. I colored the butterflies body in and a part of the wing using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the butterfly to the card front, overlapping the stitched circle, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on a strip of Basic White cardstock in Night of Navy Ink and cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies. I colored a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Marker and added them to the card front.

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 Basic White panel. I stamped the butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crushed Curry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on the envelope front in Night of Navy Ink. I colored the image in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered a panel of Playing With Patterns 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! So Much Happy

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  We’re halfway through the week already and heading to a long holiday weekend.  I hope you all have Friday off for the 4th of July.

For today I used another new bundle from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by cutting the ‘HAPPY’ out of a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using my Happy Dies.  I adhered it to a Night of Navy panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the sentiment on an angle on a panel of Purple Posy card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut out 2 strips of banners using my Happy Dies, one in Calypso Coral and one in Coastal Cabana.  I adhered one above and one below the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Paper Snips I trimmed all the excess that was hanging over the card front panel.  I stamped 1 large balloon and 2 small balloons from the Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy Cling Stamp Set in Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana Inks on a Whisper White panel.  I cut the balloons, 3 strings and 3 bows out using my Happy Dies.  I adhered the strings to the back of the balloons using Glue Dots and the bows to the front of the balloons using a tiny dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the balloons to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the So Much Happy stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips and adhered it below the die cut sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large & small balloons and strings from the So Much Happy stamp set in Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana Inks.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large & small balloons and strings from the So Much Happy stamp set in Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana Inks.  I adhered a panel of Playing With Patterns DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Happiest Of Birthdays 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 that means 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 “Birthday”. I wanted to make a fun card this month, so I decided to use a new set that I just received from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and the new fun DSP.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Purple Posy card front using Stampin’ Seal.  There are so many great designs to choose from in this pack of DSP, I had to have my daughter pick for me.  I wrapped a piece of the 1/2″ Purple Posy ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack and tied a bow on the side of the panel.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the largest sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered the cut sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Purple Posy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Purple Posy Playing With Pattern Resin Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of the Playing With Pattern 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
