Stampin’ Up! Touched My Heart Sympathy

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s week going? We’re halfway through and on the way to the weekend already. As of now they are saying it’s going to be a nice weekend, but this is NJ and the weather changes hourly.

Today’s card is one I really don’t like making. It’s one thing if I make them to have on hand, but it’s another when I have to make one special. One of my daughter’s friends brother died last weekend while out hiking in AZ. Dehydration and heat stroke they believe. Young man, only in his 30’s, very sad. I wanted to make a card for her friend and mother since I knew both of them, so here’s what I made.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Host Touched My Heart Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a Misty Moonlight panel. I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I embossed the panel using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder. I then adhered a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the top of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Misty Moonlight 1/4″ 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon around the panel and tied a knot.

I cut 3 leave using the Nature’s Roots Dies, one in Bumblebee, one in Cajun Craze and one in Real Red. I adhered the leaves just under the knot using Glue Dots and then added a Glue Dot under the knot. I adhered the card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampn’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the tall tree from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the tall tree from the Rooted in Nature stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the envelope front.

I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Peekaboo For Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Is anyone doing anything fun this weekend?  Tomorrow is World Card Making Day and our team has a whole day planned out with videos from 9am-9pm, information below about it.

Today’s card is one that I made on Wednesday afternoon on my Facebook Live video.  If you were able to join me or you watched the replay, thank you very much.  If you’d like to view my video either on Facebook or YouTube, the link is below.   My card is actually a peekaboo card and not a folded one today.  Here’s my card.

I started by lightly adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Gray Granite card base using the tiniest amount of Stampin’ Seal.  Using the largest tree die from the Nature’s Roots Dies, I cut the center of the card front.

I removed the DSP from the card base, very carefully not to tear the cardstock.  I stamped the large tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink, stamping off once.   I stamped the tree image through the card front so that it was aligned perfectly..

I adhered the DSP back to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut and embossed the smallest leaf from the Nature’s Roots Dies in Bumblebee, Misty Moonlight and Seaside Spray cardstock.  I adhered the leaves to the card front using Glue Dots for the bottom 2 and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the top leaf.  I added a multi-looped bow I made using Linen Thread and Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Comb Pack, with a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of the tree.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure the tree lined up with the die cut card front.  I added a couple Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the tree and the card front.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the largest leaf image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope in Misty Moonlight, Bumblebee and Seaside Spray Inks.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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.  The list of supplies are below along with the measurements if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video.  You can watch it on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature 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 Mary Deatherage’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “For The Boys/Men”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.  I made a Father’s Day Card for you.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Garden Green Mat using Snail.  I embossed a Whisper White strip of cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a Garden Green and Night of Navy piece of Twine  from the Country Club Twine Combo Pack around the card front and tied a knot.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tall tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Cling Stamp Set which I colored using my Garden Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the image out using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the next size oval out from the Layering Ovals Dies from Garden Green cardstock. I adhered the artwork to the Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the leaf image.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the next size larger circle from the Layering Circles Dies from Garden Green cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card front, overlapping the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Silver Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tall tree image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set on the left side of the panel, which I colored using my Garden Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green 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 tall tree image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set which I colored using my Garden Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Country Club DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty and Joy For Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

 

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and you know what that means, Blog Hop Day!!  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s awesome 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 “Giving Thanks”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set to create a Thanksgiving card.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with the Inspire. Create Challenge #053.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Just Us Girls Word Week #508.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flowerpot image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink.  I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Early Espresso Ink above the flowerpot stamping off once.  I stamped the leaves image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the tree trunk.  I cut the image out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  For the banner I had to get a little creative.  I stamped the banner from the Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas Cling Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I used my Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker to color just the banner part of the stamp in.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink inside the banner.  I cut the banner out using the Christmas Cardinal Dies.  I adhered the banner to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut out some leaves using the Nature’s Roots Dies in Merry Merlot cardstock.  I adhered 3 of the leaves under the artwork using Glue Dots.  I adhered the cluster of leaves under the sentiment using Glue Dots.  I tied a small bow using the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread that comes in the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack, and adhered it to the cluster of leaves using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampn’ Up! A wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Cling Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink, stamping off once, around the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered another one of the die cut leaves by the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tree image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather 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. Now be sure to hit Previous to hop back to Amy Koenders blog or hit Next to head over to Mary Deatherage’s blog. You can also click on each of the names and hop around that way. Happy Hopping!!
