Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Valentine

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re halfway through the week already and on the downhill to the weekend.  It’s been gorgeous weather here.  I’ve had my windows open all day and night.  After being without A/C all summer this is most welcoming.

Before I get to my card, I just wanted to let everyone know about World Card Making Day, Saturday October 3rd.  Our Inkin’ Krew Team will be doing videos all day, every hour.  I will actually be doing 2 Facebook Live videos that day.  I will post a schedule when we get closer.

Today’s card is the last card that we made on Sunday at our virtual in person team meeting.  The Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Bundle has all different occasions in it.  This is such an awesome bundle to have that can be used over and over again.  It covers Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine’s Day.  What’s not to love about a bundle like this.  Here’s my card which was a design by my team member Sue.  Sue only used the stamp set for her design, I did have to adjust it a little since I didn’t have some of the items she was using.

I started by embossing a Whisper White panel using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Melon Mambo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From another panel of the Plaid Tidings DSP I cut the stitched heart from the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I then cut a scalloped stitched heart from the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I adhered the 2 hearts together using Stampin’ Dimensionals around the edges on the back and adhered it to the card front.  On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Melon Mambo Ink.

Using my Paper Snips, I cut the words out separately and adhered them to the heart using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the heart and the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Meant To Be Cling Stamp Set in Melon Mambo Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the heart with the scroll from the Celebration Tidings stamp set on the top of the panel and the small hearts from the Celebration Tidings stamp set randomly around in Melon Mambo Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Melon Mambo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the heart with the scroll and the small heart from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Scripty Happy Birthday To You

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Are you all still working from home and keeping Social Distancing?  I have to work today, but I’m all by myself in the office so I feel pretty safe.  Can you believe it’s the last day of March already?  I feel like I lost a whole month.

I made a Wedding/Anniversary/Birthday card for you today.  I left the sentiment wide open so I can use it for anything I need.  Here’s today’s card.

I played along with Paper Craft Crew Challenge #375.  They had a Horizontal Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #484.  Here is their board.  I covered 3 different directions starting at the top left corner.

I started by embossing a Soft Seafoam card front using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Seafoam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper using the Stitched So Sweetly Die and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the cake image from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You Cling Stamp Set, which is a Sale-A-Bration item, in Smoky Slate Ink.  I colored the image in using my Petal Pink, Purple Posy, Light Smoky Slate and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the cake image to the die cut DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink making sure to get mainly the one flower.  I colored the flower in using my Petal Pink and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered a piece of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the fussy cut flower over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Seafoam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Seafoam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Petal Pink, Purple Posy and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Parisian Blossoms 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, today’s the last day to order Coordination Products and to earn free Sale-A-Bration items.  If there is something you wanted, you need to get your order in now.   Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Winds of Change Easter Card

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off.  It’s starting to feel a lot like spring here.  This is one of the mildest winters I remember in a long time.  I blame it on my Team Leader moving to NJ from GA.  I think she brought the mild winter with her.

Today’s card is another one we are doing tonight at our card class.  My design was inspired by one of my team members Akiko Sudano.  You can see her card here. Here is my take on her card.

I started by embossing a panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Soft Suede mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted panel to a Petal Pink card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tulip image from the Stampin’ Up! Winds of Change Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Painted Labels Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the Petal Pink card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I made the strip into a banner using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to a  strip of Soft Suede cardstock, which I made into a banner using my Paper Snips, using Snail.  I adhered the matted banner to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tulip image from the Winds of Change stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Suede mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tulip image from the Winds of Change stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a Petal Pink panel of the Subtle 6 X 6 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! The Gang’s All Meer for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the first Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop of 2020. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. I used a FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp set for today’s card.  My daughter’s friend loves Meer Cats, so I made her a birthday card using the new set.  Here’s what I came up with for the sketch.

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by embossing a Night of Navy card front using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer Cling Stamp Set using Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the same image on a Post-It note and fussy cut it to do the Masking Technique.  I colored the Meer Cats in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I covered the image with the Post-It note and started sponging.  Using my Stamping Sponges, I started at the bottom with Old Olive Ink. I sponged Daffodil Delight above the Old Olive and Calypso Coral above that.  I continued sponging with the Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather and Night of Navy on the top of the panel.  I adhered the artwork to an Old Olive mat using Snail.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White strip to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the Center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 2 small Meer Cats and the Lizard images from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the party hat image from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set on the 2 Meer Cats in Night of Navy Ink.  I colored the Meer Cats in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers and I colored the lizard in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  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 large Meer Cat image from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the 2 smaller Meer Cat images from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope flap and colored them in using my Crumb Cake and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin’ Up! Well Written Wedding Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week been going?  The weekend is right around the corner again and that means only 2 day’s till World Card Making Day.  Our team will be doing Facebook Live videos all day on Saturday starting at 9am and going until 9pm.  I hope you can join us, the link is listed below.  I will be doing my live video at 4pm, this will be my 1st Facebook Live.

For today’s card a friend asked me to make her a wedding card for this weekend.  I’ve seen cards made with the Puzzle Pieces Dies and I thought I’d put my own spin on it.  Here’s my card.

I played along with the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge #173.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Whisper White panel using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut out 2 of the puzzle pieces using the Puzzle Pieces Die from a scrap of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I wanted to make sure the puzzle pieces were a little sturdier, that’s why I used the thick cardstock.  I colored one of the pieces in using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I colored 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker and added them to the puzzle piece, so it looked like buttons.  The other puzzle piece I left white and added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the top to look like a necklace.

I cut the heart out of Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I cut the ‘bride and groom’ sentiments out of Silver Foil Sheets using the Well Written Dies.  I adhered the puzzle pieces to the center of the heart using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the bride on the top of the heart and groom on the bottom of the heart using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a piece of Silver 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon to the back of the heart using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the heart to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the heart image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then 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 heart image from the Forever Lovely stamp set on the envelope front and envelope flap in Petal Pink Ink.

WINTER WONDERS PAPER PUMPKIN

SUBSCRIBE TO PAPER PUMPKIN BY OCTOBER 10, 2019

Paper Pumpkin wants to help you share love and joy this Christmas with a duo of delightful, special-edition kits. October’s kit includes 10 traditional cards, while November’s kit features 24 can’t-miss tags. Put them together and you have everything you need to make the season bright.

There’s something about the holidays that brings out the crafter in all of us. Even non-crafters like making simple and fun projects to celebrate the season. And since “simple and fun” is Paper Pumpkin’s middle name, we have the perfect kits for you!

In October and November we are offering back-to-back coordinating kits, one with Christmas cards, the other with Christmas tags. Both kits make it easy for you to add a handmade, personal touch to your holiday giving—without a lot of fuss. It’s Christmas made easy with Paper Pumpkin!

October Kit

Coordinating colors: Early Espresso, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, and Shaded Spruce

November Kit

Coordinating colors: Early Espresso, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, and Shaded Spruce

The October and November kits coordinate; however, each kit is all-inclusive and can stand alone.

Stampin’ Up Everything Amazing Birthday Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How are you doing today?  The weekend is almost here again, hope you are starting to make some fun plans.

For today’s card a friend of mine asked me to make a card for a 50th birthday.  Here’s what I came up with.

I joined in with Sunday Stamps Challenge #208.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with TGIF Challenge #219.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a panel of Purple Posy card stock using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I then took a piece of the Seaside Spray Scalloped Lined Ribbon and cut it in half length wise.  I adhered a piece to the top and bottom of the embossed panel using Snail.  I adhered the embossed panel to a 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper Rococo Rose card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the DSP card front to a Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Everything Amazing Photopolymer Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I stamped the 2 smaller sentiment from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the lines from the large sentiment.  I stamped the floral image from Stampin’ Up Pocketful of Happiness Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the top corner of the rectangle.  I colored the floral image in using my Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added 3 gold Metallic Pearls.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I stamped the floral images from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top and bottom 2 corners and colored them in using my Purple Posy,  Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Smile

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has you week been going?  The weekend is right around the corner.

I’ve used a few new items for today’s card.  I received my Stampin’ Up order from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog yesterday and I couldn’t wait to play with my new items.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with  couple challenges today.  First off I played along with Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #339.  Here is their sketch.

Next I played along with Color Throwdown Challenge #546.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a Very Vanilla card front using the new Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a smaller panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I stamped the fern image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Snail.

I adhered a strip of the new Pretty Peacock Noble Peacock Foil Sheet to the right side of the matted artwork using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the medium daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Calypso Coral 3 times.  I punched the daisies out using the new Medium Daisy Punch.  I adhered the daisies together using Multipurpose Liquid glue, then adhered them to the artwork using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a few Night of Navy Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the top of the artwork and the center of the daisy.

On the inside I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink, stamping off twice, on the left side of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the smaller daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink, stamping off once, on top of the stem.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Night of Navy Ink  over the top of the daisy.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Calypso Coral cad base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on top of the stem.  I stamped the fern image from the Daisy Lane stamp set along the envelope flap, stamping off once.

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