Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars 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 Mary Deatherage’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up So Many Stars Bundle.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a Whisper White card front to my Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a star out of the center of both pieces of cardstock using the Stitched Stars Dies.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a Merry Merlot  mat using Snail.

I adhered the matted sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the inside on a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped a large star image and a small star image from the So Many Stars stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink.  I cut both stars out using the Stitched Stars Dies.  I also cut out a medium and small star from Champagne Foil Sheet using the Stitched Stars Dies.  I adhered the medium foil star to the large Whisper White star using a Glue Dot, not lining up the points.  I adhered the small foil and Whisper White stars together using a Glue Dot, not lining up the points.  I adhered the small stars to the medium stars using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the So Many Stars stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of a Merry Merlot panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the stars to the center of the Merry Merlot panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large and small star images from the So Many Stars stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the envelope front and envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars 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 was a fun Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.  Here’s what I came up with for the sketch.

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Silver Foil Sheet card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Night of Navy cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up So Many Stars Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a Silver Foil Sheet banner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut the scroll stars using the Stitched Stars Dies out of Silver Glimmer Paper.  I snipped the scroll in half so that I could arrange it with the banner so that some was on top and some on the bottom.

I adhered the scroll to the card front using Glue Dots where the banner would cover.  I adhered the sentiment banner over the scroll using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the stars from the scroll, scattered around on the card front, using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the So Many Stars stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Night of Navy Ink.  I stamped the cluster of stars image from the So Many Stars stamp set in Basic Gray Ink around the sentiment, stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel 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 star cluster image from the So Many Stars stamp set in Basic Gray Ink along the bottom of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Amy’s page.

Stampin’ Up! Christmastime Is Here For My Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s Halloween?  Ours was very wet and sad.  In nice weather we don’t get a lot of Trick or Treaters, so the rain made it empty.  My little nephew’s parades were cancelled so I didn’t even get to see them.

HAPPY NOVEMBER!!!!  Before I get started with today’s card, does everyone know what today is, other than November 1st?  Today’s the day you can purchase Christmastime Is Here Suite!!  You can purchase individual items or the whole suite.  You can also purchase the new awesome Paper Trimmer.  I just got mine and it’s fantastic.  Click Here to go to my Online Store to see how to order.

For today’s card I’ve used the gorgeous new Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper for my fun fold.  I wish pictures could show you how absolutely beautiful this paper is.  Here’s my card.

I started with a panel of Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP and scored it on the 10″ side at 1″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/2″, 3″, 4″, 4 1/2″, 5 1/2″, 6″, 7″, 7 1/2″, 8 1/2″ and 9″.  I then made a little mark on the 10″ side at 4 1/2″ & 5 1/2″ on both the top and bottom.  I turned the paper to the 5 3/8″ side and made a mark at 2 3/16″ & 3 3/16″ on both the top and bottom.  I cut from the 5 3/8″ side to the 10″ side to the little marks.  The paper looked like this when I was done.

I wanted the floral side out so I made the 1st fold on the end down and continued folding it like an accordion from both sides.  I adhered the pleated fold to a Cherry Cobbler card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue down the center back.

I wrapped a piece of the beautiful new 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon around the center of the pleats and adhered it in the back using a little Snail.  On a small piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars 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 my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped oval out of Mossy Meadow cardstock using my Layering Ovals Dies.  I was going to cut out a gold scalloped oval, but I wasn’t happy with how it looked next to the ribbon.

I adhered the sentiment oval to the scalloped oval using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow made from the 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon using a Glue Dot to the side of the sentiment.  I added a few of the new Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the So Many Stars stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered 2 strips of the Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP to either side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP to the envelope flap and a strip of the DSP to the front of the envelope.

Thank you for stopping by my blog for my Fun Fold Friday.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.

Happy Stamping!!
