Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have color challenge with some beautiful fall colors. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here are our colors for this week.

Here is my card using these colors.

My design is from Fusion Card Challenge.  I chose to use just the sketch.  Here is their challenge.

I also played along with Daisy Chain Challenge #44.  Their Theme is ‘For Boys/Men’.

I joined in with Global Design Project #255.  They have a Theme Challenge this week. Here’s their theme.

I started by embossing an Early Espresso panel using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. 

I cut a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper using my Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I adhered the die to the side of the embossed panel, hanging over the edge a bit, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, leaving a spot to insert the sentiment under the die.  I trimmed the edge of the DSP using my Paper Trimmer.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment just under the die cut using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the leaf images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set 2 times each.  I stamped the outline of the maple leaves in Cajun Craze Ink and the outline of the oak leaves in Mint Macaron Ink.  I then stamped the fill image from the maple leaf in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once over the outline images.  I stamped the fill image from the oak leaf in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once over the outline images.  I stamped the outline image of the acorn from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the top of the acorn fill image in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once over the outline image.  I stamped the bottom section of the acorn in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once over the outline image.  I cut the leaves and the acorn out using my Autumn Punch Pack.  I adhered the maple leaves to the right side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the bottom one and a Stampin’ Dimensional for the top leaf.  I adhered the oak leaves and the acorn to the left side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the bottom leaf, a Stampin’ Dimensional for the acorn and a Glue Dot for the top leaf.  I made a double loop bow using Linen Thread and adhered it to the top of the acorn using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the outline of the maple leaf from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink next to the sentiment.  I stamped the fill image of the maple leaf in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once, over the outline image.  I stamped the outline of the oak leaf from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink.  I stamped the fill image of the oak leaf in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once, over the outlined image.  I stamped the acorn image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink below the oak leaf.  I stamped the top of the acorn fill image in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once, over the outline image.  I stamped the bottom fill image of the acorn in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, over the outlined image.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leaf and acorn images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set along the bottom front of the envelope the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the Gilded Autumn 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.

Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Thanks

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off.  I’ll be at work all day today.  It’s suppose to be stormy here, so it might not be as busy as it has been.

Today’s card was inspired by one of my 8 gardens in my yard.  I have an Iris garden and it is now in full bloom.  When I took these pictured there were still a lot of buds.  I look forward every spring for these to bloom.

Here is my card for today.

My sketch is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #438.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Pear Pizzazz card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered a panel of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the left side of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Marker, I colored a piece of the Open Weave Vanilla 1/2″ Ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  I wrapped the piece around the DSP and adhered it to the back of the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the card front to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the iris image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stems.  I cut the image out using the 4th largest Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the top of the panel and adhered it 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 Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the iris image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stem image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the iris image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on top of the stem image.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  I had the day off yesterday and I was going through some items that will be retiring and I came across some things that I hardly used. One of the items was the Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack.  There are so many different things in this card pack, I couldn’t believe I didn’t used it more.  So I sat and made a whole set of masculine cards for you today using all different elements from this set that are retiring.  The only thing not retiring is the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set, YAY!!  I don’t have measurements since this is a card pack.  All my cards are either 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ scored and folded at 4 1/4″ or 4 1/4″ X 11″ scored and folded at 5 1/2″.   My cards can be used as Birthday, Father’s Day, Encouragement or Anniversary cards.  Here are my cards for you.

This set makes great cards and can be used for scrapbook pages too.  I cut a 4 X6 panels down to fit my card base, added a sticker that came in the card pack and I was done.

There are 4″ X 6″ panels and 3″ X 4″ panels that I mixed and matched.  I added a little twine and the card was done. That easy.

Some I left the 3″ X 4″ panels and just added an embossed layer using the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (available June 3).

Some I cut down using some of my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  This one uses some of the Come Sail Away DSP also, along with stickers that come with the pack.

This card I added some of the Come Sail Away DSP which coordinates perfectly with the panels, added a sticker and done.

This one I used the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder, I added some of the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine and  the Sail Away Trinkets.

I embossed a panel using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder to add some extra texture to this antique looking panel along with some of the Come Sail Away DSP.  I added some Linen Thread and a Sail Away Trinket and I was done.

This card I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies along with the Come Sail Away DSP and some stickers that came with the pack.  I added a few Metallic Pearls and my card was done. The possibilities are endless with this card pack.

The Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack, Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine and Sail Away Trinkets will all be retiring from the catalog.  Once they are gone that’s it.  If this is something that you love, grab them now.  The best part is they are ALL on CLEARANCE at a discounted price.  Don’t wait!!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked all the cards I made using this card pack.  This is really an awesome set and there’s much more than I showed.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Easter

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  Yesterday was such a strange day weather wise here.  It was sunny, then it snowed, sunny again, then the hail came down strong, sunny again, then rain.  All this with heavy gusts of wind all day.  It did not feel like spring at all.  I was able to get one of our traditional Easter dishes made and my niece and nephew stopped by for some.  I handed it out the door to them, keeping a distance.  I can’t wait till this Social Distancing is over, but until then I do what I have to do.

I was all done with Easter cards, mailed all that I had out on Tuesday.  My son’s girlfriend asked me Thursday night if I could make her 3 Easter cards, of course I couldn’t say no.  Here’s one of the cards I made for her.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #588.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Just Add Ink Challenge #500.

I joined in with Inspire. Create Challenge #066.  Here is their Theme.

I started by adhering a panel of the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to a Daffodil Delight mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to a Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink 3 times.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set on either side of the stems in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I stamped the largest tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set 3 times on the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 1st tulip in Daffodil Delight Ink and sponged the edge using my Sponge Dauber with Melon Mambo Ink.  The 2nd tulip I stamped in Melon Mambo Ink, stamped it off once, then sponged the edge with my Sponge Dauber in Melon Mambo Ink.  The last tulip I stamped in Pumpkin Pie Ink and sponged the edge in Melon Mambo Ink using my Sponge Dauber.  I cut all the tulips out using my Tulip Builder Punch and cut the stem images out using my Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I adhered the tulips to the stamped stem images using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut the sentiment out in Daffodil Delight cardstock using my Word Wishes Dies and adhered it on the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink 3 times on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set twice on the stems in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie Inks on the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Daffodil Delight mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink 3 times on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie Inks on the stem images.  I adhered a panel of Perennial Essence 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! Lacey Wild Rose

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I sure hope everyone staying healthy.  Last week I got a new light for my crafting table, which meant I had to rearrange and clean my table.  While doing so, I came across bits and pieces of cards that I had lying around and never did anything with.  I decided to put some of them to good use and create a card from what I had lying around.  Here’s what I came up with using some of the pieces.

I had an Old Olive panel which I had embossed using the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a Whisper White panel which I had cut using the Stitched Lace Die, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to an Old Olive card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink.  I cut the panel out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I had a rose image from To A Wild Rose stamp set which I had stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I also had some leaves from To A Wild Rose stamp set which I had stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  The images were all cut using the Wild Rose Dies.  I adhered the die cut rose to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the leaves under my rose using Glue Dots.  I added a few  Seaside Spray 2019-2021 In- Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from To A Wild Rose stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the rose image from To A Wild Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.   I stamped the leaf image from To A Wild Rose stamp set by the rose and on the top of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the rose and leaf images from To A Wild Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the envelope front and envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Check your craft area, I bet you may have bits and pieces of cards you started and didn’t do anything with.  See what you can come up with.  We all have a lot of extra time since we’re not supposed to be going out, so it’s the perfect time to clean up our area.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Masculine Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?   We’re half way through the week already and heading to the weekend.  We’re expecting another rainy day here.  I’m not sure if Mother Nature knows it or not, but it’s winter.  We’re supposed to get snow in the winter not rain.  I really need a snow day to be able to craft all day while my family is shoveling the snow.

Onto my card for today.  I’ve got a masculine card for you using one of my favorite sets from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card.

My colors are from the Global Design Project Challenge #229.  Here are their colors.

My design is from the As You See It Challenge #219.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Snail.  I absolutely love these plaids in this DSP pack.  Perfect for masculine cards.

I stamped the fern image from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink on a panel of Crushed Curry Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Nested Dies.  I adhered the die cut to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a strip of Garden Green cardstock across the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals I adhered the strip of Night of Navy cardstock along the bottom of the Garden Green strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.  I adhered the sentiment strip below the Night of Navy strip using Glue Dots.  Using the Coordination Nature’s Thoughts Dies I cut the feather  out of a scrap of Crushed Curry cardstock and adhered it to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and Glue Dot.  I added a few gold Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off 3 times, across the sentiment.  I adhered a strip of the Country Club DSP to the side of the panel using Snail.  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 fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the envelope front 3 times without re-inking.  I adhered a panel of the Country Club 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! Hello Honey Bee for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects today. This week we had a Color Challenge, here are the colors we got to work with.

Here is my card using the colors. I’ll admit, I had to think for a moment what to make.

My card played along with the ‘Just Us Girls’ Challenge #521.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper, (Free Sale-A-Bration item), to a Whisper White card front using Snail. Using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker, I colored a piece of the 3/8″ Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon.  Once it was dry, I wrapped it around the card front.  With a smaller piece of the colored ribbon I tied a small bow and adhered it to the top of the ribbon using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the largest Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Detailed Bees Dies, I cut a panel of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP using the bee hive die.  I cut out 2 honey combs from a Gold Foil Sheet using the Detailed Bees Dies.  I adhered the honey combs to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the bee hive on top of the honey comb using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few of the ‘honey’ pieces to the honey comb using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 2 of the small bees from the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the bees out using the Detailed Bees Dies.  I colored the stripes on the bees in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers and I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the bees wings.  I adhered the bees to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I cut another one of the bee hives using the Detailed Bees Dies and the Golden Honey Specialty DSP.  I adhered the bee hive to the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the bee hive.  I stamped 2 more bees of the small bees from the Honey Bee stamp set on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the bees out using the Detailed Bees Dies.  I colored the bees stripes in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker and added some Clear Wink of Stella to the bees wings..  I adhered the bees to the bee hive using Glue Dots.  I adhered the Whisper  White panel to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small bee image from the Honey Bee stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the bees stripes using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad Pinwheel for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects today. This week we had a Color Challenge, here are the colors we got to work with.

Here is my card using these beautiful colors.  I just love Petal Pink and Pool Party together.

I thought I would pull out some scraps of DSP from the Annual Catalog.  I’ve been wanting to try this card and it’s a perfect way to use up some of your scraps.  I started by embossing a Petal Pink card front using the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.  I adhered the  embossed panel to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I took 2 Whisper White panels and adhered them to 2 Pool Party mats using Snail.  Using my Grid Paper for a guide, I adhered one on top of the other so that all sides and points were equal, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so I had a little wiggle room.

I started at the top and only putting Snail on one side of the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper square, I adhered it to the Whisper White panel making sure there was an equal edge around the top.  I continued around the squares adhering every other design of DSP overlapping the left corner of the square on the previous piece and making sure there was an equal edge around the tops.  Each square I put Snail on 2 of the sides.  When I got to the last piece I adhered the left side on the previous piece and tucked the right side under the 1st piece I put down (that is why you only put Snail on one side of the 1st piece).  I then added a little Snail to the 1st piece on the edge overlapping.  I hope this makes sense.  I adhered my pinwheel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow using the Petal Pink Metallic Edge Ribbon and adhered it to the center of the pinwheel using a Glue Dot.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set in Pool Party Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I cut a piece of Pool Party cardstock using the next size Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the Pool Party mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Petal Pink Frosted Flower Embellishment to the side of the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pool Party Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large and small flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the sides of the sentiment.  I colored the flowers in using my Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party 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 a cluster of flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the flowers in using my Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Bird Ballad DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  As always, if you have any questions or can’t understand my directions, drop me a message and I will try to explain it better.  Now that you’ve seen my card you can hit the next button to hop over to Amy Koenders blog or you can just click on the names below. Happy Hopping!!

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Chic Thank You Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  Well it’s back to work for me today.  After getting home early Tuesday morning (2am), and spending the day unpacking, doing laundry and running for groceries, it’s time to get back into the normal routine and relax.  Vacations are great, but I love my daily routine days.

For today’s card I made you a really quick one featuring the beautiful Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper.  I think this paper is absolutely gorgeous.  Really makes me want to go to Hawaii.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tropical Oasis DSP to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped one of the leaf images from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink over the sentiment stamping off once.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I adhered a piece of the Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon across the center of the card front using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the hibiscus image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I cut the image out using the Tropical Dies.  I adhered the hibiscus to the end of the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I added a couple Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the left side of the panel once in full strength and twice stamped off.  I adhered another hibiscus flower that I had stamped from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Lovely Lipstick and cut out using the Tropical Dies using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.   I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the So Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the side and bottom of the envelope front, some stamped full strength and some stamped off.  I adhered a panel of the Tropical Oasis 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 As A Bird Ballad

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I had my family over again for an after Christmas dinner.  It was much more relaxed and unplanned.   Well, 2019 is coming to an end tomorrow and I don’t know about you, but I sure am happy this year is ending.  This has not been the best year for me other than meeting up with my team members at OnStage twice, so I’m ready for 2020.  Is anyone  a  New Year’s resolution person of do you just go with the flow?  I’m coming up with some new ideas for the new year, but I stopped making resolutions since they never happen and I would just get angry with myself.  My moto is what will be, will be and I go with the flow.

For today’s card I used some items from the Annual Catalog.  Sometimes we get so caught up in the new catalogs starting that we forget about our Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to a Calypso Coral card front using Snail.  I stamped the large bird image from the Stampin’ Up! Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the image out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I cut a mat out using the larger Stitched Nested Labels Dies from a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock  I adhered the artwork to the mat using Snail.

I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Calypso Coral card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I chose not to put a sentiment on the front of my card today.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small and medium flower image and the leaf image from the Free As A Bird stamp set multiple times in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corners of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the flowers and leaves in using my Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large bird image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Petal Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Bird Ballad 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!!
