Stampin’ Up! Birthday Fishes 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?  I’m on my why to Philly today to visit the animals at the zoo.  The zoo has re-opened to members, but you had to make reservations.  I’m looking forward to going, other that the bit of having to wear a mask all day in the heat.  I’m going with my daughter, niece and her 2 boys and I’m sure we’ll have a lot of fun.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog.  If you are starting with me, be sure to visit everyone’s blog to see their projects. This week we had a Color Challenge.  Here are the colors we had to work from.  I chose Blackberry Bliss as my choice color.

Here is my card using these colors.

My design is from Try Stamping on Tuesdays Challenge #465.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Just Jade card front using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a panel of Whale of a Time 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of the Whale of a Time DSP using the 5th from the largest Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I cut a panel of Pacific Point cardstock using the 4th from the largest Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the DSP to the Pacific Point panel using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a piece of Vellum cardstock I stamped the turtle image from Stampin’ Up! Whale Done Photopolymer Stamp Set once in Just Jade Ink and once in Pacific Point Ink.  I stamped the sentiment and the school of fish image from Whale Done stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I cut the image out using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to the card front using a couple tiny dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added some Whale of a Time Sequins to the vellum panel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment form the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the turtle image from the Whale Done stamp set on either side of the sentiment, once in Just Jade Ink and once in Pacific Point Ink.  I stamped the seaweed images from the Whale Done stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Just Jade Ink.  I stamped the school of fish image 3 times in Blackberry Bliss Ink and I stamped the bubble image from the Whale Done stamp set in Pool Party Ink above the fish.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the seaweed images from the Whale Done stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the sides of the envelope front.  I stamped the school of fish image from the Whale Done stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink multiple times across the bottom of the envelope front and stamped the bubble image from the Whale Done stamp set in Pool Party Ink above the fish.  I adhered a panel of Whale of a Time 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! Seaside Notions Birthday 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 Karen Finkle’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Celebrate Summer”.  We can interpret this however we want.  I chose to make a birthday care since I have a lot of summer birthdays.  Here’s my card.

I played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #343.  Here is their Inspiration.  I’d like to be at any of these places right now.  I love spending time on the beach, it’s so peaceful and relaxing to me listening to the waves and seagulls.

I started by stamping the coral, seahorse and seashell images from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Notions Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered them each to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from Seaside Notions stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of a Petal Pink card front and embossed the panel using my Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the matted panel and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Calypso Coral card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Elegant Faceted Gems.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the coral image from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Soft Suede Ink and colored it in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 seahorse and coral images from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front and the seashell image on the envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin’ Up! Slice of Happiness

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off? Hope everyone is having a productive one.  I’m hoping the weather holds out and I can take a trip down the shore this week.  Where we go, we have to buy tickets in advance now with everything going on. Tickets go on sale at 7am and last week my niece and nephew tried to go and they were sold out before 7:10.  They are really limiting how many people can go on the beach, so fingers crossed that no one wants to go Thursday.

I have one more card for you today using the adorable Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit Photopolymer Stamp Set from the beginner catalog and it’s a super simple one.  If you are new at stamping, this catalog is perfect for you.  It all starts with simple stamping, I just kind of added a little extra.  Here’s my card for you.

My colors were from TGIF Challenge #271.  Here are their colors.

I started by cutting 6 of the smallest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies out of Whisper White cardstock and 6 out of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  I adhered the squares to a Granny Apple Green card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the citrus fruit images from the Cute Fruit stamp set.  I stamped the outer lime image in Granny Apple Green and the inner lime image in Granny Apple Green stamped off once.  I stamped the outer orange image in Mango Melody Ink and the inner orange image in Mango Melody Ink stamped off once.  I stamped the outer grapefruit image in Mango Melody Ink stamped off once and the inner grapefruit image in Flirty Flamingo Ink stamped off once.  I stamped the smiley face image from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the limes in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I adhered all the fruit images to the stitched white squares using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Cute Fruit stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Mango Melody panel.  I cut the panel out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  There wasn’t one that fit perfectly so I had to make my own.  I did this by cutting part way through with the 2nd smallest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I moved the rectangle and made sure that the stitches were lined up, turned it around and ran it through my die cutting machine part way through again.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a multi looped bow with Linen Thread and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the matted card front to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the fruit with out faces and the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment form the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the citrus fruit image from the Cute Fruit stamp set around the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Inks.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then 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 citrus fruit image from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the bottom of the envelope front in Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Ink.  I stamped the face image from the Cute Fruit on the fruit in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Wildly Grateful

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  We had our brunch yesterday then gave my husband his Outside Pizza Oven.  It was a big hit.  He loved it.  We have so much pizza right now, I think we might be eating it all week.  He had a lot of fun cooking in it.  I think next time I might have to invite a lot of people over if he’s going to make this much, LOL.

For today I have a quick and easy card for you.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from The Color Throwdown Challenge #598.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #440.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with TGIF Technique Challenge #269.  Here is their theme.

I started by making my own designer series paper by randomly stamping 4 of the images from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set  on a panel of Whisper White cardstock using Coastal Cabana and Flirty Flamingo Inks.  Some images I stamped full strength ink and some were stamped off once to give the paper different shades of the colors.

I adhered my card front to a Coastal Cabana card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  There wasn’t a die the size I needed, so I had to make my own size.  I did this by cutting the panel part way with the die.  I then turned the panel and moved the die to the size I wanted my rectangle, making sure the stitches were lined up.  I then cut the panel part way through again.

I adhered the sentiment to a Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Designer Series Paper using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the framed sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just in the center section of the die cut.  I added a few Coastal Cabana Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front and sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the 4 images from the Lovely You stamp set in Coastal Cabana and Flirty Flamingo Ink randomly around the edges of a Whisper White panel.  Some were stamped full strength ink and some were stamped off once.  I didn’t put a sentiment on today’s card because I wanted to write my own thank you.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the 4 images from the Lovely You stamp set in full strength ink on the envelope front and stamped off once on 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! Seaside View for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend?  I have to work all day Saturday, but Sunday I have off.  I was sure to tell my boss on Wednesday that I had plans on Father’s Day and he doesn’t believe it’s going to be all that busy that I would have to go in, YAY!!

I have a double Z-Fold card for you today using one of my favorite new sets from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Sunday Stamps Color Challenge #233.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Just Add Ink Challenge #510.  Here is their theme.

I started with the smaller Sahara Sand Z-Fold card by scoring it at 4 1/2″ & 7 1/2″.  I embossed the front fold using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the larger image from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside View Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Just Jade and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I then stamped the waves in the water using the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink.  I stamped the sand speckles from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Notions Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I cut the image out using the 4th largest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the front of the Sahara Sand card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I fussy cut the sentiment and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the top corner of the artwork.  I added a few Calypso Coral Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

I adhered a panel of the Whale of a Time 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the back panel of the large Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the small card base to the larger card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the back panel and Stampin’ Dimensionals on the front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Seaside View stamp set on 2 different panels of Whisper White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the Adirondack chair image from the Seaside View stamp set on one panel and the palm tree and bird images from the Seaside View stamp set on the other panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, Just Jade and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panels to Balmy Blue mats using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the chair and palm tree images from the Seaside View stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Whale of a Time 6 X 6 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! Forever Fern Birthday for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend?  I was suppose to have off this Sunday, but my boss asked me if I could come in to relieve my cashiers for a lunch break.  Of course I said yes, but I told him to make it worth my while, I was going to go in the office to get a little work done.  Weekends have been beyond crazy busy in the store and we are still kind of in lock down here.  I can’t image what it’s going to be like when things open up again.

For today’s card I was playing around with some of the new items in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s what I came up with.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #232.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with Always Fun Challenge #165.  They have a theme challenge and it’s “Layers”.

I played along with Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #123.  Their challenge is ‘More Than One Score (Fold)’.

I also joined in with Just Add Ink Challenge #508.  Here is their challenge.

I started by adhering the 2 panels of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to the front of the card base using the new Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed the small panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the Greenery Embossing Folder and adhered it to the front of the smaller card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the 2 similar fern images from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the images out using the Forever Flourishing Dies.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, which I cut using the 5th from the largest Layering Squares Dies, I stamped one of the larger fern images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink around the Pear Pizzazz image multiple times.  From a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock I cut 2 of the eucalyptus images using the Forever Flourishing Dies.  I cut 1 of the leafy images from the Forever Flourishing Dies from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.

I cut the 2nd & 3rd largest squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies from a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White square to the larger stitched square using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered one of the Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper fern pieces to the artwork using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I arranged and adhered all the other fern/leaf/eucalyptus pieces using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Glue Dots.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the small stitched square panel and adhered it to the small card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork above the small square, overlapping it, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I made a multiloop bow out of Linen Thread and tied it off using the Gold Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  I adhered the bow to the bottom corner of the artwork using a Glue Dot.  On a strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the small card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

I adhered the small card base to the left gate fold of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leafy image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leafy image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the bottom of the envelope front.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink around the leafy image.  I adhered a panel of Forever Greenery 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! Pressed Petals Hello CAS

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  I hope you are all enjoying your long weekend.  I’ll be at work all day today, but I have off tomorrow and Tuesday, YAY!!

I have another Clean and Simple card for you today using up some more of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I love when the paper does the work for you.  Here’s my card.

Isn’t this paper just gorgeous!!  If you are liking this paper, grab it while you can.  It’ll be retiring June 2nd.  It’s on the retiring list and once it’s gone that’s it.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Grace’s Garden Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink on the top of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP panel.  I cut the panel out using the largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I adhered the DSP panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Snail and then to a Merry Merlot card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Nobel Peacock Rhinestones to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Grace’s Garden stamp set in the center of a Very Vanilla panel in Merry Merlot Ink.  I adhered 2 strips of Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to either side of the sentiment using Snail.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Pressed Petals Specialty DSP to the front of the envelope and 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! 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! Touched My Heart Sympathy CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers, grandmothers, God mothers, mothers to be, step mothers, aunts, animal mothers and all our angle mothers.  I hope you all have a very enjoyable day. I’m hoping to get in some crafting time since we really can’t go anywhere.  This will be my first without my mom, so it’s going to be a little tough for me.

Today’s card is one of those we don’t like to make, but we have to.  I received my preorder last week and one of the sets I received was a Host exclusive set which just happen to have a Sympathy sentiment in it.  Here’s my card for today.

My design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #434.  They had the perfect clean and simple design for my sympathy card.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Old Olive Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to an Old Olive card base using Snail.

I cut 2 rectangles out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies from a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I embossed the rectangles using the new Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder (available June 3rd).  I adhered the rectangles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Touched My Heart Host Cling Stamp Set (available June 3rd) in Old Olive Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Touched My Heart stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink below the sentiment, stamping off twice.  I cut the image out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the Touched My Heart stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on either side of the sentiment stamping off once.  I adhered a strip of the Old Olive Regals 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake 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 leaf images from the Touched My Heart stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Old Olive Regals 6 X 6 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. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a wonderful day.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s my card using this sketch.

My colors were inspired by  CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #369.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Terracotta Tile card base using Snail.

On a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Versamaark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added 3 Purple Posy 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the flower centers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a Terracotta Tile strip of cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered a piece of Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scallop Linen Ribbon using a tiny amount of Snail to hold it in place.  I adhered the sentiment strip on top of the ribbon using Glue Dots.  I added a Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dot to the end of the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set, which I colored using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Marker, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set, which I colored using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Marker, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Pressed Petals 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.
