Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Thanks

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  It’s going to be a hot one here, so I will definitely be staying in.  At 8am the real feel outside was already 86 and they are saying we are suppose to be breaking record highs today.  They are saying triple digits.  Perfect crafting day in my books.

For today I have a quick and easy card for you that requires very little stamping.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Just Add Ink Challenge #514.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal.  This DSP is so realistic looking I have to touch it every time thinking it is raised.  My favorite from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog for sure.  I adhered the card front to a Smoky Slate card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  From a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock I cut the larger Stitched So Sweetly Die and adhered the die cut sentiment to it using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhere a piece of the 3/8″ Pool Party Sheer Ribbon to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the matted sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered them to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White Panel.  I stamped the small confetti image from the So Sentimental stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink, stamping off once each time, on either side of the sentiment and in the corners.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the larger confetti image from the So Sentimental stamp set multiple times across the bottom of the envelope front in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend with whatever you do and try to stay cool.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Seaside View Hello for 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?  With any luck, by the time you are reading this, I’ll be at the Jersey Shore for the day.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment 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.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Pool Party card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the palm tree and Adirondack chair images from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside View Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the sand image from the Stampin’ Up! High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink multiple times on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the grass image from the High Tide stamp set in Just Jade Ink around the palm tree.  I colored the sky using my Balmy Blue and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the birds from the Seaside View stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored all the images in using my Cinnamon Cider, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Just Jade, Misty Moonlight and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the artwork to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the image out using the smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seaside View stamp set in Just Jade Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the palm tree and bird images from the Seaside View stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel and either side of the sentiment.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Just Jade and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party 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 palm tree and bird images from the Seaside View stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Just Jade and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Thanks

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already and before you know it the weekend will be here.

For today’s card I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Cling Stamp Set.  Here is my card for today.

My design is from Fab Friday Challenge #193.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered it to a Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Peony Garden DSP to a panel of Petal Pink cardstock which I cut using the 2nd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I cut the left side of the matted panel even with the DSP panel.  I adhered a piece of a Square Vellum Doilie to the bottom of the artwork using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Prized Peony stamp set in Gray Granite Ink.  I stamped the small peony image from the Prized Peony stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the end of the strip.  I cut the strip into a banner using my Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Prized Peony stamp set in Gray Granite Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small peony image from the Prized Peony stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered a strip of Peony Garden DSP to the left side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small peony image from the Prized Peony stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope in Petal Pink Ink.  I adhered a panel of Peony Garden DSP to the envelope Flap.

Stampin’ Up! Anniversary Rose for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday and a holiday weekend.  Hopefully most of you have today off for a nice long weekend and have some fun plans ahead.  I don’t normally work on Friday’s, so I’m off today and tomorrow.  This is one of the few holidays that our store is closed, and it’s been like this for 60+ years YAY!!

So, did you ever have one of those days you had all planned out and nothing went as planned.  That was yesterday for me.  I made a To Do List as soon as I got up at 5am (yes I’m an early bird).  I knew everything I had to get done and I knew I had plenty of time to get it all done.  Then vertigo hit followed by a panic attack.  I’ve never had an episode before so I didn’t know what was happening.  Long story short, I only got 1 thing done on my list and was not happy. Guess today’s another day to try.

For today’s fun fold I tried another one I’ve never done before.  I can’t remember what it’s called, so I’m calling it a flip card.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors, once again, were inspired by some roses I have.  I ordered plants a couple years ago and they sent me a free St. Patrick’s Day rose bush.  It looked dead when I got it, but I planted it anyway.  I had no clue what color, I thought it would be orange or green.  Here’s what I got.

This was the 1st rose of the season.

I went out yesterday to these 2 beauties.

I was amazed how the same plant could have 2 different color roses on it, 1st to the 2nd 2.

I started by cutting out the front of a Pear Pizzazz card base using the 2nd largest square from the Layering Squares Dies and set the square to the side.  I randomly stamped the outline leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink around on the card front.

I stamped the rose image from To a Wild Rose stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Wild Rose Dies.  I cut the 3rd largest square from the Layering Squares Dies out of the panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped it multiple times with the outline leaf image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set.  I colored the leaves in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the 3rd largest scallop square out of a panel of Gray Granite cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies.

On the panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink and cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Gray Granite scallop square to the Pear Pizzazz square I cut out from the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the stamped Whisper White panel on top of the Gray Granite square using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the die cut rose to the Whisper White  square using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front and 1 to the rose.

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink on a Thick Whisper White panel.  I used Thick Whisper White because I knew this was the part that would be opened and closed and get a lot of wear.  I stamped the outlined leaf image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink, some full strength and some stamped off.  I stamped the rose image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I adhered a Gray Granite panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I scored the Thick Whisper White panel at 2″ & 4″ and adhered it to the top left of the Gray Granite panel using Tear & Tape just on the right 2″ X 4 1/4″ part.  I accordion folded the Whisper White panel and closed the card front on top of it.  I adhered the artwork to the Whisper White panel through the square on the card front, fitting it back in where it came out of.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the outlined rose image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the outlined leaf image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink around the rose and on the envelope flap, some full strength and some stamped off.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. I hope you all have a very safe and fun 4th of July.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Hip Hip Hooray

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  Does anyone have plans for Father’s Day tomorrow?  My daughter and I are making my husband a big brunch. My niece, her husband and boys are coming over to join us.  We started doing this a couple years ago and he loves it.

If any of you saw my post on Thursday for our blog hop, you saw that I had an oops.  I used the wrong color.  I had made another card to use, but I was told it was ok the colors were close enough.  Here’s the other card I made using the right colors.  My older little nephew graduated from his elementary school and moved to the intermediate school, so I wanted to make him a card too.  He’s 9, so it’s a little harder since he’s too old for cutesy things, but not old enough for grown up things yet.

I played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #276.  Here is their theme.

I started by cutting a panel of Just Jade and Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Best Plaid Builder Dies.  I adhered the Pretty Peacock panel first onto a Pear Pizzazz card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the Just Jade cut panel on top of the Pretty Peacock panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 1/4″ Ribbon around the panel tied a knot and adhered the card front to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the 2nd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I stamped the 2 sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink  on the cut panel.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  When you cut the cardstock using the Best Plaid Builder Dies you are left with a lot of squares.  I decorated the inside of the card using these squares adhering them down with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock 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 adhered a strip of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to the envelope front and a panel 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! Flowering Blooms

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  I was able to tackle another one of my gardens yesterday that needed a lot of TLC.  This one wraps around my house and is lined with these large boulders.  I was doing great at the beginning, but after 4 hours of lifting them and raking the dirt, I was exhausted.  My daughter was helping me and was doing great until she dropped one on her foot.  These boulders have to be at least 20-30lbs each, which moving 1 or 2 isn’t bad, but after moving around 40 we were done.  It does look much nicer now, so it was well worth the pain.

For today’s card I played with another new bundle I purchased from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by  Color Throwdown Challenge #597.  Here are their colors.

My sketch is from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #374.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Blooms Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Flowering Dies.

I cut another panel of Whisper White cardstock using the 2nd largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and embossed it using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the flower to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On the Thick Whisper White card base I stamped the Bokeh Dots image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink on the top and bottom of where I was putting the artwork.

I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the card front.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Rich Razzleberry sequins from the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins.  I tied a small bow using the 1/8″ Night of Navy Ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the bottom of the flower using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large flower image from the Flowering Blooms stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rich Razzleberry mat using Stampin’ Seal 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 flower image from the Flowering Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the Bokeh Dots images from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Balmy Blue and Rich Razzleberry Inks 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! Happiest Of Birthdays 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 Amy Koenders blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Birthday”. I wanted to make a fun card this month, so I decided to use a new set that I just received from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and the new fun DSP.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Purple Posy card front using Stampin’ Seal.  There are so many great designs to choose from in this pack of DSP, I had to have my daughter pick for me.  I wrapped a piece of the 1/2″ Purple Posy ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack and tied a bow on the side of the panel.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the largest sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered the cut sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Purple Posy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Purple Posy Playing With Pattern Resin Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of the Playing With Pattern 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You Graduation Cards for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s short week?  We’re upon a weekend again and things are starting to open up slowly here.  The Jersey shores opened last weekend and I believe hair salons are opening up next week.  Time will tell.  I have to work both days this weekend, Sunday is the last of the month.  Where did May go???  What is everyone else doing this weekend?

For those of you who know me you know that I was a Girl Scout leader for 13 years.  Last week a couple of my girls that I was very close with graduated from college.  One with a nursing degree and one with a teaching degree.  I watched them grow from Kindergarten on up.  Also my daughter’s best friend graduated with honors with a Bachelors degree in behavioral science and a minor in history.  She is like a 2nd daughter to me.  I am so proud of all these girls, so of course I had to make them all graduation cards.  Unfortunately, some of the items I used have been sold out since before I could get my cards posted.  Most of you know I don’t do any 2 cards alike, but since they are all for graduation they are all similar.  I also looked up each of the girls school colors and coordinated the cards accordingly, one was navy & white, one was blue & green and one was blue & red.  Here are my cards for today.

I started by adhering panels of Regals and Neutrals Designer Series Paper to the card bases, which are 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″, using Snail.  The card bases are Garden Green, Night of Navy and Real Red.  I adhered the small cards to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The small cards are Garden Green, Night of Navy and Real Red.

On Whisper White panels I stamped the dancing woman image from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the images in using my Dark Night of Navy (for the top one), Light Night of Navy, Dark Granny Apple Green, Dark Real Red and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the top artwork to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and the bottom 2 artwork to Blueberry Bushel mats using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the front of the small cards using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To make the caps, I cut 1 Night of Navy and 2 Blueberry Bushel pieces of card stock to  1/2″ X 1/2″ and adhered them to the womens heads using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  To make the tassels I took a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine and folded it in half and tied a knot.  I then frayed the ends to look like a tassel and adhered them to the caps using Glue Dots.  I trimmed them so they weren’t too long.  For the top one, I cut the sentiment from Well Written Dies out of a panel of Night of Navy cardstock and adhered it under the artwork using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I added a few Night of Navy Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the artwork.  For the bottom 2, I stamped the sentiments from Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set and Beautiful You stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut one of the sentiments out using the Timeless Label Punch and the other out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered the sentiments to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots to the Garden Green card and Red Rhinestones to the Real Red card.

On the inside of all the cards I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy or Blueberry Bushel Inks.  On the Night of Navy and Garden Green cards I stamped the sentiment from Peaceful Moments stamp set below the 1st sentiment in either Night of Navy or Blueberry Bushel Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panels to Night of Navy (for the top card) and Blueberry Bushel (for the bottom 2 cards) mats using Snail and then to the inside of the small cards using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my cards I decorated 3 Medium Whisper White Envelopes.  I stamped the dancing woman image from the Beautiful You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on all 3 envelopes.  I colored the images in using my Dark Granny Apple Green, Ivory, Night of Navy and Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set on the envelope fronts in Garden Green, Night of Navy and Real Red Inks.

I adhered panel of Neutrals of Regals 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flaps.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my cards and will give it a try.  The measurements for the cards are below, they are all identical I just placed the small card fronts in a different spot on each one.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Thank You for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends 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 my blog. 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 had to work with.

Here’s what I came up with for these colors.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to a So Saffron mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to an Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of So Saffron cardstock using the larges scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis DSP to the scalloped rectangle using Snail.  I adhered a piece of the Braided Burlap Trim to the card front using Glue Dots and adhered the matted DSP to the card front, on top of the Burlap Trim, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Mango Melody  Ink.  I cut the image out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a Tropical Oasis Trinket to the sentiment die.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Mango Melody Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pineapple image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set on the bottom of the panel.  To get the 2-tone color, I stamped just the bottom portion of the pineapple in my So Saffron Ink and colored the top leaves using my Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a So Saffron 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 pineapple image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set on the front of the envelope getting the 2-tone by stamping the bottom in my So Saffron Ink and coloring the top using my Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis 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! Thank You By The Dock for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends 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 my blog. 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’s what I came up with for these colors.

I started by adhering a panel of the Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Whisper White mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted card front to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, I then embossed the sentiment using the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (available June 3rd).  I cut a panel of Night of Navy cardstock using the larger die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the larger die cut using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the fern image from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink 3 times on a panel of Vellum cardstock and twice on a panel of Garden Green cardstock.  I cut the images out using my Nature’s Thoughts Dies.

I adhered a piece of the Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon with a small amount of Snail to the card front.  I arranged the fern the way I liked it on the card front.  I added a little Snail to the back of the matted sentiment  and pressed it down on the fern.  I lifted it all up and added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and fern and adhered it to the card front.  I added a few Night of Navy Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the By The Dock stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set below the sentiment.  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 on the envelope front multiple times without reinking the stamp.  I adhered a panel of the Country Club 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 to Amy’s page. Or you can just click on the names below to go directly to all the blogs! Happy Hopping!!
