Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and the weekend is right around the corner.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. After taking a summer break, we’re back. Our 1st inspiration photo is Colorful Fall. Here is my card that I was inspired by the photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today. I was inspired by the beautiful colors of the leaves for my clean and layered card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us for our challenge #159. How are you inspired by this photo.

I started by randomly stamping the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Cling Stamp Set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Fresh Freesia Inks on a Basic White panel. I stamped the splotch image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink randomly on the panel.

I embossed the panel using my Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to a Thick Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using my Intricate Leaves Dies I cut 1 branch from a panel of Soft Suede cardstock and 3 leaves from panels of Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Fresh Freesia cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in soft Succulent Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies.

I arranges the branch and leaves on the sentiment die cut and adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Glue Dots. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small knot using the 3/8″ Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it to the stems using a Glue Dot. I added a few Brushed Metallic Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaves from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Fresh Freesia Ink around the top of the panel. I stamped the splotch image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink, stamping off once, around the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I stamped the leaves and splotch images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler, Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Inks on the envelope front and 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! Beauty of Tomorrow Thank You

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s week going? We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend already. I’m so excited, tomorrow I’ll be heading down the shore for the day. It’s our 1st, and probably last, time this summer. The beach is my happy place. I get lost in my thoughts listening to the waves and taking long walks along the water. I’m so looking forward to going.

Today’s card we made last night at our team meeting. My team leader, Jaimie, decided to do some mystery stamping. She gave us all the cardstock and DSP measurements. We had to pick the stamp set and colors we wanted and she talked us through making our cards. All our cards were different, but yet the same. It was so much fun, I can’t wait to do it again. Here’s the card I made.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for my card.

I started by randomly stamping the images from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider, Misty Moonlight and Soft Succulent Inks on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I embossed the panel using my Timework Type 3D Embossing Folder.

I cut the artwork into 1″ strips using my Paper Trimmer and adhered them to the Basic White mat, leaving a tiny space between the strips, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Frames Dies. I adhered a length of Soft Succulent 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon to the top of the artwork using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the images from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider, Misty Moonlight and Soft Succulent Inks on the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the images from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set on the envelope front in Cinnamon Cider, Misty Moonlight and Soft Succulent Inks. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow 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!!

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Cling Stamp Set along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a Harvest Meadow DSP card front to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the trio pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Old Olive & Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I embossed the panel using my Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and adhered the embossed panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal. On a small panel of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I made a multiloop bow using Linen Thread and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot. I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink above and below the sentiment. I colored the leaves in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the trio pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front.

Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Home For The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. I have a little sneak peek for you today coming from the August-December 2021 Mini Catalog that will be available August 3rd. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Home Cling Stamp Set which will be a Sale-A-Bration item starting on August 3rd.

I started by stamping the large image from the Feels Like Home stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image our using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I had to adjust the size of the die by cutting part of the image, turning the panel around and moving the die matching up the stitching and cutting the other half. I adhered the artwork to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the small flowerpot image from the Feels Like Home stamp set on the panel of Basic White cardstock in Crumb Cake Ink. I colored the image in using my Highland Heather and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the bottom of the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Feels Like Home stamp set in Crumb cake Ink. I tore the edges of the paper and sponged the rough edges using my Stamping Sponge and Crumb Cake Ink. I embossed a Crumb Cake card front using the new Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder (available August 3rd) and adhered it to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the sentiment panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the new Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set on a Basic White panel. I tore the edges of the panel and sponged the edges using my Stamping Sponge and Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Feels Like Home stamp set on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Highland Heather and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the larger image from the Feels Like Home stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the small flowerpot image from the Feels Like Home stamp set on the envelope flap. I colored the image with my Highland Heather and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.
