Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to our monthly Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop. The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies put together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some gorgeous projects.  This month our theme is ‘CELEBRATE SPRING’.  We can interpret this any way we would like to.  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects.  If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.  I’ve used the FREE with Sale-A-Bration , Painted Seasons Bundle and the Four Seasons Famelits Dies for my card today.  Here is my card for today.

I love doing Fancy Fold cards, it’s one of my favorites.  Whenever I see a different fold, I keep practicing until I get it right.  I just love the challenge of different folds.  My card has a lot of pieces to it.  All the measurements are listed below.  I started with a Pool Party panel and scored it at 5 1/4″.  Putting the short side on the edge of my Stampin’ Trimmer, I lined up the long edge at the 1″ mark.  I cut from 3″ to 7 1/2″.  I then put the long edge with the 3″ side on the edge of my Stampin’ Trimmer and the 5 1/4″ score mark to the right and scored at the 3″ mark.  Keeping the cardstock the same, I scored the 1″ piece at 7 1/2″.  I hope this makes sense to you.

Here is what it will look like once you fold on the score lines.

I adhered my Wood Textures Designer Series Paper on Petal Pink mats using Snail. I adhered my Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper on the smaller Petal Pink mats using Snail.  I adhered all the matted pieces to the scored Pool Party panel where they all fit using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Pool Party card front to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Big Shot I cut the word ‘friend’ out from the Well Written Framelit Dies in the Wood Textures DSP.  It did not photograph well, but it show up much better in person.  I adhered it to the bottom front section using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock, using my Stamparatus,  I stamped the succulent flower image from the Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons Stamp Set (FREE Sale-A-Bration item) 3 times.  I stamped 2 in Pool Party Ink and 1 in Petal Pink Ink. On the Petal Pink flower I used my Sponge Dauber and lightly went around the edges with Pool Party Ink and then stamped over the 1st image.  I did the same with the Pool Party flowers except I used Petal Pink Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the same stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist Ink 3 times.  Using my Big Shot, I cut all the images out with my Four Seasons Framelits Dies (available for a limited time during the month of March).  I adhered 2 of the flowers and the 3 leaf images to the front section of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I adhered the 3rd flower to the back section of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of Silver and Petal Pink Bakers Twine around the front section of the card front and tied a bow.  I added some Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the succulent flower from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock stamping it off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink over the flower.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the succulent flower from the Painted Seasons stamp set on the front of the envelope once in Petal Pink Ink and twice in Pool Party Ink.  I adhered a piece of Painted Seasons DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card today.

Stampin’ Up Beautiful Detailed Anniversary Card for Fab Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Well the weekend is upon us already.  Have you made any plans?  Don’t forget to move your clocks ahead Saturday before you go to bed or Sunday morning as soon as you get up.

For today’s card I used the absolutely gorgeous Beautiful Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.  This paper has a Petal Pink side and a Whisper White side.  I chose to use the Petal Pink side for my card.  Take a look.

I played along with the Fab Friday color challenge #158 for my card today.  Their colors are just beautiful together.  Here’s their color challenge.

I started with a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock and adhered a panel of the Beautiful Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue to it.  I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Big Shot I cut out 2 hearts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies.  I cut one in Petal Pink card stock and one in Calypso Coral cardstock.  On the Petal Pink heart I stamped the Happy Anniversary from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I connected the Petal Pink heart to the scalloped Calypso Coral heart using Stampin’ Dimensionals then adhered it to the card front.  I cut out a few embellishments from the Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies in Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I adhered them under the hearts using Stampin’ Dimensionals or Glue Dots.  I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the embellishments.  I colored a Heart Epoxy Droplet using my Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend Marker and adhered it to the Petal Pink heart.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the heart cluster from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely Stamp Set in Calypso Coral Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Snail then adhered it to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the heart cluster image from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on both sides of the envelope front and around the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  I love when I can let the paper do most of the work for me.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Lovely Lattice White Wash Technique

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started out?

For today’s card I’ve done the White Wash Technique for you.  I haven’t done this in a while and I just love how it turns out.  Here’s my card.

I’ve played along with a few challenges for today’s card.  1st is ‘Just Us Girls‘ word week challenge # 477.  Be sure to stop by to play along and see what everyone has made.  Here is their challenge.  This one was pretty easy and left a wide variety.

The next one is Paper Craft Crew Simple Stamping Theme Challenge #328.  I don’t do simple that often, but I really enjoyed it with this card.  This one was a little harder since I’m so used to using multiple layers.  Here’s their challenge.

Last was the Sunday Stamps Natures Hues challenge #199.  They had a some gorgeous colors to work with.  Be sure to stop by and see what everyone has made and play along with their challenge.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the large image from the  Stampin’ Up Lovely Lattice Stamp Set, (Free Sale-A-Bration item), in Versamark Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  Using my Aqua Painter I colored the flowers with Craft Whisper White Ink and let it dry throughly.  I actually let it go overnight to make sure it was good and dry.

Once it was dry, using my Blender Pens I added color to the flowers starting darker in the middle and blending it out to the edges.  I used Flirty Flamingo, Gorgeous Grape and Pacific Point Inks for my flowers and Coastal Cabana Ink for my leaves.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock and made a banner out of it.  I adhered the banner to the left side if the card front using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a Gorgeous Grape Glitter Enamel Dot to the sentiment banner and a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Well Said stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the smaller flowers from the Lovely Lattice stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corners and colored them in using my Blender Pen with the same colors as I did on the card front.

I finished my card by decorating a Medium Craft Envelope.  Unfortunately these envelopes are no longer available, but it seemed to go beautifully with my card.  I stamped the large flower image from the Lovely Lattice stamp set on the front of the envelope and colored it in the same as I did for the card front with my Blender Pen.  I stamped the smaller flowers from the same stamp set on the envelope flap and colored them in the same as I did for the inner liner.

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

Stampin’ Up Well Written Wedding Card for Watercooler Wednesday

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  Were you able to get any crafting done?  I was Saturday after work and most of Sunday.  I may even get some in today on this nice snowy day.  This weather really needs to get its times straight.  It’s almost spring.  We shouldn’t be having this much snow now.

For today’s card I made a really quick and easy, Clean and Simple card for you.  Take a look.

I played along with the Watercooler Wednesday challenge.  This was a really open challenge this week and I loved it. Be sure to stop by to play along and see what everyone has made. Here is their challenge..

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Again using my Big Shot I cut the ‘bride & groom’ out using the Well Written Framelits Dies and Champagne Foil Sheets.

I adhered the sentiment to a piece of Vellum paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Vellum to the card front using Glue Dots.

I wrapped a piece of Silver Metallic Edged Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Smoky Slate ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely Stamp  Set in Powder Pink Ink in the 2 corners.  I adhered the Whisper White panel 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 flowers from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Powder Pink Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try.  The Country Floral DTIEF is a FREE item with a $50.00 order during Sale-A-Bration.  This is truely a beautiful embossing folder.  I’m really hoping it carries over to the Annual Catalog.  Happy Stamping!!
