Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Sympathy

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week been?  The weekend is right around the corner, I hope you are starting to make some fun plans.

For today I have a quick and easy card for you, despite the layers.  These cards unfortunately I always like to have on hand.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with a few challenges today.  I joined in with TGIF Color Challenge #228.  Here are their colors.

I played along with Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #522.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Inspire. Create. Theme Challenge #051.  Here is their theme.

I started by embossing a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock with my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Merry Merlot Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Very Vanilla mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the scroll image from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the top and bottom of the panel.  I adhered the sentiment panel to a Very Vanilla mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored 2 Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blend Marker and adhered them to the scroll image.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the scroll images from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink around the Very Vanilla panel.  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 panel of the Merry Merlot Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap and the front of the envelope.

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

Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Laser-Cut Thinking of You

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  We’re around the bend to the weekend now, hope you are starting to make some fun plans.  I’m on my way to the beach for the day.  It’s suppose to be beautiful today, hopefully the sand won’t be blistering hot that we can’t even walk on it.  The beach is my ‘Happy Place’ where I can sit back and relax.  It’s one of the few places that I can actually relax just listening to the waves and seagulls.  I also get inspiration there walking along the water and searching for shells and sea glass.

So onto today’s card.  For those of you that know me, you know that I do not like fussy cutting.  It’s just something I am not good at.  I am determined to conquer this fussy cutting problem.  I did a lot of fussy cutting for my card today, right down to the tiny bee on the sentiment strip.   Here’s my card.

I used the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin for my card base today and the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper for all my artwork.  These cards are so delicate and beautiful.  I adhered a panel of Garden Green cardstock behind the laser cut panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue to make the laser-cutting stand out more.

I cut the largest stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies out of Terracotta Tile cardstock.  I adhered the flowers that I had fussy cut from the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP to the stitched circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the butterfly that I fussy cut from the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede In on a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I sponged the edges of the strip with my Garden Green Ink to soften them a little.  I adhered the bee I fussy cut from the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP to the corner of the sentiment strip with a tiny piece of a
Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I stamped the bottom with the grudge image from the Woven Heirloom stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Terracotta Tile mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the bottom front of the envelope that comes with the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut cards with the grudge image from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Mosaic Mood 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.

Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Thank You Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I went for a ‘walk’ with my husband and daughter to Duke Foundation which is right near where I live.  There are beautiful gardens, landscaping and waterfalls throughout the foundation.  There are bridges that go over different lakes on the property, one in particular leads to a meditation garden which is simply gorgeous.  Our walk ended up being over 3 hours and 7 1/2 miles long.

For today’s card I used a few different stamp sets.  I picked one for my focal image, one for the stripes and 2 different ones for the sentiments.  I like mixing stamps set on cards to give it a different look sometimes.  I was pretty happy how my card came out and all I used was Stamp, Ink and Paper, the basics to card making.   Here’s my card.

My card was inspired by 2 challenges.  First was the Colour & Sketch Challenge #326.  Here are their colors.

The other one that inspired me was the Just Add Ink Challenge #462.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the sketched flower from the Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the solid flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set on either side of the sketched flower in Gorgeous Grape Ink using the masking technique.  I stamped the leaves from the Floral Essence stamp set around the flowers in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I stamped the center of the flowers in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once.  I colored the sketched flower in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Marker to color the leaves.  I adhered the artwork to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail.

On a Whisper White card front I stamped the distressed filigree image from the Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set using Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow Inks.  I adhered the card front to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the top corner of the artwork, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up New Wonders Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on an angle.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the larger solid flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the smaller solid flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink, stamping off once, on either side of the Calypso Coral flower.  I stamped the leaves from the Floral Essence stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink around the flowers.  I stamped the flower centers in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set on the envelope front the same way I did on the inner liner.  I stamped the distressed filigree image from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set on the envelope flap the same way I did on the card front.

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

Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Sympathy Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?

For today I have a really quick and easy card for you that showcases one of the new Designer Series Papers that just came out in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  Take a look.

I started with a panel of Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink along the bottom section of the card base..

It always amazes me how one small panel of DSP can make such a beautiful card.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the small filigree image from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in the top two corners in Terracotta Tile Ink.  I stamped the border image from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink along the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the border image from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set along the bottom front of the envelope in Terracotta Tile Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.  There you have it.  With a little DSP you can make the most beautiful cards ever.  You don’t need to add embellishments or anything.

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