Stampin’ Up! Special Someone 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?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is our theme for this week.

My niece needed a card for a friends son who’s turning 4 and she wanted something with animals.  Worked out perfectly for me.  Here’s my take on the theme.

I started by embossing a panel of Pacific Point cardstock using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder.  Since this is a mini embossing folder, I embossed half the panel then moved the embossing folder over to the other side, being sure to match up the dots, and embossed again.    I adhered the card front to a Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock using the grass die from the Special Day Dies and adhered it to the bottom of a Balmy Blue panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I cut 3 rectangles out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the racoon outline image from the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the racoon fill image over the outlined image in Sahara Sand Ink.  I stamped the squirrel and mouse outline images from the Special Someone stamp set in Basic Gray Ink.  I stamped the squirrel fill image over the outlined image in Smoky Slate Ink and the mouse fill image over the outlined image in Smoky Slate Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the balloon outline and string images from the Special Someone stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point and Real Red Inks.  I stamped the balloon fill images over the outlined images in the same colors stamping off once.  I cut all the images out using my Special Day Dies.

I adhered the racoon image to the largest rectangle and the squirrel and mouse images to the smaller rectangles using Glue Dots, tucking them in the grass a little.  I adhered the rectangles to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the strings and balloons to the squirrel and mouse using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On 1/4″ strips of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Special Someone stamp set in Pacific Point Ink and adhered them to the artwork using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the outline balloon and string images from the Special Someone stamp set around the sentiment in Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point and Real Red Inks.  I stamped the balloon fill image over the outlined images in the same colors stamping off once.  I had stamped and cut out 2 of the racoon images on the Whisper White panel so I decided to adhere one of them to the inside using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the racoon outline image from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the racoon fill image over the outlined image in  Sahara Sand Ink.  I stamped the balloon outline and string images from the Special Someone stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point and Real Red Inks on the envelope flap.  I stamped the  balloon fill image over the outlined images in the same colors stamping off once.

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! Beautiful Autumn Hello 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?  We have a couple new hoppers with our group. Welcome Julie Johnson and Nicole Bloxom, so excited that you joined us.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the fun sketch we had to work from.

Here is my card using this sketch.

I played along with the Paper Players Tic Tac Toe Challenge #506.  I went across the top. Here is their board.

I also joined in with Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #129. Their theme is ‘Just Saying Hello’.

I started by cutting 5 each of the smallest square from the Layering Squares Dies in Cajun Craze Cardstock, Crumb Cake Cardstock and Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I embossed the Cajun Craze squares using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder and I embossed the Crumb Cake squares using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder.

I arranged the squares on a panel of Copper Brushed Metallic Paper and adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped 3 of the outline maple leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink and the fill image of the maple leaf in Cajun Craze Ink, stamped off once, over the outline image.  I stamped 2 of the outline oak leaf image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Bumblebee Ink and the fill image of the oak leaf in Bumblebee Ink, stamped off once, over the outlined image.  I stamped 3 of the acorn outline image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the fill images of the acorn in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off once, for the top and Crumb Cake Ink, stamped off once, for the bottom.  I stamped 2 of the pinecone outline image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off once, and the fill image from the pinecone image in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off twice, over the outlined image.  Using the Autumn Punch Pack I punched out the acorns, maple leaves and oak leaves, I fussy cut the pinecones using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the acorns, leaves and pinecones on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals in each cardstock square.  I wrapped a piece of Mint Macaron Basket Weave Ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, around the metallic card front adhering it in the back using Stampin’ Seal.  I wrapped a piece of the Metallic ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack around the basket weave ribbon and tied a bow.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment and card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the acorn, leaves and pinecone images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set around the sentiment the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the acorn, leaves and pinecone images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper 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.

This week we have 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 for today using this sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Shaded Spruce card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the  Stampin’ Up! Coming Home Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the car, house, trees and wreath in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored all the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Shaded Spruce, Smoky Slate, So Saffron and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut all the images out using my Home Together Dies.

From the same panel of Whisper White cardstock, I cut the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the 2 largest trees to the oval using Glue Dots.  I adhered the house, trees and car to the oval using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the wreath to the house using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the oval to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the Whisper White panel and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the top of the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wishes & Wonder Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large and small trees from the Coming Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Shaded Spruce and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the card and house images from the Coming Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Partial Die Cut

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re halfway through the week and on the downhill to the weekend.  Hope you are starting to make some plans for something fun.  We had an awesome time at the beach yesterday.  The water was beautiful, it was a bit hazy, but still a wonderful day.  I went for my usual walk along the water looking for shells and sea glass.  Our day got cut a little short by a thunderstorm that came rolling in really fast.  Everyone got called out of the water as soon as the lightening and thunder started.  It was a great day spent with my daughter, nephew, niece and her 2 boys.

For today I tried something new called the Partial Die Cut card.  I’m really liking this and can’t wait to try it again with different dies.  Here’s my card for today.

I played along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #284.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Bumblebee cardstock to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal.  On the Bumblebee card base I stamped the large sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I placed the matted panel over part of the sunflower and lined up the die from the Sunflower Dies.  I tacked it on the panel, so it wouldn’t move, using washi tape.  I cut the 1/2 of sunflower out of the panel, then embossed the panel using my Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder.

I adhered a strip of the Flowers For Every Season Designer Series paper to the left side of the card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I cut the sentiment into a banner using the Triple Banner Punch.  I cut a strip of Just Jade cardstock into a banner using the Triple Banner Punch and adhered the sentiment to it using Stampin’ Seal.  I cut the banner down to 3 1/2″.

I adhered the matted embossed panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, making sure the sunflower lined up with the die cut.  I adhered the sentiment banner to the top of the panel using Stampin Dimensionals.  I added a few Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of the Flowers For Every Season DSP to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped part of the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Flowers For Every Season 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! Warm and Toasty Cool Yule

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your weekend started off?  I’m working today, but I have off tomorrow.  I’m not sure what we are doing tomorrow, if anything.

I’m on a roll with Christmas cards now.  I need to get 50 done by the beginning of December.  I figured as long as I try to get 3-5 done a week I should be good.  Here’s today’s card.

My design is from Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #468.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, which I made into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch, to the left side using Stampin’ Seal.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the adorable deer image from the Stampin’ Up! Warm & Toasty Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Warm & Toasty stamp set above the deer in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the top of a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Delightful Tag Topper Punch and embossed the panel using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder.  I adhered the artwork to the tag using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I added a piece of the Gold Metallic Trim, form the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack, to the top of the tag and frayed it.  I adhered the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP to the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the deer image from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Plaid Tidings 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!!

With Paper Pumpkin, you are provided with everything you need to explore your creativity and discover new ways to craft. As we navigate a “new normal” in today’s world, there’s plenty of opportunity to papercraft! And, more importantly, there’s no better time than now to create something that’ll show the essential people in your life just how awesome you think they are.

Lately, it’s become especially clear who the everyday heroes are—they’ve always surrounded us! Teachers, doctors, hairdressers, nurses, delivery workers, cashiers, and even our friends, kids, and family members go above and beyond to enrich our lives. These people are truly the world’s greatest at what they do!

Celebrate and appreciate the everyday heroes in your life with the August Paper Pumpkin Kit. The cards included in this kit are specifically designed for celebrating life’s champions!

  • The intended use of this kit is to celebrate and appreciate life’s champions and everyday heroes.
  • Especially during this time, this is something anyone can do to make a difference. The August kit makes it easy!
  • Distinktive stamps are photo-realistic stamps that create an impressive detailed image with a single stamp.
  • The Distinktive stamps included in August’s kit are an especially excellent feature for new stampers still exploring their creativity!
  • Masculine card designs can be difficult to find, this kit has a real masculine feel.

I’m cleaning my shelves and drawers out to make room for lots of new goodie.  I have my list right HERE and I’m trying to keep it up to date.   Check it out and let me know if there is anything you’d like to get.  If you are looking for something and don’t see it on the list, drop me a line and I will look through my stash to see if I missed it.  I have lots of older DSP too that I don’t have listed if there is any that you are looking for.
