Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Posies Celebration for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog  to see the great projects they are sharing with you this week.  My project today features the new Gorgeous Posies Stamp Set, the Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper, and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here is the sketch we are using:Flowers always brighten my day and the Flowers For All Seasons Designer Series Paper has so many options to choose from!  I picked these daisies to make a card to celebrate a friends’ special day.

To begin, adhere a panel of the Designer Series Paper to a panel of Just Jade card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Glue to adhere the layer to the front of a Daffodil Delight card base.

Use Just Jade ink to stamp the sentiment from the Gorgeous Posies stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Crop the sentiment panel with a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  Cut a length of Just Jade In Color 1/4″ Ribbon and create a couple loops in it, adhering to the back of the sentiment label with Mini Glue Dots.

Adhere the sentiment label to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use small dabs of Liquid Glue to adhere a few Flowers for Every Season Gems to the label for a bit of sparkle and shine.

Fussy-cut an image from the Flowers For All Seasons DSP and adhere it in the bottom right corner of a panel of Whisper White card stock with Liquid Glue.  Adhere the panel to a mat of Just Jade card stock and then adhere the completed layer to the inside of the card with Glue.  Do you have someone in mind that would love receiving this card?

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Get Well for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog  to see the great projects they are sharing with you this week.  My project today features the new Many Mates Stamp Set, the Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper, and the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my project:

And we are each using at least three of these colors:

Just Jade, Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider are the colors I chose to use on my card today.  Okay, I admit there’s not much Cinnamon Cider, but it IS there.  Did you notice that all of the colors above are the new 2020-2022 In-Colors?  Such a nice collection, right?

Cut the panel of Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper into strips that are one inch wide and adhere them to a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  For best results with spacing, adhere the strips on each side first, then adhere the one in the middle.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the completed piece to a mat of Just Jade card stock.

Wrap a length of the Misty Moonlight/Silver/White Twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the layer three times and secure the ends on the back side with tape.  Then adhere the completed piece to the front of the Whisper White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment from the Many Mates Stamp Set is heat embossed with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock.  Crop it with a die from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  Cut another label the next size up from Whisper White Thick card stock and adhere them together with Liquid Glue.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the label to the card front.  Embellish with a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels and a triple loop bow adhered with a Mini Glue Dot.

Use Misty Moonlight ink to stamp the inside sentiment from the Many Mates Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a thin strip of the Flowers for Every Season DSP along the edge of the panel before adhering it to a mat of Just Jade.  Adhere the completed layer to the inside of the card base and you’re all set!

Stampin’ Up! Whale Done My Love for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog  to see the great projects they are sharing with you this week.  My project today features the new Whale Done Stamp Set, the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper, the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch and the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here is the sketch we are using:

The Whale of a Time Suite is one of my favorites in the 2020-21 Annual Catalog.  The Designer Series Paper has bright colors and beautifully illustrated underwater scenes of aquatic life.  Plus, with twelve 2-sided designs, there are so many to choose from!  Decisions, decisions, right?!?

Adhere a panel of the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper to cover the front of the Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Glue to adhere another panel of the Designer Series Paper to a mat of Balmy Blue card stock and adhere the layer to the card front, as well.

Use the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch to cut three panels of the turtles scene from the Designer Series Paper for the art piece.  I punched three more panels from Whisper White Thick card stock and adhered them to the backs of the turtle panels to add weight before adhering them to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Pretty Peacock ink to stamp the sentiment from the Whale Done Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Crop the sentiment with a die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  Adhere the sentiment across the front panels with Liquid Glue.  Embellish with some sequins from the Whale of a Time Sequins pack.  There are even some shaped like sea shells!

Punch one more rectangle of the turtles swimming with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.  Then insert the piece back into the punch, viewing on the back side and punch again to trim to one square and a smaller rectangle.  Adhere them to a panel of Whisper White card stock with Liquid Glue.  Ink the turtle from the Whale Done stamp set on a Balmy Blue ink pad, then add some Pretty Peacock ink to the stamp with a Sponge Dauber before stamping on the White panel.  Add a heart – from the same stamp set – inked with Calypso Coral ink.  Adhere the panel to the inside of the card with some Glue and you’re all set.

Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Birthday Wishes for Simply Stampin’ Sunday

Welcome to Simply Stampin’ Sunday – my post of Clean And Simple projects that can be made in minutes using Stampin’ Up! products.  This week’s card features the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set, Tasteful Labels Dies, Well Written Dies, Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper and the Best Year Stamp Set.  And I admit, it took more than a few minutes, but I think it was time well spent.

A layer of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper matted on a panel of the new Brass Foil paper is a sweet background for the sentiment label and hand colored flowers from the Tasteful Touches Stamps & Dies Bundle.

My card design is based on Freshly Made Sketches FMS440

The flowers are colored with  Stampin’ Blends markers.  The centers are then highlighted with Clear Wink of Stella for a little added sparkle and shine.  Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut the flower images.

The sentiment on the card front is cut from a Brass Foil sheet using the Well Written Dies.

The sentiment inside the card is from the Best Year Stamp Set, stamped with Pretty Peacock ink.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a panel of Pretty Peacock card stock to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score at 4-1/4″ and fold for the card base.
  2. Cut a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.
  3. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the DSP to a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of Brass Foil.
  4. Use Liquid Glue to adhere the layer to the card front.
  5. Stamp the flower image from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set 3 times on a panel of Thick Whisper White card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  6. Color the petals of the flowers using Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends markers.
  7. Color the flower centers with a Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends marker.  Brush some sparkle on the flower centers with Clear Wink of Stella.
  8. Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut the flowers.
  9. Cut the sentiment label from a panel of Pretty Peacock card stock using a die from the Tasteful Labels Dies.
  10. Cut the sentiment from a Brass Foil Sheet using dies from the Well Written Dies Set.
  11. Adhere the sentiment to the label using small dabs of Liquid Glue.
  12. Use Liquid Glue to adhere a flower in the top left corner of the card front.
  13. The Sentiment label is then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  14. The flower in the bottom right is adhered to the card front with Dimensionals and a Mini Glue Dot where it overlaps the sentiment.
  15. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a 3/4″ x 3-7/8″ strip of Forever Greenery DSP to the left side of a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel of Whisper White card stock for the inside panel.
  16. Use Pretty Peacock ink to stamp the sentiment from the Best Year Stamp Set on the Whisper White panel
  17. Liquid Glue is used to adhere the flower to the inside panel before adhering the panel to the inside of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Friend Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog  to see the great projects they are sharing with you this week.  My project today features the new Forever Fern Stamp Set, Forever Flourishing Dies and the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  All of these are now available for ordering!  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here are the colors we are all using:The Forever Greenery Suite is one of my favorites from the 2020-21 Annual Catalog.  The Stamps, Dies, Designer Series Paper, Ribbon and Twine Combo Pack, Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, Embossing Folders and Gold Hoop Embellishments are all must-haves on my list.  Be sure you check them out – they’ll probably be on your list, too!

Adhere a panel of Forever Greenery DSP to the front of the Pretty Peacock card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Pretty Peacock ink to stamp the sentiment from the Forever Fern Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Stamp the speckles with Pretty Peacock ink repeatedly on the art piece before reinking to add some texture in the background.  Adhere the stamped panel to a mat of Pretty Peacock card stock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Cut a length of 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and tie a knot in it before wrapping it around the art piece – with the Pretty Peacock side showing – and adhere the ends on the back side of the layer with tape.  Ink the leaf image by tapping the stamp on a Pear Pizzazz ink pad, add some Just Jade ink with a sponge dauber and a few speckles with Pretty Peacock ink.  Use your breath to moisten the ink and stamp on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Then cut it out with the coordinating die from the Forever Flourishing Dies.

Repeat to make three branches of leaves.  Adhere one branch with Mini Glue Dots, another with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the last one with a combination of Glue Dots and Dimensionals.  Adhere the completed art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Gold Glitter Enamel Dots embellishments are the perfect finishing touch.

Stamp a few Pretty Peacock speckles on a panel of Whisper White card stock for the inside of the card.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a strip Forever Greenery DSP to the left edge of the panel before adhering it to the inside of the card.

And here are the colors we are all using:This card is inspired by one made by Cindy Elam.  Use the large detailed petal die from the Sunflowers Dies set to cut an opening in a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use Old Olive ink to stamp the larger leaf from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set numerous times around the edge flower opening.  Then use the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder to add texture to the panel.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the Whisper White panel to a panel of Bumble Bee DSP from the 2020-22 6″x 6″ Designer Series Paper Assortment Stack.  Use the large detailed petal die from the Sunflowers Dies to cut a flower from Early Espresso card stock.  Use Glue to adhere the die cut sunflower to the DSP through the opening in the Whisper White panel.  Then adhere the completed art piece to the front of an Old Olive card base with Liquid Glue.

Stamp the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set with Early Espresso ink on a strip of Whisper White card stock.  Trim one end of the strip with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. Adhere the label to another one cut from Old Olive card stock.  The sentiment label is adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use the Sunflowers Dies to cut a few leaves from Old Olive card stock.  Adhere them to one end of the label.  Tie a bow using the Gold Metallic Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and adhere to the label with a Glue Dot.  Embellish the flower center, label and card front with Gilded Gems.

Use Old Olive ink to stamp a few leaves on a panel of Whisper White card stock before adhering it to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Healing Hugs for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog  to see the great projects they are sharing with you this week.  My project today features the Healing Hugs Stamp Set.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here are the colors we are all using:

I love the Healing Hugs Stamp Set – it’s a DISTINKTIVE style stamp, exclusive to Stampin’ Up!  It has a lot of dimension and texture when stamped.  Unfortunately, it isn’t easily captured in photographs, but fortunately, really cool to see in person.  Ink the flower image with sponge daubers using So Saffron and Mango Melody inks, then stamp it on a square panel of Whisper White card stock.  Without re-inking, stamp again in the center of the Whisper White panel for the inside of the card.

Stamp the image again on a sticky note and cut it out to mask (cover) the flower image and then stamp the leaf image three times with Old Olive ink.  There’s an illustrated explanation how to do this technique on page 72 of the new 2020-21 Annual Catalog.  Check it out!  Then use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the art piece to a panel of Old Olive card stock.  Die cut a butterfly from Mango Melody card stock using the Butterfly Beauty Dies and adhere near the flower with Liquid Glue.

Stamp the sentiment from the Healing Hugs Stamp Set with Old Olive ink in the lower right hand corner of a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Then adhere the panel to a mat of Mango Melody card stock with Liquid Glue.  Use Glue to adhere the completed layer to the front of an Old Olive card base.  Then adhere the art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Embellish with a few Holiday Rhinestones – the Pumpkin Pie colored ones work just fine.

Stamp the sentiment from the Healing Hugs Stamp Set on the panel for the inside of the card using Old Olive ink.  Adhere the stamped panel to the Mango Melody card stock mat and then to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  Send it on it’s way to brighten someone’s day and let them know you’re thinking about them.

Stampin’ Up! Parcels & Petals Birthday Card for Simply Stampin’ Sunday

Welcome to Simply Stampin’ Sunday – my post of Clean And Simple projects that can be made in minutes using Stampin’ Up! products.  This week’s card features the Parcels and Petals Bundle and Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.

The Parcels & Petals Stamp Set and Perfect Parcel Dies are carrying over into the new 2020-21 Annual Catalog, but they will not be offered as a bundle with 10% off.  The Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper is retiring, but is still available for ordering at this time.  This DSP is lightweight and has 24 sheets of 12×12 paper and includes 4 each of 6 double-sided designs.

I used one of the images designed as a card front, so it just needed to be cut to size.  Love the textured background behind the photographic image of real pressed flowers.

Add a strip of card stock across the front to set off the lace trim.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the sentiment, add a bow and some Rhinestones and done!

Snip out a small floral image to adhere to the card liner to carry the theme to the inside of the card, as well.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a panel of Night of Navy card stock to 4-1/4″ x 11″, score at 5-1/2″ and fold for the card base.
  2. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to the front of the card.
  3. Cut a 1/2″ x 4-1/4″ strip of Night of Navy card stock and adhere it across the front of the card with the bottom edge of the strip 1-3/4″ up from the bottom of the card base.
  4. Cut an 8-1/2″ length of Very Vanilla 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Trim.
  5. Wrap the Lace Trim around the card front with the ends meeting on the front side where they will be covered by the sentiment.
  6. Use Glue Dots to secure the ends to the card front.
  7. Use Night of Navy ink to stamp the sentiment from the Parcels & Petals stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.
  8. Use a die from the Perfect Parcels Dies to cut out the sentiment.
  9. Adhere the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  10. Tie a bow with the Lace Trim and adhere to the card front with glue dots.
  11. Embellish the sentiment label with a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
  12. Trim a flower image from the Pressed Petals DSP and adhere to the bottom right corner of a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of Very Vanilla card stock.
  13. Adhere the completed panel to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.
