Stampin’ Up! Seasons of Fun in Fall 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 Seasons of Fun Stamp Set, the Tasteful Labels Dies and the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

Our theme this week is Leaves:

The Season of Fun Stamp Set has the cutest images of children celebrating Fall, Halloween and Christmas that beg to be colored.  And I love to color.  Win, win.

Stamp the image from the Seasons of Fun stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Here are the Stampin’ Blends colors I chose to use – but you can easily change them and make it your own.  Sweater – Light Pumpkin Pie and Light Old Olive,  hat – Light Cinnamon Cider and Dark Cinnamon Cider, pants – Light Cinnamon Cider, shoes – Dark Cinnamon Cider and Dark Crumb Cake, skin – Ivory.

To color the leaves use Dark Daffodil Delight, Dark Cinnamon Cider, Light Old Olive, Dark Calypso Coral and Dark Cherry Cobbler, matching the leaves in the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper.  Crop the image with a die from the Tasteful Labels Dies.  Turn the label over and use a pencil to trace around the outside edge on a panel of Early Espresso card stock.  Use paper snips to cut on the traced line, creating a mat. Adhere the colored image to the mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Beauty of the Earth DSP to the front of an Early Espresso card base,  Adhere a strip of Cajun Craze card stock across the front of the card with Liquid Glue.  Use Early Espresso ink to stamp the sentiment from the Banner Year stamp set on a strip of Pale Papaya card stock.  Crop the sentiment with a die from the Potted Succulents Dies.  Adhere the art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Adhere the sentiment to the card front with Glue.

Add a strip of Beauty of the Earth DSP to a panel of Basic White card stock before adhering it to the inside of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings Christmas Card for World Cardmaking Day

Welcome to a special post today.  Our Inkin’ Krew team, led by Amy Koenders – Stamp With Amy K, held a special World Cardmaking Day 2021 event yesterday. Nine separate demonstrators presented LIVE on FaceBook every hour on the hour from 8AM to 5PM ET.  Here is the card I presented.  It features the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set and the Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper.

This fun fold is called a Joy Fold.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere all the panels of DSP and card stock.  The largest panel (diagonal stripe) of the Sweet Stockings DSP is adhered to the inside/front of the card base.  The medium sized piece (string of lights) is adhered to the front of the smaller card.  The horizontal patterned piece is adhered to the lower front flap.

Use a die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies to crop the image of the cat with antlers from the Sweet Stockings DSP.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere it to a panel of Mossy Meadow card stock.

Add some Gold Trim from the Simply Elegant Trim combo pack to the front of the small card – adhering with Mini Glue Dots in the area that will be covered by the panel with the kitty.  Adhere the kitty piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Tie a little bow with the Gold Trim.  Adhere it under the kitty’s chin with a rolled up Mini Glue Dot.

Use Cherry Cobbler ink to stamp the sentiment from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set on the panel of Basic White card stock.  Use Mossy Meadow ink to stamp a couple small evergreen branches from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set in the lower right corner.  Then adhere a strip of the Sweet Stockings DSP to the upper edge of the inside panel before adhering it to the inside of the small card.  The small card is adhered to the card base with Liquid Glue – centered top to bottom and left to right.

To watch a video I made for our team World Cardmaking Day presentation showing how to make this card, click on this link: https://www.facebook.com/StampWithSuePrather/videos/626218025039896

Be forewarned that my internet was acting up, so there are some definite quality issues with the recording.  Between the video and this post, I’ve shared all the information and I hope you’ll give this card a try – it’s really very easy.

Stampin’ Up! Painted Christmas to Remember 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 Christmas to Remember Stamp Set, the Seasonal Labels Dies and the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

And here is the sketch we are using:

The Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper features images of hand-painted foliage with a natural look in traditional holiday colors.  I’ve showcased a couple of the patterns in today’s card, as this is the Christmas look I remember.

Begin by adhering a panel of the Designer Series Paper to a Basic White card stock mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  This layer is then adhered to the Evening Evergreen card front with Liquid Glue.

Crop a panel of the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper with the fourth to largest die in the Stitched Rectangles Dies set.  Adhere to a panel of Evening Evergreen card stock with Liquid Glue.  The layer is then adhered centered on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Evening Evergreen ink to stamp a sentiment from the Christmas to Remember Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Then crop with a die from the Seasonal Labels Dies.

Adhere a length of Cherry Cobbler and Gold 1/2″ Metallic Ribbon folded in half to the front of the card with Mini Glue Dots.  Adhere the sentiment label over the top of the ribbon loop with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Embellish with a few Gilded Gems to complete.

A strip of Painted Christmas DSP is adhered along the bottom edge of a panel of Basic White card stock.  Add the sentiment from the Christmas to Remember Stamp Set to the panel with Evening Evergreen ink.  Then adhere to the inside of the card base with Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Blackberry Beauty Fun Fold 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 Elegantly Said Stamp Set, the Beauty of Tomorrow Stamp Set, the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack and the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Color Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

And here are the colors we are using – pick at least 3:

I used the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper for today’s card.  It has botanical prints – some with birds – and the deep, rich colors listed above with gold foil accents.  My card has four of the five colors listed, no Early Espresso.  I also used the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack for the gold foil floral precut image on the card front.

This fun fold is called a Joy Fold.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere all the panels of DSP and card stock.  The largest panel of the Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP is adhered to the inside/front of the card base.  The medium sized piece is adhered to the inside upper section of the smaller card.  The smallest piece is adhered to the front flap.

The front of the smaller card is a panel of Blackberry Bliss card stock matted on a Gold Foil sheet.  Adhere a precut gold foil floral image from the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack with small dabs of Liquid Glue and embellish with a Bumblebee Trinket.

Use Blackberry Bliss ink to stamp the sentiment from the Elegantly Said stamp set on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Stamp the bird from the Beauty of Tomorrow Stamp set in the lower right corner.  Then adhere the stamped panel to a Gold Foil mat before adhering to the inside of the small card.

The small card is adhered to the card base with Liquid Glue – centered top to bottom and left to right.  It’s really a very easy fold.  Give it a try!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season 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 Christmas Season Stamp Set, the Christmas to Remember Stamp Set, the Seasonal Labels Dies and the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

And here is the Sketch we are using:

The Crumb Cake background in this particular pattern from the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper inspired me to use Crumb Cake when creating the card I’m sharing with you today.  And I’m glad I did!  I like this combination and hope you do too.

Stamp the single evergreen branch three times on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock with Evening Evergreen ink.  Use Soft Succulent ink to stamp the small branch two times and Real Red to stamp the berries two times.  Crop the stamped images with the corresponding dies from the Seasonal Labels Dies set.

Cut a panel of Evening Evergreen card stock with the second to largest label die from the Seasonal Labels Dies set.  Arrange the branches and berries on the label, adhering with Mini Glue Dots.  Trim the fourth berry off with Paper Snips and add it separately.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper to an Evening Evergreen card stock mat.  Then use Liquid Glue to adhere the art piece label to the completed panel.

Use Evening Evergreen ink to stamp the sentiment from the Christmas to Remember Stamp Set on a strip of Very Vanilla Thick card stock.  Crop the sentiment with the coordinationg label die from the Seasonal Labels Dies.  Adhere the sentiment to the front panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Add a bow tied with Crumb Cake twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack using a Mini Glue Dot.

Use Evening Evergreen ink to stamp the sentiment from the Christmas to Remember Stamp Set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Adhere to a panel of Evening Evergreen card stock.  The layer is then adhered to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.  Add a die cut branch stamped with Evening Evergreen ink on Crumb Cake and some Real Red berries.  The “extra” berry is trimmed off and added to the sentiment strip.  Add some Clear Wink of Stella to ALL the berries to add some sparkle.

Stampin’ Up! Festive & Bright Halloween for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is “Halloween Fun”.  My project today features the Festive & Bright Stamp Set, Festive Finishes Dies and Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper.  We have a great group of participants in our hop this month.  Please take time to stop by to visit each blog to see what the Inkin’ Krew Team members are sharing with you today.

Use Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the witch hats image from the Festive & Bright Stamp Set on a strip of Basic White Thick card stock.  Color the hats with Blends Markers.  I used Daffodil Delight Dark for the broom straw and Cinnamon Cider Light for the broom handles. The “black” hat is Dark Smoky Slate and Light Basic Black.  The other hats are Highland Heather Light & Dark, Old Olive Light & Dark, and Pumpkin Pie Light & Dark.

Use the coordinating die from the Festive Finishes Dies to crop the right side of the strip – 1a – is the number.  Then trim the strip to approx 1-1/4″ wide.  Adhere a panel of Cute Halloween DSP to a Pumpkin Pie card stock mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Adhere the colored strip along the right side with approx 3/4″ overlap and 1/2″ overhang.  Align the top of the broom with the top edge of the layer and trim the excess off the top and bottom of the strip.  Wrap a length of Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon around the panel to cover the “seam” and adhere the ends on the back with tape.

Adhere the art piece to the card front with Liquid Glue.  It is centered top to bottom and approx 3/8″ in from the fold.  Use Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the sentiment from the Festive & Bright Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White Thick card stock.  Crop the sentiment with a label die from the Festive Finishes Dies.  Tie a bow with the Black & White Gingham Ribbon and use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere it to the right end of the sentiment label.  Adhere the sentiment label to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Embellish with a large Matte Black Dot on the left side of the label.

Use Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the spider on the top right of the Basic White card stock inside panel.  Adhere a strip of DSP along the left side with Liquid Glue.  Adhere to a Pumpkin Pie card stock mat before adhering to the inside of the card with Glue.  This panel is also approx 3/8″ from the fold.  Dry fit first to be sure it doesn’t show when the card is closed.  Cut a few ghosts with a die from the Festive Finishes Dies and adhere them with Mini Glue Dots to the inside of the card to the left of the fold for some added fun.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Autumn 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 Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set, the Beautiful Trees Dies, the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

And our Theme is Autumn/Harvest:

The Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper has a number of patterns that remind me of Autumn.  The one I chose reminds me of a foggy morning in the Fall, when the woods look kind of dreamy.  Some of the colors are rich and some are muted.

Adhere a panel of the DSP to a panel of Early Espresso card stock.  Use the Beautiful Trees Dies to cut a large tree from Early Espresso card stock.  Adhere the tree to the front layer about a 1/4″ up from the bottom with small dabs of Multipupose Liquid Glue.

Use a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to crop a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock.  Turn the die upside down on a panel of Early Espresso card stock and trace around it lightly with a pencil.  Use Paper Snips to cut it out.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the Misty Moonlight label to the Early Espresso mat.  Adhere the layered label to the front panel about 3/4″ up from the bottom with Mini Glue Dots.

Wrap a length of Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim across the front panel and adhere the ends on the back with tape.  Use Misty Moonlight ink to stamp the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Crop with a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set.  Adhere the sentiment label over the wrapped trim with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Tie a length of Suede Trim around the wrapped piece to create a faux bow and trim the ends.  Cut a bird from Merry Merlot card stock with a die from the Beautiful Trees Dies set.  Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere it to the edge of the layered label.  Add a few copper colored Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots.  Adhere the completed front layer to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Liquid Glue to adhere two strips of Beauty of the Earth DSP to a panel of Basic White card stock.  Stamp the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set with Misty Moonlight ink in the bottom right corner.  Add a die cut bird to the bottom left.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the inside panel to an Early Espresso card stock mat before adhering the layer to the inside of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Blackberry Beauty Thinking of You 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 Art Gallery Stamp Set, the Floral Gallery Dies and the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

And here is the Sketch we’re using:The colors in the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper are deep and rich – very much like fall.  The Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack has amazing coordinating tags, labels, flowers, branches, frames and birds, too!  Simply punch them out and you’re ready to go.  Add some Gilded Gems and gold trim to complete your creation.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP to the front of a Blackberry Bliss card base.  Cut two lengths of Gold Trim and add them to a tag from the Ephemera Pack.  Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere an owl from the Ephemera Pack to the label, then adhere the label to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the Art Gallery Stamp Set – heat embossed in Gold on a strip of Blackberry Bliss card stock.  Crop it with a label die from the Floral Gallery Dies.  Adhere the sentiment label to the card front with Mini Glue Dots.  Embellish the tag with some Gilded Gems – so sparkly!

The inside is simple.  I left it blank to add a handwritten note.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP along the bottom of a panel of Basic White card stock.  Then adhere the panel to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Meadow 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 Nature’s Harvest Stamp Set, the Harvest Dies and the Tailor Made Tags Dies.  I also used the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Color Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

And here are the Colors we’re using (pick at least 3) :

I chose three of the colors for today’s card – Soft Succulent, Misty Moonlight and Crumb Cake.  It’s an easy card to make, thanks to the Tailor Made Tags Dies and Harvest Dies.  Use Basic White Thick card stock for the card base and the tag which is cut with the largest tag die.  Add texture to the tag with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder.

Use the same tag die to cut a panel of Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper.  Cut the reinforcement for the white tag from Crumb Cake card stock – also with a die from the Tailor Made Tags Die Set.  Use a die from the Harvest Dies to cut the blooming grasses from a panel of Soft Succulent card stock.  Add color to the flowers using a sponge dauber inked with a Misty Moonight ink pad.

Adhere the grasses to the white tag with small dabs of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Paper Snips to trim the ends of the grasses even with the bottom of the tag.  Adhere the reinforcement to the tag with Liquid Glue, as well.  Layer the white tag over the DSP tag, align the holes at the top and adhere together with Liquid Glue.  Thread a length of Soft Succulent 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon through the hole at the top of the tags.  Secure the ribbon in place with some Linen Thread, knotted and tied in a bow.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to the front of the Basic White Thick card base.  Then adhere the tags to the front of the card with Mini Glue Dots.  Stamp the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight ink on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock.  Crop the sentiment with a label die included in the Harvest Dies.  Adhere the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Embellish with a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots in the bronze color.

Stamp the small floral image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set with Soft Succulent ink – stamped off once – on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Adhere a strip of DSP along the bottome of the panel with Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the panel to the inside of the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Now it’s ready for your handwritten note.
