Stampin’ Up! Celebrating with Patterns 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 Bloom & Grow Stamp Set and the Playing With Patterns Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here are the colors we are using:

I’m also playing along with the Sunday Stamps SSC236

I turned the sketch and made my card in a horizontal orientation instead of vertical, fun!

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Playing With Patterns Designer Series Paper to the front of a Night of Navy card base.  Adhere the additional two panels of the DSP to the corresponding Night of Navy card stock mats.  The striped layer is adhered to the card base with Liquid Glue first, centered top to bottom and left to right.  Next adhere the layer with the dots to the card base, centered top to bottom and aligned on each end.

Use Night of Navy ink to stamp the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow Stamp Set in the bottom right area of a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere the stamped panel to the Night of Navy card stock mat with Liquid Glue.  Wrap two lengths of the Purple Posy ombre ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack around the layer and adhere the ends on the back with tape.  Tie a bow with the ribbon and adhere with Mini Glue Dots.  Adhere the sentiment panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Embellish with a few Playing With Patterns Resin Dots.

Add a strip of the Playing with Patterns DSP along the bottom edge of a panel of Whisper White card stock before adhering the panel to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  This card is pretty easy and goes together quickly, but looks more complicated than it is.  Have fun playing with different combinations of Designer Series Paper to achieve many different looks!

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Sympathy 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 Prized Peony Stamp Set, the Peony Dies and the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here is the sketch we are using:

I turned the sketch to make my card in a vertical orientation instead of horizontal.

Use the scalloped border die from the Peony Dies set to trim a strip of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere the scalloped strip along one edge of a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then use Liquid Glue to adhere the DSP panel to the front of a Petal Pink card base.

The large bloom from the Prized Peony Stamp Set is stamped with Gray Granite ink on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Color the flower with Petal Pink Light and Petal Pink Dark Stampin’ Blends markers.  The stems and leaves are colored with Granny Apple Green Light and Granny Apple Green Dark Stampin’ Blends markers.  Then crop the image with the coordinating die from the Peony Dies set.  Adhere the art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Prized Peony Stamp Set with Gray Granite Ink on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Use the Label Me Fancy Punch to cut it out.  Cut a length of Gray Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon.  Secure the ribbon in place with Mini Glue Dots.  Then adhere the sentiment label over the ribbon with Dimensionals.  Embellish with a few Elegant Faceted Gems in Petal Pink.

Using stamps from the Prized Peony Stamp Set, first stamp the small floral image on a Whisper White panel card stock using Petal Pink ink that is stamped off twice.  Then stamp the sentiment over the bloom with Gray Granite ink.  Adhere a strip of Peony Garden DSP along the bottom edge of the panel with Liquid Glue.  Then Glue the panel to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Jar Punch with Branches 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 new Jar Punch, the Birds & More Dies, the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, and one of the Greenery Embossing Folders.  I also used the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set, the Ornate Frames Dies and the Sprig Punch.

The woodgrain patterned paper from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper is the perfect background to give this card a natural look.

The Greenery embossing folder adds a little texture to the jar – looks a bit like milkglass.

The gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and the Gold Brushed Metallic card stock (available in the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog) add shine, but not too much.

The inside is blank – ready to add a personal note – with strips of woodgrain paper across the top and bottom edges.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a panel of Mossy Meadow card stock to 4-1/4″ x 11″, score at 5-1/2″ and fold for the card base.
  2. Cut a 3-3/4″ x 5″ panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and adhere it to a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel of Whisper White card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  3. Use Liquid Glue to adhere the layer to the front of the Mossy Meadow card base.
  4. Use the Greenery Embossing Folder and die cutting machine to add texture to a 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ panel of Whisper White card stock.
  5. Use the Jar Punch to crop the jar shape from the embossed panel.
  6. Use the Jar Punch to crop a second jar from a plain piece of Whisper White card stock and adhere it to the back of the embossed piece with Liquid Glue.  (This will help it maintain it’s shape when added to the card front.)
  7. Wrap a length of 1/16″ Gold Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack around the top of the jar three times and secure the ends on the back with tape.
  8. Tie a small triple loop bow with the Gold Trim and adhere to the jar front with a Mini Glue Dot.
  9. Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the jar, avoiding about 1/2″ from the top to allow space to tuck the branches under the jar.  Wait to peel the backing.
  10. Use the large branch die from the Birds & More Dies to cut a branch in three colors: Mossy Meadow card stock, Pear Pizzazz card stock and Gold Brushed Metallic card stock.
  11. Use the Sprig Punch to cut a branch from Gold Brushed Metallic card stock.
  12. Use Paper Snips to clip the branches and sprig into pieces.
  13. Lay the branches, sprigs and jar on the card front to determine placement of all the elements.
  14. Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere the branches and sprigs and then adhere the jar with the Dimensionals.
  15. Use White Stampin’ Emboss Powder with VersaMark ink and your Heat Tool to add the sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set to a panel of Mossy Meadow card stock.
  16. Crop the sentiment with a die from the Ornate Frames Die Set and adhere to the card front with Liquid Glue.
  17. Use Liquid Glue to adhere two 1/2″ x 3-3/4″ strips of In Good Taste DSP to a 3-3/4″ x 5″ panel of Whisper White card stock.
  18. Adhere the completed panel to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Whale of a Time Turtles 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 Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper and the Queen Anne’s Lace Stamp Set.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here are the colors we are using:

The Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper has 4 each of 12 double-sided designs of 6″x 6″ paper.  That’s 24 different designs in one pack – so many options to choose from equals so much fun!  I chose to fussy-cut some turtles from one design and add them to the underwater scene from another design.

Choose a scene from the Designer Series Paper collection and trim to size before adhering it to a panel of Just Jade card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut a couple sea turtles and adhere them to the scene with Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the completed layer to the front of a Pacific Point card base with Glue.

Use Pacific Point ink to stamp the sentiment from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Crop with the banner die from the Tasteful Labels Dies set.  Adhere the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use some Liquid Glue to adhere a few clear gems from the Flowers For Every Season Gems to the card front – they look like bubbles!

For the inside of the card, stamp the sentiment from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set with Pacific Point ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of the Designer Series Paper along the left edge as well as another fussy-cut turtle image to the panel.  Then adhere the panel to a mat of Just Jade card stock before adding it to the inside of the card with Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  This month our theme is “Celebrate Summer”.  My project today features the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set, the Four Season Floral Stamp Set, the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper and the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  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.

One of my favorite things about summer is having time to work in my flower garden and enjoying the blooms.  So today I am Celebrating Summer with a pretty bouquet from the Jar of Flowers stamp set.

To begin, cut a panel of Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper using the largest die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the DSP to the front of a Whisper White Thick card base.  Then stamp the sunflower bouquet image from the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Mask the lower part of the bouquet and stamp the stems image.

Color the flowers and stems as shown using Stampin’ Blends.  You can see all the marker colors at the end of this post in the list of products used.  Use the third to largest die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies to crop the panel.  Wrap a length of 1/4″ Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon around the art piece, securing the ends on the back side with tape.  Adhere the art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Four Season Floral Stamp set with Memento Black ink on a scrap of Whisper White Thick card stock and crop using the Classic Label Punch.  Trim off one end with Paper Snips before adhering to the card front with Dimensionals.  Add a bow adhered with Mini Glue Dots to complete.

Cut a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock using the largest die in the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  Stamp the flower image from the Four Season Floral Stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and color with Stampin’ Blends.  Adhere it to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  Done!

Here’s a picture of some Black-Eyed Susan’s growing in my garden.  Not sure where that name came from.  They’re also known as Rudbeckia.  I grow them for the butterflies and bees, and love that they are perennials and come back every year.

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.
