Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug Birthday 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 Hello Ladybug Stamp Set, Ladybug Builder Punch and the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper.  It also uses the Pansy Patch Stamp Set and Tailor Made Tag Dies.  We are working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And here is the Sketch we are using:This simple sketch leaves a lot of room for creativity.  The Hello Ladybug Stamp Set and coordinating Ladybug Builder Punch – (also available as the Hello Ladybug Bundle at 10% off) – has been calling to me.  It made it so easy to add color and fun to the card front.

Start by adhering a panel of the black and white check pattern from the Pattern Party DSP to a panel of Real Red card stock.  Then adhere the layer to the front of the Basic Black card base, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for both.

Stamp the Ladybug body on Basic White Thick card stock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Use Real Red ink to stamp the wings on Basic White card stock and more Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the spots on the wings.  Use the Ladybug Builder Punch to crop the bodies and wings.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the wings to the bodies.  Make four ladybugs – three for the front and one for the inside.

Use Granny Apple Green ink to stamp the leaf on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Trim around the leaf with Paper Snips.  Stamp the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set with Black ink on a panel of Real Red card stock.  Crop with a die from the Tailor Made Tags Dies.

Adhere the leaf and sentiment to the card front with Liquid Glue.    Adhere the ladybugs with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Complete with a triple loop bow tied with the black & white trim from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack adhered with a Mini Glue Dot.

Use Black ink to stamp the inside sentiment from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in the center of the Basic White panel.  Adhere the panel to a Real Red mat before adhering to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  Adhere a ladybug to the bottom right corner with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Flowing Flowers 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 Flowing Flowers Stamp Set and the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper now available for ordering from the January–June 2022 Mini Catalog.  We are working with a Color Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

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

Today’s card features four of the five colors in the challenge.  The Flowing Flowers Stamp Set has DISTINKTIVE style images designed to produce images with shading and dimension.  Add ink to the large bloom with a Petal Pink Stampin’ Write marker.  Use sponge daubers to add color to the Highland Heather splats, Granny Apple Green leaves and some Real Red in the center of the bloom.

Use a scalloped rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies to crop the image.  Adhere it to a panel of Granny Apple Green card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper to the front of a Basic White Thick card base.  Then adhere the art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, about 1/2″ down from the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Wrap a length of Highland Heather 1/2″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the front of the card base approx 3/4″ up from the bottom and secure the ends with Mini Glue Dots to the card front – where the seam will be covered by the sentiment label.

Stamp the sentiment from the Flowing Flowers Stamp Set with Highland Heather ink on a panel of Basic White Thick card stock.  Crop the sentiment with a label die from the Ornate Frames Dies.  Adhere the sentiment label over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Tie a bow with the ribbon and adhere with Mini Glue Dots.  Add a few Polished Dots to the art piece to complete.

For the inside, use Highland Heather ink to stamp the sentiment from the Flowing Flowers stamp set in the lower right corner of a panel of Basic White card stock.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Talk Valentine 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 Flowering Tulips Stamp Set and the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper now available for ordering from the January–June 2022 Mini Catalog.  We are working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And here is the sketch we are using:

The Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper has plenty of hearts and sweet graphic designs perfect for Valentines Day.  I added a panel to the front of the card base and fussy cut a few images of candies for the inside.

Use the Dotty Hearts embossing folder to add texture to a panel of Basic White card stock.  Use a Blending brush to lightly add some color from a Real Red ink pad to highlight the texture.  Then adhere the panel to a mat cut from Real Red card stock with a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The layer is adhered to the card front with Dimensionals.

The sentiment from the Flowering Tulips stamp set is added to a panel of Real Red card stock with White embossing powder.  Crop the sentiment with a label die from the Potted Succulents dies.  Adhere a length of ribbon from the Playful Pets trim combo to the back of the label with Mini Glue Dots.  Then adhere the sentiment to the card front with Dimensionals.

Fussy cut a few candy images from the Sweet Talk DSP with paper snips, then adhere to the Basic White panel on the inside of the card.  Sweet for sure!

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips Valentine 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 a Sneak Peek of the NEW Flowering Tulips Stamp Set, Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder & Dies and the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper from the upcoming January–June 2022 Mini Catalog.  We are working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

This week our Theme is Fun Fold:

The Fun Fold I am featuring today is called a Book Fold or a Book Binding Fold.  It’s quite simple and yet still makes the card special and fun!  The fold is on the left side and the first inch of the front is adhered to the back, with a second fold to reveal the inside.

The back of the card 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Adhere a 7/8″ wide strip of the Sweet Talk DSP to the 1″ wide area between the folds on the left front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the larger panel of the Sweet Talk DSP to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Cut two lengths of Real Red Double Stitched Satin Ribbon and tie them together with a double knot.  Wrap the ribbon around the 1″ wide area and secure the ends of the ribbon on the inside with tape.  Then use Stampin’ Seal Tape to permanently adhere that section of the front of the card to the back of the card, with the ribbon ends sandwiched in between.

The sentiment from the Flowering Tulips stamp set is embossed on a panel of Real Red card stock and then cropped with a die from the Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder & Dies set.  Adhere it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Liquid Glue to adhere strips of the Sweet Talk DSP along each side of a panel of Basic White card stock before adhering it to the inside of the card.  Use Real Red ink to stamp the three little hearts from the Turtle Friends stamp set in the upper right corner.  Done!

Stampin’ Up! Flowing Flowers Thank 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 a Sneak Peek of the NEW Flowing Flowers Stamp Set, Brushed Brass Butterflies from the upcoming January – June 2022 Mini Catalog and the FREE with $50 purchase Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper from the Jan 4-Feb 28 SALE-a-bration Brochure.  We are working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And this is the Sketch we are using:Use Very Vanilla Thick card stock to make a notecard size card base, or use one from the ready to go Very Vanilla Note Cards and Envelopes pack.  Adhere a panel of the new Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper to the front of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is from the new Flowing Flowers Stamp Set, stamped in Mossy Meadow ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Crop with a plain circle die from the Layering Circles Dies.  Use a scalloped circle die the next size up to cut the Flirty Flamingo mat for the sentiment.

Adhere the sentiment piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Embellish with a large and small butterfly from the new Brushed Brass Butterflies embellishments. The inside is blank, so no need to show that.  😉

This card is quick & easy which is great if you need to have multiples ready to send out – like I do in a couple weeks.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Magic 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 and the Seasonal Labels Dies.  We are working with a Color Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And these are the colors we’re using (pick at least 3):

The Christmas Season Stamp Set is a great one to use to create a natural looking arrangement of leaves and berries.  My card design was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest made by Wild Violets Art – so pretty.  And all the colors we’re using for today’s Challenge work perfectly.

Use a Blending Brush to add some Sahara Sand ink to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  It’s subtle, but adds depth.  Stamp the pine branches from the Christmas Season Stamp Set with Evening Evergreen ink.  Then add some leafy branches with Soft Succulent ink stamped off once.  The stems are Sahara Sand and the berries are Cherry Cobbler.

As a finishing touch, I added some fine splatters with a Light Misty Moonlight Blends marker.  Adhere the art piece to a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Add the layer to the front of a Sahara Sand card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Christmas to Remember Stamp Set with Misty Moonlight ink on a strip of Very Vanilla card stock.  Cut it out with a die from the Seasonal Labels Dies.  Lay the die upside down on a strip of Misty Moonlight card stock and use a pencil to trace around the outside edge of the die.  Use Paper Snips to cut it out and adhere the sentiment label to the mat you just created with Liquid Glue.  Adhere the sentiment to the card front with Dimensionals.  Add a triple loop bow just below the sentiment with a Mini Glue Dot.  Embellish with some Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

For the inside, add a few pine branches to the lower right corner of the Very Vanilla panel with Evening Evergreen ink. A Sahara Sand branch with some Cherry Cobbler berries complete the arrangement.  Add some Sahara Sand to the area with a Blending Brush and some fine splatters of Misty Moonlight.  Stamp the sentiment from the Christmas to Remember stamp set with Misty Moonlight ink.  Adhere the inside panel to a mat of Misty Moonlight card stock before adhering to the inside of the card with Glue.

This is a quick and easy card.  The beautiful Daffodil Afternoon DSP does all the work for you.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of the Designer Series Paper to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the layer to the front of a Basic Black card base.

Use Mossy Meadow ink to stamp a sentiment from the new Catching Butterflies Stamp Set on a small panel of the same Designer Series Paper (on the reverse side).  Then crop with a die from the Tasteful Labels Dies.  Use a pencil to trace around the outside of the die on a panel of Basic Black card stock and cut out with Paper Snips.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment label to the mat you just created.

Adhere the sentiment to the front of the card using Liquid Glue.  Finish off with a little bow tied made with Flirty Flamingo 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon adhered with a Mini Glue Dot.  So sweet!

January-June 2022 Mini Catalog Product Shares !!!

The new Stampin’ Up! January-June 2022 Mini Catalog is packed full of awesome new Designer Series Papers, pretty ribbons and great embellishments.

I have set up some Product Share options to help you get samples of as many products as possible without having to order one of everything!

PLEASE SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE FOR THE ORDER FORM

Here are the details for my January-June 2022 Mini Catalog Shares:

I’ll be placing my Share order January 4th and will use an expedited shipping option so I should be able to have the shares cut, counted, packaged and shipped to you by January 18th.  I will have limited spaces, so don’t delay if you’re interested in joining.  Please place your orders early.  I’ll be sending out invoices on or after December 27th.  Orders received after the 27th will be invoiced right away.  Last day to order my Shares is December 31st, last day to pay is January 2nd by 6PM ET.

Here’s a picture showing how my Shares from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog were neatly packaged & labeled:

From a customer after she received her Annual Catalog Share order:  “I just wanted to let you know I received the shares and how much I like the way you do this.  Having labels on each one [ribbon & embellishments] really helps….. Thanks for the extra work you put into these.”

From a customer after receiving her Spring Mini Catalog Share:  “I really like your shares because you label everything so nicely and everything arrives in good condition.”
