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.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Holly-Days 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 Happy Holly-Days Stamp Set and Seasonal Labels Dies and the Tidings of Christmas 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:

I couldn’t resist the Happy Holly-Days Stamp Set with the cute bird and lots of sentiments. It was on my short list for the new July-December 2021 Mini Catalog.  And this is actually my first Christmas card this season, so yes, I like it.  I hope you do too!

Adhere a panel of Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper to an Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then use Glue to adhere a strip of Designer Series Paper from the same collection across the center of the card.  Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere a length of Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon across the card front as shown.

Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the bird image on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Color the bird with Cherry Cobbler Light and Dark Blends Markers.  Color the beak and legs with Pale Papaya Light and Dark Blends Markers.  Crop the image with a die from the Seasonal Labels Dies.  Turn the die over and use a pencil to trace the outline of the die on a panel of Evening Evergreen card stock.  Use Paper Snips to cut along the line to create a mat for the art piece.  Adhere the art piece to the mat with Liquid Glue.

Stamp the holly image on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Color the leaves with an Evening Evergreen Light Blends Marker.  Color the berries with Cherry Cobbler Light and Darks Blends markers.  Use Paper Snips to cut the holly image out and adhere to the art piece with Mini Glue Dots.  Stamp the sentiment on a strip of Evening Evergreen card stock with Versamark Ink.  Sprinkle with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat until glossy and set.  Trim the strip down to desired size – mine is 3/8″ x 3-1/2″.  Adhere across the art piece with Mini Glue Dots.  Adhere the art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Evening Evergreen Ink to stamp the sentiment from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of DSP along the bottom edge of the panel before adhering it to the inside of the card.  My first Christmas card of the season is made, many more to go!

Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Hello 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 Tasteful Touches Stamp Set and Tasteful Labels Dies and the You’re A Peach 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):

The You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper is perfect for this color challenge – easy to use all five colors!  Couldn’t resist using it on this fun fold design I’ve been wanting to try.

Once the Basic White Thick card stock is scored, adhere the strip and square panel of the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper to the front of the card base with Liquid Glue.  Cut a 6″ length of Pale Papaya and White 1/2″ Ribbon and wrap it around the front panel over the strip and secure the ends on the back with tape.

Apply Stampin’ Seal Tape to the back side of the strip section and adhere to the inside of the card base.  Cut a 4″ length of the ribbon.  Wrap it around the ribbon and tie a simple knot. Trim ends if needed.  The sentiment from Tasteful Touches is stamped on a panel of Basic White Thick card stock with Pear Pizzazz Ink and the label is cropped with a die from the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut a few blooms and leaves from one of the patterns of You’re A Peach DSP.  Adhere the flowers and leaves to the label using Mini Glue Dots and Liquid Glue.  Adhere the label to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Add some sparkle with  few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour You’re Amazing 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 Color & Contour Stamp Set and Scalloped Contours Dies and the You’re A Peach 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 You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper has some beautiful designs featuring Balmy Blue and Basic White.  The combination is so crisp and clean plus it “feels” like summer.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a striped panel of the Designer Series Paper to the front of a Balmy Blue card base.  Next, use the second largest die from the Scalloped Contours Dies to cut a mat from Basic White Thick card stock.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of the DSP with the blue flowers to a panel of Balmy Blue card stock before adhering the layer to the scalloped mat.  The completed layer is then adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use a die from the Meadows Dies set to cut a leafy branch.  Use Paper Snips to cut it into three smaller branches.  Adhere them to the lower edge of the art piece with Mini Glue Dots.  Use Pear Pizzazz ink to stamp the sentiment from the Color & Contour Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White Thick card stock.  Crop the sentiment with the smallest die from the Scalloped Contours Dies.  Adhere to the card front using Mini Glue Dots where it overlaps the art piece and a double stacked Dimensional under the right and left bottom corners.

Using the Brilliant Wings Dies, cut a solid butterfly from Basic White card stock and a detailed butterfly from Balmy Blue card stock.  Adhere the layers together using small dabs of Liquid Glue.  Gently shape the butterfly to add some lift to the wings.  Snip a Dimensional in half and add a piece under the end of each wing.  Adhere the body of the butterfly to the art piece with Liquid Glue, then peel the paper from the Dimensionals and adhere the wings so they are raised.

Use Pear Pizzazz ink to stamp the sentiment from the Color & Contour Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Use the largest die from the Scalloped Contours Dies to trim the panel before adhering it to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  So pretty!

Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said 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 Elegantly Said Stamp Set and the Simply Elegant 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:

This sketch is a perfect way to showcase some of the new Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper.  All of the sheets have foil accents on one side of the paper – Gold, Copper and/or Silver.  And it’s beautiful, though difficult to capture in pictures.

Add texture to a panel of  Very Vanilla card stock with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  Use Stampin’ Seal to adhere it the front of a Basic Black card base.  Adhere the two panels of the Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper to the corresponding Basic Black card stock panels with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Adhere the larger vertical layer to the card front with Stampin’ Seal Tape.  Adhere the smaller horizontal layer to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the sentiment from the Elegantly Said stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Crop it with a die from the Ornate Frames Dies .  Turn the same die upside down on a panel of Basic Black card stock and trace the outline with a pencil.  Then use Paper Snips to cut along the lines to create a mat.

Adhere the sentiment to the mat with Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the sentiment layer to the card front with Glue.  Tie a triple loop bow with Silver Simply Elegant Trim.  Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the bow to the lower edge of the sentiment piece.  Embellish with  a silver dot from the Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials.

Stamp the floral image from the Elegantly Said stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink stamped off three times before adding the image to the card stock.  Stamp the sentiment in full strength Black.  Adhere the panel to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue and add a silver embellishment from the Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials.
