Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Pine Trees 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 the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set and coordinating Pine Tree Punch, the ‘Tis the Season 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and the Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ DSP .  We are all working with a Color Challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here are the colors for the challenge we are using this week (pick at least 3):

I’m also joining the Paper Players Clean-and-Simple Challenge: PP517

Hooray for Holidays, indeed!  I’m so ready to celebrate – how about you?  The colors I used for the challenge are Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce, Whisper White and a touch of Garden Green.

Stamp the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock with Cherry Cobbler ink.  Use a border die from the Peony Dies to cut a strip from a Gold Foil Sheet.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to add the scalloped strip under the bottom edge of the panel.  Adhere the remaining piece under the top edge of the panel revealing about 1/16″.

Use the Pine Tree Punch to crop some trees from ‘Tis the Season and Classic Christmas 6″x 6″ Designer Series Paper.  The plaid tree and Cherry Cobbler tree are adhered to the panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The tree punched from the Classic Christmas DSP is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  (Color the berries with a Cherry Cobbler Dark Stampin’ Blends marker first.)

Add gold star embellishments from the Most Wonderful Time Medley to the top of each tree.  Add three small Gilded Gems to the accent tree and one medium Gilded Gem above the sentiment.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of Classic Christmas DSP to the front of a Basic Black card base, about 1/4″ up from the bottom edge.  Then adhere the art piece to the card front with Glue.

Use Cherry Cobbler ink to stamp the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set to the Whisper White inside panel.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a tree punched from Classic Christmas DSP to the panel before adhering it to the inside of the card.

Another card ready to send out to spread some cheer.  We need that!  Are you making more cards this year?  I know I am.

Stampin’ Up! Trimming the Town 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 the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper and coordinating Home Togther Dies, plus a sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set .  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here is the sketch challenge we are all using this week:

The Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper has images that coordinate with the Home Together Dies making it so easy to create scenes!  There is no stamping on the front of this card.  All the images and the sentiment are from the patterned paper.

Adhere a panel (snow scene) of the Designer Series Paper to a panel of Poppy Parade card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use the Home Together Dies to cut out a house and some small trees from the DSP.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them.

Add some sparkle to the snow drifts with a Clear Wink of Stella brush.  Use Paper Snips to hand cut the sentiment from the DSP and glue it to a Poppy Parade card stock strip before adhering it with Dimensionals.  Glue the front panel to a Misty Moonlight card base.

Stamp the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White card stock with Misty Moonlight ink.  Adhere a house cut from the Designer Series Paper and then adhere to a mat of Poppy Parade card stock.  Use Glue to adhere the completed panel to the inside of the card.  See how easy that was?  Your turn to try it – have fun!

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Happy Holidays for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  Our theme is “Christmas or Happy Holidays”.  My project today features the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set and the coordinating Poinsettia 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.

Using the Poinsettia Dies with the Red Velvet Paper makes for some beautiful flowers.  The veining details are embossed into the velvet, adding texture and interest.

To build the card front, start by embossing a panel of Soft Seafoam card stock with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  Adhere the panel to the front of a Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then adhere a strip of Poinsettia Place DSP to a Garden Green card stock mat before adhering it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the smallest size two-piece flower set from the Poinsettia Dies, cut two blooms from Red Velvet Paper.  Adhere them together with the petals offset using Liquid Glue.  Adhere a Beaded Pearl embellishment to the center of the flower with some Mini Glue Dots.  Cut three of the berry branches from a Silver Foil Sheet using a die from the Poinsettia Dies set.  Determine the placement of the berry branches and adhere them to the card base using Mini Glue Dots.  Then adhere the completed flower to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Real Red ink to stamp the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set on a panel of Soft Seafoam card stock.  Crop the sentiment with a label die from the Perfect Parcels Dies.  Trace the outline of the die on a panel of Garden Green card stock and cut out by hand with Paper Snips.  Use Glue to adhere the sentiment to the hand-cut mat, then adhere to the card front with Dimensionals.  Embellish the sentiment piece with a medium size Pearl Basic Jewel.

Use Real Red ink to stamp the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set in the center of a panel of Soft Seafoam card stock.  Cut two of the smallest flowers from Real Red card stock and adhere them together with Glue.  Cut a branch of berries from a Silver Foil Sheet and snip into smaller pieces.  Adhere the flower to the upper left corner of the stamped panel with Glue, slipping the branches under it.  The flower center is a berry trimmed from a branch with Paper Snips.  The inside panel is adhered to the card base with Glue.  I had fun making this card and I hope you will, too!

Stampin’ Up! Gnome in the Snow 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 Gnome for the Holidays Stamp Set and the Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper, along with the Snowman Season Stamp Set.  We are all working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

The theme this week is Snow/Snow Scene/Snowflakes:

I decided the gnome with snowflakes on his cap would be the perfect addition to the snowy scene in the Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP. To begin, adhere a panel of the DSP to a Whisper White Thick panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Use Gray Granite ink to stamp the gnome from the Gnome for the Holidays Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Let it dry thoroughly then color the image with Stampin’ Blends markers: Light Petal Pink for his nose and hands, Light Seaside Spray for his hat, Light Night of Navy for his outfit and hat details, Light & Dark Smoky Slate for his beard, mustache and the bell on his hat and Light & Dark Crumb Cake for his boots.  I also added a few stokes of the Color Lifter as highlights in his beard.  Add Wink of Stella to the bell, his beard and the snowflakes on his hat.

The gnome is cropped with a Layering Ovals die and the Misty Moonlight mat is cut with a Stitched Shapes die.  Adhere the art piece to the mat with Liquid Glue, then adhere it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Emboss the sentiment from the Snowman Season Stamp Set on a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock using White Stampin’ Emboss powder.  Then crop it with a die from the Tasteful Labels Dies set.

Wrap a length of Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker’s Twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the background layer three times, securing the ends on the back with tape.  Use Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment over the twine.  Then adhere the front panel to the Misty Moonlight card base with Dimensionals.  Complete by adding a triple loop bow adhered with a Mini Glue Dot and a few sequins from the Snowflake Sequins pack adhered with small dabs of Liquid Glue.

Adhere a strip of the Feels Like Frost DSP to the Whisper White inside panel using Liquid Glue.  Stamp the sentiment from the Snowman Season Stamp Set with Misty Moonlight ink.  Then adhere the completed panel to the inside of the card base with Glue.  One more Christmas card ready to send, yay!

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Plaid 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 Gather Together Bundle, the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper and the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here is the sketch we are using:

I would not have thought about combining the rich color of Pretty Peacock with the colors Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie, but was inspired to give it a try when I saw a card made by a team mate, Karen Ilsley.  What do you think?  The DSP is from the Plaid Tidings collection and has the same three colors in it, as well.  Perfect!

To begin, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP to the front of a Pretty Peacock card base.  Cut a panel of Cajun Craze card stock and use the Banner Triple Punch to crop one end.  Adhere the banner to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Use a Stitched Rectangle Die to cut a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock – final dimensions are listed at the end of this post.  Use Pretty Peacock ink to stamp the sentiment from the Gather Together Stamp Set at the bottom of the panel.  The wheat image is stamped with Pretty Peacock ink multiple times before re-inking in the upper section of the panel.

Stamp the pumpkins from the Gather Together Stamp Set with Cajun Craze ink on Whisper White Thick card stock.  Color them with Pumpkin Pie Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends markers.  Use Old Olive Light and Dark Blends to color the stems.  The large pumpkin is adhered to the panel with Glue.  The smaller two pumpkins are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then adhere the completed art piece to the card front with Dimensionals.  Embellish with a few colored rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels collection .

The leaf is inked with Pretty Peacock ink and stamped off three times before stamping on the inside panel of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP along the bottom edge with Liquid Glue and stamp the sentiment in Cajun Craze ink.  Then adhere the panel to the inside of the card with Glue.  All done!

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Magic & Wonder for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

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

Christmas will be here before you know it, so here’s a sweet floral card to celebrate the season.  The Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper has all the colors in this challenge, so it works perfectly as a starting point.

To begin, adhere a panel of Poinsettia Place DSP to a Real Red card stock mat. Then adhere it centered on the front of a Very Vanilla Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a second panel of the Poinsettia Place DSP to a Real Red card stock mat before adhering it centered horizontally across the card front.

Use Gold Stampin’ Emboss powder to add the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock before adhering it to a mat of Real Red card stock with Glue.  Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere some branches in Old Olive cut with dies from the Sounds of the Season Dies.

Add some small poinsettia blooms in Real Red card stock cut with a die from the Poinsettia Dies set.  Embellish with some Gold Metallic Pearls.  Adhere the art piece to the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Real Red ink to stamp the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock before adhering it to a Real Red card stock mat.  Then use Liquid Glue to adhere the completed layer to the inside of the card.  Add a single branch cut from Old Olive card stock in the bottom right corner adhered with small dabs of Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Pink Plaid Valentines 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 Celebration Tidings Stamp Set and the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.  I also used the Celebration Labels Dies and the Heart Punch Pack.  We are all working with a Theme Challenge this week.  I have two quick note cards:

Our Theme this week is Plaid:

The Celebration Tidings Stamp Set has images and sentiments for four different holidays – Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine’s Day.  And the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper has 24 different plaid designs in different color combinations that span all these holidays too!  Wow, right?  And it’s on sale right now – 15% off until October 31st.

Both notecards have the Plaid Tidings DSP as the backgrounds and the hearts.   Use the plain heart punch to cut the darker pink plaid DSP. Use Liquid Glue to adhere it to a scalloped edge Whisper White heart with Liquid Glue.  Use Melon Mambo ink to stamp the sentiment from the Celebration Tidings stamp set on a scrap of Whisper White card stock.  Cut out the individual words free-hand with your Paper Snips.  Adhere the words to the heart with Glue.

Use the middle size die from the Celebrations Labels Dies to cut a label from the lighter pink plaid paper.  Adhere the label to front of the 3-1/2″ x 5″ Melon Mambo card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Wrap a length of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the card front and tie a bow off to one side.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment heart over the ribbon, securing it in place.  Embellish with a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Use Liquid Glue to adhere a square panel of the lighter pink plaid DSP to the front of a Melon Mambo 3″x 3″ card base.  Adhere a sentiment heart to the front of the card at a slight angle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Add some Rhinestone Basic Jewels for some sparkle.

 

For the inside of the 3-1/2″ x 5″ notecard, use Melon Mambo ink to stamp the heart flourish from the Celebration Tidings stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Then use the medium size label die to cut the panel for the inside of the note card.  Adhere with Liquid Glue.   

Stamp the heart flourish and a couple of single hearts on a 2-3/4″ square panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere it to the inside of the small note card.

Stampin’ Up! Plaid Tidings Christmas 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 Tag Buffet Stamp Set and the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here is the sketch we are all using:

The Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper takes the lead on this card.  It’s like a comfortable, warm blanket, a little home-y.  Perfect for Christmas time.  There are so many plaid patterns in this pack – 24 to be exact – something for every season.  And it’s on sale for the month of October – 48 6″x6″ sheets for $9.78!  Don’t miss out, you’ll be sad if you do.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of the Plaid Tidings DSP to a panel of Whisper White card stock, offsetting the two so the white shows evenly on all four sides.  Then adhere the layer to the front of a Cherry Cobbler card base.

Stamp the sentiment from the Tag Buffet stamp set with Cherry Cobbler ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and crop it with an oval die from the Stitched Shapes Dies set.  Use a slightly larger die from the Layering Ovals die set to cut a mat from Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment to the mat.  Use a sticker from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack to embellish the sentiment before adhering it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Adhere a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP along the left edge of a panel of Whisper White card stock with Liquid Glue.  Stamp the sentiment from the Tag Buffet stamp set on the inside panel with Cherry Cobbler ink.  To complete, stamp the holly leaves with Shaded Spruce ink and the berries with Cherry Cobbler ink in the bottom right corner.  Adhere to the inside of the card with Glue and it’s another card done and ready to send.

Stampin’ Up! A Grand Kid Butterfly Birthday Card for Simply Stampin’ Sunday

Welcome to Simply Stampin’ Sunday – my post of Clean And Simple projects that can  usually be made in minutes using Stampin’ Up! products.  This week’s card features the A Grand Kid Stamp Set, the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper with a bit of Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper, too.  So this card is NOT so Simple, and will take more than a few minutes, but it’s worth it!

My sweet granddaughter is celebrating her 4th birthday!  She’s very much a girly girl, so I chose a lacey mat, butterflies, glimmer paper, and rhinestones, with a touch of Wink of Stella.

To begin, use Pretty Peacock ink to stamp the butterfly wing images from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Use the Butterfly Duet Punch to cut them out and then stamp their bodies.  Set them aside and allow them to dry thoroughly before coloring them.  We’ll come back to them in a bit.

Adhere a panel of Purple Posy card stock to a mat of Pretty Peacock card stock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use a die from the Ornate Layers Dies to cut a frame from a panel of Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper.  Use a die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut the center out of it.  Then use the same die to cut a panel of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  Adhere the frame to the front layer using small dabs of Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the DSP panel in the center of the frame.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the completed layer to the front of a Whisper White Thick card base.

Stamp the sentiment from the A Grand Kid Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Crop it with the small label die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies set.  For the mat, use a pencil to trace around the die on a panel of Pretty Peacock card stock and cut it out by hand using your Paper Snips.  Adhere the sentiment to the mat with Liquid Glue.

Finally, color the butterflies using Light and Dark Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends, Light and Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends and Light and Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends.  Use a Clear Wink of Stella pen to add sparkle to them after they are colored.  Adhere the sentiment to the card front with Glue.  Gently shape the butterflies by lifting their wings.  Adhere them to the card front using Glue or Glue Dots only under the body, not the wings.  Add some Rhinestones to the butterflies and sentiment.  Lots of pretty sparkle!

Use Pretty Peacock ink to stamp the sentiment from the A Grand Kid Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use Glue Dots to adhere the small butterflies that have been colored and “Winked” around the sentiment.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the inside panel to the Pretty Peacock mat and then to the inside of the card.
