Stampin’ Up! Climbing Orchid Bloom for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Climbing Orchid and Perennial Birthday stamps sets to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today.  We have a color challenge this week and this is what I made for it:

Here are the colors that we’re using this week:

I love using Black as a neutral; it provides a great contrast between the background and focal point.  I used Basic Black card stock as the base for this card.  Adhere a panel of Lemon Lime Twist card stock to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of the geometric design black and white DSP from the Pick A Pattern Designer Series Paper pack (available while supplies last – retiring May 31st) to a panel of Berry Burst card stock.  Use Basic Black Archival ink to stamp the sentiment from Perennial Birthday to a strip of Berry Burst card stock.  Adhere the sentiment strip to the layered panel 3/4″ up from the bottom edge using Liquid Glue.

Then stamp the smaller two orchid images from the Climbing Orchid Stamp set with Berry Burst ink two times on Whisper White cardstock.  Die cut the orchid images with the coordinating Orchid Builder Framelits.  Use Lemon Lime Twist ink to stamp three of the large leaves and three of the small leaves on Lemon Lime Twist card stock.  Die cut the leaf images with the coordinating Orchid Builder Framelits.  Use a stylus or bone folder to shape the blooms and leaves to add dimension.  Stack one of each of the bloom images and adhere with Liquid Glue.  Use a Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere to the card front.  Adhere three of the large leaves under the edge of the bloom with Liquid Glue.  Add a Glitter Enamel Dot the the center of the bloom to complete.

Stamp the sentiment from the Perennial Birthday stamp set in Basic Black Archival ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere the card liner to a Berry Burst card stock mat and then to the card interior with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Assemble the layers of the bloom and the small leaves and adhere all to the card interior with Liquid Glue.  Use a single-hole punch to stamp a small circle from Berry Burst card stock.  Adhere the punched circle to the flower center with Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Share What You Love Sneak Peek for Simply Stampin’ Sunday

Welcome to Simply Stampin’ Sunday – my weekly post of  Clean And Simple projects that can be made in minutes using Stampin’ Up! products.

Stampin’ Up! has beautiful new Designer Series Papers in the 2018-19 Annual Catalog which will be available soon.  Today’s card features the Share What You Love Specialty DSP and the returning Blackberry Bliss cardstock.

Here’s the same design – with the new Tranquil Textures DSP and Tranquil Tide cardstock.

         

The first card has 1/4″ Velvet Ribbon in Rich Razzleberry, the second has Nature’s Twine in Blackberry Bliss.  Both are embellished with Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.

And here they are – side by side – so simple, yet so pretty.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a panel of cardstock 4-1/4″ x 11″, score at 5-1/2″ and fold.
  2. Adhere a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of DSP to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  3. Cut a 2″ x 5″ strip of DSP and punch one end with the Banner Triple punch.
  4. Use Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front about 3/8″ in from the left edge of the DSP and even with the top edge of the DSP.
  5. Cut a 1-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ strip of DSP and punch one end with the Banner Triple punch.
  6. Use Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front about 1-1/8″ in from the left edge of the DSP and even with the top edge of the DSP.
  7. Stamp the sentiment from the Love What You Do stamp set on Whisper White cardstock with ink the same color as the card base.  In this case, Blackberry Bliss or Tranquil Tide.
  8. Punch out the sentiment using the Everyday Label punch.
  9. Wrap a length of ribbon around the card front and secure the ends with tape, making sure the seam and tape will be hidden under the sentiment label.  For the twine, I wrapped it three times around the card front.
  10. Adhere the sentiment label to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  11. Tie a bow and adhere at the left edge of the label with Glue Dots.
  12. Adhere three Share What You Love Artisan Pearls along the right edge of the label.
  13. Adhere a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of Whisper White cardstock to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Painted Glass Sympathy for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Painted Glass stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today.  We have a sketch challenge this week and this is what I made for it:

Here is the sketch that we’re using this week:

The new Share What You Love Specialty Designers Series Paper has a translucent, pearlized finish on 4 of the designs in the collection.  So pretty in real life, so hard to capture in pictures – you’ll just have to trust me on this!

Adhere a graphic design panel of the Share What You Love Specialty DSP to a Blackberry Bliss (returning color) card stock base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then use Liquid Glue to adhere a floral design pearlized panel of the Share What You Love Specialty DSP to a Mossy Meadow (returning color) card stock mat, which is also adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Stamp the sentiment from the Painted Glass stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use the Layering Squares Framelits Dies to cut out both the stamped sentiment panel and the Blackberry Bliss card stock mat.  Adhere the squares together with Liquid Glue.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment layer to the card front.  

Die cut two of each of the branches from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits Dies from Mossy Meadow card stock.  Slip the branches under the edge of sentiment panel and adhere with Glue Dots.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere wooden branches from the Touches of Nature Elements under the sentiment panel, as well.  Finish the card front with a Linen Thread “Billie Moan Bow” adhered with Glue Dots.

Not shown – adhere a panel of Crumb Cake card stock to the inside of the card for your handwritten note.

Stampin’ Up! Love What You Do Sneak Peek for the Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products.  This month our theme is a “Feminine” card.  My card features Sneak Peeks of a number of NEW products from the upcoming 2018-19 Annual Catalog – available June 1st.  Here is the card I created:

This card is a Sneak Peek of the Love What You Do stamp set, a panel of Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper and some new Blends colors – Lovely Lipstick Light and Pineapple Punch Dark.  Mint Macaron is a returning color- oh, yeah!

I stamped the floral image twice with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on panels of Whisper White card stock.  I colored the flowers on one of the panels with the new Blends markers.  I inked the background stamp with Mint Macaron ink and stamped it off once before stamping it again over the second floral image.

Then I fussy-cut the colored blooms with Paper Snips and used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere them to the panel with the stamped background.  I used the Layering Oval Framelits to cut out the art piece.  I also cut a scalloped oval mat from a Silver Foil sheet and a large oval Whisper White mat.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the layers together.  Then I wrapped a length of Silver Baker’s Twine around the art piece three time and secured the ends on the back with tape.  I tied a triple-loop bow and adhered it over the twine with a couple Mini Glue Dots.

The lattice layer is a panel cut from the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.  I adhered it to a panel of Mint Macaron card stock with Liquid Glue.  This layer is adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The oval art piece is adhered to the lattice layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals, as well.

For the inside, I stamped the floral image with Mint Macaron ink in the center of a panel of Whisper White card stock after stamping off once.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Love What You Do stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped panel to a Mint Macaron card stock mat and adhered the completed layer to the card interior with glue.

I was lucky enough to attend OnStage here in the Atlanta area this past Saturday.  There were some wonderful live presentations of new products and then we made samples with some of the featured products.  More on that in another post…

Stampin’ Up! Whole Lot of Lovely for Simply Stampin’ Sunday

Welcome to Simply Stampin’ Sunday – my weekly post of  Clean And Simple projects that can be made in minutes using Stampin’ Up! products.

Stampin’ Up! has beautiful Designer Series Papers and I’m showcasing one of my current favorites, the Whole Lot of Lovely collection, on this card.  The DSP and Hardwood background stamp are doing all the work to bring this card to life.

My card layout today was based on this one from Freshly Made Sketches 331:

Fussy-cut the floral image from the Designer Series Paper and mount it to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use the colors from the DSP for the mat and embellishments to further show it off.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ panel of Basic Black card stock and score at 5-1/2″ for card base.
  2. Stamp the Hardwood background with Old Olive ink on a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel of Pear Pizzazz card stock.  (Use the Stamparatus if you have it, plan to get one if you don’t!)
  3. Adhere the stamped panel to a Calypso Coral card stock mat cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  4. Use Liquid Glue to adhere the completed layer to the card base.
  5. Cut two strips 1/2″ x 3-3/4″ from the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper.
  6. Adhere the strips to the card front using Liquid Glue.  The strip of the left is even with the the top edge of the Pear Pizzazz layer and the strip next to it is even with the bottom edge of the Pear Pizzazz layer.
  7. Choose a floral image from the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper and fussy-cut, using your Paper Snips.
  8. Use the edge of the brush tip of a Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to color the white along the cut edges of the image.
  9. Adhere the floral image to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  10. Use Old Olive ink to stamp the sentiment from the Apron of Love stamp set on a scrap of Soft Sky card stock.
  11. Use the Classic Label punch to cut out the sentiment; then use paper snips to clip off the left end.
  12. Adhere to the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  13. Embellish with a Calypso Coral enamel shapes heart.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blooms for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Birthday Blooms stamp set to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today.  We have a color challenge this week and this is what I made for it:

Here are the colors that we’re using this week:

I just love the papers in the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper pack, but have to admit the white-washed wood design is my favorite.  The rustic look is the perfect background for the painted bloom from the Birthday Blooms stamp set.  The sentiment from the Birthday Blooms stamp set is stamped in Basic Gray Archival ink on the wood grain paper in the lower right corner.  I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the panel of wood grain paper to a panel of Crumb Cake card stock.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the layer to the front of the Marina Mist card base.

The large floral image from the Birthday Blooms set is stamped on Shimmery White card stock with Basic Gray Archival ink.  Then I colored it using an aqua painter and blender pen with Marina Mist and Old Olive ink.  After the bloom was colored I fussy-cut it with Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals.  Linen Thread is wrapped around the card front three times and tied in a knot to secure.  Then the ends are curled with the paper snips.  The card front is embellished with some blue Glitter Enamel Dots and Old Olive Enamel Shapes.

I inked the single floral image from the Birthday Blooms stamp set with Basic Gray Archival ink and stamped it on scrap paper once before stamping it on a panel of Whisper White card stock for the card interior.  The stamped panel is adhered to a Crumb Cake mat and the layer is adhered to the inside of the card, ready for a hand written sentiment.

World Autism Awareness Day International Stampin’ Up! Blog Hop

Today is World Autism Awareness Day and I’m very pleased to be invited to participate in this World Autism Awareness Day International Stampin’ Up! Blog Hop that was set up by Jenny Hall.  Be sure to visit the other participants who have shared their work in support of this special cause and please consider making a donation to the Organization for Autism Research by clicking the link shared below.

I chose to use BLUE in my project to show my support for Autism Awareness.  The card base is Marina Mist with a panel of Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper matted on a Gold Foil Sheet.  The oval under the butterfly is Dapper Denim card stock with a scalloped Gold Foil Sheet mat and is mounted to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set is gold embossed on Shimmery White card stock and colored using an Aqua Painter and inks in Night of Navy, Dapper Denim and Marina Mist.  After it is fussy-cut, it is adhered directly to the oval with Liquid Glue under the center of the body only, allowing the wings to lift a bit – ready to take flight.

The sentiment from the Beautiful Day stamp set is Gold embossed on a strip of Marina Mist card stock.  It is adhered to a narrow a strip of Gold Foil behind the top edge and a punched strip of Gold Foil behind the bottom edge, then mounted to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A Gold Metallic Enamel Heart finishes it off with a bit of love.

*** You can find a complete list of supplies for this project – including card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this post.

Today is my One Year Blog-iversary.  In my first post on April 2, 2017 I also participated in an Autism Awareness Blog Hop.  My upline and friend Amy Koenders has a beautiful daughter with Autism, so this is near and dear to my heart.  I ask you to please support this cause, as well.
