Stampin’ Up! Banner Year Happy Fall 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 Banner Year Stamp Set and the Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper, as well as the Apple Builder Punch.  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge – here’s my project:

And here is the sketch we are all using:

The Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper has  a number of delicate lacey and floral patterns and I chose to combine a couple of them to make a Halloween or Fall card with a feminine feel.  The Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder adds the perfect touch of texture.

Adhere a panel of  the black and white lace patterned designer series paper to the front of a Basic Black card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then cut a panel of Whisper White card stock using a die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies – finished size is 2-5/8″ x 4″.  Add texture to this panel with the Ornate Floral 3-D Embossing Folder and then adhere it to a mat of Basic Black card stock.  Adhere this layer to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use the Apple Builder punch to cut one apple/pumpkin shape from the delicate floral design pattern of the DSP and a second one from Cajun Craze card stock.  Adhere them together with Liquid Glue.  This gives the apple/pumpkin more stability.  Use the same punch to cut a stem from Basic Black card stock and a leaf from the black and white lacey DSP.  Adhere the pumpkin, stem and leaf to the card front using Dimensionals.

Use White Stampin’ Emboss powder to add the sentiment from the Banner Year Stamp Set to a strip of Basic Black card stock.  Cut it out with the narrow die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  Add to the card front with Dimensionals.  Tie a small bow with the black and white twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack and adhere with a Mini Glue Dot.

Punch a few more leaves for the inside of the card.  Adhere the leaves to a panel of Whisper White card stock with glue dots and then adhere the panel to the inside of the card base with Glue.  It’s ready to send for Halloween, Thanksgiving or Fall – you decide!

Stampin’ Up! Wishes & Wonder Special Delivery 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 Wishes & Wonder Bundle and the ‘Tis the Season 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Theme Challenge – here’s my project:

Our theme this week is Birds or Animals

The deer in the Wishes & Wonder Stamp Set is the focal image for today’s card.  Isn’t he handsome?  He’s stamped on Whisper White card stock with Soft Suede ink and colored with Light Crumb Cake and Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and then cut out with a die from the North Pole Wonder Dies set.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of ‘Tis the Season Designer Series Paper to a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Then adhere the layer to the front of a Shaded Spruce card base.  Use the dies from the North Pole Wonder Dies set to cut two tags from different patterns of ‘Tis the Season DSP.  Cut a few large and small branches from Shaded Spruce card stock with the dies, as well.

Layer the tags and tie them together with a length of Linen Thread and tie a bow.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the tags to the card front.  Then adhere some branches over the tags with Mini Glue Dots.  Add the deer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Versamark Ink and the Heat Tool to add the sentiment from the Wishes and Wonder stamp set to a strip of Shaded Spruce card stock.  Trim down to a finished size of 3/4″ x 2-5/8″ and flag the ends.  Adhere the sentiment with Dimensionals.  Then embellish the card front with Pearl Basic Jewels.

Use Shaded Spruce ink to stamp the sentiment from the Wishes & Wonder Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere the panel to a mat of Real Red card stock and then adhere the layer to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.  Use small dabs of Liquid Glue to adhere a die cut branch in the lower right corner.  Another Christmas card is done!

Stampin’ Up! Have A Hoot Halloween Notecards for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  Our theme is “Halloween Fun”.  My project today features the Have A Hoot Stamp Set and the coordinating Peek-A-Hoot 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.

I had some Halloween Fun of my own creating these 3″ x 3″ note cards using the Have A Hoot Stamp Set and coordinating Peek-A-Hoot Dies.  Each note card has a bit of sparkle, too!  I used a bit of Black Glitter Paper, Rainbow Glimmer Paper, Glittered Black Organdy Ribbon and Clear Wink of Stella.

This card base is Pumpkin Pie card stock with the sentiment stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The spider web is cut from Black Glitter Paper with a die from the Peek-A-Hoot Dies set.  Stamp the owl image with Memento ink on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock and color with Stampin’ Blends markers.  Use Light Smoky Slate for the tree, Light and Dark Crumb Cake for the owl, Dark Mango Melody for the owl’s eyes, Dark Pumpkin Pie for the owl’s beak and feet and Dark Basic Black for the spider.  Add some sparkle to the spider and the owl’s eyes with Clear Wink of Stella.  Cut out the image with the largest tag die in the Peek-A-Hoot Dies set.  Use Glittered Black Organdy Ribbon and black and white twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo to complete the look.

Cut a spider web from Whisper White card stock and glue it to the Basic Black card base.  Use the Everyday Label Punch to cut a label from the yellow and orange section of Rainbow Glimmer Paper.  Adhere it to the largest label in the Peek-A-Hoot Dies set cut from Pumpkin Pie card stock.  Stamp the owl image with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock and color with Stampin’ Blends.  Use Light and Dark Crumb Cake for the owl, Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie for the jack-o-lantern, and Dark Mango Melody for the owls’ eyes and feet and the jack-o-lantern’s eyes, nose and mouth.  There is a coordinating die in the set to cut out the owl – Yay!  Add some sparkle to the Owl’s eyes and the jack-o-lantern’s eyes, nose and mouth with Clear Wink of Stella.  The bow is tied from Glittered Black Organdy Ribbon and adhered with Mini Glue Dots.  The sentiment is stamped on a scrap and hand trimmed with Paper Snips.

Start with a Whisper White card base.  Cut a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP and adhere to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Add a spider web cut from Pumpkin Pie card stock in the corner.  Stamp the owl image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock and color with Stampin’ Blends.  Use Light and Dark Crumb Cake for the owl, Dark Mango Melody for the owl’s eyes and feet and Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie for the owl’s mask.  Add some sparkle to the owl’s eyes with Clear Wink of Stella.  Cut out the image with the coordinating die.  The circle behind the owl is cut from Rainbow Glimmer Paper using a die from the Tasteful Labels Dies set.  It is then adhered to the largest label from the Peek-A-Hoot Dies set cut from Basic Black card stock.  Loop a length of black and white twine from the Playful Pets Combo Pack through the label to complete.

I hope you’ll get a chance to play with this cute set and have some Halloween Fun, too!

Stampin’ Up! Gilded Autumn Thanks 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  Beautiful Autumn Bundle,  Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack – all from the Gilded Autumn Suite.  We are all working with a fun Color Challenge – here’s my project:

And here are the colors we are using this week:

The Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper has great earthy colors and patterns for Fall and it also has copper and gold foil on some of the designs.  Plus, the two leaves and acorn in the Autumn Punch Pack coordinate with some of the images on the paper!

I used the punches to cut out the acorns, oak leaves and maple leaves used on this card.

Adhere a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper to the front of an Early Espresso card base.  Cut a square of the spattered crumb cake pattern DSP with the largest plain square die.  Then adhere it to an Early Espresso mat cropped with the largest scalloped square die.  Cut one more square from Cajun Craze card stock.  Adhere the layered square to it and then adhere all to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Use Early Espresso ink to stamp the sentiment from the Harvest Hellos stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Then add the scattered little leaves over the sentiment with the stamp from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set using Mint Macaron ink stamped off once.  Crop with the smallest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Cut three more matching squares from Very Vanilla card stock.  Adhere the images punched from the Designer Series Paper to the squares using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Cut four scalloped squares from Early Espresso card stock using the smallest scalloped die from the Layering Squares Dies.  Adhere the mats to back of the art piece squares with Liquid Glue.

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the small art piece squares to the layered square on the card front.  Wrap a length of Mint Macaron ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and secure on the front side with Mini Glue Dots.  Make a bow with the same ribbon and adhere to the card front with Glue Dots over the seam.

Use Early Espresso ink to stamp the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere images of leaves and acorns punched from the DSP to the panel before adhering it to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Wonder of the 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 Wishes & Wonder Stamps & Dies Bundle,Tis the Season 6×6 Designer Series Paper and the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack – all from the Wonder of the Season Suite.  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge – here’s my project:

And here’s the sketch we are using:

The ‘Tis the Season 6×6 Designer Series Paper and Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack from the Wonder of the Season Suite offer so many patterns to mix and match.  Combining them in a project is easy and fun!

For this card, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of the ‘Tis the Season Designer Series Paper to the front of a Cherry Cobbler card base.  Cut a smaller panel of the DSP (scroll to the end of this post for the dimensions) and trim a banner end with Paper Snips.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the banner to a mat of Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Then use Paper Snips to trim a banner end in the mat.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the layered banner to the card front.

Use the largest oval die from the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut a panel of Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The Whisper White oval is cut with the Layering Ovals Dies.  Adhere the White oval to the Cherry Cobbler oval with Liquid Glue.  Use White Stampin’ Emboss Powder to add the sentiment from the Wishes & Wonder Stamp Set to a strip of Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Trim the ends of the strip with the Banners Pick A Punch.  Adhere the sentiment to the center of the oval layer with Liquid Glue.

Using the North Pole Wonder Dies, cut some large and small branches from Shaded Spruce card stock.  Add some small branches to the backs of Holly stickers from the Memories & More Card Pack before adhering them to the oval layer at each end of the sentiment banner.  Adhere the art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Tuck a few large branches under the art piece and use Liquid Glue or Mini Glue Dots to adhere in place.  The bow is tied with Gold Cord from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered with a Mini Glue Dot.  A few Red Rhinestones are added for some sparkle.

Stamp the sentiment from the Wishes & Wonder Stamp Set with Cherry Cobbler ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use Glue to adhere a strip of DSP along the left edge of the panel before adhering it to the inside of the card base.  And it’s good to go – another Christmas card ready to show, share and mail to someone special.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Encouragement Card 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 Forever Fern Stamp Set and the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper with a bow tied with Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon.

My card design is based on the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches FMS448

Pretty Peacock card stock provides the perfect base for the Forever Fern Designer Series Paper.  I love the the way Stampin’ Up! patterned paper, card stock, ink and ribbon colors coordinate.  So easy to match everything up!

Assemble the sentiment strip first – longer than needed – adhere to the DSP panel with the ends extending beyond the side of the patterned paper panel, then trim off the excess.  Always trim from the back side – it’s much easier to see where to cut.

Add a shimmery Pretty Peacock bow and a sweet Gold Glitter Enamel Dot to accent the sentiment.

A simple strip of patterned paper added to the inside panel completes the look.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a panel of Pretty Peacock card stock to 4-1/4″ x 11″, score at 5-1/2″ and fold for the card base.
  2. Stamp the sentiment from the Forever Fern Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock ink on a 5/8″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Whisper White card stock.
  3. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped strip to a 7/8″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Pretty Peacock card stock.
  4. Cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.
  5. Adhere the layered strip diagonally across the panel of the Designer Series Paper with Liquid Glue – the ends will extend beyond the sides of the panel.
  6. Use Paper Snips to trim the ends of the strip that extend beyond the sides of the panel.  Always trim from the back side, it’s much easier to see where to cut.
  7. Adhere the completed panel to the front of the card base with Liquid Glue.
  8. Tie a bow with Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon (with the Pretty Peacock side showing) and adhere to the strip with Mini Glue Dots.
  9. Add a medium size Gold Glitter Enamel Dot to the strip to accent the sentiment.
  10. Adhere a 3/4″ x 5-1/4″ strip of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper along the left side of a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of Whisper White card stock with Glue.
  11. Then use Glue to adhere the panel to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Wreath 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 Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set, the Wreath Builder Dies and some Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Theme Challenge this week – here’s my project:

Our theme is Leaves or Trees:

The Beautiful Autumn Bundle includes a stamp set with leaves, acorns and sentiments great for Fall.  They are two step stamps allowing you to stamp the outline of the image and then fill it with color.  And the bundle includes three small punches to crop two leaves and the acorn.  Check them out – lots of possibilities.

Adhere a panel of Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper to a Crumb Cake mat before adhering the layer to the front of an Early Espresso card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Cut a wreath with a die from the Wreath Builder Dies set from Garden Green card stock.  Adhere the wreath to the card from with small dabs of Liquid Glue.

Stamp a number of outline images of leaves from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set using Early Espresso, Garden Green and Cajun Craze ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  Fill the leaves with Bumblebee, Mango Melody and Calypso Coral ink.  Use the coordinating punches from the Autumn Punch Pack to cut them out.  Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere the leaves to the card front over the wreath.

Use Early Espresso ink to stamp the sentiment from the Banner Year stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Cut the sentiment out with a die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies set.  Adhere the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Add a bow tied from Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim using Mini Glue Dots to adhere.  Embellish with some Gold Metallic Pearls.

For the inside, use Early Espresso ink to stamp the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock.  Adhere a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP along the bottom edge of the panel and then adhere to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  Add a leaf adhered with a Glue Dot to complete.

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Bog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  This month our theme is “Fall Frenzy”.  My project today features the Celebration Tidings Stamp Set, the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper and the Painted Label Dies.  We have a great group of participants in our hop.  Please take time to stop by to visit each blog to see what the Inkin’ Krew Team members are sharing with you today.

This sheet of Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper features a number of the rich, deep colors of fall and pairs nicely with the pumpkin image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set.  I decided a Fun Fold would work well with my design – hope you think so too!

Use your Stamparatus to set up both stamps of the pumpkin and foliage images, ink them with Early Espresso ink and stamp on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  The images are spaced about 3/4″ apart to frame the sentiment strip.  Use Stampin’ Blends in Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry to color the image.

Use a die from the Painted Label Dies to crop the art piece.  Then place the die upside down on a panel of Pumpkin Pie card stock and trace around the outside edge with a pencil.  Use Paper Snips to cut out the traced image to create a mat for the art piece.  Adhere the art piece to the mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Early Espresso ink to stamp the sentiment on a strip of Pumpkin Pie card stock and the adhere to the art piece.

Adhere a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP to the front of the Rich Razzleberry card base with Liquid Glue.  Then adhere a strip of DSP to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock before adhering it to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  Center the art piece on the card and use Glue to adhere it to the front.  Add a triple loop bow tied with the Gold Cord from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack adhered with Mini Glue Dots and a few Gilded Gems to complete.

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.
