Stampin’ Up! A Cut Above for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is “For the Men/Boys”.  My project today features the A Cut Above Stamp Set.  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.

My post today features A Cut Above – a stamp set from the Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalog.  It’s still available for ordering until June 30.  The image is stamped with StazOn ink on a panel of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Use a Waterbrush and Balmy Blue ink to add color to the background.

Use a Blender Pen to pick up ink from the lids of stamp pads to “paint” the image.  Here are the colors used in this sample: Misty Moonlight for the jeans, Real Red for the cap and lawn mower, Smoky Slate for the wheels and sneakers, Sahara Sand for the handles and bag on the mower, Pear Pizzazz for the lawn, Petal Pink as the skin color.

Adhere a panel of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the front of a Smoky Slate card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Crop the Art piece and a Real Red mat.  Keep in mind that the dimensions given below are the finished size after die cutting with the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  Adhere the art piece to the mat of Real Red card stock with Liquid Glue.

Wrap a length of Basic Gray Well Suited Twine twice around the left side of the art piece and tie ends in a double knot.  Adhere to the card front with Dimensionals.  Use Smoky Slate ink to stamp the sentiment on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Crop with a Stitched Rectangles die.  Adhere the sentiment with Liquid Glue.

Stamp the sentiments with Smoky Slate ink on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Crop the panel with a Stitched Rectangle Die.  Adhere to a Real Red mat cropped with a die the next size up.  Then adhere the layer to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  Simple and masculine – and DONE!

Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Happy 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 new Pansy Patch Bundle and the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Color Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

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

The colors for this challenge are the new 2021-23 In-Colors – love them!  What do you think?  The Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper features all the new colors, so I used it to show them off.

Start with a 4″ tall by 4-1/4″ wide panel of the new Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.  Use your paper trimmer to cut across diagonally from 2-3/4″ up on the left side to the 4″ point on the right side.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the DSP to the front of a Soft Succulent card base.

Cut a strip of striped DSP from the same collection – longer than needed.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere it across the top edge of the DSP panel and use your Paper Snips to trim the ends even with the card front.  Use the Pansy Dies to crop some flower images and leaves from panels of the Pansy Petals DSP.  Adhere the leaves and large flower to the card front with Mini Glue Dots.

Stamp the sentiment with Evening Evergreen ink on a panel of Basic White card stock.  crop the sentiment with one of the tag dies from the new Tailor Made Tag Dies set.  Use the same dies to cut a little tab from a scrap of Evening Evergreen card stock.  Adhere the tab to the tag with glue.  Add a bow tied with white twine from the new Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack.  Adhere the tag to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then adhere the smaller pansy to the card front with Dimensionals.  Embellish with a few of the new 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

Stamp the inside sentiment with Evening Evergreen ink on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Adhere a strip of the Pansy DSP along the left side with glue and add a couple die cut leaves with Glue Dots.

And now that the products in the new 2021-22 Annual Catalog are available for ordering, jump in and have some fun!

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Sneak Peek 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 Quiet Meadow Bundle and the Hand-Penned 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 floral image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set is so fun and easy to color.  Use StazOn Jet Black ink to stamp the image on Basic White card stock and color with Stampin’ Write markers from the Subtles collection – So Saffron for the flower centers, Blushing Bride for the flower petals and Soft Sea Foam for the stems and leaves.

Add a panel of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper to the front of a Basic Black card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the hand colored panel to a Basic Black mat with Liquid Glue before adding it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Add the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set to a panel of Basic Black card stock by using Versmark ink, White Stampin’ Emoss Powder and the Heat Tool.  After it’s completely cooled, crop with the label die from the Meadow Dies.  Then trim the scalloped ends off with your Paper Snips, so they are straight, the same as the top and bottom edges.

Cut another label from Blushing Bride card stock and trim the ends in the same manner.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the two together slightly offset.  Then adhere to the card front using Glue under the left side and Dimensionals under the right side.

Ink the floral image with Jet Black ink and stamp off once on scrap paper before stamping along the left side of a panel of Basic White card stock.  Add the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp stamp to the center of the inside panel with Black ink.  Adhere the panel to a mat of Blushing Bride card stock before adding to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Hand-Penned Sneak Peek 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 Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack combined with the Dragonfly Garden Bundle and the Birds & More Dies.  We are all working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

The theme we are using is Things With Wings:

I also used the Sketch from last week:

Trim one of the large panels from the NEW Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack to size and adhere to the front of a Highland Heather card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I love that the images are scaled down a bit in size compared to the Designer Series Paper.

Use the round foliage die from the Birds & More Dies to cut a panel of Soft Sea Foam card stock.  Then use a plain Layering Circles Die to cut around the outside edge.  Use small dabs of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere to a scalloped circle base cut from Highland Heather card stock with the Layering Circles Dies.  Adhere the layered circle to the front of the card base with Liquid Glue.

Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp a dragonfly on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Color the dragonfly body with a Light Misty Moonlight Blends marker.  Color the wings with a Light Mint Macaron Blends marker and add some shading with the Dark Mint Macaron Blends marker.  Then use the Dragonflies Punch to cut out the dragonfly image.  Add multiple layers of Wink of Stella to add lots of sparkle.  Next stamp the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set on a strip of Basic White card stock.  Crop the sentiment with a die from the NEW Meadow Dies.

Cut an 8″ length of the NEW Highland Heather 1/2″ Grosgrain Ribbon, fold in half, trim the ends at an angle and adhere to the front of the card with Mini Glue Dots.  Adhere the sentiment over the ribbon with Glue Dots, as well.  Cut a narrow strip from the edge of a sheet of Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use it under just the body of the dragonfly to adhere it to the card front.  Add a few of the NEW 2021-2022 In-Color Jewels in Fresh Freesia to complete.

Use Liquid Glue to adhere the strip cut from the Memories and More panel to the right edge of a panel of Basic White card stock.  Adhere the panel to the inside of the card.  Ready to show and share, then send on it’s way to brighten someone’s day.

Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Sneak Peek 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 Color & Contour Stamp Set and coordinating Scalloped Contours Dies.  We are all working with a Color Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

And here are the colors we are using – pick at least 3:

This card features 4 of the colors in the challenge: Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Poppy Parade and Mossy Meadow.  Love how it turned out.

Use Mossy Meadow ink to stamp the floral image from the Color & Contour stamp set on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Use Flirty Flamingo ink to stamp the filler image for the flowers.  Then add some dimension and shading to the flowers with a Blender Pen and Poppy Parade ink.

Use a Blender Pen with Mossy Meadow ink to add color to the leaves.  Crop the flower image with the coordinating die from the Scalloped Contours Dies.  Use one of the rectangle dies from the Scalloped Contours Dies to crop a panel of Petal Pink card stock.  Adhere the floral die cut to the Petal Pink panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Use the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to a panel of Mossy Meadow card stock.  Adhere the Petal Pink panel to the embossed panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Wrap a length of Gold Trim from the Simply Elegant Trim set around the layer three times and secure the ends on the back with Tape.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the layer to the front of a Petal Pink card base.

Stamp the sentiment from the Color & Contour stamp set on a panel of Basic White card stock with Mossy Meadow ink.  Crop with a die from the Scalloped Contours Dies.  Adhere the sentiment to the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Embellish with a few Petal Pink Elegant Faceted Gems and a triple loop bow adhered with Mini Glue Dots.

Stamp the flower bud outline image with Mossy Meadow ink in the bottom left corner of a panel of Basic White card stock.  Add the fill image with Flirty Flamingo ink.  Use a Blender pen to add some shading and dimension using Mossy Meadow and Poppy Parade ink.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells 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 Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper as well as the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

And here is the sketch we are using:

Like most Designer Series Paper collections from Stampin’ Up!, the Sand & Sea DSP has some sheets that feature images and some with textured or graphic designs.   Within each collection, the sheets have coordinating colors.  It’s so fun to combine them!

Adhere two panels of Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper to a panel of Basic White Thick card stock.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the panels offset and at an angle, as shown.  Wrap a length of Linen Thread around the art piece three times, tie a knot near the left edge and then tie a bow.

Stamp the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set with Misty Moonlight ink on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Ink the sand image stamp with Sahara Sand ink and stamp off on a piece of scrap paper each time, before adding the sand randomly over and around the sentiment.  Use a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to crop the sentiment.

To make the mat, turn the die over and use a pencil to trace around the outside edge on a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock.  Use Paper Snips to cut along the pencil line.  Adhere the sentiment to the mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Adhere the sentiment to the art piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then adhere the layer to the card front with Dimensionals, as well.  Add a few Opal Rounds on the sentiment and next to it for a bit of sparkle and shine.

Stamp the seashell image on the inside panel of Basic White card stock with Sahara Sand ink, stamping off on a scrap first.  Use Misty Moonlight ink to add the sentiment over the top of the shell image.  Add the sand image as desired, along the bottom and near the sentiment using Sahara Sand ink stamped off once each time.  Quick & easy and ready to go in the mail!

Stampin’ Up! Springtime Joy Floral 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 Springtime Joy Stamp Set, Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set, Brilliant Wings Dies and True Love Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

Our theme this week is Springtime:

Color a panel of True Love Designer Series Paper with Stampin’ Blends.  I used Light Balmy Blue for the background, Light Granny Apple Green for the leaves, Dark Mango Melody for the flower centers and Light Flirty Flamingo on the flower petals.  The panel is cut with the second to largest die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  Adhere the colored panel to a Basic White mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Wrap a length of White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding twice around the art piece and adhere the ends to the back side with tape.  Adhere the art piece to the front of the Balmy Blue card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the sentiment from the Springtime Joy stamp set on a panel of Basic White card stock, then crop it with the label die from the Potted Succulents Dies.  To make a mat for the sentiment, lay the die upside down on a panel of Balmy Blue card stock.  Use a pencil to trace around the outside edge of the die and use paper snips to cut along the traced line.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment piece to the mat.  Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment layer over the ribbon on the art piece.  Tie a small bow with the ribbon and adhere next to the sentiment with a Mini Glue Dot.

Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp a butterfly from the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White Thick card stock.  Color with a Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends marker.  Crop with the coordinating die from the Brilliant Wings die set.  Shape the wings a bit with your fingers, then adhere it to the card front with Liquid Glue applied only under the body.  Add three small Pearl Basic Jewels on the butterfly and one more pearl next to the sentiment.

Adhere a strip of the colored DSP along the bottom edge of a panel of Basic White card stock.  Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the sentiment from the Springtime Joy stamp set just above the strip.  Then adhere the panel to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Wedding 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 Forever Fern Stamps, Forever Flourishing Dies, In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and Butterfly Bijou 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:

Weddings and spring, flowers and butterflies – they seem to go together in my mind.  This card features a woodgrain panel for a natural look, as well.  Silver Foil rings and Rhinestone Basic Jewels add some sparkle and shine.

Adhere a woodgrain panel from the In Good Taste Designers Series Paper collection to a panel of Basic White card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then glue the layer to the front of a Soft Sea Foam card base.

Use the Layering Circles Dies to cut two rings from Silver Foil paper.  Adhere the rings to the card front with Liquid Glue as shown.  Cut the branches from Soft Sea Foam card stock using a die from the Forever Flourishing Dies.  Trim off the lowest set of leaves from each branch.  Then adhere the branches over the rings using Mini Glue Dots.

The sentiment from the Forever Fern Stamp Set is added to a panel of Basic White card stock with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Crop the sentiment with a die from the Ornate Layers Dies.  Adhere the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut an assortment of butterflies from a sheet of Butterfly Bijou DSP.  Gently fold the butterflies to add some dimension and adhere them to the card front with Glue added under their body only, so the wings remain lifted.  Complete with a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Stamp the sentiment from the Flowering Blossoms Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White card stock with Smoky Slate ink.  Adhere the panel to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.  Add a couple branches of leaves to the corners using Glue Dots to adhere.  And then add a fussy-cut butterfly to complete.
