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!

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

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.

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Easter 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 Timeless Tulips Stamp Set and the Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper.

My card design is based on one of the sketches from Sunday Stamps SSC252

The tulip print in the Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper collection is perfect for a Spring and Easter card.  There are also graphic prints in the collection that coordinate well with the florals.

Cut a panel of the floral Designer Series paper into sections and then adhere the pieces to the card front with Glue.  Be mindful about maintaining the pattern while adding the narrow space between the pieces.

The sentiment strip is finished off with a triple loop bow tied with twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and some 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots.  Love  that the colors coordinate perfectly.

Add a narrow strip of the Designer Series Paper to the inside panel to tie it all together.  Now it’s ready to go!

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score at 4-1/4″ and fold for the card base.
  2. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ panel of Flowers For All Seasons Designer Series Paper and adhere to the front of the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  3. Cut a 3″ x 4-1/2″ panel of Flowers For All Seasons DSP.
  4. Then cut it up the middle to make two strips 1-1/2″ x 4-1/2″.
  5. Last, cut 1-1/2″ from the bottom of the left strip and 1-1/2″ from the top of the right strip.
  6. Lay out the rectangles and squares so the pattern in the DSP lines up.
  7. Adhere the rectangles and squares to the card front as shown using Liquid Glue.
  8. Use Misty Moonlight ink to stamp the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set on a 3/4″ x 4-1/4″ strip of Basic White card stock.
  9. Use the Banner Triple Punch to crop the left end of the strip.
  10. Adhere the sentiment strip to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  11. Tie a triple loop bow with the twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhere to the sentiment strip with a Mini Glue Dot.
  12. Add a few 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the banner to complete.
  13. Adhere a 3/4″ x 5-1/8″ strip of DSP to a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel of Basic White card stock using Liquid Glue.
  14. Use Glue to adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Dandy Garden 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 Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack.  We are all working with a Color Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

And these are the colors we are using – pick at least 3 – I used 4:

My card design is inspired by a sketch on Sunday Stamps SSC252

The Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack has both 4″ x 6″ cards and 3″ x 4″ cards with a total of 25 different designs plus some sticker sheets.  With so many options, it’s easy to create beautiful cards.

Use a Blending Brush and Misty Moonlight ink to add a blue sky background on a 4″ x 6″ card with wildflower designs.  Trim the card down to 3-5/8″ x 4-1/2″ and then cut again into strips that measure 1-1/2″ wide.  Adhere the strips to a panel of Basic White card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Use the Paper Trimmer to cut the printed sentiment from a 3″ x 4″ card.  Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere a length of Bumblebee Gingham Trim to the back of the sentiment piece as shown.  The sentiment is then adhered to the art piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Adhere the completed layer to the front of a Blackberry Bliss card base with Liquid Glue.  Add a cute Labybug Trinket adhered to the sentiment panel with a Mini Glue Dot.

Use Liquid Glue to adhere a strip trimmed from the floral design piece to a panel of Basic White card stock for the inside.  Then adhere the panel to the inside of the card.  So easy!

Stampin’ Up! Pretty Perennials for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is “Celebrate Spring”.  My project today features the Pretty Perennials Stamp Set and the coordinating Perennial Petals 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.

Flowers always make me think of spring, when so many plants and trees show off their pretty colors.  The Pretty Perennials Bundle has an amazing collection of 21 stamps and 23 dies to mix and match – some coordinate and some stand alone.  It’s a definite must-have from the Jan – June 2021 Mini Catalog.

Use the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to a panel of Basic White card stock.  Adhere the embossed piece to a panel of Purple Posy card stock.  Die cut three large branches from Granny Apple Green card stock using the Perennial Petals Dies.  Adhere the branches to the front panel with dabs of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Use Gorgeous Grape ink to stamp the large floral image three times without reinking on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Crop the flowers with the coordinating die from the Perennial Petals Dies.  Stamp the flower center image three times with Daffodil Delight ink on Basic White card stock and crop with the coordinating die.  Adhere the flower centers to the flowers with Liquid Glue.

Adhere the flowers over the branches on the front panel with Mini Glue Dots or Liquid Glue.  Use a die to cut a couple twigs from Granny Apple Green card stock and tuck them under some flowers and adhere with Liquid Glue.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the art piece to the front of a Thick Basic White card base.  Add a few Opal Rounds embellishments to complete.

Add an image of the small flower on a scrap of Basic White card stock using Gorgeous Grape ink after stamping off once.  Crop with the coordinating die.  Cut a couple individual leaves from Granny Apple Green card stock and adhere to a panel of Basic White card stock with a couple Glue Dots.  Adhere the flower over the leaves using Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the panel to a Purple Posy mat before adhering the layer to the inside of the card.
