Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature Christmas Wishes 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 for this challenge.  Today’s Christmas Card features the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set paired with the Toile Christmas Bundle.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my card:

And here are the colors we are using this week:

So you see the colors this week are Smoky Slate, Whisper White and a color of our choice.  My choice is Shaded Spruce – my current favorite for Christmas greenery.

Begin by stamping the single and double evergreen trees multiple times with Shaded Spruce Ink across a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Stamp twice or three times before reinking to create depth.  Then use Smoky Slate ink and the snowfall stamp from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set to add snowflakes in the sky above the trees.  Stamp twice before reinking.

Adhere the art piece to a panel of Smoky Slate card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Tie a knot with two lengths of Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Striped Ribbon, wrap across the art piece layer and adhere the ends to the back with tape.  Adhere the completed layer to the front of a Shaded Spruce card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stamp the sentiment from the Toile Tidings stamp set with Shaded Spruce Ink on a panel of Smoky Slate card stock.  Cut the sentiment out with the coordinating die in the Christmas Cardinal Dies.  Adhere to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Embellish the card front by adding gold faceted stars from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley to the tops of a few trees.

Stamp a few trees on the inside panel of Whisper White card stock in the same manner as the front.  Use Smoky Slate Ink to stamp the sentiment from the Toile Christmas stamp set to the panel before adhering it to a mat of Smoky Slate card stock with Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the completed layer to the inside of the card base with Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  This month our theme is “Celebrate”.  My project features Sneak Peeks of the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set and Umbrella Builder Punch and the Best Dressed 6″x 6″ Designer Series Paper, all from the January – June 2020 Mini Catalog.  I have chosen to celebrate Friendship.  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.

The Best Dressed 6″x 6″ Designer Series Paper features a collection of soft floral prints, so pretty!  I used three of the patterns on this card – the card front, the label and the umbrella are all from this series.

To begin, adhere a panel of the Best Dressed DSP to a mat of Lovely Lipstick card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then use Liquid Glue to adhere the layer to the front of a card made of Whisper White Thick card stock.

Use the Stitched Nested Labels Dies to cut a label from the DSP and also from Old Olive card stock.  Adhere the card stock to the back of the DSP label with Liquid Glue to add stability.  Wrap a length of Lovely Lipstick 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the label, securing the ends on the back with tape and then adhere the label to the card front with Stampin’ Dimesionals.  Use Lovely Lipstick Ink to stamp the umbrella from the Under My Umbrella stamp set on a panel of DSP and cut out with the coordinating Umbrella Builder Punch.  Punch again from Whisper White Thick card stock and adhere to the back side of the umbrella with Liquid Glue to add stability.

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the umbrella to the label.  Punch the umbrella handle from Lovely Lipstick card stock and adhere to the label with dabs of Liquid Glue.  Stamp the sentiment from the Under My Umbrella stamp set on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock and cut out with a die from the Stitched Labels Dies.  Adhere the sentiment to the card over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Embellish with a small bow and a few Melon Mambo rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones sheet.

The inside panel of Whisper White card stock has  a strip of DSP adhered along the bottom edge.  Stamp the sentiment from the Under My Umbrella stamp set with Lovely Lipstick Ink before adhering the panel to a mat of Lovely Lipstick card stock with Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the layer to the inside of the card with Glue.  I hope you celebrate your friendships, too!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms 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 for this challenge.  Today’s Wedding Card features a Sneak Peek of the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set paired with a panel of the Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week – here’s my card:

And here is the sketch we are using:

The Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper has sheets with patterns designed to be cut out and used on card fronts.  I love this botanical design and feel it’s perfect for the wedding card I need in a few weeks.  I cut it carefully with my paper cutter, taking care to keep the frame an even width on all 4 sides.

Adhere the laser-cut panel to the front of a Pretty Peacock card front as shown using little dabs of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The sentiment from the new Forever Blossoms stamp set is heat embossed on a panel of Shimmery White Card Stock using Gold Stampin’ Emboss powder.  Cut it out with the Pretty Label Punch.  Cut a second label from a Gold Foil Sheet, cut in half up the middle and adhere to the back of the sentiment piece so there’s a reveal of gold foil on the right and left sides of the label.

Add a length of Gold 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon to the card front with Mini Glue Dots.  Adhere the sentiment label over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Cut some branches from Gold Foil Sheets using the Butterfly Beauty Dies.  Use the Christmas Cardinal Dies to cut some Gold Foil swirls and some Vellum card stock branches.  Tuck them under the label and adhere with small dabs of Liquid Glue and Mini Glue Dots.  Embellish with a few of the new Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Stamp the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set with Pretty Peacock ink on a panel of Shimmery White card stock.  Adhere to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.  How special to have the ability to use the colors from the wedding in your handmade card!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Gleaming 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 for this challenge.  My card features the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set, Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack, Beautiful Boughs Dies and Greatest Part of Christmas Stamp Set.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my card:

And here are the colors we are using:

The ornaments in the Christmas Gleaming stamp set have beautifully detailed designs that lend themselves well to heat embossing.  For this card, I embossed them with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I still love to watch the magic as the image glosses over when the powder reaches the right temperature.

To begin, dry emboss a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.  Adhere it to a mat of Night of Navy card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use the Detailed Trio Punch to cut openings along both sides of the completed layer approximately 3/4″ down from the top edge.   Thread a length of Very Vanilla/Copper Ribbon through the openings, center the sentiment and secure the ends on the back side with tape.  Then adhere to a mat of Very Vanilla card stock before adhering to the front of the Night of Navy card base using Liquid Glue.

Stamp the ornaments from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set on Very Vanilla and Night of Navy card stock with VersaMark ink, sprinkle with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat with the Heat Tool until glossy and set.  Punch them out with the corresponding punches from the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack.  Add a bit of color to the Very Vanilla ornaments by selectively coloring some of the details using a Light Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends marker.

Use the Beautiful Boughs Dies to cut out one large branch and one small branch from a Copper Foil Sheet.  Adhere the large branch to the card front using Mini Glue Dots, slipping the top of the branch under the ribbon as shown.  Adhere the ornaments to the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Adhere the small branch to the inside panel of Very Vanilla card stock with Mini Glue Dots and adhere the small Navy ornament to the panel with Liquid Glue.  Stamp the sentiment from the Greatest Part of Christmas stamp set in Night of Navy ink.  Then use Glue to adhere the panel to the inside of the card base.  Yay!  One more card ready to mail.

Stampin’ Up! Brightly Gleaming Notecards 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 holiday notecards feature the Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper and the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set and Frosted Foliage Stamp Set.  The notecards went together quickly – and we all need time saving ideas during the holiday season, right?

To show off your favorite Designer Series Paper, choose colors from the print for the card base and the mat.  This is easy to do with Stampin’ Up! products since the Designer Series Papers are made to coordinate perfectly with the card stock colors.

Add coordinating ribbons, inks, embellishments and embossing powders.

Many of the sentiments from one stamp set will also work with those from another set.  Don’t hesitate to mix and match – so many choices!

Here are the Simple Steps to make these cards:

  1. Cut a 5″ x 7″ panel of Pretty Peacock or Night of Navy card stock.  Score at 3-1/2″ and fold in half as the card base.
  2. Cut a panel of Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper to 2-1/2″ x 4″.
