Stampin’ Up! Wedding 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 today.  My wedding card celebrates Love on this Valentine’s Day.  I used the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper, Stitched Labels Framelits Dies and the Dandelion Wishes stamp set for today’s card.  We are working with a sketch challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here is the sketch we are using:

The large label in the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies set has a lacy look that combines beautifully with the lace print vellum paper from the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper for a wedding card.

Adhere a panel of the vellum DSP to a panel of Whisper White card stock using SNAIL in the area that will be covered by the large sentiment label.  Then adhere the completed layer to the front of the Petal Pink card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Use Pear Pizzazz ink to stamp the sentiment from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use the Big Shot to cut the sentiment label with the large Stitched Label Framelits die.  Adhere the label to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use the leaf and branch dies from the Wonderful Floral Framelits Die set to cut Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow card stock and Vellum paper for the leaves to tuck in under the label.  Adhere with Liquid Glue.  The floral images are fussy-cut from the Floral Romance Specialty DSP with Paper Snips and adhered with small pieces of SNAIL.  Add Pearl Basic Jewels to the centers of the flowers.  Complete with a triple loop bow made with Silver and Petal Pink Baker’s Twine adhered with a Glue Dot.

Adhere a fussy-cut floral image to a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use Pear Pizzazz ink to stamp a sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set to the panel before adhering it to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Well Written Happy Birthday Cupcake for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  This month our theme is “Birthday”.  My card celebrates Birthdays with the Well Written Framelits Dies and the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.  Please take time to stop by to visit each blog to see what the participating Team members are sharing with you today.

The Well Written Framelits Dies are one of my favorite products in the 2019 Occasions Catalog, probably because I love word dies and this set is a great size.  Cut the words “happy” and “birthday” twice – once from Whisper White card stock and again from Gorgeous Grape card stock.  Use small dabs of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the set of words together – White on top, Grape on the bottom – slightly offset to create a shadow effect.

Adhere a panel of How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper to a panel of Whisper White card stock with Liquid Glue.  Cut two lengths of Bermuda Bay 1/4″ Mini Striped Ribbon and tie a double knot.  Wrap the ribbon across the layer you just created and secure the ends of the ribbon on the back side with tape.  Cut an oval piece from Gorgeous Grape card stock with a die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Dry-fit the words and oval mat on the card front to determine placement before adhering with Liquid Glue.  Then use Liquid Glue to adhere the layer to the front of the card base.  Use Paper Snips to cut out a cupcake image from the How Sweet It Is DSP.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to the card front over the oval mat. – Optional: Use the 1/8″ handheld circle punch to make some round sprinkles to glue on the icing.  I matched the printed sprinkles using Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Pineapple Punch card stock.

Adhere strips of card stock to the left and right edge of a panel of Whisper White card stock before adhering it to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.  All ready for your handwritten note.

Stampin’ Up! Amazing 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 today.  I used the new How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper and the Humming Along stamp set for today’s card.  We are working with a color challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here are the colors we are using:

The How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper collection has such bright and cheerful colors, it just makes me smile.  I love that the Suite has a coordinating ribbon and that the Glitter Enamel Dots from the Annual Catalog match it, too!  So easy to create without stressing over color matching.

I had fun playing with layers on today’s card.  I needed a crafting “fix” and this helped me get to my happy place.  Cardmaking helps me wind down from my day and relax.  Nothing better than a little coloring, cutting, stamping and gluing to end the day.

Adhere two panels of the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper to a panel of Melon Mambo card stock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Cut another 2″ strip of the DSP and use the Banner Triple Punch on one end.  Then trim to a finished length of 4-3/4″.  Adhere it to the front layer with Liquid Glue.  Cut an oval from Melon Mambo card stock with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere it to the front layer as well, over the banner.

Wrap a length of the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon across the layer and adhere the ends on the back side with tape.  Adhere the layer to a panel of Whisper White card stock, which is then adhered to the front of the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use Coastal Cabana ink to stamp the sentiment from the Humming Along stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Cut it out with the Lovely Label Punch and adhere it to the card front with Dimensionals.

Tie a bow from the same pretty ribbon and adhere to the card front with a couple Glue Dots.  Complete by embellishing the card front with a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Glitter Enamel Dots in Melon Mambo and Coastal Cabana.

Adhere a short banner of the DSP to a panel of Whisper White card stock before layering over a Melon Mambo mat and the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  I think I’ll hand write something like “Have a Banner Day” or “Have a Banner Year” when I send out this card – maybe it will bring a smile to their face.

Stampin’ Up! Love You 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 Well Written Framelits Dies and the All My Love Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog.  And it has NO stamping, so that’s a bit different…

My card layout today is based on Freshly Made Sketches 373

The diagonal accent stripes are super simple and easy to add using the Pick A Pattern Washi Tape on a panel of Whisper White card stock.

Cut the words from Lovely Lipstick card stock with the Well Written Framelits Dies.  The hearts are fussy-cut from All My Love Designer Series Paper.

Add a larger fussy-cut heart to the inside panel.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ panel of Lovely Lipstick card stock, score at 5-1/2″ and fold in half for card base.
  2. Adhere 3 strips of Pick A Pattern Washi tape diagonally across a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel of Whisper White card stock – wrapping ends around to adhere on the back side.
  3. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a 4″ x 5-1/4″ mat of Basic Black card stock.
  4. Adhere the layer to the card front with Liquid Glue.
  5. Cut a panel of Basic Black card stock with a die from the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies – size is approx 1-5/8″ x 3-5/8″.
  6. Adhere the rectangle to the card front with Liquid Glue.
  7. Die cut the words “love” and “you” from Lovely Lipstick card stock using the Well Written Framelits Dies.
  8. Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut two small hearts from the All My Love DSP.  Adhere the hearts to a scrap of Lovely Lipstick card stock.
  9. Then fussy-cut the card stock leaving a narrow border around each heart.
  10. Use small dabs of Liquid Glue to adhere the words and one heart to the Basic Black rectangle.  Set them on a slight angle to align with the Washi tape.
  11. Adhere the second heart to the lower right corner of the card front slightly angled in the opposite direction.
  12. Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut a large heart from the All My Love DSP and adhere to the center of a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel of Whisper White card stock with Liquid Glue.
  13. Adhere the Whisper White panel to a 4″ x 5-1/4″ mat of Basic Black card stock before adhering the layer to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Bouquet Wedding Day 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 today.  I used the new Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper and the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set for today’s card.  We are working with a color challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here are the colors we are using:

The new Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper is Petal Pink on one side and White on the other side.  It has one design that’s a full 12 x 12 sheet, and another design that has 6 different card fronts as well as borders and elements to use as accents.  So many possibilities!

To begin, choose the card front design you want to use, trim it and use small dabs of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere it to the front of a Fresh Fig card base.  Use Fresh Fig ink to stamp the sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Add the stitch marks around the stamped image with a die from the Needlepoint Elements framelits, then cut it out with the Pretty Label Punch.  Adhere the label to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Die cut a couple leafy branches from Mossy Meadow card stock using the Wonderful Floral framelits dies.  Use the spray of small leaves die from the same set to cut a couple branches from Fresh Fig card stock and Vellum card stock.  Tuck these elements under the label and adhere with Glue Dots and Liquid Glue.  Add a couple Frosted Flower Embellishments finished off with a couple colored pearls from the Artisan Pearls collection to the label.  Complete the front with a bow tied with Petal Pink/Whisper White 5/8″ ribbon adhered with a Glue Dot.

Stamp the sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set with Fresh Fig ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere to a Petal Pink card stock mat before adhering to the interior of the card base with Liquid Glue.  Fussy-cut an image from the Floral Romance Specialty DSP and adhere to the card interior with a Glue Dot.

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

Stampin’ Up! Needle & Thread Banner for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

It’s time again for our monthly Joint Blog Hop.  Be sure to stop by to check out what all the talented bloggers in this Hop have shared.  We have a sketch challenge AND a color challenge this week and can choose to participate in either one or both – I chose to go with both challenges this time.  Here is my card :

And here is the sketch challenge and the color challenge:

   

The Needle & Thread stamp set has images that appear to be hand stitched.  There is a step to take that helps to keep the stamped images looking textured instead of solid.  Scrape the edge of a bone folder across the surface of the stamp pad a few times to move most of the ink deeper into the pad, then ink up your stamp.  This results in less ink on the stamp surface and a cleaner and more detailed image.

Use the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder to add texture to a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere it to a panel of Mango Melody card stock with SNAIL and then adhere the layer to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Layer the Needlepoint Nook DSP banner over the strip of DSP and adhere to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Stamp the floral images from the Needle & Thread stamp set on Whisper White card stock with Flirty Flamingo and Mango Melody ink.  Use Old Olive ink to stamp the leafy branches image on Whisper White, as well.  Then cut them out with the coordinating dies from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies.  Cut some leaves from Old Olive card stock with the dies, as well.  Adhere the images to the banner and card front with Liquid Glue.  The largest bloom is adhered with Dimensionals.  Finish with a triple loop bow tied with Old Olive Linen Thread adhered with a Glue Dot.

The interior is a panel of Whisper White adhered to a Mango Melody mat, which is then adhered to the card base with Liquid Glue.  Add a stamped and die cut leafy branch and flower to complete.  This happy card is sure to please whoever receives it.
