Magnolia Memory Thanks Pillow Box 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 project features the Magnolia Memory Dies, the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, the Timeless Label Punch and a Kraft Pillow Box. We made these last weekend at my Open House event and everyone loved them!

The petals and leaves are die cut with the Magnolia Memory Dies.  Gently shape the petals before adhering the layers.  The label is cut with the Timeless Label Punch.

Assemble the Kraft Pillow Box before adhering anything to it, since it has a curved surface.  The label is adhered first, then the bloom.  Last, tuck the leaves under the flower.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this project:

  1. Use the Magnolia Memory Dies to cut two small petal clusters and two medium petal clusters from Whisper White card stock.
  2. Use a sponge dauber and a light touch to apply some Pineapple Punch ink to the centers of the two smaller petal clusters.
  3. Curl and shape the petals with your fingers or a bone folder to add some dimension to the flower.
  4. Apply a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue in the center of each cluster to adhere the petal layers together.
  5. Use the Magnolia Memory Dies to cut a small stamen from a scrap of Daffodil Delight card stock.
  6. Adhere the stamen piece with some Liquid Glue and finish with a large Gold Faceted Gem.
  7. Use Early Espresso ink to stamp the sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set on a panel of Daffodil Delight card stock.
  8. Use the Timeless Punch to cut the sentiment out, with the sentiment all the way to the right end of the label.
  9. Assemble the Kraft Pillow Box before adhering anything to it, since it has a curved surface.
  10. Use Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment label first, all the way to the right.
  11. Use Glue to adhere the magnolia bloom on the left, overlapping the end of the label.
  12. Cut a couple leaves from Mossy Meadow card stock using the Magnolia Memory Dies.
  13. Adhere the leaves under the flower with some Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Memorable Mosaic Thank You 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.  My card features the Memorable Mosaic stamp set and the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here is the sketch we are using:

The Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper has shiny accents on one side of each of the six different mosaic design papers which is hard to capture in photographs, but quite striking in person.  It calls to me to fussy-cut the images, which I did, of course.

To begin, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper to a card base of Garden Green card stock.  Then use the Subtle Dynamic embossing folder to add texture to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock before adhering it to a Blushing Bride mat with Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the layer to the card front with Glue.

Trim a patterned strip from the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Then use the Timeless Label punch to round the ends.  The way to do this is to slip the end of the strip into the back side the punch from the center opening through the cutting edge before closing the punch.  Adhere the strip across the front of the card with Liquid Glue.

Fussy-cut a flower and some leaves from a panel of Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP.  Adhere them to the card front with Liquid Glue, layering over the strip, as shown.  Use Blushing Bride ink to stamp the sentiment from the Memorable Mosaic stamp set on a strip of Very Vanilla card stock.  Use the Classic Label punch to cut out the sentiment for the card front.  Adhere using Glue.

Adhere two patterned strips of Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP to the left and right edges of a panel of Very Vanilla card stock before adhering it to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue. With this finishing touch, the inside panel now mimics the design of the card front.  Easy and fun!

Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence 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.  My card features the Floral Essence stamp set and the Well Written Framelits Dies.  We are all working with a color challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here are the colors we are using – with an optional pop of color:

My design is based on the sketch challenge for Freshly Made Sketches #388

Begin with the decorative panel by embossing Whisper White card stock with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Trim down to size and use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere it to a Basic Black card stock mat and then adhere the layer to the Basic Gray card base.

Use the Well Written Framelits Dies to cut the sentiment from Basic Black card stock.  Adhere the sentiment to the decorative panel using small dabs of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp three flowers and three leafy branches on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  When thoroughly dry, use the Leaf Punch to cut out the leafy branches and use Paper Snips Scissors to fussy-cut the flowers.

Stamp the flower centers with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a scrap of Real Red card stock four times and after thoroughly dry, cut out with the 1/2″ Circle Punch.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the flower centers to the flowers.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the flowers to the left and right sides of the decorative panel and add a Dimensional under the edges that extend over the card base.

The center flower is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the leafy branches are tucked under the flowers and adhered with Glue Dots.  Add a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add a little bling.

Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the flower image off the edge of the Whisper White card stock panel for the inside of the card.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the flower center and also to adhere the inside panel to the interior of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature Father’s Day for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  This month our theme is a “Masculine” card.  My card celebrates Father’s Day and features two stamp sets – Rooted in Nature and Itty Bitty Greetings.  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 Team members are sharing with you today.

For the art piece, use a sponge dauber to ink the large oak tree stamp with Granny Apple Green ink.  Then use another sponge dauber to add a bit of Garden Green ink for added depth and dimension.  Use the brush tip of a Soft Suede Stampin’ Write marker to color the tree trunk and trace over the branches.

Then use your breath to moisten all the inked areas and stamp on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Cut the image out with a Rectangle Stitched Framelits Die and use Liquid Glue to adhere to a Soft Suede card stock mat cut with a die the next size up.  Wrap the art piece with a length of Nature’s Twine in Crumb Cake, tie a knot and fray the ends.

For the decorative panel (hand stamped DSP) use Garden Green ink and a leaf stamp from the Rooted in Nature Stamp set to randomly add leaves on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock.  Follow by adding additional leaves inking with Granny Apple Green ink and stamping off once each time.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped panel to a mat of Soft Suede card stock, which is then adhered to the Very Vanilla Thick card base with Glue, as well.

Stamp the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and punch out with the Classic Label Punch.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the art piece to the card front.  Then adhere the sentiment label with Liquid Glue and add the copper accent Leaves Trinket using a Glue Dot to secure in place.

Inside the card, stamp a couple leaves in Garden Green ink and one in Granny Apple Green ink, all images are stamped off first.

Stampin’ Up! Free As A Bird 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.  My card features a Sneak Peek of the Free As A Bird stamp set and the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper – both from the new 2019-20 Annual Catalog – available for ordering on June 4th.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here is the sketch we are using:

I love birds AND I love flowers so the Bird Ballad Suite is definitely on my favorites list of products in the new 2019-20 Annual Catalog.  Cute birds, sweet flowers, sentiments about friendship, great patterns of designer series paper for layering and fussy-cutting, trinkets, lace, laser-cut cards and label dies. Such an awesome collection of products and so easy to order with one item number (#152190) for all this goodness!

To begin, adhere a panel of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to the front of the Mossy Meadow Card stock base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Adhere a second, smaller panel of Bird Ballad DSP to the front, again using Liquid Glue.

Use your Paper Snips Scissors to fussy-cut an image of a bird on a branch with flowers from a panel of Bird Ballad DSP.  Cut a circle of Whisper White card stock using a die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits die set.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the bird image to the circle to create your art piece.

Stamp the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set on a strip of Whisper White card stock, to the right of center.  Trim the banner ends using Paper Snips.  Then adhere the banner to the art piece with Liquid Glue.  Fussy-cut a flower image from the Bird Ballad DSP and adhere to the left side of the banner with Glue.  Adhere the art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then add some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the art piece and card front for a little bit of sparkle.

Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set in the center of a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Fussy-cut one more floral image from a panel of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and adhere to the inside panel in the lower left corner using Liquid Glue.  Use Glue to adhere the completed panel to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Vibrant Vases 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.  My card features the Vibrant Vases and Itty Bitty Greetings stamp sets – which are both carrying over to the new Annual Catalog.  I also used the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper which will only be available until June 3rd, or while supplies last.  Get it while you can!  We are all working with a color challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here are the colors we are using:

My card layout was inspired by The Paper Players Sketch Challenge PP439:

The Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper coordinates so well with the many Stitched Die options offered by Stampin’ Up!  I will miss it when it retires next month.

To begin, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere two panels of Needlepoint Nook DSP to the front of the Sahara Sand card stock base – one vertical and one horizontal.

Emboss the vase images with White Stampin’ Emboss powder on Sahara Sand card stock before cutting them out with the coordinating Vases Builder Punch.  Use Pear Pizzazz ink to stamp the daisy image on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use Highland Heather ink to stamp color in the flower petals. Determine the placement of the vase and then cut the panel with a circle die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

Stamp the tulip bloom and leaf on a scrap of Whisper White card stock with Pear Pizzazz ink.  Add color to the flower and leaf with the coordinating stamps and Highland Heather and Pear Pizzazz ink.  Cut them out with the Vase Builder punch.  Stamp the stem for the tulip then add the flower and leaf pieces with Liquid Glue.  Use Glue to adhere the vases.

Stamp the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Cut it out with the Classic Label Punch.  Adhere it to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Adhere the completed art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Add Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the centers of the daisies and one more on the sentiment label.

Add two strips of Needlepoint Nook DSP to a panel of Whisper White card stock – one vertical and one horizontal.  Then adhere the panel to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  All done and ready to write a heartfelt note.
