Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms 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 for this challenge.  My project today features the Forever Blossoms Bundle with a sentiment cut with the Thank You die.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here are the colors we’re using this week:

My card today is based on a layout I found on Pinterest designed by Dena Rekow.  I love the contrast of the bright colors with the black and white.

To begin, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (a FREE Sale-A-Bration item) to a mat of Basic Black card stock.  Then adhere the layer to the front of a Lovely Lipstick card base with Liquid Glue.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Whisper White card stock to a mat of Basic Black card stock.  Wrap a length of Petal Pink Metallic Edge Ribbon across the bottom of the panel and adhere the ends to the back side with tape.

Use the Thank You Die to cut the sentiment from Basic Black card stock and adhere it to the layer with Liquid Glue, centered top to bottom and left to right – it overlaps the ribbon just a bit.  Adhere the sentiment panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Stamp four of the single cherry blossoms from the Forever Blossoms stamp set with Lovely Lipstick ink on Whisper White card stock.  Use a sponge dauber with Petal Pink ink to add some color to the blossoms before cutting them out with the coordinating die in the Cherry Blossoms die set.

Use Mint Macaron ink to stamp three single leaves and three double leaves from the Forever Blossoms stamp set on Whisper White card stock.  Cut them out with the coordinating dies from the Cherry Blossoms die set.  Adhere the leaves and blossoms to the card front – sliding the leaves under the blossoms a bit.  Two of the blossoms are adhered with a Stampin’ Dimensional, the rest of the blossoms and leaves are adhered with Glue.  Embellish with some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and finish off with a bow adhered with Mini Glue Dots.

Use Mint Macaron ink to stamp a set of leaves in the lower right corner of a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Stamp a cherry blossom on a scrap of Whisper White and cut it out with the die before adhering it with Glue.  Adhere the panel to a mat of Basic Black card stock before gluing it to the inside of the card.  Ready for delivery!

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Friendship 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 Friendship Card features the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder and a sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set – all part of the Tropical Oasis Suite.

The Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder adds just the right amount of texture to this card front, and it’s the perfect background for the image fussy-cut from a Memories & More Tropical Oasis card.

The sentiment banner is trimmed by hand and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals just above the wrapped Linen Thread.  A triple loop bow finishes it off.

Stamp a few leaves from the Timeless Tropical stamp set on the inside panel to complete.  Easy-peasy.

Here are the Simple Steps to make these cards:

  1. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ panel of Soft Suede card stock and score at 5-1/2″ for card base.
  2. Use the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ panel of Grapefruit Grove card stock.
  3. Then square the panel up by cutting it down to finished size of  3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″.
  4. Use SNAIL to adhere the panel to a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.
  5. Use Paper Snips to fussy cut an image from the Tropical Oasis Memories & More card pack.
  6. Adhere the image to the embossed layer with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  7. Wrap a length of Linen Thread around the front layer three times, securing the ends on the back side with tape.
  8. Use Old Olive ink to stamp the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.
  9. Trim the sentiment banner to size using your Paper Trimmer.  Trim the ends of the banner with Paper Snips.
  10. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment banner to the front panel just above the wrapped thread.
  11. Tie a triple loop bow from Linen Thread and use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere.
  12. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the completed panel to the front of the card base.
  13. Use Old Olive ink to stamp the leaf image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set on a 4″ x 5-1/2″ panel of Whisper White card stock.
  14. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped panel to the inside of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts 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 project today features the new Nature’s Thoughts Dies with a sentiment and images from the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here is the sketch we are all using:

To begin, use the Subtle embossing folder to add texture to a panel of Old Olive card stock. Then trim it down to square it up.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere it to a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Then use Glue to adhere the layer to the front of a Gray Granite card base.

Use Pear Pizzazz ink to stamp the fern image a number of times on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Stamp two or three times before re-inking.  Then use the rectangle die from the Nature’s Thoughts Die Set to trim the panel to size.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the die cut art piece to the card front.  Use Old Olive ink to stamp the sentiment from the Positive Thought stamp set on a panel of Gray Granite card stock.  Then crop the sentiment with a die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

Adhere the sentiment to the art piece with Liquid Glue and add a Dimensional under the end extending over the base.  The flower is stamped with Rococo Rose ink on Whisper White thick card stock.  The butterfly is inked using sponge daubers – first all over with Seaside Spray and then with Gray Granite only in the center – and stamped on Whisper White Thick card stock.  (Don’t clean the stamp just yet).

Die cut the flower and butterfly with the coordinating dies from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  Shape the butterfly’s wings a bit using a bone folder, apply Glue to the body only and adhere it to the art piece.  Apply Glue to the center of the flower and adhere.  Die cut leaves from Old Olive card stock with dies from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  Slide them under the edges of the flower and adhere with Glue.

Stamp the fern image with Pear Pizzazz ink on the inside panel of Whisper White card stock – stamping three times without re-inking.  Use your breath to moisten the ink remaining on the butterfly and stamp it on the inside panel, as well.  Adhere the panel to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Birthday for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  This month our theme is “Birthday”.  My  project features the Painted Poppies Stamp Set and Peaceful Moments Stamp Set and Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.  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.

I love all the floral designs in the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper and decided to showcase this one on my card front.  To begin, use Jet Black StazOn ink to stamp the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped panel to a Flirty Flamingo card stock mat.  Then adhere the completed layer to the front of the Poppy Parade card base.

Use Liquid Glue to adhere the panel of Peaceful Poppies DSP to a mat of Basic Black card stock.  Then adhere the art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Tie a bow with a length of black twine from the Country Club Twine Combo Pack.  Adhere the bow to the art piece with a Mini Glue Dot.  Embellish the card front with a few of the flower shaped sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins collection.  I used small dabs of Liquid Glue to adhere them.

Use Jet Black StazOn ink to stamp the flower images from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set across the bottom of a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Reink the stamp each time you stamp it.  Use Flirty Flamingo ink to stamp the large splotch image over the blooms.  Use Poppy Parade ink to stamp the small splotch image multiple times across the blooms – reink every other time.  Use Old Olive ink to stamp the small splotch image multiple times across the flower stems – reink after every third time.  The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp set stamped with Black ink.

Stampin’ Up! Poppy Moments Calendar 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 project today features the new Poppy Moments Dies with a sentiment from the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set and an image from the Honey Bee Stamp Set.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here are the colors we are using:

This calendar is CASEd from Sharon Burkert and you can see her original post here.

Begin by stamping the sentiment from Forever Blossoms on a panel of Whisper White card stock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Adhere the stamped panel to the front of a Basic Black card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then adhere a purchased tear-off calendar to a mat of Basic Black card stock.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front, as well.  I struggled to capture the Gold Foil in my photographs, so please forgive my glaring shine in some pictures and lack of shine in others.  I couldn’t seem to find a happy medium.

The poppies are die cut from Gold Foil Sheets and Basic Black card stock using the Poppy Moments Dies.  The leaves are cut from Old Olive and Mossy Meadow card stock using the Poppy Moments Dies, as well.  The cute bee is a stamp from the Honey Bee Stamp Set, cut out with a die from the Detailed Bee Dies.  Color the stripes with a marker and add some Wink of Stella to his wings.  I used Liquid Glue to assemble the flowers and leaves and adhere them to the front.  The large Poppy and little bee are adhered to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, to add some depth.  Add a Gold Faceted Gem to the center of the large Poppy for a little extra sparkle.

Use the Simply Scored Tool to score a 4″ x 5-1/4″ Basic Black card stock at 1″, 2″ and 3″.  Fold it accordion style and position it like the letter “M”.  Adhere it to the inside of the card along the bottom edges of the front and back with Liquid Glue to maintain the standing open position.

This calendar will be gifted to my boss, as she is a big fan of the New Orleans Saints football team – their colors are black and gold.  I hope she’ll enjoy it.

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Framed Blossoms Valentine 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 today features the new Perfectly Framed stamp set and Ornate Frames Dies paired with the Heart Punch Pack and new Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my card:

And here are the colors we are using:

The Parisian Blooms Specialty Designer Series Paper is a collection of soft, elegant patterns with champagne foil accents on some of the designs.  Although it’s not easy to capture the foil accents in pictures, they add a very special touch.  To begin, adhere a panel of the Parisian Blooms Specialty DSP to a Pool Party card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Cut a panel of Whisper White card stock with the largest scalloped rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set.  Add texture with the Scripty 3D embossing folder.  Then adhere to a panel of Petal Pink card stock with Liquid Glue or SNAIL.  Cut a couple of hearts from Parisian Blooms Specialty DSP with the smooth edged heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack.  Adhere them to scallop edged hearts cut from Pool Party card stock with the second punch in the Heart Punch Pack.  They layer beautifully!

Adhere the hearts to the prepared layer as shown.  The heart on the right is adhered with Glue and the heart on the left is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.   Then adhere the artpiece to the card base with Dimensionals, as well.  The sentiment from the Perfectly Framed stamp set is stamped on a panel of Petal Pink card stock with Black ink and cut out with the sweet label die from the Ornate Frames Dies set.  Adhere to the card front with a Dimensional on the left end and Glue on the portion over the heart.  Embellish with some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and a bow tied with Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon.

The inside of the card has a couple fussy-cut blooms from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP adhered to a panel of Whisper White card stock with a Petal Pink card stock mat.  The completed layer is adhered to the inside of the card with Glue.  The foil accents in the centers of the flowers show up a little more in this picture.  So sweet!

Stampin’ Up! Best Dressed Floral Birthday 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 Birthday Card features the new Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and a sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set.  We made these cards at our January Inky Fingers Krew team meeting and I’ll probably prep more for my Open House this week.

This layout is CASEd from BJ Peters and has been a favorite of mine for a few years.  It’s my go-to design when I want the Designer Series Paper to be the focal point of a quick and easy card.  The Best Dressed DSP features stylish images of make up, purses, shoes, perfume and other girly things on one side and the reverse side is mostly these sweet floral prints. Love them!

Chose colors for the card base, mats and ribbons from the colors in the design.  The variety of these little floral prints gives you many options.  Are you a flower lover like I am?

And so many choices!  This DSP pack has NINE different soft floral prints to play with.  How is that?  There are 4 sheets each of 12 double-sided designs in this 6″ x 6″ paper pack.

We had a great time today – lunching, laughing, creating and sharing ideas and tips.  Our monthly get-togethers are lots of fun!

Here are the Simple Steps to make these cards:

  1. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ panel of card stock in the color of your choice.  Score at 5-1/2″ and fold in half for the card base.
  2. The DSP panel is a 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ square adhered to a 2-7/8″ x 2-7/8″ mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  3. The sentiment panel is 3-1/4″ x 4-3/8″ panel of Whisper White card stock.
  4. Stamp the sentiment of your choice in the bottom right corner with black or a coordinating ink color .
  5. Adhere the sentiment panel to a 3-1/2″ x 4-5/8″ mat with Liquid Glue.
  6. Adhere the sentiment layer to the card front with Liquid Glue.
  7. Adhere the DSP layer to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  8. Tie a small bow with coordinating ribbon or twine and adhere to the lower left corner of the DSP layer with a rolled Glue Dot.
  9. (not shown) The inside is finished with a 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ panel of Whisper White card stock adhered to a coordinating card stock mat cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″.
  10. The layer is then adhered to the inside of the card with Glue.

As an added bonus, if you join between now and March 31, you get a free Mini Paper Trimmer, free 6″ x 6″ Designer Paper Stack and a free stamp set of your choice with your Starter Kit!  Yippee!!

Drop me a note at StampWithSuePrather.com if you have any questions.  You can also see more information about the benefits of becoming a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator here.
