Stampin’ Up! Pattern Party Flowers & Leaves 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 this week.  My project today features the new Pansy Patch Stamp Set, Flowers & Leaves Punch and the (Host Reward) Pattern Party Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

And the Theme this week is Punch It! :

Punches are a quick and easy way to add shapes, color and interest to a design.  Stampin’ Up! has a great variety of punches to choose from and they’re fun to mix and match.  I needed to make a batch of Thank You notes and decided to use the Flowers & Leaves Punch along with the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper.  Did you know that the Pattern Party DSP is a Stampin’ Rewards item that is FREE with a $180 order (before tax and shipping)?  Sweet deal!

Begin building the floral accent by layering two of the large flowers punched from the Pattern Party DSP with the Flowers & Leaves Punch.  Use some Liquid Glue in the center to adhere.  Add a small blossom from Bumblebee card stock punched with the Strawberry Builder Punch.  Add a Basic Black circle punched with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch as the flower center.

Punch two large leaves and one small leaf from Granny Apple Green card stock using the Flowers & Leaves Punch.  Adhere the leaves to the back of the flower with Liquid Glue.  Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set on a strip of Basic White card stock.  Use the banner die from the Tasteful Labels Dies to crop the sentiment.

Adhere a strip of Pattern Party DSP to the front of a Basic White Thick card base, about 1-1/4″ up from the bottom edge, with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Next adhere the sentiment to the card front using Glue.  Then adhere the floral accent over the left end of the banner.  If you want to use Dimensionals, you certainly can.  It was important that these cards be as flat as possible for my mailing purposes, so the samples shown are glued.

A small blossom punched from Pattern Party DSP with the Strawberry Builder Punch with a Basic Black center is adhered to the inside of the blank card to add a little color.  This allows plenty of space for a handwritten Thank You note.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Birthday 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 new Sweet As A Peach Stamp Set and the You’re A Peach 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:

The You’re A Peach Designer Series paper is another one of my favorites from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.  A number of the sheets make a beautiful card front all on their own.  Cards with multiple layers, colors, textures and techniques are certainly fun to create.  And so are Clean & Simple cards, like this one.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the panel of You’re A Peach DSP to the Basic White card stock mat.  Wrap a length of White Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack around the front layer three times, securing the ends on the back with tape.  Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the layer to the front of a Balmy Blue card base.

Use Balmy Blue ink to stamp the sentiment from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set on a strip of Basic White Thick card stock.  Crop with the label die from the All Dressed Up Dies set.  Adhere the sentiment to the card front with strips of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Tie a triple loop bow with White Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack and adhere to the edge of the sentiment label with Mini Glue Dots.  Complete by adding some 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels for a little sparkle and shine.  I used Evening Evergreen, Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent.  I’ve decided these new In Color Jewels are like Chameleons – the colors seem to work anywhere you use them.

Adhere some strips of the DSP along each side of a panel of Basic White card stock.  Add the sentiment stamped with Balmy Blue ink.  Then adhere the panel to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  Ta da!  So easy, so simple, so done!

Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles Snail Mail 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 retiring Snail Mail Designer Series Paper and a sentiment from the Very Versailles Stamp Set that is carrying over in the 2021-22 Annual Catalog.  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 all 5 colors in the Challenge!  When I saw this card made by Tammy Wilson on Pinterest using strips of paper, I thought it would be a perfect way to use my scraps of Snail Mail DSP that’s retiring soon.  (Like it?  Get it before it’s gone for good.)

Cut strips of Designer Series paper in varying widths (from 3/8″ to 3/4″ wide) and varying lengths (from 2-5/8″ to 3-1/4″ long).  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the strips to a panel of Basic White card stock that has been textured using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  Use the Bark 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to a panel of Bermuda Bay card stock.  Adhere the textured panel to a Bermuda Bay card base using Stampin’ Seal tape.

Then adhere the art piece to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use Basic Gray ink to stamp the sentiment from the Very Versailles Stamp Set on a strip of Basic White card stock.  Tie a triple loop bow with White twine and adhere to the back of the sentiment strip with a Mini Glue Dot.  Then adhere the sentiment to the card front with Dimensionals.  Add some bling with a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Adhere a strip of Snail Mail DSP along the bottom edge of a panel of DSP that reminds me of manuscript paper.  Use Paper Snips to cut a small word balloon and adhere with Glue.  Then adhere the panel inside the card with Liquid Glue.  How fun is that?

Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants 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 new Plentiful Plants Stamp Set & Perfect Plants Dies, new Macrame 3D Embossing Folder and the new Bloom Where You’re Planted 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 this week:

As I played with the elements on this card, it kind of went it’s own way.  But hopefully you like it.  I’m happy with the design, even though it went off track a bit.

I cased the potted plants on the brick ledge from page 154 in the 2021-22 Annual Catalog – love how it turned out and love that our catalog has so many amazing samples for inspiration.  The pots and plants are cropped from the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP with the Perfect Plants Dies.  The brick ledge is fussy-cut from a different sheet of DSP in the same collection.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere strips of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP along the left and right sides of the front of an Evening Evergreen card base.  Use the Macrame 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the textured panel centered on the card front.

Use the Perfect Plants Dies to cut 3 plants from a sheet of the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper.  Use the coordinating flower pots dies to cut pots from another sheet of the DSP.  Use Paper Snips to cut a brick ledge from a different sheet of the DSP.  Determine the placement of the elements you are using.

Adhere the clay pot on the left side with Liquid Glue and use Mini Glue Dots to adhere a couple plants tucked behind it.  The brick ledge, the pot on the right side and the plant in that pot are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Adhere a couple Polished Pink Loose Flower Flourishes to the card front.  Use Soft Succulent ink to stamp the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants Stamp set on a strip of Very Vanilla card stock.  Trim the sentiment strip with Paper Snips and adhere to the card front with Dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment on the inside panel with Soft Succulent ink.  Adhere the panel to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  Fussy-cut a couple more small plants from the DSP and adhere to the bottom right corner to complete.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Moments 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 Beautiful Moments Stamp Set and the soon-to-be-retired Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Theme this week.  Here is my project:

And the theme this week is the Beach/Ocean:

The Beautiful Moments Stamp Set works perfectly to create a scene with the two young girls walking on the beach with their sand buckets.  The background and the paper pieced dresses and buckets feature the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper.

Using paper from the Sand & Sea DSP collection, trim a curve in the edge of the blue panel before adhering to a sand colored panel.  Trim to size – 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″.  Use Soft Suede Ink to stamp the image of the girls on this layer.  Stamp the sea oats with Old Olive ink and the seagulls with Misty Moonlight ink.

To prepare for paper piecing, use Soft Suede ink to stamp the image of the girls a few more times – on Basic White card stock, and on Sand & Sea DSP on a panel with pink and again on a panel with yellow.  Use paper snips to cut out the complete image of the girls from the Basic White paper.  Cut one yellow dress and one yellow bucket as well as one pink dress and one pink bucket.  Use Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends to color the arms, legs and face on the Basic White image.  Use Cinnamon Cider and So Saffron Blends to color the girls’ hair.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the dresses and buckets to the white card stock image.  Then adhere the completed piece over the image stamped initially on the DSP.  Adhere the DSP panel to a Basic White card stock mat with Liquid Glue.  Wrap a length of Linen Thread twice around the layer and tie a bow.  Use Dimensionals to adhere the art piece to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base.  Stamp the sentiment with Misty Moonlight ink on a panel of Basic White card stock and crop with the Double Oval Punch.  Glue to a scalloped oval mat punched from a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock before adhering to the card front with Dimensionals.

For the inside, use Misty Moonlight ink to stamp the seagulls on a panel of Basic White card stock.  The seagrass is stamped multiple times with Old Olive ink.  Adhere the completed panel to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! A Cut Above for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is “For the Men/Boys”.  My project today features the A Cut Above Stamp Set.  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.

My post today features A Cut Above – a stamp set from the Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalog.  It’s still available for ordering until June 30.  The image is stamped with StazOn ink on a panel of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Use a Waterbrush and Balmy Blue ink to add color to the background.

Use a Blender Pen to pick up ink from the lids of stamp pads to “paint” the image.  Here are the colors used in this sample: Misty Moonlight for the jeans, Real Red for the cap and lawn mower, Smoky Slate for the wheels and sneakers, Sahara Sand for the handles and bag on the mower, Pear Pizzazz for the lawn, Petal Pink as the skin color.

Adhere a panel of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the front of a Smoky Slate card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Crop the Art piece and a Real Red mat.  Keep in mind that the dimensions given below are the finished size after die cutting with the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  Adhere the art piece to the mat of Real Red card stock with Liquid Glue.

Wrap a length of Basic Gray Well Suited Twine twice around the left side of the art piece and tie ends in a double knot.  Adhere to the card front with Dimensionals.  Use Smoky Slate ink to stamp the sentiment on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Crop with a Stitched Rectangles die.  Adhere the sentiment with Liquid Glue.

Stamp the sentiments with Smoky Slate ink on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Crop the panel with a Stitched Rectangle Die.  Adhere to a Real Red mat cropped with a die the next size up.  Then adhere the layer to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  Simple and masculine – and DONE!

Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Happy 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 this week.  My project today features the new Pansy Patch Bundle and the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.  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):

The colors for this challenge are the new 2021-23 In-Colors – love them!  What do you think?  The Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper features all the new colors, so I used it to show them off.

Start with a 4″ tall by 4-1/4″ wide panel of the new Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.  Use your paper trimmer to cut across diagonally from 2-3/4″ up on the left side to the 4″ point on the right side.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the DSP to the front of a Soft Succulent card base.

Cut a strip of striped DSP from the same collection – longer than needed.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere it across the top edge of the DSP panel and use your Paper Snips to trim the ends even with the card front.  Use the Pansy Dies to crop some flower images and leaves from panels of the Pansy Petals DSP.  Adhere the leaves and large flower to the card front with Mini Glue Dots.

Stamp the sentiment with Evening Evergreen ink on a panel of Basic White card stock.  crop the sentiment with one of the tag dies from the new Tailor Made Tag Dies set.  Use the same dies to cut a little tab from a scrap of Evening Evergreen card stock.  Adhere the tab to the tag with glue.  Add a bow tied with white twine from the new Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack.  Adhere the tag to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then adhere the smaller pansy to the card front with Dimensionals.  Embellish with a few of the new 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

Stamp the inside sentiment with Evening Evergreen ink on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Adhere a strip of the Pansy DSP along the left side with glue and add a couple die cut leaves with Glue Dots.

And now that the products in the new 2021-22 Annual Catalog are available for ordering, jump in and have some fun!

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow 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 Quiet Meadow Bundle and the Hand-Penned 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:

The floral image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set is so fun and easy to color.  Use StazOn Jet Black ink to stamp the image on Basic White card stock and color with Stampin’ Write markers from the Subtles collection – So Saffron for the flower centers, Blushing Bride for the flower petals and Soft Sea Foam for the stems and leaves.

Add a panel of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper to the front of a Basic Black card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the hand colored panel to a Basic Black mat with Liquid Glue before adding it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Add the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set to a panel of Basic Black card stock by using Versmark ink, White Stampin’ Emoss Powder and the Heat Tool.  After it’s completely cooled, crop with the label die from the Meadow Dies.  Then trim the scalloped ends off with your Paper Snips, so they are straight, the same as the top and bottom edges.

Cut another label from Blushing Bride card stock and trim the ends in the same manner.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the two together slightly offset.  Then adhere to the card front using Glue under the left side and Dimensionals under the right side.

Ink the floral image with Jet Black ink and stamp off once on scrap paper before stamping along the left side of a panel of Basic White card stock.  Add the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp stamp to the center of the inside panel with Black ink.  Adhere the panel to a mat of Blushing Bride card stock before adding to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Hand-Penned 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 Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack combined with the Dragonfly Garden Bundle and the Birds & More Dies.  We are all working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

The theme we are using is Things With Wings:

I also used the Sketch from last week:

Trim one of the large panels from the NEW Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack to size and adhere to the front of a Highland Heather card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I love that the images are scaled down a bit in size compared to the Designer Series Paper.

Use the round foliage die from the Birds & More Dies to cut a panel of Soft Sea Foam card stock.  Then use a plain Layering Circles Die to cut around the outside edge.  Use small dabs of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere to a scalloped circle base cut from Highland Heather card stock with the Layering Circles Dies.  Adhere the layered circle to the front of the card base with Liquid Glue.

Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp a dragonfly on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Color the dragonfly body with a Light Misty Moonlight Blends marker.  Color the wings with a Light Mint Macaron Blends marker and add some shading with the Dark Mint Macaron Blends marker.  Then use the Dragonflies Punch to cut out the dragonfly image.  Add multiple layers of Wink of Stella to add lots of sparkle.  Next stamp the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set on a strip of Basic White card stock.  Crop the sentiment with a die from the NEW Meadow Dies.

Cut an 8″ length of the NEW Highland Heather 1/2″ Grosgrain Ribbon, fold in half, trim the ends at an angle and adhere to the front of the card with Mini Glue Dots.  Adhere the sentiment over the ribbon with Glue Dots, as well.  Cut a narrow strip from the edge of a sheet of Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use it under just the body of the dragonfly to adhere it to the card front.  Add a few of the NEW 2021-2022 In-Color Jewels in Fresh Freesia to complete.

Use Liquid Glue to adhere the strip cut from the Memories and More panel to the right edge of a panel of Basic White card stock.  Adhere the panel to the inside of the card.  Ready to show and share, then send on it’s way to brighten someone’s day.
