Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints 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 Nature’s Prints Bundle and the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper.  We are working with a Color Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And here are the colors we are using – I used Starry Sky, Gray Granite and White

I’m also joining the Paper Players for this week’s PP601 Sketch Challenge:

The sketch worked perfectly with the look I was going for and it was fun to play along.

Adhere a Gray Granite patterned panel of the Sun Prints DSP to a Basic White mat.  Add a strip of the striped pattern on the left side.  Then adhere the front panel to the front of a Starry Sky card base with Liquid Glue.  Use Starry Sky and Gray Granite ink to stamp the botanical images from the Nature’s Prints stamp set on Basic White card stock.  Crop with the corresponding dies from the Natural Prints Dies set.

Adhere the botanical accents to the front panel with Mini Glue Dots.  Stamp the sentiment from the Nature’s Prints Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White card stock and crop with the label die from the Natural Prints Dies set.  To make the mat for the sentiment, place the label die cutting side up on a panel of Starry Sky card stock.  Trace around the outside edge of the die with a pencil.  Next, trim along the line with Paper Snips. Adhere the sentiment to the hand cut mat with Liquid Glue.

Adhere the sentiment to the front panel with Dimensionals.  Add a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels for some sparkle.  Tie a triple bow with Starry Sky Metallic Woven Ribbon and adhere with a rolled Mini Glue Dot.

Adhere a panel of Basic White card stock to a Gray Granite mat before adhering to the inside of the card base.  Use Starry Sky ink stamped off once to add the fern image to a panel of Basic White card stock.  Crop with the corresponding die.  Adhere the image to the bottom right corner with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Speedy Recovery with Tea Boutique 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 Tea Boutique Suite that includes the Cup of Tea Stamp Set, Tea Cup Dies, Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper and the Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes.  We are working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And here is the sketch we are using:

The Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes feature the new In Colors and have designs that coordinate with the Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper.  The card base I chose is a Starry Sky pattern.  Add a wide strip of DSP in the flowers and envelopes pattern from the Tea Boutique DSP across the bottom part of the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then cut a second strip of  DSP in an Orchid Oasis pattern to adhere in the lower left – again with Glue.

Using the Stylish Shapes Dies, cut a 2-1/8″ circle from a Crushed Curry pattern of Butterfly Wishes DSP.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere it to a Basic White scalloped circle mat cut with the Layering Circles Dies.

Use Sweet Sorbet ink to stamp the striped tea cup from the Cup of Tea Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White card stock. Crop the design with the coordinating Tea Cup Dies. Adhere the tea cup to the layered circle with Liquid Glue.

Use Starry Sky ink to stamp the sentiment from the Speedy Recovery Stamp Set on a strip of Basic White card stock.  Crop the sentiment with a banner die from the Stylish Shapes die set.  Adhere the sentiment to the layered circle with Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the layered art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Add some Starry Sky embellishments from the 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots.  Tie a small triple-loop bow from the 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine in Starry Sky.  Adhere to the banner end with a Mini Glue Dot.

Stamp the sentiment from the Speedy Recovery Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White card stock with Starry Sky ink.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a thin strip of DSP along the bottom edge of the panel before adhering it to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest 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 Hello Harvest Stamp Set and the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper.  We are working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

Our theme this week is Designer Series Paper:

This card features three patterns from the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper collection.  It’s so easy to create when the patterns coordinate so well with each other.  And speaking of easy – this is an easy Fun Fold card.

This fun fold is called a Joy Fold.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere all the panels of DSP and card stock.  The largest panel (Mossy Meadow with tendrils) of the Rustic Harvest DSP is adhered to the inside/front of the card base.  The medium sized piece (pumpkins) is adhered to the front of the smaller card.  The horizontal patterned piece is adhered to the lower front flap.

Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the sentiment from the Hello Harvest stamp set on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Crop with the smallest die in the Deckled Rectangles Dies set.  Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut a leaf from the Designer Series paper and adhere it to the sentiment piece with Liquid Glue.  Add a few Amber Gems from the Leaf Label & Amber Gem Combo Pack.  Adhere the sentiment to the small card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then use Liquid Glue to adhere the small card – centered top to bottom and left to right – to the front of the card base.

Adhere a panel of Basic White card stock to the inside of the small card with Liquid Glue.  Add a fussy-cut pumpkin and leaf to the bottom right corner, adhered with Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Basket of Geraniums for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is “Celebrate Summer”.  My card today features the Cheerful Basket Stamp Set, Full Basket Dies, the Geraniums Dies plus the Hues of Happiness 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.

As a gardener, summer is my favorite season.  And geraniums always make me think of summer.  The front is a sunshine colored panel of Hues of Happiness Designer Series paper adhered to a Basic White card stock mat.  The layer is then adhered to the front of a Granny Apple Green card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Bright and happy.

This card front is die cuts only.  Yep!  No stamping at all on the front.  These dies are awesome and it’s so fun to combine a few different collections.  Use the Geraniums Dies set for the main plant and flowers.  The pretty basket is built with the Full Basket Dies set.  The extra greenery at the base of the plant is from the Natural Prints Dies set.

Using the Geraniums Dies, cut the main plant piece from a panel of Granny Apple Green card stock.  The piece that goes behind the two big leaves is Parakeet Party card stock.  Adhere with small dabs of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The flower base is cut from Real Red card stock.  The flower detail piece is cut from Sweet Sorbet card stock and adhered with Liquid Glue.

Use the Full Basket Dies to build the basket.  The basket base is cut from Crumb Cake card stock.  Hand cut a piece of Soft Suede card stock to adhere to the back side of the basket die cut.  The bands around the basket are cut from Grey Granite card stock.  And the handle is cut from Early Espresso.  Adhere all the pieces with dabs of Liquid Glue.

The extra greenery at the top of the basket is cut from Garden Green card stock with dies from the Natural Prints Dies.  Dry fit to determine the placement of all the components before adhering to the card front with Mini Glue Dots and/or Liquid Glue.  Add some Brushed Brass Butterflies to complete.

Use Sweet Sorbet ink to stamp the sentiment from the Cheerful Basket stamp set on the Basic White inside panel.  Glue the panel to a So Saffron card stock mat before adhering to the inside of the card.  Add one more Brushed Brass butterfly by the sentiment just for fun.

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

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Penciled 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 Go To Greetings Stamp Set and the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper.  We are working with a Color Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And this is the Color Challenge this week:

As you can probably tell, the color I chose to add is Real Red.  The white sketches on the black background in the wildflower print pattern of this sheet of Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper caught my attention right away.  It’s delicate and bold at the same time.  Love it!

Adhere a panel of the Designer Series Paper to a Basic Black card stock mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Wrap a length of Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon around the layer and adhere the ends on the back with tape.  Adhere the layer to the front of a Real Red card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Crop the sentiment with a die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment to a panel of Real Red card stock.  The sentiment layer is adhered to the card front over the top of the ribbon with Dimensionals.  Add some sparkle with a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels and use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere a bow tied with Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon on the left side.

Stamp a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a panel of Basic White card stock for the inside.  Adhere the stamped panel to a panel of Basic Black card stock and then adhere the layer to the inside of the card base using Liquid Glue for both.  All done and ready to send!

Stampin’ Up! Abigail Rose Hand-Colored Thanks for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Bog 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 Amazing Thanks Dies, the Cheerful Basket Stamp Set and the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper.  We are working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And this is the Sketch we are using:

The Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper has neutral colors and the designs are mostly monochromatic.  Of course, you can always add color if you wish.  I chose to color this design.  I used Watercolor Pencils (without water) so it would have a softer look than coloring with markers.  To recreate this card use Real Red for the flowers and Old Olive for the leaves.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the Designer Series Paper to a panel of Gold Metallic Specialty Paper with the panels offset.  Wrap a length of Gold Shimmer Ribbon diagonally across the layer and adhere the ends to the back side with tape.

Use the Amazing Thanks Dies to cut the sentiment from the Gold Metallic Specialty Paper and Mossy Meadow card stock.  Adhere the die cuts to each other with Liquid Glue.  The die cut sentiment and a bow are adhered to the front layer with Mini Glue Dots.  Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the layer to the front of a Mossy Meadow card base.  Add a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels near the sentiment for a little sparkle.

Stamp the sentiment from the Cheerful Basket stamp set with Old Olive ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Adhere the panel to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Hedgehogs 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 Happy Hedgehogs Stamp Set, the Hedgehog Builder Punch and the Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper.  We are working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

Our Theme this week is “Critters”:

This cute Hedgehog critter is hanging out in the meadow with his friend, the butterfly.  The card be for any occasion, or no occasion at all, you decide!

Begin by adhering a panel of Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper to a panel of Garden Green card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the plant image on a panel of Basic White card stock, over to the right side and extending off the panel at the bottom.  Stamp the hedgehog and the butterfly on scraps of Basic White card stock.  Hint: make sure the hedgehog is on a panel large enough to easily align it when punching.  Use the Hedgehog Builder Punch to crop the critter!

Use the following Stampin’ Blends markers to color the plant: Dark Crumb Cake, Dark Petal Pink and Dark Granny Apple Green.  The hedgehog is colored with the Light Crumb Cake and Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends markers.  The butterfly is colored with a Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends marker.  Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut the butterfly after it is colored.

Use Granny Apple Green ink to stamp some grass along the bottom edge of the artpiece.  Adhere the artpiece to the Garden Green mat with Liquid Glue.  Then adhere it to the front panel layer, centered top to bottom.  The front panel can now be adhered to the front of the card base.  Add the butterfly with Liquid Glue.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the hedgehog.  Add some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the flower centers to complete.

The inside is blank for now.  Adhere a strip of Tea Boutique DSP along the bottom edge of a panel of Basic White card stock before adhering it to a Garden Green mat.  Then adhere the layer to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.

*** You can find a complete list of supplies for this project at the very bottom of this post.
