Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Smile Notecard 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 Daisy Lane Stamp Set, the Painted Harvest Stamp Set, the Medium Daisy Punch and the Leaf Punch.  The Daisy Lane stamp set has two sizes of daisy stamps and they both have coordinating punches!  It’s super simple to add them to card fronts.

These notecards feature the medium size daisy and Medium Daisy Punch.  Using the leaf stamp from Painted Harvest and the coordinating Leaf Punch simplify it even more.  The colors used on these daisies are Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather and Night of Navy.

Add an ink splattered background to the card base before stamping the sentiment.

Stamp two of each daisy in the color of your choice and punch them out.  Offset the layers and adhere them together with a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue in the center.

Stamp the daisy image again on a strip of Pineapple Punch card stock and cut out the center only – adhere.  The Granny Apple Green leaves are adhered tucked under the daisy.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this project:

  1. The card base is a note card from a pack of Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes.
  2. For the splatters, put a drop of ink in a small container.  (I used an empty embellishment container.)
  3. Use an Aqua Painter to add a drop of water and mix together.
  4. Hold the Aqua Painter horizontally and tap it over the note card base to add splatters.
  5. Add the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in the lower left of the note card.  Use the Stamparatus if you’re making multiples – great time saver.
  6. Stamp two medium daisies on Whisper White card stock and punch them out using the Medium Daisy Punch.
  7. Adhere the blooms to each other – offset – with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  8. Stamp the daisy one more time on a strip of Pineapple Punch card stock – just for the center and cut it out with Paper Snips.
  9. Adhere the yellow center to the daisy with Liquid Glue.
  10. Adhere the daisy to the card front with Liquid Glue applied under the center only.
  11. Stamp two leaf images from the Painted Harvest stamp set with Granny Apple Green ink on Granny Apple Green card stock.
  12. Use the Leaf Punch to cut the leaves out.
  13. Tuck the leaves under the daisy and adhere with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Blooms 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.  My card features the Magnolia Blooms Stamp Set, the Magnolia Memory Dies and the  Magnolia Lane 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 this week:

My card features a brand new stamp set that coordinates with the Magnolia Lane Suite, but it isn’t in the 2019-20 Annual Catalog.  It’s called Magnolia Blooms and is in the new 2019-20 Beginner Brochure called Experience Creativity.

To begin, adhere a panel of Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper to a Petal Pink card stock mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Next add a strip of the striped DSP across the layer before adhering the completed piece to the front of the Basic Black card base.

Stamp the sentiment from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set with Jet Black StazOn ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Make certain the ink is completely dry then use the Subtle Embossing folder to add texture to the panel.  Cut the stamped panel into a circle with the second to largest circle die from the Layering Circles die set.  Adhere it to a Basic Black card stock mat and then to a scalloped circle Petal Pink card stock mat.

Use a die from the Magnolia Memory die set to cut two floral images from a panel of Magnolia Lane DSP – it cuts them with a nice black border – so pretty!  Adhere one to the art piece and save the second one for the inside of the card.  Tie a triple bow with Mossy Meadow twine from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon combo pack and adhere it to the stem of the bloom.  Adhere the completed art piece to the card front with Dimensionals and embellish with Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Petal Pink Adhesive Backed Sequins.

For the inside of the card, adhere a panel of Whisper White card stock to a mat of Petal Pink card stock with Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the layer to the inside of the card.  Adhere the second die cut flower to complete.  It’s ready to send on it’s way!

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Is the Day for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  This month our theme is “Celebrate Summer”.  My card features the Lovely Is the Day 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 Team members are sharing with you today.

The Lovely Is the Day Bundle features many images and elements with flowers and greenery that work beautifully together.  Flowers and plants make me think of summer.  I especially love when a single flower shows up unexpectedly to brighten up a spot where I didn’t plant it – a volunteer.  That’s what I have tried to capture with this card.

To begin, stamp the image of the thin branch with Granny Apple Green ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Color the leaves with Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends marker.  Then add texture to the panel with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder – yes, it’s available again!  Round the corners of the panel with the Detailed Trio Punch and adhere to a mat of Petal Pink card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stamp the image of the flower on a stem with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Let it dry thoroughly before coloring the flower with Light and Dark Petal Pink and Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends.  Color the leaves with Light and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends and the stamens in the flower center with a Light Pineapple Punch Blends marker.  Then cut out the image with the coordinating die in the Lovely Leaves Die Set.  Layer the flower stem and two fern leaves cut with the Lovely Leaves Die Set from Granny Apple Green card stock on the panel and adhere with Liquid Glue.

Wrap a length of Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon around the layer and secure the ends on the back with tape.  Add a bow, then adhere the art piece to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Use Granny Apple Green ink to stamp the sentiment on a strip of Whisper White card stock.  Round the corners of the strip with the Detailed Trio Punch before adhering to the card front with Dimensionals.  Embellish with a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

The inside of the card has a panel of Whisper White card stock with rounded corners adhered to a mat of Petal Pink card stock and then to the base with Liquid Glue.  Adhere a couple fern leaves in the top left and lower right corners with dabs of Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Mosaic Mood Thank 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 project features the Memorable Mosaic Stamp Set, the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper, and the Classic Label Punch.

I needed a number of Thank You Note Cards for customers and these were so fun and easy to make.  I LOVE fussy cutting and find it very relaxing – I hope you do, too.

There are six different hummingbirds featured in the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Since I wasn’t able to pick a favorite, I used them all and I am sharing cards made with each of them with you.

The recipe is simple – one hummingbird, one flower and a sentiment stamped in the color you choose.

I used Terracotta Tile, Garden Green and Mint Macaron ink to stamp the sentiment on a strip of Very Vanilla Thick card stock.  Then cut it out using the Classic Label Punch.

Lay each element on a Very Vanilla Note Card to determine the placement you like before adhering.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this project:

  1. The card base is a note card from a pack of Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes.
  2. Use Paper Snips scissors to fussy-cut images of a hummingbird and a flower from Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.
  3. Stamp the sentiment in a coordinating color of ink on a strip of Very Vanilla Thick card stock.  I chose from Terracotta Tile, Garden Green and Mint Macaron.
  4. Use the Classic Label Punch to cut out the sentiment.
  5. Do a dry-fit to decide on the placement of the hummingbird, flower and sentiment.
  6. Adhere the hummingbird and flower with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  7. Use Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment.

Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence 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 Floral Essence Stamp Set, the Parcels & Petals Bundle, the Magnolia Memory Dies and the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here is the fun sketch we are using this week:

To begin, adhere the small floral print panel of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to the card base with Liquid Glue.  Use the border die from the Magnolia Memory die set to cut along the bottom edge of the linen print panel of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere this panel to a mat of Whisper White card stock. Trim the bottom edge with the border die or fussy-cut with Paper Snips, as I did.  Wrap a length of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine around the layer three times, securing the ends on the back with tape.  Adhere the completed layer to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The flowers and leaves in my project were inspired by this card made by Martin Stone.  They are from the Floral Essence stamp set.  The large flower is stamped on a panel of Whisper White card stock with Lovely Lipstick ink.  The smaller flowers are Lovely Lipstick ink stamped off once, then stamped on Whisper White card stock.

The leaves are stamped on Mossy Meadow card stock in Versamark ink, sprinkled with White Stampin’ Emboss powder and heated with the heat tool.  This gives them an appearance that matches the flowers.  Use your Paper Snips to fussy-cut the flowers and leaves.

Adhere the smaller flowers and leaves to the art piece with Liquid Glue.  Adhere the large bloom with Stampin’ Dimesionals.  Stamp the sentiment from the Parcels & Petals stamp set with Mossy Meadow ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Cut out with the small label die from the Perfect Parcel dies and adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Tie a five loop bow with Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine and adhere with Glue Dots.

Cut the bottom edge of the Whisper White card stock inside panel with the die from the Magnolia Memory dies.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the panel plus a large bloom and a few leaves.  It’s the perfect finishing touch!

Stampin’ Up! Framed Bloom & Grow 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.  My card features the new Bloom & Grow Stamp Set, the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper and the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here is the sketch we are using this week:

If you love to color as much as I love to color, you need to add the Bloom & Grow Stamp Set to your collection.  Just saying.

To begin, center a length of Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon across the front of a panel of Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, wrapping the ends to the back and securing with tape.Use the largest and third largest dies from the Stitched Rectangle die set to cut a frame from Whisper White Thick card stock.  I cut with both dies at the same time, carefully checking the spacing and securing them with washi tape before using the die cutting machine.  Adhere the frame over the DSP panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the completed layer to the front of the Balmy Blue card base.

Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the floral image from the Bloom & Grow stamp set on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Center the image inside the third size up Stitched Rectangle Die.  Use the fourth size up Stitched Rectangle Die as well, check the spacing around all sides and secure both dies in a couple spots with some washi tape before using a die cutting machine to cut both the image and medium size frame at the same time.

I had fun coloring the floral image with Stampin’ Blends Markers.  First I used Light Balmy Blue to color the background and tried to give it a soft water-colored look.  The flower on the right is colored with Light Highland Heather and Dark Highland Heather, with a few highlights of Dark Balmy Blue.  The flower in the center is colored with Light Pineapple Punch, Dark Pineapple Punch, Dark Daffodil Delight and a center of Dark Flirty Flamingo.  The flower on the left is colored with Light Flirty Flamingo, Dark Flirty Flamingo and highlights of Dark Pineapple Punch.  The leaves are colored with Light Granny Apple Green and Dark Granny Apple Green.

Cut a second rectangle of Whisper White Thick card stock using the fourth size up frame to serve as a base.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the medium frame and colored artpiece to this base and then adhere it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Tie a small bow with the Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon and adhere it to the card front with a few glue dots. Add a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artpiece and it’s done.

Cut a second rectangle of Whisper White Thick card stock with the largest Stitched Rectangle die for the panel inside the card.  Stamp the sentiment and leaves from the Bloom & Grow stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Color the leaves with Light Granny Apple Green and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  Adhere the panel to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.
