Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour You’re Amazing 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 Color & Contour Stamp Set and Scalloped Contours Dies 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’re using:

The You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper has some beautiful designs featuring Balmy Blue and Basic White.  The combination is so crisp and clean plus it “feels” like summer.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a striped panel of the Designer Series Paper to the front of a Balmy Blue card base.  Next, use the second largest die from the Scalloped Contours Dies to cut a mat from Basic White Thick card stock.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of the DSP with the blue flowers to a panel of Balmy Blue card stock before adhering the layer to the scalloped mat.  The completed layer is then adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use a die from the Meadows Dies set to cut a leafy branch.  Use Paper Snips to cut it into three smaller branches.  Adhere them to the lower edge of the art piece with Mini Glue Dots.  Use Pear Pizzazz ink to stamp the sentiment from the Color & Contour Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White Thick card stock.  Crop the sentiment with the smallest die from the Scalloped Contours Dies.  Adhere to the card front using Mini Glue Dots where it overlaps the art piece and a double stacked Dimensional under the right and left bottom corners.

Using the Brilliant Wings Dies, cut a solid butterfly from Basic White card stock and a detailed butterfly from Balmy Blue card stock.  Adhere the layers together using small dabs of Liquid Glue.  Gently shape the butterfly to add some lift to the wings.  Snip a Dimensional in half and add a piece under the end of each wing.  Adhere the body of the butterfly to the art piece with Liquid Glue, then peel the paper from the Dimensionals and adhere the wings so they are raised.

Use Pear Pizzazz ink to stamp the sentiment from the Color & Contour Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Use the largest die from the Scalloped Contours Dies to trim the panel before adhering it to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  So pretty!

Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said 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 Elegantly Said Stamp Set and the Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

And here is the Sketch we’re using:

This sketch is a perfect way to showcase some of the new Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper.  All of the sheets have foil accents on one side of the paper – Gold, Copper and/or Silver.  And it’s beautiful, though difficult to capture in pictures.

Add texture to a panel of  Very Vanilla card stock with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  Use Stampin’ Seal to adhere it the front of a Basic Black card base.  Adhere the two panels of the Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper to the corresponding Basic Black card stock panels with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Adhere the larger vertical layer to the card front with Stampin’ Seal Tape.  Adhere the smaller horizontal layer to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the sentiment from the Elegantly Said stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Crop it with a die from the Ornate Frames Dies .  Turn the same die upside down on a panel of Basic Black card stock and trace the outline with a pencil.  Then use Paper Snips to cut along the lines to create a mat.

Adhere the sentiment to the mat with Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the sentiment layer to the card front with Glue.  Tie a triple loop bow with Silver Simply Elegant Trim.  Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the bow to the lower edge of the sentiment piece.  Embellish with  a silver dot from the Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials.

Stamp the floral image from the Elegantly Said stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink stamped off three times before adding the image to the card stock.  Stamp the sentiment in full strength Black.  Adhere the panel to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue and add a silver embellishment from the Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials.

Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs to You

Welcome!  Thanks for stopping by.  My project today features the Sending Hugs Stamp Set and Layering Hugs Dies, also available as  the Sending Hugs Bundle – at a 10% discount.  I wanted to share a second card I made for the color challenge earlier this week – using the same colors, but with an entirely different look.

These are the colors from the challenge (pick at least 3):All five of the colors shown above are added to the beautiful floral line drawing from the Sending Hugs stamp set using Blender Pens and ink pads.  Blender pens are like having a marker for every color of ink pad, and can look somewhat like watercolor painting.

Stamp the floral image on a panel of Basic White card stock with StazOn Jet Black ink. Using a Blender Pen, add the following colors to the image: Bumblebee Ink for the large flowers and Merry Merlot for the smaller ones.  The berries are Cinnamon Cider and the small floral sprays are Misty Moonlight.  Use Old Olive for the leaves.

Crop the art piece with the second to largest die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  Use the word die from the Layering Hugs Dies to cut the letters from Merry Merlot card stock.  Adhere the cut letters over the outlines with a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Cut a panel of Old Olive card stock using the largest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  Adhere the art piece to the Old Olive panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the layer to the front of a Merry Merlot card base.

Use Merry Merlot ink to stamp the sentiment from the Sending Hugs stamp set on a scrap of Basic White card stock.  Use the small label die from the Layering Hugs Dies to crop it.  Adhere to the card front with a Dimensional cut down to a narrow strip.  Tie a bow with 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon and adhere to the card front with a Mini Glue Dot.  Add some Genial Gems to complete.

Stamp the single stem flower image from the Sending Hugs Stamp Set in the upper left and lower right corners of a panel of Basic White card stock with StazOn Jet Black ink.  Add Merry Merlot to the flowers and Old Olive to the leaves with a Blender Pen.  Using Liquid Glue, adhere to a panel of Old Olive card stock before adhering to the inside of the card base.

You can view the card I posted earlier this week by clicking on this picture:

Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Memories & More 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 Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack, Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and Genial Gems.  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

And here is the Sketch we are using:

The Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards are great for a quick and easy card.  Just trim the cards to the size you need, find a sentiment that works for the occasion and you’re on your way!

Trim two of the larger Memories & More cards down to create the front layer and adhere with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Wrap a length of Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the layer and secure the ends on the back with tape.  Use a shorter length of ribbon to tie a knot along the right hand side.  Adhere the layer to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut the sentiment label from a small Hand-Penned Memories & More card.  (No stamping required!)  Adhere to the card front with Dimensionals.  Embellish the sentiment label with a few Pale Papaya Genial Gems – a small one in the center of each flower and a large one near the top left edge of the label.

For the inside panel, use the strip trimmed off the end of the green print Memories & More card to add some interest to the upper and lower edge.  Fussy-cut a flower from the strip trimmed off the floral print card and adhere it to the bottom right corner with Liquid Glue.  Then adhere to the inside of the card base with Glue.

Ready to send on its way!  This can be a card of hope and encouragement, or maybe even as congratulations for an accomplishment.

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!
