Stampin’ Up! Gather Together 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 Gather Together Stamp Set, Gathered Leaves Dies and Come to Gather 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 in our projects:

These colors reminded me of the deep rich tones of Fall.  And even though Fall is not “in the air” here in Georgia as yet, we know it’s coming – eventually.

To begin, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper to a panel of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper 1/4″ in from the right edge.  Then adhere to a panel of Cajun Craze card stock.  The completed layer is then adhered to the front of an Early Espresso card base using Liquid Glue

Stamp the leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set with Crumb Cake ink on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock – stamped off once first.  Then stamp the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set using Early Espresso ink over the the leaf image.  Cut out with a die from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere to a mat cut from Pretty Peacock card stock with a die the next size up.  Trim off the right end of the label to “square it up” as shown.  Wrap a length of Cajun Craze Linen Thread from the Come to Gather Ribbon Combo Pack around the end of the label three times and secure ends to the back side with tape.  Adhere the label to the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Add some Pretty Peacock and Crumb Cake branches cut with dies from the Frosted Bouquet Dies to the label and the lower left front corner of the card using dabs of Liquid Glue.  The leaf is cut from Cajun Craze card stock (spritzed lightly with water first) with a die from the Gathered Leaves Dies.  Adhere with Glue Dots.  Finish with a double bow using Cajun Craze Linen Thread and natural Linen Thread.  Add some gold Metallic Pearls and it’s done!

Add the leaf image stamped with Crumb Cake ink, stamped off once first, to the center of a panel of Crumb Cake card stock.  The sentiment is stamped with Early Espresso ink and then the panel is adhered to a Cajun Craze card stock mat before adhering to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Red Magnolia Christmas 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 Rustic Retreat Stamp Set and Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week – here’s my card:

And here is the sketch we are all using for inspiration:

I tried coloring the blooms in the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper, as I have seen a few projects with colored blooms and liked them.  Use the brush tip of a Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends marker to add color to the flower petals – so easy and such striking results!  Cut the panel to size and adhere to a Gold Foil mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The DSP is centered on the foil panel top to bottom, even with the left edge with the mat showing along the right side.  Then use Liquid Glue to adhere the completed layer to the card front centered top to bottom, even with the left edge.

Use StazOn Jet Black ink to stamp the sentiment from the Rustic Retreat stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Cut the sentiment layer with a die from the Layering Circles Dies set.  Adhere the sentiment to a circle mat of Basic Black, then adhere the layer to a Gold Foil scalloped circle mat cut with the same dies.

Flag the ends of a length of 3/8″ Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon.  Adhere to the card front arranged as shown with Mini Glue Dots.  The sentiment piece is adhered in place over the ribbon embellishment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use a die from the Magnolia Memory Dies to cut a single bloom from a panel of Magnolia Lane DSP.  Color the flower petals with a Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends marker, then adhere it to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock before adhering the panel to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home True North 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 many products in the Come Sail Away Suite which include the Sailing Home Stamp Set and coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies, Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack and the Come Sail Away 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:

My design was inspired by the challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch #335

I’m also playing along in the As You See It Challenge #207

To begin, trim a 4″ x 6″ card from the Come Sail Away Memories & More card pack down to 4″ x 5-1/2″.  Use Night of Navy ink and the Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment from the Sailing Home stamp set in the bottom right corner of the card.  Then adhere the card to the front of a Night of Navy card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut the rope image from a panel of Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.  Adhere to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Use the largest die from the Layering Circles Dies to cut the compass image from a panel of Come Sail Away DSP.  Flip the die over and use a pencil to trace around the outside edge of the die on a panel of wood grain paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP.  Use Paper Snips to cut out the circle mat.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the compass image to the wood grain mat.

Use the Smooth Sailing Dies to cut the compass needle.  The wider bottom piece is cut from a scrap of Soft Suede card stock.  The smaller detailed piece is cut from a scrap of Night of Navy card stock.  Adhere the pieces together with a few dabs of Liquid Glue.  Use the Piercing Tip in the Take Your Pick tool to make a hole through the center of the compass needle and the compass layer.  Insert a small silver brad through the compass needle, a metal ships wheel from the Sail Away Trinkets and the compass piece to secure the layers.  Adhere the completed piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Tie a knot in a length of twine from the Nature’s Twine collection and use a Glue Dot to adhere to the card front alongside a metal anchor from the Sail Away Trinkets.  The inside panel of Whisper White card stock has the same fussy-cut rope design accent to coordinate with the front of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy Sneak Peek plus 2019 Holiday Catalog Shares

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 a Sneak Peek of the Beauty & Joy Stamp Set from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  As soon as I saw this card that Jane Allmark posted earlier this week, I knew it would be a perfect project for my Inky Fingers Krew Team Meeting today.  And I was right – they loved it.

I pretty much followed the video that Jane posted on her blog HERE.

I stamped the urn with Gray Granite ink, the plant trunk and sentiment with Soft Suede ink and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink.  The flowers are Melon Mambo, same as the card stock mats.

I wrapped some Linen Thread around the art piece and tied a bow before adhering it to the card front.  A few Rhinestone Basic Jewels add a bit of sparkle.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this project:

  1. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ panel of Whisper White Thick card stock, score at 5-1/2″ and fold in half for the card front.
  2. Use Pear Pizzazz ink to stamp the leaf image repeatedly around the edge of a 3-5/8″ x 4-7/8″ panel of Whisper White card stock.
  3. Adhere the stamped panel to a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ mat of Melon Mambo card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  4. Adhere the completed layer to the card front with Liquid Glue.
  5. Use Gray Granite ink to stamp the urn on a panel of Whisper White card stock cut with the fifth from largest Stitched Rectangles Die.
  6. Stamp the truck of the plant with Soft Suede ink.
  7. Stamp the leaf image with Pear Pizzazz ink
  8. Stamp the flower 3 times with Melon Mambo ink.
  9. Adhere the stamped panel to a mat of Melon Mambo card stock cut with the fourth from largest Stitched Rectangles Die.
  10. Wrap Linen Thread around the completed art piece layer three times and tie a bow.
  11. Adhere the art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  12. Stamp the sentiment on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock with Soft Suede ink.
  13. Cut the sentiment out with a Stitched Shapes circle die.
  14. Adhere the sentiment to the card front with a Dimensional in the lower left and Liquid Glue in the upper right.
  15. Add Rhinestone Basic Jewels as shown to complete.

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

It’s that time again!  The 2019 Holiday Catalog is packed full of awesome new Designer Series Paper, pretty ribbons and great embellishments.  I have set up some Product Share options to help you have samples of as many products as possible without having to order one of everything!

Stampin’ Up! Most Wonderful Time Medley 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 a 2019 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek of the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week – here’s my card:

And here’s the sketch we are using:

The new Most Wonderful Time Product Medley has an amazing collection of coordinating products.  To start, there are 48 6×6 sheets of Designer Series Paper – 8 each of 6 double-sided designs. One side has gold foil accents.  The Medley also includes 12 Gold Foil card fronts, 11 Stamps, 6 Dies, 7 Sticker Sheets, Gold/White Tinsel Trim, and 58 Gold Faceted Stars.  So much fun in one collection!

To begin, use SNAIL to adhere a panel of the Medley Designer Series Paper to the front of a Real Red card stock card base.  Then adhere a strip of the Medley Designer Series Paper across the lower front of the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Adhere a panel of the Medley Designer Series Paper to a mat of Real Red card stock with Liquid Glue before adhering the layer to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Ink the sentiment stamp from the Most Wonderful Time stamp set with Versamark ink and stamp on a panel of Whisper White card stock, sprinkle with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and use the Heat Tool to set.  Cut it out with a die from the Layering Circles Dies.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere to a Gold Foil mat cut with a die from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

Adhere a length of Real Red 3/8″ Cotton Ribbon to the card front with Mini Glue Dots.  Unwind some of the Medley Gold/White Tinsel Trim and allow it to return to the twisted shape it prefers before cutting to length.  Adhere a bit of the tinsel over the Cotton Ribbon with Glue Dots.  Then adhere the sentiment panel to the card front with Dimensionals.  Add some of the Medley Gold Faceted Stars to a number of tree tops and one more on the sentiment panel.

The inside of the card has a panel of Whisper White card stock with a strip of the Medley Designer Series Paper adhered along the bottom edge.  I hope I’ve been able to capture the Gold Foil accents on the Designer Series Paper panels and give you a taste of how pretty and versatile the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley is.

Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence 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 Floral Essence Stamp Set and coordinating Perennial Flower Punch and Leaf Punch, the Well Said Stamp Set and Well Written Dies, plus some Subtles Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my card:

And here are the colors we are showcasing:

Love these colors together – so perfect for a floral card, which in case you haven’t noticed, is kind of my favorite theme for cards lately.  The three petal flower in the Floral Essence stamp set and coordinating Perennial Flower Punch make a sweet bloom, perfect for any occasion.

To begin, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Blushing Bride Designer Series Paper from the Subtles DSP collection to a Garden Green card stock mat.  Die cut the sentiment from Garden Green card stock with the Well Written Dies and adhere to the front layer with small dabs of Liquid Glue.  Adhere the layer to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the flowers and leaves from the Floral Essence stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock using Blushing Bride and Garden Green ink.  Use the Perennial Flower Punch and Leaf Punch to cut them out.  Layer the flowers and adhere with Liquid Glue.  Adhere the flowers to the card front with Glue.  Tuck leaves under the flowers and adhere with Glue, as well.  Die cut a couple Crushed Curry butterflies with the Well Written Dies and add them to the card front.  Embellish the butterflies with pearls and add Perennial Essence Floral Centers to the blooms to complete.

Use Garden Green ink to stamp the sentiment from the Well Said stamp set to the inside of the card.  Adhere one more Crushed Curry die cut butterfly and it’s ready for delivery.

I’ll order all the Designer Series Paper, Embellishments and Ribbons listed below, divide them up and share them with you.  I’ll place my order September 4th and will use an expedited shipping option so I should be able to have the shares cut, counted, packaged and shipped to you by September 15th.  I will have limited spaces, so don’t delay if you’re interested – place your orders early.

Here’s a picture showing how my Shares from the 2019-20 Annual Catalog were neatly packaged & labeled before I shipped them out:

Comment from a customer after she received her Annual Catalog Share order:  “I just wanted to let you know I received the shares and how much I like the way you do this.  Having labels on each one [ribbon & embellishments] really helps….. Thanks for the extra work you put into these.”
