Stampin’ Up! Celebrate You for Simply Stampin’ Sunday

Welcome to Simply Stampin’ Sunday – my weekly post of  Clean And Simple projects that can be made in minutes using Stampin’ Up! products.  This week’s project showcases the Celebrate You Thinlits dies and the Swirly Bird stamp set.

I used Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana and Melon Mambo ink to create my own background layer for this bright and cheery Celebrate card.  Love the inky splat stamp from the Swirly Bird stamp set.

The new Glitter Enamel Dots add just the right amount of Sparkle and show up great against the Basic Black sentiment strip.

Add a few ink splats inside the card as well.  This card can easily be used as an invitation (easy to make multiples) as well as a Congratulations card.  Double duty!

And best of all, it is fun to make!

Here are the Simple Steps to make this project:

  1. Cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ panel of Granny Apple Green card stock, score at 4-1/4″ and fold for card base.
  2. Use the stamp from the Swirly Bird stamp set with Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana and Melon Mambo ink to add random ink splats on a 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ panel of Whisper White card stock.
  3. Adhere the stamped piece to a 3-5/8″ x 4-7/8″ panel of Basic Black card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  4. Die cut the sentiment from the Celebrate You Thinlits dies from Melon Mambo card stock.
  5. Use Glue to adhere the sentiment to a 1-1/4″ x 4-3/4″ strip of Basic Black card stock.
  6. Adhere the completed strip to the front layer with Liquid Glue.
  7. Use Glue to adhere the completed layer to the card front.
  8. Add coordinating Glitter Enamel Dots embellishments on each side of the sentiment.
  9. Stamp random ink splats to the upper left and lower right corners of a 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ panel of Whisper White card stock for the inside of the card,
  10. Adhere to a 3-5/8″ x 4-7/8″ panel of Basic Black card stock and then adhere the completed layer to the inside of the card using Liquid Glue.
  11. Done!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Promenade for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

This is the week for our monthly Joint Blog Hop.  Be sure to stop by to check out what all the talented bloggers in this Hop have shared.  We have a sketch challenge AND a color challenge and can choose to participate in either one or both – I chose both!  Here is my card for this week:

And here are the sketch and color challenges for this week:

       

My card this week showcases the large bloom in the Beautiful Promenade stamp set and die bundle.  This bundle features floral images and graphic designs along with sentiments of friendship and support.  The die set has framelits for floral images as well as thinlits for a doily, tag topper and envelope liner.  Lots of possibilities!

To begin, add texture to a panel of Petal Pink card stock with the new Subtle embossing folder.  Run it through the Big Shot once, turn the paper in the folder from vertical to horizontal and run it through again.  The result is a woven, linen look.  Mat the embossed piece by adhering it to a panel of Blackberry Bliss card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Blackberry Bliss ink to stamp the floral image on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Use Petal Pink ink to stamp the graphic filler image in the flower.  Stamp the leaf image three times with Bermuda Bay ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Die cut the stamped flower and leaf images with the framelits, plus die cut two of the other leaves in the set from Bermuda Bay card stock.

Use Blackberry Bliss ink to stamp the sentiment on a strip of Very Vanilla card stock.  Use the Banner Triple Punch to notch one end of the strip before adhering it to the front panel with Liquid Glue.  Adhere the flower to the front panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Tuck the leaves under the bloom and adhere with glue.  Tie a knot in a length of Petal Pink ribbon from the Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, trim the ends and adhere to the banner with a Glue Dot.  Embellish the flower, banner and card front with gold Metallic Pearls and Blackberry Bliss Faceted Dots gems.  Adhere the completed front panel to the Bermuda Bay card base with Dimensionals.

Use Bermuda Bay ink to stamp the leaf image in the bottom right corner of a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Adhere the panel to a Blackberry Bliss card stock mat and then adhere the layer to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.  Good to go!

AND it’s included in the Buy 3 Get 1 Free Designer Series Paper Sale this month – thru July 31st.  See below or click HERE for more info.

This sweet 3-1/2″ x 5″ note card is the perfect Thank You note and goes together quickly.  Use the Mini Pizza Box for a gift card, some chocolate or candy treats, or maybe a cookie, since it’s food safe!  Yep, two projects this week.  Missed last week because I was traveling.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this project:

  7.  Use the round die from the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies to cut a mat from Blushing Bride card stock.

Stampin’ Up! Floral Frames for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  I used the Floral Frames stamp set and the Foliage Frames Framelits Dies (available as a Bundle with a 10% savings) to create my card for today.  We have a color challenge this week and this is what I made:

Here are the colors that we’re using this week:

The Floral Frames Bundle is one of my most recent purchases and I’m so glad I chose to order it.   The images are so pretty and the dies are amazing.  Love the sentiments as well.

To begin, I used the Layered Leaves embossing folder to add dimension to a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere the embossed piece to a panel of Basic Black card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Wrap a length of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine around the layer three times and adhere the ends to the back side with tape.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the completed layer to a Lemon Lime Twist card base.

Stamp the label image from the Floral Frames stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock with Lemon Lime Twist ink.  Stamp the sentiment centered on the label with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Use a Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to carefully add black ink over the little dots on the stamped image.  Then use Paper Snips to fussy-cut the label.  Cut a mat from Lovely Lipstick card stock with the label die from the Foliage Frame Framelits Dies set.  Adhere the sentiment label to the mat with Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the label to the card front with Dimensionals.

Stamp each of the flower images from the Floral Frames stamp set a panel of Whisper White card stock using Lovely Lipstick ink.  Cut them out with the corresponding dies.  Cut five sets of leaves of each design (ten leaves total) from Lemon Lime Twist card stock with the Foliage Frame Framelits Dies.  Adhere the leaves and flowers under and over the label as shown using Liquid Glue.  Add small and medium black Faceted Dots to the flower centers.  Tie a triple loop bow with Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine and adhere it to the card front with a Glue Dot.  Adhere a Lemon Lime Twist flower button to the center of the bow with a Glue Dot and finish with one more black Faceted Dot in the center of the button.

Stamp a floral image from the Floral Frames stamp set in the lower right corner of a panel of Whisper White card stock with Lovely Lipstick ink.  Stamp the small leafy branch with Lemon Lime Twist ink as shown.  Adhere the stamped panel to a mat of Basic Black card stock using Liquid Glue and then adhere the completed layer to the inside of the card in the same manner.

Stampin’ Up! Just Breathe for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products.  Our theme this month is “Celebrate Summer”.  My framed art piece features the Colorful Seasons stamp set, High Tide stamp set and Sea of Textures stamp set and coordinating Under the Sea Framelits.  Here is what I created:

Our family just spent last week at the beach – time together that I look forward to every year.  Definitely a great way to celebrate summer!  I was inspired by a number of similar framed collages and combined some ideas to make this one my own.

I purchased a 5″ x 7″ frame at a local discount store and designed the components to fit the frame.  Begin with a panel of Pool Party card stock for the base piece.  Add a panel of Soft Sea Foam card stock.  Then begin building the separate pieces.  Stamp the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Pool Party ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere it to a Soft Suede card stock mat.

Using the Under the Sea framelits die set, cut the following pieces: the small sand dollar from Whisper White card stock, the large sand dollar and the coral from Pool Party card stock, the small sand dollar and the sea grass from Soft Sea Foam card stock.  Use a sponge dauber to add some Crumb Cake ink to the small white sand dollar for dimension and detail.  Adhere the white sand dollar and just the star centers in Soft Sea Foam and Pool Party to a panel of Soft Suede card stock.  Stamp the sea weed from the Sea of Textures stamp set with Soft Sea Foam ink multiple times on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Add the die cut sea grass and coral using dabs of glue and then adhere the piece to a panel of Soft Suede card stock.

The final component is a scene made with numerous stamps.  I used my Stamparatus (such a great tool!) to stamp the chair from the Colorful Seasons stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  First stamp the frame in Soft Suede ink, then add the canvas sling with Pool Party ink.  Then I used stamps from the High Tide stamp set.  I stamped the sand multiple times in Crumb Cake ink, stamping off each time first.  The sea grass is stamped in Soft Sea Foam ink.  I masked off the larger birds and inked the smaller three birds with Crumb Cake ink.  Then I used a Pool Party Stampin’ Write marker to draw in the water.  I followed the design of the water stamp in the set.  This piece is adhered to a panel of Pool Party card stock.

The final step is to adhere the completed pieces to the base.  Dry-fit all four pieces first to determine the final placement and then adhere with Liquid Glue.  Insert into the frame.  This will bring a smile to my face each time I see it – I hope you enjoy it, too.

Stampin’ Up! Lots of Happy Birthday for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  I used the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper and the stamp set in the Lots of Happy card kit to create my card for today.  We have a sketch challenge this week and this is what I made for it:

Here is the sketch we’re using:

The Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper has gold foil accents on one side and I chose to use three selections from the pack for today’s card.  Love how we have such great options to choose from.

To begin, adhere a panel of the DSP to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Assemble the two additional layers by adhering one panel of the DSP to a panel of Basic Black card stock and the second panel to a Gold Foil sheet.  Use glue to adhere the two completed layers to the card front.

Stamp the sentiment from the Lots of Happy card kit with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch to cut it out.  Cut a circle from Basic Black card stock with the 2″ Circle Punch and a Gold Foil mat with the Starburst Punch.  Adhere the layers together with Liquid Glue.  Use Glue Dots to adhere a length of Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon to the back of the sentiment piece then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere  to the card front.  Add a few gold sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment with small dabs of Liquid Glue.

Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut an assortment of candles from a scrap of the Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Adhere to a panel of Whisper White card stock with Liquid Glue and adhere the completed panel to the inside of the card.
