Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature Father’s Day for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  This month our theme is a “Masculine” card.  My card celebrates Father’s Day and features two stamp sets – Rooted in Nature and Itty Bitty Greetings.  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.

For the art piece, use a sponge dauber to ink the large oak tree stamp with Granny Apple Green ink.  Then use another sponge dauber to add a bit of Garden Green ink for added depth and dimension.  Use the brush tip of a Soft Suede Stampin’ Write marker to color the tree trunk and trace over the branches.

Then use your breath to moisten all the inked areas and stamp on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Cut the image out with a Rectangle Stitched Framelits Die and use Liquid Glue to adhere to a Soft Suede card stock mat cut with a die the next size up.  Wrap the art piece with a length of Nature’s Twine in Crumb Cake, tie a knot and fray the ends.

For the decorative panel (hand stamped DSP) use Garden Green ink and a leaf stamp from the Rooted in Nature Stamp set to randomly add leaves on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock.  Follow by adding additional leaves inking with Granny Apple Green ink and stamping off once each time.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped panel to a mat of Soft Suede card stock, which is then adhered to the Very Vanilla Thick card base with Glue, as well.

Stamp the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and punch out with the Classic Label Punch.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the art piece to the card front.  Then adhere the sentiment label with Liquid Glue and add the copper accent Leaves Trinket using a Glue Dot to secure in place.

Inside the card, stamp a couple leaves in Garden Green ink and one in Granny Apple Green ink, all images are stamped off first.

Stampin’ Up! Free As A Bird Thanks 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 Sneak Peek of the Free As A Bird stamp set and the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper – both from the new 2019-20 Annual Catalog – available for ordering on June 4th.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here is the sketch we are using:

I love birds AND I love flowers so the Bird Ballad Suite is definitely on my favorites list of products in the new 2019-20 Annual Catalog.  Cute birds, sweet flowers, sentiments about friendship, great patterns of designer series paper for layering and fussy-cutting, trinkets, lace, laser-cut cards and label dies. Such an awesome collection of products and so easy to order with one item number (#152190) for all this goodness!

To begin, adhere a panel of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to the front of the Mossy Meadow Card stock base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Adhere a second, smaller panel of Bird Ballad DSP to the front, again using Liquid Glue.

Use your Paper Snips Scissors to fussy-cut an image of a bird on a branch with flowers from a panel of Bird Ballad DSP.  Cut a circle of Whisper White card stock using a die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits die set.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the bird image to the circle to create your art piece.

Stamp the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set on a strip of Whisper White card stock, to the right of center.  Trim the banner ends using Paper Snips.  Then adhere the banner to the art piece with Liquid Glue.  Fussy-cut a flower image from the Bird Ballad DSP and adhere to the left side of the banner with Glue.  Adhere the art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then add some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the art piece and card front for a little bit of sparkle.

Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set in the center of a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Fussy-cut one more floral image from a panel of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and adhere to the inside panel in the lower left corner using Liquid Glue.  Use Glue to adhere the completed panel to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away Sneak Peek 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 NEW Sailing Home stamp set and Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack and the RETIRING Happiness Blooms Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.  Yes, they coordinate!

The NEW Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack offers many awesome possibilities for some quick and easy masculine cards.  The pack includes 50 total double-sided cards in two sizes, 6 laser-cut sheets and 4 sticker sheets.  They coordinate with the Sail Away stamp set and the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.  I love this Suite!

Use a card from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack with a card base from the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.  The banner and sentiment are stickers included in the Card Pack.

This small note card is the perfect size for a gift card.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a 3″ x 4″ card from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack to the front of a card from the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Cards & Envelopes set.
  2. Cut a 3/4″ x 4″ strip from a 3″ x 4″ card from the Pack and adhere on the left side of the card front with Liquid Glue.
  3. Adhere a Banner sticker from the Pack to a panel of Night of Navy card stock, to serve as a mat.
  4. Use Paper Snips scissors to trim the card stock, leaving a border on the sides and lower edges.  The top edge of the card stock is trimmed even with the sticker.
  5. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the banner to the card front, even with the top edge.
  6. Adhere two stickers from the Pack for the sentiment.
  7. Use Night of Navy ink to stamp the sentiment from the Sailing Home stamp set in the upper left corner inside the card.
  8. Add a sticker of a sailboat from the Pack in the inside lower right corner.
  9. Done!  How easy is that?

Stampin’ Up! Vibrant Vases 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 Vibrant Vases and Itty Bitty Greetings stamp sets – which are both carrying over to the new Annual Catalog.  I also used the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper which will only be available until June 3rd, or while supplies last.  Get it while you can!  We are all working with a color challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here are the colors we are using:

My card layout was inspired by The Paper Players Sketch Challenge PP439:

The Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper coordinates so well with the many Stitched Die options offered by Stampin’ Up!  I will miss it when it retires next month.

To begin, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere two panels of Needlepoint Nook DSP to the front of the Sahara Sand card stock base – one vertical and one horizontal.

Emboss the vase images with White Stampin’ Emboss powder on Sahara Sand card stock before cutting them out with the coordinating Vases Builder Punch.  Use Pear Pizzazz ink to stamp the daisy image on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use Highland Heather ink to stamp color in the flower petals. Determine the placement of the vase and then cut the panel with a circle die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

Stamp the tulip bloom and leaf on a scrap of Whisper White card stock with Pear Pizzazz ink.  Add color to the flower and leaf with the coordinating stamps and Highland Heather and Pear Pizzazz ink.  Cut them out with the Vase Builder punch.  Stamp the stem for the tulip then add the flower and leaf pieces with Liquid Glue.  Use Glue to adhere the vases.

Stamp the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Cut it out with the Classic Label Punch.  Adhere it to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Adhere the completed art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Add Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the centers of the daisies and one more on the sentiment label.

Add two strips of Needlepoint Nook DSP to a panel of Whisper White card stock – one vertical and one horizontal.  Then adhere the panel to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  All done and ready to write a heartfelt note.

Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Suite Sneak Peek with the Inky Fingers Krew

We had our Inky Fingers Krew Team Meeting today.  What fun!  You can tell from the looks of the table that we were a busy Krew.  A couple of team members left before I thought to take a picture, but here we are in my studio – showing the fruits of our labor:

If you are interested in belonging to an active group, let me know – we’d love to have you join us!  Today we made bookmarks with the new 2019-2021 In-Colors.  We also made bags from retiring Designer Series Paper following the instructions on Mary Deatherage’s You Tube Video HERE.  You can see a few of the bags on the table, if you look closely.

Our final project was a 3-D Framed Art Piece using the soon-to-be-released Magnolia Lane Suite.  LOVE IT!  It will be available for order on June 3rd.  Check them out – they are all made with the same materials, but each one is a little different, as you can see.

The items from the Magnolia Lane Suite we used today are the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp set, the Magnolia Memory Dies and the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper – all items I was able to preorder as a demonstrator.  You can possibly purchase them as part of your Starter Kit if you sign up on or after May 2nd.  Contact me for more information if you’re interested.

To begin, use the Magnolia Memory Dies to cut two small and one large triple petal shape from Whisper White card stock.   Use the new (available June 3rd) Hot Air Balloon Punch to punch five balloons from Whisper White card stock.

Shape the petals using your fingers or a Bone Folder to add dimension and make them look realistic and natural.  Use a Sponge Dauber with Pineapple Punch ink to add a bit of color to the center of the bloom.  Assemble the layers by applying Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the center of each layer as you stack them.  Adhere the large petals cut with the Hot Air Balloon Punch one at a time to the back of the flower.

Cut one stamen in each size from Daffodil Delight card stock using the Magnolia Memory Dies.  Add a bit of color to the smaller one with a Bronze Stampin’ Blends marker.  Adhere them both to the center of the bloom with Liquid Glue and finish with a large Gold Faceted Gem.  Stamp the large magnolia bloom from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set with Mossy Meadow ink on Old Olive card stock.  You can also stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White card stock and color with Stampin’ Blends markers.  Use your Paper Snips Scissors to fussy-cut the leaves.  You may want to stamp the image more than once, depending on how many leaves you want to use.

Cut a panel of Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper to fit the purchased frame – in this case, 4″ x 6″.  Take off the back panel of the frame and remove the glass.  Insert the DSP panel background and reassemble the frame.  Insert a twig in the space between the frame and the back, securing in place with Glue Dots.  Adhere the bloom and leaves to the twig and/or DSP panel using Liquid Glue, Glue Dots or Stampin’ Dimensionals, whichever works best.   Each of these creations is unique, just as they are in nature.

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Blooms 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 Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper and the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Pack.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here’s the sketch we’re using:

Love using the Memories & More Cards & Envelopes with Designer Series Paper and Card Packs for a quick card that’s simple to put together.  Aren’t the stripes on the envelope flaps a fun touch?  The Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Pack has many great designs in two different card sizes (56 total) plus 4 sticker sheets.  These are all retiring on June 3rd.  Don’t miss out!

To begin, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper to the front of a large card from the Memories and More Cards & Envelopes.  Cut a couple of strips of the Happiness Blooms DSP for the banners.

Use the Banner Triple Punch to cut the banner end on the strip that’s 1-1/2″ wide.  Use Paper Snips to cut the banner end on the wide strip.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the wide banner first, aligning the top edge of the banner with the edge of the DSP panel on the card front.  Adhere the second banner over the top of the first one, again with Liquid Glue, this time aligning the top edge of the banner with the top edge of the card front.

The sentiment is cut from a card in the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Pack and adhered to a panel of Call Me Clover card stock with Liquid Glue.   Wrap a length of Pineapple Punch 1/8″ grosgrain ribbon around the sentiment layer, tie a knot and trim the ends.  Adhere the layer to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Add a couple of flower stickers and some leave from the Happiness Blooms Card Pack.  Adhere the blooms with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Embellish with some Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots – one in the center of the blue bloom and a few added in the top right corner to mimic the Designer Series Paper.

To bring some of the brightness from the front to the inside of the card, adhere a couple strips to the left and right sides with Glue.  Ready to add you special wishes with a handwritten note.
