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

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  My card today is a special one, because it’s for Amy K and today is her birthday!  She’s at the top of the list below – be sure you stop by her blog and wish her a Happy Birthday, OK?  And please be sure to visit everyone’s blog to see the great projects they are sharing with you today.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here is the sketch we are using:

I’m sure you’ll agree the How Sweet It Is Suite is perfect for a card to wish someone the Sweetest Birthday.  (Yes, that’s a lot of Sweets!)

Use the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies to cut two plain ovals from Highland Heather card stock, one plain oval from Coastal Cabana card stock and Whisper White scalloped oval mats for each one.  Cut the jars of sweets from the How Sweet It Is DSP with the coordinating Jars of Sweets Framelits Dies and adhere to the oval panels with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Adhere a panel of How Sweet It Is DSP to a Whisper White card stock mat with Liquid Glue.  Use Glue to adhere the jar accents on the left side and right side of the front panel.  Wrap a length of Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Ribbon across the front of the panel and adhere the ends to the back side with tape.  Wrap a length of Whisper White Bakers Twine over the top of the ribbon, around the panel and tie a bow on the front side.  Use Dimensionals to adhere the front panel to the Coastal Cabana card base.

The center oval is adhered to the front panel with Dimensionals, over the top of the ribbon accent.  Use White Stampin’ Emboss powder to add the sentiment from the Sweetest Thing stamp set to a panel of Highland Heather card stock.  Cut a frame for the sentiment from Coastal Cabana card stock using the Bunch of Banners Dies.  Adhere the frame to the sentiment panel and then use Paper Snips to trim around it.  Adhere the banner with a Dimensional at each end and Glue in the center over the oval.  Embellish with a couple of Glimmer Enamel Dots to complete.

Use Coastal Cabana ink to add the sentiment to a Whisper White card stock panel before adhering it to a mat of Highland Heather card stock.  Use Glue to adhere the layer to the inside of the card.  Adhere a jar of sweets cut from the DSP to the inside panel with Glue, as well.

Embellish the front of the envelope with a die cut jar of sweets and fussy-cut candies for a little more sweetness.   Yes, How Sweet It Is, indeed!  Happy Birthday, Amy!

Stampin’ Up! Berry First Frost 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 today.  My card features the First Frost stamp set and the coordinating Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies.  We are all working with a color challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here are the colors we are using:

The First Frost Stamp and Die bundle was introduced in the Holiday catalog, but it has carried over and it’s still available.  That makes me very happy.

Use Berry Burst ink to stamp the sentiment in the bottom right corner of a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Tie a double knot with some Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic Edged Ribbon and wrap it across the panel, securing ends on the back with tape.  Then adhere the panel to an Old Olive card stock mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Use Berry Burst ink to stamp the flower images on Whisper White card stock and cut out with the coordinating dies.  Use the Frosted Bouquet Framelits dies to cut out two branches from Old Olive card stock and two sprays from Crushed Curry card stock.

Play with an arrangement until you achieve the look you want, then adhere to the front panel.  I cut one of the branches in half.  The branches and sprays are adhered with Glue; the flowers are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the completed panel to the front of the Berry Burst card base.  Embellish with a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Two more stamped and die cut flowers are adhered to the Whisper White inside panel after it is stamped with the sentiment.  The panel is adhered to an Old Olive mat before using Liquid Glue to adhere to the inside of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Spring 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.  I’m ready to say Hello to Spring – how about you?  This week’s card features the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper and A Good Day stamp set from the Annual Catalog.   The hand colored little bird is sitting on a branch made with Leaf Ribbon.

The Animal Expedition DSP has some really cute designs featuring a few different kinds of animals – all of them make me smile.  This particular design with the little birds and butterflies makes me think of Spring.  And the Tranquil Textures piece makes me think of blue skies.

I love that we have Stampin’ Write markers in every current color.  It’s so easy to coordinate our colored images with the Designer Series Paper and card stock.

The leaf ribbon adds dimension and interest to the art piece.  Trim one leaf off the side and add it to the end to make a branch.

Add a length of ribbon to the inside of the card to complete.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ panel of Whisper White Thick card stock and score at 4-1/4″ for the card base.
  2. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of Tranquil Textures  Designer Series Paper to the front of the card base.
  3. Adhere a 1-3/4″ x 5″ panel of Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper to a 1-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel of Pacific Point card stock with Liquid Glue,
  4. Use Glue to adhere the completed layer to the left front of the card base.
  5. Use Jet Black StazOn ink to stamp the bird image from the A Good Day stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.
  6. Use Stampin’ Write markers to color the bird: Pacific Point, Balmy Blue, Pool Party, Blushing Bride and Daffodil Delight.
  7. Use the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch to cut out the image with the bird in the lower left area.
  8. Stamp the sentiment from the Varied Vases stamp set with Pacific Point ink in the upper right area of the circle.
  9. Cut a mat for the art piece from Pacific Point card stock with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies and adhere with Liquid Glue.
  10. Use Glue to adhere a length of Leaf Ribbon as the branch for the bird.  Carefully clip one leaf off the side and adhere it to the end of the ribbon to make a branch.
  11. Adhere the art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  12. Add a length of ribbon to the inside of the card with a dab of Liquid Glue under each leaf.  Now it’s ready for you to write a note and send it on it’s way.

Stampin’ Up! Butterflies and 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 today.  My card features the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, the Golden Afternoon stamp set and the Layered Ovals Framelits Dies.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here is the sketch we are using:

I was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge #310

Use the FREE-with-purchase Botanical Butterfly paper from the first release of Sale-A-Bration products as the base on this pretty spring card.  Color only the background with a Pool Party Dark Stampin’ Blends marker, leaving the flowers and butterflies black and white.  Love this look.  This paper is back in stock while supplies last, so get yours quick!

The DSP panel is adhered to a Petal Pink card stock mat before being adhered to the Basic Black card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Cut a strip of Silver Foil paper and trim the ends with the Triple Banner Punch before adhering to the card base.  Cut a strip of the striped design of the Botanical Butterfly DSP, trim the ends at an angle and adhere over the foil banner with Liquid Glue, as shown.

Use Jet Black StazOn ink to stamp the sentiment from the Golden Afternoon stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Cut out with the Layering Ovals Die set and mat on Coastal Cabana card stock oval cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies.

Add a number of Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back side of the sentiment and adhere loops of Silver Metallic Thread before mounting the sentiment to the card front.  Color a butterfly in the Butterfly Botanical DSP with a Pool Party Dark Blends marker and a Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends marker.  Fussy-cut and adhere to the sentiment panel.   Add some Clear Wink of Stella to the the butterfly body and the edges of the wings.  Add a Petal Pink Frosted Flower topped with a small Rhinestone to embellish.  There are also three Rhinestones on the top right corner of the card, but they are not showing up in the photos.

Use Jet Black StazOn ink to stamp a butterfly from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in the bottom right corner of a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere to a Petal Pink card stock mat before adhering to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.  Ready to send on it’s way to make someone’s day!

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Spring for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  This month our theme is “Celebrate Spring”.  My card celebrates Spring with a cute little bunny from A Good Day stamp set, All My Love Designer Series Paper, the Classic Label punch and some additional stamps and dies from the Forever Lovely Bundle.   Please take time to stop by to visit each blog to see what the participating Team members are sharing with you today.

My layout is based on the sketch challenge from Inspire.Create.Challenge 038

I had fun combining components from different sets and suites to create today’s card to celebrate Spring.  The leafy branch image from the Forever Lovely stamp set was stamped randomly on a panel of Soft Sea Foam card stock with Soft Sea Foam ink before adhering it to the Flirty Flamingo card base.  The floral print designer series paper panel from the All My Love collection is adhered to a Whisper White mat before adhering to the Soft Sea Foam panel.

Use Crumb Cake ink to stamp the bunny image from A Good Day stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock as well as on a sticky note.  Use Paper Snips to cut out the bunny on the sticky note to create a mask.  Use a sponge dauber to apply a light shading above the bunny with Balmy Blue ink.  Leave the mask in place and use Soft Sea Foam ink to stamp the grass image from the Enjoy Life stamp set beneath the bunny.  Then remove the mask and color the bunny with Crumb Cake and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends markers.

Cut out the bunny image with a circle die from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies.  Cut a frame from Whisper White card stock using a plain circle and scalloped circle together and adhere to the art piece with Liquid Glue.  Use Flirty Flamingo ink to stamp the sentiment on a panel of Whisper White and cut out with the Classic Label punch.  Die cut three leafy branches from Soft Sea Foam card stock and the little flowers from Flirty Flamingo card stock with dies from the Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies.  Adhere the label to the art piece, followed by the leafy branches and then the layered flowers.  Add a couple Pearls as shown

Stamp a few more leafy branches on the Soft Sea Foam card stock strip with Soft Sea Foam ink before adhering to a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Add the panel to the inside of the card base.  Ready to send.

Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Well Wishes 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 today.  My card features the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper, the Dandelion Wishes stamp set and the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  We are all working with a color challenge.  Here’s my card:

And here are the colors we are using:

Although blues aren’t strictly masculine colors, they did lead me to make a masculine card for this week’s blog hop.  I like the stitched design in this sheet of Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper and decided to repeat it with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits dies and the hand-drawn stitches on the sentiment panel.  All stitched up!

Use Balmy Blue ink to add the pretty image from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set to a panel of Whisper White card stock after first stamping off on a piece of scrap paper.  Then use the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Die to cut it out and adhere it to a Balmy Blue panel.

Adhere a panel of the Twinkle Twinkle DSP to a Whisper White card stock panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the stamped layer to the DSP layer with Liquid Glue.  Wrap a length of Linen Thread around the layers twice and secure the ends on the back with tape.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the completed piece to front of the Balmy Blue card base.

Use Night of Navy ink to stamp the sentiment on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Hand draw the stitch marks around the edge of the stamped panel with a Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker before adhering to a panel of Balmy Blue card stock.  Adhere to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Adhere a Linen Thread bow to a button from the True Gentleman Buttons collection and adhere to the sentiment panel with a Glue Dot.

For the panel inside the card, use Balmy Blue ink stamped off twice for the image on the Whisper White card stock.  Add the sentiment from the Healing Hugs stamp set stamped in Night of Navy ink.  Adhere to a panel of Night of Navy card stock before adhering to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Wish 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 card features the Large Letters Framelits Dies from the Annual Catalog and the Well Written Framelits Dies and How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog.  And it has NO stamping.  The die cuts say it all…

The Large Letters Dies make a big statement, so there is no stamping needed.  Love the bright and cheerful colors in the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper, too.

The colors from the DSP are repeated in the Highland Heather card base, Coastal Cabana panel and Glitter Enamel Dots embellishments.  The “flame” is punched from Sparkle Glimmer Paper with the Leaf Punch.  Then it’s trimmed and colored with a Pineapple Punch Dark Stampin’ Blends marker.

The inside of the card is finished with words die cut from Melon Mambo card stock with the Well Written Framelits Dies from the Occasions Catalog.  Boom!  Done!

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ panel of Highland Heather card stock and score at 4-1/4″ for the card base.
  2. Use the Large Letters Framelits Dies to cut the letters for the word “WISH” from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.
  3. Adhere the letters to a 2-3/8″ x 5-1/2″ panel of Coastal Cabana card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  4. Use Liquid Glue to adhere the Coastal Cabana panel to a 2-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ mat of Whisper White card stock,
  5. Adhere the completed layer to the card front with Glue.
  6. Use the Leaf Punch to punch a branch from Sparkle Glimmer Paper.
  7. Use Paper Snips to trim the stem off the top center leaf to make the flame shape.
  8. Color the flame with the Pineapple Punch Dark Stampin’ Blends marker.
  9. Use a Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere the flame above the “I” .
  10. Embellish the card front with Glimmer Enamel Dots as shown.
  11. Die cut the words “happy birthday” from Melon Mambo card stock.
  12. Adhere the words to a 3-3/8″ x 5-1/2″ panel of Whisper White card stock with small dabs of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  13. Use Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ mat of Coastal Cabana card stock before adhering it to the inside of the card base.

So join my team between January 3rd and March 31st and you’ll get the extra bonus in product and/or the Craft & Carry Tote, depending on which kit you choose!

You can see more details about being a Demonstrator as well as information about my team on my Join My Team page on my blog.  I’d love to have you join my team, we have all types of Demonstrators from those who only purchase for themselves and get the discount to those running a full-time business and everywhere in between!  We can help you no matter what your goals are with Stampin’ Up!.

Let me know if you have and questions, feel free to drop me an email at StampWithSuePrather@gmail.com any time.  I’m happy to answer anything!
