Stampin’ Up! Hey Sports Fan Play Ball 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 Hey Sports Fan Designer Series Paper.  We are working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And here is the sketch we’re using:

The Hey Sports Fan Designer Series Paper has many great baseball themed patterns.  With practices and games starting back this month, it’s perfect to cheer someone on!

To make this card, begin by adhering a panel of the DSP with the woodgrain pattern to the front of a Night of Navy card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Next adhere a panel of the Hey Sports Fan DSP to a mat of Poppy Parade card stock.  Wrap a length of Navy twine from the Fan Baker’s Twine combo pack around the layer three times, securing the ends on the back with tape.  Add a faux knot created with additional twine.  Adhere the layer to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut an image from the Hey Sports Fan DSP.  Adhere a small piece of Very Vanilla card stock to the back of the image with Glue, to add strength.  Then adhere to the card front using Dimensionals – single over the layer and stacked over the card front.  Complete with a few navy Resin Star Embellishments.

Fussy-cut a banner image from the DSP with Paper Snips and adhere to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Adhere to a mat of Poppy Parade card stock before adhering to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.  And there you have it – a great card for any ball player or fan.  The Your Biggest Fan Bundle has coordinating images and dies, too!  Be sure to check them out.

Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered Birthday Wishes for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is “Birthday”.  My card today features the Artfully Layered Stamp Set, Tropical Layers Dies and the coordinating Artfully Composed Designer Series Paper.  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 Inkin’ Krew Team members are sharing with you today.

The Artfully Composed Designer Series Paper has some designs that are perfect for a masculine birthday card. To create the card front, cut two rectangular panels of DSP the exact same size, stack them one on top of the other and cut through both layers at once on the diagonal.  They will fit together perfectly.

Adhere the triangular panels to the front of a Crumb Cake card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use a die from the Tropical Layers Dies to cut two leaves from Pear Pizzazz card stock.

Stamp the sentiment from the Artfully Layered stamp set on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock with Evening Evergreen ink.  Crop the sentiment with a label die from the Tasteful Layers Dies.  Determine the placement of the leaves and sentiment before you start adhering them.

Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere the leaves, making sure the dots will be hidden under the sentiment.  Adhere the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Embellish with a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to complete.

Use Evening Evergreen ink to add a leaf image from the Artfully Layered stamp set to the upper right corner of a panel of Basic White card stock.  Adhere the panel to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  It’s pretty simple, a bit artsy and defintely earthy, embracing nature.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Rain Boots 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 Flowering Rain Boots Bundle and the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper.  We are working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And here is the Sketch we are using:

The tulips in the Flowering Rain Boots Stamp Set coordinate with the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper beautifully.  This card came together quickly and easily, allowing the DSP to take the lead.  The tulips and leaves from the Flowering Rain Boots Stamp Set are stamped in Poppy Parade and Old Olive.  *I carefully trimmed the stamps – separating two tulips and their leaves from the left side – in a manner that they can be put back together on a block for next time.

After stamping them on Basic White card stock, use a Blender Pen to add some color to the areas that are white.  Add some Pear Pizzazz to the leaves and lightly add some Poppy Parade to the flowers.  Use the coordinating dies from the Rain Boots Dies to crop the images.  Stamp the sentiment from the Flowering Rain Boots Stamp Set with Old Olive ink in the upper right corner of a panel of Basic White card stock.

Use the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder to add textured to the stamped panel.  Then use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to mat with a panel of Pool Party card stock.  Adhere the leaves and tulips to the lower left side of the panel with Mini Glue Dots.

Use Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper to the front of a Basic White Thick card base.  Wrap a length of white twine twice around the front of the card and tie a bow on the right side.  Adhere the art piece panel to the card front over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Add a few Brushed Brass Butterflies to complete.

The inside of this card is blank.  Still deciding how I will use it – Birthday? Retirement? Encouragement? Graduation?  Or just a note?  It’s ready to send, so that’s the good thing.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug 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 this week.  My project today features the Hello Ladybug Stamp Set, Ladybug Builder Punch and the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper.  It also uses the Pansy Patch Stamp Set and Tailor Made Tag Dies.  We are working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And here is the Sketch we are using:This simple sketch leaves a lot of room for creativity.  The Hello Ladybug Stamp Set and coordinating Ladybug Builder Punch – (also available as the Hello Ladybug Bundle at 10% off) – has been calling to me.  It made it so easy to add color and fun to the card front.

Start by adhering a panel of the black and white check pattern from the Pattern Party DSP to a panel of Real Red card stock.  Then adhere the layer to the front of the Basic Black card base, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for both.

Stamp the Ladybug body on Basic White Thick card stock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Use Real Red ink to stamp the wings on Basic White card stock and more Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the spots on the wings.  Use the Ladybug Builder Punch to crop the bodies and wings.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the wings to the bodies.  Make four ladybugs – three for the front and one for the inside.

Use Granny Apple Green ink to stamp the leaf on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Trim around the leaf with Paper Snips.  Stamp the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set with Black ink on a panel of Real Red card stock.  Crop with a die from the Tailor Made Tags Dies.

Adhere the leaf and sentiment to the card front with Liquid Glue.    Adhere the ladybugs with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Complete with a triple loop bow tied with the black & white trim from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack adhered with a Mini Glue Dot.

Use Black ink to stamp the inside sentiment from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in the center of the Basic White panel.  Adhere the panel to a Real Red mat before adhering to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  Adhere a ladybug to the bottom right corner with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Flowing Flowers 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 Flowing Flowers Stamp Set and the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper now available for ordering from the January–June 2022 Mini Catalog.  We are working with a Color Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And here are the colors we’re using (pick at least 3):

Today’s card features four of the five colors in the challenge.  The Flowing Flowers Stamp Set has DISTINKTIVE style images designed to produce images with shading and dimension.  Add ink to the large bloom with a Petal Pink Stampin’ Write marker.  Use sponge daubers to add color to the Highland Heather splats, Granny Apple Green leaves and some Real Red in the center of the bloom.

Use a scalloped rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies to crop the image.  Adhere it to a panel of Granny Apple Green card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper to the front of a Basic White Thick card base.  Then adhere the art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, about 1/2″ down from the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Wrap a length of Highland Heather 1/2″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the front of the card base approx 3/4″ up from the bottom and secure the ends with Mini Glue Dots to the card front – where the seam will be covered by the sentiment label.

Stamp the sentiment from the Flowing Flowers Stamp Set with Highland Heather ink on a panel of Basic White Thick card stock.  Crop the sentiment with a label die from the Ornate Frames Dies.  Adhere the sentiment label over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Tie a bow with the ribbon and adhere with Mini Glue Dots.  Add a few Polished Dots to the art piece to complete.

For the inside, use Highland Heather ink to stamp the sentiment from the Flowing Flowers stamp set in the lower right corner of a panel of Basic White card stock.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Talk Valentine 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 Flowering Tulips Stamp Set and the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper now available for ordering from the January–June 2022 Mini Catalog.  We are working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And here is the sketch we are using:

The Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper has plenty of hearts and sweet graphic designs perfect for Valentines Day.  I added a panel to the front of the card base and fussy cut a few images of candies for the inside.

Use the Dotty Hearts embossing folder to add texture to a panel of Basic White card stock.  Use a Blending brush to lightly add some color from a Real Red ink pad to highlight the texture.  Then adhere the panel to a mat cut from Real Red card stock with a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The layer is adhered to the card front with Dimensionals.

The sentiment from the Flowering Tulips stamp set is added to a panel of Real Red card stock with White embossing powder.  Crop the sentiment with a label die from the Potted Succulents dies.  Adhere a length of ribbon from the Playful Pets trim combo to the back of the label with Mini Glue Dots.  Then adhere the sentiment to the card front with Dimensionals.

Fussy cut a few candy images from the Sweet Talk DSP with paper snips, then adhere to the Basic White panel on the inside of the card.  Sweet for sure!

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips Valentine 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 a Sneak Peek of the NEW Flowering Tulips Stamp Set, Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder & Dies and the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper from the upcoming January–June 2022 Mini Catalog.  We are working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

This week our Theme is Fun Fold:

The Fun Fold I am featuring today is called a Book Fold or a Book Binding Fold.  It’s quite simple and yet still makes the card special and fun!  The fold is on the left side and the first inch of the front is adhered to the back, with a second fold to reveal the inside.

The back of the card 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Adhere a 7/8″ wide strip of the Sweet Talk DSP to the 1″ wide area between the folds on the left front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the larger panel of the Sweet Talk DSP to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Cut two lengths of Real Red Double Stitched Satin Ribbon and tie them together with a double knot.  Wrap the ribbon around the 1″ wide area and secure the ends of the ribbon on the inside with tape.  Then use Stampin’ Seal Tape to permanently adhere that section of the front of the card to the back of the card, with the ribbon ends sandwiched in between.

The sentiment from the Flowering Tulips stamp set is embossed on a panel of Real Red card stock and then cropped with a die from the Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder & Dies set.  Adhere it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Liquid Glue to adhere strips of the Sweet Talk DSP along each side of a panel of Basic White card stock before adhering it to the inside of the card.  Use Real Red ink to stamp the three little hearts from the Turtle Friends stamp set in the upper right corner.  Done!

Stampin’ Up! Flowing Flowers 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 a Sneak Peek of the NEW Flowing Flowers Stamp Set, Brushed Brass Butterflies from the upcoming January – June 2022 Mini Catalog and the FREE with $50 purchase Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper from the Jan 4-Feb 28 SALE-a-bration Brochure.  We are working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And this is the Sketch we are using:Use Very Vanilla Thick card stock to make a notecard size card base, or use one from the ready to go Very Vanilla Note Cards and Envelopes pack.  Adhere a panel of the new Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper to the front of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is from the new Flowing Flowers Stamp Set, stamped in Mossy Meadow ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Crop with a plain circle die from the Layering Circles Dies.  Use a scalloped circle die the next size up to cut the Flirty Flamingo mat for the sentiment.

Adhere the sentiment piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Embellish with a large and small butterfly from the new Brushed Brass Butterflies embellishments. The inside is blank, so no need to show that.  😉

This card is quick & easy which is great if you need to have multiples ready to send out – like I do in a couple weeks.
