Stampin’ Up! Wonder of the Season 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 Wishes & Wonder Stamps & Dies Bundle,Tis the Season 6×6 Designer Series Paper and the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack – all from the Wonder of the Season Suite.  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge – here’s my project:

And here’s the sketch we are using:

The ‘Tis the Season 6×6 Designer Series Paper and Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack from the Wonder of the Season Suite offer so many patterns to mix and match.  Combining them in a project is easy and fun!

For this card, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of the ‘Tis the Season Designer Series Paper to the front of a Cherry Cobbler card base.  Cut a smaller panel of the DSP (scroll to the end of this post for the dimensions) and trim a banner end with Paper Snips.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the banner to a mat of Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Then use Paper Snips to trim a banner end in the mat.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the layered banner to the card front.

Use the largest oval die from the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut a panel of Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The Whisper White oval is cut with the Layering Ovals Dies.  Adhere the White oval to the Cherry Cobbler oval with Liquid Glue.  Use White Stampin’ Emboss Powder to add the sentiment from the Wishes & Wonder Stamp Set to a strip of Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Trim the ends of the strip with the Banners Pick A Punch.  Adhere the sentiment to the center of the oval layer with Liquid Glue.

Using the North Pole Wonder Dies, cut some large and small branches from Shaded Spruce card stock.  Add some small branches to the backs of Holly stickers from the Memories & More Card Pack before adhering them to the oval layer at each end of the sentiment banner.  Adhere the art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Tuck a few large branches under the art piece and use Liquid Glue or Mini Glue Dots to adhere in place.  The bow is tied with Gold Cord from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered with a Mini Glue Dot.  A few Red Rhinestones are added for some sparkle.

Stamp the sentiment from the Wishes & Wonder Stamp Set with Cherry Cobbler ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use Glue to adhere a strip of DSP along the left edge of the panel before adhering it to the inside of the card base.  And it’s good to go – another Christmas card ready to show, share and mail to someone special.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Encouragement Card 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 Forever Fern Stamp Set and the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper with a bow tied with Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon.

My card design is based on the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches FMS448

Pretty Peacock card stock provides the perfect base for the Forever Fern Designer Series Paper.  I love the the way Stampin’ Up! patterned paper, card stock, ink and ribbon colors coordinate.  So easy to match everything up!

Assemble the sentiment strip first – longer than needed – adhere to the DSP panel with the ends extending beyond the side of the patterned paper panel, then trim off the excess.  Always trim from the back side – it’s much easier to see where to cut.

Add a shimmery Pretty Peacock bow and a sweet Gold Glitter Enamel Dot to accent the sentiment.

A simple strip of patterned paper added to the inside panel completes the look.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a panel of Pretty Peacock card stock to 4-1/4″ x 11″, score at 5-1/2″ and fold for the card base.
  2. Stamp the sentiment from the Forever Fern Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock ink on a 5/8″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Whisper White card stock.
  3. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped strip to a 7/8″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Pretty Peacock card stock.
  4. Cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.
  5. Adhere the layered strip diagonally across the panel of the Designer Series Paper with Liquid Glue – the ends will extend beyond the sides of the panel.
  6. Use Paper Snips to trim the ends of the strip that extend beyond the sides of the panel.  Always trim from the back side, it’s much easier to see where to cut.
  7. Adhere the completed panel to the front of the card base with Liquid Glue.
  8. Tie a bow with Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon (with the Pretty Peacock side showing) and adhere to the strip with Mini Glue Dots.
  9. Add a medium size Gold Glitter Enamel Dot to the strip to accent the sentiment.
  10. Adhere a 3/4″ x 5-1/4″ strip of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper along the left side of a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of Whisper White card stock with Glue.
  11. Then use Glue to adhere the panel to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Wreath 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 Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set, the Wreath Builder Dies and some Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Theme Challenge this week – here’s my project:

Our theme is Leaves or Trees:

The Beautiful Autumn Bundle includes a stamp set with leaves, acorns and sentiments great for Fall.  They are two step stamps allowing you to stamp the outline of the image and then fill it with color.  And the bundle includes three small punches to crop two leaves and the acorn.  Check them out – lots of possibilities.

Adhere a panel of Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper to a Crumb Cake mat before adhering the layer to the front of an Early Espresso card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Cut a wreath with a die from the Wreath Builder Dies set from Garden Green card stock.  Adhere the wreath to the card from with small dabs of Liquid Glue.

Stamp a number of outline images of leaves from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set using Early Espresso, Garden Green and Cajun Craze ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  Fill the leaves with Bumblebee, Mango Melody and Calypso Coral ink.  Use the coordinating punches from the Autumn Punch Pack to cut them out.  Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere the leaves to the card front over the wreath.

Use Early Espresso ink to stamp the sentiment from the Banner Year stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Cut the sentiment out with a die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies set.  Adhere the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Add a bow tied from Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim using Mini Glue Dots to adhere.  Embellish with some Gold Metallic Pearls.

For the inside, use Early Espresso ink to stamp the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock.  Adhere a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP along the bottom edge of the panel and then adhere to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  Add a leaf adhered with a Glue Dot to complete.

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Bog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  This month our theme is “Fall Frenzy”.  My project today features the Celebration Tidings Stamp Set, the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper and the Painted Label Dies.  We have a great group of participants in our hop.  Please take time to stop by to visit each blog to see what the Inkin’ Krew Team members are sharing with you today.

This sheet of Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper features a number of the rich, deep colors of fall and pairs nicely with the pumpkin image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set.  I decided a Fun Fold would work well with my design – hope you think so too!

Use your Stamparatus to set up both stamps of the pumpkin and foliage images, ink them with Early Espresso ink and stamp on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  The images are spaced about 3/4″ apart to frame the sentiment strip.  Use Stampin’ Blends in Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry to color the image.

Use a die from the Painted Label Dies to crop the art piece.  Then place the die upside down on a panel of Pumpkin Pie card stock and trace around the outside edge with a pencil.  Use Paper Snips to cut out the traced image to create a mat for the art piece.  Adhere the art piece to the mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Early Espresso ink to stamp the sentiment on a strip of Pumpkin Pie card stock and the adhere to the art piece.

Adhere a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP to the front of the Rich Razzleberry card base with Liquid Glue.  Then adhere a strip of DSP to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock before adhering it to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  Center the art piece on the card and use Glue to adhere it to the front.  Add a triple loop bow tied with the Gold Cord from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack adhered with Mini Glue Dots and a few Gilded Gems to complete.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrating with Patterns 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 Bloom & Grow Stamp Set and the Playing With Patterns Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here are the colors we are using:

I’m also playing along with the Sunday Stamps SSC236

I turned the sketch and made my card in a horizontal orientation instead of vertical, fun!

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Playing With Patterns Designer Series Paper to the front of a Night of Navy card base.  Adhere the additional two panels of the DSP to the corresponding Night of Navy card stock mats.  The striped layer is adhered to the card base with Liquid Glue first, centered top to bottom and left to right.  Next adhere the layer with the dots to the card base, centered top to bottom and aligned on each end.

Use Night of Navy ink to stamp the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow Stamp Set in the bottom right area of a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere the stamped panel to the Night of Navy card stock mat with Liquid Glue.  Wrap two lengths of the Purple Posy ombre ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack around the layer and adhere the ends on the back with tape.  Tie a bow with the ribbon and adhere with Mini Glue Dots.  Adhere the sentiment panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Embellish with a few Playing With Patterns Resin Dots.

Add a strip of the Playing with Patterns DSP along the bottom edge of a panel of Whisper White card stock before adhering the panel to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  This card is pretty easy and goes together quickly, but looks more complicated than it is.  Have fun playing with different combinations of Designer Series Paper to achieve many different looks!

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Sympathy Card 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 Prized Peony Stamp Set, the Peony Dies and the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here is the sketch we are using:

I turned the sketch to make my card in a vertical orientation instead of horizontal.

Use the scalloped border die from the Peony Dies set to trim a strip of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere the scalloped strip along one edge of a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then use Liquid Glue to adhere the DSP panel to the front of a Petal Pink card base.

The large bloom from the Prized Peony Stamp Set is stamped with Gray Granite ink on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Color the flower with Petal Pink Light and Petal Pink Dark Stampin’ Blends markers.  The stems and leaves are colored with Granny Apple Green Light and Granny Apple Green Dark Stampin’ Blends markers.  Then crop the image with the coordinating die from the Peony Dies set.  Adhere the art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Prized Peony Stamp Set with Gray Granite Ink on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Use the Label Me Fancy Punch to cut it out.  Cut a length of Gray Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon.  Secure the ribbon in place with Mini Glue Dots.  Then adhere the sentiment label over the ribbon with Dimensionals.  Embellish with a few Elegant Faceted Gems in Petal Pink.

Using stamps from the Prized Peony Stamp Set, first stamp the small floral image on a Whisper White panel card stock using Petal Pink ink that is stamped off twice.  Then stamp the sentiment over the bloom with Gray Granite ink.  Adhere a strip of Peony Garden DSP along the bottom edge of the panel with Liquid Glue.  Then Glue the panel to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Jar Punch with Branches 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 new Jar Punch, the Birds & More Dies, the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, and one of the Greenery Embossing Folders.  I also used the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set, the Ornate Frames Dies and the Sprig Punch.

The woodgrain patterned paper from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper is the perfect background to give this card a natural look.

The Greenery embossing folder adds a little texture to the jar – looks a bit like milkglass.

The gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and the Gold Brushed Metallic card stock (available in the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog) add shine, but not too much.

The inside is blank – ready to add a personal note – with strips of woodgrain paper across the top and bottom edges.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a panel of Mossy Meadow card stock to 4-1/4″ x 11″, score at 5-1/2″ and fold for the card base.
  2. Cut a 3-3/4″ x 5″ panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and adhere it to a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel of Whisper White card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  3. Use Liquid Glue to adhere the layer to the front of the Mossy Meadow card base.
  4. Use the Greenery Embossing Folder and die cutting machine to add texture to a 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ panel of Whisper White card stock.
  5. Use the Jar Punch to crop the jar shape from the embossed panel.
  6. Use the Jar Punch to crop a second jar from a plain piece of Whisper White card stock and adhere it to the back of the embossed piece with Liquid Glue.  (This will help it maintain it’s shape when added to the card front.)
  7. Wrap a length of 1/16″ Gold Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack around the top of the jar three times and secure the ends on the back with tape.
  8. Tie a small triple loop bow with the Gold Trim and adhere to the jar front with a Mini Glue Dot.
  9. Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the jar, avoiding about 1/2″ from the top to allow space to tuck the branches under the jar.  Wait to peel the backing.
  10. Use the large branch die from the Birds & More Dies to cut a branch in three colors: Mossy Meadow card stock, Pear Pizzazz card stock and Gold Brushed Metallic card stock.
  11. Use the Sprig Punch to cut a branch from Gold Brushed Metallic card stock.
  12. Use Paper Snips to clip the branches and sprig into pieces.

Stampin’ Up! Whale of a Time Turtles 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 Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper and the Queen Anne’s Lace Stamp Set.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here are the colors we are using:

The Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper has 4 each of 12 double-sided designs of 6″x 6″ paper.  That’s 24 different designs in one pack – so many options to choose from equals so much fun!  I chose to fussy-cut some turtles from one design and add them to the underwater scene from another design.

Choose a scene from the Designer Series Paper collection and trim to size before adhering it to a panel of Just Jade card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut a couple sea turtles and adhere them to the scene with Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the completed layer to the front of a Pacific Point card base with Glue.

Use Pacific Point ink to stamp the sentiment from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Crop with the banner die from the Tasteful Labels Dies set.  Adhere the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use some Liquid Glue to adhere a few clear gems from the Flowers For Every Season Gems to the card front – they look like bubbles!

For the inside of the card, stamp the sentiment from the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set with Pacific Point ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of the Designer Series Paper along the left edge as well as another fussy-cut turtle image to the panel.  Then adhere the panel to a mat of Just Jade card stock before adding it to the inside of the card with Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  This month our theme is “Celebrate Summer”.  My project today features the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set, the Four Season Floral Stamp Set, the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper and the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  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.

One of my favorite things about summer is having time to work in my flower garden and enjoying the blooms.  So today I am Celebrating Summer with a pretty bouquet from the Jar of Flowers stamp set.

To begin, cut a panel of Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper using the largest die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the DSP to the front of a Whisper White Thick card base.  Then stamp the sunflower bouquet image from the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Mask the lower part of the bouquet and stamp the stems image.

Color the flowers and stems as shown using Stampin’ Blends.  You can see all the marker colors at the end of this post in the list of products used.  Use the third to largest die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies to crop the panel.  Wrap a length of 1/4″ Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon around the art piece, securing the ends on the back side with tape.  Adhere the art piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Four Season Floral Stamp set with Memento Black ink on a scrap of Whisper White Thick card stock and crop using the Classic Label Punch.  Trim off one end with Paper Snips before adhering to the card front with Dimensionals.  Add a bow adhered with Mini Glue Dots to complete.

Cut a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock using the largest die in the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  Stamp the flower image from the Four Season Floral Stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and color with Stampin’ Blends.  Adhere it to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  Done!

Here’s a picture of some Black-Eyed Susan’s growing in my garden.  Not sure where that name came from.  They’re also known as Rudbeckia.  I grow them for the butterflies and bees, and love that they are perennials and come back every year.

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Posies Celebration 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 new Gorgeous Posies Stamp Set, the Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper, and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here is the sketch we are using:Flowers always brighten my day and the Flowers For All Seasons Designer Series Paper has so many options to choose from!  I picked these daisies to make a card to celebrate a friends’ special day.

To begin, adhere a panel of the Designer Series Paper to a panel of Just Jade card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Glue to adhere the layer to the front of a Daffodil Delight card base.

Use Just Jade ink to stamp the sentiment from the Gorgeous Posies stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Crop the sentiment panel with a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  Cut a length of Just Jade In Color 1/4″ Ribbon and create a couple loops in it, adhering to the back of the sentiment label with Mini Glue Dots.

Adhere the sentiment label to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use small dabs of Liquid Glue to adhere a few Flowers for Every Season Gems to the label for a bit of sparkle and shine.

Fussy-cut an image from the Flowers For All Seasons DSP and adhere it in the bottom right corner of a panel of Whisper White card stock with Liquid Glue.  Adhere the panel to a mat of Just Jade card stock and then adhere the completed layer to the inside of the card with Glue.  Do you have someone in mind that would love receiving this card?
