Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Butterfly Brilliance 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  Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set, the Many Messages Bundle and the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

And this is the sketch we are using this week:

The Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set and coordinating Brilliant Wings Dies are the newest release from Stampin’ Up!  They are included in the upcoming Annual Catalog launching May 4th, but are available for purchase now – how exciting!

This card features the Butterfly Bijou DSP, which is also orderable now, but only available until May 3rd, or while supplies last.  A few of the butterflies on this card are fussy-cut and added in.  Can you spot them?

Cut two panels of the DSP and adhere them each to panels of Basic White card stock.  The smaller layer is adhered to the front of the Basic Black card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The vertical layer is adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut a few butterflies in three different sizes from the DSP.  Fold them in the middle to add some dimension and adhere with a bit of Liquid Glue applied only under the body, leaving the wings lifted.  There are two added to the card front.

Stamp the sentiments from the Many Messages Stamp Set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Basic White card stock.  Cut them out with he coordinating Messages Dies.  Use the second to smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut a panel of Basic Black card stock.  Adhere the sentiment to the mat with Liquid Glue.  Loop a length of Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon and adhere to the card front with Mini Glue Dots.  Use more Glue Dots to secure the sentiment layer over the ribbon.  Add a small butterfly on the sentiment panel to complete.

Stamp the butterfly image on a panel of Basic White card stock using Just Jade ink stamped off twice.  Adhere the die cut sentiment from Many Messages over the image.  Then use Glue to adhere the panel to a mat of DSP before adhering to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Springtime Joy Easter Fun Fold Card

Springtime Joy! 

This Fun Fold Card features the Springtime Joy Stamp Set, the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper, coloring with Stampin’ Blends Markers and an Easter message, too!

The flower images are stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a panel of Basic White card stock and colored with Stampin’ Blends markers in Light & Dark Calypso Coral, Dark Daffodil Delight and Light & Dark Old Olive to match the colors in the DSP.  The butterfly is also stamped on the panel and colored with Dark Daffodil Delight and Dark Calypso Coral markers.

The lamb is stamped on a separate panel of card stock and fussy-cut after it is colored.  It is shaded with Light Gray Granite, face is Light Petal Pink and flowers are colored to match the others. Use Blending Brushes with Pear Pizzazz ink and Old Olive ink to add the grass before adhering the lamb with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The art piece on the front is adhered to a panel of Terracotta Tile card stock and then adhered on the left side to a panel of Ornate Garden Specialty DSP.  The DSP panels on each side are squares folded in half diagonally and adhered under the So Saffron folded card base.  The So Saffron card is adhered to a single panel of Old Olive card stock.

When the front panel is opened, the front of the So Saffron card is revealed.  It has a square of the DSP adhered on the diagonal with Liquid Glue.  The sentiment is stamped in Black Memento ink on a panel of Basic White card stock which is adhered to a Terracotta Tile mat before adhering to the card front.  When the card is opened, the inside scene and sentiment are revealed.

The scene on the inside of the card is colored the same as the card front.  The flowers and sentiment are stamped on the Basic White panel with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then all the images are colored with Stampin’ Blends markers and the grass is added with Blending Brushes, the same as the front.  The Easter basket and bunny are stamped on separate panels of Basic White card stock, then fussy-cut and adhered to the inside panel with Liquid Glue.  The bunny’s nose and ears have a touch of Light Petal Pink with Light Gray Granite used as shading on the rest of his body.  The basket is colored with Light & Dark Daffodil Delight markers.

Give this card a try – it was definitely fun to make.  And the recipient will think it’s fun, too!

Stampin’ Up! Hey Chick for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Bog 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 Chick Stamp Set, the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder and the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

And this is the sketch we are using this week:

The Hey Chick Stamp Set was first introduced as a SALE-a-bration item in 2017 and Stampin’ Up! brought it back this month, along with a coordinating die set.  They are not in the catalog but you can find them in the Stampin’ Up! store.  Adorable!

Use the largest die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut a panel of Basic White card stock.  Use the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to the panel.  Then adhere a strip of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper across the bottom section using Liquid Glue.  Use Stampin’ Seal to adhere the layered piece to a mat of Cherry Cobbler card stock to complete the front panel.

Stamp the fun chicken image on a panel of Basic White card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Color the bird with the following Stampin’ Blends Markers: Ivory, Bronze, Light Cherry Cobbler and Light Calypso Coral.  Use the Color Lifter as needed to soften the edges.  Crop the image with an oval die from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Adhere the art piece to a Cherry Cobbler scalloped oval mat cut with the Layering Ovals Dies.

Use the smallest scalloped rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies to crop a strip of Early Espresso card stock.  Use Cherry Cobbler ink to stamp the sentiment from the Hey Chick stamp set on a strip of Basic White card stock.  Cut it out with the smallest die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies set.  Determine the final placement of all the components, then adhere the Early Espresso scalloped rectangle to the front panel with Liquid Glue.

Wrap a length of Linen Thread across the front panel twice and tie a bow.  Then use Mini Glue Dots to adhere the sentiment strip over the thread on the mat.  The art piece is adhered to the front panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Adjust the bow as needed.  Adhere the front panel to the Early Espresso card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals

Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the fun chicken in the bottom right corner of a panel of Basic White card stock cut with the largest die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  Color the chicken with Stampin’ Blends markers, the same as the image on the card front.  Then adhere the panel to a mat of Cherry Cobbler card stock before adhering to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Thanks 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 Daisy Lane Stamp Set, the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set and the True Love Designer Series Paper.

The True Love Designer Series Paper has beautiful floral designs in black and white that remind me of a coloring book.  And coloring it is really fun!  For this card, only the leaves and the flowers centers are colored.  Quick & easy!

Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the small daisy image from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set three times on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Punch them out and layer them, offsetting the layers as you adhere with Multipurpose Liquid Glue only in the center.

The leaves from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set are stamped on Granny Apple Green card stock with black ink and cropped with the coordinating die from the Magnolia Memory Dies.  The sentiment is from the same set and cropped with a Stitched So Sweetly Die.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a panel of Daffodil Delight card stock to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score at 4-1/4″ and fold for the card base.
  2. Cut a 3-3/4″ x 5″ panel of True Love Designer Series Paper with the small daisies.
  3. Use a Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends marker to color the leaves.
  4. Color the flower centers with  Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends marker.
  5. Adhere the colored panel to a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel of Basic Black card stock using Liquid Glue.
  6. Then adhere the front panel to the Daffodil Delight card base with Glue.
  7. Stamp the small daisy image from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink three times on a panel of Basic White card stock.
  8. Use the Dark Daffodil Delight Blends marker to color the center only of one daisy.
  9. Crop the flowers with the coordinating Medium Daisy Punch.
  10. Use Liquid Glue to adhere the layers of flowers, offsetting them and gluing only in the center, ending with the colored center on top.
  11. Use Glue to adhere the flower to a 1-5/8″ square of Daffodil Delight card stock cut with a Stitched Shapes die.
  12. Stamp the small leaf from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set five times on a panel of Granny Apple Green card stock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  13. Crop the leaves with the coordinating die from the Magnolia Memory die set.
  14. Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere the leaves as shown.
  15. Cut a 3/4″ x 4″ strip of True Love DSP and Glue to the front of the card with the right end extending a bit over the DSP layer.
  16. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the square with the flower onto the card front over the left end of the strip.
  17. Stamp the sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set with Black Memento ink on a Basic White panel and crop with a Stitched So Sweetly die.
  18. Adhere the sentiment with Glue and embellish with a large Matte Black Dot.
  19. Use Black Memento ink to stamp the sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set on a 3-3/4″ x 5″ panel of Basic White card stock.
  20. Glue a thin strip of DSP just above the bottom edge, then glue the stamped panel to a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ mat of Basic Black card stock.
  21. Adhere the completed layer to the inside of the card base with Glue.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Color Challenge 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 Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set, the Hydrangea Dies and the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper from the 2021 Jan-June Mini Catalog.  We are all working with a Color Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

These are the colors we are using this week:

The beautiful Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper has all five of the colors in our challenge, so I put it to work on this card.  The blooms are fun to fussy-cut and sure look pretty on a card.

Stamp the Basic White front panel with the brush stroke stamp from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set with Rococo Rose once and then a second time without reinking.  Do the same with Old Olive ink.  Next is Seaside Spray ink and finish with Highland Heather.  This mimics a card shown on page 18 of the Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalog.

Adhere the stamped panel to a Silver Foil Sheet. Then the art piece layer is adhered to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Trim the ends of a strip of the Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Acetate at an angle and adhere to the card front with Stampin’ Seal Tape.  Use Rococo Rose ink to stamp the sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Crop it with a die from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies, then adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut a couple floral images from the Hydrangea Hill DSP and adhere them to the art piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Cut a couple branches of leaves from Old Olive card stock with a die from the Hydrangea Dies set.  Clip the leaves off the branches and tuck them under the fussy-cut blooms, adhering with Mini Glue Dots.  Embellish the card front with some Highland Heather Pastel Pearls and a small bow tied with twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.

Adhere a couple  fussy-cut floral images to a Basic White card stock panel.  Then use Liquid Glue to adhere it to a Highland Heather mat before adding it to the inside of the card.  So easy and so pretty.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Birthday for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is “Birthday”.  My project today features the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set and the coordinating Ice Cream Corner 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 card I made today features one of the patterns in the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper.  I love that it’s fun, colorful and can stand alone as the card front.  The script sentiments in the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set look handwritten – bonus!

Adhere a panel of Ice Cream Corner DSP to a mat of Blackberry Bliss card stock using Liquid Glue.  Wrap a length of Blackberry Bliss Striped Ribbon centered across the layer and secure the ends on the back side with tape.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the layer to the front of a Bermuda Bay card base.

Use Bermuda Bay ink to stamp the sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set on a strip of Basic White card stock.  The right end of the strip is cropped with the Banner Triple Punch.  Use the same punch to crop one end of a strip of Blackberry Bliss card stock.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment strip to the card stock mat and trim the left end, if needed.

The sentiment banner is adhered to the card front over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Tie a bow with the Blackberry Bliss Striped Ribbon and use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere it over the ribbon next to the sentiment.  Adhere a few sequins from the Woven Threads Sequins Assortment for some sparkle.

Use Bermuda Bay ink to stamp the sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set on a panel of Basic White card stock for the inside.  Use Paper Snips to cut an ice cream cone image from the DSP and adhere it to the inside panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then adhere the panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat and then to the inside of the card with Glue.  So easy to make and so fun to wish someone happiness on their special day!

Stampin’ Up! Snail Mail Sent With Lots of Heart 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 Lots of Heart Stamp Set, the Many Hearts Dies and the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper from the 2021 Jan-June Mini Catalog.  We are all working with a Sketch Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

This is the sketch we are using this week:

The Snail Mail Designer Series Paper definitely has a retro look, and it’s the perfect time to bring snail mail back.  Everyone loves finding happy mail in their mailbox, so lets spread some happiness!

Adhere a panel of Snail Mail DSP to a panel of Basic White card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use the Banner Triple Punch to crop the end of a 2″ wide strip of the DSP, and use Glue to adhere it to the layer along the right side.

Wrap a length of White twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack across the front of the card twice and adhere the ends on the back with tape.  Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the completed layer to the front of a Pool Party card base.

Crop a panel of Real Red card stock with the largest heart die from the Many Hearts Dies.  Then use the medium heart die to crop a heart from a panel of Basic White card stock.  Adhere the white heart over the red heart using Liquid Glue.

Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut a cute snail image from a panel of Snail Mail DSP.  Fussy cut the word balloon from the DSP as well.  Adhere them both to the heart layer using Glue.  Adhere the heart to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Add a red Resin Heart to the word bubble.  To complete, use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the triple loop bow.

Use Real Red ink to stamp the small heart from the Lots of Heart stamp set in the upper left and lower right corners of a panel of Basic White card stock.  Then stamp the sentiments with Pool Party ink at the top and bottom of the panel.  Adhere the panel to a Real Red card stock mat and then adhere the layer to the inside of the card with Glue.

Now it’s all ready to go… who will you send it to?

Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Smile 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 Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set and the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper with a bow tied with Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim.

The Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper has some great floral images that are perfect for fussy-cutting.  Why perfect?  Perfect because they have a white background which means they are very forgiving.  When you adhere them to white card stock, the edge around the image doesn’t really show.  Give it a try!

Adhere the fussy-cut image to a square panel of Basic White card stock cut with a Stitched Shapes Die.  Then adhere to a Rococo Rose mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stamp the sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White card stock with Mossy Meadow ink.  The sentiment panel is matted on a panel of Mossy Meadow card stock.

Adhere the stamped layer to the Rococo Rose card base with Liquid Glue.  The art piece is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Embellish with a bow tied with Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim.

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a panel of Rococo Rose card stock to 4-1/4″ x 11″, score at 5-1/2″ and fold for the card base.
  2. Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut an image from Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper.
  3. Cut a square from Basic White card stock using the largest square die from the Stitched Shapes Dies.
  4. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the fussy cut image to the square.
  5. Adhere the square to a 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ panel of Rococo Rose card stock.
  6. Use Mossy Meadow ink to stamp the sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set on a 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″ panel of Basic White card stock.
  7. Adhere the stamped panel to a 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ panel of Mossy Meadow card stock with Liquid Glue
  8. Adhere the sentiment layer to the front of the card base with Liquid Glue.
  9. Adhere the art piece layer to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  10. Tie a bow with Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim, adhere to the art layer with a Mini Glue Dot.
  11. Not shown: Adhere a 3-5/8″ x 4-7/8″ panel of Basic White card stock to a 3-3/4″ x 5″ Mossy Meadow mat with Glue.
  12. Complete by adhering the inside panel in the card with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Punch Party 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 Punch Party Stamp Set and the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper from the 2021 Jan-Feb SALE-a-bration Brochure.  We are all working with a Theme Challenge this week.  Here is my project:

The theme we are using this week is SALE-a-bration:

The Flower & Field Designer Series Paper in the 2021 Jan-Feb SALE-a-bration brochure has some bright floral handpainted designs on a dark background that makes them pop!  And it’s FREE with a $50 purchase.  Gotta love it!

Use the plain heart from the Heart Punch Pack to crop hearts from three different patterns.  Adhere them to scalloped hearts punched from coordinating card stock colors.  I used Basic Black, Flirty Flamingo and Real Red.

Arrange the completed hearts on a panel of Basic White card stock to determine their placement, then stamp the small heart from the Punch Party Stamp Set with Real Red ink three times on the White panel.  After the ink has dried, use the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to the panel before adhering it to a mat of Basic Black card stock with Stampin’ Seal.  The layer can then be adhered to the front of the card base.

Adhere the layered hearts to the front art piece in this manner: first the top right heart – with Liquid Glue, then the heart in the middle – also with Liquid Glue and last the one at the bottom – with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Embellish the hearts with bows tied from twine using the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack and Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack.  The bows are adhered with Mini Glue Dots.

Using the Punch Party Stamp Set, stamp the pretty heart outline image with Tuxedo Black Memento ink in the center of the Basic White panel for the inside.  Then stamp the sentiment with Real Red ink.  Add a single heart stamped image, as well.  Adhere the stamped panel to a Basic Black mat before adhering it to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.  This sentiment is perfect for many people in our lives – make someone’s heart happy!
