Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments 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 Peaceful Moments Stamp Set, the Painted Labels Dies and the Peaceful Poppies Elements.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here are the colors we’re using:

The Peaceful Poppies Elements pack has a collection of die-cut accents that coordinate with the Peaceful Poppies Suite.  For today’s card, I chose to use some images from the pack that were clear-embossed on watercolor paper.  It’s a quick and easy way to add your own artistic touch using your choice of colors.

Gently squeeze an Old Olive ink pad to transfer some ink to the lid.  First use an Aqua Painter to wet the leaves you want to color.  Then pick up some ink with the Aqua Painter and add it to the damp leaves.  This will allow the color to “flow” and reduce streaking.  Use the same method to add color to the flowers using Blackberry Bliss and Poppy Parade ink.  Before cleaning the brush in between color changes, gently tap it over the two Whisper White card stock panels for the card front and inside to add some spots and splats.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the Whisper White piece to a panel of Blackberry Bliss card stock.  Then adhere the layer to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Use Blackberry Bliss ink to stamp the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Cut it out with a circle die from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Cut the wreath-looking piece from Old Olive card stock with a die from the Painted Labels Dies.  Adhere the sentiment to the wreath and adhere the wreath to the card front using Liquid Glue.  Determine the layout you want for the painted leaves and flowers.  Adhere the leaves and flowers on the left and right sides with Liquid Glue.  Adhere the flower in the center with Dimensionals.   Embellish with a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Use Blackberry Bliss ink to stamp the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set on the inside panel.  Adhere it to a panel of Blackberry Bliss card stock and then to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.  Add a couple painted leaves and a flower to complete.

*** You can find a complete list of supplies for this project, including card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Time for Tags 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 Time For Tags Stamp Set, Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper and Seaside Spray Scalloped Linen Ribbon, along with a number of punches.

The Time For Tags Stamp Set is a Host set, available with a party or individual order of $150 or more.  If you join my Host Club, you can also earn it when it’s your month as the Host.  How cool is that?  Need more information?  Scroll down or click HERE.

The set has 5 tag images and 8 tag sentiments.  The Timeless Label Punch coordinates with the tag images, making it so easy to cut them out.  I love the Clean and Simple look of this card, especially with the Linen Ribbon and Crumb Cake card base.

The inside of the card is also Simple, allowing you to write your own message to the recipient for whatever the occasion may be – Birthday, Get Well, Congratulations, Graduation, New Baby or many others.  You can also make the tag by itself to add to a package or gift bag.  I hope you have time to have some fun and get a little inky today!

Here are the Simple Steps to make this card:

  1. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ panel Crumb Cake card stock and score at 5-1/2″ for card base.
  2. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel of Whisper White card stock to the front of the card base.
  3. Use the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to cut one end of a 2″ x 4-1/4″ panel of Seaside Spray card stock.
  4. Cut the other end of the tag with the Banner Triple Punch.
  5. Use the Starburst Punch to cut out a circle from a panel of Come Sail Away DSP.
  6. Adhere the Starburst circle to the Seaside Spray tag with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  7. Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the image from the Time For Tags Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.
  8. Use Stampin’ Blends to color the image as follows: Seaside Spray Light and Dark for the bird, Flirty Flamingo Dark for the heart, Crumb Cake Dark for the branch, Granny Apple Green Light for the leaves and Pumpkin Pie Light for the beak and legs.
  9. Use the Timeless Label Punch to cut out the colored image.
  10. Adhere the colored image to the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  11. Cut a 4″ length of Seaside Spray Scalloped Linen Ribbon and insert through the top of the tag.
  12. Cut a 12″ length of Whisper White Baker’s Twine and wrap it around the Linen ribbon, tying a knot and bow to secure it in place.
  13. Adhere the completed tag to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  14. Use Liquid Glue to adhere a 3/4″ x 3-7/8″ strip of Come Sail Away DSP along the bottom edge of a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel of Whisper White card stock.
  15. Adhere the completed panel to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Layered With Kindness 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 Layered With Kindness Stamp Set, the coordinating Label Me Lovely Punch and Label Me Fancy Punch and the Flowering  Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration second release We are all working with a sketch challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here is the sketch we are using:

I used the new Flowering Foils Specialty DSP from the Sale-A-Bration 2nd release on my card today.  And because it’s Foil, it’s very pretty and shiny and very, very hard to capture in pictures.  This paper has a white background and foil flowers in silver and rose gold.  It’s a great background for the front of this card.

To begin, adhere a panel of the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP to a Petal Pink card stock panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then use Glue to adhere the layer to the front of a Smoky Slate card base.  Use Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder to add the sentiment label  from the Layered with Kindness stamp set twice – once on a panel of Smoky Slate card stock and again on a panel of Whisper White card stock.

Use the Label Me Lovely Punch to cut out the Smoky Slate label and the Label Me Fancy Punch to cut out the Whisper White label.  Layer the labels and adhere with Liquid Glue.  Add a length of Petal Pink Metallic Edge Ribbon to the card front, looping as shown.  Adhere the sentiment label over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use a die from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies to cut two leaves from a Champagne Foil sheet.  Tuck them under the label, as shown, adhering with Liquid Glue.  Use Paper Snips to fussy-cut a couple flowers front the DSP and adhere to sentiment.  Then embellish with a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Adhere a couple more fussy-cut flowers to a panel of Whisper White card stock with Liquid Glue.  Then use Glue to adhere the panel to a mat of Petal Pink card stock and then to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Spring / Easter Baskets 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  project today features the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.  It’s currently one of my favorites, because of the pretty floral designs.  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.

When I think of celebrating Spring, I think of Easter.  I found these cute little baskets made from Designer Series Paper on Pinterest and had to give them a try.  They are so easy!  I wanted to share them with you because I think you’ll love them as much as I do.  Each basket is made from a 6″ x 6″ panel of DSP.

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A length of Scalloped Linen Ribbon forms the handle of this basket – but you could also use a 1/2″ wide strip of card stock.  Staple the handle to the outside of the basket to secure.  The leaves are cut with the Sprig punch and adhered to a 1-3/8″ Scallop Circle.  Then adhere the scalloped circle with the leaves over the end of the ribbon with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Use the Small Bloom Punch to cut flowers from the Pleased As Punch DSP.  The flower is then adhered to a 1-1/8″ scallop circle, which is adhered over the ends of the leaves – all with Liquid Glue.

As mentioned, there are a number of samples of this basket on Pinterest and some have video tutorials.  Basically you score a 6″ x 6″ panel of DSP at 2″ and 4″, turn the paper 90 degrees and score again at 2″ and 4″.  Fold along the score lines.  Clip the paper as shown.  Then fold the ends in and match up the points at the top and adhere with Liquid Glue

Have fun making baskets!  I think this paper is really pretty.   Do you have a favorite?

Stampin’ Up! Tags In Bloom 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 for this challenge.  My project today features the NEW Tags in Bloom Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set and the Designer Series Paper from the Botanical Prints Product Medley.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here are the colors we are following this week:

I’m also participating in the CAS(E) this Sketch #361 Challenge:

I had fun with this card.  The DSP under the sentiment tag is from the Botanical Prints collection – originally black & white – which I hand-colored with Blends.  I LOVE to color!

Begin by using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to a panel of Whisper White card stock and then adhere it to a panel of Basic Black card stock as shown.  Adhere a strip of Bermuda Bay DSP to the Basic Black mat, as well.  I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue for both.  Color the panel of Botanical Prints DSP with the following Blends Markers – Light Bermuda Bay, Light Granny Apple Green and Light & Dark Lovely Lipstick.  Then adhere the colored panel to a mat of Basic Black card stock.  The layer is then adhered to the front panel about 1″ up from the bottom using Liquid Glue.  Use Glue to adhere the completed layered panel to the front of a Lovely Lipstick card base.

Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the label on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Once it dries thoroughly, color the flowers with Blends.  Use Light & Dark Lovely Lipstick for the flower petals, Light and Dark Granny Apple Green for the leaves and Light & Dark Bermuda Bay for the flower center.  I also used the Light Bermuda Bay marker to add a bit of color to the label inside the black outline.

Use you Paper Snips to cut out the stamped image.  Then stamp the sentiment from the Tags in Bloom stamp set with Bermuda Bay ink on a separate panel of Whisper White card stock and cut it out with the coordinating Label Me Lovely Punch.  Adhere the sentiment to colored label with Liquid Glue.  Adhere the completed label to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Add some Basic Rhinestones and Pearls embellishments and a bow tied with Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding.

Stamp the small flower and leaf from the Tags in Bloom stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock for the inside of the card.  Color with Blends Markers.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the inside panel to a mat of Basic Black card stock before adhering to the inside of the card.  The sentiment is generic – what would YOU use it for?  Birthday, Retirement, Congratulations or a different celebration?

Stampin’ Up! Best Dressed Shoes 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 for this challenge.  My project today features the Dressed to Impress Bundle and the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper .  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here’s the sketch we are following this week:

Are you a shoe collector?  I used to be, not so much anymore.  But aren’t these cute shoes so much fun to use on a card?  This card can be used for a number of different occasions – or even just a note.

This card is pretty simple.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Best Dressed Designer Series Paper to a panel of Pretty Peacock card stock.  The panels are the same size so you need to adhere them offset a bit, so the card stock shows a bit along each side.  Adhere the layer to the front of a Blushing Bride card base.  Stamp the sentiment on a panel of Whisper White card stock with Pretty Peacock ink.  Use a label die from the Dressed to Impress Die set to cut it out.

Adhere the label to a panel of Pretty Peacock card stock and use your Paper Snips to trim around the panel to create a mat for the sentiment.  Adhere the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Embellish the label with a pink sequin from the Iridescent Sequin Collection and a couple gems from the Pretty Peacock Rhinestones.  Add some sparkle to a few select shoes with a Clear Wink of Stella Brush.

Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the shoe from the Dressed to Impress stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use Stampin’ Blends to color the shoe.  Adhere the panel to a mat of Pretty Peacock card stock in the same manner as the card front.  Then adhere the layer to the inside of the card.   Use the Clear Wink of Stella Brush to add sparkle to the shoe.  And you’re done!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms 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 for this challenge.  My project today features the Forever Blossoms Bundle with a sentiment cut with the Thank You die.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here are the colors we’re using this week:

My card today is based on a layout I found on Pinterest designed by Dena Rekow.  I love the contrast of the bright colors with the black and white.

To begin, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (a FREE Sale-A-Bration item) to a mat of Basic Black card stock.  Then adhere the layer to the front of a Lovely Lipstick card base with Liquid Glue.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Whisper White card stock to a mat of Basic Black card stock.  Wrap a length of Petal Pink Metallic Edge Ribbon across the bottom of the panel and adhere the ends to the back side with tape.

Use the Thank You Die to cut the sentiment from Basic Black card stock and adhere it to the layer with Liquid Glue, centered top to bottom and left to right – it overlaps the ribbon just a bit.  Adhere the sentiment panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Stamp four of the single cherry blossoms from the Forever Blossoms stamp set with Lovely Lipstick ink on Whisper White card stock.  Use a sponge dauber with Petal Pink ink to add some color to the blossoms before cutting them out with the coordinating die in the Cherry Blossoms die set.

Use Mint Macaron ink to stamp three single leaves and three double leaves from the Forever Blossoms stamp set on Whisper White card stock.  Cut them out with the coordinating dies from the Cherry Blossoms die set.  Adhere the leaves and blossoms to the card front – sliding the leaves under the blossoms a bit.  Two of the blossoms are adhered with a Stampin’ Dimensional, the rest of the blossoms and leaves are adhered with Glue.  Embellish with some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and finish off with a bow adhered with Mini Glue Dots.

Use Mint Macaron ink to stamp a set of leaves in the lower right corner of a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Stamp a cherry blossom on a scrap of Whisper White and cut it out with the die before adhering it with Glue.  Adhere the panel to a mat of Basic Black card stock before gluing it to the inside of the card.  Ready for delivery!

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Friendship 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 Friendship Card features the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder and a sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set – all part of the Tropical Oasis Suite.

The Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder adds just the right amount of texture to this card front, and it’s the perfect background for the image fussy-cut from a Memories & More Tropical Oasis card.

The sentiment banner is trimmed by hand and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals just above the wrapped Linen Thread.  A triple loop bow finishes it off.

Stamp a few leaves from the Timeless Tropical stamp set on the inside panel to complete.  Easy-peasy.

Here are the Simple Steps to make these cards:

  1. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ panel of Soft Suede card stock and score at 5-1/2″ for card base.
  2. Use the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ panel of Grapefruit Grove card stock.
  3. Then square the panel up by cutting it down to finished size of  3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″.
  4. Use SNAIL to adhere the panel to a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.
  5. Use Paper Snips to fussy cut an image from the Tropical Oasis Memories & More card pack.
  6. Adhere the image to the embossed layer with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  7. Wrap a length of Linen Thread around the front layer three times, securing the ends on the back side with tape.
  8. Use Old Olive ink to stamp the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.
  9. Trim the sentiment banner to size using your Paper Trimmer.  Trim the ends of the banner with Paper Snips.
  10. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment banner to the front panel just above the wrapped thread.
  11. Tie a triple loop bow from Linen Thread and use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere.
  12. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the completed panel to the front of the card base.
  13. Use Old Olive ink to stamp the leaf image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set on a 4″ x 5-1/2″ panel of Whisper White card stock.
  14. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped panel to the inside of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts 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 for this challenge.  My project today features the new Nature’s Thoughts Dies with a sentiment and images from the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week – here’s my project:

And here is the sketch we are all using:

To begin, use the Subtle embossing folder to add texture to a panel of Old Olive card stock. Then trim it down to square it up.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere it to a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Then use Glue to adhere the layer to the front of a Gray Granite card base.

Use Pear Pizzazz ink to stamp the fern image a number of times on a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Stamp two or three times before re-inking.  Then use the rectangle die from the Nature’s Thoughts Die Set to trim the panel to size.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the die cut art piece to the card front.  Use Old Olive ink to stamp the sentiment from the Positive Thought stamp set on a panel of Gray Granite card stock.  Then crop the sentiment with a die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

Adhere the sentiment to the art piece with Liquid Glue and add a Dimensional under the end extending over the base.  The flower is stamped with Rococo Rose ink on Whisper White thick card stock.  The butterfly is inked using sponge daubers – first all over with Seaside Spray and then with Gray Granite only in the center – and stamped on Whisper White Thick card stock.  (Don’t clean the stamp just yet).

Die cut the flower and butterfly with the coordinating dies from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  Shape the butterfly’s wings a bit using a bone folder, apply Glue to the body only and adhere it to the art piece.  Apply Glue to the center of the flower and adhere.  Die cut leaves from Old Olive card stock with dies from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  Slide them under the edges of the flower and adhere with Glue.

Stamp the fern image with Pear Pizzazz ink on the inside panel of Whisper White card stock – stamping three times without re-inking.  Use your breath to moisten the ink remaining on the butterfly and stamp it on the inside panel, as well.  Adhere the panel to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.
