Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars Congratulations Card

Today’s card is pretty simple…but the stars are SO MUCH FUN!

They’re in the Holiday Catalog and shown primarily used for holiday stamping, but I think they’re perfect for all occasion cards – the possibilities are endless!

My card starts off with Blackberry Bliss cardstock and then I adhered a Whisper White panel over it.

I then used the Stitched Stars Dies to cut out stars from Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Pretty Peacock, and Mint Macaron cardstock.  I also used the smallest star to cut out negative stars to let the Blackberry Bliss show through.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Delightful Day Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock ink.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Fab Friday Challenges.

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Christmas Card

I hope you had a lovely weekend.

It’s really starting to feel like fall here in Upstate New York and I LOVE it!!!

It just puts me in the stamping mood, so I was busy this weekend crafting.

My card starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I then stamped the Birch Stamp Set in Crumb Cake ink on Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Soft Suede cardstock.

Next I adhered down a panel of Soft Suede cardstock and cut out boughs from Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Beautiful Boughs Dies.

I stamped the pinecones from the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink and cut them out with the same dies.  I added a Linen Thread bow over the one pinecone.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos Halloween Card

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is Halloween Fun.  Enjoy hopping around all the blogs to see what everyone created!

As I sat down to create today’s card, I realized I didn’t get any new stamps specifically for Halloween.  So I pulled out the Harvest Hellos Bundle and created a jack-o-lantern, which although doesn’t scream Halloween, are still carved for the occasion.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then adhered a Pumpkin Pie pattern from the Regals Designer Series Paper to the right.

Next I created the pumpkin first by stamping the pumpkin image from the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I colored it in using the Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the face over it in Memento Black ink and cut it out with the Apple Builder Punch.

I stamped the curls in Soft Suede ink.  On a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the leaves in Mossy Meadow ink and colored them in with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the stem in Soft Suede ink and colored it in using Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the leaves out using Paper Snips.

I stamped the sentiment from the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Lots of Fussy Cutting Birthday Card

Out of all the new Designer Series Paper from the 2019 Holiday Catalog, I think my favorite pattern comes from the Come to Gather DSP…

…the beautiful wood grain pattern.

So I let it take front and center on my card today with some fussy cutting from the Bird Ballad DSP.

Today’s card is part of the new challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  It’s a fun sketch, so be sure to play along!

My card starts off with Petal Pink cardstock which I covered with the wood grain pattern from the Come to Gather DSP and I used the Stitched Nested Labels Dies to cut out a Petal Pink banner.

I took the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and fussy cut out one of the bird images, as well as three floral images to adhere next to it.

**The great thing about this paper…it’s included in our Buy 3, Get 1 Free Select Designer Series Paper sale right now!!!  More details below.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Pool Party ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Fall Card

I usually have a lot of layers and matted cardstock on my cards, but both today and last Thursday I’ve kept things more simple…

and I really like how they came out!

Today’s card starts off with Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I then took the Swirly Frames Stamp Set and stamped the circle twice in Cajun Craze ink.

I used the new Gather Together Bundle to create my leaf.  I first stamped it in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and then used Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers to color it in.

I used the Seasonal Layers Dies and Mango Melody and Cajun Craze cardstock to cut out two leaves.  I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together Stamp Set in Memento Black ink in the corner.

Lastly I wound some Cajun Craze Linen Thread to add over the leaf.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature Birthday Card

If you’re ever having a hard time putting colors together for a card, my go-to is to look at colors in Designer Series Paper.

On the back of all the Designer Series Paper, Stampin’ Up! always makes note of the coordinating colors in the pack.  The inspiration for my card today came from retired Designer Series Paper from last year.

My card starts off with Blackberry Bliss cardstock which I embossed using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock  and stamped the leaves from the Rooted in Nature stamp set in Blackberry Bliss and Mint Macaron ink.

I used the Nature’s Roots Dies and Mint Macaron to cut and emboss two leaves.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! NEW Merry Moose Bundle

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!!

My card today is a fairly simple one, but I think the Merry Moose stamp set is so sweet and perfect for a clean design.

My card starts off with Pretty Peacock cardstock.  I stamped the trees from the Merry Moose Stamp Set on it in Pretty Peacock ink.

Next I wrapped some Cajun Craze ribbon around the base of the card in a bow.  I stamped the Buffalo Check Stamp Set in Cajun Craze ink on Whisper White cardstock, trimmed it down, and adhered it over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Early Espresso cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Lastly I stamped the moose from the Merry Moose Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and cut it out using the Moose Punch.
