Stampin’ Up! Waterfront Masculine Card

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

For today’s card I’m featuring the Waterfront Stamp Set.  This is a set I initially overlooked and then started seeing what everyone was creating and needed it!

It makes the “wow” factor so easy.  The images are all watercolor, but they’re stamps!

I start off with Chocolate Chip cardstock.  Next I took a pattern from the True Gentleman DSP and matted it on Very Vanilla cardstock.

Next I took a smaller panel of Very Vanilla cardstock to create my scene.  I used the Waterfront stamp set and Crumb Cake ink (mountains), Dapper Denim ink (both water images), and Tranquil Tide ink (trees).  I matted this on a panel of Tranquil Tide cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

I strung through a True Gentleman Button some Linen Thread and tied a bow.  I also stamped the sentiment from the Special Celebrations stamp set in Tranquil Tide ink.  I adhered the sentiment using Stampin Dimensionals.

For me the Waterfront Stamp Set is a MUST HAVE!  In fact it is the featured stamp for my March stamp parties!!!  You can check out all my parties on my Facebook page.

Stampin’ Up! Amazing You

Someone at my last stamp party made a mention that she loved when I goofed up during my Wednesday night Facebook Live tutorials.  It showed that I make mistakes too.

Let’s just say I hope you enjoy my card today…. 🙂

Do you see what I mean?  Look closely.

There are three words on the card and not.one.is.straight.  Ha ha ha.  I’m literally laughing as I’m typing this.

After I stamped/glued them, I thought, “Eh, they’re straight enough.”

Join me tonight at 7:30 pm EST for another Facebook Live Tutorial and let’s see if I mess up at all and how I cover it up.  We have a lot of laughs needless to say.  🙂  Watch live, leave a comment and I’ll pick a name at the end to see who will win tonight’s card.

My card today is a simple Valentine’s Day card or card of encouragement.  I start off with Real Red cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped in Memento Black ink the flower from the Amazing You Stamp Set (which is free by the way during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order) three times in the corner.

I then stamped the other words, “You” and “Are Simply” next to it in Memento Black ink.  I matted this on Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

I cut out a Real Red “Amazing” from the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies (also free during Sale-a-bratin with a qualifying order) and adhered it just below the other words.  I added a Real Red enamel heart and a few rhinestones to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Cake Soiree Celebrate Card

I am having so much fun playing with all the new Occasions Catalog goodies.

The bundle used today, the Cake Soiree Bundle, was one I received for free from my upline.  We really do have the best team.  Everyone’s so supportive and encouraging and along the way we get some prize patrol.  Talk to me, we’d love to have you join and now’s the best time!!

My card today starts off with Marina Mist cardstock.  I then matted a piece of Whisper White cardstock on some Powder Pink cardstock.

I then cut out three squares using the Layering Squares Framelits, one in Silver Foil and two in Powder Pink.  Before adhering down the bigger silver square, I tucked behind it some Whisper White Organza Ribbon…and let me tell you – this ribbon is gorgeous!

I then used the Cake Soiree Bundle (stamp set and coordinating framelits) to stamp and cut out a cake (Powder Pink ink) and various flowers and leaves (Rich Razzleberry, Berry Burst, Marina Mist, Old Olive inks).

I stamped the sentiment from the Cake Soiree Stamp Set in Versamark ink on the cake, sprinkled it with silver embossing powder, and heat embossed it using the heat tool.  You’ll notice I’m missing the little line that comes down from the sentiment.  I covered it with some Washi Tape so it wouldn’t get inked up.  I added a few Silver Enamel dots in the corner to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was (loosely) inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Sunshine & Rainbows Card

I don’t know about where you are, but it is bitter cold here in Upstate New York, so I’ll do just about anything to get some sunshine and warmth.

My card today did just that for me using the Sunshine & Rainbows Stamp Set.

I start out with Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  Next I matted a piece of Soft Sky cardstock on Whisper White cardstock.

I created my clouds and rainbow using the Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle and Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, Sweet Sugarplum, and Rich Razzleberry cardstock for the rainbow and Whisper White and vellum cardstock for the clouds.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sunshine & Rainbows Stamp Set in Berry Burst ink and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Epoxy Circles over the clouds.

Enjoy!

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

Stampin’ Up! January Customer Appreciation Cards

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop challenge is a color challenge.  Have fun hopping around and seeing what everyone’s created this week.

First off I have to say that even though it clearly says Powder Pink for the color challenge, I somehow pulled out my Blushing Bride, so my colors are a smidge off from everyone else’s.

I’m working on getting customer cards ready to go out for January orders and I really liked these colors for such.

I pulled out the Daisy Delight Bundle which I used a ton last year and then as the holidays hit rarely picked up.  Not that spring is anywhere near, it’s still fun to play with flowers and things that make you smile.

My card starts off with Blushing Bride cardstock.  I then layered (from top down) Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Gold Foil, and Basic Black cardstock.  Next I adhered across a small panel of Gold Foil.  I took a pattern from the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP and cut it in a banner to adhere over everything.

I created my daisy using the Daisy Delight Bundle and Blushing Bride and Memento Black ink.  I adhered behind it some Gold Thread and Mini Gold Sequins.  I adhered it using Stampin Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink and adhered it using Stampin Dimensionals.

I needed to make more cards than I had that specific patterned DSP for, so I decided to change up the order of layering and this time use a different pattern from the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP.

Then I thought I’d switch things up again and try something else and this time used Thick Whisper White cardstock as the base to my card and switch around the layering again.

So three cards, same layout, same design, same colors, but a bit different…
Which ones your favorite?

Stampin’ Up! 2018 Calendar

Today and tomorrow are busy days for me.

Tonight at 7:30 pm EST I’ll be giving a Facebook Live Tutorial on a Valentine’s Day treat box using the Lots to Love Box Framelits.  Afterwards I’ll pick a name out of everyone who watched live and left a comment to gift the treat box to.

Also, today and tomorrow I’m having Make & Take Stamp Parties.

These particular parties I host once a month and we have a lot of fun.  If you’re in the Upstate New York area, please check out my events and see if you can make any.  I’d love to have you join me!

At my parties I always try to have a little something to my attendees.  It varies from month to month, but being that it’s January I thought a little calendar would be cute.

A co-line of mine, Jari, made these and I hopped over to Splitcoaststampers to get all the measurements.

I started with a base of Crumb Cake cardstock.  Next I cut a panel of Soft Sky cardstock and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.  Next I cut out leaves/flowers using the Petals & More Thinlits and Pear Pizzazz and Powder Pink cardstock and adhered them down using Tombow liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I adhered this using Fast Fuse adhesive.  I added a few pearls to finish it off.

Enjoy!

DOUBLE REWARDS!!

Now through January 11th, I’m giving Double Star Rewards!  Instead of earning one star for every increment of $25 ordered, you receive TWO stars.  Once you receive 12, you earn a free $30 order from me.

Stampin’ Up! “Love” Blog Hop – Watts of Occasions

This month’s Amy’s Inkin Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Love.”  Have fun hopping around and seeing how everyone interpreted this theme.

My card today starts off with Berry Burst cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Polka Dot Basics embossing folder.  I matted this on a slightly larger Whisper White panel and adhered it to the card front.

I then layered up a pattern from the Fresh Florals DSP, a banner of Emerald Envy cardstock, and the sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Watts of Occasions stamp set and was stamped in Emerald Envy ink on Whisper White cardstock.  (I’m a sucker for a good punny sentiment.)

Next I cut out an oval using the Stitched Shapes Framelits out of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  I stamped the light bulb from the Watts of Occasions stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I cut it out using Paper Snips and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I wound around a few times some Berry Burst ribbon and tied a Linen Thread knot around the middle to hold it in place and adhered it to the card using a small piece of Tear & Tape adhesive.

Enjoy!

My card today was inspired by this week’s Fab Friday challenge and the Paper Players challenge.

My card starts off with Island Indigo cardstock on which I stamped the Hardwood stamp set in Island Indigo ink.

I took a panel of Night of Navy cardstock and stamped the leaf image from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set over it a bunch of times in Night of Navy ink.  I then matted this on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card.

Next I cut out a Whisper White label using the Pretty Label Punch.  I stamped the same leaf image from the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set in Fresh Fig Ink on the label after stamping off four times (I wanted a really muted color).  I then adhered this to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a bow in Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon and adhered it to the side of the label using Tear & Tape adhesive.  (I just love bows with long tails.  They get me every time.)  I also added a few pearls on the card front to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s TGIF Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Lots of Lavender

Are you keeping warm today?

Here in Upstate New York we’re having a high of -1 … you read that right, as in, minus one!
So to my craft room I must go to stay warm 🙂

Today’s card was featured in my Facebook Live Tutorial Wednesday night.  Every Wednesday night at 7:30 pm EST I go live giving a tutorial.  This is a great time to check out new product, new techniques, and to ask questions.  It’s a lot of fun!

Don’t forget Sale-a-bration is in full swing and to celebrate now through January 11th I’m offering DOUBLE Star Rewards!  It gets you that much closer to that free $30 order AND earns you free Sale-a-bration items along the way!

My card today starts off with Soft Sky cardstock.  I then took a panel of Emerald Envy cardstock and matted it on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

Next I used the Layering Squares Framelits to cut out the largest scalloped square from Whisper White cardstock and a slightly smaller square from Berry Burst cardstock.  I embossed the Berry Burst square using the Petal Burst embossing folder.  Next I cut a small strip of Soft Sky cardstock, cut the ends in a banner using the Triple Banner Punch, and adhered it over the card front.

I cut out a Berry Burst scalloped Square and White Shimmery cardstock square using the Layering Squares Framelits.  I stamped the flowers in Versamark in each corner of the White Shimmery cardstock, sprinkled them with white embossing powder, and heat set them with the heat tool.  I then took an Aqua Painter and Emerald Envy and Berry Burst ink pads to color over them.  I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set separately on another piece of white Shimmery cardstock and adhered it over the square.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by challenges this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments and Stamp, Ink, Paper.
