Stampin’ Up! Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone!

I wanted to create a super clean Halloween card for today.

I start off with Basic Black cardstock.  I then took a panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and matted it on Very Vanilla cardstock.  I took a pattern from the Spooky Night DSP and cut it in a 2′ banner.

I cut down the pattern of the Spooky Night DSP with the tree and then cut out two pumpkins to adhere in the moonlight.  I matted this on Basic Black cardstock and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Seasonal Chums in Memento Black ink on Pumpkin Pie cardstock and snipped the end of it.  Lastly I added a few black rhinestones!

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons

Today’s card is a beautiful fall card featuring three-toned leaves.

My card today starts off with Fresh Fig cardstock.  I stamped the Hardwood stamp set in Fresh Fig ink over the card front.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Tangerine Tango cardstock.

To create my colorful leaves I used Fresh Fig, Tangerine Tango, and Pumpkin Pie ink and a sponge.  I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and started sponging Pumpkin Pie ink at the top.  Next I sponged Tangerine Tango ink followed by Fresh Fig ink last.

I then used the detailed leaf from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut out leaves and adhered them over the Whisper White cardstock using liquid glue.

 

Next I wrapped around a Fresh Fig bow and tied a Linen Thread bow in the center of it.  Lastly, I stamped the outline of the banner from the Number of Years stamp set in Fresh Fig ink on Tangerine Tango cardstock and cut it out using the Large Numbers Framelits.  I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Fresh Fig ink in the center of it and adhered the banner using two Stampin’ Dimensionals high.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by the challenge this week at Fab Friday.

Stampin’ Up Lemon Zest Birthday

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

I’m taking another short break from autumn and Christmas cards today (don’t worry I’ll be back at it tomorrow 🙂

I’m always in need of birthday cards and I find during this season I’m always short because I’m not making them as often.

My card today starts off with Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  I love this color paired with the Daffodil Delight – so bright and yummy!  I then stamped the lemon image from the Lemon Zest stamp set over the card front in Soft Sky ink.

Next I took a panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock and embossed it using the Seaside embossing folder.  I matted it on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card front.  I took a panel of Tempting Turquoise cardstock, stamped the sentiment from the Lemon Zest stamp set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat embossed it.  I matted this on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

Next I used the Lemon Zest stamp set and coordinating punch to create my lemons.  Ironically enough, my Daffodil Delight ink pad is in need of re-inking so it actually gave this nice gradient look to the stamped image which I really liked.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! At Home With You – Stampin Blends

I am so excited for today’s card…

I actually created this card to go with yesterday’s sketch challenge, but then realized I completely left off the banner detail.

So needless to say, it became today’s post.

But what I love about this card so much are the Stampin Blends markers!!!

I am by no means a coloring expect … In fact, I try to avoid watercoloring.  Hence why I haven’t used this stamp set much.

But the Stampin Blends make it soooooo much easier – so user friendly – and very forgiving!  Stampin’ Blends are available to order November 1st!!!

My card starts with Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I then took a panel from the Merry Little Christmas, matted it on Basic Black cardstock, and adhered it on an angle to the card front.

I stamped the images from the At Home With You stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored in the images using Stampin Blends markers.  I used Crumb Cake, Old Olive, and Cherry Cobbler markers.  For the welcome mat, I used a Basic Black write marker to color the outside and then stamped it on Whisper White cardstock.  I then inked up the Merry Christmas sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped it inside the mat.

I cut out all the images using the coordinating At Home Framelits.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Basic Black cardstock and then arranged the images around the Whisper White cardstock.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Sketch

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

I started creating a beautiful card for this challenge using the new Stampin Blends markers and then realized I missed some key details from the sketch.

Needless to say, that card will be tomorrow’s blog post, so be sure to swing by tomorrow to see it!

For today my card starts with Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I then took two panels from the Quilted Christmas DSP and matted them on some Whisper White cardstock.

I cut the end of a strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock in a banner.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Hang Your Stocking stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White cardstock and punched it out using the Pretty Label Punch.

I stamped the holly berries from the Hang Your Stocking stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink and the leaves in Garden Green ink and cut them out using the Christmas Stockings thinlits.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Baby Moon

I’ve been creating mostly Autumn and Christmas cards lately.

I thought I would take a break today.

I have a few friends expecting so I thought it was time to make a baby card.

My card today starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I took the cloud sheet from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and spread embossing paste over it.  I took a banner of Blushing Bride cardstock and using the same cloud mask sponged Craft White ink over it.

I stamped the baby from the Moon Baby stamp set in Archival Black ink on Shimmery White cardstock.  I colored her in using a Blender pen and Blushing Bride and Daffodil Delight (umbrella) ink.  I actually used the new Ivory Stampin Blend marker to color in her face and the Light Crumb Cake marker for her hair.  I then fussy cut her out.

I stamped the sentiment in Blushing Bride ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the stars around it, stamping off for a lighter shade.  I matted this on Blushing Bride cardstock and adhered the baby over it.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by this weeks The Paper Players challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Hearts Come Home

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge and Inspire. Create Challenges.

My card starts off with Basic Black cardstock which I layered with a pattern from the Merry Little Christmas DSP.  I took a panel of Old Olive cardstock and matted it on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I took another pattern from the Merry Little Christmas DSP and cut the end in a banner and adhered it over the Old Olive cardstock.  I wrapped around and tied a bow using Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine.

For the sentiment, I used the Hearts Come Home stamp set.  I first covered the “bright” in Washi Tape and inked up the “merry &” in Memento Black ink.  I pulled off the washi tape and stamped it on the cardstock.  I then covered the “merry &” in washi tape and inked up the “bright,” took off the washi tape, and stamped it on the cardstock.  I stamped the house in Memento Black ink and the trees in Old Olive ink above the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Pick a Pumpkin Blessings

Happy Monday everyone!

Today’s card combines two of my favorite stamps from the Holiday Catalog – love-love-love!

My card starts off with Pumpkin Pie cardstock which I embossed using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

I then took a pattern from the Wood Textures DSP and stamped the sentiment from the Count My Blessings stamp set in Versamark ink on it.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat embossed it using the Heat Tool.  I matted it on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I used the Pick a Pumpkin Bundle and stamped my pumpkins in Pumpkin Pie, Peekaboo Peach, and Crushed Curry ink.  I cut them out and a few vines in Copper Foil Sheet using the coordinating framelits.

Enjoy!

My card today was inspired by challenges this week at Stamp, Ink, Paper, TGIF, and Hand Stamped Sentiments.  For the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, I went right across the middle.
