Stampin’ Up! Petal Palette

In my Facebook Live tutorial Wednesday night, I shared a thank you card using the NEW Petal Palette Bundle.

If this set isn’t on your wish list for the Occasions Catalog – it needs to be!  It’s a great mixture of beautiful images and sweet sentiments!

For a more inside look at how I made this card and some cute pictures of my (soon to be) 8-year-old copying me check out my Instagram page.

My card starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock on which I stamped the rose image from the Petal Palette stamp set multiple times in Memento Black. ink

I took the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out a circle from the rose stamped paper.  I matted the cardstock with the hole in it on Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I then used Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blend Markers to color the circle in and matted it on a Basic Black scalloped circle.  I cut out a piece of Burlap Ribbon and piece of Mini Gold Sequin to tuck behind the scalloped circle.  I adhered all this down over the hole using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on a thin panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat embossed it.  I stamped the chickadee image on Whisper White cardstock in Memento Black ink.  I colored it in using the Bronze and Ivory Stampin Blend Markers and cut it out using the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits.  I adhered him down using Stampin Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Thankful Thoughts

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

I started out with some Thick Whisper White cardstock on which I adhered a pattern from the Year of Cheer DSP.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set in Versamark ink, using the Washi Tape technique to separate the sentiment out.  I sprinkled it with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool.  I matted this on Silver Foil cardstock and adhered it to the card.

Next I took my super sharp Paper Snips and fussy cut out the vine from one of the patterns of the same Year of Cheer DSP.  I adhered this down using liquid glue.

Enjoy!

Did you have a nice Christmas?
We had my parents over and close friends and had so much fun.
And it even snowed on Christmas which honestly rarely happens.

I created this special message for today as it’s going to be bitterly cold here in Upstate New York, but our hearts are bursting with warmth!

I started out with Night of Navy cardstock.  Next I took the Color Theory DSP and the snowflakes from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut out snowflakes in different gradient blues.

Next I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock to run vertically down the card.  I took another panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Marina Mist cardstock to be a backdrop for my mittens.

I cut out the mittens using Marina Mist and Whisper White cardstock and the Many Mittens Framelits.  I tied a Night of Navy Baker’s Twine bow around the one.

Next I stamped out the words for my sentiment using the Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set and Night of Navy Ink.

Enjoy!

Last Week for Product Share

Did you have a nice Christmas?!
I sure hope you did!

I’ve been sort of missing for the past few days.
I’ve been having huge computer problems and unable to blog or post.

Today so far so good…fingers crossed!

I just wanted to remind you that this is the last week to order my 2018 Occasions Catalog Product Share. I’m really impressed with this catalog as Stampin’ Up! did a great job with the new stamps and bundles, but even more so with their ribbon, paper, and embellishments.

Product shares are a great way to get a little bit of all the new paper, ribbon, and embellishments.  You have until December 31st 12:00 pm EST to order a product share so don’t wait!!!

You can check out all the details here.

Stampin’ Up! Painted With Love Card

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

For today’s card I thought I’d pull out new product from the 2018 Occasions Catalog.  I’m really enjoying all the bright colors and new designs!

There’s nothing like new product!

My card today starts off with Melon Mambo cardstock.  I then took a panel of Rich Razzleberry cardstock, matted it on Whisper White cardstock, and adhered it to the card front.

Next I took a pattern from the NEW Painted with Love  Specialty DSP.  What makes this paper special is all the gold accents.  They add such a nice sparkle to the paper and I love the gold paired with these colors!  I matted this DSP on a panel of Gold Foil Sheet.

I cut out a label using the Everyday Label Punch and the Gold Foil Sheet.  I cut it in half and adhered each part opposite each other behind the DSP.

I stamped the heart in Melon Mambo ink on Whisper White cardstock from the NEW Sure Do Love You Stamp Set (isn’t that a great name!).  I stamped the sentiment banner in Rich Razzleberry Ink on Whisper White cardstock. I cut them both out with the coordinating NEW Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies (buy the bundle and save 10%).

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Ready to Pop and Bubbles & Fizz DSP

Today’s card starts out with Bermuda Bay cardstock.

I am realizing pretty quickly that I’m going to have to stock up on this color as it is everywhere in the Occasions catalog and definitely one of my favorite colors!

I then took a pattern from the Bubbles & Fizz DSP, matted it on Whisper White cardstock, and adhered it to the card front.

The Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper is free from the Sale-a-bration catalog which starts Jan 3rd.  Swing by for a Facebook Live tutorial tonight at 6:30 EST as I show how to make a card that uses not 1, not 2, but 3 FREE PRODUCTS from the Sale-a-bration catalog!

I adhered a vertical strip of Whisper White cardstock to be the backdrop for my bottles.  I took another pattern from the Bubbles & Fizz DSP and fussy cut out two bottles and adhered them to the card.

I stamped the “Ready to Pop” from the Ready to Pop stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink and the circle around it and cut it out using a circle from the Layering Circles Framelits.  I cut out a Calypso Coral banner to go behind it, as well as a few Daffodil Delight stars from the coordinating Popcorn Box Thinlits.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Petal Palette Sympathy

No one ever wants to have to send a sympathy card, but when you do, it might as well be made with love.

Unfortunately I have had to make a sympathy, but my hope is that it brings some comfort to the recipient.

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Petal Palette stamp set to stamp a leaf background on it.  I used Pool Party ink, stamping off first for a lighter shade.

I cut out a Pool Party circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and layered it with a Vellum leaf cut out from the Petals & More Thinlits.

I cut out a Night of Navy lattice from the Petals & More Thinlits and then stamped the sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Night of Navy and cut it out using one of the framelits from the Petals & More Thinlits.  I adhered the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside, I stamped the same leaf as the card front (stamping off first) in Pool Party ink and then stamped the sentiment from the Better Together Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink over it.

Enjoy!

My card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! NEW We Must Celebrate Card

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

You might look at today’s card and wonder whether it’s really me here…
I assure you that it’s still me.

You see I normally do very little coloring/shading in.  And this is my third card in one week that has coloring!  I’m having so much fun.

I couldn’t help myself and had to get this new We Must Celebrate Stamp SetThese little creatures are so adorable and can be used together, as well as stamped separately.  Today I decided to use the watercolor pencils to color them in, but I can’t wait to try the new Stampin’ Blends!

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then cut a pattern from the Wood Textures DSP and adhered it to the card front.   I adhered a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock to the top of the card front.  I then stamped the little creatures from the We Must Celebrate Stamp Set in Archival Black ink on a piece of Watercolor Paper.

I used the Watercolor Pencils to color the creatures in.  I also used the Old Olive pencil to add some shading underneath the animals and very light Bermuda Bay above them for a sky.  I then used an Aqua Painter to evenly distribute the color.  I matted this on a piece of Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the sentiment in Archival Black Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! NEW Picture Perfect Birthday

Today’s card uses lots of new product from the 2018 Occasions Catalog!!

Last week’s Facebook Live Tutorial was showing how I made this card and someone even remarked on how quickly it came together.

Great cards come from simple stamping, great patterned paper, and fun texture!

My card starts off with Peekaboo Peach cardstock.  Next I took a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock (see video for cut sizes) and embossed it using the NEW Simply Stripes embossing folder.  I adhered it on an angle.  Then I took a pattern from the Picture Perfect Party DSP which is full of bright colors and great images and adhered it on the opposite angle.

*The Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper is included in my 2018 Occasions Catalog Product Share.  See here for more details!*

Next I cut a strip of Bermuda Bay ribbon to go horizontally across the card.  I added a banner of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock just above that.

Lastly I created my stamped images from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set by first stamping the bottom of the candles in Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, and Lemon Lime Twist and then Peekaboo Peach for the flame (first stamping off for a lighter color).  I then stamped the birthday sentiment in Memento Black ink over the candles.

Enjoy!
