Stampin’ Up! Love You To Pieces – Missing Piece

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is a sketch challenge.  I sure hope you’ll join us this week and play along!

My card starts off with Gorgeous Grape cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and adhered over it a pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper for the top and Highland Heather for the bottom.

Next I used the Puzzle Pieces Thinlits to cut out two Gorgeous Grape puzzle pieces.  I stamped the sentiment from the Love You To Pieces Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I then colored the flowers in with Highland Heather ink and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut it out using the same Puzzle Pieces Thinlits.

I wound behind the heart some Silver Thread and Gorgeous Grape ribbon.

I adhered the heart down using SNAIL adhesive, but for the one piece I used Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin Up Floral Frames Hello

Hello from Peru!

My family and I are currently visiting Peru on vacation.  I’m still blogging while away and the business still going strong.  I’ve posted some pictures of my trip so far on my Facebook page so swing over there to see our adventures in Cusco and Machu Picchu!

My card today starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

Next I stamped the “hello” from the Floral Frames stamp set in Versamark ink on a piece of Gold Foil.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I cut it out using a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits which I ran through twice to get the starburst edges.

Behind it I used the Foliage Frame Thinlits to cut out a bunch of leaves in Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy, Soft Sea Foam, and Gold Foil.  I also wound around some Gold Thread.

I adhered the sentiment down using Stampin’ Dimensionals and lastly added a few pearls around it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature Thinking of You

As you read this I am miles and miles away from my home.

My family and I are traveling to Peru for three weeks and first up is Machu Picchu!  We will be spending four days touring around Cusco and the Incan ruins.

We are really excited.  I hope to be able to share pictures with you along the way.

Today’s card is one that we made at my Annual Catalog launch party back in June.  I took inspiration right from the catalog.  This is a great tip if you’re stuck or wanting to know what to do with a stamp set – Look in the catalog to see how Stampin’ Up! used it.

My card starts off with Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Nature’s Poem DSP, matted it on Whisper White cardstock, and adhered it down.

This beautiful paper is included in the July Designer Series Paper promotion – Buy 3, Get 1 Free select DSP!

Next I stamped the leaf in Crumb Cake ink and then the sentiment from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Layering Circles framelits.  Behind the sentiment I snuck in some Burlap ribbon.

I then cut out two leaves, one from Rich Razzleberry cardstock and the other from Blackberry Bliss cardstock using the gorgeous Nature’s Roots Thinlits and then tied a Crumb Cake bow from the Nature’s Twine over them.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Foxy Friends – Love You More Card

This week we have a combined Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop and the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  I chose to work with the sketch.  Happy hopping!

My card today starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then matted a pattern from the Under the Mistletoe DSP on Whisper White cardstock.

This Designer Series Paper is a part of the Buy 3, Get 1 Free sale for the month of July!

I took another panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the trees from the Foxy Friends Stamp Set in Old Olive ink.  I used the masking technique to give the effect that one was behind the other.  I matted this on Night of Navy cardstock and adhered it to the card.

Next I used the Fox Builder Punch to create the fox using Soft Suede and Whisper White cardstock.  I used Memento Black ink to stamp the fox’s eyes and nose.

I stamped the word bubble of hearts by stamping the image from the Foxy Friends Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Real Red cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White embossing powder and heat set it.  I stamped the same image in Real Red ink on Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut the heart out for the fox’s heart.

I stamped the sentiment from the Another Wonderful Year in Real Red Ink and added a True Gentleman Button to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Blended Seasons – Best Wishes

For the month of August you will have the opportunity to order the Blended Seasons Bundle.  It will only be available in the month of August and only while supplies last!

This is a versatile bundle, perfecting for stamping and scrapbooking all year round!

I couldn’t decide whether to use Mango Melody cardstock for the background or Crumb Cake cardstock.  I went to my Facebook page to ask what everyone thought I should do.

I was surprised that the response was pretty 50/50.

Head over to my Facebook page to compare the two images and let me know which one you think I should’ve gone with.

My card today starts off with Mango Melody cardstock.  I then took a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and stamped the wheat image in Versamarkink multiple times across it.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool.

I cut out the stitched image from a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered it over the Crumb Cake cardstock using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the Washi Tape technique to stamp the sentiment in Memento Black ink on Calypso Coral cardstock.

Lastly I cut out two leaves, one from Calypso Coral cardstock and the other from Pumpkin Pie cardstock using the Stitched Seasons Framelits.  I tied a Linen Thread bow over the two leaves.

Enjoy!
