Stampin’ Up! You’re Inspiring Card – Kind Thoughts

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

My card starts off with Old Olive cardstock which I embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the daffodils from the You’re Inspiring Stamp Set on it in Memento Black ink.  I colored them in using Granny Apple Green, Pineapple Punch, and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I then took a sponge and rubbed the edge of the Whisper White cardstock in Pineapple Punch ink.

I mounted the Whisper White cardstock on Pineapple Punch cardstock.  I then adhered a pattern from the 2018-2020 Designer Series Paper pack below the daffodils.

I stamped the sentiment from the You’re Inspiring Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Pineapple Punch cardstock and tucked underneath it a Pearlized Doily, adhering it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Lastly, I added a few Pearls around the daffodils.

Enjoy!

Happy Monday everyone!

Thanks so much for checking out my cards this week.
You’re in for a treat – 4 out of my 5 cards use Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I guess saying I really like using them to color is an understatement.

My card today starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock.  Over that I adhered a pattern from the Wood Textures Designer Series paper. and just above that I adhered a bow using Linen Thread.

Next I used the Let It Ride Stamp Set and stamped the horse in Memento Black Ink.  I used Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers to color it in.  I used the masking technique to cover the horse and stamp the trees around it in Mossy Meadow ink.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

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

Stampin’ Up! Home To Roost

I hope you had a relaxing weekend.

This week ahead is my kids’ winter break.  I envision lots of pajama days and crafting in our future this week!
How about you?!

My card today starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock which I embossed using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  This is a fun folder from the Holiday Catalog that Stampin’ Up! brought back in the Occasions Catalog.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and first stamped the rooster from the Home To Roost Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I colored him using Real Red, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, and Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Keep in mind that the Home To Roost Stamp set is available for free only during Sale-A-Bration so don’t miss out on getting yours today with a $50 order.

I next did the masking technique to stamp the grass behind the rooster in Crumb Cake ink.

To do the masking technique: Stamp the rooster image on a piece of Post-It Note; fussy cut it out; place the Post-It Note over the rooster on the Whisper White cardstock; stamp the grass in Crumb Cake ink. Easy peasy.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Real Red cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Card

This is what I call a smorgasbord of a card.
I literally uses a little of this and a little of that.

I designed this card for a specific friend in mind and tried to tailor it to her.  She loves butterflies, the color hot pink, bling, and flowers.

Ironically enough I (unintentionally) basically did the same color combination as this card here.

My card starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock which I embossed using the Petal Pair Embossing Folder.

Next I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits and cut out two patterns from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, layering one of the other.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set in Lovely Lipstick ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I cut out a scalloped circle from Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet using the Layering Circle Framelits.

Next I used the Dark and Light Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers and colored in two butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly DSP and fussy cut them out.  I adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Beach Happy Card

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

My card today starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock.  I then took a panel of Bermuda Bay cardstock and embossed it using the Seaside Embossing Folder and then matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out a square and stamped the outline image from the Beach Happy stamp set in Memento Black ink.  I inked up the umbrella image in Coastal Cabana ink and the beach chair and water in Bermuda Bay ink.

I used the Under the Sea Thinlits to cut out two fishing nets from Crumb Cake cardstock and adhered them under the square.  I did a little trimming to get the look I wanted.  I also used the same thinlits to cut out the sand dollar.  I cut out two in order to adhere a second star over the first to make it more 3D.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set in Coastal Cabana ink.

Enjoy!
