Stampin’ Up! Clean and Simple Butterfly Gala Card

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

My card is a simple design using the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set.

The card starts off with Grapefruit Grove cardstock.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Bermuda Bay cardstock.

I used the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut out a circle from Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, and Grapefruit Grove cardstock.

I stamped the butterflies in Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, and Grapefruit Grove ink and cut them out using the Butterfly Duet Punch and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay ink and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence Card Video Tutorial

Happy Wednesday everyone!!

So excited to share tonight’s live demonstration with you!

Today’s card is the one I shared last week.

It features the Floral Essence Stamp Set and uses the Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder to give lots of texture, but strategically leaves a spot for the sentiment to be stamped on.

I’ll be back tonight live at 7:30 pm on my Facebook page.  If you catch the tutorial live, you might just win tonight’s card!!

If you ever miss a tutorial, you can catch them on my YouTube channel.

To see how I created today’s card, check out the video below:


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

Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Grateful Card

We have a great new sketch challenge for you at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

Sketches are a great tool for creating a card.  I find they get the creativity going and are a starting point.  I sure hope you’ll play along this week!

My card today starts off with Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I then used the Stitched Lace Dies to cut a lace detail from Whisper White cardstock.  I cut a same size piece of Whisper White cardstock to adhere behind it.

I then used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to create a frame.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the To A Wile Rose Bundle and stamped the flower in Flirty Flamingo ink and leaf in Soft Sea Foam (both full strength for outside and stamping off for lighter shade).  I used the Wild Rose Dies to cut them out and a leaf from Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

I covered part of the sentiment from the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set with washi tape, inked it up in Flirty Flamingo ink, removed the washi tape, and stamped it down on Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut it out.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Clean and Simple Hello Wreath Card

I love, love, love clean, simple cards…
And that’s exactly what I have for you today.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then took a Blushing Bride pattern from the Subtles Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then cut out a “wreath” using the Stitched Shapes Dies and Layering Circles Dies.  I used the Cherry Blossoms Dies to cut out flowers from Blushing Bride cardstock and leaves from Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I adhered them down using liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel ink and then added a few rhinestones around.

Enjoy!

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

Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Welcome Card

The retired list has been announced and posted under the Last-Chance Product title on the website.

I am very sad to see many things go, but I think the #1 item I’ll miss is the Honey Bee Bundle and #2 item is the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder.

I created my card today a few weeks ago and ironically it uses both these items.

My card starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock.  I then embossed the card front with the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder.

I stamped the bee and the flower above and below it in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the bee in using the Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker and the flower using the Light Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Marker.

I cut this out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Well Said Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and Heat Set it.  Underneath it I wound some Mint Macaron and Polka Dot ribbon.  I also added a few Pearls around the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Neutral Color Card

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

I saw a card that Chloe Evans made the other day.  I was so inspired by the colors and how she used the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set that I decided to CASE (copy and selectively edit) it for my card today.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then stamped the large flower from the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set on it in Crumb Cake ink.

I then stamped the same flower in Memento Black ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Marker to add a highlight around the flowers.  I matted this on Basic Black cardstock and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock. I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut it out.

I stamped the single flower and leaf in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock, highlighted it with the Light Crumb Cake Blends Marker, and fussy cut it out.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Fun Fold Video Tutorial

This past Saturday five of us on the team did live demonstrations using product from the Ornate Garden Suite.

The Ornate Garden Suite is a sneak peek from the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  It is full of beautiful product and available to preorder right now to everyone!

My card today uses the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set and coordinating Ornate Borders Dies.

The gorgeous Designer Series Paper is the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It’s specialty paper because some of the patterns have a beautiful gold foil in them.

Although this event was this past Saturday, the Facebook page is still open, so you can go in and catch all five of the demonstrations.

Stampin’ Up! Dockside Dies Just a Hello Card

Hello everyone!

For today’s card I decided to mix the Dockside Dies, specifically the oar die, with the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.

Here’s the thing, I’ve never been sailing.  I’m not sure if you need an oar, but figured they both were used with water and it would work.

My card starts off with Seaside Spray cardstock, although you can’t see it.  I then adhered a pattern from the Come Sail Away DSP on the front.

I used the Dockside Dies to cut out a bunch of oars from Night of Navy and Seaside Spray cardstock.  I lined these across a panel of Whisper White cardstock and then matted it on Night of Navy cardstock.

Tip:  Stampin’ Up!’s Grid Paper is a great tool!

If you’re adhering various images down and you want to make sure they’re all straight,  line your paper up to the grid and then use Washi Tape to mark a straight line.  Make sure the Washi Tape goes from one straight line to the other…

… and then just adhere your images along the line!

I then stamped the sentiment from the A Little Lace Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Night of Navy cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Clean and Simple Just a Note

Why reinvent the wheel?
If there’s a card you’ve made that you love, CASE (copy and selectively edit) it.

That’s what I did for today.  My original card is this one here.  I kept today’s card very similar to it, but turned it around and used a different sentiment.

…and because this card comes together so quick, I decided to make a few of them and mail them out to encourage friends and family.

My card starts off with Real Red cardstock.

I then took a panel of Thick Whisper White cardstock and stamped the poppies from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set in Stazon black ink.

I used a semi dry Aqua Painter to add Real Red ink to the poppies.  I wrapped around some Real Red ribbon and matted it on Basic Black cardstock.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set in Real Red ink in the corner.

Enjoy!
